Richmond County Court House,
Rockingham. Oct. 5.—C4 I ) —The pros
ecution of \Y. It. Cole, on trinl for
the slaying of W. W. Ormond, won a
temporary victory today When .tudge
Finley excluded tiie testimony of R.
R. Simmons until after lie has pre
pared a decision dealing with the
Simmons' testimony concerns re
marks alleged to have been made by
Ormond about Miss Elizabeth Cole,
daughter of the manufacturer on
Richmond Comity Court House.
Riekingham. (let. — (A> ) —The de
fense of W. It. Cole shouldered to
day the double burden of continuing
the introduction of evidence in sup
port of pleas that the wealthy cotton
manufacturer killed \V. W. Ormond
while insane and in self-defense.

*■ To establish their contention
Ormond promiseously slandered My
Elizabeth Cole, the defense called
It. Simmons. The State objected and.
the jury was excused while counsel 1 ,
argued the admissibility of Simmons'
t*'“i imon y.
—*X 1. foOley presented the 'States'
contention that the virtue of Mias
Elizabeth Cole is not at issue, and
that the State repeatedly had declined
to question her character. W. B.
Cole is being tried for murder, 'he
said, and the woman's virginity is of
He then attacked the defense plea
"Cole testified on oath that he re
membered the minutest details in the
killing of Ormond. He testified on
oath that he is sam' today. Ndw lie
pleads transitory insanity which we
understand ydfir Honor has ruled I
against. He is sane today and has
testified he would kill Ormond today
under the same circumstances. How
could he have been insane?”
Judge Finley interrupted to say
that fie had allowed this character
of testimony to show the effect on
Cole's mind, that the court was pro
ceeding with t'lie understanding that
Cole's plea was sanity, call it what
he will. He lias ruled against emo
tional insanity, moral insanity, and
Clyde Hoey also expressed the
State’s contention that any remark
not communicated to ('ole could not
have affected his ntind.
The defense fought for the evidence
in support of its plea of “transitory
insanity" and based its request for
Simmons' testimony on four points:
"That it showed the malice of Or
mond : thfit it would corroborate Fred
Bynum and other witnesses who tes
tified they had communicated slander
ous remarks of Ormond: the defense
contended in tiie nliird place that the
evidence, would tend to reduce the of
fense from murder to manslaughter;
that it would show the recklessness of
Judge Finley first ruled that the
evidence might go to the jury as tend
ing to show the malice of Ormond
as interpreted by Cole from -similar
remarks communicated to him. The
State charged the defense with bring
ing the question of Miss Cole’s Vir
ginity to becloud tiie jury.

Jonathan Daniels has the following!
in tiie Raleigh News and Observer: j
The State is not trying the virtue of >
Elizabeth Cole but she lias branded
her dead sweetheart a liar for his let
ter that they lived together, as man
and wife for over a year. The de
fense claims that Cole was driven in
to insantiy by this "grossest slander."
The State may be forced into present
ing evidence in an attempt to show
that Ormond wrote not slander but the
Interest in further developments of
the trial centers around the question
as to whether Elizabeth Cole's letters
will bear out her testimony or show
that Bill Ormond wrote the truth.
Counsel for the defense do not
know the 'contents of tlib letters from
Elizabeth Cole to her former sweet
heart except in so far ns the girl has
told them from memory. The State
has more than a score of letters writ
ten to Ormond by Elizabeth Cole and
identified by her when she testified
Today while judge and jury and at
torneys rested over the Sabbath, gos
sip about the letters was rife here.
Gossip declares that the letters are
full of dynamite.
When the 'letters of Ormond were
introduced in evidence last week the
State warned the defense that it did
not wish to attack the virtue of Miss
Ormond in his letter charged Miss
Cole with telling her father one thing
and him another. The letters are ex
pected to show whether Bill Ormond
spoke the truth.
The defense has intimated in open
court that since the homicide Miss
Cole has been examined by three doc
tors in order to determine her virtue.
Since the beginning of the trial on
Wednesday, the State has presented
three witnesses to the actual homi
cide all of whom have testified* that
Ormond was lounging in an uncon

fied that Ormond was lazily smoking
I 1 a cigarette when Cole killed him.
The defense has presented evidence
to show that a pbtfol was found in a
I saddlebag on the door of Ormond's
car shortly after the shooting.
Cole film testified tlmt Ormond was
reaching for his gun to shoot him
when he killed Ormond.
“I shot him to protect my family
and myself,” Cole stated. "I am not
sorry for it." Cole's version of the
homicide has not yet been corroborated
by any other witness.
I Cole lias also testified that follow
ing the receipt of Ormond's "slander
| letter" on February Id, he was in a
, state of physical and nervous collapse

removed from tire flapper type. She
has the look of a woman abundantly
able to take care of herself.
Cole has been deseribed by veteran
lawyers as the calmest man they ev
er saw on trial for his life. Only once
during the whole trial has he shown
any emotion. For the rest of the time
he has remained with inscrutable
