(Special to Virginian-Pilot.)
Raleigh. N. C, Feb. 11.?The proposl
tion to take COO of the Slate convicts
and employ them on three of the Roa
noke farm in sugar beet growing is re?
newed. Strange to say, the authorities
do not take to the idea. The truth is
that the penitentiary is in politics and
tintll It is removed from that sphere
.Will never be a paying institution. It
Is certainly costing the State a great
sum now. This Legislature will have
a heavy bill to pay for debts and for
this year's maintenance.
The formation of the State Bar Asso?
ciation last night was very successful.
The attendance gratified the promoters.
It is Btrange that no association had
before been formed.
Not until next Tuesday will the Su?
preme Court announce the names of
the applicants for attorneys' license
who passed the examination.
ILLICIT DISTILLERIES RAIDED.
Revenue officers have made another
raid in Johnston county and destroyed
three illicit distilleries.
The severe weather continues here
Yesterduy the temperature was S above
zero; to-day it was lit. The cold to?
day, owing to a northeast wind, was
felt more than It was yesterday.
SUPERIOR COURT JUDGES.
The Democratic caucus three weeks
ngo decided against increasing the
number of Superior Court judges, but
the committee will recommend that two
be added, nnd that the Eastern and
Western Criminal Circuits be abolished.
Bills are now under way in the Leg?
islature to take from the fuslonlsts con?
trol of eyery Institution or department,
save those in \ I i h the incumbents
were elected by the people.
A sharp fight i i - spec ted on the *tex
tile school bill it: ii" Senate.
Odds are laid that the Senate will
pass the bill n tiling the county of
Scotland by ti lv. i-thirds vote.
The Supreme Court will.be called oa
to expedite Hie matter of hearing the
case as to the title to the office of Pen?
itentiary Superintendent. Both sides
have able counsel. Superintendent Day
declares that the court will decide the
act of the Legislature ratified .1 inuary
26th. unconstitutional and void. The
other side say.- Day will certainly be
ousted, and lii.it he has no fo din;:.
There was n failure to agree on a test
case. Day is now obstinate, and says
he will not yield un inch.
IN FAVOR OF WTLSi >N.
It was learned this afternoon that
the Speciul Joint Legislative Commit?
tee! to investigate Governor Russell's
removal of J. W. Wilson as chairman
of the Railway Commission had decided
in favor of Wilson, it is als,? under?
stood that the decision is unanimous.
A DAY'S LEGISLATION'.
The House passed a bill to take from
the fusion directors and Superintend?
ent of the Penitentiary ail power to
pay out money or sell crops from the
farms, and conferring tIiis power on
the new Democratic board. It is ev
?pected this will force Captain W. H,
Day to resign an Superintendent, this
being the purpose of the hill.
By a vote of 01 to 01 the House adopt?
ed a resolution to impeach W. L. Nor
wood, Judge of the Twelfth district,
for drunkenness, and W. R. Allen, J.
W. Foushee and Locke Cralge Wore ap?
pointed to present the articles of im?
peachment to the Senate. It is t Re
first Impeachment since that of Gov?
ernor Holden, In 1871.
