M fceaat Underhlll Says He Thinks
Young Man Lost Life In
Thle Way.
Underhlll was shooting at Party of

Altercatlo n.
(Special to the Journal).
Kiaston, June 2-'. A few minutes
before 12 o'clock Saturday night
Carlylc Heath, sons of Jesse Heath,
a prominent citizen of this city, was
shot in the abdomen while walking
down Hcrritage . street in company
with a companion. Medical attention
was given the young man but- his
injuries were of such a nature thai
death occurred at '-5 .i'iroelt Sunday
afternoon, -ames UridrrlrilT, a painter,
and the self-confessed slayer of Heath
is now under a bond of one thousand
dollars and Joe Tisdale of New Bern
is under a bond of five hundred dollars
to appear at the next term of Superior
Court as a witness.
The affair has caused a sensation in
ICinston. Heath, who has been employed'
"as a saw filer with the John L. Roper
Lumber Company at New Bern, had
come to Kinston for a visit with his
parents. Saturday night he and a
friend went fora walk. At the time
of the tragedy they had just turned
from Shine strefPpto Herritage. This
section of the city bears an unenviable
reputation and according to the state
ments of Heath's companion they were
endeavoring to get out of it as quickly
as possible.
Suddenly the reports of four revolver
shots rent the, air. The first struck
a fence near the young men, the second
and fourth evidently went "wild" but
the third struck Mr. Heath in the
abdomen. The wounded man was
rushed to the hospital and all porsiblc
medical aid was given him, but this
proved futile.
Immediately after Heath's death,
capiases were issued for six suspects.
Two of the six had no trouble in prov
ing alibis. Gus Shivers was discharged.
Joe Tisdale and, "Doc." Taylor were
held. The weapon with which the
shooting was done was found in Tay
lor's possession, and the police were
of the opinion that he was the guilty
man. The police had failed to locate
James Underhill, but at midnight last
night he, walked into the office of the
county jail and surrendered.
Underhill told the police that he had
shot at some negroes at the time Heath
was killed and that there was a possi
bility that one of the bullets had struck
Heath. He said that after the shooting
he went into Taylor's store and left
his revolver with Taylor.
The preliminary hearing was held
this afternoon. This was attended by
a large crowd and much interest was
manifested in the proceedings. It de
veloped that Underhill and Tisdale
fad had an altercation with negroes
and that this culminated in the former
shooting af them. The negroes fled
as' soon as Underhill drew his revolver
and Heath received one of the bullets
intended for them. It was shown that
"Doc" Taylor was not implicated in
the affair and he was discharged

July now immediately there flashes
through the mind a picture of a grand
stand crowded with excited people
watching horse races, moto: cycle races,
bicycle races and a great firemen's

picnic dinner under the shade trees
at Glenburnie park, the place that is
made beautiful by nature, a place
where the cool breezes blow, and where
the sparkling cool spring water comes
bubbling out of cold mother earth.
You may have travelled from "Dan
to Bcersheba" but you have never
seen a more beautiful natural park
than Glenburnie. This park is free
for the use of the public at all times
and hundreds of families will take ad
vantage of the holiday July 4th, by
spending the entire day at Glenburnie
and the Fair grounds.
All boats on July 4th will run from
the foot of Pollock street, and will
begin at 9 o'clock in the morning.
By 12 o'clock the rush will be on,
so go early and avoid the rush.
All boatmen have agreed not to
charge more or less than 15c. each
way so if any one tries to charge more
than 15c. just refuse to pay it and re

