THE Chatham Record has a
timely article on listing taxes. At
tention i called to the fact that
mor tnett swear falsely in listing
their taiables than in doing any
thing else They seem to think it
right ta cheat the government out
of all the taxes they can, forgetting
that they are only cheating their
fellow taxpayers and committing
perjury to do it. The sworu duty
of the assessors is to ascertain the
true valae in money of all real and
personal property and assess the
same in accordance with said val
nation. It is an important duty
assigned to the assessors and it is
to be hoped that they will perform
it faithfully and in accordance with
j nst ice and fairness to all parties
SLA5BER UPOX SOUTHERN
At the recent meeting of the
"Soathern Presbyterian Church at
Tois. while the question of!
onion with the Northern Chnrch
wa. being disou&sed, a Virginia
clerjtJTnan is charged with using
the following argument against
"You will th eleat bUck gen
tleman offer hia arm to yonr white girl
and h irratafaUy accept it. The po
pto froea Virginia to the gut will not
hare their relation with the colored
race decided by the Northern Church. "
The name of this Virginia cler
gyman La not given in the notice
from which we get the above, but
how the union of these Churches
will destroy all self-respect and
pride of Anglo-Saxon blood among
Soathern girls we are unable to
discern. "Why has not such been
the result in the union of the
Northern and Soathern Episcopal
Churches t It is a slander upon

J.HE COLOR LITE FADING A WAY.
Senator Ingalls, in his late Abi
lene speech, used this expression :
I have no hesitancy in saying that
granting the right of suffrage to the
colored people has proven an abso
lute and unqualified failure." We
are not surprised at snch an utter
ance; we were looking for it. He
oalyjrave expression to the belief
of all the Repnbhean leaders.
Many sensible people believe that
if they could disfranchise the cot
oreri people now there is no doubt
they would do it, but the Deinoc
racy of the country will never per
mit it. rCkariotte Chronicle.
The Democracy of the country,
since it Is pledged .to maintain the
light of the colored people to vote,
cannot afford to draw the color line
in conducting a campaign. If the
olor line is drawn at all it must
be done by the colored people them
selves. Leading Bepablicans like
Lsoaxxs are ready to declare the
colored people unworthy of the
right of suffrage jast so soon as
they begin to exercise independence
and discretion in casting their bal
lots. They begin to see the mis
take in arraying themselves solidly
on one Bide. They have had it
within their power to abolish the
color line in politics since the first
time they exercised the right of
suffrage, and it would have been to
their interest to have done so.
DEATH OF P. . HALE.
The AVir anl Observer of Friday
last announces the death of Peter
Maulett Hale, a noted journalist
and publisher, and State Printer for
two years past. Few joarnalists hava
done more lor the material welfa-e
of North Carolina than Mr Hale.
The following paragraphs from the
Neic and Obaerver't notice of his
death will give the reader an idea
of some of bis work, and his hand
book of North Carolina iolitics is a
Bam pie of the services done for the
Democratic party of the State:
In 1876 Mr. Hale returned to
North Carolina, and in conjunction
with Col. Wm. L. Saunders began
the publication of the Observer at
KaXeigh- at once establishing that
paper on a higher plane of journal
ism than had ever before beeu at
tainedby any North Carolina paper.
The Wilmington Journal, which
had been the leading paper of the
State, was no longer in the field,
and from the first the Observer w.is
of commanding influence in North
Carolina affairs. The work p-r
formed by Mr. Hale in this new
field of labor redounded to his
honor and received the merited ap
plause of his fellow citizens. No
other instrument had ever been n
potent in developing the resources of
the State and furthering the ad
vancementof those works of internal
improvement which have in more
recent years contributed to her
prosperity. Particularly may we
say that his firm espousal of the
measures inaugurated for the com
pietioo of the Western North Caro
lina railroad won tor him the last
ing gratitude ot those sections of
the State whose development de
pended upon the completion of that
work. And the event justified the
soundness of his judgment.
The great prosperity and ad
vancement and progress we today
witness across the mountains, 11
largely dae to the untiring efforts of i
Mr. Hale to secure lor the people
ot that section those

If the Democrats fail at the next
ses-ion of Congress to formulate
some plan by which taxes will be
reduced so that the receipts will
conform to an economical adminis
tration of the government, they
will lose much of their claims upon
the people for re-election in 1888.
A rich government means a poor
people. No government can afford
to te uDiust to its people. No gov
ernment has a right to take from
its people more money than is ab
solutely necessary to defray legiti
mate expeuses. The party that
permits or endorses such unjust
taxation cannot long retain the
confidence' of the people.

