A TJse for Llqnea.d Air.
It ia reported that a new use has
been found for liquefied air, the posel
bllltles of which have been matters of
dwcusslon among scientific men for
aome time. According to the Mining
Reporter, a discovery was made recent
ly by which it is now practical to use
liquefied air in underground work, such
as mining, driving tunnels and sinking
snarls. It Is said that under proper
conditions the liberation of air from
the liquid can be effective in general
ing power with which to run drills un
der ground, pumps, hoists, etc., while
eool air can also be supplied in the
deepest mines. The liquid air can al
so be used in freezing soft ground,
making tunnel cutting less hazardous
and tedious. It there is any reliabil
ity in this reported discovery, and its
success can .be practically demonstrat
ed, it will make a new departure In the

long line of Concord ancestors, some
of whom were distinguished before tbe
I revolutionary war. They are of Pur
j itau stock, and always firm and fearless
in defense of their relizions faith and
political principle. Tbe picture of
tbe senator as he was making hia last
and greatest speech shows his solidity
of character. Jits forehead is massive,
bis lips heavy and compressed, his
lower jaw and chin broad an I billig
erent. His love for his party was
founded in its hostility to slavery and
tbe Houth, but his reverence for the
constitution and all its traditions ii
stronger than party. He was an old
line whig and an abolitionist per se
though there is no record that he ex
erted his influence to keep his people
from covert indulgence in the African
slave trade, lie is a great-grandson
of Jtoger Sherman, and so are William
M. Kvsrts and John and Tecumseb
Hm elder brother, Ebenezer, was
Grant's attorney general for a year or
two, and was distinguished in many
high position, having been a judge oi
the supreme court and a member of the
joint high comuiiHsion that framed the
treaty of aatiington in 1871 . i he old
ancestor, Samuel Hoar, was an officer
in the war of the revolution. His son,
Kamuel, wan a prominent lawyer and a
whig politician during the iirst half oi
this ceptury. I remember wuen he was
sent by the legislature of Mnssachu
setts to tue State of South Carolina tc
test the constitutionality of the law ol
that State that forbade free colored
persons from coming into it. It took a
bold man with a streak of fanaticism in
his nature to do that, but Samuel Hoar
dared to do it. and on his arrival in
Charleston in 1844 was promptly ex
polled from that city, and then from
the State. He left with prudent alac
rity, and it raised au awful rumpus all
over New England, and they threatened
secede and tight, but John lyler was tc
President, and ttiffy could do nothing
but talk and preacU and threaten and
keep up the African slave trade. We
college boys wanted to tight, too, and
dared Yale and Harvard to come down
to the line. It was a newspaper war,
and soon blew over, but it cemented
and enlarged the abolition party all
over the North, and finally brought on
the war that caused the death of half a
million men and put a million names
on the pension roll. What a com
mentary of fanaticism! Urover Cleve
land hit it hard when he said, "The
preachers are for expansion and coloni
zation and possession of the Philip
pines that they may convert the na
tives, to Christianity and save their
sonls. Of course we will have to kill a
few hundred thousand first, nnd what
is to become of their dead souls the
preachers do not tell us, but I suppose
they can arrange tnat.
And now, alter tuirty-nve vears of
vain experiment aud the wasting of
millions of money, the north confesses
its mistake, and is taking the back
track. South Carolina, Mississippi and
Louisiana have virtually eliminated the
negro from politics and retired him to

view of lleviews, in commenting upon
it says: "it is the opinion of a large
majority of the wisest friends of the
negroes that the franchise of voting in
political elections is more harmful thau
useful to them, and they can well afford
to allow white men to do the voting aud
hold the offices, if colored men are ac
corded justice in the courts and have
fair and equal opportunities to obtain
education and acquire property. It is
wholly harmful to colored men to be
appointed postmasters in white com
munities. Mr. Mckinley has made
mistakes in that direction. '
That is good honest talk and is the
t:nth, and is a sign ol repentance. 1
say repentance because it is the right
word, for it means to think again the
sober, second thought. We old time

