Law Has Keen Vindicated and For
eign Anarchists -Have - Met Their
Merited Doom.
Jsevcr m the history of .America
Las there oeen such a tremenduous or
a more blood-thirsty .crime than the
one committed in Chicago on Ma 4th
xooo, uy me Anarcnists Vfho were
hanged last Friday. The trouble first
began m a strike of hundred of hands
m the big McCormick Reaper Works
Company. Their places were filled
by "scabs", workmen net recognized
as such by the strikers. .
On May 3rd twelve thousand, more
or les3, workmen, chiefly of foreign
birth, and all wearing bits of red rib
bon in their buttonholes, met in the
Blue Island Avenue. They were ad
dressed by a man who incited his
hearers to take up r.rms against Mc
Cormick, and in behalf of their wives
and children, whose bread was being
eaten by the families of "scabs" em
ployed in the places of the strikers.
He was followed in a similar strain bv
Spies, whose speech was interrupted
by the "dougine" of the exeat bell at
the McCormick factory. The cry wa3
thereupon raised: "On to McCor
mick's," arcl in a -few minutes every
window in the front of the building
was emashed. A force of policemen
was hastily driven to the scene of riot.
Under provocation from the mob. the
officers fired, but, of purpose, too high
to hit. Then the anarchists attanlrpd
the officers wtth sticks and stones. The
jjolice, now reinforced, numbered
about a hundred men. Two of them
having fallen, their comrades fired in
to the howling crowd. The shots
were returned by such of the mob as
had weapons, but the great body of
rioters Dispersed, leaving six of their
number on the field of conflict It was
iound that two policemen had been se
riously hurt. Eleven of the mob ha
been arrested. - Spies returned to his
othce and wrote for his paper an arti
cle that appeared nest morning and
was oi a most violent character. Th

Sad was the minstrel's sone. in the
light of the moon, and his voice was
cracked and his knees were sprung,
and his eye3 lar out of their sockets
hung, and he howled a dirge in a for
eign tci:gue, and his lyre was out of
tune. I softly unchained the brindle
dog, and loaded the old shotgun ; while
he scraped hi3 lyre m the damp and
fog, and sung of a fairy who drove a
frog, and held a court in a somber bog,
by the light of a midnight sun. "No
fairies for me," I softly said, "so, sing
er, you'll change your tune; you must
sing a ballad of death instead, of ghosts
ic red, of regions where wander the
phantom dead, p.ud there are no stats
or moon."
He tuned hi3 harp to a dismal lay,
that chilled all the blood I ownsd,
and he sung, "There's a land in the
far away, where never is gleaming the
light of day, where the goblins damp
and the spectres stay, and the wind
with their shrieks is toned. The ghost
of the pallid dude is there, bereft of
its gilded cane ; it ha3 no oil for its
yellow hair, it has no glasses to eye
the fair, and it cannot stand on the
street and stare, so the dude is bowed
in pain." I loosed the dog on the
minstrel there, and I. fired my gun in
the damp ; and pieces t harp flew ia
the air, and stogy boots - and wads of
hair, and all that was left of the min
strel fair Avas rolled in a postage

name of Senator Ransom in connec

events did not so shape themselves as
to render it practicable for hira to
make the tender to Geb. Ransom. It
is thought now that, if Mr. Lamar

Senator Ransom, who was largely in

seat on the supreme bench. I think

Abolish the Tloiueseud Law.
The homestead law is a curse to ev
ery honest citizen in the State of
North Carolina, be he either white or
black, rich or poor. It hits long since
outlived its usefulness a:id the purpose
for which it was created. It is a duty
that the people owe to themselves and
the business and iudustriei of the State
te see that the law is abolished as soon
as possible. The abolition of this
odious law would have a marvelous
effect for g -od on every branch of bus
iness in North Carolina and would
work a wonderful change in business
relations. It must he plain to all
that the law protects the rascal and
at the same time harms the honest cit
izen who regards it his duty to p;iy
his debts. It is the policy of ihe En
ttrpr'use to condemn in the strongest
tf rms every bad law, and among sev
eial bad ones with which the people of
tit is Stuie are afdtcted, it regards the
homestead law as the worst. While
it is the duty of a good citizen and a
Icyal newspaper to respect the laws of
his country, it ia equally their duty to
condemn and seek to abolish & law
when the died ia for erd instead of
for good. High Point Enterprise.

