versation?Stackhouse Is in Horry
Tbe shooting of W. H. Abrains at
Conway, S. C, by Lanneau Staokhouse
of Marion has proved fatal. Mr.
Abrams died Thursday morning about
8 o'clock. It seems that the parties
were entire strangers and the row
Tho coroner's Inquest was held
Thursday morning and the facts were
developed that both parties were
drinking and the origin of the row a
a mere conversational dispute.
At 1.30 o'clock Friday afternoon the
jury brought the verdict "that W. H.
Abrams came to bis death by pistol
shot wounds by the hands of Lanneau
Stackhouse, intllcted on May 12, 1903."
Stackhouse is in jail and is, belong
visited by a number of his friends from

ance of frionds and the occurrence is
deeply deplored by all. i
