In the opinion of this court, effective only
within the military lines of the United

In North Carolina which could be held
as opposed to good morals or the public

The Carbondale 'Now Era' gives tho
vote of Du Qoulu on tho proposition to
subscribe $50,000 to tho Cairo & St. Louis
railroad, as 30 for and 701 against, and
comments thereon as follows:
"In doing this Du Quoin ha- put tho

This is rather tart, but wo cuunot say
that a word of it Is uncalled for. It Is,
however, the opinion of homo of our best
lawvors that tho proposition has pre
v.illod. Tho law governing tho election
nt to tho charter of tho

requires only a majority of tho votes

of tho manufactured and of tho Northern
article, Is only ono cent per pound; and
already another artificial process has been
patented by a citizen of New Orleans,
