rcport J ly rerrU Eiiib-9 Esq., of. th; r.aWgTi
C. H. McDonald v?. J. M. MeEryde tt al
(appeal by Hodges and Fc-pe) from Har
riett county. Opinion by Avery, J.
The bondsmen of a defendant, who
has consented to a judgment against
himself and his fcureties, in claim and
delivery, are Dot entitled after judg
ment to an order making them party
defendants and vacating the judgment;
nor for an injunction. Such judg
ment can be 6et aside only by civil ac
tion; not by a motion in iho cause.
2. It is no ground of complaint on
the part of tho sureties that defeu- i
dat.t conscntad to tho judgmont j
before tho maturity of the debt ancd
upon, such agreement not being ne-
cessarilv fraudulent. And even wero
thero fraud or collusion, the proper
remedy is a new civil action.
No error. Affirmed.
State (appellant) vs. William Yeargan, frora
Wake county. Opinion by Faircloth, C. J.
1. Retween the ages of 7 and 14; an
infant is presumed to be innocent and j
incapable of committing crime, but
that presumption may be rebutted by j
thowing that he can discern between ;
good and evil. In euch cases as ag- j
gravated battcrv, uso of a deadly
weapon, attempt to rape and the like,
malice and wickedness supply tho
want of age and public justice demands
that the majesty of the lav should bo
2. But upon an indictment for a '
simple misdemeanor (gambling by ,
"bhooting craps"), where the jury j
louna in a 6peciai vercuci tuai mo de
fendant knew right from wrong, but
did not know that ho was violating tho
law, and that ho was between the agjs
of 13 and 14 years; Held, that it was
not error for tho court to hold that
tho defendant was not guilty.
B. V. McCless et al vs J. C. Meekln3 et al
(appellants) from Tyrrell county. Opin
ion by Montgomery. J .
1. Where, in an action to retain a
sheriff from paying into the general
county treasury ft special tax fund,
which the plaintiff alleges was collect
ed for his own benefit it was objected
that the complaint was defectivo iu
substance in that it did not show that
tho county orders, for which the
bonds were issued, w cro given for nec
essary expenses or by tho sanction of
f. majority vote of the qualified voters,
and that therefore tho orders were
void; Held, that as tho complaint al
leges that the orders wero valid and
overdue, the pleading is tuflicicnt, the
presumption being that he Commis
sioners acted in good faith and within
the scope of their authority.
2. Tho County Commissioners not
only have the power, without the sanc
tion of the popular vote, to contract a
debt for its necessary expenses, but
also the right to acknowledge tho debt
by the issuance of an order on tho
treasurer of the county for its pay
ment, and to substitute bonds of the
county for the orders which it has pre
viously issued for the samo old debt.
3. Where an Act of tho General As
sembly gave to tho County Commis
sioners tho pover to issue, without
tho sanction of a popular vote, bonds
for any and all indebtedness of tho
county, whether for necessary ex
penses or not; Held, that such Act is. i
void only in tho part in conflict with
tho Constitution, Art. Yll., Sec. 7.
4. The Act of 1S95, Ch. 278, is un
constitutional as seeking to impair tho
the obligation of a contract.
No error in granting the restraining
N. C. School fur the Deaf and Dumb vs. N.
C. Instituto for Deaf, Dumb and Blind.
(Doth sides appeal.) Opinion by Mont
The defendant institution at Raleigh
was created by tho Act of 41-45, Ch.
37, for tho purpose of educating and
maintaining iho pioor and destituto
deaf mutes and blind persons of this
Tho plaintiff corporation of Morgan
ton is a school for white deaf and
dumb children of this State, chartered
by tho Act of 1891, Ch. 309. Section
5of said Act proMdcs that when said
Hohool shall bo completed, tho white
deaf and dumb pupils, who might then
bo in tho institution at Raleigh should
be removed to Morganton and placed
in the school there.
In 1SG1, one John Kelly bequeathed
to the defendant's board of directors
and their successors $G,000, tho inter
est thereon to be used for tho educa
ting "poor mutes."
Tho plaintiffs bring this action ix
have themselves declared the trustees
of the corpus of this fund and compel
tho defendant's board of directors to
pay it over to them.
The fund consists of $1,000 in State
bonds and a library; Held,
1. The statement of tho above facts'
in tho complaint in this action is not
sufficient to have the courts revoke the
