Hqw the Protectionists rage oyer the President's able, manly, states manlike message! They foam and rave as if "Othello's occupation" was indeed I'gone" forever, j It is amus ing as well as instructive to read; the - Protective organs. There is such an innocency, 'such a confiding, unsus pecting ignorance in their revamping of the old. platitudes and threadbare arguments for the iniquitous Tariff. The I resolution, introduced . in the Virginia Legislature by a Mr. Wad dell embodies in tew words the lead ing abjections that are as vain and groundless as a mountain of soap suds1., j This apt reader , of the stale . and deceptive editorials of the regu lation organs of Protection, em bodies their combined wisdom in this tissue of fallacy and ignorance. His resolution begins by j making a false charge that the guardedvigor- - ous1, just message of Mr. Cleveland faVored free trade. That is palpably erroneous, for Mr. Cleveland proposes to tax a very great many foreign arti cles, and taxation is not in any sense free trade. What the President aims to effect is to relieve the necessaries of lite of a most iniquitous and unjust burden. He is for a fair and equita ble Tariff that will bring ill a sufii ' cient revenue to meet all of the legit imate proper demands of the Gov ernment when economically adminis- tered. That is all. There is no free trade about it. It is a Constitutional Tariff the President favors. A Con stitutional Tariff is one for revenue, is the decision of the Republican Su preme: .Court. It has declared that any other Tariff is "robbery." J The Waddell resolution declares that the effect of the reform recom mended and defended by the Presi dent M ill "break up manufacturing industries, paralyze the! business in terests of the country generally, and pauperize the laboring classes.". We 3o not believe for one j moment that it will do any of these things- It will ne t work this way as the past authorizes us to affirm. T 1. The greatest growth and pros perity of American ! manufactures were under the Low Tariff and when the average was not ' more than 18 perceit.- The present War Tariff averages nearly 46 percent. j 2. The business of the country has '. J 1 -j -LLs.r. L been as heaitby and satisfactory un- der a Tariff averaging but 18 per cent, as it ever was under a High Tariff 3. England has very greatly pros- pered under a very has outstripped all of countries. low tariff. It the Protection 1 I !L n. . . 4. Wages ui England are very much higher than they are in the Protection countries of Europe. So it is not a High Tariff that makes high wages, and a Low Tariff does not m ike low wages.' j . ! The Protective system of this country has destroyed the great American commerce and driven from the seas the once splendid merchant marine. What American commerce remains is carried to a very great ex tent in foreign bottoms. A change rs needed. The President offers an opportunity. But the Republicans have begun the old pry of "Wolf ! Wolf I !" It will fool no one but the ignorant. It wil telligent tax-payer. not fool the in- The monopolist laughs in his sleeve as he sets up the old cry. ; !. '. THE NAVY. Secretary Whitney,) so far as we are able to form an opinion, has made an efficient Secretary of the Navy. He has been j criticised, but so are all men criticised, and some times very unjustly Washington did not escape. In his report the Secretary shows how he has been engaged in creating in part a navy for the country. There has been tomer progress. But really there U but a ucgiuuiug. tue main worK is yet ahead it the United States are to own a navy equal to their requirements and necessities. Secre tary Whitney asks jfor appropria tions for the construction of more vessels, and we believe, it is the duty of the Congress to meet this de inandj It is stated that in six years more the wooden cruisers will have disappeared with the exception 6f four. But what are wooden cruisers worth in an age of iron clad steam rs, monitors and torpedo boats? This Secretary does not think high, ly of the monitors and torpedo boats He opposes repairing the single-turret monitors. They are not equal to the present demands as they could h aeily destroyed by a first-class new iron clad. It is a waste of money to repaif them. The country needs! a oavy and it is the duitj ofthe Con gressjto" make snch appropriations rom j year to year as shall secure this end. 1 McGowan's, S. C, brigade has been celebrating the anniversary of Gen.; Gregg's death. They also pro pose to aid in 'the erection of, the monument . to be erected at Rich mond, Va., in honor of A. P. Hill's memory. North Carolina ought to have a band in that monument for Hill commanded North Carolinians and held that they were the best sol diers in the Army of Northern Vir ginia, prove. This is a fact as we can There is not a negro in the Fiftieth Congress. The Republicans who love "the oolored man ; and brother" with suoh tenderness have not elected a solitary oolored man from a Northern District. O'Hara of the North Car olina Second, and Smalls, of the South Carolina Black District, have disappeared from the Halls of Con gress and the places that knew them wi 1 know them no more forever. I .. . i ; Hex Scars' Weatner. f The Star has j received Mansill's Al nanac and (Weather Forecasts for 1863, published by the Illinois weather prophet, at Rock Island. The spring he says will arrive early. The win tei nionths are summed up thus: Jaiuary is expected to average equal to or above the mean of the season; Fe bruary and Mar :h should be about similar in tempe rature, and April will in this way se the spring well advanced.. '. I -' -J . 