Kirkendall, an alleged moonshiner, at Moore's station, 12 miles south of here, this afternoon surrendered to the authorities there to-night and is being brought through the country to the Spartanburg jail. A telephone message from Moore's says Kirkendall can not live. He is wounded in the chest and abdomen with buckshot. The federal officers who destroyed a still alleged to belong to Kirkendall near Moore's this week say he has long been regarded H as a blockader and before he moved to Moore's two years ago was a resident of the "dark corner" in Greenville county. His case was to have come up before United States Commissioner Atkinson here to-morrow morning, and Elmore Wright was summoned to appear as a witness. It is stated that Kirkendall shot at Wright with a pistol at Moore's yesterday, but the ball passed through Wright's clothing without inflicting jEL\ a wound. To-day the men met .at Moore's > * again and Kirkendall is said to have attempted to shoot Wright again, but was prevented from doing so by his wife, who was with him. Wright was not armed, but ran into a store nearby and seized a shotgun, which he fired inflicting the fatal wound in Kirkendall's breast. YOUNG HOWE ARRESTED. ,-r _ Youth Who Shot and Killed His ; ; V\ Cousin, in Saluda Jail. Saluda, Oct. 13.?The young man Rowe, who some time ago shot and killed Miss Rowe, his cousin, near here, and then shot himself, inflicting, as was then thought, a mortal tap wound, has been arrested on a warrant charging him with murder and ?is now in Saluda jail to answer that charge. | It will be recalled young Rowe de ; liberately raised his "unloaded" shotgun, pointed it in the face of his r cousin, told her to take down her *v hands and pulled the trigger, shootP ing her in the mouth, killing her instantly. He then ran around the house and >*< ' broke his gun against the chimney *V and tiien begged some of those who fc'v, were present to shoot him. No at' tention was paid to this request and he picked up a gun of a friend who was present and after loading it went y/ behind the house and deliberately 1 nViarorO tOQ T*1 P* ftWJlV SilU L iiiiiiOCXl y lu^ VUUi ^ V VVM* ?? ? ? ^ nearly all of his face. No one / thought he could possibly live, but some money was raised and he was sent to the Augusta hospital. A few days ago he wa? able to come home, although the wound is by no means well and his face presents a frightful appearance. When he came home the warrant was issued charging him with murder. The young man claimed the shooting was accidental. f ' COLLETON CONTEST DECIDED. rei , ' ? J. O. Griffin Remains the Nominee for Supervisor. > Colurpbia, Oct. 17.?J. O. Griffin ? remains the nominee of the Democratic party for supervisor of Colleton county. , The Supreme Court to-day filed its decision in the case of Griffin vs Moore, sustaining the State Demojj? cratic executive committee in its aci: v ' tion in thig case, and holding that no error of law was committed. The decision is as follows. "Upon a petition herein a writ of certiorari was issued by Associate Justice C. A. Woods, directed to the State Democratic executive committee, requiring that committee to cerV > tify to this court their proceedings in the matter of the contest between J. E. Moore and J. C. Griffin, candied dates for the office of supervisor in the county of Colleton. The committee having certified their proceedings /?r>nrf court. havine heard W WW* V) w**v WW ?. w ? w _ ] argument thereon, is of the opinion r 7 that the contestee, J. 0. Griffin, com\ r s plied with the statute of the State, and the constitution and rules of the Democratic party in filing his pledge -* and statement of expenses, and that ^ no error of law was committed by the State Democratic executive committee. "The court, therefore, adjudges that the return to" the writ is sufficient and that the proceedings herein be dismissed." This ends one of the most warmly waged contests that the Democratic party hag ever had in this State. The election for supervisor in Colleton was very close between Griffin against Moore, there being a majority of 160 for J. O. Griffin, who was declared the nominee by the county Democratic committee. Moore contested the election on the ground that Griffin had not filed a statement of his expenses before the second primary, though he had filed a statement before the first primary, another after x the first primary and a third statement after the second primary. The county Democratic executive commit* ' - A 166 Q6ClQeQ lliai vrnmu v> tt? cicuitu on the ground that he had complied with the law, and this decision was upheld by the State Democratic committee on appeal. Then a writ of certiorari was obtained from Associate Justice Woods and the proceedings reviewed by the Supreme Court, which now sustains the county and State committees, and Griffin remains the nominee for county supervisor of Colleton.

Court of Sessions to Review Case. Darlington, Oct. 15.?Mr. Thos. I. Rogers, representing Z. P. Wright, who was arrested and lodged in jail at Bennettsville, charged with having burned his store a few days ago, appeared in Darlington this afternoon to obtain the consent of Solicitor J. Monroe Spears to have Wright transferred to the State Hospital for the Insane, Probate Judge Milton McLaurin, of Marlboro county, having declared Wright to be an insane person and a fit subject for admission to the Hospital for the Insane, but Solicitor Spears refused to consent, holding that if Wright is insane the matter should be adjudicated by the Court of General Sessions, which will be in session there next week. This apparent conflict between the Probate Court and the uourc 01 ijenerai sessions in me matter of lunacy is one that is constantly occurring and Wright's case will probably bring the matter to some definite. shape. Irby to be Tried Soon. Spartanburg, Oct. 15.?John Irby, the alleged assailant of Miss Lilia Dempsey will be tried at the regular term of Court, which convenes two weeks hence. He will be brought to Spartanburg from Columbia, where he was taken for safe keeping last Monday, under the escort of an entire-military company.

Up in West Virginia it appeals to be expensive to sell a man more whiskey than he can carry internally and then turn him adrift. The case of Dinah J. Pennington, suing for her children, against C. D. Gillespie, a saloonkeeper, near Hendricks, W. Va., was decided recently by the jury awarding the plaintiff $600. At a previous term of court Mrs. Pennington sued and obtained a verdict for $800 for the loss of her husband. Pennington was killed near the saloon, and Gillespie was sued as the man who sold the whiskey on which Pennington became intoxicated. A Distressing Acident.

Motorman Jesse Harrison Held by the Coroner'? Jury. Greenville, Oct. 16.?Jesse Harrison, a motorman in the employ of the Greenville Traction company, was was held by the verdict of the coroner's jury at the inquest over the dead body of Fred Ruby, the young Englishman who was shot at the carnival grounds Thursday night. The verdict of the jury was to the effect that Ruby came to his death from the wounds inflicted by Harrison. Ruby's home is in England and he was helping to support his widowed mother. A cablegram was sent to his mother in England to-day notifying her of her son's death. Ruby was a quiet, inoffensive fellow and his death is greatly deplored here. It is said that Harrison was intoxicated when he fired the fatal shot. The carnival authorities will probably bury the body here in Christ church cemetery, the dead young man being of Episcopal faith. The English consul has been notified. .v-t *' ' i. . i * v.
