An o'er cast sLy ! The storm
iio th Irew !
The Lightning throws its lurid
And shall I lose the taith I knew?
That stanza just about fits
my feelings when I look b;?ck
at last November cyclone and
ruminate on its results and
;Jskvh-ulate the time and think
r the hard licks it-will take to clean
. L) this political field of ours ready
for another crop of good feeling and
icsj erity. I sometimes have a no
tion to take advantage of my Metho
dist cdiicaticn and fall from grace
long enough to vent my spleen when
I rtad how those new hands are sup
rdan.Mng tho substan'htl fences of
v 1 government (staked and ridered
v;r h economy) with a measely brush
ll'air that went turn the breachy
cattlo of extravagance, excess and
misrule. Those fallows who have
.rot "the contract. o run things for
the next two years have foohd the
sovereign people. Their refusal to
give a cue legged 3oUier a job was
,m L-ye opener to the old veterans.
I can't diyine what they are driving
at when they want to specify that
nine hours shall constitute a days
work unless a premium is to be put
:n idioross. mat sworn won l sun
rill i . 1 . Ji ... !i
us farmers except ia winter time,
it won' suit the mechanic because
it3, as 'i rile, works by the job or at
,:0 mu h an hour, uud as for the fac
"orv t ople, thev would kick clear
ut of their traces they work by the
out, the hank or some other kind of
piece work in the majority of in
stances, and the more hours they
work the bigger the day's wages.
There is but one good feature about
fhat clause stopping children under
i t from factory work and that s
a lot of big, burley, able bodied fel
lows ttould have to hustle around a
little more to support these self
.-ame tJf supporting children. But
then there would be lots of evib.
The little ones wcuUi be virtually
out of a job by a compulsory state
;, t. Tv n if they attended all ees--hr.s
of public schools they are de
L.i rf d from employment at home
- ring vacations and all times when
-Vo'j are not kept according to
h- L'-neral bent of human nature
'b y viM ve in idleuess regular
gakiins. Tbe cutting off of
wlM their little hands could do
would materially affect the quality of
their food and texture of their cloth
ing. I realley don't believe that one
half of these newly made la,T makers
-ver eaw inside of a factory.
They dou't know how com
fortable they are, summer and
wi Lter. The majority of. these peo
ple, big and little, are contented, as
well contented as a "Republican or
Populist in oflice and where they
idd economy to industry they are
prosperous. They dress well, better
than the most of people, and they
live well, and in most instances have
some cash. Thess newly constituted
Jaw givers with their self-imposed
state craft put me in mind of a cook
my ang l once Hired she broke up
more crockery and dishes than her
wages came to and left more litter
and trash behind the broom than she
carried before it. Now, if we are
going to have a nine hour system, I
let's make it sweeping. Let's j
have no clacsificatiou kg is-;
lation, es a colored Concord Populist '
puts it. Let the pbiitcj, tj)0 rm-r, j
rhnnt n 1 the contractor ar well r.2
the manufacturer understand that
all day laborers can avail themselves
of this n'ne hour phoit 6top. Then
we will see where we are at. 1 doubt
whether our a --ate repn seutatiye
would allow a nine hour fellow on
his farm in the busy season, and
farm work u a le. harder than mill
work. We old fogies used to hirj;
day hands and give them dinner.
We've learned better now. If we
can't bargain for a completion of a
peice of work for a stated sum, we
hire on pay for the horrs actually
consumed at so much per hour.
Sore head political and ambitions
demagogu3 made the farmers believe
that they were going to perisb, body
and soul blind folded them and
carried them into the camp of their
worst enemy, the Republican party.
New they are work hi g their gave
yard rabbit font to undermine pud
destroy the content of the mill hand
Kindne.s is the cheapest commodity
iu the world, but I don't feel i like
I had much to gi- n these fellows
who an tearing: things upside down,
root and branch. The people of
North Carolina hive been caught
out in tin? rai a with no umberella,
and it came through these crocking
Some Is allers grumhlin', no matter
what they do,
And the-y keep th-.mselves and others In
a never ending stew
There's nothing seems to please 'em, and
you'l often hear 'em say
If they had this world to manage 'twould
1 c run a different way.
It is to be regretted that Bill Hos
kms and oihtr rum sellers have
made their escape this court While
the city does not reap a benefit from
taxation, the county gets some
mighty good service out of the few
who UiC caught and convicted.
Good roads are about as essential as
My angel i3 happy at the thought
of the Sfate guard being done away
with. I could not imagine hy,
though until curiosity got the better
of me, and after teasing some time,she
told me it would disband the Fourth
Regiment drum corns. Let's all
Dry thit such may come to pass.
The cold wave did not strike here
Saturday night, but it's a coming.
With best wishes, I remain

V.'Iint Was Done in ihe Senate ant 2

the following bills and resolutions
disposed of ;
Bill relative to the public print
ing ; referred. To authorize
James A Cruse, late sheriff of Gran
ville, to collect arrears of taxes;
passed second and third readings.

passed second and third readings.
To allow an increase of taxation tor
the maintenance of the public graded
schools at Charlotte ; passed second
reading. To provide for instruction
in vocal music n- the public schools
of the State; tabled, Iu regard to
eligibility cf school committeemen ;
amended by the committee. Mr.
Moody moved to amend by adding
that one committeeman be a lady.
Mr. Francks objected to having a
lady committeeman, for, said he, the
men would always agree to every
thing she said and she would boss
the school. Mr. PaddiRon asked if
the constitution would not have to
be changed ; that it was an oflic?.
Mr. Moody thought not, Mr, Mew
borne favored Mr. Moody's amend
ment and said he believed he would
like to have two women instead of
oiie. Mr. Marshall wanted two
women. Mr. Carver wanted one.
Mr. Grant thought it would be a
good tiling to have a lady. Mr.
McCasky opposed haying any woman
on the board soman was not seek
ing the position. Mr. Brown favor
ed the Moody amendment. Mr.
dtarbuck opposed it and moved to
table. Ayes and noes demanded and
so ordered. The Senate refused to
table ayes S, noes o5. Mr. Mew
home spoke in favor of the amend
ment. He said the Populists had in
the late canvass advocated eq.ial
rights to ail and special privileges
to none ; tfiat tbe time had come
for 'them to show thtir hand. Mr.
Marshall thought we had ignored
the women long enough and they
ought to be recognized. Mr. Adams
said that he supposed that the
Moody amendment would be adopted
and tbe next step would be women
nominated for sheriffs and other
officers. Mr. Dowd endorsed the
remarks of Mr, Adams and said tbe
women did not want it ; that in some
States they wanted to go to Congress.
He thought in some counties they
could not get a woman to take it ;
he knew the Indies of Mecklenburg
did not want to go into court
houses and mix in such matters. Mr
A bell moyed to amend so that it ap
ply only to Haywood county. Mr.
Long said he agreed with the senti
ment of the gentleman from Meck
lenburg. He could speak for his
county (Columbus) ; that you could
not get five intelligent women m
the county to accept such a position.
The preyious Jquestion ordered and
the bill wa3 tabled.

to order by Speaker Walser and Rev.
D II Tuttle prayed.
