One Dollar a Year
Bit Distiller Sentenced t JalL
Mr. 1). L. Arey, the veil known
Bavlmbary distiller, wholesale and
retail liquor dealer, wan senteuced
by Judge Boy 'I ia tbe United
Bute District Court yesterday.
Ia pronouncing judgment. Judge
Boyd designated two penalties,
either of which would be acre pta
bl to the court. Mr. Arry wai
given time to consider tbe details
at length aud after advising with
his attorneys to make, known his
choice to tiie court, lie may sera
two years in the United Mates
prison in Atlanta, and pay a flue
ot aouo; or tr be ia willing to re
turn the uouey of which he de
frauded the government, then the
sentence imposed would he two
months imprisonment with the
nominal floe of -''Mi. The costs,
amounting to 92,500, to be added
in either event.
This cane has been of unusual in
terest. Mr. A rev, who is charged
with very extensive violation of
the internal revenue laws in the
operations of his immense distillery
at Salisbury, is ooe of tbe wealth
iest aud most prominent men of
Rowan county. The evidence pro
duced showed that he was a man
of large heart and great public
spirit A number of the most
prominent citiseua of Halisbury,
such gentlemen as Mayor Boydeu,
Rev. llr. Murdoch, CapL Cough
enour atd others, testifying to his
integrity aud good character. The
evidence further showed that Mr.
Arey's physical condition was such
that imprisonment might result
fatally. But the testimony also
showed, and this was admitted by
the dependent himself, that be was
guilty. Through bis attorneys,
Messrs. R. II. McNeill of Washing
ton and Mr. Walter II. Woodson
of Salisbury. Mr. Areysued for the
mercy of tbe court and asked that
a sentence of inipriaouiueut be not
pronounced. "Allow this man,
your honor, who is so highly es
teemed in bis home city, whose ex
emplary character has beeu so con
clusively demonstrated, and who is
even now nigh to death's door,
grant that he may be permitted to
satisfy the demands of justice with
tbe payment of a reasonable fine
and let bim return to his family
who are even now agonizing in his
behalf." These words of Mr. Mc
Neill summed op the defendant's
Mr. Arey, who was sitting with
bis attorneys in the court room yes
terday morning, did not appear to
be disturbed in the least when the
ease was called. He seemed to be
tbe easiest man iu the room. Tbe
many faces of the spectators pres
ent wei alive with expectation.
Those who bad heard tbe opinion
expressed by Judge Boyd theeven
iug previous anticipated interest
ing developments. Tbe defendant's
attorneys were maulfestly uneasy.
Mr. Arey, a heavy built, ruddy
weed, prosperous looking citueo of
tbe sturdy type, was Waning back
in a Urge revolving chair, with au
immense palmetto leaf fan in his
hand and seemed not at all anxious.
Judge Boyd, before making
known sis decision, expresned his
very great regrets that be was un
able to grant tbe request of tbe de
fendant's counsel aud impose a fiue
without imprisonment. "I have
considered the matter well," said
be. "I have reviewed all the cir
cumsiances in connection with tbe
case. I have thought of the de
fondant's physical condition aud
all tbe other facts that would nat
urally induce me to grant your re
quest, but gentlemen," and here
Judge Boyd sHkesoas to be beard
beyond tbe bounds of tbe .court
room, "I have not been able to sat
isfy myself as to suspending the
judgment of imprisonment. I speak
fraukly when I say that I havehes
itated in tbe course that I believe
strict justice demauds; but I cannot
do otherwise than impose tbe pen
alty I shall prouououce." And
then judge Boyd stated that he
would allow tbe defendant to make
choice of one of the two following
alteratives: He stated that he would
impose tbe maximum penalty pre
scribed under the 6 rot count of the
bill of iudictuieut, that of operating
a rectifying establishment with tbe
intent to defraud tbe United States
government aud pronoiiuee the sen
tence of two years imprisonment
with a fine of .",0OO; or that he
would designate the miuimum pen
alty under tbe teutb count iu the
bill of indictment, that of remov
ing dutax-paid spirits and impose
a sentence of two months imprison
ment with two hundred dollars
fiue, if be would make restitution
of the many thousands of dollars
that he defrauded from the govern
ment When Judge Boyd bad finished
speaking, Mr. Arey, accompanied
by Messrs. McNeill and Woodson,
at once repaired to their rooms in
the Buford Hotel to consult aud
confer as to what action should be
taken. The effort was made to in
duce Judge Boyd to strike out the
imprisonment clauses of the judg
ment, but without avail. He stood
firm to that section and no amount
of persuasion or entreaty could se
cure its remission. There was no
appeal from his decision in the ease
for a plea of guilty had been eu
tered, and this caused the interest
to be all tbe more intense. The
opinion was current that Mr. Arey
would have to accept one of t he two
sentences without any niodificaton.

