N. C. "WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 3, 1884. NO 210 It is not necessary for the force of an epigram that it ibonld bo. strictly true. Iiord Randolph Churchill, being asked what he thought of Irving, said: "I don't know that I should call him. a great actor, but he is certainly a curious on-. He is always Iruing cn the stage, and always Hamlet in private life." The increased severity of the admin istration in Spain ia collecting taxes is producting marked results. Much tax. able wealth which hitherto evaded the tax gatherers is continually coming to light. The cases of defalcations in Ma drid alone now exceed 2,000, and the evasions of direct taxation all over the peninsula reach a large amount. This is the stanza ot a song which threatens to rival the popularity 67 the "imgon ballard ot Disraeli's timo in England, and John Bright joined with the twenty thousand in singing it at Manchester: The haughty Peers must pass the bill And stand not m the way; Peers over people must not rule In this enlightened day. It is an insult to the intelligence and decency of workiugnien to call Butler their candidate. Ho has not a princi" pie or an impulse in sympathy with labor. An insincere ofiice-hunter and shameless demagogue he will get the vote of no working mau who is not wholly misled, nor the vote of any in telligent person who does not look upon the Presidential canvass .as a farce or a game. When Hartmann, the Nihilist, vras with Sophia Provskaja (hanged in 1881) working at the mine, beneath a line of railroad, with the view of killing the Czar while passing, he became in need of funds to finish the work, and Sophia suggested that he pawn his watch, which be did for eight roubles. This absence of the watch caused him subsequently to make an error in . the time of firing the match, and to this the Czar owed his life. Soothing: Influence. Iains and inflammtions resulting from severe injuries are greatly relihved and cured, at once, by the outward applica tion of St Jacobs Oil, the great pain banisher. LOCAL NEWS.

The steam yacht Passport made the trip from Sraithville to Wilmington yesterday afternoon in two hoars, in cluding two stoppings. The distance is 28 miles. The match gameot base ball between the Seaside Park and Electric Nines, played at the Athletic Grounds yester day afternoon, resulted in a yictory for the former in a score of 20 to 8 for the latter. The oyster dealers are looking for ward to a good season for the bi vales. The reports are that they will be plen tiful and fat, the frequent rains and the cool Summer ; having been good for them.

Wo invite the attention of eur citizens to the fact that first quality shirts are being made to order at one dollar at the. Wilmington Shirt Factory. tf. The steam yacht Dudine. which has f suffered some delay on account of a missing piece of machinery, has had it supplied and she will be ready to convey passengers to the beach by to-morrow. Mr. Wm. McEvans fs registrar in the first division of the First Ward and not T. C. McEvens, as it appeared yesterday in our report of the proceed ings of the County Commissioners. "Chas. Hines," poll-holder in the same division of the First Ward, should be Charles Hay no. The exenrsion on the Passport to-day under the auspices of Germania Lodge K. of P. was well attended, and the company was an agreeable one. As the weather has been pleasant we have no doubt that the excursionists have had a day ot pleasure and that all have enjoyed the occasion. The Wounded i'oliceman. Policeman Latham was suffering considerable pain this morning, al though his condition was no worse than might reasonably have been expected. The ball has yet been extracted, andJ that, lodged among the muscles of the shoulder, aside from the rugged track it made across the breast, tearing flesh and muscle in its course, would neces sarily cause considerable pain and un easiness. In our roport in yesterday's issue, we made it appear that Officer Latham was at his own house, off duty, when be heard the shooting and rushed to the scene, when, in fact, be was on duty and was in another street at the time on his way to meet his sergeant, but hearing the shots and screams repaired to the place where the tumult was in progress. Success of a Pender Boy- A competitive examination was held last Saturday in this city for a clerkship in the Auditor's department of the Wilmington & Weldon R&ilroad Com pany. A number of candidates pre sented themselves in accordance with an advertisement calling tor a young man for a clerkship in said department. The examination, fair and impartial, was rigid and protracted. The choice fell upon S. S. Satchwell, Jr., as haying passed the' best examination. He is a lad of only sixteen years of age, and is the son of Dr. S. S. Satchwell, of Pen der. The creditable success of this lad, over so many older applicants for the desirable position thus won, is complimentary to Pender and to the Warsaw High School, ot "which he has been a pupil for the last twelve months. Porapey Sneed. This notable individual is wanted. -He is lost to sight,' although 'to memory dear,' and there seems to be a determination to hunt him up. to as certain his whereabouts and bring him, will-nilly, within the hands and power of the law. Officer Strode this morn, ing was busy in serving summons upon 50 good and true white men as a posse comitatus to go