Ask yourself if you owe us anything, and it you do, get a postal note, money order or registered letter and forward it to our address. A failure to remit will force us to discontinue sending the paper to you. We must clear our lists of all habitual delinquents. Are vou onet The Raleigh labor paper the Workman expresses the opinion that the News and Observer did more to influence the Democratic losses in the recent election than did the Republi can paper at the Capital". The News Observer represent the extreme viws ef the party and whatever traces still exist of Bourbonism, as "onr friend the enemy," insist on calling it, the "orgin" enjoys the monopoly, thereof. The paper, and its policy, are both alike distasteful to the conservative progressive Democracy of the State, and the contest of 1888 is looming up. The recent meeting of a committee of the North Carolina Railroad stock holders, held in Greensboro, to con- Jz-loi. a'nrnrw-keir.irtri fmnl tlio T? !rli mnnfi -and Danville road for a renewal of their lease, which does not expire un til the year 1901 iias brough forth a good deal of discussion. The R. & Dl .have made the proposition for the continaanee of the lease of the North Carolkia railroad, ' and also one for the lease of the Atlantic and North Carolina railroad, which extends from - Goldsboro to Morehead . City, a dis " tance of ninety-five miles. The prop osition as to the 2Trth Carolina rail- road was, by request, submitted to a committee of fdirectors, where it now rests. It has never been before a full board of directors. The Wilmington Star and several other leading papers have voiced their unmistakable oppo sition to a release. If the lease is not renewed will the R. & D. build a connecting link between Winston and Statesville? The answer to this ques tion will have considerable bearing upon the position our people are like ly to take in this matter. A LITEKAKT EVENT. The Sentinel, has a rare treat in store for its readers. Within a few weeks we will begin the publication of an absorbiagly in teresting serial story entitled, "Lil lian Rembebt ; or, A Youno Girl's Strange Experience." It is from the talented pen of Mrs. Lotrra . Amis, of Granville county, who is suf ficiently well known to the reading public, to justify the belief that her forthcoming serial will be read by North Carolinians with more than or dinary interest. She is a regular contributor to the New York Star and other northern publications, and has just completed "The American Prince," a work of fiction which, it is said, will lay claim to being the long sought "truly Amer ican novel." Mrs. Amis is now at work on her third book. The scene of the new serial is laid in North Carolina and Alabama, and the plot is founded on actnal occur rences. The story tells of how a young North Carolina lady is suddenly con fronted with the necessity of providing for herself, and the strange experience which followed her efforts to accom plish this. A vein of mystery runs through the work, and rivits the read er's attention until the story is told The language is flowing, beautiful and charming, and the descriptions of the old Southern life are specially graphic and entertaining. It is not a tiivial, irivilous piece of fiction. It is a story that will live, long after its chapters have embellished the columns of The Sentinel, and stand in Southern lit erature, alongside of the best writings of John Estkn Cook, Christian Reed and any ot the other writers of our day in the South. Mr. Theodore B. Kingsbury the scholarly and critical editor of the Wilmington Star, in kindly announc ing the early appearance of the serial, says of the author : Mrs. Amis is a sister of the late James G Scott, of Onslow, a man of decided ability. She has literary talents and we have copied from the New York Star several poems by her as we had formerly copied from our neighbor, the Presbyterian. She ought to write an interesting story. Mr. James A. Roblnson, of the Charlotte Chronicle, also speaking of this "approaching literary event in North Carolina," adds : " It is said to be intensely interesting and is worthy of a wide perusal. The. writer knew the author well years ago and she possesses rare literary gifts and will give her readers a eharming story. She has contrib uted largely to Northern publications. Rev. Dr. Deems, Jndge Smith, Gov. Scales and numerous other scholarly gentlemen, unite in their flattering opinion of the talents of .the author of our new serial. MR. WATSON'S CLIRONICIE LET TER. Mr. Cyrus B. Watson, of Foroyth in a letter to the Raleigh Chronicle re viewing the .causes which led to the recent democratic losses in this State, adds the following : Lastly and by your kind permission and the permission ot your well-mean ins breathren of the quill, the Demo cratic press" of the State must take their share of the blame. We have a great many Democratic newspapers in the State ; twice too many. They have no settled well denned policy; each editor feeds his readers from his own platter and boasts of his own in dependence. Some serve wholesome fare some very bad hash : the peo ple partake of it and suffer from po litical dyspepsia. Many of our Democratic journals, (and they are at this day the only teachers of the masses) never think to teach our rising generation of voters the cardinal principles of the Demo cratic party. Having no foundation for their political principles they are easily shaken by an unexpected wind. Between campaigns onr papers grum ble and complain and diligently sow seeds ot dissatisfaction amonffthe peo pie. iney persuade thts xarmers and industrial classes that they need legis lation which they have not. r They indiscriminately copy and publish articles written by thriftless demagogues, calculated and intended by the writers to poison the. minds of the people against their most trusted leaders. As the campaign opens, their col unins are filled with the fulsome praise of favorites who in many cases, sadly needing all the pufls received, live on- J ly upon their flattery. Ihe stomach ot the neonle has weakened on this food indigestion has caused irritability and we have been stricken as a party by party friends, in broad open day light. The Republicans did not do it for they "knew not what did." We were stricken full in the face by friends, not so much in anger as by way of . ? 