Identity of the Man Who Fired
It Seems to lie Established.
Gen. Beauregard recently made
public u statement which seems to
settle the identity of the man who
fired the shot that began the late
war. The General says that last
April ho noticed a short article,
dated April 1892. in which it
was stated that Major W. M.
Gibbs, of South Carolina, claimed
to have fired the first gun against
Fort Sumter, on April 1801.
The General
As Major statement did
not agree with my recollection of
the event, I enclosed the article to
Col. A. Chisholm, of Now York,
who was one of the aides. I sent
to Major Robert Anderson, com-
the fort, to demand its
surrender, asking him, CoL Chis-
for his recollection of the
received only lately
his answer, which I submitted at
once to Gen. S. D. Lee, who was
also one of my aides on that
and happens to be now in
New Orleans. He confirms the
statement of Col. Chisholm,
which agrees with what he had
written on the subject, first on
Oct. 1882, and then on April
1892, to Col. Farrow, of
South Carolina.
As my remembrance of the
report of those affairs of my
staff agrees fully with their pres-
statement, I publish the com-
from Colonel Chis-
which is approved, as I have
by General Lee, and ought
to settle the question of who fired
the first gun, signal shell, on Fort
Sumter on the 12th of April, 1801.
According to Mr. Chisholm the
order to fire the signal shell was

THE GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE.
Thursday M. Holt
sent his message to the General
Assembly of North Carolina- The
message is very complete through-
out and is an paper, is of
such length as to bar the full text
of it from the Reflector columns,
but we have borrowed a
of it from the Charlotte Ob-
server. Before going into the dis-
of matters to which the
attention of the law makers of the
commonwealth is directed, Gov.
Holt refers to the frequent
of death into tho executive
and judicial offices of the State,
paid an excellent tribute to
the memory and services of each
who had been Ballad to his final
reward.

A revision of the statuary laws

There is great need for

The work of the board of public

strongly stated. There are now

The pressing need for enlarged
accommodations for the insane at

the Assembly in a clear and
the body is urged to

Tho need of better provisions for

Representative Scott, of Illinois,
a resolution this week
which is believed to contain a part
of the true inwardness of the way
in which Secretary Foster has
starved off the actual deficit in
Treasury during the last year. It
starts out by stating that the
Fifty first Congress provided for
the construction or extension of
public buildings, and that of
them have not yet been contracted
for; and calls on the Secretary of
the Treasury for information as to
why so many of these public
works have been so long delayed,
and why more than
for this purpose re-
unexpended during the
last two years. Mr. Scott asked
unanimous consent of the House
for the immediate consideration of
the resolution but Representative
of Maine, objected, and
the resolution was referred.
Senator friends are be-
ginning to practice calling him Mr.
Secretary, as the belief has become
general that he has yielded to the
pressure brought to bear upon
him and agreed to accept the
of Secretary of the Treasury
in President Cleveland's cabinet,
although he still declines to dis-
cuss the matter.
A report current early
the that Elkins
intended to issue orders that
would have tho effect of prevent-
the regular army making a re-
showing in the Cleveland
inauguration parade- A sub-com-
from the Com-
at waited upon the
Secretary, and were assured by
him, and also by Gen. Schofield,
who was present at the interview,
that he had no such intentions ; on
the contrary, ho had made up his
mind that the regular army should
be more largely and better
than at any previous in-
since the war. The
inaugural ball will held in the
I office building.

who had hardly been heard of

Carter's head is several sizes small-
than it was before tho election.
It is now conceded, even by the
most sanguine Republicans, that
the of the Fifty third Con-
will be controlled by the
Democratic party, although sever-
of the necessary votes will come
from populists but. no matter
where they come from, the votes
will be there to reorganize the Sen-

kins. fever then seems to
have struck at the of
J. I. about miles from
here, when Mr. Earnest Harriss
and Miss Nettie Holt were made
one. Mr. Harriss seems to have
had quite an experience in
curing the services of a minister.
After everything was ready and
the invited guests had arrived, a
telegram came from preacher
Eubank announcing his inability
to be present to perform the
as it involved a drive
through the snow of about
miles. A messenger was soon
speeding towards to

