AN AGED WOMAN
KILLEQ BY NEGROES
Hlorrilho Crime Stirs Abbeville Coun.
ty. Special Tem of Court Ordered.
Abbeville, March 17.-Mrs. M. E.
Scott, a widow 80 years of age, was
attacked by a negro in her hlome nar
Lowndesville early yesterday morning,
suffering injuries from which she died
this afternoon. Charles Logan, cou
fessing to the crime, was arrested and
taken to the jail at Abbeville, frovn
Which he was removed to Greenwood
to be taken1 to the penitentiary at
Columbia for safekeeping. Logan is
a young negro who has recently comi
to South Carolina from Georgia.
Mus. Scott lived alone with her
granddaughter, a girl of 1.1 or, 15
years of age. .Slie had been accus
tomed .to arise during the night to
smoke a pipe and the negro is said
t. have waitched the house and known
o? this practice.
rarlv yesterday morning Logan is
said to have entered the house while
Mrs. Scott was smoking her nightly
11,e and after striking her in the he:td
mi'h.1 a hammer to have attellptel to
enter the room of tile granddaughter.
The girl, however, escaped by a win
dow and ran to a nearby house.
Logan was arrested today by Mag
istrate Mosley I-uckttbee, who suc
ceeded in getting his prisoner away
from a crowd of angry Lowndesville
citizens who seemed disposed to vio
lence. With Jesse Cann and the two
Harper brothers the magistrate
brought tho negro to the Abbeville
jail.
Sheriff Lyon took no chances on a
lynching here and at once removed
L6ganl to tile Greenwood jail pending
his further removal to the peniten
tiary. A negro, Tom Murray, was
convicted of manslaughter recently
an(] sentenced to serve flve years and
as the feeling against this negro had
[,(tn ligh when lie was tried on the
charge of murder, the sheriff decided
that it would be well to take him to
Columbia with Logan. Ti sheriff was
sure that if a mob succeeded in en
tering the Jail to lynch Logan it
-would lynch Murray also.
A negro nameid Matthews was
brought here tonight charged with be
ing implicated in tile affair at
Lowndesville. He declares, however,
that lie can prove an alibi, having
spelit the night in Anderson.
Abbeville citizens have communi
eated with Gov. Manning and urged
him to call a speielal term1 of court to
try Logan.
irs. Peott was well kiiowin in
Lowndesville. She was a sister of
Kingleton S. 11oles who has made the
gover'nment estimates oil crops for
this section for a mnu1litber of years.

last nlighit by P. T1. Siproulse, depu~lty
sheriff of Greenw"oodl county. "He con1
fossed to me that he did( it," Mr.
Sprouse said, on arrivinig in Columbia.
Tow Murriay, unader' senltenice of fly'e
years for' manslaughter, at the sug
gestion of the Abbeville county sher'
1ff, was brought along with Logan al
so, out of abundance of precaution.
Tile dlepuity (1d1idlot knowv whlat dispo
sition had been mfadle of another negro,
WVill Johnson, who was said to have
been arrested in. company with Logan.
He had hleardl, lie said, that Johnson
had been released. On tile train fromn
Greenwood to Columbia, Logan, un
dier questioning by a passenger, told
a story substantially as follows:
Tuesday afternoon a negro named
Will Johnson came out from Lowndos
ville with a pint of whiskey. They
drank thle liquor together, Johnson
saidl, "Let's go get old -Mrs. Scott's
money." .When they reached the
h1ous8 JTohnson climbed ini thlrough a
window. Logan had a r'ock in hils
hland. Mr's. Scott was sitting before
the fireplace. Somewhier0 inside John
'ion hlad picked up a hammer. 'Logan
saw nothing of the young wom'an.
Johnson said1, "Now keel) still, I'm
going to make a noise." Johnson at
tracted the attention of Mrs. Scott
and when she came toward tile room
in which lie was 110 threw tile hiammei'
and she Tell.,Logan fled. After some
minutes lie was joinedl by Johnson,
They gpent thie night at Logan's 110111
and wore captured In the morning.
Th~ey lhad agreed not to confess, but
Johnson after his ari'est accused hima
