DAILY AND WEEKLY ZW There can be no better medium of a Ivertising than through our columns, as our paper goes daily into the hands of its many readers, thus keeping them ever re minded of our advertising merchants; and as the chief reason for constant adver tising is to have the advertisements read as often as possible ; the advantage of ad vertising in The Daily Argus is at once evident, as our patrons will have their ad vertisements read afresh every day.

Misses Eva and Irene Stanley, who have been attending the renown ed Mt. Holyoke Institute, at bouth Hauley, mass.; are at come for va cation, to the pleasure of their many friends here. A young cyclone struck the Goldsboro Lumber plant during the storm yesterday afternoon, unroofing the planing mills and doing consid erable damage to the dry kilns, to the extent of about $500. The Democratic ticket, State and National this year, is going to "get there It is a winner and no pos sibility of a mistake about it, Qrover Cleveland is going to be our next President and Eiias Carr, our next Governor. "JLnE oldest innabitants says that warmer weather has never been experienced in Goldsboro than that which has been ''sitting upon us for the past week. It's just awful But the farmers say "it's growing weather". 'The Issues of The Campaign' is the latest publication in politics. It is fully illnstrated with the pictures of the leading statesmen of the day and is sold by subscription. Mrs. J. C. Privett has the agency for this State. Mr, and Mrs. F. A.

Oliver, of ML Qiive. who stood second in th- recent examination, as published in these columns, rather than his own ppn Henry Grady, who stood first in the examination, una course is pjgbly ccmrnendabte in Mr. Grady, The first cotton bloom of the season is reported to this office by I Capt.T. i. Ham, trom nis iarm on the surburbs. We did not know be fore that the popular Commander of the Goldsboro Rifles is a farmer, but it seems that he is a "crack" farmer as well as a "crack shot. The spacious and desirable double two story brick store on Walnut street formerly owned and occupied bv Mr. 1. S. D. Sauls, has been pur chased from his assignees by Mr. I. B. Fonyielle, the grocer, who will move into it with his well-selected and always fresh line of family groceries. The progressive young firm of Koyall & Borden, finding their three story double store too small for their fj.st"increasing business, have rented the third stoiy over the tore large stores of the Kornegay building, which makes the space 20,000 feet now occupied by them. This does not include their mattrees factory. By what authority does the city command its police to shoot dogs promiscuously in the public streets? Have the citizens no rights to pro tection from the bungling aim of the untutored police ? Are the cit izens entitled to no consideration? Can they not be spared the scene of carnage such as that enacted by the shooting of an unmuzzled dog on the public street in the very centre of the city yesterday morning? The bungling aim of a policeman made an ugly scene of it. In response to the item in The Argus last week there will be a meeting of local talent in the Mayor's office this evening at 8:30 o'clock for the purpose of organiz ing a Cornet Band, and with the number of trained musicians of unusual talent that GoldBboro pos sesses there is no reason why this city should not have a band to com pare with any band in the State. We urge all who feel an interest in this matter to attend the meeting to night The popular grocery establish ment of Mr. I. B. Fonyielle, on the Southwest corner of Chestnut and West Centre streets, ia to be length ened sixty feet and otherwise en larged, to accommodate the growing demands of his trade. It is exceed ingly gratifying to The Argus to note this substantial evidence ofj the business progress of one of its most liberal and con stant advertisers. The contract for the work has been given to Mr. O.R. Rand, Jr., and the brick and lumber is now being placed on the ground. Why not impound dogs that are caught abroad in the streets without muzzles if muzzled they must be? There is considerable and growing indignation, among our citizens against the "shot gun" policy inau gurated by the city officials. Sup pose some citizen was to be bit by a stray shot from a load intended for an unoffending, unmuzzled dog, what would the city do about it? Not to speak of the general terror that reigns in the street when a po liceman "levels" at a dog. The Argus is not fault-finding: it is simply "giving notice." Thers were two interesting, largely attended and exciting gameB of baseball played in this city yes terday, forenoon and afternoon, be tween the Fremont team and our home club. The Fremont boys are a jolly, congenial, gentlemanly set of fellows and won the hearty appre ciation of all our people. The scor of the morning game was 22 to 2 in favor of the Goldsboro club, and that of the afternoon game was 5 to 29 in favor, likewise, or our boys The best of feeling pivvailed be tween the combatants throughout both games, and were umpired with entire satisfaction by Mr. Jim Baker. At Mprehead. (Special Telegram to The Argus ) Morehead City, June 23. A large and enthusiastic meeting ot teachers ana mends or education now at the Atlantic Hotel attending the Teachers' Assembly was held at 2:30 p. nl , to ratify the nomination of Grover Cleveland for President of the United States. ' Speeches were made by Maj. S. M. Kinger, Hon. J. O. Scarborough, Col. J. S. Carr, Capt. T. W. Mason, Pres ident C. D.

