Sensational Case of Three Persons Charged
#. a a ? t w v wmt Wf ? /ITT V tHf1
SCANDAL IN HlUi Llht
The Murder Was the Result of the
intimacy of a Doctor and the Wife
of a Prominent Citizen, Who Was
Slain by the Doctor and His Accomplices.
The Sayler case, which is now on
trial at Watseka, 111., is oue of the
most sensational murder cases ever
tried in that State. The intensity
of the interest taken by the community
in the oase is duo not only
to the sensational \details of the
crime and of the conditions which
led to it. but also to the fact that
the murdered man and those accused
of being his slayers and their
respective relatves are known to ev.
erybody throughout Iroquois county,
and even beyond its limits.
Immediately after the crime was
committed, on July 11, 1909, popular
feeling in the county was so
strong, that it would have been practically
impossible to obtain a jury of
twelve unbiuced men to try the three
persons charged with the murder.
But since then the excitement has
cooled down considerably and it is
believed that the selection of the
jury will not be exceedingly difficult.
The accused, having wealthy"
family connection, will be represented
by the ablest counsel that money
could procue and no effort will be
spared to save them from conviction,
which would mean hanging or lifelong
The persons to be tried for the
murder of John Byron Sayler, the
[: Cresent City banker and live stock
:broker, are Dr. William F. Miller,
L.c- Mrs. Lucy Sayler, the widow of the
murdered man and her father, John
- Grunder. Ira Grunder, a brother of
Mrs. Sayler, is also under indictment
but merly as an accessory after the
fact." Etate's attorney John C. Pallissard
will conduct the prosecution
and he professes to feel sure of the
conviction of the accused.
John Bryon Sayler was ki'led in
... -his own house by William R. Miller
about ten o'cIock. on rhe nis:ht of
y July ' 11, 1900 The dcferic-; will
j ? claim that the deed was an act of
self defense and that Dr. Miller di.l
v not fire the fatal shots until after
Sayler had attacked with a hatchet.
The prosecution, however. will
try to prove that the act was premeditated
murder and was the res'
suit of a conspiracy between Dr.
S& Miller, Mrs. Sayler and her father.
It appears that for maay years,
Dr. Miller and Mrs. Sayler entertained
intimate relations which w?re the
talk of the town and caused the comv
munity socially to ostracise both the
doctor and his affinity. It is known
that Sayler, the victim of tho mur
der, had knowledge of the relatijns
existing between- his wife and Dr.
Miller for many years, but that for
- the sake of his daughter he refrained
from taking legal steps to obtain
I Dr. Miller's wife, a lovable and
hignly respected woman, also knew
of the scandalous relations of her
husband, but would not seek sepe:?

nected with a divorce suit would

fcf| It is said that Dr. Miller and his
Sri affinity made several attempts to rid
Ijja themselves of their respective legal
[9 partners and even tried to inveigle
|aP Sayler into the appearance of an
entaglement >vith Mrs. Miller, but
Ii failed in every instance. It is believed
and will be charged by the
prosecution that becoming desperate
the doctor and liis affinity resorted
to the extreme remedy of killing the
man who stood in their way.
What happened at the Sayler residence
on the night of the murder
only the persons charged with the
murder know. They claim that Sayler
came into the room in which
Mrs. Sayler, her father and Dr. Miller
were about to play a game of
cards, that they urged him to join
the game, but that he refused and.

They insist that Dr. Miller merely

hooting, assert that there was no

At Charlotte, X. C., and on one
the principal streets, negroes Sat day
held tip and assaulted a white

THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY 1>II> A <
OOOI) DEAL FOR THEM.
It Gave Money to Support Various
Things that the Farmers of the
Farmers have no reason to complain
of their treatment at the hands
of the recent Legislature. A survey
of the bills enacted into law shows
that the General Assembly adopted
this session some very progressive
and diversified legislation.
Provision was made for the inspection
of comermcial foodstuffs,
the income to go to the Department
of Agriculture, commerce and industry,
of which Col. E. J. Watson is
the aggressive head.
A special appropriation of $4,000
for the general expenses of the department
was also given, this being a
splendid recognition of Col. Watson's
untiring and successful eflorts for
the development of the State.
An up-to-date pure seeds law based
upon the Wisconsin statute was
For the farm demonstration work,
so successfully managed in the State
by Mr. Ira W. Williams, an appropriation
of $5,000 to supplement the
national appropriation was made?
a good example for other States.
For the great corn show to b^ held
in Columbia this fall $1,000 Tyas given,
conditioned upon $4,000 being
raised in the State at large. And
this is assured, Mr. A. E. Gonzales,
having pledged $1,000 of the amount.
It is also gratifying to note that
the Legislature appropriated $500
for the support of the work of the
State Corn Breeders Association,
which works along the lines of the
most progressive of such organizations
in the West.
WANTS ALL HIS WAGES.
Bride Takes Her Hubby to Court for
Keeping Thirty Cents.
"When I married Sam," said Mrs.
Fanny Bookbinder in a New York
police court, "he promised to provide
for me and Saturday night his
pay envelope was 30 cents short."
Mrs. Bookbinder is a bride of eight
days. Although she has a personal
bank account of $1,000, which she
refuses to share with Sam, she hauled
him into court on representations
that he had treated her cruelly.
"Sam make $20 a week," she continued,
"and I want every cent of it.
If he needs anything. I'll get it for
him. I know what's due a wife and
that's why I brought him here."
"Suppose your husband wants a cigar?"
suggested the magistrate.
"I'll buy it for him," repeated Mrs.
The magistrate laughed outright.
"'Then go home and make up your
mind," he said, "to do as your hus
band tells you and take what he
gives you. And don't you come before
me again with such rediculous
charges. Case dismissed."
The pair left court, arm in arm,
and there was no sign of a cloud to
dim their honeymoon. *
Is Only Twenty-One Years of Age
Has Three Wives.
The first case taken up in the
Greenwood court last week was that
of the state against George H. Moselev,
charged with bigamy. The defendant
pleaded guilty and was given
a sentence of one year in the penitentiary.
This case is rather interesting
in view of the fact that the
young man is only twenty-one years
old and has been married three
rimes. He married the first time in
Honea Path, the second time at
Greenwood, and the last time at
Ninety-Six, all of the towns being
in a radius of about twenty-six miles.
Two of his wives were in court Monday;
but did not get the opportunity
to testify in view of the fact
that the defendant pleaded guilty.
The minister who performed the
ceremony in each case, was also present.

