Into Custody for Fighting His Wife
at Atlantic Coast Line Station
Charges of Disorderly Conduct and
Carrying Concealed Weapons Dock
eted Against Him.
Rev. R. T. Belvin, of Walhalla, a
member of the upper South Carolina
Conference, Methodist Episcopal
Church, South, was arrested by. the
city police at the Atlantic Coast Line
station at 11 o'clock this morning, the
charge against him being disorderly
conduct (engaging in a fight with his
wife) and carrying concealed weap
ons, to-wit, a pistol of unlawful size.
He was taken to the police station, his
gun confiscated, and he was placed
under bond for appearance for trial on
But this is not all of the story, nor
the beginning of the row that culmi
nated in a free fight at the station for
the posession of their 2-year-old
child, during which Mrs. Belvin was
knocked down and rendered uncon
scious for several minutes. While
the fight was in progress the station
agent telephoned for the police, but
before they arrived the fight was
ended by Mrs. Belvin being knocked
down and Rev. Mr. Belvin started to
board the train for Columbia that
canie 'into the station just then. In
the excitement occasioned by the un
usuel spectacle of a man and a woman
fighting, a crowd gathered and as
some of them seemed to block the
way to the train, Rev. Belvin drew
from his pocket a pistol of large size
andl business-like appearance and or
dered the crowd to clear the road
and the road was' promptly .cleared.
But the police arrived on the scene
just then and Rev. Belvin was taken
.But this is not all of the story. It
seems that Rev, and Mrs. Belvin
have had some dlifferences and could
not' live together in peace andl amity,
so Mrs. Belvin taking thei rtwo-year
01ld child left her husband's home at
Walhalla and esime to stay with her
sister who lives in the country near
this city. This morning Rev. Belvin
arrived at the home of his wife's sis
ter. - He walked in and took the child
in his arms, got into the automobile
and came to this city. His wife fol
lowed quickly and as soon as she
reached tbown applied to Magistrate
Moore for a warrant for Rev. Belvin'sj

After Rev. Belvin had made his

Mrs. Belvin has employed D. D.
Moise to. represent her interests and
to take action to regain possession of
the child, which Rev. Belvin will not
give up. Mr. Moise has gone to Man
ning to appear before Judge Wilson in
habeas corpus proceedings to secure
possession of the child. Rev. Belvin
has retained J. H. Clifton to repre
