SILLIVVX CASE ENDS
A Great Many Witnesses Are Heard
?Hours of Argument.
Laurens, June 20.?'The last day in
the circuit court here of the case of
the state vs. josepn ^r. ommuu, u
young farmer of Sullivan township
and a member of one of the most
prominent families in the county and
State, 011 tl:e caarge of killing Col.
John M. Cannon, a leading attorney
at the Laurens bar and a citizen of
prominence and of large and influential
family connection, was resumed
this morning promptly at 9 o'clock.
The defense took up and continued
the presentation of witnesses in the
development of its plea of self-defense.
The prinpipal witnesses placed
on the stand by the defense included
Miss Katherine Sullivan, a young sister
of the defendant; C. A. Sullivan,
a brother; Mrs. Thos. J. Sullivan,
mother of Joseph G. Sullivan, and
the defendant himself. Miss Sullivan
told of the Sullivan party leaving the
room in which the trial of her brotfter,
Humbert Sullivan, had just been
concluded before Magistrate F. M.
Hellams in one of the waiting rooms
of the depot at Gray Court. She did
not see Mr. Cannon leave the room,
but, as her party filed out into the
vard. she was attracted to a conversa
tion going on between Col. Cannon
and Jesse A. Wood and heard some
of the talk. Cannon appeared to be
mad and was speaking in an angrr
tone. As she walked on. heard Canson
say. "You are a liar.'' This was
followed, according to the witness, by
Cannon savin?, "You are a liarv and

then tne snooting started. nearu .iue

"I had to do it, they were trying to |

. A. Sullivan was at the trial and !
was a witness to the alleged quarrel !
and the subsequent fatal encounter, i
% He heard the conversation between
Wood and Cannon. Heard Wood say, I
"Vftii rlid not treat mv l>ov with re- !
spect and did not treat the Sullivans j
right, did he, Joe?'' addressing the !
first complaint to Cannon and the in .luirv
to the defendant, who had stop- !
5>ed right in front of Cannon. To
this question, defendant replied in tha
negatives. Wood was taken away by
a kindsm&A and tflSA Joe,took up the,
qemplal^t, saying to Cannon that ne

JURY FAILS TO AGREE
Mistrial is Ordered in Sullivan Case.

Defendant is Released and Goes
to His Home.
Laurens, June 21.?A mistrial was
ordered this morning shortly after 8
o'clock by Judge Frank B. Gary in I
i the case of Joseph G. Sullivan, who
i was placed on trial in the court ofj
; general sessions for Laurens county j
j Friday morning, charged with the j
! murder of Col. John M. Cannon at ;
1 Gray Court, May 12. Tje jury in the |
case was discharged and the court j

j the bond this morning and the defendj
ant soon thereafter left for his home
in Sullivan township, accompanied by
his father and a brother, who remain- j
ed in the city during the night.
As stated in these dispatches last
night, the case was given to the jury
shortly before 6 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
After deliberating on the
case for some time, the jury filed back
into the court room and asked for
further explanation 011 some points at
issuo in the trial. This was given and
again the jury retired. At midnight
it was evident to the outside that a
disagreement on a verdict would be
the result, but there was no indication

About the Schools.
All pupils who failed either partly
or completely may styidv and bf
examined by the superintendent for
, promotion in September.
Prof. Hollo way, assisted by Mrs.
1 Norwood and others, who will be de
! signaled, if needed, will conduct a
short summer school at the high
; school for the benefit of pupils of an^
grade who may attend.
i Our city school system is in debt.
; Yet the schools have been run mo^t
' economically and with insufficient
f teaching force, and in spite of the fact,
that $496.07 more was collected from
private tuition than last year.
Counting the Helena teacher, we
have had two full teachers more than
I in former years, and still the system
! shanld have six more. "West End
j school needs an additional teacher.!
! Speers street school needs an add;
tional teacher. The high school
ought to have one more teacher, preferably
a man. At the Hoge colored j
school where one teacher enrolled i
169 pupils and anorher 138 there ought I
to bf1 ^vided at least two more j
teachers. The schools ought to have j
an equipment ior snop \\oxk, ihltiuuu- j
cal drawing, etc, to cost not less than 1
$1500, and a good man to direct the
work. The high school needs a larger ;
building and a larger auditorium.
Xewberrv is paying only eight mills '
for sciiools, not counting the one ;
extra mill :'or repairs which will soon !
expire. To meet the present demands '
and the outlook for the future Newberry's
school lew ought t> be at least
nine and a half mills regular tax with j
a quarter of a mill bond for improve- J
meats in buildings, repairs and equip- |
ment, making a total o* nine and j
. aT i
tnree quarters mins, jusi uiree quai - j
ters of a mill more than is being paid j
this year. I believe that this, while
a very small increase, will provide
adequately for the present needs of
the scho 'Is, and that Newberry can
have on less than ten mills a school ;
system as good as any in the State,,
while many of the cities are having to i
pay much more than that.
