Storing Contraband-Guilty and
rine Fifty Dollars.
Robert Porterfield was up before
the mayor again on Saturday morn

had frequently been before the courts
on the charge of violating the whis
key laws, and has several times been
convicted. There are now two or
three cases in the sessions court on
appeal from the mayor's court.
The police department had for
some time suspected Porterfield
though some time ago, when he was
up and convicted, he promised to quit
the business. This last case against
him was worked up by Policeman J
C. Adams. When he concluded that
the time was right for him to search
Porterfield's establishment, he call-.
ed to his assistance Policeman H. H.
Franklin, and on Friday made the
search. They did not find but a
small quantity of whiskey, but there
were evidences' that he had been in
the retail.business. He was fined $50
by Mayor Brown, which he paid dur
ing the day Saturday.

from the superintendent of educatii

It would seem that the deeper tj
state board of education gets in
the high school business, the mo
complicated it becomes.
Frosperity and Excelsior, it w
be remembered. had to unite in c
der le zecure a high school at Prc
perity. Little 'Mountain secured t]
high school without joining with ai
other school district. The Litt
Mountain school district at present
known as school district No. 30;
will also be known as high scho
district No. 1; the Prosperity di
trict has been known as school di
trict No. 14; it will also be knov
as high school district No. 2. T
Little Mountain district gets $21
from the state appropriation ai
the Prosperity district gets $40
This money will have to be accounti
for by the superintendent of educ

treasurer and will also have to I
kept as a separate fund by him.
We are glad that these two-sdhoo
are to have a high school depax

would have been better if it had ne

e The coroner went yesterday and
held the inquest. Kemp and another
ie negro had gone to Laurens on Satur
to day for the purpose of purchasing
re some whiskey. They were met at
Gary's Lane by two other negroes
[i and the four came on to Mr. Amick's
r- store. It is reliably stated that they
were selling the whiskey along the
way and around the store, and that
they had imbibed very freely them
le selves. Passing along the public
is road. near 9r. Livingston's place,
they began to shoot at women in the
ol road and into the houses of the ne
s groes, who live near the road. Mr.
s- Livingston, hearing the disturbance,
m went out to see -what the trouble was.
ie He asked Kemp and his colleagues
i3 what they meant by such conduct,
Ld whereupon Kemp got out of the bug

with a drawn pistol. Mr. Livingston
warned him to throw up his hands

however, Kemp drew his pistol on
Mr. Livingston and snapped it, but it
either failed to go off,~or he had dis
charged all of the chanibers, but
d when he attempted to shoot Mr. Liv
2 ingston, Mr. Livingston drew his pis
i tol and fired at Kemp. After the first
shot, which probably penetrated the
right breast, Kemp again tried to
sbooi Mr. Livingston, whereupon Mr.
Livingston fired the second shot and
Kemp fell to the ground. Mr. J. L.
