dy, colored. Gowdy claims the
; to vote in a lengthy paper. He
is represented by Obear & Douglass,
of Washington The order is as fol

W. Briggs Green, do show cause be
fore me on Monday, August 5,1895,
in the United States Circuit Court of
Appeals room at Bichmond, Ya, at
3 o'clock in the afternoon, or as soon
thereafter as counsel can be heard,
why an order should not be made in
this canse enjoining and restraining
him from further exercising, the
powers and privileges claimed to be
conferred by certain alleged acts of
the State of South Carolina upon him
as the incumbent of an alleged office
known and described in said alleged
enactment as 'supervisor of registra

?: 1
It see ms, from a perusal of the bill 8
in this case, which was seen in the '
office of Obear & Douglass, here, that J
it diners fn some essential particulars
from the Mills case, recently decided
in the Circuit Court of Appeals. The
Mills case was brought in behalf of
himself and all others like situated
against W. W. Briggs Green, in his
official capacity as supervisor of reg
istration, while the new case is a suit
against Mr. Green individually, and
it seems that he is not sued as super
visor. Upon the contrary, it is posi
tively alleged in the bill that the sec
tions of the registration law which
create the office are themselves, to
mber with all the balance of the
act, unconstitutional, and that there
exists in the State no such office as
supervisor of registration. And it is
claimed as a legal consequence that
the acts and regulations under which
Mr. Green, the supervisor has been
acting are his own individual acts.
Another essential difference is that
it is in so many words alleged that
the complainant was distinctly re
fused registration. Also, it is stated
in the bill, that he is a citizen of Af
rican decent. The peculiar hard
ships of the act of 1894 requiring
the supporting affidavits are made
clear by the facts surrounding the
particular case of the party suing.
And that act is specially attacked as
in violation of the fourteenth amend
ment as guaranteeing to every citi
zen the equal protection of the law,
it being claimed that under the act of
1894 impossible and impracticable
conditions to register are imposed
upon the voters unregistered at the
time of the passage of that act.
which are not required and imposed
upon those electors now upou the
registration books.
The particulars in which the regis
tration laws are in violation of the
fifteenth amendment to the United
States Constitution are set forth fully
and in detail. It is also affirmatively
stated in the bill that the complain
ant has under the facts of his case no
remedy at law at all. Among other
things, that a judgment at law for
damages against the defendant could
not be collected, and that even if col
lected would not be adequate relief
to him for the deprivation of hie right
to vote The other legal remedies
heretofore suggested in the Mills
case are disposed of under the facts
of the new case, and it is clearly al
leged that the complainant can have
no legal recourse to any of the sug
gested remedies.
The bill in addition to a number of C
other differences between it and the j jj
Mille bill seems to be without any of j
the technical objections raised by the j
council for the State in the former j
case. The document in question is a
very full and carefully prepared and g
elaborate legal paper, but its length g
is such that it cannot be here given ! ?
in full. Hence the above synopsis, j 3
It is inferred that the purpose of the j 0
counsel is to differentiate the new 1 u
case from tbe old so as to obtain an
injunction in the new case without
conflicting with the principles laid
down by the Circuit Court of Ap
peals in tbe Mills case. What the
result of this fight will be of course
no one can tell. This m neh, howev
er, seems to be certain? namely : That
it ree en te the ieeues tipo the mer
its clearly and sqnarely and absolute*
ly freed from any of the technical
points upon which the counsel for
the Staie^sought * ta side* track the
former case, and that when this case
reaches the United States Supreme
Court it will be difficult to dodge the
momentous issues made.
It seems that Mr. Obear, of the
firm of Obear & Douglass, appeared
before Judge Goff a few days ago
and obtained the rule to show cause
elsewhere referred t?. The hearing
has been Set for the 5th of August.
3 p. m , in the court room of the
Circuit Court of Appeals at Rich
mond, at which time it is expected
that the arguments on the case will
take piace. It is not known as yet
who will take part in the argument.
Probably Mr. . Obear will make
the argument for the aomplainant.

