It is a liW
tocome oat itk aoirplanatioq on
the celebrata&XnV&ton letter,
Nv and it would indeed b singular if
lbs Caitcatian could not explain
Tlltit4etter to Senator Butler's satis
faction. According to the Caucasian it
was ' policy' which " dicuted the
auppressian of this letter, as its com
ing before the Populist party at the
time it was written, would have
caused a division of tho silver forces
and Mr. Bryan's defeat would have
been laid at the door of the Popu
lists The Caucasian in satisfactorily
proving that Senator Bntler was
right in keeping this letter, al
though it does not account for its
long passage from Watsoa and But
ler, closes with the following:
"We think, however, that Watson
Was right in predicting that Bryan
weald be defeated on account of the
refusal, of Sewall, the Democratic
vice-Presidential nominee, to retire
from tho ticket, and we fuither be

elected. This stupid and brutal
mistake on the part of th Demo

haT a nuDiVr of important measures
to come before it. m.J thee meas

the t m x era.

which h tc in theru a ppropriatinns

to every one.
Some of the measures which are
likely to come up during thia se.s-

Among nnfiniahed business, is me

The joint resolution proposing nn
amendment to the Constitution,
providing for the election of Sena
tor by popular vote, is a specinl or
der, set for December 14th.
Other jecial orders are Senate
bills to prent the desecration of the
National flsg; House bill to prevent
the extermination of the fur bearing
rait of Alaska, and House bill to
reducw the cases m which the pen
alty of death may be inflicted.
It mast not be forgotteu that the
comprehensive bill, appropriating
1100,000,000 for defenses is still on
the calendar; also the bill authoriz
ing the Secretary of the Navy to
enlist additional men; a bill for t lie
establishment of a light nouse on
San Island in the Caribbean Sea,
hich is the property of the United
States, and the bill to construct a
drj doc tat Ky West.
The Dingley ill is also a most
important measure which will be
brongh up early in the session.
A cpmprebeusi ve meusuie which
involves the revision of the naviga
tion laira, it an important bill. Bills
for admission of New Mexico and
Arizona to Statehood will cause de
bate, as will the bill to establish a
uniform sratem of bankruptcy.
The proposition t'" refund the
Pacific Railroad debt, is a measure
are to cause debate.
Thia country's relations wMi
Hawaii will cause discussion when
the bill to facilitate the construction
of a cable between the Uuited
States and the Hawaiian Islands
Ttit. trtll directing the Interstate
Commerce Commission to prepare
a nuiform freivht classification, is
important to shippers. On the cnl
endar.are 31 JIouso add 22 Senate
pension bills which will bo put
through at an early day. The Nicar
raguan Canal bill will not likeU
come op at this session
Taken altogether there is plenty
of work for Congress to do, and the
effect of the work done is likely to
hate a moat important bearing upon
thb trade and business of the coun
try during the next few months

A" gratifying f .-ct of our tim-s is
the increased attention given by
educators to the improvement of
the physical life of women. The
amelioratien of V hoi r intellectual
life gained acceptance over fifty
jears-ago. as is shown by the mul
tiplication of schools and colleges
for girls. The culture thus gained
has opened new careers. Women
nowadays engage in a multit.de of
occupations unknown to their
granndmothei s, or even to their
mothers. Ech step of intellectual
progress has widened the feminine
horizon and inyea.,cd womau'd in
terests in the world's work. Art,
science, literature, business every
sphere of human endeavor r.oir en
lists woman's energies. She has not
been diverted experience shows, by
mental development from the cul
tivation ot the domestic irtucs,
but has utilized her new training
fT the enrichment and improve
ment of the home life. She has
become, in fact, a more efficient
protector of the home. As a bread

Wisdom, !tro:igth, effectiveness all
the qualities of the sound mind
depend, it is perceived, for their

her b.-.dy to fall into weakness. Such
are her relations to the race that
her inetliciency, resulting from pliv
sical deterioration, repeats itself in
the broken lives of those who are
dependent upni her. It is not given

It is gratifying to our natioi ai
pride to know that American ma
chinery was employed in the recent
opening of the Danube river at in
famous point in its winding care' r
known as the "Iron Gate." At. ti i-
ter lines of three conn
tries, Roumania.Servia and Austria
Hungary, converge and the po. ,t
hns received the name of the Ia n
(iate from the fact that vessels have
never been able to pass it until tic
present. In order to deepen the
river's channel at this point it has
been necessary to blat the rock
over which its current has ripplit-d
since the beginning of time. In
boring holes in the rock for the le
ception of the blasting powder
American drills were used on ac
count of the superior merit which
they possessed. The inventive gen
ius of tho American is recognized
throughout, the glob and no coun
try surpasses Atrerica in the me
chanical devices which she has pro
duced dining the present century.

