Plausible Reasons Showing President Cleveland's Preference for the Geor gia Senator. From the Washington Critic. New light has been thrown upoD tie reconstruction of the Cabinet by certain developments of the past few days, and these developments lead in a direction not heretofore mentioned in the public prints. The fact that Sen at or Colquitt, of Georgia, has appear ed upon the scene, is not suggestive in its elf, but taken with fact that he was yesterday closeted with Secretary La mar for several hours after the meeting of the Cabinet, has revived the rumor that he will figure jn the new Cabinet deal. There are various straws which point to Colquitt as Secretary Lamar's successor. It it well known that Pres ident Cleveland, when in Georgia, was very much .impressed witli Gov ernor Gordon, and has, since his re turn, to intimate friends, expressed a desire that in some way Governor Gordon might be sent to the Senate where his ready speech, conservative sentiments and high character would be of great value to the administra tion. It is asserted that Mr. Vilas, since he nas been looking the held over, has about concluded that he 'loes not desire to change his position. The Post Office Department to him ha3 been a source of constant study, uid he has devoted two and one-half vears oi hard work to mastering its details. To accept the portfolio ot the Interior Department, it is pointed out 13' his friends, would be for him to tie ! himself down to his desk and eo I through the same constant, ceaseless i work iti acquiring the details of his now position that he has already per- lormed in the Post ofhee Department AN OPEN LETTER Democratic To Several Distinguished Leaders. Correspondence Ktw York Herald. To Mestrs. Henry Watterson, John G. Carlisle and Roger Q. Mills : Gentlemen It is understood that you and those Democratic members of Congress who act with you propose to offer and try to pass at the coming sesf ion of Congress a bill making a general reform of the tariff. I take liberty to address you through the columns of the New York Herald, because I doubt the wisdom ot the course which general report says you arj determined on. l am a JJemocrat acd a free trader, but-1 am a Demo crat lirst of all because I believe that it is essential for the country's welfare that the Democratic party shall be continued i i power. It is capable of mailing tariff and all other needed re fornia ; the Republican jjarty as now constituted will make none. The presidential election comes next year. If ymi succeed in making couoiderablc changes iu the tariff you will disorganize business in the midst of the presidential canvass. Moreo ver, you will give excuse to the Re publican protectionist millionaire manufacturers to combine to close up the workshops during the canvis, on j reteuce of ' tariff changes ruiuing th'Jin. There will be no time to show tho beneficial effects of tariff reform, and the people, a majority of whom are now protectionists because they Lave never been thoroughly iustruct ed on the question, will vote against us and defeat us. If you bring forward your measure fia 1 tail, which is most probable, you v iil get the odium of sec-king for a change the good effects of which you i cannot demonstrate, and arain you " i will sacrifice votes in important States For these reasons, as a Democrat, I ts U.H jiiimmici ii iciiu ui ajio Tcaii'i- ; i, - . r L' cay said he did not believe Mr. ilas i rediteJ with Jt0 bc untimdv, sid would do mdess especially urged to ther.f.re uusvise. Th lt,f(re do so by the President. Ihi3 view of ,. ,,. ,. . , K ... the matter is lent additional weisrht from the fact that Mr. Dickinson, to whom the post of Postmaster-General was said to have been 'tendered, em phatically denies such report. Look ing at the matter all around, a veter an politician said to-day that with Colquitt in the Cabinet it would leave its sectional construction the saine as now, while if Mr. Vilas and Mr. Dickerson should go in it would leave Mr. Garland, the only representative of the South that in fact would leave the South without representation as Mr. Garland represents the South west and Mr. Bayard the Middle States. Ii, as is generally assumed, Mr. Vilas is a candidate for Vice President, it would be a political mis take for him to accept the Interior Department portfolio, with Mr. Dick erson as Postmaster-General, as it could not help but breed antagonism from Mr. Muldrow and Mr. Steven son's friends, which will be likely to prove formidable in the next nomi nating convention. Viewing the mat ter from all sides, it now seems prob able that the solution of Mr. Lamar's Eromotion to the Supreme Bench will e Senator Colquitt as Secretary of the Interior, Mr. Vilas to remain where he is, and Governor Gordon to succeed Mr. Colquitt as Senator from Georgia. Where? Ob, Where? Where,oh where, has the young man gone who graduation clothes put cn, some time along the last of May, and owned the whole wide world for a day ? And where is the sweet girl graduate, who chanted an essay dread with fate, and started out with a gig gling frown to turn this old world up side down ? And" where is last year's candidate, who. had things fixed for this year's slate ? Who carried around, as you'd believe, a couple of counties in his sleeve? And where is the scribe with the vaulting will, who tried a long felt want to fill, and courted shekels and renown with a minion pper in a bourgeois town? The lad has divided the world up fair and owns but his own eight-billiouth share; the sweet girl graduate is a grand surprise, and conquers the world with well-made pies ; the can didate with the deathless "gall" is fixing himself for. another fall ; while the journalist with the haughty crest has gone the way of last year's nest.

