JAMES BROWN'3 MURDERERS
They Were Two or Bin M 11 H.Mids,
the Crime Fixed Upon Them y a

One of Them complete Thomas
Covington and Elam Josey Rent (
StateBville, Oct. 17. Last Sunday
evening W H. Deaver, of ABhevslle,
arrived in Statesville on the late
train, and on Monday boarded the
train for Catawba. He at once re
paired to the Long Island Mills, the
scene of the recent murder of the late
James Brown', and introduced hims
self aro and in the neighborhood as
an agent of the insurance company
holding a risk on James Brown's
life, and as he had learned that
James Brown might haye committed
suicide, he wanted to take the writ
ten statements of everybody in the
neighborhood. He proceeded to take
the statements, and the farst person
he met who adopt ed the suicide the
ory was R R Blackwood, and by
carefulmanagement of this party he
founCJat Elmore Burriss had made
the statement that he believed that
Elam Josey had killed old man
Brown. Elmore Burriss is a night
hand at the factory, and he was sent
for, and stated that he said he be
lieved Jose had killed Brown; that
whin Mips Essie Brown went to the
Btore door on the morning of the
murder Elam Jo3ey was standing
watching the young lady, and when
she opened thj door Josey jumped as
if he had been shot apparently
knowing what an awful sight would
meet her eyes.
With this statement Mr. Deaver
went to the house of Josey, who is a
laborer in the factory on the night
shif t, and found him at home. He
BUted to Josey that he was represent-
ink. the insurance comnanv and
with him considerably
finally inquired if Josey would
like to know who killed Brown.
Josey replied in the affirmative, and
Mr. Deayer raised himself to his f nil
height, pointed his finger at Josey
and said : "You are the man that
did it." Josey broke kown and in
sobs and tears called upon God to
witness his innocence. The man
was taken before a magistrate, tried
and commited to prison. On the way
to Newton Josey eai 1 he did not
kill Brown but he knew who did do
it "Thomas Covington, a day hand
in the mill, has a key to the store
door. He and I have often gone in
the store at night and taken little
things; but Thomas Covington went
alone the night of the mnrder. The
next day he told me he had to killed
old man Brown.''
Mr. Deaver at once secured Josey's
statement, arrested Coyington, and
tried him brefore a magistrate. Josey
in his statement before the magistr
ate, swore Covington had a key to
the store; that together they had
often robbed it; that on the day . of
the funeral Coyington fook him out
in the woods and confessed to kill,
ing Brown, Btating that he opened
the store door and went in and
turned to go oat when Brown hailed
him. Jumping oyer the counter he
eaid, "Is that ,,yon, Pope?" Then,
"Is that you, Torn?" "When he
called my name, I turned, clinched
with him and knocked him down.
Finding that he had a pistol in his
hand, I wrenched it from him. Mr
Brown said: "That will do, Tom,
you have got me.' But when I got
his pistol he commenced crying
murder; and I shot him. He fell and
I shot him again and again. When
e was dead, I closed the
door and went home."
Covington was asked if he wished
to ask Josey any questions, but was
told that he need not do so if be did
not want to. " Coyiugton asked
Josey if he could not be mistaken in
repeating what he had said to him at
the mill, and was he certain he re
peated all he told him in the woods,
' shd agan: "What time did I tell yon
; I killed him T
The magistrate sent both men to
Newton jail, their guilt being fully
established, and every indication
bowing angry and indignant, out
raged neighbors who wished to take
the law in their own-hands.
Elam Josey is 27 years of age and
married. Thos. Covington is 22 or
" 23 years of age and is also married.

