terested in this proposed line.
It was an earnest meeting compos
of earnest men and we believe will
sult in something being done to
irds the building of this proposed
Aley line. Of course the meeting
ts largely for the purpose of talking
er the situation and putting mat.
rs in shape so that some definite ac
m might be taken. The Newberr3
mmittee was most cordially receiv
by the people of Edgefield, and
cm expressions, which we heard or
I sides, we are satisfied, as we have
retofore said. that the sentiment ol
Iefield is decidefly in favor ol
Aking the main line of this propos
road via Newberry. Of course af
r that is done it will be easy anc
11 be the proper thing to do to ex
nd branch lines towards Plum
-anch. Greenwood and other points
tt the first thing to consider is t(
t the main line. The resolutior
ich was adopted is probably th(
st thing that could have been don(
id about the only thing that thi:
nference could do.
We have no dubt that the trollei
ie out from Augusta will be glad t(
operate in the building of this road
id as the Seaboard has n6 line int
ugusta, we should think it woul(
so be glad to cooperate so as. t<
tv. connection with Augusta, an,
e most available place to connee
ith the Seaboard is at Whitmire.
In addition to the committee, wliiel

ONE NEGRO KILTS ANOTHER.
The Killing Takes Place at Old Town
Inquest Held-Negro Sur
Ed .Jessie. and John Hardy. both
colored men. liviii on Mr. Z. 0.
Whittle's place, near Old Town. had
a little shooting engagement Satur
day which resulted in an inquest over
Hardy's dead body nnd the loe!:1v
up in jail of Jessie. The kill.i. lla
pened about 8 o'clo.'. Mr. \ "ittl'
notified Sheriff Bufo (I and Cor r
Lindsay Sunday me: of the z -
fair. The coroner ti.o k '
attend( and notified . :t J. U
Willianis to aet for 4. Ir. Whi
tle wrote the shei' t :::. ,,essie was
ready to surrender r A -:::d come
to Newberry Monday iorning. The
sheriff, however. thought it best for
hiim to attend the inquest.
From the fqcts brought out at the
inquest it seems that several negroes
employed by Mr. Whittle lived in a
double house on his place. Hardy
and others occupied one end of the
dwe.ling, Jessie and others occupying
the other end. Just about dark on
Saturday Hardy came home, having
some whiskey in him, and engaged in
a word battle with Henry Spearman
and his wife, Henrietta. After a lit
tle Hardy began cursing and abusing
Jessie who was in his part of the
house. Hardy went in and waved his
pistol in Jessie's face and said "I'll
kill you if you've got hair.'' Hardy
backed out of the door and shot at
ws time. Immediately Jessie
fired two or three shots. A few min
utes afterward some of the negroes
went out and found Hardy lying face
downward, apparently dead. The
coroner's examination showed that
two balls took effect. One of these
went through the fleshy part of the
right arm into the right breast, the
other was in the lower part of the
back, right at the spine. Although
efforts were made no physician could
be secured. The dead man had a pis
tol in his hand, one chamber of which
cotained a loaded cartridge, another
an empty one which appeared to have
been recently shot. Three. iegro wo
men and a negro man saw the shoot
ing and all testified that Hardy fired
the first shot.
Soon after Sheriff Buford. arrived
at the scene of the killing,: Ed. Jessie
surrendered to him and w'as brought
to Newberry Sunday night and plac
ed in jail. Mr. Wikittle retained Mr.
Eugene S. Blease to defend the negro
and Mr. Blease was present at the
-inquest. He will make application
~.for bail for Jessie one day this week.

OLD FOLKS DAY.
First Held at Colony On Sunday
Large Crowd-Good Ad
0ld folks dl(ay was observed at Col
011Y Lutheran chureh on Sunday.
There was a very large co0igre;ation
pr, -ni :nd everyone greatly enjoy-ed
isev. . A. Sligh is pastor of
i- u', --d he had charge of the
ing the morning. An ad
-;i.n; aade by the Rev. J. D.
was pastor of this church
- o. There was also an
-e Rev. Z. W. Beden
bau. Mi. -vies spoke of the old,
church and -'.e building of it and
compared the old church to the pres
ent handsome country church which
is now occupied by the congregation.
He also spoke of the progress which
had been made in the growth and de
velopment of the congregation. He
and Mr. Bowles are natives of New
berry and, much of their ministerial
life has been spen-t in this county. Mr.
Sligh who is now the pastor of the
church had served it as pastor many
years agz. It was entirely fitting,
that Mr. Sligh and Mr. Bowles who,
have probably been in the ministry
of the Lutheran church in this state
longer than any others should have
part in these exercises.
At the conclusion of the morning
exercises dinner was served on the!
,rounds and the old people and the,
yonz people all enjoyed an hour of
social intercourse, talking over the
event:; in cnnnection with the history
of this congregaticn.
After the dinner was over a very
istructive and interesting talk to the
young people was made by Mr. J. B.!
O'Neall Holloway. He pointed out
the importance to the young people
of attending the Sunday school pnd
studying the Bible and only in this
way can the church be built up.
Dr. D. M. Crosson, a native of this
county but who now resides at Lees
ville and who had come over to Pros-:1
perity to deliver an address to the
membiers,of the Company G. at their
annual barbecue on Saturday wasi
also present and made a very inter
esting talk to the congregation. He
said it had been 26 years since he.
had been at Colony church and, of
course, he noticed a great many
changes during that time. Not having1
been in the community in so long a
time the changes were probably more
noticeable to him than to those who
had been living here.
This church is' 60 years old now,
has a menibership of over two hun
dred. ~The first exereises to the old
folks at Colony on Sunday were a de-I
cided success and greatly enjoyed by
the large congregation present.
