lames Sharp, Humble and Pen
itent, Behind the San.
Kansas City, Dec. 12.—"The Lord
was either not with us or was on a
vacation. Now I know my faith was
wrong, that I was mistaken."
That is the statement made by
James Sharp, better known as "Adam
God," who was captured In Kansas.
It was Sharp who last Tuesday led
his followers into a battle with the
police that has already resulted in five
deaths. A. J. Selsor, aged seventy
two, an Innocent bystander, wounded
by a stray bullet, is the last of the
victims to die.
it is a penitent and humble prophet
that sits in his cell in the police sta
tion here with the responsibility of
five deaths upon him, but insists that
he acted in good faith.
"Honestly, captain," he said to Offi
cer Whitsett, "I believed that we
were doing right and that it was
Clod's will. When the bullets com
menced to hit me then I had a revela
tion. I am glad to be back and want
to stand for anything that God wills.
Oh, it is terrible, terrible.
I had a nice farm in Oklahoma and
was doing well when I believed I was
palled." he continued. "Now I have
qo money, my children have left me
and I have murdered innocent men."
Sharp professed to have received a
revelation from God to preach and he
had said that he believed tho Lord
would protect him and his flock from
harm at the hands of their enemies.
In which manner he spoke of the po
lice. The hand had gone armed ever
since they fought with the Canadian
police a year or so ago.