1 1T Til 1 ll . li 1 1 correction, w e wui ne an rigni, naie and hearty in 1888. The following editorial remarks on the above, expresses so near our own sentiments that we refrain from mak ing any further comment. It is clip ped from the Asheville Citizen and is doubtless from the scholarly pen of Col. John B. Cameron, who has grown grey in honorable support ot the true Democracy. He says : While there may be much that is just in the above, yet it is hardly fair to the democratic press as a whole. With but tew exceptions no class of the Democratic party is so true and taithtul, in season and out, as the edi tors of Democratic papers. While very many gentlemen give some time to political matters before conventions many ot them are candidates for ol fice, and if the local papers fail to urge their claims they give the papers the cold shoulder if not open opposi tion ; while when such papers do give preference to some candidate, which none should ever do as between Dem ocrats, all others make open warfare upon them. Ihe papers are expected to bear all sorts of party burdens, in fact are called upon for such, yet, party men take but little interest in furthering the interests and opportun ities for greater usefulness of the pa pers, .fapers, or rather the editor, are expected to take very subordinate positions in party affairs, not in way of offices, for but few of them ever want office and lust to the extent a paper refuses to become a personal organ of some leader or " would-be leaders just so much all such ignore it. If Democrats would, generally show more interest in furthering the success of their papers and in doing so make them democratic papers and not expect them to run in some man s interest or in the interest of some party clique, the papers would be more usetui and more influential. A two or five dollar subscription is not all the aid party men and party and aspirants can give a paper. General support by way of kind words influence for patronage and efforts will stimulate many a faithful, hard working Democratic editor. Let party men do more, not by gifts or subsidies ; but by such legitimate ef forts as we have suggested to help build up their true Democratic papers and we dare say none, but very few at least, will fail to prove worthjr of such and will no longer be obnoxious to the criticisms such as Mr. Watson makes. The Citizen in its issue of, the day tallowing returns to the subject and continues : In our last issue we had some obser vations upon the relations in which politicians placed themselves-towards the press, and also the relations in which the press placed itself to party. The first seem to claim a fee simple right in the property to demand the use of it for their special advantage, and take in high dudgeon any of the conceived shortcomings of party or gans. And these latter, in their zeal for the cause, have lost sight almost entirely of their business claims, and generously and zealously perform work that represents a livelihood, to be rebuked if their party fail in its ob jects, to be forgotten in its successes, or meagealy rewarded with such crumbs as are not worth the consider ation of the politician. As with the politician so with the public. They regard the newspaper as the free exponent of the public" voice, he expressive instrument of public sentiment, of public wants and of public complaint. It looks very simple, the few lines that may be de voted to any one topic, and unreason able that these few lines should be charged for, or when pay is made, they are entitled to large gratuitous addi tion. Now the newspaper business is as substantial and well defined a one as any other, requiring the capital of brain, industry, time, labor, material rents, &c., all of which come suggest ively into play on pay day when cash alone can meet the demands. The opinions of so eminent an authority as Judge Davis should iru- Eress itself on every community. In is view the newspaper is a necessity, an essential to the prosperity of the town or city in which it is printed. We are very certain the impulse given to the prosperity of Asheville and Western North Carolina is very largely attributed to the press of this city. . That will not he denied. We call attention to the following which we take from the Worcester, Mass., West Chronicle. The evils complained of, it would appear, are not localized : . "The Hon. David Davis has said among many other truthlul things, that the editor of a local newspaper in proportion to his means, does more for his town than any other ten men, and in all fairness man with .man, he ought to be supported not because you may happen to like him or admire his writings, but because-iriocar -paper is the best investment a community can make. To-dav the editors of the local papers do the most work for the least money of any men on earth. Sub scribe and advertise in your local pa per not as a charity, but as an invest ment. Hon. D. D. might also have added that editors give away dollars when other men give away dimes in the line of charities. Every "free notice" costs money, a fact that many readers do not seem to understand, will go to a dry goods merchant and solicit a dollar for benevolent purpose and they expect and get nothing more from him ; they will eome to us and although we contribute the same amount they are not satisfied ; they want a two dollar notice at least in addition and do not seem to under stand that this notice business is as much bur stock in trade as an article from a dry goods man's store." L.AXHE8 BEAD THIS. To the first lady sending us one dol lar and fifty cents for a year's sub scription to The Sentinel, during the next week, we will send the House keeper one year. The Housekeeper, the price of which is one dollar per year, is one of the best household pa pers published. 8ENTINEL CLUB RATES.

