KILLING NEAR BNCE
ONE NEGRO SHOOTS AND KILLS
i - i^fe
Trouble look Place at a Hot Suppe;:
Seid at the House of Another Ne
Vances, Dec. 27?Special: A
shooting scrape took place about one
mile above this place late Tuesday
afternoon, in which Boston Parcher
was shot and killed by William Ev
ans. Both the parties to the shooting
were colored. A shooting match at
the house of Augustus White with
plenty of booze near by seems to
have been the order of the evening
until the killing took place. White
is also a negro. \
j. It seems that bad blood had exist
ed between Parcher and Evans for
some time, and on this particular
occasion they seem to have decided
to settle the matter, which they did
as above stated. Parcher was a bro
ther-in-law of Evans and bore a very
unsavory reputation. It will be re
palled that two of. the brothers of
Parcher were slain about .five years
ago by one Emanuel Mellard.
Magistrate T. M. Felder empahnel
ed a jury and held an inquest this
morning over the dead body of Bos
ton Parcher. After hearing several
witnesses! and Inquiring into all the
facts connected with the killing, the
? jury returned a verdict that the de
ceased came to his death by William
Evans, who acted in self-defense Ev
ans was released from custody.
GOOD ROADS TRAIN COMING.
Atlantic Coast Line Demonstrators
W?I Be Here.
The Good Roads Train of the At
lantic Coast Line Railway will ar
rive in this city about noon on next
Wednesday and remain here until
the next morning. The train will
spend several days ia this county and
will visit besides Orangeburg, Eutaw
ville, Cameron, Cope and then on to
Denmark. By making these several
stops in this Immediate vicinity it
will be possible for a larger number
of persons interested in the work to
visit the train and gather new ideas
as to the building of roads.
There are traveling with this train
besides the officials of the road sev
eral experts from the United States
government who will be in charge of
the lecture work and will explain the
working of the road building machin
ery. The lectures will be accompa
nied with pictures which will give
some idea of the work from the very
oeginning of making a road to its
completion and the methods of keep
ing the road in repair so that it will
at all times be hard and serviceable.
Both the lectures and pictures will be
The matter of good roads is a very
Important one and one which the
people of this section need to learn
more about. While the roads gener
ally in this section are in very good
condition, they could be greatly im
proved if those in charge of them
were more familiar with the latest
and Improved methods of building
them. It would not he a bad idea for
the Township Commissioners of each
township to visit this train and gain
a more intelligent Idea of road mak
ing from the lectures and demonstra
tions which will be provided.
The Township Commissioners
would learn many valuable lessons
in road building and hearing the lec
tures, and would bo better qualified
for their duties of road building,
and the roads would gradually be
come more and more improved until
they would reach a condition which
would require very little to keep
them in repair and at all times they
would be easy to travel, thereby ma
king it less expensive to carry cotton
and other produce to market.
. These trains are operated at great
expense by the Atlantic Coast Line
Railway for the sole purpose of try
ing to benefit the section through
which it runs, and the railroad au
thorities hope that the people gener
ally and the road builders particular
ly of the county will visit the train
and hear the lectures and see the
pictures. Remember that the train
will be at the Passenger Station of
the Atlantic Coast Line Railway in
this city on next Wednesday morn
ing at 12 o'clock and that all are
invited to visit it.
Two Suspects Are Held.
Chief of Police Dowie, of St. Mat
thews, and Deputy Sheriff F. F. Hill,
of Calhoun County, have two men in
charge whom they have good reason
to believe are the men who held up
and robbed the train at Hardeeville
some time ago. The men, while pas
sing through St. Matthews on Sunday,
were taken in charge by these officers
and placed in jail. The government
was notified and inspector Burrows
fiom Savannah came over and looked
into the matter. After a most rigid
examination of the suspects, Mr.
Burrows had them photographed and
will have them held until further in
vestigation. He says they fit the de
scriptions of the robbers very well.
The suspects gave their names as
John F. Lynch from Massachusetts
and Clyde Carter from Virginia. I

Death of an Old Citizen.
