In the eastern district, thouch cool
the first of the week, warmer weather
and favorable raiii the latter part
greatly benefited crops. A - few local
heavy rains occurred : the amount of
eunshine was lees than the normal.
Though grass is getting troublesome,
iarmers generally have crorm clean
and in good growing condition. To
bacco is doing fairly well, but worms
have made their appearance. A cor
respondent remarks that it has a ten
dency to button out on account of
proceeding dry weather. Cotton is
nearly all chopped, improves elowly ;
may be considered nearly a month
ate. Corn, though very backward,
s improving, with good color but
poor etand. Injects are ttill doing:
some damage. Some corn isiufct com
ing up. In the extreme southern part
of the State it is beginning to tassel.
Corn is doing better than cotton, and
the proepact for good crop has increas
ed this week. Sweet potatoes are still
being set out. Some oats have been
cut ; and though some report heading
low, the crop will be an average.
W heat nearly ready for hai vest. Shin-

In the western district a fine week
with plenty of buii at the majority of
places during the evening or night, not
leaving ground too wet to plow next
morning, except where heavy rains oc
curreel in portions of Cabarrus and
Rowan counties. The extreme west has
been drier than other portions of the
State. A hail storm occurred in Surry
county, damaging w heat. Farmers are
better up with their work than in other
sections. The outlook is promising.
Corn is growing rapidly, and late
planted is coming up tine; a little dam
age by bugs is still occuring. Wheat
and rye are being cut. Wheat is good,
oats are fine, especially spring oats. A
few correspondents notice emut and
rust in wheat. Irish potatoes in bloom
and still attracting potato bugs. A
great fruit crop is probable in this sec
tion. Qrapes are free from rot; cher
ries are ripe. Gardens are looking
nice and clean.
A Ills Addition.
The Canton Manufacturing Com
pany recently decided to add to
their plant at Concord another mill, to
operate 5,000 spindles and about 125
looms. This mill will be erected on
the company's ground, near the reser
voir, a few hundred yards above the
mills now standing. This will neces
sitate new buildings not a few.
The Special Tax.
The State Treasurer has decided that
the special tax on boarding-houses, ho
tels, doctors, lawyers, and dentists, of
50 cents a room, and the $10 license,
must be enforced. It is one of the
laws made by the last Legislature.
All who are liable to this tax and have

