Little or no KnUiuiam is showu
It Las been said that this election
day is the dryest ever held in Con
cord. Little or no excitement exists
in any of the words.
There is no opposition to the
straight Deniocritic nominees in
Wards 1 and 2. In Ward 3, Key. B
Frank Davis was ran for school
commissioner, and Mcssr3. G W Pat
terson and John S Hill for com
missioners, a9 opposed to the Demo
cratic ticket, but up to 4 o'clock the
Democrats were ahead.
In Ward 4 there was a ripple of
fear and excitement about noon, as
Jake Boger, the negro, who is run
ning for school commissioner, nad a
pretty strong run of supporters, but
this wa3 gradually knocked out by
the steady inilux of Democratic
voters aud at the time of goin to
press, there reining little or no
show for the ticket, opposing the

and reports that the body of a col

found on the railroad track below
the depot this morning about 3
o'clock. Her body was terribly
mangled, almost beyond recognition,
as several trains had passed over it.
Some think she was drunk ana went
to sleep on the track, while others
believe she was murdered and placed
there. Several arrests of suspected
accomplices were made, this morning.

Two Important Case Involviu- Its
Validity Heard Saturday in the Su
perior Court Both Dimisp., nnd
an Appeal Taken.
Among the cases Saturday before
Judge Starbuck were thoae of Eliaa
Carr vs. Octavius Coke and L E
Wyatfc et als. vs. Wheeler & Wilson
Manufacturing Company. They
Mere heard together, and inyolving
the validity of the Assignment Law
popularly known as the Hilemar
The former action was brought
by the Governor himself and all
other citizens of lyorth Carolina to
restrain the Secretary of State from
delivering for publication the Act
to Kegulate Assignments, etc., upon
the grouna that it had never passed
the House and Senate and that the
signatures of Speaker of House and
President of Senate were obtained
The case of L K Wyatt et als. vs
Wheeler & Wilson Manufacturing
Company et nls. was brought to ob
tain a judgement of the court that
the assignment law was invalid for
reasons similar to the above.
The pla ntiif in the former action
wn3 represented by F II Busbee, Esq ;
the Secretary of State by.kessr3
Batchelor and Armstaad Jones. L K

vvus represented by Messrs Holding

preening the firm of Hurst, Purnell
& Company, ako one of the ucfend
ans, ro':,d a demurrer to tho oom
Argument upon the demurrer was
epened by ex Judge Strong, in'a
speech of 30 midutes. He was fol
lowed by J N Holding who cited
authorities in support of the posi
i tion taken 07 his colleague.
On the renly, Arnutead Joup, )
Ksq , was next heard. He argued
that the only proper way to attack
the validity of the act was through
the Legislature which orignated it,
or the analogy that a jndemnt of 1
court can e atV.c!rtd cty by tL 3
court which deliyered it. Mr, Jones
was interrupted bya statement of his
Honor to the effect that he had a
well-defined opinion upon the sub
ject, and that the argument of Mr.
Jones was well grounded, and that
it could not be attacked as held by
Col. T M Argo in a brief argu
ment cited authorities to support
the ground that the court could
not go back of the ratified act itself
to impeach its validity.
F II Busbee followed, and con-
tended tht no cse had been cited
in any respect analogous to the case
at bar, for the reason that they
were decisive of the. point ot amend
ment and that no allegation of fraud
had seen made; that it was the duty
of the court to inform itself by any
means within its power to decide
upon the question of the existence
of the statute; that it was a mockery
to say that the court should be
blind and powerless to protect the
public from the misconduct of the
Mr. Busbee made a ringing speech
of a few minutes upon the facts of
the case applying the law as cited by
the preceding counsel.

and further argument, while it
might serve to change him, yet he
thought would bo unnecessary.
Judgement was accordingly rendered
dismissing the actions, upon the
ground that evidence going bick of
