Alexander stilled before the conven tion the history of the Mecklenburg road law. He told of the first 111 oveaient which gradually rrystalized into what is known as the Mecklenburg road law; of the tight lie had getting it through the Legislature. The House, he said, siemed determined that Mecklenburg should not h ive good roads, lor fear the contagion would spread over the State. Capt. Alexander stood by the movement though, and in the fice ot strong opposition fought the matter through, being assisted by Capt. W. E. Ardrev and other Representatives. "That bill." said Capt. Alexander, "was; not drawn for Mecklenburg county alone, but for every county in the State: it would fit Cherokee, Buncombe or any other county; it fills the bill for the sandy counties aud for the mountainous ones. The bill is a local one. It works the roads by town ships. Kadi county can regulate the amount of tax to suit itself. Some coun ties can keep up the mads cheaper than others. Kvery farmer is allowed to work out his lax. This svstem is important to the farmer. It is an eln-tie system ; there; is no county it will not tit' ' I "They." continued Capt. Alexander. 'confound the convict sy stem with the i Mecklenburg road law. Lach county snotild work its convicts the same as Mecklenburg. You wlil meet with delays as we did. Our work was at tir-t crude, but we keep on until we have our magnifi cent sy.-tem of to-day. We have gotten to the point where we know what good roads aie. and the time is coming when good roads will radiate cut ot C nnrlotte in every direction. This system can't be kept up very successfully by just one county: it must extend from one county to another, forming a net-work of good roads ( apt. Alexander was heartny ap plauded when he look his seat. Capt. Ardrev read a paper on "What Have Our Good Roads Done for the Far mers of Mecklenburg County" and show cd that the good roads had made marketing opeiiitiniis and oth'i' travel so much ea-ier hr the f 1 rmer and had -o enhanced the Viilu. ol ret! e-tale and the pleasures ot country lite that former strong oppo nents of the system have became the most ardent supporters of its me mires and those i to whom t lie i 10 iiv,,vpmi'ii ts have not ver . extfiide ire clamoring for them and bringing such pre-stire to bear that way: are to be devised to an 10:1-1- the work.

Distillery Burned. About 9:30 a. in. Wednesday the 12th, the distillery belonging to Mrs. K. B. Ellis, w as discovered to be on lire. Two buildings were burned the distillery it se'd, and the storage house. Mr. John Ellis, book-keeper and mana ger of the business roughly estimates the damage at a thousand dollars. There wa- no insiirioice. Seven or t ight streams ot water from the water works played on the buildings. The fire was a remarkably quick one, owing to the strong east wind which pre vailedbut the linemen worked well, as thev always do. and all the property on the opposite side of the street was saved, though it seinied impossible at one time to do so. A little loss was suffered by the people moving out and the residence of Mr. Bisnight caught, but was txtin-gui-hed. The water did some damage. A visitor to the city said he never saw volunteer tiremen work as "ours" did yes terday. They worked as hard as the occasion demanded, but we have seen them work just as faithfully when much more ardent and risky seivice wa9 re ipiired. Our tiremen are rightly the pride of our city. The Speaking at the Populist Con vention After the buaniss of the People's Party convention was transacted there weie three addresses made. The first was by Mr. E. L. Franck ol hislow. He gave a condensed history of linanci d legislation since 1 lie war. He said -onie people declined you could not legislate money into the pockets of the people but that the Republicans had leg islated it out and that it it could be legis lated out it could be legislated back into thorn. He found fault with the financial actiou of the Democrats, and attacked appointments that had been made by Cleveland and confirmed by the senate, and also the Tariff legislation. In the main the speech was a good, sensible one, with very little to which a Democrat would object, except that if Mr Franck could draw off enough voles it would result in placing the Republicans back in power with all the evils we en dure 1 when they had the reins ot Gov ernment. But there were a few things which Mr. Franck did not tell. lie failed to say that the Democratic majority in the Sen ate was so small the defection of two or three from a measure would ensure its defeat and that it was owing to one or two in the Senate that the bill was not better than it was, and he failed to say anything of how much lower the tariff had been made on many articles in com mon use. Mr. W. II. Smith made a very brief address. Dr. Cyrus Thompson, the Third party candidate lor Congress, spoke at consider able length. One of the leading leatures in his speech was talking about Demo cratic majorities in negro counties in Alabama and elsewhere, and charging the Democrats with fraud. He also advised the colored people not to le led off by what Isaac Smith or anybody else might sa v. Rev. J W. Rose's Home Mission Work, According to appointment Rev. J. W. Hose addressed the congregation at the Baptist church Thursday night, making a report of his work. Usually he makes such a report every three months, but the regular order having been interrupted his report last night covered tive months worK. Daring that time Mr. Rose has preach ed 122 sermons, an average of 24 per month. He conducted the services at eight different points, and in journeying to and fro between them he travelled 900 miles, distributed 2,230 pages of tracts and made 118 religious visits. Wheal Mr. Rose, under the charge of the New Berne Bipiist church entered upon this work 21 months ago there was not a church of his denomination at any of the places he is serving. Now there is a church at Cove with 21 members, (when it was organized there were only seven) and a building which was erected a year ago, and which it has beeu wor shipped in every since,though some work still remains to be done upon it when means permit. This was the first church built. There is also a house of worship being erected at Spring Garden, and an orga nization will be effected there upon its completion which will be the first of next month. At Truitt's free church an organiza tion has been effected ard a portion of the money which went to build the church which is as its name applits for any denomination was raised through the efforts of Mr. Rose and his co-laborers. This church has 13 members, eleven of whom were baptized about a month ago as a result of the meetings held the fir-t of August which were conducted by Mr. Rose. The work is mainly carried on by the New Berne church which undertook it in addition to its own support and the other objects to which it contributed, but there has been 8100 raised in the field for church building and $40 for other pur-po-cs; while the New Berne church has, in addition to what it has paid Mr. Rose, raised $160 far :hurch building. Results a iv coming and it is be lieved that it will only be a question of a lew months vihen their will be four churches in operation, which are likely to become nearer self-sustaining all the time until they become wholly sc. This is the true spirit of missions. Pass nn to others as opportunity permits those blessdigs you have received, and make ihe su ritice that may be necessary. The reward will come. N'otice Notice is hereby given that the Board 1 Commissioners of Craven County, at th. ir meeting on the 1st Monday in Sept., 1N94, passed an order changing the poll ing place at Fulcher's No. 2 Township in said county to Truitt's school house in said Township.

