The election is over and we won a glo
rious victory. It took hard work and
lots of it to win this victory. The Ga
zette did a big share of the work, and
it should come in now for a handsome
and liberal patronage from our Republi

A. E. Iloiton and C. A. Reynolds, at

a grand affair, and we regret that it was
not in our power to attend.
We are informed that some Democrats
are boycotting barber-shop and other
places of business where colored men are
owners, and who voted the Republican
ticket. It is a small thing in any Demo
crat to undertake to boycott a man's
business just because he exercised the
rights of a free American citizen.

Henderson and Weldon last week, and

We bespeak lor him the indulgence of
our many subscribers.
We regret that we were unable to go
to Louibburg laso week and address the
people of Franklin county at their great
celeorai ion, but the let ter in v iting us came
to our ollice in our absence, and was nit
seen by us until the afternoon alout five
o'clock of the day of the celebration. It
would have betn a pleasure to us to hive
been there to rejoice with the loyal Re
publicans of Fianklin. However, we
are glad that the Gazette was repre
sented in the person of Mr. W. S. Mitchell,
who spoke for us.
Looking over the names of those who
might be entitled to the United States
District Attorneyship, we don't know of
any who deserve it more than Hon. C. M
Bernard, of Greenville, and Hon. Charles
A. Cook of Warrenton. They have done
valuable and ardent work for the party.
In the person of Mr. Bernard Eastern
Carolina hasn't a more active Republican
than he is, and his services cannot be
over estimated. There are many others
in the State who have done equilly as
good service, but why not let the East

If any Democrat was fool enough,
prejudiced enough, and bo very rash as
to make such a vow as the above, we are
sorry there is not any way to compel him

anyway. See !

If it is intended to have the charters of

in every other county, who voted lost
their vote for McKinley and Russell, ard

this fact. The Republican headquarters

you hear that?
While on a visit to Wilmington last
week we paid a short cll to the Wiliiston
and Peabody Graded Schools, of which
Miss Mary W. Howe and M s. Susie J.
Dudley are Principals, respectively, and,
as UHual, found th;'8e schools doing great
work in the educational line. Theneabli
Principals are assisted by an efficient
corps of teachers.
A prominent lawyer, and who is one
of the best jurists in the State, remarked
to us the otr.er day while in Louisburg,
the fpllowing words of praiseof tr e Ga
zette: " The Gazette is a splendid pa
per; I read it witu much interest, and I
like it very much indeed. It did more
real, solid and gocd campaign work in
the last two fights than any other State
paper, white or black. It has been a true
friend to fusion.
The efficient and systematic manner in
which the leadrsof the Republican party
managed the campaign and superintend
ed the election iu the county of Lnoir,
should be highly appreciated, and espe
cially the interest and work done t j eU ct
Hon. Geo. H. White to Congress. We
believe Mr. White will not be unmindful
of their services, and when there is any
thing at his hands to be given. It will
remember those who stood faithfully by
him from beginning to finish.
When Senator TJtley, a Populist, of
Wake, wass pres-ed by the Press-Visitor,
a Democratic newspaper, to know if he
would vote for Pritcbard, he simply said:
'It is not neces-ary that you should
know." If every Republican bhould have
given a like answer to the queries of
Democratic reporters since the election,
everything would be in much better
shape than it is. One of our troubles all
along has been that some leading Repub
licans are too easily flattered by Demo
cratic reporters into saying things that
often had better been left unsaid.
We met a number of ministers return

Our athletics are being carefully look

In company with the Excelsior Band
of our town, we attended the grand Mc
Kinley and Russell celebration under the
management of Prof. C. W. Battle at
Bittleooro last Friday. It was one of
tne largest celebrations we have ten for
many years, and the best conducted. Af
ter parading the stree s for tne hour or
more with mu4 and flags and decora
tions suitable for the' occasion, tbe band
with about fifty mounted marshalls
marched to the ppeakeis stand where
Prof. C. W. Battle after a short and pa
triotic speech introduced Mr.' W. L. Per
son who epoke for about twenty minutes
in ringing, tones of the glorious victory
that we have just won. At this juncture
the crowd weit wild wuh enthusiasm,
and many whire people seemed to enjoy
it also. In clo-ai g the grand aid glori

