begun yesterday, and at midnight the
jury was looked up without reaching a
decision. At dawn, however, they had
agreed and notified Judge T. D. Bryson,
who has presided over the special term of
court, to this effect.
The trial was an outgrowth of caveators
seeking to break the will on the grounds
that the man was not. competent to know

the closing argument before the jury of
James H. Pou, of Italeigh, of counsel for

New York. April 2.—The cotton mar

of 3 points to a decline of 5, points,

looted Sculptor Spoke in Con
cord Last Night at Request
of .Members of Daughters
of the Confederacy.
And Sculptor’s Address Was
In Reality Answer to Ques
tions—Plainly Showed His
Interest In the Work.
Gutzon Borglum opened his heart to
his audience last night at the High
School auditorium. He poured out his
very soul in a talk teeming with pathos
and left the listeners on the verge of
The noted sculptor took his hearers in
what seemed to be a confidential conver
sation and told to them the whole story,
at times being so overcome with his emo
tions that people on the back seats had
to strain to catch the words as they feil
feebly from his lips. At other times his
eyes' flashed and his voice hardened as
his anger became aroused. The whole
speech, according to people who have
heard him, was entirely different from his
After an introduction by John Jl.
Oglesby, of this city, in which he said
that every few generations produced a
genius and that the Daughters of the
Confederacy had secured a genius to
speak here, Mr. Borglum began his ad
dress by stating that he would answer a
few questions which had been asked him.
In answer to the question "Should the
memorial be a work of art?” Mr. Borglum
said that the work on Stone Mountain
could never be done by a plumber or a
brick-mason. It had to be done by au
artist or it would be a "grotesque vaude
lu answer to the question "Shall we
buy the coin?” Mr. Borglum made a
lengthy answer. "The South did not con
ceive the memorial. The plan was
brought by some one not of the South
who realized thal the war contained a
great drama, cost almost your very lives
and almost meant the extinction of the
economic Use of the section. The stogy
os brought hj someone' dfc cat not be left'
Leaving the matter of the coin, Mr.
Borglum continued by telling the story of
the Association's lack of interest in the
project. During the entire, period he had
been carving the mountainside, the As
sociation never eame to view the work.
At a luncheon in Atlanta, he had re
marked to one of the members of the
Association that he would give SIOO
apiece to get them to come and look at
the work. The member to whom he was
talking said that they would be glad to
come and so he immediately sent tele
grams asking them to lunch with him on
the mountain during the following week.
Out of the four replies received, only
two accepted aud only one of those who
The "so-called Association," according
to Mr. Borglum had on it two real estate
men, several lawyers, several bankers but
no one who knew anything about art.
There were no professional men on the
committee, no men connected with the
universities, aud no artists.
“I came here,” said Mr. Borglum, in
starting his address proper, “on the re
quest of several citizens. It is a big
thing that your forefathers played the
game. It required more heroism to do
what Lee did than was required for
Washington to do what he did. Robert

king and country back of him, suddenly
finds himself asked to take part in a
war against his Southland. Lincoln of

forces and does he He asked

to go up and down the country making
speeches? Yes, because I see how badly
you need a memorial.
“I am a sculptor. I love every part
of this country and try to understand its
history. I have studied it from the time

and landed in Virginia. AU these things
are material for drama, for pointings and
for sculpture. When I eame South I
found, what I had missed elsewhere in
America. I found people trying to keep
alive the memory of she Confederacy,
clinging to the ideals of 1865.
Mr. Borglum then told in fascinating
fashion the story of how the idea for
making the monument on Stone Moun
tain came to him. He had come South
at the request of the U. D. C. to design a
small monument about 10 feet square to
be placed at the foot of the mountain.
When he saw the mountain and the
way in which the women of the South
were trying to keep faith, he refused to
design it, telling -them that it was far too
small a thing to commemorate the Con
federacy. He then went to Stone Moun
tain nnd spent three days and nights on
it studying the situation.
He could make, he said, neither a
Northern victory nor a Southern victory
since this would not be liked by either
of the two sides. Then suddenly he bad
the idea of having Lee’s army inarching
northward at the moment when the
Bouth rose in defense. The sketches were
made and this idea has only been chang
ed slightly since the beginning. “For

Hartford. Conn., April 2 (By the Asso
ciated Press). —Gerald Chapman this
morning took the stand in his own defense
on a charge of having murdered Patrol
man Jns. Skelly in Xew Britain last Oc
Chapman, cool and collected, speaking
in clear tones, denied that he had been in
the Davidson & Levantlml store in New
Britain at any time. It was in this
store that Skelly was murdered.
His d : reet examination was brief.

