One Arrest Leads to
Others; All Admit
Their Guilt
For several months the warehoase
at the Williams ton wharf has been
broken into now and then and qnanti
of sugar s.olen. The police force
waa bttiuetl for a time in that the)
were no: able to get any due as to
where the sugar was going. Recently,
however, a little information leaked
from the rubbers' combination which
reveeled the whole scheme and a trap
was set.
Saturday night, Luther Peel the I
Deputy Sheriff and two extra depotie»'
went to the warehouse for the pur
poee of waylaying the robbers. Tbo> j
found that the warehouse had al- J
ready been broken open, but no sugar
was found by the robbers, so th*
drayman was told not to go down as
it would be useless.
The oflkers thinking they had
sufficient evidence to trap the rogues,
they started to the home of Ben
Biggs, a negro. At the home of Biggs
they received a thread that led them
to the home of John 1. Hyman, a negro
thief with a reputation. The officer*
rolled Hyman out of bed and began
to quoation him and for two hoars he
evaded their questions, but ftnaDy
things became too hot for him and he
came across with the whale story, tcfl
tng how he had gone into the ware
boose and stolen the sugar. This he
did on several occasion.-: r.nd delivered
it to Jesse Bogern a colored man on
the Skewarkee road. Hyman was then
placed in jafl sad the officers went for
Rrgere who also came across and
said that he was not alone, bat haul
ed the goods with the car of Wdl
MiUr and that Mills war. along, driv
ing the car and acting as a co-pnrtner
in the game.
Bogota and Hymrn reported that
the stolen goods were delivered to!
Ben Biggs and Tom Mills and that
they received four dollrrs a bag for
Upon this evidence Mills was arrest
ed aad he too came across with furth
er evidence to convict an involved.
Mflls was plseed in Jail with Hymen j
and Bogers.
Then the posse went after Ben
Biggs who, at the time, was net at
hooae. bet they panned him until
they found him several miles down the
Washington road, apparently peddl
ing whisky; for he had a jug in his
car which contained half a ration aad
which Biggs declared to be the prop
erty of one Woolard, a drunken negro
who was riding with him. The lr»t
statement was disputed by Wool.-ird
This combination of thieve. hat
been stealing for a long time, running
sugar out to Ben Biggs' and several
other men who manuftetare the sugar
into liquor. The gang has had the
fair awing, stealing, making and sell
ing liquor and running rough shod
over the country.
The trial of the four men is before
the court this afternoon and while it
is not yet settled, it is though they i
wfll be bound over to the next t .-ns