Wales Mass., Painted Red.
Through the kindness of Mr. Alonzo
Jones, formerly of this city, but now in
the employ of Mr. Herbert E. Shaw, of
Wales, we are enabled to lay before our
readeis an account of the election cele
bration as given by a local newspaper of
that city. The report says :
"The non-partisan sound-money ele
ment of Wales celebrated the election of
McKinley and Hobart on Saturday night.
Such a parade was never known within
the memory of the oldest inhabitants.
The parade was led by mounted horse
men, of which Alonzo Jones was captain,
mounted on a large silver mare and tailed
steed, and dressed in full military uni
form. Following the horsemen was the
Fi3kdale Brass Bind, furnishing music
which was well appreciated; then came
200 torches, followed by 500 people. The
parade marched through the entire vil
lage. The houses were nearly all well
lighted with candles. Among those who
decorated to add to the beauty were: Fred
Royce, store lighted with Chinease lan
terns : the residences of Orlando P. Smith,
LeRoy Squier and Deacon Needham were
lighted with Chinese lanterns in artistic
siy'e and made an excellrnt show ; Rev.
G. W. Davis, who has rooms in the hotel,
illuminated them; A. A. Hubbard had
his home trimmed with bunting and old
gold, which hhowed off to good advan
tage ; Mrs. W. Green and Miss Ro3e Bailey
made a tableaux of two lit le girls, which
was very beautiful ; Mr. Coy's home wa
well lifted, and a banner made by his
daughter was displayed in tbe window;
H. E. Shaw had his piazza well decorated
with Chinese Lanterns iu festoons ; W. H.
Lathrop had a banner made of McKin
ley's pictu'e in a large frame ; the stores
of W. A. Lyon & Co., and W. Chamber
lain & Co. were well lighted with candles,
with It s'ooi s of bunting in the windows;
the home of H. A. McFailand was well
lighted, and in the windows were pic
tures of McKinley and Wolcitt, with
gold and tound money mottos, while in
the front ard was a banner w ith the
names of McKinley and Hobart, Wolcott
and Crane, in letters tinted in gilt; Mrs.
Kline deccrat d her piazza and showed
her usual interest in politics ; the "what
you call it" band fiom Mon on. consist
ing of fifteen members, well equipped
with horns, assisted in making Jots of
noise and furnished a good deal of fun.
The large gilt rooster furnished by Mr.
James Gill, of Springfield, was a very
noticeable object in tha procession. After
the mirch a targe lot of fire-works were
displayed and a band concert given, in
which the Monson horned band took a
prominent part. Tbe exercises were closed
with a display of red-fire.
Annual Conferences of the Methodist
Both the A. 31. E. and A. M. E Zion
Conferences were in session last week.
The A. M. E. at Newbern, with Bishop
Handy presiding, and the A. M . E. Zion
at Fayetteville, Bishops J. W. Hood and
C. R. Harris presiding. Bishop Hood's
Conference was largely attended, with
some of tne most cultured and refined
men in the ministerial ranks. This being
the one hundred' h year of the founding
of the A. M. E. Zion Church in America,
Friday's session was devoted entirely to
the Centennial exercises. Bishop C. R
Harris preached the Centennial sermon;
others read papsrs on various"tpics
showing the growth and development of
the Church since its organization. Rev.
Mr. Soott, of New England, who is a
natural born poet, was present and sang
some beautiful pieces of his production,
which were much applanded. The music
furnished by the choir was excellent.
Eastern Stap-shots.
, Court, is over.
Cotton is on the decline.
Hon. E. C. Duncan, Representative
elect from Carteret passed through the
"boro" last Friday, en route for his
home. The eastern lights of joy shone
forth in his eyes.
The Washington Pof is nothing, if not
a moulder of progressive ideas. The
suggestion of a "Negro" for a port of olio
in the McKinley Cabinet is an evidence
'of the couiage and sincere friendship of
this tribune of popular liberty. Ex
Senator Bruce represents the older and
conservai i ve leadership of the past ; Prof.
Booker T. Washington repreaents the
younger and conservative leadeisbip of
to day. He represents that element of
the Southern Negroes that will win for
the race a lasting and substantial place
in the "race of life." It would be mag
nanimous in McKinley, and a step to
wards binding the "Negio" to the Re
publican party. The negroes saved tbe
party in tne recent batt.e of the btand
ai ds.
Governor-el ct Daniel L. Russell will
move up the advance colums along edu
cational lines. We are so confident of
his desire to improve our school system
that our fears for the worst are gone.
The celebration at Battleboro aud Tr
boro was a auccess. Hon. Clinton W.
Battle, who is a candidate for the Battle
boro P. O., is happy over bis success.
' Hon. John H. Hannon deserves as well
of the McKinley adminis ration as any
'"Negro" in the State. His we for the-President-elect
in 1893 brought forth
much abuse to him; and whue he may
not be a candidate lor tbe houor, he de
serves the Recordership of Deeds of the
District of Columbia.
Pr.f. I. D. Hargett was among those
who were the friends of Hon. George H.
White when he needed them, and re
ceived his share of the obloquy visted
upon the old guard.
How will the old free trade, free sil
ver, and frea whiskered "fox" feel,

