A Bunch of Live News From
Our Correspondent at the
Washing, D. C, March 23. The
chances are that when this is read
both the treaties will hare been rat
ified, for which purpose the Senate
was convened in extra session. There
never was much opposition to the rat
ification of the Panama Canal treaty
on the part of the Demociats, pro
vided they could get certain amend'
men ts added to it that would give
this government absolute control of
the canal. The Democrats haye not
got all they want in the treaty, but
it has been modified somewhat, and
as both parties are committed to
canal of some kind and somewhere,
it probably will go through. There
is doubt expressed here, however,
that the canal ever will be built.
There has been no denying the stren
uous opposition to any canal by the
transcontinental railroads of the
country, and it is the freely express
ed belief here that those roads will
find some way to circumvent the
building of the canal. It will be
interesting to watch the work of the
railroads after the ratification of the
Ko far as the Unban reciprocity
treaty is concerned, the Democrats
have won a signal victory over tho
Republicans. As said in a former
letter, it was the intention of the
Democrats to talk the treaty to death
unices they could get all they con'
tended for, and when the Republi
cans saw them line up as one uian
under the able leadership of Hon
Arthur Pue Gorman, they capitulat
ed and came down like tcott s coon,
It is the first time in years that the
democrats in the Senate have pre
sented an unbroken front to the tie'
publicans. When they have done so
in the past they invariably have won
a victory. 'Die trouble has been that
in the recent past they have had no
leadership in the Senate worthy the
name. I hey have it now, and the
results are apparent to the most cas
ual observer. The Democrats said
to the Republicans that they must
add an amendment to the (juban re
ciprocity treaty that would give the
House of Hepresentatives tho right
to also pass upon it before it became
operative, because it was legislation
that affected the revenue of the gov
ernment and that all such legislation
must have the concurrent sanction of
the House of Representative, or else
it would not be constitutional legis
tion. It would be practically elimi
nating the House as one of tne legis
lative branches of the government
and legislation by the Senate exclu
sively. It will lie remembered that
tho House at the first session of the
57th Congress passed a law giving
this reduction in the rates of the
Dingley law that is asked for, but it
also tacked on to it a clause that
eliminated the differential on refined
sugar, which would save tho consum
ers of this country millions of dollars
annually that now go into the pock
ets of the sugar trust. For that
very reason the henute refused to
consider the measure and let it die.
It now comes to the front with the
treaty, eivine the same reduction in
the Dingley rates, but it does not re
move the differential or rehned sugar,
which gives the consumer in this
country a chance, and clearly is an
attempt to play in the hands of the
sugar trust. The Republicans have
been forced to agree to the amendment
to allow the House to pass on the
treaty when it meets next winter. If
they had'not agreed to it they would
not have cot away from here all sum
mer, or olse would have been forced
to abandon the treaty altogether.
The net result of this Democratic
victory will be that the House next
winter will either add the amend
ment again, eliminating the differ
ential on refined sugar, or if it pass
es the House as sent to it by the Sen
ate, then the Democrats in the Sen
ate will 0en up the tariff debate in
its entirety and consume the wnoie
session in speeches that will be made
in open session and will go to tne
country as Democratic cainpaien
documents. -In either event the
trusts will got it in the neck and the
people willw benefited. Score one
A nu'mbcr of the leaders of the
Democratic party who still are in
Washineton are to-day discussing
the letter of Mr. William Randolph
Hearst to the Iionuois Club of Chi
cago, and which appeared to-day in
the daily papers, it is a letter ex
pressing his regret at his inability to
tie present at their annual bannuet to
do reverence to the memory of An
drew Jackson, and in it he breathes
forth the very spirit and essence of
trne Democracy. It is a messace ' of
optimism and hope to the trne Demo
crats of tne whole conntry, aim in
every way is snch an able paper that
it has cangh the attention of the
leaders of the party here, who men
tion it in the most complimentary
way. There are a few persons who,
not' knowing Mr. Hearst, actually
think that because be has money he
does not work himself, and that the
articles signed by himself, are writ
ten by some of the bright ment in
his employ. There never was a
arreater mistake made by them. The
writer knows Mr. uearsi personally,
and knows that he is an abler man
than any man in his employ, and
does more actual work than any of
It wonld seem as though the trusts
rather than the government of the
United States, were shaping our
nolicv in the Philippine Islands.
Despite all tbe appeals made by the
President and Governor Taf t, Con
gress did nothing toward relieving
the economic distress prevailing in
tnose islands. It passed neither cur
rencv nor tariff legislation of the
kind asked for by tiie commercial
classes of the islands. It has pre
ferred to obey tho wishes of the
tobacco and sugar trusts rather than
comply with those of tho suffering
millions of people. This Republi
can Uongicss has been guilty of gross
negligence of duty by not passing
legislation in the interest of the peo
ple of those islands. They are com
pelled to rely on our good will and
charity, and have tho right to de
mand help of some kiud from us.
By thus refuting to do anything for
the Filipinos this Republican Con
gress has put a premium on disorder
and insurrection, and it would not
be at all surprising if the American
army in the Philippines finds itself,
before long, busier than it has been
for some time. Tho policy of im
perialism is bringing its own reward.
It is believed here, by the people
who ought to know, that the recent
visit to this capital .by J. Pieipont
,i i,r. .ii i, irUoi
dent means an extra session of the
58th Congress and that it will be
called sometime early in tho month
of September. It is believed that
Mr. Morgan said to the President
that ho aud the money kings of wall
street could not stave off a panic
longer than September unless there
was legislation that would relieve
them: In other word, they want the
Aldrich bill passed, so that the
money now in the Treasury can be
placed in the banks of Wall street
and relieve the pressure on them.
Thus is this administration not only
run by the Wall street gang, but it
approves (a policy that takes the
money out of the people's pockets
and places it in -tho bunks of the
country, so that, they can loan it
back to tho people and make a profit
out of I hem.
The remedy is in the hands of the

