HORRIBLE STORY OF MURDER.
Capture of Lee Green, Charged With
the Murder of Surasky, the Jew
Peddler, In Aiken County.
Aiken,' August 21.-Lee Ireen,
he alleged murderer of Surasky, the
ew peddler, was brought to Aiken
by Sheriff Alderman and posse last
night about 9.30. Green was sur
rounded and captured at his father's
place, near Hawthorne, about twenty
miles from Aiken.
For several days two men of that
section, Arthur Glover and West
Cadden, have been on the watch for
Green, and finally located him at his
father's place. Early yesterday
morning they telegraphed Sheriff
Alderman that Green wps cornered
and if he could come at once with
a few men Green could be captured.
Sheriff Alderman left Aiken about
12 o'clock with ten mon. Two of
Surasky's brothers left here for the
scene about the same time. The
sheriff's party arrived at McClan's
store, two miies from Green's house,
at about 5 o'clock, where they found
Glover and Cadden, who had slipped
away to again communicate with the
sheriff. Messrs. Glover and Cadden
reported that they and Green had
fired several shots at. one another
during the morning and that they
felt sure that he was still on the
place. Sheriff Alderman, who now
had about fifteen men, sont pirt of
his force around to come in at the
back of the place and he and the re
maider of the party went to the
house.
Mr. Greei, the elder, was asked if
his son Lee was at. home. He re.
plied that his son was on the place,
but he did not know where. The
posse then searched all the buildings
and it was at last discovered that
Green was in the fodder loft of the
barn.
It was at first thought that the
building would have to be ltirned in
order to chase Green out, but the
sheriff finally told Lee Green's
brother to go into the barn and tell
him that he had better give up.
The brother went in and came out
in few minutes with Lee's gun and a
few moments later the man who had
terrorized titt section for nearly a
month walked out of the barn and
gave himself up to .heriff Alderman.
The gun Green had with him was
a single-barrelled broech loader and
his ammunition was shells loaded
with bird shot. Green told the
sheriff that he intended to give him.
self up after a while, as he wvas not
able to give bond and did not care to
stay in jail so long.
However, there is nio doubt that
that immediate vicinity is feeling a
great deal easier now that he and
.the sheriff have finally made connec
tion.
Lee Greeun is a young man about
18 years of age, weighs about 175
pounds and is shout six feet tall, and
is a powerful man for his age. He
is saidl to be a bad character and a
great trouble to his old fat her, who
is one of the best ment of that. section.
It is aid that Lce (Grein ,hot at a
Jew peddler, named Levi, fronm Au
gusta, not long ago, and stated at
the time that lie did it just to see him
run. He is also said to have threat
ened to kill the next p)eddler that
came to his house, as they always
sold his wife goods, and1 he was never
able to keep a cent of money in the
house.
Abram Surasky is said to have been
killed while performing an act of
courtesy for Green On the dIay of
the murder Green had been t.o the
mill and was at his honne on his
horse, with his saek of meal and his
double barrelled shotgun across the
RP.dldle, just ahout t he time Surasky
drove tip ini hi. wvagon.
TIhins was about. 2 o'clock mn the
aft erno< n. As ihne r ce-n ailig hted they
shook hands, anrd Sntrasky' walked
over to Gr eon's heroe and t hre'w the
sack of meal nero ns his shoer I', and
told Greene t hat, heu would caerry it tc
the honse fo,r heim. Sarasky weelkedl
towards the honse' snd whene he was
about I wenty liv" cstops away Green
shot hinm t wice in the back, but die]
not. hurt him t, as the shot. probably
all entered the sack of meal. nras
ky turne'd and, throwing the sack
down, lifted his hands above his
head and begged Green not to shoot
him.
Surasky then saw Green reloading
his gun, and so the peddler ran into
the house, where Mrs Green was, and r
begg9d her not to let her husband i
kill him. It is said that Mrs Green '
pleaded for the life of the Jew, butl
Green rushed into the house after
him. 0
Surasky held Mrs Green between t
himself and his assailant; and then c
Green is said to have told his wife t
that if she didn't get out of the way d
he would shoot her. Surasky then i
tried to run away, but Green shot e
him twice in the back and brought 1
him to the ground, just outside of 1
the door. L
The gunshots did not kill him, and
Green then got an axe and chopped i
him until life was extinct. He then il
loaded the body on his victim's ii
wagon and hid it in the woods, as t
before reported. il
The above story of the crime is c
said to have been received direct C
from a relative of Lee Green and is a
thought to bi authentic. t
It is said that George Toole is not
crin-inally connected with the crime, 1
as was at first thought, but it is under j
stood that he arrived at Green's house l
just as the killing occurred and he t
was afraid to tell of it. Toole is now L
out of jail on $500 bail and it is a
thought that he may be able to ti
"prove out," as he said. H
The party who went with Sheriff c
Alderman from here and assisted in i
capturing Green consisted of Messrs. I
Wesley Royal, Monroe Vernon, Jim t
Vernon, W. T. McCullough, Henry
Howard, L. Craig, Paul Glover, T. 1

