Mr. Editor: Having seen i leport of the so-oalled mass-meet ing of the citizens of Spencer, N, C., and noting that my name was mentioned in Bnch was tc leave the impression that I advo cated the passage of the resolution mentioned therein, I desire to make a brief statement that his tory may be kept straight. Having heard that Mayor W. H. Barton wag going to have a meeting at tbe school house on the night of Deoember 10, 1915, for the purpose of whitewashing him sell as Mayor and Judge of the Recorder’s court of tbe town of Spenoer, N. 0., I attended as a spectator only, being drawn then by mere curios;ty. Oo arrival J found present about thirty (i forty men in one of the cla^ rooms of the Spencer school build ing. ine meeting was called to orJn by Mr. Burton aud was opene! with prayer by Mr. Burton. Next Mr. Barton read four or five let ters written by out of town partieh who stated in response to Mr. Bur ton’s request that they had heart no criticism of the Reoorder’t Court of Spenoer previous to tht oritioism and reoommeodation of the Grand Jury at November term of Rowan Superior Court. The next thing on the program was the resolution whioh was vig orously advcoated by Mr. Burton. After a painful silenoe of some minutes some one moved the adoption of the resolution, but no one seemed inclined to vote. Whereupon Mr. Barton stated that he had aecured legal advice and that no one would lay them selves liable in voting for his re solution, Being thus encouraged, about eight cr ten hesitatingly voted “aye.” All others seemed to be present as spectators only. There was no discussion of the re solution or the causes leading Mr. Burton to think such action i ec essary, save the speeoh of Mr Barton. ■A . ouuu uiouusBiuu hb Was engaged in by any of the citizens present, was provoked by the iniquity of J. R. Donsvant, who stated that, in Pis opinion, before definite so tion shouid be taken it should be ascertained just what information led the Grand Jury to make the criticism and recommendation complained of by Mr. Burton; Mr. Douevant here suggested that a committee cf three be appointed to obtain this neoessary informa tion, This action was discourag ed by Mr. Burton. Being called upon by some one present, I made a very brief talk in which I quoted from memory a letter written to Solicitor Hay den Clement, on November 15th, 1915, requesting him to have Dr. E. T. Carter, pastor of the First Baptist ohuroh of Spencer, N. C., testify before the Grand Jury. Immediately, Mr. Burton, be ing cornered, confessed that he was the author of the letter men tioned and made a few remarks seeking to justify himself. X. v • UIUAURUIB liuA U Ut* LUO the bat and made the home iub of the evening. Mr. McAdamB spoke concerning the oharge that the law was not impartially en forced in Spencer. He reminded Mayor Barton of being with him on Sunday afternoon about two weeks previous, near the Y. M. G. A., when they met a man who was very drunk and itaggermg over the sidewalk. He farther reminded Major Burton that they stopped and watched the drunken man and how the said drunken man came back and of how the mayor and he had to step to the edge of the sidewalk to allow the man to stagger by. He farther remined Mayor Burton of his de claration at that time that he would have “The Chief” arrest the said drunken man and try him for being drunk. Mr. Burton admitted that all of these state ments were true. Mr. McAdams also foroerd Mr. Barton to admit that he had not tried any person Lizzards Seventy Feet Long. Como Bluff, Wyoming, i i I olassio ground to those interested iD the fossil remains of animate that inhabited this region long ages ago, for it was here that the first dinosaur bones were dis« covered in the Rooky Mountain region. Some of the dinosaurs were the largest land animals that ever walked the earth, and some were very diminntive. They differed greatly in size, shape, structure, and habits, Seme w re plant eaters; others fed on flesh. Some walked on four feet; others with small weak fore limbs walked entirely upon the strongly developed hind legs. Some hao reptile-like feet; others were bird footed. Some bad toes prevideo with long, sharp olaws; others uad flatened, hoof-like nails. There were dinosaurs with small Heads, and otheis with large heads, iume were large and cumbersome; naers were small light and grace a! and so much resembled bird, o their structure that only thi skilled anatomist oan distinguish .heir remains. Some of enormous <tza were clad in coats of bony irinor, which gave them a most bizarre appearance. Ihe largest herbivorous o i plauteatiug dinosaur whose fossil remains have been found in Como Bluff was the huge brontosaurus, or thunder lizzard, as it was called by Prof. Mars l. It was 70 feet long, stood 16 feet high at the hip), and had a long tail, an equally long neck, and a bead that was only a little larger than that of a horse. The weight r f each a oreature has been variously esti mated at 18 to 20 tons. This ani mal doubtless lived on the luxu riant tropioal vegetation, but how its enormous bulk could be sus tained by sash food as could past through its ridiculously small mouth has caused much wonder It is not oertain whether the name thunder lizzard was given to it became of its size or because of the large sum, oyer 110,000, which Prof. Marsh spent iu ixoavatiug and preparing it. Some dinosaurs that are even larger than the brontosaur have been found more recently. A lplodoous now in the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburg, had the euorm:us length of 84£ feet. At the time these animals flour iibed the Rooky Mountain region was a low, nearly level country, covered with tropioal vegetation, with mauy wide, shallow streams and swampy areas, thus furnish ing a cougeuial place for these sluggish swamp inhabiting crea tures to wade lazily about or float in the water, for it has been deem ed improbable that could be sus tained without lateral support suoh as would be obtiined in wa ter.—0.

I do not wish to be understood as oritnosing in any way that part of the Administration of Spencer which is represented by the Board of Aldermen.
