NO MOM BONDS WANTED.
Whatever the success of the latest
bond issue has ben in provng the
stability of tliia country's tiuances.
such a teat must never be brought
to bear again opou the people, nor
for that matter must it be necessary
for the Government to issue bonds
either aa a popular loan er to be
sold to syndicates.
This Government must go out of
the bond issuing and banking busi
ness, and get down to a practical
way of conducting iw affairs by
providing revenae-s which shall
equal it expenditure.
It ia well euoogh for the members
of C'ongree! to rare and denouuee
President Cleveland for saddling an
sdditional debt npon the country,
bnt the faulr ii not his. and the
remedy lies in the hand of those
wbo are free to denounce his
method of securing funds to meet
current gorenimental expenses.
This country is ouying abroad at
present more than it sells abroad,
considerably more; added to this the
fact that the country revenue do
noi equal its expenditures, and the
reason for bond issues Incomes
The remedy is very plain. Pro
vide a sufficient revenue and bond
iasnes will be matters of the past.
The people demand some sensible
and business like action on the part
of their representatives in Congress
in providing revenues for the gov
ernment, ami a cessation oi the
present daily arraignment and de
nunciation of matters of triml im
portance. with no legislation for the
conntrr interest or wellfare.
The people want no more bond
issue, and they demand legislation
which shall prevent them.
ONI TBXJta PSJBTTT CURTAIN
One thin? w hich every voter in
l'orth Carolina, to whatever politi
caJ party he may belong, can rest
assured of is that the Ivenu Oilcans
in this State will not be found de
claring themselves positively en any
National political issue, silver or the
tariff, before the National Conven
tion meet and Jeclaree its platform.
It ia tho worst of idle twaddle for
the new manors to declare that the
Republican? will give up to-the Pop
ulist demand for free coinage in
order to secure their co-operation to
carry this State again uext Novem
ber, for the llenublicun partv has
too perfect an organization and confi
dence in its National leaders to act
without their knowledge or consent.
It reads very prettily in the
newspapers that certain Republicans
iu such and such a Suite have per
mitted the local members to set up
lit-tle political shrines at which the
ranting populist or the weary dem
ocrat may worship and find every
thing to suit t heir different taste,
but the Republican party is au "art
ful dodger, and iU tricks which are
played, are usually not in vain.
Of conree it may make interesting
readiDg to one class to see in print
that the Republicans of this State
are in perfect agreement with the
Populi.U ou silver and also prove
equally pleasing to another elas to
see it positively staled mat t De two
are wide apart ou the silver issue.
The wise course, whatever the local
interest may be, is to watch and see
what the National Republican party
will Jo, for ninety nine chances out
of one hundred, what it says, "wwl
go", and Republicans throughout
the country will endorse its action
and follow its lead.

RAISING MEAT AT A PROFIT.
A Farmer Who Raised 3.00O Pound
at a Not Cost of Two Cents Per
Ponnd, Tells How it Can be Done
The past year has been a profita
ble one to most farmers, and it is
gratifying to note the decadence ot
the popular "calamity howler.''
That the agricultural classes are in
better spirits is due to the fact (14
that more supplies than usual have,
been raised at home the past, year
and the necessity of sending to the

So long as these conditions obtain
thero will be but little cause for
complaint aud still less for de-pen-
denco upon the merchant for broad
and meat. Like the five cent cot
ton, the five cent pork lias raised a
hue of complaint and many claim
that it cannot be raised for that.
But it can, and still leave a neat
cash balance iu favor of the pro
ducer. This I've verified the pst
year, having produced 3.000 pounds
of pork that cost me only two cents
