The Democrat. E. E. MILLIARD, - - - - Editor. Published Every Thursday. Entered at the Post-Ofice at Scotland Neck, N. C, as Second Class Matter. THURSDAY. JANUARY 21, 18IKi. SCOTLAND NECK'S OPPORTUNI TY. As is seen in our editorial clipping from the New York Herald and the special correspondence to The Demo crat by T. J. Edwards from Salem, Mass., the South just now 1ms a great opportunity. The cotton mill interests of the entire nation are looking to wards the South. This is seen in every trade journal, textile periodical and -whatever medium we take that gives statistics concerning cotton mills. The mill-owners are going to invest in the South, and that right soon. Does Scotland Neck see any opportu ty in this? The Democrat sees a big opportu nity, and we hope to see an effort made at once to secure the attention of those manufacturers who are contemplating a move to the South. Let us have action, and have it once. Let us act now. We hope to see some thing done this week towards putting inducements before those great manu facturers. Scotland .Neck is an ideal town for such enterprises, and let us up at once and have them. Our own successful knitting mills furnish all the argument necessary for such action. THE SUFFERERS. Thus far Halifax county has done nothing in the matter of raising sup plies for the Nebraska sufferers. With the present abundance of corn and meat in the county it would seem a small matter to raise several car-loads and send to our suffering brethren of the West. We remember how the people of New York sent bountiful and generous supplies to the South Caroli na sufferers after the great storm of 1S93. Will not every section of the South that is blessed with bountifu supplies of provisions lend a hand to wards helping the people in Nebraska who are suffering by reason of long and continued drouths? Will not Halifax county do something? This is a great opportunity. Will our people seize it, or let it pass? BUTLER SUCCEEDS RANSOM. Mr. Marion Butler succeeds Hon. M. W. Ransom In the United States Sen ate, lie has worked indelatigably for several years with his eyes firmly set on the place. He has fully succeeded in all his plans. It remains to be seen what kind of a Senator he will make. Of course his warmest supporters do not expect the service for the State from him that was rendered by Sena tor Ransom. MASON AND OVERMAN. The Democratic caucus ol the Gen eral Assembly nominated Hons. T. W. Mason and Lee S. Overman for the places to be filled in the United States Senate. Ransom and Jarvis were left out on agreement. Of course the nom inations were only complimentary, as Butler and Pritchard will be the Sena tors, but the compliment means much to the worthy gentlemen upon whom it was bestowed. VICE-PRESIDENT'S DA UG LITER DEAD. Asiieville, N. C, Jan. 18. Miss Mary L. Stevenson, eldest daughter of Vice President Adlai E. Stevenson, died this afternoon at 1 :15 o'clock. Miss Stevenson came to Asheville about the middle of October, accompa nied by her mother, suffering from what was first considered to be a heavy cold, con ti acted on the coast of Maine. This, however, developed into chronic pneumonia, with tuberculosis and com plications of kidney trouble. All of the family, except her brother Lewis, were present. Preliminary funeral services will be held in the parlors of the Battery Park hotel to-morrow at 2 o'clock and the re mains will leave Asheville in a special car for Bloomington, 111., at 4 o'clock. Interment will occur Monday next. There is good reason for the popu larity of Chamberlain's Cough Reme dy. Davis &. Buzard, of West Monte rey, Clarion Co., say : "It has cured people that our physicians could do nothing for. We persuaded them to tay a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and they now recommend it with the rest of us." 25 and 50 cent bottles for sale by E. T. Whitehead & Co. ABOUT FREQUENT ELECTIONS. The Democrat has, for more than two years, held that elections in North Carolina are to frequent. Several times we have given our reasons for thinking so. Again we give them briefly and hope to see some action taken by the present Legislature that will put elec tions less frequent. . The Expense. The expense of a general election in North Carolina is simply enormous. It is two-told, but narrows down to dollars and cents, after all. The expense incurred by an elec tion is in actual expenditures of money and in loss of time. Say there are in round numbers 400,000 voters in North Carolina. Election day is now practi cally wholly lost from work and busi ness by every voter in the State. Now, it is a fair estimate to put every man's time at one dollar for that day. To be sure, many are not worth so much, but as many are worth more ; so we call election day lost by 400,000 voters at a cost of $400,000 from work and bus iness. For at least two months previous to the election there are constantly as many as fifty speakers in the field every day twenty-five for each party. They are generally the very ablest men that can be secured, and their time is worth on an average $5 a day. That is f 250 a day to be charged for the time of fifty speakers for at least fifty days, which makes .