This Rigid Enforcement of the Prohibition Law in Cases Where No Crime Was In tended Likely to Have Bad Effect Wholesale Indict ment of Prominent Citizens of Charlotte Who Had More Beer in Their Possession Than the Statute Allows Legal Aspect of Case. Charlotte Obncrver. That the movement looking to wards the idictment of the people of this eity who have within the past two years or ho ordered quantities of beer and whiskey in excess of the stipulated legal amount, 2 gallons, will ultimately work to the detriment of prohibition is the opinion of a num ber of the most prominent anti-saloon men of the city. The agitation hais furnished a lively theme since the report of i he grand jury when it pre sented theiiamesof anuiuberof well known citizeus of the city. It, is admitted that the majority of the members of the social clubs Van be included in the list of those who have had an excess of beer on hand since the prohibition law became ef fective. It is customary for them to order a barrel whenever it is needed and to keep it in the clubs where ii can be obtained as easily as possible. And if the club rosters are included, it is beyond doubt that some of the most influential people of the city will be indictable under the statute and among them sornogood prohibi tionists, too. WHAT ONE MAN SAYS. "1 was utterly surprised to see the names of some of the men appearing as having been presented for the vio lation of the statute, said Mr. Cam eron Morrison, who is a prohibition ist or the smcerer sort. Of course everbody knows what the statute was intended for. It was put on the books when Salisbury was wet and when the negroes were running there from Charlotte and bringing back quantities of liquor for retailing pur poses. It is a good statute, but will soon come into disrepute if good citi zens of Charlotte whom everybody kuows are not m the liquor business are indicted under it. The statute was passed because it was necessary at the time to break up the whiskey trame on the part of the colored people, and its workings were suc cessful to that end. It was never in tended to include a good citizen who ouirbt to have the lejral njrht to or der beer for himself if he cares to. I am afraid that a wholesale prosecu tion will work against the interests of prohibition aud bring it into further disrepute anions that very large class which is inclined to dis approve of it now. Even among the best of the advocates of no saloons the measure will not be generally approved from the indication of the talk which one hears now. LEGAL ASPECT OF CASE. In this connection a very able edi torial lately appeared in the nil mington Star by Editor Gray, who is regarded as a very able legal ad viser as well as a pencil-pusher. It is as follows: "The etatutes based on prima fa cie evidence are, we are glad to see, to be given at last a real test in the case of the social clubs and the em inently respectable gentlemen indict ed uuder the liquor laws by a Meek leuburg grand lury. In the one case the clubs are indicted under the stat ute making profession of United States license prima facie evidence o the illegal sale of intoxicants: m the other under a special statute which makes prima facie evidence of lllega sale the prossession of more than a specified amount of liquors. 'To many people, prohibitionists not a few ainongv them, laws of this character are expressive of a grave and serious tendency. Both have been in a measure upheld by the Su preme Court, but tu no case has the issue been drawn as sharply ana clearly as it will be in these. Upon the result will depend only incident-; ally the matter or liquor legislation; more important will be the extension en- restriction of legislative powers. WHAT 1'ROSSESSIOX MEANS. "What a man has has heretofore been bis, beyond the power of the law toeay that he had it for an illegal pur pose. Possession, when coupled with other evidence, has long been com petent in certain cases as evidence tending to show crime. On the other hand it has been an agelong tenet that crime must be established 'be yond a reasonable doubt,' and wheth er prima facie evidence of this char acter is of itself sufficient to justify a conviction or whether the jury shall be left to say that it is sufficient is in a sense immaterial. The serious point is whether a state of facts consist ent with innocence can under any circumstances justify a virdict of guilty. "This class of evidence seems to us to be in line with the statutes mak ing reputation competent evidence of guilt. A refinement has held this to be different from the contemned 'hearsay' evidence, but it is not easily discerned by the layman. It is in line with the practice of trying upon misdemeanors the punish ment for which has been raised to rank with that in the case of felonies, persons who have never been indicted.

In a serious way thecases muet final- j ly test the question of whether the old order will continue under the constitution, or whether the new order shall obtain which puts the Legislature practically above the constitution. That tho trend is in the latter direction all who watch events may see in the action of Con gress; as acts of this character indi cate in a more restricted sphere of in fluence within the State. SERIOUSNESS OF SITUATION. "We but suggest the seriousness of the Charlotte situation. We take it that not even the grand jury bring- ng the indictments thought that the Charlotte clubs were 'blind ti gers. Certainly, they conld not have imagined that the officer of the Mys tic Shrine was engaged in peddling iquor. The grand jury, however, is to be commended. It took the law as it ound it, without attempt to arro gate to itself judicial functions. It did its duty, and the burden is off its shoulders. Very properly the grand ury did not undertake to say that he law was right or that it was wrong. In the light of that question i is to de hoped that the cases will go to the Supreme Court clearly de nned upon the issue, so that the new ohcy of the law may be recognized, iitisgoou, anu uisregaruen n n s ad.

