New York, Dec. 30. Governor Rob

letter replying to a communication
from Edward L. Andrews, who repre
sents holders of $ll.0l'0,0)0 special tax-
bonds of North Carolina, which ma
tured three years ago and were never
paid, declared the legislature has twice
repudiated the bonds, and that the
state would not pay one cent for them
Glenn declared North Carolina had
acted fairly with its creditors, but it
would not payfor bonds "conceived in
sin and brought forth in iniquity."
Andrews urged that settlement be ef
fected, stating arrangements were be
ing made to donate $3,000,000 of the
bonds to a foreign government for the
purpose of suit, since unaer the law
individuals cannot sue a state. The
question" of payment of the bonds has
been the subject of interminable litiga
