Winston, N. C, Nov. 26. Jailor Da

arrested a negro named Bowen at
Mount Airy, who stands charged with
criminally assaultinga white girl at
Wythev'lle about four months ago. Not
being able to reach home that day, the
jailor brought his prisoner to Wineton
to spend the night. He left here to
day for home but stated that he had
fears Bowen would be taken from him
and lynched before he reached Wythe
ville. He has no doubt about the ne
gro being guilty. The citizens of the
town are still terribly wrought up
over the crime.

reference to the attairs of the bank.
They claim that they are prepared to
show that there was no criminal in

bank and the failure ot the bank is
due to tbe depreciation of prices of
property, as a consequence of the re

they are prepared to show that tbe of

money as a result of the different in
vestments which they have made, but
have wrecked their fortunes in tbe
attempt to save the bank; and while

JOHN EVANS GETS A RESPITE.
The Governor and Council of Btate Con
oil on tbe Matter Reasons for Grant-
ine council of State met l&tt
week to consider what should be done
regarding John Evans. All petitions
ana atlidavits were laid before the
council by the Governor and there
As a result of the conference, the
Governor respites Evans until January
The Governor gives the following
reasons ior respiting r:vans: "Tne
case demands serious and thoughtful
nvestigation. Out of four other like
cases that have occurred in this State
during this year, one of the culprits
escaped before arrest, two were banged
oy tne courts and one by a mob. In
tne two convictions tnere was no rea
sonable doubt of guilt and tbe proba
bilities are that tbe mob got the right
man. Here comes a case where a
friendless wretch has been put on trial
n a community revered with excite
ment and indignation, justly aroused
by the commissson of a crime for which
the perpetrator ought to suffer death.
There were excellent men on the jury,
Due no jury can expect to deliberate
and coolly weigh evidence uninfluenc
ed by the spirit pervading the com
munity. It is possible that a jury of
like character in a different community
would have rendered a different ver
dict upon this same evidence, and it
remains to be seen whether the jurors
in tnis case may not cnange their op
inion upon mature consideration, un
der quieter circumstances. Evidence
directly material to the prisoner's guilt
has been produced since the trial. It is
urged that the identification of the
prisoner was incomplete and unsatis
factory; that an alibi was completely
proven by witnesses of both races, and
that the admitted facts of the case
strongly indicated that the perpetra
tor of the crime was familiar with the
habits of the prosecutrix in walking
along that certain path, and at that
certain hour when the crime was com
mitted; that the prisoner could not
have known these things because he
was virtually a stranger in town; that
he had only been there once inside of
a year and hence it is most unlikely
that he should have known the prose
cutrix or been familiar with her habits.
As to the truth of these allegations,
no opinion is expressed, but they
come from sources s worthy of con
sideration as to demand time for close
scrutiny and thoughtful investigation.
It further appears from documentary
evidence that there is a sentiment to
the effect that aside from the guilt or
innocence of this. prisoner, it would be
best for the county that the sentence
of the court be at once executed. This
sentence cannot be prevailing among
just or Christian people except as a re
sult of temporary ebullition of passions,
provoked by frightful outrages, in
granting a postponement of this exe
cution, tbe executive is sustained by
the Council of State, by prominent citi
zens of Richmond county and various
other counties, by intelligent clergy
men and eminent lawyers and editors,
and for the further consideration of
this case he evoked the advice of the
educated, substantia), religious and
law-abiding elements of the State."

