Samter County Master Killed Himself
Sumter Awas shocked to hear
that the Hon. Frank Wilson
had killed himself At 8:80
o'clock he was sitting in his of
flice in the court house talking
with his father on ordinary
matters when he arose from his
chair. stepped into hi, vault on1
pulled the inner door to. In a
rinute his father heard a pistol
shot. It was a few minutes be
fore the vault door could be
opened, and he was found
stretched on the floor with a pis
tol ball through his right temple.
Death was instaneous.
It had been noticed by I i
companions in the court house
latelv that Major Wilson did
not stem himself. His father
was with him yesterday and
noticed that he was so nervous
that he determined not go to his
home in the country, but spent
the night with his son, He
says that nothing in the major's
manner or conversation this
morning gave him any intima
tion that he was contemplating
the deed he performed. It was
undoubtedly a case of tempo
rary insanity. About a year
ago Mrs. Wilson died, and Ma
jor Wilson has not been in good
health for some time, and heev
idently was depressed.
Major Wilson was one of the
senior members of the Sumter
bar and has always been promi
nent in public affairs since the
days of '73, when he was a
hard and efficient worker for
Democracv. He has held nuni
erous public offices, among
them being State senator, may
or of Sumter. captain of the
Sumter Light Infantry, and at
the time of his death he was
master in equity of this county,
which office he has held for
several years. He was a past
grandl chancellor of the Knights
of Pythias, and1 was as popular
throughout the State as he was
at home. MIajor Wilson's death
will be a source of sorrow to
hundreds of friends, beside his
surviving relative-his father,
B. F. Wilson; his brothers, Rev.
B. F. Wils'ni, A. F. Wilson and
M. B. Wilson, and his sisters.
Mrs. Moultrie Reidl, Mrs. H. .L.
Shaw and several other sisters.
He had no children. Major
Wilson was 54 years of age.
