The Populist are very prond ot their
convention. Indeed it was the best they
have ever held. The one two years ngo
was nothing less than a broad farce.
Yesterday Marion Batler was the master

A aneer remark was made on the

It was that whatever little conten

and there were few, had been

THE COUNTHY'S CONDITION.
The Proposed Tariff Bill, the Highest
in the World But Some Improve,
ments Over McKInley's Some
thing Wrong Senator Jar
vis. Editor Journal: There has never
been a period in the history of the finan
cial policy of the Government of the
United States of so much doubt and un
certainty as now exists. What will be the
outcome, no man can predict with cer
tainitj the future alone can reveal. At
present, paralyzation of trade, riots,
bloodshed, rebellion, the calling out of
armies, and starvation exists in one sec
tion of this great country, and the richest
iu the ivorl I, all, the legitimate results of
30 years of Republican legislation. The
people in that section have been taught
by Republican spcakeis and editors, that
high tariff meant high wages, but trusts
and combinations ot wealthy manufact
urers, followed bv reduc tions in wages,
together with increasing poverty have dis
pelled that delusion. They now see that
a protective tariff !enefits the few at the
expense ot the many, ana mat the corn-
give powir ol the public plunder ot one
section at the expense of the other, is all
that holds and has always held the Re
publican party together. Abe Lincoln
once expressed the patriotic sentiments of
that party in a few words, when he said
' it we let Alie south go, where shall we
get our tariff."
The present taritt but bclore congress,
if passed, is the highest protective tariff
in the civilized world, it is protection, pure
and simple, though it is a little improve
ment on the McKinley tariff, snd yet
there is an intense opposition to its pass
age. The tariff may or may not be the
cause of the present financial distress
throughout the country, but there is
something wrong in the legislation of
this county when tvi o hundred and fifty
thousand people own half of the wealth of
C7 millions of people in this the richest
country in the world.
There are senators in congress, calling
themselves democrats opposing with
might and main, the fairest and most
equitable tax in the whole bill, namely
the income tax, the only sensible plea
they can bring against its passage, is, that
it is inquisitorial, it so, this objection can
be urged against all taxation, but it is an
objection urged only by those who try to
evade taxes. There is a railroad run
ning out of a Northern city called the
tax dodgers train, patronised by many
rich people, who trausact business in the
City, and live in country residences so as
to escape city taxation upon ttieir person
If a man owns live hundred thousand
or a million of dollars worth of property
he pays only city, county and state taxes,
but he doe not pay one cent of taxation
to the support of the United States gov-
eroment, unless he spends a part of his
income, in other words if he speuds 2,000
dollars a year, he only pays, indirectly,
the federal taxation upon the importation
of what he consumes either in food or
clothing; and if his property consists ol
untaxable bonds of the government, he
does not pay one cent of taxation of an v
kind, he eoes scot tree. In view of this
may it not be asked in all propriety, if
the government is only intended for the
I have carefutly read the speech ol
Senator Jarvis on cotton bagging and the
income tax. The cotton bagging trust
was an iniquitous scheme, and imprison
ment for life would have been too ligi t a
punishment for the originators. The
senator's remarks upon the income tax
are unanswerable and appreciated by all
who have had the good fortune to have
read them. Gov. Carr cannot be too
highly commended for the appointment
of Thomas J. Jarvis to till the place of
Senator Vance. I am of the opinion,
yea, verily, I know, that North Carolina
has never had two senators to whom the
people are as much attached and to whom
North Carolina is as much indebted tor
public services as they are to Senators
Vance and Jarvis: the memory of the
lorrrier will always live iu the hearts of the
people; and may the eminent services of
the latter le extended fur many years.

