The Opinion of The Editor and the Opinion of Others which we Can Endorse on the Various Topics of the Day. DANCER IN IT. Senator Ay cock, of Wayne, agrees with The Caucasian in condemn ing the proposition of the Wilming ton & Weldon Kailroad Company, that was accepted by the ltailway Investigating Committee. What is the proposition? In sulstance it is about as follows: That for a consideration of about 520,000 taxes, ti be paid by the Wil mington & Weldon Railroad Com pany, that the State enter into a con tract with said company that it shall never be taxed more than above amount and that certain rights and privileges be granted the compauy, viz: That the capital stock of said company be increased toi?10.000.000. in all resiects like the stock before issued, that thtt company have the right to eonsolidate with or buy any oiner railway or stock of other com panies or to enter into any traffic agreement it may desire without I urther permission or consent from the State. In the first issue of our paper, af ter the proiosition was accepted by the committee to be recommended to the next General Assembly, we said that it would not do. We give warning that there . was aj Trojan horse in it. No people can aflbrd to grant such extraordinary and per petual privileges for such a pittance of taxation, and any Legislature that would swallow the bait would bo untrue to the people. We are op posed to accepting a cent of taxation that comes loaded with such a bur den. Senator Avcock. who was a member of tho committee, voted against accepting the proposition and we are glad to see him out in a card giving his reasons. His card is as follows : After maturely considering the proposition of the Wilmington & Weldon Itailroad Company in the draft of a bill submitted to this com mittee, I am "compelled to dissent from tho action of the committee recommending the acceptance of tho proposition for the following rea sons: 1. The powers given to make con nection, and "the general privileges bestowed by the bill on the company are too general and far reaching, the grant of unlimited powers ot consol idations being, in my opinion, capa ble of being so used as to prove in jurious to the interest of the people of the State. 2. The valuation of the railroad bed of tho main track is fixed at not more than ?S,000 per mile, and that of the branches at not more than $1,000 per mile, and the State bound by contract not to exceed these val uations for purposes of taxation, thereby putting the property of the corporation upon a different footing from that of the private tax-payer. I think the valuation ought to be made under the general law, and not restricted, as is proposed. If the State should be bound by such a con tract as is proposed, the value of the road-bed might double and treble, but the tax value would remain al ways the same. 3. Under the proposed hill the property of the company, the value of which has not yet been ascertain ed, other than the road-bed, locomo tives, engines, cars ana other rolling stock, would escape taxation. 4. The bill limits perpetually the rate of taxation, fixes the valuation of the road-bed for all time, and recognizes and approves the princi ple that one law ot taxation ma-' ex ist for the property of a corporation and another for the taxation of that of the individual. I thin'. the surrender of exemp tion should be made with fewer con ditions, and I believe if it were so made the company could safely rely upon obtaining from tho Legislature such privileges as it might reasona ably ask, and such as may be neces sary to it in the conduct of it busi ness. The railroads of the State have been trusted hy the Legislature with unequalled power, and they have no reason to fear any unreasonable re fusal of legislation in their behalf. G. The alleged contract, whereby the company has always claimed its exemption from taxation, has been and still is a source of irritation to the people of the State, and a con stant source of annoyance to the tax ing powers, and I am not in favor of the State entering into any new con tract with this company or any other which shall have for its effect the suggestion of any claim of exemp tion from taxation or the curtailing of the right of the State to derive revenue rom any and every species of property within its territory. In arriving at these conclusions, I am not insensible of the great bene fit which will be derived to the peo ple of this State by the contribution of so large a sum to the Treasury as the company has pioposed, which would yield to the State and coun ties about $20,000 yer annum, but seeing the dai ger of such legislation has led me to the conclusion. thf t that the proposed legislation would be unwise. I regret that I am unoble to con cur with the majority of the com- muiee. B.F.AYCOCK. iet us strive for a reduction of taxation on the necessaries of life for a reduction of tho expenditures of the government for an increase of the currency and the price of farm products by the free coinage of sil ver and the restoration of its full legal tender character for the ro lal of the tax upon State banks for the regulation of transportation rate's by railroad commissions, and Ja.