tola, WHO I'I1E1 THE HALL THAT KILLED SAW NIK HIIYAN. So Sny the Jury Who Heard and Silted U illinniH in Arrested lilt; and Jailed. Coroner J. B. II. Knight resumed thy Investigation of tho Bryan murder yes terday morning, It had been rumored would be put out no stand who would give some startling revelation:', and there was a pretty good sized curious crowd in the court room to hear wbat they would be. Tho coroner got to work a little after eleven o'clock, and called up the wit nesses. , Andrew Simmons, col. said he Uvea ubout ft rnile from tho placo of the kill ing, and on tho Saturday night of the it murder, ho heim iwo suow - muugui I hey were pistol shot? in c!o;c success ion. Ho said that Mr. 'Whitfield had t.V.d him at one tiino that tho land was putted, and ho now gnetseri that "they" (uo names) would quit doicg so much mUchief down there. On ono occasion somo parties had torn a floor out of an old gin house on iMr. Whitfield's land, and made a gangway across the creek. Uo had heard shooting in that vicinity several times, and heard some one shoot ing on Sunday, after tho murder. Had nnver heard anv threats by Mr. Whit- lold. Tho witness gave a description of tho cabin occupied by Ike Williams, and t hi f nrmttirii in it. out saiu no never uwv nnv crura or firearms in it. He did not know Williams' business down there, tint had beard that he attended to Messrs 'Whitfield aud Brown's fish traps Never heard of any threats by Williams. Len Fowler said he had heard Ike Williams sav ho had shot some one on tho river. Question. Did you ever hear Wil liams say that ho had shot some one down there aud had trailed the blood up tho liver? Answer. No. The witness said ho had heard B Pulley talking with Terry about going fishing on the Saturday evening on which the killing had occurred, and he (tho witness) had told Bug Pool tha these parties wero talking about going tfshing on tho river that night. The witness did not know of any hard feel ings existing between Pulley and Bryan, aud had never heard Bryau s; oken of as a nuisance. Calviu Bagwell was called. He did not know, persorally, Whitfield cr Brown, lko Williams bad told him that Mr. Whitfield had offered a reward of $2,00 to anybody who would catch EJ. Varboro, Hob Pulley, Sawney Bryau, or Henry Fowler on his lands. Williams also had told him (witness) that Air. Whitfield objected to anybody's hunting on his lands. This talk occurred on the second Sunday in May. The wit ness said that on one Saturday (didn't remember date) Sawnie Bryan asked Mr. Whilfiild for permission to fish. Whit field said, 4lI have no objection to your fUhing there, but 1 want to see Mr. Brown first.' Bryau then said; "Mr. Whitfield, 1 have heard of a heap of d u hard things you have been saying about me, aud 1 want to know what you have against mo." Mr. Whitfield aaid: "I have nothing in tho world against you." Witness then left the two parties and heard no more. He heard Ed Yarbor ough way he went to where these two xncu wero talking and that Yarborough naid that Whitfield objected to Bryan's going on tho laud. . licry Eovvler said that, &3 had formerly lived ""-OU.Jhi "land, and had beou instructed ""to move off by Mr. Brown. Soon after moving ! otf ho came to t own to see Mr. W hit field on somo personal business. At that time Mr. Whitfield said that it seemed several parties down there wero trying to boss the land; that Sawnio Bryan had tackled Mr. Brown somewhere; that he (Whitfield) wanted Bryan to tacklo him once, and if he didn't down bin ! 1 1 Witness had never been prohibited from fishing ou tho lands. Patrick Snipes said he had a conversa tion with Mr. Whitfield about fishing ou his lands. Ho aud Bob Pulley went into Julius Lewis & Uo.'s store where Whit field was. Witness said : 'Mr. Whitfield you nev er come out ubout the river now." Whit field eaid: "No I don't goto Milburnie, but I go down to Pool's mill where I have some traps. I was down there one night this week and cleaned out a fellow who was down there. I have that land posted, and I have employed a man to keep certain parties off the lahd. I don't care about the others, but if those ceitain parties don't stay off I'll kill them." Witness asked, "How can you kill them if you are not there all the time." Whitfield said, "I have Mr. Williams down there, and he will shoot them if they don't stay off. I have Williams employed to attend to the traps also." Witness then left Whitfield and Pulley talking togother and heard no more. Whitfield called no names. Heny Pool said he lived on Whitfield aud Brown's land about H miles from the place of the killing. He knew Wil liams, and sometimes went down to his cabin. Williams had told him that he hart shot down there every t mo ho heard a stick crack, and expected that he (Wil liams) had shot at his (Pool's) dog. Wil liams never told him why or by what authority ho shot arouud there. Witness said that he was employed by tiai.A. i.i i. j . . , . . . wuuiiuiu io piu in some usn irpps, ana tie had put in some, getting tho neigh borhood Ojs to I e'p him. K-.b!. Pul ley and bawuie Bryan both helped to put lu some traps. "Afterwards Whit field said I could not attend to the traps and my crops too, so ho took the traps." "1 was down at Williams' ou Sunday morning after Bryau was killed. Be tween nine and teu o'clock Mr. Brown came down to the traps and said suppose Sawnio Bryau is killed." Wil- iiams saia : "l am very sorry ne is dead." I naid I believe I will go up and see Bryan." Mr. Brown told us that Bryan was killed near tho mouth of Crabtree, aud said he heard two shots the night before The witness said that ho did not think Williams had been down to tho shanty sinco Bryan had been killed. Williams kept one gun (double Darrein in the shanty all the time, and WILLIAMS IS THE MAK ho had seen a new lookiog pistol there. Calvin Bagwell was recalled and said, when ho was down at Williams' shanty, ho saw a large old looking pistol lying on a shelf near the shanty. He could not describe the pistol and he did not know whether it shot cartridges.or carried caps and ball. He saw a double barrelled shot gun on a rack in the shanty. Sheriff J. It, lingers took the stand and told where he got a number of pis- dene " family that were in tho xosession of the coroner. There were a number of pistols on the coroner's table, all of which had boen collected in the vicinity in which ths murder occurred. One of these was a bright looking double action revolver, which Williams had been keeping at his hut, but which he carried up to Mr. Brown's house after the killing of Bryan. The sberiH therefore got the pistol from Mr. Brown. It was impossible that this should be tbo weapon that fired tho fatal ball, for it is a cartridge pistol, whereas, it is well established that the bail which killed Bryan is "a mcu'.ded tall and was shot from a muzzle loading weapon car rying percussion cap3. Calvin Bagwell's evidence was the only testimony given which showed that Williams had any other wenpon than this pistol and a shot gun. II is evidence shows that Williams had another pistol, an old looking one; but the witness could not tell whether was a caD and ball pistol, or a car- ridge pistol. Mr. Keubter said that the pistol ------ . r which had been procured at Falley s louse bore no evidence of having been recently fired. He would say that it had not been firea m a month. One or two other witnesses were ex amined, but brought out nothing of in terest on cither side. Solicitor Argo then made a statement to the jury, telling them their duties, af ter which the coroner gave them the case. The court then adjourned to 4 o'clock, but the lury were instructed that if they reached a verdict before that time, they mteht send for the coroner who would receive Their verdict. After they had been out about an hour, they announced that they were ready, aud the coroner was sent for. The Verdict. At 2:45 o'clock, the jury came in and rendered a verdict to tho effect, tha Lemuei Bryan camo to bis death from ; pistol fhot wound at the hands of Ike Williams. Coroner's Return. Inqu'sition taken and ended at Ral eigh, May tho 2Gth, 1890, before me J. B. H. Knight, coroner of the said county upon view of the body of Lemuel Bryan deceased, late of Wake county then and there lying dead, and upon the oath of Henderson Bay, T. Q Gattis, E S. Gat tis and W.