Richmond, Va., June 24. Carlton
McCarthy, former Mayor of Richmond,
gave a sensational turn to the typhoid
fever epidemic controversy to-day,
when at the session of the administra
tive board, of which he is a member,
and which controls the water system
of the city, took the floor on a point
of personal privilege.
He termed an article and an editorial
in yesterday's Times-Dispatch relative
to the board's delay- in acting on the
water question as deliberate lies and
hurled denunciations at the proprietors
and editors of the paper, despite the
efforts of cooler heads among the
members of the board, who sought to
calm him. i
Captain McCarthy said a McNamara
was needed in Richmond to destroy
the newspaper plant owned by the
Bryan estate, and in the heat of his
speech he offered a motion that the
administrative board instruct the City
Engineer to place bichloride of mercury
in the pipes leading to the Laburnum
property, owned by the Bryan estate,
and into the pipes running to the new
10-story building occupied by the
Times-Dispatch. The motion was not
Considered by the board.
Dr. E. C. Levy, chief health officer
of Richmond, recently asserted that the
prevailing typhoid visitation was caused
by city water, the noxious conditions
having arisen when one of the basins
was cleaned out. He recommended
that a bichloride plant be installed to
purify the water and prevent the spread
of the malady.
The board was impressed with the
denial of City Engineer Boiling that
anything was wrong with the water
and, ignoring the recommendations
of the city health officer, ordered Dr.
J. M. Whitfield, City Chemist, to make
an analysis of the water. This delayed
preventive measures.
While there have been no deaths
since last week from typhoid, the num
ber of cases increased by four to-day,
making a total of 52. Because the
administrative board went over the
head of Dr. Levy, who is recognized
as the best health officer the city has
ever had, having reduced the death
rate from typhoid two-thirds in six
years, the Times-Dispatch editorially
criticised the board's action, closing
with these words:
The people of Richmond can sub
mit to waste, delay, petty politics,
jealousy and ignorance in money
matters. They will not submit
to the risk of life for any reason
in the world. The life of one child
is worth the whole $25,000 paid
five men to protect the city by
quick and responsive action. If one
death can be traced to this delay,
these men will be crushed by a
savage public opinion and an eternal
remorse. They had best heed the
warning. They are playing with
life. The public demands protection.
Captain McCarthy said the articles
were a stab at him and affected his
wife and children. They might have
been written by men who may be
drunken buzzards or absolutely in
sane, he declared. He added:
1 have written John Stewart Bryan,
president of the Times-Dispatch over
my own signature that if he continues
these assaults he does so at his own
hazard. The State will not be big
enough to hold both of us, and if he
continues to make the assaults I will
cut his throat as I would cut the throat
of a butcher's dog.
What we need is a McNamara and
a quantity of dynamite. No more
patriotic act could be done by any
man than the dynamiting ot tne
Times-Dispatch Building."

Mr. Okazaki left Tokio April 17 on

he received from the Marquis his re
"Our party is in favor of friendly
relations with the United States,"
said Mr. Okazaki. "We know what
the sentiment toward us is in the West
ern States and I want to learn what
its the sincere sentiment toward us
in the East, not the sentiment of
courtesy. We believe that President
Wilson, Secretary Bryan and the Ameri
can Government and the Eastern States
generally have a very friendly feeling
toward us.
"In the first place we do not wish
to become citizens of the United States.
We understand that your Supreme
Court has decided that only those of
the Caucasian and African races can
become citizens of your country. As
to the question of land ownership
in the United States that is still, as I
understand it, a matter for diplomacy.
"J ..pan is careful not to send any

Consuls and the Embassy at Wash

Secretary Bryan an 1 other officials
of the United States and public and
prominent men. I have letters of in
troduction to many here.
"When Secretary of State Bryan
visited Japan I was a member of the
committee on his reception, and I
hope he will remember me. I do not
know President Wilson personally, but
I hope to meet htm. I shall be three
days in New York, a week in Wash

"I want to assure you that Japan
!not against the United States. War
between Japan and the United States
sounds nonsensical. In the first place,
there is no reason for war. Secondly,
where will Japan get the money for
war? Those newspapers in Japan
that talk of war are insignificant and
not widely read. All we want is to be
treated nicely in the United States."
Mr. Okazaki is a baseball fan. "I
am chairman of baseball in Japan,"
said he. "I love to see Americans
play the game, they play so smart, nice
and closely. I am going to see the
game tomorrow at the Polo Grounds
between the New Yorks and the Brook-lyns."
Then Mr. Okazaki, peace apostle'
drew a very small and costly camera
from his vest pocket and snapped the
