Thkkk scarcely ever happened In the History of this world a sublimer spectacle than the rer.o;nination of Grover Cleveland bv the unanimous voice of the Convention. The people of the United States love a brave man, and Cleveland is a brave man; they love an honest man. and God knows he la an honest man: they love a man of good, sound judgment, and 1 do not know any man of sounder judgment than his; they love a man who stands up for the people, who stands up tor principle and does not fear to take the consequence, ami such a man is Grover Cleveland.

The hypocrisy of North Carol ma Radi cals and their misrepresentations on the subject of the Internal Revenue surpasses the past record of that party, noted for its hypocrisy and misrepresentation. Let us state a few well known truths as a pre face. First. The Radic-il party euacted the Internal Revenue system. When the time came when it was necessary to de crease the revenue of the government they repealed the tax on incomes, paid by the wealthy, and the tax on bank checks used only by men who are in business. No burden was taken off the farmer who con verted a few apples or a little grain into brandy. He deserved no consideration. Second. During all the time the Re publican party was in power we never heard any propositions emanating from them to repeal the Internal Revenue sys tem. From the first the Democrats de nounced the system and demanded its abolition or an amelioration of its hard ships. The North Carolina Democrats pledged themselves to use their best en deavors to secure a repeal of the law. Third In the North, and in every State except North Carolina and Virginia and part of Georgia, the people of all parties are opposed to a repeal of the system The Republican party in its National plat form did say that when it had provided coast defences, pensioned all the soldiers, and effected half a dozen other schemes that would require hundreds of millions of dollars, then, rather than c.ive up the Protective system they would favor a re peal of the Internal Revenue system. In his letter of acceptance, referring to this declaration on the part of the National Convention, Mr. Harrison says: "We are not likely tore called upon, I think, to make the present CHOICE be tween a surrender of our protective sys tem and an entire repeal of the Internal Revenue system. Srcu a costinoexcy. in view of the present relation of expendi tures to revenue, lb RKMOI E. Fourth. In the present Congress the Democrats incorporated in the Mills bill provisions reducing the tax and ameliora ting the hardships of its collections. The Chronicle has already published those provisions. That bill passed the House over the opposition of the Republicans. The Republican Senate Committee review ing the provisions of the Mills bill says: "These sections coxstitlte such a modi fication OF OUR I'RESEXT REVENUE SYSTEM, AS RESPECTS THE COLLECTION OF TAXES FROM i)!STILI.EI SPIRITS, AS WILL MAKE IT EASY FOR THOSE DISPOSED TO ENOAI.E IN ILLK IT DISTILLIXO TO IM SO WITH IMPUNITY, AND YOUR COMMITTEE CANNOT BUT RE(i ARD THESE PROVISION" AJ- SERIOUSLY ENDANGERING THE EFFICACY OFOL U ENTIRE SYSTEM OF LAWS WHICH PROVIDE FOR THE COLLECTION OF REVENI E FROM DISTILLED SPIRIT.-:." Thus we see that the Republicans enact ed the Internal Revenue law, have never favored any legislation looking towards a reduction, or amelioration of its hard ships, and now that the Demoi-raMc House has p.is-ed a bill providing to give the people relief, tht- Hepubjic.in Seuate op poses it, and refuses to vote for it, or to substitute any other modification that wili give relief to the people. In his recent speech in the Seuate, Senator Vance spoke the provisions of the Mills bill and contrasted the Democratic record with the Republican record. He said: As to the provisions of the House bill which were intended to mitigate in some degree the harsh features of our internal revenue laws, which are so much com plained of by the small operators in dis tillation in many part of our country, the stern regard of the majority for the rights of the Treasury has proven incorruptible. Section 36 of the House bill ;This is the Democratic House bill. Ed provided that the Secretary of the Treasury might permit every farmer to distill his apples, peaches, and grapes free from all the reg ulations and exactions of the law except simply the payment of the tax. The sub stitute says no, kit bim comply with all the manifold and expensive red-tape of the law or let his fruit rot upon the ground, which it mostly does to his loss and that of the Government. The same section provides that the Secretary of the Treas ury and the Commissioner of Internal Revenue may m their discretion permit all small distiller? of graitL eonsuming less than 25 bushels per day, to operate free from all restrictions except the pay ment of the tax which shall be assessed on the capacity of their distilleries. The substitute refuses to allow this, on the ground that it opens the door to fraud. Between the lines, it is not intended for the benefit of manufacturers Section 37 of the House bill provides that fruit bran dy may be placed in warehouses, and the tax paid thereon when taken