Case Will be Called at Grays

Perhaps Tuesday

Defendant Charged with Murder of Burrell Bush Last Spring - The man had quarreled over a marriage

Constitution Bureau, 468 Second Street. Macon, GA. October 14th (Specials - Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning, the charge of murder against Alonzo Haddock will taken up Jones Superior Court, at Grays, and before the end of the week it will be known whether he is to answer before the law for the killing of Burrell Bush, at Haddocks, GA, last spring when two quarreled over the marriage of the marriage of a daughter of Burrell and brother of Haddock. [All the other articles on this case that was reported in the Atlanta Constitution read it was a younger sister named Mary to Haddock and her husband Edmond Bush, who was a son of Burrell.]

The county was well stirred up over the affair at the time and feeling ran deep. Since Haddock was thrown into jail, the matter of a bond has been up and this was fixed so that he had opportunity of freedom until a hearing, but It was not until a sum of  $10,000 was made good. Solicitor General Joseph Pottle, of Milledgeville, will have charge of the prosecution. Judge John P. Ross, of Macon, has been employed to assist Solicitor Pottle in the prosecution. Haddock will be by a law at Grays, Court opens at Grays tomorrow, but It is not probable that the civil branch will be disposed of 'before the middle of the week. The Haddock case will be the one around which will center all the interest of the session. Strong in Haddocks favor at the time of the killing enabled him to secure his bondsmen early and there are indications now that he will not have in escaping a sentence for murder. Friends of the deceased man and of his family will tie the chief prosecutors.


Mrs. Newsome, Guardian of Mary Haddock Bush, Weary of Life.

The Killing of Bush Stirs Community

Mrs. Bush is so Disturbed Over the Affair. That She

 Was Only Prevented by Active Work from Taking Her Own Life

Constitution Bureau. 467 Second Street, Macon, GA.

March 23 (Special.) - As a result of the killing of Burrell Bush by Alonso Haddock, at Haddock station, yesterday morning - fully a dozen families are incensed, the community is terribly wrought, up and Mrs. A. F. Newsome, the guardian of Mary Haddock Bush, the pretty 16-year-old brunette sister, had twice attempted to end her life. Soon after the tragedy on the station house platform Mrs. Newsome walked boldly in front walked boldly front of a moving train on the Georgia Road with manifest purpose of allowing the train to end her life. She was saved in the nick of time by Mail Carrier Bonner, who seeing her dangerous situation, snatched her out from in front of the locomotive. But not satisfied with this failure, and soon after she was allowed to return to her home in Haddock Station from the depot, she secured a revolver in her own home and fired a shot into her left shoulder. The ball ranged too high to inflect serious injury, but the woman is now being treated by physicians, and she will recover. this time members of the family saved her. Mary Haddock Bush is at the home of G. P. Bush, brother Edward' Bush, the young husband. In a serious condition as a result the shock attending - the the tragedy, and the widow of Burrell Bush is also prostrated at the home of her daughter. Mrs. J. J. Connell. Both families reside on Fourth street. They will not talk of the difficulty causing the tragedy, nor of the male of the two families. The funeral of Burrell Bush was conducted from the Connell residence this afternoon. Rev. W. H. Budd officiating. the body was interred in Riverside. The remains were brought to Macon late last night and remained at the undertaking establishment of Jesse B. Hart.

Edward Haddock is a fireman on the Georgia road and has paid attention to the orphan sister of Alonzo Haddock for some time. Her sister, Mrs. Bush, has charger of her and assumed responsibility for her conduct. this was evident when the tragedy of yesterday occurred. It was she who accompanied the two young persons to the office of Justice Mayfield here on Wednesday afternoon when the wedding ceremony was performed. Long before the wedding bitter feeling had been expressed on both sides, but it was supposed that this would end the affair, and the shooting was a surprise to those most intimate.


Conversed with Friends

Alonzo Haddock conversed with his friends at Haddock only a few minutes before he attacked Bush and he seemed cool. Bush, it is said, had made several threats which had been taken up by Alonzo Haddock and these led to the tragedy. Haddock was said to have warned Bush to defend himself before opening fire. Bush was then shot from behind. One shot entered into the upper left shoulder. When he turned another shot struck him in the right breasts. When he fell another was fired into his open mouth and into her into a hand. 

Haddock, uninterrupted by those who witnessed the tragedy from the train and the station, took both weapons, walked in the town, marshal and later went with him to jail in Gray's Station. He said after becoming a prisoner that he fired in self defense. Further, statements have been withheld by the attorneys. Haddock is superintendent of Stuart Davis' farm at Haddock, and is married. His wife has since the affair been in a serious condition as a result of the shock.

The general expression at Haddock Station today is that the slayer of Bush was acting upon reasonable grounds, and it was stated by leading citizens that he would be able to make his reason justifiable when tried. The married occurred under such conditions as caused remarks to pass which reflected upon both the girl and Edward Bush. Both Edward Bush and the young lady are well known here in the community of their childhood. Their attentions to each other here caused difference for several months and resulted in a demand on the part of the brother that the marriage occurred, and the immediate family of Miss Haddock also interposed in her behalf.

The father of young Bush interposed in his behalf, defending him against assertions made from time to time, and when the marriage came as a result of the long contention the old feeling was aroused anew to such extent that the threats building up to yesterday's tragedy were made.
