"HORRIBLE. DRE AM"--MRS, y AYESr
Floyd's Slayer Talks About Killing.
Declares She Had Dreamed of
Tragedy Week Before.
News and Courier, 1st.
Unless there is a hitch of some kind,
the trial of Atrs. Rosa D. Hayes.
charged with the murder of Robert M.
Floyd, at Tabor, N. C., on the evening
of February 4, and Neal M. and Lloyd
Hayes, charged as accessories, will
begin at Whiteville, N. C., tomorrow,
the attorneys in the case having
agreed upon that day. The readers of
the News and Courier are familiar
with the facts connected with the kill
ine of 'the young medical student, a
native of Horry county, attending
school in Charleston, the story as told
by Mrs. Hayes, the accused woman,
and the effort on the part of the pro
secuton to show that Floyd was the
victim of a plot, formed by the three
Hayeses. It is also recalled that at
the preliminary hearing something
over two weeks ago, at Whiteville, the
question of a motive for the killing
was not touched upon. This is the
all-absorbing topic to those interested
in the case and to the public, who
have discussed it. What will be shown
at the trial of the case in the superior
court tomorrow remains to be seen.
Of considerable interest to the read
ers of the News and Courier will be
the lollowing Interview with Mrs.
Hayes, obtained by the reporter of
the Whiteville News-Reporter on yes
Xrs. Hayes Talks.
"Mrs. Hayes; having refused to talk
to the News-Reporter editor, our lady
reporter called at the jail Monday
morning and through the kindness of
Mrs. Spivey was at once shown in
,L.e presence of Mrs. Hayes. She greet
ed us cordialiy and asked us to be
"Mrs. Hayes at lonce entered into
eonversation. She seemed to be very
sad and 'her first question was, if the
Floyds had come? Mrs. Hayes readily
answered any question asked her and
always looked you straight in the face
"She said the unfortunate affair
seemed like a horrible dream to her;
. that a week before .the tragedy occur
red she had a similar dream, in which
she dreamed she had killed Robert
Floyd, and the fact that she had killed
him seemed a dream, she said. Mrs.
Hayes said she was so wrought up at
the -time she was shooting that she did
not realize at the time as often as
she did shoot and she earnestly hoped
-that the spirit of young Floyd was in
"Mrs. Hayes thanked the News-Re
i,rter for the paper's fair account of
hs tragedy. She appeared very lady
like in her manner. She was neatly
attired aid is evidently feeling the
effects of her confinement. Mrs. Hayes
was locked up in the women's cell of
.our new jail, the only furniture in
the room being a bed. There was some
-'fancy work on the bed, that she had
"lu answer to an inquiry Mrs. Hay
es s:dd that after shooting Mr. Floyd
he called her name, "Rose," twice, and
v/hen he advanced upon her after the
first shot she became frightened and
'The young woman does not seem
to be conscious of the fact that the
Scharge of mur'ier is hanging over her
"The writer told Mrs. Hayes 'how
deeply we heard 'her mother was af
facted at Mr. Flovd's d]eth. S,e said
A her mother and father both thought
a great deal of Robert Floyd; that he
,had spent several nights at their
"home, and they knew him 'well. She
said the IPabpr people had not begun
to visit her td amount to anything and
she did not think they liked her.
"She said that Charleston minister
who wrote that letter to the News-Re
p orter did not know Robert Floyd's
heart or what was in it; that only
*God knows that.
"Mrs. Hayes says she is only 17
years old, and not 22, as some of the
newspapers had it. She is a blonde,
* with medium light hair, and very pret
ty slate-blue eyes. Mrs. Hayes vehe
mently denied the published state
ment that she has thin lips, her lips
being snedium. Her language was
good and her manners very ladylike.
When the writer left she got up and
escorted him to the door of the pris
on. 'Mrs. Hayes said she heard the
people of Tabor were very bitterly ar
rayed against her, but she 'hoped she
liad a few friends in Whiteville.
. Religious Services at Jail.
"Last Sunday afternoon the Revs.
J. J. Adams and Charles C. Smith,
Baptist ministers of Whitevilli', con
ducted religious servrees in the jai!,
preaching to and praying with the
prisoners. Both ministers urged up
on th'ir hearers to tell the truth and~
repent of their sins. Some fifty of
, - our citizens5, including a number of
Christian women, were present.

Hayes stood in her cell doQr, which
was open, and had her boy baby in

mother, as shown by the looks of en

Mrs Hayes looked very sad and hex

present talked to her after the ser

She did not discuss the tragedy, but
talked about her baby.

to get after young Floyd was down in
the door. Tfie other is a nine-shooter
automatic pistol, that fires a -steel

"Coroner Mills said both pistols
were found empty after the tragedy,
and the supposition is that Mrs. Hayes
fired fourteen shots at and into Rob-i

stated to the editor of this paper that;

son's overcoat that he had on at the
time of the tragedy. The Messrs.
