Lot porno et of hurnnnit arums launch some wliome fort ho ameliora tion of ills besetting mankind and you will find the chronic najrtrer, there to constantly register his kiek. It is a Unix fall back to the dark days of thesis! ies, when neetional bit ternesH ran rife and the spirit of brot herhood was seriously perturbed. We live happily, today in the dawn nfn brighter era a day when strife and dissension has died out, and when North and South are ;i;rain one and the same people. The work of healing-over thebreaeh has been conducted by lofty minds, but there have ever been present a few little najrirers. They exist today. When with hearts full of patriotism Virginian offered to th: nation a statue of General I..'o to be placed alongside of statues of great North ern Genera Is, there were a few of these wretched little na.-rs to enter pro test, to deliver themselves of pent-up sectional bitterness, to insult the spirit which has made both North and South one people. Unfortunately one or two of these impoverished little spirits have man aged, by some unpardonable neglect on the part of voters, to sneak into the halls of congress. It was only yesterday that I ley burn, of Idaho, took occasion to dis play on the floor of the senate a sample of his assininit y. In fetid terms he protested against the loaning of tents to Alabama to be used in a reunion. And in more feverish terms he denounced the bring ing into statuary hall of the Lee statue. His declaration that sentiment of today was kindred to that existing in the sixties manifestly applies only to himself for when a vote came not another member in congress. Demo crat or Republican, voted with the "patriot" from Idaho. Not another senator concurred in his expressed wish that Virginia '-come and take the Lee statue away; it may be dear to you but it is not dear to us." What stinging rebuke to this miser able little counterfeit statesman. Not a man to vote for his resolution! There are few bloody shirt wavers nowadays, and the gods be praised this is true. "Walt .Mason" forcibly pain ts the nagger in the following lines: 'A large black dog, of stately mien, was walking o'er the village green, on some important errand bent; a little cur, not worth a cent, c.bserved him passing bv, and growled, and barked awhiKaiid yapped, and howled. The big one did not deign a look, but walked along, like prince or dook. The curreniarked, beneath ils breat h: "That big four-llusuer's scared to death! Those great big brutes are never game; now just watch l'ido climb his frame!'" The big black (log went stalking on. as calm and tran quil as the dawn: he knew the curwa: at. his heels: he heard its vans am snarls and squeals, and yet he never looked around, or blinked an eye, or made a sound;his niedit atiotis had a tone that mangy pups have never known. The cur, unnoticed. lost, all fear; it grabbed the big dog by the ear;t he lat t er paused just long em guh to take the small one by the schnff. and shake him gent lv t o and tro; am then lie let poor Kido go, and said, in quiet tones: '.Now get! And l ido's doubtless running yet. Suppose you see if you can nail the moral hidden in this tale." The ;ibove is a composite picture of the great hearts who have succeeded in restoring peace bet ween Norl h and South, and the little curs, such as Heyburn, whom they have h id to contend with. Scheme That Didn't Work. Statcsville I.; i in! murk. Mr. L. 1. Mctlehee. who was last week elected dean of the State I'ni versity law school, is a native of Person county and a son of the late Montiford MclJehee, who was at one time State commissioner of agricul ture. Mr. Mctiehee is a graduate of the University and was for a time a member of the law school faculty, having resigned two years ago to go to New York. His salary as dean of the law school and head of the sum mer law school will be S2,.(H) per annum instead of M,2.0, as was erroneously reported from Raleigh. In connection with the election of the dean of the University law school, it is said that some of the politicians who are always tip and dressed when an ottice is to be tilled had a scheme to increase the salary and elect Associate .lust ice Rrown, of the Supreme Court, to the position. Then the vacancy on the Supreme Court bench was to be filled by the appointment of ,Judg Allen. This scheni ", had it worked, would have eliminated the contest now on be tween Judges Allen and Manning for the Democratic nomination for the Supreme Court. M: viiti-l'aia I'i! ii ii o iain.

