Mr. McKinley s:ud that in the last political campaign tho tariff had been tho absorbing question before the people, and it semed to him that no extended i:scuiou of this great principle was ex pected or required, under existing condi (ions; for if any one thing was settled by th. politic il contest of lfeSS, it was that the protection policy as promulgated by the. republicm party in its plattorm, as miintaiced by the republican party in its platform, should be secured in any legislation which wai to bo had by a Congress cliou in this great contest, and on this mastering issue, lie inter preted the victory to mean, he inter preted the majority ia the House to mean, ha interpreted the incumbency of tho Presidency by the present Chief Executive to rneau that a revision of the tariff wai d'inauded by tho peo ple, and that that revision should bo along the line and in full recognition of the principle and purposes of protection.

Tho Democratic claim was that the heme and the foreign market were greater than tho home market, Tr.o industries of the conn try had developed until they produced 15 per ccut more than could be cjiiHumed in this country. The sur n!ii. was constantly increasing and the question was what Congress was going to do about it. Th3 Democratic way was to let down the barriers and let tho Mirpluh go out to the people who wanted it. In this extraordinary bill a now poli cy was inaugurated by which tho whole American people were taxed in order that somebody might go into a foreign market and sell cheap goods to foreign-e-s.

Chronicle Bureau, Durham, N. C, May 7, 1890. There is more money on deposit in the three banks of Durham to-day than has over been before. This tends to prove tho assert ion of prominent business men that Durham is on a better looting than ever bafore. A little girl of twelve, Lottie Walters by name, was seriously burned yester day by an explosion. She was building a lire with kor6-ene oil and the can lursted. She died a short while after tho accident. A bid of complaint was filed by the O, & 0. railroad company this morning in the clerk's office, against the town of Durham, for relief. Our mayor and commissioners were summoned to appear b-jijre Judge Womack, Juue 2d, to an - .ver the complaint. Your concqjondent was mistaken when he stated in yesterday's letter that Mr. S. E.

The insane asy lum at Longue Pointe, cine miles from here, caught fire at 11 o'clock and at 2 was a mas of flames, with no hopo of saving the building from destruction. The fire apparatus at the asylum was ut terly inadequate to control the flames and several steamers were forwarded from here on a special train. The sights on the grounds surrounding the institu tion are horrible beyond description. Hundreds of lunatics, male and female, are groped together jabbering and in a frenzied condition. The nuns are mak ing every effort to control Item avC ai lay their fears. There were 1,300 per sons in the asylum when the fire broke out. Later. Longub Point, Quebec, May 7. Dr. Duquere, government medical inspector, places the loss of life by the. destruction of the insane asylum at not less than sixty. At the ruins of the asylum noth ing but a heap of smoking brick and mortar could be seen. No vestige of the dead is to be found. In the rear of the asylum are the stables, where about one hundred male patients were quarter ed last night in charge of the Sisters and policemen. The scene is not one to be easily described, and one not to be forgotton. Lying on heaps of straw, sickly and feeble lunatics were to be seen mauuing, while gibbering, shrieking twisting and jumping, were the more sturdy ones on the lloor around them. In a spaca between two hay mows, so fierce was tho expression on the count enauca of these luuatics. At the laund ry were 100 patients, mostly quiet per sons, whose aid had been taken advant age of in putting things in shape. They were in charge of John O'Rourke, whose heroism last night saved twelve lunatics from the flames when all hope had been abandoned of beiug able to save them. O'Rourke, his brother James and William Kiggins climbed the veran das on the outside of the asylum, and cut through a floor and passed the 12 women, one by one, to his brother, who in turn passsd them to Higgms, and thus they were safely lowered to the ground. One of the attendants said that even lay nuns, who did work about the the ifjstitution, perished in the flames. I' is nr, yet impossible to get a list of those who lost their lives, owing to the . ? .u:,i- i.:m :i. i luniusiou wuica sua prevails. ' Thf loss financially is placed as high i as $1,50-.), 000 with insurance of $300,000. I Early this morning the lunatics we j removed to places of safety and the pro ! cession is yet in progress. Tho whole length of the road is crowded with vehicks The numbar of the dead is a mere m utter of speculation but the gen eral opinion is teat it caunot be fewer than one hundred uul perhaps nearly double that. A Probable Reunion of the Christians North and SouthThe Next Conven tion Invited to Raleigh. The General Convention of the Chris tian Church is in session at Suffolk, Va. On the first day (last Friday) Rev. J. P. Barrett, D. D., of Raleigh, chairman of committee on revison was allowed the privilege of making some explanation in reference to the paper to be presented, and asked the forbearance of the con vention until the report could be for mally brought before the body. The special order of the second day was the election of delegates to the American Christian Convention. After a long and tedious presentation of the interests, North and South, by represen tatives of each convention, the ques tion was decided in the affirmative. This, in all probability, will unite the Christian Church North and South as they were before the war. The reports indicate progress. The question of the meeting place of the next convention coming up, Rev. M. E. Hurley invited the convention to meet with the Holly Neck Church, and Eev. J. L. Foster, extended an invitation for the convention to meet with his charge at Raieigh. The matter was referred to the Exec utive Committee with instructions that they select some place in North Caro lina, if possible. A resolution that the conference be requested to provide a fund to pay the expenses of the delegates to the conven tion was offered and adopted. O i yesterday Rev. J. P.