out for re moral just the same as other spirits. Why not ' But the substitute says no the farmer who distills his fruit shall pay the tax as the brandy comes from the worm. Tho professional distillers alone shall have the privileges of a Government warehouse. Section 3 of House bill pro vides that when the distillery apparatus of a small distiller is seized for any viola tion of law it shall not be destroyed, but shall be sold as provided by existing law. The substitute says No! The property shall be destroyed whenever seized, though there may have been no legal ad judication of the guilt of its owner. Section 39 of House bill provides that whenever it shall be made to appear to the satisfaction of the judge having jurisdic tion that the health or life of any person confined in prison for any offense against these laws is endangered by such close confinement, the judge may release him upon bail or make any order necessary for his comfort and well-being. The substi tute says No, let him suffer or die. In sections 29, 30, and 31 of House bill, it is humanely provided, respectively, that the minimum of punishments provided by statute for offenses shall be repealed, leav ing it to the discretion of the judge who acquaints himself with all the circum stances to say what punishment shall be inflicted, and that no warrants of arrest shall be issued upon affidavit of charges upon mere information and belief except by the regular officers of the law, and further provide that no fees shall be paid except where the defendant is convicted or the prosecution shall have been ap proved by the district attorney of the United States. And further, that all war rants of atre.'t for i ffer.ses against the United States laws shall be returnable be fore some judicial officer residing in the county of arrest, or if there l none such in that county, then in the county nearest the place of arrest. And lastly it is pro vided by section 33 (Houe l ii) lhat the Commissioner of Internal Revenue aud the Secretary f f the Treasury may compro mise cases and reduce or remit any fines, penalties, forfeitures, or assessments un der internal revenue laws. All of which moderate and reasonable provisions in be half of the small distillers and farmers of the country, the majority indignantly re ject. They are too small and humble to secure the attention of those intellects who have been so long struggling t 'Secuie thepioper relation between the rates imposed upon the numerous articles produced in our related ana interdepen dent industries." But as they had no time to give to the poor and the humble in the solving of this great problem in customs duties, of course they had none to bestow upon the farmer who distills 100 bushels of apples, or to consult the interest of any of the small fry who are affected by internal revenue laws. It is a pity; but let us hope there is still justice abroad in the land which will some day be felt. To sum it all up, it will be seen from what we have said that the Republican Senate puts itself against every remedial feature of the Mills bill in regard to the distillation of spirits. 1. They oppose the provision giving the Judge discretion in the matter of punish ment, as set forth in section 29. 2. They oppose the provision frvidding warrants to be issued unless h, m- oval of a collector or deputy eolte. i or v , as set forth in section 30. 3. They oppose the provision fo. bidding fees to be paid to marshals. tVs , unless there be a conviction, as set forth in sec tion 30. 4. They oppose the provision requiiing warrants to be tried in the county of ar restee, asset forth in section 31. 5. They oppose the provision giving the Judges the power to appoint aud remove commissioners, S:c. , as set forth in sec tion 32. 6. They oppose the provision giving the Commissioner of Internal Revenue power to reduce and remit fines, Arc , as set forth in section 33. 7. They oppose the provision reducing penalty from 100 per cent, to 25 per cent, in case of failure to make return, c, as set forth in section 34. 8. They oppose the provision exempting from the revenue law all distilleries mash ing less than 35 bushels of grain per day, &c, as set forth in section 3G. 9. They oppose the provision forbidding the destruction of stills of less than 150 gallons capacity, &e, as set forth in sec tion 39. 10. They oppose the provision repeal ing all laws imposing special taxes upon manufacturers of stills, retail dealers in liquors, tc, as set forth in section 40. A LA THE ALMANAC WITH VA RIATIONS. About this time of the year (election vears, we mean) look out for Radical newspapers and Radical orators to prepare their followers for defeat by such state ments as: "We wilb certainly carry the State un less we are cheated out of it;" or "Dockery has a clean majority, and the Democrats are preparing gigantic swiudles to defraud Republicans;"' or "Republicans be on vour guard! The Democrats nave, appointed poll-holders whom they know will cheat and they iu- teud to count out the Republicans." Tncse are the usual stereotyped state ments and publications we have beeu reading in North Carolina for twenty years. Each time they are reiterated taken out and given