. R&fAted, That we are i$ favor of the en

that we denounce the present tariff laws las
grossly unequal, unjust and jucious. ; e
favor such a revision of the tariff as will
produce a revenue sufficient for ti e econom
ical support of the government, with such
incidental protection as win give 10 domes
tic manufactures a fair competition with
those of 'foreign production That there
should Jbe an immediate repeal of all jlaws
imposing a direct tax for the support 1 of
the government of the United States, but if
it should prove impracticable to abolish
the internaffevenue system with all i$ at

of sp amending the Lai? that -the reTenue
officers w bono w receive in salaries in North

been endorsed uy ine iemocratic pany,

election, in the year 1881, having by an
ovef whelming majority voted against: pro
hibition, andthe Supreme Court having
decided that the prohibition act is not and
never has been a law, we regard the matter

HOW TO ORffAlTIZE.
TheJ)mocrntic Executive Committee
of Rowan County resolved ' nnnuimously
at their nice ting on the 9tli of September,
1882, that the plau of organization which
has been adopted by the State Democrat
ic Execntive Committee be carried oat to
the letter in Rowan, and that the Execu
tive Committee,! the township conimtttees
and the sub-township committees I make
every effort to see that this plan is carri
ed out. It is aa follows :
1. Let there be a County Committee
composed of active working, xealons, in
telligent men, ' !
2. Let there be Township Committees
composed of the very best men tit the town
ship. Right here the work is to be done,
mud hence the absolute necessity for the
very best meu the party lias in the town
ship, e j j
3. Let each township be dividt d up into
convenieut districts, with known, well
defined boundaries, as far as possible,
such as roads, creeks, &c, each commit
teeman taking one sub-di vision under his
spccal charge.1 Iu each sub-division let
there be a sub-committee of three, or four,
or live, or as many as uecd be, with its
proper township committeeman at its
head, and appoiuted by hin. This sub
committee is to report toj its chairman
and operate under his directions.
4. Let each Bub-couiiuittee, by the 7tl
of October, prepare two lists of all voters
in its sab-division, oue for; its own use,
the other to be given to its chairman.
5. Let each sub-comiuitteeman and
each township coramitteeranu examine the
registration books from time to time, nod
check off the voters who have not regis
tered, and then use every effort to get
Democratic voters to register.
G. On the !4tli of October, let each sub
committee meet with its chairman aud
check off the Voters who have not regis
tered, and make arrangements for induc
ing them to register. On the 23th Octo
ber let them meet again for the same pur
pose.' ' ... ;
On election day let the township and
sab-committees be early at the polling
places with their lists of voters. ' Let the
cames of voters be checked off as they
vote, and at 1 o'clock let a list of absent
Democratic voters te made by the town
ship chairman and given to the snb-com-mitteemeu,
who win at once proceed to
ascertain if the absentees cannot be in
duced to come to tlie polls and vote. For
this purposa the chairniau of the township
committee mast hare provided I suitable
conveyances 'ad have them constantly
ready to hand.
If this simple plan be carried out, our
majority in the coming .election would
not be a vote less than 30,000. It must

pat to root again the reveuuera with their
' 105,000 negroes. If we organize properly
we will do it, for there are 190,000 white
voters in the State. AU we have to do is
to bring them out. There are 50,000 who
have never voted. Of this. 50,000, nine
out of every ten will, vote .the Democratic
ticket if they go to the polls. Let us see
tUtii they get there. Nevis-Observer.

