DEBATING THU BtJLES.
Congress has been In session
since the first Monday in Decem
ber, and yet no rules for its govern
ment have been adopted. For two
and a half months the arbitrary
will of the Speaker was recognized
as tbe parliamentary law of the
House of Representatives. This
condition of affairs would have
continued indefinitely but for tbe
resolnte action of the Democrats
that has forced the Committee on
Rules to report to the House a code
for its government.
Two reports are now before Con
gress : one the majority report,
supported by the Republicans, the
other the report of the minority
advocated by the Democrate
Tbe adoption of tbe majority re
port will facilitate the transaction
of business by removing the checks
imposed upon legislation ; the
adoption of the minority report
will retain those safeguards which,
from the foundation of the govern
ment, have been regarded as the
surest defense of the public treas
ury and the greatest abstacle to
hasty, inconsiderate and hurtful
The contest over tbe now code
opened on Monday. The two par
ties euteied upon tbe debate in
this relation to each other: Tbe
minority is united and the majority
is divided. The masterly presenta
tion of tbe case signed by Cailisle
and Randall, as the minority ot
ihe committee on rules, commands
nniversal allegiance on tbe Demo
cratic side, while the majority ie
porr, embodying tbe decision of
the caucus to give pension cases
preferenee, is not even accepted by
the Republican members of the
committee on rules. That Repub
lican members will be lashed into
an acquiesence in the.decree of tbe
caucus is highly probable, but it
will be a sullen acquiesence that
carries with it none of the spirit of
vigorous, rosolute action.
The debate was opeBed on the
part of the majority by Mr. Cannon
who stated that "of tbe forty rules,
which governed the last House,
twenty-nine were reported without
any material change. The changes
were such as would enable tbe will
of the majority to be ascertained
and expressed with accuracy and
with the utmost expediency, -con
sistent with fair and due dehatn
Mr. Mills, of Texas, speaking for
the minority,said that"the proposed
code would reverse legislative
action and run back npon the track
upon which the government had
been running forward for a cen
tury. It was founded npon the
proposition that the minority had
no rights; that the majority was
all powerful ; that It spoke by in
spiration, and that its action was
impregnable. It was founded on
the prineiple that the King was
divinely appointed and that he
could do no wrong. That was not
the theory upon which the Fathers
had builded this great temple of
"Rules were intended not only to
facilitate business, but to protect
the minority, and they had always
done so since the foundation of the
government. Rales werejntended
to make this body halt, pause, de
liberate, and, in some instances,
to go back and touch the sober
second thought of the people. It
was npon the sober second thought
of the people that the government
rested. The people might become
mad; but that madness would dis
appear, and in their sober second
thought they would come back and
do what they ought to do. The
Republicans had said they desired
to consider an election case, and
that they had the manhood to carry
out their desire. They reminded
him of the bull which had tbe man
hood to get in front of an engine
running at sixty miles an bonr,
dispute its passage. The bull did
not stay there long; bnt a by
stander said that while he admired
the bull's manhood, he damned his
judgment. Laughter, The mi
nority had asked for rules, but for
rules which, while providing for the
proceedure of business, would pre
serve and protect the rights of the
How long this debate will con
tinue cannot be definitely deter
mined, but the Republicans will
attempt to force a vote at the
earliest moment and carry the
majority report through by the
force of numbers.
The duty of the Democrats ot
the House is plain. They must
insist npon justice to the minority,

Wonder if Benjamin Harrison

"The Mystic Valley Club of busi

His speech on 'The Southern Ques

ing by the fact that, to Rome ex

lately delivered here by the la

It -could not be otherwise than
that the speech of Clayton would be
the opposite of the speech of
Grady. One was a hellish picture,
the other a heavenly vision. It is
impossible for Clayton to have

