Still After Holt's
AH Durham is still stirred on
account of the terrible assassina
tion of Engineer Holt. Every ef
fort is being made to get the guil
ty parties. It is said that big re
wards are now being offered and
that the Governor has been asked
to offer a reward of $400. The
Brotherhood! is coming across with
a reward. The Southern will as
sist in it. There will certainly be
a reward from the Governor and
today petitions are being sent by
the railroad men to the city and
county officials asking that a re
wards be offered. It is certain
that the man or men who catch
the murderer of Fred Holt will
get more than a $1,000 reward.
There has been a story that the
city is filled with detectives. That
is true in a way. Of course there
are detectives at work on the job.
Detective Woodall was at work on
the job soon after the murder.
There is no doubt but that there
are special men here looking into
the matter. So far as known no
one has sent detectives here, al
though it is known that big re
wards are being prepared to be of
fered for the arrest and conviction
of the murderer, and that alone
might attract people to Durham.

Unusual Criminal Activity.
The officers of the law in and
around Greensboro have been un
usually busy during the past three
days, a score of crimnals, minus
one, having been placed behind
the bars of the Guilford county
jail being charged with crimes
ranging from assault with intent
to kill and highway tobbery to va
grancy. The cold weather is coming on
and there are always more crimes
commetted in - the winter than
during the summer months. Sev
eral reasons are given for this
state of affairs. The negroes are
pressed by cold and hunger more
in the winter than in the summer
and many of the lower class had
rather be in jail or on the roads
than not. They are- assured of
plenty to eat and a comfortable
fire which they possibly would not
have were'they not in confinment.
Anyway ths jail is filling at a rap
id rate andifihey continue to
come in as they have the first three
days of this wetk when court con
venes standing room Will be at a
premium at the county hotel.
There are now 42 awaiting trial,
four of these being white. Of the
negroes four are womem. Greens

A SuDject Which Needs Agitation.
That the American criminal law
has serious defects, and that if the
American people wish to rule they
must "thoroughly, rationally and
honestly recast the criminal law,"
were asserted by Attorney Gener
al C. J. Bonaparte, in an address
before the Natioual Hunicipa
League at Pittsburg a few days
ago. He declared that the gravest
and least excusable deficiency of
the criminal law is found in its
endless delays, and added that if
the people demand prompt and
unquestioning obedience to the
people's laws, and give to this de
mand an ample sanction in swift
sure and grievous retribution for
all rebellious to those laws, the
people's rule will be real.
"Why need there be a foretaste
of eternity," he asked, "between
rrest and indictment: another
between indictment and trial, and
yet another between trial and ac
tual punishment?" This he an
swered by declaring that it is part
ly "because the bench and profes
sional opinion among the bar tol
erate all kinds of dilatory, frivo
lous and often ridiculous proceed
ings on the part of unscrupulous
counsel, intended to cheat justice
of her plain due; partly because
our lawmakers anora almost in
finite facilities for review of judi
cial action to the criminal, al
though being stingy in allowing
them to the government: but
mainly because our laws show lit
tie eensejof the value to society of
a speedy administration of jus
More Burglars Abroad.
It may sound just a little' blood
mirety, dud au tne same it seems
evident that householders in the
city will bekforced to resort to the
most extreme- measures in order
to protect themselves. If these
measures should result in some
coroner's inquests, so much the
better Monday evening shortly
after 7 o'clock a man attempted
to effect an entrance to the house
of J. K. Link by forcing a rear
door. Being unable to do this he
deliberately climbed a tree and
got on the roof and then tried to
break in through a window. Mr.
Link was not at home but Mrs.
Link was, and the. house was,
lighted up as usual. She secured
her pistol and opened fire on the
intruder who made a hasty escape.
The racket brought out Mrs. J. BO
Maupin, who lives next door and
haviDg her pistol with her she
joined in the fusilade. So far as
known the burglar was uninjured.
Officers who who took hold of the
case were unable to get any trace
of the man.
How far Should a Lawyer go?
We do not know how much lati
tude the ethical code gives lawyers
in the conduct of cases. But it
does seem that in a crimnal case
when a man's guilt is clearly es
tablished and twelve, honest and
honorable men say that the de
fendant is guilty,, that it should
pass at that. But when an attor
ney takes, advantage of every tech
nicality to clear a guilty man he
is an accessory after the fact and
a very undesirable citizen. Spar

