The Opinion of The Caucasian and
the Opinion of others which we
Can Endorse on the Various
Topics of the Day..
Tho Buffalo (X. Y.) Commer
cial, a Republican paper, has
found out that, little Billy Chan
i r, 11. S. Senator from New
Hampshire, ''is far from a great
ji.;ui." A pulled none in the
Cianile State Is more honored

'J he ballot Mill just passed by
('oinu'ctieut'H I legislature, and
figned by Gov. Bulkely, pro
vides that each voter shall enter
a booth or compartment next
to tho polling place, where he
ran prepare his ballot free from
observation; prohibits the ap
proach of "worker." within a
certain distance of the polls; re
fjiiiics all ballots to be printed
on blank paper, to be purchas
ed of the state and to be depos
ited in a.i envelope supplied by
the State. N. Y. World.
Moid states need this law.
Several of the North Carolina
papers arc discussing the tariff.
That i.s right. The people need
instruction on that line. We
suppose in the last fifteen years
we have written hundreds of
articles bearing on this from of
taxation and its opprssions and
abuses. If you want to make an
imprcss on he in earnest and
give line upon line, here a lit
tle and there a good deal, and
then keep on giving. Every few
days the year round wo stick
our editorial awl in the monster
known as a protective tariff.
The 'infant industry" dodtje
died about the t"me that Clay
expired in 1857, we think it was.
Men. Butler Ins written a
damaging article against Gen
Porter and one of Porter's men
comes back at him in tho N. Y.
World as follows:
It s nay be that Ben Butler is right
iu his estimation of Admiral Porter,
but jt must bo worth something to
Porter to know that while he served
all through the war ho left no hatred
ofhimsinn the hoarts of the wom
en and children of the South; heter
rori.ed no non-combatants; he rob
bed no privato vaults for personal
gain; lie stole no cotton to enrich
himself and partners; he hanged no
foolish boys, and ho has not been
hauled into the courts since the war
as a common frecltooter to make res
titution. The brand of thief is not
sta.nped upon him, nor will his
grand children shudder al the!
thought that he lives in the niomo
ry often millions of people as a ra
ipacious beast.
Sampson county's annual loss
in wasted fruits and vegetables,
if estimated in dollars and cents
and held up before our people,
would causo soino of them to
open their eves in astonish
ment. Each season is a repeti
tion of this wanton waste, and
what is the remedy? It is not
necessary for as to answer a
canning factory. This could be
easily started on the plan that
one has been organized under
in Fayeteville. Those who have
the means can furnish the cap
ltal and the fruit growers and
farmers of the surrounding
country can contract to furnish
as much fruit and vegetables as
the capacity of the lactory may
demand. Places in the state
whose advantages arj inferior
to those of Clinton have canning
factories in successful operation
and why not Clinton with her
superior advantages start one?
The cost of outfit for a factory
on a small scale has been esti
mated as follows: A 12 horse
power boiler $220, open kettle
517, crane f 13, exhaust box 17,
extra kettle 8, air pumps $3
oil tank $3, fire pot 10, capping
tools $8 total $307. This out-,
fit is all that would be neede.d
in canning tomatoes, peache
pears, berries and all Vegetables
except corn and peas. Now, lei
some one take hold of the tnat
ter and push it to success.

Davidson Coi.leor, X. C, 1
June 20th, 1889.
A larger audience than usual
attended the interesting exer
cises to-day, Dr. J. B. Shearer
was elected President and Pro
fessor of Biblical Instruction,
and Prof. C. K. Harding was
elected Professor of Greek and
German, both in June, 1888, were
formally inducted into office by
Hon. A. Leazer, now speaker of
the lower house in tho State
Legislature and a trustee of Da
vidson College.
Dr. Shearer, af ter uckno wledg -merit
of the high honor confer
red, and the social trusts con
nected with it, delivered an im
pressive inaugural, in which he
emphasized the importarce of
the harmonious development of
all faculties, physical, mental,
social and spiritual, and the in
completeness of education that
neglected any of these liarmony
requisites, of that high man
hood which he and the faculty
would over strive to foster.

session at a cosj; of 30,000, will
emphasize the importance of
physical development, while the

The speaking both on Wed

aily good, by every competent
judge present.
The next session begins'Sep
tember 12th, and closes a week
earlier, the Christmas holidays
being abridged one week.
The "Wilmington Messenger
remarks :
Our observation is that the Mnall
towns of North Carol i ia, the i oter
mcdiate stations and small nlaees
aloivr the railroads, are mating the
most progress, showing iho greatest
proportionate i mniovement. Tuere
are dbTereot ways of accounting for
this, and a variety of causes offered
in exphviaiion, but to our mrnl there
is but one main cause producing this
geoeral effect. And that is altered
methods in the transportation man
agement ot tho country. One caa
not fail to remark the evidences of
new energy r.nd progress at the va5-
ous interior towns of our State, and
inquiry will elicit the fact that it
dates from the beftin-iin-? of opera
tions under the Inter-Siate Com
merce law, which planes all points
piacucally upon the same fooling in
everything that relates to transpor
tation beyond the limits of the Slate.
Clinton is one of this number
and if she keeps on at the pre
sent Tate of improvement she
will ere long be ranked among
the larger towns of the State.
Lot ns have a" few more manu
factories and she will soon dou
ble in size and population.

