The so-called discussion of the
onui ibiiss Statehood bill drags its
weary length ulong. After another
week of filibustering, on the part of
the Republican Senators who believe
with tho President that their party
should disregard its numerous past
pledges and should shut our State
hood doors to such Territories' a
might become Democratic Suites,
"the Senate remains in statu Quay,"
as Senator Dietrich wittily remarked
Hut these saintly Republicans ure
guilty of something worse tlian Mi-
buslering, tlu-y ure crying "stop
tlieif" and trying to make the coun
try believe that not they, but those
who favor tho Statehood bill, are the
real lilibusterers. The people ure
not so easily fooled. They know,
when they see this pack of hypocrites
makimr long-winded speeches for
several weeks nnd doing all in their
power to delay uctiou and prevent a
vote, upon whom to place me uuinie.
The administration Republicans
have completely unmasked them
selves during the post week, and now
brazenly tieclarc that tlioy are so un-
xious to detent the bill, and to repu
diate their platform pledges that
they prefer an extra session of Con
gress, rather than see the bill pass.
As Senator Quay has moved to

them, and as the amendments have,

and which will report them favor
ably, u vote cannot be had on the
most vital question of appropriations,
or, as they ure commonly called,
"pork" bills, w ithout first voting on
the Statehood bill. . Thus it is evi-
eiit that, unless one or the other
side yields before the 4th of March,
an extra session is inevitable, lioth
factions of the Republicans would
have much to rejoice over this -out

There was a small sensation start
ed in the House end of the Capital
lust week when Mr. Montagu Lessler,
a member of Congress from New
Vorn. accused the Holland subma
rine boat .people of attempting to
bribe him to support a bill before
his committee, the Committee on
Naval Affairs. He made tho asser
tion with such vehemence at a nieet
inir of the committee that t he com
mittee could not help biking cogniz
ance of il and ordered an inve.-tiga-
tiou to uscct lain the facts of the
Now. be it known that the Hon.
Miiiit.iiii lessler is a little bit of a
half portion num. not bigger than a
half pound of soap after a hard day's
washing, and he 'S a congressional
accident, lie was elected to succeed
a Democrat w ho resigned and w ho
been elected by over riOOO major
ity in the tlisliiet III l'.lOO. the
Demoornts nominated the Hon.
Perry Uelmont who was persona
rata o C'roker and Tammany Hull
and the gang proceeded to knife Mr.
IWlmont up to the Hilt and the ue
publieuu nominee, Mr. Lessler, w ho
had accepted tne noiiuiiiiuou uncr u
had gone begging, in order to lead a
forlorn hope, was elected by a few
hundred majority and that is the
way he broke into the House ot Itep
resentiitives. He is simply a sample
of many who now occupy seatsin the
national House oi itepreseiiiauves
who make politics cheap m this
country. Real men of character and
ability who have the brains und the
honor lo properly represent a consti
tuency in tha Congiess of the United
States cun mukc more than the
$5,000 a year paid them an compen
sation, and they con not afford to go
to Congress in justice to their fami
lies and their future. This iiuturul
lv let in the cheap politician hi the
cities or the very rinh nmn who wants
u plaything in the shape of a con
gressional experience and who has no
more sense about the legislation
bv the country than a string of dead
cat fish. That is how such men as
Lessler get to Congress. It was
choice between a little cheap Tombs
lawyer and u rich man who had no
.lesire to uo nis cumin v unj
and the cheap skate won. hen he
cot to Washincton he immediately
acquired a uad case ot tne negaioce-
nhalitis or, what is commonly Known
as the swell head. He was placed
on the committee on naval affairs to
take the place of th late lamented
Amos J. Cummings, peace to his
ashes, and his importance visibly in
creased. He was called on by sever
al eeutlemau interested in the Hol
land suomariuo uoai and asxeu n lie
would support a bill asking the
irovernment to construct a number
of those boats as harbor defences,
He said to iiiose gentlemen that he
understood they had many friends on
his committee. VY hen they said tlicy
had some he asked how much they
paid them and the conversation enu
d there. True to the instincts ot
the average cheap Republican con
gressman from the big cities of th.
country, he smelled graft and want
ed his share. He got nothing and
has made his "beef before the com
mittee and it has fallen as flat as a
enstard pie from the top of a church
He trot a poor duiio in New York
named Doblin to come over here be
fore the committee and corroborate
all be had said concerning this bribe.
ThenJDoblin either got scared or
paid and the next day went before
the committee again and took buck
everything be had said the previous
day. This left Mr. Leas' er up in the
air and he now has bis statement be
fore the committee with no testimony
to corroborate it. If an attempt had
liven made to bribe this little man
and he hud been so pure us to with
stand the alliiremeuU and tempta
tions of the legislation promoters in
Washington, why did lie not make
use of this ammunition during the
congressional campaign lust fall
when it would have done him some
good? The people of this country
aro honest mid they appreciate an
honest legislator. If ho could ' have
proven his case lust fall he would
liuve stood some show of coming
back to Congress, whereas, he was
defeated by some 10,000 votes by
The truth is that when a liian is
offered a bribe for his vote in this
capitol you hear of it so seldom that
it is refreshing, especially if the man
can prove it. This will prove to be
a tempest in a teapot, and when Mr.
Lessler leaves Congress on the 4 th
day of March next he will fall into
the dark, backward abyss ,f lime
from the standpoint of national pol
itics. The only anti-trust legislation that
the present Congress will pass, if the
Statehood fight continues, is an
amendment to the bill creating the
Department of Commerce and Labor
which amendment authorizes the in
vestigation of trust transactions us
tho bureau may be able to gather
them and these are only to be made
public at the discretion of the Presi
dent. The trusts evidently do not
object to this law, for those llepubli-
cau benutors, who ure known to lie
friends of the trusts, favor the unieiul
ment. The only danger to the trusts
is that in the event of the election of
a Democratic, President he might or-
ler all trust transactions to be made
public and the people would know
the enormous profits the trusts are
nmkini: on what they sell in this
country, and the fact that many of
the trusts ure selling cheaper to the
foreigner than they are here. There
is no likelihood "of a Republican
I resident exposing such transactions
of the trusts because it would prove
the contention of the Democrats that
le turilf fosters the trusts. The
fact is that this so-called anti-trust
amendment is of no actual service to
the people as fur as results are con
cerned; it is merely enacted to point
to as some effort to curb the trusts.
Again the people have been fooled.
It is evident that such a measure will
make it more ineumbeut than ever
upon the trusts to put up boodle to
ect a l'resnleiit who will serve mem
faithfully and who will not expose
their secrets to their injury. Thus
this measure guaranteca an ample
Republican campaign fund.

