The inccsage of the president will not
be more than half the length that was
reported. It will not exceed 13.000
words. In the mean time his opposers
in his party are suspected of setting a
trap for him. They are reported as
conspiring to forestall if possible his
message, to quote the Washington
special to the Baltimore Sun. by "com
mitting themselves and as many of
their colleagues as possible in opposi
tion to such features of the president's
policy as do not meet with their ap
proval before the message is delivered
"By opposing now certain proposi
tions they may antagonize the presi
dent in anticipation. Criticisms wnicn
they might not be willing to utter after
the president's message has been laid
before con CTess they may indulge in
now without being open to the direct
accusation of criticising the message
It is plain that the president will not
have a smooth sea this winter if he
dares to be In any sense a reformer, or
in any way interferes with the ne
farious plans of the robbers and per
sistent enemies of the people at large,
His only chance for easy sailing Is to
be submissive, receptive, quiet and
"easy to be instructed." The Sun says
that from expressions from republicans
In both houses, there will be a general
line of action which is thus given:
T. That there will be no general tariff
"2. That no reciprocity treaty will be
ratified by the senate the tendency of
which would be to reduce the profit of
any protected Industry.
"3. That the new Hay-Pauncefote
Isthmian Canal treaty shall be ratified.
"4. That a bill may pass both houses
authorizing the construction of the
great waterway to be controlled and

SIZE. CLIMATE AND RESOURCE OF
Recently the Messenger gave some in
formation concerning Alaska, based
upon a work the joint product of sev
eral writers wno made a voyage of
observation to that far-away land. We
purpose to supplement it with a few
edifying statistics. Up to now Alaska
is almost an unknown country, only a
part of it having been explored. Being
a part of the vast possessions of the
now American empire, Uncle Sam, it is
of interest to know something of its
size, etc. We get our figures from an
entertaining paper in "The Era" by Mr.
William C. Henderson, who has spent
months in that remote and cold region.
The Unite?! States paid $7,200,000 to
Russia for all of its possessions in
North America. The area of Alaska is
simply immense one fifth of the size
of the United States proper. It equals
in area the states of Alabama, Connec
ticut, Delaware, Indiana, Indian Terri
tory, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine,
Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi,
New Hampshire, New Jersey, New
York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island,
South Carolina. Tennessee, Vermont,
Virginia and West Virginia; or to that
of the British Isles, France, Germany,
Portugal and Belgium, together. The
liiglKst point on this continent is Mt.
CMcXinley, 0,460 feet. Its longest river
lrr Yukon is 2,500 miles in length. The
climate greatly varies and is influenced
by local conditions. For instance, that
of the Alexander archipelago as well as
the entire coast from the Chilcat coun
try 200 miles to the north of Sitka, and
extending as far south as Fort Simp
son. British Columbia, is milder than
that of many of the New England
. The following will interest:
'The mean annual temperature of
, Sitka, which fairly represents this sec
tion, Is 44.S0 degrees, with a mean sum
mer temperature of 56.6 degrees, max!
mum of 79 degrees, minimum of 3S de
grees. Mean winter temperature of 33
degrees, maximum of 56 degrees, mini
mum of -30 degrees.
"In the vast and almost unknown In
terior of Alaska, beyond the influence
of the "Kuro Siwo," the climate is arc
tic in the fullest sense of the word
There are but two seasons here; winter
and summer. The winter is of 8 months
duration, dry and. excepting certain
restricted localities, entirely free irom
'wind. The temperature descends as
low as -SO degrees (upon rare occasions
even -90 degrees has been reached),
with a mean of perhaps, -40 degrees."
There is great variety In its forma
tion. There are low sandy regions and
endless mountains. The skeletons of
the mammoth and the . mastodon
abound. In some sections shrubs,
grasses, wild flowers, and berries exist,
creeks and rivers abound everywhere.
The most prominent rock formations
are those of sandstone, shale, slate, coal,
conglomerate,: limestone, schist and
basalt. The white spruce is the univer
sal tree. Its average height Is 35 feet.
In some places it reaches 100 feet ana
h.t base Is three feet in diameter. Other
growths are found. The flora contain;
200 species of animals and perennials.
tTZiere ars thirty; .varieties d grasses
and among them Ihe Kentucky blue
gross and others. Mr. Henderson says:
"I have seen meadows, well north of
the Arctic Circle, covered with grass
fully- five feet high. Wild parsinps
flourish extensively on the Aleutian Is
lands, and all over the country wild
cranberries, blueberries, currants, rasp
berries and a sort of blackberry exist
in considerable quantity. Their fruits
are perfectly preserved during the win
ter and. furnish abundant food for the
wild birds that flock thither in the
He writes of what may be done in
gardening. He says that Alahka ad
mits "of the successful growing of flax,
clover, asparagus, many garden vegeta
bles such as beans, beets, cabbage,
cauliflower and potatoes. Most of these
have been raised for years in the neigh
borhood of Sitka, where the subject has
received the closest atention. Quite
satisfying gardening operations have
also been carried on for several year?
at "Holy Cross Mission," on the lower
Yukon. Oats and barley have been suc
cessfully grown in southern Alaska,
but so far satisfactory crops of wheat
"and rye have not been realized."
The bear product is stupendous.
Think of bears weighing 2,000 pound3
and measuring twelve feet in length,
and of "desperate ferocity." The other
animals are the black bear, moose
carbou, mountain sheep, wolf both the
gray and black; wolverine, fox the
red, cross, blue, white and black or sil
ver grap specimens, lynx, land otter,
beaver, mink, marten; rabbit the com
mon and white, muskrat, marmot, por
cupine, sqirrel, weasal and field mouse.
But nowhere do they exist in any con
siderable numbers. The bears are the
road makers of Alaska.
The fur industry Is the most remun
erative and valuable. The furs are of
a higher commercial value than those
obtained in any other section of the
world. The fish output is important
and yields 45,000,000 pounds of the can
ned annually. He writes of the gold
seeking and suffering, how to keep from
freezing, the most dangerous time be
ing between seasons, when humidity
was very extreme, etc. He says the
climate is the least formidable and the
"insect plague the most formidable"
enemy to contest with.
In South Carolina the announcement
is made that Mr. James S. White 'is to
wed Miss Jean Sprunt, eldest daughter
of Rev. Dr. Alexander Sprunt, now of
Charleston, but former a well known
While crops are very short and there
Is ahead much distress for amny
people in some sections of the state,
there are cheering reports from locali
ties of success. Some one tells the
Charlotte Observer that Catawba
county has an unusual potato crop, and
that it is housed and in fine condition.
It is estimated that this crop alone will
fetch more than $50,000.
The Messenger gave recently the ex
cellent school showing in Vance county.
It is glad to see reported from remote
Hyde county in the east, a reassuring
report. In 1900, out of a total of 2,013
children of school age 1,970 attended
school, so that there were only 4S chil
dren in the county who did not attend
school at all. The average attendance
during the school term was 1,528. Hur

