RALEIGH, N. C, OCTOBER 31, 1896.
ABOUT PEOPLE YOU KNOW.
Miss Mamie G. Stanlev loft last' week
for Scotia, at Concord, N. C.
Yes, Rusee'l will carry the State by
nearly 45,000 plurality. This is certain.
Mr. G. W. Macklin in the real estate
business, and also collector in the City of
Durham.
No true friend of the Republican party
will scratch a single name on the ticket.
That is sure.
Mr, Alex. McDonald, of Apex, passed
through here this week en route for Clay
ton to live.
If this State can he carried for McKin
ley it will bring prosperity and wealth
within her borders. .
Hon. W. F. Strowd will be elected by
a handsome majority just as sure as the
election day comes.
Mr. and Mr?. Wesley Emerson, of
Greerjsboro, visited the Durham Fair and
this city a few days ago.
Mrs. Daniel Jones gave a reception at
her residence cn E. Edenfcon St. a few
nights ago in honor of Mr. George L.
Lee.
The Democrats tried all they knew how
to work the color-line racket two years
ago and it failed; and it will fail this
time.
Mr. George L. Lee left the city a few
days ago to accompany Dr. P. A. Hubart
on his campaign lectures through (he
State.
Mrs. P. S. Smith has been spending a
while at Holly Springs with relatives and
friends. "She was accompanied by her
little baby.
When you hfar a colored man say he
is not for J. II. Young, mark him at
once. The Djinocrp ts would give a right
good sum to defeat Young.
The colored man was encouraged to
register this time because he knew that
under the new election law hisvote would
be counted honestly as cast.
The Democrats know they will be de
feated at the polls on November 3, hence
their cry and frothing at the mouth
about fraud and imported negro voters.
Mrs. W. P. Norcott and Mr. Hubert
Edmond's sister, of Greenville, were in
the city last week visiting their friends
and also attending the Fair. They re
turned home Saturday.
We love Daniel L. Russell for the ene
mies he has made. He made them by
fighting the Democrats in the interest of
the Repub'ican party, good government,
and political freeoom.
The Democrats call the "HavFeeder" (a
paper published- by Mr. S. Oiho Wilson
here in the city) a dirty Republican sheet.
It is because the "Hayte'der" tells the
public of Democratic miaiule and ras
cality. We were pleased to meet at the Fair at
-HDuritam-lIiv-aiid Mis. W C-Caldwell,
Mr. G. W. Trice and family. Wm. Mc-

H. O'Kelly, and other Raleighites took
in the Durham Fair, Thursday two weeks
ago.
Prof. F. W. Dixon made several able
speeches in Vance county a few days

co-operation. Prof. Dixon is a brilliant
and fearless young man, and he never
pulls back from going wherever duty
calls him.
Revs. J. J. Worlds, A. B. Vincent, W.
A. Jones, E. B. Blake, Dr. N. F. Roberts,

course of erection until it is completed.
The work is progressing very rapidly.
Mr. Pou, in his speech at the court
house on Friday night two weeks ago,
made a Btrong and pitiful plea to the col
ored people for tLeir votes. The boys
say, ''Nay, we have a candidate of our
own, in the person of the Hon. W. F.
Strowd, whom we will cast our votes
for."
Shame! &hame! on the set of colored
men here in the city who are trying to
defeat the only man of the race that is on
the countv ticket for the Legislature
James H. Young. These gentlemen must
know that if they could succeed in
defeating Young, a Democrat would
come in.
Sheriff Rigsby, of Durham County,
has made au excellent and very capable
officer. He has served his people (the
whole people) faithfully during the two
years. Sheriff Rigsby is fair and square
and deals justice out to every man. No
cleverer m-n has ever been elected Sher
iff in the State. His deputies are all
clever and nice. The good people of
Durham Cjunty will not turn loose a good
thing, but will re-elect Sheriff Rigsby.
Dr. P. A. Hubart, of Brooklyn, N. Y.,
who is connected with Livingstone Col
lege as its Financial Secretary, arrived in
our city a few days ago eent'here by the
National Republican Committee to give
Republican lectures through our State.
He was sent by Chairman Holton to be
gin his work at Concord. Dr. Hubart is
a man of fine address, highly. cultured,
and ia a ready and able speaker. He is a
gentleman of high distinction.
The News and Observer of two Sun
' days ago said at the head of an editorial,
. "Shall we stand idly by and see Mr. Rus
sell illegally elected Governor of thi9
State?" No; but the Democrats will
stand quietly by and see Judge Russell
inaugurated after he has been legally
elected. And they will also have the
pleasure (?) to live for four years under
Governor Russell'" administration, and
see duties performed and executed legally.
The Baptist State Educational and Mis
sionary Convention in its twenty-ninth
annual session met in Providence Bap
tist Church, Greensborr, Oct. 20th. The
business of this- body was of very great
i m nortance. and a larcre numher of t.rnm.
inent Baptists from all over the State

