FOR A HOSPITAL.
e Committee from Chamber of Con
merce to Confer with Phy
. The Hearld and News has froi
a time to time had something to sa
about the building of a hospital i
r Newberrv. It is learned that th
president of the Chamber of Corr
merce some ten days ago appointed
special committee, composed c
Messrs. G. B. Cromer, J. B. Hunte
and F. N. Martin, to gather some sta
tistics and information in regard t
the operation and cost as well as th
t success of hospitals in other communi
ties. It is also learned that this com
7 mittee will have a meeting with th
physicians of the city in the Chambe
1 of Commerce rooms this afternoon a
6 o'clock. It will cost some money t
- erect a hospital that will be suitabl
i for a community of this size, and i
- will cost something to keep it ii
I operation, and it is not probable tha
the income will be sufficient to pa;
rI any dividends, but it is a work whic
would benefit humanity and be :
blessing to many, who are not able to
go to more expensive hospitals an<
would be a worthy object for our lib
eral citizens to take into serious con
sideration. If some citizen, who i!
possessed of ample means, would con
tribute some $10,000 as a starter, b
would thus erect a monument to hi!
memory, which would be more lastin,
I than any monument of brass oi
I stone and which would continue to d<
ogood and alleviate suffering as thi
years go by..
It is hoped that something wil
come of the meeting, which it is pro
posed to hold this afternoon with thi
special committee and the physician
of the community.

NEGRO WOMAN KILED.
- Shot in the Back by Rich Collins
So Far Has Evaded the
1 Two negro killin-s took place in
! Newberry county on Saturday, one at
I Prosperity, in which one negro man
e killed another, and one up at Spear
-- man's in which a negro man shot a
a negro woman in the back, killing her
f almost instantly.
r The Herald and News gives the
testimony before the coroner as to
0 the killing of Mary Camel, and from
e this testimony it seems that is was a
ease of plain and simple murder.
- It is stated that Collins and Mary
a had a quarrel about a week before
r the killing. The following is the tes
timony taken at the coroner's in
D quest. Collins has not been arrested,
8 but the coroner has placed a warrant
t for his arrest in the hands of the
Sheriff Buford, when he heard of
the killing on Saturday night, had ar
ranged to go to Savannah on some
important business, but without wait
ing for the coroner's inquest, immed
iately dispatched his deputies to the
neighborhood of the killing with in
structions to arrest Collins if possi
ble. Up to yesterday, however, Col
lins had been successful in evading
capture. -The inquest was held on
Alice Jesse, sworn says: Just as
Mary Camel and I got off the bridge
Rich Collins asked Mary where she
stayed last night, (Friday August
2nd). The bridge is the overhead
bridge at Spearman-'s Siding. Mary
said she stayed with Alice Jesse.
Richard said hush, not to tell him
a damn lie. Mary says, "I am not
telling you a lie." He then shot her
with a'gun. The gun was a single bar
rel. After shooting her he threw out
the empty shell and put in another
one and shot her again. Before shoot
ing the second time she run behind
me. He told me not to tell him any
damn lie. I replied that I had told
him no lie. After shooting he went
up the' path towards home cursing at
her. She, (Mary) said, ''good-bye,
I am gone." 'The time of shooting
was about setting of sun. Mary was
returning home from Mr. Hudson's
I' Alice x Jesse.
Louis Jesse sworn says: I heard
two shots about the setting ~.of the
sun.'I was at home. This was August
3rd. The shot sounded like they were
down at the overhead bridge. I think
it is about three or four hundred
yards from my house to the bridge.
After the first shot heard hollering,
someone saying, ''O Lordy.'' Then
I heard another shot, then I heard
nothing else. Mary's boy, George
Werts, and I then came down here.
I saw Riehard Collins going .towards
his home withWa shot gun in his hands.
I met my wife coming towards me6
She told me Richard Collins had shot
Mary. When I reached Mary she
was dead. The dead woman was

George Werts sworn says: Mary
Camel is my mother. Richard. Collins
told my mother if she ev.gr.came on
Mr. Huidson 's place he would kill her.
That was about two weeks ago. I was
at Louis Jesse's house August 3rd
and heard two shots. This was a
little before sundown. I heard hol
lering. I came on down to the bridge
where the shots came fr'om. When I
got to mother she-was gasping. She
did not say anythirig.

