said yesterday they know nothing of
reports of a proposed electrification
of the Norfolk Southern Hallway,

making it,an important link in some
vast transportation system that
would practically cover this section.
An official of .the Norfolk South
ern Railway here, who has had long
service with the line, was asked of
the report. He said all he know of
the proposal was what he had heard
in the newspapers. He said that,
from time to time during the past
several years, he had heard gossip
and rumors to tho effect that the
Southern Power Company, the co
called Duke interests, was consider
ing making the rond an electric line,
but he knew notfling definite gbout
The Raleigh dispatches intimated
that the Duke interests might be in
tending some development of this
line, if control could be acquired,
which would have a relation to the
proposed construction of an exten

Lee Parsons Davis, counsel for Mrs.
Rhinelander, and who introduced the
"mystery letter" last week, made a
motion for declaration of mistrial when j
court reopened. The motion was de
■ nied by Justice Morschauser.
Mr. Mills in his statement had in
dicated that the lefters, the contents
of which had beeu guarded carefully,
dealt with Rhinelander’s personal
character. He charged that their in
troduction was an attempt to "be
smirch Rhinelander's character.”
Mr. Mills first read the transcript
of tile cross examination last week
immediately preceding the presenta
tion of the two “mystery” letters. He
said that the method of questioning
was deliberate, and its intent to force
his client to withdraw. The letters
had so shocked him. he admitted, that
lie had lost all idea of tile proper
method of procecdure last week.
While ill-. Mills was making his
remarks Mr. Davis arose and said
1 “This is a deliberate attempt to
bring about a mistrial."
After a lively argument, finally set -
1 tied by Justice Morschauser Mr. Mills
said "We proceed with the trial."
