THE CONCORD DAILY TRIBUNE
Mrs. Cole Believes That j
Husband Had Been Crazy
Jonathan Daniels, in Raieign News
and Observer. j
Rockingham, Oct. 5. —Mrs. W. B.
Cole lifted the trial of her husband
for the murder of W. W. Ormond to
something lofty today, when she took
the witness stand in the Richmond
county Superior court to testify to
the mental condition of her husband
during the months preeeemng the
kit.ing nnd after he received the So
called “slander letter” from Ormond.
| Mru. Cole presented no remhrkable
! evidence but she did give to her hus
band and her home an air of nobility, j
Her -presence and her manner gave to
the jury of twelve substantial Union
county men the spirit of a bomei
filled with love and happiness. She
made her Rtory of sorrow in the j
hi me a picture of almost epic •
tragedy. The testimony of her hus
band and daughter was more'
dynamic and more sensational. Mrs.
Cole's story was beautiful. She iP
untouched by the stigma of the
killing but the agony of it seemJ to
have touched her most of all.
Mrs. Cole testimony came at the
close of a day on which many de
fense witnesses testified to the poor
physical and mental condition of ,
Cole and to tile presence of a pistol
on the seat of Ormond's l-'ord car a i
half hour before the homicide. Other
witueeses testified to the good char
acter of Cole and Miss Cole and ,
other defense witness.
Today, Judge Finley began to 1
rule against, the pre-entatioii of cer
tain evidence which the defense has 1
been introducing in the case. Until
today, Judge Finley has allowed wide
range to the defense in introducing
evidence under the plea of insanity on
the grounds that it. tended to show
the mental condition of Cole. He
excluded evidence of uncommuMcated
slander, alleged to have been made by 1
Ormond against Miss Cole. He also i
formally declared in open court that.'
the defense must prove a mental
disease and not brainstorm under the
"transitory insanity” plea. |
Saw Pistol in Car. i
The defense presented a surprise :
today when C. C. Shores, State auto- '
mobile inspector, testified that he
saw a pistol on the seat of Ormond's 1
Ford half an hour before the homi- '
ride was committed. His testimony 1
was corroborated by three persons
to whom he told what he saw soon i
after the homicide. i
A. L. Brooks, of the defense coun
sel, during the debate on the ad- i
mission of evidence at the morning
session dee'a ml that it was foolislr 1
for the State to contend that the 1
virginity of Miss Elizabeth Cole, one l
time sweetheart of the dead man,
wafi not on trial. He declared , that i
The defense was not relying on. pnj 1
unwritten law but that every man
in North Carolina knows that when
a man makes such charges he takes
ife in his own hands. »e
"The defense is attempting -to
cloud the issue.” declared IV. C. :
Douglass, of the private prosecution,
"and to throw this man's daughter
in the breach for the purpose ot af
fecting the jury. What in the wojfld
has Miss Cole's virtue or non virtue
got to do with the guilt or innocence
of* her father? If Cole comes into
court and admits he shot Ormond
because he s andered his daughter,
he is guilty of murder in the fltet
degree and every lawyer knows it."
The jury was sent out. by Judge
Finley during the argument.
Mrs. Cole Takes Stand.
Mrs. Cole took the stand late in
"I have never seen a man who
loved his wife and children as my
husband loved his,” she said. "He
was very affectionate very much in
terested in the details around the
nouse alw-ays at home when not at
his work and most affectionate man
I’ve ever knowm”
Describing Cole's relationship with
their daughter, she said:
“They Were just like pals, I don’t
know a better word.” She spoke
ca.mly and in a clear voice.
J. A, Lockhart, of the defense
counsel, asked her about the changes
she observed in him after her hus
band received the “slander letter" on
their twenty-fifth wedding nnmver
“He was different and listless,”
she said. “He barmy took any part
in the conversation around the fire
side which was very unusual.'’
She told of his lack of interest, in
their children and in friends who
came to call. She related how sick
he whs when he returned from the
trip to Raleigh where he went with
Fred Bynum, his attorney, and J. W.
Jenkins, the Hannah Picket Mills
superintendent, in an effort to se
cure settlement from Ormond after
the receipt of the “slander letter.”
She said he would not eat nnd could
not sleep. She said he was sick Bill
night. In the morning she slipped ,
downstairs and called‘the doctor but
when be came Cole said, "Doe it's
just my wifes imagination.”
