New Bern, N. C. Feb,
" .ot thA State news that
has been sent around told of the pros
pective doings of the, Republicans.
There were newspapers to be estab
lished, there was to be a turning over
new leaves, as to political conduct,
with no scramble for office, and a gen
eral reversal, so to speak, of political
doings, all of which was to induce re
cruits to flock to the party as one which
would be clean, attractive and progres
sive where good behavior would be rec
ognize 1, and where the voter who was
not hide bound might find a companion
ship of congenial spirits who could vote
for men and things instead of being
compelled to vote for nominees and
principbs of which they knew nothing
and cnred less.
The two newspapers have come, and
pretty decent ones they are, much
ahead of the men and their principles,
whom they are supposed to. represent
But all else in way of betterment has
gonerather never came, for the same
old, sentiment continues, to make the
Republican party of North Carolina a
narrow and bitted one, with a mem
bership just large enough in numbers
to fill the political offices and political
appointments that arethe portion of
he partly in this State.
And beyond this same old exchisive
ness, the court trials, the indictments
drawn against the most prominent Re
publicans, the more or lesp back
biting and blackguarding among the
factions in this this State, all this dis
gusts not only those who have no strong
Political tendencies, and who might be
induced to vote for Republicans, but
it also disgusts those who claim Re
publican affiliations, who usually vote
the ticket and who claim Republican
; It is not surprising that with all this
display and exhibit, that Republicanism
is less attractive in North Carolina
than ever, for those who have boasted
of its redeeming features, of its pros-
' pective elimination of every disturbing
eement and its stand for decency, are
themselves making a showing which
drives away even those who have been
Republicans, and keeps at a distance
any voter who might possibly think of
changing his party. It makes no dif
ference how ably Republican news
papers may bo edited, no. decent one
can pardon, or find excuse for such con
duct as is now going on among leading
Republicans In this State. In fact it
h hard to see why such a party needs
a newspaper, for it has nothing it can,
or wishes to explain in print, and its
actions and those of its leaden would
best be left in the dark, if possible.
FISH SCARCITY AND MOTOR BOATS
. It has been noted a number of times
in the local columns of the Journal, the
scarcity of fish in this market Word
cornea from Morehead City that the fish
market there is remarkably bare of
fish, and has been all the winter, much
to the injury of business in that place.
This does not mean that no fish are
caught, for there are always fish for
home consumption, but there has been
no fish for shipment, and this is a seri
ous matter for a place like Morehead
City, as well as New Bern," whose great
trade has always been sea food pro
ducts. . : .- . , '""
Inquiries have been made here and at
!' nehead City, by the Journal, as to
; rrnsons for this unusual fiah scarcity
1 v lJlo several have been given by
' .-'i-men, the one which seems to
-fit, iti that the many motor
, !'.! Uiil of power boats, which
ye.I in the waters of the
y lit I' (
and while the fish caught fox market
are very largely if not -altogether
taken by net and seine, yet it may be
quite possible that the power propelled
boats, all of them noisy, might cause
an alarm among the fish coming into
the sounds and rivers, and frighten
many fish back to the' ocean depths.
At present it is the motor boat, not
the sail boat, that brings the fish to
market, after having been at the fish
ing grounds gathering up ita cargo,
and every foot it goes there is noise in
the water, caused by these actively
propelled boats, and it may be no fish
erman's tale, that these boats are re
sponsible for the fish being scarce.
Accepting this to be true, the ques-
is, what of the fish supply for the fu
ture? Will the fish in the water be
come accustomed to the motor boat,
and so return to the rivers and sounds,
or must it be for the fishermen to take
to deep sea fishing? The question is
an interesting one and must be deter
mined one way or the other before many
seasons pass, and so settle the matter
of NeW Bern and Morehead City, being
sea food markets, specially in the mat
ter of fish. - .
FUTURE COTTON CROP SELLING
A HANDICAP. ' f
The leaders of the National and
State Cotton Growers Association in
their efforts to sustain the farmers in
holding their cotton, for higher prices,
or rather for fifteen cents, lose sight
of a most important factor, which
plays a leading part, if cotton, is to be
sustained and sold at any minimum
price in the future. ThU factor is the
future cotton selling of cotton farmers.
Since cotton has leached ten cents
and above, the price has been one
which has. satisfied the majority of
farmers, specially those who have
struggled in years past, and raised cot
ton to, be sold around six cents. There
fore with cotton selling at ten cents in
the winter months, or even above this
figure, a good many farmers have been
willing to enter into the sale of their
next prospective cotton crop at prices
about the same as might be prevailing
during the winter months, so that cot
ton buyers in some sections practically
controlled the entire cotton acreage for
the following season.
There is no question but that in the
past two years, many farmers have
done well by thus selling their future
crop of cotton, for when they were
prepared to market their cotton, the
then prevailing market price was in
some instances one to two cents lower
than the price at which they had con
tracted to sell and at which they were
delivering their staple. This has given
the cotton farmer a new position, in
the future crop selling, and when cot
ton has reached eleven cents, it has
not been hard for cotton buyers to
make contracts for the next cotton
crop. 1 .
Two things result from this. The
cotton grower who thus sells is out of
the market, so far as being able to co
operate with any Growers' Association,
for his output belongs to some one be
sides himself, and it must also follow
that having contracted his crop at some
fixed price, the farmer is going to put
in so great an acreage as possible, and
this aga'n removes him from entering
any movement that the Growers Asso
ciation may wy to make up lor a re
Thus it is that this future crop sell
ing of cotton by the farmer, must
prove a serious handicap to those who
may try have any minuimn price, or
vho seek to have a co operative move
ment of the farmers to reduce their
acreage.... 2 ; ' ; .c,-
Whether this future crop selling is a
wise thing for the individual farmer to
do, h another question. ! It is only as
to its effect on the Growers Association
that is now considered.-

Greensboro. Feb. 23. Mr. G. S.
