Saturday to abQut 1200 people; Capt.
Kitchen made the same speech he
' piade in tha campaign two years ago,

administration. If Capt. Kitchen's
yiews have not undergone any
.change, and they have not judging
from his speech, we fail to see any
leaon why he should leave the Dem-
pcratic party. , The principles of
Pemocracy have certainly irndergone
uo change, though they may have
Jbeen perverted by individuals but
hey will stand after these individu
al and Kitchen have passed from
the stage of action. There is no
'reason why any man should leave
the party in tljis State who believes,
in Df mocratie principals. We can

and no one can point out wherein
N,orth Carolina delegation at
Yashington have departed from

when flip was acCoshd ly a hand

manner and musical yoice. In a few
moments he learned from her that
she had lost her position in the treas

get something, to jdo. She learned
from him at the sarnie time that he
was a member, of the house of repre
sentatives, a f fiend pf Secretary Car

Europe, too, jist now-is the suicide

Sperenski, a member of one of the
most famous families of Russiaand
a.e of the highest officers of the
ministry of the interior. A year ago
one of the Catholic! churches in the
province of Kownojwas condemned,
and the congregation ordered to leave
it. The people declined to do so, and
were finally driven mt of the church
by soldiers, in obedienpe to the or
ders of Mr. Orschewski, formerly
chief of'the secrel police. The Pope,
hearing of the putrage, protested to
the Czar, who ordered a report of the
occurrence. Prince ! Kantakuzene
was induced to make ja. false report,
it is said, and, this being discovered,
the Emperor summoned him to his
presence. TheiPriiicej was so over

Facts About Marriage. 3

- It will surpriseniMny)er.ons to
know that there are nrjre males than
females in.the total population of
this country. The exact figures in
1890 vveref 32,067,880 males and
x,Contrary to another popular im
pression, it appears, too, that married
persons form a larger percentage of
the total population of this country
than they do of European conntnes.
There are more man ied people, too,
in our large cities than in our farm
ing districts, relatively to the whole
number of their inhabitants,
i Facts of interest to young people
contemplating matrimony are that
Brooklyn, Philadelphia and Cleve
land are the American cities where
most marrying is done; presumably,
the conditions there are more favorably-to'
the maintenance of homes
than in San Franci.-co and Boston,
which are peopled by fewer married
folks and more single ones than any
other cities in the union.
Ireland and Scotland show the
largest number of bachelors and
spinsters and the smallest number Of
husbands aucj wives of all countries
furnishing statistics. Who would
have thought that to be the case ?
It will shatter another generally at
cepted opinio:) to be told by Colonel
Wright, that the total number of di
vorced persons in this country is
very small amounting to only about
one-third of one per cent of the total
adult population. Another analysis
shows that there was but one divorc
ed person to every 185 married per
sons living in the United States in
Colonel Wright's article affords a
great variety of other interesting in
formation, and as a study of the con
jtigal conditions of this republic," it is
reassuring on many vital points.
Marriage is evidently not a failure
in America. And pessimistic views
of divorce as practiced in our differ
ent Stales are utt borne out by the
evidence of the census.

has probably been more unfavorable
in this district than in other portions
of the State. Frost occurred on May

from Ashe to Cherokee counties.
The cool nights have injured cotton
and killed some, besides keeping all
crops from growing very much. Corn
is being yellowed, which is probably
caused more by the prevailing dry

I am correctly reported to this e ex

I am, I would lead a mob to lynch

ravished any woman, white or black.

as to the sacred obligations the white
people of the South are undef are set
forth in full 1 am puTrecord as
having asked fhe Legislature to
give pie power to remove any sheriff
who allowed a prisoner to be lynch
ed while in his custody.
"I have promptly ordared out the
militia to protect prisoners when
ever called on by sheriffs. I am op
posed to lynch law for anything but
rapp. That is a crime which, in my
opinion, places any man beyond the
pale of the law, and puts him below
the brutes. The Southern people
are not blameless in dealing with the
question of lynching, but all our
lynchings are not of negroes, and
but for the fact that fvery outbreak
of the kind is used as a text by Rer
publicaii newspapers to slander and
misrepresent our people, the? would
excite no more comment than else
where in the United States. I thiuk
