Carr has issued an address to the public formally an nouncing himself a candidate for United States Senator to succeed Marion Butler. To the two kaleigh morning dalies: Stop it or issue njecial (and private) editions in which to abuse each other. The public are becoming tired and disgusted with the whole business. Ckok;e White, the negro Congress man, savs he will not be a candidate for re-election. Nor is that all. He actually threatens to leave North Car olina and carry ;"),iii) negroes with him. TilK loss of such worthies as Marion Butler and Ceorge White at one time would be a consummation devoutly to I Mi wished. As this seems to be au era of good things for North Carolina there may be something in it. BitoriiKi: Morgan, of the Murphy Denioeral, announces among other things "taken on subscription" such articles as rye and corn. But whether the extract thereof or the grain in its natural state we an; left to conjecture. Willi. K Hon. F. M. Simmons1 can didacy for the United States Senate was so well known as not to need a formal declaration on his part, he has published a card to that effect, which we have pleasure of publishing in another column. Thk Democratic State Kxecutive Committee has been called to meet in Kaleigh September oth, for the pur jM)se of devising machinery for hold ing a Senatorial primary and also to transact business connected with the National campaign. K. W. I'or has withdrawn as a can didate for the Congressional nomina tion in this, the Fourth, district. This leaves the contest between Con gressman At water, of Chatham. Capt. W. B. Shaw, of Vance, and F. S. Spruill, of Franklin. Noitiu Carolina has done well in honoring the memory of her foremost and most beloved son, Zebulon Baird Vauce, in erecting the noble statue which was unveiled in the presence of admiring thousands in the capital city on Wednesday of last week. llAVisi erected a statue of Vance one of KiisijMi Worth Bajrlev is next in order. The necessary funds are in hand, we believe, and it is said Sculptor Kllicot, of Washington, who designed the Vance statue, will be awarded the contract. The statue will bo of bronze, life size. It looks like the allied forces around Pekin may yet lie overcome by tho Chinese troops by force of overwhelming numbers. The situa tion of the foreigners is extremely critical, according to latest reports. Telegraph communication is cut otT and the railroad to Tien Tsin is de stroyed. Thk I'opuliflt National Committee at Chicago endorsed the nomination of Stevenson for Vice-President, Chas. A. I owne having resigned. It was a question as to whether principles would thus be placed above partisan ship, but the latter won despite the opposition of Chairman Butler and his handful of followers. Chaklottk, which the Observer ays is reckoned by a Northern capi talist to be the Chicago of the South, is to have a brewery, the largest in the South it is said. A site has been purchased for the purpose and a 1:100.000 buildiag. with a larre ice plant attached, will be erected there on, work to be commenced inside of 80 days. Wk send fraternal greetings to our brethren of the North Carolina Tress Association at Asheville this week. and regret that we cannot be with them. Under anv circumstances would it have been a source of regret to have to forego the pleasure and profit of such meeting, but the occas ion of our detention at home makes it doubly distressing The Wilmington Messenger copies an extract from what the Gold Leat said about the candidacy of Mr. Ales- J.

In a recent issue of the Wilming ton Messenger there wa3 a communi cation written from Fayetteville in which the following paragraph ap peared: Is not the Ra eisrh correspondence of the State press rather too arbitra rily forecasting public sentiment in the matter of the United States Sena- torship? We are told almost con clusively that we must accept it as a foregone conclusion that Hon. t. M. Simmons is the choice of the whole Democratic oartv of the State, and r.nn newsnaner Writer intimates that it would be unfair for any one even to appear as a competitor against him. No good Democrat will disparage the illustrious services of Mr. Simmons, but North Carolinians, thousands or ill not foryet that to the stand taken by Wilmington we are indebted more man 10 any omei in fluence, for white supremacy in this State, and that at the fitting moment - - mm a 1 1 1 A.

