Covered Up in Bed—The Story of the
Brutal Crime—How a Church Fair
Wound Up in a Fight.
One of the perpetrators of the most fiend
ish and diabolical crime that has been com
mitted in Chatham county for years was
captured yesterday. The murder was com
mitted about three miles out on the Ogee
ehee road on Saturday uiglit, Aug. ‘-’O. At
this place there is a small settlement of col
ored people, most of the men working on the
adjacent plantations. They seldom have
trouble among themselves, but the city peo
ple go out there often, filled np with bad
whisky, and fights generally result. The
murder arose from such a case. A party
of city men went out to assist at a church
festival, held there Saturday night. Bad
whisky and bad characters are a hard com
bination, and the church party were soon in
A UCMPUB REIGNS.
A sort of free fight was started by two of
the women, and clubs, knives and razors
were trumps. Tiny Charlton attempted to
stop the fight, but got a blow or two for his
pains. Finally the women were separated,
but the bad feeling aroused was kept alive
all the evening. Whisky was plentiful and
quarrels were numeiims. Finally when
tney broke up and went out on the road to
fo home, Charlton was knocked down by
orn Green, and Berry Cook stabbed him in
the throat with a small pen-knife. Charl
ton’s wife had then just appeared on the
scene and attempted to rescue him and get
him safely home. He was then very weak
from the effects of the bio w and the stab,
and she had to support him all the way.
When about half way to his house he was
again assaulted by Jun Cook and William
a razor’s deadly work.
Charlton's head was resting over on his
wife’s shoulder, and Cook, drawing a razor,
drew it from back of his neck clear around
till the blade struck the jawbone, almost
entirely severing the head from the body.
Charlton’s wife screamed for help, and the
men then ran off across the fields. Charlton
was carried into the house, but he died
in a very few minutes. Since then
nothing has been seen of the four men
implicated in the brutal affair. They
disappeared, but it was rumored that they
were hiding in the neighborhood, and would
be surrendered as soon as a reward was
offered. Officers went out to look for them,
but never succeeded in finding them. Charl
ton had a friend named Butler, who lives in
Brownsville, however, who knew the men,
and who has been watching for them to get
a chance to deliver them up.
CAPTURED IS BED.
Last night Jim Cook came up from
Darien, and went to a house on Margaret
and West Boundary streets. Butler saw
and recognized him, and went off at once to
find a policeman. He met Officer Neid
linger, and told him that he had located
Cook, and could catch him Neidlinger
called Officer Masters to assist him. and the
three proceede 1 to the house where Cook
was. Masters and Butler remained
on the outside, while Neidlinger
went in to search for his man.
At first he could not find hun, and he began
to fear that the murderer had given him I
the slip when he noticed a bed that looked
as if it was occupied. He went over to it
and started to raise the covers, but found
they were held down. He gave them
a jerk, and when they came
off they revealed Cook lying there
chagrined at the failure of his plan to c >n
ccal himself. He was then placed under
arrest and taken to the barracks, where he
was locked up on a charge of murder. Cook
will say nothing about the affair more than
to deny that he had anything to do with it.
LIBELED FOR SALVAGE.
The British Steamer Naples Seized by
the Tow-Boat Company.
The British steamship Naples was libeled
yesterday by the Propeller Tow-Boat Com
pany for salvage. When the Naples caught
fire last October the tow-boat company sent
its tugs to her assistance. The Forest City
was first alongside and poured streams
into the vessel's hold until she
was filled. The Constitution and
Cambria were also at the fire. After the
vessel was filled they pumped the water out.
The tow-boat company had its tugs at work
all night and all the next day on the vessel
and rendered the captain a bill for services.
The claim was rejected as extortionate
and the Tow Boat Company has attached
the vessel. The vessel and her cargo is
valued at $350,000. The Tow Boat Com
pany claimed S2O per hour for the services
of its tugs, and tho court will lie asked to
award such amount as it may deem proper.
The claims of tho Lighterage Company and
Ward & Churchill’s claims as stevedores
were also rejected. The vessel was in pos
session of a United States Mai-shal last night.
A bond for $25,000 will be filed this morning
and the vessel will he released. The Naples’
affaiis are in a very unsettled state. There
are a number of claims against the
ship amounting altogether to about $12,000,
which are awaiting adjustment. A part
of her cargo was sent forward and has been
sold on the other side. There are claims
upon that whiqh will most likely have to be
adjusted in the courts.

