Hanover; Or The Persecution of the Lowly - On the Cape Fear River, about thirty miles from the East coast of North Carolina rests the beautiful city of Wilmington. It is often said that there is nothing so indispensible as the newspaper. It is the moulder of public opinion; the medium of free speech; the promoter and stimulator of business; the prophet, the preacher, swaying the multitudes and carrying them like the whirlwind into the right or wrong path. To millions its the Bible, the Apostles Creed. Their opinion of God, of religion, of immortality is shaped by what the newspaper has to say upon such subjects.