give to him in his old age u power to
which but few attain.
Mr. Bulla was born in Hack
Creek township, five miles from
Aslielioro, in the year 1825. Ho was
of a family of brothers and sisters of
which lie is the only surviving mem

brothers, was for many years a promt

him settled in Pennsylvania while he,
himself, drifted South and linnllv
located in piedmont North Cajolimt.
The Bulla family of England, of
which this is branch, is well known
at the present tune.
in Air. liullas youth, school
were scarce and though he made
extra effort to secure instruction, all
ho received was two years in a free-
school, one nt Aslielioro Academy

1 ittsboro, who was manager of
Senator Overman's Senatorial
Campaign iu the recent content
and two at Trinity College, which he
left iu 1X51. In 1853 he was mar
ried to Miss Sophia Lorn, who hail
visited in Randolph and came from
a prominent family of New Jersey.
Lntil he was 23 years ol age, ho
never left the county in which he
has born, lie taught school for
four years, during which time he
studied law and iu 157 he was
licensed to practice and located in
Asheboro. Ho remained there ten
years. Inlc tueie Ins family and
the family of Judge Tourgee' were
neighbors and very friendly and are
yet friends even though parted by
the Atlantic Ucean. '
He was elected county solicitor in
1809 and held tins position until
18(!8, when he becaiu solicitor of the
old judicial district, of which Albion
W. Tourgee was judge. During the
four years m this olnce, ho was nlso
a member of the county school board
and a captain of the home guard.
ills military duties consisted in
huuting deserters, and he relates
many numerous tales of his experi
ences while acting iu that capacity.
Inlouilhe was counsel for Hie
Moore county commissioners iu a
case which was carried to the United
States Supremo Court. The case
was entitled "Worthy vs. Loiniins-
sioners" nnd grew out of the inability
of sheriff-elect Worthy to take the
iron-clad oath. Mr Bulla received
a fee of five hundred dollars for his
services arid he yet tells of the big
time he had while in Washington.

He dined with President Grant, at
tended State receptions and was
treated royally. lie tells that he
rode around there in four horse car
riage for three weeks and then had
to walk home.
Moving to Grecnelioro iu 18S0, he
remained there only fouryeais, whon
he went to Lexington. There for
many years he was engaged in his
profession in partnership with his
son, George M. Bulla, who died in
1893. His second daughter, Miss
Buttie Bulla, died in 1887. In
1894 he was paralyzed on his jight
side and has never regained the use
of his right limbs but other thus
this, lie is in full possession of his
normal faculties. Shortly after he
recovered from the worst of thi
paralytic stroke, he and his wife
went 'to Trinity where they have
since made their home with their
daughter, Mrs. Nanni A. Crayen,
Mr. and Mrs. Bulla hive seven
grandsons: Prof. Harvey B. Craven,
ot Ui'eenslioro; Sir. hrle H. Craven,
of Lexington; Rev. James B. Craven,
of Cooleeiuee; Mr. Bruce Craven, of
Charlotte; Mr. George B. Craven, of
Trinity, nnd llolmrt and George
Bulla, the orphan children of George
M. isulln, who live with their
mother's parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. B,
Keen, of Thoiuusville.
Mr. Bulla always possessed a hu
morous nature; ho was and is full of
that sympathy and kindness of heart
that breaks forth in spontaneous
mirth. Onco a reprobate walked in
to Ins ollicc and said, "Mr. Hull.!,
they tell me yesterday when I was
on the witness stand you picked up
yotir hat and left ami said that
what I was tolling was not exactly
tho truth." The lawyer understood
at once that his visitor had come for
an apology though he was too timid
to say so, but it happened that
nollimg ot the kind had been said
so he replied "No, Jake, I did not
say that." "Well, I knew it wasn't
so when I heard it but I just thought
I would mention it to you," replied
Jake as he started to leave. "No, 1
didn't say it," repeated Mr. Bulk
"though it is a wonder I didn't for I
knew everything you said was noth
ing more nor less than a pack of
lies." At another time a lawyer who
was on the opposing side to Mr.
Bulla asked to have 4 certain case
postponed on account of the "sud
den sickness of a principal witness.
'ery well, wild Mr. Bulla, "1 con
sent to have it postponed until to
morrow." "Oh to-morrow will do
no good," said the other lawyer; "I
want it postponed until the noxt
court." And then Mr. Bulla con
vulsed the court with laughter by
rising and saying very gravely,
"Court will not adjourn for a week
ret. Don t you think that is sulh-
cient time for the witness to get
While prosecuting u capital case,
tho lawyer for the defense secured
two ignorant negroes on the jury and
then whispered to the solicitor "I've
'ot you now, Kulla, those niggers
will never vote to hung unvbodv."
Got nothing," was the reply, "thev
ill vote to hang him just to have a
big clay." The jury remained out
several hours and then reported that
they could not agree because the
two negroes were solid for hanging
and the ten white men were eiuallv
determined for nciuitul.
In his practice at the liar, he prose
cuted twiiity-fn-ir men for capital
offenses nnd sixteen of thuni were
hanged, lie defended eight men iu
ruiital cases and only two of them
were linnged. lie n'us alivnyo utid in

