A few days Vfflpb llr. Geo. C. Gorliam,

lively that the Pr4sident favored the !
coalition movement in North Carolina,
and desired the election of all the candi
dates on the coalition ticket. This letter
of Mr. Goihajn's was printed in circular
form and copies of it have been dJstribn
ted broadcast over North Carolina by the
internal revenue and other Federal offi
cials. - j - i
. The following extract is from the reply
of Cook : j .
'The candidate ;ftr Judge o. the

committee, iwas organized for the pur
pose of destroying the Republican par
ity, opposing prohibition and temper
ance legislation. I am informed that
letters are now being sent to each coun
ty in the State calling for the names
of postmasters who either oppose or
do not actively support the coalition
movement, with a view to their speedy
removal. A wholesale decapitation is
proposed. 1 he victims are earnest
and honest Republicans, who have too
much honor and spirit to submit to
the commands of arrocrant, inflated.
self-constituted leaders. If the Pres
ident allows this to be done, it will
not comport with: your declaration
that he does not use public offices as
rewards or punishhients. Had; pro
nounced Republicans of character been
t nominated we would have carried the
State beyond a doubt, but there is no
prospect tor the success of thecoalition
ticket. The bottom has dropped out,
the bubble has burgled, the contribu
tions from Mr. HubbelTs committee,
and the assessments from revenue of
ficials can't save it.j If any man from
North Carolina tells you or President
Arthur to the contrary, he is either
after office or campaign money."

Oue of the worst "sign? of the time
to be discovered jnst now among us is
the tendency of 'the poor to grow
Poorer and the rich richer. Attempts
have often been made j to deny. that
this thefijet, but theslern logic ot
events" demonstrates it in a way voo
palpable J:o! bo concea
ed. In any
country a jdi vision into
a verv rich
rand verv roor class is an element of
danger; in a republic ike ours the
danger is especially formidable.. Can
any intelligent observer of American
character and habits of living suppose
that the large majority of the Ameri
can people will permit the wealth of
me nation to De so uiviaeu mat, wuhb
a small minority absorb the larger
share of that wealth, the masses of the
people will rest quiet and content if
their industry will . bring for them
selves and families only ia bare supply
of the commonest necessariesof life,
with no hope of improvement, with
the assurance that, squalor and want
and the degredation of having only
the meanest clothing to wear must be
their lot in all the hopeless future?
The Boston Star remarks :
"We are in considerable danger of
having two classes here, the rich and
the poor, between which a wide gulf
is to be fixed. .New York is more fa
vorably situated to illustrate such an
unwelcome theory than any other city
in the Union. A number of the cler
gy of that city have of late been ex
pressing themselves in the columns of
the newspapers in a way to place the
apprehensions .on the ground of al
most positive certainty. All of them
seem to confess the fact that a gulf
does indeed yawn between the two ex
tremes of society. 1 he question na
turally arises is this, state of things
a necessary and an evitable condition
of social life, or is it owing to causes
which cau be removed by human skill,
so that the rich shall not be extrava
gantly rich nor the poor poor to des
titution Also, can this change be
made without resource; to the crimes
of communism or dependence upon
the fallacies of socialism ? Unques
tionably it can. The laws that gov-
ern the distribution ol property at
present favor accumulation, they can
as readily be made to promote diffu
sion. For instance, a law requiring
every maker of a will to distribute all
he owns above a certain amount to at
least a given number of inheritors, in
proportiou to the amount of the pro
perty bequeathed, would of itself stop
any continuance of those vast fortunes
that become a danger, iu the course
of time, in a country having institu
tions, habits and modes of thinking
such as prevail in the United States.
Gen. Leach has written a letter com
plaining that the report of his speech
at Raleigh by the reporter of the News
and Observer did him great injustice,
by making him say that Ransom and
Cameron "drank and frolicked togeth
er in Washington." He denies using
any such language,, and proceeds to
pay the following compliment to Gen.
Ransom : j
"I have known Ransom well for
thirty years, and intimately for ten
years, and I never saw him take a
glass of wine at a dinner or any social
party, and the idea of Ransom's "frol
icking" is too ridiculously absurd to
"Truth to tell, 1 have never known
Ransom to do or say anything iucom-
paiioie wun me dignity ot a oenator
or the honor ot a gentleman. Proud
of his State and devoted to her people
and their best interests, and distin
guished for his fine presence, his tal
ents and his courtly bearing, he stands
in the Senate Chamber the peer of any
of his colleagues, and is regarded
there as I regard him, and as thou
sands of his friends in the State regard
him, as an honor to the Senate aud hi
The reporter, however, insists th
although he may not have given Gen.
Leach's exact words, j he "fairly and
substantially" reported what he said.
Mr. E. J. Hale in the Home and
Ltemocrat quotes two items from North
ern papers as follows : The darkey ex
senator Bruce, of Mississippi, now
Register of the" Treasury, in Wash
ington, has a sou and heir, whom he
has named Rbscoe Coukling Bruce,
and whom he has provided with a
white French nurse ! -William Hunt,
a colored porter on a Pullman car
running between Boston and New
York, was arrested in Boston Satur
day evening for bigamy. He has one
wife in New York, where he makes
his home; and another in Bostou.
Roth are white women.
Consistent. In the Senate of 1879,
Gen. Leach opposed every measure pro
viding far the election of county commis
sioners and justices of the peace by the
people. See the; Senate; journal page 70,
119 133, and yet he shed crocodile tears
in the Radical convention here last Sat
urday, because the liberties of the people
are taken from them by not allowing
i lliem to vote for commissioners aud magistrates.
Mr. Stephen, C. Johnston, of j this
city, furnished juaiwitn a printed
pamphlei prepared iby him contain
ing a description and abstract of j title
of the famous lieed mine of Cabarrus.
It was submitted by Mr.' Johnston to
the trustees of the will of Wm. Hirst,
now in possession -of the property.
The report givv great encouragement
for the btd ief that tlie mine will yield
rich results lxlh in vein and surface
workings.) j The property -consists of
780 acres tipoit which are three veins,
and a large stretch of alluvial sands
with an average depth to bed rock of
two to three feet from which have al
ready been taken the 'largest land
heaviest nuggets of almost pure jgold
ever found iu the United States, j Be
low is a list of them i -
Weight of pieces of gold, found on
Reed property, of which a record is
made, as 'follows': I
(( , ;
Value of gold,; $27,840.
Mr. Johnston adds :
"I am reliably, informed that niany
other pieces of large size, from tjiree
to five pounds, were found prior land
subsequent to the dates given. The
first known gold discovered ononis
property was in 1799, but as I can
not furnish the weight will only, say
that it is supposed to have been worth
between seven and eight thousand
dollars. And since the last date given
above, amongst ' the various nuggets
found, one soldi for eight hundred
dollars. I j
He recommends the .working of the
veins, and especially of these alluvial
sands, and thinks that to bring water
from Rocky River, one mile distant,
or from Buffalo Creek, between two
and throe miles, for their working
would amply repay the expenditure.
The statement! is a most creditable
one anu contains certincates irom
prominent gentlemen of Charlotte as
to his experience aud capacity.
This Looks like Ilusincss.
There 13 a civil service reform as