Let the people de cide this matter in the Senatorial primaries. A NORTHERN OPINION OF THE NEORO. The following is from the New York Town Topics: 'Under no circumstances can mob law be justified in a civilized com munity; bat it is only fair to say that the negroes of New York have brought trouble upon themselves bv the out rageous insolence of their behavior on the streets, in tenement houses and in the cars. They have not been satisfied with being considered as good as white people; they have as sumed to be superior. The Repub lican party commuieii a gross crime against the republic by giving them votes before they were educated to the right use of the franchise, and the Republicans are always coddling and petting them by appointments in the National departments as janitors, porters and letter-carriers in order to win their ballots, rutted up by this political favoritism and presuming upon it, the negroes have made cer tain sections of New York uninhabit able for the whites, and in consc- (juence of the prevalence and arro- gance of negroes white persons find it unpleasant to pass along rixiu, Knventh :ind Kichlh iivenues. between Twenty-third and Forty-fifth streets, alter iiignttall. other racial quar ter of the city not even the Chinese quarter is so barred against the majority oT our citizens. hue these facts do not justify i) egro-bai ting, thev show that it is to some extent au application of the law of retalia tion.

Items of Personal Interest Delightful Lawn Party at Mr. C. H. Williams' Nice Sum Realized for Fairport Church, Kittkkm.. N. C, July 18. 1900. Fpitok (Ioi.d Leak: Dr. and Mrs. I). S. Rowland have lately returned from Baltimore. Mrs. Rowland went for treatment and returned very much improved. Mrs. Bob Hadley, of Lake City, Florida, is spending some time with her sister. Mrs. C. L. Whitaker. Miss Mary Kimball, of Tar River, is visiting her sister, Mrs. B. C. Allied. Miss Minnie Stone has returned from a few days visit to friends in Henderson. Miss Maggie Reid returned last Friday from Lenoir, where she had been quite ill for several weeks. She was accompanied by Mrs. Sallie Fuller, who has been with her during her illness. Her friends are glad to have her with them again and to note her improvement. Mr. J. M. Fuller, of Washington City, is here on a visit to his father. Capt. J. H. Fuller. Messrs. J. W. Moore and K. M. Person are all smiles now both boys. Miss Ellen Crudup is visiting friends in Henderson. On last Friday evening a most delightful lawn party was given at the residence of Mrand Mrs. C. 11. Williams for the benefit of Peace Chapel. It was one of the most en joyable social evenings the Kittrell people have had during the summer, owing to the etlicient management of Mrs. Williams and her charming daughters. The special features, aside from the delicious cream served, were the fortune telling by Mrs. J. S. Reid. who looked a veritable gypsy in her gay costume, and the music furnished by some of Kittrell's home talent, Messrs. John Moore, Parrv Finch. C. H. and T. S. Williams and Miss Mary Kimball. All present loud in their praises of the entertain ment alTorded by the musicians, and indeed it was a rare treat. To add zest to the occasion it was announced that tickets would be given when cream was served and the one holding most tickets would be allowed to crown some one of his choice, if not "Queen of the May," "Queen of the Night." Little Mis's Alice Person was the fortunate winner of the crown, and very happy she looked as she was enthroned upon a table to receive it from the hands of Mr. J. W. Moore. The entire evening was a decided suc cess in every way, financially as well as otherwise, for we are told that a very neat sum was received for the benefit of the Fairport church. P. QUESTION ANSWERED. Yes, August Flower still has the largest sale of any medicine in the civilized world. Your mothers' and grandmothers' never thought of using anything else for Indi gestion or Biliousness. Doctors were scarce, and they seldom heard of Appen dicitis, Nervous Prostration or Heart failure, etc. They used August Flower to cjean out the system and stop fermenta tion of undigested food, regulate the ac tion of the liver, stimulate the nervous and organic action of the system, and that is all they took when feeling dull and bad with headaches and other aches. You only need a few doses of Green's August Flower, in liquid form, to make you satisfied there is nothing serious the matter with yon. For sale bv the Dorsev Drug Co. VANCE IN BRONZE. STATUE TO THE MEMORY OF THE GREAT CAROLINIAN Unveiled in Raleigh Last Week In the Presence of Assembled Thousands nr. Battle's Admirable Address on the Life, Character and Public Services of Vance. From the Xkws find Observer of the 23rd we take the follwing: Yesterday a red letter page was written in the history of North Caro lina. It was an event simple in itself, but of immense meaning and weight. It was the drawing aside by a young lady the veil that hid from the view of the crowd the 6tatue of a man. But it is the story back of the man's life and the history of his acts that makes the scene notable. It was the unveiling of the monument erected by the people of North Carolina to their illustrious tribune, Zebulon Baird Vance. Just a few moments before 12 o'clock the drum corps of