The Secretary of State recently

expectation of doing business with
them. Assistant Secretary Tiche-
nor has informed Mr. Martinez that
the dutiable character of any par
ticular article is always determined
in the first place by the Collector of
Customs at the port where it ar
rives, after due inspection of the
importation. He said further that
while the dutiable character of in
sects does not appear to have been
considered by tbe Department, the
provision in the Tariff act prescrib
ing a duty of 20 per cent, ad valorem
on live animals has at various times
been held to be applicoble to bees,

We are no apologist of rowdyism.
It is despicable. Bat chivalry is
admirable. It gains women's smile
and man's applause.

not confined to this Southland.

Certain Northern papers are
pleased to nse the term "Southern
Chivalry" derisively, as if the hap
pening of a qunrrel in New York or
in the arctic zone, between scions
of Southern blood, could take from
this fair land its God-vouched heri
tage of princely graces and manly
While chivalry is characteristic
of the South, rowdyism is confined
to no locality. The trail of the
serpent is seen alike in brake an
fen, and among fragrant shrubs
and blooming flowers.
Tbe New York papers are now
chuckling over "an affair" which
had its origin in the "Southern
Club." One of them sajs: "A
couple of Southern gentlemen, one
from long Virginia and the other
from ancient Kentucky descent,
quarrelled in the Southern Club
over a trivial matter the other
afternoon. They had the decency
to get out of the cluo nouse im
mediately on passing the lie, but
they were imbecile enough to fight
on a public street in New York city
as soon as they reached it." And
this "affair" is heralded abroad as
a disgraceful thing, illustrative of
Southern chivalry !
Perhaps these men are chivalric
gentlemen, otherwise they might
have fought in the club room, or
like ill-bred curs, have pocketed in
sults tbey dared not resent. But
this ao it may be, there are a thou
sand instances of brutal rowdyism
in New York to ona like that which
now gives notoriety to the Southern
Club; and this is paraded because
the parties are men of Southern
Tbe hideous crime pepetrated at
Barnwell is declared to be the off

EXIT TUE SURPLUS DUTY OF THE
Immediately after the inaugura
tion of the present Administration
the Journal prophesied tbe Bpeedy
elimination of the surplus from the
perplexing problems of the day.
Very soon after the meeting of the
fifty-first Congress it become evi
dent that tbe advocates ot protec
tion would see to it that the de
mand fer a bigh tariff should not
be embarrassed by the- presence
of an unusual surplus in the treas
ury, and now comes the Senate
Committee on Naval Affairs, with
recommendations which, if carried
oat, will make the national treasury
as empty as a beggar's purse.
They approve, in general terms,
the bill introduced by Mr. Hale,
authorizing tbe President to have
constructed eight battle ships of
from 7,500 to 10,000 tons each ; two
armored coast defense vessels;
three gunboats of Troin 800 to
1,200 tons each, and five first class
special further says :
"The Policy Board, in their re
port to the Senate, will recommend
tbe construction of 102 vessels oi
different types aad sizes. These
will be built, according to the plan
of the Board, ia fourteen years,
and will cost, together with their
maintenance during the lourteen
years, 2u,uiH),uuu. xnev say tne
maintenance of a neet of vessels,
such as they propose, would be only
one quarter that of keeping up the
same number of old style vessels.
a a a
"One of these vessels is to be
of 7,600 tons and her design pre
sents some remarkable features,
whiob may be more clearly under
stood from the statement of the
results they are expected to give ;
namely, a speed of between twenty-one
and twenty-three knots an
hour ; ability to cruise 16,000 miles
on one coal supply; guns equal to
anything afloat and a battery so
arranged as to enable fire of the
entire armament to be concentrated
upon any point."
All this is magnificent ! It fore
tells America's supremacy on the
Beas, and the triumph of her flag in
every clime. But it marks a furth
er departure from the principles on
which the Government was founded
and a continuation of the burdens I i0Dg an(i wasting illness. In many

In selecting your husband you
should not be guided by the silvery

the liuest porcelain is tbe best; but
if you have nothing but an earthen

mended, with the required number
of buttons and strings nicely sewed

Every woman in America ought
to read the article "Women of

azine for February, to know how
happy her lot really is. The for
cible contrast between our progres
sive civilization and that of the far
East has seldom been so strikingly
presented to our notice as in this
readable article, illustrated in part
by drawings made by a native
Siamese artist, which compare
curiously enough with the fine ex
amples of our modern illustrative
art in this same number. The other
beautiful illustrations (nearly two
hundred) include an exquisite full
pge gravure on heavy plate paper,
entitled "How Long!", portraits ol
the venerable Dom Pedro, deposed
emperor of. Brazil, and his family,
and as if these were not sufficient
attractions for any publication, the
past is made to yield us its treas

mamma Was Young" is portrayed
for us in charming pictures and
descriptions. From grandmamma