Democrats of the last Congress
that they only had a majority in

that they could not. or did not,

Grant has leen brought up to the
city and was on exhibition on
Front street today. He is an ugly
looking customer, something more
thau ten feet in length, with a
month that looks as if an ordinary
pig would make no more than a
jrood bite. The sail news ol the
death this morning of Col. William
L. Smith, one ot the most valued
and esteemed citizens of Wilming
ton, has provoked one universal
sentiment of sorrow and regret.
His illness was of but short dura
tion and outside of the immediate
circle of his family and friends it
was not known that he was serious
ly ill. He was on the street last
week and hence the sad news of
his death was all the more start
ling. Chatham Record: Notwithstand

Remedies for the Toothache.
liY AN OLD PHYSICIAN.
The remedy for the toothache
I should alw ays correspond with the
exciting cause. Pain from pressure
is commonly relieved by tue re
mnral of tn ofl'endln snlistanci'
from the cavity. When svmnathe-
tic with some organ of the system,
it must always vars' with the state
of that part. Avoid, if you can,
whatever may produce if. Tooth
ache from cold may be cured by
anodynes, such as opium, hyoscya
ruus, belladonna, or such astrin
gents as concentrated acetic acid,
strong nitric acid, nitrate of silver.
Should the toothache have arisen
from heat suddenly applied, or fi om
sharing in the intlaination of neigh
boring parts, then the mouth ought
tial oils le droped into the painful
cavity; or what is better, flannel,
dipped in spirits and sprinkled
with pepper, laid npon the cheek.
Hot brandy may be used, oil of
cloves, cinamon, cajeput, lavender;
Kreosore is exrremeiy pungenc, dui
very disagreeable to use. If the
pain unusually bad, have recourse
to ;he warm bath, and let leeches
be applied to the temples. Where
swelling of the gums is present, re
peated scarification will do good.
Toothache is sometimes sympathe
tic with a deranged and irritable
state of the alimentary canal. It
grows worse towards me evening.
In the eighty- use. ou must attend to the ac

emetic has frequently cut short an
attack ol toothaclie. About a wine-
glassful of inspecacnan wine is a
very mild and safe emetic.

Misses Lucy Brooks and M. A.

only thirteen months. None, we
learn, took over that time, and
some ol the performers under ten
months. NVe heard a wish ex

could lie given once every month,
but we think it would require men

seems to lack physical strength,

Mr. A. F. Cox, ol' Cypress Creek
has a fine colt ot the Terry blood,
nearly two years old.
The board of magistrates met at
Trenton today, and organized
by electing Tlios, Wilson, Esq.,
their chairman and elected Wm.
E. Ward, Esq., a commissioner to
till the unexpired term of Mr. Cyrus
Drown, deceased. A good selec
tion, one that will give entire satis
faction to the whole county. The
following were elected for the
board ot education: J)r. Charles
Wondley, Benjamin Brock and
Jas. B. Stanly.
The magistrates and assessors
had a full discussion on the equali
zation of the taxes on the lands of
the county, and raised the valua
tion between oO and 40 per cent,
and also raised the personal pro
perty to 33. per cent above last
year's valuation. The magistrates
and commissioners then levied a
tax of Giir; cents on the hundred,
which will be amply sufficient to
defray the current expenses of the
county and pay the interest ou the
(ironing Yc White Ash.
The seed of the ash ruay be sown
iu the fall, and covered with straw
to a depth of four inches; or mayjbe
sowu early in the spring, mixing
the seed with damp sand. The
weeds must be kept down in the
beds. Be fore the trees are trans
planted the ground is plowed and
mellowed to receive them. Trans
planting is done in the early spring.
The trees are planted two feet
apart in rows six feet apart. As
they grow theyarethinncd out uutil

when the .shade will keep down the

Saved His Life-
Mr. D. I. Wilcoxson, of Horse Cave,

aillicted with Phthisic, also Diabetes:
the pains were almost unendurable and
would sometimes almost throw him
into convulsions. He tried Electric
Bitters and got relief from first bottle,
and after taking six bottles waa entirely
cured and had gained in flesh eighteen
rounds- Says he positively believes he

the relief afforded by Electric Bitters,
