Leak Was Sot Invited by McKinley.
On Sunday week ago Rev. 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
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,
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?

To All Travelers!
Your attention is invited to the changes

Shaw University. -
In the past few weeks many material
changes have been made at Shaw Uni

under construction or contemplation.
President Meserve has shown great dili

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
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.

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.

month. Those desiring to reduce' their
expenses by work will be taken at the
lowest possible rates: young men $6.40
per month; young women $5.40 per
month; day students $1 per month. A
small incidental fee will be charged.
The school will reopen on the 7th day
of October, 1897. Our purpose is to make
it one of the largest schools in the South
for the race. Law and Medicine will be
added. The institution is wholly non
sectarian in its religious instruction or
influence. Yet earnest attention will be
given to Bible study, applying its truths
to daily life and conduct, that a thorough
Christian character may be obtained. It
is open to all students of either sex.
None but competent teachers will be em
ployed. For further information, address the
President, Rev. M. L. Latta, D. D.
I will le-ive for the North and Europe
the latter part of December or the first
of January, and will return time enough
to have buildings completed by the re
opening of the school. The University
will contain eight buildings.
