For some time before the case cam(
up today, the court room was fille<
to standing room, so immense is th(
interest in the trial proceedings, ac
centuated by the fact of the unusua
turn the case has taken. Among th
interested spectators are Dr. Williari

Clinton, Mr. H. H. Evans, brother-in
law of the defendant, and a number o
ladies from Clinton and this city, al
of whom occupy seats within the bar
All the colored visitors were request
ed to retire from the court room it
order to give room to the great assem
bly of whites.
One is impressed with the pervad
ing seriousness and the all-absorbin6
gravity of the trial, which was lack
ing to some extent during the firs
trial. The indications, at this stage o
the trial, are that the defense wil
make out a somewhat stronger cas
than it did last week.
