The Senate this morning resumed considera tion of the Senate bill to reduce the amount of I'nited (States bonds, to be required bf National banks and to re toro to the cha nnels of tiade the exces sive accumulations of lawful money in the treasury . Without action the bill was laid aside, and the Senate required consideration of the Hou.-e b II to ddiiie ik1 regulate the jurisdiction of tl.o courts of tho United State and of the substitute theretur, reported .by Mr. Evarts from the judi ciary committee. Mr. Dolph (. IT. red another amendment constituting the States of Oregon, Wash ington, Montai.a and Idaho the tenth judicial district, and providing for the apn intmeot of two circuit judges.

Ho thought that under the plan suggested by him tho entire mass of arreais of busiuess could bo disposed of within two years, and that from that time on the business could be kept up. Finally tho vote was taken on Mr. Dolph'a amendment, but as it disclosed .the absenco of a quorum tho roll was called, and only forty senators answered.

Ham was nominated for Is He The Candidate ot Jno. William son or. TonnoffsM. Geo. L. Tonnoffski, who sometime ago announced himself as a candidate for Congress in this district, ha3 issued a circular stating that he will withdraw and support Prof. Mclver, John Will iamson's candidate. He says that he withdraws because the Alliance and Knights of Labor have agreed to support no man who will not enact their meas ures. Tonnoffski says that Prof. Mc lver says tbat.if elected, he will endeavor to carry out these demands, and there fore Mr. T. says he feels under obliga tions to support him more especially tho House and declined. The following since "Mr. Buun has absolutely refused resolutions were adopted: The Democracy of Wayne county in convention assembled, recognizing the eminent service and fidelity of Senator Z B. Vance, Kesolve, That the Senators and Rep resentatives from this county be and to carry out the wishes of the farmers and laboring men of this district." He calls upon all farmers and laborers to unite with him in electing Mclver. Sent out with Tonnoffski's circular is a long address from Prof. Mclver, an nouncing his candidacy. It is almost are hereby instructed to vote for him for exactly in the words of Prof. Mclver's U. S. Senator. - The Wayne Democracy, true to its record, has done gloriously. Mr. Ay cock served in tho last Senate and was tho author of the resolution providing for tho Investigating Committee, of which he is a member, which has secured the payment of tax by railroads which have heretofore escaped taxation.

He declares his devotion to the larmers says he is a member of the Farmers' Al liance, etc., etc. These two cards will go out together to the voters of the 4th District who will find them very valu able as lamp-lighters. Poor old Prof. Mclver. When Ton noffski commends him and withdraws in his favor, and John Williamson se en e his nomination and makes him the county is thus endorsing the important candidate of the negroes, he will need to work ho has set in motion. The nominees for the House are suc cessful and popular farmers. Mr. Bryan was for years a prominent member of the Goldsboro bar, but five years ago, because his health demanded out door exercise, he moved to his farm and is one of the best farmers in Eastern North Carolina, as well as one of the truest, best informed and most modest and worthy of upright conservative gentle men. Mr. Ham is a man of fine sense and patriotism and will be a true repre sentative of his people. Both are mem bers of the Alliance. Mr. Matthew J, Ham, whose service in the last House deserved endorsement, was re-nominated, but declined. We had hoped he would return. His place wiil be filled by his kinsman in Hiram J. Ham. The county ticket is strong. The Chronicle is particularly gratified at the renomination of W. T. Dortch as Tax Collector. He has made a popular and efficient officer. pray to be delivered from his friends. N. B. - John Williamson's (col.) card is not sent out with that of Turn off sky. Inasmuch as he is the god-father of Prof. Mclver's candidacy, he does not think it necessary to send out a card Prof. Mclver is as much John William son's candidacy as if he bore a tag on wnicn was printed " I am John's Candidate ! " Since Turn off sky's card is out an addition might be made to the card, Mine too." G. L. Turn off sky. John Williamson (col ) I Turn off sky! and Prof. Mclver! When shall these three meet again?

