The Republican press is gleting
over its pretended discovery that
there are signs of discord and strife
in the Democratic camp. We are not
able to discover any such signs. It
seems to us that the party is better
organized and more harmnuious than
it has been in a long time. Its re
cent grand victory was won on a dis
tinct dtclaration of principles n hich
all true De:noc;ats endorse. The
country knew just what it was do
ing when i; overthrew a Republican
administration and called a Demo
cratic administration to succeed it.
Theke has been a great rush of
both cotton and rice on this market

ent the country is upon the
town and the town upon the country
for mutual susteuance. Let us, then,
all resolve "to pull together" in good
spirit ana mutual . benefit, and we
will go forward to greater things
during the coming New Year than
we have ever accomplished in the
past. Let s try it.
Mb. Smith F. Turner, the ad
vance agent of the "Fast Mail" com
pany, is in the city for the purpose
of billing the town for his show,
which has the Boards of the Mes
Eenger Opera House next Tuesday
night, Lec. 27th. The first thing
Mr. Turner did on arriving yes-erday
waa to measure the proportions of
the stage, and he says that it is of
splendid dimensions and that he
can produce the play, with all
its grand and thrilling scenic
. effect, just as it is presented in all the
great centres. Everybody ha3 heard
of the "Fast Mail" it is standard
and no one in Goldsboro should miss
seeing it. If the people of Goldsboro
desire good shows to visit the Mes
senger Opera House henceforth, they
must show their appreciation bv a
liberal patronage. The "Fast Mail"
is standard and the new management
of the House is determined to play
only standaid' companies or nothing.
THE ELECTORAL VOTE.
Some ''Hitches"' That Should be Re
medied, It is strange that there fhould bs
still eome irregularities in the
casting cf the electoral votes of the
states.
The Constitution provides that
congerss may determine the day
on which presidential electors
shall give their votes, "which day
shall be the same throughout the
United States." By the act of
1792 the first Wednesday in Dec
ember, was set as the day. This
statute stood until it was supplant
ed by tho act of February 3, 1887,
which changed the day to the
6econd Monday in Jnnary follow
ing the choice of electors, and that
is the law.
The day for the election of the
Preeident and "Vice-President will
therefore fall on the 9th of Jans
uary, 1893. Two States have fails
ed to conform their statutes to this
federal lav, which is, of course
supreme. They are Kentucky and
Michigan. The electors in the
formerState meet on the 7th of this
month as the "Kentnckv statue still
conforms to the federal law of
1792.
When Michigan changed rea
cently her method of choosing
electors, strange to fay the new
aet was made to tit the federal act
of 1792 instead of that -of 1887. la
both these States the electors will
meet again on the 9 of January, so
a3 to act in accordance with bo'h
the state and federal laws.
The legislatures of Kentucky
and Michigan will probably catcb
np with the times by enacting na
tional election laws which do not
conflict with the federal statue,
CHRISTMAS TREES.
SOME FACTS AND FANCIES. KEkATTVE
TO THE FESTIVE OCCASION.
This is Christmas week the
world over, and next Sunday is
Christmas. Everywhere hearts
are gladdening and softening to
the spirit of the gracious time, and
"Christmas Trees" are assuming
the bewildering bounty that makes
the hearts ot the young joyons and
those of the elders neditative.
Wheuce come the Christmas
trees and greens? The answer to
that qnestlon depends largely on
thft perpon to wi om the inquiry is
jut. Ask a student of peoples and
( i,ti. nl r-DRtooiB and he will tell
yon tuat th' C irist mas greeaery of
every torm is a part of our heritage
from Rome, the one-time mistress
of the world. The Roman Satur
nalia, the yearly time of freedom
and gaiety, which degenerated nn
der tbs empiro into the yearly ea
son or' license and debuncbery, had
the decorating -with greens and
with boughs and email trees as one
of its distinguishing ieatuie.
The fact that the Christmas tree
custom cornea to ns throusrh the
Germana is bnt reminder of the
victorious cb mpa'giis of the Roman
Genrral DrnBiia among what were
then the barbaric horde of the
noitb, the German tribe. The con
quer'ng Roman legions took everv
when- with them, not only the
military pyetem, the engineering
ability and the language of the
mistress of the world, but her cus
toms. The Satuanalian tree took root
in the north and waited until the
advent of Christianity, when a new
meaning was given to it, and the
" Christmas tree," with . itsinconi
grnous fruit, waa grafted, upon the
original heathen stock.
Ask a ch'lJ whence coino the
Christmas greens and trees, and,
with a beautiful faith in things be
ing what they seem, he will prob
ably inform yon that Santa Clans
is respoasiblo fcr their planting in
the homes every year.

