A Strange Negro, With an Accomplice, En
tered the Gray Home in Keller Street, at
an Early Hour Monday Morning, With
Intent to Burglarize the Premises-—Dis
covered, He Seriously Attacked Capt. Gray
With a Dirk—Was Subsequently Appre
hended and Jailed, With Accomplice.
(,’artain C. C. Gray was stabbed
with a dirk between the ribs and be
low the heart at about half-past two
o’clock Monday morning at his resi
dence in PGdler street.
The deep was perpetrated by an
unknown colored man who had en
tered the residence with the in*
tent lon of burglary, and when dis
covered, he made a bold attempt at
Captain Gray occupied one of the
front rooms of his residence, facing
the east. A light sleeper.he heard a
noise within one of the rooms at the
above hour. There was no light in
the room, but through the communi
cation door transom, an all-night elec
tric light gave a faint light. It was
by this means that Captain Gray was
able to see a crouching form stealth
ily making way from the door fo a
dresser opposite the bed. Without a
moment’s hesitation he sprang from
his resting place, arid the crouching
form rising erect by this time both
men met and clinched. C apt. Gray
at once saw his adversary was a col
ored man, of heavy and powerful
build, but this did not deter him
in his attempt to hold the man. It
was an almost superhuman effort.
By this time the negro had gotten
his dirk and was making for Capt.
Gray with fatal Intent when the lat
ter struck the would-be assassin's
hand and the stab fell its mark sev
eral inches.
The negro then made his escape
through a back door, with Capt. Gray
in pursuit, but to no avail. By this
lime Captain Gray returned to his
room and discovered by the copious
Mow of blood that had stained his
night shirt that he had been cut. An
investigation showed the wound to be
serious aand the loss of blood weak
ened him considerably that he was
forced to take the bed. Mrs. Gray
telephoned the night operator. Miss
Katie Rudolph, at the Cumberland
central station and apprised her the
best she could under the strain and
nervous tension occasioned by the ex
citement of w'hat had occurred. Miss
Rudolph proved herself the heroine
of the hour. Without further in
structions she telephoned Dr. Manar,
hastened him to the' bedside of. the
victim and aroused the town gener
ally. She telephoned the marshal.
One of the most beautiful weddings
of the year was that of Miss lone Ur
quhart, daughter of the pastor of
the Bay St. Louis Methodist Church,
to Mr. Frank Glover Moffet, of Edna.
Texas. The ceremony was performed
Thursday afternoon, at six o’clock, at
whe Bay St. Louis Main Street Meth
odist Church, with the soft glow of
sunset illuminating the church and
falling like a benediction on the two
who w’ere pledging alLtheir future
years to one another’s keeping. Rev.
W. J. Megginson, of Biloxi, per
formed the ceremony after the sweet
and simple ritual of the Methodist
church,while Mrs. W. T. McDonald at
the organ ushered the bridal party
into the church to the strains of
Ihengrin. During the ceremony the
“Flower Song” furnished a back
ground for the vows and promises;
and at the close the husband and
wife left the church amid the strains
of Mendelssohn's wedding march. M
Homer Urquhart, of Sheffield, Ala.,
and Mr. Paul Daniels officiated as
ushers.- Miss Nella Urquhart, a sis
ter of the bride, was bridesmaid, wit:
Mr. Timmons Urquhart as grooms
man; and Miss Zou Urquhart, anoth
er sister, was maid of honor, with Dr
Ferrell Moffett, of San Antonio, as
best man. Mr. and Mrs. Moffett
went from the church to the railroad
station , where they took the train
for New Orleans, and thence to Ed
na, Texas, their future home.
Mr. Moffett is a prominent and
euccfes4ul young business man of
Edna, whose high character and hon
orable career have given him a high
place in the esteem of all who know
urn. Those citizens of Bay St. Louis
who have had thegood fortune to
meet and know' Mrs. Moffett witnes
sed her departure with deep regret,
as well as with a multitude of good
wishes. She has drawn around her
many close friends during hei bru f
stay here. No doubt she will find a
generous welcome awaiting hei
among her husband’s friends in her
new home.

