Landed in Columbia
Floyd McCullum, the nerc
murderer who committed twc
fiendish crimes in the Crow
Creek section of Pickens county
last week, was captured near
Franklin, N. C., Friday morn
ing by Sheriff R. R. Roark and
Policeman H. A. Nealey, of
Pickens, who were accompanied
by Dover Hinkle and Fred Whit
mire, of the upper part of the
The officers took the prisoner
on a branch line railroad from
Franklin to Cornelia,Ga., where
they changed to the main line
and carried the prisoner to Co
lumbia. The people in Pickens
knew nothing of the capture
until the negro was out of reach
and well on the way to the pen
The chase for the negro began
Tuesday night and was inces
sant until the capture Friday
morning, being conduct3d with
great skill and fortitude. During
that time the officers chased the
fiend about 135 'idiles through
swamps and mountains and
slent but five hours and ate two
meals. The negro had a long
start and, at times the hunt
seemed fruitless, but with cour
age and determination which
you seldom hear of except in
novels, the officers pushed on.
He had inquired along his route
the direction -to Asheville, while
at the same time he was headed
for the Tennessee line. The of
ficers came upon him in what is
known as Sugar Fork,ten or fif
teen miles from tne Tennessee
line in North Carolina.
The negro made no resistance
when captured. He denied the
crime, but admitted that he was
in the neighborhood of the dead
man's home on Monday night.
He is known by the names of
Floyd McCullum, Alex McLain
and Clate Humphrey.
A reward of $300 had been of
fered for the capture of the ne
gro, Sheriff Roark offering to
pay $50 and Gov.Blease $250. It
is likely that the reward offered
by the governor will be divided
between Sheriff Roark and Chief
Nealey. Pickens county was
greatly stirred by the murder of
Hendrix and a lynching could
hardlyhave beers averted had the
negro been brought to-the Pick

Card From Mr. Robinson
Feeling that great injustice
and gross inequality is shown
the old soldier by existing pen
sion laws in this state, and de
siring that efforts be made to
correct some of the eyils, quite
a number of the veterans had a
meeting at the court house last
Monday and* appointed a com
mittee to ask me to run for the
house of representatives in the
approaching e16ction in their in
terest and try to have some of
the existing evils in the pension
I have considered the request
of these honored men seriously
and have tried to reach a con
clusion where I could accede to
their call av d place myself at
their service, but cannot, Their
cause is a just one and there are
no men in the world it-would be
a greater pleasure for me to
serve than the old soldiers of the
Confederacy, but circumstances
and conditions of a personal na
ture make it impossible for me
to serve them now.
I very much appreciate this
evpression of their confidence
and hope some day to be of ser
vice to them. Respectfully,
-C. E. ROBINSON.
