llalford arrived at the White House to
day at 2.45 p. in. from Deer Park. The
party looked rather weary ami dusty.
Postmaster General Wananiaker was in
waiting, and Secretary I'roctor was im
mediately summoned. There was no
regular Cabinet meeting, but within his
hour's stay at the White House the Pres
ident managed also to see Secretary
Tracy, Attorney General Miller, and
Assistant Secretary ISatchcller, and thus
gather an idea of the course of business
in most of the departments. No appoint
ments were forthcoming as the result of
these interviews; and a few minutes lie
forc 4 o'clock the party again catered
their carriages and were driven to the
liallimore and Ohio railroad station,
where they took the train for Philadel
phia. Treasurer Huston to-dav signed two

made by him.
The Surgeon General oftheMarine Hos
pital service this afternoon received the
following telegram from Feriiandina,
"The schooner Parkhurst from Mobile
is in (piarantine with four men sick. The
health officer, who has been aboard for
two days, says they have malarial lever
which yielded promptly to iiinine. All
arc free from fever now ; one died on the
passage. I judge from the Captain's de
scription of the symptoms and apjiear
anee of the body, that he died of conges
tive chill. The vessel put inhere in dis
tress, and will be kept under strict quar
antine until departure."
The Secretary of the Navy has notified
the president of the Columbia Iron
Works, of lialtimore, to have the gun
boat Petrel, recently tried by an official
board, painted and cleared ready for final
inspection, This is taken to mean that
the vessel is satisfactory and will lie ac
cepted by tae government. Pending final
action, however, the Secretary is consid
ering the claim by the company to the
effect that they were ready tor trial
thirty-three minutes before the boaid be
wail to take the records of the engines
which were during that jicrind at their
best. When the test was actually began
the engines had begun to fall off and lie-
fore the end of the run hail gone down
quite low. They argued that they were
entitled to credit for the performance ol
the ship thirty-three minutes before the
records were taken, and that an equal
amount of time lie taken from the cud oi
the four hours. In this case their indi
cated horse power would Ik' very near
1100, which is the requirement. This
claim is likely to be allowed, in which
case the penalties from this cause wil'
not amount to much. She has, howricr,
earned a large sum for the govcriincutin
time for penalties.
The report received to-d a. at the Bu
reau of Steam Engineeri"K ' the Navy
department from oue-'l theinspeetors on

Union iron win-As. of Sail Francisco, for

power developed by the shipiu her recent
olliei"' run will probably not be reported
Love 0,700 by the trial board in their
official report. The vessel worked beau
tifully, every part of her machinery mov
ing in crfcct order without the least
heating. She was run six hours instead
of four, as stipulated in the contract,
and she worked better in the last two
hours than she did at first, thus proving
her excellent staying qualities. Her
Siecd during the six hours averaged
about IS4 knots. If this be confirmed
by the official report the ship will have
failed to make the contract requirement
.of 7,000 horse power by 300, which wll
subject her builder to a penalty ol $;i(),000.
The boiler performance in this ship
has been in excess of that of tlie York
town in proportion. The contractors
dicl everything in their power to meet
the requirements of the contract, import
ing hand picked Welch coal lor use on
the trial. Tlie vessel was built on the
plans of the Naniwakan, an English
designed boat which had about twenty
four trials before she was accepted. It
is believed that the contractors will go
to congress for relief from the iienalties
on the ground that the plans for the
vessel were defective.
The Secretary of the Navy this morning
ordered that the officers and men of the
receiving ship New Hampshire, now at
Newport, K. I., lie taken from her and
put in camp on the island whilc'the ship,
which is in a very bad condition', is being
overhauled, cleaned and repaired.

