While returning home from Jim Robinsons Sunday evening, the horse belonging to Mrs; Bob Robinson became frightened, which caused it to. run away throwing Mrs. Robinson ouf and demolishing the buggy. It was thought for a time the injuries of Mrs. Robinson were: such-: that she could .not recover. To the relief of her many friends, however, was improving when last heard from. Richmond, Va., Nov. 24>-Henry Clay Beattie, Jr., before his death in the electric chair at 7:23 a.m., today, confessed tQ the murder of his wife. The statement, which was given out in the rotunda of a downtown hotel follows: "I, Henry Clay Beattie, de-sii ous of dtanding right before God and. man, do on this the 23rd day of November, 1911, confess my guilt of the crimel charged against me. Much that was published concerning the details was . not-true, but the awful fact, without the harrowing cir-starices, remains. For this action, I am truly sorry, and believing that I am at peace * with God and soon to pass into His presence, this statement is made." Beattie's confession v�as followed by this statement by the attending lriininters: "This statement was signed in the presence of the two attending ministers and is "the only statement that can * and will be made public by *] them. ' 'Mr. Beattie desires us to thank the many friends for kind letters and expressions of interest and the public for whatever sympathy was felt or expressed." Throughout the forenoon the! city had rung with rumors that Beattie had confessed. These j were denied at the penitentiary where, in connection with the w-nouncement of death, the declaration'was made that the condemned man h ad statement. The attending ministers would not discuss the case in any way until they had visited Beattie's parents in South Richmond and had secured their permission to make the confession public. The confession evidently was made at the eleventh hour.'when Beattie finally became convinced that; all hope of escaping the elec-tri'p chair had passed. Two days ago(rRev. Dr. Fix announced that Beattie had said he would not confess. This was ascribed to the fact that Beattie desired to spare his, father the blow of admitting gijilt after his many protestations of innocence to the aged parent. In Beattie's mind there was a struggle between filial devotion and a desire not to go to his death with a lie on his lips. He was urged to .confess by his spiritual advisers and at last broke down.

Young Beattie's death chamber was below ground. It has no windows. of its isolation and the death ceMis adjoining, tire chamber is as silent an an abandoned tomb. Into one corner of the chamber a black cable drooped. It was the heavy main wire from the dynamos of 'the city lighting plant, a half mile away. The prison authorities don't depend cn their own dynamos for the fatal shock. Over this cable poured 2200 volts* of electricity. It was as ailent as it "was deadly.
