Greenshoro, Aug. 14. The refusal of
Governor Glenn to remit the sentence
of imprisonment on ex-Revenue officers
G. W. Samuel and J. W. Hasty for the
assault and battery on Editor Deal at
Wilkesboro, to a fine was generally ex
pected here, and is as generally com
mended by all who have k apt up with
the case in Wilkes, and the subsequent
developments in the trials of the reve
nue officers in the Federal court here.
Both men are out on bond, but their
friends here say they will at once surJ
render themselves to the jailer at
Wilkesboro and begin the service of
their sentence. Their being in jail
when the special term of the Federal
court meets here the first Monday in
September to continue the trials of
revenue officers indicted for alleged
frauds against the government, will in
ill probability work a continuance of
all the cases.
Samuel has already been convicted in
this court, and sentence was deferred,
awaiting the disposition of other cases.
One of these to he tried is against
Hasty, indicted for conspiracy with
distillers, false reports, etc. So on the
whole, the imprisonment of these men
at that time, may redound to the gener
al benefit of all the revenuers urder in
dictment, by gradually easing upon
these cases, until finally the whole
batch will be deadened out of court and
nothing further done with any of the
parties, convicted or yet to be tried.
Such a denouement has been freely pre
dieted from the very beginning by many
observant people, who while commend
ing District Attorney Holton for his
remarkable perseverance and ability in
prosecuting the cases, have realized
that he could not forever stand alone
against the whole allied forces of the
republican organization in North Caro
lina, backed by the powerful influence
of Internal Revenue Commissioner
Yerkcs, and his subordinate heads in
North Carolina. It is well known that
Collector Harkins lost his job on ac
count of his nudging up the depart
ment of justice officials in the prosecu
tions, instead of siding with the forces
under Yerkes, who have from the first
resented bittorly the indictment and
conviction of their leading lieutenants
in the revenue service and hardest
workers in the political field.
State Chairman Adams, has been the
Attorney, leading counsel for all these
indicted r avenue officers, and has done
his full professional duty in defending
them, and yet, some of the Blackburn-
ites are so bitter in their spite against
them, that they are now saying that if
Judge Adams bad not put on letting
the Governor act on these applications
for a fine instead of imprisonh mt,
Hasty and Samuel could have f nished
serving their sentence of three and six
months in time to have done campaign
work for Blackburn in Surry, Wilkes
and Cabarras counties, and also have
voted at the election. Now they will
not beable to vote or to take in the
campaign rounding up others for Black
bum. Its a funny world. :

merce here last night a resolution was
adopted, authorizing President Battle

ble under the amended freight rate bill
recently passed by Congress. This Com
mittee is to thoroughly investigate the
question of freight discrimination, the
terms of the new law, and report back
to the Chamber, such measures as they
may think will be necessary to betoken
to obtain relief from present freight
rate discrimination against Greensboro.
President Battle announced that owing
to the importance of the work proposed
he will ask for time to announce the

Another resolution adopted looking to
Wove freight service, was the reco

and for other crops.
It is intimated that there may be
considerable insurance legislation at the
next term cf the legishture. This
seems to be the outlook. Quite a lot of
interest is manifested in the meeting to

holders of the Mutual Life and the New

opinion that there will be a very large
representation on that occasion.

Thomas Duncan of High Point this
morning, notifying him to watch in
coming trains and the Kegister or

John Patterson is demonstrating won
derful ability as a base ball player. He
has out played several times the excel
jent record he made on the U. of N. C.
team, since his engagement with the
Stroudsburg club his playing has been
really phenomenal end not only has he
made good in the box but at the bat as
well. In one game not long ago he
made a home run and a three bagger
and he is continually making surprises
at an all around good player. The Strouda
burg paper says of him in one of his
best games: "Ptttreson, pitcher for
Stroudsburg and in the first six innings '
but three men faced him each time. He
had excellent control and formed nine
men". v'. " 1 j: vy!. v ,.V: f
"Not only did Patterson pitch well
but he fielded well and batted 1000. In
three times at but he had two imglet
and a double." v
In an account of another game a
paper says of him: "In the very first
inning Patterson made a glorious ran
over the foul line from left field posi
tion and gathered in Stroudaburg's foul
fly. He was cheered to the echo. Pat
terson took care of Snooks fly next and
the plucky little North Carolinian was
kept busy."