Very well ; abolish the tobacco tax and make wool free, and there rest In that way you will bring immediate prosperity to the suffering woolen, manufacturers of Nnw England, New York, New Jersey and their thousands of workmen. You will, of course, gst curses from Ohio (Republican), Cali fornia (Republican) and Texas (Dem ocratic). But you will give relief to a great industry prostrated in many States. If you persist in tariff tinkering you will probably be beaten and you will certainly hazard the election next year. If you lose you will put back tariff reform a dozen years.

This is the advice of an old man who has tilled the soil for forty years: I am an old man, upwards of three score years ; Duriug two-score of which I have been a tiller of the soil. I caa not say that 1 am now, but I have been rich, and have all that I need, do not owe a dollar, have given my children a good education, and when I am called away will leave enough to keep the wolf away from the door. My experience has taught me that One acre of land well prepared and well cultivated produces more than two which receives .only the same amount of labor used on one. One acre of clover or grass is worth two of cotton where no clover or grass is raised. One cow, horse, mule, sheep or hog well fed is more profitable than two kept on the same .amount necessary to keep one well. No farmer, who buys oats, corn, or w heat, fodder and hay, for ten years can keep the sheriff from the door in the end. The farmer who never reads the pa pers, sneers at book fanning and im provements, always has a leaky roof, poor stock, broken down fences, and complains of bad seasons. - -The farmer who is above his busi ness and entrusts it to another to man age, will soon have no business to at attend to. VANCE TO THE FxlBMERS. "I AM NOT A FARMER, BUT A POLITICIAN." Abstract of Senator Vance's Speech, Delivered at the 25th Annual Fair of the Cumberland County Agricultural Society. From the Faytlttville Observer. I am not a farmer but a politician, and as such am ever willing to speak a word to promote North Carolina's main interest, which is agriculture. It is also the greatest business of tlie' world. By it is to be solved the great est problem of time how to feed the human race. Wars have become less frequent, public morals have improv ed . and so the generation of man lengthens. The tendency of popula tion i3 to out-grow the means of sus taining life. The business of the far mer is is to check this tendency by in creasing the food supply, and thus he becomes the savior of mankind iu temporal matters. The demands ot man's animal nature must be supplied. In the Middle Ages the aristocracy was the best fedjclass, and hence held complete ascendency. There is the sami difference between well-fed and ill-fed nationsas between well-fed and ill fed classes or individuals. From the plains of Aran westward went the inarch of civilization. Amer ica wa3 discovered, and relieved .Eur ope of its excessive population. B.it thereure now no new -worlds to dis cover. The time comes when w.,can not aflord to neglect the old, well-w?-a lands for those that are new and fresh. How can you, farmers, meet ihe de mands of steadily increasing popula- tioa ? farmers, you don t know ev erything, even about farming. You must know more science. You live more by tradition than by science. You are but repeating the experiments of v ur fathers, and this costs much in both money and time. Our father- did not know more than we know. la our day sciegee ids you by finding new compounds of fertility, art aids you by makiug suitable implements aud by furnishing the means of rapid transportation. But you mu?t aid yourselves One wav of doing this is by organization. All tr:.d-j3 and p.