There will be a regular meeting of Depot Xfght Watchman Killed. He Was Acting: Substitute ami n Nejjro Asked to Be Admitted to Get Warm -Admission Granted, He Shot the 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. Neighbors gaye the name of the negro who shot him as Wes or Will Hampton, a negro about 26 years old, five feet 8 inches high, ginger cake color, black moustache, wear ing derby hat and dark suit of cloths ing. The ticket office was robbed 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 this hour. Neighbors was conscious for prob ably two hours after the ball was cat out, and clearly described his assailant by name aa well as other wise. This is the Becond time the watchman has been shot and the ticket office robbed here in the last twelve months, the same character of attempt haying been made last Christmas. Buckleu's Arnica Salye.
