f To this contention the trustee replies:

Is so indefinite vague and uncertain in
its terms,; and so many errors appear upon
its face as to make it impossible for him to
make : such disbursments without doing

audi that "his presenl:ftond; is,; amply good

. It-appears from the record, in this cause
that the Jones-Boone award was confirmed
b. Starbuck, judge, spring term, 185, su
perior court Haywood county. This Judg
ment was regular, vide iHenry vs. Hilliard,
120j N .C, page 499. It was expressly
stated in the order of Judge Starbuck con
Jlrmlng the award , that it was made by
consent of all parties, including Gilmer,
trustee. It further appears .- that' it - was
not until the 7th of January, 1896, that
Gilmer, trustee, discovered that 'the a
ward was uncertain and. that the arbitra
tors had" exceeded "their authority, and
asked that it be set aside, the reasons be
ing fully, set out in his affidavit filed 6f that
date. This motion was refused by Tim'bar
lake, judge, -and from this judgment Gil
mer, trustee, appealed, and though the ap -peal
was perfected and -docketed., in ,rihe
supreme court, for some cause it was not
prosecuted, out was dismissed on motion
of counsel for Mrs.' M. E. Hilliard. Sub
seciuentiy the motion to set ' aside the' a
ward was renewed before Wyan judge- and
the judgment of Starouok, -jufigeconfirm-ing
the award of Boone : and -Jones, was
vacated, set aside and annul ed as .to the

confirming the award, was reversed, a pe-
tltien was filed by Girmer;, trustee, ifl the
superior court, Haywood county, asking
the court for construction of the Jones-
Boone award. Practically it, was.. the same
motion . that was made before Timoerlake,
judge, - and . It appears to have been - con
tinued and to have gradually merged into
the motion, to vacate, set aside and annul