punishment but did his duty us
solicitor, because he thought tho law
was weightier than his own porsouul
ipinion. While addressing a jury
n Guilford iu a case against Pill
Parker, he said the defendant ought
to be hung on general principles,
md the jury agreed with him. On
lie other hand lie never telt any
oiupunction of conscience in defend
ing a guilty man because, us he says.
ic law allows the accused to delend
himself and he considered theprison
ner eutitled to representation in
ourt. After his term us solicitor
xpired, u judge once appointed him

nd Mr. liulla humbly begged to be
xciiscd. His honor stuck to his
opinion however somewhat to the
lispleasure ot the law ver who gave
fair warning that if he undertook to
defend the man, he should defend
him to the last ditch. No one ex
pected the case ever to go to the jurv

While living in High Point, Mr
Bulla was engaged iu doing some
collecting for a Northern firm and in
reply to an inquiry from them, wrote
a letter that has been copied all over
the United States and in some
English papers and it is worth nil
the notice that has been given it.
Here it is:
High Point, N. C, Aug. 27, 1877.
John Smith & Co., Philadelphia, Pa.:
Gentlemen: iteplying to yours of
the 18th inst., I have to say thut for
the prospect of having claims placed
n my hands to collect and nothing
more, I do not feel willing to report
the standing of the party mentioned
or of any one else. I do not want to
be misunderstood us saving I do not
want paying business, but I do know
that a lawyer would starve as quick
on commissions us he would on corn
cob soup iu January.
1 have had some experience in col
lecting since tho war, or rather
trying to collect. I have offered to
compromise claims by taking old
Hies, frozen cabbage, circus
tickets, patent medicine, whet stones,
powder horns, old flour barrels,
gourds, coon skins, jaybirds, owls or
almost anything: unit yet 1 have u
number of the old claims on bund
unsettled. If 1 were to depend on
collecting for a living, mvbean broth
would rattle in me like pot liquor in
a poor dog.
I don't want to shoot at long
range but if yon are inclined to pay
anything certain for the reports, I'm
your man say ten dollars cush
and then I'm iu; or if money is
scarce 1 would fake shoes, large

the amount of ten dollars ut w hole
it s hard times here; the niggers
aud the Dctnocruts have polled and
worried each other until this whole
country smells like cheese. How in
the world would you exH-ct to collect
money out of a people who plow
speckled bulls on hillsides? If you
were to see a nigger plowing his
orilen with a sow. von would not
wonder why I don't want clnims to

Advice to Boys.
Idleness is the devil's own work
shop, and especially is his true of
boys. We never feel sorry for the
boy who has to work, even if it be to
help make a living for himself and
fninilv: hut we do nitv the Ikiv who
has nothing to do ami whose parents
are able to keep him from having to
labor. The bov who may work mid
get only n stipend of a dollar, or even
s, a week is learning habits of in
dustry. It is from tiie boys who be
gin .-arly the lit? of industry that
conic the successful men of the na-
ion. The Imiv who waits until he is
grown, or until he uepuires un cdu-
ation, before ne begin to labor or
earn a profession is apt to start iu
ife handicapped and outstripped by
lis seemingly less fortunate com-
etitor who started in ahead ot him.

to work for twe.ity-live cents a week

How can it be expected that jus

heaven and ea.'l'a to clear a guilty

society and good government. No
amount of reasoning, no custom and
no code of ctiiics can change this
fact. Lawyers can be found in this
State who will foi money undertake
to free a lecherous scoundrel who
they know has committed a brutal
murder or despoiled a home. The
more flagrant the crime, and the more