President, with his usual ease and dig.
nity, presided overthia grand body. The
' Convention will meet in 1897 in Char-Jotte.
Now is the time to subscribe to the Ga
zette. Mr. Willie Hill has been sick with
chills for several days.
Mr. A. D. Foushee, N.C, epent sev
eral days here last week."

The Colored State Fair will be open on
the 10th of November and will run to the

hibits. The premium list of the Eighteenth
Annual Fair of the North Carolina In
dustrial Association is out and being dis
tribuced. The All-Star Dramatic Concert Troupe
will render their great play, "A Pair of
Spectacles," very soon. Let everybody
turn out.
Capt. C. A. Cook, Col. R. M. Douglass,
Mr. D. H, Gill, Rev. W. R. Slade and
Hon. A. R. Middleton were in the city
last Monday.
Prof. A. B. Vincent returned here
Monday of this week from Rockingham,
where he has been attending the Pee Deo
Association.
Rev. Spruill passed through the city

labt week to 'spend the winter with her
son,- W. S. Mitchell. Master Pearley
Hembay, her grandson, came with her.
Miss Lovie Thomas.-vrho.bas been re-,
siding at Aberdeen, died Sundaj". Her
remains were brought to Raleigh Mon
day for interment. May she rest in peace.
Every colored man, woman and child
should b interested in their S'ate Fair.
It should have the hearty co operation of
the entire race in the State in order to
have success.
We know of some colored men in the
city who are using Democratic money to
try to defeat J. H. Young. Isn't it a
shame! You would be surprised to know
who they are.
Prof. F. W. Dixon was in the city Mon
day en route to Henderson, where he
spoke Tuesday night of this week. He
was recalled to Vance county by Chair
man Holton to recanvass the county.
Prof. J. H. M. Butler said to us one day
lift week, whi'e we were visiting the A.
and M. College at Greensboro, that th
school was in a splendid condition, that
its attendance had improved nearly a
hundred per cent.
The colored people of the State could
have one of the grandest Fairs here this
year if they would unite and every one
take part in pressing it on to success. It
is to the race's interest to show up what
it can do along this line.
Certainly the men who expect to mak9
their living off of the negroes here in
town by their practice as professional
men are trying hard to beat Jim Young
and turn a Democrat in. Jim is the only
colored man on the ticket, too.
The "tall" man from East Raleigh is
trying to employ men (colored men) to
scratch Republicans on the county ticket.
The only pay he offers is beer and whis
key. This man is very officious in try
ing to defeat Jim Young. Watch this
man on the day of election.
Misses Lou Mitchell, Minnie Wither
spoon, Rev. and Mrs. W. A. Jones,
Messrs. Wm. Wallace, H. Hunter and
S. H. Towns left here last Monday for

Durham Colored Fair Magnificent Ex
- Dibits.
We visited the Fair at Durham and
was delighted to find the numerous ex
hibits so nicely arranged in their differ
ent departments.
Among the exhibitors we mention the
work done in the manual training de
partment of Durham Graded School,
which was ,a great credit indeed. Miss
N. C. O'Daniels was in charge of this
exhibit. A magnificent (ilk quilt by Miss
Nannie Faucette attracted attention.
The display of the Durham Drug Co. was
quite creditable. The silk quile by Mrs.
Lindsay Faucette was a "beauty."
The farm products exhibited by Dr. A.
M. Moore proved him a farmer of ei-
Eerience. The Alamance Counjy ex
i bit was splendid. A McKinley hat,
made by Miss Mary L. Fitzgerald. Mrs.
Dr. A. Moore, some very fine hand-work.
Miss Mamie Macklin, a handsome table
spread. A beautiful silk quilt,' by Miss
Blonnie Williamson, of Louisburg, N. C.
Mrs. Allen Eaton, a fine hand-painted
photo of her husband, Rev. A. Eaton;
also some other fine paintings.
A collection of African relics, pre
sented to the Durham Graded School
three years ago by Mr. James Trice when
he visited this country. This exhibit
was also under Miss O'Daniel's care.
We are informed that the Fair was a
grand success. We were pleased to see
the white people take snch . an interest
in the Fair. It was also largely attended
f by the colored people.
Messrs. Merrick, Moore, Macklin, and
the rest of the officers, and also their aids,
deserve great credit for their grand ef
fort to have a Fair. '

our people last Wednesday night. Mr.
Caldwell is working up quite an intert st
in our town. ,
Rev. J. B. Smith visited his family in
Newbern last week.
Quaker Drill, given by Mr. William

