TAtn aim fii Aannri a in EMrttMa a laying great difficulty in nominating a Tnited States Senator. The present enator, Mb. Call, is a candidate for election and in the caucus has 56 ' otes, and his leading opponent, Mb. Spseb, has 39 votes. There are a few other scattering votes. Call has many warm friends. He has some conspicuous-enemies in the party who have long . wanted his scalp. His other weakness is that quite a number of members of the Alliance oppose him because he op- doSOo the Sub-Treasury, plan. Quite number of Alliance members are also for hint. Whatever may be the result, a Demo crat; will go to the Senate. We have no concern as to the man so he is the choice of the party in Florida. But the caucus i adopted the two-thirds rule which long ago gone into "innocuous desuetude," and have resolved to elect no Senator until someone gets two- thirds of all the Democratic votes. The situation in Florida is this: The Legis lature contains 99 Democrats and one solitary Republican. And yet an ab surd effete and unfair rule is established which will probtbly result in the elec tion of that candidate who has the least force of character, therefore the fewest enemies. We have observed that the working of the two-thirds "ule almost io variably secured ;he nomination of weak and namby pamby men, and nothing has been' so fruitful of independentism and liscon tent within the ranks of the party rule. When a man has a major caucus or convention ne is en nomination, ana any m e him. is in direct con ' equity and justice been , made to -o tne oancja "-5, !"sk MR. BLAIR WILL NO r GOTO CHINA. We have no disposition to rejoice in the misfortunes that have come to Mr. Blaib. Discomfitted by the failure of his educational bill, beaten for re-ekc- tion to the Senate, he is now chagrined and humiliated by the official notifica tion on the part of the Chinese authori ties that China is not willing to receive him as Minister. It is a series of political misfortunes which Mb Blaib, wild as he is in some of his schemes for the universal salva tion of mankind, does not deserve. The Republican Senate was pledged by every obligation of honor to pass the educa tional bilL It refused to do so because, under the provisions of the bill, most of the money would have to come into the South. Ma. Blaib was indignant at this violation of their pledge by his Republican associates and denounced them roundly. Defeated at home for re election, Mb Blaib was solaced by the appointment as Minister to China. Now, because of speeches in which he took strong ground against Chinese immigra tion, the Chinese government declines to receive him. Surely his lot is no' a hap py one, and although we never regarded him as a conspicuously able man, we sympathize with the disappointed man in his latest rebuff. We believe that Mb. Blur was patriotic in his earnest es pousal of his educational bill, by which most of the money would have come into the South. For his interest in the South and his belief in the fact, and his effort to compel the men who freed the negroes to help bear the. bur den of education for these things we have been willing to forgive much pati zanship; and we were even willing to for give his long twelve days speech in the Senate - a part which we were so unfor tunate as to hear. Of course the President will appoint another minister to China. Our govern ment recognizes the right of a foreign power to express its unwillingness to re ceive a minister who is not entirely ac ceptable. More than one objection, have been made and so late as in Mr Clbve land's administration when Italy ob jected to receivirjer the Minister appoi ed. It will be difficult to find a prominence who has not oppose immigration, but few had spoj terly against the inhabitants Celestial Empire as Mb BytAia. The recognized priucije on this sub ject was well stated 4n the following words by Mr. Freliffghuysen when Sec- must be borne in mind that an nvoy is a person as well as the abstract representative of his government, aud that it is the prerogative of every gov ernment to require that those with whom t, den's be persorae gratse and to decide the question for itself. "1 his government has on several oc casions availed ltseit or tnis personal ri,:!;t without thereby being supposed to j reflect on the representative character of h-; person himself and still less upon the collective representative character of his associates. Those who dislike Mr. Blaib will re gret the action of the Chinese govern ment anl be sorry that he is to remain in this country. The most serious diffi culty that Alexander Stephens ever had with his constituents was over re commending a very offensive Republi can to a position as consul in a foreign country. They waited on him indig nantly and he answered them by pro pounding the inquiry to each: "Do you prefer to have this man who is offensive to yon in Georgia or sent away to some far off port ?" It was a poser. That was what the President could have answered any of Blair's enemies who objected to bis appointment of Mr. Blair as Minis ter to China. MISS DICKINSON'S CHARGES. Miss Anna Dickinson has been lectur ing in New Yoik and has been telling so much of what reads like unpleasant truth that the papers Bay she is demented. Well, she may be crazy, but the account she gives of the treatment she received indicates that it was enough to enrage if not to make her mad. We quote the following: She had not used the word conspira cy, she said, and. she would not use it, but she argued tnat tue politicians oi the national republican committee were interested in having her locsed up wnere her voice would be muzzled and the in formation in her possession should come out Clarkson was particularly anxions in this respect, "He wrote me letters which Mrs. Clarkson woum not iiko uj read, and when there was danger of an explosion he ran away to Europe." Miss Dickinson told again the story of her alleged arrangements with the Com mittee. "I was told by Mr. Fesaenden," she said, "if you will put aside the ne gro and talk of what we call protection, using the argument that we like to urge, here is a blank check which you can fill io for any sum and we will honor it to day." I said, I am poor and wish to keep a roof over the bead of my dying mother, and if the sum were millions instead of thon-ands, 1 wru'd not-do it.'

