The Greenville News has the fol
lowing, of Interest In th'.s county:
I). L. McQueen, the young white
man recently charged with having
abducted Miss Grace Cannon, the 14
year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
J, A. Cannon, of Fountain Inn, was
released from the tolls of the law
Friday at noon when his attorneys
Martin nnd Martin, and Attorney J.
J. McSwain, representing the prose
cution, got together and effected a
Several hundred people assembled J
early yesterday morning in Magis
tr?te Stradley's office to hear the j
case of the young man and all parties |
interested In the case were In the i
city ready for the trial. After a long
conference it was decided to end the
matter by a compromise.
In an affadivit young McQueen '
agrees to leave the state forever,
discontinue his affections for the young
girl. In bis affadivit the young man
swears that he holds the highest re
gard and esteem for the young lady,
and that his intentions of marriage
were noble and pure and that he
really loves the girl, lie agreed, after
studying the matter over thoroughly. .
that her tenderness of years must be
a barrier between them and that he
must learn to forget the firm steady
face of the little girl.
Following is a copy of the affadivit
made by McQueen:
State of South Carolina,
County of Greenville.
Now comes I). I.. McQueen, who.
after being sworn to tell the truth,
the whole truth and nothing but the
truth, deposes as follows:
That he is now under arrest, but
out on bond, pending a prosecution
under Section 2N7 of the Criminal
Code, for the unlawful taking away
from her parents, .1. A. Cannon, and
his wife, Lizzie Cannon, of Fountain
Inn, South Carolina. their infant
daughter, Grace, who, as deponent is
now Informed and believes by her I
said parents, will be fourteen years of
age on February 28. 1910, without the j
knowledge and consent, and against the i
will of the parents of the said infant
daughter. That deponent is 2 1 years
of age. and. in order to correct cer
tain mis-statements of fact In connec
tion with said affair that have been
published in several newspapers, and
in order to exonerate said infant
daughter and her said parents from
any wrong doing, deponent now makes
the following statement of fact con
nected with said matter: That he has
been acquainted with said infant
daughter , Grace Cannon, only about
six weeks, but deponent had never
been formally introduced to the father
of said Grace Cannon, and had never
I ien introduced ac all to her mother.
Deponent bad never been to the home
of the said .1. A. Cannon, nor had he
ever asked to visit said home, and
deponent does not know that either
said .1. A. Cannon or his wife, Lizzie
Cannon had ever known or heard that
deponent was acquainted with their
said daughter. Deponent admits that
he had several meetings with said
daughter, at a near by home but that
such meetings were always nccompan
i led by the highest decorum in the
presence of other persons. Deponent
further says that upon the profession
of his devout affection Tor the said
Grace Cannon, he persuaded bei- to
meet him on the street near the Foun
tain Inn Cotton oil mill, where she
appeared in company with a school
girl friend, on the morning of Feb
ruary 14, 1910, and that she did so
moet him where he was writing with
a buggy, and Immediately drove with
her toward Woodruff. South Carolina.
That such drive was was continuing
toward Woodruff when deponent was
overtaken by three men riding horse
back, and within a few minutes there
after, a number of other persons came
up. and among them a constable, with
n warrant, who immediately arrested
deponent and carried him to Fountain
Inn. South Carolina, and some of said
party carried said Grace Cannon, in
mother buggy, back to Fountain Inn
and her home. That deponent has
never seen the said Grace Cannon
f lnce. and. upon being Informed of her
extreme youth, and being roponiont
fOr hlS Pet r>f ^n rpytntr lipr :, v. :. \ hf)8
made a resolvo to repress his affec
tion for her, and never to approach'
her again, and In reparation for the
wrong he has done her by thus per
suading her away from her parents
and her home, agrees to leave the state
of South Carolina, forthwith, and nev
er to ronew his acquaintance with her
l>y correspondence or otherwise, nnd
never to come back to the state of
