(ort V.ona ia tn call nienuuu Mark here is to the date to which your subscription is paid. Remittances are aesireu irum ears. TO SENTINEL SUBSCRIBERS. Mr. L. L. Thomas, is now on the ar nath for the sentinel, prepared exchange receipts for cash for past due and new subscriptions and we besneak for him a rushing business. The subscription price of the senti kel is very low and the paper trust r,,oiin,f n nav more for naper, the fact, i we must get our subscription list closer to a cash basis. The farmer cannot afford to sell bis products on long credit. The paper is our product and we cannot afford to sell it on long time. So we urge prompt .settlement of amounts now due. The Ohio Democrats are all right. They declare for Bryan on the Chicago platform in 1900. The "Wilcox is the name of the in surgent boat that has orders to cap tnre or destroy the Lifcney. Bad government always has fol lowed and always will follow Eepub lican success in North Carolina. It is thought the peace commission will begin its work about the 15 th of September. When it will finish is not quite so definite. Do you want to get rid of negro insolence and corrupt government? Then vote the Democratic ticket from A to Izzard. That's a remedy that never fails. If you would prevent bad becom ing worse wrest the reins of govern ment from those who are disgracing the State bv corruption and mal administration. Redeem the State from the present disgrace and save it from deeper in famy is the appeal that comes with great earnestness to every true eon of the old mother. As long as the Republican party is in power trusts will flourish. The trusts are provided with armor plate by the Republicans in return for campaign boodle. Wheat down. Silver up. Not far apart. What has become of the fellows thatwere nearly tickled to deathwhen the epecWatOESSueceeded In separating the prices for a -brief period ? The white man that says he is in favor of white supremacy and good government and then votes to con tinue the present incompetent gang in this State in office, contradicts his words by his act. They say that the negro paper in Wilmington will be suspended. Its editor is fortunate that he was not suspended the day after he wrote that fiendish article about the white women of North Garollna. The crack of the whip of ring master Holton is unheeded by the mass of the Congressional insurg ents. They seem determined to ignore protocols and to wage with relentless vigor the war against bossism. The white voters are largely in tha ascendancy in North Carolina and have In their hands the power to correct the evils that now curse the State. If they fail to use this power at the coming election it will be a terrible disgrace. Hobson is like a good rule. He works both ways. He Is both a sinker and a raiser. . He succeeded admirably In sending the Merrimac down and expects to be equally suc cessful In bringing one or more of Cervera's vessels up. To save the State from degrada tion and the people from insult and humiliation Is the privilege and the duty that now confront every true Bon of North Carolina. Let the op portunity for such a necessary work be earnestly grasped. Capt. E. B. Glenn will soon start on a canvass in the Eastern part of the State in the Interest of white supremacy and good government. This will be good news to the people of the East, among whom Capt. Glenn Is a great favorite. John R. McLean denies very posi tively the report that he would not interest himself in the Ohio Demo cratic Convention Decause ne was to succeed Secretary Alger iruMcKin ley's Cabinet. We -- were inclined to think better, of McLean than the re port Indicated. We hope that the committee of the Tobacco Fair and the management of the County Fair maybe able to provide a way by which the two Fairs may be held at the same time, in Winston. "All are agreed as to the advisability of the suggestion. The question of room is the only serious drawback and we hope this will be overcome. The benefits will be great and will be mutual. Town people "will take more interest in the County Fair and country people "will take more Interest in the Tobacco Fair, and the aggregated exhibits will serve to Impress : visitors with the magnificent and varied products of nnr section. Do not let the idea fall ihrensh if it be possible to prevent PULL, TOGETHER. Everylody admits that we had a splendid Fair here last year. Everybody expects us to do as well or better this vear. The secret of the success that at tended last year's tffort was the earnest co operation given by all our people to the faithful manage ment. If we are to have like results this year and meet public expectation and do credit to ourselves there must be a like cause this year a harmoni ous pulling together by all classes. It is called a To! aeco Fair and is devoted largely to tobacco, but its benefits are shared by all avenues of trade and by our citizens generally and, therefore, all should take a lively interest in its success and put their shoulders to the wheel and help to make this year's Fair a r-agnifi-cent success, which can be done with out "very great tax upon any one. The