their dead and the body was found

l'.M l- U J' i i.naI. -I'lease ii.reit this
for the h,-neit 'f those who held an in
dication meeting at the Kichlands and
by resolution censured me, and aiked
me to resign my seat, because I would
not pander to their wishes und de
mands. Now to the history: The only promise
that I made in my canvass at the Kich
lando ws that my course should he
strictly Democratic, und that the only
special hobby I h:id was the Democratic
platform, winch no man dare t" i-ny.
In our primary canvs9 and in tne fun
eral canrass I told the people at Oil
man 's nulls and Morton a that if they
would return me to the Legislature, I
would use all the influence I possessed
to obtain them a charter for a railroad
running from Trent River to New River,
and Ihey give me their hearty support
in the general election and I heurtily
thank them. I talked with several men
both in Jones and Onslow and in
Wayne, and they urged me to press tor
ward in the enterprise.
The hrsl man to approach me on my
way to Kaleigh was Col. Humphrey,
who assured me the charter would be
forwarded to me soon: and C. E. Foy
was the next, who brought the charter,
and we went before the literary board
and I there protested against the road
being taken from us. The cli :er
aaked for the road and all of "W te
Oak swamp and proposed to pav tw,
live thousand dollars in first-class b s
of the company for said swamp an 1 .11
the taxes from said road and franc
should be paid into the t d ucat loDal f und .
and that when the said company should
construct its road through said lands
ready for the cars to run over, then the
board of education was to give them a
deed for said land. After discussing
the meriu of thj project, the (iovernor
suggested alternate sections of the land
and S 1 . oOO : and it was agreed, but the
board could not and did not take any
action, and the charter was on the same
day intrLsiuced by me and become
House bill No. 4.M).
Congressman bimmons also came to
Raleigh, and he talked with me about
it. and some delays of the committee
kept me from having a hearing before
I then w ent home and to Jackson
ville, and there I saw a petition and a
bill to revive and enact the old Plant
ers' Railroad, and talked with Dr.
Nicholson, who read the bill to me.
and I objected to section 7, which re
vived the subscriptions, etc. 1 returned
to Raleigh on Wednesday, met K. D.
Koonce. E. Murrill. S. h. Taylor and
Dr. Nicholson at Goldsboro. who went
to Raleigh with me; read the charter
acain on the cars, found the same ob
jections and in addition thereto ilasked
the Sute to grant said corporation two
hundred thousand dollars of the State's
bonds, and the Core Creek and Quaker
Bridge roads and the whole of the White
Oak swamp free. I suggested that like
For 'e project, they had better lay their
scheme before the board of education,
and they agreed, and I went with and I
introduced them to the Governor and
others, and treated them kindly.
Koonce laid his scheme before them as
to the State lands, and the same en
dorsement was had. Nothing was said
aa to price or alternate sections. I then
introduced the bill and it became House
bill 728. The committee on internal (
improvements of the House met the
same evening. H. B. 4s0 was then be
fore them, and bv the kindness and
confidence of Mr. Bulla, he trusted to
me H. B. 723 and both bills were con
sidered together in committee. We all
appeared and both sides were strongly
put byJUr. Koonce and Col. Humphrey
and the committe seemed to be solicit
ous about what I wanted done in the
matter; the committee took a vote on
the $200,000 clause, and it was struck
out. I then made this statement:
That the first proposition. H. B. 4?0.
waa the best for the State, but the sec
ond proposition waa the beet for my
countv, and as my people were petition- .
1 ing for it I must decide in favor of
them, and hoped that the committee
would so decide. We all then left the
I committee and, to the surprise of us
I all, the committee reported the Ijrst.
j H. B. 4?0, favorable, and H. B. un.
I favorable. I returned to the commit
tee soon to a-ertain the cause of their
j action, and Morgan took me aside and
. told me that if Koonce would put his
proposition on an eual footing with
(Humphrey's that they would reverse
I the report. I then told Col. Taylor
1 about the matter and also Koonce. and
he said h could not do it: that the
Northern men whom he waa represent
ing had not authorized him to do it and
he would not. I then called the com
mittee s attention to this tact: that it
they would be pleased to retort the bill
to the House without prejudice. 1 would
be glad, and they agreed to do it. I
then, widi Koonce, Murrill. Taylor und
Nicholson, .met at the Varboro House
that night an 1 finally Koonce and the
others agreed to let me amend the brl
so as to put it on an equal footing with
the other one, and I thought that the
committee would reverse the report.
Koonce met me at my boarding house
and wrote out the amendments and I
took charge of the tills, and they then
Si-nie fe ' days were passed before I

