The New York Board of Trade and Transportation has unanimously adopt ed a resolution "to bring the uational Democratic and Republican convea tions" to that city next year. Ia order to mike tho resolatioa effective the president of the board ia authorized to appoiut a committee of twenty-five.

Nothing more conclusive proves that North Carolina is eateriog upon pe riod of most wonderful industrial d velopement than does the hoaltbv con dition of its railroad properties and tho prospect of their great expansion by new couetruction during the next two years. If tho number of charter granted by the Legislature be any indication, tho closing years of tho Nineteenth century will see ac enormous advance 'n the business of collecting, carrying distributing, merchaudiso in this State and the outire South. The Laws cf North Carolina for lSi)J will ahow fourteen uew roads chartered aud the charters of as many more amended. A majority of the new roads are, to be sure, short lines constructed with a view to devolopin? some particular sec tion or industry, but at least three will complete great through lines, and eveu tho shortest and mast insignitlcent of tho propoiiod roads are to be built with the end ia view of ultimately being mado feeders of soma great rail way sys tem. The tax on corporate franchises in North Carolina has beeu very much dis cussed recently, aud there teems to be fcomo doubt, generally, as to tho pro visions under the new revenue act. It may be well to quote the brief state ment made by the State Auditor: " J'ho property of railroad companies is asessed by the railroad commission at so much per milo. It is supposed that tuo value of the franchise is considered iu connection with the assesKment. Iu addition to" an ad valouem tax on private business corporations, a gradu ated frauchise tax is imposed accord ing to the amount of capital stock. The lax ou a capital ot ,')oU or less is $, and ascend-) by a graduating Bcalo to &w, on a capital stock ot Sl.000.0Q.. Hanks aro not subject to the franchiso tax. Insurance companies are taxed ou tho gruss receipts. Upon them there i.s no specilio franchise tax. The fran chise tax is nscertained aud collected by tho sheriff or tax co'.ioctor cf each county in which corporations are locat ed, and paid to the State Troaaurer. " The total number of bills on tho House calendar during tho last ses sion of the Lcgistii'-o was 2,071, includ ing resolutions. I he Senate calendar had l,.ri ',!, making a grand total of bills aud resolutions anuounced by the two reading clerks of both houses of 3,C70. Allowing for the number of bills intro duced in tho Senate us a basis and add ing the number introduced in tho Sounto that were tabled or roportrd un favorably the total number of different bills on all subjects put into the new law mill must have amounted to iu the neighborhood of a, 000 bills. This av crnges about seventeen bills to each Senator and Representative of the 170 ia tho two houses. Mrs. Robert It. Gotten, of Raleigh, is making an ettort to form a State x eder atiou composed of women in North Carolina. This will bring tho women of this State iu touch with each other aud with the women of other States, thereby seenring the increased benefits which comes from enlarged acquaint ance, txcuango of thought, and unity of action with dednito aim. All organ izations of women, and all women's departments of mixed organizations (such as Daughters of Kebekah, Itatu- uouo Slaters, etc. 1 are invited to join in this movement, which is nou-sectarian, non-political and only designed for mutual helpfulness. The new revenue law provides that on each room or hall used as a theatre or opera house where public exhibitions are given for profit in a city or town having more than 10,000 inhabitants tho tax would bo 200 per annum; less than 10,000 inhabitants end over 5,000, SJIO'J. On less thau 5,000 population aud uot loss than 2.O00. &0, while the tax for a town with leys than 1,000 in habitants is ?... The license is to bo triveu by tho sheriff, and tho taxes are to be equally divided between the State and county. Each traveling theatre comiauy exhibiting in a theatre that is uot licensed shall pay a tax of 10.