board and ditch him'r He will know
how to talk democracy to one man and
populism to another then. We are North
Carolinians, seeiog differently at tim s,
but aiming for the good of many. We
don't believe in free trade, free rent, or
free silver, jusc now. If you were for
Bryan, be man enough to say so.
Tne Fair given at Masonic hall on the
19th and 20th was a superb affair. Our
Methodist ladies deserve congratulatioLs,
George Lucas, in the contest for the mot
popular gentleman, won hands down.
Bro. Cain Barnes lead off well.
Ac the A. M. E Z;on Church, Novem
ber 22. 1896, Mr. Harry Macklin, of Nor
folk, Va., and M ss Nora Jenkins, for
merly of Edenton and now of Tarboro,
were united in the bonds of matrimony
by Rev. Atius Albertus Crooke." Tar
boro society people greeted them with a
large and admiring audience. Mrs.Mack
lin was one of those model young women
without great advantages. There was
much in her that our more favored ones
should emulate a higher life of recti
tude. Miss Delia White played the wed
ding march.
John W. Lloyd, former Secretary of
the Republican County Executive Com
mittee, and an alternate in the recent
State Convention that nominated Judge
Russell for Governor, is mentioned for
Post-ma ster of Tarboro. He is compe
tent, and can give the bond. The powers
that be would do well to till the service
with competent and worthy men.

We must have "race courtesy" for one

we will receive no consideration from
the opposite race.
Despite the fulminations of Senator
Butler, Senator Jeter C. Pritchard has a
rabbit foot now, and the senior Set ator
will find it out after the ballot for U. 8.

Hon. Geo H. White was given on his
return to Newbern after his election a
perfect ovation. A special committee of
leading citizens of that city and near
three tnou.-and people greeted him. He
was drawn through the streets in a buggy
by men to Odd Fellows' hall, where he
addressed them.
We hope to see such strong race men as
Profs. Hawkins, Smith, Dudley, Dellin
ger, Whitted and Atkins, on to Rileigh