A ten-inch brccch-loadiug gun was used
and the powder charges were supposed
to give a velocity of 1,475 feet to a 500

in the armor, and the larger part of it
was deflected. The second made a simi

Hahkisiu'RG. Pa., Septemlier 4. The
Democratic State convention assembled
here this morning.
After a recess J. B. Riley, of Schuylkill
county, was made permanent chairman
There" were no contests. The platform
was mid and adopted, the different plank
lieimr erected with nearly clieers.
I- oran, ol riiiinucipnia, presented a reso
lution which was unanimously adopted,
commending the course of Gladstone in
Ins attitude toward the Irish people
Edward A. Bigler, of Clearfield county
was nominated lor Mate i rcasurer on
first ballot and the convention adjourn
The platform declares:
1. That all powers not expressly
granted to the general government are
withheld and sacred ; the observance of
the rule of the construction contained in
the tenlh amendment to the constitution
itself is essential to the preservation of
the principles of home rule aud of pure
honest, and economical government
to the end that labor may not be rob-
Ih-'cI of the bread it has earned.
2. We applaud the action of President
vicveiano ami our Democratic repre
sentatives in (.ongress looking to tariff
tax reform ; and wc reaffirm thedec ara
tion of principles made by the Democracy
of the I nion at tit. Louis in 1888,
especially, that demanding the revision
and reduction ol tariff taxes tor the re
lief at once of American labor, Ameri
can industries, aud American tax-payers

ploymeut of labor, dccriasts wages, and
increases tliceost to consumers; and by
the admission of raw material tree of
duty in nil eases where it will cnlargeour
product, multiply our markets and in
crease demand for labor.
3. Wc regard trusts in whatever form
organized, as the result of the existing
monopoly tarui ; ano we demand a re
ieal of such tariff taxes as will enable
them to control domestic production by
unlawlul combination, and to extort
from the people exorbitant prices further
4. Wc accept the decision of the people
of rcuusylvama rendered Dy I lie ballot
on the prohibitory amendment, as a de
claration in favor of u reasonblc, just,
and effective regulation of the traffic in
ardent spirits. We hold that the agree
ment ol tfic Kepunliean party through
its representatives in the legislature to
the proposed prohibitory amendment to
the Constitution, and its defeat at the
polls in spite of a Republican majority of
80,000 votes, are facts that establish,
licvoud doubt, the hypocrisy ot the Re
publican leaders iu their treatment of the

A Cow That Ate Nails.
Murphv Advance: Our efficient butch
er, Mr. A. G. Vaughn killed a beet one
day last week and as his wife was engag
ed in cutting off the tallow, or fat, she
observed a bent horse shoe nail protrud
ing from the entrails. Mr. Vaughn upon
seeing it there examined tartner and
found the stomach of the cow to contain
twenty-two nails of various kinds and
sizes. This may seem unreasonable, but
nevertheless it is a fact. Air. Vaughn's
standing for veracity is unquestionable,
and he brought the nails to town and
gave tlirm to us. The cow at one time
belonged to a olneksmitn and it is
thought that while licking salt or eating
hay about his shop she had swallowed
the nails. Thev never had affected her
as she had been lively and all right up to
the time she was butchered.
The idea of making Queen Victoria a
colonel of German dragoons has struck a
good many ieople ns rather odd ; but it
is said thnt female officers were quite
common in the British army about 150
years ago. At that time, it is said, per
sons who had a pull on the government
were in the habit ot christening their
daughters by masculine names, getting
them commissions in the armv. and
drawing the pay for the service which the
girls did not perform. Col. Victoria, of
course, does not draw pay, butiscontent

