Thk Shrift is getting out some formida
ble looking blanks. Those who are still
behind with their taxes will do well to set
tle at once to save costs and some trouble
besides. His time for indulgence has ex
pired, and the law now steps ia and de
mands a settlement. No excuse is valid.
Remember that by leaving the county you
do not free your obligation to pay taxes.
Under the new law, a man may be indicted
and imprisoned for the non-payment of his
taxes, and the officers of our county may
take a man who is due taxes ia another
county. This new law goes right in for
collecting taxes and there is no dodging.

For some reason, best known to the
board, the election of Policemen was
postponed for several weeks. It is re
ported that there are several colored ap
plicants clameriug for these - places.
While the colored vote entitled them to
recognition in the distribution of offices,
yet it wonld hardly work to have colored
policemen here. Owing to the prejudice
which already exists between the races
caused by several unfortunate circum
stances, needless to mention, there
wonld be endless trouble.
Dr. W. A. Wilborn, principal of the
Graded school has had a call to go Texas
and take charge of a large school.
Mr. J. F. Moser, also a teacher in our
graded school, has been offered a profess
orsbip in the large aud flourishing Col
lege, at Conover There is one thing
certain, and that is that the people of
Salisbury must have a school for the
education of the six or eight hundred
white children growing up within her
limits. Should all the teachers leave the
town, and the graded school building
stand idle, two things would follow.
First, those who are able to educate their
children would support private schools,
or send their children away, and second,
those who are not able to pay tnition in
a private school must grow up in igno
rance. It is a lamentable fact the white
people in the county are not so
diligent in the pursuit of knowledge,
through the medium of the school
room, as are the colored people. Tliese
few facts are food for thought for the
powers that be.
XST The uext best thing that the Com
missioners of Salisbury can do in respect
to street improvement, since the people
have refused to make a debt, will be to
begin now to consider the subject in the
light of all the facts attainable as to the
best possible method of proceeding under
the circumstances. Aud whilst we do
not assume to judge for them, we respect
fully suggest that our old methodaare
neither wise nor economical. It does not
pay to hire men to work with picks aud
shovels where it is possible te employ
scrapers aud horse power. It is not eco
nomical to hire men to break stone with
hammers where it is practicable to have
it done by crushers, as at the gold iniuea
in this vicinity. . These aud other details
are fitting subjects of inquiry when it
comes to be considered what can be done
on this important subject with the means
available for the purpose. Aud if we are
correctly informed this is no trifling sum
It ia possible to appropriate from $1,500
to $1,800 a year from the receipts per
anuum, after meeting other necessary ex
penses and paying off part of the town
debt. This ought to be sufficient to ac
complish a valuable, permanent improve
ment every year ; aud if judiciously man
aged will certainly do it ; and if prose
cuted with steadiness, would in a few
yearn accomplish all the good proposed
by a public debt. And this is the method
of proceeding which seems popular at this
particular time ; and oae of the arguments
in support of it is, that it avoids a grind
ing public debt.
We are aware that there are members
in the nevr Board who are practical on
read questions, and who are well aware
of the wastefulness of all merely tempo
rary repairs. But with not less than six
miles of road-ways and nearly double
that of pavements to put in readiness for
winter and keep in order, with clamoring
citizens in every part of the town for a
little work here and a little there, it is
feared that they will uot be able to ac
complish anything in the way of a per

will be a contiuous thoroughfare from

It will involve the building of a bridge

be just and proper, as it is a great hard
ship upon Mrs. Baker, who is a widow
lady, to keep up the bridge, especially as
the road will not be one of mere local or
sectional advantage, but one of absolute
public necessity as there is now a large
and growing trade at Third Creek station
and much of the produce of this section
passes over una roau, oesiues us oeiug a

By an Act of the last General Assem
bly, the town of Third Creek was char
tered. At the recent election, Dr. S. W.
Eaton was elected Mayor, with J. A. Ly
erly, R. M. Roseboro aud A. D. Moore as
Commissioners, and Rufus Lyerly as
Marshall, aud the place has regularly
aud formally assumed the dignity of a
Town. Taking the depot as a centre, the
village embraces an area ef of a mile
each way, thus making it li miles square
quite a couaiderable place.
The village, as we have before stated,
has four stores, iu which geueral mer
chandise is kept. The proprietors are,
Messrs. J. A. Lyerly, R. M. Roseboro,
Allison Bros., aud R. A. Burroughs.
The village embraces a population of
about 100, including white aud colored.
The two steam cotton gins at the place
uinned about 600 bales, which was all
shipped from that point during the last
season, lhe Allison Bros., have now iu
course of construction, a magnificent
dwelling, and many other signs of im
provement are to be seen.
The place enjoys as good health aa any
community, aud is located iu the very
heart af the most fertile lauds in Rowan .
embracing portions of both Scotch Irish
and Mt. Ulia. Having already a large
aud growing trade, it seems to us to be a
very inviting place for men of capital.
There was, a tew years since, a handle

good business, and such an establishment

except $1194.34, and bat for the tax re

out of debt. Again, from all that could
be gathered from the sources at hand, the
board of 1878 can not be more blamed for
the bad condition of tome of the roads

And, furthermore, an erroneous state-

The true intent of the writer, however,
was to show that if we could be fortunate
in securing the election of another such
Board, the debt of several thousand dol
lars which is upon the town might soon
be paid off without placing a heavier
burden of taxes on the people.

the rules of the Pope's letter to Cardinal
McCabe, and instructions sent to the
Bishops which were accepted at their

rights, tbey should at the same time seek
