Xhe Savannah JNews thinks that one thing has been unalterably settled by tbe elections of last Tuesday, and that is that Senator Gorman will not be the democratic candidate for tbe presidency.

None of these changes doubt. After tne nrst ot January Utah I elects two Senators and they will be Re- publicans. Ibis gives a clear majority to tbem. Tbe next Senate after the 4th of March, 1897, will see three additional Republicans, one each from Kentucky, Ohio, and Maryland. This will give the Republicans forty-eight members. The slight advance in the price of cotton, coupled with the fact that there are now more full corncribs and fat hogs throughout the south than at any time previous, puts a cheerful aspect on tbe present outlook for former. Take it all in all, southern farmers who have, by rigid economy, probably made the cheapest crops ever grown by tbem, are all well fixed for tbe coming winter, and for a successful season in 1896. Beer kegs are being used with great success for tbe odd purpose of catching bears iu tbe vicinity of Hoquiam, Wash., and are said to make ,the best !eer traps ever used in that region. One end is knocked out of the teg, and then a number oi strong, sharp spikes are driven into its sides, tbe points slanting slightly toward the closed end. A big dab of honey or other delicacy especially liked by a bear is then placed at the further end, and the keg is care lessly dropped in the woods where the bears are likely to stumble across it. Tbe device caught five bears in one week for ona keg planter recently. The bear just .pushes right into tbe keg after tbe honey iu the end, and the spikes effectually pres vent him from backing out. and all he can do is roll around until he is tired, and then wait for the trap layer to come iTound.

HSrThey committed the great blunder of nominating Hardin for governor, als though it was well known that he was not in harmony with the sentiment of tbe convention on the silver question. Hardin went on the stump proclaiming his free silver views, notwithstanding the platform on which he was nominated. and denouncing, in unmeasured terms, Secretary Carlisle and other friends of sound money i i the state. In this injudicious and undemocratic course he was seconded by Senator Blackburn, who boastfully proclaimed bis contempt for Secretary Carlisle and tbe convention's platform, relying upon bis great per sonal popularity for re-election to the senate. Hardin's defeat was tbe natural result of his course, and there will be but few tears shed over it among democrats. Blackburn well deserves tbe same fate. whether he meets it or not. Tbe election of a republican governor in Maryland by 15,000 majority, and oi a republican mayor in Baltimore by 3,000, shows the extent oi the demoralization among tbe democrats of Maryland, which is one of the most reliable oall thejdernqejatitt states, brought about by tbe misrule of ;he bosses and tbe betrayal of tbe party by the two Maryland senators.- Newport ( Va.)

C.,Nov. 11, 1895 ine superior Court, just as was ex pected, decided against tbe fusionists who wanted to get the control of the peniten tiary, Judge Coble sayirg their election was not legal. Tbe fusionists lost all the offices for which they grabbed, save that of railway commissioner Gov. Carr spent five days at Atlanta last week and was delighted with the exposition, as indeed are' all who see it. The fact is that leaving the World's fair oui oi tbe question it is the best of all tbe expositions in point of attractiveness. Atlanta has certainly "undertaken the most daring experiment eVer made by so smaii a city. It ;is to be everlastingly regretted that the Legislature refused to make an appropriation to permit such an exhibit as Georgia, for example, makes in me - Georgia Manufacturers' Bulld og.' which in the opinion of your oors respondent is the most meritorious in the entire exposition. , '. The building of cotton mills in this State goes bravelv on: It' is Drettv safe to say that North Carolin will be able next year to consumo in her own mills all her cotton crop.. Speed the dav. There are now mills all the way from Asbevilie to Elizabeth City. Cotton is now grown almost on the 'mountain slopes.. .... , The North Carolina Democrats were demoralized before tbe elections of last week. They are even more so since these events. What is the outlook ? Dark indeed. Those who have a word to say declare that the party's only chance is to get upon straight Democratic lines. They say the party will not go to pieces on silver; that it is the true silver party in North Carolina: and is not only that, but stands for other things just as essential. Ibere is no prospect now of harmony in. tbe party, ine division does notuimin isb at all. The silver question seems to be about to become a back number. There is always more or less talk about fusion. It is practically agreed that there shall be fusion on tbe State ticket. It is an open question as to fusion on tbe national ticket. That will be decided upon early in tbe spring. There are certain reasons for disposing of tbe question as soon as possible. Mean. while tbe populists