He Killed Henry N. Auton With a Brick
Over a Very Trivial Matter Ten
Years Ago.
Henry Worts, who killed Henry N.
Auton in West End, this city, ten years
ago, surrendered yesterday to Sheriff
Werts has lived in Columbia a good
eal of the time since the commision
f the deed. At the time of the homi.
cide Sheriff Buford was not in office,
and a warrant for Werts' arrest was
placed in his hands last fall. Sheriff
Buford has made two trips to Columbia
since that time in search of Werts, but
both times he missed his man. He got
a letter to him, however, advising him
that it was best that he surrender, as
he intended to catch him and would
catch him. Werts had been working
in one of the mills in Columbia. A few
days ago he went to Greenwood county,
near Dysons, to visit his old home, and
on Friday he came to Newberry. He
remained here until yesterday morning,
when lie went to Sheriff Buford's office
and surrendered.
Werts employed George Johnstone,
Esq., as counsel. Application was made
immediately for a writ of habeas corpus,
and Werts was carried to Greenwood
yesterday by Sheriff Buford to appear
before Judge Chas. G. Dantzler on an
application for bail. In the proceed
ings yesterday afternoon Werts was
represented by Sam H. McGhee* Esq.,
the law partner in Greenwood of Messrs.
Johnstone & Welch.
Though he has lived in Columbia a
good deal of the time, Werts has also
been in other towns working in the
mili. He is a young man. He is se
verely afflicted with consumption.
* The alleged crime with which Werts
is charged was committed in December,
On Tuesday night, the 26th of De
cember, 1893, Reuben McGowan and
Frank Smith, Living in West End, got
into a quarrel. Smith had accused Mc
Gowan of slapping his son and a diffi
culty was brought about. Henry Werts,
who was McGowan's son-in-law, was
present, and went into the fight to aid
McGowan. Henry Auton attempted to
stop the fight. At the coroner's in
quest one of the witnesses said Auton
kicked McGowan in the face.
The fight finally stopped and the par
ties went into McGowan's yard. Au
ton and Werts said some very rough
things to each other and Werts picked
up a brick and hit Auton on the head.
Auton left threatening to have Werts
arrested. Next morning Auton died
from the rupture of a blood vessel
where the missile struck him.
Werts fled on Tuesday night.

Young Man Traveling for a Picture House
Who Says He Has no People and
no Home.
M. C. McCollum, a young man trav
eling for the L1. M. Day company, a
picture enlarging house at Charlotte,
attempted to end his life in his room at
the Crotwell hotel Thursday evening.
He had been sick all day and in the
evening his fever was very high and he
was delirious. The maid went to his
room about 8 o'clock Thursday evening
to see if he needed attention. She en
tered the room, pushing aside a table
which had been placed against the door.
McCollum was lying on the bed, very
bloody. There was a gash on each side
of his neck and one across the left arm
just below the elbow.
A doctor and the police authorities
were immediately summoned, and Chief
Harris and Dr. James K. Gilder vpnt
to the scene. The wounds were not
serious and were soon dressed by Dr.
Gilder. The wounds have almost en
tirely healed, but the yo ung man is still
confined to his bed with fever.
When questioned McCollum said that
if he cut his throat he didn't know 1.
That was all that could be got from
him. He said that he had no home and
no relatives, but that he was not in bad
circumstances and there was no reason
why he should wish to (lie.
The only weapon found in the room
was a small pen knife and this was in
his trousers' pocket on the otherside of
the room. The knife was (lull, with a
big gash in the blade.
McCollum is receiving good attention
and kind treatment.
And Benson Brooks, Colored, Is'Peppered

Chief Harris peppered Benson Brooks,
colored, with No. 8 shot early Sunday

Since then he has been on the dodge.
Sunday morning before daylight Chief
Harris discovered that he was in Nora
Collins' house and he went to the house.
taking Policeman Bedenbaugh with him.
Mr. Bedenbaugh went into the house
and Brooks jumped out of a window.
The Chk ' went to the other side of tht
house and seceing Brooks fleeing ordered
him to stop. Brooks kept on and the
Chief fired at. him with a sho(.-gun, ihe
shot taking effect in both legs. Brooks

Crowd Numbered About 3,000 Persons.
Very Pleasant Day for the Friends
of Ntwberry College.
The annual reunion of the alumni,
students and friends of Newberry Col
lege, for Newberry and Lexington
counties, was held at Little Mountain
on Friday. The crowd was about as
large as for several years past, mum
bering in all probably three thousand
persons. Two hundred and seventy-five
tickets were sold from Newberry.
The day was very pleasantly spent.
Every section of Newberry and Lexing
ton counties, and many other counties
in the State, and other States were
represented *among the alumni and
students present and old college friend
ships were renewed. Since the last
reunion at Little Mountain several have
crossed the shadowy lic.9 and their ab
sence was noted with pain. Every sur
viving member of the class of nineteen
hundred and two, which includes all
save one, was present, and many of the
other classes were well represented.
But the crowd was by no -neans con
fined to students and former students.
The crowd at Little Mountain on Fri
day had only one limit. Every person
who was there is a friend of the college.
Old people and young people and mid
dle aged were there-the elders dis
cussing old times, the young people
discussing the weather and other things.
The weather was a very fruitful topic.
For it was warm, very warm. The
mercury got a good start early in the
day and kept crawling up. The sun
shone fiercely and the mountain breezes
went out of business. But sparkling
v ater flowed from historic springs and
the people philos6phically consoled
themselves with the thought that ice
cold lemonade is good for the health in
the good ol summer time, any way.
Several earnest and thoughtful ad
dresses in the interest of education
were delivered. The first speaker was
Mr. B. W. Wessinger, followed by
Prof. S. J. Derrick and Col. E. H- Aull.
After dinner Prof. E. B. Wallace,
superintendent of education for Rich
land county, spoke. Dr. George B.
Cromer, president of the college, made
a short address also. The speeches
were received with good attention.
Many of those present brought picnic
dinners with them. A very excellent
barbecue dinner was served )y Mr.
A. N. Boland.
The Little Mountain Reunion Asso
ciation elected the following officers
for another year
President, Prof. S. J. Derrick.
Vice-President, lon. 1). Frank Efird.
Secretary, W. Aug. Shealy.
Treasurer, W. A. Counts.
The Position of Dean of the Lutheran The
ological Seminary of the United
Synod, South.
Dr. A. G. Voigt has accepted the
posit,ion of (lean of the faculty of the
Southern Theological Sem inary, to suc
ceed the Rev. J. A. Morchead, who re
signed to accept the presidlency of Roa
noke College, Salem, Va. This position
wvas tendleredl Dri. Voigt at the recent
meeting of the board of (directors held
in Charlotte.
Trhe news of Dr. Voigt's acceptance
wvill be received with a gm~at deal of
p)leasure throughout the Southern
Church. D)r. Voigt is one of the ablest
men in the Church and his connection
wvith the seminary will lend very mate
rially to the wveight and influence of
that institution, and consequently to the
entire Church.
Dropped Dead.
