The Coukikk in anxious to got all
the local news that is news. The
pnhlic is not looking for brilliant
editorials but for local news in a
local newspaper. We ask our read
ers to genii us news from every sec

that. It is the newsy paper which
There should be more comfortable
school houses. I?etter school houses
will help to solve the question of bet
ter attendance. Better school houses
is better than compulsory attendance
laws. School houses should be made
not only more comfortable but more
attractive. Not only the school
houses anil the school grouuds should
be made more attractive but the seats
and desks should be made more com
fortable. The surroundings we now
have in the public school buildings
belong to a past age. YTe should
not only have better methods of
teaching, better teachers and increas

Every citizen owes a public duty
to take an interest in public affairs.
Good men should elevate politics by
faking an interest in public affairs.
It is a plain duty that good men owe
the community. They should ens
tein and preserve froe institutions by
tneir efforts. In a free government

man has the same rights as the brain
worker. In the campaign of 1900
the ignorant negro vote was elimina
ted; politics was in a great measure
purified. Men of low character can
no longer be elevated to offices of
public trust by the ignorant negroe's
baliot. A higher standard should
and will prevail in methods of secur
ing nominations and at elections
Let the good citizens attend the pri
maries and nominate the best men
for office who will run upon their
merit and capacity and fituess for
public position and not upon their
ability to manipulate or purchase
It is especially desirable that the
best of men be nominated for office.
The best men frequently are those
who w ill not make a scramble for of
fice. There will be a great political
battle fought this fall. The biggest
fight will le made to get the legisla
ture. There are few entities where
there is much hope for republicans
to elect county officers, for the man

bo oau unuer tneir control, tne peo
ple have decided to have no more of
them. A United States Senator is to
be elected and there will be hard
work on the part of the republicans
to carry the legislature, but there is
discouragement on every hand for
them, the greatest thing in their
way Wing the fact that there will

entire colored population that will

of the county referred the subject to
one of our eminent agriculturists,
who replied that he had long since
quit trying to argue with people who
are as ignorant of the laws of plant
life as to supose such a thing; as a
matter of course oat seed will pro

THE ROWAN LYNCHING.
The horrible lynching in Salisbury
last week was a slain upon tho State.
The crime was an iniusd.il one, but
there was no possibility of thccM-cpc
of the prisoners. The inurd-.-r of tin
woman was a brutal one, horrible to
contemplate, and the brutes perpe
trating the crime richly deserved
death, but not at the hands of a mob.
There are no bitter people anywhere
than in Rowan county, and they do
not deserve this bloody stain of law
lessness. No county in the State has
better juries and justice scarcely ever
miscarries in her courts, nor is there
anywhere a sturdier, or more upright
tvpe of manhood composing her citi
zenship. A regular term of court
not being near at hand one would,
no doubt, have been called after the
excitement had subsided so that the
teoused culprits could have had a
fair and impaitial trial, as under the
law every criminal should have.
There should bo no hasty, intem
perate proeeeduro in bringing crimi
nals to justice.
It is true in Rowan county as well
as in other counties there has been
some delay in carrying out the judg
ment of the court in capital cases,
due to appeals to the Supreme court,
but there have been no pardons or
reprieves or commutations lolife im
prisonment, and in fact no acqiutals
by the juries in capital cases recently,
and in every case where there has
been an appeal to the Supreme court
for the past year, at least, the judg
ment of the lower court has been
confirmed. Of course, it is contend
ed that there are two sides to this
Rowan county lynching, but it is a
wrong side and a right Bide.
The recent outbreak of lawlessness
in the Salisbury lynching is some
what surprising when it is remem
bered that outside of the largo crim
inal class of negroes in that county,
there is no where a more law-abiding;
It is' true in sparsely settled sec
tions our women often have to be
left alone, but the law gives them
protection against the fiends incar
nate who commit rape and murder,
Every lynching is a violation of law
a disgrace to our civilization. Pro
tection is given by law, and the rille
and rope should not be resorted to,
Wherever a crime is committed then
is a law to punish the criminal.
It is true that when we stop to
think as do the friends and relatives
of the poor woman on the impulse of
the moment there may appear to
reason for Ivnchinsr, but when
remember that there is a remedy for
every wrong, and that in the courts,
good citizens go for justice and for
the punishment of criminals.
Mob law is never justifiable.

that devolved upon him.
The first day Judge Boyd went to

I Ivrks showed him two rooms saying
1 it he could select either. Both
i looms were handsomely furnished.
Easy chairs and comfortable lounges
were all about the room, and over in
one corner an electric fan was doing
dutv in a splendid manner. Judge
Boyd took a look at: the room and
turning to the clerk said:
'There is an article of furniture
that I do not see in this room that I
always want near me."
Tiie clerk assured him that no
matter what he might want would be
brought in at once. Just, then the
-Vief clerk of the department came
in and Judge Boyd repeated what
lie had said to the assist ant. The
chief clerk replied in the same man
ner as did his assistant, and informed
Judge Bovd that if he would let his
wants be known, he would attend to

clerk, Judge Bovd said:
"I always make it a rule to have a

Bovd in astonishment, for said he
that was the first time the Bible, to

A Plot to Kill King Edward
Loxuox, June 17. A sensational
story is current in London
of the discovery of a
assassinate King Edward. This story
has created considerable discussion
in nswspaper and other circles,but it
is lacking m anything like official
confirmation. According to the
current report King Edward's sudden
illness at Aldershot was due to a cold
but was merely an excuse . for
withdrawing His Maiesy from th
function, on the discovery by Scot
land Yard detectives of aidotagains
his life. The principals in this plot
have not been arrested. At Scotland
Yard to-night the utmost reticence
was maintained concerning the
rumor. It. was notable, however
that the chief inspectors who usually
go home at night, were all on duty
and refused to interview newspupe
reporters, and declined to deny or
confirm the rumor.
