Leak an nounced from his pulpit that he had been invittd by President-elect McKinley to come to Canton, and accompany him to Washington, when he leaves to be inau gurated. We knew this statement to be untrue for many rpaeons, but in order to satisfy the loyal Republicans as well as the public generally of the falsity of the statement; we addressed a letter to Maj. McKinley on the subject, and received the following reply: William McKinley.Canton, Ohio, February 18, 1897. Hon. James H. Young, The Gazette, Raleigh, N. C. Dear Sir: Yours of the 16th inst., in regard to the Rev. R. H. W. Leak, has ben received. Most assuredly the reverend gentleman is the victim of a thoughtless practical joker. He has not received an invitation from Major McKinley to accompany him from Canton to Washington. Yours very truly, James Boyle, Private Secietary. This ehould set the matter at rest. We announce now once for all that whenever one of these renegade fellows who voted against Russell or Young undertakes to first himself upon the powers that be that we shall pull the cover off of him. The traitors to the Republican cause and its nominees in 1896, as in the past, shall be uncovered. Just as the trees fell in 1896, so shall they lie in 1897. Don't forget that fact, gentleman. . Representative Daffy Calls Republican and Populist Parties PIe llntiterv." Representative Duffy, from Onslow county, calls the Republican and Popu list parties "pie-hunters." We will in form Mr. Duffy that when the Demo crats came in power they unceremo niously kicked every Republican out of office, and took charge of them them selves. Would it not be fair for us to take charge of the offices since we have tried for eighteen or twenty years to beat Jrour party's tricks and frauds, and at ast have succeeded ? And again, don't you think that what is sauce for the goose should be sauce for the gander? Mr. C. T. Bailey Resigns. On last Monday Mr. C. T. Bailey placed his resignation as Assistant Adjutant General of the State Guard in the hands of General Cowles, which was accepted. The resignation was the result of dis cord in the Guard.

The slight northbound changes are also shown. Be fore arranging your trip, call on one of the Seaboard agents, and you won't re gret it. Shaw University. - In the past few weeks many material changes have been made at Shaw Uni versity, and still other improvements are under construction or contemplation. President Meserve has shown great dili gence, enterprise and taste in the altera tions and additions which have been made. Two large electric arc lights have been placed on the grounds, bo that they are well lighted at all times of the night. The walks have been grfatly improved and a better drainage of the grounds is to be provided, which will greatly add to the handsome and attractive appearance of the buildings. But the interior of the buildings have not been forgotten; the absolute necessi- ties of the different buildings have not been sacrificed for the outward appear ance. Neat dtsks and chairs have sup planted the crude benches in the recita tion rooms in Estey Hall. The walls have been wainscoted, anl blackboards added, extending entirely around the room. The kitchen and dining-hall have un dergone quite a transformation. The kitchen is now connected with the city water-supply and the sewerage system. Many changes in the dining-hall were imperative. Some of the posts support ing the floor of the room were found badly decayed, and had to be replaced. President Meserve is anxious to make further alterations in this hall, and, while there is room for other improve ments, yet the room now presents a vary clean and appetizing appearance The University Hall or chapel has been greatly improved. Instead of the lamps, which swung from the ceiling, two rooms of electric lights, five lights in a row, have been placed. The room has also been artistically and tastefully painted, so that the chapel is now one of the most attractive college halls in the State. Bath-rooms and closets have been ar ranged in cne of the dormitory buildings, thus dispensing with any objectional buildings oo the grounds. A visitor to Shaw University is im pressed with the practical manner in which the manual training department is conducted. Carpentering is taught, together with free hand drawirg, and work is also done in the blacksmith shop. The chairs, furniture, etc., are repaired in these shops. One new feature has been added to the medical department, which promises to prove a blessing both to the students and to the poor colored people of this place. Consulting and operating rooms have been fitted up adjoining the medical building. Here, colored people who are unable to pay for medical treatment, can have attention from the students who are studying medicine under the direc tion of the instructing physician. A dispensary is connected with this department, where medicine is furnished to