JAMES .p., COOK,
IT im A "SOL.ID 3SOKT1V SOW.
We have scanned Republican pa
pers in vaui for any . warnipgs
against the d;nger of perpetuating
a "fiolid" north. These iournals
have for so many years denounced a
solid sonh" a3 a sfctiocal nci'y
prejudicial to t!ia Larniony and pros
perity of the country, that we reason
' ably eipecied they would make haste
also to condemn what the late elec
tions reyeale J a solid xokth. But
in this we have been disappointed.
If there is a good reason to appre
hend bad effects from sectional unity
the danger must evidently to much
greater when the "solid" section is
the preponderant and aggressive one
than when it is the minority section,
always outvoted by the larger and
stronger one. The "gelid south"
could not control national legislation
without considerable help from the
north, whereas a unit;d partisan
north can pass any measure which
its sectional iutereas or prejudices
la the "wrong cx" gored this time?
Must the clamor rgainst sectional
unity be sailed simply because the
Baction making the clamor has be
come the solid one? It really ap
pears so. -
Duricg the whole period in wLich
the south was "solid,'' or nearly so,
its -repreienfatives supported not a
single measure designed to injure
any other "section; they demanded
nothing tor the exclusive benefit
of the South; they proposed nothing
irritating to any other part of the
countj ; their policies were all con
servative and national. Will they
be treated in a like manner by a now
SCUlATIEi:. IMF "HESM1AII."
A curious study in credulity is
presented in Denver, where for sev
eral weeks past Francis Schlatter, a
German shoemaker, has been creat
ing a sensation as a divine "healer,"
Denver ;3 presumably familiar
enough wit'a heelers" of the ward
variety, but this new specimen was
a revelation, and from all accounts'
the guileless people of the Colorado
metropolis were taken in by him as
is only supposed to be possible with
innocent denizes of the backwoods.
Schlatter's methods have the merit
of simplicity, consisting merely in
holding tha hand of the afflicted
person and uttering a few words to
himself supposedly by way of invo
cation to "Father," from; whom he
professes to receive all hi3 power.
The man himself seems to be honest
and well-meaning, evidently self
deceived, which probably accounts
for his success in hoodwinking
others. lie began his career in
New Mexico, where he is 83id to
have worked some wonderful cures,
and where he acquired a reputation
as a "'Messiah." - From there he went
to Denver, where he made an m
stantanfaneous success. Thousands
flocked to hi3 humble cottage, before
which he stood all day holding the
hands of the sick, the halt, the
lame and the blind," refusing in' all
caseaJio -Jiccept- pay for the cureslie
was supposed to effect.
The telegrams of the last few
days, however, record an" abrupt
ending to Schlatter's work in Den
ver; Some fakirs who were vending
handkerchiefs supposed to possess
magic power from Laviog been
touched by the "MeBSiah," got into
court, and Schlatter, probably fear
ing he would be summoned as"a
witness, disappeared. ..
The straDgeat thing about the
whole busines? is not that Schlatter
Bucceeded in imposing on the deni
zens of the New Mexican wilds,
bat that he should haye created such
a furore in the mod?rn and en
lightened city of Denver. We neei
not be surprised ' e hear of his ap
pearing in New York or Washington
and compelling the people there to
bow before his divinity.
THIS IS THESTCFF THEY THRIVE

That our readers, and -especially
those in Cabarrus county, may Bee
what is being written about lis in
northern papera, we clip the attach
ed article. We preface the article
by saying that the aathor of it is an
unmitigated liar. "The Morning

