"Golden Days" is the title of a juve
nile publication of much merit, as it is
the finest in every particular that we
have yet seen. The illustrations are
excellent, the print is bold and clear,
and it is in every way well suited to
meet the want which it is designed to
supply. The contents are excellent in
character, and while much appears to
amuse and please th0 iittle ones, much
useful information is imparted through
its pages. The publication is such as
we can commend to the public. James

Iuereate in Acreage.
A farmer of Mallard Crek township,
who last year planted one hundred
acres in cotton, tells u3 that for the
coming season he will increase his
acreage at least twenty-five acres, and
that, perhaps, he may plant as much as
sfivp.ntv-five acres in excess of his last
year's csop. He says there seems to be
no disposition among the farmers in
his neighborhood to abandon cotton
farming, or reduce the acreage, but on
the r.nntrarv many will plant more
largely than heretofore.

The (2 filler Slare Lut Night,
The 4 Galley Slave," a celebrated play,
and one which has had a most success
ful run in this country, was presented
last night by an unusually strong cast,
and one which gave satisfaction to the
audience. This, like many other popu
lar plays, has out-lived its attractive
ness, as every theatre-goer in the coun-1
try is familiar with the piece, and while
it may be presented for several years to
come, it may be said to have lost much
of its Donularitv in Charlotte. The au
dience last night was considerably short
of that which would have greeted some
thing of a different order, but those
present gave unqualified endorsement
to the manner in which the play was
Train Hobbery at UolUibarff.
Monday night, while the south bound
freight on the north road was waiting
on a side track at Holtsburg, a station
beyond Salisbury, for the mail and pas
senger train to pass, the conductor dis
covered a negro leaving the train with
a box, and moving off at a rate of speed
not warranted by ordinary circum
stances, and on investigation it was
found that four loaded cars had been
broken open after the train took the
side track, and a large quantity of
freight removed. Just what amount was
lost could not then be ascertained, but
two of the thieves were captured and
brought on as far as Salisbury, where
they were turned over to officers. The
great rapidity of the work and its al
most successful consummation, makes
it almost certain that the plans had
been well laid, and by experienced
thieves, as the discovery in time to pre
vent serious loss may be said to have
been merely accidental. So quiet were
their operations that their presence was
not noticed except by the conductor of
the train, as above noted. With a little
more experience this crowd would suc
ceed in robbing a freight train at full
About Whiskey Licenses.
It is understood that a number of ap
plications will be made to-day to the
board of county (commissioners by re
tail dealers in w'hiskey in the city for
county license by the board, for the
privilege of selling whiskey by retail.
When the question of prohibition was
before the people as an issue, nobody
had to be told where The Observer
was to be found, but having made the
fight we can see no good reason for con
tinuing the contest after the question
has been buried by an overwhelming
majority of nearly fifteen hundred votes
in the county. We are among those
who think that the war should be de
clared at an end, and that dealers should
not only be required, but encouraged to
obey the law.
While in other counties, and other
sections of the State there jmight have
been some fine spun theories about ob
jections to the prohibition bill submit
ted to the people in the recent election
in this county, there is no denying the
fact that we voted for whiskey pure
and simple. Two propositions were sub
mitted: One involving prohibition in
the Slate and the other applying only
to the county. Both were overwhelm
ingly buried in the county where we
have a large Democratic majority, and
the result, it seems to us, would make
it incumbent upon the county commis
sioners to issue license under such re
straints as the law imposes.
It is one of the curiosities of the law
if we may use the term that the re
fusal of the board of commissioners to
grant license does not prevent the re
tail of whiskey, because licensed by
both the city and the United States
i i i
revenue laws, saies are oemg inaue
daily, and without preventing the sale,
the county loses considerable levenue
which the law imposes, by the action of
the commissioners in refusing to grant
County A if aim.
The board of county commissioners
continued their session yesterday.
Much of the time of the session was
taken up in considering the question
of taxation of the real estate and bank
ing house of the Merchants' and Farm
ers' National Bank, and also the city
mills property and other real estate be
longing to the Traders' National Bank.
The tax includes what may have ac
crued for two years past, and the ques
tion of liability is one of considerable
importance. The banks, through coun
sel, contended that the shares of nation
al bank stock were taxed as personal
property, and were valued as other sol
vent credits ; that in the valuation or
these shares of stock no deduction was
made for real estate, and that to tax
the shares in the hands of the share
holders at the valuation of other sol
vent credits, without deducting the
value of the real estate, is double taxa
tion, the real estate being a part of the
capital stock. The question was dis
cussed at some length by counsellor
both sides, and also among members of
the board, after which it was decided
to postpone any definite action until to
dav. The other business or tne board con
sisted mainly m passing upon claims,
the more important of which were the
following: Rev. W. T. Waller, tor ser
vices for January as superintendent of
education. $48.00; Coroner Alexander,
for inquest on the body of Geo. W. Mil
ler. $3.00; the same for similar services
in the case of Harvey Phillips, $17.10;
R M. White, for provisions furnished