Rev. R. S. Webb, a very worthy min
ister of the Western North Carolina
Methodist E. conference, is dead. He
was an excellent Christian, and an
useful, efficient preacher. He was a
native of Orange county, we think.
He ioined the North Carolina confer
ence in 1859, at Beaufort. Dr. Frank
H. Wood, who is in poor health, we re

next year. Rev. John B. Williams.
Rev. Mr. Culbreth and one or two oth
ers, joining with him in the same class.
Rev. Paul J. Carraway was not of the
class as we see it mentioned, but was
already a member of the conference.
Mr. Webb was an amiable, lovable
man in character. He was in the min
istry forty-two years lacking but two
weeks. He leaves a wife and daughter,
Politicians are being interviewed as
to the best way for democrats to win.
The Messenger holds that the sure and
proper way is for the democrats to be
democrats, to stop quarrelling, to cease
to scramble for office, to remain faith
ful to fundamental principles, "to be
what you seem", and to antagonize the
corrupt, evil, ruinous, dangerous repub
lican party at every point, at every
turn, all the year round, and in all
years, off-years included.
The sugar beet can be successfully
cultivated in our . state. The state
chemist, Professor W. A. Withers, in a
bulletin stated that the "prospect for
the introduction of this industry into
the state is promising and the matter Is
well worth the attention of our people
in the western mountain counties." He
has made successful experiments in the
mountain section. It is stated by him
th3New York state sugar is made
from the beet and jin Louisiana from
cane, but it is not manufactured at an
points between these two states.
A week ago, on Sunday, a row oc
curred in Moore county between a white
man named Cameron and a negro
named Jim Davis. An account that
appeared in the Charlotte Observer
states that the negro was soon knocked
into insensibility. This aroused the
ipathy and fighting spirit of his
friend, McNair, who was likewise sub
dued and limped away from the con
fusion leaving" blood in his tracks. By
this time all Manly was hastening to
the battle ground. Colored men and
v;os!en, and white people of all sizes
and ages came together; rocks were
hurled by both rexes; clubs and razors-'
were used with violence; pistols were
discharged and the trouble resulted in.
a mob and race war. When the smoke
cleared away and the missiles had spent
their force the 'darks' retreated while
the whites took care of the wounded."
Davis later spoke in great disrespect
of the white women, and then he was
given just ten minutes to vamose the
ranche. He obeyed promptly, and has
not been on hand since.
THE TARIFF IN THE CONGRESS.
As the time for the assembling of the
congress approaches it becomes more
certain that there will be a contest
waged over the question of a tariff re
form bill. The old party leaders of the
republican protection grab-alls, are re
solve to squelch all attempt to
touch their sacred darling, the Rob
Roy system of robbing and take what
you can. Babcock and any other re
publican who moves in the matter of
tariff alteration or reduction is to be
sat down upon without mercy. Their
attempt to relieve the country of un
necessary and absurd high tariff rate3
upon certain articles is to be met .with
united finances and resistance. The
trusts must not be interfered with and
the great robber tariff must be kept on
robbing. That is to be the fiat and the
outcome. But it is said that the re
formers will not be downed so easily
that Babcock and his followers will
make their fight, and they feel encour
aged as they can count on the support
of the democrats (save of course
that little protection contingent
who have stolen the "livery"
of democracy to serve the re
publican "devil with") in any battle
for reform that they may make in be
half of the people at large against the
villainous unholy trusts, and the re
morseless, greedy, devouring benefi
ciaries of the trusts, the arch-enemies
of this country. Let the battle be set
and may the right prevail.
A REMARK All LK NEW ENGLAND
One who glances over even a porliju
of the northern newspapers will be im
pressed with the constant discussions
of the south, its interests, its short
comings, its dense ignorance and preju
dice, its steadfastness of purpose and
principles, and its commercial aspects
and openings. But yesterday the Mes
senger referred to the hostility and
vetupertations heaped upon this section.
But now and then you wili meet with
a friendly opinion, or a positive com
mendation. Not often will you be
cheered by such recognition of facts
and such cordial approval of present in
tentions as well as of past duties faith