Judge Bryait Is not .this matter res
lake, judge, " that the award of ones and
Boon- was so vague and uncertain as to
make it 'unsafe for trustee to disburse any
f u-nds under the said award,-and that gross
injustice would be done the parties if
suteh disbursements were made, vide affi
davit -R. D. Gilmer. Jas. R. Thomas and
other cestul-qui'triists filed in proceedings
before Timherlake judge. But taie. mo
tioa to vacate . the award for vagueness
and uncertainty was refused and that an
appeal ? was" taken from that decision to
the" supreme court. It appears, that it was
not" prosecuted - to a conculsion oy trustee.
Had it been 4one so perhaps it would not
have iSjeen necessary for this . proceeding
to have been instituted. The motion to an
nul and vacate the award Ws again re
newed before -Bryan, judge, this time by
L. 'M. Welcii and othf cestui-qui-trusts,
and again it was alleged , on affidavit by
Gilmer, trustee that the award was vague
and uncertain in its terms, and that so
many apparent contradictions and gross
errors appeared on its face as to make it
unintelligible and unsafe for him as a
trustee to make any disbursements there
under. ; This affidavit was supplemented
by affidavits of J. C. Welch, guardian R.
D. Welch. L. iM. Welch and D. L. !Lpve,
each affidavit alleging vagueness and un
certainty- in -the award. On these af
fidavits Judge Bryan, as above stated, set
aside the award. In so far as the
petitioners were concerned, the supreme
court in reversing his judgment alluding
to the Jones-Boone award and its confirma
tion 'by consent by Starfruck, Judge, says:
"It Is not necessary, that the arbitrators
shall decide or undertake to decide a7
matter before them according to law. Jt
is said ; thev are a la-w unto themselves.
OsoorneVs. Calvert, 83 N. C., 365, nor is it
necessary that they set. out the facts upon
which they base bheir findings or assign
any reasons for their findings. It is said it
is best f they should not do so. Henry vs
Hilliard, . 120 N. Ci-479. . To set aside an
award It mut appear -that there has been
fraud, undue in fiuen'ce, or some improper
conduct on the part of the arbitrators
;No such' allegations are made here, or if
they are nothing-of the kind is found by
the Judge who set aside the' judgment.''
iHeiTry vs. Billiard, 120 1ST.. C, ,473., In
arbitrators are no more bound to go into
particulars and assign reasons for their a
ward than a jury is for their verdict." In
Eaton vs. Eaton Re., Eq., vol. 8. Judge
Pearson; delivering the opinion of the
court, says, A1 mistake committed by an
arbitrator is not of -itself sufficient ground
to set a side the award. If an arbitrator
makes, a mistake either as to law or fact
it is themisfbrtune o f the party and there
is no help tfor it. There is no right of ap
peal and this court has no power to re
verse the decision of the judges who are of
the parties own .choosing." if
mistakes be sufficient "grounds for setting
aside an award it opens the door i'or com
ing into court in almost every -case, for
in nine case out of ten some mistake
either of law or fact may be suggested by
the dissatisfied party.". In. Lutz vb.
Lithicum, U. S. supreme court -reports,
8 Peters 171, Justice Story says, in deliv
ering the opinion, "It is said that the
award- is uncertain. The objection is ill
founded and the award must be confirmed.
If " an award be good in part and bad n
part and that part which is Tad "be not with
in the submission it shall not invalidate
that which is good within the submission."
. Watson on Arbitrators, 135, Kyd on A
wards, 244. Even admitting that there ar
errors and irregularities in the award of
IMessrs. Jones and Boone, I -am clearly of
the opinion that this matter is res judi
cata, and that there can be no valid reason
why the trustee should not at once dis
burse the funds in his hands to his cestui-qui-trusts
under the Jones-Boone award.
.Courts of justice afford large and reason
able . oportunity to litigants to nave their
rights and controversies cognizable in them
and. settled according to law.. But it is a
wise, just and " essential principle of the
law that there must be an end to every lit
igation. It would give rise to universal dis
turbance, . endless strife and contf usion if
records of judgments were at all times and
individually under the control of the
courts to the extent that .they might for
one cause and another,, or in their arbi
trary discretion modify or change them.
With such a power in tihe courts 'a liti
gant would never be. sure that his rights
were settled. . That law suits should be
ended In 'order Of judicial procedure is es
sential to the. stability of government and
the good order and well toeing of estate.
In. this conclusion it must .."be borne - in
mind that Mrs.. Hilliard and ..the heirs of
S. L. 'Love, deoeased, - petitioners in this
proceeding; ""insist that the award ;is per
fectly intelligible, and that the trustee
could easily make calculations showing
what- amount is due to each of thefoestui-qui-trusts
if he -desires to do so. Mr. W.
W Jones,: an ' experienced and : aWe lawyer
of the' Ashevine .bar, was one. of the' ar-.
"bitrators in the case under consideration.
In "his affidavit filed and read before Judge
Bryan he says, "It is impossible and im
practicable for . affiant to - enter into details
of. -the various calculations v arid evidence
toy which they " arrive at their conclusion
owing to the. greatness of the. same.' But
the said award shows the -basis and1 the
result of the Conclusion arrived at by him
self and the said - Boone, his co-arbitrator,
and from. it they believe any man of ordi
nary Intelligence can by a simple mathe
matical calculation ascertain definitely - the
exact amount to whlcli each of the parties
are entitled - out Jof the funds in controver
sy,' and ' .that the affiant believes that the
exhibit hereto, attached will clearly dem

Col. John Ikxnald -Cameron ,'the veteran
journalist, after suffering from" ill health
for more than four; years, died yesterday
at his home, t'he Villa, on -Haywood street.
The end came at 8:55 o'clock.- The news of
Col. Cameron's death will bring sorrow to
a host of the (friends of a man who, in the
newspaper profession in this state, was its
motst conspicuous representative for many
years. The greater part of his life was
spent in "the use of his able mind : and ready
"pea ia' h-Work, of assisUhg-tbe-materiAl

"Col. Cameron was a man 'of principle
and a gentleman in the best acceptance of
the term. Though very positive in his
convictions, was not hrash or uncharitable
in his criticisms. Those who differed from

personal friendships were many.
Col. jCameron was 77 years old on the