The AssIstant-RepBDlIcau Party Meets
and Makes i Nominations,
We Uike the following account of the
Third Party State Convention procecd-
ings at U
from the Wilmington
Raleigh, N. C, Aug. 1, 1894. The
Populist Stale convention met at Metro
Dolitan hall at 11:30 o'clock. It was
called to order by Marion Butler, who
was greeted with great applause when lie
stepped on the stage. Capt. J. B.Lloyd
read the roll of counties, in accordance
with the request of Mr. Butler. The
floor was rilled with delegates, the nunr
be; apparently being 400. In the gallery
there were at least 300, some delegates,
some spectators, many of them lanucrs,
and there were many negro onlookers.
A few colored delegates Jwere noticed
on the floor. It waa very hot and fans
and hats waved incessuiHlj. Iu a private
box sat a quite pretty young lady, a very
unusual sight at a political assemblage.
Some of the most earnest Populists
who attracted, attention were W. S.
Barnes S. O. Wilson, W. H. Worth, J.
W. Denmark, Dr. Cy. Thompson, Buck
Kitchen, Harry Skinner, W. F. Stroud,
and Dr. Pat. Exum. At 11:40 o'clock
Rev. S. O. Norris opened the convention
with prayer, at Mr. Butler's request. He
prayed most earnestly fir the Populist
party and its success. It was truly a
Mr. I'.utler "than made a few remarks,
while Mr. Richmond Pearson, Mr. II. C.
Ewart, and Mr. V. S. Lusk,. all well
known Republicans, were sitting in the
rear of the, stage; exercising perhaps a
fatherly and kindly supervision over this
gathering ot -'associate Republicans.
Mr. Butler appointed as temporary
chairman Capt. Lloyd, and as temporary
secretary Mr. J. W, Denmark, of the
While the committees were out there
were calls for Harry Skinner, who said
he appreciated the call and termed his
reception "almost an ovation." He said
he admired the Populist pluck. He
said he did not want office. Had
he wanted office he would have
remained in the Democratic party.
He said the Populist party was the
only one which could save the country.
He took occasion to condemn the march
ol the Coxey army and the strikes at
Homestead and Cuicago, but said a
seciety which did not recognize the
brotherhood of man or the fatherhood of
God was destined to disruption, and a
party which would not legislate for the
people ought to be sunk into oblivion.
While Col. Skinner was speaking a
number of Republicans took their seats
in rear of the stage. Among these were
C. M. Bernard. Dr. Mott, J. C. L. Har
ris, H. L. Grant, W. A. Guthrie, O B.
Dockery, W. A. Baily and others.
These appeared to enjoy Skinner's re
marks, even though he said the Demo
cratic and Republican parties belonged
to the devil. He asserted that the Peo
ple's party was the savior ot the people.
He declared that the party must put up
only the test, ablest and purest men to
be nomiuatcd lor treasurer and justices,
men equal to those the Democrats will
name. , He then spoke of G rover Cleve
land and John Sherman as -'pirates." but
got very faint applau e for this remark.
Ine cliairinan ot the committee on
permanent orgai izatioa reported, recom
mending 1 rotessor John Graham, of
Warren, as permanent chairman, and J.
B Lloyd and J. W Denmark and editors
of reform papers as permanent secretaries.-
The committee on platform reported.
through Marion Butler.
The platform declares for free coinage,
16 to 1; denounces the repeal of the
coinage of silvtr; reaffirms tbejast
bta.e and National platf rms; de
nounces the refusal to use silver, as
well as gold dollars; favors abolition
of National banks and the issue of
treasury notes, these to be legal tender for
all debts; denounces both Republicans
and Democrats for contracting the cur
rency and for issuing interest-bearing
bonds in time of peace; denounces the
McKinley Tariff bill and the pending
Tariff bill and the tax on sugar and other
necessaries, terming the pending Tariff
bill as a cowardly makeshift for tariff
reform; favors a graduated income
tax, favors laws against dealing in futures
declares that State rather than National
plat forms should govern Representatives
where platforms conflicts opposes for
eign immigration; opposes monopolies;
sympathizes whh the oppressed, but op
poses rioting or anything else not in
strict compliance with the laws; att.uk.
the administration and Congress for de
bauchery and riotous living, and points
with pride to the little band of Populists
at Washington; favors four months pub
lic schools; condemns the Democrats for
failure to enforce the anti-trust laws and
against broken banks, favors a reforma
tory; condemns the last Legislature for
lavish expenditure and tor failure to col
lect back taxes: condemns the election
methods of Democrats iu the last election
in certain couuties and demands changes
in the Election law. The platform was
adopted by a rising vote.
After some dispute the platform com
mittee was instructed to retire aud pre
sent to the convention the names of four
persons for the Supreme couit. The com
mittee presented the following resolu
tion: "We declare our inteution to cast our
votes for W. T. Faireloth for chief jus
tice, Walter Claik for associate justice to
succeed himself, D M. Furches to succeed
Judge MacRae, and H. Q. Connor to suc
ceed Judge iiurweii
Kitchin nominated Spier Whitaker for
chief justice, but this was quickly with
drawn. Nat Macon nominated Walter Clark
for chief justice. This also was withdrawn
and the lour names reported by the plat
form committee were nominated by ac
clamation. The executive committee was empower
ed to till vacancies of any who declined
to In; candidates.
W. H. Worth was also by acclamation
nominated for treasurer. William A.
Graham was placed iu nomination by his
name was quickly withdraw.
As soon as the Stale coventii'ii ad
journed at 0:30 o'clock the Populist Con
gressional convention of this district met
and nominated W. F. Stroud, of Chapel
Hill, lor Congress.

