plactU, with a teo-irwh -no at Fort H-iot-''
ilton Dot mounted; the carriages fr this
one Aot being in nitdinets, o that the
gaa might as well not be there.
i. Senator Squire said that the committer
- woald make a report before the close ot
' the aeaeioi. He was sorry to find such
poor state of affairs, but tbe truth must
be lokL Teoty-even porta would be
actually defcnseles io-caae of ao attack by
an eoun j, he 'aaid, a od 10,000,000,000
worthofdeBtractible property would be
at the merry of the attacking party,
$4,000,000,000 worth of tbe property be
' lo represented in New York alone.
". Senator Squire said: '-The committee
, was instructed and directed to visit and
examine tbe harbor at-leuse-8 of the city of
.' New- York, il Doing understood and
knowo that the port ol New York wis
better protected than any other of tbe 27
ports from Portland, Ma, down.
We tailed to Sandy hook, where we
, examined In deail tbe works ot defense
lor this harbor. We just found two of

opinion ot those prtsent, us tar as I could
discover, was that tberf ought to be only
one convention, and that by the time the
convention mit all the party would say
that one convention was the proper
thins. I never beard tlie electoral ticket
mentioned and I heard no reference to any
candidate. There was i:o vote, no
"countini; ol noses," on the question of
the convention, but it was the opiniou
that since it seemed assured that the
Chicago convention will declare for silver
and in line with the sentiment in this
! state, no question

will le raised. Our

the political parties, It was calculated
that there were 100,000 colored voters ami
about 20,000 or 25,000 whi'e Republi

will be only one State convention.

There was a good deal of political talk
during the gathering of prominent men at
Chapel Hill this week. The Julian S
Carr gubernatorial movemeat is declared
to jc growing. It is -said to be develop
ing in the east. Col. Carr is not a
candidate or an aspirant, but it may be
said that if the nomination is tendered
him he will not decline. He has many
elements ot strength and marked popu
larity. It can almost be said that he is
popularly regarded as the man to w hom
tlie nomination will po. There are sniiic
who say hi? is not strong moiigh as a

L ke most other Congresses upon the eve
of a Presidential election, this one ha left
undisposed of some of tbe most impor
tant bills which were lnjforc it. To
; deplore this would be simply a waste of
: time. It has always been so ami will
; continue to be w , until the average Con-
gressmau ceaes to be like tlie average
man more intent upon looking out for
his ow n interests than those of other peo
ple. For once at least the House has shown
itself to be in accoid with Pre-ident
Cleveland. By a vote of 14!) to 4( the
House sustained the President' veto of
the general deficiency bill. This bill was
vetoed because it contained an appropria
tion of more than a million dollars to pay
century-old French spoliation claims ami
another ot nearly 8175.000 for a doubtful
private claim. The House passed a new
Senate and kept in b tbe Senate con
ferees, and there are few members of the
House - who are not glad the bill was
vetoed. It is doubtlul whether one
twentieth of these spoliaticn claims tire
now in the hands of descendonts of the
original claimants. They have leeu most
ly bought up by speculators lor riducul
ously small amounts. An appropriation
to pay them was vetoed by President

President Cleveland intends doing some
thing startling in connection with the
relation of this government to the Cuban
revolutionists between uow auel the meet
ing of the Chicago convention. It appears
that the Republican Senators took some
such view of the Morgan spee.di, as
Senators Sherman ami Lodge took a
leading part in the shut-ting ot the Senate
doors while the speech was being made.
Notice that the fight for the distribution
of the regular appropriation bills among
tbe Senate committees, instead of having
them all acted upon by the committee on
appropriations, as at present, is to be
renewed at the next session of Congress

lution by Senator Proctor, of Vermont,
providing for the change
A New- York business man who has
just returned from a trip through the
great agricultural States, says the gran
aries are literally bursting with farm
products for which there is no local
demand, and which transportation
charges make it unprofitable to ship
to distant markets. "It is not to be
wondered at,'' he says, Wn the face of
such conditions that the agricultural peo
ple are in favor ol free silver. Tliey are
disgusted viih tbe pre-eut status, and are
willing to risk the silver cure." Eastern
people who never get away from home
seem surprised at the strength of tlie sil
ver caus1, but if they would take a trip as
far West as Omaha they would understand
the reasons that are bdiind the movement.'
Senator Warren, of Wyoming, is one of
those who doesn't fancy the idea of trying
to tell his constituents why Congress
adjourned without acting upon numerous
bills in which they are interested, and he
stiteel on '.he floor ot the S u ate, wben
the resolution for adjournment ws
offered, that he would rather sit for weeks
longer, u I even to lose, his vote in
November, than undertake to explain to
the people ol his state why tlie Senate
could not remain iu sessiou'and di-noscof

iu a minority a very small minority
and he must make those explanations as