Our Raleigh Letter.
Special Cor. TJio Courier.
Raleigh, Feb. 3. The solution of
the Senatorial problem on the sixty
lirst ballot, after three weeks of cau
cussing und fruitless balloting, by
the election of Hon. Lee S. Overmuu,
gives entire satisfaction to the Dem
ocracy of North Carolina, and not u
single complaint bus been heard.
It was a clean, honestly conducted
contest oil the part of all the candi
dates, and no suggestion of unfair
methods or dishonest practice has
been heard from any quurtcr. The
vote on the lust ballot (Overman t'i,
Watson 58, Craig 11) showel that
six former Watson nieu and only
three Craig men went over to Over
man ut the final w ind-up. So, Mr.
Overman does not owe his nomina
tion to Mr. Craig or to Mr. Cruig's
contingent, (over half of whom had
already gone to Watson) but to the
independence and judgment of those
who after vainly voting for Mr. Wat
son night after night, and becoming
convinced that he could not win,
turned to Mr. Overman, whom they
believed they could elect.
One month from next Wednesday
it will be "Senator O.erman" and
"ex-Senator IVitcliaid." Every Re
publican in the Legislature voted lor
I'ritchard and he received 21 votes,
Mr. Overman's vote on Friday at the
joint session of the Semite and House
Senator-elect Overman is exactly
forty-nine years and one mouth old
to-day, in the very prime of life, and
there is probably no man in North
Carolina better quulilied at the very
outet of his career to fill the place
to which he bus just been chosen.
ibis is not the lirst time the Dem
ocrats of the Legislature have nomi
nated Mr. Overman for the Senate,
lie was the caucus nominee eight
years ago, to fill the unexpired term
f Senator unco, but was defeated
by Mr. I'ritchard, whom he now, in
turn, defeats for re-election.
Personally and socially our new
Senator is a most companionable and
lovable gentleman. Possessed of suf
ficient dignity (and not burdened
with that generally unpopular pos
session), a manly physique andoand
some face, a richly stored mind and
eloquent tongue, und with a legisla
tive experience that will now stand
him in good stead, ne win go ui

