The clatter of cups and saucers,
the cheerful tinkle of silver against
porcelain, the murruur of cultivated
voices and occasional burata of
chef rful laughter, announced that
Mis. Daynor and her friends were
making merry over their afternoon
Strangely eooagh, to the new
comes, hesitating just outside the
drawing-room doois, the pleasant
medley of sounds did not seem re-,
assuring ; she grew very pale, and
a close observer would have noticed
that her hands were trembling. Jt
was too late, however, to beat a re
treat, for the stately butler had aU
ready drawn the curtains aside, aDd
the next inoineut her own name ech
oed on her ears : "Miss Eustace."
A. sudden silence fell upou the
group about the tea table, everyone
seemed vaguely uncomfortable; ev
ery one, perhaps, save the young
hostess, who glided over the caipet
with outstretched hand :
"My dear Miss Eustace, I am glad
to see you, come up to the fire ; the
spring afternoons are still quite
cool, and a bearthside chair is by no
meaus to be despised. I believe
you are acquainted with my friends :
Lady Grant, Mr?. Geoffrey French,

Not any ? You will delight my
husband, he says I have destroyed
my nervous system by my daily li
baf ons. How have you been amus
ing yourself lately i Are you fond
of teunis ?"
And now for the first time Miss
Eustace spoke, her heart was throb
bing madly, but she gave no outward
sign that she knew herself to be
under inspection, she threw back
her head with a little proud gesture
and said, carelessly : 'I do not
play, the game exhausts me ; my
father has requested me not to."
Lady Grant losefrom her seat. f visit her, Denham is a magnificent

keenly at Mrs. Daynor.

and quietly ignoring the fact that
that worthy lady had arrived but a

"it would be selfish, of me to try and

Miss Farsworthy could have
laughed aloud it was so like Kitty

she pushed back her chair and came
forward into the light.
"I, too, must tell you goodby,''
she said, languidly. "Mrs. French

"Ah, I atn sort y. Lady Adelaide,

Nelly Farsworthy, glancing back
as she left the coom, had the satis
of knowing that Mrs. Daynor was
preparing for a tete atete with that
Eostace girl ; she had drawn her
chair close to the hearth, the fire
light was piaying on her sunbrown
hair and casting quaint shadows on
her earnest face. Her eyes were
full of sympathy.
"Were we not rather uncivil, leav
ing all together V said little Mrs.
French, as she settled herself back
iu one comer of the Farsworthy
"Uncivil f well, yes : I hope Kitty
Daynor will learn not to invite
guests to her house "whom the coun

"Not recognize T that lovely creat

'Oh, 1 grant you she is beautiful.
I never saw such wonderful eyes.''
"Bat so proud, so cold looking !
She is too young to be unhappv.
Tell me her story, Nelly, we have a
long drive ahead of a, and I should
very much like to hear.'1
Nelly Farswoitby gazed thought
fully oat ot the carriage window;
she was a graceful, gentle looking
girl, but just now her face wore so
bitter an expression that Mrs.
French exclaimed involuntarilv :
"How like your father, I never saw
the resemblance before. Now be a
good child, remember that I am a
'stranger within your gates,' and tell
me about Miss Eustace.''
"It is not eo interesting after all ;

Eustace, the richest laud owner in

over a high c iff. His nephew, a
wild, reckles.j fellow, who gambled
and drank, and generally miscon
ducted himself, and they say, no
favorite of old air Hugh's, fell heir
to the title and fortune. When the
old man's body was picked up at the
foot of Rolney every one. supposed
his death to be accidental ; but af
terwards, when it was learned that
the uncle and nephew bad parted in
anger that very morning, because of
the older man's refusal to pay the
younger one's gambling debts, peo

it was furthermore made pablic that
Stephen Eustace had been seeu in

the hour of the old man's accident,

"You would not have had her ac

"Ob, no, no; but when I think of
her sending him away, ot her mak

do not know what I could say to
her. Poor Rodger ! Ah, here we
are!" The carriage swept grandly
through the park gates, and a few
minutes later drew up before the
gray old hall.
"At home at last," said Mrs.
French, with a gratified sigh.
"So bored, then ? My poor Ma
bel, forgive me.''
"Not bored, but tired. Nelly,
when you have dressed for dinner,''
they were wearily climbing tbe
steps, "come into my room, I want

Miss Eastace shook her head, her

white as the summer gowns she

break in her usual tranquil voice :
"I gave orders, my servants weie
not to admit you."
"Your servants?' his laugh ang

