But while we feel ihat a man who was an ideal Mason, square and uj right, a model citizen, genia', true and just, has left ue, we, feel also that, for him, to die was eternal gain, and therefore we weep not as men without hope, but, even in the midst of our grief, rejoice in the knowledge chat he has been trans ft-rred from this earthly habitation to "that House not made with hands, eternal in the heavens" And whilst we ' can no longer seek counsel from him who was one oftl;e oldest and inot highly esteemed members of our Ancient, Order, we can lo'.low his uio-t ex cellent example and pray to Ltim Who is mighty in wisdom, merciful and good, to make us what we &houid be, earnest laborers in thut state of life to which it hath pleased God to call us.

CANDIDATE S. After Mr. Cleveland's election in 1884, it was developed eariv that there was extra hunger among the Democrats for office. Ihey had been absolutely out in the cold since Buchanans term expired, March 4th, 1861. It was observable, too, that the fierce Democracy of many found expression in a painful solici tude for a share of "the spoils" that were soon to be distributed. The number of men qualified for office of all kinds, from Cabinet appoint ments to postotice runners, was marveiously large, and if any had doubted before as to the abundance of timber fitted for all places, it was dispelled at a glance, It was re vealed at once that American abiiitv. aptitude for office and high states mansbip had in no way depreciated with the years, but iu every town snip there were inchoate statesmen and unfledged Hamiltons, Walkers, Jeffersons, and Jacksons who were ready to save the country and help to dictate its policy for another term of four years. How fortunate a country is that contains so many great men of unselfish patriotism aud extreme modesty. At once it was seen that the supply was equal to the demand. "Witb Grave Aspect they arose, and in their rising seemed A pillar of State; deep on their front engraven Deliberation sat, and public care. And princely co ansel in their laces shone Majestic." We rejoice to say that the promise is that in uo wise is the supply dim inished during the very iot:g, un fortunate and disgraceful four years of tiw little fellow- from "Ingeeany," known as Benjamin Harrison, who will return to the shades of private life at least " unwept ", but will be comforted with the consideration that he still holds "grandfather's hut "'. How happy the land when it is known that "its breed cf noble bloods" is undiminished, and tbat men are still patriotic and Self-sacrificing enough to serve their coun tryfor a consideration. It is very pleasant to contemplate such de lightful self-immolation. The coun try is safe. Let the music proceed. "Hail to the Chief !" We maj' take leave to say that several gentlemen of personal clever ness are already mentioned as good Cabinet timber from North Caro lina. Governor Holt would like to sit with the Cleveland " happy family" in that famous room in the White House. Mr, Simmons, who served as Chairmau of the Demo cratic State Committee, is also being urged by his friends for a place in the Cabinet. Doubtless there are a dozen others. The New York Sun, most treach erous of newspapers, and as much a protection sheet as the New xork Iribune or. the the JNew York Aven- ina Mail and Express is, is making a Cabinet for Mr, Cleveland. It will be remembered that the great states man surprised tne country in 1884-5 by the Cabinet he then formed. He will make hi own Cabinet again The tricky Sun makes three. In the first ail are from Aew xork. In the second, t'o- are. from the greatest State. In the third, only one In all these there is but one South ern mau named, and he is from Missouri. Aud that is character istic or tne treacherous paper. Who elected Mr. Cleveland, New York cr the South? Wilmington Messenger. The New Cabinet. These t re lively times for Cabi net maKer.j. lusre are scores and apparently hundreds of Democratic leaders anu organs assuming, that they must take a hand at onco in the formation of the new Cleve land Cabino!; bat it would be wel for all not to 1 jso sight of the one man who will have the last g,ucss at ti e constitutional advisers of the new Preside it lie has not been inclined to babble on the subject and while he is ei lent, others won't make much progress in awarding Cabinet ponors. . (. It goes without saying that if William C. Whitney desired, or would accept, a potitioD in the new Cabinet ho would receive i' with the -hearty' offering ot the President find as hearty approyal not o'i'Iy from his whole party but trom the country irrespective o' politic?. Ho iscnoofthe f?v men who exhibit tho highest q-iaiitles ol the statesman ir. all. his move ments as a politician, ard he would adorn any, posi'ion in the Cabinet. It is quire probable, however, that he would not accept ho pcs.tiou, as both h's business nteresfsatid political possibilities ogically forbid it. Without any knowledge on th; subject not accessible to all, we assume that it Mr. Whitney shah lot accept a porlfo'io ur der tht new admiiistrbtion, the Cabinet will be composed entirely of iew men. Among the apparent p. 83"- bilities 'u Senator Gray, of Deia ware, whose transfer to the Cabinet would doubtless recall Mr. Bayard to the Senate, wheie he wuuld mo3t fitly round out hia eminent pub'ic career. New York will have a Cabinet officer, of courfo, and he will doubtless be fis a man whom the President want,-; and, second, a man who will not be offensive to either of the pa-ty tactions in the tate. v hitney would completely fill the bill, but if he shall decline, there mu3t be others who con id, at east, go im!o the Cabinet without protest from either side. How long any New York Cabinet minister can hold the party to unity iu that State, is one ot the problems that only the future can solve. A CAKD. Editor Argus : The resolutions of indignation against two of our citizens published in Wednesday's Aege'3, purports to express the iu dividual opinion of every member of the Cleveland and Carr Club. As a member of that Club and a Democrat who yields to no" man in the strength ot his Democracy, I de?ire to say through your columns that the resolutions do not express my individual opinion. We have won a gloriou3 victory; iet us rejoice, but let us remember that the brave conqueror is always magnanimous tovrr.rd the conquer ed. J. Y. Joyxir. N. C. STATE GUARDS.

