Bill Ormond, or were you crazy?”
was Clyde lloey’s first question.
“I think that is a (mention for
someone else to answer.”
Hoey attempted to get the witness
_ to say he never intended to plead in
sanity and Oole said he hftd nothing
to do with his defense.
—-•©Mn’t you go to Ormond's Mff
from the rear?”
Cole insisted he fired after he got
to the car.
The witness test’fied that so far as
he knew Ormond had not seen him or
his daughter or communicated with
them since the agreement.
The question of Cole's sanity ngain
wns broached, and the witness said he
believed he was sane now.
The defense took its exception when
tlie state asked Cole if he had not
heard witnesses testify yesterday that
he had appeared his usual self during
the months preceding the shooting.
C Cole said the witnesses were not in
timate friends, only ncqtiaintanoes.
"Did you mean the letter you wrote
"I meant to bluff him.”
The letter begnn "You damnable,

to shoot Ormond "full of lead” if he

"Do you mean yon meant two

"I meant to bluff h : m.”
"Do -you think Bill Ormond could
know which part you meant?"
Cole said he supposed he couldn't.
The witness wns becoming nervous
under the rapid fire of questions.

letter frotn the Rev. Mr. Ormond so

J had been normal.”
Oimond’s war record came to the
fore in Hoey’s question about a letter
from Cole to W. N. Everett, Secretary
of State. April 20, 1023, asking him
to help Ormond.
“Bill is a good fellow,” the letter
"There is not much force to Bill,
and almost everything else but killed.'’
"He was everything but killed in
the war. and you killed him?” "Yes.”
Cole was asked if he hadn't known
Ormond was deaf in the right ear
more than in the left. (Cole in shoot
ing Ormond approached from the
right side). ,
Mr. Hoey was attacking every de
tail of Cole's testimony. The witness'
was nervous, and objections of she
defense counsel were frequent.
Mr. Hoey drew from the witness ev
ery answer that might tend to show
Cole a mnn of the most decided opin
ion. with a long practice of doing any
thing he wanted to do.
“Didn’t your attorneys forbid you
to go to Raleigh with them?”
"They Mid me not to go.”

“You took their advice when you
wanted to, and when yoif didn't, you

The cross examination was ended at

On cross examination Miss BcLeod
said she was as anxious to have Cole
acquitted as she would her father.
IV. C. Douglas tried to get the wit- ‘

declared James McQueen, of Max

with W. W. Orinop4 in referring to
the statement of J. A. Lockhart, of
the defense counsel for W. B. Cole,
that Ormond had never been witbin

McQueen declared that he and Or

that Ornlbnd was at the front in
France for four or five months. He

METHODISTS SEEK TO SEE
IF NEW YORK IS MENACE
If New York Is a Frankenstein Then
Action Will Be Taken.
Washington, Oct. 2.—Congress may
be asked to abolish New York. The
JSoard of Temperance, Prohibition and
Public Moral* of the Methodist Epis
copal Church, which 'had a large part
in the elimination of the saloon, is
conducting an investigation with a
view to determine* whether or not
“New York is a menace?'* Once it
is settled, if the answer i*> in the af
firmative. then some move to improve
conditions will be made.
“The West wants to know if New
York is a menace?” the Methodist
board asks. “Throughout a great
part of the territory of the United
States the people are asking whether
or not they have created a Franken
stein in building the* gigantic city of
which they are so proud.
“The whole country has assailed
