Mr. F. A. Wiley stopped a day in
town last week, passing down from
Asbeville, where he was called in be
' Lalf of his son John, in trouble on
account of having traded for a stolen
watch. The Asbeville Citizen says:
" The case of Wiley, charged with
t the theft of a watch belonging
| to Air. \V. S. Thomas, was tried m
the Inferior Court yesterday. The
evidence pointing to the absolute
iunocence of the accused was so
clear and positive that Judge Moore
did not gi\x* the case to the jurv, but
ordered the discharge of the prison
er. We ire glad of it for his sake
and that of his father. We did not
believe so good a father could have
a son who would dishonor him.
