CAUGHT ROBBING STORES.
Will Haigler Tells On His Pal
Jump From Third Story Win
dow and Escape.
Mr. J. L. Burns, a merchant in low
er Main street, has been missiig some
pocket knives from his si.e for
some time. He suspec.ed Lihat sowe
one was either enteriug t*ae stote af
ter he had closed or tint wey w- re
stolen .through the day but he caiher
thought ith-at the store was being en
tered at night. On Saitudxay nigc iie
employed Mr. 1. 0. 1>rcon, formerly
of the Newberry police force, to
watch the store during the night. Po
liceman E. N. Austin was with Mr.
Iarton a portion of the time and at
a quarter past twelve o'clock they
&aw a negro boy go to the back door
of the store, a door which is not of
ten used, and prize it open and enter.
They immediately followed him into
the store and found Will Haigler, Jr.,
a negro boy twelve -or fourteen years
old, to be the person who entered. He
was arrested and he told the officers
that another negro had sent him into
the store and that they would find
this negro in hiding under the cotton
pLatLform. Policeman Austin remain
ed to watch 'the platform while Mr.
Burton earried Haigler to the police
station. On 'the way to the station
Haigler 'told Mr. Burton that another
negro was at this same time in Mr.
J. W. White's store. Mr. Burton re
turned with Haigler and let him
climb a tiee near the store of Mr.
Whit-e and he entered .through a win
dow. P,lieema-n Austin remained on
guard at the platform.
There was another negro in Mr.
White's store but instead of Haigler
returning with him to Mr. Burton
both he and Haigler jumped from the
third story window of Mr. White's
store to .the-'roof of his dwelling house
a,nd ran for their liberty.
In the meantime Mr. Burton had
aroused Mr. White and 'they fired af
ter the two negroes bat failed to
bring them to a stop. They both
made good their -escape.
Policeman Austi;n, however, captur
ed Haigler Sunday afternoon at the
home of his pareults, and he is now in
jail on the charge of house breaking
and larceny awaiting trial at the ses
sions court. He was very much bruis
ed up on acount of jumping from the
window .and can scarcely walk. The
other negro has not been arrested
though Policeman Austin has his
name a.nd hias -a warrant sworn out for
him and expeet's to capture him soon.
Mr. White has missed several pis
tols from hi's store during the past
few weeks and it is probable that
'these boys have been committting
these robberies for sometime taking
only small articles.

THE HUNTER CASE.
Supreme Courts Affirms Lower Court
-Case May Go to United States
It is probable that there will be
some aetion within the iext few days
looking towards taking the ease of
the State v. G. Wash Hunter, convict
ed of manslaughter, to the supreme
court of the United States. Hunter,
who is under senttence of eight years,
was convicted in February, l08, and
he 'appealed to the supreme court of
this State. During the past several
days the supreme court has rendered
an opinion affirming the judgment of
the lower court. Unless the remittitur
should be stayed pe.nding some other
steps in the case, Hunter would begin
the serv.iee of his sentence on Satur
The Hunter case has been hotly
contested and has created a great deal
of interest throughout the State. Hun
ter was e iarged with murder in the
killing i . Elbert F. Copeland, during
a poker game in the store of R. Lee
Hunter, a brother of G. Wash Hun
ter, near Goldville, in the lower pait
of Laurens county. Hunter was
tried first before Judge James Ald
rich, 'at Laurens, in September, 1906,
and was convicted of manslaughter.
Judge Aldrich set aside this verdict
on 'account of irregularities in the
management of the jury while it had
the case under consideration. Du,ing
this same iterm of court Hunter was
again tried before Judge Aldrich, and
the jury failed to agree and a mistrial
was ordered. Again in may, 1907,
before Judge Watts, and in Sepbem
ber, 1907, before Judge Gary, the
case resulted in mistrials. FollowinJ
the 1trilal before Judge Gary the State
moved for a change of venue, whih
was granited, the ease being transfar
red to Greenwood county, where Hun
ter was tried before Judge Gage, in
February, 1908. and convicted of
manslaughter, Judge Gage sentencing
the defendant to serve eight years at
The appeal -to the supreme court
was on a number of grounds, includ
ing the question of jurisdiction, and
elceptions in regard to the admission
and exclusion of evidence, and the
judge's charge. All of the execp
tions were overruled by the supreme
In order to 'take a ease of this kind
into the Federal supreme court, it is
necessary ito show that Federal ques
tons are involved. The appeal in the
Hunter ease contained *a number of
exeptions raising constitutional ques
tions' and it is presumed that if *a
writ of error is aplplied for to go to
the Federal supreme eoart, it will be
on the ground that the defendant has
the right to have these constitutional
questions reviewed by the Federal

(Rev. Ed ward Fulenwider, Pastori)
The Chureh of the Redeemer had
a'n inspiring day Sundahy. At the
morningZ service the audience filled
the auditorium and most of the Sun
Tay school room-. The pastor preached
on " The Greatest Battle in the
World.". basing his sermon on the
temptation of Jesus. The music at
this service was heard with much
pleasure. The choir sang .a be.autiful
anthem. and Mr. Voigt of the Cable
Piano Company delighted thbe entire
audience with his masterful singing.
Thioe were fortuniate who heard him.
At the evening service a large con
gregation filled the auditorium. The
pastor preached a sermon to women.
Text: Ezekiel 16 :44. "As is the
mother. so is her daughter.'' The
lessons were drawn friom the life of
H-annah portrayed in I Sam. -1. He
showed that t.he sum and substance of
her beautiful, godly, and influential
life were fonnd in four sentences.
1. She loved her husb)and.
2. She loved her home.
:1. She loved and worshipped God.
4. She was a woman of prayer.
Thre pastor laid special stress on
te fact that the tr:1ining of the clil

mothers of today, and yet there are
n 'r things t'o take them away