a fresh airing aud then put away To do service in another election year. 1c doesn't do any harm. Nobody believes a word of their statements except a few of the more ignorant negroes, and the statements serve to assuage their griof when defeat comes. This year the Radicals have hit upon a new dodge about the only new thing they have attempted during the campaign. It is to send out circulars throughout the State infamous and worthy of no decent men. The circular which is printed is written and sent out for no other purpose than to stir up prejudice and bad blood and to inflame the passion of the igno rant. It is as false as Judas, and is a base and unwarranted slander. The following is the circular: A Warning ! ! ! Headquarters Rep. State Ex. Com , Raleigh, N. C. To the People of Ngrtu Carolina: We have information that the Demo cratic managers. National and State, in tend to make, during the closing weeks of October, a campaign of lies, forgeries, frauds, etc. The information we have obtained is not mere political rumor, as it came to the Republican National Commit tee, and to this committee, from so many sections, and through such reliable chan nels, that its authenticity cannot be doubted. Knowing that the tide has been strongly against them for three months, the Cleveland managers realiib that their case is hopeless unless, by lies, forgeries and frauds, they can turn the cut rent of popular favor. We hope the intelligent people of North Carolina will be on the lookout for these lies and forgeries, which, it is said, will be more malicious and villainous than was the celebrated Morey Letter forgery, perpetrated by the Democratic National Committee in J880. We take this occa sion to put the people on their guard. In case anv such malicious stories are circulated 4uring the .month of October against the Republican party or any of its candidates, THE PUBLIC SHOULD AT OSCE THINK OF THIS WARNING, and conclude that they are LIES AND FORG ERIES. DO NOT BE DECEIVED OR HOODWINKED BY THEM. Put this notice where it will be seen from now un til election day. J. B. Eaves, Chairman Rep. State Ex. Com. of N. C. PROTECTION OUGHT A HAN DO X ED, TO BE "If the tariff for protection so operates that one section gets the gain and another section gets the loss, then the whole sys tem of protection ought to be abolished." J. G. Blaine, in his speech at Indiana polis. Mr. Blaine has clearly entitled himself to the appellation of the Burchard of the campaign. He ha been blundering so persistently as to cause some of Mr. Har rison's friends to thiDk it was purposely done. His speech on Trusts evidenced his sympathy, and the sympathy of his party, with the monopolists of the country, and brought down upon bis head the condem nation of all except those within the sacred precinct of the Trust. Now he hag "put his foot in it" again, as the saying goes. In a speech at Indian apolis he declares that if one section of the country is benefitted at the expense cf another, protection ought to be abandon ed. Of course he argues that all are bene fitted alike. But not even fair-minded Protectionists will agree with him that Massachusetts and North Carolina, or Pennsylvania and South Carolina receive equal benefit fiom the Tariff tax. Its ad vocates favor it to increase wages. It can (it do s not, as a matter of fact), they ad mit, increase wages only in protected in dustries. Now the South has few protect ed interests. Therefore the South is taxed for the benefit of the North, and according to Mr. Blaine "the whole system of pro tection ought to be abolished." . . . . Mr. Alex. Greene's safe was broken open last week and robbed of $400 and a a gold watch and chain. SH ALL WE HAVE ANOTHER WAR? Voter1 in the South are asked to vote tho Republican ticket. The chief stock in trade of the Republican party is abuse of the South. Northern men are asked to vote ttie Republican ticket to keep the South out of the saddle, and now their leaders occupy much of their time in talk ing about Southern fraud and Southern repression of the negro vote. In a recent issue of the North American Review, Gen. W. T Sherman contributes a paper which is devoted to a discussion of the Southern question. He is willing for another war, and his inflammatory words are of a war like nature, unworthy alike of a soldier or a patriot. Since the Missouri compromise Ameri can politics have been sectional. After the war the general government gave the negro control of the South, and after a few years all observant men came to the conclusion that negro rule was a failure. Then the Democrats came into control. Peace, happiness and freedom from riot and bloodshed have followed. It is now proposed by the Northern Radicals to ab rogate Article 14 of the Constitution and put the negro again in control. This is the policy advocated by Gen. Sherman. We quote an extract from Gen. Sherman's incendiary article, to show to Southern men who think of voting the Radical ticket how the enemy proposes to humil iate the South. The extract is as fol lows : " What is the use of shutting our eyes to a well known fact? We did so from 1830 to 18(50, and have paid the penalty. The next war may be avoided by reason