TV here Are You Going This Summer?
To The Most Beautiful Spot on Earth.
H/U I7 9 Because it is not only the most beautiful spot on earth
lllll ? with its grand water falls, pretty little glenns, tower
ing mountains and magnificent views, but it is the most pleasant
place in the mountains.
It is away from the bustle and noise of railroads, and is,
therefore, the best place to gain health and see real pleasure.
How do you- get there from Atlanta, Ga., Norfolk, Va.,
Wilmington, N. C, or intermediate points ? Parties going to
Chimney Rock take the Seaboaed Air Line Trains, which are
the best equipped of any line of Road in the South. The Sea
board Air Line carries Chimney Rock visitors to Rutherfordton,
from which point a connecting line of stages carries them over
a splendid mountain road, through valleys, and by a beautiful
river with its ever changing scenery.
What Hotel Shall I Stop At?
By all means stop at the Mountain View Inn. conducted by
Mr. George P. Horton and his estimable wife. The hotel is
new, the furniture and fittings of the best, and the surroundings
well kept. From the hotel is a grand view of the most wonder
ful waterfalls in the United States, the famous Chimney Rock
towering hundreds of feet into space.
Mrs. Horton is an estimable lady, making every one feel at
home as soon as they arrive. She gives her personal attention
to her house-work, and superintends the cookiug department,
which insures the most perfect cleanliness. The kitchen is kept
as clean and neat as the parlor under her management. Mr.
Horton is a hustler and believes in having everything fixed to
; please hh guests. He has lawn tennis and croquet grounds,
quoit pitching grounds, a marble yard, [that is, a yard nicely
graded, where the boys, men and ladies can play the old, but
ever new games of marble, "roll-hole, knuckle down, <fec."] He
has swings, joggling boards, turning boards, and many amuse
ments .for the children. He has rustic seats over the beautiful
grounds. Nowhere else can visitors find a place where they can
get the comforts, and pleasures that they do at Mr Horton's hotel,
But Is Not The Price Too High ?
No ! It is really a puzzle to the visitors how Mr. Horton fur
nishes the excellent fare and the amusements to visitors that he
does for the small charges. Some of his visitors have insisted
on paying him more, and this is the reverse of most cases, for it
it usual to have visitors growl at high rates. He only chargea
seven dollars per week, or twenty-four dollars for a full calendar
This is valuable information to me; and a number of my
friends who are going to take a vacation this summer, and I am
certainly under obligations to you, and will see you during July
and August at Mr. Horton?s. By the way, how far is it from
Asheville ?
Only twenty miles. A three hours drive with a good spann
of horses will take you to or from the beautiful mountain city,
and to Vanderbilt's elegant summer home. In fact it is said
that Vanderbilt is going to have a cottage built at a point near
Chimney Rock. As to all these points you can write Mr.
George P. Horton, Chimney Rock, N. C.
By-the-way, a party of prominent editors visited the place and selected
the location as the best place to build an Editorial Club House, and they
wrote many words of praise concerning the place and section. I will quote
from the following papers :
,jH<m-p with lofty mountains on each side the most picturesque scenery
east i f di* Rockies, we, a party of editors, have met to see for ourselves
and Ml ih? world something of the real grandeur and sublimity. * * It
is a ? * and yet how many are willing to live and die without putting
forth ou*' effort to view this, wondxous scenery. + * The view
from the d?me of Chimney Rock is superb. It must be seen to be thorough
ly understood."
"The shades of night weie falling as we drew near our destination. The
harvest moon hung in the sky as we rounded Chimney Rock. At our right
was Old Baldy, under whose gigantic cliffs we insignificant mortals were
creeping along. The river sang a vesper hymn, and it seemed as if nature
was offering her evening prayer to the Creator. The view from Chimney
Rock is glorious. * * But it is useless to describe the beauties of.
this region. Go i..d see them for yourself."
"It was up hill and down dale ; now in the valley shut in by high hills,
an anon skirting the brow of a precipice hundreds of feet above the plain
beneath. Tne country between Rutherfordton and Asheville is beautiful,
rich, prosperous and happy. * * We stood upon the summit of
the rugged and picturesque Chimney and gazed abroad for sixty miles, the
eye taking- in almost at one glance the peaks of a hundred magnificent
mountains. The view is simply sublime."
There is not a missing element in this beautiful mountain scenery. There
is a succession of grand views all the way for six miles. No language can
depict the grandeur of the scenery all along the route. The Broad River
certainly is as picturesque as the famed Swanoanoa ; and larger and much
more turbulent "
"At every turn of the road as we approach, the mountains unfold, pan
oram like displaying wild grandeur almost and yet fascinating in the ex
treme. Peak after peak seemingly reaching skyward after supremacy as
though spurning the placidity of the valley, and defying the arts of the
city builders of the plains. * * It is only a few years since man
first stood upon the summit of Chimney Rock. The outlook was superb be
yond description."
"Hickory Nut Gap is the most picturesque section of country to be
found throughout the Appalachian chain. The Broad River, a restless
crystal stream, divides the ?reat gorge, leaving a towering, rugged height
on either side. Members of our party were vieing with each other in the
use of adjectives over the glorious landscape. To attempt a description of
the great gray peaks, overlooking roaring cataracts and smiling vales below
would be but sacrilege when cice a glimpse has been obtained."
A stay at Chimney Roek will cure malarial diseases, Blood Poison, Indi
gestion and Dyspepsia. Without doubt Chimney Rock has the finest air
and scenery to be found. Write to Geo. P. Horton, Chimney Rock, N. C.
and get any further information desired.
