Thursday, July 19, 1883. E. E. HILLURD, Editob. ENTERED AT THE POST OFFICE AT SCOTLAND NECK, N..C, AS SECOND-CLASS MAIL HATTER. sddCII 'iteration- above our fellows (ai bone) did not make us depreciate this time-honored anniversary which we have looked to with pride from our earliest recollections. The As sociation assembled in the "Academy of Waynesville and was called to order by the President, Mr. G. S. Bradshaw, of the Ashboro Courier. In behalf of the citizens of Waynes ville, the Mayor, W. B. Ferguson. Esqr., gave an address of welcome, which we published in our last issue. The first business was the election of officers. Mr. Henry A. London, of the Chat ham Record, was elected President. Mr. James A. Robinson, of the Wins ton . Leadtr, was elected first Vice President, Mr. Palemon John, of the Elizabeth City Carolinian, was elect ed second, and Mr. Josephus Dan iels, of the Wilson Advance, was elected third. Mr. Jordan Stone, of the Asheville Citizen, was elected Secretary and Treasurer, and Mr. Frank Vaughn, of tue JUizabetn Uity f alcon, was elected Assistant Secretary. Messrs S. A. Ashe, of the Raleigh News- Observer, H. A. Foot, of the Warren ton Gazette, Jas. H. Enniss, of the N. C. Farmer, E. A. Oldham, of the Winston Sentinel, and E. C. Hack ney, of the Durham Recorder, were elected as the Executive Committee for the ensuing year. Mr. G. S. Bradshaw, of the Ash boro Courier, was elected Orator for the next meeting of the Association, and Mr. Theo. 11. Hill, of Raleigh. was elected poet. Mr. M. McGehee, the Commissioner of Agriculture, havinsr been invited to address the Association, favored the body with his presence and delivered an elo quent and highly instructive address on the subject of agriculture. The body adjourned to partake of the bountiful dinner which was prepared at ths National Hotel. The dinner was given complimentary by the citizens of Waynesville, under the direction of Messrs. Goode and Nor- veil, At 2 o'clock the bell rang for din ner and the quill drivers of North Carolina sat down to a dinner of a greater variety and better served than professional men of any kind generally see. It was all that could be asked for. Attentive waiters wel supplied every guest with whatever was called for. Even the fair wives and daughters of the good citizens seemed to be happy to fly to the beck or call of any Press-man during that hour, Elsewhere we publish the bil of fare. a il . at a . Alter amner tne Association as sembled and transacted some busi ness, the details of which would hardly be interesting to the public generally, and the want of space wil torbid our giving full details o everything. One part of the business transacted was the passing of a reso lution that hereafter the members of the Press pay their own expenses wherever they assemble. We could not resist the pleasure of strolling over a mile to the White Sulphur Springs, so we lost the remainder of ine evening session. At nigM; Col ground of the uoletcombinelSd maltSBctJ Railroad companie8,rttie crea OUR VACATION-TRIP TO THE MOUK-TAINS-THE PRESS ASSOCIA TION. On 12th of June the editor of The Commonwealth left the office to en joy a short vacation, take a little rest, visit the mountains, attend the Press Association, and then return to the pleasures (?) of his office. Of our few days of vacation we have given our readers some ac count m notes by the way. After spending a few days at our old home, we returned to Raleigh to meet sev eral of our editorial brethren and en joy their company on the way to Waynesville. Not having been engaged in the profession of journalism more than a few months, we knew very few of the editors of the State. To know the members of the Press was full compensation in every way for being away a few weeks. On 2nd of July we started for Waynesville,-and after falling in with some "knight of the quill" at every station we reached the moun tains, and we were so delighted with the country, the beautiful scenery, &c, that we forgot to take any notes, and so shall have to write from mem ory. Stopping for supper at Greensbo ro, we partook of a bountiful supper at the Benbow Hcftise. At Henry Station next morning we stopped for breakfast, and thence up the moun tain on the observation car we caught our first glimpse of the much extolled scenery of Western North Carolina. Christain Reid's "Land of the Sky" has found a place in almost every one's library, and to it we refer our readers for any description of these beautiful mountains. Had we spent our earlier years in those mountainous regions, wander ing in the lovely vales, resting in the coves of the mountains, climbing on the towering peaks to catch frequent glimpses of the cloud-kissing sum xaits in the shimmering sunlight of early morning, and the golden rays of evening twilight, had these been the privileges of our boyhood days, perhaps our inspiration would be sufficient to give some fit description of the wild picturesqueness of this Lwauuiui country, we admired, as everybody whosees and rides over it does, the great engineering ability displayed in the railroand up the mountains to Asheville. Riding on the observation car, we first look up the mountain and think it more than wondenui irwe reach the track of road we see winding around the mountain above us ; and then, as the engine puffs and tugs up the winding track, hurrying us through tunnels darker than night itself, then over trestles of height not easilv to h w rf conjectured, we look back .u