The ireiitlciiien w ho opposed the Watts law fogged almost with tears that legislature do not discriminate in favor of the town againt the country by depriving the latter of the irlnrlous privilege ot miming whiskey and giving that privilege to the former. It turns out mat there are live hundred and thirty Mills iu North Carolina, and of this number hardly thirty, we dare say, are in the towns. And so It watt discrimination with a vengeance. All good men, however, will re joice in Mich discrimination. It means that from four' to live hun dred of these infamous dens will leave the State or go out of busi ' lies, for the average town has too iiiauv level headed business men in it to nllow a filthy whiskey still to come in and poison its atmosphere. If a man is too blind to so sec that a "hell kettle" (as preacher Little calls the distillery) is an nnmitti euted curse, the strong arm ought to come in and protect him from himself. This particular feature of the Watts law ia praise worthy and we bone it will be rigidly eu forced. We are delighted for once thai a town mav have by law wbat is denied the country.

Vance Spiver, the one armed convict who was yesterday sentenc ed by the (iovernor lo Ik- hanged on M.iv I tit li. committed suicide in his cell iu the county jail here last night about eight o'ebsk, by cut ting his throat from ear to ear with a short piece of iron which he pul led from the bottom oi ins suoc. Spiver was serving a term in the lieiiitentiary lor miinsiuiigiiier when he murdered a fellow con viet last NovenilsT. He win tried at the Deeeinlicr term of the Crim inal Court and found guilty of mur der iu the lirst degree and sen tenced to be hanged ill January, but his attorneys, Messrs. Harrison & Alston, took an uppenl lo tne Supreme Court. The Supreme Court affirmed the decision of the lower court, mid the Governor yesterday fixed the date of the hanging on Jiay nun. n a inn kuown until yesterday but that the (iovernor would commute to the u.nleiiee to lift) iliilirlsonnieiit, us Sniver's attorneys have been hard at work securing H-titions for this nurnose. but their efforts proved iinsiiecsslul. The supervisor of the penitentiary, m well as the iailer. says .that Spiver was one uf the most desperate characters they had ever had iu their charge. He came near killing anoiner con viet about four years ago, when he was at the Northhampton fui in. He nnd the convict had some words, w hen he grabbed knife find plunged it tolhe hilt in his comrades' temple, lliepnysi raus sav that If the blade hud Urn un fdirhtli of mi inch longer the blow would have proved fatal Spiver waaainan of vicious temper and would have revenge on an one whom he thought hud wronged him. No longer than last week he came near putting out the eyes of a ueirro confined input with mm. All the prisoneisare iiiruisueu wiiu a preparation, which cont uns a large ainoiit of poison, to destroy vermin; the negro, who was routin ed In another cell had beeu teasing Spiver about his seutenee, who had prepared for his revenge. He dissolved the poison in a cup of water nnd when the negro came around the next morning to assist the iailer in feeding Ihe prisoner, Spiver em plied the contents of t he pud in his face. Kv chance he ilosed his eye, but Ihe poison took all Ihe skin off the lids as well as his face. No disposil ion litis liecn mado of Ihe remain, and if no one calls for them he will lie buried at the county home. are ready lo join iu an effort to de slroy it. On the whole, therefore, the condition of public sentiment is most auspicious. Again, the ignorant black vote having Ini-ii eliminated, the sa loon's mM' iu voting, as they have iu the past, large nninls rs uf ig iiorant negroes, iscastdoan. while, ou tbe other hand, Ihe intelligent and honest classes uf the colored race w ho yet have the ballot have made it rule of voting against the chief enemy uf their weakei breth ren the saloun. Of I iiger sig nificance, however, is Ihe tact that the white rati' feels at liberty to take up this question now. after long yearsof waiting and suffering, and they lake it up with Ihe de termination to settle it und settle it right, and if need lie of clusising officers uf the law who will enforce their will when once it has Ihtii expressed. Again, under the new act of the lieuenil Assembly known as the Wults Act there are three changes that make decidedly for the tem perance cause. First, the saloon nnd distillery are excluded 1 1 mil Hie eouuiry (us I i-it-ts. That is. evasion and de struction of municipal prohibition. such ns has Is-en accomplished by setting up saloons just outside of prohibition towns mid cities is now rendered impossible py a sweeping statute.

Third. We may have choice of prohibition, saloons, or distilleries or dispensary. These are decided advantage! and should encourage every citizen ; who has the welfare of the Com monwealth at heart to go readily into this campaign ngaiust the sa loon. I'l it Is- observed that tbe new act diN'S not go into effect until Inly 1, ItMi.'k This accounts for the fact that we look for I ho elec tions not to occur earlier than Sep tember or OctolsT of the present year. Hut this is not the only rea sou. We me of opiuioii that this campaign must la1 commenced im mediately. We must work tnor mighty nnd earnestly, and six months is none too long a nine. We cannot afford to take chances in n matter so grave. Freiiieiitly o lose an election will menu a set back for ten years. We expect that iu every com munity there will lie discussion ol the dispensary ipicstioii, and we take it, therefore, as the part of wisdom to declare our position now. We are first of all opposed to the saloon system. It is recog nized as the worst form of the li ... ii.. iiior tratne. v e are, sccouun, for prohibition. It is as the only really desirable treat ment of the Iniuor traffic.
