reason, they say, why the case
should be drawn out over any long
period of time, but, nevertheless,
they will leave Monday prepared to
spend at least a week in the Chester
A dispatch from Chester states
that there will be 200 or 300 wit
nesses. but defense attorneys are of
the opinion that when the case is
called and the evidence starts that
there will hardly be more than 40
or 30 witnesses.
Due to the fact that the defend
ant has lived in Shelby practically
all of his life and is well known to
hundreds of Shelby and Cleveland
county citizens, and also since the
late Mrs. King lived in this county,
near Kings Mountain, and taught
in the Shelby schools before mov
ing to Sharon, scores of county citi
zens will more than likely attend
the hearing, which will also attract
hundreds from York county and
other sections of South Carolina as
the case with its several mysterious
elements has been much aired in
newspapers of the two Carolines.
Editor’s Note: Readers of The
Star will be given full details of the
trial in the news columns of this
paper. Ernest Jackson, York news
paperman. will rover the full hear
ing for The Star and will be assist
ed at times by a staff correspond
