VICTIM OF UNKNOWN
DEATH CAME 12:40
AT THE HOSPITAL
Sheriff Has Two Suspects Under
Arrest But ?vidence Against
Them is Very Weak.
Thomas M. Dodd, aged follower of
I .oe and Jackson through thc valley
of tho shadow of do'tth. and victim of
.i dastardly and mysterious assault
lalo Saturday afternoon in the little
grocery shop on Eait Hampton street,
where he calmly awaited the Kunset of
life amid Iii- humble surroundings,
succumbed to his Injuries at 12:40
o'clock 'this morning at the Anderson
County Hospital, where he lay In a
stupor from the time he was operat
ed upon Saturday afternoon in an
?(fort to save his life.
Mr. Dodd way In an unconscious
state when discovered lying in the
floor of his Htore. and remained in this
condition until he dlod thin morning.
He wus at no time ablo to speuk or
.zlvo any ono any word of descrip
tion of his assailant. .
Thc aged man was 77 year3 of agc
cn Sunday, the day after he was as
saulted. He wus struck some four
times over the head with a brick.
Ile waB struck once over either eye.
once ove rthe left ear and once in
the back of tho head. His skull was
fearfully broken by the blows, and lt
is considered ; emarkable that he
lasted as long as ho did.
No Funeral Pinns.
At the time The Intelligencer went
to press this morning no plans for
Mr. Dodd's. funoral had been made. It
is supposed that those matters will
be arranged tome limo this morning.
, The crime is one of tho most das
tardly that ha 4 been committed in the
city since Duvid I lotto, another aged
man, war mysteriously, killed under
similar circumstances hore several
yours ago. No one was ever convict
ed of Hutt.)'.; Death.
'?wo Suspects Held.
As a result of rigid investigations
into the murder of Mr. Dodd, Sheriff
Ashley and Deputy Sheriff Sanders
have lodged In tho county Jail two
negroes who arc suspocted of either
being implicated in the crime or of
knowing mn c about it than they have
ns yet told. Those negroes are Wil
llo Chapman, aged li) years, and P. L.
Hu rr ls?, aged ?ft years. The evidence
against these tw*> is rather weak, 'or
at leusi lt hos that appearance now.

Willie Chapman was placed under
irrest Sui.dav morning, ho-being ap
prehended in the vicinity of the Gluck
Mille. His arrest followed on the heels
of a statoment, said to have been made
by negro girls, to the effect that they
saw Chapman near the intersection
of Hampton and McDuffle streets be
tween ? and 6 o'clock Saturday after
noon, which ls supposed to be about
tho hour Mr. Dodd vas assaulted.
Tell Conflicting Stories.
Chapman denies that he was In that
vicinity Saturday afternoon, but did
not como any farther up the street
than the Cromer concrete store build
ing, which sits about two blocks
south ot the Intersection of Hampton
Streets with McDuffio street. Chapman
has told a number of conflicting
stories. Some of thea? stories the
officers have Investigated, with the
result that thev were found to be
without foundation In fact. Because
of the report that Chapman was seen
'.n tho vicinity of Hampton. and Mc
Duffle streets and because of the con
flicting stories he tells the officers
believe that be knows something about
the case. ' Chapman is said to be a
coal passer at the Cluck Mills.
P. L. Barr?as Arrested.
P. lt. Burrlss was arrested Sunday
by Captain Bell ot the city police
force, but was turner1, loose after the
officer had satisfied himself that the
negro knew nothing about the mat
ter. ' Monday afternoon Sheriff Aahley
re-arrested the negro and placed him
In the county Jail.
' Murrias works in the linter room
of the People's Oil and Fertilizer
Company's oil mill, and lives near
Cleveland avenue. Hurries wap ar
rested on the strength of conflicting
stories which he baa told. A negro
named Joe Clark, who also worka at
the oil mill, states that ho heard Mur
rias say he saw Mr. Dodd when h
fell "n the floor of his atore. Joe
Clark told another negro. Artls
Mrown. and this negro told Mr. Levi
N. Geer, the manager bf the mill.
Upon..being placed under arrest

said that his statement about the af
fair was misconstrued. He says that
he saw Mr. Dodd Disced In an auto
mobile, after he was injured, and
drl<J?n away to the hospital. He de
nies having told anyone that he saw
Mr. Dodd fall.
If? Further Arrests.
