To the Editor of The Observer: V ' ,
Behold how good and how pleasant a
thing it is for brethren to dwell
together in unity. To insure harmony
and good feeling, and to remove": all
causes of strife and discontent, the
name of a citizen is presented; for
mayor, who , has the confidence arid
esteem of every clacs, and for whom all
can vote, with the assurance that his
election will redound to the interest of
the entire community. Allow me to
suggest the name of Wm. M. Shipp as
one in ! -whom centers every quality of
head and heart befitting the chief
magistrate of this growing city. L.

, N Convention.
To the Editor of the Observer:
In, view o the fact that the present
contest for the mayoralty is altogether
non-political, we have determined that
there is no necessity for the nomination
of a candidate in any formal manner,
and have therefore concluded, after
mature deliberation, that wisdom dic
tates the indefinite postponement L of
the convention called for Monday night.
Ag-ainait the Convention.
To the Editor of The Observer:
The communication in this morning's
issue of the Observer calling a con
vention Monday evening is entirely
uncalled for. There is not- the least
necessity for a convention as there are
no political questions whatever in
volved. The people wish to be free to
vote as they please. Let it never be
said again in Charlotte that monev
make the mayor.

A Colored Man' Solemn Pretest
To the Editor of The Observer:
The colored people do protest against
holding a convention and making a
party nomination. We have voted to
gether' regardless of party spirit for the
last several years, and we have pros
pered as a people and there exists now
a most harmonious and inendly feel
ing between the races. The call tor this
convention means nothing else than the
bringing out or a partisan spirit. A
colored man can have no voice in that
meeting and may justly feel that politi
cal prejudice is about to be inaugurated
citizens do not approve of this call for
aconvention, but that fit is gotten up
for the benefit of a few office-seekers.
In the name of all that is dear to us as
a people, united in one common interest
and controlled by tne kindest spirit to
eactrtther, enter outmost solemn
protest against any measure that will
separate us as a people, either in intent
or spirit! 4 - ; - .
We have felt for the last several years
that -officers of our city5-government
were our officers, as well as the repre
sentatives of the white race ; and we
have given them a cheerful support in
all measures of good, and now we are
about to witness what we went through
just after the war. , ;;
, We hope to see out prominent white
citizehs frown down "any such effort as
the convention to alienate us irom you.
This is our country and we want to live
in peace and quiet with you.
A COLORED MAN.
Unity and Harmony,
To the Editor of The Observer:
We are pleased at the suggestion of a
convention in vour issue of Yester
day, 'provided the citizens of the city
will attend en masse, and maKe it a
representative meeting, expressive of
the popular will. It is . manifest . that
so f ar no name presented for the office
of mayor meets witn general approval.
rne purpose oi tins convenuon as
understood is to have a fair expression
of opinion without regard to the inter
est of. any particular classor individual.
We want no class candidates nor class
legislation, but the greatest good to the
greatest number. Therefore, let every
good citizen, wno nas tne wenare oi tne
etty at nearc aixena, anu am m me

competent and well qualified to repre

There is no scarcity of men willing
to fill the office of mayor of Charlotte,
but applicants are not the proper judges

To the Voter of the Cfty of XThariotU:
Fellow Citizens In this brief way I have con
eluded to announce myself an Independent Candl-
date for the office of mayor of the city of Charlotte,
at the approaching election in May. Thoroughly
independent, I shatt not- be in the least Influenced
by any ring, caucus, or convention ; I shall have no
friends to reward nor enemies to punisht 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
polities 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 beeeme 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 of my dudes.

By the pangs of rheumatism, the Joints eventually
become grievously distortedV and sometimes as
sume an almost grotesQue deformity. To prevent
such results by a simple and agreeable means Is
certainly the part of wisdom. A tendency to rheu
matic ailments may be successfully combatted
with Hosteler's Stomach Bitters, a medicine with
the prestige of a long and successful career, of un
bounded popularity, and of emphatic professions
endorsement. It removes from the blood those in
flammatory impurities which pathologists assign
as the cause of rheumatism, and not only purifies
the life current, but enriches It, promoting vigor by
fertilizing its source. Digestion, the action of the
bowels and the secretion of the bile, are aided by
it, and it Impels the kidneys and bladder to a regu
lar and active performance, of their functions. It
Is besides a thoroughly reliable remedy for, and
means of preventing, periodic fevers. ;