Among other counties named in the acts prohibiting public drunkenness, there aro Mtsckleuburg, Rutherford, Uaston, Haywood aud Cleveland. Iu these couuties it is provided that druukeuuess Bhall be punished aa a misdemeanor, and not as a violation of town ordinance, as formerly. The Governor offers a reward of $200 for tho unknown murderer of Macon Bryan, who was killed at vauceboro, Craven county, recently. Tho old board of directors of tho At lantic & North Carolina Railroad have refused to surrender their oliicas to ;he now board appoinloi by the board of internal improvements. The old board contends that their term of office do not expire until next September, and in accordance with tho charter of the road, tho board of internal improve ments has no power to remove them. The name of Jim Youug together with tho uame3 of the other fusion trusteos of the new auditcrium build ing for tho white blind, appointed by the Legislature of 1307, has been chis eled from the cornerstone of that insti tution. The alone now bears the sim ple inscription: "1843-1808." Auditor Ayer 13 engagod in reorgan izing the pousion boards. Practically ail of the present county boards will remain ia office. They are appointed for life, or during good behavior. The queerest act of the legislature is the one making it a misdemeanor to kill a fox in Alleghany county for two years. It is the first act of the kind ever passed in the State. Another act for an eastern county forbids hunting save by permission of landowners, fox hunteis with not less than three hounds being excepted. An effort is being made to organize a company at Uendersouville to extend the street car line to Flat Rock. If the plan goes through the cars will b run by dummy engines. A good many papers in this Stato and elsewhere have stated that the last Legislature enacted a law abolishing the three days of grace allowed on drafts. This is a mistake, such a provision was in the law of negotiable instruments passed on the last day the General Assembly was in session, bat attention was cnlled to it and it was stricken out by an amendment. Mr. -A. M. Price, who recently pur chased the Lander mioa mill property at Lincolnton, wilj erect a modern cot ton mill building on the property this summer. The main building will be 100x50 feet, with an engine huuu and piektt room annex 00x32 itou 10 PROTECT THt TOLBERTS. The Banished Offered the Support of the Law. ELLERBF'S PR0CUMATI0N. Ue Calls Ipsa Officers sod the Good Clti zens to Protect "tie Vmg4 aad Per secuted Citizens." The story of the Tolberts is knows all over the country. Sinoe that fatal e'ec.ion day ai Phoenix when poor Etheredge was killed and others badly hurt, since those days 01 violence which succeeded, the Tolberts and some others have been wanderers from their homes. I hey have begged that they be permitted to return to their homes in Greenwood and Abbeville counties, they have pleaded and have promised, but all, it seems, to no avail. The situation there now is this: The people of the towns have not such bitter hatred lor the Tolberts, bat tney recognize that in the rural districts there is an animosity which may lead to bloodshed. They have consequently advised the Tolberts and others not to take up their residence in oli Abbe ville district Tho governor has been appealed to for protection for those advised to loave. He was almost powerless at the time of the riot, but endeavored to do everything possible to stem the tide of bloodshed. In answer to a number of appeals re cently received Gov. Ellerbe has issued the following proclamation: The State of South Carolina By Ills Excel lency VY . II. Ellerbe, Governor ana Commander-in-Chief In and over the State aforesaid. To all ami tdnttular Sheriffs. Constables and other Officers 01 Justice, and tne citizens of Greenwood and Abbeville Counties, In llio said Slate, Greeting: Whereas, it has been brought to my atten tion that certain citizens of suctions of Green wood aud Abbeville counties are deprived of the enjoyment of their liberties, their prop erty aud their civil rights in violation of the constitution and laws ol tbis State, ana tnat there la a conspiracy among some evilly dis posed oersous in said sections to drive and keen awav from their homes aad vocations said citizens and otherwise deprivo them of their just and legal right. Now, therefore, I, William H. Ellerbe, Gov ernor, do hereby issue this my proelamatiou demanding and requiring said evilly dis posed persons, and all otbers encouraging the same, to desist from said lawless projects and couHpiracies, and to resume their peace- lut and lawful avocations. And I do hereby tall on the sheriffs, dep uty sheriff, magistrates, constables, nud all other peace officers in Greenwood and Ab beville counties, under the pains and penal' ties of law, to protect all such wronged and Persecuted citizens in their lives, property and liberties aud in the performance of their duties, and said officer shall have all the assistance withiu the power of the Stato through thid office and those of the solicitors of the Seventh and Eighth circuits and tho attorney general of the State.

