Baglcy Confessed
La?t Friday the forms of the paper
were held open so that a messnge
might be received containing in
formation about the electrocution j
of Brad Barley,- The main /'acts
as "received from Wat den Sale were
published. This menage stated
that B.glcy made uo confession;
but'that he talked rs the straps'
were beinc adjusted about his face
and head. What the words were,
the Warden failed to hear. The
doomed rain hud written to friend-;
here that he was innocent of the
murder of Captain White, though |
he had never made any effort id
prove an alibi on th£ "'ght ot ti 11
Hii spiritual adviser, Ju-bua
Griffin, had eshowtted every means
by word of his own and* that con
tained in th-i "Scripture-* to induce
hira to confess But the man, so
soon to die, a-:ver di.spnired until;
just a bhort while before the hour
tcr his death. He h«d some hope
that something would be clone for
him evtu in those last moments.
So he walked unfalteringly to the
death chair. But when all hope
was gone and the electrical fixcurss
were being placed about his bod)*,
with the awful fact of eternity
staring him in the face, he.for the
6rst time realized the great load
upon bis foul and murmured? "I
am a guiltv man." There were
those from Williamston who heard
his words and hi* call for God to
have mercy on his soul.
There bad never been any doubt
among the citizens of Williamston
as to Bagley's guilt even though
he should have died with cosed
lips, but it is best that be confessed
ere his soul went to eternity. His
body was embalmed and brought
here Saturday, and Sunday an im
mense crowd cf his race attended
the burial.

El Baile Club
The young men of the tovtu have
recently formed the El Baile Club
for rmtual pleasure and enjoyment.
Strictly speaking it is a Club which
will pive each week a dance ou
Thurtdav evening. The name El
Baile was handed down from gen
eration to generation by the Moors
and in history it is first spoken of
in connection nith some ffstival
during the days of the Spanish
Main. It wa>; taken to Mexico by
the Spaniards and those care-free,
pl«asu:e-lcvi:ig people use it to
expreis au;useiceot. The members

A. C. L. R. R. Criticised
Wkeu the realroad company con
sented to elevate the track above
Main Street extension just this'
side of Martin's farm, it was
thought that the company would
build a cement arch inder which 1
the street would pass. Not so,
however, for there is nothing ex
cept unsightly wooden piling there
to support the track. The citizens
of the town have severely criticised
the company's action. They want
a more, endurable and attractive
structure there. After voting for
good roads, the people desire to
bave them built as attractive as
possible under the natural condi
| tions. The Coast Line should ac
cede to the demands of the people
and give them something worth

I Mr. Editor:
I notice the announcement of
| Judge George P. Pell, as a candi
date for Corporation Commissioner,
j There aee several special reasons
whv he should be nominated, The
fir-t reasons way he should he
nominated is tl\e fact that, as we
al l know, the Corporation Com
mission is a court and needs mem
bers of judicial experience, as
its decisions must be reviewed by
the Supreme Court of the State.
Pell has had experience upon
the Superior Court bench, aud has
been trained to hold the scale.; of
Ju-tiee even-handed between the
railroads and the people. He will
certainly taks care of the people's
end of i£.
' This ysar there are two vacancies
to fill on the Commission. For cue!
of the'se vavancies only Eastern
men are candidates, so the Eastern
Democracy will certainly fill one of
these vacancies. Why not give-the
other vacancy to the _Ceptaal and;
Piedmont Counties, and nominate,
this splendid and proficient Demo
crat, Judge Pell.
I sincerely trust that our Demo
crats in Martin will sec it as I do,
and will instruct for Judge Pell.
I am,
Yours very truly,
J. C. Robertson.
