ligion for the Baptists in the Roan
oke Association.

Oak City Negroes
in a Free-For-All
Oak City was the scene of a cut
ting, clubbing, and shooting frolic
Sunday night, when John and Norman
Jones got into combat with Ben Fur
vis, Spencer Hyman, and Thurston Hy
man. All the participants are col
ored.
The row apparently occured over
some gasoline, yet some suggestion
cf a woman in the case appeared.
At any rate, things got lively when
one of the Jones succeeded in slip
ping a knife blade in Purvis' shoul
der and some of the gang tried out
a Coca-Cola bottle on Jones' cranium,
which produced plenty of blood but
nc broken bones. The fun, however,
iid not reach its full blast until a
gun flashed anil the noise aroused the
town. The load took effect in the calf
of Thurston Hyman's leg. The shot
was very amall chilled shot, so small
that they ilid not go very deep. This
shot did not end the fight, for anothei
crash came, this time the load of shot
struck Bpencer Hyman in the back
and right side; and then came an
other, at such close range that the
load tore through his right thigh, bu%
not deep enough to do very much
harm.
No arrests had been made up to
yesterday .afternoon.

Sparrow Caught Here
From Pennsylvania
On August 7, 1926, James Spear
ph.ced a band of the Biological Sur
vey around an English Sparrow's leg
at Wallingford, Pa. Just what course
the bird took from that city is not
known. The next thing heard of the
bird was when Mr. Simon D. Perry,
of Williamston rotfte 4, trapped it in
a deadfall the early part of this
month.
During the heavy snow, Mr. Perry
prepared a deadfall at the request ofj
his children, and it was then that the
Pennsylvania Sparrow revealed his
identity. The band bore the stamp of
the Biological Survey, Washington, D.
C. and through the number, 181,062,
OIJ the band the bird's course was
partly traced.

Judge Reviews
Crime History
States that 98 of Every
100 Criminals Are
Never Punished
Judge Romulus A. Nunn opened his
frr?t term of court In Martin County
Monday morning, with State Solicitor
Gilliam prosecuting the docket. This
term 1s for the trial of both criminal
and civil cases.. The civil calendar 1
will begin tomorrow.
Judge Nunn gave a considerable his-1
tory of crime in the world today. He
said that there is about 10,000 mur
ders in the United States each year;
that in 20 years past therehave been
175,000 murders and of that vast num
ber only 1,500 have been executed by
hanging or electrocution. According
to his figures, about 20,000 of the mur
derers have died; another 18,rtOO are
now in prison, with 135,000 of them
still at large and going free among
other men in the country; that there,
arc 50,(KM) more murderers at large j
in the United States than there arej
policemen in every town and city in |
the nation.
Continuing, there are 10,000 more
murderers going at large than our en-!
tire standing army; and there ure'
more people who haVe committed mur
der in the United States than then* j
are prisoners in every jail, lock-up, or
penitentiary, national, State, and mu
nicipal.
While we had 10,000 murders in
1924, England had 100 and France had I
400. We had 80,000 burglaries find
61',000 robberies. England and Wales
had ,211, anil France had 47.
In North Carolina, crimes are just
a little above the high average for
the United States.
It is claimed by the leading au
thorities that a majority of those who
commit capital felonies *are never de
tected, and only 2 per cent are pun
ished. That is, 98 of every 100 people
who commit arson, rape, murder, or
burglary are never punished. Judge
Nunn said the crime of burglary has |
increased IHOO per cent in 10 years.
The judge went far enough to clear-1
ly intimate that society neods more
protection today than prisoners; more 1
penal institutions, and fewer hotels
for prisoners. We have made prison
life so attractive that men are break-!
inu in rather than breaking out. Ho
commended the law of New York,
which inflicts unpardonable life iin- j
prsonment oiv~flny person for his 1
fourth conviction of any crime for a
felony.
The jurist stated that the old say
ing, ''lt is better for 99 guilty persons {
to escape than for one innocent man !
to be punished" has been the cause of
much leniency by jurors.
He said that the countries which'
have fewest cf the major offences are 1
diligent in meting out sure and just
punishment for the crimes. In Amer-1
ica, it is quite different. We use the
modern method, get them loose and
lei them kill again.
Judge Nurfn took very little time
in charging the grand the
minor issues or crimes, simply in
structed them in their duties and the
dignity of their position.
The jury is composed of L. 11. Har
rison, formean; W, A. Brown, Alex
Peal, R. A. Edmondson, Arnold L.
Uoberson, J. D. Woolard, G. I). Ward,
G. A. Pel, J. F. Weaver, J. H. Ayers, j

