Please attend to this while you think of it. legislative Leadership ' In the Sixty-fourth Congress old North Carolina will cut a wide swath. She will supply the leader ship of the majority in both houses, and I doubt if any such condition ever existed before in our polftical history. We are all glad, that the leadership of the Senate is in the hands of Mr. Simmons. In my time, now more than a third of a century. do not recall when the Senate was more capably led tnan during the sittings of the Sixty-third Congress, and I remember Senates of which Sherman, Conkling, Blaine, Edmunds and Aldrich were members and lead ers. When I first knew the Senate Thurman was the Democratic leader, and for assistants such men as Bayard, Beck, Voorhees, Lamar, Ben Hill, McDonald, and men of that ilk.

Glad you threw down the gauntlet to the Commercial Appeal last week Mr. Mooney has a way of getting on both sides of a question. Slow but sure and a standpat like The Com merciai wins the game.

She left a note addressed to a business man declar ing that the fact he had ceased to love her drove her to suicide. ' Ambassador von Bernstorff, of Germany, is in Washington to confer with Secretary Lansing. Austro Hungarians adopted resolutions in New York, Chicago and Boston de nouncing Dumba. sider the Hon. Payne fit for leader; just as Mr. Gallinger is leader of the Republican side of the Senate be cause his party did not think the Hon. Penrose fit for leader. Never theless, if the tariff should again be paramount, Mr. Fordney, of Michi gan, will be the Republican leader the House and Mr. Penrose the Republican leader of the Senate, for Mann and Gallinger are not strong on tariff. The Republican party has pro duced such leaders in the House as Thaddeus Stephens, Robert C. Schenck, James G. Blaine, James A Garfield, Nelson Dingley and Thom as B. Reed all powerful personali ties and very able men. During much of the time old Pig Iron Kelley was the chairman of Ways and Means, but while the negro question was on deck, there were a score of more prominent men on the Repub lican side of Congress than old Pig Iron. Ben Butler completely over shadowed him; so did John A. Lo gan. Even Colfax was more promi nent. In the lofty sense, the greatest leader of the Senate the Republican party ever produced was Fessenden, of Maine. He it was who defeated the impeachment of Andy Johnson and thus save his country from a great calamity. After his death Morrill and Sherman dominated the finance committee until Aldrich got safe in the saddle; but during all the years reconstruction was on the hooks Morton, Sumner, Conkling, Carpenter, Trumbull, Edmunds and Hoar were the real leaders of the Senate. Congressional leadership in the United States is not what parliamen tary leadership is in England. With us every fellow who can deliver the brains is leader, especially if he can throw in the tongue with the brajns. When Hon. John G. Carlisle rose the first time in the House of the Forty- fifth Congress to address the com mittee of the whole, he was un niiuvtu. it was a sirange lace, a new voice; but he had not spdken. a quarter of an hour before Congress recognized him as the first mind then in public life and he remained leader for about twenty years. Had he been gifted with the powerful will and tremendous moral force of Tom Reed, or Grover Cleveland, what leader he would have been! Bat Carlisle was nothing but logic. He had no fire. He hated controversy. He dreaded to make a speech. His real place was Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, for he was not only the greatest lawyer of his day, but as honest as he was clear-headed. The Republicans are boasting of the terrible things Mr. Mann is go ng to do with Mr. Kitchin. We halj see. Claude can beat him to death with a game of eloquence; but the eloquence does not go as far as did when Henry Winter Davis was holy terror in Congress. Congress has got to be upstart enough to de mand food for thought rather than pleasant sounds for the ear. It will not be many moons until Congress will be in session and then let the wool-pulling begin. There is WHO MAY TRY CAUSES. All proceedings in ouster shall be summary and triable as an equitable action, and Criminal, Circuit and Chancery Courts have full Jurisdic tion and power of courts of equity. The defendant has 20 days to an swer, and the petition and answer shall constitute the only pleadings. Upon filing the petition the prose cutors issue subpoenas to witnesses who appear before the- prosecutors as in the taking of depositions in an equity cause. All petitions, unless filed by the State, district, county or city attorneys, must be verified by oath, and defendant's answer must be on oath. Either party may appeal from the Judgment, but such appeal will not vacate the judgment. If, upon final determination in' the Supreme Court, an ouster decree is reversed, the defendant is restored to the office and the salary. Actions against delinquent officials have pre cedence over all civil and criminal cases in the court below, and appeals have precedence over all cases in the Supreme Court. Defendants, pending final adjudi cation of ouster proceedings against them, cannot be susDended from of fice uatil given five days in which to appear before the court in which proceedings are pending. Writ of ouster issued upon final hearing disqualifies the officer ousted from holding office again for a pexiod of 1ft years. Police Pickups. Chief Noah and Mayor Reynolds made a hurry-up call to Baptistville Monday night, some of the colored denizens of that locality having spread broadcast the S. O. S. signal. Aubrey Mayfield, armed with a big sharp knife, had whittled upon the body of Eulisa Reeves to his heart's content. Officers found Reeves near. ly dead and also found that Mayfleld had departed for parts unknown. But the Mayor "struck a trail" and found his man at Brevard's Crossing en route to Hickman. A pretty bad affair and Judge Jones will look in to the merits and demerits next week. Mayfield was fined $100. The case against Albert McCamp- bell, Jr.,. was continued, McCamp- bell's fighting partner not being able to appear in court. He is entertain ing a number of large sore places located on the uppermost part of his bushy head made by a big hickory billiard cue in the hands of Mc- Campbell. They will fight; the.
