Oldham, Publishev of Tiu: W kstkrn Sentinel, do here by soleuiniy swear, that the bona fide circulation of the above named paper for the quarter ending December 31, 1885, vas equivolent to an average edition of 2902 copies per week. Edward A. Oldham. Sworn to and subscribed to before seal. me this 6th day of January, 1886. C. S. IIausee, C. S. C. NO APOLIGIES, btjt cold facts. The following from the Ashville Citizen will apply to The Sentinel this week and be a suggestion as to the cause of our slight delay in the issuance of this number : Our office frozen up ; our type a solid mass; setting and distributing nearly inpracticabie ; frozen lingers of tfc i typo ; running to the stove to warm them out every five minutes ; ink stiff as tar ; rollers like cast iron cylinders ; work nearly impossible ; and our read ers, if they appreciate the situation, will be glad to take the half sheet we are only too glad to be able to get out this morning. In the National House of Repre sentatives there are 42 Johns, 27 Jam es, 40 Williams, 21 Charleses, 17 Thomases, and 10 Georges. The Sen ate statistics are not at hand, but there are a Thomas and a Jeremiah in the basement, we believe. The dead body of Col. John A sloan was found in a Creek near the city of Baltimore on the 6th inst. It will be remembered that Col. Sloan wandered from his home a month or so ago. He was formerly a citizen of Greensboro, N. C, and had been en gaged in writing a history of North Carolina's connection with the war. The Richmond Whig, which sus pended publication on Dec. 22, was sold last Friday for $5,000, the pur chasers being Abner Anderson, for merly of the Danville Register, and Judge A. W. C. Nowlin, of Washing ton, I). C. The paper will be Demo cratic in principle. The sale has been confirmed by the court. Toe friends of Gen. Fitzhugh Lee at Barryville, Virginia, raised a large sum of money by popular subscription, with which to buy a carriage and har ness to present to the Governor elect. Upon getting an inkling of their in tention he wrote to a prominent Rich mond gentleman, who is a close per sonal friend and stated that "under no circumstances would he accept such a present." Gen. Lee is right, a pub lic official ought not accept gifts from any one; then, he avoids the appear ance of evil. THE FIFTH DISTRICT Ef CONGBESS Our Representative in Congress for the Fifth District, Mr. Reid, is work ing vigorously in Washington. Few members, of many more years of ex perience than he, have accomplished as much, and manifested more push and energy in laboring intelligently, for the best interest of his own imme diate constituency and for the public good of the Nation. His efforts have nearly all been remarkably successful and he has developed a good deal of that kind of influence which has made Senator Ransom so popular, and so powerful, in the accomplishment of important matter for his Stat and people. - ' It was at ' Mr. Reid's instance that Senator Ransom introduced the bill in the Senate appropriating $50, 000 for the purchase of a site, and the erection of a postoffice building in "Winston-Salem. Mr. Reid has since introduced the same bill in the House. This bill we here append, as we sup pose it will be of interest of all of our city readers. A Bill providing for the erection of a Public Bifilding in Winston-Salem North Carrlina. - Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Repretentatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled: Sec 1,- That the Secretary of the Treasury be, and he is hereby, author ized and directed to purchase a site for, and cause to be ippcted thereon, a suitable building, -witi re-proof vaults therein for the accomodation of the Post-office, Internal Revenue office, and other Government offices, at Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The plans specifications, and full estimates for said bnildings shall be previously made and approved according to law, and shall not exceed for the site and build ing complete the sum f fifty thousand dollars ; provided, that the site shall eave the building unexposed to dan ger by fire in adjacent buildings by an open space of not less than forty feet, including streets and alleys ; and no money appropriated for this purpose shall be available until a valid title to the site lor said building shall be vest ed m the United btates, nor until the State of North Carolina shall have ceded to the United States exclusive jurisdiction over the same, during the time the United btates shall be or re main the owner thereof, for all pur poses except the administration of the criminal laws of said State, and the service of civil processs therein. Besides a number of bills of a pri vate nature, Mr. Reid has introduced a set of Revenue Bills which are ar ranged to repeal all revenue laws, if that could not be done, to repeal the tax on tobacco and spirits distilled from fnuts ; if that could not be ef fected, to repeal the tax on spirits dis tilled from apples, peaches or other fruits ; if that was not practicable, to abolish the statute allowing officers to destroy fruit stills, &c, and requiring such officers to place the apparatus in sate storage ; and lastly, to allow whisky distileries of ten gallons or less production per day to be operated a3 brandy