The announcement of the death of
Mr. .T. N. Frith, of the firm of Silly
and Frith, came as a distinct shock
to this community, where he has liv
ed nearly all his life. Mr. Frith died
suddenly at his farm near Stilton
Friday morning. He had gone up
there to look after some business
matters, and went into one of the
tenant houses to warm, the morning
being quite cold. While sitting be
fore the fire he was taken suddenly
ill and died before medical aid could
reach him. The cause of his death
was heart failure. Mr. Frith was
fifty-eight years old. He was a good
citizen and his death will he regret
ted by a large circle of friends. He
was never married and is survived
by his mother.
' 'SUBS THE WKSTHRN UNION".
Itor. J. R. Smith Esters Suit Against
the Telegraph Company.
Rev. J. R. Smith, the well-known
Baptist 'Minister of Cordova, has en
tered suit against the Western Union
Telegraph Company for .$500 dam
ages for the mental anguish and hu
miliation caused him by the failure
of the telegraph company to deliver
a telegram to the congregation of a
Baptist Church at Neesea which ex
pected Mr. Smith to preach to them of
his inability to keep the appointment
and conduct the services as he had
promised to do. ?>
The failure of the telegraph com
pany to deliver the message as it
had been paid to do, to tho congre
gation, caused the people to assemble
at the church and await the coming
of the Rev. Mr. Smith, when he bad
notified them by telegraph that he
would be unable to keep the appoint
ment. The criticism which 13 under
stood to have followed, caused the
filing of the petition for damages to
the minister through humiliation and
Judge C P. Bruason brings t:he ac
tion for Rev. Mr. Smith, and will be
tried at the next term of the court,
which will be held in January. The
telegraph company after falling to
deliver the message refunded it, but
that will not relieve it of..the respon
sibility for its failure to keep its con
tract. The case is the first of the
kind ever tried here and fis conclu
sion will be watched with Interest.

BODY GROUND TO PIECES.
Railroad Carpenter Killed in A. O.
L. Yards at Florence.
Norphle Pleasants, a white carpen
ter, who was employed In the car
repairing department of the Atlantitc
Coast Line shops at Florence, was
run over by a Coast Line work train
In the freight yards at Florence Sat
urday night and instantly killed. His
body was literally ground to pieces
by the wheels of the train, which
was backing through the yards.
Coroner Cooper held an inquest and
the verdict was that Pleasants came
to his death by being struck by a
Coast Line train through his own
carelessness. The body was shipped
to his old home at Aberdeen, North
l Carolina, Sunday morning.
QUITE A HEAVY COUPLE.
A Man and Wife Weighs Over Seven
It is not true that nobody loves
a fat man as is shown by the mar
riage of Samuel C. Drew and Miss
Rose Lavigue in Dover, N. H. His
457 pounds demanded a seat all to
himself on a train during their hon
eymoon, and his. wife, who was Miss
Rose Lavigue, had to have another
to accomodate her 278 pounds. This
precluded all Idea ot the whispered
exchange of remarks suitable for a
honeymoon trip. Then again when
they left the train each had to have
a taxicab apiece. Even when they
got home, where their coming was
expected, the town could not furnish
another rig but a hayrack in which
they could ride.
He Used Them Up.
Chief of Police Dowle, of St. Mat
thews, seems to be a bad man for evil
doers to monkey with. He arrested
one Kit Ed. Ifowell, for disorderly
conduct, who struck the Chief, who
proceeded to put a head on Kit, so to
speak. Later, he overhauled on-.> Son
fillis, who was full of blind tiger
booze, and claimed the whole eide
walk, cursing every one who claim
ed a part, of It. When tho Chief
tackled Son he did not have his
trusty club, but when the booze ar
tist attempted to rush him, he made
jelly out of his face with his fist.
All of which goes to prove that St.
Matthews' effluent Chief of Police is
a bad man with or without, his trusty
baton for evildoers to tackle.
The Unwritten Law.
At Rome, Gav Douglas II. Harris,
aged 25, was shot and instantly kill
ed Wednesday night by Uriah L.
Starnes, a travelling salesman,
Starnes immediately surrendered to
the police. He made a tsatement
charging that Harris had wrecked
his home and declaring that he was
happy in getting his revenge.
