The Republican Vice-Presidential nominee is a new discovery, but more intimate acquaintance with him re veals the fact that he is a corporation lawyer. There promises to be more flops in this campaign than in any campaign for a good many years back. Party lines will not be strictly adheard to as heretofore we may expect. The Asheville Citizen is responsible for the declaration that the sum and substance of the obituaries of Congress just adjourned seems to fee that the Senate did nothing good and the I louse heljKrd. Saiij the Atlanta Constitution just prior to the St. Louis convention: "McKinley doesn't want to be nomi nated on Friday. Put what is the dif ference? The republicans who are for him know they are already whipped." The following remark about Ala bama's foremost citizen in the Atlanta Constitution is well meiited. It says: "We don't know whether we'd prefer to see Morgan vice-president or secre tary of state. 1 le's a big enough man to fill both positions at once." In Duplin county a new species of tobacco worm has appeared, and owing to the difficulty of extermina tion it promises to be a serious enemy to the tobacco industry. Reference is made to this elsewhere, and a method suggested for destroying this new pest, a species of caterpillar. Let the to bacco planters be on the lookout for it. The Republican .National Conven tion at St. Louis last week nomi nated Win. McKinley, Jr., of Ohio, lor President, and Garrett A. Hobart, of New Jersey, for Vice-President. The platform declares unequivocally for the single gold standard. ThU plank was protested against by Sena tors Teller, Cannon, Dubois and others and upon its adoption they walked out of the convention. The New York "orLfs Washington correspondent takes the ground that the sentiment for free coinage oi silver is deeper than the most sanguine sil verite has any idea. He cites case after case where manufacturers and others favor it, but are afraid to say so on account of the money lender holding up his paper. This is thc more significant from the fact that the World is a rabid gold bug. Since fat Tom Reed, of Maine, failed to knock down fHe presidential nomination persimmon at St. Louis last week, an exchange taunts him with the following: "In the memorable billion dollar Congress, Springer one day exclaimed, 'I would rather be right than be President.' Tom Reed replied: You will never be either.' It's now Springer's turn to laugh." We have heretofore been rather fa vorable toward Stevenson for Presi dent. Now we are not. We knew that he had been non committal on the money question but regarded him as being friendly to silver and in sym pathy with the masses. But the talk of his being championed at Chicago by the gold standard crowd backed by Wm. C. Whitney and Wall street bankers, has settled the business as far as we are concerned. We take it as a pretty safe rule to go in the oppo site direction of which they lead. The bicycle industry is vastly great er than most people have any idea of. Just think of over 100,000,000 being spent in this country alone for "bikes" last year. That is the estimate given out. No wonder there has been such a falling off in the demand for and price of horses. This year it is pre dicted that this amount will be doub led, and yet people are crying h3rd times. Chicago alone expects to turn out 400,000 wheels of all grades and descriptions. Chicago is to-day the greatest wheel center in the world, New York second and Indianapolis third. Electric Bitters. Elei'tric Patters is a medicine suited for any season, but perhaps more generally nettled, when the languid, exhausted feel ing prevails, when the liver is torpid and sluggish and the need of a tonic and alter ative is felt. A prompt use of this medi cine will act more surely in counteracting and freeing the system from the malarial poison. Headache, Indigestion, Constipa tion, Dizziness yield to Electric Hitters. 60e. and 31.00 per Imttlo at Melville lor eev's Drug Store. IJy the way, we do not see that big advertisement of the American To b.u ;o Company in some of our ex- I changes any more. Has the order been countermanded by the agency that placed it? We suspected as much by the wording of the contract. They have a shrewd way of obtaining yearly rates and doing transient advertising on same. In this country of ours there is no limit to a man's opportunities lor mak ing a name for himself, in one way or another. Only a few short months ago Mark Hanna was unknown to lame. Today his name is on every one's lirs and he is one d the best known men in the country. Politics and a barrel did it. If McKinley should fail to re ward Hanna in the event of his own election he will not be doing his duty by an uncompromising friend and un scrupulous politician. Nor would he fulfill the expectations and anticipa tions of the aforesaid Mr. Hanna. The marriage of young Cornelius Vanderbilt and Miss Grace Wilson, daughter of Richard T. Wilson, one of the leading bankers of New York, has been postponed owing to thc illness of the prospective groom. This probably means that the nuptials will not take place at all. The parents of the young man are bitterly opposed to the match, owing, it is said, to the dis paragement between the ages of the young couple, while the Wilsons are urging it. Miss Wilson is eleven years older than the young heir to the Vanderbilt millions. She has been in New York society for something like twelve or fifteen years, while her pros pective husband has barely attained his legal majority. We have received Volume 1, No. 1, of the Guilford Herald, published and edited by Mr. W. M. Sherrill, at Greensboro, N. C. Mr. Sherrill is Secretary of the North Carolina Press Association, and is a graceful writer and a thorough