wero under arms to preserve order

into oflioe of civil governor of Havana,

representative of Gen. Gomez, four or
five Cuban officers and fifteen report

with the rolis of the Cuban army, sat
at a long table at the headquarters of
the Kighth Regiment. A bag of gold

plications for a share of it.
The spectators spent the time in dis-ru-Bin'

anti-trust banquet here Thursday night
was attended by 1,445 leading Demo
crats from all parts o! the country.
Many able addresses were mad . In.
terest centered chiefly in the speech of
Hon. W. J. Bryan. Among other
things he said: The influence of
these trusts has become so enormous
that the people, without respect to
party, are asking themselves how the
evil can be remedied. The purpose of
the trusts is to control the product of
some articles of merchandise, and the
methods employed are, first, the union
of all Individual factories under one
management, or in one corporation,
and, second, the crushing of new rivals.
A monopoly when once complete not

buy products, but it also dictates

continue we shall find an industrial
aristocracy growing up in the United
States, which will prove at destructive
of our ideals as a landed aristocracy
would. The principle of mononolv is
incompatible with our institutions.
Man's necessities compel him to be

but one seller the purchaser is com

government would be guilty of gross
neglect if it permitted an individual to

Very Warm Weather, With
The weather during the first half of

1899, was very warm and dry, the tem
perature rising to above 90 degrees at
most places. Light rains occurred
on the ICth and 17th in the west, and
were general on the 16th in the cen
tral and eastern portions of the State.
Hail did considerable minor damage
on the 18th in parts of the following
counties: Green, Craven, Pitt, Car
teret, and Pamlico, and alight damage

ties on the 16th or 17th. The latter
part of the week was cooler and gen
erally cloudy, with more rain on Mon
day (22d). Whilo tho temperature
for the week was above the normal,
the 19tb, 20th and 22d were cool
enough to check the growth of vege
tation to eomo extent, especially cot
ton. On the whole reports continue favor
able. Rain is needed in south-central
and western counties; elsewhere con
ditions are satisfactory. Considering
tho lateness of sprint?, crops are now
fairly well advanced. Farmers have
been aative in clearing crops of grass
and weeds. Replanting has been com
pleted in sections where crops were
destroyed by hail last week. Planting
is nearing completion, though much
tobacco has yet to be set out in north
ern counties and the settiner of sweet
potato flips is ju6t under way.
Chopping cotton is now general.
Cotton is nearly all up except replant
ed, and the stand is good. Cool nights
are beginning to effect tho crops un
favorably. Corn is well grown for
the length of time it has been in the
ground ; the stand is excellent ; the
nrst cultivation is in progress every
where. Cut worms are injuring the
crop in many counties, especially on
low lands. Early tobacco plants are
being worked out, the crop is growing
well ; flea-bugs are damaging tobacco
in a few counties. Transplanting has
not yet been completed. Peanuts and
rice are up. Wheat is heading low,
but appears to show a long, well de
veloped head. The Irsh-potato crop,
from present appearances, will be
large and fine; plants aie blooming
generally. Digging will soon begin in
the east. Irish-potato bugs are nu

dens are backward they show steady
improvement, and vegetables are
abundant in the markets. The straw

