THE REPUBLICAN MAJORITY GROWING. " SATURDAY, JUNE 7, 1890. A NEW DEPARTURE. Line noon Line" has been the course mine. ; of Tut Chbosiclk in the agitation of the 1 question of how to compel tax-payers ' to list solvent credits (as well as real es- ' tate) and pay taxes on them. The recent ' " decision of the ' SuDreme Court compels ' parties to list and pay city taxes upon : solf ent cfedits as well as State and coun ty, taxes. . It is yery important that ,, ; something be done to compel parties to list all personal property. The Board of V' ' Aldermen of Charlotte have taken a step i following from the Charlotte Chronicle: : i The Board of Aldermen, has unani , mously adopted a resolution. to publish '! the tax list of personal property returns t for the city of Charlotte, four -times in the Chronicle when , the list is revised . During the discussion of the matter, . it was generally admitted - that ,the re . tarns of personal property are below aotnal value, and even much below the scale of assessment, of real estate. In expiainea ruie oi action, u is assessed at only three-fourths its market-under-tbehammer value. A study of the re- , , turns of personal property for the last . , year will impress one with the idea that (the valuation does not exceed one quar t ter of the .true value. These self-ar-i i ranged, assessments, are like the real estate assessment, by an' unlawful, and ., nnwarranted and unjustifiable "common i ..-, consent, , . . ; : Bald an honorable- gentleman to the . .reporter;; yesterday: "Why, these re turns under oath are pure matters of . ; : form. . -I, never think of returning my .... household effects at more than the av - erage. , The oath businesi is all bosh. , . , Custom is the law. When my neighbor .- whose household effects cost f 1,500 and i . are worth $1,000, returns them at $300, I strike the same average." , The Bard of Aldermen recognizing this state of affairs have concluded, that u it Is well , to let the whole community know just what each one returns This -' may stimulate the individual to ahigher appreciation of his household effects and . of his other personal property. a When one sells his neighbor taxable petsonal- ity, the purchaser, knowing thaUhis re turns will be placed under the p yes of ,; the person from whom he bought, will , not be apt to forget that purchase in his returns. . . " Anyhow, it Is well for the public who HOMESPUN YARNS. (Sanford Express.) Mr. M. McG. Shields delivered the literary address at the Dover academy in Western Moore county on last week. His subject was "The Value of Exalted Ideals." The speech was elegantly written and delivered with the dignity and pose of an Edward Everett. When he had closed, the home-made string band, with its bones and banjos, struck up "Old Molly Hare, What You Doing Dare?" It is the same band that round ed up Rev. Mr. Watson's speech last vear with "That cal looked at me and I looked at her, and I wish that gal was POLITICAL GOSSIP. Greene county Democrats will 4iold their county convention 3 une 21 st. The Lenoir county Democratic Con vention will bo held on the 21st of June. The primaries will be held June 14th. :. Mr. R. N. Hackett, of Wilkes, will be a candidate for the Democratic nomina tion for Solicitor in the 9th judicial dis trict. He is one of the brightest men in the district, would make a brilliant can vass and a fine officer. Statesville Land mark. Committee Chairman. (Tarboro Southerner.) It has been suggested that Ex-Gov. Jarvis be selected to succeed Judge Spier Whitaker. as chairman of the State Democratic Executive Committee It is a happy one. No , man probably in the State is so well qualihed as he. '. No man is moreen report with the people than Thomas J. Jarvis. His dem ocracy is of the soundest. His astute ness and good judgment is of first-class order, as has been demonstrated in many campaigns. At the head of the party the Democ racy will go into the coming campaign with conhdence and enthusiasm. . He is the very man for the place. E. W. POU FOR SOLICITOR. Hit Candidacy Not Connected With Either ot the Judicial Aspirants. Special Cor. of State Chronicle. The Democrats of Johnston and Har nett counties seem generally united in support of our countyman, Mr. E W. Pou, for solicitor of this district. He is the man for the place and we all want him nominated. Now I want to tell how, in my opinion, we can certainly nominate him. Let every township send to the convention serious and earn est 'men as delegates who will exert themselves and give their steadfast sup port to our nominee. Johnston county never has gotten anything heretofore, and it is partly due to the fact that when it has presented a candidate to the con vention, it has generally been with the idea of being a compliment &c. Now let us go into this contest with no such idea; but with the full determination of nominating E. W. Pou, Jr., for solicitor. Ewart and Brower in Favor of a Na tional Election Law Other News. (Special Cor. State Chronicle.) Washington, June : 4 When - the House to-day unseats Representative Turpin and puts Judge McDuffie in ' his place, the Republican majority will be an even 20, 174 Republicans and 154 Democrats. This will be increased a couple by the unseating of Mr. Elliott, of South Carolina, which is on the pro gramme for this month. At the organ ization of the present Congress the Re publican majority was only right, but now they. have a very comfortable mar gin. Featherstone, of Arkansas, is not a strict Republican, having been elected by the farmers' organization known as the Wheel. -However, he was adopted by the Republicans, who gave him the seat to which Congressman Gate was certified. Mr. Featherston rewarded his Republican associates by voting against the McKinley bill. There are two vacancies in the House, one caused by the death of David Wiiber, of New York, and the other day by the election of Ex Speaker Carlisle to the Senate. As one was a Republican and the other a Democrat, it will make no change in the relative majority when these two vacancies are filled. Mr. Brower has succeeded in getting a favorable report on his bill to erect a public building at Winston, N. C. His bill appropriating ?25,UUU for a public building at Reidsville, N. C, has pass ed the House and will certainly pass the Senate. Mr. E. R. Lewis, of the War Depart ment, a native of Edgecombe county, N. C, has gone to the Hot Springs, Asheville, and other points of interest m Buncombe county. He is a direct des cendant of Col. Edward Buncombe, for whom the county was named. A young Virginian now living in this city who was at the unveiling of the Lee statue in Richmond, says the North Car olinia troops were the finest looking body of men that he had ever seen.

