with Eliza Goore, for the reason that
the deputy sheriff was present at the time it took place. The state rested at 12.30 yesterday. Before entering into the. defeuse, Major Hart asked the court to instruct the jury to bring in a verdict of acquittal in the case of Lizzie Goore. The major argued that inasmuch as the iudictment charged her with being a principal, and the evidence failed to connect her with the crime except possibly as an accessory after the fact, she could not be convicted under the indictment. The court declined to in struct as requested. The defense was in progress when The Enquirer went to press, and at that time it appeared quite probable that the trial would not be concluded until during sometime today, Saturday. LOCAL LACONICS. Price of Cotton. The price of cotton on the Yorkville market yesterday ranged from 4* to 4^ for the best. Recruit* For the Chaingang.

For the beuefit of those interested, Mr. G. W. 8. Hart requests The En quirer to announce that a certain land sale advertisement that was to have been published today, has been postponed uutil uext week, on account of unavoidable delay in securing the necessary order from court.

At a special meeting of the Clover Cotton Manufacturing company, held in Clover last Tuesday, it was unanimously resolved to increase the capital stock from $150,000 to $200,000. The books of the company will be opened for the purpose of receiving subscriptions to the amount of $75,000, which will be used in the building of a new yaru mill. The greater part of the proposed new stock has already been taken. An Important Enterprise. The brick making plant of Mr. W. N. Ashe, near the O. R. & C. depot, has cut quite an important figure in the business of Yorkville this summer. Mr. Ashe has been making brick at the rate of about 100,000 a week, and so far has made over 1,200,000. Of these about 500,000 have been sold and delivered. The enterprise furnishes constant employment to a large number of hands, and also a market for quite a quantity of wood. It Works Nicely. There have been lots of peavines cured in this county according to the plan recently given out by Mr. Jno. R. Ashe, and so far as we have heard, in each case where Mr. Ashe's directions were intelligently followed, the result o /tAmrtlnta cimoocc AT r P was a ouvwcw. . AV. Wallace, of the Beth-Shiloh neighborhood, has been bringing in some of the finest peavine hay that has come to this market. He has sold 15 or 20 tons here. It was cured according to Mr. Ashe's plan.

C., about a month ago, was tried iu Charlotte last week and found guilty. He was seuteuced to be hanged on the 20th of December. The evidence fixed the guilt ou Jackson beyond a doubt. He formerly lived in Yorkville, where, we understand, he was not regarded as a bad raau. , Not Much Damaged. Mr. T. B. MoClain has, so far, gotten about one-fourth of his corn crop shredded, and corn from that portion stowed away. He estimates that the damaged corn?that which is damaged to such an extent as to make it unfit to feed to horses and mules?does not ? amount to more than per cent. The damaged corn is beiug ground in a mill which makes a coarse meal of cob and grain together, and this meal will be used for the purpose of fattening hogs. The State Farm. Superintendent W. A.

The Charlotte Cotton Market. Charlotte Observer, Wednesday : "The New York cotton market was lower yesterday than since the war. Local prices also dropped a peg or two, the best cotton bringing only 4J. The farmers have ceased to murmur or complain. They recognize the inevitable, and have begun figuring on a scheme to reduce lubor in order that what is paid out may more equally balance what comes in. October was a record-breaker at the cotton platform. Receipts amouuted to 7,877 bales?very much more than recorded for any month in several years.
