It is unnecessary for ns to give here a history of the Woolfolk mur der, and the trials that followed. Our readers are familiar with the facts. 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 Bibb county. 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 nical grounds. 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 preme Court. In July last the judgment of the coort below was confirmed On the night of the 13th day of October Woolfolk was brought to Perry, Houston Superior court be 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 29th. 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 ed. 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 for interment. 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 ties. 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 the morning Wednesday, in com pany with bur ministers. —Real estate is appreciating in Sunday School Association at Houston Factory next Saturday— November 1st. Everybody invited, and all are expected to carry well filled baskets. Mr. J. W. Clfirk has rented for one year hie dwelling house on Main street/ to Mr. A. J. Bates, of Brooklyn, N. Y., who will move to Perry with his family within the next few days. —There will be ‘ an interesting meeting of the Union Agricultural and Social Club at Idyl Wylde Park next Saturday, November 1st. The presence of every member is earnestly desired,' and all interest ed are cordially invited. —Mrs. Crane and Mrs. Ed wards, aunt and sister of Tom Woolfolk, were in Perry Sunday and Monday to see the famous prisoner. Mrs. Crane considered the advisability of going to Atlan ta on Monday to ask for a respite for Woolfolk, but finally decided not to do so. —Mr. J. E.

'-A prominent citizen of Perry complained to Marshal Tn-jg house rdth;P„erryHote i fe 1 in with a child Tuesday morning. was asoer».u» - . of the theough the pl sewer As ii is veporier eute. .-1 the j 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 ties. 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. In talking with a friend of Mrs. Cowan, yesterday morning, con cerning the details of nis burial, be expressed unconcern, though say- he preferred that his sisters would uot see him in his coffin. He wanted a decent burial, but said he didn’t care anything about the de tails. The train at noon Tuesday brought an extra coach fall, and that night about 200 people came on ihe train. A few came in ve hicles from the surrounding coun try .Tuesday afternoon, and a con tinuous stream poured into the town from all directions yesterday morning. Some coine ns far as 40 miles in buggies. , At about ten o’clock an extra train load of people came 'in, and the regular train at 12:30 brought another large crowd. The hotels -and boarding houses were filled to overflowing, aud many were forced to lake the best fare they could get ou the streets. The crowd was evidently about one-third whites and twp-thirds blacks, Ihe greater /portion of the whites being visitors from other counties, and nearly.all the ne- groesTesidents of Houston. ' The night guards inform hs that Woolfolk • slept : soundly Monday night, after ten o’clock, and had to b'e aroused for breakfast Tuesday morning, Tuesclay night he did not go to sleep until midnight, but from that time : he slept soundly until morning. Bealer of the Atlanta Journal was the first reporter to arrive) Monday at noon. Then. Bruffy of the Constifutidh, and Loyless of the Macon Evening News came Tuesday noon, followed by others that night—reporters for Macon Telegraph, Americas Times/ Fort Valley Enterprise, Leader and Montezuma Record, andotheas. Woolfolk was shaved by a color ed barber at about II o’clock) At"about 11:30 R. S. and W. W. Woolfolk, cousins of the condemn ed man, entered the cell and con versed with him, and during the morning Mr. Cowan, a brother-in- law, held,a last interview. Dr. Warren, of Macon, and Revs. C. Brewton and -N. D. More house again prayed with him about noon. During the morning he dictated statement, and signed it,- to be read on the gallows. At about 'one o’clock the Perry Rifles marched" to the jail, and as special guard formed in file on ei ther side of the close carriage in waiting. A few minutes later Woolfolk was brought out, and with him Sheriff Cooper, .Deputy Sheriff Riley and Dr. E. W. Warren en tered the carriage. . The cortege moved up Jernigau street to Carroll, down Carroll to the western limit of the town, where the gallows Was located, in a valley, hear the junction