MODERATE MEANS AND HIGH
Each year seems to show more and
more, that the man of moderate means
cannot accept a high public office, State
or National, at the hands of the peo
ple. The salaries paid Congressmen, Sena
tors, Governors, Cabinet Officers, and
even the President of the country, once
looked large and more than amply suffi
cient for every personal want, with
something to be saved from a term of
office. But that was a score or mors
Today, these salaries are trifling in
amount, compared with the official and
social obligations that must be met,
particularly the latter.
On this subject the Boston Post says:
"According to the gossip of Washing
ton Secretary Gage has spent $100,000
over and above his salary of $8,000 a
year as Secretary of the Treasury upon
living expenses while holding that office
According to the same authority Attorney-General
Knox, the 'trust lawyer,'
began his service by buying a house for
$140,000 and bringing on a team of
horses that cost $12,000. It is now tat
tled that Mrs Shaw, whose husband has
been called to take the place left vacant
by Secretary Gage, gays: 'Mr. Shaw told
me ;Senator Allison assured hira we
would be able to go out in society all
that is necessary on $5,000 a year more
than his salary, and I guess we can
stand that for a few years.' Governor
Shaw is credited with a fortune of about
$1,5000,000 gained in legitimate busi
ness." According to this it must be the mil
lionaire who can accept a cabinet posi
tion, hence the President's advisers must
be drawn exclusively from the rich
It is Indeed unfortunate that the man
with ability and address, but without
ample fortunate, is practically barred
from important positions.
Even in North Carolina, there are
men who would hardly accept public of
fice, because the position means giving
up a good business or fine profession
which is more than sufficient for their
present social obligations, while the pay
from the public office would not be
enough to meet their new social require
ments. There Is no question but that both
bta!6 and Nation are requiring too much
"social" measure, as a requirement for
Its public men, and making less the
qualifications of ability and personal address.
THIRTY YEARS AFTER THE
Outside of all sentiment and political
extravagance, it Is amusing to note how
fallen from Its high estate, Is the Crime
As an article which has done great
service In political campaigns, in this
country, year. after year, the Crime of
'73, has become sacred to man; , and to
think that it must be put away, to do no
further service, to be absent from the
stump and the banquet hall, to be no
longer sung in joyous chorus In parades,
Is really saddening.
v United States ; Treasurer Roberts In
his annual statement of the world's
money supply, presents some facts,
"""which show the Improbability of any
double monetary standard for this coun
try, in the near or distant future.
The large increase In coin, and the
small increase in paper money, is not v
' ble, the uncovered paper amounting to
about 1700,000,000, or about 80 per
The total stock of money on January
v . 1st 1901, was 111,800,000.000. of which
18,700,000,000 was in coin, only about
8 per cent ot the balance being in
In contrast to this showing is that of
1878, when nearly 60 percent of the
, world's money was in uncovered paper.
The change for the better in the mon
etary situation since 1878," makes the
alleged crime of that year in this coun
try sppear ridiculous, although it has
done good political service for many
; years. . , . j ' ' "
THE STATE'S WHITE ELEPHANT.
The showing of the losses- mads by
last week's flood la the Roanoke rim
and the breaking of the dykes on the
Bute's farm, with loss of property and
crops, is another serious matter for the
Last May the freshet in the Roanoke
caused a loss to the State farm ot some
$25,000. and this added to last week's
j loss with labor of repairing the damage
done in May, will amount to $70,000.
While these flood losses are severe,
the report that the lowlands, some 2,500
acres, are to be abandoned, means an ad
ditional loss In the future.
This entire fsrm business of th State
with the employment of convicts to cul
tivate and raise crops, seems to prove It
self a burden for the State, and conse
quently a financial load to be put npon
the tax payer.
This Halifax farm purchase In the be
ginning was reported as being1 a "job,"
and the present exhibit makes It appear
This farm bought by the State for $60,
000, the purchase price was further
added to by expenditures of $50,000.
And now it is said the directors would
gladly accept $50,000 for the farm, thus
showing how false was the story that
the farm would easily bring $100,000, al
though sold to the State for $60,000.
It may prove a good thing for the
State to abandon its lowlands, but it
might prove still better to go out of the
farming business, and get what it can L
for the entire farm
Judging from all accounts the State
has a white elephant on its hands, in the
Halifax farm, and one which it might be
a good thing to get rid of at once, for as
a revenue producer it seems to be a com
Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they eannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
there Is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an Inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube gets In
flamed you have a rumbling sound or im
perfect bearing, and when it is entirely
closed deafness is the result, and unless
the inflammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by ca
tarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed
condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars, free.

Prof. Roxa Tyler, of Chicago, Vice

speaking of Chamberlain's Cough Reme

this winter which threatened to run in

but I teemed to grow worse and the
medicine upset my stomach. A friend
advised me to try Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy and I found it was pleasant to
take and it relieved me at once. I am now
entirely recovered, saved a doctor's bill,
time and suffering, and I will never be
without this splendid medicine again.'

Penitentiary Directors fleet and
Decide Not U Rebuild Dykes.
Scene at State Farss. Weald Be
Said Cheap. Mr. Drewryte
Wed. A Heavy Ceirt
IUlsigh, Jan. 7 The penitentiary
dlreco rate met at the State farm yester
day In special sesdoa, to consider the
loss by last week's flood la the Roanoke
and the breaking of the dykes. It
found that the dykes were as badly
broken as they were by the Msy freshet;
that the loss to the crops is only almost
$1,000, while last May It was about $23
000.; that the labor of 100 convicts for
the past S or 4 months In rebuilding the
dyke was all wasted; that notwithstand
ing all these losses the directors express
the belief that the penitentiary will
meet its expenses during the fiscal year
which will end April 1. The dykes will
not be rebuilt. The sentiment of the
board Is to cultivate the uplands. This
will be the course pursued. There are
now two camps of convicts, of 250 on
this farm. They will be consolidated in
one camp. It will require all this force
to cultivate the 4,000 acres of uplands,
Theie are 2,000 acres subject to overflow
at any time and 1,000 acres subject to
overflow only at extreme high water.
The scene presented by the farm
since the breaking of the dykes is one of
devastation. Hundreds of acres are
four feet deep in sand. In other places
great holes are torn In the earth. The
largest trees are torn up and felled here
and there in wild confusion. An Idea of
the size of the dyke and of the labor and
cost may be had from the statement that
it Is 50 feet wide at the bottom, 12 feet
wide at the top and is 36 feet In height.
The washout is '00 feet in length. The
total length of the dyke is about three
miles. The .total loss to crops and labor
by the May flood and that of last week
is $70,000 and this, the directors assure
your correspondent, Is a very low esti
mate. If the farm could be sold for 50,-
COD (the State paid $60,000 and spent
$30,000 on it) it would be disposed of in
s minute. So says one of the directors.
When the State bought the farm inter
ested personages made the assertion that
it would bring $100,000, and the late di
rectorate kepi up thU illusion. The new
directorate sees what a fake the state
ment was and would be glad to sell at
half that figure. The State got a gold
brick, it appears. It is not the first one