Terrible Cyclone, Red Bcd, III., Nov. 17. A cyclone visited this beautiful little town at 3 30 this morning, and to day it is a scene of wreck- and desolation. House , barns, fences and c-rchards are levelled to the ground and spread over curround- ing country. Entering from the Smth, the cyclone first demolished the Catholic church and school, and the residence of Naaman Drage. The German Lutheran church was next levelled to the ground. It struck the large two story residence of solid Etone, and crumbled it to fragments. Mrs Kendall was severely injured, lhe large double brick house occupied by D.

Tho AVilson Advance Says Truly and timely that tliei-e ought to ho no Contest against ,x jcoclc and Glenn. The Argus has so often expressed it3 estimation of Hon- Charles B Aycock that it is familiar knowledge that this paper is for him for any thing he may aspire to, and we feel that in expressing ourselves thus we express likewise the sentiment of the larg? majority of the Democracy of North Carolina. So, too, The Akgus recognizea that Hon. R. B. Glenn, also, has pre-eminent claim to prefermeut at the hands of the triumphant Democracy of the land. Hence we copy with full endorse ment the following timely editorial from the current issue of the Wilsoa Advance : As is perfectly natural, there are many aspirants for office under the rew Democratic administration. There are 25,000 men whose labors and sacrifices to the party entitle them to the best that can be giver. Never before did Democrats work so well and so unselfishly. Is is to be regretted that til cannot be rewarded in proportion to their services. The people of North Carolina everlast ingly believe in the doctrine, "To the yictors belong the spoils There is no trouble about differing faiths. The troubla is that there are so many victors who want and deserve reward, that the tfficcs will not go round. But while "there are many deierving, there ought to be no con test over two positions and no oppo sition to grautiug the rearouable aspiration of Chas. B. Aycock and Robert B. Glenn, electors for the Sta?e at large. They were called at great sacrifice of personal comfort, time and professional du'ies to hold aloft the Cleveland colors on every stump and they heeded the call. No two rneti ever made more reputation in the same length of time, and cer tainly no two ever made abler or stronger presentation of the gospel of Democracy. We have wod, and it is largely due to the brilliant cam paign they made. It i3 an open se cret that M -. Aycock would like to be IT. S. District Attorney for Eac tern North Carolina, and Mr. Glenn dtsires the same position for Wes tern North Carolina. There are other deserving een and there are other plums. Eat no two men are so conspicuously entitled to receive the recognition of their ambitious as Mr. Aycock and Mr. Glenn. The Advance suggests to all aspirants: Give Mr. Aycock and Mr. Glenn these positions without contest. Let them have the gratification of know ing that their services are to highly appreciated that, without contest, the whole people of the State gives this deserved expression of confi dence and gratitude. It would be more seemly that this should be done by acclamation, and it would please all the fnende of these gen tlemen if this should be done. LIST OF LETTERS.

