THE WASHINGTON TIMES. SATURDAY, MARCH 29, 1913.
Father and Son Left Letter in
Which They Declare They
Acted in Self-Defense.
That the were not sullty of the
crimes charged against them, and for
which they went to their death in the
Virginia penitentiary, was declared In a
letter left by Floyd Allen and his son.
Claude. In this letter, which was
lengthy, the Aliens protested their inno
cence of conspiring to wipe out the
court officials; reiterated that they act
ed In self-defense, and charged that
they were brought to their doom
through the evidence of their political
enemies and alleged prejured testimony,
while testimony favorable to them was
not considered by the authorities In Its
Claude Allen wrote:
"From my earliest recollections I was
taught to speak the truth In everything
and deal honestly with my fellow man.
which 1 have tried to do. Our parents
have tried to raise us to feel that we
must be honorable, and under no condi
tion speak falsehoods.
"I am not guilty of the charge of con
spiracy. I had too much love for my
dear mother and my sweetheart. If
there had been nothing else to keep me
from planning a deed which would have
separated me from them forever on
"If any one willingly falsely testified
against me, I forgive them. I did not
know Judge Massie. Those who have
wronged me I forgive, and hope that we
will meet in a "better world, where sor
row Is never known. Praying God's
blessings upon our dear old State and
her people, I say farewell."
Forgives His Enemies.
Floyd Allen's letter went into details
as to his political foes and the ene
mies he made because of doing his
duty while deputy sheriff of Carroll
county years ago. Thanking friends
for their efforts In his behalf, he
"I forgive all my enemies those who
have testified falsely against me and
those who have not dealt fairly with
me. I hope God will also forgive
them. Shortly we will have to stand
before our God, and each will give an
account of our treatment of the other.
The true factB will all tnen be known.
1 have told the truth. I am Innocent
of the charge of which I am convicted,
and I have no fear of meeting my God
in connection with the crime for which
I am dying.
"I hope the lives of my family which
1 leave behind will show, as far as
'possible, to the world that we have
been wronged. I hope by their lives
that they will contradict the state
ments and untruths that have been
stated against us."
Leaders of the Clansmen.
Floyd and Claude Allen were the
leaders of the six clansmen who made
the attack In the little courthouse at
HHIsville. Va, on March 14. 1912, and
killed five persons in the courtroom,
including Judge Thomas L. Massie,
Commonwealth's Attorney Foster,
Sheriff Webb, and two others.
This wholesale murder was the ex
pression of the outlaws' resentment
against the imposing of a sentence
upon old Floyd Allen for interfering
with an officer of the law.
After the shooting Floyd Allen was
wounded while trying to get away
with his fellow clansmen, and was
easily captured. His son Claude made
good his escape, but was captured on
March 28, In a lonely cabin in the
mountains, near the North Carolina
At the trial of Floyd and Claude Al
len much sympathy was expressed for
the younger man, and after they were
sentenced to be executed a public pe
tition asking for a reprieve of the
sentence In the case of the son was
submitted to the governor.
Granted Four Reprieves.
Four times the execution of the
two Aliens was postponed by execu
tive clemency. They were ttrst sen
tenced to die on November 23. Tliey
were granted a reprieve of one month,
and before the time had expired they
were granted a second respite until
January 17. Twice the case was be
fore the State supreme court.
Floyd Allen was the leader of thi
mountain clan, which had been a law
unto itself in the mountains of south
ern Virginia for many years. His
followers, who participated in the
HUlsvllle raid, were: Sidnsf Allen and
his nephew, Wesley Edwards, the
last of the raiders to bo captured,
tentenceij to thirty-five and twnty
acven years in prison, respectively;
Krlel Allen, the youngest of the clan,
to fifteen years, and Sldna Edwards
to eighteen years.
Victor Allen, another ton of Floyd
Allen, the only member off the clan
to be released, was acquitted by a
Jury at Wytheville, Va The Jury
was convinced that young Victor tool:
no part In tlie shooting. Hyrd Mar
lon, a relative of the Aliens, was In
dicted with them, but wan a State
witness, and the case ugalnst him wa-j

Baltimore's Paint and Powder
Club Delights Big Audience
at the Belasco.
Just how much pleasure and profit
can be obtained from amateur theatri
cals was clearly shown yesterday after
noon when the Paint and Powder Club,
of Baltimore, gave its performance at
the Belasco Theater. "Florodora," the
everlasting, was given by dathlng young
men and dashing young "women." with
large hands and feet and rich contralto
The principal roles were surprisingly
well acted, and the chorus, while a lit
tle laboriously graceful at times, was
well trained and sang with much gusto.
TVtthout mention of Lady Holyroocl, a
grievous error would be committed, for
she was the paragon of grace, charm
and vivacity. Charles Andrew McCann,
indeed, is an artist of the first water,
and the unqaulitied success of the en
tire performance was due to the ex
ceeding fascination of Lady Itolyrood.
Joseph W. Swlkert took the part or
Gllfaln, and Arunah S. A. Brady was a
gladsome Donegal. Hlb duet in act 1.
"Galloping," with Angela, was as good
as anything seen In some of the
musical comedies which have appeared
here. Dolores, by Howard Hill, was
marked more for unusual beauty than
for vocal ability, although her softly
sung pongs were pleasing.
Clapham Murray, Jr., was Anthony
Tweedlepunch, and Abercoed, played by
nichard H. Bond, displayed an excel
lently trained voice of rare quality. In
terpolatlons of original dances and
movements were received enthusiastical
ly. A word can be said for the audi
ence, a friendly and a generous one
which filled every seat and left a Tew
persons standing in the aisles. The per
formance, which was for the benefit of
the Christ Child Society, was a decided
success from every point of view.
DEBUT IN CONCERT
Noted Pianist Appears for the
First Time in Program at
the Columbia Theater.
A program of generous proportion
was given by Max Pauer, pianist,
at the Columbia Theater yesterday
afternoon, upon the occasion of his
first concert appearance In this city.
Previously he appeared as the soloist
of the Boston Symphony Orchestra
at the February performance, and
left an excellent Impression, but the
concert of yesterday ras a disap
pointment to many. While I'auer
showed no lack of muscular control,
and executed more difficult passages
with great skill and clarity of tone,
crescendos and diminuendos seemed to
lack the gradual opening and closing
of tonal volume which is so neces
sary. The Moonlight Sonata of
Beethoven, instead of revealing any
of the remarkable gossamer beauty
of which it is capable, was Interpret
ed In an almost hypnotic uniformity,
not unpleasing, but quite different
from the usual.
Unfortunately, the closeness of the
stage setting made a peculiar rever
beration in the pedaling of the first
number, the Bach organ concerto In
D minor, which was disturbing. Two
Brahms and three Chopin numbers
were given, the Ballade In O minor,
of trip second master, being brilliant
Of the last four numbers, two by
Liszt, one being the Twelfth Khap
sody. and the other two by Debussy
anil Zanella. the Debussy number was
quite delightful. It possessed the
idealism which was quite lacking In
others of the more colorature num