words and retired . and the committee
reported my bill favorably and it has

pome members to mtroduce the resolu
tions of censure and failed, and then
had to go around behin 1 the Speaker's
desk and hand them to him. and they
will not be presented unless I order it
done. I am informed that every mem
ber of the commutes in both houses and
every man in the General Assembly
will sustain me. and if any man in '
Onslow county d"es not believe me, all
he has to do is to come to Kaleigh and
I will call up the resolutions and test
I do not see but that I am just as pop
ular as I was before KooDCe made the
onslaught, and to prove this the Speaker
called me to the chair tonight and I pre
sided over the deliberations of the
House: in fact I am more popular be
cause their sympathies are drawn out
towards me. and Koonce is knoun too
well from K man to the seashore as an
oppressor of men in the collection of (
old debts, besides his llopdoodle course.
I can forgive my people because I love
them, but I must confess 1 am surprised 1
at them for letting Koonce lead them:
and I will be frank, gentlemen. I am
no, popular enough to take Koonce and
his w ild cat schemes through the Leis- '
lature. neither will I attempt to entail
litigation and probable bankruptcy on
the glorious old county of Onslow. I
have letters and documents to bear me
out in my assertions. I hope to be with
you all soon and all this trouble will
recoil on Frank's shoulders.
Now in conclusion I will say to the 1
good perple in Kichlands who held the .
indignation meeting, if they could but
appreciate the importance of my vote,
although it be but one in one hundred
and seventy, that it counts, considering
that we have two questions of county ,
government ytt to decide, and I do not
know how many more may be sprung,
and also the joint ballot on the election
of justices of the peace, and the loss of
Clark and Lane and the seating of
Green and Hussey in their stead they
would be slow to ak me to resign my
seat in the House of Representatives,
especially if you have at heart, as I
have, that this is a white man's govern
ment and that the Anglo-Saxon race
shall rule it. Very respectfully,
H. E Kino.
The uoik of organizing clubs
continues to progress in this State,
and our farmers are evidently tak
ing a new departure. The subjects'
under disctissiou at these club
meetings are of a practical charac
ter, on such matters as our farmers
are interested in and the interest
manifested in these discussions
shows that the spirit of progress is
not eonliued to a lew men
nor to a lew clubs but is
becoming genera!. In some conn
tics w here there was no club three
mouths aj;o there are several now,
new ones being organized weekly,
and those already orgauized grow
ing stronger in numbers and in
importance. The value of th club
as an aid to the farmer is begin
ning to be appreciated, ami many
who stood aloof when the organiza
tion first began are now taking
hold earnestly and enthusiastically,
ami there is a unanimity of feeling
being developed, perhaps never be
fore witnessed in this State.
The result, so far has been good.
It has resulted in a closer fellow
ship between the followers of the
plow, a determination to co operate
and assist each other move than
they did in the past, to counsel
together, and work together for'
their mutual good. There is evi
dence of the good results in the
determination shown by so many
farmers to diversify their crops
more, to do less of borrowing, buy
ing on credit and mortgaging their
crops and stock, to buy less of com
mercial fertilizers and make more
compost and barn-yard manure, to
cultivate fewer acres aud cultivate
them better. If the clubs had been
instrumental in doing nothing
more in this alone they would have
accomplished a vast amount of
good, lor if these things be done a
few years we'll sec many of those
whq struggle under heavy loads re
lieved, standing upright, feeling
like diifereiit men, hopetul. cheer
ful, independent. There is a mag
netic power m co operation and

Mr. Alexander stated that he hmi
spent yesterday afternoon with State
Treasurer Bain consulting with regard
to the 1 fleet of the adoption of twenty
cents tax. He found that the levy of
twenty cents on the hundred dollars
worth, even with the $100,000 in the
treasury would net meet the require
ments, that the additional appropria
tions of this session, with this levy,
would work a deficit of S20G.OOO.
He was. moreover, greatly surprised
to find that in lsso there was a ehoit
age on land, town and personal prop
erty of S7.000.0CO without authority of
law. That the tax waa levied on the
basis, of the assessment of I8S4. and he'

asked the adoption of the bill as
Before the second reading of the bill
Mr. Alexander moved to amend sections
2 and 3 by inserting 25c. and 7?c. in '
place of 20c. and 60c. He said that he
had a cold and could not enlarge upon ,
the subject, but as chairman of the
finance committee he would call to
mind his warnings, and would urge
members te appropriate enough money.
An amendment to be called section .
4?, by Mr. Alexander, was adopted, ,
allowing a sum cot to exceed S2,500 to
the State treasurer, to collect taxes

