The school pride of the town itill remaini above par, and she ia prond of hey moral stand ing. Her young men and women are scattered all over the conntry, fllling the most honorable positions, and her boys and girls in several of the beat sehoola in the country. .She baa tent oat lawyers,doctors,preachers, teachers, mechanics and artiuna.

Mr George is doing ; more to rally the laboring uicn of the whole world than any other reformer. ; He is beentuing an iroporlanl clement! in the next Presidency, and may be! tho dtwiding irsue.

Till'.state assemhty was nnauimons in ilB support of this lucahure and | Stessrs. -1. 31. Broughlen. of lUI-t cigh: W. F. Rogers, of Oxford, and .John Holloway, of Wiliuhigton. were apjiointcd a couimittee ask its passage by the ]ogi^UturL■. Tho following resolution was nduptud early in the session: | Whereas, we regard tho passage, i by the Congress of tho IJiiilcd .'States, i of the education bill, known as the! Blair of very viul importance to | the laboring class of the aonth. Therefore, Resolved, That wo j address cummnnienliona to the Senators' and Reprcaenlativea from this ataie, asking them to urge the passage of said Blair bill. The following resolution was adopted: Usolvcd, While it is tho duly of all onr public scrvanla to care for the interest of all elus8i-8 of citiacna, yet it ia a well known fact that this is not generally tho case. Too often the interest of the poor and humble are iieglceted and often sacrificed to the promotion of the intcresta of the rich and powerful. Therefore, when wo Ece in public servants a friend and and protector, wc feel that wc sbonid recognize them aa our friends. Entertaining this view we feel that the thanks of this assembly arc due to Mr. ThiM. Sutton, representative from Cumberland county in the present legislature, for liis earnest advocacy of lliu amendments to the mechanics and laborers lien law recently pa.sscd by (but birdy: also to Mr. L. S. Overman for the po.sition be took in refin-noe to the bniiing out of con victs on the public roads, ns well as to the other members who Mipportcd these mcnsurcB. Resolutions of fraternal greetings were sent to the farmers’ mass conven tion as follows: "The North Carolina State assembly sends fraternal greetings to the farmcr.s' mass convention, now in Uiis itv. and bid: rcnioveJ if it is in the power of man to move it. Some say it cornea from the general failure of crops lost year. Why did crops fbil lost year, ao generally? There was too much fertilizer used. The seasons failed to suit the poisonous stuff. We bare a suggestion to make to fanners: Plant less ground, work it better; uae no fertilizcriplantbutlittlecotton, more corn, peas and potatoes and raise hogs enough to meat the family. In winter stay home and raakeeomposy fences,&c., and let town people occupy their own bonaea. If this is carried out wc think next winter there will be much lose desire to go to California or any place else, but all will be content aa they abouM be, to remain in the good Old North State, for there ia as good living here for good people an any place on the globe. We suppose money ia scarce among the laboring people jnal now, nnd the failure of crops has much to do with it. Now let the cauae of crops failures be removed and we will have plenty money and pro.vperity will gladden every heart If there is ao abundance of breadstuff and ment raised at home it must be ehesp and there cannot be very much suffering while all have plenty to eat and homes to shelter them. Cotton is king. He is a tyrant. He makes the poor man poorer and prosperity impossible. Too many farm laborers arc leaving the farms and going into the towns and cities. They suffer themselves and cause those who formerly did well, to share their wants. There is too much migrating from one county and Stale j y,„l speed in their’efforts to eh to another. Every time a poor man ; and better the condition of that great j breaks up and niovea. he slops u | band of t-arih’s toilers, the fiirniorH of poorer man than he atarted. Too Ballot Job Office, fur. (.'oHegi- and Trade Streats, Is iMiw proimroil to Hiriiisli csti- iriittos for nil elnsscs an'l uf lucb money ia spent in summer when wc hare a little, for things wc could do without. Fifty cents spent fur « watermelon in July would buy i half bushel of meal in December. A 'dollar spent for yellow ribbon in July would lielp pay for a pair of shoes when the first snow conics. Then the cxenrsion money—the whis ky money—if that was kept till winter how uiueli of this bard limes would be avoided. The leaders of the race should the ])ro|>er lime in the proper way advise uur people against the extrava gant expenditure of their money— but do at oor leaders do it? Arc not some of our preachers and leaders at the head uf cxcuraions and the like simply to put a few dollars in their own pockets? God will bold leaders to account for the suffering of these poor Ignorant people. The shepherd mnat guard the sheep from harm and send him to safe pastures when the wolf ia nigb. Times hard, but wo think it ia bronghl about by poor people wasting tbuir anbitsDce and the fanners not buUivat- ing the right crops in the right way. The deadlock in Indiana Iins b. en broken, and Tnrpie elected. The Lorrillard strike at Jersey City ia over. Over 1,000,000 children under fif teen years of age are earning their bread in the niines and ftcloriea of tbo rotted SUtes. A large nnwbor of motbera do the same. Society mutt' suffer from tbi^T There oen be no good cauae for ill- feeling exbting between the Kni^ta of r^abor and trade organisatkms. ^e rank and file of both are in hearty sympathy, and only embitions and evil-hearted men in their organixa-' tioDS can see or wbh differently.— OwuJut Truth. The laboring poor, and the deproas ed prodoerra of this eoantry, go regu larly to the polls at each election and, vote to eoniinua the franda that op-| them. Soeh daserve to tuffer, and the only regret ieihat their ' let question the follow ing was passed: The employment of convict labor in any capacity wbero it couics iulo competition with free labor, is unjutt to the honest workers, tends to increase crime, and should not be tolerated. That short time con victa should he used in bettering tho county roads, and no convict labor given to private corpo- rations without adequate rcmnneralion to the State." A resolution was also passed a.skiiig that tlic legislatue pass a law making it unlawful to offer for sale ouy prison- made goods in this state units they be plainly stamped “prison-made.” Also asking for a law that ten hours shall constitute a legal day's work, ntxl that employers shall give the same notice to an employee befure disc- charge. that they require from an employee before be shall quit their service, except fur incapacity or immoral conduct.
