If what those gen tlemen claim, be true, whilst there is no justification for the bloody deed, there is some palliation of the horror of the affair. But even with that amelioration being ac cepted the crime is yet heinous and dies out for vengance. Char- otte Chronicle. ' IS THERE NO REMEDY ! It has been said that t Here is no evil for which there is no remedy. We trust that this ia true, but we oogafess that we are discouraged by the lynchings that have become so common. Abstractly speaking, lynching is universally condemned, but every now and then we are shockedby the announcement that some com- inanity, noted for the refinement and Christian character of its people, has been the scene of a terrible tragedy, the result of un bridled passion and an insatiate thirst ibr revenge. We know that these lynchings are usually beeanse of the commis sion Of a erirae of the deepest dye, bat it mnst be remembered that the truest manhood is displayed in the mastery of the passions and a sublime reverence for law under all olroam stances.

Capital Will Net I area Where Energy "and Public Spirit arc Kot Apparent. Editob Jouknai,: The prog ress and development of our State and country, the life and vigor of the times, are all primarily doe to railroad building and extension. At those pomts, and in the re gions beyond, which , these haye not gone, there is nothing of any value in these days; ftp energy, no push, no prosperous population. It is not deemed by any that a ipeople can profitably exist now without advantageous railway con nection and convenient communi cation. Everywhere the people are clamoriDg for more railroads and better railroad facilities, and through communities' oftering the most flattering inducements, and across teoritones over which it is necessary to reach desirable locali ties, capital, uninterested, is eager ly laying down new lines of rail road, but there are other sections so situated that they must help themselves, if they would have others help them. New Berne is of the latter class. Her position in the commercial world, for the past forty years, her industrial progress and material development, have not been sach as to beget an anxiety in outside capital to give her multiplied rail road facilities, -and if she gets any more than she already has she mnst show, by her own works, her faith in their value as investments. She has entered upon no such system of public improvement as inspire in business circles abroad the idea of a live, progressive com munity of prosperous people. OatBide capital and foreign energy do not eek such places of congealed public spirit. They have got to first move, by doing some thing for themselver. - Mechanic. DEAD IS THE WOODS. Prosperity Languishes in the Finest Agricultural Area of the State. Editob Jouenax : Agricul turally considered there are few naturally finer sections of country than that lying between New Berne and Jacksonville, along the pro posed line of the East Carolina Railroad, from New Berne to Jacksonville. A territory is embraced con tiguous to the proposed line capable ot sustaining ten times the popula tion of Craven county. Such a population, engaged in the various industries, and cultivating the soil, would pour into the lap of New Berne a treasure of wealth never dreamed of in the hour of ber highefct commercial prosperity. Tnat such a population will ever Beek that locality withont the ad vantage of railway communication it is idle to speak of. The popula tion is not there now. The number of working people is daMy diminish ing, and the section is year by year yielding fewer of the products of the soil, as the decreasing trade ot New Berne plainly indicates. In stead of coming, people are going where better facilities offer greater inducements. And so it will con tinue. The eighty-five thousand acres of rich white oak lands, which the city of'NewBeme aquires an interest in, through her fifty thousand dol lar subscription to the East Caro lina Railroad, stripped of its tim ber, would constitute a farming area not surpassed in Eastern Carolina. These lauds lying in a bodv, will afford the opportunity of inviting hundreds of thrifty farmers, of means, energy and new ideas in he, cultivation of the soil. The addition of such population is an acquisition to be desired. The combined products of such an area newly brought under cultivation, would be most welcome today in the empty market places of New Berne. Faemee. OUTSIDE CAPITAL A Proposition to Induce a Million Northern Capital. of Editor Jouknal: It is proposed thit thcity of Nw Berne ehatl subscribe fifty thousand dollars in thirty year five per cent, bonds to the capital stock of the East Carolina Land and Railway Company, and by that subscription will be a part owner of the eigbjy-five thousand acres of land granted to it by the State. The conditions are such that the lands cannot come into the bands of the Com pany until the a&ilroad is completed from this city to its terminus at Jack- sanvlle, Onslow county, where it meets the Wilmington and Onslow Railroad; and the city is required to pay no inter- sat until the road is completed and the cars running to Jacksonville. A fairer or better proposition was never made to a people, xne burden proposed is not a heavy one. The sub scription is small, and the rate of interest low. The interest for tbe amount, exolusire of sinking fund, is but two thousand five hundred dollars a year, and tbe principal is not called for under thirty years, and in all like hood never would be. Every taxpayer should hare the in telligence to appreciate how muoh tbe road will probably beseflt the town, and add to the value of his estate. There may be some who will oppose this scheme. There will be none to dispute that some such step is necessary for tbe welfare and existence of tbe place. Of those who may probably op pose the project, there must be few who will say they are satisfied with either the present condition or future outlook of affairs in New Berne. If there is any place that needs help it is New Berne Those are helped who help themselves. Since considering the matter, I shall vote for the. road Tax Payee. EPOCH.

