Durham has cause to be proud of her newspapers. And one reason she has jool papers is because her business men staud by them and give them a liberal patronage. When the business men of Rich mond combine to arrange for the en tertainment and pleasure of visiting thousands at any event held in that city, success always attends their ef forts. Many remember the srrea Mred Fair of last May. The same committee force that so successfully conducted the "Carnival" is now hard at work arranging for the Fourteenth Annual Convention of the Virginia State Firemen's Association, to be held in Richmond.

Mr. Simmons has hosts of friends all over North Carolina who resent with indignation belonging to either of the three classes mentioned. Kkmakkim; on the judiciary system of Virginia and the need of a change in existing conditions the Newport News Hi.ralil pays North Carolina the following high compliment: 1 he State of North Carolina has the best judiciary system of any State in the Cniou, and when our Consti tutional convention assembles and comes to the duty of remodelling the Virginia judiciary, it can do no bet ter than to carefully study the North Carolina system and, in the opinion of some very able lawyers, can do no better than to copy after it. 1 11 k promised tropical or West In dian storm which was to .sweeii awav the hot wave along the Atlantic coast last week, switched off" on reaching the Florida Keys arid followed the Gulf coast, wreaking its fury on the Texas shore line and interior Satur day night and Sundav morning.

COMPULSORY EDUCATION. The following will be of interest as shorting the tenden.-v toward com pulsory education in this Slate.

"No,"' and 18 did not answer. In the trades, 2'J0 an swered -Yes,"' 11 "No." and .S.'J did not answer. In the miscellaneous factories, L';t answered "Yes." 10 "No." and mJ0 did nol answer. We do not know that Nort li Caro lina is yet ready for compulsory edu cation, but it is coining. -The dis position of the people is inclined that way. Tiik Durham IlrraM, referring to 4 Ifii. Carr's candidacy for the I'nitcd States Senate, says: Kven a month ago we thought Mr. Carr's chances for the Senatorship were slim, but we believe he is gain ing every day, and if he keeps it up until the election we expect to see him elected.

But. in " taking their meas ure." regard should also be had for their unbounded love of their State and its people, and the iialiticat ions which they possess in such eminent degree to serve their constituency. It was a hard and long-drawn-out contest in the convention hen; last Thurs day the most stubbornly contested one within the recollection of the people of the Raleigh district. But no mistake was made in selectinii- the nominee, for "Kd."

The friends of Congressman Atwater stuck to him for 110 ballots. .Mr. Pou being nominated on the 111th ballot at 1 o'clock a. in., on the morning of Friday, the convention having been in contin uous session (with a short recess for sup per) since noon of Thursday. On the final ballot Mr. Pou received 1H5 votes; Mr. AY. C. Hammer, of Ran dolph, JtO; Capt. XV. B. Shaw, of Vance, L'b"; Mr. Atwater i!i. Vance would have changed its vote to Hammer if it would have nominated him, but Pou already having 20 votes more than enough to nominate him it was not done. The vote was made unanimous, on motion of Mr. Hammer, and he and the other defeated candidates, including Mr. Atwater, pledging the nominee their hearty sup port. The Randolph candidate w ho. by the way, is the editor of the Ashboro Courier, as well as a lawyer of fine ability, and chairman of his county commit tec made a splendid run. and made many friends personally among the delegates from other counties, to most of w hom he was a stranger until that day.

The National campaign will now. upon his return, start up in earnest; and in about ten days the regular appointment of a number of tine can vassers, in addition to the work of the electors and Congressional candidates, will be announced. Mr. Simmons is very earnest and determined in his work, and has the fullest confidence in the ability of the Democrats to carry North Carolina for Bryan and Stevenson by a decided majority. To my mind there has never been the slightest reason to doubt this unless, for instance, we had a fool chair man like the Republicans that would make a "bad break" in favor of the enemy. On the contrary, we've got the finest chairman in the South, admittedly, and so we have no fears. THK SENA. TollI A I. IMtlM AKV. The Slate Committee at their meeting here decided to invite "all white men who vote for Bryan and Stevenson and all who voted the Democratic State ticket" to participate in the primary for United States Senator. This will allow pretty much all the white men of the State Fast of tireensboro to do so, omit ting only the Republicans and Populists who voted against Aycock and who will vote for McKinley. If they voted the State Democratic ticket, it is not neces sary to vote any National ticket to "ipialify" themselves, it would seem. A board of control of seven members (including friends of each candidate) will canvass the returns, viz.. Clement Manly. Charles M. Bousbtv, H. A. London, F. L. Travis. A. I). Watts. J. II. l,u and B. S. Royster. The Democratic county chairmen will regulate matters in their respective coun ties and appoint two poll-holders for each precinct, who shall favor different candidate s "when possible."

The ones first sent were too large and had to be substitu ted, hence the delay, else they would have appeared on the monument (to which they add much in attractiveness) on the day it was unveiled. tin the front face of the statue is a bronze torch with pennant. On the pen nant is the follow ing succinct summary of Vance's public life: '"State legislator. Colonel C. S. A., thrice Governor, elected four times I'nited States Senator."

