of this county were made to believe,
by a "sham" telegram from Harris
burg, that a lynching bee, several
hurdred strong, was headed towards
Concord last Thursday night. Sheriff
Sims had the doctor taken to the
Presbyterian church and summoned
a guard to stay at the jail to receive
the lynching bee or do whatever was
necessary. About 4 or 5 o'clock
Friday morning he had Dr. White
taken back to j ii), where he remain
ed until Friday evening's train, on
whic'i the sheriff took him to Salis
bury, where, according to the World,
he is now in j iil. .
Quite naturally Dr. White insists
on his innocence, claiming that he
is persecuted, etc. Being rather in
telligent and gifted at speech he
made some believe bis side of the
story. On the ether hand, from
responsible parties, from the tearful
story of the young girl's parents and
the testimony of Drs. Jerome and
Hartsell, who immediately after the
alleged crime were called in and ex
amined the young girl, a very dark
case is claimed against the prisoner.

The offense was committed in
Stanly county and the spot where the
crime is said to have been committed
shows evidence of struggle. The
trial was in Stanly. The magistrate
sent him, the prisoner, with the com
mitment endorsed by two Cabarrus
magistrates, to the Cabarrus jail. It
is said that the proceedings wr re out
of order; that the sheriff had no
right to receiye a prisoner from the
cciii-t of a ' magistrate of p.oibcf
county, but the eheriff knows his
business and tcuk him in aud has
thus tn prevented hia lynching.

ground for believing that thre was

While a number said he ought to be,
etc, there was not any concerted ac
tion, we are told it takes a leader to
lead a mob. While all this talk
took place before and ebout ths
trial, there was absolutely no danger
of it after the prisoner was brought
to town, not only because the mob
would not come safiisiently strong
but because we believe Sheriff Sims
would die in hia boots and have his
guards do the same rather than have
a prisoner lynched.

without issue and his estate goes to

The Standard interviewed Ats

Thomas Lloyd Halsey had three

Charlotte News : Cotton in still on
tbe decline. The New York mar
ket to day waa lower than it has
been any time since the opening of
the present season. This decline is
a puzzler for the cotton m?n, who
are not able to understand ic. When
receipts were heavy, the. price was
higher than now, when the receipts
are lie;ht. The receipt? are not oyer
sixty per cent of last year's receipts,
yet in the face of all that, the mars
ketis now at a point lower than it
has yet been. The only way to ac
count for the low price is that the
cotton is being held back, and are

might briog on a flood that would
overwhelm them. The farmers,
though, still haye the best, of the
bargain, for they are in anch a po

desire to do so. They haye the cot

it up for less than eight cents. That
