Tb-o 'eandfdatea, so far as we know, are Grady, Bale, Shaw, Mo- ver and Havens: bat the field is open to all who desire to enter it. Mr. Grady is the present incnm bant. He has made an iudastrions member of Congress and a faithful representative of his people. His coarse has been conservative, his speeches good if not brilliant, and hUvotes on the right side of all im portant issaea. If nominated, the JOURNAL will give Mr. Grady a cor dial support. Mr. Hale is a gentleman of var ied accomplishments and national reputation. Daring the war he was a gallant soldier, and has since represented his country aboard with signal ability. As editor of the Favetteville Observer he has been an able defender of pare and unadulterated Democracy. He was a devoted friend of Zebnlon B. Vance,and on every appriate oc casion held him up to tbe admira tion of his countrymen. Mr. Shaw is a yoang lawyer of decided ability, a sound Democrat and a fearless advocate oi the prin ciples of his psrty. As the Cleve land (lector in this district, in the last Presidential campaign, he made a gnlra-nt fight and was vic tor of tbe field. Mr. Mclver bears an honored namesnd wear it worthily. He is as gentle as a lamb, but as brave as a lion. Tho' a young man he has filled high official positions with credit to himself and honor to the state. His abilities are of a high order, and he is "the soul of chivalry."' Ot Mr. Havens it is not neces sary to speak.

Prom the News-i ihfervcr-Chroniele we take the following statement signed by the ladies: "In reply to letters leing received by the President, the ladies deem it neces sary to suv that not enough money has been raised by about eight thousand dol- bus for tlie Confederate Monument, and 1 as no idea of erecting a monument by the ;'-ople of the State at large in her Capitol j-quare luM ever necn tnougnt 01 until the ladies organized tlie North Carolina Mon umental Association, it is to be hoped they will not be thwarted in their efforts by so many other projects, but all unite to and in the Confederate Monument until completed, when they will willingly do tbeir part to perpetuate the deeds ot in dividual great men. I he Confederate Monument will be erected in memory of every Confederate soldier from Xorth Carolina who laid down his life iu that just cause, private as well as officer. Several thousand dollars could have been raised in a short while, and was offered if names of private parties were allowed inscribed on tlie monument, but as so many of the bravest men of tbe Confederal- have never leen able to raise one Iiud tired dollars since their homes and fortunes were takjn from them, we did not deem tt expedient, but believe that -Justice should le done.' " The Ladies. Every citizen should take pride in con tributing to this Confederate monument which is to stand in the capitol square at Raleigh, and the work should not be al lowed to I'm lie r for lack of funds. As manv people as there are who feel an interest iu this monument it will take but a very small sumfrom each to complete the amount needed. The only trouble is to get them to tliink and send in the little sum which we know they are perfectly willing to give. If the additional money does not now in readily, a little more canvassing in the several cities may be resorted to, and this we are confident will speedily result in the securing of all that is needed. Lot every one who has the work at heart who has not contributed as yet do so tint the mouumfent may at as early a day as possible grace the spot selected for it. The Strike Situation, The strike troubles appear to be prac tically at an end, but the strikers talk hopefully yet. They say that by Satur day they expect to have a million men out in accord with the provisions of the order of a general strike. They say the men do not go out until they have their meetings of th. ir local organizations and take action. In Chicago the blockade is raised, trains are running on all roads, and it is thought it will take but little time to get the rail road business of the city bark to its regu lar routine. Oue of the last features of tlie strike was the wrecking of a train bound for San Francisco with regular troops on the engine and one passenger car. This was accomplished by injuring the track at a trestle. The engine and four cars went down. Four lives were lost and another man is likely to die. The disaster occurred only a short dis tance trom Chicago. Tlie country was scoured by cavalry but no trace was found ot the perpetrators of the dastardly deed.

The cost to the United States of putting down the railroad strike in the est is estimated by Government officials at fully $1,000,000, It may loot up more. The estimates include telegraph bills, deputy marshals' pay and transportation and maintenance of United States troops. The estimates of marshals pay at Chi cago alone are $150,000. and Congress in a few days will be asked to appropriate this, as it is urgent.

One of the valuable points established by these te.-ts is the explosion of the idea once held by many that a ' bled" pine tree was not lit for lumber, whereas such lumlier has been fully proven to be equal to, if not superior to that from trees that have not been worked for turpentine, and this opens the door for large profits to the owners of pine forests. The trees can now be worked and the lumber sold on a par with that from the unworked trees. Virginia Dare Hotel Cosed The Virginia Dare Hotel, Beaufort, N. ('., is for the present closed as a hotel.

