No public enterprise succeeds

Nothing contributes more to the
character, prosperity and progress
of a community than a well con
ducted newspaper. It is easy to
find a fault, but it is not always
generous to parade it with
out suggesting a remedy. A news
paper is good or bad as it meets or
fails to meet the purpose for which
it was established. A literary
paper is a very different thing lrom
a commercial reporter, and there
should be little affinity between a
religious herald and a police ga
zette. Where the characteristics
of all these different kinds of news
papers are expected to predominate
in a single publication there must
necessarily be disappointment for
there has not yet been born tbe
man who can blend all these ele
ments as the colors of a rainbow.
The New Berne Daily Journal
does not pretend to be an exception
to the general rule. From its origin
its leading thought has been the
prosperity of New Berne., and the
up building of.East Carolina. From
this purpose it has never deviated,
nor will it be diverted from the
line it has elected to follow.
It is pleasant to acknowledge the
generous support that has been
given to us in the past and the

reeognizes that it has duties in

brethren as follows :
Farmers and Alliance men of
Jones county, recollect the New
Berne Fair commences Monday,
the 24th of February. Don't-forget
to take along with you some
thing to exhibit from your farms.
Take with jou jour wives and
daughters and hons ; let them, too,
see the Fair. The old folks gen
erally visit the circus just to let the
children enjoy it. Now if you
don't cake aDy interest in the Fair,
take the young folks there and let
I them enjoy it If you can't attend

I great productions of our Eastern

j the intellectual lights of our Order
j will be there on Wednesday, which

Alliance man in Jones county who
j Posslby ca" 0UgQt to be there on
that day. Let me say to the ten
Alliances in Jones county, gather
up all the articles j on can and have
onexibition in time.
Let us see which Alliance in
Jones county can carry to the Fair
the most creditable exhibit. Other
counties we learn will have a large
collection of articles on that day.
Brothers, let us go to work im
mediately and scrape np onr marie,
field crops, hogs, cattle, together
with the many old curiosities that
can be gathered in our county.
Don't wait until a few days before
the Fair, but coameuce now.
Don't go to the Fair and come
home telling your neighoors that
if you had h id .such articles there
you could have obtained the pre
mium, for jours was much super
ior, aud that you would have had
it on exhibition but you were
afraid some one would have the
same article that w ould be better

How will the visitors to the Fair
ever learn anything of our rich
lands, onr forests of 'timber, etc,
if on that day we should fail to
make a decent exhibit of our pro
ducts? When the negroes leave
us many of our large land owners
will have to dispose of their lands,
as they cau't cultivate them them
Then let us strive to place our
productions in such a position that
the whole country ean learn that
Jones county is a good county;
that we are a thriving, industrous
people; that here is a place where
one can purchase a good home and
make as comfortable a living, with
as little hard drudgery, as any
where in the United States.
It must be a matter of surprise
that the United States of America
delay their recognition of the
United States of Brazil.
We question if there is a decade
in the history of this country in
which such a foreign policy as now
prevails could have had the sanc
tion of the American people.
Why does the Government hesi
tate ? .Is the Harrison administra
tion afraid ? What, has frightened
the belligerent Blaine ?
The Republic is established and
in favor with the people. "What
earthly reason can there be for
further delay on our part to wel

Have the centralizing tendencies
of the day influenced this ques
tion ? The truth is, there have
been greater strides towards cen
tralization, since tbe inauguration
of Harrison, than in all the past
history of the country.
Again we express thanks to the
press of the State for kind and
favorable notices of our Fair. This
is characteristic of the newspapers
of North Carolina.
Too much cannot be said for our
approaching Fair. The manage
ment is capable and active, and
has the support ol the entire com
munity. There has not been in the past so
general an attendance of editors
and reporters as0was desired, but
if present indications are reliable,
tne press of the State will be very
generally represented next Febru-
ary. piease remember that the

The Snow Blockade.
Saw Francisco, Jan. 29. It now
seems probable that the great blockade
on the Sierras will soon be over. The
big rotary plow has been dug from the
snow in the Cascade canon, and has
done splendid work since. The track
ia now clear as far as tbe Dlow can
clear it. The snow it has been passing
through was nearly as hard as ice, and
averaged twenty feet. The railroad
officials state that the only obstruction
now is about a foot of hard trampled
snow and ice, which covers rails for a
considerable distance. This must be
removed by picks and shovels.
The officials think the blocked trains
will reach here today. The trains have
two weeks' mail. The high water has
gone down all over the State, and the
washouts and landslides are generally
repaired. Great damage has been done
to roads and bridges.
The blockade on the California &
Oregon Railroad still continues, and
there is little prospect of breaking it for
a week ytt. There Is no communica
tion north except by steamer. The
United Statea revenue cutter Rash took
a large amount of mail to Portland,

account with the Knoxville 8avings
Bank. He deposited $2,000 in money
and some checks. He hs a pleasing
address and had letters of introduction
from Middlesborough bank. It now
turns out that he was expert crook. He
was credited by the Knoxville Savings
Bank with cash and checks; one check
was certified, and was for $1,700 on a
New York bank. A telegram from New
York pronounces the certification a
forgery. He took the certified checks
from tbe bank here, made small pur

