THE RURAL CARRIERS.
Meeting In Newberry On July 4, To
Form a State Association.
Delegates from the county associa
tioh of rural free delivery carriers
will meet in Newberry on the fourth
day of July for the purpose of form
ing a state association. The meeting
will be held at the suggestion and in
vitation of the Newberry county as
sociation. Up to the present time
only three counties in the state
Newbery. Laurens, and Orangeburg
have perfected county organizations.
The delegates from each of these
points can reach Newberry in the
morning. returning the same night
if they desire.
The railroads will be asked to of
fer reduced rates. and will no doubt
comply with the request.
The meeting will probably be held
in the court house. The fourth of
July being a legal holiday. it will not
in'terfere in the slightest degree with
the daily work of the carriers. and- it
was principally tor this reason that
this day was fixed.
The Newberry county association
has been organized for some time.

Habeas Corpus Proceedings Today.
-Alexandria, Va.. June 2.-United
States Circuit Judge Pritchard, in
Alexandria, today issued a writ of
habeas corpus for Josephus Daniels,
editor of the Raleigh News and Ob
server. who was fined two thousand
dollars for contempt of court by
United States District Judge Purnell.
Judge Pritchard directed that Dan
iels will be br'ught before him at
Raleigh at 3 p. m. tomorrow.
Editor Daniels has taken a stand
on principle. stating that if the sen
tence of Judge Purnell is- allowed tt
stand. it will be a severe blow to the
freedom of the press of the entire
Editor Daniels' utterances in con
nection with the Atlantic and North
Carolina receivership case. arf on
which the charge for contempt was
based. are as follows:
"Judge Purnell . graciously stated
that a meeting of the stockholders to
agree upon a lease would not be con
sidered an act of contempt of his
court, provided the lease they might
agree upon were submitted to him.
The day will be asked 'by the state
officials as to how they shall perform
I the duty imposed upon them by
the legislature. There is not a decent
citizen of North Carolina who would
ever forgive the governor of this
commonwealth if he humiliated it by
submitting a lease to any federal
.court. Some things are higher than
leases and rentals and dollars. One
is whether the property of the people
shall be governed by servants of their
choice or by federal judges in whose
selection they have no voice. If their
servants commit mistakes or wrongs.
the people can correct them. If fed
eral court judges appointed'by hosle
Presidents upon alien recommenda
tions. commit wrongs there is no im
mediate remedy. The legislature has
full power to make a thorough inves
tigation into all agreements and un
derstandings which have been entered
into, and if the governor should call
a special session for that purpose the
whole inception of this affair might
be said bare to the public gaze. It
would have the power to examine
everybody and will probably do so.
The full disclosure of all the motives
and ulterior purposes behind, this ap
plication by Finch and Cuyyer would
be interesting and salutary.
"Of course the state appeared. The
appointment of a receiver was expect
ed and the state was ready last night
with the papers and the bond. The
matter will be heard before the cir
cuit court of June 28th. If the own
ers of three fourths of a piece of prop
erty have rights superior to that of
one $3.700 stockholder in a company
of $r,8oo,ooo the property will be re
stored to its owners.

but right will eventually be establish

will be found weeping when the real
