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. He hat
given to colored men more places
Washington City than any man, 1
ing or dead- At the oloao of the r^
pabUoan adnioislTaUea. taoro colored
men held placea in Waohington credit
ed to Hr. Canaday than to all other
repoblicans from the State combinod.
lie has spent more money for tho party
than any man in the State,
friend to a friend and will stand
by him and fight for him when
Duniiisirj There is not a truer and

pastor, Rev. J. M. Hill, is working

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

the real Iom u not known by many.
Mr. A. W. Whitfield writes that ho

court. Dbtriet Attorney Bnsbeo
igned an agreesaent that they would
only be tried for three forgeries, abd
not for having in enetody atolan money.
Tot these men have stolen more money
than all the ninety-six of those Ne
groes in the State of North Carolina
together. The State Bank b com-
pletely gone, and on iU door ean be
seen the sad inscription, etoaed, A
stranger not cognisant of the Cact in
passing might think it was a national
or Stole holida^ and tho officials
ont on a bird hunt.
The editor of the OtUlook, W. B.
Hnntor, has tendered hu rc^natlon
to the manager of the OufiooA, which
has boon aeoepted, and he will no
longer be responsible for what appears
io its editorial columns.
The teachers are moking extensive
prcparalioDB for the reception of the
teachers from tho different pelts of the
State, who will attend the State
Teachers Association.
Politics are aontewbat on a boom in
the different wards of the city, and
each political loader is olosiog up his
columns for tho grand contest, which
II soon bo in our midst.
Wo notice in the last issne of the
Wilmington BidUlin a very severe
criticism on tho editor of the Cape Fear
Adpoeal' While thb may bo true
about hb dceeilfuloess (and your
humble servant would dare say not),
it seems that when wo see one of our
race possossiog such prinrijjr as pub
lished by the BulUiin, instead-of push
ing him down the hill, wc should en
deavor to elevate him. Remember the
Negro has already. 43,(>00,000 of An
glo-Saxons behind him, and against
him, cither politically or socially,
is proper to go to tho man—not write
him up In such a mannt.T Wi
sorry to sc^^ucb nobio mind
editor of the BuUeii'n possesses stoop
to notice such articles as often sppears

Tbo Charlotte Messxnobr is hailed
at the Capital as ouo of the greatest
Negro journals in the country. Smith
indeed, u a powerful editor—not only
editor, but a financier in

Wc hope Prof. E. K. Smith is satis
fied, having received that recognition
so iiincU desired by him. He has been

Baa left.ns with the flowera:
“No paling ot the cheek of bloom
Forewarned us of deeay;
No fhadow from the Silent I«nd

"The light o! her young life went down.
As rinks behind the hill

Clear, suddenly, and sUlI.
We miss her in tbo place of prayer.
And by the bcarth-fire'sqight;
We pause boride her door to bear
Once more hersweet •Oood-night.' ”
With what force and reality come
these lines of the poet!
How sbooking and yet how sugges

His dispensation has been among

Another gentle and sweet soul gone—
