IT is evident that the influenza

The reason Republicans tried so'
bard to defeat Mr. Brice's election
to ths United States Senate is be
cause he is bonest, able, and one of

Democratic leader and disaffection
in their own ranks there will be
trouble in tbe Republican house

''It has come to be well known
that Republican politicians are op
posed to a World's Fair in Sew
York in 1892 because they fear tbe
influence of a concourse of the ex

cratic metroplis." We sre not so
embarrassed. Every body is in
favor of the New Berne Fair, and
if New Yorkers can't have a Fair
of their own they can come down

The census of 1890 will show a

SOME Republican newspapers are
calling upon the United States
Senate to investigate the election
of Mr. Calvin S. Brice. They pre
tend to believe that Mr. Brice
bribed some members to vote for
him. If tbe Senate wishes to in

sift matters to the bottom. It will
very likely find that Mr. Brice con
ducted a clean campaign, and that
some of his accusers are controlled
by malice, while others presume,

FARMERS AND THE FAIR.
The farmers of this and neighbor
ing communities are not so pros
perous now as they were in tbe
past, but there is abundant
room for gratitude, as well as en
couragement for the future.
The fertility ot our soil is not so
impaired that industry cannot re
store it, nor is the spirit of our
countrymen so broken that it can
not rise superior to misfortune.
The approaching Fair will give
the farmers of East Carolina a
splendid opportunity for advancing
their high and honorable calling,
and wetrnst that they will make the
most of it, not only for their own,
but also tor the country's good.
A premium is offered for the best
county exhibit. This ought to,
and doubtless will, bring in a large
amount of farm products, com
prising specimens from every sec
tion of East Carolina. It is grati
fying to know that several Conn
ies have organized with tbe in
tention of winning tbe prize, and
it is certain that others will do so.
True there is comparatively little
value in the prize itself, but the
reputation oi being the best conn
ty in East Carolina will be of in
estimable value to the farmers in
that county and will have a ten
dency to bring to it enterprising
settlers, from abroad, of large
capital, high sojeial character and

It has ben 6tated that there
will be no World's Fair on this
continent in 1892 because there is
not time enough to prepare for it.
The supposition that the time is
too short wa founded on the idea
tbac the contention of rival cities
would indefinitely postpone Con
Mr. Depew. who is the leading
advocate for the city of New York
as the proper place for the Fair,
says that there is time enough for
New York to get ready. There is
no reason to suppose that Washing
ton would require a longer period
ot preparation than New York. In
deed there are many reasons why
the work could be done quicker at
Washington than in New York.
We trust that there will be no
abandonment of the Quadri-Cen-tennial,
and we reaffirm our de
cided preference for Washington
City as the place for holding it.
The Fair is, in an important sense,
a demonstratian ot tbe three
America's republics, and should be
held at the Capital and nnder the
auspices of America's greatest re
public. World's Fairs at great commer
cial centers are becoming regular
and frequent institutions, and New
York, St. Louis, and Chicago can
legitimately anticipate having their
commercial expositions in the near
future and many of them.
"Were this grand celebration
simply to be a World's Fair, and
nothing more, then one of the great
commercial cities should and would
have inaugurated U; but the de
monstration means something in
finitely beyond and above this in
its scope and ultimate effect. Its
chief and lofty purpose is unques
tionably to commemorate and em
phasize the onward and accelerated
march ofrepublicanisra everywhere,
and to bold aloft a helping hand
and a beacon light to encourage
the struggling millions of enslaved
humanity throughout the world."
This can be safely said that in
the future more will be accomp
lished for the southern blacks by
moral and educational influences
than could possibly be gained from
United States marshals or Federal
bayonets. Chicago Tribune.

