THE LEXINGTON CASE-
Excitement is Not so Great amiThuigN
Are Quieting Down To be Tried
The funeral of Dr. R L Payne
took place today in Lexington. His
daughter, Mrs. Dr. Breckwith, of
Pennsylvania, came in this morning
on the Florida Special and took the
local train at 8:45.
C B Watson, of Winston, who is
engaged as counsel for the defend
ant, came back this morning at
10:15. He talked to a Record-man
for a few minutes and while he of
course, declined to say what the line
of fense would be, he said enough
to show exactly what course they
He said : "We shall contend, and
feel that we can show, that our man
(Shemwell) is guilty of nothing in
the world not one single thing."
This means that self defense will
be the plea; that Shemwell wa3 on
on his way home, the Paynes, Dr.
and his son, being in front of him ;
that suddenly Dr. Payne, Sr., turned
towards him ; thinking that his life
was in danger and that father and
son intended to kill him, Shemwell
Gred to save his own life.
Watch and see if this is not the
case tc a dot.
Mr. Watson, being asked if he in
tended to try the case in Davidson
county, replied : "We don't want it
tried anywhere else ; we should ob
ject if it wa3 contemplated to try it
elsewhere, Furthermore, we shall
be ready to try at the next term of
court, week after next, and shall ins
sist on going to trial. Dr. Payne is
of course, well-known throughout
the county. So is our client and we
have nothing to fear."
There are of course two sides to
every case. So far Shemwell re
fuses to talk and Mr. Watson says
his mouth vvill remain closed, of
Let him get in the newspapers and
he will be executed in short order.
