Hon. Ro(iEti Q Mills is a candidate for Speaker of the House. He is an able, earnest, aggressive and irascible Democrat, and is worthy of all honor and esteem. We had honnd that hp. would not be a candidate, but would de sire to remain a leader on the lloor. The Ciiu-kicle believes that Mit. By- num, of Indiana, is the man for Speaker. We take the liberty of making the fol lowing extract from a private letter from Mr. II. E. Fries, of Salem. He wisely says: 4,I wise you could 'bring about' one other measure, and that is, that the Speaker of the next House be chosen from amoDg the Northern Democrats, so that the Republicans cannot have cause in that respect to refer to the supremacy of the Solid South." x COLONEL L L. POLK, PRESIDENT OF THE FARMERS' ALLIANCE. Comments Upon the Situation in Kan sas, and Attributesthe Change of Sen timent to the Farmers' Financial Distress. (Atlantic Constitution.) A special dispatch to the Constitu tion last evening, fromlvansas City, Kan., summed up tho situation in that state as follows: "Late returns from Kansas indicate that the people's movement has swept the state. Willets has, in all probabili ty, been elected governor, over Robin son, Democrat, and Humphrey, Repub licans. There is every indication that a Republican majority of 82,000 has been overcome, although Willets' plural ity will be small. THE VARSITY" BOYS URATE. The CELE- and Hill Blazes With Bonfires Glows With Eloquence. (Special Cor. State Chronicle.) " Chapel HIll, N. C, Nov. 8. The students cf the University, and the citi zens of Chapel Hill celebrated the tidal wave of Democracy by a torchlight pro cession, bonhres, speaking, and a dis play of fireworks. The procession organized at 7:30 last night in front of tho South building, and proceeded "to take in the town." The only halt made was at the residence of Prof. Geo. T. Winston, who in re sponse to the spirited call of the students ana villagers made a snort speech. His line of thought was: This is no partisan victory, but the thoughtful action of the people. They are tired of sectionalism, monopoly, and high prices. They want no oligarchy on American soil. As long as we witness such a triumph as that of "The returns received to-night are to Tuesday last, there is hope for popular FOR VANCE AS HIS OWN SUCCESSOR. 1 ! enable these gen- they are rrtat things for Ral- V,,l-vtlnpnieut, it was ueeiilcd not v the announcement of the , ; after the excitement in- !:, :',;!,' :mip;iii,'n had died away. :, - tin.; and the organization of i .:av::iiv mark anew era in the r.i'.cirli.

Another friend writes: "So far you have not included Cas well county, as being for Vance. R L. Walker was elected to the House by 150 majority, being the first Democrat from Caswell since lbG5.
