Mr. Wendonburg strove hard to got
the date of the trial In which tho two
men appearod as witnesses, but the
witness was uncertain whether it
took place In tho magistrate's court
or before tho Hustings Court, part 2.
Walter C. Moore, a farmer who al?
so keeps a storo on the Midolthlan
Turnpike about three miles from the
scene of the homlcldo. waB called.
"Do you know J. C. (Sam) Talley?"
ho was asked.
"1 have heard of him and seen him."
"What is his genera] rcputution for
truth and veracity?"
A sharp legal tilt followed between
Messrs. Smith and Wendenburg, which
at last got beyond the even temper of
the judge.
"Walt a minute," suld Judge Wat?
son. "I don'f think that sort of thing
Is proper. You gentlemen must stop."
Mr. Smith stated to tho court what
he had proposed to ask the witness.
"That la a proper question." ruled
the court.
"Then the Interruption of my frlond
was Improper," asserted Mr. Smith in
triumph.
"Thero was no occasion for the In?
terruption." said the judge.
The stenographer repeated the ques?
tion as to whether Mr. Moore, knew
of Tallcy's general reputation for
truth and veracity.
"I don't know of Mr. Talley except
what I have heard," said Mr. Moore
with hosltatlon.
"That's Just what we wanr," said
Mr. Smith, "not your opinion, but his
genera) reputation In the community.
"Well, I hear people talk at my
store." said .Mr. Moo>-e. "I have heard
some of them speak poorly of Mr.
Talley, but I have urovo doubts of
their veracity."
"Who were they?"
"I wouldn't like to answer that
question."
Took Smith by Surprise.
Attorney Smith stated that the de?
fense had been completely taken by
surprise at tho attitude of the wit?
ness with whom he had talked during
tho dinner hour.
"Didn't I nsk you out on the lawn
what- was the general reputation of
Sinn Talley." he asked, claiming his
right to oross-examlno his own wit?
ness.
"Yes, and I told yr^^J didn't know

"1 said It was bad."
"Did you suggest to me that tho
source of your Information was also
bad?"
"You didn't ask me. I said that by
hearsay It was bad. 1 don't know my?
self."
"Isn't it tho truth." asked Mr. Smith,
"that Sam Is a little fearod In his sec?
tion, and nobody wants to say any?
thing against hirn?"
"That Is not a proper question," said
Judge Watson. "His lighting ability
is not In question. It is his truth and
veracity."
"I am not afraid to tell you what 1
1 know," Bold the w'tness resenting the
suggestion that ho was awed by Tal
icy's reputation as a fighter.
"1 hppo it will not bo Improper for
me," said Judge Watson, to make a
suggestion.. It seems to be n mis?
apprehension. I have personal ac?
quaintance with Mr. Moore and am
quite sure ho would not intentionally
misinform you."
"Under those circumstances," said
Mr. Smith at. once, "I accept tho alt
j uatlon as an entlro misunderstanding.
1 I did think that tho witness had not
treatod me Just right, but I hope I
have said nothing that was offensive."
"I should llko to tako this occa?
sion." said Judge Watson, "to make |
my acknowledgment of having spoken
hastily a few moments ago to the at?
torneys In thl6 case. I have received
only courtosy at your hands." The at?
torneys bowed their acknowledgments,
and In view of the statement of tho
court, Mr. Moore was excused, as he
was called us a witness in reference
to the character of Sam Tulley ap?
parently through mistake.
Wlllinm Pemberton was called and
testified that ho had known J. C.
(Sam) Talloy for years.
"What is his general reputation for
truth and veracity?" "asked Mr. Smith.
"I don't know. I nover had no deal
' ings with the man."
"What do people In the neighbor?
hood say about him?"
i "Pooplo don't talk well of him, but
I don't know, as I don't have dealings
with him."
Tho witness went to Mr. Wonden
burg for cross-examination
"Didn't you live for some time with?
out paying rent on land belonging to
Major Walker "
"Yes."
"You Just squatted there?"
"Yes."
I "Did you raise a family of nine chil?
dren there In one room?"
"No; In three rooms."
"Whcro do "you work?"
"At Belle Isle when at work. The
mill has not been running since last
June."
1 "Don't you have slops sometimes?"
"Yes."
"You are all right mentally, aren't
you?"
j "I/Ook here, young man. you don't
I know what you are talking about."
I shouted the outraged witness.
"Isn't it a fact." persisted Mr. Wen
1 denbur,?. "that when living at Major
I Walker's place you chained the cats,
and pictures were taken of thorn
I chained?"
"1 don't remember. I have had
strings on them."
"Don't you thresh your wheat by
laying It down on the floor and all of
you treading about on It?"
"That's good Biblical fashion," re?
marked Mr. Smith
Told Lawyer He Was Crosy.
"Say. man. you're crazy," replied tho
witness. "I didn't come here to talk
about nothing like that. You're be?
ginning to cross-question me, ain't
you?"
Even the culm dignity of the court
was shaken. The prisoner and his
counsel laughed, anja the presiding
judge found it convenient to pick up a
paper to hide a twitching face.
"Isn't it a foot." went on Mr. Wen.

who sat noxt, "that you claim to know

Tho witness began a long-winded
and involved account of hiring a ne?
gro.
"Stop, stop," said Mr. Carter. "Stop,
sir, this Isn't evIdoncO," said Judge
Watson, but the witness went straight
on.
"Stop the witness, Mr. Sheriff," call?
ed the court sharply, and Sheriff Gill
and Deputy Goode moved to his side.
The witness subsided.
"Can you give me the nnme ot any
one who has discussed Mr. Talley's
reputation for truthfulness?"

"No, I never said nothing. I never

"Do you know Mr. Moore?"
"Yes."
"Did you ever hear neorde !r. his

"I never heard Mr. Moore say any?

Mr. Carter objected to the form of
the question.
"Keep the witness quiet fo.- one min?

hear."
The question was ruled out and the
witness was excused.

"Have you ever been hold up In
Chesterfield county," asked Mr. Smith,
"ijcar Manchester, or within a few
miles, hy a man with a shotgun, and, If
so. state whoro and when and under
whnt circumstances?"
"We object," said Mr. Wendenburg. i
"We propose," said Mr. Smith, "to:
prove that it Is not unusual for auto-,
mobiles to be held up."
"And women killed?" supplemented
Mr. Wendenburg.
"That's your theory'." said Mr. Smith.
"I will bo frank to state to the
court," said Mr. Smith, "that wo can?
not bring this Inoldent closer than a
year or within several miles of tho
spot We do not even propose to Show
that it was the same man, but merely
to show that thero Is a prejudice and
animosity against motor cars, and that
tlmn nnd time again cars havo beon
held up and shot at with women in
them."
"Will there be several such in?
stances?" asked the court.
"I expected to bring another chauf?
feur here," said Mr. Smith, "but I find
that ho is dead. I expect to show at

"The counsel are familiar with re?