TRINITY LITERARY SOCIETIES SAY GOVERNMENTS SHOULD NOT OWN RAILROADS. The Columbian Declared They Should and the Heperim Won by a Vote of 1U5 to 17 Athletic Game and a Great Occ4Mon. Special Cor. to State Chronicle. 1 Trinity Colleoe, Apiil 25. The 3rd annual debate between the Columbian and Hesperian Literary Societies was held at Trinity College yesterday evening in the college chapel. The exircises bagau at 8:25 p. nv with song by the Trinity College Glee Club Hail Festal Day. "Mr. D. R Davis.of Beaufort, N.C.as President of the Hesperian Society pre sided over the exercises. Noma li tteid, of li iidsville, N. C , secretary of the Col umbian boeiety, was the secretary of the occasion. The programme was as follows: Columbian Oration "Hero Worship," R. L Durham, of Greensboro N. C. Hesperian Oration Ruins, J. R. Mc Crary, of Lexington, N. C. Joint Debate Qiery, "Resolved that the United States Government should own and control the telegraph lines aud railways within its borders." Affirm v tive, Frank Armfield and W. I Cranford, negative C. Turner and L. S Matsey The Columbians had the affirmative and the Hesperians had the negative. Mr. Arnifield's opening speech was clear, strong and well arranged, He obarged the railroads with violating charters aud watering stock, and said they were a corrupting power. Some thing must be done. Railroad Commis sion was not a success, but government al control is a success. He gave the comparison between the German and Austrian systems and the American sys tern. Former is cheaper because the government controls it. Governments? control is cheaper, because it prevents parallel lines and litigation. Mr. Turner said that railroads son. 3 times become an evil, but govern meatal control was not the remedy. Affirma tive argument followed up would make the government owner of every interest which could be made a monopoly, until Uncle Sam would be feeding all his nu merous nephev.s and neices with a spoon. It would create too many new offices -would make six times as many as we now have Congress would nec essarily appropriate money tc build rail roads. One section' would not want to build railroads for another. South would not be developed. Sectional hatred would be re awakened. Mr. Cranford said that commissions are not a success. They are or will be come bribed by the railroad kings, and the people will furnish ihe money to pay the bribe. The English system of con trol without ownership will not work in America. In a few words, the present idea i3 to serve the capitalists at the ex pense of the people; the affirmative idea is to serve the people with special privi leges to none. One of the strongest points of the evening Mr. Cranford flow brought in by declaring that the fact that there were so large a number of employees to be appointed would force the government to more generally adopt civil service reform, and thus giving a death blow to the spoils system. As for the telegraph, America and China are the only nations who do not own their telegraph lines. Mr. Massey said that the evils are due to the abuse of the present system, opposed to the centralizing effect of the affirmative's idea. A difficulty lay b3 fore us as to the way of getting the railroads. The government cannot force the sale of private prop erty. The railroads would cost five and half billions. It would ruin the National credit to borrow much. It would cost more to run railroads if the government owned them for there would be more extravagance. Competition elves the publio better service. Italy had a committee to investigate the sub ject for three years. It reported that governmental control is not advisable. Freight ra'es are higher in Germany when the cover n men t control than in America. Mr. Massey then closed by stating that the remedy would ba regu lation; that the present system of com missions is comparatively new out is oe ine made more effective all the time, and that it will eventually satisfy the de mands of the occasions. ich of the debates bad a reply and each ma e a spirited attack on his oppo nent'8 arguments. Mr. Cranford's reply was esDeciallv strong. The audience was requested to decide this Question on thd merits of the dis cussion. The vote stood: Affirmative 47: negative 105, thus giving it to the Hesperian s. The orations were good. Mr. Dnr ham's was strong, clear, logical, and, at times, pathetic. Mr. McCrary's was graceful, eloquent and very well de livered. The music of the Glee Club was com mended by all who heard it, especially the quartette, last night, by Messrs. Harper, Jones, J. W. Durham aDd Lee, and the vocal polo, "Leva's Old Sweet Sonsrs." by Mr. W. Jones. We feet that we shonld make special mention of the graceful and elegant manner in which Mr. D. Li.