1 It is anticipated by Mansill that May and Jane Will be moderately cool, even if the temperature is not a little lower than the average. The weather for J July is to be about the same, while Angus ; is rated to be low er thau the mean of the season. This is to continue through September and three weeks Jin October, when it; will become elevated, and range as high as 'the mean of the season, and con tinue during the month, f and prob ably this temperature will jbe kept up to the average of the season during November and part of December. To sum this up! we would have by! this calculation an unusua'ly,! early and long spring, with the usual storms, followed by a moderately cool sum mer ami autumn. .,,' Funeral oiih Luio Mr, flnske fhe funeral of the late Mrs. Kate Huske, wife of Mri Norwood Haske, take place at eleven o'clock this morning from St, John's Church. remains did not arrive here yes terday morning, as expected, being J - I.L 2 1 ' L i.

Papal Nomluaiiooi. The Rt. Rev. Leo Haid has been nominated Vicar Apostolic proper of When Bishop Nor North Carolina. throp was consecrated Bishop of Charleston, North Carolina was left without a Vicarj j Apostolic. Bishop Northrop then acted as administrator to North Carolina until a ! vicar apos tolic should be nominated. This nomination, the Charleston News and Courier says, has i been made by the Pope, whose choice, as has been men tioned, fell upon the Rt. Rev. Leo Haid. All will remember his conse cration as abbot of St. Mary's College, in North Carolina, on Thanksgiving Day at the Cathedral Chapel, by the Rt. Rev. H. P. Noxthrob in 1885. Abbot Leo Haid, previous to his coming South, was chaplain of St. Vincent's College, in Pennsylvania, the largest institution under the di rection onhe Benedictine Fathers. Here, also, he taught the higher branches of the English language. His merits, i piety and indomitable energy in administering the duties of his position won for him the high es teem of the members of his Order, and it was because the Benedictines wished to make St. Mary's College in North Carolina one of the first of the excellent institutions under the su- fervision of their Order that they se ected Abbot Haid. Oh the day of his arrival at St. Mary's College a complete change begm. The num ber of applicants was so large that a new and more capacious building had to be constructed. This was soon done, and while la. vsar ncn the num ber or students aid not exceed rorty. now it exceeds a hundred. All this was owing to the the Rev. Abbot, recting and his zeal and energy of His ability in di- prudence in acting him to the Pope has recommended and the position of vicar apostolic of North Carolina could not be filled by a more worthy person to succeed the admirable administrator the Rt.

The 'finest railway trains in tho world,' as they are described, will be gin rifnning on the 'Atlantic Coast Line between New York and Florida, about the 1st of January. These trains are cbmposea exclu sively of drawing-room cars, contain- W. ii ing library, reading ana smosing rooms, dining cars in' which meals will be served en route, and sleeping cars fitted with all comforts, conve- ed by means of vestibules that each train constitutes one continuous car forming a series of apartments, so that the traveller: may pass from one end of it to the other, precisely as he passes from one room to another in his own house. Exteriorly they will present the ap pearance of a block of artistically fin ished houses, while interiorly they will rival both in j beauty of decora tion, and in varied living conveni ences, an elaborately furnished and richly appointed city mansion. The vestibules are formed by en closing the platforms--they are as elegantly finished as any part of the car carpeted so as to entirely con ceal the points of connection between Lthe joined cars, and illuminated by from t.ViA nnilinca vnnaa raxra foil through cut-glass panelled doors, full upon Due steps. j Many of the advantages of the ves tibnled train are ohvinna Tt. roliairaa the traveller in passing from one part of the train to another from the an noyance of trie whirlwind on t.ho nlnt. form, caused by the rapid motion of the train, as also from the cold of open air in winter from the dust in summer, and from the storms at all seasons. It forms an easy connection with the dining-room, the smokincw room, and the library. The sched ules for these trains will be so ar ranged as to leave New York after breakfast, say about 9.30, and reach Florida the following day in time for dinner, being but one night on the Knock Dtvn f'oaoiry. ' Larry Williams, colored, was com mitted to jail yesterday by Justice Price in default of i bail in the 'sum: of $200 in two cases of assault and battery with a deadly weapon,, and $50 in a case of forcible trespass. ' . '. . The complainants in ! the cases are Button Ponton and wife Lizzie, also colored, Ponton is foreman on CoL Roger Moore's plantation, about four miles from the city, and Larry Wil liams was employed on the place as a laborer. , Ill-feeling had existed be tween the two men for some time past and a fight took place between them last Saturday evening, during which Ponton received a slight cut with a knife in one of his legs. As the story was " told in Court yester day, Wiliams, after the fight, about nine o'clock at night went to Pon ton's house with an axe and proceed ed to : clean out the establishment. It didn't app'ear clearly what became of Ponton, whether he SQught safety in flight up the chimney or down in the well.

