The committee appointed by the last

cultural Department and the State
Penitentiary spent yesterday in an
informal examination of the books of
the Agricultural Department. To day

Supreme Court Library.
The changes in the Supreme Court
librarysare now about completed and
the books are being put back on
the shelves. The judges' private
rooms have been removed from
the main floor to the gallery
and the books in the gallery
tnat are most often used have been
brought down where they will be more
accessible. By this change the shelf
room of the library has been increased
450 feet and much gained in con
venience and accessibility. Besides,
the library is now lighter and better
ventilated. While alterations are being
made it is probable also that the.
wooden staircase, which now takes
up-so much room, will be taken
out and a small spiral stairway
of iron put in. This would be an
immense improvement and the
change would cost only $200.- The
wooden stairway takes up some five
feet of floor space, while the proposed
iron stairway would take only five
feet. This change, however, has not
yet been definitely decided upon
, The immense weight of the. books
in this library is causing the founda
' tion to give way. This is not in the
main walls, however, but beneath
wooden posts under the sills of the
floor. These will be replaced by iron
posts placed on solid " stone founda
tions. - '
This building was never properly
constructed and will sooner- or later
have to be abandoned for other pur
poses than that for which it is now
used - .

Columbia, SL C, July 25. It is re
ported on excellent authority to-night
that the Columbia and Saluda canals,
having ajotal of 23,000 horse power,
have been purchased from their New
England owners by W. B. S. Whaley,
of this city, and J. L. Coker of Dar
lington, S. C. The belief is that Mr.
Johrf E. Searles, President of the
American Cotton Company, - which
owns the round bale patent, is behind
the deal. The price paid is said to an-
canal now furnishes power for several
cotton mills and the street railway ana
lighting plants, it is rumored, has for
sometime been desirous of taking an
interest in cotton manufacturing in
the South. Mr. Whaley is the presi
dent of one or more cotton mills in
Columbia, and Mr. Coker is owner of
a paper mill. Whether it is the pur
pose of consolidating the property or
not is not known.

Two More Captured and Will be Lynched
Early This Morning Posse in Pur
suit of Another Negro Concerned
in the Affair at Saffold.
Bainbridge, Ga., July. 23. One
negro lynched by hanging after being
tortured, two found dead, who were
possibly lynched, and an excited mob
chasing five other negroes is the situa
tion regarding the Ogletree outrage to
day. There is the wildest excitement
throughout this section of the State,
and it is feared by the law-abiding citi
zens that others will be put to death by
those who are searching for the ne
groes implicated in the assault of Mrs.
Ogletree at Saffold, Ga.. Thursday
Late last night Louis Sammins, a
big, yellow negro, who answered to
the description of one of the men who
committed the assault, was captured
near Brinson, Ga., and at midnight he
was taken to Saffold, and Mrs. Ogle
tree positively identified him. He
then made a full confession, swearing
that he belonged to a band of seven
other negroes who recently. broke jail
at Augusta, Ga., and who had been in
hiding in the Chattahoochee river bot
toms near Saffold for several weeks.
Intended to Rob.
lie said that heandanoth -he
gang were selected 'o rob Ogletree's
store and divide the spoils with their
pals in the swamp. No assault on the
woman was contemplated until the
two negroes saw her. Sammins gave
the name f his companions in the
crime and described them.
This morning at sunrise- Sammins
was taken to an oak tree near the
Ogletree house. He was chained to
the tree and parts of his body were cut
off. A stout rope was tied around his
neck and he was told that he could'
pray if he wanted to before being
"Oh, Lord, have mercy on my soul,"
was all that he could say. While a great
shout arose from 200 men, 50 of them
pulled away on the rope and up shot
Sammins' body through the air. He
kicked and swayed for ten minutes
and then life, became extinct. His
body was riddled with bullets by the
mob as it dispersed. The body was
left hanging to the limb to-day as an
object lesson to the negroes of the
r - Unknown Bodies Found.
Early this morning the bodies of
two unknown negroes were found on
the railroad embankment near Bain
bridge. A big crowd examined the
bodies. It was believed by some that
the men had been accidentally killed
by a train, but others asserted that
they, had been hanged by a mob, and
their bodies placed on the track to be
run over by a train. The heads of
both had been neatly scalped.
The officers of the law are power
less to check the fury of the people.
The man who was with Sammins has
not yet been captured. He is regarded
as the more guilty of the two, as he
proposed the assault on the woman
and first committed the crime. Sev
eral negroes have been captured and
taken before Mr. and Mrs. Ogletree,
who have declared them innocent.
I Two More of the Gang Captured.
Bainbridge, Ga., July 24. There
will be a double lynching in West
Bainbridge early to morrow morning
unless something unforseen occurs.
Two more members of the band of
robbers, murderers and rapists are in
the hands of a determined posse of
One of the captives is Charles Mack,
the companion in crime of Louis
Sammins, who was lynched yesterday.
It was Sammins and Mack who out
raged Mrs. Ogletree in the presence of
her husband at.Saffold, one holding a
pistol at the head of the husband to
nOATant Tits intapf apatirA-
Mack was captured at iron Uity by
white man named CardelL , Cardell
tried to get his prisoner through to the
jail and secreted him. A mob of sev
eral hundred country people met Car
dell and asked the whereabouts of his
prisoner. He declined to say. A rope
was quickly put about his neck and
he was given ten minutes in which to
give up the rapist or his life. He then
told where the negro was. In a short
while the crowd had Mack. While ar
rangements were in progress for the
lynching a telegram was received
from Iron City that another member
of the gang had been captured.
Will be Hanged To-day.
It would require several hours to get
the new prisoner to the scene, so it
was determined to postpone the execu
tion of Mack until to-morrow, at which
time it is proposed to have a double
hanging for the purpose of impressing
other possible members or me gang
who are not yet known. -'
Before Sammins was lynched he
confessed, and said that he and Mack
had robbed - the Ogletrees, and that
both had outraged the woman. While
they were committing their crimes, he
said, six others, whose names he gave,
were on watch outside. Mack is said
to have confessed, corroborating Sam
mins' statement. The men, ne saia,
were banded together for murder,
robbery and rape. Five of the negroes
named, .including Sammins, are now
dead, and every indication favors the
death of two more to-morrow.
ThA information is that the prisoner
from Iron City will arrive at about
2.50 A. M., and the lynching will
probably occur shortly thereafter.

