Judge Schenck heads his article

porations and the people make the
Law The Pen is mightier that the
The Judge star's off by saying
that his former article stirred np the
Southern Railway considerably and
its friends came to its assistance by
personal abase of him instead of re
plying to his arguments. Quoting
his language, "I have been a Btudent
of corporation law for 14 years and
am yam enough to think that I know
something about it.
He stales that the Southern em-
plpjfia him for 14 years; that he
went day and night, destroying bis
health; that he went into the em
ploy of the road reluctantly and only
by fair promise; lht instead of re
munerating for l.ia hard services
after disabling bis health or exercis
ing any feeling of humanity or
charity toward him in his helpless
condition, the "soul ess corporation'
cooly turned him out withct pre
fernog any charges against hiin.
'It thought I was dead aid treated
me as it won id a dead dog, by abol
ishing my office."
Judge Schenck says that he has
taken no cases p.gaiust the Southern
Railway free of charge, nor was he
a disappoiu'ed candidate for director
of the North Carolina Railroad; that
he will have his sy though he be a?
saBsinated and la'.cnds to take all
th4w$3se8 he can get against the
Southern and will be greatful toanj
one who employs b:m; says he knows
its weak points and is not afiaid to
meet the railroad in the courts,
He says that by holding a charter
out of the 5iate casi.8 can be remov
ed to the Federal courts, and that
this is done in instances where
amounts exceeding $2,000 are
claimed. It is fun her alleged that
tho railroad claims it can cot get
justice in theBe caees in order to
baye them remove 1. The J ndge
predicts that the next Legislature
will enact laws to prevent this if the
bills are not purloined.
He holds that the .State has the
right to tax foreign corporations;
that foreign corporations can be ex
cluded from the State, or a tax im
posed on ita shares or sioc';.
The ex-Judge plainly st.te3in the
beginning that (like the Irishman)
he is ft man with a grievance, tie
heaps abuse on railroad officials and
grows eloquent on "luxurious cars"
in which the officials, Le states, roll
along throught the State in gorges
pus splendor. It is further stated
that liveried servants await the tap
of an electric bell in Col. Andrews'
Ye gods and little fishes! Dan
Polk in livery. And the Judge
farther says it would be more con
sistent, too, with a Republican form
of government, if these nabobs
would not display their wealth be
fore the eves of the Bufleriug poor
around the depots. It stated that
other States have compelled rail
roads to take oat charters.
Judge Schenck a3aerts that the
Southern is now stretching out is
octopus bauds to gather in the C. F.

ought, if necessary, call the Legisla
ture together to prevent the consuv
mation of this cnin, or the Balti
more syndicate ought to postpone a
sale nntil the next Legislature meets
in order to take actiou. He further
says that the Southern is trjing to
destroy all the branches of this road.
The Judge praises the Railroad
Commission. Uaya that it has le
duced accidents to life and limb one
half by compelling railroads to ketp
their tracks and other property in
repair. He gives the Farmers' Al
liance credit for .creating the com
The Judge states that the next
Legislature should raise a joint com
mittee on railroad reform, and let it
formulate a code.
Judge Schenck announces that be
will come again, and closes by statu
ing that "with free silyer,' free
speech and freedom from the power
of foreign corporations written on
its banner, the Alliance will win
against all comers."

Yesterday afternoon about half
past three o'clock, while Mr. Virtru

United States Court, was busy at
his desk during the trial of the cases
before the court, a telegram cs
handed to him.
It announced simply that hia
brother had been run oyer by a train
in Atlanta and killed.
The elegram came from Ex-GoV'
erner Northern, of whom the young
man was a private secretary. His
name was John H Royster and he
was thirty.three years old.
Mr. Royster left Raleigh about
twelve months ago, took a good
posit io , married, and now leaves a
young wife and infant.
Tnis fact would alone neeni to
have given a deep enough pathos to
the shock of his death, but a more
cruel touch was yet to come: yester
day morning his mo her and sister
left on the 5:30 train to visit their
son and brother. They arrived yes
terday afternoon in Atlanta, about
the lime of the frightful happening,
and found the body a corpse in the
Mr. Royster was seen last night
by a reporter of the News and Ob
seryer. He had telegraphed imme
diately to Atlanta, but had perfected
no arrangements that he cared to
give out. Moreover, he was so dazvd

wa3 not in condition to talk of the
matter. Raleigh News and Ob

to the settling of taxes put a false

Upon moiion it was ordered that
he sheriff give to the clerk of the
boaid a list of all persons who failed
to make a return for taxation for the
year 1835, and who bhall fail to pay

It appears, according to people
who were at the Methodist Confer

Bishop Duncan rather rubbed it on
evai.gelists, icspecially Jones and
Fife. No names were mentioned,
but the allusions were extremely
pointed. A large number of the
church people appear to bear no
love for the evangelists.

woman. They h.id been bearm to
death with ne buggy traces, the
man's offense being that he was sus.

up. When the women arrived cone
of the three would or could tell any
thing about the church'property.
Upon their refusal they were ail
three stripped naked and beaten
with a new buggy trace, which it is
auid was almost worn out. Tiie
man wa3 given about 150 lusher

in a terrible condition; the women

It is a very common occurrence
for a man to lose or misplace his
hat but a very singular thing for a
woman to lose her bonnet, especially
from her head A' lady recently
eilied at a certain parsonage upon
the sick wife of the minister, but
did not tarry long, as she was on
her way to church, which was a

Between the house and the church
the bonnet became detached from

At one o'clock thu morning two

The accideet occurred 300 yards

trains involved were No. 45, south
bound, Engineer T H Hammond
and Conductor K L Gilmer; and the
fourth section of Ho. 42, Charlotte
bound, Engineer George A Link
and Conductor T B Sumner.
At railroad beadqnarters, it is
said that the blame for the collision
rests on the Charlotte bound train,
which was over twelve hours late.
The rule governing the running of
train's is that when a train becomes
over twelve hours late, it lcees all

should have remained "dead," and
got in the way of 4S. The collision
was a terrific one, the engines com--ing