A Bclgriau Brigar d.
A man named Witto Helens, chief
of an audacious band of brigands
who have infesfed the outskirts of
Mali nes for some time past, has
been captured. Thi.s man and his
band have 1,,-en a terror to the
whole country-side, committing
their crime in broad daylight un
der threats of murder or of burning
lown the habila, ions of those they
attacked. The list of crimes against
Helens includes several cases of mur
der and attempted murder, as well
as over ."0o charges of robbery.
It is stated chat in the communes
of Wavi e-Sainte-Catherine, Wavre-
Notre-Dame and Putte-et Bonhay
len there are not 10 of the inhabi
tants who have not been victims of
this map audi his band. Early in
this year a gendarme who attempted
to anest Helens was shot dead bv
him. He has had a number ol
hair-breadth escapes from arrest.
Recently he had publicly threatened
to murder t tie mirgomaster ol
Wavre-Sainte-Catheriue and to
burn down his house, and inconse
quence this functionary had to place
himself under police protection.
Recently Helcn3 went to an inn at
Wavre-Sainte-Catherine, and, in
formation being given to the police,
they surrounded the house anl
eventually overcame him. A brothei
of Helens was recently condemned
to penal servitude for life for simi
lar crimes. Pittsburg Dispatch.
THE INJUNCTION CASE.
Heard Be lore Judge Knblnton Ya
lenlny. Both Kitlrs Ably Bvpre
neiilel. The injunction case of the A. &
N. C. It. H. which was continued
from Halifax on the 24th ult. wat
heard here yesterday, before Judge
W. S. O. P". Robinson.
There wns a fairly large attend
ance in the court house during the
day, of persons who listened with
interest to the discussion of t In
case. The defendants were represent
ed by dudge W. H. Allen, R. 0.
Burton, W. W. Clark and P. M.
The plaintiffs were represented by
Judge J. C. McaRao. M. DeW. Ste
venson, T. H. Purnell, C. R.
Thomas, Seymour Hancock, W. E.
Clarke and H. W. Williamson.
Mr. D. E. Perry, representing
Lenoir County, was present and
asked that Lenoir county be madi
party plaintiff to the action, to
which objection was raised by de
fendants. An order from the county
commissioners of Lenoir, was offered
by Mr. Perry which gave him tht
proxy of that county to cast its yote.
After some discussion Lenoir county
was permitted to become party
plaintiff in the case, but Mr.
Perry was not allowed to file any
iNotice to make the Goldsboro &
Morehead Railroad Co., party de
fendant to the suit was made, and
after discusion, permitted. Supple
mentary complaints and affidavit
were read and allowed.
Judge W. 11. Allen came in and
made appearance for the G. & M.
R. R. Company.
W.W. Clark, for defendants,epen
ed the case, very clearly presenting
his side, making the following lega
propositions, which he supported by
1st. The A. & N. C. R. R Company
has the power under its Charter to leas
2nd. The G-ddsboro S- Morehead It. R
Company has the power under its Charter
to take a lease from the A. & N. C. B. R
3rd. But if a corporation formed undei
llie General Law has no power to take
lease, yet if a corporation having tnd leg
islative power to lease its property doe
lease its property to such corporator
no ODe but. tlie State or a stockholder ii
the corporation which is acting ultra
i ires can enjoin the execution of the lease.
4th. The corporate existence of tin
the Goldsboro A: Morehead R. R. Com
pauy Cannot be questioned ia this action.
M. DeW. Stevenson, for plaintiffs
followed, Mr. Stevenson firBt at
empted to prove that this case was
not an analogous one with that oJ
the State vs R. & D. Railroad, de
cided by the Supreme Court o)
North Carolina, aud at close of hit
-peech contended that the present
case should be held in Btatu quo
until some higher Court should de
cide upon it.
T. H. Purnell, for plaintiffs.
ade an attack upon the Goldsboro
& Morehead R. R. Co. which he
lubbed the "Gall & Mischief R. It.
Co. Ue asked for continuation of
l e injunction citing authorities,
aiutaining that, if continued it
work no injury to any one.
P. M. Pearsall, for defendants,
presented five propositions for con
sideration, which were replies to
ints brought up by plaintiffs.
C. R. Thomas and W. R. Allen,
r plaiutitls and defendants, re
ectivelv,6noke for their sides.
Judge J. C, MacRae, for plaintiff,
made an able presentation. He ar-
ed that previous decisions of the
preme court had been controver
ted, claiming that no wrong would
be doue if in this case it Bhould be
decided against a previous decision
of the Supreme court of this State.
It was not necessary that an opin
ion should be expressed on this
caie, but the case might be let to
up to the Supreme Court.
R. O. Burton, for defendants,
made closing speech.
Judge Robinson will probably

Now that tha date of our next
Pair has been definitely decided
ipon let ii9 unite our energies in
making this the 'beat of all our
former Expositions." Nothing has
;ver inven to New Berne a greater
.imminence than this Fair. It ha
oeen the means of attracting hun
Ireds of Northern visitors to our
jity, and its good effects have beeD
felt by all classes of our citizens.
From an humble beginning it hai
rovn to such a magnitude that it
is now universally looked upon at
nc of the most prominent and at
'.ractive Fairs of the South.
We doubt if there is one of its
dnd to bo found in the whole conn
ry. livery branch of industrial
progress is represented. The mos
omplete Exhibits of Fish, Game
mil Oysters, and a race program
vhieh alone offers $4,000.00 in pur
;es. With handsome building3 and
grounds conveniently located, an
excellent track, liberal premiums in
ill departments and the latest and
nost novel outdoor attractions thf
ioming Exhibition of our Fail
diould be the greatest in its history,
vet us get to work to make it bo.
Let each and every one who can do
iny thing atall to further the interest
rf the Fair in any way, shape, man
ler, or form, avail themselves ol
such an advantage thus helping oui
greatest triumph in Fairs.
