who fought and died that our belov

is,<to meet the remains at the Station

lie in state over night In the room
where in they first took Tip their' ob

EXTRA SESSION OF >". C. LKGIS
Raleigh. March 29. ? Extra session
talk enough amonfi regular members
ot' the late general assembly was
heard here today to inspre prophecy
iL Govt'iiiur 3rprriaoii 55SG5 take
it as a personal affront.
The governor is responsible lor
none of It, but the eight assembly
members who were spotted in the
hoiuia todaj btrilivfe thjji it is sure, to
come. They are confident that nei
rlher roads nor taxes can budge wlth
1 out snnpi^nmnr-iry ? lugiolaHon .
Some of them came here to taHt to
the Supreme eoiirt, others to bey tor
? ? ?
Watts, still others to appeal for M&x->
well, and perhaps some of them just
to see the ? town J- Some the visi
tors are confident that the special
+sesstoir must, be held and that if it is
not done not a road bond can be sold.
None of them talked for publicati
on, but hone ot them had the slights
est hostility to Governor Morrison.
The governor hasn't a better friend
than Representative Paul Grady, of
Johnston county, the debt-froest peo
ple In the state. Until they recently
sold courthouse bonds at a premium
they hadn't a cent of bonded indebt
edness. They are flat bnt unafraid.
Mr. Grady sees no way to avoid the
session. He Is a youngster who
hasn't the Harry Stubbs habit ? com
ing every year all one s natural life.
He will not come until summoned.
But Grady sees no hope. He does
not believe It possible to raise the
revenue necessary without a proper
ty tax. and he understands perfectly
the possibility of raising the money
in flash times without this tax. He
does not believe the bonds can be
sold and the millions lifted without
tax. His people, so free from debt,
are "broke" as he says.
Representative Everett, ot Durhiuiii
was here today, too. He Isn't look
ing tor legislative troubles? he is
trying to make cotton farmers feel
their power. He Is going abroad.
He Introduced the cotton resolution
under which the cotton commission
was created. He is Interested In
learning something of world-market
conditions and he gpes hence to hear.
An extra session may find Mm rum
maging about in Europe among :
milled cats and has-been kings.
But Everett has felt the baek-l
beck-fire . The more he gets ?w
from Raleigh the more he thinks that
the general assembly, of which he
was not an Inconsequential part,
kblundered in putting all the road bar
dens on the automobiles and laying
little or none on the property that th
ese turnpikes will enrich. He l>|rt?
it cannot be defended in any moral
