The Plumed Knight of the Mulli

Wednesday and it must be 'confess-
ed to a large crowd. But he got
somewhat mixed on local issues and
closed abruptly. He was
hissed as he left the hall.
- It is gravely stated that Mr. C. M.
Jordan says that when, he was Pres
ident of the Third National Bank he
often signed his nam as; many as
15,000 times in one. day. To do this
Mr. Jordan must have worked 10
hours a day and worked rapidly and
steadily all of that time. There
isn't a man living to-day and he
never has lived, who can write his
signature 10,000 times in ten hours
of steady work. Try it for one hour
and vou will believe us.
A gigantic scheme, whereby the
Republicans- proposed to colonize
New York, has just been discover"
ed. Matt Quay thinks Pennsylvania
can spare 50,000 for New York, which
is as much as to say and admit
that the outlook now is for 50,000
majority forCleveland in that State.
But it would be funny if this fifty
thousand should prove not enough
and if the withdrawal of that num
ber from Pennsylvania should give
that State to the Democrats also.
We clip from yesterday's New
York Star the folio wingreport of one
$10,000 bet which was made in that
city on Tuesday night and the ef
forts of another of like amount
which could find no takers:
Colonel Thomas Swords, sergeant-at-armsofthe
Committee, who tried to bluff sup
porters of Cleveland and Thurman
at the Hoffman House Tuesday
night with an uncertified check for
$10,000, strolled into the same resort
again last night. , The Colonel again
announced his desire to stake that
amount on Harrison. David Gid
eon, the well known supporting
man, saia ne coum uui itbu
a pudding pass" without tasting it.
Very quicKly two crisp $ouu urns
were placea in tfiiiy iawaras
hands. This was forfeit money, the
agreement being that the remaind
er of the wager should - be paid to
night between 9 and 10 o'clock.
Just after Colonel Swords depart
ed, Patrick Duffy of New Orleans
offered to a risk another $10,000 on
Cleveland. Though he flourished
ten one-thousand-dollar bills for a
half hour he could get no takers,
Mr. Gideon, who deftly cooled
Colonel Swords' betting ardor, is an
ex -member of the Assembly. He is
now actively engaged in the book
making business, and has been as
sociated with the firm of Daly & Co.
Mr. Gideon is wealthy and owns the
famous race horses French .Park,
Radiant, Groomsman and Grena

Some people are just as cross as a

The Editor spent yesterday in
Chatham' county. We found poli
tics warm in that section. The
Chathamites claim that their county
is for Cleveland and Fowle, without
doubt or surmise,and that by alarge
majority. If we recollect rightly
there was some 800 majority for
Cleveland there in 1884. . This was a
pheuominally larg majority but our
friends there say that they hope to
do at least as well this year. There
have been a considerable number of
white Republicans in this county
but these are rapidly leaving the
sinking ship. Judge Fowle's speech
at Siler City seemed to turn many of
these from the error of their ways.
Col. Waddell spoke in Pittsboro one
day recently and his effort was a
magnificent one. A gentleman who
was present and heard his speech
says that a number Of white Repub
licans were present and that he
knows of four of these, who had not
voted for a Democratic President
since the war, who stated plainly
that Col. Waddell's talk had con
verted them and , that they would
vote for Cleveland and. Fowle this
Descended From the Croatans.
The Scuffletown section of Robe
son county is the home of a large
number of descendants of the once
famous and mush feared tribe of
Croatan Indians. It was there that
the remnants of the tribe found a
home and where they have increased
and multiplied. There is. a mixture
of some white blood in the race but
no negro blood. They hold them
selves well aloof from the African
race. Henry Berry Lowrey, the out
lawed leader of the famous "Swamp
Angels," was of this .tribe, as were
also all of his followers. There are
about two hundred males in the
communityand they are all voters
and they WW ftll tc n Ul&u, vote the
Democratic ticket this Fall. They
say that the Democrats have been
very kind to them and that they can
see that their interest is indissolubly
associated with tle political ascen
dancy of the white race in North
Carolina. They, are now a sbber,
steady, industrious people. They
have their own schools, secured to
them four years ago by legislative
enactment, through the efforts of
Hamilton McMillan, Esq., member
pf the Iqwer hquse, and none but
their qwn children are allowed to J
attend these schools. .
Lost hj Fire,
We are sorry to hear of the loss
sustained by Col. L. Cf Jones, Su

of his carriage house, corn crib, &c,
with the'ir contents, at Jonesboro

includes carriage, buggy, harness,

loss is nearly $1,000 and we are sorry
to learn that there was no insurance.
It is understood that the fire occur

we were standing on the depot plat

The indications are for a large and

House to-night, at the rendition of
"The Black Hussar." The company
come here well heralded and 'there
is no doubt as to the merits of the
entertainment. The Richmond and
Petersburg papers, attest this fact.
They have an excellent orchestra
and there are said to be 40 artists,
all good performers, in the troupe.
They play here a short season only,
two nights and a matinee, and ve
think that they may safely count on
large houses caeh time. To-night it
is the 4Black Hussar." to-morrow
afternoon it will be "The Queen's

night it will be "Erminie." If we
