rented. The other ladles present
were frr m North and had no personal

The viiness which the State had
been m;.kng such strenuous effort to
have here for this term of court, was
in this ccunty about two weeks be
fore thf trial, but sudenly disappear
ed. Advices were received to the ef
fect thft he was in Rock Hill and the
Sheriff at that place was telegraphed
to keep him, but he was not secured.
Acordirg to an announcement made
hy Solicitor Hildebrand this man is
now in; North Carolina, and rather
than dih.y the trial the State pro
ceeded without him.
Tb? fiist witness called Tuesday
afternoon was Mrs. Lydie E. Harley,
who t?st<fjed that she rented her
store t? Trunk Leysath and that on
the merging of March 15th it was
burned Store was insured for $1,
Demasoy Tyler testified that he
and some other boys had gone on an
expedition to scare some man, und
returning' saw a wagon loaded with
goods vai.agj Later saw three persons
with g)ods in their arms, whom he
later recognized to be the defendants.
He an<. Dempsey Livingston watched
the store and ran to the fire when
the ej plosion was heard. Witness
testified that he signed affidavit for
Deputy Insurance Commissioner
Whartm to the effect that Frank
Leysata offered to pay him to hold
his toi gue, but didn't remember vis
iting I in now.
W. A. Baggott, magistrate at
North, next testified that he went to
the out-house back of Mr. John Ley
sath's house the morning after the
fire aid upon opening it found the
goods, waich he boxed and sent to the
Sherif'. (Here the box was opened
and cl:)t:nng marked for various peo
ple around North and sent to Frank
Leysa h was exhibited, also neckties

