Judge W. H. Wallace. in his charge to
the Grand Jur on Monday. said many
good and wholesome things. Miscar 2age
of justice, of which we hear so mue i.
says, is not to be attributed to the num
ber of challenges allowed the defendant,
nor the modes of trial, nor yet to the ju
ries, but the great trouble lies at another
door. and that, as the learned jurist well
said, is in the tendency to false swearing
perjury. Too many puersons consider too
little the sanctity and obligation of an
oath when they take it. By this evil the
stream of justice is corrupted at its very
fountain. and to it may be attributed a
majority o)f the miscarriages of our crimi
nal trials. The juries are to make up
ther verdicts from the testimony on the
stand. False swearing is a fearful thing.
Yet it is true that too many do not con
sider. or if they consider at all. they~ do
not comp'rehenid fully the sanctity of an
What about that State primary? Are
we to have it or not? Ubse'rr-r.
We have no ob jection. In fact, we are
rather of the opinion that it would be a
very goos d idea to let the pecople have some
sort of say in the selection of State of
lieers and solicitors as well as in the se
lection of coun+y1 orlicials. We have never
been fully conviinced that the primary
lanii was thle best way to selec~t otlieers,
but the people seemi to want it that way
for county oflicers, and it has worked
very well with us, so if the people want
it that .way for State otlieers. why let them
have it. And if it is a good thing for the
'ounlty we see no reason why it should
not be a good thing for the selection of
State 'fieers,. or ( ongressmien, or Circuit
Solicitors. Yes. let us have a State ( an

Col. Charles E. R. Drayton, the editor
and proprietor of our esteemed contem
porary, the Aiken feorder, died at his
home in Aiken, on Tuesday, of pnenmo
nia. Col. Drayton was a good editor and
will be greatly missed from the fraternity.
It was not our privilege to know him per
sonally. yet we always read his paper with
A Stinging Communication.
Editor Murat Halstead has some
very spicy correspondents contribut
ing to his able Commercial Gazette
One of these is Colonel Fred D.
Mussey, who, in spite of his politics.
tries to lie fair. He doesn't always
succeed, but the struggie that he has
with himself gives a flavor to his let
ters that is not to be found else
where. But the best of Editor Hal
stead's correspondents is Judge Wi.
M. Dickson, of Cincinnati, who is al
together a voluntary correspondent.
The judge writes as follows:
-Your diction is copious; your im
agery etflorescent. grotesque; your
eloquence sublime; your affection for
the negro touching, but you evade
the question. I must bring you to it.
Shall we continue a sectional agita
tion until we compel the southern
states to submit to the rule of the ig
rorant field hands ? Would Cincin
nati vote in the affirmative on this
question? This you dodge. You say
that Cincinnati -would vote by an
overwhelming majority for the main
tenance of the rights of men.' No
doubt of that; but that is not my
question. The constitution and the
law of Ohio guarantee to the colored
children of Oxford, O., admission to
the public schools, but the white citi
zens of that village nullify that con
stitution, and deny the colored chil
dren their school rights, and this not
in Mississippi, but in the shadow of
Paddy's Run, the town honered by
your birth. Seventy-five of the lead
ing citizens have banded together to
boyco'.t these poor negro children
not, mark you, to protect themselves
against the vote, the rule of these
negroes-but to deny to them the
opportunity of education. And you
are silent! The wrongs of the negro
of Louisiana touch you but not these
at your own door. And yet the peo
ple of Oxford would vote to enforce
negro rule in Louisiana. Now, in my
opinion, it is cruel-it is inhuman
to deny to the colored children the
school. It is also illegal, unconsti
tutional, in every way regretable, to
deny to the southern negro his vote,
and it is monstrous injustice to give
to the whites there the advantage in
representation of this negro vote.
But of what value in either place to
the n gro are my unavailing regrets?
If race prejudice is cruel and inhu
man, how can I help it? If civiliza
tion would perish to allow the igno
rant field hands south t-> rule? And
if I dared to enforce it, how could I
succeed? Were you in power to
day what would or could you do ?
