CHARLOTTE. N. C. Friday, November 15, 1895, WASHINGTON LETTER. From Our Reeular Correspondent. Washington, Nov. 12, 1895. The sharp scythe ot ekction day has made havoc in the field of Democratic aspirants for the Presidential nomination. In the first place, no such canidate is now likely to come out of Ohio. Mr. Brice, with his millions, and with bis eyes turned toward the White House, and Mr. Campbell, who certainly was not with out hope, are out ot the race. Neither is Mr. Hill very much in it. In the opinion of leading Democrats, the New York surprise even seriously affects the aspir ations of Mr. Whitney, if he really wanted to head the ticket. The vry decided Maryland flop deprives Senator Gorman of the prestige which had at tached to him as the leader of the Demo crats in biB State. Ho is at least for the present, set aside. It must not be sup- esod, however, that Gorman has passed, e will not stay in the background. His adroitness, his capacity and bis political ability will again bring him to the front. How far the result in Kentucky will- ef fect Mr. Carlisle's chances for the nomis nation is an open question. The counter result of the elections is that the Repu blican crop of candidates sprouts more vigorously than ever, and for the next six months the leading candidates will spar for position in a truly interesting way. The majority in New York and Pennsylvania will help the influence of Piatt and Quay in the convention. At present it is probable that both are for Reed. In Ohio, however McKinley again looms up as a formidable rival, while out in Iowa Senator Allison has the advan tage of a few antagonisms and a rocord for conservatism. Reed, McKinley, and Allison have all been benefited by the lection, and so, too has Mr Morton if he really intends to be a candidate. Any one who labors under the impres sion that the administration is in tears over the result of the elections would soon abandon that idea if he could sound the feelings of a goodly number of Demo crats who are holding office at the pres ent time, and who confess an allegiance to Cleveland stronger than party ties. This condition of the administration democratic mind may result partially from the fact that it is always in order to hold a post-election autopsy in order to verify the diagnosis given before the voters of the country prescribed for the national patient. A report of the real disease affecting the patient must be made, and in the case of the election just over Mr. Cleveland's friends are gladly announcing their belief that the opposi tion of party bosses to the President was the real factor which caused defeat. They say it was simply a case of a bouse divided against itself. They do not look upon this fact as any argument against the feasibility of reconstructing the house. Instantly, as is usual in such cases, the victors in the hard struggles in Maryland and Kentucky are being boomed for even greater things. Personal admirers seem disposed to push them right along toward the very top of the national heap. Evidences of vice presidential strength and availability are discovered in Gov. elect Lowndes, while the presidency itself is being dangled before the eyes of Gov. elect Bradley. But these are really mushroom booms, which spring up from the fertile soil of surprising victory. The managers of the genuine booms do not exhibit any undue evidences of alarm, but are rather disposed to foster these local ebullitions of enthusiasm for their own purposes. It is altogether improb able that the men who headed the suc cessful tickets will be accredited six months bonce with sufficient responsU bility for these performances to warrant their selection for use as presidential timber. m There is high authority for the state ment that the Cuban question is giving the President very grave concern. It is said that be feels that a definite delivers ance of some kind is expected from him, and that he is anxious to meet the wishes and demands of the majority of bis coun trymen. He is less inclined now than in the Hawaiian matter to put transeoen dentalism above the springs of every day interest and endeavor. In the Cuban case it is asserted that he is disposed to go, if possible, with his countrymen, or else persuade them by some reasoning and show of facts to go with him. What line he will take is conceded to be a knotty question. The sending of a spe cial commissioner to Cuba to investigate and report is improbable. No reappears ance of a Blount commission will be seen. But the recognition of the insurgents as belligerents would open the way for ac tive interest by the United States. It is urged that he just turn the whole quesM tion over to Congress, with such euggess tions as may be appropriate, and let na turo take her course. There is evidently a very general and earnest hope, regard less of party, that some Executive action betaken in behalf of Cuba. The rumor that Hoke Smith would soon resign from the Cabinet has many believers. The reason assigned is that his private affairs require the entire time of the Secretary. Not associated with the current rumor of the intended re signation is the belief that Secretary Smith is to be selected to fill the vacancy in tbo Supreme Court caused by the death ot Justice Jackson. 