The trinl of Charles Henderson and
Rother Henderson, indicted for mur
der. Which consumed the attention
of the ,Court of General Sessions
throughout the afternoon of Wednes
day and part of Thursday morning,
went ?to the jury yesterday afternoon.
After1-a 6hort deliberation the jury
returned a verdict of guilty with a
recommendation to mercy. T. Frank
Watklns. attorney for the defense,
gave notice of appeal.
This case has some interesting fea
tures but was chiefly characterized
by the difficulty in getting any lucid
testimony us to the facts surrounding
the case, it Feems that all the ne
groes had been attending a party of
seme kind, which took place on the
plantation of John McClure on Jan
uary third. A difference arose be
'fewecn ono of the Henderson negroes
and a negro named Ellington as to
.vhich should have the honor of es
corting Jan^e Moore home and the
trouble began. J. Van Ellington was
shot and killed while auothcr Elling
ton received a slight flesh wound In
Re'ther Heudcrfon admitted that he
he h?eV' shot at the dead man.
Following .the conclusion of the
Henderson case the eourt began the
trial cf Will White?, charged with
murder. At the.time of adjournment
!ast night only a tew'witnesses had
been examined and little headway
had been made with the case.
