Tut Mill bill is tho chief national
Ishue between the democratic and the
republican parties, and therefore
should be explained to the people,
ihe democratic national conven
tion Las endorsed it, and the
democratic House of Representatives
passed it: but the rtpublicau
national convention has denounced
i: and the republican niembeis of the
House, except three, all voted against
it. The two parties have the. fore
joiued issue on this bill and have
appealed to the people to decide at
the election which is right. It is a
bill to reduce taxation and revise Hie
pieseut unjust tariff laws, and is
caiied the Mills bill because its author
is Congressman Mills of Texas. The
reduction of taxes by this bill would
amount to about $80,000,000 a year,
stn average of $1.33 for every man, ;
woman and child in the United States:
that is, if the republican Senate
would pass this bill every man, wo
mau and child on an average would
hereafter pay $1 33 a year less taxes
Is this not worth I
saviug? Aud yet John Nichols voted
against, it !
The Mills bill abolishes altogether
the tax on tobacco, so that our farm
ers could sell their tobacco without
paying any tax just tUa same as they
tell their corn, cotton and wheat.
And yet John Nichols and the repub
licans iu Congress voted against this!
The Mills bill reduces the tariff
tax on all the iiecessui ies of life, so
that poor men can have them cheaper.
For example, it abolishes altogether
the tariff tax on salt, which is now
40 per cent. It reduces the taiiff
on sngar 10 per cent., on molasses
V2 per cent., ou medicines 18 per
jont, ou window-glass 23 per cent,
ou starch 53 per cent., on blankets
30 per cent, on farming tools 13 per
Sent, on crockery 20 per cent, ou
shoes 15 per cent, on wool hats 23
ftar cent, on carpets 17 per ceut, on
Cotton hosiery 15 per cent, &c , &c.
These are only a few iustances of the
tariff reduction that are made by this
Bill,- .Inch the republican party is
Opposing. Ought not the tax-payers
to oppose the republican party 1 If
the tax payers of this district are iu
favor of these reductions of the tariff,
then they cannot vote for Nichols

received a severe rebuke from a prom-

few days ago. The readers of the
Record will remember that Dockery
! in his speech at this place stated that
Mrs. Cleveland had kissed (lo use his
own words) "a negro wench". It
seems that be repeats this slander
wherever he speaks. One day last
week he and Mr. W. S. O'B Robin
sou (a leading republican from Golds
boro') made speeches at Burgaw, in
Pender county. Dockery spoke first
and again repeated his lie about Mrs.
Cleveland, but Mr. Robinson, who is
a decent man, in his speech had the
honesty and true manhood to state
that he did not believe this slander
on Mrs. Cleveland ! Nor does Dock
ery believe it, aud he only repeats his
base slander on "the first lady in the
laud" in order to excite the laughter
of his negio hearers. How can any

dirty demagogue as Dockery ?
A Noted Murderer Hanged.
St. Louis, Mo., August 10. From
the same scaffold, at the same mo
ment 9 :01 this morning Henrv
Landgrof and Hugh M. Brooks, alias
Maxwell, were swung into eternity.
The necks of both men were broken.
The clime for which Maxwell finally
suffered death . was one of peculiar
atrocity. Maxwell met his victim
Prellev, a young solicitor of Cheshiere,
Koglaud, on the steamer Ceptalonia
in r eoruary looo, aud when they sep
arated at iNew lork me
new x oik me two men
agreed to meet at St. Louis. Ou the
3rd of April they met at the Southern
hotel and occupied the same room.
They appeared together in friendly
intercourse for three days when Pi eller
Ou the following day Maxwell
bought a ticket for San Francisco aud
had all his baggage checked to that
city except one trunk, accounting in
the meantime for the absence of bU
friond by saying that he had gone in
to the country ou busiuess. Nine
days later a horrible stench attracted
attention to tho trunk left by Max
well, and upon investigation the rap
idly decomposing body of Preller was
found inside of it Suspicion at once
pointed to Maxwell, and he was track
ed to San Francisco, and from there
to Aukland, New Zealand, where he
was arrested aud sent back to St Louis.
He was placed on trial May 10, 1886,
and on June 5th, the jury returned a
verdict finding him guilty of Murder
in the first degree. The ease was ap
pealed in October, aud argued before
the Supreme court in April 1887, but
the appeal was denied and Maxwell
was sentenced to be bauged Augubt
28, 1887. Au appeal was then taken
to the United States Supreme court,
but without avail and on June 4, last,
the Supreme Court of Missouri set
August 10th, 1888, as the day of exe
cution. MaxweU'6 defense was that
he attempted to doctor Preller foV an
incurable disease and gave him an over
dose of chloroform, which resulted in
death. Then in fear and distraction
he placed tlje body iu the trunk, took
some $600 of Preller's monej and fled
the country. All efforts made at va
rious times in his behalf by the Brit
ish government, of which country he
was a native, were unavailing.
Wilmington Messenger: A dis
tressing accident occurred Saturday
morning last at Kaintuck, near Point
Caswell, in Pender county, by which
tho eleven year old daughter of Mr.
James J. Croom came to her death in
a most shocking manner. She was
climbing up a rail which was leaning
against a tree wheu it turned, precipi
tating her to the stubble below. Be
neath her were some stubs of hickory
uuBu.es wuicn uad ueen cut with a
hook knife for hoop poles, and iu her
fall she was impaled ou one of them.
It entered near her hip and penetra
ted entirely through her body, coming
out at her side; Although being
promptly extricated from her terribie
position, she died within thirty min
utet attar the horrible accident.