officers will do their part, but , they cannot do it all and should not if they can. It is often the ease that a few men have to bear all the burd ens of an enterprise, but this is an occasion when such should not be expected and where it is altogether impracticable. Let the management direct as wisely as they may and work as hard as they can, the sue cess of the Fair, alter all, depsnds upon the citizens of our community and the interest they manifest in it. The war has absorbed public at tention for the past few months and it may be that many of our people do not realize that the time for the Fair is only a little over two months oft and that it is time to begin to hustle. Oar manufacturers and merchants should secure space at Brown's ware house for their exhibits at once and begin to plan for their displays. The industrial exhibit last year was splendid and attracted great atten tion. It should be bigger and more elaborate and more attractive this year. We have said this much as a re minder and we hope it will not be long before a general awakening of interest In this year's Tobacco Fair will be matiifest. Let us get a move on us. We can eclipse the magnificent record of last year if we will. But to do so there must be earnest and enthusiastic cooperation. RETURNING-. They are coming, coming, coming to help redeem the State from ras cality and degradation. The Charlotte Observer of yester day notes that M. W. White, Esq , of Iredell county, late chairman of the Populist executive committee of the seventh congressional district, has resigned as such and returned to the Democratic party. North Carolina must be saved from the present corrupt and humiliating misgoyernment and from the still worse things that the Republican traitors would impose upon her. ' The negroes and the pie-eaters are in the minority and cannot perpei uate this rule of Infamy unless they are aided by white men who have gone from the Democratic to the Populist party and in this time of extreme peril the honest, seif respect ing and State-loving and race-loving members ol that party, cannot afford to bear the stigma of respon sibility for an extension of the pres ent demoralizing and chaotic and disgraceful condition of affairs. Anglo-Saxon instinct revolts and Anglo-Saxon blood boils at the con templation of what has been done by the rascals and at what they will do if given further power. The results depending upon this election are above and beyond mere party success, inyolving as they do the weal or woe of the State, the welfare or degradation ot her citizens, and the signs of the times indicate a political revolution which will assume the proportions of a tidal wave and sweep the reins of govern ment from the hands of the traducers of the State and her people. So mote it be. It remained for Rep.-Pop fusion to produce a Judge that indulged in low, dirty and demagogical political harangue upon the bench. Such is the reported caper cut by Spencer Adams in a recent so-called charge to the grand jury at Columbus. Isn't it time to make a change? The Republican managers hope by an infamous election law and by making the Populists objects of barter, to fasten the present corrupt and incompetent and disgraceful condition of affairs upon North Carolina. The people should arise in their might and rebuke these de spoilers of the State. The indications are that there are very many Populists who love their State and the welfare of her people too dearly to be traded off as so many cattle and made Instruments for perpetuating the present in famous condition of affairs in order that Tom Skinner and Hal Ayer and other Republican-fawning, pie-eating demagogues may hold down their jobs. Trusts continue to form. This is the natural result of a trust-protect incr Dartv In power. The latest movement in the trust line is a plan to corner the "bread supply ot the world. This will get close to 'every bread winner and make him feel the oppression and heartlessness of com bined avarice and ; wealth. vIf the trusts - are " to go the Republican party must go first. . The trusts are safe so long as Mark Hanna ism position to scotch for them. THE SUPREME ISSUE. In his last speech, delivered the day before his sudden death, the lamented Judge E. T. Boykin very clearly set forth the overshadowing issue in the present campaign in North Carolina. He said the pend ing contest is for the supremacy of virtue and intelligence. The Judge was right and it is for these things and the blessings that will flow from them that the white men of North Carolina are solidifying their ranks tor one ot tne most important con tests ever waged. The Judge states truly, also, that it is not the Democracy that has drawn the color line, and in support of this declaration he said : "In 1896 so unified was the negro vote that the entire number of negro electors might have voted by proxy in the hands of one of their race. L nis couig not De attributed to any injustice perpetrated against them by the whites. The whites pay almost seven-eighths of the taxes They educated the negro as they educated their own children: they built and supported asylums