' mmendation to Remove
the Xegro Taylor.
It is unquestionably Mr. Cieveiaii I s
present intention to permit the tariff bill
to become a law without hN signature.
There is no danger of his vetoing the bill,
though he would probably like to eb so
if the business condition of the country
would admit of his doing so. It is evi
dent however, that be docs not aut the
bill to go to the .archives of the State- De
partment with his signature attached.
It would be somewhat of a humiliation
for him to approve the measure -.. ;.:ch
be has already so roumliy denounced, and
by withholding bis signature he- can
maintain his attitude of disapproval.

The Rac f r Senator.
The is-m s involv ed in the coming elec
tion in this State will lie bitterly contested
and the Democratic party has need of its
best men if victory is to be achieved. The
complexion ol the next Senate ofibe
United States is a matter of grave concern
for it was in that branch of Congress I
that the cause of Democracy has just :l j,00i ,ieili of- ,n0nev lately in rnacadem
gone down in gloom. Two of our most j jzijr the roads, and "to protect them have
prominent citizens and statesmen seem to ;
liave entered the arena and stripped for
the contest oetore tne suite uas neen
saved. Would it not be well to bear in
mind that they are not the only men in
the Stjito woithy to wear the Senatorial
toga? In the event that neither of these
listinguished citizens can be elected the
question arises, who would most fitly
represent the dignity and integrity of this
grand old State V
There is a typical North Carolinian
modest, learned, studious, upright, here
in his domestic life, tried and found faith
ful in public life, the Hon. II. G. Connor,
of Wilson, whose name would inspire
confidence, and whose election to the U.
S. Senate would insure his active efforts
to procure legislation in the interest of
:he people. The Old North State is to
be congratulated that she has such men
who do not seek public positions but
whose patriotism make them ready at all
times to serve the State.

A special from Raleigh to the Wil

the first armed resistance to British au
thority, and at the battle of Alamance in
1771 was shed the first blood in the strug
gle for liberty. At Charlotte in Mecklen
burg county, on May 20, 1775, was made
the first Declaration of Independence, ami
when hostilities had fairly begun, North
Carolina was the lirst olony to vote ex
plicitly for absolute separation from the
mother country on April 12. 177G.
There is an interesting link of connec
tion Letween the Mecklenburg Declara
tion and the affair at Lexington, news of
which reached Charlotte on May 19, A
county convention was in session, which
bad been called to consider the recent de
claration in Parliament that the colonies
w re in a state of actual rebellion. The
tidings from Massachusetts stirred the
patriots to immediate action; Ephriam
Brevard (should we forget his name':)
was appointed to draw up resolutions,
and tbe next morning he reported his
memorable charter of freedom.
May I venture to read to you part of
that Mecklenburg Declaration, bearing in
mind the fact that it antedates by more
than a year the trreat event which we
celebrate today. It is brief, and some of
its phrases are noteworthy.
1. "Resolved. That whosoever directly
or indYictly abets, or in any way, form
or manner, coumenances the unchartered

THE CRUISE OVER
Xhc RoservPS Coma ,Jack e,jghted
The (Jood Record On 'he War
Boats. The meaibers ot tbe New Rerii- Naval
Reserves came back last night highly
elated over their trip, and nil in the best
nf spirits except Lieut. D. V. Kobeits
who was somewhat ill.
All the young men report the biggest
kind of a time and say they would not
have missed it foj anything.
In addition to the pleasure they have
had, the Reserves have the lienefit of the
genuine exoerienee of life on board a
' 'le.-hip and though none of them allud-
ed ii it they bring with them the proud
consciousness nf duty well pert'onm d.
-Vs tbe reports have shown they took
hold of every portion of the work early or
late. ,iasy or hard, in good spirit
wlikh is the onlv proper way for a
military man to do. The State has good
i cause to be proud of her Reserve, and
every encouragement .should be given
; them not only by the State and the gen
eral government, but by the cities and
counties in which thny are located to ever
maintain a good organization and go for
ward to even higher perfection.
The Reserves Praised.
Lieut. F. Winslow wdio stayed over a
day longer at Wilmington than the other
reserves returned home last night, lie
pronounces the cruise a most successful
and enjoyable affair ami ho is highly
pleased with the warm prais - be-lowed
upon th; Reserves, both by the oflieers of
the Montgomery and by Lt. Tyler id the
United S'atc Navy, the inspecting officer.
We (juote from the Star the opinion of
the latter officer:
"Lieut. Tyler, U. S. N., who was s nt
by the Government with the Xavnl Bat
talion on their ten day cruise, was ap
proached yesterday hy a Star reporter in
regard to the show made by the North
Carolina Naval Reserves, and he said it
was "number one.'' lie als i slatedth.it
nothing said in favor of the boys could
do them justice, in his opinion. He was
proud of the companies and they will
hear from lum later. He reports having
a most excellent time and will remain
here a lew days."
Lieut. Tyler will come up to-lay to
leave by the steamer Ncuse this after
noon. To Re-Surface The Macadamized Road.
Notice is given from Washington that
sealed proposals in duplicate subject to
the usual condition will he received at the

will be subject to inspection and mu-t be

Does Not "View the Movement With
We give in auother column mention by
our Washington correspondent ol a meet
ing about to take place in that city hav
ing for its subject Southern development.
The Southern Exchange Association
another organization, the general
offices of which are in New York city,
and which numbers among its members
such ir.cn as Aoiam S. Hewitt and
Chaunccy M. Depew, ot New York.
Hamilton Disston of Philadelphia, Julian
S Carr, of North Carolina, Clifton B.
Breckenridge, of Arkansas, &e., has is
sued a disparaging letter in reference to
this new movement. .
It spiaksof the one who called the
meeting aj "A Mr. William Rogers'' and
says he "registers in New York from
Washington and in Washington stales
that he is from New York.
It says Mr. Rogers obtaiucd a meeting
of tbe Board of trade in Washington and
upon his plea, that the southerners earn
estly desired the co-operation of the board
of Tiade, the Board offered a room and
appointed a committee of reception. The
action of the board ol the representation
he made is spoken of as proper.
It says moreover, that the railroads
having issued half-faie rates for the con
vention of the Knights of Pythias, which
convenes in Washington, Mr. Rogers
takes advantage of it to announce that
laihoa Is will issue tickets at half nvles to
attend bis convention.
The letter signed by the President,
Hugh R. Gardner concludes by saying:
T deem it proper to advise you'to gu ird
your people from Ibis and other at tempts
which will frequently be made to take ad
vantage of the work which this Associa
tion has already done, by people who
have selfish interests to serve. The citi
zens of Washington will always do their
best, and take a conspicuous part in any
work which is done, for the good of the
South, and of the whole country; bin
they nor the Southern people will p, rmit
themselves to be iiiiposj-d upon by the
machinations o) disappointed schemers
and pos'tion hunters."
Wo give this that people may be on
their guard. Advantage should be taken
of overy legitimate opening for the ad
vertising or the industrial development
of the South, but, at the same time caution
should be exeriiise 1 that simmers do not,
