And then the Times editor deliver himself of some reasons why the oanie of Henderson ville should not lie changed, while iii-istiiiy that "l e town of Henderson could han-ie its name without any great inconven ience." He says: Henderson ville has the i ioht of way. for if was the county seat of thi- cotinty U-fore Vance county was in existence. In point of fact Henderson ville is far more widely known than the other place; for tin- reputation of tin l itter is mainly local while the n pu t at ion of t he former is r.ipidlx beeoin iiii: national! As if that were not enough the "inies takes a f ill out of the "Vai.ce utility hanilet"' hy oiviii' promi nence to the fol!owiii! -opinion of us in its editorial olntini: In Vain-e county, in 1 1 1 . hlack bolt f North Cap-lina, there is a town In i he name of Henderson. It is not a place of any special prominence; in f ii t , its chii f claim to fame is that it reives a oiinil deal of mail, express and freieht which is intended for llen derson vvlle. In the case of mail, there is as a rule not much trouble beyond the delay of a day or two. for the post office forwards letters without extra cost. lint when freight or ex press matter intended for Henderson ille o.ies to Henderson, it usually taysforan indefinite period in the Vance county hanilet and a consider- ible expenditure of binie. trouble and money issoiin times rctpiired tobrit o it to its proper destination. I nd r t hese i-ircninsta nces,it would eein that the name of the county seat of Vance should be chanoed. This is dreadful "not a place of any special prominence; in fact, its chief claim to fame is that it receives a o-(HU deal of mail, express and freight which is intended for Ilender--onville." What a rude awakening, when we had supposed all the tiioe i hat Henderson not only had a local habitation but a name of its own, ever dreaminr t h;it it lived only in the reflected rays of a more prom- neiit town of similar name nestled imomr the mountains two hundred uid fifty miles away. That is what the Times editor says and because of these ''entanolino- alliances" of mail, 'reieht and express matter, brought ibout by a confusion of nanes he would have us discard Henderson tnd adopt another name i-Vance-t ille." he surytsts. Vanceville is all iirht nothino; the matter with that a jrood name for a new town but ve cannot take it. We like to bo accoinmodatinir but really there is no good and satisfactory reason why we should exercise such qualities in this instance. On the contrary, there is every reason why the name of Hen derson ville should Itechaneed if any lianirinir is to be done. We are an older town, considerably larger and Itetter known, the assertion of the Times to the contrary notwithstand ing. liefore HendersonviHe was ever mentioned in any leral sense, or even its place determined. Henderson was a prosperous town the railroad sta tion of what is now the Heuderson ville section and a tine shipping point, in the one item of tobacco alone shipping more than 2,000 hogsheads a year. The Times contemptuously speaks of us as a "hamlet" in Vance county, adding that Hendersonville wrs the county scat of Henderson county be for Vance county was in existence. Our contemporary loses sight of the fact (or it does not know) that Hen derson had an existence more than 40 years before Vance county was es tablished. This county was created in 1SS1, the Legislature of lbSO-'Sl passing an act authorizing the citi zens to vote on the question of form i.ig the new county. It wastlie prom inence and growing: importance of the town of Henderson the centreof trade and accessibility to the pre scribed territory of the proposed new county that demanded it should be made a county seat. The town of Henderson was incor porated by the Legislature of 1840 '41. The town was already in exist ence dating as far back jis 1837, of which we have record and its cor porate limits were declared to he one hal a mile in every direction from the public warehouse. (Laws of 1n40-'41, page 200.) In lH.'iTwhen the Raleigh & Gaston Railroad (the parent of the great Seaboard Air Line system) was built the board of dire-tors reported tothe stockholders that they had reached a point one mile and a half West of Chalk Level, where a station had been established at Henderson (named in honor of Chief Justice Leonard Henderson, who lived at Williamsboro. in Granville county, (now Vance), and conducted a law school ) The Catalogue of Randolph-Macon College, shows John J. Retivis a member ol the Junior Class of that institution from Henderson in 1839. The President of the Raligh & Gas ton Railroad Compnnv. in his report to the stockholders on Jan. 22, 1838, -peaks of he Henderson dpot; and 'he Chief Enjiineer at the same nieet tio -ays: "Tlie- second division of 'he road commences as I have lefore stat.-d. near Chalk Level at one 'lileatii! from its coin met icemen t, Henderson depot is placed. This is 'i far the most important internie :iafe depot on the line." Stage lines from this point arealso nentioned, Henderson Ieing the railroad station of all that section if country lyinr West of here. The W-oislatnre of 1840'41 (the s ine session at which the town of Henderson was incorporated) orde-r-1 an election to be held in Hender son county on the last Thursday in January, 1841, to determine where the Court House should lie located, tnd appointed Commissioners to ob tain by donation or purchase not less than fifty acres of land "upon which land a Town to be called Hen dersonville. sh uld be laid off by said Commissioners, or a majority of them, in which the Court House and Jail shall be erected." &C. It also provided for laying off the land into lots and