Curtis Brave and Oal lant Soldier of the Union Army Whose Recent Death was Greatly Lamented by Confederate Veterans and Others Who Knew Him. General Newton Martin Curtis, the lero of Fort Fisher and author of 'From Bull Run to Chancellorsville," who recently died in New York city, was born in St. Lawrence county, N. Y May 21, 1835, where he still had, atOgdensburg, aheme. He attended the Governeur Wesleyan seminary. The day after Fort Sumter surren dered to the Confederates it was sug gested in the town of De Peyster, N. Y., where he was living, that it send fourteen men to Ogdensburg to form part oi a company that should join the Union forces. Curtis, then twenty- six years old, was for organizing a company and taking it to Ogdens burg to join a regiment there. lie started in to raise a company before President Lincoln called for volunteers and in April was in Albany with eighty men, whose services, along with his own, he wanted to offer. The little company was made a part of the Sixteenth New York, and young Curtis was its captain. lie was at the tirst battle or Jiuu Run and served with the Army of the Potomac until the battle of Antie tam. lie was wounded during the peninsular campaign, after which he was promoted to be lieutenant coio nel of the One Hundred any Forty second regiment. He was soon made its colonel, and it was with that command he saw his hardest fight ing. The 'exploit oftenest connected with his name was the assault and capture of Fort Fisher, which was a strong seacoasti iortincaiion iu North Carolina between Cape Fear river and the Atlantic ocean, it re sisted all attacks until the winter of 18G4-5. His regiment was part of a force under the command of General Butler which was landed near the fort. Colonel Curtis led his men close up to the fort while the fleet bombarded it. , General Butler gave up the fight and ordered Colonel Curtis to retire The colonel and his men remained near the wall of the fort. He kept sending back word that he could , take it if his superior would let him. . He finally retired after the fourth or der directing him to do so. I Upon the return of the expedition to Fort Monroe General Grant, hear ing of the colonel's exploit, sent for him and asked a lot of information i about the seacoast fortification, and the colonel was brevetted a brigadier general. General Grant ordered that another attempt be made on the fort, replacing General Butler with General Terry. Another brigade was added to the force. j General Curtis' brigade advanced j by degrees, lying down flat and then running foward ten or fifteen yards. The enemy got in one volley at them which was ineffective, and by that timetheattackers were just under the walls of the fort and below the plane of fire. The attackers scaled the walls and took the bastion nearest the Cape Fear river, and then began a stubborn fight toward the seacoast end, driviug the garrison from one traverse to another. Though wounded four times dur ing the day. General Curtis kept his command until sunset, when an ex ploding shell sent a piece of metal j against bis head, knocking him j senseless and robbing him of his Wt i eye. He remained unconscious five j house, and it was thought that he ' was dead. His obituary was written by the New York newspaper corres-. pondents. He was -commissioned brigadier general after that exploit and some years later received a medal of honor for his services here. ! Are you frequently hoarse?

A Word By the Way. i Raleigh Mat Democrat. ' If anybody thinks this paper would fight in theiuterest of liquor, he is to that degree mistaken. We tight for a fundamental principle of Democ racy, which must apply to liquor or water, as the case may be. The truth is, the liquor men out of the State are not friendly to a paper i thatholds thepositionthis one d(jes. I They want the situation to remain , just as it is. All they want is for Cou i cress to hands off, which it will for ever do, and lee them squat over the border line and sell as much or even more whiskey than they ever did at retail prices to the tradem Nort h Car olina. The blind tiger is not wor rying; he is doing well, whether he is operating his business in a glass front drug store or a hole in the wall. He is letting the world wag. There could be but one better situation for lim, and that is to have the open bar, which no appreciable influence n the State will ever advocate. 1 here IS no man so blind as the man who will not see. Why the advocates of State prohibition cannot see that heir course plays into the hands of the wholesale liquor dealer in another State is simply unaccount able. What we want to see is for the Democratic party to live up to its ong-established principle; this will regulate every human interest, ad ust all controversises, whether thev be about water or wine. If we must endure these evils, and we must, let us so adjust them that thev will be under the law of our State, and make their presence compensate the tax payers for the evils they cannot es cape. FOR VALUE RECEIVED. New Phase of th Question of Validity of the Anti-"Free Pass" Section of the Hepburn Railroad Rate Lsw An Injustice to Both Newppers and Railroads That O.ight to be Remedied. News and Observer. The alleged "free passes" t hat news papers are supposed to receive have been construed as knocked out by a decision of the United States Su preme Court in the matter of the Hepburn railroad rate law, but is apt to come up again iua new phase "for value received in the Supreme Court In the legitimate advertising of railroads by newspapers, there can not be any "free passes," for there is simply an exchange of commodities, the railroads paying for so much space for advertising with so many miles ot transportation. The Hep burn law applying to inter-state travel it affects contracts for trans portation across State lines and the railroads by the discision of the United States Supreme Court are for bidden to pay for advertising with mileage books or any form of tickets, this however, not applying to trave within the State, which is regulated by the ?tate laws. The new phase of the matter, in the question of "for value receceived," is thus discussed by Leslie s eekly: "An interestingquestion has arisen as to the validity of the anti-free pass section of the Hepburn railroad rate law. The Louisville aud Nash ville Railroad, in settling a claim for personal injuries twenty years ago, agreed, as a part of the considera tion, to issue an annual life pass to a man and his wife. After the passage of the Hepburn law the railroad re fused to issue the passes, and the parties at interest brought suit to compel the fulfilling: of theircontract. The Kentucky court ordered the rail road to issue the passes, on the ground that they were not 'free,' but were granted for value received. The case is now before t he Supreme Court of the United States. If that court decides that the contract is not a violation of the Hepburn law, the de cision may have some bearing on the ruling of the interstate commerce commission against the exchange of transportation by railroads at full rates with newspapersforadvertising space at full rates. "It is understood that the inter state commerce commission, by a majority of only one vote, decided that this exchange vyas in violation of the law, although it was pointed out that it was not the granting of free transportation, but simply an exchange of commodities at full rates. In the State of New York the public service act, as originally drawn, con tained the phraseology of the Hep burn law regarding free transport; tion, but some of the interior news papers of the State suggested that the law should make clear that an ex change of advertising space at full rates fdr railroad transportation at full rates was not prohibited. Gov ernor Hughes concurred in this sug gestion, and the law was modified accordingly and so stands on the 6tatute books. "Leading newspapers would prefer to put their business with the rail roads entirely on a cash basis, but many rural papers have for years been accustomed to exchange adver tising t-pace for transportation and they feel that they should not le prohibited Irom continuing to do so."

