CHIEF OF POLICE WHITLOCK
FATALLY SHOOTS FORMER
STATE ?ETECTIVE C:
KNOWLEDGE OF IT
Says Someone Struck Him in
Head With Axe Handle and
He Drew His Pistol and
Charles \V. Robertson, formerly a
State detective- tinder Governor Mease,
wuh shot and instantly killed lute yes
terday afternoon at Pendleton by
Chief of Police tf. IT. Whitlock of thut
place. Causes underlying the tragedy
were not revealed lust night, and, It
was authoritatively stuted, if these are
not shown today ut the inquest
it Is probable that tho trial of the cubc
will bring to light snrao interesting
Whitlock was..brought to Anderson
last night by Sheriff Ashley and lodg
ed In the county .lall. Interviewed up
on his arrival by a representative of
The Intelligencer, lie, stated that he
knew nothing as to events
immediately preceding the kill
ing, and did not know that
ho had shot Robertson until ad
! vised so by the physicians who dross
Iod severe wounds which had been in
! Meted on his head with a bludgeon of
some description. "I was standing in
Campbell's store," said Whitlock,
"when someone npprouched mo from
behind und struck mo a terrific blow
in tho hack of tho head with un are
handle I do not remember firing uy
ou anyone, uivd did not know what had
taken placo until I was told by Doc
tors Watkins and Day, who dressed my
wounds." , ?. :
'Several questions wore put to the
prisoner by Tho Intolligencer report
or, but all that could be had from
him was that he knew nothing what
had happened. When asked if ho had
seen Robertson at any time during the
day provious to tho 'difficulty' in the
store, Whitlock replied that he didn't
know, that he might have seen him
for all ho knew. Sheriff Ashloy had
oo little- time at Pendleton that he
did not make an investigation of the
case, but returned immediately upon
the first train with the prisoner. It
is understood that a jury of inquest
was impanelled h-.si. night for the pur
pose of viewing the body in order
that It might be removed to the the
home. The coroner . will go up te
Pendleton this morning and conduct
the usual Investigation.
It was learned from reliable source
that Whitlock aud^Robertson had not
been on the best of terms for Home
time, and. it is thought that bad blood
was probably at the bottom of tho
tragedy. As to circumstances lead
ing up to the killing, however, noth
ing could be learned. As stated, the
sheriff did not have time to make an
investigation of the affair; and tele
phone communication with Pendletou
last night could not be had.
Up until something like a year ago,
it Is stated, Robertson held a com
mission as a State detective Under
Governor Mease. For some tlmo ho
worked at Chesterfield with ?herlff D.
P. Douglass. Since tho election of Mr.
Manning as governor. It Is under
stood, Robertson had been seeking re
appointment. The dead man. was
some 40 years of ago and was born

that he had been chief of police at
Pendleton for 11 years. That he had
been dealtii a terrific blow In the
j head with a club or stick, wau evident
from the spectacle which he pre
sented when brought to the county
juil lust night. His entire head was
encased in heavy bandage and his col
lar and shirt drenched with blood. He
exhibited several severe bruises on
his left arm, which appeared to be
so sore that he could not bear touch
Though direct information relative
' to the homicide could not be had last
night, it was learned from sources
considered reliable that Whitlock
emptied the cbntents of a Smith and
Wesson special 6-Bhootcr pistol at
Robcrtron, but that only one bullet
took effect, thin striking the latter
just above his left hip. Robertson is
said to have walked the length of the
store bef. re he fell and expired.
The shooting took place at 5:40
o'clock. Immediately upon receipt
of notice of the affair, Sheriff Ashley
left for Pendleton,'going on the C
o'clock train. He returned to the city

FACULTY .OF; .FRAZER
WORK GOING ON
Financial Conditions Alone Re
sponsible for Change Say
The board of trustees of the Frazer
Fitting School announced ye3terday
that Professor A. R. Bunks has with
drawn from the faculty of the institu
tion and that the work has been dis
tributed so an to care for all of the
classes. Professor Danks has been
conversant with every movement ?f I
the institution since hla connection
with it in September. It was evident
soon after the opening of, the insti
tution that the expenses would be In
excess of the receipts. It' is the set
tled policy of the institution to keep
clean of anything like a' large Indebt
edness. When, the real situation was
confronted Professor Banks very gen
erously offered to withdraw from the
institution, inasmuch' ns -he was the
most recent addition to the faculty,
and inasmuch as hin ties to Ander
son were not so binding,' as those of j
other members of the faculty. The
whole matter has been most satisfac
torily arranged and Professor Banks
in leaving the institution of his own
accord has tho highest esteem of the
faculty and members of tho board of j
trustees, and they are likewise es
teemed by him. The services render
ed by Professor Banks were most
satisfactory and but for the great fi
nancial stress caused by the war in
Europe there would have never been
any thought of such a change in the
plan? of the institution.
Professor Banks goe3 to Columbia,
his former home, while the work of |
the institution here goes on under th?
direction of the other members of the
faculty. Dr. Frazer has asked the
board of trustees to relieve him of
any further'responsibility for the dis
cipline and the finances of the insti
tution. He will remain as the head
master and professor of Bible.
The institution has done remarka
bly fine work and it is so arranged
ua to carry on tho work in the future
without any lowering of the standard
Bet by the former achievements of tho
Professor Hanks has been most
pleasantly associated with the various
interests-of the city and leaves with
the deepest regrets. He has found
large place In the hearts of the peo
ple and he Has" been most pleasantly
associated in every way. He carries
with him the love, and respect of the
large circle of friends. Including
every student who has been under his
instruction during his services to the
institution. He hod learned to say
from the very bottom, of his heart
.'JAnderson'le iny:town" and he feels
very keenly The rending of the. ties
that have been so pleasantly formed.
