'Squire W J Hill lias a "Run'--Jbn
Hall, White, Tried for Cutting Hoc
Wednesday was a busy day in the
way of trials at 'fc'quire W J HillV
court. Threo casis were brought
before him, and in each case a bond
was required and the parties bound
over te courts
Th& first was the trial of John
Kail, who was arrested fur the cats
ting of Cicero Thompson on elec
tion night. Hall is a carpenter by
trade. . He Is about five feet high,
weighs about 140 pounds and wears
a light mustache. Evidence is very
-strong againBt Hall. He was bound
over to court in the sum of $100.
Case No. 2 was the trial of
white man by the name of Redwine
for carrying a concealed weapon and
firing a pistol at a woman. This
scrape took place on Mr. Milt Morris'
place election day.
A negro boy w .s up before th
'Squhe for cutting another boy, in
No. STYvnship, the day of election.
All of them gave bond and were re
leased until court week in January.
The Status of the Segro Voter
The Southport Ledger, in com
menting on the election, gives the
negro foter a straight blow in the
eye, and ba3 about the same opinion
of him as the Messenger, as expresss
cd in an edeiorial the day after the
election. The Ledger says :
"The negro vote has gone solid in
nearly every portion of North Caro
lina for any ticket that wa3 not
Democratic. Republican, Populi3t or
fusion were eagerly accepted and
voted, regardless of solicitation
biibes or threats from Democrats.
u The election of last Tuesday un
questionally places the negro in this
SiaUdBfon his own footing, and es
tojiaheV for him a status which
must irrevocably be his iorever. The
negro must rise or fall upen his
own merits, and instead of being
constantly watched over and pros
tected by the white people, he must
rely in the future upon h niself, and
in . measure of his weakness or
strength must be succeed or fail.
V?J8egrjidle6i of favora extended
:jhrtrtigh many years by the Tiemo"
cratic party in this State, the negro
has shown himself entirely opposed
to the part;, individually and col
lectively. He has shown himself ins
dependent, politically, and the same
favor should be snowu L;in in olLir
lines, thns making him stand square
ly upon his own merit, his own ef
fects to decide his present and
future welfare ana prosperity.
"There is no reason why the negro
6hould be independent in politics of
the Democratic party, and in his
; every day life be a constant receiver
of benefits from the members of the
party, which he persistently opposes
at the polls. .
The Democratic party of North
Carolina has always been the friend
and protector of the colored race, it
will always treat the race humanely,
but politically, the conditions exist
ing are der ided I y anomalous, and it
remains for the Democrats to realize
and act upon this matter in an open
and honest way.

K lih the Kopabllcaas in Organising
New York, Nov. 14. A specia'
to the Evening Pest from Baleigb,
N. C, says :
Marion Butler, president of the
National Farmers' Alliance, who is
stated to succeed Senator Ransom in
the United States Senate after March
4th text, ia reported as having
stated that he would vote with the
Republicans in the organization of
thenext Senate.. If-4hia is so, the
Republicans can count on both of
North Carolina's votes in the or-
ganization of - the Senate as the
other Senator to be elected in J&nu
ary by the Legislature to succeed
Jarvis will be a Republican.
Dr. J J Mott, exchairman of the
Republican State committee, seems
to be in the lead for that position. '
The official returns from Cabarrus
county give Mr W A Moody a maj
ority in that county of 180, and as
the majority against him in Stanly
county is only 108 he is elected as
Senator to represent Stanly and Ca
barrus by a total of 72. We n
say of Mr. Moody that during the
entire campaign he sustained bis
reputation as a clever gentleman. As
poeitively refused during the
campaign to commit himself on the
question of the United State Sena
tors, we Lope that he will finally re
fuse to vote for Butler, If he will
only do this many friends will stand
ready to welcome him back into the
Democratic party on his return
from Raleigh Stauly News.
These are wordsof Mr Jerome, Mr
Moody's adversary in the campaign.
A Man loses a K'atcb.
Friday afteri-oon two, of Concord's
joung sports stopped in iront or
Swirk's and, as customary found
something to bet on. One of the
young men 'had never teen the E'dam
cheese that is put up in little red
balls and when he asked his corns
panion what it was, he was told it
was cheese' The young man could
not be convinced by his . informant
that it was cheese, soiie wagered his
watch Dgaintst his partner's; and of
cousre, lost it.
It is said cf the man who was the
loser that he is a very stingy man,
and when he began crying over his
loss, bis watch was giyen back.

' Besides issuing several marriage
licenses and doing lots of other
business in tho IJeister of Djeds
office, t Register Patterson has been
working for five daya with his as
sistant, Mr. White, on the regietra

of the Southern Railway Couip&uy
to the Central Trust Company of
New York. This mortgage u the
biggest thing of ihia kind that has
ever struck Concord. It Diakns
ninety-eight pages and represents
millions and millions cf dollars.
It would take the strength of
several Sampson's and a couple j icks
to raise this mortgage and the
wreath of two or three Rothchilds to
pay it off. It's certainly a whopper!