them, stamped enveolpes and blank
Lot Feed, policeman-at North, said
he weit immediately to the fire when
the alarm was sent in. Nothing was
saved from th Leysath store after he
got tl.eie. According to orders from
01 r. Whetstone, intendant, he went
and v atched the out-house where la
ter th e i.roods were found, until morn
ing and is satisfied that the goods
were aot placed there after the fire.
W. L. Whetstone, was next examin
ed, .le said that upon receiving in
form?.thn from L. L. Chartrand he
had ho outhouse where the goods
were discovered guarded. Ho went
to thn fire and did not remember see
ing anj goods saved from the build
Cojr; adjourned until 9:30 Wed
W L. Whetstone was the first wit
ness :a:led Wednesday. He declared
he h::d seen a policy on the stock of
Fran r. Leysath for $2,r?00. The stock
he Vj lued at between $4,000 and $5,
000. j^re took place at about one
John C. Hudson, of Aiken, testified
that he was an Insurance man travel
ing >V'3r two or three counties. He
had writen a policy of $1,250 on
Frark Leysath's stock, which had
neve * been claimed so far as he knew.
Something Going to Happen.
W E. Ulmer, now of Woodford,
but ormerly of North, said: He had
ston; lext door to Frank Leysath's
sepr, rated by brick wall. Talked with
Fra lk Leysath about insurance cou
pie of months before the fire and.
Frank told him that he i Frank Ley
sath) had hone. Judged stock to he
about $3,000. Had about $500 in
surance and about ten days before
fire too out $500 more. Loss about
$500 from the fire. Reached fire
soon after the alarm, and flames were
coming out doors and windows.
At this point Solicitor Hildebrand
asked why he had taken out this ad
ditional policy, and while the ques
tion was being answered the Judge
ordered the jury to retire while the
witness answered and then he would
decide whether to admit it in evi
dence. The jury left the room and
the witness said he heard Leysath
had taken out a lot of insurance and
thought he had better get some too.
From what he had heard was a little
suspicious. Didn't know but that
fire would break out at any time.
Took no special notice of any pr/para
tions by the defendants l'or a fire, but
judging that the expenses were more
than the profit believed something
was going to happen. The Judge
then ruled this out for the present,
but announced that the opposing
sides would be heard after the re
cess and then he would decide defi
nitely. He thought the testimony
competent but was not certain.
Upon cross examination witness
said he had a stock of ?. ,0 30 and sav
ed a large part from the fire. A part
of the time he was saving the goods
Frank Leysath held a lump for him.
Dr. T. A. Jones of North was call
ed. Did not see the fire break out,
but got there fifteen minutes after
the alarm. Saw Frank -Leysath
around a few minutes after he got
there, but did not remember seeing
Poole. Also saw Horace Leysath. Saw
two parties pass in front of Mr. Jeff
coat's house going down the street
but didn' recognize them. They car
ried nothing in their hands. Also
heard couple of wagons, but didn't
L. L. Chartrand was called. Here
the defence objected to the competen
cy of the witness saying he had been
convicted of larceny. Solicitor Hil
debrand had Ihe pardon of the Gov
ernor and this the Judge decided
made him a competent witness. The
witness wanted to explain how it
happened he was corvicted by the
Mayor but wasn't allowed at that
time. The witness testified that ne
was sleeping when some one awoke
him. Seeing the fire he said: "its
kerosined" and fired his gun as an
alarm. Met Chief of .Police and told
him to tell Mayor tha* he could give
him some information concerning the
fire. When Chartrani? arrived at the
store he said kerosine was dripping
from the shelves and counters. Noth
ing was saved from the building as
far as he knew. Called the kerosine
and empty condition of the store to
the attention of the Chief of Police.
Dempsey Livingston and Dempsey
Tyler were the person*', who woke him
Lon Reed testified that he arrested
Robert Poole about 11 o'clock on the
morning after the firf- and that Hor
ace Leysath said he would kill any
one that talked against him.
William Livingston, Chief of Po
lice, said he didn't know of fire until
he was awakened. No one was
around the store when he got there.
Entire store was on fire and noth
ing was saved, although Ulmer sav
ed some from his store next door.
Smelt plenty of kerosine. Kerosine
inside of the building as it was not
smelled until after the glass broke.
On one tier of shelvos he saw there
were no goods. Horace LeyBath said
"If any man puts it on me, I'll shoot
J. D. (Dempsey) Livinigston was
called. He met wason about E. M.
Livingston, didn't recognize wagon.
Looked as if loaded with boxes and
barrels. Good load on it. About
10:30 went to Chartrand's, and from
there came to the depot- Saw three
men r me out of Frank Leysath's
store with goods under their arms.
Couldn't swear who they were. Demp
sey Tyler was wdth him. The three
came out and went away, he stayed
there and waited. He heard loud ex-j
plosion and saw two men come out;
of the store about the same time. So
lictor Hildebrand 'ried to get the
witnes to say that he recognized them
but witnes stuck to his statement that
he could not recoguize them.
Took the wagon :-.e saw to be the
same one he saw in Frank Leysath's
yard that afternoon. Said Frank
Leysath told him to tell Aleck Poole
to get rid of the shoes he had saved.
Here Livingston read a( page of an j
affidavit he made before Commission
er Wharton in which he stated who
the men were, and he said that the
affidavit was incorrect. While witness
and Tyler were wa.cbing store hear^
a noise like loadin;" a wagon behind
Thomas L. Robinson was called.
His mother being sick he went into
North for some rnedinoine and to
meet a train. He got the medicine
and had gone to some house when hf
heard the train blow. He ran out.
and upon reaching the depot found it
was a freist, and not his train. While
looking up the tra'k for the pasenjr?
he heard an awful explosion. Saw
black smoke over building. Recog
nized Frank Leys..th coming out of
the door and a little behind him Hor
ace Leysath. Horace shut the door,
and witness said he thought Frank
saw him standing on the track, and
consequently witness drove away for
about a block in Ms buggy. Put his
horse up at a Mr. Boles, and went to
the fire. At the fire Frank and Hor
ace Leysath were sitting on the rail
road. He said the building was blaz
ing and that smoke was over the
building when Fn-.nk came out.
On cross examination witness said
curtains to the si. >re were down and
he didn't see any light until Frank
Leysath opened the door. He denied
a conversation with Otto Livingston
in which he said that the Leysath
boys jumped out of the window". Ad*
mitted forging his uncle's name to a
note; also of signing his mother-in
law's name with her consent. Also
admitted being up before Magistrate
Brunson charged with taking off
property under lien. i

WINS BY ONE VOTE.
Alderman Sain Elected Mayor Over
The municipal campaign came to
a close Tuesday by the election of
Alderman Wiliam Sain Mayor by a
plurality of one vote over Alderman
W. W. Wannamaker, the vote for tue
two gentlemen named being 219 and
218, respectively. Mr. 0. K. Wilson
the third candidate received 22 votes.
Mr. Sain received 21 votes less than
a majority of the voters cast. It *Is
claimed by some that had Mr. Wilson
not been in the race tln.t Mr. Wanna
maker would have been elected, as
most of those who voted for Mr. Wil
son would have voted for Mri Wanna
maker had Mr. Wilson been out of
The following the vote received for