and common sense, and if I can help to avert it, 1 will feel more honored than in past victories and triumphs. I say to the South, let the negro vote, and count his vote honestly. It will not disturb, but, on the coutrary, will hasten jour pros perity and stability as a people. There is no use of talking to me about ' bloooy shirts' I have seen enough of them ; yea, coats and overcoats ensanguined by the hearts' blood of the best men who ever lived. I begged and implored my friends in Louisiana, in 1861, not to arouse the enmity of the North. Ever since the beginning of time Southern people have been quick to anger, but not enduring. "The Northern people, per contra, are slow to anger, but when once aroused are not easy to allay. T he Northern people will not long permit the negro vote to be suppressed, and yet be counted in the political game against them Better meet the question honestly. Ask the abroga tion of Article 14 of the amendments to the Constitution of the United States, or allow the negro to vote, and count his vote. Otherwise, so sure a there is a God in Heaven, you will have another war, moiv cruel than the last, when the torch and dagger will take the place of the mus kets of well ordered battalions. "The negro is gainiug in experience and intelligence every day, and he has read B ron : ' Hereditary bondsmen, know ye not. who would be free, themselves must Mrike the blow Should the negro strike that blow, in seeming justice, there will be millions to assist them. Were I to-day a citizen of Ixuisiana, as I was in 1861, I would far prefer ' Old Shady' as a voter than any of the Bohemians who reach Castle (iarden by thousands every day of the year. I know my Sothern friends will answer, why not leave us alone ? ' We arc now all agreed we are solid.' So they were in 1861, when a tithe of their num ber, united by self-interest, made the whole mass to sacrifice their lives and wealth for the alleged protection of the Mave property of the few." THE DIFFERENCE. The visitors to Raleigh this week must have been impressed with the fact that on Fayetteville street, in full view of all pas sets by, there floated to the breezes a beautiful banner bearing pictures of Gro ver Cleveland and Allen G. Thurman, with the inscriptions: For President, G rover Cleveland, of New Vork. For Vice-President, Allen G. Thurman, of Ohio. For Governor, Daniel G. Fowle. For Congress, B. II. Bunn. Thus do the Democrats. Their banner hangs in full view of the world in a con spicuous place. Where hangs the Republican banner? Certainly no visitor to Raleigh sees it. Have they one' Yes; and it hangj in the neero part of the town, where dwell the members of the Radical party. The position of these two banners tell trumpet-tongtp d the difference between the two parties in North Carolina. It is the most eloquent oration of ti e campaign. It speaks more loudly and more effectively than a dozen orations. It is an object les son, teaching the difference between the parties so that he that runs may read. THE STATE CANVASS. The news that reaches the "mioNCLE is that the state canvas's pi gres-mg most satisfactorily for ti e most part. The Democrats always do their best work dur ing the last three weeks of the campaign, and this year is no exception to the rule. Iy is 4N opeu sociot thut the Republi cans in North Carolina have all the money they need and th t they are spending it where it will do the most good They have pursued the tactics advU d by Judgg Russell of pretending that ihe .have no chance of carrying the State iu order to put the Democrats "fl5 their- guard. But they have money and are using it freely especially in the First, Fourth, Fifth and Ninth districts. The Chronicle sounds the note of warn ing to Democrats. Be up and doing or your liberties will be bought with Protec tion gold. A Spene in the Moore County Radical Convention. Sanford Express. A negro brass band from Sanford en tered and for a half an hour the scene beggars description. Sorry white men and negroea wero packed together as tight as sardines in a box, even unto the arms of these men going around each other's necks. Big buck nei?res heartily shook the bauds ol Ceir pale faced white Lrrth ren, hunched th. in in the short rib- and laughed in their faces and the comming ling odors of this mass pressed to the ceil ing. Like an ant hill, this animated ma.-s of Radicals, (some of them from Sheffield, Bensalem and Ritters township had never seen a brass horn) moved, like a barn full of speckled peas, they looked and at in tervals a wild bacbanalian yell Hindered the air. No white man with decent polit ical instincts could look on that scene of social equality without thanking God for his Democracy. POLITICAL POT A-BILIiSG. WHAT "THEY SAY" ABOUT POLI TICS IN NORTH CAROLINA. The Political Caldron is Beginning to Boil Some Expressions ol Opinion in the New spapers. Sena i o- Voorhees says that Indiana will give Cleveland a majority of 15,000. The V w York Stnr figures that Cleve land will . airy New York by forty thou sand ma.j tity. Blaiii h's been speaking to tremen dotis crow ds i:i Indiana. At Goshen 10, 00' peool - heard him.- 'I he Charlotte Chronicle says that Maj.