Tbe New York Star of tbe 22d
instant says :
The fight began last night, when
Mr. Bland, challanging a ruling of
Speaker Reed's, demanded tellers,
and was refused his demand. It
was begun again immediately after
the reading of the journal and con
tinued all day. Mr. Carlisle was
in his place as leader of the Demo
cratic side, and in his best form.
The Republicans were without their
recognized leader. Whether Major
Mc&inley diners with the Speaker
or whether he had the "grip" was
not made known, bat throughout
the whole debate, which was ex
pected on both sides after the de
velopments at the adjournment of
the night before, Major McK'nley
was conspicuously absent. Speaker
Reed, contrary to all usage on such
occasions, undertook from the chair
to lend his party on the floor. It
must be said that he did it skill
fully and successfully, but an soch
a manner that it wili assuredly
come back to plague him before the
session is ended.
Mr. Carlisle was on deck and in
splendid form. He took charge of
the forces of the minority and led
them just up to the point desired,
and held them there while the vote
was cast. Not a man flinched.
Speaker Reed made a strong state
ment of the position taken by him
seit in tbe matter, virtually assum
ing autocratic powers in tbe ab
sence of any controlling rules
adopted by this Congress. Then
came in one of the most curious
features of the day. Pending a
rising vote on a motion of Mr. Can
non, of Illinois, to lay the pending
appeal against the ruling of the
Speakeron the table, and a demand
for the cali ot tbe yeas and nays
on that motion Mr. Mills with all
the prestige which naturally per
tained to the leader of the majority
in tbe last House, rose to a point
of order, Speaker Reed went on
"I make the point of order," Mr.
Mills shrieked, ''that we hae no
rules, and that there is no such
thing as a motion to lay on the
table known to general parliamen
Still Speaker Reed went on
"I demand a ruling on my point
of order," said Mr. Mills, now,
naturally, very ranch excited.
The Speaker's finger calmly rose
and fell an he continued to count
the votes. Tbeu, without noticing
Mr. Mills in any way, he said:
"In the opinion of the Speaker,
the yeas and nays are ordered, and
the Clerk will call the roll."
No such apparent indignity has
ever been inflicted upon a leader
of the House within memory. It is
stated to night that the official re
porters heard the Speaker overrule
Mr. Mills' point of order, and that
the official report will contain a
statement to that effect. No one
else on the floor or in the galleries
seems to have been equally fortu
nate. The vote when taken, of
course, sustained the Speaker by a
party majority, but, as already
said, this is only the opening skir
mish of the right. There will be no
let up until the majority is forced
into yielding some rights to the

to the News-Observer from Louisburg,
gives an aecount of a sensatianal mur
der in Franklin county, night before
last. Raneome Gill, a well-to do far
mer, living about three miles from
Franklinton, was a juror in oourt and
was going home from Louisburg in his
buggy late in the evening, when he was
mysteriously shot. He was found next
day six miles from Louisburg with a
bullet-hole through his head. His
horse was found unhitched and tied
about three hundred yards away. Gill
was found lying on his face with his
overcoat on and both hands in his
pockets. The ball had apparantly been
fired from a 82-calibre revolver. Rob
bery was evidently not the obiect of the
murder, as Gill had soma money on his
person wnen round. The affair is en

