Salisbury, N. C , Aug 8th , 1906.
The lynching of tb three ne
groes, alleged murderers of the
Lyerly family, here Monday night
is deplored by all good citizen?
throughout the State and par
ticularly in Salisbury and Rowan
county. The cruel and cowardly
murderers of the Lyerlys could
not have been dealt with too se
verely or too quickly, but after
they were in the hands of the law.
and the authorities were doing
everything possible for a proper
trial and a speedy execution of
justice, there was absolutely.no
excuse to add such horrible, sav
age butchery to the annals of
Rowan's history, her proud record
and fair name, and while we do
not believe any of the good,, law
abiding people hereabouts took
part, or in any way sanctioned
such conduct, they owed it to
themselves and to the supremacy
bf the law to have prevented it.
If the sheriff of the county hesi
. tated to deputize sufficient men
and properly protect the jail and
his prisoners, as he and his jailer
have failed three times in- sueces-

Rev. J. Q. Adams Resigns.
Rev. J, Q. Adams, who for the
past five years has been pastor of
the Pritchard Memorial Baptist
church, j in -Dilworth, last night
tendered: his resignation as pas
tor of that church, effective eat
once. Dr. Adams has had this
step in contemplation for some
time past. At a meeting of the
deacons jyesterday afternoon he
announced his intention to resign,
which he did after the service last
night. While the church has not
yet taken any action in the mat
ter, Dr. Adams having intimated
that his decision was irrevocable.
Davidson County Pensioners.
In Davidson county there are
or were last year, -272 old, soldiers
and soldiers wives who draw pen
sions. They received a total of a
bout fifty three hundred dollars.
Of the old soldiers, there are 162.
Four of them are on the second
class, 18 f them on the third
class and 145 on the fourth class..
There are 105 "widows of soldiers.
Davidson is very well of, receiving
more money for pensions than
she pays out. But the veterans do
not get what they ought to. There
are a very few Confederates
left compared with the number
only a few. years ago, and the
State ought to largely increase the
pensions of those remaining.
Rapidly they are dying out and-
the day is not far distant whon
there will not be a Confederate
veteran in the . world. The junior
reserves, the youngest soldiers,
are all old men. now. Lexington
A woman worries until she gets
their services. But it is now too
late either to cry over spilt milk
or lock the door after the horse is
g6ne. Crime has been on the in
crease here for tha last six years ;
assaults, murders and lynchings
have come and gone so rapidly
that it has become a common oc
currence to read of such events.
Some of these have occurred un
der the eyes of t officers of the
law and in several cases they have
taken part. We have published
these things as they have occur

this latest crime is tha climax,
let us hope the destruction of , the
jail, the lynching of good men,"
find massacres are not yet to fol

not' crushed in its infancy, its
growth is sure and the increase
will spread over the entire coun
ty to the injury of the just as well
as the unjust. - Let the people

Killed His Companion.
Last Thursday afternoon, Ed.
Hamptonf a young negro, was
shot and instantly killed by a
negro companion named John
Brooks. Brooks left when he saw
Hampton drop, and made for the
woods, but that night he . was lo
cated by Chief Miller and Officers
Monroe and Wise, and arrested.
Brooks had a hearing before Esq.
Kesler Friday morning, and was
committed to jail without bail.
According to the story of some of
the witness to the tragedy, a lot
of negro boys and young men had
been in swimming in the Town
Creek: pool near the South Ward
boundary line ; that both Hamp
. ton and Brooks were armed. They
were daring each other to shoot!
Hampton threatened to shoot
Brooks and the later dared him to
do it. Then Hampton made a
similar aare, and Brooks shot, the
load entering Hampton's mouth
and going into the brain. Brooks