for their insane and their deaf, dumb and blind; they secured them justice in the courts; they selected them as jurors; they assured them personal liberty. I hey have been deceived by the enemies of law and order, the white Republican office hunters, and theit passions and prejudices have been excited against their best friends. And still, not one ot them has been permitted, in all these years, to be come a candidate on a estate Repub lican ticket for a State office, because the white Republicans of the West coma not be placated, lhey are re warded by local offices in Jbastern counties and cities and towns, and the interests that most intimately concern the intelligence and morality and property ot the taxpayers are committed to their reckless and un scrupulous hands." Referring to the Populists, Judge Boykin said: "There can be no reason why the Populists should not unite with the Democrats in a contest involving the honor, the property, the supremacy of the white man. They cannot con sistently co-operate with the Repub licans. Their policy in regard to money, to monopolies, to the tariff, to the judiciary, is totally different. They have been and are now honored citizens; they are property holders; they are white men. "The Populist party was not organized to elect negroes to office in North Carolina. And yet a fusion of the Populist and Republican parties will inevitably result in this since the negro will not hesitate to demand his 'rights. And Populists will not be the last to suffer from the results of this unholy rule." COUNTY GOVERNMENT. According to a recent decision of the Supreme Court, it is constitu tional for the Legislature to provide different systems of county govern ment for different counties. That is, in some counties the magistrates and commissioners may be appoint ed and in other counties these officers mav be elected, as the best inter ests of the people may require. Referring to this subject, the Chatha m Record recalls the following bit of history : "In consequence of the ruinous rule of the negroes in those counties controlled by them, the white men of North Carolina in loib voted to adopt an amendment to our State constitution which took away from the people of every county the right to elect their county commissioners and magistrates. The white men all over the State voted to give up the right to elect their county com missioners, in order tahelp and save from negro rule their brethren in some of the eastern counties. And In every subsequent campaign the Democrats were charged with thus having destroyed 'local self govern ment.' rnd, as the remembrance of the ruinous rule ot the negroes began gradually to fade away, the people became restless and dissatisfied until finally the old Republican sys' tem was re established by the Legis' Iature of 1895." Under the decision referred to, it appears that the county government problem may be solved to the satis faction of the good people in each and every county. For instance, in such counties as have a majority of negro voters the commissioners and magistrates may be appointed, while in those counties where the whites predominate these officers - may be elected, thus insuring good govern ment in all sections of the State. In order to secure this, however, it will be necessary to elect a Demo cratic Legislature. A Republican Legislature will take no step to re" lieve the Eastern counties of incom petent and humiliating control. They, called it McKinley prosperity when the speculators shoved wheat close to the two-dollar mark, after the wheat had passed out of the hands of the farmers. Now that a new crop of wheat is in the hands of the producers it has tumbled to about one-third former prices, and the blowers have become silent. McKinley is still running things and if he was tesponsible for the boom he is also responsible for the decline and should not discriminate against the farmer and in favor of the specu lator. : v. ' The Wilmington Messenger in dulges in these pertinent remarks: "The whites must govern in North Carolina, that is the long and short of it. Soon or late it will come in some way. It is impossible that it should be otherwise. On all this globe, except In this misgoverned, accursed state of North Carolina, there is no country or dominion or state of white men of the Aryan stock being ridden over rough shod, by the descendants of the black men of African wilds. . We are alone in this ignominy among all the nations. The man who votes for the radical candidates in 1898 is voting to .keep the negroes in power and make them masters in North Carolina. The white man who does that simply degrades himself. Only that and nothing less." " A REIN OP RUIN. The Negro Dynasty In the County of Craven. F. TB. Axendall, in Raleigh News and Observer. There are sixty-five negroes hold ing responsible positions in Craven county, to say. nothing of special deputies, road overseers, etc. JNow, if this is a Democratic lie, It is a whopper. Ifit's a lie at all it is a great big black klnkv-headed He that ought to have the life stamped out of it. But let's seeJf it is not the truth, and nothing