Thursday morning on a hunting trip.
They went to Gardner's Bluff, hitch
ed their horse and buggy and nothing
definite could be learned of their
whereabouts until the bodies were
Load Passed Through Body.
Prentiss Moore, the son of Mrs.
Emily E. Moore, and the younger of
the two boys, was found lying on the
south side of a branch about five feet
deep. His feet were towards the bot
tom of the branch, and he clutched a
briar between his fingers. An exami
nation showed that the load from a
shotgun had entered his body from
the side near the edge of the should
er blade, ranged towards the. middle
of the chest, passing through the body.
The entire load, shot and wad, was
lying underneath his clothes, in front
of the chest.
Shot Through Heart.
Guy Rogers, a son of County Treas
urer N. B. Rogers, and the o'lder of
the boys, was found in the bottom of
the branch, only a few feet from the
body of young Moore. His face was
turned down, his body was nearly in
a kneeling position, with his head in
the edge of the water, in a puddle of
blood. He, too, was wounded with a
shotgun, the toad entering directly
into the heart from th'e front, passing
through the chest, shattering the ribs
on the rear side, some of the shot
burying themselves in the skin of the
back. One was found inside the shirt,
near the wound. The wound in young
Rogers' body ranged slightly down
from the front.
A double-barrel shotgun was found
on the brink of the branch, the muz
zle slightly elevated, pointing towards
the ditch, one trigger cocked, and in
the breech was caught a small part of
the shirt of young Rogers. One bar

Within about 150 yards is a negro

Thursday night and Friday morn
ing searching parties were out look
ing for the boys. The party was in
creased ilargely last night, and with
lanterns the entire swamp on 'this side
of the river was carefully searched.
The Gruesome Discovery.
A party was again formed this
morning, many who had been out all
night ag'ain renewing the search,
which was begun at the place where
the boys were last seen, with the un
derstanding that it was to spread
gradually and take in every foot of
the ground. The portion where the
boys' bodies were found was assigned
to a party, among whom were Frank
Crosland and W. C. Carlisle. Mr.
Crosiand was riding horseback up
the branch, when he discovered the
body of young Moore.
The bodies remained as they were
found until the coroner empanelled
his jury, when they were moved and
an examination made by Dr. W. J.
Crosland. The jury is making a
thorough examination and taking the
testimony of everyone in the immed
Accident or Murder?
Many think it practically impossi
ble to reconcile the facts with the
theory of accident, yet nothing has de
veloped to point conclusively to the
theory of murder.
The coroner's jury adjourned late
this afternoon to meet again next
Wednesday, when additional testimony
will be taken with a view to throwing
further light upon what now seems to
ean impnetrable mystery.

Kershaw County Man Appointed oi
.Columbia, November 26.-John G
Richards, Jr., of Liberty Hill, Kershaw
county, will fill the unexpired term o:
the late James Mattison Sullivar
for railroad commissioner. The ap
pointment was made this afternoon by
Governor Martin F. Ansel. Major
Richards was not an applicant foI
the position, 'but he was recommend'
ed to the governor by numerous
friends of both. The term for whici
Major Richards is appointed 'is twen
Major Richards -served twelve
years in the general assembly, as a
member of the house of representa
tives. During that time he made a de
termined fight for higher education
and especially for thle common schools
of the State. Likewise, he was Clem
son's "standby" in the house. During
the days of the old State dispensary,
John Richards, -was a hearty advocate
of the system, but immediately upon
the death of the dispensary he became
a prohibitonist and was always, in re
cent- years, pressing that measure in
the house. During the session of 1909,
when the prohibition measure was
passed in the house, along with Men
del L. Smith, a prohibition leader, re

Major Richards has held two other
commission appointments under Gov
ernor Ansel, -one being the commis
sion in the matter of the women's
monument and the other being the
Jamestown exposition commission.
Last summer Major Richards was in
the race for governor.
The fact that -Major Richards is
named will probably mean that there
will have to be a rehearing before the
raroad commission in the matter of
the cotton piece goods rate to Char
leston, and the general freight rate
hearing also may have to be postpon
ed. It so happened that Governor An
eel did not name any one for the posi
tion of railroad commissioner out of
the thirtyone applicants.
T. B. Lumpkin will remain as sec
retary of the commission. B. L.
Caughman will probably be ellected
chairman in January. The other mem
ber of the commission to come in dur
ing January is G. McDuffie Hampton,
of this city. Major Earle holds his
posion until January.
