WHY 3AIIDERS V j
, FLEDTHE COURT
Relative of . Frank Sanders Tells
Why he Failed to
Special Correspondence. -"
NewnoVL N. C Anril 12. The fact
that Frank Sanders fled the Federal J
rtlllt of KI.M ' Rom luaf -OlnK 1" 'tlB '
been new that, has "been, broadcasted
over the State, "hia fleeing dee( I vf re
gretted by his family,' and most merci
lessly condemned by hia interest d ene
mies. Why he fled has never te 'ri"ex
pldined, but if the 'facta ; were. '.'"'tnown
and the public eye could penetrat j the
scenes enacted behind the curt! in of
the conspirators, the honest pubb sen
timent would be changed to a set ie, if
not of approval, to at least oo . of a
pardonable act. ' . " .;. ' ""
Dating back to October, 1909, when
Y. Z. Newberry, Mayor of Newpo t was
murdered, a conspiracy was form d, its
memberahipnot wholly confined t-' New
port, its object being to implies! Y and
df Btioy both Jack and Frank Sanders.
The ingenuity of the conspirator j- W8B
craffy and deceitful. The public mind
must be poisoned against - these men,
and the first act was a communication
published in the News and Observer,
pretended to have been written at New
port by one of its citizens as" a.fpecial
correspondent, but this' Communication
was concocted and dictated by at least
two'of the conspirators one not a res
ident of Newport. " ;,,:. ! ! ?:'
this communication botfly charged
that Jack Sanders did the shooting and
wai arrested on the spot with a gun ii
hia hand hot and smoking. " On trial t
was proven by the oath of the sheriff of
the county, that it Was futly 17 hours
after the murder that the arrest nf
Jack Sanders with hia gun was made.
But the purpose of the false article hid
been accomplished,', and public senti
merit ran ' high ; against tlie Sanden
boys., They were arraigned and tiied at
once, and no mightier effort was vever
made to convict. Yet, with public sen
timent, poisoned and . red hot against
them the evidence was go conduce in
their favor, the twelve, jurors, at ran-
gers and wholly unknown to the pris
oners, t iok but A short deliberation to
return their verdict "not guilty "
The same conspirators who plotted
and labored to destroy Jack and Frank
fanders in October 1909, are actively
U work against Frank danders today,
and are resorting to the game vile
means of attempting to poison the pub
lic mind, hoping their vengence may he
rowned with success and Frank Sand-
era sent to the penitentiary. And going
further in thfeir hopes to destroy every
influence that might bar their malicious
fforts. they have enlarged and broad-
3oed their charges and denunciations,
to include the entire Sanders family.
Both in the News and Observer and the
Raleigh Daily Tim js communications
have been sent with slanderous articles
against the entire Sanders family. Sub
tile,, crafty and unscrupulous, these
conspirators fed with venom the pens
f thebe correspondents through .their
special agency living in New Bern. It
iffords me and our families much grat
ficatien to receive assurances from ti e
editors of the News andObierver 'and
he Raleigh Daily Times that th y do
not share in the sentime nt of the o jec
ted-to-communications and will so. an
nounce in their respective, papers.
Yes, Frank' Sanders fled the Fettaral
court, but he will be at its next ter n at
New Bern to meetthe malicious in lict
ment ot his prosecutors. Hi bondi ,n m
hall rot suffer; and hia Honor, 3 ldge
Conner, shall not have cause to s isre
the base opinion his malicious pros ecu
tors would have him do. , -;
The history of the case is this: The
culmination of the conspiracy res ii ted
in report fiat Frank Sandars c i a
certain day in October in 1900 at h iw-.
port, sold some one a drink ot liq I r
only one offense. . H t was - aretjt-d
handcuffed and taken up to Naw tiern
directly before the court: At Ihe :ase
would not be tried that weak, bis Jaw
yef asked his release under bond.. N')W
comes the part that filled Frank's mind
with astonishment and fear Jla lnew
several cases Vnr trial at this to of
the court for illicit distilling dii tills
had been captured andVthe defend tnti
had been, bonded, some at C200 and oth
ers not over 250. . For the charge of
one minor offense of -retailing he sup
posed his bond would be a small one
and especially as this was the first case
he had evet had in this court.
The bond required was' $1000, . He
went back home, his mind filled with
forebodings, resiles and unable to solve
tbe causi of the excessive bo.nl. .; He
began to drink heavily and on Sunday
night attempted suicide by taking lau
danum. His wife sent for 'me hurried

