Death of a Good Man. We
cUjrimiele the death of Mr. E. C. Wallace,
of the Sugar Creek neighborhood, in this
county. At the time of his death, which
occurred on Sunday afternontf last, Mr.
Wallace was about 65 years of age and had
been a member of Sugar Creek Presbyte
rian Clmreh for 40 years. He Was a high
ly esteemed and influential citizen of the
community in. which he lived, and has
been a useful man to the church and the
vrprld in his day and generation. Mr.
Wallace was a grand-nephew of James K.
r9lk, at one time President of the United
vniskey Seizure. Sunday afternoon
IE. B. Peters, a revenue officer, accompa
nied by a squad of soldiers, came into Char-!"'t-
with a wagon and three horses which
hud seized in Gaston county, on account
of; some alleged infraction of the United
States laws. We have been informed by
Mr. 0. M. Barkley, who is himself a reve
nue officer, that the wagon contained two
barrels, each having a small amount of li
quor in it; that the barrels were properly
stamped and that there was no shadow of
excuse for the 'seizure. We, of course,
kaow nothing whatever of the , merits of
this case, and only tell the tale as it was
told to us. "' - ; "' ' "

Postponement is made necessary because