Another Negro Killed.
' By Telegraph to thoMonung Star.
Bainbridge, GA.,tfuly 25. -Charles
Mack, the second of the ' Ogletree
rapists, was lynched this morning at
Saffold. His crime was committed in
Early county,, and citizens of this (De
catur) county refused to let the mob
bring the man into West Bainbridge,
since it was desired that an innocent
county should not suffer the odium cf
a lynching committed by citizens of
another county. .
Mack was therefore taken to Saffold,
the scene of his crime in Early county.
When that place was reached the mob
found the body of Louis Sammin, who
had been lynched forty-eight" hours
before, still,' swinging to the limb on
which had' been left. Mack was
carried before Mrs. Ogletree. She
recognized him at once, as did also
her husband. Mack then made a con
fession to every fact, except holding
a pistol to Ogletree's head while Sam
min committed his assault.
Mack was then taken to a tree near
that on which hung the body of Sam
min and strung up. As he was pulled
off the ground his body was riddled
with bullets.
The story that two negroes were
lynched and scalped in the lower part
of the county day before yesterday is
denied by the sheriff.
Troops Ordered to Bainbridge.
Savannah, July 25. Telegraphic
orders were received here to-night
from Governor Candler, addressed to
Captain Middleton, of the State militia,
at Valdosta, and Captain Smith, of
Thomasville, to "report to Bheriff Pat
terson at Bainbridge with all your
available men at once," and "to "act
strictlv under his orders." The Gov
ernor's message is mandatory. It says,
"Go at once." The commercial wires
having plosed, these messages were
transmitted over railroad wires from
here, and arrangements were imme-.
diateiy made for special cars on the
Plant system to take the troops. . The
tram will arrive at Bainbridge at 3
A: M. .
The troops are wanted to protect the
sheriff and the jail against the attack
of a mob- that is after John Williams,
a negro who is charged with assault
and attempt to rape upon two white
girls. Williams entered their room
while they were asleep and had seized
one of the girls when he was frighten
ed away. A large crowd of country
people are in town, and swear they
will have Williams if they have to
dynamite the jail. The Decatur jail
is one of the strongest in the State.
Should an attack upon it be made be
fore the arrival of the troops there
would probably be bloodsned.
An Unknown Negro Killed.
Atlanta, Ga., July 25. A special
to the Constitution from Leesburg,
Ga , says:
An unknown negro was shot and
killed in a remote part of this county
yesterday by a posse composed of three
men. There were two negroes in nia
ing in that vicinity, and they were
thought to be members of the Bain
bridge gang. G. A. McDonald, who
discovered the negroes, came to town
and reported the matter. Both the
sheriff and his deputy being out of
town, Mr McDonald was advised to
get up a posse and arrest the negroes.
This he did, getting W. E. Smith and
W. H. Sanders to accompany him on
his mission. When the negroes were
approached they showed fight and
one of them was killed, the other get
ting away. The coroner's jury has
returned a verdict that the dead man
was -killed by shots fired by the three
men named in self defence.

