Col. Armfield was fonnd in liiajcoty
room at-the National enjoying an after
dinner pipe. He greeted me with his us
nal urbanity of manner and, we ininip
diately fell to discussing North Carolina
politics. . ' i 1 . ' '
"What do vou think of the movement
of Col. Johuston and lr. Pvice," was the
first qnestiou-hnrled at him. 1. I
"Well,", said he, talking with delibera
tiotu "! cannot say I think it very; for
midable. .Theyddiipt appear to have
much following, and 1 do not anticipate
that they will have. !1 cannot seel that
any movement withj such leaders can
Mauouize North Catoljua. The same
state gf affairs does not exist with us as
existed in Virginia. jTbState debt is
settled and the only question that could
form the nucleus of such a movement
would be the prohibitory question and
that is regarded as settled by all thinking
men in the State. In fact the Democratic
party is not a party of prohibition. No
Democratic State ever passed prohibition
laws. As a party it voted ngaiust it at
the last session of Congress. Why, the
Republican party is the paternal party.
It believes In taking care of the jwople,
morals, religion, business and everything
else. It wants to say what you shall
drink. The Democratic party leaves
these matters for the ipeople themselves
to decide each for hituself, and that is
right. j ; r;
"Our legislature voed to send the mat
ter to the people, bat the Democratic
leaders in that body were all pronounced
anti-prohibition men. j. Had we, as a par
ty, supported prohibition it would have
been carried at our election j as it was,
he question was buried under 119,000
votes. The truth of the move, if it means
anything, is that a feV shallow, ambitious
men are anxious to ride into prominence
on any move that wilt land-them there.
I am of the opinion that had Mr. Price
waited until the party called liinvp he
woaltLhave achieved his ambition, which
is to get iuto Congress, much sooner than
he will by his present! course, provided,
of course, that the papers properly repre
sent his position.
"You do not feel uneasy then V1
"Not the least bit., y "
As the Ocrter. man left the room Col.
Armfield-gave a wliif which blew away
the smoko that enciicled his head. It
impressed theo. m. that with like ease
Mr. Annfleld would dupel any opositiou
coming from the quarter named. OAar.
Observer. ' V
When independents' find fault with tlie
'Democratic', party these days and seek
excuses to sever their connection with it,
one of the first reasouialleged isifs boui1
bonism. This word has done service ever
since Jhe war and willj probably coutinue
to do so for years indefinite. Iu tlie
mouth of the Republican assailant of
Democracy aud his independent co-ad
justor, it is the ever ready epithet. ' -,
We. would like to have some of tliese
disaffected, progress! vb gentlemeu tell us
precisely what they mean by bourbouism,
in what it consists, and what its opposite
is. How long, in their estimation,! has
the bourbouism existed f It' is an old
thing which they failed to perceive when
some' of them were enjoying the. honors
and emoluments conferred upon them by
the Democratic party, or hare they only
discovered it since Gen. Mahone look his
divining rod and went prospecting in
Virginia! Or was th0 discovery quick
ened by the magic arts of Mott, Cooper
&. Co, which threw H sudden flood of
sunshine on the dim optics and clouded
intellects of the seekers after light, who
had so long walked iu Cimmerian dark
uess f Wre are curious to know when the
discovery and how it Sras made.
Is not this iiourbon Democratic party
of to-day the same party which years ago
tli re w itself between their oppressors and
the people, the plunderers and their vic
tims, aud rescued the state from the law
less 'political adventiiters who ran rjdt
and grew rich and fat - out. the plundered
snbstance of the taxpayer f : Is it not the
saine party which battled in defence' of
constitutional rights : and ' civil liberty
when he bayonet asserted ita supremacy
and claimed the right to i dictate at i the
polls; when the military, backed by des
potic central- authority,; arrogated ; the
right to determine electiops and say who
should and, who should trot sit in State leg
islatures and frame.laws for the people?
Is it not the same party which rescued
the State from the party which imported
hireling cut-threats to intimidate the peo
pkvto seize her citizens and hold power
by inaugurating a reign of terror f This
so-called bourbon Democracy then, by as
gallant a fight, against as fearful odds as
any partyt evr made to : rescue North
Carolida from bondage most shameful
and degrading, and has since been fight
ing for the people it rescued with patri
otic and true devotion. With that same
old bourbonic zeal it guards the outposts
and checks the ad vance of the old enemy
who still struggles for the possession of the
field from which they were driven, aided
now and tSen by a few camp-followers or
enticed recruits who become dissatisfied
with the subordinate positions assigned
them in the Democratic ranks.
The Democratic party may be a bour
bon party, but lit isn't the bombonism
that troubles, but whether or notvit
is the bonrboiism that rescued North
Carolina in the day of her sorrow and
oppression, and as such it commands the
confidence aud respect of the people it
saved. But before we admit bourbon isni
we would like to know what the term
means as Used at this day. Char. Obser