-- fescions are now organized but y.ni. Nothing can be said against this whoa it is for righteous ,nds and righteous done. You need organization to se cure reliable apd honest labor. For no sufficient reason a laborer leaves you in the busiest season and is em ployed by your neighbor only to prac tice the same trick on him. Organization is needed in order to secure prompt and reliable informa tion about the markets of the world. Why should you not know the real condition-of the cotton crop the world over as well as the Wall street broker? You have very little to say about the prices of what you sell or buy. Organization is needed to secure healthful legislation. Farmers never lobby. In my life I never saw a far mer in Washington lobbying for his interests. When a man takes me by one button-hole and begs me to keep up the duty on blankets, trace-chains, &c, why don't you catch me by the other button-hole and say 'Vance, don't?" The banks have secured a monopoly by loboying. The bond holders get their interest paid in gold and pay no tax on their bonds by lob bying. Thus have the railroads se cured a monopoly. Farmers quietly submit, yet they have power to shape legislation somewhat in favor of the man who produces from the soil. The South is prosperous compared with its former self, but not when com pared with the great Northwest. Not a single farmer in North Carolina has made a fortune since the war by farm ing. If he escape the sheriff he is prosperous. Cut we see dealers in farmers' products get rich. No people ever yet grew rich by raising one crop from year to year. Those who thus larm are ruining the soil. No one has a right to treat land as if he were to own it forevir. We hold our lauds for our children. There is nu agricultural wealth with out rich soii, no rich soil without stock, no good stock without grasses. Farmers, you are the stewards of a merciful God for producing and dis tributing food for all the rest of man kind. As such I respect you. May you soon see and satisfy the pressing needs of the times. How "Onr Zeb" Kaises Turnips. What Speaker Carlisle Says of tho Elect ions. I have heard enough of the returns to know that the Democracy is in the ascendancy, and that Cleveland will be renominated and ie-elected next year. New York and Virginia were J tne Dattie-heids, and the result in those States settles the question.. No well-informed man attached any im portance to the Republican predict ions about Maryland, and yet it is comforting to know that we have lost nothing there, Senator Vance hss a new way of "raising turmp3." In hi3 Catawba county agricultural address he sail, as reported in the Asheville Citizen : "Among other valuable and timely suggestions he made the following on the best, surest and most agreeable way of raising turnips. He said his experience wa that the man should go into some other man's field, sur round the turnip i carefully with his knees, get a solid grip on the top, pull with all necessary force, and then skin by the light of the moon.' He naively added (no pun meant here) '-his method rarely ever fails to raise a good turnip." The Mirror Man Skins His Shins. It is claimed that the highest facul ty of language is to conceal thought. It may be, but when a man falls over a wheel barrow in the dark, it seems to lose its grip somewhat in that par ticular. Wilson Mirror. THE LAMAR-SPARKS IMRROGLIO. Land Commissioner Sparks bas Re signed his PoslJon. . While there have been before now cases of a conflict of authority between superior and subordinate in the Fed eral administration, there never has been a case when public opinion has been more unequivocally on the side of the former than in the quarrel be tween Secretary Lamar and Land Commissioner Sparks. , With regard to the merits of the controversy it is necessary to eay very little. Mr. Sparks wanted to run the