IHt NEGROES' SOLID VOTE.
lUUNlll) SOLIDLY FOR MR. AYCOCK

V. .11 Opliblitt.il.
ur democratic friends raided a
K it fu.-f la-it campaign about the
i yr. voting Id one solid maw.
I h. y fiUo argued that when the
it r voted ho destroyed a "white
ia n V vote who voted on "the oth
n l ie. ThN they argued In all so
t i a? wan an encroachment upon
tti. liberties of the people and call
. I fur immediate action.
Now sine the election, if our
l. iniM-ratio friends will lock back
;t u loturus of the election made
them they will tlud that they
ii i m committed the greatest "out
i.i.f" along this lino that ha ever
i . . n committed In North Carolina,
' .r the n turns show that at no time
the. negro voted ho "solidly" as
ti. did In the last election. They
vs .-I e not content to "eveuiy divide"
th" vote but they made him vote
practically in ono "solid mass" the
I t'!!ucratic ticket and to dlsfran
t iiin himself. They did this or
f.ilrtely counted the voto. Let us
review their returns of the nigro
Nmw Hanover county with .'5,000
iu gro voters returned two votes as
nwt against the amendment.
Kobeson with 2 43s colored tax
payers returned 7l votos against
tlieamendment, t,Uf for it.
fcdgecombe, with 2,)."7 negro polls
and 1,'4'2 whites, gave 371 as the
vote against the amendment and
:,7S1 for It.
Halifax, with 2,G.s." negro polls
utid 1 , ;7 whites, returned 8'J'J an
tt amendment votes, and for
Hertford, with 1,0:12 negroes and
sj whites gave 37 against the
amendment and 1,107 for it.
Northampton, l,r.jO negroes, 1,-
.",:,; whites, counted 1,005 against
aud 2,4W) for the amendment.
Vance, with l.ltm negroes, 1,(n'S
whites gave 013 against and 1,313
for the amendment.
Scotland with an excess of nesrro
polls, returned 7 votes against and
l.St:i for the amendment, almost
rivaling New Hanover.
liertle.with l,f3i negroes, 1,508
whites, turned In 914 votes against
and 2,0 iy for the amendment.
( raven, with 1,811 negroes, 1,5:15
whites gave 055 against and 2,002
for the amendment.
Then whose yote was "destroy.
d" by,'the negroeb vote! Was It
not a case of the negroes vote of
the East destroying the vote of the
white people of the West If we are
permitted to speak of the negroes'
vote as nothing but a destroying
The Eighth Congressional Dis
trict in which all of the counties
have a large majority of whites
there is according to their returns
l,3f! against the amendment. It
will also be noted that In this dis
trict Forsyth county, in which
there aro more negroes than any
other countv In the district, went
Democratic by 210; and in this
county there was a large majority
against the amendment in the
country, but the city of Winston
Salem with her large negro popula
tion came up with a majority of
about 1,100 for the amendment and
reversed the white people's major
ity In the country.
Noeuea of Desolation 1 it City of
A recent account of the conditions
prevailing in Pekin, received by mail
at Shanghai and cabled to London
aya the capital city of China presents
i lie appearance of absolute desolation.
W'e quote the following extract from
'The destruction is simply appalling.
Legation street is unrecognizable. All
the houses of the foreigners have eith
er been burned, riddled by shell or
Mown up. Hundreds or acres covered
ny the natives' houses have been burn
ed over. There has been most wanton
destruction of property. Buildings, not
horned, were pulled down for mere
pleasure. The top of the city wall is
Hrewnwith barricades, while under
ground shelters are littered with dis
carded arms and uniforms of fleeing
Evidence was discovered that an at
tempt to undermine the American le
gation was made by sinking a shaft
irom the top of the wall. Fires are
turning ever j where. Several build
ings within the imperial city wm set
-n tire by the allies' shells."
PERISHED ONJHE SCAFFOLD.
' Jones, the Negro Murderer Paid
the Penalty for Ilia Crime.
Tom Jones, the murderer of Ella
Jones and her five children, was
bung In Raleigh last Friday morn
ing by Sheriff M. WaPage. The ne
gro met hii fate calmly, ilia nerves
did not fall him. He walked to the
scaffold with a firm step. The ex
cution was swiftly done, and he
died quickly. His crime was per
haps the most brutal and inhuman
that hag ever been perpetrated ln
TO REPEAL COIBEL LAW.