The other crank mobt frequently
encountered at Headquarters is the
man who wants to make speeches.
No one has ever heard of him prob

of his birth place. This, however,
does not deter him from writiug to
the Committee seventeen pages of
foolscap interlined and marked "con

stump Alaska, or to look after the un
certain Nutmegsin Connecticut, or to
rush into the face of Jeisey lightning,
possibly eveu to make stump speech

the Empire State to the Democracy.
This customer to be sure, is a Patriot,
with an exceedingly large P. He nays
as much himself, but like many of that,

pecuniary demands of a labor of love.
He would like the Committee to ad
vance him say a few hundred dollars
for traveling expenses and incidentals;
He will try not to make any further
requisitions upon them, though if
they should think his services worth
$50 or $60 a week, a mere bagatelle
to what he might pick up by remain
ing at home he of course might bring
himself to the point of accepting it
iu the same spirit that a public officer
draws his salarv.

Returning to Indiana, the feeling
at Headquarters is that Ex-Governor
Porter put his party in the worst pos
sible position by his peculiar tactics
of flirting with the Convention, it
was generally conceded that his per
sonal popularity would give a great
boost to Harrison. The inside his
tory of it all is as plain as a pike
staff. Por ter was a warm Orosham
man aud had nothing in common with
the. New-Dudley -ring which . thrust
the nomination of Harrison upon the
party. This is his revenge. Even

than "any fiction that has ever been

of the story might, after Hood, be
called the "Song of the Shirt". I am

The Scott Part in Sensation.
We announced two or three weeks
ago that the mysterious man, who
had beeu arrested in Raleigh as Scot t
Partin, had been released as it was
proved that he was an Irishman, uam-
i ed Porter. After remaining at lwal-
eigh for sometime after his release he
showed symptoms of insanity, and a
few days ago suddonly rushed from
the house where lid was staying and
disappeared.. Eveu after his release
some persons continued to think lb-it
he was Scott Pui tiu, but it seems that
he was certainly au Irishmau, for his
case has attracted much attention iu
Ireland, as wilt be seen from the fol
lowing recent cablegram to the New
Lokpos, Aug. 12. It is probable

Thirteen years ago ' Scott Partia,
living near Rakigiii, murdered his wife
and child. The police nver caught
him. A few days ago a letter was
received from Porter by his sinter in
Queeustown, stating that he was un

being Partin. the murderer. Photo
giapbs of Partin and Poiter sent to
Queeustown showed a most r mark

To make the cms.; more extraordinary,

Consul Piatt-says that there is no
doubt that the - writing is the same
writing as that of the man now in
prison at Raleigh. The Consel has
verified every, statement written by
Porter since his arrest to the British
Minister at Washington. Iu 1887
Porter ceased writing to friends iu
Ireland, and his relatives believed him
dead. He has Tbeu advertised for in
vain as heir tp land and money. The
letter to his sister ''announcing his ar
rest was" accompanied by 7a photo
graph, aud' his sister with other peo
pie who knew Porter, express no doubt
of his identity.";--The sister explains
that the loss of -his middle fi tiger on
one hand can easily be verified by the
records of the War Department. Bo
fore he joiued the Uuited States Army
he worked in Charles Blood's piano
factory, at Halifax.
The case has aroused unusual inter
est in the south of Ireland, aud many
prominent people are interested in
securing Porter's release.
