Editorial deploring Lowry’s recent exploits (see also 12 July 1871: P. 1 col. 7 and 18 July 1871: P. 1 col. 2). Lowry is the “robber baron of the period; his stronghold is an island at the center of an almost inaccessible swamp in Robeson County …” He is a “chivalric cut-throat”; his band a “motley crew of Whites and Blacks, runaway slaves … , deserted soldiers of both armies, and miscellaneous outlaws of every stamp.”
