Blurter and a Lynching.
Charleston, S. C., Doo. 27.-A
special to the Nows and Conner from
Greenwood, 8. C., says:
W. K. Jay, a prominent yonng far
mer of the Troy flection of this county,
was foully murdered ia his own yard
by a negro, Oliver Wideman, and his
wife, both of them<l?T?Dg on the plaoe.1
Both of the negroes were lynched by
Jay's infuriated neighbors. Mr. Jay,
on returning home Friday afternoon |
heard Widaman abasing or fighting
his (Widsoao's) wife. He weot to
tho cabin sod ordered the negroes to
be quiet. Immediately afterward
Mrs. Jay heard the report of a gua aod
saw the two Degrees running away.
Calling for her husbaod, she had no
answer, aod OD looking over the yard
found him dead in apml of his own
blood. Almost bis entire head had
been blown off.
The alarm was given and parties
were soon scouring tho country in per
sist of the negroes. Th?.y were cap
tured. Before the coronet's inquest
both acknowledged tho deed, but the
mao said thc woman did it, and tho
woman accused the man.
They never changed from thia, but
died accusiog caoh other of the crime.
While in tho custody of a constable on
the way to jail they were stopped at
the Winterscat bridge by a crowd of
infuriated friends and neigh bord of Jay
where both negroes wore lynched.
The lynohing took placo about mid
night, several hours after thc inquest.
W. K. Jay was a good citizen and
prominent Mason, having boon a high
official in thc Grand Lodge of South
Another Advance in Oil.
New York, Dec. 25.-Again the
price of oil has been advanced.
The Standard Company to-day raised
the figure foe refined kerosene one coot
a gallon, making the prevailing price
10$ cents, the highest the oommodity
haa reaohod io more than twenty
ThoBC who control the output of oil
have boen quick to seize the opportu
nity to squeeze the consumers. Con
sumption of oil for heating and illumi
nating purposes has increased enor
mously owiog to the scarcity of coal.
Io a corresponding ratio thc price
haa been advanced by the Staudatd
Oil Company 2 cents since the begin
ning of the anthracite coal troubles.
There ic no telling how far thc prioe
will be advanced in tho near future.
Oil has proved a substitute for coal as
fuel on steamships and locomotives,
and a new market has thus been creat
ed that has modo the Oil Trust, whioh
controls 80 per oent of all tho petro
leum produoed ia this ooaotry, more
independent aod powerful than ever
With oil at 10} cento to jobbers, it
is estimated that the resulting in
crease io the income of the Standard
Oil Company is DO less than $16,000,
000 annually oo sales io this country
Stockholders io the oil company re
ceived their quarterly dividends for
1902 oo Monday. The installment
wa? 10 per coot, amounting to $10,
000,000. Dividends for the entire
year werc$45,000,000 aod stockholders
may expect a liberal increase next
It is said that ooo reason for the
steady inorease in prioo is tho fear of
decreased production, as many wells
in Pennsylvania show indications of
While dividends to stockholders
amounted to 45 percent io 11)02, last
year aod the yearB before they were 48
The decrease during 1902 is due to
the fact that the company has bought
up new property in Texas and built
Dew vessels for the carrying trade.
