Watchman. Who Afterwards Died.
Statesville, Dec. 12 A mur
derous negro took the life of a white
man at the station of the Southen
Railway Company in Statesville this
morning about 4 o'clock. At 3;30
a m. the regular watchman started
oyer to the city to see a physician,
leaving in his place temporarily a
young man by the name of W E
Neighbors, 28 yera old and unmar
ried. Very soon thereafter a negro
called at the door and remarked to
Neighbors that. he was very cold and
wanted to come in and warm him
self. Neighbors wa3 standing in
the telegrapn office, where there
was a comfortable fire in the stove,
and at first declined to let the
negro in, but was persuaded finally
to open the. door. The nero at
once fired upon him, and the ball, a
38 in eize, penetrated Neighbors'
left breast and came out just under
the shoulder blade in the back.
Neighbors grabbed tne negro and in
the struggle the pistol fell to the
ground. The four other cartridges
rolled our, but the negro secured the
pistol first and Neighbors repeated,
running across the street to thellenrv
House, a notel near by, falling un
conscious at the door just as he suc
ceeded in arousing the inmates. He
was taken in and cared for. Dr,
Henry F Long was summoned
promptly and afterward joined by
Dr. Thomas E Anderson, but Neigh
bors had received his death wound
and died about noon today.

negro who shot him as Wes or Will

old, five feet 8 inches high, ginger

either by the murderer or his con
federates. The cash drawer was
pulled from the counter and carried
up the track some distance, where it
was found this morning. The rail
road company only lost 9,30 in
money, as all the money had been
taken out of the ticket office and put
in the safe the night before except
some small change. The thieves
did not seem to care anything for
tickets as none were stolen.
The chief of police, Mr. Henry,
and Policeman Morgan were
promptly on the'scere and instituted
the necessary measures to apprehend
the negro, but he is still at large at
