The Hon. Robert Tayloif of Tennessee'
present Pension Agent for this section,
with headquarters at Knoxville, is at
present on an visit to Asheville.
Profuse local rains, in all parts of this
county keep up the fine condition of the
crops,- without having veryiaierialy
reduced the temperature. The weather
is still warm, not to say hot.
Mr. Freeman, formerly of Madison,
now of Swain, gives good accounts of the
tobacco crop of his new county. He
cays his present crop, of about 8 acres, is,
the beet h has ever had.
We were misinformed when we stated
the 2nd Regiment was dined on Friday
at the Swannanoa Hotel as well as at the
Eagle and the Grand Central. It is with
the two last that the arrangements for
the dining were perfected.
The mare Lou, belonging to Mr. R. E.
Best, of Shine, Greene county, N. d., on

She won every race in which she enter
ed over the Asheville eourse.
. We find that there are a large number
of visitors in Waynesville besides those
who have gone over to the Springs. The
hotels are all doing well and many pri
vate houses are entertaining guests. - We
are very much pleased that the attrac
tions of the pretty capital of aywood
are so luiiy recognizee
We observe, and alBO learn on other
authority than our own, that the crops in
Haywood county, corn, oats, grass and
tobacco, are uncommonly fine. Mr. Jas.
W. Terrell, of Webster, who has just re
turned from a visit to the upper Pigeon
Valley, says the corn crop there is better
i r... i r
man ever Known, aoib is erauiying in
contrast with the scarcity of last year.
Says the A ugusta (Ga.) Evening Newt :
Asheville was aglow on Wednesday
evening with a complimentary military
ball given in honor of Governor Scales,
of North Carolina. The Swannanoa Ho
tel was the scene of the midsummer
revelry and the brilliant and beautiful
women of several Southern States all
contributed bv their presence to make
it the affair cf the season. Augusta was
well represented and a beautiful and
bright eyed Broad street favorite was, of
course, the belie of the evening.

the colored people into a separate org

THE SALE OF THE CITIZEN.
According to advertisement, Mr.
Richmond Pearson sold at 'public
auction, to-day ; at 12 m.? enough of
te Citizen property to ' pay the
debt due him. It was bid off by
Capt. McLoud, for" us, Furman
Stone & Cameron. : - : ;i '.
There is more than twice enough
due us to pay. every cent, we owe.
Knowing the scarcity of money, we
have endeavored -to struggle on,
without annoying our patrons ; but,
it resulted in our being caught by. a
creditor, without means to meet
what was due him. ? He promptly
proceeded to the collection of his
debt, in the manner "provided by
law.". J;.i:: : "
When the people discovered, the
tendency tf our "embarrassment,' td
the best of their ability they have
responded, and hundreds have ex
pressed their concern by kindly as
surances. To meet the matter we
have had to borrow some money.
We were not lacking in friends to
aid us in this, and we must acknowl
edge, and we do so with pride, our
obligations for their kindness. The
note we gave , for the amount was
worth over two - hundred thousand
dollars, signed by democrats and re
publicans, whiskey men and anti
whiskey men, railroad men and
anti-railroad! men, fence men and
no-fence men, church men . and
anti no, we beg pardon, all are
churchmen, we hope but, gentle
men who declare theirjtppreciation
of the efforts of the Citizen under
its present management for the up
building ot Western Carolina, re
gardless of politics or other consid
erations or "previous ; condition of
servitude." They would feel a con
tempt for fhe managers of . the
Citizen should their service in this
matter control its conduct, just as
the managers would feel contempt
for such services granted for such a
purpose. The Citizen will continue
as it has been, a paper of and for
the people, working as it conscien
tiously thinks for the good of the
section and the - whole people, res
pecting differences . of opinion, and
demanding a like,respe0jitselfj
We sincerely thank" thV7 friends f
and people for their many- manifes
tations and expressions of kindness
and sympathy, and we pledge our
selves anew to every effort of which
we .are capable build up and
help the section and all the people
of Western Carolina. .
We shall have more to say, of a
personal nature, connected . with
this matter, s6on.

