A Faithful Registrar Killed.
By PUtal Ball and Human Blood
BrikUw Seek to OTerride Law
nnd Kearaln Pawer.
The News and Observer has nearly a
column and a half special from Elizabeth
City in regard to the murder of John E.
Brothers, registrar of election in Salem
township by James W. Wilcox, the Re
publican ex-sberift, because Mr. Brothers
refused him access to the registration
books. WUcox is an active Republican
politician whose zeal has often brought
upon him the censure ol his opponents.
The young man kilted was a first. cu-in
ofthewileof Hon. Thos. G. Skinner, a
young man between twenty-five and thiny
years of age and an industrious, que..
law-abiding citizen universally .respected
by all who knew him and was never
known to be otherwise than respectful to
and considerate of al! who hod dealings
with him. His needless and trag c death
has shocked the community, even the
w hole Elizabeth City section, and there is
a great deal more feeling than appears on
the surface of things. It has stirred Pasl
qnotank connty as it has not been stirred
in manv a day and it should arouse the
whole State. The day has past when
any party can hope to benefit itself by
terror zing methods.
Every voter lias the right to see that
his own name is on the registration book
N i has no right to examine i; otherwise.
A itcox wanted to examine the books for
himself and demand certificates of re.
nioval for whom he ebose. The registrar
very properly refused to let him see the
list, and refused to issue any
certificate except lo those who
applied for them in person. There
upon Wilcox made himself very obnox
ious and annnoying and refused to leave
when ordered to do so although he was
in, the home of his registrar, and when at
last .Brothers, provoked beyond endurance,
anxe, Wilcox attempted to draw his pis
tol, but before he could use it Brothers
got bis cane and struck at him. Wilcox
fired three times, the last shot penetrating
the abdomen and proving fetal. Wilcox
eats up a claim that he did not fire until
be was being beaten and was tearful for
his life. He was arrested, tried before
three magistrates. in the presence of six
hundred spectators and committed to jail
without bail on the charge of murder to
await trial at Superior court.
An effort will be made to get him out
under bail by haleas corpus proceed-1

and the Proprietor.
Just before shipping his exhiuit to the
State Fair Mr. K. E. liege, the luiicy
poultry and pet animal dealer who is pre
paring to move to New ISeme. placed his
stock on exhibition to give the people oi
Winston-Salem an opportunity to l" -t
parting alimpse nt 'Frank I icj. pel ."
Two thousand, three hundred mid twen
ty one people paid each their ten cents tor
the privilege. This fives an idea of the
extent to which Mr. liege's collet tinn is
appreciated in his old home.
Mr. Heae takes his pets from the North
Carolina State Fair to the Fair at Macon,
Ga., and they will remain there until
brought on to New Berne. Mr. liege is
likely to get established here about the
20th of next mouth. 11 is residence is
nearly completed as are al- tlw yards
and houses for the rearing of ms buds
Mr. Hege has made a very favorable
impression upon nil of our people who
have had the pleasure of meeting him.
He is unmistakably a very pleasant and
courteous Christian gentleman. One of
our citizens who knew him well in his
present home speaks in very high terms
of his character, his love nnd devotion to
the special line of business he has marked
out lor himself, and the success that is at
tending him in it. Such men are a
decided acquisition to any community
and we nre pie csed that the advantages of
New Berne as viewed by him on occa
sionsofhis coming to. and exhibiting at
the East Caroliua Fair has led to hi cast
ing in his lot among as.
And we consider too, tlint in his re
moval to the citv, Mr. tfee himself is
fortunate iu having fcr his partner such a
man as our esteemed, well-informed citi
zen, Mr. Win. Dunn, vh coupling enter
prise with prudence, has made a marked
success ol his affairs, ami who is himsed'
not only a tanner and tru -kei but a
poultry fancier of no mean experience
and a sound, practical, level-headed busi
ness man with it all. We look for the
poultry, pet animal and bull-frog farm of
Messrs. F. E. Hece & Co., in connection
with Mr. Dunn's truck farming to be oi,e
of the most prominent and interesting en-
terprises carried on at this place.
KOAXOKE COLONY MEMORIAL.
The Meeting: of the Asaoclation In