We never knew, or had forgotten
it, until within a few days, that the
late Hon. John A. Gilmer, of Greens
boro, father of the present Judge Gil
mer, one of the cleverest men, was
tendered a place in the cabinet of Lin
coln. This we learn from theNovember
number of The Century. Wil. Star.
Mr. Gilmer was the Whig candidate
for Governor against Thomas Bragg,
in 1855, and was defeated. He was a
gentleman and a good man in every
respect. It the serious difficulty be
tween the North and the South had
not occurred, Mr. Gikner would have
anorned Lincoln's Cabinet with honor
to himself and benefit to the South.

The Carolina Caroet-linger Has His
Little Say About Fools of the North
and tno ITnconisere.l Men of the
The rfanie of Albion W. Tourgea
is familiar to all North Carolina
readers. Just after - the war he came
to North Carolina, remodeled our State
constitution, was defeated for Con
gress by Gov. Scales, was elected to a
judgeship and has since written the
"Fool's Errand," the vilest misrepre
sentation of our people ever penned,
lie finally left us, went to Massachu
setts and lost over $50,000 in Our"
Continent, a literary magazine. He
appareutly finds more fools in the
North than the one who went on the
"Errand" and we believe his opinions,
as expressed to a reporter at Pitts
burgh, Pa., will prove interesting to
North Carolina readers Ed. Senti
nel. "What do you think of Geu. Jack
son's speech at Macon, during the
Confederate reunion ?" was asked.
"I think Gen. Jackson's speech the
best thing I have read siacc Lee sur
rendered." "That's rather a novel view of it,"
suggested tho reporter. "Very many
northern men regard it ag highly -treasonable."
"Very many Northern men ma
fools, consummate and irremediable
fook. They are everlastingly pro
claiming that the South has accepted
the arbitrament of the last argument
of kings, when they ought to know, if
they d:n't, that they know nothing of
the South and very little of the South
ern people. Gen. Jackson's spoach
is the m st truthful, tha most manly
utterance which has bean giveu to tha
real sentiment of the people. I ad
mire him for it greatly. The people
of the North do not understand tho
Southerners. They cannot be under
stood, becauc-o the Southerners are a
people a? distinct and unique as two
pc-plt; can be in some paiticulars.
Thej' are two peoples and always Lave
been. Some imagiuo that slavery
was the cause of the war. It was not.
It was only the excu!, - The peonla
of the South have always demanded
the Bovereignty of thnir States, and
ti:ey demand it yet. Logically and
considerately they have followed up
trat idea ever since tho ievlution.
They have character, individually
and pride. They roseut interference
with their affairs. People talk of the
dyisg out of the old si ntimeut. It's
all nonsense. The S-uth has not
changed. The North uas changed a
dozen timos tiacethe Revolution, bat
the South does not t.-ian.je like a
weather cock. The South is solid be
cause it is a united people, pojejsinsr
some sentiment in common sufficiently
strong to keep them solid. Why, look
at their conduct during the war. Ihey
v.nre united. In tho North they were
divided, and only by the skin of our
teeth were they defeated, not conquer
ed. They submitted to poace and
surrendered only when hope of suc-
ceis had vanished and they were
famished and suffering for tho acta!
necessaries of life. Th. New South n.
it is called, is only a few Northern
men who have gone there to make
monev. They welcome capital. So
d ies every people, and they are right.
The New South is corning, however,
and when it comes, the people and
world will bo able to recognize it
without being told. They will show
t by that individuality, competence
and hon'j3ty which the times and n w is
of ourcoiutry demand."
