STATE REFORMATORY FOK YOUNG CRIM
INALS. Dr. Hufham offered the following
"Whereas, The prison system of
the State classes all convicts together,
making do discrimination between
young and old criminals; hardened
offenders and such as bave just enter
ed on a career of crime, therefore,
"Resolved, That patriotism, humanity
and justice require, that there should
be discrimination and classification
in all these things.
"Resolved, That in the judgment of
this body a reformatory for youthful
criminals should be established at an
early day." The resolution was adopt
ed. OPPOSED TO STATE AID.
Rev. L. Johnson, of Greensboro, read
the following resolution :
"Whereas, -The State aid to higher
education by taxation is wrong against
the whole people, who cannot receive
the benefit of such opportunities ; un
just to the private and the corporate
and denominational institutions vol
untarily supported; unwise because
the people of North Carolina are now
inadequately provided witn pumic
schools for their children and need
every cent of their taxes that can be
spared for that purpose ;
"Resolved, tnereiore. 'mat tne .Bap
tist State Convention of North Caro
lina re-affirm its opposition to State
aid by taxation to higher education."
After this bad been read Prof. J. w.
Gore, of Chapel Hill, arose and signi
fied his opposition to the resolution.
This is the thing the people nave
been looking for, as it is understood, in
view of the fact that there are lou
Baptists in the next legislature, that
what is done here by the Convention
will doubtless be carried out by tne
General Assembly. Prof. Gore said
that the Convention assembled to do
the Master's work should not take up
this State aid question unless there
was a moral question concerned. He
said: "You ought to adjourn as a
Baptist assembly and then hold a
meeting as citizens and then memoria
lize the legislature, if you will.
Would you want to agitate this matter
if you had no Wake t orestf "
The previous question was cauea,
and as there was a division it called
for a count. When the vote was taken
it was found that the motion had car

Asheville, N. C, Nov. 1G, '90.
Please allow ra spae to repudiate
an interview published in the News
and Observer, November 15th, and
headed, "Pearson Makes Fun of
Pops." Pait of this interview i
evolved from the jaded imagination
of the reporter, and the rest of it de
pends upon ms aetectiVH memory I
unsupported by note?.
He prints in the "orati a recta"
nearly a column of alleged slurs and
sneers, which have no better founda
tion than the mists and vapors
of the disturbed fancy of one of the
historians of the last legislature.
With the old members of the last
legislature, the authors of that noto
rious history, are sufficiently discred
ited: to toe new members I would
respectfully suggest that no public
man is secure in having any conver
sation whatever with the chief wri
ters and reporters of the News and
Observer. They seem fatal ly prone
to tell only enough truth to make
that little misleading.
