Rebukes Curious People Visiting Him. I Gastonia.—Jacob Vanderburg, ^ ;l7-ycar-old farmer youth, held in j jail here on a charge of murdering five members of his family and burning the Vanderburg home in an attempt to hide the crime last De cember. is growing anxious for his trial to come to the court. He declares that the prison life is so unlike his life on the farm that it is affecting his health, and he wants to "get out.1’ Vanderburg declared that, with the exception of his attorneys, he had not a friend in the world, and that the many people who came to see lum and talk with him were merely the morbidly curious who wanted to try to make him talk, and then go away and misquote him. Because he does not appear merry all the time, Vanderburg believes people think he is brooding over his guilt, but he declares that he has grieved greatly over the loss of his mother, father two sisters, and brother, and that the fact that peo ple say I killed them makes it even worse.” Solicitor Carpenter having an nounced that the trial will probably be held about the’ middle of April, Vanbcrburg today made the follow ing statement: "X read in The Gazette several days ago that the solicitor stated that he would try my case about the middle of April,” says Jake. “I hope that it will be tried then. I have been restless and uncomforrt able in jail, because I cannot take exercise, and I jlo not feel well. X have been on the farm all my life doing farm work, and taking exer cise every day, and to be shut up between four walls changes my way of living and its keeps me from feeling well. "My life in jail has been just the opposite from what I have been used to. I am 17 years old and all that time I have lived on the farm, and except the time when X was in school, haven’t had much chance to mix w'ith people. Now, all my family have been taken away from me, and they are charging me with killing them. "Because I do not look merry all the time, people say X am brooding and guilty. No one knows how much 1 have grieved for my par ents, brother and sisters. No one who has not experienced shock from the loss of their loved ones knows what X have been through. Tills is awful, but to have people say I killed them when I didn’t, makes it worse. "Except my lawyers, I do not know anyone who is my friend. People come and talk, but I realize that they arc not my friends. Many of them go out and misquote what I have said, and try to judge wheth er I am guilty or insane by the way I look and feel. I also know that many are trying to deceive me and betray me. "The state had a man put in my cell who belongs to the Burns de tective agency, and he stayed in there for hours one night, making out he was a prisoner. He thought he fooled me, but he didn't. I told him I had nothing to soy to him. "Then the state allowed Mr. Scott a state detective from the insurance department, to come into my ceil and force himself on me for three or four hours. He wrote out some thing which I did not read, and he read it over and said it was merely a brief statement about the fire. 1 told him he had not wTltten it as I had told him, and he said that didn't make any difference and gave it to me to sign. Then this man Taylor who was convicted in the federal court for embezzlement said lie had six other ‘come backs’ against him after lie got out. He has been telling lots of things not true saying he had tales which I had written. I did not and he knows I didn't, although he and that man that they call Col. Mor gan tried, to get me to say that could fix up a tale of self defense for me, and I told them I had al ready truly stated how it had all happened, and X didn't want them to fix up anything for me. ‘'They tell me that this man who calls himself Col. Morgan, and who made an agreement with my attor neys for me, to try to find out who it was, was acting double, and really making out that he was working for me. He said he had fooled my at torneys when he told them that he was working for me, and that he laughed about it and said that was part of a detective's business to fool people. They say that he later re ceived pay for working and trying to convict me. “One time he said, while he was pretending to be working for me, that Mr. Wagner and the other man belonging to the Burns detective agency In Atlanta who were employ ed by the state to work up a case against me, said alter spending four or five days here investigating, 6nc of them being in my cell trying to fool me by saying he was a prisoner, that they could find out nothing and that they threw up their hands and gave up the iob. Morgan when he came to my cell and was trying to get me to let him make up some sort of tale along with Taylor, said that Wagner and the other man had torn my tale all to pieces and had dug up all sorts of things out at the house. Of course this was not true and was different from what he said before, but he was trying to fool me into believing he was my friend and could make up a tale of self defense, or something else for me. I didn not tell him any thing. "Then two months after the burn ing, he claims he has found a hatchet hidden out there, and some other things. He didn't find it at the place and the Burns man did not find it there, so X reckon he Is trying to fool somebody, but I reck on he is the one who is being fool ed. "All sorts of people come in and talk to me and ask me questions, aud I try to keep away from them, but what people get out and say that I said things that I didn't. All I ask for is a fair trial, and I hope that this will be given to me before long. I think when people know all about it and what I have to say. they will find out that I am not guilty of killing the only people on earth that I had any family ties with, my own father, mother and brother and sisters.” NOTICE OF SALE OF PERSONAL PROPERTY.
