SENATOR VANCE ANNOUNCES HIS OP POSITION TO MR SIMMONS' CON FIRMATION AND GIVES HIS REASONS THERE—«JE PAYS His RESPECTS TO CERTAIN ANONYMOUS SCRIBBLERS. [Ashville Citizen.J Tamp* t*uy Motel. } Tampa, Fla., Feb. 5, ISO 4. Editor The Vitizen :—ln answer to your letter of the Ist I have this io say : You know that in all transactions connected with the executive s* ssion of the Senate, including what is said and clone in committee, my moutti is closed. 1 am at liberty, therefore only to speak to you about my ov, a attitude toward Mr. S.mmons, what has not been done etc., but not as to what, has been done or prooably wLI be done. I want to say, fi r st, that for myself and on my own authority I have filed no charge* against Simmons. Aside from those which may have been filed bv others, my attitude toward him is one of opposition, fur the reason that 7 , as chairman of the Democratic coins mittee of North Carvlina, lie c.me to Washington and interfered in oppo sition to my recommendation for ap pointments under the Government. Knowing that Mr. Hansom and I had agreed that primarily I should recorr mend all appointments in the »vest. whilst Gen. Ransom did the same in the east and knowing that I had rec ommended Mr. G*dger for collector in my own district and that Gen. Han som opposed Mr. Gudgeron personal rreunils and favored Mr. Elias, he 0 oeryerted misused the power intrust.. Ed to him by the Democracy of Nurm Carolina by urging and securing the appointment of Mr Elias over Gu i ger. He also opposed my recom men dation of Mr. Ilale for a foreign ap pointment. which was virtually se cured and was higher in grade than any given the state. Now, if he thought proper to vol unteer his interference wh c he 1 d no right or au hority to do so, he should not object to the exercise of an undoubted right bv a Senator in ! the selection of nppoin ineiits, be- : stowed upon him by the constitution j To save trouble to the anonymous i scribblers who are constantly slan dering me in this regard and who re port him as speaking of himself as Simmons and the Democratic party," 1 announce, once for all. that I resent not only Simmons' interference with mv rights as a Senator, but the insult injr and defiant tone assumed bv both P • him and them. I shall oppose Mr. Simmons' confirmation on personal as well as public grounds—grounds connected with his unfitness to hold the position for which he has been appointed. My health is improving rapidly in this fine climate, and I hope soon be in my seat in the Senate. • Ver}* truly yo-rs, Z. B. VANCE. SIMMONS "KEPY. MR. SIMMONS REPLIES TO SENATOR VANCE'S LETTER GIVING HIS REASONS FOR OPPOSING TIIE FARMER'S CONFIMATION, [Special to the Messenger.] Raleigh. Feb.' 10.—Collector Mm mons will to morrow publish tue fol lowing letter: "Senator Vance in a t > the Ashville Cicizeo, dated February 1894. and published in your i**ue of yesterday, declared himself oi»p«>ed to mv confirmation f T the altered reason that, as chairman-of tlu>.Dem ocratic- Kxective commit ee of this I State. I went to Washington .tad -PROVE ALL THINGS. AND HOLD FAST TO THAT WHICH IS GOOD. nterfered wilb and d ;feated the ap pointment of Mr. Hale to a high grade foreign posi»ioa and of Mr. Gudger for collector of internal revenue and i secured the appointment in bia Bt*»ad ot Mr. Eiia-j, wlioin lie antagonized. "In view cf this specific and public statement by the Senator, of the grounds of his opposition by my con firmation. I am constrained to believe it prop.-r f,r me to make a statement of my connection with the appoint ments referred to by him, that those interested may judge whether 1 have transcended my rights on the one ( hand or usurped the prerogative ol U»e senator on the oilier. Both as a citizen and as chairman of the l'eii]» acratic Executive committee, 1 was, on account of their acknowledged fit ness and eminent party services, ar dently in favor of the appointment of Mr. Glenn for attorney of the Wes ! tern district and of Messrs Jernigan, Robbius and Henry for the be-jt ob tainable positions in the foreign I vices of the Government. Some of these gentlemen appealed to me in very urgent terms to go to Washing ton iu their behalf. I cheerfully yielded to their solicitations in this respect, because 1 thought they des ! erved the recognition they sought as a reward tor honorihie and faithful public services, and I felt that they had the right lo call upon me as the chairman *ot the Executive committee jwf their party to assist .Ihem to that end to such extent as I might be able. '•lt was opposed as was also Sen*- j atore Vance, to Mr. Eli as for district attorney. But I was not opposed to Mr. Gudger ot collector. I had taken no part in the contest for the latter position and the appointment of Mr. Gudge. would have been entirely i satisfactory to inc. Mr. Hale had requested me to en dorse him for the position of Consu 1 ! Gene.al to London, a position which pays about £50,0110 per annum, I am | informed, and I had not complied with his request, because I did not think him entitled to absorb all the patronage in this service winch mighl be accorded to North Ga'ro.ina. "This was the position which I ocs cupied with reference to these gentle : men when i called upon Mr. Cleve : laud and the Assistant Secretary of State, lion. Josiah Quincy. 