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

into law of any Republican policy. In

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

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.

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.-

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
