Fox, (Uippins and,Kirby to le iiJune 10.
No imtnoii S1howIn.
I exiington, May 23.-Pallid from ov
er sVenj montlis' conlflIenieit in the
death h0lio8e at the state penitentiary
bit outwardly is calm and as unper
tiirbed as before, C. 0. Fox, S. J. Kirby
and .Jesse (lappins, coivicted murder
ers of William lirazell, .19 Year. ojl Co
lumbila transfer driver, tIhis afterinooni
for the second time heard seitence of
dh:ttth passed uipon- them, tihe electro
cution date being fixed by, Judge De
Vore for Priday, .1tne10 i. 'Tle trio's
exceuion uider the siiteince will take
plae betweeln the hours of 5 o'clock
in the morning aid 7 o'clock at. ight.
Pox, Kirby and Gappins were con
v I ceed hII Lexingtonl SeCmA~ber. H,
I21, 111d were sentenced .by Judge
Sease to die in the electric chair on
October 21. Gappins and Kirby filed
iotice of appeal, bul of the tbwo on1ly
(lappilns' appeal was completed. Tilis
was dismissed a few weeks ago by
the supreme cour. on the motion of
Solicitor T. C. Callison of Lexington
that the appeal was without merit.
Fox's eX-ctition was stayed by ain ap
Illication for a writ of habeas corpus
'before Associate .ustice T. P. Cothran
made the day- prior to the dato set
for his exectitioni. The Writ wias de
I1ed by Justice Cothran and the stay
of execition beyond the (late set ;was
then obtained by an appeal to the su
preme court. This appeal, like Kirby's
was niever Completd.
The tlriee iUen, hidilcuiffed together,
were taken from the death hose at
about 11:15 ol'clock this morning and
Suder guard Were brought to Lexing
toi. At 12.05 o'clock they were led
Inlto the court room an1d there, the
handcuffs having been removed, were
placed in the dock. Solicitor Callison
then made his argument before Judge
DeVore for the (leclaratilol by the
court of the abandonmeitt of the ap
peals of Fox and Kirby on the grounds
that they had not been completed
within the time prescribed by law.
This was 'allowed and the three men
were the narraigned. Once again the
indictment was read to them and
once again they were asked If they
had anything to say as to why sen
tence of death should not ,be -passed
Fox's name was called flirst and his
only reply to the query was, "I don't
concede that I have had a fair trial.
I don't think*I've had justice." Kirby
thought, he said, that he ha'd.not even
been tried. "Tho records of the court,"
he said, "will show that the grand
Jury was not properly sworn and
therefore I do not think that I have
had a legal trial. This wias the reason
that my appeal' was not completed."
Gappins made a somewhat more elabo
rate statement, Charging that the
truth had nener been told about his
Participation ill the crime. "I'm not
guilty of murder," he said. "I haven't
got justice and if the truth had been
told all the way round I would not
have been convicted. When I stand
befor'e God I'll get justiene, but I
haven't had1( juctice here. Some peCople
have not told the truth." Tils state
ment is in agreement with Gappins'
attitudle throughout the twvo day trial
last September wvhen ho stoutly main
tained that he had been Ignorant of
any iplot to steal Brazeli's automobile
and that he had takeni no active p~art
in the boy's murder.
The three statements heard, Judge
Devore then pronouncedl sentence upon
them, the trio being sent'enced as One
man. As had been the case when they
were first sentenced the three men
showedl very few signs of emotion, Fox
chowing gunm or' some similar sub
stance throughout the en tir 1p lroced
ure. Gappins again wvas the nest ner'v
out of the thr'ee, constantly wliping
his face for .perspiratIon that was not
always there. Trho .three men wore
dressed espebially for the' occasion In
co.jtiy shirts and comparatively . new
suits. Kitsby wore glasses. Save for
the unhealthy pallor of faces andi arms
they showed fewv effects from their
long stay in the death house. Bo0th Fox
and Ghappins had taken on considerable
