KILLED HIS FATHER.
Negro Boy 16 Years of Age Says he
Shot After His Father Had
Beat His Mother.
"He had been beating my mother
with a belt and then with a stick, had
thrown her across the lounge and
choked her, had run her out of the
house, and he had told me if I didn't
like it I could get out, too, and when
I went out of the house he followed
me and talked about what he would
do, and when I got down the hill I
shot him once while he was following
me," is, in substance, the statement
made by Wesley Suber, a negro boy
about sixteen years of age, who is
now in the county jail charged with
murder in the killing of his father,
Jordan Suber, at an early hour on
Sunday morning, in front of Suber's
home. on the premises of Mr. T. C.
Pool. The weapon used was a dou
ble-barrelled breech-loading shotgun.
Only one shot was fired, the load of
No. 7 shot taking effect in Jordan
Suber's right shoulder, death result
ing almost instantaneously. Mr. T.
C. Pool. who heard the shot and
screams, sent in a 'phone call to the
police station, and shortly afterwards
Policeman W. P. Bedenbaugh arriv
ed on the scene and took the negro
boy into custody. He was lodg'ed in
the guard house and was turned ovcr
to Sheriff Buford on Sunday morn
ing. Coroner Lindsay empanelled a
jury shortly after the killing and held
an inquest, the verdict being that Jor
dan Suber came to his death from a
gunshot wound at the hands of Wes
ley Suber. Jordan Suber was fire
man at the plant of the Southern Cot
ton Oil company. -
From the testimony taken at 'the
inquest and all the facts obtainable, it
appears that Jordan Suber went home
shortly after midnight on Saturday
night and trouble ensued between
him and his wife, Antna Suber. The
woman and the boy both say that
Jordan Suber beat her, ran her out
of the house. that Wesley also left
the house, and that Jordan was ad
vancing on Wesley when Wesley
fired the fatal shot. There were no
witnesses save the boy and woman.
The boy when seen in jail on Sun
day morning said that when Jordan
Suber came home after midnight on
Saturday night he sat on the door
step and Anna asked him where he
had been. Jordan got mad, words
ensued and he hit Anna across the
head with a belt, continued the boy,
and then grabbed a stick and struck
her with that, and then threw her
across the lounge and chocked her.
"He then ran mother out of the
house and told me if I didn't like it
I could get out. I took my gun so if
I went anywhere I would have my
gun. I told him there was no use in
hitting mother and he told me to shut
up. I hushed and he come out doors
and talked about what he would do.
I got down the hill and shot him
once. I then went to the house and
told Mr. Pool."
Follo .'ing is the testimony taken
at the coroner's inquest:

the town of Newberry, S. C. On
April 9 I was awake and I heard a
