VOLUME XXX—NUMBER 8
Hollis Found Guilty of
Manslaughter is Given
The superior court concluded the
trial of criminal cases Tuesday, since
which time the tedious civil processes
have thrown everything into slow
K»ar, so that every stump, every tree,
and every ditch can be described in
detail by * -multitude of wiflneesea.
The jury in the Joseph Hollis case
returned a verdict of guilty of man
slaughter after a short deliberation
Tuesday. The judgment against him
was a fine of SIOO and costs of the
case and a four-months suspended
sentence. , It will be recalled that Hol
lis killed John Keel during an alter
cation between the two in Poplar
Point Township seveial weeks ago.
W. V. Ormond and Mary Hyman,
who were chaiged (with forgery, en
tered a plea of guilty of ah attempt
to defraud. The plea was accepted
and Mary Hyman was sentenced to
jail for 60 days, judgment being sus
pended upon payment of one-half the
costs of the ease. Ormond /was fined
SIOO and charged with the other half
of the coats.
* This case was apparently an at
tempt by Mary plymtn to defradd a
Durham insurance company. Mary
Hymen procured a policy on the life
of her mother, Ada Hyman, who she
claimed lived in the .Indian Woods sec
tion of Beitie County. The policy
carried both a sick and death benefit
clause, and Mary Hyman paid the
weekly installments from the time the
poKcy was issued in the spring of
1926. In the late fall of 1926, she
procured blanks upon which to make
claim and death proof, saying that
her mother had been killed in an au
tomobile wreck and was buried in the
Indian Woods section. Mary then
procured the .services of W. V. Or
mond to fill in the blanks for the un-
dertaker and reoorder of vital statis
tics in Bertie county, and he signed
the .blanks for them.
When the reports of the death went
in, it seemed that suspicion was a
roused, and before paying the S3OO
claim, the company sent investigators
10 Bertie County, and they found that
the Bertie undertaker knew nothing
about such a funeral, nor did he au
thorixe the use of hia name. Neither
did the recorder of vital statistics
that county know anything about the
death of a person by that name. The
name of the recorder of vital statis-
tics who had held the position some
years ago, and who had been gone
for a year or more, was used on the
The insurance company, named the
matter over to the State insurance de
partment, which sent representatives

The case was so plain that the de
fendants waived trial. Ormond ad
mitted that he did all of the work,
but simply at the request of the Hy
man woman, and that he had no In
terest in It whatever, nor did he ex
pect to receive any reward for the
service he did. It was upon this plea

First Sturgeon of Year j
Caught Here Yesterday
The first sturgeon of the season
was caught yesterday by-Furney How-j
ard in a fishing machine on the river|
near here. The sturgeon, however,]
was so small he had no value, being
only about 20 inches long and esti->
mated to weigh about 2 pounds.
The sturgeon was once a gnat com
mercial fish on the Roanoke River, and
ihe fisheries landed many of the big
fellows, weighing as high as 350
pounds each. After the seine fishing I
ended early in May, large numbers
of sturgeon would continue to be
taught through Auguit. The indus
try was destroyed by the lower sound i
aiid inlet fisheries year ago, when they j
practically broke the seed of the
sturgeon fishing with net*.
If the new fish and trame commis
sion will make it unlawful to take
sturgeon from the waters for a num
ber of years, then we may have plen
ty of them.
