Kinston lawyers it will W Veil enough

' Th9.,bar here numbers six, and, con
trary to the opinion generally enter
tained about lawyers, none of these six
are fomenters of strife. Very often
would-be clients are persuaded by the
manly and sensible advice of counsel to
abandon their belligerent intentions.
D. E. Perry, formerly of Jones, is the
youngest member of the bar, and, with
his reputation before him, gives promise
of a bright and successful future. His
manners are pleasant, making him
friends among all his clients; and, as a
matter of news to the ladies, he is un
married, and does not want to remain
in that condition!
p-Hfe partner, Mr. A. J.-Loftin, with
one , exception is the oldest member of
his profession in the place, and, with no
exception, is one of the best read law
yers in this or any other bar. He is not
a good speaker, but his. research into
the principles and practice' of law is
deep and thorough, making him at all
times a safe adviser and a reliable advo
: From the firm of Woo ten & Gray you
find. twa. good speakers. Mr. Wooten
has long , had the reputation of being
the best jury lawyer appearing at the
Lenoir bar; while Mr. Gray is gradually
winning a ; similar name. The . latter
gentleman has the advantage of a finely
modulated'voice and pleasant address,
and is destined to make a brilliant jury
advocate, unless strange to say about a
lawyer his diffidence should keep him
backiHWe remember hearing the cele
brated Judge Battle say that he never
got up to make a speech in his life with
out fear and trembling.
The last firm to be mentioned, Jackon
& Lofting make a strong team. Every
body knows that "Brother Jackson,"
though slow, is sure, and that when he
goes through a case he leaves no point
overlooked. And ; he - is an effective
speaker He talks with so much earnest
ness and apparent sincerity that he often
convinces the jury against their previous
judgment. But the junior of the firm
is tlife fighting - member' (in its legal
sense) and he will contest every inch of
ground before,., yielding. '" Mr, F. B
Loftin is bold and self-reliantr is a hard
wdrk'erand a hard lighter, and when a
desperate case is on docket, he is more
often sought than - perhaps any other
lawyer in town. 'While the senior of
the firm is pacific? the junior ia a little

he can get three hundred acres planted.
Good land will produce from 20 to 30
tons per acre, worth $3 per ton in its

for the crop costs no more to make than
a corn crop, and is easy to house.

In the Enemy Camp.
A Journal reporter, coming from
Kinston yesterday, noticed a wagon,
buggy, mules and other implements for
the surveying party of the Midland Rail
way on the proposed Snow Hill and
Greenville Railroad.
On arriving at New Berne ye reporter,
meeting Col. Yates and Major Andrews
in the Central Hotel omnibus, inquired
courteously about the survey.
Col. Yates: "Don't know anything
about it. Write to Mr. McLane at Golds
boro and maybe he will tell you some
thing about it. Ill tell you one thing,
icell survey no route f rom Kinston. We
have no information to give you. We
pay our own money and keep our own
secrets. Isn't that right, Mr. Andrews-"'
Captain Andrews: "Yes, especially
when you are in the enemy's camp."
Journal Reporter: "I don't see why
you regard us as enemies."
Captain Andrews: "I don't see how
we can regard you as anything else."
Col. Yates: Don't you think it would
be a good idea to drive all the capital
out of the country?
Capt. Andrews: "Especially Yankee
Note. The Journal is a ieii?paper,
with opinions of its own on all live is

