Mr. Chandler's plan does not propose any combination with the Populists, but his idea is that they will without price, to use bis own words, vote with the Republicans in the election of a President protempore of the Senate, and ine rearrangement of the committees, us giving the Republicans a ing majority in the Upper House. Bnt such prominent Republicans as Sermtn Sherman, Allison, Aldrich, and Hale, for instance, do not regard it as a wise thing assume a responsibility which comes rough the aid of Populists votes, nor are they in favor of attempting to direct legislation when the existence of a Demol cratic President prevents the enactment into law of any Republican policy. In the informal conferences which have already taken nl&oa hAtwoar. w vwu ivnu m g Democratic and Republican Senators, a scheme auite different from MV Chandler's proposition has been con- dered. It is that the old parties act together in a division of the patronage and committees, and thus form a combi nation which would effectually nullify the threat which the Populists are now making, that they can, by acting in con cert, control the Senate and command heir own terras, If this plan of combi nation, which is the conservative idea as pposed to the more radical propositron of Senator Chandler, should succeed, the chairmanships of the committees world be divided between the Republicans and emocrats. The position of President pro tem. would, in all probability, be conoeded to the Republicans, and the Senator selected by them would be elected by the combined votes of both sides of the chamber.

Voura 'jruiy, E B SPRINGS & Co, XinKioix FROM OUR RALEIGH CORRESPONDENT. Raleiqh.N. O., Nov. 19, 1895; Thus far. the State Auditor has re ceived returns of listed taxables from about 50 counties. The asdesBed valua tion of property holds up better than was expected. It seems doubtful that there is any falling off. ..vJv. There is quite a lot of friction between the silver and antissilver Democrats. John D. Bellamy; of Wilmington, put the' leeuDg m diudi words a day or two ago, when he said to your correspondent that the gold men had no business in theDem ocratic party and ought to- leave?1; it.' This language " has provoked some ' irot words from the golI Demdcrats. '' , Terr isaoou. as mucd animosity betweh the1 silver and gold Democrats how as there used to be between" the Dembcra'tS-add the Republicans, and this is' certainly 'say ing a great deal. All of this bodes no good to the Democratic party in "'North Carolina. Slim indeed are the thances of success for it in this State! Can Nortt Carolina with any degree r'oV accuracy1 be longer termed a DemCcraiiC State? It is a pertinent questidtr. r3tid the Dem6 crats themselves, who for these ten'y'eaTS past have4)een disintegrating, can answdr the question. v The farmers are said to be cancelling mortgages much more rapidly and earlier than U8uai.r This is a good sign." There are many dher indications of prosperity. Gov:sCarr,,ln a lettefto thVCNjevt: .York World two. months ago took; the grpus; mat mere , was not .mut-h prosperity in night, but now he thinks differently as witness, his thanksgiving proclamation: This 1895 is a mighty good year, aud thajt is the long and short of it. , , It is -probable that in a few. days ar rangemenls will be made : for- working about 100 convicts on. tho 'Durham & Charlotte railway. -Conyicts can i.do this sort of work much better than free laboiy. There has been quite a check in railway development in the past threo years. ; . There is denial of the statement thai Senator Butler ever wjjote.a letter saying he desired populists and silver Democrats to get together and form a., .new "party! He did desire all the silver men, irre spective of party, to get together but it seems that the populists are not. in favor; of this now, though they may,have been prior to tbe so-called State silver conven tion held here in September. . There, must surely have been in Senator Butler's heart the hope that he could form such, a party and lead it, too. ' Gov. Carr gives his assent to a change, of Superior courts by which Judge Hoke holds the December term of Buncombe,, two weeks, and Judge Robinson holds the. December terms, a week each, of Rich mond and Moore. There are rumoxs here, for the accuracy of which your correspondent cannot vouch, that Congressman Lock hart, is to be thrown out in the Sixth district and : tbat an examination of the vote in Robe eon county is to be the cause. . U. S. Marshall Carroll, who has been dangerously sick here," is out again. : The Supreme courtTs decjsion that rafllin? is trambliner will hit not a few people. That- form of amusement . i ex ceedingly prevalent in this State, some times in church, sociables. . An executive reward of lOOJs 6tfei;ed for D. W.

The commission is still wrestling with the problem of reducing and equalizing the tariffs of charges for telephone service in tne totate. Rev. Dr. Columbus Durham, one.of the. most zealous Baptists in this,. State,- died of heart disease, very suddenly, at his home here last Thursday night, aged 51. He was the life and soul of the movement against State aid to the University. He was a native or Cleveland county and leaves a wife and two children. He had tor several years been the Secretary of the Baptist State mission board.? His successor is appointed, until the Baptis't State convention meets, December-.5.- An official inspection of the recently completed Hendersonville & Brevard rail ay has just been made oy aiaj. james W.

At last earnest efforts are being made, here to secure funds sufficient to. purchase a worthy gift for presentation to 4.he Cruiser Raleigh. Very tardily is this done. The only money-thus, far raised? is secured by the editor of thje. Soutbportt Lerder, who deserves great-praise-, for what bo has done. .. Gov.

A great deal ot money has . been . lost;, some pb-r servant, people .say as much- as all the profits on the crqp in the State. It is .pitiful, but there appears to be no -way of cheoking the drain. The distillers of fruit brandy, certify that they have this season made, 17, 000 gallons in this revenue district. To get at the quantity actually made the reve nue people multiply the amount given in by five.

Rev T W Sloan, pastor of the Associate Re formed Presbyterian church of this city, has accepted a call to Troy, 8 C. Mr John Walter Miller, who was appointed as county commissioner by Clerk Morrow has declined the position on account of personal business. An entertainment for the benefit of the Thompson Orphanage, will be given, December 5lh, 6th a "Fair of Holidays" Christmas will be headquarters for Dolls, Toys, and all things tbat Santa Claus and children delight in.

Oo and help the "Orphans." The Justice Hardware Company on last Sat urday give a rather novel exhibit of Buck ranges. They advertised a "Buck Jr." range as a prize to the girl under twelve years of age who should bake the best biscuits on one of the ranges which had been set up in their store on Ji.ast lrade Street. There were seventy-five competitors and the results were submitted to the decision of competent lady judges. Tbat so many contestants should appear is remarkable, considering the age limit specified. Certainly a black eye was given to those who seek to dis parage the practical accomplishments of the u oderngirl. After examining and tasting the u.scuiis, me juagea unanimously awarded the prize to Miss Mabel Asbury, and the other girls all appeared satisfied with ihe decision While Mr. Justice could not give all a prize, he thinks he has started a fine cooking school. Dr. Chas. Brem, always a friend to children, presented little Adelaide Clarkson with a lock bracelet, her biscuits being considered next best. The judges were Mrs. F. W. Carnahan. Mrs. J. L. Davis, Mrs. George 8. Hall, Mrs. J. M. Hutchison and Miss Daisy Collett The State Board of Charities has started a movement against the balls and chains which the convicts of the State are compelled to carry, The board has provided as a substitute . a hobble, which Maj 8 W Reid hopes to Eee in troduced into Meck'enburg county. Its advan tage over the ball and chain, he says, is that it is more humane, and equally as efficient.
