Overturned and Railway
Buildings Burned
Ohicago, July 5. Changes in
tbe railroad strikes situation are
rapid, and to-night certain dia
triota iu the city are in complete
ooutxdl of mob of desperate men.
It is now believed that before
the struggle is ended a conflict be.
twsen the ntrikera and troops is
i The first sign of the expected
battle came this afternoon, when a
railroad official, surrounded by a
bowling mob, drew bis revolvor
and fired, injuring one man sev
erely, probably fatally, and wound
ing another. Both victims were
striking switchmen, nud the those
on the engine bad a narrow escape
from being mobbed, but away was
made clear, ard the engine back
op toward tbe city.
The mob then set Are to several
trains of cars and burned several
railroad bnildinga in the vicinity.
Blood must Sow Ireely, many be
lieve, before the seeneA of violence
cease. Home or tbe city omcials
believe to-night than an attempt
will be made to barn tbe city if
some sort of an agreement is not
soon reached. There are over 100,
000 idle men in Chioago to-day,
and every one of them is in sym
pathy with the efforts of tbe Amer
ican Railway Union to induce Pall
man to settle the demands of bis
employes. They are even ready to
take a hand in any act of violence
started; and the wild scenes at the
stock' yards this afternoon,
daring which the regular
troops were powerless to
act and the complete victory of the
strikers at Thirty-ninth street at
4 o'clock over the United State
troops, shows that tbe condition .of
wfiaira is indeed critical, and that
tt will require thousands of soldiers
to preserve order.
The city authorities regard the
aitimttoa serious. A coiittrvt
with ha Ubited troops aod rioter",
he fraid, was probable, and the
citizen were wanted to keep to
their homes.
Along the Bock Island tracks
this evening there were crowds of
desperate men, and overturned
ears and wrecked trains showed
ho completely the mob was in
control. The same condition of
things exoisted on the Lake Shore
and other routes, and at no time
during the afternoon and evening
were the troops in the city, the
United-States marsballs, aid the
deputy sheriffs and police able to
preserve order.
The order for the troops to fire,
and fire to kill, it is expected, will
be given to .day The troops were
powerlesD. Unles large reinforce
ments are secured the cannot cope
with the mob.

Mayor Boyd then introduced
Professor Edwin A. Alderman,
of Chapel Hill, as orator of the

flashes of eloquence.
Dr. Charles Mclver, of the

traditions of the Old North
Stato are as dear tome as they
are to you," he said. "North
Carolina is renowned to-day the
word over from the fact that
she first declared her independ
ence in Mecklenburg.
My voico is raised to day in
behalf of those North Carolin
ians who fought and struggled
for constitutional liberty and
American it dependence. In this
struggle she played no mean
fart. To North Carolina be
ongs the imperishable credit
for the first attempt at freedom.
The heroism of North Carolina
soldiers at Eutaw, Kings Moun
tain, and Guilford played an
important part in the success of
the precious boon of liberty.
"North Carolina,' said the
speaker, "is just entering upon
a period of wonderfull prosper
ity. You have a magnificent
climate, splendid mineral
wealth, and, above all, you
have a State noted for its good
morals. Your schools, churches,
and asylums attest the gener
osity of your citizens.
Closing, the speaker said: I
congratulate you on what you
have accomplished in the way
of commemorating tho deods of
our forefathers, and 1 congratu
late you on what you are yet to
At the close of his speech Mr.
Stevenson recieved a perfect
ovation. Speeches were made
by Judge Simonton, of South

A beautiful butterfly came one day
(It was Cupid in disguise).
And he flew away from a maiden's grasp
As she reached for the lovely prize,
And a wise old owl. who sat quite near.
Whispered the-e words in the maiden's
Nay, lassie! Stay, las-it!
Let love go.
It's no use following.
It will only l.rillir Voll woe.
But she followed
'ver ihe grassy
Where the flowers were fnir and sweet,
And away where the mail was rough ind
And the lirieis hint her '& t.
While spite of sunshine ami spite ol rain
The owl still cl'auttd the old relraio:
Nay, lassie! Stay, lasicl
Iet love go.
It's no use following.
It will only bring you woe.
But then Cupid lit on a fiir white roso.
And the maiden caught him fist.
She cared not for the thorns which tore
her hand.
For love was hers at last,
While the owl sat with solemn look
And read these words from wisdom's
book :
Dark lassies, fair lassies
All made the same,
For love they'd leave a fortune
And gayly laugh at tame.