but the truth. I have just spent two days In and around the city of Newbern, and I am going to draw a picture for the white men and white women of North Garolina to look upon. I am not going to color the picture, but I am going to paint it as it is. The duty is not a pleasing one. I wish the picture looked a little less hideous to me, I wish it had a bright side or even a gildpd edge, but it has neither. A prominent citizen of Newbern said to me: "Won't you please t( 11 the people of North Carolina the con dition of public affairs In Craven county." "What shall 1 tell them," 1 asked this gentleman, and now 1 am going to let him draw the outlines of the horrible picture. "Tell them," said he, "that we have twenty-seven ignorant incompetent and m most instances unprincipled negro magis trates in Craven county. Tell them," he continued, "that we have not a single white deputy sheriff in Cra ven county, and that we have a sheriff now in office, a candi date for re-election who boldly and publiclv asserts that no white man need apply. "iell them that the next represen tation in he Legislature from Grav en countv will be a negro man, who has been twice tried, convicted and sentenced to terms in the peniten tiary before Itepubliean judges. Iell them that tbe white women of Craven county cannot teach the white children in the public schools until a negro school committeeman has had his say in the matter. Tell them that a white girl and God has given them to us as sweet, as pure and as beautiful as ever stood in the twinkle of a star can not even for sweet sentiment sake obtain a license to marry and have it signed or delivered by one of her race. iell them that white men in Craven county have to work the public roads under negro road over seers. Tell them that white men and white women in Craven county are summoned before negro magistrates by negro constables and deputies and frequently prosecuted by negro lawvers. "Tell them that the city attorney, for the city of .Newbern, is a negro. "Iell them that hve ot the guard ians of the homes and liberties of tbe people of Newbern are incompetent, ignorant and in most cases insolent and corrupt negroes. 'And tell them, for humanity s sake and for the sake of peace, that the white people of Lastern .North Carolina cannot, and will not always tolerate those conditions that en durance will cease to be a virtue, and a reign ot terror take the place ot a reign of ruin. 'Tell the white men of N jrth Caro lina to come to our relief with their ballot, and head off this horrible tendency to completely negroize one of the best sections ot the grand old State. 'But some of these fusion leaders will declare that these are Demo cratic lies," I suggested. "Can we back them up with official state ments and affidavits taken from the records and certified to by those who keep those records. 'Yes, sir, go into any department of the county or city government, and let the records tell their own tales." SALIENT FALL FEATURES. Philadelphia Record.

These Democrats are waking up this year and are taking a lively interest in politics. The evils that have come upon our State under Republican rule have aroused them and the probabilities are that the largest Democratic vote ever polled in the State will be cast this year. The Democrats are ,not only taking an interest in the election, but they are interested in the primaries and have attended them in larger numbers than ever betore. Fitzhtjgh Lee i a candidate for the United States Senate from Virginia. We think he has made a mistake in becoming such. We ad mire many of his traits. He deserves great credit for his conduct as Consul at Havana just before the war. He deserves credit, also, for tendering his services to bis country when the war broke out. He is entitled to anything he may desire in the new government of Cuba, and there Is great' unanimity upon thia point throughout the country, but we do not think he ought . to be sent to the Senate as the representatiye of Virginia Democracy. We take it that a Senator should.be in harmony with the declarations of the predom inant party in the State from which he hails. " Gen. Lee is out of. joint with Virginia Democracy upon the currency question. LEI EVERT -WHITE MAN READ. Real Danger of Influx of Negroes From Other State. Almost immediately after the pas sage ot the Keconstruction Acts, under which the Southern States were re-admitted into the Union, and by which civil and political rights were conferred upon the negro, there was a great influx of negroes into Washington City, and the capital of the Union was fast becoming the negro's political heaven Why? It was about this time tbat an act was passed by Congress which gave to the citizens ot the District of Golumbla the power to elect all the local officers of the City of Washing ton. The people there had local self government, and the negro was as good as the white man. They flocked to thatcityjin great numbers. and had the influx gone on and the right of the people to elect the local officers been continued the city would long ago have been under the control of the negroes. As it was the city