TROUBLE IX BARNWELL. :
A Negro is Killed After Shooting j ^ White Man. Barnwell, Sept. 19.?As the result of the probably fatal shooting of ^ Hewlett Bates, a white man, by a ne- ^ gro, Adolphus Jackson, and the sub- 01 sequent killing of the negro near ( Dunbarton, in this county, yesterday. ' it is feared that there may be general te rioting unless the officers of the law are able to cope with the situation and quickly get it under control. The c* trouble started, it is said, when Bates, ?* together with two other men, went to arrest the negro, who, with an Qc oath, making the statement that he "wofild die and go to hell before he ^ would be arrested," shot Bates in the c| right side in the neighborhood of his 61 lung. There are two stories as to the H kiiiiner of the negro, one being that 3' he was shot by Bates while the latter cc was lying on the ground, the other that Bates's companions did the kill- e* ing. Tj Physicians were summoned from Barnwell and Ellenton, but they gave ei little hotfe of the wounded man's recovery. Preparations were made yes- cl terday afternoon to carry Bates to an Augusta hospital this morning, b* should he still be alive, and he is now fc in the hospital. w Indignation over the shooting was high in Dunbarton yesterday after- pi noon and last night and that there tr may be a general race riot there is m not at all improbable, as the negroes in in that section are said to be"bad." b( In response to a telegram received ln this morning, Sheriff F. H. Creech b< and a deputy left in an automobile cr for the scene of the tragedy. It is n< hoDed that they will be able to con * trol the situation and avert further trouble. ^ , m Petition to Save Robber Husband. ac Pi fa Atlanta, Sept. 18.?A unique plea to save the fair name of a little baby which has not yet come into the bl world is being made by Mrs. O. C. Roddy, the young wife of the famous c? diamond robber who figured in the er Gilsey trunk case and is now serving a| a six months sentence in the Atlanta u< jail. H Mrs. Roddy is to become a mother scon. She says that she would give ls her life rather than to have the child. n] born while its father is in jail, and Sl she is circulating a petition, couched ein the most pathetic language, urging judges and court officials to aid her in procuring a pardon or parole for her husband. , Roddy and his wife are both young e( and. refined people. They were still bride and groom when the man, un- bl able to make the money he needed, yielded to temptation and stole the p, Gilsey diamonds. Mrs. Roddy has b( been loyal to him through his trial ir and subsequent imprisonment. * COLLETON NEGROES RAISE ROW. e' Interfere with Constable at JacksonSt boro in Conveyance of Prisoner. p' Walterboro, Sept. 18.?On Satur- 111 day morning at Jacksonboro,, H. ^ Hodges made an attempt to arrest a' Rufus Smith, a negro, who was a charged with refusing to pay his poll n< tax. Smith resisted arrest and was st shot by Mr. Hodges, the bullet in- ^ flicting only a flesh wound. Smith ^ then submitted to airest and was ^ placed in the lock-up at Jacksonboro. ? Monday Mr. Hodges attempted to N bring the negro to' Walterboro to n place him in jail, and also to secure 11 for him medical attention. The ne- p" > groes of the community assembled 1E rn anH resisted the taking of the negro to jail, and as a result Mr. Hodges a had to leave him in the lock-up at p' Jacksonboro. He came on to Walter- 01 boro and got Deputy Sheriff Benton ^ #to return with him, and they brought 01 / the negro up Tuesday, and also Reid White, another negro, who intetfered with the constable in the dis- a? T charge of his duty, and was instrumental in inciting the negroes to p] resist the effort to bring Smith to ia jail. ? ^ w GRAND JURY BRINGS CHARGES, d EC Affairs of Lexington County in Bad ai Shape, Says Report. & rr Lexington, Sept. 20.?Perhaps the ? most interesting and sensational re- w port that has ever been made by a " grand jury in this county was pre- n seated to Judge S. W. G. Shipp by e' the Lexington grand jury, when it a had completed its business late yes- s terdav afternoon. The report charges | 1( that the county chain gang is being run in a very extravagant manner; that in some instances claims are G paid "without the proper probate, as is required by law; that the road inspectors have been derelict in their duty; that