All the proceedings of the Populist State convention and of the Republican conference here were of unusual interest. Your correspondent's constant aim was to get ia the inside, as to news, and stay there. Yonr readers knew twenty-four hours ahead about what would be done 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 band. It a storm threatened he stilled it with a. word. He spoke always with force. He is a floe chairman. II. G. Ewart, on ot the Bepublican frieods who was sittinz on the stage looking with Dleased interest at the procoedinjjs. said that he wished the Republicans bad such a chairman who conla control so thoroughly. Indeed Butler bad the air. and almost used the words or a master, A aneer remark was made on the stage, and this was of coarse an "aside.-' It was that whatever little conten tions there were in the convention, and there were few, had been preaiT.uiged, for effect, the plat form havinz been prin'ed some days ago, and the ticket for the Supreme court hav ing been arranged evidently a rortnignt ago. A dispute would start, a douot De raised, just onongb to lead a casual on looker to think there is no "machine" in this, when to and behold at a word the prepared plans were pushed through without diistnt. It was the plan up to yesterday morn ing to nominate Professor John Graham for State treasurer, but then a change was tnade and Mr. W. H. Worta was put up. Professor Graham being complimented with the permanent chairmanship. Did not the dozen ot Kepubtic&ns w ho sat n the stage, (all save Losk in the rrw", be at the very front) know just what was Ing to be done, almost to the minutest detail? It looks as if they did. Losk. always a serious man, seemed a stranger to a smile, and Richmond Pear son, who if reports be true, has an "army contract" on his bands in the .Ninth dis trict was by no means blithesome. But the other Republicans were joyous. C. M. Bernard, of Qreenviue. a great fusionist. was alno8t,boylika in his joyousoess. The convention handled the county governuent aiatter gingerly.

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 al property. 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 rich. 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.

POlTLIbT CONVENTIONS. The AssIstant-RepBDlIcau Party Meets and Makes i Nominations, The Plalforui. We Uike the following account of the Third Party State Convention procecd- ings at U leiuh. from the Wilmington Messenger: 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 political party. 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 Progressive Farmer.. 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 PLATFORM. 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. THE NQMITATIONS. 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. Fireman's Championship Belt. 'The Greenslioro Record says: The Championship Belt offered by the North Carolina State Fireman's Association to the hose reel team making the best time in the hand hose contests at the annual tournament in Winston, August 30-31, has been received by Secretary Grffith, and is now on exhihiiion at Farrar's jewelry store, where it is being admired by all lovers ot the beiutitul. It was made at Col. C. G. Braxmars establish ment in New York, and is the handsom est lelt ever seen in Grcens'ioro. "The belt is surmounted by an eagle, immediately under which is artistically blendid the National colors. The en graving is very fine, and is: North Caro lina State Firemen's Association Cham pionship Belt. Hand Hose Race.' Un der this is the Coat ol Arms of North Carolina. It has eight links and buckle each link burnished, heavily gold pla'.ed, with an embossed buckle. It cost $75.00." Members of the New Berne Hose Reel companies, is not the probability of se curing that belt sufficient to incite to diligent practice? Prof. Edward Graham Daves. The announcement of the deith ot this cultured gentleman aiears in another column. Not only in New Born Ihe place of his nativity and in Baltimore the place of his residence will the death ofj this gcutlenian be mourned, but wherever he is known, and there is scarcely any tell ing to what extent that was, for he was not only eminent is a scholar, but had in the three score and six years of Iris life mingled with many of the very promi nent people of both hemispheres. He w;ls bom in this city. His edu cation commenced in the New Berne Academy, and he early showed marked taste for the classics, ;lnd at the age of twelve years he was at the head of his class as a student of Cicero and Virgil, thus giving token in early life of his men tal ubi lit v aud scholarly tastes. j Commencing at the age of fourteen he spent three years under select private tutors while living on a plantation with a relative. Theu he entered Harvar.l College. This was at the time when Jarcd Sparks, the pioneer explorer among the archives of American history was 1'ivsideut, and Pierce, the great mathematician, was among the faculty. Among the after wards eminent men w ho were students at the same time were President Elliot, Bis hop Perry, Furncss, the Shakesperian, the younger Agassi and Rev. Philips Brook", D. D. This was at a time when there were few 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 lenic lore. 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 quent journeys. 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 thione. 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 arms. 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.

