Atli'cti- W'- It. .! ;iven by The trial of Erne: t Kime for the murder of Frank Garner on March 7. began Thursday moaning and occu pied three days, tl.e jury returning a verdict of seconl degree murder about 10:.1(J o'clock Saturday r.ight. Most of the day Thursday was con sume:) in selecting the jury, almost the entire venire of 100 men being used up before the t.'.elvo wei'e se cured. One witness, 3! is. Garner, was examined t'r.;.t afternoon and the taking of evidence v as completed Friday a f tern -on. Arivinent for the State was opened by Seiii itor Haydcn Clement, who was f el loved by Dis tvict Attorney V. C. Hammer for the defense. Solicitor Ci.oior-.t was as sisted by Messrs. A, L. Brooks and O. L. Sapp, of Greensboro; and J. A. Spence, of Asheboro, while ex-Judge W. P. Bynum, oi' Greensboro; and Hammer and Kelly, of Asheboro, de feniled the accused man. The evidence was substantially the same ;.s that reported immediately after the crime was committed. It seems that Kime went to the house cf Gai ner, a conversation concerning the dog law aro:-;e, and an altercation followed, in which Garner ordered Kime to leave the house and followed him outride the door. As he was re turning to the house, Kime turned, drew a knife, and cut Garner so bad ly that he died almost instantly. The jury returned a verdict of sec ond degree murder, and Judge Shaw sentenced the prisoner to thirty years at hard labor. Sheriff Birkhead took Kime down to Raleigh Tuesday of this week, and he began his sentence in just a month, lacking one day, from the date the murder was committed. Throughout the trial, Mrs. Kime, a neatly-dressed and gentle-looking Utile woman was near her husband. She with Mrs. Garner, a little woman in black, and young Cicero Garner, a bey of seventeen or eighteen, made a y;ahetic picture. The jury that tried the case was cori;)Ohed 'of the following citizens: .Ves-ns. ViHic JPlier, C. A. Bristow. J. C. SI. eon. D. Link Nelson, T. F. I'ool, il. l!. Vow, V. H. Tucker, S. F.

Damage Estimated. At Half Million Dollars In Central Part of State City of Raleigh Thrown in Darkness One of the most devastating storms of recent years swept over the Atlan tic coast and leached well up into the Piedmont region last Saturday. The disturbance was general from Maine to 1" lorida, snow tailing as far dowl as South Carolina. Many cities and towns, including Raleigh and Norloik were cut oil lrom telegraph, telephone or train connection for several hours The city of Raleigh was in darkness on the night ot April .!, and the snov was nearly two feet deep, damage in the city being estimated at $ol)U,00i. Silcr City was in darkness and with out telephone connection for seveial days. T'1.3 rural mail carriers weie unable to go on Saturday. In Norfolk, Virginia, business ya practically suspended. The tides swept . up the principal streets U a depth of two feet. In Richmond, three men lost their lives by coming in con tact with live wires that had teen borne down by the storm.

The participants in the altercution were John McPherson rnd Georee Foust. It seems McPherson is a tenant on the land of Foust; and that the land lord accused the tenant of taking wood, to which he had no just claim Foust went to the home of McPherson and left a message for him. Later, McPherson went to the home of Foust and the altercation arose, in which Foust slashed him badly with a knife. The miured man is in a critical con dition as the result of three deep gash es, on the arm, shoulder and chest. At a hearing before Justices of the Peace H. T. Bray and H. P. Moffitt, Tuesday.
