county. The newts of this deplorable
tragedy was not known by the news

til this morning.
Moses escaped about two months
ago from the Sumter chaingang. He
was located last night at a house near
Bo.sa rs. Omeer lyde and Constable
Nunnamaker wei;t out to capturc he:.,
as a reward had been offered for his
capture. The officers went to the
house and demanded admittance. Mr.I
Clyde went to one door a'l1 Mr. Nun
namaker to another door. Mr. Clyde
forced his way into the house with
his charaeteiistic bravery and found
Moses under a be'. He called upon
Moses to come out and surrender. but
Moses' reply was a shot from a shot
gun, which took effeet in Mr. Clyde's
abdomen. The popular and eflicient
officer succumbed to the terrible

of Mr. Marion Dorn, whbre he died
about 2 o''clock this morning. The
affair has created consternation in
this community and is regretted be
yond expresion. Mr. Clyde's broth
er officers of the Sumter police force
are using every means to locate his
murderer. but up to 8 o'clock tonight
have not succeeded. as far as is
Such affairs as the killing of an
officer in this peaceful community
are so unusual as to cause wide
spread comment. While putblie sen
timent is very bitter against Moses
still it can not be said that excita
ment runs high.
The city of Sumter has offered a
reward of $100 for the arrest of Mos
Mr. Clyde's body was brought to
Sumter today.
Less than a month ago this genial
and kind hearted officer's little 2
year-old child was burned to death.
Mrs. Clyde has the heartfelt sym
pathy of this entire c'ommu.nity.
The coroner's jury returned a ver
dict in .accordance with the facts, and
implicated Daphne McDaniels, one of
the women in the house at the time'
of the shdoting, who was placed in
ja" ""re feday.
Another Crime.
While Mr. Lawrence DuBose of
the Meehaniesville see,t.ion was going
down south Harvin st. last night at
7 o'cloek he was asaulted by a negro,
and his skull crushed by a brick. He
was taken to the Sumter hospital
and is in a -very criti-cal condition,
his skull being so erushed that it
rests upon the brain and a very,.deli
cate operaton had to be performed.
Frlom all that can be learned of
the affair Mr. DuBose was in com
pansy with a Mr. Easterling and they
were going"to the Goast Line passen
ger depot. It is said that the n'agro
ran against Mr. DusBose on thre street
and then attacked Mr. DuxBose. Mr.
Eas'terling went t~o the residence of
Alderman P. P. Finn, told him of the
attack. and asked that a physician b-e
called, which was done immediately,
Dr. Walter 'Cheyne responding.
Easterling is said to have mysteri
ously disappeared after the assu-lf,
and it is allege4 he took the train.
He is supposed to be from the Dal
zell setion. This morning it was
learned by the officers that one D-an
Rdbinson, a colored man who runs
on the North & Westfern train lbe
tween Camden and Sumter, commit
ted the assault.
He did not return on the train as
usual this morning and the Ca.mden
officeers have been asked to capture
him. He is said to have told some
negroes at the depot that he assault
ed a white man last night.
Mr. DuBose is a son of Magistrate
W. R. DuBose, Sr.. of Mechanies
ville. this county, and a brother of
Miss Addie DuBose of this city. Mr.
DuBose 's condition is more favorable
this evening and physicians hold out
some slight hopes for his recovery.

A Precautionary Request.
" ttor:iey Gra-tt Carpenter accept
ed an iin gitation to a Christmas din
n - in Oakland, the hostess being a
lay witi two grown daughters.
Whicn the guests had assembied at
ihi ;n:hle and were unfolding nap
king the bestess surprised Carpen
ter with a:1' un1exp}eted request that
he say grace. There was a painful
silence of a few moments. while the
art rney did diligent thinking in an
effort to reehl some long forgotten
prayer of his e1dlhood days. The
on1lv one that canie to him was that
beinin. ''NoV L lay me down to
sleep.'' However, his lawyer's wit
came to his rescue and lie was ena
bled to mumble something that
sounded like a pious invocaation.
After the dinner Carpenter asked
one of the daughters of the hostess
whether it was customiary in that
household for guests to lead in pray
er at :table.
"Oh. no," she replied. Mamma
is an atheist; but she was afraid
you might be religious. "-San Fran