trust and place it in the bands of the
2. The library and the interest of
tho fund should be divided pro rata
between tho white and colored deaf,
mutes of the State nnder the care and
training of all the institutions now cs-'
tablishcd or to be hereafter estab
lished by tho State, such apportion
ment to be based upon the official re
ports of said institutions as to attend
ance. The interest should bo dis
tributed annually and the division of
the books made at onee.
Affirmed and modified. . Avery, J.,
Stat vs. Jams Griffi (appellant), from
Wake county. Opinion by Avery, J.
"Where, in a criminal action before a
justice ct tno peace, juugiaeut was
tuspended upon the payment of cotts
whereupon the defendant appealed:
Held, that while tho law rdiaarily
presumes that such judgment was en
tered either at the requect of the de
fendant or bv his concent, the faet that
in this case the defendant appealed im
mediately upon tho rendition of the
judgment rebuts such presumption,
and in e-uch case the Superior Court
should order a trial de novo and not a
writ of recordari.
Error. Judgment reversed.
State vs. John N. Sberrard (appellant), from
Wayne county. Opinion by Clark, J.
1. A town may forbid by ordinance
"disorderly conduct," which does not
amount to an indictable nuisanco or
other offence forbidden by the general
law of the State.
2. Where tho words "a damn high
way robber" were uttered only once,
bat in a violent and abusive manner in
a publio restaurant; Held, that such
laDgnago is profane, whether the prefix
"God" was added or not; and such
conduct, not being so repeated and bo
public as to becomo a nuisance, is
properly cognizable only under tho
State vs. Nick DcBoy (appellant), from
Wake county. Opinion by Clark, J.
1. "Raffling" is gambling, within
tho purview of tho Act of 1891, ch.
29, and the persons getting up tho
raifle, those who purchase chances and
thoso who "throw" the dice, whether
owning a chance or not, aro equally
liable as principals.
2. "Shooting for beef (shooting at
turkeys), where each participant pays
for his "chance," and progressive
euchre parties, and similar entertain
ments where the hostess offers prizes,
aro not "gambling," within tho mean
ing of tho statute, as in tho first case
tho ownership of tho turkey depends
upon 6kill; in tho latter tho players
cannot lose and bet nothing.
TO PKESEliVE FORT HALE1GII.
Permanent Materials to be Used in the
Restoration A Memorial.
Work is to begin immediately on
Roanoke Island for the restoration aud
preservation of Fort Raleigh, which
was built there by Sir Walter Raleigh's
colonibts. It is cue of the most hibtoric
spots in the United States. The fort
and the surroundings have been care
fully surveyed. It Ia shown to have
been laid off by skilled engineers, It
is 135 feet from one basbion to another.
A part of it yet remains. In the res
toration permanent materials will be
used, and tho fort will have, as near as
possible, tho appearance of tho origi
nal. Tho fort is within a quarter of a
milo of Roanoke sound and within
two miles of Albemarle sound.
i he work of restoration will bo doiio
by an association whose members aro
mainly in North Carolina and Mary
land and Graham Davis, of Newborn,
is president. Roanoke Island is in
Dare county, which the Legislature
some years ago crentod and named af
ter Yirginra Dare, the first white child
born on American soil. The associa
tion will also erect on the island near
Fort Raleigh a memorial out of the
ballest thrown overboard by Amadas

the General Assembly on the issues of the

tho House Wednesday night iu response to a
Mr. Crisp confined himself almost exclu
sively to the financial question and ia th3
course of lib remarks declared himself une
quivocally in favor of free, unlimited and
independent coinage of silver, at u ratio of
ICtol. lib argument was confined to a
contradiction of tho statement made by tho
advocates of a gold standard to tho effect
that freo coinage would result in silver mon
ometalibni, and that values would be de
creased. He advised an exposition from the Demo
crats of Georgia on tho question, and said
they should insist that their representatives
in the next eongress should insi-t upon the
making of a platform by those who eWtod
the President, and nt by those who live 1 in
States that did net furnish tho electoral vote.
He said that thero wero many good Denv-

but that their views wero as much at va