We gave notice of the meeting of the
Roanoke Colony Memorial Association.
From the News and Observer we take
the following account of what was done:
The stockholders ot the Roanoke
Colony Memorial Association met yester
day afternoon in the pa-lors of lhe Var
borough Hotel. Of the 156 stockholders
of the Association about 100 were re
presented. Amnii1.' those present were
R. S. Bi.t,le. of Raleigh; Mai. Graham
Daves, of Xaw Berne; Mis. R. R. Cotten,
of Pitt count- Mrs. Turner, of Raleigh;
Dr. Bassett, of Durham; Messrs. De. L.
Haywood, Pulaski Cowper, of Raleigh.
Much enthusiasm was manifested and all
present felt that the movement which this
association has started will be a great
One of the duties, a snd one of the
Association was to elect a successor of the
late President and founder of the orga
nization, Prol. Edward Graham Daves.
Maj. Graham Daves, a brother of the
deceased President, was chosen to this
place. The other officers are Mr. W. D.
Pruden, vice-President; Dr. J. S. Bassett.
Secretary nd Treasurer ar;d Bt Rev.
Jos. B. Cheshire, Mrs. R. R. Cotten,
Messrs. W. II. Battle and Johu G.
Wood, Dr. R. B. Drane and Dr. W. P.
By-laws were adopted which, with the
constitution, were ordered to be printed
for distribution among the members.
A committee was appointed to draw
up an appropriate tribute to the memory
of Prof iklward Graham Daves.
It was found that the tinanees of the
association are in good condition, and
steps will be taken at once looking to
ward the lescue and preservation of the
site oi the old City ot Raleigh.
This is the first regular meeting ot the
association in the Stale. It is appropri
ate that it should be in this city. The
message that the present City of Raleigh
sends to the old cilv of Raleigh is that fJbe
old she must be preserved. The general
result of vesterdav's meeting was that this
is an assured fact.
President Cleveland has not written
any letter endorsing Senator Hill as was
stated to some extent. Sendor Hill's
lriends are bitter against the President
and the New York Republicans are elec
ted. All hope of Democratic harmony is
practically abandoned. Senator Faulk
ner has quit the work of conciliation and
gone home in disgust.

When Grant was President he was ac
customed every morning to walk down

POILTKV AT THE STATE FAIR.
The Largest and Rest Exhibit Ever in
the State Falr-The Largest Assort

From the News and Observer's account
of the Fair we take the following aboui

The most crowded building was
what is known as the Main Exhibition
Hall. There North Carolina seemed to
have come togethei. It was simply
packed and the people could scarcely pass
one another, and all se emed lo le wend
ing their way through toward the poultry
show at the end 400 yards away through
the long building.
The poultry show has b en rtfi-rred lo
before but ' yesterday, it was on every hp
as the most remarkable lllustottiop ol
what the State could do of anvthiui on
the grounds. ' ,
There were some exhibits from outside1
States, but in the main they were from
North Carolina, and it is no exaggeration
to 9tate that the sight was simply amaz
From New Berne, probably, came the
largest assortment. Many stopped to
look at the silver and gulden' pheasants.

Rocks, Dark Brahmas, Light Rrahmas,
Buff Cochins, White Leghorns. Indian

Then in the same department were the
Lop-Eared rabbits, English and Maltese
rabbits, Himalayan tahbits, all from
North Carolina yards, the Abyssinian
Guinea pig, geese of all kinds, white and
Just around the corner from these, was
the Occonneechee poultry exhibit of Col.
Julian S. Carr, which was refreshing to
look at. The fowls were in prime order
and splendidly marked both as to size and
limbs. There were thirty-one wire coops
of them, and ihe white turkevs in the Oc-
conneechee exhibit were the finest speci-
mens ot towts tnat 1 nave ever seen
There were choice breeds of dogs acoss
the aisle, including the St Bernard, set
ters, pointers and others.
The poultry show from the Occo
neechee farm is one of the finest exhibi
tions that has ever , been displayed at this
or any other fair. 'The-.long rows of cages
are filled with as fine specimens as exists
in the realm of birds. The proud roosters
sound tbe loud acclaim of their high
breeding, by momentary crowing, as tbe
thousands of visitors pa$s ,1'rom cage to
cage. In these crows there seems to be a,
little suspicion that the roosters knoW
that their popular owner was one of the
real builders of the fair, and that they are
at liberty to crow as much as they please

only a part, but a great big part, and no

The Riverside Kennells, Poultry and
Pet Stock Farm stretches its magnificent
exhibit across the western end of the
Poultry Department. Messrs. F. K.
Hege fe Co., late ot Salem, but who are
I now established at New Berne, are the
proprietors. This is one ot the finest in
dividual exhibits of Brahmas, Cochins,
Plymouth Rocks, Langshans, Games
and Wyandottes, of gold and silver, nnd
Lady Amherst Pheasants, and of St. Bcr
nard's, English pugs, rabbits, fancy pi
geons, guinea pigs and other pet anima's
ever shown in this or any other State Fair.
Messrs. Hege & (Jo's . establishment is the
largest and most elaborate of its kind in
the kouth. if not in tie country, anil an
hour can be spent looking at their wonder

and will pass you from row to row and
from cage to cage, showing auo explain

mens. Col. O. R. Smith, of Henderson, passed
along and said that the President of the
Fair wasn't doing much crowing, but
there were three thousand roosters down
