The Penitentiary authorities have, we understand, made a contract with some shirt manufacturers to lease them an uouscd wing of the State penitentiary building, and to hire them a certain number of con victs to be used in making shirts.

In thirty other cities, in cluding Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Elingburgh, and Lon don, the municipalities own and op erate a part of the lines within their limits.

Washington Post. The success of Tammany in New York at the recent election is to be followed by an attempt to displace Mr. Bryan as the leader of the Demo cratic National Party and to make a New York man the next Demo cratic candidate for President. The man whom Tammany and Mr. Hill intend to boom is Justice Alton I). Parker. The fact that Justice Par ker at the recent election overcame McKinley's majority of 330,000 and carried the Ktate of New York by 00,000 will be urged as a reason why the Democratic party should look upon him as the most avail able candidate for the Presidency. This statement comes from a member of Tammany Hall, who is a friend of Croker's, Hill's and Parker's, and who is well in the confidence of the organization. MUST CAKKV NKW YORK. Speaking of Mr. Justice Parker as a candidate, he said : "The Dem ocratic party has got to realize that success is extremely doubtful, if not impossible, unless we can carry tne Mate or JSsw York. Justic Parker has demonstrated that he can carry that State. He has car ried it this fall by a larger majority than has .any Democrat received since the Folger campaign. I think that the New York delegation to the next Democratic national con vention will go as a unit to pre sent the name of Justice Parker. IX KIVALHY WITH BRYAX. "Justice Parker as well as Tam many, supported Bryan loyally, and if Parker is a candidate before the convention he will appear in rivalry with, but not in antagonism to, Bryan. Justice Parker's record is not assailable by any Democrat, either on account of his standing in the party or lack of loyalty to any of Its candidates. "It would be worse than folly for the Democratic party to nominate for the presidency a man who can not carry the State of New York. Parker, we know, surely can carry the State, and his availability as a presidential candidate ought to be recognized by Democrats North, South, F.ast and W est." eT n THE TELEPHONE RATES The fallroad ramaaleatea baa Jariedle- tloe la thte Matter-A ad DUbIimi the Caae. Before the Itailroad Commllon last week there was a final re-hear- lng in the matter of telephone rates. There was argument br counsel for the telephone com panies, which had excepted to the Commissioner's orderreducing tele phone, rates in the ttate. Hon. John W. Dan 11 and Clarence K. Young appeared for the American Telephone and Telegraph Company, and Robert C. Strong for the South ern Bell Telephone Company. The Commission unanimouslv decided to revoke its former orders regulat ing telephone rates and leaves the matter open to free competition. The attorneys in the case ate much pleased with the action taken, as It is a decided victory for the com panies in the State. The Itailroad Commission makes the following order: "The Commission bavin fully considered the exceptions filed In this case, and having obtained the advice of the Attorney General thereon are of the opinion that this board is not given jurisdiction un der the Commission act to do more with respect to rates of telephone companies than to make or cause to be made, just and reasonable rates, of charges for 'transmission of messages' by any 'telephone line' or lines doing business in the State, and that it has no authority to prescribe charges for rental of tele phone wires, instruments and ex changes or the use thereof, but that the rates lixed by the Commission for the transmission of messages shall remain in force. Representa tive of the Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company were pre sent and prepared to show from transcripts of their books that their charges for rental on telephone wires, exchange service or the use thereof, were not unreasonable, but this matter was not considered by eason of the opinion of the Attor ney General. All orders llxing rates for rental of telephone or ex change service are hereby rescinded and the case is stricken from the docket." Followiug is the opinion of At torney General Walser: "Section 27 of the Railroad Commission act by the use of the language 'make or cause to be made, just and reason able rate of charges for transmission of messages by any telephone or telegraph line doing business in North Carolina,' did not intend to and does not confer upon the board of Itailroad Commissioners author ity to fix rates of rental of telephone appliances or boxes."

The Cham ber of Commerce and the leaf to bacco merchants have informed Superintendent Mebane yesterday sent out a circular letter to the public school teachers of the State, request ing them to come tbgether in every county in the State and organize them selves into Teachers Associations. In the course of this letter he has this to say touching the importance of organization and united effort : "It is of vital importance to public education for onr teachers to be or ganized ; to have united action for ad vancement among our teachers. No teacher is so wise but that he may learn something by coming in touch with his fellow-teachers. Those of you who are better prepared to teach, and who have bad better opportunities than others, should meet with the others who are not so well prepared, and who have not bad such favorable opportu nities. "Come together in .the Teachers' As sociation for mutual benefit, as well as for the cause of public education in general. Why shall our teachers be organized? The business men, bank ers and merchants are organized. We have our Dental Association, our Med ical Association, our'Press Association, our Pharmaceutical Association, and others too numerous to mention. All these organizations mean something, all of these evils are encouraged and fostered by the practice of dealing m conon at gross rate. "The advent into the market of cotton put up in new forms of bales in proper condition gives an oppor tunity to remove these evils and their causes. The old forms of bal s can be made entirely satisfactory if. put up in lite manner to the Egypt ian, as a large amount of cotton this season will be put up in the new bales, the time has arrived when users are in a position to take a de cided stand on the question of baling ana weigning. "We, therefore, insist on better baling and .handling of cotton and npon a system of dealing at a net rate, and we pledge ourselves to give all the preferences possible to cot ton so baled, handled and sold." It was stated in the course of dis cussion that at least two new forms of cylindrical bales have been in vented, and are actively promoted, as well us one new form of the tuuare bale, and are vastly superior to the old bales. Foreign cotton reaches the manufacturers in good shape. and they are much more dUsathtied with the manner in which American cotton is put up. The members showed a firm resolution to insist on better methods of preparation. Their idea is not so mnch in favor of the adoption of any particnlar form of bale, or even the abandonment of the old, but to secure such improved metnoas oi baling as will assure them that they will receive at the mills the cotton which they buy.

These, I said, were the evils that have brought hard times and caused stagnation of business. "The politicians of both of the old parties have seen these evils grow up and the wholesale robbery of the people committed, but have kept the truth from the people and have kept them stirred up and divided on other questions.

Such a man is happy when the negro makes himself of fensive and if necessary would no doubt hire a negro to make himself offensive to furnish campaign capi tal in the interest of the monopo lists.
