Pasters Ctinge f : oewLccatioiisr - Lexington Dlapatcb, January, ind The next legislatare will be ask ed to amend the charter of 1 the town of Lftxiugtoii. This was of . ficially determined at a meeting of the -eom laksioners Monday after noon whn the committee appoint ed to draft the amendment made their report and the same was ac cepted. Among other things, the amendment wili provide for the - election of a mayor and commis sioners every two years, instead of auLuallv. as at present. The amendment will also giv? the com i missioners the authority to bor row money for street improve ments. It will also authorize the , town of Lexington to conduct an electric power plant and water system. When the bill enlarging the incorporation of the town was passed, a slight error was made, leaving out a small strip of prop erty running v from the Nolcomis mill to Center street, and the pro posed1 amendment includes this property in the incorporate limits, as it was formerly intended to be included The amended charter also- prohibits the increasing of the salary of any official or em ploye of the town during the term of office to winch; said official or employe was elected or appointed.

A Braie Boy. At Lenoir, N. C, a few days since four or five prisoners made an attempt to break jail, but were prevented "by the cool presence of mind displayed by young Wilford Smith, the 16-year-old son of the sheriff. The jailer himself was not at homo and Young Smith and his sister were giving the prisoners their supper. The boy had locked himself inside the cage, but had the keys with him Prisoner noticing this fact) made an attempt to get the ,ieys away from him, but the boy bravely struggled to the iron gate and threw the bunch of keys out be tween the bars, leaving himself locked up with the disappointed men. The sister screamed for help and in two or three minutes a good crowd of people was on the cence. The men were then all locb din cells. Monroe Inquir er. . Froo fhs Antilles.

The negroes, charged with com phcity md the Lverly murders at Barber's Junction lasteummer, will be tried at Stanly court next week. - Those accused are Delia, the widow of Jack Dillingham; who was unlawfully hung . at . Salis bury, with Nease Gillespie, and Henry Gillespie and George Ir vm, ana they are here in the Mecklenburg county jail. There is considerable specula tion as to the result of the trial of these negroes. Men who have studied negroes do not believe that as shrewd a negro as Nease Gillespie would have taken a pack of women and boys with him to commit such a dastardly crime as the one that was done in Rowan, Those who forget their prejudice against the negro dp not believe that the women had anything to do with the murder of the Lver- lys. It - is pretty . generally be lieved that the guilty negores died at the ends of the lychers' ropes at Salisbury. Therefore the in terest in the coming cases is very insignificant -Charlotte Observer. The 'Unwritten Law." We boast of the supreme maj esty of the law ; we prate of jus tice and demand that it be given all men and yet we carefully and zealously guard what we deem an inalienable right the privilege of applying, when it suits our purpose, an unwritten law which is lawlessness. The same spirit that moves a jury to acquit an injured 'hus band or an injured wife, is the spine that moves mobs to hang men who are safely held in jails ; the same spirit that applies the torch to the fagots that burn to a crisp the, tremblin g wretch pinioned to a stake and th newspapers cry but in thunder tones against the wild mob s ao tion but no word when another criminal is turned loose bv a spirit as lawless as that which ruled the mob of man burners. You cannot say that unwritten laws should obtain. You cannot in safety say that the law, in certain cases must be cast aside, for when you do you commence to undermine the very foundation, stones of society and pretty soon in the course, of ' years; the Un written law wlrch today may ap ply today to but two or three cases, will apply to many. And when that, reign is on, law be comes palsied he Iplees and it is hit or miss whether the just or the unjust be 'punished. Pair brother's Everything, Wilson Dispensary.

"As the ' matter stands now," Said Governor Glenn, Mr. Black burn has denied that he gave out the letter containing the accusa tions, but I am advised that it was furnished the press, by the private secretary of the congress man.

Congress will be urged to rid the army of all negro troops when it next takes up the Brownsville affair. Army officers tmd mem bers of Congress are giving the matter thought. Four regiments would be affected. Tne sugges tion grows out of the fact that ever since the incident leading to the discharge of the Brownsville rioters a wave of crime seems to have swept over all jthe negro troops in the army.