these unfortunate persons free of chargo. This gives the students a prac tical knowlege of medicine and of phar macy. Shaw University is now in a flourish ing condition, so far as the number of students goes. There are now 352 en rolled in all departments. Rocky Mount Grits. That aflat le, and ever friend-making gentleman, Mr A. J. Rogers, of the Ga zette, was in our town during the week, to pee the Gazette subscribers. Mr. J. W. Watson, of Whiaker's. his found an attraction in Rocky Mount. We wirhhold her Dame. Mrs. Richard Killebrew, of Tarboro, is visiting Mrs. Flowers Staton. We think an educational meeting should be called, and the Legislature asked to give us a joint school district out of Nash and Edgecombe counties. Let us try for a good school we need it. Miss Florida Lindsey gave a very en joyable social to her many friends last Monday night. Mr. Mills was there. We think if the present Legislature wouln repeal the six percent interest law, that capital would again look its way into our State. Mr. M. M. Hines and the grippe have had a conflict. Mr. Hines got the better of it, and is out again. We are very sorry to note the continued illness of Miss Priscilla Macklin. We hope she may soon recover. Rev. J. W. Perry, of Tarboro, passed through last Saturday. We regret to have again to record the death of another one cf Mr. W. H. Har ris's sons. Little Richard, his' son, de parted this life last Tuesday night, just one month and three days after bis brother Oliver's death. We sincerely condole with the family of the deceased on the dispensation with which it has phased Divine Providence to afflict them, and commend them for consolation to Him, who orders all things for the best, and whose chastisements are meant in mercy. We are also pained to note the death of Mrs. Jane Harvey, which sad event oc curred on last Wednesday night. She was a devoted Christian lady and loved by all who knew her. We extend our con dolence to the bereaved husband and son, and say There, in the shepherd's bosom, White as the drifted snow, Is the mother we missed this morning, From the household flock below. The following students from Rocky Mount are attending the Industrial School at Enfield: JohDn'e Battle, Rosa Cobb and Maggie Davis. We hope to see more at tending another term. Rev. L. J. Melton and Rev. Mock Mathewson held services at their churches on last Sunday. Rev. Kelly is making a fine impression upon our people. He is going to do a good work. W. S. A. Eastern Snap Shots. The present calls for " gentlemen " of lofty ideals in presenting a worthy cause, and the men and women of character, not alone in the schools of Edgecomte but in other callings, commend Prof. Logan D. Howell for his creditable men tion of the county before the Committee on Education. There are five colored schools against three white in Rocky Mount Township,' and each house had 3 months school during the last two school years, making about 174 months a year to the township. Average salaries last term $30 per month. The average length of school term for each house in the entire county was, up t o July, 1895, about six months tor colored and two or three days less for the white. Well! truth is golden and will win. Wm. McKinley will be President after Wednesday next; Hon.. George H. White will be Congressman. This gentleman has from start to finish been a McKinley and Pritchard man, like Young". That is a huge joke that is going the rounds of the press -that had it not been for Hon. the negro members of the General Assembly would have bolted Pritcbard. The prets forgot that Young, Howe, Arrington and Henderson are among the negro members. Line up, gentlemen, for your pie, but don't forget that the North Carolina dele gation will work in harmony with each other regardless of false impressions, and outside of the delegation the orig inal McKioly-Pritchard workers, led by Young, Hannon, Denny, Wadlell and Middleton, are first. Ah! Register and Recorder combine, please see! Miss Florence Randolph is in the "Boro" visiting Miss Delia White. Rev. J. S. Sills is again in the 4 Boro." And they do sav that Hon. Geo. W. Murray, of South Carolina, is in the field for Recorder of Deeds. There is a dozen and one candidates in North Carolina for positions -that they know they can't get, simply to defeat the other. There are some distinguished blue-coat men who said that McKinley would not be in it, but now are ready to push the orig inals in the creek to get a place. This writer started out a Reed follower, but caught sight of the political weather vane. " Mr. Thomas Shields, of Halifax, waa in the "Boro" last week, taking the ex amination for the Lawrence public school. One hundred thousand dollars should be voted to public schools. Esse Quam Vedire. Polloksrille Items. The appointment of Rev. R. G. Smith to the A. M. E. Z. Church at this place is proviDg.a success. He is carrying things before him gently.

