After an illness of several week:
Mr. Thomas F. Harmon died at hi
residence in this city yesterda:
about one o'clock. On the 4th o
December next he would have beei
sixty nine years old. He had oftei
said to the writer that he was born
the same month and day and yea
of father of the writer.
He was a gradson of the Thoma:
Frean who was a remarkable man i
For many years Mr. Harmon wa:
actively identified with the commer
cial life of Newberry. He conducte<
one of the .mercantile establishment:
of the town for many years just afte:
In his latter life he devoted himsel
to farming and truck gardening: H<
was a man of great energy an<(
seemed never to tire.

Coroner Did His Duty.
The following paragraph appeare<
in a recent issue of the Columbia
Under dates of October 19th Sen,
ator Geo. S. Mower .> Newberrl
wrote Governor Heyward that in th<
last 6o days two homicides had beer
comitted in Newberry county an<
the accused were still at large. Mr
Mower, supposing that the corone
had informed the governor's office o
the crimes, wrote that it would b<
advisable to offer a reward. Gov
Heyward wrote back for a descrip
tion and upon receipt of Mr. Mower%
reply Monday offered a reward o
5 in each case for the arrest of Fe(
Herbert and Will Simnpkins.
The plain inference is that Govern
or Heyward had not received thi
descriptin of the men and the othe:
proper papers frcm the coroner pre
vious to his receiving Senator
Mower's letter. Coroner Lindsay
states that he sent descriptions of
both parties accompanied with the
other necessary papers, to the gov
ernor at the time when the respec
t.-ive killings occurred: That one re
port was acknow!edged by the gov
ernor and the other was not. This
relieves Coroner Lindsay of all
blame in the matter.
The fourth Quarterly conference of,e
the Newberry circuit will be held 'at
New Chapel next Saturday.
Deputy Sheriff Duncan Johnson
went to, Chester a day of two ago for
a negro, John Bailey, wanted at Whit
mire for violating the dispensary law.
As usual Mr. Johnson'got his man,
and brought him back to Newberry.
On yesterday the prisoner was turned
over to the'magistrat-at Whitmire.
