The trial of Erne: t Kime for the
murder of Frank Garner on March 7.
began Thursday moaning and occu
pied three days, tl.e jury returning a
verdict of seconl degree murder about
10:.1(J o'clock Saturday r.ight.
Most of the day Thursday was con
sume:) in selecting the jury, almost
the entire venire of 100 men being
used up before the t.'.elvo wei'e se
cured. One witness, 3! is. Garner,
was examined t'r.;.t afternoon and the
taking of evidence v as completed
Friday a f tern -on. Arivinent for the
State was opened by Seiii itor Haydcn
Clement, who was f el loved by Dis
tvict Attorney V. C. Hammer for the
defense. Solicitor Ci.oior-.t was as
sisted by Messrs. A, L. Brooks and
O. L. Sapp, of Greensboro; and J. A.
Spence, of Asheboro, while ex-Judge
W. P. Bynum, oi' Greensboro; and
Hammer and Kelly, of Asheboro, de
feniled the accused man.
The evidence was substantially the
same ;.s that reported immediately
after the crime was committed. It
seems that Kime went to the house
cf Gai ner, a conversation concerning
the dog law aro:-;e, and an altercation
followed, in which Garner ordered
Kime to leave the house and followed
him outride the door. As he was re
turning to the house, Kime turned,
drew a knife, and cut Garner so bad
ly that he died almost instantly.
The jury returned a verdict of sec
ond degree murder, and Judge Shaw
sentenced the prisoner to thirty years
at hard labor. Sheriff Birkhead took
Kime down to Raleigh Tuesday of
this week, and he began his sentence
in just a month, lacking one day, from
the date the murder was committed.
Throughout the trial, Mrs. Kime,
a neatly-dressed and gentle-looking
Utile woman was near her husband.
She with Mrs. Garner, a little woman
in black, and young Cicero Garner,
a bey of seventeen or eighteen, made
a y;ahetic picture.
The jury that tried the case was
cori;)Ohed 'of the following citizens:

CUTTING AFFRAY NEAR
News comes to Asheboro of a se
rious cutting affray near Coleridgo
last Monday. The participants in the
altercution were John McPherson rnd
It seems McPherson is a tenant on
the land of Foust; and that the land
lord accused the tenant of taking
wood, to which he had no just claim
Foust went to the home of McPherson
and left a message for him. Later,
McPherson went to the home of Foust
and the altercation arose, in which
Foust slashed him badly with a knife.
The miured man is in a critical con
dition as the result of three deep gash
es, on the arm, shoulder and chest.

Peace H. T. Bray and H. P. Moffitt,
