Raleigh, IST. C, Fob. 18.?The scene In
the House yesterday during the pas?
sage ot the suffrage amendment bill,
will not soon be forgotten. The enthu?
siasm of the Democrats was great. A
leading negru who was seen .soon af?
terwards said he did not deplore the
passage of the bill, and that he be?
lieved the people would by a large ma?
jority ratify the amendment at the
polls on the first Thursday in next Au?
gust, when it will be voted on. He al?
so said he thought it would be a pow?
erful stimulus to education.
The election law continues to give
the Democratic caucus some trouble,
Jt will probably ho out of the way,
however, during the next five days.
"JIM CHOW CAR" DILL.
The "Jim Crow Car"' bill is talked
about daily, and McLean, of Harnett,
nnd some other Democrats are clam?
orous to dispose of It. It id said there
In more opposition to It in the Senate
than in the House.
The Stevens anti-trust bill wont
through the House under pressure, It
Is held up In the Senate, in order to
give business men another hearing up?
on It. H Is said Senator Osborno will
fight it. There was some bitter oppo?
sition to it In the House.
The Cralg bill, requiring the "domes?
tication" of foreign corporations do?
ing business in this State, does not tlx
any license-fee. At first $1,000 was
named, nnd then ?r>no. The desire ap?
pears to be simply to get the corpora
tions to domesticate themselves as
quickly as possible, and as cheaply. The
Idea la not to make money, hut to
compel them to surrender any and all
right to appeal to the Federal courts.
A CLAIM FOR INTEREST.
' In 1871-3 Josiah Turner was public
printer. In 1805 the State paid him
$4,000 duo by reason of a difference in
measurement of printed matter. Rut
It did not allow him Interest. To-day
the Committees on Claims reported fa?
vorably a bill to pay him Interest,
amounting to about $5,000. Turner is
here. He is 80 years old, and does not
appear over 60.
SUPERINTENDENT DAY'S RESIG?
NATION.
The resignation of W. II. Day as pen?
itentiary superintendent takes effect
next Monday. It simplifies the situa?
tion. He has yet a suit on hand to see
whether he Is really entitled to the of?
fice. The management of the peniten?
tiary will bo in the hands of the execu?
tive board, as It was twenty years ago,
Day had made a promise to Senator
Glenn that he would abide by the deci?
sion of the Democratic caucus.
_SCHOOL HOOK FIGHT.
The school book fight seems to he not
yet ended. East night the Committee
on Education decided that they would
let the present system stand If the
booksellers would cut the prices ten per
cent. It appears that not nil would
agree to do thta. One (Irin agreed to cut
thirty per cent., nnd one twenty per
cent. If given the whole contract, and
also to replace with new books all the
tdd ones now in use or on the book?
sellers' shelves in this State. Tin- !>.>.,k
tight was never more, bitter than it is
this yenr.
INSURANC B LEG I PLAT I f ?.\*.
The Insurance bill was yesterday af?
ternoon finally agreed on. ami insur?
ance men say it satisfies all of them
save those who represent assessment
companies, ns a section ->f it requires!
that the poliolos in such couipauiefl
must plainly stute on their face that
they arc on the assessment ]d.in. The
rate of taxation is; two per cent, on
gross receipts. H was three per cent,
when the bill was introduced, hut the
Finance Commlttco consented t-> a re?
duction to two. which is the old figure.
The wording of the bdl makes It plain
that there will be a commissioner of
insurance. It does not appear possible
now that the Legislature can ndjourn
before March 1st.
FRANCHISE AMENDMENT
ADOPTED.
The legislative event to-day was the
discussion ami passage of the hill to
amend the Constitution by limiting ne?
gro suffrage. The popular Interest was
as great as it was when the House i in
sldcred the bill yesterday. Senator
Goodman, Republican. offered an
amendment, which was lost by n \ ??? of
ayes 6, noes 42, providing that should
the voters of the State ratify the < in?
stitutional amendment nt the polls then
nil persons who are thereby disfran?
chised shall be exempted from ail civil
and military duties and from a poll t.uc.
Fuller, the only negro Senat >r, made
the leading speech against l he c nstl
tutional amendment, declaring that
conditions In North Carolina in no wise
resemble those in South Carolina and
Louisiana; that Iho negro Is rtindo the
object of attack; the Innocent \i m ot
censure, when ho is mi r ly the tool in
the hands of white men. Yet all the
latteir aro to vide. He closed with a
glowing eulogy of the Anglo h.ixihi
race.
Senator Campbell, Republican, said If
the great Z. B. Vance were allvi he
would oppose this measure.
Senators cooley and Fields, Demo?
crats, saiil they thought it unwise at
this time to submit the amendment to
the people, but voted aye, taking the
view that it was liest for the Si.it.'. |
Senator Qlenn, who made the chief
?pcech In support of the bill, was given 1
an ovation ami made an Impassioned
speech, saying he had never
been so proud of a vote. He eon. in r i
by saying he had come here to unfurl
the banner of the white race over the
capitol.
Senator Mclnttrc said he was sure the
abstract principle of disfrnnchiscment
was wrong, but he knew the negro and
also knew the evils of the last "red
shirt" campaign, and so would supp irt
the measure.
Harris. Populist, of Northampton,
voted with tin- Democrats ami was ap?
plauded wildly.
Only thirty votes were necessary to
secure the passage of the am mini lit.
The amendment was oi l- red <>iir 1
for ratification, and will bo ratifl l
Monday.
_AC. AIXST llKPri'IATioX.
There was a debate in the nnte on
a bill to force ?ladlson county to pay
bonds: it seeks to repudiate, and thero
were some strong sp eches against re?
pudiation.
The House passed n bill lo give the
State printing to the lowest responsible
bidder in North Carolina, and also ti Ii
lo establish the Bureau of Lab >r and
Printing, with a Commissioner of Labor
and an assistant, thO later Lo be a
practical printer.

SICK FOR TEN YEARS
Now
Akron, Ohio, Nov. 8.
Since I was sixteen 1 have had
Irregular menstrual periods. It
went from bad to worse after I
married, and in ten years I was a
perfect wreck. Morphine injections
were the only relief I could get.
When almost in despair I heard <>f
Wineol Cardui. I have used it with
a little Black-Draught and am now
perfectly well.
Airs. W. SANDFIRSON.
A woman who has suffered {cn years with Irregular
menstruation, leucorrhoca, falling of the womb or any other
"female trouble" has simply endured a living death. No pen
can express the joy and gladness that fills her breast when she
has finally drawn herself away from the clutches of these dis?
eases. No woman should ever permit herself to get into such
a distressing condition. The trouble should be stamped out
at the start If mothers will give young girls a little Wine
of Cardui as they approach puberty, after-life will he practically
free from danger. The organs of generation will be strong and
well?fully prepared for wifehood and motherhood. Even
up to the Change of Life
there is not likely to be any
serious visitation of sickness.
When that period arrives,
Wine of Cardui will again be
needed to assist Nature in
making the radical change. A few doses of Wine of Cardui
at the" right time make a great difference in a woman's life.
