that the thoughtful, progressive

as violate the principle of our law

either Interference or embarrassment

OLD HARE DURHAM GOT AWAY.
Makes (Second Escape at Branchville !
on Way to Atlanta Prison.
i Greenville News. )
William (alias Habe) Durham, the
old moonshiner of tho Dark Corner,
who took French leave of the United
States Court here several days ago
while the jury was (mt deliberating
on his case, and who was subse
quently brought to jail by two sturdy
sons of the old fellow's bondman, has
added another interesting chapter to
hi? eventful life history by escaping
from two Federal officers while the
three were speeding toward thc city
of Atlanta, where the sly old man of
the hills was to serve, a two years'
sentence for his misdeeds.
Raiding Deputy G. C. Corn, of
Greenville, and Office Deputy Mar
shal J, Lee Adams, of Charleston,
some days ago took Durham from
the Greenville jail and carried him
to Charleston for tile purpose of al
lowing .Judge Smith to pass sentence
on him, the jury having convicted
him at the session of court recently
adjourned. .ludge Smith sentenced
Durham to serve two years in tho
Federal penitentiary in Atlanta, and
pay a fine.
Officers Corn and Adams, it is un
derstood, were on t 1K- way to Adama
with Durham when the old fellow es
caped. The three were near Branch
ville and the train was going al full
speed when thc old moonshiner man
aged to excuso himself for a while.
Thal was the last seen of Durham.
So far as can be learned nothing has
been heard of thc escaped prisoner.
