One of the colored attendants of the
Eastern Hospital, n ar this city tor
colored insane, lost his life Thursday
at the hands of one of the inmates,
whom it was his duty to watch over,
but instead. he reclined himself on a
bench in the ward, and while in this
position and off his guard, the crazy
inmata approached him and delt
him several blows on the bead
rapidly with a piece of iron
water or gas pipe, that in some way
he had got possession of, probably
while being attended about the
grounds. It was an unfortunate
occurrence; bnt no blame can be at-
tachei to the management of the in
stitution, as the duty of the attend
ant was that of a watchman, and
haying failed therein he paid with
ous life for the laches. Had he been
ha his guard the affair would not
hive happened.
A melakcholy tragedy occur
red the other day on a Hoboken

gers entered the pilot-hous- aud po
litely but firmly iuformed the cap

and should ste r in the opposite di
rection. He was repulsed with so
much rudeness that he left the room
exclaiming: "Great heavens! Have
I paid my two cent3 and come on
board a boat, only to be tol 1 to mind
my own business when I offer to
help them out in nfcvigatirg it?"
W hereupon he rushed to the railirg
and leaping overboard was swallowed
up by the wave?. An examination
of his valise revealed a mass of pub
lished and manuscript letters to var
ious newspapers which e had been
in the habit of guiding and instruc
ting gratuitously for many years.
His death will be a serious loss to
journalism; but it is some comfort
to know that there are many of his
kind still surviving.
An Enterprise orGrowinjr Proportions

While attending lh" stockholders'
ireeting of the A. & C. R. R. at
Mrehead City lust Thursday we
had occas'oc, en route, to make a
thorough insp-ctioa ot the marc-
moth branch mills at Dover of the
Gok'sboro Lumber Company of this
city, and the high grade railrcad
known as the "Dover and South
bound" which that company is buil
ding through their extensive timber
reservations southward.
This road is already five miles in
lergtb, and has a locomotive and
rolling stock of its own for logging
purpose. It is of standard gauge
and equipped ? ith substantial cross-
ties and new steel rails throng" out.
The fir3t three miles of the road
le d through the dense marsh to
the. Ponth of Dove-, but the road
bed is so well dra'ued and graded
that :t reflects high credit upon the
unswerying purposg andindomnit-
able energy of the Goldsboro Lum
ber Company, for it evidently re
quired much labor, great expense
aud skilled engineering to construct
such a road throughout such a low
atietch of country. Bnt the last
two miles of the road and thence
on 1 1 ng its prospective route pene
trate a country rich in fine timber,
bountiful in crop products and in
viting to the feet of progress and
the efforts of enterprise. So that
it needs not a prophet to say that the
Dover & Southbound has a future
as bright in promise as the country
which lies before its advancing foot
steps is rich in soil and Bountiful in
projection. .
But it is not alone because of the
local interest and the personal pride
we take in the Dover & Southbound
Railroad, by reason of its relation to
Goldsboro, that we make this notice.
We desire to call attention. to it also
because it gives promise of becoming
a valuable feeder to the A, & N. C.
R. R. in bringing to its line at Dover
from the I country ; Southward, as it
advances, freight f yr tte cities of
Newbern,; Goldsboro, , - and even
greater centres of trade.
The moving spirits of this road
are Messrs. T. B. Hyman and J. J.
Street, of the Goldsboro Lumber
Company, backed by their northern
partners; and so, too, are two Golds
boro young men actively engaged in
the operation of the road : Messrs.
Joe Street and Tom Hyman.

To Regulate immigration,
The idea that we can protect onr
institutions by prohibiting ail im
migration is as iooiish as the plan
ot excluding cholera by closing all
ports and allowing no one to enter.
The purpose of quarantine is to
exclude injection withont hinder
ing commerce. The object of any
new laws or regulations about
immigration mist be to exclude
the worthless and dantrerons classes
without shutting our doors against
welcome addition to onr popula
If there never had been any im
migration to America the Indians
would beetill in possession, ho.
lowing down the history of the
country it is impossible to fix upon
any definite time at which immi
ration ceased to be a gain, Ihe
periods of largest immigration have
been those of the most rapid na.
tional development, both in mate
rial prosperity and in the arts of
civilization. Ihero was no year
when we could wisely have said
that it was time to 6top this source
of growth, and evenTf we think the
time has come now we cannot shut
the doors absolutely if we would.
Yet every one, looking back over
the past quarter of a century, can
recogn'ze the time when the char
acter of immigration began to
change for the worst ; when.instead
of independent persons or families
coming out to seek their fortune
and work their way in the nev
world, it began to consist largely
of great bands and tribes of aliens
brought over here under conditions
of dependence if not of servitude,
and when the country began to be
not merely the asylum of the op
pressed, but the dumping ground
of the criminals and paupers of all
This is the kind of immigration
that we want to stop Mere pro
hibitory legislation will accom
plish nothing Narrow-minded
laws, like the contract labor act,
hamper more than they help. We
have seen no better euggeetion for
the solution of thia problem than
that made by General Walker,
which is simply the imposition of
a moDey test an import duty on
General Walker's idea is to re
quire every alien entering the
United States to deposit one hun
dred dollars, to be refunded if be
should depart out of the country
within three years. If he remain
three years and at the end of that
time brings evidence that be ia a
law-abiding and self-supporting
citizen, the money would then be
paid back to him. The deposit
would be thus a security for the im
migrant's Individual fitness, and as
it would not be subject to assign
ment or attachment it would pro
tect him ss well as the public.
A law like this would not have
interfered appreciably with the
des;iable immigration of the past.
The Irish, Germans, Swedes, Nor
wegians and others who have con
tributed so much to tbe develop"
ment of the country conld very
generally have met this require
ment, and would do so still. But
it would cut off at once all this as
eisted immigration and the landing
ot hordes of tqaalid nomads on
onr shores with no honest means
of subsistence and no capacity for
growth into useful citizens.

