WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13, 1890.
The Baldwin District Fair. The Board of Directors of the Baldwin District Fair Association have not been in attentive to tbe necessary work and prepara tion for tbe usual yearly exhibit. So far as preparation could be accomplished in ad vance, they bave kept pace with the op portunities, and as the time approaches all things will be in readiness for an expo sition as full of interest as it will be possi ble to attach to the occasion. In the inter est of live-stock, if not in others, our re sources and opportunities, as we have made them available in the past, and will con tinue to do in the future, place this large central Asscciation in the front rank. If difficulties or obstacles should seemingly appear to lesson tbe usual interest, they should be banished from thought, and all should move forward in persistent effort for the cause. The Fair is an illustration and an annual recurring testimonial of onr genuine, solid progress. Moving on the lines of other material development and prosperity should not for a moment weaken our strength for this favorite and profitable interest. That success should rather ani mate us to appreciate more highly the solid advantages we possess in soil production, in the rearing of live-stock, and in all tbe minor depart ments of field and garden and orchard oulture. The industiies of the furnace, the rolling-mill, the anvil, the loom, the workshop, and the factories of all kinds tions are the associates of progressive agri culture without which our mutual ar-d stable prosperity will not achieve the re sults which our resources stand ready in fullness to achieve. Staunton, ever ready and generous, will be in the van again with liberal special premiums, in trades' display, and in con tributions of every kind to give interest to the occasion. In the meeting of the Directory last week, Mr. Jno. W. Tood, late President for four years of tbe Association, proposed that on the third day of tbe exhibit, whicb is always the day when the crowd is largest, that Senator Carlisle, of Kentucky, and Representative McKinley, of Ohio, repre senting the two sides on tbat question of political economy, shall discuss the tariff for the information of the people. Tbis proposition is not introducing parti- Ban feeling into our social or industrial progress. The tariff question, above ail others, is the absorbing one tbat comes home to the most vital interests of tbe faimer and tbe laboring man. Tbe tariff is not really and should not be esteemed a party question. It is above all party move ments, because, through its workings, the trade of tbis country with foreign countries is regulated, and it affects, materially and directly, the industrial and commercial affairs of our people. We repeat, the question is not partisan, but one of economy coming home to every man co matter what may be his views and tho influences cl gendered by partisan feelings wbich should not control in the general administration oi government. This view is now enlarging on long lines in all the agricultural as well as manufacturing States, and the able dis cussion of tbis question by the two men holding opposite views who are above all others the acknowledged leaders on the national arena would be of surpassing interest to the people. Our able and popular Representative, Hon. Henry St. Geo. Tucker, will, on be half of tbe Fair Association, present the invitation to the distinguished gentlemen, and, if possible, will induce them to accept the invitation cordially tendered them. Along the Line. There were appointments for seven meetings of the people commencing Thurs day and closing Saturday of last week along the proposed route for the extension of the Cumberland Valley Railroad through Augusta county. Official reports from several of them have been received and ap pear in this issue of the Spectator. Thej were all well attended and tbe people along the line express great earnestness in the movement and to that end will con tinue to present the advantages of the route and not tire till a conclusion ono way or the other is reached. Augusta and Rockbridge -re thoroughly aroused and working in full concert. The convention to be held in Staunton the 17th of September will be largely at tended. The committees appointed at the meetings are the delegates, acd of the nine meetings held in the two counties from ten to fifteen committeemen were appointed at each, chosen from those who signified tbeir purpose to continue tbeir efforts unceasing ly for the accomplishment of the object- There will doubtless be representatives of other counties present at the same time. It will be well for all tbe committees and others interested in this movement to pro ceed as Mr. Chichester, Chairman of the Parnassus Committee, has mapped out fot the first work of his delegation. He has subdivided the fifteen members into sub committees for special work. Tbey will collect vespectively statistics of crops, garden and dairy products, live stock, &o. In addition to representations of tbe yield of their cultured lands, the resources ol forests for lumber and specimens of all valuable ores will be brought out, ac companied by written information as far as it can be furnished. The convention will compile from authentic information a report of the valu ables along the whole line so far as the people interested may participate in its proceedings, and thus, in condensed and formal shape, present the matter to tbe railroad authorities. 