(Junker Bridge Koad.
Raleigh, Feb. 28, 1887. j
Ei'ixoii Journal: 1 beg leave to re-1
ply through your columns to my es-1
teemed and venerable friend Dr. Charles
Duffy. The gentleman has seen fit to j
address me in an open and public letter !
and in reply to what has become of our :
road, (Quaker Bridge) if I wascorrectly
informed bv MessrB. F. D. Koonce and j
Dr. J. L. Nicholdson, the gentleman has
signed it away to build the Planters' '
Railroad on. or has petitioned the county I
commissioners to do so, and F. ID. j
Koonce informed me that they, the
commissioners, had done bo in writing. !
I will say in justice to my friend Dr. '
Duify that he did. however, direct a
letter to me and Koonce told me that 1
Dr. Nicholdson handed it to him to give j
to me. There was no envelope on it. 1
But Koonce did not hand it to me until !
half-past 12 o'clock on the next day J
after we appeared before the Senate 1
committee on internal improvements 1
tne nignt oetore. in earn letter my
friend Dr. Duffy did earnestly, implore
and intreat me to stand by the Quaker
Bridge Road : but Koonce, in one of his
sharp tricks, did not band me the letter
until the time stated above. I read the
letter and endorsed on it, returned to
Koonce, naming the day and hour and
minute and made memorandum on my
book of the indorsement in the presence
of Koonce. I will now inform the
Docpor that before the East Carolina
Railroad and Land Company can get
the right of way and the right of domain
over the Quaker Bridge or Core Creek
Road that the bill provides by amend
ment, that Senator "Warren, the chair
man on internal improvements, put on
at my suggestion and after consulting
with Major Finger and written out by
Col. Humphrey and considered with
the bill, that the said corporation should
first get the consent of the board of
commissioners and the consent in writ
ing of the board of education of the
State. The latter was at the suggestion
of Maj. Finger and the first was inserted
in the original bill. So my good friend
will perceive that the whole matter is
left in the hands of the literary board
and the board of commissioners of
Jones and Onslow. Senator Adams
also demanded that an amendment
should go on the bill that the said cor
poration should construct its line
through said White Oak swamp near its
centre, which was accepted. I also de
manded, as C. E. Foy and representa
tive "White well know, that I had a sec
tion added, that the said corporation
should commence to construct its road
within twelve months, and that they
should complete to New River, in Onslow-
county, within four years.
My friend further asks that the
Quaker Bridge Road should be com
pleted, and that its line of construction
to Tar Landing be also completed. I
would ask of my good friend if that
piece of contemplated road ruusthrough
the Slate lands; and I will, further ask
him if he did Bign away his right in the
road as Koonce states, aMd if so the re
buke of Nathan to David: "Thou art the
man.'" does not apply to me, and think
ing men will construe it to their own
notion, and in his conclusion that he
demands a strict observance of the
views thus expressed, and that there
can be no difficulty in carrying out the
plan laid, and that the danger is in get
ting confused by interference with no
other object in view than self-agran-dizement.
Now if Koonce has correctly
informed me, he laid the plan by sign
ing away the right in the public road
and the self-agrandizement spoken of
must lie at his own door, and not mine.
And in conclusion allow me to say to
my good friend that if I have miscon
strued his public letter I. as an honest
man. beg his pardon.

The Governor yesterday respited
Henry Artis. col., who is in jail in
Goldsboro under sentence of death.
The execution was to have been today,
but a respite of ten days was granted
in order that the prisoner might present
an application and petition for commu
tation of sentence.
His crime is that of murder, having
killed his daughter-in-law with an axe
while in a fit of drunken insanity. The
reprieve was granted at the request of
the judge and the councei assigned to
defend the prisoner.
The Governor also commuted the sen
tence of Lucy Morgan, convicted at the
August term. Is6. of Rowan Superior
Court of infanticide and sentenced to be
hanged the ISth of March, 1?57, to life
in the penitentiary.
Reason?: The only witness, a most
intelligent physician declares that he
could not say that the child came to ita
death by violence. It might have been
smothered in the straw without inten
tion of the prisoner to kill. The judge,
solicitor -and many good people aeked
f r commutation. A'eics and Observer.