Ex-Governor Wm. Pitt Kellogg is back from Louisiana, by way of Chica go, with an apt story illustrating Mr. Harrison's popularity among the colored people of the South. This is the way he tells it: "I was sitting in my room at the St. Charles Hotel, in New Orleans, when old Dr. Lyons, who has charge of the lar gest colored church in Carrolltion, came in with a subscription book for his church. I asked him" how much he thought I ought to give; I gave it and then said:. 'Elder, what do your people think aoout the administration f 7 Well, Governor," he said, "I will just tell you. You Temember Mr. Scott, don t you, who keeps a stationary and general store on uravier street, and who used lobe something of a Keoublicau? well, l went to him for a subscription. He told me times were hard and money was scarce, but, said he, 'I'll tell you what I can do. I have got a lot of fine steel engravings of President Harrison. which I will give you if yon like to take them. They cost me 121 cents a piece; you can sell them for. what you like and give the money to the church." "To make the story short," continues Kellogg, 4the elder jumped at the offer. Scott counted him out a hundred prints, and he Augged them home under -his arm. A few days afterward there was a church fair and a big meeting. Dr. Ly ons announced to tne oretnren and sis Mr. Eaves left the city last night. He says Commissioner Mason and Mr. Ewart tell him be is all right, and he is stiil confident. This may be so, but it is a most peculiar case of procrastina tion. Some of the Southern Republican Con gressmen are disposed to reconsider their previously announced opinions respect ing the federal election bill. Two North Carol in ia members of the House express. ed themselves to-day as follows: Mr. Brower said that he had not been favorable up to now to making any sweeping change in the electoral sys tem, but the fact had developed within a day or two (that the South Carolina plan was to be applied to the counties in his district, and he claimed that as this put him at a disadvantage he would have, in self-defense, to support some measure giving the Federal government supervision. He would not support an extreme, sectional measure, however. Mr. Ewart said that the chief point of difficulty was in the absolute powers with which the registrar was invested. He could, under the new law in North Carolina, ask such questions as many voters could not answer, such as what year and where were you born, etc. Ihese Republican members say that the law in question is one intended to work to the disadvantage of their party and is unfair in a number of ways. They therefore feel that at the next caucus they will have to support some plan for giving the Federal government control of elections, although averse to so doing. One of the complained of provisions in the North Carolina law is that which leaves the location of the voting discre tionary with the managers of the elec tion, and by which the Republicans charge, many votes will be lost to their party. The provisions of the law are optional and do not apply necessarily to to all parts of the State. The Demo crats deny that they have the effect claimed by the opposition. There is no such provision of the North Carolina law. Editob.1 LITTLETON FEMALE COLLEGE. Special Cor. of State Chronicle .1 The commencement exercises of this excellent school for young ladies, came off the 4th and 5th of this month. (Wednesday and Thursday of this week.) The last session was the most prosper ous in the history of the school. There were seven graduates, and all who heard their essays, pfonounced them equal, if not superior, to any thine ever heard. Large additions are being made to the building, and Rev. J. M. Rhodes is suc ceeding finely in making his school one of the finest in the State. , - Littleton is a beautiful town, with one thousand inhabitants. It is noted for good water and good health. The so ciety in and around the town is noted for culture and refinement. The Rev. Mr. Ogburn, of the Metho dist Protestant church, preached the annual sermon, and Dr. Mercer, of Edgecombe county, delivered the liter ary address. Both of these gentlemen acquitted themselves well.