Thomas & Newcomb's Catchy An nouncements Complimented by a Leading Trade Journal. The Clothiers' and Haberdashers' Weekly, of New York perhaps the leading journal of its kind, devoted to the clothing, haberdashery and hat trades, has a department under the heading of 'Hints for Retailers" in which are reproduced each week the mo.-t striking, original and sug gestive advertisements coming under its notice, together with criticism of same by a well known advertising ex pert. In a recent issue wo lind the fol lowing advertisement of Thomas & Xewcomb copied from the Gold LfaF with criticism thereon: Thomas it Newcomb. of Henderson, N. C. would have made their "'pleasing prices"' doubly pleasing had they given figures. Nevertheless, the card is so trim and so restful to the eye on account of fo -o- o: COOL UNDERWEAR PLEASING PRICES. Thomas & Newcomb, Henderson, N. C. to -o the white space, that the one short-coni-iug may lie overlooked. Advertisers should learn to suit their advertising to the season. During midsummer, when the heat is intense and man's patience is strained to the breaking point, use few words and abundant; white space. It may be added in this connection that the advertisements of Thomas & Newcomb have been the subject of frequent favorable comment. They occupy a modest space it is true but they cultivate that well and make it pay them. Their idea and the cor- reel one is to employ few words, calling attention onlv to special lines, and make frequent changes. There j is nothing ambiguous about their an nouncements and what is still better no attempt to enumerate every article in stock. One great trouble with most mer chants is. that they do not permit of enough white space in their adver tisements and overlook the import ance of making frequent changes.

IThree Thousand to Five Thousand Persons Perish Ten Millions in Property Destroyed The City in Darkness and Ruins Sad Havoc Wrought by West Indian Storm. AID NEEDED FOR STRICKEN AND HELP LESS PEOPLE. One of the most awful tragedies of moderntiines has visited Galveston. The city is in ruins and the dead is estimated at from :l.000 to 5.000. while the proierty loss runs away up into the millions of dollars. Itichard Spillane, a well known Galves ton newspaper man, and day corres pondent of the Associated Press in that city, gives the following account of the disaster: BLKW OVKR .84- MILKS AN HOCK. The wreck of Galveston was brought about by a temjiest so terrible that no w.ords can adequately describe its inten sity, and by a flood which turned the city into a raging sea. The Weather Bureau records show that the wind attained a velocity of 84 miles an hour when the measuring instrument blew away, so it is impossible to tell what the maximum was. The storm begun at 2 o'clock Saturdaj, morning. Previous to that a great storm had been raging in the Gulf, and the tide w as very high. The wind at first came from the North, and was in direct opposi tion to the force from the Gulf. While the storm in the Gulf piled the water up on the beach side of the city, the North wind piled the water from the bay on the bay part of the city. About noon it became evident that the city was going to be visited with disaster. Hundreds of residences along the lieach front were hurriedly abandoned, the families fleeing to dwellings in higher por tions of the city. Kvery home was open ed to the refugees, black or white. The winds were rising constantly and it rain ed in torrents. The wind was so fierce that the rain cut like a knife. LIKE HATS IN A TRAP. By ! o'clock the waters of the Gulf and the bay met and by dark the entire city was submerged. The flooding of the elec tric light plant and the gas plants left the city in darkness. To go upon the streets was to court death. The wind was then at cyclonic velocity, roofs, cis terns, portions of buildings, telegraph poles and walls were falling and the noise of the wind and the crashing of the buildings were terrifying in the ex treme. The wind and the waters rose steadily from dark until 1:45 o'clock Sun day morning. During all this time the people of Galveston were like rats in a trap. The highest portion of the city was four to five feet under water, while iu a great majority of cases the streets were submerged to a depth of ten feet. To leave a house was to drown. To remain was to court death in the wreck age. Such it night of agony has seldom been equalled. Without apparent reason the waters suddenly began to subside at 1 :4o a. iu. Wtihiu twenty minutes they had gone down two feet and lefore daylight the streets were practically free of the waters. In the meantime the wind had veered to the South-East. St'KNEH OK HORltOil. Very few if any buildings escaped in jury. There is hardly a habitable dry house iu the city. When the people who had escaped death went out at daylight to view the tempest and the flood, they saw the most horridle sights imaginable. In the three blocks from Avenue N to Avenue I', in Tremont street, I saw eight bodies. Four corpses were in one yard. The whole of the Liusiness front for three blocks from the Gulf was stripped of every vestige of habitation, the dwell ings, the great bathing establishments, the Olympia and every structure having been either carried out to sea or its ruins piled in a pyramid far into the town, ac cording to the vagraries of the tempest. The first hurried glance over the city showed that the largest structures, sup posed to be the most substantially built, suffered the greatest. THE IIESTKCCTIOX IN DETAIL. The Orphans' Home, Twenty-first street and Avenue M, fell like a house of cards. How many dead children and refugees are in the ruins could not be as certained. Of the sick in St. Mary's Infirmary, to gether with the attendants, only eight are understood to have been saved. The Old Woman's Home, on Rosen berg avenue, collapsed, and the Rosen berg school house is a mass of wreckage. The Ball High School is but an empty shell, crushed and broken. Every church in the city, with possibly one or two ex ceptions, is in ruins. At the forts nearly all the soldiers are reported dead, they having been in temporary quarters which ' gave them no protection against the Tempest or tne nooci. No report has been received from the Catholic Orphan Asylum down the island, but it seems impossible that it could have withstood the hurricane. If it fell all the inmates were no doubt lost, for there was no aid within a mile. The bay front from end to end is in ruins. Nothing but piling and the wreck of great warehouses remain. The eleva tors lost all their upper works and their stocks are damaged by water. The life-saving station at Fort Point was carried away, the crew lieing swept across the bay fourteen miles to Texas City. I saw Captain Haines yesterday Signature of KUMMT TUCFT. NCW TOHK C1TT.
