during ithls., year,, one of the 5 culprits es

byHthe-"-court and one Jsy a mob. ' In the
twel 'convictions there was no reasonable
douibVof guilt and the probabilities are
that the mob -got the right man. Here
comes a case where a f rmedles wretch has
! been put on trial in a community fevered
with excitement amd indlenation iustlv a-
! roused by the commission of a crime for
which the perpetrator ought .to suffer death
Ihere were excellent men on the jury, but
no Jury can expect to deliberate and cooly
weigh evidence uninfluenced 'by the spirit
pervading the community. It is possible

rors in this Jase may not change v their
opinion uipon nua'tjure consideration, under
quieter circumstances. Evidence directly
material to the prisoner's guilt has been
produced since the trial. It is urged that
the -identlflcation of the 'prisoner was 4n-
i complete ana unsaxisracrory; -nnat an atim
that, certain) palth,(and at that certain hour
when .the crime was commi bted ; that the
prisoner could not have fenowmthese things
because he" was virtually a stranger In
town ; that he had only heen there once in
side of a' year and hence it is most unlike
ly 'that he should not have known he pros
ecutrix or. been fam-iliar wl'th her habits.
As to the Ttruth of these allegations, no o
pinion is, expressed, but they come from
sources so worthy of consideration as-, to
d'emaai'd time for close scrutiny and thouight
ful tovestigation. It -further appears from
documentary evidence that there is a sen
timent -to the effect that aside from the
guilt .or innocence of this prisoner, ft
wouMt'he.best'"for the county that .the
sentence, of the court be at once executed.
This sentence- cannot be prevailing among
Just , or Christian, people except as a result
of temporary ebullition of passions? pro
voked by .Mgh'tfuT outrages. In granting
a postponement of this execution, the ex
ecutive is .sustained! by -the council of the
s'taJte, ; by prominent citizens of .Richmond

tenigent'" clergymen; and! eminent .'lawyers
and editors,' and f or -the further coneldera-

Those who were on the streets after -11

than half of every cloudy nigh. Drivers
could not "keep. their carriages in the road,

Thanksgiving was not an entire success
from a weather standpoint, but. this did
not dieter Ashevilie people from' celebrating
the day in a fitting manner, or enjoying it
to the utmost.- Nearly, all the business
houses closed early in the day, and no one
begrudged the clerks and employes their
half holiday. Services were held' at most
of the churches,, where good congregations
assembled to give thanks. . , '
Undonbtedly the dinner was6ne of -the
main events of the day. Judging from the
