Mr. Edward P. Mobley, Jr., Has Probably
Killed Mose Johnson.
Mr. Edward P. Mobley, Jr., came to
town on Monday to Sheriff Ellison
and told bitn that he thought that he
had killed a negro, Mose Johnson, or.
his place. Mr. Mobley is building a
new house, a*id Mose wasemplojed
by him as a carpenter. Mo^e was disputing
about some work, and became
very insulting to Mr. Mobiey, and
fiually tried to use his knife on Mr.
Mobley, and then the latter shot him.
At the time Mr. Mobley came to town
he did not know whether the negro
was dead or uot. He was shot in the
head with turkey shot, Mr. Mobley
having been out tnrkey hunting. Mr.
Mobley sent for a physician. He says
that be deeply regrets the necessity of
having to shoot the negro, but be
feels that he was acting in self-defence.
He placed himself in the
custody of the sheriff. W. D. Donglass,

A BOLD ROBBERY.

John Russell's store wa? broken
into Sunday night and robbed of
about one hundred dollars in cash.
The burglar smashed the large gUs3

through the opening thus made unlocked
the door. The desk from
which the money was taken was securely
locked, and the thief not wishing
to rur. the risk of - being caught

Russell suspects a negro tramp, who
has been in his employ for several
days, of having committed the robbery.
This suspicion is undoubtedly well
founded, because the thefc was committed
by some one well acquainted
with the premises, and who knew that
the front door was almost always
locked from the inside and the key
I left in the lock. Every effort is being:
made to catch the thief aod it will be
pretty hard for him to escape his pursuers.
Later.- The negro was arrested in
j Columbia late Monday afternoon and
nearly all the money recovered.

The senatorial primary was about as

the full vote of the county was polled.
On account of the lack of enthusiasm,
the returns were very slow iri coming

DEATH OF DK. JOHX WALLACE.
A Striking Character Gone?He Lived to be
On Monday night Dr. John Wallace
died at his In me near Wallaceville, in
(his county. Dr. Wallece figured very
prominently in politics before the war,
and was devoted and loyal to his State.

In the deith of Dr. John Wallace
our counly loses one of her most striking
characters. He was not an ordinary
man in any sense of the word.
Personally he was strikingly handsome.
He was of medium size, or just
above it, but he stood so erect that he
looked at least several inches taller
than he ;va-. His features were classic,
and h; had an eye whose lustre
was never cnmmea.
Some one said of Gov. Terry that
when be walked thrckigh a crowd it
seemed like the crowd belonged to
bim. Dr. Wallaca was also of this
t*. pe of a man. His carriage was
superb, bis manners courtly. He
would have excited the envy of either
of Napoleon's marshals. He was
always at himself, the picture of selfpossession
that he was. He lived to
be moie than eignty, but he never
grew old. He was bright to the last,
capable of entertaining the liveliest
company and of ei>j >ying it. He was
a type that appears only occasionally
I in the lapse of time to break the
monotony of the commonplace in the
character of men. To the writer he
seemed a ttraggler from the age of
True he lived and died comparatively
unknown, bat under different

circumstances ne inigm u*v?? auuicvcu
fame. He enjoyed i he advantages of
a liberal education and po3>essed
talents of a high order. He said himself
that he missed his calling, that his
father ought to have made him a
liwror instead of a doctor. The
writer has frequently heard him on
the "hustings" where he had few
equals and no superiors. lie was
possessed of ready wit, and a surprising
capacity for turning the arguments
of an opponent against him.
No opponent who knew him would
interrupt during the courf-e of his
speech, if he did he learned when too
late thit he had made the mistake of
poking his hea 1 into a frail thresher.
I The writer could give mmy amus
ing incidents from his speeches in the
campaign of*1876 in which he took an
active part. When an opponent would
plamp h m with an unanswerable
question, he would promptly answer
with an overwhelming witticism.
From the inoinuut thut l.e took the
stump the crowd belonged to him.
His voice was superb, it c^uld run the
wnoie gauiui, \V i t U U oiugic nurn auu
convulse a multitude with langhter or
j with tears.
Away back into th? seventies, Gov.
Scott and the big radical guns from
Columbia would frequently zo up into
the Jeobinsville country, which "was a

