The regular Febuary term oi Wilson County court convened on Feb, 3rd, His Honor, Judge E. T, Boykin, pre siding, Solicitor Claude M. Bernard appearing for the State. The charge of the Judge to the Grand Jury was a very able one. Most of the first week was consumed in taking up the Criminal Docket. Where were two murder caseSj In the case of the State against Beckton Benton and Robert Benton for the murder of Mr. Wiley Dickerson, The solicitor was aided by S. A. Woodard Esq. Messrs C. B. Aycock and Jnoi E. Woodard appeared for the defendants. . About two years ago, Dickerson had rented land from the Benton ."boys. Having some trouble over some corn these Bentons consisting of the two defeadants and their elder brother, Frank, went after the corn. Frank and Becton had guns. While there some words were exchanged and Dickerson having drawn a sword was shot down bv Frank Benton. The latter left and has not yet been arrested. Becton and Robert Benton were arrested and ar raigned as accessories. The defence brought out the evidence that the de fendants had started tnrkey hunting and had no other motive other than this when leaving home. , Evidence was given to satisfy the jury that Beck ton Benton played no. other. part in the affair other than a witness. The udge ordered a verdict of "not guilty" as to Robert Benton ana me jury, brought in a verdict of "not guilty" as to Beckton Benton, all these parties concerned were respectable people and well to do. This murder aroused much indignation at the time, the murdered man being over sixty years of age and having a large family. while the de fendants were all strong young men. The other murder trial was that of John Robbins for the murder of Ben Atkinson. The latter while in a house across tne rauroaa in this town, was shot by parties outside of the house. The evidence against Rnhhins was onlv circumstantial, and that not enough to satisfy the jury as to defendant's guilt, so he was ac cordingly acquitted. There were many minor cases on the docket. : Sam Wilkins was sent to the peni tentiary two years for perjury. This was a colored youth who seems to have received his just deserts. Fred Edwards for assaulting b. u. Wooding was sent to the penetentiary for iifteen months. Austin Farmer, Ray Folly, and James Ray were sent to the pen one year for farrerifiv. In addition to these there were numerous cases of carrying con cealed weapons, assault and battery and etc Court adjourned on Tuesday Feb; n. ' ,; ' Q T. HARRISS, '.; ... Attorney at Law, Wilson, N.
