limited quantities of wi'd fowl thl

queoceof the rapid settlement of
Manitoba (the breeding e round of
these birds) an iraniDM trade in
wild fowl eggs ha of Late been de
veloped to the extent of hundred of
tons annually. To prevent this,
these very club men have purchased
immense trscts of the breeding
grounds in British America, which
are regularly guarded for the sole
purpose of enabling the bird to
hateh and raise their brood unmo
lested. When their annual migra
tion is made to our southern waters
they become common property ex
cept in certain localities which have
been purchased from the .State, but
the dwellers along the coast cannot
realize that these waters, though
unnavitrable, are not to bd kept for
their peculiar nse, and every attempt
of the stranger to purchase hasmet
with violent opposition.
As viewed from a distance, the
question naturally arises; should the
State be deprived of the benefit ac
cruing from such sales, for the per
petuation simply of local interests.
Barren and waste, as the country
seems, the people are not deprived
of all privilege as to church and
schools. These northern sportsmen
have, in great measure, aided in the
development of certain industries,
and by attrition doubtless made
some impress along the line of civil
ization by generous donations when
needed, and lavish expenditures of
money (locally) in various ways.
In conclusion it may be said that

For The Caucasian.
High Puint, N. C, tVb. J. I
have been reading and tbiuking this
winter and trunt a icreai loaoy f my
farmer friends have been doing the
bame!The more I read and think, the
more am I convinced and impressed
with the deep sense of justice there
is in the demands of the "Farmers'
Alliance and Industrial Union." I
have, on several occasions, invit
ed presidents and cashiers of Na
tional banks to come out in the
country and give us "hayseeders
some light on the financial ques
tion, but if THEY have a good thing
they seem bent m keeping it all
to themselves. I like opposition.
and for this reason wanted to hear
some reasons why a .sexsibl& man
could uphold the present financial
policy, and if we country folks hear
much on the side of a single gold
standard we nave to get it in, or
through, a muzzled press, as the
masses are almost a tjnit in favor
of a change. We . are wanting the
facts in this matter, and as Abra
ham Lincoln said in New Orleans,
when be witnessed an auction of
slaves (he then being only eighteen
years old) "if ever I am permitted
to hit the institution of slavery I wil
hit hard, by the Eternal God."
We in the "fifty's" know something
of the result of that blow. Talk
about a party with only one idea;
it makes me think of my wife's
mother, who used to say, "one thing
at a time and that done well is a
very good rule as many can tell."
If I am not the most mistaken I have
ever been "
do some of the hardest hitting
in 1S9G they have done for one hun
dred years, and well they may, for I
really believe our liberties are at
stake and we must wake up and
turn the rascals down. They feel
as though they have been fooled
long enough on the tariff and NIG
GER racket, -while they were being
secretly robbed of their honest toil.
The masses it has gotten entirely
too common to write and speak of
"common people" and I trust all re
form papers will consider this point
if it is a point if the great mass
of honest men are just common
folks, please give us just a few of
theuncommon: and I am fully aware
there are a goodly number of this
class in Congress and elsewhere in
places of trust and- profit. And to
hear one of these "uncommon - fel
lows" come around during the cam
paign and puff and blow and say
his piece some other fellow has
fixed up, is getting to be just a little
too funny for a genuine hayseeder
I have been a life long Republi
can was one when it took a back
bone as big as Grover's is said to be
to be one, and , am still a genuine
one of the Lincoln stripe,, but so far
as I am able to see there is no dif
ference on the money question be
tween the parties, and this is. the
question that has to be settled. I
am in for reform, but not of the
Tilden kind, no, no!
I have read with a great deal of
interest the articles of J udge Clark

the outline of the bones is traced on
