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 inevitable. 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. TRAILS AND BTJILDINQS BURNED. 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. Capt. Kitchin Not at Host The Weldon correspondent of the Richmond Dispatch says: "Captain W. H. Kitchin was hero Monday 1m route to Louis burg to take part in a Third par ty meeting. Whon asked what he would do should the Third party put up a candidate for Congress in this district who . favored govern ment ownership of railroads, 8ub-Treasury and other wild Populistic fdas, ho said ho would see him in the infernal regions before he would vote for him The truth of the matter is Captain Kitchin is as good a Democrat to day as he ever was, but he is trying to delude him solf with the idea that ho is a Popueist.

ON KIT1LF0R1 BATTLE-GROUND Vice-President Stevenson Celebrates the Day, Speaks, aud Shakes Hands. Greensboro', N. C, July 4. (Special-) Vice-President Stev enson, his two daughters, and his niece, Miss Scott, arrived at 7 o'clock this morning, and were met at the depot by a committee of our citizons mvl escorted to the Ben bow !lu,d. At 0:30 the party nvus t;iki-n out to Guilford battle gronr.H in carriages. At 11 o'HoH- iho ceromonies of the du were formally opened. Mayor Boyd then introduced Professor Edwin A. Alderman, of Chapel Hill, as orator of the day, Professor Alderman's sub ject was, "The Life of William Hooper." This speech w;is full of valuable historical facts, and was interspersed with beautiful flashes of eloquence. Dr. Charles Mclver, of the Normal and Industrial College, then read an exquisite poem, written by Mrs. H C. Morton of this citv, entitled. "The Sword of Stuart." At the close Mr. Koyd in fitting terms' introduced Vice President Stevenson, who made an exceed ingly sensible and happy speech, and at times ho was overwhelm ed with appause. Ho said that as a decendant of North Carolina, he had gladly accepted ihe invitation to come here to-day. "The history and 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 accomplish." At the close of his speech Mr. Stevenson recieved a perfect ovation. Speeches were made by Judge Simonton, of South Carolina; Mr. Wilkowskie, of Charlotte; Chief Justice Shep pard and Dr. K. P.

This is the tiny for the display of sopoh moric spreail-eoulu punegysics on the 'greatest country in the world'" so call ed principally for political effect, but there )9 no organized demonstration here. A good ni.in y people liotn this place went up to Burlington this morning to ..fond the race., where they can have other cxi-iiM.' for venting their pent up enthusiasm than bellowing for a country and an administration that owns such a condition of things to exit. The factories, banks, postoffiee and many other business places are closed, among them being some half dozen saloons the county commissioners refused to renew the license of in consequence of their having allowed minors to imbibe Ix'hiiMl their screens. Here in this city of tuliacco. cotton and Other factories, business appears to le good and the people cheerful. In addition to the hands, largely white, employed in the smaller industries the force of the Durham BullSmoking To bacco company, and the Duke branch of the American Tobacco company, or more properlv. the "'Tobacco Trust,' compose a full regiment of officers and privates, Nine tenths of this army of wage work ers spend their weekly earnings in the city, and what currency is here, by no means an insignificant sum, has a fre and healthy circulation. The tobacc o v,irehou-e- were the only public business places not observing the "Great 4th,' the low prices obtained by tho fanner since the inauguration of that highland devil-fish known ns the tobacco trust, not permitting to take even one day from his business. The weed sold all the way to-day from S1.50 to $25.00 per huudred pounds about one half what same grades brought when 1 last attended a sale some eighteen months tiro. There is no fruit of any description in tins entire section, excent a tew grapes. Everything else was killed bythalate frost so destructive around "New Berne. The early gardens here are just begin ning to yield potatoes, cucumbers, snaps and corn, and they arc irfuch scarcer end higher in price than with you. On the 2d. the train was crowded with teachers and other people going to attend the opening of the Normal school at Chapel Hill. Yesterday equally as many were going to Greensboro to lie present at the Guilford Battle Ground Celebration. Chief Justice Shepherd and other distin guished men will deliver addresses there. HAPPEXIXUS OF THE DAY. The man who carries a Pullman pass in his pocket always kicks the hardest and talks the loudest against the strike. The Panama Canal rumors are always on time when the Nicaragua Canal needs a little boosting in Congress. Sen at i r Blanchard is doing a lot of kicking for a man who has, as a member of the House, already voted for free sugar. Herr Dowc wants 150,000 pounds for Ihe secret ol his bullet proof cloth. For filty years no smoker has graduat ed from Harvard College with the houora of his class. Capt. J. B. Eaves, chairman of the Re publican State executive committee, has called the State convention to meet in Raleigh, August 30. Grasshoppers have s(opjed a train in New Mexico. Perhaps their grievance is that New Mexico grass doesn't come high enough. II the government ownes the railroads there would be no strikes. A strike against Uncle Sam was never heard of. The public agrees with speaker Crisp in thinking Congress entitled to an ad journment, and doesn't care how soon it takes it; hut there is a difference of opin ion as to the congratulations which for. Crisp says it is also entitled to. Well! Well!! Well!!! so Sir George Pullman thinks the strikes demonstration of anarchy. How many American wage earners did Sir George ever know to be anarchists or to be in sympathy with an archy i .m Putting up electric fans may cool the members of the House while they remain in session, but fans will not be needed to cool some of these fellows when they get back to their constituents; their receptions will be cold enough. John F.Andrews, of Rome, N.Y., now in his ninety-first year, claims to be the oldest living ex-congressman. He re presented the Steuben district from 1837 to 1839. Tom Reed never wears a silk hat. He bought one nearly six years ago and braved public sentiment beneath it for nearly a fortnight, but he couldn't stand the pressure longer than that. At this early period Casimir Perier, the newly elected President of France, has had his life threatened by the anar chists Tho sooner Santo meets his de served fate, the better it will lie for public officials. Deal with such charac ters as the slayers ofCarnot and Carter Harrison promptly and the lest possible prevention will hive lieen adopted. From the Goldsb.no Argus we take the following: "The Third party convention that was to b: held at Princeton last Sat urday failed to materialize. W. B. Rjins, the 'chief cook and bottle washer" cried aloud, '"all who favor good govern ment, come forward," but no one came ltiiins liecoming disheartened at the out look, took down his ready-made stage and left, and that ended the convention." LOVE VERSUS WISDOM. 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 ear: 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 slopes. Where the flowers were fnir and sweet, And away where the mail was rough ind lone 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.

