CoTivicted of Murdering Blanche La ! mont in San FranciscOi JURY OUT ONLY FIVE MINUTES. Itt Terrtlct Reached Without Dlacatalon and Applauded by a Great Crowd Pa thetic Seen In Court Hit Mother Be come Hysterical, Ilugs and Kiaaea Him, Shrieking All the Time. ,' Theodore Durrant was founi guilty at 5an Franeisco, Cab, of murdering Blanche' Lament. It took the jury only five, mlnutei to render a decision. The verdict wa a surprise to the stolid young prisoner, his relatives and eounseV His mother, who ;at with him every honr of the time since the trial began, had hoped to the last momeat that one, and perhaps two of the jurors would vote for acquittal. Tho District Attorney, i-n the contrary, said pri vately before he began his three days' ad dresp, that he was eatisHed the jurors bal f aeh deeided ca conviction when the evi dence was all in and before tha argument began. District Attorney Baruea closed his argu ment for the peoplo with a powerful and eln 'iunt appeal for justice. Superior Judg- K J. Muiphy lelierel au elaborate charge to the jury touching tha law of circumstan tial evidence and matters of legal presump tions in the afternoon. Tho charge occuple 1 an hour and a half. Attorney Dickiuson,"for Durrant. made A formal exception to the charge. The jury retired at twenty-six minutes of four o'clock in charge of two deputy sheriff. They went across the crowded corridor to the rooms of tho Grand Jury, which had adjourned to ac commodate them. Tho jury took sixteen minutes to Fettle it Self, and promptly at ten minutes of four o'clock deliberation began. Exactly five minutes thereafter a rap ou tho door burn raonel tho deputies to learn the verdict, agreed upon. ; As the jury tiled into the courtroom the: prisoner turned around in his chair, as did hi3 mother, who sat next to him. Both were pale, and Mr. Durrant seemed on thl verge of collapse. Foreman Warren Dutton rose, wiped hi3 tear dimmed eyes, adjusted his classes and read in a clear volco: "We, tho jury And the defendant, William Ilenry Theodore Durrant, guilty of murder in the flr-st degree." The prisoner made a convulsive atart and half rose a3 if to address tho Court. His mother, with a cry that began iu a muffled shriek and ended in deep sobs, threw her ftrms about his neck and pulled him back. From the densely packed court room came at tho same moment a sound that was thrill ing in the last degree. It wa.s the fierce cry of tho crowd. Women laughed and cried, aud all struggled for a better view of tho prisoner. He sat, pale, but seemingly un moved, while hi-i mother pressed her cheek against hi, with her arms about his neck and wept pitifully. Durrant's father, who had been smoking a cigarette in the corridor pushed his way in and helped comfort tho bOOWllK vrunaon. The Judge quickly restored order" aud an nounce i that on Friday, November 8, sen tence would be passed, aud that on the same date the trial of Durrant for the murder of Minnie. Williams would be set on the calen dar. Tho deputies then began clearing the court room, and, in the wako of the crowd Durrant and his stalwart guardian, filed out. Tho prisoner's pallor had vanished, and he was twirling the end of his small mustache. A sensational incident was the demeauor of the murdered girl's relatives. Her sicter, Maud Laraont, a mero school girl, jumped to her feet when the verdict was announced, beat her Mick gloved hands together and gave a shrill cry of approval. The aunt, Mrs. C. O. Noble, likewise clapped her hands. Briefly stated the prosecution charged that Durrant decoyed JManehe Iamon! into the Emanuel Baptist Church, in Bartlett street, probably assaulted liter, strangled her, stripped hr body and laid it out carefully in the belfry, hid her clothes and school books iu the dark, dusty corners of the loft and steeple, and then helped in the search for tho missing girl. Miss Lamont was ;1 school girl, and attended tho Sunday-school in whic h Durrant was a leading spirii. KIio was en routo from school when a young man joined lior. They were seen in a street car by hr schoolmates, but that wjii the last time she was sen aliv by persons wno knew her. Eater a mau and a girl were seen to entT Emanuel Church. The dead body of Minnie Will iams, another nc'iuaintanee of Durrani, was found in the Emanuel Church library on April 13. 8he bad be.-u mur dered the night before. A search of th church was then made, and in the belfry was found the body of Mis. Lamont. Suspicion pointed to Durraut. as lie was conspicuou" in the church work, was acquainted with the girls and had access to the church. He was arrested, and for several week? the trial has been in progress. Much .circumstantial evidence wa introduced and tho positive evidence was strong. RAM KATAIIDIN REJECTED.

