J" Sir- y ' r " r Jm iDSBORO, N. 0. -SATURDAY, JUNE 10, 1882.;j -: ':' 'QLT " L , . Hon. '()) til Dockery is the choice of quite a large number of leading Republicans itf this section or the State 1 For Congressman at Large, and "would poll the i full strength of the party if nominated. Col. Dockery is one of the ablest debaters In the Republican1 party in North Carolina; Col. I; J. Youngish also a candidate," and, has some followers in this section of the State. Either of these gen tlemen wonld receive the hearty support of the Republicans and the Independent men of the East Middle and Western sections, we hope that the State Convention will find it to their advantage to select ono of these gentlemen for Congressman at Large. THE LIBERAL CONVENTION, 0. H. DOCKERY NOMINATED FOB ' i Z , CONGRESS AT LARGE. , , . On ' Wednesday last at 1:30 p, m. the Anti-Prohibition Conven tion met' at Metropohtal Hall. Tlid riom ber of delegates presen t was not large, as they, with the help of casual spectators, werojust able to fill the hall. Tbe convene tion had about 30 negroes and 120 white delegates, oi wbom perhaps 40 were Democrat?. r There was great cheering as a tall form, encased in a black suit, meandered iown the aisle. - It was Col. Johnson, of Mecklenburg,and he acknowledged tbe. compliment with a courtly bow as he reached the region of the stage. There were a number of the delegates who figured two years ago among what was known as the "Independent Democrats," who ran for various offices and general lv "got left." Chatham county had a number of these delegates. Ool.'Jobnson called the conven tion to order. The election of offl cers was then .held. ' Col. W. A. Moore moved that Col. Johneon be declared chairman by acclama tion, complimentary as aman'of courage to iace the Bourbon De- Ool.'ii Johnson expressed his thanks fon the compliment confer red, and said he 'was proud that independent thought was abroad in the land. Pronibition was an attempt to bring every free man ' in North ! Carolina1 under bonds. He asked if the people were bound tO Keep Cne preBBUS uwuiitio uu their heirs and successors in pow er forever. while be and others had been abased for acting they felt. He said reform was necessary, and the people should h&ve the Softer to elect their County Commissioners and Mag iatrates!;!'. ,. ' , . Mr. T. KDeveraux was called for and in response made an able speech.' 1 Col. Ike Young was called and responded in his usual way, after which. Oapt. E. N. Powers rose and placed 0. H. Dockery In nom ination for Congress at Large, and Natr. Atkinson appealed to bis Democratic friends to tear from ' their breasts every ieenngorop- position to Mr. Dockery, and place his name in triumph at the head of their ticket. v"' -' .;) ) ; . Col.'

ED AND COMES TO GRIEF. t ' iWinston, May 31, !82 1 1; thought ' the ' readers of yonr variable paper woud be interested in a brief account of the proceed ings of oar township meeting, and tbe means resorted toby the "half- tresis," find those working in their wrfiuereat to orivent any of th9 l laboring men from taking part in the election of delegates to the County CoaveDtioD. v. .Tbe.' e7:coD8titated chrism an of the Township' Executive Com mittee issued hiaeallfor a meeting at 10 o'clock 'a. f. ,69 Todaa'ay last; tye'are1 satisfied that ' this .was done in order that the "half breeds" might select such dele gates as "Would db their master's bidding., "The pomp without pow er'' as the twinkling star so well says,' What other object could he have had; nine-tenths of tbe He publican voters of the township are laboring men, principally col ored, who work in tobacco facto ries; it wonld be impossible for ibem to attend a meeting at that hoar without sacrifice to them selves and employers, whose inter est we respect. As soon as the action of the self constituted chairman became known, (I say self constituted be- cause nobody now living here knows when nor how he was elected to that position,) the mutterings of iaoorfng men weie so loud and deep that tbe approach of a storm was so unmistakable that he was forced to consent that the meeting might be at 1 p. m., thereby gra ciously affording ns an opportuni ty of attending and you bet we were there, and elected the dele gates too good and trne men. Cpt. J. F. Hellen, Geo. Wise and A. S. Stipe: alternates, Messrs. W. A. Walker, 0. M. Webb aud Rev. R. Smith. The "half-breeds" put in nomination, through Col Martin, revenue officer, one of Geo. B little lambs, Messrs. D. H. Starback, P. A. Wilson and Geo. Wise, The latter was the tub to the whale; they received eleven votes, mostly revenue officers, and those having relations in the of fice. The vote was taken by ris ing, our ticket received about two hundred votes; the self-constituted chairman voted for himself, as it is said be did when he was a mem ber of the State Executive Com mitteeand wanted to-go to Chi cagoasa delegate, professing all the. time to be for Gen. Grant and every time vol ing for Gen. Sher man. Gen. Abbott told the reason why. .

Editor Star ; Pleaeo allow ' me space in yonr valuable paper to say a few words in regard to the Republicans of the 2nd Congres sional District, and the State at large, as we are near the eaves of a very grand and important cam paign, and it seems to 019 that the Republican party are not aroused in the political attitude to gain victory, and without a mora inter- mated concintration victory is lost to us. ' . I see the names of Democracts mentioned for Congressman at Large,' and tbey are using the names of the very beet men for that position, and why in the name of providence don't I see some name mentioned for that position. Mast the delegates go to Raleigh on the 14th of Jane and select some one withoat tbe least knowledge of his characterises, or abilities, or morals, or should we have some knowledge of the man. Now, Mr. Editor, I will suggest to yon the name of 0. H. Dockery. In my opinion he is a available man for Congressman at Large, and with bis name at the head of the Republican party victory will be almost assared, and let us raise oar banners for bim, and we will have a man of whom the east will be proud, and. the west likewise will concentrate with with us as a true example of baman pride. And now, Mr. iiaitor, let me call tbe attention of the Eepubli cans of 2nd Congressional District to one thing they have not thought of, apd it is one of the grandest episodes in humanity, and that ie, recognition of one of your own race where yon have the power to do so. This distriot has failed to do their part toward. their color, and if I should be allowed to say anything in regard to the Sad dft triot, and who shall dictate, and the leading Republican of Jones county are with me, that the name of Geo, T. Wassom is among the nrst in thoir estimation. We coq gratalate yoa on the bold stand yon take for the race, and if nom 9 a 1 maiea ana eiectea you win, . no doubt be an honor tojt. There are others I could pay. the same ibnte, such as J. C. Dancy, I. B. Abbott," J. C. ' Price, Ji., J. E. O'Hara, and a host of others. ' ' 0. F. "M. SlMMONU.
