Our County Court adjourned Saturday
night. Many cases were disposed of, and
the case ol t he State vw. Joe U rimes for the
murder of B. A. Huddleston, was ably ar
gued by Attorney General Taylor, John H.
Moore aud B in Bates, for the Slate, aud Col,
N. N. Cox, John Fain, aud Mr. Carter from
Linden, lor the defendant. The trial con
sumed three days, and resulted in the crim
inal being sentenced to twenty years in the
penitentiary. Tne jury was composed en
tirely of young men, aud neither one of
them had ever served lu the capacity of ju
rj man iu auy court bef ae this trial.
Iu the country remole from the large wa
ter course we have had several heavy frosts,
but Immediately on the river and other
streams you canuot see any damages done.
Our bu rners are now busy gathering their
peanuts, and the yield, in quality as well as
in quantity, is very tlalleriug. We have
heijrd several farmers talking about the
number of peas to each vine, and some have
as many as ninety, aud others from sixty
to eighty, which we are told Is unusually
large; aud nearly all are fully matured now.
So you can readily see that tioober County
will be all right if we can get a fair price for
our principal product.
We nave a number of first class mules iu
our county, aud the farmers are getting
them fat ami ready for market. We also see
a number of large fat heaves, being driven
through the country preparatory to taking
them to some market for sale.
Now a word or two in regard to the politi
cal situation. We are all right for the
straight Democratic ticket. We had several
speec.ies at Ceulrevide ou the first Monday.
Our friend J. H. Moore is winniu 4 golden
opinions from his county friends, aud the

