Hon. S. V. Phillips ami Attorney-General
Miller, sjicnt several hours to-day con-
lemnir about the Itil i.ouo compromise
I hope to telegraph you the result as
soon as the coulcrenee ends.
Governor Fowle protests against the
admission ol' (ierommo's hand. I louuil
that the wnrilcpartmeiit was not wholly
committed to the nlea, though hecreinry
Troetor refused to sav anything more
explicit about it. Maj. W. W. Flemming.
formerly of Charlotte, who is btiilttiiiK
a good practice here by the way, tells me
that he thinks Gcrouinio cannot be set
tled in North Carolina unless the land
is bought from private parties orgrnntcd
by SH'cial act of the Legislature which
is not probable.
Fifty thousand dollars worth of Ashe
villi.' property was yesterday placed in
the hands of Messrs. Jenkins and Rich-
V ards, an enterprising real estate firn:
1, here, and they. -tregoing to push it. They
: expect more in a lew days. Mr, Iidwurii
' Jenkins, senior partner of the firm, is n
' North Carolinian, ami is familiar with
the wonderful resources of the State.
He thinks he can make some sales to
several most desirable parlies.
Governor Fowle stated to ine this
t morning that he thought the terms o:
?j the compromise with regard to the $ 147,
j? 00(1 worth of railroad bonds would 1101.

Mr. Husliee sK-nt several hours in con
sultation yesterday, started work on it
' 1 again this" morning at 11 o'clock, and
will be engaged on it until a late hour
' this evening. Governor Fowle says that
the State docs noljohjcct to paying the
$17,000, but he is unwilling to allow
) the $41,500 interest charged after the
bonds had matured. The bonds were
bought bv the United Stales treasury
and the Indian office. Mr. llnsbec has
to interview these two departments to
i dav, that is the cause of lie delay. Gov
j cnior Fowle says he is willing to pay the
i $147,000 down, and leave the $41,-
.".00 interest to the Supreme court id' the
United Slates to settle. He thinks the
decision of that tribunal would be in
i favor (if the Stale. The Governor hopes
4 after this is settled to have, with other
resources he has at his command, a sink
ing fund of $3,000,(100 to the credit of
the Slate. He says .State taxes were
never lighter than they now are, and the
jiartv never in better trim. He was
' asked at the department yesterday why
Secretary I'roctor hit upon North Caro-
linn as a' place lor the Indians, he re-
i plied: "I suppose Secretary I'roctor
i found out after he took charge of tin
" war department that North Carolina
. did the best fighting during the late war.
$ and wanted to send his Apaches among
JL . a people who had the ci'inge to keep
f them straight. But we don't want llitm,
' and I suggest that if he vetoes my prop
's osition to colonize them in Vermont, he
i shall next choose Massachusetts, and
F put ohn L. Sullivan in charge of them.'
I think if our able Governor has any-
r thing to say in this matter and he ccr-
( taiulv will have Gcronimo ami his
braves will not occupy any of the fertile
vallevs or beautiful mountains of "The
Land of the Sky."
The Star of this evening says :
"If Governor Fowle is not ihcmosl am
iable man in the country, mnnncrsnud ap
pearances count for nothing. He might
rcadilv pass for the original governor ol
North' Carolina who made a certain fa
mous remark to the governor of South
Carolina. He is a rather short, smooth
faced man of rotund proportions, with a
merry twinkle in his eye, a cordial man
ner and a speech full of wit. In calling
on the President he had the advantage
of not being an office seeker and he soon
drew the President into a social laugh."
The President assured Governor Fowle
that the Indians would not be scut to a
State that did not want them.

A St. Louis dispatch of a recent (late

court, entitled Marian Miller vs. Louis
Miller, there is a most strange and ro
mantic history. Twentv-livc years ago
Louis Miller, then of St. Petersburg, Rus

After the marriage they settled down
in their native city. Miller decided to
leave his native land and try his fortune
among a free pen pic. He came here and

sending money to his wile and receiving
.letters from her, but in a levy months
after he lclt home his mother, with whom
he left his voting wile, died, and the wile
left to join her friends, 500 miles in the
interior of Russia. All of this time the
mails were very irregular. The young
wife received no letters from him and he
received none from her, until one day a
letter cume to him with the tidingsof her
Thinking him lost his wife concluded to
visit this country and learn, it possible,
what had become of him. Ilringing with
her their son, who had grown to nian
ihood, she landed in Ilaltimorc and Un

business. Meeting some friends, one day
thev asked him where his father was,
and he told them the story of his lather's
lite. They said the son looked like a man
they knew, and he sent to his mother for
a picture of his father, which was shown