1 a . Progress in tbe Talley. The "Immigration and Industrial Im provement Association" whie_ has its headquarters at Middletown, Frederick county, Va, will bold its third annual mass-meeting at Middletown September 3rd, -th and sth, 1800. These meetings are attended by parties interested frcm several adjoining States Id addition to the large gathering that Vir ginia contributes. At former sessions as many i.s ten thousand persons were pres ent. The occasion is made attractive by publio addresses upon industrial interests, commerce, <_c, entirely free of party bias or sentiment. A fine band of music will be in attendance, and there will be a military display. Many of the Improvement and Develop ment (.'■hi.panics will be represented. Tbe Staunton Development Company, Mr. M. Erskine Miller, tbe President, informs us, will bave a handsome tent on the grounds with a representative and a full supp'y of iterature respecting tbe progress at Staun to i. It will be a highly interesting occr aion and largely attended. —STAUNTON SPECTATOR AND GENERAL ADVERTISER.— Senator Wilson, of lowa, says Agriculture is not Suffering. In the U. S. Sanate on Tuesday, the 4th inst., Mr. Wilson, of lowa, argued to show that agriculture is not really suffering, and read a long paper to prove that the farmers are very well off, indeed, if they only knew it. "The farming depression," he said, "was not the result of actual facts, but of the lies told about it." As the Baltimore Sun suggests, tbe far mers of the country ought to read this and feel prosperous and happy. They are not suffering from any real depression, Mr. Wilson says, but only from too much im agination. Some brilliant democratic rom ancers have been telling them that tbeir farms were heavily mortgaged; tbat their orops have not been paying expenses; that they sell tbeir products by the rules of free trade and buy what they need under the principles of protection, and that they have been steadily getting poorer every year, wbile the manufacturers have been getting richer, but all this is absurd, Mr. Wilson says. They are just as prosperous as they ever were; in fact, they sue more so. Tbe farmer's only troubles are imaginary, and all that is necessary for him to do is not to believe any more lies about agricultural de pression, but to open his eyes to the bless ings which the protective tariff has beeu heaping up all around him. Iv a word, tho gullible farmer, who all this time has been under the impression that he was getting poorer, bas been growing wealthy, and when he wakes up this morning he will tnd, if he reads the congressional proceed ings, that all his mortgages are cleared off, or rather never existed, tbat he gets im mensely remunerative prioes for his grain and farm products, that he has a big bank account to his credit, and tbat he can buy anything he wants in this oountry for half the price at which tbe same articles are selling in Europe. All this is suggestive of a Barmeoidefeast, in which people are invited to got fat on wind, but tben Mr. Wilson is a TJ. S. Senator, and, of course,lie ought to know more about the subject than the farmers themselves. Therefore let our farming friends cheer up and be exceeding ly jolly. Their troubles, according to Mr. Wilson, are only fictitious, and if they look at the situation from the right stand point they will be bothered not by any feara of poverty, but by the problem of bow to disposo of the great wealth which they have been so rapidly accumulating while they were laboring under the belief that they were getting poorer every day. The imagination is a great thing, especially in a tariff debate when there are no other ar guments handy. But when the farmers of lowa speak next at tbe polls Senator Wil son will probably not "imagine,"but know that something heavy bas struck him. Wm. Kemmler Executed by Electricity. In accordance with the law of the State of New York, Wm. Kemmler was executed by electricity—the first victim of that mode —io the prison at Auburn between C and 7 o'clock*last Wednesday morning for the murder, on tbe 29th of March, 1889, of Til lie Siegler, his