The same questions in relation to Pre-
sident Lincoln and Booth have perplexed
historians for nearly 100 years.
'* It is a fantastic story.
Earlier in the.day the President had.
visited the War department where he saw
. .Edwin M. Stantoni the Secretary of War,
who was responsible for security.
He asked Stanton to allow one ikjor
Eekert to- atten his theatre party as an

SOM INT.IUGUING QUESTIOS ABOUT SB
ASSaSSINATICN UP TOA) PMOaS a ..

At 10.30 p.m. on April 14, 1865; Ahia-
ham Lincoln, President of the United tates
was assassinated.*
He was shot in his private box at Fo's
Theatre in VJashington where he and his
wife were listening to a performance of
"Our American Cousin."
The assassin was a young actor named
John Wilkes Booth, who regarded himself
as an Auerican Brutus.
After the killing he leapt on the stage
shouted "Sic semper tyrannis" (The motto
of Virginia), escaped through the repr
of the theatre and rode away on a Jrse
that was waiting at the stage door.
Twelve days later Booth himself was shot
dead.
He and a fellow conspirator named Herold
had taken refuge in a barn in Virginia.
The building was surroundedby twenty-
five soldiers. Ierold surrendered.-nd
the barn was set on fire.
It was hardly possible that Booth should
have escaped. Moreover, it was clearly de-
sirable that he should be taken alive.
Never.theless one .Z :the.-soldiers shot
him.
The analogy with the death of Presa4ent
Kennedy is 6bvious.
IN'EaiC& CASE the President was murdered.
IN EACH CASE, also, the murderer was
eliminated before any information could
be obtained from him.
-And each case raises certain questions.
Vhy were the security precautions not
more adequate?. i
Why was the assassin allowed to be
killed?
Was he acting alone or. in concert with
another man or as one of a group of con-
spirators?
No doubt the inquiry that. has just.been
set up by President Johnson under the
ch chairmanship of Chief Justice Earl Warren
S will seek the answers to these questions
in relation to President Kennedy and
Oswald.

Incredible as it may seem, Stanton re-
fused.
Licoln then sought out Eckert himself
and tried to persuade hin.
Eckert would not go.
His work, it seemed, could not be post-
poned nt even for the President of the
United States.
So Lincoln was accompanied instead by a
Major Rathbone who was stabbed by Booth
as he tried to prevent the escape.
How came it that the murderer was able
to reach the presidential box?
There waa a police officer on guard named
Charles F. Parker.
He was plainly guilty of a gross dere-
liction of duty.
The mystery is why he was ever appointed
at all to guard the XPresident.
His record in the police force was, to
say the least, indifferent.
About a year after joining the force a
police board found that he had shown a dis-
position to be insubordinate and that he
had used "exceedingly violent and djire -
spectt a" language.
On three later occasions he was brought
before a cliebo .
bTe charges were dinsissed, but it was
clear that on one occasion he had visited

F. W. VLAUN & SON


They dould just breathe and foor' could
be placed into their mouths but that was
all.
Four were executed. The others received
lengthy sentences of inprisonuent.
The central figure in all these proceed-
ings following the President's death was
Stanton.
The question inevitably suggests itself
Was he himself privy to the murder of Lin-
coln?

EXA M I'NE D

The evidence is closely examined in a
book entitled "Why 'as Lincoln Murdered?"
by Otto Eisenschinl.
He makes an extremely formidable case
against Stanton.
But there can be no absolute certainty.
The inquiry into the circumstances of
President Kennedy's death will be very
different from the inquiries into the
death of his predecessor nearly a century


ago.

Cock-fighting:


The Cock-fighting season'opened with
a. "bang" on Sunday, Decedber 8, at the
pit of Philip Arnell at Grand Case.
The battle of the day was a match be-
tween "Patricia" of Belle Plaine and "Any
noon" of French Cul-de-Sac. Betting on
this battle was high and the battle was
long and fierce "Patricia" finally won
the battle by killing "Any moon".
The Simpsonbay group started off the day
with bad luck by losing the first three
battles, but after lunch the boys from
Sinpsonbay hit luck and won five straight
battles.
All said and done it was a good day for
the lovers of this exciting if even some-
what cruel sport.

