Walker it was referred to t.h t.ret
committee with power to act.
A similar bill, presented by Alder
man Nisbet in favor of Mrs. Neisler
was, on motion, ordered to be paid.
The question of allowing the swing
ing of sighs across the streets was
brought up, the mayor stating that
Messrs. E. D. Latta & Bro., whose
swinging sign was lately ordered to be
taken down, were willing to pay $50
Eer annum far the privilege of restor

Aldef man ? Dowd moved that chapter
2, section 10, of the city ordinances be
amended so as to provide that "it shall
not be lawful for any person to erect
or put any sign wood, metal, cloth or
ortherwise -across the sidewalks or
streets of Charlotte, or to continue to
keep up thcise already' erected, except'
upon" terms and for a - license to -be
agreed upon between the person and
the board of aldermen."
. On motion of Alderman Walker the
rules were suspended and the amend
ment (embraced in the above words
from "except" to "aldermen," inclusive
was . put upon and passed its several
readings. -!.,; r
Messrs.' Latta were then, upon ' mo
tion, granted a license for $50, to
suspend their former sign, for one year,
across Tryon street in front of their
place of business.
Qlt was explained that the $100 appro
propriated by the board was not suffi
cient by $75 to meet the expense of
publishing tjhe proceedings of the con
vention of Northern settlers held in
this city in January last, and that a
part of the expense was yet to be met,
by reason of the fact that the railroad
companies which had been expected to
bear a share, had failed to respond.
Alderman Dowd addressed the board,
suggesting that it make an appropria
tion sufficient to meet the balance due.
The community, he held, was morally
bound in the premises, and to pay the
residue was the only equitable course.
On motion of Alderman Sanders, an
order was made for the payment of the
money yet due on the books.
On motion, a committee consisting of
the mayor and Aldermen Sanders and
Mofre was appointed to confer with

The 20th of Day Orator.
Hon. Wm. M. Bobbins, ex-member of
Congress from the seventh district, re
sident in Statesville, has accepted the
invitation to deliver the annual address
on the occasion of the 20th of May cele
bration. The selection of Mr. Bobbins
is an excellent one in all respects. As
an eloquent and engaging speaker he
has few equals in the State, and will
add greatly to the interest of the occa
sion. It is hoped to induce other dis
tinguished speakers who may be present
on tne occasion to deliver addresses on
the night of the 20th.
It was thought yesterday and gener
ally reported throughout the day, not
withstanding the revocation of the call
for a convention at the court house last
night, that an effort would be made to
hold one there, on the subject of the
mayoralty, but by whom nobody seemed
to know. As a result of the report a
good many citizens came up-town, but
no one ventured to open the door or to
ring the bell announcing the meeting,
and in about an hour almost everybody
went home leaving the question of the
mayoralty in statu quo. This morning,
however, there is another shuffling of

Rlchanottd Ac aVaavrUle Railroad Stock
Rising and the Canoe Thereof.
The Danville News gives the follow
ing as the cause of the recent increase
in the price of Richmond & Danville R.
K. stock which it assures us has gone up
some three hundred per cent within the
last six months :
The road bed is in far better condition
now than ever before. Much f the
track has been laid with heavy rail, and
a large part of it steel.
The company has, in a great measure,
paid for this improvement out of its
net earnings ; at the same time its float
ing debt has been almost entirely ex
tinguished, and it is no longer a heavy
borrower at high rates of interest.
Some months ago, at a comparatively
small cost, it secured a controlling in
terest in the stock of the Charlotte,
Columbia & Augusta Railroad, which
rives it a continuous line from Rich-

branch, which for years was a loss, has
now become profitable. The connec
tions are generally working well and
satisfactorily. Instead of one passen
ger train a day, each way, or two at a
loss, it now runs two paying passenger
trains daily, each way, over its entire
throucrh connections; and whereas it
could hardly support two freight trains
each way daily, it now runs both ways,
from eight to ten loaded freight trains
daily, with comparatively slight addi
tional cost, with the prospect of a great
ly increased business, resulting from
the growing confidence that has now
fairly set in all over the country.
Another new and important feature
in the recent sales of this stock is, much
the larger portion of the sales have been
made to the agents and employes of
the road. Many of them are investing
all their surplus earnings in the stock
of the company.
it. i fixnftcted ir no unioreseen acci
dent occurs to prevent, that the next
annual report wul show a great change
over the one last December, and some
persons well acquainted with the offi
cers of the company think it can pay a
dividend pf at least fwo per cent in less
than two yearsnd an increasednmount
regularly thereafter. Should this be
true, the stock will doubtless go higher
than at any time since , the war. The
company through the temporary aid of

making any sacrifices and therefore now

The H. N. B, ana the Colombia Trip.
A letter was received by the Hornets'
Nest Riflemen yesterday from Capt
Hugh S. Thompson, representing the
Columbia military companies, inform
ing the H. N. R. that the time for the
unveiling of the Confederate monu
ment in that city had been postponed
from the 10th of May till the 13th, and
asking the company to change the time
of their visit in accordance therewith.
It was at first thought the postpone
ment would prevent the company from
going, for the reason that many of the
members are only able to be absent on
holidays (such as the 10th) but at a meet
ing last night it was decided to go any
way, with the expectation, however,
that the number of men would be con
siderably diminished by the postponement.

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
niirft tha deliberate. Independent vote. I am in
favor of strict economy and low taxes. There is no
polities bit Ms election, therefore I snail run the
