The "stars" "re rattled from the
second inning, when their players

At the end of the game Forest

For ten days the trial of
Shemweil for the killing: of Dr.
L Payne, Sr , has been going on m
All eyes have been turned Lexing
Judge Boykin completed his
charge 1 minute before 12 Satur-
day night. Numbers expected a
verdict on Sunday, and crowds hung
around the court house.
About 8:20 this (Monday) morn
ing the jury came into the court
room. The foreman, Mr. Primm,
arose and stated that cne member
of the jury would state on what
point they wanted light. Said jury
man stated that some understood
that the jury either had to find a
verdict in the 1st degree or "not
guilty." The judge explained the
point the jury ietired and before
the judge could get out they re
turned. This was inside of 5 min
utes. None of the prisoner's relatives,
except his son Dermott, were pres
ent. All of his lawyers were nm.
ent, none on the part of the State.
The court house was about filled.
The noise of the crowds coming up
was so great that the judge ordered
the door c'osed and locked.
The prisoner was asked to stand
up. There was no change on hi3
countenance. He at on"e fixed his
eyes on the jury. When asked if
they had agreed, the foreman wa3
asked for the verdict. He said
"Not Guilty," At this juncture
little Dermott sprang upon his
father's neck, and several dozen
shouted and began moving towards
Shemweil. The judge ordered
quiet and instructed the sheriff to
arrest those further disturbing the
The prisoner was released. He
went out immediately and to his
drug store where crowds Hocked to
see him. It is said that the yerdict
surprised the sympathizers of the
deceased and also the friends of
Shemweil. Many of the latter
expected a verdict of manslaughter.
The people are quiet, though yet
talking of the great trial. The
statement that trouble is feared, is,

The matter is believed to be
ended. Shemweil was on the struts

morning train for Black mountain.
The verdict is a surprise to many
It has Deen a hard fought legal
battle ; it is a most unfortunate and
terrible affair ; it has made a home
sad and robbed it of its head ; it has
carried a devoted wife through seas
of trouble and anxiety in clinging to
her husband. People all over the
State have discussed the matter and
taken sides. This verdict ends it;
and while many are surprised at the
verdict, they nevertheless hope all is