Morehead, July atli.' II. 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 hand-. 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. i Elegant Social Event.

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 communication: "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." SOUTHERN COTTON MILLi. 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.

The steamer Howard celebrated the Fourth by bringing down one hundred and lift y b iles of cotton to the city from I'ollocksville. It belonged to Mr. E. L. Houghton ,,i' Polbxik.-A die and he was tie- grower of all of it. That the Atlantic ifc North Carolina iiii!roid less than a hundred miles long and out of the direct line of travel should have been the only railroad in the State paid any returns to its stockholders, is one of the strong indications of tho thrift of ibis region which it traverses. Mr. M. Swindell, of Bayboro was in die i ity this week and reports that while there has been too much rain.be does not consider that there has U-u any serious damage done. He further says that corn is especially good. Two barges the Edward mid Everett E. Dale are now' lying at the W.N. & X., wharf loading with lur.iber for New York The lumber is brought to the city l y ears Ironi the Parmaiee fc Eccleson Lumber company, of Jacksonville. It is the first to leave via New Berne from the mills, The barges will take between three and lour hundred thousand feet. 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 on the Faurth of July than were ever known here life fore that early. Good ones could be fouud in all parts of the city. One dealer Mr. C. L. Spencer had 840. Being more plentiful they are also cheap er than usual for so eitr'y in the season. Farmers say the dry weather has been Very fav.-rable lo the watermelon crop, hence the e.irliness and abundance. Prof. Jos. Kinsey, r.f Kinsey Seminary, passed through Thursday c-n route to hi home, lie has been down in Pamlico in the interest o( his school and also de livered a mas mic address while there. He feels iu good spirits over the results of the trip. Ue doubles the number of pupils for the seminary that he had last year.

The latter club, it will be remembered we e Ihe winners in the match game of the previous day to decide which was the best dub. Yesterday afternoon the Mutuals were to have played the New Berne team to decide which was second best, but they declined to meet them and the position of second best was according ly given to the New Berne trim. A Steamer to t'ly Between Morehead and Beaufort. The Baltimore Sun gives the following: "Ciipt. J. C. Lake's auxiliary steam yacht Lake's Cruiser will leave to-day for Beaufort, N. C. She has been char 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 transportation at any time and in any Kind of weather between places situated a M icliead and Beaufort are. the one a iii'.n.nus of the railroad and the other Cer ited from it only about a couple of mile- by water. F. in i ih of July at Bayboro. I'ln- Fourth ol July was -i pretty bi day in B.iybom. The Henry Wyatt Ciiinp of Confederate Veterans held their am. nil leu-ion there and the Peo ple's Party held their county convention there at the same time. The latter were in the court house, the former at the gen eral speaking place, where large gather ings re expected. (Jen. Battle made the address before the veterans. He started off by briefly alluding to the days ot the Revolutionary war and the achievements of the liberty 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.