Secretary as well as the Land Office. The Secretary at first mildly protested and then when his iuferior officer's autocracy had got to be ineufferable.ie indited a letter to him. The letter leaves hardly anything of the Land Com missioner. This might have been ex pected as the result of any serious dif ference between two such men as L. Q. C. Lamar and W. A. J. Sparks. The former is too well known in char acter and temperament to require de scription in a Southern iournal at least. Mr. Sparksis that ex-member of Congress whom some evil fate foisted upon the President when near ly every other officer of prominence under the Government appointed by Mr. Cleveland hud soma faint idea of what his duties were aud some com mon sense in the execution of them. In the Congress Mr. Sparks had the reputation of being the groat W estern brawler. Personally incorruptible, aud not thoroughly an ill-natured man, he was too quick on all occasions t; res:nt aflronts or imagined affronts. During h's term of servifte he was en gaged in a ruiubsr "f unseemly wrau gtes and at least three or fo'T personal rencontres on tho floor of the house. With such a wild eat even so amiable uul intellectual a man aj Mr. Lam&r could not get along. Nobody ever does who has auy relations with him. ihi3 is the universal testimony from ir inning to u ies-ieager. H sshutftoii. XOTKMliEH. Although November has well nigh gotK', The Sentivel thinks that its readers will enjoy, on this Thauksgiv iny day, tho following poem by that talented daughter of North Carolina, Mrs L. I-. Amis. It is in some' re-t-;iects like Gray's Elegy, and like that poem, is good enough to be read on any day, in any month. Now bleak November comes with chill ing blast With lowering clouds tl - sky is over . cast ; Through leafless trees the north wind coldly sighs, And swiftly toward the South the wild goose flies 1 There twittering 'mong the dog leaves is heard x The English sparrow, and the brown snow-bird ; While "neath the hay-rick, snugly nest ling close, The lazy poodle makes his winter house. The dead leaves flutter through the gar den walks, The pale chrysanthemum droop on their stalks ; The willow bends its frosted boughs and weeps O'er graves of summer joys, it vigil keeps. The whistling winds portend a coming . storm. And nestling chickens cluck their quick alarm ; The timid lambs, and sheep with tink ling bells Rush by, with instinct true, which e'er foretells The need of shelter, and a safe retreat From winds that pierce, and driving rains that beat Around and o'er the poor unsheltered wight, Who trudges through the dark Novem ber night. Within the homestead, bright and joy ful gleams The crackling hearthstone free reflect ing beams Of welcome light, from dripping win dow pane, And cheerful rays out-flashing through the rain. East winds still wail around the drip ping eaves Rain drops still patter down, on dead oak leaves ; But weary feet that trudge along the lane. Grow joyful a3 the light gleams thro' the pane ! Son-in-Law of tun Confederacy. When Gen. Phil. Cook came to be introduced to Miss Wiunie Davis, sh was presented os the "Daughter of the Confederacy." The gallant General w as led captive at once by her beauty and winning grace, and, extending his hand, he said : "Miss Winnie, I am a widower; please enroll me as a candidate for the position of son-in-law of the Confederacy." This bright sal ly met with a round of applause, aud only goes to demonstrate that "The bravest are the tendered, The loving are the daring." Col. Mark Hardin, the veteran Clerk of the House, was sitting neai when J udge Nisbet related the inci dent, and sageJy remarked that "there would be one source of congratulation in marrying the daughter of the Con federacy the groom would never be bothered with his mother-in-law."

