, , Raleigh, January 20. There came
today as the aftermath to the jury's
verdict yesterday in the case against
Lilliston, the Norfqjk, Va,, fair fakir,
convicted of killing Charles G, Smith,
during fairweekln Raleigh, and a sen
tence of fourteen years in the peniten
tiary, evidence that is entirely new and
unheard, which places the matter in
the light of a real sensation. Notwith
standing - the fact that the case was
tried, first in the city court and then in
Wake- county Superior Court, with a
great array of witnesses and the usual
reports of that trial by the newspapers
there appeared today three other wit
nesses who make affidavit ts to the new
facts as to the shooting. One woman,
who is well known, in Raleigh, states
she was sitting in the ladies waiting
room at the Union Passenger Station
on the afternoon the tragedy took place
that she was sitting within a few feet
of the spot where the man Smith was
shot, and could clearly see the flash of
a pistol, her view as she . sat not being
obstructed by any part of the crowd,
and right near the glass partition di
viding the men's waiting room from
that occupied by ladies. ' Clark and
Lilliston, while the shooting were in
another part of the waiting room for
men, and that a third party altogether
different, and whom she would be able
to identify, committed the deed. She
aiso says that eight shots were fired,
as she recounted to her friends the next
day, thongh seven was the number
accredited. ThiB woman saw the Smith
man lean over and press his hands to
his sides as if in great pain, then saw
him sink to a seat from which he was
later removed to the ambulance for
hospital treatment. , : , i '
The testimony of the two other wit
nesses will be virtually the same-thing,
though their relative positions were
not quite so near. Messrs. Argo and
Shaffer, and W. N. Holding, counsel
for Lilliston, are together going over
the matter this afternoon, and there is
no doubt that there will be immediate
action in the affair that has created
such interest in the list of crimes in
In talking with Lilliaton's counsel
your correspondent was told that there
was little doubt now that there was
perjury or a case of conspiracy. This
view of the matter may be strengthen
ed by the general estimate always
placed upon such associates las are us
ually followers of the fairs and such
kindred lines of work. The principal
witness, the woman here in Raleigh
who was in the waiting room, , first ap
proached James Lilliston the griefs
stricken father of the condemned man,
from Norfolk, and told him that she
had remained quiescent because she
did not desire the prominence that is
always given by a court trial, but she
had concluded she could not afford to
allw an innocent man to suffer, partic
ularly by such a sentence, when a guilty
man had committed the murderous deed
and had made good his escape. Another
witness refrained from speech because
he felt a prejudice toward all fair fakirs
and men of that class. - . '
This most surprising and ; unusua
turn in the case, after;trial and judg
ment will come as a distinct surprise
to the people who have from day to
day followed the testimony and the act
ion of the entire' case, which consumed
more than a week in Wake county Su
perior court '.

18 CRUSHED TO DEATH,
Cry of Firs Cauae Panic In Colored
Church. ; '
Philadelphia, Pa., Jan. 21. A wild
panic following a loud shriek of "Fire"
brought death to eighteen golored per
sons and injuries to nearly two-score of
others tonight in St Paul's Baptist
church on the west side of Eighth Street
between Poplar street and Girard Ave
nue. The terrible rush to gain the
street was of brief duration, and (that
more were not killed in the stampede
was probably due to the fact that the
church was not crowded. " Not more
than 300 persons were on the second
floor of the building, which, with the
gallery, wss capable of accommodating
600 to 700. The fire was a trifling one,
and was extinguished before the fire
men arrived. The smell of smoke
added to the panic, and despite the he
roic work of the Ilev. E. W.. Johnson,
tho pastor of the church, who tried in
vain to allay the fears of the frighten
ed worshippers, the terror-stricken
people made a desperate rush to leave
the church only to be choked up on the
narrow stairway. Those in the rear
leaped over the prostrate forms of
those who fell, and when the rush was
over, eighteen lay dead on the first
floor and stairs of the building. Death
in nearly every case was due to suffoca
tion or trampling.

It appears that the orders oi Good

National Lodge, while the other domes
ticated under the State law and became

ATTACKED BY DOGS,
Young Soil ol Mr Oennard Robarti.tha Victim
of a Vicious Animal,
Great excitement was caused on the
street Sunday afternoon by the attack
of four large dogs on Master Dennard,
the six year old son of Mr. D W. Rob
erts. The little boy was passing Mr.
James A. Bryan's place and was mar
the stable on New street 'when a big
bull dog terrior jumped - on him and
threw him down. . Two ,other dogs
closed in on the boy but it is not thought
they touched him while a fourth dog
was running to them and .it was ap
parent that help must come at once or
there would be a horrible affair.' Fortu
nately, Mr. B G Credle sa the attack
and he went to the boy's assistance and
kicked the dogs away. . Tho bull dog
had the boy's arm in its mouth and was
chewing and pulling at him viciously
when driven away. But for the boy's
thick clothing the injuries would have
been more severe. Mr. Herbert Hanks
picked the boy up and carried him to
the home of his grandfather, Capt Cra
pon, but a short distance away and Dr.
Jones was summoned and dressed the
wounds. Both arms were badly lacer
at h! below the elbow and the .face was
scratched and bruised. The scratches
on the face are not believed to have
been made by the dogs teeth. ;
He was reported as improving finely
yesterday and there are no fears of any
serious results. v
The bull dog was the property of Mr
Bryan and had escaped fron) the enclo
sure where it is kept for tha purpose of
watching the premises. The animal
was killed by police officer 3, W, Bow-
dan, about an hour after the attack oc
curred. The other dogs ran off and
there is no means of their identifica
tion: v. . ' c-
: The affair caused great excitement
and the screams of the little boy was
the cause of the temporary adjourn
ment of the Sunday School sessions of
both Presbyterian and Methodist
churches. It has revived the ' tilk
against the large dogs which are al
lowed to run loose in the street and
many people have complained of them
The Journal has made many protests
against this practice. They area men
ace and some means should be employed

CARNEGIE FUND SHRINKS
Relief Work It Eating Up tha $4,000,000
Pittsburg, Jan.' 21. Large notices
have been posted at the numerous fur
naces, mills, mines and coke works of
of the former Carnegie Steal Company,
showing workings of the Carnegie Re
lief Fund. The sheets indicate that
Mr. Carnegie must donate' a greater
sum to carry on the worll for which
the fund was intended or the beneficia
ries will have their awards reduced.
On January 1, 1902, Mr. Carnegie set
apart $4,000,000 in United States Steel
5 per cent, bonds, the interest to be
applied to the relief of hit workmen
hurt in the service' or in other need of
help.' The income from this fund is
$200,000 a year. The figurt show that
the disbursements of last year were
$66,290.15 in excess of the income,
while the disbursements of, 1904 were
$41,288.32 in excess of the income.
Both of these overdrafts jwere made
op from an overplus and sinking fund
from the years 1902 and 1903. Should
the disbursements of 1906 be as great
asthat of 1905 there will be foun&a
deficit : A ' .
Since the fund has been established
there has been disbursed $737,144.49,
covenng7;35S cases,, of accident;' 523
deaths and 399 pensions. , ; . . '
