The death of Hon, Jos. J. Davis,

A Force of hands is at work on
East Centre street between Walnut
and Chestnut, breaking ground pre
paratory to the paying of the street
with shell rock. This much needed
improvement is another indication
of our city's progressive spirit of im
provement, and soon East Centre
street, like Walnut, where the expe
riment of shell rock paving proved
so satisfactory, will bid farewell to
the slush and mud which have here
tofore rendered it "altogether disa
greeable," besides giving the travel
ing public on such occasions any
thing but pleasant impressions and
recollections of Goldsboro.
The death of Mr. A. B. Thomp
. , ' l i wbuiiuu III VUUCIT mviuiue
about 11 o'clock, at his home in this
county after a lingering illness of
many months, lie was one ot our
best citizens, universally esteemed,
and greatlv beloved by those who
knew him well. He was the un
ipromising friend of right, fear-
less in its advocacy and exemplary in
his own life. He was a zealous
member of the Methodist Church,
and died in the unfailing hope of a
glorious immortality. A good man
has gone out from among us and the
people will sincerely mourn his loss.
A wife and seyen children, also one
brother, Mr. Wm. B. Thompson, and
one sister, Mrs.Ben j. Reeves, formerly
of this county but now of Beaufort
county, survive him. His funeral

to expect that the bondholders

but the courts are in the way, and
it is misleading the people to tell
them otherwise. Is this all ? No;
the balance of the principal of the
war debt nearly a thousand mil
lions of dollars must be paid. This
is about $83.00 to the average fam

the average family will pay $5.50

This summing up bhows us about
how much the average lamily is

ily pays altogether about $40.00
1-12,000,000 of $500,000,000,
which is now the regulation
sum fixed by the Reed Congress.
Deducting from $40.00 the fixed
snm of $24.50, we have $15.50 as
the annual tax which may possibly
be reduced, but the possibility in
my judgment, ia very remote. A
high priced bale of cotton then may
be set dovrn as the tax which must
for tbis generation at least be paid
by the average family, and deducting
from this sum what the negroes in
the South fail to pay and adding to
the burden of the whites, you can
besrin to realize the magnitude of
the load.

This drain is caused by the extra
amount added to the real value of
home-made goods, becat.se the heavy
taxes levied on similar foreign-made
goods runs the price of them up so
hum that domestic manufacturers
have a practical monopoly of our
markets. I can make this clear by
eiving some facts which have come
to the knowledge of the country
The organized merchant tailors,
I representing all or nearly all the lm
loortant cities in the Union, have

hear people declare that- this is a
government of the" people, by the
peopH and for the people!
Now this system of-taxation com-
pels you, if you purchase an English
sait worth, say $10, to pay a tax
or $y.uu, so tnat your entire onuay is
$19.00, and if the statement of these

Jf my position 'on this question
is without jastification, why is it
that the protected manufacturers of
this country contribute so largely to
the campatgu corruption f ud of the
Republicans, and bully their em
ployees into voting the Republican
Good judges have estimated that
we pay from five to eight times as
much "protection money" to our do
mestic manufacturers as we pay to
the Federal treasury on imported
goods, because we nse a great many
more of them.
To add to the curses inflicted on
the farmer, he ia compelled to seek a
market for 7-9 of his cotton and a
large fraction of his wheat, beef,
pork, tobacco, etc., in the trade
centers of the old world, where he
comes in competition with similar
agricultural products produced by
the cheapest labor in Europe, Asia,
Africa, aDd South America. Do the
people understand this ?
Another damaging result of our
laws hampering freedom of trade is
worth considering:
All trade: between two countries
must in the long run be nothing but
barter, if there is anything like an
equality of benefits. On this theory
1 have collected the figures showiug
the average amount 01 goods aud
money exported from the U. S., and
the average amount imported into
the TJ. S. per annum, for the thir
tetn years from 1875 to 1887 inclus
ive : and 1 give them to you in a
table, which shows that the farmers
furnish nearly six times as much of
the exports as all other classes. Now,
bearing in mind that $19 worth of
farm produce must be taken to pay
for a $10 suit of clothe3, and that
.11 other barters aie hampered more
r less in the same way. you can be-
siin to see how the farmer is robbed

Here is another interesting fact:
$60,000,000 of farm produce and
other exports are represented by
nothing sent here in return. Multi
ply tbis by 13, and we find that
during those 13 years foreigners car
ried o2 from this country, for which
we got nothing m return, the enor
mous sum of $780,000,000 in agri
cultural products and other goods, of
which the farmers furnished nearly
6-7. Nearly all of this vast sum
goes to pay interest aud principal
mainly interest of debts due for-
eigners, and as the volume or ousi-
ness increases the gold dollar appre
ciates so that the debtor will have to
send more and more of produce to
meet a given amount of debt.
This explains why Europe so sav
agely fights the free coinage of silver.
And for the same reason the creditor
section of this Union the New
England States, N. Y., Penn., N.
J. opposes the free coinage of
Thus, Mr. Stevens, hi,ye I at
tempted to give you some of the con
ditions besetting us some of the
evils affecting us, and seme of the
difficulties in our pathway. When I
contemplate them my courage and
my hope fail to reassure me, and I
turn away with saddened heart.
Look at other conditions and
troubles, suggest remedies if you can,
and still the futuie is dark. Relief
must come, when it can come,
through Federal legislation ; but, as
I have shown, legislation is power
less to reform all abuses ; yested
rights are in the way. The only
ground of hope is that the people
te great army of the oppressed
may grow in a knowledge of the
true situation and of the sources of
relief. Better views will then pre
vail and the sense of justice will be
quickened; and out of the wrongs
and angry passions of the present
may be evolved better material, in
dustrial and moral conditions. But
all this is in the future, and for that
futnre we must work.
Well, I am tired of writing, and
there i3 so much noise in the House,
I find it difficult to follow a consis
tent line of thought, so J will stop.
Wishing you health and happi
ness, and hoping your reunnion may
be productive of pleasure and of
permanent benefits, I am, &c ,