KILLING NEAR PROSPERITY.
Two Negro Women Have a Dispute,
Husbands are Drawn Into it,
and One is Shot to Death.
Prosperity. Au. 4.-The ever-ready
pistol -ot in its work near Prosperitv
la-te Saturday evening. Fed Boyd
and Will Johnson, tenants of Mr.
Geori:e Hunter of the St. Luke's com
munity, had differences during the
year. Will tanked up on "blind-tig
er'' and got obstreperous and left
town to escape the guardhouse. It de
veloped'at the inquest held today by
Magistrate B. B. Hair that Fed and
Will met on the way home, and Will's
wife "cussed" Fed's wife. and that
brought the men into it. Will was
walking and dared Fed to get out of
the wagon. Fed got out and Will
opened on him with his rapid-fire
Maxim, firing six times and hitting
him once. That was fatal, entering
just over the heart. Boyd sank to
the ground and died at once. He was
brought back to town and the jury
of inquest found "that Fed Boyd
came to his death from a gunshot
wond at the hands of Will Johnson."
Johnson is still at large. He told
Mr. Hunter he would give himself up
and wanted him to go on his bond.
. Johnson came to Newberry on Sun
day and surrendered to the sheriff
and is now in jail. His version of the
difficulty differs somewhat from the
above. He confirms sthe statement
that about a month or such matter ago
his wife and Boyd's wife had some
difference and he siys that Boyd's
people doubleteamed on his wife, and
as a result he had Boyd's wife indict
ed before Magistrate .Hair. At the in
tervention of Mr. Hunter, however,
they agreed to settle this difficulty
and had apparently made friends. On
Saturday while in Prosperity, John
son says that he was toldl by someone
else that Boyd's wife had pushed his
wife off the sidewalk, but that he did
not trouble him about this.
About dark he and his Wife started
to their home on' foot and according
to his statement, were not apprehend
ing any difficulty with Boyd. Soon
after they had left the town, however,
they were overtaken by Boyd and his
wife and son in the wagon and at that
time he asked Boyd why he had push
ed his wife off the street and double
teamed on .him, so to speak. Boyd
immediately junmped out of the wa
gon and assaulted Johnson, wrench
iiig his arm and striking him on the
side of the head, and in the meantime
a son of Boyd's assaulted him from
the rear, striking him in the back. He
thereupon drew his pistol and shot
four times, one of the balls proving
Johnson says that he was -not drink
ing and a'hd had no whiskey during
the day. He said. that it was purely
accidental that he happened to have
a pistol. That some one, who owned
the pistol, had offered to pawn it to
him if he would lend him fifty cents.
but he did not have fifty cents, but
told this party that he had forty cents
and he loaned the forty cents and ac
epted the pistol as security and that
he had had it for only about one-half
hour. He says that when he left
Prosperity on Saturday afternoon he
thought that Boyd and. his wife had
gone ahead of him and he was not
anticipating any difficulty.
Death of An Only Child.
Wliliam Elsivorth Augustus Kibler,
the only child of Dr. and Mrs. E. H.
Kibler, after a long illness, died at
their home in Newberry on Saturday.
Aged, 14 months. The burial was had
at Rosemont on Sunday afternoon..
Death is always sad and if it can
be more sad it is when the only tight
is taken from the home, but the par
ents should remember that these dis
pensations are meant for our good and
it is only through suffering that we
ean be made perfect. The Herald and
News extends its sympathy.

LITTLE MOUNTAIN REUNION.
Exceptionally Large Crowd-C., N.
& L. Gives Good Service-Gov.
Ansel and Others Speak.
The nual reunion of the students
and friends of Newberry college was
held at Little Mountain on Frday.
This is probably one of the largest
aitherinos of its kind that is held
anywhere in the state. There are al
ways from three to five thousand peo
ple who attend these gatherings.
They 2o in order that they might
meet their friends at least once a year
from all of the surrounding country,
and it has come to be one of the fixed
institutions of this section.
The college always arranges fof
speeches to be delivered on the sub
ject of education. but as a rule, the
neople do not attend these gatherings
for the purpose of listening to speech
es and the speeches are heard by a
very small portion of the people who
This year it was the general opin
ion that the crowd was the largest
in the history of these reunions. The
C., N. & L. railroad made what it
thouoht ample preparations to han
ile the crowd that would go on the
trains, and instead of having only
three or four passenger coaches, as
has been the custom, there were this
year ten coaches on the train which
came from Laurens. Two of these
coaches were filled before the train
reached Newberry, and the crowd at
ewberry left scarcely standing
room for those who might desire to
Let on at stations between here and
Little Mountain. There were about
six hundred tickets sold at Newber
ry and about three hndred at Pros
perity. A large portion of the pas
sengers at Prosperity had to .vait
antil the train could come back from
Little Mountain for them. This road
also ran a special train rrom Colum
bia, which brought about five hun
red people. On the return trip the
C., N. &. L. made an extra run to
ewberry, permitting those who lesir
ed to leave the mountain at 4 o'clock
and reach Newberry about 5
Everybody who had to go by train
this, year was ready and willing,to
vote a resolution of thanks to the]
management of the C., N. &. I. for
their efforts to accommodate and take
care of the passengers who desired to
attend the reunion. In fact, the of
ficials did more than could have
been reasonably expected of them and
showed every disposition to accom
modate their passengers. This is the
first year that a special has been run
from Columbia. At least 1,500 people
went to the mountain by rail this
yer and a very conservative estimate
would place the attendance between
five and six thousand people. It was
a jolly and -good-natured crowd and
everybody seemed to enjoy meeting
everybody else, though the dust was
in evidence and the heat was some
what excessive at the foot of the
