The Witnesses Before the Coro? ner's Jury Know Nothing, MAY BE A VERDICT TO-DAY. The Examining Justice and the Jurymen Did Not Confine Them? selves Strictly to the Case in Hand. To Meet This Afternoon. Justico Dawks, of Huntersville, and a coroner's jury, with Mr. Hard? ing as foreman, met yesterday after? noon at Justice Hawks ollioe, iu ad? journed session, to continue the in? vestigation of the Laura Ward tragedy. Tha jury examined a large num? ber of witnesses, principally those who had been examined the day previous, and elicited nothing new or that would throw tbe slightest light upon the circumstances attend? ing the death ui the unfortunate woman. Tho examination took a wide scope, embracing various subjeots of inquiry, and wbouover there was disclosed any dieorder or small thing iu the oommuuity, auch as stealing a fow pounds of coal from the Nurlolk aud Western railroad, a quarrel or tight between two negro boys or negro women, the exam? ining Justice und his ussistiug jury? men uud volunteer urons examiner would bruuob oil to ferret out the slight o?euse without the slightest regard for tho lact that they were exuiuiuiug witnesses with u view to ascertaining tlio causes which led to the death of tbe uulurtunate womau. While tho examination so far as faots go whs fruitless upon tbe main question, they did learn that Heckey Wilson, a daughter of Ham, who lived in the bouse with Luura Ward, while )>icking up a few lumps of coal was beuten by u sou of Ham named Henry Dowdy. They aloo learned that old Aunt Kilon Ogburn tripped up a young "coal chandler" a fow nights ago and gave bim a thrash? ing. They also learned tbat Henry Newby was ufraid of dead peo? ple, tLut Laura Ward lived iu a room with two nogro men and that tho neighborhood was generally disorderly aud disreputttble, but for moro the investigation was a water haul, absolutely unsutisfautory to tbe jury in form, muuuer aud method, which fact was evidenced alter a session of about uu flour, iu which the negroes,women ami men, i wore asked questions, pertinent and i impertinent, relevant und irrele vaut, udjourued till thia afternoon at 4 o'clock, when tho lnuoh-dissut lulled jury will meet and render a verdict. They will certify that tho woman ou ine to ber death from blows re? ceived upon tho bead and body, which caused death, as testified by the physician who made the exami? nation, but further than this the jury will say uothing. As huou ns the jury will have adjourned, the detectives will likely take the case in baud uud attempt to unravel the mystery. Catarrh originates in scrofula's taint. P. P.
