The Times, Richmond's leading paper, is one of the most enterprising n r . 1 as wen as one 01 tne auiest papers m the South. It has many of the ele ments of a really "great" paper, and n it keeps on at the rate it is proincr it is destined in the not distant future to justly merit such distinction. Last Sunday's edition of sixteen pages, small type, containing a review of the trade and enterprises of the city, was a mer itorious piece of journalistic enterprise. The well filled columns of the Times show that it is receiving the splendid recognition at the hands of the busi ness men of Richmond which its emi nent services and progressive spirit en title it to. STAND BY HOME. There is no more important action that citizens can take for the advance ment 01 a town than to home enterprises. One of the strongest portions of the fabric composing the base upon which a town rests is this. Any enterprise which is dependent upon local support or which local support helps in any way is entitled to its full and entire, free and unstinted share, for upon the enterprises rests the town's future. Every dollar that is spent outside of the town for the purposes which might have been met by leaving that money in the town is a serious mastake. The people who do not foster and en courage legitimate home enterprise entire cannot expect that enterprise to continue on ioreign capital coming in and keeping it up. If you want it to be a success, then you must make it so by proper encouragement. We do not wish to place ourselves upon record as opposing the invest ment of money in other places as well as your own, for such is not our opinion, but we do hold that the first preference even in this should be given to home, provided the balance is anything like even. Speculation has never yet built a town nor will it ever, but when it comes down to erecting houses, taking stock in manufacturing enterprises, buying goods or groceries, advertising, then the town in which one lives should receive its full share before money is is carried elsewhere. Houses cannot be put up, manufac turing plants run, stores continue, newspapers live without receiving from the citizens of their town a united cup port, the better for every one con cerned. Durham Sun. The above is a solid chunk of truth and should be carefully read and studied. It is just such action as this this going away from Salisbury to purchase what can be bought here that is keeping the town back and that will operate against it just so long as the pernicious practice is followed. A reform isneeded and it is needed badly. Nothing that can be procured at home should be ordered from any other town, no matter where that town is. Our business men have their money invested here, they help to keep up the city and support its insti tutions, they always do their full share ol public work and contribute liberally to all public and charitable objects and it is no more than their due that they in turn should be patronized by the people who are benefitted by their business. The plan of purchasing from vuCi tuns is not economy. Our cusiness men have the same lacilities for purchasing as those of other towns have, and they can give as good induce ments to patrons as any one else can give Nothing is gained, therefore, by the practice. Probably an excuse will be rendered that certain things cannot be purchased heie. That may be true but the needed articles can be brought here and will be brought here if a demand iscreated for them. Salis bury can never be built up by this kind of work and it should be the aim of every one who loves the town to improve it. Soend every cent of the money you make out of Salisbury among Salisbury people, encourage more enterprises to be brought here, patronize home industries, that help to support you and the town will grow Salisbury Herald. The Petersburg Index-Appeal 'comes to us in anew dress of type, changed in form. It is now a six instead of a four page paper, six columns to the page. This is an indication ol pros perity which the Gold Leaf is pleased to note. i The Germantown Independent says : Rudini found that in swapping diplo matic saliva with Secretary Blaine he was talking to a man who knows what to say and how to say it, and he has come to the conclnsion to snui up. This is too bad. Uncle Blaine was ust beginning to get warmed up." Whatever the views President Polk entertains on the subject we do not believe the farmers of North Car olina in the Alliance as well as those outside of it, take kindly to the Third party idea. We contend that they can get all the relief from the Democratic party that can be got from any parly. NEW CHILEANS' POLITICAL CRIMINALS. The Baltimorcan commenting on the report of the New Orleans grand jury on the result of its investigation into the