AS TO COL. MEANS' CARD.
We admire the loyalty of Col.
Means to his friend Judge Rob
inson from a purely personal
standpoint and we are sure that
loyalty to the interest of Cabarrus
and her people alone prompted
oar criticism of the judge in
the first instance. We think it
quite ap -parent that our second
article carries with it the con
viction hat the interests of the
public wore uppermost in our in
centive rather than personal ani
mus. If we did Judge Robinson
injustice in any particular we
die rKjii.y. We feel sure that he
OTvN Cabarrus a debt for wrongs
b 1:; rulings and his general
in lie --iic .. that he can never pay:
Not having been present dur
ing the transections that have so
ou i:igo our people, and we
gv.-ntly fear lias even cooled the
z: il oi or advocates of justice
die i : x i .-, w must ue-
p-vO)d upon what habeen told us
v,-.i,.h - cniif't-nipd ijy the popu
lar disgust for him. Notwith
standing that personal loyalty
in V 2 bosom of Col. Means, that
is absolutely monumental, we be
lieve with full assurance that
had he seen all and participated
in a number of tilings that tran
spired, he would hardly be. able to
come to the defense of the man so
universally pronounced by the
bar a i popular, verdict as unfit
a judge. We cannot, too
highly commend the Colonel'
closing sentence and we respect
fully suggest to hi-fi to pass it on
to Judge Robinson while we ap
ply it to our Cabarrus people.

Scat Notes and Notables From our
Fromour Regular Correspondent.
During the dearth of active op
erations, the political sharps
about town are busily discussing
the seating of Congressman-elect
Roberts, of Utah. This question
seems to be slated as the first
sensational feature of the next
House of Representatives. As
a Congressman -elect, Roberts has
alieadv been drawing a salary
since last March, and there is no I
doubt that he will be auly
seated. Legally, it is difficult to
see how he can then be unseated, I
as long as he conforms to the
rules, but the "wise people" de
clare that he will be thrown out
neck and crop. All of which re
mains to be seen.
Arctic Explorer Walter Well
man is home again, with an un
pleasant souvenir of his recent
expedition in the shape of a bad
ly crushed leg. As soon as he is
able, Mr. Wellman will resume
his newspaper and magazine
work. He says that a dash by
the Franz Josef Land route is
the only feasible way of reach
ing the pole. On his way out
Mr.- Wellman gained news of
five other expeditions going in
this year. In regard to Aiuhe,
he thinks that there is no doubt
that that gallant adventurer lias
long since perished in the ice of
the far North.
The Woman's National Indus
trial League, of this city, has
taken the initial steps to raise
a fund with which to purchase
a home in Washington for Ad
miral Schley. When informed
of the project, Schley, withehar
acteristiC kind-hearted r.o-s, ex
pressed himself as being deeply
touched by the plan, but fears
that the subscription at the be
ginning of cold weather might
deprive worthy people of com
forts more important to them
than a home to himself.
then left the matter to the judg
ment of the committee. The
fund has already been started.
In this connection, a movement
might be in order to start a fund
for the purchase of a pipe and a
bag of tobacco for another gal
lant Admiral, who has been
"smoking up" rather regularly
in the papers.

marvellous. Its use in the Rheu

The MLttdoiiary's Little Joke.
A native Maori chieftain, the
descendant of cannibal kings, is
now completing his medical edu
cation in Chicago. Cannibalism
ended in his tribe, he says, when
Bishop Selwyn converted his
grand father, but he tells some
stories of it which have a dis
tinctly humorous flavor. For in
stance: It is said that once a chief cap
tured a missionary who was any
thing but a toothsom?" morsel,
as he was old and looked as if
his ilesh would be tough. The
missionary warned the chief that
he would not make a good dinner
and, pulling up his trousers, cut
a slice off the calf of his leg
and offered it to the cheif.
Thecheif tasted it, said he
didn't like it and passed it to a
a sub-chief. The sub tasted it,
make a wry face and passed it
on. The next man who took a
bite of it soat it out. The mis
sionary was released. After he
was gone it was discovered that
he wore a cork leg. Selected.