Many visiting younr ladies from Greensboro, alem, Winston, Fayette- ville, High Point, Lexington, Albemarle and Thomasville mide the eveming very pleasant to the students. On account of the rain the athletic games were postponed till Saturday after noon. Daniels Why is Bradycrotine a success? can-'e it is ouly a headache cure and only headache cure.

A Crime Equalled Onli br Tt.oe of the Mafia The People are Terribly Iudignant. Special to Stats Cueosicle. Maxtok, N. C, April 27 On last Tuesday ni .ht about 8 o'clock a man went to the house of Mr.jfiim Conoly. near Antioch Chuich in wTia (Uobe3ori) county, and called bioi o:Z and ecquired the way to John WilkesVi neighbor. Mr. Conoly through the mdnefs of his heart walktd a short distance with the strange man, wl vft, on foot, to show him the bouse i: Wilkes, which was in sight, across " isld. They had not gone far befor lis man who was evi dently a white flu in disguise, drew his pistol and 6S4A Mr. Conoly twice in the head. ... Mr. Conoly s a bachelor, about 45, who had his pother and sister living with him, trtd they heard the pistol snots, am never leit toy alarm until a late hour.' Mr Conoly failed to return. and, being all alone, they were nnable to make search before morning, when the murdered man was found not far from his house with two balls in his . . . ..... head, jfne deed was not committed t r the purpose of robbery, as Mr. Conoh was a mn of ordinary meaDs, quiet and iucifjnsive, aud the greatest mystery clusters around tne crime. The only circumstantial evidence that has developed is that on the morning of the n?arder a suspicious looking white roan bearded the North bound freight train on the C F. & Y Y. railroad at ttn water tank near Maxton, without a ticket, and paid bis fare to Sbannot, a few miles from the 6cene of the murder. He declined to go on the passenger train when it passed the freight at Wakula, stating that he was in no special hurry. tie had witn mm a linen duster and a small hand bag. Tuesday afternoon a black man with duster closely buttoned aronnd him was seen near Mr. Conoly. On Wed needay morning a man was seen washing himself at Campbell Bridge on Lumber River, and when be saw he was discovered he fled, leaving behind a Bhirt with marks of lampblack upon it, and a pair of pants. A package of lampblack was also found floating in the water. He was undoubtedly the murderer, and the same man that traveled on the freight train the day before. And Lb imprts siou is ILat the crime was committed by an assassin from across the South Caro lina line, who was in all probability paid a smau pittance by some one who held a grudge against Mr. Conoly. it is a crime equaled only by those or the Mafia, and our people are terribly indignant at the perpetration of such a deed upon a barmles, law-abiding cm E.

