He appealed to the ladies pres i;t to signify if in their opinion they , nsidered him a blackguard, but wa= no response from them. I ip Governor then said that Orr or any >'h I mMI who said he flaunted his pro iiiitv in public lied. ( '•>! Orr advanced to the Governor and iii hinghimby the arm wheeled him noiind «nd asked him if he was trying *" i i is.e a personal difficulty. Tillman - i''i he was not and Oil shook his finger hi ins fir and told him that he could not iotim t that he (Orr) lied without having 11 tin-own in his (Tillman's) teeth. H> tbld him tint her that Tillman had i of being "Almighty God gentle man 1 lie Govt i noi said so he had, aud Orr ! plied that He did not do himself cred it when He made you. He again caught hold of the Govern >r and asked him if he meant to intimate that he was a liar. The Governor sai l that if Orr did not criminate tin statement did not apply to him. By this time the crowd had become a raging mob. People ( limbed up on the stand. Mr.u pulled "IT theii coats, swore like troopci- and gai'neied around the two men It looked for all the world as i( blood was to be shed Col. Orr stood tcfthe rack ami told Tillman he lmd re peatedly used curse words on" th.- stand. The Governor said he ha 1 not done it but ome. and lie would leave it to ex 'Governoi Sheppard yyho, however, had lmtlrng to say. The excitement by this time was intense. Col.

On went back t > hi--eat, lemai king that Tillman musf let him aloe. The Gov eruor turned t" the ciowd a d said no living m to coui I buildliim. Afera >• >d deal of difficulty the crowd was quieted. Dull Time Figures. Hi' hard H. Edmonds, of Baltimore, gives in the August number of the Fwuut some account of the present resources aud recent progress of the South. The rec -0 d is one which every Southerner will i. a'l with pride aud every other Ameri •in should rejoice in. We can take only a lew of the most striking passages in that record. The South produced 533,- P 12,000 bushels of com iu 1891, a gain 01 .bout ?-"» per cent, over the production in The gain in cotton production w;u about the same, from ">,456,000 bales in 1881 to neaily 9,000.000 bales last year. The gain in railioads is even more remarkable. Ten years ago the South had 23,000 miles of railroad; now it has about 45.000. a gain of nearly 90 pei cent , and the increase in the number of passengers and thr amount of freight car ried ha? been enormous. Between 2'-1,- 000,00(1 and 24.000.000 ton* of coal were mined in the South in only about (5,(.'00,000 in lfHl. The value of expotfs from Southern ports has increased from #257.535,401 to £349.801.999, a gain of :W per cent., which is nearly five times the gain made at the oth*r ports of the United States. The Southern output of iron is nearly 325 pei cent, greater than in 18*1. The gain in manufacturing and banking aud all branches of business has been great. The assessed value of pioperty is nearly two billions greater than in l^wi Growing Cotton in Connecticut. IVI'NAW. CONN. —David Johnson, a spiuce old colored man of Ponifret street, who was at; a big Southern plantation "befo' de wall,'' is teaching hit. neigh bors that cotton may be grow n in Con net tii ut as su ( essfully as "w ay down South in Dixie." David is ganie.iei for Benjamin Grosvenor and has a little fanu of his own at Pomfvet Street. He had been trying vainly for several years to in ike people believe his cotton theory, and th s yeai has venlied it by gtowing cotton on his farm His crop is a small one. but it looks splendid. Johnson, who tended thousands of firres of cotton in thr Smith, says that hisPomfiet Street plants are quite a - luxuriant aud promis ing as any that are raised in Dixie. He adds that, while the Northern season is a short one. the soil here is riehei and the plant* thrive l etter than in the South.

Interesting Reading Of And For The Order. TJzuted States Senator Pefifer, of Kan sas, otythe Currency Question. Replying to your request under date of th f * sth instant in relation to supply ing the place of national band citcil lation, I hive to say that in my own judgment the b&st substitute is what the people of Kansas favored fouiteen years ago, namely. United tes notes, commonly called gi. enbacks; for as you I kuow, national b« :k notes" aie redcem | able in I'nited ! would be well to abolish the whole sys j tem of bank note i=sues No banking ! institution should be permitted t » issue anything whi' h is *o be used legal ! tender money uuh-s. th n issue is support | ed by the pawei, and the material used, whatever it may be. should not be re deemable in anything. I* ought to go out to the people as money, fullfledged, ready for dutv. without any weight or impediment or conditions of any sort, what ver. Wh it we use .us money should be absolutely fii t fr mall conditions, so that there could be no "runs" on banks in time of stringency, and no pauics be cause tie >tors are un ible to obtain iegal teudei money I b -li ve that the time has come t:> nationalize our money. We took one long step in that direction when we adopted out national banking sys tem We taxed State bank notes out of existence, substituted a nationa l cuirency for a purely lo al currency, aud it was only a shoii time altci embarking in this oew enti i piise until we discovered that the bankers of the country were masters of the fiuain i d situation. \Ve hud that instead of seiving the peopl ; they served themselves. In there were - ©WO,OOO of bank notes tin illation Since that time about .*210.0 0.000 of it has been retiied. nol b- viuse the people did not need the money, but because the banks realized api 'lit from the sale of their bond at p e.mium. the bonds that they had dtp •.>i'• • d i- se« urity for (iicu lation . Out e\p> rieiue and that of otliei nations has been that banking corpora tions are private -chine- for nrorit to ind vidual persons, :,nd out observation ha a taught us that there is only one safe way to avoid the daugcis to which that suit of financial management subject us; that is for the nation itself to prepare its own money, every do'lai of it. issu ■it to the people directly though government agencies, wholly without the use and in fervent ion of banking corporations or other private agencies. You under-tand from the foregoing that I would ii -t only -übstitute United States notes. ~| tteasury notes, if you choose, for national bank notes as they are being retired, but 1 would substitute that sort of money for a'l bauk issues; aud I would do even more than that; I would not make money out of a promise to pay; that i- to say. I would not wiite out a ptonii -v to pay money and call that promise money; but I would use a piece of paper |u-t as we at.e now using a piece of gold or a piece of silver, and make that money, providing in the law what its functions shall be. That puts the influence, the credit, aud the power of all the people behind the money. Then we will have gold and silver and paper at par, one with the other; aud that, if we will reduce rates of interest down to the level of profit on labor, so that men can make as much mon?y farming or blucksmithing ot carpentering as they can by lending money, will give us a safe currency, a .sound financial system, and no more money panics. I. L. POLK ON THE DOLLAR. I believe that both of the parties are afiaid of Wall street. They are not afraid of the people. They say to me, "Don't you know you can buy more with a dollar than \>u over could in the his tory of our e Mintry?'' That may be true; but suppose you owed ;fl.oi'o.