1 had had no communication with Senator Hansom concerning the appointment of either Mr. Gudger or Mr. Hale and did not then know his attitude toward them, nor towards Mr. Elias, except that he was opposed to him for dis trict attorney. "When I went to the White House I did not expect to allude to the con test over the electorship. I went , simply to advocate Mr. Glenn and the other gentlemen Erst named and did so with . warmth and ardor. I spoke of Mr. Glenn's opponent, Mr. Elias, in,such high terms of pra>se as 1 thought then and n;»w think him entitled to receive. When Mr. Gud ger was mention 1 spoke of him in equally as high terms of praise, I iiecaine sat.Stied however before the ; interview closed that the President would appoint Mr. Eiias either dis** trict attorney or collector, and in response to a question I expressed tbe opinion that thee was a more general crvstaliza ion of sentiments o •* in favor ot Mr. Glenn fur district at torney than there was for Mr tor collector, there being at that time "l did not advocate the appoint" mer. t Mr. Kiias. nor oppose the ap i•. iuiuicn' of Mr. Gudges for collec tor. lii all 1 dirt and said in this ifiM'vr I *a-actuated. b\ no thought of purpose ««f antagonism to Senator Vntu-e » r favoritism '*» >onato- Ran*. m in. *»»r I liien regarded bo h «them a- th \ U'lends. bn. 1 was moved and influenced purely aud simply by what I thought to be my duty to the party in * 're interest of harmony and right. "With reference to Mr. Hale and his aspira'ions for a high grade for eign appointment. I will say general ly and briefly that I haye never advo cated tii Hl lor any position and I have, in the exercise of my right of personal opi* toil, it ali times denied his claim to precedent! oyer {ill other North Carolinians in the distribution of the foreign patronage of the Gov ernment During mv conference with the President—l have had but one wit'i - itn since the election— the claims of Messrs. Jerni»an, Rob bins and Henry were discussed, but nothing was said about Mr. Hale. "During my stay in Washingtou on this visit I c died upon Assistant Secretary Quiney twice, once ou my own accord, and the second time at hia suggestion. On the occasion of my first visit, made solely lor the pur pose of urging the recognition of Messrs Jernigau, Kobbina and Henry I was told by him that it had been suggested and claimed that Mr. liale ought lo have the next best place in the foreign service given to North Carolina. From this claim I dissent ed, and expressed the opinion that he was not entitled to precedent over such gentlemen ?\s Messrs Kobbins, Jernigan an:! Henry, and that it would oe unjust to set aside the men who had borne the heat and burden of the fight just ended in victory, for quite a number of cahidates for the latter piace, and for this reason I ex pressed the belief that there would be. greater disappointment in the paity it Mr. Glenn failed to receive tLe pointment of district attorney than ' they would be if Mr. Gudger vas not appointed collector. Mr, Hale. I knew of nothing in his political career which entitled him to such paramout consideration and I believed and said if he appointed this gcntlemau it would create great dis> appointment in the party. "In taking this position I acted, from a sense of duly to the party, and without feelings personal to ang one. "This is the sum of the facts of my socalied interference with these appointments. •\Seiiatoj Vance says my tone has been detiant and insu.ling to him. He 1 has been misinformed. "I have neither privately nor pub licy given forth any utterance which could make me obnoxious to this charge. I have no d&sire to mak an issue with Senator Vance regarding i my rights to ezpress an opinion to t he president, whether in advocacy or opposition to the claims of an aspi rant fiom the State for aFtderal |,o> sition requiring Senatorial confirma tion. That is not the issue made by the facts in that ca»e, but I .10 ins»s*i and maintain that 1 had a perfect rii£lit in Uomg so. But * I certainly did not in either usurp or inrode the rights »;f the Senators from this Slate.' v JL'DGK WlliriKEli IN -LITTLE ALKX.'

Sweet 100 V*. sweet speech, sweet smiles, swreet voloc, love ly eyes, ft comely head, a urv; all these are gitts and grace® to be ardently desired. Vet there is one gift that surpasses all the rest. At the. Roynl no*\demy, London, there arc the portraits of three women, Lady Ham ilton. Mrs. Jordan and Sophie ArnoulA. The lovely Emma is a type of rustlo beauty at its best—not refined—likel? to become coarse. Mrs. Jordan showa, behind a eharming face, intellect, wit, cleverness and a pen tie heart, Spphfe A mould shows greater wit, preatef cleverness and a heart not so gentle, perhaps. On each of the faces there is in addition, unmistak ably. the same quality, rare and won derful. It is the quality for which there la no other word than witchery. There were all three witches but tu» stead of being- burned at the stake they set lire to every masculine heart that approached them. And the nobla procession of fair women—Delilah, BathshebfU, and her contemporary, Helen of Troy; Aspasia. Diana de Poictiers, Marjp, queen of bootts; »:ll Qwynne—they were nil witches, and they all possessed tho wonderful, indescribable look vrhioh proclaimed their mysterious power of fascination. Many there arc who hnve this fairies' pi ft in a greater or lok9 degree. Providentially, few know their own power, and are content to bewitch one man alone out of ail the earth. And what is the Ferret of this »fMt? It is certainly not faultless beauty, for it is a perfectly comprehensible para* tlox that as a rule the women who have been noted for the fascination of their beauty were not pretty women at nil. Anne IJoieyn had many plastio defects. The duchess of Flurjrnndy, who lit up in the old agfe of Louis XIV. the court of Versailles and nentralirM the morose inflnenee of Mme. da Main tenon. had » goitrous neck j*nd decayed front teeth, yet she was proclaimed a beaut/. de Valoia with whom most of the prominent wrnneii men of her day were »t some tima o» another desperately in love, had he*vy> cheeks, too prominent ey**. and a thick, hanjrinpr under lip.
