(Special to The State.)
Greenville, December 5.-This
afternoon between 4 and 5 o'clock a
desperate fight took place at the
bridge over the Southern railway on
the road to Paris mountain, two miles
from the heart of the city, betwoon
Constables Cornwell arid Cooley of
the State constabulary, and George
Howard, whose home is just outside
the city limits, on the Buncomboh
road near the Sampson and Poe cot
ton mill. It 'seems that Cornwell
and Clooley were on the scent of
whiskey wagons and mot George
Howard and another man coming
from towards the mountains, but
there is no accurate information as to
what took place except that shooting
began without any unnecessary de.
lay, resulting in George Howvard re
ceived a mortal wound, Clornwell be
ing severely, if not fatally, wounded,
and Cooley receiving a shot through
the thigh. Cornwell was brought to
the Windsor hotel, where p)hysicians
were called immediately and lie was
put under the influence of chlorotorm.
He was Buffering so much that lie
could not give any account of the
trouble, but said he felt certain that
shot from his pistol killed Howard.
This is said to be a mistake, how
ever, and that Howard is still alive,
though there is no hope for his re~
covery. Cooley's wound is not con
sideired dangerous and he will prob.
ably survive the combat.
The man who was with Howard ma
unknown as yet, and it is said that
he made a quick escape.
Howard formerly lived in the Darli
Corner, but recently has made hii
home near town. Ho is a cripple
about 45 years old and' has a family

had driven a covered wagon into the
woods this morning. The constables
were out on a raid, and circled around
the wagon. One of them discovered
liquor kegs and notified the other.
Cooley took charge of the liquor and
carried it to his buggy, while Corn
well approached the men, who wore
sitting on the ground before a fire
near the wagon. The men surren
dered without resistance and How
ard says that Cornwell took hold of
him, at which he remonstrated, tell
ing him toat the liquor belonged to
the other man, but that Cornwell
again seized him. After saying this
much he doelined to talk any more.
Cornwell has said that Howard in
formed him that he was not armed,
but that Howard opened lire on him,
wvhich he ret.urned at close range,
inflicting live wounds, and when
Howard wvas found on the roadside
by his nophewv his overcoat was afire
from the powvder of Cornwell's pistol.
Cooley was putting a Jzog in the
buggy on the opposite side from
where the others were standing, and
says he was fired upon when his back
was towards them. iHe thinks it was
the man who ran away that shot him,
and says the fire was repeated almost
instantly. He raised up and fired a
rifle at Howard and then emptied his
Irevolver at him.
Howard was wounded five times,
the most serious of which is in the
left breast, just below the nipple, the
bullet going in straight, and the
doctors are afraid to probe for it.
He was taken to his home on the
Pee hill, and the physicians injected
Initro-glycerine to keep his heart go
ing and prevent ai collapse, while
they were examining his wounds. It
is thought he cannot live through
Cornwell's wounds are also con
sidered fatal, the ball passing through
his intestines and the physicians do
not express any hope of his recovery.
He was married about two months
ago in Chester County and his wife
is seriously ill at their home, which
caused him to be taken to the hotel.
Cornwell walked about 5T0 yards.on
the read to town before he fell, and
when Cooley found him on the side
of the road he was too weak to get
into the buggy. Cooley then has
tened to town for assistance, which
was speedily given.