Did Not Know About Letter. ,
Lockhart asked her if she knew
of the letter which was troubling
“No, sir. I never dreamed of any
thing wrong.” she said. '
She to!d of Cole’s demeanor on the
first Sunday in May when Ormond
was in Rockingham. She said be
would not go to church and kept
lliiabetb Cole at home with him. At
dinner, he excused himself without
eating gnd afterwards when they
left the table they found him “lying,
in the living room as white as a dead
She declared that be was “all ti>
"I’ve seen him sit and stare add
stare and stare until I'd go put my
hands over his eyes and say ‘come
1 back. Where are you?’ ” she de
She said that he loat his great love
' of humor and his interest in bis
friends, and his home and his ehll-
I dren. She declared that be was al
ii ways listless and would sit staring
.land fuiet about the “fireside in the
| "Mrs. Cole have you formed an- 1
opinion satisfactory to yourself as i
to his mental condition? asked Mr. j
"I certainly have and I have stated
it to my nearest neighbors and my j
closest friends" Mrs. Cole declared.
The State obpected and the objection
was .sustained. The defense entered
“Da you think h would know
right from wrong?” asked Lockhart.
| "1 couldn't toil you whether Mr.
Cole knew right from wrong” she
| The defense repeated its question
, about her opinion of Cole's mental'
j condition and Judge Finley over
i ruled the State's objection,
j "I though dad was crazy and 1
told my neighbor and sister so,” Mrs.
Cole declared. "It was early in the
spring when I told Mrs. M. B. Leah,
my closest friend, I diaid “Corine, I
believe Dad's crazy." Mrs. cote's
voice broke but she quickly recovered
Ormond Well Trented.
She declared that Ormond had
often been in their home and that
"I don't know how we could have
treated hifn any better."
She also testified about the occa
sion when Ormond came to Rocking
during the past summer and drove
tip and down in front of the Cole
home blowing bis horn.
"I knew Mr. Ormond had repeat
edly driven past .the house blowing
his horn or siren." she said. "1
knew no other horn like it in town.
I suppose he drove by fifteen times
I didn't count.”
Lockhart turned the witness over
to the State for cross-examination.
Larry Moore, of the private prose
cution suggested that it was time for
adjournment and that the cross
examination go over until tomorrow.
Dr. A. C. Everett, Cole's family
physician, testified to Cole's mental
condition prior to the homicide and
also corroborated Cole's story of the
homicide by repenting a conversa
tion with Cole immediately after he
killed Ormond. He said he was railed
to attend Ormond but that Dr. C.
O. Bristow reached the scene tits:.
Then he went with Cole to ad
minister to Mrs. Cole.
“My wife's going to hear about
this and be terribly shocked;" he
said Cole told him.
Dr. Everett stated he observed
Cole during the months previous to
the homicide. He said that Cole lost
tlc-h. was nervous, couldn’t sleep
or cat. He said his skin got bad. He
also said Cole, developed nervous
habits of pulling his arm and run
ning his hnndt through his hair. Dr.
Everett told him that he saw Or
mond once in Rockingham and mat
he felt as if the sidewalk was going
to open and swallow 'him up. He
said Cole a.so told him that every
time he saw a Ford he thought it
“A great many things would cause
temporary derangement,” Dr. Everett
said. “A great many drugs will cause l
it and a great deal of trouble might
cause it. It might last several
months or a day or only a few
Dr. Everett said Cole told him im
mediate.}- after the homicide that he
killed Ormond because he had re-
Iceived a very s.anderous letter nnd
a threatening letter and that Or
mond had made slandering remarks.
Under cross examination by Clyde
Douglass, of the private prosecution,
he admitted that Cole semed to be
rational when he was in the doctor's
office on the afternoon of the killing
to have an ingrowing toe nail dress
Dr. Everett declared that he knew
there could be temporary insanity
without a disease of the brain. He
admitted that the accepted definition
of insanity means a diseased state of
the brain, and that a man who has a
disease of the brain has some de
generation of rhe brain celts. He de
clared, • however, that a'drunken man
may he temporari.y insane and also
that temporary insanity may be
brought on by such drugs as mor
phine and cocaine.
"This man had enough trouble,” he
began but he was stopped by the
State's objections. Again he said
that Cole was "not, responsible for
his acts" before an objection could
L. D. Robinson of IVadesboro, tor
mer Congressman from the Seventh
Congressional district, testified to the
good character of Cole, Miss Coif and
• T. F. Caudle, Wadesboro attorney,
testified to the good character of
Cole and Shore but admitted on
erowt examination that his law firm
j bad been asked to appear for the de
| sense in the event that the jury came
from Anson county.
Julian, president of rhe Inde
pendence Trust Company and his
brother, J. I*. Little, Charlotte con
tractor who constructed tho new
courthouse, testified to the good char
acter of Cole. They admitted a dis
taint relationship to Mrs. Cole.
Rev. J. A. McQueen, pastor of the
Rockingham Presbyterian church,
testified to tho good character of Cole
and Miw Cole.
Crowds which have packed the
courthouse during the trial fell off
considerably at Hie morning session
: today but again this afternoon the
rourtroom was crowded to the doors.
Among the apedtators today was
’ “Cyclone McLendon, Well known
evangelist, who came ovbr to hear
