MOORE vs. BILLIARD.
It is commanded that wo touch
not, taste not, handle not the un
clean tiling," and perhaps we have
suffered in not obeying this injunc
tion and having anything 10 say in
the matter of the Judgeship for this
District. We are of course opposed
to both of the candidates and favor
one over the other not because we
love Ililliard more, but Moore less.
We believe Judge Moore possesses
ability,but his nature is too passion
ate and tyrannical, and his passions
too little controled, to make a just
and honest Judge. His complicity
too with an organization in Chowan,
gotten up as a counter concern to
the Ku Klux, shews a dangerous
disregard for law and partizan ha
tred too bitter to dwell in the breast
of one who is to decide between man
and man his just and inalienable
rights. Tho conduct of Judge
Moore also in the Halifax Grand
Jury case was such as would not
have been tolerated for one moment
in England nor any other country
in which there was a semblance of
constitutional liberty. The un
thinking may regard this act as but
the emanation of a too fervent zeal,
but it was in reality a high-handed
usurpation for which the Judge
should have been impeached, and
which should ever disqualify him
from holding any public office by
Which the right3 of the people would
be imperiled. These things, and
the evidences of un?nvpmsW" r""
sion that have been evinced in our
own county, as for instance in the
case of Mr. John Knight, show that
whatever ability Judge Moore may
have he is not the man to whom
could safely be intrusted the rights
of the people.
As far as Mr. Ililliard is concern
ed we know little. He has never
been a public man and has no re
cord, except that in the local poli
tics of his county he has, we think,
succeeded in making himself quite
odioug to his people. He is not re
cognized as a man of the ability of
Judge Moore, but that is a minor
concern if there are other natural
As we said above, the whole mat
ter is an "unclean thing" and no
Democrat should have anything to
do with it. It is a family fuss, let
them fight it.

The famine in India has attained
gigantic proportions, the British
government undertaking the oner
ous task of feeding three-and-a-half
millions of destitute people. Very
gloomy results are anticipated in
the face of this appalling calamity,
as in the stricken district there can
ts no crop for six month to coat.

SPECIAL TAX BONDS.
Our people will be gratified to
learn that the case of Self vs. Jen,
kins, State Treasurer, lias been
heard before Chief Justice Waite,
and that his decision has been made
in favor of the State. The argu
ment upon which the decision is J
based does not touch the matter of
the constitutionality of the bonds,
but relies entirely upon the fact
that the Treasurer was compelled
to disburse the interest collected
for the Special Tax bonds because
he was so required by the Legisla
ture. We give below the 'closing
portion of the decision :
The immediate question for our deter
mination, therefore, is, not whether the
State should proride the means and require
the Treasurer to replace this fund, but
whether it has so done. When the order to
use the $150,000 was made, ihe Treasurer
was authorized to replace it out of the first
money which cane into the Treasury by
way of dividends or taxes. When that of
the $200,000 was ordered, he was authorized
to replace it from dividends and taxes for
general purposes The Itevenue Act of
1871, however, expressly prohibited him
from using for that purpose any money col
lected under its authority. The acts ol 1873
aud 1874 do not contain any such prohibi
tion, but they each direct that the taxes
levied shall be applied to defray the expen
ses of the State government, and to pay ap
propriations for charitable and penal institu
tions. This is the statement of the special
object to which the taxes are to be applied,
required to be made in every law levying
taxes, and the Constitution expressly pro
hibits their application to any other. While,
therefore, the law does not prohibit the re
imbursement of the special tax fund out of
the money raised under its authoiity, the
Constitution does. The expenses on account
of which the money was taken from the fund,
have already been paid with the money of
the State. It is true, the money paid ought
not to have been so used, but it was none
the less on that account the money of the
Slate. The bondholder might perhaps, if
I no Tt l ivilan l: I 1 1 1 roma nail 1 ii ina I nn r i
compel its application to the paymeut of j
the interest on their bonds, but until so i
applied it did not become their property, and !
remained that of the State. " i
It is not claimed that there is now any ,
money in the Treasury except that whichl
has been collected from taues levied under
the uevenue Laws of 1873 and 1874, and it
ia clear to our minds thei e is no law existing
which requires, or even authorizes, the
Treasurer to reimburse the special fund
from that. Tbe Stale may be under obli
gation to provide for such reimbursement,
but the State and the Treasurer occupy
different positions. The State ia the debtor
and bound by its pledge of faith to provide
means and pay its debts. The Treasurer ia
but an agent of the State, and bouud ouly
t pay its debts when required to do so by a
valid law. If such a law exists and he re
fuses to act, a proper court will by mandamus
compel him to perform his duty. If he
threatens to divert money appropriated for
tbe payment of a debt, on proper applica
tion, he may be restrained. But to auhor
ize interferei.ee ia either case, it must clear
lyappear that he wrongfully reluses to
execute a valid law which has been enacted
by the legislative department for his guid
ance. The court cannot make laws for him.
It can only compel hiui to execute such as
have been made.
As there is therefore no money in the
Treasury which the Treasurer is authorized
or required by any existing law to appro
priate for the reimbursement of the special
tax fund, we cannot restrain him from pay
ing out the funds in his hands until the
reimbursement has been made. The princi
pal in this case cannot be reached through
the agent now before the (,'ourt.
The bill is dismissed with costs

There is danger that the people
of the 2nd Congressional District,
knowing the fact that they are
hopelessly overslaughed by the
colored vote, will lose energy and
cease to work where their work
would be appreciative and effective.
It is true that there 13 not the
slightest hope of their being able to
elect a Representative to Congress,
but their vote for Col. Tool will
count as much as that from any
other portion of the State and
should bo polled. The Executive
committees in the counties compos
ing this district have much more
arduous duties imposed upon them
than if they had full tickets in the
field. The whole work devolves
upon them, and they should see
that a complete organization were
kept up and that there were sub
committees in every township to
bring out the full vote. If these
committees are active and diligent
much more could be done through
them in this district than by a
contesting campaign with opposing

The Charlotte Observer says : Hav
ing said that he was tho most popu
lar man in the District, it only
remains for us to add his name to
ti e the list composed of Ashe, Scales
and Vance, aa the representatives of
the Conservative party from Western
North Carolina in the next Congress.
This is the strongest team wo have
put in the field since the war, and
the mere mention of their names, in
connection with the candidacy, is a
sy nonym of Conservative triumph .
A bill is now before the British
Parliament having for its object the
restraining of the ritualists, or as
they are called, High Church par
ty, which places Mr. Gladstone in
a most awkward position. The
ritualists are of course tories, and
Mr. Gladstone, the leader of the
liberal party,is said to be a ritualist,
and with his whole party at his
back is resisting a measure which,
it would seem, should command the
sympathy of the democracy of
Brittain. No wonder Mr. Glad
stone's name is mentioned in con
nection with the University of Oxford.
