This elec tion has been carried, and this great majority secured for Mr. Reed by the most flagrant and open bribery of voters ever seen in this city. There have been votes bought in this city before. Hardly ever has there be:ii an election at which some buying has not been done, but it hs.. .. Tetofore been done with some at tempt at secrecy. The Republicans bought votes in every ward in this city. Perhaps the Demo crats would have bought some, too, if they had had the money to pay for them, but they did not. Ever since Mr. Reed's private secre tary drew from a bank in this city last b nday a large sum ct money, many Chatham people will let: outsiders vote, thousands of dollars in $1 and $2 bills, the air has been full of the prophecy of to-day1s reality.

It was a Bis Success The Dawning- of a Brighter Future for Wilson. Special to State Chronicle. 1 Wilson, N. C, Sept. 10, 1890. Any visitor not knowing what was going on here to-day would be very apt to think that old John Robinson's circus was in town. Ever since early yesterday even ing tobacco wagons have been coming in town from all quarters. Pitt, Nash, Wil son, Greene, Wayne, Edgecombe, John ston and other counties are represented witn tne golden weed. The large warehouse, 80xlG0 feet, is filled to overflowing, any number of wagons are waiting for a chance to un load. 1 have talked with a good manv bayers from other markets, and all that 1 Lave talked with say that the tobaacco is selling well, and that the quality, con sidering the large quantity here, is very good. The sale began this a. m. about 10:30 o'clock Our young friend, Bud Harris from Rocky Mount is the auctioneer. This being something new for the town of Wilson, of course, everybody and his wife is interested and most everybody in town, even to quite a number of the fair sex, are at the warehouse looking. At the beginning ot the sale there was no speech-making, but Capt. E. M. Pace made the request for everybody that oil not have tobacco on the floor, or were not buyers, to stand back so as to give the buyers a good chance. The sale began in a business-like manner. Up to this time half-past one o'clock one-half of what was placed on the floor bad been sold, and if all that has not as yet been unloaded be put on tho floor, it is doubtful whether or not they will get through to-day. Buyers are here from Henderson, Rockey Mount, Oxford, Durham, Rich mond and Danville. One thing beyond doubt has been demonstrated by this sale, Wilson is a good location to estab lish a tobacco market, and the live enter prising business men of this town being fully up to the situation, are determin ed not to leave a stone unturned to make the market come up to the best in the i. Slate. Another fact established is that there can be grown in this and adjoin- rug couLiiies as nnt piauesor origni Q3J tobacco as can be grown any where, ai d we hope that the eilorts of those who have started the market hero will be crowned with success.