1 his selection would be characteristic of Mr. Cleveland, who, Jit is said, is-inclined to repeat the pro motion of Lamar, from the Interior port folio to the Supreme bench, in the Smith case. Secretary Smith himself, when asked for an affirmation of the report, would neither affirm or deny it. They tell a good story of a lady now in Washington who, when Mr. Cleveland was serving his first term in the White House, was at one of the presidential rev captions and getting a trifle rattled for got the pretty speech she intended to deliver. Instead, she grasped the Presi dent's hand, and looking earnestly in his face, said,. "How do you do Grover?" She is a pretty woman and the President is not averse to looking at a pretty woman and even squeezing her hand. He held on to her band and looked in her face, which finally became scarlet. After waiting a few seconds, which seemed an hour to the lady, he replied, (I am very well, indeed, and very happy to have met yon." It is but to be expected ' that several eminent statesmen will give thanks this month with a mental reservation. FOB THE CHATiLOTTE DEMOCRAT. CuUing Prices. Say what you please, gentlemen, but something must be done to stop this abominable undercurrent of " Cutting Prices." ' For th manufacturers, jobbers and merchants have, "cut" and " cuf " till they have "cut" all the profit out of every line of goods, so that the manufact urers cannot afford to pay their operatives enough wages scarcely "to keep soul and body together." Hence, the "strikes" in so many places, which are entailing untold suffering upon tens of thousands of innocent families throughout our land 1 Why, only this a. m. I saw in the Charlotte Observer, where four large tanneries in Boston, which have been running constantly for 55 years, bad to suspend yesterday, because "they could not afford to furnish leather at the prices offered by the manufacturers." I know that, "competition is said to be the life of trade," but that don't keep opposition and "cutting prices" from being downright robbery of the wage-earners in factories, etc., and resulting in 'bankrupting tbou sands of merchants, and finally recoilinq upon the producer of the materials. This state of things has been going on till the country is becoming demoralized; and, ii some steps are not soon taken to stay this tide of undercurrent, mobs and strikes will Boon become as common in this country as they are in Italy or Ireland, followed by a reign of terror that will close up all the "grounds" upon which President Cleveland based that splendid Thanksgiving Proclamation issued on the 4th inst. To meet the demand for low prices, liquids are diluted, substances are adulter ated, and fabrios are "shoddyized," until the latter are almost worthless, and the former so poisonous, that the multitude of doctors are getting rich treating diseases caused by these adulterations, etc. Well," say some, " What remedy do you propose ?" Now that is a question that will require more brains than are in any one man's head to answer, but it occurs to me, Mr. Editor, that if a ma jority of the manufacturers would call a congress at some central point, say at Atlanta, during the Exposition, they would find brains enough to settle on some "laws, rules, and regulations," by which they could fix maximum and mini mum prices, so they would be enabled' to pay their operatives living wages; and thereby put a stop to strikes, etc. Beside the financial benefit resulting from these "rules tand regulations," -they would greatly promote the morals of the country. How much better would it be for all parties if the quality and price of every thing was raised to a Christian standard. There are volumes of thought and Chris tian ethics in Matt, vii: 12, that many professed Christians even, seldom think of. Why, sir, these "sharp tricks" have been practiced so long that many who are guilty of lying, cheating and defrauding, are -looked upon- as "shrewd fellows;" when in fact, they are downright rascals 1 But I did not start out to write a moral essay, but to make sorr.e suggestions, which will, it discussed extensively in the journals of the country, result in an era of prosperity that will surpass by far all the tree silver convenlioi s that ever have, or will be held in America. So mote it be