$12,500. Their traveling and other expenses average $5 a day each and that is .$12,500 more. This puts the cost of the speakers for a cam paign at $25,000. Now, oach voter in every campaign devotes one day to hearing the discus sions of "the issues of the day." This makes another $400,000. These figures make the cost ot an election $825,000, But there has been no estimate made for paying postage for the great flood of correspondence that is carried on by each political party during a campaign, nor for the cost of printing ballots for these 400,000 voters, the extra work of going to the county seats, making re turns, traveling to and from conven tions, &c. All these put together, we can easilv see that it costs North Caro lina at least one million of dollars every two years to hold elections. Nov, these figures apply to only what can be seen and easily calculated by any one, to sayr nothing ot the thou sands of dollars expended that the bright, broad daylight knows nothing about. And most of this expenditure is drawn one way or another from the men who can ill afford it. 2. Demoralization. With a gener al election every two years, the people hardly get settled from the effects of one before the forces must begin to muster for the next fray. And so we have it all the time. The people of North Carolina have scarcely seen a single year since the close of the war when there was not some political strife in the State. Strife either grow ing out of the effects of an election just past, or growing out of the one just ahead. All this is demoralizing, terri bly demoralizing. It has a tendency to keep the people disturbed and dis contented. It is a source of many riots and oftentimes blood-shed. It keeps the fires of envy and malice that grow out of personal difference in political opinions forever aglow. It saps the contentment, and therefore, the happiness of the people, and works gn. I harm in the everlasting flurry tha :omes through the excitement of heated campaigns. 3. Inconvenience. As to county officers, they sometimes barely learn the routine duties of their office before another man is elected, the office chan ges hands, and all is done over anew by the new officer. Thus, books and papers and records and what not are always more or less uncertain and un satisfactorily kept. By the time an officer learns his business he frequently has to step out and let some one else learn ; and so the office is all the time being handed from one to another, and the incumbent seldom remains long enough to have time to study the inter est and conveniences of his county. As to the Legislature, few magistrates or lawyers in the State get their Codes properly annotated before the laws are repealed, amended or otherwise tinkered at by a new Legislature. It seems to us that it will be wise to have our elections less often, when we consider the Expense, Demorilization and Inconvenience that grow out of the system as it nowr stands. The Democrat hopes that this mat ter will be brought before the present Legislature, and that they will take some action touching the same. There are other considerations which, we hope to present in future issues. THE GREA T COTTON MILLS MUST GO SOUTH. New York H'-rald. The remarkable movement of cotton mills from .New England to the South, which has recently attracted so much attention, continues and is likely to continue until the cotton-industries of the country centre, ;is they should do. in the sunny home of the cotton-plant. On the 23rd ult, the Herald repoited the decision ot two of the strongest cot ton mill companies of Massachusetts to build two large cotton factories in the South, each costing half a million dollar.-! or more. La.-t week, it was re ported, three of the largest manufac turing corporations of Lowell, Mass., aked the Massachusetts Legislature to o amend their charters that they may- do business in the South. The supe rior facilities in the cotton States for manufacturing cotton clothes, sheet- ings, baggings, drillings and coarse ginghams have become so apparent of late that the Fall River and other Northern centres of cotton manufac ture are quite exercised about the changed situ ition. A Fall River tele gram, which the Herald printed on Monday, says : Fall River miil-men, who have been forced unwillingly to recognize the fac t that the South has already become a factor of no mean importance in the manufacture of cotton cloth, are not disposed to look lightly at the pros pects of keener competition in the fu ture, in half a dozen years enough spindles have been placed in Southern mills to represent one-sixth of the en tire number in the country. Previous to the time mentioned the South con taind but one-fifteenth of the spindles of the United States. During the last four years the number of Southern mills has increased from 250 to 400 and the capital