The little store room of It. Lee Hun

Laurens railroad, between Clinton and

Lee Hunter and Ross D. Leake, a dis
pute arose between G. Wash Hunter,
twin brother of Lee Hunter, and Elbert

appears, the four had been playing all
night. Hot words ensued when Cope
land, who was a cripple from early child
hood, is said to have struck Hunter
with his crutch, knocking him almost
down, and at the same time drew a
knife and declared that he would cut
Hunter's throat. As Hunter arose he

the left temple. Copeland was killed
Immediately after the shooting Wash

The autopsy was performed by Dr.
T. L. \|. Bailey, of Clinton. Shortly
nfieu^ards Coroner Watts empaneled a
jury"mid proceeded with the inquest.
The testimony of Dr. Bailey, II. Lee
Hunter and Ross D. Leak was taken.
Just before four o'clock the jury re

gun shot wounds at the hands of G.
Wash Hunter. Upon this finding Cor
oner Watts immediately issue(| a war
rant for the arrest of Hunter, and
placed it in the hands of Sheriff T. J.
Duckett, who was in attendance upon
the inquest proceedings, having gone
down during the morning. The Sheriff
left at once for Hunter's home, but the

But is Released From Jail Within Seven
Hours on $2,000 Bond.
G. Wash Hunter, who will have to
answer to the charge of having killed
Libert G. Copeland July 10, came to
Laurens Saturday morning and gave
himself up to Sheriff T. J. Duckett,
who at once locked him up in the county
jail. Hunter came in from his home
below Clinton, arriving about ten
o'clock. Ho was preceded to the city
two hours earlier by his brother, R.
Lee Hunter, in whose store house the
killing of Mr. Copeland occurred.
At two o'clock Mr. W. R. Richey,
attorney for Hunter, went to New
berry where ho appeared before Chief
Justice Y. J. Pope and asked for bail
for his client. The same was granted
in the sum of $2,0(i<> and at five o'clock
Hunter was released from jail, having
remained in prison only seven hours.

His great horror of being confined in
jail is bis reason for not giving up at
once to the authorities or permitting
himself to be arrested. He says he

' On the twenty-first of July the Czar
of Russia Issued a Ukase dissolving the
Duma In BCSSion In that country. The
members of that body have dispersed
after issuing to the people an address
highly revolutionary in character. They

fact that their cry is that of the Amer

didatcs in the Field.
Fully eight months in advance of the

Hcad-Ou Collision on Iho
Seaboard Air Line.
OKI)Ells NOT GIVEN.
Mr. John 0. Bowcn, Formerly of Laurens,
Conductor onjthc Mail Train, Among
Raleigh, July 23. -A collision between
a freight train and the regular mail
train on the Seaboard Air Lino at <S
o'clock last night, three miles west of
Hamlet, resulted in the death of four
trainmen, and seventeen others. Nine
teen of the dead are negroes. The in
jrued number twenty-four.
The bodies of the dead are being pre
pared for burial at Hamlet and Rock
ingham, while the injured have been
removed to Charlotte and placed in a
The wreck was due to failure of tho
regular passenger train to receive or
ders at Rockingham. The freight was
an extra southbound from Raleigh to
Monroe. It was manned by Conductor
Hunter and Engineer Bundy of this
city. Conductor Hunter is not reported
hurt and Engineer Bundy is very slight
The mail train was No. 44 running
from Charlotte to Wilmington. This
train was in charge of Conductor John
D. Bowen, who was slightly hurt. En
gineer Frank Lewis, of Hamlet, Fire
man Thomas Hill, of Hamlet, Baggago
Master IL S. Byrd, of Wilmington, and
Porter Jack Bogan, of this ill-fated
train were killed.
The baggage car and second-ches
coach on the passenger train were de
molished, and eight of the cars of tho
freight train were derailed, some of
them being piled on other cars ami
crushed to pieces.
Why the order was not given to the
passenger train at Rockingham is not
known, and will be investigated by the
superintendent of the road.
It is said that the operator at Rock
ingham is an experienced man, and has
been a faithful and careful employe of
the company for several year:..
A:: quickly as possible after the dis
aster, railroad men, citizens and pas
sengers who were uninjured, began to
woik heroically to recover tho dead and
injured, who were imprisoned under tin
cars. If the lamps in tho coaches had
not been extinguished the accident,
would have been made more horrible
Editors Hail a Good lime.
The editors of this Stale met at the
Isle of Palms in Charleston harbor last,
week and laughed together over then
own ferocity. Those who every week
"eat 'em alive" in the public print
drank to a complete reconciliation and
renunciation (until next lime) in the
salt waves that came rolling in, and
breaking over tho heads of the inex
perienced visitors from the up-country.
The kindly editor of tho News and
Courier, knowing how hard it must In
to the visiting brethren lo be too full
for utterance and without the chance to
utter, graciously threw open to them
the editorial columns of the News and
Courier, 'the results were all that ho
could have hoped for. The brethren of
the quill resigning all thought of di
tinguishiug themselves in their own pa
pers poured oul for him <d* their best
thoughts and tinned on their most elo
quent How of language.
The News and Courier had at last, as
its editor bad expected, the honor of
being in accordance with the best,
thought of the day. Maj. llemphill
stated in giving the invitation to the
visitors lo make his columns theirs,
that it was a well-known fai I that the
News and Courier had never keen
known tobe right. He even went so
far as to give the selfish reason for hi.-,
invitation that In- wished to reverse
this condition for the week at least.
Nothing that could haVO been done in
the "City by the Sea" would have gone
farther lo making the strangers within
the gales at home. It must have seemed
like home to be grinding out copy.
The social functions th.it woi'Q ar
ranged in tho association's honor were
all that could have been dc'slrcd. The
surf bathing was in itself not tho least
of the pleasures offered and in the days
lo come many a tired scribe will lie
back in his uneasy chair and shak ing off
the cares of tho ofllco, allow bis Im
agination to go hack and bring to him
the delicious thrill or the breakers and
the sight of the sea horses lurching in.
All who have criticized Charioston
lans for their solf-antisfacth n must, go
and see what if is with which they uro
satisfied and cavil nover again.
Tho Association has already ar
ranged to meet again, and perhaps
again and yet again at this lowly spot.
The power of the pen is certainly en
listed to fight the battles of this fair
city. Hereafter tho man, Woman or
child who knows of a fairer or bettor
place this side of eternity must realize
that the only way to disseminate that
knowledge will be through tho adver
tising columns of a good stiff figure per
