temptation to iniquity growing out
of triumph and of power.
Passions are easily quickened
between classes and faction in a
popular uprising. . It is necessary
for the publicist himself to
arouse feelings of protest and
of indignation among the ieo
ple and these feelings when
aroused too often inspire in
human nature,, which is about the
same the world over, a disposition
to punish opposing classes as well
as to establish their own right. It
is too often true that out of great
reform movements there develops
a spirit of retaliation which is
sometimes prejudical to justice.
Here, if anywhere, the man of
conscience in public affairs should
not be tempted to ride too joyously
with the triumphant tide of re
formers, but should stand without
hesitation with a restraining hand I
and a warning voice against action
or legislation that even smacks of
punishment or persecution.

way and the State of North Caro
lina, Governor 11. R Glenn one day
had a caller, who edged into the
Executive Chamber at Kaleigh and
tossed a weather beaten felt hat on
a chair. He was a mountaineer,
long, lxny,' muscular, with a black
beard covering his face. He was
lerhaps sixty years old.
"Well, what can I do for you?"
asked Governor Glenn.
"Governor," was the reply,
straight from the shoulder, "we
all hearn up in the mountain that
you had dug o' out Union ftgin, ris
up the old nag and was going to
fight her out, and I'm here to list
for the fracas.'
The report of the struggle be
tween the Federal judiciary and
the State courts, that new species
of State rights, had reached the
mountain fastnesses of the State in
the shape of a report that North
Carolina had seceded under Glenn,
and was at war with the Union.
The mountaineer If ad .walked
twenty miles down from the hills
to get into the fray.
"My friend," explained the Gov-
4 I 1 .
ernor, you nave oeen misinrorm
ed. There , is no war. In fact,
we were never more in the Union
than we are right now, and we are
going to stay. That is all over.
Our fight is now in the courts.
Go home and don't be alarmed.
North Carolina will take care of
herself without leaving the Union."
Just as you say,Gov'nor," said
the mountaineer. But I'm here
to say that I fit in 'CI, and I'm
ready again as soon as the ole
North State calls."

After enjoying his freedom for
twenty years, ten of which were
spent in Winston, Calvin West
moreland, a' white man who es-
caped from the State convict
force at work on the old C. F. &
V. Y. Railroad in 1887, was re
arrested here this afternoon by
Jailer (). W. Hanner uiion infor
mation received a few days ago
from Mr. T. M. Arrington, the
State iienitentiary clerk. Jailer
Hanner will carry Westmoreland
to Haleigh Friday and turn him
over to the ienitentiary author
ities. Westmoreland is about 50 years
old. He was tried at Danbury,
Stokes county, February 'J, 1885,
on the charge of larceny. He
was convicted and sentenced to
three years in the jienitentiary.
He was put out with a force of
hands in the Caie Fear and Yad
kin Valley Hail road where he
worked one year, eleven months
and fifteen days. On January 17,
188, lie made Jns escape. He
came to Winston-Salem eight or
ten years ago and has resided
here continuously ever since. He
has a wife and several children.
Westmoreland has been work
ing at the carpenter's trade since
coming to Winston-Salem, and
has paid for his own home and
made a useful citizen. West
moreland thinks that he will lx
able to escape by pleading the
statute of limitation. He asked
Jailer Hanner to wait until Friday
to carry him to Haleigh in order
that he might have time to con
fer with counsel. Mr. Hanner
will comply with the request.
Well, That's All Right.
Some of the papers are throw
ing conniption fits because it is
announced that Stanford White's
widow is alx)ut to marry tlie for
mer partner of the late husband.
We fail to see why there should
be any wails over this. Mrs.
White, as we understand the case,
walked alone for many years.
She never had her husband's love,
although she was an earth angel.
Now that he is under the ground,
and now that a gentleman wants
to marr.v her, why not let the
ceremony proceed without any
brass band interjection or objection.
Surely she has a right to love
and if White was the kind of a
man it seemed he was when the
roof garden was ablaze with his
splendid glories, why not let the
widow of the fiend have something
out of life that her heart craves.
To lx? sure.

A Way to Get Good Roads.
t Washington l'oft,)
The conservative old State of
Pennsylvania has taken a stand on
the subject of road improvement
that is likely to cause a shaking of
dry liones in other States. Under
the instruction of one of the ablest
judges in the state, the grand jury
of Venango County ha.s indicted
twenty-four township road super
visors, charged with criminal neg
lect of duty ju failing to keep their
roads in repair. The indicted men
are lieing apprehended anil will soon
be placed on trial. The action of
the grand jury is understood to Ih
based largely upon a decision of
the Pennsylvania Supreme Omit,
which holds that"road supervisors
are punishable by indictment for
neglecting or refusing bo open or
repair a public highway." ;
While this prosecution of road
officers is novel, and, erhaps, un
precedented, a little consideration
shows that itis entirely reasonable.
These men are public, : officers.
charged with certain "imjiortant
luties. They have taken an oath
to perform their duties; properly,. '
and in many States they are paid
a salary as well as their actual trav
eling exienses. Often they are.
lermitted to, control the, disburse
ment of large sums of money. Jf
this money disappears 'without any
evidence of road improvement
or if the road supervisors are
notorious neglectful of. their duties
it is the "duty of the grand jury to
indict them. The mere? fact ,'hat
this course has never lieen follow
ed Ufore is no reason why, with
the.awakened public feeling against
ollicial misconduct, it should not
le followed now.
The public highways' of the
United States in the' rural districts
rank with the worst roads. in the'
explored world! They are, worse
than those of of any other civilized
nation. During recent j years ef
forts have leen made to improve
them, but the indifference and par
simony of the backwoods commun
ities are appalling oljistacles to
progress. Nevertheless,, progress
must le made, if the county is to
develop its resources td the lst
advantage. The roads; must le
improved in spite of sloth and
ignorance. The Pennsylvania .
method of getting after; roa('
pervisors with the sharp stick of
the law will be watched with keen
interest in other States where the
the leaven of discontent is working..
If, the Pennsylvania road suicr
visors go jail for neglecting roads,
it will le well for road suiervisors
in other States to take warning.
The action of the Pennsylvania
grand jury, in any event, cannot
fail to le of benefit in j reminding
the public that it has the remedy
for neglected roads in its own
hands. If there is no law provid
for the punishment of road sujer
visors who swindle the public, that
employs them, such a law can U
