R. L. Irby After Being Fatally Wounded
Shoots His Slayer?Nr. Irby
A startling' tragedy was enacted at
Fastover, Rlchlacd county, about
twenty miles from Columbia, late Wed
nesday evening when two diHponsary
constubld8, R. Lyles Irby of Laurena
and S. A. Phillips ofUicbland, ebotand
killed each other. The nows of the
terrible affair re.iohed Laurens ab ut
11 o'clock Wednesday night.
Mr. Irby's body was biought here
Thursday and on Friday morning the
interment took place at the city ceme
tery, the burial services being con
ducted by the members of Laurens
Lodge, No. 43, K. of P.
Accordlog to accounts tho
the fatal shooting was the result of
a quarrel between Irby and Phillips
about tho former's overcoat. The two
men had drlvea toEastoverin a buggy.
Irby left the buggy to vioit a store for
the purpose of making an inspection
He left his overcoat In the buggy with
Phillips who drove off down the s'reet.
As he was driving the c^at fell out in
the street. Phillips soou returned and
Irby came out and said thero was no
wh'skey to be found and proposed that
they go back to Columbia.
Irby got in the buggy and they drove
off in the direction of Columbia After
they had gone a negro entered the store
with an overcoat. The proprietor
said he knew whose coat it was and
took it in obarge. Present/y Irby and
Phil'ips drove back to this store. As
they cime up Mr. Karsee, the pro
prietor, asked them If they had lost an
overcoat and Irby answered, ''Yes,
that's my ovo coat."
Pblllli s jump d out of the buggy
and said to Irby, "'Now, you've got
your coit. Thal will provo I did not
steal you- coat. You havo got to give me
satisfaction for saying that I did steal
"I did not say you s'ole my coat.. I
left It In your keeping. You ought to
have known something about it. Come
let's go back to Columbia. There Is
"No I am not going before I get sat
isfaction. You said I stolo jour over
coat and I am not going uutb I pet
eatlsfuc Ion" replied Phi Iii; s.
Seeing that (here was to b^ troublo
Mr- Karsee. took hold of Pliillips and
told him to get in the buggy. He did
so and the men drove over to another
store. Phillips got out and entered
the store. He told McKenzie the pro
prlotor, that Irby had Insulted blm and
that he w is not golog b ck in the
buggy with him. The two nun then
wont out to the buggy and Phillips told
Irby that he would not return with
him. Irby insisted. Finally he caught
Phillips In the c >!l.w and told him he
had to go, at the same timo slapping
M'Keczle got between iho men and
proposed that one go in the buggy ard
the other return on the train. Irby
again caught Phillips* in the collar,
saying he must go with him. At this
jut-cure Phi lips drew his pistol and
shot Irv y and was running away when
Irby pulled his revolver and fired sev
eral t'me* at Phillip?. Phillips full
dea?, shot through the back. Irby
walked about a little, then went in the
store, where he sat down in a chair.
He lived about twenty minutes, dying
in the chair.
Those who knew Mr. Irby believe his
purpose in insisting on Phillips return
ing to C< lumbia with him was to pro
tect a fellow officer and favo him pos
sibly from a reprimand from his super
iors. If he left him the matter would
have to be exp'ained, and doubtless
Irby wanted to avoid this on r ccount of