government soon became so corrupt and extravagant that Con gress was forced to repeal the act giving the people the right of local self-government. T h e principal officers of the city are now nomi nated and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate are ap pointed by the President, and these appoint the minor officers. Since the present system of government went into operation the negro has had but little showing in the way of orhceholding, and tbe city is no longer his political heaven. What place is now to him what Washington once was? What one State in all this Union now holds out to him the inducement to enter her citizenship and seek her political honors Y hat estate, and what State alone, is represented in the Congress of the United States by a negro? What State, and what State alone, has registration laws which make it easy for him to register. whether he is a legal voter or notl? What State, and what State alon, requires nothing ot him to entitle him to vote except his bare oath that he is so entitled r The answer to thee inquiries ie, North Carolina The negro is not a voter in the District of Columbia, as no elections are held there. South Carolina and other Southern States, where the negroes are in large numbers, have passed special laws which make negro domination in those States practically impossible. But North Carolina, underRepublican rule, not only does not seek to provide against negro domination, but actually in vites it. Laws passed by Democratic Legislatures for the protection of the white people in certain localities have been repealed by the Republi can party, and the policy of turning over these communities to the negroes has been proclaimed to the world as the policy of the Kepubhcan party of North Carolina. Hence we see in New Hanover county forty negro magistrates and numerous other negro officers. In Craven county we find twenty-six negro magistrates and a host of other negro officials. All through the east we find this policy adopted, and as a result many of the local othces held by negroes. Gradually this policy is pushing its way upon the State, and even Chatham's negroes have been put on committees for white schools. Much has been doae in furtherance of this policy since the Republicans came Into power in January, 1897. That policy is now on trial, ana a fierce political contest i going on over the otate. The Democratic party is attacking it with all the power and force at its command. The Republican party is defending it with all the abandon and stubborn ness that a hyena defends Its young, This Republican policy is to be passed upon in November by the people of North Carolina. The negroes from other States watch the conflict. If the people of North Caro lina shall deliberately endorse this policy, can any one doubt the result? Is it not manifest that negroes from other States, where official life is closed to them, will hie themselves away to North Carolina, as they did in former days to Washington, where official life is open to them and where the Republican party offers them Its rewards? Let it be proclaimed to the world, after this fierce conflict, that the white people of North Caro lina have endorsed this Republican policy , and that this party is now firmly intrenched in power and does any one'doubt, can any one doubt, that there will be an influx of negroes into North Carolina from Virginia, South Carolina and other Southern States that will soon give the negroes the majority in many counties where they are now In tbe minority I In this way county alter county in which the whites now feel secure may soon pass under negro control. Can any one doubt that this is a real danger it the Republican party is to remain in control of the State? No more can any one doubt that it is an imminent danger. Who shall say that Colonel James H. Young, the only negro colonel in the United States, when he returns as a conquer ing hero to his patron and friend, Governor Russell, may not summons his race to join him in making North Carolina a San Domingo. Whatever one may think about these seWous and weighty questions, it is certain that if the Republican party is overthrown and its policy be repudiated by the white people and the Democratic party be restored to power, none of these dangers can befall the people ol IN rth Carolina. The Democratic arty is a white man's party, and It will establish and maintain a white man's govern ment over every foot of soil where it governs at all. POINTED PARAGRAPHS.

