trial was mnved from tfurke to McDow

secured a new trial and the result was
he was placed in the Insane Asylum at
llaleigh from which ):? escaped, was
retaken and placed in the Morgan ton
Hospital from which he also escaped.
When next heard of he was sentenced
to two years imprisonment in I he South
Carolina States prison for stealing a
cow. He was ii iso charged with com
mitting an assault on a white girl but
was never tried for it. 1 mmediately on
bis being released requisition papers
were awaiting him and he was brought
to Morganton Sunday. The clerk of
McDowell court issued a capias for him
and hence hi presence here.
His trial will occur at the next term

will meet with his just deserts. The

Marion, N. C.
My Dear Sir :
of the office of Deputy Collector to
take effect onl he 81st. inst. has
been received and the same is here
by accepted. I deeply regret that
your continued bad health compels
vou to take this step. You did not
isk lor the place wlicn you were
appointed to it by me, and you
have held on. long alter you want
ed to quit, simply because I would
not accept your resignation, tenu
red on occasions neretoiore.
In severing our official relations,
permit me to thank you tor the
courteous and efficient manner in
which vou have discharged the du
ties of your office, and to express
the earnest hope that you may be
peedily restored to your wonted
health. Sincerely your friend,
M. E. Caktkk, Collector.
I, not a Candidate.
We are requested by Mr. Ii. P-Craw
ford to state that he is not a candidate
fore the primaries for the nomina
tion for the Legislature.
TIic Income Tax.
Some people are under the impression
that the new income tax is retroactive
This is a mistake. The income tax
clause oi' the tariff bill states that from
and after January 1, 1S!)5, until January
1, 1U00, there shall be assessed, levied
collected aiid paid annually a tax of
per cent on the amount of income over
$4,000, and that this tax shall be assess
ed by the commissioner of internal rev
enue and collected and paid upon the
gains, profits p. ml income for the year
ending olst. next preceeding the time
of levying collecting- and paying such
tax. The law cannot go into etlect un
til January 1, 1S!)5, and no income tax
will be paid until December 31, 1395.
This is the status of the tax and it is
ill no sense retroactive. People with big
incomes will not have to pay the new
tax for nearly a year and a half. In
that time they will recognize the jus
tice and equity of the tax. Atlanta