invested from $01,000,000 to $07,000,000. No better evidence could be afforded of the fact that the cotton manufacturing in terests of the North are destined to seek ere long the more congenial, more convenient and more economical field tor their development in the country south of the Potomac. The advantages of this transfer are obvious. In the first place, the chief raw material used is more cheaply ob tained by the Southern mill, and the saving in the cost of its transportation must always be a serious consideration with the manufacturer. The bright Southern climate is much more favor able to the health of the operatives than the rigorous climate of New En gland. Labor in the South is also more steady and cheaper than in the North. But there is still another and important consideration in favor of the South as the chief seat of our cotton manufactures, which seems to have been overlooked. The statistics of the Treasury7 Department show that seventy-three per cent, of all cotton cloths, colored and uncolored, exported from the United States go to countries situ ated south of the fortieth degree of north latitude, or to countries whose chief seaports are nearer Norfolk and Charleston than Boston. The develop ment of our export-trade in cotton piece-goods must for many7 years be looked for chiefly in the markets of Mexico, Central and South America, the West Indies, Africa and China. And these foreign markets can oe more easily reached from the seaports of the South than from any seaport of New England. It American cottons are to compete in foreign markets with those of Europe they must utilize all these advantages. Old England, by means of her iree trade policy, is now enabled tc import annually 1,700,000,000 pounds of cot ton (mostly from the United States), out of which she manufactures yarns and piece-goods of the value of $500, 000,000. Of this total production of cotton goods she exports and sells an nually in foreign markets an amount valued at about $325,000,000. Noth ing but our "protective" tariffs prevent the United States from reaping the vast profits which our free-trade rival reaps from the manufacture of A men can cotton. Of course we can never hope to do this while our "prorection ist" system is retained. The very means we have adopted to shut out for eign manufactures from our markets have necessarily shut us out of the markets ol the world. We can never sell freely to other countries from whom we refuse to buy freely. Unfortunate ly, the statesmen of New South are ig norant of this changeless and invinci ble law of trade. The people, however, are not as blind as their politicians. A small, but very able Virginia coun try paper, the Nelson Examiner, com menting recently upon the southward march of the cotton trade to get the advantage of cheaper raw materials, says :-"It would be the same in the iron trade the iron and steel manu facturers ot Pennsylvania would have to follow the cotton mills if iron ore was placed on the free-list and the du ty on finished articles made of iron re duced to a revenue basis.'"' But it pointedly remarks : In order to add a few thousand dol lars to the already enormous profits of the owners of iron and coal mines and the railroad carriers of those articles, a few Southern Congressmen stood out against free coal and iron ore and re duced duties on their products thus putting off indefinitely the day of abounding prosperity of the South. Magnificent, indeed, is the vista opened up to the South and to the whole country by the new commercial era now dawning upon it. But its new hopes are doomed to a long period of disappointment unless it throws off its blind political guides, who would strand it amid the fatal quicksands and on the sharp rocks ot "protectioniam." LOST CA USE VS. PENSIONS. LEE'S iIRTBDAY. Notes of Interest to Virginia and Carolina Finance. (Correspondence to Ths DrxwiiT.l Wasinotox. Januarv YK ! Mr. Jones, of Virginia, tried to fight the war over on the floor of the House yesterday, while discussing iension matters. Thirty years ago Rolert Edward Lee accepted the terms of sur render in good faith, and what he. the greatest Virginian since Washington did, the rest of us can do. Mr. Jones will serve Virginia better by working on a satisfactory finance bill. The Confederate Veteran Association will hold appropriate services to-night in their hall in this city in honor of Gen Lee, this being his birthday. The Aquia Creek train robler has U-en cauirht in Ohio and is on his way to Virginia to be tried for his life. Mr. Cleveland says if Congress fails to adjust financial matters satisfactorily he will not hesitate to call another ses sion. Secretary Lamont objects to the pro posed improvement of Turner's Cut, a part of Pasquotank River. Mr. Bower has obtained extra boxes and clerical allowance .for the Lenoir post-office. To-day at two o'clock eulogies on Senator Vance will begin. The first speaker will be Senator Ransom. He will be followed by Senators Morrill, Sherman, Chandler, Dubois, George, Vest, Blackburn, Gray, Call