ESTABLISH ED 1381. TH AD BY R. MANNING. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 1G, 1905 McCUE HANGED. J. Samuel McCue, the wife murder er, was hung at Charlottesville, Va., Friday morning, despite all efforts made to save him. It was a triumph of Virginia just ice when this man met his deserts at the end of a rope ad justed about his neck by th officers of the law. .Well connected, promi nent in the social and business life of his town, a successful lawyer, possess ed of means and influence, five times member of the city council and three times mayor of Charlottesville, he was nevertheless a murderer, guilty of the atrocious crime of brutally and rruelly shooting and killing his own wife, helpless and defenceless as she was she whom he had vowed at tfie marriage altar to love, honor and protect the mother of his own chil dren whom by his fiendish act he more than orphaned this man richly de served his fate and it was a triumph of Virginia justise, we repeat, that he was convicted and hung. Refore going to the scaffold McCue made a confession to his spiritual advisers, requesting that they make it public in the form of a signed st ate ment after he was hung. Th confes sion was brief, merely admitting his guilt and the justice of the sentence, without any details whatsoever as to the commission of the crime and the cause. This was signed by Rev. Geo. L. Fetrie, pastor of the Presbyterian church, Rev. Harry B. Lee, rector of the Episcopal church, and Rev. John B. Turpin, pastor of the First Bap tist church, and reads as follows: "J. Samuel McCue this morning stated in our presence and re quested us to male public that lie did not wish to leave this world with suspicion resting on any hu man being other than himself. That he alone wasrenponeiblefor the deed, impelled to it by an evil power beyond his control, and that he recognized his sentence as jUht." To 1'itoniMT something seems to be about the height of some men's ideas of legislation up at Raleigh. We are expecting to see some fellow in the Legislature introduce a bill to . I.

As will be seen by figures publish ed elsewhere the business of the Hen derson dispensary for the first year amounted to $5;j,2GG.37, and the profits thereform $17,303.15. If the same degree of thirsty loyalty to onr great moral institution is shown this year it will make even a better show ing on the profit side of the ledger. Last year everything had to be bought from the start and this item of expense will be eliminated, it being only necessary to keep up stock and pay running expenses. To Cure a Cold In One Day.

One of the most serious questions that has confronted the farmers and farm land-owners of North Carolina of late years, especially in the eastern and cen tral conn tiei.is that of securing addition al farm laborers and an influx'of new comers of agricultural persuasion that will take up the idle lands going to waste and cultivate them, either as "small farm ers" or as tenants on r bares. These, too, ln"a " waj7 take ' the pIaces"of the black men who have been leaving the rural dis tricts in such increasing numbers for the towns and cities in and out of the State. In the opinion of many of our best and most thoughtful and patriotic public men, the best means of supplying this want is through the establishment of an immigration bureau, and at this writing it appears , that this , method is to be adopted. At a joint meeting of the Senate and House committees on immigration a bill to tlJis end was unanimously reported favorably, after the committee had been addressed by a number of gentlemen, in cluding the immigration commissioner of South Carolina, Mr. E. J. AVatson, and the industrial agents of the several large railway systems, whose co-operation is highly desirable. The bill reported is the committee's substitute for that of Senator Moore, and provides for a commissioner of immigra tion (at a salary of 2,500,) and an ap propriation of $7,500 annually for ex penses. Gov. Glenn's Earnest Re commendation. ' In hia special message to the General Assembly during the past week, Govern or Olenn used the folio wintr earnest words on this subject of establishing an immi gration bureau: "A bureau not for the purposd as some seem to fear, bringing the 'riff-raff of so ciety and pauper laborinto theStats.but one capable of guarding against much objectionable persons, and seeking only laborers of industry and character, fi nanciers looking for places of investment and farmers wanting good homes. Our people cannot be their own immigrant ttgenis, out must nave some agency through which they can act in order to make known the kinds of lands, miner als, water powers and other resourses they have to sell, and thus through this channel be brought in touch with persons ueHinng to uuy. The same is also true of individuals or corporations desiring laborers, there must be some common source through which employers and employes can be brought together. What North Carolina needs is more people with monev, brains, industry and willing hands, to'the ends that markets raav be estnhlishpd. our waste places built up, our farms properly cultivated, and mines opened and worked and our untold and hidden resources Drought to the attention of the world. In North Carolina our people live chiefly by agriculture; about SO per cent, of our total population are owners or tillers of the soil; they. pay a large prorortion of the taxes for the support of "the State government and yet what acts are passed looking to the great need of thce jeople and what appropriations are made di rectly for their benefit? 1 1 is a fact star ing our people in the face, that owners anu tuiers of the soil are now in much distress because of the lack of labor at reasonable prices or in fact at any price and the stern reality faces our agricul tural interests that want of hands op. the farm, is bringing our lands to prices far below their proper or proportional value." of South Dakota, and it must be satisfied ? two montns nence. 'mere is noquesiiou about that. The opinion of conservative business men is that tbe best thing the State can do with regard to tbe other bonds of like character is to compromise with the holders on the best terms that can be secured. ; j Other Matters h The newspaper men's bill, designed to repeal tbe old populistic law and open the way for tbe weekly and other news papers to contract with transportation companies by the payment for mileage in advertising, is going through all right, ft has already passed one branch of the legislature and will probably become a law this week. The divorce bills will come up to-mor- ! row (Tuesday) night in the House, asl the special order. The discussion of thii i important piece of legislationwas to have opened in the House Saturday after noon, but the matter was postponed till Tuesday nieht in order that all the rand- ! fi so that all members of the legislature may familiarize themselves with the pro visions and merits of each. There does not appear to be much doubt, of a radical change in the present lax divorce laws of the State. The House has just passed a bill (in troduced by Mr. Stronach of Wake) to prohibit falsifying ia advertisements. Mr. Stronach is a merchant in Raleigh and personally interested in this bill. Death invaded the general assembly Friday last and reaped the life of Dr. TV. C. Phipps. representative of Watauga county. Deceased was the victim of pneumonia and the body was taken home for interment. Senator Mason of Northampton and Senator Ellington of Wake, who have also suffered from attacks of pneumonia are now recovered.
