CORONER'S JURY RETURNS ITS VERDICT
Knife Wooaa lis Head Causes Death
Colored Witnesses Slow to Tell
What They Know of
the Affair. '
Coroner Bralley held an Inquest Saturday
afternoon over the remains of Andrew
Hanson and the verdict of the Jury was
that Hanson came to bis death by a knife
wound In the heart, the weapon, at th
time the blow waa struck, supposed to
have been held In the hand of Icey Sims,
A half dosen witnesses were examined.
The colored men held as witnesses told
of the card game, and while no very
definite information could be obtained the
Inference conveyed by the testimony was
that Sims struck the blow.
The state was represented by County
Attorney English . and Assistant R. B.
Montgomery. Drs. Curtis and Davis tes
tified as to the cause of death, they hav
ing performed an autopsy on the re
mains. It was rather difficult for Mr. English
to get any direct testimony from the col
ored witnesses at first, but one by one
they gave way and admitted they bad been
In the game until a disturbance between
81ms and Hanson started. Not a single
witness testified to having seen the blow
struck with the knife. It waa on this sort
of information that the Jury returned a
verdict to the effect that Sims is suspected
of committing the crime.
Immediately following the Inquest the
remains of Hanson wore interred at Laurel
Hill cemetery. Rev. Mr. Blggara, of th
African Methodist Episcopal church con
ducted brief services at Brewer's undertak.