There is a proverb over two thousand years old, and as true now as it wan
when first written: "Beware of the Greeks, especially when they bear gifts"
Timeo Danaoa el dona fercntca, as the old Romans quoted it from Virgil, but
in plain English, "Beware the enemy bearing gifts." This ancient proverb
finds modern application in recent donations by the representatives of the great
trusts and other aggregations of capital, secured by the pauperization of the
people, donations ostensibly made for the education of the nation's youth.
There are some who have deemed this mereiy an instance of vanity on the part
of men who, having more money than they knew what to do with, think to im
mortalize themselves and earn fame by returning to public- useja small part of
the sums they have abstracted from the common stock, by syndicates and
trusts. There was never a greater mistake. These men are not devoid of
vanity, but they are not wooed by it to confer benefits upon those whom they
have injured. There is a deep, well-laid design at the bottom of this giving,
and its motive is self-interest. 1 have bofore me a pamphlet, issued by that
eminently respectable association, the American Bankers' Association. It is a
pamphlet which is not sent to every one; in fact, is a rather private and ex
clusive affair. Its cover, like its contents, is gold tinted. At the session o
that association, as far back as 1889, it passed this resolution:
Resolved, That the Executive Council is hereby directed to carefully con
sider, and, if possible, devise some feasible plan whereby this As ociation may
encourage or promote the organization of a school, or schools, of Finance
among our institutions of learning, and report upon the same to the next Convention.
At the next convention, in 1890, in the address of Professor James, de
livered by request and approved by vote of the association, he said it was a
pleasure to discuss the subject of establishing these schools before a body of
men "who have unusual means of influencing public opinion in regard to it,"
and added, that it was possible "to revolutionize every college in the country."
He reported that Mr. Wharton had already "secured the establishment of one
such school," at the University of Pennsylvania, bf the gift of one hundred
thousand dollars to the University, fie went on to say that "beyond all
question, in this country Uie greaLmerohaoi-r prince, the railroad president,
the great manufacturer and banker, have succeeded to the place of power once
held by the great oiator, statesman, lawyer, or clergyman. The professional
class in losing ground, the business-world gaining it. Whether for weal or
woe, the control of government, of society, of education, of the press, yes, even
of the church, is slipping more and more rapidly into the hands of the business
classes, and it is this class, which, to an ever increasing extent, will dominate
onr practical and social life."
"Down with manhood, up with tho dollar. " The proposition is at least
dearly stated. Further along in his address, Professor James speaks of the ex-

together for such purposes, are characterized as having "the narrowness and
selfishness of the meanest hayseeed of them all."
This address was endorsed by a vote of the association, afterward printed
and discreetly distributed at its expense. An argument that seems to have
carried weight, was, that the students in the proposed schools of finance would
become journalists, lawyers and college professors, and, by their influence on
public sentiment, would well justify the argument suggested.
In the plan of these schools adopted by the Convention, the necessity of
"preserving great estates" is prominently brought forward, and it U observed
that the students of institutions thus "aided," become free from
"delusions," and instructed as to "the necessity of permanent nuiformity in
tegrity of the coin unit." It is easy to understand what. "delusions" the Amer
ican Bankers' Association proposed to educate out of the minds of students.
Among the numerous extracts from letters to the Association from heads
of universities and colleges, anxious to be prostituted, and which are published
in this pamphlet, is one from a Southern college president, in which he says:
"It is better to have such schools as integral parts of long-established and
popular institutions, than to set them off by themselves. In this way they
can reach a large number of prepared and influential students, sooner than
in any other way. The study of finance and public economy infringes on
the question of human rights. And as moral principles depend for their
power to make vivid and lasting impressions, on religious sanctions, it must
follow that those sohoola in which the ethics of Christianity find a place, are
best suited to teach the rights and wrongs of financial policies and economic
It takes no keen insight to say what sort of financial teaching the Amer
ican Bankers' Association proposed for these schools to be established in col
leges, by gifts of one hundred thousand dollars each, and for which church
colleges were to be preferred. Another of the nnmerous letters from college pres
ident), published in the Bame pamphlet, with approval, nays that every college
shonld have an endowed school of finance under the providence of the Ameri
can Bankers' Association, and adds: "Wealth could not be better employed
than in the endowment of schools of finance;" and another says: "It seems to
me they are the most efficient antidote against heresies on enrrency questions."
It is hardly necessary to point out that these gentlemen deem as "heresia" any
theory concerning currency, taxation, or government that in any way menaces
the monopolization of capital and natural privileges.
Thus, as in the scripture parable, while the people slept, the enemy is
busy sowing tares. As far back as 1890, as this pamphlet shows, the bankers,
aided and abetted by certain college, were laying deliberate plans to captnre
the financial educatio'n of college youth. How far this plan has been carried
out, we do not know, as tho reports on this matter have been suppressed since
1890. We do know that donations to colleges, and the establishment of finan
cial schools have been frequent, and announced with intense laudation, as
well by the newspapers that are controlled by the money power an by those
that 'are honest, but deceived as to the real motives of these gifts.
The Turkish Janizaries were Christian boys taken from their parents when
young, reared and drilled as Mohammedans, and then used as a select body of
troops to repress the aspirations for liberty of those of their own blood. We
want no imitation of that policy in the colleges of this land.