t W. P. Williams. Davidson College, N. C, Nov. 8, 1895. N. B. Please tell your printers not to prefix " Rev." to my name. I am very proud of the title, but don't wish to make an ostentatious display of it. VY. The Tube Rose Industry in Dupliu. Mr. N. H. Carter, of Teachey's, who was in the city today, tells us that the tube rose farmers are preparing to gather. the bulbs for shipment .North. lhcy will be rushing them about the first of November. There are between 1500 and 2000 acres devoted to the culture of thee bulbs in Duplin county, all along tho line of the Wilmington & Weldon Railroad. The yield is generally an average of 25 barrels to the acre and they are worth about $4 per barrel. This is $100 dollars to the acre and it is expected that the culture of these bulbs will this year drop from $15,000 to $20,000 in Duplin. The bulbs are shipped to florists North and West and it is a curious fact that many of them find t! eir way back here from the hands of these florists who, of course, make a handsome profit by tho transaction. Wilmington Review. Honesty Rewarded. A day or two ago a 15-year old boy picked up a wallet on Cambridge street, which, upon being opened, was found to contain $126. The boy was an honest lad, and, having counted, the money, he waited where he had picked up the purse for the return of the person who would claim ownership. Very soon a middles aged woman hurried breathlessly down the street, and, stopping before the boy, demanded whether or not he bad seen anything of a pocketbook. The boy promptly turned over the money and its receptacle, and then the woman said : " You're an honest boy, and I'll repay you." The next morning the lad called at the address which the woman had given him. She opened the door, and, perceiving who her caller was, directed her step toward the pantry, returned. and then she banded the young man that form of pie popularly termed a "turn. over." Boston Traveller The Peanut Crop. The canvass of the principal peanut growers in North Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee, recently, made, elicited the following information : The present crop is about 65 per cent. of an average one. The yield as reported is rather meagre, and seems to be gradu ally lessening, possibly attributable in many cases to impoverishment of the land by repeated growing. The ques tion of the relative quality of the nuts this season is a mooted one. Replies lean to the side of good quality for the following reasons: The planting was at least three weeks late, and if the nuts are given the usual length of time for maturity the growth should have ex tended through September. Instead of this being the case, this month was a disastrous one, owing to the very uns usual drought, and the nuts that started during that month came to nothing. In most cases these immature nuts will not be picked off at all, and, though thus re ducing the' quantity, will improve the quality. The conditions differ in toe two States, the crop of North Carolina being better than that in Virginia, the yield and percentage of good quality showing some advantage. ffifrs &u&lott& gjemgjcrat, Sfortl Carolina Hew. Mr. L. W. Holt wiTl erect a $200,000 cotton mill at Fayettevilie, N. C, and has already contracted for 500,000 brick to be used for the bnildings. There is also some talk of erecting a bleachery. Mr. Frank B.. Carpenter, assistant chemist in the agricultural experiment station at Raleigh, N. C, has resigned his position to take charge as chemist tor the Virginia Chemical Co., of .Rich mond. Mr. Y. P. Plyler reports a monstrosity intffe way of a "Siamese twin" calf which was born a few days ago near Mt. Pros peci, in Buford. township. The two calves were joined together at the small f the back and were well formed, but they did not live. Monroe Enquirer. A Novimbib Curiosity. Miss Glad by s, daughter of Mr. A. S. Withers, of Yorkville, has sent The Enquirer a lu scious ripe peach that has just been ma tured on a tree in her father's garden. The tree contains perhaps a dozen or more peaches, and this is the firs', and only crop of the year. Enquirer. It is said that during the last few days more than 200 head of cattle have died in western Kansas from eating the second growth of sorghum, which is rank poison. The crop of sorghum is very large in western Kansas, and the second growth Ts excedingly rank. Many farmers turned their cattle into the fields to eat it down, and death was the result in nearly every case. In Phillips county fifty died from eating this forage, while reports from other counties state that the loss has been heavy. In Stanton county a herd of forty tat steers died within two hours after eating sorghum froage. Hickory Press. Make Way For the Countrymen. Major Moses P. Handy, in the Chicago