SKXATK. "If Unholy All lan ee of Tur-IIcel to I J ! feat Senator Ilansom. Residents and non-residents of the "Tar-Heel" State are watching with fin usual interest a fight which is now in progress in th& United States Senate on which very probably depends a senator ship f rom Xfrth Oarplina. Mr. Ran s6m, who : represents the Eastern dis trict of North Carolina is seekin&r a re- election. He is one of the oldest (in service) and most influential point of members of the Senate. He has come out boldly for unconditional repeal, not withKtaoding, the fact that his succufcsor must soon be chosen. His colleague, Mr. Vance, is fighting the , administra tion withall the vigor, and it may be said virulence, that he can commauil ; Among; thoise who will contest for the' position nowoccupiad by Ransom is ex-' Governor: J arvis, of .Pitt" county, said to be one of the strongest men in the State. He-has tls hearty co-operation of Gpv ernor Carr, land it is understood, too, that Mr. Vane is a party to the combi nation , to .defeat his colleague. Mr. Jaivis ws flieutenant-governor under Mr. Vance, succeeding him in the gov ernorship; when that gentleman came to th IXnited Stages Senate. In addition to f these 1 there are other strong forces which will combine in .the attempt to de feat Mr. Ransom. " . Colonel Al M. Waddell, of Wilming ton, will l probably shy his castor into the1 senatorial arena. Himself as well as 3arvis were candidates against Ran som five years ago and he defeated thm both. Mr. I Waddell is said to be es pecially iaggrieved. this time because Rahsom hasi overridden his recommen dations in Wilmingtou. t J?reliminary to this figh t which will be Waged is tne attack .by Mc. Vance on the! nomination of Kope Elias, the famous '.'original Cleveland man" of North Carolina, whom Aft. . Cleveland hasi' named as cjjilector of internal reve nue Mi. Ransom " favors his confirma tioii. Vance has given it out that he will; be Idefeatel, and the result .is.' Wtttciud Leih vvih thc gritst intercut. It ig thought to be the decisive blow in the light jtor the senatorship. linx, here comes the strange part of the wheile stoty. I have it on unimpeach able testimony that Thomas Settle, the single republican member from North Caroiiua, liHs-undertaken the contract to mass .the j sblid republicaii vote of the Senate against Elias's confirmation. -1arion Buler, the leader . of the popu listf of Njorth Carolina, has been here all the week aitempting to get the populist members t the Senate to take tbe same action. : With those democratic senators that: Vance .can control, it ia hoped to preveut the confirmation. ' It is very evident that these two lead ers of thh populists and republicans of North Cajrolina regards tne confirmation of Elias as a very , good thing for the Democratic party, else they would not be fbundj working so hard to prevent'it. If this unholy alliance can succeed in unhir8ing ;Elias, then they will try their hand on Colonel Simmons, whose nom ination has been thns far held up by re queit ot.Mr. Vauce. " . It! resolves itself simply into a question of this combination's ability to deliver the goods, i Ransom is a tower of strength in the Senate. . He has been a member of tHat l)ody for the pst twenty-three years, and ' no inan stands higher with his colleagues. He avoids a fight as long as possible, but when aroiited he is a very ;dabjerouS man to tackl, as the junior Swuator from New York can, truthfully ; testify. Mp Vance indorsed his cousin for th position that Blias has bsn named, liansom ! and all the members of the Norfb Carolina delegation, whose dis tricts come under the jurisdiction of the collector; T settled on Elias. This is thought to be the tirue inwarJness of the The fight on Elias is the firstlick at Rausom-s returning to his seat in the Senate, j Well informed people here say that this! will' be the decisive blow.
