Casey Murder Trial Drawing to a
Yesterday's Pro-
-' I ceediogs.
- Witness after wintess was placed on
the stand yesterday by the defense in
the case of the State vs Burrili and'
Leona Casey, now being tried for their
lives in Craven county Superior Court
for the alleged poisoning of Mr. Joseph
Whitty, in an effort to tear down the
damaging evidence . piled i up against
them by the State during the first part
of the trial. Whether they succeeded
In impressing the jury with their ar
guments is a matter of speculation and
remains' to be seen, but without any
doubt, much f the evidence, if it is to
be believed, at least frees Burrili Casey
from any complicity in the poisoning of
Mr. Joseph Whitty. This sensational
trial is now nearing a close and it id
more than probable that the defendants
Burrili and Leona Casey, will know by
tomorrow night whether they are to be
turned loose from the custody of the
sheriff or are to be sent on i o t he State
pennitentiary, to be confined in the
death cell until they shall be carried
out some bright morning within the
next few weeks and take their seats in
the death dealing chair, and have the
life which God endowed them with ta
ken away and reiurnsd to it Maker.
It can discerned ihU the
suspense which they have been in, e9
pecially during the past few diya, is
leaving its trace upon the two Ctseys
During the first day or two of the trial,
their cheerfulness was very noticeable
and caused considerab'e comomnt from
those who saw them.' Now, howeve
they sit in thoir seats with listless air
ana but little attention to
the proceedings. Occasionally wheaj
their attorneys question them they 'seem
to awake from the lethargy in which
they seem to be and for a few minutes
pay attention to whatever i tranipir
ing at that time.
Mr. S. C. Coward, father of Leona
Casey, was the first; witness placed on
the stand yesterday. morning. -The gist
of his' testimony was In ferifda to the
habits of the , deceased, Mr. Jowph
Whitty, stating t h at he had often t
ken different kinds of medicir.e and
that he had seen him frequently take
little whiteUblets.
E. B. Hartley, was then placed on

with Mr. Whitty and he told him that
he waa dying and anted him to con
tinue with the crop. Upon crow ex
amination, said Mr. Whitty died in.
great agony. . ..' .
Mr. J, M. Elder, wbo lived near the
Whitty home, stated that on the night
previous to the death of Mr. Whitty,
Burrili ctsey stayed st bis home. Told
of Mr. Whitty 'sjllness. Went over to
tha Whitty home on the morning the de
ceased died, said Mr. Whitty Wks suf
fering very much. Had never te n any
paris green around the house. Tne cross
examination of this witness was rigid
and brought out the fact that he had
been run out of that neighborhood fr
endeavoring to marry a white girl to a
negro man whom he had staying at his
home. -. . .
J. C. Casey was placed on the stand
and stated th it prior to B jrrill's ma--riage
he stayed at his home, had never

ending June 30th, 191', is a narrative
of figures showingtacts hat are full of
interest proving both the growth and
prosperous condition of this great rail
way system, but also that the sections
through which the road passes have
shared in development and growth.,,:
The report Bhows that the business of
the company is expanding. In the in
come statement it is shown that , the
company operates 7,041.95 miles of road
and that the grots operating revenues
for the year ending June 30, 1911, were
$G0 345.062,64 as against
ror tne previous twelve months, an in
crease in revenues of $3,050,554 30; the
total operating expends increasing
from $38,635,745 94 to $40,926,790.08.
With deductions and the interest on

amounting to $11,124,856.76, a against

ing to $6dO,COd, or a total of $1,200,000
in the period as against nothing paid

The dividends paid this year are the
first since the condition) a-osa which
culminated in the financial panic of 1907
and the subsq lent business deprewioi
wlncti brotigit their suspension, is stat
ed by i resident Finley who goes on to
sfiy that the financial condition of the

such action entirely consjstent with a
sound and conservative Dolicv" that
this was due the expectation of the
holders of preferred stojk, and that
with a continuance of 'favorable con
ditions the rate of divideud can be in
creased u itil the full dividend can be
properly paid.
The industrial development contigu
ous to the Southern include ! the com
pletion of 379 industrial plants aidd
