The fate of the Pacific Railroad funding bill, whfsh was debated three days in the House last week, has been brought up and the measure with the pending amendments, will coine to a voe under the special order under which the House is proceeding. The bill involves the settlement of the $112.(i(i(i.(ti i.i indebtedness of the Union Pacilin and Central Pacific on the basis of an extension of over eighty years, at 2 per cent, with an annual extinguishment payment on the principal at the rate of ;JG."i,(K)(i for she first ten years, $580 000 for the tecond ten years, and $750,000 for the remaining years. It involves, as the alternative of its defeat, the probable immediate fore closure of the government's lien and the sale of the property, ic is tne culmination of the struggle which has gone on in Congress for a dozen years to secure some sort of an adjustment of the Pacific Railroad indebtedness on the basis of an extension, a3 it bas been apparent for a long period that the roads would default when the bonds matured. The interests at stake are gigantic, and the friends of the bill are straining every nerve. The opponents of the measure are also ac tive, and the result is awaited with in tense interest. Each side are claim ing it would be victorious to-day. Both sides have made polls of the members, upon which they predict their claims. Before the final vote is taken on the bill the Bell and Harrison substitutes, both of which are pending:, will be voted upon. The former provides that if the Union Pacific and Central Pa cific will discharge the first mortgage indebtedness of $01,000,000, so as to advance the government s lien to a first mortgage, the government will agree to an extension of the debt at a low rate of interest. The Harrison substitute provides for the creation of a commission consisting of the Secre tary of the Treasury, the Secretary of the Interior, and the Attorhey General ior tne settlement ot tne uebt; on a basis fair to the roads and just to the government. After the funding bill is disposed of the House will proceed with the con sideration of appropriatirn bills until Saturday, which will be given up to eulogies on the life and character and public services of the late ex-Speaker Crisp. 1 be Indian and military ap propriation bills are on the calender, and before these are disposed of the agricultural bill will be brought in. The course of the Senate this week will depend largely upon whether the Pacific Railroad funding bill passes the House and whether Senator Cam eron will call up his Cuban resolutions Mr. Cameron's friends expect that he will be in his seat this week and that when he returns he will indicate his desire as to the resolutions of the Cuban question. If he decides to press the resolutions there will be a deter mined effort to aid him in this direc tion ; but in any event there are likely to be a few speeches on Cuba. Senator Mills bas announced bis purpose to address the Senate on this question Monday and it is understood that Sen ator 'Davis is purposing a Cuban speech. ' The Pettigrew free homestead bill is expected to reach a vote not later Tuesday, and it is to be followed by the Pacific Railroad bill if the latter passes the House. Senator uuiiom, who will have charge of the legislative, executive, and judicial appropriation bill, said last week that he expected to be aTile to report that measure by the middle of next weeK and that he would asK the Senate to consider it as soon as reported. Washington, D. C, Jan. 12. Never was there more quiet at the beginning ot the roll-call in the House than when the final vote on the Pacific rail road funding bill was taken. Mem oers dropped into their seats and for the time being forgot to converse with their neighbors. Intensity of interest was depicted on every face, w hen the roll-call was ended, and it was known that the bill was reiected oy a majority, tne friends of the meas ure wno naa preaictea its Dassaee ud to the last moment, were surprised by iue uecisive cuaracier oi tneir aeieat. They had been led to hope from the votes on the substitutes that the bill bad more than an even chance of pas sage. The Bell substitute provided that if the Union Pacific and Central Pacific Captured After a Ueoperate Struggle Kl.Ullrd With VulletH oa Hit Way to Sumter By an Angry Mob. Sitmter, S. C, Jan. 7. Simon Gooper, colored, who iives near Lynchburg, in this county, this morning shot Ben Wilson, seventy-five years old, split open the head of his son, Wesley Wil son, with an axe, cut Mrs. Wesley Wil son's throat aDd Emashed her head with an axe. After wiping out this family he chopped Preston Smith's head off with the same axe and shot a young girl. The story of the multi murderer is as follows : on January 1 each year the colored people in and around Lynchburg al ways celebrate Emancipation Day. This year, as usual, the celebration was held, and was a quiet and orderly, affair until the afternoon, when Cnoper ranhl Town, driving a span of horses. He attemptea to drive ove some of the negroes standing in the street, and got into a difficulty with them. The result was that he killed one negro and wounded six others,l took entire possession of the two and terrorized the whole populace. Some time that night lie left town and nothing more was heard of him until yestei day, when he again visited the little village and attempted to force a young negro girl to marry him. The girl and her mother, who were greatly frightened, escaped to a swamp. A posse was organized immediately