GERMAN SHIP CANAL
AMERICAN WARSHIPS ADMIRED
The BIsscst Crowd Ever Assembled
In that Part of the Country.
A dispatch to the Charlotte Observer,
dated Thursday, thus describes the
opening of the wonderful German
Ship canal at Kiel, Germany:
With imperial pomp and ceremoney
and amid the plaudit of thousands
upon thousands of people, the great
canal connecting the Baltic and North
Seas was opened to commence today.
The weather was perfect, and the in
auguration ceremony was highly suc
cessful, save in one particular, the
grounding in the canal of the North
German Lloyd steamer, Kaiser Wil
helm II., one of the vessels that took
part in the naval parade. She took
bottom near Leveusau, near the east
ern extremity of the canal, but she
got off without damage. At 3 o'clock
Thursday morning the dispatch
boat Grille, entered ihe lock at Bruns
buttel, the western extremity of the
canal, and went through as a scout,
examining the banks and locks and
taking soundings in order to prevent, if
possible, the occurrence of an accident
when the great parade navigated the
canal to Kiel.
Long before the hour set for the start
ing of the parade, every available-space
aloDg the river front was pre-empted
by eager crowds, all anxious to see the
Kmperor, German PriDces, and other
royal personages, than which a larger
gathering has never been seen in this
part of the empire. The scene, as the
Kmperor and four of his eldest sons
drove along the river front last evening
to embark on the imperial yacht, IIo
henzollern, was one to be long remem
bered. Everything capable of being
decorated bore masses of flags and vari
colored bunting, and the crowd, filled
with holielay fervor, cheered incessant
ly as the Emperor and Princes passed.
The Ilohenzoliern passed into the
western water gate at 3.43 o'clock this
Homing. As she passed into the canal,
the entrance to which was crowded at
every point, a salute was fired by a
park of artillery stationed a little dis
tance from the entrance to the lock,
while the soldiery, composed of cavalry,
infantry and pioneers, liniDg both
banks, presented arms. At the same
time a military band played the German
The approaches were crowded with
military students, visitors and residents
of the vicinity, who cheered loudly.
The Emperor was on deck, and he bow
ed in response to the ovation he receiv
ed, exhibiting much emotion.
The Hohenzollern at 4 o'clock cut the
thread which had been stretched across
the entrance to the canal, and began
her passage through to Kiel, the bands
on shore playing national airs and the
crowds cheering. The other vessels in
the procession followed in this order:
The yacht Kaiser Adler, having on
board Prince Luitpold, Regent of Bava
ria, the King of Saxony, the King of
Vurtcmbur2 and Grand Duke Alexi3
of Russia. Then came the North-German
Lloyd steamer Kaiser Wilhelm II
w ith the German Princes and the for
eign ambassadors and ministers; the
Lensahu, with the Duke of Oldenburg;
the British royal yacht Osborne, with
the Duke of York, representing Qusen
Victoria; the Italian royal yacht Savoa,
with the Duke of Genoa, representing
King Humbert, the Austrian torpedo
catcher, Trabant, with Archduke
Charles Stephen, representing Emperor
Francis Joseph, the Hamburg-American
Line steamer Augusta Victoria,
with the members of the Bundesrath
and of the diplomatic corps; the same
line's stea mer Columbia, with members
of the Reichstag; the North German
Lloyd steamer Strave, also with mem
bers of the Reichst;ic, and the Prussian
Landtag, and the llambure-American
line steamer Rhaetia with members of
the Reichstag and Landtag.
The warships steamed through in this
Grille, Arethus, Surfer. Grosiastchy,
Marques tie Ensenade, Edda, VikiDg,
Marblehcad, Mircea, llecla, Alkamar.
The rear of the procession was brought
up by the Turkish yacht Fevaid.
At 10:30 o'clock at night everyone
who was expected to go through the
canal on the American cruiser. Marble
head, was on board that vessel, though
she did not leave her berth until this
morninjr. Among those on board were
Admiral Kirkland and staff, Captain
Evaus, Captain Shepard, the lieuten
ants, ensigns and marine officers from
each ship of the American squadron,
the Rev. Mr. Tripp, chaplain of the
cruiser San Francisco; Mrs. Louis II.
Moore, representing the United Press,
and the fleet surgeon and -fleet pay
master. The Marblehead sailed slowly
down the Elbe and anchored at Bruns
buttel at 6 o'clock, awaitiDg her turn to
go into the canal.
The Marblehead is very popular, ow
ing to the fact that her officers have
shown every possible courtesy to visit
ors, and she was cheered last evening
by the occupants of hundreds of steam
and electric launches and thousands of
people on shore
At 11:30 p.m. the Hohenzollern was
in sight of the Iloltenau locks at the
cast end of the canal. The immense
crowd of people who had assembled on
the Iloltenau festplatz, to witness the
spectacle, set up a mighty cheer as the
imperial vacht was sighted. Five min
utes later she had steamed up to the
locks, w hich she entered at 12:35. The
Emperor stood up on the high bridge,
behind the m tin mast, attired in the
full uniform of an admiral of the Ger
man navy, si:2cesticg the well-known
picture, " Wiih full steam ahead." The
bands of the regular and veteran troops
struck up "Heil der ricgerkranz,"
which the Kaiser acknowledged by a

fired an imperial salute. It was a grand
spectacle. On each sl4e of the lock
was drawn up a company of the First
Foot Guards of Poisdam, with a band,
and a company of the Kaiser Flensburg
Regiment were lined on the north shore,
in front of the harbor officers, with the
marine band. The admirals and gen
erals stood upon the centre rampart
which divides the sections of the lock.
The immense crowds kept up con
tinuous cheerings as the Honenzollern
passed through and went to her an