The Jarvis administration 'will be
memorable in tlb history of the State,
even were it to shop short by im
peachment or aiy other equaHy un
expected events In it the prohibition
party had its rise and fall. In it the
Western North Carolina Railroad
was sold, aud will be completed. In
it the contract for the sale of the Cape
Fear & Yadkin Valley road! was
negotiated. And notwithstanding
there has been an extra session of the
Legislature, and the probability of
another, the State is prospering and
growing as never beforei There may
be an honest difference pf opinion as
to the acceptability of the Jarvis ad
ministration, but that it is has been
noteworthy in the particulars indica
ted nobody will question. jWe do not

State has had since Morehead

bCOV'11-.LE was very severe in his
denunciation of Grant aud Conklingr
in his speech yesterday. We do not
know that he makes favor for his cli
ent by such a course, j but without
doubt he struck the right key. j It is
a part of the case. The crime of Gar
field's death grew out of the differences
between the President and the; stal
warts. "I am a stalwart of the stal
warts," was the first cry' of the
fellon as he was carried from! the pre
sence of hia-dying victim and that
cry went into history. The drama of
death began iu the Senate chamber,
and no story of the crime is complete
without giving to Goukling and
Grant and Arthur a part iu the move
ment. Not that either ! knew or sus
pected the terrible result, bat all the
scenes were parts of tlie7 act.! We
think that Scoville madejan; injudi
cious use of his opportunities if he
used the language reported in our tel
egrams, but certainly he icould with
great effect have brought (the strug

