' ESTABLISHED 1856.)
THE PEOPLE'S FPZ5S. (FOUNDED 1827.) J. B. "WHITAKER, Jb., Editor and Manager. NOTICE. A Bine Mark here is to call attention the date to which your subscription is paid. Remittances are desired from those in ar rears. This country needs independence of Hannaiem and Reediem. The list of contributions to the Hospital for last month is rather short. Make it longer for April. The contest over the Democratic nomination for Mayor promises to be lively. After the primary, let the successful candidate be the candidate and receive the loyal support of every Democrat. Hanna is not expected to relish the idea of Minister Woodford speaking of McKinley as "my President." Hanna, doubtless, is of the opinion that he owns, by right of purchase, the copyright to that expression. The intervention with the colored editor did not produce a permanent armistice. His last week's issue bristles with interrogation points that may arouse profane exclama tions in the minds of the white bosses. Railroad Commissioner Galdwell's mind is, evidently, quite subject to change. He has now withdrawn his resignation and if Russell gets him out it will have to be by the bounc ing process. Bui, then, the Governor is a bouncer from Bounceryille. Spain threw another insult into the face of the United States on Saturday, when General Blanco snubbed General Lee and refused to bid him goodbye. Blanco displayed less manners than obtain in the prize ring, but his action was in keeping with Spanish malice. They say that Butler and Russell are at odds over the railroad lease matter. If more of this stripe would become antagonistic and cease their conspiracies it might be better for the people. It would seem, however, that the people have learned enough of the manipulations of these pie-ous patriots in "ways that are dark and tricks that are vain" to let them everlastingly alone. If the Republicans should control city, affairs for two years longer, we may have an administration even more distasteful than .hat of the past two years. The people of W ins - ton cannot afford to risk it. The danger that confronts them should inspire harmony and earnestness among all who have the best inter ests of the city at heart. It is a time when patriotism and not pietriotism should be in command. By the way Butler was snowed under by the Populist Executive Committee there is ground for the suspicion that the Boss Pop Is losing his grip on his party in this State There are evidences, also, that he is receiving the cold shoulder as Chair man of the National Executive Com mittee of his party. Nevertheless, the frigidity in State and nation has not yet reached so low a mark as to make it exactly safe to withdraw the admonition : "Keep an eye on Butler I" It is a travesty upon statesman ship that the "power behind the throne" in the administration of the affairs of this country is a man con victed of bribery by a Senatorial committee from his own State. Such is Marcus Aurelius Hanna, the great boodler of the Republican party and the chief and most trusted adviser of the man'who occupies the Preelden tial chair by reason of the boodle tactics of the aforesaid Marcus Aure lius. Easteb visitors found the Court house environments about the same as last year, only more bo cracked walks, shattered curbing and bare lawns, barring a stray sprig here and there, and .altogether presenting in harmonious surroundings to the prettiest Courthouse in the State A beautiful spot, Indeed, could the square be made an attraction to the visitor and a delight to the resident and a pity it is that it is permitted to remain an eye-sore" to all beholders. The waiting policy has applied in this matter to a very aggravating extent and the end is not in sight. Maybe it will be differ ent next Easter maybe not. It should be. A decision handed down by- the State Supreme Court last week settles the mooted question as to whether or not more' than one office- may be held at the same time by one in dividual. The Court says no, hold ing that Article XIV, section 7, of the Constitution expressly forbids the holding of two offices at the same time. The Court says : "The officer has a right to elect which of the two he will have and retain, but his elec tion must be deemed to be made when he accepts .and qualifies for the second. The public has a right to know which Is held and which is surrendered. It should not be left to chance or to the ..uncertain and fl actuating whim of the oSae-holder to determine." Double ofSce holders will be wise to make early selection cf the J I-ice tbej prefer to keep. STILL. UNCERTAIN. The long looked for message of the President has