Annual Reunion of the Survivors at
Young's Grove Today.
One of the pleasantest days of all
the year for the survivors of Com
pany G., 13th Regiment, South Caro
lina Volunteers, is the occasion of the
I reunion which they hold each year.
This annual reunion will be held to
day at Young's Grove, just below
Prosperity. The crowd in attendance
promises to be the largest in a num
ber of years.
The regular business meeting will
be held in Prosperity at the usual
place at 9 o'clock this morning.
After the business meeting the
members of the company and their
relatives and friends will go to
Young's Grove. The address of the
occasion will be delivered by Col.
George Johnstone. Col. Johnstone is
too widely known as an orator to
need that anything should be said
of the kind of address he is expected
to deliver. Col. Johnstone is always
especially eloquent when his theme is
the Civil war and the struggles and
the hardships and the unfaltering
patriotism of the sons of South Car
olina who bore a stainless banner
through those four years of blood
and carnage. The old soldiers will
hear an address tomorrow which will
be well worth their time and atten

It Was For Use By Deaton, In York
ville Jail, and Was Prepared
By His Wife.
Yorkville, Aug. 25.-As to whether
or not he would use it if he had it is
altogether a matter of actual test: but
frorm. circumstances that occurred
during last week it would appear that
the only reason why W. E.
Deaton is without means to go
hence by the poison route is be
cause of the vigilance of Deputy
Sheriff John S. Sandifer.
Experience has taught the sheriff
and deputies that it is a good idea to
keep -up with all communications be
tween prisoners and their friends out
side, and that especial vigilance
hould be exercised in the case of
convicts tinder heavy sentences. The
exercise of this vigilance has enabled
Deputy Sandifer to intercept a small
paper of white powder that is evi
dently poison., intended for Deaton in
his last extremities before being
taken to the penitentiary.
One day last week there came a
letter for Deaton from his wife in
Fort Mill and Deputy Sandifer read
it over carefully. In it he found a
reference about like this: "I am going
to send it to you; but I would not,
had you not promised that you would
not use it until then, and had I not
promised you. I don't want to send
it. I am afraid. Now remember your
promise not to use it until everything
else fails. It will be stitched in the
hem of your pants."
Mrs.. Deaton came over to York
ville Friday bringing her children and
a bundle for her husband. Deputy
Sandifer gave her to understand that
the bundle would have to be left out
side until he could examine it. She
protested that she had several articles
that she needed for the children, and
made excuses intended to keep the
bundle in her possession until she
could see her husband. Mr. Sandifer
then told her to take out such arti
cles as were intended for her husband
and leave them outside; that he would
attend to the, delivery later.
After Mrs. Deaton had had an in
terview with he~r husband in the pres
ence of Mr. Sandifer, the deputy pro
ceeded to make a careful examination
of all the articles in the bundle, es
pecially the pants. idi the hem of
which he found a small paper package
filed with a white powder. He after
xgrd showed the powder to several
physicians: but none of them were
able to tell certainly what it is. Mr.
Sandifer. however, is very well satis
ied that the powder is a deadly
poison, and that it was the purpose of
Deaton to tuse it either before 'he
started for the penitentiary, or after
he may have decided that death was
preferable to a longer confinement in
Upon learning of the circumstances
outlined above. Major James F. Hart,
attorney for Deaton, promptly noti
led the c!erk of court of the with
drawal of the appeal he had entered
and said he would have nothing mor
to do wvith the case. The clerk im
mediately telegraphed for a peniten
tiary guard and Deaton will be taken
