The school house is under way, even if Colonel One Per Centum did not get what he wanted. The Mangum street grade is at last completed. But the wind of yesterday blowed the infernal thing away. Well, Omaha made a good fight for 4 l. : ;e - t i i a I cuuvcuuuii, even u sue uui gei snowed under, isetter luck next time. Durham, as usual, will be heard from Thanksgiving day, and the Oxford asy- lum will come in for its share when the turkey is being distributed. The alliance at Indianapolis split on the sub treasury idea. No wonder; that idea is so shaped that it will split any thing possessed of usual intelligence. Chili has recovered her temper and offers to be polite if America will give her a chance- America cannot afford to be harsh with the peppery little republic. J,kt the Durham Fertilizer fraud tell the real reason for violating the law. Also let it explain why outside bags were carefully tagged and inside bags were left untagged. Almy, the New Hampshire villain who murdered his sweetheart, has had something like two years of unhealthy notoriety already and has occasioned a vast amount of mawkish sentimentality, ins execution is a long time overdue now out lias nually been fixed for the first Tuesday in November, 1802. Some people wonder why lynck law is occa sionally restored to. The Lincoln, Nebraska, State Journal ... i i ... says, wnn mucu sense: A new party must grow or die. The alliance party has not grown any during its second year of political life, but on the contrary has dwindled amazingly in the two states where it showed the greatest indepen- aent activity and strength. It is likely that it will cut no greater figure in the next presidential election than did the greenbackers when they entered the arena with a national ticket. In fact, with the sub treasury and cheap money scheme as the distinctive principles on which it will enter the contest next year, it is nothing but the old greenback party galvanized into semblance of life. ' ' THE STTI.T, PROGRESSIVE. Notwithstanding the fact that pious George "Watts, who made such ado over the fact that he had purchased Durham's school bonds, and who finalh' refused to take tuera because 01 a miseruuie imc , ta P cem wuicu uc Mk 6- unon which he had fisured, we are happy to state that the bonds have been sold and that the first brick in Durham's graded school building has been laid. It is pleasing to know that the bond purchase was unlike the same man's 1,500 contribution to the Y. M. C. A., and no begging was required. The school house is now under way and will be built Watts or no Watts Just whatever became of his elegant engravings of the stock will be found out by the children of the next genera tion. Hurrah for Durham ! Hurrah for those who bought the bonds ! IT PAYS TO TALK. The following from the News and Ob server shows that it pay9 to advertise in this country and in the papers: We think we have the smallest man in America residing here in Raleigh in the person of James Lanier. He is 21 years old, three feet six inches high, weighs 42 pounds, is perfect in form, sound in body and enjoys good health. He has a sister living in Burlington, N. C, who is a little taller than himself. W e think he and his sister are smaller than Tom Thumb and his wife, who traveled over the world and made a fortune at exhibit ing themselves. The little people above referred to are about to be restored to a long lost uncle. It is Colonel Lanier, who is a com positor in this office, and who weighs 300 pounds before eating. After eating, if the hotel authorities are to be relied upon, the colonel weighs about 400 pounds. Thia particular Colonel Lanier was born in the South Sea Islands, and at the tender age of three months was lost in the Red Sea. He floated around for sev eral years, living on seaweed and alliga tors. He struck Durham and that ended it. It was this colonel who introduced the alligator shoe. He was in a swamp one day and in attempting to kick the alligators which beset him, fastened a pair on his feet. He walked out and has since worn the alligators. Colonel Lanier says that he pro poses to get his nephew and start a one ringed circus. He will exhibit the little fellow in the Main tent and exhibit him self In the side show. We only refer to these things to show that there is real virtue in printer's ink and that this long separation of nephew and uncle has been brought about through the w ide circulation of our es- teemed and able contemDorarv. the Raleigh News and Observer For full and further particulars see small bills. NOT INVITING. Did it ever occur to yoa what a tough old world this must be to the Methodist preachers? It didn't, eh? Well, think about it for a while and then say if you do not think so. The different conferences are now on, or are just closing, and the preacher is absolutely in the hands of his bishop. One may be willing and wanting to. stay in a certain place, but that makes no dif- ference. The bishop says his say and that goes A year may have been pleasantly passed in forming new acquaintances and in gasping the brands from the burning but then the acquaintances which be come old acquaintances make no