THE MM OF DESTINY 'Th Crttvdosi Democrat of Thorn Ali" The People ' Triumph and Victory Js Assured in November Next if Unity and Harmony be Counseled and Fostered. rhenew3 from Chicago at day break Thursday morning tells the story of the battle fought and won. It is Cleveland and Reform. It is Cleveland and the people. The battle has been splendidly fought and gloriously won. It was a fight of the people vs. the politicians, and, fortunately for the . people, it has been directed by a man who was so much a statesman that his gener alship defeated the tricks of the schemers Wm. C. Whitney, to whom is due much of the credit of the great victory. The result was a foregone conclu sion from the first. Only those who were so blind that they would not see have doubted it for months past. But the rejoicing of the people over the nomination of the "grandest Democrat of - them . all" Groyer Cleveland will be none the less universal, spontaneous and tumultu ous because it has been so long ex pected. No other name would arouse a tithe of the enthusiasm his will provoke. No other candidate would be half so sure of leading the party to victory as he. The nomination thrills the pulse of the Democracy of the whole coun try and will rally the masses as non other could. The man who would "rather be right than be President" is our leader, and this news will carry joy to every hamlet where beats the heart of an honest man. It will not be joy over a personal yictory, but over the triumph of the great princi ples of tariff reform and clean poli tics. There will be no "crowing" over the few who have seen fit to oppose Mr. Cleveland, To those who honestly doubted the advisability of Mr. Cleveland's nomination and said so, there will be no bitterness in the result. They simply differed from a majority of the party on a matter of policy and they will yield graceful lyto the ma jority's will. Mr. Adlai E. Stevenson, of Illi nois, is the nominee for vice-l'resi- dent; He is a life-time, all round, straightout Democrat, He was First Assistant f ost Master General under Cleveland, and he made things hustle he "turned the rascal s out lively. He is of North Carolina parentage and birth, but moved to Illinois long before the war. Ie was nominated on the first ballot yesterday after noon, on the re-conyening of the convention, and will add a tower of strength to the ticket It is most probable that he will wheel the State of Grant into the Democratic column. Cheers for Cleveland and Steven son and Governor Carr 1 ! ! mm C, THURS DAY, THE FOUR C'S. A Grand Ratification Rally at the Court House Thursday Night. The finest "opening" meeting ever known in this eity was that which was held in the court house Thurs day night for the organization of a Cleveland and Carr Campaign Club, lhe meeting was called to order by Mayor A. B. Hollo well, and Mr. Wi R. Allen was elected temporary chairman and Jos. E. Robinson temporary secretary. Un coming to the chair Mr. Allen iP'ide a magnificent speech that thrilled every one of his many hear ers, who applauded his stirring sen tences from time to time to the echo. On motion of Mr. F. A. Daniels it 1 V 1 1 ,1 1 vas decided tor tne cnair to appoint a committee ou consti tution and by-laws: and on motion of Gen. W. G. Lewis it was decided for the chair to appoint also a committee on permanent organiza tion, to report at an adjourned meeting of the Club next Thursday night. In pursuance of these motions the chair appointed the following com mittees: Permanent Organization A. B. Hollowell, J. E. Robinson, W. G. Jiewis, W. T. Harrison and Thomas JSdmundson, Constitution and By-Laws F. A. Danield, D. J. Broadhurst, J. II. Hurst and J. II. Hill. It was further moved that a com mittee be appointed from the differ ent wards of the city and the town ship at large to enlarge the member ship of the Club, whereupon the chair appointed the following: 1st Ward: J. H. Hill and A. B. O'Neil. 2nd Ward: W. G. Lewis and F. A. Daniels. 4th Ward: D. A. Grantham and W. T. Harrison. 