of Fanny Gresham branch aud Big Indian creek. Here a dense crowd was packed folk then himsslf offered a prayer, d/y mil Tuesday beseeching mercy, aud proclaiming his innocence of the crime for the commission of which he was con demned to death. Tho appeal for the future welfare of his sis ters was most feelingly uttered,and sobs choked his voice, though no tears fell, aud he continued with out stopping for about 2 minutes. he The scaffold was mounted at 1:12. Prayers for mercy and sal- valtion were then offered by Dr. E. W. Warren, and Pie vs. J. C. Brew- Dr. Warren then said that held a paper that contained Wool folk’s last statement, which he would read at his request The following is a verbatim copy of the statement as originally written by Dr. Warren at the dic tation of Woolfolk, and signed by Woolfolk. •‘I, Thomas G. Woolfoik, realiz ing that the infinitely wise and Holy God sees my heart, and knows all that [ have ever done, and fully understanding that I must stand before His judgement bar, and that to-day, in a few hours, I shall be called into His presence, do in view of the solemnity af the occasion,[declare my innocence,and declare as my last declaration, that that I did not take the life of my father, or auy member of the fam ily, nor have I any knowledge of the person, or persons, who did the murderous deed. (Signed) Thos. G. Woolfolk. Fnrewells were then spoken, and in a low tone Woolfolk said to Sheriff Cooper: ‘You have been kind io me, as have the others here, and I want to part as friends. His last wards, were to Sheriff Cooper: “Good-bye. You have been kind to me.” Woolfolk was standing on the scaffold facing east. The hands and legs of Woolfolk were pinion ed with ropes, and then the hang man’s knot am?cap were adjusted successively. Standing on the eastern side of the scaffold, facing the condemned man, Sheriff Coop er placed his right hand on the le ver, pulled it sharply backward, aud Thomas G. Woolfolk dropped to death, at 1:31 o’clock. The drop —the last act in the record of the-most heinous crime ever com mitted in Georgia—was about 8 feet. The fall was|straight down, and tho body hang rigidly, except a few scarcely perceptible efforts to draw up the lower limbs. Drs. C. R. Mann and L. A. Fel der then took charge of the body, by virtue of court appointment. Death ensued, by strangulation, in 25 minutes, and 11 minutes later the body was cut down and at once placed in the coffin. The coffin, a metalic casket, sil ver mounted, satin-lined, inscribed “at rest,’’was brought from Hawk- insville,. and the body was carried there for interment. Woolfolk stood on the scaffold a splendid specimen of physical manhood, wearing a heavy mous tache and short goatee. He was dressed in a neat new suit of black. While the paryers were offered he stood with bowed head, with left baud to his brow, and occa sionally his fiugers twitched ner vously. About 8,000 people witnessed the execution. Six members of the Houston ju ry that convicted him. witnessed the execution, Last week we claimed that tne Perry Rifles had won the first prize in the state military prize drill at the Piedmont Exposition. The prize was awarded to our company Friday afternoon, and the boys came home ' Saturday morning, Capt. Davis having in his possession a check for one thou sand dollars, awarded by the Pied mont Exposition Company. This prize was won over the Brunswick Riflemen,and the Floyd Rifles of^Mncon. The Brunswick company was awarded the second prize—SoOO. At Fort Vailey the Perry Rifles received cordial congratulations, Dr. W. I. Green giving expression to the feelings of Fort Valley in a neat address. In behalf of the Ri fles Judge A. C. Riley responded. In addition to this, Fort Valley will present to the Rifles a hand some chandelier, to cost 840, as a token of their glad, appreciation,of the winning qualities of our mili tary company. At Perry the boys were cordially welcomed by a large number of la dies, gentlemen and boys. The post office was decoi-ated, and across the street in front Post master Reed had swung to the breeze a white banner of welcome, on which was inscribed in large letters, “Perry—(a picture of a rifle)---Welcome—Thrice Wei come—to the Boys who Work to Win,” — Thrice have the Perry, Rifles contested for prize money* in mili tary contests, aud thrice have they been first victors. On the first occasion they ware given a magnificent banquet on their return to Perry; next time a purse of 8100 was presented to them.