gone to Congress and that message advocates armed inter vention if it is necessary to stop the war in Cuba and. establish a stable government there, and yet the situa tion remains clouded by uncertainty as to whether or not there will be war-between Spain and the United States, an uncertainty which it was expected would be speedily dispelled after the reception of the message by Congress, but which, it now appears, may linger for an indefinite period, because of the shrewdness of Spanish diplomacy in her latest pretence of a purpose to establish a satisfactory government upon the island. The responsibility of the situation ia now upon Congress, in which body there have been many warlike declarations, much fighting by word of mouth. That was when the re sponsibility was upon the President. How will that body act now that the opportunity for action has arrived? Will it take the bull by the horns, or will it yield to the President's request and again place the responsibility upon the Chief Executive by trans ferring to him the power to declare war when, in his judgment, the neces sity for such action arises ? There may be some friction be tween the .President ana congress upon two" points in his message. Some think that intervention and in dependence should go hand In hand and some think that the time for dilly-dallying has passed and that Congress should authorize the Presi dent to use armed intervention at once. It Is xaectp;i, noweer, inai a majority in Congrecs will give sup port to the recommendations of the President, which means n endorse ment of his view that the tr ii Guba shall stop and that the U iied States will use armed force to stop it, if it cannot be stopped otherwise, and that it will be left to the Presi dent to say whether force shall be used and when. This will probably mean further diplomatic negotia tions before the final crisis is reached, in view of Spain's latest move. Time may be taken to investigate the true meaning of her proposition, although before this was sprung the President declared that he had "exhausted every effort to relieve the intolerable j condition of affairs which is at our ! doors," and although the majority of the American people have no con fidence in anything that Spain may propose and think that the time for action has fully arrived. The proceedings of Congress for the next day or two will be of supreme interest and Its action upon the President's message is awaited most anxiously. It eeefflB that delay is probable and yet the events of the next day or two may clearly define the course of the controversy. We base our opinion of delay upon the supposition that the majority of Congress, the President's own party, will accede to the request of the message that the war declaring power be entrusted to him and upon the President's brief reference to Spain's order for cessation of hostil ities in Cuba, upon which he makes this comment: "If this measure at tains a successful result, then our aspirations as a Christian, peace loving people, will - be realized. If it fails, then the fact will be only an other justification of our contem plated action." This, of course, implies the idea of time for Spain to show that her last movement is a success or a failure. Doubtless, the Democrats will go on record as favoring immediate armed intervention with the recogni tion of the independence- Guba. A short time ago there was an intima tion that enough Republicans would join them to pass such a resolution, but past experience indicates that Reed's whip will manage the Repub sans. BEWARE THfcJ GAMBLER I Under this caption, today's Char lotte Observer sounds a note of warning "against the enticements of buckeb shop gambling. TheObserv er refers to the receipt by a business man of Charlotte of a circular letter from a firm of stock.'grain, provision and cotton brokers of New York, setting forth, among ot her thingp, that they believe "the best oppor tunity of a lifetime to make money quickly is fast approaching," and soliciting "orders for the purchase or sale of cotton, grain, provisions and stocks," offering to furnish quota tions free when the business justifies it, giving rates of commission and furbishing the inform at ion that "margin deposits may be made in any local bank," to their credit, etc. All of which leads the Observer to the following timely and sensible comment: ; "The country is flooded with such letters as this, and this is where a great deal of our good Southern money goes. Sensible people ought not need to be warned against this particular class of fakirs any more than they ought to be warned against betting on the trick of the fakir