no one was injured. The road was en

In a committee report submitted
to the Grand Lodee of the order of
B'nai B'rith, in session last week at
Richmond, Va., occurs the following:
"The persecutions, outrages and in
dignities heaped upon the Israelites of
Russia have scarcely a parallel in the
history of the 'dark ages.' The hydra-
headed monster, fanaticism and bigot
ry, stalks abroad in the so-called liberal
German empire and seeks to devour the
Jew, for no other reason than that he
is becoming too powerful. We must
not lull ourselves to sleep with the fan
cied idea that in this enlightened age
and freest of countries we will be safe
from such attacks. Only by concerted
action, working hand and hand, can we
avert such a catastrophe."
A few days ago the Rev. Father
Flynn, of Morristown, N. J., sought in

the treatment of liquor dealers and
their victims. The Bishop's version of
this interview has just been made pub
lic The Bishop says that he instruct
ed Father Flynn that incorrigible
drunkards should be denied Christian
burial. In regard to persons who sell
liquor indiscriminately to drunkards
and others, contrary to the laws of the
Church and State, they too are to be
treated the same as incorrigible drunk
ards, and their bodies are not to go into
Bishop Elder, coadjutor of Arch

'Across the Continent," Mr. Oliver
Doud Byron's specialty piec, which
will be presented at the opera house
next Friday night, February 3d, is gen
erally considered one of tbe best plays
of its class, as it certainly is one of the
most successful, having completed the
decade of its unparalleled career. This
is to be explained by the fact that it is
on a large scale, requiring really the
services of two ordinary companies to
portray it; and also by the careful,
spirited acting Mr. Byron throws into
it, in the leading part of the Ferret

Destroying? the Wheat.
The cicadula exitiosa, or grasshopper,
is reported to have made its appear
ance in the county again, and to be do
ing considerable damage to the wheat
and oat crop. It will be remembered
that two yeas ago this insect ravaged
the wheatfields of this section and de
vastated acres of the growing crop in
this eounty and several others adjoin
ing, as well as in the upper portion of
So far this season the presence of the
destroyer is only noticeable in fields
where grass grew last summer. It is
said by some of the farmers that in
such places the insect has already de
stroyed portions of the crop, while no
trace of them can be found where the
ground was kept clear of grass last
year. The damage done to the crop in
this section two years ago was of - suf
ficient magnitude to engage the atten
tion of the department of agriculture
and to the end that a remedy might be
provided Prof. J. H. Comstock, entomol
ogist, visited Charlotte for the purpose
of investigating the matter, but so far
no adequate remedy has been suggest
ed to meet the difficulty.
Still in Doubt.
Hon. D. A. Jenkins, of Gaston, passed
through the city yesterday on his way
from Washington City, where he has
been for saveral weeks looking after
his interests in the contest now going
on at Washington over the collector-
ship of this internal revenue district
As to who will be the lucky man is still
a matter of doubt bet "Uncle Dave"
thinks the signs point to himself as the
future collector. The very sudden man
ner in which he "pied" the programme
of Mott and Cooper after he got fairly
woke up to business gives color to the
probability that if he don't get the of
fice himself he will succeed in downing
The cause for the delay in making
the appointment can only be conjec
tured, but it is more than likely that
the recent birth of an independent
movement in the State has caused a
halt until it can be ascertained what
can be done in making the appoint
ment to aid the party. . Or, it may be
at that the delay is due to the recent in
troduction of a resolution in Congress
looking to an investigation into the af
fairs of the office as administered by
tbe present incumbent. If this should
be the cause of the postponement and
the investigation proves the allega
tions set forth in the resolution to be
true, then the chances of Mott's favor
ite will diminish in proportion to the
damage done his "engineer" by the pro
The situation at present is about this :

Our Public Roadw.
To the Editor of The Observer:
The deplorable condition of our pub
lic roads is destroying the local com
merce of Charlotte during the winter
and early spring months, and is sub
jecting our country friends, whom ne
cessity compels to trade here, to endure
burdens and nardsnips unparalleled in
civilized countries. It would make
this communication too long to speak
of the roads in the county, so I will on
ly allude to those in Charlotte town
ship, as ail tne people or tne county are
interested in them. To say that the
roads are "bad," "worse than they ever
were" or "impassable," conveys but a
faint idea of their condition to those
who have not attempted to go over
Strangers visiting this city, wishing
to see the surrounding country, turn
back in disgust at our city limits, and
express astonishment that the culture
and progress of Charlotte has not im
pressed itseii upon tne country arouna
it. Charlotte township contains (ac
cording to the census) a larger country
population than any township in the
county; and only about twenty fami
lies of this population attend church,
not because they do not desire to at
tend, but because the condition of our
public roads renders it impossible for
them to attend. I would be glad if you
would interview the Rev. Dr. Mattoon,
who has spent much of hi3 life as a
missionary in the heathern lands of the
Orient and ask him, if in all his trav
els throucrh christian, semi-chnstian or
heathen lands, he has ever seen a peo
ple so blockaded against their places of
worsnip, as are tne country people or
this township. And also ask him if he
has ever seen a neoDle whose local
commerce is subjected to such an oner
ous tax as ours. I feel sure that he
will answer in the negative. Many of
our people are out of corn and forage,
and many more will De Derore tne ides
of March. Necessity compels them to
come here for it and they will not tot-
tret the fearful tax exacted upon that
corn or that forage Dy our miseraDie
public roads. The condition of our
public roads is due to our road law, as
evidenced Dy tne condition oi tne iseat
tie's ford road, where overseer William
Little, (noted for energy and good
iudement) expended the entire labor
provided Dy law. Any man wno win
ride in a vehicle irom tne city limits to
the township line on said road, will be
thoroughly convinced tnat our road
law is not onlv a farce and a sham, but
amounts to a crime against equity, jus
tice, progress ana civilization. And
when he covud recaii to mina tnat tne
same J-eeisiaiure mat passed tnis
road law passed a law against cruelty
to animals, he "would be disgusted to
think that the legislature ot a ereat
State should perpetrate a practical and
cruel ioke upon tne people, xne uem
ocratic party is soieiy responsiDie ior
this evil, and it is its duty to correct it.
