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. Capitol k the storting pomt Iroin which u aUjiut jeckleav expenditures. Start witb the Senate, Then cut off ueetess clerks in 'House and Senate, Dispense with consrreesional wake. Aboiiali th ainecnres at the Capitol.

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. Xov., Mrs. Cleveland christened the St. Louii", the largest vessel ever built in America, at the ship yard of the Cramps in Philadelphia. She was accompanied by the Preilept, Jbe members of the CabiDetand their families Senator fUnaom may have ix defer the trans-continental tour. He was here on time, but the other members of the Com. merce committee have not reported.

Capt John B. HusKy who lecciyi dal $2,100 Chiefs place in the Treasury trom Senator Ransom during Cleveland's firs. Administration, euloiiises our Mary Ann in th-j last issue of the Evening htar. this citv. I would like to quote it, hut it is too long It is interesting however, and shows that Capt Husaey is going t be one of the plowJiorses of the late rich harvest in N. C, to get his share oftlu fdder. He has earned it I hear my quondam friend, S. Otho lison, hq . i lo he tbe next secretary ot tht- nate. lie has earned that too. He will cimtrol over two Duoarva nice p'ac s some oi tbem worth 3,000 and 300 Tbe republicans will filibuster, and make a re-orsamzation of the Senate n& -esry after March 4th. The short session of Congress wuicli convenes in loss man tnree weeks win ov; mint notable one. I am making, ar rangements 10 give nty papers I call them mine because I feel a warm per sonal and inendlv interest in all of them II the news. After that adjourns we will all have to sharpen our pencils and write Senators Butler nnd Molt (ur Ewart) Mr. Secretary Otho V llsoo, and perhaps Sergea nt-at-arms Hussey ! IT the democrats ever get in power again let tuecn send senators ana mem bers here wno recognize piow-norses also. SEWS IX BRIEf. And now tbe State of Ohio is working 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 David B. Hill. Woman like, Brooklyn declaring she woald never consent, finally decided to cast ber lot with New York. In a few days Gov. McKinley will get over his present awkwardness and buckle down to the work of ruining the State of Ohio. The Washington Post says North Caro lina seems to be on the high road to town ship currency. These be great days lor Captain Buck KTitchin. Benjamin Harrison may not be a can didate for the Presidency, but he is not going to allow the people to forget his post-offioe address. Mayor-elect Strong is the recipient of a Presidential mention. This is not a new thing for reform Mayors. 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 ate and in the House there will he 47 Democrats, Some 3'2 Republicans and 41 Populists. 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 lash. 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 wore tbe gray. 2s i ! UJ " a g t o H S3 o g S fj o 5 & S3 j eo fit m 5 31!