The water has-valuable rnedi

the sick, the laino and the halt
go there.
The different committees for
the Centennial have been an
nounced. The make up of them
is good. The F. I. L. I. have

while Mr. Baker will manage

hotel, near Bon Harbor, Maine,
for the summer. He will return
as soon as the season there is
over, and the improvements to

be completed. There are steam

The negroes of this county
have organized an emigration
bureau. If about o e-half of
theri would leave we belie.ve
that it would be better for the
State, as intelligent farmers
from other States whom we de
sire to locate in the State wili
not come and attempt to do sci
entific farming with ignorant
and shiftless laborers, and for
the same reason white laborers
are not coming here to compete
with them. For the darkey,
however we have the kindliest
feelings, as all Southerners have.

opening address or President
Geo. T. Winston, lecture by Dr.
Crowell of Trinity College, on
conomy in School,, a sym
posium on Euglish Literature,
nder the direction of Dr. Hume
of the University, and an ex
cellent paper on "Reading" by
'rof. J. L. Tomlinson of the
Greensboro public schools.
The annual address by Presi
dent Winston was one of the
best addresses we ever heard
roin anybody on any occasion.
t was full of good advice, sound
union sense, aud withal wit-
y, bright and full of charming
The most laughter-provoking
part cf the address was the al-
usion to the approaching visit
of the Teachers to Europe. The
peaker said he had noticed
with peculiar pleasure the great
preparation France was making
or their reception, the Eiffel
tower, Buffalo Bill, &c. He then
tfead a telegram from H. Tt. A.
Albert, Prince of Wales to
Eugene W. Han-ell, Secretary cf
the Teachers' Assembly. The
aince wanted to know if Har-
ell wanter1 rooms In Bucking-
lam Palace for the Assembly,
or only Harrell and "Winslow."
The telegram closed with this
solicitous inquiry: "Have you
and Winslow had the mumps?"
Secretary Eugene Harrcll's re
ply was also read amid great
auhter and applase.
Gov. Fowle addressed the
ssembly briefly and in his
happy and eloquent manner he
spoktt of his love for the teach
ers Assembly and his confi
dence in the greatest good which
t was now doing and was destin
ed to accomplish for .the State.

There have been two heavy
falls of rock at Niagara lately:
mass of rock fell from the
Horse-shoe Falls first, and the
next day another great mass was
recipitated into the abyss with
noise so closely resembling
that of an earthquake as to ter
rify all wh o heard it. This dis
placement of rock has resulted
in a change in the shape of the
fall, macing it aain horseshoe
shape, whereas the breaking
away of rocks-a few years since
had made it V-shape. The falls
of Niagara are gradually mov
ing to the south, diggin r away
the shaly rocks as they move
backward. It was formerly
thought that the gradual wear
ing away would fiually lower
the falts into a series of rapids;
but later theories, which appear
reasonable lead to the jj inclu
sion that the falls will recede
about tw o miles and then re
main stationary, and have a
height of eighty feet, instead of
one hundred and sixty-four, as
at present. Demorest's Month

While travelling vi Virginia
some time ago with a doctor we
came uron an old colored man
who was standing by a mule
hitched to an old two-wheeled
vehicle "Dis mule am balked,
bos?," sard the old man, "an' I'll
jis gib a dollah to de man what
can start Mm."
'I will do it for less than that,
uncle," said tho doctor. He
took his ca.se Jrom the carriage,
and selected a small syringe.
which he filled with morphia.
He went to the side of the mule,
and quickly 'serting the syringe
in his side pushed the conten s
into the animar! T-'c mule
reared upon his hind legs, and
giving an astonished bray snarl
ed down the road at a break
neck speed. .The aged colored
man gave a look of astonish
ment at the doctor, and with s
loud "Whoa!" started down ihe
road after the mule. In the
courso of ten miutes wo came
up to the old man stand'ng in
the road waiting for us. The
mule was nowhere in sight.
Say, boss," said the darkey,
dat stuff you put in da, mulh?"
"O ten cents will do," laugh
ingly replied the doc:;or.
"Well, bos?-, heah is twenty
cents. Squirt some of dat staff
in me. I must ketch dat mule."

''Was that your penny on the
table, Susie?" asked grandma,
as the children came in from
Sabbath-school. "I saw it after
vou went and I wan afraid you
had forgotten it."
"Oh, no, grandma; mine went
into the box all safely."
"Did you drop anything in
with it?" aked grandma:
"Wlrv no, ma'am," siid Susie,
looking surpiised.. "I. hadn't
anything to put in. You know,
I earn my penny every week by
getting up early aiad going for
the milk."
"Yes, I remember, dear. 1X
you know just what becomes of
your penny? '
"No, ma'am."
"Do you care?"
"Oh, indeed I do, a great deal.
1 want it to do good somewhere."

when you drop your penny in,
why don't you drop a prayer in,
too,th-.t yu and your penny may

"I nave: thought of that,

wouldn't it? I'm going to re
