Man Short by Chief Copland Passes Away at City Hall. Tom Wag< s, a farmer who lived in Ben Smith’s district, Gwinnett county, died at the city hall Wed nesday as the result of a pistol wound, the shot being iired by Chief of Police Copeland Saturday night at 1 1 :-(•'> o’clock. It is stated that Oscar Crow, who lives on Athens street, just opposite the city police station, sent word to the police that a burglar was in Ins house, and the chief, together with his men, went to capture the burg lar. Copeland was covering a win dow when W ages appeared with drawn knife, it is said, and the chief ordered him to throw up his hands. Instead, it is stated that Wages leaped through the window and advanced upon the chief, where upon Copeland fired. The hall entered the forehead and passed almost entiely through his head, coming our just above the ear. Medical assistance was quickly summoned. Wages was removed to the city pall and the physicians did all that medical skill suggested for the wounded man. The burglar message was unfor tunate, for to this message possibly the death of Wages is due. Had the police known the true facts, doubtless Wages would have been alive today. It seems that a woman by the name of Summon, who is separated from her husband, occupies a room at the Crow house, and it is said that W ages was a gu st of this wo man . It is claimed by the friends of Wages that when he entered this house he hail considerable money, j. hut a search of the premises re vealed his pocket hook empty. Wages leaves a wife and five - little, children, and it was a sad picture to see the little ones playing about the hall while their father was making a desperate light for life. This terrible tragedy is to he doplored, but under the circum stances it seems to us that no blame should attach to Chief Copeland fbr his part in it. Hhd Wages been at home with Jils ’frail little wife and innocent .’children instead of where he was tips. story would never have been written.
