Over six thousand dollars were expended on the streets last year. That's the hun dred dollars a month. The money was squandered for the most part. Oxford and Charlotte have rock crushers and they are yoirg to have solid and substan tial streets. 11 THE 1VROPEK CAPEK. Mu. James 3Ianning this morning said that it was his opinion that Durham could not make a better investment at this time, than to buy a rock crusher and improve the streets. He claimed that more money was spent each year in fill ing up holes on the streets of Durham, than two rock crushers would cost. The rock crusher would give U3 solid and permanent streets ; the labor thrown away each year on the roads would be saved, and in a short lime we would have streets equal to any place in North Carolina. 'Suike Angiek thought his position right, and Clekk Gkeex said that he strongly supported the proposi ton. The Gloue then took occasion to interview about a naif hundred tax payers and they all heartily agreed that it was the proper caper. These straws are thrown out for a pointer to the new council, which was elected largely on the cry of progression The plea that we have no money to spend now, is met by Mn. Manning's state ment, which cannot be denied, that more than enough money is absolute!' squan dered for temporary repairs than would oe expended for a crasher. The streets are in a d plorable condi tion. and this spring is he time to act Will our city fathers catch the idea in the right place and proceed? TIIK PANIC. It seems that there is a sure enough panic on in New York to day, and of course it is hard to tell where it will go before the end is reached. The last real panic in 1872 swept over the entire country and banks were closed in thou sands of towns. It is understood that the panic on now will not be general, but will be confined to New York and a few big dealers who have overreached themselves. It is safe to say that Durham will feel no effects of the tight money market except in a general way. So keep on whistling and talk for a rock crusher. I'LKNTV OF liACKIJONi:. The decision of Governor Flower in refusing to grant executive clemency to Carlisle W. Harris, shows that the executive of New York possesses, in an admirable degree, the moral stamina so often wanting in other governors. It is hard for a governor or for any man to resist the crying appeals of a dis tressed, crushed and heart broken mother, asking that her son be not electrocuted and begging for what seems the appar ently little mercy of sending him to prison for his natural lifetime. It seems, in deed, that there would be but little solace or comfort for her to know that her boy must forever remain in a felon's cell, and yet she begged and plead for that, to her, sweet boon. The governor, knowing and dreading the responsibility, appointed a compe tent commissioner to take new testimony, and himself gave much time and thought to the case. Yet after all that the de fense claimed had been granted he failed to see why the jury, which had said that young Harris poisoned Helen Potts, had not tendered a true and just verdict. The truth was, and Flower was big enouch to see it, that Harris was a com mull vidian that he poisoned his wife in cold blood, and the law was plain. A jury of Harris' peers said under oath that he wa3 guilty, and now he will I e electrocuted. It is refreshing in these times when men in public p.-ice listen to the pLas of ''influence," who allow the tears of dis tracted ones to sway them from their duty, to see a governor stand firm upon t'.ie law and say that it shall be enforced Harris was no better than any mur de rer, although he hail position and some money. He should be electrocuted, if that is the law, and too much praise cannot be given the governor who had the back bone to say so, and say it out loud. TllK I'KNSION 1 KAI LS. A Washington dispatch to the New York Sun tells the whole story of the shameless pension fraud It says : There are great expectations of saving millions to the treasury by the revised adminis tration of the pension laws which is About to begin. There is nothing to prevent. With a new head of the bu reau, with new men for examiners, new methods and intentions, and no oce to interpose obstacles. It cannot be doubted that millions may be saved. No one questions that thousands of persons are drawing pensions whom the lawmakers never intended should draw them. The idea of "consequent i-d damages" has been made to aid th; pension agents, especially here. This has been the cover for stupendous schemes of getting money out of the treasury. Tens of thousands of persons are on the roll as pensioners who, had they not been stimulated to apply and then been taught to swear to machine statements, would never hare thought of applying at all. A single case very recently put upon record wiil illustrate. Ac enlisted man became a quarterraaster'sclerk, and as such served out the term of his enlistment and got his pay. A year or tw o ago he became poor. The idea of a pension never oc curred to him. An agent sqccessfully undertook the job of securing one on the ground of impaired condition in consequence of service in U13 war, though until just now ho has always been in good health. A proper administration of the law will stop all this. Great ingenuity has been displayed by pension agents in getting up cases like the above What they did not do, the pension bureau has supplied. The number of ca-es that await action in the treasury is very great. The papers as they came from the bureau would amount to many cart loads, and they are a?cumulating daily, although a full force of clerks is hard at work on them. Deserving soldiers are against thi wholesale business, started at the in stance of agents who have got rich, some of them having grown to be mil lionaires, by working on soldiers who have no reasonable claims to pensions It is believed that the time has passed when it will be unpopular among sol diers to refuse pensions for illegal rea sons. No doubt millions are illegally taken out of the treasury every year. It has been proposed to post in public places lists of pensioners, showing how many able-bodied men are drawing pen sious. The "dependent" list covers other millions, with very few solid reasons to back them. The new pension officials will be sup ported by public sentiment in granting none but meritorious pensions. The New York Sun favors the pri mary election to decide who will be postmaster. If such a vote was taken in Durham litxic Blackwell would be a winner all alon. About Jobs in the Postal Car,-.. Charlotte News. It is not as easy to get a position in the railway mail service now as it was when Cleveland was first president These places ate now under the opera tion of the civil service law, and exami nations are required, and before they can be secured the applicants must success fully pass the examinations. When the examinations are satisfactorily passed, the names of the persons are placed on the eligible list, and certificates are made along the lines of railway in which the people live. Congressmen can no longer obtain positions for their constituents There was no such restriction under the former Cleveland administration, but just before Mr. Cleveland quit the exec utive mansion, in 18S8, he extended the operations of the law so as to include the railway mail service. Mr. Harrison sus pended its operation for about two months long enough to keep out the democrats but Mr. Cleveland is much in love with the beauties of the system and he is living up to the non-partisan idea, and men of all shades of politics and with no politics at all are safe in their positions.

Chinese Women and Their Feet. The small footed Chinese women usual ly make their own shoes of bits of silk embroidered in gold and colors. Very dainty work they make of it. too, a shoe maker simply soling these bits of em broidery. In curio shops the globe trot ter may sometimes pick up a secondhand shoe. The tiny feet must be often and carefully washed and disinfected. Many of them are perpetually swollen and in flamed. There are women whose busi ness it is to go from house to house bathing, bandaging and treating these maimed members. A woman of rank has sometimes one amah whose special duty it is to care for her tiny but trou blesome feet. Chinese women who possess small feet are, while proud of them in a way, very shy and unwilling to exhibit them to foreigners. I had great difficulty in coaxing a Chinese woman of rani to give me a glimpse of her weo foot. Tbe four smaller toes are pressed under the sole, and the whole weight falls really upon the great toe in walking. The ankle is very large and distorted, but the leg is thin and wasted from inad equate exercise. The tout ensemble from a western point of view is far from beautiful if not absolutely repulsive.