lvnchincr nf the asssaisins of Chief of Police Hennessey, says: The report of the New Orleans grand jury on the lynching of the eleven Italian prisoners in that city on March 14th, is precisely what might have been expected from all the cir cumstances connected with that occur rence. It was evident from the first that the attack on the parish prison and the execution of the assaassins of Chief of Police Hennessey was not simply the act of a few reckless people carried away by the fury ot the mo ment. It was in all respecls too unan imous, too deliberate, too orderly, too restrained, too respectable, to be classed with the work of an ordinary mob. It was not an outbreak aeainst law so much as an uprising in its favor, movement to vindicate its magesty not to lessen or weaken it. The so called mob was in fact composed of the representatives of all the law abidinz and law supporting elements t in New Orleans. The only persons who were absent from it were the pro fessional -criminals and those who live on the border-land ot crime, like the ward politicians, who, according to the report of the grand jury, were hand in glove with Detective O Malley. All this was evident from the first the grand jury's report was not necessary to assure the country that the respect able people of New Orleans were a unit in their approval of the justice meted out to Hennessey's murderers. But the light thrown by the grand jury's report on the secret history of the trial and on the corrupt relations existing between politicians, detectives and the murderous criminals of the Mafia, reveals in a startling manner the extraordinary character and extent of the evils at which the people were at length forced to strike without re gard to the regular processes of law. What this report makes clear is that the failure to convict the prisoners was due to the corruption which had per meated and honey-combed the politics of that city. O'Malley, the detective who is credited with "fixing" the jury, has had for years a criminal record that should have made all honorable and reputable men ashamed to be seen in his company. Yet he was in "part nership" with a regular or irregular member of the bar, and went in and out of the tribunal of justice with the easy air of a man who had many friends at court. That he had friends there is shown by the fact that the special lists of talesmen were in his possession almost as soon as they were issued, and in spite of the orders of the judge, and by the promptness with which he was made acquainted with all the State's movements in the case. Ward politicians and city officials did not blush to be seen in his office, but seemed honored by his acquaintance and came to him like suitors begging for favors and assistance. How was it that a man that should have been in the penitentiary could wield such influence? The answer is simple enough. He accomplished it in the same way that he persuaded the jury to acquit the eleven murderers by bribery ; in the same way in which the Louisiana Lottery Company has secured what it wants in that State ; in the same way in which corporations and combinations in other cities Baltimare, for instance secure valu able privileges and franchises. He did not, however, create the conditions which made his methods successful, though he was an apt scholar in utilizing them. If local politics in New Orleans had not been debased and corrupt, such a man would never have been tolerated so long. He simply flourished like a vile weed in a congenial soil. He found ward and city politics in the hands, to some extent at least, of men who were for sale on every occasion to the highest bidder, and he made it worth their while to become useful to him, as he was to them when it served his purposes. Not the least important, if indeed, not the most important lesson to be drawn from the New Orleans tragedy is the necessity of pure local government, and if that lesson is heeded, the eleven Sicilians will have performed a most valuable service to this country. Soci eties of murderers and assassins are dangerous and execrable, but far more dangerous, far more formidable is the insiduous political corruption now so general in American cities, that de grades public oftice to a subject of pri vate bargain and sale, and which uses official position as a means of filling the pockets ot the incumbent. The ex perience of New Orleans shows that there is nothing at which men of this character will stop to maintain their held on office, and that they will con sort with criminals and become the defenders of murderers if they find it to their advantage tado so. The man who will accept a bribe will not hesi tate to sacrifice public honor and public decency to private profit. Let Baltimore learn a lesson from the ex perience of New Orleans.

