Prof. W. C. Kiddick is spoken of as his successor. It begins to look as though the moun tains and the sea coast will about equally divide the patronage of Raleigh this season. Some people are keen enough to come to Raleigh to spend the summer. It has been suggested that the meeting of the chamber of commerce be post poned from next Tuesday night to some other time. Rev. Mr. Dixon's lecture and the Wake Forest commencement are on hand for the same night. There was a merry scattoration on the streets yesterday afternoon when the rain struck the town. Fayetteville street was fnll of vehicles and people but in two minutes everything was liter ally waslei off the thoroughfare. Now. will the board of county com - missioners set about beautifying the court hoase square? It seems a pity to letve undone what could be so easily done, and would add so largely to the ' teiuty of the street. The german given at Henry Hall last night by the Monogram club, compli mentary to members of the graduating class of the State University was an ele gant affair. There were quite a number of visiting ladies and gentlemen present. One man was heard sighing yesterday for the return of the old linen duster days, fle didn't tell his age and nobody knows how old he is; but he said there was once a time when a linen duster and a palm leaf fan constituted the summer attire of a gentleman. A big-hearted gentleman was heard osterday expressing sympathy for the people of those towns which had no shade trees such weather as this : and his remarks suggested that the matter of shade should by no means be the least thing for the consideration or itaietgo people. The city is far ahead of any other place in the State in handsome trees now, but there is room for more. "Speaking about hotels " These were the words of a gentleman on the street yesterday, when he was interrupted by Bomo one anting; "woo is speaking about hotels ?" The first speaker looked blank for a second and then said: "That's a fact; nobody is saying enough about building a grand hotel here, and I have just about concluded that until Raleigh builds one, she can't expect to do much else." Will somebody start the ball! V 1 . - "Are you going to Kimball?" is a ttoDular Question on the Raleigh streets. It won't be long before many people will be wishing to gracious they had never gone there. The idea of intelligent men putting themselves up to be manip ulated by a syndicate with seven mil lions of dollars is is wull, it looks mighty funny to other intelligent men. The sure way to make money is to invest in some business which returns a steady, legitimate income a cotton factory or a big hotel tor instance in Raleigh.

The academy is one of the foremost in stitutions of Raleigh, and it has a record of having begun the training and educa tion of hundreds of men whose names are now mdissolubly connected with im portant parts of the history of the State and nation.

AFFAIRS. - The Light Matter Again The City Will Demand a Reduction From the Ueginning The Tomb of Jonathan Rex.r The city board of aldermen met in regular session last night. The street committee was authorized to consider the advisability of widening Martin street from Salisbury street to the new depot site. Alderman Wilder, from the light com mittee, presented the following report: The City Lights. The light committee, at the request of the mayor and C. M. Hawkins, Esq , president of the Raleigh Lighting, Heating and Power company, met at the office of the mayor on May 5th, to consider the question of settlement of the amouut in dispute between the city and the said company. Your committee recommend to the board that the said Lighting, Heating and rower company be held to the per formance of their contract with the city pursuant to tbe contract, and the award of Mr. John Devreux, Jr., and W. N. Jones, arbkrators, to-wit: 1. That said. Lighting and Heating and Power Co. , be requested to furnish a 1,200 candle power light as provided In contract in said award. 2. That the city demand of said com pany the reduction of 425-1200 of the contract price for the light from tbe time the contract went into force, viz: July 1st, 1888, pursuant to said award, and make a settlement with said company accordingly. E. H. Lee, Chairman. This report raised a very lively discus sion, it will be remembered that tne city contract calls for electric light of 1,200 candle power each. Some time at ter the system went into operation, it was tested, and itwas reported that the lights were only 775 candle power. The question discussed was whether or not the city should demand from tne company a reduction of42oi-2UOoi the contract price from the time the system went into operation (July 1st, 1888); or from tbe time when the test was made. , Tbe report of the light committee (as above) was adopted, which means that the city will demand the reduction from the beiMcning of tho operation of the system. Tbe cemetery committee was requested to look alter the resetting of the tomb stone of the late Jonathan Rex in the city cemetery, and report at the next meeting.