and Jarvis. News of the death of Miss Sterenson was received here yesterday afternoon. The family have the sympathy of the entire community. A number of Senators have been working during the week, trying to frame a bill on which the President and the silvermen can agree. It is thought they have succeeded. The tilt in the Senate, this week, between Gorman Mid Hill was a strug gle for the leadership ot the party. Both wish to be President. Senator .Ransom very adroitlv silenced Mr. Hill in the midst of the wrangle by threat ening him with some caucus secrets. Senator and Mrs. Jarvis are preparing to leave for North Carolina. The elec tion of Pritchard to take Vance's place and Marion Butler to take Ransom's was expected. When Marion Butler was here, about two weeks ago, he was confident that the understanding would be carried out to the letter. The items for North Carolina this week in the sundry civil bill are : For a new ward in the Wilmington Marine hospital, $7,000 ; the surgeon's cottage was refused ; the Cape Fear River is one to be provided with light ; life sav ing service, North Carolina and Vir ginia, $18,000. For punishment of violations of internal revenue law, $50,000 ; for the survey of Olmstead tract (32,000 acres) $20,000 ; mainten ance and ordinary expenses of South port quarantine station, $5,000 ; Gettys burg commission $50,000. The bill provides for the expenses of the govern ment from June 30, '05 to June 30, '96. It includes under the head of collectors, marshals, ect., for the year. It also includes the much discussed income tax amendment. T. J. Cheek, of North Carolina, has a case before the State Department for the seizure of his property 450 miles above the capital of Siarn, where he has been residing for eight years, engaged in business. He says Miss McGilvary, daughter of the missionary is soon to be married to the English vice-consul. The chief charge Cheatham makes in his communication to Congressman Woodard in regard to contesting his seat in the next Congress involves nearly every county in the district. He alleges that there was an agreement on the part of the poll-holders to make a return of his votes for Woodard and Woodard's for himself. This will be the main charge. It is said that the President is greatly interested in the movement which has been started since the recent elections to reform ballot methods in the South. Many Congressmen from that section have expressed themselves as favoring legislation by the several state legisla tures looking to an improvement of the elections system. Representative Black, from Georgia, who refused to accept his commission from fhe Governor as a Congressman-elect because it was charged that fraud had been committed by the Democratic managers in his district, has been highly commended by Mr. Cleveland for the manly and courageous attitude he has assumed. It has at last been decided where the much needed Government Printing Office is to be built. Gen. Mahonehad some land here on which he wanted the Printing Office to be built and he delayed legislation until the site he wanted was agreed on. Senatoa Jones has been steadily at work on his financial bill he has been in close consultation with Senator Teller through whom he hopes to con ciliate the silver men. Many stubborn and aggravating cas es of rheumatism that were believed to ba rncurable and accepted as lile lega cies, have yielded to Charnlerlain,s Pain Balm, much to the surprise and gratification of the sufferers. One ap plication will relieve the pain and suf fering and its con inueel use insures an ellectual cure. For sale by E. T. Whitehead & Co. HOW ABOUT IT, MR. GRANT? Wit. Evening Dipatch. One of the meanest things ever done in the history of the legi-lature wax the introduction of a bill by Mr. II. L. Grant, to repeal the act pon.ionins: the wounded Confederate soldiers of this State. Mr. Grant himself draws a pen- j sion from the Federal government, and ; tlieGoldstx.ro Aryu says he is "able bodied and un wounded." It is to 1 hoped that no such bill will le passed. The man who introduced it should be stigmatized by all geod people. The Wilmington Star says that a northern contemporary says. "Jeter Pritchard will le the first Republican from North Carolina to sit in the United States Senate for twenty-two years." The Star's comment says, "We don't think he will sit for twenty-two years, and will probably retire at the end of two." Rheumatism is primarily caused by aridity of the blood. Hood's Sarsapa- rilla purifies the blood, and thus cures the disease. Canton Corn well, foreman of the Gazette, Mlddletown, N. J., believes that Chamberlain' Cough Remedy should be in everv home. He used it for a cold and it effecteu a spoeedy cure He savs : "It is indeed a grand remedy I can recommend to all. I have also sed for whooping couch, with the best results." 25 and 50 cent bot tles for sale by E. T. Whitehead & Co. FOUND GREAT RELIEF FROM INSOMNIA AND OVERWORK BY THE USE OF IT WILL CURE YOU.