the L. O'B. Branch Camp of Veterans marched down Fayetteville street and halted in front of the Market, keeping up the rat-tat-tat of the drums. This was the signal for ths procession to form. Wright's Cornet Band joined the drum corps and struck up a popular air. The uniform of the band con trasted sharply with that of the drum mer boys who were dressed in gray with red stripes and red paint brushes in their caps. The veterans fell in next. In this body of old Confed erates were several uniforms that saw service during the Civil War. At the head of the Veterans were two Confederate flags, ono belonging to the Ladies' Memorial Association and the others to the L. O'B. Camp of Veterans. Then three military com panies arrived who had come in on a belated train. The military were ar ranged and tinally the procession moved up the street, around the Eastern side of the square, entering the capitol grounds at the Northern gate. The Wilmington company was the only one carrying a banner. The naval reserves brought up the rear, their white uniforms contrasting with the blue of the soldiers. The order of the march was as fol lows: A platoon of Raleigh police L. O 1. Branch Camp of Confeder- ate Veterans. Wright's Cornot Band. The Raleigh Light Infantry, Capt. Bernard, 42 men. The Forsyth Riflemen, of Winston, Capt. Bessent, 32 men. The Wilmington Light Infantry, Capt. White, 40 men. The two Durham companies under Capt. Woodall and Capt. Christian, 40 men each. The Franklinton Rifles, Capt. Mc Oee, 40 men. The Granville Grays, of Oxford, Capt. Landis, 40 men. The Vance Guards, of Henderson, ('apt Poythress, 56 men. The Clinton Rifles, Capt. Holmes, 24 men. The Goldsboro Rifles, Capt. Gris wold, 40 men. The Kinston Naval Reserves, Lieu tenant Person. 30 men. The New Bern Naval Reserves, Lieutenant Hill, 30 mon. Of the Confederate veterans, there were only two camps besides the L. O'B. Branch Camp that were at all well represented. The Cape Fear Camp, of Wilmington, had about 30 veterans in uniform and rank, and was led by Col. Waddell. About 100 of the R. S. Webb Camp were in line, led by Mr. V. Ballard. As the procession marched up the street a stream of visitors passed up each sidewalk, the citizens generally preferring such shade as could be gotten from the awnings and build ings on the sidewalks to the hot sun of the middle of the street. The mili tary companies kept on around the square, but the citizens cut through the walk to the stand. Owing to the fact that the crowd was scattered very much and that only a small part paraded, of those who it was intended should do so, it is very difficult to estimate the num- ber present. lhe railroads say that 7,500 people came into town Tues day and yesterday morning. If this is true, and the railroads have a more definite way .of getting at the numbers than any one else, there were not less thah 10,000 people present at the un veiling. The ceremonies took place on the Eastern part of the capitol grounds. All the park benches of the city had been secured for the occasion, and a large platform had been built, from which the orator of the day spoke. Col. Kenan, Chief Marshal, at 12:2 o'clock, announced that the ceremony would begin with an invocation by Rev. Eugene Daniel, I). D.. pastor of the Presbyterian church, of this place. Dr. Daniel delivered an impressive prayer. Then in a few choice words Col. Kenan introduced Mr. R. II. Battle, the orator of the day. Col. Kenan's introduction of Mr. Battle was comprehensive, though short and to the point. He said: "It is gratifying to know that our people havo this day furnished addi tional evidence of their intention to honor the memory of our great men. That intention has been practically manifested by individual contribu tions and au appropriation of public money by the Legislature. The re sult is the erection of that statue in its enduring form, and it represents the ideal North Carolinian. What manner of man he was. and what are the interesting and prominent fea tures of his remarkable career will be told to you by one of his most inti mate personal and oflicial friends, Hon. Richard H. Battle, whom I have the honor of presenting to you, ladies and gentlemen, as the orator of this occasion." Mr. Battle then arose and address ed the crowd. His address was a complete presentation of the life and work of Vance as a boy, student, law yer, legislator. Congressman, soldier, Governor, Senator. He said that North Carolina was not unmindful of her great men and that by common consent Vance was fixed upon as the man the people of the State delight to honor. The oration, though deliver ed from manuscript, was forcibly and clearly spoken. It consumed "more than two hours in delivery. At the conclusion of the speech Misses Epsey and Ruth Vance, ac companied by Messrs. Joseph Brown and J. D. Boushall, respectively, went to the base of the monument. At the proper time they pulled each an end of the veiling rope gently, and the veil parted and fell in" little mounds at each side of the base of the and the monument was un As the vision of the figure veiled, greeted the crowd a mightv shout went up. and the people surged and broke in volumes at the root oi the statue. After the feverish euergy had spent itself. Dr. Daniel otfercd a benediction and the .ceremony was over. THK