mistress. After the applica tion of electricity for 17 seconds, he was thought to be dead, and the curmot was cut off; but after an interval of little less than two m-iuits respiration returned and the breast began to heave with long, deep respi rations, when the electricity was again ap plied and was continued for a minute, when life was extinct. The result of this first experiment of this mode of execution will be to convince the public that it is no im provement on that of hanging. In spite ol the fact that the law of New York forbids tbe papers from publishing ihe details of such executions, the daily papers have filled whole pages giving tbe fullest and most minute accounts of the sickening details. The following is an ex tract from tbe law:— "No account of the details of any such execution beyond the statement of the fact that convict was on the day in question duly executed according to law at the pris on shall be published in any newspaper. Any person who shall violate or omit to comply with any provision of tbis section shall ba guilty of a misdemeanor." The mode we would advise would be the administration of chloroform wbich would be not only certain In its effects, but would be pleasant to tbe victim, and it could be easily and economically done without the blood-shedding of the guillotine on the re volting scenes attending the execution by hanging or tbe application of electricity. Let" the executions be effected by chloro form and humanity will cease to revolt al capital punishment. Sl—♦— ♦ Dankard's Annnal A Hagerstown special to tbe Baltimore Sun says that the committee appointed at the last annual meeting of the German Baptists, or Bunkards, ofthe United States, to select a place for'the next meeting, met in the German Baptist Churoh in Hagers town last Friday aod decided to hold the meeting on the grounds south of the semi nary in Hagerstown. The time fixed for the meeting is Whitsuntide, or tbe 17th of May, 1891, but an effort will be made to have tbe meeting two weeks later, so that they can get the use of tbe seminary build ings, and Brother David Long was appoint ed to correspond with the proper authorities with reference to changing the date. The following executive committee, with power to appoint other committees and to arrange for the meeting, was elected: A. B. Bvrn hert, W. 3. Keichord, D. F. Stouffer, Nich olas Martin and David Long. These annual meetings are largely attended by German Baptists from all parts of the country, and at former meetings tbe attendance has been estimated at times as high as 20,000. One of the reasons for selecting for Hagerstown was its excellent railroad facilities. Death of an Old German Baptist Bishop.—John P. Ebersole, a bishop of the German Baptist (Dunkard) Church, was strioken with paralysis July 23, render ing him blind and speechless to the time oi bis death, wbich occurred at his home, near West Independence, Ohio, Monday night of last week. He was eighty-four years of age and had been iv the ministry for forty six years, during wbich time he had travel ed large'.y in the interest of bis chosen church, beoomi-g widely known and uni versally loved.

When found he had thirty-3ix bullet holes in his body. Republican Postmaster Jailed.—H. C. Lachney, postmaster at Clay Court house acd prosecuting attorney of Clay oounty, was lodged in jail at Clarksburg, W. Va, on the 7ih inst, charged with making improper use of the mails and violating the letters of political opponents. Lachney was one of the most active Re publican politicians of the Third district. —— ♦ ♦ * Confessing the Truth.—Senator Aid rich, of tbe finance committee, said Friday in so many words, when Senator Butler was objecting to an increase of tbe duty on cotton ties from 35 j. er cent, to 103 per cent., that the present tariff bill was "not by any means for tbe purpose of reducing taxation." In saying this he only made an official confession, of course, of what every body already knew. Senator Hoar's proposition to amend the rules of the Senate so as to limit debate further complicates the situation in Con gress and reopens the floodgates of specu lation as to tbe probable fate of the force bill. Republican Senators wbo were spok en to on tbe subject Saturday declined to say whether the Massachusettes Sanator was acting under instructions from the cau cus committee or whether it was an inde pendent movement on his part. .—♦— . , . Robbery of Southern Planters.