distilleries are. Mr. Cicero Harris in his Wash ington correspondence to the Charlotte Cbserver, says that a very important measure introduced by Mr. Reid, is one to aid in the temporary support of schools. The Blair bill does not provide for school houses. Mr. Reid's does. Presedent Cleveland has said recently that newspaper lying was never "so general and mean as at pres ent. A majority of .the newspapers in the country, said all manner of nice things about Grover, up to a few months ago, but according to Grover's own assertion they couldn't have meant it. IIIE ANTI-l'OIiTGOMY BILL,. The United States Senate has passed the Anti-Polygomy Bill by an almost unanimous vote ;only seven opposing it, SenatorVance, fceing of this num ber, Senator Ransom not voting. J. he mam leatures or the Dill as passed by the Senate are as follows : Jt mates the lawiui husband or wife of the person accused of bigamy a competent witness, who may be com pelled to testify without the consent of the wife or husband, as the case may be. An attachment may be is sued tor a witness without previous subpoena when there is reasonable ground to believe that a subpoena would not be effective. Every mar riage shall be certified to in writing by the parties concerned, including the priest. Women are prohibited from voting in the Territory. AH laws recognizing illigitimate children, and the Territorial laws providing that prosecution, for adultery can be begun only on the complaint of the husband or wife, are annulled. The Territorial laws creating and continu ing the Mormon Church Corporation, are also annulled, and the President is to appoint ( by and with the advice of the Senate ) fourteen trustees to uianage the property and business of the corporation ; and the .Attorney- General is ordered to institute pro ceedings to forfeit and escheat all property to be thold, and the pro ceeds devoted to common , school pur poses in the Territory ; .but no build- ing is to be forfeited that is used ex clusively for worship. All immigra tion companies or organizations creat ed by the Territorial Government are abolished, and the Attorney-General is to take steps to have the Emigrat ing Fund Company wound np. The existing, election districts of Utah are abolished, and new ones that will give the people equal representation are to be marked out. Marriages between persons within and not including, the fourth degree of consanguinity are de clared incestuous. Adultery is pun ishable by imprisionment in the peni tentiary not exceeding three years. The office of District School Superin tendent is declared vacant and the Court is directed to fill the vacancy. The price of mica has undergone a sudden bound so we are told by the mining trade journals. This reminds U9 that right near us in Stokes county there are extensive deposits of this valurable mineral, and we hope to see somebody's idle capital utalized in the developing of this profitable in. dustry. AN IMPORTANT DECISION. During the last session of the Leg is lature a law was passed stipulating that the public schools of the State shall be open four months in the year. In Sampson county the Commissioners found that they wonld be unable to run the schools the time required by the law, owing to an in sufficiency of funds, so they proceeded to levy additional taxes, enough to carry them to the end of the four months. The payment of this addi tional tax was resisted by the tax payers, and the case c&rriad into court. An appeal was taken from the Super ior court's decision and the case was carried to Raleigh. In a decision just published it is seen that the Supreme Court decided that the County Commissioners haven't the right to levy taxes for the support of the public schools to a greater amount than the constitution provides. Chief Justice Smith in rendering his opinion, expresses himself s follows : In executing this legislative man dale to raise by assessment the addi tional sum required to maintain the public schools for the prescribed pe riod under the constitutional provi sion which has been recited, the ag gregate amount of the taxes levied is eighty-eight and one-third cents on the one hundred dollars worth of prop erty and two dollars and sixty-five cents on the poll. Inasmuch as these provisions of the constitutions are in conflict in their application to the facts in the persent case, the one com manding under a penalty to be done that which the others withholds the means of doing, the question is pre sented, if they cannot upon any reas onable construction be reconciled, which shall prevail, and which must yield. The court below ruled that the tax levied under the act of 1885, overr tepping the limits of taking pow er conferred, although necessary to a compliance, with the directions as to the schools, is not warranted by the constitution and cannot legally be en forced. The correctness of this ruling is before us on the appeal. While reluctant to declare a legis lative act unconstitutional, and the courts will only adjudge in a plain case, admitting of little or no doubt, yet a most imperative obligation rests upon them to uphold the fundamental law where they are In irreconcilable conflict and to declare the former in operative and void. It is an incon trovertible proposition that when in