JUDGE BOYD ON BLOCKADING.
Declares That (he Watts and Ward Laws

Htate than Any Other Legislation In
Judge Boyd in his charge to the
Grand Jury at Greensboro Federal
Court refeired in the major par; of
his 3harge, says Mr. Andrew Joy
ner in his corrtspondence, to
the evils of dickering in liquor,
either by distilling or retailing, in
connection with his instructions as
to what was exacted by the govern
ment simply as a matter of revenue.
Judge Boyd reiterated his former
strong condemnations of the traffic
from a moral and economic stand
point, declaring that what are
known as the State Wtts and Ward
laws have dene mote for the up
building and progress of North
Caiolina, in a material and moral
asr ct, whether it originally was
.omote4- as a political . move, than
any other . legislation in the past
twenty years. This all goes to show
that independent of politics or of
political ambition the temperance
forces of North Carolina have never
had a stronger asset than Judge
Boyd, and besides all this he prac
tises what be has for the last five
years us Judge preach id.