Carr has commuted the death sentence ot Dick Broadux of Caswell county to life imprisonment. He was under sentence to be hanged Saturday, for rape. We are not posted as to the circumstances attending this case but as a rule allowing such criminals to escape with anything less than a broken neck f nd that speedily when the law is allowed j to have its course with them is one of the maiu things that encourages lynch law. The Manufacturers Record tells of a North Carolina cotton mill that has aver aged 22J per cent, per year for six year", and of anothe- one which has doubled its ! original capital in five years, besides pay- j Dg 13 per cent, and buying new maohin- ery out of its profits. We wonder what kind of showing the New England mills can give against this. The South is bound to become the great cotton mauu. tacturiug centre of the world, and New Berne should easily realize this and keep Sace with Ihe development of the in ustry. We have advantages for the business even greater than the average of southern towns. THE BATTLE FOUGHT. Not With Bullets, But Blank Cart 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 mity of the roe track with the twelve pound Uowitaer at its right The former section made the advance, but no sooner were they in firing distance than a few sharDreoorta iant? out from the eiieaiy M-cretea in au entrenchment. This wai met with a fusilade from section 2 which was rapidly advancing and tiring at intervals, always kneeling or lying flat on the ground. Their expos ure, and the rapid and continuous fire 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 was exhausted The young men acquitted themselves splendidly, and were congratulated by the commanding officer for their discipline, and soldierly bearing. Lieut. Winslow, coiumnndiog the State Battallioo, was on the grounds mad pronounced the entire manoeuversof exceptional excellence and praisworthy. There was a number of spectators pres ent who spoke of the engagement as ex citing and thrilling. Among ?hera were a few Confederates who spoke in the highest terms of the naturalness in re semblance to real battle. A Colore Affray. A colored man named John McRae alias Jas. Oden, who lives on Mr. C. W. Mcllwain's plantation, a few miles from the city became involved in a difficulty with his wife Thursday, and beat her and also inflicted a wound upon bir arm with some sharp instrument. She says he had a knite in one hand and a hatchet in the other, and she does not know which was used. The woman jumped from a window and ran with her husband after her. Neighbors interfred and Mcltac shot one of them, Isaac Slater, col., in the arm with, a pistol. lacRae then left some suppose he has run away and the wo man came to town and had her wounds dressed. A Bank Pony for Massachusetts. Mr. 8. N. Brickhouse, the wholesale shoe dealer of Norfolk, who has been canvassing East Carolina in the interest of his house, was among the passengers on the steamer Neuse yesterday. He is juBtup from Carterei. county and while there he purchased from Mr. B- J. Bell of Beaufort, one of the prettiest bank ponies he could find for his friend Mr. (J. W. Cbttse of Massachusetts. The pony will have a journey of a thousand miles. He is designed to be a pet for Mr. Chase's chil dren and owing to the docile disposition of the "banker," as is well known here no better one for the purpose can be found. Another Store Burglary. The grocery store of Mr. J. R. Parker, jr., was broken into Tuesday night, the entrance being effected from the street by smashing one of the large panes of glass. Despite his trouble and risk the thief seems to have secured very little. The money drawer was rifled, but Mr. Parker very prudently leaves hut little money in it The drawer had only about seventy ive cents in it and that was in very' small ahange. A few cigars were taken out of a box, and this was all that could be mi?sed. Though the amount stolen was small, the offence is none the less serious and it is to be hoped the thief will be detected and receive his juat deserts as those will, mo doubt, who are now laying in Craven county jail awaiting trial for burglarizing Mr. Guy Lane's store. Feather Renovator. The old house in the centre of the al ley which fronts the Baptist chuch is be ing changed into a place for the steam renovating of feather beds. Mr. A. G. Hojt, ot Washington, N.

He will-begin this business the first of next month. Klnaey Seminary Improvements. Kinsey's Seminary will open this fall on abetter basis than ever before.
