HANOvrR C. U.. December 21— Jerry

inrxner living Hoar Doswell, Haiiovcr
couKty, on the morning of November 3th.
was hanged in the county jail this after
noon at 1:03 1-- o'clock. The man was the
coolest of the twenty people who had
gathered ."to sec the execution. ; Only once
did he show the least possible concern,
and thai was while the death warrant was
being read to him by Sheriff Alexander.
Then he; displayed a httle nervousness,
hlshands and body shaking as the read
ing of the document was concluded.
'■"While ;iic • 'death " warrant was bein^
rca<3. there wore a. dozen, men in . the
small, dark cell; among them being the
Hcv, S.. S. lieplnirn. the spiritual ad
viser of the condemned Irian. When it:
had been finished. Sheriff Alexander said
to the negro:
"Jerry; I will have to hang you. I
ani tea Jy. and 1 hope you arc."
The man nodded that he was ready.
■sind Mr. Hepburn raised bis hand and of
fered a fervent prayer for the condemned.
asking that his' soul be received by the
Master- Tho people who were in the rooir.
Htood with bowed heads, and when the
minister said; "Amen," the sheriff and
Deputies Hail and Hardaway started lor
the ; >"t<?i>s leading to the upper robins.
Jerry jviml.-n.vugh was as composed as
: hough he were being simply transferred
l roni ' one -: room '..-to aiiotlicr. Once up the
Kteps, a youjig.man fell to v.-ith an axe
and soon had loosened the steps. "aii«l they

Sheriff Alexainder Ican-d over to the,
man, taking, hold of his loft arm. air.l
whispered something to him. Kimbrough,
in a low tone, said: "Save me, dear Sa

As ihe words were uttered. Sheriff Alex
ander raised his right hand, and a tight
ening of tho cords was soon, the bolt
was shot with a rattle; arid the body of
Jerry Kimbrough dropped a distance of
f-i\ feet. Everything had worked per
fectly, .liiere had not been a slip of any
sort.

KIMBROUGH'S CONFESSION.
Jerry Kimbrough made a full and com
plctc confession of his crime to the Rev.
Mr. Hepburn, and it was read to tho
jury and reporter for the Dispatch, a
few minutes before the march up tho
steps was begun.. He made a clean
breast, and gave a pood deal of light on
many happenings that have for some
time been more or less shrouded in mys
tery. By his own words, the man in
tended tit kill Mrs. Taylor and then rob
the house. He had been engaged in a
number of crimes. Tue confession was
taken by Mr. Hepburn almost exactly .is
the man gave it. and after it had benn
read to him. in order to have the least
doubt removed as to what he Intended to
say, Kimbrough affixed his signature.
The confession was written in a. private
memorandum book of the minister, who
allowed the Dispatch man to make a
verbatim copy, as follows:
"I. Jeremiah 'Kimbrough, was born in
Louisa county, Va., March 3 si. 3579. and
being condemned to death, make this, ray
confession, to Rev. S. S. Hepburn: i havo
have "been a pretty honest fellow up until
I was 21 years old, when 1 got into bad
associations. Millard Fillmoro Gilliam and
me pulled Minor "Wood's chimney down,
and I took the habit of hunting on posted
land, and drinking, but always had a fear
of the Lord.
"Millard and mo agreed to strike and
rob Mr. McGhee, and Millard struck him
and 1 went off, my heart failing me. I
studied evil all the time when ho and 1
went together. We planned to take ad
vantage of people. We left home and
went to West ■■Virginia.' There got into
trouble by taking money from an. old
colored man and had to leave. Came to
Clifton Forge and then to Richmond and
come up to Hanover and worked on the
grade. two days. Could not get along with
a big fellow, whom I intended to shoot,
but he apologized. 1 left there and went
bacjr to Richmond.
"£n West Virginia got in the habit of
carrying revolvers, and when at home
before this carried them in secret and un
known to my father, and while in West
Virginia those two fellows— Thomas Des
per and Finnell Fransco — come to camp,
and another fellow and me put them up
to breaking in a shanty and. stealing two
revolvers.
"From there I strayed off to Hanover.
I went to Mrs. Taylor's, intending co
kill her and rob the house. But the Lord
would not let me do it. He said I had
gone far enough against him. He suffer
ed me to do enough for him to call me
by suffering me to insult Mrs. Taylor. 1
asked her to * * * 1 have seen my loss,
and reinstate my nature. I repent and
a-«k the Lord to forgive me before I go
hence and be no more.

The Chief of Police: will not allow any

Chri.stmas-Day.'.'The" limit is fixed at the
No. 5 cannon-cracker. which is about five

shops. There, seems likely to ho many
violations of this ordinance, for many

YOUN&GiHL SET FREE
CHRISTMAS PARDON. FOR JA>E
WRIGHT, OF FRANKLIN. .
ONE WHITE WOMAN IN PEN.
Crime of the Pardoned Girl Was the
■\VliippinjK of n. Child to Death—
>'iclioln« Albino, of Norfolk, In
cluded in the List.
In contrary with the custom that has
prevailed with Virginia's governors, a
number of pardons were. granted yester
day; by Governor M^ontague to convicts
in the penitentiary. Nine conditional
and eight absolute "pardons were issued,
and the beneficiaries of the Governor's
clemency will be liberated by Superin
tendent Helms as soon as the official no
tices reach him.
In many instances the pardons are
granted on account of the ill health of
the convicts. Some were pardoned
through the strong- recommendation of
the judge, jury, and commonwealth's
attorney of the court in which they were
convicted. . . '
One of the most notable cases among
those that were presented to the Gov
ernor for consideration was that of Jane
Wright, the young white girl, "who war
sentenced to the penitentiary for five
years from Franklin county for whipping
to death a child that had been left in
her care While the older members of the
family were away. She is one of the
two white women in the State prison,
and has already served a portion of her
sentence. She is a very pretty young
girl, about 1G years of age, and the
Governor's pardon will come -.to her as
the most acceptable Christmas gift that
she could get.
Nicholas Albino, of Norfolk, who was
sent up for one year for voluntary man
slaughter, is also included in the list
of pardons. Albino is a tine-looking
young fellow with strong, clear brown
eyes and a complexion that confinement
in the penitentiary has not been able
to affect. His case was one that seemed
to merit attention particularly, for the
circumstances surrounding the killing
were such as to bring it almost within
the pale of justifiable homicide. Most of
tho pardons were for short term convicts
or those who' have served the greater
portion of their time.
CONDITIONAL PARDONS.
The list of conditional pardons is as
follows:
Charles Pitman. Isle of Wight, two
years for unlawful wounding.
* Garfield Pollard, Prince Edward, five
years: house-breaking. .
" John Davis, Norfolk, one year; mali
cious shooting.
Charlie . Turner. Roanoke city, six

COVINGTOX. VA.. December 23.—(Spe
cial.)—An entire block of stores and
dwellings were threatened early Satur
day morning by a tire which partially
destroyed Mr. W. A. Rineharfs hand
some "stable, back of. his residence on
Court street. The volunteer fire com
pany responded to the alarm and did
efficient work, confining the flames to
the loft of the structure. All that saved
neighboring .buildings" were. the 'still. night
and tin roof of the stable. The efficiency^
of the fire protection in Covington has
been tested several times recently.
About $30 was secured from W. '. G.
Martin's marble shop by thieves who
plied their trade during the fire. J. F.
cole's bar-room was also entered, but
the robbers left before completing their
task. . ' - . ■ .
