L. L. WINDER TO PETITION
Convict In Sensational Case Here Will Not Wait
Upon the Supreme Court's Hearing of Case
on Appeal in February
FRESH WATER AT
$2.50 A GALLON
But Scallop Fishermen May Be
Forced To Be Honest
Three Reasons, Why Life is Gtiod on Roanoke Island
HAMS AND BACO
L. L. Winder, sentenced to
three vears in State's Prison at
the November term of the Su
perior Court in Pasquotank
County and whose case on ap
peal to the Supreme Court is
now pending, will ask Governor
Morrison for a commutation of
sentence. Formal advertise
ment of his petition to the Gov
ernor is published elsewhere in
his newspaper this week.
Winder was convicted on a charge of
h-'v'ms had carnal knowledge of a 13-
v.ir-old girl. A more sensational or
;,ive nauseating 'case probably never
was tried in the criminal courts of this
. ..-.imtv. The case was tried at the ep
teniber term of the Superior Court and
resulted in a mis-trial because ot me
illness of a juror! At the November
trial the case went to x a jury and a
verdict of guilty was returned. Winder
appealed to the Supreme Court and the
cast. on app.eal will be heard early in
February. But "Winder will not wait
for the decision of the Supreme Court
liefore pressing his petition to the Gov
ernor. Winder's petition is not regarded fa
vorably by Hon. J. C. B. Ehinghaus,
Solicitor of the First Judicial District
who prosecuted the casein the Supe
rior Court. It is known that Solicitor
Ehringhaus has refused to sign a pe
nt ion for executive clemency and his
.rtitude toward a commutation of sen
tence was eloquently expressed by him
nt the recent trial. When sentence
was passed upon Winder here in No
vember and the defendant prayed the
Court f give him a fine instead of a
prison sentence, the Solicitor was em
phaue in rejecting the proposal. "I
would consider a fine in this case a
M-vetv upon justice." declared Mr.
Ehringhiius. He stressed the fact that
the purpose of punishment was twofold-
to restrain the criminal himself
md at the same time deter others from
the commission of similar crimes. The
purposes of justice would not be sat
isfied with anything less than a prison
sentence in the Winder case, in the
opinion of the Solicitor.
What facts and what influence Win
,Vr hopes to bring to bear at the Cap
itl are not generally known, but it is
almost certain that 2. commutation , of
sentence would not insure his free
rlom. There is another case against
Winder pending in the Superior Court
h.-re. Winder was tried in the case 91
Ilattie Puckett.'a 13-year-old girl with
whom he was alleged to have illicit
relations. He was to have been tried
on a still more serious charge in which
Irene Woodard, a pretty 15-year-old
Sirl complained that he had attempted
rape upon her. The case involving the
Woodard girl was not pressed when the
State convicted "the defendant in the
first case. Those who know Solicitor
Ehringhaus attitude believe that he
would immediately bring Winder to
nit,! in the Woodard case and press
for another conviction in event that
Winder escaped paying the penalty

NOT ENOUGH TURKEYS

The beginning- of what , may-
develop into, a big meat paekin,
industry . at Elizabeth; City V; was
made this- week 'with; the open
ing of a .small packing plant and '
smokehouse on West Main bt. v

folk -Southern passenger depot, r'
Casper S. Lamb, a native of Bel-v

the superintendent of the plant
and he has associated with him :: i
well known Elizabeth . City

Mr. Lamb says that 'a modest begin-

expect to buy onl, 75,000 , pounds of- ,
pork " tfes i season. " He is offering ;10
cents a pound for dressed -J?ork and
getting, all the pork he can handle at
that - price. '-, . '. ' '" . ' '
Mr. Lamb is an experienced packer
who is expert in the methods of curing

and bacon of the Piney Woods section ,
of Perquiraans j County . famous ; for
their mildness and excellent-flavor.- He
will make, a specialty pf hams and ba- .

make lard, sausage and hogs head , .
cheese. Thf spare ribs, backbones" and
tenderloins, .will be offered to tne local
trade or sold thru other markets.
Mr. Lamb is persuaded that capital
invested in a -complete .slaughterhouse,
packing and refrigerating plant would
not be wisely invested at once. " He .
says-that many packing houses :have
failed on the slaughtering, end of ' it;
the cost of slaughtering live stock ab

ARE EXPENSIVE LENSES
-There are no bargain days
nor substitutes for good eye
glasses. Cheaper materials
can be substituted ' for al
. most anything except a cor
rectly fitted lense. "Cheap"
lenses oftentimes cause trouble of
a more serious nature than the de
fects they are supposed to correct.
Only people who -have been trained
to recognize defects of vision and
to know how to make a proper
"correction are capable of advising
on such an important subject as
lenses. Avoid trouble by consulting
reliable professional people and
'taking their advice. . .