Baptists to Have
Pre-Easter Revival
Following a custom of many years,!
th* pastor of the Memorial Baptist!
Church of Williamston has asked his j
church to make plans for a two-weeks
revival meeting to he held just before
Easter.
Accordingly, the time has been ar
langed, the preacher engaged, and the
meeting is for the first time publicly
I Piinounced.
The special preacher for these meet
ings is Mr. A. O. Moore, of Salisbury, i
He is pastor of the First Baptist
Church of that city, which is a great
and growing church. Mr. Dickey was
in Salisbury last year while Rev.
Moore was conducting his own reviv
al. and heard him preach in his own
church. From hearing him in his own
revival, Mr. Dickey was so charmed by
his preaching that he wanted him for
tlie people of this section.
It is a soltyce of great gratification
to the local Paptist people to be able
to announce, therefore, that Mr. Moore
,*fll come to Williamston and Martin
County for a revival meeting just be
fore Easter. -

Seine Fishing: Starts
on the Old Roanoke
Seine fishfrtg started in the
Koanoke at Jumesville yesterday
morning after a few days' de
lay caused by hitch water.
The catcher were reported to
be small and that the fishermen
had much trouble with snags
and logs in the river. The seine
was completely torn in two once
when it was caught ovej a log.
After two hours, however, the
break was mended and fishing
started anew.
Each year thousands of peo
ple visit the fisheries on the
Koanoke and this season will see
a like number going to see the
fish trapped by the thousands.

Officers Seize
Several Stills
One Found on Platform
in Turkey Swamp
Friday Morning
Deputy Sheriff Grimes and P. A. j
liallard, while hunting in Turkey j
sv.-amp last Friday, found a big still j
luilt on a platform with water all j
around it. The water was not very
dtvp -however, but it was deep enough
to hinder parties in their search for
stills. The kettle was bricked suitable
for a permanent service and was
warm when the officers arrived, it
having been fired a few hours earlier.
The output of the still had been re
h cved and only nine barrels of beer
awaited the distiller's hand. I
Last Sunday Sheriff ltoobuck was
asked to look in a certain wood for!
moonshiners. He took Policeman
Hardy, of Everetts, along and after'
a few miles drive they took a side
road into the ■ Gre&t"Branch section
of Itober.-onville township. The con-'
flit ion of the road forced them to
park their car and set out from there
on foot. Right near where they park
ed their car they found another which
they guessed belonged to rum runners.
They took the number of the car and ■
c ontinued their journey in search of I
tlii reported still. A 60-gallon copper
, outfit and 700 gallons of beer const!-!
l tuted their fin* catch. A few hundred j
yards away they made a second !atch,'
but all the beer had been worked up I
and the still was bare.
Further information coupled with
newer circumstances cleared the park
id car from all suspicion. *
It. L. Hight Found Dead
In a Plymouth Hotel
R. L. Hight, middle-aged white man, |
wa* found d»ad in the hotel at Ply-
I mouth yesterday morning shortly af
ter seven o'clock. While no cause for;
his death could be assigned, it is
tliought that an over-indulgence in
the use of liquor brought his life to
an unexpected close. The man had
dressed and was returning to his room
when he fell dead in one of the hotel's
halls.
Mr. High, for the past 15 years,
worked with the Western Union Tele
graph company, serving as a lines
man. About three weeks ago he lost
j ins job with that company, and since
that time he has been unemployed, ac
cording to information coming from
Plymouth. Instructions as to the dis
posal of the body were awaited this
morning by an undertaking establish

