Negress Beateu Nearly to Dfwtk by Masked Women. Approbation of a Lynching Results in ft. MMuifht 07 AMMOM OB Teaching TlMlr Race the Daaf of Holding OplnloM FNta ThOM of Stoton. CHARLESTON, S. C., Feb. strange story comes from Allendale, a small hamlet in BarawwH County, near the scene of the recent lynchings. Hattie Frazier, a negro woman, and her infant, a month old, were the victims of a queer Black Cap outrage. When the news of the butchery at Barnwell Court House reached the Allendale section, Hattie Frazier was one of the few negroes who did not join in the chorus of condemna- tion of that act. On the contrary she openly expressed the opinion that the murdered men had only got what they deserved. Since that time the woman has been in bad odor with her race. She received threats from time to time, but treated them with scorn. But one night last week, while asleep in her house with her infant, she was aroused by a noise indicating that some one was trying to get in at tho door. Not suspecting anything, she went out with her child in her arms to see what was the matter. Arriving at the door she was seized and dragged away from the house and subjected to a most bru- tal beating. The lynchers were in mas- culine attire and wore black masks and caps. After beating the woman nearly to death they left her, with a warning that they would return the next night and finish her if she was found in the neighborhood. After the departure the Black Caps the woman dragged herself back to her house, where she found her child lyiny on the ground. The next day she iden- tified two of her assailants. They were negro women living in the vicinity and were at once arrested and lodged in jail, The women turned State's evidence and confessed that tho flogging was done by a band of from twenty to forty negro women, who were dressed in male attire with black masks and caps, and who un- dertook to punish their victims for the mother's expression of opinion about the Barnwell negroes'fate. Upon their tes- timony fifteen negro women residing in the vicinity were arrested. The affair has created much excitement in Barn- well County. Great efforts were made to keep the matter quiet, but the story leaked out yesterday. KILLED BY THIEVES. An Attlst Dies In a Few Hours After Hav- ing Been Slugged by NEW YORK, Feb. Trenor, employed in Sehaus' gallery as an ex- pert on art matters, died yesterday at his boarding house of a skull fracture which he alleged he received Sunday night in a fight with thieves in Eighty- sixth street. He returned Monday morning drunk and covered with blood. His landlady sent for a doctor who found a cut four inches long extending across the scalp on top of Trenor's head down over tie right eye. The doctor says the vrtmnd was not caused by a fall, but by a tremendous blow. He sewed up the wound. Trenor told the physician that thieves tried to rob him and on his re- sisting they struck him. At daybreak Trenor. with a sudden gasp, started up, blood gushed from bis mouth, ears and nose and he fell back dead. NO QUORUM.