Mary Ann Dougherty, W hoe Pension Cleveland Vetoed, Again Intoxicated. Washington, D. C, May 6. Several years ago President Cleveland vetoed a private pension bill which Congress passed in favor of Mrs. Mary Dougherty. His veto was based on the ground that the woman's habits were notoriously in temperate and that she was notapioper person to be thus singled out after the officials of the Pension Office had de clined to grant her claim. During the Presidential campaign ot 1888 Mary Ann Dougherty became a national issue. By that peculiar process of political alchemy wuicn me rvepuoncau party managers understood so well Mrs. Dough erty was made to pose as a martyr. II er nme was paraded from one end of the laud to the other as a model of domestic and womanly virtues, and the Presi dent's veto of her bill, it was claimed, arose from no other motive than that of alleged hatred of the old soldiers and their families. -When the campaign ended Mrs. Dough erty was given a small place in one of the departments. In a short while she was dismissed for drunkenness. She next figured iu the police courts as a drunken and disorderly character, and on the occasion cf her last appearance there was discharged with the under standing that she would immediately leave town. The Star this evening brings her record down to date iu the following paragraph : "Shortly after the Senate adjourned to day and while a number of Senators were still on the floor Mary Ann Dough erty, of Cleveland-veto fame, proceed ed in a maudlin manner to address the a semblage below from the gallery. Only a few incoherent remarks reached the. Senatorial ears and she soon tired of speech making. Ore or two indistinct references were made to 'Cleveland, 'but there was no response.

The loss is estimated at $2,500,000. - The weekly pay roll of the works amounted to $10,-000. A story illustrating the innate honesty of Senator Beck, even in his early days, was related last night by a gentleman who was thoroughly well acquainted with him. Mr. Beck, the gentleman said, was employed in Cynthiana, Ky., about one ot the stables there. Here he came undei the notice of Gen. John C. Breckinridge, w7ho was attracted to him by his intelligence, industry and good nature. General Breckinridge was one of the leading lawyers of his section at H03IE-SPUN YARNS. "I Gits the Most Men Thar the Quick est." Special Cor. of State Ohionk lk .i Most of us are familiar with tiie reply a certain gallant General made when asked the secret of his success. It was hard common sense, nothing more: the seems what was needed and 'gitten' thar'' without regard to conventional methods. There is pleasure in seeing difficulties met and overcome, and the simpler and more unexpected tho meth od the more it pleases. Something, akin, perhaps, to that unexpected asso ciation of idea3 we call wit. It is just this sort of pleasure that comes to one when sometimes we see mule teams doubled for a moment on a load sunk to the hubs in mud. The teamster draws his iines, cracks his whip, applies unmentionable names: the indignant mules strain to their bel lies, the trace chains groan, the wheels creak out of the mud, and tho whole great mass rolls easily up the hillside. It was not long ago that an honest old squire in North Carolina doubled teams in much the same way to tike the Acts of the Legislature up a mighty steep hill. It teems that in a certain valley beyond the Blue Ridge there is a little clearing that can produce watermelons. It is rare that melons grow bahind the Ridge, and among a watermelon loving people this tract is a prime favorite. But year after year the result has fcceu the same. The melons have prospered: so much is known. But when the tiller could al most hear the silver clinking in his pecket the rest is unknown. Some times a cow came homo with the odor of rind on her breath, or a pig grunted more contentedly in the woods. B-sycnd this mystery. But last spring old man Callaway said ho "know'd a thing or two," and he'd "crap thet clearin1 on sheers."' Tho melons prospered beyot d ail precedent. There were hundreds of them as big as a man could tote. Old Callaway had winked and chuckled. Ho "know'd a thing or two," and the settlement was expectant. Just before the fruit thump ed hollow a sign-board appeared on the rail fence. "Sevril of Them Mcllions is Pizen.' Tho next morning every melon in ! the patch had been crushed and stamp ed mto tne muu. In due process of time and law cer tain youths were charged before Squire Wilson with the deed. But the attor ney for the defenc3 argued "thet seein' thar want narry witness agia 'em, an bein' as the evidence war circumstan tial an1 mighty slim. at that.he Tow'd tho Judge would discharge prisoners without no foolin'." The Judge drew down his spectacles, moved his chair nearer the window, and read aloud all the Legislative literature bearing on the subject. Theu, summing up, ne caargea mat ,'As you say, Bill, thar aiut nobody as seen them boys thar, an' it haint been proved up clar an' squar as them tracks is tharn, an' as you 'low'd tharaint carry act of the leg -islater as gits ter 'em, bein' as how it is. But Bill, I b'lieve them boys busted them mellions, an' I'm go'n' to fine 'em ten dollars." And fined they were, which not being paid they improved the public road for a term of one month.

Over the W ork of Judge Lyuca-sorae Doubt a to the Victim's Guilt. IBy United Press. Columbus, S. C, May 7. The cor- oner s jury in tne case oi tne negro Willie Leaphart, who was lynched in jail on Sunday night, yesterday rendered a verdict that Leaphart came to his death at the hands of persons unknown. This verdict was given, it is said in the face of the fact that evidence had been given positively identifying four or five citizens, who were among the lynchers. The Governor yesterday made public the affidavits upon which he had respited Leaphart. These affidavits show' that there is great doubt of Leaphart being guilty of the charge of rape, ana mat it is even doubtful that a rape had been commit ted or attempted. a copy ot tsiacKstoue ana gave it to young Beck. He lead it thoroughly aud showed such strong desire to become a lawyer that Gereral Breckinridge took him into his office at Lexington, Ky. Here he entered the law school of Tran sylvania University, from which he was graduated in 1846. Wben General Breckinridge went into the late war, Mr. Beck, who was his law partner, took charge of his affairs and of his law practice. Gen. Breckin ridge at that time owned a large tract of undeveloped land in the Northwest. Mr. Btck managed the law practice and interests committed to his care so judic iously and honestly that he was subse quently able to turn over to Mrs. Breck inridge $150,000. This incident, it is said, becoming known, aided materially in his first election to Congress. Farmers' Alliance Funds Squandered. A Thirteen-Year-Old Boy's Suicide. (By United Press.) Contoocook, N.