who travels with a circus; but this particular form of -gambling seems to have a peculiar fascination for some men who should know better, and to such a caution is always timely. The alluring letters of this class of brokers ought to go to the waste basket along with the circulars of the green goods men." The Observer might well have gone just a step further and cautioned against the allurements of local agencies of these gambling concerns. Democratic primaries next Mon day. Let every Democrat in the city participate in them ana give us a clean, capaoie ana scraignc demo cratic ticket. Then let everybody that wants good city government stand loyally and enthusiastically by the nominees. ' WAIT What is the situation? Perhaps the best and shortest answer we can give' to the question is : We don't know. What will the final outcome be? Again we can use 'the same reply: We don't know. In view of the events of the past several weeks, opinions and forecasts do not count much. ' The policy seems to be a waiting one. The people have waited to the extent of having contracted "that tired feeling," and almost to a degree of exasperation. Butthe President says, wait I Congress, that was, a few days ago, going to slap McKinley in the face and blow Spain into atoms, says wait! Boss Reed fields his kingly sceptre over the people's representatives and says wait ! Hanna, reeking with stains of bribery charges, but still manipula tor of the boodle casket, says wait 1 Spain says wait, and at her earnest solicitation the Pope and the Powers say wait ! And the American people can do nothing but wait. While waiting, they rankle under the insults and attrocities of Spain and the murder of 266 American sailors and do not see how all these matters can be satisfactorily adjusted without giving Spain a taste of hot shot. Can it be done? Will it be done? Wait and see. Here is a note of warning from the Raleigh Post, along a line to which The Sevtinel has referred: "Avoid the frauds. Parties in New York, and possibly other cities, purporting to ba brokers, are send ing circular lettera oat to people urging them to send one hundred or more dollars with which to "specu late" on the stock and other ex changes, assuring all that large and quick profits await each investment. Whosoever sends money to such parties for any such purpose, ought to lose it, as they assuredly will, with no chance of recovery. We caution our readers to beware of these ''easy roads to fortune." There is no doubt that money is made by such schemes, but it is altogether by the broker to whom gullible folks send their money."

British land lor da i are said to own 20,000,000 acres of land in the United States, an area larger than that of Ireland. In ancient Egypt when a cat died in a private house the inmates shaved their eyebrows. The killing of cats, even accidentally, was considered a capital offense. .

Egg Rollins at the White House. Easter Monday in Washington is a great day for the children. If it is pleasant hundreds and hundreds of them gather in the back yard of the White House grounds and have a grand egg rolling celebration. Every boy and girl in the city is welcome to come on that day as the guest ot the President of the United States. At the rear of the White House there is a sloping back yard, covered with soft grass and trees. Larly in the morning the children begin to come, every one bearing hard boiled eggs ol all colors. The child with the greatest supply is the king prqieen of the day. Don't think that conscience pr vents many men from posing as heroes. - Don't worry about things that can t be remedied. Make the best o: them. Valuable to Women. ' - Especially valuable to women is Browns' Iron Bitters. Backache vanishes, headache disappears, strength takes the place of weakness, and the glow of health readily comes to the pallid cheek when this won derful remedy is taken. For sickly children or overworked men it has no equal. No home should be without this famous remedy. Browns' Iron Bitters is sold hy all dealers. EUROPEAN VIEWS. J Message War -Like and Only Delays -. .-the Crisis. - London, April 12. The evening newspapers generally regard the President's message as war-like in tone, leaving little hope for peace, and that McKinley has only delayed the crisis. NOT PEACEFUL. BtBLiN, April 12 McKinley' message is considered dilatory, but is not regarded as indicating peace r- . : , Married ob Sunday. ; . Mr. Q. P. Stanford, of Surry county, and Mtss Cornelia Venable, of Stokes, were united in marriage last Sunday, the ceremony beiDg performed at the residence of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. F. M.