— The Bslt. Sun says that one of the most re markable illustrations of tbe subserviency ofthe majority in Congress to tbe greedy high tariff interests was brought out by Senator Butler Friday by probing tbe com mittee on finance in the matter of ootton ties. He succeeded in showing that an in crease in the duty on cotton ties, which are iron bands for baling cotton, fiom 35 to 103 per cent., had been made without even a suggestion from the manufacturers who would be benefited. In other words, it is robbery of the Southern planter gratuitous ly proposed by the republican members of tbe Senate finance committee in the interest of their fat-frying tariff allies. Senator Zeb Yance, of North Carolina, on the Tariff. When the tariff was taken up in the Senate last Saturday, the 9th inst., the question was on Mr. Butler's amendment to reduce the duty on cotton ties to 35 per cent, ad valorem. Mr. Yance made an amusing speech in ridicule of tbe olaim tbat the farmer de rived any benefit from the tariff. The manufacturer of woolen goods, be said, who got_ 75 per cent, protection on his •roods, said to the farmer: "If you give me 75 per cent, protection on my woolen goods against English and Frenoh manufacturers, 1 will give yon 5 cents per bushel pro tection on your wheat acd 10 cents per bushel protection on your corn against England," tbat does cot grow a bushel of corn and does not grow one-fifth of the wheat tbat her people eat. The one got cash and the other promises. The cash was "the short run" and the promises were "the long run." Whenever the manufac turer got tired of reaping the benefit of the bargain en bis side be agreed to let tbe farmer get his "innings." So far the manufacturer bad proved remarkably long winded. He had not shown the slightest evidence of being tired. Tbe nature of the bargain between tbe farmer and the manu facturer was well illustrated by tbe offer of one urchin to another, "Jim, if you give me a bite of your big red apple I will show you my sore toe." [Laughter.] If Sena tors insisted on tripling the existing tax on cotton ties, might not (he asked), when some of tbem were on the hustings talking about protection to American labor, some man in tbe audience say, with great pro piiety, "Tbat is a lie. You know that you are not for protecting all American labor; for the seven million bales of cotton are oppressed, when prepared in the foreign market, by a tax three times higher than that imposed npon many other articles."— He confessed that he bated to see a new industry rise in this country, because it was sure to be a pauper saddled on tbe treasury. Mr. Hoar inquired whether that feeling applied to industries already existing. Mr. Yance replied that it did not. He hoped to see, before he died, American manufacturers flourish just as American agriculturists flourished. "Prophets and Kings desired It. long, Bet died without the sight." He hoped to see American manufacturers flourish by tbe sweat of tbeir brows and by their own honest industry instead of by tbe sweat of the brows of his people, and of their honest industry. Every time tbat a new mine was discovered, or a new in dustry established, it was immediately fastened upon the publio treasury. And now, for fear lest there might come "a King who knew not Joseph"—in other words a Democratic majority whicb did know the people—it had been thought necessary to provide by the last will and testament of a Republican Congress for such paupers as might hereafter be born in lawful wedlock to tbat community or in un lawful wedlock either. So there was to be an opening made for some manufacturer of cotton ties to be established, and it was said to be the duty of Senators, not to pro vide for tbe infant when it came, bnt to provide for it before it came. Who (he asked) was to be the recipient of the taxa tion on cotton ties before tbat infant was born and baptised? Tbere was no way (be declared) in which the proposed increase of duty on cotton ties could be looked at that was defensible—not a sin %le, . solitary one. The most deserving (because the most use ful in a commercial point of view) of all the agricultural products of the United States was taxed to death in all the pro cesses of its growth and production, and was then taxed (a farewell shot) as tbe bolt left the gin honse 103 per cent on tbe ties that enveloped it, and this not for tbe bene fit of the American manufacturers of cot ton ties (for there were none) and not for the benefit of tbe treasury (for the bill was one to reduce revenue) but out of pure "cussedcess" and because the Republican party bad got so used to taxing things that they could not stop, Aud yet braids, plaits and laces for making bats were to be placed on tbe free list. Mr. Vance said be oould see tbe coming storm, and be warned his Republican friends to get under shelter while they cculd. He warned them to take off the duty ou cotton ties, to reduce the duties on the iron schedule, to reduce the duties on the woolen schedule, and to give the farmer a chauce that, when he shipped his produce abroad, be could obtain a reasonable price for it. Tbe farmer bad acted as tbe scapegoat long enough. He had been the