KILLED OVER GAME CARDS.
Play Cards While Preaching Goes On
-Quarrel Over Money-One
Jim Longshore's dead body was
found in the grove near Flint Hill
negro church, in No. 4 township,
about 15 miles north of Newberry on
Wednesday morning, with a bullet
hole through the head.
The coroner was notified and went
immediately to the scene and em
paneled a jury and held the inquest.
Only two witnesses were examined
and one of them was in the party of
three when the killing took place.
Why he never said anything about it
except what he and Frank Rice said
to Isaac Swindler when they went to
his house Sunday afternoon to tell
him they wanted him to help them
out of trouble is not stated.
They went to churc'h and i stead of at
tending the service went into the
woods for a game of cards and quar
reled over the winnings. The result
is Jim Longshore was killed' and
Isaac Reed is in jail and a warrant
Dut for Frank Rice.
The verdict of the coroner's jury
is that the killing was done by Frank
Rice and that Isaac Reed is accessory.
The coroner arrested Reed and put
him in jail and issued a warrant and
placed it in the hands of Sheriff Bu
ford for Frank Rice.

Jim' Longshore were playing cards.
Jim: -Longshore picked' up -Frank
Rice's inoney, and Frank' Rice forbid
him to take it. Frank told' him if he
wanted hi? money he was welcome to
it, 'but he would have to win it. Jim
ald to Frank: "I've got your money,
I want to see you get it." At that time
Frank started towards Jim and Jim
was walking off when Frank got near
to Jim. Jim struck at Frank with' a
stick and knocked his hat off. At that
time Frank shot Jim. I saw him fall.
There was no one else but our three

and I saw Isaac Reed and Frank Rice
coming up' to my house walking very
fast. Frank Rice said to me: "Mr.
Swindler, let me see you a minute."
I walked off about ten steps from my
wife and Anna. Frank Rice asked me
the time a day. I told 'him I did not
know, but I thought it was about 6.30
elock P. M. "I want you to help me
out." I asked .him in what way. He
said a man was shot at Flint Hill to
day, and Frank said they said: "We
did it." I asked him who said that
.ou all did it. He said, "Josh Jones
said so." I told them I was going to
ook at my clock solI wouldknow what
I was talking about, and it was 7.15
r'clock P. M. I told them that if
here was any hereafter I would tell
what hours you all wvere here, and
hey walked off.

FOR NEW HOSE WAGON.
The Old One Worn Out And Dan
gerous-Council Asked to
There is need for a new hose wag
on- for the Excelsior Fire company.
If there is the council should proceed
to arrange to buy it. The people
generally know very little about' it
except ,that when there is. a fife they
expect the fire company to be on
hand and to be there promptly and to
save life and property and -it can-be.
said to the credit of the Newberfy
department that it is always prompt
and efficient. That being the case
and the department being a voluntary
one the members should be given
apparatus that is the least dangerous
to life. It should hardly be necessary
for the council to have a petition to
do this. The Mayor might ask the
council to give him permission to re
move the dangerous wagon, because
some one might be injured and the
town would be liable for damages.
However, the following petition is
being signed by nearly every one to
whom it is presented so as to give
the council some idea of the wisihes
of the taxpayers:
We, the undersigned, citizens and
taxpayers of the town of Newberry,
in the State of South Carolina, most
respectfully petition your honorable
body to purchase one two horse wag
o for the use of the Excelsior Hose
c ahis company has done and is do
ing 'good service, serving without " -
compeesation, and the wagons now in
use are dangerous to life of the mem
bers of said company.
Council should order a new hose
Nagon.even if the old one is not dan
gerous to the life of members. If the
depaptment needs it, buy it. We
should have the very best equipment
in our- fire department. We hope we
may never have occasion for it to
render service, but- when there is we
want them quick and they should
have the very best equipment.
