J)itoe: 1 seat, myself to write you a few lines to second my own nomi- AN OLD CALUMNY EXPLODED The Hew York Herald thinks that Mb. DiPfcw bas. made himself solid in the great West for the Presidency. :J?rom the time whereof the memory of man runneth not to the contrary Chicago wo men have been made the victim of ribald and unseemly laughter about "govern- nation to a county office. ment elevens made under ashed." -While In the first place I am the choice of in Chicago a few days ago, Mb. Depiw th people. Squire Perkins says so and was requested to make a report concern- ne Knows nearly every body m Wake j intf the diminutive pedal extremities of county. I think the man ' who is the Chicago ladies and so dispose ot a ca- lumnious and libellous superstition. The Herald says that the gallant New Yorker was ouike eaual to the occasion. In- deed, he towered above it as the Egyptian obelisk from the low lands of Central Park. He filched the heart of every maiden and matron by the solemn asser tion that the Chicago girl resembles the heroine of Sir John Suckling's song: petticoat, A wise, wealthy man who desires to be a public benefactor is compelled in tnese days to be his own executor. If a man wants to found a Home for women, as did the late A. T. Stiwabt, ora library for the public, as did . the late Simuxl J. Tilde?, he must see to all the arrangements while living and even then it is difficult to be certain that some quibble of law will not cast aside bis charitable Intention. The public is familliar with the mis carriage of Ho. Stewart's intention to famish a home for the working girls of New York. When Mr. Txlden be queathed a large sum, and devised Gram mercy Parkas a site for a Public Library for New York, another library was to be established at Yonkew, ; and -' a third at . Mr, Tildbji's birth place in central New York. - : There was a provision in the will which forbade the legatees from con testing th will under the pain of for feiting their legacies. Notwithstanding this Georok Tilden, a nephew and one of the legatees, instituted objections to the probate of the will before Surrogate Ransom in 1880, shortly after the death of Mr. Tildxn. The ground of the con test was that the power conferred on the trustees was unconstitutional, illegal and void. After hearing the arguments of counsel on both sided, the Surrogate Admitted tt.will .to; probate. The suit was. then brought in the Su preme, Court and ft was understood that Mb. Gbobgi Tilden had the sanction and support of the other collateral heirs. Judge Lawrznoe deoided in 1888 that the trust was legal. It then went to the General Trm, which reversed the de cision, declared the trust illegal and sent the case back to the Supreme Court for a new trial! Wednesday Judge Bkach Her feet beneath her Like little mice stole As if they feared the light . pet in and out. HOW LABOR IS PROTECTED, Congressman R. Q. Mills. The manufacturer paid $1.25 to labor for producing a ton of pig iron. The government gave him $6.72 in order to enable him to pay that $1.25. The manufacturer paid labor $3 for produc ing a ton of steel rails, the government gave him $17 to enable him to pay it. Why not the manufacturer give the $17 to the workiugmen instead of turning them out of work and going on tally-ho rides through the mountains of Scot land f NO BIBLE FOR STEEPLE8. Recently a storm struck a Baptist church and shattered the steeple into splinters. Commenting on this, MR. J. EL MILLS says in his own original way: Like to know what business ' any Bap tist Chnrch has with, a steeple) . The Word is not in the Bible. Take your steeple money and build churches where there are hone, and so lot more people hear the gospel. PENSIONS AND . STANDING MIES. AR The New York Herald keepB the fol lowing article standing at the head of its editorial column : . In 1888 We Paid in pensions $80,288, 508.77. ; In. 1889 we paid $87,624,779 11. The cost of the German army, it may be interesting to note, is for this year esti mated at - $91,726,293. Besides onr pensions ur army costs $30,000,000. SOCIAL EQUALITY. AN OPINION OF SAM JONES. (J. H. Mills in Charity and Children.) So we are in favor of letting this theo logical whirlwind twist as it pleases. The North Carolina Republicans AT HOME deny that they believe in Social Equality.' In Washington THEY