It cainot ha bat exasperating to

Chairman Batler, in his official
capacity, is too keen a politician to
y be deceived by auporfieial matters,
yet two week before he election in
m printed intertiew in Washington
T ; City, he stated that Illinois, Michi-
gaa and Minnesota were safe, for
' j rBrymn, and that Ohio was trembling
in the balance, and in faTor of Bryan.

and bring Mr. Butler to the front.

NO TmS rOR MOURNING.
The attempt on the part of a num
ber of Democratic newspapers in
this State, to pretend to see bad
times ahead, on account of the suc
cess of the fusion ticket at the polls
on November 3rd, is decidedly pre
mature, and if there existed any act
ual basis-or predicting dire things
for North "Carolina 0"n account of
the, victory of Jadge Russell and his
followers, it is still more premature
to denounce them, now, several
months before they take control of
the State Government.
Frrx a political stand point u is
a decidedly poor policy to assume so
far in advance ttiat Republican-Populist
control means serious things
for this State, and from a business
point of view it is very stupid.
The fact is that most of these
newspapers contended before t:.

MEANS CLOSER RELATIONSHIP
The settlement of the Venezuelan
controversy, a matter which at one
time eeemed to threaten the peace
of the two gteatest nations of the
world, brings with it not merely the
solution of a troublesome interna
tional question, but will also bring
together more closely tho two na
The most important point estab
lished is that the intervention of
the United States was justifiable in
this case, which brings out our posi
tion as to the right of maintaining,
and enforcing the Monroe Doctrine.
And th i3 maintenance of our
claims, the right to interfere when
the territorial integrity of an Amer
ican government ii threatened,
places this countryin a much stronger
position to protest against further
aggressions against American gov
ernments, and make any claimant
leave the matter to arbitration, in
stead of such a claimant forcing his
own case by arms.
But however much the credit may
bo due to the course pursued by this
government in securing a set'lemeo!
of the Venezuelan question, it is a
matter of congratulation that it
has been settled, peacefully, and
that in the peaceful solution of this
matter, the two great nations are
certain to be drawn closer to
gether, and bound more firmly in a
a relationship which English speak
ing people c.n only enjoy.
Americans must especially feel
grateful and proud over this success
ful arbitration, and both nations
cannot lut feel a higher regard and
greater respeel for each other in the
THE MEETING Or THE SYNOD.
The meeting of the Presbyterian
Syuod of North Carolina, which
held its Sod annual session in this
uity, last week, was a most import
ant gathering of this church, and
it was also a meeting that wvs pro
ductive of much good in th.s com
munity In this, as in all gatherings which
are held in this city, the people of
New Berne, regardless of denomina
tional lines, have borne themselves
in a most ereuitatue manner and
shown that they possessed the hos
pitality and liberality which the
people of this city have ever had the
reputatiou for possessing.
It was no mere word praise which
the Synod spoke in its resolution,
thanking the citizens of New Berne
for their open Hospitalities aud en
tertainment of the members visiting
here, but it was most sincere, and
was echoed from every heart of
those who came here as strangers and
visitors, but who left here as friends
and brethren of the entire commu
nity. Visiting membe;s of the Synod
who came from the western portion
of the State, who before they start
el were fearful of making the trip
on account of the distance, were en
thusiastic in their praise of New
Berne when they left, and were
eager to come here again.
New Berne, on her side, must say
that the Presbyterian Syuod has
been of good service in many ways
to her people, and there is today a
better fee-hug on all sices in this
city: tiie people of all the churches

issemblage llowed on, and as every
man held an opinion of his own 1
which he felt in duty bound to com
municate to his neighbor, it was
easy for a bystander to see that there
was bv no means a general consen
sus of opinion as to what would be
the action of the bank directors.
The only people wiio seemed
calmly unconscious that anything
of interest was expected were those
in the Consols market, who, above
dl others, would feel the effect of
any change, aud they acted their
part very well.
Every one is getting tired of wait
ire, and even the small diversions
of throwing pieces of paper at each
other, and such like means of whil
ing away the time, begin to pa'l. It
is 1 :l.r, o'clock, and still no signs
of the expected broker who makes
the announcement, lie is a member
of the firm who are brokers to the
Government, and has performed
this otVice for a considerable time,
succeeding to it in the place of his
father. At length he comes! There
is no mistaking the final, "Sh!"' and
as he mounts the seat there is not a
i sound to be heard. II is first words
are barely audible to any but those
in the front rank, but he raises his!
hand to bis mouth and shouts for ,
the most important part of his dc-
claration. " Bank rate is four
per cent!'' Then he gets down,
and there is no need for the fellows
who occupy the prominent positions
to hold up four fingers because the
shout is taken up and carried round
and round the House. A mad
scramble to the telegraph office by
the clerks, a rush to their respective
markets by the jobbers, and a vast
amount of noise. Then as the brok
ers walk round and ask, "How are
things with you?' they are told
with half-sheepish shame, "Oh,
hardly any change. Just a sixteenth
or so off." Verily a small result to
compensate for the loss of time and
stoppage of business ! B it then it is
almost tho only excitement left to
the Stock Exchange nowadays.

