Whiohard, editor of the Greenville Reflector, was one of the marshals at the Wcldon fair. As such he had good opportunity for observing the gambling that was carried on there, as spoken of in the Gold Lkak last week. On his return home he writes un the fair and concludes as follows: I'arring one evil we would vote the j fair a success, but in our eyes that one evil more than offset all the good and turned us very much against fairs. It was the gambling. Never in our life did wesee such dens of gambling and lllKlIliy lib IVtlC 1111U1 1 1 IV- Kill lU'lllU Gambling in its worst forms was rife and in some instances it was equal to highway robbery. On Wednesday we counted 21 stands erected for carrying on this nefarious work, and on Thurs day the number looked to be even larger. The men running these dens paid all the way from $20 to S150, according to the immensity of the swindle, for the privilege ot operating within the enclosure. We spoke to the j Globe, announced the unpleasant news Secretary about such evils being ad- of its suspension. We regret this ex mi tted to the grounds, and he said it The QMg & did not meet his approval but tne D1-1 . rectors allowed it and he could not i progressive paper, bright and newsy prevent it. The amount erf money J and deserved a better fate. It was a swindled out of the people cannot be credit to Durham and to Mr. Edward estimated. Of course the people who j A Qpitam, the editor, and his able get swindled arc in a measure as mean j . . . . b , , iiiu. ir corps of assistants. 1 he Glove was as the men wno hold the tricks, for ; 1 they expect to get the gambler's money intelligently conducted and made without rendering a just equivalent and j the odds being against them come out heavy losers. Yet if the gambling dens did not come in the way to tempt the neonle the eamblinrr would not exist. It should be suppressed not allowed in the fair grounds where it is expected that jicoplc of character may go who dislike to come in contact with such vices. Our word for it, cither the! uamblinc or the fairs must co. ,P1 , , , f 1 . . 1,Jh "".uiiuMiujuiui ununn.y gamblmg at our btate fairs: There is one thing admitted at a number of our btate lairs which should be prohibited, the State Fair held at Raleigh a lew weeks ago l icing one ot Ihom I ho fvil iv r U'K 1 tn iu'nt fit is the set of robbers,who call themselves gamblers.

We have seen good honest men stand -s- and lose five dollar bill after five dol- The good effects of the last State lar bill. They carried away from a fair we attended recently more money than the fair took in. This money is taken out of the State for which we get nothing in return. This should be stopped and if the press of the State will do its part they will not be allowed on any fair grounds in the State next year. We believe if it is announced that no gambling will be allowed at our fairs next year that the attendance will be increased at least 25 per cent. Peterst.L'kc;, Va., had a disastrous fire last week. Several business houses in the principal part of the city were destroyed. Loss about $750,000. In surance $250, 000. Lieut. Geo. Crich ton, of the police force, lost his life in the attempt to save another person. He went into one of the burning buildings and the wall fell in upon him. He leaves a wife and six child ren in destitute circumstances. The citizens of Petersburg and Richmond are raising a fund for their benefit. It has reached nearly $2,000 up to the present time. COL. LEON I DAS L. POLK. We take pleasure in presenting our readers this week a portrait of one of North Carolina's most widely known and popular citizen?, Col. L. L. Polk, together with a brief sktc'ii of his life. For this wc are indebted to the South ern Cultivator and Dixie Banner, of Atlanta, Ga., one of the finest agricul tural publications in the country. The likeness as vi!i !e seen by those who have tne pleasure ofan acquintance with the original is a fair one but it by no means flatters him. Indeed, we do not think it dv cs the gillant and good looking Colonel justice. As a North Carolinian who has been the recipient of repeated and distin guished honors abroad we are proud of Col. Polk. The honor paid him by the very flattering invitation to visit the Atlanta Exposition and deliver an address ; and the conveyance of him self and party thither in a special car under escoit of a committer of prominent gentlemen of that city; and the courtesies and attentions received while there was a high compliment to Col. Polk and it was a compliment to North Carolina as well. His address was a splendid effort in every respect. It was listened to by thousands of peo ple and added another laurel to the chaplet of his fame as an apt and ready speaker who by his grace of manner and polished bearing wins the plaudits and admiration of his hearers whether he is addressing a cultivated audience ociore the graduating class at some female seminary, speaking to a pro miscous assemblage at an agricultural fair or talking to gathering of the "horny handed sons of toil" the bone ami sinew of the land endeavor ing to teach the fanners how tc make two blades of corn or grass grow where only one grew before. Mr. Josqduis Daniels, editor ot tne State Chronicle, who was one of the j)arty tnat accompanied Col. Polk to At,anla that gentleman was given an ovation. "He thrilled "the great gathering ot people. His speech was pronounced one of the finest ever made in (leorgia." We will publish the speech in full next week. THE Dl'lJli A.M (JLOJiK SUSPENDS.