A gentleman in Kaieign wrote to us for a girl; but his letter was indefinite; so we requested him to answer a few questions. Now he writes: 'I am in receipt of your reply to my letter. Will say I think my inquiry ia regard to a girl was yery plain: that I wanted one to assist my wise m the house work, not a lady to be waited upon, as your reply indicates. But ooe ro wait on me and my wife, if she suit ed me. I think sir some of your inquiries are very impertinent, and altogether foreign to the subject, But still 1 have concluded to answer them. 1st. I am not a me mber of any church, but my wife is a member of the first B iptist church. 2nd. I would send her to the graded school. 3rd. In case of Mrs. death, (that is in the tuture) She may live longer than 1, we are neither of us too old to marry again. I might keep her, I might send her back, or I might marry her. 4th. That is also in the future. It would depend entirely on herself what I should give her in case of my death or her marriage. "How much do you give them when they leave the asylum or are married ? I have seen some that did not have muob of a stock of clothes when they left your asylum. ' "5th. As to her associates, l do not consider mvself or wife too old or too iirnorant to decide who should be the eommnv for an asylum girl." We showed this letter to a girl ready to leave us.

When he left bis commandant he was in good spirits, and went to his room. Later in the afternoon be was found in a stable with the top of his head blown open by a large carbine. He was array ed in the best uniform, having changed his dress right after his visit to the com mandant. He had left his roam in per fect neatness aud order, washed the win dows even, and evidently intended when he left it never to return. No word cr line from him remains to explain' the mystery. He was universally esteemed, even much loved, by his comrades. He was for two years a student of the writer and his melancholy end is like a personal bereavement. He will be re membered by many students of Wake Forest, where he was at school in 88-89, for bis maoy excellent social qualities, and especially for his natural ability and brilliant oratory for an orator he was, and of the first order. He left Wake Forest in '89 and joined the U. S. Army at Fort Riley in the early spring of that year. There be remained and was steadily promoted un til his untimely end.

Mr. Josephts Daniels: My Dear Sir : I have this moment received your issue of the 25ih, in which appears a telegraphic report of my speech before the State Alliance of New York on the 22 J inst , in which I am reported as sayiog: "We want no third party " Another reporter of the New York Herald said my speech was "a vir tual declaration for a third party." Now, let's have the truth of the matter. I EXPRESSED NO OPINION WHATEVER AS TO A THIRD PARTY. Whatever may be my individual opin ion on that subject, 1 conceive that 1 have no right, as President of a great non-partisan organizttion, to usurp whatever of force an official expression might bring to it. It the exigences of the situation demand the formation of a third party, the people will discover it and they will have it, and I am counted to abide their decision. Hastily and truly yours, L. lu Polk. The article came to us through the regular telegraphic charnel, and we printed it without comment. We are sure that there was no intention to put Col. Polk in a false light. Editor 1 PERSONAL AND SOCIAL. Kingsbury Rev. Dr. Kingsbury, edi tor of the Wilmington Messenger, has celebrated his G5th year.

The Railroad Commission have power under Sec. 26 to fix telegraph rates from any point in this State to any other point therein. The high telegraph rates have deprived the people of this country cf the cheap and reliable exchange of ideas by telegraph and telephone which will be the post of the rapidly approaching twentieth century. In ail other ooun tries than the United States the telegraph (and in most the telephone also) is part of the P. O. Department. In them the following rates have been found to pay the government handsomely: In Great Britain and Ireland, 12 cents per message, in France 10 cents, in Austria 6 cents. As North Carolina is smaller than any of them, will not oar Commis sion take a step forward by fixing the uniform rate for all telegrams of not more than ten words in this State at ten cents?