THE NEW SHELL ROAD.
The Isle of Hope Road Incorporators
Meet and Organize.
The incorjiorators and others interested in
building a short line shell road to the Isle of
Hope, met yesterday at noon at Metropoli
tan Hall. The meeting was organized by
electing Isaac Beckett, Esq., Chairman, and
John W. Burroughs, Esq., Secretary.
Mr. C. H. Dorsett stated the object of the
meeting, and read the charter of the com
pany. He also submitted a map prepared
by a well-known engineer, showing the pro
pe .ed road, with an estimate of the cost of
building it, which is $4,752 42.
There was some discussion regarding the
right of way and also in regard to the fig
liras named as the preliable cost of the road.
The general impression was that the road
would cost much more than the sum stated.
Mr. J. M. Solomons suggested that be
fore anything was done toward a further
organization, all questions of the right of
way should be settled.
On motion, Messrs. J. M. Solomons, James
Leonard, A. G. Guerard, Grass and Nelson
were appointed a committee to
nominate seven directors to serve
until the annual meeting in
May. The committee submitted the names
of the following gentlemen, who were unan
imously elected" J. it. Estill, A. G. Guerard,
S. F. Dupon, R. M. Demere, Isaac Beckett,
Charles H. Dorsett and Dederich Grimm.
On motion, Messrs. Dorsett, Demere and
Beckitt were appointed a committee to se
cure right of way and procure such infor
mation as may be pertinent to the purposes
of the organization.
The chairman suggested that it was in
order for those present to subscribe to the
stock of the company, and signatures were
at once obtained for 178 shares of stock,
amounting to $2,250.
The meeting then adjourned subject to
the call of the Board of Directors.
The route of the proposed road is an air
line from Estill avenue, in the southern
limits of the city, to the site of the old Isle
of Hope church, and is four and three
quarter miles in length. It is said that the
road will lessen the distance from the city
to Isle of Hope about three miles.
A FRISKY YOUNG TEXAN. .
He Knocks Down a Boy and Makes a
Crowd Give Way.
A vicious young mustang, that was too
ambitious for his sleepy driver, kicked up
bis heels and made a break through Bull
and Broughton streets during the busiest
part of yesterday aftemooD. The mustang
was hitched to a street wagon, but the
wagon didn't stand any kind
of a show. It rattled around the runaway’s
heels and bobbed over the crossings, swing
ing from one side of the street to the other,
and bumping across the sidewalks
with as little regard as if it were
a tin can at the end of a dog’s
tail. The mustang didn’t seem to mind
it except, perhaps, that it made him all the
merrier. He was in for a run, and he had
it, and all his own way, too. Most people
got out of his way as soon as they could con
veniently. The iadies scampered from the
sidewalks into the stores, aud everybody
respected the Texan’s presence. He crossed
Broughton street with a rattle and bang,
and hugging his ears close to his head he
gathered himself and headed for the Screven
blouse. Just before he got there he changed
his mind, and making a quick turn toward
the Market rounded the corner in front of
Butler’s drug store. Ralph Thomson, the
10-year-old son of Mr. Thomas F.
Thomson, was crossing the street
and the mustang knocked him
down, but he didn’t mean to. As he
came upon the body he shied to one side and
the front wheel of the wagon struck a tele
graph pole. This brought things to a stand
still. It was a lively shook and the wagon
got the worst of it. The boy was more
scared than hurt, although he had a narrow
escajie. The runaway was captured, and
after being tied was led off—a captiv \ A
big crowd collected and the police did their
duty to keep it back.

MAKING THE BEST OF IT.
HOW CASSIDY SPENDS HIS TIME
IN HIS CELL.
His Face Whiter but His Grip as Good
as It Was When He Fought the Po
lice—He Keeps a Stiff Upper Lip and
Refuses to Talk About His Case.
A visit was paid to Tom Cassidy yester
day to see how' he took the indictment that
was found against him. He is the same
Tom Cassidy that he was when he whipped
six policemen without a weapon. He looks
a little whiter because the tan of the sun
has worn off from his face, and that gives
to the casual observer the idea that he is
thinner and weaker, but none of them want
to tackle him to find out whether he is
weaker or not. if they did they would
probably never be able to tell just how
much weaker he is.
Ho put his hand through the
door to shake with the Mornino
News reporter, and his grip indicated
that the giant had lost none of his
strength. If he feels any the worse for the
indictment he lias power enough over him
self to conceal his emotions, for he laughs
and chats as pleasantly anil good humor
edly as ever he did. He was eating his din
ner when he was seen, and his appetite was
good. He ate with a relish that betokened
good health, and his meal was a hearty one.
In speaking of himself, he said that he had
not suffered any since he had been in jail.
He of course disliked the confinement,
but he hod managed to get along quite con
tentedly, being a ma i of sufficient intelli
gence to accommodate himself to circum
stances, without fretting for his liberty
when he could not get it. His friends look
after all his wants and keep him well sup
plied with whatever may make his life in
prison more pleasant. Cassidy’s manner
betokens anything but a conscience bur
dened with guilt, and even in his trying
situation his Irish wit shows itself, as it gets
off some jest upon the circumstances of the