The Atlantic Road Worth Millions the County and City. to Edisoe Jouenal : If anybody is disposed to urge his opposition to railroad subscription with the example of the connty subscription to the A. & N. C. R. R. let him stop and ask himself what that road has done for Craven county and the city of New Berne. How many Craven county mouths bas the A. & N. C. R.R. fed daring the past thirty years T Ilow much money did the building of that road scatter through Craven coun ty T How mncb permanent wealth! aid it lay down in the county 01 Craven t To how many people, outside of the railroad employ ment, has the A. & N. C. R. R. afforded tbe means f earning liv ings? flow many thousands of strangers has it brought into New Berne, and caused to spend their money for board and lodgings t How many hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of fish caught in Neuse river has It made markets for in the interior of the State! How many thousands of dollars worth of truck has it carried to the Northern markets from points not accessible to the steamers? How many millions of dollars worth of fish has it carried to the interior of the State from Morehead City ! Has it not been the means ot keep ing alive the business that has sustained the steamer lines so im portant to the commerce of Kew Berne? What has been the value of the mail communication which the A. & N. C. R. R. has been af forded the various points in the county, and adjoining counties ? These are some of the questions that an opponent of subscription should ask himself before he ex amples the incident of tbe county subscription to tbe A. & N. C. R.R. As one item alone, the strangers whom the A. & N. C. R. R. has brought into the city of New Berne during its existence, it is capable of demonstration that they have spent in the city alone ahalf ' mil lion of -dollars. Is that not something, of itself, to justify the county subscription, and to in part compensate for tbe money paid out in taxes, to say nothing ot the innumerable bene fits and advantages? A Well Wishes To the A. & N. C. R. R. and a voter to the Onslow Road. J1ERCIRIAL POISON. Mercury is frequently injudiciously used by quack doctors in cases of mala ria and blood poison.

There is an old and homely proverb, "Yon can catch more flies with a drop of syrup than you eaa with a pint of vinegar' and it ia aa truthful aa it is ancient and homely. In discussing toe importance of sub scribing to the capital stock of the New Berne and Onslow Railroad it is notour purpose to offend any ona, or to "drive" when not able to lead. We are in fluenced solely by the desire to ad vance the interest of New Berne, and honestly believing that tha coming of tbe new railroad will do this, it ia but natural we should endeavor to impress others with our belief. If any one honestly differs with us, we hare no fault to find with him, bus if bis oppo sition be baaed upon prejudice to some one identified with the movement, or because he is not "in on the ground floor" or because of any other selfish or personal reason in other words, if there be those who, knowing the propo sition to be a good one for the com munity, are unwilling to divest them selves of a personal prejudice that tha many may be benefited, then we hold that such a person is an enemy to New Berne1 progress. We do not wish to be misunderstood; we make this declara tion in no spirit of unkindnees or per sonal feeling; it is a oold, logical de duction. In view of tbe freqaency and futility of propositions in the past, to advance New Berne's material welfare, it was sincerely hoped that tbe present ques tion would be viewed with practical unanimity ; that especially among the gentlemen who are looked upon as leaders of public sentiment would this be tbe case, and while it is so, to a very great extent, yet there are a few who still hold out in their opposition. To them we say is your attitude wise or patriotic i - Is it wise to permit the weight of your influence to act aa clogs to the wheels of progress ? Come together, join hands, and let this occasion be the dawning of an era in New Berne's history. When ques tions of general interest and impor tance will meet with a cheerful and prompt approval by all classes, and with the concert of action born of this, tbe old town will move forward to prosperity. J. No. 18. . The question of subscribing' to the capital stock of the New Berne and Onslow Railroad haa, wa are pleased to observe, become -the primary and pre dominating one with our people. This ia pleasingly and capitally illustrated by the? cogent, forceful, and earnest expression of opinion to be found in tha columns of the Jouenal raeently, from other pens than our own. Some of the favorable arguments havej been almost epigrammatio' and appeal directly to the intelligence, wisdom and interest of oar people; it is a sub ject that bears discussion and the more it is talked of tha more apparent be comes its desirability. In discussing the proposition how ever, every one should 4 1 tote fair" and not seek to advance or retard it by dis torted or untruthful representations; in one's zeal upon either side, extrava gance of expression may occur, but when, as in known instances colored men are told that the success of the measure means a five dollar poll tax for them; then the boundary line of ex travaganoe is passed and tha broad, illimitable domain of untruth haa been entered. Let both sides stick to the truth, for nothing ia bettor evidence of the goodness of a thing than that you can tell the plain unvarnished truth about it. Misrepresentations upon questions of