V1 ro u u, i " hi ouW fur tb I ua erratic J ! ' til A UinliJuinbt. 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 i-nuiitieH. 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 the amendment. 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 agent. 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 lVkln. 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 dispatch: '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 Chinese. 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 North Carolina. TO REPEAL COIBEL LAW. KVuiuck IeaocraL AptMOlwl at 'It rlnlnil DUboMrt, or 1 tr Own elec tion 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. ' F..cV i j and see before congratulating them- j 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 AWARDS TO NORTH CAROLINA.

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. BURIEO IN A TIN BOX. Kiirlune Worth STA.OOO Wan Iur l in Itirharrt Wallar-', Vrl. Vmv York Sun 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 lace expects to find the owner of the property. Will Xot Support llrvaii and Stevenson. We see the Populist Committee, on Monday at Chicago, in violation of the sentiment of the Convention, endorsed Stevenson for Vice Presi dent. Some of the Populists in the west may vote for Bryan and Stevenson, but, unless we are deceived in the grit of which the Populists of this State Is made, they will not vote that ticket. They can't do it without voting with and for men in this State, who in the recent campaign, sanctioned assaults upon Populists with arm ed red shirts, drunken roughs, rot ten eggs, threats of murder, gener al suppression of free speeeh and all kinds of lawlessness and anar chy.
