i DEPUTY W. M. DORROH
ARRESTS >Y. 0. STEVENSON
i Some time ago requisition papers
! were issued by Governor Manning for
I tiie arrest and return of W. 0. Steven
sen from Xe.ada upon the warrant'
sworn cut by his wife charging deser-j
ticn and non-support. The papers were i
held up and finally Governor Manning
recalled them or declined to have them
executed. Sheriff Blease had Stevenson
arrested, but of course when the!
I papers were refused by Governor Manj
ning -Stevenson was re'eased. Gov;
ernor Manning and Sheriff Blease
have had some very interesting correspondence
in regard to the case.
The case took a new turn last week
when Stevenson wired his wife, who
; lives at Little Mountain, to meet him
at Greenwood. Sheriff Blease was put
, wise and he sent Deputy Dorroh along
with Mrs. Stevenson, or pt least on the
same train. Stevenson met his wife at
Mountville and before the arrival of
the train at Greenwood Dorroh had j
nlnrpri Stevenson under arrest.
il.his was on Friday afternoon and
j'Stevenson was brought back to Newberry
by the officer. He gave bond in
the sum of $600 for his appearance at
the next term of the court.
It is supposed that the purpose Stevj
enson had in wiring his wife to meet
j him was to see if some compromise
| and settlement could not be agreed
upon. That, it .-seems, would be tae
best thing for all parties concerned.
