A special to tho Wilmington Mcsseni r dated Atlaniic Hotel, Murehoad City, N.

Wiliis and McCain with au iiiip.sii)g array of distinguislitti counsel mi both sidi'8. The trial warr.mt was issued by Justice Allen C.

' 'At this stage of the trial it developed that Justice Dennis was the 8 u -in-law a fact that he had adroitly withheld of the arch conspirator, Uasseli. This precipi tated a lengthy and spirited argument pro and con h tween the counsel, but n suited finally in Dennis withdrawing under heavy fire and MeCain was se eded. The case was tlien opened de novo and pro ceedings liegun. The bar and court 100m was packet' with th large number of de fendants the large number of witnesses and scores of iuteiested spectators. Theiv are twenty-five cases of alleged fraudulent graveyard insurance pending at this trial, with as. many indivi. ud deO-n hints ami with C!. H.

"The thinl day of the sensationil t rial ior ; conspiracy iu life insurance was de voted to proving the physical nnd finan cial condition. of Charles Arthur, one of the alleged victims. If the evident f. r the prosecution is" not rebutted Arthur is proven to have been a pauper nnd almost a living skeleton. Fraud is proved by the evidence . as It stands, but as yet there is no proof of conspiracy. : L. Arendell was put on the stand again this . rcorning. He testified that Cbarh 8 Arthur was a walking skeleton and the mares t to adead man he t ver t-aw alive. The. justice s-iid this did not show conspiracy and further evidence was ruled out. - . . . ,'Capt Charles Springle, of the naptha launch, Sadie, testified that Charles 11. llassel asked hira to send Artuur over to Beaufort in his boat and to tell Arthur that it would be morx v in Iris pocket if he came over to Beanlott . Capt. S.im E. WatTe carried Arthur to B?aut'ort that morning. SprioRle brought him back that night. Cpriugle was in a hurry and put him out at the depot whai I',-leaving him to come up town as lieu lie could. Before Arthur got up town he fell iro n exhaustion 00 the railroad track and was picked up by railroad hands just in time to prevent his btirg run over by the Irain. "J. B. Arendell, a notary public ol Morehead City, said that Arthur tame be fore htni not long before his death and made affidayft at ihe request of the aent of the Northwestern Insurance rotnpany, or Minneapolis, that he had nevir U-en examined for insuiance; that h had never applied for or, authorized any one else to apply ftr insurance on his life and so far as he knew, there was no insuiance on his life.' Furthermore that he felt he was not a fit subject for insurance on his life and it was a Iraud. Dr. A. J. Mclntyre, a 1 rnciieing phy sician ,anl cJruggfet of Morehead City, was called to the stand. He repeated in substance what Mr. Arendell had s.dd regarding the affidavit and stated that he himself signed Arthur's-affidavit in his official capacity as Mayor of Morehead City. While Arthur was here, he snid his doctor was Dr. F. P. Gates who now re sides at Monteo, cp Roanoke Island. Mclntyre had never personally prescribed for Arthur, but had as a matter of charily given him medicine to alleviate his suf fering.' T. D. Webb, of the firm of.T. D. Webb & Bro., the largest firm in More-heatl-City, next teslifie'l. He stated lhat sometime in tue jeur 1894, previous :o Arthur's death, Arthur came to him oue day with a letter from the Toittiweem Life Insurance company, of Minneapolis, and as Arthur could not read he asked Webb to read it for him. The letter scared Arthur terribly, b-: cause he did not know anything about any iu&tiiMnce on his life. The let:er said that the first premium on Arthurs policy for which he had given a note was now due, and aki-d lor an immediate remittance. Aitimr stated to Webb that he had no insurance, bad never applied for any, hud never given them a note, had no inouey and that this notice was the first he had ever heard of any insurance on his life. Webb then look him before Arendell and Melntyie and had hira make tue auidavit re ferred" to. 'John Forlaw, a notary public of Beau fort, was then culled. The proofs ot death in oqe of the Arthur cases were exhibited to him and identified. lie stated that the proofs of death were made' out in the handwriting of Charles K. Hassell, who issued the policy aud that Hassell came lo his bouse, took him iu a buggy and they went out toge'.her to see Mrs. Arthur, t lie widow of Charles Arthur, and asked her to swear to the prooJs. "All the witnesses testified that he was very thin and emaciated and in poor health. "Arendell. Ihe notary public, stated that he weighed him aboat a year before his tleath and that his correct weight was eighty-seven pounds. "It is a matter of record that Arthur was a pauper, aud received $2 a month from the county fund and that be was an object of charity for the ciiiaei.s of More head City and Beaufort. "Perkins, the last man arrested, is May or ot Newport and ex-town constable, of Morehead City. At tha leiuuing of this season Perkins was iu th:r3'e ol the police department o' t!.e Atlantic hotel. "Here and in Beaufort people are d;s cussing the sersatio::al air. sts, bat stem to withhold 'heir opinions until all the evidence has been brrught out.