Excavation of an Indian -M.
1 Spainhour, D,D. S., oriJtnoirKJ, C,
March Mth; im ton the Farm of E.V.
Michaux, Esq., near Joh9 Hivtr, Jn
Burke CouutyN. C. i ':-
i In a conversation with Mri Miclianx on
Indian curiosities, lie iuformed me that
there' was au Indian mound on his farm
which wa&formerly bf considerable height
but had been gradually i pHwed down :
that several mounds in the teighborbood
had been excavated, and! nothing of in
terest fouud iu them. 1 1 asked permis
sion to examine this' mouu4,whiclr was
granted, and npon .investigation the fol
lowing facts were reveal : . 1 '
UKn reaching the place,lts!arpened a
stick foar or five feet in length aud ran
it down in the earth at several places, and
finally struck a rock about eighteen inches
below i the surface, which, on digging
down was found to be smooth. 011 top, ly
ing horizontally upon solid earth, about
! 18 inches above the bottom of the grave,
18 iuches length and lb inches 111 width,
and from two to three iuches in thickness,
with the coruers rounded.
Not fiuding auy thing under this rock, I
then made au excavation in the south of
the grave, aud soon struck another rock,
which upon examination proved to be in
front of the remains of a human skeleton
in a sitting posture. The boucs of the
fingers of the right hand were resting on
this rock, and 011 the rock near the hand
was a small stone about five inches loug;
resembling a tomahawk or Indian hatch
et. Upon a further examination many of
tho boues were fouud, though in a very
decomposed condition, and upon expos
ure to tho air soon crumbled to pieces.
The heads of the bones, a considerable
portion of the skull, maxillary bones,
teeth, neck boues, and the vertebra, were
in their proper places, though the weight
of the earth above them hud driven them
down, yet the entire frame was so pel feet
that it was an easy matter to truce all
the boucs; the boucs of the ciauium were
slightly inclined toward the East. Around
the neck were found coarse beads that
seemed to be of some bard substance,
resembled chalk. A small lump of red
paint about the size of au egg was found
near the right side of this skeleton, the
sutures of the! cranium indicated the sub
ject to have been twenty-five or twenty -"eight
years bf age, aud its top rested
about twelve! iuches below the mark of
1 made a further excavation toward the
west of this grave and found another
skeleton, similar to the first, in a sitting
posture facing the cast. A lock was ou
the right, ou which the boues ot the light
hand were resting, and on this rock was
a tomakawlTwhicli hud been about seven
inches long, but was broken into two
pieces, and was much better finished thau
the first. Beads were also found around
the neck of this one, but much smaller and
of finer quality thau thoe on the neck of
the first. The material, however, seems
to be the same. A much larger amount:
of paiut was fouud by the side of this than
the first. The boues indicated a person!
of large frame, who I think was about!
fifty years of age. Everything about
about this one had the appearance of su
periority over the first; the top of the.
skull was about six iuches below the
mark of the plow. ' I
I continued the examination, and after
diligent search, found nothing at the;
north side of the grave ; but on reaching
the east, found another skeleton iu the
same posture as the others facing the
west. On the right side of this was a rock
on which the bones of the right ham
were renting, nud on the rock was also a
tomahawk, which hud been about eight
inches in length, tut was broken iuto
three pieces,: and was composed of much
better material, aud better finish thaii
the others. Beads were also fouud ou
the neck of this, but much smaller aud
fiuer thau those of the others. A larger
amount of paiut than both of the others
was found' uear this one. The top of the
ci ainum had been mured by the plow. j
The bones indicate a person of forty years
of age. i. j
There was no appearance of hair dis
covered, besides, tho smaller bones were
almost entirely ! decomposed, and would
crumble when taken from their bed in
the earth. : These two circumstances,
cou( led with the fact that the farm op
which this grave was fouud, was the first
settlement in that part of tho country!,
the date of the first deed made from Lord
Granville to John Perkins running back
about one lieudred and fifty years, (the
laud still belonging to the desceudents bf
the same family that first occupied it)
would prove beyond doubt that it is a
very old grave. j ,
The grave waft situated due east and
west, in size! about uiue by six feet, tliie
line ifing distinctly marked by the dif
ference in the color of the soil. It was
dug in rich black loam, and filled around
tlie bodies with white or yellow sand,
which 1 suppose was carried from tl-e
river bank two hundred yards distant.
The skeletons approximated the walls bf
the grave, and 'contiguous to tneiii was
a dark colored earth, and so decidedly
different was this from all surrounding it.
both in quality and odor, that the line bf
the bodies could be rendiiy traced. J ne
odor of this decomposed earth, which had
been flesh, was simitar to clotted blood
and would adhere in lumps when coni
piessed in tile hand, i
This was not the crave of Indian
warriors j in those we find pots made bf
earth or stone, and all the implements bf
war, for the warrior had an idea, mat al
ter he arose from the dead, he would need
in the "hunting grounds beyond," hi
bow and arrow, war hatchet aud scalping
knife. j j
The facta set forth will doubtless con
vince every Mason who will carefully read
the account of this remarkable burial that
the American Indians were in fiossessioai
of, at least, Rome of the mysteries of our
order, and iti was evidently the grave f
Masons, and the three highest officers in
a Masonic Lodge. The grave was sitna
ted due east and west, an altar erected
in the centre; the snth, west, and east
were occupied, the north was not; imple
ments of authority near each body, the
difference in the qnality of the Wads, the
tomahawks in one, two and. three pieces,
and the difference that the bodies were
placed from the surface, indicate lyond
doubt that these j erous had been buried
by Masons, and those, - too, that under
stood what they were doine. J -
I Will some learned Masou nn ravel this
mystery, and inform the Masonic world
how they obtained so much Masonic in
formation 1 l- j -j--jV.V :

01 tue army nas ueciueu 10 semi 10 ine
sections of the country where. tlys'indus

Jthe occurauce of the frost, and sent to all
telegraph stations in tlie districts threat
ened. It is suggested that parties inter

prompt diffusion of these warning after
they are received at the stations. This
can be done by a courier at a slight ex
pense. The warniugs will cover tlie pe
riod from September 1st to November 1st,

