Klnaton Free Press, March 8th.
The Commercial hotel, until recently
run under the name of Hotel Bailey, was

to 1 o'clock.
It was a two-story woodon building
and burned rapidly. No wind was blow
Ing and the fire department bad no diffi
culty In confining the flames to the origi
nal building, although surrounded by
The fire originated in the southeast
corner, probably In thekltchen, from an
unknown cause, and that part of the
building was enveloped In flames before
anyone discovered It. . It was first dis
covered, by a. young lady employed at
the house. Her room was over the
kitchen and she was awakened by the
flames and gave the alarm,'
Landlord Morrill hurriedly sllppe 1 on
his trousers and eqaiand rushed through
the halls banging on doors and shout
ing to the sleeping Inmates to get out as
quickly as possible. Vast volumes of
smoke came rolling up the main stair
way and quickly filled the halls, making
egiess difficult and dangerous. Guests
hastily arose and snatching a few art!,
cles of clothing made a dash for safety.
Borne were so long In getting awake or
stopping to partially dress that exit by
the halls was Impossible, and they had to
let themselves down from the windows
or the front porch. One sound sleeper
had to be dragged out by his feet and
did not have even a pair of shoes. - Mr.
Hargrave and his family narrowly es
caped suffocation and got out with only
what they could pick up as they ran,
Later a trunk containing silverware and
other valuables was dragged out badly
burned, and during the excitement was
rifled by sneak thieves.
A number of daring young men push
ed their way into the looms In the front
of the building and succeeded in throw
ing out a good many pieces of furniture
which were more or leu wrecked In fall

the loss of watches, money, jewelry, etc
after getting themselves out safely, had
the lost articles restored to them by hon

are minus articles of clothing and yalu-

Rountree, of New Tork City. . The loss
Is between $3,000 and $1,000. Insured
for $2,6000. ::c : i . ..
The furniture of the hotel was owned
by 'the proprletors,;Mess. Merrell & Har

$1,5000 with $900 Insurance. They each

The sheriff of this county is informed
by one of his deputies of the murder of a
negro, JohnlHalloway, by Edgar Hicks,
alias Edgar Smith. The details of the
crtmegare given for the first time. It
appears that Hicks' and other negroes
had been drinking all night. The next
day they were gambling In a field, when
Halloway (passed. Hicks wife made a
full statement of the crime, saying that
Hicks and another negro among the
gamblers had planned to kill Halloway.
They called to him to stop and Hicks
tried to get blm to enter his (Hicks')
house. Halloway said he understood
that they had expressed an intention to
kill him. Hicks denied this and declared
he had nothing against Halloway. The
other men left and finally Halloway
went Into Hicks' house. He was - drow
sy and sitting In front -of the fire he
nodded. Hicks went out and brought in
wood and with it an axe. His wife was
in the room. He placed some wood on
the floor and suddently swung the axe
and crushed Halloway's skull. The vic
tim fell on the floor struggling, and
Hicks gave him another blow, which as
his wife described It "straightened him
out." Hicks left at once and went to
the house of bis father-in-law, where he
coolly told the family that he had killed
Halloway and that it required two blows
with an axe to do it.
There was a queer case here today, at
the railway station. A man and his
wife with their seven children were on
their way to a place to work In a cotton
mill. The children were from two years
to fifteen. The man bought two second-
class tickets, declaring most positively