continue what tbey term their campaign of education. .One of them expressed surprise at the state ment made by a Republican that there was not likely to be fusion. " Surely he did not mean to speak this as to tbe State ticket, said the populist, with quite a sniff. The populists very well know the Republicans can do nothing in the State without them. The strength of the State Guard is now about 1700 officers and men. Four com panies were mustered out of service dur ing tbe past twelve months and an equal number mustered in. The force is well equipped for field service save as to cook ing utensils. The Supreme Court is this week at work on appeals from tbe 7th district. It. has as a rule filed opinions quite rapidly. Two of tbe canes of the State against the wrecked bank of New Hanover are on this, week's docket. There appear to be very good reasons for stating that the. .odds , are greatly in favor of the location of the Farmer's Alliance headquarters at Cary. The pressure to have it there has always been great. The board oi civil service examiners for the revenue service was in session here last- week and 17 applicants were examined, the examination being passed by at least three fourths ; this being a remarkable showing. Capt. John B. Burwell, who was for years tbe president ot feace institute, but more recently a dairyman and trucker, has made an assignment. The revenue affairs have lately been a little more active in seizing illicit stills, and last Friday captured tbe largest ever seen in this district. It is of 300 gallons capacity. It is rather queer, but a fact that the political parties make capital out of these seizures for violations of law. In other words if the officers are strict tbe opposite party will charge cruelty. It is really laughable. The day of real sympathy for moonshiners and their nefarious business is long past in this State. Some of the Republicans, particularly negroes, are mucn stirred up oecause oi an alleged statement that no Southern delegates to the National Republican convention are to be admitted. Tbe sec. retary cf the national committee comes out with a denial ot this. The .Republi cans regard North Carolina as safely in their clutches. They expect to get two or three more Southern states. Many of tbe cotton fields are entirely bare. A little gleaning will get all of tbe crop in tbe State. Tbe receipts here are only 8,000 bales, against 14,374 to this date last year. This shows how great is the falling on. Three years ago Mr. W. P. Batchelor, chief clerk to the secretary of State, sold to the Spurr Bros., at Lexington, Ky.t a half interest in bis trotting stallion Pamlico. Tbe horse died last winter. Now Mr. Batchelor sues- for 10,000, due for the half interest. The Spurr Bros. had $5,000 insurance on the horse. Tbe farmers in this part of tbe State m rn are paying up very weu mueea. xney raised their crops, this year at less ex pense than at any time since 1870.' Many of them say they regard tobacco as a more profitable crop than cotton. The tobacco growers are certainly the money makers this season. Lt. Barnes, U. S. navy, (retired), suc ceeds Lt. Henderson as drill instructor at the Agricultural and Mechanical College. Lt. Henderson goes in a few days to the battleship Indiana. t7-. . , j . u ery lew uonvicw uave mu tu Fifty will probably be sent from there to the farms on the Roanoke during the month. The crops at the farms are much better than was expected. The railway commission has taken in band the matter of a proper railway con nection at Salisbury, so that persons who are going to Asbevilie via that place will not have to lie over 24 hours as at present. Tbe commission is doing a good deal to regulate connections. Gov. Carr made requisition for Robert Nelson, a young white man who corns mitted burglary in Pender county and stole $125, and fled to Boston. He died of pneumonia last week, before he was arrested. From the Peabody fund Dr. Carry allows to the normal and industrial school for girls at Greensboro $3,000 and to tbe six negro normal schools $2,600, J He also allows I publio school (f to tbe Durham colored or a manual training ae- &xn&x,xziiT 4xar tails, partment) and to - the Clinton public school $600. Tbe cotton growers have been refusing to sell their cotton seed for the very low prices prevailing. There is a little ad vance, to 12 cents a bushel, and now they are making sales. Two or three yean ago seed sold for as much as 32 cents. The State library grows very slow now. It is to be regretted that tbo fund is not reasonably lrge; -as there are many, books needed. There are now about 25,000 volumes. The commissioner of agriculture is holding several farmers' institutes, as sisted by President Holladay and Prof. Massey, of the agricultural and mechani cal college. .Never before have these in. stitutes been held save in the summer. Lessa Cline, a white girl, really pretty, was yesterday pardoned by Gov. Carr, out 6f tbe penitentiary. She was serving a 12 months' sentence for theft. Her pardon is granted on the express condi tion that she is placed in a reformatory. She was at once taken to one in Balti more.

