ASUKIiOKO, OUT. lvl.
With over one third of your mono'
locked up in the vaults at Washington
and out of circulation, is it strand
that money is scarce ami times hard':'
Js the Democratic party responsible
for this condition of things '!
The laying of the Iulernal Revenue
and the Tariff and the withdrawal of
f00 millions of money from circula
tion are the acts of the Federal Gov
ernment awl the Federal Government,
be it remembered has been under the
control of the Republican party for
about lil years, and id, therefore re
sponsible. While the Republican party had
Control of this State in 'C'J-'70 and
'71, they spent every cent of (he
school fund, increased the State debt
15 millions and yet did not educate a
single child in the State nor build a
mile of Kailroad. And besides the
rate of taxatiou was 80 cents on the
dollar. What has been the result
since the Democratic party gained
control ? Look at the schools and
the asylums for both races. Look at
the Railroads. Only last year we spent
$725,000 to educate the 250,000 chil
dren in the State. These are facts
worthy the sober attention of fair
minded men and the man who has at
heart the welfare of his Stale and that
of his children will weigh them well

Today (Monday) the candidates
for the General Assembly and the
County offices make their first bow at
Isaac Kinney's in Cedar Grove town
ship. The Democracy of Randolph
is fortunate in placing its banner in
the hands of llobins, Steed, Caviness,
Jloffitt, Teague, Bulla and Lewis who
will not. we predict, permit its folds
to trail in the dust. Capable, sober
and efficient, they are worthy the hon
ors bestowed by their Tarty and
worthy the fullest conGdence of the
people. They have been tried and
sire not wanting. Without disparage
inent to the gentlemen who wear the
honors of the Prohibition and Repub
lican parties the Couiueh commends
1he Democratic nominees and the
principles which they represent and
which they will announce, elucidate
sim defend as in every way deserving
the fullest endorsement at the ballot
Marmaduke S. Robins, Esqr., the
-candidate for the Senate in this Dis
trict is known throughout the District
for his sterling worth, his ability and
his high character. In Randolph
where he was born and reared and
where ho is best known no assurance
from the Coueier is necessary to sat
isfy his most bitter opponent that if
elected, he will do his full duty 'to the
people he represents ; that he i3 thor
oughly equipped ; that he is inflexi
bly conscientious and honest ; that he
will labor zealously and ably for his
people and the State ; and that he will
rank at once among the ablest of the
next Senate and reflect credit not on
ly upon himself but upon his county
and his District. As a Representa
tive of this county in '62-64 and as
our Senator in '66-67 and in '76-'77
iind again as our Representative in
1883 he made a record for attention
to duty, for fidelity to principle, for
ability and for distinguished services
which entitle him to the suffrages of
all men who would reward merit and
the faithful performance of public du
ty and who would place their cause in
the hands of an experienced, tried and
courageous public servant. To say
that he has enemies is the highest ev
dence of his worth and that he has
done bis duty through these long
years of public life. He is before the
people not by hi9 own seeking. He
protested in good faith and for good
reasons agaiust running but yielded
finally to the repeated and persistent
solicitations of his Party friends.
The writer knows whereof he speaks.
The people wanted him, and they
have put him out. Let us elect him
by an overwhelming majority and no
District will be more abl' and faith
fully represented than the 25th.
IJUinVELL W. STEED, ESQ ,
the senior nominee for the House is a
native of Randolph and tho' he has
been honored more than once with
public confidence and has nerved in
various public capacities is as unas
euming as a 15 year old plow-boy.
But while be Is the roost modest of
men he is richly endowed with that
strong hard horse commrn sense
j which afi r ui above ail i' the best
! armor for a can a any capacity.
! U.i has, been a Ju.uco of the Peace for
I yer, was elected a County Coin mis
j:,ione.r in 7a2 ami represented this
i county if, the last General Assembly,
i Like :Mr. Rubins be va-J always to be
i found at his post of duty. His lc-gis-
lalive reward is without a blemish.
He is a farrr.er, tfohd, honest and al
ways .sale and gets the biggcGt vote
where he is best known. He may
not make as big a speech to-day as
some of the candidates but he can
cist a3 big a vote in the General As
sembly as any of them and thoCou-
I kieu's word for it ha will always cast
it for the best interests of his county
and State. You cau count on him
and when the roll i3 called be will be
there. Give him your vote and he
will give you an honest and faithful
record in the next Legislature.
Vll. I. F. CAVINESS
our other nominee for the House ap
pears to-day for the first time in poli
tics and a more conscientious and up
right man never entered the politics
of this or any other county. He was
born in this county and is now in his
44th year in his prime. While he
has practiced medicine for 17 years,
he is also a farmer and one of the
best in tho county. He has never
held any public position and did not
aspire to his present prominence.
Endowed with natural abilit intelli
gent, and sensible he is as solid a3 the
"giant oak" under which he will make
hi3 maiden speech to day and if elect
