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. '

happy to state that the bonds have been

graded school building has been laid.
It is pleasing to know that the bond

and no begging was required.

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

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

'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.

Emin Pasha has returned to Lake

istence and the administration of Cau

TnE graded school building is at last
actually under way and the miserly moss
backs who opposed the bonds are not jn

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.

Close Figures in Furniture !
Furniture is either a good investment
or a bad one ; it is about as easy to make
a mistake as it is to make a purchase.
We believe in calling a spade a spade
every time. This time we have a special
announcement to make and you won't go
far astray if you give it special attention.
We are offering a handsome Parlor Suit
for $30.00. What we have to say about
them can be said in a sentence : In make,
material and cost they defy comparison.
They are finished to perfection and they
are almost as durable as the everlasting
hills.