Playing With Fire, i Men Who Seek Repeal of Pro hibition Law, Only Less Dan gerous Than Those Who, Having Seen Their Views Prevailing at an Election the Wounds of Which are Not Yet Closed, Would Seek Gratuitously to Reopen Those Wounds Agitation Either Way Full of Danger. N ilrninntou Sthr. It must be confessed that what we conceive to be the tlesin of the large majority of people in the State with respect to the matter of liquoragita tion seems in a fair way to bo dis regarded at the Democratic prima ries tor nominations to the next Leg islature. In Henderson, the Hon. W. A. Self. of Catawba, is heading a movement ooking to the organization of a ocal option pnrtv within the part v. pledged to support no man for the Legislature who doe's not express himself as in favor of the repeal of the prohibition law. this meeting is reported to have been largely attended and to have aroused considerable enthusiasm. On the other hand, the Rev. R. L. Davis, active agent of the Anti- Saloon Ijeague, in violation of the, spirit if not the letter of the resolu tion of the League's executive com mittee, states that he has been tour ing the State in the interest of nrous- ing sentiment against the "near beer saloon," and in the prohibition organ issues a call to the "forces of temperance and righteousness" to be truly vigilant aud to see to it that tlioe men are nominated who will protect the present prohibition law." We take it that both of these ap peals are unwise, tmngerous to the party, and pernicious to the morals md the cleanliness of the forth coming election. It is significant that both these factions are Hailing under the banner of "temperance; ana it is tno trutn that both are drunkenly playing with a sort of liquid fire that, as it must inevitably affect all the electorate, is far more to be feared than the "fire of liquor, even though it come from a "blind j tiger." You cannot hope for a clean election; you connot hope for a reasonably united party; you cannot hope for anytfiing except further strife and bitterness and waste of time in any election in which the question of liquor is a matter of di vision. The men who would reopen this question at this time by pledg ing candidates to vote for the repeal of the prohibition law, are only less dangerous than the men of contrary view, who, having seen Iheir views prevailing in an election the wounds of which are not yet closed, would seek gratuitously to reopen those wounds. With the prohibition law enacted in the State by theexpress command of over forty thousand majority, what hope is there except the passion for strife in at this time starting a campaign for the repeal of that ver dict? On the other hand, what ex cept a desire to makeof a sordid issue a continuing political sore can ac tuate such a course as Mr. Davis recommends? We submit that there is something in this State for the Democratic part' to do except to go into epilep tic fits over liquor. We submit that it is an affront to the intelligence of the voters to ask them, after a long and heated campaign, to select can didates with reference ta.whether or not they favored or did not favor the prohibition, law. The election was supposed to be non-partisan, and certainly many thousands of Repub licans voted for it. To keep liquor a political matter among Democrats is to slash at the throat of the party. Evidently referring to theeditorial of the Star of some weeks ago, Mr. Self at Henderson is reported to have said that the editorial in question had stated that the meeting would be "detrimental to prohibition" and that the movement should le "squelched." We have never stated that this meeting would Ik; detri mental to prohibition. Prohibition must prove itself, hurvive or dieof its own weight. Agitation either way, with liquor or prohibition as an is sue, we believe at this time to be full of germs of pnt-siou, unrest and un reason. We are for the status quo, because it holds a measure of jjence from the activity of fanatics on both sides of a question that we conceive to be of far less importance cither than the good jroo'l of th party or the nd higher if.ien.HtH of the novnujr that the Itepubliean better a State. Knowing that the Kepu party is preparing, after its cow ardice, to attempt a liquor issue, we do not fear for the Democracy as a party; we do, however, look with suspicion upon a program by pro hibitionist and local optionist for liquor which mav make the KtiCCeeH oi the party a KUtcews oi uiacoruani lustead of uarmoniou-j elements.
