The shooting occurred very near a
residence Where young people were en
joying a party. The shots caused con
Sternation at this place for a few ino
nients, but very soon the merrynmak
ers formed a part of the large crowd
that was attracted there by the fusi
lade. The other police oflicers acmc
up and word was sent to Laurens of
the capture. Many automobiles ear
ried people ip who wanted to view thc
body and all during the night a steady
stream of people came and went.

After hearing testimony and viewing

yeggman slain by City Policemai
Walker in the mnemnorable struggle at
the freight depot seven years ago,
when Policeman Stone met his death.
A search of the effects of the de

razor and shaving outfit. Old coins
found on his person were identitied by

poorly, in overalls an(d faded coat, anc
wore rough shoes and no socks. is
