AN ERROR CORRECTED.
The Figures Published in the
State Papers Relative to
Tax Values ot Counties
' Wrong as to tiuil- ,
..-Vfbrd County. .
(Special Correspondence. )
Greensboro, Dee. 19 The State cor
poration commission's repirt of prop
erty values of the various .counties,
published in the News and Observer in
full' yesterday morning, and sent out
broadcast by Raleigh correspondents,
does Guilford county an , injustice. In
the group of counties which show the
largest increase, Guilford is ranked
fifth, with a total valuation of 114,785 -504.
. An examination in the office of
the register of deeds of Guilford coun
ty shows that the Corporation commis
sion has used the exact figures returned
for 11905, while their returns for 1906
on record there, as forwarded to Raleigh
State unless the figures given are ws
inaccurrate as to other counties as they
certainly are as to Guilford.
; If as reported, the total taxable in
crease in the State ii $18,000,000, Guil
ford claims the credit of one-twelfth of
toe whole increase, since hers over 1996
was $1,546,922. The publication of
these incorrect figures would not have
created so much feeling here, had not
an actual libel on the county been pub-
a few weeks ago in the report of
i tne commissioner oi laoor. ine report
.states that Guilford's financial condi
tion is "bad,", her school facilities
."poor," educational progress "slow."
I The truth as to Guilford's financial
condition is that with all her nearly
seventeen million dollars ; of taxable
property she does not owe a dollar ex
cept for a recent bond indebtedness of
f 185,000, every dollar of whuh is being
expended in bu'lding good roads. Be.
sides the eitbenditure f t over $50,000
each year in regular county taxes for
public schools, exclusive of the city
schools at High Point and Greensboro,
there was collected last ear in rural
districts which had voluntarily voted
for special school taxes the sum bf $14,
000. Besides this Guilford has within
its borders the' following high schools
snd colleges for young men and wo
men exclusive of the city public schools
of Greensboro and High Point where
over three thousand students from oth
er sections of the state are given first
class educational facilities each year.

Raleigh, Dec. 18 The Supreme court
filed a very important opinion in j the
case of George Hall, convicted qpon his
town confession of being one of the mob
which broke, into the jail at Salisbury
and lynched three negroes. Hall's at
torney after conviction raised the ques
tion of jurisdiction, claiming the court
which tried him was not legal because
Gov. Glenn was out of the State .when
he ordered it in special term and as
signed the judge to hold it '
The Supreme court, Judge Walker
delivering the opinion, holds that Hall
was properly found guilty and the lower
court had the power to so find.' It
holds that the plea of Hall to the juris
diction cannot raise the question as to
the execution of the court but only to
its right to hear and determine causes
upon the assumption that it was ..regu
larly and lawfully constituted and or
ganized. Hall's plea is therefore over
ruled as the record proper shows no
defect in jurisdiction.

