trial for murder in the second degree
- was acquitted. -
. One of the strangest if not the awful
est scenes ever presented in the Guil
ford county court house. The verdict
in the Bohannon murder case was mur
der in -the first degree. He was
' brought to the bar and Judge Long
asked the prisoner the usual question
if he had anything to say why sentence
of death should not be passed. W hen
the judge began the sentence Bohannon
commenced swearing but just as the
judge was about to name the day of
execution he collapsed and although
two officers were close by and rushed
to his assistance he fell helpless to the
floor, creating great consternation in
the crowded court room by his groans
and gutteral stragglings.
Two physicians were present and at
tended him, bis throat became rigid and
he was unable to swallow. Although
hypodermic injections were adminis
tered, he had not at a late hour given
signs of regaining his senses or pulse.
His concitiou is very low and his death
is expected before morning.

been taken by the Association.

It is the opinion of the well informed

as was thought some weeks ago, and
unless some decided action is taken will
not bring the producers the money they
should receive for it '
There should be a full attendance at
each of the county meetings the first

when being sentenced to death yester
day produced such a scene is out of dag
ger this morning but very4 weak. The
iailer says that for several days Bohan
non has beeh praying fervently that
God would not permit him to die on the
gallows, but would put it into the heart
of the judge to send hira to the peniten-
tiary. He is of the lowest intelligence,
and it is said he had been assured by
some of his jail companions that his
prayer had been answered and he would
not be hanged. ! r . V
Two deputy sheriffs left on the early
morning train today taking Ki Crutch
field and Alex Landers to the penitenti
ary to begin serving their long terms,
one for life, one for fifteen years. Judge
Long left last night for his home in
Statesville, He has agreed to ex
change courts with Judge Cook next
week,, bo that Judge Cook can hold
Franklin term at his home, while Judge
Long will hold the term of court in Hen
derson county at Hendersonville. ,

appeal to the Supreme Court which

Major Charles M Stedman returned
from New York yesterday. He left his
daughter considerably improved. She
was quite sick, howsver, during the
greater time that he was in New York.
Major Stedman was too anxious 'about
his daughter to enter very much into
the political excitement which was pre
vailing to such a great degree while he
was in New York, but he found it im
possible not to get a good many side
lights on the situation f com his associa
tion with the gueats in his hotel.
He stopped at the hotel Cadillac,
whose proprietor and two sons are
Democrats, but declare they will not
vote for Hearst But they told Major
Stedman that the one hundred employes
in the hotel of whom about half were
Republicans and the other half Demo
crats, would all vote for Hearst. This
incident and others of a similar nature,
caused Major Stedman to become still
further convinced of what he thought
all along, namely, that Hearst was ex
tremely popular with the laboring peo
ple. He does not believe that Hearst
will get in Bryan's way for the Demo
cratic Presidential nomination in 1908.
On the contrary, ho believes that the
New York editor will be one of the
mightiest factors in Bryan's behalf in

Judge Douglas, and has divided it up
into five and ten acre lota, suitable for
small truck farms and homes, and will
sell the same at public auction to the

Greensboro, Oct 1st A "movin"
question here now is, "what will Mayor
Murphy consider to be "necessities'!
under the new city ordinance forbidding
the Bale of any thing except "necessi
ties" on Sunday. The board of alder
men at their last meeting re-inforced
an old ordinance on the subject of Sun
day sales and put it up to the Mayor to
decide whether cigars, soft drinks, to
bacco etc., are necessities. The Mayor
will announce his decree in the matter
on Tuesday, and it is highly probable
that for a while now, - Greensboro peo
ple will have to buy such things on Sat
urday nights or stand in with some con
venient friend on the quiet for Sunday

the running of street cars will be
stopped or the sale of lunches or news

ner that has ever been hoisted in the

Saturday night, with the following big
lettered inscription: "The Big Central
Carolina Fair, Greensboro, N. C, Oct
9th to 12th.". The banner was execu
ted and designed by the 'Greensboro

The Fair is expected to be even a great
er success this year than last when a
big cash dividend was declared to the
stockholders after paying liberal pre
miums. Besides the promise of a clean
midway and a high standard of agricul
tural stock and domestic exhibits, there
will be a big string of horses. A cir
cumstance operating favorably for the
securing a large number" of the best
horses ariseB from the fact that this
week, Winston, Burlington and Lynch

all, the horses at these three points will
come to. Greensboro the week following.-,

Judge Boyd returned from Washing

of the regular October term of federal
court was had this morning. It is not
expected that any jury trials will be had
today. The most important cases to
be tried are the left-over revenue fraud
cases in which officers of the govern

distillers to defraud the government
Almost all of the distillers who were in

A novelty in Guilford county political
affairs, is the refusal of the Republican
committee to have a joint canvass with
the Democratic county' candidates. It
has always been the rule here for the
two sets to go over the county togeth
er, taking the sheriff's tax collecting
appointments as the r dates. This year
the Republican Chairman having re
fused to co-operate with Democrats,
the latter will make the rounds alone.
The political campaign in Guilford
county opened at Proximity Friday,
when State Treasurer B. R. Lacy, of
Raleigh, and E. J. Justice of this city,
one of the candidates for the legisla
ture from this county, addressed a large
crowd of representative citizens of that
section in the spacious hall over the
Proximity store. Besides a good turn
out of the people of Proximity, there
were several who went from the city,
including county chairman Brown, sec
retary Collins and members of the

pression and were repeatedly interrup

One Reason That the Cron

Raleigh. Oct 1 It seems to .be evi
dent, in looking through quite a lot of
territory that the farmers planted more
cotton than they can pick. Pickers)
seem to be extraordinarily scarce in the
fields which are literally white with
cotton. Thia was found to be the case
all the way to Fayetteville Saturday
and all the way from Raleigh to Nash

; Sunshiners Have a Cay Time
. Special Correspondence
Raleigh, Oct 1 The Sunshiners had
a delightful trip to Fayetteville last
Saturday over the Raleigh & Southport
Railway, which is certainly one of the
best of the new roads in the state. The
children enjoyed themselves immensely
and so did the Confederate dram corps
of L. O. B. Branch Camp, U. C. V. of
Raleigh which made its merry music
all day and which completely captured
the good people of Fayetteville. The
latter were untiring in their attentions
and showed all manner of courtesies to
the visitors. The Confederate veter-
ans there were simply delighted at the
presence of the drum corps.
President Mills of the Raleigh &
Southport Railway was in charge of the
train. He iuforme your correspondent
that within two weeks a train will be
put on from Raleigh through to Wil
mington which will make very quick
time, leaving Raleigh in the afternoon
and making the run through in about
four houas, and using the Atlantic &
Yadkin division of the Atlantic Coast
Line, with which road to be Sure the
Raleigh & Southport is on the very
friendliest terms. It is quite probable
that the Atlantic & Yadkin Division
will use the very handsome new pas
senger station which Mr. Mills is now
completing on Hay Street in the heart
of Fayetteville. '
