Minister Doesn’t Think Cole
Will Receive “Vote of Thanks”
WiruLor, Sopt. o.—ln his sermon
ffinday in the Baptist church. Bev.
tSarles C. Smith, the pastor, criticiz
ed severely Secretary of State W. X.
J?Wr<*tt fcr his statement that “North
Carolina will offer Manufacturer W.
Jfc. Cole a ‘vote of thanks* when the
facts in the killing of William W. Or
moTul are made known.'*
; “This tragedy,” said Mr. Smith, re
ferring to the killing of Ormond, “is
the most shocking that has occurred
in North Carolina, as far as my recol
lection goes, during the eighteen years
that I have been in the State. On the
face of things not only does it appear
to be murder but most brutal assassi
nation. When the ‘facts of thy kill
ing* are made known Mr. Cole may not
appear so brutal and so primitive as
he is now regarded by those not in
possession of the “facts of the killing.’
“I suppose that there are not many
but who would like for a man who
stood so high as did Mr. Cole to ap
pear in some better light than now
seems i>oss : ble. However, I can not
conceive of any conditions or circum
stances that would justify a seemingly
high toned man to shoot from behind,
and without warning, an unsuspecting
youth. Certainly i am unable to con
ceive of a man, holding the high posi
tion of Secretary of State of Noiih
Carolina, going so far as not only him
self to condone this erme, but to say
that when the facts of the killing arc
kbown North Carolina will give the
murdrrer a vote, of thanks! To justi