Negro, Writes These Item for Hi
The Wilmington, N. C Herald is
owned and edited by a colored man
a tiue blue Republican. He is op
posed to being sold out to the trait-
ors by the traitors, as is shown by
the following clippngs of his paper
Read what he says:
Messrs. Butler & Co. got badly
cheated when they traded for the
Republican party, unless they
bought on conditions.
The negro must realize that he is
the architect of his own fortune.
Look for he p from no source save
within and overhead. Within him
are the elements that will either
weave his weal or woe.
' Mr, Butler will please explain how
it is he cares bo much for we colors
ed people and then edits a paper
called "The Caucasian ?" If he's in
sympathy with tho Republicans
why not name it the Republican.
The Populist fused Negro bating
ticket must be defeated.
Some few Populists, we learn,
have threatened to give us, as they
term it a "flogging" if we don't
quit telling our 3,000 readers their
duty, etc, at the coming election.
In reply to their threats, I will state
that I expect to fight the ticket to
the last and if needful I will fight
It's expected that on the sixth
day of November every colored
voter will cast his vote for the Re
publican partv, and rather than
support the fusion ticket don't vote
at all. If the Pops solicit your vote
nsk them what law or act have their
forefathers-Messrs. Butier, Kitchen
& Co. ever tried to pass to further
the conditioner the negro race?
We deem it very unfair and un
grateful for a man or party to f or
sake a true and tried friend that
txk them up in their infancy, led
them, sheltered and protected them,
Lew lying traitors to
go and put) on pretensions in order
to get in a State convention to Bell
these very men and their votes to a
set of ex fcukluxes and Populist
fused negri haters, is rediculous.
Fusionism must and shall go.
The manhood of every colored
voter is at stake. The "white-wash-ed"
Republicans of the South have
bargained away their rights and bal
lot without consulting the negro,
and it yet remains for us to say
whether we will sit still, be silent
and allow a handful of "white
washed" Republican traitors to sell
one hundred thousand voters and
their wives and children to the
Populistfused party, whose leaders
and founders are such men as
Messrs. Butler and company, who
have always been the bitterest kind
of Jeffeisonian Democrats and
preached white supremacy. The
Popuist". fused negro-hating ticket
must and shall b6 defeated.
Can the Negro afforcTto vote with
the tail end - of the Democratic
party the fusion ticket, when the
fact is they stand on record as op
posed to all methods that the Re
publican party drafted to raise and
elevate the Negro of America? Be
it understood now and forever
more, that every Negro who votes
the Populist fused ticket is voting
himself, wife and children back into
slavery, and more than that, is vot
ing to disfranchise every member of
our race that can't read and write,
which number is largely in the ma
jority. Ten times to one is it. better
for every Negro to vote the straight
Democratic ticket, whose leaders
and organ say "every man, either
with or without education has a
right to cast his ballot," rather than
vote for a party of ex-kukluxes and
Negro haters, who say, "The Anst
tralian t allot system," or "White
supremacy must rule." Fusionism
must and shall go.
The Presbyterian Home.
We clip the following from the
Charlotte Observer, which will be of
interest to many of om ciaizens :
Rev. Mr. Boyd, superintendent of
the Presbyterian Home, at Barium
Springs, was in the city yesterday.
The object of his visit was to talk
plans with Architect Hook for a
central building, which the regents
haye deemed advisable to build. Mr.
Hook made estimates and plans of
the work, which will be presented tc
No definite way of raising the
nr.ney for the building has been
fixed npon, but the building being
a necessity, the regents believe
that the Church will respond to the
call. The new building is to con
tain chapel, school room, dining
room and dormitories.
Five of . the children have lately
reached the orphanage majority and
will be found homes, and their
places rnppliedby five new children.
The health at the institution, Mr.
Boyd says, is remarkable good.

stage. He was the speaker.
There were a few Pops there and
if any of them have any patriotism
or love of their country they went
away convinced that they are fol

ing a few infernal scoundrels to
carry out a little trade and scheme,
made in secret to adyance the per

The best, fairest, plainest most
honest and candid political speeches
this writer ever heard was delivered
by Mr. Siainons, He held an im
mense crowd for just 2i hours.
Only a tew tired, and chief among
them was Mr. Bell Moody, who is
under the delusion that he has in
telligence enough to represent this
district in the N. C. Senate. He
couldn't see it out. Light was
thrown on the wholesale Bell out and
barter of principles by the few who
are leading him and others by the
ncse, until Moody got dizzy and
Mr. Simmons made everybody en
thusiastic and everybody was ready
to thank God for evidence of enough
conservative, true North Carolinians
to save the State from the ruin of
the cranks and fanatics.
We could not eive a svnormia of

masterly; it was superb. A very in
telligent colored man remarked : "It
I had been a f osionist or a Pop.when

colored man thinks as much of his
political principles as he should and
he will not allow a few traitors to
sell him out.
