[December 4, 1883] -

At Livingston, a difficulty occurred between Lewis Raines and Ed. Anderson, in which Raines inflicted several very dangerous and probably fatal wounds about the head of Anderson with a large butcher knife. The difficulty occurred in Raines' house. Raines accused Anderson of being on too intimate terms with his wife. Anderson will probably die. Raines is now under arrest. There is great excitement among the colored people, who talk of lynching Raines. [1]
