The "Third Party" meeting of
Mr. Abbott L. Swinson in this city
Friday was very much of a fiasco.
In fact, it was of so minnte a nature
that it is hardly worth while men
tioning it and the handful of bolons
( ? ), who participated were of such
previous political unstableness that
they don t count " no how . lor
instance Ex-accidental Gov. Brogden,
of odious Republican rule, was one
of the aihuators and helped Mr.
Swinson to " run the meeting ". He
moved-and put the motion Mr-
Swinson being in the chair, that Mr.
Swinson's monthly newspaper, The
Agricultural JJee, be made the omc
lal organ ot the " xhird rarty in
Wayne county. Mr. Swinson was
made Chairman of the "Third Party
Executive Committee of the county;
Mr, Swinson was empowered to ap
point a man from each towruhip in
the county as a member of his execu
tive comtx.ittee,but up to this writing
he has been nnable to complete the
list, there not being any " lhird
Party " men to be found in some of
the townships. Mr. . Swinson ad
journed the meeting until he gets
his committee made up, ,snbject to
his call. There were by actual count
fortv who "stood up as voting on
the organization of the Third Party
in the county. That's all and they
were all there.

Messrs. Dan Talmage's Sons in
bulletin No. 1, rice crop 1892, issued
May 1G, sta'tt : The rice crop of the
United State3 this year under any
favorable growing conditions can
baidlv fall short of eight million
bushels, an advance of about 50 per
cent, over any previous year. The
basis of estimate is on acreage plant
ed, prepared and promised. The
enlargement is mainly due to plant
ers who have had previous expeii-
j . i tit
ence, out lurtber augmented oy
those who plaiting less cotton adapt
rice as a substitute crop; it being
equally safe and abundant as any
other grain and of much higher
value. The latter make the venture
in an expei imental way, judiciously
planting to a limited way, yet the
aggregate producftan therefrom
promises to be quite considerable.
About half the crop was seeded dur
ing March ana April: operations
suspended during May, but will be
lesumed early next ir..onth, continu
ing in the extreme South and South
west until the middle of July.
We remark in detail:
North Carolina Acreage greatly
enlarged; about the eatne quantity of
tidewater laud cultivated, but nearly
if not fully double upland. Seed
going to many new localities the
low price of cotton drawing atten
tion to rice aud othr substitute
crop?, L'ianters are exercising more
care care this year in the selection of
seed. Season backward, but now
progressing favorably.
South Carolina Acreage one-third
m ire t han last year; lowland slightly
increased; upland largely; lands in
much better order than last year;
cool, dry weather has retarded
growth. The rivers, especially the
shorter one have been quite low and
alt", but are now nearly normal
under recent rain-f all. Stand rather
poor but recovering tinder improved
conditions. Harvest likely to be
later than usual.
Georgia Acreage thus far plant
ed short of last year ' but prepara
tions for June quite extensive and
promisiug, a total of one-fourth over
avernge. borne complaints oi qual
ity of stand on early plautiugs and
of unhealthy looking rice on account
of a cold snap latter part of April.
In some instances there will un
doubtedly have to be plowing under
and replanting, but in the main crop
is doing well under higher tempera
ture and refreshing rains of the past
week.
Louisiana Preparations are be
ing made in every part of the State
to beat the record. Last year's crop
was so remunerative that acreage al
ready in and to be put under culti
vation will be fifty per cent,
greater than any previous year
double that of all other States
together. Conditions thus far
have beep generally favor
able. The rainfall, while heavy and
somewhat injurious in the low lands
where fields could not be well
drained, making trouble also in way
of grass ", in Calcasieu, and other
sections dependent on a. water sup
ply " from the Heavens above ". has
been beneficial and grain is thriving

By John B. Morris.
Never in the history of our republic
has there been such ?n alarming surplus,
not of money, but of financial statesmen.