Third Par,)- Convention Speeches.
The following -pecial report of the
speeches made at the Third Party con
vention are furnished u- bv a gentleman 1
who was present on the oeea-ion.
W. H. Smith. Chairman of the County
Com., called the convention to order 1
and in a speech of thirty or forty minutes
attacked the Cleveland administration.
He said the administration was a combi
nation of ( leveliindism and Shcrmanism.
That Cleveland and his Wall street co
horts were working in the interest of
England to ruin this country. And if
the people did not rise up in their majesty
i and take tile Government out, of their
! hands it would soon be ruined. He then
proceedc I to appoint a committee on
credentials permanent organizations and
I!( solutions:
Mr. Chas. Sutton of Vanceboro moved
that while the committee were out that
Edward R Dudley colored lie toques cd
to address the convention.
The speaker said he did not know
where ho was. that he had voted for '.he
last flvu or six yean; (he Democratic
ticket. That now he was at sea.
lie believed in States rights ami went
so far as to declare that the Slides had a
right to secede from the general govern
ment. He denounced the present admin
istration said that they were so extrava
gant in their expenses that this Govern
ment would soon be a pauper Govern
ment. The Democratic party went into power
on account of the promises they made to
reform the abuses of the past administra
tion, thoy had been in power now tor
more than a year and had done nothing
towards fulfilling their promises.
He was in favor office coinage of silver
for two reasons, the first was it Would put
more money in circulation, aud he want
ed gold and silver placed upon equal foot
ing Said the thousands of artisans and la
boring people who are now out of work
were called tramps. He denied this and
stated they were looking for work, that
the capitalist had closed their works and
thrown them out ot employment, that if
things went on as they are now going all
the firms of the country would be in their
Said the w hole count r wanted and
needed free coinage of -:vi r except Wall
street and Mr. Clevt'aml be grand mcgul
of the Democratic party w:i opposed to
the financial policv of his party which
they promised the people lefore his
election. He was now one of the shy
kicks of Wall street. The history of the
present administration shows that they
have gone from bad to worse. Mr. Dud
ley spoke for sonic time and closed with a
eulogy upon the Statesmanship ot the
late Senator Z. B. Vance.

Letter received last night:
'Senators Sherman and Jarvis. one
representing the North, the ollc r the

carried off the honors of the day. He
was greeted -with rounds of applause
when he appeared and the cheers were
much louder and more sincere when he
took his sent. lie is making :i line im

"He is winning laurels as a presiding
officer of the Senate also. He gave Ins

Pamlico Third Party Convention
The Populists of Pamlico county held
a convention at Bayboro after the Con
federate soldiers organization meeting was
over, on the Fourth of July. A corres
pondent writes us that it was a very tame
affair, there were very few Populists in it
a good many Democrats went as lookers
on. We quote what follows, from the
"Nothing ol interest transpired. Chair
man Babbitt and J. B. Martin, were the
orators and their speech, s were largely
personal abuse of some democrat, whom
they seem to have a hatred for. It can
be assured that Pamlico will remain in
the Democratic columns, Chairman B ib
bills prediction not withstanding.
Tt seems to be an idea of destriers that
everybody is just like them. During the
war whenever a Confederate soldier de
scried and went to the Yankees be alway
reported that Lee's army were all deaett
inj and no doubt caused the Yankee gen
erals to make attacks, and g. t whipped
hen otherwise. they might not. t!al
bitt thinks that b.v iu-e he has deserted
the old ship, that e.e;bodv else has. the
fiict is that he has lelt the party and he
don't know who has conic to us since he
has been gone."
The Large Dividends they are Pay
ing in Spite of flic Depressed
Condition of Ihe Country.
The showing of earnings el many cot
ton mills of the Souch, as presented in
their aeeouuts of the last six months, is a
most satisfactory exhibit, not only to the
stockholders, but as a demonstiation that
the manufacture of cotton goods in the
South is an assured success. The show
ing of the earnings range from 4 to 8 per
cent, for the six months in dividends,
besides carrying something to surplus.
Commenting upon these results the
Daily Investigator, ol New York, re
marks: "These earnings have been made dur
ing the worst -UeprcsMon in Hie cotton
business the country has ever kiiow'n. and
during a time that, the cniton mills n j
New England have hardly been abh to :
get a new dollar for o- old one aulioii h
many of them lnve not pas-,.l ihe r .iii-i
dends, but paid Mem Iron their mi -plus."
The future of the Soulh is bright.
Good government, honest adminisl ration,
public and private economy, and renew

That the Atlantic ifc North Carolina

and out of the direct line of travel
should have been the only railroad in the

W litre ver we hear fiVmi the reports are
very encouraging as to the crop outlook,
in spite of the late start by reason of the
dry spell this spring. We take the fol
lowing from a Pamlico letter. It is a
fair sample of a number of reports: "The
past few days have brought heavy rains
but no damage to crops as yet; the pros-pi-cts
now seem to indicate good crops
this season, which we hope will I the
case. "
Watermelons were more plentiful here

teied to run passengers from Morehead
City to Beaufort for the Atlantic hotel.
Capt. I-ake will command the yacht."
We are glad to see the putting on of
this steamer. We hope it will result in
the running of ODe regularly between the
towns the year round. While the sail
bouts are tino for pleasure and well
enough at times for bu.-iness purposes,
there ought to be sure and comfortable

day in B.iybom. The Henry Wyatt

loving patriots of those days, end then
came on to the great war between the
States and dwelt particually upon the
battle ot Spottsvylvania, and the fceroic
deeds of the Confederates on that occasion
The address was historic and brilliant.
