VOLUME LVIII, NUMBER 47. ? v ^ NEWBERRY, S. C., TUESDAY, JUNE 13, 1922. TWICE A WEEK, $2.00 A YEAR
GIVEN TO BIGHAM
SHIPP FIXES JULY 14 IN REFUSING
Court Doubts Authenticity of
Florence, June 0.?Judge S. W. G.
Shipp in the sessions court here this
afternoon refused to grant Edmund
D. Bigham a new trial and sentenced
him to be put to death in the electric
chair July 14.
Pio-hsm was convicted of murder in
connection with the killing of his
brother, Smiley Bigham, and is in- i
dieted for murder also for the deaths
of his mother and sister and the latter's
two adopted children. The
wholesale murder took place on the
Bigham plantation in January, 1921.
Bigham was tried in March of last
year. The supreme court dismissed
the appeal and Bighanvs attorneys
sought a new trial on the ground of
after discovered evidence which, they
declared, tended to show that Smiley
and not Edmund Bigham did the killing.
It is not thought the case will
end here. i
Unabashed bv' the sentence of
death, Bigham argued with the court
this afternoon before hundreds of
spectators for the privilege of saying,
/ "Some things I woufd like to tell
now, as this may be my last chance
to speak before these people." The
court replied that "depended on how \
long you will take to tell them." Then
as in afterthought, the court added, j
"Ycu might aa well tell it, though."
Abuses State Witness
Immediately the doomed man
pounced upon Philip H. Arrowsmith,
local attorney, who was an important
witness in the conviction of ISijrham
for the wholesale murder.
"I would have liked to have seen
Mr. Arrowsmith here,'' he said, in I
opening. "I would like to have him j
standing right here," indicating the j
center cf the court room. "I would j
tell the reason Arrowsmith accused j
me right to his?"
Whatever he intended to have tsaid ;
probably will never be spoken, for j
the court stopped him sumtoarily with !
r-aminAar +Vi;?r Hp W?S not UD there i

to make a speech but to state any j
legal reason he might have why sen-!
tence should not be passed upon him. j
"I never studied law," said Big- j
ham, beginning on the line which the j
court had indicated1 he must follow in j
his discussion. "I am ready to meet i
my God and am not guilty. The rea- j
son I am convicted is because of the
falsehoods which have been piled up i
. against me. I may have to die. In !
fact, that's what I am up here in this !
prisoner's dock for now. It's hard
to die for something one did not do. 1
"Jesus Christ had to die so. He !
prayed for the night to pass from

me and stuck out to have me killed

state some reason why I should have !
a new trial?one more chance. No
one knows it all except God and myself.
If there's any way you could
give me another trial, just one day
more in court, I would appreciate it.
The state has four other cases against
me. I never had a fair trial. The
verdict of that stands against me."
Bigham repeatedly avowed his in- i
nocence and as often averred that;
innocent blood would be shed when j
he was executed.
"I worked hard and had laid !by
some means," he said in the earlier
part of his statement to the court.
4,But for my property, no one ever
would have accused me. But they
know that when the juice is turned
on to me, it'll be money in their j
Thereafter he likened himself to :
St. Paul, to John, the Baptist, and to !
Christ Himself, all their blood having j
been shed innocently. "But I'll rise.
in glory with them."
He challenged the state to confront ;
him, even when he will be buckled
in 10 the death chair in the penitentiary
in Columbia, with one person
vho can say truthfully that he ever j
did him a single wrong or injury.

FOR BISHOP KILGO
Arrives Safely at Home in Charlotte
From Hospital in
Charlotte, N. C., June 9.?Bishop
John C. Kilgo of the Methodist Episj
copal church, South, who has been ill
I in Memphis, arrived at his home here
tonight under the care of Dr. B. F.
Turner and two trained nurses. He
; stood the trip well, according to Dr.
Tnvwnv w Vin sm'H that, his natient had
had a good day. The bishop himself
appeared in fine spirits and joked,
. with those who met him at the sta-1
' X- I
Bishop Kilgo was brought home in
the private car of Fairfax Harrison, j
president of the Southern railway, of:
which the bishop is a director.
Members of his family who met
him at the train afterwards expressed .
surprise to find his condition appar-!
ently so favorable. In the ambulance
on the way to his residence, the ibish-j
op, noting the white uniformed ambu-:
lance drivers, jocularly remarked:
"Well, the Ku Kluxers have got me." j
Bishop Kilgo became ill on his way
home from Hot Springs, Ark., where
he had been attending the general
conference of the Southern Methodist
church, and was taken off the train
Dr. Turner will hold a conference j
with the bishop's physicians here to-1
morrow, it was announced.

76th birthday Saturday, June 10,1
with a dinner at the home of her

Xance street. The dinner was served
on the long back porch, with forty- J
seven persons present. The table'
was artistically decorated with shasta
daisies and lilies. Mrs. R. C. Per-1
ry made the !birthday cake, which
looked very pretty with its 76 can- j
dies. Mrs. Lane was preeennted with
many nice presents. Many relatives
were present, and the guests included
her pastor, Dr. C. A. Freed (-with j
Mrs. Freed) and her physician, Dr.
R. L. Mayes. They returned to tneir .

defense, betrayed far more emotion
in conducting: the hearig than Bigham :
ever manifested. Mr. King impress-'
ed his audience deeply that he does
believe Bigham is an innocent man.
But the facte presennted by the solicitor,
L. M. Gasque, weighed against
him. Considering the letters and Rig-,
natures, which were alleged to have
been written by Smiley, for whose
murder Edmund is sentenced to die,
to Edmund while the latier was in
Georgia, the court stated frankly he
doubted their authenticity. He practically
as good as said they were
frauds and forgeries.
Bigham began to show the strain
of the trial for his life when the so"
* * ' A._ 1. Xl. . /J
iicitor m me anernoon iook uie noor
to argue against giving him a new
trial on the alleged after discovered
evidence. First, he turned almost
livid white. Later, under the stress
of taking the sentence of death, he
turned ashen in color. As the judge
pronounnced the date o? execution,
his jaw dropped. As the case went
on, evidently with diminishing hope
for the defense, Bigham seemed to
take on a desperate, haunted look.
It was the first betrayal of any
feeling in the matter that haa escaped
him, in word or appearance, since the
trial more than a year ago. *

the lack of leadership. To this end
the officers of the women's home demonstration
clubs of the county organized
themselves into county home

of these councils was organized in
Calhoun county and the second in
Greenwood county. There are now
36 of these organizations with a
membership of more than 6,000 farm
women. In 1920 there were only 17
of these councils. They served several
purposes, among which rjmy. be
mentioned the following:
: To assist county home demonstration
agents in planning work and in
meeting needs of the county; to promote
the economic and social welfare
of.the county; to encourage special
ized industries for purposes of developing
specific resources in the
county; to develop leadership in each
community; to foster friendly relations
and cooperation between rural