IN THE MANCHESTER COTTON' TJ
IVhilo Unhurt Mr. Patten Was Great- \\
Iy Chagrined by Display of Hostility
to Him in Manchester.
A hostile demonstration on the
floor of the cotton exchange at Man- d;
:h- ster, England, r.nd one directly bi
contrasting it for friendliness on the p,
;orn exchange at Liverpool were met c
with Friday by James A. Patten, the v<
Chicago wheat and cotton operator. ir
In the first Mr. Patten was mobbed 3
and probably escaped injury only by d
being, rescued by the police; in the c<
latter he was greeted with cheeks and w
other manisfestations of friendliness. ^
Mr. Patten sailed from Liverpool Saturday
for New York on board the
Cnnard line steamer Mattretania. Cl
The brief visit to England of the 0
Chicago operator has been spent S
mostly about the Liverpool markets c'
and Friday he made up his mind to 0
run over to Manchester to sie the
city and visit the cotton exchange. c:
It was known to Mr. Patten that C1
there had been threats of an unpleas- S(
ant reception should he visit "Cot- c'
tonopolis," out he refused to believe C(
they would be carried into effect. e
These threats, it is said, emanated
from personn .on the exchange who
had lost large sums as a result of
Mr Patten's operations in Chicago, ^
and from others, who held him re- *
sponsible for Thursday's rise in the 3
price of cotton and v-'ho believM that g
his visit to England had for :ts |>ur- v
pose the manipulation of the market.
Hardly had Mr. Patten touched the r
floor of the Manchester exchan^j be- n
fore the outburst came. He wag f
hooted and jeered by the throng and 11
r.hen surrounded and hustled in'u the 1
street. The crowd followed even d
here and did not desist its manisfes- v
i;ation of dislike until the American P
had been placed in a cab by the po- '
lice and started for the railway sta- r
tion, where he took the first traic c
back to Liverpool. While unhurt h# 1

BIG SALE OF FERTILIZERS. *
Forty-Eight Thousand Tons More <
Sold This Year.
The farmers of the State, accord- ?
ing to the number of tax tags sold, t
are using more fertilizer this year c
than in the past, says the Columbia i
State. The books in the State teras- t
urer's office show that since* the first c
of the year the sum of $154,467.38 1
has been received for tags. S
This is over $12,000 more, than f
was received at this time last yer.
The amount received to date last 2
year was $142,147.37. The total 1
amouat received from the fertilizer 1
tax tags last year was $202,741.31. 1

a and the Senate leadership contest
. were quietly discussed by former
Gorernor Odell, Chairman Woodruff,
B of the Republican State Committee:
3 Representative Dwight, the Republican
"whip" in the lower house at
1 Washington, and representative Sloat
r Fassett, and other Republican legia;
lators from Washington and Albany.
The delegation from Washington
brought word that the feeling in
Administration circles favored Hlnman's
election. Albany retorted that
such action was unlikely, and It was
hinted that a hitherto unmentioned
. candidate might be put forth as a
. dompromlse. It is apparent that
Senator Cobb'B supporters, who in
. elude Chairman woodruff and Wm.
f Barnes, Jr., the Albany leader, in[
tends to press his candidacy at the
t conference at Albany.

' Lightning Plays Strange Pranks But
Hurts No One.
At Somerville, N. J., the telephone,
electric light and fire alarm service
is crippled as a result of the moBt
| severe electric storm ever experienced
in this section of New Jersey.
A dozen residences and an equal
number of barns and outbuildings
were struck by bolts, but no serious
fires resulted. The lightning played
some strange pranks.
A bolt came down the chimney of
the new residence of William Arkenberg
and traveled around the dull
tilt moulding on the walls throughout
the house, leaving it with a surface
like newly burnished gold.
In another house a bolt which , -
struck a projecting gable divided |
Into several branches on entering i ^
the house and lighted eight small 1
flres in as many different rooms. j
