MURRAY A STORM CENTRE.
i't Negro Ex-Congressman a Fugitive
ke From Justice. 1
t? Gov. Ansel has received another
by appeal for leniency upon the negro
)1_ G. W. Murray, who has been convictin
ed of forgery and is a fugitive from
rs justice. . There is also against him a
?' charge of perjury.
be In 1904 Murray, an ex-congress>y
man and a negro of means, was
th convicted of forgery. When the suly
preme court decided against him,
Murray fled the State and forfeited
of to the county his bond of $2,500.
Sometime ago his whereabouts
were learned and Gov. Ansel was
asked for requisition papers to bring
Murray back from Chicago. The
I governor of Illinois has not declined
_ to honor the requisition, but he has
st held the matter in abeyance tempoT_
rarily. In the meantime petions have
" been sent to Gov. Ansel asking him
to recall the requisition papers. Ex
^ tra papers have also been filed.
^ The Sumter county men who signed
p the petion received are: E. E. Rembert,
W. H. Seale, H. J. Harby, W.
jD A. Bowman and H. J. McLaurin, M.
D. The petition says in part:
" W. A. Bowman, one of the underJd
signed, was foreman of the jury
J(j which convicted Geo. W. Murray; W.
d H. Seale was supervisor of Sumter
county at the time of the trial and
d conviction of Murray, and the other
undersigned are large property own- 1
ers in Sumter county.
"Murray's whereabouts were
>d known, but he was allowed to forfeit
[a his bond, pay the same and stay away
7Q with the tacit understanding that he
was not wanted in Sumter county.
"We now represent to your exr_
cellency that the best citizens of Sum}(l
ter county do not want Murray
brought back here. Without com
el ment upon the question as to his con,0
viction, the fairness of the charges
rl or anything of that sort, it appears
)y to us that it would be for the great
j disadvantage of the white people of
je Sumter county to bring Murray back
ir and have him undergo his term of
imprisonment. If this is done, Murray
will be looked upon in the light
of a martyr by the negro population."
Charged With Murder.
ty Aiken, Nov. 8.?Arthur Clark, a
e- negro, charged with murder in this
county in 1906, has been arrested and
is is now in the Aiken jail to await trial,
is Clark was arrested in Savannah some
is | days ago and Sheriff Rabon went
down and got the negro and brought
to him to Aiken Sunday night. He is
a- charged with the murder of Phillip
=r Thomas at North Augusta, in Decemie
ber, 1906. Thomas was shot by
ia Clark at the house of Minnie Parker,
i- in North Augusta, and died several
r- days later. The records of the county
show that the inquest was held
e- ! over the body of Thomas on Decemid
j ber 17, 1906, and the shooting octn
curred several days previous, as he
>n ! did not immediately die after being