newspawer man. Winston Tobacco Journal. This gentleman is a brother of the Secretary of the Press Association, Mr. J. 1). Sherrill, who is editor of the Concor. Times. Mr. W. M. Sher rill was editor of the Lexington Dis. patch, until he sold that piper recently THE ONE CHEAT ('l ESTlOX. The following article written by the eminent historian, John Clark Rid path, giving his views on the financial question, will be read with more than passing interest because of the ability, character and antecedents of the au thor. Mr. Ridpath has always been a Republican. He says: " There is just one great question be fore the American people and that is whether they will be counselled by the international gold conspiracy, having its bifurcations in London and New York, to transact their business, and in particular to pay their debts, with a cornered dollar worth two for one, fraudulently substituted for the dollar of the law and the contract, or whether they (the people) will reclaim their right to transact their debts according to the terms of the contract and accord ing to justice. "It is said by emissaries of the gold propaganda that they who advocate the restoration for our coinage and money to the exact condition which it held prior to the act of 1S73 are dishonest; that they wish to coin 50 cents' worth of silver into a dollar and compel creditors to accept that in lieu of an honest dollar. Than this there never was a greater sophism and falsehood. What the people and what they intend to do is to coin a hundred cents' worth of silver, that is, a dollar's worth, that is 3714 grains of silver, into a dol lar, and by that act to break the cor ner on gold and reduce the exagger ated purchasing power of that metal to its normal standard. "If any man say that 371 grains of pure silver are not a dollar's worth let him be challenged with the question whether that amount of uncoined silver will not purchase as much of the aver age of 25 of the great staples of the American market, including real es tate and labor, as the same silver would purchase 25 years ago. Let him an swer that truly, or forever afterward hold his peace. As a matter of fact the uncoined silver in the American dollar will buy more of the average staples than the same would buy in 1S75. "What then? The limited supply of gold in the world has been cornered by those who own it. They are few very few and the people are mil lions. The price of the cornered gold has advanced more and more, until it has become worth almost two for one. 11 the while coined gold has con cealed the fallacy that is in it. The gold eagle still proclaims itself 10, although it has advanced in purchas ing power until it is nearly $20. Un der this obscure and fraudulent pro cess all productive industries have been crushed to the earth. They who labor in the fields and shops have been vir ually ruined." CLARK FOR VICE-PRESIDENT. That was a very handsome compli ment paid to Justice Clark yesterday when the- Wake county Democratic convention endorsed him for Vice President hy a rising vote. It was ap propriate that his home county should express its interest in his candidacy. Assurances of support from Arkansas and other States have been received, and there is no reason why North Car olina should not secure his nomination as it did Stevenson's four years ago.

We read with intense, unrepressed delight the "Oration" delivered on Maryland day at the International Exposition, Atlanta, Ga... December 7th, 1895, by William Urwick Murk land, D. D., "Orator of the Day." We may not doubt that it was the brightest the most beautiful, the loft iest conception, the most elegant and felicitous in expression of all that was spoken in the Gate City of the South during its memorable Exposition ex tending .through months. We read ten or fifteen years ago an oration by Rev. Dr. Richard S. Storrs, a New Englander, and Congregational, and wrote that so far as we had then read it was the best, the most enjoyable, the most eloquent of all oritions by an American. We have had yet no occasion to change our opinion to recast our julgment. The late Col. Duncan K. McRae read our copy, and was so captivated he bought a copy lor himself when in New York. He agreed with us in opinfon and said if he were to mark its fine passages he would mark around the Opening and closing paragraphs of the oration thus embracing all of it. We much incline now to the opin ion, and it is more than a fortnight since we read it, that the most finely wrought, the most classical, the most impressive and noble oration we have read by a Southern man in thirty years, if not longer, is the one by Dr. Murkland. It is upon a high plane of thinking, and is elaborated and adorn ed by the cunning hand of a master. The sentiments are so broad, so gen erous, so elevated, so inspiring, even thrilling, and there are such exquisite touches of pathos and patriotism, of love of Southland and its undying memories, such a constant recognition of God in all that has happened, such high ideals of manhood anrt civic du ties expressed is such chastity and se renity of language, that we were moved more than once to tears, and even fet like shouting. From exordium to peroration it is indeed in an exalted strain of mingled grace and beauty, and not without that variety that adds to its charm and interest. Revernenlly, most gratefully, we say, thank God that He has given to the South at a time when there is a lessening, a lowering of proper pride of State, and a growing indifference, on the part of many, to the grand tra ditions, the ancestral faiths, the lofty ideals, the commanding principles, the glorious deeds of the noble men who laid deep foundations and builded. our Commonwealth, men like Dr. Murkland to tell of