Nearly eisrht yars have now passed since,
on June 3, 1SV7. Emperor William I. laid the
foundation fetor" of the Iloltenau lock'of
this canal, near Kiel. Tho President of the
Reichstag handed th Emperor a trowel and
hammer, and the Emperor, tapping the
etone. pronounced the work to be one of
peace, honor, defence and progress. Then,
various Trince?, ?Iinisters, members of the
Bundsrath and other functionaries each
struck the Etone three times. The practical
task was pushed forword vigorously, and It
Is said that nearly 8000 officials and men were
kept at work upon it continuously. The
canal is about sixty-four miles long.
Its course from Holtenau is through the
route of the old Elder Canal and thence by a
course as direct as possible, and yet with not
a few decided swervings from a straight line,
It reaches the Elbe a little east of Brunsbut
tel. The Eider Canal, which was, of course,
a Danish enterprise, lia i existed, over a cen
tury, the advantage of avoiding the long de
tour around Cape Skagen having been ob
vious for generations. Germany, in taking
up the new project of a thip canal, had large
ly in view it3 strategic uses, but it also had
Its advantages on the commercial side, and
these, to a greater or less extent, the whole
'world can share. In order that the canal
,may be constantly employed and earning
imoney, it will be lighted at night by elec
tricity. The level is fixed for that of the
Baltic; and in order to protect it from cur
rents so strong as to impede progress, huge
locks have been built. The width of the canal
at the top is sixty metres and twenty-two at
the bottom, and, as Is obvious, large mer
chant thiDS can meet and pass each other,
while, with a view to the demand of the
very largest warships or other vessel!, there
are half a dozen side stations in which to
accommodate one of the passers. Very hig'i
tides are to be feared only rarely, and the
heavy locks provide 1 offset this SDure or
trouble. As a componsHtion for th" out

OLNEY DEFINES THE POSITIOX
Americans Should Assume Toward
Cuba a Insurgents.
Secretary Olney has practically defined the
position American citizens shouid assums
toward Cuban insurrection, in a letter to a
Cuban sympathizer, the cashier of a bank,
who wrote to Mr. Olney lor advice with re
gard to receiving contributions to tha in
surgents cause on deposit at the institution
with whPh he is connected. The bank cashier
wrote as follows:
"Farmers and Merchant' National Bank,
Wi-o, Tex. lion. Richard Olney, Secretary
of State: I have been a pproated by alleged
agerjts of the Cuban Insurants with the view
of securing this tank's consent to act as a
depository for contributions from sympa
thizers In the United States, but have with
held consent until such time as I eould hear
from your department a to whether we
would, by so doing, lay ourselves liable to
prosecution under tbe neutrality laws. This
we desire to avoid not only technically but
morally as well for we are too loyal to our
country to seek to overture, ln. any sense,
T, mysflf, am fn entire sympathy with the
cause of Cuban independence, and I attri
bute the singling out of this tank to that
favt, lyicg known to a few who are identified
with the eause in that eoantry. It is nesliess
to say that from a business standpoint it
would result in great advantage to this bank,
and I hope you will see your wayclearln
allowing u? to publish acceptance of the trust
to the world. Jous P. Masset,
To this the secretary cf state repued:
'Whether the ba:;k or its offWrs could b
criminally prosecuted under the neutrality
laws of the United State. because the bank
had knowingly male itself a depository f
tho funds contributed by sympathizers In
the United States, in support of the present
Cuban insurrection, is a question as to which
opinions may differ, and which can be satis
factory settled only by the adjudication ot
tbe proper eourt. Should a bank engage in
such a transaction, and. as you suggest,
publish its a 'ceptaae or sa"h a trust to the
world, it would be my duty to -lall upon the
department of justice to test tht question
whether or not the proceeding was a crime
against the United States. It might also be

Wake's Grape Oullook.
The outlook for tbe grape crop in
Wake County is very tine. Mr, Sny
der, a large dealer in Boston, has
Ioeu at Raleigh and says Whiting Bros',
vineyard is tho fiattd lie has seen in
the Soul b. The grapes in tLis vine
yard are nil Delawares aud Niagaras.
There arc 15,(00 vines. There are
also 10,000 blackberry, or rather dew
berry, vines and those are now yield
ing about 40 bushels daily. Tbe yield
per vine is from 1) to 3 quarts. The
Lucrctii is found to be the heM variety.
Thirty thoussud bunches of Niagara
crapes are covered with paper backs.
This is found to be tbe best way to
save them from tbe rot to which in
this State they appear to be
subject. The grapevine aresplended
ly fruited. There aro a number of
vincvarJs near Rnleijb. The common
and early varieties like the Champion,
etc., Lave leen abandoned.