and assist in searching for the aforesaid Pompcy and each person was warned to appear with 'sword and pistol by his" side' or ia other warlike ai ray. None wanted to go; they had no relish for the job I and they had so mdeh business to attend to that to leave would send everything' to . the "demnition bowwow." The officer was in nearly every instance inexorable and they were compelled to put themselves in 'martial array" and "root hog or die," which means that they had to go or run the risk of being defendants in contempt at the next term of court They went and whether they "saw and conquered" remains to be ascertained. Among those summoned was a well known gentleman who is in such feeble health that be has made all his arrange ments to leave for New York on Sat urday next, where he wjll be treated by an eminent physician. His excuse of li'-hcalth didn't count worth a cent, and he was obliged to obtain a medical ceitificate ot disability before he could be excused.. Everybody in want of Paints, White Lead, Glass &c, should go to JaoobTs The Exposition. Mr. S. G. Worth. Fish Commission er of North Carolina, whose arrival in the city is announced iu our persona column, gave us the pleasure of a call this afternoon. He informs us that he has seen many of the exhibits prepar ed by our citizens for the State Expo sition and is highly gratified at the dis play which will be presented by this city and county, as they will be highly creditable and important in aiding to advance the best interests of the section and State. The Kazoo. The small boy is now in his glory. Heljas' got a "kazoo." We should imagine that all the boys .in the city had been supplied and the way they kazoo" the city throws Guy Wright's band entirely in eclipse. We heard a band of about 6.000 ot them-judging from the noise last night and they furnished mu3ic for the eastern section of the city whichjwas a foe to all ideas of sleep. The small boy of Wilmington is a lively creature and the kazoo is his latest inspiration. Wilmingtonians Abroad. In the New York Naval Stores and Tobacco Reporter we find a list of the officers of the Naval Stores and To bacco Exchange among whom are the names of Messrs. G. W. Baily and Harry P. Russell, both well known, names in this city. Both occupy im portant and trust-worthy positions on the different committees of the Ex change, places for which they are emi nently well qualified. Mr. Baily ap pears as a member of , the Arbitration Committee and of the Trade Commits tee on Naval Stores and Mr. Russell is Chairman of the Committee on Fi nance, a member of the Committee on Naval Stores Quotations and one of that Board of Trustees of the Exchange. Registration of Druggists. It is a fact not generally known that at the last session of the legislature thephar macy act was amended so as to apply generally throughout the State. Here tofore there was a clause exempting towns of less than five hundred inhabi tants from the operation of the law. It is now necessary under this law for all druggists to be registered. All having three yesrs experience and those now in business on their own account are entitled to such registration. Applica tions can be made to the secretary of the board of pharmacy, Mr. Simpson, of Raleigh, who will furnish the necessary blanksfor registration. Such registration can oe made within ninety days by simply applying and remitting the fee, which is nominal. After the ninety days have expired registration can only be effected by applying for examination as to qualifications. Personal. Dr. S. S. Satchwell, of Rocky Point, was in the city to-day. Mr. George Harriss,' Jr., has been appointed a Notary Public. He re ceived his appointment to-day and will qualify at once. Mr. S. G. Worth, Fish Commissioner of North Carolina, was in the, city to day and registered at the Purcell House. Mr. W. E. King, ofthelato firm of F. M. King & Co., with his family leave to-night for Anniston, Ala., where be will make his home for the future. Mr. B. F. Penny, of the firm of W. J. & B. F. Penny, left here yesterday morning for the Northern markets for the purchase of Fall and Winter goods. Mr. J. Elsbach has returned to the city .alter an absence of several months looking, we are pleased to say, much improved bv his sojourn in the moun tains. Our musical friend, Prof, J. D. Smitbdeal, arrived in the city this morning and registered at the Com mercial Hotel, ne will leave again to night for the North. Mr. (J. Prigge, Jr., formerly of this city, but now the Manager ot the Bortsmoutb, Va., Telephone Exchange, has' been elected a member of the American Institute of Electrical Engin eers, and is now in attendance at the Electoral Convention of Electricians, which is in progress at Philadelphia, having obtained a leave of absence for that purpose. Congress has made a liberal appropriation for the convention and good results are expected from the deliberations of the body. Mr. Prigge has prepared a pamphlet, upon the sub ject of the use and nature of telephones. He has had considerable practical ex perience in the management and work ins lot telephonea.and we have no doubt that his pamphlet will be an interesting and instructive work. This is just the best sort of weather for harvesting. fodder, and it is eqiially as good for spinning cotton. t Some one has declared conceit wiorsc than consumption, and the comparison is a true one.
