“Just and Able Judge” Is Caption of
Editorial In The Asheville Times.
Judge John M. Oglesby, of Concord,
last week completed a long stay in
Asheville, and The Asheville Times of
Igst Wednesday carried the following
editorial under the caption, “A Just
and Able Judge
“Judge John M. Oglesby, now end
ing the last week of his judicial so-'
journ in Buncombe and the other
counties of the 19th district, will
leave behind him a splendid reputa
tion for diligence in business and un
alterable determination to uphold the
law and measure out impartial justice

‘'Ube people of Asheville.,and Bun
combe will especially remember Judge
Qglesby for his charge to the grand
jury following the storming of the
county jail by a mot) in search of a
negro who, fortunately, had been re
moved from the county. His Honor
on that occasion delivered a stirring
appeal to the jurors for prompt and
fearless dealing with a lawlessness
which sought to tear down and
trample underfoot the very structure
of the law itself. Such men as Judge
Oglesby are creators and upholders of
North Carolina's best judicial tradi
Judge Oglesby arrived in Concord
Saturday night and will remain here
until tomorrow when he will leave
for Marion, where he will wed Miss
Sara Hudgins on Thursday evening.

A Cabarrus Situation.
Charlotte Observer.
The Albpinar.e-Salisbury highway
No. SO, barely tips the northern
corner of Cabarrus. The Concord Ob
server- bears ■that the- -road-, -financed
' by Stably nlftl Roif-ati cwuMfies," ”<ylli
be given ts turn and a curve to
avoid Cabarrus.” If that should be
the case, it will be because of simpli
fying the mater of financing, for the
read woUld touch Cabarrus only to
the extent of one of the white wasifes
indicating the unfinished road, and
the slightest deviation would be suf
ficient to escape complication over a
small financial matter. This. How
ever, is simply speculation. It is a
fact that Cabarrus has been liberal
in providing money for the highway
reaching toward Albemarle. The
Concord paper insists that it was an
outright gift of $300,000 to build the
State highway to the Stanly line,
and not a “loan." That being the
case, it may be assumed with Some
degree of certainty that there will
be no discrimination against Cabar
rus in the routing of the Albemarle-
Salisbury highway.

C. C. Griffin Struck by Automobile.
C. C. Griffin, of South Union street,
was struck by an auto Saturday night
about ft o’clock at the intersection
of Union and Corbin streets. He
was not seriously hurt.
Police officers have not been able
to find Hie driver of the car. Sev
eral persons saw the accident, the
officers report, but the eye witnesses
can not agree as to the make of the
car. Some sky it was a Ford tour
ing car with the curtains up, others
say it was a Ford sedan, while others
say it was a Buick.
Mr. Griffin was dragged several
feet after being struck by the car and
it was feared at first that he was se
riously hurt. He was rushed to the
Concord Hospital where an examina
tion showed his injuries to be mostly
cats and brusies. He returned to hie
home Sunday afternoon.
The driver of the car stopped a
minute after striking Mr. Griffin bnt
soon sped on. ; One person near the
scene of the accident said the car
started up again after one of the
occupants shouted to the driver:
“Pour it in her.”

Temperature Hovered Around 20

The sun shone with much splendcr
Suuday bet his rays made little im
pression on the freezing temperatures
which rode into Concord Saturday
night on a wind which had its origin
ih the west where temperatures rang
ing from 18 above to 12 below zero
carried suffering to many.
The public generally did not antici
pate the decided Aange in tempera
ture and for that reason the cold was
more pronounced. Persons without
overcoats were seen on the streets fn
numbers Saturday afternoon, but the
only persons who ventured out with
out them Sunday were those who had
Police officers on duty Saturday
night state that temperatures dropped
to 15 above zero during the night and
so far as is known, the temperature
Sunday was -cover above 22 degrees.
There is no official government weath
er bureau here but many persons
kept tab on the weather with individ
ual thermometers and t|ie average
temperature for the day was 20 above.
At 6 o'clock Sunday night the mer
cury started on another tumble and
dropped rapidly to 18 Above. Per
sons who watched its progress during
t)ie night report that it touched 8
above at 4 o'clock this morning. At
7 this morning a thermometer at the
Pearl Drug Store resigtered 9 above
I and one afe Gibson Drug Store was
down to 5.
i Plumbers were in demand Sunday
and today, with the greatest number
of calls reported this morning. Froz
eti pipes were the, rule rather than
the exception.
Auto owners in many instaces also
found the change in weather very
costly for frozen radiators were re
ported in great numbers. Many cars
which were placed in garages Satur
day night refused to move Sunday
morning anil a few others are said
to have frozen during the day after
leaving warm garages early in the
. morning.
Falls for fuel were received by city
officials from a number of families,
it is said, and in most instances the
fuel was furnished. It is said that
more calls would have been received
had not many families been given fuel
op Christmas. Jl
Continued cold weather for the re
mainder of the day and night is
promised, with slowly rising tempera
tures later in the week.

distributed over the county to people,
who were having little or no Christ

to twenty-two families, averaging five
children to a family and fuel was
given to seven hemes.
"All the fuel given ont as an “Op
portunity" was contributed by A. B.
Pounds, who very kindjy agreed to
give to the King's Daughters all the
coal they needed in distributing to the
poor this Christmas.
Another generous gift chine from
C. A. Cannon, who telephoned to the
office of Dr. T. N. Spencer on the
day before Christmas and inquired
how many '‘Opportunities" were still
not tnken. and later sent a check to
cover all needs. He expressed a hope
that tiiere would not be a cheerless