Times Herald, contends that the country man has the best chance to win the great prizes in politics. Take the States with the largest cities New York, Massa chusetts, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Ohio, California, Maryland and Missouri their senators all hail from the country. The major then takes up the presidency and says: Did you ever notice how few presiuents of the United states were city bred and how few bailed from cities when elected? Come to think of it, New York City has contributed only one president, Chester A. Arthur, and hia presidency came about by an act of providence. Tilden, who was a city president, was beaten by Hayes, who was a rural product. Be. sides, Tilden was not urban by birth. Arthur, the solitary urban president, was country born, his birthplace being Fair field, Vt. In fact, it may be said that no man born in a lar. ecity ever became president of the United States. Jefferson, Monroe and Madison were country gentlemen be fore and after taking the presidency. The two Adamses, father and son, were na tives of Brain tree, Mass., and lived at Quinsy. Andrew Jackson was an out countryman. Martin van Buren was born at Kmderbook, JN. Y., and began a lite of officesholding as surrogate of Co lumbia county. Polk was a countryman all bis life, the elder Harrison was a farmer born, and the younger, although bailing irom Indianapolis when elected, was born at North Bend, a small village in Ohio, and was country-bred. Taylor and Tyler were "born and raised." as they say down South, on Virginia plan tations. Fillmore was a countryman, born at Summerhill. Cayuga county, N. Y., but lived in Buffalo when it began to put on city airs. Buchanan was born at Stony Batter, died at Wheatland and prided himself as being a farmer. Lino coin, Johnson and Grant all three were countrymen, the nearest to city born be ing Andrew Johnson, who was a native of Raleigh, N. C, when it had a popu lation of a village. It is the same way in business. Al most every great capitalist, merchant and professional man in the United States is country-bred The men born in cities who inherit fortunes and step into the shoes of their fathers find it difficult to hold their own against country boys like Jay Gould. Charles Broadway Rouss, Charles A. Dana, John H. Inman and a host of others. And it is so literature. Nearly every famous writer is the product of thecoun try. The countryman has the best of it. Whether on the farm or in the city, he bosses the job An interesting Fact as to North Carolina. North Carolina is not only a State of great diversity of climate, but it is really a large State. Did it ever occur to you that it is really larger than the States of JNew Hampshire, Vermont, Massachu setts, Rhode Island, Delaware and New Jersey all combined and with 5 000 square miles to spare. Tbis is true. If you win take a string and stretch it irom the faitbest point in Currituck county to the outer edge of Cherokee county, and holding the thumb at Currituck turn tbe string northward tbe Cherokee end will put you in tbe middle of Lake Champlaio across Virginia, Maryland and all inter vening State, New York included, to the Lake. A great and marvellous State truly and in many ways. It has more sounds and rivers than any other State perhaps in tbe Union. It has a greater variety of production possibly than any other. Its manifold resources are only beginning to be known. It is very rich in forests, in fine native woods. There ought to bo a balf dozen or more large furniture manut'aci ures in the State. But tbo products of North Carolina are too numerous and important for present handling. Wilmington Messenger. The Average Cotton Yield. Washington, Nov. 11. The cotton returns to the Department of Agricul ture for the month of November show an average yield tper acre of the entire cotton belt of 155.6 pounds, distributed by States as follows : Virginia, 190; North Carolina, 168: South Carolina, 141; Georgia, 157; Florida, 148; Alabama, 135; Mississippi, 160; .Louisiana, 177; Texas, 151; Arkansas, 183; Tennessee, 181. All other States and Territories, 207. A large majority of the crop correspondents of the Department complain of a short yield, many reporting a half crop, poorest in 30 years, or something similar. The dry weather, whieh has practically de stroyed the top crop in many localities and injured it everywhere, has been favorable for picking, so that the fibre is generally reported clean and in good con dition. The damage from drought is not confined to particular States, none hin rr J free from it, SUPBEIIE COURT DECISIONS A DIGEST OF OPINIONS. ., Raleigh Observer. W. H. Johnston, Bx'r, (appellant) ts. W. T. Knight et al., from Vance county. Opinion by Fairoloth, G. J. 1. If the donee of a power intends to execute that power, that intention, how over manifested, whether directly or in directly, postively or by just implication, will make the exeoution valid and opera tive. 2. A residuary devise will operate as an execution of a power to dispose of a property by will, unless there is some thing to Bhow that such was not tbe tea tator's intention. 