j .XprovIng: Fraud
, Lit... ! II . I. - . . . '
''During Us speech on the tariff Sen
ator Beck spoke of the arrears of pen
sions act as one- conceived - in sin.
brought forth in iniquity and passed
by fraud.i -This led Ingalls, who was
the sponsor;, of the bill when it passed,
to introduce: a resolution endorsing
and approving it. Wheo his resolu
came up MVoortiees, who we sus
pect is j joh ilie niake," spoke' in favor
of endorsing the . mesau and Mr,
Peck repl ied. , He said.i nat, i n Jhe
passage of the bill . refeecl . to, iboth
houses of Ccingress were imposed up
on by a' set; of 'fnsioii claim agents,
who devised the scheme of peusiou
arrearages for their'own benefit, and
that if its actual cost had been foretold,
or in jaiiyi wayjndicated at the time,
the bill would not have received the
support of any of the members who
voted for it! He gave an t outline of
the progress of the bill, showing that
it passed the House under a suspen
sion of the rules, which cutoff debate;
that the measure which passed was
not the one recommended by the com
mittee, but one that had not been be
fore the committee; that the question
was pressed, for action upon the eve
of an adjournment; when the members
were going home for re-election, and
were indisposed to vote against a pro
position which, upon its face, had on
ly a patriotic object. The bill, al
though! not understood, was allowed
to pass without dissent. He quoted
from the debates upon it to show that
the maximum which any member be
lieved it would cost was $30,000,000,
while 19,000,000 or $20,000,000
were the highest figures mentioned in
the Senate. He asked whether the
Senate did not believe a fraud was
committed when he, as one member
was iuduced to vote upon the meas
ure which subsequent developments
had shown to be entirely unwarrant
ed. He assumed that no member
imagined that the results of that leg
islation would be what they are, aud
if it had been intimated (what is now
stated by the Commissioner of Pen
sions to be the fact) that ten percent,
of the total arrears would be paid out
in fraudulent claims, not a vote would
have ben given for the bill.- He re
minded Senators that when the bill
came from the House to the Senate
the latter body -was flooded with pe
titions with printed headings purpor
ting to come from various parts of the
country. ; These, he asserted, were
gotten up by pension agents in Wash
ington; and by them circulated thro
the country fur signatures to be used
as pressure upon the Senate. Mr.
Beck reiterated that Congress was de
ceived by a scheme concocted by in
terested outsiders, and asked Mr. In
galfs if he did not believe when he
voted for it that the act would; not
iuvolve an aggregate expediture of
over 19,000,000, or, at the utmost,
. Mr. j lugalls replied that such a
statement was imputed to him, but he
bad never made any such a statement.
What he did say was that if those al
ready upon the roll who had been en
titled were given arrears they had
earned up to the time of the passage
of the bill, it would amount to about
19,000,000, and that if the previous
ly existing limitations were removed,
no definite statement of the total cost
could be made, as the number of f'u
- , : L -
ture aDUiications couui not be lore-
seen. ( i '
Mr.; Beck insisted that no law ought
to stand on tlie statute book afford
ing means for such gross and shame
less frauds as this does. Aud to this
Mr. lugalls replied that he would
have voted for it, knowing that it
would cost five hundred millions or
eveo d billion of dollars, and that he
endorsed it to-day. So here isauieas
ure which was passed under the no
tion that it would cost but 30,000,
or thereabouts, aud whicii it is uow
estimated witl cost fully ten times as
much,1 that is to be endorsed 1
It was passed as a disgraceful piece
of demagog uery ou the part of the
Northern leaders. The Southern Dem
ocrats! who voted fbHt were doubtless
actuated bv I other consideration's.
They, thought it would appear mean
for them to withhold thirty million
ot dollars as pension money trora
Northern soldiers, and so they vtrted
for themeasure; But the Northern
promoters of - the scheme were only
seeking to catch, tlie . soldiers' vote;
that was idli And iu doing that they
have opened the door of the treasury
wide so w)de that already one hun
dred million of dollars have been ta4
keu out; oil which not one quarter has
gone to "the poor soldier."
ii S H uai. uiai uu, jLeiu ocrat except .
jalqne the erratic Voorhees will stand
before the country as approving the
fraud. 1 Itj is not right.' The substi
tutes who were hired by thrNortherp
conscripts l or drafted mth, to take
their place in the ranks of the Feder
al army, are not entitled to this boun
ty at the expense of the country. The
law ought to be repealed, not endors?
ed. Thelfraud is now ex nosed the
trick of its passage is evident. It ,
conld not have been adopted had Con-
gress been able to see into the future,
and now to endorse it is to endorse
fraud and to be utterly regardless of
the people's rights.
When are we to return to the peri
od of low taxes and an economical
government, if oceans of treasure are
to be expended in such wise as this?
Southern IDemocrats have heretofore
not asserted themselves in such mat
ters. We trust that the days of their
compliance with an assumed public
sentiment have ended, and that we
may have an issue on this question
which. will commend itself to the fa-
1 i- ,.
vor of our people. The opposition to
this piece of iniquitous jobbery is not
confined alone to Democratic ranks:
Northern Republican papers denounce
it as. roundly as we ..do. We caunot
get out of the clutches of the protec
tion istsexcept by turning our backs
firmly on all of their wily schemes to
make a demand for public plunder.

nothing. Official pap' is the only

'I'm very unhappy about Frank,'
says busie s lather, as he walks his
room, half undressed, about midnight;
'he's out almost every night till after

'Why don't you ipeak to him your

There i more discussion about it
with a little tendency on the part of
each to lay the blame on the other.
Frank's father does not tell, however,
what he happens to know about
Frank's fashionable friends as theatre
goers, and about certain troubles in
which some of them have become in
volved that promised badly for busi
ness men and as husbands.
At hngth he makes up his mind to
speak to Frank.
'Frank, ray dear boy, why do you
go out every evening and stay out so
late as this?'
'Why father, it's not so very late ;
it's barely twelve o'clock
'That is late enough, and you are
out almost every night
'Well, father, I was with

left some of them behind me
Frank, I want tell you, you ought

And Frank's father retires from

to think that his influence over Frank

is gone, lie abdicated long ago in
favor of "the set" and "the set" felt
no resonsibility. It needed one more
to share the pleasures and the cost
of them. It recognized Frank's ca

the pomps and vanities of this world.
It cared very little whether Frank
did well or if he filled his place in
the set. It-did talk a good deal when
Frank began to take much wine and
"makea fool of himself." The Stronss
turned the cold shoulder to him, and
