freight agent of the Southern railway,
and R. I,, l'otts, local agent, and asked
Munson whether last year the South?

special freight rates between Raleigh
and Round Knob. Munson declined to
answer, saying that ho did so upon the
ground that a witness was not com?
pelled to give evidence which might be
used in a criminal indictment. Chair?
man Caldwell ruled .that Munson must
answer or be attached for contempt
and committed until the matter was
settled. Dr. Abbott, of the Commis?

was Caldwell who asked questions.
There was a set smile on his face all
the while. F. H. IJushbee was present

shop was on Rank street, loft last
Sunday night for the Klondike gold
Molds. He was accompanied by a
young man named Brnlthwalte. from
Princess Anne county. These two gen?
tlemen went direct to New York, where
they awaited the coming of Mr. Wil?

this city, who left here on Wednesday
evening last to Join Messrs. Miller nnd

Their voyage will extend along the

will go round Cape Horn and go up the

will get their supplies and continue
their Jnurney to their destination.
When these gentlemen left here, be?

were wonderful specimens cf tailor's

Miller of extra heavy cloth and were
lined from top to bottom with sheep
skin, the wool having 'been left on the
hide. The coats weighed thirty pounds
each, and some Idea, can be formed
from this of value of the gavmunts.
Before making the coats Mr.' Miller

from 11 o'clock this morning until 5-.30
o'clock this evening, bearing oral argu?

ami Morgan Treat, cxr-Congrcssman
Libby. Thorp nnd Brown, contestants
against Epes nnd Swnnson, A. 1?. Lynch
nnd S. I'. Kearney. John 3. Wise, coun?
sel for contestant, spoke two hours,
attacking the Virginia election law and
using his most effective ridicule against
Democratic Judges, charging gross
frauds and following in d-r.ail the lines
laid down in ills brief.
kludge Brooke follow: 1 for Young
in calm and dispassionate argument,
concise nnd logical, frequently referring
to his brief for facts contained. He
set out the fact that Wise's nomina?
tion was bitterly opos-tl. that there
wore two conventions and that Wise
was not supported by many prominent
Republicans! >Io cited this to show
why Wise lost votes among Republi?

vote for Wise.

This sally seemed to tickle the com?

a dignified silence and proceeded with
Colonel Brady, at its close, to break
the force of Judge Brooke's showing of
defection from Wise, stated that Bow

his defection did not operate to defeat
Wise; thatt he was counted out by gross

protestation of love for Virginia, and
announced that he would fight with his
?last breath to reclaim her from the
degradation ito -which she had been
sunk by men like the contestee, hon

House Election Committee No. 3 Sat?
urday, when General Calmcrs. of Mis?
sissippi, counsel for Curmack in the
election caso of Patterson vs. Carmack,
Memphis (Tenn.) district, was closing
his address. He made a personal
attack upon Patterson, tracing his en?
try Into politics In Tennessee after the
Carpet Baggers had. like the Arab,
folded tholr tents nnd silently stolen
away. "It was then," ho asserted,
"that Colonel Patterson, like Don
Quixote, emerged from his obscurity
and commenced his terrific onslaughts
upon the Carpet Haggers. I well re?
member a conference reunion held in
Memphis about this time. Colonel
Patterson was chairman of the meet?
ing. Two Confederate generals walked
up to that platform arm In arm. One
was a Democrat and one a Republican;
They were .the highest ranking Con?
federates In that part of the country.
The Democrat, had left a leg on the
battle field attesting bis bravery. The
Republican had led his forces nearest
to PlUsburg Landing, ns monuments
since erected bear evidence. The
Democrat was invited to a seat next to
the chairman. Soon a crowd of his old
soldiers surrounded the Republican
and asked him why he, too, was not
upon the platform. He answered that
he did not go where he was not in?
vited. A former soldier of his com?
mand then wont to Colonel Patterson
and Informed him of the Confederate
general's presence. His answer was
that there was no room for Republi?
cans there. That Confederate general
now stands 'before you," exclaimed
General Chalmers, striking his breast
and looking defiantly at Colonel Pat?
terson, who was less man ten feet
"He Is the man who was too good n
Democrat to even associate with a Re?
publican Confederate general." con?
tinued General Chalmers, with eyes
flashing fire, "anel wlio now comes here
as a Republican or a gold bug and
claims that he was cheated out of
negro votes cast for him."
When General Chalmers censed there
was a painful silence in the room.
Colonel Patterson, with face flushed,
replied that, he had never heard of the
incident before, and General Chalmers
retorted that he believed the word of
his soldier who brought him Colonel
