The spacious buildings and stable Raleigh ought to have a jubilee on the next Fourth of July. Let the ball be put in motion at once. And let it bo remembered that she must lay her self out in fact in 1892, which will be the centennial year of her charter. "What a beautiful and delightful place Raleigh is," was the remark of a stranger yesterday. Id truth there are few Raleigh people who seem to have a proper appreciation of their lovely city. It is simply glorious to take a stroll over the town in the bright early morning. Try it and see how you like it. spacious yards on Morgan street will be the cattle corals ana norse staoies auring me iair.

Just put it down! This is going to be the best and mo3t interesting cattle show ever seen iu North Carolina. The Wake County Cattle Club is determined that it shall be such, and the club is receiv ing the cordial and enthusiastic support There is a hope prevalent that some- of tne citizens and many cattle raisers thing will soon be done to reorganize in the county. and rejovenate the Raleigh Cornet Band. sale ot Fine Cattle. The only hope seems to be the purchase On the day of the show, just after the ot tne instruments Dy uie cuy. me crand street parade, there will be both city can then hold the instruments in rpublic and private sales of cattle. The years, beginning on or Derore tne aviu day of March 1893, twenty or more up to fifty electric arq lights, guaranteed to be of 1,200 candle power each, ana as good in every respect as the Thompson - Houston svstem of electric lights of equal power. 2. That from the evidence Oerore us, we find that the average candle power of the lights now furnished by the said company to the said city is 775 actual candle power. - 3. It was admitted the machine and apparatus used by the said company are those of the Thompson-Houston system, and are their standard 1,200 candle power apparatus. 4. We rind from the evidence that the term 'I,U0 candle power" nas no gen eral and definite meaning in the trade, as each electric system give3 a different amount of candle power under a con- ti-oof no 11 i n nr fnv 1 90ft rorAa i-irkr. fir l i x 1 VIUVU VU114Un A. 1. .L.IVWV UkAUVIlU ' W 11 Wf A W - ik a a a a n maaH y i. n " iin , I . ... i i 1 -7 I A I irusb lur tuo use w uj wv saies win occur at ine snow grouuas, anv other amount. tin, nlii.1i man nin)i tn n tham I 3 1 l ;i: 111 1 IV n I f . . THE OLDEST MAN YET. He lUmembers When Crabtrec Creek 'was a Spring Branch. Talk about your old men, bnt Wake beats the reoord so far, provided the in dividual referred to has made a correct statement. At the county work house there is a man named Isaac Crawley. He is quite aged, and moves with great deliberation and precision. Yesterday some one ventured to remark on the slowness of his movements. He made a short re tort and wound up by saying "I'm er gittin old.'1 "How old are you" asked Superintendent Allen, who stood near. "I dunno ezactly" said the old man, "bat I remembers, when Crabtree creek wern't nuthln but a spring branch." This settles it. Wake evidently has the oldest man. An Old Confederate Testament. The Chronicle was shown yesterday a quaint copy of a Confederate Testa ment, including the Psalms, which waa printed and issued by the Confederate States Bible Society, in Augusta, in the year 1802. This book has evidently been carried through some stirring campaigns, and its reader seems to have applied many things found therein to the condi tions surrounding him. It is profusely marked all through. One passage, show ing a particularly heavy mark, forcibly strikes the person who may examine the volume. It is the first verse of the 43d Psalm, and reads thus : "Judge me, oh God, and plead my cause against an un godly nation; oh deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man." It is very evident that the Confederate owner of the book applied this passage to the people against whom he was fight ing. The volume is now in the posses sion of Mr. Howard Haywood. and good opportunities will be offered for buying some of the finest bred stock in all this whole county. Reduced Rates. People who intend coming to tho show will find tickets on sale at the railroad stations at greatly reduced rates. The schedule of the R. & D. line is announced to-day. The Lee Monument. A Paris correspondent writes: "Crit ics declare the Lee monument is equal if not superior to any equestrian work at Paris. It is forty feet high, forty-one feet across and weighs eight tons, and is the result of four year's careful study. The horse alone was a years labor. The statue was cast in eight sections and was six months in the foundary. The pedestal is twenty-one feet high, mak ing the total height sixty-one feet. It is of granite, almost white as marble; four columns of polished blue granite are on either side. The base is designed for the statues of six generals who served with Lee, The three selected at present are Stonewall Jackson, J. . B. Stuart and A. P. Hill." 5. We find from the evidence that the 1,200 candle power machine of the Thompson-Houston system does not give an actual power of 1,200 candles. We find from these facts as conclu sions from law: 1st. That under the con tract he lighting company is obliged to furnish and the city is entitled to call for 1,200 actual candle power. 2nd. That there is a breach in the contract by the lighting company in that they have only furnished 77 actual candle power. 3rd. That the said lighting company is entitled to receive 775-1200 of the amount agreed to be paid per lamp under the contract above mentioned, and the said city is entitled to a reduc tion of 425-1200 of the amount agreed to be paid for per lamp as aforesaid. ' The price per light according to the contract wa3 $80,00 per annum; but under the return of the committee, the price will be $51.66 2-3 per light, dating from the time the system went into operation. There are fifty-nine lights,and the total annual reduction amounts to $1,388,33. New York, May 7. Messrs. "Hub bard, Price & Co. in their cotton cir cular to-night say : lenders were again freely offered in Liverpool to-day, mak ing in all a total of some 65,000 bales tendered since the first or May. Uf this amount our cables tell us that 64, 000 bales have been taken up by the merchants whese operations were so successful in Liverpool last season.
