IKOl, Men of Henderson, why stand ye idle when the golden opportunity of this town is rising in majestic grandeur each day, as does the mists of night disappear before orient appearance of Sol's rays in the East? Each individ ual must take a hand in raising a har ioct nr -ke the (too will wither and die, which deprives you and friend: of the results of a well harvested field Let your suggestions be impressed upon minds of energy and arms of work. No battle was ever won by the mere wag of the tongue ; but the grasp of the sword and charge by bayonet is necessary to victory. The same active work is requisite to keep your end of Henderson's advance onward. Will you be a man or falter? Which? Ky your works shall you be judged. An item in the naval appropriation bill-appropriates 25,000 and the use of a Government vessel for the purpose oi making deep sea soundings between San Francisco and the Sandwich Islands, in order to determine the feasibility of a cable between those points. A Pacific cable is doubtless much desired, but why should this Government be called upon to pay any part of its cost ? Why should the company which proposes to lay the cable be given financial assistance that was not extended to the Atlantic cable companies? This idea of private cor porations constantly calling on the Government for help is a most per nicious one. Such things were never heard of until the Republican party controlled the Government. The Elizabeth City Economist Falcon, commenting on a recent act of the Legislature, says : Any act of life is like a wavelet on the ocean, its wavelets reach remotest bounds. A man should count ten before he takes ang steps, a Legisla ture twenty. The present Legislature appears to do very little thinking. It is actuated chiefly by the desire to do something, it seems to us, leaving the result as a matter for future consideration. fjcvrHE Youth's Companion of the lina. r March is to have an important We wt. uon.

MF.X AND THEIR pfore the Leg ight out a "c subiect J lina TOCJIVK riJKE PASSES TO .11 Iir. For cheap demagoguey commend r .1 . . us to certain meniDers 01 me i.re.-ciu Legislature; and for the most flagrant inconsistencies some of the measures proposed ;an not Le discounted. A great racket has been raised about State officials, Judges, Legislators and irs using free passes on the rail roads and a bill was no sooner en acted into law prohibiting it, than an other is proposed compelling the rail roads to give passes to all State officers and Judges. Put common sense pre vailed, and the sceme didn't work. Instead a small allowance extra has ijeen voted the Circuit Judges by way of helping to defray their expenses in curred in traveling over the State in the discharge of their duties. This by way of introductory to the following extract from the State Chronicle s re port of the Legislative proceedings : Mr. Bellamy's bill requiring rail roads to furnish passes to Judges and State officers upon application of Sec retary of State, was taken up. Mr. Bellamy said: We are all agreed that the free pass system is not popu lar and must be abolished. Since the Constitution of 1868, the Legislature can modify charters. My bill will not allow an officer to receive passes by courtesy but by right. This bill amends all charters of railroads since 1868, and he knew that the Coast Line system, if it accepts anything at the hands of this Legislature, it will amend its charter. The question has arisen if we can pay our officers enough now to compensate them. The Rail road Commission bill prohibits officers from traveling on a free pass. This bill meets the situation, and saves a large annual sum to the Treasury. This is a solution of the free pass sys tem, the only solution, and gives it to ofiiccrs as a matter of right. It re moves all bias from the system. I am informed that the railroads of North Carolina will acquiesce in this. Mr. Williams never thought our Judj ;es could be corrupted by free passes. When railroads want to bribe men they pay the hard cash. He never thought it wrong for an officer to receive a pass. I don't believe that we have any right to compel railroads to carry any man. Mr. Bellamy in terrupted him and said that since 1868 we can amend all railroad contracts and the railroads owe gratitude to the State for liberal charters, and there is no wrong in making this requirement. He did not believe that they corrupted, but the tendency was to influence the holder. Mr. Williams continued and said that we could not apply this act to the Raleigh & Gaston, Wilmington & Weldon and the North Carolina Railroads. Mr. Aycock said that railroads often gave passes not intending to influence, but they had that effect. In one county that I know, the Clerk, Sheriff, Register of Deeds and Treasurer hold passes, and in that county a man who had acase for damage to stock could not have his case heard for some time. I do not say that the passes had any thing to do with this result, but some people thought so. The people desire to prohibit passes. He favored requir ing passes tor the Judges and State oliicers, but it not to apply to legisla tors. The railroads would not be in jured, and it would Le merely continu ing a system by right which is now done by courtesy. Mr. Lucas opposed the whole bill from principle. We cannot forbid free passes and make a great hue. and cry about it, and then by legislation attempt to compel railroads to give public officers a free pass. I have al ways taken free passes when offered me, and if I thought my people be lieved I would sell out for a free pass I would resign and go home. All this free pass business is cheap clap trap by which cross road politicians get into offices they are not competent to fill. The people do not want such legisla tion. It a railroad can buy you with a free pass, a 5 bill will get you as quick or quicker. God forbid that we should ever have men who would sell out for a pass or anything else. If we are going to do away with free passes, let us make every officer pay his way on the railroads. I am opposed to fall such little picayune legislation. I a gentleman takes a pass, he will not abuse it, but if