An Easy Job of Sensation,—The
Richmond Christian Advocate has
published a rumor, which has been
widely copied, that Jeter Phillips,
who was convicted of the murder of
his wife at Richmond, in 1870, and
executed therefor, was afterward re
suscitated and is now alive. Without
stopping to discuss the probabilities
which support the story, we would
remark that nothing would be easier
than to start a story of the kind about
any one who has been hanged, and
to have it repeated until it would be
firmly believed by about one third of
the entire people, at least. To begin
with, this is not only a sensational
age, bi^an ageof trickery .and cor-
T!^/*^ffTT*^great is the t^ubt, in
many cases, of the honesty of the ad
ministrators of the law, that a mere
hint that a certain hangman had been
tampered with and bribed, would
open the. way for the belief of any sto
ry of the resuscitation of a man who
had been hanged and counted dead.
There could be no finer field for oper
ation than this. It would require no
great amount of talent to invent a sto
ry that would take like “wild-fire,”
for many people are naturally inclin
ed to be superstitious, while many
more arc so fond of being humbugged
that they would swallow the largest
sensational story that the ingenuity of
man could invent.

who delivered an appropriate address,
and was replied to by Rev. Creasy.
The dinner was elegant, and so abun

unharmed. Several Greensboro folks
had baskets, and there was an inter
change of refreshments and an inter*.
mingling on a most liberal scale.
The young folks spent the time after
dinner in rambles and observations
over our city, while a number of oth

Commissioner Nelson introduced
Hon. D. F. Caldwell as having a mat's
ter of grievance growing out of the
ilocationvpf Schenck street, which he
held was not run by a straight line,
and that it was unfair to himself. It
was urged in reply that Mr. Caldwell
had extended an unrestricted right to
make the street across his lands, that
the committee were not apprised ci
any ot the peculiarities of the situa
tion, and now for the first time learn
ot their existence, a fact which they
regretted, but for which they did not
feel responsible. Mr. Caldwell final

Mr. John A. Barringer appeared be
fore the Board as attorney for Mr.
John Barker, who applied for recom
mendation to continue the sale of
spirituous liquors at his old stand
near the court house, arguing at
length in favor of Mr. Barker as a
man, and in favor of his stand as a
suitable place for the retail of liquors.
Mr. Barker presented a recommenda
tion and a numerously signed petition.
It was remarked by a member that it
could not be in order to vote on the
petition in the face of the ordinance

ation ground public buildings, within
which line no retailing should be
permitted The motion to reject
was carried by a 7 to 3 vote.
A motion was then made for rec
ommendation of same applicant to re
tail in the Bogart building, an^ an
other motion to postpone action on
the same till Friday night. Mr. Bar
ringer asked that the basis of objec
tion be stated, but Judge Schenck
suggested that such information would
be too clearly in the interest of the
party applying for the recommenda
tion, and that moreover it was not
known to the Board collectively what
grounds of objection might arise or
be fniinulated in the further course
ot ihe proceedings. By permission
Mr. Barringer withdrew the petition
for the stand in the Bogart building,
and rested it where first designated—