His Letter Accepting the Presidential
New York, Sept. 26 the follow
ing is ex-President Cleveland's letter
accepting the nomination as Demo
cratic candidate for President of the
United States:
To Hon. Win. I Wilson and others,
Committee, etc :
Gentlemen In responding to
your formal notification of my nomi
nation to the Presidency by the Na
tional Democracy, I hope I may be
permitted to say at the outset that
continued reflection and observation
have confirmed me in my adherence
to the opinions which I have here
tofore plainly and publicly declared
touching the questions involved in
all the canvass. This is the time,
above all others, when these ques
tions should be considered in the
light afforded by a sober apprecia
tion of the principles upon which
our Government is based and a clear
understanding of the relation it
bears to the people, for whose benefit
it was created. We shall thus be
supplied with a test by which the
value of any proposition relating to
the maintenance and administration
of our Government can be ascertain
ed and by which the justice and
houestv of every political question
can be judged. If doctrines or the
ones are presented which do not
satisfy this test, loval Americanism
must pronounce them false and mis
ne protection ot the people :n
the exclusiv? use and enjoyment of
their property and earnings consti
tut 8 an especial purpose and mission
of our free government. Ibis design
is so interwoven with the structure
of our plan of rule that a failure to
protect the citizens in such use and
enjoyment is an unjustifiable dimi
nution of Government itself, is a be
trayal of the people's trust. We have
however, undertaken to build
great nation upon a plan especially
our own, we to maintain it and to
furnish through its agency the
means for the accomplishment of
national objects.
The American people are willing,
through federal taxation, to surren
der part of their earnings and in
come, .tariff legislation presents a
familiar form of federal taxation.
Such legislation results as surely in
a tax upon the daily life of our peo
pie as a tribune paid directly into
the hand of the tax gatherer. We
feel the burden of these tariff taxes
too palpably to be persuaded by any
sophistry that thev do not exist or
are only justifiable when laid and
collected for ' the purpose of main
taining our Government and fur
nishing means for the accom
plishment of its legitimate pur
poses and functions. This is tax
ation under operatiou of tariff
foi revenue. It accords with the
professions of American free insti
tutions and its justice and honesty
answer the test supplied by a correct
appreciation of the principles upon
which these institutions rest. This
theory of tariff legislation manifest
ly enjoins strict economy iu public
expenditures and their limitation to
legitimate public uses, in as much as
it exhibits as absolute extortion, any
exaction by way of taxation from the
substance of the people beyond the
necessaries of careful and proper ad
ministration of the Government,
Opposed to this theory the dogma
is now boldly presented that tariff
taxation is justifiable for the express
purpose and intent of thereby pro
moting especial interests and enter
prises, buch a proposition is so
clearly contrary to the spirit of our
Constitution and so directly encour
ages the disturbance by selfishness
and greed of patriotic sentiment that
its statement would rudely shock
our people, if they had not already
been insidiously allured from the
safe landmark of principle. Neyer
haye honest desires for national
growth, patriotic devotion to coun
try and sincere regard for those who
toil been so betrayed to the support
of pernicious doctrine. In its be
half the plea that our lmant indus
tries should be fostered did service
until discredited by onr stalwart
growth. Then followed the exis
tence of a terrible war, which made
our people heedless of the opportuni
ties for ulterior schemes afforded by
their willing and patriotic payment
of unprecedented tribute. And now,
after a long period of peace, when
our overburdened countrymen ask
for relief and restoration to a fuller
enjoyment of their incomes and earn
ings, they are met by the claim that
tariff taxation for the sake of pro
tection is an American system, the
continuance of which is necessary in
order that high wages may be paid
to our workingmen and a;home mar
ket be proyided for our farm pro
ducts. These pretenses should not
onger deceive. . The truth is that
such a system is directly antagonised
by every sentiment of justice and
fairness, of which Americans are
pre-eminently proud. It is also true
that while our workingmen and
farmers can, least of all of our peo
ple, defend themselves against the
harder home life, which such tariff
taxation decrees, the workingmen,
suffering from importation and em
ployment of pauper labor, instigated
by bis professed friends, and seeking
for his interest in organized co-oper
ation, still waits for a division of the
advantages secured to his employer
under the cover of the generous so-
lcitude for his wages, while the
farmer is learning that the prices of
bis products are fixed in foreign
markets, where he suffers from com
petition invited and built up by a
system he is asked to support. . -
ihe struggle for unearned ad
vantage at the doors of the GovV
eminent tramples on the rights of
those who patiently rely npon the
assurances of American equality.
Every governmental concession to
clamorous favorites invites con op
tion in political affairs by encourag
ing expenditures of 'money to : de
bauch suffrage in Bupport of the
policy directly jfavorable to private
and selfish gain. This in the end
must sprangle patriotism tnd
weaken popular confidence in the
rectitude of Republican institu
tion p. Though thesnbject of tariff
legislation involves a question ol
morals We cannot with impunity
permit injustice to taint the spirit
of right and equity, which is the
lite ot our republic and we shall
tail to reac'i our national destiny
if greed and solfichnefs lead the
way. v
Recognizing these truths, the
national Democracy will eeek, by
application ot lust and found prin
ciples, to equalize to our people the
blessings due them from the Goy
eminent they support, to promote
among our conntrymen closer com
munity ot interest, cemented by
patriotism and national pride, and
to point out a fair field. where pros
perous and diversified American
enterprises may grow and thrive
in the wholesome atmosphere of
Amencin industries, ingenuity and
intelligence. ..
Tariff reform is still bur purpose
Though we oppose the' theory that
tariff laws may be passed, baring
for their object the gran ling ol disc
criminating and unfair Govern
mental aid to prevo'e ventnres, we
wage no exterminating war against
any American interests. We be-
lieve a re-adjustment can bo ac
complirhed in accordance with the
ptinciples we profess, without dis
aster or demolition. We believe'
that the advantages of -Jreer raw
material should be accorded to our
manufacturings and we contem
plate a fair and careful distnbu
tion of the necessary tariff burdens
rather than the precipitating of free
We anticipate with calmness the
misrepresentatives of our motives
and purposes, instigated by that
selfishness which seeks to hold in
an unrelenting grasp its unfair ad
vantage under the present tariff
laws. We will rely upon the in
telligence of our fellow countrymen
to reject the charge that tha party
comprising a msjonty of our peo
pie is planning the destruction or
injary of American intcrestp, and
we know they cannot be fright
ened by the spectre of impossible
tree trade.
The administration and manage
ment ot our Government depend
upon the popular . wiil. lederal
power is the instrument of that
will, not bis master. Therefore,
the attempt of the opponents of the
Democracy to interfere with and
control the sunrage ot the States
through Federal agency developes
a design, which no explanation
can mitigate, to reverse tha funda
mental and safe relation between
the people and their Government
Such an attempt cannot fail to b:
ill .i t . i