And the good people in the said counties are earnestly urged to assist in upholding the law and in saving the cood names of the respective counties. Given under my hand and the seal of said State, in Columbia, this 13th day of March, in the vcar of our Lord 18U9 and in the 123d year of the independence of the United States of America. W. II.

The action of Civil Governor Mora, and the police in sttempting to prevent Monday's popu lar manifestations in favor ef General Maximo Gomez, is strongly oeusured, and the ill feeling against the police runs high. The people consider that their rights and freedom have beon attacked. The action of Governor General Brooke in re straining the Cuban authorities from interfering, has pleased the people and is favorably commented upon. The occurrence has done much to des troy the popularity and efficiency of the new police force. General Gomez is receiving hundreds of telegrams from all parts of the island expressing the people's allegiance and loyalty to him and to Cuba. The Madrid Correspondencia says that the cabinet has advised the Queen Regent to ratify the treaty of peace with the United States without tho re assembling of the Cortes. Ten Italians Arrested for Counterfeiting.

These unfortu nates were under a guard of three men waiting the boar 9 o'clock, when tby were to have a hearinir before a iastice of the peace on the charse of arson. Wm. Cotton, the leader of the nice men, confessed some time ago that a conspiracy had been entered into which resulted in two incendiary fires here ia February, and on this evidence the men were to have been tried. A Proclamation by the Governor. Governor Candler is very bitter in his denunciation of the Palmetto lynching, and terms the killing an outrage. In an interview the Gov ernor said: "I regard the outrage as simply inexcaaabie. These mea had been arrested, as I am informed, aud proof was at hand to convict them. They were in the hands of the law. The law was amply able to punish them. and the interposition of this mob of dis guised mea was entirely unnecessary. aince with the proof in the bands of those who had made the arrest-1, con viction and punishment were absolutely certain. I offer the largest reward the law will authorize for the appre hension of any one of the perpetrators of this dastardly deed, audi will try to see to it that they are prosecuted to the limit ot the law. such outrages mui-t atop in Georgia." Later in the day the Governor issued the followiug procla mation : "Whebkas, Offloial information has t-n received that on th night of March 15. 1S99, an unknown mob foully murdered H-nrj Bingham, colored; Tip Uudson. colored; E i.

The troops first encountered the rebel out posts in the dense jungle on the banks of the river. Tho enemy was dislodged aftgr half an hour's fighting. . The Americana advanced in splendid order unaer a heavy nre until it was nec essarv to vollflv tb rhla f rum th 1 trenches. The latter had great ad vantage and dropped a number of our men. The Americans charged across the rice fields, making four ad vances on the enemy, who numbered 1,000 men, 500 of whom were entrench ed, and in the face of a cross fire. Our troops, however, carried the town after four hours' fighting and burned the outskirts, the rebels firing from the windows and keeping up a running fire in the streets. The Americans then withdrew in order to obtain more am munition. The rebel loss was about 1P0 men and the American loss was: Corporal Johnson, of Co. C, and Private McAvoy, of Co. L, killed.

The Loudon Evening News pub lishes a sensational Dreyfus story. It declares that the former Russian am bassador, Baron Von Monheim, is the real culprit who sold both Russian and French secrets to the German govern ment, adding that the Russion govern ment itself is convinced of his guilt. and that it is only to avoid a public scandal greater than the Dreyfus af fair, that he is unpunished, further than the intimation that he is not to show his face within thw Czar's domi nions. In a fight, at St. Louis, Ma, Bud Price, a negro, and Edward Osterhide were shot and almost instantly killed. Detective Jack Wdliams did the shoot ing. A $1,750,000,000, Dinner.

