John Williams, the aged murderer of
Senator Hoop, who was to have been
hanged at Culman today, Williams
seized a section of the iron pipe which

Williams said he rftilized that the
removal from the Inrmingham jail
meant his death and as he had to die

Finally, a quantity of amonla was

were able to handcuff him.

JUDGE PARKER ON CAMPAIGN
Discusses Political Situation in New
York State—Talks of Mr. Hearst and
Utica, N. Y., July.—Former Judge
Alton B. Parker, in an interview, dis
cussed the coming state election. He
declared the Democratic party was
rich in men who could fill the office of
governor and mentioned a number but
omitted Mr. Hearst. When asked for
the reason of the omission, Mr. Parker
said that Mr. Hearst had declared he
intended accepting the nomination of
the Independence League and that if
nominated by that party it would be
on a platform expressing the prin
ciples Mr. Hearst believes in and that
there would be no deal or bargain
with the leaders of any political ma
Mr. Parker was reminded of the cur
rent belief that representatives of the
Independence League had been openly
- striving for the control of the Demo
cratic caucuses in order to secure del
egates to the Democratic convention
favorable to Mr. Hearst and that some
such delegates had been elected; and
that the League was organized to com
pel the Democratic party to accept Mr.
Hearst as its nominee.
Mr. Hearst is too shrewd a man"
said Mr. Parker, "to believe it possible
that the Democratic convention will
ever be made up of delegates so ab
solutely pussilanimous as to surrender
to one demanding that the party
deliver up to him the honor and power
he covets, or suffer defeat"

A Big Crowd at the Baptist Orphan

Yesterday was a good day at Mocks

school pinnic of the Baptists of Da- (
vie county, in behalf of the Thomas-!
They have a large board arbor, which i
will hold two thousand people and it'
was estimated there were fully that j
many people on the ground. Rev. C.'
S. Cashwell, who is now the pastor of
the Mocksville Baptist church was the
toriginator of this picnic, and he has
made it a great success. |
Gov. Glenn had promised to be pres
ent, but official duties prevented his
attendance. H& sent as a substitute,
Mr. S. H. Eller, Esq., of Winston-Sa

chapter of orphans was present which
added greatly to the pleasure and en
joyment of the occasion
Mr. J. H. Tucker, Esq., of Asheville,
Rev. J. M. Dunnawy, of Spencer and
Rev C. A. Jenkins, of Statesville, were
also on the program, but failed to
Speeches were made by Rev. M. L.
Kesler, Mr. S. H. Eller and Rev. R E.
Neighbor, of Salisbury.
President Kesler spoke on "What
the Orphanage Stood For," emphasiz
ing the importance and worth of a
child and that the orphanage was to
save them from wreck and ruin and to
develop in them good and worthy char
acters and to implant in their hearts
aspiration for things noble and good.
He outlined the work at Thomasville
and some of the improvements in pros
He was followed by Mr. S. H. Eller,
who for about three fourths of an hour
made a most excellent address. Mr.
Eller appologized for Gov Glenn's ab

He congratulated our State and peo*
pie for the work we are doing for
the orphans in bounds, quoting from
the official record that there were
"eleven hundred orphan children be
ing cared for in the various orphan
ages in the State; 1018 of which were
white and the rest colored." He com
plimented the Thomasville Orphanage
as leading in this work with 313 chil
dren. Mr. Eller dwelt upon Universal
Liberty, Universal Education and Uni
versal Opportunity, as being the one
thought of the American people, and
emphasized the power of prejudice
which had its foundation in ignorance
and the power of Education, and ex

The afternoon was taken up by an
address from Rev. R. E Neighbor, of
Salisbury, on "Soul Winning," and in
consideration of a proposition to a

Mr. Neighbor caught the audience
at the start and for about forty min
cmfwyp mw fpymfwyp fwy wyp yp p
utes held them as "spell bound" by
his intense enthusiasm and pertinent
and striking illustrations of his sub
ject. Those who have heard George
Stewart can get some conception of
Mr.Neighbors style and manner of ad
dress. To the mind of the writer he
is the livest wire on religion he has
run up with. He took for his text
Prov. 11:30 and emphasized Heart,
Life, Intellectual and Will preparation.
Mr. Neighbor is simply a cyclone In
speech and he makes his hearers cry
and laugh at will without at all seem
ing to try to provoke either.
Altogether the day was most delight
ful and from the collection and refresh
ment stand a handsome sum was real
ized. The Baptists support the or
phanage at Thomasville by regular col
lections for the churches and Sunday
schools. The exercises at night con
sisted of an entertainment by the or
phans and a general lawn party. The
possibility is that the great arbor will
be transferred to Thomasville.
