It is said that Harrison's eye is
on the tobacco tax, as a means of
popularizing his administration in
the tobacco producing States.
They tell us that the receipts from
tobacco aggregate a little over
?3i,IKK),tXX) a year. Congressman
Browne, of Indiana, regards a revis
ion of the revenue system a the
most important question awaiting
the action of Congress, and favors
a repeal of the tax on tobacco, anil
on alcohol used in the arts, and a
reduction of the tax on sugar.

Cor a tune Tanner w as the luck
les victim of loneliness. In all
the Cn ion he as absolutely coin
pan ion less. His isolation gave
name to his characteristic methods,
and Tannerism entered the nomen
clature of American politics. But
;s there is no duck wifVo.C its
mate, .-o ; here is no character wun
on t its duplicate.
i; now seems tint Tauneiisin
was pract iced before Tanner came
to play upon the stage in the na
tional drama. 'Tiernting certifi
cates'' was the g'rm aud essence of
Tannerism, which, originating be
fore the distinguished Corporal,
gained a local habitation and a
name through hini.
Tanner is very happy just now.
He is out of the woods and his
sense of loneliness is gone. If he
is in a city he sees boon companions
all around hun. One there is who
is worthy to be taken to his bosom,
so far as Tannerism can make
bosom friends. Tanner has replied
to his accusers, and in his reply he
cites the case of Gen. Powel! of
Illinois, who recently withdrew his
application for the Commissioner
shift, and saye:
"Justice to the gentlemen in the
bureau departments that I should
state that very early in my ex
perience as Commissioner my at
tention was called to the Powell
case as a precedent. I have not
the slightest desire to embarrass
the honorable Secretary, bnt he has
the right in judging ollicials of
the Pension Bnreau to bear in mind
that only four days before I took
office they saw his personal friend,
who had been his personal candi
date for the Commissionership,
walk into the office, I am informed,
with a note from the Secretary to
the Commissioner, asking him to
do all he could for his friend,
Colonel Powell. Ihe Colonel had
a gunshot wound in the shoulder,
for which he was drawing a quarter
pension. Had he been a private it
would have been a month. As
he was a colonel it was .7.oO. I
am informed that a medical exami
nation by the Office Board was
suggested to him. He declined to
submit to it. He had not been
examined since Feb. o, 1S75, bnt
his case was rerated then and there,
and his tension increased to full '
rate, dating back to the day of his
discharge, and Commissioner Black
and Seereta.y Noble signed the
certificate which gave Colonel
Powell a little over G,300.''
Accepting Mr. Tanner's state
ment as correct, and the case is a
ni neb more tlagrant one than that
of Senator Mauderson or any other
with which Tanner is connected.
Tanner and Noble are in the
same boat, and Harrison is Cap
tain. If the administration had
not set the example of asing the
offices of government for theae-j
complishment of personal ends, and
the creation of individual fortunes,
no subordinate would have dared
to make the venture; but when
Harrison gave offices to his family
even to the third aud fourth degree
of consanguinity, his subalterns
felt that they could not pay him a
higher compliment than to follow
CONVENTION OK J)t MOCKATIC
CUTIS OK NEW YORK.
No more important assemblage
has occurred in many a day than
the convention of Democratic clubs
at the Hoffman House, in the city
of New York, on last Tuesday.
AmoD the more important features
were the address of Gov. Hill, the
letter of Mr. Cleveland and the
platform adopted. We cannot give
the whole proceedings, but will
present extracts from the speech of
Gov. Hill, the letter of Mr. Cleve
land and the platform.
Gov. Hill in his speech said:
"A year ago the party pledged
itself in favor of tariff reform. We
reiterate this pledge this year and
propose to fis;ht it out to the bitter
end. We believe that a sufficient
amount of revenue should be raised
to provide for a proper administra
tion and no more. The surplus
should also be reduced.
"The louger the present adminis
tration continues in power it will
be shown how just and right was
the administration of President
Cleveland. Loud cheers Presi
dent Cleveland fulfilled the expec
tations of his party. He conducted
the Government with an eye to the
Mr. Cleveland closed his ad
mirable letter as follows :
"I look to the ascendancy of the
principles upon which true De
mocracy rests, which will be greatly
aided by the activity of leagues,
such as yours, to secure us from
wasting extravagance, from dema
gogic pretense, from sectional
bitterness, and from the widespread
corruption of our suffrage. Could
labor and effort have greater or
higherincentives than the accom
plishment of these results ?"
And the platform reaffirms al
legiance to the principles of the
"league and to thedemocratieparty.
It declares its devotion to the prin
ciples ot tariff reform contained in
the St. Louis platform of 1SSS, and
in the Mills bill, and expresses the
belief that it is the duty of the
Democratic party to continue the
contest for the establishment of
those principles until they are em
bodied in law. It also favors bal
lot reform aud approves the plan
for that purpose suggested by
Gov. Hill in his veto of the Saxton
bill, and it congratulates Grover
Cleveland for the 'wisdom and
bravery with which he fought for

