lin for Defense
Joe Revis was held by Coroner's
jury Wednesday morning for ?Crim
inal court on the charge of killing
IMys Robinson, and Mrs. Laura Rob
inson, daughter of Revis and wife
of the slain man was held for aiding
and abetting said crime. Robinson
was shot Tuesday night, January 17,
brought to Transylvania Hospital
Wednesday afternoon, and died early
Sunday morning as a result of the
wounds. Both Revis and Mrs. Rob
inson wera placed in jail until
Solicitor Pless and other attorneys
can agree upon amount of bonds for
the two defendants.
Carerice Fisher acted as special
coroner at the investigation, and
Messrs. R. P. Kilpatrick, Frank
Garren, W. T. Brown, Milan Nichol
son, Dan W. Merrill and A. B.
Owen constituted the jury. First
session was held last Saturday after
noon, when the jury viewed the body
of Robinson, and tb? hearing was
then continued . until Wednesday
morning, when evidence in the case
was presented by witnesses.
Solicitor J. Will Pless, Jr., could
not be present, and H. E. Martin,
county attorney, '"was delegated to
represent the solicitor at the inves
tigation. Ralph R. Fisher represent
: ed private prosecution, while D. L.
English and L. P. Hamlin represent
ed Revis and Mrs. Martin.
Rev. Roland Robinson, brother of
the murdered man, -Was the first wit
ness to be examined. He was with
hw^ brother much of the time from
'flhesday night of the shooting until
R6?inson died Sunday morning.
Further than establishing the fact
that Ulys Robinson was a native of
this county, .was shot,.. and died as a
result" of -Stteli '^tmndS. * ~Re-?r -*Mr."
Robinson was not questioned.
Mrs. Laura Robinson, widow of
the slain man, was the next witness.
She testified that her father, Joe
ReviS- shot Ulvs Robinson when the
latter was making effort to kill her
, her fnther. She testified that
Robinson had an axe in one hand
and a hunting knife in the other,
when her father shot him. Robinson
and the witness, she testified, had
been making liquor during the day
preceding the shooting in the even
ing. , and that Robinson was drunk
when night came on. She vowed he
started a fuss with Virgil Hyatt,
youn<r mountain boy who had been
at the Robinson home since the pre
ceding Sundny; that both she and
her father endeavored to quiet Rob
inson. and urged him not to fight
the young man, as he was not strong
and had done nothing to Robinson.
Then he got mad at them, the wit
ness said, and turned his attention
to Revis and Mrs. Robinson. The
witness described how Robinson
chased her father and herself about
the house, into the yard and fol
lowed her father back into the house,
whereupon Revis procured the gun,
ran again into the yard where Rob
inson was threatening her. Mrs.
Robinson said her father called vo
her to break loose from her husband
and run. This she did, she said, and
then Robinson turned again on Revis
with axe in one hand and a big knife
* in the other, and it was at that
point of the scrap that Revis fired
the shot that proved fatal to her hus
Attorneys questioned Mrs. Robin
son closely, and she lost her temper
several times, replying heatedly to
the questions shot at her by the law
yers. She told at length how she
?vert for assistance as soon as her
husband fell; how she found the
wounded iv:?!\ in lii" \)\'<\ upon hcv <
ri.'t'.! ill vo ;li li'.i.-v, and saiil she
ilicirjli* ?te\'is and young Hyatt hail
carried jJobiiison into the lions;.
*\ ! u questioned as to the til's t
tali he tolit of tlu' shooting, when
it was declared by her that Clyde
t happell, llovie Chappcll ami Ray
mond Fisher hail called her husband
irom the house and shot iht, Mrs.
Robinson said her husband advised
her to tell that story, believing he
would recover from his wounds, and
asserted that Kobinson saiil he was
(n blame for the vow, therefore he
didn't want his 1'ather-in-law to suf
fer for the shooting. Mrs. Kobinson
insisted that when she t??ld the tiisl
story she was not on oath, and she
didn't consider much harni just to
tell a lie. but when she takes an oath
on the Bible, she is going to tell the
truth, for that is mucn different
from just telling a thing.
Virgil Hyatt was the next witness
called into the room. His evidence ;
was- quite different from that given,
by >lrs. Robinson. Hyatt is about
20 years of age, pathetic in appear
ance, and seemed to impress the
large crowd with his perfect candor j
in telling what he knew about the .
shooting. He had been at the Kob
inson home since Sunday preceding
the affair. Young Hyatt said he had
remained at the house practically all
day Tuesday, and that Robinson and
his wife came in about 5 o'clock in
in the evening. All were drinking, j
Hyatt said, and soon a row started. ;
The witness said Revis and Mrs.' Rob- '
inson were fussing at Robinson, and ,
about 8 o'clock Revis told Robinson |
if he Wanted to fight, to come on |
Out into the yard and fight. Some j
one asked the witness to try to
quiet Robinson, he swore, and he j
made effort to do so, but Robinson 1
told him to turn him loose ancl? get
away. He did. Then he became
frightened, the witness said, and he
and the young brother of Mrs. Rob
inson ran up on the mountainside to
got away from the trouble. A few i
minutes later he heard the report of t
the gun, and some time later Mrs.
Robinson came by and told the. boys i
that her husband had been shot, and 1
she was going for assistance, and >f ;
any on" came there during her ab- I
sence for them to sav that some men
?fume to' RolMnio^
into the yard and shot him.
Hvatf was questioned about the ;
trouble between himself and Robin- '
son and swore that there had been no
trouble at all. He testified that
Robinson was not fussing at him
during the evening and had made no
effort to fight him. He saw no knives
or other weapons about the house
except the shot gun, he said. Hyatt
did not return to the house until
after Mrs. Robinson returned from 1
the Chandler's, where she had gone
for assistance. He went to bed,
aftc a while, but did not. sleep
Mrs. Robinson had testified that 1
' uj;on h?r return from the? Chandler's I
that Revis was sitting on a rock |
near the door, crving, while Virgil ,
Hvitt sat by tlie door.
'Young Hyatt is said to be suffer-,
in-jr with weak heart, and attorneys;
were vevv careful in their c*xaniina- ,
tion of him, having been warned by ,
physicians that any excitement might i
cause the young man's death.
Anderson Chandler was the .next i
witness. He came to the house soon j
after th" shooting, as Mrs. Robinson |
plead with him to do. Ulys Robin
son, he said, told him that Joe Revis
had shot him. Mr. Chandler had seen ,
no big hunting knife about the I
house, such as Mrs. Robinson had
described in her testimony. Reing
recalled to the stand, Mr. Chandler ?
said his wif" had told him several .
weeks ago that Mrs. Robinson had
told her that she intended to kill
her husband, Ulys Robinson, if she
had to shoot him down on Pack
Square in the middle of Ashoville. .
' Sheriff B. ,1. Sitton took the stand, j
and told of being called to the scene .
'of the crime. The sheriff told of '
.his investigation, of finding the place'

"Dear Mr. Jim:- , , .
"After our conversation of last

willing even at a personal
to make the race for any office for

that 1 must decline to be a candi

??First for business i ?asons. In
my opinion there are only two clas. -
e* of people who can personally af
ford to' hold a political office and
those two classes are. the man v,ho
h " no business and ex]> -cts vo make
' a'living out of the office for which