tbe white man to buy his vote, and that

No gentleman who respects himself
will buy a negro's vote and as he can't
be elected without it he will not offer
for office. This is tbe general ruie mm
there are few exceptions. It applies to
State, county and municipal politics
and even to congressional elections. I
have known a candidate for mayor in
my town to contract with a leader
amoner tne necroes for mtv votes at
a head and he got them, and was elect

defeated him. Our best people are
uttorly tired of being dominated by
this purchasable element and have en
dured it about as long as we can. The
truth is apparent that we w:ll never
have an honest, decent, respectable leg

R aleigii The grand lodge of Ma
ions did a most extraordinary thing.
It remained in session from 8 o'clock
Wednesday night until 5 o'clock Thurs
day morning of last week. From 11
o'clock until it adjourned it discussed
the Oxford Orphan Asylum. There
were two points at issue one whether
the gifts of Mr. Duke, of that great
trust, the American Tobacco Company,
to the asylum, should or should not be
secerned: the other wbetber tbe ma
tron, a Massachusetts woman, should
not be replaced by a North Carolina
woman. After a spirited debate a res
olution was adopted setting forth that
the acceptance of the Duke gift, which
is more than $10,000, was entirely
proper. Another resolution was adopt
ed to the effect that a North Carolina
woman ought to be matron. The sal
ary of the matron is $1,000. The grand
lodge held a short session Thursday
morning, and then adjourned until
next January, to meet here. A vote of
thanks was tendered Francis D. Win
ston for his gift of a handsome Bible

Secretary of State Thompson, before
the insurance committee of the Legis
lature in Raleigh said there seemed
to be a popular impression that he re
ceived a great deal of money as per
centage upon insurance currency paid
into the treasury, but that his only fees
were 50 cents for issuing licenses to
insurance agents and $d for examining
the accounts of insurance companies
whose solvency was in question. He
admitted that he knew of no statute re
pealing the provision that all money
shall be turned into the treasury, and
said he collected those fees because his
predecessors had always done so. He
said his fees from insurance companies
amount to $3,500 annually, adding to
his salary, and he receives consider
ably more than 0,000 annually.

by University) in 1851, be remained there a
year and a ball and then became a student
at Dartmouth College, from which institu
tion he graduated in 1855. After leaving
college Mr. Dingley studied law, in 1855-'5tt
with Merrill A lesenuen, ol Auburn, and in
the latter year ho was admitted to the bar.
Instead of entering upon the practice of law
be decided to become a journalist, for which
profusion he always manifested a decided
taste. In September, 1856, he purchased the
Lewiston Journal, of which he bad been
practically editor while studying law and to
which he added a daily addition. In 1861, at
the age ot V.9. he was elected Representative
in m Auburn to the btate Legislature, in
which body he at once took.biKh raok, was
re-elected in 1862 and chosen Speaker of the
House at the session of 1863.
In 1873 Mr. Dingley was elected Governor
of Maine by about 10,000 majority. In 1874
he was re-elected by over 11,000 majority,
declining a third nomination in 1875. lie
was one ot tbe delegates at large from Maine
to the Republican national convention in
1876, served on the committee on resolutions
and was one of the sub-aommittee of Ave
who drafted the platform.
In 1881 Mr. Dingley was nominated by the
Republicans ot the 6econd congressional dis
trict of Maine to fill the vacancy in Congress
caused by the resignation or Wrr.. V Frye.
He was elected by a majority of over 6.000.
nearly twice as large as ever before given to
any candidate in that district. He was re
elected nine times. His first speech in Con
gress was made April 25, 1882, on "Protection
to American Shipping." President McEinley
tendered the position as Secretary of the
Treasury to Mr. Dingley, but he declined the
offer, preferring to remain in his position as
chairman of the ways aud means committee
and noor leader of the Republican majority
of the House. Under his leadership the
House, within sixteen days after tbe Fifty-
fifth Congress was convened in extraordinary
session, passed a bill revising the tariff. Mr.

