is hoped that all the fruit is not killed,
as mostly early fruit is grown here.

There seems to be a plethora of
domestic tragedies just now. A cul
mination, and correction of abuses,and
wrongs, and jelousy. But behind it
all runs the turbid stream of obscene-
ty, lust, and lax morals,
A short while past, a man was
shot to death in a hotel in Charlotte,
whether he died by his own hand, or a
womans is an unanswered question. A
A week ago a case was heard in the
Superior court at Whiteville w^here in,
a Mrs. Hays was charged with the
murder of a man. The jury that heard
her case said she was innocent, public
sentiment in that section said she was
guilty. The past week a lady by the
name of Mrs. Royster of Burlington
fired a bullet in her breast, while in a
hotel at Greensboro. The wound is
said to be dangerous Mrs, Royster Was
. the bride of, but a few days, and had
I been abandoned by her husband, and in
! her dire distress and heart broken con
dition sought this method of forever
ending her troubles. Saturday morn
ing last, a JUr. C. G. Kornegia formerly
of Goldsboro N. C. was shot to death
in his oflfice at Shreveport La. by a
woman who had abandoned her hus
band to spend her time with Kornegia.
The princepal trouble about this case
was that the woman empied the last
shot in her revolver into the prostrate
body of Kornegia before she realized
she ought to kill her self.
And thus this wreck, and ruin, and
the failing frailtes of humanity seeks
its surcease through the quick exit
of the bullet rout. These are bad very
North Carolina has cases that have
not reached there final climax in which
all of the elements of a fiend are mani
fest. A contemptable cur, a lying
crafty, cunning, human beast, plots,
plans, and consumates the seperation of
his sister from her husband, to make
a play thing of her for a rich repro
bate, and then as agent and emisary of
thirt foul wrong, undertakes with the
money of his sister’s friend? to say
she shall be castodian of their only
child, and for two years has so pois-
ioned the childs minds that she does
not communicate with her father.
Must such beasts as these strutting
around in the mock plumes of respec
table people be permited to defy,, and
trample with impuniety upon the high
est and holiest claim of a father, that
of the love of his child?

Lawyers Killed Senator
Cotten’s Torrens Bill.
The Torrens land bill, fathered by
Senator Gotten never at any time had
the ghost of a show. Mr. Cotton
could not succeed in getting it before
the House, but after many trials and
tribulations, did get it to a vote in
the Senate. Then it was killed by a
vote of 22 to IH, as fast as the cleric
could call the roll. Mr. Gotten took
the precaution to put the Senators on
record, so the farmers will know who
voted against them. Why we said the
bill never had a chance is this: There
are 32 lawyers in the Senate against
19 laymen. The vote against the bill
was cast by 18 lawyers and 4 laymen
who had been prevailed upon to go
with them. But the fight will be kept
up and the chances are that the Tor
rens land bill will be dealt with a little
more respectfully in the next Legis

that member of his organization do
not object to reasonable regulation of

that the regulating be done by the

the several States. This is exactly in
line with the iterated and reiterated
declaration of the country’s big cor-
perations generally, and is most pro
bably prompted by identically the same
motive. They know that Federal re
gulation, as demonstrated by exper
ience, does not r^ulate; while State