The Mr. Morris mentioned in the sub
joined article was a brother of Mrs. R. F.
Drummond, of this city, and was a very
prominent citizen of Rcidsvillc. The will
of the deceased will lie contested by his
relatives and it is quite probable that
sonic very sensational matters will In

of the causes which produced Morris'
The Rcidsvillc correspondent of the
Danville Register writes, under date of
The bodv of Mr. I). F. Morris, who
died on Monday, August 10, was disin
terred yesterday and a post mortem ex
amination was held. Drs. Gregory, of
Greensboro, and Broughton and Italsley,
of this city, were the oicratiug physi
cians. It was thought at the lime of Mr.
Morris' death that he bad heart disease,
but the examination yesterday proved
thnt such was not the "ease, though his
left lung was very much affected which
rendered him susceptible to ihcdaiigerons
influences of chloroform. The physicians
thought that a much smaller quantity
would have caused death to a k-i soh in
his condition. The stomach will lie sent
to the State chemist to be analyzed, as
there are many who think there has pos
sibly been foul play.
The story, which is sensational enough
for a Police Gazette, runs about thus:
It appears that about a year ago, Miss
Cora May Scales was married, much
against her wishes, to Mr. Morris. She
has never lived with him asa wife. Some
time since she ersundcd him to insure
his life for $10,000, and to make the will
iu her favor. He did so and a day or
two later was found dead iu bed. Death
is said to have come about from the ef
fects of chloroform. Whether Morris ac
cidentally took an overdose or whether
his wile administered it for the purpose
oi Killing mm remains to be decided.
Relatives oi Mr. Morris intend contest
iug the will.

Wanted to Develop the Resour

Civil Service Reform.
Mountain Park Hotel, Hot Spkinrs,
N. C, Septemlier 4-. Sieeial. Gover
nor Daniel G. Fowle of this State has
been spending a number of days at this
hotel enjoying, what he says is the pleas
autest summer resort in the South. In
conversation with your correspondent
the Governor gave utterance to his opin
ion concerning the negro exodus from
North Carolina, and said that his opin
ion was the opinion of the ieoplc of the
State generally. It is, to the effect, that
the quicker North Carolina gets rid of
the negro population, just so soon will
she be able to induce hardy white men
from the North, West and other sections
of the union to come in here and settle.
Hut so long as 500,000 to (i 10,000 ne
groes live here, outside white men will
not conic in to any great extent. The
Northern man does not like the negro
neioiiiioh, a competitor
in labor or ill business. In fact, be thought
that the Southerners like the colored
man even better than do the people at
"We know," the Governor continued,
"that a negro will work ns little as lie-
possibly can. He has no desire to accu
mulate money. Dram work is his last
ambition, 1 o develop our resources w
must have men of enemy and thrift
Though the Anglo-Saxon race has some
ol the meanest characteristics hiiinaiiit
is heir to, it also has some of the noblest
traits. Its energy is unquestioned and
irom our mountains this energy can
wrest tlie valuable elements to the bet
terment and enrichment of the common
wealth. I should not care to sec the ne
gro population leave iu a body. The
present looked for exodus is about 50.-
000 a year, and during my administra
tion, I shall give the
Nlil.RO EVERY FACILITY
in my power to travel to other Slates.
Of course, 1 shall not want this to occur
to the detriment of any particular sec
tion. North Carolina is the white man's
country. The negro does not thrive in
its mountains anil bracing air. lie is
better fitted for work in the lowlands,
where the climate is warmer than in
Speaking of the coming of the North
ern man to the South the Governor said:
"A great deal of ignorance exists in te
North, not only about the resources
down this way, but about the attitude
of the Southern people toward Northern
men who come here. The narrow preju
dices supposed to have been produced in
the minds of Southerners by the war,
against the people of the North, and pop
ularly believed to still exist, despite the
yolums which have been spoken and
written to the contrary, may lie the
means of retarding a larger influx of
Northerners. Hut 1 am positive that no
prejudicial feeling does exist in the mind of
ANY TRI E SOUTHERNER.
1 know that the Northern men who
come here arc received cordially and are
welcomed upon the same plane socially
and in a business way as tliey would be
welcomed iu the North. People from the
North arc surprised at our resources,
and they are pleased with the cordiality
they find on every hand among the South
The conversation here drifted to the