Here, in our own county of "Wayne, even
in the streets of our little ci'y, Goldsboro,
we are in peril of baing run over aud
trampled by both urban and rural states
men wh'J-'take hold of financial problems
with an audaciousness that would shame
the unwise man precipitately seeking the
acquaintance and companionship of a
wildcat, ot these, there are those who un
hesitatingly commend or condemn mone
tary policies, prove or disprove banking
and treasury statistics, while disposing of
the most occult propositions of finance
with the delight of entire satisfaction to
themselves Students of finance, without
motives for preferment or beyond the point
of desire for acquisition of knowledge, for
intelligent guidance in delving lor iacts,
arrangement of statistics in logical se
quence, formation of opinion and quest
for the completest degree of moral and
political certainty or conviction, listen to
these so-called statesmen with a patience
not altogether inseparable from the recon
ciling qualities of sustaining grace. Te
am not a tew of new-era statesman, the
man ot thought, books, observation and
experience, while preserving the' exterior
ot respe-ittul auditor and repressing in
clination to radically dissent, can not,
withal, suppress the inward, but unex
pressed conviction, that the intelligence ol
these gentlemen would discredit the
knowledge and ability of an Eskimo who
may be able to distinguish the quality and
worth or the hide and tur ot an Arctic
seal from the skin and fins of a dried cod
fish. There is no more serious aspect of ma
terial affairs than th? ceaseless agitation of
the silver question. Not satisfied with the
law of July, 1890, a compromise in the
interest of wise conservatism making it
peremptory on the secretary of the Treas
ury to purchase 4,500,000 ounces of silver
and issue treasury notes and coin certifi
cates on the purchase value, the heretical
silver advocates, in advocacy of a less hon
est plan, have prostituted speech until we
are inundated by vernacular flood of dis
gusting, clamorous garrulity; a travesty on
freedom of speech.
Ot course the issue ot the national banks
is inadequate. Nor is any single system
adequate to supply a volume of money
equalling the average need and distin
guished by quality or expansion for spec
ial or suddenly created conditions.
Much has been written an-1 spoken to
prove that the national banking system is
inelastic, there is a charming, almost
rythmic resonance in the word elastic and
its negative inelastic. I believe that pedan
tic writers and speakers have rung the
changes on these words because of the
probable inference in mind of hearer or
reader that they were technically equipped.
and, withal, rare embellishers of Knglish
sentences. The ablest writing on current
problems of finance that I have read is
from the pen of Prof. Quarels, the distin
guished political economist of "Washiugton-
Lee University. But he, too, indulges the
' inelastic " dogma concerning our na
tional banking supply, though lie presents
interesting and instructing data. Had he
assimilated his facts, his pen would have
been wary to elude the careful stress
which he impresses on this misdunderstood
phase of the system.
Under the law ol f ebruary '.:5, lSbJ, no
association of persons may commence a
national bank until said association has
deposited in the treasury of the Unit :d
states interest bearing bonds to the
amount of one-third its capital. Under
the same law the government issues and
signs currency in the name of the bank,
for 90 per cent, of the market value of
these bonis; providing, however, that 00
per cent, oi such value shall not represent
more than the par value of the stocks de
posited. If the issue may not be readily
expanded or rendered -'elastic," there is,
at worst, but one-third ot the capital rep
resented by the issue of banknob s. There
fore, under this law the "inelastic." theory
may be discounted 66f per cent. For, the
re3t of the capital, two-thirds oi the entire
sum, is of currency common in the pure e
of any man, or in any private bank; snd
may be augmented by deposits, sustained
bv acquisition of loans.or contracted by ac"
commodation to borrowers; no less flexi
ble -nor "elastic" than the funds of private
banks or bankers. But the theorists of
the "inelastic" doctrine will now insist
that the law fixes the limit of the aggre
gate issue, while it is powerless to desig
nate even a minimum whole, and that for
ten years the circulation of these banks
has declined, descending from 315,000,-
000 in October 1382, to $123,000,000 in Oc
tober 1890.
In reply I will repeat that no single
svstem is adequate to furnish the needful
volume of currency. Our volume of
money is an output of greenbacks, coinage
of eold and si ver of standard weight and
quality, supplemented by sussidiry coins
of reduced weight but standard fineness,
smaller denominations, nickles and pen
nies, of base metal, and the national bank
issue.
The last, the national bank issue, may
be lessened, but, strangely, not contracted.,
and lessened only so far as the responsi
bility of the banks is involved. The gov
ernment may become the owner instead
of security-holder of the bonds, against
which the notes were originally emitted.
