Whether the uniform practice

or not in order to pass the Force

The Mongols have a story on
this wise :
The geese, when about to start
southward on their autumn mi
gration, were entreated by a
frog to be taken him with them.
On.e of the .jeese expressing
their willingness to do so, if a
means of conveyance could be
devised, the frog produced a
stork of strong grass, got the
two gtese to take ii , one by each
end, while he clung to it by his
mouth in the middle. In this
manner the thrae were making
the journey successfully, when
they were noticed from below
by some men, who loudly ex
pressed their admiration of the
device, and wondered who had
been clever enough to discover
it. The frog opened his mouth
to say, ''It was T," lost his hold,
fell to the earth and was dashed
to pieces.

Washington, D. C, Jan. 2G.
Senator Gorman is proving
i nisei f mora than a match for
the republican Senators, and he
is still confident that with the
active and determined support
of democratic Senators and the
moral support of the conserva
tive masses of the country, the
Force bill and its revolutionary
ore; un tier, the gag-rule, can be
defeated. He fairly and square-
y outgeneraled the republicans
when they attempted to wear
out the democrats by a continu
ous night and day session of the
Senate, and now he is winning
mw parliamentary laurels by
he manner in which he is
blocking the republican at
tempt to force a vote upon
Senator AIdichN gag-rule re-
He compelled Mr.
to acknowledge that
made an erroneous
The republicans have
but one hope of succeeding and
that lies in Vice President
Morton making an arbitrary
decision in their favor, and the
probabilities are rather in favor
ot his doing so, although it will
be because of the great pressure
brought to bear upon him and
not because he wants to do it.
Even if the Senate adopts
the gag-rule resolution and
passes the Force bill, there
will still be grounds upon
which to base hope for its de
feat. The amendments made
to the bill in th3 Senate will
make its return to the House
unnecessary, and there the de
mocrats can renew the fight,
which the nearness of the 4th
of March and the eud of the
session, may make successful.
At any rate the republicans in
the House will nave to nave a
quorum of their own members
in order to pas9 it, and that's
more that they have had for
three successive days during
the session.
Czar Reed as he nears the
end of his power shows a die
position to resume some of his
tricks of the last session. By
the denial of a request that wis
right and fair, he, this week,
provoked Mr. Mills into an ex
hibition of t mper that is very
much regreted ty that gentle
man s inends; not on Keen s
account, he deserved all that
Mr. Mill's said of him, but on !
account of the effect that it
may have upon the candidacy
of M. Mills for the Speakership
of the next House. "You are
perpetrating a fraud upon the
House," shouted Mr. Mills, ad
vanceing down the aisle, and
shacing his fist at the Speaker,
"and you know it." Mr. Mills
then intimated in language not
to be mistaken that the Speaker
was not an honorable gentle
man. A minute or two later
Representative Kerr, of Inwa.
had the bad taste to call Mr.
Mills a "traitor." "Yon are a
traitor yourself," retorted Mr.
Mills, "to the constitution and
the laws. Yon are trying to
surround the ballot box with
bayonets and to deprive the
people of their right of repre
sentation." This was followed
by a scene hard to desciibe.
I he democrats cheered Mr.
Mills loudl? and the republi
cans hissed. Representative
Perkins of Kansas said "Dut
he dirty loafer (Mills) out,
"and in a moment he found the
big fist of Representative Mar
in, of Indiana, in close proxi
mity, to his no, o and was in-;
ormed that if there was to be
any "putting out" he (Martin)
proposed taking a hand in it.
That was the last heard of Per
kins. In the mean time the
Seargent-at Arms trotted out
with the gold head mace, the
emblem of authority in the
House and quiet was restored.
The Dockery resolution pro
viding for an investigation of
the Congressional Silver pools
is bearing fruits. Senator Vest
has testified that Senator
Cameron told him that he had
made some money speculating
in silver bullion, and Senator
Cameron has acknowledged it
claiming that he hid ar inuci
right to speculate in silver as
in corn, wheat or any other
product. How is that for cod!
audacity? The chairman of
the committee, Representative
Dingley, of Maine, is accused of
having adjourned the commit
tee from last week until Wed
nesday of this week in order
to prevent Senator Vest from
testifying nntil after the Pen
nsylvania legislature had r
eleted Cameron to the Senate,
although Mr. Vest had stated
his willingness to testify . It is
believed here that Cameron
would have been defeated had
his connection with the silver
speculation been made public
before his re-election. There
are other big republicans who
will be opposed if the commit
tee does its duty without fear
or danger.
I he latest scheme ot Reed
and his henchmen in the House
to force the s.lver republican
Senators to vote for the Force
bill is outlined in the announce
ment mat the House commit
tee on Coinage, before which
the free coinage bill now is.
will not report that measure to
the House until the Senate
passes , the Force, bill. It re-
mains to be seen how the silver
republicans in the House will
take this. Thy will be given
an opportunity of voting with
the democrats to discharge the
committee and take the bill up
in the House. Representativn
Bland has already offered a
substitute foi a resolution to be
reported from the committee on
Rules to limit the debate on
the appropriation bills, makii.g
the fiee coinage bill a continual
ordei after January 27.
Later: Thj Democrats in
Congress have made a noMe,
heroic, and able fight against
that infamous measure known
as the "Force Bill," and were
crowned with glorious success
on last Monday by postponing
the bill by a vote of 35 to 34.
This practically means the
dath of the measure.

PLOWING.
Different kinds of soiLrequire
different management both in
plowing and cultivating And
many fail to secure the best re

a failure to treat or manage the

Too many use the same kind ol
a plow and manage both the

in the same way no matter what
the kind of soil.
In a light sandy or loamy
soil, the soil should be turned
flat so that it will pack togeth

Jofokd, Duplin Co.,
January 20th, 1891.
At a meeting of the Union
Alliance, composed of Rockfish,
Concord, Magnolia, Piney Grove,
Carr's School-house, Chinquepin
and Island Creek Sub-Alliances,
a resolution was unanimously
adopted that payment of taxes
should be a necessary qualifica
tion to suffrage.
lhe necessity for this arises
rrom tne great numoer ot our
colored voters going South in
the Spring in returning in time
for the election, and having
evaded taxation by being ab
sent at the time of listing tax-
ables, but are sure to be here at
election time and claim their
absence was only temporary.
It was ordered that the fore
going resolution be sent to The
Clinton Caucasian for publica
tion, and that the Progressive
warmer copy tne same; also we
would be pleased that this ques
tion should be discussed as to
the constitutionality ot such a
law. Jas. E. Ward,
