As soon as the telegram was received that tho Atlanta Constitution had pro posed a grand convention to boycott all articles made in the north if the force bill should become a law, the Chronicle pronounced against it as an unwise and impracticable measure. We were sur prised that a paper of such breadth and such influence as tho Constitution should propose a scheme in such direct conflict with its past broad and glorious record. Tho suggestion of the boycott by the Constitution, and its endorsement by Govennor Gordon, has done more to securo tho adoption of the infamous forco bill than all tho arguments made by tho enomio3 of the south. If all the papers and public men of the south should endorse the position of the Con- stitution and Governor Gordon, there is no power that could prevent the passage of the force bill by the Senate. Under the circumstances, the talk of boycottiug the north is the extreme of nonsense, and tho talk of the Constitu tion that Tho people of the south need no time no preparation for their unan imous boycott of northern business if tho iorco bill bocomes a law," is all bosh and folly. The south is dependent upon the north for a great many things, and tho north has likewise a dependence up on the south. To talk of declaring com mercial and industrial war is a narrow ncss a lack of national breadth that is not worthy of the great paper which Henry Grady made tho ablest exponent of a reunited country. Forco cannot bo overcome with folly Our friends at the north need to have tho south act so wioly and so free from passion as to strengthen their hands in the fight thoy are making for us, and for right. We injure them and the cause whenever we lose our temper and our judgment, and propose violent and in tomporato moasurse to chock hostile leg islation. 6 Lot us boycott the boyoott. A grand convention of Southern men to protest against the passage of the Force bill, and to appeal to the wisdom and conservatism of the north for their co-oporationinthe fight against it, would do good. But talk about boycotting everything made in the north, is as silly a proposition as sensible men ever made or advocated. We are glad to see that oxcept the Constitution, no great south ern paper has advocated the boycott and with tho exception of Gov. Gordon' no prominent and able southern man has endorsed it. They were hasty and doubt less now seo their mistake. On the oth er hand Senator Vance, Roger Q. Mills and tho other great, wise and patriotic southern men, have declared against the proposed boycott, and depro cia od any such action as both fo.lish and unwise. A mass meeting of th ?f : fens of Atlanta declared against tho boycot and made an appeal to the busi nosa interests of the north and all patri- ?,n(T t0 US0 their inflnce against the Force bill The Richmond Chamber of Commerce did likewise. We hopo that the Chamber of Commerce in 0aroliIla WlU Every few days wg hear some cno talking earnestly against parties on tho ground that they do not concern them selves with "living issues," and that ii; is necessary for a man to bo indepen dent of party to advocate "living is sues." The Chronicle has no patience with such talk. There is no foundation for it in fact. The truth is that the oniy opportunity that is open to the a citizen to lend the weight of his influ ence to advance "living issues" is to ally himself with one of the great parties. The line of battle has been drawn up and two parties confront each other. All other fighting this year is mere bushwhacking and skirmishing, and will amount to nothing, no matter how hon ost the bushwhacker and skirmishers aro. If the Democratic leaders (and they are in the main, as honest and as faithful and as able as any men who ever repre sented a constituency) do not fight for "living issues," then what does their op position to the Force bill mean ? That is a vital issue one that invades the homes and firesides of every citizen of the South, and one that threatens Home Rule. As one man, the Democratic party stands united against it, and will stand there to the death. Above every other question at this crisis, the Forco bill is the "living issue." The Democrats are consistently fight ing; against the protective tariff andthe enormous piling up of tariff taxation which the McKinley bil3 imposes upon an already over-burdened people, dis criminating, as it does, against the agricultural classes. Is not this a "living issue?" The life-blood of tho people is being sapped by tho ex cessive tariff taxation, and if any issue can be a "living" one, it's this one. The Democratic party is struggling and has ever struggled against extravagant ex penditures and appropriations. Is it not a "living issue" to fight against the Republicans advocate in order to con tinue the protective tariff? The people pay for all these things for which money is appropriated, and it is their "living" that is steadily taken from them for tho extravagant appropriations. The majority of the Democracy has consistently fought for the remonetiza- tion of silver and its free coinage. In 1878 they passed a bill in the House for free coinage which the Republican Sen ate defeated, and in this Congress they stood almost solidly for it. Is not that "living issue?" There must bo more money; the stringency in the money market relieved. Is not that a "living issue?" 