V EDUCATIONAL VALUE
It may Bb"Be fir amiss to judge that
the average person's estimate of a pub
lie fcbrary, as place where one ean

circulating library ' must have the works
of action, is true. " That many patrons
subscribe in order to get the fiction, is
true. But even putting it in this light,
there to a value to a circulating library,
and no city can be so poor, its citizens
so lacking in educational spirit, as not
to support dvK7'f;S i-""'''?Tr,
Tbe circulating library in this city
has grown into an institution in one
way, and in another " lacks' the 'proper
spontaneus support, that it merits.' A
few, give it attention. A few 'more
lend some financial support. A great
many who could and should give their
assistance, do not ;:" ; J l Z,7
Anything of a character giving value
to a community, calls for the active
and intelligent support of every eiti
sen'The ' New Bern Circulating Li
brary Is of this character.' Next to the
school, it lends its help along educa
tional lines, ; It is a help to' the stu
dent, with Its books of reference. It
gives an educational help to those who
want books on history and, literature.
It helps the literary interests, and
creates the reading habit where it did
not exist, It is the promoter of a bet
. ter citizenship. J,-r km
With mil these, and more could be
added, 'can any citizen fail to see its
necessity, and more, the need of giving
to it a greater strength, if dollars will
do soT v "
A public library ought not to be held
as an object of charity: It is a bene
ficiary to ' the public; . an institution
which ought naturally to draw big ftnian
eial support, without a word from any
one. A first-class theatrical company
will easily take five hundred dollars in
receipts for a' single : night's perform
ance in this city. No one goes from
house to house to sell tickets, to get
people to see the performance. Why
should not the people as gracefully and
easily make a contribution of equal
amount to the Circulating Library, an
institution which will give 365 days and
tights pleasure, to not merely five hun
dred people, but to as many thousands?
It would; be ' a contribution to enrich
the city, as no other wouH. It is an
act which ought to be done at once. "

Statistics are usually dry reading,
but it is only through figuies that an
intelligent conception can be gained on
most subjects. The several depart

are read by comparatively few people,
yet they possess an interest, and read
with the purpose, which should inspire
every citizen, namely, to keep inform
ed on one's local and county affairs,
these figures will acquire an interest
and value to every reader.

STATE POLITICAL ISSUES 7
The voter wbo rerds the State news
papers, and the voter who attends poli
tical speaking, must often question,
are there any real live new political is
sues! which call tor. special consider
ation, of any North Carolinian? Of
course there are many things which
could be presented to the voters, but
what are presented. The democrats
point to the present State conditions,
on all lines. They may not be perfect,
but there is no party in sight which can
do aa well, much less improve.
- The Republicans, under the leader
ship of an ex-U. S. Senator, are pre
senting subjects in this campaign which
sent this same political Senator to the
political bone-yard, years ago, and to
day makes his name a 1y-word of re
proach, and himself a social non-entity,
in this State. '
I As for the rank and fill of the voters,
the democrats see prosperity and safe
government under the present admin
istration,'' If the voter will just con
sider this condition, it will be found of
sufficient livo importance, to call for
his active support and assistance in
keeping up and perpetuating.
I The rank and file of the republicans,
are largely imaginary, as to numbers
The noise made and dust raised by the
Federal office holders sometimec de
ceives. ' But a search for the source of
the noise and dust, reveals the decep
tion. As for reasons, why this Federal
activity in State matters,' it will be
found that the effort is for a showing
for National effect," If there shonld be
a rush of votes to join the State rcpub-
can ranks, there would be greater alarm
among the present State leaders, over
the security of their own political fu
ture, as Federal officeholders; of course,
than fear among democrats. '
The real political situation is simple
in expression, but momentous in effect
of possible results. It is good, safe,
clean administraton of State affairs.
The Democatic party has given it. The
Republicans, under the present cham
pion now leading the office holding
force, 'made every North Carolinian
quake in fear for stability of affairs.
And further to feel the shame when
men sworn to duty, turned and sold out
the State's private matters. No citizen
of .this; commonwealth who loves its
soil, is going to make it possible for
any return of 1896 and 1898. No tax
payer is going to jeopardize his ma
terial interests by accepting issues and
leaders whose history is notorious. No
head of a family is going to risk and
imperil the present stability of the
school and society, by seeking a change
from the present, to conditions which
could bring disaster." ;
Good government in North Carolina
ought to be a live enough matter to
bring every citizen to the polls to sus
tain ft under democratic rule. - Can any
citizen seek an issue more important T

