Kngland is delighted with Cleve
land's message. - New York World.
The Democratic State
of Ohio met last week.
ZEBULUN AND HIS PRINCIPLES.
The situation in North -Carolina,
so far as the Democracy is concern
ed, is interesting and peculiar. Sen
ator Vance has cut loose from Cleve
land; and the letter published by us
not long ago, has arraigned him for
his want of faith and consistency.
The intluence of the Senator is peo
digious. The people rally to him,
because they see they are about to
be sold out by the Clevelandites.
Vance's letters were in the nature of
a prophecy. The long expected
message to congress has appeared.
It repudiates the Democratic plat
form, and there is a direct conflict
between the President and a major
ity of the Democrats in Congress.
According to Senator Vance, the
President is dominated by Wall
street and adopts the financial ideas
of the money kings. His message
recommends, in express terms, the
repeal of the purchasing clause of
the Sherman act. His language is,
"I earnestly recommend the prompt
repeal of the provisions of the act
passed July 14, 1890, authorizing the
purchase of silver bullion." He also
desires that congress should "put
beyond all doubt or mistake the in
tention and the ability of the govern
ment to fulfill its pecuniary obliga
tions in money universally recog
nized by all civilized countries." He
means by this, England, Germany,
France, Austria and the like na
tions which have adopted gold as
the standard of value. He means,
indeed, that "gold and silver must
part company." Thus the pledges
of the Chicago platform are deliber
ately iguored; and, in effect, silver,
according to the President, is to be
no longer known as a money metal.
The people are left in the lurch.
But this is not all. The president
takes issue with the Democratic
platform upon the tariff. That docu
ment condemned the Republican
doctrine of protection and declared
it to be unconstitutional. The Dem
ocrats conducted their campaign, es
pecially in the South, upon the idea
that the tariff was responsible tor
the woes of the country. The presi
dent temporizes. lie not only did
cot call congress together iu early
session; but he is now mealy-mouthed,
so far as the tariff is concerned.
He says it was his purpose to call
congress together, not before Sep
tember, with a view to legislate upon
what he is pleased to call "tariff re
form." But now he says that ques
tion must be postponed; and in obe
dience to the commands of Wall
street, he recommends that congress
must at once and exclusively attend
to the money question, before any
other subject shall be considered.
Indeed, the real purpose of the
president is not to make any radical
tariff changes. He never has intend
ed it. lie evidently does not believe
that the tariff should be disturbed in
any essential particular; and he
might as well be a republican, so
far as the tariff is concerned.
Senator Vance, "our Zebulun,"
foresaw all this. In fact he has
never liked Mr. Cleveland from the
very first, when he was president be
fore. In his letter Vance has struck
the popular heart. The people shout
for him and admire him more than
ever. Those editors who read him
out of the party are now compelled,
in truth, to follow after him. He
left a smell of sulphur in the air,
and they haye taken warning. Had
they not done so, they would have
had no readers. The , people were

a fine flow of big words, he declares
'that some of Mr. Cleveland's pie-mi.-c
are irrelevant and some of his
argumentation illogical." He finds
he must cut loose from Cleveland,
...ml in .loin-' so, he seems to leave
Uansom to his fate; for Cleveland
and Kansom are twin brothers.
Poor JoM-ph (.'aid well also lias been
compelled to follow Vance's lead,
after reading him out of the party.
The fumes of the sulphur did the
business. They choked Joseph and
he could not endure the odor, lie
was indeed "pained" when Vance
jumped on him; and his affectionate
re me rnbrance of the days when there
was no clash between them, almost
moved him to tears. Hut the people

the congress at once to retieal this
awful law that has worked such ter
rible consequences." "He seems at
the very close to give a hint for gold

Aud so the leading editors dis-
course. They are none of them
pleased with Mr, Cleveland, who was
elected by their aid, with a whoop.
The small-fry journals of the State
will follow their example. A howl
against Cleveland will ascend from
all narts of North Carolina. It is
because Zebulun has spoken, and
sulphur is floating in the atmospheie
from the sea coast to the mountains.

The men drew into a narmwer ir !e
about the broad Crepla-e. as the two
women disappeared through the door
held politely open for them by Lorimer.
Kafe extended the tobacco canister
hospitably towards Jobi. Four pipes
were simultaneously exhumed from four
pockets. Dick, eag-er aiiti joun, voiced
the eommon desire:
"Now, then, old fellow, let us henr ali
about it. You 6ee, your letters were
tremendously scappy and unsatisfac
tory." "Tremendously so."
Lorimer had come bak to the fire
place and appropriated the easy chair, ',
on whose arm swung the gay baj. He
was studying John's face intently: j
"Wrote us by one mail that you had se
rious Intentions concerning a young
lady In your boarding house, and the ;
next information we get is that you are
going to bring your wife home to live; :

John fidgeted uncomfortably in his
chair. The steadfast gaze of Lorrie"s
was more than he could stand:
"Not to live, buttostaj' for six months
or so. I had given up my place. And ;
Nora wanted to leave town for awhile."
"And never to te us that she w as a ;

Johnnie, no question of that."
The new-made gToom flushed hotly.
Lorimer made haste to say:
"Dick and Kafe were seeing to the
luggage when you introduced the little j
lady as Mrs. John's niece."
John addressed himself directly to
his younger brothers:
"My wife waa not a widow. The child

Dick laughed: "You've hit upon an '

He wanted to comfort John. They all
did. In fact. The bond of brotherly af

a happy groom. It wore an unfamiliar
look of anxiety somewhat as if, hav

the chances of plunging over. Lorimer
turned his eyes from John's flushed face
to the dusty pampas plumes which Dick
had criticised so severely. Ho smiled
at the undue importance the boy had
given them. The mantel vases might
have been ornamented with sides of

of the inquisition that evening.
Uut there was no inquisition in prog

entire ooarl'-sy, niakbi her daughter-in-law
at hotac aiu.j: her strau'j .sur-rountiin-s.
There were peculiarities about the
loc'i on the bi bureau drawers to be
explained; the location of the linen
closet, where an inexhaustible supply
of fresh towels was always to be found,
to be indicated; the. meaning of the
various bells which would ring in the

to see if enough covering had been put
on the bed. Nothincr was ever left to

But all the whibj she was moving

of hers, giving her domestic informa

From the 6m.i!l adjoining bedroom
which had hastily "been prepared for

They conld see the child lying asleep,
one dimpled hand supporting her round

Frenchwoman putting things to order:

Evidently the bonuo had