haps as liny new man ever sent to the
United States Semite. And ho will

private secretary he was for several
years while Vance was Governor of
The whiskey question, precipitated
by the introduction of the Watts and
London olils, and discussion uiuiiig
the past week befoie the joint com
mittee, is red-hot aud still u-hcating.
I'he whiskey interests ure uiidoiiiit-
lly stirred up, the distillers, wnoie
tlers and retailers, all classes of
them. And well they may be, for
there has not been such a widespread
temperance sentiment in the State
and among the legislators in a gen-
ation as that which exists now.
The meetings of the joint commit
tee on Propositions and urievances,
which were addressed by scores of
leading men and women, represent-
all ciillmgs, were so largely at
tended that the Legislative Hall
could not hold all who would have
ntered if they could. It now looks
as though a compromise bill, retain
ing niustot the important features ot
the Wutta und Ixindon bills, will be
reported mid passed.
Liquor cannot now be sold in two
thirds of the counties of this State,
and if such a bill as the temperance
people ask for is passed John Barley
corn must soon bid farewell to North
Carolina, us a licensed commodity at
ast. The honor men have a num-
ler of lawyers here lighting the ef
forts of the temperance people.
An "industrial school ' or reform
atory for young and inexperienced
criminals "and neglected or forsaken
or homeless youngsters prone to go
to the bad, will be established. 1 his
result is due to the efforts ot the
ood women of the Stub', representa
tives of whom have secured a favora
ble report lor II M.OOO appropriation
to erect the initial building and dor-
mitory. It is ui.ticiputed th.it a site,
with a considerable urea of farming
an tinioer iiiuus, wm uv numra.
The counties will be required tosii
port the inmates until the institu
tion gets on a self-sustaining basis,
euch county contributing $100 a
veur for each inmate from that coun
ty. ' The child labor bill has not lieeii
taken up yet, but it is suited that it
may come up next week. There is
no 'doubt of the passage of a wise and
sensible anti-child labor bill. Pub
lic sentiment demands it. I he law
makers here are fully aware of that
fact, and they will enact the law
when the time conies, be it next
week or later.
A bill passed the Senate Friday
allowing certuin divorced parties to
re-marry, but before it was passed
the bill was amended by Senator
Henderson so aa to provide for the
repeal of the Acts of lh95 and 1899,
making abandonment for three years
a pround tor divorce, jne inn win
nrobablv Pass the House also.
Senator Glenn, chairman of the
Senate Committee on Asylums for
the insane, wants an investigation of
these three institutions by the joint
legislative committee, and be will
this week offer a resolution to that
efftt. He says he is influenced to
take this coui'se because of certain
"rumors." involving the mistreat.
ment of patients, etc., which have
reached him, at the same time stat
ing that he docs not credit them.
Still, h- thinks an investigation by
the committee (empoweicd to "send
for persons and pajiers") advisable.
Sciiutor-elect Overman and Sena
tor Simmons arc both graduates of
Trinity College, und that famous and
splendid institution ii naturally
proud of them. Among the hun
dreds of telegrams and letters receiv
ed by Mr. Overman since his election
was one from his old society ut
Trinity, the "Columbian."
The joint meeting of the Senate
und House Committees on Manufac
tures have set next Thursday, Feb
ruary 5, as the day for initial hear
ing on the anti-child labor bills.
Advocates and opponents of the
measure will be given opportunity
to lie lieaul by the committee ut that
time. A bill of this character will
unquestionably be passed, but there,
arc some differences as to what its
provisions shall contain.
Now that the Senatorship is set
tled the Legislature will get down
more earnestly und systematically to
work. It is really astonishing how
niuiiy "bills," of nil sorts, can be
originated in the fertile bruins of
these Ir.w-innkers, especially the
"new member." Of course a large
percentage of them arc killed and
limy never get beyond the eoniniittce
rooms. Granville county court meets to-day
at Oxford. It wus expected by some
that the "celebrated case" of Gattis
against Kilgo and others would come
up at this term for its fourth airing
in couit, but I am informed that it
cannot be reached on account of a
heavy criminal docket.
The question of who shall be the
next Governor of North Carolina
in other words, the Dcm. nominee
next year is being discussed by the
legislator.'' and other visitors to the
capital, so many of whom have been
here during the lust three weeks.

Power of thei-Fifty-First Psalm.
It is impossible to comprehend the
power of the Fifty-first Psalm upon
the race. Kings, scholar and cot
tagers have read it with the same
spiritual profit. It was the death
song of the French Protestants in
the times that for cruelty have hud
few equals. It was sung by George
Wishart when taken prisoner before
the miiitydom ut St. Andrews. Its
opening verse wus the dying cry of
the Scottish martyr, Thomas Forret,
whose grave was green a quarter oi u
century before Scotlund became free
from ecclesiastical tyranny. Us cry
for mercy wus repeated by Lady Grey
upon the fateful day of her own and
her husband's death. Its burning
words broke from tho lips of John
Hiiss at the place of his execution
near Constance'. John Rogers re
peated its confessions and triumph
ant paens on the way to the I ires of
Sniithlield. The words of the He
brew Psalmist were spoken by Sir
Thomas Moore "who was famous
through Europe for eloquence and
wisdom'' as he laid his head upon

President Ingalls of the Big Four
road writes mi execrable hand, and
a farmer living near Springfield, O.,
is glad of it. One day Mr. Ingalls
was riding over a division of the
road and came within smelling dis
tance of a particularly cmphati-j
hog pen owned by tho farmer. Next
dny lie wrote an nutogrnph letter to
the agriculturist, complaining of
the hog pen. The farmer could not
road a word of it nnd showed tho
missive to a Big Four agent. The
latter could not make anything out
of it either, but enid it looked like
the passes sometimes issued by
President Ingalls. This was a sug
gestion to the farmer, who declurus
that lie 'made several trips on the
road, using the illegiblo scrawl as a
pass, before conductors dipcovcrcd
that it was a proiesl instead.
A royal wedding is a very expen
sive 'afTair not only for those who
give it, but for each guest. The
presents necessarily cost tho guests
a great deal, for only the richest
and rarest gifts can to offered to
royalty. Besides a gift each guest
must lcnvo a sum of money for ev
ery servant and attendant in his
host's house. As there are numer
ous attendants and each one must
receive n "tip" according to his
rank a great deal of money is nec
essary. At the marriage of the
Grand Duke and Duchess of Hesse
the guests left altogether $9,000 to
bo distributed, besides bestowing
$0,500 worth of gifts among fhe
servants before their departure.