Conner LUX sweet soap, yours truly Incredible as it nay seen, Stanton refused. Licoln then sought out Eckert himself and tried to persuade bin. Eckert would not go. Eis work, it seemed, could not be postponed not even for the President of the United States. So Lincoln was accompanied instead by a Major dathbone who was stabbed by Booth as he tried to prevent the escape. How came it that the murderer was able to reach the presidential box? There waa a police officer oh guard named Charles F. Parker. He was plainly guilty of a gross dereliction of duty. The mystery is why he was ever appointed at all to guard the President. His record in the police force was, to say the least, indifferent. About a year after joining the force a police board found that he had shown a disposition to be insubordinate and that he had used "exceedingly violent and diare-... spectful" language. On three later occasions he was brought before a police board. The charges were dismissed, but it was clear that on one occasion he had visited a house o f ill fame with no other excuse than that he was sent for by the keeper. Not an inspiring record: Yet this was the man chosen to guard the President. After the assassination Parker was, very naturally, charged with neglect of duty. There pre no records of the hearing before the police board. But, astonishing as it may seem, the charge was dismissed. Parker was not even reprimanded. Even more fantastic is Booth's escape from V/ashington. After the assassination, orders went out free the War Department to close all roads leading from Washington so that any fugitive would certainly be intercepted. There was only one road in respect of which no orders were issued. This was the road leading due south which Booth was almost certain to take, as indeed he did. He was able to ride away without any difficulty of impediment. Various people helped Booth and Herold to escape One nan provided them with a boat to cross the Potomac. Another afforded them a shelter for several days. D A N C 0 v; 1 Lbs makes 3 Ltr. of Milk Yet niether they nor anyone else was prosecuted fur giving aid and comfort to them. Booth kept a diary. It was taken from his dead body by tie officer'.in charge, one Colonel' Baker. The existence of the diary did not become generally known until two years later. Then it was examined by the judiciary committee of the House of Representatives. It appeared that 18 pages dealing with the period prior to Lincoln's assassination, had been cut out. The trial of the conspirators was one of the strangest proceedings in recorded history. It took place before a military court i consisting of nine officers. The accused were eight in number, seven men and one woman. At first tLey were held in chains and close confinement. But later i]dwin Staaton ordered that each prisoner should have a canvas bag put over his head and tied around khe neck with a hole for proper breathing and eating but not seeing. In this way the suspects were prevented from communicating with each other or with anybody else.

Four were executed. The others received lengthy sentences of inprisontient. The central figure in all these proceedings following the President's death was Stanton. The question inevitably suggests itself Was he himself privy to the murder of Lincoln? EXAMINE D The evidence is closely examined in a book entitled "Why Vas Lincoln tfurdered?" by Otto Eisenschinl. He makes an extremely formidable case against Stanton. But there can be no absolute certainty. The inquiry into the circumstances of President Kennedy's death will be very different from the inquiries into the death of his predecessor nearly a century ago.

The bride who was beautifully dressed in blue was given in uarriage by Mr. Charles Hodge of French Cul-de-Sac and Miss Magdyla Hood was the maid-of-honour. All listened attentively as Pastor' Jircher conducted a most solemn marriage ceremony. A well attended reception was held at Marigot, where there'was much to eat and drink. Among the many distinguished guests were: Dr. H. Petit, Mayor and General Councillor of Marigot and his wife, Deputy Mayor of Marigot, Mr. F. Choisy, Mr. and Mrs. Georges H. Tundu, Mr. Polo Eyman, former Deputy liayor of Marigot and Mr. and Mrs: N. Petit. The Windward Islands Opinion congratulates the newly wedded couple and wishes them many years of happiness. SOVbl LNT;IIGUING QUESTIONS ABOUT THE ASSASSINATION uF TWO FItSSIDENTS At 10.30 p.m. on April 14, 1865, Abraf ham Lincoln, President of the United States was assassinated. He was shot in his private box at Ford's Theatre in Washington where he and his wife were listening to a performance of "Our American Cousin." The assassin was a young actor named John V.'ilkes Booth, who regarded himself as an .American Brutus. After the killing he leapt on the stage shouted "Sic semper tyrannis" (The motto of Virginia), escaped through the rear of the theatre and rode away on a horse that was waiting at the stage door. Twelve days later Booth himself was shot dead. He and a fellow conspirator named Herold had taken refuge in a barn in Virginia. The building was surrounded by twentyfive soldiers. Herold surrendered and the barn was set on fire. It -.as hardly possible that Booth should have escaped. Moreover, it was clearly desirable tliat he should be taken alive. Nevertheless one of the soldiers shot hiia. The analogy with the death of President Kennedy is obvious. IN'EuCK CASE the President was murdered. IN EACH CASE, also, the murderer was eliminated before any information could be obtained from him. And each case raises certain questions. Why were the security precautions not more adequate?^ • :ii Why was the assassin allowed to be killed? Was he acting alone or in concert with another man or as one of a group of conspirators? No doubt the inquiry that has just been set up by President Johnson under the chairmanship of Chief Justice Earl Warren will seek the answers to these questions in relation to President Kennedy and Oswald. P E R P L E X E D The same questions in relation to President Lincoln and Booth have perplexed historians for nearly 100 years. It is a fantastic story. Earlier in the day the president had visited the War Department where he saw %  E dwin M. Stanton, the Secretary of War, who was responsible for security. He asked Stanton to allow one Major Eckert to attend his theatre party as an escort. "I have seen Eckert break five pokers, one after the other, over his arm," Lincoln declared. "And I am thinking he would be the kind of man to go with me this evening: May I take him?" i-t