I don't mean by an honest man one
who pays his debts. That's the meanest
sort of honesty. Any man of sense or
decency will do that if he can.
Some church people, however, are
afraid to walk along 60me streets for

If my boy was to go around and say

daddy or not I'd wear him out. What,
then, does God think of his adopted
children who doesn't know whether
he's God's child or not . Why, its a
elam on the whole family.
A man who is prospering in business j
doesn't hide the fact. You say he looks
like a well to do man. A man who is ;
prospering in religion can no more hide j
it than he can put out the sun. He
phows it in his family, in his busness I
and in his amusements.

spiritual, social and mental condition
by organizing a Young Men's Christian
Association. This was done in May
' last, and the meetings have been kept
up regularly since then. There are
now about 100 members.
Wilmington Star: The British stea
mer Osmanli was cleared Wednesday
by Messrs. Alex. Sprunt & Sou, with
j sixty-five hundred bales of cotton, the
value of which is three hundred and
eighteen thousand and six hundred
dollars, the weight being 3,186,092
poundB. This is the largest cargo of
cotton ever shipped from this port.
Willmington Review: We spoke
some weeks ago of the fine tobacco crop
raised by Mr. D. W. Rencher, near
Willard. On Saturday last Mr. Rencher
sold the proceeds of a half acre of this
crop for 898.05, which is at the rate of
196.10 per acre. Let some of the best
farmers in Pender county, who have
good tobacco lands lying idle, put on
their thinking caps and reason this
matter out to its logical conclusion.
Sanford Express: The Egypt (N. C.)
coal shaft has been emptied of its water.
The shaft is 425 feet. Some of the coal
was exhibited this week at the State
Fair. The compa-ny say they will put
the coal on the market by the 1st of
November, and will sell it from S3. 00
te $4 00 per ton. rTwo Northern saw
mill men have purchased 22,000 acres
of pine land in Moore and adjoining
counties and will establish saw-mills
and planing-mills on this land.
Goldsboro Argvs: The fiBh business
now coming up over the A. & If. O.
Railroad is something immense; in fact
larger than it has ever been. Up to
date there has been handled by the ex
press employees ia this city since Octo
ber 1st over 3,000 packages, o? more
than an average of 15u per day. This
comes within about 130 of the whole
amount handled last October. There
was more than three times as much
handled in September, 1889, as in Sep
tember, 1888. Good for Goldsboro.
Charlotte News: The ladies of Char
lotte are busily engaged today in ar
ranging for the reception of the dele
gates and visitors to the Methodist State
Missionary Convention, which will
meet in' the Tryon street Methodist
church next Friday, (Oct. 25), as noted
in the News two weeks ago. There will
be between 75 and 100 delegates. The
Methodist churoh is being prepared for
the occasion, and perhaps the most
striking feature of I the decoratioa will
be a ship to represent the "Missionary
Ship." It will be seven feet long, and
will be arranged in front of the pulpit.
This is strictly a ladies convention, as
we understand there are only two men
eonneoted with it.
Snow Hill Baptist: Since our last
issue Messrs. John Murphey, Benjtmin
Taylor, Henry Ham, Matthew Carr and
Mrs. Abner Rouse, all of this county,
have pat eed over the river to the 'great
beyond. Mr. Murphey had been a
citizen of this town for many years and
did much towards building up its busi
ness interest. He enjoyed the confi
dence and esteem of all his fellow citi
zens. Messrs. Carr, Taylor and Ham
were among the oldest people of this
county, and were among the good and
quiet men of our county. Mrs. Rouse
was a middle age lady, and was the
consort of Mr. Abner Rouse. She had
been confined for a long time with a

