Judge Frank Carter Open

ing--Charges the Qrand
Jury in an Instructive
inal Cases Disposed of
The March Term of Martin
County Court convened here at 10
o'clock Monday morning with
Judge Frank Carter, of Asheville,
presiding. Solicitor Richard Alls
brook, of Tarboro, represented the
State. -» .—....—_
The charge of Judge Carter was
a rather pleasant departure from
the usual cut and dried definitions
of the various crimes. He weut
only into details sufficiently to in
form the jury in a general way of
the various phases of their duties.
In plain words he presented to the
their official duties. That
they must separate themselves from
personal prejudices or favors and
investigate and true t presentment
make of all criuie committed with
in their knowledge or brought to
Whether they were in sympathy
or opposed to tl)e law, it remained
their duty to see that the law wan
enforced. That if the law was not;
being enforced, piiblic sentiment
was largely responsible for its nor
enforcement. That to permit any
law to be constantly broken with
out regard to its enforcement,
created criminal public seatiment.
His chaegt- was especially
upon the carrying of pistols, Ittiivca
and razors, alld the illicit sale of
whiskey. Jude Carter says his at
titude .toward the criminal law is
not to make spectacular sentences,
but to make suich a disposition of
each individual case as will tend to
lessen crime and Create a law-abid
ing sentiment. His sentences have
been in keeping with this position
and have been satisfactory to both
the law-breakers and the bar.
The Grand Jury was composed
of the following: C. D Jenkins, 15

WILLIAMSTON, N. C.. FRIDAY, MARCH 22. 1912
Miss Eva Wynne Dead -
On Monday evening at 11 o'clock
p. m. at the residence of her father
L. B. Wynne Esq. the soul of Miss
Eva, left its tenement of clay and
passed out into the eternal Beyond
to be with her Savior and Lord.
She was born in this county at
Everetts and was the second daugh
ter of Mr. L. B. and Mrs. Ella
Wynne. She was 24 years old the
3rd of October last.
Though she had been a great
sufferer, yet she had strong hope
that she would recover, but God
knew what was best and prepared
her for her departure as she gave
herself to Him. Quiet, modest,
gentle, and lovely in disposition,
she loved her home and people and
cared but little for the pomp and
vanity of the world. As a steno
grapher she did excellent work and
commanded the esteem of those who
employed her. Proficient and oblifj
itig her work was appreciated. As
a Sunday School scholar her at
tendance well was almost per
feet. She was a member of the
Philatheas. and as a rule attended
the sittings of that
j when fccalih permitted she rarelv
missed any Church service. On
the 1 ith day of February, sbe uuit
!ed witfh the Williomston Baptist
Church, and would have been bap
j tized into its fellowship, if her
health had allowed. Conscious to
! the end she was not without know
ledge tlrut the messenger was call
-1 ing for her to answer the summous
of the King. When the end came
it was quiet and peaceful.- Sbe
leaves a lather, mother, four sisters
and two small brothers to mourn
their loss. '
The funeral setvices were con
ducted from the home at half pa it
2 o'clock Wednesday. A large
number of relatives and friends
gathered to pay the last tributes of
respect to her memory and the
beautiful casket covered with most
beautiful flowers was drawn to the
Baptist Cemetery, where all that
was mortal was interred to remain
till the morning of the resurrection.
Rev. Geo. J. Dowell conducted the
services and the frjeuds left hoping
to meet again where there will be
no sad farewell. The sympathies
of the good people of Williamston
extend to the stricken family, and
commend them to the great Healer
for the Balm that will always
soothe for comfort in this hour of
"Dearest sister, thou hast left us,
And thy loss we deeply feel;
But tis God that has bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal."