Goldsboro Argue: Goldsboro has had
another fire of considerable importance
that might have been promptly extin
guished if sufficient water had been
available. The foundry building of tbe
Wayne Agricultural Works was de
stroyedllast night about 7 o'clock, and
although the two engines of the fire de
partment were early on the scene they
could do nothing for lack of water. Tbe
fire is supposed to have originated in
the wooden roofing, as that is where it
was first discovered, probably by sparks
from the furnace. The building was
insured for SI. 000, but it is thought that
tbe loss will exceed that sum by several
hundred dollars. The main fcuilding
was unharmed, and tbe foundry will
be rebuilt at once.

small pink-wrapped box four inches
long, two inches wide and a little more
than an inch thick. On being opened
the box was found to contain one of
the Union Metalio Cartridge Co.'s
"star" cartridges, with the following
inscription in black ink, "Election pills
for old Cuff Jor for Ingalls, from Jack
son, Mies. Como to see us, Old Nut
galls." Senator Ingalls was not at all
alarmed at the contents of his mail, but
both he and his secretary thought it
prudent to lay the cartridge carefully
away, as there was a possibility that it
might be more destructive than an or
dinary oartridge. There was a slight
fear that tbe powder and shot might
have been extracted from the shell and
replaced with some powerful explosive.
The Senator, however, was of opinion
that it was a plain buckshot cartridge,
and a reporter subsequently ascertained
this to be the fact by prizing open the
shell and revealing nine large buck
shots and a charge of powder. Even
this, it was thought was not a particu
larly pleasant present, and the joke
may turn out to be a serious one for tbe
perpetrator, as it is a violation of tbe
postal Jaws to send explosives through
Four Children Drowned in Crossing a
Corinfh, Miss , February 11. A dis
tressing acoident was reported yester
day from Yellow Creek, ib Tishomingo
county, near Burnsville. Last Friday,
during a heavy rain, Jim Seals and his
family, emigrants from Alabama, at
tempted to oross Yellow Creek in a
wagon. The stream was swollen out of
its banks and the wagon went down tbe
current and capsized, drowning four
children aged from two to tea years.
The team was also drowned and every
thing lost, the parents alone surviving.
The children were buried Sunday at a
neighboring graveyard. The parents
are left penniless and are almost pros
trated with grief.
INHERITED BLOOD POISON.
How many people there are whose
distress from sores, aches, pains and
eruptive tendencies are due to inherited
blood poison. Bad blood passes from
parent to child, and it therefore is the
duty of husband and wife to keep their
blood pure. This is easily accomplished
by a timely use of B. B. B. (Botanic
Blood Balm). Send to Blood Balm Co.,

James Hill, Atlanta, Ga., writes:
"My two sons were afflicted with blood
poison, which doctors said was heredi
tary. They both broke out in sores and
eruptions which B. B. B. promptly con
trolled and finally cured completely."
Mrs. S- M. Williams, Sandy, Texas,
writes: "My three poor afflicted chil
dren, wbo inherited blood poison, have
improved rapidly after a use of B. B. B.
It is a Godsend."
J. R. .Wilson, Glen Alpine Station.
N. C, Feb. 13, writes: "Bone and blool
poison forced me to have my leg ampu
tated, and on tbe stump there came a
large ulcer, which grew worse every
day and doctors gave me up to die. I
only weighed 120 pounds when I began
to take B. B. B.. and 12 bottles increased
my weight to 180 pounds and made me
sound and well. I never knew what
good health was before."