'j- "We are Jinable to agree with the
esteemed ad usually.: accurate

not be den; jd that crime 61 ten goes
unpunished in the South, even when
it is brought into court, but there
neyer waa a time -when the utmost
ngor of the law waa not applied to
the negro, and more especially if ae
ensed of a crime againat the chasityg
of a white woman. -The Traveler,
though it takea the wings of morn
ing and scours the whole South for
evidence, will not find one -case
where a negro brought to trial for
this crime haa not. received the full
penalty of the law. It will, how
ever, fand many instances where

ben hunted down by the furious

it has been found tnat the wrong

justification for the barbarioua hang
ing, shooting and burning of nei
groe in the South, nor is ic just to
excuse these atrocities on the plea
that the law ia not rigorously ap
plied to offenders. The disgraceful
fact is that the offender rarely lives
to get into court. Once in a while
he gets into jail; but that only
makes it easier for the mob to find
him, and hastens his end."
The London Christian World re
lates an instance of religious bigotry
which we believe would be impossi
ble in thia cou ltry.
A lady in a little town near Nor

AN OLD CA'JAKEUoirE.
A Soldier Writes Mr. Goodinan and
Sends n Letter From a Comrade
Mr. HM Goodman handed The
Standard a letter, written him by
Mr, J M Sloan. We print a letter,
below, written to Mr. Sloan -by an
old comrade. The letter to Mr.
Goodman starts out "Dear 15abe,"
Mr. Goodman's petpwar title.
Mr. Sloan was raised in Cabarrus
by the late Dr. Dolph Gibson. .
We publish in the sequel a letter
received by Mr. J il Sloan, of Eore
ka, from an old comrade in the "riost
Cause." The name of the w . is
Geo. D Shadbnrne, now a very
prominent lawyer in San Francisco,
Cal. He and Mr. S'.oaa were cap
tured by the northern army, hand
cuffed together for fourteen days,
and condemned to be shot, but es
caped from prison and this letter is
a portion of a correspondence, the
first between them since '65.
The following from "The Nation,"
published in San Francisco is a par
tial biography ot Mr. Shadbarne:
"George D Shadburne was born in
Texas, June 14, 1841. Then Texas
was the Lone Star Republic, and
General Houston waa President. By
the treaty of Quorefaro the citizsns
of the United States, with all the
rights and privileges, including the
presidency. Mr. Shadbnrne'a father
had gone to Texas in 1846. He
joined later the heroic band that
rallied round General Houston for
the independence of the country and
took part m the principal battles
under that intrepid soldier. He
waa in the engagement of San
Jacinto, the last great struggle, and
witnessed the capture of Santa Anna,
the Mexican general who had taken
refuge in a tree top. In Texas Mr
Shadburne passed his younger years.
He finished his education, however,
at the welloknown St. Mary'a col
lege Kentucky, When thejciyil war
broke out Mr. Shadburne was in his
nineteeth year. When we consider
his training and how imbued he
must have been with the heroic storj
of the Texai struggle, it is not to be
wondered that he was eager to take
part in hostilities, and ambitions of
the glory that ia the romance of a
soldier s life. Jlis first seryice was
with the Jeff Dayis Legion operating
at the beginning of the war in Vir
It as not long, however, before
the intrepidity and dash that charac
terized him commended him to Genr
eral Wada Hampton, and he was in
consequence appointed chief of
scouta in the secret service of the
army. We may say here that since
that early time a yery waam jfriend'
ship has existed between General
Hampton and Mr. Sbadburn--'

The Supreme Court Tuesday ren
dered a decision in the very impor
tant case of Standford vs. Ellington,
(Justice Furchea delivering the
opinion). The case involves the
title to the office of State Librarian,
the pla:ntiff, E B Standford, basing
hia claim upon an election by the
Legislature under an act of the last
Assembly amending the section of
The Code which formerly provided
for an election of Srate Librarian by
the trustees of the Library. In the
election by the Legislature the plain

the Hourb. The Supreme Court
sustains the judgement of the court
below and holds that the- la.m tiff,
Standford, is not entitled to recover;
that the election was invalid by rea
son of the fact that Standford did
not receive a majority of the rotes of
both hou8ea of the General Assembly
and that the members voting did not
constitute a quorum as the total
number ia 50 Senators and 120
members of the House. It was fur
