THROUGHOUT THE PALMETTO STATE
MR. W.E. PORTER, a prominent liveryman of Conway, was shot and instantly killed Wednesday afternoon by J.F. BORUM, town marshal. Borum went to Porter's livery stable and ordered a negro boy employed there to follow him. Porter wanted some information about such a pre-emptory proceeding and as the result of a quarrel that followed, Borum knocked Porter down with a club. Porter went after a pistol and as he was returning with the weapon Borum began firing. Porter fired one shot and missed. Borum continued to fire until Porter was killed.