Proceedings of
Superior Court
to Noon Today
Jury Will Get Murder
Case About 3:30
in Afternoon
The first case to reach the jury
of the prasent term superior court
was a charge of burglary against
William Taylor, Tom Fleming and \
Wright Smith. Early in this month J
Ihty broke Into a smoke house and
stole 18 hams. They carried the ,meat
to Greenville, where they'tried to sell
it. Failing thete they went to Ayden
and while they were selling ham at
10 cents a pound, the buyers were
tipping-off the police. Neither of the
defendants had a lawyer and each
cross examined the State'- witnesses,
and then told the story for lumself. j
Each of the defendants tried to make
tht story a little better for himself, i
l iving his accomplices to foot the
I penalty. Taylor described his actions
j as he peeded into the residence of j
i Tom Brown, owner oft he meat,
( while the others were doing the steal-'
ing. It seemed thai Smith remained
i.t the car while the others went to
the smoke house.
The jury found no trouble in eon
, vieting the defendants and all were
A'ivt 11 road sentences of six months
The second jury case was against
Jones for driving an automobile
! while drunk. He was convicted but
>up to time of our going to press
sentence h:ul not' been pronounced.
.This case war. appealed from the re
corder's court where It was heard
several months ago.
I>oll Purvis plead guilty to stealing
Frank Weaver's chickens and was
required to pay for the fowls and to
pay the cost of the case. His case
came from the recorder's court.
The first case called this morning
was that aguinst Joseph Hollis, charg
ed with killing John Keel at the
home of Honry Mullock the early part
of lust month. A .venire of 25 men had
been summoned to appear at 9:30
und it only .required a short time to
seloct the 12 men who are to pass on
Hollis' fate.
The State put on Henry Mullock
and I*. A. Mallard, after which tho
| s olicitor for the State resfted. The de- 1
ftnse put on 2) witnesses, the large
number being used mainly to prove
that Keel had threatened the life of 1
Hollis and to prove the good char-'
after of the defendant and the bad ,
1 character of Keel.
The general trend of the testimony
sltowad that ill feelings had existed
■ between Hollis and Keel, that Keel
; made 'threats, that Hollis fortifitd
himself with bullets and pistol and;
' went two miles from his home to that j
I of Mullock where he remained half
i an hour when Keel who lived a hun
! dred yards away came in and .seeing
Hollis demanded a reckoning. Hollis
went from the dining room to the hall
where Keel was and where the killing
recurred, and where the shot man
talked little. Hollis claimed to have
been greatly frightened and hardly
knew what he was doing. He stated
j that Keel struck him with an axe
| handle which was shown in cOurt. He
| was knekod down , ami he thinks
I Keel was beating him when he shot
him. Keel was shot in the head, the
ball glancing and going in the wall of
the house. The bullet that killed the
man uccording to testimony of Hal-'
lard, State':) witness, and Dr. Rhodes, |
struck Keel in the lower part of his j
neck ranging downward about fifteen
inches finally crossing the back ,bone I
to the left side where it was cut out
three and a half inches from the
backbone. This shot. paralyzed thrf
man and caused his death a ferw hours
.later.
It was shown during the trial that
Hollis could have gotten out of the
house without passing Keel, who was
described as backing baek while Hollis
was advancing on him.
The case will go to the jury at
3:30 this afternoon.
The c:ise of .9late against Hyman
n:i ! Ormond, charging them with
forgery, will be called immediately
following the Hollis murder case.

to take the place of Mr. H. M. I'oe,
late manager of the ltoanoke Fair, the
names of several applicants are now
ibefore the association, and an ap

