Calvin Cook KKK - Tho Convicted Ka Klux. Yesterday afternoon,...
Tho Convicted Ka Klux. Yesterday afternoon, says tbe Charles? ton News, a band of forty-nine of the so-called Kn Klux prisoners, who were oonvioted at the late term of the United States Circuit Court, held in Columbia, arrived in the city by tho 3.20 train from Columbia. The prisoners woro accom? panied by a military guard of thirteen privates from the Eighteenth Infantry, under the command of First Lieutenant Potter. They were mot at the train by a detachment from the Third Artillery, oommanded by Capt. Davis, who were to set as an osoort through tho streets o? Charleston. AB soon ns they could gather together their blankets, ?tc, tho prisoners were formed between liles of the soldiery and took up their march down town. They were all apparently white, but a more forlorn, woe-begone, haggard looking crew oould hardly bo got together. Many were imperfectly clothed, some hud gaping shoes, and their persons and clothing seemed to have declared eternal war with such do? mestic ap p li anees ns soap and water. As thoy entered upon the march, a few cu? rious urchins began to inspect them, nnd soon the news, caught up from tho sol? diers, spread liko wild-liro that tho real live Ku Klux were marchiug through the city under guard. A crowd of blackt soon gathered along the line of marah, and kept following the dreaded Ku Kim with curious eyes and questions. Thc bayonets of the soldiers, howover, warned the dusky throng not to bu UH pressing in their attentions, and tho cor togo passed quietly and silently olou{ without interruption. Twenty-four o the prisoners were murchwd down Meet ing and broad streets, and put on boan the steamship Charleston, just about ti sail for New York.