But in the meantime, in July, 1887,
the tnthcr had married again, anil was

The official Report 1'pon H
Recent Trial Trip.
Washington, October 4. The official
report of the trial board on the cruiser
Ilaltimorc, relative to her recent trial
run was received at the navy department
this moraine The board stutes that
the average horse-power developed by
the eiiL'incs was 8.077.80: the reiiuire-
meiit lieing 0,000, thus making a de
ficiency of 22. 12 nowcrs. which would in
cur a ncnaltvof $2,212. Theserew made
an avcraire'of 117 revolutions, which
allowing 10 percent, slip, would give her
ail average speed ol l!).t Knots an nour.
The report states that during the run,
two of the indicators which had been
thoroughly tested before the trial broke.
and it was necessary to substitute two
others which had not been tested, uu
the record of these indicators depended
the record of the development of horse
power. Secretary Tracy, after reading of the
report this morning, decided to waive
the (piestion of acceptance of the vessel
until he could hear from the Cramps, the
contractors, as to whether or not they
were willing to let the last trial stand as
a final one, or prclerred to have another
trial run with indicators tnorougniy
tested. His defence in the matter is
based on the accident to the indicators.
The report shows that the ship made
wonderful speed, notwithstanding the
failure to develop good horse power,
and the Secretary is inclined to look upon
that achievement as eminently satis
factory. The allowance made for the
slip in calculating sliced is a large one.
The Cramps will be allowed another op
portunity to lest tne norse power oi tnc
cruiser at their own expense. Should
they prefer not to have another trial, the
cruiser will oe acccpieu oy ine j;ovei u

Chicago, Octolier 4. To-day the wheat
market was again lacking in snap, and

December selling up to 82 V4 off to Hl,

peared to get into a rut, out of which it
could not be dislodged by either side.
Although prices averaged for the day
fractionally above yesterday's closing
quotations, the undertone was weak ami
surlacc indications were bearish. Re
ported arrivals of over 700 cars of wheat
at Minneapolis and Duluth, and a dis
patch saying that Minneapolis millers
had reduced their prices lc. in the coun

the forenoon. A little spurt just at the

The Fool and HlH Mtouey Soon
A medicine man, who dropped into
Greensboro circus day, played the confi
dence game in a novel way. He stood in
a buirirv at the umctioii ot cnurcli ami
Greene streets. He was handsome and
well dressed. Thecrowdgathered around
and listened to his siren voice. His med
icine was a cure-all, and only a lew mo
ments would be given to buy it nt 25
cents a bottle.
Manv handed tin the change and re
ceived iiot only a bottle of medicine but
25 and sometimes 50 cents in return.
Then 50 cent bottles were offered. There
was a rush. These purchasers got back
medicine with 50 cents and dollar pieces,
and so generous did the medicine man
I whom the people now took to lie u lun
atic with a fortune) become that he
threw a shot bag lull of quarters into
the crowd. Such a scramble. Then he
offered $1 bottles. There was a great
rush. Hundreds of dollars were handed
up. A bottle of medicine, nothing else
was handed to each purchaser and the
lunatic remarked: "Gentlemen, you
have the medicine, I have the money,"
and put whip to his horse and drove oil'.
This fellow made some $300 out of about
as many of them.