proof of a bold determination to se
cure the ascendency of a diecred
ited party in reckless disregard of
the free expression of the popular
will, lo resist such a scheme is
an impulse of Democracy. At all
times and in all places, we trust
the people as against a disposition
to force away to Federal power.
We present to them as our claim

this condition absolutely guaran

the adjustment of our currency. In
dealing with the subject, no selfish
scheme should be allowed to
intervene and no doubtful experi

ot money circulation, ought to be
fully and hoaestly recognized and

tore, their duty to secure for those
whom they represent tha best and

accomplished by regarding the

ofGoyernment employes. These
considerations alone are sufficient
justification for an honest adber

Uivu bervice reform. There are.
however, other features of this plan,
which abundantly commend ' it.

The same principle requires that
the line between subjects which
are properly within Governmental
control and those which are more
fittingly left to parental regulation
should be carefully kept in view.
An enforced education, wisely
deemed proper preparation for citi

impairment of wholesome parental
authority, nor detrimental to
household conscience. Paternal

pride and maintaining our national
honor. Both" their material inter
ests and. their national pride and
honor are involyed in the success of
the Columbian Exposition and they
will not be inclined to condone any
neglect of effort on the part of their
Government to insure in the gran
deur of this event a fitting exhibit
ot American growth and greatness,
and a splendid demonstration of
American patriotism.
In an imperfect and incomplete
manner 1 have thus endeavored to
state some of the things which
accord- with the creed and in
tention of the party to which I have
giyen my life long allegiance. My
attempt has not been to instruct my
countrymen nor my party but to re
mind both that Democratic doctrine
lies near the principles of our Gov
ernment and tends to promote the
peoples good! I am willing to be
accused of addressing my. country
men upon trite topics and in homely
fashion; for I believe that important
truths are found on the surface of
thought and: that they should be
stated in direct and simple terms.
Though much is left unwritten, my
record a3 a public servant leaves no
excuse for misunderstanding my be
lief and position oq the questions
which are now presented to the
voters of the land for their decis
ion. Called for the third
time to represent the party of my
choice in a contest tor supremacy
of Democratic principles, my grate
ful appreciation of its confidence.
