prosecutor's office today assumed fuil

The revolver, identified ns the property I
of the girl's father, had been tired three
times', but only two bullets have been ac
counted for. Efforts are being made to

STICK TO CHARGE
OF CRUEL BEATING
| Gaston Jury Reiterates Assertions That
Prisoners Are Inhumanely Treated.
Charlotte. June 11.—A Gaston county
grand jury, in a revised report made pub
lic today, reiterated its former allega
tions that prisoners at the Gaston coun
ty prison camp were whipped by guards
and that eight, of them were beaten with
a Atiek “six feet long” until the blood
ran. However, various modifications iu
the original report were made.
The former charges of improper con
duct of the camp were modified and the
revised report withdrew the definite re
quest for the removal of A. H. Kirksey,
camp superintendent, and urged that
those responsible for the brutal treat
ment of convicts be removed.
Both she original and revised report#
were made by the Gaston county grand
jury to Judge James L. Webb, of Shel
by. At the time of the report Judge
Webb was presiding over the Superior
Court of Gaston county. The revised
report was sent to him here, where. he
is presiding over the Mecklenburg Coun
ty Superior Court.
In the revised report the statement
is made that "thirty-one men are re
quired to sleep in a room twenty by
thirty feet, with very poor ventilation.”
The report further asserted that the
grand jury found Camp No. 2 for wibte
prisoners “in a most miserable and de
plorable condition” and that sleeping
quarters were entirely too small.
"Eight prisoners have been overwhip
ped." the report continues. “Several
have the skin broken on their arms and
legs and others have had the blood cut
of them. The punishment was inflicted
with a stick six feet long The prisoners
were whipped while at work. Mr. Kirk
sey. the whipping boss, inflicted the pun
jshment while under the influence of
whiskey, we are told.”
“We recommend that the man or men
responsible for, these conditions be re
moved ; also that the sleeping quarters
be enlarged and properly ventilated, new
bedding placed, and a general improve
ment in camp conditions be made,” con
cluded the report.
