jBirf. Will, Have to Wait -For
Legislative Action-- :
. (Special to The Dispatch.)
Raleigh, April 16. Major George
u Peterson, former paymaster gen
eral who recently was acquitted In
the JVVake courts of a $7,600. shortage,
has called upon State Treasure? Ben
Lacy for a tefund -of that amount. -
This shortcut nine months in ad
vance of the Legislature was rather
surprising, since as a member of tho
General Assembly fire years ago, ,?'a
jor Peterson' doubtless Jearned how
much of, highly colored tape is neces
sary to get anything, that 'calls for
money. But the Major tells Mr. liacy
that the check has been expected and
the necesity for it is unhid. A
"I have been expecting to receive
a check for $7,600 from you, being 4.he
amount which yr&s deposited with, the
estate treasury in January,!," Ma
jor Peterson -writes, "to cover an Al
leged shortage in my accounts as pay
master general, but have not received
same up to' this date. '
"I sold my liome and borrowed
funds to enable me to place this
amount with the State treasurer un
til the matter could be settled by the
courts to prevent the bonding com
pany from being forced to- pay over
this amount on demand of the attor
"I am in, stringent circumstances,
having beeir put to great expense In
defending myself against 'the charges
brought against me and you will do
me a great kindness if you will send
me at once the amount mentionod
Treasurer Lacy replied very cour
teously that, tie could not return this
money without "an act f the Legisla
ture. -1 I
. Should Major Peterson's attorneys
seek to recover this money at the
inext meeting of the General Assem-
York politicians recalled today as the
one hundredth anniversary of the
birth of Charles J. Folger, who play
ed a conspicuous role in politics in
t"ais State in the early eighties. Judge
Folger is best remembered as the
opponent oGrover Cleveland in the
gubernatorial election in 1882. An
eminent jurist,, then occupying the po
sition of Secretary of the Treasury in
President Arthur's cabinet, f J&ige
Folger was nominated by the Repub
licans as head of their State ticket.
Nothing could be said against ; his
character, public or private, , but the
circumstances attending his nomina
tion created so great-a division' in hiy
own party that many , thousands of
Republicans renmine4away t rom the
roils, and Mr. Cleveland was elected
iy the astounding majority of 193,000.
Mr. Cleveland's election, it was gen !
?rally conceded, was due less to - his
personal popularity than to the' great
defection of Republicans, but which
had much to do with his selection two
year? later as the Democratic candi
date for the presidency.
Judge Folger was born on the Is
land of Nantucket. In this State,
where his career was laid, he distin
guished himself as a lawyer of excep
tional ability, and a citizen of great'
worth. Until 1854 he had been a Dem
ocrat in politics. After repeated elec
tions to the New York State Senate,
he was appointed in 1869 United
States assistant treasurer in New
York city, and in 171 he became a
lustice of the court of appeals.
In 1880 he was appointed chief jus
tice by Governor Cornell, and iri that
year was re-elected to the full term
of 14 years. After the death of Pres
ident Garfield in 1881, Judge Folger
was appointed Secretary of the Treas

Ed Travis can find some law that WANTED A COMPETENT STENOG-
will let him out, but for the moment
the women have him in the run. They
have sought lawyers who -could give
them no statutes that save Travis.
Thy won't say whether they have
consulted that most eminent of all
North Carolinians, Chief Justice Wai
ter Clark, also of Halifax, but there
is a suspicion that they have their'
law in straight. It is Mr. Travis'
move toward Raleigh.