PRACTICE it. upheld the decision of the General Term Read our Washington special to-day, and ordered the Tilden trust money distributed - and the Gramercy Park house soldr in order . that the pro ceeds may be divided among the heirs. A stay of proceedings will be asked for and the case will go to the General Term, and from thore to the Court of Appeals before a final decision may be reached. As a constitutional question Is involved the case may be transferred to : the Supreme Court of the United This is another, example to rich men which should induce them to be their own; executors, Mr. Tildin ought to have established these libraries in his life, and opened, them to the public. Then those for whose benefit the money was bequeathed would receive the ad vantages without delay. Besides a man can carry out his own beneficent inten tions better than any trustees. At a meeting of Baptists in Chicago, to raise funds for their university, De. Goodspeed announced contributions of $27,000 from the Jews of that city, wherepon there was enthusiastic ap plause, followed by the singing of "Ye Chosen Seed of Israel's Race." - HOMESPUN YARNS. choice of the people ought to be nomi nated. Don't you? - In the next place, my section of the county has not bad a man in a single office in ten years and my friends won't vote the Dimouratic ticket if we don't have recognition. Another reason is there are a great many Republicans who belong to the same church I do (I'm not going to say in yonr paper what church that is; I'm too sharp for that) and they'll vote for me, but they won't vote for any other Democrat but me. Some of them told me so. My minister has promised me to talk up for me too, if I am nominated. Another reason for my nomination is, I belong to the Farmers' Alliance and my Alliance has endorsed me. We have three white Republicans in, our Alliance and they voted to endorse me too and told me afterwards that if I failed to get the nomination and would run independ ent, they would vote for me anyhow and would see that tne Republicans didn't run anybody against me, at all. If I am nominated my section of the county will go Democratic by a big ma jority. The Alliance will support me to a man and the merchants will sup port me, too, because one of Bro. James' boys is clerking in a store in Raleigh. ' Another thing; I need the office. Times are hard and I've got three grown daughters to be educated, and we're had so many short crops that I am get ting behind and don't see how I can do as much for my children as I would like unless I can get an office. A county office would just suit me. One of my boys is just home from school and he could be my clerk and we could run the thing as smooth as you please. . Now, Mr, Editor, in conclusion, let me say, I am a patriot. I may not be a pink and White angel, but I am at least a patriot. I've suffered for the party. Why, I had my woods burnt once just because I was a Ku-klux. And I spent my time and money for the party. At the last election I gave away a whole ' load of watermelons and a gallon of cider to help influence votes. When ever the Democratic banner has been in danger of trailing in the dust, I have always been seen lifting up my voice in its behalf. I'm fifty-six years old, and never split a ticket, and never voted for but one Republican, and he was Horace Greely, und the party owes me some thing. I think I am justly entitled to this nomination, and my folks think &o too and the party wont be suc cessful if I'm not nominated. I tell yon if they leave me out after all I've done, I'll just quit and won't have a thing to do with politics as long 'as I live so there. I think I ought to be nominated because the party owes me something, and because it will add strength to the iicket; but J don't want the place bad enough to get some of my friends and kinsfolks to write a communication to the paper for me every week, like some folks are doing, and I said to my wife last night, says I, "Moriah if these cheeky candidates keep on blowing their own horns, I shall get so disgusted that I'll be bound to come out in a card in the Chronicle, and resign in favor of the one that seems to be blowing his horn the loudest," and my wife dropped her knitting and turned round and said, just as solemn as a tombstone, "Jere miah I jest wish you would."