It is no longer profitable to national banks,
without a most extraordinary deal in the
purchase of bonds may be consummated,
to remain banks of issue. Interest bearing
bonds are so high that, when we remember
the 90 per cent, issue may not be in excess
of the par value of the bonds, we reulily
perceive how deeply this tax may go into
the assets of a new bank. Therefore,
banks which purchased bonds at a low
figure have found it more profitable to
sail their deposit of stocks, surrendering
to the government all responsibility for
the bills originally emitted to them. This
does not, however, depreciate the current
features, pristine quality, nor in any re
spect the monetary function of the issue.
Again: Many persons write and talk of
the national banking system as if it were
the sum total of our financial methods,
when, as I have shown, the circulation
lor which the national banks is responsi
ble is not much in excess c f $123,000,000,
less than one-tenth of Ihe entire sum of
our currency. Therefore, if this specific
isuebe immobile by reason of "inelas
tic" quality, not one-tenth of our currency
has this feature of rigidity. Therefore, the
"inelastic" theory may be discounted 90
per cent., when considering the currency
as a whole. And a3 we are now enlight
ened as to the non-perishability of the
monetary function of the national bank
note, we may multiply and subtract for
further discounts by the use of a cipher
known as a nought. Further, the national
bank note loses its identity, and is follow
ed with loss apprehension regarding its
functional power than the little silver
dollar, while wherring in the eddies of
commerce.performing a mission similar to
other emissions of currency.
The fact that these notes, which may to
any extent increase the circulating volume,
have reached us through the medium of
a government bank, does not disturb men
of brains, providing they have drifted into
the habit of using brains for thinking pur
poses, and not merely to keep a cavity in
the head properly plugged.
The false assumption that our national
banking system is the only medium
through, which money is issued is largely
with some, and wholly with others, the
pretext for the silver craze; a rebound from
the theory of "inelasticity' to an "elastic"
quality; an unlimited coinage of standard
dollars, stretching with such elasticity as
to presumably reach from time to eternity.
Last week, Mr. Bland's latest move
happily futile to authorize the Secretary
of the Treasury to coin the bullion in the
government vaults and to use the seignior
age, the difference between 371i grains
of fine silver and the weight of an ounce,
430 grains, or, w hat is more the purchase
value, in meeting appropriation bills.
This was another move in the interest cf
Montana and Colorado silver mine own
ers; another desperate attempt to make
371 grains fine silver supplemented by41J
grains of base metal, or alloy, worth a s
much as a gold dollar.
For the silver owners it was not enough
that in 1891 the government should filch
ij;l 1,000,000 in seigniorage, or excess of
coinage va'ue above purchase value; but,
with the greatei supply now in the treas
ury ,this crusade of thievery by the govern
ment was to be legalized beyond previous
exploits of dishonesty.
However, it is not of paramount concern
with the bullion owners what the govern
ment may do with ingots of silver when
thej-shall have passed from their hands.
Thelaw,under which the treasury is issuing
treasury notes and coin certificates on the
market value of bullion instead of a one
dollar note, or certificate, on the quantity
in the standard dollar, is unsatisfying to
the avarice of the bullion aristocracy.
Nor will they be placated until dishon
esty so dominates legislation that 66 cents
to them shall be worth $1.00, and $1.00
for the people worth but 66 cents, so far
as their patriotism would avert such a
result. The Third Party co-adjutor of
these silver men with his 66 cents worth
of silver stamped one dollar, but with a
possible purchasine power equalllnc
only its commercial value as metal, may
go, alter the end ot tiie bullion owner
has been attained, to the region where
an unfriendly gentleman, with cloven
feet, is popularly supposed to superin
tend a large and flourishing sulphur
works without tne aid of modern stand
pipe and improved water supply.
Heretofore, in this article, 1 have used
money, as a medium of exchange, inter
changeably with currency. But such is
not a nice nor even a correct use ot the
terms. Money is a measure of value.
What will not measure value can uot be
called money, though it. may be curren
cy. Money is stable, currency is unsta
ble, at least that part which is not mon
ey. jKi, by the common consent oi
mankind in ail age3, is precious and oi
stable value; therefore, gold, bearing the
imprint of the government, is money.
