also speak shortly on the same side. This
bill, by the way, has received an amendment
since it was published. , Just before it was
introduced, Mr. J. S. Henderson, of Rowan,
had an interview with Mr. Best, during
which he induced him to withdraw the
clause exempting the property from taxa

committee. 1 I ' '
Of course it is impossible, as yet, to de
termine when the committee will make its
report, but very few are disposed to doubt
what that report will be, when it is made,
unless there are some very important devel
opments in relation to the proposed contract
with MrT Best within the next few days.

indeed most of the members of the Legis

Indeed it is understood that the fight will
be made in the coomittee room. Mr. Dortch's
speech is generally regarded as a very strong
one, but flic objection urged against it is
that his plan shown by his bill already
published is impracticable. "True Mr.
Dortch has shown us," said a member of the
committee, "that there are several very ser
ious objections to the sale of the property,
but what is he going to do with it ? ! Con

Jennie, however, was attractive in I Raleigh OUercer: Mr. W.J. Hicka, Su-
person well educated, and inherited perintendent of the Fenitentiary, nas paiu
a fortune through a Californa relative into the Treasury 1

about the State being able to make money
