Accordingly, Mevrs. done. and were heard three hours
last Tuesday night, on Indepen

conies' to great disappointment..
Both claim to be Demorrnts one
regular and the other Independent.
But we d" not hesitate to say that
the discussion was a disgrace to politic. Neither pre
tended to argue the great n,ue
tions now before the country, but.
the whole time wa.s taken tin in I
low anil disgusting personal attacks
and allusions, anl not one ray of ;
light or hope came to the anxious
hearers who looked to this meeting;
for some solot'on of the diftlculties
before them. More than this: We
believe the discussion calculated to
do immense injury in unsettling
the popular mind and arraying it
against the recognized principles
of government and social order.
i We do not believe (as charged by
Iboth gentlemen in some form or '
i other) that either the banks, the '
'bondholders, free trade or the '
tariff, capital or labor, public ex-'
travaganco or taxation, internal
revenue or civil service reform, ;
singly or collectively, is entirely
responsible for the present hard
times. But we do believe and
solemnly assert that in oar opinion
the source of the trouble lies mainly
in tho eiisttnc dcmnral i nation of

dissipations, its indolence, its ex
travagance, its wastefulness, and
its growing disregard of the re

to these we .rill now, lrom time to

regardless ol past party afllliat ions.

whither we are drifting."

re-cjntlv gave an interesting sketch
of "The Hills of Wilkes," several
of whom belong to our Young
Farmers' Club, including ('apt.
Harry Hill, of Atlanta, w ho repre
sents the fourth generation. ,md
does it well:
The Hill family, of Wilkes
county, ha-s won a name throughout
the State, oti account of its num.
ters, and the general thrift which
characterizes each of its members.
Wilkes county has long been noted
for the eminent men it has pro
duced, whose fame was achieved
on the lench, at the bar. or on the
hustings. The Hills, however,
have the distinction of ha mg
made their name in the world of
commerce. The ijualtty ol getting
money and of holding it has been
transmitted until now each of the
descendants is a king 111 his sphere.
Something atouf a century ago
there appeared among the settlers
of Wilkes a young man named
Wylle Hill. lie cnie from Wake
county. North Carolina, bringing
with him his voung wife. He
started in business as a trader m
horse collars and door mats. Ho
was as methodical and self .assort
ing with his familv as lie was with
his money. Four sons, Burrell.
Thomas, Wylle V. and Ijodowiek
Meriwether, were born unto him,
a.s well as four "laughters. Over
all he held patriarchial sway until
the d ay ol his death .
In the treatment of his lour
daughters he was something more
than patriarchial. lie never ceased
to look njoii them as immediate
members of his household. In all
his calculations tor expenditures,
purchases, etc., they were incladed.
In fact, it is said that ho never
made a domestic purchase which he
did not duplicate for each of the
daughters. In this respe-ct he
tnnst have been a charming father-:
in law. 1
Lodowick Meriwether Hill, the
youngest of the sons, who subse
quently became the mo3t famous,
hrfan life with a romance. One of
vne. 01
hi school enmnanions was h is I
pretty cousin, Nancy Johnson. I en,"K (,f the surface. A layer of

matnritv hron?ht them face to face 1 thoroughly cultivating the orchard
with lifo thev ioine1 hands and
btarted on the jonrney together,
with only. one dollar in cash be-
tween tbem. Aftr years of hap
piness, the bride, now the mother
of nine pons and one daughter,
passed into the spirit land. Later:
Mr. Flill married his second wife,
Miss Martha Welborn, by whom he
became the father of two sons.
This made his family consist of
twel 'e children, but one ot whom
is dead.
To tell the .story of I.. M. Hill's
life woald bi to weave a romance'
of toil in which abundant wealth,
rewarded hard work and patient
industry. He believed in the vir
tue of Georgia soil, and his belief
was never dampened. As he be
came possessed of money, more
than he could reinvest as a planter,
he songht outside investments,
Principally in Georgia railroad
Btoct, men as i resilient 01 a iwiit
in Washington, anl still later as
President of the Gate City NutiODal
Hank of Atlanta. T.ut in the
midst of all these interests ho
never forgot that the foundation
of his wealth was in Wilkes county
acns, and that the dollar extracted
from the soil was less tleeting than
that earned in bank exchange.
His richest possession, however,
' was his family. By strict disci
pline, the inculcation of habits of
obedience, and the development ol
a high sense of honor, the children
grew up around him so as remind
one of the patriarchal days ol
' Israel, when the father stood as the
' representative of all authority. He
put each one at work, and never
permitted any of them to cultivate
habits of idleness, lie well knew
that the making of money was only
less difficult than the keeping ol it.
and that the poorest legacy a
father could leave his children
would In- a fortune lor idleness to
dissipate. Therefore each one was
impressed with the necesity o!
self reliance. This habit prepared
them for the posts in life which
they were destined to occupy.
When the late war between do
States broke out the nine sons whu
were old enough to m-i ve, went
tho fiont and -erved thioiigh the
entire period until Appoinat"X w.i
reached. When they returned
home, notwithstanding their four
years of incessant service, but one
of them had sustained a i'.wi.i!!)
tho loss of an arm. Thcv leturned
at once to work w ith the ;ni iin h
had characterized the two pre
ceding generations, and one b
one, established themselves as
men of business and prolufy. The