Contributory causes in great variety
natural, political, economic, and special
are tending steadily and constantly
to briog about this result; and to these
are added the untiring energy and com
mercial expedients of that very live
Yankee element which already consti
tutee so large a proportion of her shore
population, and with which the native
character so readily assimilates. As
long as sixteen years ago tbe old Fair
haven oystermen, beaded by George N.
Ives, began to migrate from Connecticut
to tbe sounds and rivers of North Caro
lina, and now there are at Morehead,
New Berne. Pollard, and other places,
large colonies of Nutmeg Graters (now
greater than ever), with largo capital
invested in oyster canneries and fiah
packing establishments with extensive
connections in New York, Boston, and
all the eastern markets; and new ones
are being constantly added. But tbe
influx of nortbern enterprise is not all
from Connecticut. There are besides
Yankees a good many wide-awake and
sagacious Virginians who have already
pulled out from the depleted and dis
puted Chesapeake, and are adding their
valuable knowledge and experience to
the common fund a combination of
qualities and energies which are surely
working out for North Carolina a most
enviable financial position soon to com
mand fulsome recognition.
Virginia may continue to plant oys
ters for a generation to come, but un
less the interests of her oyster planters
are better protected than they have
been, and are, the industry must wane
and die out. Decadence is inevitable
During the World 's Cotton Exposition
at New Orleans, in 1834-5. North Caro
lina had the best exhibit of fish and fish--ing
implements of all tbe States repre
sented. Not only her commercial fishes
were shown, but all indigenous fishes.
ooaat wise and inland. Mounted speci
mens were represented, so exquisitely
prepared by tne taxidermist that they
attracted wide comment. By this ex
hibit the fishing resources and capabil
ities of North Carolina were illustrated,
and their coming importance fore
shadowed . Tnere were other seaboard
States which made fair presentation of
tieir fishery industries at New Orleans,
but none however followed up the ad
vantage which it gave them, excepting
North Carolina. That wide-awake
State has wasted no time nor opportu
nity. Tbe very next year after New
Orleans, the first annual exhibition of
tbe "East Carolina Fish, Ojster. Game,
and Industrial Association," was insti
tuted at New Berne, and now in this
month of February, 1800, it holds its
third, extending from the 24th of this
month to March 1.
It will be noticed that the speoific
title which designates the objects and
purpose of this Association gives the fish
and oyster industrtes precedence of all
others. The timber interests of the
State, its cotton, tobacco, naval stores,
minerals, and the rest, are given seoond
place, thereby indicating what the peo
ple believe to be their "best hold."
Without doubt the fisheries of the State
only just now beginning to be devel
oped are paramount to all others.
Last year we visited tbe New Berne
Fair in person; we sailed through the
broad sounds and visited tbe canneries
and fish houses along shore, and we
thus ubtained that insight into their
growing development which makes us
enthusiastic, and without which we
oould not feel confident.
It would be well worth tbe while of
any reader of the Angler to attend this
Fair, going to Norfolk, Vs., by the Obi
Dominion line of steamers from New
York, and thence to New Berne through
the canals and sounds. Tbe city itself
is beautiful and the Fair grounds
modern, with brick buildings and
electrio lights. The new building just
completed for the exolusive display of
oysters, fish and game is admirable.
Aquaria and the departments of conch
ology will be Bpecial features. Pre
miums of five dollars are offered for
each of the twelve varieties of native
oysters named, and twenty4ive dollars
for the best varied collection. A prize
of fifty dollars is offered for the best
collection of fish, and twenty-five dol
lars for tbe second best. Then there
are prizes for tbe best displays of
scallops and crabs, a prize of five dol
lars for the largest sturgeon, and ten
dollars each for the best shark and less
than five foet long and tbe beet live
porpoise and the biggest live alligator
over five feet. This exibit will cer
tainly be unique enough. But besides
this tbe game exhibit in Class A
will be remarkable, for it includes bear,
wolves, deer, beaver, otter, mink, wild
cat, fox. squirrel, rabbits, musk rat,
panther cat, coon, opossom, flying
squirrel and other wild animals, and
three hundred varieties of game and
wild fowls, including wild turkeyB.
geese, ducks, plover, curlew, rail,
beach robin, oyster birds, doves, snipe,
woodcock and quail. Liberal premiums
are offered for best pairs of all varieties
of upland game, and also for best pairs
of twenty-two named varieties of na
tive ducks, and for swans, loons, wild
turkeys, and fifteen varieties of fur
bearing animals. It is ex-pected that
ex-President Cleveland will attend.
