Dr. W. L. Heaner, was the first

7:30 and 8 o'clock on the 25th of
April. He was passing along the
street wb*n called for. He went
immediately to the building, anJ
found Sal ?in lying on the floor with
a bullet i 'ound in his left side. Sa
bin was" perfectly rational, and In
?very littlj pain. Didn't know how
long that was after his being shot.
About tb's time Dr. Shecu: arrived
and toge her they took Sabin home
and exan ined the wound, which.was
between the sixth and seventh rib.
Upon noticing that Sabin was vomit
ing blooW, the two doctors decided
to carry him immediately to Colum

from his residence and went from
there to Dixie Lumber Co's shed in
automotile. He substantiated Dr.
Heaner'5 testimony in regard to
wound. Said Sabin did not relate
how th< snooting occurred as far
as he leard. The prosecution here
reserved the right to recall Dr. Shec
ut later if desired after some pre
liminary facts were established.
Solid or Hildebrand here ased
that th< witness for the two sides

by the j tdge, who warned both sides
that all witnesses not excluded
would not not be allowed to testify.
J. B. Kelly was next called. He

scene. Found Sabin flat on back.
Chestnut nowhere to be seen. Here
witness attempted to tell what Sa

the prosecution had not yet showu
that these remarks would properly
come u tder the head of res gestae??
in other words that these remarks
were n aue sufficiently near the
shootin ; to be considered i part of
the transaction. WitDess stated that

already there. Did not hear Sabin
say anything in regards to shooting.

The next witness was Leon West
bury, who was engaged in Jenning
and Smoak's warehouse when the
shooting took place. He heard the
shots but thought it was boys shoot
ing at sparrows. Heard Cunningham
say "Come here" anl ran to the Dix
ie Lumber Co. As he ran in one
door, Chestnut ran out the other.
Witness left Sabin to phone for the
doctor. Alter waiting about fif
teen minutes went to phone for the
doctor again and met Dr. Shecut
coming. Did not hear Sabin say who
shot him until after his brother ("Mr.

Court here adjourned for dinner
after cautioning the jurors not to
discuss the case with anyone.
After dinner the first witness was
Edward Hawes, city engineer, who
testified that he made a plat of the!
scene Tuesday night and this plat
was received as evidence, although
objected to by the defence.
C. E. Cunningham, grand-uncle of
Sabin was the next witess. He'was
on platform loading a car, and Sabin
was at his desk engaged in writing
a letter. Heard pistol shot but did
not think it was in office. But start
ed to look in, and saw Chestnut
standing at Sabin's desk with pistol
in his hand; Sabin then rose very
deliberately, and Cunningham says
Chestnut said, to Sabin: "I'll teach
you how to observe signs when
you approach a gentleman's houo.
after 7 o'clock at night." Witness
said he tried to remonstrate with
Chestnut who replied that if Cun
ningham did not get out of the way
he would shoot him. The witness
said that Sabin did not strike Chest
nut, but pushed him and they both
fell back over some lumber Sabin
on top of Chestnut. Then Cunning
ham hurried to his nephew's side,
and Chestnut ran away "with all the
power that was in him." It was al
so brought out that Chestnut owed
the Dixie Lumber Co. about $50 or
$60, which has since been paid. Mr.
Cunningham said he was not excit
ed, although the second shot near
ly bit him. Chestnut he declared
was greatly excited and wrought up.
Sabin was unarmed.
The next witness was A. S. Sabin,:
brother of the slain man, and who
has been running his business since
his death. Mr. Sabin related how he
was phoned by his uncle of his broth
er's injury and that he ran there
immediately. Found brother on floor,
evidently in pain. Described posi
tion of things in the office. Went
with his brother to Columbia and
was present with him when he was
opeiated upon. Spent a very com
fortable night. Next day Sabin said
that he told his brother that he was
getting weaker, and the deceased
said, "I know it, I can't stand it
much longer." The witness then
said they should have had his
statement made in proper forfo, and
his brother replied: "It's'just like I
told you." Upon being requested by
his brother said: "I was sitting at
my desk writing when Chestnut
came in. 'Good morning, what's the
news,' asked him. 'A whole lot of
news, g? d? you,- I'm going to kill
you.' and shot once. I tried to ask
for an explanation, but he said, *I
am going to kill you; you wrecked
my home.' I didn't'-understand and
asked for an .explanation. Then ljte
fired the second shot Seeing ie
. meant to kill me' I^an'him*against
the wall and tried to take the pistol
from him." His brother, the wit
ness had read to him in the morning
the statement in the papers charg
ing' illicit relations with Chestnut's
wife, and remarked to him just be

was written." The dying man re
plied, "there's no truth in that sto
With this witness the prosecution
rested its case and the defence open