the splendid triumphs of the manhood of the South, and to present in lofty and kindling rhetoric, guided by a pure and in fallible taste, a picture of the radiant past all glorious with enchantment, and to offer proper incitements to faithful and earnest striving in the future. The oration is to us truly superb indiction, in style, in thought. In it there is thought that is imperial in sweep and power a regnancy of reason blended with charming touches of art. Pos sibly may something exaggerate its ex cellent qualities, but not intentionally. Its opulence, its magical strokes, its beauty, its brilliancy, so well-chastened by refined scholarship and made so attractive by a rare art rendered superior by uncommon practice, have really given to us exquisite pleasure, and brought us under the fascinating spell of the orator. We are indebted to the courtesy and considerateness of our good neighbor Rev. Dr. Hoge for the privilege of reading it. Wilming ton Messemger. THIS CONGRESS. Guilty of Both Sins of Commission and Omission. The record of this Congress has been concisely and accurately written long ago. It left undone those things which it ought to have done and it did those things which it ought not to have done, and there is no health in it. The one great thing which it ought to have done was to pass a bill for the relief of the fiances of the government, and that it conspicuously failed to do. Speaker Reed announced in the be ginning that it was to be a "do noth ing Congress." In one respect this was a true prophecy. It was a do nothing Congress as regards those things it ought to have done. In other respects it was active and enlarged it self without measure. In the matter of appropriations, to borrow a phrase from the sporting fraternity, "it beat , the record." In making appropria-' tions it was "out of sight." The great; Fifty-first Congress, the first Reed' Congress of blessed memory, reached the high-water mark and goes down to history as the first billion dollar con gress. This uresent Congress will make that one seem niggardly and par- . cimnnine Kir rnntript I U nl.A.iJ.. provided for extracting about six hun -' dred and twenty million dollars from the pockets of the unfortunate taxpay- I ers, and there is another session com ing. The river and harbor bill, so to speak, "took the cake." The Presi dent vetoed it, but it went over his veto with a rush. Goose creek and Duck pond and Gudgeon river all must be dredged, so that the various Congressmen will stand solid with the boys at home for re election. It is now the accepted method of filching campaign funds from the pockets of the taxpayers. And the lengthening of the pension list not been neglected. The federal government has been likened to a great crow and the Congtessinen to milk maids. Baltimore Sun. The public sentiment favorable to Col. Julian S. Carr for Governor so far from diminishing because of his modesty and utter want of self-seeking, appears to be on the increase. The conviction grows that he is the man for the race. We know that he prefers not to be a candidate, and in no way is he seeking it. We have said more than once in these columns that of aln men in the State he can make the best contest. We have a letter written by him to us early last year in -which he sets forth his cardinal principles, and , j . - iue iiue iviuge commuuiiv ior uays and understand Democracy Wilmington Wseks to come The bea".s hide meas Messenger.

Ex-President Harrison will discuss our national finances in an article on "The Secretary of the Treasury," which will appear in the August issue of The Ladies' Home Journal. He will briefly tell of the origin of our financial system; its expan sion or development; how the nation raises its revenues, and disburses its moneys; and detail the faults of our sys tem of financiering. Referring to the methods necessary to. maintain our gold reserve General Hari isoTi expresses him self with evident disapproval, and says that "the present situation would beab surdifit were not so serious." The in-ei-ease or the diminution of the gold re serve, the ex-President asserts, power fully affects every interest, and the "mending of existing conditions will bea tj.sk for the wisest and strongest states manship." The ex-President clearly intimates that successful financiering is extremely diffi cult by the present methods. Epon this point he says: "If fifty dollars would suffice to hold $50,000,000 in the Treas ury the Secretary could not expend that small sum. He must stand by until the gold is gone, and then sell bonds to get it back. The result is that the banks and the brokers are often able to make play of the Treasury. A finaucial insti tution whose board transacts its busi ness in public is at a disadvantage." "Beyond the Alps Lies Italy." It goes without saying that the lec ture by Mr. Henry Blount at liurwell Hall next Monday evening, will be a literary treat such as our citizens rarely have an opportunity of enjoying. That accomplished scholar, Prof. J. S. Davis, says: Henry IJIount, i n his own peculiar sphere, is without question, the star as cendant on the American lecture plat form. The success and popularity achieved by him in his tours in the West and South were well known here, and the people were expecting a treat. He gave them one which surpassed their most sanguine expectations. The glow ing tribute paid him wherever he has been heard do not give a just conception of the wonderful powers of this distin guished son of North Carolina as an ora tor, actor and rhetorician. He trans forms himself at will and with chameleon like facility and completeness into what ever he wishes to become. At one mo ment the (Jenius of oratory sits upon his lips, and language most ornate and