SHOT HIM DOWN
HENRY CORLEY SHOOTS HENRY
COOPER AT SALLEY.
Wounded Alan Makes Dying State
in ant as Physicians Have Little
Hope of His Recovery.
An unfortunate difficulty took
place in the usually quiet litte town
in Salley on Friday evening, in
' which Ho well W. Cooper, a pormi
nent young merchant of that town,
was shot and probably fatally
'wounded by Henry H. Coriey,' an
other prominent young marchant of
the same place. The shooting, which
grew out of an argument which had
taken place between the two mer
chants earlier in the evening, occur-j
ed n the street near the Southern
railway's water tank.
In what is supposed to be his dy
ing testimony. ? given before Sir..
James H. Fanning, attorney and
notary public of Springfield, Mr.
Fanning having been sent for Sat
urday morning, Mr. Cooper,, who
seems to realize that he cannot live,
stated that Friday evening he en
tered the store of Mr. Coriey, and
they engaged in an argument, in the
presence of Mr. D. Hammond. Sal
ley; that it becoming dark, he left
and, securing a lantern at the drug
store of D. Gardenr, returned
to the store of Mr. Coriey, where,
after showing Mr. Coriey that h?
pistol wouldn't shoot, he threw
the same on the floor, which was
later picked up and handed to him;
that he left with Henry H. Coriey,
who closed the store; D. Hammond
Salley and Dr. Robert Gardner; that
the three parties named were walk
en ahead of him as he came along
with the borrowed lantern.
Continuing, the wounded man said
thai: somewhere near the water
trough Mr. Coriey called to him and
told him not to follow him, and that
he replied that he was not follow
ing him, but was simply returning
the borrowed lantern, when Mr. Cor
iey turned and immediately shot
him. twice, one ball entering about
whore the neck and chest meet and
the second going into his abodmon,
entering from near the point of the
right hip. After the shooting' Mr.
?Cooper was assisted to $ke, drug
store by Mr. Hamraond Salley, and
later taken to his home, where he
was attended by Dr. Robert Gard
ner and Dr. H. J. Salley, who call
ed in Dr. Paul A. Phillips this morn
ing. After holding a consultation,
the wounded man was hurried to
the Columbia Hospital, where an
operation will be performed.
Mr. Howell Cooper was raised
from his infanhy by his undle and
aunt, the Rev. and Mrs. Howell W.
Cooper, the former of whfch died sev
eral years ago. The grief of his aged
aunt, bent with the weight ' fame,
fully four-srore , years old, as she
hent her white head over the strong
form of him who was dearer to any
other motherhood; was almost 'be
yond the power of idescription. Mr.
Ifenry H. Coriey is a son of Mr. John
Coriey, a highly respected gentle
man, and Is connected wi?h the well
known Salley family. Both parties
have many connections in this town
and section, who regret the deplora
ble affair. Neither of the young
men are married.
Coriey states that Friday night
Cooper came into his, Corley's store
in a drunken condition. He says that
Cooper began to curse him in a vile
manner and drew his pistol lroin his
manner and threw it on the floor
Coriey picked up the gun, where
upon, he .claims, Cooper heaped a
buse on him for taking advantage of
him. Coriey states be then gave the
pistol back to Cooper, and that a
party of men carried Cooper away
from Corley's store. Coriey says he
then lcked up and went away with
several friends, and that later his
attention was called to Cooper, who,
he says, was behind Ihim. Coriey
claims Cooper was snapping his pis
was going to follow him and kill
to/ at him and that Cooper said he
him. Coriey states it was then that
he pulled his pistol from his pocket

