Spartanhurg, )ec. i7.-1). A. Buck
hlister, superintendent of the street
railway lines of the -South Carolina
Light, Plower and Railway Company of
this city, was shot and almost Instant
ly killed here tonight shortig after 8
'c!oek by George V. Putnam, a for
mer' emplo-"e of the company. 'AIhe
,hooting occurred on Wast Main street,
at -the railway crossing. Four shots
were fired, all of which are said to
have entered 'Buckhelster's -body, the
fatal shot entering the brain just over
the eye. Putnam was arrested almost
immediately after 'the shooting and is
s'aid by the police to have been in an
intoxicated condition, when taken to
the police station. -He ,was transfer
red tonight n 1the county jail.
The police say there has been ill
feeling between Putnam and the su
perintendent of the street railway
lines since the days of a street rail
way strike more ithan a year ago, atl
which time Putnam was an eniployce
of the company and among the men
who struck and were never reinstated.
During the saie difficulty it was re
called by the police tonight, Mr. Buck
heister had some difliculty with a lit
tle son of Mr. Putnam, as a result of
which both Buckheister and Putnam
were flned in police court.
So far no 'witness has been found
who noticed any altercation between
the two men before the shots were
heard. R. A. 013Backwood, who con
ducts a restaurant and pool room near
the scene of the shooting, told the po
lice he noticed' Mr. Buckhelister stand
ing at the curbing as if waiting for a
street car some ioments before he
heard a report, land looking out of his
window saw Putnam holding his pistol
in Buckheister's face and firing it at
short ran-ge. -He rushed out and the
wounded man had fallen to the side
ow-alk. An ambulance was called but
before lie could be taken into the hos
pi-tal -three -blocks away, Mr. Buck
heister died. There is no record that
lie spoke after he fell.
-Mr. Buckheister has been superin
tendent of the street railway lines in
Spartanburg for twenty-five years. He
is a native of Charleston. 'He is sur
vived by his widow and three daugh