Mrs. Martha Dancy and Mrs. Catharine
Matthewson, of Tarboro, passed through
last week en route to Durham.
Hon. J. M. Langston, of Petersburg,'
-made a routing speech to our people last
Saturday. Much good was done.
We are glad to know that Mr. Carter
Burwell is able to be out again after a
severe attack of fever.
We are glad to know that Miss Ara
Coble is improving from her recent at
tack. What about the Parochial School this
term in our town? Is it possible we are
to be without anv school whatever.
Mr. Haywood Mills went to Wilson last
week. Of course it was lonely to Little
Raleigh.
It will soon be McKinley day. Have
you done your duty? If not, why not?
We are glad to know that Mrs. I. D.
Hargett is much improved.
Edgecombe should do her duty this
year. Let the watchword be "Victory."
We heard a Democrat say last Monday
that unless they could capture Edge
combe, Halifax and Northampton coun
ties they could not carry North Carolina.
The Republicans should take warning.

Tarboro Flashes.
Tarboro, N. CY, Oct. 12th, 1896.
After a protracted iMne?8, the many
friends of Mrs. Geo. H. White are glad to
see her out again.
Mrs. Wm. Williams took in the cen
tennial on her way to Connecticut to
visit her sister, Mis. Frontis Williams.
Miss Georgia A. Mathewson left for
Durham on the 10th, on a visit to her
cousin, Mrs. Dr. A. M. Moore. A pleas
ant surprise is in ttore for Mrs. Moore, in
the shape of an unexpected visit from
another very dear relative of this place.
Mr. George Mathewson is doomed to
keep bacheloi's hall for a few days.
Prof . H. M. Hypsher is in the "Baro"

Miss Mamie D Faithful is spending a

him a speedy rcevery.
Miss Esther B. Eatoor is" on- the sick
list.
Mrs. C. C. Forbes was called home on
account of the illness of a friend, to the
regret of her many friends here.
It was reported on the streets of Tar
boro Friday , that the Democratic candi
date for Governor, Cy. Watson, had been
taken down, and the . Democratic vote
pledged for Guthrie. If it is true, it has
not been given to the public, but this
writer will not be surprised at any com
bination that the Democrats make or at
tempc to make. They will do anything
to beat Russell. Notwithstanding, Rus
sell will be the next Governor of North
Carolina. But we must say l hat politics
make strange bed fellows nowadays.
Don't forget in whooping up McKinley
for President, to whoup up all ttie Re
publican nominees for Congress. Don't
forget that Congress makes the laws; the
President only executes them. For that
reason Bryan asks the Democrats not to
tie his bands with a Republican Congtess
in case he is elected.
Snap-Shoter is sick this week.
Mrs. Caesar Forbes is quite 6ick at this
writing.
Mr. Mathew J. Bryan, the erstwhile
gallant of the "Boro," has but one girl
on hand now. The other has gone to
school.
Every father should vote for the school
tax on the 3d. We must educate or be
slaves for those who do educate. Intel
ligent mind is the controlling force in
this world of ours. Educate, and we
need have no fears of election laws. Ed
ucate and the race problem will settle it
self. There is no such thing as keeping
highly educated people down.
We are sorry to note that Mrs. P. L.
Baskerville continues quite ill at her
home in Hilma.
Miss Maria A. Jackson is spending
some time at Lawrence, the guest of Mrs.
Elbert Bryan.
Prof. Bjoker T. Washington, in these
days of political excitement, gets his
share of newspaper comment. Hear what
the Brooklyn Life says of him : ""There
is no mau in the country better qualified
to talk about Democracy and education
than Booker T. Washington, who opened
the year's work at the Institution on Wed
nesday night, with an address on the
subject. Mr, Washington is the most
eloquent negro fince Frederick Douglas,
but he is something more than a orator
a man of sound sense, who has been able
1 1 carry his own ideas into execution.
He saw that the future of his race de
pendtd lor some years, if not for eome
generations, upon their mastery of handi
crafts. He believed that the so-called
laziness of his people was because they
believed labor to be degrading, just as
their owners had done in the days of
slavery, and that by cultivating idleness
they were approaching the standard of
white "gentlemen." Ha thought he
could root out that pernicious notion by
teaching them mechanical trades which
require intelligence, tnd bring a rate of
pay which nf gro laborers could not com
mand. Train ng in the handicrafts is
the corner-fttone of his institution at
Tuskegee, whkh is the most famous
school in the S uth, except General Arm
strong's, at Hampton. Mr. Washington
has the courage to teach that his race
will be respected just as fast as it amounts
to something, and that the social position
of a negro who owns a two-story house
wiih no mrrfgag9 thereon will take care
of itself. His career justifies the truth
of his doctrines. Mr. Washington is one
of the most popular speakers that comes
to Brooklyn."
Tne above extract shows where the
negro must inevitably put in his work,
to be felt in the affairs of this nation. At
present the uplifting forces of the race
are lost eight of in the furore of the
mighty "soap-grease" campaign.
- Court is in session and the town is
crowded.