He preaches a glorious goppel of hope and faith. It lifts up age and gives zest to youth. Long may he live ! Opening Sermon in New Tabernacle. At the eteniog service Dr. Ta Image preached his first sermon in the new church. There was again a congregation which complet-ly filled the edifice. The title of tm discourse was "Sermons in Stones." His text was from Joshua, iv, 16: "What mean ye by these stones?" He told the story of the Israelites crossing the tur bulent floods of the Jordau while the surging waters were miraculously held back, and bow they erected a monument f stone to commemorate the wonderful passage. In the course of his remarks be told the interesting story of the curi ous memorial wall which has been built into the church at the side of the pulpit. "By permission of the people of my beloved charge," he said, "I recently visited the Holy Land., and having in mind, by day and by night, during my absence, this rising house of prayer, 1 bethought myself 'what can I do to make that place significant and glorious?' "On the morning of December 3rd w were at the foot of the most sacred mountain of all the earth Mount Cal vary. There is no more doubt of the locality than of Mount Washington or Mont Blanc. On the bluff of this mouu tain, which is the exact shape of the human skull, and so called in the Bible 'The place of the skull,' there is room for three crosses. There I saw a stoue so suggestive I rolled it down the hill and transported it. It is at the top of this wall, a white stone, with crimson veins running through it, the white typical of purity, the crimson suggestive of the blood that paid the price of our redemption. We place it at the top of the memorial wall; for above all in ibis church for all time, in sermon aud pong and prayer, shall be the sacrifice of Mount Ca'vary. Look at it. That stone was one of the rocks rent at the cruci fixion. That beard the cry, 'It i fin isbed.' Was any church on earth hon ored with such a memorial?" Beneath it are two tables of stone which I bad brought from Mount Siuai, where the law was given. Three camels) were three weeks crossing the desert to fetch them. When at Cairo, Egypt, f proposed to the Christian Arab that be bring one stone from Mount Sinai. He said, "We can easier bring two rocks' than one, for we must balance them on the back of the camel," and I did not think until the day of their arrival howi much more suggestive would be the two because the law was writteu ou two tables of stone. Those stones marked with the words: 'Mount Sinai' felt the earthquake that shook the mountains when the law was given. "The lower stone of the wall is from Mars Hill, the place where Paul stood when he preached that famous sermon on the brotherhood of the human race, declaring. 'God hath made of one blood all nations.' Since Lord Elgin took the famous statuary from the Acropolis, the hill adjoining Mars Hill, the Greek gov ernment makes it impossible to transport to any other lands any Grecian antiqui ties, and armed soldiery guard not ouly the Acropolis but Mars ilul. That tone I obtained by special permis sion from the Queen of Greece, a most gracious and brilliant woman, who re oeived us as though we had been old ac quaintances, and through Mr. Tricoupis, the .Prime Minister of urece, and Mr. Snowden.our Americaa Minister Planipo potentiary, and Dr.Manatt.our American Consul, that suggestive tablet was sawed from the pulpit of rock on which Panl preached. "Now you understand why we have marked it The Gospel.' Long after my lips shall utter in this church their last message these lips of stone will tell of the Law, and the sacrifice and the Gos pel, This day I present them to this church and to all who shall gaze upon them. Thus you have my answer to the question, "What mean ye by these stones. TALVAGE AND THE NORTH CAROLINA TEACHERS. (Charlotte Chronicle.

The Alliance held a eon&iou dunnc the morning aud at 1 o'clock were we!curn-d and extended the freodom of (he city by the Hon T. T. Hicks, mayor. He was responded to by Dr. D. Keid Parker, State Lecturer of the Alliance. He mu! that the memory of this Uendtmou meeting would last forever. We U-hfv-we are right in this right. We are here fighting against combines, and o l lieve we can win. The farmers have made up their minds to settle this thing. They have been delegating men to rep resent tnetu, bat hereafter the farmer would represent himself. The Alliance has buried the hatchet of sectional Mrile. We have mixed up with the farmer of the Northwest and he is all right. We have learned that they are brethren. There are great economic questions to be studied, but we have nothiug to do ith party strife. Tho power of the people is iu tho ballot, and we will use it. We are for saving the coun try. If tbe corporations and combine continue to control the factonon what may they not do? We have bn pun ning for this convention for a few days, and while we have, the American Tbe co Company have bought the big lac tones, and are planning for others, and e'su now may have the Lorrillard fac tory. iuey will do for the oilier what they have done for the cigarette !c tories. We are here to take some action in this matter.
