Bazemore to be
Tried for Life
Again June 27
Alleged Slayer Gordon
Yelverton Awaits His 1
Trial at Snow Hill
George Prank Bazemore, who is
now in the prison at Raleigh
auditing a new trial, win be taken to
Snow HiM June 27, where ho wiU face
a Green County .court for the sec
' ond time to answer a chaqge of flrst
~*gr*e munder. He is charged wfth
killing Gordon Yelverton, 16-year-old
boy of thy» town, in the early morn
ing of Friday, November 5, on the
I'ighway between FarmviHe and Wil
son, while the boy was en route to
Wilson with a truck load of tobacco
A*t the first trial, held in Decem
ber, Bazemore wae convicted of first
degree murder and sentenced to the
oledtric chair.
He was granted reprieve while
his case went to the supreme court
on appeal. A new trial was granted
the prisoner, not on the grounds of
lack of evidence orfault in the jury,
hi* by a technical error of the trial
judge, who did not go to the court-
Mouse to take the verdict of the jury
in the presence of the prisoner, but
who perrnktAod the clerk of the court
t» take the verdict. This is ground
for a new trial under our laws, when
the penalty for the offense is death.
Nlo one saw the actual killing of
young Yelverton. Yeit there is doubt
as to the guilt of Bazetnore. It is
doubtful if the State has ever tried
a case with a more perfect chain of
circumstantial evidence. Every con
tention pirt forth by Bazemore at the
firat rtiaJ was proven false by
a double ,)ine of testimony.
The crime ,was one of the .most das
tardly and cold-blooded that has been
committed in this section in many
years.
witn«ws€* from this
section have been summoned to ap
pear in Snow Hill for the triaJ.
Columbia to
Detroit by Air
Flies From Virginia City
to Columbia in
40 Minutes
No, it wa.snt Lindbergh, it was a
Mr. Vaughn, of Detroit, who guided
his plane over the city yesterday
morning. Lindbergh'*) flight across
the ocean no *>ubt cause the plane's
appearance hem to attract more than
usual attention.
Mr. Vaughn landed in Columbia
Saturday with 4 passengers from De
troit. He intended to wait there un
til his passengers were ready to re
turn. With nothing but a field to
land in, Mr. Vaughn decided it was
unwise to leave his heavy plane there
because it would .be impossible to
take off should iv rain again, So he
passed over here yesterday, either for
Tarboro or Rocky Mount, where he
intended to land, finding no suitable
landing field at either place, turned
and went to Franklin, Va. He then
notified his passengers at Columbia,
and they arranged a meeting at
Newport News where they took the
air for Detroit.
Just how many stops the plane
made on its way to Columbia are not
known, Jnit it is understood he made
the trip from Newport News to Co
lumbia in 40 .minutes.

Bishop Makes
Annual Visit
Makes Strong Appeal to
Hearers for Loyalty to
Christ and Church
Sunday .morning at the Church of
the Advent, Bishop Thomas C. Darst
prer.ched and administered 'the Rite
of Confirmation to three persons. It
was the annual visitation of the
Bishop and 'the congregation -was
pleased to have him with them again;
for monthe he has been leading the
Bishop's Crustuie in the American
church with headquarters in .Wash
ington City. It was designed 'o place
liim at the of the Evangelistic
movement for four years, in which
time he wouki be away from his
diocese. Loving his people in East
Carolina, he feit that he could not
leave them for so long, and he an
nounced to friends here that he would
remain in the Diocese with his
people. Bishop Darrft is ever the in
teresting preacher, wherever he may
be heard, and Ut always listened to
with pleasure «n Williamrfton. In his
sermon which was based on UtlU.tw
3-16, he declared that sixty-two mil
lion*! of people were outside of the
clwiTeh and fifty-eight millions were
members of some branch of the
Christian church; that thousands
were failing to> take their religion
seriously, and America was drifting
toward a greater and a .more appal
ling indifference which in the end
v/ould wreck the nation. He n>ad« a
strong appeal to hia hoarers for loy
alty to Chri;*. and His Church; he
condemned the negative church raam
ber who is today a hindrance to the
advancement- of the work of the
church in any community.
While in town, Bishop Dai sit was the
guest of Rev. C. O. Pardo at the
rectory. Sunday night, he preached
••A Hamilton and confirmed a number
ol' people. He loft here Monday morn

The $600,000 bridge across tho
Chowan River is scheduled to open on
the 2>ch of next month with an elab
orate program. Notables from over
the Slate are expected to take part
in the program. AH the northeastern

The festivities of the day will include

The formal exercises wil begin at
11 o'clock in the morning at a, point
midway the bridge. Add 1 esses are
(scheduled to begin at noon in front

