PDBLISHED EfilimML fgfTHE DEMOCRATIC BANNER is the ORIGINAL County Union, subscribers will please take notice, Entered according to ppstal regula tions at the postofiice at Dunn, N. C., as second class matter. DUNN, Harnett County, N. C. DUNN, N. C., July 24, 1901. The follo\*ing is a copy of a warrant issued by au Alabama Justice of the Peace : "To any lawful officer of the State Com plaint on oath having Bene made before me that the offense of a Busing E. J.

M. Price Justice of the Peace.— Greenville Reflector. The Alabama suffrage plan provides that after Jan. 1,1903, all men, white or black, must qualify themselves for the elec tive franchise by paying their poll taxes; being able to read and write; showing that they have engaged in lawful occupa tions for twelve months, and naming their employers for live years>*A«t an alternative to the last named provision they may qualify by showing that they pay taxes on S3OO worth of property or own forty acres of land. In establishing this pro gramme of suffrage the majorit} r report of the Constitutional Convention provides that dur ing 1902 a "Board of Registra tion of three members shall sit in every county of the State and make up the lists of voters. Upon these lists shall be in scribed the names of all old sol diers (of all wars) and of their descendants. All others must give proof of good character and understanding the duties of citizenship. Once on the lists, the name of the voter must be kept there for life un less he shall fail to pay his poll tax. If wrongfully kept off the lists he can obtain redress by appealing to the registry board after 1903, or from the boards to the courts. Crop Condition. CENTRAL DISTRICT. Laurinburg, Scotland: No farm work of any kind since the 12th, and will not be for some time ; there has been 8 to 10 inches of rain this week, and land, crops, roads, and bridges have suffered badly; low and sandy land will make very little, stiff-upland cotton is growing too fast and is 3 to 4 weeks late; very little good corn. —L. L. McKimmou. Ansonville, Anson : Rain all this week and very little work done; gloomy prospects, too jpnch rain for crops.—Y. 11. Allen. Hackney, Chatham : Weather very unfavorable for crops; it ha 3 been raining every day since the lltli; too wet for cot ton, not many squares and taking rust; late corn also damaged by rain; impossible for farmers to lay by their crops in good order; not many peas sown.—Rufus Gardner. Roberdell, Richmond: Heavy rains during the week; crops washed badly; creeks to high water mark ; bottom-land crops drowned; crops were in fairly good condition when rains set in.—N. H. Goyton. Ezra, Johnston: This week too wet for farm work ; only two days on which plowing was pos sible and crops are grassy; fruit keeps on falling and rot ting.—Josephus Johnson. Eldorado, Montgomery: Have had some very heavy rains during the week ; much damage by freshets 01118 th : far-' mers were obliged to stop work ing their crops; corn on up lands fairly good ; cotton quite inferior. —N. M. Thayer. Vienna, Forsyth: Gloomy prospects for farming, rains all the time; wheat sprouting in shock ; no chance to cut spring oats; fruit rotting badly.—R. C. Lineback. Benson, Johnston: Crops im proved ; cotton is doiug well, and corn is fair ; peas are very good, too much rain for them ——JS. J. D. Boykin. No More Ex Parte Pardons. J The best thing Governor*.Ay cock has done since his inaugu ration is the adoption of a rule requiring notices of all applica tions for pardon to be published in a newspaper or to be posted at the court house door for two weeks in the county in which the applicant resided and at the nearest postofiice of the scene of the crime. This rule will re quire publicity in every case that comes before the Governor for pardon, and will give oppor tunity to any and all parties to be heard upon any pending ap plication for pardon. If there is any reason why the pardon should not be granted, the neighbors will be advised of the applications and can make known the reason to the Gov ernor. ' Ex parte pardons are neces sarily often improperly granted. The usual rule heretofore has been for the friends of the ap plicant to quietly get a petition and letters from the judge, so licitor, jurors and other parties. Armed with this endorsement of the application, an attorney visits Raleigh and urges the Governor to grant the pardon. The Governor has nothing be fore him except the prison rec ord and the petitioner, and after he has granted the pardon he may liud that the people of the county know little or nothing about it and that if they had known of the application, good reason against the exercise of executive clemency would have been presented. Hereafter they will have notice of the applica tion and the Governor will have the benefit of the views of the advocates and opponents in ev ery case in which there is divis ion of sentiment with reference to the pardon. The granting of a pardon is the highest function of the sov ereign. It ought seldom to be graft ted to correct courts or jur ies or to overrule their findings and decrees, but a pardon may properly be granted upon evi dence that comes after the trial, or because of the ill health or for some other good reason that appeals to clemency. It is the most important duty that develops upon our Chief Execu tive, one that weighs heavily upon our prtsent conscientious Governor, as upon his predecess ors. There was much criticism of Governor Vance for the liber al use of the pardon power and some thought Governor Scales pardoned tco little. It is not possible for all to agree with the Governor upon every decis ion on an application for par don, but will approve the new rule he has promulgated of publicity before the pardon is granted, and the carrying out of his rule, adopted upon his inauguration, of giving to the press every pardon granted. —News and Observer. When Lynchiny Will Stop. Lynching will stop in this State when there is an end of the infernal crime that invokes it, and not before. Parsonic he-virgins and lish-blooded officials may cry "anarchy puritanic penny-a-liners may damn the South as savages, but the law stands recorded in every Saxon, Southern heart that when a black devil assaults one of our women he takes the short cut, across lots, to perdi tion. Try him by law? Would you try a mad-dog? Yet the mad dog is merciful compared with this unspeakable tierid. The victim of rabies dies at least respected; the innocent victim of the black demon's lust lives a life of unending agony. Eorce her to face the court, to suffer a second death of shame and torture by re counting her outrage, to sub mit to the examination by some shyster lawyer, to risk the law's uncertain and delay, to run tne gauntlet of the pardon ing power, the chance of es cape? Put the villian in jail and let sentimental sillies slob ber over him and send him horse shoe geraniums; mount him on the scaffold and let him blister his dirty throat with the lie that he is going straight to glory? No, 110, brothers; let tlie poor woman suffer in si lence ; take the hell-bound to the scene of the villainy and let his sentence leap from the hot lips of an avenging Winchester. Lynching can be stopped. It ought to stop. And the way to stop it is to stop the crime.— Morganton Herald. THE BANNER wishes to say Amen ! Amen ! !