Judge Thurmaii spokj in Shclbyville to a great crowd of people. Fifty steers were roasted, and the Cleveland steer was roasted whole and highly seasoned. There will be a grand Democratic rally and barbecue at Moranton Satur day. October 27th. Senator Ransom, Capt. S. B. Alexander and others will speak. The business men of New York had a grand parade on Saturday, and there were 15.0O' men in Hue. Eighty thousand people iicaoi Secretary Fairchiid speak. New York is all right and ablaze with en thusiasm. The Republicans have nominated a candidate for Major of New York Mr. Joel R Enhardt is the man named. The purpose of his nomination is to sw ap votes with the Democrats in order to secure Harrison and Morton's election. Col. N. B. Whitfield, who lives near Seven Spii lti.s, Lmoir county, ha been nominated by the Democrats of Greene and Lenoir for the Senate. He is a very popular man, of tine sense and good qualities. He will make i good rep resen tat lve. - -Mr. J. It Webster, of the Reidsvilie Weekly, has returned to t he Democratic foi l, will r-upport the Demo ratic ticket, we are told, and has been phced on the Committee of Introduction for the grand barbecue, tiag raising and Democratic rally at Reidsvilie. i Greensboro Patriot ('apt.

Ex Secretary Hugh McCuilock, who held the Treasury portfolio aw hile under Presidents Lincoln, Jol in a:id Arthur, authorizes the statement that if he is able to get to the polls in Montgomery county, Md., where he resides, on the 6th of No vcmlur, he will vote for Cleveland. Fai;h in the soundness of president Cleveland's tariff reform policy influences iue ex-Secretary in this determination. Mr. B. D Black, a mechanic of Fay etteville, is out in a card in which he says that he knows several workmen who no longer than last Saturday received 11."0 more in payment of their wages than they would have received had it not been for the Mechanics' Lien Law introduced by Thos. II. Sutton, Esq., and passed by the Democratic legislature. He is for Sutton and all other laboring men in Cumberland who have a just regard for their interests are with him. No man in Western North Carolina to day might so justly be called the veteran westerner in the House of our General Assembly than A. H. Hayes, of Swain county, who is again, for the fifth time I believe, the choice of the Democracy for the same position As his associate sev eral terms, I want to bear testimony to his great integrity, his painstaking care, his fidelity to every duty, his manly meet ing of every responsibility, aud his uni versal and deserved popularity. 'Cor. Asheville Citizen. Mr. II. S. Blair, Democratic nominee for the Senate from Caldwell, tackled the Rev. J. M. Fairchilds, his competitor, and handled him with "gloves off.'' Fair childs stole the livery of Heaven to serve the devil he came to North Carolina with the Bible under his arm, a deck of cards iu oue pocket and a bottle of whisky in the other. After preaching, he stepped up to a loon companion and said, "l can preach like h 1," aud went off and bought a gallon of whisky, got drunk and was found with a deck of cards in his pocket. : McDowell Bugle. llon.Z.

He said that the "slime from these pukes, hounds and scoundrels would not be believed by the honest white peo ple of North Carolina-'' Radical Lie No. I,0!)T. A Radical correspondent of the Greens boro North State stated that ex-State Treasurer John M. Worth, of Randolph would vote the Third Party ticket. Dr. Worth in his denial is not quite so em phatic as Mr. Hewitt who said of himself when similarly libelled, "It ii a lie; & lie," but the Chuonicle opines that if the Doctor should speak his mind he would use language equally as strong.

