PANTO A ST & KOHLER,
All preparations for hanging H. L.
Mays, the negro eonvictcd of the murder
of Leo B. "Woods, have been made and
the execution will take, place this morn-
ing between 11 and 12 o'clock, in the
The large heavy scaffold has been
painted black and shrouded in black cloth
in such a manner that only the top of it,
where the Sheriff and prisoner will stand
before the execution, can be seen. The
scaffold is in the rear part of the jail,
about 100 feet from the death cell of the
negro. It is now too late for anyone ex-
cept the Governor to Interfere and pre-
vent the execution. He has not been
asked to do so.
Sheriff John W. To bin will read the
death warrant to Mays in his dark cell
this morning, and then lead him to the
gallows. The prisoner will be dressed in
his new black suit and white shirt, collar
and tie that are furnished by the county.
On the gallows he will be allowed the
privilege of bidding his last farewell and
saying whatever he chooses. He will then
be shrouded in the black cap which rov-
ers his entire body. His hands will be
fastened behind him and his legs chained
The Sheriff will puM a little rope. That
is the signal for the Deputy Sheriffs who
will be i 11 a little room made of black
cloth between the gallows and the wall.
One of the Deputy Sheriffs will pull a
lever and the trap will be sprung. No
one will ever know which deputy pulls
the lever. The deputies nre all sworn to
May Go to His
After the negro has been pronounced
dead the body will be cut down and
From all appearances Mays will go to
his death jerking his head and making
the same queer motions with his hands.
He has again begun the queer actions
which resulted in his trial on a charge of
lunacy. The physicians have declared
that he is feigning insanity. He pretends
not to hear what is said around him or
to him in his cell. When the guards give
him positive orders about picking up
something in his cell, however, he under-
stands, and when they tell him that his
dinner is ready he understands.
He is cleanly in his habits and acts like
a sane man except for his peculiar mo-
tions of the hands and head.
Mays was visited a few days ago by a
priest but refused to talk to him. He has
been visited by his daughter but took no
notice of her. Mays is 48 years old.
Yesterday afternoon a number of young
women from the court house quietly
made arrangements for a visit to the jail
and went in a party to experience the
sensation of looking at a man who had
less than twenty-four hours to live. Like
all the others who look into the cell, they
shuddered and went away.
The crime for which Mays will today be
hanged is one that stirred the community
more than any other that has been com-
mitted in this county for several years.
Mays was working on the rip track at
the Southern Pacific east yards. Leo B.
Woods, a young white man, had often
noticed Mays' peculiar face which is un-
like that of a negro and called him
"Irish." He called to him as he parsed
him going to and from work and said:
Woods was a clerk in an office at the
railroad yards where Mays worked.
For some reason the nickname made
the negro angry. One day he was called
"Irish" and promptly went home and got
his pistol. He returned a few minutes
later and finding young Woods at the
depot at work in his office shot him.
a Brutal One.
The young man was unarmed and not
suspecting danger. After shooting him
Mays wt nt out and was seen walking
around the building stopping at the win-
dows as if to make sure of his work be-
Then an angry crowd gathered and
started after the negro. Slowly and sul-
lenly he walked backwards away from
them pointing th<> pistol at the crowd.
The Sheriff's effi< <• and Police Station
were notified. Without a pistol Deputy
Sheriff J. 1> Nipper, who was off duty
but had heard of the shooting, walked
up to the negro and placed him under
arrest. The negro, however, refused to
give up his pistol a- long as the crowd
threatened. Alter a struggle Nipper took
it from him.
Repeated efforts had been made to ar-
rest the negro. One man called to him
from the crowd: "Mays, you know me.
Surrender to me and I'll sen? that they
don't hurt you."
The man stepped forward and Mays
said: "Don't come any closer." as he
pointed the pistol at him. Another man
ordered the negro to stop and pointed a
pistol at i im. Mays called to him to step
out in the open and they would fight it
He was almost to New Braunfels Ave-
nue, a 'distance of several blocks from
the scene of the murder, before he was
caught by the officer.
His trial was one of the most interest-
ing ever held in this State. At one time
a ruling of the Court of Criminal Appeals
in reversing the case and remanding it
for a new trial threatened to change the
methods of choosing juries in every «• uni-
ty in the State. The Court had held
that there should be no such things as a
talesman after the special venire had
been exhausted, but that, a new special
venire should be drawn. On a motion
for rehearing the Court reversed its for-
mer ruling and affirmed the death pen-
alty. After sentence had been pro-
nounced and only a few days before the
negro was to he hanged his attorneys,
T. M. West and C. A. Davies. filed an
affidavit charging him with lunacy. Four
experts pronounced him sane and after a
hearing the jury declared him sane. He
was then given twelve days to prepare
About one hundred persons will witness
the execution this morning.
Every particle of the law which gives
a man a chance for his life after he has
been convicted by a jury was taken ad-
vantage of. His case was taken to every
high court having jurisdiction. An ap-
peal was made to the United States Su-
preme Court but without avail.

