PENSION The New York Herald continues its exposures of the cost of the dependent pension bill, and, incidentally, of its prospective future increase. Commis sioner Raum has reported officially to the Secretary of the Treasury that the deficiency for the current fiscal year will be forty millions of dollars. If this be added to the amount appropriated by Congress, which was one hundred and oue million dollars, the total charges for the year would be one hundred and forty-one million dollars. But later in formation makes it certain that the aggregate expenditures for the year will be one hundred and fiftv million dollars m The appropriations for the current uscai year oi one Hundred ana one million dollars are misleading, as the pension expenditures for the year ended Jur.e SO, 1890, were one hundred and nine million dollars. But assuming Commissioner Racm's estimate of a deficiency of forty million dollars to be correct as far a3 it goes, it is said that if tho pension bureau works up to its full limit the deficiency will be correspondingly increased, and the lowest estimates, outside of the bureau, put the aggregate expenditures for the year, as we have already stated, at one hundred and fifty millions. Con gressman Sayres, of Texas, who has been investigating the matter, has made the startling discovery that to keep down the deficiency to the official esti mates, the pension bureau is withhold ing certificates fur claims settled and allowed under previous laws. The as sumption is that "it is the settled policy of the pension bureau to endeavor to shift upon the next Democratic House the onus of the enormous deficiencies that are sure to come, and which ought to be borne by this Congress." There are at this time one million of claims before the pension bureau,the greater part of which hare not been acted upon, and it is computed that the pension roll under the different extensions of the law is growing at the rate of from twenty-five to thirty million dollars a year. The Herald writer estimates that with the half a million of previous pension claims unadjusted, and new claims filed or coming forward for filing under the old law, the actual amount of the pension roll will ultimately reach one hundred and sefenty million dollars annually, without counting in the dependent pen sion bill. In summing up he says: ""ThA-Pet result is that the finance min ister oftn, administration which is to come into tijBce in 1893, will have to provide two hundred and fifty million dollars a year forpeQ8ions." The World's Fair has been hindered by too mcch talk. Many of tL? Com niissiocers wers men of eloquence and ! they had to "fire it oil" before they j cculd get down to work. But all the delays are, happily, past, j Now that tLe Lady Managers have met j in Chicago and organized, there will be I no more talk, but real, earnest and ! united work. Mrs. Putteb Palmer was elected President of the Lady Managers. The lady readers of the Chronicle will te interested in the following ex tract of an account of flbe meeting which we clip from the Chicago Times: The ladies began to arrive about 10 o'clock. They were received by Secretary Dickinson of the national commission, and their commissions, credentials and badges were given them. For about an hour an infoimal reunion was held, dur ing which the fair visitors embraced the opportunity of becoming acquainted with each .other. The burning question of the presidency of the board was the prominent topic of conversation and in terest, and not a little quiet caucu-ing was indulged in about it. There were many quite notable women in the room. Mrs. Russell Harrison was said by many by the blonde beauty of the con vention. Mrs. Lynca of West Virginia was also greatly admired. A hundred eyes were turned gallery ward to catch a glimpse of the most beautiful lady ia the hall. She is Miss Kathryn Keough of North Carolina, a daughter of the commisioner from that State. She is not a lady manager, however, and is semply a Aisitor to the city. Mrs. Chas. Price of North Carolina was also promi nent. Talking about the presidency of the board, Mrs. Price said ail the ladies she had met seemed enthusiastic about Mrs. Potter Palmer and she hope! she would l.-e elected unanimously.