Silver is money to the extent that after
coinage it may intrinsically approximate
the worth of gold in the ratio established
bv law
But silver has fluctuated more than 20 per
cent, in one year ; therefore, silver is an
unstable money ; hence, excepting within
certain limitations, an unreliable money.
The treasury notes issued in payment for
bullion and the certificates for deposits of
bullion are not money, though they are as
eood as money, being representative of
that, which is the measure of value. The
issue of greenbacks during the war was
not money though it was currency. Each
dollar of this issue depreciated until it was
worth.,-at one time,a s. little as db cents
while gold real money lost none of its
value. Silver, however, fell far below its
stabler companion, gold. Silver, though
retaining to an extent the measure ot value;
lost its parity with gold; and the lesson
taught by the fiscal history of our country
from 1861 to 1879,18 years, demonstrates
that nothing but gold is the true measure
of value.
To obtain a decree sustaining the heresy
that greenbacks were money, Mr. Lincoln
packed the Supreme Court. Later, Gram
did the same thing. But despite the act
of Congress, the decree of the treasury and
the f ulmination of the sovereign law bench
of America, one dollar, as denom-nated, in
greenbacks,dropped to 38 cents. Nor were
these several pronunciamentoes, nor the
oestisre of Victorious arms, nor the declara
tion of peace, nor the general tranquility,
pot?nt to raise the value to the denomina
tional standard. But when the inceptive
measures of a Democratic House of Repre-
j sentatwes culminated in 187a m the re-
Bumntion of specie pavment on a coia
bases, what was the result? The Gold
Exchange, of New York, dissolved, ad
iourning sine die ; no more to play with
the currency . of a nation as a cat with a
babv-mouse ; nor to spread the blackest
shadows of a Black Friday, as when the
nation, shaken to fiscal centre, stood
appalled at the work of tricksters scoun-
drelson that memorable Fridav of mir
financial history.
Nature has unalterablv fixed t.h
of the metals, gold and silver, by giving
the preference of preciousness to p-nlrf
lievelations of the relative snrmlv in ti..
bosom of ths earth disclose a law of rela
tive vale e. Silver has its office as a token
money, or subsidiary coin, and to a wider
extent and greater degree when the de
nominational figure corresponds with the
commercial worth. Even then it must be
carefully watched, kept within limitations
wnere quantity and relative loss of preci
ousness may not depreciate coinage value;
or the quantity raised from the ground,
milled, refined and proffered to the Gov
ernment, will, resulting from the law of
supply and demand, lose much of the
measure of value.

Senator Vance.
Washington, May 15. Senator
Vance arrived here this morning
from his mountain home, at Gom
broon, N. C, where he waa taken
sick the middle of last week. Al
though the Senator rode ten miles
on a buckboard yesterday and spent
ast night on the cars, he made the
trip without serious discomfort.
Aside from the disagreeable effects
of the application of mustard plas
ters aud hot bags to his body, and
of the morphine administered to
him to relieve his sufferings, he is
comparatively comfortable.
When he reached his home he
ate a light breakfast, took a warm
bath and went to bed, where he en
joyed a rest after hi3 long journey.
Later in the day he sat up for a
time. Mrs. Vance, the Senator's
wife, says she hopes it will be a mat
ter of but a few days before her hus
band is able to be out again and re
sume bis senatorial duties. The
cause of his recent attack, she says
was tne result or a little imprudence
on the part of the Senator. He was
engaged during his recent visit
to Gombroon in superintending
operations on the plantation. One
day in the middle of last week,
while the snn was very warm, he
stood out in the damp field for some
time talking with one of his em
ployes. A3 a consequence he per
spired freely. Going up to his house
he sat down in a large, comfortable
chair, on the shady side of the yer
anda, and while sitting there he
was taken with a chill, whiih de
veloped into lumbago and sciatica.
Owing to the remoteness of the place
considerable delay was experienced
in securing the services of a physic
ian, during which time the Senator
suffered intensely. Domestic remedies
were applied, but they did not bring
substantial relief. After waiting
some time a physician arrived at
the house,acd administering a hypo
dermic injection of morphine, suc
ceeded in alleviating the sufferings
of the Senator in a very brief time.
