Another Oyster Convention
There is probably no subject, at this
time, more interesting or important to
North Carolina, certainly to Eastern
North Carolina, than her vast oyster
industry an industry, in the dawn of
its development, but according to all
human calculation, rich in its promise
ofprorks. To promote its development
it needs capital, but it needs more than
capital it needs protection from tbe
State of North Carolina, in wise aod
adequate legislation to make the invest
ment of capital secure and remunera
tive. The oyster leginration of the last
General Assembly hss not prolectod the
industry It has utterly failed to pro
tect it. In a recent conversation with
Gov. Fowle he admitted and regretted
the iaefficiency of our oyster 1 iws. He
suggested some amendments to the
present law, which we regarded of
The subject requirts careful con
sideration by good-sense men, and prac
tical men who have been identified
with tbe business. The legislative
body is entirely uneuited to the task of
making laws for the benefit of the
oyster business. The failure of our own
State to devise a system of laws for the
protection and development of tbe
business is proof that it requirea'a great
deal of practical wisdom to frame a
bedy of laws that will protect the in
dustry acd give satisfaction to all con
nected with.it. Tbe problem must be
considered and worked out for the
Legislature before it meets by men who
understand the subject, who will give
thought to it and wno will frame and
euggest to the Legislature euch amend
ments to our present oyster law as may
be deemed advisable.
For the reasons above mentioned it
has been suggested that a convention of
persons interested in oysters and of
patriotic citizens interested in tbe de
velopment of the interests of Eastern
Carolina be held at Nags Head, in Dare
county, sometime during the month of
August to consider the oyster question
in all its aspects and suggest such
amendments to our oyster law as may
afford protection to the property of the
State and for the benefit of its citizens.

alighted upon bis back, and grasping
the turtle by the tail with one band and

under water and the head out the turtle
soon found he could not dive and then
made a break for tbe shore. When the

Mr. J. W. Morris, of Doorpark,

about topping cotton. In this

up "sky high," the removal of the
top at the right stage of growth,
alters the form of the plant and
assists in its fruiting. Another
advantage is that the plant shades

cotton grower will appreciate. As

In the former case topping will
change tbe form of the plant, but
have little or no effect on tbe crop,
but where soil or season are the
cause of the mischief, it will pay
to remove the top.
An old planter, who bas prac

the past twenty years, assures 111 e
that labor spent in topping cot ton,
when the spindly growth is not
owing to poor seed, will pay better
than any other labor bestowed on

His modus operandi is to go along
the rows with a long-bladed sharp
knife and chip off the tops. This
can be done at a quick walk and

I have never practiced topping
beyond an occasional plant that
showed its head away above its

mass convention which meets in
Bayboro on next Saturday, the
19th inst. We had a harmonious
meeting, and non. R. I). McOotter
made a good and telling speech.
He warned the Farmers Alliance
if they attempted to discriminate
against the Democrats who did not
belong to their order that defeat
and hopeless defeat to them and
the Democratic party was the cer
tain result. He told them that out
of the 750 Democratic votes in
this county that they only had
about one third of them in the
Alliance, and lots of the Democrats
in the Alliance would not stay
there if they saw their effjrts were
going to turn the county ovrr to
negro and Republican rule His
speech was a Democratic speech
and a good one.
Mr. Editor I hear that of the
Alliance people at Bayboro that
they, the Alliance, were going to
send none bnt Branch delegates to
the congressional convention.
Well, they will have a lively time
at that. All at this end of the
county are for Tom Skinner for
Congress, George tl. Brown lor
Judge and W. T. Caho for Solicitor,
and we intend te see that Tom
Skinner has a fair showing in the
convention and his share of the
delegates. Gen. Roberts has lots
of friends in the connty and he
ought to be represented. We
Democrats in Pamlico county
ought to look at the condition of
politics in South Carolina and stand
together. If the Alliance is a po
litical party they ought to come
square out, and not go in and try
to run the Democratic party. We
Democrats that don't belong to the
Alliance ain't going to give up the
Democratic party that easy.
A large majority of the Demo
crats in this connty, in fact fonr
fifths of them, are for Zeb. Vance
for the U. S. Senate, and we don't
intend to let any man go to the
Legislature from this county that
is not for Zeb. Vance.
