KILLING AT C1(O8 HILL.
len W. Stevens Shot and Mortally
WVotandedl Joh~n .Jones.
Cross ilil, Dec. 2.-Last Thursday
morning a row occurred in Mr. .1. I
Spearnan's store between John Jones
and len W. Stephens in which the lat
ter was shot and mortally wounded.
The bail entered on the right side of
his breast below the collar bone and
ranged a little downward lodging in
the spine. The body below the wound
was paralyzed. \lr . Stephens was cart
ried to Chester Timrsjlay afternoon
accolmpanied by his wife and DIr. .\iil
ler, but all treatruent failed to bring
relie' and h1e died 'ril ay tuornilg.
Ihe odly was brought back to( Cross
liill l' riihty aternoni and internenI
was made Sat idurday it aiher ty Springs.
The burial ceremonies were conductted
by 1Rev. W. i). iatchford.
The cause of the trouble, it is said,
was a former dilliculty bet ween .lones
and Stephens' son in which .)ones had
shot young Stephens. In Thurs(lay's
trouble it appears that Stephens was
the aggreksor, Jones claiming at ilrst
to be unpir.epared, but at a more op
portune time drew his gun and fired
when Stephens was not expecting it,
nor even looking towards him. Kye
witnesses say that when Stephens fell
he pulled his pistol and shot at .lones
as the latter went out at the back door
but the ball went wild. .ones was
taken in charge at once and carried
to Laurens Thursday afternoon, wheie
he is still in jail. Both parties are
from Nehwber ry county. .\Mr. .l ones is
a young man somew here in t wenty,
while Mr. Stephens was fifty or more
year's old. The crime created much ex
citentent here and is greatly deplored
by our people. Those present, it is
said, did what they could to prevent
the I rouble.
.\ir. and .\ris. II. ('oodian passed
