THE SUPERIOR. COURT.
Ir. Konntree Closes the Argument In the
Contest Over the Mayoralty Judge Mc
lver Expects to Hand Down his Decision
Today The Bank of New Hanover Case
Pursuant to adjournment for recess
on Wednesday evening-, the superior
court of New Hanover county met yes
terday at 10 a. m.. His Honor Judge
Argument in the contest Iietween the
four claimants of the mayoralty of
"Wilmington was resumed. All the
formidable array of counsel on both
sides having- been heard, with tke ex
ception of O;orge Rountree, Esq., he re
sumed his ypeech begrun Wednesiay af
ternoon arid closed the argument at
11:40 a. jr.. Mr. Rountree's argument
was a magnificent effort and it is pro
nounced the speech of his ife. He
handled his citations in a masterly
manner, his logic was -consecutive and
telling and his fine reasoning proved
"him a constitutional lawyer of marked
ability. It would be impossible to give
a synopsis of such a speech. His con
tention was that the entire act of
March 9, 1807, providing for the election
of five aldermen and attempting t? au
thorize the governor to appoint five,
is unconstitutional; that the election
and appointment of the aldermen under
it is void and that Mayor W. N. Har
ris. and the old board of aldermen are
still the only legal mayor and board of
aldermen and will be until their suc
cessors are elected and qualified.
Judge Mclver took the facts and argu
ment under advisement, and stated that
he would probably render his decision
Judge Mclver signed a decree in the
cases of John D. Bellamy, Jr., vs. W.
W. Harriss, Jr., et al, and V. A. Wright
et al vs. Giles Westbrook. In the
latter case the defendants took an ap
peal. Ninety days were allowed both
sides to make a statement.
In the case of Gillis & Black sub-contractors,
vs. F. II. Blodgett, contractor
for the building of the Carolina, Ten
nessee and Ohio railroad, a judgment
of $3,000 was given the plaintiffs.
The case of Frank II. Blodgett et al
vs. The Union Construction Company,
was taken up. Mr. J. T. Adams re
ceiver of the construction company was
in court, and on motion of his attorney
John 1). Bellamy, Esq., the receiver
was empowered and authorized to call
for and assess upon any and all stock
holders of the defendant company, who
have not paid for their stock, in value
such an amount up to the face value
thereof as may be necessary to pay off
or discharge the debts of the defendant
company and the costs, charges and at
torney's fees of the receiver. The re
ceiver was empowered to credit the
stockholders with any offset or coun
ter claim to which he may be legally
entitled. He was also empowered to
lring action to compel payment of
stock, if the same is not paid. ""
The court was engaged all of yester
day afternoon in hearing the case of
Smith' et al xs. Junius Davis, receiver
of the Bank of New Hanover. The is
sue involved in this case is whether
the assets of the branch bank of
Wadesboro shall be separated from or
consolidated with the assets of the pa
rent bank at Wilmington. Mr. J. A.
Leak, receiver of the Wadesboro
branch, was in court with his attor
neys, the Hon. II. T. Bennett and the
Hon. James A. Loekhart. of Wades
horo. Receiver Davis was also in
court with his attorneys George Koun
tree, Esq., and Eugene S. Martin, Esq.
The records of the examination before
Ham Jones. Esq., the referee, were
read to the court, and the case was
on trial when the court took a recess
till this morning at 10 o'clock.
The assets of the branch bank at
Wadesboro amount to about $140,000.
When the Bank of New Hanover failed,
the branch bank at Wadesboro was
perfectly solvent, and able to more
than pay off its depositors. If the as
sets are consolidated with the parent
hank, the depositors of the branch
hank will have to come in and share
equally with the depositors of the hank
at Wilmington. This means that they
-will get only 42 to 45 cents on the dollar.
Henry Ward Beecher once informed
a man who came to him complaining
of gloomy and despondent feelings, that
what he most needed was a good ca
thartic, meaning, of course, such a
medicine as Ayefs Cathartic Pills,
every dose being effective.
The Hoard of Aldermen.
Mayor S. P. Wright called a meeting
of the board of aldermen last night at
8 o'clock, but there was no quorum
present and no meeting was held.
Those who put in an appearance were
Mayor S. P. Wright and Aldermen B.
F. Keith, A. J. Hewlett, H. C. Twining,
A. J. Walker and E. M. Green. Alder
man John X Norwood was sick and
Alderman D. J. Benson stayed away.