Story, the American? sculptor and poet, writes from Rome: "All Ihave to say is that in my opinion the taxvof 80 per cent, on foreign works of art is disgraceful in theory, unworthy of auy great country, disastrous to art and beneficial to none." Prof. J . . P. Cook, the . scholarly and genial editor of -that wide-awake and ably edited paper, the Concord Stand ard, will early be an exoduster from the state of "single -cussedness" to the realms of matrimonial bliss. Stanley Observer. 31. NUB ICE CELLAR. eason of Sacrifices IN ALL CLASSES OP DR Y GOODS. , Dr. R. J. Gatling, of Hartford, Conn., (a native of North Carolina, and of Gates county, we believe) desires a con tradiction of the report recently sent from Cincinnati to the effect that A. T. Perrine was the inventor of the Gatlicg gun. Dr. Gatlicg himself invented the gun. Mr. Chauncey M. Depew, who is visit ing Ghieago, was called upon by 150 chil dren, who are to produce "Cinderella,", and each child presented him with a boquet. In acknowleding the compli ment Mr. Depew said : "Children, I had rather receive these flowers from you than the plaudits and votes ' of all the delegates who will assemble in 1892 to nominate a presidential candidate." Mr. Depew was the orator at the annnal meeting of the Chicago Press Club. LATE NEWS NOTES.

MARTIN STREET. 00 s HOESl HOES! SHOES! HOES 1 AN OBSTACLE I TO FEDERAL INTERFERENCE. The eleoiion in Oregon is said to be an obstacle to tho passage of the Feder al Ebotion-law. Oregon has already eleoted) Representative to the fifty eeond Congress under existing laws. It now, Federal election machinery is to be provided, thero seems to be no room tor: argument, against jthe proposition thattbetper&tioKof th same must be postponed fof iwoyears, or that the State ot Oregon be requested t6hold an other election. ' It is argned that a new lection poold not be ordered in Oregon. Commenting on this, the Baltimore San ays:. , '. y ' I The dilemma seems, to be an unpleas ant oner for the. political , extremists who Eropose to' subject the South to a federal tw designed to manufacture .republican votes, and it ' looks 'as, though Oregon' might serve the pnrpose.pf a buffer ' to ward off from the Southern people the evils of federal interference. In Illinois the Democrats arcmakiDg the Federal Election law the issue and the old-time followers of Docolas- are falliog into line . against the proposed invasion of States' rights. Hon. John M. Pilmkb, whom the Democrats of Illinois have nominated for the U. S. Setn'e,' has made more than one ringing speech against any federal interference in State elections, and has. issued a public chal lenge to the Republicans to name their candidate fa the Senate and to have a joint debate- throughout the State. It would-be a return to the old iDoug lux Lincoln .debate, and would be a good" State W'Which to. have the great issue tried by popular debate. It is not probable that the Republicans will dare to let thnir mn meet the old Democrat ic war hen on the stump. From Greensboro Patriot. A day or two ago a little ragged ur chin walked into the express office with a goat and said he wanted to send him off. On being asked where the goat was to be sent, he walked all around him a time or two, looked at the express agent. scratched his head, and said: " I don't know, goat don't know, 'spress company don't Know; goat done et up de tag." EARLY HITS HIMSELF FOR ONE. (From Sanford Express.) "True and brave old Gen. Early deliv ered a hard saying in his brief speech before the annual meeting in Richmond of the Association of the Army of North ern Virginia, the other day. He said : We would not honor Gen. Lee in un veiling the monument to his memory, but we would show that we were .worthy to follow him. .

Kunz, so widely known as the gem expert of Tiffany & Co., of New York, has contributed probably the most valuable work on the "Gems and Precious Stones of North America" which has yet appeared in print. It is a popular description of the occurrence, value, history and archaeology of all the material classed as gems or precious stones in this country. Dr. Kunz is the most prominent man of his. age in the- United States, and his professional rank is ample guaranteed of the excellence of his work. While the several species and varieties of gem-bearing stones are described sys tematically and in great detail, the text is singularly free from purely technical phrases; it is written in what is known We show specially for hot weather a choice assortment of Black Silk Gauzes, Grenadines and Hernannis, and light-weight China Silk for linings.

The work is profusely illustrated with artistic colored plates, delicately tinted, by Prang & Ca, the celebrated Boston art publishers. To North Carolinians this book has pe culiar interest, since its pages are teem ing with facts bearing on the mineral and gem resources of the State: it Is more than a compendium of the gem bearing stones of North Carolina, and I venture the assertion that had this State con tributed nothing to the volume, there would have been hardly 200, instead of ado pages, between it's covers.