She put up a trembling hand, as
if to ward off his light speeches.

hers; their eyes met ; his, bright
with affection and uuselfish joy ;
hers, dark with feeling aud some
thing like shame. Suddenly, he
stooped and clasped his around
about her : "What is the use of all

roughly ; "I love you ! You do not
quite despise me. As tor your fathv,

She clung to him, weeping pas

sweet influence of his love.

brokenly : "I prayed for you not to

"My sister ?" he broke iu ; "what

"Well, yes, a sister-in-law who

Legislature or 1MKJ,
To the EdiU-r of The Enterprise.
Newtox, N. C, March 30lh, 93
The Genhral Assembly of 1S93, in
the main, was composed of good
conservative men. In each houe
there were some of the leading men
of the State. This is generally the
cae when the party gets scared.
No Legislative body is perfect, we
therefore take it for granted that
some things were done that ought
not to h ive been eloue ; yet many
good laws were enacted, aud mauy
unwise laws repealed, or modified.
Where so many men of different
views, representing varied interests
meet iu a legislative body, one of
the most importaut things is to pre
vent unwise legislation.
Hundreds ot bills whether wiee
or otherwise, failed to pasi both
houses, and are sleeping the long
Tteie were more watchful, vigi
lant, active members in this body

The thing that most coucerns the
people is appropriations. No gov
eminent cn be tuu without them.
The demand of our charitable insti
tutions is on the increase, even more
so thau the iucrease of population,
With all the provision heretofore
made by tne State, a large perceut
of the unfortunate are not cared for,
as they should be for want ot room
io receive them to our institutions.
Humanity demands, that the insane
the deaf, dumb and blind, shouldtbe
properly cared for.
There are also a few homeless old
Confederate soldiers to be provided
for. Thank God there are less than
100 of these at present. All these
things require a great deal of money
It is giatilying to see how well
thtce institutes are beiDg run. The
management of the State Hospital
at Morganton is an honor to our
State, as well as to the gentlemen
who run it. Every citiz?u ought to
make a visit to the State iustitu.
tions at Morgauton, you will be
tupnsed when yon do so.
The legislature of lSyl, made an
appropriation for the purchase of
additional property at Morganton.
for the location of an institute for
the Deaf and Dumb, so as to sepas
rate them froai the blind. The work
was commenced, the walls 'are up,
and it required more mcney to com.
plete and equip these buildings
ready for occupancy.
The legislature ot 1891, also star
ted a Nomal and industrial school
at Greeds'joro for Girls. We were
called on to help this institution. It
required more money to finish and
squip this scbool.
This is said to be one ot the best,
or promises to be one of the best io
the State. I know there is some
complaint iu regard to the estab
lishment of thi school, but if it was
a mistake, it was uot made by the
legislature of 1S93- You must go
back of tnat to lodge the complaint.
Let us see who are to blame t The
legislature of 1891 started this
stitutipn, but that legislatare claim
ed that they did so because of the
First the State Alliance demand
Second the Teachers Assembly
Third the Kings Daughters de
So let no one ceusure the legisla
ture of 1S93, for the money appro
priated to this institution. Th
constitution requires us to take care
of the propety of the University of
North Carolina. So it required
money to make some repairs there.
Absolutely necessarv to prevent the
ruin of the buildiugs. Than there is
the Agricultural and Mechanical
College for boys, it had so have
mon. So it goes.
The Penitentiary authorities ask
ed for 870,000.00 to help run the be
quest left us by the Republican par
ty. We refused to make this appro
priation. Don't know bow they will
make cot. We have started ihem
under a new regime.
It is not Decessary to go over the
whole list of appropriations. I only
mention the most important. Oh
yes, I haven't mentioued the most
important one of all in the eyes of
certain people ami certain newspa
500.00 FOR THE BALL."
Yes the legislature did appropri
ate ."00.00 for the purposes ol the
inauguration, or so much thereof as
was necessary. Tney had to fi!e an
itearzpd account and it did nut
take 8500.00. Those who favored
the bill urged it om the ground that
we had a farmer for Governor we
would be accused of not making the
appropiution because tne Governor
is a farmer. Captain Kitchen, stat
ed on the lioor of the House that if
any persou or couuty was disaatis

For the information of certain P.
P. friends, I will state that we vot

8500 00 as the journals will show
wnen published. I didu't do so be
cause Carr, was a farmer, but be
cause I could aee no reason why a
Governor in a Democratic govern
ment, could not enter upon his du
ties simply by taking the oath, just
as members of General Assembly,
Judges etc. Notwithstanding we
were compelled to make the forgo

