Last year the programme included only the white schools. This year every pub lic school in the township joined in these appropriate and helpful proceedings. The white schools met at Metropolitan Hall, where they carritd out a splendid programme in the presence of a great crowd.

It not only carried joy and gladness into homes darkened by poverty, but inculcated practical benevo lence in a way tbat muse bear a harvest of glorious consequences. Rev. A. G. Davis was introduced, who spoke in gluwing words of the present way of celebrating Thanksgiving. Ha said that he had been in Raleigh eight years, devoting most of his time to the young. He was hopeful. Rreeenting the King's Daughters, he thanked all con cerned, couching his language in the ele gant d ctiun usual in all his efforts before the people. Mr. J. H.

Young and the Faithful and True Repnblican Workers at the Polls on Election Day by Republican Ladies of the Fourth Ward No One Who Scratched Young, or Voted Democratic Ticket Welcomed to Kat Young Crowned "King" of the Evening The Most Harmonious and JoyoHs Affair That Has Ever Taken Place Among the Colored People in this State 350 People Were Present. On Tuesday night of last wpek the Re publics ladies of the Fourth Ward gave one of the grandest banquets imaginable, c nnplituen'ary to Hon. James H. Young and the faithful and true workers at the polls on election day, ac theUnion Fourth Ward hall.. About 8 o'clock the guests had all assembled. Mr. Youog and fam ily arrive I about 8:30, and were ushered id the hall by MUs -s Nita and Eula Rogers and Laura Edwards. Mrs. N. A. Blake. President, called the house to order, and made a brief state ment. After stating for what purpose the supper was given, Mrs. Blake further remarked that she wanted it distinctly understood that none but true Republi cans and friends to "Jim Y,oung" were wanted there. If there were any voters in the hou-e who scratched Young they would please vacate. She did not want them t eat any of tne " victuals," and if they did, they cer ainly were not wel come. Rev. T. B. Edwards and Mr. B. J. Robinson were asked to occupy the stand with Mr. Young. Rev. Edwards led in prayer, after which Miss Laura Edwards read the programme. After the singing Mei-srs. W. F. Debnam. J. B. Hutchins, of Oberlin. A. B. Vincei.t, B. J. Robin eon, S. Eilison and Rev. Jos. Perry were called on, and made short ar d phasant speeches. In Prof. Vincent's remarks, he urged upon Mr. Young the need of a Stat e Ref ormatoi y , aiid Siid that be hoped that Mr. Young would support such a bill wi.h all his might when in the Legisla ture. A special committee consisting of Messrs. P. J. Jeffries aud T. II Spencer, waited on Mr. P. M. d eart at his home, and invited him to be present. He ar rived, and took the stand with YourTg and ethers. Mr. Stewart was called on to make a few remarks, which he very cheerfully did. At this juncture the speakmg chd, and the nrxt ihing in order was the crowning of Mr. Young, which was announce 1 by Mr. Blake. Six little maids of honor. Mis.-es Lucy Ten ell. Cara R .berson, Stllie Young, Mabel Vincent, Minnie Christmas and Bessie Wasbirgton (who were very small and looked cunning), all of whom were very nics and neatly dresstd, escorted Mr. Yourg from the stand to the head of the table, and placed upon his head a beautiful white crown of roses. Mr. Youug was then called to the stand again, attd rntidea very humorous speech. After a little on politics, he told the people that it was on nceouut of the work of the Re publican aud Populist parties on the 3d day of November that they were able to meet tegtther in that hill and rejoice over the gr and victory. Mr. Young said he was sure that he would be elected be cause he knew the good women folks were prayiDg, and sending up their pray ers to GJd ft-r him every day. Turning to the ladies, after praising them to the highe t, he t.aid: "I take it for granted that you ladies gave me this meet flatter ing compliment here to night because I reprt sent your cause, and further because yuu have confidei-ce in me. I will sutler my right arm to be cut off before I will betray the trust which you have reprsed in me. When the Legislature nuets, I shall go there, and as 1 did before, i-erve the people of my county and of the State to the best of my ability." Ai theconclusunof Mr. Young's spetch, wnicu was most highly appluded by everybody in the house, Mis. Blake an nounced that the remainder of the pro gramme for the evening was for every one in th house to p.irtake of the supper they had prepared tor them. It was in deed a rich and beautiful supper. The tables were laden with bsrbecued h( gs, baked chickens, boiled h.ims, and all the delicacies of the season. Mr. P. J. Jef fries had on hand a large supply of his fine ice cream, and he served it in grand style. Every one present ate until he was well filled and satisfied. Several were heard to remark: "We will elect Jim Young all the time if we can get such suppers as this every time." There was a ceitain man present who did not register and vote. It amused us much to see this man stand up to the table, and eat faster and more than any other man, even after sitting and hearing Mrs. Blake, the President, make her state ment, which has been mentioned above. We give here the names of some of the invited guests present. To give them all would take t o much space : Revs. Jos. Perry, T. B. Edwards, A. B. Vincent and family, Prof. W. F.