VOICE OF IDE PEOPLE.
. ,- AS TO CUSTODIAN,
Editor New Bern Jbuaal; '
A few days ago you! tiqk the liberty
to write an article in vyoy paper criti
cizing our Collector ol Customs at this
port, who, by virtue oi his office, is the
custodian of the ' Federal building in
N)W B-srn. '?. '? ' '
In your criticism you seemed to over
look the fact that two plus two mak
four. Let me ask youj a simple question
ih rnat hematics: If t takes six days
to do a certain piece of work, then what
part of that work could be perform d it
three days? r Or. if fiur persons have
to work six days to perform a certain
duty, how can two people i t the same
amount of work in six day?.
v It occurs to me that after you have
psrmitted the solution of these prob
lems by your mind, it.would be bo more
than fair and just toy our present cus
todian, Mrj'at ifikJthat yoa.retmct
some of the assertions - you have made
in the aforesaid article against our Mr.
Patrick. But you Say that Mr. Patrick's
appointment should require at least a
reasonable amount of his time in bis of
ficial duty. To that I would reply,
that you foil to give, Mr. Patrick due
credit. for his own personal effects and
business. - You do not seem to under
stand that Mr. Patrick lives in Greene
county, about aixty miles from
his officer"; you ' do -not., seem i to
known that he is . a prosperous
farmer, and one of the largest mule
Healers in North Carolina You seem to
overlook the fact that a man must give
his -business the greater part of hia at
tention in order to make it a succes.
Undoubtedly, you dp hot know that Mr.
Patrick has to go home nearly every
Friday and does n t return for duty
until, generally Tuesday morning. You
seem to ttvnk that the office of our cus
todian should move along as smoothly
as machinery without Mr. Patrick being
present to give it the propelling power
But yon say his deputy should be there
if Mr. Patrick's business is of such a
nature that . be cannot give his office
proper attention. Why, Mr. Editor
In the' name of all reason, djn't you
have any respect for a man's feelings T
Doesn't the Deputy live in Lenoir Ca.,
(nearly as fr from New Bern as Mr.
Patrick), and don't yon think the dep
tity should have a much time to ipend
in Lenoir with bis folks as .Mr. Patrick
takes at his home T Are not these rea
sons sufficient to cause you , to retract
what you have said About our present
cus'odianT If I am incorrect in my hy
pothesis, then I shall be only too pleas
ed to hear your correction, Mr. Pat
rick is a candidate for re-Otection, land
it may be'posaibU ( that some , of the
time that has bee spent away from
his office has been spent in Washington
Ciry placing bis claims for re appoint
ment; If this bo true, how can yoo
rblame him? You know that "self pre
servation is the first law of nature."
It will plesse a friend of Mr. Dan W.
Patrick if you will retract the smart
saying hich appeared in your editoritl

Rejected, He Attempts Sulclee.
Yesterday afternoon a young white
man named Edwards, who is employed
ay the Roper Lumber Company in this
city, attempted to commit suicide by
irinking a small bottle of bichloride of
mercury. - Fortunately for him his rash
deed was discovered soon after it was
committed and he was rushed to Stew
art's sanitorium where medical aid was
rendered him and a report from that
institution last night stated that he was
resting as well: as could be expected
under the circumstances.
From the few facta that could be
learned in regards to the affair, it seems
that Edwards bad become enamored
with a young lady of this city and af
ter he had proposed marriage to her
and had been rejected decided to-straf-fie
off this mortal eoil by the poison
route and but for the fact that another
ot the employees of the company dis
soved that he had drunk the poison a

Robert Smith, A. Young . White
Man Bound Over to Superior
Court Under Grave' ,
' ' Charges, c, , , ',
That "the way of the transgressor is
hard"was fittingly exemplified in the po
lice court y est erday af ternoonwhen prob
able cause was found against Robert
Smith.a young white man Charged with
forging two checks, and he was bound
over to the next term of Craven county
Superior court under a bond of $100.
Mr, L, M. Satterwaite, who conducts
a grocery store onJGrifikh Btreet was the
first witness put on the stand.; He said
that on last Monday morning , young
Smith entered his store 'and after pur
chasing a number of articles terdered a
check signed by E. H. and J. A. Mead
ows and made payable to Paul Darden.
That the amount of the check was $16
and that he deducted the price of the
groceries purchased and gae the
change to the defendant. ': -f'l
Yesterday morning the second check
made its appearance. This ' time Mr.
Ed. LeGallis who conducts the River
side store was the victim. J Mr. Le
Gallis stated that Smith came into his
store and after purchasing a number of
articles which he ordered delivered at a
certain residence at a specified time,
tendered a cheek for $9, signed by the
New Bern Iron Works and made pay
able to Paul Darden. At a 'time desig
nated by the purchaser the goods were
dispatched from the store but within a
short while the delivery boy returned
and informed him that the people living
at the number -given by the purchaser
claimed not to know anything in regard
to the purchase of the goods..: Then it
was that Mr. LeGallis began to inves
tigate. . Tbe result was that he found
that the check was forgery and at ohse
had a warrant sworn out for young
Smith. . '
Smith was placed on the stand in his
own behalf and said that he did not
know anything about the checks and
the gentleman who had testified that he
received the money from them - were
mistaken as to his- identity, .' The evi
dence was 'so . strong however, . that
Mayor McCarthy found probable cause
and bound the defendant over ' to the
next term of court under a bond of
$100. ..'. '
It was also shown during : the trial
that Smith had presented several or
ders on the city signed by the foreman
of the Atlantic Steam Fire Company
and had received the money for them.
No action was taken in this matttr. '
