S. Tarvor, one of the most prominent
citizens of Albany, went to the homo of
a negro named Mose Ingrain shortly be
fore daylight this morning, called him
out ami shot him with a double-barrel
shotgun, killing him almost instantly.
The cause of Mr. Tarver's act was an
attempted criminal assault by the negro
upon Mr. Tarver's thirteen-year-old
Mose was a negro about .Jfi years old,
and had boon a servant in tho Tarvor
family for a number of years. Ho was
trusted almost implicitly by his employ

been (-.-.peeled from him.
Several days ago he attempted tho as
sault oil Tarver's daughter, and threat
ened to poison her if sho told. Fils
threats made the child koop tho matter
secret until yesterday morning, when
she told her mother.
Mr. Tarvor was out at his plantation
in the western partof Dougherty county,
and did not return to bis home until lat?
last night. Ile was informed of flu
negro's conduct, and he went to Moso'i
house and killed him, as above slated.
