A SLICK FIRE BUG.
Man Who Burned Masonic Temple
and Several Other Buildings at
Rocky Mount is at Last Doing
Rocky Mount, N. C, April 28.
George L. Judge, the young man who
was arrested a half-dozen years ago
upon the charge of burning several
buildings in this city, among them
the Masonic Temple, when the city
suffered a loss of about a hundred
and fifty thousand dollars, has con
fessed that he set fire to the Masonic
Temple, and the much conjectured
point in which about half of the citi
zens were divided has been settled.
Judge was by far the slickest fire
bug that this city ever had to deal
with, and there were many that be
lieved he set fire to the Masonic Tem
ple, the Robbins building and other
buildings in the city.
He was taken upon the charge of
burning a stable and feed room at
North Rocky Mount and it was for
this that he was convicted and sen
tenced to five years in the peniten
tiary, though there was little sub
stantial evidence for the man's con
viction and there have been many
that have declared openly and above
board that he was falsely convicted.
