HOW THINGS LOOK FKOM
OUIi STAND POINT.
The Opinion of The Editor and the
Opinion of Others which we
Can Endorse on the Various
Topics of the Day.
We heartily endorso the following
from the Statesville Landmark:
The re-nomination of Congress
man Henderson wo take to le evi
dence of an .awakening on the part
of the iKjoplo to the fact, to which
they have too long been inadvertent,
that ability in Washington counts
for nothing without length of ser
vice. Everything there goes by se
niority. Many men of very mode
rate ability reach positions of com
manding influence in Congress pure
ly by reason of long service there
with its necessarily attendant famil
iarity with usage, precedent and pub
lic affairs a familiarity which noth
ing but actual service car. supply.
The further away our people get from
the idea that a scat in Congress is
merely a personal reward bestowed
upn a popular favorite, the less
heedful they become of tho cry "no
tation in office!" the cry of the
man who is out the better they will
be represented in Congress; the bet
ter will their public business be at
The morning lion. 13. F. CJrady was
nominated at Clinton, Congressmen
McCJammy, who was defeated for
renomination, said that tho district
had a good and able man in Orady,
that we ought to keep him in Con
gress for ten years at least. These
words of truth McClammy spoke
like a patriot, lie knew that the
wise districts kept a Congressman
long enough for him to be a man of
power and influence in the halls of
legislation. One good man in Con
gress, who has served fifteen or
twenty years, would have more
weight and could do tho State more
good than nine new men.
A few weeks since, in answering
the Wilmington Messenger's charge
that the Alliance would split the
Democratic party, we said that the
Alliance would never split from the
party, but predicted that if a split
ever occurred it would be by those
who had been dictating and could
do it no longer. We are sorry to
say that our prediction has already
been fulfillod. The South Carolina
Democratic Convention wa com
posed of between .'500 or 400 dele
gates, a small fraction above one
sixth of this body (not farmers, not
members ot the Alliance) who could
no longer have their way, split from
the party. Adieu, ye;kickers! the
party is stronger without you.
Learn a lesson from history and
know that if you continue this cruel
and unjust policy you will not long
hence give birth to a revolution,
which will not only sweep you, and
your protection theories as well,
from the face of the earth; and with
them there will be swept away al?o
many other things, the loss of which
conservative men everywhere would
regret. In the redress of wrongs,
indignant men are not always nice
or wise; ami tliougli not in the oar-
gain, the blood will naturally follow
the pound of flesh. Do justice to
the people and do it now. Vance's
Speech in the Senate.
The dividing of the Encampment
uis, we believe, been a mistake. We
also think it a mistake to have a per
manent encampment. Let the whole
four regiments go into camp togeth
er at least once each year for at least
two weeks, alternating between the
West and the East at various points
suitable. The boys will learn as
much of millitary tactics by this
plan as from a permanent encamp
meat and at the same time take a
trip to a new place each year, thereby
learning something of their State
which they otherwise would proba
bly never learned.
Does farming pay? Yes, the world
is growing richer each year from
tho products of the soil, but those
who delve those products from the
earth aro growing poorer. Then
farming pays, but it is someone be
sides the farmer. Why is this? The
Alliance is investigating tho mat
Senator Vance in a private letter
to a gentlemen in Goldsboro, refer
ring to the Sub-Treasury bill, says :
I was and am friendly to the pur
poses ot the bill, and to everything
that the farmers wish that can be
granted them within the fundameu
tal law of my country. If their
cause is wisely directed it will tri
umph as sure as there is justice upon
Gov. Scales in Lis message to

Since tho Government allows no hunt-

roamed unmolested. Hut how to get the
ltear in position for a snap shot from tho
camera was the question. The clerk
solved this. At a certain hour the clerk
took a la rye portion of meat from the
cook's Ikix and left it at a point at which
the lear was frequently seen, ltagan
followed with his camera. In due time
the heat came down from its retreat.
The clerk was a safe distance away when
the bear ap)eare.l, 1 ut liagan stood his
ground. The bear stood his ground until
tlie odor of the meat was wafted Ins

picked it up greedily, and then, as if
grateful for tlie feast, it reared on its
haunches and remained in that attitude
for a minute, a sufficient time for a "sit
ting. " A moment later the bear turned
in another position, as if it were trying
to accommodate the artist, and the lat
ter obtained another view. 1 lie bear
then rolled away in the same direction
whence it came. The artist in returning
found 1 Ik lioiel clerk and a few guests
secreted near his position, heavily armed,

Monkey and Pwrrot .Sale.
A small crowd of Italians and wharf
speculators hustled over the side of tho
bark Anunciation Fomento as soon as
she was made fast, and in five minutes
an unearthly chattering began between
monkeys, parrots, buyers, and sellers.
There were only a few monkeys, but
plenty of parrots, which were sold at
prices of from 1.50 to $1 eaclu Tlie
largest parrot, which brought the top
price of 4, was a beauty of nearly twice
the ordinary size, and his observations
in SnaiiLsh creaknl a great deal of
auiusemeut anng the sailors, who had
evidently been teaching him their par
lance. The monkeye went at prices
from 2 to $7. The sale lasted twenty
minutes or so, at the end. of which a
queer procession of swarthy Italians, a
dozen in number, who had been tortu-
nate enough to purchase, came over the
side of the vessel with their chattering
and squirming possessions, and vanished
ere the blue coated inspector had begun

The men v ho are clearing up the work
ings of tl.e South Wilkesbarre, Pa., mine,
in which the bod: . the eig'at men
killed iu the disaster last February are
still entoudvd, have entered the fatal
tunnel in which the fire broke out which
cut the men oil from all hance of es
cape. They are proceeding very slowly,
for tlie tunnel is blocked by fallen roof
and rubbish, and it has to be cleared out
nd new tinil-ers put up. It Is probable
that the bod.es of the men will be found
in the tunnel, where they were overcome
by the fire in attempting to escape.
From present indications, a telegram
states, California will have in the near
future in her tin mining a new industry,
rivaling in importance even the taking
q gold from tho bowels of the artli.
The new industry is the mining at great
profit of ttu ore near San Jacinto, Sun
Bernardino county. Twect-3even years
ago tif deposits were found in this neigh
borhood, but tke valae of tlie discover
ies did not seem to be appreciated. Ne
gotiations have just been concluded
whereby the San Jacinto mines will pass
into the hands of an English syndicate.