Shean, of Springfield. Mass., who first
accused him of the Skelly murder through
the agency of “Dutch” Anderson, his pal,
in the New York mail robbery.
Cnder cross examination he refused to
be rushed inton answers at the hands
of State Attorney Hugh M. Alcorn. Al

witness if he had a gun when he held

he said he did uot. "Anderton had. but I
I had not.” he said.
Alcorn disagreed with Chapman’s ver
sion of the mail robbery, and the witness ;
looking straight into the prosecutor's i
eye, said r
"I don’t want td argue this matter i

So forlorn does Chapman’s hope for 1
acquittal appear, and so great is the fear 1
of what his daring may lead him to do, '
that when two ten-ounce bottles of 1
nitroglycerine, enough of the pale yellow 1
fluid to blow the Court House to pieces, 1
were put in evidence, four deputy '
sheriffs rose to their feet about him as 1
he sat fingering a pencil.
They stood silently. Their hands were *
not six inches from his shoulders. They ■
were ready to toss him back or shoot ’
him if he made the slightest movement. 1
The bottles were exposed for an in- 1
stant in an open bag, not twelve feet 1
from where Chapman sat. State's At
torney Alcorn lifted them tenderly out
of the bag. One after the other he put
them softly on the table.
Chapman only glanced at. the bottles
nnd turned toward the witness. His
right hand touched his chin thoughtful- i
ly. His left lay limp in his lap.

Changes Seen on the Trip
Through Counties Once
Backward But Now Most
BY \V. M. SHERRILL
Durham, April I.—Those who harbor
in their hearts a desire to gaze again oil
the Tr’nity College they knew in this
city of culture and tobacco should lose no
time in do’ng so, for the plant known as
Trinity soon will give way to the step
of progress even as the name has done,
nnd on the site of the present buildings
there will be erect ed more pretentious
structures, which will form the material
background for a university that will
take rank with the larger and more am- ,
bit-'ous ones throughout the l'nited States.
Duke University of today is not unlike v
Trinity College of last year, but the roE
semblance will uot continue long under S
jilans being devised here in accordance
with the J. B. Duke fund of $40,000,000.
Actual construction work on Duke Uni
versity as it will be kuown in future «> ; f
years, has not been begun yet, but on
every hand there are evidences indicat
ing that the work will be underway soon.
One of the largest rooms in the East
I take building is now filled with blue
jvriiitts; on a part of the campus near the
former home of the late Bishop Kilgo (’
there have been erected sample walls
showing the various materials that have
been suggested for the buildings which are
to house the students and equipment of
the university: many acres of land ad
jo'ning tiie present campus have beeii pur
chased : trustees of the Duke fuud met
here Monday for a conference: and there
is an air of expectancy that seems to i
penetrate to every part of the campus.

resjiect held by all former students for
their ahjia maters, yet I find iu; me M
Sorrow Shat the college wifi give way to
the university. Fond memories were
aroused as 1 visited various buildings on
the campus today, yet 1 found in me no■■■is&i:
regret that more suitable structures -will
replace those which brought the memo
ries to me. It seems fitting to me that
the Trinity I knew should willingly and
graciously step aside for the Duke Uni
versity I am to know since the latter will
offer more opportunities to more young
men nnd women.
Dr. Ff’W spoke briefly of future plans
for Duke University, confining his talk
to generalities since full plans have not
been made public by the trust fund com- ’
mittee and the university officials. The .
change means added duties and responsi
bilities for Dr. Few but in bis quiet and
diguified maimer he showed nothing but
pleasure that it will be his lot to play a '
big part in the organization and manage
ment of the university.
I found Dr. Frank Brown and Prof.
Charles Markham, who seemed especially
interested in me while I was a student at
Trinity, working id the room which hous

Among the faculty I found other
friends, some of whom were students with
me, but on the campus I found no famil

things about returning to college years
after you have graduated. 1 felt almost
like a stranger even in the building in
which X had slept for four years.
There is another peculiar tiling about
visiting a college after you have been
out several years—all of the students look
like youngsters. As a matter of fact they
are youngsters, but somehow one forgets
that he too, was a youngster when he

Durham in the past ten years has
changed as much as any city in North
Carolina, and the change is not to be re

lots where formerly stood homes in which
1 was often a guest. Properties that
were known as "so nnd so woods" are
now thriving suburbs. This morning as I
stood on the square trying to realize that
this is the city I once knew so well, a
band started playing and a question to a
passerby brought the information that the
band concert was the offertory to an- >

many such sales have been held in the ■
and near the city in recent years with
prices rising with each succeeding sale.