3. As there is nothing to show a cons trary intention, tbe fact that the donee of the power devises to the identical per sons and no others, who were designated in the will giving the power intended thereby to exercise tbe authority given her; and as the donee could not have de vised the property to any one else, a re siduary cloase in such will includes all tbe property which the devisor could dispose of. 4. Where a will provides "that the balance ot my estate be equally divided between A, B. and the children of C and D, and tbe children of E;" Held, that these words require a distribution per capita, as any other construction would do violence to the apparent intend of the will. Affirmed. A. W. Shaffer vs. Bryan Gaynor (appel lant), from Beaufort county. Opinion by Avery, J. 1. Testimony tending to locate the boundaries of land by the general repu tation in tbe neighborhood is admissible under any circumstances. 2. Where the acts of dominion con sisted in cutting timber some time dur ing a particular year on a pieoe of wood rand, but there was no evidence to show that tbe acts were continuous, or that the land, though while covered with tim ber, was not susceptible toother use and might not have been cleared and culti vated, regardless of its capacity for profi table production; Held, that such acts are not such assertions of ownership as would ripen into title. 3. Parol proof is not, as a general rule, admissible to vary or contradict a plain written description, but it is always oom petent to show where the parties to a deed located the lines and corners by a contemporaneous survey in order to define more exactly what was intended to pass. Henoe it is competent to prove that a contemporaneous, but not a subsequent survey, located a corner at a place dif ferent from that asertained by following course and distance. 4. Where declarations are made by one in possession of land, characterizing or explaining hi claim of ownership, or in disparagement of his own title, they are competent as evidence, not only against the declarant, but againt all persons claiming under him. But such declara tions, when offered to contradict a pic in, unambiguous, description are incompe tent. 5. Where the defendant, with a view of showing damages, offered to show that one Linke prevented the sale of the lumber cut by him on the land in dispute; Held, that it was not error to exclude such evidence,'- as there had been no testimony to show that Linke was the agent of the plaintiff. 6. Where tbe executions under which the land was sold issued upon debts created before the year 1868, title passed to the purchaser discharged of all liability to allotment of a homestead. Affirmed Howell & Jeffreys vs. J. B.Coleman and wife (appellants) from Edgecombe county. Opinion by Fairclotb, C. J. I. Where it was admitted that when the mortgage for $1,000 was Bigned by the defendants it secured only $500, and that in that condition the defendant, J. B. Coleman, carried it to the store of the plaintiffs, the mortgages; and where there was conflicting evidence as to tbe time when the change was made in the mortgage; Held that the one issue subs mitted : "Is the mortgage and crop lien for $1,000, dated July 27, 1891, and pros bated September 9, 1891, the deed of the defendants ?" together with his Honor's charge that the change being admitted, the burden was on the plaintiffs to satisfy the jury that such change was made with the consent of the defendants, or was known and approved by them at or be fore the acknowledgement for probate and registration, was sufficient both in form and substance. 2 The fact that the feme defendant admitted that she read and examined tbe deed when she acknowledged it for pro bate is sufficient evidence of knowledge and approval of the change to go to tbe jury. No error. S. T. Moffit (appellant), vs. George H. Glass et al., from Wake county. Opin ion by Fairclotb, C. J. In an action for damages for breach of contract in building a house, where tbe issue : "Did' defendant, Glass, make tbe contract with - the plaintiff as al lodged ?" was answered "No;" Held, that the plaintiff's right to a quantum meruit inquiry does not depend solely upon the contract, but upon the ground that he rendered service in work and labor performed, and that question should have oeen beard under tbe issue: "Was tbe building accepted by defend ant or his agent ?" and "Was the build ing completed according