A world dispatch from Beauft con tains this: "From time t ) lime messengers were sent out to summon otlieis who, while not el formally a'Ciistl, ;;re suspcele I of having been concerned in the alleged con spiiacy. "T. V. Aiken, tlio Mutual Reserve company's representative, says that the evidence aga:u?t the nc used is of the stroue-t character.

"A reputable physician" line said to the Wor'd corrc-poaeient lhat he was ap proached s uie months ao by parties who desired to secure insurance on a sick man, I ut thai wlien heinf irm d them that he would h ive to j;ive a report bas dtipon the facts in the cae they dei ided that they didn't want his report.

SKETCH OF TUF TRANSACTIONS. Tho extended account of the affair given in the New York World represents the fraudulent transactions as having been iu progr ss for eight; years. It say3 that somv of the merchants in the town have been engaged in it and that so remunera tive did it become that tie negroes went into it on their own account and cventn allyj lined foicas with the whito men and that tbos-j engaged became bo'der, were no lon-rer satisfie 1 with small sums even th )Ugh quick profiis and that their greed was the ultim ate cause il" exposure. The rise, progress a'ld present status of the transaction, condensed from ihe World's account is as follows: C.-R, Hassell went into the insurance Inisines 8 there eight y. ais ago, aud afur awhile he and a physician and some mcr chauts Wmed a ring to dolrau l the in sorance compaaha represoiited 'iy him. They insured old, decrepit nnd dying whites of both sexes in many iustauces w.thout the bnwleig..4 of !. pariies in suted, and men and vonn n 05 t 80 years of age were 'insured on the basis of aes ranying from 10 to 15. - It is siid to have h romc a ciunmon occuirince to 8te men hauling policies around tbe town ofTeriii).' to insure per sons in III health free of co-t to be insured, to provide them in ad lition with neces saries of life while alive, with decent burial at death, and allow a vnall sum besides to provide for their families re quirements. It is also alleged lhat another insurance agency was started for the same purpes-. This firm consisted of Levi T. Noe, Sel den l). Delamar and Jacob C. Delamnr. They did bjsines under the firm name of Noe, Delamar & Co. A negress named Ella G. Rountree. who had been r presented in the . policies to be white, died with insurance of 14, 000 upnnjier life. $1,000 of which was in the Mutual Insuiance Fund of New Yoik. That company shifted an invisti gi ti- n of the case and this was the be-yinniti-4 of the revelations. This woman died o'"c msnmption soon after she was insure-1. The Ik ne-ficiarics in htr case were stated to be her iai her and brother. The "father,'' St' phen I. Tuner is a colored Baptist minister and former boat man, well known Iro n having carried the mail an I passengers t and iro between Be.iufort and Morehead for many yens. Neitln r of those represented as the bene ficiaries weie able to carry such heavy in surant e Besid s policies lhat have been collected the World publishes quite a list that are now being curried, wiih the amounts nnd the false representations as lo condition Ol health, age and color lhat were made to secure them. It shows as a pretty Mack list. One policy that was paid was negro named Abe Wigfall. It was $3,000 for the dejilh f his brother who was insured on his death bed eleven days before his decease. A clean apptnring set ol prnol's was furnished the company and the claim paid wiihout question. Tlis examiner in this case was Dr. Ed ward Thomas of New York, who was visiting at Moreluad at the time. Some 01 the telesiMm8 erroneously located him at New Berne, fie did not live here, though he has visited at both Naw Berne and Beaufort more than once. THE HER 4 MI'S COM 1 EXT. On the Startllns Beaufort Insurance Hcnsatiou. The Herald is light when it says that men shoulel not be condemned by public sentiment till they have leen fairly tried. As dark as the casi s may appear, h is un-ju-.t"to create public sentiment against them iM'fore they have an opportunity to defend themselves If found guilty they should be mad'j to suffjr the full penaby of the law regardless of all influence and social slan ling. We trust th d the cl.a ges have been magnified, but if'nol, let all concerned be u a ;e an example of in the endeavor to crush cut such vile corrup tion. Here is what the Ilcralel has to say about it: "Tlie Herald docs not propose to give a verdict before the case is tried. These men are, most of them, life long citizens and have hitherto held the confidence and respect of our people and The Herald does not, propose to join in the hue and cry against them until tney are luriy ami honestly convicted of some crime. "But it has this to say, boldly and fear lessly about the matter that some of the newspaper reporters have b en neither fair nor tiutht'ul to our town in dealing with this case. "For instance the News efc Observer re porter insinuated th tt some'of the best citizens of Beaufort made their money in this buines-; he h aves the impression that it has beL'n a g- ner.tl business here, yet tho truth is that most of the monied men of our town made fortunes by braving the dangerous deep long before the News Observer reporter ever wore pinafores or swaddling clothe?.