Southern boys in the college, but their
influence Jwas out of proportion to the
numbers. Young Daves was jdiligent, of
a social tcmperment and was popular.
He was consequently chosen President of
various college societies and was the
marshal of his class.
In classical studies he continued to be
specially proficient and had the advantage
of having admirable instruction from
Sophocle.J a Dative Greek who was
counted one of the most thorough of
teachers, and a peifect muster of all Hel
Mr. Daves graduated in 1854. with
second honors, and with a prize lor ora
tory, then studied law and h ft Cambrdge
in 1856 with the degree of Bachelor of
Laws and after a brief time spent with an
established law firm was admitted as a
member of the Maryland bar.
But just at this time he was elected to
the Greek Professorship in Trinity Col-h-ge,
Hartford, and it being a pursuit he
loved, law books were laid aside for his
favorite classics and he devoted himself,
with diligence and success, to the duties of
of this position for five years.
In 1861 he sailed for Europe and spent
ten years in the Eastern hemisphere. He
first attended lectures lor a short time at
Bonn and in the autumn settled at
Berlin at that most interesting period in
German history when William had just
been crowned King of Prussia and the
initial measures of his reign were the
appointment of the theu little known
Bismarck and the perfecting ot that fine
army organization which revolutionized
the military eystem of Europe.
After travelling much in Germany,
both studying and teaching, he moved to
Paris in the spring of 1863, ,at that bril
liant period in the French capital when
Louis Napolecn, flushed with his victories
in the Crimea and in Italy was posing as
the arbiter of Europe, and when the
court of the Tuilleries was the centre of
the highest political interest. -'The Em
press Eugene was then at the meridian of
her beauty, and was the acknowledged
Queen of taste and fashion, and around
her throne were fluttering the butter-flies
of every clime.''
After a year spent in France, Professor
Daves moved to Vevey on the lake of Ge
neva and there established a private school
for American boys. He thus spent five
years, the routine b 'ing broken by fre
In 1803 he spent a month at Rome
when the city was still under Papal sway
and the city garrisoned by French troops,
upon whose bayonets rested the Papal
In 1867 he attended the World's Fair
at Paris. At this time the second empire
seemed at the pinnacle of its glory. The
sovereigns, statesmen ajd illustrious men
of every country in Europe crowded the
French capital and were entertained
with great military pageants to show
them that France was invincible in
In 18;9 Mr. Daves moved with his
pupils from Vevey to Florence.
Again he reiched Paris on a summers
day in 1870 just as the news was received
which furnished the pretext for declaring
war against Germany and found all
France wild with excitement and then
passed over into Germany and back to
Italy in the Autumn.
Then with his pupils he took a jour
ney in the Orient spending nearly three
mouths amcng the wonders of Egypt,
thence through the Suez canal going
thence to Syria and the Holy Land visit
ing its most important places and end
ing at Mt. Carmel. Then on the travel
lers went to Constantinople the meeting
point of European and Asiatic life and
then on to Greece and R mie where an
:iudiem e was granted to Prof. Daves by
Pope I'io N.uio. There the summer was
passed in slowly travelling aero is Europe
ending with Rotterdam and London and
then Prof. Daves came back to Baltimore
after an absence of ten years, settled
there and devoted himself .to private
teaching and lectures on literary topic.".
Of late years his interest has centered
mainly in colonial history, and it was
through his efforts aud influence that the
monument to the heroes of the Maryland
time was erected on Guilford battle field,
and he organized the lrginia Dare Me-
morial Association, the company lormed
to purchase and preserve old Fort Ral-
cigh on Roanoke Island, the birth place
ot Anglo-American civilization.
Prof. Daves was an nc'ive nitjodcr of
the Cincinnati and of Hie society of the

of officers of the Continental line.
We close this notice with expressed
opinion of our townsman Mr. Jonatlian
Havens, a friend of the family.
In conversation with him he said that
he considered Professor Daves one of the
brighe3t intellects ever born in North

mental gifts, and above all the highest
type of a christian gentleman.

ridges A Brilliant Engagement.
A great deal ot interest had bee-i mani
fested in the sham battle between Ihe two
sections of the New Berne Naval Reserve.
The Division under command of Lieut.
Clark, marched from its armory about
sunset, forty strong, to i he fair grounds,
where section 2, in charge of Ch f Petty
officer Daniels, was placed at the n.rf..
we&t corner of the grounds under cover
of buildings erected for fair purposes.
Section 1, in command ol Lieut. Roberts,
was formed in line at the southern extre

than a few sharDreoorta iant? out from the

from their opponents, aided by the big
howitzer which bellowed forth, necessi
tated a retreat.
Section 1 came from behind their
breast-work where they had been so stub
bornly planted, and made a charge. Dan
iels, who was so admirably aided by bis
petty officers, soon rallied his men, and
again the two sections were brought face
to face, and the contest waged with fury.
The darkness was tamed into light, and
firing was so rapid that it was one con
tinuous roar, each contending for
the supremacy, and showing no disposition
of yielding until all of their ammunition
The young men acquitted themselves
