: A few weeks ago it was deter
mined by concurrent reports Irom
all parts of the country - that the
erop of all the small grains, and es
pecially of wheat, was to be the
best the country has ever known
Bat the same reports were "shaky"
on com. ".The weather in the fore
part of the season had been singu
larly cold and. unfavorable, and the
crop was backward in consequence
and. its outcome depended altogeth
er on, what the weather for the re
m ainder of the season might be. .
; These J depressing I reports had
hardly been made up before we
struck a streak of "corn weather"
that, has lasted pretty nearly ever
since. A fervent sun, interspersed
with sufificient showers,!" has f done
the work for corn, as well as for the
other grains, and J the 'significant
dropping of prices in the : Chicago
market from day to day, notwith
standing the alleged "corn corner,"
shows that the keen-scented and
keen-eved speculators ' realize that
a big corn crop is coming. But it
cannot be very largely in the mark
et for a couple of months, and as
the stock of old corn is small,, pri
ces may to a considerable extent be
maintained for some time yet, not
withstanding the tendency of our
markets to rapidly; discount all ex
pected results. ' - '' -:v
A temporary holding up of the
price canbe endured in view of the
conceded fact that the corn crop is
to be above the average and must
sooner or later come forward. There
are, too, other importan t results to
be looked for . from ' a good corn
crop. ' Aoout as mucn corn nuus iu

In the Fourth district a melan
choly, commonplace campaign will
end with the usual Democratic
majority of 1,400 for General Cox,
the present member. Mr. Dev
eroux, the liberal candidate, has
developed no power as a campaign
er and can expect nothing but the
Republican vote promised him. As
this is a minority it is difficult to see
its substantial value.
In the Filth district Scales, who,
like Nat Macon, generally votes
against all appropriations except
for public buildings for his own
peculiar district will succeed him
self by an increased majority.
In-the Sixth district the "scarlet
head sitting member, Mr. Dowd,
will hold his pwn. Since Editor
Jones has given up his independent
candidacy in this district there
is none to make him afraid. Mr.
Dowd talked with your correspon
denc iu early -summer about the
feeling of unrest among the young
Democrats in his district, and
appreciates, if he has not forgotten
it, the necessity ot attaching this
class to him. If he succeeds in
doing this he is safe; if not he is
comparatively safe, but his major
ity will make him ashamed.
In the Seventh district ex-Congressman
Robbins (Democrat) and
Dr. Tyre York are contestants for
Armlield's seat. Dr. York is the
onlj' convert M ho has any personal
following worth the writing it
down. Dr. York's candidacy was
predicted in the Herald, It was
denied in the country iournals, but i
when the twin conventions labored
simultaneously in the little rugged
mountain village of Yadkinvillc
the babj- was named York. I le was
a rdugh and J ready horse sense
country doctor, who changed the
color of his tentorial district's
politics by his personal popularity,
and can as e;ily let it drift back
to its Republican habits of thought
and ballot. -Robbins is and able
man, - ablebodied, as his - recent
knock-downs with young Mott will
vouch, as well as clever in speech.
He stood well in Congress untill
beaten for the nominetion in 1878
by Governor Armfield. ,
In the Eighth district of course
General Bob Vance will be his own
successor, as he has been for a half
dozen terms. He will have a ma
jority of anywhere between three
and six thousand. His zeal at
camp meetings during his vacation
is only equalled by his assiduous
attentions to the department during
the sessions of Congress. He has
established more post offices than
any living Congressman. While
this is not perhaps the highest
occupation of a member of Congress,
at the same tune it helps at election
times more than many unspoken
The Legislature of 1S81-2 stood
Senate, thirtj'-elght Demecrats,
twelve Republicans; House, seventy-four
Democrats, forty-four Re
publicans, two independents. The
State was so gerrymandered in 1870
that the Senate will under almost
all circumstances remain Demo
cratic. The Democrats will lose
some little this year, and thirty
Democrats and twenty Republicans
and independents will approximate
the strength of parties on a division
in the upper house. This change
will be effected by. small losses in
districts that are very close, and
where, the absence of very great
excitement will give the advantage
to the Republicans, who always
come out and always vote. With
good luck the Democrats will elect
half the next House of Representa
tives. v This will be a loss of four
teen and a gain of that number for
the Republicans. This gain will
not be a net Republican gain, as a
number of these independents will
bo independent enough to keep on
voting with the Democrats on mat
ters of general policy.
UNITED STATES SENATOBSHIP.
If the republicans carry tha elec
tion ex-Collector Mott will, of mere
course, be United states senator
instead of Ransom. This is not
likely to occur, and it may be safely
said that on joint ballot the next
Legislature will be democratic or
under democratic control. Who is
to be Senator? Ransom has the
best chance and is working in a
surprising fashion for Ransom.
But Vance is working as hard as
Ransom, it is suggested.. For
whom is he working! For Ransom?
Vance is the junior Senator, and
Senators are ambitious of prece
dence. It is a Senatorial vanity.
Does he prefer Governor Jarvis?
Will Jarvis, who has a great and
growing hold on the State give
place to 'Ransom for this once?
These personal ambitions will all
have to be settled. But it is1 pre
mature to discuss them. All these
democrats are hard at work to make
it possible to settle them among
themselves, otherwise Dr. Mott
will settle it for them all in a way
EEPUBXICAN3 OE DEMOCEATS?
V The republicans are very hopeful.
So are the democrats. The demo
erats win by force of numbers.
They are as ignorant ol organization
us Arabi's army. The republicans
are always organized. They have
105,000, negro voters. They always
vote. Garfield had 115,878, votes
in 1880. Of this number 11,000
were white republicans. Hancock
had 124,204 votes' The Presidential
vote is taken because no personal
consideration eould ihove here and
the party strength is best illus
trated.-Tne .Democrats nave a
margin of 8,"i20 plurality
against if the' feeling
them. II the ..parties poll their
relative number of -ballots, and
there is a defection of 5,000 Demo
crats or liberals in the ninety-six
counties ol the State, the Democrats
are done for unless there is a cor
responding defection from the Re
publicans ranks. Will there be?
Sanguine Democrats say that the
negroes will not be enthusiastic
enough over the liberals to vote
with any vim and spirit. These
are very sanguine Democrats. But
there is a class of Republicans,
Quakers in the Piedmont tier of
counties, who are weary of bosses
and whose patience is fatigued
with being hawked about year af
ter year to suit the whims and con
veniences of leaders. Will they do
Mott's bidding? Colonel Keogh
says they will not. He says so in
his paper. If they do not the
stieugth of parties will remain as
heretofore. But Quakers, even
when Republicans, generally fall
into line on election day. The
chances are that the Republicans
will gain in legislators, one or two
Congressmen and probably one
judge. But two months lie between
now aud the day of election and in
that time the bosses may disgust
more liberals and lessen their
chances of success. Besides a good
crop year is a very bad j'ear for
for changing parties. The State
is prosperous. "Why change?"' say

