XORTH CAROLINA’S SUFFRAGE
Considerable feeling is being shown be
tween Democrats on one side and Repub
licans and Populists on the other over the
slate election which occurs next Thursday
in North Carolina. The Chief thing at is
sue is the proposed constitutional amend
ment for limiting the suffrage. The
real purpose of the amt ndment is lo close
the ballot box to negroes. The amendment
is practically the constitutional amend
ment that has been adopted in Louisiana.
It prevents any one from voting who can
not read and write any section of the
constitution in the English language, and
who has not paid his poll tax for the year
j preceding the one in which he offers to
register, but it permits any person who
had the right to vote in any state in the
Union on Jan. 1. Is>7, and any lineal de
scendant of such person, to register and
vote, provided he has paid his poll lax.
The latter clause is called the "grand
father clause*’ and is Intended to open the
way for illiterate whites to vote while
shutting out illiterate blacks.
A letter was addressed to tho President
| the other day by leading Democrats t harg
ing that the United States officials were
showing pernicious activity in the cam
paign, and were doing all sorts of un
1 scrupulous work. From all accounts these
officials have made themselves liable to
dismissal. It is doubtful, however, if the
President will take any steps looking to
the ousting them from office.
It is a matter worth noticing that the
leaders of the National Republican party
do not seem to be very much interested
in the outcome of the election. It may be
that they think the Republican party of
North Carolina will fare better without
the negro vote than with it. They are
well aware that under existing conditions
the negro vote is of no benefit to their
party. The Republican party In the South
does not furnish any representatives in
Congress nor does it elect any of the
presidential ele tors. It may be that
the Republican leaders are disposed
to see whether the Republican party in
the South would be any better off with
the negro voter eliminated. They . have
been told that the South will remain sol
idly Democratic just as long as the negro
has the ballot in the. Southern states, but
that if he should be eliminated from poli
tics the chances are that there would soon
be a strong Southern Republican party.
In the present contest In North Carolina
the Populists and the Republicans are al
lies. The Democrats are opposed to them,
but there are a good many white Repub
licans who are going to vote the Demo
cratic ticket next Thursday. They are
business and professional men who are
convinced that the state would be far
more prosperous if the negro were shut
out of politics
It seems to be the very general opinion
in North Carolina that the amendment
will be adopted. In the event that it is,
it is probable that the question of the
legality of the amendment will be que
tioned soon in the courts. The weak part
of it is the "grandfather clause.” It looks
as if that clause- were such a clear dis
crimination against the negroes that the
United States Supreme Court would hold
the amendment invalid. However, it will
be time enough to meet that question
when it arises.
A feature of the campaign that is at
tracting very general attention is the in
difference of the negroes to the result of
the election. They do not seem to care
whether the ballot is taken from them or
not. They have made such bad use of it
that it is probable that they have come
to the conclusion that the loss of it would
be a good thing for them, until they are
better prepared for it.
GOLD MINING IN GEORGIA.
It would not be surprising if the output
of gold in Georgia within the next ten
years should amount to several millions
of dollars annually. The reports which
are being received from the gold bearing
section in Lumpkin and White counties
are of the most encouraging character. In
our dispatches yesterday from Washing
ton, Wilkes county, there was a statement
that there had been found a gold field in
Lincoln county, and that one man had
been offered $280,000 for a tract of forty
acres by New York parties. Lincoln anl
Lumpkin counties are wide apart, indicat
ing that the gold-bearing section of the
state is extensive. t
A large amount of money has been
placed in gold mining in the Dahlonega
section. And the returns, It is said, more
than justify expectation. It Is reported
that the Consolidated Gold Mining Com
pany, which is capitalized at $5,000,000, but
which has invested, so it is claimed, only
about $500,000, will make this year fully
$1,000.1X10. There are other companies which
are doing so well that their stockholders
are more than satisfied.
