Tuesday night Mr.John Pritchard,
candidate for Lieutenant Governor,
and Mr. Lockey, candidate for Con
gressional honors, spoke to an
audience in the court house, giving
their views on political matters and
trying to tell some good things the
Republicans have done. As speeches
of misrepresentation and wild
truth-absent assertions, they were
No. 1 successes; as a fair, honest,
and intelligent discussion of the
political issue of the day, they were
No. 1 fizzles. Piitchard kuows just
about as much about the Tariff as a
two year o'd child; his "exposin
case for argemiut," and his beauti
ful words about the "good wim
ming" of the country are sampk'9 of
his phrases, which indicate the fact
that he is not the man to preside
over any law-making body of any
State, aud perchance become the
Governor of the State.
Lockey's effort was tso much of an
effort to be noticed. Indeed he said
nothing an empty noise. Poor
men! God pity you.
The colored and only a few
endorsed what they said by shouts
of "You're right."

Foil's pitching was splendid. Ellis,
as pitcher for the Salisbury club,
won encomiums of praise, even from
his competitors, and Meriddth behind-the
bat made a splendid record.
Keistler made two fine catche3 in
short stop, and Deaton played a fine
pick-up in right short stop. II. C.

played "well,, but the-splendid work
of the first baseman, Bobbins, and
the battery of Armfield and Morris
"got there all the same." Caldwell
scored a stolen run, Foil and Jones
made two nice catches in the field:
Utley made a fine catch in left field,
and Deuton came, hi . for, honors for
fr dctable play. .

fought the battles of the South on
the floor of the United States Senate
when to do so required not only the
utmost valor but the utmost skill and
he has borne himself away in the
eyes of thejeountry so as to reject the
highest honor on the State he repre
sents. He has ever been alive, more
over, to the material welfare of North
Carolina and has acquired at the Fed
.eral capital by his great talents and
ability an influence second to that of
no Senator from this section. He is
the representative of the State on the
National Democratic Committee and
is otherwise hisrh in the councils of
the Democratic party. He is, in-
deed, a man worthy of the distin
guished consideration in which he is
held by the people of this State.
His rvputatiou for eloquence and
power in debate is co-ex tensive
with the couutry at large, and
here at home he is admired for
his abilty as a public speaker as it
has been the privilege of few men to
be admired in the history of the

It almost startles me, and puts
me to thinking? What lias
brought such rapid grov.th.
I remembered 20 months aun
I was almost penniless, out f
employment, and could n,r
find any. Everything in Con
cord was said to be '-overdone."
For ten mths I
looked for something to turn
up ; then it was bitterer than
gall, now it ifi- sweets- than
honey. A great lesson. Wait
not for something to turn up,
but have the backbone to turn
it up yourself. Although I
had but $17.47 left, I resolved
to make one desperate plunuv;

toil drove me from the '-rat-trap"
to a house much larger,,
about ;J0x2() feet, where I ex
pected to remain if I could af
ford to pay the rent, which
only lacked ()f sizing1 nn"
stock at that time:. Afer four
months I would have moved
again had I not rented for PJ
months. Determined to have