The'first six aldermen named were
elected. Only two of them, Messrs.
a. F. Bryant and R. H. Jennings are
members of the present board of ald
ermen. Mesrs. Abial Lathrop and J.
X. Weeks are also members of the
present board of Aldermen. They
were defeated for re-election. Messrs.
T. A. Fairey, W. G. Smith, and J. A.
Salley have served as Aldermen be
fore. Mr. W. W. Crum Is the only
man who has never served as Alder-,
man before on the new board
The isues in the campaign were
measures and not men. Mr. Wanna
maker advocated the establishment of
a recorder's court for the city, which
lost him a good many votes. Mr. Sain 1
took the other side and the fact that
he was elected shows that the people
agreed with him. When the Issue
was drawn, many of those who would
have voted for Mr. Wilson went over
to either Sain or Wannamaker and in
,this way his vote was ronsiderably
cut down. The vote Mr. Wilson re
ceived is no test of his popularity.
Alderman Sain has served the city
in that capacity for a great many
years, and has always been true and|
faithful to his trust. In his hands
as Mayor we hope the city will con-|
tinue to grow and prosper. He has
a good board of Aldermen who will j
do all they can to help make his
administration a success. Some thdnk
that there will be many changes in!
the personel of the city officials, while
others think that things will go alo:ag!
in pretty much the same old rut. We
will all have to wait and see.
,Mere the State rested.
The defence began their testi
mony with several witnesses discred
iting the truth and veracity of Thos.
Livingston. J. H. Zeigler, G. B. Gard
ner, J. X. Weeks, stated that they
would not believe Thomas Robinson
on oath. Henry Gleaton and Joseph
J Douglass said "they would not be
lieve Lon Reed on oath.
Otto Livingston said that Robin
son did tell him that the Leysath
boys jumped out of the window.
J. C. Price, A. A. Glover, and Miles
O'Reilly all made some tests as to
whether a person standing on the
railroad could recognize a person in
front of Frank Leysath's store and
came to the conclusion that It could
not be done, to which they testified.
Solloltor Hildebrand called attention
to the fact that no building was be
ing burnt up at the time of the test.
Lewis G. Gibson testified that he
saw the store the afternoon after the
fire and that the debris was compos
ed of buckets, tin cans, typewriters^
etc. Frank Leysath appeared to be do
ing a good business,
i Ernest Tindal, clerk for Frank
Leysath, testified that he and Frank
closed up the evening before the fire
about .S:30. He left Frank and went
to barber shop. Poole had been sick
for several days hut had been in the
store once or twice the day preceed
in.g the fire. Had tank of oil from
which they sold near the back of the
store. Had fire in stove during the
day. Stock between $4,001) and $5,
000, which had not been tampered
with. Aleck Poole kept a country
store and bought from Frank Ley
sath. Witness said nothing had been
done to arouse any suspicions.
J. A. Livingston testified that Ley
sath appeared to be doing a good
business Was present day after the
fire when the safe was opened and
blank books, checks amounting to
about $100 on various people, and
about $20 in silver '.vas taken out.
Turned them over to Frank Leysath.
Carl G. Shoenburg, cashier, said he
and Robert Poole boarded at same
house and was awakened by boys at
boarding house. Knew Poole was
aroused by the same boy. On cross
examination said he didn't know
when Poole got in that night.
rThis is all the testimony given
up to the dinner recess yesterday.
The rest of the testimony will be pub
lished in Saturday's issue.
Ciilhoun Oops Ruined.
The St. Matthews correspondent of
The News and Courier says: "After
one of the most protracted droughts
ever known by the oldest citizens,
this county last week was flooded
with constant and excessive rains.
The corn crop was lost for the want
of rain?particularly that planted on
the Williamson plan. In spite of the
drought, the cotton held up remark
ably well in the making, but has now
been seriously injured by the rains
and storms. Rust is invading much
of the sandy land crop and the cot
ton is rotting in many places. This
has greatly injured the price of the
staple. A bale sold on this market
for seven cents and the most of It is(
one cent below the standard price.":

Wliile Dynamiting Fish One of Party
Springfield, Sept. 11.?Special: As
a result of a premature explosion of
a charge of dynamite or dynamite
caps, Dock Gunter lies badly wound
ed and bleeding in the office of Dr.
H. A. Odom. It appears that earlv
this morning Willie Johnso-., Earn
est Porter, Norris Tyler and Dock
Gunter came down from the neighbor
hood of Sally in their automobile,
for a days sport with guns and dy
namite, it is stated by Messrs. John
son and Porter that they were to
hunt squirrels and it appears from
the results that 'Messrs Gunter and
Tyler wore to shoot dynamite for
lisli in the South Edisto River. As
a result of the accident, three of the
fingers of the right hand of Mr. Gun
ter ha>*e been blown off, and he is
severely wounded in the side. Mr.
Tyler received a wound on his ear or
face. These people are a!l promi
nent and prosperous white citizens,
and are no worse than dozens of oth
ers who persist in trying to destroy
the fish of our rivers unlawfully. The
game and fish laws have never been
enforced in this section, and the pas
sage of same 'have been resented by
many people who claim the right to
use dynamite for that purpose. The
extent of the wounds of Mr. Gunter
are as yet unknown, except that he
has been very painfully wounded,
and will be deprived of the use of
three of his fingers for the remained
er of life. Dock Guntsr is known
as a jolly, rcood natured man, and it
is to he regretted that he att.empcd
to use explosives for fishing.
