(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.

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. Norfolk, Va., Dec. 18 L. Sevier was today elected Vice president of the Sea board Air Line. : !

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.

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.

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.
