What is a Democrat?
•'Democracy is a sentiment
not to be appalled, corrupted,
or compromised; it knows no
baseness; it cowers before no
danger; it oppresses no weak
ness. It is the sole conserva
tor of liberty, labor and proper
ty. It is the sentiment of equal
rights, of equal obligations—the
very spirit of liberty itself per
vading the land." —Bill Allen.
The Constitution, Act IX,
Section o, appropriates all fines
for violation of the criminal
laws of the State for establish
ing and maintaining free public
schools in the several counties—
whether the fines are for viola
tion of town ordinances, made
misdemeanors by Sec. 3820 of
the Code, or other criminal
statutes. Where such fines are
collected through the Mayor of
a town, by virtue of his author
ity as Justice of the Peace, they
are to be accounted for to the
Board of Education.
These fines cannot be used
for any other purpose whatso
ever. It is the duty of the
Board of Education to see to it
that these fines are faithfully
appropriated for maintaining
free public schools in the coun
ty. Magistrates, Clerk of Su
perior Court and other officers
in Harnett county into whoso
hands these fines have been
paid, be prepared to give an
account of your stewartsliip in

What Good Roads Do For a
Bad roads constitute the
greatest drawback to rural life,
and for the lack of good roads
the farmers suffer more than
any class. Those localities
where good roads have been
built are becoming richer, more
prosperous and more thickly
settled, while those which do
not possess these advantages in
transportation are either at a
standstill or are becoming poor
er and more sparsely settled. If
these conditions continue, fruit
ful farms may be abandoned
and rich lands go to waste.
Life on a farm often becomes,
as a result of "bottomless
roads," isolated and barren of
social enjoyment and pleasures,
and country people in some
communities suffer such great
disadvantage that ambition is
checked, energy weakened and
Good roads, like good streets,
make habitation along them
most desirable ; they economize
time, add force in transporta
tion of products, reduce wear
and tear on horses, vehicles and
harness, and enhance the mar
ket value of real estate. They
raise the value of farm land and
farm products and tend to beau
tify the country through which
they pass ; they faciliate rural
mail delivery and are a potent
aid to education, religion and
sociability. Charles Sumner
once said: ' 'The road and the
school master are the two most
important agents in advancing
The difference between good
and bad roads is often equivo
lent to the difference between
profit and loss. Good roads
have a money value to farmers
as well as a political and social
value, and leaving out conven
ience, comfort and social and
refined influences which good
roads always enhance, and look
ing at them only from the "al
mighty dollar" side, they are
found to pay handsome divi
dends each year.
People generally are beginiug
to realize that road building is
a public matter, and that the
best interests of agriculture and
the American people as a whole
demand the construction of
good roads, and that money
wisely expended for this pur
pose is sure to return.—Greens

IN MEMORY OF CAPTAIN MAR
SHAL VINSON PRINCE.
MR. EDITOR :
In the death of Captain Mar
shal V. Prince the county of
Harnett has lost one of its most
honorable and useful citizens,
and it is due his memory that
the public attention shall be
drawn to some of the events of
lii 3 long and honorable life and
to some of the public services he
rendered to his Country while
he was with us. This duty I
have taken upon myself, as I
knew him well, and to know
him was to love and respect
him, for he was verily a man
in whom there was no guile.
Capt. Prince was born July
2, 1832, and died on July 23,
1901, and hence was 70 years
and 21 days of age when he
was called to his reward. In
early life he had the benefit of
a good English education, hav
ing been a pupil uudei my
father Gen. A. D. McLean in
his school at Summerville in
this county. Capt. Prince's
father died when he was a mere
youth, and Gen. McLean was
appointed his guardian at the
request of his near relatives.
This education fitted him well
for the arduous and responsible
duties of his busy life, for from
early manhood he was the ad
viser of his neighbors in all
their business transactions, for
they had implicit confidence,
not only in his personal integ
rity but in his judgment and
business sagacity. After the
death of the Hon. George W.
Pfcgram the mantal of that man
of God fell upon the shoulders
of Capt. Prince, and most wor
thily did he wear it, for his
counsels were those of fence
and good will among men.
Captain Prince AY as married
in 1807 to Elizabeth Rollins.
There were born to them seven
children, five of whom survive
him—three sons and two daugh
ters —children whose lives and
characters bear the impress of
their early christian training,
for how true it is, that "as the
tree is bent, the tree is inclined."
Captain Prince held many
positions of honor and trust at
the hands of his confiding coun
trymen. Before the war when
quite a youug man he was
elected captain of a volunteer
militia company, and took
great pride in uniforming and
drilling his citizen soldiery.
When the War between the
States came on he was among
the brave and fearless sons of
the Old North State that went
forth to battle for the Cause of
the South. After the war and
when civil government was per
mitted to take the place of mili
tary rule Captain Prince was
elected Justice of the Peace
or his section of the county,
and served in this capacity al
most continuously till his death.
He was elected county com
missioner for several terms and
was chairman of the Board for
four years. In 1891 he was
elected to the House of Repre
sentatives from Harnett county,
and served with marked faith
fulness and efficiency. Indeed
in every position to which
he was called he was
always a conservative an d
faithful public servant. Our
county can poorly afford to lose
such a son.
When about thirty years of
age Captain Prince connected
himself with the Methodist
church and was one of its most
honored and trusted members.
He performed his duties as an
officer of the church with t.'ie
same unwavering fidelity that
characterized him in all the re
lations of life.
A good man is gone; let us
emulate his example, for he
was one of nature's noblemen ;
faithful to God, to Country and
"His life was and the elements
do mixed in liim that Nature might
And say to all the world. This was

Captured in Sampson.
A man named Sion Williford,
who has been living near Sa
vannah, Ga., for several years,
got into a difficulty out there,
in which he shot another man,
however the shot did not prove
fatal. Williford ran away from
Georgia and came to Sampson
several weeks ago. A few days
ago Williford was arrested and
placed in Clinton jail, from
there he was taken to Savannah
where he will be tried at the
November term of court for an
assault with an intent to kill.
Hon. D. H. McLean has been
employed to defend Williford

Rural Free Delivery First.
It is estimated that the sav
ing effected by withdrawing the
privilege of second class post
age rates from publications and
periodicals that are not legiti
mately eutitled to them will
amount to twenty million dol
lars a year. Upon the basis of
such saving a movement is on
; foot to reduce letter postage to
'one cent. Of course such a re
duction would be hailed with
I pleasure if it could be g'.ven af
ter furnishing necessary quick
mail facilities to all sections of
the country. But there ought
to be no reduction in letter post
age until the rural free delivery
is extended to take in every
possible neighborhood in the
United States. If twenty mill
ions is saved by the new regula
tions affecting second class mat
ter, that money ought to be ap
plied to extending the rural free
delivery. It is the vital need
of the times and the people in
town and country alike prefer
to have these routes honeycomb
the United States to any reduc
tion in letter postage. This is
certainly true in North Caroli
na which as yet has only eleven
routes when it ought to have
not less than five hundred to
serve the various communities
now having only the star route
