Our readers are the judges as to wheth er or not the paper has filled its mission well. What we have done we have done. Whatever mistakes we have made we regret and hope they may serve as warnings to us in the future. In whatever the paper has fallen short in its full duty to its readers and the interests it speaks for, we feel deep regret. The paper has lived through the most trying ordeal, perhaps, known to North Carolina journalism since 18G.. The patronage which we have received, whether it lias been liberal or not, we greatly anpieciate. We make no scroll of promise for the future- All' things considered, we hope to be able to do as well for our readers in the future as we have done in the past. PE ITER FIX A NCI A L COXDITIOX. The Mn,iii f(i( turt r's Record of Balti more has recently sent out through the South letters of inquiry concerning the financial condition of the country. Letters from all parts of the South were published by that paper last week showing that agricultural interests of the South are in good shape, the farm- . .1 1.1. tl,,.n thoi' llQVf ers are less in uoui't man lcen for many years ; there are abun dant supplies of corn and other provis ions for the next year ; and the farmers generally are in a better condition and on a safer basis than they have been for rci v many years. This is doubt less a true representation of the ca-e, for those letters cover the whole southern field from Maryland to Texas. And while the prices of cotton are distressingly low, the farmers can better bear up under it than they could have done six or seven years ago before they got back to tire old plan of raising (heir supplies at home. A ROUT WESTERS DISCONTENT. The December number of The Forum is filled with choice articles. Among the most interesting articles is one by J. II. Canfield, Chancellor of the Uni versity of Nebraska, at Lincolnton, "Is the West Discontented? A Study of Local Facts," Is the subject oi the ar ticle. Chancellor Canfield shows by facts gathered from his own observation in Lincolnton, a city ol 50,000 people, and in the rural districts, that there is nothing like the discontent in the West that most people believe. He has found by investigation that the most of the discontent is in the ranks ol the agricultural classes, and that only a small per cent, oi them are living in actual discontent. We quote : "It is not probable that the hard times have borne much more heavily upon the farmer during the last lew years than upon business men of all classes; but the farmers as a whole have had less reserve power with which tolmeet the struggle. Even in Nebras- tfi however, there have been fewer men sold oil from their farms than have been sold out of their stores ; there has leen less money lost, in proportion to tfie amount lent, bv those who have given credit to the farmers than by those who have extended credits in the business world ; and it is not too much to say that there lias been more honesty and manliness m connection with finan cial transactions among farmers than among those in the business world. The farmer who can fail, yet continue to live as extravagantly as before, keep ing his horses, carriages and servants, and Jus place in all social functions, is a rare sight." To make his investigation more thor ough Chancellor Canfield made broad inquiries as to the condition of the peoplo in Nebraska, and he says on this point : "There seems to be no question that the people of this State are almost to a family better of! than they were ten or fit teen years ago. As far as being able to give their children better edu cational advantages than the parents enjoyed, all correspondents answer that the educational systems of the present are far in advance of those of the past, and that the child of the humblest citizen has letter opportunities to-day than most of the children of even the well-to-do classes of fifty years ago." Such a review of the situation in the far West by so eminent authority is indeed refreshing to North Carolina readers, who have heard and read eo much of discontent and revolution in (Corrt-HpondRDo to The ijeworBAT. ) Washington, D. C.Dec. 10, ISO 4, Messrs. Henderson and Grady were i the only members of our House delega tion who refunded to the first roll call. Messrs.! Ransom and Jury is were both present' when the Senate convened. Senator Ransom walks with a cane, limps a litlle, but he shows no other ign of his recent runaway accident. Senator Jarvis tells me the result m North Carolina would have been differ ent it the "primaries" idea hart been brought to the front earlier in the cam paign. The Senate caucused all the week on a resolution to change the rules of that body in favor of cloture. The motives underlying this was to give Mills, Dan iels Vila3 and "cuckoo" Senators a chance to take up .the "pop gun bills and pass them. The caucus remained in session until a late hour l-riday night. The main speech was made by Senator Ransom, whose masterful effort was in the naturejof a revelation. For years he has not made a lengthy speech in thcSenate and his abilities as an orator were as a sealed book to his jounger colleagues. He held then undivided attention for nearly an hour as with his eloquence, his logic, and bis patriotic utterance, he pleaded against the Senate being swept off its feet, so to speak, by the current of the passing hour. He rehearsed the long years during which the Senate had been true to the traditions and the par poses of the founders of the govern ment ; he pictured that body as the only barrier between absolutism and the people ; and with impassioned tones appealed to his colleagues of the South to remember that if it had not been for the power intrusted to a mi nority, the people of that section might have been without the representation which they now enjoyed. He infused into his words a depth of feeiing that carried conviction, and when lie con cluded his brilliant peroration, even thefriends of cloture were moved to commendation. The effect of Senator Ransom's effort was immediately seen in the announcement by Senator Pugh, of Alabama, that while he had been disposed to regard with favor the prop osition to change the rules he could no longer hold such opinions in the face of the arguments which had jut been uttered.. Other Senators, including Mr. Palmer, of Illinois, and Mr. Pasco, of Florida, added their strength to the anti-cloture side, and against the tide of opposition Mr. Vila, Mr. Vest, Mr. George and Mr. Perry were powerless In other words, the sentiment in favor of cloture which seemed to be upper most last Tuesday was completely re versed. In the meantime the resolu tion of Senator Daniel which proposed a cloture in its first section and referred to the most important bills in its sec ond clause, had been divided so that each paragraph could be considered separately. Mr. Daniel seeing the sen timent of the caucus, arose and asked leave to withdraw the first part of his resolution. Ransom, Gorman, Brice, Harris and the anti-"cuckoo" Senators carried the dav. This victory makes any tariff legislation absolutely impossible. Sen ator Ransom went home Friday night to rest until Monday morning. This caucus' action brings the financial problem to the front in both Houses. This, and the passage of the needed appropriation bills, will constitute the main work of the Filty-third Congress. There is a general disposition to endorse Carlisle's financial policy as outlined in the Message. Judge Bynum came back to Congress Irom the "happy hunting grounds" near Statesville, North Carolina, lie says he killed ten dozen partridges. He is charmed with his visit. Francis N. Cooke of Louisburg, North Carolina, has been appointed a cadet to West point. Zeb Vance Walser, Esq., candidate for Speaker of our next Legislature has been here this week. He thinks that Pritchard will be the republican senator. i i r : - I i . t 1 i . a j-ion, cancellation, aisu ii;t-i wr.- 5 to -nr. .1. .-. ii.n , p 1 the rate of percent, i-er annum ana ( imT.n-I tax ..f i .. r , .,;,.;.,,;- The attend int.- , f maturing ten years alter u.en i-m-? j KAy one-halt ot one er cent.

