-RADICAL ' EXTRAVAGANCE i IN t
. COUNTY AFFAIRS. ,
Let us turn again to Halifax coun
ty, and. the report of: the . Conigland
committee upon county finances. . i he
next thing they call attention ' to is
the rascality of the Board in the mat-
.ter of. interest on county : bonds. It
had been -decided that the county
-debts bore - interest only on demand
and at 6 per jent. But the Halifax
Board contracted at 8 per .cent. : The
I feport says: I 1 : - - -
and were a favorite investment with countv
ofneers, and on the levy of 1875 the sheriff,
wno was a special, pet or the. .Board, paid
almost all the county tax that he did pay
in mem.- v.
We come now to 7 examine n few
points presented ik . report that
concerns a Very richsention bf the
State. It will -. bo. remembered . that
in 1876 the Democrats .swept the
State! under Vance's ."splendid leader
ship. But still twenty-three couu
ties remained under negro control.
The report says: - - t
"They contained, in 1870; three tenths of
the population of the State, . and paid in
1879 two fifths of all the taxes collected by
the state. . Their condition m 1878 was
desperate.. . They -were taxed "to death;
they were deeply in debt; they .had almost
"gone to the dogs, a or county purposes
alone they paid in 1874, $419,220.83; in
1875, $388,358. 48j in 1876, $404,500.77." 4
Before doing anything else read
over that paragraph carefully again.
Here arc only twenty-three negro
ridden counties in 1879 three years
ago paying- actually -t, two dollars
in every five of the whole : taxes of
the State. -Remember; there are. 96
counties. Less than one fourth of the
96 paid two-fifths of the whole, -The
Conigland report shows that these
twenty-three counties paid, under
Radical rule Radical j extravagance,
Radical plundering, in- three years
one million two I hundred and
twelve thousand and seventy dollars.
This would . bave run the entire
State Government before the war
nearly or quite, an entire decade.1" ;
The Stab, was right when it told
its readers that the taxpayers were
much more concerned, as far as their
pockets rwere involved, in , having
honest, economical .county; govern
ment' than they were in having the
State 'government -honest and eco
nomical. It is county expenses that
burden and oppress under profligate
The Conigland report refers to the
changes wrought in favor of the tax
payers by the change to the present
system that the Radicals are clamor
ing to get rid of. They are demand
mg a . return to the very system by
which .these . twenty-three counties
were plundered, and m three years
only were made to pay $1,212,090.07
taxes rneariy; a million, and a - quar-'
ter dollars ; of taxes for county pur
poses alone. Remember these start
ling facts and figures, ye taxpayers.
We quote from the report: -; f ;
'.'The system of countv government was
changed,decent men were made magistrates,
tax-payers became tax-levyers.1 The result
is, that these counties are once more pros
perous, their debts paid off or in process of