The Sex r; t -ikes no stock in the rumor that the Alliance members of the Legislature will support Polk for Sena tor Vance. In the first place, we do not believe Col. Polk i3 a candidate in any sense. We do not believe he would allow his name to be pressed, under the circumstances. In the second place, the Legislators from all of the counties,, ex cept two or three, are pledged to ance acd we are certain that the average North Carolina Legislator i3 too honora ble a man to repudiate his promises. There is nothing in it. FOIl SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE. When the General Assembly of North Carolina meeta there will be no lack of competent men wield the gavel and lead the forces the floor. Very few of the old members have been returned and the great &nlk of the members are new to publictfe. They are, mainly, men who have demoted most of their lives to the pursuits of -agriculture and have never before held public position. They are men of integrity and will seek to legislate for the good ifjf the whole peo ple. For Speaker quite a number of names have been mentioned.- Those whose friends have written urging their nomi nation are: Tiios. H. Sutton, of (Cumberland; K. A. DoroiiTo rf Alleghany; Harry Skinner, of Pitt: A. D. Jones, of We; It B. Peebles, of Northampton; Col. W. M. Pickett, of Anson; W. T. Adams, of Granville; Db. W. A Woollen, of Randolph; and there are ooubtless others who will be in th race before the Legislature con venes. The Chronicle congratulates the mem bers of the General Assembly that they have such goevd material to select from to fill the most? important position in the legislative department of the State. i . The Minnesota Alliance has issued a call for a State Convention at which it is proposed ito get ready for the cam paign of 189;2. The indications point to the organization of an Alliance party in 1892 and tte nomination of candidates for President and Vice President. Such a step woti Id be fatal to the alms of the Alliance, t articularly in the South. -- The Rep iblicans are now plotting to admit Utafi &a a state in December, and to make ift Republican by disfranchis ing every ynember of the Mormon church. This wot'-d give them two more U. S. Senators.) I. HOME-SPUN YARNS. (Wilmington Messenger.) A negro man has invented a word which will ptir well with "funeralize." "Sam," asked a gentleman, "are these fish sound ?" "Puffeckly, boss, puffeckly; you just nostralize 'em !'' PERSONAL AND SOCIAL. Mr. B. P. Shillaber, the humorist and poet, who is better known to the world as "Mrs. Partington," is dying at his home in Chelsea. Mr. W. A. Hemphill, business man ager of the Atlanta Constitution, will be the new Mayor of Atlanta. He was the Gordon man on the Constitution. Mr. M Bradshaw, of Asheboro. Ran dolph county, will b3 a candidate for re election to position of Engrossing Clerk of the Senate. He held that position two years ago and filled it faithfully and satisfactorily. A banquet in honor of the return of Capt. E. J. Hale, late U. S. Consul at Manchester, England, was given in Fay etteville Friday night at Hotel La Fay ette. Dr. W. O. McDuffie presided, and it was an elegant and pleasant social affair. Betty Benton, Bradford, Pa , twenty five years old, does not believe marriage is a failure. Within ten years she has been married six times. Four of her husbands died, she was divorced from one, and has lately taken in the sixth, who must either be a very desperate or a very brave man. Col. Harry Skinner has been spoken of for the next Speaker of the lower House. He i3 a gentlemau of great at tainments; a good parliamentarian and a thorough-bred Democrat, He will no doubt receive the united support of fhe counties of this Senatorial District, to say nothing of his strength on his own side of the sound. E. City Falcon. The Wi'.nington Messenger says that the celebrated Dr. Koch is distantly re lated to the Messrs. Wm. and J. A. Boa itz, of Wilmington, whose father and the father of Dr. Koch, and also the father of the Rev. F. W. E Peschau,of that city, all filled important and honorable positions together in the tamous and rich silver and copper mines oe the Harz Mountains, in The latest news from Jones, vho Vanderbllt condition flanover. Rev. J. Frank has been ill some time at University, represents his as utterly hopeless. His -other Thad wrote on the 20th that the Dr. said that the friends might pre pare themselves for the worst, and ad vices from R2V. N. H. D. Wilson, of the same date, corroborate the facts. Greensboro Workman. Mr. Wm. T. Crawford. Congressman- elect from the Ninth District, is now at Chapel Hill reviewing his law course. He teila the Asheville Citizen that he will remain there until February 1st, when he will apply for his license. Then he will go to Washington and re main until Congress adjourns that he may observe the workings of the body. Keep your eyes on Crawford. He will be heard from in the nation's capital. IS IT "ON TO RALEIGH?" The Chronicle Wants to See This Road Completed to Raleigh. The Richmond Dispatch says the Atlantic Coast Line has, by purchase from the Richmond & Danville Compa ny, acquired sole ownership of the Nor folk & Carolina Railroad, a line about one hundred miles in length, running from Norfolk, Va , to Tarboro, N. C. The road was built jointly by the Coast Line and Richmond & Danville Companies. All these reductions rep resent full lines of all shades, new and stylish, not odds and ends of stock, and the low prices are made in order to give us room for our large display of Holi day Goods, arriving and to arrive. Our Mr. Dobbin is now in New York to secure the very laatest novelties in holiday goods, supplement ing those already bought. W. H. & R. S. TUCKER 4 CO., Raleigh, N. C. Woollcott&Son, !i E.