the roads and bridges of C the county are in a bad way and the h people are negligent in the matter o. of working the roads; that liquor is A being sold in violation of law by the tl so-called social clubs of the county, o: and many other charges of a sensa- d ' tional and serious character are set tl out in the presentment. tl TRIPLE TRAGEDY IX 'FRISCO. an and Wife Killed by Former's ? Brother who Then Slew Himself. San Francisco, Sept. 18.?Arthur all, known here until to-day as Artur Knable, shot and killed his other, James J. Hall, in the latter's )wn-town office late to-day and then ent to his victim's apartments, fif- , en blocks away, killed Mrs. James Hall and committed suicide. The tragedy brought the first disosure to friends of the family here : the relation of the two men. Family quarrels are said to have tused the shooting. j Arthur Hall, who was 20 years old, as an employee of the San Fransco Importation Company, a subdiary concern of the St. Francis ( otel, of this city. James J. Hall, 5 years old, was manager of the impany. Thp piripr Hall was slain while tel )honing to the office of the hotel ] he conversation was interrupted by ' ie snap of the receiver on Hall's id. "Hall has hung up," said the hotel erk to his assistant. After a wait of a few moments a ] ill boy was sent to Hall's office and 1 iund him dead on the floor, a bullet ound near his heart. Meanwhile, the slayer was ap oaching the Hall apartments on a j olley car. Occupants of the apart- ] ent house heard two revolver shots < Mrs. Hall's room. They found the i )dies of Mrs. Hall and her brother,-law on the floor. Mrs Hall had j ien shot through the head. No out- ( y had been heard and there were ( " Af o ofrncyclia ) luui^atiuuo v/i. u. tfKi uq0iv t It is believed the Hall brothers j mcealed their relationship to avoid j fficulties with the hotel manage- ( ent, which might have arisen on j :count of the elder Hall giving em- ( oyment to a member of his own . .mily. j While the quarrels between the ] others, said to be for the most part < jout trivial matters, frequently . Lused comment among other hotel < nployees, the nature of the dis- ] jreement which precipitated- to- ] ly's tragedy is not known. Arthur all was melancholy and erratic, his i iosyncracies having been caused, it 3 said, by a blow on the head about ( ine years ago. Friends believe he 3 iddenly became insane and that this j [plains the triple killing. Federal Aid for Roads. When the federal government was >rmed and the constitution prepar1, one of the functions reserved for le government was the authority to iiild and maintain post roads , irough all the States. Once or twice grhaps some little movement has sen made towards carrying this idea tto execution. A bill making appropriations for le postoffice department lately passd, carries five hundred thousand ollars to buna some preliminary ;retches of post roads for the purbse of observing how much more lileage may be made in the rural slivery by one man than over the verage roads they now exist. Such sum of money would of course do othing but provide an experimental ;retch of road in a few localities, hese experimental roads are to be iiilt where the county or State is 'illing to provide twice as much toney as the government provides. , evertheless, it may be the begin-, ing of the government's undertakig in the way of post roads as imDrtant as as the government's work t building harbors and waterways, en million dollars a year would be very small sum of money towards atting all the post roads in good -der even where some local help as obtained from the State, county r town. According to the terms of le bill, a State or county would ave to spend twice as much money . 3 the government would spend, hus, if the government would apropriate and spend ten million dolirs, the States and counties in which le expenditures would be made ould have to put up twenty million | ollars, thus making a total of thirty ' lillions annually by the government . Qd all the States and counties toether. At five thousand dollars a die this would give the United tates about six thousand miles of ell finished macadam highways, or s equivalent, annually. This would ot bear heavily upon any particular lement or locality, and would probbly lead to an increased rate of rowth such as the benefits would jveal.?Edgefield Chronicle.