I of the mountain , , -f - aelow and grow . . ae thought of having come I subject, and our short space permits so far up the mountain side, and us only to say tnat tue address was . . - eloquent both in composition and in oannm a 1 r iiira v- rvuav.iuw in miii-ii i m if i it one of the most delightful views to i be bad in all that Western land. The water of the Springs though not at- all- pleasant to the taste at first, soon becomes better, and its medicinul qualities are said to be fitie. Friday morning we.Jeave Waynes ville to be met at Asheville, t.ie Queen City of the West" by phae tons enough to take us, with: the members of the South Carolina Press, to the top of Richmond Hill where the grandeur of the scenery forbids any attempt at description. It is simply subume. while the members of the Associa tion enjoyed - th banquet" given by the. citizens of Asheville at night, we spent the night with a friend near the city, and though the toast were free and speeches eloquent at the banquet, and though Zeb. Vance was there to make the occasion lively, yet we were contented to be aw ay, for we are very sure that we listened to music quite as sweet, and shared in conversation quite as engaging, and spent the time with as attractive representation ot the fair sex as those who engaged in the whirl of ball-room that night. And we know we got more flowers, for we compared next morning, A short trip up the t rencn Broad to the Warm Springs completed the roundelay of pleasure of the occasion. The scenery up this river is fine. The "Racing River," dashing along at a rapid flow, presents a beautiful contrast to the mountain cliffs rising on either side. After bathing in the warm waters, we all partook of the richest feast prepared and given com plimentary by H. A. Gudger, fcsqr, the Proprietor. The time for leaving nurries us from Warm Springs Hotel, and the want of space stops our pen just here We have not said what we wish to about some things relative to the Press of the State, but will speak o them in the future. change has Rumor has it that been made in our Post Office. John T. Brinkley is to succeed J. C. Pitt- man, who has filled the position most acceptably for the last six years. Pittman has made an efficient, honest, and obliging officer ; and all classes unite in saying that he has made the best officer that we have ever had. He now has a petition which was voluntarily gotten np by the colored people when there was an effort to remove him sometime last year. Nearly every one in this section signed the petition. We un derstand that the Department says that this is the best kept office in Eastern Carolina. There is no reas on for his removal except that he is a Democrat. Until the election of last year, Brinkley was a pronounced Demo crat, as violent a paitizan as his capacities permitted him to be. At that time he voted for some of the Rtpublicar, uominees. Since then tion of an army of pensioners, the corrupt method of awarding contracts and the . toleration ot stupendous frauds and swindles, are some of the evils for which that party; must be held to account. The power of the President is al most unlimited, and he does not hes itate to wield that power for parti- zan purposes ; ne does not hesitate to invade the States with his unscrupu lous measures for the perpetuation of the life of a party that has outlived its mission and the day of its useful ness ; any act; be it never so dis graceful and disreputable, provided it helps his party, is tolerated, sanc tioned, approved. When the South, and the honest part of the North, blushed for shame that our country had produced such a man as Mahone the man elected by Democrats and bought by the Republicans the President, in recognition of his mag nanimous act, must pluck flowers and make him a bouquet. The people are sovereign ; para mount authority resides with them ; they can avert the threatening evils. But will the do it ? Do they see the danger ? Nothing save the loftiest patriotism on the part of the Democrats would have prevented anarchy and blood shed in 1876. Reform will never come through the Republican party. It is committed to an unjust, oppres sive, unconstitutional tariff. The Democratic party is committed to a just, constitutional tariff for revenue. The difference in the tenets of the two parties on this subject is plain and clear. But will our party fight it out on this line ? If it does victo ry is ours and the country is safe. But if we split hairs on this question we are destined to inevitable defeat. If modification of the present tariff law is not an issue, then there is no issue between the two great parties, for the present tariff law is the great evil around which all lesser evils re volve. An unjust system of protec tion is legislation for the few - at the expense of the many. By it corpo rations and individuals are made rich. Rich corporations and individuals concentrate their wealth, and by this means, the people are oppressed ; laws favorable to monopolies are passed, and voters themselves are bribed and influenced. If there is no issue between the parties on the subject of taxation then don't let us make a fight ; let us support the party in power, for men amount to nothing where there is no principle at stake. If the Democrats are successful and the tariff laws are not modified, the country will be dis V his life tms been wearisome and his appointed and they will be powerless I 4-n -.s..n.4- 4- It a wniv Atfilfl nrhi Ah 4-rtA j .
