UNFAIR TO McLEAK

«f.9LW. McLean h& been to
Elizabeth City- and then made a alk

after this modest effort, such as Mr
McLean is always contert to make, up'
spake Han. Ike M. Meekins, being also

on account of his submergence in the

Well, there, is ao accounti" k for
taste in the matter of associates, but
we must seriously objet* to the un
fairness displayed by the Independent
ir comparing Mr. McLean as an oratcr
to Col. Meekins. It is quite unfair
"to take a modest man like Mr. Mc-
Lean, careful of speech, and deliber
a'e of expression as is the manner o
one who expects to stand by what he
says, and compare him with Mr.
Meekins. It is quite a well know:i fact
that Col. Meekins is I he greatest

all knew quite well that if the gover
norship is to follow the merit of ora
tory, then Col. Meekins is n«e only en
- titled to a life tenatry, but to the
right of devisement.
Col. Meekins as an oru'or has no
bounds. Neither time nor spare can I
circumscribe him. His shortest ser.-
tences twist and squirm and choitle
and.whcrtle and surge and splurge
and dazzle, and blakzie, a-d juar and,
soar ami double and bubble, like »he

It is positively sinful to compare Mr.

Like beauty, charm is a eempamtivt
