J*hn Feldfr is Slain by .Mob Near Nornay
Alter Keiiiur Arrested on l
Charge of Obtaining .Money S
I'nder False Pretenses. g
Norway, Dec. 21.?In jail on the v
charge of obtaining money under false v
pretenses, John Felder, a negro, was j
taken frotii the guardhouse here last)
night and slain at a spot about twoit
miles frcm this town. The negro was 1 ?
shot in the- head several times and t,
broken pieces of a revolver butt indi - j r
cate that he was severely beaten about i
the head. Xo motive has been as-' j
signed for the killing of the negro. It ^
is certai.i that the charge under which i
he was incarcerated did not figure, for ,
that had been settled or was on the .
eve of being disposed of.
The negro was arres-ted Friday by i
Magistrate Tyler on a warrant sworn J
out by J. R. Leyseth, of North. The;
negro had contracted to work on the i ^
farm of S. D. M. Guess and son at; (
Denmark for th^ next year and Mr.?
Leyseth, learning this, communicated',
with the Messrs. Gue-:s. They agreed ! (
to reimburse Mr. Leysath. During the
early evening two sons of the negro
came to the Messrs. Gue^s and urged
them to ;peed in securing-the release, ^
of their father as they feared that1
harm would come to him if he had to j
remain in the Norway guardhouse over |
The events of the night showed that ,
their fears were well founded. Some t
time between sunset and sunrise a party
of men broke in the guardhouse and t
secured the negro. He was taken some j
two miles from the city, wnere nis j ,
hands were tied before him and his':
body was riddled with, bullets. Either j1
before or after the shooting the victim j
was horribly beaten about the head:,
with the ,butt end of revolvers. 11
A large bla?k dog was found guard- j (
ing the body of the slain negro this j \
morning. The animal did not belong' f
to the negro nor can any one be found j f
who can name the owner of the sym- j 3
pathetic canine. j v
The motive for the killing or thej I
negro is a mystery. It is conceded by | ?
all that the killing did not result from t
the Leyseth arrest as this -was amicably
settled in the early evening. It is
eaid that a few days ago the. negro
and a white man engaged in an1 alter- ^
cation in which the negro drew a re- j
volver and used some ugly threats but j
the story is not confirmed, nor cam
the name of the white man involved 1
toe ascertained. j ^
A coroners jury was secured and r
an inquest instituted but for lack of j '
witnesses it was necessarily postponed ^
until Tuesday. The hearing will be 3
resumed at that time. Sheriff Salley c
came to Norway from Orangeburg this | s
afternoon and spent some time in an j
investigation before returning to the |e
county sent. A significant clue is me *
fact that evidence of only two buggy A
tracks can be found leading from the i
jail and the "mob" must have been a: t
small one to use but two conveyances, j ^

"Scattering announcements will be

Mr. Wilson indicated he would not

he added, "is to see the field of choice

possible that are worth while." c