today. A reward of $750 is offered for
his arrest. He is about 28 years old
and evidently an ex-bank clerk. He
gave bis name as C. L. Paton.
Sr. D. S. Harmon, Optician.
Referring to the above named gentle
man, the Kinston Free Press has the
following: Dr. D. S. Harmon &o.
"Dr. D. S. Harmon left yesterday for
Wi.son, where he will remain for seve
ral weeks. He was kept here longer
than he intended by so many unex
pected patients coming in.
During the seven weeks Dr. Harmon
was in Kinston he made 155 pairs of
lenses, and in no single instance was
any complaint made; and thia is saying
agood deal! as he offered to refund the
money paid in any inetanoe where the
patient were not fully satisfied with
glasses. On the contrary all expressed
themselves as highly pleased with his
work and many for whom he made
glasses oertainJy had something to cause
them pleasure, for from almost blind
ness some now have good sight, and
others from badly defective sight now
see perfectly. He has certainly done
lots of good among our people.
Dr. Harmon carried off with him the
most flattering testimonials of his good
work from our most prominent citi
zens. He is certainly a moat excellent
optician. He has a number of instru
ments of his own invention for measur
ing the eye and the deteotion of defects
of the varioas kinds. He haa the
science of his profession down fine and
if he fails to perfectly fit an eye there is
bit little use for any one else to try.
The community that Dr. Harmon
visits is fortunate, therefore tbe Free
Press congratulates tha people of Wil
son upon his visit to their beautiflul
town, and heartily recommends bim to
such of her citizens aa may be afflicted
with bad eyesight to such, who con
sult him. Dr. Harmon's visit will prove
This sounds well. Of his own free
will and acoord the editor writes this
after the doctor has gone. He can be
found at the Briggs hotel every day."
Nothing Like It.
Every day swells the volume of proof
that as a specific for all blood diseasea,
nothing equals Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery. Remember, this is
an old established remedy with a
record! It has been weighed in the
balance and found fulfilling every
claim! It has been tested many years
in thousands of cases with flattering
success! For throat and lung troubles,
catarrh, kidney disease, liver complaint,
dyspepsia, sick headache and all disor
ders resulting from impoverished blood,
there if nothing like Dr. Pierce's Gold
en Medical Discovery world-renowned
and ever growing in favor!
This remedy is becoming bo well known
and so popular as to need no -special men
tion. All who have used Electric Bitters
sing the same song of praise. A purer
medicine does not exist and it is guaran
teed to do all that is claimefl. Electric
Bitters will cure all diseases of the Liver

A curiosity in the shape of a stalk
of cotton tied to the front part of a
wagon, attracted the attention of people
on Trade street this morning. The stalk
was scarce three feet in height and was
covered from the top to within two
inches of the root with open boils of the
fleecy staple. It bore 117 of these fully
developed, besides twelve whioh had
not opened, the entire stalk being an
unusual thing so late in the season. It
was grown on the plantation of Mr.
J. W. Dunn, near Rozzels Ferry.
Wilmington Star: A Lincoloton dis
patch to the Charlotte Chronicle states
that there is great interest being mani
fested in developing the iron properties
in Lincoln and surrounding counties.
Agents of Northern capitalists are re
ported' ta be searching everywhere for
properties containing ores and several
leases have been made of the principal
veins. Several leases have been made
at figures ranging from $16,000 upwards,
with a view to work and development.
This gives evidence thatthe iron ores of
this State are attracting the attention of
outside capitalists, and that iron mining
and manufacturing is destined to be
come one ot tbe great industries of thie
Wilmington Messenger (Raleigh cor
respondence): Mr. Wilson eays that
the Fair at New Berne next month will
be an excellent one. The prospect of a
railway from New Berne southward is
having a very stimulating effect. In
quiry was made this afternoon in regard
to Col. Polk's condition. It was learned
that he was very slightly improved,
and is yet quite sick. His trouble is of
the kidneys. Few people have even
an' idea of the very great amount of
business transacted by tbe "State Busi
ness Agency" ef the Farmers' Alli
ance. Yesterday, for instance the
orders for supplies, exclusive of fertili
zers, aggregated 82 000, and those for
commercial fertilizers 1.000. These
orders are in all caaee accompanied by
the cash. Business Agent Worth has
his hands full.
Tarboro Southerner: The reporter
was informed Tuesday that the jail
doors were open for the first time since ' j
it was built. After Capt. Watson had
taken his force out on the road there
was no one left, therefore its doors
were flung open to the breezes tod v
This is remarkable. Between 1.500 J
and 2.000 negroes, large and Btn ll have
left this county; yet except in town
ships nine and ten where they are com
paratively few they are not misced.
The individuals may be but the num
bers are not. At last it seems that
the emigration fever has subsided and
the farm laborers have gone to work.
From what the reporter can learn there
is no trouble among the farmers in
getting laborers. It is remarkable that
as much as the labor in this county has
been agitated tbia and last year that so
much work on the farms haB been accomplished.
