Sheriff to Make Out Delinquent Lists and Report to Judges. An opinion has been given by the At torney-General, which is far-reaching and startling and will cause in tense anger. It is that sections 52 and 53 of the last revenue act apply to all taxes alike. Section 52 requires toe Sheriff of each county to report to the judge at each term of the Crimi nal Court following the time when taxes should have been paid and make out a delinquent list, while section 53 provides that persons or corporations who fail to pay taxes shall be punish able by a tine of not over $500 or im prisoned not over six months. The Attorney-tienerai says : "At nrst i thought the provisions unconstitu tional, being in contravention of the provision of the State constitution which provides that there shall be no imprisonment for debt, but after some consideration I have concluded they are valid." JURY FAILED TO AGREE. Ten for Conviction and Two for Acquittal. New York, June 29. The jury in the conspiracy case of the American Tobacco Company, failed to agree. It was learned that eighteen ballots had been taken during the last twelve hours, and that the vote stood ten for conviction and two for acquittal During the morning one juror became ill, and was permitted to consult a physician. The doctor declared that the juror was in danger of an apoplec tic stroke, and advised him to get out of tbe Court house as soon as possible. The juror, however, was determined to fight for a conviction, and would not hurry matters. District Attor ney Olcott said that If it were not for tbe fact that all bail cases bad gone over until the fall, he would have moved for a retrial on Monday next. "When' a jury stands ten for con viction and two for acquittal, tbe peo ple," he said, "are entitled .to the de cision on the law, while the matter is still fresh in their minds " A Father Sues His Son. A case that excited much comment in Raleigh, Tuesday, says tbe News and Observer, was that or Juugene- u Harrell against his son, John N. Har rell, tried that morning before J ustice Marcom. It seems that in settling an account with a customer Col. Harrell took a note for $48 This, he says, he gave to bis son to collect; that he kept tbe money collected, and wnicn tue suit is brought to recover.

Eight of Tlwm to Travel in a Private Car and Boycott Hotels. The Savannah News says: "Nine St. Louis drummers have equipped a private car with as many up-to-date boudoirs, lockers and shelves and a kitchen and a storeroom which holds not only samples of their wares, but all kinds of choice eatables and drink ables. In this car these nine St. Louis drummprs, representing, of course, nine different lines of goods, propose to travel over their route, stopping as usual at Wayback and Jonestown and Smithville as of yore, but not at tbe inns wbich tbe inhabitants dignify with tbe name of hotel. "Of course, the hotel proprietors and inn-keepers cannot be expected to indorse this new departure, which will turn shekels they have been ac customed to receiving from this source into the pockets of larger corpora tions, but, then, .say tbe drummers, tbinkof tbe benefits that will accrue to the knight of the grip ! When be reaches Boneville instead of getting off tbe dusty day coach and making his way up tbe sandy streets to tbe 'charming' hostelry where mosquitoes and similar accompaniments are by no means luxuries, and wbere heavy chicken pie and hardboiled eggs block tbe stauncbest digestion, be will bave his little rolling palace sidetracked, turn on tbe electric fan, enjoy a cigar and glass of punch, and in the cool of the evening stroll over to call on a customer, just to get a little exercise and incidentally, perhaps, to sell a bill of goods." Big Tobacconists In a Cake Walk. At the ladles' bazaar recently held in Durham, to raise funds for the Durham Light Infantry to go to the exposition at Nashville, the most notable feature was tbe cake walk, in which North Carolina s two great to bacco manufacturers were among the contestants.

In his speech of welcome on Ten nessee Day at the Nashville Eiposi tion, Governor Bob Taylor pays a nice tribute to North Carolina. Of her, he says; But who will chide me if I speak tenderly of -North Carolina the mother of Tennessee? We love her for the history she has made. We love her for the statesmen she has produced. We love her for her heroes, whose names shall live furs ever in song and story. We love her for the sake of her orators and poets who have enriched the literature of the world.