Montuotje, For the Board of Trustees. W. J. You no, Principal. Raleigh, N. C, July 9, 1894, Strike Brevities. At all points in California except Sac ramento and Oakdale the situation has turned against the strikers. Five hundred troops with five Gatlin guns aud two Hotchkiss guns are en route to San Francisco by trains. The strikers there are wild over the news. There are 3000 ol them and flushed with victory over United States Marshals and State police and a complete victory over more than a thousand State malitia they are just in the mood to resist the regulars and a pitched battle may result. The strikers in Galveston, Texas, had a little conflict with police and deputy marshals. They were trying to take twq Pullman cars from a train but did no.t succeed. They afterwards damaged eu. gines and hold up some trams, At Spfmg Valley, 111 , the regulars fired into a mob composed of Hungarians, Poles and other foreigners that were pelt ing them with stones. They killed one and wound.d several. The mob then broke for timiirr nnd lias not assembled. iinoe. Almost a Centenarian.

A pleasure yacht with Messrs. Strud wick and Woodward, of Norfolk, and friends aboard, has arrived at Morehcad. At Dover the unusual occurrence of a hog dropping dead as he was wnlkiucr along a street took place a fen ' ago. We heir that, the charges against Rev. Mr. West, the Northern Methodist pastor at Ocracoke, have been investigated and that he has been acquitted. The City Council having repealed tbe dog muzzling ordinance most of the can nines now have their usual freedom. Occasionally, however, one can lie seen still wearing the muzzle. Governor Carr issues a proclamation offering $100 reward for the arrest of Ed. S. Hart, who is charged with burning the barn of Mrs. Mary Dewey near Vance bo ro. The Revenue Cutter Colfax is again at Morehead City, and the officers are no doubt taking delight in mingling with happy throngs at the Atlantic hotel, at which place their wives are spending the summer. Mr. Wright, ot Aurora, has planted a crop ol Jersey reds, for northern shipment He expects to ship a thousand barrels. It is said that more profit is sometimes realized from them than from Irish po tatoes. Our people arS again rejoiciug in the luxury of a double daily train on the A. & N C Railroad. We now nave a traiu from Morehead at 8:17 a. m. aud 2:28 p. m.;and from Goldsboro at 9:50 a. m. and 6 p. m. The train which goes to More head City in the morning terries there from 11:14 to 1:12 practically 2 hours. It seems that we are to have plenty of candidates in the 3d Congressional Dis trict. Among the five that we have heard of is Mr. Duncan E. Mclver, a cousin of our young townsman, Mr. W. D. Mclver. Mr. Mclver is only thirty-three years old and when in the State Senate, 1887. was the youngest man there. Miss Meta Chestnut t, from the Indian Territory, is now visiting at Grilton. Miss Chest nutt is a sitter of Rev. I. L. Chestnutt, the first pastor of tbe Disciple church of New Beme. For lour years past she has been teaching in the Indian Territory, and is back to spaod a few months with her relatives and friends of her early years. In tbe fall she will re turn to her post of duty. Gen'l Gaston Lewis who has been down to the encampment running off the grounds previous to the carrying of the troops, passed through returning to the prettiest and best he has ever seen. The grounds have been improved con siderably since last year. One of the improvements is that the brush his been cleared otit between tbe grounds and the railroad, giving breeze free access to and through the grounds. Senator Daniel and Senator Jarvis, of North Carolina, had a conference Wed nesday with Col. Berpell, State Senator D. J. Turner, R. S. Cobn,of Norfolk.Va.; Dr. J. F. Bryant and P. D. Camp of Franklin, Ta., representing the North Carolina Lumber Association, who are trying to have the duty upon lumber re stored J to that place upon it by (he House tariff bill. New Berne being a great lumler section, considerable inter est is felt in whatever is done in Congress in reference to, the tariff upon lumlier. Death of the Heaviest Man on Earth. Many Jouhnaj, readers and New Berne Fair visitors will recall the rotund figure of John Hanson Craig who was at tlie New Berne Fair in 1892, and was then the heaviest man in the world, his weight being 90.7 pounds. fir. Craig, we are sorry to say, is no longer the heaviest man on earth, for he died last week in Danville, Indiana. jt the time Mr. Craig was at our Fair he weighed Q07 pounds; at the time of his death be weighed 735 pounds. A special coffin, of course, had to be pre pare 1 for him. His first wife, Miss Mary KissJer, is said to have been almost as large as her husband. His last wife was a smalljlady. Mr. Craig had one child, the offspring of tbe last man1' age. Mr. Craig's weight at two years old was 206 pounds, at which time he took the thousand dollar premium in Barnum's baby show In 1858- Wake Forest College. We call the attention of our readers to t he advertisement of this well-known in stitution, which begins its 60th session September 5th, next. It is what it claims to be, a distinctive ly Christian college. It seeks to give the highest culture un der the spirit and influence of the best type of Christianity. Its sons are to be found in high and honored callings in nearly every State of the Union. Three of the six honorary scholar shpis open to North Carolina students are held by Wake Forest men. Its. faculty represents the culture and scholarships ot Johns Hopkins, Washing ton and Lee and the University of Vir ginia. President Harper of the great Chicago University is reported to have said recently, "Wake Forest is the best college in the South.'' The college claims to offer thorough scholarships in a religious atmosphere at a minimum cost.