iug frost shall have occurred and made
further notice unnecessary, - '
Messrs. Pace &c Gorrell proprietors of
Pace's Warehouse, ever on the lookout
to subserve the best interest of their pat
rons, have opeued a correspondence with
the Chief Signal officer at Waslangtou
with a view, and for the purpose of giv
ing the information of the approaching
frost, to the planters of this section.
Their plan as we learn from Capt. Ed.
Pace, is to get the army sky rocket, and
notify the post masters aud through them
the people at the different offices iu
this aud adjoiuing counties, so that they
can bo ou the look out at ; o'clock
(sharp) on the day, date and hour to be
hereafter named, and if thu: signal can
be seen when sent up from the Reservoir
here, then a plan will be adopted aud
scut out in circular form to communicate
tho frost signal. This is a step iu tho
right direction, and oue we are sure will
bo appreciated. If such a plan lirtd been
adopted lastjenr, thousands could have
leeii saved to the farmers of this section.
A Tennessee llorror.
A Sheriff and Hl Deputy Kdlcd and Oth
ers Wounded and a Train Seised by
Chattanooga, Sept. 14. Tho Sheriff
and his deputy of this county were shot
aud killed to-day while enroute to Knox
ville with a prisoner. John Taylor two
years ago killed Capt. Fletcher on the
Tennessee river. Ho escajied but was
finally captured and brought here. He
had several trials and at the last term of
the Court was sentenced to ten years
hard labor in the penitentiary. He ap
pealed to the Supreme Court which is in
session at Knoxville, and his case was to
have come up to-day at noon. Sheiiff
Cate and deputy Conway took the east
Tennessee train with Taylor, who was
handcuffed. Several men boarded the
train at Sweetwater or Philadelphia,
about 75 miles from here, and while the
train was between there and Loudon,
deliberately shot Cate and Conway dead
and wounded another man. They then
released the prisoner aud took charge of
the train, running it through to Loudon,
and at Lenoir .station John Taylor aud
his brothers and Andy, got oft and forci
bly taking some horses, left for the moun
tains. John Taylor was wounded in the
arm. This city is in intense excitement. A
posse of thirty men with Springfield rifles
left on a special train on the Cincinnati
Southern for Kinston, and another posse
will leave here overland. A posso has
already left Kinston, and another from
Londou. Cate was Sheriff two weeks.
He was one of the most popular meu in
the city, and was about 50 years old, and
leaves a large family. Conway was about
20, and w8 prominent iu local politics.
Such excitement has not been seen in
Chattanooga since the war.
A sjiccial train will bring the bodies of
tho victims here to-night. The shooting
took place about 4 o'clock.
Leached Ashes. Leached ashes
re good for almost any crop, but
should be applied with other fertiliz
er thut contain vegetable substances,
like barn yard manure: thus applied
on most of soils, and for nearly all
crops twenty-five, cents a bushel
would be cheaper than commercial
fertilizers. Fifty bushels of ashes ap
plied to an acre of land in connection
with two cords of good stable manure
would produce better results for most
erons than 150 bushels applied 'with
out other fertilizer-, or five cords of
stable manure applied with no other

A Bold Swindle.
A"bold attempt to swindle the Knights
bf Houor has been made by one J. F.
Morton, of Stanly county. From an ac
connt published in the Concord Sun it
seems that Morton went to Texas, repre
sented himself to be "F. A. Morton" aud
insured in the K. of H. in that State for
his Brother "J. F. Morton," for $ 2,000.
He then returned to North Carolina aud
notified the Texas lodge of the death of
his brother J F. Morton. A certificate
to that effect signed J. A. Morgan, A. A.
Morgan aud D. L. Witherspoon, duely
authenticated by Felix Klutz, magistrate,
accompanied the notice. Tho Texas
lodge susjiected fraud and wrote here for
information. It turns out to be an un
mitigated swindle. The names signed to
the certificate were forgeries, aud so was
the magistrates authentication a bold
forgery. A little circumspection saved
the lodge from a big swindle. Morton
was a nested and committed to Jail but
the scotuidrel mauaged in Borne way to
escape and is at large. Look out for him
His name is J, F. Morton, Stanly county.

Dr. York have been together. York
still, claims lo be a Democrat but has
been brought to acknowledge that he
intends to vote the entire Republican
State ticket. Maj. liobbins declines
to speak of the joint discussions fur

nently satisfactory to himself.. He is

says no formtr canvass of the district
ever looked better to him. A gentle

The lale Senator Hill was a man
of mental power. When earth's hon
ors were withering on his brow and
earth's applause was dying away up
on his ears so soon to be deaf to all
mundane noises, this most nobly en
dowed of Georgians this great mas
ter of the hallsof debate left this tes
timony iu his will:
"1 now give and bequeath to my
wife and children that which some of
them now possess, and which I assure
them in full view of death, is far rich
er than gold, aud more to be desired
than all 'human honors. God is a
living God and Christ came iuto the
world to save sinners. I beg them to
have faith in Jesus, for by this faith
alone can they be saved."
Such a death and such a testimony
are worth to the world fen million
times what the frothy declarations
aud noisy scepticism of all the poor
and miserable free-thinkers of the;
world are worth. Alexander Stephens
is" another sincere believer in the pow4
cr and truth of Christianity. d
The tariff commission docs not dare
do its duty. Congress gave it life
because it did not itself know how to
deal with the tariff question. Con
gress, therefore, does not know wheth
er it should adopt a tariff for revenue
or a protective tariff. It would not
be a reckless man who would wager
that the commission does not dare to
present Congress two schedules one
based on a revenue system and the
other on the protective theory. Bos
