And like the mole, too, with its busy feet That dig afcd dig a never-ending cave, Our bidden sins gnaw tnrougn me boui and meet And feast upon each in its grave, A buried sin is like a covered sre That SDreuds and festers 'neath a painted face; And no man's art can beal it evermore. ; But only His the Surgeon's prom iaed crace. Who hides a sin is like th huntsr who Once warmed a fr zen adder with his ' breath: And when he placed it near his heart it flew With poisoned Jangs and stung that heart to death, A tculptor once a granite statue made, One sided only juu to nt its place; The unseen side was monstrous: so men shade Their evil acts behind a smiling face, O blind! O loolishlthus our sins to hide; And force our pleading hearts the sail to sin; O cowards! who must eat the myrrb, that Pride May smile like Virtue with a lying lip A sin admitted is nigh half atoned; And while the fault is red and freshly donn. If we but drop our eyes and think, 'tis owned. Tis half forgiven, half the cron is won. But it we heedless let it reek ana rot, Then pile a mountain on its grave, and turn.

There are two reasons at least for the great popular in tercets in college loot-ball, as manifested by the crowds that witnessed the championship game in New York yesterday and the important and interesting game at Manhetm. in all sees of the wotld men and women haye admired physical strength and prowesr. The form of the contests or games moat en. joed bas varied at ainerent pe- ruds and in different eountnop,biit their has been alwajs the same and it may be hoptd that t en never will oorne a time when manly ainu-cuc competition, in some form or another, will not be pr. pnlar. But there is a particular reaton just now why so much public ini tenst is concentrated in toot-ball that tormeriy was divided among other f ports. It is the oi.ly short, sharp and decisive game that is still pursued purely as a game and has not yet fallen in the hands of professionals. There i, therefore, entire confidence that a game- ot foot-ball will be a 'r qua re" game in which the beet team wnl win. This is no lonr felt about bae ball or many of the sports in which professional engage, and it is sel dom felt now about racing. And the many who like to risk their favor if not their money npon a trial of skill or strength or speed with the assurance that they will not be tricked, find what they want in college foot ball. There is, no donbt, an element oe biute force-about the game as now plaped that it not entirely ad mirable; but it is also a test of dis cipline; endurance and tempo f nch as few modern games afford and as long as it is kept nnder rght control and the mercenary spirit is kept out ot it there is no reason why its influence need be otherwise than wholesome. Phila Times. Sugar Planters. Nkw Orleans, Nov. 25 Gen. Win, Porcher Miles, President of the Ascension Branch of the Sugar Planter's Association, has written the following letter to President elect Cleveland? Dear Bib: Accept the con gratulations of the sugar planters of Louisiana-almost all of th m Democrats on your election and the triumph of reform in the Gov ernment. We hope for reforma tion of the tariff on just and far principles, something like the Mills bill, so generally acceptable to the Democratic party, in which no industry will be either hamper ed or oppressed, and yet sufficient revenus be raised for the economis cal administration of the Govern ment, With our best wishes for the soccers of your administration, and onr firm belief that it will prove as pure and patriotic and statesmanlike in the future as it has been in the past.

THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN- Let Their Will be Otoyed Some Reasons why an Extra Session of Congress should be called early After Cleveland's Inauguration- Cor. Birmingham (Ala.) News. Since 1876 the issue more earnestly pressed than any other by the Na tional Democracy has been " Tariff Deform " ; indeed, those words have been the war cry of the party for nearly twenty years. Whatever muy have been the tariff plank in each successive platform its substance has been tariff reform, until that demand has become the crystalized principle of Democratic faith. The fruits of partial victory have been practically lost, and the will of a large majority of the people, as ex pressed in four successive elections, kas been thwarted by a Republican Senate or Republican President, and not until now have they achieved a complete triumph by securing full control of both the legislative and executive branches of the Federal Government. Not until now has the Democratic party been in a position to redeem its pledges to the people, made and reiterated through five consecutive Presidential cam paigns. Why should the fulfillment of these promises and the execution or the trust so recently ana so fully confided to the party be un necessarily delayed? If "Republican protection," as embodied in the Mc Kinly law passed by the fifty-first Congress, was a thing fit and proper to be denounced by the Chicago convention as "a fraud the culmi nating atrocity of class legislation," it surely oannot be a fit thing for the Democratic party to dally or temporize with in the face of the pledged repeal of that odious law, as one of the beneficent results that will follow the action of the people in intrusting power to the Demo crat ic party. The argument that the call of an ilia session cf Cougiesa for the special purpo-e of