Last Saturday morning Policeman Hug

was stolen. Later in the day Messrs J W
Huggins and J A Alsbrook brought to town
a mnuie that answered the description, an d
which they had :'und loose in their field
early in the morning, and in the road they
found a buggy w:th harness. Evidently
when the thieves reached that point they
stripped the mule and turned him loose.
It is supposed that Bill Dixon and his con
federates brought the mule and buggy, as
the buggy was found not far fro'm where
these "escapes" were seen. A party came
from Sumnter, identified the property ad
took it home. 'rhe mule belonged to Capt.
Charlie Williamson, the buggy to one
neighbor and the harness to another.

A Good Citizen at Rest.
About the time we bad our forms locked
up last week to go to press, the shocking
news oi the tragic death of Dr. I. B. Lor
Yea ieached us and particulars were not
obtainable, not even the grief-stricken
fatilly knew, we therefore were unable to
give our readers any more than the sub
stance of the telegram.
Last Thursday the family, accompanied
by the Knight of Pvtbias of which the de
ceased was a prominent member and a
number of friends, went to Sumter to at
tend the funeral of this lamented young
man, and from what we could gather from
those who had talked with Mr. J. E. Bar
nett, a brother-in-law, and who was one of
the patty of which Dr. Lorvca was a uc-ea
ber, the circumstances were about as fol
On Tuesday morning, August 22, about
10 o'clock Dr. Loryea left his friendsat the
Skyuka hotel, a hostelry situated in the
mountains about eight miles from Tryon,
N. C., to go out sight-seeing and was to be
back for dinner. The heat was iatense and
when the deceased failed to return at the
expected time, the matter was reported to
the hotel office and some one was sent out
in search of him, without result. This
caused alarm, and a searching party went
out: they, too, failed to find h:m, iut they
met people who bad seen him and heard
him inquiring the way to the hotel. It was
learned that about midday Dr. Loryea
went to a house occupied by two old wo
men, and from them he obtained permis
sion to rest on their piazza, he complain
ing of feeling unwell, and after resting for
some time he rose, saying that he felt bet
ter, and after thanking the people, asked
to be directed to his hotel. The women
direted him and after he had been gone
some time, one of them went to a spring
near by and discovered the body lying
near the spring and his handkerchief hang
ing over into the spring. She at once
staited to give the alarm, when on her way
she overtook a wagon going in the direc
ion of the hotel, and she told the driver
who promised to notify the people at the
It was between 8 and 9 o'clock when the
body was found and gotten back to the ho
tel and the proprietor accompanied the re
mains to Sumter. The supposition is, that
he, being nearsighted, lost his way, and
the rambling about over the hills in the
intense heat was overcome, and when he
reached the spring drank freely of the cold
water which brought on something like.

how this young man lost his life.
Reuben B3. Loryea was born in Charles
ton in 1865, attended the public schools of
that city, and after moving to Manning
with his parents, entered the drug store of
Din~ns & Co., as an apprentice. lie was
a diligent student and faithful clerk, hav

employers that when one of the firm with

was taken in as a partner. He finished his
studies at the Charleston Medical College
and became one of the most expeit phar

high among his profession; although a

and by his close attention he built
up a very pretty business which
stands among the best in the financial
world. As a citizen Manning met with a
severe loss in his death, intelligent and
social, public spirited, in fact his qualities
were worthy of imitation. Dr. Loryea,
was a strict religionist; he endeavored to
live up to the faith of his fathers, and at
he same time he was broad in his views
towards other creeds. He will long be

Alsbrook, John Haggins and Pat McLeod
went over the swamip. near to the place in
dicated by the boy after dark to do patrol
work, and while they were at their stations
Constable S. T. Tobias came up and joined
them. The pairty raided a house and saw
s.igns where people Lad been; they con
tinued thir watch until about daylight.
Several times during the early hours of the
morning Mr. Tobias decided to go hom.,
compl aing of headache, but he was per
suaded to remain longer, and a little before
4o'clock Mr. McLeod rode home to go to
Jordan for the d:gs; not long after that Mr.
Tobias determined to leave, and before do
ing so, cautioned Alsbrook and luggins
if they run up on Dixon and his "pals."
not to shoot if they could possible avoid it,
but if they had to shoot, to cripple them
not kill them. le then went on down the
railroad track and reached the third trestle
from Manning, when he met some people
with boxes and bundles. le ordered
them to halt and he was shot at twice and
then knocked down. Tobias in some un
accountable way, although desperately
wounded, raaniaged to get on to Manning
until lie reached W. S. Harvin's ofice,
where he lay down on the porch, and was
found by the watchman, who awoke people
and sent them for a doctor. When Dr. Brown
reached him he had lost a great deal of
blood; on examination the right side of
the head showed that the skull was crushed
as if with somei heavy,dull instrument, and
people differ whether the wound was from
a gun shot or a ritle barrel. When Mr.
Tobias was reached he was very weak but
conscious and he told those about him that
he "met two men, ordered them to halt,
they shot me twice, and hit me."
Early Sunday morning the news of the
occurrence reached Sheriff Bradham and
he immediately went to the telegraph of
fice to try if possible to get hounds from
some quarter. At the same time he put
men out on horseback to summons peoele
to aid him in the capture of the despers
does. A guard was placed at the trestle
where Mr. Tobias was struck down to keep
people from obliterating the tracks, and in
the course of a few hours a large number
of armed men gathered at the depot. The
sheriff not being able to get dogs, divided
the men out in squads, and on the arrival
of dogs from Jordan they went on for
the search. A heavy rain had set in and this
operated against the searching party, but
the dogs when they were put on the trail,
ran on and found a valise with shoe- and
other articles that had been stolen from the
depot the night before. The house of Mr.
W. G. King had also be-n entered on Sat
urday night and among the articles taken
was a pair or shoes belonging to Mr. King
and a bottle of malt whicfl Mr. King had
for his sick father-in-law. The malt bottle
was found on the railroad track, and down
the embankment by a log is where the can
ned goods had been eaten, evidently by the
parties that struck Mr. Tobias.
On the trestle where Mr. Tobias had his
desperate encounter tbe ties were clotted
with blood, and on the track blood was also
found, as if' the Lead had lain there. It is
thought that after ho was struck, the
demons dragged the body around and
placed the Lead on the track to be mangled
by a passing train.
The depot was entered by tearing away
some slats near the roof', and froni it was
taken a lot of' groceries, a box of "Long
Run" tobacco, some bottles of Lithia water
and sample shoes, these belonging to Mr.
Ri. M. Strange. Some of the shoes and
parts of the tobacco box and tags were
All day Sunday and Monday the town
was in commotion. Parties armed and
ready for duty came in both days. at the
same time there was no boisterousness.
Every man was anxious to capture the des
perate characters at large.
On Monday morning Mr. Tobias became
sulciently conscious to recognize some of
his friends. A large crowd of the wounded
man's friends came to town and Sheriff
Bradham, although sick from exposure
in the rain the day before, busied him
self with calming them and organizing
There is a diversity of opinion as to
whether Mr. Tobias was shot or struck;
even the attending physician does not
seem able to tell, but at about the time To
bias was stricken, two shots were heard
from that direction by Policeman Hug
gins, on duty in Manning, and also by
Messrs. Huggins and Alsbroom, whom the
unfortunate man had only left a few min
utes before over the swamp. They say they
heard two shots, to which they replied, by
firing shots also.