MONUMENT. The statue is of bronze, is eight and a half feet high and represents the perfection of the sculptor's art. The likeness of the Senator is strik ing and the attitude is typical. The pedestal is eight feet and a half high, is of Mt. Airy granite and was cut by Messrs. Cooper Brothers, of this city. The entire monument is placed upon a turfed mound, four feet high. On the bottom is the word VANCE in large raised letters, and there is no other inscription. It is one of the handsomest monuments in the South. The modeling was done by Mr. H. J. Ellicot, of Washington, who is in the city and is being congratulated on everv side at the success of the work. " . LETTER FROM PARIS. A Henderson Boy in the Gay French Center off Fashion Writes of His Observations and Impressions Abroad The People, the Exposition and Other Things. I.KTTKU NO. THHEK. l'.wiis, Fiance. August 15, 1900. KitiTOK (Joi.o Leaf: The buildings of the Exposition grounds are very fine. Fountains piny in front of them and statuary is every where. I will not at tempt descriptions. The l.'nited States building is fine but rather hard to locate. In it is a post office. On the ground floor are reception rooms around the railings of the other floors are hung shields with the Stars and Stripes, one for each State, also for thf Philippines and Cuba. The building is on the left hand side of the river and is shaped like the capitol. Crossing the river I found myself among the theatres. They were almost count less. It was almost time for the show to l'gin and all those who took part were on exhibition on a little porch that is in front of each theatre. While seeing the sights my friend went into the Palace of Aztecs. A crowd of them were taken about by a guide. He came to one room and after puttingtheni all in it. closed the door. The room was perfectly bare and we were wondering what 'game they were up against"' when the room became dark. At one end it was a little darker than at the other and at that end appeared three women cover ed with phosphorus paint. Two only had their drapery on and one did not have anything on. This is Paris. The door was locked and my friend had to wait until the door was unlocked. Such are the ways of the French. They have no Sabbath in Paris. Sun day is like any other day, with the exeep ception that you hear the church bells ringing. Stores are all open find work men are at work every where, as on other days. Stores all close early here and after that are all dark. Business begins about 10 o'clock and closes at about 4 or 5 o'clock. The different boulevards going through the Exposition have flowers, trees, seats, statuary ami fountains. It is just as if you were in one grand palace. In one of thi' Exposition buildings you can walk straight ahead for 15 minutes before get ting out. We spent part of one Sunday at Yer seilles. which is almost as much a part of Paris as the Champs Elyses, at all events no one thinks of leaving Paris until he has paid a visit to the place where Louis XIV and his successors lived in splendor until the crash and ehoas of the revolu tion. The town of Verseilles is, in itself, dull and unpretentious, but the magni ficent park and palaces of the Bourbons now freely open to the public, abund antly repay repeated visits. I saw a splendid military parade, the soldiers and officers all in full uniform. They were fixing for n grand display of fireworks at night, but I did not care to wait to see that. At least one day at Verseilles should be devoted to the palace, another to the park and its dependent villas the grand Petit Trianons. I saw the foun tian which cost 2,000 every time it is started. The Petit Trianons recall the joyous, youthful Marie Antionette. This was her rural home, whither she loved to retire when wearied of the tedious cere monial of the court. In the neighboring palace of Verseilles she was a queen, weighed down with grave responsibili ties and fettered by the numberless an noyances incident tofashionable life. But here she was a happy woman, wife and mother discarding all formality, even ridiculing (unwisely as it proved) the rigid etiquette of old French royalty. It is said that on these lawns she played 'blind man's buff" and "fox and geese" and joined in all fun and frolic. The im mense park of Verseilles, with its world famous fountains and shaded avenues, groves and lawns, purple with multi tudes of statues, is still as beautiful naturally as when its picturesque allies saw. like a company of actors on a splendid stage, the brilliant court of Louis XIV, One needs many days to look through the splendid palace.' But even one day there will be a joy for ever. The clothes of the French people nil seem too big for them. We have had delightful sails up the Seine river for 10 cents. The people all spot us as Ameri cans the moment they see ns. But I am again reminded that this let ter is getting long. One sees so much when traveling in foreign hinds he knows not when to begin or where to end his account of his observations and exper iences. In September I start on a tourthrough cities of Germany, Switzerland and Italy. When I have seen Naples, Venice, Florence and Home I shall be ready to return to the I'nited States to begin medical edu cation in New York. X. The Kind Y'ou Have Always statue, 22i ture of Chas. H.

