Proceedings in the Strother
Case at Cuipeper.
Widow of Victim of Tragedy the Star
Lefendants Said to Be Opposed to
Postponement?Sketches of the
Attorneys Retained.
Sno^inl Vmm a
CULPEPER, Va., February 22.?The brief
session yesterday in the case of James A.
Strother and Philip J. Strother, brothers,
Indicted for the alleged murder of William
P. Bywaters, their brother-in-law, came
as a surprise to many persons who are interested
in the affair, many of them thinking
that Mrs. Viola Bywaters, widow o?
the victim of the tragedy, would not bo
able to appear at this session of the court.
Mrs. Bywaters is really a sick woman, but
she said she would make a desperate effort
to i.ppear in court at this session, because
she feels that ttie termination of the trial
will have a good effect ur>on her nervous
system and will also relieve the terrible
mental strain under which she has labored
since the tragic death of her husband the
night of December 15 last, only a short
time after her marriage. It is believed that
counsel could have made a showins which
. ?|Hk''<; :'.ju" -^mW'^K '?
J. A. C. Keith,
Commonwealth's Attorney and Leading Counsel for
would have caused Judge Thomas W. Harrison
ttt llflVP pruntojl o further fAntinnanfa
of the case.
"But the Strotlier boys did not want any
postponement." a near friend of the defendants
remarked. "They are anxious to
have the case determined by a jury, feeling
that no twelve men in the state of Virginia
could be obtained who would condemn them
for what they did.
"Written or unwritten law," lie added,
"everybody in the state of Virginia knows
that as far back as they can remember the
right to protect a woman's honor has never
been denied."
Public sentiment, it is declared, is certainly
favorable to the defendants. An elderly
resident of the-county who was a warm
personal friend of By waters and who had
accepted the hospitality of the latter upon
the occasions of fox hunts said last night
that while he and Bywaters had been the
closest of friends he would not take his
side for the part he had played with Miss
Viola Strother, afterward Mrs. William F.
djniuns. n?' saia ne naa so staled to the
father of the dead man and that he had advised
the father to drop the proceedings
against th Strother boys. Tt e friend said
he sincerely hoped tfle verdict of the jury
will be such as to place the stamp of disapproval
upon such conduct. He added that
the elder Mr. Bvwaters has a great many
friends in his section of the county and
that some of them probably desire to see
him corr.e out of the case without being utterly
More Than Appears on Surlact,.
It is tht> opinion of some of the persons
interested in the cas? that an effort will
be made at the trial to show more than
annears linon the snrfn?*?? l?ni if io
| lieved Judge Harrison will not permit certain
alleg -d scandals to be mentioned for
the purpose of influencing the jury. The
story that Mrs. Bywaters will tell when
she is placed upon the witness stand will
be a revelation to those who are conducting
tiie prosecution. The prosecuting officers,
it is stated, do not really know the
exact nature of the whole story that Mrs.
John L. Jeffries,
Former State Senator ami Leading Counsel for the
. Defense.
Bywaters will relate. Tliey have seen her
at the home of her sister and always in
the presence of one of her relatives, but
never have they questioned her when they
thought she was free from the influence of
her relatives. *
At the time Mrs. Bywaters made her
statement to the coroner's jury she was
really in no condition to make a statement.
and it was necessary to ask her
questions in order to draw out the facts.
Even then, it is asserted, her answers were
not satisfactory. She was then suffering
physical and mental agony and was not
able to tell the whole story of what had
transpired between Will F. Bywaters, her
reputed protector, and herself daring the
time pri ir to the day when the marriage
ceremony was performed for the purpose
of nrotectinif the eood name she hurt thero
tofore enjoyed. It is stated that at the
coming trial the widow, who has been referred
to as the chief witness for the commonwealth.
is really to be the star witness
for the defense. Her recital of her relations
with Will F. Bywaters prior to the
time of their marriage, It is believed will
attract tile attention of the jurors and
cause lhem to forget something of the details
of the shooting which followed the
alleged attempt of the husband to desert
his bride.
It is hardly likely that any effort will be
made on the part of the commonwealth to
deny the claim that Will F. Bywaters had
promised he woald marry Miss Viola
Strother, his cousin, who had been his constant
companion and friend: that he promised
her he would become her husband, long
before the day of the marriage and homicide,
it is stated, will be related by the
widow. She will also tell the court and
jury of the circumstances of visiting Washington,
and remaining under an assumed
name. Mrs. Bywaters, it is stated, will also
tell of a pathetic scene that took place in
front of a building in Washington when
she was about to enter to be operated
upon. The young woman, realising the possible
result of an oDeration and dreading
it, it is stated, said to By-waters:
"You said you would marry me; why not
do it now?"
Regarded as Critical Moment.