differ ence the brands which were snatched are accepted as a matter of course and the weary jog goes on. A preacher has no particular house hold goods in the way of furniture that Ps H Methodist preacher has not for if ue did tuev would all be broken and rulned in the yearly move. He simply takes life as his schedule reads he goes here and he goes there and he gets cussed roundly or praised loudly he knows not which will come and he does not seem to care. It appears that he is doing the best he can, and that is about all any of us could do whether inside or outside the church. This is to us a lot of foolishness. The Presbyterian preacher or the Baptist preacher tries his lot and if he suits he tays and if not he knows it and he takes his staff in hand and iournevs on. It w y would seem that some ministers can do more with some communities than others. Religion should be made a business proposition. If a preacher comes who is popular and who builds up his church he should be allowed to say whether or not he should remain. It was the Great Book itself which savs that bv their works ye shall kuow them But not so If a man with the Methodist preacher is running a business and employs a man who is popular and who adds to his trade that man is kept even if salaries must be advanced. But no matter about the preacher. He can be shifted here and there and with due respect to the loyal and. fearless ones, we can only compare them to a switch engine on the railroad tracks They switch the sinners here and there but they may be called to the DUBHAJM DAILY lAyBBfTVaapAXOYBUBBBy. other end of the road where there are other sinners. Long live the 3Iethodit parson ant long may he live without moving. THIS ENDS IT, 'We never did dall's tariff views cle. endorse Sam Ran 'Poor Old Chroni- This is tuff. Mr. Samuel Rasdall was a statesman who died poor. He was. honest and he wa3 able. He had convictions and he had the moral sta mina to maintain them, lie was appre ciated by both political parties, although he was an uncompromising democrat except he was in favor of protection This was because he lived in a. state which manfactures largely and which protection protected. And now after the gentleman is dead and has been deac just about a year, for farmer joe daniels who has flirted with all parties; who was educated by the republican party and who subsequently got a large slice of state prining from the democratic par ty and then crawled on his stomach for the same miserable mess of pottage be fore the last alliance legislature who is all things to all men, and a sneak on general principles, to say that he did not endorse Mr. Randall, why it is a terrible blow. Of course Randall cannot be in terviewed. But it comes as a dull and sickening thud at this time, to know that the very able editor of the very able Chronicle existing on a four thousand dollar a year steal did not endorse the Pennsylvania statesman. But m a case like tins, wbat are we going to do about it ? Emin Pasha has returned to Lake Nyanza. Emin enjoys the freedom of the interior and a black seraglio far bet ter than the restrictions of civilized ex istence and the administration of Cau casians. TnE graded school building is at last actually under way and the miserly moss backs who opposed the bonds are not jn it. The signs are not to be misunder stood the mossback must go. Colonel One Per Centum is not in it but the new school building is. Thanksgiving Proclamation. Praise and thanksgiving to (iod as required by his word is the daily duty of all individuals, and as a commonwealth it is but fit and proper that wre should cn stated occasions, as a people, render unto him, the great ruler of the universe, our united praise and thanksgiving for the many blessings and mercies we daily receive at his hands. To him we owe our civil institutions and our religious liberty which bring happiness and numberless blessings alike to the rich and poor. The people of our state have much to be thankful for. The earth has yielded up her treasures with a bounteous hand and peace, prosperity and happiness prevail within our borders Now7, therefore, that public acknowl edgement of our trust in and gratitude to-Almighty God for His great goodness to us as a state and people may be made, I, Thomas M. Holt, Governor of Noith Carolina, do hereby appoint Thursday, the 20th day of November, 1891, as a day of general thanksgiving and praise, and I earnestly request the people of the state to assemble on that day, at their usual places of worship, and offer up their thanks for the innumerable blessings and great prosperity we enjoy. And at the same time let us remember the widow and the orphan, the disabled soioier, tne poor ana amictea in our prayers, and contribute of our substance to those institutions which our people have established for their maintenance In witness whereof, I have hereunto set ray hand and caused to be affixed the great seal of the State of North Carolina, at the City of Raleigh, this the lGth day of November, in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and ninety one, and in the one hundred and sixteenth year of our American Independence.
