tfRDIAY, JUXE 20, 1879. iv
There are elements inside df-tlie De
mpnioUv ciasUwlien ' a question ai
finance is raised. For this reason it was
hoped that after the passage of, the
Bland bill, the remonetizatiori of sil ver
and the resumption of specie-payments
on the part of the government the two
coins standing on the same footingy-the
question of the finances would be laid
aside and the differences within the par
ty adjusted.,, They would have JL)eeiji had
the question been allowed to rst tjhere.
These results were a iompromisje of
themselves: the soft njoney men gain4
ed their end in the passage of the Bland
bill, and the hard-money men saw their
victory in the success of resumption.
'But instead of resting the case there,
Mr. Warner, of Ohio, springs another
silver bill in the House, and the old feel
ing between the two factions is revived.
To such an extent has this gone that
Mr. Bayard, a hard-money man, has
ftfund it necessary to the maintenance
of his own dignity to send in his resig
nation as chairman of the finance com
mittee of the Senate. Here is a most
disagreeable state of affairs. One of the
truest, ablest and best men of the party
has been driven to this extremity, and
the resignation is now pending with
the probability of its being not accepted.
We are pleased to note that in the Sen
ate Democratic caucus, held last Tues
day, Mr. Gordon made a speech, "which
is described on all hands as one of great
fervor and eloquence," in opposition to
accepting Mr. Bayard's resignation, well
designating that gentleman, in the
course of his remarks, as "the truest of
It is worth while to notice the causes
leading up to this state of things All
the difficulty grew out of Mr. Bayard's
preference that the Warner bill should
go over nntil the December session.
Only this and nothing more. On ac
count of this it is moved that the fin
ance committee of the Senate be dis
charged from the further consideration
of the bill and the Senate take it in its
own hands. This implying a reflection
npon the chairman of the committee, he
very properly resigned.
Passing by the merits and demerits
of the Warner bill, everybody must
have seen by this that it is altogether
ill-timed. Had its introducer and man
ager exhibiied the proper wisdom he
would have withheld it until the regu
lar session, or, having introduced it,
would have consented to its going oyer
after seeing to what its discussion was
leading. In point of fact there is no
necessity for it, the finances having been
too much tinkered with already, and in
point of policy it should have been held
back at least until the December ses
sion. YET AGAI.V.
Jt would appear to be almost
unnecessary to do so again, but for
mere truth's sake we are prompted to
repeat that The Observer has never
nominated Hendricks and Church as
the next national Democratic ticket.
An editorial in the llaleigh News, treat
ing this ticket as of The Observer's
suggestion, inspires us to again disavow
the responsibility for it. As the News
manifestly did not see the original ar
tide on the subject as it - appeared in
these columns, nor yet a subsequent de
nial of our responsibility for it, it in all
probability will not see this; therefore
instead of asking it for a; correction we
make the correction ourselves. X-The
sum and substance-of tho matter is
that a communicatroTT)addressed "To
the Editor of The, Observer," and
signed "Two Demota." appeared in
the issue of this paper.;bf the 20th of
May. This paper referred to the com
m unication editorially, and "character
ized the proposed ticket as another ad-J
dition to the list of available names--neither
endorsing nor repudiating itr
xna while upon4 the subject wetafceV
occaion4ofiay again that weare noOJon is gotnttglyi4a
in the business of President inakine: at
present. It is tbo'f ar off by twortbirds:
or three-fourths to commit one's self
irrevocably to or against any man for
the presidency next year. ''Many men
are made and marred in a year's time,
and it is folly for any one to undertake
now to say who will be th strongest
man next year. lie who is atthis'tfrmi
may be the weakest then, and of ail'
those who have been mentioned he who
is the weakest nvf; a year hence may
bethe strongest, ' For this reason we
have not been able to see the utility or
the wisdom of making much noise thus
far ahead for or against, any particular,
man or men. There is time enough ior!
that if, indeed, it need to be done at