This is lower thau at any time be"

allowing stock to run over farms
under cultivation along public high
ways, but it failed in the House
We tried to pass a dog law, but
it failed as usual,
One of the most important mat.
ters before the legislature was to
devise some better system of work
ing the roads. I am sorry we could
not reach a more satisfactory solu
tion of this ltnportaat matter. The
road congress met. Representative
meu from nearly every county in
the State were present. We de
pended on them giving us some
thins elefinite, but the did not.
Hundreds of suggestions and pros
positions were made in the road
Congress and in the legislature. To
harmonize and utilize all this was
the question. "Woo was sufficient
for these things V How I wish ev
ery man who thinks he could ar
range all the things could have a
seat in the legislature for one ses
sion. At the 'suggestion ot our
Register ot deeds and Board of
Commissioners 1 succeeded in hav
ing the road law of 18S9 repealed.
It related mainly to the opening of
new roads, and was a failure.
We thought the crying demand
was for more money. Bat just as
soou a bills were introduced in the
legislature to establish banks, and
give us more money, the cry of op
position goes up from the wise on
financial matters from 'Berheba
even unto Dan." V. does lock to
me that if congress will repeal that
10 per cent tax, and allow us to
have state banks cf issue (properly
guarded) as before the war, that the
iucrease in the volume of circula
tion would be bouud to benefit our
people very greatly.
Let all the national bank bills,
gold or fcilver come that will come,
and give us the state bank bill also,
then we will surely have more mon
ey. The state money would have a
tendency to remain at home. The
business was doue with this kind of
money before the war. State banks
don't fail any oftener than National
There is trouble now in Nashville

We passed a bank bill, not a very
unsatisfactory one. For want of
time to agree on something better
it was passed. I confessed that I
don't understand the financial sys
tem of cur government, I never pro
fessed to know.
But Mr. Editor, I am thankful
that we have hundreds of men all
through our country who profess to
know all about the intricate4subject.
It has been the study of the best
statesman of the past, and it has
been cotdesed by them to be the
biggeat question with which to con
tend. It is left for the men ot our
day to solve. Not by those whom
we have considered us leaders, but
by meu among oh, who have been
considered of the "rank and tt'le,''
We are to b congratulated that tho
greatest question that ever con
fronted any government, is about
to be solved. We hear a great
ileal said about Jefferson and Jack-
sou in connection with banks. A
greal financial panic followed Jack
sou'a administration. I ive an exi
tract from the diary of Rey. C. K.
Marshall of Mississippi, April 12th
1837. "The hardest time in money
matters that we ever experienced,
people are cursing Andrew Jackson,
the man who a few years ago was
receiving their highest mead of
praise, is now being abused for the
financial straight in which our ooun
try is placed.'' So then if we look
back we will find that co public
man escaped abuse, aud even o'd
"Hickory ' was accused of not know,
ing how to manage the fiuaucies of
the government, when it was not
h ilf as largo as it is now.
REPEAL OF ALLIANCE CHABTEK.
The Progressive farmer, Cauca
sian, and other papers are raising a
howl over the repeal ot the alliance
charter. I want to say that the
bill to repeal the charter was fram
ed by alliaucemen, and was intro
duced in the House, aud passed be
fore I ever knew such a measure
was contemplated. Even democrats
iu r.ho House of Representatives
who were riot alliance men, knew
nothing of such a bill until it was
introduced by Gen. Vance (who ii
an allianceman in good standing)
and but npon its passage. It pas
sed becanse tbe alliance members
asked for it, and stated they had a
new charter which tbe introduced
to take its place,
Tbe Senate gave the alliance offi
cers a hearing before the committee;
aud adopted a substitute or amend
ment, which allowed all alliancemen
who had money in tbe business fund
to withdraw tbe same. There was
only three People's party men In
the Senate, and they voted for tbe
measure. It was sent back to tbe
House, and the House concurred in
the Senate amendroenr. Now why
abuse the democratic party for thin
measure when it was an alliance
measure and even supported by
third party men ?
Alliancemen told me tbe Jaw did
no effect anybody any Butler, Gra
ham, Worth, Barnes & Co., who
were receiving salaries. I took no
part iu the matter, because I felt it
was not my fight. There are a num.
ber of cuauces iu the law that are
important, in cases ot lynchings, as
signments etc., but I must stop and
ask pardon for the length of this
article. I hope the Enterprise will
be rewarded for the gallant fight it
made in behalf ol democracy, and
for thi3 and all other favors.