A telegram from Baltimore gives the following: All of the plaid mills of North Car olina and 8o per cent, of the mills of South Carolina and Georgia have agreed to place all of their products through the Cone Export and Com mission Company, a corporation or ganized under the laws of New Jersey, with a capital of $1,900,000, and headquarters in New York city. The preident is Moses H. Cone, of Balti more. The matter is of interest to dry goods dealers generally, as well as all who handle the goods, and the combination will increase prices. IN HENDE JSON, X. C. Few Personal Points What Alliance Sleeting: Did . the Mr. W. E. Dibrell, editor of the Richmond Southern Tobacconist who attended the recent meeting of bright tobacco planters, and " took in " the banquet given them by the Board of Trade, writes as follows about his visit and what he saw and heard: An invitation from the Trade of Henderson carried us there last week. We were loath to leave, We par ticipated in a feast of fact and fancy "fixings for the five hundred the Hen derson Trade ted, of the Farmers' Alliance fraternity chiefly. W. E. Gary makes a good gener alissimo. When Owen Davis gets out of a job he has our recommendation as head-waiter anywhere, while John and Dave Cooper are just indispen sable when Henderson folks have the honors in hand, and Jack Taylor is so popular that he got 59 votes out of ax voters present ("the most unani mous mainritv we ever heard of) fot town commissioner. Henry Cannon chews a new brand of Horse Pasture tobacco, and thereby hangs tale. Buck Walker had his factory full and was waiting for seasons. S. & C.Wat- kins' three stores would do credit m business and bulk and variety to a city of size. Manager Sam. Watkins is posted on every plant irom tne town pump to the great railroad enterprise in town, township, county, and State, and is never too busy to be courteous to strangers or friends. The Dibrell and Walker insurance claim hangs fire in upper courts ; the Georgia Home being the only stickler that is stubborn in settling. D. Y. Cooper rules in the warehouse realm with right and reason, and if we had a system of sales to adopt it would be his unmodified or unaltered; there is no hitch or halting on that warehouse floor. Like clock work Cooper cleans the floor of piles sold, he handles every pile himself, not mechanically, with an eye to business and bids, but and he makes them or gets them. Regarding the crop, it is three weeks or more late. Cool nights, hot days, and dry weather invite the festive fly, and rain is badly needed. Planting iq moderate, few Dlants well up. The crop will depend upon seasons. The verdict is 80 per cent, of 1890 crop sold, and farmers are selling their trash and scrap. Breaks very small; prices unchanged; few piles reach 30 cents. Fillers and green tips rule high at 7 to 9c, smokers stiff, anything brings 5c; wrapper, reasonable and good; some rich mahoganies are offered. Cutters are ruled by the American Tobacco Co., and 22 cents is accounted a lull price. We met at Cooper's Mr. Elias Carr, Jr., of Edgecombe county, a gentleman-planter, by instinct and educa tion and lineage, a planter of tobacco and cotton. Mr. R. H. Cotton also sold at Cooper's. He sold some in Richmond and some at Rocky Mount; the latter market paid $62 and over for part ot his 50,000 lbs. raised. He pocketed $1100 at Cooper's, $100 more than he expected, and wentjhome pleased. He will plant for 100,000 pounds this season. Edgecombe county reports plants set a week ago and flourishing. Tobacco pays better than cotton all say. THAT ALLIANCE MEETING. There were 350 delegates in session they represented thirty-two tobacco counties of Virginia and North Caro lina from the lattef twenty one and the former eight delegates. There was harmony in this husbandary. They denounce the trust business, and the American Tobacco Co. especially, as their greatest enemy and that openly. The secret sessions did not leave us in doubt. The Alliances are prepared to join ranks with the leaf men to defeat monopoly. It is a business, not for politics or buncombe, but in sisting upon their own and the dealers riehts to live, without dictation of values, high or low, on their staple product, v They comprehend fully the present situation, and they antic ipate future results, and will now work for amalgamation with those whose interests are identified with theirs. They will join hands heartily with honest men in mutual plans of protec tion, and will invite the tobacco trade organizations to formulate plans and mutual co-operation, in lawful and ex pedient means to counteract the dan gers that menaces them both.

