A bond issue is considered a necessity
by Mr. Cleveland. He has decided on it,
I heur, because of the pressing exigtncits
of the Treasury. For the past two
months the out go bas excieded the in
come of the Treasury at the rate ot fio
000,000 (ten million dollars) a montk u
does not take a business man to a this
won't do. For over two years I have
done my level best to show i he people
that economy right here in the I". S.

Congressional junkets. Do all these
thinas, gentlemen of the incoming Con-
-tsji and then do as much more in the
same direction and you will take their
strongest weapon out of the hands of the
victorious Popocrats. Fil to do it. an.
you will be compelled to aaree to more
than one bond issue to supply funds lor
all sorts of extra vagiot expenditures. The
tax payers spoke Hov, jjth,. They will
speak again. They will not allow their
servanU to have so much more than they1
can honestly afford to eDjoy.

itself up into a bond issuing mood.
The Chinese army seems to be engaged
in one immense unorganized flight.
The Mugwump newspapers arc engaged
in writing nice little obituary notices for

Mayor-elect Strong is the recipient of
a Presidential mention. This is not a

Tbe U. S Treasury is still losing its
gold. The reserve is decreasing daily.
There was a net loss of $50,000 in one
day, the 14th.
It is as yet impossible to tell the exact
number of Popnlists and Republicans in
the Legislature but as near as can be fig
ured out There wilt be 12 Democrats 19
Kpublieans and 22 Populists in the Ben

Democrats, Some 3'2 Republicans and 41
Cincinnati has reversed her Republican
majority of 24T0O0 and given a Democratic
majority of over 3,000; but it was done
in tbe interest of a pure judiciary, and
shows that tbe people are not to be driven
to unclean government by the party
The next state legislature will probably
be memorialized to make a sufficient ap
propriation to defray the expenses of col
lecting the material and publishing a his
torical account of North Carolina's troops
io the late war. This is an excellent idea
and ought by all means to be done. It is
due from the state to bergallaut sons who

Comrades, for many years at our an

matter of erecting a monument at Xew

this has been a question of lively interest
to u-. and while we have hoped this
could b.- a-complished our fears were,
that we should n ,1 live to sec it an estab

wealth of Connecticut in her liberality,
has provided a way wheteby not only the
loth, but all other Conu. Rcgts. could
erect and dedicate a monument to tlie
memory of those comrades who sleep in
National Cemeteries. For this geaerous
act on the part of the State of Connec

gratituda and apprciation; the - pride we
have in our native State is greatly en
hanced by this generous act.
To the National Government, not only
die surviving comrades, but the friends
au l relatives of the dead, owe their grati

has been taken to collect from the numer

Mr. Editor: The veterans of the
15th Connecticut Regiment commissioned
the w-nter to express to the citizens ol
New Berne their high appreciation of ihe
couitesy and kindness extended to them
during their late visit to this city. It will
ever b lememb.-red as the spontaneous
expressjou of tlie largest liberality and
pur. st patriotism.
To the Confederate Veterans they de
sire to tender their wannest gratitude and
the assurance of their most fraternal re
gard. Had they been told before their
coming that such a reception awaited

that it is past, it is a revelation as beauti

Response by Mr. J. S. Msnlx to the
Above Toast at tbe 15th Connecticut
Volunteers Banquet, Nov. 14th.
It is with feelings of more than ordinary
pleasure that I respond to this summons as
the time and circumstances are admirably
conjoined to speak about the people
among whom I have lived so long.
While not a Yankee in the sense em
ploye t at the North, yet I atn a good
enough one for this occasion, having been
bom just across Long Island Sound fiom
Connecticut, in the city ol New York.
While it is true, that the animadversions
upon the people ot the South as to their
treatment of the men from the North who
have come among tbem, have in a great
measure been disproved, and every fra
ternal and hospitable occasion, such a,s it
is our good fortune to partigipate in this
evening, but emphasies this disproval,
yet I feel that no opportunity should be
lost ou the part of the element I repre
sent and in whose name I speak to testify
to the kindness, courtesy and goodness of
heart 01 these people of the Sooth among
whom I have lived for thirty years.
Coming among them a boy and residing
continuously with them all these years J
am in a position to correctly speak of
these people, and I say now and here,
that so kintlly have I been treated, so
pleasant has been my associations, so al
together sanslactory is my home among
them, that it would be a very great in
ducement that would tempt me to change
my abode, or sever the relations now ex
isting. In this connection I desire to add
that these conditions have involved no
surrender of per.-onal or political qpin.iQus,
but is rather emphasised'hy the tact, ' that
ip this latter respect I have diffrred from
a large majority of ny white fellow citi
2en, and while thus differing 1 have
never found that it has affected their
good will, their courtesy "i- kiuuly iretit
ment. Nor is my case exceptional, I but
voice the experience of every northern
man I know, who did not put himself
beyond the pale of decent consideration
bv any people.
Say then for me to your people, that
those of the South are ready a,Qd do wel
come every good citizen to their borders,
that the accident of birth, or the possession
of certain religion or political opinions
does not affect the character of their wel
come, but good manners and honesty of
purpose, in intent to unite with them
for the upbuilding of their section, and a
mutual interest in the general welfare, is
all they ak; the-e conditions being ful
filled they are a passport to hospitable
homes and hearts.
As yet, this is not ihe section for ihe
erection of colossal fortune?, but textile
seek;er of lie 'dost competence, peacef ul
horn s, the re dest freedom "f politic d
and religiousgbelief we offer theiu.Uest in
ducement and a hearty welcome.