Convention of American Bankers
at St. Louis Watched by Busi-

SAN ANTONIO DELEGATE
ON THE CONFERENCE
Bankers and business men all over the
country are interested In the convention
01 the American Bankers' Association
and the monetary conference proceeding
the meeting at St. Louis next week. A
conference committee will meet October
l-» and the meeting of the association will
be the day following.
At the conference committee will be rep-
r» sentatives of the Chamber of Commerce
01 New York City, the legislative commit-
tee of the American Bankers' Association
and one representative from each of the
forty-two State Associations in tlie Unit-
ed States. Edwin Chamberlain of San
Antonio will be the representative from
Alfred H. Curtis, president of the Na-
tional Bank of North America, and rec-
ognized as one of the best authorities on
banking matters, will be a member of
and one of the chief advisers of the con-
The American Bankers' Association will
probably make recommendations of some
important changes in the currency sys-
tem. After the movement of crops at
this season of the year there is nearly al-
ways a stringency in the money market
in New York City and a more elastic
currency is desired.
The plan of Mr. Curtis is for the deposit
or customs and internal revenue receipts
with the National banks, with the provis-
ion that the banks pay two per cent in-
terest. This, he believes, will go a loin?
way toward solving the currency ones-
tion by preventing the piling up of idle
money in the United States Treasury.
To meet emergencies Mr. Curtis has
outlined a plan for the issuance of a cur-
rency to be known as collateral curren-
cy. This currency under authorization
of Congress would be issued under Mr.
Curtis' plan by the Clearing Houses
of the cities throughout the countrv
and would be based on securities accept-
able to the Clearing Houses.
Mr. Curtis proposes that the amount of
currency issued to any one bank be limit-
ed to twenty-five per cent of the bank's
combined capital and surplus and tkat it
be made a first lien on the bank's assets.
This currency under the plan would he
texed at the minimum rate of interest in
the State in which it is issued.
While this currency would be issued
originally in the form of clearing house
certificates, the plan provides that should
actual bills be required the clearing house
certificates, along with the securities
pledged under them, are to he deposited
with the nearest Assistant Treasurer of
tlie United States who would he author-
ized to issue bills to be known as collat-
eral currency in denominations of from
one to fifty dollars.
The Chamber of Commerce of New
York City recommends legislation leading
tn a more l'lexable bank note currency.

TEACHERS TO ATTEND
An address by Dr. W. S. Sutton of the
University of Texas was the feature of
the sessions of the County Teachers'
The attendance was unusually large
and many of the city teachers who have
attended lectures by Dr. Sutton while at
the University were present.
His address included a great deal of
good advice to teachers 011 many ques-
tions. He particularly called their atten-
tion to the minor details of good work in
a school room and warned them not to
be too ready to adopt new methods and
ideas about the management of a school
"If a teacher is interesting her pupils
in the work and managing the school
room in a manner that makes the pupils
active and teaches them to do things for
themselves and particularly to think for
themselves she lias made a success. It
is absolutely essential for the teacher to
bear constantly in mind the importance
of developing self-activity. Too many
persons ot the present age who are well
educated are not great thinkers. Books
were intended to give us the thoughts of
others and preserve the knowledge, of the
world, but when they are used to save us
the trouble of thinking they are mis-
"T have found in my own experience as
a teacher that the most difficult task of
al! is to be patient. When I was ex-
plaining some simple matter and a child
coud not understand I was tempted to be
impatient and in a bad humor.
"We must remember that we are de-
veloping the minds of men and women
and that development that Is to be last-
ing and important progresses slowly."
The program carried out yesterday was
very interesting. It is as follows:
"Composition." Miss Brown; "Civics in

TO AVAR DEPARTMENT
The San Antonio Rifle Club, which is
now the oldest organization of its kind in
Texas, will have a golden jubilee to cele-
1 brate next May or June.
For that event it is expected there will
be an elaborate program, and that the
, rifle clubs contingent to San Antonio will
I be invited here to participate in the
jubilee. Probably steps will be taken at
an early day to informally discuss • or
1 outline a program for this jubilee.
Such an event as the golden jubilee of
the San Antonio Rifle Club will be an
important event for the riflemen of this
: vicinity. It would tend to rouse a great
deal of enthusiasm among those who are
fond of rifle shooting.
The San Antonio Rifle Club recently
became affiliated with the National Rifle
Association of America, which is a pa-
triotic organization for the purpose of
encouraging rifle shooting among the
citizens throughout the United States.
The National Association is to rifle shoot-
• ing what the general staff is to the mili-
| tar.v forces of this country.
j The National Rifle Association presents
| annually to affiliated clubs a medal,
mounted in morocco case, suitably in-
scribed. fcr competition among its mem-
bers. The results of these competitions
are published annually. Shooting for
this inedcl will be one of the interesting
events for the local riflemen.
All members of clubs affiliated with
the National Association, are eligible to
compete for a National marksman's re-
serve qualification, and on qualification
will be given a lapel button and listed in
| the War Department.
, To an extent the affiliated clubs of the
National Association are subsidized by
the Government in that such magazine

sen rifle. As soon as the new Springfield
magazine rifles are available the rifle-
men may obtain these.

In a runaway early yesterday morning
near Terrell's Hot Wells, on the I'leasan-

their little son were seriously injured.
Mrs. Skinner was run over by the wagon
and is suffering from internal injuries,
besides a number of painful cuts and

Mr. Skinner and his family were 011
their way to their home at Tilden when
the accident occurred.
Mr. Skinner was driving a pair of
horses that were not well broken. He
was holding the lines between his knees,
pfelinw .111 apple for his little son. when
the horses hi.ic.me frightened and made
a sudden jump forward. The lines were
pulled from him. He jumped from the
wagon, hoping to catch the linep as soon
as he struck the ground. He missed them
and fell, sustaining many bruises. He
was then unable to overtake the team.
Mrs. Skinner lifted the little boy from
his seat and waiting for a good oppor-
tunity dropped the litle boy in a clump
of bushes by the roadside. She then
jumped from the wagon, but did not jump
far enough. She fell under the wheels.
Beside her internal injuries she was bad-
ly cut and bruised. Her nose is broken.
The injuries may prove fatal. The boy
was bruised considerably. The palm of
his right hand was out open to the bone.
