F, Harding, of Charlotte, presiding. The term will be for »nly one week, the sec ond week having been cancelled, and only criminal cases are dock eted for trial. Outstanding among local cases on the calendar are those of Grace Fleming, filling station operator ac cused of shooting Milo' Sanders with a shotgun Sunday night, and of Sanders, who is charged with breaking and entering Fleming’s place of business. The two were bound over at a magistrate’s hear ing Wednesday afternoon—Fleming under $500 bond on charges of as sault with a deadly weapon, carry ing a concealed weapon and violat ing the prohibition law; Sanders under $200 bond for breaking and entering. Case Moved from Graham Judge Harding is expected to is sue a venire for impaneling a spe cial jury to try Mathewson, whose case was removed from Graham county court on a writ issued by Judge Harding at Robbinsville in September. At an earlier term Mat hewson was indicted and tried, but a mistrial was called when the jury failed to agree on a verdict. When the case was called again in Sep tember the state moved that it be transferred to Macon, contending that due to the defendant’s wide connections and influence in Gra ham county it would be impossible to give him a fair trial. Tlie de fense opposed the motion, but Judge Harding granted it. Pleads Insanity • Mathewson was alleged to have shot his wife, mother of a small babv, while she was eating a meal at the counter of their cafe. The baby died some weeks later. Insan ity was the defense plea at the first trial. Newt Moody, of Mur phy; McKinley Edwards, of Bryson City, and J,ack Morphew, of Rob binsville, appeared as .attorneys for Mathewson.