A Goldtboro correspondent of ih
Raleigh News aad Observer says:
"A gentleman from Goldsboro in
forms me that the statement in tbe
News and Observer of Tuesday that
Judge Robinson applied to Colonel
Andrews for a pass to bring some
one to Raleigh after his charge to
the grand jury, does Judge Robinson
id justice, and I know the News and
Observer will be glad to print the cir
cumstances which doubtless gave
rise to the report. It seems that
while Judge Robinson was holdisg
court in Swain last summer, a party,
who was committed to jail in default
of giving bond for bis appearance at
the Federal Court at AsheTiHe. had
an action pending against ihe South
ern Railway for damages for killing
his horse, and was brought from jail
to have his action tried. The jury
returned a verdict in favor of the
plaintiff, whieh was set aside by the
judge. The plaintiff was in such bad
condition physically that be excited
the sympathy of Judge Robinson,
and he went to the Commissioners
and signed his bond for his appear
ance at Asheville. He then told Mr.
George Bason and Mr. A. B. An
drews, Jr., who were the counsel
present representing the railroad,
what he had done, and that although
he was not entitled to recover dama
ges for the killing of his horse, the
fact was that his horse had been
killed by the railroad, and it ought
to furnish him a pass to go to Ashe
ville, which they agreed should be
done. While in Raleigh holding
court, and after his charge to the
grand jury, he reminded Mr. A. B.
Andrews, Jr., of these circumstances
and asked him if he had sent the

Liwiston, Me., Nov. 24. The
Lewiston Evening Journal, the or

says editorially :
Much as every true friend of
American interests may deprecate it,
it may now be regarded as settled
that the Congressional campaign of
next year must be fought out on the
line of lsDo. When a mate use
Keirtucky turns its back on Carlisle
to follow Bryan, and a State like Ne
braska, which, sees Detore its eyes in
every market the refutation of the
Bryan theory that silver and wheat
are linked together by the Almighty,
still persists in bowing down to the
silt or idol, it is useless for sound
monev men to lose sight of the cer
tainty that the 16 to 1 silver fallacy
is onlv scotched not buried. .Busi
ness men may as well prepare to
to net this issue next year, when we
hope it will be settled forever.''
Democratic Republican Fusion Proposed.
Some worthy gentlemen who fb not
see things from tbe vantage ground of
a newspaper editor with bis exchanges
from all sections of the State, or who
lack experience in public life, may be
disposed to think that the pictures the
Isryanites have drawn ot tne sinister
designs of the Clevelandites upon tbe
Democratic party, are exaggerates
We have already copied tne declara
tion of tbe head organ of tbe Cleve
landites (which bolted the Democratic
tiches last year) that it was "settled"
that the campaign of next year was to
be run on State issues only or, as it
misnamed its anti-Democratic propo-r
sition, "straight. We have hereto
fore reproduced its magnanimous as
surance that its 500 "straight" Demo
crats would let by-gones be by-gones
in favor of the 145,000 crooked Demo
crats who voted for Bryan, if the two
most important planks favored by tbe
145,000 were abandoned. But we have
reserved to tne last, as a lanumara
from which we may measure the dis
tance we have travelled away from the
infamous proposal with which the en
emy inaugurated his uisioyai cam
paign, the following morceau. On the
12th of August the Raleigh correspon
dent of the Charlotte UDserver wroie
this in his letter published in that
paper's issue of the 136h of August :
'A aisunguisnea veteran xjvwwrav
declared to-day that he was really wil
ling to see now a fusion of Democrats
and Kepuoucans to uterany -wipe iue
Populists from the eartn."
A fusion 01 uemocrais anu nepuu-
licans "! Joining in with the Democ
racy's unrelenting enemy, who have
plundered .Norm uaronna wneutver
they had a chance and with whom we
have not one principle in common, so
that we might "wipe from the earth''
our former brethen with the vast
majority of whom we have everything
in common !
In all the hundred yearsjof its exis
tence, has such an infamous proposal
ever before been put before any portion
of the Democratic party?
Not one word or condemnation ac
companied this, either by the corres
pondent or by the newspaper. It is
unv wonder that this paper and its
correspondents or allies should, last
summer, have misled the State Com
mittee, at a critical juncture, with a
false presentation of public sentiment
so as to secure a reversal of the Com
mittee's intention to accept the Popu
list offer of State and county co-operation
for the saving of the State?
That rejected offer was our opportunity.
At first we

is for each County Business Agent,
