Honess OPTOMETRIST Eye-Strain Specialist 14 Patton Ave. Opp. PoatoOee Established ItOO. Further evidence that the etate or iho municipality does not lack author- ty to cIohu any church or otner in stitution In the Interest or public hoslth during epidemics, Is furnished by Judge George W. Connor, who has tried recently the only case of thin character, and the principle. Judge Connor declares, was not Involved. The Ashevllle government which "requested" the churches to close on the outbreak of Influenza was commended by the Greensboro Dally News for "requesting" becauae It could not. "under a decision of the supreme court of North Carolina, "command the churches to close. Following that editorial announcement the Raleigh correspondent of the Oreensboro Dally News Inter viewed the state board of health ' which furnlehed the recent Craven county case which Judge Connor tried. The state board interpreted the case las an evidence that Judge Connor, at least, did not see the police power to missed the action against Mrs. R. U Jenkins Christian scientist reader, who was defendant . ' Writing to the newspaper correspondent, Judge Connor says: "My attention has been called to a letter In the Greensboro Dally News this morning. In which you report that I decided In a cane pending in the. sunerlor court of Craven county that an ordinance of the board of health requiring a church to be closed on account of the prevalence of Influenza was void that a church could not be required to be closed. "No such case Involving this propo sition hss been presented to me I did have a case In which certain defendants were charged with the violation of an ordinance requiring the closing of churches, etc. I hold that upon the evidence offered by the state, defendants could not be convicted and sustained the motion to non-suit. I was of the opinion, and so held, that the evidence was not sufficient for the Jury to find that this particular ordinance had been violated. The question as to the validity of the ordinance or the power of the board of health to pass this or a similar ordinance was not involved. "I think it so strange that you 'newspaper fellows' In reporting the actions of Judges and courts do not seem to realize the Importance to the public of being accurate. I think much of the so-called criticism of the courts Is due to inaccurate reports In the newspapers of what the courts do or fall to do. But I shall not preach. I do not wish to be put In the position and especially at this time of having rendered a decision which may hamper the public health authorities with whom I sympathize and wish heartily to co-operate, personally and officially. 80 far as I know no one has questioned the power of the board of health to pass the closing ordinances or tho duty of all citizens to obey them. "1 will thank you .... to state that you are now informed that the case tried berore me at Mew Bern aid not Involve the power of the board of health to pose the ordinance and that no decision relative to this question was made." Judge Connor makes the opinion DRAW JURORS MARCH TERM SUPERIOR COURT Names of Jurymen for Coming Three Weeks Term of Court Are An nonnced.