the same instrument a restricted au thority is conferred and an act be so done under it to which that authority is inadequate, it is only necessary to do what can be done within the pre scribed limits. The duty then of keep- up the public schools, developed upon the commissioners, is performed when all resources upen t them are em ployed and exhausted in the effort to mantain them for the designated pe riod. Within the limits of the power to tax given the commissioners the schools must be kept up and the man date is arrested when those limits are reached. Action beyond is not only required but is void if attempted. There is something bo humorously appropriate in the appointment of Mr. Skinner as a member of the House Committee op Mines and Mining, What does our fisherman representa tive know about mines or minerals ? Could he tell the difference between a handful of pyrites and a can of fish bait? OLD DEEDS. As there seemed to be some differ ence of opinion as to the effect of the law requiring the registration of deeds prior to January 1st 1885, we cite the following from an exchange : "There is much uneasiness in the minds of many persons in regard to the fact of old unregistered deeds The last Legislature changed the reg istration laws, and in effect required all deeds to be registered by January 1st, 1886. If a deed is not registered which ante-dates January 1st, 188b, what becomes of it Jj 1 he act is plain There " can be bnt one construction notwithstanding the vast amount of excitement. Alter January 1st, l8b, the first registered deed holds the land in case mere is no tenant 111 poseasiu 11 holding under and through an unreg istered deed. Any deed can be regis tered now at any time after January 1st, subject only to prior rights 01 ln ocent purchasers without notice. The act makes .possession notice, and there fore no man can claim to be an innocent purchaser in case the party holding an unregistered deed is himself or by tenent in the actual, possession of the land. The old law was that- a deed when registered look effect from its delivery. The law is that it takes ef fect from its registration. Prior to this, if A made a deed to B, and B puts it in his safe for ten years, and then A made a deed to C for value, still C, an innocent man, would not get the land. Now if A makes a deed to B, B to hold the land as against an innocent purchaser, must do one of two things : "First, register the deeds, or, second, take possession of the premises. Either is notice under the law to the whole world, and if either is 8one there is no innocent pur chaser. We therefore conclude that no person need be uneasy in regard to present or old titles if they are them selves or have others in possession, or if their titles are registered. This is the law stated in plain terms. That is a good law no one who will for a moment consider the question can deny. Titles must be settled. Land owners must be in actual possession or register their deeds. They can do either or both." The average age of the North Caro lina delegation in Congress, is 42 years, We doubt if any State sends a younger delegation and one who carry more intelligence and energy to their years. North Carolina is liberally pro vided for in the new committee ap pointments in the House of Repre sentatives Gen. Cox is Chairman of the Select Committee of Reform in the Civil Service. Mr. Bennett is Chairman of the Committee on the Ex pendures in the State Department ; Col. Green is Chairman of the Com mittee on Ventilation. North Caro lina's representatives on the following committees are : Elections, Mr. Hen derson ; Judiciary, Mr. Bennett ; Ag riculture, Colonel Green is second member ; Foreign Affairs, General Cox; Indian Affairs, Mr. Skinner; Railways and Canals, Mr. Henderson; Mines and Mining, Mr. Skinner; Patents, Col. Cowles; Public Build ings and Grounds, Mr. Johnson ; In valid Pensions, Congressman O'Hara ; Pensions, Colonel Cowles ; Expendi tures on Public Buildings, O'Hara. "KXCIAJSIVE PRIVIIiEGES." Before giving to private individ uals or incorporated bodies exclu sive privileges, it would be well for Boards of Commissioners or Alder men to consider very carefully what they are about. The Charlotte Dem ocrat, in referring to the recent re fusal of the city authorities of Wil mington to grant exclusive privi- eges to a company for the erection of electric lights, says, that "no city or state has the right to grant ex clusive privileges and the Wilming ton people are right in refusing to do so." A similar sentiment is expressed by the New York Sun, which gives the following paragraph the most conspicuous place on its editorial page : "The folly and improvidence ot giving to private individuals for nothing the most valuable franchises of a community, is seen in the fact that a five-cent fare on the elevated railroads would pay ten per cent, per annum on the $20,000,000 actual cash it cost to build them. Of course individual enterprise and risk should reap rich rewards when they de serve it, but it would be quite possi ble to secure these rewards for them and protect the public interests at the same time." Granting exclusive privileges loists monopoly in a community that may, in time, get to be an onerous burden. It Take but a Littlt Courage to Get Rich.
