\ w8 of a killing at Hhlloh Thurs?
day was received In the city shortly
before four o'clock In the afternoon
and Coroner Flowers, Sheriff J. K.
Bradford and Dr. Carl H Epps left
a few minutes later for the scene off
the killing. Arrived at Shiloh It was
found that Hural Policeman W. E.
McBrlde had shot and killed Willie
M< Faddeti. colored when McFadden
resisted arrest.
Coroner Flowers summoned a Jury
and a coroner's inquest was held right
away. The Jury after hearing the
testimony of four witnesses, who made
practically the same statements, re?
turned a verdict that Willie McFad
den had come to his death by pistol
wounds received at the hands of W.
K. McBrlde and that the shooting was
purely In self-defense.
The testimony as given at the in?
quest was that Mcliride went to the
saw mill where McFadden was work?
ing. He went up to him and after
talking to him a few seconds, put his
hand on McFadden's shoulder. Mc?
Fadden seised a large Iron pipe and
attempted to strike the officer with
this, when McBrlde shot him through
the head, death being almost Instan?
taneous. The ball entered one side
of rhe head and lodged under the skin
on the other side. Those testifying at
the Inquest were, R. W. Green. G. K.
Player. 8. W. Truluck and Isaac Good- |
_ i
The community was somewhat ex- '
cited over the killing, but it seemed
that sentiment was almost entirely
with Policeman McBrlde.

Charleston. Jan. 30..?George S.
Legare, representative in eorgress
from the first South Carolina dis?
trict, died at his home here tonight
after several years of illness. Only
recently, however, was he forced to
retire from his duties at Washington.
Mr. Legare was 43 years old and en?
tered the Fifty-eighth congress.
The funeral arrangements have not
yet been announced
Mr. Legare was born in 1870. He
attended and graduated at the Porter
Military academy, after which he
went to Washington as secretary to
' Congressman George Tillman. He
studied law while in Washington and
graduated in law at Georgetown uni?
versity. Returning to Chahrleston he
took up the practice of law and was
very successful, serving as corporation
counsel for several years. He was
corporation counsel of the city when
he was elected to the Fifty-eighth
, congress. He has served in congress
since that time and had been reelect
ed to his sixth term.
He married Miss Fannie Izlar,
daughter of the late Gen. James
Itlar of Orangeburg. His widow and
four children survive him.
1 The congressman had long been in
111 health. He had spent some time
at Fort Bayard, Aria., only recently
In search of health. He owned a
country home at Bickens and has
spent much of his time there.
I After the campaign of the past
summer he had been living at his
plantation In St. Andrew s parish,
across the Ashley river from Charles- I
Mr. Legare occupied a notable po- 1
sition in the halls of congress. A
member from a Democratic district
and strongly Democratic in hts poli?
tics, he nevertheless enjoyed the con?
fidence, friendship and esteem of his
colleagues on the Republican side of j
the chamber. For a number of years j
Mr. Legare practiced law in Charles- ,
ton. where he made a success at the
