Recently a white man by the name of Will Wilson obtained alicense from Register of Deeds Miller for himself and Rosa Brown, a well known mulatto woman of the Mill Bridge neighborhood. They went to Magistrate Charles T. Beeker to perform the ceremony, but as Beeker knew the woman to be a mullatto, refused to perform the ceremony. This was reported to the register's office and the lciense was promptly cancelled; but Wilson was not satisfied, so they came to Salisbury, and in meandering about the depot made themselves so disgusting as to cause their arrest and on Wilson was found a pistol.
