about a year. The report states that

We learn from the Weldon News that
our genial friend, Capt. Dolly Brown
ing, for so many years past a conductor
on the Wilmington & Weldon R. R.,has
been renominated for the position of
Treasurer of Halifax county. The
News, commenting on thi3 fact, says:
It is with pleasure that we endorse
the nomination by the Committee of
Capt. L. D. Browning as candidate for
Treasurer. Capt. Browning has held
tne oince lor neany two years and wo
have yet to hear the first complaint of
his olhcial conduct. Though before
nominated by the Republicans for the
omce. ne never has been a Republican
nor Liberal, but remained true to the
Democratic party. He never has voted
any but tne JJemocratic ticket, and
never will. He gives strength to the
ticket and his vote will be gratifying to
him and his friends, of whom their
name is legion. The Democratic coun
ty ticket is now complete, and one and
all can vote for it with satisfaction.
The Young Men's Club will meet in
the City Court Room to-night, and Col.
Staples will probably address them.
The Cornet Concert Club is expected
to be present and furnish some good
music for the occasion. An invita
tion is extended to our citizens
generally to be present and we hope
that there may be a full turnout, no
only to listen to the distinguished
speaker, but to encourage by their
presence the efforts of the club, to
whom the Democratic party of the city
and county are deeply indebted for their
generous service in the past. The
weather, at the time of this writing,
does not look very favorable, but let
principle and patriotism show you the
way while protecting prudence shields
you from the storm by the aid of
umbrellas, water prools and rubber
boots. The storm we hope will subside,
in which case we know there will be a
large assemblage, but, if it should not,
why go there anyhow!

Maj. Stedman returned here Sunday

counties with Judge Faircloth. He

above all he expresses himself highly
gratified to find so few Republicans

Reported Death of the Noted
Outlaw-Shot while Resisting:
Arrest at Goldsboro.
A report reached the city last night
that Pompey Sneed had been shot at
Goldsboro yesterday while resisting
arrest. In the invalidation nf tht
matter this morning we interrogated a
gentleman who came down on the train
rom Goldsboro last night, from whom
we learned that Sneed was seen and
identified on the streets of Goldsboro
yesterday forenoon, and that his capture
was attempted, but that ne escaped, al
though several shots were fired at him
without effect. He was in the com
pany of Julins Canton, a notorious
man of Goldsboro, whose capture the
police also desired. The couple took to
the woods, taking a general direction
towards a house where Carlton's sister
lived, about a mile and a half from the
city. An armed posse was immedi
ately sent in pursuit of the fugitives
and when they arrived in sight of the
house namd, they saw Pompey seated
upon a log. The officer in charge of
the po3se directed hi3 force to surround
the house and capture Carlton, feeling
contident that the latter was within.
while he would take careot Sneed. The
instructions were put in execution
and resulted in the capture of
Carltou, who was taken immedi
ately to Goldsboro by his cap
tors, leaving the officer alone to contend
with Sneed. In the meantime the latter
advanced towards Pompej, who. as
soon as he saw the former approaching
took to his heels. The officer started
in pursuit, ordering Sneed to surrender
but as thelafer gave no sign of sub
mission, but seemed intent on escape,
and as he was getting over a fence, the
former fired, some of the shot taking
eflect in the legs of Pompey, so that he
could not run. Ho then faced his
pursuer and when ordered again to
surrender, declared that he "would die
nrsi. toneea was armeu witn two or
three pistols, and when the officer told
him that if he did not surrender in one
minute he would be shot, he started to
draw a pistol, saying, "the
man who gets the first shot
takes the meat," upon which the officer
fired, the contents of his piece lodging
10 tne breast ot me outlaw, bneeu
stood glaring at the officer for a mo
ment and then fell to the ground. The
officer, being alone, immediately re
turned to Goldsboro and reported the
matter, when a force was sent out to
bring the body in, and had not return
ed when our intormantlefton the train.
The latter was not a witness to any ot
the above narrated proceedings, but
got his information from a source
which he considered entirely reliable
and we have given the statement sub
stantially as it wa3 given to us. Further
information will probably be received
here during the day.
The Bis Fish.
Capt. S. W. Nobles, agent of New
Hanover county for the State Expo
sition, was engaged yesterday in pack
ing the two large fish contributed by
Messrs W. E. Davis & Son, for ship
ment to Raleigh. The larger of the
two (tarpin, or king shad) required a
box seven feet long by two and a halt
feet Aide, while the smaller fish was
accommodated in a box three feet long
and .two feet wide. Messrs Davis &
Son have been at considerable expense
in having these remarkable fish prepar
ed properly for the Exposition, and
take a jost and commemdable pride in
their efforts towards making the New
Hanover exhibit a credit and honor to
the State and especially to this section-
As the Wilmington Light Infantry
will go to Raleigh, to be there at the
opening ot the State Exposition, it is to
be hoped tbatjthey will be able to attend
with full ranks. It will be difficult for
some of the members to leave on ac
count of their business employments,
bat we trust that employers
whenever they can, without manifest
injury to their interests, will allow their
employes who are members of the
company to go. If this should be
done, the Infantry would appear at
Raleigh with full ranks and reflect
credit upon the city as well as upon the
State military organization.
