EDITOR OF A>DERSOS 1STELLIfiF>TER
By W. J. Muldrow in Latter's Office?
J. A. Mullinax Is Slightly Injured.
Anderson, Nov. 16.?In a shooting
affray at the office of the Anderson
Mattress & Spring Bed factory today,
V. B. Cheshire, publisher of the Anderson
Intelligencer, was wounded
four times in the body and arm by
W. J. Muldrow, secretary of the company.
J. A. Mullinax, who was in the
office on business at the time, and attempted
to stop the shooting by stepping
between the )nen, received a
fi?sh wound in the right arm, just
above the wrist, ana :vir. mumivn o
coat as pierced by a couple of bullets,
6*id to have been fired by R. L.
Cheshire, Jr., through a window fror
outside the office. One of these bullets
passed through the left lapel and
the other through the sleeve, near the
Drives to Hospital.
After being wounded by Mr. Mul^row,
Mr. Cheshire got into his buggy
with his brother and a negro driver
and went directly to the hospital,
where his wounds were attended by
Dr. J. C. Harris and Dr. J. 0. Sanders, j
He had been shot in the shoulder and j
wrist and twice in the abdomen. It j
was at first thought that one of the |
latter wounds was very serious, but a (
more thorough examination perform-'
latfir 1 i v D r. Harris, showed that I
the abdominal wall had not been iper- J
forated, and he stated this afternoon j
that there was no cause whatever for j
anxiety as to Mr. Cheshire's condi-1
tion. The wound in the shoulder is j
the most serious, the ball having gone i
in toward the lungs.
Told Him to Throw Up His Hands.]
According to the story of the shooting
secured by the police, Mr. Cheshire
walked into Mr. Muldrow's office
about 9 o'clock and, drawing a pistol,
demanded that he throw up his hands.
Mr. Muldrow arose from his chair and
Mr. Cheshire fired, the ball going wide.
As he fired again, Mr. Mullinax knocked
up his arm, and the shot went into
the ceiling. The third shot passed
through the fleshy part of Mr. Mullinax's
right arm, near the wrist.

The attack made by Mr. Cheshire,'
on Mr. Muldrow today was the result}
of bad feeling which had its beginning
some time ago and grew out of
certain articles published in the An-;

Considerable excitement was created
by the difficulty and little else has
been talked on the streets here today.
Victor B. Cheshire is a friend of
Governor Blease and a lieutenant col- j
on-el on the governor's staff. j
Mr. Muldrow took offense at an article
in the Intelligencer some time
as** and went to the newspaper office
and gave Colonel Cheshire a beating
with a billet. The editor fired a cou- j |
pie of shots at Muldrow as the latter
left, but they went wild.
Muldrow was fined in police court
and bound over to the court of gen-i
eral sessions, but the grand juryfrmTi/i