in the educational world. Let there be

Many Citizens.
Eer. Andrew Brown Vincent, A. B.,
A. M.
The subject of this sketch was born in
Caswei! County, N. C, in the year 1857.
He was i eared on the farm in a section
where the environments were peculiarly
suitable for the formation of moral and
industrial habits, together with the de
velopment of muscle and brain. At an
early age he took advantage of the public
and private schools of his neighborhood,
and in 1875 entered the high school at
Mebane. Soon after entering this school,
young Vincent passed a creditable exam
ination, and became a teacher in the
public schools. Thus enabled him to
enter Shaw University in the fall of '76.
The Christian influences at Shaw soon
touched his heart, and he was converted
and became an earnest worker in the
Master's caute. His frankness gained
for him the confidence and reppect of
students and teachers alike. His posi
tion on any subject could be very eabily
defined, and he made no efforts to conceal
hi conviction.
U s services as student teacher soon
demonstrated his aotness to teach, and
upon the death of Prof. J. S. Lea, 1884,
he was appointed a regular teacher in the
University. During the same year be
was v. r. happily n amed to Mss Cora
Peaile Exum, of Wayne coumy, and at
the time a student of Estey Seminary.
Miss Exum was indeed a young woman
of gtHiile disposition, and of excellent
mental and moral qualities. The happy
union eti.l exists, having been blessed
with several loving children. Mr. Vin
cent performed the twindutiesof student
and teacher with credit, and having
finished the course leading to A. B., he
was graduated in 1685. The degree of
A. M. in course was conferred upon him
by his alma mater in 1890. " In 1893 he
retired from the school room, ranking
as rne of the beet moral teachers in the
State. His services were often securtd
by County Superintendent in the County
Teacher's Institutes.
Bjing imp -esse d withjjcsll to th Gos
pel ministr' , be entered upon trat work
while at Shaw, and was subfequently
ordained by order of the First B iptist
Church, R.leiyh, of which he was a
m mbrr, June 15th, 1893.
Prof. Vi- cent was for peve ral years
manager of the State Teacher's Bureau.
and was at one time elected Secretary of
the North Carolina Industrial Associa
ciation. O.her duties, however, forced
him to resign. For a number of years
be was Corresponding Secretary of the
Btptis' State Sunday School Convention.
In 1893 he was elected Stte Missionary
of the Baptist Ed ucatior a'andMissionaiy
Convent i m of North Carolina, and held
that position until the inauguration tf
the work of co-oporation nece sitated a
change in tbe work. He was then electe d
Missionary for the Central District with
headquarters at R leigh, N. C.
Rev. Vincent is indeed an enthusiastic
worker, and makes a thorough canvass
of his field. In recognition of his ability
and faithfulness, the N)rth Carolina
Teacher's Eiucaiional Assrcittion in
session at Kittre'l,' N. C, June 1896,
unanimously elect, d him President for
the ensuing year. Truly his popularity
is not confined to his own denomination.
He is universally admired for his catho
licity of mind and versatility of man
ners. " Chaste in conversation, genteel in
apt earance, forceful and prudent in de
bate, aggressive in argument and withal
strictly moral in character, he reflects
credit upon tbe great work to which his
life is dt voted. The Central District is
proud of her Mis ionary, and bespeaks
for him the hearty support and co opera
tion of all lovers f the honest, the pure,
the faithful and the gocd.

A Sad Accident.
Smithfield, N. C, Nov. 24.
A very Bad accident happened here
Tuesday about 3 o'clock in 0 e afternoon.
Mr. Daniel Thorxns.oneof the wealthiest
and most highly respected citizens if this
place, was instantly killed by the fall-ng
of a bile of cotton upon him. As near
as we could get at th-i facts: Mr. Thomas
owned a cotton-gin situated in the town,
and was at the gin-house preparing to
assist in loading a wagon with a bale of
cotton. The cotton when tken out of
the press is on the second floor of the
gin-houte and is thrown out at the do r
and slide d down the steps. Mr. Thomas
was on the ground guiding the rear end
of the wagon back to the steps, when the
man on the upper floor with the cotton
let the bale go, catchtng.the unfortunate
man between the end of the wagon and
bale of cotton, ma-hing his head and
chest against the hir.d-gate i f the wagon.
He never epoke afterwards. The com
munity loes a good, quiet citizen, one
loved and highly respected by both races,
and the church a faithful and upright
Christian brother. He leaves a loving
wife to mourn. He wa about forty-six
years of age. Rev. W. T. H. Woodward
preached hisfuuerai at the Biptst church
Wednesday afternoon. Rogers.
