TWO KILLED AND TWO WOUNDED IN FAMILY ROW
Vidalia, Ga., June 6- W.M. GALBRAITH , an aged man, dead and his son-in-law, by the name of TIPPETTS, CICERO MATTHEWS and his son, FRED MATTHEWS, are not expected to live as the result of a shooting melee this morning at Center Church, near Vidalia, in Toombs county, according to meager reports received here.
A brother of the dead man, TOM GALBRAITH, and the latter's son-in-law, named BOOTH, disappeared after the shooting. TIPPETTS and FRED MATTHEWS are in the hospital at Vidalia and their condition is reported to be critical. Cicero Matthews is at his home in a condition too dangerous to be removed.
Differences in CHURCH MATTERS, is understood, had led to bitter feeling between the Matthews and Galbraith families. This breach between the families , it is said, had existed for years.
