The better element of no political party will consent for the chosen few to make an unholy alliance by which political honor, principles and per. sonal opinion are to be sold, bartered or traded upon. Humanity has not come to that point when a few men can bargain and deliver the honestly held opinions of men and try to af fect a mixture that will not mix any more than oil and water.

Perhaps the dirtiest and most at rocious crime known in the annals of North Carolina courts has been unravelled in the Superior Court of Wake county. The trial has been on this week and it is too dirty for cold time to picture and carry into homes. Our readers will remember the case George Mills was jailed on the charge of seducing i ing Miss Iana Wimbefly, county. She wa3 a niece of his.
