David Wiggs, the burglar, is in a
weaving way. The j evidence ac
cumulates against him daily. This
morning Hugh Murphy, a well
known colored carpenter who lives
n on McRae street, between Chestnut
and Mulberry, was taken at his re
quest to the jail, where he positive
ly identified Wiggs as the man. who
had entered his house burglariously
few months ago. The evidence
not only accumulates, but it extends
and it is likely that others will soon
be implicated. The belief is that
there is a regular band of burglars
operating here, and that there are
"fences" who receive and dispose oi
the plunder. The recovered arti
cles' are yet at the , City Hall. The
gold cross has been claimed by
Annie Whitehead, colored, who says
that she found it some months ago
on the street. There is hair in the
cross and it must have been a treas
ured reiic with some one. It is
strange that the original owner does
not put in an appearance. The re
port' that Mr. Geo. S. Willis had
identified some of the articles as
stolen from his house is incorrect.

Revenue Collector for this district
for some years following the close

take charge of a farm in Halifax;
county, there was some pretty plain;
talk as to his indebtedness to the
Government. He has always been
a staunch Republican and has al4
ways been alive to the fact that the
white Republicans in th South!
were destined to fill all the offices
in the gift of aRepublicanPresidentJ
We clip the following, relative to
him, from the Chatham Record; " j
The money that was sent to this
State last fall by the Republican
National Committee to buy and
bribe voters seems to have gotten
into trouble one of the leadinxr Re
publicans to whom it was sent. Geni
L. G. Estes, a carpet bag radical
whofigured Conspiculously in the
Reconstruction days, was appointed
last March a Superintendent of
Post Office Inspectors a lucrative
and important office but he has
recently been dismissed and turned
"out to.grass.' And the cause of
his dismissal is alleged to be this;
Senator Quay, the chairman of the
National Republican committee
sent $30,000 to this State last fall to
be distributed by the most skilfull
party workers, and to Gen. Estes
was given the sum of $5,000 to be
used for the party's benefit. It is
said that Quay was dissatisfied with
Estes's expenditure of the $5,000 en-
trusted to him and the latter would
not render any account of how he
spent it. This made Quay angry,!
and through his influence Estes has
been dismissed from office. Thus
one more of the Republican secrets
of the last campaign is divulged,
and proofs are accumulating of the
efforts made by the Repulicans to
carry North Carolina with the cor
rupting use of money.

social circle that must long remain unfilled.
The writer enjoyed the inestimable privilege
of possessing her sincere and joyous friendship
for a number of years. The grief-stricken
husband and two motherless little boys left in
the beautiful, once happy, but now desolate
home, are the recipients of all possible sym
pathy and attention from friends, hoping to
sooth their anguish; but time alone, the slow
healer of wounded hearts, can effect assuage
ment, or ultimately cure. On of the fairest
and sweetest ephemeral flowers of earth has
just been uprooted, and transplanted in a soil
more congenial to eternal, ever-blooming
purity ana loveliness. Take her for all in all,
we ne'er shall look upon her like again.