sheriff, mayor and other citizens and
in less than thirty minutes the Gray
homo was filled with friends and all
the assistance necessary.
It was due Miss Rudolph s presence
of mind in imediately apprising the
officials of what had occurred and
due to the immediate response of
Marshal Murtagh that the work of
apprehending the burglar and as
sassin the same morning in New Or
eans was affected.
The man charged with the deed
is known as William Haggen. He
was held in New Orleans, and when
Sheriff Albert J. Carver went down
to New Orleans to get. the prisoner
he refused to come to Bay St. Louis
without the necessary requisition pa
>ers. However, this objection was
emoved and on Wednesday night at
i 1 o’clock Hagen reached here and
was safely landed in the county jail.
; Hagen was brought from New Or
-1 carrs byM ayor G. G. Gardebled,Mar
shal K. J. Murtagh and Detective
N<au of the McMahon agency. He
was closely questioned the following
morning and though at first claimed
ignorance of the affair finally con
fessed and w*as later identified by
Gapiain Gray. He confessed that ho
had done the stabbing, for he had
entered the house while his accom
plice remained on the outside and
kepi guard. The name of his ac
complice was given, and now he. too,
has been apprehended and jailed.
From the McMahon agency blood
hounds were telegraphed for Monday
morning. The animals traced the
scent to the back fence of the Gray
residence then through the Engman
premises to the shell road, where (he
lime of the shells obliberated all fur
ther scent.
Captain Grays condition has im
proved and today he is up and out.
In due time he will be altogether
well and again resume business.
Captain Gray says there is much
gratification in the knowledge that
his assailant and accomplice were
total strangers ot him; that they
were strangers to the town and in
no way belonging to Bay St. Louis.
At a preliminary hearing held yes
terday before Judge Breath. Hagen
plead guilty, and in default of SIOOO
bail was remanded to the county jail,
to await the session of Circuit Court.

“Surbanite,” a Bottle of Cham
pagne Being Used in the Ceremony
and as One of the Prime Re
quisites—Car Run Under Auspices
of Club of Seventy Members—The
Names of Officers of the Club
There are also Two Trustees.
Last Saturday* afternoon, leaving
New Orleans at 3:25 o’clock there
arrived here on the first Coast train
the handsome new “club on wheels”
car, replacing the “Beauvoir” car.
which had been in use about twenty
years. The car is of a particularly
attractive pattern, proportions and
appearances and when the train roll
ed into the Bay St. Louis station the
throng of people awaiting its ar
rival were not long in noticing it.
The bottle of Champagne, a prime
requisite for all properly conducted
christenings, be they ships or other
wise, wac broken at New Orleans on
last Saturday afternoon over the car
of the surburan Club-on Wheels. The
name given was “Surbanite.”
The ceremonies, which were brief
were held at the Louisville & Nash
ville station at 3:15 o'clock, just be
fore the train, of which the club-on
wheels was a part, pulled out for
the east. The “Surbanite” was to
be taken as far as Ocean Springs.
There are seventy members of the
club. The officers are as follows;
W. VV. Dufour, president; F. C.
Stouse. vice president: W. J. O'Con
nell, secretary; V. Michel and G. F.
Mason, trustees.
Formerly the seventy members,
who form the club rode in chair
cars. Following the etaraple of the
club-on-wheels that recently secured
anew car, they also organized them
selves into a club, and from the Pull
man Company they secured their
new movable club house. The “Sur
banite” is to make trip; daily druing
ing the week between New Orleans
and Ocean Springs.

