The colored man Walter Scott, alias
John Smith, pleaded not guilty yester?
day In the Hustings Court to the charge
of murdering Mr. Charles Wyatt, of
this olty. on tho morning of the 3d
day of August last.
He was brought Into court, where a
large number of people had gathered
to witness the proceedings, securely
ironed and In charge of Deputy Sheriff
Abbott and Detective West, of Norfolk,
who. with Detective Sergeant lleppel.
have played an Important part in. tho
capture of Cotton.
He sat In the box and quietly looked
about, seemingly at his euae, and In no
wise appearing to appreciate the se?
riousness of tho uosltlon which, he
Counsel for the nrlsoner, Messrs.
W. H. Parker and L. C. Phillips, as
soon as court opened, demurred to the
Indictment on the ground that It con?
tained two separate and distinct
charges, and the policy of the criminal
law being In direct oppcsll'.on to dupli?
city, the Indictment was repugnant to
Justice and right and should be
quashed. Colonel K, R. Grlflln argued
the motion for the Stale In opposition
to defendant's counsel, and the court
overruled the motion to quash, to which
exceptions were taken.
The Jury was then called, sixteen
having been summoned, out of which
twelve were secured?Messrs. Carroll
Bennett. W. Otis Beaton. John W.
Beaton nnd Leroy M. Robblns having
express decided opinions.
Other Jurors were summoned nnd the
necessary panel of sixteen was gotten,
ns follows: L. C. Long. C. C. Bllisoly.
Charles F. Billsoly, U. B. Bllisoly, J- J.
Murphy, Joseph Loeb, William Ridley,
Clarence Moore, .lames McLaughlin, E.
L. Johnson, George Lomor, Joseph M.
Hatten, J. Edward King, Arthur Y.
Thomas, Eugene Brinkley, George W.
Mooney. These Jurors were stricken
off: L. C. Long, II. B. Bllisoly, Joseph
Loch, Josonh M. Hatton. The others
who were examined were MessrB- Wil?
liam Hodges, H. H. Myrick, U. L. Enst
?wood. Edgar Smith and H. 13. Shannon.
The first named gentleman proved to
he a member of the Portsmouth Hook
and I-addcr Company and the remain?
der of the number had opinions, which
they thought were too well fixed to
allow them to sit on this Jury, so they
were also excused.
The Jury to decide the fate of Walter
Cotton, therefore, will be: C. C. Bnlley,
C. F. Bllisoly, J. J. Murphy, William
Ridley. Clarence Moore. James Mc?
Laughlin. E- L. Johnson..George La mar,
J. Edward King, Arthur G. Thomas,
Eugene Brinkley nnd George Mooney.
The witnesses for and against the ac?
cused were then sworn and the exami?
nation of them began.
Mrs. Mary Virginia Wyatt, widow of I
the murdered man, was the first wit-1
ness called. She was calm and compos?
ed, and in a clear voice told the Jury
what she knew of the killing. She told
how she found her husband weltering
in his own blood, and identified posi?
tively an iron coupling pin, shown lit
court as the one found in the store at
the time of tho murder. She could not
Identify Cotton, she only seeing a man
standing in the door-wny of her resl
denco on the morning of the murder,
?with his back to her In a stooping po?
sition. She did not sec his face. The
part of her testimony in reference to
seeing her husband "strangling with
his own blood" being very touching.
8he says the crime was committed be?
tween 3 and 4 o'clock, nearer 4 o'clock.
She also gavo a detailed account of thol
situation of the bouse and how the man |
gained entrance thereto.
SATS IT WAS A NEGRO.
She was asked by Mr. Chas. T. Bland,
who is assisting in the prosecution, the
question as to what kind of looking man
it was she saw In her house that morn?
ing. Objections were made by counsel
on the other side, and tho objections
?wore sustained by tho court. But In a
few minutes afterwards Judge Watts
asked Mrs. Wyatt If it was a white man
or a- negro she saw, and she replyecl:
"A negro, I am sure."
Dr. Gray Holladay told of his exam-|
Inution of tho deceased ns City Coro?
net?, and described the wounds, testify?
ing that the man's death wns unques?
tionably caused by the blow behind the
right ear, and which was undoubtedly
inflicted by a blount instrument such
as the railroad car pin shown In evl-1
detneo might Inflict.

scribed, the robbing of the store and
tha finding of the pin with blood and
human hair upon It. They corroborated

oir about the time, the crime occurred.
Mr, Owen Cosgrovo said that to tha
best of his knowledge and belief he
gave Cotton a drink of water at his
place of business on the morning of the
murder about 3 o'clock. He was not
positive, however, that he was the man.
He said his place of business was about
4 minutes' walk to Mr. Wyatt's, and
about 200 yards In distance.
Lelia Watson, who lives at 022 Queen
