The Chronicle's first words arc
words of thanks for the very generous wel
come that the press from one end of' the
State to the other has given its prospectus.
Fancying that it was not burdened with
obligations to any one, it finds itself
greatly in debt for such kindness ; and,
though it had determined to make no
promises, it cannot refrain from promising
an appreciative remembrance of such a re
ception. The best help the Butlek "boom" for
the Presidency has receeived is the decla
ration of Wendell Phillips that he can
not conscientiously support Butlek again.
The most of the best political prophets in
the First District seem to agree that James
Edwin Wooke, of Martin, is the safest man
to nominate for Congress, to fill the vacancy
caused by the death of Mr. Pool. But Cur
rituck has instructed for Mu. VV. B. Shaw.
Fkom the voluminous criticisms and com
mendations of the people and the press of
South Carolina, it is impossibleto decide

Goveunok J. PiiocTOit Knott, of Ken
tucky, who has always regretted that he
made his Duluth speech in Congress, be
cause it has burdened him with the rep
utation of being a humorist, has put aside
his humorous manners and is trying to
impress the jocular Kentuckians with the
notion that he is a very serious Governor.
Old Governor Luke Blackburn, his prede
cessor, was not witty surety, and his serious
ness hinted very strongly of dullness.
Kentucky has a better Governor than she
has had for the last two terms.
When Presidents and Governors take
vacations or in any way recuperate them
selves, there are persons who complain of
neglect of duty. The New York World is
criticising President Arthur for going to
the Yellowstone, the press of Virginia has
called Governor Cameron the " stay from
home Governor," and in North Carolina it
has been muttered in a growl that Governor
Jarvis' going to Boston is wrong. The
unnecessary expenses which many junketers
incur are not justifiable; but the howl at
public officers who take recreation prop
erly, as other men do, is unnecessary and
Piiesident Aktiiuk has issued a proc
lamation declaring that the World's Indus
trial and Cotton Centennial Exposition
will be opened on the first Monday in T)e-
-conbr, 4 osUj- r.t New Orleans, continuing
until May 2G, 1SS5. This is the Exposition
that the Cotton Planters' Association has
projected. The holding of a great fair in
mid -winter (and this is the only possible
time, of course, in New Orleans) will pre
vent conflict with any other Exposition.
The planters have projected it on a scale
that is worthy of their great staple and
worthy of the time next year being the
one hundredth vear since cotton w as first
cultivated in the United States.
Tiieb l'as not hi recent years been a
more bitter political contest anywhere
than the Virginians are now having, al
though at their forthcoming election only
members of the Legislature are to be elec
ted. The political position of Virginia,
however, in great measure will depend
upon the result. If Maiione succeeds in
carrying the State he will then try his
somewhat impudent game of u handing
over " the State in the Presidential election
to whomever be will. Yet there
seems to be good reason to believe that he
will not succeed. The debt question, now
practically eliminated from politics, leaves
the Mahonites clearly in the .Republican
ranks, and yet the " Straightouts " will
not recognize him. The outlook ;? for an
overthrow of the petty boss and for the
recovery of State politics by unselfish men.

The Chkonici.e is its own master, and it
covers the State.
Such a frank and full expression of the
political opinions of the people in every
part of the State as The Chronicle has the
pleasure of laying before its readers this
wetk was never before made in North Caro
lina. When delegates meet in convention,
the expression of opinion is likely to be
much more politic than frank, and men say
what they think now more readily than they
will a year hence. Every render, therefore,
who cares more for the truth than for men,
more for the wishes of the people than for
the ambition of candidates, will find the
letters on the first page very instructive.
The letters are from tegular correspond
ents of The Chronicle, and from other
prominent men, many of whom are mem
bers of the General Assembly and county
officers, of each party, and they all have
means of rinding out the opinions of the
people. Their names have been suppressed,
and they have written with frankness.
The Democrats all feel that careful action
is necessary next year. As one observing
correspondent has written, "the personnel
of the ticket will probacy decide the result."
There is news of di!cVnle:it in the West and
of fear in the East. A11 arye that a strong
man is necessary. It is somewhat remark
able that any man in sUcb a canvass, when
no correspondent knew, what another would
say, should be the firs', choice of so many
counties as General -3?ales is. It seems
almost certain that if tfsNERix Scales will
accept Ue npmiaationvfor Governor, it will
be-ttf idfel'; t$im . Whether tendered to