The annual meeting of the Hender son Younz Men's Christian Associa tion was held m the rooms last Mon day night. Interesting reports of the work done during the last year were presented by the officers and different committees, and officers were elected for the coming vear. . The occasion was one of the most enjoyable that has ever been known in the rooms. Invitations had been issued to members to attend, each with one friend, which brought about 130 people together. The business was inter spersed with choice music and a com mittee of ladies, under the able leader ship ot Mesdames Southerland, Strause and Sprunt. served elegant reiresh ments. Mrs. J. M. Rhodes, of ihe Littleton Female College, a Henderson favorite, sang several songs in the most captivating manner and was obliged to respond to an encore. The instru mental duet piano and violin by Miss Stephens and Mr. Stephens was particularly good as was also the reci tation by Mrs. Henry Perry. The male quartette Messrs. F. R. Harris, Diggs, Smith and P. S. Harris was highly praised. President Harris' report of the year's work was well written and well received and showed the Association to be in a most vigorous state of use fulness. Dr. F. S. Harris, the painstaking and faithful treasurer, presented an exhibit of the finances as follows: receipts: From former Treasurer, $ 7.37 From pledges made at Pearson meetings (for 1890), 208.40 From pledges made at Conven tion for 1891), $20.16 MemberHhip dues, 164.90 Other sources. 16.81 Total, $1,317.84 EXPENDITURES: Rent, $206.67 PaidJ.lt. loung(eashadvanced) .4.08 State Committee, 65.00 Inte natiosal Committee, 7.65 Fuel, 24.55 Papers, &c , for reading room, 34.60 Alterat:ons in rooms, 64.50 Stationery and priuting, 45.43 Postage, 10.52 Fu' liture (insurance, gymnasium outfit and electric lamps), 146.38 Lights, 56.17 Salaries, 510.51 Janitor, 24.35 Total, fl,270.41 Balance in Treasury, 47.48 Mr. J. R. Young reported for the spiritual work. Statistics have been kept only for the last six months of the year, but they showed a good work done. Eight young men have been converted in the meetings of the Asso ciation, five of whom uuited with the ; city churches, one prefers a church not j represented here and the other two were strangers in the city and could not be followed up. The most encour aging feature, however, has been the growth of the spiritual life of the work ing members. Mr. Jas. S. Poythrcss presented the report of the membership committee, as follows: During the year just past the rules a"bout the payment of dues have been changed which resulted in a most rad ical change in the manner of counting members. At first all who had ever been elected were counted as members until they left the city, died or re quested to be dropped from the roll, no matter whether they ever paid one cent of dues or not. This was an injustice to those who did pay and was also more or less dishonest to the public, as it counted the Association larger than it had a right to be. At the 1st of May, 1890, we find that there were 94 names on the books, many of whom had been there three years. Of this number 25 had never paid one cent to the Association. GO had paid sums ranging from 13 cents up and only 9 had paid their dues in full to that time, however, 13 who had never paid anything and 33 who were in arrears paid up in full during the year. Our practice now is to require the payment of dues strictly in advance. When a member fails to renew at the proper time he is dropped from the list until he does pay. A member is never in arrears, for if he is in arrears he is not counted a member. He has no membership ticket and is not entitled to the privileges of membership. The member who intends to pay and only asks a little indulgence we continue the privilege to him for awhile as a matter of courtesy ; his name, however, does not appear on the list of members and he is not counted in making up the reports. The total membership of the Associ ation to this date, May 11, 1891, is 106. 78 are members of churches and 28 are not. Contributors of more than $2.00, 61 Honorary members (Pastors), 5 Complimentary members, 9 $2.00 members, 20 Boy members, 11 Total, New members joined during '91, Members who have left town, Every friend of the Association contributes more than $2.00 per 106 56 3 who year 10 me support 01 tne association is given the membership ticket. Con tributors of $20.00 or more have the privilege of giving a limited number of tickets to their friends. The committee has been given the privilege of present ing special 30 day tickets to young men coming to the city to live. Brief reports were also presented from other committees after which the following officers were elected: President Dr. F.R. Harris; 1st Vice President Wm. V. Savage ; 2nd Vice President N. B. Thomas ; Secretary J. H. Bribers ; Treasurer Dr. F. S. Harris. The following fifteen men lypre elected directors: Baptist Church W. T. Stainback, W. V. Savage and R. E. Zimmer. Episcopal Church R.
