Democrats Scurry to Polls to Save
Day Against Independents.
Greenville, Sept. 12.-A scene the
like of which has not been known
since radical days was enacted here
today when the Democratic party had
a. stiff fight to place in ofilce their
no:ninees selected in the Democratic
primary of July 23 last. About noon
an "independent ticket" was placed i
the field, con: in,ing the name of L. K
Kelly, in oI pes.cn to J. D. Gireath,
who was nominated for police commis
sioner by the Democrats. Though a
warning had been sounddJL by the daii
1papers of the city for severai dayv
-orc-::ons to the elctiokn, the elee:orz
of the city dici not turn out to the poils
When it was discovered that an "inde
pendent ticket" was really in the field
and that the Democratic nominee for
-poice commissioner were in danger of
defeat, an alarm was sounded througb
the city, and there was much scurry
ing to the polls.
The returns tonight show that five
insurgent candidates received 89 votes
while the nominees of the Democratic
.:arty received 433. ' The independent
ticket was placed in the field by an ele
ment of the city that has fought the
policy of the police commission. The
nominees of the Democratic party whc
were confirmed today are: J. D. Gil
reath, ex-sheriff of the county, a Bap
-tist deacon; Frank Hammond, presi
-dent of the biggest bank in Greenville,
a Presbyterian elder, and Alex Mc
7Bee, commercial agent of the Southern
Tailway, an Episcopal- vestryman.
'Their policy is one of a "closed
-town." Kelly, the insurgent candidate,
is proprietor of a livery stable busi
7ess in the city, and has been arrested
-for violation of the dispensary laws.
OPERATION KILLED GIRL.
eCoroner Makes Statement in Hender.
sonville Case-Miss Hawkins Died
of Criminal Operation.
Hendersonville, N. C., Sept. 13.-The
-second coroner's inquest over the re
mains of Miss Myrtle Hawkins, mys
-teriously murdered and later placed in
Lake Osceola, will be held on Friday.
A stenographer will be present at this
- second inquest and a most comprehen
sive inquiry conducted. Any one sus
p ected of knowledge of the girl's
movements on Thursday will be called
~before .the ;jury. The list includes
many prominent persons.
Mr. Hal Cooper, me fiance of the
murdered girl, arrived here this morn
ing from Johnson City, Tenn. He was
met at the depot by a married sister
of the dead girl, who strenuously ob
jected- to Mr. Cooper talking to a news
Vaper mian and was drive~n direct to
*the family residence. He will appear
at the coroner's second inquest. Mr.
'Cooper expressed a perfect willin.gn ess
to tell all he knows, but his frank an
sw6rs to the many questions asked
him sheds no light on the mystery.
said he came to Hendersonvile as soon
~-possible. after the killing of his
fi-nancee. He earnestly opposes the
th.eory of suicide and naturally ap
Spears highly wrought over the terrible
death of his sweetheart.
House, Scene of Crime.
The day's developments are these:
The operation was performed not in
the woods surrounding the la.ke, but
was performed in a residence at no
great distance from the lake where the
body was found, and the detectives be
lieve they know the house.- The opera
tion was performed in this nouse; the
bo.dy was removed to the woods, where
it'lay exposed to the sun for days and
*was Ithen placed in the lake not more
than eight hours before its discovery.
Sensational deVe1opments more
startling than any yet made public
may confidently be looxed for within
the next twenty-four hours. The clues
leading to the d-eveTopments in no
wise conflict with evidence already in
hand. The state of public feeling is
intense. No tragedy has ever excited
such bitter feeling as this which re
suited in the dreadful doing to death
of Miss Myrtle Hawkins, by some un
known murderers, almost on the eve
~of her wedding day
Hendersonville, N. C., Sept. 13.
Positive announcement was made to
Mght by Coroner W. R. Kirk that Myr
tle Hawkins, the 17-year-old girl
whose " ody was found in Lake Osceola
Sunday, died as the result of an un
lawful operation. The coroner's .iury,
which gave a verdict of death from
"unknown cause," knew this fact at
the time of the inquest, but made their
finding indefinite in order to allay sus
picion of the girl's slayer and make
easier the detection of tor crimiral,