Horry, said he knew Chestnut for
over 20 years and his reputation as
a peaceful citizen was good. Since
the defendant moved from Horry he
knew nothing of him or his private
J. A. McDerraott, of Conway, for

practically the same testimony as
Mr. Sessins. He also had heard of
a Chestnut cutting a negro at George
town as had Mr. Sessions.
W. R. Lewis and W. H. Howell,
two Horry citizens, had known the
defendant about 20 years each, and
testified that his character was good.
Ex-congressman Samuel Dibble,
State Senator D. A. Spivey, of Horry,
knew Chestnut's reputation, which
they knew was good.
Rev. Geo. W. Davis and Mr. R. E.

Work Has Been Begun.
The executie committee of the Or
angeburc fair jssociation have
had the plans drawn for their fair
buildings, and the work for the ac
tual construction began Tuesday. The
>' ork of erecting ihe building will
in- be igiven to a contractor, but the
members of the executive committee
and a supervising architect will have
the work in charge. The work will
be pushed on the buildings which
will be substantial, '.o have them
read for the Fair in November.
The executive committee of the
Orangeburg County Fair Association
asks all stockholders who have not
paid the assessments on stock called
for by the directors to kindly do so
in the next few days, as the associa

$2,5?0, and they will need the mon

GRAND JURY'S FINDINGS.
They Find Many True Bills and Re
port on Other Matters.
j Yesterday afternoon the grand
jury made its presentment to the
Court. Tliey acted on all bills hand
ed them by the Solicitor and attend
ed to other matters.
The grand jury appointed three
committees to take up special work
between now and the next term of
court. The first committee to in
spect and report on the condition of
the public highways and chain gangs;
! the second to visit the public schools
or the county and report condition
of the same; the third to inspect the
Court House and offices in the same,
go over the books, vouchers, etc.,
and make a report on the same.
? They also thought it would be a
good thing to construct a cement
walk on the court house grounds,
connecting the various entrances, and
thus do away with the unseemly
paths as at present. They recom
mended that the causeway over the
Edisto river on the Ninety Six road
be put in good condition.
The grand jury returned true bills
in the following cases:
A. M. Sto?es and Hamp Stokes,
violating the liquor law.
W. E. Johnson, violating the li
quor law. !
W. S. Lee, Jr., violating the liquor
Henry Keller, violating the liquor
Dorcas Grant and Peter Grant, as
sault and battery with intent to kill.
John Fogle and Fred McCord, mur
der and carrying concealed weapons.

A VALUABLE SUGGESTION.
Judge DeVore Says * ugrants Should
Be Put on the Roads.
In his charge to the grand jury on
Tuesday Judge DeVore laid stress on
their performance of the duties as
signed to their office. Owing to a
decree of Judge Prince, the last pre
siding judge, the grand jury for Or
angeburg county was dismissed be
cause of its being unlawfully drawn.
Major Havelock Eaves, a local cot
ton buyer, was chosen as foreman of
the -grand jury.
Judge DeVore called especial at
tention to the vagrant law and stated
that this law Is generally overlooked.
He said that because of the non-en
forcement of the law a great amount
of .crime is breeded. Judge DeVore
read the law and said that his only
objection is that the punishment Is
too light, but if strict enforcement
was held the roads of every county
could be placed in such condition
that they would be the best automo
This is a valuable suggestion, and
should be carried out. There are
many vagrants to be found in every
town of the State, and if they were
all put to work on the roads and the
highways, bad roads would be soon
a thing of the past. These vagrants
are a menance to every community
&nd some scheme should be devised
to make them move on or go to work.

Plush Livened Up Things.
Bill Plush attended a dinner on
Monday given by some colored people
near Lone Star. Everything partook
of the festive air and was going along
hilariously until another negro ap
peared upon the grounds with sever

early victim and was soon in the
proper spirit for giving the festival
the correct coloring. He had taken
with him a single barrel shotgun, and
as soon as the spirit moved him made
things lively by shooting wildly into
the crowd. He succeeded in wound
ing five before being subdued and
locked up by Sheriff Dantzler.