The Tall Man From East Raleigh.
The "tall" man from the East is so
anxious for J. H. Young's defeat lhat in
street arguments he renders himself
somewhat obnoxious as well as very offi
cious. This "tall" man is the very man
who opposed our Republican nominee
for County Clerk a few years ago. This
opposition comes with very poor grace
from a man who is a standing candidate
every two years for the same position.
Hon. J. E. Fowler Misrepresented.
Clinton, N. C, Oct. 18, 1896.
I notice in the News and Observer of
the 16th instant, that I am represented
as being in the mpeting of the committee
recently held in Raleigh, and that I held
a proxy and favored Democratic and
Populist C"Nm. 1 held no proxy and
took no pel further than to harmon

Trying to Ealse the Color Line. -
We inform Mr: F. B. Arendell of the
News and Observer, that if it be true that
20,000 more negroes have registered than
ever before, it is due to the fact that the
election law parsed by the Republican
and Populist Legislature made it possi
ble for every honest and legal elector to
register, and thev have registered. Un
der your rotten Democratic election law
you were able to prevent the registering
of a great number of colored voters. By
other and various methods your party
was able, under that election law, to
prevent from voting and to count out
hundreds and thousands of negro voters
on voting day.
Your weak effort, Mr. Arendell, and
the weakne-s of other Democrats -and
Democratic newspapers, to raise the color
line, is simply an old, rotten pile of trash
you have bad the laboring class of white
men stumbling and falling dver for eigh
teen or twenty years. The working and
farming whites came to tha conclusion
two years ago that the Democratic party
bad been fooling them long enough with
that old, played-out stuff. It's a "boom
erang" you and your party are trying to
play now, since you failed to perfect fu
sion with the Populists after your State
Committee's two months' prayer and beg
ging them to fuse with you.
W. S. Mitchell.
Hon. Oscar J. Spears.
Editor of The Gazette.
Hon. Oscar J. Spears, a Republican
Elector Slate-at-Large, held an audience
of 2,000 spell-bound in Craven county
court house, October 22d. The gentle
man wa3 ably introduced by Mr. J. L.
Habn, chairman of Republican Execu
tive Committee, and alo the Republican
nominee for Sheriff. The speaker spoke
for two long hours, and during this en
tire time Republicans were fed on Repub
licans heavenly manna, while Democrats
were given sure cure pills. The speaker
was interrupted frequently by tumultu
ous plaudits of applause.
The speaker reviewed the record of the
Democratic party and compared it with
the brilliant record of the Republican
party. Right here the speaker grew elo
quent and the crowd went wild over the
beauty of language and his matchless
force of argument for sound money and
good government, a free ballot and a fair
count.
Here he mentioned the name of the
nation's choice for President, and at once
the house went wild in applause for sev
eral minutes. He then mentioned the
name of ex-Judge D. L. Russell, and the
audience gave vent to their feelings in a
manner to guarantee and warrant the
election of Mr. Ru:sell Governor of North
Carolina.
At the close of one of the most logical
and unanswerable speeches ever delivered
in our ppacious court house, Cape. Robt.
Hancock, nominee of the party for the
-L5ris'ature, stepped forward and propo
sed three cheers for the Nation's choice,
ex Govermr Wm. McKinley, for Presi
dent; ex Judge Russell for Governor;
Senator J. C. Pritchard to succeed him
self, and for a general Republican land
slide throughout. This proposal was con
curred in by the waving of. four thou
sand hands going up and two thousand
hats and haukercbiefs. J. H. 3.
An Echo from Ileanfort ' County lion.
Zeb. Vance Walter at Washington,
j. c.
The Eat is aglow with political fire.
Old Beaufort county will out-do herself
in the coming election. Never was the
Republican party in better trim for bat
tle. The speech of that brained states
man, a&tute lawyer aud stalwart Repub
lican, Hon. Zeb. Vance Walser, filled
every one with political enthusiasm, and
its influence is seen and feit everywhere.
Mr. Walser went for the Democratic
party with gloves off, and showed it up
as the party of broken promises, etc.
That great Republican leader and
prince of politicians of North Carolina,
Hon. D. L. RuRsell, is Lideed popular
"down here, and Beaufort county will do
what she has not done in many years
give him and the rest of the State and
National ticket a handsome majority.
McKinley Hobart, gold and protection, is
our watchword, and our people were
never more hopeful and determined.
The registration of our forces is larger
than ever before, and has surprised the
enemy so. that confusion reigns in their
camps. Hon. Harry Skinner, the fusion
candidate for Congress, will be elected
by a large majority, while everything
points to Republican success. I do not
mean to say that the battle has been
fought and the victory won we are now
in the hotest of the fray and the victory
will depend on our labors through the
campaign and our loyalty to the polls.
Yours for success,
L. R. Randolph.