There was somo talk of making the hour half past six, and this rule was desired by both clerks and proprietors.

Seo them, W. H. & R. s. Tucker & Co. Is Oxford Improvement stock good? Certainly! What is it based upon? On 500 acres of land lying in and adjoining tne town ot uxiorci; on 4UU acress more suburban property, controlled by the company, and on the 500 acres of min eral lands and also fine bright tobacco lands, upon which the company has op tions. How much, stock 13 there? Thrpo thousand shares of $50 each. And lots are given away? To each holder of two shares a lot of 50x150 feet will be given. Where will these lots lie? In desirable parts of the land right at the town and on continued and parallel streets. Will these lots be worth the prica paid for the stock? Yes. Every holder of two shares gets a lot? Yes, except the original subscribers. By resolution of the board of directors they excluded themselves from this priv ilege for the benefit of other subscri bers. Why was the company started? To advance Oxford, make it the pride of the Golden Belt, and to make money for che share-holders. Will it succeed? It will. 1500 lot holders will not let it sleep. Tobacco is as good ta make a town of as iron. It employs more hands. It is a luxury that is a necessity, and trade may be ever so dull, but the world will chew and smoke.

THE AVORLITS C0MMEKCE. New York,' May 26. Messrs. 'Hub bard, Price k Co. in their cotton cir cular to-night say : Foreign markets remain closed until Wednesday morn- but our market has proved an in teresting one without their assistance. The feature has been the continued buying of July by foreign houses, evi dently to close previous sales mado against their holdings of cotton abroad. So sharp was the demand that the mar ket advanced with scarcely a reaction until the close, which was steady at about the best prices. The advance ap pears to meet with no resistance from the larger interests in the market, as thev appear quite willing to remain in active, looking on while the demand carries prices above a parity with Liver pool acd attracts cotton to Now York. Already we tear of several shipments of cjtton held in Southern markets, com ing here for delivery upon this market. Receipts are full, but without effect upon prices, which are now unaer meiuua- ence or ouying uy tuesuuus. iuuio bought freely last week, but the trans actions were made direct, not appearing until to-day.

It encour ages the importation of common tea, and must result disastrously to the business. The producing countries can supply an unlimited quantity of poor tea that is really not fit for consumption. "Prizes which have been given away by retail stores, possibly may account somewhat for the de mand for low-grade teas, but it seems hardly credible that consum ers expect to get as good a tea with a Pe, at a certain price, as they could obtain for the same price and not pay for the extra article." Why will not the general public listen a warning from so high an anthnrifv and consider the great advantage to their own health and pocket, to be ot bvpxpr cisiog more thought in the selection of their teas.

As long ago as 1875 all of the facts about tea and its abuses wer given in the Baltimore press by Messrs. Gillett & Co. They have been un tiring in their efforts to open the eyea of the public to such abuses. Possibly their motive was their own profit, for all that time they were introducing their He-No tea.
