turn; and with inevitable death comes
inevitable sepulture, to b provided for
by the living, . v . . . " . .. i
-A strange and startling fact ctaruis tmt
in the present history of Asheville, that
it public cemetery; and the reso
lutions adopted by religious corporation?,
originating in municipal regard for pub
lic health, practically close their grounds
as private burial grounds., . 1
Thewisdonr of forbidding the building
of crowded cities of tb4 dead among the
crowded and constantly increasing living
is no longer open to question. The pub
lic mind nasacquiesced in the propriety,
inact, the necessity of the disjunction of
the'flttick'and th dead. 'A very recent
case, to Which We can traly allude, brings
up the subject in a -very startling way.
The question comes up, which must be
answered. What are we to do with our
dead? We' cannot take them away to
impose their precious remains upon the
guardianship of others. We ought not
dejEty.lbe phfrunate"trarngefnth8" rites
due to humanity, por xefdsethenj in nn
cpntested place in the quiet" uosomof
mother earth. TYetthe municipal laws
and the resolutions of religious bodies
present us the alternatives of resistance
to the law and contempt of resolutions,
or the bearing away to distant graves
the remains of those whose resting places
we would fain keep hallowed, watered
with tears, or made bright with flowers.
Which alternative shall we take? or
rather, shall we not adopt another alter
native, and purchase suitable . grounds
convenient to the town, . ample enough
for all purposes, ample enough for these
sad uses and.also for adornment; for the
piety of affection joined with the influ
ences of good taste combine in -modern
days to make these spots, beautiful as
well as hallowed, rather than the dismal
scenes of upturned clay or glittering files
of monumental roarble Such' spot can
be. purchased. .Years ago when popula
tion hee was smaller, a public spirited
gentleman anticipating what ias now
come to pass, made the proposition of a
provision of a public cenjetery in a most
beautiful and suitable location, himself
offering the grounds 1 on ' conditions 11 b
eral, just and easily complied wit'i. His
proposition was not adopted; and now
those grounds are . otherwise- appropria
ted. . Newton. Academy -grounds, and
lands to be acquired contiguous to them,
seem now only attainable. Twenty,
thirty, " forty ' or more '-acres, may ' be
boughtrmay be improved and adorned;
and then will: have been obtained that
which can no longer be deferred. - - r
. The . Board of Aldermen and public
opinion must I combine- to take la very
matterof fact view of what can no longer
be .whistled down the wind Jas a matter
of sentiment nor deferred as one of con-,
veniences.: The necessity- is upon us to
act at once. Be the death "rate ever bo

quest to. which we referred in J-esterday's
Issue,' is explained to "largo extent by
information received to which we are
largely Indebted to Capt -W. D. Sprague.
The following are the leading-facts: '
'' Ori'hursday-night, two y brothers,
Charles .and Johtt Yprkj. were rn their
return, home near (Jooper s, from Ashe
ville, where they , had -been to haul a
load of lumber. They:- were driving an
ox team. Both, were waJ king. v. Both
had been drinking freely, A man "who
traveled; witfe-the -tdrvithin "five miles
of Cooper's,- saythey quaircled with
each, other the whole time he wa3 with
them When they had approached
fwithin speaking distance of their home,
(thev lived in the same house. John be
ing married, Charles single), the wife of
John heard a noise as of cattle , running,
and opening the door, heard the voice
of her husband pleading with his broth
er not to stab him- ' She ran out scream
ing, but before site-reached her husband
he was on the ground in the agonies of
death. HerscreamB brought neighbors
to the spot, who assisted in bearing the
wounded man to the house, but he was
dead when borne through the door.
, The brother, in explanation of the
stabbingrsaid that his brotherwas walk
ing along whittling one of the standards
of the wagon, and tripping his toe, fell,
and the open knife pierced hia heart.

Charles York was arrested yesterday,
and . is now held .under a strong guard,
awaiting the result of the jury ot inquest.
Uri VVatson empanelled tle iury. yes
terday and opened tho investigation at
once. - Our last information is that the
jury is still engaged in its labors. The
evidence so far seems to develop ths
fact of a murder committed. ' The de
ceased bad a knife cut which passed
through the heart, . and his . coat was
gashed with -a knife in several places,
disproving he . suggestion of accident.
The inference is that it was murder com-!
mitted under the influence f liquor, to
which both brothers were addicted. 1 ; .
