Memorial exercises in honor of the
Confederate dead wen- held in the
city Wednesday morning under the di
rection of the three chapters of the
Daughters ot tin; Confederacy. Com

decorate?) with Parian (id ol Mowers.
The Dixie chapter had iron crosses
placed on all the graves ot the Confed
erate soldiers huiicd in the city, und
theii graves may now be readily dis
tinguished by tins memorial sign.
The exercises were concluded in the
Court House with an address by Hon.
M. L. Smith, of Camden. Mr. Smith
is speaker ot the House of Repr?senta
tives and is a foicefol and eloquent
orator. He reviewed many of the giorica
and hardships of the Conf?d?rale gov
ernment, and finished his speech by
paying an eloquent tiibute to Southern
Negro Commits Suicide in County Jaii.
Tillman Weatherull, a young negro
confined in the county jail on a charge
of houschrenkiug, committed suicide
about noon last Wednesday, by shoot
ing himself with a pistoi. How he
managed to procure the weapou is a
mystery to the oflicers.
The night previous Deputy Sheriff
Scott opened the cell door to give the
inmates of the jail some ice water.
Suddenly Weatherull thrust a pistol in
the officer'h fuco aud commanded him
to staud aside. Mr. Scott Blammed
the door shut und drew his pistol, and
the prisoner crept back into a corner
of the cell without further attempting
to make immediate use of the pistol.
The deputy sheriff then secured two
gentlemen to assist him in disarming
the negro, and when they attempted to
do so he tired one shot at the crowd.
Fortunately it went wide of its mark.
The officers then left the prisoner se
curely locked without succeeding in
I disarming him. He remained in posses
sion ot the weapon during the night
and the next morning, and held Sher
iff Green and his deputy at buy until
he ended his lite by his own baud.
About noon Wednesday,when he was
alone, Weatherull shot himself through
the breuK?, indicting a wound that
caused death in a short time. It is
thought that, being baffled in his
efforts to escapo and fearing death for
himself, he took his own life in a tit of
Weutheiall wan a bad negro and bad
served n term on the county chaia
f;aug. He bud been confined in jail
or about a month nud would have
been tried this week in the sessions
court for houeebreakiug. It is not
known bow he secured . the pistol. It
seems that he had planned primarily
for his own escapo, though he may
have had in mind a general jail deliv

Resolutions Adopted by the Veterans.
A few years ago the ladies of the
Confederate Monument Association
erected on the Court House Square of
Anderson a monument in memory of
the Confederate dead. At that time
the monument was surrounded by a
bare plat of P id. Today it is sur
rounded by a u autiful plaza, laid off
and planted in shrubberies and flowers
by the ladies of the Civic Association,
which is admired by all who see it. it
was a beautiful sentiment that the
eaid Association, after their organiza
tion, should first improve and beau
tify the spot upon which stood the
monument to the heroes who gave
their lives '.'or their country's cause,
and it has touched the hearts and ex
cited the gratitude of the survivors of
said dead. Therefore be it.
Resolved, by the members of Camp
Stephen D. Lee, That we appreciate
this testimony on the part of the Civic
Association and extend to its members
our sincere thanks.
Resolved, further, That ns an appre
ciation of what they have done, we
pledge them our support in their work,
and wish for them success in their
efforts in the future to beautify our
