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 years ago. 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 class, 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 CRIME. Outside of all sentiment and political extravagance, it Is amusing to note how fallen from Its high estate, Is the Crime of '73. 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 cent. 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 paper. 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 State's finances. 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 so. 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 plete failure. 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. F. J. CHENEY & CO., Toledo, O.

"L1BDB LOST. Penitentiary Directors fleet and Decide Not U Rebuild Dykes. Scene at State Farss. Weald Be Said Cheap. Mr. Drewryte Wed. A Heavy Ceirt Docket. 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 worked off on it John C.
