4Chapter in Famous Case.
A Tuesday special to the Charlotte
Observer from Elizabeth City, N. C.,
says:
"The grand jury has found a true bill
against James Wilcox. The report was
:iade at 12:15 o'clock Tuesday after
coon. The jurors came into the court
room escorted by an officer and with
-all the dignity and solemnity due the
occasion turned over the bill of indict
:ment to Judge Jones. In handIng the
document to the judge, the foreman
'said: 'This is what we find.' "
The court ordered the prisoner
'brought into court after donner at 2
o'clock. so that he might be arraigned.
'The order was oboyed and at the hour
settJame Wilcox, accompanied by his
father ,and Deputy Sheriff Reed
'marched into the bar. The court house
-was well filled with people and every
-eye turne d to gaze upon the prisoner.
Wilcox is a very ordinary-looking,
compactly-built man of about 28 years.
'Ps shoulders are broad for a man of
'his size, and his head is large and is
the rost striking part of his person. II

testless. He was carefully, but plainl3

Copk
Elizabeth City, Special to Charlctte
Observer.-The Wilcox trial is well
under way. The jurors have been se
lected and the witnesses are being
hear d. The defense has done well in
choosing the jurymen. Nine of the
twelve areY elligent-looking young
men. Several of them seem to be of the
same social position as the prisoner.
The negroes,. two of them, are of the
ante-bellum type, each being between
50 and 60 years old. They are honest,
good-looking, full-blooded Africans.
Pendleton Bright, the twelfth juror,
does not appear to be a man of much
intelligence. He is young and innocent
looking. The jury is in charge of Dep
uty Sheriff L. J. Pritchard.
.The court house was well filled at an
early hour Thursday. Many women
were within the bar. The crowd was
good humored. Dr. I. Fearing, coroner
of the county, was the first witness
called. He said: "I am a graduate of
the Colloge of Physicians and Surgeons
of Baltimore. Have been coroner three
years and have held two post-mortem
examinations. One was held on the
body of Miss Nellie Cropsey just after
Christman day, on the 27th of Decem
ber.
"I found the body in Pasquotank:
river 50 yards from the Cropsey resi
dence, about 25 yards to the right of
the house, looking to the river. The
body had been tied down by Mr. Still
man, the fisherman who found it. it
was carried to a little outhouse near
. the river. Drs. J. E. Wood, O. McMullan
and myself held the autopsy. it was be
gun after the body had been out of the
water an hour. The two doctors, myself
and six jurors were present. We first
examined the clothing to see if there
were any marks of violence. The skirt
was of dark goods and the waist red.
She wore a slipper on one foot, the
right, and nothing but a stocking on
the other. I found the clothing In fair
condition. There were -no torn places.
The fingers were partially drawn and
the limbs were limp. I did not examine
the finger nails. While in te wttbJ

was normal. The condition of the .hy
men and the womb indicated that she
was a pure woman. We found the in
testines and stomach normal. The heart
was empty on both sides. We cut off a
piece of the right lung and found that
on being squeezed it- emitted a small
amount of frothy mucous. Nothing was
found in the pleura.
"The neck was all right except a
mark or depression caused by the col
lar. We examined the head and noticed
that It was a little more swollen on the
left than on the right side. We quit
there, but after going up town and see
ing the solicitor we went back and held
an autopsy of the head. Then we made
an Incision around the head, beginning
on the right side, and removed the
scalp. The skull was left bare. As we
cut through the left temple we saw a
swelling or contusion. We found In the
swollen place, which was about 2x2
inches in size, a tablespoonful of clot
ted blood. The membrane over the bone
was c6lored dark blue. The condition
there was brought about by a blow."
The defense objected to the question
Ithat brought out the last assertion e.nd
the court ruled that it was competent;
that the witness was a medical expert.
The defense entered an exception but
the court stood firm and the examina
tion rontinued.
The witness continued: "The blow
was given by some round, padded in-.
strument. Such a blow would produce
unonsciousness which would likely
last half an hour.
"The absence of water in the stom
ach. lungs and the pleural cavities
would iricate that death was not
caused by drowning. If MIiss Cropsey
had got in the water al.ive and con
scious and drowned,: the water would
have been in these. Along with the
water would have been digested or un
digested food in the stomach and blood
and froth in the lungs. If I had foun-i
these conditions I would have said that
she went in the water conscious."

St. Paul, Special.-North Dakota
nd the Canadian Northwest have ex
erienced the worst snow storm In
iany years and railroad traffic is
ractically paralyzed. ' The Northern
pacific and Great Northern Jhave not
ioved a wheel for nearly 36 hours in
he blizzard-stricken district, and
ave abandoned all .efforts to do so
ntil the fury of the storm shall
bate. The high winds has piled the
now in the iotntains, and packed it
a solid masses, many deep cuts being
ntirely filled. The temperature has
ee radual- falling and is now at
0 below the ero mark. Not a trans
Dntinental train has arrived at St.
aul since Friday, and none is ex
ected for several days. The North
rn Pacific reports its westbound coast
-ains which left St. Paul Saturday
torning, tied up at Fargo, the road
eycnd there being blocked.
gvery effort is being made by the
)ad to keep its passengers who are ?
iow-bound warm and well fed, and
>r this reason trains are being held
t stations where the accommodations
re good, rather than attempt to get a
iem through with a possibility of be
ig tied up between stations. The
altey division of the Northern Pa
fic between Frankfort and Winni
,g is entirely abandoned. No trains
ave attempted -to run since Friday
ght and exact conditions. on this di
sion are not known by the general J
cers here, as. the telegraph wires
precede - ur

The situation on the Great North- t
,n is equally as bad. The line is tied t
p entirely between Grand Forks and
Tilliston, N. .D, a distance of about l
5 miles, and all wires have been lost
eyond Fargo. All communication
ith western Dakota and Montana
ints has been lost. Su fierce has 1
een the storm that it has been inad
lsable to attempt to re-open the road <
ntil it abates. Reports received at I
he general offices indicate that the
ale has somewhat subsided, but that
bre snow still continues to fall. The
ranch of the Great Northern runn
ng to Winnipeg is also tied up. No
rains have abeen started northward
ince Friday night, and those that
rere -caught out en the road by the
torm bbave been held at the stations
ear the border.
Winnipeg Is reported to be entirely
at off from railroad communication
'ith the outside world. The Canadian
acific trans-continental trains are3
sow-bound somnewhere west of there.]
nd no prospect of relief is yet in
ight.
The storm started on Friday, being
receded by a light rainfall and ac
ompanied -by high winds. The rain
oon turned to sleet and.then -to snow
.nd this has fa,llen without cessation
or more than 36 hours.. The terrific