Bradshaw, editor of the Tar Heel
Weekly, as well as a prominent- attor
ney here, and recognized as the brains
of the Blackburn forces, returned last
night from his flying trip to Washing
ton. He sawthe President alone this
time, having no flying squadron to di
vide the President's attention When
Mr. Bradshaw ascended "the .steps at
the mansion going in, he was : a little
bit rattled to see Congressman Gudger
and Judge Pritchard coming down from
an interview with the President. While
Mr. Bradshaw is reticent as to the suc
cess of his mission, which ' was exclu
sively in behalf of his old college chum,
I'rot. j'razier, for postmaster, it is
generally understood that the Presi
dent has been prevailed upon to think
that the appointment of any recommen
dation of Congressman Blackburn's
would have a bad moral effect on the
indictments of revenue - officers ind
blockaders for alleged frauds in Wilkes
county." That seems to be Frazier's
only trouble. It is said that the Pres
ident has been reliably informed re
cently that Frazier was not Blackburns
choice, and that he only signed the
recommendation after being advised to
do so by Speaker Cannon. The next
move on the President in airing Repub
lican soiled linen, will be an attempt to
discredit the Douglas influence, -with
which the President is very much at
tracted, .especially by the fact that
they are offshoots of Stephen A and
Catholics. It is generally known here
that a record of events during- Judge
Douglas' reign here as Marshal and
Clerk is being prepared with a view to
showing that the Judge was short with
the Government to the extent of $ 10, -
000. The Judges active efforts in filing
scandalous charge '" against Prof.
Frazier, are said to be the cause of the
revamping of these old charges to show
that the pot should not call the kettle
black. ' No wonder the President gets
sick and tired of North Carolina Re
publicanism with Blackburn throwing
off on a United States Circuit Judge,
and a United States District Judge
and United States District. Attorney
and others gravely preparing what
might be termed accusations of embez
zlement against a former Supreme
Court Judge and a life long Republican
Federal office holder. It looks like the
democrats must have always been right
in not trusting State and county ad
ministrations in the hands of republi
cans, any longer than it could take to
make the negroes quit electing them to
office. It was much laughed at the
day he said it, but the remark Hon.
Romulus Z. Linny made to Collector
Duncan in the bar of the Federal court
while the Samuel case was in progress
may not be such a laughing matter af
ter all Said Mr. Linnev to Collector
Duncan in a stage whisper so that half
a dozen others could hear him:"Duncan
if you don't manage some way to stop
this fellow Holton, d - if we won't
have to hold the next State Republican
Unvention in Atlanta, if we desire any
working delegates in attendance. "And
no longer than this morning a Republi
can was heard to say: "If the Presi
dent wants to clarify the revenue de
partments and the revenue situation in
this State and will aonoint Judire
Bynum as District Attorney the whole
shooting match, leading members of
both factions instead ' of one, would be
in the nemtentiary before the conven
tion comes off."

The Secretary of State received a
rather singular request from a gentle
man', in one of the northern States in
which he expresses the wish for a copy
of the laws concerning the white slave
traffic in the State of North Carolina.
The agitation anent the retention of
C T. Bailey as postmaster in the Ral
eigh post office or a probable succes
sorsliip continues to agitate Raleigh
people regardless of party affiliation.
One of the developments by a contin
gency applicant is expressed it the fact
that Willis G.: Briggs has signed post
master Bailey's petition. J. W. Har
den is being advocated through his
friends who are circulating petitions
and securing signers thereto. More
particular: talk attaches to the possibil
ities of Lester F. Butler, a clerk in the
revenue' department - and - a 'younger
brother of Ex-Senator Marion Butler,
whose claims are founded on a friend
ship with the Republican party, and
whose influence will have its evidence
through the efforts and by the direc
tion of his brother whose work in Ma
ryland and in the West has a certain
weight with the "powers." There; is
at the same time the fairly' offered
statement by Mr. Bailey's close .friend
that his office is not : a question of
chance but is assured. In addition to
the formal petition persoral letters of
strongly termed endorsement are being
written, both voluntarily and upon re
quest - .
Mrs. Fannie Gill was born Nov. 12th
1819, died February 12, 19C6, being
eighty-six years and three months of
age. This aged Christian lady received
the fulfillment of the promise in His
Holy Word, "He that honoreth father
and mother, to him will I grant length
of days." Her faculties were unim
paired, retaining her memory to the
last. She had a wide circle of friends
who greatly enjoyed her company and
conversation when she was strong
enough to converse with them; for
from the storehouse of memory she
would bring forth reminiscences of the
older times that were amusing as well
as instructive. She was a lady of the
highest culture; of innate .refinement
enjoying all that was good and pure in
life. Always thoughtful of the wel
fare of others, she rejoiced with those
who were glad and happy, and sympa
thized with those who were troubled.
Her interest in home affairs, her coun
sel and guidance made tier the control-
ing influence to the last. Her life be
ing a long one, was naturally a check
ered one, a mixture of jy and Sorrow,
of brightness and shadows, but being
naturally of a sunny disposition she
was enabled to bear with patience and
calmness the suffering incident to bo
many years of sickness. Her faith in
God was strong and abiding, never
doubting the love and wisdom of
her Saviour, who directed her steps
through life, knowing that he doeth all
things well So in patient waiting for
her Lord, it seemed but meet, that
when "the silver cord waa- loosed and
the pitcher broken at the fountain,"
that at Eventide her pure, sweet spirit
should have . passed ; from earth to
Heaven as quietly and calmly aa the
infant falleth to sleep on its mother's
breast ; H.