(From Our Regular Correspondent.) Raleigh. X. C, August 27. 1900. Next week Chairman Simmons and Secretary Pearsall will re-open Demo cratic headquarters here and legiu in earnest the campaign for Bryan and Stevenson. As in the State election, Chairman Simmons will put his whole heart and soul into the work and will direct and manage a brilliant campaign and canvass of the State, one which will doubtless be ns successful, for nil practi cal purposes, as the great victory of August; even if the majority for Mr. Bryan's electors is not quite ns large as that of Mr. Aycock and the amendment, it will le as certain and as decided, for never was the machinery in better shape and the chief engineer never betterqunlified or in better heart to com pass the defeat of the enemy. VANCE HTATl'E AFTERMATH. Though the crowd of visitors at the unveiling of the splendid bronze statue of Vance, last Wednesday, was not as large as expected, it was a representative one, the visitors coining from widely dis tributed sections of the State, quite a number from other States, and the oc casion was a great success. Every one recognized the striking, faithful likeness to the original, in both form and feature, as soon as the statue was unveiled by his two little grand daughters, Epsey and Ruth Vance, and it will be a popular object of interest to visitors in all the years to come. And there he stands North Carolina's greatest and most beloved son, in death as in life the people's idol f!od bless his memory ! MIXOIt MENTION. It has been decided to open the State fair this year on Monday and continue it through the entire week, Iteginning October 22nd. Friday has been desig nated as "Educational Day.'' Secretary Pogue states that the outlook points to one of the most successful fairs in the his tory of the Association. Solicitor Ed. W. Pou has formally an nounced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for Congress in this, the Fourth (Raleigh) , district. The race now appears to be between him and Congress man Atwater, though Messrs. Shaw, of Vance, and Spruill, of Franklin, will also be in the race. The vote of Wake county will be divided, chiefly between Pou and Atwater. The Democratic State Executive Com mittee has been called to meet here on the evening of September 5th, "to provide machinery for holding a Senatorial primary and for the transaction of other business connected with the National campaign." It is intimated that the question of making the "nigger" an "issue" again may be also settled by the committee at this meeting. Judge George H. Brown denies the re port that he is to be a candidate for Linked States Senator at the primary, or that he intends to seek the .nomination for Chief Justice two years hence. The Lutherans of North Carolina will hold a "Century Re-union" at China (Jrove August 2!th. Since the race riots in New York, Ohio and elsewhere North, the employment agency here has been notified not to en gage any more negro servants for service in the North "prejudice too strong at present." A new national bank for Sanford, capi tal 25,000, has been authorized by the authorities at Washington. Judge-elect W. It. Councill will take the oath of office this week, and be the first of the candidates elected on the 2nd in stant to go into office. Judge Bowman, the present judge of the Tenth district, being an appointee of the Governor to fill a vacancy, retires after the "election" of his successor, "immediately after te ascer tainment of the result in the manner pro vided by law," the State canvassers hav ing just performed that duty. There are said to be a dozen candidates for the Democratic nomination for Con gress in the Eighth district, by the con vention which meets at Lenoir Septem ber 0th. Democratic prospects are said to be bright in that district, especially with E. Spencer Blackburn as the oppos ing candidate. The cotton and other crops, through out the Eastern counties especially, are said to be in worse condition than in many years, because of the protracted torrid and dry weather of August, the hottest consecutive "spell" in thirty years. The "union" operatives at Durham are holding out and taking work at mills elsewhere, but the Erwin mill officials say they are not inconvenienced by the strike, as it was desirable to curtail pro duction at present, and instead of shut ting down for two or three weeks, the machines rendered idle by the strikers will be unused for a month or so. Over 500 operatives are still at work at this mill. It is claimed in some quarters that New England cotton manufacturers as well ns Northern labor unions and lead ers are encouraging the "organization" of Southern mill labor, because of the ad vantages which the Southern mills now have over these Northern competitors. Tom Jones, a negro "preacher," is to be hanged here Friday for the murder of a negress and her three children. LLEWXAM. See list of farms and town property for sale and rent by J. L.
