The White Husiare, thirteen in

biggest hit, with the exception of

Killed by Accident cs Still is Raided.
Benson, May 15 John Den
ning was shot and instantly killed
Sunday night in a raid on a still
whioh h?, H, M. Lucas and Gtorge
Williams are saii to have been
operating. Denning s death, de
spite the faot that be was resist
ing arrest, was accidental, the fa
tal wound being inflicted when
Deputy Marshall George F. Moore
stumbled and fell and his pistol
was accidentally discharged.
Accompanying Deputy Marshal
Moore on the raid were Possemen
Claud Dixon and Willis Potter.
The still was looated on Black
river, two miles north of Dunn.
When the officers closed in on the
plaoe Williams jumped behind a
large tree where a gun was stand
ing, causing the officers to believe
that he was going to shoot.. Den
ning advanoed toward' Deputy
Moore drawing a pistol frojabS
hip pocket. At this moment
Moore fell and as he did so his
pistol accidently went off, the ball
pieroing Denning through the left
breast and killing him instantly.
Lucas, who had run as the officers
radvanoed, was oaptured by Posse
President tapts Charlotte Program.
President Wilson has accepted
the Charlotte program for the
twentieth of May up to 2 o'olock.
He wants to be free after that
time. That will give the Queen
City a fine day with the President.
Mr. Wilson dees not want to tire
himself out; he has hard work
ahead of him.
There is no longer any doubt
that tbe President will go to North
Caro.ina unless some cew foreign
crisis arises to change his present
plans. Senator Overman and Sec
retary Dmiels will go to Char
lotte with the president. Repre
sentative Page is tied up on the
appropriation bill and oannot go.
Senator Simmons is uncertain aa
to whether or not he will go.
