Haywood was arralgned ln Wake 8u
porlor Court to-day on the grand Jury
blll of Indlotment, eharglng murder In
the kllllng of Lutflow Bklnner, and, after
a lengthy tllt between counsel over a
prayer by the defendant for contlnuance,
Judge Justlce ordored a contlnuance untll
the July term, wlth the stlpulatlon that
lt come up flrst on tho calendar for flrst
day of the court, that the venlre be
drawn then, and that the case go to
trlal Thursday, i
Haywood, through counsel, presented a
rather sensatlonal affldavit of fourteon
typowrltten pages, settlng forth grounds
on which contlnuance la asked, B!x
polnts were made, tho most notable.
-brlefly stated that counsel had not time
to prepare for hla defonse, and that a
number of wltnesses were absent, two
ln Virginia and Maryland; that owlng to
the sollcitor'a decllnlng to prosecute, It
had been tmposalble to obtaln an agree
mont wlth any one of tho prosecutlng
attorneys as to the posltive purpose to
have the trlal at thls court; that the cftse
ought not to be trled now, because of tho
provaJencS of a temporary and wrong
fully created publlc sentlment agalnst
hlm, caused by untruthful newspaper
publleatlons and false reports asslduously
clrculated by persons Interested ln the
prosecutlon. Several of theso publlea?
tlons are clted.
The affldavit declares that one man,
George McMulIen, haa been employed by
the proseoutlon to go about the county
and stlr up sentlment agalnst film. He
declares that R. N. Slmms, prlnclpal wit?
ness for the defense, has been perslstent
ly vllllfted and slandered by these same
agencles slnce tho character' of hls evl
dence was publlshed, and fntJmldatlon
used to prevent corroboratlve wltnesses
from consentlng to testlfy. So bltter was
thls feellng, It ls charged, that persons
had threatened to boycott Tabernacle
Baptlst Sunday schoot and church be?
cause of Slmms' promlnence there.
Names of Intlmldated wltnesses are glven.
Among wltnesses out of the State who
can't be gotten hero at thls time ho
named' Phlllp Busbee, now under treat
ment In Baltlmore; John S. Stump, ot
Baltlmore, and John n, Hammett, of
Suffolk.
In concluslon. the affldavit declares
Haywood's bellef that wltnesses have
been Intlmldated and run off or lnduced
lo conceal themselves, and that ho could
not now have a falr trlal. But that at
tho next term, when tho management of
the prosecutlon Is tn the hands of a
sollcltor appolpted by the court, who wlll
say autborltatlvely thnt the State wants
the.truth In the matter, snd that wlt?

lleved that tbe East Coast property was
foremost in the matters dlscussed. The

probablllty now seema to be that the

Coast Llne, Southern and Seaboard, wlll
