against him at the recent term of court

that the failure to try the present in

If Holton fails of confirmation and
Blackburn is acquitted, it is said' three

In an interview with Supt S. M.

school visiting in Craven ccunty for this
winter, the Journal, has learned some
most satisfactory news, as to the edu
cational situation in this county, out
side of this city, as well as regarding
some matters in this city. :
Mr- Brinson has visited schools in
every township, not every school, but
57 in all, and while most of the schools
are about over for the term, there are
few ptill in session. The outlook in
fill townships is favorable. at,d every
thing ia encouraging, and particularly
in the way of better school houses and
new school houses, is tne prospect
bright. At Fort Barnwell there is to
be a new school building to cost $1,200,

consolidation of two Bchool districts,
also a $1,200 building. Vanceboro if to

There was no session of the Federal
Court yesterday morning. It was ex
pected yesterday that B. F. Sprinkle of
Reidsville, would be present and the
formal proceedings of entering the
mandate of the circuit of Appeals ap
proving J,udge Boyd s sentence two
years ago of the defendant to the pen
itentiary at Atlanta would be had.
Last night by agreement it was- ar
ranged for Sprinkle to appear Friday
and to submit himself to the judgment
of the court. . , ,. . ,
An order was received from Circuit
Judge Nathan Goff this morning to the
effect that a regular term of Circuit

sion in Asheville to heap cases from
South Carolina, the Eastern and West
ern Districts of North Carolina and the
Western District of Virginia.
An inadvertant injustice was done
some of the defendants indicted in the
Federal Court here for alleged "frauds
against the government, by the state
ment in the correspondence yesterday
that John W. Hasty was present while
many were absent, it is learned this
morning that every one of the defend-
antsv represented by Messrs Adams,
Bynnm, McNeill, Aycock, Hand, Wat
son, to-wit; Officers Hasty, Samuel.
Hardin, Smith and Walker were on
hand, ready to know the order of the
court.. Their absence from the bar,
and the statement by Judge Boyd
that it would be useless to try Hasty
and have to try others over again, gave
rise to the impression that he alone
was present '
