1 Dr. Able Wounds Negro Who Drew I Pistol on His ratner. IK ft St. Matthews, Nov. TO.?Dr. L. M. Able, a prominent merchant and t druggist, shot and wounded Jim J Buysk, a negro of unenvitble repu- 1 tation on the streets of St. Matthews 1 to-day. Buyck had used some very severe language to Dr. A. R. Able, i the aged father of the man who did K the shooting. When he was asked s to explain his conduct, Buyck reached i for and drew his pistol. The younger c Dr. Able, standing near by, perceived j his father's danger and fired upon t Buyck. Five shots were fired, four s of which took effect. The wounds i are not thought to be of a serious nature. Buyck was taken charge of and a his wounds given attention. Dr. c Abie and his father surrendered im- 1 mediately to the authorities. -\ ? < Opening of the Pennsylvania Railroad l Station, New York City. < i ????? K The Atlantic Coast Line makes of- 1 ficial announcement that all their 1 & trains will enter the new Pennsylvania railroad station Seventh Ave- 1 nue and Thirty-second street, New * York, on and after November 27th, * and that the West Twenty-third street ( ferry, and the Brooklyn annex ferry 1 will be discontinued on and after that 1 date. i The "Florida and West Indian Limited" will leave from the New York station at 10:16 a. m. and arrive at 2:31 p. m. The "Palmetto Limited" will leave at 3:38 p. m. and arrive . I 1:50 p. m. and the "Coast Line Flori- ( da Mail" will leave 9:30 p. m. and ar- ] rive 5:59 a. m. Upon the inauguration of the "New York and Florida Special," January 9th, that train will leave New York 1:26 p. m., and arrive 4:06 p. m. It will be seen from the foregoing ' that passengers will have consider- . able advantages, not only from the convenience of reaching the station, ; which is centrally located and adja- ^ cent to street car lines, extending to all parts of the city, but in a later departure and an earlier arrival in the " * city. ] The travel to the down town sec- ' tion will be provided by trains from \ the Manhattan Transfer Station, ' lonated at Harrison, N. J., and . . . at which all through trains from f the South will stop. They wili be 5 taken to the passenger station in Jersey City and can reach the lower Man- 1 hattan by the Hudson and Manhattan tubes, or by ferry to Cortlandt, or ( r Desbrosses streets, which service will be continued. Passengers to and from Brooklyn ( will transfer in Pennsylvania station, < to and from Flatbush avenue, Brook- < lyn, via the tubes under the East 1 River, thereby saving much time and ,J annoyance. Under the new arrangement, ef- < fective November 27th, all the Pullman cars operated to and from New ^ York over the Atlantic Coast Line will be electric lighted and equipped with \ / electric fans. The location of the station appeals directly to the (hotel guest, the shop- ; .per, the amusement seeker, the business man, the professional man and every class/of travel to and from New York, over the Atlantic Coast Line, , f.i as the new station is in the very heart of the hotel district, only one block from Broadway, two blocks from ( Fifth Avenue, and one block from the < centre of the retail drygoods section, which is supposed to be the busiest part of New York city. ? " ? PaiiH- Hah^P. union 10 n??c *. ? v ??. v ? * " Union, Nov. 9.?In the election in f this county yesterday on the question * of issuing $75,000 in bonds for a new court house, the vote was 471 for and 449 against, giving a majority of 22 in favor of the issue of the bonds. It was thought four remote precincts would overcome the lead in favor of bonds, but they cast very small majorities against, one of the f* four voting in favor of the issue. So Union county will have a handsome new court house to replace the present one, which was erected in 1825 and has outlived the time when it was adequate for the needs of the people. t Carlisle Fitting School. k President Snyder visited recently the Carlisle Fitting School at Bamberg. He found a fine body of serious-looking young men and women, apparently capable and willing to do the best kind of work. Headmaster and his two assistants. Messrs. Duncan and Betts, would be hard to improve on. They have the ability, the training, the experience, the character, the consecration for their special duties. There is no school in that section of the State better equipped or better manned for high school work. Intelligent, discriminating patrons will find this out as the days go by. Thorough, honest, efficient work and high moral ideals repre/ sent the standard of the school.?S, fin Southern Christian Odvocate. \ RASCAL IS CAUGHT. S'egro Bound Over to Court for Ste? in? Grips.

NEGRO KILLED IN DISPUTE il- Row Over Quarter Ends in Homicide f s Near Will Is ton. ce Aiken, Nov. 13.?Ab a result of an ?n altercation over a month ago, when 1 m William Thompson, colored, was shot t. as by Bub Kelly, also colored, William t F. Thompson died at his home at White t ag Pond Thursday. 1 is. The inquest was held over the ^ ep body Friday, when the particulars, c id so far as possible, were disclosed by F ot one of the eyewitnesses of the af- * e- fair. The place where the shooting is took place was in Barnwell county, ] s- on the outskirts of Williston, and ( is, until notice of the death of Thompson was received by Coroner Johnin son, of Aiken county, nothing of the I ut affair had reached the ears of the of- 1 at ficers of the law. It -seems that the * tie two negroes met near Williston and ( tie Kelly asked Thompson to give him ( id or pay him a quarter, for reasons 1 g- which were unknown to the witness. ^ A. Thompson refused to turn over the ] li- money and a row ensued, in which 3 to Kelly pulled his pistol, the only one j in the crowd, and shot Thompson, j ve The wounded man was carried to his ] s, home at White Pond, in this county, 1 er where he died Thursday. * tie The cause of the trouble over the ^ tie money was not brought out at the j ih trial.

A id ( th Will the case of Paul Franklin be I ed placed in the hands of white attor- j 37 neys? This conclusion is reached fol- s lowing the movements about the ] tr, State house of the negro attorneys < 21 for the negro who has been sentenced ^ adx to hang in Orangeburg county and a ^ lis representative or some Kina 01 pm- i th lanthropic society of New York city. ?8, A white woman called at several offices in the State house during the s: day and asked for the court records. 5,- She was directed to the office of the 1,- clerk of the supreme court. She is- stated to Col. U. R. Brooks that she ia, was to meet Adams and Moore, the neth gro attorneys for Franklin, and that [),- she would like to see the records in er the case. Before she further explained her mission John Adams, one of the >t- negro attorneys, came in.' She held [a, a conference with him in the suth preme court room and then left the building. Alams asked Col. Brooks for a copy of the latest appeal in the Franklin case. He was furnished the n- copy and left the State house. Franklin, the Orangeburg county gg negro, who several years ago killed ri- a constable named Valentine, has Id been before the courts, both federal *S- and State several_times. The Orange"at burg county court sentenced him to hang. There was an appeal to the State supreme court and this verdict i was sustained. The case was later appealed to the United States supreme court. There was a contenan , tion of a constitutional violation in nd the selection of the grand jury which ol_ handed out the indictment against Franklin. The State supreme court Br- . . . , . ke recently gave an opinion ordering a he new day to be set for the execution of Franklin. The attorneys for Franklin ap iur peared before Judge Sease in Orangel0t burg and asked for a new trial on the grounds of after discovered evidence. an The new trial was refused and an )p_ appeal was taken to the supreme aU court. Tlfis appeal is now before the court. ke The representative of the New jn_ York society did not state her busi;ar ness. It is expected that there will be some sort of an announcement as fer to the case within the next few days. ?The State. res Dismissed for Hazing.
