It is gratifying to know that sewer pipe is being pretty generally placed round about. When all the fellows who want omce get a job, the national capital will have to be moved down to Texas to give them standing room. And even then there will be a few more to be accommodated. Makcii is about gone, and while other towns have been going up in a cloud of smoke, Durham has not had a single tire. This is all on account of the fire alarm system, which is so arranged a9 to indi cate the location of a probable blaze several days in advance, so that it can be squelched in time. IHX5 MAKE IT UNANIMOUS. Postmaster-General Bissell ha9 decided that the appointment of post master fehall in a measure, at least be de cided by the people in the locality which he is to serve. Accordingly the friends of Bick Hlackwell this morning started a peti tion in this community and those friends are seeking signers. We hear it stated that the ghouls, vul turesand vampires who, with nothing to recommend them but their impudence, audacity, and money which they have 9tolen from friend?, have sent statements to Washington in which the character and reputation of Colonel Buck Black well are impugned and maligned. It may be true that in his big book of life Buck Blackwell has written some pages which could not be endorsed yet pages which he would not write again, and we say that the hell-puked and slimy scum of scoundrelism that would to day exhume from the coffin lids the skeletons which might have been misfortunes, and rattle the dried and almost decayed bones in the face of his friends, would not stop to rob the grave of any decency or any buried honor. The slim' snakes of to day, in the meshes of their malignity against poor Buck Blackwell, seem, it appears, to forget that they arc not invulnerable. In their inhuman and ghoulish glee to gloat over laxities of another, happening years ago, they forget to remember that if hell were industriously raked with a fine toothed comb, and the combined product condensed into the form of one man, there would not be such a miserable miscreant as the scamp and scalawag who has gone into the grave and become a character despoiler instead of a body snatcher. Honest Buck Blackwell deserves the Durham postoflice. lie was the man who builded Durham and he was the man who befriended the poor, the needy and the oppressed. And if politics cuts any figure, he was the man who in the days of his successes, contributed always and contributed largely to the success of the democratic ticket. If the citizens of Durham allow some lame duck and arid ass to take the place which, for a dozen reasons, belongs to old Buck Blackwell, then The Globe wants to say that gratitude anil justice are not civen here. Every man, woman and child, who knows Buck Blackwell and the history of Durham, should rush to sign the peti tion which is now being circulated. U K NEED HOUSES. TiiE Gloije has had occasion to refer with painful frequency to the lack of dwelling houses in Durham, and the wonderful obstacle which the absence of such houses was proving in the way of the now rapid growth of the city. There is hardly a day but w hat we hear of people wanting to locate and the fact that they do not come al once is simply for the reason that they cannot get houses either to live in or do business in. A few property owners have seen the point and invested in buildings which are paying a handsome profit ; but these are a mere drop in the ocean toward supplying the demand which is growing greater every day and which should cause the owners of vacant lo!s to begin to figure as to the probable outcome. A few days ago The Globe told of a shoe factory which was to be started at once in this city, Mu. C. II. Doughty, who was to be the man in charge, having notified us of his intention to commence work during the present month. This 'M'MAOi DAlL,J UJLUliJi, THUliSoX, MAltUH morning we receive the following letter from that gentleman which explains itself. Gkeessboro, X. C. March 22, 18WJ. Editor of Globe, Durham, X. C: Dear Sir In consequence of my not being able to secure a house for my fam ily, which consists of five children, whom I can not leave here without protection indefinitely, I am forced to postpone my removal to Durham. And so it goes we hear it on all 9ides and from every quarter. We want peo ple to come, and ask them to come, and tell them what a wonderfnl place Durham is, and just as they are convinced and get ready to pull up stakes, we coolly inform them that we have no room for them and suppose they had better stay where they are. And the question comes up: Can we afford to lose such an institution as Mr. Doudni v proposes to establish an insti tution which will bring fifty or a hun dred new people to the city, simply for the lack of a decent dwelling in which he could ask his family to live ? Can we afford to have it go out that Durham will not take care of these who may come that we are filled up and have, to all intents and purposes, a fin ished town? This matter of houses, or rather the lack of them, is getting to be serious, and should call forth immediate action on the part of citizens who are progres sive and who want to sec the town plunge ahead. Xo better field was ever offered for the business of the building loan association than in Durham at this particular period in its history, and The Glore is glad to see them coming in and getting clown to work. SOME FOOLISHNESS. The California legislature is alter the cir culation editor with a lav making circulation misrepresentation a penal offense. Here in the East the circulation editor is a j?ood joke. The above from the Washington Post treats with levity a very serious matter. It was only the other day that Dr. Dana, of the New York Sun held that a man who swore to his circulation was nec essarily a liar. But that is not truev The newspaper directors of the country all insist that statements of circulation be accompa nied with affidavits; that statements made at random are no good. If an affidavit concerning newspaper circulation Is worth nothing, then an affidavit is not necessary, for results in courts of justice. The affidavit, when a man becomes a perjuror of his statements are proven false, is of most wonderful importance and of necessity carries weight not found in a verbal statement. Long live the affidavit circulation man, because he talks cold and clammy facts when facts are facts. TO 1JE SURE. The pension office has been the means of re turning a husband and wife who had been separated for a quarter of a century, each be lieving the other to be dead. We trust Colo nel Fairhrother, of Durham, N. C, will put down a mark to the credit of that institution. New York Commercial Advertiser. To be sure. The pension office is not wholly and really bad. It has been the victim of frauds and the anti-room of thieves who would plunder the nation. It has been the place wherein diseased scoundrels who contracted a disease twenty years after the war, in a house of questionable character, could go and re ceive a pension for an honorable wound which he never received. The pension bureau has become a pub lic scandal, and The Advertiser kuows it. But we give it credit for one act dur ing its desperate and wicked career which is truly good. Name the next Act. GOOD ADVICK. The New York Sun gives tlm advice : We must repeat our warning against pneumonia, the most dangerous disease which prevails in the city, and which is extraordinarily prevalent at this time. The. records show that there were as many as 249 fatal cases of it here last week, a greater number than there has been in any other week of the year. In a majority of cases the inciting cause of the disease i "catching cold" and neg lecting it. Half the deaths from it might be prevented by treatment, or by the adoption of means to cure the cold as soon as it is caught. Colds are even more dangerous at this season than in the winter or summer season. Be on the guard all the time against taking a cold. Look out for it if you take it. Gladstone goes to bed and sends for a doctor whenever he has a cold, and consequently he always gets well in a very short time. Pneumonia is not the only disease which is brought on by cold ; it is but one of the many deadly diseases which are due to it : yet a full quarter of all the deaths in these times are from pneumonia. Be on guard, we repeat, against letting a cold fasten it self upon yon. Tde Postal Telegraph company now gives it out that material is on hand at Kalelgh, and that the company will it once come to Durham. This is cheerful information, and as it is authentic, there is cause for great, general and enthusi astic rejoicing. Get in with your copy for that Spring edition. It will please all. AT RANDOM.

John Scales wants to be appointed minister well, any place, where he cannot only earn, but col lect his salary. It is now pretty generally understood tluit Captain Cheatham, of the D. Sc N.. will not wear Chin Whiskers during the summer. We learn that Col. Greek O'Anduews, an Irish gentleman of Raleigh, will soon go to Ireland and kill all the snakes there. In a talk with Colonel Andrews this morning, who is also an uncle to Col. A. B. Andrews, an Italian gentleman of the li. & D., Mr. O'An duews stated that he was of the opinion that 3?Snakes werePizen. Col. Sam Adams went to his room last night, turned on the hose and was drowned before people could reach him with Sponges. m Col. Leo D.