ultimate payee and the com mon vouchee in tbo protective system wbich bad enabled tbe manufacturers to make their profits. Republican Senators had better (he said) revise tbe tariff them selves and revise it justly. If they did not it would be like tbe waters tbat accumulate above tbe dam. Instead of flowing over in quantities sufficient to carry off the excess without damage, tbey might gather strength and height until they swept away the whole dam, and everything standing within its reach below. It was time tbat something was done to equalize the bur dens of the people and to shift taxation so that all should have a part, and all should be exempt alike. Mr. Daniel made an able speech in oppo sition to the bill. ss— m*. s» Harbison and Clarkson want the Election Bill Passed.—The Washington correspondent of the Alex. Oazetle, under date of the 7th instant, says:— "President Harrison in tbe course of a conversation with a republican congressman tbis morning expressed bis ardent hope that the Force bill would be passed before tbe close of the session and said every republi can member of Congress should do his ut most to bave it passed, for tbe safety and welfare of tbe party. Mr. Clarkson, who still continues to draw tbe salary of Assist ant Postmaster General, says be, Clarkson, will take no part iv next fall's campaign unless the Force bill be passed. Clarkson is a member of the national republican com mittee, and if the republican Senators who are opposed to the bill, prevent its passage and Clarkson shall do as he threatens, the election of 1890 will certainly bs fairer than that of 1888." —.—ss. . The Natural Bridge not sold.—Col onel H. C. Parsons, the owner of the Na tural Bridge in Virginia, denies the report tbat be has disposed of that property. "I have not sold the bridge or the original tract," he says. "One thousand acres on the east side of Cedar oreek have been sold to a Boston syndicate, and tbey have also an option on 1,000 acres on the west side of the creek. The sale covers all the noted buildings, tbe stores, livery stables, stage line, &o. Tbe bridge and its approaches, with the original tract, granted by George II to his well-beloved and loyal subject, Thomas Jefferson, in 1774, are placed in trust for 100 years for the benefit of my family. Tbe strictest reservations are made that my purposes acd intentions regarding the maintenance of a natural park shall be carried out." In his speech on tbe tariff bill in tbe Sen ate Thursday, Mr. Vest alluded to tbe tact that sugar, rice and cotton, the three prod ucts in which the negroes of the conntry have the most interest, were legislated against in the bill. But that, he said, "was easily accounted for by the faot that tbe ne groes contributed nothing but their vote to the republican party." Of all tbe people in tbe country those most pillaged by the tariff are the negioes. It protects nothing that they make and does not add one oent to tbe wages tbey receive, but it does add 50 per cent, to the price of almost every thing they have to buy. But, if it added twice as much, they are either so prejudiced or so densely blind to tbeir own interests, tbat they would continue to vote the repub lican ticket as regularly as the elections oome.— Alex.

Tucker.—All Virgin ians no doub* felt proud wbo read the arti cle published by ns last week copied from the N. Y. Nation. That Mr. Tucker was a young man of talent, energy, sound political principles and unswerving integrity, we all knew. Tbat he would make a representative of whom in time we sbould be proud we all felt, but that like Minerva he should step full panoplied into the arena and take np the colors of constitutional liberty where his illustrious father had laid them down was a surprise to all but those who had watched his conrse for years and witnessed his training in the school of constitutional law and knew how he had studied thia question and how deligenfly he had scann ed the writings, official and collateral;of tha fathers. His renomination by acclamation, at Am herst C. 11. is but an expression of the just satisfaction his constituent j feel in having a representative wbo knows tbeir rights and knowing dare" maintain tbat the in famous Force bill is, as it bas so justly and tersely been termed by one sage in wisdom, matured in years and rich in experience of governmental affair, "not revolutionary but revolution." Tbat this infamous meas ure has not yet passed the Senate and seems doomed to fall still born, is due in no little measure to tbs sober second thought of tho business men ofthe conntry,biought abont by the masterly presentation made by Mr. Tucker of the monstrosities of this meas ure. Clifton Forge Mews. Tbe following items are condensed from the Clifton Forge and Iron-Gate Review : James T. Boswell, son of tbe late L.

