The Post contains a statement from Chnrles Davenport, ono of the negroes on the island, which puts an entirely different face on the trouble. He says that tho man James Mohone, who was shot, came to tho island as a car boss, and from timo to timo he considerably ill-treated the mon. After Superintendent Tir.ton dieJ on Sopt. 6, Mahono punished four or five men daily. This demoralized the men, and be had neither method nor dUclplioe. Ho punishod them by placing thorn in stocks, haudculBng them, »ud hanging them up by tho hands. Do» aiithcme'a Hmtullty. Davenport goes on to tell about the cruelty practiced by Mahone against a man who had been in the hospital for twenty days. When tho sick man wag disclim-j^l from the hospital Mahono put him (it^for which his condition was not lit.
