* Calvin Graves was elected Speaker of the Senate. He resigned on the last day of the assembly. Andrew Joyner was then elected Speaker of the House and his only offical act was to adjourn the Senate. Henry W. Miller was the Clerk.
** The 1913 North Carolina Manual identified Montgomery and Moore counties in the 32nd Senate District, but this source provided no county for the 34th Senate District. This Author believes the correct district for Montgomery and Moore Counties should be the 34th Senate District.