No less than 1,000 live fish were taken n tank-cars to the Atlanta exposition rom Morehead City. . This is one of the few places on the American coast where trains can run on a wharf where there is deep .water which is perfectly pure. A Great Wat Impending. It is reported from Europe that tbe great powers re alienated from England because of. its "jingoism and, menacing actions.- It is even said that it has not one inena among tee nations ot tbe world. Chamberlain will have to take water as to the Venezuelan imbroglio- If tbe Government of tbe United States shows backbone England will have to lower its demands. England has sent its ultimatum both to Venezuela and Ashan tee. It has a great big thing on hand in the Russo Chinese alliance. The ques tion is, what will England do about it? Will it fight? Tbe Venezuelan dispute is a small affair compared with the threat ened complications id tbe far East. The war talk is on heavily in London, grow- ng out of Russia s movements The treaty with China, gives Russia great advantages, securing ports and rights to buud railroads, and Other concessions of much commercial importance. This stirs John Bull deeply and he gives the tail of tbe British Lipn a fresh twist to make the growl reach the Bear and the Baltic. France is friendly to Russia. Suppose Russia will pot retreat from its position, what thenr. The New York Tribune treats the newe with much seriousness and discusses the "great crisis in the East as startling and not to be exaggerated in its significance. tsays : "lt places the world on the brink of the greatest international 'conflict since the Napoleonic wars. China, tbe cause oi the trouble and probable scene of much strife, needs not be taken into account. But at least three first-class Powers are mmediately concerned, and two more only a little less directly. It is a matter almost of life or death to Great Britain, Russia and Japan, and it is of great im portance to France and Germany as well Of tbe three first named, Great Britain and Japan are, of course, natural allies, and Russia is their foe. Of all the others, France is Russia's ally, and apart from that fact is always as deeply interested in tbe Russian side of the case as is Russia herself. Germany is in a curious position She is habitually hostile to Great Britain and has acted with France and Russia in Asian affairs. Yet IV seems incredible that she should continue so to act in such a case as this, in which she would have ittie to gain, and in which her most bit ter enemies have so much to gain. One cannot imagine Germany going to war for the aggrandizement ot France and Russia; but should war in the East come, she would either have to do so or to re verse her policy toward Great Britain. Increase and Decrease in Tax Valuation. Instead ot a reduction of values all along tbe line, quite a number ot coun ties show increased valuation In tbe tax returns. There is an increase in Ala mance of $327,504; Buncombe, $619,470; Guilfard, $312,243, Moore, $113,065; For syth, $53,621; New Hanover, $422,234; burke, szyo ; uertiora, 9i.mt: .Ran dolph, $17,982; Union, $48,612, and other counties. The reductions so far as re ported are Wake, $501,746; Johnston, $380,343; Cabarrus, $177,336, and Iredell, $155,414, show the greatest decrease, while the falling off is less . id other counties. In Mecklenburg it is $5d,06d; Durham, $08,002; Cumberland, $1,101; Person, $52,173; Sampson, $56,022; Wash ington, $81,843, and Wayne, $62,260. Raleigh Observer. .

