In Which One Man Loses His Life at
Tuesday a.m at 8;30 a terrible stab
bing affray at Greenwood took place
resulting in the almost instant death of
Jas. Dwyer, a well-to-do resident of the
town. Dwver and Milton Bozark also
a resident of Greenwood, are reported
to have had trouble that evening when
rumor has it, Dwyer had threatened to
shoot Bozark on sight. In the morning
the men met and instantly the trouble
started. Dwyer received four knife
wounds in the abdomen resulting in his
death within twenty minutes. Bozark
was immediately placed under arrest by
the Constable and olaced in custody
there, the intention being to bring him
to this city at night.
Dwyer, the dead man, is reputed to
be a well-to-do citizen of Greenwood
with a large family, leaving a widow
and eight children to survive him.
Bozark, the man who did the killing, is
in needy circumstances leaving a family
of two children and a widow. It is not
known what the circumstances are
which led to the trouble, there being
couflicting reports in circulation. It has
been ascertained that the men were
not drinking men and were not under
the influence of liquor when the un
fortunate affair took place.
From another and different source the
report reaches the Journal that the
wounds which caused Dwyer's death
were not all in the abdomen but that
one thrust penetrated the heart which
was the immediate cause of death.

Bryan vs. Roosevelt.
The editor of the Register makes no
no apologies for being an admirer of
the Great Commoner, Mr. Bryan, no
more than he did for his support of Mr.
Roosevelt in his administration, but in
either case our admiration is con
fined to these gentlemen. The cam
paign up to last week was a tame affair,
until Teddy, with the "big stick." like
the "Fighting Tip" from the Ould
Sod, "always spoiling for a ruction,"
put precedent and presidential dignity
into cold storage, and through the me
dium of an open letter made an adroit
attack upontheother object of our affec
tion, Mr. Bryan, in hopes to advance
the candidacy of his protege, Mr. Taft.
The campaign warmed up - and so did
the editor, and he took sides too. The
fight is over. Mr. Bryan accepted the
challenge, and with the skill of an ex
pert swordsman soon had Mr. Roose
velt on the defensive and making ex
planation for his administration, hitf
own conduct with the Steel Trust and
with the first convict ion under the rebate
law, our own Paul. The retirement
from the field by "big stick" is an
nounced. Mr. Roosevelt has met his
second Waterloo. There are two men
who are championing the people's cause,
and against whom no man dare bring
charges of insincerity : they are Benj.
Tilman and William J. Bryan. Against
j both of these Mr. Roosevelt very fool
i ishly jutted himself and lost. His
zeal for Mr. Taft is very commendable,
but his judgment is to be dejdored. In
trying to help kill a mule he has unin
tentionally badly crippled an clejphat.