Greensboro, Dec 18 At a meet"
ing of the Guilford Battie Ground Chap
ter of the Daughters of the American
Revolution, in ihe Carnegie Library as.
sembly Hall yesterday afternoon Mrs.
Lindsay Patterson, of WinBton Chairman
of tha Jamestown Historical Commit,
tee, and one of the most public, spirited
women in North Carolina, was present
by special' Invitation, and made an
address on the importance of gathering
up all the old relics of the Rev olutionary
war of whatever kind and have them
on exhibit in the historical building at'
.the Jamestown exposition next year.
She -said the principal object in having
North Carolina well represented in this
building is that the, false ideas about
the early life of the state might be cor
rected. If after the exp sition the peo
pie generally continue to misrepresent
the history of North Carolina it would
ba-the state's own fault, for an excell
ent oppotunity is now presented to show
to the world the true facts in regard to
that period. There was no reason why
North Carolina could not have the past
exhibit. When it is remembered that
the Jamestown exposition is to be pure-
a historical one; and the only oen of the
kind ever held, and that hundreds - of
the. world's foremost historians will be
there, it will be seen, at once that it is
highly important that our exhibit equal
or surpass any of the oaher states so
that the Old North State may be given
due credit '
Mrs Patterson stated that she hih
been assured before undertaking the
utmost care would be exercised in the
handling of the articles and sh9 felt rea
sonably sure that all things entrusted
to the Exposition would be returned iu
goob condition. Maj. J. Morehead, pres
ident or the Guilford Battle Ground
Company has tendered the loan of his
valuable collection at the exposition
The ladies present became enthusiastic
at once and twelve of them tendered
the loan of some valuable and treasur
ed pieces of furniture, handiwork, sil
verware, paper books portraits,
tumes; and other things of the
Judge Fred Moore and Solicitor
Brooks left yesterday for Graham to
hold a special term of Alamance Su
perior court called by Governor Glenn
to try two negro women, alleged ac
complices with the negro man under
sentence of death for the burglary of
the home and the shooting of L. Banks
Holt on the night of November 7th. It
is rumored that on account of the sen
ous illness of Mr. Jlolt, an important
witness for the prosecution, the case
may have to be continued.
Last week, in sentencing a young
man from High Point to the roads,
Judge Moore said it was very strange
to him, that the legislature or the coun
ty commissioners did not provide a con
vict uniforms for misdemeanor cases,
distinct from Ihe bated felon stripes of
the criminal. Thismorningata' meet
ing bf the lawyers of the city to" fix a
calendar for January court, Mr, G. S.
Bradshaw, ' introduced a resolution
which was unanimously adopted, re
questing the legislature to prohibit the
use of felon uniforms for persons . sen
tenced to the roads for misdemeanors.
This ought to make ex-Representative
John D. Waddell of Forsyth feel good,
for he vainly, but earnestly sought the
enactment of such a law at two differ
ent sessions of the General Assembly.
Game Warden, John Weatherly's dog
Jack last night "smelled" a trunk at

was confiscated and 150 birds found.

The first of the season birds sold in half
dozen lots ac do cents, inese two iota

Ex sheriff James F. Jordan, who is a
sportsman right, as well aa a first-class
officer and business man, declared that"
in an experience of 29 years, he has
never seen so much game as he finds
this season. ' He is interested in tame
preserves in this and other .codnties of '
the Piedmont section and also In Cum-
berland and Chatham counties east He
I says that owing to the extremsly wet
I snmmor he is satisfied many young

If t cr-p to t' 't be has ever kt.own.
He does not hesitate to attribute the

that no true sportsnran would' shoot

Greensboro, Dec 20 Last night the
board of aldermen in special session in
vestigated the shooting by Policeman
Skeene sometime ago of a negro pris
oner, and decided that while the snoot
ing was unfortunate, it waa not in vio
lation of the law, and the officer did not.
exceed his rights in . the premises. . A
few weeks ago, while bringing to the
lock-up George Wilson, who had been
disorderly and was under the influence
of whiskey at the time, the negro gave
him some trouble, taking the officer's
billet and striking the officer. , The ne
gro man ran and Policeman Skeene
shot at the fleeing man) felling him.
The negro was carried to the hospital
and it ws thought- at first that he
could not live, but while still there and
paralyzed, it is now that he will recover,
The negroes of the city were incensed
at the shooting, and circulated greatly
exaggerated and'; incorrect reports
about it. A negro minister , went to
work and secured money with which to
prosecute the officer. Several lawyers
volunteered their services In Mr.
Skeene's behalf but he decided that
one attorney could be sufficient Col.
Barringer appeared for him. An effort
was 'made last week to have the officer
indicted before the Grand Jury, but it
is said that Solicitor Brooks, after ex
amining the witnesses, said it would be
useless to send a bill. ' The investiga
tion, was heard upon request of police

At night when I went to bed things

up and scratch my body all over, until
I was' as sore as could be, and until I
suffered excruciating pains. I did not

last week on Frazier Jones, convicted

be had simultaneously. A short calcu

months of the coming year. There
never were two better subjects, for the
killing in both' cases was inconceivably
bold, reckless cruel, and causeless.