reloiming the tariff will create such a state of dis trust and uncertainty in the busi ness affairs and conditions of the country as to produce and precipitate stagnation and trouble, is hardly tenvble. It has beeu fully realized throughout the length and breadth of the United States, and the world, for that matter, for at least sixteen years, that when the Democratic party secured full control of this Government, there would necessarily be a reformation ot the tariff along the lines of conservative reduction and fair equalization, and be cause cf this conviction and tor this purpose, more than any other perhaps, the voters of this country, by a majority of more than halt a million, determined on the 8th of this month, to commit the admin istration of its affairs to the Demo cratic party. It is as well known now as it will be twelve months hence that there must be a material change of our tariff laws. The only question of concern is: What will this chan ere be, and when will it take effect ? I will scarcely be contended that un certainty on these points will tend to quiet any unrest or nervousness that may be ielt by interested parties ; on the contrary, the opposite result will follow, and a long continuance of doubt as to what the changes will be and, when become operative might, and probably would, occasion more disquiet and lead to more business disturbances than the work of an extra aession of Congsess on the tariff laws. The sooner all doubts concern ing these mattere are put to rest by law, the better it will be for the country in all departments of busi ness enterprise ana activity. The Democratic party is pledged to wage no war oi extermination or destruction on any of the business in terests of the country, and the peo ple know it. This pledge has been abundantly emphasized by Mr. Cleve land. Had he not given assurance in so many words, his sterling hon esty and great statesmanship, tested and proved by four years of able and patriotic administration, would be a sufficient guarantee that no legisla tion, disastrous or harmful to the country, would meet his approval. it seems to us that an extra ces sion of Congress called in May or June, for the special purpose of revising the tariff and paesing a bill to take effect January 1, 1894 earlier or later as pindence might dictate would be good party pol icy and wise statesmanship. The preliminary work, such as organi zation of all necessary committees, etc , of the Fifty-tbird Congress could be speedily done and the na tional .Legislature get down to earnest action at once. This fact alone wou'd strongly impreea the country with the belief that Mr. Cleveland s will be strictly a business administration, and in spire the confidence of the people that the Democratic party will be faithful to its trusts and attend to the people's business. This done, Congress could proceed with the lights before it, without haste, to formulate and pass a wise tariff measure, tlie provisions of which would become perfectly known and understood men hs before it goes into tffect ; the yarioas in terests affctedby it would have time to thoroughly adjust them selves to its workings, while yet operating under the present law; the change would bo giadual,trade and trafic would be Us- disturbed than by the influence of months of suspense and anxiety, uo business couvnlsiona would be felt than were experienced upon the resump tion of specie payment and there were none then the country would begin torealizj the fullbeh' efits of this change long before a tariff bill could be paated by the next Congress in regular session, and the party would go again be fore the country in the Congres sional elections of 1S9A, not as did the Republican party in 1890 with the burden of its guilt and iniquity fresh upon it, but its fidelity to the people tried and proven by fair test and practical experience. An extra session accomplishing, as it would, the results above sug gested, would be a fitting response to the emphatic demand for early relief made by the over-burdened taxpayers on theSth of November. 1892. The people have spoken, let their will be obeyed. Bats Aboard Ocean Ships. Many persons who have recent ly crossed the Atlantic in the Ser- via are bitterly complaining to the New York Herald of the ereat number and terrible audacity of the rats which infest that ship. This is a common complaint on board most ot the Atlantic liners ... . vrenerany neither apology nor excuse is made for the existence of theso horrible pests, but when any thing at all is said in an explana 1 1 9 nr . torv way dv a snip s cmcers, it 13 that the rats come ab arJ when the ships are lying at their dock in New York and Liverpool and that to clear out one lot of them is only to make room for another. To a certain limited extent this is trae: but by the proper use ot tremps the rates should be very much thinned out on every voyage before the ship was two days at sea, while those not caught could be made to keep down in the hold, and not invade the state-rooms and ecurry over the faces of passengers as they lie in their berths, lo say that there is no wav to keep droves of rats out of passeng er s etateerooms is to admit that the t hip-officers d j not consider it to be a matter worthy of their at tention. Ic is in keeping with that policy winch is persistently puriu ed by some lines of considering the comfort ot passengers ot no con sequence to the ship's commander. liicti. Dispatch.