Few. it" any structure, ever built for the aid and protection of mariners were ever watched more carelttLy in the beginning of the woikof construction than ia the projected light at Cape Hatteras which is now being striven so cnrnestlv lo estab lish. Though the light is (o be upon the North Caiolina coast, it is not alone, nor even primarily, lor North Carolina's benefit. More vtssels belonging to other Sta'es, to say nothing of the passing for eign vessels would be warned by its bright au l lar piercing beams of the lurking dangers and be enabled lo keep in ways of safety. Col. Crcecy, in his paper, the Eliza beth City Falcon Econo nist has the fal lowing to say of this dangerous coast nnd the past illoits at ( st iblishing the light: "the outer shore of the shoal of Cape Hatteras, nine miles out ot se t. has been the dread of mariners from the earliest ages, and though it was the grave -of the maritime nations, its terrors will be mitigaied by our country, which may be justiy sty Ud tbe "Cjuod Satnaritiin"1 ol natious. J S00 Congress authorized an appro priation of $500,000 to erect a light-house on the outer "Diamond Shal" of Cape Hatteias, aud the contract to build tbe light-house was awarded to Anderson & Barr, of Jersey City, to do the work lor $185,000. After an expenditure of $73,000 they abandoned the job as impractica ble 'The work remained in abatement until the summer ol '93, when Ihe lighthouse board renewed the work and erected a te nporary structure on the shoal. Iron piles were sunk in the sand to a siiffieient depth lo give them holdhig power, and upon these a platform was built fiom which the experiment was conducted. 'Wlten the borings had been completed the temporary structure Was lefi tin the shoal, as it t as of no lurtlier use but it was left in place to determine its power of resistance! to the winter storms. It was badly damaged hut some parts of it wiih stood the hurricanes of-the past year, aud the fact that the frail structure was not entirely destroyed indicated that a strong er structure f similar type might prove sale anil secure. Tlie new idea is that the structure should be built of open pile woik, lighter and not so massive as the structure which failed in 1891. "The lighthouse board will soon renew the attempt to build a lighthouse oi ouler Diamond rfuoal, and they confidently ex pect, with the experience of last summer's work and its withstanding the spjrrn ex perience flf last y inter, to succeed in the Undertaking. A valued contemporary thus describes tiio outer shoal tit Ilat lems; "Outer Diamond Shoal prolably pre sents more difliculties to the lighthouse builder thaa any site upon which tuch a structure has ever been erected. Lying in the open se., nine, miles out from Cape Hatteras, the most dreaded pint on the 6otisr, jt is exposed to the terrific gales which have filled the surrounding sands wih wrecks. Tlie swift currents shift the 8:inds so rapidly that the depth of water at any givon point rarely remains the same for nny considerable period of time. On Cape Hatteras itself there has been a lighthouse for generations; but as the greatest dangers lie far off shore the bea con intended to warn, mariners has often led thorn directly upo the lata! shoals. II it shall be found possible to place a per manent lighthouse upm the shifting sands of the Outer Diamond Shoal there will have been conferred up n the mariners of ihe Atlantic coast a blessing the value of which cannot be reckoned in money.