sticulil tie tiesiroveu. tneu you can wen lin-
nuine what trouble aud distress would attend
lue eulorcment 01 mat couiract. jiutj esti
mate is that the eutire indebtedness of the
country, governmental and individual, is
11 ww millons. Most or this debt was crea
ted Is-fore contraction commenced, and bas
ed upou the higher values of all commoditis
consequent upon tne auuuuaut currency.
Did ever a Koverumeut since tne wuriu be
gan, persue a course to so utterly crush out
and destroy her people pecuniarily? Add
to t.ils the outrageous extra vaganceoi ail our
dm is ot government and the dishonesty 01
' ' , ... ,
'e nation, the legal roberry committeil
upon our ptople by the working of the train"
wliirebv- luucu more money goes mio me
pockets of the manufacture of the articles
than into the treasury of the government.
md tlie wonder is now our people exist at
all. The estimate is that governments of all
kinds in the L. S. cost the people seven
hundred and filly millions 01 uonars annu
ally. Tuis sum enuals if uot exceeds the en-
lire uet proceeds of the labor of all our in
dustrial classes. Allowing the ordinary av
erage wages to the eutire body of miners,
luaL uiaciuicrs auu agriculturists 01 me
country, and it will require them to labor
one-third of their whole time to produce the
amount. It would be like requiring them
all ly work every third day the year round
on the road. My iriends is not inegoverumeni
loo expensive': is 11 necessarily soy do we
not imiv too dearlv for our whistle? These
are nuestious for the people to consider ami
answer, and il remedies are to be provided,
tueii-s is me uuiy to lurnisii mem anu ii.e
ballot box is the place.
I know it is the custom 01 many of those
who do not own taxable properly to Imag
ine that as they pay no taxes this burdeu
falls entirely upon the rich and the proper
ty holder. This Is a mistake. No money, or
va!u-3 which it represents, is created, except
by l ibor; themau or woman that creates
valu bv labor paysatt the taxes. I as a land
lord im a mere sub tax collector to receive
and turn over the taxes paid by the actual
ariuer. The tneu wfiowork, whlleor black,
ictuiilly pay ail the taxes. I speak of this
that no man, however humble or
poor, if he works, may feel that he Is ex
empt from the burdens of government, and
that his duty to himself and lamily de
maul that he should join the column aud
nan h to the music of retrenchment and re
Th'J government by its action, having pro
duced the distressed condition ot the coun
try ,t.ie question is, can the government uudo
its work? I think it ean. How? By revers
ing ts action, redeem portions 01 its oonus
iu currency; thereby stopping interest aud
lurn. shlug a sufficiency ol currency for the
business of tlie country. Will lt do so? I
tear not. I confess I have but little hope
ol pecuniary relief to the people from the ac
tion 01 me general government, uu umiuii-
w h kh party succeeds in the coming election.
Not that 1 think It immaterial whether Til-
den or Hayes shall be elected. I conceive
that there is au immeasurable distance be-
tween them. The election of theone means
the Inauguration of purity, honesty, integ
rity .mil economy iu the administratiou of
the f.overumeiit; aud the other the perpetu
ation of all the corrupt practices which
make the present administration asynonym
for dishonesty aud extravagance. Then is
there no relief? Are the people still lo suf
fer 03? I think not. There are two horns
to the dilemma, iu accepting oneor the oth
er or both the people must find some relief.
Prior to the war the State, through the State
Haul;, luruished an admirable and safe cur
icnc.v for the people, and could do so again,
but for au act of Congress taxing the circa
latlou of such iustitulious, which act many
sjood lawyers regard as unconstitutional,
which at worst a Democratic Congress and
l'res deut could and would repeal. They
will certainly either furnish the people a
sufficiency of greenbacks, or permit the
.states to provide, as ol old, a proper amount
of currency. On tho other, some measure of
relief would be afforded lhe people by au
adjustment of the St tie debt, amounting
to near twenty-eight millions. This debt
thepeople feel they are not now Able to pay,
01 even to provide lor the interest, and ask
Inat the creditors of the Suite shall follow
lhe example of those of the States of Louis
iana, Alabama, S. C, aud perhaps others
who cheerfully came up aud surrendered a
libeiul share of their claims, and accepted
undoubted a-su ranees of the payment of the
interest on the remainder promptly aud the
final payment of the principal. They ask
this with the more confidence because they
feel ijiat their inability to pay is the result
mainly of the action of those who hold the
bonds, and who have for so long controlled
tne action of the LT. S. government by the
destruction of a large portion of the person
al pi openy pledged betore the war lor the
redemption of these bunds, leaving the real
estale, aud that reduced to less than oue
half ics value by the contraction of the cur
rency, at the behest of Ihtse same bond
holders. The assessment of lsoo showed
two hundred millions of real estate and oue
hundred millions of negroes.
I am tlie last man who would advise repu
diat'on, but I would ask the bondholder to
share with us the losses entailed by the war.
There cju surely be no reasou why they and
they uloae should lose nothing by its disas
teis; all other species of properly have been
either entirely lost or greatly depreciated
In value, If they would make no conces
sion, then I would provide lor current ex
penses, and wait until tlie revival of pros
perity shall enable us to meet interest and
finally principal. But a compromise can be
Willi regard to the dog tax, being satisfied
that a majority qf the people of the couuty
aud district, whose representative and agent
I shall be, demand Its repeal, I will, if elects
ed, cheerfully carry out tneir wishes. A
law so thoroughly disapproved by the mass
of the people, should be removed from the
stat lie book.
If elected, I will endeavor to so legislate
thai as near as possible every dollar paid
tntc the treasury as school tax shall g Iuto
the hands of the teacher. I would then per
mit each couuty to determine the rate of
taxation il will levy for school purposes.
I hall reel it my duty to most carefully
scrutinize all expeuditures for all purposes,
and reduce them to the lowest point com
patible with the due enforcement of the
lawsot the Stale, aud the protection of the
rigt ts of the people.

The President stated that before proceed

pleased 10 have au expression of the views
of the members In the propriety ol feedim?
fs. D. mclean Had no exiKsrlence in feed
ingsoighum, but was of the opinion that
I hey would not take lt very readily.
W. J. Andrews Had fed some in his Iww.

C. C. VAUGHAVHad also red It mixed
with honey, and they took lt freely.
W. U. Rainkv Had fed it. and noticed
that at times thev partook or it rreely. and
t mt at other times they would not touch It.
R. H.Caskev Thought that wheu thev
partook or it they were unable lo gather
honey; but wheu able to find honey iu the
fields that thev would not touch iu He had
led honey, and at times they would not
touch it, aud he attributed it to that cause.
D. STAi-LKS They will take it, aud they
will not starve as long as they can get it.
He thought that the reason they took it at
oue time and refused It at others, was owing
to the weather; that when the weather was
cool it became too thick. That if fed to
them warm thev would partake of If freely.
He thought equal parts of honey and sor
ghum made a good reed. Did not think It
advisable to feed much of lt when they were
confined to the hive for a long lime; but in
our latitude, where they are able to have
a fly every rew days, did not think there
would be any bad results from feeding It
W. J. Andbbws Iftexcltiug to a robbing