While not authentic, it is under
stood that toll charges on the bridge
will vary from 10 cents to s2eoo. It
b&s been rumored th»t trucks will go
arrotw a,t a cosit of s'2, passenger cars
at sl, and on }own the line to bi

was made for the pedestrian charge;
but since the bridge is so—over a mile
ajul a half—4t is not likely that that
class of truffle will cause much con
cern.
Urgesßuilding
For Fire Safety
Erect Buildings With
Highest Degree of
Incombustibility
In reviewing measures now being
taken by the International Associa
tion of Fire Chiefs to combat the ap
palling loss of life und property by
fire in the United States, Fire Chief
H. D. Harrison points out that one
of the most effective ways to reduce
the fire danger is to give such build
ings as we erect the highest degree
or' incombustibility.
"It would be impracticable, of
course, to build an all-fireproof struc
ture," Chief Harrison continued. "In
a residence of this nature the b*ls
would have to be steel or concrete
slabs and furniture- would have to bi
oi a similar materia). There could be
no draperies, rugs, linen, and cloth
ing. But it never is impracticable
to construct a building at. fire-safe as
is compatible with comfort."
"Take the average wood frame
house as an example. When the wood
frame is covered with a sheathing of
wood, and this in turn iatcovcied with
wood siding; and when the lath under
the plaster and the shingles on the
roof are of wood, you have a highly
combustible, conflagration-breeding
type of construction—one that would
put surrounding structures in jeop
ardy if a fire should break out, par
ticularly if there were a high wind
blowing. For a high wind would car
ry burning embers to adjoining roofs
anil scatter sparks far anil wide."
"Bui it is probably a long way off
tefore wood frame houses will be al
together abandoned, particularly sinc
the development of modern building
materials has resulted in a protected
type of wood construction that re
tains all the good features of the all
wood house."
"In building such a fire-protected
wood house the wood frame is erected
in the regular manner. But instead
of a sheathing of wood being applied
over the frame, an incombustible type
of sheathing is now used. This pro
tects the frame from the outside. To
protect it from the inside a metal or
rock lath is used in place of wood
lath. With a roof covering of as
bestos or other fire-resistive material,
a house so built possesses as high a
degree of protection from fire as is
possible in a frame structure."
Chief Harrison feels 'hat prevent
in# fires is just as important a part
of the local fire department's work
as fighting fires, and along with the
thousands of other fire chiefs through
out the country he is actively coop
erating with the International Asso
ciation of Fire Chiefs in its great
"1927 is Fire Prevention Year" move
ment, which, it U hoped, will acquaint
the public with means for reducing
the annual fire toll.

Large Crowds
Hearing Dr. A.
F. DeGafferelly
"Slaves ii* Williamston"
Is Sermon Subject
For Tonight
The evangelistic services at the lo
cal Christian Church continue to hold
the irtterest of many church goers of
tlm r town. Dr. A. F. Dv' lalferelley,
tlte evangelist, is i> vet.v forceful
speaker, and Is plflisin* the large
crowds.at each sen-ice.
On Friday night Evangelist DeGaf
ferelly preached on the question,
"Can a Man Be Sawed Without Join
ing the Church?" "L«t me ask first,"
he said, "How can a man know when
he is converted? Not by mere emo
tional feeling but by complying with
God's .will as revealed in His Word.
He must know that conversion is ac
tive, not passive. There are certain
divine conditions. Now, when a man
has oomplied with these, does that
make him a number of the church?
It does. Pardon takes place in the
mind of God an 1 not in the mind of
the sinner. We can only merit tlutt
pardon by doing God'a will. ■ The
church was founded by Ci'rist for the
spiritual abiding place of His follow
ers. Every man who is a Christian
is a, member of that church."
Sunday morning, Or. I> GatTerelly j
led the people to feel'the urge of'
making: Christian progre.-> in his mas
s«igu on the theme, "Goin; Forward
With Christ." He pointed out many
forceful reiwons why Chrfetians
should go forward with Chriitt." A
mortg thcae are he law of human
relationships, the superior profession,
'the ability, knowledge. Some laws
which govern .progress, he said, are
cutting loose from the past, leaving
the usellows fo.r the useful A vision,
a focussed vision, undauiirtmi courage
for attempting the hunuu ly impossi
ble, use the .means At hand, dedicat-'
ing the whole life to the whole task.
Sunday night, he le*i tlx* people to
great height's in his message on
"What Why 1 lidliov ■ " He said
that life Ims no higher treasure than
a; clear and comimiiKling faith. He
told of his faith in the fftblc, not as
a s'ory aboi/t God but a.s a revela
tion of God giving Himself to man
in those experiences in which man
experienced God. He said that he
believed ini Gol as more than a great
power working itsellf out in a great
machine, but as a personal God, a
presenft God, as /t father, Love
seated upon a throne. As o faith in
Christ, he said, "Immanuel ,Kant, the
said that all life could tic
summed up in three questions: "What
tun I know; what must I do; and
for what may I hope." Jesus alone
fully answers these. We believe
with St. Paul that we see the light
of the knowledge of the glory of God
in the face of Jesus Ohrist. We
know God through and in Christ Je
sus. Jewun shows man what he must
do ,by giving to him the great ideal
of life. Jesi*s Uuight mafn that hf
can undisappointingly hope for lal
vation through Him."
Last ,nigWt the evanjrelint used as
a subject .for his .sermon, "Conversion
in a life picture." He ba«ed his re
marks on the conversion of the Ethi
opian Eunuch. "l A*, us consider this
theme," he said, "under three divis
ions: The eunuch as an inquirer; the
eunuch .us a hearar; ajnl the eunuch
a* As a/i inquirer, he point
ed out, he .was moral and religious,
but not a Christian. He waaited to
know th" trtfth,«inJ God sent Phillip,
the evangelist, into his life, and he
learned concerning Jesus. As a hear
er, he was preparer! by studying the
word of God. He heard intelligently
and interestedly. He not only heard
l.ift beli'-ved things that he heard.
It is wrong to ,(>• iy to God to send
converting power until we have told
men what to do to be saved. As a
doer, the eunuch did not oppose with
mime excuse, but said, "Whtot doth
hinder me to be baptized," and was
baptized and went on his way re
joicing. Feeling follows doing. Af
ter he had done wha>t God reve-aled
to him to do he rejoiced- greatly."
Tonight Dr. DeGafTerelly will speak
on "Slaves in Williams ton."