THE EFFETE E. 2T
Unite in -One Great Show to
Illustrate by Actual Itep
, ; . re8entation Some
1" Phases of Their '
', ' .. .... Countries. .
..For the first time New Bernians
were given a chance to witness a Wild
West show yesterday. Trie Pawnee
Bill's historic Wild West'nnd Great Far
East was produced before an immense
audience ' and gave a performance
which has never been seen here before.
There have been circuses here which
have given entire satisfaction in the
manner of its difficult and thrilling acta
yet there was nothing like that produc
ed yesterday. While the variety of the
acta of a circus are greater the merit
of equestrian performances lies immense
ly to the advantage of the Wild West.
It is interesting to note here that the
thrilling acts are not got up wholly for
a show ,but are representations of ac
tual oecurrencea ia the daily lives of
the actors on their home ground. For
instance, the Cossacks whose riding
was undoubtedly the best exhibition of
fearless horsemanship have such prac
tice in their army life and it is that
feature that gives them scuh prestige
in the army of Russia. Tbe cowboys
and Indians on their own western heath
daily indulged in all the acts that were
seen and consequently they attach' a
univue interest to all of the acts inas
much as it depicts a part of their ro
mantic lives, , . ' ' '
As to the performance, it was as
tounding. The feats being mostly done
on horses showed that not only the rid
era had great nerve but that the horses
heve superior . intelligence. Perhaps
thebest exhibition of an animal's precoe
ity was the act of Miss May Lillie with
educated horse Lord Golden. The horse
gave evidence of remarkable training
and it was an unusually interesting
part of the show. ; V -
The Jynching of a horse thief, the
Indian . raid, the rescue by cowboys
the stage coach robbery and all the ex
hibitions of Wild West life were intense
ly realistic The exhibition oflaisso
ing and lariat throwing was a splendid
illustration of the skill with which
these western plain dwellers- pursue
their avocation. Not the least in this
line was the wonderful lariat throwing
by the young boy. Master Jimmie Gar-
ritt. - : .. -::.:-?v,,v:-;-V ,',.?,
" A part, as instructive as it was amus
ing was tbe ethnological feature. In
this show are congregated people from
almost every quarter of the globe. Zu
lus from Africa, Arabs, Japanese, Mex
leans, South Americans, Indians, Ruar
sians and Turks; all contributing to the
success of the show. As an education
al ecterjiripe in gathering all these nat
ionalities together it was the best show
of the kind that ever visited New Bern.
All in all it was a very satisfactory per
formance and one that will be long re
membered with pleasure.

Seventh Annual Exhibition
t . : Special Correspondence J
Greensboro, Oct 9. The promise of
fair, crisp weather this week is making
everybody here predict a record break
ing attendance on the Central Carolina
Fair, which begins today, : This ia the
seventh annual exhibition, and the bad
luck of bad weather, having never
struck it, the fair had always made
money for the association, ii being ex
pended each year in increased premiums,
these improving the quality and variety
of exhibits, until now the claim is being
made, that possibly excepting the State
Fair at Raleigh, there -is none other
that approaches the Greensboro Fair in
agricultural and mechanical excellence.
This year, while there will be a mid
way, every gambling device has been
strictly cut out, and the experiment of
seeing whether the thousands who will
attend, will be satisfied at not being
practically robbed of their rroney, will
be tried in good faith. One man yester
day declared that he, and many others
like him, went to such places prepared
to lose $5 or $10 In chancing the many
gambling ' schemes, and without this
privilege of an exciting risk and loss of
some ready cash, he thought the attend
ance at future fairs would badly fall
off. One fakir, who sold paddles, the
lucky number winning a canary bird,
was denied a permit Saturday, so it
looks as if the midway will be a strictly
moral show, sho' null. But there are
at least C5 trotting, pacing and running
horses stalled out there for the lacec,
and this feature promises to be a spe
ciality durkg the week. .'.'''
