RECEIVES REQUEST FOR RES
' IGNATION ALONG WITH
Asheville, Nov. 7. In a formal let
ter Attorney General Mc Reynolds has
requested the resignation of District At
torney Holton and Marshal Logan of
the western district, and District At
torney Seawall and Marshal Dockery
of the eastern district. This is in line
with the demands made upon the at
torney general by the North Carolina
The letter of the attorney general
has of course been treated as official
business and therefore confidential, but
those who have been permitted to see
the official note are amazed at its ten
or. In fact, it is declared by friends
that the Republican officials could not
well resign under the verbiage of the
McReynolds letter without appearing to
impeach the character of their own ser
vices to the government. The letter is
said to set forth that the department
wishes to effect certain changes to alter
"conditions" in the districts and to that
end desires the resignation of those now
holding the offices.
None of the officials concerned will
resign. On the contrary, they will car
ry the fight to the White House should
that drastic step become necessary and
the President may be asked to tell the
country what he meant when he de
clared that Republicans should not be
removed for purely political reasons.
The attorney general does not inti
mate what changes he desires made in
the service, nor does he charge that
any part of the service has been unsat
isfactory. Nevertheless the department
asks that the resignation so worded
as to indicate that the present office
holders are effacing themselves to the
end that the suppositious charges can
be made. As before stated, none of
those concerned have the slightest idea
of resigning, unless their mountain
friends are greatly in error.
Don't "stop" your paper because
the publisher doesn't run it to suit
you. No editor would think of trying
to stop you because you don't run your
business to suit him I.airgh at the
newspaper man, but studiously refrain
from giving him a chance to laugh at
you for thinking you are spiting
him by being one of the few who try
to starve him to death by withdraw
ing support. Give the editor credit
for being honest and he will give you
credit for having common sense. A
people and their paper have more in
terests in common than they have
things to disagree about, but it is simply
astonishing how many newspapers keep
right on running after two to three
people decide to boycott them and
ruin their business by the withdrawal
of support. Wilmington Star.

MASS MEETING OF STRIKERS
State Governor In Address Tells
Strikers He Is In Sym
pathy With Them.
Indianapolis, Nov. 7. Indiana's en
tire National Guard consisting of more
than 2,000 soldiers, are encamped in
different parts of Indianapolis tonight
ready for duty in connection with the
strike of employes of the Indianapolis
Traction & Terminal Company. Spe
cial trains brought the troops under
hurried orders and they were detrain
ed in the suburbs, virtually surround
ing the town.
Great secrecy was maintained as to
the movement and arrival of the mili
tia and few citizens knew that the
troops had been called out until late
The trains bringing the soldiers
were stopped outside of Indianapolis
by officers of the National Guard and
given directions. All companies were
of such number that it was deemed
safe to bring them into the city. This
was done to prevent any clash with
the strikers, who after learning the
troops had been called out were on
the downtown streets in large numbers.
The troops will not begin duty until
early tomorrow morning.
Whether the street cars are to be
manned by soldiers, officers in charge
would not say tonight. Martial law
had not been declared early tonight,
but such a proclamation is expected to
be issued from the Governor's office
I.ate this afternoon nearly .100 wo
men, members of the Garment Work
ers' Union, rushed across the State
House Lawn into the capitol and to
the Governor's office, where they de
manded that Governor Ralston force
arbitration and call a special session
of the State Legislature. Many of the
women were hysterical and Mrs. Edna
Davis, president of the Union, declar
ed: "We are willing to take up arms
to help win this strike.
Governor Ralston, answering the
women, asserted that he had no au
thority to force arbitration, but that
he had taken an oath as Governor of
Indiana, to support the constitution
and to enforce the law. He said he
was in sympathy with the union men,
but could not allow a condition of
lawlessness to exist and it was his
sworn duty to protect life and pro
perty. A suit for a receiver of the street
car company, which was set for hearing
today, was postponed until tomorrow
because of the illness of'an attorney
for the company.
A second suit for a receivership was
filed late today by Judge Frank Roby,
former member of the State Appellate
No attempt was made by the om-
pany to move cars today.
The mass meeting of the strikers at
noon on the State House lawn was at
tended by a large crowd.
All the speakers urged the strikers
to assist in preserving order. When
it was announced that the militia
would be here today the crowd jeer
Governor Ralston was asked to ad
dress the mass meeting. He told the
strikers that he was not responsible for
present conditions and that he had
done everything in his power to ar
range a settlement.
"Within the last five days," said the
Governor, "lives and property have
been destroyed. From my window I
have seen laws violated. When I be
came Governor of Indiana, I took an
oath to see that the laws were enfor
ced and that 1 must do.
BOY SCOUTS TAKE ANOTHER
Yesterday afternoon the local Boy
Scouts took another "hike.' On this
occasion the Scouts were divided into
two bands and while one band went
ahead and "biased a trail" the other
followed several blocks behind, pick

local band of Boy Scouts is proving
popular with the boys of the city and
their number has been Considerably
increased during the past few weeks.
ROBBERS OF FREIGHT CARS
WILL BE TRIED BY THE
(Special to the Journal.)
Birmingham, Ala., Nov. 7 The
Carlin bill, recently passed by Congress
making the robbery of freight oars,
baggage cars, and express cars wrigaged
ia interstate commerce and the robbery
of interstate shipments from platforms
and stations a federal oftenee, is a law
with teeth ia it and sharp ones at that
as was svidonced in the federal court
here when John L. Parker was given
s sentence of six years in the United
States prison for robbing a shiprnen
of shoes consigned to Glazen, Mass.,
from a car in the Birmingham yards
on May 4th. Parker was also implica
ted in robbing a shipment of notions
consigned to Avondale, Ala., from a car
in the Birmingham yards on the night
of July 30th, and Otis Williams and
Arthur Goodeye who assisted him
were given sentences of four years and
six months and three years and six
months respectively in the United States
Under the Carlin law, the prosecution
of car and depot thieves is greatly
simplified and the certainty of convic
tion is much greater as the federal
statutes do not provide the loopholes
found in various state laws through
which many criminals whose guilt
was clearly proved have been enabled
to escape on technicalities. As the re
sult of the operation of this law, it is
believed that criminals will recognize
the danger of tampering with freight
cars and depots and that there will be
a great decrease in thefts of this
character which frequently cause ser
ious inconvenience and loss to shippers
as well as to the railroads.
A DISCARDED i CIGARETTE BE
LIEVED TO HAVE STARTED
Jacksonville, Nov." -7. That cigar
ettes will not only do harm one Way,
but are calculated to do harm in other
ways, is a fact of which Messts.' B. B.
and A. J. Hurst, can state as a truth.
These gentlemen or rather the former
experienced a severe loss by fire
Monday at 2 o'clock when his stables
and barn were burned to the ground.
In the barn was his year's work of
hay, two nice young mules and a mule
belonging to Mr. A. J. Hurst.
Just how the fire was started is
not known, however Mr. "A. J. Hurst,
owner of one of the mules which was
burned, was here yesterday, and
stated that he was satisfied that
it caught from a pipe or cigarette
being smoked by one of the boys,
who were at the time working on
the farm. In the bam was a good lot
of hay, and while around the barn
it is thought that the hay was ignited
and this caused the damage.
Mr. George A. Hurst, a brother
of the gentleman above referred to
was seen, and asked what he thought
from the information he could gain,
the damage would amount to, and
stated, that it could be no less than two
thousand dollars under any circum
stances. He also stated that there
was no insurance whatever. Friends
of these gentlemen throughout the
county will read the above with regret.