M E. Bundy is Now
k Head Hertford Schools
A late issue of the Hertford News
carries a Prof. Edgar E.
Bundy, which was taken just as he
met a bunch of his school children at
Hertford during the recentj big snow
utorgi. The picture looks almost as
much like a snow manias it does Mr.
Buirty, and it is quite evident that he
net too large a crowd of the children
at one time.
Professor Bundy was for several
year* superintendent of the William
ston schools, and is now superintend
ent of Hertford County schools as well
as head of the city high school of
Hertford,
less.than a hundred farmers in
this and Washington t'ouaty .have
given the reports as gathered by
them in their respective sections,
and in each case the increase in
acreage ranges from l.~> to 23 per
cent. Using the average yield per
acre of last year, the 1927 crop
will amount to around 10,239,100
pounds.
Held Friday in
Robersonville
Schools All Over County
Well Represented by
Committeemen
The last teachers' meeting of the
year was held when 80 of the county's
teachers anil 40 members of the vari
ous school committees met in Rober
sonville last Friday afternoon.
Mr. K. 1. Leake, principal of the
Kobersonville schools, opened this, the
largest meeting of the teachers this
year. The Rev. Mr. Harrell, of the!
Kobersonville Christian Church, read
tlx Scriptural lesaon, and Rev. Mr.
Mason led the assemblage in prayer.
After the minutes had been read and
approved, several business matters re
lltting to school work were brought up
am! a number of changes, made. The '
county commencement, which takes
place here the 22nd of next month, was j
given a few minutes discussion. After j
several suggestions were made, the
dates for the ((roup and general com
mencements were moved up a day in
each case. The group center com
mencements will be held in Hamilton
on the Bth of April, and in Jamesville
on Friday, Apr if 16; the county-wide
commencement taking place here on
the 22nd instead of the 23rti.
Delegates to the North Carolina
Teachers' Kducational Association
were appointed by the body. To the
superintendent's sect fen, Mr. R. A.
Pope, county superintendent, was ap
pointed. Professor Ainsley, of the
Oak City schools, will represent the
principals and high schools at the
ineoting in Raleigh. Miss Rebecca
Former, of the Fveretts school, will j
represent' the grammar grades, and
M iases Annie llarpcr, of WiUiumtrton,
. nd Essie Jordan, ot Jamesville, and
Mrs. Ruth Itrown Winslow, of Cold

primary departments. Miss Klizabeth i
Jones, of the Oak City schools music
department, was chosen from that
field. The meeting begins in Raleigh
Id morrow and continues through Frr
ilay. Some of the country's best edu
c!. to is will appear and talk to the
hundreds of teachers present. The
interchange of ideas among the vari
ous members of the appointed groups
will be one of the main features of the
meeting. .
For the past seevraJ years, our
county has been ably represented at
thrfse State meetings, and the reports
I rought back by the delegates have
been of much help to the members of
the county teaching staff. Heretofore,
these reports have been given by the
delegates at the regular teacher's
meetings, but this year the delegates
will write their reports, which will be
placed before the teachers of the
county through a medium selected by
the county superintendent. Superin
tendent Perpe stated late yesterday
that it might be advisable to call an
other county meeting of the teachers
and have the reports placed before
them in that manner. While another
meeting of the teachers is highly spec
ulative, the need of one was stressed
in the office of the superintendent; but
if other methods of distributing the
delegates' reports are decided upon,
no meeting will be held. ~"

Large Shipment Kitchen
! Cabinets to Local Store
One of the largest shipment,s of
kitchen cabinets ever to Ue shipped in
to Williamston at one time arrived
here the latter part of last week. The
shipment constituted almost a solid
ehi of the famous Seller; cabinets.
Mr. B. S. Courtney, the purchaser,
litn'ted 11kiit the appearance* of tile
American kitchen are fast becoming
the topics in American housekeeping.
Those who recall the old-time kitchen
with the glaring oak woodwork, wood
en sink, and red table cloth remem
ber also what a relief it was when the
glistening white kitchen, so spie and
span, was introduced. It seemed thut
| the very limit in kitchen beauty had
j been reached. Then on top of that
I enterprising and alert manufacturers
i have produced the kitchen cabinet.
Today the cabinet holds an elevated
position over the first designs, and
the carload shipment includes the very
latest. ■>
These new style cabinets are being
shown by Mr. Courtney at his furni
ture Store here and they are well
worth a visit. Certainly with the new
1 kitchen sets and new "homey" effects,
it won't be long before the practice
