Hanna Hied Later.
Spartanburg, Sept. 2t?.-The coro
ner's jury to-day held Cliff Godfrey,
a young white man. responsible for
the death of Robert Hanna, who was
shot down in Godfrey's home Friday
morning near Enoree. To place the
responsibility for the death of Hanna
was a mere formality, but the inves
tigation brought 200 men, women
and children to the Hanna home,
where they crowded about the coro
ner's jury with breathless silence and
listened to the t gtiUiOny of wit
The witnesses told how Hanna was
shot three times, the first shot fired
having taken off his lower jaw, yet in
that condition, and with Godfrey fol
lowing him and firing two other
shots into bis body as he crossed the
held, he walked a quarter of a mile
to his home before he gave way from
loss of blood.
The witnesses to-day were God
frey's wife. Dr. Hanna, who attended
t lu- de.'.d wan, and Capt. C. A. Spen
cer, an employee of the C. and W. C.
Railroad, who came upon the scene
of the shooting in his lever car just
in time to see all that occurred out
side the house. He testified that
Mrs. Godfrey ran between her hus
band and Hanna at one time and
Godfrey said to her: "Get out of the
way, -you, or I will kill >ou!"
Mrs. Godfrey testified that she had
broken a gun belonging to her hus
band to pieces a few weeks ago to
keep him from killing himself with
it. She says she has no Idea why
her husband should have wanted to
kill Hanna, unless li was because he
was in debt to him.
Mrs. Godfrey was Miss Maggie
Wood, of ('ashville, prior to her mar
riage, and was at one time connected
with the Spartanburg Telephone Ex
change. She has two children. The
family had lived on the Hanna place
le^s than a vear.

officials of Spartanburg county and

Tho I inability lo secure sat

the town of Walhalla and her citizens
has put the local Co m missioners of
Public Work8 nm! the City Council to
work in an endeavor to secure for tho
town a service that would provo moro
satisfactory and better meet tho
needs of the community.
Some two weeks or more ago tho
Walhalla Power Company's plant was
damaged hy lightning, and a I nee that
time ibe town baa been in darkness,
or at least it would have been so ex
cept for the kindly assistance of tho
moon. The company has not as yet
been able lo replace the coll that was
burnt out, but as soon as ibo dam
age can be repaired, we understand
that the company will again turn on
their current, which will be con
tinued until th?' local plant can bo
put into operation.
The plan decided upon by tho joint
session of the Commissioners and
Council is the purchase of two 25
h. p. Deisel engines and machinery
outfit which goes with them for tho
completion of two electrical units,
thus making an Ideal "twin"' plant.

G. A. Norman, Me??rs. Vernor and

Seaborn visited Saluda, N. C., last

which they were greatly pleased, and
which is said to be giving ideal ser
vice. After their inspection and rc
l>ort, it was decided that the town of
Walhalla would purchase a similar
plant and thc contract for asme has
been signed up, tho order given, and
within 30 days the engines and mate
rial should be here. In all probabil
ity they will be ?cady "for seivica
within that time. The outside date
set for the completion of the plant in
operating condition is November If?.
The Deisel engine is said to bo ono
of ?he most economical and yet ono
of the most efficient engines ever pro
duced. I'.til banks, Morse ?i. Co., ot
Chicago, whose manufacturing plant
is at Delolt, Wis., are the makers ot
this engine, and it bas the unqualified
hacking and guarantee of that strong
company, who aro recognized as tho
very top-notdvers in gasoline and
other oil engines in this country Tho

guarantee of this company.
The local plant will be situated in
South Broad street, near tho Blue
Ridge depot, slightly back and to the
east of C. W. & J. E. Bauknight's
warehouse. This situation will give
easy access to the railroad for un
loading and will be convenient for
the receiving of the heavy fuel oil