Those made of patent leather are fetching with spring tailor made gowns. The swellest are made of half inch strips of the leather plaited in a pretty design and fastened with a plain gold or silver harness buckle. Black is the favorite color, though tan is also popular, and so is brown. Morocco belts are fastened with large tortoise-shell buckles treated with applied Bilver; They are stun ning and look particularly well with cotton shirt waists. Plainer belts of all sorts are supplanting the jewelled girdles used so much to brighten winter costumes. Bar pins are in again. About fifteen years ago nearly every woman owned a bar pin of one kind or an other, and she who didn't, wanted one. This pin was very convenient, and held the gown together at the neck more nrmly than the mDre graceful and smaller brooch of fancy design that succeeded it. The resur rected bar pin is somewhat sporty in design, the most fetching being a miniature coaching horn, riding crop or whip, a bunch of golf sticks, or something suggesting outdoor sport. Cun buttons were never so cheap or so pretty as they are now. This is well, for devotees of the shirt waist regard the cuff button as a very im portant item". Linked buttons are used entirely. The newest are made of silver or gold enamelled in bright red, bine, or green, and embellished with a n iral or fancy design of precious stones or mock gems sunk in. It is possible to get very pretty sleeve buttons in silver and enamel for 50 cents a pair, and then, again, it is possible to ruin a ? 100 bill in securing another pair. A man who knows probably more about the proper thing in gloves then any other dealer on . Fifth avenue says that the most fashion able shade is tea color. This is a soft, pleasing tint, just what it is called. Everybody knows how a cup of green tea looks after the- cream is added. Well, that s just the way the new gloves look. They range in tint from very strong green tea with little cream to a weak decoction witn a deal of milk in it. DELIGHTFUL SOCIAL EVENT. Given at the Home of Capt. and Sirs R. B. Glenn. A delightful impromptu entertain ment was given at the residence of Cant, and Mrs. R. B Glenn last Sat urday evening, cimpliraentary to Miss Janet Chalmers, of Virginia. The guests were received by Misses Rebecca Glenn and Janet Smith in an easy and graceful manner. - Shortly after arrival the guests were presented with a penny and a list of questions regarding tbe little coin which they were called upon to answer. Prof. Snipes was awarded the first. gentleman's prize, a handsome scarf pin, and Miss Lucretia Gorrell the first lady's prize, a vinegarette. Mr. W. M. Hendren carried off the booby prize. It was a delightful social event and every guest enjoyed the sincere hos pitality of the hostess. Diinty re f resbments were served. JOHNSON ACQUITTED. Edwards Not Tried Cheatwood Goes Free Proud of the Victory. Jailer Dee Davis returned from Al leghany Court Monday. He brought a fine ground hog home with him in a box. The jailer is proud of tbe victory he and bis associates won in clearing tbe man Johnson, charged with killing the two Murphy brothers. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty at 11 o'clock Saturday night. The Edwards murder case was con tinued and the defendant was allowed to give bond until the next term of court. Tbe bill against A. Cheatwood, charged with killing Eistep 19 years ago, was nol prossed by the Solicitor and the defendant was given bis free dom. IN THE SENATE.

REFUSED TO PIjAY. The Umpire Gave the Game to the North Carolina Team. The ball game between the North Carolina and Pennsylvania University teams was called about 3 o'clock. Tbe North Carolina boys were first to the bat and in tbis inaing made four runs. Tbe nrst man to the bat on tbe Penn sylvania team lined out a long ball and went to second, but was thrown out at third.

WHITE HOUSE DESERTED. McKinley Believes Spain Sincere in Her Latest Movement. Washington, April 12 Upon the transfer of responsibility to Congress the usual contingent deserted the White House, which is pervaded by an air of expectancy as to what course Congress will take. One of the callers on tbe President said tbe latter has a feeling of greater confldeace that some satisfactory settlement without bo til ities will be reached. He believes in the sincerity of the Spanish government in its position looking to the reform In Cuba, and that if such results be achieved they will avert war, inejeiijntn oas no teetn, put uses himself as ii he were a piece of paper wnen ne is hungry, getting his food and then wrapping himself about it, ! Advice to Consumptives There are three great reme dies that every person with weak lungs, or with consump tion itself, should understand. These remedies will cure about every case in its first stages ;"and many of those more advanced. It is only the most advanced that are hopeless. Even these are wonderfully relieved and life itself greatly prolonged. What are these remedies ? Fresh air, proper food and Scoii's Emulsion of Cod-Liver Oil with Hypo- phosphites. Be afraid of draughts but not of fresh air. i Eat nutritious food and drink plenty of milk. Do not forget that Scott's Emulsion is the oldest, the most thoroughly tested and the highest en- dorsed of all remedies for weak throats, weak lungs and j consumption in all its stages, j 50c. and $100; all druggists. 1 SCOTT 4 BOWNE, Chemists, New York.

