Winnsboro, June 14.-Three, peo ple were shot to death, one was prob- i ably fatally wounded and hall a do zen others were more or less pain fully hurt here this morning in a bat tle precipitated by the bringing of ; Jules Smith, a negro, to Winnsboro for trial for alleged criminal assault upon a white woman of Fairfield county. The dead are: A. 1). Hood, sheriff of Fairfield county; Jules Smith, the prisoner, and Clyde I son how er, rela tive of the alleged victim. J. R. Boulware, a deputy sheriff of Fairfield county, is probably fatally shot. Soon after the tragedy the grand jury met and returned true bills charging murder against Clyde Ison hower, who at that time was linger ing on the point of death; Ernest I sen ho wer, his brother; Jesse Morri son, a brother-in-law, and Janies Rawls. the indictments charging the murder of Jules Smith. The Inquest into the negro's death was adjourned until Friday. The in quest into the sheriff's death will be held to-morrow. Doth Sheriff Hood and Isen ho wer were literally shot to pieces. Bach had fhe or six bullets in his body. Doth were shot several times In the abdomen as well as in the arms and hands. Deputy Boulware was struck but once, the bullet penetrating the abdominal cavity and caused what is regarded as an exceedingly dangerous wound. Smith, too, was struck but once, the bullet taking effect just to the left of the navel. Earle Stevenson, another deputy, was shot twice through the left arm, near the elbow. One of the bullets severed the artery in the arm, and young Stevenson suffered terribly from the loss of blood before the I tourniquet was applied to staunch tho How. Stevenson and Isen ho wer were taken to Chester late this afternoon for surgical attention in the Pryor | Hospital. Isenhower died at 10.30 o'clock to-night. A special train came here from Columbia immediately after the shooting and Sheriff Hood and Deputy Houlware were rushed to Columbia for operations, the former dying early I to-night. In the fusillade many shots went wild, striking bystanders here and there, or burying themselves in the walls of the building. On the stair way up which Sheriff Hood led his prisoner, the wall is splotched with blood and Hie plastering is bullet drilled. Policeman Haynes, wi with Sheriff Hood was leading l??gro up the stairwaytlWWWted' jpteT a moment when the firing began/and three or four bullets were plugged In the wall on either side of his head. 1). F. Smith, who was standing In the court yard, was struck in the side bv a bullet, which had spent its force against ono of the large columns of the portico. W. L. Holley, Judge of Probate, also had a narrow escape. Mr. Holley was leaning against the door facing of the lower front entrance to the court house. When Clyde Isenhower had emptied his pistol he ran Into the building, witli bullets flying in his trail. One of these blt a particle from the brick coping at Mr. Holley's side, and, barely brushing his sto mach, buried itself in the opposite wall. There were not more than four or five in the attacking party. Since Smith's arrest two or three months ago the prisoner had been held nt the State penitentiary, from which he was taken early this morning and brought to Winnsboro by Sheriff Hood and eight deputies. As a matter of pre caution ten or twelve others had been sworn in to assist in the deliv ery of the prisoner to the court. When the two automobiles arrived from Columbia, tho machines were switched into the jail yard, and the prisoner was led toward the court house. Nothing happened until the officials began to ascend the steps leading to the court, room. Then Clyde Isenhower, relative of the al leged victim, opened fire. So close was the assailant that the ballusters are powder burned. Tlie weapons used in the fire be tween Sheriff Hood and isenhower practically locked each other in the exchange of shots, lt is thought that Isenhower killed Hie negro with the first shot fired. (.rand Jury Act?. Indictments for murder were re turned late this afternoon against four members of the band attacking Hie officials and the prisoner. Those accused were: Clyde Isenhower, Ern est Isenhower, a brother; Jesse Mor rison, a brother-in-law, and Janies Bawls.
