GENERALLT, we have no sympathy I1

simply because they are corporations.
We believe, however, they should be L

proper to prevent consolidations where b

Blrothers Try to Avene the Blood of a
The account of the attempted assasi
nation of Constable Stevenson of our
county was published in the State last p
week, .but the staff correspondent ~
wrote as if- he doubted the correctness
of the report. Constable Stevenson c
has lijen transferred to another part I
of the State in consequence of the I
following account. He was in town
several days ago and will s~o from 1,
hereito some point in the lower part o
of the State. It is not thought that si
the party who fired wanted any one
killed in the crowd but Stevenson, as
the question was asked if any of them j'
was .named Stevenson, and then ther
fir ing began..
We clip., the following from the.
Atlanta C'onstitution, and a letter re
ceived in Spartanburg last Friday
from Constable Stevenson says that i
the negro who enticed him away was 8
doubtless the emissary of the Fishers
and Durhams, and he believes it a e
conspiracy to kill him. Stevenson has b
been transferred to the lewer section g
of the state. The dispatch to the C'on- i
Columbia, S. C., September 5.-A a
special from Greenville reports thata
an attempt was made last night, pre
sumably by friends of Jsck Fisher andt
Bill Durham, the two moonshinerst
killed by constables near Spartanbnrg
several months ago, to avenge their
deaths. One of the constables who
took part in the fight and who is sup- t
posed to have killed Jaek Fisher, isa
Constable Stevenson, who is now at-r
tending court in Greenville. A brother
of Jack Fisher is also there with a
number of friends. Steven son hast
been warned that it would be well for
him to remain close in the city during a

have been devised by the friends of
be slain moonsbiners, with the purpose
t "fixing" Constable Stevenson.
A Headlight reporter saw Constable
'oland, and who was also engaged in
1e battle which resulted in the death
f Jeek Fisher and Bill Durham. Mr.
'oland said: "I believe the Fishers

Good Buggies are Made,
Our seat frames are made of white
ash, thoroughly glued together at corn
ers and a symmetrical skirt cut -n
Panels are made oval by arranging
the machine with a special rig we have
gotten up, so that when the seat is
finished it presents a convex surface,
thus causing the varnish to show to
good advantage, and giving the vehicle
a handsome appearance. seats are
thorougbly ironed to a pattern so that
they are all alike, and backs and tops
are interchangeable. The advantaue
