    The Early County News 
    • "A Sad Tragedy: On Monday night last, just after dark, our citizens were astounded by the report that Mr. R. W. Davis had shot and killed Judge J. B. Jones. Soon a large number of people were congregated at the place of the tragedy, in front of Henderson Bros'. store. The particulars of the affair are, in brief, about as follows:

      It seems that Mr. Davis had been driving a double team, and when he came into town in the evening he drove to the livery stable, and told the stable boy to rub his horses down good and take care of them until he sent for them, and he would pay him. The cleaning done, the animals were brought to the front of the stable and hitched only a short distance apart. One of the horses being a stallion, and the other a filly, they soon got up a scene that is not so common in so public a place, it being right in front of Judge Jones's house. This seems to have offended the Judge, and he went at once and put the stallion in his own lot. After awhile Mr. Davis sent his negro man, Carson, for the horses, and Carson got another colored man to go into Judge Jone's lot for the stallion. When the Judge saw the horse being brought out of his lot, he went to the negro Carson and asked him by what authority he had taken the horse from his lot. Carson replied that Mr. Davis had sent him for the horse. Judge then told him if he ever took another horse from his lot without permission, he would, "Break his d____d head", and it took his best to keep from doing it now - go tell Mr. Davis to come for the horse himself, he is the responsible party. Judge Jones then passed over to his house, and in about ten or fifteen minutes came back with a knife open in his hand - stabbing fashion - and took a seat in front of Henderson Bro.'s store, holding the knife open in his hand. In a few minutes Mr. Davis walked up, and addressing Mr. E. L. Fryer, the keeper of the stable, why his horses had not been sent to him when he sent for them. Judge Jones rose from his seat and said, "By God, I am the man who wouldn't let the d__m nigger have the horse, what have you to say about it?" To which Mr. Davis replied, "It is true that he is black, but he is a good negro, and I am responsible for him, and my horse too". Judge Jones then said: "If you protect the d__n nigger, you are no better than he is you d___ n_____", just here he approached Mr. Davis with drawn knife. Mr. Davis cautioned him not to come any closer, and shot off his pistol in the air, twice, one of the balls going through the top of the shelter under which the Judge had been standing. At this Judge made some remark about poor shooting, to which Mr. Davis replied, "I didn't want to hit you, Judge." More words then passed between them, when Judge Jones again started for Mr. Davis, heedless of the warning given to him not to come any closer. Mr. Davis then fired a third shot, hitting him in the left breast. The Judge remarked, "You hit me then," and made a few steps toward Mr. Davis, fell and expired almost instantly.

      A coroner's jury was soon summoned, several witnesses sworn, and the substance of what we have stated was given in evidence. The jury returned a verdict of justifiable homicide.

      We heard the testimony and think the jury could scarcely have arrived at a different conclusion from the one expressed in their verdict. It is certainly a very sad affair, and is much regretted by probably every good citizen of the community. A helpless family is left in circumstances calculated to excite the kindest sympathies of all good people in their behalf. We commend them to the mercies of Him who hath promised to be a father to the fatherless and a husband to the widow."

      The deceased had been Ordinary of the county for a number of years, and was re-elected to that position at the late election without opposition. He was also Marshall of our town, and was in the discharge of his duties in that position when he was killed.

      We have not talked with the man who did the killing, but are constrained to believe that he must now have a sad and heavy heart under the reflection that he has brought so much sadness and woe to innocent ones, which he might have avoided by walking away when he saw Judge Jones was not in a condition, mentally, to act with discretion, on account of a fancied insult to his family. How sad the thought that poor human nature is so prone to act on impulse instead of letting reason have sway in times of trial, when we all need the best powers of thought we can command to enable us to act discreetly.

      We have not time nor space to say anything more. We sincerely hope this sad affair may be a lesson to those who are prone to act without due reflection upon the consequences that may follow hasty and inconsiderate action. So mete it be.

      P.S. Since the above was put into type, Mr. Davis has had his trial before the committal court - Justices Fryar and Sirmons presiding. The evidence in the case was patiently heard and commented on by Col. R. H. Powell for the prosecution and Col. E. C. Bower for the defence. After a short deliberation by the Justices, they gave their decision discharging the prisoner. Thus has the matter ended, unless the Grand Jury sees proper to take it up at the April term of the Superior Court."
