The Passing of a Uoed and Useful Alan.
John W. Dilliughnnii Anderson's
chief of police, died at his residence in
in this city lust Saturday morning be
tween tlie hours ot seven and eight
He was a brave, good and useful
man. and his death means a great loss
to Anderson. Deep regret, together
with pur?.' unalloyed sympathy for iii?;
family, especially the wife and Mule
om-, is universal throughout (he eily
and elsewhere when; his sterling quali
ties were known.
For many months tho deceased car
ried on a hopeless light willi Un- ?head
disease, consumption. Pining thc first
stages of tin' disease and, n ally, up to
a lew months ugo, hope tantalized tho
patient stillerer anil those watching so
earnestly thc result ol' the struggle,
but tlie insatiate conquerer vin? never
knew defeat prevailed, an?, our friend
was numbered with tlie dead.
Throughout tus illness he mad?* no
complaint, though conscious he was
gradually sinking into the grave. Tho
same ?juiet, manly natur?: which char
acterized him in health ?lid not forsake
him in disease and suffering, nor in the
presence of the angel of death, and he
sank into tho gravy with thc remark,
"It is all right, (Jod will take care of
Chief Dillingham was boin in Kahlin
County, Georgia, '.'.'?>> years ago last
January. lie was a product of that
rugged mountainous section where self
reliance ami courage aro taught from
the cradle up, and he possessed holli in
a marked ?legree. His parentage wax
honorable ami his ancestry was among
those whose courage helped t?> shape
ami preserve the great republic under
whick wt; live. They possessed neither
wealth nor careful culture, but the
training a child in self-reliance, cour
age and honesty, without pretension or
pedantry, is ?d' more value for tim
flairs ol' ihn world than the education
. . schools ami e?)lleges. Thus was the
deceased trained. He was quiet, un
assuming, self-reliant, courageous.
In 1800 Mr. Dillinghani made Ander
son his home. His lirst work for the
public was performed in the ranks of
the police force, and it was in that po
sition that the high finalities which
afterwards distinguished him as a man
of eminent and faithful services were
discovered. Ho was made a police
man just after tho dispensary law went
into operation und at a time when
"blind tigers1' nourished in every town
in tho State. Anderson was n?> excep
tion; on the coutrary her "tigers" were
as formidable ns any iu the .State, with
uniquo devices calculated to bailie the
most rigid senrch. Besides, there were
other evils growiug up in our midst,
the baleful influences of which were
more far-reaching than tho illicit sal?'
of liquors. Dillinghani, the private,
knew his duty and'performed it. Such
a thing ns shirking responsibility or
cloaking tho violator of law was un
known to him, and it soon became a
recognized faot among transgressors
that no compromise was possible with
Dillinghani. He wns linn and immov
able in tho discharge of duty, but
withal, kind and considerate, exhibit
ing no excitement nor anger, and won
respect u:: " friends where others would
have lost tho lirst and compassed them
selves about with n host of enemies.
Such efficiency and devotion to duty
could not escapo tho observation of the
city authorities, and eight years ago
Mr. Dillinghani was made chief of the
polico forco. His management of this
department has brought results far in
advance of tho expectations of tho
most sanguine. That which the Stato
government failed to accomplish for
th? Stato with a powerful constabulary
force, armed with Winchesters and
quartered in all parts of tho State, nud
with scenes of bloodshed which will
ever remain a blot upon tho State,
Dillingham accomplished for the City
of Anderson with no greater forco than
firmness, kindness und promptness.
The City of Anderson is entirely free
from tho illicit salo of intoxicants and
has been for several years past. Net
only this, but places of evil resort and
other vices common in a large majority
of cities of equal and even less popu
lation, do not exist here. So true is
this that, in every part of the State
where anything of our city government
is known, tho expression is common
that "Anderson is tho best policed city
in tho State." And to John W. Dil
linghani, and the bravo men who have
served under him, all tho praise is due.
To obtain a correct estimate of and
fully appreciate tho services of the de
ceaseil, you have only to recall tho
conditions existing eight years ago and
comparo thom with present conditions;
and it may be, though wo hopo to
tho contrary, that tho near future will
develop conditions which will deepen
the appreciation ot tho man just lost.
A mistake is possible in tilling the
place made vacant by hie death.
