Rates very moderateSpecial Kates on Long Oontraets EDENTON, June 16tb, 1893. Bank failures continue to occur throughout the countrj In Chicago the pressure has been especially great. There will be nine contests for seats in the Fifty-third Congress in the House. One from North Caro lina -Williams vs Settle. Hurrah for the old North State. Our hearts swell with pride when we learn that North ,Carolina is so excel lently represented at the big Chicago show in its numerous exhibits. It compares well with others. If bo much could be done with such limited means could not a grander exhibit have been achieved with even $50. 000? Some of the States had $100,000 or more. Ex. Here is the opinion of Secretary of Agriculture Morton on the mone tary question : 'I am against the Sherman act, which compels the pur chase of silver to the amount of 4,500 000 ounces per month, and also op posed to free coinage of the same silver at tin rate of $1.29 per ounce when it sells on the world's markets at 84 cents an ounce. The money fallacies preached by the Populists from the Ocala platform would if embodied in legislation, destroy our common country; therefore, I am op posed to all of their vagaries." The first quarter of the present year showed that there was a decrease of foreign immigrants by 40,074. But in May there were 75,000 arrivals against the 170,542 for the first three months. It was an increase of 7,000 over May 1892 Italians are coming in heavily. England, Ireland and Scotland sent to us a god!y quota. Theie are fewer immigrants from Russia, Hungary and Poland than in 1892, which it is agreeable to know. They constitute a very undesirable proportion of peasantry who come with turbulence and diseases and fnl38 ideas of freedom and our govern ment. Let every man do his duty. This is the ago when liberal and public spirited men come to the iront The time used to be when fossiles answer ed about as well as anything else.'jbut that time has passed. What we want js men live men progressive men public spirited men men who are willing to take some chances if need be, to promote the interest of their community. It has been said that 'dead men never tell tales ' and it is equally true that dead men in a bust ness point of view, are absolutely worthless. They don't count for any . thing. They are afraid to risk a dol lar unless they see thsy are to get two dollars in return, and even then, they prefer some one else to take the risk, and let them reap the benefits. There is scaroely a community in which suoh men cannot be found. Warrenton Record.

HISTORIC EDENTON. We are unable to account for the lack of patriotism, public spirit and pride of North Carolinians. The career of other men of sister State, whose memories have been honored by sculptured bronze or, granite shaft, does not excel 1 the worthy deeds and achievements of our own. Nor are the records and events chronicled, more important and interesting than those, which if written, would place our State in the fore-front of American history. Therefore it is with especial inter est that we can point with admirable regard and appreciation to the recent articles contributed by our townsman,' Dr. Richard Diilard, to the "Maga zine of American History," entitled 'Declaration of Independence by a Colonial Church," and ''The Historic Tea Party of Edenton, 1774." The accuracy of history is its chief merit, but when combined with evi dences of earnest research and grace ful expression, the interest become delightful as well as instructive. It is interesting to know the names of five of the ladies composing the 'Tea Party," whose love of indepen dence encouraged our Forefathers to deeds of greatness and valor. It is gratifying to know that they were Edenton ladies, and a great satisfac tion to find the true history given to the public by an Edentonian; and that through his zeal and patriotic purpose, and the skill of an artist whose merit has been long known to us, a true copy of the Tea Party" picture has been reproduced, Long may he live 1 We rather think that there are not so many Democrats in North Caro lina who are enthusiastic over the unlimited coinage of silver as there were last summer and fall, Repre sentative Henderson, the ablest man inHhe present House delegation from this State, is reported as favoring this platform : I am in favor of the Government buying silver with silver; that the Government stop the issue of money and have only bank bills in circula tion. Iwintto see the Sherman law repealed. There seems to bo a growing sentiment in favor ol the repeal of this law, not only in North Carolina a&d the Sout!, but all over the country, with the exception of two or three 'silver states."
