The Secret Conclave.
A forcible reminder of the dark days
of 1808 was the gathering at the Mt.
Vernon Hotel, in this placeon Hon-
4ay night, ot a tew oia moss backed
Republican leaders, interspersed with a
sprinkling of negroes and white rene
gades. J Among the number present were Dr.
Holt and Judge Furches of Statesville,
Rawlins and Cummings. of Asbeville;
jb white negro, Coleman, from Concord,
jancyof this place, John Nichols,
rnember of Congress from Raleigh
Tistrict, and a mysterious personage
f rom New York, who probably for good
reasons did not put his name on the
hotel register. He might have been
a representative from the house of
Ajbrton, Bliss & Co., and he might not.
AX any rate he was in close communion
ith the faction aforementioned.
- The boys want "boodle" and they
would not hesitate to entertain a rep
resentative from any republican source
having t at their- dispo a'. Nor will
they be slow to make the necessary
to obtain it; and it is very cer-
at money basrs. Morton, who is
now endeavoring to enforce the collec
tion of the fraudulent, repudiated
b nds of the State, will exact of them
p edgej of a substantial nature in that
di rectfon. ,
W warn the people of this mischief,
adding to the .warning the assurance
tljjai it is k matter that should -claim
their most earnest attention. Our
elections hav) heretofore been fair and
uhcorrupted, and every effort should
be employed to resist the influence of
those who now seek to debase them to
personal and party ends.

The Cotton Basrjw Honopoly.
If things continue like; they are at
present; the farmers will be putting up
their cotton this fall in white sheeting,
instead of the old time lagging. 'The
reason for this is the advance, in the
price of bagging. 4 syndicate, with
head quarters at " S. touis, h;ts got
control of 4he bagging industry of the
United States, and has run the price
of nagging up to ten cents per yard.
Bagging that could be bought last
year forO1 cents, cannot be procured
for than less than ten cents. It is
merely an example of the evils of mo
nnnnlv. The farmers will do well to
take the matter in hand at once and
devise an acceptable substitute for
bagging, so as to protect themselves
from the exorbitant demands of this
mononolv. It is out of the question
for our merchants to make any profit
whatever, on the sale of bagging, and
the farmers should not abuse them for
the high price demanded. The blame
lies alone witli lung .Monopoly nar
Our numerous cotton factories can
head this nionopoly if they will, or at
least we think they can. Can they
not run a part of their spinners and
looms on a very coarse but strong ar
ticle of cotton fabric, made of spot
and inferior cotton, and undersell the
monopolj ? Or, rather than be impos
ed on, let the old time cards and spin
ning wheel come to ' the front again,
as they did during the late war. Men
and; women will fight rather than sub
mit to a gross personal wrong. Let
them resolve to wotk rather than be
enslaved by greedy monopolies.
If any additional laws , for the pun
ishment of this class of offenders are
necessary, they should be speedily en
acted Most unremitted efforts should
be made to discover such offenders, and
the most prompt and terrible punish
ment inflicted on them when found.
It should be regarded as the highest
crime on the calendar, and as meriting
theswiftest and most fearful doom, es

Mr. Dockery has declared that if Mr.
Alexander of Mecklinburg, had got the
nomination for Governor instead of
himself, that he would have given him
a cordial support. And yet it is well
knowu that Mr. Alexander is a life-
ong Democrat. The Charlotte Chron
icle i says "he is a Democrat of Demo
crats." It looks odd, to say the least
of'itfhow a republican candidate for
Governor can declare his willingness to
support a moss-backed Democrat. It
is accounted for in the fact that Mr.
Alexander is popular with the farmers,
and that Dockeryis only trying to ap
propriate that popularity to himself.
How else can-it be accounted for?
The Republicans were in power in
North Carolina for several years after
the war. They had everything their
own way. JJoes the reader remember
their manner of conductingthe affairs
of the State? If not. bv all means
fincLout. It is a chapter worth read
ing and remembering. The promises
of Republican candidates who may
speak to the people are not worth a
ent. Individual members may mean
to be fair and just, but as a member of
a party they icount as only one. - The
party is the same now that it was
when in power, and will be the
if jut in power again.

Two Opinions. 1
Civil-service reform don't stand irerv
high amongst some of our promiijien't'
noiuicians ana stausmeu. oenator
Vance is reported as saying, "No civil-
service reform for me. When I fight
a manaiidhiiu lick his scalp is miie."
This recalls a speech made by Mr. Da
vid 1. Littler, Illinois member of the
Republican National Committee, at a
meeting of the Illinois Republican
Stnte Committee two years ago. Jut.
Littler, after congratulating Senator
Vance, who had just before denoudced
the reform said: "I don't believe! in
civil service reform in any sense, juid
it is my view that the Republican par
ty ought to take the position that the
Civil-Service Reform Law should! be
repealed, and that all Republicans in
office under this administration should
be turned out. Tshouts of "That's
ht!" That's business?" and ap
plause. I will sign the petition! of
any Democrat who wants to get imv
signature for the removal of a Repub
lican now holding office, on the ground
that he is a Republican, and has; no
right to the loaves and fishes under this
administration: Applause, and a
voice, "Amen." Few Democrats ore
as candid as Senator Vance, and fewer
Republicans are as bold as Mr. Littler.
It is very obvious, however that Civil-
Service is not in high favor with poli
ticians, and. that there is practical un
animity of opinion in both parties, out
side office-holders, on the subject. The
two opinions we have quoted fairly liil-
lustrate the fact. Wilmington Messen
The felicities of the Republican sit
uation are touchingly illustrated by he
statement of Senator Plumb of Kan
sas, who is reported in our Washing
ton dispatches to have said that if the
beet farmers of his State are to iiccjppt
a 50 percent, reduction in the duty! on
sugar, they will insist on free fence
wire. If these Senators take their
view of the matter, the majority in the
Senate will be between the devil and
the deep sea.' To concede free fence
wire to the farmers is to concede that
protective taxes fall on the consumer,
and that the farmer is equallv enti
tied to free lumber for his buildings,
free steel for his plows, free salt for his
cattle, free bagging for his grain, free
blankets for his bed, free tin for his
roof and in short a free chance to man
age his own affairs without being tax
ed at every turn for the benefit of fa
vored ; manufacturers. Whichever
road the Republicans take they will
wish they had taken the other. JVjY;
