ARSHAL BELLAMY IS BLAMED
FOR REMOVAL BY PEOPLE
OF THE CAPITAL CITY.
COGENT REASONS ARE GIVEN
Telegrams of Compaint Are Sent to
the Two Senators and to Mr. Pou,
. Representative From District
Announcement here that the office
of the United States marshal will be
removed to Wilmington was coupled
with the explanation that it was done
at the request of Marshal George H.
Bellamy. The marshal's home is In
Brunswick county, near Wilmington.
Telegrams were sent to Attorney
General Palmer, to Senators Overman
-and Simmons and to Edward W. Pou.
representative in Washington for the
fourth congressional distlct, asking
why the change. . There seemed no
tnore'reason why this office should be
moved than the revenue office. Mayor
T. B. Eldridge will also take the mat
ter up and there may be a move to
get the chamber of commerce to pro
test against the change.
Mr. Pou, responding to the telegram
sent him, said:
"Marshal Bellamy filed request to
be allowed to remove office to Wil
mington. Among reasons assigned
were lack of space and congestion of
activities of internal revenue service
at Raleigh. I hear the attorney gen
eral has permitted removal for a six
month period. There is a rumor
which I have not been able to con
firm from any official source that the
removal to Wilmington was permitted

Governor Is Much Incensed. . ,
The whole power of the state will
be extended to apprehend the lynch
era of Powell Green, in Franklinton
declared Governor T. W. Bickett. The
lynching took place In Governor
Bickett's home county and is the sec
ond within the year in that county.
"Such deeds put to open shame our
boasted white civilization and make
the name of southern chivalry a by
word and a reproach. It Is true that
the crime committed was an atrocious
one, for he shot down without provo
cation one of the best citizens of
Franklin ton. . This naturally aroused
great indignation but it affords no
semblance of excuse for a mob tak
ing the law; into its own hands.
'The inejnhers of that mob crucified
the elementary principles of justice
for which white men have fought and
bled and died through a. thousand
years. They have assaulted the very
citadel of our civilization and all the
power of the state will be exerted to
apprehend them and make them suf
fer the full penalty of the law."

Braid and buttons have been the ac
customed decorations for suits for so
long ar time that we take them as a
matter of course and are not surprised
to find them among any season's pro
ductions. Their popularity ebbs and
flows; occasionally there is a season
when, they almost disappear and then
comes a time when there is no getting
away from them. They have been at
the ebb for the past two seasons
sparingly but most cleverly used In In
genious ways that are surprisingly
novel. Like the 'return of old friends
after an absepce, braid and bone
buttons are welcome, especially when
we discover them so smart and orig
inal in application. V
The.suit at the right has a, few but
tons ui'd a little braid, but these are
used with consummate taste. The
braid appears in a lattice-work ap
plique on the front and back of the
coat, which is a yague-fltting belted
model, conservative and graceful. But
tons are set along the top of the pock
ets and on the narrow belt at the back.
It is, a suit for any clime or any sea
son. The suit at the left .differs only by
having more buttons set In two long
rows at the back, with bands of, braid
joining them. They form a x narrow
panel that is turned under. In most un
expected fashion, at the bottom. It s
little, unusual touches !of this kind
that give clothes distinction.
Designers who determined to use
braid evidently made up their minds tn
think up new - ways of applying iL
