WILL THINK FOR THEMSELVES. A Colored Man's Speech at the Insur gent Convention Saturday. Coat W. Coles, a colored Insurgent, made a short talk before the conven tion on Saturday. lie said; "Mr. Chairman I have remained silent today, not because I am not with you at heart and hand, but be cause I know there are others, far more able to speak than I, yet, did I not say a word on this occasion, I would feel that the race to which I be long and which I have learned to love had not been fully represented. I wish to say that while I am a Republican and believe in all its principles, I do not believe in any one man or set of men dictating-the way I should go in public affairs. "You may mark my words. The colored men of this county are going to think and act for themselves in the coming election. The time is long passed when the support of the colored man can be counted upon, when his interest is not considered. The Re publican party of the North, of the West, and as near to us as West Vir ginia is dealing with the Irish, the German, the Italian on business principles in politics as well as other pursuits of happiness, and in order to count upon the vetes of my people they must be dealt with on the same princi pel. I am not only speaking my senti ments, but am speaking for my race." Adams to be the Nominee. A Durham Republican is quoted as saying that ex-Congressman Thomas Settle is not yet out of the Congres sional race; that while it is true Settle has only six delegates elected for him, and itjrequires 13 to nominate, his friends claim that they can buy eight colored delegates, two in each of the counties of Durham, Granville, Cas well and Guilford. A Republican from Person who is not friendly to Settle says he is making personal at tacks on the character of Judge Adams, to force him to decline the Congressional nomination. But it is already agreed by the Republicans and those Populists who affiliate with them that Adams is to be the candid ate. Enjoyable House Party. A highly enjoyed house party was that given by Mr. Peter W. Hairston at his beautiful home at coolemee, Davie county, on the banks of the Yadkin river. The guests arrived Wednesday, Aug. 10th, and the house party ended on Monday. The Hairston place, with its hearty Southern hospi tality, its broad acres, and its simple and devoted negro dependents, brings back vividly to the mind the palmy days "befo' de war." With such sur roundings the young people enjoyed themselves to the utmost. Messrs. Robert and Ezekiel Galloway, of Winston, were among those in attend' ance. . Letters from Dr. Thomas. Mrs. H. J. Thomas received two let ters Mondav from the Doctor. They were written on August 6th. He is six miles out from Santiago on the battlefield. The situation is a sad one.

Jones made a hap py hit when he decided to give the members and some of the friends of Salem Lodge a watermelon feast. The carving came off at Brown's Warehouse August 18 and attracted a large crowd many who were not in- ited. However, there were more mel ons than could be eaten, 70, in addition to a line lot of musk-melons and grapes. A number of Odd Fellows brought their wives and they seemed to enjoy the occasion no less than their hus bands. Rev. J. W. Frank called the Odd Fellows and their guests to order, after which he called upon those who were to enter the eating contest to come forward. Only two "showed up," "Dick" Clingman and Charlie Russell. Messrs. Phillip Hanes and O. B. Eaton were not to be found. Before the melons were cut Rev. Mr. Frank introduced Rev. J. A. B. Fry, who made a short address of welcome. He said that Mr. Jones gave the feast for the bachelors and ladies, the latter especially. Mr. Fry believed in honest rivalry and he suggested that the audience watch the contestants eat and grow. Messrs. Frank Brown, J. J. Norman and R. L. Hendricks were appointed judges. A large juicy melon was di vided equally between Messrs. Cling man and Russell, time was called and by the use of spoons the "red meat" was transferred from melon to mouth. The eaters were not limited as to time. The men were at work on the second melon when Mr. A. J. Hunt fearing that the undertaking firm of Messrs. A. Vogler & Son misrht, unnecessarilv. be given a job, suggested to the judges that they make the contest a draw. The decision was that Clingman eat the most melon, but Russell swallowed the most seed, therefore the prize, a 40-pound melon, was awarded to the two contestants. Four negro boys were then called in for a contest. Chairs were placed on the long table, the "coons" sat down and the fun was soon on. Men and women cheered them heartily. In ten minutes the winner had eaten one mel on and and a quarter. He was a pro fessional and his partners soon dis covered that they were not in it. His teeth were like a carving knife and his throat was in fine shape to take care of everything that went in his mouth. He was given a fine melon and he went away grinning and happy. The other three were satisfied to get all they could eat at one time. Rev. Dr. Creasy came in during the contests and at the close made a few remarks to encourage the crowd espe cially the well-known "bachelors, Rev. J. W. Frank and J. A. Jones. Dr. Wheeler Not In the Race. A representative of The Sentinf.t. asked Dr. Wheeler if he was an aspi rant for the nomination for Congress at the convention to be held in Wftkes- boro on the 24th inst. He replied: "No sir; l am not." "Who do you think the delegates from Forsyth will vote for?" he was asked. "I have not heard them express a preference, but I be lieve they will vote for "Col." M. I. btewart; he is Mr. Lmney's equal and in many respects his superior." Opened To-day. ; Chairman Ho Hon went to Raleigh Monday to open Republican headquar ters, tie was accompanied by W.

The name of this youthful patriot la Craig Harris, and his ago is 15 years and 4 months. He is a son of United States Senator William A. Harris, Lii- CHAIQ BAItniS. wood's most distinguished citizen Young Harris was greatly interested in the war from the first, and when the president called for volunteers he promply enlisted. Tho elder Harris was astonished and much disturbed when be learned of his son's act and was strongly inclined to interfere, bnt the boy pleadod so hard and so well that the father yielded. "I saw that Craig's heart was set upon being a soldier and going to the war, " remarked the senator to one of his friends, "and I concluded to let him have his way." .As showing the sort of stuff this youth is made of it may be said that a few weeks after his enlistment in the First District of Columbia regiment as a pri vate he was promoted to be corporal. and since then has been made a sergeant in Company L Ship'.

He had evidently forgotten the cele brated goat, William Terror, who eioit ed so much interest when '' the monitor was in New York last winter. Billy is very young. They call him an appren tice goat. It was his iirst time under fire, and he behaved very badly. When the action opened, he was on the upper deck, and at the first broadside became panic stricken. He tore about the deck. A sailor had to carry him below, and in the depth of the ship, alone and nncom- forted, he trembled and bleated till the last gun was silent. The Detroit's goat was braver. He had a station on the gun deck, and while the firing was going on and the shells were whirring over him he i mained absolutely quiet. Bnt whenever there came a lull he capered madly about. There is a difference of opinion as to why he was so com posed daring all the confusion. His friends among the crew say-he was interested and was watching the battle with a critical eye. and that his subsequent capers were bnt an expression of satisfaction at its i snlta His detractors contend that he was paralyzed with fear, and that when the noise ceased the spell was broken, and he gave vent to his feelings of terror by his wild a&tioa Chicago Inter Ocean. ,-a k.
