Judge Nugent ha led such an irre nroachablelife here that whatever hi nays is accepted as truth by all, and vt-rv few men are known who have such vivid conceptions of political truths as has Thomas L. Nugent. We suppose we shall have to say that he will not be on our ticnei next year as he has withdrawn for failing health and we have good reason to think this will not return in time for him to lead us to victory. In view of the above facts, all eyes are now turned to Maj. Jerome 'C. Kearby,of Dallas, as our candidate for governor next year. He is very able, is honest, a great lawyer; he has all the courage of his convictions, and wields an influence which threatens Texas Democracy with annihilation. a a a. a.

The Southern Railway Company, as everybody know:), his absorbed every branch line of road in the country upon which the management could get their hands. One after another the lines for merly leased by th old Richmond & Danville Comnanv have fallen victims to the Southern's love of annexation. This every one expected, but the state ment which Is now made that the Southern people want to get possession of the Ohio River Charleston the old Three C'. is ruther startling. The Yorkville Yeoman is the authority for the statement in the following para graph : NATIONAL HANK.H WKIiK Ol'l'OKKD to any legislation in favor of remoneti zation, and one by one I he leading newspapers of the Itepnbliean party became unfavorable to silvcr. In Con gress the opposition to silver came principally from the Republican party and a few Eastern Democrats. The ad ministration of I'resident Hayes, with wr. Nnerman at the head of the Treas ury Department, was active in oppos- nguivir, anu wiicn a eiiver bill, in troduced by Mr. I'.land. passed the louse of Representatives by an over whelming majority it was mutilated n the Senate by what is known as the Allison amendment, which made it a silver purchasing act instead of a free coinage act. The Democratic party as a whole, was at that time and ever af ter, until Mr. Cleveland's FI1S9T EI.KCTIOX, a free coinage party. In 1831 the plat- rorm oi the Democratic party upon which Mr. Cleveland was elected con tained the following declaration : Wo neueve in nonest money, the cold an.l silver coinage of the Constitution, and a circulating medium convertible into such money without loss." Isut Mr. Cleveland after hi3 election turned out to be a most violent oppo nent of silver and a the money powers. In 18X8 the DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION WAS SILENT on the silver question, and the Repub lican National Convention adopted the following plank with regard to sil ver: "The Republican party is in favor of the use of both cold and silver as money, and condemns the iolicy of the Democratic ad ministration in its etlorts to demonetize silver." Uut President Hiirrison s adminis tration wasas hostile tosilver as that of his immediate predecessor. In 1892 both parties straddled, and Mr. Cleve land was elected because Mr. Harrison was an object lesson of the gold stand ard in the White House and attracted more attention on that account than his opponent, who was then in private lire. It was a slow race, minion voted for Weaver, and another million or two stayed away from the polls. But Harrison succeeded in disgusting more men than Cleveland, because his mis con due was MORE RECENT AND FRESH in the minds of the voters. Mr. Cleve land had succeeded in organizing in the Democratic party a strong, ajnrres sive cold party. The banks are with him, the commercial press is with him, the Northeastern uemocrais are wan him, and he has divided the Democratic party and secured, so far as tne govern ment of the party is concerned, more than one-half of it. In the last expres sion of opinion of the Democrats north of the Ohio and east of the Mississippi, as manifested by convention, gives the cold men nearly one-hair or tne juec toral College. With Kentucky and Alabama and the Western States, such as Kansas and Nebraska, the Dakotas and Orecron. where there is no Demo cratic party, but simply an adminis tration I'lB-EATINO PARTY, that Cleveland Democracy can easily have the delegates to the convention. With tbe thousands or banks, me com mercial press, and the leading pohti body knows cannot accomplish any re form in opposition to Northern Demo cracy. I had hoped that tbe Southern leaders who are silver men would have been AS BOLD AND DEFIANT as Northern leaders who are gold men, and would have set tbe pace for a cam paign in favor of the restoration of sil ver; but inasmuch as they have not done so there is no hope except in inde pendent action, and as true as the sun rises and sets, such independent action will come. The Populists, whose hearts are with the people, as their name in dicates, the silverites who are opposed to English rule, and all natriotic Amer icans who believe in constitutional government and a sufficient volume of money to stop the fall of prices, to revive business will unite, aud there is not power enough in the banks, in tbe gold press, in the English agents, in TUB ALIEN ADMINISTRATION, Tbe national Congress iUoaUattsd From First laa. ton Duke, Ksq for the aged ministers and widows and orphans of ministers, was receivea ana t banks returned.

The Georgia legislature has opened the way for a test of the constitutionality of the ten per cent, tax on State bank notes. The Calvin banking act, passed at a former session, has been amended so that within a short time some public spirit ed citizens of this State will establish a bank and issue notes for the express by instructed to report a bill to tbe Senate forbidding the exercise of such authority and declaring such impris onment unlawful. Tbe Senate adjourned until Monday, Dec. 16. Hoon. Fifty-five pension bills were intro duced. Mr. Lacy, of Iowa, introduced a reso lution which will wake up the fee hunt ing revenue rascals, if it is carried through. The resolution is as follows : Jtesolredt That tne Attorney-General be, and is hereby, requested to furnish for the information of the House of Representatives a report for tbe last fiscal year or tne expense and emolu ment accounts rendered by the follow ing officers : Cleras of circuit and district courts held at Blacksburg on the 2'Jth ult., was a representative or the ooumern Railway Comnanv. who made a propo sition, in behalf of his company, to lease the Ohio River & Charleston for a nerind of five years. We have been unable to learn w hat rental was offered, but are informed that one of the prin cipal arguments offered was that the Ohio River A Charleston could take the money the Southern would pay for rent snd finish the construction of thejroad across the mountains of Western North Carolina. The Southern is doubtless very anxious to get control of the road, even temporarily, for several reasons, the two principal ones we believe to be because they would get eutrance into a freiarht territory that is at present giv- i ng them a good deal of trouble through proratinir arrangements with other lines, and because it is their intention, t the expiration of present contracts with the Southern Express Company, to muse to renew transportation ar rangements with that company and or ganize an express business of their own that will cover exclusively their own and no prominent man among them I each direction. Christmas Holiday I issue in the courts. has since indicated a determination to stand by silver in the same manner that the gold Democrats of the East STAND BY GOLD.