tion. The lease bv Mr. Best of the A.
' & N. C. Railroad had in it a firm sup-
rorier. as its nies wm snow, rmt yet it
does not hesitate to characterize some
of Mr. Best's plans as visionary, aa lack
ing in good judgment and as destined
to failure. We would like it to be al
ways uudeistDod that the Journal has
no friend that it will support contrary
to what it deems right; nor does it ever
expect to have an enemy whom it will
attack for interested or personal motives.
The Greenback Speaking.
Hon. Jesse Harper, chairman of the
National Greenback party, accompanied
by CoL John R. Winston of our State
Executive Committee, reached this city
on Saturday, and delivered addresses in
the Theatre at 11 in the day, and again
in the Court House at night.
In an interview with Col. Winston we
learn that it is the intention of the
Greenbackers to run a Congressman-at-large,
and indeed a full ticket, in the
State in the coming campaign. On be
ing asked if this would not probably
hurt tbe Democrats worse than the Re
publicans, he replied in the negative,
and stated that, in his canvass for Con
gress two years ago in Scales' district,
he drew more from the Republican
ranks than from their opponents but
that the Greenbackers had nothing to
do with who should be hurt; they were
building on the reason and good judg
ment of the people.
On assembling at the Theatre Col.
Winston introduced in a short, ringing
five minutes speech, the
or Illinois. The speaker has not a very
prepossessing appearance, but he im
proves while on his feet, and his speech
commands close attention, both as to
matter and manner. With a good com
mand of language, and with a happy
faculty of grouping facts for a definite
end in view, he almost forces conviction
even where one disagrees with his the
ories. We have not room to report his
speech, but it was well worth listening
The speech in the morning was calcu
lated to raise alarm concerning the
present system, and was directed to
wards pulling down rather than in
building up. At night the true theory
of Greenbackism was explained and il
lustrated. The Greenback theory has many at
tractions that would draw to it follow
ers and advocates only for the strong
party ties already held by the people.
If a disruption of old parties should ever
come, it is still problematical whether
or not the Greenbackers can build up aa
well as tear down.
New Berne'i Industries.
Occasionally we drop in to one of the
many places of industries in this city
and right here we wish to say that we
are surprised at the amount of manu
facturing done here. We have already
visited the Rice Mill of Mr. Elijah Ellis,
which has a capacity of cleaning about
four hundred bushels per day, and has
already made a good market for rough
rice, and the extensive Wood Plate Fac
tory of Captain S. H. Gray, which will
soon be turning out one hundred
thousand plates per day, and employing
over one hundred hands. Yesterday we
visited Major Dennison's
and were shown through by" the Major
himself. He perhaps gins more seed
cotton than any other ginner in the
State. His machinery is driven by a
75 horse power engine, using - a 120
boiler. The seed first pass through a
screen on the lower floor, which takes
out the sand, sticks, rocks or any other
trash, and are then carried by an eleva
tor to the huller on the upper floor.
After the hulling they go through a
screen which separates the hull from
the meat, the hull being blown out to
one side, which are sold for $5 per ton,
while the meat drops into a barrel be
low. The meat or germ is then taken
to the press room and passed between
two rollers, which mashes tnem per
fectly fine. They are then thrown into
the heater and kept twenty minutes and
then go to the press a certain quantity
being put into each sack by simply turn
ing a lever, and the sack placed into the
press. There are three presses in oper
ration now, and have the capacity of
using about two tons of seed an hour.
The oil goes from the presses into two
large tanks, where it remains to settle,
a pipe, through which the exhausted
steam passes keeping it hot. After it set
tles it is drawn off into barrels and
shipped in its crude state.
"How many hands have you at work
now, Major?"
"I have about ten at this business at
"Does it pay?"
"I hope to make it pay. Have not
been running long enough to say took
a large amount of money to put in the
machinery. If I had ten of those presses
and material to work on I could make
money. I have put these in to use in
connection with my gin, so as to enable
me to pay higher prices for seed cotton. "
"What is.this?" turning to a pile, of
honeycomb looking stuff to one side.
"That is the oil cake, which is ground
up and fed to stock."
"Well, the raw cotton seed are good
for feeding stock, and they are a splen
did fertilizer; are they damaged in
these particulars by this process; if so,
to what extent?"
"The mannrial value is not decreased
at all, for the oil is not a manure, and
the cake is a better food for stock than
raw seed ; so it will pay a farmer to let
me take the oil out of his seed, no mat
ter whether he wants to use them as
feed or manure. "
"What is the yield per ton?"
1 'About twenty-five or thirty gallons. ' 1
"What is the oil used for?"
"I learn that it is now used as an arti
cle of food; after going through a pro
cess of refining it is used for lard, and I
understand it is hard to detect it from
real hog's lard."
"What is the oil worth per gallon?"
"In its crude state about thirty or
forty cents."
We left the oil mill, thoroughly con
vinced that here is another institution
that will, as it is extended, be a source
of profit to the whole community; and,
furthermore, we were impressed with
the fact that it is an investment of Yan
kee capital that no one wishes to drive
The Major is an enterprising man. He
has bought the old depot building, torn
it down, and will use the lumber in
making room for cotton next fall.