C. C Vaubhan Thought they might be
1 educed to take it bv feeding on hoiiev for a

R. H. Caskey Had fed a colony on sor
ghum last Spring, but did nut think lt did
them any good.
J. M. Bvers Had a swarm to come out
that was entirely destitute or supplies. He
li-.l them sorghum from a bottle; they were
slow to pike il at flint, but did so. He fed
them nothing else. It stimulated thein,aud
they soon commenced gathering honey.
He was told that the queen was the easiest
killed by food that would not agree wiin
them, in this case the queen was not ki'l-
ed ) rom eating lt, and she had nothing else
to subsist on.
J. Jones ThoiiKht to make a thorough
test of the matter, they should
lie fed on It when it was Impossible for
them to get anything else.
vv. J. an due ws Moved that the next ex
periment be "Feeding Sorghum" adopted:
and the President appointed A. Bo wen.. I. .1.
Jones and C. C. Vaughau as the committee
to make the experiment.
W.J. Anukews -Had the tiucstiou recent
ly put to him as to the quality of honey
gal liered from pea blooms, and would like
to know if any or the members could give
any information concerning it. None
knew anything of it.
.Mr. j. J . Jones tlieu read the following es
Mr. I'resulent and Kellmo-liee-keeitcrs: A t
the June meeting of this society, it coiiler-
ed ou me the duty of addressing you cm the
subject or honey.
We have a vast number or Plants In our
locality that yields honey some more and
some less the poplar and the linden being
the source fmm which we ifet our mcatcsi
yields of honey.
Bees gather, but do not make honey, us
many suppose; hence the great variety ol
loney eacn variety unerringly telling ine
xpert from what plant lt was gathered.
Webster bays that honey Is composed of
nucilage, sugar and acid mucilage the ad
it si ve part sugar the sweet part and acid
he sower p irt of honey. Some honey have
luore and some less acid in it. For ln-
tauce, I think our linden houev has more
acid in lt than any other kind of houev we
an get: and owing to this fact the unedu
cated are sometimes led into error.
f or instance, a sick man sent to me one
time lor some honey, aud I scut him what
thought 10 tie as flue linden honey as 1
very Intelligent V011112 man. and one
whose opinion should lustlv I mi resneeitsi.
was visiting this sick man and tastml some
of this honey, aud said that It was soured
honey; that it was extracted too noon. Now
if he had known that this acid taste was
peculiar to the linden nouey, 1 known that
he never would have said that it. urns unir-
It has been my practice for years to ex-
ract honey just alter the bees have com
menced capping. After this time there Is
but little uncapping to do, aud lt makes less
work lor the bees in repairing the combs.
use a large barrel wilh one head out and
well waxed inside; into which I put my
honey as 1 extract, and until lt Is full; after
which I let it stand a few hours, and then
draw the bouey off into another Imrr.-I. al
ways leaving a few gallons in the loriner
barrel. Tills will save skimming, and will
lve you nice pure honey in your barrels.
This is the most Important point. In ln.o.

cality lor bees, and we know that they will
gather large quantities of honey, but how
lo turn our honey Into cash at a fair price Is
iin,-eiiwii 101 our eousiueratiou.
We may dispose of a few hundred 1101m. lu
f honey at home in the way ol l.m t.-i but
get very little cash.
t rom tne little experience I have in ship
ping honey, I cannot make a very favorable
report. Although we have been welling our
honey at 25 cents per ma.nd. 1 he ev .r,v..w
have la-en so threat that I do not think that
we haye realized more than 10 ceuts per
pou nd for our honey. But I think If our
bee-keepers society could aeree and izet. mt
some kind of a co-oerative arraugment to
sell our honey, we would do much bet
ter than tujs,
Th re is much prejudice bv the unin
formed against extracted honey. Some say
ing that it is not as icood as coi 11 h hotw-v-
nd others say that we tee-keebcrs ex
tract our honey too soon, or before it eels
thick enough, and the consequence Is that
t sours, aud some go so far as to sav that
extracted honey will sour any way. And
wheu we go Into the city to sell honey we
find that there are but few who will buy ex
tracted houey that Is in the fi-raiiulated
state; they say and believe that it is arti