Wound Was Fatal.
In an argument before a jury in Lenoir
county Superior court Wednesday Nov.14,
Mr. Chas. U. Brown of Kinston naed lan
guage reflecting upon the veracity of Mr
Geo. Waters of La Grange township, who
nun given testimony in the cass.
When court adjourned Waters told
Bro wu that tlie remarks were hard upon
him. Brown called him a liar. Waters
retorted by calling Brown a liar, if be said
so. Brown then picked up a chair and
using it with both hands knocked Waters
down, Waters partially breaking the
f -rce ot tlie blow with uplifted hand. The
force of the blow broke one of tbe rounds
of the chair.
Before the blow was delivered Waters
called out to Brown that he would shoot

The bull went into Brown's throat
piercing the wind pipe. Mr. Brown died

Death or Sheriff Dillahunt or Jones.
Our.Trenton correspondent sends news
of the deal h of Mr. La Fayette Dillahunt,
sheriff of Jones county at 'his home, Fri

Mr. Dillahunt was one of the best citi
zens of Jones county. Tbe esteem in
which he was held can be judged from the
fact that he had just served two terms ns
sheriff and been re-elected to that office by
the largest majority given any candidate
in the county. This death will be greatly
regretted, Mr. Dillahunt was not a man of
family; he never had been married.

Senator Ransom says there is no truth
in the rumor of a contemplated extra ses
sion of the North Carolina Legislature to
elect a Democratic Senator, and no foun
dation for the story. According to -the
State constitution, if the Legislature were
called in special session, it would be the
fusion legislature just elected. It will
elect both Senators.
t'BAVCJV IM THE KIKCIIOX.
Had the Democrats of Jbc t'-ounty
Ione Their Fall Duty the Kesali
Least So Far a State Senators Are
Concerned Would Have Been IOer
We publish this morning ihe official
vote of this district for State Senator. Ii
shows that Capt. Swift Galloway was de
Icated by only 186,,Dr. F. A Wbitaker
by only 90 votes.
An examination of the registration
hooks, we are informed, and a compari
son of them with the vote Of 1H02, shows
that fifty or more Democrat right in the
city failed to vole and about three hun
dred in the entire county. If these Demo- '
crats had voted, to Buy hothina' of ihoud
who acted similarly in the other ounties
we would to-day havo the af iff iction of
knowing that Capt. Ga:l wfty knd Dr.
Whitaketwoold be -our next Siatc Sena
tors. But those Democrats stayed at
home end Hie consequence is our candi
dal es will havo to do likewise, notwith
standing their gallant canvass. ,
Again rben' the ovnuvnsfitii floard of
the county met sufficlculS wrrguliu ities to -.
cause their rejection were fchyWut in two
precincts that were counted w!iic)i if they '
had been thrown out woOtd havV thunge l
the result. We refer to Uie.Fourth Ward
of the city and Temple's nrecinct the re
jection of the latfer nlone, as dmatf as the.
majority has proven to be would have
changed the result as it would have taken
14S votes ntf of ft he fusionist Vote. It wa ..
me Uemocrauc 9.
it was clearly shown that at Temple's
precinct the regintraiion book were oien
at Martoq8-store the cond at onlay pre
ceding the euction but the tlecfcB.11 was
held at Temples.
No tlie kWBays r!ai)lV-tbRt. at i!h
dato specified above rile regiratMi books --",'.;'
shall be open at the poJling place.' Jf.'i
Temple's was not the polling1 race the 'i'fj-
election was held at ihe "WrAir nlace 'S .:
which was suflicient to invaliuWt it and '':
cause-it to be thrown out. It Temnle' ,
was the polling place then the registration
books were not opened- at the polling ' v'i.
place as tbe law required, and the vote VV'
should havo been rejected. Take either x"
position you please, the vote 'should hve
been thrown out. 1 j , v
It was also brought to the ..notice of - !.
the board that in tho Fourth. W.l'd of this
city tbe polls were opene fso "late that , ' '
several men whom we coulli naitie, and , '
who presented themselves iu proper . -o
time lost their vote some ot them went a
out of city on the train at 8:30 tftn. Thi
was known prior to tbe deeisioato count . ; .
that ward,and alter it was decide a Re
publican memlicr of the board ..stated to it
t bat the books of that ward ulso were'
opened, not at tho polling place but
somewhere else the second Saturday be
fore the election. !
The facts shown nbove ii'tely gave
the right but made it tue duty of those
canvassing to reject the vole from those :
preciocts. In one of our city elections of
no distant date, ia a contest-between
Democrats the one who received the lar
gest number of votes and no. one we-'
nave heaitl speak of it believes' otherwise
than that they were cast for hiinvin good'
faith was deprived ol the . yflice to
which he was elected simply iiecause of
pencil marks 011 ome t tha ballots,'
which were decided to be a device ami
which led to the rejection of enough bal
lots to change the result Democrats up-';
held the decision, which thnuuh nut
according to the vote as cast wae.nccord-
mg to law, and yet Democrats can be-,
found that when a similar case arises be
tween Democrats and their-apolitical
opponents, seem to luvctr straining t he
law a point in favor of their political '
That the Republicans take whatever ad
vantage of the kind they care Js too well
known to saying there are suthclebt indi
cations that the Populists have the will t
do the same. Only yesterday ire saw iu
an exchange that ia cabarrus county that
tbe Populists township in Cabarra's coun
ty thrown out because they etafhied one
man voted there who lived jn.,$anntber
county. The Populists are very ready t .
take advantage of any techniality ' in the.
elections, but bitterly denedoot lemocrat
for tbe same thing. With tbem it, deoenda
entirely on whose bull 19 gored,'
We are not in favor of finy' unfair
advantage being taken,. but
we do believe in adhering to the law and
reaping whatever advantage iQay como
from so doing. Ui
