" -KotfreJis Tery much pleased to note the improvements in the way of bouseouilding and street making in and around the city. I took a stroll all alone not tong since and saw that the homes of our banker, D !jj 'Ooltrane, and our hard ware nftra. J C "Wadsworth, had been completed. They show up to a good advantage and are of the model kind. The next new build- ins that came to my view was the house of Mr. D II Hoover, which is in the hands of the carpenters. J t will be quite a handsome structure. As my legs were stiff from the want lot exercise, and as things grew more interesting, I meandered through the new street that runs from nortn Main to Cannons factory. It will not be amiss to Btate that the au thoritiea did a good job when they opened up this street that is not only a necessary convenience, bv( a very jggtty drive. At the factory 1 found several new buildings eoing up. From this clattering, hustling and buzzing enterprise I went over to the CabarruJ mills, where Mr. Whit Burkbead was LoverseeiDp large force of bands, A TnolriTicr vaao f Via 1ia.1a in li i ground io put the fou idation of the new addition to 46 old mill in We Tejt.fruck the Fenix Flour fSTTSfTand it was a sight to see how busy everybody was and how fat Mr Crowell's hogs are and what a clever, courteous and imposing bookkeeper he has.

It is a Ihanfteme building and will soon be ready for occupation. Here I had to take a sneak on account .of rain, but the.game will be continued when rain drops fall gentlier and the clouda are not so threatening. I congratulate Concord and her en terprising citizens in their move in this direction. It has been said thet we have more pretty residences and that our little city had the steadiest growth and more vim and push and the most cordial citizen' of any town in the State, considers irg our population and railroad ins conveniences. Ir. W H Lilly is also erectixg a substantial office building in his yard. The man that mixed the mud had his morter box arranged very conveniently on the sidewalk. A pair young lady and gentleman, of the star-gazing kind were walking down that street, and being so ab- sorded in conversation they stum bled agaisnt the box, fell in the mortar, and had it not been for the timely aid of one of my friends who was near by, something serious might have resulted. As it was, a air of white ducks were spoiled nd a thia slipper and two fury white bands and a fan were messed op with line and sand. Korner regrets to see the basket picnic season nearing and end, but with the campaign j and the county fair in sight, he may feast again. So my mind is easy over the morsel gatherings.

Upon motion the convention pro ceeded to the nomination of candi dates, beginning with the Kepresen- ratiye ; and after one ballot, Mr. Ed, Henderson, of No. 2, stated that No. 2 delegation could not cast its vote for a candidate unless he was for Jar vis as Ransom's successor. This brought forth considerable discus sion, entered into by Messrs. Means, U G Montgomery, and Z A Morris. A reconsideration of the vote just taken was carried unanimously' tgJ introduce resolutions of instructions for United States Senators, Col. Paul Means introduced the following resolutions The Democrats of Cabarrus coun ty, in convention assembled, do re solve: , 1. That we favor the election of United States Senators by the people, as Representatives in Congress are now elected. 2. That we hereby request eur Senators and Representatives in Congress, for North Carolina, when Congress shall next ass mble, to take Immediate action, on what has already been done by the House of Representatives in this direction, to; have the Constitution of the United States amended so that United States Senators shall be elected by the people. 3, That a copy of this resolution and of the two foregoing resolutions be, at once, sent to our two Senators and Democratic representatives in Congress by the secretary of this convention. 4. That we hereby instruct Mr. T J Jerome and Mr. H S Paryear, who willjbe, respectively, our Senator and Representative in the next General Assembly of North Carolina, to take such action in that Legislature, for an "application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States" to Congress, or by instruction and request, respectively, to our Senators and Democratic Representatives in Congress, as will most speedily tend to affect the election of United States Senators by the people. 5. That we instruct oar said Sen ator and Representative in the next General Assembly of this State to attend every Democratic caucus of that body, held to nominate a can- dicate for United States Senator, and, in such caucas, to vote, on each and every ballot, for Hon.

After considerable discussion, the vote was first taken on the substi tute, which received only one vote then the original resolution was carried by a unanimous vote on motion of Mr. Morris. ,The dis. enssion, while very animated, was inthebe8tof feeling, and the out come is satisfactory to all Demo crats. Ballot for;Representative was then taken with this result : H. S Pur jear, 412-5; ODBarringer l$8-5 and John S Tnrnnr t. fin .

Mr. James C Gibson was nomi nated, by acclamation, for Clerk Snperior Court. ! Mr. L M Morrison was nominated by acclamation, for Sheriff. Mr. Jno. K Patterson wes norni nated, by acclamation, for Register of Deeds. When the chairman called for the ballot for County Treasurer, Mr. A E Lentz, one of the candidates before? the primaries, recognizing his de-' feat, arose and moved that the nomi nation of Mr. Jno. A Chne be made by acelamation. This brought down the house in applause. Mr. Lentz aaid he did all he could to beat Mr. Cline for the nomination aud now he would do all he could to help Mr. Clme win in November. That he (Lentz) was a Democrat and is also trom now on. A rising vote of thanks to Mr. Lentz for hi3 loyalty was taken with a vim. Just as thevote began on cotton weigher and the secretaries were making hair-splitting calculations among. fractions, Mr. Caldwell, not being a delegate, asked to make a etatemeil tioW'he was allowed the privilege. He said he knew that Mr. Archibald had beat him about one vote and to save time he (Caldwell) nominated Mr. F A Archibald for Cotton Weigher.

N Brown, in an old time, clear cut Democratic spirit, made a speech. He said he thanked the convention for the honor, but on acs count of age, he must decline. He wanted the convention to know that he was a Democrat ever since he was a boy, had voted the Democratic ticket for 50 years and hoped to vote it l or 50 more years. Mr. Chas, A Sherwood was unanimously nomi nated for Coroner. On motiOD, committees escorted Messrs. II S Pnryear, T J Jerome and Jno. S Henderson into the con vention. The executive committees of the townships met and elected a County Execotive Committe. It was as foK lows ; D P Dayvault, chairman; G K Ritchie, W G Newell, M M Morri son, C D Barringer. After motion to adjourn, the peo pie remained seated and listened at' tentively to speeches by Hons. H S Pnryear, T J Jerome and John S Henderson. Press time prevents a report of the speeches. The Democratic platform has not budged. Get on it and be saved. Some people are liable to discover before long that a majoritv of Ca barrus Democrats are not fools.

There is a distinct difference be tween Democracy and Populism on the silvei question, as well as on all other questions. And don't von forget it. There is only one Democrat in the Pennsylvania Senafe. This is one case in which a little ".eayen cannot leaven the whole lump. The lump is too tough. Democratic clubs have been or ganized pretty generally all over the State. Que at Monroe and one at McAddensville were organized Thursday night.

The crank shaft that works the piston rod in the cylinder broke and by doing bo, caused a general rupture in the machinery in the engine room, Both cylinder heads blew out, break ing bolts, cogs wheels, pins and tears ing things to pieces in general. It waa almost a miracle that no one was hurt. .Engineer Jiiackwel der waa working with the machinery when the blow-out occurred, but escaped unhurt. He sars there was a scatteration of things, and pieces of machinery whistling all aroand him. The breaking np of the machinery in the engine room did not effect any of the working machinery in the mills, only that it will be impossible to repair damages within a week. The mills will stand idle and the operatives will enjoy a recess, even though an accident brought about the sudden and unexpected stop.
