Our RIqMs St Stake.
It is very strange why some of
our colored voters will stand on the
streets and bold a great contest
among themselves as to wbo they
must support in the approaching
election, a Liberal candidate or a
straightout Democratic candidate.
Some hold that certain Democrats
are their pereonal friends, bnt gon-
tlomen, as far as personal friendship
is concerned, some of onr best per
sonal friends are our political ene
mies, and so we must lay down per
sonal friendship and vote for those
wbo have promised to give ns onr
rights and siifiVage in this county
and throughout the State of North
Carolina, if elected ; and if this is
the question, gentlemen, all colored
men who want their rights as wore
guaranteed them by the Constitu
tion of the United Stotes, can get
them by electing the ticket put out
by the Liberals and endorsed by
the Republican Convention on the
16th of September. Wo have long
been kept out of those rights by
Bourbon Democrats wbo have
cheated us out of our rights and
now come to us and want to advise
us wbo to vote for, saying there is
no difference botwcod the Liberal
Democrats and the straightout old
Bourbon Domocrata There is ibis
difference : tbe Liberals are men

the exerdssl addresses were made
by vimtors, among whom were Mr.
J. C. McCall and the scribe, urging
the importance of education as the
hope of our people. History shows
that two things will perpetuate a
people and cause them to beremero-
bored, wisdom and power. Tbe
time baa come when wo, as people,
should run and read with thought
ful eye and brow. Enough will be
said in praise of Mr. Simpeon’
work when you understand that by
a unanimous vote on the part of
patrons he was called again to teach
the same school at its opening.
Those demonstrations show that
every mind is an element of power.
Then how important to cultivate
them. One could but feel anima
ted while listening to what the
children bad to say, and these ox-
ercieee also serve to show tbe capa
bilities of rude material when pol
ished. Dee Cartes was acenstomed
to say that "there is uothing fn tbe
Universe great but man, and there
is nothing in man great bu^ mind,"
but later Sir William Hamilton con
densed and improved tbe same by
saying, "There is nothing in the
Universe great bnt mind.” Hence
the importance of greater exertion,
with reference to education. Near
tbe school under connidoration there
was another pleasing feature, tbe
sight of the mountains, which one
could view from south to north
far as sight would extend. The
people of this piedmont section
in tolerable circumstances and to
extent anxious to become edu
cated. Yours truly.