The three democrats. Aldermen W. E.
Springer, Owen Fennell and W. E.
Yopp, have never attended one of the
meetings of this board.
Mayor Wright was asked what the
meeting was called for, and he said,
"Just to discuss a few things that is
if we get a quorum. I was told, how
ever, that Mr. Lockey said we could
not get a quorum."
City Clerk and Treasurer Rice's
friends remain away from the meet
ings and break the quorum, as they
are confident that when the loard
meets an attempt will be made to re
consider his election as city clerk and

of "The Good of the Order," and the
plans formulated for the development
of the order in the state for the corning
year, was engaged in.
The report of the grand finance com
mittee was read and approved. It
shows that the finances of the Grand
Council are in a most excellent condi
tion. During the year Just closed
there was paid to the widows and or
phans of the deceased members in this
state the magnificent su.n of $78,000, an
amount surpassed by none and equaled
by few of the benefit societies or insur
ance organizations doing business in
North Carolina. The total benefits

in the principal towns of the state and

It was decided to hold the next ses
sion of the Grand Council in Durham
on the third Wednesday in April, 1S98.
Business closed at 1:30 p. m. and the
Grand Council then adjourned.
Yesterday afternoon the visiting del
egates and officers of the grand council,
were again the guests of Cornelius Har
nett council. They were taken on a
most enjoyable excursion on the steam
er Wilmington, Captain John W. Har
per, to Old Brunswick, where they vis
ited the historic ruins of Fort Ander
son and old St. Phillips church. The
steamer left her dock in the city at 3
p. m., with the grand council, and the
committee of Cornelius Harnett coun
cil, and a number of invited guests, and
steamed up the river so those on board
could get a good view of the city from
the harbor and especially get a glimpse
of the monitor Nantucket, which was
a sight to some. It was the intention
to go to Carolina Beach but the pro
gramme was changed and the boat
headed for Old Brunswick, where a stop
of twenty , minutes was made. The
steamer got back to the city about 6:30
p. m., with' all well pleased with the
Captain Harper, as usual, made
everyone feel at home, especially the
visitors, and never tired in pointing out
places of interest along the river. His
courtesies were highly appreciated by
During the trip down and on the re
turn, refreshments consisting of ice
cream, cake, coffee, sandwiches and
cigars were served under the excellent
management of W. A. Farriss, of the
Palace Bakery. He deserves great
credit for the excellence of the refresh
ments and the splendid style in which
he served them.
There was the greatest abundance
and everyone was satisfied and well
pleased with the reception accorded
them. Mr. Louis Weil, agent for the
Anheuser-Busch Brewing Company,
had charge of the beer, and those who
know Louis know that he was the right
man in the right place.
The committee of arrangements con
sisting of Messrs. B. J. Jacobs.il. Burk
himer. Colonel Roger Moore, James W.
Monroe, Sol Sternberger, Jr., and Col
onel Walker Taylor are entitled to all
the credit for the excellent manner in
which they have managed and enter
tained the grand council during their
visit here. Wilmington's hospitality
never suffers if left to their hands.
Grand Regent Harris, one of Ra
leigh's young active business men, is
an accomplished parliamentarian and
made a model presiding officer.
Grand Secretary Dr. J. Howell Way,
a prominent physician of Waynesville.
was re-elected unanimously without
Grand Vice Regent A. M. Scales,
Guilfod's popular young senator, was
re-elected by acclamation. j
Grand Treasurer A. M. Powell, of j
Raleigh, was promptly on hand with his
check book to pay the delegates at the
close of the session. This Is his eighth
term in that office.
Dr. W. H. H. Cobb, of G.ddsboro, the
state medical examiner, is one of that
city's popular physicians and is pres
ident f the board of state medical ex
aminers. Tlv three expert story tellers of the
Grand Council were Dr. Cobb, Captain
Kendrick and our own Mr. N.
Ja obi, who were the centre of a highly
entertained crowd on the excursion.
The popular Mr. Ike Greenewald for
eleven years past treasurer of Corne
lius Harr.ett council, was unanimously
re-elected Grand Orator, and his many
friends in the Grand Council predict
higher honors for him in the near fu
ture. The Rev. S. Mendelsohn, D. D., gave
a pleasant dinner party on yesterday to
the visiting officers of the Grand Coun
cil. No small objection which young folks
had to the old-time spring-medicines
was their nauseousness. In our day
this objection is removed and Ayer's
Sarsaparilla, the most powerful and
popular of blood -purifiers, is as pleas
ant to the palate as a cordial.