The Supreme Court has rendered an important decision in regard to the local option law, in a case brought on appeal from the Superior Court for Wake county. A telegraphic dis-j patch to the Star, received last night, says: ' ! I The Supreme Court this afternoon decided the Gursch case. The decis ion is that th& sale of wine and beer is not allowable under the local op tion law and other like statutes. Jus tice Merrimon rendered the opinion, which says that spirituous liquors, under our statutes include lager beer and wine. The county authorities had no right to issue license to the defendant Gursch. This opinion over-t rules the decision rendered by Judge James H. Merrimon in this notable case last August.

Washington, Dec. 14. Mr. Hoar, from the committee on Privileges and Elections, presented tbe report in the West Virginia case. He said that the report was unani moua. The questions raised were very sim ple ones and easily comprehended. One of them had been long ago determined by the Senate, and he supposed that all Sena tors had bad occasion to reflect on the oth ers. Ia order that the Senator entitled to file seat might enter at once upon his du ties, he hoped there would be no objection to having the report disposed ot at once. ," i The report was read at length. It con cludes with two resolutions, one declaring that Daniel H. Lucas is not entitled to the seat, and the other declaring that Charles J. Faulkner has been duly elected Senator from the State of West Virginia for the term of six years, commencing 4th of March, 1887, and is entitled to a ssat in the Senate as such Senator; i The resolutions were agreed to viva voce, and the oath of office was thereupon ad ministered to Mr. Faulkner. , j ! Mr. Hoar then moved that Mr. Faulkner beiassigned to the Committees on Claims, District of Columbia, Mines and Min ing, and Pensions. 'Agreed to. ' Mr. Harries, from tbe Committee on Rules, reported an amendment to the Slat rule. That rule provides that where an ad verse report is made on a claim and the re port agreed to, it shall not be in ordar to take tbe papers ; from the file for the pur pose of referring them at a subsequent ses sion, unless the petition states that new evi dence has been discovered and the sub stance of it. The amendment is to add to the rule the clause, that j in cases where there ia no adverse report it shall be the duty of tbe Secretary of tbe Senate to transmit all such papers to tbe Committee in which such claims are pending. Agreed to - , " .-j ". Among the bills referred were the fol lowing: : i . By Mr George, to protect innocent pur chasers of patented : articles, making it a valid defence against actions for infringe ment that the article was bought for use or consumption, not for sale, and in good faith and in the usual course of trade; and providing tbat all patents shall be subject to purchase by the government for general use at reasonable valuation. Referred to tbe Committee on Patents, after an effort bad been made to have it sent to the Judi ciary Committee. j -; The Seriate then took up the bill intro duced by Mr. Morrill, to regulate immigra tion, and was addressed by that Senator io explanation and advocacy of the bill. Its main object, be said, was to have tbe char acter of foreign immigrants examined, first by U. S Consuls at the porta of departure, nstead of by State Commissioners at the ports of arrival. The foreign idea, he said, was that the United States invited free im migration, regardless of the character of the immigrants; but the American idea was tbat it never really offered an asylum to couvicls, to irreconcilable enemies of law and order, or to occupants of .the old world's insane asylums and workhouses. The doors weie left open only to persons of good moral character. The fact that nearly five million immigrants had come to this country within the last lea -ears proved that the question was one trf very great importance The great Americ&n principle of free admission of immigrants was not proposed to be aban doned; but that principle had always been ou eoridiiinn that immigrants should be of good moral character; and should be able to support themselves.- i j Al tbe conclusion of his remarks Mr. Morrill moved that his bill be referred to the Judiciary Committee, but Mr. Ed munds suggested that the subject more properly belonged to the Committee on Foreign Relations, and he moved that reference. Later, the motion was. agreed to, and then after ten minutes in executive session the Senate adjourned. ; Several hundred nominations were sent io i be Senate to-day of postmasters who were appointed during the recess of Con gress Among those ia the South were the following in Virginia: i Connelly T.

