HILL CflSE BESET Call of Old Murder Cnse Fjncls Siale'Dnweparecl; Court Proceeds Slowly. Trial of the only murder cas; on the crjrnlhal cor.rt docket, sal for today, was postponed until Wednesday by ' Judge Nclll Klllaiigh v.'l" ,<i : of the case found the .si,. nprepared. The case had Leon set earlier in the week for trial today but ii developed this afternoon that. Hie state had not itiiiccl subpoenas for Us wincsHs. The case in whicn Tom Hill of near Manila is (!cf*ml- ani, lias been on tlic court riacl:. 1 ; since 1930. Hill Is accused of the murder of Dewey Woods at a hunter camp south of Manila In August, 1330. It Is understood he will plead self defense. The closing hour of yesterday's court session and the entire morning session today were consumed in trial of Russell Bowers, chargej with theft o! a $1.50 watch. BO-.Vers was acquitted by the jury, which placed tile value of the watch at $7.50, nt tlie request of the court, .to guide action on the gcllty pl?a of Robert. Norton in a companion case. A string of witnesses was paraded by both the .state and defense with local jewelers being called to testify as experts as to the value of the watch.. The jury not only accepted the defense version of Die theft, which young Horlon in a companion case had already, admitted, but also accepted evidence of a Jeweler, wlio qualified for th? defense as an expert. The state eon- tended th3 watch was worth more than ten 'dollars as a basis for a grand larceny charge while the defense contended thai even if found guilty of the theft, the defendant could only be guilty of petit larceny because the watch was not worth as much as leu dollars. Ti-.e jury's action in placing the value of the watch below S10 in answer to a special interrogatory of Judge Killoiigh will mean that. Kober[ Horton's plea of guilty to the theft will : te accepted as petit larceny. . ' fridntr Gets Thrtt Years 'Doyle Widner. young Gosnell man, entered n plea of guilty to 3 charge of robbery just before noon and was sentenced to three years imprisonment. A two year suspended sentence was also meted out on iiis p!ea o/ guilty to a burglary charge. Widner admitted playing a leading part in the holdup of°Ed Pinkerman. Gcsnell storekeeper. this winter. Widner iiad previously pleaded not guilty. Ira Jones, alleged companion of Widner in the Pinkerman robbery and Indicted also for burglary of Crawford's store at Gosnell, was to face trial this afterncon. It is understood the slate had elected to try Jones for the store burglary. Nine jail prisoners, indicted by tha rscent grand jury, were arraigned in open court this afternoon. Included in the group were five white men and youths and four negroes. All entered phas of not guilty.' They are: Harvey Tanner, charged with burglary and grand larceny; Carl Cullson, charged with burglary; Owen McKay, charged ivilh burglary and grand larceny; c. C. Rebstock, charged with 1 selling liquor; Jack Ford, charged in two indictments with ,, -Burglary and grand larceny, and tl'.e following negroes; Eth;l Haywood. charged with grand larceny. burglary; Mary Watkins. charged with grand larcsny and burglary, and James Alexander, also charged with burglary nnd grand larceny and W. O. Lynch, charged with assault with intent to kill. 45 True Bills The grand jury submitted its final report yesterday afternoon and wxs discharged by Judge Killoiigh. A tolal of 45 true Mils was roturn- ed by U-. e jury during its thrce-iay session and four no true bills were returned. In submitting Its final report tha jury recommended repairs In the living quarters of the county jail. Otherwise ths jail is In good repair is well as the courthouse, the jury reported. Officers of the cnirt received the praise of jurors for their assistance In enabling thi Jury to efficiently carry out Its work.