5 th Ward: M. J. Best and W. H Sugg. Township: A. J. Harrell, Geo. W. Langston and W. T. Dortch. The secretary . was requested to nrol the names of all present who desired to join the club, and 150 names were thereupon enrolled. Mr. C. B. Aycock, elector for the State at large, introduced the follow ing resolutions, which were cheered enthusiastically and unanimously adopted : Resolved : That the Cleveland and Carr Campaign Club of Goldsboro township cordially endorse and rati fy the nomination by the National Demooratic Convention of that most distinguished, able and patriotic statesman and fearless leader Grover Cleveland for President, and of that staunch and aggressiye Demo crat Adlai E. Stevenson for Vice- President. Resolaed II: That we cordially en dorse and ratify the nomination by the State Democratic Convention of that true son of North Carolina and tried Democrat Elias Carr for Gov ernor, and the nomination of hia as sociates upon the Democratic State ticket. In speaking to these resolutions the eloquent and ardent Aycock made one of the finest speeches of his life and resolved every individu al man in his audience of cheering Democrats into an enthusiastic champion of the whole ticket and an invincible worker tor Democratic success at the polls in November. : The Club adjonrned to meet again next Thursday night for permaneut organization. Let every Democrat be on hand at that meeting. THAT VOTE AVA9 ALL RIGHT. We hear some unfavorable com ment among the misinformed upon the small vote given to President Cleveland by the North Carolina delegation in the National Demo cratic Convention at Chicago, it be ing only 3i, while they gave Steven son 16. That vote was all right, and re fleets the wonderfully good engineer ing of the North Carolina delegation, for which we congratulate them. Those 16 votes., given to Stevenson JUNE 30, 1892. for President and the only yotes he received for that honor, and with out his name having been put in formal nomination could have been commanded at any time by the Cleve land forces had they been needed for his success.bteyenson s own Statejlli- nois, gave Cleveland her full vote 48 and North Carolina, in the "counting of noses" gave him what he needed in that count, 3i, and gave Stevenson 161 simply to hold him in line for the second place on the ticket. Let all criticism, therefore, upon North Carolina's small vote for Cleveland cease at once; for that was the finest piece of engineering in the whole convention, and North Caro lina comes off, with the honor of naming the second man on the Na tional ticket and that honor to one of her own sons. Three cheers and a tiger for Cleveland and Stevenson and the North Carolina delegation ! ! ' THE TEACHERS' ASSEMBLY. (Special Correspondence.) Morehead City, June 28, 1892. Promptv onl Monday morning the Assembly began the work of the second week. It was the day for the Modern Language and English Literature Association, and in the mucl deplored absence of the Presi dent, Dr. Thos, Hume, the chair was occupied by Dr. Currell, of David son College. lhe lirst paper read wa3 by Prof. B. F. Sledd, of Wake Forest Col lege, on "The Science of Fairy Tales," and it was brimfull of the suggestive fairy tales of the past and present. Dr. S. B. Weeks, of Trinity Col lege, next read a most philosophic historical paper. Some of the ex pressions of the lecturer which led the audience to believe that he ob jected to the teachings of North Carolina history in primary and preparatory schools were warmly ob jected to by Profs. Brown, Britton and Aldermau and Hon. Ilezekiah Gudger. At the close of the regular work of the morning Prof. E, A. Alders man took charge of the meeting and proceeded to organize a "Historical bociety, Mr, Alderman in an elo quent manner,set forth the objects of such a society and the inestimable good it could do in preserving the great history of a great State. Great enthusiasm was aroused and many gentlemen expressed their interest in the movement. Mr. Alderman also called to the attention of the meeting the fact that he had letters from a number of the most prominent citizens of the State expressing their hearty co operation. Committees on organi zation and constitution were ap pointed, and another ' meeting will be held to-day. At night a large audience listened to a most delightful and instructive paper from Dr. Currell, of Davidson College, on "The History of Names". The witty speaker traced the growth of names from the days of the patriarchs down to the date of the registering of names on the register at the Atlantic Hotel, It was a capital address and was thoroughly enjoyed by a much pleased ?.udi ence: It has been very windy here to day, and the sailing, though seeming dangerous, has been most pleasant. Quite a number of young ladies took their first lesson in swimming this afternoon in the sound near the hotel. Nearly 800 people are in the hotel. Each train brings in fresh arrivals. Gov. Holt, Col. Elias Car, Ex-Go v. Jarvis are expected Tuesday. Twenty couples took part in a de lightful " German " in the ball room to-night. The. teachers are loud in their praise of The Argus in giying them a fall report of Col. Julian S. Carr's business like speech. Things are in excellent shape at theAtlanticChief Cleik Ed.
