On the 9th of August, 1S87, the
entire household of Capt. Richard
S. Woolfolk, except Thomas G-,
the elder son, were murdered with
an axe, at his farm residence in
Early next morning suspicion
was directed to Tom, and he was
arrested and hurried to the jail in
Macon to avoid mob violence.
In October following he was
tried iii Bibb Superior Court and
convicted of murder. On a mo
tion for a new trial the case was
carried to the Supreme Court, and
the new trial was granted, on tech
In March, 1888, he was again
placed on trial in Bibb Superior
Court, but after the jury was made
up one of the jurors Was heard to
express his belief that Tom was
guilty, and a mistrial was declared,
Then an effort was.made to-secure
another jury, but the jury box of
the county was exhausted without
securing a jury. Then a change
of venue was ordered, and Judge
Gnstin ordered the next trial to
take place in Houston Superior
Court. The case was called at Per
ry on the first Monday in June,
1889. The trial continued three
weeks, and Thomas G. Woolfolk
was again convicted of murder.
He was sentenced to be hung on
the 16th of August, but this sen
tence was not executed, the - case
having been carried to tho Su

On the night of the 13th day of
October Woolfolk was brought to

ing in session. The following day
Judge G. F. Gober, presiding in
place of Judge A. L. Miller, sen-
liorseB won three tenced him to be hung on October
Since his arrival here he has
been closely guarded day and
night. The ministers of our
churches visited him almost daily,
and to them and others he protest
ed his innocence, and declared him
self ready to die, and satisfied that
his sins had been forgiven.
A few nights after his imprison
ment here he offered the guard
8500 to liberate him, and a few
nights afterward offered a bribe
for a bottle of morphine. These
bribes "being indignantly refused,
he entreated Mr. Jobson to bring
him a small quantity of morphine
each day, saying that he needed it
to enable him to hold up under the
tryingordeal. He didn’t get even the
smallest mite of the drug asked for.
The day guard - was also ap
proached, and asked for the privi
lege of walking out in the jail yard.
This liberty was denied him, and
the day of execution approached. „
These guards were selected for
their sterling integrity, and nei
ther would have thought a,moment
of betraying this trust, though
thousands of dollars had been offer
Last Thursday his sister, Mrs.
Cowan, came to see him, and Wooi-
folk was carried to the court house
under guard, w T here the last meet
ing between them took piace. Mrs.
Cowan entreated Sheriff Cooper
not to be the executioner, as he had
been kind to Tom aud his rela
tives, and she didn’t want her kind
feelings toward him' to be marred
by that act.
She made arrangements for the
body to be sent to_»Hawkiusville
Mrs. Crane and Mrs. Edwards,
aunt and sister, held two inter
views with Tom in the court house,
Sunday and Monday. On Monday
Mrs. Crane contemplated going to
Atlanta to implore Gov. Gordon to
grant a respite, but after conferr
ing with Capt. Rutherford,'decided
not to do so. ' ;.
Monday afternoon several par
ties, Clerk Wellons among.them,
were called into the sheriff’s office
by request of Woolfolk, and it is
presumed a paper transferring his
property was executed.
Monday Sheriff Cooper tele
graphed Gov. Gordon concerning
the guard, asking that the South
ern Cadets of Macon be .sent down,
to act in concert with the Perry
Rifles. This Gov. Gordon de
clined to do, saying the authority
of the sheriff was adequate without
calling aid from other communi
Rev. J. O. Brewton spent nearly
the entire morning ^ Tuesday with
the condemned man*during which
time a large number of letters
were written, to relatives and
friends. Woolfolk again protest
ed his innocence, declaring em
phatically that he had
aion to make.
Dr. E. W. Warren, of Macon,
visited Woolfolk in his celi Tues
day afternoon, and again daring

pany with bur ministers.

Tuesday night, Woolfolk was talk
ing to the guard, saying:
“Some people have tried to get
me to confess, but I have nothing
to confess. I didn’t commit the
crime, and I won't tell a lie to
please the people.”
He talked unconcernedly, and
laughed heartily, at something that
sounded like a joke at the expense
of one of Sheriff Cooper’s depu
After protesting his innocence
he said, in answer to questions:
“I believe Jack DuBose either
helped to commit the murder, or
saw-those who did it. They said
Jack was crazy, and sent him to
the asylum. Well, no one but a
crazy man, or a demon, could have
committed 'that crime. Nobody
who believes in a God and a future
life could have done it. I don’t
know who did it, and to save my
life, I wouldn’t accuse any man
of it, unless I had proof. I believe
foui or five persons helped do it,
When I jumped up, I thought it
was a general thing, aud^that all
the neighbors were being done the
same way. I sent a runner to a
neighbor’s house, but expected.him
to bring back news that murder
had been,committed there too.”
A confession' has constantly been
expected by many of the people
during the last several days, while
others believed that no confession
would be made. An attempt to
commit suicide, or to escape, has
been expected, but the vigilance of
Sheriff Cooper and his guards has
absolutely prohibited anything of
that sort. Nearly every one who
has talked with him expresses the
belief that he is deficient in feel
ing, and that he has never fully
appreciated the situation with re
gard to the great .hereafter.

Cowan, yesterday morning, con