Relieving as they did, that the safety of the nation depended upon the success of the I'nion army, they left, their homes an 1 ail that men hold" dear I on earth, and hurried to take their place J in the ranks of the nationsdelenders. They 1 were willing to lace the perils of the! camp, the march, and tip: battle; and in I the progress of time they surrendered their lives in detence ol'thecaqse they had so cheerfully espoused, They were self j sacrificing, brave men, and the memory of. such men, who die in defence of a prin ciple they hold def.r and snpred will never cease to lie cherished by the living who arc actuated by the same noble pur pose. These comrades, in the sacrifice of lite in defence ot principle, have left an example of patriotism for tuoceeding gen- eratpjns, and it should he our duty, wherever vve are, in whatever sphere of life we may be placed, to endeavor to em phasize that example, to endeavor to pro mote sentiments of patriotism, particu larly among the youth of our couotl'y, Q that if Go.l so wil'a te elands ot war sh;dl ayaiu oyer npi-eii4 ou,r land there may be found an ever increasing spirit of patriotism flint sh,alj cause a practically universal uprising of our whole people, in defence of the Nations honor, I am reminded that among those pres ent on this occasion there are some who during the late war were adherents of the confederate cause. My friends, we are glad to meet you; permit me to say that the hands that during the ye r- of war grasped the weapons . f war, arc tn day etQiideel to, you pi fellowship and hearty fraternal greetings. We "believe that in the eledicution ot this monument to tfie memory ol our fallen comtytles, we have your hearty gpod will, for, as old soldiers, we know that brave wen, thougli for a time they arc? separated by contrary opiniolis, vylll always respect the memory of men eipially brave. We are glad the war is over unci nils oecome a tning 01 the past, a matter of history. Though on opposing sides: during the conflict, we recognize the fact, that you, as well as we, were acting upon cqnvic tions of duty; and when a matl does that, who cau justly criticise him? Men differ in business ma' ters, they diS'ev houestiy in their opinions 011 political questions, they differ very largely in religious matters, but wdien a mun is ready to stand up in defence of his principles when convinced he is correct in his estiinate p. I duty, who has a moral right to condemn him for such action? There doubtless comes a tune, when men as they become older, an I mure ma ture, are ltd to Change their opinions and convictions; such I believe to be the case to-day ; thirty years ngo there exist ed great differences as o the policy of the government, to that extent that the coun try was divided into two gn at sections, yet to-day, after the lapse of these years, we are. I believe, united in this one grat thing, loyalty to' our undivided Sj'tion And should a foreign nation attem i ;o invade e-ur sheires, the men of Nur.ii vj-ar.s, lina. would respond to the nntiQQS call simultaneously with the nu p, of Connnec Moutj and the solid south, v dh tlu united north, would constitute tie . raudest army the world ever saw. Con federate Veterans, ve are glad to meet mil, and tiust t .. with you, as well as with us, the le v years remaining of life may be full of happiness and joy, and vyhen the last roll cad occurs, may vve ad be found on that Eternal parade gruunii where there is no mqre stnte. sorrow, qr sadness, r.nd where wo shall meet our comrades who have gone before us, Comrades, for many years at our an nual i-e-uniocs we have dicu-sed the matter of erecting a monument at Xew Bertie to the memory of the fallen ones; 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 lished fapt. Hut the, good olel Common 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 ticut, we imist espyess our profound 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 luce for the extraordinary care w hich has been taken to collect from the numer ous battlefields the remains of he dead soldiers and inter them in these beautiful National cemeteries, aud for the magnifi cent care and attention which is given to these cemeteries. Our comrades lie within these enclos ures, in peace aud quiet, where there can l e nothing to disturb their remains; and where they will remain undisturbed until that morning, vvhi-n the angel's bugle shall souud the ivsurictiin march. Comrades our work is dot ft, the dtsire of our hearts has I een consummated, this monument of enduring granite now marks the place where our comiades of thirty years ago sleep that s'eep which soon' r or later comes upon all uieo. You audi are still spared, but as the years goby one after another will fall by the way Let us theD, while we have life, so live that our example may be profitable to those about us. Let us so live, that when finally, we are mustered out of the ranks of the living, it may be said of us, as it has been said of our comrades whom we leave behind us in this peaceful ceme tery: v ell done, good and laithfti sei vant." A Card. Nkw Berxe, N. C, Nov. 15, '91. 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 the n they could not have believed it. Now that it is past, it is a revelation as beauti ful as it is wonderfiil, and one that will eivycil in their memories to the end of life, Very respectfully. A Union Vktkkan. II olio well Simmons.

Upham, President of the 15th Veterans Association them made introductory re marks. Ho was followed by Capt. M. A. Buttricks, 13 C. V., who made the opening address and then came the reading of the original poem, "The Blue and the GrevJ' by the author, Mr. R.

'Tis of Thee.1' Then the benediction "wag pro nounced by Iiev. T. M. N. George, nctor of the Episcopal church. There was a lavish supply of fVi'al tributes trom tne ladies o 1 hu 0i ' y wnich were presgnteel on iheir behalf by Mr. Rt bt. nanc ck. chairui in of the Commit tee on Flowers. Ttie two most conspic uous resigns in tbe colh'Ctiou were a la.rge cross of white at(d yellow chrvsantheuuis frqm Ilis lienor Mayor Wm.

Maj. Graham Daves responded ou le half of the C nfederate Veterans, and Con federate soldiers in general thanking in beh,alf of the dead as well as the living. The decorating was a giactful act and the scene an affecting one more than one on either side were moved almost to tears. This was the finale of the ex'.-rcisis. All then dispersed to their places of abode. A gian I banquet with ad that hs qame implies aud attended by over a hundred, was held at the Chattawka at night. The speeches of the occasion were not simply a display of words they were of such a character as made the occassion an intel lectual as well as a bodily feast. This closed the pleasant intercourse of the day which w as greatly enjoyed by our people, and we believe, by tho visitors likewise. The majority of the visitors leave for their homes today leaving only pleasant memoues behind, and we hope carrying none but delightlul recollections with them. OI R RESIDKXT YANKEES. 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.

Our.Trenton correspondent sends news of the deal h of Mr. La Fayette Dillahunt, sheriff of Jones county at 'his home, Fri day morning Iftth, last, of hemorragic iever, aged 38 years. 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. .V. B. C. I.

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 nt. f 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.

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 ' adversaries. .;,. 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.