ed will worthily represent not only
the farming but all the interests of
Randolph. Firm, courageous, tem
perate, cool and industrious he will be
untiring in his efforts and will do to
trust out of sight. In short he is a
christian gentleman every inch
and the Democracy of the county has
honored itself in honoring him. With
much pleasure and confidence the
CouniER presents and commends him
to the consideration of every voter
who may wish to vote for an honest,
capable and worthy christian gentle
man. He is a man who will do and
dare and die for the faith that is in
him. A vote for him is a vote you
will never regret.
' ELI A. MOFFITT, ESQ.,
is again unanimously presented to
you by the Democratic Party for tho
position of Sheriff. It has been the
Courier's pleasure heretofore to en
dorse and c'ommend hi'm as the Dem
ocratic nominee. Whether his record
has justified what the Courier said
of him four years ago is left to the
reader. He has won the proud dis
tinction "a model sheriff." He ha9
been for 4 year3 tho first and most
prompt of the 96 sheriffs in the State
to settle with the State Treasurer.
He has collected the taxes more close
ly and with less noise and trouble
than any sheriff in the State. Always
accommodating, fearless in the dis
charge of his duty, merciful alike to
friend and foe, prompt in all things,
honest in all dealings with a record
as white as the snow that mantles
the mountain's brow, he comes again
before you at the bidding of the peo
ple. Your money books have been
kept for 4 years as straight as a shin
gle and he has accounted for every
dollar. Why change ? A good, so
ber, painstaking, prompt and faitnful
officer a model sheriff. In '66
naked from the war without any
thing save the brain and muscle God
gave him he began and has made him
self. You will vote for your best in
terests when you vote for him. His
is a responsible position. His past
is a guarantee for the future Better
go slow when you go against such an
"WILLIAM J. TEAGUE, ESQ,
will again appear before you to day
in obedience to the unanimous voice
of the Democratic Convention. That
he is a painstaking, correct.Jionest
and thoroughly efficient officer every
voter in the county knows. The rec
ords of his office are the best proof
that he does his work well and that he
makes a most excellent officer. As
an officer nothing can be produced
against him and as a man in pub!io
and private life he stands as fair as
the fairest against whom his bitterest
opponents have never yet brought a
charge. His appeal comes with dou
ble force because of his ph3sical disa
bility. But while he is physically dis
abled from the loss of a leg to do all
sorts of work, he is able and thorough
ly qualified to do the work of Register
of Deeds. A native of Randolph in
his 42d year with the best of records
he is eminently worthy the position
for which he has been named for the
3rd time by his Party. The records
'of his oMicc speak more clorfintly m
I his favor than he will ppeak to "V a
J K i e n ey ' s. Vote for him.
j ALFRED BULLA, ESQ.,
j accepted the nomination for Kufpyor
! simply to gratify his friends &:d
i Party. It was tendered to him unan
Umously. That he is qualified for its
j duties goes without sajicg. If there
j is a man in the county with more hard
i common sense than Alf Bulls carries
under his every day hat, the Courier
has not found him. In nll'public po
sitions to which he has bT h callod
whether as Justice of the Ve, Coun
ty Commissioner or Surveyor be has
been equal to his duty and performed
his work to the satisfactiorof the
people. He has been repeatedly urged
by his friends for other and higher
posit ions and was the choice of a large
number for the Legislature this time.
He is a solid Democrat a solid man
and a solid Surveyor. If you don't
vote for him, you won't do what the
Courier thinks you ought to do. He
can't be beaten.
DR. CLAUDE n.Jg&S,
the Democratic nominee by a unani
mous vote for Coroner was elected by
a big majority two years ago. He is
a physician with a wide practice and
a self-made man. He dug and work
ed his way on the farm, on the Rail
road, at teaching and other ways
through the University of Pennsylva
nia and since 1879 has enjoyed a lu
crative share of the profits of his pro
fession. It is proper that this posi
tion should be filled by a physician.
That Dr, Lewis is fully equipped to
meet all the duties which his election
may bring him will not be denied.
Young, popular and energetic he will
get a big vote and a big majority.
He is the youngest man on the ticket
and has a bright future) before him.
Give him your votes. It's a good,
solid, 7-horse team Robins, Steed,
Caviness, Moffitt, Teague, Bulla and
Lewis. Good men and a good cause.
Let's roll up our sleeves, go to work
and give them a a rousing majority.
Work is the price of it. Hurrah !

Methodist Sunday school in Thomas
ville, N. C, has during one Sunday
School Quarter beginning with July,
and ending with September, memor
ized and recited three thousand nine
hundred and thirty-four (3934) verses
of the Bible averaging 302 each
Sabbath. This' included the first
chapter of Matthew, and all of the
four gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke,
While this fact i3 indicative of a
very superior power of memory in this
young man, yet it is very certain that
his best efforts were not exercised.
; Being a young man of very industrU

excellence, he was awarded a hand
some Oxford Teacher's Bible, with
name on back, in beautiful golden let
