Greenville, July 2?>.?J. W. Norwood,
president o:" the Norwood National
bank of this city, today announced
that he would give a reward of
000 for tiie arrest and conviction of
ii;e party or parties who assailed Dr.
K. Mcintosh in Columbia early
Mr. Norwood in making this announcement
states t'.iat his reward is
? in addition to any which .h.ave or may
be offered. Ii was .Mr. Norwood who
had the altercation with the governor
at the campaign meeting here Saturday.
At a late h ur last night the man
who shot Dr. James H. Mcintosh
early yesterday morning in front of
the iWoodrow Memorial chapel of the
First Presbyterian church on Marion
street had not been traced beyond
the corner of Bull and Pendleton
street, at which point the dogs from
the penitentiary lost he scent. Here,
it is believed, the assailant entered
a waiting automobile and was whisked
away in the darkness.
Mrs. C. Y. Reamer, whose home,
1507 Pendleton street, is just two doors
from the corner of Rull and Pendleton,
said yesterday that she hapened
to be awake at the time of the shooting.
A few minutes before she heard
the first shot, Mrs. Reamer said, a machine
drew ud at the corner. The en
Sine continued to run, she said, making
considerable noise as if in had
condition. A man laughed. This was
the only voice she heard, she said.
Then she heard tie shot. A few more
minutes passed; and the machine left
the corner just before the city hall
clock struck 2 o'clock.
A dispatch 'from Greenville said that
J. W. Norwood, president ?of the Nor
wood National bank of tnat cit>y, tne
man who engaged ia a verbal clash
with the governor at the campaign
meeting there last week, had offered
a reward cf $5,000 for the arrest and
conviction of the person or persons
guilty of the attack upon Dr. Mcintosh.
Joseph Norwood, president of
the Union National bank of Colum
bia, yesterday offered $10 as the nucleus
of a sum to be subscribed and
offered as a reward for tte capture
of the guilty party or parlies.
Wound >'ot Serions.
The surgeon attending Dr. iMcIntosh
said yesterday that lie did not
consider the wound serious. Accord
ing to the surgeon Dr. Mcintosn win
be able to leave the infirmary in a day
or so. Tlie pistol ball, fired at close
range, entered the doctor's right side
just below the ribs, furrowed through
the abdominal wall for about seven
inches and came out.
v It was said at the hospital yesterIi
day that the injured man was restW
ing well. He slept yesterday afternoon.
He will probably receive the
newspaper men today, it was saia, auu
make a statement.
W. C. Cathcart, chief of the police
k department had a brief talk with Dr,
Mcintosh during the morning. The
m latter could give little or no additional
V information, it was learned, as to w'ac
+V10 man was that made the attack
W Dr. Mcintosh had already described
W his assailant as a man of small physique,
weighing about 125 pounds,
wearing a cloth cap and dark shirt
and evidently wearing soft soled ox
rub-ber heeled shoes inasmuch as li
made no noise when he ran.

on tie case, however, though there
was no clue to follow as yet.

that t':e sheriff's office hac

Sheriff McCain was in Charleston yesterday.
He is expected to returr

there was nothing that could be don*

Dr. Robert A. Lancaster and J. R
Shepnerd, who with B. F. Auman
were the first to reach Dr. Mclntosl
after the shooting, said yesterday thai
there was nothing material that the]
could add to the story in The Statf
yesterday morning. Mr. Shepherd anc
Mr. Auman have rooms at the hom(