WADE TYLER DIES IN JAIL.
Was Shot at Springfield on Last
Wade Tyler, a negro, died in the
country jail Friday night from a
gun shot wound received at Spring
field Thursday evening while he was
being placed in an automobile by
Sheriff Salley, Tyler having confess
ed that he assisted in the escape of
another negro, Arthur Bowen, who
was wanted for an assault upon a
white farmer's wife in th6 Spring
field section some days ago. Sheriff
Salley says that, in the darkness, he
was unable to identify in the crowd
the man who did the shooting. It
was all Sheriff Salley could do to re
strain 1)he mob from lynching Tyler
then ard there. As it was the sheriff
had to impress a physician's auto
mobile to convey the wounded pris
oner to the county jail in Orange
burg, the sheriff's own car having
been disabled ty the cutting of the
ties by members of the mob. Spring
field (Citizens are still searching the
swamps 'nearby for Bowen. As was
stated :in the last issue of The Times
and Democrat Tyler was bad off on
Friday and that he was not expect
ed to live. He died Friday night.
The news of Tyler's death did not
create moch taik among the negroes
at Springfield when it was received
there. The negroes in that communi
ty did not like Tyler, who killed a
negro by the name of Jenkins, sever
al years oo. Tyler was a very power
ful mulatto and prominent in mid
night societies. His body was carried
to Springfield by his relatives for
burial. There are no new develop
ments in the case of Artihur Bowen
and he is now thought to have
changed his course and crossed the
Savannah river into Georgia.

The church was beautifully deco
rated, the color scheme being white
and green. The bride and groom
stood under a beautiful trellis of
Southern smilax and white Cherokee
roses, from which was suspended a
floral horseshoe and a pure white
dove. The bridal robe was white
satin, garnished with real lace and
pearl trimming. She wore a veil
caught up with lillies of the valley
and a diamond sunburst, a gift of
the groom, and carried a shower
bouquet of bride's roses and lillies,
of the valley. The bridesmaids wore
white crepe de ichine over messaline,
black picture hats and carried white
carnations and maidenhair ferns.
The uslhers were George Ulmer
and Jessie Haigler of St. Matthews,
Marion Crook of Cameron and W. R.
Huffman of Elloree. Thomas Weeks

Cotton Picker a Success.
The Raleigh Times says the most
interesting exhibition we saw at the
fair was a cotton picker at work.
We had hardly ever expected to see
a machine that would do the work
so nearly perfectly as this one. The
machine gets the cotton, all of it
and gets it rapidly. There is noth
ing complicated about it and type
of engine, especially built for the
purpose, would, perhaps, add to the
effectiveness of the machine by re
moving some of its weight. Bait it
is easily drawn by one horse as it
is. This machine certainly leads one
to believe that a revolution is com
ing in the manner of gathering the

ACADEMY OF MUSIC.
U. S. Marine Band Attraction This
Afternoon at 2:30.
In speaking of the U. S. Marine
Band which appears here at the Acad
emy of Music this afternoon et 2:30
o'clock the Baltimore American says:
"Professor William H. Santelmann's
work as director is not marred by
any of the fantastic mannerism, no
ticeable in so many leaders, yet he
by no means fails to put color and
imagination into his effect, and his
conservatism does not make him
pedantic or stilted. By far the most
interesting numbers on the program
were Wagner's Tannhause overture,
the beautiful Parsifal prelude and the
"Song to the Evening Star," baritone
solo by Mr. Charles Rabold, who was
the vocalist. That director Santel
mann has his instruments well bal
anced showed in the overture, for
this has seldom received a better ren
dition in this city. From the first
slow, solemn movement until it rises
in grand swell with tumultous feel
ing there was an exact balance that
was rarely artrlstics. In this the
horns were heard to great advantage.
An event in the musical world of
this city will be the appearance of
Sig. Creatore and His band at the
Academy of Music, Nov. 3rd. If Crea
tore could describ the force which
emanates from him when be takes
the baton he might be able to ans
wer the Question: What is genius?
No one can tell what it is, but every
one feels that Creatore has it. The
spirit or i? travels over the house,
electrifies every member of the band
and makes people in the audience
shout with pleasure and tremble
with appreciation. The Asheville Cit
izen last February said: "Wizard of
the Baton is Great Creatore. Musical
triumph last night at the auditorium.
Peerless leader proves claim that he
has the finest band in the world.
Proving beyond all question his
claim to superioty the great Creatore
delighted two large audiences at the
Auditorium yesterday afternoon and
evening, it is no exaggeration to state
that no band artist who has ever
visited Asheville created such a last
ing and favorable impression as did
this magnificent leader of a match
less organization. While Creatore
has mannerisms decidedly individual
he is magnetic and passionate and
his fervent spirit communicated it
self to his players and to his au
dience. His band rendered a musical
program of the highest excellence
and of wide range. Brasses and reeds
vied with each other in rare phrasing
and delicate expression, and the au
dience was at times carried away by
the emotions of the music which