THE Bl'II.DINQ BOOM.
New Houses (iolnir up on Every
Htreet In the City.
To those who travel little about the
city it docs not seem that the greatest
building boom Asheville has ever exicri
enccd is now in the full tide of its pro
gress. Yet such is the fact, The Citizen
is happy to note. On every street, al
most without a single exception, new
buildings of one class or another art
looming up, some in the highest style ol
architectural art and elegance; others
less pretentious ami assuming, but all
going to fill up the waste places to be
occupied by an active, industrious and
Most of these buildings mentioned are
private residences, while not a few are
for factory purposes, hotels, storehouses,
warehouses, ete. Notable among the
latter class of strticturesare the Harkins
McAfee, Reynolds' and Sienrs' blocks,
on Patton avenue, the Hull tobacco fac
tory, Coojicrs; new store house and
the electric street railway building on
South Main street; the Halyburton hotel
it the new passenger depot, Demcns &
Taylor's factory at the same place, and
a score or more otners in different sec
tions of the city.
All this goes to show that Asheville is
fast growing in industrial and manufac
turing importance and enterprise, while
the many handsome new resiliences dot
ting the landsca)c here and there like the
stars in the sky, prove lieyond all dis
pute our city's preeminent claim to rank
other cities of the world as the God-
favored domain of happy and magnificent
Asheville is growing fast; she is widen
ing out; her business is extending; her
population increasing; her fame goeth
out to the world at large, and her beau
ties and benefits, her activity and push is
the wonder of men. Let her not go
backward in this her bright era of pros
icrity; keep her well to the front, and let
every Ashevillian earnestly and industri-
nisly, in season and out of season, work
for Asheville the queen city of the west
the pride of all North Carolina.
VERY BAD IIII.I.H
Are Those of the Defunct Bank
Hut unprincipled holders of the same
seem to cxieriencc no difficulty in pass
ing them off upon unsusecting shopmen
and others with ns much case as thev
were wont to pass in the days of the ex
istence of the idd bank at Charlotte. The
bills closely resemble the national bill of
the same denomination, and in the dark
one would have to scan its face twice lie-
fore be could distinguish thedifference be
tween the two. Consequently crooks
have uneasy time of it in distributing
them around, and make a considerable
clear profit by every transfer. All over
the Slate reports of the circulation of
these bills have been heard, and it does
seem that our people would lie a little
more careful in accepting money from
strangers after nil the sad exiericnees
they have passed through in this re-
But they arc not, and are just as liable
to take a bad dollar as a good one, if
they hapiicn to lie a little hurried, or the
wealth is taken in at night. Carl Kauf
man, a salesman at Whitlock's, is out
a dollar by reason of the latter cause,
and the way it happened runs this wise:
Late last night a stranger came into the
store, purchased an article costing a
dime, threw a dollar bill on the counter,
received ninety cents in change, and said
"good evening." This was the last seen
if him, but not of the dollar be bad left
behind. Later when the cash was being
made up, it was discovered that the dol
lar the stranger had left was a bill of the
old bank of Mecklenburg, an institution
that "has long since passed awav," and
wasn't worth the p.-qier it was printed
upon. The salesman was charged up
with a dollar, and pocketing bis "relic"
said if he ever ran across a greener man
than himself he would turn over to him
the Mecklenburg bill as a mark of rcsiect
to his siqicr-cmincnt verdancy.
Several of these bad bills have lieen
worked off on different parties in the city
during the past two or three days, so it
was learned last night. It would lie
well, therefore, to examine money of any
denomination or character when offered,
especially by strangers.
We take the following bit of informa
tion from the Kalcigh correspondence of
the Petersburg Index-Appeal. It lias al
ways occurred to us that the reticence en
forced by railroad companies on the oc
casion of accident was unmeaning nnd
wrongful, adding greatly to the distresses
of friends of parties involved in the acci
dent, productive of great and prejudicial
exaggeration, prolonging the agonies of
suspense, and only resulting in magnify
ing the mysterious importance of certain
employees. In such cases it is better to
know, as soon ns possible, the truth, the
whole truth, nnd nothing but the truth:
It has been a custom of railroad au
thorities, in this section, to refrain from
giving memlicrs of the press information
relative to accidents, and this, in manv
instances, has led to sensational state
ments, iiiiunousho the roads, causing un
just comment. It seems to have been de
termined to depart horn this custom in
the future, at least so far as the Rich
mond and Danville system is concerned,
and, it is hoped, the policy will be adopted
by the railroad companies generally.