Mr. Sawyer, the Methodist minis-
Luckily, he was found

to return with tho messenger.
Accordingly they set out and

happiness reigned supreme. The
last on the list was the marriage
of Mr. John Bryant, of North
Carolina to Miss Mattie
of Va-, occurring on
same day. rather think the
next will be a young merchant of
judging from his
trips to Petersburg.
We note with pleasure, Mr. Edi-
tor, that tho Reflector and the
press of the State are advocating
the appointing of ex-Gov. J.
Jarvis, of your town, to a place in
Mr. Cleveland's cabinet. This is
right, for while we do not know
Gov. Jarvis personally, we have
watched his career through the
newspapers and to us, a native
North Carolinian, he stands for
all that is pure and noble, and we
would experience a thrill of
pleasure hearing of his
to this high office,
where, we are confident, his
and ability would reflect
honor upon himself and the ad-
ministration-
would not err in tho appointment.
The ladies of tho Methodist
church gave an entertainment at
the church last Friday night.
Owing to tho inclement weather,
there was not a very largo crowd
present but quite a neat sum was
realized. We cannot go into a
lengthy description of it and com-
are invidious, yet we
must say tho duet sung by Mrs.
Laura and Miss Rosa
Bryant deserves special mention,
and the showed their

will repeated in the
spring so your correspondent is
informed. One of the
ladies, a Miss Ellis, caught fire by
coming in contact with a lighted
candle and her dress was badly
burned but fortunately she was not
injured and no other damage was
done-
Miss Nannie of
charming young ladies,
came down last Friday to attend
tho entertainment. Russell
ant from the same place also at-
tended. We ate not surprised at
Russell for after making
the above note.

The Beautiful.
This section has seen enough snow in
the last days to make It an eye sore
rather than an object of beauty. Just as
the Reflector was getting to press last
Tuesday evening a second snow set In
before all trace of the
mas visitation had disappeared.
for we buyers this second
snow melted as it came. It cleared off
during the night clouded again
Wednesday and repeated the same pro-
gramme in the evening. Thursday even-
it snowed again with better success
and piled about inches on us. This
stuck, and the freeze that followed right
on its heels made it look like it had come
to stay. Friday missed, but Saturday
evening It snowed again and there was
another light fall Sunday morning,
as was needed. It may be added
that the Sheriff did not have to cry
during the morning session.
The Jury was then sworn and his Honor
occupied an hour a quarter in
his charge. From beginning to
end it was a lucid rehearsal of matters to
which the attention of the Jury needed
to be directed. It might well be termed
not only an able charge to them, but also
excellent educational address to the
people upon such points of law as per-
lo their duty to the State and to
each other.
He begun by saying men
live together in a community they must
be governed by law and He re-
to the famous meeting at Halifax,
when our forefathers had thrown off
British yoke and sent delegates there to
adopt a constitution for the government
of our commonwealth, and said that from
these our ideas of local government had
been handed down; and the State was
divided into comities to make the govern-
more thoroughly of the people.
Then after speaking the Jury upon
the posit ion they occupied as
of the county, and their duties
all matters of presentation, lie referred
briefly to many of the that are
contrary to the laws of cur laud-
He divided these under several head-
against the State

failure to list taxes, failure of pub-
officers to perform their duties, secret
political societies, bribery and

against the public good, such as gross
immoralities, unlawful assemblages, car-
concealed weapons, indiscriminate
sale of liquors, affrays, etc.
against public any
nuisance affecting the health and com-
fort of others, selling any unwholesome
food, putting any poisonous matter in
veils or springs- Personal

jury, slander, personal violence, murder,
manslaughter, assault and battery, care-

on this he told the audience he

He was listened to attentively, and at Its
close many of those present had a much

mentioned than before hearing the