A correspondent asked us, in The

road is under? Whether of -the Btate of
North Carolina or. the Eichmond, Va

the question oyer until now, when our
neighbor, the Democrat, insists that we
answer iLWecarr answer the Demo
crat in' its own Words : "We hear con
siderablempMnl,but iarenough with the- facts to make-a de
cide staent" but this; begging
the question. At the same time it is the
best answer we can render. Little can
be learned by outsidersof the workings
of railroad companies, and we do not
know what the "policy" of the manage
ment of the Western North Carolina
Railroad is, if it has any 8pecJalfpoli
cy."J We havebeard it said that it has
cnargea a great aeai more; on;
from Wilmington and Charlotte;deliv-Ued
ered to it at Statesville, than it does on
freight from Richmond, intended for
the same point, delivered to Salis
bury, notwithstanding" ; in the flatter
case it actually hauls it twenty-five
miles further. Why this is so, if so, we
do not undertake tq say.because we do
not know ; that it is so, we could not
swear, and yet with the aid of a
"squire" we could most probably, prove
it. Still, this is not answering the ques
tion asked, our inability to do which
was acknowledged in the outset.
When one Georgian hounds another's
steps and shoots him without provoca
tion, they send him to the penitentiary
for life ; when another shoots the man
f who Iras .destroyed his domestic happi
ness they; likewise send him to the
penitentiary for life, thereby giving; the
same grade tq , both, of the crimes,
though the jury is allowed to consider
the circumstances. It appears from
this that in Georgia justice there is some
thing a little "pecooliar."
Prince Louis Napoleon, the Prince
Imperial of France, has been killed by
the Zulus, according to a cable dispatch
from Capetown. He is the last of a
long and illustrious line, and with his
death perishes the last prospect of a re
establishment of the empire in France.
END OK THE DIER HKAKN CASE.
of Murder, but
Snow Hill, June 19. The jury in
the Duer case came into court at 9.15
with a verdict of "guilty of murder with
a recommendation to the mercy of the
court." The judge informed the fore
man that the verdict must be formal
and the reply must not be guilty of mur
der but guilty of manslaughter. The
foreman s answer was made but before
the verdict was recorded Mr. Ciisfield,
counsel for the defence, demanded a
poll of the jury. When the eighth juror,
Edward F. Causey, was called, he an
swered, "not guilty." His reply caused
a sensation in court and appeared to af
ford relief to many in the court house.
The judge then said as the jury had not
agreed they would have to retire for
further consideration. At 11.10 the jury
again came in court and in reply to the
usual question answered "not guilty of
murder but guilty of manslaughter"
The sheriff took charge of the prisoner

The . Senate .lmainedinBession ill
night. The Democrats refused to ad

agree toffee a, time for a vote on the
arury bUl o-day and the night was
passed i fh-4-oll calls t and attem pts to;
compel the attendance of absent Sena
tors. At an early hour this morning:
an excited personal controversy took
place between Conkling and Lamar, in
which Lamar pronounced a statement
of Conkling's a falsehood, and which,
he said, he repelled with all the unmiti
gated contempt that he felt for the au
thor of it fj , f v-ij -h:-U

or intended, to npute falsehood to

was the Senate would prevent his de
nouncing him as a blackguard, coward
and liar. !
Lamar replied that the Senator un
derstood him correctly. He begged the
pardon of the Senate for unparliament
ary language, and said it was servere
it was such as no good man would de
serve and no brave man would wear.
The discussion of the power of the
Senate to send for absent Senators was
resumed. A motion of Burnside to
compel the attendance of absentees
having been agreed to, the sergeant-at-arms
at 9 : 45 a. m. proceeded to the exe
cution of the order.
At 11 :50 Withers made a parliament
ary inquiry. It was . whether, if the
Senate adjourn now, the legislative day
of Thursday would commence at noon.
The chair responded ifirthe affirmative,
and, on motion of Withers, the Senate
adjourned1 and re-assembled at noon.
The chair stated that owing to the
length of the previous session, the jour
nal was not completely made up, and
suggested that the reading thereof be
Conkling objected and insisted on the
observance of the rule, which provides
that the first business is the reading of
Davis, of West Virginia I take it
Conkling (interrupting) I object to
The chair said the reading of the jour
nal could not be dispensed with except
by unanimous consent.
1:30. The Republicans are engaged
in parliamentary tactics to prevent ac
tion of all kinds.
Later. Filibustering by the Repub
licans continued until after 2 o'clock
when the chair said that at the iexpira
tion of the morning hour he should
have announced the resumption of the
consideration of the army appropriation
bill and did so now, Carpenter, of Wis
consin, being entitled to the floor.
Carpenter proceeded to explain why
the Republicans resorted to parliamen
tary tactics last night He said the en
tire day was consumed not in debate on
the army bill but in the delivery of cam
paign speeches, and then after 6 o'clock
the Democrats insisted on a vote upon
the bill and cutting off further debate.
If now the Democrats would agree to
adjourn he had no doubt a vote could
be reached to-morrow. He then added,
with the consent of the Republicans
generally, that no attempt would be
made to delay proceedings to-morrow
beyond the limits of proper debate.
After further remarks ; by , Withers
and Conkling in which the former said
there was no time yesterday when he
would not have consented to such ar
rangement as that now suggested, Car
penter's proposal was agreed to and, on
motion of Thurman, the Senate ad
journed. House. McMahon, of Ohio, submit
ted a conference report upon the judi
cial expenses bill. Under the report,
section 2 of the bill will prohibit the
making of any contract or the incur
ment of any liability under any of the
provisions of title 2Q of the Revised
Statutes authorizing the appointment
or pavment of ereneral or snecial rierm-
report is under discussion.
L Monroe, of Ohio, one of the conferees
on the part or the House, explained the
reason of bis opposition to the report