Editor Journal. Please allow me a
small space is your most interesting
paper, to say to my friends, and farm
ers in general, that they need not leave
Old North Carolina, for there is plenty
of good land here. I left New Berne
in the year 1886 from the service of Mr.
J. A. Meadowa and went to Morgan's
Swamp, Dr. F. Duffy's place, and in
the above year my wife and I, with
scarcely a pound of meat or a bushel of
corn to start on, with hoe and ax in
hand, went to work moving logs and
diging up the ground, and we made in
1886 seventy-five barrels of oom besides
sweet potatoes and other things. In
1887 the Doctor let me have a male and
I worked on halves, and made 100 bar
rels of corn, 160 dollars worth of cotton,
plenty of sweet potatoes, 600 pounds of
neat and chickens by the. dozen. In
188S I bought me a mule for 125 dollars
and paid for him, and made 80 barrels
of corn, 7000 pounds of cotton, 800
pounds of meat besides other supplies.
In 1889 I made 105 barrels of corn, 140
dollars worth of cotton. 70 bushels of
sweet potatoes, 1000 pounds of meat,
with other things. t
Allow me to say that these results
were not obtained by idleness; and any
one doubting tbe above statements may
ask any reliable man of township No. 2.

The snow has crusted, and, with the
freezing of the water, cattle, sheep and
horses are perishing all over the range.
An owner yesterday received word j

Horses haye worn their hoofs to t ie

ed snow. Cattle and sheep are help
less; game has been driven from tbe

WALKER BLAINE DEAD,
Washington. D. 0.. Jan. 16. Walker
Blaine, eldest son of the Seoretarv of
State, died last night at 8:20 o clock at
his father's residence, on Lafayette
Square, after a brief illness of pneu
monia, without even premonition to
those who had watched at hie bedside.
He can be recorded as a vietim of the
prevailing epidemic, the la grippe, for,
although the physician says that pneu
monia was tha direct cause of death,
tbe one follows upon the other to such
fatal ends in so many cases that they
may be accounted together parts of one
disease. Walker Blaine was thirty-five
years of age and unmarried. He was
born in Augusta, Me., May 8, 1855, and
graduated at Tale College and Colum
bia law school.

THE LA GRIPPE.
Chicago. Jan. 16, Reports received
at tbe Health Office yesterday were not
of an enoouraging nature, 11 of 87
death certificates baying the words
"Influenza" on the line after the cause
of death. The number of victims of
"grip" was the same as that reported
Tuesday, but the increase of deaths
from other diseases was something
alarming it being larger by 178 than
on the previous day.
New York, Jan. 16. Health officers
were right when they announced their
belief a week ago yesterday, that the
epidemio of influenza -had reached its
height. On that day the mortality in
this city reached 250. Today,, after fall

HE WALKED HOME.
One Negro who Couldn't Be Made to
Stay in Arkansas.
Yesterday afternoon a negro, foot sore
and limping from lameness, arrived in
Charlotte by the Air Line Road, having
walked every foot of the way from At
lanta. He was making his way back
to his old home at Wilson, N. C. He
gave his name as George Newton, and
said that he left this State nine months
ago for Arkansas. A group of gravel
train hands were interviewing him
when a News reporter came up. George
was telling tbem a tale of woe. One
third of the negroes who went out
tbere with him, he said, are dead. The
great trouble is to get drinkiDg water.
He stood it as long as he could, and
then, failing to make money enough to
get him passage home, he boldly struck
out on foot. He left Arkansas on tbe
30th of last November. He got several
lifts on freight trains between there and
Atlanta, but he had walked the entire
distance from Atlanta to Charlotte.
'It Is easy enough to get out there," be
said, "but getting back home is a dif
ferent matter. You oan't get any emi
grant agents to pay your fare back this
way, but you have to piy regular first
olass rates. Hundreds of negroes would
come back today, if they could raise
the money." George says there is
great dissatisfaction among the ne
groes who have emigrated weBt, but
they are there and cannot help them
selves. The railroad hands here gave
George, a good supper and sent him on
his way refreshed. Charlotte News.