THE BOY'S BRIGADE.
An Interesting Clipping From the Chicago
"Kuaptack" About Wilmingtonlang.
The 'following clipping taken from
the Knapsack, a monthly printed at
Chicago in the interest ot young Amer
icans, is published by request and will
no doubt interest our readers:
"Our brigade is, so far as we know,
the only one in North Carolina. Our
char.er number is 536, taken out in
September, 1S0G, with the officer's com
missions. Our boys wear grey uni
forms with North Carolina brass but
tons, and they drill with guns and of
ficer's swords and belts.and bayonets
and scabbards we have a very beauti
ful Hag with United States Maltese
The brigade drills every Monday
night, and the boys are making splen
did progress. They take great pride in
this branch of their work, as well as
interesting themselves closely in the
other features of the brigade.
Their captain, Colonel Walker Tay
lor, has given the brigade a great deal
of his time and atttention, and the boys
appreciate it all, for they look to him,
morally and spiritually as in other
ways. Colonel Taylor has been a mem
ber of the North Carolina state guard
for a number of years, having heid
various positions and is at present lieu
tenant colonel of the crack 2nd regi
ment of the North Carolina state guard.
We notice the third annual encamp
ment will begin July 6, 1S97. We will
not be able to attend, but we are ar
ranging for an encampment of our
brigade here, and will probably have
it in July also, perhaps near the date
of the national encampment. Our bri
gade went in a body last year to the
encampment of the state sard and
were the guests of honor to those
troops. The commander made the boys
a speech, toasts were givn them wa
termelons, too and altogether they had
a right royal reception.
Now we want to see other companies
formed in this state, and then we can
have a state encampment of boys'
brigade's alone. This last, however, is
a secondary consideration. Besides

young fellows on a higher plane for

TARIFF BILL AMENDMENT--
The Seimte Sub-C mmittee to Complete its
Work by Tuesday-Some of the Change
Made Senator llutler'.s Proposed Amend
Washington. April 22. The republican
tariff sub-committee c.f the senate finance
committee is working now with its eyes
fixed upon next Tuesday as the day to re
port the tariff bill to the full committee,
but without feeling at ail confident that
this result can be accomplished. All will
depend upon the interruptions that may
take place, the persistence and influence
of these- who seek changes and the de
mands of other senators. The bill may
not go tc the full committee before the
end of the week.
The committee is also informing those
who seek to secure changes in the bill
that their suggestions are not likely to
be considered after the present week and
that, consequently, whatever amendments
are to be made will be finally passed upon
before the close or" the wot k n Saturdav
The committee has passed tentatively
upon almost all questions before it and
finally upon those of small importance,
leaving for the last the most important
items over which there are differences of
Probably the most persistent demands
have come from the western republican
senators for greater protection to west
ern interests. .
The entire wool schedule will not be
advanced, but the probabilities are strong
that wools of the third-class will be.
Those of the first and second-class wil;
probably be reduced. The western sena
tors who have agreed to the Mantit
schedule sent this schedule to the com
mittee today and will probably tomorrow
or Saturday urge its adaption. It it
also probable that the classification wil;
be made more definite than that of the
original Dingley bill. The wool question'
is receiving the committee'? best atten
tion, as it is recognized that the fate of
the bill may 1-j-nl somewhat ujon it?
satisfactory adjustment. There has ul.o
been a spirited contention over the subject
of a duty on hides, the proposition for
which has been strongly entagonized bv
the tanning interest.
A decision has t-n practically reached
to make hides dutiable at thf rat of 1U
cents per i-our.d. The advocates of an in
creased duty on lead ore are said to have
also won, and according: to the ob
tainable reports the McKinlev rate of
$3) per ton will be restored. Th-TV will
also be a rebate on tin ut-i in canning
fruit and tis?h to lf exported.
One of th problems of the committee
has been to satisfy Senator Jones, of Ne
vada, silver republican, who holds the
balance of power in the finance commit
tee. He has be-n made acquainted with
the work of th cemmitue so far as it
has progress! and it is understood that
he is quite satisfied with the bill.
