about town who is in trouble oftener

asked Smith to sell him a cigar on credit.
Knowing Sandy's failure to pay lor
anything which he could obtain without

became very much incensed at Smith's
declination to sell him the cigar, and set

IIh Owner TellH The Citizen Whv
the I'oHtollice Will Not be Loca
ted on IIIn l'roperty The Rent
Offered Futirely Too Low.
A CrnziiN representative yesterday
afternoon learned from ex-Mayor Har
kins that he had positively refused to
rent his new building on I'atton avenue
to the government as a site for the loca
tion ot the city iinslollicc.
The reason for this refusal is based
upon the tact that the government is
willing to pay Mr. Marking only $4(10
er year lor the use ol his handsome
brick and granite structure; and the ex
mayor is not built in a way that war
rants him iu furnishing free buildings for
t'nitcd States pnstolliecs at this iiartieu-
ar season of the year. Therefore, he
leclined to consider Ihcin iiuilicentoMcrof
I'ncleSain, and the whole thing is de
Hesides, Mr. Markins has already
about concluded a contract lo rent the
same premises to a private individual
for .$75 per month, and if the postoMicc
is removed it wi!l not be found domiciled
on Mr. Markins' I'atton avenueirojK'rty
at a rental of $400 per year. His decis
ion iu tlie matter is absolutely final, and
1'iicle Sam will have to hunt sonic other
building in which to carry on the postal
branch of his business iu Ashevillc.
It is rum. ired that Mr. W. T. Reynolds
has offered one of the large store-rooms
in his handsome opera house building to
the government as a suitable site for the
location of the posloflicc, but as Till-:
Citizkx was unable to liud that gentle
men last evening, the truth or falsity of
such statement could not be directly
Iu the meanwhile, 14 Hendry block is
still vacant. It is a large andconyeniciit

A Noritanton Citizen Feels the In-
Hull to the I.aw.
In speaking of the unfortunate and
criminal lynching at Morirniiton last
week, we spoke as a law abiding citizen,
concerned at the contempt in which ihi-
the law had fallen, and earnestly desirous
that it should be brought back into its
regular, just and respected channel. We
were sure that our position would meet
the approbation of till judicious men, for
ill such must tremble at the peril that
menaces society if mob law be
countenanced, and if the lciral tribu
nals cease to be the resort for obtaining
justice or vindicating the powers of
the law nl the land.
We are happy to present the fnllnwing
emphatic and gratifying endorsement
of our position, written bv n inmwm
;entleinan of Morganton, who speaks
for himself, and we are glad to say, for
others, livery good citizen of every ti
lose gooil name is so grievously brought
in (picstion should make every effort to
make the repetition of such insults to
the law again impossible:

here this niorning by Mr. J. K. Kcrlcy, of
this place. Mr. K., is a man of good
reputation ami is entitled to credit. He
says, that lie found a snake of Ihecoppcr

hunling, and on killing said snake, he
found that it had hid away inside ol it,
thirty-seven live snakes, measuring about
seven inches in length, all of which lie
killed, making in all thirty-eight; and
using Mr. Kcrlcy 's language, "It wasnot
a very line day for killing snakes, ns it
was somewhat cloudy in the morning

my opinion, Kjg Tom will have to put up
