Tribute to a Comuradle
lFditor ILaurens Advertiser:
I have felt so much concern, and my
heart so saddened at the dleath of my
goodI comrade -and loyal subaltern, the
late Policeman RloseL Marti, that I
am constrainedl to say a fewv words to
his memory in justice to his loyal fIdel
fty, to dluty andI the gentleness of his
noble spirit. In all our relations as
oficers of the law---sworn to do our
dluty in upholding the laws of our state
and county-lhe was always ready to
do his duty in every emnergehey of
dlanger, and I can confidently say that
our city has never had a more zealous,
though kind and sympathetic oflicer,
nor1 his .brother offlcers, a cooler headl
ed and braver comrade. Gentle as a
woman in his manners, courteous and
gallant as a knight of old, he won the
love 'and respect of all .with whonm lie
came in contact; noble-hearted and
true to all the virtues that go to make
an exemplary citizen, !I can in truth
write him down as one of nature5s no
llemen. In fact, the "elements of na
Lure were so mixed in him that all the
world might stand up and say, this
was e, man."
And now, in saying thus much, I
lavo simply p~aid a Ipoor tribute to the
nemory of one uwho deserves more than
can express in words, but not more
han I feel in my saddened heart; for
.rtuly our much-loved comrade has
nado the "supreme sacrifice" in the
lischar'ge of his duty,
uFAS. 'T. OR-E~WS,
Chief of Police.

further states: that these defendants
first passed this deponent and J. R.
Wham near Barksdale Station and that
.1. RI. Wham then recognized these le
fendants and deponent believes that
these defendants then and there rec
ognized both himself and J. 11. Wham.
That at the scene of the homicide both
the lights of deponent's car and also
the lights of the car in which the do
pendants were riding were shining on
officer Hosea Martin just before any
shots were fired. Also that Chief
Crews who has been an ofilcer In Lau
rens for a number of years, having
previously arrested one of then, and]
rvas well known to 'both of them, was
in plainl view of these defendants on
account of the lights of the autonio
biles, and that both Crews and Mar
tin were wearing officers' uniforms on
this occasion. Deponent again states
that lie was within 19 steps of Hosea
Martin when lie was shot, and that lie
hoard the reports and saw the flashes
of the shots from the car in which (e
fendants were riding, and these were