The Eagan-Miles Row.
Washington (Special). The Eagau-
Miles controversy, or more properly
speaking, the attack made by General
Eagan on General Miles, has proved
the sensation of the day in Washington.
lhat an officer of tbe army sbould have
so far forgotten himself as to use such
blackguard language has astonished
everybody, and that he should have
gone this long without being called to
account by court-martial or otherwise
has added to the surprise. The action
of the war investigating commission in
sending back the testimony for revision
is regarded as a severe rebuke to the
commissary general, and it is confi
dently expected that a court-martial
will follow, despite the determination
of the investigation commission to pro
tect us witnesses from all barm.
Critical Situation at Manila.
Manila (By Cable. The situation
here is undoubtedly critical, but Major
tieneral Utis bas it well in band and
there is no such certainty of trouble as
many believe. The rebels are concen
trated on the outskirts of the town and
their leaders have issued strict orders
that they shall act only on the de
fensive. An accident might precipi
tate trouble, but the idea of a rebel
attack upon Manila is ridiculous, as
the Americans absolutely control the
position. Aguinaldo has republished
the second manifesto in reply to the
proclamation of General Otis which
was recalled on its first appearance.
but it has proved ineffectual.

THE SOUTH IN LITERATURE.
Thomas Nelson Pago, Joel C bandies'
Harris nnd Other Lights.
With new economic ideas, with, an
ever-increasing development of her
natural resources, with a more flexible
industrial system, a more rational at
titude toward manual labor, and more
enlightened methods ot public educa
tion, there has come a literary Inspir
ation impossible before, and the year
1870 has more than made amends for
the year 1830, says the Suwanee Re
view. The words which Sidney Lanier
wrote to his wife in 1870 may be taken
as reflecting the new energies of the
time: "Day by day ... a thou
sand vital elements rill through, my
soul. Day by . day the secret deep
forces gather which will presently dis
play themselves . In bending leaf and
waxy petal and in useful fruit and
grain." Hardly were these words writ
ten before Irwin Russell opened a new
province to American literature by his
skillful delineations of negro charac
ter. Two years later Maurice Thomp
son is hailed by Longfellow as "a new
and original singer, fresh, joyous and
true." In 1875 Sidney Lanier attains
national fame by his poem on "Corn"
and the six years of life that remainel
to him were to be filled with bursts of
imperishable song. In 1876 Joel Chan
dler Harris annexed the province
which Irwin Russell had discovered,
and "Uncle Remus" quietly assumed
a place in the world's literature of
humor and folk-lore never filled until
then. Two years later Miss Murfree,
better known as Charles Egbert Crad
dock, set all the magazine readers
wondering at the genius that could find
literary material In the illiterate
mountaineers of East Tennessee. The
decade closed with the appearance in
literature of George W. Cable, whose
"Qrandissimes" is ranked by not a few
orities as second only to the "Scarlet
Letter." The next decade witnessed
the advent of Thomas Nelson Page of
Virginia and James Lane Allen of Ken
tucky. Mr. Page's "Marse Chan" and
"Men Lady" not only presented the
relation of master and slave in a new
light, but furnished at the same time
expose of the latent, though perhaps
unintentional, injustice of "Uncle
Tom's Cabin." The historical value,
to the south of stories like these, to
say nothing of their literary charm,
cannot be easily overrated. Mr. Allen,
in his "Blue-Grasa Region of Kentuc
ky, added another state to the south
ern literary union, and spread a charm
of a storied past over a region that
had long ago led Henry Ward Beecher
to say: "Hereafter to me the twenty
third Psalm shall read: 'He maketh
me lie down in bine-grass pastnrea.
Don't neglect to talk sensibly at
times; it may be difficult; but it's nec
