SAD TRAGEDY .
PATE WALKER WAS KILLED
DY DAN HAMER..
Walker Was Visiting Young Lady
and Refused to Leave as
Ordered by Hamer.
Tho Dillon Herald says:
j Another chapter was added to
Marion county's murder record
Saturday night. Tho slayer was.
Dan Hamer, a young man about
23 years of age, tho son,of Mr Jno
B Hamer, of Dillon. The dead
man is lftitQ. Walker, tho young 20
year old son of Mr T J Walker,
tho well-known shingle manufac
turer who lives just ai ross the
river. Tho scene of tho tragedy
was at J E Creech's homo on
Marion Wiggins' plantation about
tinco hundred yards beyond Dillon
Bridge. Creech and his family
formerly lived at Dillon and were
operatives in tho Dillon Mill.
From the testimony at tho cor
oner's inquest it is certain that
Hamer was drinking. Ho bears
the reputation of a lighter when
sober and when under the inlluence
of whiskey it is said he is danger
ous, feoveral years ago ho slashed
the back of a companion's coat with
a long knife. At another tinto he
cuta terrible gash in the throat of
a man named Miles who worked
for F M Huggins. Last year
while out with a party of young
mon on;. Saturday niuht he shot one '<
of tho party tn the abdomen, '/fbi?'
bullet dellected, went around tho
body and came out ut the back. .
If the bullet had gono straight the
wound would havo proved fatal.
It was claimed that this shooting
Saturday night Hamer went
homo with Creech. They stopped
along tho way and took several
drinks of alcohol. vVhen they
arrived at Creech's homo they
found one of the daughters en
gaged in conversation with young
Bate Walker. This seemed to en
rage Hamer and he intimated to
Walker that it was about time for
him to leave. When Walker re
plied that he would leave when ho
got ready Hamer delivered a blow
upon his cheek that knocked him
ott' the steps. Walker rose and
started at Hamer, when Hmner
li red and instantled killed Walker.
The ball passed through his body.
The victim of tho tragedy, Tato
Walker, was a quiet, inoffensive
young man and a cripple. He
worked for his father and made
daily trips to Dillon hauling shin
The young man's slayer is stil at
large. After tke shooting ho came
in tho direction of Dillon and when
a few hundred yards from tho
scene of the tragedy he seemed to
disappear as suddenly as if tho
earth had opened and swallowed
him. It is the theory of some that
he is hiding in tho river swamp,
while others think ho escaped on
tho 3.36 southbound train and is
in Florida. _.
Hains havo been quite partial
this summer, north of town to the
old burnt factory is quito dry, but
from there to Newtonville good
seasons have prevailed, and above
there beyond Gibson it has boon
rory dry, and crops have suffered.
Died-Tho little son of Hob
Hogers Jr., near Blenheim, was
buried last Friday afternoon at
Parnassus. The child was nearly
ono year of age?.
Thos A Huckabeo and wife, of
Smyrna, weni to Charleston Satur
day, and spent Sunday on tho Isle
of Palms, returning homo Monday.