Pamlico Items.
The farmers are having a pretty rough j
time for their work, the reason being an I
overplus of wet weather. The lower j
part of our county was almost deluged j
last Thursday evening with rain and
hail. One of the sufferers told me he i
had never in his life witnessed such :
large hail stones and the quantity was'j
equal to the size, and on Saturday we j
had another heavy waterfall. All com-;
bined makes farming rather wet.
It seems to be gaining ground that the ,
Second District in justice is entitled to ;
the Congressman at large, and so it seems i
to be the sentiment of all. I have heard
the expression of opinion, and if that j
should be conceded all that I have spoken j
with in our section are decidedly in i
favor of Major John Hughes of your j
city. If there is a man more suitable j
in the District or in the State the Demo- i
crats of Pamlico would like to be posted '
as to who is the man.
But unless we can have a change in j
our mail facilities it would be a hard
matter for any man in this section to j
ever hope to be posted on the subject,
notwithstanding we have a daily mail
(that is wrong a daily mail carrier in
stead of mail) . On the 8th day of March
last the mail bag was sent from New
Berne'as good as empty (so it 'has been
a time or two since) but upon complaint,
Mr. Hubbs, the Postmaster in New
Berne, endeavored to put the blame
upon the Postmaster at Grantsboro, and
Saturday last the mail arrived at our
place void of even a newspaper, and on
inquiry Mr. Brinson, the mail carrier,
states that the Jones county mail was sent
to us and stopped at Grantsboro, and he
further states -fhat he could form no
idea of what had become of our mail,
whether it had been sent to Hades or
some other seaport. Now what I want
to know ia whether Mr. Hubbs should
be kept in the office at New Berne under
such miserable management, when I
am aware of the fact that you have
Republicans in your place that would
discharge their duty promptly as has
been heretofore; I will state one, Mr.
E. R. Dudley; though he is a little
colored, I am sure if he had charge of
the office in your place we would have
no more such troubles. All we want is
our mail, not an empty bag nor Jones
county mail. L.
Swansboro Items.
A heavy fall of rain and considerable
hail, accompanied by a severe wind
almost a tornado visited this section
last week, which did some damage to
the crops. Luckily the hardest winds
did not strike the crops and fences of
the farmers or they would have been
blown to atoms, as the severe winds
twisted the trees to pieces and filled the
air with limbs, leaves, and pieces of
wood for miles around.
Mr. Nathan Gornto and Mr. A. Farrell

ton the first one, I believe. By the
way, he has some fine stock in the shape
of hogs, cattle and sheep. He lately
sheared five head of sheep, and realized j
45 pounds of fine wool. Four of the
five were ewes; one was a ram, from
which he got 13 pounds of good fine
wool. They were what Mr. Farrell
called the Cots wold half breed stock. I
think this will do very well for wool I
gathering in this or any other State.
The sheep are two years old. I also saw
a very fine Devon short-horn bull, be
longing to Dr. E. W. Ward, which is
certainly a fine specimen of the bovine
tribe. Dr. Ward is a lively, wide-awake
farmer; he has also some fine breeds of
hogs; so has E. W. Fonvilie, A. J.
Hurst, jr., L. O. Fonvilie. and others in
this part of the county. Marion, the
merchant, is also in the farming busi
ness. He has a gin, fishery, oyster gar
den, and store all combined in a small
compass; that is, being near the river
with his store he can attend to all of
them in a very short time with very lit
tle help. He has a vessel of his own
running regularly to Wilmington and
Baltimore, where he buys his goods, and
he is doing a good business.
We have good preaching in the neigh
borhood every two weeks. Rev. Mr.
Leary, Baptist minister (Missionary),
and Rev. Mr. Warlick, Methodist min
ister, Circuit preacher, are good speak
ers; and have large audiences at their
appointments. Hope to be able to send
a large list of new accessions to the
churches soon. G.

The" town election came off to-day j
Messrs, J. P. Brogden, O. T. Cable and j
Louis Daniels were elected town com- j
missioners. We expect the new board i
to perform these duties with renewed I
vigor and determination. j
Mr. Fred Street, formerly of New '
Berne but now of Va. who recently i
married in that State was in town last
week on a visit to bis sister Mrs. Chas.
Union meeting at Deep Spring a Dis
ciples church a few miles from here,
last Saturday and Sunday nights a large
and intelligent congregation were pres-
! ent. Hey. Mr. . Bowen preached an able
j and eloquent sermon Sunday.-
Mr. Burns a northern capitalist was
in this county last week on a prospect-
i ing tour. He doubt lean has some proj
j ect in view whii-h will be beneficial to
1 the count v.
I Mr. Isaac Biix-k brought tenoctwelre
bales of cotton to Trenton last week.
Mr. Brock is another one of the intelli
gent and successful farmers of Cypress
Creek. Being able to hold cotton this
late speaks well for the financial condi-
tion of our farmers.
We failed to et our Daily Journal
at this office twice last week. What is
the matter ? I will speak for myself as
well as the public generally that we are
highly pleased with your paper; it has
given entire satisfaction. The recent
editorials have been especially instruc-
; tive as well as highly entertaining.
