In an answer to a New York World telegram of inquiry, Sen ator Overman says that State’s rights and’ the tariff should be two of the planks in the next na tional Democratic platform. There are some pretty mean people on this globe. If it should become our duty to point out some of them we might have some diffi culty in making proper classifica tions, but among the meanest and most contemptable, we would be sure to place the peanut politici ans and optimists, or rather the professional hypocrits, right up in front. MILLERTOWN. July 27. Having some fine corn and cot ton growing weather along now, Hope the good seasons will con ' tinue. Most of the wheat of our com munity is now threshed. There is some few that have not thresh ed yet. W. A. Kirk is erecting himself a new straw shed. Guess he meanB to keep his straw dry. As we noticed in Brown Eye’s squibs, there was a lot of visiting done in her community. Ha! there must be something doing. We are told that the largest oak tree in Morgan township stands at the Old Whitson Miller place. It measures about seven fest at the ground and its branches extend over one hundred feet from its body. You don’t find many ol ‘‘dem bind er trees in dis coun. try.” Jos. W. Miller is attending con ference this week at St. Martin’s E. L. Church, Efird’s Mills, N. C. J. Cal, Fraley killed a big copperhead the other week that measured five feet six inches from tip to tip. L. W. Miller is building a lo| cart for the derrick haulers o Whitney. Boys, I tell you it’s i mud hole masher. We had the pleasure of seeinj the “Baby” outfit thresh the oth er day. She certainly does fim work. You need not be afraid o her for she does the work nicely. Didn’t know that I had beer working for any company, as Bro Southerner said something aboi 1 me bringing in my time. Guesi he didn’t mean that, did you Bro‘ Plenty of rabbits around her< now, for we heard an old lady saj that she saw 30 in one gang. It’s a new thing for rabbits to go ir gangs. Messrs. Birtie and Freda Millei visited their sister, Mrs. Geo. W. Miller, of Richfield this week. Mrs. W. A. Kirk says she plant ed seven Irish potatoes and raised two .bushels from them. That’s pretty good, isn’t it? Let’s heai from you Bro. and see if you can beat that. Mesdames. Jos, A. and Jos. W, Miller have bought a new washing machine. Guess they will have clean clothes now. Miss Freda Kirk and Brother Mack visited their brother, Eugene Kirk, of Whitney, this week. Beans, roasting ears, blackberry pie, cucumbers and tomatoes are all we eat along now. Uncle Josh. ■-• «k There was an eclipse of the moon last Wednesday, but it at tracted little attention here. THE STATE WINS IN RATE GASE. The Govenor and Railroad] Come to an Agreement to take Etfect August 8th. After a three hours’ conference in the Governor's office in Raleigh Saturday between the railroad officials and the Governor and his advisers the foilwing agree ment was entered into in regard to the 2$ cent rate law and the recent litigation growing out of : it: First, the railway puts the 2\ cent rate into effect not later than . August 8th, next. Second, the State to appeal from Judge Pritchard’s order dis charging parties in Asheville on writ of habeas corpus Third, the Southern Railway i to appeal to the State Supremo Court in the Wake county case and if the case is decided against , it to take it by writ of error to the i United States Supreme Court. Fourth that both sides co-operate to have said cases advanced and argued together and speedily de ; termined. riith, the btate at its option to indiot the Atlantic Coast Line in one case. Sixth, all indictments and prosecutions now pending to be dismissed an.l no others to be institued for any alleged viola tion of the law up to the time the new 2^ cent rate is pub in to effect as far as the Governor cai control the same. Seventh, the Governer advises all persons against bringing any penalty suit pending final deter mination of the question involved and asks the people as a whole to acquiesce in this arrangement. Eighth, the suit pending before Judge Pritchard at Asheville to be diligently prosecuted without the State’s having any questions of jurisdiction. The Charlotte Observer’s Ral eigh corespondent adds: The Gov nor stated that Messrs, Thom and Humphrey, also as counsel for the Southern Railway undertake that it will not inaugurate con tempt proceedings because of any thing heretofore done by any of the state’s officers in connection with this rate litigation, and the road will do what itcaD to prevent che inauguration of any such con tempt proceedings. This arrangement between the Southern Railway and Govern^ Glenn is also assented to by Geo. Roundtree, attorney for R. Nelson Buckley and other Atlantic Coast Line stockholders, complainatns and by Alexander Hamilton, gen eral counsel for the Atlantic Coast Line Campany, except that they do not consent that the At lantic Coast Line shall be indicted in one case but as to that leaving the State at liberty to do as its sense of duty may dictate, this agreement being signed by Ham ilton and Rountree.

