The large monument has been completed and will be set up within a few yards of the church between Yorktown and Hampton. It is eighteen feet high and bears this inscription : "To com memorate the battle of June 10, 1861, the first conflict between the" Confed erate and the Federal land forces, and in memory of Henry L.

Clay Grubb, who was" last week ac quitted in Rowan Superior Court of the charge of murdering Obe Davis, his brother-in-law, at Piney church, last year, has the appearance of a vendetta. The slain man and the slayer each had strong friends and strong enemies and each wa3 evident ly afraid of the other, as well they might have been. They lived in a community of lawless, desperate men, and the killing of Davis, fol lowed by the acquittal of Grubb, is not calculated to promote eace of mind or give any greater assurance of the safety of life in Boone Town ship. It is in that township that sev eral blockade distilleries are report ed to be running, and it is said that the reason they are not destroyed is that the county officers and the reve nue officers alike are afraid to go in to that neighborhood on that errandr What relation, if any, the moonshine business and the neighborhood feuds bear to each other we are not in po sition to say. but it is' very certain that the making and drinking of moonshine liquor are not calculated to promote a. sniirit of obedience to lawor point to the paths of pgfcce. The recent transactions at Piney church and in Rowan Court re quite sure to deepen the vendetta feeling. This is already proven by the event of last week, which was manifestly the result of a conspiracy. His ene mies will get Grubb yet, perhaps in the next attempt, and his friends may then be expected to take reprisals, if they do not begin before he is killed. The situation at this time appears to be as well developed a feud as. even Kentucky ever witnessed. Charlotte Observer. - Washington Duke's Will.