The summer has had many warm day?, but a warm day in eastern North Carolina is something different from a warm day in our section. Hence as we found ourselves on the tug boat of the C. F. & Y. V. Ry., gilding across the river toward the city of Wilming ton, the change was a pleasant one, compared with the heat and dust of the train. But still more delightful was the ride down the Cape Fear river on Captain Harper's elegant steamer "Wilmington" to Carolina Beach. An hour or more is occupied In this delightful trip, and when the 12 or 15 miles have been traveled we find the little train waiting to take us over the three miles of sand to t he shore of tbe old ocean. This is Ca ro- lina Beach, one of the finest and most perfect stretches of sea beach on the A tlantlc coast. A little village about a mile in length stretches along the slightly curviDg shore, and in the center of this village not 50 feet from the rolling surf stands the hotel. This year the hotel was under the care of Winston-Salem people entirely. Capt. Jenkins is in charge, and all about you are seen familiar faces. If you go to the - bath house for a suit to take a plunge in old ocean, Mr. Ed. Stockton, sun burned till he is as brown as a chest nut, will serve you. When you go into the dining room for your clam chowder, fried fish and deviled crab, those who are in and out the room attending to your wants are people from the Twin-City. Your room is nicely cared for by a alemite, and we found the stalwart colored man who presided in the kitchen claimed our towns as his home. Hence it was really . Twin City colony into which we came on that hot Saturday after noon, and we had to ask ourselves from time to time whether it was a dream or a reality; for we knew t hat Winston-aalem was abroad In that nlace but we also knew that Winston Salem was not located on old ocean. We thoroughly eninyed the hour be fore sunset, seated en tbe long veranda listening to the ceasless roar of the waves, watchinn a Dassiuir sail in the distance, and having tbe brow fanned by the cool salt bre zc I he secrpt ot the restlessness of the seashore to a busy man or a weary woman seems to be in the fact that one can le in back in a comfortable rocker and feel that, the ocean la doing all the work that need be done, we can afford to sit quietly by without being called upon to help. For if ever there was an illustrat ion of perpetual motloD it h to be found at the sea shore. There is noise eoougb; for the roar of the waves never cease, and although it is a pleasant, restful noise, still it is al most sumcient to drown conversation There is result enough: for now t he waves rise high, now they break in spray as they chase each other along, now they spread themselves over the smooth beach in foam lined, smoot h and gentle stretches of water. In addition to this the salt smell has a restful charm about it which invites sleep, forces an appetite, and whispers ease and rest in general. Among the other attractions whic.h we found at the beach this year was ;t government observation towtr. When supper had been enjoyed to tha extent of the law we strolled down the beach half a mile or more till we reached the station. A small house had been built to shelter the detach ment of marines detailed to do duty at this point. Around the house were the usual signs of warning "keen away" but as a very polite company of sailor boys were seated In front of the house we approached and found them quite willing to enter into conversa tion and to give information to the up-country visitor. The observation tower consists of a framework about 40 feet high, and on this is fixed a large pole some '() feet high. This makes the entire struc ture nearly 100 feet. A cross bar enables tbe crew to raise and lower lanterns, flags or other signal appa ratus. One of the crew Is on duty all tbe time, day and night. The object of this station was to carefully watch and report to the gov ernment all vessels passing up or down the coast, and we may add that when Cervera's fleet was still in the dark, they kept a special lookout for Spanish war vessels. The sailor boys were provided with powerful glasses, and day aod night this ceaseless- watch was continued. One of the chief objects of the station was to enable our naval vessels to communicate with Washington without going into a seaport. A vessel wishiug orders from Washing ton could stand five miles or more out at sea, signal its wishes to tbe Caro lina Beach station; the marines had a telegraph instrument in their house, and with this the message was Hashed to Washington, the reply received and signalled back to tbe war vessel in a few moments. Around the station were huge iron frames, six or eight feet high, some in the shape of a cylinder, some cones. They were covered with a wire gauze, and when there was not wina enougn to stretch the signal flags these huge cylinders and cones were raised to the cross bar, high upon the flag pole, and by rasing and lowering them the messages given. We might considerably enlarge this sketch, but what is given above will suffice to Indicate how interesting was the hour spent talking with the sailor boys We walked back with Mr. Ed Stockton, who had kindly in troduced us to the boys, and were soon again on the hotel veranda. A delightful quiet Sabbath day followed; how we drank in the view, the air, the entire list of interesting things about us, which nature had so lavishly provided. But Monday found us again in the midst of the sand and sunshine of Eastern Carolina, . with the cool ocean air exchanged for the dust and cinders of the railway train; and the interest ing dreams of the seashore war sta tion were replaced by the shirk of the steam whistle, as we sped along to ward our North Carolina destination.
