The people of Y/innsboro are strong
in their condemnation of the affair, j
and are demanding a vigorous prose- j

that it has put a stain on their town,

order prevailed and proud of tineir untarnished
record in the past. Theiy de

bs" Today
the HiUfviUe, Va., tragedy.
The shooting took place at 10
o'clock this morning and by noon the
townspeople were possessed of their
accustomed calm, a seemingly deadly
calm -which foretold a determination
to wipe out the stain which had unwittingly
fallen upon trem by bringing
to speendy justice those responsible.
TTie people here did not underj
stand the necessity for calling out
j the military compan}*, but that brave
j body of men under Capt. J. B. Doty
! responded promptly when orders came
11 UXU Lviuiiiuia,
They escorted Sheriff Hood and the
two wounded deputies to the special
train, which took them to Columbia,1
for there l ad been some idle talk that J
, more shooting was imminent. Tne
I company dispersed, for there was j
I nothing for them to do. The townsI
people were amazed when two auto-;
i . :
i mobiles, carrying 4,sou rounds or rine;
! ammunition and 700 rounds of pistol
! ammunition, raced in from Columbia.
The detail, which brought the ammu-!
nition was commanded by Adjt. Gen.
J. Sharpter Caldwell, for the report
fad been sent to Columbia that t/he
company here was without ammuni-j
tion. The cars were guarded by a
detail of men hastily enlisted in Co-1
lambia and the run from the capital j
city here was made in record time.!
The detail returned to Columbia when j
they found the situation here "was j
quiet. Several automobiles came from j
Columbia, but the 'excitement faerej
lasted less than an frour; in fact, as;
one citizen said, it was all over be-!
fore anyone knew what was going on. j
They best described it as "sounding
like the popping of firecrackers." j
Court was to have convened here this,
morning, but after the tragedy it did,
not assemble until 3 o'clock this af-j
ternoon. There was an air of unusual.
solemnity pervading the court room, j

reflected toe gravity of the situation:
by tfteir actions and demeanor. The j
atmosphere impressed one with the
feeling that those responsible for the '
tragedy were going to be held to
"strict accountability."
''Assassination," Says Conrt.
"The blood-stained portals of this
temple of justice cry aloud for the!
vindication of the majesty of the law,",
said Judge Jofrn S. Wilson in his vig-j
orous charge to the Fairfield grand j
jury this afternoon, in winch he de-!
aounced the shooting of Sheriff Hoodj
and his. deputies as "assassination"
and called on the jury to make a thorough
and sweeping investigation and
to bring every , one connected with the
norriDie aaair to justice.
"It is your duty," said Judge Wilson, j
"to act and to act in suci a manner
as to vindicate the law wiMch has:
been so greatly outraged this day."
Calling attention to the fact that-he
first presided as Judge in Winnsboro
in September, 1907, Judge Wilson re-:
called the glorious history of Fairfield
county, "a county known for the manhood
of its men and the purity of its
women, a couniy wnere law ana ujuci
reigned, but whic: this day has been
out: aged. Did t is happen on the borders
of Arizona? Did this happen in ,
Mexico? No, it happened in old his-j]
toric Winnsboro," continued the judge. |:
"vVihat man is there whose blood :
ioes not boil when he hears of tr.e j1
?rime of which this poor wretcn stood '
iccused?" Judge Wilson asked, adding
:hat he had been informed that the j 1
: ]
legro had confessed and that every- j
hine was in readiness to give nim a j<
'air and impartial trial, and that the !1
aw would have been r, indicated and '
; (
ustice done. He said tJ .at men should i
control themselves in such circum-j'
stances, "but this morning men gave 11
rent to their passions and took the 11
aw into their own hands, and with i(
' J
vhat result? Your sheriff lies hover- !
1 /
ng between life and death. The '
iegro is dead, Several deputies are (
>adly wounded. Talk about Mexico? i'
Iere at the door of this court r.ouse !
awlessness reigns. It ought to shake
the State of South Carolina from
?entre to circumference," emphatically 1
ieclared Judge Wilson.
Tribute to Sheriff.
The judge paid a glowing tribute to
:he brave sheriff wino risked his life in .
Lhe performance of his duty. "A man ! (
witi'.out a drop of coward's blood in 1
bis veins and a man whom I delight to |
honor; I wish eve^y sheriff in South j
Carolina was like hioi. and that we ;,
had thousands of sr.ch citizens," stated :
Judge Wilson, vho praised the brav-|,
ery, the devotion to duty and ti:e ac-1
tion of Sheriff H; od, and called on ;
the grand jury to bring the ones
"guilty of -this horrit'e crime" to jus- !
Solicitor J. K. Henry was equally ^
emphatic in his denunciation of the .
occurrence, and took immediate steps j
to begin a vigorous prosecution of the
guilty parties. The Matter was taken
in ftand by the grand jury and an immediate
investigation was begun.
Coroner Smith empanelled a jury
and, after viewing the remains of tI3e
dead negro, adjourned the inquest until
a later date. It is hardly probable
that the coroner's jury will maxe
.much of an investigation, because the
' grand jury, being is session, will
handle the whole matter.
j Late this afternoon Ernest isenhower
and Jesse Morrison were arrested,
charged witn participatiag in
the snooting, and "both were lodged in
jail. It is understood that warrants
Shave been issued for others and more
I arrests are expected to follow.
j During the examination of twenty
or more witnesses by the coroner's
jury to inquire into the death of Sheriff
Hood, t^.ese alleged facts were
brought out:
Clyde Isenhower fired tJ":e first shot
Raleigh Boulware, rural policeman,
was wounded by the final shot of the :
fusillade by Ernest Isenhower! Two
doctors testified that the sheriff received
three wounds in toe stomach;
that it was uncertain whether Jesse
Morrison did any shooting at all.
Coroner E. F. Smith adjourned the
inquest until the second Monday in j
July, the 12th, when a full investiga-j
tion of the affair will be made. J. E. j
Coanwns foreman of the jury.
Sketch of Dead Officer.
Sheriff A. D. Hood, who lost foi6 life
in the court house tragedy here yesterday,
was born in Fairfield county,
near Blythewood, June 26, 1868. At 12
years of age he was left an orphan,
being adopted by iMr. W. J. Crawford.
He first accepted a position witihi the
county chain gang. A few years later
he was elected supervisor, wThich office
he held for two terms. In 1904 foe|

for eleven years. In December, 1908,
he was married to Miss Bessie Broom,
who survives him. He was 47 years
old. With the death of Sheriff Hood
Fairfield county lost its most efficient
officer and the State a valuable and
useful citizen.
courage to the end prove the heroic
mould out of which Sheriff Hood was
built. Judge Wilson expressed the
general opinion wuen he said of him
"would that every sheriff in Souti'a
Carolina were like him and that we
had thousands of such citizens." The
dead sneriff is survived by his wife
and thousands of friends, for there has
never been, a more, popular public ofjficial
in. Fairfield county. He filled the
office faithfully and well for over ten
years, giving up (his life, as Ihe had
spent it, for his people and his 'State,
in the cause of good government, a
sacrifice to the'cause bf law and order. ' a
