The Western Division.
A liailroad Case Carried up to the Supreme
The writ of error sued out by W. W. Rol
lins, president of the Western Division of
the Western North Carolina Railroad com
pany, mention of which was made in the
Observer a few days since, was yesterday
perfected by the execution of the proper
bond, when the writ was signed by Chie
The errors alleged as. grounds of appeal
raise the question of the constitutionality
of the sections of the repealing act of March
13, 1879, which transfeted the property and
assets of the repealed company to the West
em North Carolina Railroad company. Af
ter reciting the formal parts of the writ, it
assigns the following specific errors :
Wherein, by an act of the General Assem
bly, ratified March 13, j 1879, entitled "An
act to repeal any and all acts creating, re
cognizing or keeping in existence the West
ern Division of the Western North Carolina
Railroad Company," thereby purports tore
peal an act entitled "An act to amend the
charter of the Western North Carolina Rail
road Company," ratified August 19th, 1868
and especially the 6th section thereof, which
creates a contract between stockholders
. 2. Wherein, by the second section of said
act, ratified March 13 1879, purporting to
repeal the acts creating the said Western
Division of the Western North Carolina
Railroad Company, "all the property rights,
credits, rights of action, etc., of the said
Western Division, now existing, or which
may result from any existing matters, caus
es, circumstances or contingencies, shall be
come absolutely the rights and property of
the Western North Carolina Railroad Com
3. Wherein, by the third section of said
act of March 13, 1379, it is therein further
provided and commanded "that all persons
who are now or have been acting or assum
mg to act as officers, directors, agents and
attorneys of said Western Division of said
Western North Carolina Railroad Company,
shall, within thirty days after demand upon
them by the Governor of the State, turn
over and deliver to the lmard of directors
of the Western Division of the Western
North Carolina Railroad Company all books,
records, moneys, bonds and evidences of
debt which may be in their possession or
within their control ; and that upon their
failure or refusal to do so shall be deemed
guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon convic
tioa thereof shall be fined not less than five
hundred dollars, or imprisoned, in the dis
cretion of the court."!
Which said act and the several sections
thereof are alleged tp be repugnant to and
in violation of the constitution of the Unit
ed States wliich prohibit such legislation
"as impairs the obligation of contracts,'
such as deprives a person of "his property
without due process of law." Nevertheless

Gov. Vance Makes a Speech on the
Cor. RlctiHond pispatca.'
Wasiiixgtox, April 89,-r-The Repub
licans were not ready to speak this after
noon in the Rellog case1 and Gov. Vauce
took the floor and made an interesting
and argumentative speech in favor of un
seating Kellogg and seating Spofford, as
proposed by the elections committee. He
said that, as usual, the Republicans went
over the fight not with stars and stripes,
or a banner on which j is inscribed th
lily of France, the double eagle of Prus
sia, or the lion of Great! Britain, but with
a sanguinary shirtpn which is written
res adjudicata. They charge that the Denv
ocrats aie about to perpetrate a great
crime because they want to purge the
Senate of members who have been seated
in violatiou of the constitution and the
laws. He was reminded of a case iu which
a man who stole a horse became a perse
cuted saint, while the uufortuuate owner
of the horse became the crimiual. Gov.
Vance reviewed the testimony with strik
ing effect, and his comments ou witnesses
who held several offices were characteris
tic and sometimes very amusing. A num
ber of members of the House from the
South were on the floor of the Senate
while he was speaking. Without conclu
ding he ave way to a motion to adjourn
at 350 o'clock, wheu the Senate adjourn
ed until Mouday.
Kemble is in jail, but J. Madison Wells
who stole the office of Presideut of the
United States, is hanging around 'Wash
ington endeavoring to induce a Demo
cratic Senate to confirm his corrupt bar
gains with R. B. Hayes.
Kemble, for corrupt solicitation of a
few Legislators, is hard at work in the
penitentiary, but R. B. Hayes, who, with
a few Louisana and Florida thieves chea
ted four millions of electors of their votes
is seated in the executive chair, and so
dispense his favors as to protect and re
ward his guilty associates.

citizens of Pennsylvania out of a little
money, while Mr. Hayes conspirited to

Mr. Noyes, of Ohio, for succcssfullv
corrupting Dennis, McLin, and Cowgill,
three election offices of the State of Flor
ida, was eutj by Mr. Hayes as a Minister
to France. Kemble, for a much more in
significant crime, is sent tojail.
Every thief who helped Mr. Hayes
steal the Presidency, has been sentenced
to a fat office, while every man connected
with Kemble has been sentenced to a
year's solitary confinement in the peni
tentiary. AViy should Mr. Hayes be in
the White House, Mr. John Sherman at
the head of the treasury department, Mr,
Noyes in Paris, J. Madison, Wells, at

The Chinese and the Fourteenth
Amexdmext.-J New York, May 3. A
San Francisco special says a recent decis
ion of Judges Sawyer and Hoffman iu the
Tiburcio-Parrott case, isthat the 14th
amendment covered the Chinese with the
protection of this government, even if no
treaty existed with the Chinese govern
ment. Members of the Chinese consulate
there are perfectly indifferent to any
thing the newly appointed minister and
commissioner may seek to effect in modi
fying any portion of- the Burlingame
treaty. They are contented with the pro
tection in the 14th amendment, and re
gard the mission to the Celestial empire
now as a tool's errand.