Our sympathy to the bereaved wife and children. Prof. J. H. B. Lane, of Franklinton College, closed a short term of free school the 12th inst. Mr. R, O'Hara, attorney, of Newbern, failed to come Saturday. We feel proud of his preparing to practice in our little town. He will do much good in his vo cation. The writer was at his home Saturday on business of post-office aspiring, which is sure to be, from the future, bright. We, the readers of the Gazette, feel S roud of our negro paper, edited by J. . Young, the negro political leader. It is a paper of the times. Find enclosed $1.50 $1.00 for Mr. Benjamin Simmons and fifty cents more to my credit. H. S. Kemp. lion. Richard Elliott a Candidate for the Edenton Postofflce. - Hon. Richard Elliott is a candidate for the appointment of postmaster at Eden ton. Mr. Elliott is an old -line Republi can and a clever gentleman. He has served his party faithfully. Mr. Elliott has the confidence of his people at home, or else they would not have sent him here to the Legislature to represent them. He will make an excellent good officer, if he should be appointed, we feel sure. Dead In his Tracks Excitement Al most a Lynching. Newbern, N. C, Feb. 23. In s'ght of 500 or more men, women and children on the grand stand and a hundred men in side the track, a negro was shot down in cold blood on the race track about 2:15 o'clock this afternoon. The greatest ex citement for a few minutes prevailed and it looked at first like a lynching would occur from the beams in front of the grand stand, from which the lady trapeze athlete had suspended her bars. Jim Washington, colored, rubber-down for Geo. Bennett's horses, was shot three times by Charles Bobo, another colored man, with the stables .of T.W. Foster, of Augusta, Ga., and almost instantly killed. From all that could be learned it seem ed an unprovoked and cold-blooded mur der. This morning Bobo was leading Guy fly around for exercise. The horse is vicious and jumped at Bibo and knock ed him down. AH the jockeys and stable boys gave Bobo the laugh He cursed the crowd, but especially Washington, to whom be said, " Damn you, I'll kill you to day for laughing at me." This after noon just as the horses were finishing the last lap in the second heat of the 2:50 class the people in the grand-stand were startled by a crack of a pistol. At first it was thought a pneumatic tire had burst ed, then two other shots rang out in rapid succession. Bobo had renewed his fusa with Washington and killed his man. Just preceding the shooting Washing ton had mads the remark in the presence of a crowd of stable boys that Rivett had won the fiist heat, which was very close. Bobo said Eliz won it. Washington con tended Rivett won, when Bobo without further provocation called him most foul names and struck Washington in the mouth, saying, I will kill you." Suit ing his words to the action he whipped out a thirty-two calibre pistol and fired at his prey, wounding him in the jaw. Jim ran, with Bobo after him. The latter fired two more shots, the first of which hit bim in the back of the head and the last in the back, piercing his lungs, which was the fatal shot. Washington ran seventy-five yards and fell just in front of the judges' stand. The crowd of men got hold of Bobo and cried, "Lynch him, lynch him 1" Several policemen and Sheriff Ilahn ran up and, handcuffing the prisoner, they drew pistols and the crowd fell back. Fully a hundred men followed the officers and prisoner to the race track entrance, insisting that he be lynched. Washington died in five minutes, while a morbid lot of men, women and children hung over the grand-stand railing look ing at the blood flowing from mouth, ears and wounds. The body was remov ed, and the races, which had been sus pended a few moments, were on again. As soon as the awful tragedy fixed itself on the minds of the ladies in the grand stand many of them left. Several had fainted. It was miraculous no one else was killed and but for the true and dead ly aim of the murderer a more fearful tragedy might have resulted. Bobo shot at Washington as he fled through the crowd of men on the track and boys and men along the fence. Blood from his wounds splashed on shoes and pants of others as he ran.