and dragged the. motorman and con

their fists and other weapons injuries

the rioters had taken refuge in the
factory which stands under the ap

was surrounded and the premises'
searched, but there was no clue by
which the guilty ones could be picked
out. i

that existed between the storied gov

not allowed to use the public hydrants
to get water, it is said, and upon
various occasions bayonets were of

Cleveland cohorts had any more
trouble about getting water, Cleveland
which pumps the water to the suburb,
would attempt to abrogate the water
truce and let the whole hamlet go
thirsty. Mayor Farley afso issued a
statement to the strikers in ;which he
said that a man who was more loyal to
his labor union than to himself and his

To Patch Up an Agreement. -
A step in which there is hope of con
ciliating the street car company' and
its striking employes, was taken here
to night by the committees of the
council which succeeded in patching
up an agreement over the difficulties
that caused the first strike a month
ago. The committee to-night made
a request for a special meeting of the
council to meet to-morrow night to
discuss ways and means of putting an
end to the present distressing situa

the old committee will be appointed
and at once set about its labors.
The action of the old committee in

By Telegraph to the Morning Star.
Bainbridge, Ga., July 26. On ac
count of the excited stale of the peo
ple here, Sheriff Patterson to-night
took John Williams, the negro rapis
in jail here, and whose life has been
clamored for by a mob for two days, to
Thomasville for safe-keeping. Under
guard of two companies of militia
which arrived this morning and be
tween lines of ieering people, the
negro was taken to the depot and put
aboard a Plant train due to arrive in
Thomasville at 7 P. M. There is some
talk of the mob going to Thomasville,
but this is not taken in any serious-,
nessandit is thought the trouble is
over. ,
The action of the leading citizens of
the town late last night in confronting
the mob as it marched to the jail,
saved the life of Williams. The lynch
ing party with dynamite and telegraph
poles for battering rams was on its
way to the jail when Judge Bower and
two other gentlemen stopped the mob
and Dlead with them to let the law take
its course. Judge Bower promised a
special term to try Williams and
promised speedy justice. After some
replies from members of the mob they
finally disbanded and the night was
passed in quiet.

Atlanta, Ga., July 26. Sheriff
Reeves, of Pike county, Alabama,
placed Albert Wright, one of the
negroes accused of assaulting Mrs.
Ogletree, in jail here this afternoon.
The sheriff stated that when the
train passed through Newnan, a mob
of armed men boarded it and demand
ed that the prisoner be turned over to
them. Wright had been concealed in
the baggage car, however, before New
nan was reached and after making
what they thought to be a thorough
search of the train the would-be
lynchers permitted the train to pull
out, thinking the negro was not aboard.
The negro denies his guilt, but Sheriff
Reeves stattes that he has been identi
fied by Mr. Ogletree.

New York. July 26. Business
the Cotton Exchange to-day consisted
largely in switching from the near to
the remote futures. There was, how
ever, some investment buying and
more considerable covering, the basis
of which was, for the most part, a
reconsideration of the weekly govern
ment report The report indicated a
poor situation in the Carolinas, with
the Georgia condition also unsatisfac
tory by reason of shedding, while
Texas showed a poor average than a
week ago. In its entirety the govern
ment report, as locally considered,
became a bullish offset to the cotton
crop advices so numerously in circu
lation at the present time. The mar
ket closed steady and four to six points
net higher. ;