Hundreds of Kleptomaniacs.
Dr. Kobert SalTord Newton, the
medico legal expert, who was pres
ent ir, Clerkenwell court in London
when Mrs. Castle was first arraigned
for shoplifting, gave an interesting
interview regarding the case of the
S.m Francisco woman and so-eai!:d
eptomamacs m genera
j ton lias made a special study of t he
subject, anil as he was allowed mm-
suai privileges by tne couanu aru
to become thoroughly conversant
with the Castle case. While Dr.
Newton believes that the penalty in
Mrs. Castle's case was unnecessarily
severe, he does not believe that the
fact that a person is a kleptomaniac
should exempt him from legal pun
ishment. 'The Scotland yard authorities,"
said Dr. Newton, "have a list of bOO
kleptomaniacs living in London.
All of them belong to wealthy fam
ilies. The families have notified the
detectives: the k'eptomauiacs have
not revealed their secrets.

X-Rays and a Ruby.
Elizabeth Banks, a journalistic
writer in England, took her pocket
book" to be photographed under the
X-rav process, in order to see wheth
er the picture would reveal the pres
ence of the coins within it. This
it did, and as she was counting the
disks shown through the leather,
she perceived a small black point of
familiar outlines. Then she ex
claimed: "I have found my ruby!"
Opening the p-.-cketbouk, she search
ed in tile .-'pace indicated by the
Ol.u-k point on the photograph, and
ihere. tucked in between two folds
of K-athe-r. she discovered a small
ruby which she had lost some time
before ami could nowhere find. Ii
had slipped Irom a ring wlncli sne

taking something from the pocket
book, and bad glided in between
two thicknesses of leather. There
its presence was altogether unsus

until after the pocketbook was worn
out and discarded if this extraordi

From private information wele.irn
some interesting details about the

British arms, was manned by natives
who were evidently unacquainted

snip. mey openea ure wnn tne

coming or speeding the parting
guest. At first the British ilagshio
took no liotiee of this performance.
One ball hit an Italian ves-i 1. which
promptly slipped its cable and
moved out of range. When the Brit
ish admiral understood that the
Glasgow, only -00 yards off, was
tiring at him, he signaled that she
had better desist. The saluting guns
pausi'd a while, the skipper of the
Glasgow trying to decipher the sig

Summoned to strike their Hag, the
Arabs had not the least idea what
this meant, and a crew of bluejick
ets bad to make it plain by hoisting
the union jack on the defiant steam

"I ii-i kf in je didn't come across any
moit: that was new an Martini than I
pome of the rest cf us," replied the old
gentleman in a blase (one of toh ration.
''I know of one thing thet ye didn't tee,
fur mother says she had her yo c.n ye
all the time. He-v ye pot any money
"Two dollar an sixty cents," was
tho f elf satisfied response1.
"Then ye didn't see whut Tru talkin
about. Ye run over to the-t store an
buy f! cents' wuth of Kuplish walnuts
an I'll show it to ye. I'll be over whnr
mother an Zeb is, 'causo it'll interest
thf-ni too. "
When the hired man ramn back from
his errand, the old gentleman was saying
to his wife: "I was out fur experience,
an ye can't pit experience without its
costin a leetle soiuethin. I learnt a new
panic, an I want Zeb an the hired man
tor know about it, so's tr-r put 'em c.n
their guard apain the wickedness of this
here world. All yo need is some walnut
shells an a paper wad. "
The members of his household fol
lowed him to the window ledge, and,
after a ft-w preliminary passes to loosen
up Ins muscles for feats of legerdemain,
he paused to remark:
"Now, ye'll umlerstaii, of course,
thet this here ain't i:o Ir-ssou in gam
blin. I jc-s' wantcr show ye how it's
done. When yo go (er town, ye'll
know jes' rz much about it (z them
sharpers does an bo on yer guard. It's a
game whur the man ez does the guessiu
ain't-geit no show whutsoniover. "
Ho manipulated tho shells nud the
paper wad in imitation e.-f tho man he
had seen at tho fair, and stepping back
"Course, I don't want yo tor bet
nothin, 'causo that 'ud bo jes' like rob
bin yer. Uut it won't do no harm fnr
yo tcr mako a guess, to's ter show ye
how tho dag-on-cel swindle operates. "
"I'll bet ye my new knife agin that
buckhoru handled cue of yr-r'n thc-t I
kin pick out tho shell e z he z tho paper
wad under it," remarked tho hired man.
"I wouldn't le t yo do it. Don't yo
ondorstau' thet this is a skin game I'm
a-showiu ye?' '
"I eiein't keer nothin 'bout that. I've)
got that ther paper wad located an yo
da'sn't bet thet I ain't. "
"I da'sn't, da'sn't I? I don't like tcr
take no advantage of ye, but ye're a
man groweel an responsible fur yer own
acks. Put up yer knife. "
The stakes wero laid on tho window
ledge, arid tho hired man promptly se
lected the right shell.
"By hokey," exclaimed tho old gen
tleman, "ye'vo guessed itl It roust 'a'
been by a miracle. "
He tried it again, end this time not
only the hired man, but Zeb and tho old
lady, risked all their available, small
change. Again (ho amateur thimble
rigger juggled the shells, and with the
"Better own up an quit, father,"
"I won't elo nothin of the kind, " waa
In tho course of timo he issued
promissory notes for a saddle blanket, a
pair of boots, six pearl collar buttons, a
calico dress, a pair of bearskin gloves,
seven plugs of tobacco and $-1.50. But
he was not discouraged. Ho was pre
paring for another shulHeof the walnut
shells, when his wife exclaimed:
"Elihu, ain't it pur;y near train
Thcro -was a sirnnHaneoua rush for
tho gate. Their train had been gone
nearly 15 minutes.
"Waal, " said the old gentleman, "it's

j "Yes, "said Zeb, "it all come ter pass

" Whirr's the hired man?"
' "He told me thet, cz it would be a good
while tell the train went, lie reckoned
he'd take some of his winuin's an paint
