": , The treasury of a county In this State has made a charge of t per cent eotamla on $30,000 of reoelpu of school fond for 1899-1900 and or I per cent oa the Bute appropriation for 1900-1901 to public schools. Be was allowed this by the oonnty board, under the advice of the county attorney. The Bute Superintend ent of public Instruction disallowed these commissions. . The county board refused to demand of the treasurer to re fund them. The matter has gone to the attorney general, who fully auttalns the ruling of the State Superintendent. It Is said here today that President . Roosevelt will appoint Associate Justice Robert M. Douglas to the position de clined by Senator McLanrln of 8. 0. ' It Is said by friends of Judge George H. Brown that In such an event he will be appointed to succeed Douglas.-1 It Is said the State executive committee would' so :, recommend and that the appointment would be until the next general elec tion. The Governor pardons Montfort Green, of dates county, convicted of larct ny and M-nlenced 'to one year In tbe peniteDlinry. " The petition ,fcr par don was prepared at the request of the Jury which convicted, and also at the re quest of the solicitor. Republicans of high position In their parly tell your correspondent that their State convention will not antagonize tbe franchise amendment to tbe consti tution, but will recognise It as part of the constitution and tbe law. Two violent Insane white men, Mike Cosgrovo and Ambrose Plerce.who have made jail life hero a terror to the Other inmates have been placed In the asylum here, two of the Inmates of the latter " having been transferred to the county home. Cosgrove tore out all his beard and moustache and also cut himself In a thousand places with a tin drinking cup which he broke Into pieces. , , .. . Open cotton bolls .were found In a field here yesterday, near the Pilot cotton mills. The Stale Superintendent of Public la ". struction today sent the following lm portent letter to the county superlnten . dents and County Boards of Ednca- '. tlon.' "Since the decision of the Supreme Court in the case of Hookn. et al. vs. Town of Greenville, tome confusion aeems to have arisen In regard to the distribution of the school fund. , In re sponse to numerous Inquiries from coun ' ty superintendent, membeas of Boards of Education and others, I have deemed It necessary to send out this letter of In struction, In the case referred to above, the question of the distribution of the school fund was not directly at Issue, therefore, what the court says upon that subject Is what the lawyers call a dictum Instead of a decision. , Section 24 of the Public School law of N. C, directs the County Boards of Education to appor tion the school fund of the county to the 'various townships per capita. It further directs them to distribute and apportion the school money to each townahlp so as . to givo to each school In said townahlp, ' for each rnoc the same length of school term, as nearly aa may, be, , each year, ' and to U.ve'propar regard for the grade of mora to be done and the qualifica tions f the teachers required "In each school for each race, and fix the maxi mum salary for each school In the conn- try. This law having been legally en acted by tbe , Lrglslat ore, must be as sumed to be constitutional until it la ex- ' preesly decldt'd to be unconstitutional,' I can not think that what appears to be a dictum of tbe Supreme Court upon j a question not directly at Issue, In a case rinvolvlag fthe ' constitutionality of j a special act of the Legislature, applicable only o a ' particular locality, can be ' n nderxtood, or was Intended by the court to br understood, as setting aside Sec tion 21 of the General School Law Of the State, aad radically Changing the entire method of distribution of the school . fund. Therefore, 1 feel It my duty to In struct County Boards of Education to continue to apportion the school fund at directed by the Public School Law of North Carolina."