"Plcked-Up" by The Joiirnol Which is Always in "The Swim " When the fire was raging at the bin nine still, and near-by residents wen moving out their household affairs, Ada Basnight, four years old. was solicitous that her doll be sav. d fim fl ames. The waterworks proved of valuable ser vice on the 1 2th for the tiremen. 1" hydrants were brought into service w hn h enabled the firemen to easily apply water from any direction. The time is drawing nigh tor Evangelist W. It. Gales to held the scries of pro tracted meetings in New Berne which h ive been announced for some months. The 7th of Octolxrr is the time for Die meetings to Legin. Tlie steamer Neuse, now on the ways at Berkeley, Va., for her annual over hauling, is expected back the first of next month. The steamer New Berne in the meantime is filling her place. A good and well attended meeting was held at Fort Barnwell, Thursday. Mes-rs Shaw and Thompson engaged in a cusslon of the issues of the campaign with good profit to the cause of Democracy. The fire had one interested spectator yesterday, Sing Lee, the Chinaman. When it broke out he mounted to his house top and from his high perch. a-strad die of the root and leaning against the chimney took in a full observation. Mr. C. W. Keel, of Grant sboro. who has teen attending the medical depart ment of the University and also studying under Dr. F. P. Gates of Pam lico, left by steamer to enter the medical college of Virginia located at Richmond. The Goldsboro Headlight says the army worms are playing sad havoc with the rice crop throughout that section. In many places they have cut the heads off after eating every blade off the stalk. They are reported also as very destructive to hay and fodder. A. correspondent writes us that the Free Will Baptists are having a protract ed meeting at Trent, conducted by Elder Wardon W. Lewis and Elder Britton, and that the Methodist are having a pro tracted meeting at Mill Pond, near Alli ance. There were twenty penitants at the altar Thursday nighL The services are conducted by the pastor of said church, Mr. Jones. Emerson Walker, col., was placed in jail under a hundred dollars bond for stealing chicken from Mr. Benj. Carrawav. He stole twice but the last time Mr. Cai ro way detected, and with the assistance of Others run him down aod captured him. He got back his own chickens and iils-o two others, one alive and one dead stolen from some one else. The Southern Christian, published at Atlanta, Ga, has a flattering notice of Mr. B. II. Melton, who has just finished a successful meeting at Mount Olive, Ky. Mr. Melton is quite a young man, from our neighbor county, Jones, and has al ready given abundant evidence that, be is an honor to his calling, and a worthy sou of North Carolina. R'gularly every fall a shipment of Portsmouth, N. C, corned mullets travels across the whole United States from this city to Oakland, Cal. Thev go o Hon. John A, Stanly, a native of NV Berne who lias never forgotten their de liciousness, though he has resided in Cali fornia for many years. Mr. C. T. Watson has just shiped Mr. Stanly a barrel of tin finest. Joint Discussion, Only an address by Hon. H.G. Shaw . Democratic nominee for Congress, was announced for last night, but Dr. Cyrus Thompson, Third Party candidate for the same office, being in the city 1 la speaking was turned into a joint discus sion. The discussion was opened by Mr. Shaw. He showed up the absurdities ol the Third party very strongly and defied any one to show any good done by any populist in Congress. He showed that on the other hand they bad introduced bills which would have called tor 35 bil lions not millions,but billions of dollars; showed also that Pfefer wanted all taxes upon real estate, a pretty strong reason against any farmer's wanting such a party in power. Mr. Thompson talked on many Ime and covered as much ground as any speaker could have done in the same length of time. He said among things that he had been asked if he would vote for a negro if nominated and that the purpose of the question was to drive off whits men if he said yes, and colored voters if he said no, but he said lie would tell it honestly, that he did not believe the colored men wanted him to vote for them, that with rare exceptions he did not think they were fit to hold office and that for these reasons he would not. As in the daytime before the congres sional convention, Dr. Thompson charg ed elections frauds upon Democrats and predicted revolution unloss thev were stopped. His spoech abounded in wit and was enjoyed even by those who did not agree with him at all. Each speaker ably championed his party, show ing up its merits and the de merits of the other. They were speeches from which voters could learn, but then there were more personalities indulged in by each speaker than we liked to see. A broad discussion of the issues upon a high plane is preferable. Democrats have much to gain from these discussions. Thev bring out ihe truth and present it forcibly to the voter, and with a proper understanding of what the Democratic party is accomplishing in ! the lace ot maniiold obstacles, the victory I that will be achieved in November will 1 be all the more grand and glorious. Not Correctly (Quoted. Ed. Journal: The communication in your paper on September 8th relating to Rev. W. E. West, misquotes me some what. I did not say he was drunk in my barbr shop or that he got drunk there but simply that I bought whiskey nnd beer lor him and put them in a back room for him. I said he threw up but del not say it was Decuuse he was drunk, I hope the writer will slew- on my name and elucidate on somebody else's name. W. II. Siiki'akp. I a 1 1..
