PROF. COON NOT CORRECT
Supt. Joyner Makes Correction of
Statement That Caused Reproach
to the State.
Raleigh, Special, Superintendent
of Education J. Y. Joyner has issued
his statement in refutation of the
charges of Superintendent C. L.
Coon, of the Wilson public schools
made in Atlanta before the Confer
ence for Education in the South that
North Carolina was likelv spending
only $402,658 on her negro schools,
leaving $26,539 of the North Carolina
funds paid by negroes that did not
reach their schools, his figures being
based on the 1908 statistics.
In an elaborate statement Superin
tendent Joyner ins t& that negroes
that year received twice its much for
school maintenance as they paid into
the school fund, the exact figures be
ing $253,979 paid in and $460,015 ex
pended for negro schools. Superin
tendent Joyner insists that Prof.
Coon, who wi for some time connect
ed with the State Department -of Edu
cation, erred in his estimates of the
proportion of poll tax and other
sources of the school fund revenue
which are not designated as to race
sources. Sharp and unjust criticisms
of a number of Northern papers elicit
ed Mr. Joyner ?s statement.
Pardoned But Retaken.
Raleigh, Special. Governor Ivitch
in has had William Lawder, of Mor
ganton, whom he pardoned in April,
arrested, and the prisoner must show
cause why his pardon should not be
revoked, or he will resume his term.
Lawder was convicted at the March
term, 1908, of Burke Superior Court,
of selling spirituous liquor without
license, and sentenced to jail in three
cases for terms aggregating eighteen
months. On April 10, 1909, Governor
Kit chin granted him a pardon on con
dition that he remain law abiding and
of good behavior. It has since been
made to appear to the Governor by af
fidavits and otherwise, that he h-is re
peatedly violated the conditions of his
pardon by being convicted and fined
for selling liquor without license.
The Governor has, therefore, issued a
warrant for hi arrest and will thor
oughly investigate the matter. Final
action will be taken when the facts
are fully ascertained.