A very hard rain the hardest we have had for some time struck us Tuesday. Information has reached us that a hail storm did a great deal ol damage in the upper part of the county Sunday. Rev. Dr. Swindell, Mrs. Swindell, nnd Mrs. C. P. Dey were subject to a strange experience last Tuesday.

These sensations lasted lor a full half hour, ami passed away without leaving any sense of d scorn tort. Mr. Matthew P. Guthrie, of Cape Lookout, tells us of an enoimousclam lhat was found near Wreck Point last week by William Hancock. The clam weighed 3 pounds and 6 ounces; Was 7 inches long, 6 inches wide and 4 inches thick. Judg ing lrom the thickness of the shell it was estimated that the clam must have been at least 17 years old. This ii what we wou'd call a good size clam. The finest flavored clams found on our coast are found at Cape Lookout, and they always bring a bigger price than others. baisimj RRtion roR. A Profitable Crop Even for Shipment Broom Factories Easily Estab lished nnd Operated.

There was no tangib e response to Iheir inquwy, we are sorry to say, but we have come! across some facts in the Wilmington Mes senger worth knowing in reference to the raising of the broom corn, nnd whither any immediate results come from it or not we copy it in ihe hope lhat it may bear fniit eventually. The broom crn could l shipretl to factories elsewhero or, better still a factory might be started which would use it right at home. Such a fiwtory would not be a costly affair either to equip or operate, and us for rais ing the corn here is whit the Messenger says of that: "Kx-Congn ssmao C. W. McClammy, of Scotls Hill, Pender county, was in the city and brought with him Several line, stalks of broom corn that, he raise I an his fat m. We were shown the specimen, and it was as fine ns we haye ever seen, being fourteen feet in height, including a heavily developed brush, it wa also shown to an expert in the broom factory here and he pronounced it of very supe rior quality. "Maj. McClammy and Mr. n. E. Bon itz.. of this city, who has a farm in Wayne county, near Gohisboio, are both making experiments in raising brnom corn and theyare highly pleased with the result. They planted ten acres each in broom corn this season, and we are informed that its average heighth is ten feet. "There is great demand for 5he straw of broom corn, and as it sells from $75 to $100 per ton we see no reason why the farmers of North Carolina should m.t make it a profitably crop If properly cultivated nnd cured it can be made to re turn a handsome profit. "Broom coin is grown largely in Can-, ada, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee, Georgia and other S ate?, and it has Is'en demonstrated long ago that the South is peculiarly adapted to its culture. In Can ada, Ohio, Illinois and Iudlaua where it t is largely grown, only one crop can be raised, us the early frosts in the region mentioned cuts off the S'Cnnd growth. In Georgia and other Southern State', how ever, tye have s.-en a splendid second crop cut after the first cr-.p h.xl been harvested. The second crop was m every resp-t as good as the flisi a:.d f. ly fiost is ill- prtu cipul th'ng that w-'Uhl prevent one crop being aa good as the other." NEWS 13 BKlKr.