Taking Political Economy for cur guide, e assume the position that the government which gives to the people the best advantage for the promotion of their interest and wel fare, is indeed the fulfilment of the chief purpose for which it was es tablished, and therefore should re ceive the hearty support of its sub jects. I his, we believe, la the object of the Df-mocratic party, as evinced in all of its proceedings, from its in -ception down to the present day. Let us see : Thos. Jefferson, Madison and Muoroe, and later on Jackson, and last, though not least, the President-elect, Grover Cleve land, have endeavored to secure such legislation as would be promotive of this end. In the four years that the last named filled the executive chair, we nnu by reference to all or his messages and utterances, a remark able coincidence in every particular. Such a man, as well as such a states man, ia not met up with in eyery--Jay lift; and what is better still, the peo so believing, have given the most expressive and decided evi dence by the almost unprecedented and overwhelming yote east at the ballot box. Conceding this to be the truth, we feel and believs that in view of pub lic expectation, the incoming ad ministration will be wise enough to move hoth cautiously and sure; and first and foremost, as of paramount importance, it must, iu the exercise of its appciuting power, see to it that the Augean Stables are thor oughly cleansed by the removal frcm office of all those who have been cor rupt and betrayed the confidence lcpos.d in them. Such, for instanc?, es the manage ment of the Treasury Department, which, we are told, is deficient in funds needed for the maintenance of the Government, and the obliga tions incurred by Congressional en actments, embracing such measures as Internal Improveineuts, Pen sions, etc. Then, again, there is the Tariff. This has got to be reyised and so amendeel that McKmley's odious Bill may be killed, and taxation reduced, and the pesple be thereby relieved of needless oppression. Now, it seems to us that the un wise aaministration ot i'resiuent Harrison hzs left a big job for the incoming Administration to execute, and while it has to be done, it must be done, and yet not hastily. No need "haste might make waste" and afford "nuts for our enemies to crack." Already our opponents are indulg ing in the hope that mistakes wil be made. Let us disappoint them. We can, and we hope it will be done. The judicious appointment of the various Congressional committees will constitute the important factors in this direction, and with the assur ance of having a wise Executive to manage the helm, we may go on to a higher and nobler destiny than has ever been reached be "ore in the history of our natiocl We believe a beneficent Proyidence is with us in approval and all we have to do, in the use of the means afforded us, is to be "as wise a3 ser pents and as prudent as doyes." Another Expedition. Washington, Nov. 18. Lieut. Peary, who commanded the Kite expedition into .Northern Green land, is anxious to embark on an other expedition, this time with the purpose of reaching the North Pole. He has already made ap plication lor leave absence for three years, and this application lias been sanctioned by the Bu reau of Yards and Docks, but from piesent indications, if Lieutenant Peary goes he will have to relin iuieh his commission in tne navy a3 civil engineer, as in view of the pressing need for an additional number ot civil engineers to keep pace with the increasing construe tion ot naval dry docks and other works, Secretary Tracy does not feel warranted in allowing one of the senior engineers, who has al ready been absent under leave pay for two years, t' absent himsalf for three years more at the publ ic ex pense.

Little if any more than one-half of the amount goes to worthy pen sioners, and the Treasury is now bankrupted by th-s feanul proli'.ga acy. Tne revenues, even witn high taxes, will not pay the pres ent pensions and legitimate ex penses of the government, and what is to be done? One of two things must be ac cepted at once. Either we must largely increase taxes upon the people, or we must weed out onr unworthy and iranduient pension. Which will it be? The people will protest against cutting off roba bery, and the protest of one or the other must be respected. Will the people demand that the pension roll shall ba made "a roll of honor," a3 Mr. Cleveland sug gests, or will they be content to pay from fitty to one hundred mila lion of taxes annually to pay pen sions to men who never honored the army in war and have never honored citizenship in peace?
