IN FATAL FIGHT
Killed at Honea Path by
Chief of Police.
A NOTED CHARACTER.
Much Excitement Followed the Shooting
and the Anderson Company Was
Ordered to the Scene.
John Marion Ashley, a cousin of Re
presentative Joshua W. Ashley of An
derson County, was shot and killed at
Honea Path last Thursday afternoon
by Chief of Police J. B. White. The
shooting took place about 5.30 in the
afternoon and Ashley lived until about
10 o'clock that night. Considerable exj
citement followed the shooting of Ash
ley and upon the request of Honea
Path citizens Governor Heyward or
dered the military company of Ander
son to proceed at once to the scene of
the disturbance. A special train was
provided for the troops and Capt. Mc
Cully with forty men arrived in Honea
Path about the time Ashley breathed
his last, making the run of eighteen
miles in twenty minutes. The troops
took immediate control of the situation
and remained in the little town until
after the inquest next day, but there
was nothing for them to do as every
thing was serenely quiet throughout
the night and the following day.
John Marion Ashley was shot twice,
one ball entering the breast and the
other the stomach. Policeman White
received a slight wound on the thumb,
the same bullet spliting his billy. Eye
witnesses state that Ashley fired first.
As he lay on the ground, mortally
wounded, Ashley tried to fire his pistol
which he clutched in both hands.
Accompanied by a number of his
friends John Marion Ashley was in
town attending the carnival. He is
said to have been drinking. During the
afternoon a negro appealed to Chief
White for protection, claiming that the
Ashleys were giving him trouble. The
officer sought the Ashley contingent
and advised Marion to get out of town
as he was drinking and becoming trou
blesome, an Ashley characteristic. This
advice was resented by Jim Bob Ash
ley, John Murion's son, who told White
that hia father would go home when he
got good und ready. Then it is said
that the officer attempted to strike or
place under arrest Jim Bob when John
Marion drew his pistol and fired into
the policeman. Instantly Chief White
pulled his gun and fired twice in rapid
John Marion Ashley was one of the
men under indictment for the lynching
last September of the negro Allen Pen
dleton. He was about fifty years old
and leaves a large family.

New Railroad From Tennessee Heading
Spartanburg, Ma:ch 12.?The South
and Western has surveyed its route
towards the coast through the coal
fields of Tennessee and Virginia, and
this survey is completed within eighteen
miles of Spartanburg.

at work. As soon as all technical
points are removed the constructson
from Marion to Spartanburg will be
entered on in dead earnest.
The fact that the road has been sur

Camden, March 7, 1906. ?A num
ber of Confederate veterans were sum
moned before the Mayor's Court this
morning to answer for not paying their

After this decision appeared the li

collect the licenses in Aiken. Those ex

ago to pay up or appear before the

Columbia, March 12. ? The outlook is
there won't be any investigation into
the financial affairs of Spartanburg
county, and the expected sensation
over the discovery of the far reaching
graft will not be forthcoming from that
direction until another Legislature
passes upon the matter. The trouble is
that the joint resolution which Senator
Carlisle of that county introduced, and
was so careful to see passed three read
ings in each House, looking to the ap
pointment by the Cover nor of "three
discreet persons," but "non-residents
of Spartanburg county," to examine
into "all of the financial affairs of said
county, as expeditiously as possible,"

Dial has been at Annapolis for almost
four years and would have graduated at
an early date but for the fact that the
authorities of the school wished him to
take his year over. He did not wish to
lose a year this way, so he is here now
and will probably get himself in shape
to take the next examination for the
pay corps which will shortly be held.

ENTAILED HEAVY LOSS
One of the Most Famous Summer Re
sorts in South Carolina Visited
by a Destructive Fire.
Sparto"burg, March 13.?The hotel
at Whit >tone Springs was totally de
stroyed by fire Sunday night, entailing
a loss of about $30,000, with partial in
surance. Some of the personal effects
of the residents of the hotel were
saved and the contents of several rooms
were taken from the burning structure.
The hotel and grounds were pur
chased three years ago by Oougan &
Sheftall, of Savannah, for about $100,
000 and the place was one of the best
known resorts in the South. It had not
opened for the season, but preparations
were daily being made for the reception
of summer tourists.
The flames were discovered about 8
o'clock and had their origin in the vi
cinity of the kitchen. The hotel is not
equipped with fire fighting apparatus
and the flames had full sway for three
hours, the reflection being plainly visi
iblo here, a distance of about six miles.
The hotel was built about six years
ago, and was one of the largest of its
kind in this section, having 120 rooms.
J. T. Harris developed the resort and
operated it for several years before
selling to Sheftall & Dougan. Many
conventions have been held there,among
them being the State Press Associa
tion the State Dentists' Association,
the last being the Tri-State Medical
Society Convention, two weeks ago.