A Distinguished North Carolina Edu cator W rites of his Visit to The Baltimore Schools. Special Cor. State Clironicle.l Baltimore, Md., Sep. 15th, 1800. Coming to this generous Southern city for a brief annual vacation, of course it is my greatest delight to visit its insti tutiops of learning. They are many, tasteful and elegant. With strong financial backing, richly equipped with professors, presenting in every qase a suitable and satisfactory curriculum, they appeal to the observer in a vivid language all their own. A morning spent in the Mannual Training School is an experience not soon to be forgot ton. Literature and steam engiues, history, English composition, chemistry, geology and stop cylinders, physical geography and book-keeping constitute a jumble and a tangle very much to the confusion of the intellect. And yet if the clear minded visitor commences right and goei straight, a very beautiful system may be evolved from all this. Here is very capacious arrange ment of buildings, one of them perfectly new, five stories high, costing nearly thirty thousand dollars, the ground sto ry being devoted to a swimming pxl and play ground, a magnificent assem bly room being overhead, while all the other space is appropriated to the liter ary work of the institution. The old building, which we visited before, is taken up with workshops, departments for wood work aud metal, engine and furnace rooms; and all the varied facili ties of a many sided industry. The ma chinery is driven by an exquisite steam engine, built by one of the senior clas ses, and to a mechanical soul must b3 a joy forever. It is refreshing to stand in a place of vantage and see four hundred boys change recitation rooms, with heads up ana a precision or military step ana manner. One hour is given to drawing, one hour and a half to mechanical study, and the remainder of the time to liter ary application. A well-developed, bright-eyed boy of seventeen stood by the furnace, another by the engine, and each kept his place for three days, mak ing his daily report in writing to the principal. They were the youngest en gineer ana nreman l ever saw, but, like the boy who "stood on the burning deck, they seemed to know their busi ness. I saw a class of youngsters gathered around a professor, who was lecturing on one of the tools of carpen try. It was defective in its making, and its defects were being pointed out. Another curious apartment was full of anvils, and more brilliant little black smiths were ringing the hammers ou them than you would see in a month's travel. Another room seemed to be de voted to minature tinners, and the little fellows were making tin cups, coffee pots and every other vessel dedicated to this metal. Other classes were working upon house architecture, in pattern making, in moulding, in vise work, in soldering and brazing, in wood turning, wood carving, and in almost everything else known to mechanical discovery. And it was not heedless, superficial work either, but carefully studied and skilfully prepared as if the heart of both pupils and teachers were in it. But the most wonderful problem to me in all this wonderful institution, was how such an advanced and comprehen sive course of study could be made to go hand in hand with such a complica ted manual training. And yet there it was going with the smoothness and reg ularity of clock work. At a given sig nal the forges, lathes, sledges and gear wheels were magically forsaken, every face and pair of hands were cleansed in The Alliancemen In Pitt are For Vance.

Our interests being entirely agricul tural, and our people being mostly strong Alliancemen, we displayed our patriot ism by "unjustifiedly1' endorsing Vance for United States Senator to succeed himself.

Tho accident occurred near Cary in tho vicinity of Carpenter's lionia. The engineer states that while thetrrin was running at schedule speed, lie saw a man walk right up on the track, and apparently unconscious of the ap proach of the train. His eyes wtre cast .downward as though he were iu deep thought. It was impossible to stop the train and Carpeuter was almost instantly killed. He is said to have been deaf, and his not being able to hear may ac--count for his walking almost into tho rushing engine.

At the Island of Blister, however, there was serious trouble. The natives hauled down the French lias and the marines fired upon them. Upwards of one hundred natives were killed and a number of marines injured. The island was finally occupied by the French, the natives being beaten off. An Insurance Company in a Tangle.

The reports of correspondents of the Weekly Weather Crop Bulletin issued by the North Carolina Experiment Station and State Weather Service, co-operating with the United States Signal Service, show that the week ending Saturday, September 20th, 1890, has been unfav orable for crops and farm work of al: kinds. The first four days of the week continued to be very damp with frequent rains, and tho injury done to cotton is considerable. Excessive warmth and moisture has caused cotton to rot or sprout in the bolls, while that which had already opened has been stained and otherwise considerably damaged. The latter part of the week, Wednesday to Saturday, has been cooler and clear, and altogether more favorable, permitting farmers to resume picking where it had been interrupted. In many places tobacco is nearly all housed. Iu the western portion of the State a light frost in low places occurred on-the 18th. At Fork Church, Davie county, a heavy rain and hail storm on the ICth injured crops to some extent. : OBITUARY. Mr. A. M. Woodallhas become one of the editors of the Smithfield Herald.

News and Observer please copy. Beginning November 1st, Durham will have free mail delivery. Durham is a I city sure enough I running water, and the recitation rooms were filled to overflowing with juvenile blacksmiths and carpenters. Then came the higher inspiration of brain work. And what braiu work it was! The very lowest form grappled with quadratic equations in algebra, and sailed into geometry like it was a holiday amuse ment. Then came English composition, history, physics and physiology, with sundry primary studies to make up good measure. The second year, after finish ing geometry, took up tiigenometry and mensuration, studied English literature and rhetoric, went deeper into history and phvsics, and required to hear lectures and take intelligent and logically arranged notes on steam engineering. The third year was required to mister both plain aud spherical trigenometry, to produce original compositions, to study chemistry, geology and civil gov ernment, and to hnish off with book keeping as a utility by no means to be dispised. Now one would think, that a boy would never get down to a cold chisel again from such a curriculum as this. And yet they invariably do it. The signal to change professors breaks the spell, and the pupil, like an acrobat from the spring-board to the sawdust, instantly transfers his intellect to his fingers. The Manual Training School is de servedly one of the favorite institutions of this city. There has been some little feeling created by the assignment of the former accomplished principal, .Lieu tenant Ford, to other duty. And if we may be permitted to say so, just at this point is the most threatening peril in the path of this noble educational en dowment. Its principal should be a per petuity, without the possibility of a change. The navy should have nothing to do with it. Surely all the engineer ing genius of the country does not be long to Secretary Tracy. A school as vital to the industrial interests of the people as this, should not be left de pendent upon any uncertain power whatever. And we offer this suggestion without reference to the present energetic prin cipal, Lieutenant John W. Smith, who seems to possess the earnestnt ss and the ability to deserve success. He and the first assistant, Prof. Ebaugh, will add daily to the efficiency and popularity of this honored institution.