It was nnderatoodthat he would se

Mr. U. H. McNeill, for the de

Mr. Arey was due the government
$.',000 for spirits rectified ou
which no tax had been paid. This
being sat istactary to the prosecu
tioo a judgmeut was signed requir
ing Mr. Arey to pay this sum. He
turned over i.1,000 at once and the
remaiuder will be paid in a reason

imprisonment, Judge Boyd stated
that be could not seutence Mr.
Arey at this time, but that be
would suspend this section of the
sentence uutil later, probably un
til October, at which time he would
decide whether or not the sentence
of two mouth's imprisonment
would be executed. Th this case,
that has been attracting such wide
iuterest and exciting so much com
ment, was ended.

THE SIKES COMPANY.
The mountains of Western North
Carolina and Kant Teunewtee were
familiar to me, as well as the pros
perous farming country of our sis
ter Mate, but not uutil this trip
bad I seen the blue-grass country
of old Kentucky; and nothing else
so impressed me on my way to Kt
Ixiuis. Kentucky is more I'ke
Kuglaod, I'rof. Collier Cobb tells
me, than any other part of Ameri
ca aud this makes me all tbe more
desirous to see Kuglaud. For blue-
grass Keuturky is indeed "God's
country," as it w called iu that
singularly beautiful story, "The
Little Shepherd of Kingdom
Come." The gentle sloiies, the
pleasant valleys, the shady groves.
the wide lawns all are covered
with such a carpet of velvety greeu
to make one realize more than ever
before the Iwauty of King Ihtvid's
song, "He nmketh me to he down
in green pastures; he leadeth 111c
lieside the still waters."
But the picture would lose hall'
its beauty if it were not for the
sleek, contented animals that look
their pleasure as you pass by them.
Here are tbe cattle ou a thousand
hills. Here, too of courseare
horses, Kentucky horses; and their
fame has not abated. I he Keu
tucky people still know how to
raise then. Andrew Carnegie sent
a man out here to see about buying
oue some time ago, aud the breed
er showed hiiu some horses with
marvelous records, but with age,
alas! coming ou them, aud some
younger horses, not yet broken,
but with such edigrec as to in
sure remarkable perlorinances.
"Well, you have shown me your
has bceus and your going to-lies,"
said the prospective buyer, "but
what I want is au is er." Aud he
got it, for they have is ere here in
the blue grass. I saw more colts in
ouo mom inn's ride than I bud seen
u the Carolinas for a year.
Whatever it may have been in
Itoone's time, Keutucky is now no
dark and bloody ground," and I
must see more of it. A friend of
mine who was there last year says
that the beautiful social life, such
as was found in the ante-bellum
South, is more mainly preserved in
Kentucky than aiiywhereel.se. Aud

How Oklahoma Was Settled.
In my letter last week. I quoted
Richard Harding Davis's account
of the opening up of Oklahoma. A
great many of tbe original settlors
are still here. I saw yesterday a

opened up April 22, IfWH. But

Thieve and Bandits in the E arly
"We didn't have a police force
that counted for so much at first, "
said a Outline man to me this
morning, "but a valise in one of
those settler's tents was as safe as
if it had been in a bank. If it had
been stoleu the thief would have
Is-en stretched -that's all. Kvery
man in town had a Winchester,
and a fellow risked too much to
make stealing attractive."
This friend of mine also told me
that probably 150 bandits had been
killed or captured iu the Territory
in the last twelve jears, nnd the

I course, to the larger offenders, for
the smaller ones, unable to pay
fines iu considerable amounts, have
made atonement by undergoing
sentences to county jailsor hederaj
prisons. This proceeding gradual
ly grew into a system, and under
ll the blockading of liquor has not,
of course, de r -ased. It is uo n
tlcctiou upou Judge Boyd to say
that he was, without doulit, aware
of the custom, and it is altogether
a credit to bis conception of his
duties as a judicial officer and to
his humanity tba the determined to
break it up, but to give ample no
ticeofthe method he should em
ploy. He has therefore uttered
lull warning of his purpose to
resort to imprisonment for vio
lations of the law, seeing that
fines inflicted no puuishiueiit at all,

of the very offences lor which they
were fined, the money with which

Alter announcing publicly and of

stop, he began to sentence to ieui
tentiaries and jails the rich aud
"respectable'' distillers and dealers

he persists in the policy, as he un
doubtedly will, the offences will
slop. The payment of a fine and
costs are nothing; the discomfort

Judge Boyd needs no commenda
tion for the vigorous policy uM)u
which he has entered. It is right;
he kuows it is; and it is the only
policy which will prove effective.
It has liceti too long felt that to de
fraud the government by defeating
it of the tax to w hich it is entitled
on liquor is no moral wrong. It is
aM w rong as it can be and it leads
to nil kinds of demoralization.
Permit the jieople to liecome con
vinced that ollcnce against oue law
is venial, aud they soon learn to
Micve that there is no wrong iu
the violation of another, and an
other. It is difficult to say whether
the influence of the illicit traflic in
liquor reaches up or down wheth
er from the little blockade still in
the mountains up to the wholesale
dealer or down from him to the lit
tle still. But both are fruitful
fountains of demoralization and
both deserve to be dealt with with