to contract " New trial. II. E. Brassfield, Administratix, vs. W. C. Powell & Co., (appellants) from Wake county. Opinion by Parches, J. Where B, being indebted to the plain tiffs intestate, executed to him a mort gage or his crop to be grown in 1894, which mortgage was registered on Jan. 15, 1894; and being also indebted to de fendants to the amount of $126.19, and desiring to obtain from them advances to the amount of $185, to enable him to make and gather his crop, executed to defendants an agricultural lien under tbe statute to the amount of $185, andjin tbe same instrument made a chattel morts gage on his crop and o'.her property to secure the $126.19 whioh instrument was registered on Jan. 1894; Held, that the clause in the instrument executed to the defendants : "There is no incumbrance on said personal property, except that I am to pay J. 8. Brassfield out of crop $116, and interest on same from Dec. 25 th, 1893," makes a lien on the crop to be paid out of the crop, and when the defendants accepted this conveyance with tbis provision in it, thev accepted it I i&htixlotiz, gjU as trustees and are bound to carry out toe trust. ' No error. In re the will of Frank Palmer, from Wake county. Opinion by Montgomery, J. 1. After a will has been admitted to probate in common form and letters testamentary issued to the executor, the Clerk of tbe Superior Court cannot re move such executor and appoint a col lector for tbe estate without a hearing bated upon notice to show cause why be should cot be removed. 2. In such case it is tbe duty of the Clerk, upon tbe caveators giving tbe bond required of them by law, to trans fer tbe case to the Superior Court for trial, and also to issue an order to the executor requiring him to preserve tbe property and collect the debts of the decendant until tbe issue of devisavit vel non should be determined. No error. State vs. George Darden et al, (appel lants) from Pitt county. Opinion by Clark, J. 1. Where an indictment on its face was good and sufficient as a charge for stealing the temporary use of a horse, tbe addition ot the buggy does not viti ate tbe indictment as to the horse, but was simply harmless surplusage so far as tbe face of the indictmeut goes. 2. Where sufficient matter appears in tbe bill to enable tbe Court to proceed to judgment, tbe Code, sect. 1183 for bids an arrest of judgment. No error. In re James S. Caldwell, from Guilford county.

Postage on Packages The Postmaster General Calls Attention to Some Important Rales to be Observed. The following notice issued by the Postmaster General is ot interest to all who send paokages by mail : Washington, D. C, October 16. Be sure you have sufficient postage on packages. Inquire at Postoffice if in doubt and avoid delay ot packages in postoffice or in dead letter office at Washington. Packages sealed require letter rate. Packages unsealed, with writing on in side in the nature of correspondence, re quire lower rate. Certain artioles of merchandise, sealed or unsealed, to foreign countries, are stopped iu the dead letter office unless fully prepaid at foreign letter rate. Many artioles of merchandise are abso lutely prohibited transmission in the mails; therefore, inquire bofore mailing. Parcels to Canada or Mexioo must never be closed against inspection. Full payment of postage on foreign mail matter secures cheaper postage in all cases, and should be enojuraged by postmasters whenever advice or infor mation may be afforded by tbem to send ers of such matter. Inquire always if in doubt and save money and prevent delay. Ths name and address of the sender should be on each parcel before mailing. This is to facilitate a return to tbe sender in tbe event of non-delivery. F. H. Jones, First Assistant Postmaster General. Conditions Throughout the South En couraging. Throughout the South, the condition of material affairs is most encouraging. Business relations generally, are much more satisfactory than they were a year ago. The grain crop has been bountiful, and even were tbe price of cotton as low as at this time last fall, the economy and thrift which have been almost universally practiced, would insure tbe farmer against tbe financial depression which was borne so heavily upon him the last year. But with the better prices now prevailing, we have every reason to look hopefully to the coming year's work always provid ing that the farmer adhere to bis pres ent wise plan of raising supplies at borne to meet every, even the unexpected, de mand, and leaving out entirely from his caloulationd'any speculative plain, as to the price ot cotton. Let him provide a living at home, and he is at least &afe, be tbe price of cotton high or low. Southern Cultivator. C orn is a vigorous feeder and re sponds well to liberal fertiliza tion.