Mr. E. C. Belcher, of Hominy Valley,

weed is well grown, and compares well
with the growth of the other side of the

Buncombe is eoine to enter into competi

Mr. Belcher who is an old cotton planter

We ran over to the Springs on Saturr

At the request of a gentleman largely
concerned in the management " of the
financial natters of Madison we publish
the following letter. 'h We .'know nothing
of course" of the nieriteof the subject
though information given us at the July
term of the Inferior Court of the county
led us to infer a satisfactory condition of
affairs: ""'.' -
Messi-s. Editors:- As the Citizex is the
fearless mend of the good' citizens of
Western Carolina, all naturally : turn to
its columns to express their feelings of
wrong or felt oppression: The finances
of Madison Bee in to. be in a very bad
condition and badly managed to relieve
the good citizens of taxation, which has
been so burdensome for some time and
atill-growim; worse, without' paying tht
County debtTiTT334:tlua CiMinioners
of Madison became alarmed at the mag
nitude of the county- debt and began to
cast about in their "'practical judgment"
to release the county of the debtr and
concluded in their wisdom to pay the
debt in the space of throe or lour years,
which, of course, was a wise and good
plan. For this purpose there was a spe
cial tax levied to pav 1-3 of the debt the
first year, which made the Poll thTee
dollars, with every three hundreds dol
lars equal to the Poll; but the people
thought if they could get out of debt
they would be satisfied, so they paid the
exorbitant tax -in good:; faith. :.The4
county debt is now from ten to fifteen
thousand dollars: In 1885 the commis
sioners met and the subject of taxation
again presented itself. Well, there must
be something done to help the poor -peo
ple who are payinz such heavy taxes;
but what must it be, said the Honorable
Board? We will issue bonds to cover
the amount of the debt, drawing inter
est at 6 per cent., and running 10 years-
yes, this will be the thing to reduce taxes,
so we will proceed. Well; Messrs. ed-
itors we will say this is all right and
very good, if our taxes had been bet tered;
but in the wisdom ol the Board. there
was to be another tax levy in '85. Now,
remember 1-3 of the debt was to be paid
last year, they have bonded tha remain
der and released the payment lor 10
years; but when they "go to reduce . the
tax according to their calculation, be-
hold they reduce from three to three and
a half dollars poll ! Now,, gentlemen, if
this is economy, my country jave ub
from the opposite.; ' .' ..; '
Now, Messrs. Editors'- let facts and
figures tell the story. The county owes,
1 believe, about lo,0(J0, wearing interest
at ft per cent., which, in 10 vears, will "La
$9,000, interest, nearly two-thirds of the
present debt. - - ...
Now, would it not have been better to
have paid the debt in three years and
saved the $9,000. interest ? Let reason
and good judgment answer. The people
of Madison county could have paid out
of debt m three years with all ease, so
the commissioners said themselves. Now
if this could have been don why in the
name of reason did they not do it, and
not bond the county in order to pacify a
rine who has always monopolized, the
monev interests or : Madison , county
through its commissioners, and burdened
the good people of the county with-the
nine thousand dollars' interest,-which
will tro down deep . into the pockets of
the bondholders The commissioners
of the county bonded, not because it is
better, but to have the people pay $9,000
which thev do not owe. . lhe Dondiioid -
era said the tax, in order to pay the debt,
would be too heavy and the commission
ers said they could have paid out in three
years and, not raise the. poll above $3,
anrl nn thev have bonded and the noli
is $3.60. Why not have paid the debt
at this rate? Because the, ring and a
radical or two said it would be too hard
I must desist, though reluctantly. Is
the above economy ? Is it justice or hon
est? Is it working disinterestedly ? Is it
right for people to submit to such high
handed fraud as this any longer? The
whole neode of Madison county will
rise uu in mass and say it is not ! And
tbey say right v I remain,- V:" "

The Reoeption and the Ball. .
A misconception, injurious to the pro
prietors of the Swannanoa Hotel, has
taken hold of a portion, of the; public
mind in regard to the . reception of the
Governor and the ball on Thursday
evening last at the Swannanoa Hotel.
Both occasions are made, to appear aB
one, and coincident. The recption was
arranged as a separate and distinct affair,
to take place in the parlors of the hotel.
But in view of.the very large concourse
tb' committee 'proposed to adjourn- to
the' Bail room, .whew . the space was
ample.- The arrangements for the ball
had already been made, prices fixed and
tickets issued. 'Admission to the ball
was in no sense admissive to the recep
tion. It should occur to those who com
plain, that to all ball : rooms some safe
guard must be fixed against promiscuous
entrance. This is a universal rujo.

