IH THE SHADOW - OF THE CHAIR Casey Murder Trial Drawing to a Close. 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 easily.be 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 seerato.pay but little attention to the proceedings.

Abrjer Kilpatrick, colored, said that he was living on Mr. , Whilty's pramue at the time of his death. Told of a vis it Mr. Whitty made to Kinston.