GuMpy Bad Burn Quickly Healed. “I am so delighted with what Chamberlain’s Salve has done for me that I feel bound to write to you and tell you so,” says Mrs. Robert Mytton, 457 John St., Hamilton, Ontario. ‘‘My little daughter had a bad burn on her knee. I applied Chamberlain’s Salve and it healed beautifully.” This Salve allays the pain of a burn almost instantly. It is for sale by James Plummer, Salis bury, and Spencer Pharmacy, Spencer, N. C. GOV. GLENN ADDRESSES THE PUBLIC. He Reviews the Rate Trouble. He says the Law is Supreme and Must be Complied With. The Charlotte Observer’s Raleigh correspondent of Monday says: Governor Glenn today issued the following letter to the publio, in compliance with his statement made last Saturday afternoon and the argument between him self and the Southern and At lantic Coast Line Railways: “ihe General Assembly afc its last session passed a law regulat ing passenger rate, the same to go into effect July 1st, 1907, - Before that date the Southern and At lantic Coast Line Railway through the Circuit Court of the United States aujoined the corporation commission and the Attorney General from publishing and put ting the fixed rates into effect. Not believing that the Circuit Court judge in an equity suit by enjoining the corporation com mittee and the Attorney General could prevent a self-acting law from going into effect, I com menced to prepare a letter to the judges and an address to the peo ple, when on the 8th of July, 1907, the Hon, B. F. Long, one ol the ablest and most conscientious judges in the State, of his owe motion hastened action by boldlj and ably charging the grand jurj of Wake county that it was its duty to immediately indict the railroads for violating the rate law At once I assured Judge Long of my hearty approval ol his righteous stand and of my in' tention to assist him in uphold ing the law. My letter was for warded to the other judges and in dictmeuts were made in Wake and other counties. Many penal ty suits were also commencec againse the railroads by privat* individuals. The railroad thei applied to the Circuit Court t< enjoin all private persons fron bringing penalty suits, and to taki the persons arrested and couvicte< in the State court from the officer of that court by writ of habeai oorpus to the Federal court. “Believing this was not war ranted by the constition and laws I resisted it in every legal way directed the State’s attorney t< appeal from such action, and re quested the State court to con tiune to enforce the law. Thii brought about a direct conflict be tween the State and Federa court, a matter that I regret-tee but could not under my oatl avoid. At this crisis, Assistan Attorney General Sanford, repre sentiug the Department of Justici at Washington, came to see mi to try io adjust all differences. ’ told him that under the constitu tiou I could not and would noi attempt to annul the State law but if the railroads would obey the law and let it go immediately into effect, all minordetails could be adjusted. At his request j put my ultimatum in writing anc published it. Nothing was to be done unless the railroads immedi ately recognized the law, Aftei some debate and arrangement ol minor details the railroads ac cepted the State’s proposition the rate law to become effective August 8th (a few days beinp given to change tickets, etc.,) certain cases to be carried to the Supreme court for final determi nation, and in the meantime the railroads to request the circuit judge to commence no contempt proceedings, and I to ask the judges and solicitors to com mence no more indictments and nol pros those on their docket, ex cept tho two from which appeals were taken, and to request th( people not to commence any penalty suits. In compliance with my agreement, the law now b*ing fully recognized and obeye 1 by the railroad, I do most earnest ly request all judges to*"Sfop-all new indictments and to nol pros those on the docket and also beg the people to bring no more pen alty suits to the end that peace and harmony shall again prevail between the railroads and the peo ple. You cannot injure the rail* roads without injuring the State. When they obey the law they are entitled to protection, The law is now in full force and no one should therefore desire to violate the agreement made between the State and the railroad, and I confi dently ask and expect that said agreement be carried out and be strictly complied with. The law is supreme. Let all obey it.” In addition to the Southern & Atlantic Coast Line Railways, the Carolina & North Western rail way and the Louisville & Nash ville railway refused to obey the new rate law. Governor Glenn today sent the following telegrams to L. D. Nichols, superintendent of the Carolina & North Western at Chester, S. C : ‘‘The South ern and Atlantic Coast Line Rail way have agreed that the rate of 2 1-4 cents fixed by the Legislature go into effect August 8th. Will your read^also comply and adopt the fate on that day? Please an swer to the end that if you refuse to recognize the law I may take such action as to me seems right,” Governor Glenn this afternoon received the following telegram from L. D, Nichols, of the Caro lina and North Western Railway*? “Your wire just to hand. Do not feel authorized to reply and so have taken up matter with our president. Hope you will take no action until you hear from him,” Governor Glenn said this meant a back down and that this road is going to put the new rate into ef fect. He added: “They have all got to come to my way of think ing, I have received telegrams of congratulations from all parts of the country many from leading citizens, jurist and politicians. I do not feel inclined to give their names to the public.” The Southern Railway Com pany, in compliance with the agreement made by its chief at torneys and Governor Glenn, has filed in the Superior court here notice of appeal from judgment of . that court fining the road $30,000 for selling tickets above the new rate, a $00,000 supersedas bond and one to cover costs being filed. , Take the Postmaster’s Word for it.