Weddington & co.- "Punishment ot the Hold-Up Senators." The five democratic - senators who "held up" the Wilson tariff bill in the senate in the interest of trusts and mono polies, or because tbey objected to a single feature of it, have all met their punishment. These senators were Hill, Murphy, smith, Brice and Gorman, senator Mill carried his opposition to the point of actually voting, against the party meas ure after two months of exasperating delay and dickering in the senate. With this recent record be ran . for governor last year and was beaten by over 150,000. The senate which will vote for his suc cessor is republican by twenty-odd ma jority. Senator Murphy served the sugar trust and his own protected industries in the "hold up." He shared in the defeat ot last year, and this year his own county, which tw.o years ago gave a democratic majority ot 5,795, goes republican by 1,000. Smith of New Jersey, also served the sugar trust and insisted on McKinley duties for the pet industries in which he was interested. . New Jersey last year repudiated him by 48,000 majority electing a republican as his colleague in the senate, and this year elected a republican governor for the first time in more than thirty years. So much for Smith. Brice and Gorman stood out for duties on coal and iron ore in behalf of railroads or mines whose interests they served. They helped to '-hold up" the tariff reform bill, and their constituents have put them down. The next senators elected from Ohio and Maryland will be republicans, and both states have gone overwhelm" ingly tbe same way. The moral would seem to be that demo crats do not like trust agents, plutocrats or. bosses as senators, and that when the people want monopoly's work done they will elect republicans to do it. New York World. Average Tea Pounds Less. Every phase of the cotton market from the bull side has seemingly been brought to light and used with all possible effect but there is one point which has been passed over and which should be added to the bulls' reserve fund of arguments. It is an interesting point, as it is an ad ditional fact which goes to show really how short the cotton crop is. It is estimated that there is a deficiency of 160,000 bales occasioned by the man ner in estimating the crop. Two cotton mill men telegraphed a firm in this city last week to know why tbe weight of the bales shipped them was so reduced trom tbe average weight. Similar complaints have been beard ail the season- This put the firm to thinks ing, and upon making inquires among cotton men and ginners, they learned that tbe weights of all bales were largely reduced this year. The average weight of a bale of cotton is 450 pounds, but very few bales will reach that scale this season. Tbis tact is attributed to drought, it being almost impossible to get the usual number of pounds of cotton baled on account of its dry and light con dition. An old ginner remarked today that be had been unable to make a heavy bale tbis season. Complaints of this kind are numerous. It is estimated that at least, the av erage weight ot bales will snow a de ficiency of 10 pounds to tbe bale. With a crop estimate of 7,200,000 bales, there would be a tailing off of 160,000 bales ac cording to the usual methods of estima ting the crop. This is a deficiency of over two per cent. Raleigh Visitor. A Large Cotton Carrier. One of the largest vessels ever placed in the cotton trade between this country and Europe is the American, recently launched in Ballast and now en route to New Orleans. Her total cubio capacity is 587,220 feet, making her easily the biggest ship ever coming to New Orleans. She is 8290 gross tonnage, 475 feet long between perpendiculars, fifty-five feet beam, and depth of hold thirty-nine feet six inches. There are nine engines on her, and she is loaded through six hatches. Her water ballast is 1500 tons. She can carry 24,000 bales of cotton. The Puff and its Effect. It is more fun to see a man read a puff of himself in a newspaper than to see a fat man step on a banana peel. The narrow minded man reads it seven or eight times and then goes around and steals appropriates what copies he can. The kind hearted man goes home and reads it to his wife, then pays up his dues to the paper. The successful business man who advertises regularly and makes money by it, immediately starts to find the editor and then the two men leave the sanctum and walk silently and thought fully down the street together, the busi nessman taking sugar in his and they both eat a clove or two, and all life isf weeter, and peace settled down on their hearts for the moment. Such is the experience of seed that falls upon different soil. Ad&ir County (Ja) Kicker. Supreme Court Decisions.
