O. Jones, of Columbia. The Balla Only Orase Jonea and a Dea- perate Straggle Ensues The Com batant! Are Parted. i The following account of a fight between R. B. Withers, formerly of this city, and W. C. Jones, of Co lumbia, is taken from the Columbia Herald of Friday : . "Withers has shot Jones. This was the news that startled the town this morning. "Two shots were fired by Wi-.liers, but fortunately Jones was hot hurt. One of the balls grazed the side of Jones' face, and. the other went through his coat sleeve without touching the skin. . The shooting oc curred at the South Side Park Fair grounds. We have been nnableto Interview either of the ' combatant", but the lacts which we give are from reliable men, some of whom were eye witnesses of the difficulty. "Mr. W. C. Jones N the President of the Columbia Driving Park Asso ciation, of which Capt. It. B. Wit hers has been secretary for several months, Withers is a native Kentuckian, but came here from Clarksville. There had been a disagreement between bim and Jones and he had sent in his resignation as secretary to Mr. Jones yesterday afternoon. . "It seems that Jones had gone his security for several hundred dollars in bank ; that Jones expect d With era to give him a mortgage oh his horses to secure it, and that Jones also had a bill against him for the feed of his horses which were stabled at Columbia Driving Park. "It appears, however, that there was a prior mortgage on the horses, and that Mr. Jones was not willing to accept this deferred security. On the other hand Withers had a claim against Jones for salary as secretary, though not as much by a good deal as Jones held against him, as detail ed above. "Matters were in this shape when the trouble occurred this morning. Capt. Withers, Mr. John P. McGaw, Jr., and Mr. Walter Akin were stand ing near the hydrant, not far from the second entrance gate to South Side Park talking. " W. S. Williams and Lucius Brown had Just driven in and passed on to another part of the grounds. Mr, VV. C. Jones rode up on horseback and inquired tor Mr. Williams They told him where Williams was, and he dismounted and came up to the group. "He told Withers he wanted to talk to him on business. McGaw started off. Mr. Jones detained him, telling bim not to leave. Jones and With ers then got into some words about a letter, directed to Withers, which Jones had taken from the postofflce and opened. Withers was offended Jones said it was directed to Withers as secretary, andheoponed it, think ing it was in regard to business con nected with the Driving Association, and when he found that it was pri vate, he put it back, calling witness es to prove the fact. After disputing each others words several times about this matter, they dropped the matter, as It seems, by mutual consent. "Mr. Jones then began talking to Withers about the mortgago above mentioned and a levy that h id been made on it. Ho wanted Withers to make some arrangement of the mat ter, "Withers said, 'Go away from me, I want nothing to do with you, G d d n you.' Jones immediately caught Withers In the collar. With ers drew his pistol from his hip pock ed and Jones grabbed his arm. "In the scuffle which ensued, the pistol was discharged twice by With ers. One of the shots grazed Jones' face, it is thought, though some of the witnesses thought it might have been a scratch received otherwise. The other shot went through the coat sleeve near the shoulder. " Jones finally secured Withers' arm in such a way that the firing ceased "Upon the - first appearance of the pistol ihe by-standers sought safety in the stables, but they now rushed up and parted the combatants. No other damage was done. In the struggle for the pistol they were too busy to hurt each other with their fists. "Both men lingered on thegrouud some time, and further trouble was feared, but friends prevented them from getting together again. No further trouble is feared." SOCIETY. Buck's Barber Shop. Wm.
