WARNING TO LAWLESS.
Those Who Offend Must
CRIME OF HIGH-UPS.
Names of Prluclpal Offenders Concealed
from Grand Juries and Ticket
Seller Placed in tbe Position
of Scape Goats to the
Greensboro, N. C, July 20.
Hon. . J. Jus ice, who has been
assisting hs one of the special coun
sel of the Governor in prosecuting
the cases against the Southern
railway and agent GreeD, in the Su
perior court in Raleigh this week,
returned home this morning, and
was congratulated on all sides by
result of the trials. Mr. Justice
savs he has been authorized by the
Governor to continue to assist in the
further prosecutions of all officers
and agents as well as of railroad
corporations persisting in violating
the rate laws.
Speaking of those officers who
violated the law prior to the decision
of Judge Long iu lialeigh this
week, aud the conviction and sn
tence of agent Green, Mi. Justice
said that tliose agents who disouey.-d
the law before tbe court of North
aroliua had passed on it, would
probably fare bettor than those who
violated it in the face of the convic
tion of Mr. Green. He says that in
the proceedings iu Raleigh the Stte
representatives are ihoronghly satis
fied with the outcome. That the
State is stili sovereign, it would,
he belieyed, be established beyond
question, when the bigheEt court
was reached, should the matter ever
go as far as that. But in any eveui,
he say 8, the questions at issue can
now be expeditiously taken to the
Supreme Court, and without the
delay, probably anticipated by the
railroads which brought suits m the
WORST OFFENDERS CONCEALED.
He declares that effoits to conceal
from grand juries the names of
those wno have shaped the policy
and directed the course of the
Southern Railway and the Atlantic
Coast Line roads, 111 defying thd
law, wiH prodably not be saccesBful.
Continuing he explained:-
"It is not just to the State or the
ticket agents, that these latter should
be made scape goats of in order to
protect the real culprits higher up.
The Governor is determined in his
course that the laws of the State
shall not be defied or disobeyed.
The Constitution of the State and
the statutes make it his duty to use
his office to apprehend and have
prosecuted criminals, and any law
yer who looks into the question can
see that the Governor is within bis
constitutional rights nd is obeying
the plain requirements of the law.
No governor conld submit to the
destruction of State's rights by pro
cess issued from Federal courts, con
trary to law, aud maintain the re
spect and affection of the people of
the State. No governor who believes
that all power not expressly granted
to the Fedral government by the
constitution, could have done less
than Governor Glenn has done in
these cases and will do in others,
sbonld there be others, without
violating his conscience and his
oath of office."
THE SITUATION DEFINED.
"The question is the one which
Jefferson predicted would be pre
sented by the insidious encioach
mentof the Federal judiciary upon
the rights of the State. If others
disregard the constitution, theie is
all the more reason why the State
anthorities should insist on its ob
servance. The doctrine that the"
constitution doesn't amout to any.
thing between friends, does not yet
obtain in North Carolina. This
entire matter is a serious one, that
must be ultimately settled by an
appeal to law and reason as an
nounced by the highest courts, drst
the Supreme court of North Caro
lina and then by the Supreme court,
of the United States. There cannot
be any lack ef firmness and should
not beany lack of coi servatiam, nor
should there be asy undue excite
ment in the settlement of the ques
tion." Senator J. R. Blair, o' Troy, bus
gone to Hot Springs to spend sever
al weeks. :
