Since the Southern Proleclioni, which eemos to have been eUrted to protect Ihq dcmocratio party agaiort .what Bcein* ita final doom in State, haa aaid w ihuch agaioat' Mr. Oanaday, wc will »ay in a few >orda why Mr Canaday ahonld be tmated in preference to Mr. Dockery. The Frotecliouitt chatgca Mr. Canaday with appointing demoorato to office and with being disloyal to the party. That ia the old cry of “stop thief. The Profcrfloniaf needs only to he read to show whether or not it w disloyal to the parly and tho history of the editor may be cnjairedtiifo to learn vtUat he has ever done for the party, and if the paper baa done more than abnae and speak disparagingly of republican leadcra. and if the editor has ever done more than hold a good paying office in the party given him hiB father’s name, and rwmved the honors of Ih'o party four years ago of election as delegate by the re«iueal of ' bis father, and bore hia father’s name, wo have yet to learn of it. The 1’ frrfjoiu'rt, in its coarse will do the rcpnblicani more horm and the deiuo- rrats more good than any two demo cratic paficrs could do by fighting straight in that party. Now why did Mr. Canaday appoint democrats to office? A few years ago while Sergcant-al- srms of the Semite, and the ropnbli- cans only one majority, j'appointmcnta were taken from the majority and the ofiiecs coming under the Sergeant-at- arms were divided among all the Senators, and democratic Senators as well as republicans could have their ■ friends appointed. When a Senator ; bad an office, Mr. Canaday could do ni) more than appoint the man nalL-d. The principal officers of the Senate arc elected by that body, it was a common Ihing for Mr. Cana day to appoint democrats to office, why • don’t Mr. Dockery name more than one, of the hundreds of wen he has given places since he has been influential man in tho departments and with the administrations Washington Mr. Canaday needs, no defense at our hands, lie is too well known this Stale and country. While mayor of Wilmington ho showed that he had the broadest shoulders and the biggest heart of any man that baa ever filled that office. His administration was a success and a living monument espe cially to the colored people. When he was made collector of that port, he went further and stood firmer by the colored man than any while man has ever done in North Carolina. Ilia chief deputy was a colored man and the only one ever holding a similar posi tion in the State. A rosjorlly of his employees were colored and hia in- spoetors, &c., were treated like men. When Mr. Canaday went to Wash ington bo did uol do aa many other men. He still held inflaeneo and did not forgelLis party and friendi.

The Golden Star Lodge held tival in Masonic hall last Wednesday and Thursday night. Vacation days will soon be here, and perhapb the little boys and girb will welcome them.

Easter was strictly observed at Zion. The chnrcb was handsomely deeorated with green shrubs and white tarlton. Flowers were very scarce. The pas tor preached one of his rich, flowing sennont. In the afternoon the Holy Sacrament was administered. The choir rendered several anthems which bad been prepared for the occasion. Mr. 0. C. Scnrloek spent Easter Sabbath in Maxton. Hois constantly travelling now in the interest of the Tetoperanco canse. A few wiieks ago fire broke out in store occupied by Mr. F. P. Willis- It was not long before the whole town was niuiDlnated. A good num ber of his goods were saved, though the real Iom u not known by many. Mr. A. W. Whitfield writes that ho ia highly plansad with his new moun tain home—Asheville. He u very much missed, especially on Oillispie street. The revival meetings at Zijui have closed, after a continuation of eight or ten weeks. About eighty persona were happily converted.