Many of the private residences are s mounded byleautiful orange groves and the golden fruit intermingled with the green foliage is a picture that is pleasant to look upon Real estate here, as in most of the Western cities, is the leading article of traffic, and there are said to be no less than 400 firms engaged in buying and sell ing property. In 188G the sales of real estate in the city were $29,00O.O j0, while for the year lb87 it reached the turn of fl)8,084,000. What are known as paper towns are continually beiug laid out and sold off in the country adjacent by syndi cates, and the mode of procedure is to lay off streets, build a hotel and a few pri vate residences, advertise and get up a large excursion, give a free dinner, and employ a brass band for the occasion, and then sell off lots. We saw several of these towns on the road between Passa dena and this place which seemed to have been' a failure, while others had flour ished. Los Angeles is destined to be a large city. The populatien increased one-third last year, and the records show that ten million doi.-rs worth cf buildings were en ctc l duricg the same period. Oi;e cf lha places cf interest to visit iiear the city is the Kenel worth ostti-h farm, which is about three miles fiom the city, on the Los Angelts County Railroad. We availed ourselves of the opportunity and were well repaid. They have about 100 birds of ail ages, from the chick-, of three months old to the full grown bird. They are kept iu enclosed p-ns of about one-fourth acre, each size separate, and fed on grasses. Most of the eggs are hatched iu incubators and raised without the assistance of the old birds. The eggs weigh about 2J pounds, and the empty shells (spoiled) sell for 2.00 each as curiosities. The choice feathers sell read ily for from $4.00 to -f.VO'i apiece. An ostrich kicks out in fiont. and it is very dangerous to go into the enclosure where they are without a stick to defend yourself with. The keeper told us of several acci dents to keepers, and of one instance in which an enraged bird slew his kee c. There are several of these farms in South ern California. A grown biui is valued at about $100 Another liht ful trip we take is to Santa Mot:;.;.:. nu.-r resort on the Pacific :!:. b ut I miss west of Los ! A !:-: . 1 re arc vera! tine noteis i he; c ?r t! e accommodation of tourists, a large bathing establishment, a street r;.i! I way, st.ues, and a great number of fine !p!i-..e residences on the bluff overlook -' :: g the o- can. The bathing he"e is con ! s'd.-rd : he iinc.-t on the coast, ' ting en- t iu ly lice from undertow. The beach is tine, the sand hard aud smooth, and the climate here more tquinble than at any other point, the place Ix-ing protected by a prominent headland The Sovereign Crand Lodge of Odd Fel low s convened on Monday morning at ! o'cio; k. and was culled to order by Grand Site John II. White, of New York. In his addre.-s Bro. White says: "The year 1887 stands out as the most prosperous iu the hiitry of the Order. Not only has the increa.- in members been larger than ever before, but the revenue received is larger by hundreds of thous ands, and the expenditures for redi-f are vastly increased over any former period. Not only this, but the Order n-s increased largely in wealth, power and influence. Large cities and towns, which formerly paid little or no attention to us, now eagerly welcome us to their hospitalities. Judges and Governors vie with each other in doing us honor, and well may we be proud of the position the Order has at tained ." Forty four Grand Lodges from the States and Territories, including Ontario, ie bec and Switzerland, and twenty-four Grand Encampments, are represented. There are under its jurisdiction 43 Grand Encampments, ."51 Grand Lodges, S,:-?:?l subordinate lodges, 2,043 subordinate en camptne'its, and 555,722 members of subor dinate lodges. There was spent last year for the relief cf the oLk the enormcm sum of 2,3.VJ,76tf.02. The total revenue of these lodges for the year was f 6, 005. dill 42 On Tuesday the Sovereign Grand Lodge went into an election of officer , when Gen. John C. Underwood, of Kentucky, was elected Grand Sire, and Charles M. Busbee, of our State, was elected Deputy. Grand Sire, and two years hence will be elevated to the highest office in the gift of the Older. This is the first time that a North Carolinian has ever held an eke ive olhee in the Grand Lodge, and by the ele vation of Bro. Busbee to this offj. t the Order in our State hs been highly liou ured, and the Sovereign Grand Lodge has at last reiognized bis valuable services in her legislative councils, he having repre sentcd his State for fifteen consecutive years. We had the pleasure of meetiug here our itiend, and formerly a citizen of p,al eigh, Jordan Stone, Esq.. t wiil he re mom Lc red tt.t Mr. Stone was atone nine connected with me Dai! XcAsin ll,U uh, and afterwards with the AshevilleCirizen: but recently he has settled in Los Angeles and engaged in mercantile busine.