Will be surest to saveThe Democracy ne$
year. Captain CoKEjhas so strong a spon
taneous following in both sections of the
State where he is knorn that it would air
prise nobody, and would be a gratification
to a large part of the party if he were to be
nominated for Governor. Judge Gilmer,
Colonel Bennett and the other gentlemen
mentioned will discover from these letters
that they, too, are not without strong friends
and many of them.
Especially noteworthy is the evidence that
is given in these letters of the thoughtful
interest that the people take even in so quiet
a time in State politics. The answers have
been promptly given, and not a single letter
shows indifference. The people will be
likely to keep in mind the fact3 that they J
have thus made known, and the politicians
may be wise not to forget them. Political
manipulation has made few Governors ol
North Carolina, and it is not likely to make
Although a number of persons inter
viewed by The Chronicle, and some of
its correspondents are Republicans, the Re
publican part of the returns is very unsatis
factory. The masses of that party have no
choice, no notion, in fact, of what they
want. They mention the names of Col.
Docker y, Judge Russell and Mr. Price
in a mechanical way. Their preference is
the preference of their managers. The proof
that The Chronicle gives of this is the
worst comment that could be made on the
moral condition of the Republican party in
the State. It lacks independence ; it lacks
convictions of its own. Its chance is simply
the chance given by the venality of ignorant
voters antl by the short-comings of the
Democrats ; and the chance given by the
short-comings of the Democrats would be a
good one if the Republicans were clean
enough and wise enough to take advantage
of it. But their management is not, and is
not likely to be, generous or clean or
patriotic A Federal office is their pitfall,
and so long as the Federal government is
Republican a generous and clean Republi
canism is Xorth Carolina is improbable.
To collect and to present such a full and
rink expression of opinion of the people's
opinion is the best service, we think, that
any journal can do the Democratic party
and the State. To tell the truth is the best
policy no less in politics than in the affairs
of private life. The lesson that the Demo
cracy needs most to learn is the lesson
taught by Judge Bennett's unboastworthy
majority last year. There is no danger,
however, if the politicians see the signs ot
the times and consult only the wishes of
the people.
Besides instruction these letters contain
not a little amusement. The wild fancies
of some of the correspondents, the vehe
ment insistence of others on impossible can
didates, the funny notions and humorous
phrases of others, and the good nature and
frankness of them all make these letters
"mighty interesting reading."
This is The Chronicle's idea of jour
nalism, and this is the way it carries its idea

and done .-uch injuries to the State as none
but a strongman could have done. There
is nothing commonplace in his w hole ca

whether it were evil or good. lie made
stronger friends and bitterer enemies than
any other man in our history, and he i
hated to-day with such a hatred as none
but a strong man ever inspired. Many
ungraceful expressions of enmity haye

punishment for disregarding it shall be
lasting. The willingness of some men to
remove his disabilities does credit to their
hearts, but hardly to their judgment of the
greatness and dignity of the Common
wealth. To get a proper point of view,
consider what old Xatiiaxiel Macon
would say if lie were among us. Would he
vote to revoke cr to seem to revoke the judg
ment of the State? Xever! Men's opin
ions may change, unjust judgments may
be reversed, injuries may be forgiven, old
enemies may become friends, and so they
should ; but such a rebuke as the State of
North Carolina gave the ambition of this
man should stand, not, indeed, to do in
jury to him, but as a warning to all other
men forever. Whether he belong to one
political party or the other or to none is
not to the point.
The two expositions that are now at
tracting the attention of the people of the
State are both interesting, but each is of a
different kind.
The exposition at Boston, organized and
managed by the Mechanics' and Manufac
turers' Institute, which holds an annual
exposition, is made up chiefly of goods of
foreign manufacture. The main purpose
of it, in fact, is. together together the best
specimens of foreign-made things which
have a sale this country. The Xew
England manufacturers can learn lessons
from su'h exhibit. One lesson that they
ought to learn is that an exorbitant pro
tective tarilffor twr-.nty j ears has not made
the United States the foremost manufac
turing country in the world. Yet the
friends of the protective tariff predicted not a J"nre indication . f an exodu of
lifty years ago, and repeated the prediction ' XZU
twenty y-ears ago, that such would be the ; J ...
result of it, precisely as they predict now ; IJI-ss h. v-.
that such will be the result. A secondary H'-ce n-i'e Corr.sio,, i, ,,t Asho-ui,- .)-. n.

State. This is an advertisement just where
it will do the most good. We need New (

in any other Southern State is there a
