- The people through o at the
county are much interested in the
present " mayoralty contest. If
they could vote there would be
no doubt about Mr. Vanclerf ord
receiving an overwhelming ma
jority. If the third term rule is
to be broken they feel that the
Democratic party will be, easily
defeated at the next county elec
tion,: When " any one man gets
above the laws and regulations of
the party it is but natural that
conservative persons become dis
gusted. During the last two weeks or
more, we have experienced a most
unusual sp9ll of weather for this
time of year, March was as gen
tle as October and as warm as
July. The flowers budded, bloom
ed and withered in the short peri
" od of a week. The high tempera
ture brought them forth very rap
idly and the heat and "dryness
caused them to pass away quickly.
This was followed Sunday by rain,
snow aud a freezing tempearture
which , destroyed considerable

urging mat iae ;.vy oiws-pfl par
doned, in tne course i tt nis re
marks the Judge, aecordine to a
Raleigh dfsnatch in the Concord
Times, ''emphasized the high po
sition and high character of men
signing. the petition for the pat-
don, urged the seven tv years of
their mother, that Mrs. Thomas
White is a physical wreck and
that the public is satisfied, etc."
This is all very well, no one can
object to Judge Montgomery doing
all he can for his clients. We,
with many others, feel strong
sympathy for the families of
Thomas and Charmers White, and
it is not at all pleasantvto con
template the deep sorrow of these
wives and the mother over the re
sult of the rash act of the two
men they certainly hold dear.
But there is another side to this
picture which should have been
held up to the gaze of .the Council
ot bcate at the same time ; per
haps it was, we do not know.
But it ought not to be forgotten
that Russell Sherrill had a moth
er, and that these two high-toned,
chivalrous gentlemen shot iim
; down before that mother's eyes,
and while she was pleading with
them, as only a mother can plead,
to spare hislife. Is this mother
to have no svmDathv: must her
anguish be overlooked and passed
by as not worthy of comment?
1 his feature of the tragedy is the
blackest, the -most horrible one
connected with it. Could the sort
of men their friends claim ,the
Whites are have killed this boy in
the presence of his mother while
she was begging 'for his life? Such
a thing is lnconceivaoie, it is not
with in thA bonds of reason to evun
dream of it. In this county
where all the facts and circum-
stances oi tne wageay are Dest
known, there was.a ; strong senti
ment against this pardon being
granted, the gen eral opin ion being
that the. Whites escaped lightly
and deserved .to serve their sen-1 white children in. the factories,