expense, to knock one William Grimes
down with a shoe-whine '.ox Saturday
night. The evidence in the case was
very brief. Whitley asked Crimen
why he didn't go home. Crimes
asked Whitley was it any of his busi
ness why he did sot go home. Then
it was that Whitley hit Crimes in
the mouth with the shine box and
grounded him. The bout took place
at J. K. Colt ruin's store on the edge
of town. The Mayor's other case
came about when one Henry Carson,
colored, took on a little too much of

School
in Favor
Inquiry Into Election 13
Thought To Favor
Proposal
The propaal to enlarge the Wilham-
school di.-it i let a l the special elec
tien On July sth seems to be making
(food headway now. For a while it
seemed to iiitei some opposition, but
those oppo ,ing the enlarged .school,
I'ointf substantial citizens, were
willing to inquire as to what it would
mean to enlarge the district; and, as
is generally the ca.se, when it be
came so ajipari-nt that it meant -a,
much better school for their children
it tended to reconcile them.
It is a line spirit tihal man shows
when he counts it a worth-while op-
portunity to i tiuca'e his children
There was a day when only a part 01
the people thought it paid to educate
a boy, and a very few thought girls
should be • educated at all. But as
knowledge sends its shafts of light
deeper and deeper into the minds of
men, they become more and more
aroused to (the need of education for
all the people.
In the old days peopU willing
for the educated few 'o attend .to
their attains for them, Jjift now each
individual finds pleasure in doing hi»
own thinking and transacting his own
business.
Nothing has hurt the country dis-
TVicts of the tftate and Xtution as
much as the need for adequate
schools. Families leave (food country
homes and move to some place where
they can reach a better.school. Con
sequently, the farm goes down arid
many times the new surroundings do
not fit well to the needs.
The new idea of giving every child
the same chance at the same school
Whether he lives in the heart of the
city or in the remotest part of the
"backwoods," will be one of the fin
est things that-we can do to stabilize
and give proper balance to society.
It ,will eliurinate that old idea that "I
eni wiser than thou."
The principles of democracy de
mand that all subjects be triated a
like in order that all men might be
able to take part in their government.
The teaching; of the autocnU is, "You
work and I will take care of your bus
iness," is so well underwood thut our
people, seem anxious to see a school
so democratic that no chiltl from the
r« nwxtefit corners of the community
shall not receive the full and equal
privilege of an education.
The election, which if carried will
give this district a liWter school, will
be held on Tui\sluiy, July 5. The
registration U»oks are now open and
will not clo.se until June 25. A new
regitrtratuMi is rei|uiretl for the elec
tion, which means that every one who
would vote must register before the
books ctose, s»s of how many
times you have registered and voted
before. All those who register and
do ,ru>t vote at all will l>* vounted as
agaiiwt the proinu&d, a-, a majority of
the qualified voters mu. t vote for the
proposal in order to carry the elec
tion.
Superior Court
Starts Monday
Will (Jo Only One Week
with Few Cases on
Two Dockets
The June term of superior court for
this county will convene here next
week with Judge It. A. Nunn, of
New Hern, in charge. The June term
is of the brief variety, only one week
hfing devoted to the hearing of both
crimnal and civil coses.
There are 14 cases on'the'criminal
*
docket, many of them being of very «.
little importance. One or two go to
the court next week from the record
er's court on appeal. Oscar Wynne
luis announced his guilt in his murder
case, and very little time will be used
in clearing it from the docket.
Rphriam Woolard, colored, charged
with manslaugWter, will have his case
go before the term next week. The
ether criminal cases coveir various
charges, and .since it is not likely
that all the cases on the docket will
come up for trial, only a small por
tion of .the week will be devoted to the
criminal docket.