Ralkigh Nov. 26, 1892. As the Legislature of North Carolina is soon to assemble in our capital city, I have thought it might interest some of your read ers to take them back some fifty or sixty years ago and give them a glimpse of the legislature of olden times. It must be borne in mind that, while the state of North Carolina embraced iust as much territory then as now, there was no railroad built to the capital city. The members of the general assembly were therefore compelled to rely on the old stage lines from War renton, Newbern, Fayetteville and Hillsboro, or on private convey ances to get to Kaleigh. It must also be remembered that some of these stages reached Kaleigh only two or three times a week, and no newspaper was printed in Raleigh or North Carolina oftener than once a week. Tho telegraph had not been heard of, and it was no new thing to read in heavy head lint 8 the word3 "Fifteen days later news from iLnrope. Many of the membeis of the general assembly from remote counties had recourse to their own saddle horses. It was an age of fine blooded stock, and as most of these members were selected from the young and ambitious men of the state there was much rivalry as to who should ride the best look, iug or fastest horse to Raleigh. This was well understood at Ra leigh. There was no livery here to care for so large a numb r of hrses, and the farmers in the vici nity came in with propositions to provide for them during the sesx eion. It was generally stipulated that the horses should be brought into town every Saturday that the owners might see that full justice was being done them. The "Locact Taverr," which stood where the residence of Mrs. Geo. W. Swep son now stands, the corner of Saliso bury and Hillsboro streets, was the usual place of meeting, and the Saturday session wasctitrhort thai the young members m'ght inspect their favorite steeds. Then came the canteriag and trotting np and down the streets by the country- beepers, followed by the bantering of the owners, and many a spirit ed hoises race was witnessed each oaturaay, wnose riders names were borne on the journals of the two houses ot the general assembly Ot course much of the business of town was suspended in order to give tradesmen and mechanics an opportunity to'attend the "Legis lative -Uaces. The members of the general as setnbly of those days were simply Inquires7 and no constituent ever presumed to place "Honorable" before his senator's or commonor's name. I remember that once in the antetellnui days I consulted a gentleman who had been speaker of the bouse of commons as to whether he was not entitled to the prefix "Honorable." "No, sir," said he (and he was a man ot which the whole 6tate is proud) "only governors, members of con gress, the president of the United States and cabinet officers are en titled to that honor. All others are simply 'Esquires'". With 1840 came thr "Fire Wagon," (as our Cherokee Indians term the steam car) drawn by the historic "Tornado," Whirlwind" and "Spitfire," of the Raleigh and Gaston rail-road, and the blooded horses of the members gave way to the steam engine, and the members of the general assembly of 1893 who care to recall these racee on Hillsboro street will find in place of the clattering hoofs of former days the whirr of the electric car of today.

The Argus agrees fully with ths plain, honest and timely protest of the Raleigh State ChronicU in regard to the duty of the hour incumbent upon the patient and too long for bearing farmers of North Carolina towards their psuedo-frieuda and Mnfarmer leaders Marion Butler and S. Otbo Wilson. The Chronicle says: "The president of the North Carolina Alliance was one of the electors-at-large of the Third party. A fundamental prin ciple of the Alliance is that it is non-partisan. It was organized upon this idea, and many good men joined it because they believed it to be purely and simply an agricultu ral organization. These men can no longer afford to be silent when a political intriguer like Marion Butler is committing the alliance not onlv to politics, hut making it a part of a secret political society. It is a duty these men owe to themselves and to the agricultural interest of North Carolina to openly declare that Marion Butler has for feited his claim to the office he holds by his part'fc-anship, and to as openly repudiate his authority to sanction with the names of the farmers of the State the action of the recent convention at Memphis. It was the boast of that convention that it had the sanction of the names of many prominent alliancemeu throughout the South for what it did. Shall Marion Butler and S. Otho Wilson quote the assent of North Carolina farmers in defense of their course ? Shall they continue to claim the de fense of such an honorable shield ? Let the farmers take some action and disown such men. It is a duty they owe the State." The Peaceful Warriors, The speech of King Humbert in opening the Italian Parliament is in accord with that of the Ger man Emperor. Both nionarchs profess themselves the devoted friends of peace and concord, and in order to secure peace they find it necessary to maintain their war establishment, even at the expense of additional burdens on their over taxed people. Chancellor Von Capri vis speech yesterday, in presenting the army bill, is rather more significant than the Emperor's own, in that he more openly declares the policy of armed vigilance against Prance and Russia, taking occasion to re call the circumstances of the rup ture twenty years ago in a way that will not mollify the