Paid Death Penalty Friday for 3)lsl
Brutal Murder
Columbia, June 16.-S. J. Kirby
Jesse Gappins and C. O. Fox were
clectrocuted at the penitentiary thi:
morning shortly, after a o'clcek foi
the murder of William Brazell, Co.
lumbia taxi-driver, near Leesville ci
the night of August 7, last.
The trio went to their deaths sing
ing and praying. Kirby went first
end he feigned insanity an tried tc
get his Ifi(nds from the straps. Thc
off iceis tcld him he better take it
easy, but a second time he slipped his
hands from the straps. Then1 four
guards took hold of him forcefully,
the straps Were mad) tighter thau
usual and the current was sent thru
n: body, the man being deprived,
bccaub; of ecntrary behavior, o-f the
'"., privilege c making a last state
ment. Ga ppians went second and Fox
last, the entire procedure consunl:ng
forty ninutes. Fox and Gappins
made last statcnlnts in which they
warnc(1 young men1 against bad coim
pny and evil conduct.
Thepeitentiary lfficials took the
curicus by surpi:se and staged the'
(xecutions at an Carly hour irst:ead of
sV necn, as is usual. This is the first
time a white man has been executed
in this state since 1913, and it :s the
first time three men were ever ele(
trccuted in the State the same day.
The three men wcre e.cnvicted last
September 14, 1921, of the murder of
William Brazell, a young taxi driver
of Columbia. Th(y were first semen
cod to dic October 21, but appeals,
which wr.)e never ptIfeeted causvd
postponement of the (late and mad.
resentencing necessary.

the murder tr io "went to their deaths

faces of many'.' who vere at the death
house to sce the e::eeuticn ct the
thrce men wloosc cm ime shocked a
state and who sent to an untimely
grave a young Columinian, whose car
they tock and whom they killed, to
coVelr their crime.
Kirby was obstinate. Because he
was not allowed to make his final
siatement to the audience as he stood
at the entrance of the death audi
terium, he re fused to submit peace
fully to the stlrapping into One big
chair, and cfficer s were forced to
handi him with forc and to (ICpi'e
him of the- privilege of making his
last statement.
Gappins prayed as he sat in the
chair. "Stand by mu dear Lord in my
last monments on this earth," he began
and then fervently he poured out his
scul for fcrgiveness, and the hand
of the electrician was staytd, as the
young man prayed. But the prayer
was finally ended when the 1900 volt
current was sent hurtling through his
Warn Yceung .Men.
Bcth Gapping and Fox warne:
young nen agains hal cmpanions
and dIisreard . fr la'.v. Fox was
humble. "Good mrnilg, gentleman,"
he said a he co.red th dcath chamn
bo*r. "I have vet v little to say, he
mttcrd. "1 held n(.Lhilig against
any one. I hope to meet the other
boys in heaven.'" Three ministr.:'
held serv1iV s wit1h th(: m1i.1n before
thcy !eft thcir cells. At 5:30 this
Imornhig the captain of the guard
read t he. death wailent to the mena.
At (1:12 the first man wvas ledI to the
(bair r'C'1m, and within fifty minutes
the triple e::eeution was cndgd.
The trio appeared to have sdept wvell

When thcy g(et about liften mile's