This nairative illustrates the fact
that there is money in the common
avocations of life to those who will
be industrious enough toeain :t,
and that it is not necessary to court
the crowded streets of cities in'
order to win success. The Hills

If the autumn or summer is very
dry, it may be necessary to water
the trees, but this is very rarely ,
necessary when the soil has been
properly prepared and thorough
cultivation is given afterward. This
stirring must be over the entire
surface of the orchard, not around
the trees for a few feet only. The
ground of a peach orchard should

It may also be necessary to mulch.
Mulching shonld always be done
lefore watering: it is much better.
Watering is the last resort. No
matter what the season, mulch
cherry trees. I f
watering must be
done, remove the surface earth and
aftet wards replace it. Then the
water w ill reach the roots and no
crust will form. Trees are injured
by watering, ten times as often as
by neglect to water. Likely it is
better to apply the water to the
branches than to the roots, unless
the soil is dry. If the trees are
shriveled, or the buds fail to start,
wet tho top each evening, being
careful not to use too much water.
Often when the roots are ouite

The present, political contest in this
county i f such a peculiar character
that no citi7n can be uninterested or
passive. It is a time and occasion when
iiel i (Terence is al most criminal . and f ail
ure to perform one's whole duty repre
hensible. To exercise the right of
suffrage is not a mere privilege, it is a
duty that ;it t!.: 'imeis mandatory in
. its nature, anil , unbent upon every
ciu.en who deMit good government
and the perpetuity and maintainecce
of our liberties. In local elections
hitherto, ind iiTerence among Democrats
may have been pardonable as no hope
of success existed in the face of Repub
lican majorities; many of the rank and
file of lo 'publicans were indilTerent be
cause they relied upon their leaders who
ran the "'machine" to nominate the
ticket, for which they mechanically
voted knowing that it was the best and
all tliuv could do. Hut now! when
good and honorable men in both parties
who have long viewed the corruption
and imbecility that characterized the
managers and recent legislative repre- 1
sentrttives. with shame and regret,
have burr-t the shackles and fetters of
Bourbonism. and assuming a hiph,
lofty and patriotic t-tand. have clasped
hands in the common cause of ending
the deplorable state into which the po
litical affairs of our county has fallen,
it becomes the bounden duty of every
ooo. f citiz-Ti w itliout regard to his former
party affiliations to come manfully for
ward and bring to a successful issue
this splendid scheme so happily inau-
gurated. It is a time when there is "a :
tide in our alTairs which if taken at its
flood, will lead to" good government'
anil thf countless blessings that follow
in its wake; to be apathetic now is
suicidal , if failure ensues there is no
knowing when thn opportunity may
again occur: it is a time when wide
political breaches may be filled , scars '
healed, pood fellowship and brotherly
feeling created by fighting in the same 1
cause and create a sentiment that will I
pervade the body politic that will lead I
to prosperity and happiness. 1

will result not only in the purification
of the Republican party, but will be an
assurance and guarantee for the future
that its nominees will be pure and
capable men.
The fact must not be lost sight of that
the ticket headed by Clark and Stimson
i. nor an "Independent" ticket, only in
so for as it is independent of a faction
of the Republican party. It is the most
thorough-going regular ticket ever
placed before the people of Craven
county. It has been formally nominat
ed and placed in tiielield by a regularly
created Republican nominating conven
tion: it has been indorsed and approved
by a meeting of citizens without regard
to party, and has been recommended
and indorsed by the Democratic county
committee and county Democratic con
vention. It has been presented in such
a manner as to leave no chance for any
good citizen, whatever his political
prad iloctions. to hang a single objection
thereto. The jicrsuii to I of the ticket is
unexceptionable, the very best elements
of both parties are selected for the of
fices for which they are peculiarly fitted
and who stand morally, socially and
personally the peers of any gentlemen
in the county. This ticket has no oppo
sition from any source, except a few
obstructionists who shamelessly assume
to be the Republican party of the county
but who in reality are but an incon
siderable faction w-ho seek to delude
our colored citizens into opposition to
our trebly indorsed ticket. Craven
county is no Utopia and while making a
long stride toward the "Golden era" in
the construction of our ticket, it is not
reasonable to suppose that nil are good
and governed by hih and patriotic
motives: there ever was. and always
will be nearly as many bad men as
good, in fact there is a constant warfare
going on between the good and bad ele
ments, with varying results: unhappy
is that community in w hich the latter
prevail and criminal are the good men
always preponderating who permit the
bad to gam an ascendency. In the pres
ent contest there cm be no excuse for
apathy or lndufe rence. th
ere is no room
for grumbling, neither gi
or good Republican, no
od Democrat
matter how-
strict his party allegiance, an hesitate
to vote for men so strongly indorsed by
their respective parties.
The Coalition ticket is not a choice of
two- ivils. it l- all giod. and the oppo
sition to it onlv is evil. The ci .-, ( Jt
elements of both parties are in the van
,,f Coalition, and are supported by all
who desire pure p l,ties and go., i g..v-