Reduce, you say, representation un
der the fourteenth amendment? You
can't. That part of the fourteenth
amendment is dead-killed by the
fifteenth amendment. What, then, do
you propose? A vain and aimless agi
tation? That is child's play.
Will you send an army south to
compel submission to the rule of the
ignorant field hand? Grant tried this;
sent soldiers into the Legislature of
Louisiana, unseated certain members
and seated others. You fiercely de
nounced this and bolted Grant's
nomination. So did Whitelaw Ried,
and frantically eried for Brutus to
relieve us of a tyrant, an act that
Grant never forgot nor forgave. Can
you do now what Grant failed to do
then? Would Cincinnati -aid you in
sending an arme.l force south? WVould
it be good for the negro to awaken at
this time a fierce race struggle?
These are plain questions; will you
answer them? Flighty anathema, sky
rocket declamation, droll buffoonerv
may amuse the groundlings-they do
not deceive the judhicious. 31r. Edi
tor, the race question is a dijflicult
one it becomes fearfully dillicult in a
community where the intelligent
white man is outnumbered tire to one
by the ignorant field hand.
Then arise a conflict, of righits. In
1819 John Quincy Ad: s recorded
in his diary, speaking of~ the race
problem as it then p)resenitedl itself
with slaverv,. these words: This is a
question between the righits of human
nature and the constitution. The
problem of to-day is a question be
tween the rights of' civilizat:on and
the constitution. Until we can see
our way clear to a proper solution of
this problem. is it not the part of
wisdom to leave it to the peole dli
rectly involved in it? At all events it
is clear that it would better things

MRS. COXi GETS HFR DIVORCE.
The End of a Fatuous Suit-$400 a
3Month Alimony Allowed.
Vei rk World, Felbuwi' 4.
'Tlie siit for absolute divorce brought
by 31rs. Alice C. Coxe against her hus
band, Franklin ('oxe, Jr., which was
ommenced nearly : year ago before
Judge Pratt. of Brooklyn, was decided
yesterday by the referee. The latter in
his report grants the divorce, and allows
the plaintiff $400 per month perinanent
alimony. HIe ailo directs that as Mr.
Coxe's property i- out of the State, lie
shall give seeturity for the paymnit of
The defendant notle no opptosition anti
only ohi."cted to that portion of the ref
eree's report wh;ic lixes the amount of
alimony. .Ju Ige Cullen, before whom
the motion to confirm the report was
made, reserved his decision.
Franklin Coxe, Jr.. the defendant in
the suit, is connected with the well
known Coxe family of North Carolina
and Penusylvania. IIe is reputed to be
a millionaire. His father was Trench C.
Coxe. who was one of the coal barons
of Penns: :a'ia, and lwho at his death
left his th- e Sons an immense fortune.
Franklin ('oxe, Jr., seems to have been
the black sheep of the flock. Immedi
ately upon coming into poss-ession of
his fortune he manifested a dispo-ition
for fast living. In Charlotte. N. C., in
1877, he met and married Miss Alice C.
Williams, a wealthy young woman and
the bell - of the place. He brought his
family to this city in 1882 and lived in
good sty le. In April, 1833, while Mrs.
Coxe was visiting her mother at Char
lotte, Coxe and Emily B tyard, of Texas,
a variety actress, occupied apartments
together in the Crystal Flats. When
Mrs. Coxe returned her husband openly
avowed his preference for Emily Bayard,
telling his wife to return to her home
and agreeing to pay her $200 per month
for her support. The deserted wife re
turned to her family in North Carolina.
L'oxe kept this part of his agreement,
and shortly afterwards bought a hand
some house at Great Neck, L. [., where
he lived in elegant style with Miss Bay
ard. About two years ago, Coxe
left. Mi-s Bayard for a Miss Edith
Schotield, and about a year ago he made
overtures to his wife, begging forgive
ness, and desired her to come back to
im. She returned to the city in answer
to his appeals, but when she learned of
his conduct she at once sued for a di