Cuba's Pitiful Condition.
Senor Adolfo Marqnez Sterling,
a distinguished Cuban journalist
and lawyer, sailed yesterday on the
Canada, on his way to Spain. In
regard to the condition and pros
pects of Cuba, Senor Sterling said:
'I am of the opinion that the colo
ny has nothing more to hope for
from even an angelic Government
at Madrid. Outrages, corruption,
and mismanagement are as ram
pant as ever. The Madrid Gov
ernment is daily drawing upon the
Cuban. Treasury to make up defi
ciencies there occurring. The
Governor has declared Cainaguey
and Cuba in a state of siege, so as
to clear the country of lawless char
acters left by the war, and without
trial exile them to the penal colony
on the coast oi Alrica.
"The native element is ill at ease
and would hail any movetneut
fairly promising a quick deliver
ance from the state of transition,
so protracted, either to independ
ence or annexation to this country.
"Having lost the European mar
kets for its sugar, and diiveu the
manufacture of cigars into the
United States, the island has only
the American market for its su
gars. Even this may not last long,
if the sugar-making industry de
velops in your Southern States as
it promises to do. Then the
United States will soon become an
exporter and the island will be
traded off by Spain as a good rid
dance. "Every thinking person in Cuba
knows that there is no loophole j
out of our financial embarrass- j
nients, and everybody is making:
hav while the sun shines.'' .V. 1". ;

: The season's husband fishery t at

who admired " it. Its glitter was
beautiful, but a glance at it was
enough to drive the. poor fellows

husband makes any mistake it is
that of thinking that the young
man who is lookingfor a wife wants
a costly piece of goods for show.
Some young men want this, but
there are few who can afford it and
even those who can are in many in
stances alraid to yoke themselves
to it. They know that a too showy
young woman, even if she has
wealthy parents, is apt to be full of
troublesome whims and notions
very difficult to satisfy. Even if
they be so sordid that they would
like to many for money, these
young men know enough to reflect
that riches sometimes take wings
and go out of sight. They stop and
consider that if there be wealth and
whims, when the wealth flies away
and leaves nothing but the whims,
the residue is an exceedingly un
desirable piece of finery.
Every summer there is a com
plaint of the lack of young men at
the watering-places. This year the
complaint is louder than ever. One
of the reasons is that the extrava
gant display made by some of the
girls frightens them away. They
can not afford such expensive lux
uries as these girls appear to be.
Thev go fishing, or boating, hunt
ing by themselves, or take long
pedestrian tours out of the reach
of the girls. The girls meanwhile
sit on the fashionable hotel W)i ticos
with their papas and mammas, and
lament and wonder.
The girl who lets nature take its
course: who avoids putting herself
on exhibition as if for sale; who
makes no more display than is con
sistent with gracefulness, beauty,
and good (mmon sense, is reason
ably sure of one of two things.
Either she will make a delightful
wife for some sensible and worthy
man, or else sue will turn out a
happy and lovely old maid. Better
be a nice spinster than an unloved
wife, married for money or show.
A Hot Springs'" Alitor Killed
Little Rock, Sept. 22. In Hot
Springs this morning Charles Mat
thews, editor of the Hornet, was
shot four times and killed iu an af
fray with Col. S. W. Fordyce, Vice
President of the St. Louis and Tex
as Narrow Gauge Railroad Compa
ny, and Col. Rugg, one of the pro
prietors of the Arlington Hotel.
It is not known whether Fordyce
or Rugg fired the fatal shot. The
trouble grew out of a bitter news
paper controversy over local affairs.
Fordyce returned to Hot Springs
on Tuesday evening, after a trip
along the line of the Railroad.
Bennett wins applause wherever
he goes. The people up the coun
try consider him equal to Vance,
which is saying a great deal. Sal