PATRICK DONAHOE j. ... , Other Members of the Family as Warmly Advise Paine's Celery Oompo-andr Few men in this country who have lived to "clear the eigtUbarred gate which not many come in sight of, and fewer go over," have enjoyed more of the blessings of a long;. active, well spent life then Patrick A. Donahoe, the founder of the Boston Pilot. In every city, village and hamlet throughout tbe several states and territories of the Union, where the Irish-American people have settled, the name of Patrick Donahoe is spok en with respect, admiration and nf feotion. More than half a eentury ago Mr. Donahoe established the Pilot. In 1870 he engaged John Boyle O'Reilly who was its brilliant editor for twenty years. To every good cause and to eyery charity he has been a generous sub scriber. Scarcely a Catholic church in New England that has not been a recipient of his bounty. Mr. Donahoe is now eighty-six. The following open letter, sent to Wells, Richardson & Co., is, in fact, addressed to the thousandsjof friends all over the land, in whose harts and homes Patrick Donahoe has found so large a place. I recently suffered from prostras tion brought on by a protracted ill ness of a very trying character, and at the suggestion of friends who were believers in yonr remedy (Paine's celery compound) I was in duced to give it a trial. I am happy to say that the result was most satis factory, and I felt its good effect Notice. By virtue of a mortgage deed executed to R. W.

Hence I am able to recommend its use in cases like mine where the nervous system, from any cause, is run down and needs a re liable tonic. I am happy to state that two mem bers of my family have used Paine's celery compound with the most gratifying results. My daughter-in-law, Mrs. P. M. Donahoe, has re ceived the most pronounced results from its use, whilst my son, J. Frank Donahoe, tbe organist of the CatheN dral, is loud in its praise, having found it a great help in regaining his strengtn irom over worn in nis pro fession. Yes, I believe in Paine's celery compound. Patrick Donahoe. Three-fourths of all the aches, pains and disabilities that aged per sons suffer from arise plainly from retarded circulation. The slow blood stream gets choked with aa accum ulation of wasto matter that declares its presence in twinges of rheuma tism, lumbago, neuralgia ami in ability to sleep, All these unnatural conditions can be corrected and per manently done away with by vigor ously cleansing the blood and regulating the tardy circulation. Paine's celery compound is pre-eminently capable of doing this beyond any other remedy. There is nothing: vague about the sort of "good health" that is promis ed by Paine's celery compound and vouched for by men and women who have used it. It means, amoDg other things, firmer nerves, complet er d.gestion, sweeter breath and more regular bodily functions Paine's celery compound secures For st-ed Potatoes true to r.ame Lat Poindexter's Ii your aim.

Poindexter Receiver for Coal Co. By Telegraph to The Sentinel. Birmingham,- Ala., April 11. As the result of trouble between the English and American stockholders, the (Jornea Coal Co. baa gone into the hands of a receiver. Millions of dollars are involved. these where other remedies fail, bes cause Paiue's celery compound is the discovery of a great physician, who knew all that the school and text books could teach him, but more than that, he knew sick men and women, as few physicians in any age have known them. Prof El ward E. Phelps, M. D , LL O , of the Dart-, mouth medical school, was able to drive out disease from the system, because he knew where the disease was lodged and how to help the excretory organs, instead of con- fusing them as so many illogical remedies do in their effort,to cleanse the blood. Paine's celery compound encourages and strengthens the kids neys, and enables them to cleanse the blood of its waste, poisonous matters that are the direct cause of drousiness, listlessness, melancholia, blood diseases, was'ing sicknesses, headaches and that general "run down" condition that opens the door to definite orgauic diseases of the heart, kidneys and stomach, especial ly when a person is advanced in years and no longer possessed of the abundant energy that characterizes youth alone. Paine's celery compound makes the blood a bright red color, increas es its volume in the arteries aud quickens he circulation, and enables a nerve tired person to staep eight or nine hours, at a stretch. Every man or woman whose nervous strength is at all overtaxed, or whose life is a busy one in many directions, will feel the invigorating, vitalizing effect ot Paine's celery compound, and see his or her health mend from the first use of this greatest of all known invigorators and remedies.
