Will, Have to Wait -For Legislative Action-- : After Travis . (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 ney general. "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 above." 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.