A GREAT FIRE IN TORONTO
toss Several Millions of Dol-"-.'.
. - lars. ' -
' ' ; Toronto, Canada, Aug. 3.
One of the most destr active fires that
dyer has taken place in Toronto com
menced at 12:30 this morning in the
large building occupied by the Bugar re
fining company on the Esplanade. A
strong wind, blowing from the east, car
ried chunks of burning timber along the
Esplanade, igniting the wooden build
ings as far west 5 or 6 blocks. In a short
time the refinery and a number of other
buildings were burned. Three schoon
ers were burned to the water's edge. The
fire is a half mile in length. ; .
2:45 a. w. the work of the destruction
on the "Esplanade still goes on; the flam
es having reached the intervening buil
dings' and wharves having been burned
to the ground. The Great Western
frejht sheds, formerly the passenger
station on the north side of the Esplan
ade, was on fire and in immenent dan
ger, and was expected to be in flames
every moment. The steamer Chicora is
getting up steam to go out into the lake,
the steamer Ontario got up steam, and
began to tow out the steamer Mazeppa,
but a schooner blocked the way and they
could not eet out the Mazerma has
caught fire and the three will have to
succumb unless, the wind changes, the
whole south side of the Esplanade as far
as Union station will undoubtedly perish.
Showers of sparks are being carried to
the opposite side of the street; and if the
buildings there cateh fire there is no say
ing what immense danger will bo done.
Tho fire brigade is absolutely powerless.
It is feared that the watchman Worth of
the sugar refinery has lost his life, as he
has not been seen since the fire started.
Wm. McCalum, seaman of the schooner
Annie Mulvev, is dangerously burned
about the head. Several elevators, coal
yards, schooners, ferry boats, &c, and
many boat hotises are among the pro
perty burned. The loss so far is estima
ted at over several millions of dollars.
' ' '- LATER STILL.
3:50 a. m. so far the fire has been un
able to cross Grape, Scott, and Yonge
streets and wharves, but is completing
the destruction on tho paths it has al
ready travelled. A hurricane has just
sprung up from the Southeast, which
threatens to drive the fire across tho
street to the main part side are burned
Bcrnearly fcy tlic gru ml ttvtt d uulueu
main part of the city catches fire from
the sparks, it is thorght to be safe.
4:30 a. m. the fire is now under control.
It is impossible to obtain the losses and
insurances at present.
THE PRESIDENT TO GO TO
ALBANY AFTER. THE
Movements of the Cabinet..
Washington City, Aug. 3.
It is probrfblo that the President will
visit Albany after the funeral of Gen.
Grant, before ho goes to the mountains
He expects to - get there Sunday next.
Secretary Manning, who will Bpend the
month of August at Watts Hill, Conn.,
with his family, will probably accompany
him to Albany. It is expected that Sec
retary Lamar and Attorney General Gar
land will remain in Washington during
the President's absence. Other members
of the Cabinet will take a .vacation.
Owing to the illness of Mrs. Bayard it is
not expected that the Secretary of State
will spend much of the Summer seas in
in -Washington, and Postmaster .Gen'l
Yilas will spend most of the summer at
their homes. The two former will make
short visits to Washington whenever
their presence is required. It is not
definitely settled what day the Presiden-
tiaL party will leave Washington for
New York; but it will either be "Thurs
day or Friday of this week, most likely
the latter day.

There appeared in. the Asheville Ad
vance of the 1st inst. an article, copied
from the Waynesville News, a complaint
of some livery man charging Col. A. B.
Andrews $5 for a drive from the Swan
nanoa Hotel to the Asheville depot.
The Advancf makes an explanation of
the affair, but fails to state who the.
livery man was; and as the public didn't
know, wo called at the office of the Ad
vance Saturday evening and asked the
Editor to state that it was not us. buth
has kept silent on that matter, possibly
thinking that six livery stables could
stand it better than one. That is for
him to explain..
W e did not state who the livery man
was, but wish to say to the public that it
was not done at our stables. If any .
such' charge should be made by our "
drivers, report the matter to us and you
will Always get reasonable charges, even
if at midnight. We invite the citizens
of Asheville and all visitors to call on us