Republican strongnoia, ana aeuver
addressee, Dr. Wallace was always
on hand to reply to them. It did not
matter whether he was invited or not,
he was there to hold up the then
dishonored banner of Democracy
and he always did it well.
Itstemed bold in ihose days to criticise
a Governor, but he did it sometimes
in a manner to astonish the
natives, and probably the Governor
ton. On one of these occasions he
scored tbe carpetbaggers unmercifully,
saying that even if Scott was an ex
ception to the rule, which he doubted,
the company which he kept was sufficient
to damn him, etc. When the
doctor left the stand he picked up
Sco t's hat by mistake and pnt it on.
IutUmly discovering his mistake he
took it off, waived it to the crowd and
as proof of his argument said: "See
there; I have sssccisted with the Governor
for half an hour and S3 a result
I stole his hat." He had been scoring
the radicals for stealing.
But it is impossible to do justice t >

THE PRELIMINARY IX THE 3IORMOX
Tim frifll Af fVin lionrl <.f whifo moil.
the majority of whom are residents of
Fairfield County, has at last taken
place and there has been no alarming
circumstances developed. This affair
has been the all-absorbing topic of
discussion since the band made themselves
felt in such a material way in
and around Centreville. Much has
been written regarding the affair, and
everyone lias oeen more or less gicauy
interested in tbe development of the
case. Early Monday morning, the
day set for tbe trial, tbe town began
to fill with a throng ol eager, restless
humanity and long before the hour
appointed main street was naught but
a sea of faces. Some bad anticipated
trouble of a grievous nature, but the
crowd conducted themselves in an especially
quiet manner throughout the
entire day, most of tbem returning
home <-hori!v after the trial wa^ at an
A number of witnesses for the
prosecution were called, cach and
every one after being sworn, testifying'
to about the same thing, namely,
that at about 5 p. rn.j August 17th,
1897, a band of marked and armed
men visited the premises of one David
Branham and after some parleying
were given permission to enter and
search his house. That the search was
made but no Mormon elders were
found, and the crowd rode off in an
easterly direction. Materially, we
said, the evidence of all amounted
to about the same thing'. In une instance
witness testified to the fact that
he was struck on the head with a gun;
another swore that he was ''cussed,"
and that his dog was beaten, and yet
still another testified that a member
of the band assured him that no one
would be injured but that the house
must be searched. The crowd in riding
to and from the house destroyed

near. la all the evidence, however,
there is nothing which bespeaks anymarked
degree of violence or riotousness,
yet it was listened to with intense
interest from beginning to end.
Assistant Attorney General Townsend
and Solicitor Henry conducted the
prosecution. Messrs. Ed. Ragsdale,
of WiuHsboro, and Smith, of Camden,
were present for the defence. There
was very little surprise when the
magistrate bound the prisoners over
to the court of General 'Sessions after
placing them under a $200 bond.
Ana now as 10 uie cause ui tucso
raids. Many and conflicting are the
tales which come from (he Centreville
neighborhood as to the outrageous
conduct of the Mormon women, tales
which if they be true, go far towards
excusing in part the actions of these
men. Reputable citizens of this section
state that virtue among these
women has long since become an unknown
quantity and to have their
children reared among a set of illigitimate,
and polluted offsprings, taught
in tne same scnoois auu assuuaicu
with them ia numerous other ways is
a thing which these men have set
their foot down on occe and for all.
On the other hand the Mormons claim
that they harm no one and see no
reason why they should be molested.
The majority sympathize with ihe
white camps; not in the principle
which governs law and order, but in
the extermination of what will become
a most serious affliction to the com
The'Mormons can bring for.h some
pleos in behalf of their conduct which
sound very plausible but are misleading.
"We have been told since writing
something in regard to the visit paid
Mrs. Sharpe that the history of her
character does not savor of the most
delightful facts. Two officers in the
church of which she claimed to be a
member informed the writer that she
had been turned out long .since for
obvious reasons. Mrs. Sharpe, it
will be remembered, stated that she
was a member "in good and regular
standing," while such is not the case
at all. Matters are very complicated
but it is quite reasonable to suppose
that there will at some future day be
a winding up of the affair. "And
finally justice triumphs."
The question now in the minds of
the p -ople is, wili the grand jury
throw out th.s case? The popular
idea is that it will. There are five or
six more on docket. Messs. Aagust
Kohn, of the News and Courier, and
F. C. Withers, of The State, were i
