CMINE ON THE HIGHWAY

W. T. Saxon Shot and Mortally Woand.
ed Because Ite Would Not Hold Up
Greenwood, Feb. 26.-letusing to
hold up his hands when confronted
by two armed men last night about
9:60 o'clock while on his way home
from his shoe repair shop, W. T. Sax
on, about 50 years of age, was 'pos
sibly fatally shot in the shadow of a
church in Greenwood mill village
where he lives. According to Chief of
Police M. D. Chandler; cwhom Saxon
asked to see after .being carried to a
local -hospital, -he identified one of the
assailants as John Burnett, a mill em
ployee. Hack Fuller, another mill em
QpIoyee, is also under arrest.
IWhen accosted by the hold-up men,
Saxon says he recognized them an.
laughed, thinking they 1were -playing
a joke on him. Burnett, he claims,
told him it he did not hold up his
hands he would shoot. Saxon replied
that he did not have the grit to shoot,
it is said, and received one bullet at
clone range. The bullet . apparently
(was an explosive bullet. It ranged
downward through the abdomen, tear
ing jagged holes in .the Int9ot01498 Phy

The tragedy last night was .the cli
max of a series of robberies and hold
ups. Two Bailey Military institute
cadets were robbed of a small amount
of jewelry a few weeks ago, and two
other cadets, -by refusing to hold up
their hands, bluffed three bandits into
flight last Friday night.
Third Arrest Made in Saxon Hold-Up
Greenwood Index-Journal, 25th.
Bob Vogerman, the third man to be
(imPlicated in the -hold-up and shoot
ing of W. T. Saxon in the shadow of
West End Baptist church, was arrest
ed at his home in Greenwood mill il
lage and lodged in the county jail late
yesterday afternoon. John Burnett,
who 'W. T. Saxon, the wounded man,
declares shot him, is in jail, as well as
'lac.k Fuller, held on suspicion.
Sheriff E. M. White states that be has
witnesses who say they saw Foger
man and Burnett together in the mill
about 16 minutes before the hold-up
and that they had ,pistols and seemed
to be plotting something. When the
witnesses asked them ivrhat they were
-plotting, they took it as a Joke and
laughed, it is said.
John 'Burnett is said to be on parole
from the state penitentiary for a rob
bery committed in Clinton about two
years ago. He was sentenced to three
years in the state penitentiary and
was paroled on good behavior last
spring after serving one year of his
sentence, according to information ob
tained -by Sheriff White.
W. T. Saxon, the wounded man, is
still alive at the Grreenwpod hospital
and passed a comfortable night. DYr.

W. P. Turner, who operated on him
soon after the shooting, said this.
morning that his condition was alyout
the same. Mr. Saxon may live three
or four days, but there is no hope for
his recovery, it is said. He is %per
fectly conscious and sticks firmly to
his statement that John Burnett Is the
man who shot him.
'County officers and the city police
are making every effort to trace all
clues whic7 anay lead to other arrests.
Sheriff .White and Rural Policeman J.
T. XMDowell and R. L. Lyon are at.
work today as rwell as Chief M. IB.
Chandler and the city tpolice who are
cooperating with the county officers.
Chief Chandler and Sheriff White
with their assistants have already col
lected considerable information and
have clues which will lead to arrests
and convictions, .they believe. Officers
believe that one gang has been respon
sible for all the robberies conunitted
here and hope to ferret out the guilty
members of the 'band.