'i-t. . auu iiuuNicLE nopes that all tho people will think about these things. The Democratic party doubtless makes mistakes. If so let us right them. But lot us not impair its usefulness by say ing that it does not deal with "living issues." It does, and what it advocates' if adopted, would make our peoplo mora prosperous. L&t all of us continue to fight for tho above "living issued and all other wise "living issues" which will benefit the people, not forgetting in North Carolina that without unity we cau neither get these or anv other re forms. Dr. Kelly is a very fickle man, and 'i.mot be depended npon. About two I'Qxrs ago, when there was a heated dis-cu-siio)'. in KasLvilks Tcnn., bceau-e a Jfethodii. prt'Kcher deuounoed a famous ac-ii'i-x's from tho pulpit, Dit. Kelly rush ed into print to criticize the preacher and brought down upon himself the criticism c.f his church. He then "re canted," and hecamo one of the most violent opponents of "worldly amuse ment?." Some weeks ago he was nomi nated for Governor of Tennessee on the Prohibition ticket. Bishop Keener very properly informed him that he could not be a Methodist pastor and a candidate for office. It was then announced that he had decided not to run for Governor. Now it is stated that he has again changed his mind and will preach his farewell sermon, and accept the nomina tion. His Presiding Elder announced from his pulpit Sunday morning that Dr. Kelly could not be a pastor and a candidate. The Bishop and Pre siding Elder have acted wisely, and it is to be regretted that Dit Kelly able as he is known to be preferred politics to preaching. The Bishop gave him a chance to stick to his last, and to continue preaching the gospel. He pre ferred politics, and then the good Bishop, imitating Ko Ko, "Knashed his teeth And from his sheath He drew his snicker-enee," and Pastor Kelly is pastor no more. The Chronicle is not of that number who believe that preachers ought to wrap themselves in their saeradotal robes and have nothing to do with great public questions. On the contrary, we believe that they ought to be deeply concerned upon great public questions, andjuse their influence to secure reforms. But we have observed that when a preacher becomes a politician, his work as a preacher is perfunctory and is fruit less. "This one thing I do" is the best motto for a minister of the gospel. BOYCOTT THE BOYCOTT. The Force bill was introduced for tho sole purpose of raising sectional issues and bad feeling, so that through such bad feeling the Republicans could continue in control of the government. The ac tion of the Atlanta Constitution is ex actly what Hoar, Reed & Co. desire. It kindles sectional animosity anew, and serves a3 an argument to south-haters why the Force bill ought to prevail. We are sorry that the Constituton fell into tho trap set for it by the south-haters, and unwittingly gave them an argument which they will use with terrible effect. The Chronicle says : Let us boycott the boycott. LIVELY SELMAi Something Always I)oiog--Crops Pic iiics--Persoujil and Social, Special Cor. of State Chonicle Selma, N. C, July 23. Selma is about the liveliest and jolliest town in the State according to size and popula tion and it even surpasses some of the larger towns. The young people here have just the best time on record. There is always something going on to get fan out of -picnics, parties, entertainments, &c. There was a pic nick at Holt's pond last Friday which was one of the most ecjorable occasion we ever attended. Helma and Smithfield will hold a joint pic nic at Creech's pond next Tuesday. Now for another big time. The crops here are fine. All are sat isfied ; they could hope for no better. Politics aro all the "go." The poli tician's tribunal convenes every day in front of a certain store in town and the candidates are discussed one by one. Sago opinions are passed on every sub ject connected with politics. Miss Amanda Harris, of Raleigh; Miss Emma Hall and Miss Lela Cobb, of Goldsboro; Miss Lula Brooks, of Shelby, and Miss Lizzie Avery, of this county, are visiting here. Mrs. Rev. J K.