-f, but not least, let us earnestly contend against the spirit of central ization, which is constantly threat ening to absorb the local, wdl-gov-ernment of the people of the States. Zeb. B. Vance. OUli CONGRESSIONAL N03II NKE. It was eminently fitting that tho Democrats of the 3rd Con gressional District should the other day at Clinton invest with the highest honors in their gift one whose life, though hitherto comparatively remov ed from public view, has been replete with valued services to his fellow-men. A graduate of the University of his 'native State, which lie honors by his ripe scholarship and varied at tainments, li. F. Grady, after four years of service to his country in the field given with tho self-abnegation and devo tion to principle characteristic of thtj man has consecrated his intellectual vigor and prime to the great work of a field where the laurels are unfading; the promotion of tho interests of both higher and common school education. As Superin tendent of Public Instruction in his county, in the class-room, iu the lecture-hall, in the columns of the press, he has been always an educator in the test sense of the word, a soul ful laborer in the task of free ing the youthful mind from the trammels of ignorance, and elevating it to the broader and brighter domain of intelligence. A member of the Farmers' Al liance, Mr. Grady is a consistent friend of tho agricultural in terests, while his liberal and advanced views ou all imDor- tant subjects render him a well chosen representative of every class of the people. It is especially seemlv. too. that the convention by its nomi nation made recognition of the past services of Mr. Grady's na tive county, DuDlin. and cast about its splendid Democratic recoil the wreath of victorv. The "banner" countv of tho district goes into this fight with its own gallant standard-bearer. Fayetteville Observer. ltlGIITKIM) OF TALK. To my friends of the Third Congressional District: It is no time for regret. The success of the Democratic party and the domination of the white people in North Carolina is paramount to all other considerations. You made a valiant and determined fight to secure my renomina tion, from the 1st to the 179th ballot, you proved tc me your devotion,loyalty auo" confidence. I thank you for it I deeply, profoundly and sincerely ap preciate it. You are Democrats. Your first and last considera tion is Democratic supremacy in North Carolina. Wit t out the asking you, I know, will support my successor, B. F. Grady, of the noble, true, tried and patriotic county of Duplin. As you have supported me, I ask you to follow me in the coming campaign. C. W. McCj.ammy. Commissioner of Agriculture liobinson writes that after hav ing travelled over the greater portion of the cotton producing section of the State, he has nev er seen a 1etter prospect for a good crop, and the same is true also of tobacco, another "mon ey" crop. la consequence of this cheerful outlook the far mers are hopeful and in good spirits. In addition to this he says that the crops, as fair aa they promise, have cost less to produce than any previous vear attributable not alone to the favorable seasons, but also to the unusual economy practiced by the farmer?. With no mis baps between nor and harvest time he is of opinion that our farmers will have more money at the close ot the present vear than at any time in the past ten years. wi I. Star.

Yesterday the stallion Ie came vicious and frantically attained his mate wit i teet'i and hoofs. Mr. Smith uncoupled the horses, when tho stallion attacked him. He is a jiowerful and very resolute man, and after a fierce struggle, in which he was severely wounded in the hip by the animal's feet, he succeeded in sulKluing the horse and leading him to the bam. He hitched him on the luirn floor, removed the har ness and was proceeding to take him to a stall when the vicious animal again attacked him. The wind, blew the barn door shut and Mr. Smith found himself imprisoned with the frantic bruU.

MINISTER SIIZNEtt 1IKA11D FROM. After a Lout; Silence He In Again In Com munication With the Vnlteil States. The State Department has received a dispatch from Lansing B. Mizner, United States minister resident in Central America, stating that he was at a place called Meutou, in Gautemala, and tliat he was in communication with the com manders of the United States vessels Thetis and Ranger. Mr. Mizner says nothing about the bloody conflicts sup posed to be in progress between Gaute mala and Salvador, or the reported out breaks against the administration of General Barillas, which are said to be starting up in several provinces in Gau temala. He also failed to refer in any way to the recent seizure of arms on the Pacific mail steamer Coliina by the Gau temalan authorities, as to the facts of which he lias been instructed by the State Department to report Mr. Miz ner's silence as to all important particu lars is thought to signify cither that he has not received the dispatches sent him during the last fortnight, or that the Gautemalan government will not allow him to give out the particulars of any of the internal affairs of the country.