Let us continue our prayers, our battle and our organization for 1900. We mutt forever keep free from Democratic misrule and oppres sion. W. S. Mitchell. Oberlin School, Dec; 1, 1896. Editor Gazette. ' The Thanksgiving exercises of the Oberlin High School were held in First Baptist Church in the pleasant little vil lage of Oberlin. The exercises consisted of declamations, recitations and songs. The speeches and songs were based upon the principle of that divine maxim, f Do unto others as ye would that they do unto you." The children deserve great credit for the.excellent manner in which they con tributed to the poor and needy. Spt-ecbes of encouragement were made by Rev. B. P. Peterson and Mr. W. M. Graves. Several baskets of provisi ns, clothing and m ney were cairied by the children to the homes of the poor. Very respectfully youra. J. H. Branch. Principal. Miss F. M. O'Kelly. Miss S. A. Upperman. Eastern Snap-Shots. There is some sly maneuvering for sen atorial votes in these parts. It would pay Senator Pritchard to keep his eyes open on Republican members as well as pledged Populists. We know whereof we speak. Congressman White left for New Berne last Saturday, through the country. There was an immense gathering of the folks in the jollification. H n. George H. Wnite and Hon. John C. Dancy de livered superb addresses to the assembled throng. On many a tongue was the ex pression, "Don't this look like 'MabsonV day?" It was a great day for Edge combe people. The white citizens con tributed to the fund, with which to pay expenses. The jeweller keeps the valuble articles apart from the cheap goods. Raise the standard of moral excellence. The Union Meetings of the Primitive and Missionary Baptists were largely at tended last Sunday, det-pite the rain. Our readers will not tecome lired, if we should repeat again, that no man should tret if ne fails to reach the goal the Federal pie counter. The party of Lincoln, Sumner and Grant in this district, without regard to pie-counter trimmings, is prcud of the model race Representative, George II. White, made and who bids fair to leuiain in Congress until 1902. Miss C. M. Lewis is teaching near Tar boro, N. C. She spent a pleasant while with her parents in Virginia. Rev. A. A. Crooke left for the A. M. E. Zion Conference at Wilson, N. C , last Wednesday. Rev. Crooke bas made an excellent pastor. Too much caDnot be said by the lead ing race journal in behalf of a reforma tory for youthful criminals. No man in the Legislature with a black skin, should vote against giving S'taieaid to the University. Mr. B. W. Tnorpe is another of the Spartan Band of last spring, who is likely to be among the favorea ones. The leadership of the Countv D jmoc racy was turned down by Mr. W. E. Fountain, and Messrs. T. H. Gatling and Jenkins Bradley were appointed! by Judge Robinson additional commission ers. Iu T. H. Gatlin the friends of good government have an estimable public ser vant. Miss Cora Caine left for Bethel last Sat urday, to euter.the school-room on Mou day. Prof. Armstrong and the Rocky Mount Excelsior Band were the principal fea tures of the celebration. First-class music, genilemen ! In mentioning John II. Hannon, E-q., for Recorder of Deeds of the District f Columbia, we jusc wish to say that it is not " Buncombe," or to fill space in our letter. Since the last issue I have heard gentlemen remark that. "Hannon de srrves more of Maj. McKinley than any 00 .n, white or black, iu this State, and if North Carolina i to receive the honor Dck ' Hannon, t f Halifax county should be tf.e man. He is true to his friends, and we say, with lespect to Mr. Smith and Mr. Cheatham, who are mentioned also, that no Negro should apply against the "McKinley man" of4lb92. Russell, KcKinley and While's f rienus urge Jno. H. Hannon for Recorder. It's fact, that there is a crowd of "in consequential great men" around Wash ington City,' who make it a business to attack the 6trong men of the race scat tered in this beautiful Southland. L's a disease if chronic envy, of the brain and talent down this way. Well, Prof. Booker T. Washington will be ascending lofty beight-i of fame without knowing that there exists these envious persons. Washington is doing something that will tell for the Negro in a substantial way. There is too much lip-service without real deeds. The Grand U. O. of O. F. gave a levee tbat was a whaling success. Free Trade, Fiee Rent and Repudiation will stamp the man that is attached to it as a great failure. Esse Quam Videri. Rocky Mount Grits. Hon. Geo. H. White was the guest of Mr. M. M. Hines during the week. Our old friend, G. M. Mitchell, of Kins ton, passed through, en route to Norris town, N. J., last Wednesday. Rev. Washington Gibbs, formerly of Enfield, but now of Rockv Point, was in the city Wednesday. . Rev. Gibbs has many friends who would welcome him to our town again. He was once a pas