Well, this is about tbe plan tbe farmers have devised to get rich by the sub-treasury scheme. The idea ia about this: To raise money by taxation from them selves, and put it in the treasury. Then they will borrow it from the treasury at two per cent. A scandalously low interest, but what a fool Paul is not to keep it in bis own pocket instead of putting it in a hole and then b irrowin. it out at two per cent. —Charlottesville Chronicle. Bailroad Strike. For several days there haa been a strike of the Knights of Labor on the New York Central Railroad. A despatch from New York city dated the 11th says:— "Just after midnight all tbe locomotive firemen and members of tbe Brotherhood Locomotive Firemen on the Hudson river division of tbe New York Central joined the striking Knights of Labor who went ont Friday night. This defeotion of the firemen will, it is feared, completely blook the travel over the New York Central be tween this city and Albany, as the Brother hood of Locomotive Engineers are pledged not to run with any firemen except those belonging to the Brotherhood of Locomo tive Firemen. It has been definitely de eidad to strike on the Lake Bhore, Michi gan Central and Michigan Southern to-day. It is determined to tie np the main line of the Central all the way from New York to Chicago." A Chicago despatch of the same date says:— "The firemen on the Yanderbilt lines run ning into Chicago bad not been called out at midnight, bnt a spirit of uneasiness per vades the ranks of all the employees of the Lake Shore and Michigan Central. Twen ty fireman on the Central bave gone out, and the engineers say they will pnll no train out with green firemen aa helpers." A despatoh from Scran ton, Pa., of same date, says:— "General Master Workman Powderly, iv an interview last night, said he had re ceived no word whatever from the seat of the strike. He feels certain that the Broth erhood of Locomotive Engineers will cast its fortunes with the Knights of Labor, if such actiou'is deemed necessary." A despatch from New York city of the same date says:— "The officials of the New York Central acd Hudson River Railroad Company an nounce that there is now no interruption lo the passenger traffic on the lines of the New York Central, all through passenger trains being run on regular schedule time. Yice-Prosident Webb said at nine o'clock in the evening that the strike, so far as the New York Central railroad was concerned, was at an end. The entire passenger and freight service will be resumed tomorrow morning, and all trains will leave on sched ule time. All freight yards will be open for the reception of western freight." Death op Cardinal Newman.—Cardi nal Newman, who died is England Mon day in his 90th yea', was, says tbe Balti more Sun, an ecclesiastic and scholar of world-wido repntation, and a man whose sweetness and benignity of character caused him to be admired and esteemed by thou sands of intelligent men and women out side the fold of his ohurcb. Originally a clergyman of the Chnroh of England, he became one of tbe leaders of the famous Oxford or Tractarian movement inaugu rated by the religious poet, Keble, and himself began the publication ot tbe series of "Tracts for the "Times" in advocacy of what were regarded as ultra "High Church" principles. In the fall cf 1845 be was received into the Roman Catholio Church and took orders at Rome. Since then he has been engaged in literary and religious work in England, and, although be was for years an active controversialist, he bas exhibited throughout his career so much purity acd benignity of character that be has commanded universal respect and affectionate regard by many who dif fered with him in religious opinion. Like his friend Keble, be was the author of re ligious poetry wbich has a wide circulation, among his veises being tbe beautiful hymn, "Lead, Kindly Light," which is one of tbe gems of tbe Episcopal Hymnal. .—.»—.

For a great many years doctors pronounced it a local disease, and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly failing to cure witb local treatment,pronounced it incurable. Science bas proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease and therefore requires a constitu tional treatment. Hail's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J.

