I accept the nomina tion for Representative from this dis trict with the full knowledge that Sena tor Vance was the choice of the district for his own successor, and I assure you that if I had any idea of opposing the wishes of the Democrats who honored me with the nomination of Representa tive I would resign. I have twice voted for Gov. Vance for United States Sena tor, and were I acain the -'Senator from Mecklenburg" would vote for him again. The personal relations between Gov.

He was the favorite of the Alliancemen of this district for the nomination; he went into the conven tion with their solid support; but if he had been defeated for the nomination he would have accepted the result without a murmur, and would have been found doing full duty in the lines. as he has always done in every contest between the Dera ocratic and Republican parties. A neigh bor of Senator Vance for years he knows him weli, and as one of tho moLt intelU- geiit farmers in North Carolina ho knows there is not in public or private life in this or any other State a man who has more at heart the interest of the farmer than Senator Vance, nor one who will go further in all defensible ways to pro mote that interest. No reasonable Aili anc6 D-mocrat should or would ask more than this. In speaking for himself we believe Mr. Alexander expresses the sen timents of the Democratic Alliancemen of this State who recognize the fact that their interests aud the interests of North Carolina arc identical. We didn't need any assurance as to where Mr. Alexander stood, but we are glad that he has writ ten this emphatic letter, as it shows the falsity of the reports which did both him and Senator Vance injustice, GETTING READY FOR A BIG CROWD. great for even that iron structure and it gave way, precipitating the Engine, Tender, and the 35 Cars into the river fifty feet below. The conductor, Capt.

The crew all escaped being precipitated into the river except the front brakeman, who was on the forward car at tbe time ol the accident, He started to run back to the rear end of the raiu, but the car made the plunge be tore he had gotten cle.ir of it, and he was Whirled Through lha Air, striking the water clear of the debris and falling cars.

The Senatorial Convention of tho 20th District, composed of the counties of Durham, Orange, Person, and Caswell, was held at Prospect Hill on Saturday. Messrs. Robt. G. Russell, of Durham, and Robt. S. Mitchell, of Caswell, were nominated for the Senate. Executive Committee. The following Executive Committee was chosen. H. A. Reams, of Durham: Jas. W. Terrv. of Orange. EzekielSlado of Caswell; and J. A. Long, of Person. Instructed For Vance. Tho following resolution was unani mously adopted: whereas, our Senator. Z. B. Vance. has always been the friend of agricul ture and the laboring classes, and has oeen raithtul in the discharge of his pub lic duties, we therefore recommend that our Senators give him their unwavering support for re-election to the United States Senate. Mr. Robert S. Mitchell, one of the nominees was present, and in accepting pledged his hearty support to the great Vance. Maj. John W. Graham was chairman of the convention, and Julius Johnston, secretary. The Candidates. Referring to Mr. Mitchell, the Milton Advertiser says: "Sam Mitchell is a quiet, conservative, level-headed man of affairs, who has made a success in life. Ho is well posted on all public matters and will make a wise Senator. He is well known, popular, and will work hard to make his election sure. The only fault to be found with him is that he is an old bachelor." In Raleigh that is regarded as a virtue with legislators and adds to their popularity. Mr. Russell is a successful, wide awake and intelligent citizen of Durham county. He "totes his own skillet" and does his own thinking. He is a promi nent member of the Alliance and is for Vance.