Washington, Dec. 20. Mr.
Bate, of Tennessee, spoke in favor
of repeal of laws authorizing the
employment of Federal supervisors
and special deputies at elections.
Those laws, Mr. Bate said, had
been in operation over twenty
years, and had not reconciled the
people to their harsh interference
with affairs belonging excclusively
to the States. It was not surpris
ing that the late political resolu
tions of 1890 and 1892 bad Bwept
from power the party which enforc
ed the machinery for interfering
with elections of the States. The
Force bill had been a potent factor
in the late overwhelming defeat ot"
the Republican party. The laws
which he (Bate) proposed .to have
repealed was the germ or protop
lasm of the Force bill. It was
that bacillous whic:h had poisoned
elections and inoculated them with
fraud. From the supervisor of
electione and the armed deputy
marshal, the step to the army at
the polls was but a short one, The
day had come to bring the Federal
Government back to those duties,
for which it bad been provided
The late elections bad brought in
to power a party pledged to reform
not only liie fiocai but the elective;
not only the tariff, but all the Fed
eral machinery that interfered,
with State affairs, and to wipe out
the absolute power which had no
rightful place in the American
Federal system. That By stem was
a failure, if the States could not
keep pure the very elections which
maintained its organization. The
power of Congress over elections
having been conferred only (in the
language of Alexander Hamiltion)
"to instruct the Union with the
c&re of its own existence," and
there being i.o apprehension for
the permanency of the Union,those
election laws had no constitutional
warrant. They are useless for any
purpose. They did much harm,
ar.d their remaining on the statute
boots was in direct disregard ot
the spirit and purposes of the late
elections, and cf the peace and
quiet of the country,

Liberality in Politics.
The repeated testimonials given
to William F. Harrit', Chairman
of the Democratic National Com

without distinction of party, date a
new era by liberalizing onr pout

illuminated and received the
hearty cheers of the almost end

reception given to Mr. Harnty in
the Academy of Music, the lead
ing active Republicans of the city
were prominent in their cordia
expressions of respect to a success-

notable for the number of Repub

FREMONT LETTER.
Dear Argus : A very . large j
amount of cotton has been brought
to town the past few days.
We were startled at the unexpect
ed death of one of our -citizens on
ast Wednesday: Mr. W. L. Flowers,
who had been in bad health for
some time, expired almost suddenly
at his home in this place. The de
ceased leaves a wife and two chil
dren to mourn the irreparable loss
of a husband and father.
Oa last Monday evening we had
tbe pleasure of attending the crystal
wedding of our esteemed friends
Dr. and Mrs. A. u. Person, at their
residence on Main street. " Nothing
to compare with the brilliancy of the
occasion nas ever occurrea in tne
history of Fremont. The spacious
pwlors ou the right aud left of the
entrance were filled with youth
and beauty oe the town and coun
try, intermingled with some or ma
turer age, adding grace and dignity
to the scene all jubilant and hap-
y. There were a large number of
presents, some valuable on account
of utility and many for their beauty
and artistic design. On entering the
dining room we found a long table
in the form of the Roman cros?
beautifully decorated with evergreens
and flowers, and literally covered
with everything to satisfy the most
ravenous .Epicurean, rtev. w. v.
Rose, pastor of the Methodist
Church, with his most excellent
wife, occupied the head of the table,
and after imploring the blessings of
God upon the sumptuous repast, the
guests, and especially upon the host
and hostess, contiuned by hoping
that they might live to enjoy many
happy anmversanes, reach
the
diamond wedding with eves un-
di named and their natural strength
unabated, and finally bo present to
celebrate the grandest and most
sublime of all occasions, the mar
riage supper of the Lamb.
With many hearty congratulations
and wishes for continued happiness,
we quitted this pleasant home very
much delighted with the pleasures of
the evening. F.

THE PRiSO?ER.
Aman's skull is his lilelODg jail,
Behind its prison bars,
From its eye windows dees the soul
Peep at the earth and stars;
But unlike jails of wood or stone
Its prisoned ever dwells alone.
Though through its front doors perfumed
gales
Are blown from gladness,
And through its back doors music strains
Roll in in waves of madness,
And thonirh ho hear and heed each tone.
The prisoner still must dwelt alone.
Though pat th windows of the jail
Sweep scenes f solemn splendor,
And through the doors float hymns of joy
Or dirges de?p and tender,
The prisoner hears the mirth and moan
But ;n his jail he dwells alone.
ITo lover ever knows the soul
He loves in all its sweetness;
The fullest love, however strong,
Is marred by incompleteness;
STo heart is ever fully known,
The prisoner ever dwells alone.