Death of Mrs. Jordan Crndup.
At Kittrell, N. C, October 7th, 1896,
Sister Pennie Crudup, the wife of Mr.
Jordan Crudup, of Kittrell, and the
mother of J. D. Crudup, of this city,
departed this life at her residence. She
was faithful and dutiful to her church,
and a true worker in the Woman's Home
Mission Society. On Friday before her
d.-ath, the members of said Sxjiety met
at the residence of Sister Crudup, and
after singing eome beautiful hvmns.
prayer was offered up by Sister Malicia
Tharring'on. Sister Pennie got very
happy. She said she would never meet
them again on this earth, but wanted them
to meet her in heaven. She died in her
5l8t year, and leaves a devoted mother,
husband, six boys and four girls. The
community has lost one of its best neigh
bors and the church one of its truest
members. She was buried with the
honors of the W. H. M. Society, of which
she was a member.
All her children were around her bed
side when she breathed her last, except
her married daughter Lizzie, and her
eldest eon, J. D. Crudup, who were tele
graphed for; but they arrived just a few
hours too late to bid her good-bye. May
she rest in peace.
The Second Annual Holiness Convoca
tion of North Carolina, Held at Ox
ford, Sep. 27th to Oct. 4th, 180G.
The first service was held at the Second
Baptist Church Sunday at 5 a. m. At
tnat early hour there was a good attend
ance. At eleven o'clock the introductory
sermon was preached to a large number
of attentive hearers. Text, John x. 10.
The sermon was an able one, and was
lisiened to with much interest. The 3
o'clock service was devoted to Bible read
ing, showing the Bible order 'of sanctifi
cation and holiness, and how to obtain it.
The Convocation was a surprise to many,
as it had been so badly misrepresented;
but finding it made up of noble-heai ted
Christian men and women, occupying
every position in the churches of the
various denominations, from the layman
to presiding elder, the people willingly,
fell in line. "It has seldom been seen so
many different denominations working
so harmoniously together as in this case."
Acts iv. 31, 33.
The object of the' Convocation is to
build up and strengthen Christianity and
not to tear down nor injure any church
or people. We had some very able ser
mons preached. The Binging was good
and captivating. , The songs were in
spiring. The business meetings were in
perfect harmony with the several denom
inations, working together for the pro
motion of - holiness. Not a jar. No not
one, seem to have had anything in his
heart but perfect love toKvard both God
and man. We stayed in Oxford eight
days, and the meeting' was well attended,
and large crowds continued to come. At
the close of the Convocation we left Ox

THE PROPER
THING TO DO
Especially in buying "Food is to deal
with a responsible concern, one that you
are sure will sell you nothing that is not
good; whose prices are reasonable, and
stock always fresh and up to date.
The above description, with all due
modesty, we think fits our establishment.
We have food for the Epicure, for the
Dyspeptic, food for all classes and con
ditions. Polite and intelligent salesmen to show
and sell you; accommodating porters
and drivers to deliver to you.
All goods warranted and promptly de
livered. .The finest Flour, Butter, Coffee and
Tea our specialties.
