she continue to attend church re-
gurdless of rumors, and in that wny
she would keep down suspicion. The
letters were all signed, witnesses
swearing they were in Faris' hand

proached Faris on the subject of tho
iiimois .in various occasions and
Inns would only say: "Krnck I nm
your best friend and there is noth

DISMISSED IV CIURT
John Henry, Seeded of KMf-
Ing Operator Enftenwn Proves
When circuit court 'opened Mon
duy morning tho Commonwealth and
defonso both announced ready in
the case of John Henry, n negro
charged with the murder of James
I'nulemun, it telegraph operator at
KingV Mountain in June P)00. The
prosecution believed it had u strong
case ngninst the negro ns witnesses
were present und rendy to giv
damaging testimony. Mr. Flaig, a
jeweler of Danville, positively iden
tified Henry ns the negTo who
btought Englemun's watch io him
f6r repnirs. He thought he recog
nized the watch us the property of
the dead mu'n and referred to his
books and found that the number of
tho wutch compared exactly with the
number uf the ono he had sold to
Englcmnn. However all this amount
ed to naught for W. O. Robbing,
warden of the Alabama penitentiary
came up from Montgomery and on
taking the stand swore that at the
tune of the murder Henry was in the
penitentiary serving u terra of one
year nnd thut he made his escape
three days nfter the murdeV was
committed. The warden had the Ber
filhon description of tho negro and
it fitted exactly the marks on
Henry. There was nothing left then
for the court to do but to dismiss
the cue against Henry and the -warden
of Alubama prison left on
the 11 o'clock trnin with his prison
er where he will serve out the re
mainder of his term. The murder
of young Engleinnii was one of ihe
foulest eve committed in this' sec
tion of tho state he being, shot
through the window of the Q. & C.
oftico nt King's Mountnin while at
work. Theie is no question that Mr.
Flaig is correct in hi3 opinion that
the watch brought to him belonged
to tho murdered man, nnd from the
fact that a number of other wit
nesses were positive iu their identi
ficution of the negro it would seem
that he is right in the belief that
Henry was the one who brought the
watch into his store. A number of
men whose reputation is above re
proach were here to wear that 'they
had seen Henry in this section be
fore or about the time of the .mur
der and if their version is correct
there is a wide variance between them
and the warden's testimony.
In tho circuit court Friday nf-
ternoon Herman Camp, a 10-year-old
boy. who guve his home ns Chutta
nooga, was fined $30 on a charge ot
cutting a Q. & C. brakeman nt
King' Mountain IUsl summer. He
nnd two other boys were beating
their wny on n freight train to Dan
ville, when the brakeman discover-,
ed them nnd ordered them out of tho
car. An altercation followed und
the brakeman received it cut iu the
side. Camp was arrested ut Dan
ville nud hud been in jail here for
about about five months. He will
have to lay the fine out in jail.
Leslie McDonald, a West End
youth, was ordered to the Reform
School tit Lexington by Judge Har
din to remain until he ntttains the
nge of 21. lie was charged with
bieaking into Austin' mill at Mt.
Salem und being too yoipig to go to
tho penitentiary will pay the pen
alty of his crime in the school.
