The editor of the "iVfetu NorUi
says that while he does 'not
pretend bat that there may be some
reason for dissatisfaction in Wake
county" . yet that there has
been too much temper displayed
that "in famous tactics"
have been resorted; to by the Era
V for the purpose; of making Lee
and his "supporters odious to the
public." ' .
Nrri Brother Ball, J u your ef
forts for the harmony of the party
in Wake we are willing to nubmit
to your lecture on the exhibition of
temper but really you must prac

In the Era to show " tamper' on
one side, it is equally wrong for
you, in your character of peace
maker, which we duly appreciate,
to jshow temper ami use harsh
words, on the other side. :Yu ap

not he as n general charged with the
success of the cause, have been jus

The Era did neither more nor less
than this, and has no apologies to
make for its course.
Which was most "infamous,"
the writing of the letter or ilswA
lication? One was a secret threat
against the life of the party in Wake,
the other was .an open warning
against its destruction. One was
an effort aimed at the life of the
party, the other was an effort to
preserve its existence.
Now, Brother Rail, if you desire
that your efforts as a peace-maker
shall be blessed with success, wn
suggest in all kindness that you
drop in future the use of such w rds
as " infamous " as applied to -en

A few 'days ago there was nub

headed "Jim Headm." The writer
stated that of "the very large and
numerous 'Headen family in Chat

call him, would not get a vote. The
writer of this article knows more
of the Headen family than does
any Raleigh ed iter. There are?
voters,, no more and no less, of the
white" Headen family including
James H. Headen himself. Of the
remaining five, he will eret three.
and probably more. 1 There are
twenty-.seven voters in the colored
Headen fa 1 n i ly of t h i s n u m ber.
James II. Headen will get tioenlv-
seven votes. Therefore, out of "the
numerous Headen family in Chat
ham." Hon. James H. Headen -will
get thirty out of thirty-two. I would
suggest to the. gentleman in Ral