Mich. Several years ago, Charles
and Joseph Smith, brothers, un
fortunately fell in love with the
same woman. It is. j resumed

international marriage at the
time and overlooked the Michigan
affair. Of course, a heart trage

then and was accepted. In- the
course of time, Charles' wife died
and the love between Charles
and his brother's wife, was rekin
dled. They eloped; Joseph, in
his first auger, swere; out warrants
for the couple's arrest. Later,
coming to think the ; matter over
calmly, he decide! that he did
not care to prosecute,! He eo in

declined to release ttie prisoners.
However, he gave the teys of the
ceils to Joseph and remarked that
he was going dwn the street for
a few minutes. Joseph walked to
the door of the cell occupied by
his wife, unlocked it aiid threw it
open. "1 am opening this door
so that you may go where you
please," he said to his wife. "I
am glad to get out," the wife re
plied, "but 1 love Charley and I
will go with him. :' The wife
then accompanied her husbund
to his brother's cell. The men
stared at one another for a mo

Joseph said : "I am-going to let

The Roman Catholic church
must always be'the most impor-
ant influence for the uplifting of
the Filipino people." The man
who'' made that statement has
spent years in"' the Philppiue Is
lands, and has had abundant ; op
portunity to- know much upl if t the
Roman Catholic church has given
those islands during the four cen
turies "of j the dominance. Not
only that, but the man who made
that statement heard the sworn
testimony of. scores of witnesses
givenbefore thfr com mission ap
pointed by our government to in
vestigate ecclesiastical conditions
in the Philippines. He helped
conduct the protracted examina
tion of these wittnesses. He
questioned them touching the
morals of the friars and the
nriests. and he heard these wit-
nesses swear, day - by day, with
monotonous uniformity of testi
monv that these religious leaders
of the Roman Catholic church in
Philippine Islands were degener
ate, degraded and profligate to a
degree that makes one blush for
The distinguished gentleman
who made the remaik which
stands ai the head of the article
transmitted the tesimony taken
by the commission, with his re
port as Secretary of War, to the
home government. In response
to a resolution of the Senate
President McKinley laid this tes
timony before the Senate. It was
nrinted in Document No. 190 of
the 56th Congress, second session
We shall have to refer our readers
to this document. The testi
mony, dealing with the morals of
friarB and priests, is too indecent
to print. When one of the wit
neeseB, Suraio Laktaw, was asked
in regard to his knowledce of the
friars, he said: "I think I am in
position to know more about them
than auy other Filipino, becaus
through my position as teacher '.
was brought in constant contac
with them." To the question
"What do vbu know as of the
morality of the friars?" he repli
ed: "I would prefer to answer the
question by sayingjjthat thenletails
of the immorality of the friars are
so base and so indecent tiat in
stead of smirching the friars
would smirch myself by relating
them." Other witnesses, includ
ing lawyers and physicians, did
not hold themselves under such
restraint, and consequently gave
to the commission a volume of in
formation which, if testimony
taken under oath can prove any
thing, proves that if the Filipino
people are never uplifted unti
the Koman (JathoJic church up

all eternity will be too short
for the completion of the task.
The information given to the
commission was heard by the dis
tinguished gentleman who made
the remark on which we are com-
r en ting; it all passed through
his hands; and we may safely say
that there are few, it any persons
in the United States who are bet
ter acquainted than he with the
loathsome condition oL morals
which prevailed in the Roman
Catholic church in the Philippines
when those islands c.amei nto our

Frightened to Death.
Three-year-old Effie Rossman
and her sister Mary were playing
in the back yard with their little
brother Charlie. They heard their
father call to them and ran to
meet him, calling childish greet
ings as they ran.
Right in Effie's way stood her
father's horse, hidden in the dusk.'
She was almost upon him before
she saw him looming up before
her, and, as she tried to pass him
the great hoof was raised. Call
ing on her sister, to sayo her she
fell headlong at her papa's feet as
he entered the gato.
The father raised the child in
his arms and bore her into her
mother's room and laid heron the
bed, while the doctors came. Un
til midnight they worked with
her, when she passed away as
peacefully as if she were failing
into childish slumber.
Then it was found that she was
unmarked. She had been un
touched by the horse's hoofs and
had just been frightened mecg
than the little heart already taxed
by her play, could bear. San An