AN IMPORTANT CASE.
Involving Millions to North Carolina
A Question for the Supreme Court
Argument was begun in the Supreme
Court of the United States yesterday
in the case of the State of North Caro
lina and W. P. Roberts, auditor, appel
lants, vs. A. H. Temple. The cases
arises out of a suit brought by Temple
to compel the State to pay $9,900 worth
of special tax bonds issued under an act
passed iu 1869, and $5,500 interest
money. It involves the right of a citi
zen to sue his State and comee up from
the circuit of the United States tor the
Eastern distriot of North Carolina on a
certificate of division.
In order to float the bonds the State
provided for the levy of a speoial tax
to pay interest on them, and a state
ment to this effect Was printed on the
certificates. Subsequently a law waa
enacted repealing the act directing tbe
suit levy of a special tax, and the suit
is brought on tbe ground that this re
pealing act waa unconstitutional aa an
impairment of contract. It is contended
in behalf of Temple that the Federal
courts have jurisdiction to protect a
citizen of a State in the rights goafmn
teed him by the Federal Constitution
from the unconstitutional acta of his
The State plants firmly on the propo
sition that it cannot be sued without its
consent, which has not been given.
Ex-Solicitor General Phillips and Mr.
E. ,L. Andrews argued tbe oaae in be
half of Temple, and Mr. R. H. Battle
represented the State. Attorney General
Davidson, of North Carolina, will speak
for 'the State tomorrow.
There are several million dollars in
volved in the suit, which was to have
been argued at the last term, bnt was
postponed owing to Judge Matthews'
illness, a full bench being desired to
hear tbe case, as tbe court is pretty
nearly equally divided on the issue
raised. Washington Post.
Locomotive vs. Storms.
A correspondent of the Northwestern
Railroad advances some odd theories to
account for the frequency and severity of
storms in modern times. He gives the
figures to prove that there are now over
30,000 locomoties in actual use in tbe
United States, besides the hundreds of
thousands of stationary engines of all
kinds and sizes. From a reund 30,000 of
locomotives he estimates as much as
53,000,000,000 cubic yards of vapor each
week, over 700,000 cubic yards a day all
to be returned as rain "quite eDough,''
he says, "to produce a good rain storm
every twenty-four hours." He estimates
other engines of all kinds at 180,000,
probably a very low estimate, and con
cludes that these, with the locomotives,
send about 470,000,000,000 yards of
vapor into the air every seven days. "Is
it not enough, " he asks, "to give us
floods of terror?" Hundreds of gas wells
sending their poison into the atmospherel
millions of cesspools and sewers. Wou;d
it be any wonder if some blighting plague
would lay waste the land ?
Portrait of Edward Graham.
The following article, relative to a
former and distinguished citizen of
New Berne, is taken from the Raleigh
News and Observer:
"A portrait of Edward Graham, for
merly of New Berne, has been added to
the gallery of the Supreme Court room,
consisting of portraits of men of promi
nence who have practised before that
tribunal in times past.
Mr. Graham was graduated at Prince
ton in 1785, and read , law with John
Jay, first Chief Justice of the United
States. He waa contemporary with
Judge Wm. Gaston, John Stanly and
other great lights of the New Berne
Bar, though an older man than those
named. Ha represented the town of
New Berne then entitled to separate
representation from the county in the
Legislature of 1797.
Hon. Louis D. Henry, formerly of
this oity, was a nephew of Mr. Graham
and read law with his uncle. Hon.
John H. Bryan, late of Raleigh, and Dr.
Francis L. Hawks were also, we think,
law students with Mr. Graham. De
scendants of Mr. Graham grandchil
dren and great-grandchildren still live
in Raleigh Mrs. Samuel Ruffin, Mrs.
Edward Trapier, Miss Jennie Graham
Baker and others.
The portrait is a well exeouted oil
painting an old family piece and
represents a man at onoe of intellect,
benevolence and commanding presence.
It bears the following inscription:
"Edward Graham, of New Berne,
died 1833. Presented by his grandson,
Edward Graham Daves-"
The portrait was prepared for its
present position, and will be plaoed by

Mr. Graham's obituary was wrttten
by Judge Gaston and appears in the
New Berne Speotator of March 29th,
1838, from which we extract the follow
ing: "Mr. Graham's ability was so con
spicuous in detecting the frauds which
had been committed in our land office
that he was appointed by the legislature
one of a special commission raised to
pursue the investigation in the recess,
the labors of which appointment were
performed to the great advantage of the

rell, of Wilmington, Del., is tbe general
manager of the company, and he is as
sisted by Mr. Joseph H. Young, of Char

movement of negroes from this State
for the West was as follows: Nineteen
passenger coaches filled to the doors,
nine box cars filled with baggage, 1 ,400
negroes, ana all pulled by a twleve
wheeled consolidated engine. All this
in one day. The negroes were collected
from about Durham, and there is still a
herd there awaiting.
Raleigh Call: The exhilarating and

after ten o'clock. We stated in yes
terday's Call that the work done in get
ting up the census in this State should
be done by North Carolinians. We are
glad to know that Mr. Chas. D. Up
church, clerk of tbe court of Wake
coBnty, is also of our opinion. He re
fused yesterday to let the United States
census agents have accecs to the books,
on the ground that the work Bbould be
done by natives and not foreigners. We
are pleased to notice also that the au
thorities at Washington are also of our
opinion, which was shown by a tele
gram received yesterday, in reply to
Clerk Upchuroh'e refusal.

Oklahoma for Ike Negroes.
A St. Louis special says: Letters re
ceived by W. L. Eagleeon, business
manager of the Oklahoma Immigration
Society in Kansas, say that a large
number of negroes in North Carolina
are going in wagons this winter to the
new Territory. Mr. Eagleeon says
there are now about 22,000 negroes in
Oklahoma, and that by spring there will
be at least 50,000. He thinks they ought
to have that country, and says that
President Lincoln and the Sapublican
narty promised to give it to them. He
"We are determined to take it any
how, and we will make it one of tbe
grandest States in the Union . I favor
Col. Morgan's scheme to purchase the
Cherokee strip and other lands in the
Indian Territory, exclusively for negro
settlement. Give us the Blair bill, the
Indian Territory and Senator Butler's
$5,000,000, and we shall be content.
Oklahoma, in my judgment, is the land
of promise for the race and -migration
the panacea for every ill now affecting
the negroes of the South. "
