Raleigh, N. C, Sept 13.-County
Superintendent D. F. Giles vainly
strove to open Mount Vernon School
! yesterday morning, but when he closed
his beautiful appeal to the manhood of
the place, parents led away their chil
dren1 and precipitated the old trouble.
The school failed last year when J.
R. Medlin's children, about the like
liest looking to be found, it is said,
came for registration. Mr. Medlin's
children were pronounced pure-blooded
by the superior court, by the su
preme and by all the law that could
be scraped up. They were therefore
within their perfect rights. But the
neighborhood swears by all the horns
of the altar tat they have an infinitesi
mal tinge of black blood in tern and
the community will not support the
year when SuperIntendent Giles

out there the
school broke into hostile camp and a
subscription session was taught near
that place which is three miles from
Raleigh. Mr. Medlin thought he had
overcome the prejudice which is not
against him, and announced that forty
or fifty would stick this year. They
did show up today and Mr. Giles is
against his immeorial trouble.
The community has not persecuted
the Medlins. It has simply refused
S attend the school since the Medlin
ixed-blood controversy arose. When
it came up the board of education ruled
against the Medlins. They appealed to
the superior court and there the jury
deciding the issues of fact pronounced
the children of pure blood. The appeal
went up. and Chief Justice Clark writ
ing the opinion relied upon the jury.
Justice Walker dissented. This morn
ing Professor Giles tried to appeal to
the community by telling it that its
citizenship, good and true, had decid
ed the children - all white. The pat
rons demurred to his flattery. They
said the jury had been picked for a