but not until it had destroyed several
thousand dollars worth of horse flesh
for the citizens of this county. Ex-
Shoriff Luby Harper showed us a plum
the other day that weighed two and a
half ounces. It is known among nur
serymen as the Kelsey Japan, and is a
luscious fruit. Snow Hill is noted
for two things, but not on an extensive
scale, only during court weeks, and that
is horse trading and eating roasted pig.
We saw at court persons all the way
from Nash county for the purpose of
horse trading, and we have heard it
said that people came from Raleigh to
eat the Greene county roasted bog.
Wilmington Star: The Franklin Times
is authority for the statement that Rev.
Bylus Cade, the inventor of the process
of telegraphing from railroad trains in
motion, has disposed of the invention
to a Northern syndicate, the considera
tion being 50,000 in cash and a royalty
of $2 25 a mile per year on each mile of
road upon which his system of tele
graphing is used. These are the terms
of sale, provided the invention work as
well on the line now under construc
tion on a road between Washington
and Baltimore, under Mr. Cade's super
vision, as it did in previous experiments
at Raleigh, of which the inventor and
his friends have no doubt. Should it
prove what it is represented to be it will
rank as one of the great inventions of
the age, and there will be "millions in

Wilmingtcn Messenger: We learnihat
the South Atlantic and North Western
Railroad Company (projected ) of South
port, has purchased the fine hotel
property, pavillion and lot belonging to
Dr. W. G. Curtis on the water front at
Southport. It is understood that the
purchase has been made for use as a
depot and general office for the railroad
company. The price paid was $25, 000.
Dr. Curtis in tarn has bought the
Bryant Morse lot, next to tae old garri
son, for the consideration of S3, 000.
This purchase on the part of the rail
road company, together with the fact
that they have also purchased thirty
five hundred feet of water front, be
gins to look as if Southport is to have a
railroad. The statement is made that a
corps of ten engineers will be put to
work within a fortnight, making the
necessary survey for this line.
dent occurred in Duplin
Saturday afternoon, which resulted in
the death of Mr. David Williamson who
lived near Bryant's Store, fire miles
east of Kenansville. He, in company
with Mr. Lson Pearsall, one of his
neighbors, went out to "stand" for a
deer. They went aoroes Goeben in a
canoe to a small island, and. after wait
ing awhile for the dear, they started to
go baok across the creek. Mr. Pearsall
entered the canoe and Mr. Williamson,
who had their two guns, in attempting
to get in the boat, struck one of the
guns against the boat in some way,
which caused both barrels to be dis
charged. The entire loads entered the
forehead just above the eyes killing
him instantly. Mr. Pearsall says be
doesn't know exactly how it was done
as his face was turned in another direc
tion at that moment. Mr. Williamson
was twenty-eight years old. He leaves
a wife and three children.

THE beBt medical writers claim that
the successful remedy for nasal catarrh
must be non-irritating, easy of applica
tion, and one that will reach all the re
mote sores and ulcerated surfaces. The
history of the efforts to trsat catarrh
during the past obliges us to admit that
only one remedy has met these condi
tions and that is Ely's Cream Balm.
This pleasant remedy has mastered
catarrh as nothing else has ever done,
and both physicians and patients freely
concede this f aot. The most d stressing
symptoms yield to it.