Senator Butler, of North Carolina, today
introduced a numlx-r of amendments
which he proposes to o.fer at the prci-r
time to the tariff bill. The proposed
amendments put cotton ties, jtlt and
jute, fabrics on the free list li-t: increase
the duty on rice in the hull to 1 cent per
pound, decrease the duty on coal tar dyes
from 35 per cent, to ST. per cent, "ad
valorem and make clearer specifications
than those of the Dingley bill on mica.
Ground mica is made dutiable at 4 cents
TIIE BASE II A Li I j SEASON.
The National League Opened the Season
Yesterday Under Pleasing Auspices The
Washington, April 22. The National
League baseball season for ls37 opened to
day in the various league cities under
pleasing auspices. The weather was all
that could bo desired and the total at
tendance reached the enormous figure of
61,430. Philadelphia led with 17,014. As a
rule the scores were close and the games
hotly contested. The opening contest in
this city was witnessed by a large audi
ence, among whom was Speaker Reed and
a number of other politicians as well as
a great many society people. The Sena
tors and Bridegrooms were evenly match
ed and but for DeMontieville's wild throw
in the sixth inning, the home team would
undoubtedly have won.
$A number of New York enthusiasts
journeyed to Philadelphia and saw the
Giants taken into camp to the tune of Z
to 1. The game was rather dull and long
drawn out, and on the part of the New
Yorkers was somewhat unsteadily and
poorly played. Their four errors, ail wild
throws, gave the local club their runs.
In the seventh inning Taylor and Hall
man reached first on wi'd throws by
Davis and Joyce, and La Joie then sent
both home with a three base drive to left
centre field. La Joie scored on Dele
hanty's hit. The Phillies lost a chance
for sevf ral runs by careless base running
Rusie joined the New Yorkers today. He
is in excellent condition and will begin
practice with the team tomorrow.
At Baltimore, the Champions defeated,
the Bostons in the presence of K.'hj en
thusiasts. For s-ix innings excitement ran
high. Klobe Danz. who replaced Stivetts
in the middle of the sixth, showed great
speed, but proved wild and ineffective.
The season was opened by a parade of
the home and visiting teams through the
principal streets of the city. The preces
sion was headed by the Fifth regiment
band and drum corps and following them
came a long line of handsome equipages
bearing Manager Hanlon. Treasurer Von
Der Herst. a host of prominent citizens
who are devotees of the game and the
players. A handsome float draped in red.
white and blue held aloft the Temple cup
and the penant of '94, '95 and '9G.
The. strong Cleveland team met defeat
at the hands of Louisville, the "tail
enders" of the league. The latter out
played their opponents both in the field
and at the bat. The Clevelands scored
their first and only run in the first in
ning on Burkett's single, a sacrifice.
Frazer's wild pitch and an infield hit. For
the remainder of the game Frazer had the
Spiders at his mercy, allowing them but
three singles. Yc.ung pitched great ball
until the sixth Inning, when four singles
and a sacrifice netted three runs. Mayor
Todd pitched the first ball across the
plate and then made a short address to
the players of both teams.
It required ten innings to decide the
game at Cincinnati. After a hard fight
the Reds won by a score of 8 to 7. In the
eighth inning the score stood Cincinnati
4 and Chicago 6. In the nineth Irwin hit a
hard one to Pleffer. who made a throw to
Decker, allowing Irwin to go to third.
Ritchey then hit to first base, stole a base
and scored on Schriever's grounder to
Dahlen. tying the score. Ititchey's play
ing was the feature of the day. Thorn
ton started off with a three bagger in the
tenth. Pfeffer went out to Rhines.
Griffith flied out to Burke and Thornton
scored, leaving the score: Chicago 7. Cin
cinnati G. In the Red's half. Miller hit to
left. I'ietz went out to Decker. Vaughan
hit for three bases, bringing Millier home.
Irwin then hit to Dahlen and Vaughan
The smallest crowd of the day, f..0O0.
gathered at' St. Louis, where the Pitts
burg Pirates defeated the Browns 4 to 1.
The visitors played a stronger, better
game than the home team and earned
their victory. The game was called at
3:4") o'clock, Pittsburg taking the field.
The first inning was featureless, except
for the retirement on strikes of Smith.
Pittsburg's star batsman. In the second
inning both Pittsburg and St. Louis
scored. That was the last of it for the
Browns. Pittsburg scored easily in the
sixth and picked up two more runs in the
eighth on Brodie's double aver first base.
In all the cities there was the usual
street parade and concert at the grounds.