day brought a large attendance of people
to the Sheepshend bay track to-day. But
the great race resulted unsatisfactory by
being run in very slow time, and through
over confidence on Garrison's part

After a lieautiful start Eberlee was
first to show, followed by St. Carlo,
.Master lake and Onawav. Ihe entire
field came down the chute almost along
side, but after going in this style for a
quarter Amazon showed slightly in front,

and Marie Lovcll. Entering the regular
stretch Elierlce took commanding lead,
followed two lengths liehind by
St. Carlo, Sinaloa, Padisha and

Just as you leave Patton avenue on
your way to Battery Park, "across lots"
as the Ynnkees call it, through that
grassy, well shaded strip between the
avenue and Piilliam street, youencountcr
i great tent, gorgeously bright with well
riie fruits, and gay with flowers and
shrubbery; and overhead spread the arms
of a majestic oak inviting to rest or stop
by its grateful shade, if not for a trial of
the tempting wares of the tent. The
whole picture is too pretty a one to lie
associated with c!f; it looks as if some
tasteful hand had spread tfie canvass,
and that some gay party of laughing,
lovely girls was coming to fill
it on some festival occasion. Yet
that would lie a mistake, for
wc warrant John Salmon knew well
what he was doing when he spread his
wares just where he did. Well, there is
so much beauty in what lie has done,
find there is so much worth in the bait he
spreuds, that wc hoie his trap will lie al
ways full, and that he will keep on set
ting it with new supplies.
The NewH and Courier Letter.
Perhaps half the people in the city had
a copy of the News and Courier in their
hands last night ; for it had in it the anx
iously awaited letter of Mr. Tighe. And
we arc very sure no one read it with dis-
ppointment. There was a delightful
free and easiness about it which set you
at once at ease, a familiarity and yet a
finish which practice and inherent gen
tleness brings with it ; and without de
scriptive effort or ambition plac
ing before the reader, a series
ol delightful pictures, the fidelity
of which he is quick to recognize, and
the flattery, delicate otherwise, he may
Ik quick to appropriate. It is the lettter
of the season; if artistic, executed with
exquisite power to sustain the idea ars
celurc nrtcm, and every reader will lay
the paiwr down with the conviction that
Asheville has lieen painted for him as
never depicted before. When we can, we
will make some quotations from it.
We clip the following from the Wil
mington Review of the 2nd inst:
Mr. Jos. H. McRee has been appointed
Resident Engineer on the C. F. & Y. V.
R. K. and has arrived here to assume the
duties of the position. He is a native
Wilmingtonian a son of the late Dr.
James F. McRee, and we welcome him
back to Ins old home.
Mrs. McRee is a son of Mr. James F.
McRee of Asheville, and son-in law of the
Rev. Jarvis Buxton I). D.
Death of Mm. Anderson.
The Citizen regrets to announce the
death of Mrs. Anderson, wife of Rev. J.
W. Anderson, which occurred at her resi
dence in Doublcday, at 12 m., yesterday.
She died from heart disease, and suffered
only a few moments. Her remains were
taken to Marion last night for interment.
New York Star: There is a growing
sentiment thnt the racing of ocean steam
ships must stop. Conservative people,
anxious to go abroad, are avoiding the
"crack" vessels, and are seeking passage
on ships in which the perils of racing arc
not added to the ordinary dangers of the
