NEGRO MURDERER
WAS UNCONCERNED
Reports That He Was to Be
Lynched Apparently Did
Not Disturbed Him.
(SiK-clnl to Tlio TlHi?s-DlepMcr?.)
GRENSBORO, N. C, March 21.?Th?
fifteen-year-old negro murdoror, Broad
nax, who killed Sidney Blair, tioar Rftlds
ville, yesterday, and shot Miss Walker
three times, for the purpose of robbery,
when brought to Greensboro last night
for safe-keeping, seemed really more
concerned about the appearance of his
clothes, necktie, etc., than anything., else.
While the sheriff of Gullford county was
telegraphing the Governor of the' roport
that an armed body of men were Raid to
be oomlng from Roldsvtlle to lynch tha
brute, and the wlrp.a were being Itept hot
to protect hlrn from swift Justice, he,
the least concerned ot all, calmly sleep?
ing in his cell In tho Jail, apparently not
concerned at all.
The report of lynching became? so
alarming. Governor Aycock ordered the
prisoner taken to Rateigli Jail, and he
was awakened at 1 o'clock and carried
on the regular night train thoro, In tho
meantime the Gate City Guard had been
called out for .?heir first ofllclal service,
being In readiness at' their armory for
anything that might happen.
The negro never at any time scorned
alarmed or excited. He showned im?
patience only when tho sheriff was hur?
rying him to dress quick to catch the
train. He talked freely about tho crime
to any ono who asked him nbout It, Bay?
ing he got only $5 for committing IL
He has .not a brutish face.
LYNCHING PREVENTED
t Was Well That the Slayer of Blair
Was Promptly Moved.
(Bpncl'il to The Tliaeu-Dlupntcli.)
?REIDSVILLE, N. C? Maroh 2L-Bher
Iff Frank Pennlx and J, E. Lambeth re?
turned froth Greensboro, where they car?
ried Broadnax, who killed Sidney Blair.
Thoy did not accompany him to Raleigh,
The crime Is the general topic of oon
versaUon throughout tho county. Many
are of opinion that if thu negro had not
been removed from tin* county Jail ho
would have been lynched. Others, think
thero was n/ore talk than anything elwc.
The remailla of Blair were hurled to-dny.
The funeral was attended by a lingo'
concourra of friends and relativos. Blair
had the r?putation of being ? ml ?er
throughout the county, and the Impres?
sion is that ho kept a large sum of
money hidden on the promises, Rroad
?;ax was acquainted with ttie promises
and th? old man's habits, nnd knew
where some money had been hidden,
The negro chose Dio timo for the attack
well. No trains wero passing at that
hour. The nearest neighbors lived some
distance away, and could ho counted
upon 10 be doing tin* evenlng'H work nt
home. There was darkness onough to
bid?? movements and make escapo pro?
bable.

and will be ready for occupancy m a-few
weeks. Wilson people are delighted at
the ?Urns of success being shown by this
concern? ?? smoking tobacco department
will bo ?4ded to their plant.
?fto? town Of Wilson Is now hiv'nsr lb?
most spirited campaign in Its history over
tho subject of tlie dlsponHary. The last
Legislature passed a bill giving tho town
the right to vote on this question. The
first Monday in April has been set by the
authorities for tho date of tho vote. Each
side is straining every effort to have
success crown their efforts, The Indica?
tions now aro that tho dispensary will
win by a very small majority.
Farmers in this eoctlon are taking ad?
vantage of the good weather to get their
hind In Hhape for tobacco and cotton.
Tho present Indications aro that -the acre
ago of tobacco will be decreased hi this
county during this season. The present
low price and the scarcity of labor are
tho causes for this decrease.
AT GREENSBORO
Prices Have Been Unsatisfactory and
Stock In Damaged Condition.
GREENSBORO, N, C, March 21.?Tak?
ing advantage of tho fine tobacco sea?
son, farmers from every direction havo
been flocking to this market for the
past week with tobacco.
Prices have been unsatisfactory In the
main, but thero has beun a great deal
of wet and damaged tobacco unloaded
which was high at any price.
On all grades of good tobacco prices
havo been well sustained, lugs und cut
tors keeping woll up to last week's sat?
isfactory prices, while mahogany wrap?
pers and good malhogany fillers are sell?
ing high, tho demand seemingly not half
supplied.

erally believed that tho crop wns nearly

bacco''was brought hure on wagons, not
only from counties adjoining Halifax, In
Virginia, but a large quantity camo from
tho border countlos of North Carolina,
The shipments by rail from long dis?
tances have boon steadily Increasing.
Tlio offerings wero of every typo, from
a very common filler to the finest wrap?
pers, Tho latter woro eagerly taken at
ligures a shado higher than thoy havo
been selling for. Thoro was not munti
that brought over ?45, but a groat deal
ranged from $30 to $12. ,
Tho average for tho week was about
$10. Tho innd Is now In good condition
to plow, and largo breaks urn not looked

that '15,000,000 pound? will bn sold.

We laid the statesman down to rest,
So great, so puro his life Cnad been
We stifled sorrow In our breast
As though It were a mortal ?In.
A man na good as he was groat.
The maker of his country's laws,
Beloved of friends he served his State,
And battled for tbe people's cause.
But now he Bleeps on his loved shore
While all around tho robins slngr;
And sad the ocean's billows roar
Borne on the breath of early spring.
The hand that eoothod Uhe fevered brow
Thn voice that swayed the Senate's will
That lias across hla bosom now?
And thla la now forever still,
,Tls "meet that I should laud his worth
Unworthlor son of self-same womb
Who called him "brother" at his birth
And with him mused at Vlrglls tomb.
Who crossed with him the ocean's wldo
And thon on old Pompelan wall
Saw on Vesuvius rugged side
The twilight shadows gontly fall.
Alone In the strange land we etood?
Two hearts so closely knit In one
That nvery throb of bin warm blood
Seemed then to mingle with my own,
And Aooomao or latamboul,
Al Waehaproague or Ispahan
There never breathed a nobler soul
TDttslr never walked a manlier man.
Bweet be bla dreams his slumbers long,
Down by hla own beloved Boa
That erstwhile sang his cradle song
Ant! etili shall chant his lullaby. ??