payment, anu xneir taxes immensely, re
duced at the same time. We annex the list

of F, JO. Darby,'. Ei-Hli .ResIgniH
tion Accepted. r -
At anadjourned meeting of the-.&mnty
Democratic Executive" Committee, heldyest
terday evening," Chairman F. Darby
tendered his resignation, which was in terms
as follows ;, t k ' . z. ' . '' !
Gentlemen of ihe Democratic County Execu
tive Uommutee of JSew Hanover Vounty:
It is especially due to you my friends and
associates on this committee, with whom I
have been, .with 'great pleasure to myself,
and I am sure with entire confidence and
frankness on the part of us all, associated in
official position in the Democratic party,
that whatever action I should take, or reply
I .should make personally; in regard to the
rumored nomination oj inyseir (for"? x .nave
received nothing official or authoritative)
for the position of-Judge of - this Judicial
Uistrictj. should first pe made to you.- , I his
I conceive aa a matter, of propriety - is due
to you, and this I mustepnfess Xcheerf ully
and wuungiy conceae; - eveff tnose wno
have been the opponents of -our. committee
in the Democratic party, must acknowledge
that we have been faithful, energetic- and
aggressive, and, have striven by every
means in our power, ; consistent with the
laws of our country, and with the personal
integrity of each oius, to advance the out
posts of our party as far as possible in the
enemy's lines, never, allowing, ourselves to
compromise or pesmirk Democratic prin
ciples by the employment of any means for.
.their ; advancement - which would iiot- be
proper when applied for the advancement
of our personal ends with our fellow men.
.All the .more reason, therefore, why:, frank
ness should characterize this communica
tion in order that the honorable record our
committee has ( made, as well as that the
high personal and political integrity, of the
gentlemen, as a jresult of whose canvass we
were placed m our present position, snouid
not be questioned even by inference either
by my silence or my want of frankness, in
this matter. I .
First, then, utterly to my surprise, I was
some days ago informed by a gentleman, a
friend of mine, that I was about to be no
minated by the Liberal Convention a their
candidate for Judge of this Judicial Dis
trict. I promptly authorized the Stab and
liexiew to say that I would not accept the
nomination. , . Since then I have been relia
bly informed that that nomination has been
indorsed by the Republican State Conven
tion, and that I a resolution was thereby
adopted endorsing me as a life-long Demo
crat, requiring jj no sacrifice of my " well-
known Democratic pnnciples, but reciting
that the position of Judge being entirely
non-nartizan. thev had confidence in my
fairness and ability, believing that if elect
ed I would be a Judge without regard to
party. , Certainly not - even the most cap
tious could say , tnat i nave saia or aone
anything that bears the faintest impress of
compromising or giving up any principle
in any connection I have with this matter.
In answer, therefore, to the question, as to
whether or not I would serve in. such po
sition, if elected,! I answer unhesitatingly
that,- if elected on such a platform, my de
termination, (the result of my own delibe
rate conviction, unchanged and unchange
able), is that I will take the , oath oi office,
and serve to the . best of my ability, with
many misgivings: as to my capability aud
experience for filling the high and honora-.
ble office, but with absolutely no hesitation
as to it bemsr mv dutv to serve as a Juage
above and irrespective of party, and I
would sooner be defeated than say that I
would not run if elected under such cir
cumstances. -It would not be creditable to
anv member of a community or State, in
my opinion, where the bbhgationto per
form a public duty is a part of the alle
giance that the citizen owes to . tne govern
ment, when a call to perform a public duty
1 1 A 1
is made, unsolicited- ana unsougut, ami
comes, if it should come, without1 the
slightest compromise of honor or principle,
to say in. advance that he would not per
form such rmblic dntv. s
Again, if 1 am correctly lniormea. xne
platform of the convention above referred
to lava down tnis clause "a iree oauoiana
a fair count" as one of its principles, j I
certainly should be derelict to all the ideas
I have heretofore entertained or expect to
entertain of popular government, if I should
hesitate to say I am in complete accord
with that principle. The right of suffrage
is a : fundamental and necessary principle
of our government. It has been purchased
at the cost of millions of money and of the
blood of the fathers of the Republic, and
has been ' a ; Democratic- pnnciple. The
right of suffrage,; unless free,: with a count
f unquestioned Sntegrity,is simply a direct
contravention ana aeaiai oi a mnuameuuu
principle. To make a popular government
the ballot must pe tree ana tne count iair;
otherwise the government which is the re
sult of that ballot' will be the government
of force and fraud.
. Again,' another principle of the platform
is opposition to the county government.
T am and have been, as 1 is , by many well
known, opposed, to county government: ilt
is in direct and positive - contravention
of a cardinal principle of popular govern
ment: that is f local self eovernment,'
which has always been one of the leading
principles of "the 'Democratic party. To
tak the election of county officials away
from the people;: and put it in the hands of
the Legislature lis ? consulting expediency,
not beine euided bv principlclSuch action
on the part of our party justifies the other
extreme by the other partywhen in power,
which will end in a surrender of principle
on both sides, and . cause expediency to be
taken altogether; as a gmde, eventually leaa
insr oDDosine factions to break down prin
ciples that are the bulwarks of liberty, and
bringing us gradually to the disruption of
nodular crovemment. . There, seems to me
no difference in principle .-.between knock
ing a manriu the head because he can't be
controlled and annihilatineaTnajority be
cause it can't be! controlled. , There may be
abuses under the old. system that do not
exist under the 5 county . government, but
that is no reason why a grand principle
should be surrendered.
"Then, gentlemen, to put this matter en
tirely at rest,', reiterating my allegiance to
the general Democratic pnnciples, 1 consid
er it my duty, holding-the views that I do.
the result of deli Derate renecnon ana oi my
ideas of the eeneral ; principles of popular
crovernment. to say that,: while accepting no
nomination, if I am elected, and " so far as
this determination is concerned I care not
whether I am ot not, that I will serve to the
hest of mv abilitv. I will ask that my re
signation as Chairman and member of this
Committee be accepted. . . . " - .
Respectf ullv. with kind regards to each
of you individually and collectively,' : ;
. F. H. Dabby.
' On nlotion the resignation of Mr. Darby
was unanimously accepted. -
The Committee then arranged a call for a
Democratic County Convention, which will
he found eisewnere.

About to Flgnt a Duel.
The Greensboro Patriot has, under the
above head, the following' blood-curdling
item of. some interest to people hereabouts:

and 1,800 barrels' of rosin, valued at $17,-

A colored convict by the name of Levi,
Walker, sentenced at the late term of the;
ririmintil fVirlrt tn two vftnrs confinement
in the County House ; of Correction j, for;
false pretense, rnade his escape from that
institution a few days since, and is still
at large. It appears that Superintendent
Savage took five of the prisoners out to do
some work, placing two of them under a
reliable guard, armed with a six shooter.
with instructions to dp some ditching, and
taking the other three with him to another
part of the premises. - Pretty soon Walker
made some excuse to get from .under, the
immediate eye of the guard for a moment,
and the next instant he was flying through
the . thick undergrowth with almost ; the
speed of an antelope,- completely- baffling
the -efforts of the 'guard to halt him or
shoot him.;,f.The latter soon afterwards re
ported the escape to Superintendent Savage,1
who immediately took all the necessary
steps td insure his capture, himself remain
ing out during the entire preceding night
engaged id searching for the fugitive. The
last trace of him was lost at Little Bridge,'
where he was. reported as crossing in the
greatest hurry on the fallen timbers coming
in the direction of the city,
Superintendent Savage oilers a reward of
$10 tor tne capture ana connnement oi me
fugitive in some safe place where he can
get him. ; , - .
Tine Weather and tne Crops.
-We hear of u ; planter: in Bladen county
who lost his entire cotton crop from the ef
fects of the cool weather, and has replaced
it with corn. ,' Itt other' localities the cotton
has been badly ; stunted and is so small on
account of the cool and dry weather com
bined that it is almost impossible . to plow
it. A friend who .' has been - traveling re

ties, savs he has never ; known so r much
corn and potatoes to be planted in any one

therefore, that we shall haye enough to eat.

3 Twoerrors occurred in Mr. Darby's letter,
which we are reouested to correct. - In the
