Negro House Burns
Last Monday, in the early
pnrt of Uie night, the old Av^ery
residence in Southeast; Asper-
■mont, which was purchased a
few days ago by li. A. Jachson,
(Col.), was dnstroyed by fire
It is rumored that the house was
set fire by some one, but as far
as wh are able to Isarn the offi-
cers have no clue as t" who did
We are not a nesrro sympa-
thizer and do not care much
for the negro, but we do think
that if the house «an set fire,
the person i?ui!ty of same should
autfer the penalty that the law
prescribes. If we want the ne-
gro from among us we can get
them out ..i' town in a much
more civilized manner than by
burning them out.
We understand that a private
citizen offers a 1100,00 reward
for the capture and coiiMction
of the person who set the fire.
The City also offers a $100 00.