Nkw York, Octolier 4. R. 0. Dun &
Co's review of trade for the week savs:
A closer money market, as was antici
pated last week, has checked operations
to some extent, i he shipment ol !M,-
000,000 in gold to btiropc bv a firm en
gaged in placing two large loans lor for
eign governments, and therelorc anxious
to prevent a further advance in flank ol
lvngland rates was all clearer evidence of
the actual demand abroad, because made
at a small loss if reckoned at the current
rate of exchange. The sudden fall in the
rate from $4.88 to $46 was followed
bv an upward movement again; . nil it
seems not improbable that the exigencies
ot the Argentine Republic and tnc placing
of the Russian loan may for sometime to
come a licet the market here. October
disbursements and moderate purchases
of bonds have made the market easier for
the present, but the rate on call after ris
ing from 5V4 to 8 per cent. and even to
30 tier cent, lor some tunc is yet about
7 percent., with no improvement in the
commercial loan niaruct, while the treas
ury paid ,$2,800,000 more than it took
in. The interior demand is everywhere
increasing, with sonic stringency at
Cleveland, an eat-icr feeling at Boston,
and a light money market at Philadel
phia. It is an encouraging fact thai all
reports represent collections at least as
fairly satisfactory ami at most points the
situation in that respect is good.
Reports of business from all parts of
the country show an increased activity
on the whole, though in some branches
trade is not up to the September level
Pittsburg notes higher prices for iron
and steel, glass business active with
works all operating, and t lie coal tradc
dull, waiting water for river movement.
Throughout the west excellent crops arc
the basis of large buying bv the farming
districts and confident 1uk-s as to the
trade for the rest of the year. The iron
business is in danger of running into an
unhealthy "boom," so great is the anx
iety of many to stimulate the demand.
Several large furnaces are about going
into blast, and Southern No. 1 is still
sold here at $ll.75; but higher prices
than $18 aie paid for desired brands,
which arc scarce, and structural plate
and wrought piie are strong. Hut of bar
there is not much buying, and some mills
are inviting orders at $18.05. Kails have
actually sold for $20 in considerable
iunntily at eastern works, but Philadel
phia (piotes $31 and the west corres
pondingly higher prices.
Cotton manufacture has reason to re
joice at the collapse of the Liverpool cor
ner, and the price of raw cotton has de
clined here "sc., with sales of 34,000
The sugar trust seems not unlikely to
follow the copper syndicate and the cot
ton corner, at least so far as prices arc
concerned. Raw sugar is lower, the de
mand tin- consumption lieing slack, and
meanwhile heavy sales of the sugar trust
stock depressed the price to about DOe,
The cotton oil trust is also heavily
sold and declined shardly.
The coal market improves but slightly
in the amount of sales and not at all in
prices, so that attacks upon coal carry
ing stock have lieen encouraged.
Speculation in wheat has weakened
and the price is lc. lower, with sales of
4(1,000,000 bushels here.
Corn is le. and oats Vic. lower, and
pork steady. The general level of prices
is nevertheless a shade higher than Sep
tember aiidliasadvanccd Viix-i ccnt. since
September 1, a result due rather to par
tial failure of some crops than to an in
crease of the monetary supply.

Frances II. Pierpont, of Virginia, who is
in the city, was asked to-day about the
report in the recent dispatches that the
Federal government claimed $40,000
from Virginia, said amount lieing part of
an appropriation said to lie unaccounted
for by the State officials.
"Virginia has nothing to do with thai
money," said the governor. "It never
went into the State treasury, and was
not handled by the State's officers.
Congress made an appropriation of
$2,000,000 to lie used in certain
States in suppressing the rebellion.
Of this $40,000 was sent by or
ordcr of the President to Daniel Lamb
to lie disbiiiscd under the order of
the government of Virginia for equipping
and feeding volunteer soldiers while in the
service, and it was so disbursed. Lamb
was careful with his vouchers and I was
careful with my warrants. Lamb acted
as a disbursing officer of the United
States, and not a dollar of the money
went into the treasury of Virginia. It is
nonsense to talk about making Virginia
liable, The governor of Virginia was
neither a receiving nor a disbursing
officer, and the Slate never got any of the