The exercises were opened with prayer by 'Rev. Dr. J. W. Carter. Maj. Hi. G. Harrell was presented and delivered an address on the Raleigh Male Academy. Maj. E. G. Harrell spoke fo- some momentsnot too long but made a de lightful talk which was appreciated and enjoyed by all present. He said that during the past session there had been one hundred students in attendance, and already there were indications of an increased enrollment next session. He said that he he had been at the State University during the week, and while there he was told by one of the faculty that Morson & Denson's Academy had supplied, during the last session, about one-tenth of the entire enrollment of the pupils of that famous institution. This was a fact that Raleigh should be especially proud of; but this was not all he had heard while he was (here. These same students from Morson & Denson's Academy stood higher in their studies nd examinations than the pupils from any other academy or preparatory school in the State, A Pretty Prophecy. Maj. Harrell made a very pleasant little prophecy in the course of his remarks. He had a vision in his mind's eve. In the near future he saw the famous Mor son & Denson school located on , a mag nificent lot of ten acres or more near the city. He heard the long roll beat of the drum, and in response to that in spiring rattle, he saw from three to four hundred boys, dressed in handsome uni forms, forming into companies and bat tallions cn the gieen, and then he saw them executingjdrills and manoeuvres which excited the admiration and ap plause of multitudes of onlooking peo ple, Mr. Harrell closed his remarks by tliaakiog the prin ;ipals of the school, on behalf of the city and parents of the pupils, for maintaining a school of such nigh standing and excellence in the eity of Raleigh. Report of Distinctions. After Mr. Harrell's address, Capt. C. B. Denson read the records of the pupils in tneir auties during the past year. Several of them attained marks of 100, and in this connection Capt. Denson sta ted that when a boy attained that mark in the academy, it was an evidence of earnest and genuine work. Rev 'Dr. Cordon's Address. The annual address was delivered by Rev. Dr. CordeD. He took for his sub ject, the "Power of Intellect." He spoke vigorously and earnestly and in terestingly. He advanced various pro positions, among which was that knowl edge was the food and drink or the soul, and prepared a man for whatever might bo his vocation in life. He referred with enthusiasm to the existence of schools and colleges and universities all over the land which meant an in creasing dissemmination of knowledge in the world. He saU that it had been formerly sain that "a little learning is a daDgerous thing," but in this ' day of light it might be said that a little learn ing is a disgraceful thing. He appealed to his bearers to acquire a full knowl edge of something. He urged that it was better to - have one weapon with a knowledge of how to use it effectually, than to wear a full glittering armor, not knowing how to manage or utilize it. It is better to be a Sampson with the jaw of an ass, than to be a weakling clad in all the paraphernalia of the full armored knight. Dr. Cordon also refeired to the number and standing of the stu dents of the academy now at various Colleges. He said that last year, there were seventeen at the State University, six at Wake Forest College, one at Da vidson, three at the A. and M. College, and one at the United States Naval academy. He said he was gratified to note that the pupils of the Raleigh acad emy had many honors conferred on them bv the colleges which they had entered. At the State University commencement, three of them had held important posi tions in connection with the very inter esting commencement exercises. At Da vidson College, one would be one of the debaters elected by his society at the coming commencement. The chief marshal from the Enzelian Society at the Wake Forest College oemmencement would be one of the Raleigh Academy boys, fcc. Conferring of Distinctions.

H. & R, S Tucker & Co. Sixty Miles an Honr. Is fast time but 100 yt an rrom to-day 100 miles an hour will not be considered fast. Those who live in the latter part of the 20th century will be whirled from New York to San Francisco and back in the same day. Time and distance will be .annihilated, and what we call pro gressive and aggressive of to day will be laughed at then and called old fogy. The most of us think the world is going fast enough now and that we are up to and some times ahead of the times'. For instance, we sell a fig ured lawn at three cents a yard, and a good challie for five cents. These are lower prices than we have ever seen any where else; and yet 100 years hence it will be given away if they have any such thing at that day. We have a beautiful line of summer woolen goods which we are closing at prime cost. We take one long step of say twenty-five years ahead and imitate those merchant princes of that day and consider that th9 first sacrifice is always the best. We are always ahead in style and quality of our goods, and our prices are so much, lower than others that they cannot duplicate them in 100 years, Swindell's.

August has fluctuated between 12.07a 12.12 and closes at 13.09. July has been relatively the weakest month on the list, and the premiums on that position have become narrower than for some time. The chances of a corner in either July or August seem to be less imminent.

The New York Chamber of Commerce, in their thirty-second annual report, pub- -lish a careful review of the tea trade, giv ing special attention to some gross abuses calculated to curtail the use of tea. The report says: "The demand for low-priced com mon tea is growing materially, les sening the use of good and fine teas, and the efforts of the trade to supply customers with tea for price will resale in lessening the consumption of X.u". It encour ages the importatii .. 'f common - tea, and must result disastrously to the business. T. n producing countries can supply ia unlimited quantity of poor tea i.iat is really not fit for consumption. "Prizes which have been given away by retail stores, possibly may account pomewhat f js the de mand for low-grade teas, but it seems hardly credible that consum ers expect to get as good a tea with a prize, at a certain price, as they could obtain for the same price and not pay for the extra article." Why will not the general public listen to a warning from so high an authority, and consider the great advantage to their own health and pocket, to be got by exer cising more thought in the selection of their teas It is also to be noted that the chief sufferers from "tea kot fit for con sumption" are just those who can least afford tOiWaste their money. As long ago as 1875 all of the facts about tea and its abuses were given in the Baltimore press by Messrs. Gillett & Co. They have been un tiring in their efforts to open tCe eyes of the public to such abuses. Possibly their motive was their own profit, for all that time they were introducing their He-No tea. All the same, the result has been a public benefit, and the favor won by a good tea such as He-No is, proves thot Baltimoreass, to a considerable, extent, have heeded the seasonable courjw of theGillets. Your Grocer can supply yon with. Ka-Xo-Tea at 75 cents per pound package; 40 cents, per half pound package; or 20 cents per 1-4 pound package.
