(Special to the Journal)
Goldsboro, April 14. For the second
time in less than a month, Goldsboro
is shocked by a tragedy, this time in
which the lif: cf a young women was
snuffed out without warning and the
life of her paramour., who rushed her
soul into eternity, is hanging by the
Shortly after 9 o'clock this morning,
Mrs. May Carter Lomax was shot
and instantly killed by Cleveland
Prince a young man who is well known
locally and who lives in a section of tljel
uiiy kiio-wii tta ncuu tuwn.
Prince had only rec&fftf? 'returned
from a trip west in the interest of his
hca'th and last Thursday he and Mrs
Lomax went out in the latter's auto
mobile frr a " oy ride". The machine
was wrecked and Mrs. Lomax was in
jurcd and later carried to the hospital
for treatment. This mprning Prince
went to Mrs. Lomax millinery estab
lishment and told one of the young
lady clerks that her employer wanted
to see her. Not doubting the young
man's word the clerk donned her hat
and cloak and together the two went
to the hospital.
As the floor nurse had no reason to
question the visitors they were per
mitted to sec Mrs. Lomax; neither did
the young lady who accompanined
Mr. Prince suspect anything for she
went with him on his statement
calling for her to accompany him, that
Mrs. Lomax had requested him to
call and take her out to the hospital,
that Mrs. Lomax wished to sec her.
Soon after the two entered Mrs
Lomax room the young lady was re
quested by Mr. Prince to step into the
hall for a moment, that he wanted to
have a private talk with Mrs
Lomax, and hardly had she complied
with ' the request when two pistol
shots rang out in the room and through
the hall and when the startled floor
nurse and others hurried to the scene
they found Mrs. Lomax dead with a
wound through the head and Mr.
Prince writhing in unconsciousness
from a like shot, self inflicted, im
mediately after shooting Mrs. Lomax
Her death was instantaneous.
inere was a noticeable intimacy
between Prince and Mrs. Lomax and
many of the more observant suspected
that an infatuation existed mutually
between them but few if any gave it a
serious turn in their minds. Rumors
however, began to go the rounds as
rumors will and Prince, about four
months or so ago, went west for his
health and cople forgot it. He return
ed two weeks ago and Thursday night'
he and Mrs. Lomax in the lattcrs auto
mobile left the city together after
midnight 'o' a "joy ride" and Friday
morning the wrecked automobile was
found on the road near the park and
there was evidence that there had been
drinking aboard. Rumor again be
came rife and yesterday Mrs. Lomax
was entced as a 'patient, in the hos
pital, At llft'clack tonight Prince
ii still living but is unconscious and
t'.icrc is no hope for his recovery.
Prior to her marriage Mrs. Lomax
was Miss My Carter. She and her
father and mother and two brothers
came her.; about ten years ago. A
shcrt time later she opened a millinery

Haywood and Rachel Pollock, colored
wanted in Wilmington for the murder
colored woman several months
ago, were apprehended and placed
under arrest in this city yesterday after
noon and arc now in the Craven coutny
jail awaiting the arrival of an officer
from that city who will carry them
back to stand trial.
Immediately after the woman, whom
the two fugitives captured here yester
day Afternoon are charged with hai ig
killed, the latter left Wilmington and
although- diligent searpji was, made for
them they could-not be located. The
police department of that city sent
out descriptions of the pair and one of
these fell into the hands of Chief of
Police Lupton and since that time he
and his men have been on the lookout
Yesterday afternoon Chief of Po
lice Lupton was at the depot when the
train from Wilmington arrived. Hay
wood Pollock alighted from the train
first and a few seconds later was cined
by his female companion. Their ac
tions appeared suspicious to Chief
Lupton and he watched them for a
minute or more. Suddenly he thought of
he description sent him from Wil
mington and decided that these two
were the ones wanted. Keeping in
the background, so as. not to alarm
the fugitives, the Chief wa ched them
en er a colored boarding house close
by and as soon as they had gained the
inside, he had Policemen Bryan and
Lup on who were also at the depot
made a rush for the door.
The woman saw the officers first
and made a dash for freedom, running
through the house and out into the
yard but Chief Lupcon was watching
their every move and he had her under
arrest before she had covered many
yards. In the meantime fouccman
Whitford had taken charge of Haywood
Pollock and the two were then taken
At first they both dented that they
were the persons wanted but after a

For three days of the reunion, May

reunion association to look after the
health of the veterans and visitors. A
couple of physicians each day will be
located at convenient points in the
city and on the battlefields, so that

So, if a veteran or visitor is suddenly

other states, who have looked into this

it the most perfect they have ever seen.
In case of accident, the medical corps

in demand by somebody. The pre

New York, April 14. On the United
Fruit Company's steamer Carillo,
which sailed yesterday for Guyaquil,
Ecuador, were Mr. and Mrs. William
G. Gates, of Callao, Peru, arid thrc
mining engineers and assaycrs.
Mr. Gates has had large mining in
terests in Peru for some years past;
but a couple of months ago he came
upon a "find" in the course of explora
tions in the wilds of the Andes that
impressed him so deeply that he came
at once to New York in o -dcr to secure
expert Opinion on the1 question. The
location of the "find" Mr. Gates re
fused to make public beyond saying
that it is between the headwaters of
The ore, says Mr. Gates gold ore
is of such richness that he believes he
has at last actually found the original
treasure lode of the Incas, and ha
thus re-discovered, an ancient mine
that has been the subject of wild spec
ulation, the object of hundreds of pros
pecting expeditions and the theme of
scores of romances in every language
since the days of Pizarro.
"The tales of the old Spanish con
quisladoes," said Mr. Gates, "are full
of descriptions of the Incas, Manco and
Huaym Capax, of the gold plates on the
walls of their places and temples, the
eold ornaments on the costumes of
the meanest of their court at
tendants, the gold that apparently
strewed the very ground around them
The precious metal seems to have been
common as lead among them.
"Pizarro and his men seized vast
quantities ot gold and silver at the
taking of Quito and Cuzco, but it has
always been believed that even larger
portions of the treasure escaped them
and has remained to this day buried
far back in some almost inaccessible
recess of the Andes.
"I do not know whether these talcs
are myth or cxiggeration or plain sober
fact. Certainly none of the many ex
peditions organized to search for the
treasure has ever been successful. But
it is not open to doubt that Pizarro and
his men did seize immense quantities of
gold in Peru. Enough ot it was brought
back to Spain to prove that. None of th
back to Spain to prove that. None of
the mines now known in Peru would
account for such vast wealth. The
lode I have just found, however, is of
such amazing richness that I think
it is only reasonable to suppose that
it must be the true source of the treasure
of the Incas."
Mr. Gates said that he had not let
hii discovery be known in- Peru fc
fear of Governmental interference
is un lerstood in Lima that he ha
found iron ore, and his expedition
known in Peru as an expedition to
develop a new iron mine.