this character serve as boomerangs, be sides lessening the aslf respect of those that make them and losing the good opinion of those to whom toey are made. The present discussion is doing a good work, In arousing the interest of every class, as to the necessity of doing some thing to Dnng new Berne to the front, and the railroad project being the only one on the carpet, it ia eagerly asked about, and inquired into, by persons who have hitherto drifted along, while permitting other ' people to do their thinking for them. In fact we are having a gentle, local, Renaistauce of free thought and opinion. It having been made apparent how desirable the coming of the railroad iaJ it wm De our purpose tn luture com munications to impress upon the friends of the measure what is necessary to be done to insure its success. Z. No. 19. At tbe election to be held next Thurs day. 9th inst., every one possessing tbe privilege should vote. Tboae in favor of the proposition to subscribe to tbe capital stock of the New Bferne and Onslow Railroad should be certain to vote their conviotion, and those who are opposed should do likewise. Upon this very important, question every one should show his hand; there should be no dodging, no "running with the hare and holding with the hounds," no sitting astride the fence to "flop," as interest may dictate, but each and every one having the right should go to the polls and vote "for" or "against." In this way only, can public sentiment be correctly arrived at, and after the result -shall be made known, the -fellow-who-k no ws-it-all. will be cut off from telling yon how it would have been had there been a full vote. This election differs in an important respect from any other held in the city, as a majority of those who vote will not determine the question, unlVss they also constitute a majority of the regis tered vote. In other words, in order to carry the proposition a majority of the registered vote must te polled for tt. Hence tbe importance ot every friend of the measure, not only voting him self, but seeing to it that others who may be lukewarm or -indifferent are brought out, and asked to do their duty to themselves and New Berne. No event has taken place in New Berne, within the memory of any of the citi zens, that equate in importance tha question to be determined On . next Thursday, and a failure to realize thw by permitting tha defeat 'of tbe ques tion would ba indeed lamentable. Let every friend Of -tha meaenre, from now until the polls closer constitute himself an earnest worker in the cause, and seek to arouse that interest that will result in a sweeping victory. Let it be born in mind that "sub scription" must have a majority of all tbe votes that are registered. Those who register but do not vote are oounted as voting "No. " So the friends of the enterprise must exert themselves to get those whose names are upon the books to come out and vote "For Sub scription." Z. SHALL NEW Oar Oystermen Engaged In the Oyster! Traffic In Month Carolina. Quite a number of eystermen of this section have been obtaining their oys ters this season from the rooks in Pam lico and Core sounds, S. C. Ia faot, last year Captain William H. Elliott, of Portsmouth, obtained all the oysters he planted from that sectian and is. buying largely there tbis year. Tbe oysters are caught by the North Carolina oyster men and sold to the Norfolk vessels at 25 and 30 cents a bushel. This is com paratively a new field for our oyster- men and they have developed a profit able market for tbe tongers in that sec tion who have never heretofore been able to get over six and seven cents a bushel, except when a few hundred bushels were taken in carts and peddled through the country. The bivalves, in faot, were mostly used for burning and converting into lime for fertilizing purposes. It is against the law for Vir ginia vessels or vessels of tber States to take and carry oysters from the waters of North Carolina, but the laws are never enforced. The North Caro lina oystermen do alt the catching themselves, and would promptly cap ture a vessel detected in dredging or using the tongs, but they are extremely anxious to keep the buying vessels there, despite the laws to the contrary, in order to sell to them, and as the county officers are mostly in the fish and oyster traffic the vessels purchasing oysters are rarely interfered with. The present iaws are likely soon to be modi fied or repealed. A large fleet of ves sels from this section have been en gaged in the traffic in Pamlico sound the present season, and some of the heaviest planters in the business have procured all their plants from that resion Nor folk Landmark. In the foregoing extract two state ments are correct and two alone. The Virginia oystermen are certainly en gaged taking off oysters in large num bers contrary to law, and the law is oertainly not enforced. As a matter of fact tbe Virginians pay but six. eight and ten cents per tub, and as their tubs are any size they choose to make them, they really pay considerably lees. The North Carolina oystermen do not do all the oatohing themselves by a large ma jority ,as it is a matter of general notorie ty that the Virginians dredge and tong whenever they get a chance, night or day. The reflection upon tbe county officers may be dictated by the experience of the Virginians with their own officials; tut it is a gratuitous insult to the county com missioners of Hyde, Dare, Carteret and Pamlico counties. The article appears to be an impudent effort to sustain people in an open violation of the laws of this State. LATEST JTEWS.