sellino- them upon a credit of one and two years (Laws of 1840-'41. page 177.) Thus it will be seen that Hender son not only had an existence, but was an important railroad station before Hendersonville was ever dreamed of. It is Hendersonville only that is troubled much about the confusion of mails and other matters. Henderson is so well known that except in case of an occasional accident, its mail comes all right. As to'whether Headers, nviile or Henderson has the better right of ex istence we will let facts and figures speak instead of basing claim upon priority of name or age. While not boasting of itself as a summer resort Henderson has a nameandfaui" that is more than local based on what the town is in itself what it does and amounts to in the world of business mther than what others make it. Henderson is a live, progressive, prosperous town of upwards of 8,000 inhabitants. Its people live here and do business here, riving it a charac ter and stability beyond a mere health or pleasure resort. It has every convenience and public utility of a modern, up-to-date city splen did waterworks system.electric lights, sewerage, telephone system, paved streets, granolithic sidewalks, im mense factories, modern stores, hand some residences, fine churches, model schools. Perhaps no lietter index to the bus iness and commercial importance of a town can be found than in its banks. Henderson has two banks, one a National bank. One hasa cap ital stock of $100,000, the other $30,000. As shown by the last re port made to the North Carolina Corporation Commission, loans and discounts of one amounted to $441, 830.23. total resources $334,723.14. Of the other, loans and discounts $09,740.73. total resources $208, 734.34. Loans and discounts for the two banks combined amounted to $341,377.00; total resources $743, 477.08. Hendersonville has two banks, one with a capital of $27,000, the other $16.0O0. As shown by the last re port made loans and discounts of one of these was $G4.G3G.26, total resources $87,322.23. We have no statement of the other bank made at the same time (close o business Jan. 29, 1906.) before us, but according to its last previous report made in November, 1903, it showed loans and disc ounts of $132,183.51, total re sources $231,528.71. Henderson's first bank was organized in 1882, Hendtrsonville's first bank wtr.a or ganized iti 1901.

A. Zol licofferand filed with Congressman Poll in his efforts to secure an appro priation for a public buildingiu Hen derson, the same being published in these columns February 22nd, is submitted: Henderson is the county scat of Vance county, which county was established in 1881.

AN EDITOR'S APPEAL To Broth, r Publishers in B half of ihe Lost Child of Dr. Byrs of Seeley ville, Ind. New Harmony, Indiana, Times. If the editor of every paper in the central west will publish these lines there is no question but, what Dr. S. I. Byers, of Seeleyville, lud., will re cover his little son who was stolen from his homeone year ago last May. Dr. Byers has spent his entire re sources in search for his child and un less the big hearted members of the press come to assistance his son will grow up an outcast among the low est people of the earth. It is a cause that should appeal to everyone and no father r adiug these lines can do so without a quickening of the heart and a sympathetic throb. It is be lieved that if this article is printed in the newspapers it will form an end less chain that will uncover the lost boy's concealment and return him to his distracted parents. In doing this the profession if journalism will be fulfilling one of its highest destinies. Publishers whosecirculations touch the Wabtish, Ohio and Mississippi vallevs are especially requested to re produce this story of the lost child as Dr. Byers believes his son is now on some houseboat waiting to take the road in the spring. There is a reward of $500 awaiting any infor mation that will lead to the boy's re covery. No questions will le asked and if the abductor himself would de liver the boy to his parents he would not be molested. The bereaved par ents are heart broken at the loss of their only child. If each journal will reprint these lines, they will travel to every exchange table in theUnited States and bring back to a wretched home a child who is now no doubt suffering with cold, unfed and wretch ed to a degree. Think of what your own feelinirs would le under similar circumstances! This appeal is in dicted originally by n publisher who saw Dr. Byers only once, has no per sonal interest in his quest otherthan the bond of sympathy that makes the world akin, ami is inspired from the belief that the lost boy can only be found through the united effort of the country press of which he is proud to be a nremler. His recovery will lie a triumph in advertising and no editor whose heart is placed right will refuse this appeal. Remember, it mav be vour child next! The following is a description of the lost boy: description. Richmond Byers, if alive was 6 vears old last July, is of light com plexion. has gray eyes, left eye notie j ably crossed, has a small V shaped nick in the edge of his left ear, has a sharp chin and a narrow, projecting forehead. He is rather small for his age and is unusually bright and in telligent, talking after the manner of a boy much older. Dr. Byers has searched among the roving bands that frequent theUni ted States and believes that his son can be found among traveling junk i dealers, so called horse traders or movers. He does not think the boy was stolen by genuine gypsies. He t hinks he was taken by a wandering band that used him for the purpose of begging in towns along the route. 