Wardso Oandler aod Offieera Rawie'.t and tampeon went '.o the coart house of A'exaadria coooty tbia morning for tbe porp-^ae of condacting Henry Smitb, the laat of tbe foor negroea coovicted of participating io the murdero/ Walter F. echnllz, to thia city. At 10:40 they ap peared in the Corporation Oonrt room with the convicted man and placed him in tbe dock. Tbe court was eubatqaently called to order wb*n Jadge Barley, addressing Smitb, aBked bim i? he witbdrew hia ap peal for an arreet of jadgment and a new trial. Smitb replied that that matter waa In the hands of bia attorneye. Mr. F. P. Rusaell, nnn of hia connael, aroae and stated tbat Smith bad made a etatement to bim and bad been can tioned againat aayinganythiog to otbers; but the priaoner had aabafqueotly told etoriea to otbera. Mr. Raaaell, how ever, Baid he waa still prepared to do what he could for him. Tbe jjdge aaid bmlth in a letter aeot bim bad renoanced the motioo for aa arreet of jodgment and a new trial. Mr. Brumback, one of tbe ccuneel for Smith, eaid the motion made after the jury had returned their verdic* was in the intereat of the client, and connael had done all in tbeir power. If Smith, however, did not deaire a new trial, hia conoael would not inaist npon It. The judge said be haddecided to over role tbe motioo, and hetriered Smith to atand np, and he waa aaked if be had anything to aay to ehow wby eentence ahonld not be paBsed npon. bniih atood and aubatantia'ly s'.ated wbat waa prinfd in bis confemion pob lished in tbe Gaartta on Wedneaday. He reiterated tbat Ohief Gioda and Officer baropaon were responaible for bia commi8sioo of perjary, and if lime waa given bim be could bring forward facie to prove hia cbarge. He again pro claimed tbe inuocence of the three men now in the penitentiary aa well aa hia own. and eaid be did not kcow who feilled Scbjl z. He went on to aay tbat it waa bettcr for bim to die tban to al low tbree ionccent men to be electro? cuted. Smi:b wa? earneat in hia appeal to the court to aee that be waa not lynched He v-aa ready to be eleclro cutcd, but did not want hia body torn to piycee. He appealed to God to wit neaa that he waa innocent of marder, al though he had commiited peijary. He repeated hia chargea against Cbief Gaoda and Gfficr Simpaon and torn ing to the lailer, who atood near, taid be c >nld look bim in tbe face and reiterate all he had previonely aaid, Smlib said he wanted ? chance to prove nia innccence. He did not aak freedom. aa be bad given np all, not dreading electrocuiioo but having a horror of lyccbiog. Judge Barley inttrrop'ed Smith by telliDg htui he would be protected from violencr, and altbuugh Smith anemcd anxloua to keep on talklnr, the jadge prnnouoced eentence as followa: Thecimeof which you have b?'en con vicU-J was one of the roost ci i I blooded and rJaaUri'y mnrdera evet jerpetra'd in tbe crimin.il annal* cf thia ronntrv.
