   Register, The (Newspaper) - September 26, 1931, Danville, Virginia                               TJtIK DANVILLE, VA.f SATURDAY, SEITEMBEK 20, 1931 DIM OF HAS HEARD Only Three More Cases Remain to Be Heard When Church Court Reconvenes on Tuesday Elders of the Virginia Methodist Conference who are trying Rev.

Thomas Rosser Reeves, church prose- cutors are expected back on Monday lor she purpose of preparing the linal phases of the case. It was learned today that the bulk of the testimony against the minister has probably -been heard. There re- main three more cases to be present- ed, It is learned though it is said that the church has the right to of- fer rebuttal testimony. It is believed that Tuesday evening vvili see the major case of the church completed leaving Wednesday and part of Thuisday for the defense clos- ing arguments to follow with a de. cision possible that night. in the meanwhile the stenographic record o' the case will be transcribed ;nd thp verbatim testimony of wit- jesses EO far heard will be ready for the court when it returns. Dr. John B. Wlnn and Rev. R. T. Waterficld are reported to be working deliberately on the defense. Its gen- eral character is said to be a com- plete denial of the charges which have been made and probably a counter attack on some of the witnesses. The decision will end the case so far as the Conference is concerned, unless the defense charging an error ;u the trial finds room for an appeal. Such at: appeal would be heard by a committee from the General Confer- ence which would be appointed by Bishop MacMurray. It is not known if error has yet been charged but a numoer of objections have been rais- ed on the admissibility of testimony j tnese having been ruled on by Dr.' George E. Booker, who represents Bi_ Mouzon, presiding officer of the Virginia Conference. If there is no appeal then Bishop Mouzon will at tne ssxt Conference session promul- sentence arrived at by the trial committee. TOWN TOPICS Rev. j. o. Babcock and Rev.

The city authorities have filed with the Southern Railway a base rate for water which the company is desirous of using. The company is prepared to take 4001000 gallons of water daily from the city and is now considering whether it can meet the rate which has been submitted The company plans to close down its own water pump which draws from the river for boiler pur- poses.