Haiti more New.
After dragging the atate through
a year of almost unparalleled bit
ternes and disorder, the Dorno
cr,tU of Kentucky have decided, It
1- said, to repeal the infamous Goo
b. 1-election law. Political exlgen-cl-
s are na d to b responsible for
t hit determination. Ir the Goebel
election law remains on the statute
books, It will probably disgust a
ulliclent number of Democrats to
make the success of the party in
November extremely doubtful. The
Prty is split into factions, and there
can bo no peace until the off. naive
m.asure becomes a thing of histo
ry. It is to bt hoped that tbeblood
shrd and disgrace of the past year
ba brought the Democrats of Ken
tucky to a realization of their re
sponslbl itles. The time is passing
when any party in this country
can, with impunity sirbvert the
will of the vo.ers of a state or a
municijallty. The Goebel law of
Kentucky turned a usually safe
iH.mocratlc State into a state with
a Uxpubhcan majorl y. It was on
ly the weakness and folly of.Gov.
Taylor that prevented Goebel Dem
ocracy being swept oat of existence
by th. Indignation of the people of
the State. Now it is said that the
Democrats of Kentucky are going
to make an election law so just that j
the Itepubllcan party will lose its i
campaign issue. The friends ot i
fn I r ularHona will nrnfoii nml.

seives on tnecnange or neart or the
Kentucky Democratic machine
Still, if the machine, even for self
preservation, gives the state an
election law under which the peo
ple of Kentucky are permitted to
express their will at the polls, h
will make some amends for the dis
graceful history of the past year

Mr. L. L. Bland, of No. 4j5, Camp
b. II street, lost his mind Saturday
by becoming exhausted from beat,
and his condition Is still unchanged.
Dr. Andrew B. Harrl was called In
to see Mr. Bland Maturday night as
soon as his condition was ascer
tained, and after examination decl
d. i that it waa exhaustion that
caused him to be demented, but
thought his mind would bo restored
in a few days.
The circumstances In the case
were very sad, and at the same time
very peculiar. . Saturday morning
Mr. Bland and his wife went to
NV rightsvllle on the train to visit
Mrs. Bland s relatives. Soon aficr
their arrival there it was noticed!
that M t. Bland was acting In a very
peculiar manner, but no especial
attention was paid to him. Be ex-,
pressed a strong desire to taxe the
mid-day train and return to the
city. It seems that before he ar
rived at the station his mind was
completely gone, and he wandered,
along the shell road and finally
reached the city on foot. Without
beiug noticed or given any assist
ance he reached home at 8 o'clock
that night, but his mind was so de
ranged that be was not conscious
of biag at home.
He attempted to leave soon after
aud when asked his reasons for do
ing so, he replied that his wife wa
lost and he wanted to look for her.
He Is not at all dangerous nnd oc
casionally shows some intelligence.

Richard T. Wallace, a real estate
agent, found an old tin box about
a month ago behind his office. Some
excavating had been done there to
move the building back for the
purpose of widening the street to
make room for a trolley road.
. The box was battered and showed
that it had been in the earth for a
long period. He put it away in his
safe and tried to find its owner, but
was unsuccessful. He examined Its
contents the other day and found a
batch ( f United States government
bonds, which are said to be worth
7.r,0iK) There wore also several
commodore's buttons of the New
York Yacht Club and a number of
documents dated 1&"9. Mr. Wal