-s Mr. Stoue is an exceedingly clever g- nt'eman, a fine business man, and though w & regret very ranch to lose hi- valuable s.-i in North, Carolina journalism, we rej i.-e to know that he is meeting with success in his new business and newlv adopted home. Another North Carolinian ve had the pleasure of shaking by the hand was Dr. T. R. Crowell, formerly of Monroe. N C. Dr. Crowell has also been quite successful in his new field of labor. Un Wednesday there was a large pro fession of the Odd Fellows and Patriarchs Militant in honor of the G'and Lodge The representatives were placed in car riages" with placards iadiea'i'tfg the various States Irom which they hntled. It so happened that the representatives from Norttt Carolina aud South Carolina rode in the sr.me conveyance, and many times on t lie route we heard the (pies' ion asked, " What did the Governor of South Caro lina say to the Governor of North Caro lina?" has been lepea'ed by the press of the country until it ha l oome a national source of jirausemeut. Invaiiably the re puted answer of our Govern ir was cor reo'y given. At several places along ihe roi: e, as there would bo a short halt oc eao: e-) by Kome obstruction in the line of iaa eh f Jimer citizens ot our State would cr.o.d around our carriage and in quire about friends left at home. The Id rand Lodge having adjourned we start for home via San Francisco, Salt L'li-o City and Denver, and reach the former city without any stop. On the way our party becomes acquainted w ith a Cali fomian who points out various places of interest along the route, and who proves to be a gentleman of considerable promi nence in the politics of the State, Hon. A. Caminctti, one of the Cleveland electors for the State at large. We accept his offer to call for our party at the hotel early on the morning after our arrival to show us around the city, and as we are entire strangers here his services are very val uable. After a night's rest at the Palace Hotel, said to be the la i .rest in the world (con taining 1,025 bed-rooms) we awake to find our party ready for an early start and our friend on hand according to appointment. Asour stay ia the city is to be limited we conclude to make tho most of our time, and after taking a cursory view of some of the principal streets and buildings we board the cable-road for a visit to the Golden Gate, about six miles west of the city, and take in while enroute Golden Gate Park, which is a lovely place and the ptidc of all San Friscoians. It is prob ibiy as line a parte as there is on the continent, abounding in beautiful drives, rare plants and beauti ful shrubbery. It contains 1,013 acres of ground. There are many statues in these lovely grounds, the latest to be erected King a fine one of Francis Scott Key. the author of the Star Spangled Banner, which was erected by the late James Lick at a cost of $30,000. It was recently dedicated and part of the ceremony was a grand musical concert. n the side of an elevated mound in full view of th' large concourse present, was represented iu flowers the Stars and Stripes, and underneath the banner a stanza of the song also set to music in flowers, so that the people assem bled could sing by note. It is still very distinct, and some of our party who had a talent for music sang the verse and pro nounced the notes all right. We now board a small steam railway and are soon at the end of our journey,on the beach of the Pacific. Here on the side of the cliffs, where the waves of the sea ever dash and roar against their base, is built a hotel ca'led the Cliff House, from the porch of which" can be witnessed the novel sight of hundreds of sea lion and seals basking in the morning sun on the seal rocks located about three hundred yards from shore. Their cries can be heard above the sound of the sea-waves, which somewhat resembles the cries of a pack of fox-hounds in the distance in full chase. These animals are protected by stringent State laws and are not permitted to be molested under heavy penalties, or else man iu his desire for gain would soon drive them from tiie coast. On the top of the heights overlooking the hotel and sea is a beautiful summer residence and pri vate grounds known as Sutro Park, which is one of the loveliest places we ever be held Here are all the ran: plants, shrubs and flowers, marble and bronze statuary i bat money could purchase, while en sconced in a beautiful grove is a palatial residence. We thought while beholding this surely here must be perfect bliss; but on enquiry we learn that there was no real happiness here mau aud wife sej arated. From this elevation a splendid view