large and harmonious session held. The
meeting was called to order bv President
Blackwcllat 10 o'clock, and continued
in session till late in the afternoon and
much business of importance to the mem
liers ol the order was considered, much
of which can not be given to the public
There were several hundred farmers ores
enl as delegates, rcpresentim.' thirtv-lour
sub-alliances, and some 2,000 members
in the county. 1 he officers audexeeutivc
committee made llicir reports which
showed the alliance to be in favorable
condition and on a rapid and substantial
increase. There were several resolutions
ottered and adopted looking to the wel
hire of the agricultural classes, and the
bettering of their financial condition
which elicited considerable discussion
The question which most directly con
cerns the fanners at present, and one
which excited no little attention, was
that ot a warehouse in which to sell leaf
tabacco, and for general storage purposes
lor agricultural machinery, products,
stock, etc. 1 he committee previously
appointed composed of D. A. Hlackweli,
N. Pliimadore, . W. Nash, C. P. Weaver
and Jas. J. Greenwood, after considering
tnc matter earcliilly in regard toex)eiisc,
convenience, accommodation, etc., re
ported that it was impracticable and
almost impossible to establish a house
separately at so late a period in the
season, and the only satisfactory ar
rangements they were able to make was
to rent for one year an interest in Ray's
warehouse on the corner of Patton
avenue and Kailev streets, which was
offered on very easy terms anil a mine
lion ol commissions allowed to all mem
bers of the alliance from any county or
section. The report was iiuunimoush
adopted and the brotherhood was urged
to unite in patronizing the alliance ware
house, also to ask the eo-opcratiou ol
other counties, which they will most
likely do. The same committee was re
tained and hnpowered with authority to
employe the proper alliance nun to
assist in the management of the ware
house. While these arrangemcnlsnrcthc
best that can possibly be effected for the
present season il is very important that
all alliance members act us a unit in
this enterprise and by another year the
organization will be in a condition to
promise better things and special efforts
will lie made to give satisfaction to all.
and we are very sure the eoniiuittc will
appoint no one who will not see to it
that every pound of tobacco offered will
bring the producer its value at some sail
or on some market. Others beside those
of our farmers who raise tobacco are
interested in this warehouse, as it will be
used for other than tobacco purposes,
during other seasons, which is more than
one-half of the year, and at all times
there will be some one in charge to sec
after the farmer's interest, who belong to
the order, in their buying and selling.
Only an effort is nesseary to show what
the alliance men of Western North Caro
lina can do if they adhere to the motto
of our order and patronize the Alliance
warehouse. W. F. Tomi.inson,

Is the name ol a new and handsomely
printed thiity-two column weekly pub
lished in the town of Monroe, 1'nion
county, and edited by M. A. 1'nderwood
and G. M. Beascly. The salutatory is
"short and sweet" but satisfactory, in
asmuch as it ranks itself under Demo
cratic banners. Monroe is one of our
new towns, now rapidly growing in size,
business .and population. We recall it
when the farm of Mr. Dillon was selected
as the county scat, when the court was
held in Mr. Dillon's house, and -when our
friend C. M. T. McCaulcy, well known as
a leading lawyer and able ami frequent
member of both houses of the Legisla
ture, went there to live, took up his
abode in Mr. Dillon's house, and with
all his early modesty, fell in love with
and married one of Mr. Dillon's daugh
ters, and is novJ- one of the "oldest in
habitants" of the town now grown to
consequence. For Monroe, with its two
railroads, is a place of large business,
mainly in cotton, and isin fact one of the
most prosjierous towns ill interior North
Success to the Register.
Mr. L. Muiiday showed us yesterday
the design for a memorial rose window
to be placed in the Christian church in
this city as a tribute to the memory of
J. M. and liliza Baird. It is the work of
J. & R. Lamb, of 5!) Carmine street, New
York. To our eve it is strikingly hcnuli
ful and appropriate. As the name "rose
window" indicates, the outline is circu
lar in relation to the top, the bottom
presenting a nearly horizontal line. In
the i cry centre is a scroll, on which arc
inscribed, as on the book of life, "those
gone liefore" in the midst of effulgent
I liirhl from which the ravs radiate to
darken into a rich amlicr as they recede
from the central source. The margin is
occupied with richly colored emblematic
figures, while at each side of the base are
two designs illustrative of the Alpha and
Omega, the In-ginning and the end, time
and eternity. The whole is chaste, taste
ful, appropriate and lieaulilul.

The organization of such an institution
in our midst is at present receiving the
very serious consideration of some of our
leading business men and capitalists.
Why not? The increase in the number of
houses and other subjects of insurance
enlarges every day. The common pru-
leuce of interest demands the protection
if insurance safe guards, and the result
is that annually large sums in the aggre
gate are carried away to secure such pro
tection. We find in the propositiou noth
ing hostile to, or even conflicting with,
the interests of the companies now doing
business here. They have been able and
faithful friends to Asheville. But they,
represented as foreign companies, have
had the cxicricncc of all active business
life that, "comiictition is the life of
trade." There is good reason why the
business men here should enter into this
coniK'tition. There is plenty ot business
talent here to successfully direct such an
enterprise; and there is also abundant
capital if il can lie diverted into this new