isfied with the party platform pro
fessions on that subject desire to know
from each candidate for Congresjust
how he stands and propounds to him
the following pertinent questions in
writing to which they demand a writ
ten reply: '
1. Do you regard a reform iu the
civil administration as necessary, and
as a work which should be promptly
entered upon ? . j
2. What, in your view, should be
the nature, extent and practical meth
ods of that reform, aud what support,
if elected, will you give to it?
3. Do you think that the patronage
of the departments and great offices
should be apportioned among mem
bers of Congress, or be interfered with
by them ; or on the contrary, do you
hold that vacancies in subordinate
places should be filled by the proper
executive officers appointing the most
worthy applicants, to be ascertained
4. As the ore hundred and sixty
fourth sectiou of the Revised Statutes
now requires all persons to be exam
ined before being appointed in any of
the departments thus declaring that
influence and recommendations are
inadequate tests, do you or not think
that the various applicants should be
examined, not as now, independently
and privately, but together'and pub
licly, so that the most worthy of those
offering may be secured? Or, in other
words, do you or not favor competi
tive examinations? Will you support
the Pendleton bill (copy inclosed) or
any similar measure for enforcing
5. Do you justify the promise of
places on the part of members of
Congress for political support or the
use of their influence at the depart
ments aud elsewhere in order to se
cure offices for their favorities ? Or do
you, on the contrary, condemn Such
practices and purpose yourself; to
avoid them ?

tice of coercing those in the public

The Tragic End of a Bitter Personal
Knoxville, Tenn., Oct 19. This
morning at a few minutes after 10
o'clock Gen. Joseph A. Mabry, Major
Thomas O'Conner and Joseph A.
Mabry, Jr., were kiljed in a shooting
affray. The difficulty began yesterday
afternoon by Gen. Mabry's attacking
Major O'Conner and threatening to
kill him. This was at the fair grounds,
and O Conner told Mabry it was not
the place to settle their differences.
Mabry then told O'Conner he should
not live. It seems that Mabry was
armed and O'Conner was riot. The
cause of the difficulty was an old feud
about the transfer of some property
from Mabry to O'Conner. Later in
the afternoon Mabry sent word to
O'Conner that he would kill him on
sight. This morning Major O'Conner
was standing in the door of the Me
chanic's National bank, of which he
was president, Gen. Mabry and anoth
er gentleman walked down the street
on the opposite side from the bank.
O'Conner stepped into the bank, pro
cured a shot gun, took delibrate aim
at Gen. Mabry and fired. Mabry fell
dead, being shot in the left side. As
he fell O'Couner fired again, the shot
taking effect in Mabry's thigh. O'Con
ner then reached into the bank and
got another shot gun. About this
time Joseph A. Mabry, Jr., son of
Gen. Mabry, came rushing down the
street. He was not seen by Major O'
Conner until he was within forty feet
of him- when he fired a shot from a
pistol, the ball taking effect in O'Con
ner's right breast passing through the
body near the heart. The instant
Mabry fired O'Conner turned and
discharged his shot gun at him, the
load taking effect iu young Mabry s
right breast and side. He fell pierced
with 20 buckshot and almost instant
ly O'Conner fell dead without a strug
gle. Young Mabry trd to rise but
fell back dead. ' The whole tragedy
occurred within two minutes and
neither of the three spoke after he
was shot. Gen Mabry had about 30
buckshot in his body. A bystander
was painfully wounded in the thigh
with a buckshot and another was
wounded in the arm ; four other men
had their clothes pierced by buckshot.
The affair caused great excitement
and Gay street was thronged with
thousands of people. Gen. Mabry
aud his son Soseph were acquitted
only a few days ago of the murder of
Major Lusby and Don Lusby, father
and son, whom they Killed a few
weeks since. Wra. Mabry was killed
by Don Lusby last Christmas. Major
Thomas O'Conner was president of
the Mechanics National bank here,
and was the wealthiest - man in the
State. Col. E. J. Sanfard, the vice-
president, takes immediate control of