Nothing could bo worse, or further removed from sensible finance, than the relations existing between the cur rency the government has issued, the gold held for its redemption and the means which mu.-,t be resorted to for the purpose of replenishing such re demption fund when impaired. Even if the claims upon the fund wore con fined to the obligations originaily in tended and if the redemption of these obligations meant at their cancellation, the fund would be very small. But the obligations when received and redeemed in gold are not cancelled but are reissued and may do duty many times by way of drawing gold from the treasury. Thus we have an endless chain in operation, constantly deplet ing the treasury's gold and never hear a final rest. As if this was not bad enough, we have, by a statutory decla ration that it is the policy of the gov ernment to maintain the parity be tween gold and silver, aided the force and momentum of this exhausting pro cess, and added largely to the currency obligations claiming this peculiarity of gold redemption. Our small gold reserve is thus subject to decrease bom every side. The de mands that increase our danger also increase the necessity of protecting this reserve against depletion, and it is most unsatisfactory to know that the protec tion afforded is only a temporary pallia tion. It is perfectly and palpably plain that the onh- way under present condi tions by which this reserve when dan gerously depleted can be replenished is through tho issue and sale of the bond ol the government for gold, and yet congress has not only thus far declined to authorize the issue of bonds best suited to such a' purpose, but there seems a disposition in some quarters to deny both the necessity and power for the issue of bonds at all. I cannot for a moment believe that any of our citizens are deliberately Avilling that their government should default in its pecuniary obligations, or that its financial obligations should be reduced to a silver basis. At any rate, J should not feel that my duty was done if I omitted any effort 1 could make to avert such a calamity. KKPKAI. OK Tilt: STATE 15 AN K TAX. (Questions relating t j our banks and currency are closely connected with the subject just reierreu to and tney also prc-ent some unsatisfactory features, prominent- among them are the lack of elasticity in our currency circulation and its frequent concentration in finan cial centres when it is most needed in other parts of the country. The abso lute divorcement of the government from the circulation of the currency of the country is a condition that cannot be immediately reached. or retire its notes m the nr.-i instance :t its own otiice or at agencies to U de.-ignated by it, and that no fixe I reserve need be maintained on account of deposits. And the very Important feature of this is the exemption of state banks from taxation by the United States in cases where it is shown to the satisfac tion of the secretary of the treasury and comptroller of the currency by banks claiming such exemption that they have not hud ou-tanding their circu lating notes exceeding 7 per cent of their paid up and unimpaired capital. That their stockholders are individ ually liable for the redemption of their circulating notes to the full extent of their ownership of stock ; that the lia bility of said banks upon their circu- ating notes constitutes, under their late law. a first lien upon their assets, and that such banks have kept and maintained a guarantee fund in the United States legal tender notes, in cluding treasury notes of 1S'.0 equal to 30 per cent, of their outstanding notes when presented at their principal or branch ofhees. It-is quite likely that this scheme may be usefully amended in some of its details, hut I am satisfied it furnishes a basis lor a very great improvement in our present banking and currency sys tem.

I shall therefore con tent mvself with an unqualified endorse ment ol the secretary's proposed changes in the law and a brief and imperfect tafement of their permanent features. It is proposed to repeal all laws pro viding for the deposit of United States raids as security for circulation to per mit national banks to issue circulating notes not exceeding in amount 7.) per cent, of their paid up and unimpaired capital, provided they deposit with tho government as a guarantee fund in United States legal tender notes of I SIM.), a sum equal in amount to 30 per cent, of the notes they desire to issue, this deposit to be maintained at all times, but wnenever any bank retires any part of its circulation a proportional part of its guarantee fund shall be re turned to it to permit the secretary of the treasury to prepare and keep on hand ready for issue in case an increase in circulation is desired blank national bank notes for each bank having circu lation, and to repeal the provisions of the present law imposing limitations and restrictions upon banks desiring to reduce or increase their circulation, thus permitting such increase or reduc tion within the limit of 75 per cent, of capital to be quickly made as emergen cies arise. In addition to the guaran tee fund required, it is proposed to provide a safety fund for the immediate redemption of the circulating notes of of failed banks, by imposing a small annual tax, say one half of 1 per cent., upon the average circulation of each bank until the funds amount to 5 per cent, of the total circulation outstand ing. When a bank fails its guarantee fund is to be paid into this safety fund, and its notes are to be redeemed in the first instance from such safety fund caused thereby to be made good from the immediately available cash assets of said bank, and if there should be insufficient for such impairment to be made good by pro rata assessment among the other banks, their contribu tions constituting a first lien upon the assets of the failed banks in favor of the contributing banks. askmg their stationery bills in cash.
