This fao simile tells the tale of the
whole bill, and shows that there v as

The following is the original bill,
and shows the hand Reformer Hile
man had in it :
The General Assembly of North
Carolina do enact :
Section 1. That all conditional

Raleigh News and Observer.
The Enrolling Committee Vouch fcr
After enrolling the bill the Litu
tenant Governor and tie Speaker of
the II.' use did not sign it until it
was certified to them by the corn
ndttee on enrolled bills that it was a
correct copy of the bill.
The members of the committee on
enrolled bills that it was a correct
copy of the bill.
The members of the committee
who signed this certificate, which
was in these words : "Examine! and
found correct," were :
From the House J A Walker,
Populist, of Rockingham county; Z
Taylor, Populist, of Cumberland
county, and E V Cox, Republican,
of Pitt county. From tne Senate
O A Starbuck, Republican, of GuiK

Observe : Not a Democrat on the
committee certified, "Examined and
found correct." Observe further:
Not it piugle solitary Democrat was
employed in either the Principal or
Enrolling Clerk's of office. If any
body paid anybody to forge the bill
through, no Democrat was in a
position to be involved. Somebody
furged the bill through. Who did
it ? And who are the sworn and

it? Senator Fortun, Repulican
