Colored Men on Juries.
Handbills are out announcing a pub
lic meeting of the colored voters of
Mecklenbug on the 18th inst, the ob
ject of whicn is to secure an equitable
representation .of their race on the
court juries of the State. Just how they
propose to bring about the desired end
is not stated,-but their time and ener
gies could be better employed in fitting
themselves for that important recog
nition than in holding public meetings
the only result of which will be a large
amount of resolving and speech-ma
king. The average colored man's
greatest ambition is to run for office,
do jury duty and vote, without any re
gard whatever to his qualifications for
either of these. Whether or not the
colored men of the county have been
purposely excluded from j'nry serviee
we are not prepared to say, but there
are very few in the county who would
prove themselves qnalified as the law
requires, even were they summoned.
Important Changes in the Ritual of
There is now in session in Baltimore
a most important committee, consisting
of Hon. Henrv P. Carev. of Marvland :
Hon. Charles M. Busbee, of North Car.
olina; Hon.Wm. R. Hazlett, of Ohio;
Hon. John T. Jakes, of Delaware, and
Hon. Joseph TsHoke, of West Virginia.
The labors of this committee are ex-
pectea 10 result in a ttiorougn renova
tion and perfecting of the ritual of Odd
Fellowship throughout the world. In
September, 1880, at Toronto, Canada,
the Sovereign Grand Lodge 'of the I. O.
O. F., adopted a new form of ritual for
its subordidate lodges, as well as for the
European and Australian and other ju
risdictions which it has established. The
ritual in use from the beginning was
abrogated, and. three degrees of extra
ordinary merit adopted in place of the
nve tnen in use. The change proved a
grand success At the session held in
Cincinnati in September last it was de
cided that another radical change
should be made, viz : That all subordi
nate lodges should be required on and
alter tne 1st or July next to work in
the third degree : the business on the
lodges from the beginning having been
conducted wholly in the initiatory de
gree. The committee now in session
have nearly completed their labors, and
thenew forms are passing into the
hands of the printer. The fact that the
committee have full powers and are
authorized to use a large discretion has
enabled them to act with decision in the
premises. A proper book, containing
all the new matter, will be issued in a
few weeks, to be followed by an entire
revision in one volume of the combined
publications now known as the "Charge
Book" and "Degree Book," respectively.
The printing committee which have
charge of the printing of these impor
tant revisions, have concluded to
offer to the subordinate lodges the com
bined volume of the new work for the
nominal sum of fifty cents upon the
return of a Charge Book and Degree
Book. These new versions will be
translated and published into the Ger
man, French, Spanish, Norwegian, Bo
hemian and other languages, and will
from the first day of July next become
the mystic language of the vast and
world-wide Order of Odd-Fellowship.

Clubs, Stars, Etc.
The policemen and the town consta
bles had a very large.amount of fun yes
terday, in racing around the country in
pursuit of offenders. The day was
opened with an attempt to arrest Major
Lowry, a negro man employed at the
Air-Line yard, for an attempt to assas
sinate a colored fellow-citizen, Ky
Reinehardt, whom, he charged with in
vading the sanctity of his home with
foul intent. Lowry yesterday morning
proceeded to pack his effects in a car
pet-bag preparatory to taking his de
parture as soon as he could succeed in
"laying out Ky, but the latter gave him
the slip, came up town and secured a
warrant for Lowry's "arrest. The re
mainder of the narrative is very much
mixed, and for tear of doing some one
injustice we will call no names. The
warrant was placed- in the hands or a
constable who carried with him one or
two other constables to make the ar
rest. Upon the approach of the officers
Lowry commenced to move away, and
constable No. l."lit out" in pursuit. The
chase went along smoothly and was all
that the constable could desire until he
ran his man into a marshy piece of
land and came near overtaking him,
when he suddenly came to the same
conclusion of the man who gave up the
chase after the bear because ;the trail
got too durned fresh." Lowry turned
on tne constaoie, sac his carpet-Dag
down and pulled out a pistol as long as
a man's arm, remarking, "You are the
very man I've been looking for." The
constable didn't wait to make any in
quiries as to what Lowry wanted, but
betook himself to getting away about
as quickly as possible. About this time
the other constable hove in sight and
shot at Lowry several times, but he
paid very little attention to this, and
succeeded in leaving his pursuers, and
still breathes free air. The constable
who so suddenly gave up the chase ex,-
plains that he was unarmed and conse
quently not in a condition to withstand
the display made by Lowry.
Several of the policemen engaged in
a lively chase after another negro, start
ing from near the Lincoln depot. This
man was wanted to answer to a charge
of stealing money, but he also made his
escape, though he was hotly pursued for
a considerable distance.
in the afternoon a case of watch
stealing was reported to several of the
police, who started out in pursuit of
the thief, and another lively race took
place, but the officers in this instance
bagged their man and locked him up.
His name is given as John Eury.
About five o'clock Mr. J. C. Jones, the
man who was last week taken to Ral
eigh by Constable Orr, went rushing up
street in a terrible state of excitement
and informed a policeman that a man
had attempted to carve up the medical
firm of Kistler & Jones, and he want
ed him taken into custody. An officer
accompanied Mr. Jones to the bar in
rear of Mayor & Ross' store, where the
blood-thirsty offender was found, taken
in charge, and put in the guard hous.e
His name is unknown, but he claims to
have been at one time a clown in Fore
paugh's circus. He-is an old mad and
has a decided tram pish and dead-beat-
ish appearance, and looks about as
blood-thirsty as a lamb. Late in the
evening James Stone, white, was arrest
ed for beating a woman not his wife,
and put up for a hearing this morning.

V. Kerns on Saturday evening, Febru
ary 25th, 1882. R. V. Kerns was called

was unanimously adopted :
Wherear, Violations of law have
become a.thing of every day occurrence;
thefts, burglaries and even homicide
have been commiuted in our midst
within the last few months, and we.
the citizens of this vicinity, deem It a
duty to assemble and reason together
for urotection: .
And whereas, While we bow with
reverence to the proposition of law,
that it is better for ninety and nine
guilty persons to go unpunished than
that one should be punished innocently.
the question forces itself on the mind
that possibly the ninety and nine have
already escaped, ana xnac u is nign
time the penalties of the raw should be
visited unon a few :
And whereas, We desire a fair and
impartial trial at our next superior
court for the colored men, from this
township charged with the killing of
the colored man, David Mellon ; to-wit:
John and Henry Jf atterson and Elic