It is rumored that Judge Walter dark will soon resign his seat on the S-rerior Court bench ou account of the ill health of his wife. The younge-st delegate to the Bap tist Couventivin at Durham last week was Miss Minnie Dixon Brouhtou of Raleigh. She is just 30 months old. It is expected that Rev. Dr. J. D. Huff ham, one of the ratvt earnest and valued Baptist preachers in the State, will accept a call to the church at Goldsboro. . The Sent'ivei. is very glad to hear that Col. Rowland, the" Farmer Con gressman is much improved in health, tie is now in Baltimore under medi cal treatment. At the close of Gov. Fitzhugh Lee's address at the Weidou Fair, the lead er of the old Confederates piop:sed "three chesrs for General Fitzhugh Lee, the next Vice-President of the United States." The Leader says, the Tomlinson Manufacturing Company, of Arch dale, Randolph county, mude and sold during October thirty five hund red dollars worth of shoes and are still away behind with their orders. The Wilson Advance compliments Judge Shipp very much on his able administration of affairs at court last term. Wonder if the Advance doesn't want to run him for Governor? If so, put him in Brother Daniels, the ring is still open. Iu the classification sent out from Washington of the political complex iou of the next House of Representa tives, Mr. John Nichols, of Raleigh, is put down with the Independents. Ugh ! What a blunder I Johnny is a Rad, full blown, and belongs to the Republican bench show. There are thieves and thieves, but about the most original theft theSEN tinll has heard of lately was a man who put a cannon bail and a bottle of molasses in a bale of cotton and then carried it to Charlotte and sold it. It was discovered just before the cotton was put in the compress. Cannon btlls aud molasses- well, what next ? The booming town (escuse us, cii f) of Durham to-day has just cause for thanksgiving. Just about a year ago it was almost burned out. Today it stauds rehabilitated, better oft than lietjre. A Thanksgiving turkey as big a the Durham Bull could hardly do t he subject justice. On last Wednesday, the 9th inst., near Jessup's Mill, in the lower part of this county, a large black boar was c.iught in a steel trap by Mr. M. K. Culbreth in Harrison's creek swamp. The bear weighed over 250 lb3. He was carried about mile above to the mill and numbers went to see him. Equal to a circus. Fayeltevillc News. Last week our Baptist brothers met in Durham and the convention was one of interest and profit. The officers elected for the ensuing year are : Geo. W. Blount, Esq., of Wilson, president; F. P. Halyard, of Oxford and Rev. II. A. Brown, of Winston, vice-presidents. The old secretaries, N. B. Broughton, of Raleigh, and Rev. G. W. Green, of Moravian Fallsx were reelected. Next month the directors of the Agricultural Department will meet to elect a director of the Experiment Station. The Sentinel knows both the gentlemen who are spoken of for that position : Mr. T. D. Haigh, of Fayetteville and Mr. H. B. Battle, of Raleigh, and knows them both to be able, competent men. We do hope the position will be given to a North Caro linian instead of to somebody from another State. North Carolina has competent men. Let us honor them. The StatesvlUe Forgery Case. Mr. W. T. Bailev who was tried at Statesville last week upon the charge of forgery, and found guilty by the jury, was last Friday arraigned before Judge Walter Clark to receive his sentence. Judge Clark sentenced him to a term of ten years in the State penitentiary. Mr. Bailey, through his counsel, en tered an appeal from the judgment of the court, and his bond was fixed at $1,500. The case created a great deal of interest on account ot the promi nence of the parties engaged in the suit. The suit was brought against Mr. Bailey by Mr. W. W. Walton, as executor of the late Dr. A. D. Gage. In 1880, Mr. Bailey bought a tract of land from Dr. Gage for $3,500, and was to pay $333J per year until the whole debt was paid up. Mr. Baily had paid two thousand dollars at the time Dr. Gage died. About IS months after the Doctos death, Mr. Bailey, in settling with Mr. Walton, present ed a receipt for eight hundred dollars, with Dr. Gage's name to it and asked for credit. Mr. Walton thought tor two reasons, that the receipt was not genuine. First, Mr. Bailey had not presented it within twelve months af ter Dr. Gage's death, as the law re quires, tnd a3 Mr. Walton had adver tised to this effect, and had had one payment inade by Mr. Bailey, and at that time Mr. Bailey paid the iuterest upon the whole outstanding indebted ness (five hundred dollars.) Next the h i.idwriting was not that of Dr. Gage. Mr. Bailey does not lack sympathy, lie had previously borne an unques tionably good reputation, and by the witnesses i'i court proved a good character, sure.

A New Religions Departure -Industry and Enterprise a Duty. The evangelist Pearson, in his recent revival sermons at Salisbury, dwelt upon tho necessity of all being engag ed in some steady, active, healthful work, and especially of people of means furnishing employment for the poor. Result, a cottou factory started in Salisbury. We have long thought that this is just what both the pulpit and the press had better be doing rather than drum ming eo incessantly on abstract prob lems the one in theology and the other in politics. What tlie masses of mankind need is a stimulus to sober, industrious habits, with the hope oft buttering their condition iu life.
