, A lot f gcod'-things which the
President hag said and done have
come under public observation
lately. - - His manner: of dedling
with the strike-has met the appro
bation 'and " won : theihinstinted
praise' ot all the law -respecting
people of the count ryr His whole
course in this connection was un
exceptionable, and saying this we
have in -mind his brief : reply to
the long protest of the Anarchist
Governor of Illinois against his
sending.Federal troops Hnto that
State ; to quell the ; riot then in
progress.; It was, in brief . We
will restore order ' and controvert
afterwards. : The language was
temperate and diplomatic but in
its last . analysis that is when it
meant. But, the strike aside, we
have in mind again, the recent
conversation between' the Presi
dent and Congressman Maddox, of
Georgia, as told of by the latter :
"Ji Well, Maddox," said the Presi
dent, ;how is j; everything down in
old Georgia ? I suppose they are
cussing me down there ?"
SVell," replied Maddox, "they
do not like your financial policy
"I know that, Maddox, ' said the
President, ''but they are not a bit
more anxious for silver than I am.
But it won't do now. I tell you
that unless I am badly mistaken
we will have the crowned heads of
Europe at our feet and asking for
onr terms before two years are
There is no intelligent American
citizen, who is himself honest, who
doeg not believe in his heart that
the President is an honest and sin
cere man. What right has any
one to doubt him when he says
the people of Georgia "are not a
bit more anxious for silver than he
is ?" And who is wise enough to
say that the President is "badly
mistaken" in his belief that "we
will have the crowned heads of
Europe at our feet and asking for
our teems before two vears are
But nothing recent is morechar
isteristic of the man than his re
ply to Col. W. C. Oates, of Ala
bama, the Democratic candidate
for Governor of his Scute, who
begged him to sign the Bland
seigniorage bill as a means of re
uniting the party. "He tcld me
very positively," said Col. Oates
"that he thought the party could
live on its principles instead of
being hired to do right."
It is impossible for anybody who
is not hopelessly bonded by pre
judice to keep from admiring a
man who takes such ground as
that, whether he agrees with him
It was gratifying to observe that
the Democrats of Huntersville
township, th.U county, in their pri
mary last Saturday, adopted a res
olution cordially endorsing the ad
nvnistratiou as to everything ex
cept its financial policy, even
though they: went on to express
their cordial disapprobation of
that. It is doubtful if, six months
ago, a resolution giving the Presi
dent any sort of endorsement could
have passed a Democratic primary
at Huntersville. The people of
North Carolina and of the South
generallp are coming around to
him. They are not nearly ready
to endorse his financial policy and
we have never been in favor of
crowcing them uou this point
though the Observer itself has en
dorsed it outspokenly except as to
the veto of the seigniorage bill
We are quite well aware that it is
not wise to crowd them with it yet,
but it is perfectly safe to say that
before the world is many years
older, it will be seen that the Pres
ident's policy has been altogether
a wiser one than many of our ood
people are yet willing to admit.
But silver or no silver, he is a
great old man. Uharlotte ub-

Statesvilde, July, 19 : Maggi
Simonton, a mulatto girl, 21 years
of age, was found drowned to-day
in the well on the premises of Mrs.
Amanda Caldwell, where she had
been employed, as a cook for quite
a while. Early yesterday morning
the girl, who stayed at her moth
er's house at night, arose earlier
than usual and started away. Her
mother remarked that it was too
early to go to work, but the girl
replied that she was dressed and
reaay to go so she might as well go
ahead. It is supposed she repaired
to Mrs. Caldwell's house and be
fore any one was Up quietly low
ered herself into the well by means
of the rope and was drowned; at
least the house girl, who com
menced her usual duties about the
house about 7 o'clock, found the
well bucket in the well, and draw
ing it up, found the water a slight
ly pinkish color, and reporting this
fact in the house it was decided
not to use the water until it could
be ascertained what colored it.
As the1 cook did not turn up as
usual she was sent'for to her moth
ers house, when it was learned
that she was not- there, but that
she had remarked to her mother
that she would kill herself if she
thought she would-be saved. She
made this statement because of a
letter she had received from her
sweetheart, a colored "man in Phil
adelphia, who wr6te her breaking
off their engagement.
No suspician was aroused as to
the fact of her being in the well
until the afternoon "of to-day. A9
the girl could hot he found, it was
decided to examine the well, and
Bill Newlaud, colored, went down
and found the girl's remains in
six feet of water. Ropes were fas
tened to her person, and on haul
ing her to th3 surface it was found
that she was dressed in a red cali
co dress, which had colored the
water. This was fortunate, for it
was a warning, and no water from
the well had been used after the
suicide occurred. j
Sheriff Wycoff and Deputy
Sheriff Leinster arrested Press
Salmons yesterday for beating his
wife. Press was picking black
berries and requested to be per

He was allowed to go home with

bring him back all right. On

A little child of Mr. Eli Fultz
was called away quite unexpected
ly last Sunday. We learn that in
the morning, while enjoying ap
parently good health, the child ac
companied the parents upon a vis

Davidson and Forsyth line joins
below the W. B. Stafford place.
While looking at some cattle in
the barn a cow, in sportive mood
or spirit of maliciousness, lumped
toward the little one which occa

The magistrates, the coa stables
and several "private" citizens of
Bethel township, Cabarrus county
have about much as they
can do to keep out of the way
of a woman who has blood in her
eye for the . whole crowd, - Her
name is Betsv Barbee. : Betsy
lives in a house belonging to Mr.
John Tally, and her time was out
some time ago, but she refused to
leave or give any good excuse for
staying. Mr. Tally applied to the
law for releif, taking out a warrant
of ejectment before 'Squire J. ;C
McEachern. When the trial came
on Mrs. Barbee swore she - could
not get justice before 'Squire Mc-
Eachren and took her case before
one of the associate justices of the
township court. It is thought she
will yet manage , to remove her
cise from the magistrate she went
to. . ' '
Shortly after the . trial was to
have been before 'Squire McEach-
ren, Mr. Tally and Mr. Dan Mes-
samer were in field near her home,
and Mrs. Barbee went out and
taking Tally by the nape of the
neck, led him to a neighboring
wood and tried to kick him into
the middle of next week. Then
she went back and ordered Mr.
Messiamer to leave. He told her
he did not know that she had any
thing to do with it and he would
go when he got ready. She re
plied: "Well, you had better get
ready by the time I get back from
the house." When she returned
to the field she had a long, old
fashioned gun when she meant to
use then and there. Of course Mr.
Messamer got away as quickly as
possible'.'' It is said that Consta-J
ble Cheney is a little pjubus about
going up to her ranch unless ; he
knew she was friendly with him,
for she might lav him out with a
load of buckshot She is a terror
of her own for that country.

services in the way of keeping th3

best wishes for success in the new