soul stirring, issues forth and, flowing- as smoothly as a quiet meadow brook, bears his charmed hearers unresisting into the regions of the poetical and sub lime. In another, by his matchless mim icry he revets the eyes of the audience upon au ever changing kaleidoscope of humorous characters, and tempest aft er tempest of merry laughter sweeps irresis tibly through the auditorium. The emo tions are perfectly plastic under his mas ter touches and he moulds and shapes them as easily and cunningly as the pot ter does his clay. STATE HOSPITAL. More Room Needed at the Institution at Morgan ton. Capt. Jus. P. Sawyer, who was at Morgan top this week attending the regular quarterly meeting of the board of directors of the State Hospital, of which he is president, says that the question of more room at the institu tion was again discussed. Room for women patients is especially needed, he says, and if any more are admitted a corresponding number of women must be sent away. There are now GG8 patients in. the hospital. Capt. Sawyer thinks the matter of increased accommodation should be agitated by the State papers and brought before the attention of the legislature when it again assembles. At the meeting delegates were ap pointed to attend the second meeting, at Asheville September lGth, of the Association of Southern Hospitals for the Insane. Drs. Murphy aud Tay lor and Directors Sawyer and Caldwell were appointed to represent the Hos pital. Asheville Citizen. A NEW TOBACCO PEST. This Time it is a Caterpillar That Has Come to Vex the Planters. Gerald McCarthy, entomologist of the North Carolina Experiment Sta t'tou, seuds out the following bulletin: A small caterpillar has been dis covered mining the jleaves of grow ing tobacco. The catepillar is about one-half inch long greenish, with a dark brown head. It makes an irregu ular or blotch mine by eating the green matter or pareucyma of the leaf, leav- iu" the skins intact aud the leaf trans parent. The caterpillar is extremely voracious and as several usually mine one leaf the leaf is soon rendered 'worthless. The insect beloags to the teub-family of Tiueid moths, whose best 'knowu representatives are the clothes "and fur moth nnd the Augumois grain moth. This particular species is yet unnamed. Remedies: Being protected by the skins of the leaf, no ordinary poison or insecticide will destroy this pest, nor cau it be hand-picked without destroy ing the leaf. The only treatment is to watch for leaves showing transparent blotches aud wheu found to remove aud 6 burn them. So far this pest has been reported only trom one locality in North Carolina, but it behooves tobac co growers everywhere to look out for it and destroy it as soon as it appears. If it becomes common it will greatly harm the tobacco industry of the State. " EIGHT FEET OF BEAR. An Old Hog Eater Brought Down by John Murphy. r On last Wednesday, John Murphy killed one of the largest bears on the Blue llidge that had been slain in this section of the country for a number of years. He was a regular old hog eat ing bear and had played havoc with the swine in that section for a long time. Mr. Murphy put five shots iuto him from a 38 calibre Winchester and Cnally had to close with him in com bat and finish with his knife. Mr. Murphy escaped with but a few hugs aud scratches, but his bold aud faithful dog fared worse, it seems, as the bear caught him up in one of his massive arms and "sqoze,"' him until the dog couldn't tell whether he was a brave aud iutrepid bear dog, or was just an ordinary kind of a pup. The bear was started on the South The side of the mountain, and the scene of the condict in which Bruin yielded up his life occurred on the McDowell side. Such a bear fight as this one never before look place in all tnese mountains. It is said that frag ments of unkempt dog hair and bear fur was seen floating arouud in the am bient atmosphere adjacent to the scene of carnage for 24 hours after the bal of battle was over. There will be plenty of bear meat in 11. ii. n: 1 -i Cancer Of the Breast. Mr. A. H. Crausby, of 158 Kerr St., Memphis, Tenn., says that his wife paid no attention to a small lamp which appeared in her breast, but it soon de veloped into a cancer of the worst type, and notwithstanding the treatment of the best physicians, it continued to spread and grow rapidly, eating two holes in her breast. The doctors soon pronounced her incurable. A celebrated New York specialist then treat ed her, but she con tinued to grow worse and when informed that both her aunt and grandmother had ' gave trie case up as commended S.S.S. r.nd though little hope remained, she i.egun it. and an improvement was no- iv ed. The cancer commenced to heal and w hen she had taken several bottles it .iu--q peaxed entirely, and although sev eral years have elapsed, not a sign of the disease has ever returned.

Pryor's refusal the other day to believe the evidence of a private detective and the confession of a co-respondent in a divorce suit when their charges were denied upon oath by the wife they accused was charac teristic of him. The lawyers who have from time to time appeared before him say that if their client is a woman she ii bound to get all that the law allows her in his court. Justice Pryor was one of a number of southerners who de cided that New York offered a better field for the practice of law than the south, and his record on the bench has been filled with instances of chivalrous treatment of women. He never loses an opportunity to express his contempt for a co-respondent who will go on the stand and give evidence against a woman's character. He invariably discredits such evidence and always makes such witnesses feel uncomfort able. New York Sun. DISEASES OP THE SKIN.