and followed Cooper, but did not suc ceed in capturing him. Sberilt Pierson, of Sumter county, organized a posse, and, chartering a special train, left immediately for tne scene of the tragedy. In the house a teinble scene met their gaze. Old man Wilson lay dead in the kitchen. while only a few feet from him was the body of his son, the head of the latter being clelt from forehead to chin. Signs of a desperate struggle were everywhere. Mrs. Wilson lay near the dorr with a big gash in her throat and her head smashed and beaten almost beyond recognition. Tosses are scouring the whole coun try and it is probable that Cooper will soon ne taken, ice latter is neaviiy armed, carrying several revolvers and a sixteen-shooter rifle of the latest pattern. Governor vans had ottered, pre vious to this murder, a reward of $100 for Cooper's capture. Five hundred dollars will now be paid for Cooper's head. His chance of escaping being lynched will be very small, if caught. All day the streets have been filled with excited people and the supply of guns and ammunition is almost ex hausted. Si'mtkk, S. C, Jan. S, the negro outlaw, who yesterday, mur dered three members of the Wilson family and a colored servant, was lynched near here to-day. Cooper was captured by the sheriff's posse and was being taken to Sumter when the mob decided to hang him. The deputy s her ill aided by two men resisted the lynchers, but were overpowered. A rope was thrown over tne limb ot a tree and as the man ran upward a volley rang out. The body was pierced by more than 150 balls. One bullet cut the rope and the corpse fell to the ground, where the coroner found it some hours later when he went to hold an inquest. yer, Mrs. Dr. F.

The Senatoratalp. Correspondence the Progressive Farmer. Ai, X. C, Dec. IS, '90. Permit me to express a few thoughts through your columns in regard to the selection of a good and tried silver man to represent us in the United States Senate for the next term. Tbe conditions of our pee pie are such that it is of the greatest importance to the people of the State of North Carolina that a good silver man should be elected to that position by our legislature; and 1 would sug gest to the legislature of North Caro lina to elect to that position the hon orable gentleman and patriot, Wm. A. Guthrie, of Durham. The people, so far as l have been able to learn, desire the Major to represent them in the United States Senate, believing: that he will be impartial in his oftcial du ties, and prove faithful to his constitu ents, irrespective of any political party whatever. As the finances of the country are gradually decreasing year by year, and distress seems close at hand. It behooves all good men to insist upon none but good and tried men to fill offices, from President down to constable. The people are anxious ly waiting and hoping that prosperity may again crown our land, and tran quility, peace and happiness may abound, from the rivers to the ends of the earth, and our people only desire an equal distribution of the blessing, and patronage of a free and independ ent citizenship, they do not need any contraction of the currency. But an explanation of it, such as free coinage of gold and silver at the ratio of 1 to 1, would give th?m, for we certainly have not enough money in circulation now to transact the business of the country, and for this reason I think that there should be a true silver man (such a one as Major Guthrie) be sent to the United States to advocate and plead for the down-trodden of a liber ty-loving people, who are groaning under a financial burden. Trusting that each legislator will give the matter deliberate thought and elect this patriot and true silver man to the next seat in the United States Senate. Please let us bear from other good citizens of the State in re gard to this matter at once. - J. P. TlNUENT.

GRAND RECEPTION TO GOV. RUSSELL. A Brilliant Social Event In Honor of The State's New Chief Executive. One of the most brilliant, social events that ever occurred in the Capital city of the State was a recep tion given to Governor and Mrs. Russell on Tuesday evening by the Capitol Club, the chief social or ganization of the city. The mem bers of the club are the leading citi zens of Raleigh, and they gave their best efforts to making the occasion pleasant and successful, and their success was grauiymg even oeyouu their most sanguine hopes. Over 400 invitations had been is sued and nearly everybody who re ceived an invitation went. I he eruests included the new Governor and State c facers, the members ot the Legislature and a large number of visitors, who are in the city, be sides the members of the club. v The reception began at 9 and lasted until 12 o'clock. From 10 to There is more Catarrah in this section of the country than all other diseases put together, and until the Simon Cooper, i last few years was supposed to be in curable. Jfor a great many years doctors pronounced it a local dis ease, and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly tailing to cure with local treatment, pronounced it incurable. Science has proven catarrah to be a constitutional dis ease, and therefore requires consti tutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only con stitutional cure on the market. It is taken internally in doses from 10 drops to a teaspoonf ul. It acts di rectly on the blood and mucous surfaces of the system. " They offer one hundred dollars for any case it fails to cure. Send for circulars and testimonials. Address. F. J.