When the Shakers offered some time ago to give away a bottle of their Digestive Cordial to any one who might call at their New York office, there was a great rush and a great many people thought they were crazy. Subsequent events proved it to have been a very clever advertising transaction, for although they gave away thousands of bottles, it was in the end profitable; nearly every one that took a free Dottle came back for more and paid for it with pleasure, say ing they had derived better results from its use than from any other medicine they had ever used. There is nothing so uniformly successful in the treatment of stomach troubles as the Shaker Digestive Cordial, and what is belter than all, it relieves at once. Laxol, the new form Castor Oil, is so palatable that children lick the spoon clean. IN NEW ORLEANS. Bishop Kondthaler Falls Into the Hands of a Newspaper Man. The New Orleans Picayune, of June 30ih, notes the presence of Bishop Rondt haler in that city, en route to the Christian Eudnavor Convention in San Francisco. From an interview had with the Bishop, by the repre sentative of the Picayune, we quote the following : "N i, our church is not very strong denominationally, in this section of the country. Our energies are bent in the direction of education and mis sionary work Our college has edu cated many you-ig women from tbe South and Southwest. President PolkV wl w a graduate of it, so was President Johnson's daughter and Mrs Stonewall Jackson It is not a sectarian instil uuon That is, we do not atten-pu to force our denomlna tioual beliefs on the pupils We preach the articles or faith on which all the Christian churches Hgree and then stop We have Episcopalians, Methodists, B iptlsts, Catholics and even Jews there. "Our church, you know, is Episco palian, though it antedates Luther about a hundred years .It is recog nized as one of the established churches of England, though we have our own line of bishops, which is older than the Protestant Episcopal line. John Wesley, yoj know, came over to the Moravian church from the Pro testant Episcopal, and then founded his own denomination, tbe Methodist. In fact, it is often said that Method ism ts Episcopalian, plus Moravian. "We send out a great number of missionaries, and many go tbrough New Orleans to Central and South America. Our church is doing very well in that regard. "I iutend to visit Southern Cali fornia, and will go to tbe City of Mex ico, returning here in the latter part of July." BUILDING ASSOCIATIONS FAIL.

The Battle Abbey. At tbe recent-reunion of the fin i ted Confederate Veterans at Nashville, Tenn , the question of the locat ion of the proposed battle abbey, to the erection of which Mr. Charles Broad way Rouss has offered to contribute $100,000, was discussed, but no selec tion was made. Ricbmond, Nish ville, New Orleans aud other South ern cities bad their advocates. The matter was referred to a special com mittee, of which Gen. Jobn Gill, of Baltimore, is a member.

The board of aldermen of Asheville has passed on its fint readinir an ordinance providing a fine of $5 or imprisonment ten days for "any per son who shall cast or throw or de posit on any sidewalk in any street or public place within the corporate limits of the city of Asheville, any part or portion ot any fruit, or vege table, or other substance which, when stepped upon by any person, is liable to or does caure him or her to slip or fall." The ordinance is a good one. Recently on a street in Charlotte the writer saw two persons, withm three minutes of each other, slip on a banana peel, and narrowly escape fulling. A fall in either case would likely have resulted in a broken limb. The banana penl fiend should be punished wherever iound. Large Results at Small Cost. Biblical Recorder. Remember that only a very small rate of local taxation w needed to make our public schools a success. A rate of ten cents on the hundred dollars and thirty cents on the poll will cost the majority nf th cit zens in a township only f rty cents. It will cost hoiii about on dollar, some others atout two dollars, and only one or two will py as much as Hve dollars This is the price of education for the nix hundred tbous and children in North Carolina. How any man can refuse to pay so small a price ior so great a blebsing we can't understand. CAl'SKI) ILL KKKLING. White Pine Lumber Continued on the Free List. By Telegraph to The Sentinel.

NEW YCRK A 8BKKWD SWINDLKlt. J. D. Abbot Gets Richmond County OlUciaU for sj 1 . 1 OO. One of the shrewdest swindlers that ever struck Richmond county, says the Rockingham Index, was here for a few days in May, and got oyer $1,100 out of the county, took: his departure ami has not been seen or heard of since that time. He is badly wanted by most of the school committeemen of the county and in ease he can be found things will be made rather hot for him. But J. D, Abbot, the man they're after, has got his money and it is hardly probable that he will want to renew his acquaintanceship in the county of Richmond. Abbot claim ed to represent a first class chart house and went to see the various school committees. He showed them a verv good chart and sold some of them at ..'7 ."0 and in pays ment therefor lie took vouchers upon the county treasurer for the money. In other instances Abbot asked theomiWitteemen to jast sign their names to apiece of paper as an endorsement for the commissions ers. By some slick means he works ed most all the districts and it is suggested that he resorted to fors eery in several instances. The sheriff did not want to pay Abbot the money but vouchers were in pro per shape and correctly signed and he could not do otherwise. Abbot has his $1,100 but no charts have reached the deluded purchasers and t is not thought by many that he is anxiousto deliverthem. It has been severel weeks since he took the orders and got his ruonev but the present whereabouts of Abbot and the charts is an unsolved mystery. AIMIOKIHMS.
