Publie Meeting in Pender.
Bcbgaw, N. C:, Feb. 2nd, 1879.
At a meeting of the Democrats of Pen
der county, to-day, Dr. E. Porter was
called to the chair, and Mr. Bruce Williams
was requested to act as Secretary. A com
mittee on resolutions reported the following
through their Chairman, pr. Satchweil,
which was adopted
Whereas, Toe people of Pender county
are properly alive to the importance of
public measures now before the fcetslature
and agitating the public mind of the State.
Beaolted, That we are opposed to the
project of making new roada or of keeping
up those already ronatrncted by taxation,
Dot are in uvor or aanenng to tne
system of working public roads, and be
lieve it would i be efficient it the present
law in relation to overseers and road hands
shoul l be rigidly enforced.
Resolved, That the interest in sheep
husbandry and of popular education de
mand the enactment by the Legislature
or a dog law, as it is commonly called, and
that such a law would be of great benefit
to all classes and colors in Pender county,
and of immense advantage to the people
of the whole State.
Resolved, That the welfare and good
name of our noble old commonwealth
demand that the present Legislature
should mase some fair, just, and honor
able compromise of such nortiona
of the public debt of the State
as North Carolina is bound in honor
to pay, and that in ordor for the interest
of such amount of the principal of said
debt1 as the Legislature may agree to
pay, may be felt with the least incon.
venienco and hardship by the people, we
recommend our present general assembly
to pass the bell-punch law, as the best
means of paying the interest of such
principal, believing as we do that th9
principle and purpose of j such a law is
wise and just, and needs to be put in legal
operation in North Carolina.
Resolved, That the Representative and
Senator in the Legislature from Pender,
are hereby respectfully requested to use
ineir innuence in the General Assembly
against any law proposing to keep up
the public roads of Pender by taxation,
and in favor of the measures announced
and approved of ia these resolutions.
Mr. Bruce Williams introduced the
following resolution which was adopted:
That inasmuch as the Democratic
Executive Committee of the county
having failed or refused to act in regard
to recommending Magistrates for appoint
ment by the present Legiature, that this
meeting recommend that the Democrats
of each township meet at their respective
voting places on Saturday, the 8th inst.,
at 12 o'clock, M. and recommend to our
Senator and Representative in the Legisla
ture from Pender county, the names of
such men asjthey may desiretobe appoint
On motion the Secretary was instructed
to prepare the proceedings of this meeting
and request their publication in the