That was regarded as a critical moment
in the life of the young woman who was
loved and respected by her neighbors, and
she realized that marriage at that time
would have made a great difference in her
life. Bywaters, however, it will be contended,
had no idea of becoming the husband
of Miss Viola Strother. He had been
entertained in the Strother home as a
member of the family, and had boasted
that he was the protector of the young
woman during the absence of her brothers,
and it was while he was spending so much
time at the house that she was wronged.
Had it not been that he was seen leaving
the room of Miss Viola late one night the
relatives of the latter would never have
suspected him of wrongdoing. That night
he denied the accusation of one of the
brothers, denied that he had been in the
room of the young woman and said he had
crossed the hall from another room where
he had secreted a bottle of liquor and
where he had gone to get a drink before
The court and jurors will hear of the
three trips to Washington and the operation
that was performed there, and of the
return home of the young woman. They
will be told of how she nearly bled to death,
and of how she held out until the last minute
that she had not been guilty of improper
conduct with Will Bywaters. Stress
will be laid upon his alleged inhuman conduct
after he reached the house, and had
almost succeeded in bluffing the brothers
into believing that he had been wrongly accused.
"Don't send for a doctor," he is alleged
ir\ hotra o o 5 ^ X4. ill I- - -.1-1 J
iiutv oaiu, icaiuig, It Will IM Ijiaillieu,
that an examination by a physician of the
woman, who was fast bleeding to death,
would reveal her true condition. The claim
will probably be made to the jury that by
not sending for the physician Will Bywaters
thought death would follow in a
short while and the lips of the woman
Tlf A 111 <1 In/1 o/\ ? 11A.

could not be pointed at him. The brothers
and sisters were anxious to save her life,
however, and the call of the physician
proved more than the young man could
stand. He could hold out no longer, the
jury will be told, and his marriage and
death followed. When such a showing has
been maue, coupled with the claim that Bywaters
attempted to desert his bride, thereby
making public the scandal, counsel for
the defendants will ask for their acquittal.
Attorney Jeffries, who represented Culpeper
county in the legislature, will appeal to the
jury, and the twelve men will also hear the
eloquent appeals of John L. I.ee of Lynchburg
and R. Walton Moore of Fairfax.
Will Seek Conviction.
On the side of the commonwealth the
prosecuting officer from Kauquier, Mr. J.
A. C. Keith, and Capt. Micajah Woods of
Charlottesville will appeal to the jury to
convict the defendants. They will do their
best to put a phase upon the case entirely
different from what the defense will claim,
and as the case is to be handled by some
of the ablest members of the Virginia bar
the trial will undoubtedly be an interesting
While it is believed that the summoning
of a venire from Shenandoah county will
simplify matters, those connected with the
case do not feel certuin that sixteen qualified
jurors will be obtained from the fifty
men who are to be brought here. Deputy
Sheriff Bowersett departed yesterday afternoon
for Woodstock to have the clerk of
the court and the sheriff comply with the
order of Judge Harrison.
"I will do my best to summon the men
and get back by 10 o'clock Monday morning,"
the deputy sheriff said, "but there's
no certainty that I will be able to have
them here by the appointed time."
Should the court find it impossible to obtain
a jury from the fifty men who are
to be brought here Monday an additional
number of talesmen will have to be summoned.
Judge Harrison and the attorneys who
are engaged in the case are well-known
jurists, having participated in legal battles
in several sections of the state, some of
them being among the more important
trials in the history of the state. Judge
Harrison was selected as the trial judge
in the case because of his ability and fairness.
He is one of the ablest members of
iiip judiciary 01 tne commonwealth of Virginia
and is widely known throughout the
state. He is a native Virginian, having
been born in Lecsburg, Ixiudoun county,
only a few miles from Washington city.
His father, the late Matthew Harrison, was
a prominent and prosperous member of the
bar of that county. Judge Harrison is a
graduate of the University of Virginia. He
went to Winchester after graduating and
was associated with Maj. Holmes Conrad,
who was the special prosecutor in the post
office cases in Washington recently. He was
also associated with R. E. Byrd as editor
ol the Winchester Times.
Elected to State Senate.
Having a desire to take part in the
political welfare of his state, he was a
candidate for a seat in the state senate and
was elected by an overwhelming majority.
Eight years were spent in the state senate
and the judge was also a member of the
constitutional convention. In 1S95 he was
elected judge of the circuit which embraced
Warren, Shenandoah, Frederick and Clarke
counties and the city of Winchester, but
the circuit was shortened under the recent
act of the legislature. Judge Harrison has
been married twice and has five children.
J. A. C. Keith, commonwealth attorney
for Fauquier county, the leading counsel
for the prosecution. Is well known In this
section. He Is a son of Isham Keith and
nephew of Judge James Keith of the supreme
court of the state, and his friends
predict for him an honor as great as that
his uncle now enjoys. Mr. Keith studied
law with R. Taylor Scott, who was attorney
general for the state, and James V. Brooke.
