I hat it will be a bitter fight there is uo doubt. The same tactics that were used in 1888 will be used again, only the other side will use theiu. This is a clear intimation that Mr. Cleveland's friends will knife Hill if he runs for Governor next year. If I am nflV illdora nf what. Will hntinnn thot xr,n i;!'

That there are enough of such men to make a big ma jority in 1891 almost impossible Hi'.l well knows, and if there is any fear in the situation it is not on the Cleveland . :;i; SITUATION, fide. Add to the logic of these facts the mag Lit ude of the otlice at the Governor's dis posal and it is no wonder he pauses be fore casting it aside. The chance of be coming a member of the United States Senate is not to be despised; it is not ouvred to a man twice. It means a high . i , r the fittoim ? honorable position for six years at a i in s;crh 0U th Buiarj, uuu auurus a Aveii rquippeu reputation for statesmanship and to achieve even more than national dis tinction. In spite of his indisposition to take the office the Governor is not lost to its many attractions, particularly when by refusing it ho may take a step that will lead to oblivion instead of fame. Thu demeanor of the Cleveland men of the State makes Hill study over the problem much more than he otherwise would. They are all absolutely certain that nothing can stop Mr. Cleveland's nominalion in 1892 On this point they :r tun-?, or by one are all absolutely certain that nothing can stop Mr. Cleveland s nomination in 1892. Oa this point they are so entnu siastic u, calmly confident is a better phrase that they puzzle Hill.

C, Nov. 24, 1690.-It can hardly be doubted that the Leg islature will appropriate a sufficient sum of money to insure a proper representa tion of the State at the great Columbian Fair in 1892. There is much that the State can and should impress upon the other States and territories and foreign countries in regard to her history, peo ple, climate and products There is no lack of material for such a presentation, and further, there is no lijk of experi ence in making it. Although the State laade but a lean show in 1876, at the Centennial, she fully redeemed herself in this way by the wonderful and vigorous exhibitions at Boston, Atlauta, Raleigh and New Orlea':s. Indeed she is a veteran full of honors, and with comparatively small funds can mike an illustration of all her powers that m scope, varietv and bounty section of the tariff bill and says: "1 am unable af present to make even an approximate estimate of the expenses necessary to carry into enect this provi sion of tne law.

They state that there is no necessity for them to make any move to strength en Mr. Cleveland iu the State. They will not interfere in the organization of the Assembly, uor make any dels or bargains of any kmd. Cleveland is safj, he will win in spite of New York. There is just one tbiug, however, that will bo uone. If any man runs for Governor in 1891 to gt a bjoni for the Presidency in 1892 the boom will have several holes punched iu it. Now it is probable that the G iveruor does not believe that Mr. Cleveland's friends are willing to let New York State take care of itself in 1892 in spite of their boasts. His political knowledge, however, tells him they are strong enough and enthusiastic enough to stab him ia the back in 1891 if he runs for Governor, and that would spoil his p'an ble sum of money enable this bureau to ll,aneP qftios w?nie a working mem- asiwrain nnon siv.r. this h.-urv cn'l "-,r oa noir, ,'nui vos a : audi -late hi paid, and the rate of bounty to whi.h claimants tor same may be eutiried.

It is deemed practical t have sam ples sent to this office for analysis, and rely upon the tests made here as to the eutire production.

The pension fund is derived from the following section of the new pension law: That a tax of three cent on every one hundred dollars value of real and per sonal property of this State, and moneys, credits, investments in bonds, joint, stock companies or otherwise, and also a tax of nine cents on each taxable poll or male between the ages of twenty-one and fifty years, except the poor aud in firm whom the county commissioners multitude will surpass those c i any of ner sisters. The work of preparation should begin almost at once. Tho State should be officially present in all h.r beauty and strength aud the Legislature will not be slow in providing funds ade quate for economical and handsome maintenance of her position. Of course this sum will be largely augmented by private corporations and interests and the display can be made magnificent but the State should have a distinctive standard under which everything in North Carolina should be gathered.