The really unexpected has happened*
Sheriff Frank Cazalas, Sr., of Mobile
County, Ala., has been impeached and
is to be removed from office for alleged
neglect of duty, the Supreme Court of
Alabama so deciding. But lam glad
that there was one of the savants of that
august body, Judge Mayfield, who, in
the opinion rendered by the majority,
dissented, and had the- courage of his
convictions to say so. lam with Judge
Mayfield. “Honest confessions are good
for the soul.” I feel that injustice has
been done Sheriff Cazalas. I have been
in Mobile County for over three years.
And when there wet e former lynchings
here, even the whole atmosphere
throughout the county was„sureharged,
as it were, with an apparent enveloping
current of electricity for a lynching, in
utter protest, flashing sparks like from
the anvil of Patrick Henry, at the idea
of a moment’s delay for any cause what
ever. In the present case, so far as I
saw, and I have cultivated the habit of
being a close observer all of ray life, and
have trained my ears to he*r even a pin
fall in a room full of lint-cotton, so to
sneak, ho first intimation,J.had. of the
lynching in question of the desperado
negro Richard Robertson on the morn
ing of January 23rd lust was when about
daylight I was awakened by the news
boys crying out, “Extra Item, all about
the lynching!”
Under date of January 26th, 1930,\nd
written fora local Mobile piper, I pen
pictured this two-sided affair, then un
der caption ot
“None ever felr the halter draw,
"With good opinion of the law,”
The aftermath of flowery oratory and
“crocodile tears” flooded th? local and
neighboring press, eu*., in some quar
ters anent the lynching of (he negro
desperado, Richard Robertson, which
memorable occasion was justly and very
appropriately celebrated -1 without
preacher or priest, judge or jury—last
Friday night. I wish to say', emphat
ically so, that the lynching,"as long as
it has been done, meets ray most hearty
approbation, and if we should take a vote
on the matter, debarring neither blacks
nor whites, I venture to affirm the plat
form I am now impaled upon, which is
for law and order always, if possible,
certainly common justice ever, though
some near-sighted friends without their
spectacles, well-mean ng possibly, may
presume to wink and blink at it;" I say,
if put to a vole, the vast majority of cu*
people, irrespective of race, color or
creod, will send up to very heaven a
holy amen to the deserved summary
justice as meted out to the negro, Rich
ard Robertson, who wantonly and with
out the least provocation murdered one
of our very best while officers, Deputy
Sheriff Philip Fateh, the horrible details
of which are already to vividly pictured
in thp minds of an outraged "public on
this point. Seemingly, the only pity,
in fact, is that, at first, the lynch-bent
carcass of Richard Robertson wasn’t
then taken towards the tall trees, remov
ing such stench from our midst, and
there his polluted and depraved spirit
sent on home forthwith to the land of
“bad niggers”, or others who, for cause*,
come under that striking caption, a?
candidates for the hemp route, because
their atrocious acts, unbearable and un
pardonable, utterly remove them from
the pale of civilization, debar them from
court or jury produced by funds, the
earnings of civilized people, I person
ally regret that the county prison, which
is a beautiful building and deserved bet
ter fare at the hands of its care-takers,
was ever allowed to become stained
by the presence of the leprous anatomy
of Richard Robertson, whose obituary,
in common with the other attempts, pro
and con, at free advertising, I am forced
through a sense of duty to commit. But
I am very frank to admit, for the good
of the country, such useless characters,
“who are wild and woolly, and full of
fleas,” when they become rambunc
tiously obstreperous, make butter fer
tilizer than any other condiment.
Richard Robert,on, doubtless, wa
posing with “dragons’ teeth” as an in
spired apostle, and with the mantle of,
the negro _ Rooort Charles, who at New
Orleans a few years ago, defying arrest,
killed nearly ton policemen, and, after a
week’s hot pursuit from bouse to house,
had to be forced out by burning the
buildings, and at which time this dare
devil, as he was, was shot like a verita
ble mad dog, as he deserved. At that
I time, because the affair had attracted
j the attention of the whole country, inas
j much as the whole State of Louisiana
i as well as New Orleans, had been as
| saulted, and seemed to have become in
definitely protracted, ana, too, because
I was quite familiar with the chase of
such desperate characters while up in
the \azoo swamp. I wired Mayor Cap
deville, offering to lead, as the selected
head, a ready one hundred of the Tan
gipahoa craciC'-hots t from my hom r>
then, where I was the president of the
Citizens’ Improvement League, at Ham
mond, La.
1 will say, further, that, as yet, I have
never aided a crowd with my presence
at a lynching in my life. I trust to God
to be spared that kind of an act; but if
it ever becomes my duty, 1 shall not
flinch, for, with Dr. Andrew D. White
former ambassador to Germany, and first
president of Cornell University, in sub
stance, I realize that there are unfortu
nate times when even mankind have to

roar of nisses that even-startle every imp
in Heil, who is thereby notified to make
room tor the approaching “royal guest”
wit a the in no wise coveted pedigree of

1 phvious reasons. But, when neces
as 13 ’he sequel to every other

paiei thereby And, I predict, long'
will the thnllant notes of bird-songs,
betokening serenity, be heard in the

This is a hard wheat flour, or, in other words, a

of White Star. Give it a trial for bread. You will
