Another epiBode in the race rioting
last December at-Fair Play, when
three negroes were killed and several
severely beaten and otherwise injured,
was recorded yesterday morning,
when Sheriff John*Davis of Oconee
County, placed three white men of
that section under arrest and carried
them to Jail at Walhalla, making six
men who now face charges of mur
der as a result of this trouble.
The men placed under arrest yes
terday are Gub Jones,. Will Kay and
John McDonald. It is understood
that they have waived the right of
preliminary hearing and will Immedi
ately make efforts to procure .their
liberty oh bail. . The men were un
able to get bail last night and spent
the night in Oconee County Jail, It is
At the 'same time Sheriff Davis ar
rested these three men he took Into
custody a negro man < nssed Alonzo
Anderson, who is wanted as a mater
ial witness in the cases Which have
been brought against these men. The
negro was placed in Jail at Walhalla,
where he will be held until the con
vening of court next Monday, when
these men will be placed on trial.

Several days after the riot at Fair
Play Sheriff Davis placed three men
under arrest, these .being, William C.
McClure, Calvin C. Kay and Woodrow
Campbeil. These men were present
ed by a coroner's Jury for murder, it
being alleged that they caused the
death of a negro named Green Gib
son, on December 20.
On January 11 Die men were given
a preliminary hearing before a mag
istrate at Walhalla,.and remanded to
Jail. A few days after that they were
admitted 'to ball in the sum tot $5,000

It will! be recalled that John Mc
Donald was wounded in the eye dur
ing the riot. Ho made several trips
to Anderson to receive treatment at
the hands of a specialist. '
The name of Will. Kay,,.was .alBo
mentioned in connection with the
trouble, but why he and McDonald

We were disappointed In the con
gregation for we thought there had
been so many Sundays this winter
that the people could not assemble
together at the house of God, that the
whole church would be there; but
the congregation was small. I think
we are tried In many ways to see if |
our faith is strong. God in his mys
terious ways will keep ub from I
church, then give us an opportunity |
to see if we will go, then if we fail
to go, I believe many times he sends J
things on ub so we "can't go. I would
like to hear someone else speak on
that subject. ,
Mr. B. L. Mitchell and wife worship,

see them again. He has been our
leader in music for many years, but
lias moved to Anderson, and we miss
him and hlB family very much. We
appreciated him very much Indeed. He
has done a good work at Hopewell and
has been v.ery faithful, and we hope]
he will take up work In his new home '
and work as faithful as he did for ub.

Mr. Jas. White, who has been sick
many weeks with side plurlsy. Is im
proving very slowly, is able, to Bit
on the porch In the sunshine in good
weather. We miss him at .church very
much indeed. His plac? waa never
vacant only when sickness of the fam.
ily kept him away. He has been a
faithful deacon and Sunday school
teacher for many years, and when
we are UBed to seeing one present all
the time, evea if they take no active
part, their absence makes a great va
cancy, but such men aa Mr. White,
their places can't be filled. If we
had more such men the world would
be much better. I never heard Mr.
White pray without asking God's
blesBlng on the sick. He was always
thoughtful of them and prayed for
Mrs. Stringer has also been sick
for several weeks or months rather,
but is some better. ( We hope she .will
get able f to worship with ub again,
even if flhe is in the eighties. She is
a faithful mother of Israel. A sweeter
Christian character we have never
known, .'even after she has suffered
these many weeks, not a murmur did
we hear from her lips about it, but
h?r faco shone with angelic bright
ness, ii is sweet to see that in afflic
tion. , ].
Mr. Jno. Thompson, who has been
sick so long and was operated oh in
Augusta, for -gastric ulcer, has never j
regained himself from the operation
yet. The Operation relieved the in-1
digestion; He can eat as he has not j
been able to do In many years, butj
don't improve much.

many people, are waking up to the
labt .that musicians can be made as
well as born. Fifty years ago most
people thought it a child didn't have
a talent for music, it was useless to
try to teach them music. People
have changed their minds now, for
children have learned to play Well;
also sing well by training, and I think
it la the duty 0f all parents to do their
duty as far as they are.able to^gtve
child a musical education. Many
times we find a hidden talent that

VERY CLEVER TRICK
ONE ROBBED PLACE WHILE
THE OTHER CALLED PRO
PRIETOR TO PHONE
JUNK MAN VICTIM
Summoned to Distant Telephone
and Returned to Find Office
Whereas thieves operating in the
city recently have heen bold, they
have no* resorted to strategy; and a
splendid illustration of their expert
ne3B in this latter quality wa3 fur
nished yesterday about noon when
Sam Dlshner. who operates a Junk
Bhop on North Main Btreet, was re
lieved of a quantity of brass, copper,
etc.. which he claims was worth $35.
The method the thief or thieves?
for the Job was undoubtedly the work
of at least two persons?employed Is
one of the BhrewdCBt that has been
used about here in quite a while, the
police assert. And yet the plan is so
simple, they say', that almost anyone
would fall for it.
Going back to the beginning, Sam
DiBbner notified the police about noon
yesterday tbat his place of business
had been entered while he was out
of tho otfice and a considerable quan
tity of brasfi, coppor and other Junk
Btolen. Officers responded to the call
and mode an inspection of Dishner'a
place, which is the old Stacy Oaborne
livery stable. Just across Manning
street from the oil mill.
Dlshner told the police that a ne
gro from the oil'mill came down to j
his place and told him that someone
wished to apeak to h<m over the tele-1
phone. Dishner worn. X> answer the
telephone, call and left his plate ot
business open. While he was gone
someone entered the place and made
atway with a considerable quantity
of stuff, which Dlshner d?clar?e was
The police believe that the t?l?
phon? call was a fake, for when Dlsh
ner got to the 'phone the party who
called him had gene. The officers
are of the opinion that the person
who called Dishner over the telephone
cooperated with a partner, the latter
entering the junk shop Just at the
time Dishner was called out to ans
wer the telephone.
As yet no arrests have'been made
in the case. The officers believe that
they know the guilty party or parUes,
and state that they will have some
one under arrest shortly.