Held Up and Searched.
Spartanburg, August, 21.-The
jewels 811d valuables stolen fron
White Stone Springs continue an un
solved mystery.
Recently a guest from Chicago,
stopping at the hotel, for several days,
decided to go to Glenn Springs. She I
could not secure accoimmodations
there snited to her, owing to tho
crowds of people at that place. She I
returned to White Stone, and in a
hurried manner decided to leave the
hotel and go to the mountains. She<
was in ill health.
For a few days articles of jewelry
were missing from a number of rooms
on the south side, second floor, and I
suspicion rested on her among some
of the hotel people.
She had her trunks ready for do
parting, when an agent of 'roprie
tor Harris approahed her and advised
her to stay, relating the robbery in.

She was bent on going, and oftered
to pay the expenses of the agent to
this city where he could examine
her trunks and grip. T[his wvas set.

thorough search, instit uted subse
quent to securing her written consent
thereto, was entered into.
TI'he result revealed the fact t hat
she had not one of the missing articles
in her possession. She is very much
mortified and hurt at the treatment
she received and proposes to stay
here until the entire mat.teir is set

She is a memb)er of the Illinois

About a month hence it is expect

It was a warm, midsummer day at
Dyster Bay, and the President was
3eated on the shady veranda of Saga

proached, accompanied by a man of
unmistakable foreign aspect. Be

"Mr. President, I have the honor

"Dc-lighted to meet you, Blob;

"I have the honor to represent the

"I cherish the kindest regard for

I know there isn't a man in the whole

"In nothing do the Government

selves more fortunate than in the
friendship of the Government and
people of the United States; but at
the same time I can give you cards

"it is my most, ardent desire that
the amicable relations now existing
between your country and mine shall
be porpotuated and strengthened;
and n oantinme I will run you a two

"I am part.icularly charged to use
my best efforts to promote mutual
peace and prosperity, and I'll bet my

higher than you can."
"You will please convey to your

AMBRICAN BOAT TAKES FIRST.
The Reliance Defeats the Shamrock III on
Saturday-Lipton Still Has
Great Hope.
New York, August 22.-In a splen
did twelve to fifteen:knot breeze over
a windward and leeward course of
thirty miles the gallant sloop Roli
ance to day beat Shamrock 11I in
commanding style by exactly nine
minutes, actual time, or seven min.
utes and three seconds after deduct
ing the one minute and fifty seven
seconds, which the defender concedes
to Sir Thomas Lipton's third chal
longer on account of her sailing
plan as at present measured.
It was a royal water fight for the
ancient trophy which carries with it
the yachting supremacy of the world,
and by a strange coincidence the
first victory in the cup series of 1903
occurred on the fifty -secoud anni
versary of the day on which the old
schooner America captured it in her
famous race around the Isle of Wight.
The reliance beat the British' boat
three minutes and twenty four sec
in the thresh to windward, o,d five
minutes and thircy-six seconds in the
run down the wind.
THE NAUTICAL SHARPS,
who had already made up their minds
on Thursday that. the Reliance could
take the measure of the challenger
in any kind of weather, regard to
day's test as conclusive, although
they hardly anticipated so overwhel
ming a victory. The race even
dampened tho ardor of Sir Thonms,
who insisted, aftep Thursday's fluke
that his confidence in the beautiful
craft designed by Fife was greater
than ever. Still, like a true sports
man, hq does not acknowledge defeat
and hopes for better Iick next time.
The single criticigu he and his
friends make of to-day's race is that
the only shift of the wind which oc
curred was to the advantage of the
defending yacht. As this shift of
the wind occurred on the windward
beat, even granting that it accounted
for Reliance's lead at the turn, the
time the defender gained on the run
home was more than ample to have
given her the race. It mst be con
ceded, however, that the Shamrock
showed herself a wonderful boat in
beating to windward; perhaps tho
ablest craft in this respect ever sent
across the western ocean on a cup
hunting expedition.
Twelfth Attempt to Lift Cup.
The schooner yatch America won
the cup in a race arouo.1 the Isle of
Wight, from a fleet of English

Yesterday's race was the 13th
contest for the trophy. The cup is
valued at 100 gnineas. it is in the
form of a :'ilver pitcher and is 27
inches high, 36 inches in circum
ference and wveighs 11 pounds. It
now has no botton. It is kept in the
