Harpers, June 21:?Information readied here on Friday, the 18th inst. of a criminal assault committed by a negro named Al frea Jenkins on a white lady in Georgetown county. Sheriff Scurrv took the nej^ro to Columbia on the afternoon train and plated him in the State penitentiary for safe-keeping. The people in and around Georgetown and ifosetnarv were terribly j worked up over the outrageous ' crime, and had not the Sheriff used every precaution tor his' protection, no doubt the brute would have been strung before now to a lamp post. Sheriff', Scurry deserves much credit for tbe pains he took for his prison- j er's protection, Several telegrams were sent Governor An-, sei in reierence to uic mauci, j I note with much pleasure thej call meeting* made by the pro-! bfbitioa element for a meeting at the county seat touay, Junej 21, to formulate plans to begin j the prohibition campaign. I be-; lieVe i voice the sentiment of the people in this, the iower part of the county, when 1 say we all stand ready to do all we can between the two rivers.Santeeand Black, to overthrow the whisky traffic in Williamsburg | county and we will soon have a j chance to show our moral purpose bxl our votes, and I hope every man in our county will turn out with both a determination and a fervent prayer to the Almighty to overthrow this evil in our county. Any assistance Our people can render in this effort to overthrow the whisky evil they stand ever ready to give. The negro, Albert Bellany, who committed murder in the town of Harpers in August, 1908, Vas tried in Georgetown last week and found guilty of manslaughter, being sentenced by Judge John S Wilson to live years in the penitentiary. This case is clear m the minds of The Kecord's readers. The aegro < took a rail and struck Charlie ? Scott on the boad, killing him instantly. This family of Hannah negroes are notorious in the counties of Williamsburg and Georgetown for their crimes. fve Hannah, who was tried in lliamsburg county some years * ago for the murder of his own father, Alfred Hannah, is a brother of Albert Hannah, alias Bellany: also Alton Hannah, another brother, was tried in Georgetown county three years ago and sentenced to 4 V years on the chaingang for 'housebreaking and larceny, escaping from o-nnrr within three months ? ? ^ ?o and being: now at large. It will be remembered that Sheriff Graham arrested Albert Hannah for this crime while he was whitewashing the jail. He was at the time living on Mr James Epps' plantation and had given goods of considerable value to nearly all the negroes on the place, which were recovered and proven to be stolen from the store of W 8 Camlin, Jr, of Harpers. Every one of this set of negroes was convicted before he was 18 years old. SUBSCBIBEK. vt j Mat* Pib? Ptfiif in naiMr. . 1IBVU ??w? ?

Georgetown, June ?At 4 o'clock this afternoon word was hurriedly brought to Sherill Scurry that a criminal assault had just been I committed upon the person of a young woman school teacher at Grab Hall, a place immediately across Winvah buy from Georgetown, on Waccainaw Neck. Tne young lady! boards at the home of Mr Iluck Cains and while out driving with, one ef the Cains children, a little girl, she was dragged from the buggy and carried into the woods by her; assailant, who ordered the child to llee at the peril of her life. The child's father returned with her to j the spot to fiud the young lady in a terrible plight, and bloody from the j fearful struggle which she had waged j bravely. The man had tied. THE NEGKO CAUGHT. Georgetown, June 19:?By strate- j gy Sheriff C W Scurry, having in ; charge Alfied Jenkins, alias "Slippy i Joint," the alleged assailant of the! young lady school teacher on Wacca-j maw yesterday, sent him out of town j by automobile to Sampit station, j ? 1- ? ? A I. ? /?>.! fiP *??A4 am 4 1\ I m I wuere tue sueriu jucu uuu tvuiv mu? aboard the afternoon train for Columbia,thus eluding the vigilance of those who believed ir. executing summary vengeance upon him. It was aj most carefully planned scheme on the part of the sheriff, which doubtles saved his life temporarily. The man was canght answering the description giveu.in company with two other negroes, and the foot priuts at the scene and on the trail were identified almost beyond the possibility of a doubt. The trio were arrested. It only remained for the man to be identified by his intended victim. The sheriff was the only one who heard this testimony and reported that it was very uncertain. The uncertainty of its being the right man undoubtedly averted a lynching. The negro Jenkins is an ex-conI vict and has recently returned from ,the Charleston chaingang. He is a j native ef the Friendfield plantation,, on Waccamaw Neck, but has always' borne the character of an idle, worth-1 less fellow. He is aboit 20 years of age and a black negro. He was dei onriho/t ae hpinor VPfV hlaP.lf. and it was found that he had painted hist face blacker than the usual color with soot and grease. This he had attempted to remove, probably after the crime. The dress of the young lady was smeared with this grease. It is stated that that the negro was really identified absolutely when taken before her. It is stated positively that the youngv lady was Dot harmed to any extent, as the man was frightened off. She fought bravely until Mr Cains came to herrescue.

The following editorial from the Manning Times puts the situation sijuarelv up to the people of Saudv Grove township. In the fac? of existing circumstances the taxpayers >f K... ?vi!l trn s!nw VI wlJUL WWII "111 vvwvij before putting themselves in a position to be called on to "cough-up*' for another court house. "We caution the citizens of Sandy (Jrove to be not deceived by some of the fallacious statements now being made to induce votes for the new county. Clarendon has taken upou herself a large bouded indebtedness, $70,000, and Sandy Grove township, whether it leaves Clareudon or remains, will have to pay its proportion. It is urged by some that if the people of Saudy Grove township will vote for the new county they will escape taxation for Clarendon's bonds. It is not true, but ou the other hand, if they vote themselves into a new county they will not only have to pay their pro-' portion on Clarendon's bonds, but thev will also have to bear their proportion of the expense for a new court house, jail aud other public buiidiugs. lu other words they will be doublv taxed. The Iiutledge county advocates claim that Lake City will contribute enough money to build a court house and jail. We do not believe anything of the sort. Other towns have made similar promises, but so far as we know, the promise failed immediately after the new county was created. There is the new oounty of Calhoun. All manner of promises were made by the town of St Matthews before the county was created. St Matthews became the county seat a I as yet no court house has been built and will not be built until the county is bonded to raise the money. "If the Lake City or Olanta people are in earnest to have their towns the county seats let them deposit not less than $50,000 in trust iu some bank, conditioned upon the failure to secure the county seat, the money to be refunded, but if the county seat is secured, this $50,000 be expended in the necessary public buildings. If this is done, it will end the new county agitation. "The people of Sandy Grove hold the key to the situation. They can and should demand relief from any taxation for public bnildings in a j new county, aud, too, they should I have a say ro in the character of i - ?- .4 public DQildiDgs co go up; uecause 11 the projectors of the new county scheme desiring to speculate on Lake City property find they must prom< ise to build a court house and jail, unless the character of buildings are specified, they can put up inexpensire shacks, and later on after they hare the Sandy Grorers in their trap, by force of numbers, force upon them a heary bond issue tc erect first class public buildings. Be not deceired by the tempting promises of the new county advocates. We hare been told that s prominent citizen of Sandy Grove, now a warm supporter of Rutledge county, has been promised the office of clerk of court. Just how manj others in that township hare been promised the public offices we dc not know, bnt we do know thai the goods cannot be delivered, because the county offices hare to b< voted for, and no man or set of men can control the votes of a people. We do not want Clarendon to berl K<vna/1 klif I f if 1q fn ki UU111C UIOKUCU1UCICU) VUV u >v ao vv i/v theo let those people in Sandy Grow understand that when they vot< themselves out of Clarendon they d( not escape taiation for Clarendon'! $70,000 bonds."
