The Journal desires to again
direct the attention of Democrats
to the necessity of registering
their choice in the primary to be
held on TUESDAY, AUG. 22,
for the nomination of United
iftates Senator, Governor, Lieu?
tenant-Governor, Attorney-Gen?
eral, Superintendent of Public
Instruction, State Senator and
Member of the House of Dele?
gates. We give in another col?
umn the ticket to be chosen from.
The test of an individual's citi?
zenship, so far as the community
at large goes, is the manner in
which he exercises the rights,
privileges and prerogatives of
that citizenship, and we know of
no better evidence of a people's
civic rightousness than the care
and caution exhibited by them in
the selection* of their public ser?
It is the duty of the individual
to exercise wisely and unselfishly
the high privilege of franchise
and to select as a public servant
the candidate whom he would
select to represent him in any
private capacity, one possessing
honor, courage, ability and in?
Without disparaging the candi?
dacy of any of the Democrats
?whose names will appear on the
ticket, we know that men of
character and high ability are
offering themselves for the Demo?
cratic nomination for each office
to he filled, and we cannot too
strongly urge upon those who
voted the Democratic ticket at
the last election in which they
participated and who are now
eligible voters, to come out and
register their choice in the com?
ing primary.
With this issue Messrs. Floyd
and "Dolly" Locke, who have had
charge of the mechanical depart?
ment of the Journal office, will
^ftev-er their connection with the
paper, and go to join their father
in Lenoir, N. C., in the publish?
ing of the Topic.
JVe sincerely regret to lose the
n/ices of these young gentie
_yhose deportment and work
r? been entirely satis
. that Mr.
. d Locke, who has had charge
of our job work, wi[l favorably
compete in his line with any
printer, and Mr. "Dolly" I.<>oke,
for his experience, measures up
exceedingly well.
We wish fol them much suc?
cess and every happiness in their
new field.
To the Editor of the Journal:
While taking the school census
on Gwynns' Island a few weeks
ago, 1, like the people of the
island, wanted to know its popu?
lation; so, while taking the school
census, I took the whole popula?
tion. I found 193 white school
children and 41 colored school
children. The whole population
is as follows:
White. 653
Colored. 123
Total. 756
In the white school children I
found 98 g'rls and 95 boys. So
there is no necessity for any
young man in the future leaving
the island to look for a " better
half." N. E. Miller.
