YOUNG WHITE MAN DIEl IN PRISON.
e Sad Death of B. F. Covar of Chester; N
Evidence that Death Was Caused
(The State 17th.)
s A sad and somewhat mysteriou
h death occured at the State penitentar
yesterday morning. B. F. Covar,
young white man from Chester, wh
s was lately imprisoned for theft fror
his empleyees, breathed his last withii
the whitewashed walls of the prisoi
a hospital. To ascertain from what caus
a he came to his death a coroner's jur:
c was impanelled last night.
1 Covar, as told in The State a fev
i days ago, was forwerly employed bb
Mr. J. L. Shull of this city as confiden
tial clerk. On one occasion Mr. Shul
left the city for a short time leavini
Covar in charge of the business. Whei
he returned he found that Covar ha<
absconded with some $30 in cash. Th4
police were notified and inquiries as t<
the missing man's whereabouts wer(
made but no trace of him could b4
found. For over a year he was trackec
and though located in several places hE
invariably escaped capture until E
week or two ago when he was found it
Chester and landed under the orders of
Sheriff Coleman of this county. HE
was brought to Columbia and tried be
fore a magistrate and found guilty.
At the time of his incarcernation in
the jail he complained of curious pains
in his head and on the advice of Dr.
Knowlton, county physician, he was
taken' to the penitentiary hospital.
While in the infirmary he said that he
had had some trouble with some ne
groes in Chester one of whom had
struck him on the head.
Upon investigation it was found that
the negro who he claimed had struck
him was on the chainganzin l aster.
The (hester chief of police was notified
and instructed not to release the negro
unless the finding of the coroner's jury
should warant such action.
The-eoroner's jury met last night and
after investigation decided that the de
ceased came to his death from natural
causes. Dr. Knowlton's autopsy re
vealed this fact. Only two witnesses,
Messrs. W. C. Cathcart and Hume
Sligh were examined. They both tes
tiged as to Covar's arrest and his con
dition while in jail.
Covar was a native of Edgefield coun
ty and was 22 years of age. His father
arrived last night to take charge of the
LEE A (X)UNTY.
Supreme Court Removes Obstacles The
Baby County Has Met with in its
Fight for Existence.
[Nws and Courier.]
Columbia, December 17.-The Su
preme Court has rendered a decision
dismissing the petition for an injunction
against the Lee County commissioners,
thus bringing to an end the many ob
stacles the baby county has met with
in its fight for existence. The deci
sion was rendered by Justice Jones and
was unanimously .concurred in by the
other Justices. The decision is long
and goes into detailed argument in
reference to the various points raised,
but concludes, after carefully consider
ing the matter, that the petition should
be dismissed upon the ground that it
fails to state a cause of action, the
facts not warranting the injunction.
The gist of the whole decision is thai
no tribunal other than the Legislature
has been appointed to determine
whether the constitutional provisions
are complied with, and the Act by
which Lee County was formed, recites
that all conditions had been complied
with. The determination of the exis
tence of such facts cannot be assailed
by evidence impeaching the same, the
Legislature having power to determinm
such facts, no fraud or deceit being im
putable to the Legislature.
It was somewhat of a coindence thai

Governor this morning that he wantet
to hold a certain prisoner, and saying
there was some quiestion as to his au.