Dams jed. New York (3pccial.) Flames which originated from tho igoitios; of a lace curtain, burst forth from the second tloor of tho Wicdsur Hotel at Forty teveuth street and Fifth avenue short ly after 3 o'clock Friday afternoon, aud in a few uiinuUs they had leaped up to the root aud enveloped the entire Fifth avenue and Forty-seventh street fronts of the hotel. T'Ju minutes later the flames were rouring through the interior of the hotel, and all means of escape by way of stairways otd eleva tors were cut off, and there was the wildest scene of excitement within and without the building. Hundreds of guests and employes were iu the hotel wheu tho fire broke out, and for many of then escape with safety was im possible. Fiobably from ten to fifteen lives were lost within a half-hour, and thirty or forty other iersona were in jured iu jumping from windows and ia rushing throuirh tho ilames iu the cor ridors and 011 tbestairways. Mauy who were injured died later at near-by reii deucesorat hospitals, and others who made wild ieapa to the stone wide walk wero so badly injured that they aro still hovering between life and death. The lire was lhe most spectacular ihat could be imagined. When it broke out Eifth A vence was crowded with people watching the St. Patrick's day parade, which was passing the building ut that moment, aud every window in front of tho hotel facing Fifth Avenue was flilod with tpectaiors, watching the marching men and the floats. An uuuffuiiliy large number of people were on tb streets, and Interfered not a little With the movements of llio liremen and K lico. In addition to the regular guests of tho not el, the windows wero crowded by a largo number of spectators, residents of the. city who had ungregaud there to witnubs tho 1 made. Within 40 or 45 minute after the fire broke out the walls cf the Fifth avenue side showed every indication of ialliug. nnd shortly, with an awful crah, they struck the asphalt cov ering of the street. This fall weakened the walls on the Forty-sixth and Forty-seventh street side, and they followed a moment later. Wheu lhe wails fell tho bricks and mortar and twisted girders and corrugated irou ailed the streets ou threo sides of lhe hotel. The doorsteps aud irou fences la front of the housed on the opposite tide of the street from th hotel wcru wrecked by the fulling wails, and tho aiuouut ot debris piled iu the streets was o grt-4it that travel will be impeded for seveiat days. Meanwhile terryfyiag scenes were being enacted by frenzied meu aud women on al most every fl ior of the great building. How many persons are buried in tho ruins is not knowu, but at least threo or four eraons were seen to jump, whoso bodies have not been recovered. Eye-witn ssos say they saw a woman throw a child from a window, and fall a moment later herself, just before tho collapse of the walls. As yet no trace of these bodies has been louuu. The loss on the contents of the building is almost complete. The salvage men managed to save $20,000 worth of paintings on the first floor of the hotel. Many of the guests who lived at the Windsor regularly lost val uable jewelry and bric-a-brac and other fur nishings, among them being F. F. Flower, a nspliew of ex-Ooverimr k lower, wno, among other thing, lost a package of jewelry valued at 8,000. Tho loss on the hotel is estimated at at least $1,000,010. Several adjoining buildings were damaged consider ably, but the los3 on thes i comparatively small. There was COO,000 insurance on tho building and -75,000 on the content?. Kogarding the origin of the lire, The Her ald published the following: John Foy, a waiter in thw hotel, was passing through the hall on tho parlor floor, the first above the street. He was making his way to a place where ho could catch a moment's sight ot the parade. In front of him walked a man, a patron of the hotel. Tho waiter did not know him. Passing thus one behind the other, they had nearly gained the angle of the passage near Fifth avenue ar.d Forty sixth street, when tho patron drew a match and lighted a cigar or cigarette. He tossed the match aside. It was still blazing and foil into the foliis of a lace curtain. In an in3tant the filmy fabric was ablaze, and instantly the flumes shot to the surrounding draperies. TL1- from all accounts was the origin of tho holocaust ia which many hu man beings perished and others wero se verely mangled, while helpless thousands looked on ia wild horror. mm A upecial from London says Baron Russell, of Kiiloweu, Lord Chief Jus tice, has beeu appointed to succeed the late Baron Herschell on the Venezue lan arbitration commission. Reed at J'kyl Island. Speaker Thomas B. Reed anddangh terarrved in Brunswci k, Ga., Friday from Washington. Their coming was unheralded.

Moore, of New York. Ho will remain several days. A Floating Island. A special from Havana, 111., says a float ing island from one to two acres in ex tent and four to five feet thick, has come down the Illinois river. It crashed against n cabin boat, smashed the keel aud landed it ashore. It next struck the pier of a wagon bridge, shaking the structure violently and throwing several horses off the bridse. It then stranded on the shore and pier. Dornvtory Burned. News comes from Orangeburg, S.