antagon ism ot the -trench. It is a reminder that Germany has got Alsace and Lorraine and meacB to keep them, it being well understood that France means some day to try to get them back. It will be a wonder if these great armies can be maintained among these peaceful nerghbora on tho Continent for many years more without coming together. Phila, Times. Some idea of the pension busi ness may be gathered from figure furnished by the New York Sun1 Washington correspondent. Twenty years ago there were but 238,411 names on the Government roll ; now there are nearly 1,000,000. In 871 the disbursement for pensions amounted to only $34,443,895, de creasing steadily, year after year, until 1878 when the Arrears Bill was passed and the new system of increasing pension a came into vogue. It will take about $180,h 000,000, to pay off Uncle Sam's debt of gratitude this year. There is consolation, however, in tne re. flection that the money will remain in the oonntry ond circulate for the most part among those who need it. It is better there than going to feed alien or absentee bondholders. ALWAYS EXPRESSIVE If there is any one man who can always be trusted to eay and do the right thing at 'the right time that man is Presidentelect Grover Cleveland. Now, as the Philadel phia Times says, while fully nine tenths of the people who voted for Grover Cleveland for President neither desire nor expect any official f&vors from him, a small fraction of his supporters, as is always the case after tho election of a new President, assumes that the chief duty of a President-elect is to part the spoils of victory They rush in upon him i l all hours of the day autl night and pereiet in pressing themselvei for offices which be cannot fill for months to come. When it is remembered that President-elect Cleveland has the gravest problems of statesmanship to grapple with; that he must con front a bankrupt Treasury with fixed or unavoidable expenditures in excess of the revenues, and that he must inaugurate a new econ omic policy without shock to the business interests of the country, the indelicacy, indeed in cceney. of distracting him by the ceaseless importunities of spoilsmen may be appreciated. Mr. Cleveland pro poses to perfoim hie full duty to the country firBt and to consider the question of offices after-wards. Before leaving for a week or so of rest in some secluded hunting fields of tho South, he prepared and gave out for publication the following statement that should be carefully considered by all office expectants: "I desire to give as much pub licity as posiible to the statement that I do not propoee to consider applications for office prior to my inauguration and I shall avoid all interviews on that subject. Those who under any pretense gain an opportunity to present their ap plications orally and those who burden me at this time with writ ten applications cannot possibly do anything which would so inter fere with their chances of success. Certainly between now and March I ought to have some time to deyote to other matters than receiving callers and considering subjects which should be postponed." The foregoing explicit and em phatic notice from Preeident-elect Cleveland will be disappointing to several hundred thousands who voted for him at the late election; but it will be specially gratifying to six millions or more patriotic voters who supported him because they want honest government. The only positions to be decided before the 4th of March next are the seyeral Cabinet portfolios, and they will be filled, after earful consultation with those who are best qualified for sincere and in telligent counsel, to harmonize with the personal views of the President. In addition to the selection of a Cabinet, that will require the most careful study and dispassionate judgment, the policy of the new admiuistraion will dem and the offices of the most patient and enlightened statesmanship, and to that end the whole energies of the new President will be devoted. When Mr. Cleveland shall haye been inaugurated and the prelimU nary work of establishing a new overn mental policy completed,the many necessary changes in the public offices will be considered; but then, as now, the most importo unate will be least likely to com- tuand tho favor of the President. Tbe civil service laws will be hon estly enforced and, while new ap pointinents will be Democratic, personal fitness and merit will ever outweigh party services which are not supplemented with the chara cter and capabilities needed in public trusts. The victory oi 1892 was not a spoilsmen's victory of the people who want tariff reform, electoral reform, pension reform, and civil service reform; and it should be as well understood now aa hereafter that Mr. Cleveland will be a willing worker to accom pliBh every reform demanded by th people in bis triumphant election.

The French Government has de csded, after remarkably calm deiibu eration, to prosecute the directors of the Panama Canal Company for enormous frauds, in the manage ment ot that disastrous enterprise. And alleged culprit is M, Eiffel, of Tower fame, who is said to have received $12,000,000 for work never dene and machinery never furnished. This i3 probably a gro3 exaggeration, for even a Panama Canal swindler would not darko make such a tremendous haul That there was gigantic swindling, however, is only too well known by the nnlncky Frenchmen who invested their little savings in tho big ditch. It io hard to believe that the aged De Le?seps was a party to the frauds, or aught but a mis guided enthusiast.