All the cotton factories iu the State are running on full time aud doing all the business their plants will turn out. Other man ufacturers are alike prosperous. "There are two new cotton factories under construction in Greensboro," said Mr. Erwin, "that will cost over $S0o,0oo. We have two already in operation, which the owners are en larging to double tho present capacity iu order to accommodate their trade. Governor Tom Holt is enlarging his large cotton factory at Haw Eiver, a few mih s ea;t of us, on account of growing busines. We have over 300 cotton factories in the State, which is more than any other Stute has. There isagieat d mand for good carpenters in our section. Building operations have been considerably retarded for the want of workmen "The mining interest inNorth Caro lina in attracting many prospectors aud capitalists. We have almost every variety of mineral and precious stones known b geologists. Many of the gold and copper mines that were worked be fore the war are being bought by syndicates and worked with improved machinery with very flattering sac cess." When asked about politics the cap tain replied: "Our people are too busy looking after making an honest living to fool their time away with tlettiug shadows.

Emery, Agriculturist at the North Carolina Experiment Station has issued the following bulletin which is of general interest: Too little attention has been given to this important form of enterprise in this State. It is to bo hoped more interest will be taken in the near future and that the men who look into this industry will take hold of it as they do of corn or tobacco growing and make j it a (success. ! Whoever wishes to investigate co -j operative dairyiug cau have the active j help of this Station. He should prico I apparatus and buildings of several j dealers. I In general every local association should build its own house, if it can nor. more cneapiy adapt some con j venieut building until it gets cows ac4? milk enough to do a good prorltabU. business. It is well within bounds to assure any body of creamery promoters in North Carolina that they can start a creamery ou a scale largo enough to handle all the milk which 'can bo brought to the factory, for from $1000.00 to $15.00.00 The Booner some neat little plants can be established, the better provided they can bo supplied with milk with which to operate. Canvas your neighborhood and get pledges to deliv er a given amount of milk daily and make your business to correspond with what you can get pledged. Do not estimate beyond gallons delivered, and remember to caution your farmer neighbors not tocount over 350 gallons of milK per cow per year, each gallon to weigh 8 2-3 pounds. The X. C.

Section 2,83 of the Code, as amend ed by the Goner 1 Assembly of 1891, provides that "no person hhdll kill ot shoot, trap or n.t any pat ridges quail, doves, robins, larks, mockin? birds or wild turkeyn, between the 15th day of March and the ltt day of November in each year; and the person Booffe,di,' shall be guilty of a misdemear fined not exceeding ton do .t.b 4 each offense." This is the general law, but a num ber of counties have either been en tirely exempted from its provi-ions or special acts passed extending or short ening the time provided in the general law. The counties of Dare, Onslow, Carteret, Jones, Columbus, Clay, Cherokee, Swain and Graham have no law for the protection of birds. Ma con has r law only in regard to wild turkeys, while in Stanly county it is allowed to kill wild turkeys at any time during the year. In the counties of Moor, Wilson, Hyde and Pamlico the law is not applicable to doves or larks, and in Edgecombe it does not apply to doves. In Craven, Duplin and Cumberland counties farmers are allowed to shoot, on their own land, partridges and other birds doing in jury to their crops.

COTTON'S RAPID RECOVERY. Many Reasons That it I Being Held Hack by the Planters. B, G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of trade for last week says: Failures in October thus far reported show liabilities of 111,120,489 against f S20fi,S02 last year and 119,905,404 In 1893. Failures for tho week have been 278 in tho United States against 249 last year and 63 in Canada against 50 last year. The rapid recovery in cotton and the rise in sterling exchange to the point at which the last exports of gold were made have not increased eonlld'-m-e. Whether cotton Ia kept bai-k by j recent planters, a many reason, or by j ulators, makes no practical difference if merchandise imports (for tho past four weeks at New V rk 32 per cent., or TlO.200,000 larg-r thau lat year), so far ex ceed merchandise exports (for the past four 000 larger than Ifcr-t year), as to cause ship ments of gold. Cotton has risen to 9 cents again. Specu lation turns for the moment on the disposi tion of holders to keep b.iek their cotton, which may compel higher prices some say, however large the ultimate supply may be. Receipts are at present very small compared with last year's, and it is Hated that banks here have more money loaned on cotton, to enable holders to k"-p It without marketing, than ever before. Exports and takings id spinners are small, and ptocks abroad an. I here are bo large that consumers may 1 let ter able to wait than borrow from banks. The tendency to r alir.e on a moderate ad vance was :di own on Thursday, though spot price.- remain strong. The larger demand for manufactured pro-du.-ts has ln-1 I prices of cotton goods and even advanced som prints, in ppite of last week- d'-.-iii,e in cotton. At the s Miith general trade among joUrs at most points i.i only lair and in some section' mercantile collections aro slower, with far mers holding th' ir crops. Business at New Orleans at the close of the month Is smaller in volume, as is usual, (ialveston reports very little Texas cotton remaining in pro ducers' hands and re--ipts falling off sharp ly. But general trade has Improved some what at Mcraphi", Atlanta and Augusta, and to a greater extent at Birmingham, where the output of coal and iron is mu'-li larger than heretofore and the number of employes t work correspondingly Increased with the prospects more favorable than for months past. St. Louis jobber- believe next spring's business at the South will bo the heaviest f jr years. HILLS OF ROME TREMHLE. Many Magnificent Palaces and Public Ilulldlngs Damaged.