Qgmettt. CONGRESS. In the United States Senate, Tuesday, Aug. sth, the consideration of the tasiff bill was continued. Speeches were made by Senators Berry, Wilson, of lowa, Mr. Gor man and others. Mr. Wilson endeavored to show that "the farming depression was not tbe result of actual facts, but of the lies told about il." In the House there was a political discus sion of the appropriation for the Kittery navy-yard. In the United States Senate, Wednesday, Mr. Gorman made a speech in favor of the .reduction of tho duties on iron ore, but the proposition was defeated. In the House the conference report on the original package bill was presented and adopted. Tbe report leaves tbe bill exact ly aa it passed the Senate. In the Senate Thursday, the considera tion of the tariff bill Was continued. Tbe Senate substitute for the federal elec tion bill was reported to the Senate Thurs day. It omits some of the most objection able featnres of the Lodge bill. The river and harbor bill has been postponed in tbe hope of curtailing democratic opposition to the tariff bill. In the House the general deficiency bill was under consideration. Tbe United States Senate Friday, passed Mr. Plumb's concurrent resolution express ing the desire of Congress for the removal of Gen. Grant's remains to Arlington Ceme tery. The conference report on the fortifi cation bill was agreed to, and that on the sundry civil bill, but a further conference was ordered ou the irrigation items. The tariff bill was discussed, but no vote taken on any items. Tbe House passed the general deficiency bill. A resolution was offered looking to limiting debate to two hours on the Senate amendments to tlie Indian appropriation bill, but no quorum voted, and the House took a recess until evening. In the United States Senate Saturday, Mr. Hoar offered a resolution to limit de bate, which was referred to the oommittee on rules. The discission of the tariff bill was tben continued, tbe proposition to re duce the duty on cotton ties being defeated. In the House Mr. Enleo asked as a ques tion of privilege whether the Speaker had the right to instruct the doorkeeper to pre vent members from going out during a call of the House. The questioa was referred to the judiciary committee. The House non-concurred in the Senate amendments to tbe Indian appropriation bill. .—as.—sj The democrats of North Carolina will do a great wrong to their party and their state if they permit Senator Vance to be sacrificed as a peace-offering to tbe farmers' alliance. Oo several occasions we bave differed from Benator Vance and have taken exception to his course, but we have never failed to recognize that in whatever he said and did he was honest and sincere. The cause of tbe alliance's wrath against tbe senator is his refusal to promote and vote for the ridi culous sub-treasury bill, more aptly termed a government pawn-broker shop bill. It embraces an unconstitutional scheme, and would carry paternalism to the extreme of absurdity. Senator Vance never was seen in abetter light than when he told tbe farmers of North Carolina that he oould not urge a measure of the disastrous effects of which he felt sure, and concerning the un constitutionality of which he did not enter tain the least doubt. The farmers of North Carolina will make a monumental mistake if tbey send an experienced and conscientious legislator like Yance to the rear and take up some new prophet who may be as ready to make promises as to break tbem.—ln dex-Appeal. A Present Effect of the Fobce Bill. —In view of the passage through the House of the iniquitous force bill, Hon. L. J. Moore, a prominent North Carolinian, comes out from among tbe Republicans with whom he has affiliated for years, and oasts in his lot with the Democracy, say ing, among other things: "I regard the South as a part of the American Union, and when I see a party in all its legislation ignoring that fact and passing special laws, oppressive and humiliating in their oharao ter, affecting us as a section, then, in my opinion, it is the duty of every man to the manner born to resist such legislation with all bis power." If th-bayonet bill becomes a law there will be many other patrioticJßspublioans, doubles, to follow the example of Mr. in word and in deed, though how ra oan have been any patriotic white Re pel ncans in the South thus far we confess is }j;i_.,ing.— -Rich.

"Five minutes for refreshments at the Brook of Kedron," "Dinner in the Valley of Jehoshaphat," "Breakfast at Nazareth, "Tiokets good for either Mount Zion or Mount Moriah." We presume these will soon be added to the cries now familiar to pilgrims over the sea. However, we shall in time be accustomed to it, and the railroad will no more detract from tbe feeling of reverence with wbich we surround the Holy Land than from the memories that belong lo the poetry and traditions of Egypt, Rome and the Isles of Greece.— N.

Baker, of Norton, Kansas, says the four States of Kansas, Nebraska, lowa and Missouri are literally burned ont by the dronth. Tbe condition of affairs is almost inconceivable, and the first rain for mauy days fell last week. Mr. Baker has been superintendent of schools in his county for some time past, but says the condition of crops ia such that people are in danger of losing their farms, and will be unable to pay anything for schools next year. Wages are poor, and the prospect for improvement seems to be desperate.— Rockingham Register. . ss, . Tbe high tariff, which, its supporters say, creates and enlarges the home market, has, during ths twenty-nine years it has been in operation, according to so pro nonnoed a republican as Senator Blair of New Hampshire, instead of oreating and enlarging the business of making iron im plements in New England, almost entirely destroyed that business, by so increasing the price of raw material tbat it could not be carried on profitably. Indeed the high tariff has affected some of the industries of New England so injuriously that Mr. Blair says he is io doubt as to whether it is not his duty to vote to make both ooal and iron free, and even "to go still further in the direction of free trade."'— Alexandria Gazette.