In reviewing tho services of this
dead young chief, ono cannot say his
career was an accident, or duo to what
is called, usually, fortune or favoring
circumstances. It was tho man and
the putting into forceful practico tho
honesty and courage instilled into him
in his youth hy the admonitions of a
Godly mother and a bravo father. Ho
knew only right and dared to do it.
On tho 20th of December, 1808, Mr.
Dillingham and Miss Eula King, of
this city, daughter of the late Rev. W.
H. King, were united in marriage, and
to them was born a little girl, now
abo it one year old. The iather of
Chi f. Dillingham died about fifteen
yea* o a ;o, but his mother is living and
is well, ?nd was with her eon in his last
dinna* <. i..S wilSS ?lCf.?!i Cl?i?MlOll hid.
A eiste? and four brothers also survive.
One-of the brothers, Mr. J. A. Dilling
Ihu?, oar Deputy Sheriff, is a twin
throttler. The entire city is mourning
thc loss o? this noble character, but
upon tht( family-thc wife und little
one, the motlier, the hinter and tho
brothers-the blow falls most heavily
and their grief is acutely painful.
The funeral services were begun in
the* St. .John's .Methodist Church at
<l.:jfl Sunday afferma 1 and tlie inter
ment took place in Silver Brook Ceme
tery, where the services were con
Kastor, the glorious resurrection day
which the Christian delights to com
memorate and which nature so lavishly
decorates with a thousand beauties,
lost none of its sweet iullucncc? be
cause of the sad duty all were called
upon to perform in paying fitting re
spect to the dead. On the contrary,
the uillllled tolling of thc chinch bell,
tlie silent loot lulls, the subdued
voices, the atmosphere kahui with the
perfume of Howers, the tremulous
notes ol tia'organ, thc solemn reading
ol' lessons from the book of hooks, thc
beautiful hymn. "Nearer My dod to
Thee," sung with such exquisite ex
pression, the lessons drawn from the
Christian character of the man whose
mortal remains lay enshrouded before
them, all added a solemnity which in
itself might have justly been styled
beautiful, in that the burial of this
dead friend on K?ster was but laying
him to rest amidst a thousand eviden
ces ol' (he glorious resurrection.
The services at the church were con
ducted by Kev. Mr. Kelly, assisted by
Kev. Mr. Murchison ami Dr. Chapman.
At no time in thc history ol' Anderson,
probably, has there been services on
such an occasion mort! impressive and
more fruitful in lessons of spirituality.
Tho church was crowded, every seat
being occupied, ami men were standing
shoulder to shoulder around the entire,
inner circle of the walls.
The concluding services at the ceme
tery wore conducted by Chiquolu Dodge
Knights of Pythias, tho service being
read by Kev. O. .J. Copeland, Prelate of
the kadge, and a more beautiful and
impressive service is seldoai if ever
heard. The pall-bearers were from
the ranks of thc Knights of Pythians
ami were: K. S. Mallison, Noel II.
Sharpe, Ceo. W. Kvuns, C. K. Scybt,
Kaylis Maxwell, lien I Hockley, John
Weekley and T. A. Ratline.
Chief Dillingham wns a member ot
Hiram Kedge, A. P. M., a member of
the Knights of Pythias and a member
of th?; Woodmen of the World. The
attendance of these orders at tho fun
eral, all wearing tho insignia of their
respective ortlers, was unusually large,
a fact which bears testimony to the
high esteem in which tho departed
brother was held.
It would bo in keeping with tho wish
of tho dead, were he able to speak to
us, to reconl the tender kindness and
thoughtfulness of tho noble order ot
Knights of Pythias during the last few
months of his illness. A capable nurse
was provided who remained continual
ly at the bedside, and all tender con
sideration possible shown the deceased.
This order hud charge of tho funeral
arrangements and performed tho last
sad act of kindness which can bc dorie
for the dead.
The funeral procession was ono of
tho largest seen in Anderson in years.
Following the carriages, which were
occupied by tho Mayor and Council,
prominent citizens and the polico force,
wore hundreds walking.
Fortunato is he of whom it can be
said when death claims him, "The
world is hotter that he lived," but more
fortunato still is ho of whom it can also
said, "ho died fully trusting in tho
Lord Jesus Christ." All of this has
been said of our dead chief. Friends
have testified to his moral courage nil?
virtues and ministers bave testified to
his beautiful Christian virtues und
strength of religious faith. From his
youth ho was a member of tho Metho
dist Church. We would fain hopo that
his soul has reached tiie Shining Shore.
