' The Grounds Upon Which Governor
Car r Appoints to the New Judgeships
Governor arr threw a bomb into
the Fusion camp yesterday,
When the Fnsionists abolished the
Criminal Court of New Hanover and
Mecklenburg, and the Criminal
Court of Buncombe, their object
was toTfhj out Democrats and give
places to the followers of Fusion.
So two new circuits were created,
Republicans and Populists .in joint
caocns nominated, and thd Legisla
ture elected Senator Charles A Cook,
of Warren, judge of the Eastern cir
cuit, and Representative H G Ewart,
of Haywood, judge of the Western
, circuit They considered the mat
ter settled, and the pieall ready for
-vGoyernor Carr has at one blow
knoc'&?d the pie out of their greedy
YeaJerday he announced that he
had appointed to preside over these
two pffCtrfts'Jpdge Olive. P Meares
for rtie Eastern and Judge Thomas
A Jones for the Western.
Fnsionists didn'Nltnow precisely
the meaning of this move. '
A reporter'saw Governor in his
office at the executive mansion on
The Goyernor was asked his rea
son for making the appointment
"It is the Governor's prerogative,"
he replied ; "this prerogative has
been infringed upon. I claim the
right to appointthese.oflicers.
The question is a constitutional
one, and.will no doubt be argued be
foae the Supreme Court.
The matter hinges on Section 30
of Article IV (Judical.Depirtment),
which reads as follows :
"Section 3i), In case the General
AssfmbW shall establish other
courts inferior to the Supe
rior Conrt, the presiding officer and
clerks thereof ;6hall be elected in
snch manner as the General Assem
bly may, from time to time, pre
scribe, and they shall hold their
offices for a term not exceeding eight
It is plain that the General As
sembly must fix the manner of elect
ing these officers.
But has it theright to fill the
vacancy nntil an election is held ?
It is the prerogative of the Gov
ernor to fill all vacancies by appoint
ment for the remainder of the term.
Only the Governor has this right.
The General Assembly has not
only fixed the manner and time of
the election, bnt has selected persons
to fill the vacancies '-until the elec
tion. In domgthis it has stepped
beyond its bounds, and has infringed
on the prerogative of the executive.
" And the Governor refuses to re
icqmsh his constitutional rihta.
Mr. G W Patterson receives state
ments every week from the New
York markets, and in Monday's sales
in the city of New York, we see
stated that 16,000 crates of eggs,
each crate containing 36 dozen, were
sold, making in all 576,000 dozn, or
6,912,000 eggs. Wednesday's Bales
amounted to 13,000 crates, or 4(58,
000 dozen. The price paid for
these f ggs was from 14 to 20 cents.
Isn't there more money in raising
chickens and selling eggs than there

At the graded school Wednesday
morning there seemed to be a little
break in the nsnal routine of affairs.
Two children became suddenly sick.
Little Miss Gyrtie Morton, in Miss

weak, and swooned. She had been
sick, but as she wanted to keep np
with her class, she would not miss
school a day. Her- fainting caused
a ripple of exeitein-nt in all the
rooms, and Little Miss Jaine Pat

THE LAST BLACK A.CT OF
SHAME IN THE HOUSE.
A Hurly Negro Doorkeeper Forcibly
Detains Representatives ofthe Peo
ple, Laying Hands on Them to
Prevent Their leaving tbe
Legislative : Hall Very
of the Peaee.
A most disgraceful and desperate
scene was enacted in the hall of the
House of Representatives last night,
A burly negro,apparently acting un
der the order of the Speaker, stood
at the inside door and held it fast
with both bands, refusing to allow
either ingress or egress. He was
acting as doorkeeper and his pur
pose was to prevent Democratic
members of the House from leaving
Capt. R B Peebles, member from
Northampton, and Mr. Lee, member
from Haywood, came to ;the door,
and finding their way barred by the
negro, demanded to be let out. The
negro refused, and a struggle ensued,
which came near prodncing a riot
Several negroes standing by rushed
to the assistance of the negro door
keeper, while other by-standers took
a hand in aid of Capt. Peebles and
Mr. Lee. About eight or en peo
ple became involved in a violent
struggle and surged back and forth
in the House, some trying to pull
Capt. Peebles back in, while others
tried to open the door and push him
on t. Fortunately the door flew open
aud he was released from his.po
Mtion. Hal not the struggle ter
in inated quickly, it is likely that a
a serious riot would have resulted.
Thus the record of this Legislature
closes with the crowning infamy of a
bnrly negro door-keeper using physi
cal yiolence on Representatives of
the people withing the Bacred pre
cincts of,the halls of the Legislature...
Never before has the.S late been
brought to such depths of humilia
tion and infamy. Not eyen m the
darkest night of Reconstmction was
the black hand.of the African laid
upon the shoulder of men whom the
people sent as.their.Representatives,
What is thepurpose of this in
Is it to provoke blood-shed.
Is it to solidify the negro by de
grading and insulting the whites?
Was it a conspiracy spawned in
the afternoon caucus ?

Why did the General Assembly re

Church and another one or two
went to Nancy Owens' tke mother
of tbe child, carrying some liquor
with them. They all, the child's
mother amoBg them, got on a kind
cf jubilee frolic. And while the
rest were feeling so. good. Church
gave the child some of tbe liquor,
perhaps two or three drinks. That
was on Fiiday night and the latter
part of last November. Next day
Church went over into Watauga,
and that evening, Saturday evening
tbechild died. A coroners' inquest
was held and tbe verdict was that
the liquor had killed t he child. The
grand jury found a true bill against
Church, with the result as stated