Current Comment. The campaign just passed was peculiar. It did not take in any general issue. It did not rise to the dignity of politics. It llittered itself away on personalities or local disagreements. It is no wonder Congressmen were defeated. Asheville Citizen. Mr. Powderly professes to regard a high pro tective tariff as essential to the prosperity of .the workingmen ot the country, and yet he ad vised the Knights of Iiubor in New York to cast every vote they owned or could influence for the only straight out free trader in the United States. Perhaps General Master Work man Powderly may he able to explain this ap parent inconsistency, but in the absence of such explanation, his professions appear to be irreconcilable with his advice. Washington Frce Press. Personal. Mr. David M. Vance, the Senator's son, late law reporter on the New Orleans Times-Democrat, has resigned his position on the New York Star and returned to New Orleans, where he was given a much more lucrative position on the Daily States. Wilmont Leach, eldest son of Hon. James M. Leach, died in Washington City on the 9th. His body was brought to Lexington, N. C, for burial. Senator Blair, of New Hampshire spoke at the Colored Industrial Fair in Kaleigh and de livered a public address on education. Mr. W. T. Walters, General Manager of the Atlantic Coast Line, presented Capt. James Knight a handsome silver pitcher in token of his long and faithful service. The Charlotte Chronicle learns that Mrs. Jackscn, wife of Stonewall Jackson, whose residence has been at Charlotte, will remove with her daughter and son-iu-law, Mr. Christ ian, to San Diego, Cat, where ihey will locate. Judge Boykin knows how to get a quiet Sunday. This was his first visit to our town and when he came Saturday night he asked the clerk of the Morris House if Judge Boykin had arrived. The clerk said no, and the Judge told him to send him to his room when he came. The Judge did not register until Sun day evening after dark and no one knew he was in Concord. The result was he had no callers and a quiet day to himself. Concord Times. Sanctum Scraps. Mary Anderson's father died in the Con federate service, and his remains lie in Mag nolia cemetery, at Charleston. Autumn travel into the Yosemite has been very heavy. Three-quarters of the tourists were Europeans. There is said to be a great scarcity of grass for wintering cattle in Montana Simon Cameron is the only survivor of the senate of Polk's administration now that David L. Yulee is dead. Mr. Poure-Hopkins, who introduced steel pens into France, has just died, aged 85 years. The Pasteur institute f mid, Paris, reached the sum of 1,443,000 francs. Ramon Vejar, of Pomona, Cal. , killed a four-legged quail, which is now in the hands of a local taxidermist. Gen. Lew Wallace is writing his romance of Turkish life at the rate of 250 to 300 words a day. Dwight L. Moody will this winter pursue his evangelistic labors in the south. The mountains on the upper San Joaquin river, California, are covered with deer, bears and lions. The Rochestsr (N. Y.) Democrat speaks of a double apartment nest found in that vicin ity lately, with two broods of American sparrows, separated by a horsehair partition. Minister Pendleton is said to have become closely attached to his home and duties in the German capital. One thousand negroes have joined the church at Columbia, S. C, since the earth quake.