fully performed under great difficulties
and vast sacrifices made in behalf of
sympathy and good will for the negro
race. Even such noble, generous benet
factions are seen and written of with
admiration. Lately we met with an ex
tract from an observant, beneficent,
wise northern man's opinion of the
south. He is a Bostonian at that.
strange to say, and his viqws are not
the views of his people, but neverthe
less truthful and just. He shows a
proper appreciation of the south in its
past course and benefactions. It re
veals a writer not living in a little shell
or peering through a little key-hole at
the universe. It is the opinion of an
independent, vigorous mind that appre
hends correctly facts and actions and
has boldness to proclaim them. This
writer is one in ten thousand. He is
generous and open and brave, and the
south will appreciate his words of ad
miration and defense. The opinion of
the Norfolk Virginian-Pilot is correct,
as we think, and in harmony with
what the Messenger has said again and
again. The Norfolk paper reflects the
sentiments of every genuine man of the
south. We cite a passage from it:
"We have never seen the case stated
more forcibly or succinctly by any man,
north or south. It is precisely the
view that intelligent southerners gen
erally have come to take of the matter
of recent years. : They have come to
understand that there is a class of
northerners, noisy out of all proportion
to its size, whose minds may not be en
lightened by reason and whose malice
neither time nor generous southern
achievements can soften. And, follow
ing upon this conclusion, the south's
temper toward this class has changed
from indignation to contemptuous in
difference. "It is a literal fact that the south has
utterly ceased to care for the chronical
ly hostile critictsm of the professional
enemies at the north."
The subjoined extract from the un
known Boston writer, Is taken from a
pamphlet which he wrote on the Roose-Velt-Booker
that marvellous dining and wining in
the president's little family circle. Our
northern friend and defender says:
"It Is time that the people of the
south realized how hopeless it is to
win the sympathy of certain circles at
the north. The republican fanatics
the rightful heirs to that band of char
lantans who plundered the south in her
poverty, oppressed her in her weakness,
and mocked at her in her calamity
the contributions of the southern peo
ple to the prosperity of the nation are
without significance. It means noth
ing to them that for thirty-five years
the south has fought the most heroic
battle in human history it means
nothing that the south has supported
itself, paid promptly its share of the
national debt incurred by Its ccaxion;
contributed enormously each year to
the payment of federal pensions: de
veloped a system of education for boh
races, giving one-third of the educa
tional fund to the negro schools; open
ing up highways through the land;
wisely discharging the. obligations of
and devoting itself with intelligent loy
alty to the interests of the whole coun
try. To fanatics at the north who,
blinded by partisan iage. have never
kept a pledge or obeyed al law. the
south is but a land to be desdbiled. and

Kinston Free Press: Intelligence
reached Kinston this morning of a very
sad and horrible occurrence in Wood
ington township this county, yesterday
afternoon. Miss Lena Turner, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Kit Turner, while no
one was in the house but herself and
aged mother, told her mother that she
was going to commit suicide. She se
cured a bottle of carbolic acid that was
kept in the house, for the purpose of
administering to stock and before she
could be prevented by her mother drank
half of the contents of the bottle. Mr.
Turner, working about 200 yards from

came immediately, but when he arrived
so quickly the deadly drug got in its
work, the unfortunate woman was un

Newbern special, 23rd, to Ralegh
Post: While returning to his home,
near Fowle, in Jones county, and about
nine miles from Maysville, Godfrey
Webber was shot Thursday night a few
j'ards from his front gate and lived
about one hour. His assainant was
armed with a shoterun and fired from
a distance of ten yards. The first shot
only wounded Webber, when a second
shot poured a heavy load of buckshot
into his side. The man staggered inside
his gate, fastened it and then fell, and
was found by his family, who were
alarmed by his cries. This afternoon a
coroner's jury was held and a verdict
was returned that Webber came to his
death by a gunshot wound inflicted by
Cyrus Dixon, the motive for shooting
being an Intimacy that existed between
