Mr. Gordon objected in forcib'e lan guage to forcing the consideration of this partisan measure while bankruptcy and ruin are going on in the country. Mr. Hoar, replying, said ho thouahr. Mr. brorman's ppeeca presented good. strong reasons for his proposition Mr. Gray then resumed his opposition to the bill, which he said should be taken out and branded by the common haug- man as an insult to the free people of a free country. Mr. Berry obtained the floor when Mr. Gray finL-hed, and the Senate, after a short executive session, adjourned. House. Washington, Dec. 8. In the House to-day the resolution to discipline Door keeper Minot was tabled. The Atkinson bill relating to railroad rights in tho district of Columbia was passed, also several other bills relating to the district. The bill to give a rebate on manufactured tobacco in store Jan uary 1st, was reported from the ways and means committee by Mr McKmley, and passed without opposition. The Speaker laid before tho house a letter from the secretary of the treasury transmitting a communicafion from tho commissioner of pensions, submitting a deficiency in the appropriation for the payment of pensions for the current fis cal year of $34,000,000. The House then, at 5 p. m. adjourntd.

HOMICIDE IN MECKLENBURG. Will be Dcmocratc Because the Re publicans filected Cannot (Jive Bond Craven county will have Democratic county officers for the next two jeurs. This is because the men elected by Re publicans coulun t give their official bonds. Tho New Berne Journal says "Democrats, keep your carats off the bonds of Republicans," was the war cry after the election, and the rcsuit was the Republicans failed to present satisfact ory bonds and Democrats have been ap pointed to fill the vacant positions." The county commissioners were in ses sion lat week, and when the bonds of the Republican officers elect were called for, thoso would-be functionaries did not, offer such securities as the comm s sioners deemed neecssar?. Therefore other appointments were made by thu board, and the appointees were the Democratic nominees of the recent cam paign. As the matter steads now Mr. W. B. Lane, a good Democrat, is sheriff, instead of R. P. Williams, who was elected to that office by the Radicals. Robt. G. Moselev, who was elected treasurer by the Radicals, did not offer any bond at all, and Mr. Thos. Daniels, who was the Democratic candidate, holds that office. E. W. Carpenter, who was the Radical cleik of the Superior court elect, didn't com to time, and Mr. Wm. M. Watson will be that officer for Craven county if Judge Phillips grants the request of the Democratic Executive committee. George Green, Jr., w s elected by the Radicals as the register of deeds. The bond he offered was not considered good, and Mr. James W. Biddle was ap pointed to that office. FOR SP2KER OF THE HOUSE. (Special Cor. State Chronicle.) The friends of tho several candidates are right in urging that the Speaker ought to be a man of ability, experience and parliamentary practice. These are seme of the reasons which actuate his many friends to unito upon Mr. A D. Jones. His training at Chapel Hill, long the leader of the Dialetic Society, and at the University of Virginia make him facile trinceps in the laws govern ing deliberative assemblies. His long and careful attention to the proceedings of our Stare Legislature, having bem an eye witness tncreof for ten year-, makes him thoroughly familiar with the forms and precedents which ought to govern that body. A student of politics, of polit ical economy and of the special interests ana needs of our btatQ and in the posses sion of mental and physical vigor Mr. Jones is one of the best equipped men in oiaie lor mis or any otner omce in the gift of the people's representatives. Of course any intelligent member of the House could fill the speaker's chair creditably. Men of common sense with out any parliamentary experience have done this. A erreat deal of the talk about the experience reauisito to fill this im portant office is wind. Yet, if experience IS to be made the test, thrn Mr. .TnnA is pre-eminently the man for the placo. Able, versatile and a good judge of men, well known in the State and with a most extensive acquaintance there is no man in tha next General Assembly who has such knowledge of the personnel of that body. But above a'l, Mr. Jones is a man of conspicuous political ability, who take3 more interest in public af fairs than any other gentleman within my knowledge. He has repeat edly led the forlorn hrpe in Wake until at last permanent victory has crowned his efforts. Western North Carolina and Piedmont North Carolina have had the Speaker now for many years. Central North Carolina has not had one for many years. But we offer him, not as coming from any section, but as a man whom ail sections will delight to honor. He is free from any entangling alliance and therefore strong with the people. Bold yet conservative, progressive yet watchful of every legiti mate interest, he is at this time peculiar ly the man for the placo. Alt signs at this time point to him as the next Speaker, and after a most careful survey of the field, I can confidently prophesy his ejection. N. V . H. & R. S.
