Loses Life In Escape Attempt &;eak for Liberty on Way *Uo County Farm Ends in Death J. W. Gllpin, about 40, was shot, and fatally wounded by Henry .Lutes. su|>erlnlendcnt of the Mississippi county . prison faun, :it Luxova .late yesterday afternoon Gllpin;:'who had been fined in municipal court here earlier yesterday, was shot as he attempted to escape from the prison farm superintendent, who was accompanying him to the farm, near Luxora. Gilpln had been fined $25 on his plea of guilty in municipal court to a misdemeanor charge of conspiracy • to cheat, based on a "confidence game" trick in which he and a confederate fleeced a farm youth out of $20 on the streets here Thursday. Papers found on his person at the time of his arrest indicated that he was a resident of Lequire, Okla but it was learned that he had a wife and baby at Texarkana, Ark. Stop to Buy Tobacco Lutes had taken charge of all- pin and another prisoner at the county jail here to take them to the county farm. Neither 'prisoner was slmckled, it being Lutes' custom to transfer prisoners from the county jails to the farm in his automobile without forcing • them to be manacled. Lutes said that Gilpin complained bitterly on the.way to the farm and asked that he be alldw T ; ed to stop-and get some tobacco. A*.-* - h «- '^frequenOji^i^dpcs; -tutes EtoppecV-at a sinall;service : sta'fion and store, at the 'edge of Luxora, to allow the prisoner to buy tobacco, instead of waiting for an attendant to come out and take orders,. Qilpin swung out of the car as it rolled to a stop and hurried inside. As he came out of the door, Gilpin dashed around the service station and into a nearby cotton field. Lutes started after him, ordering him to stop, but the prisoner only rail the faster 'and hurled buck an oath of defiance, Lutes rnld. The farm superintendent said he pulled his .38 calibre revolver and snapped • the trigger ns he was running but the weapon failed to discharge, the hammer clicking against a defective bullet. By that time Gilpin was about 50 or CO yards ahead v of him, Lutes stated, and he again snapped the trigger. The shot fired and struck Gilpin In the back near the right side, passing through hts body and knocking him down. Resists Help He was returned to the station and Lutes said he attempted to put him in his auto, saying that he wanted to rush him to the . Blythcvillc hospital, but Gilpin, cursing, refused to enter the car and would not let anybody help him. The farm manager summoned a physician who finally nulctcd the prisoner after the latter had at first" re/used his aid. Then the prisoner was brought to Ihe Blythevllle hospital where he died about 8 o'clock last night. Gilpin and a confederate had used a trick knife to secure $20 from a farm youth here. The confederate escaped with the youth's money but Gilpin was arrested when the victim complained to authorities. He admitted the confidence game trick to officers and also upon arraignment in municipal court, Gilpln's body was being held at the Cobb Funeral Home morgue loday awaiting possible communication with relatives. So. far as could be learned today no official Investigation in connection with the shooting is planned. Lutes said Gilpin told him after the shooting that "I looked you over and decided you didn't have a gun." Burdctte Negro Hurt When Car Hits Truck LUXORA, Ark.-Virgll Alexander, a negro of; BurdeUc, was very seriously injured In an automobile wreck Thursday night near McDonald's store, about two miles north • of here on Highway 61, when his car hit the rear end of a truck.
