MURDER NEAR MORGANTON.

Causby, a young man of twenty
five years, was found murdered
about two mile from Morganton,

At the coroner s inquest Phillip loner.
Williams, one of the witnesses,) Wlieu the reporter first entered the
w eakened at the sight of the corn, e I
and confessed that he committed
the murder. JIjs evidence was also
sufficient to criminate Sylvanus
Morrow, who was with him at the
tiiue of the murder and who is
considered equally ' guilty.
Williams and Morrow are both
peaceable men when sober, and
this deed is attributed solely to the
ellocts of ''mean corn w'.uskv."
A few days a.sro a case was tried
bei'ore J. (j. Nicl o!s, J. P., in which n
colored si'htMyl teacher of District No. 8
had indicted one of the school commit
tee for locking the school house in ttie
absence of the teacher. It cropped out
during the trial that the teacher had
left the school house on Thursday.
Counsel Tor the defondaut took the
position that the defendant locked the
building to preserve the property and
not to interfere with the school, and j
asked the teacher who was on the wit
ness stand if he usually suspended his
school for several days at the time
without applying to the committee for
permission to do so. The teacher who
in an educated colored "gemman'' re
plied "synoptitiously" I do. lie was
asked w hat he meant by synoptitiously,
and replied I mean ''frequentially."
One of the committee testified that the
tcncUrr 'was a "good" one aud taught a
"food itchool." Counsel for the State
argued this fast and commented on
tba defence not contradicting the
statement. Counsel for thu defendant
said it was too "yuoptitiouly" and
'frequentially" evident for him to try
to controvert, as he used wcrds that
Noah Webster was not even educated
euough to use or define. The defendant
was acquitted aud the synoptitiously
and frequentially educated teacher
paid the costs.

KID AIR WRECK
A Cnble of the Aerial Car l in
Break, Causing a Fearful
Xoar Knoxville, Tonn., acroas the
Tennessee River, is the only Aerial
Car lino in America. There, is a
bluff on the north side of the) river !
325 feet high. From the top of this
bluff, suspended across tlm river
are two large wire cable, upon
which track a small car is used to
transfer passengers across tho river.
Thi was a scheme of the L'naka
Park Land Company, and has been
successfully operated for some
On last Sunday afternoon six
persons got in the cur, and started
across the river, and th trip was
safuly made to within two or three
feet of tho high bluff, when one of
the cables broke in the cable house,
and the pulling cable began to run
out with great velocity, carrying
tho car in the direction of the bank
from which it started. The proper
f.re'.hougat had not been given tko
actit.n of the small cable. Thii4 is,
of course, doubled, the weight of the
cablo was pulling it trough tho pul
leys with groat rapidity. The cable
is tarred to prevent slipping and
great Hare of flame shot out
around the car. Suddenly there was
a crash and the car was seen to rock
from side toide and then the hor
rifled spectators saw the planks
ishoot out and down as if the car
was falling to pieces. The broken
end of tho cable had struck the end
of tho car and knocked it in.
When the smoke from the burn
ing tar had cleared away it was
Been that the car was at an angle
of at least 45 degrees and that the
passenger were clinging to the1
window frames, the sides and the
upper end of tho car with tho en
ergy of despair. Their position was
most perilous, for they were sus
pended over tho river at a height
of no less than 200 feet.
Tho employees of the company
pulled themselves together as
quickly a they could, and shout
ing to tho passengers to keep up
their courago, thoy jumped in the
boat, pulled across tho river and
climbed the precipitous bluff, ap
pearing soon at tho other end of
the cable, bearing a long coil of
rope. One end was thrown over the
cable and slid down to the car. It
was then doubled over the end,
falling to tho river irhero, in the
boat, was a larger rope also a heavy
block and tackle. When thiB had
been pulled up to the car the work
of rescue was begun. A loop was
made and placing a foot in it four
of tho passengers reached tho boat
Rut a man and woman wero left,
and a ngro man stopped in the
loop to bring them down. When he
reached the car it was readily seen
that the horrors were not all over.
A body was handed out that was
limp and helpless. It was Oliver
Ledgerwood, a young 'lawyer and
politician, of Knoxville. Ho died
before he could be brought to the
city from his injuries.
Miss Waddell, who had accom
panied Ledgorwood, on tho trip,
was rescued, also, a boy named
