What North Carolina Has Come
The Chattanooga Times, in a
thoughtful article on the subject of
American elections, says:
"Georgia bad in 1890 nearly 28,-
000 more population than Tennes
see and now her population is much
rger than ours. And Georgia s
average vote in the three lagr Pres-
dential elections -1892, 1896 and
900 -was about 180,000, while Ten
nessee's average vote was 310,000.
Georgia's votfg for Governor are
01,000 in 1886, 105000 In 1890, and
soon, being merely nominal, per
functory registering of State bosses'
decrees We sav that a State, the

We say that tais is a deplorable
state of things, we say tbat it

such a condition to xist, and go

The Richmond Times, comment

Justice William T. Falreloth diwd
suddenly at his home la this city
tonight about ten o'clock. He had
taken a bath, and the attack came
on him just as he pat on hla night
robe preparatory to going to' bed.
He hastened to lie down upon the
ioange and his wife saw that his
condition was critical. The neigh j
bore and his physicaa were haitlly
summoned, but he was dead before!
they arrived. In fact he expired in !
a moment or two after reaching the
lounge. Hie neighbor came in
quickly, applied restoratives and
did wht they eoald, bat It was too
late for human assistance, and U
was toon apparent that life wa? ex
tinct. A correspondent of the News and
Observer t comments upon, Judge
Faircloth'a death as follows :
Thereto a deep regret In this
community at the sadden death of
the Ch ef Justice. He has lived
here many yf-ars and long been
I ten ti At d with its professional 11' e.
He waa one of the wealthiest men
in the place, a director In the Bank
of Wayne, interested In other en
terprises. and the owner of Ave
blocks of real estate In the city. He
was a consistent and leading mend
ber of the Baptist Church, and wae
a lberal contributor to all ltd Insti
tutions and enterprises. The ar
rangements for the funeral have
not yet been made.
Judge haircloth was born in
Greene county. Ho was a graduate
of Wke Forest College, of which
he was a trustee at the time of his
death. He volunteered in th Con
federate service and was Quarter
Master of the Second Nor h Caroli
na regiment when General Lee sur
rendered. After the war he settled
at (Joldsboro, where he always had
a large and lucrative practice. He
was a man of sound business judg
ment and his Investments made
him a rich man. The late Henry
F. Grainger, E-q , was his law part
ner, and he was afterwards a law
partner of Ex -Judge Wm. R. Allen,
In 1875 or 1876, Governor Brog
den appointed Judge Faircloth to a
position as Aes jciate Judge of the
Supreme Court. He held that p t
sltlon until the Democratic victory
in 1878 In 1881 he was the Rwpub
lican candidate for Lieutenant Gov
ernor but was defeated by Major
Unas. M. Stedman. In 1894 he was
the fusion candidate for Chief Jus
tice and was elected by a large ma
jority. His term began January
1st, 1895, and would have expired
Dec 31st, 1902.
.Judge Faircloth was a consistent
and life long Republican, the first
man of his party in every way in
Eastern North Carolina. He was
a man of personal integrity, and in
politics was the best and most re
spected man in the Republican par
ty. He was a safe and studious
lawyer, and had that deliberation
and res.arch that befit the judicial
To Help Life Savers.
The poorly-paid life-savers are
about to be looked after by Congress.
Representative Jones has introduced
a bill in Congress which provides
for increasing the efficiency of the
life-saving service. Under its pre
visions men becoming unfit for duty
after fifteen years are to be retired
on half pay. Another bill introduc
ed in Congress is one providing for
the payment of $100 per month to
keepers during the time they are
Having many life-savers here on
our coast, the people are naturally
glad these brave fellows are to be
more adequately provided for. At
present the suifmen are miserably
paid, have to purchase their own
uniforms and rough weather outfits,
and, if disabled or killed while dis
charging their hazardous duty, the
men receive no allowance nor their
widows a pension, and of all the
dangerous callings that fall to the
lot of man that of the life-saver is
in the front ranks.

Were .Not Democratic Counters.
The census report does not show
as large a population in Wilmington
and New Hanover county as some
think it should. The reason of it
is: First, Democratic poll holders
did not do the counting, and second,
people do not like to live where free
speech is prevented and a reign of
terror is Inaugurated every two years
and sometimes murder committed
in order to put some broken down
politician in a job with an Increased
salary. Go it boots. Get all the
