Muj. J. M. Kilgour lectured Lere test
Thursday night on "Good People," to rather
a small audience, on account of the weather,
but the lecture was full of good things. Tbc
lecturer was a little bard ou shams of ail
kinds, and we sorry to say provoked some
censure, but the "galled jade" will wince.
The spring canvas is getting warm and
the candidates are working like beavers.
The colored brother seems to be an import
aut factor in the pending contest aud hold.-*
himself at high figures; It is a fact that in
and around this town. t;;?:e are no lets thau
twenty colored citizens who claim to be
leaders, and tue prices they nsk for their
vote.-; and influence range from five to cue
hundred dollars. The worst of it is. too,tbat
these meu demand and in moet instances re?
ceive their price ; and this in a democratic
county, where, under proper organi?
zation, ihs democratic candidates
could snap tbeif fingers at such de?
mands. So i: goes; enthusiasm :s dead
and everything goes by delimit. We (Jo
sincerely hope that the people will wake up
and see the importance of keeping alive the
party by proper organizaiii/t:, and not allow
the greed of office to smother every other
sentiment. It reaiiy seems that the party,
while condemning the President for his
course, is rushing iieadiong iuto the same
error. Two wrongs wont make one ri^Lt,
ami unless the democracy of Virginia act
zealously for their rights they will rind the
State Jest to tbem. We aro not a croaker,
nor do we ever predict defeat, or believe in
accepting it until forced upon us; but wo
cannot shut our eyes to the fac; that the
democrats of our county are lethargic be?
cause of blasted hopes and disappointed ex?
pectations. They feel that they have been
slaughtered in the house of their friends,
ami have lost zeal in the cause. We hope
they may soon awake and assert their rights
and that in another county election, aye,
indeed, before our May ejection occurs, they
may assert themselves so boldly and so sol?
idly that not candidate fighting under the
banner of democracy shall be compelled to
submit to the bleeding resorted to by tho
political vampires of the opposite party.
The approach of spring has revived the
interest in the new Town Hall, and we have
no doubt work wili soon begin ba it.
The meeting of the M. E. Church .????c\n
Conference here next month, will be an oc?
casion of much interest. Arrangements are
alre ady pjade for the accommodation of the
delegates and their friends, and our people
will spare no t ?brt to make the occasion a
pleasant one.
ThG health of the town is good?better
than usual at this season of the year. Many
weddings have been talked of .-ince Christ
ma.-, but few have occurred. Whether
the prevailing bard times acts as a bear up?
on the matrimonial market or no! wc are
uuabie to say.
We are hoping for p.u early and gooir her?
ring season. Fish is the p<"><:r man's friend,
and a gootl crop al low prices will cause us
to forget many troubles, for a full stomach
maketb the heart glad. Ja Bee.
Mutiny Among Convicts.?a mutiny
took place Monday at the convict camp,
four miles from Asbeville, N. C. For sev?
eral weeks the men have been restive,
complaining of the hard work imposed on
them, and tho alleged Jack of food. During
the week past several hardened criminals
were added to the gang, and on Saturday
night there were evidences of coming
trouble. All day Sunday the men huddled
close together, and refused to talk to the
guards. When dark came, and the men
wcr<- ordered to retire for the night, forty
men refused to do so. Several officers en?
tered ine stockade and tried-to reason with
the men, when they were met with a fusi
Iadc of stones, which the convicts had
quietly laid in, and stored away in a barrel.
The officers retired, closing the gates quick?
ly, and put on a double i.L'izb for the night.
Yesterday morning when the force was
ordered out to work, sixty answered, but
tho forty etil! refused. Tho yunrda, who
only numbered ten, tired over the) heads of
tbejwen, but cries of defiance were the only
reply, the men saying they wero not afraid of
blank cartridges. Then the guard discharged
several volleys directly into the mutinous
group, peppering tbem profusely with bird
shot. This brought them to their senses,
but secured for tbem a place in the hospital,
instead of ou the road. They still declare
that they will not work.