O. T uomjixon's Priis ' Store. One of Maine's Eccentrics. One of Maine's many cranks lives in Lewis ton, who thinks he is the Saviour. He is over 60, has long white hair and beard, wears long coat and cape of bright red, a tall white hat with a broad white band and flowing ends, white trousers and moccasins. He also carries a white umbrella and a very gorgeous horse blanket for cold weather. Ha makes an occasional dime by selling his photo graph, on the back of which is this inscrip tion: "Elias Gove, Emanuel the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, who baptized himself with tho aid of the Holy Ghost, and Is the son of Dorothy Jane Gove, who translated his spirit from God." New York Son. Two Well Known Characters. Two well known characters among the Onondaga Indians have recently died. One was Aunt Cynthia Farrar, famous for her wealth. . She kept a bank account at Syra cuse, loaned thousands of dollars, and bought the lands of her debtors when thoy could not repay her. She owned, after the Tftinr manner of title, more than 500 acres of land, worth $100 per acre. She began her career as a manufacturer of bead work. The other celebrity was Aunt Dinah, an Onon daga of pure blood, and believed to be 108 years old when she died. She was feeble and totally blind, but had good use of her mental faculties. New York Sun. Gen. Banks Daughter. Gen. Banks' daughter Maud, who is play ing in emotional parts in the eastern states, is meeting with considerable favor. ' "The secret of her success," says a recent critic, "seems to be a simple earnestness of feeling, combined with an admirable enunciation, a distinguished stage presence and much quiet dignity, which never degenerates into self- assertion. " No genius is alleged,, but this does not militate against her. The world does not insist upon genius in an actress now. Philadelphia Times. Six Old Boston Editors. The fact that six editors of Boston have lived to be 80 years old or more Maj. Ben Russell having died at 73, Joseph F. Buching- ham at 81, William Clapp at 82, Nathaniel Greene at 80, Nathaniel Hale at 73, and John S. Sleeper at 80 is mentioned as indicating that "journalism at the Hub evidently pro motes longevity." Those who remember the papers of former years will readily agree that there was nothing in the conducting of them that tended to shorten life. Detroit Free Press. A Man v no Sleeps ?ot. Rome has started an attraction to rival the fasting man, Succi, at Milan. This is a man named Ranzani, who has not slept for eigh teen days. He exercises the callings of house porter and shoemaker, and, after working at his last all day, walks about all night, keep ing himself awake by plunging his head from time to time in cold water and using smelling salts. Chicago Tunes. An "Epitaph Club." In Sioux City, the youngest of Iowa towns, and at the present time pretty near the most enterprising, they have what they call an Epitaph club. Everything good that member of it does for the city, to advance its growth or to add to its civilization or charity, is treasured up by tho iopls to be placed on his epitaph at death. A New Sloop.-, Mr. H. P. Kingsland, of the New York Yacht club, has a new sloop, the Florida, which is 178 feet 9 nine inches long. Though resembling very much an English cutter in design, she carries a centerboard. Her main boom is 66 feet long, and she ranks in import ance with the Mayflower, the Puritan, the Priscilla and the Atlantic. Peanuts Will be Cheap. The small boys may be grateful to learn that peanuts ore likely to be as cheap, if not cheaper, for the next year than in the past. The total available supply for consumption to Sept 30, 1887, is 3,479,700 bushels. The consumption last year was 2,905,000 bushels, thus giving un increase in the supply of 574,- 700 bushels. A New Illustrated Paper. Rumors are afloat that a large illustrated paper of the literary type of Harper's and Leslie's is possible m the near future. The peculiarity of it will be that the illustrations of the day ore to bo in colored plates like those which are now used for cartoons in The Judge and Puck. New York Tribune. Snnset's Literary Work. Of his leisure moments while abroad, Sun set Cox says: "Have I done any literary work Yes, a little. I have written two small books, called 'My Summer at Prinkipo' and 'Among the Princess Isles, or the Diversions of Diplomat.' I do not know, though; that will publish either of them as yet." Bogus Gold Badges. Several years ago gold badges, at a cost of $40 each, wero presented to tho members of the Yonkers (N. Y.) city council for some re markably good ordinance that they had passed. The gold leaf having worn off the honest aldermen find themselves in possession of leaden ones. Salmon Flshlnj. The warm summer and early fall in Call fornia interfered seriously with salmoa fish ing in the Sacramento river. The fish seemed too languid to bito, and sought the deep, still holes, where they lay on the bottom and died in large numbers. A Lang Trip. George B. Thayer, son of ex-Senator Thayer, of Connecticut, who started from Vernon, Conn., on April 10 on a bicycling trip, has just returned, after finishing 4,224 miles on his wheel. He went as far as the Pacific coast, made about sixty miles a day, had no adventures, and spent but f 275. Worked Too Bard. Professor Whitney, of Yale college, has been working too hard on the new diction ary, and, in consequence, will have to give up his classes in the Sheffield Scientific school for several months at least. Senator Mahone. Senator Mahone wrill bid farewell to poli tics at the expiration of his term as senator and will go into the real estate business at Washington, where he has recently made large investments.