tor of one of our churches. Bishop J. W. Hood, of Fayetteville, remained over quite awhile last Friday. We would be glad to have him to preach for us on his return from the Conferences at Plymouth and Wilson. The great celebration at Tarboro last Monday excelled any that we ever wit nessed. We estimated seven thousand people, all colored. The speeches of Messrs. Pierson, Watson and Battle in Princeville were excellent; but when our gallant and fearless leader, Hon. G. H. White, arrived, together wi.h Eige combe's noble son, Hon. John C. Dancy, the occasion was greater than we have space to describe. Each of them made patriotic speeches, and the audience went wild with enthusiasm. Rocky Mount hid another of her triple marriages last Wednesday night at the First Baptist church. Mr. Willie Bryan, one of our popular young men, led to tie altar. Miss L'zzie Pitt. The following acted as waiters: Miss Venusia Davis, with Mr. Thos. Pitt; Miss Nellie Pitt, with Mr. Frank Home; Miss Nannie Rhodes, of Tarboro, with Mr. Thos. Gee; Miss Millie Smith, with Mr. Chan. Reid; Mi3 Molb'e Dancy. with Mr. Westray Darden; M ss Cora Taylor, with Mr. Jas. Taylor; Miss Ella Westray, with Mr. Wm. Wilson. Little Misses Ira Alston and Sarah Collins were floral maids. Then came Mr. Thomas Cooper, who led Miss Christiana Saunders. The fol lowing acted as waiters! Miss Ada Rid, with Mr. Johnson Gregory; Miss Delia Saunders, with Mr. Jacob Cherry; Mies Arsenia Vick, wi'h Mr. John C m yers. Messrs. Walter McRae, Jas. Eop, Jordan Pryor and C. E. Bryan acted as usher. We extend to the contracting patties our best wishes, and bespeak for them many friends for a long and merry life. ' We thank our friends for the interest manifested in the matter of our treat ment by attending th celebration in Tar bjro last Monday. We propose to always represent principle, and nothing else at the same time treat our felow-man with due courtesy. Hon. John C, Dancy has received a very excellent letter from the National Republican Executive Committee, which is as follows: "In behalf of the members of the Re publican National Committee, I congrat ulate you upon the great victory won by friends of protection and honest money and national integrity to which you, by voice and influence, to ably contributed. To say that we are grateful to you for your eminent services would but feebly express our obligation to you. M iy you have your reward in the restoration of firosperity and the establishment of pub ic tranquility, which we confidently be lieve will follow the inauguration of Presi dent McKinley. " Thanking you for your promptness of action and valued services, and wishing you health and happiness, " I am, sincerely yours, "Powell Clayton, "Chairman Speakers' Bureau, New York Headquarters." Tnis letter shows at a glance how esti mable one of -Edgecombe coun'y's and one of North Carolina's sons i held with our National Committee. We have con tended all along that Dancy, Young and White were the foremost of our race in the State. Let the race of the State see that our gallant John shall be rewarded by being appointed to some foreign mis sion. He is worthy of any position the administration may offer. As an orator he hs no peer; his canvass in the West and North were excelled by none. Let him be rewarded. Miss Ella Westry went to the Tarboro celebration. 80 did Mr. R. Messrs. T. F. Gee, D. L. Chapman and I. W. Pryor went to Tarboro to nee their best girls. On arriving, Mr. Gee found tbat his girl, Miss Nora Jenkins, was married. Mr. Chapman's girl, Miss Coia Nobles, was not in town. Mr: Pryor was disappointed. Some other young man had engaged Miss C. L. Caine. Oh! how bad, gentlemen. You should peso your selves before leaving, next time. The S-?ven Wise Men h4d their anni versary last Sunday night at the First Biplist church. Owing to the inclem ency of the weather, our people did not attend the occasion us they wished. Bat the Order is a fine one and in a flourish ing condition. The founder, Mr: Wm. Guy, deserves all praise for his effort in that direction. W. S. ArmsthOko. Kegro's Prayer (Alphabetical). Arrange with us great God, Against ail races' rod; And may thy presence prove, Ail evils to lemove; And this we pi ay: Be Thou our stay Till earth and Heaven pabs away.

Patriotic, xelf-reHpecting, enterprising, THE TttlBUNE is fearless and scholarly in edito rial comment on public affaire, Head fax t in principle, and not whirled about with every gust of passion; and it exhibit in every lsMie the truly American qualities of quick uess, di rectness, brilliancy aud force. It lias won from Democratic rivals, by its thoroughly Ameri can spirit, the admission that it "commands the respect of alt parties." In directing; atten tion, early and pointedly, to the availability of McKlnley and Hobart for the Republican nominations In 189H.THE TRIBUNE played a now well known and important part.