of Golden Gate, which is the entrance to San Francisco Bay, is obtained. Some idea can be gained cf the vastness of this country of ours by taking a string and measuring on the map from Manteo on the eastern shore of North Carolina to this place, divide the distance by half and it reaches only to the middle of the State of Kansas; or by comparing the difference in the time by your watch, which is here three hours behind the time in Raleigh; or remembering that the distance between the points named is nearly one eighth around the world. California is large enough and wealthy enough to be an empire within itseif, and is increasing in population and wealth at a rapid rate, a statement having been pub lished in one of our local papers recently that the increase in wealth last year amounted to 300,000 000. ami ycr. in 184s, when the question of accepting New Mexico, Arizona and California from the Mexicans as indemnity for the cost of the Mexican war, in the campaign in North Carolina between the champictH of the !)cmocralie aud hig parU , the former in favor of the measure and the latter op posed to it, the eppositi n candidate for Governor said from the stomp that "he would not give his old j ncil case for the whole of it, and California thrown iu." Mr. Webster, who was then in the -euate, also opposed its acquisition, but would not favor the proposit on to exclude slavery then from, because, he said, nature her self had done that already. This w as tr ne. rise climate and soil of California were not suited to slavery. She tloui ished wonderfullv without it. We take another line of cars which fol lows the bay around to the city and arrive iu lime for dinner. San Fr ncisco has a population of near ly 400,000, ab .ut one-fourth ot whom are Chinese. It has 1.200 miles of streets, c 'vers an area of 40 square miles includ ing me government reservation, parks and vacant squares. It presents a very broken appearance, owing to the greater portion of if being built on the hills, some of wl.u a attain quite an altitude Telegraph hill out feet: Ciay Street hill M76 feet. .-. .d Russc'i! hill ::d leet. From these hills a magnificent view of the city and .-urroundmgs may be obtained. A large portion of the lower part of the city is built on land made by tilling out into the bi.v Where the largest warehouses now s and e-hips of the heaviest tonnage could ikie with safety in if 50. To protect the made land a heavy sea wall was erected in front of the city. San Francisco is. sit uated on peuiu.-ular, being surrounded by water on nearly every hand. I find the Democrats 'here (oniident of carrying California and Nevada for Cl. ve laud. They are rejoiced over the Chi i, i se exclusion measure, and assert that tliev will carry these States by virtue of it. After dinner we leave by way of Sacra mento and Ogden for Salt "Lake City, where our next stop will be made, and. in our next we will endeavor to give your readers an account of what we see among the Mormoj. C. B. En w Aims. TttOKAtEl) DOCKEKV He Voted to Prevent Negroes Troui Kul. ins the IHistru-t ol Columbia. I From Wilson Advance. Thw tt"-'t cry of the Republican speak ers in this Stat" is that the rights of the people have beeu taken from them in that they cannot elect tl.eir magistrates and County Commissioners. They cry aloud at the injustice that is done the people -they w-aru the people that their "liberties" are being taken from them by the "Oli garchs" as they call the Democratic par ty. One of the loudest in the cry against this tyranny (that protects the taxpayers of tho negro ridden counties of the East) is Oliver II. Dockery, who is now before the people as a candidate for Govt: nor L?t us see how careful this selfsame man is to protect the personal liberty of the people. The following letter shows how carefully he guards against any encroachment upon the "liberties" of the people, as he terms an effort to protect the taxpayers against the extravagance and corruption of the negroes: Washington, D. C, Sept. 24, 1888. Hamilton Mc illan: My Dear Sir: - In reply to your favor of tho 18th inst., I fiud that during the 3rd Session of the -list Congress, a bill passed the House to provide a Government for the District of Columbia, and containing the following sections: That the said leg islative assembly shall have the power to provide for the appointment, of as many Justices of the Peace and Notary Publics for said District as may be deemed neces sary, to define their jurisdiction and pre scribe t heir duties, .vcc, &c. On the pass age of the bill the yeas and nays were ordered and O. II. Dockery voted in the affirmative. See House Journal p:t-e 19" January 20th, 1871. So you see 1 rockery proposed to do to the District of Columbia what the Democratic party did for North Carolina in 1876. Your Friend, Alfred Rowland.