There has been no retort to splen etic outbursts of Northern fanatics who think it smart to fling at the South and the memory of the Con federacy that equals the few words of Senator Bankhead, of Alabama, uttered at the conclusion of the ill- natured tirade of Senator Heyburn, of Idaho, who, for an hour, had been vociferating because it was proposed to loan Ciovorntnent tents to the Confederate veterans at their annual re-union in Mobile in April, and be cause (if the General Robert L'. Lee statue in Statuary Hall. Waving the bloody shirt as widly as his limitations of language would permit, the Idaho Senator had delivered himself of envenomed thoughts in fiery language, the out break against the South and the Confederacy being the most violent of years. Red in the face from his overheated remarks in which he hurled defiance at "rebels," whom he declared brought to the attention of Congress, "those memories of the Civil War,"' he finally took his seat. And then, in place of the fervid de fense of the South, of Lee, and of the Confederacy for which the Heyburn heart longed as an excuse for a fur ther outburst, all he got was: "I am sure the Senator from Idaho feels much better now," this the genial remark of Senator Bankhead. If Senator Rankhead had talked for an hour he could have made no better retort. It was neatly done, it was happily done, and the Idaho Sen ator was completely answered. It was a knock-out delivered with the j wisdom of humor that was complete, and it told Senator Heyburn that i his mouthing annoyed no one, that it was regarded simply as blowing off steam. i The outburst of Heyburn did not betray the Southern Senators into anger, the remark of Senator Rank head covering the case, letting the sectional speaker see that the day has passed when such petty flings and ignoble sentiments can annoj'. The memory of Lee is safe and re quires no defense. The South is part of the Union, it pays its part of the Government expenses, 1t contributes to the national wealth and its citizens have the right to have that which is given other sections. For these reasons there was needed no thunder of reply to Heyburn, the few words of Senator Rankhead telling him plainly that his tirade had made an exhibit ion of himself, and was worthy no more consideration than that of a pettish and pouting child, wno cried and stuck fingers in his eyes be muse he could not have nisown way The remark of Senator Rankhead r better than an hour's verbal snankinc. And on top of it the Senate, with but Hevburn voting no, authorized the loan. That the Heyburn kind is nassinc: is a fortunate thing for this country. Wilmington Honors Memory of Gal lant Union Soldier. I'ittsboro Record. The Wilmington Chamber of Com merce, composed of the most promi nent business men of that city, re cently adopted very complimentary resolutions in memory of Gen. N. M. Curtis, of New York, who died last month and who led the attacking force in the capture of Fort Fisher, where he was desperately wounded. This incident is a most pleasing and striking illustration of the reconilia tion between the North and the South and of the obliteration of the pas sions and prejudices engendered by the war between the States. Fort Fisher was the gateway to Wilmington and its capture forced the evacuation of that city, and yet here are the leading business men of Wilmington paying this tribute of respect and honoring the man who led the Union forces in the capture of Fort Fisher. (Jen. Curtis, together with a large number of Union soldiers who cap tiirrd Fort Fisher, visited "Wilming ton a few years ago and went to the place where .tort risber once stood, and there had a most pleasant re union with some of the Confederate soldiers with whom they had fought in January, 18G5. And last year a number of the Confederate veterans accepted an invitation from General Curtis and his associates to visit them at Utica, New York, where they were entertained most hospitably. This illustrated the kindly feeling of those brave men who withstood one another in bloody battle, and quit fighting when the war was over. Took All His Money.

Wilmington St-ar, 18tb. We trust that Kaleijrh is by thin tipip ashamftl of itself. Its action on Wednesday nifrht was not only pue rile, but buncolic. False alarms off fire: tvyo thousand people jammed in front of a theatre; some dozn or more badly rattled policemen; a crowd of showgirls; a theatrical man- ager under arrest; the city officials on puard, bedlam broke loose all these things make a picture wit h a Western flavor, and alonjr ago flavor at that. In some such manner, a place with out police protection, a howling mob might break loose and make night hideous with cow bells, oaths, whoops and screamings. Surely it was time for house-keeping folks to close their shutters, pull down the curtains, and cower in the chimney corner. In the Capital of the State the spectacle was one to brine: disgust to the State which the city represents. And. its own home in th vprv ren ter of the rioting district, through Teent pell-mell to the danger of life anu nmD, me xsews and UDserver ex rlaims: "Decency dominates in Ral eirh!" "The law is snnrpmp in thr Capital of North Carolina!" lmw ls such a curious thing that, while the News and Observer irmv feel competent to express an opinion on sucu u siaie 01 anairs, we ao not. In fact, we haVP rprvspriraii ilnnlita as to whether the action of a mayor in forbidding a play which he knows nothing about except through hear say is leeral. We still fnrthpr d his authority to order his police to capture oy iorce and hold a theatre, Shutting out therefrom thp engaged to play there and the man- al 1 -- ager 01 tne uouse. We suspect the power of the Dolice to force n. irov into a private building, arrest the person cnargea wirn its care lor his refusal to surrender his kevs. ind there make a citadel for the police aepartment in wnich to hold the fort against "Tootsip Fnor.-lio-hts " vchUa anarchy reigns outside! These things nave not exactly an orderly and legal look, the ODinion of the News nnd Observer to the contrary. However, it may be all law. He do not know, and we cannot be cer tain until the courts shall have had opportunity to pass on the matter. It appears to us to be no less than a forcible trespass. As to the matter or the law being supreme in the Capi tal of North Carolina, we are uncer tain. One thing, however, is self-evident to the most casual observer: "Deeencv was not on dutv Wed nesday night. New Dean of Law School. 46 BUCK'S 99 Elegant Cast Ranges.
