Daui I L. Russell came in this morn
ing, lie was not in very h'jjh spirits and
talked little. He was asked the
pointed question, ''Will the Mc
Kinley electoral ticket be taken down
in this Slate?" He taid "all the taking
down will have to be done by our com
milieu ' hum ihe pops. He decL'Ad to
answers to any facts of his own coming
down. Loge Harris and Bailey of North
Carolina were v ith him. Harris told
Russell in answer to his question regard
ing the notices of the Republican stale
corumittee meeting that the notices had
been sict out, that it met here on the
11th, instant. Russell was asked hU
opinion regarding the Democratic execu
tive committee resolutions in favor of
fusion adopted Thuisday uight. He replied
nothing was wanting save that the com
mittee ought to have attached some
"exhibits.' there being editorials denoun
cing fusion as venal and involving morai
turpitude. The Populist party (Miss
Populism, suggested Harris) has jilted the
Democrats lor all their courting, But
she is a mighty pretty girl all the same.

W. A. Guthrie arrived here today.
There has been a great deal of stir for a
wi ek past regarding his alleged attack on
the Baptists. Othor Wilson is champion
ing Guthrie stoutly. Sen. Butler's declara"
tion, 'The statement which Guthrie
made at tne alumni banquet was sub
stantially what I said," shows that the
Senator is also in Hue of battle lor his
devoted friend Guthrie.
It is almost as well to recognize the
fact, sayDemocratic leaders, that noth

that it is agreed on and that the masses,
Democrats and Populists, demand it.

As Claude Dockery said the other day,

The Republicans seem dazed, no matter

Populists have a perlect organization.
Senator Butltr always finds out what his
people want and then he acts. Thus he
mav be said to lead without leading. It
is perhips the secret of his power as
autocrat of North Carolina politics.
Populists are saying openly that they
will Dever again vote for fusion with the
Republicans. Ex -State Senator, A. E.
Green, of this county so says. It is as
serted that Populists are now saying that
county fusion is by no means settled. Up

without taking a pilot.
The captain had a tale to relate which
suited his chrracter well, for Capt. Pat

rough old sea dog and works hard to sus

His adventures began two days after
leaving Gibara, on July 10th, while off

The schooner was making good time,

meaning, instead tieiel on his course, mn-1
ning a little more free to fill his sails.
A recognition of this maneuvre was a
flash and a cloud of smoke from the Span
iard, and a shell passed over the quarter
deck oj the schooner, mast high, from
port to starboard, and fell into the sea.
This was a signal that even Capt. Pat
rick would understand. The American
ensign was made fast to the halliards, and
quickly run up, nnd with more sail press
ed on, the schooner made away as last as
possible the Spaniard allowing her to go
without again tiring. The captain did
not find out the name of the gunboat, but
expects to make au official report.
This adventure seems to have put the
captain in a belligerent frame of mind,
aud ready to tackle the first thing that
hove in sight. The first thing happened
to be the quarantine regulations at South
port. As the schooner was from a southern
r.ort, the quarantine officer, Dr. Eager
remanded her to Cape Charles, the cap
lain preferring that place to Sapelo. How
ever, as soon as the schooner arrived at
quarantine, the captiiu begin to protest
against a oiug to sea, making many excuses
that he had no ballast, that he was nearly
out of water, and no provisions, but when
offered supplies and hillast, he refused
By the second day, when Dr. Eager
went alongside to find out if he needed
anything, Capt. Patrick had worked him
selt in shape ready to tackle something or
He went off' into a long harangue in
which he annouueed from the deck of his
vessel that he would run quarantine,
would go ashore himself for his aiail nnd
on other matters, ending up by demand
ing to know what anybody would do
about it: "Your landiDg will first be re
sisted and then your vessel will be tied
up,'' announced Dr. Eagar.
The revenue cutter was away and the
captain felt quite brave, but a little later
and a fresh incident had a cooling effect
on his temper. The quarantine boat, soon
had occasion to go alongside the schooner
again, and when Cant. Patrick looked
over the side, his eyes iell upon four
Springfield rifles lying across the boat
seats, with a supply of ammunition ar
ranged by them. All was civility now,
but as threats of running quarantine had
been made, a very serious matter, watch
was kept on shore during bo.h day and
On Friday the schooner left port, pro
bably on the look out for. new adventures,
and will make trouble if it cannot be
found otherwise. Southport Leader.