Mr. Mary J. Prentiss, widow of the
celebrated Sergeant S. Prentiss, in an
open letter to the Rev. Dr. W. II. Mil
burn, published in the New Orleans
papers, vindicates the memory of her
husband from a reference made to him
in a recent address by Dr. Milburn,
which. Mrs. Prentiss considers "the
very worst of all the calumnies ever
circulated against him." Concluding
Ik r letter. Mrs. Prentiss says: "I feel
that I have not long to live, and I wish j
before I die to bear witness to the char- j
actcr of my husband, which I do not;
hesitate to pronounce the noblest and
purest I havo ever known. Permit me !
to state to you that he was utterly de- j
void of selfish ambition, living only to j
servo his country and his fellow-men,
and desiring to be remembered only by ;
those he loved: that his fortune was,
lost by the decision of the Supreme
Court of the United States involving his
title to the Yieksburg Commons; that
he died of a disease inherited from his
father, and that his death was hastened
by the fatigue and exposure of the
presidential canvass of 1S48. and bv
overwork in his efforts to extricate j
himself from his financial difficulties."
In referring to the Gubernatorial
canvass in Tennessee a Baltimore paper
wisely remarks: "The canvass now
being conducted in Tennessee by the
brothers "Bob" and "A1C Taylor, the
candidates respectively of the Demo
cratic and Republican parties for the
office of Governor, is as remarkable as
it is instructive. They travel together
and "divide time" on the stump in the
old-fashioned Southern way, each
showing to the best of his ability that
tho other is sadly mistaken in his polit
ical views, but abstaining wholly from
personalities not of a complimentary
character. The iir6t remark, indeed,
that "Alf "' makes when it is hia turn to
open the discussion is "Bob is a perfect
gentleman, and I'll whip the man that
says he isn't." Bob exhibits a like
fraternal regard for Alf, and in a can
vass covering the whole State nothing
unkind has been said by either about
the other. Both are good fiddlers.
Sometimes their arguments are diversi
fied by excellent interludes of their
own playing, Bob conceding that in
music, but that only, ho is "second fid
dle" to Alf. Campaigns in Maryland
have not always been characterized by
the nice sense of the proprieties that
the Tennessee brothers exhibit. It
might be well for our politicians to take
their example to heart and learn in the
conduct of a canvass to discuss princi
ples instead of persons.

Rev. J. 15. Harrell, of Mount Olive, j
preached the opening sermon, and Rev. ,
R. C. Landling the missionary sermon.
Rev. J. L. Stewart, a good preacher, i
a superior lawyer, and a Napoleon of j
presiding officers, was moderator
Rev. J. T. Britt was clerk.
There was a good attendance, the
speaking w as spirited, and tho whole
session harmonious and inspiring.
The churches reported considerable
gains in membership, and the fact is
worthy of note that several new and
promising young pastors have been
added to the Association during the
past year: Rev. G. M. Tolson. of "Wil
mington: Rev. J. B. Harrell, Mount
Olive: Rev. V. B. Pope, Warsaw: and
Rev. Jir. Corns, Sampson county.
John E. Rav represented the State
Mission Board, located in Raleigh, and j
tated that there were some eighty mis-,
sionaries at work in destitute nelds in
the State under ther appointment, and j
tho most gratifying results have at- j
tended their labors. ;
Rev. C. A. Jenkins, of . the Oxford j
Female Callege, read the report on edu- ,
cation, from which it appeared that the j
female schools at Murfreeehoro, Ox-1
ford, Thomasville and Shelby are all in j
a prosperous condition, while Wake !
Forest opened with ISO students, the j
best beginning of a session in its his
tory. This college has now $113,000 of;
invested endowment, much of it bring- i
ing i per cent., and it has not lost a j
dollar since the war. . There are forty
young men studying for the ministry,!
about thirty of w hom are aided by the j
Board of Education, located at the col- j
lege. Not more than S117 are given to j
any man. Many do not receive half
that, and none are aided if they or their .
friends are able to support them at 1
college. Some of the best met) the j
Baptists have been blessed with have;
been beneficiaries of this Board. Yates, ;
of China: Pritchard, who died of yel
low fever in "Wilmington in IS 62; Ivey, (
Durham. Gwaltney. R. B. Jones of j
blessed memory, and many other good ;
men were aided by this Board. i
The report on Homo Missions, "which j
embraces all the destitute iields in the j
South, including the Indians, showed',
25j men at work and an expenditure
of S'Ji.OUO for the past year. j
The subject of the Baptist orphanage
was also considered, and it was devel
oped during the discussion that this in
stitution is exceedingly popular with
the people. It is a new enterprise
but a little over a year old and almost
without effort 13.000 has been given it.
Three of the buildings have been com
pleted, the foundations of five others
have been laid, and already over llfty
l.ttle helpless children have been re
ceived. The Orphanage owns over 300
a rcs ,,f land about one mile from

with fruit trees. There is a beautiful