New Berne does an immense trade in lumber shipping. .Although we see it going on around us wo are apt to lose sight of the ma.gnit.idr of Ihe industry and orr.idonall y need to refresh ourselves ,th some of the tigurcs that we tnav . j properly appreciate its importance.

Onslow Co., Sulphur aud Iron Springs. How many Eastern North Carolinians ' who believe in the value of White Sulph- ., ur springs aud Ihe eff eacy pf the water' -and curing diseases and who' ' leve to drink freely of the health JTing J waters when they are at such ' springs y; know that about midway liet ween New Berne and Wilmington ther are two such springs fine ones which contain both- ' sulphur and iron and are of decided bene-' i fit in building up ihe debilitated and pro- moteing the general health fulness of those ' who partake of them. These springs are about ten miles from -' im-Houuiuiu am 1 1 1 1 1 1 miu uuiui Ul Cl other and are near Catherine Lake. ' One of them is on the land belonging to tbe estate of tbe lale Dr Chas. Duffy, and tbe '-. latter belongs to the estate of Sheriff Mur rill of Ownslow county, and the family ' residence is close to the spring. This ia a ,.' very large spring and it occupies a prom inent place iu Prof. Kerr's Geology of North Carolina. So large is it that it is , calculated to disc.'iarge 2,000 gallons of water per minute? Until the W. N. & N. Railroad wa ' built, the long drive necessary to reach these springs was against tlieir coming In to much notice, but now we see no reason why tlie use of the springs should not be', developed, add wide attention he given to them. The name by which the larger of these springs is designated is Alum spring but this is a misnomer entirely missleading . and should be abolished. A Swindler oVhis Rounds. The Richmond Dispatch has a special telling of the operations of a swindler at Windsor. He was dressed iu the habili- ... meats of a Roman Catholic Priest, and came into town with a lot of patent medi- ? cine w hic h be pretended -to give away, ' but he succeeded in getting about a hun- ' died dollars from the audience which ha ! promised lie would return, but having'- secured w hat he could lie struck his horse and left in a run, He victemixxl the people of Edentou out of over fc'JO". and about 100 at Ply- mouth. His name was not learned. Let the different towns be on their ; guard agiinsi Ihe rascal. Some yean ago . a New Berne crowd was successfully gulled by it voluble scamp in somewhat the same stvle. The Peaceful South, the Lawless North. When the ureal coal strike took place last April it extended to but few Southern, coal mines, and while there was much lawlessness and rioting by tlie strikers in other sections there was hut very little ot that in the South. When the different contingents ol the Coxey army were orgauized to march on Washington not a single on went from the South. Senator Daniel tells of an inci dent that occurred while the Coxey gsXTS was maucruvring about the Capital. Hon. T. B. Reetl was standing on a portico be side a Southern brigadier viewing the parade. Turning to the Southerner be asked, "What do you think of that?" The reply was, "Tins is tlie happiest day of my life. There is not a single white or black man lrom the South in that crowd. Tl-ey are all from the protection States of the West and North.' Mr. Reed had no moie imeslions to ask. Also tbe great railroad strike has scarcely made an impression on the South save the harm it lias done Southern fruit growers, w ho have been cut off lrom their usual market by it. And there has been ao strike, no disorder, no destruction of property in tbe South. All this must have the effect of putting the South as a section of quiet, peace, security and re gard for law, in an enviable light. Wil mington Messenger. A Change in Judges.
