A Forevt Fire Destruction of Rail
road and Cord Wood.
A destructive woods fire broke out at
a point about four miles northeast of
this city Sunday afternoon and spread
very rapidly, passing quickly over an
area from a mile to a mile and a half
wide, and doing considerable damage.
Comparatively few fences have been
burned, so far as could be heard, but
this is mainly due to the fact that there
are now very lew fences in tnat region.
The fire reached- a pile of cord wood on
the . North Carolina Railroad and
burned about a hundred Cords. The
flames from r the burning wood was
communicated to the track and a small
portion of it was burned, the rails
being so badly twisted that they cannot

reported to the agent, Mr. "Wilson, in

sections of hands were immediately put
to work to repair it. The occurrence,
however, delayed considerably the

TBe! fire created ia considerable ex
citement in the neighborhood, and the
inhabitants were fighting it until after
nightfall. The extent of the damage
cannot well be calculated yet.

To the Editor of The Observer:
Allow us through your valuable paper
to suggest the flame of Mr. F. A. Mc-
.Nnich..as a suitable; person to conter
rrinnfemal honors noon at the aDuroach
mg election in May. His record three
years as an alderman of our city, and
four years as acting magistrate, we
think sufficient to convince the voters
of Charlotte of his qualifications. With
his legal experience, energy, firmness
and practical ability, we venture to
assert that he would fill the office with
credit to himself and to the satisfaction
of his constituents. We opposed him
four years ago for mayor; we will now
cheerfully support him if he will con
sent to Decome a canuiaaie.

Nominations for the mayoralty being

the name of our old and worthy fellow-
citizen, Mr. J. K. btenhouse, who, if
elected, we are well assured, from his
ability and high integrity, will faith
fully discharge the duties pertaining to
the office, so as to render equal and ex
act justice to all, and subserve the nonor

Mr. So meat's Card to the Public.
To the Voters of the City of Charlotte;
Fellow CrnzSNgh-In this brief way I nave con
cluded to announce myself an Independent Candi
date for the office of mayor of the city of Charlotte,
at the approaching election In May. Thoroughly
Independent, I shall not be in the least influenced
by any ring, caucus, or convention ; I shall have no
friends to reward nor enemies to punish; I shall
not bribe nor purchase a vote, nor attempt In any
underhanded way to secure one; but I particularly
solicit the deliberate, Independent vote. I am in
favor of strict economy and low taxes. There Is no
politics in this election, therefore I shall run the
race to the end and take the risk, let the result be
what it may. In thus announcing myself, I think
it unnecessary to elaborate or make any further
statement of principles that may guide me; but
will truly say that I shall ever cultivate a genial,
brotherly spirit with those that I may become asso
ciated with; and permit me, in conclusion, to make
this pledge: That if honored with a majority of
your votes and consequent election, my best exer
tions shall be directed to a fair, honest and Im
partial discharge ol my duties.

In the bodily mechanism when the liver gets out of

the blood, Imperfect assimilation are certain to en

and remove their cause, by a course of Hosteler's

a disappearance of the pains beneath the ribs and
