The Jury Drawn Thursday Afternoon
and Witnesses Testify-Witnesses Ex
cluded Until Called to Testify.
The Salisbury correspondent
to the Charlotte : Observer says
that the trial of -Tom Carr and
Will' Edwards, the defendants in
the Concord murder case, came
up" Thursday afternoon. Col.
Paul B Means, of Concord, who,
with Mr. Lee S Overman, re
presents Edwards, moved for a
continuance as to his client,
alleging that he had been pre
vented from executing the order
of the court authorizing him to
have Robert Richardson, who
was in company with the two de
fendants at the time of the slay
ing, taken to the scene where the
shooting had occurred, there to
be examined in behalf of Ed
wards. Notice had been duly
served, ho said, on both the so
licitor and Mr. W G Means,
for ,fhe State. He had
not been able to hold the ex
'animation on the 20th Hist., and
an attempt to do so on the 21st
was frustrated by Mr. L T Hart-
sell. Richardson's counsel, and
Mr. W G Means, who advised
the prisoner not to testify. Both
of these gentlemen, corroborated
by the mayor of Concord, Mr. G
W Means, denied this, stating
that they had only told Richard
son that he need not testify un
less he wished to. Richardson
has not been indicted and is sub
poenaed as State's witness. Col.
Means' motion was refused.
Messrs. A H Price and John S.
Henderson moved for a sever
ance, as they believed the line of
defense of their client, Carr, to
bo utterly incompatible with
that of Edwards. Tins also was
refused, when the next matter in
order became to select a jury,
which was done with gratifying
promptness, though the veuire-
1A tn ho accent abie to
three sets, namely, the State,
Carr and Edwards, all hostile
each to each.
On motion of Col. Moans all
witnesses were excluded from
the room until callod to testify.
Dr. L M Archey and T R Pen-
ninger were put on the stand by
the State; counsel for defendant,
