Hardy Walton Killed.
Tuesday evening, about
dark, a most unfortunate and
deplorable affair occurred at
Opha, in the 18th district,
resulting in the death of a
harmless, inoffensive and
highly respected citizen.
irom the best information
we have been able to obtain,
the circumstances are as fol
lows: It seems for some
time past an old grudge has
existed between Taylor
Chandler and Hardy Walton.
On the evening above men
tion, Walton rode to the
postoffice for his mail. Tay
lor Chandler and .his son,
Lee'Chandler, who had been
at work near bv, also went
to the office. After receiv
ing his mail and buying a
bottle of snuff, Walton
mounted his horse and start
ed home, when a dispute
arose between he and Taylor
Chandler, and a difficulty
occurred. About this time,
Lee Chandler appeared upon
ihe scene, and with a piece
of plank dealt Walton two
powerful blows upon the
head, jrtie Chandlers soon
left and Walton went into
the house of Francis Hoop
er. It was discovered that
his wounds were dangerous
and a physician was sum
moned. Dr. G. M. Dorris ar
rived about 2 o'clock, but
could give no relief, and
about 4 o'clock Walton died.
Taylor Chandler was
brought to Bolivar Wednes
day and confined in jail. Lee
Chandler is still at large,