After graduating he formed a partnership
with the attorney general and practiced law
with him at Warrenton until the latter
died. Later he formed a partnership with
his brother and is now a member of the
firm of Keith & Keith. Three years ago
he was appointed commonwealth attorney
for Fauquier to act for James P. Jeffries
and he still retains the position.
Former State Senator John L. Jeffries,
leading counsel for the defense, was the
leader of the bar of this county for a
number of years. He was commonwealth
attorney and he also represented his county
in' the state senate. Recently he removed
from here to Norfolk, where he Is the senior
member of one of the most prosperous
law firms. He happened to be here th?
day the shooting occurred, and the Strother
brothers telephoned to him to come to look
after the case. Mr. Jeffries is married and
has several cniKlren.
Appeared in McCue Case.
Maj. Micajah Woods, who is assisting the
prosecutor, and John L. Lee, who is associate
counsel for the defense, are able lawyers
and fine orators. They gained considerable
notoriety while appearing in the case
of J. Samuel McCue, former mayor of Charlottesville,
who was tried and convicted
for wife murder. Maj. Woods, who resides
in Charlottesville, prosecuted McCue. while
Attorney Lee. whose home is in Lynchburg,
defended the former mayor of Charlottesville,
holding positions similar to those
they are Ailing in this case. Mr. R. Walton
Moore, who is associated with counsel
for the defense, is a resident of Fairfax
county. He is regarded as one of the leading
legal lights of his county and state,
and the defense looks to him for able as
slstance In their effort,to secure exoneration
for James and Philip Strother.
While the residents of the town and
coupty are not engaging in street-corner
discussion of the merits of the case, many
of them are really taking a deep Interest
in it, but they are even keeping away from
the court for fear they will be accused of
taking sides with either Bywater's relatives
or those of the defendants. Many of them
learned yesterday for th? firstt time the
names of the witnesses who are to appear
on behalf of the commonwealth. It is true
that they have an idea of the nature of the
testimony some of them are expected to
give, but what others will say Is a matter
of conjecture with them. Dr. E. H. Lewis,
whose name heads the list, is the county
coroner. He went to the Strother horn* the

member of the political faction with which
the Strotlier brothers were not connected;
Sheriff A. W. Pulliam and his deputies, J.
A. Bowersett and J. H. Judd, are also witnesses.
They will tell of their knowledge ol

will be able to relate something ol
By-waters' troubles prior to December 15.
First to Beach House.
John G. Lamon, who was the first neighbor
to reach the house after the shooting
occurred, is to be an important witness,
as will B. F. Bywaters, father of the
deceased. E. I. Eggborn, another witness,
is the liveryman who drove the officers to
the Strother house, and Miss Margaret
Wise, a telephone exchange employe, will
be asked to tell what she knows of telephone
calls being made the fateful Saturday
night. R. M. Thompson, the undertaker
who prepared the body of Bywaters
for burial; R. H. Pearman, the photographer,
who took photographs at the house;
R. L. Johnson, a tenant on the Strother
place, and two colored domestics employed
there, Linwood Taylor and Millie Gibbs,
alias Coleman, will go upon the stand.
Mrs. Viola Bywaters, of course, is to be
the star witness. Her sister. Miss Bessie
Strother, and a sister of Bywaters, Mrs.
Bessie Triplett, are among the relatives
who have been summoned. Mrs. Fannie
Yowell, a neighbor, will be called to relate
that she called Bywaters over the telephone
shortly before he was killed and
congratulated him upon his marriage.
George Marshall, a constable and neighbor
of Strothers; Claude Royston, a resident
of the county; P. Thomas, a merchant.
and Sliirlev Clarke, a traveling
salesman, are also to appear as witnesses.
John S. Mcintosh of Gordonsville and Ringgold
Armstrong of Woodville, Rappahannock
county, are two witnesses who live a
number of miles from here.
Names of Other Witnesses.
Miss Bettie Sisson, who conducts a boarding
house here; Miss Emma Hall, who is
a saleswoman in a store; R. P. Rixey, friend
of By waters; J. A. Swan, jr., a merchant,
and J. B. Stringfellow, cashier of the Second
National Bank of Culpeper, complete
the list of witnesses who have been summoned
for the common/wealth. The records
in the clerk's office do not show that any
witnesses have yet been summoned for the
defense. It is thought only a few witnesses
will be placed upon the stand by
counsel for the defendants, as they will
rely largely upon the testimony of Mrs.
Bywaters and her hister, Mrs. E. L. Gaines.

duration. Mr. Garrison was born October
27, 1837, in Virginia. He learned the trade
of carpenter with his father. He was
employed In the Washington navy yard
for a number of years. He gave up his
position In the navy yard to take the
position of stage carpenter at the old National
Theater, which Dosition he held for
eighteen years. He gave up that position
to engage in the building business. Mr.
Garrison later accepted the position of superintendent
of the National Musuem, which