he is a dirty puppy he will abuse it. SOMEWHAT LATITUDIXOUS. The Madison .News, discussing the bill recently before the Legislature proposing a reduction in warehouse charges for selling leaf tobacco, says this : The present Legislature seems to be 'ent on abolishing all such items as fit in anv private business. Whv -p on further and regulate 'is' charges at so much tier flyers' at so much per case i,v-ification of crime, and fl for merchants to cent, profit, and for rve only $1 per day Pet 'stock dealers er cent, above i mission mer- rges above 1 that cents sub Mrs. Chauncey Defew, it is said, pities any one who will gossip'about a scandal ; and the moment she hears a friend 'sact ions criticised, that moment she unceremoniously takes her depar ture for home. Exchange. Noble woman, perfect woman. Would that there were more like her. The Bellefontaine (Ohio) Exam iner says : Free silver coinage would be hard on those millionaires who own all the gold, but it would be a good thing for the farmers and laborers who produce all the wealth. Idaho is a very young State, but it can produce more United State Sena tors in a aiven time than any of its 0- . older Sisters. AISOUT THE LEGISLATURE Private Opinions Publiclj-Stated The Alliance and Politics Landlords and Tenants. Mb. Emtob: Suppose you wanted to go to Europe, were to go to ll mington, buy a ticket, put your trunks, &c, on board and get on yourself, but iust before the ship had let loose from her moorings, some one should come to you and say, "Why, you are not going to sea on that ship? The captain, mate, and in fact the whole crew are field hands." Off comes your baggage and yourself and yejur ticket is thrown away. You are not willing to risk your life on a ship manned by farmers who have never seen the ocean. Sen sible and correct. Last November, with tickets in hand, we, the people of North Caro lina, got on board the Alliance Ship of State, with Alliance-men as crew from captain to galley cook. Brand new ship and brand new crew. The sea is getting rough, the wind rising and the ship not obeying rudder, sometimes heading for the Maelstrom of Norway, then for the monsoons of the tropics. In the distauce the billows are larger, the sky indicates more storm, and I tell you, Mr. Editor, I am getting scared. Now I do not wish to say one word against the intelligence of this Legisla ture, for I believe it the equal of any I have ever seen in the Sate, and cer- ; tainly it is a body of fine looking men. There are but few if any demagogues among them (you know the little boy said a demagogue was a vessel which held whiskey, brandy aud other liquids) j and there likewise seems to be but few statesmen among them. Mr. Editor, this Legislature reminds me of an old woman in my native county (Hertford) wdio imagined herself a goose and sat .onji plate of biscuits three months trying to hatch them. They are simply mistaken, that's all. It seems to me the dark days of '08 did not exceed the dark days of '91. The liailroad Commission bill alone will do Xorth Carolina more harm than all the laws passed in the State in 1868. A. has a thousand dollars, and puts it in a store ; B. has a thousand dollars and puts it in a farm ; C, D, and others have a thousand dollars each and they put it in a railroad. Ought not Xorth Carolina protect all alike ? Why rob the railroad men and rob the State of railroads which might have been built ? Why rob the country editor of his pass the main half of the means by which he gains a living ? This bill forces half the State officers to resign and half the newspapers out of business or out of the State. Look at the action of this Legislature about the public printing whew, Sal, get away, don't bother me. Mr. Editor, had it ever occurred to you that this Legislature had but few farmers in it? I was there on Monday, the 23rd, ond I looked closely in both halls and I did not see half" a dozen farmers in all, and what few I did see were sitting away off in one corner among the publicans and sinners. I saw a large number of landlords. Xow, Webster says a landlord is the owner of land or houses which he leases to a tenant or tenants. Yes, yes, that's what I saw. I am sure I am not mis- j taken. Webster gives as one of the ' primary meanings of a former, "a ten- ; ant." Don't you see the farmers are j nut in the Legislature, that they never j were there, that they never will be : there? Ask the landlord legislators now in llaleigh assembled where the poor larmer is anu tney will tell you they left him on the back part of their broad acres, in a little one room house, 14x14, with one fireplace and one fry ing pan. They have never tried to borrow money at 6 or even 8 per cent. Xo, no. The landlord don't loan them money at any per cent, at all. All he loans them, under mortgage, is a little corn meal and western pork at the Dutchman's per cent two for one. Landlords ! landlords ! The smartest people in this country. I used to trade with them, but 'don't now. They are too sharp for me aud I never intend hereafter to trade much with a class of people who buy everything on credit and sell strictly for cash. How in the name of mercy can you keep up with such folks ? Look at the good legislation for the f 1 rri x. poor farmer! The poor farmer is promised from five to eight dollars per month (taking out rainy days) aud then paid in meal, pork, &c, at one hundred pur cent, profit. Listen, ye little fishes ! Should any person advise the poor farmer to leave this State, where he is getting small wages, and go to a State where he will get more, the per son so offending shall pay the sum of one thousand dollars. Was ever such legislation heard of? Was ever such injustice done a freeman? There are, according to my best fig ures, fifteeu thousand landlords in Xorth Carolina, and I now serve notice upon them that the Democratic party will follow them no longer, that the railroads, business men, professional men aud farmers will assert their rights. I compliment the conservative ele ment in the Legislature and the people will say to them, "Well done thou good ana laithtul servants." Respectfully, &c, J. A. IIarrell. ion. X.