The one hundred and fourteenth meeting
of City Council, and the last of the out

night It was plain to see, says the News

extraordinary interest. There were no

while the Clerk’s office was occupied by an
unusually large number of spectators as
sembled to see the city fathers make then
bow and retire. Mayor Courtenay made a
brief farewell speech, and then surrendered
the chair, and the committee appointed to
submit resolutions upon his retirement
made its report. The report reviewed con
cisely the work of the City Council during
the past eight years and contained a hand
some and well-deserved recognition of the
services of Mayor Courtenay, by whose gift
for organization, unbending force of will,
ceaseless vig lance, been personal interest in
all that <o i erns the city, patriotic and

The Superintendent and other employes
of the Pullman Palace Car Company at
Jacksonville were nearly frightened out of
their wits Monday over the finding of n
supposed dynamite cartridge in a car direct
from Cincinnati. The harmless looking
little article was tied to a ten-foot pole and
taken to Capt. Murphy, of tho Waycross
police. Capt. Murphy handled the thing
in a gingerly fashion until an expert pro
nounced it a simple piece of cable for con
veying electric currents. To say they all
feel sold is putting it very mildly.
Another new South Carolina road asking
a charter is the Eastern, Barnwell and
Western railroad. The incorporators are:
W. H. Duncan, L. T. Izlar, W. P. Murphy,
C. Eberhanlt, H. W. Kearse, W. N. Jones,
J. C. McMillan, H. N. Folke, A. B.
Stephens, J. B. Lockwood, N. F. Kirkland,
J. Wyman Jenny. Capital stock $200,000,
in shares of SSO, with the privilege of in
creasing to $5,000,000, and to organize when
$50,000 shall have been subscribed. The
road is designed to run “from Charleston,
through the counties of Colleton, Barnwell
and Aiken, to some point on the Savannah
river between Hamburg and Brown’s Land
ing, as the company, when formed may de
termine upon, and the company is to have
the exclusive right to construct and operate
the railroad, or any portion or section there
of.” The company is also “authorized and
empowered to build, purchase, own, hold,
use, sell, or otherwise dispose of, steamships
and sailing vessels in connection with their
railroad transportation, so as to carry on
the business of a general through, coastwise
and foreign transportation to and from any
point of its lines and connections.” The
construction of the road must be com
menced within two years from the passage
of the act.
Tiffany’s Jewelry Palace.
There are few persons who have not at
least heard of Tiffany’s celebrated Jewelry
and Art House, and a great many other
people imagine that nothing of good quality
can be bad except at Tiffany’s. This is a
follacious idea, as there isn’t the slightest
necessity for sending from home for a single
articlo in this line. We have right here as
fine and varied a stock of Jewelry, Dia
monds, Bronzes, etc., as cin be found any
where in the United States, a :d at prices as
low as can be obtained at Tif
fany’s or elsewhere. We would di
rect especial attention to our very
elaborate display of solid Silver Ware,
as also a select line of Piated Ware. We
make a feature of Ladies’ Watches, Chains
aud Charms, and those contemplating holi
day gifts can be suited in every regard.
Our display of tbe famous Lemaire’s Opera
Glasses is very complete and this quality
and fine workmanship does not need com
mendation at our hands. We have some of
the prettiest and most novel conceits in
Bronze Ornaments that one often sees, and
invite attention to them. A gold-headed
Silk Umbrella makes a neat and inexpensive
present, and we have them in great variety
of design of ornamentation. It is not pos
sible to describe more than some of our
leading articles in limited space, and, in
face, by a personal inspection only can the
extent of our efforts this season be appre
ciated. We do not allow the slightest mis
representation, aud where our guarantee is
placed it can be relied on to attach the re
sponsibility that belongs to any first-class
house. Our many patrons of the past
are our best vouchers, and we certainly
intend to retain our place in their popular
regard. The raffle list for the magnificent
Diamond Necklace is filling up very rapidly.
Bear in mind that a visit to our establish
ment carries no obligation to buy with it.
We are just as glad to ste the chance vis
itor as the most determined buyer.