CHICAGO MARKET REVIEW. bower Prleea In Grain and Provisions wit to; Free Selling. Chicago, Dec. 14. Before business be gan on 'Change to-day. predictions of lower prices with further breaks in the grain markets were made. May wheat opened atJc lower than last night's close. There was good buying at this price, and May firmed up Jc in less than ten minutes. Buying was mostly by scal pers who sold short yesterday and took ad vantage of the early weakness to even up trades In corn, May opened at 53ic, with sales at the same time at 53c There was an unexpected good demand at 68e, and ten minutes later May was up to 5Sc. May pork opened unchanged. Heavy early pur chases of corn by two prominent local oper ators advanced May to 53Jc in the first half hour. A break at 10.30 landed May corn at 52ic. May pork broke from $15.25 to $15 05. An hour after the opening May sold at $15 and was weak at that. The break continued and May wheat went down to 8282ic. The lowest pricestbf the morning were reached by both corn and wheat on the: -break directly after 10,30. At that time May wheat got down to 8282i& There was so much excite ment and so much selling when prices got down to this figure that the crowd found itself short before it knew it. A few at tempts to even up made the crowd quite nervous and values reacted. Before noon May wheat was baek to 83, and for a long time it held moderately steady around 82 83c. May corn got down to 52c on the break and it reacted on covering by ner vous, shorts. The break was largely brought about by heavy sales by a Detroit plunger. Packers flooded the corn pit also, just be fore the break, and helped the decline for its influence on provisions. At 19 30 May corn was reasonably steady ardund 58c. but the crowd - was still ner vous. Provisions were featurelesr. Any little demand would firm prices up a trifle, but they would drop) off of themselves when, the demand was withdrawn. All the afternoon markets were higher, being largely influenced by corn, in which there was tree covering by shorts. - May oorn advanced to 580. I - THE PRESBYTERIANS.

The supervisors are to act as a canvaseing board, to receive returns from inspectors, and ascertain and declare the result of the election. Supervisors. jn Bpectore and poll clerks are to be divide i equally between tbe two principle political patties, Tbe measure is made applicable only to the States of South Carolina, Flori da, Mississippi and Louisiana It is elab orately drawn, and contains minute piovU sions governing the whole matter ot registration and conduct cf elections, together with penalties for election frauds! To an Associated Press reporter who asked for an explanation of the theory and purpose of tbe bill, Mr. Chandler said it was drawn under the clause of the Consti tution which provides that tbe times, places and manner of holding elections for Representatives in Congress shall be pre scribed in each State by the Legislature thereof, but Congress may by law make or alter such regulations. He said the cou stitutional power is ample either to press a general law for all States, one applicable to a number of States, or a special law in re spect to any particular State. In reply to a query as to his purpose in limiting the operations of the measure to the four States named, ho said : "It is my desire to se cure if possible tbe passage of a national election law in those States where ibwe 4 manifest j and avowed suppression of Re publican suffrage. In Louisiana tho Dem ocratic leaders declare their intention not to allow colored people to vote the Repub lican ticket, and have also asserted their in tention to settle this question without tbe slightest regard to northern sentiment on the subject. Hence, I think that both northern sentiment and interests should lead to the passage of laws to limit sup pression of suffrage to elections for State oflcers and give us free suffrage for Na tional officers. Mr. Chandler said his measure did not cover Presidential electors, for the leason that the Constitution gave no authority for it. He expressed the belief that the bill or a similar one.will pass the Senate, and honeys that it may pass the House. drowning" accident. A Ferry Boat on Nenae River Sunk Two tlvei Loit, Raleigh, N.