25 000,0000 PAIRS OF EYES HAVE EKE THIS HEAP THE STORY OK RICHMOND BY Kits. Up to the present timeevery South ern State with the exception of Mary land and Virginia has been covered by the Times in its effort to discover the presence of iittle Richmond By ers. Last week thetwoCarolinas were covered and eueli editor o? the week ly press in those States received a marked copy of the Ti'mecontaining a ('escriptiou of the lost child. As time goes on the big hearted ness of the couutry editor becomes more apparent. The large majority of the papers cheerfully used the "Editor's Appeal" and are assisting in this search which will ultimately mean the return of the son to his bereaved parents. Some of the papers have written editorially of tlie case and from among the list we quote the Ada, Ohio, Record: "In this work the Record desires to pay a tribute to the editor of the Times, published at New Harmony, Ind.. a neighboring town. This gen tleman is ( larence P. Wolfe who is systemically covering the United States by sending to every newspaper a marked copy of his paper contain ing a description of the lad. "Mr. AVohe also urges a new idea that.of governmental aid in the find ing of lost children or restoring waifs to their parents by allowing free cir culation of descriptive cards to be displayed in every postoffice within the possible zone of access. This plan could be made feasible, with certain restrictions and limitations and cer tainly would be a humanitarian work. "The Record bespeaks for the suf fering parents and the great hearted editor who is so generously aided in a vigorous campaign by the newspa pers of Ohio in an effort to see wheth er the little fellow is within our bor ders. As Mr. WToIfe says, the coun try papers are only too glad to give Dr. Byers newspaper space that money could not buy." As an illustration of the wide pub licity the Byers case has received from the country press, the Times has sent out over 5,000 marked copies to the weekly papers of the South. Grant ing that these papers have a sub scription list averaging 1,000 and it will be seen that the story of the lost child ha had a circulation in 5,000, 000 papers. Each subscriber repre sents five readers and the startling figures are presented that 25,000, 0(0 pairs of eyes have read the sor rowful story of how the little cross eyed lad, whose left ear carries a tell tale nick in its upper edge, is being sought by his grief-stricken parents. And all of this has leen done at not one cent of expense to Dr. Byers, whose resources have already been exhausted in his vain search for the stolen child. Don't Get the Habit.

Sold at Parker's Two Drug Store. What Taxation Should Be. Fnyetteville Observer. The Richmond Times-Dispatch gives this definition of the duty of the State in its exercise of the power to tax: "When the State undertakes to assess taxes against its citizens and compel them to pay the sum so assessed, it then becomes the bounden duty of the State to employ every means at hand to make the assess ment fair and equitable, po that the burden of taxation shall fall upon each and every citizen according to his ability to pay. Our protest is against double taxation and unjust taxation in all its forms; against any system which discriminates against some and in favor of others. The system should be so adjusted as to make the burden and lienefits fall equitably upon all." The Times Dispatch is right. There is no greater abuse of the power of govern ment than the inequality of taxation which, by one device or another, is enforced in some parts, perhaps many parts, of this country. Torture by Savages. ''Speaking of the torture to which some of the savage tribes in the Philippines subjeet their captives, reminds me of the intense Buf fering I endured for three months from in flammation of tbe kidnpys," says V.

What Promised to be Noted Case Came to Abrupt Ending in Mecklen burg Court Last Week Without the Introduction of Evidence on Either Side Damages of One Penny for the Plaintiff tie Pay Inc His Own Costs. Charlotte. X. C March 19. The damage suit for $50,000 brought by Dr.. J. Mciv'eliray against tho Ob server Publishing Company came to an unlooked for ending this ufter nooii at 4.30 o'clock, this, too, after the jury had been selected and wit-; nesses front far and near had arrived, i The compromise if such it may be ; called, is best set forth in the follow-1 ing judgment that was signed by Judge Henry Bryun: "This cause eoming on to be heard upon the complaint and answer, the following issues were agreed upon by the counsel of the respective par ties, as those which aroso from the pleadings, to-wit: "First. Are the charges made oi and concerning the plaintiff by the defendant, as set out in the plead ings, true?" "Second. What damages, if any, is the plaint iff entitled to recover? The jury was thereupon empanel ed to try the 6aid issues, and his honor held that, the burden of the second issue being upon the plaintiff and the burden of tlie first issue be ing upon the defendant, the plaintiff had the right and was required to first introduce evidence. The plaintiff, by his counsel, then stated to the court that he would in troduce no evidence at this stage of the case, bearing upon the second issue. The defendant, thereupon an nounced, through its counsel, that it would introduce no evidence bearing upon the first issue. The court thereupon instructed the jury that the burden of the first issue lieing upon the defendant, and it having introduced no evidence, the answer to that issue should be "No." and that the plaintiff haying introduced to no evidence bearing on the second issue, the answer there to should be nominal damages, to wit: one penny.