Of course, full reliance is not to he
placed on newspaper reports ns to what
the mines are doing, because the news
papers have to depend largely on wlnt
they can pick up. Naturally the com
panies which are being operated are
averse to making known the details
of tlirir business. If they are mak
i' g money and are not seeking to dispose
or stock they will maintain secrecy re
specting the gold prospects. Doubtless
they have their prospectors out all the
time and ore keeping their discoveries
to themselves. If there Is gild bearing
land to he had they want it. The loss
said about the output of the miner the
better their chances will he for getnng
gold-bearing land at a reasonable price.
It b- said that some of the ore yields
at Ibe rate of $18.50 per ton. That is a
very large yield. Much of the ore. that
is worked in Colorado does not yield over
$3 per ton. If the ore in Lumpkin and
White counties Is ns abundant and as
rich as it is reported to be, Georgiu will
soon be classed as one of the big gold

DECISION OF THE GOLD DEMO
The decision of the National Committee
of the Gold Democrats not to call a con
! vention to nominate a presidential ticket
' is a wise one. The impression gained from
! published interview* with Gold Democrats
' in different parts of the country, is that
i Gold Democratic ticket is not desired by
the great majority of those who supported
j Palmer and Buckner.
Asa rule, Gold Democrats have made up
I their minds to support either Mr. Bryan or
Mr. McKinley, it is safe to say that four-
I Fifths of the Gold Democrats of the West
will vote for Mr. Bryan. In the East a
; majority of them probably will cast their
j ballots for Mr. McKinley. It is not a mat
j ter of much consequence how those of the
i South vote. It is certain that the electo
i ral votes of all of the Southern states will
go to Mr. Bryan.
In the West the silver question is look
ed upon as a dead issue. It is not be
lieved that Mr. Bryan, if he should be j
elected President, would attempt to ob- '
struct the operations of the gold stand- j
ard law, or that it would be possible to
1 secure the repeal of that law i during Mr. j
Bryan’s term of office. Having no fear of j
the 16 to 1 idea Gold Democrats will go i
j back to the regular Democratic organiza
! lion. e
The real fight in the Presidential cam
paign will be in the states of Indiana.
Ohio, Illinois and Wisconsin. Mr. Bryan
is sure of all of the Southern states and
there is not much doubt about his getting j
most of the Northwestern states. Mr. I
McKinley will get the New England and |
Middle states and the Pacific Coast states.
The fight will be for the states of the j
Middle West. Both political parties un- j
derstand this. It has already been an
nounced that Mr. Bryan will make some
speeches in Ohio early in the campaign.
The Democratic leaders have good rea
sons for thinking that he can carry the
President’s 6tate. With no Gold Demo
cratic ticket and many Republicans vot
ing with the Democrats on account of
their opposition to imperialism, the out
look for the election of Mr. Bryan is very
A Q 1 ARANTINK DISAGREEMENT.*
The disagreement that has occurred be
tween the health boards Louisiana and
Alabama respecting the existence of yel
low fever at Port Limon, Costa Rica, em
phasizes the necessity for uniform quar
antine Jaws. The inspector at Port Limon
for Louisiana reported there was
yellow' fever at that place. The Louis
iana 'Board of Health quarantined against
it. The inspector for Alabama at Port
Limon took the ground that the fever at
that place, reported as yellow fever, was
some other kind of fever. The Board of
Health of Alabama therefore refused to
establish a quarantine against the sus
pected- port. The result is that the fruit
ships that have been going to New Or
leans are now going to Mobile, and there
is not the best of feeling between the
There ought to be uniformity in quar
antine regulations. The precaution taken
by the Louisiana Board of Health will
be of no practical benefit to Louisiana if
it be a fact that there is yellow fever at
Port Limon. The fever, if it should reach
Mobile, would be introduced into Louis
iana almost as readily from that city
as from Port Limon. Mobile is only a
short distance from New Orleans, and
railroad communication is very close.
There are several quarantine bills pend
ing in Congress, each of which has some
good features. No agreement has been
reached with respect to any of them, how
ever. because health authorities in vari
ous ports of the country are not disposed
to accept a compromise measure. But
if there is to be quarantine legislation,
there will have to be a compromise. Hav
ing once secured a national quarantine
law. it would be an easy matter to amend
it in accordance with the needs of various
sections of the country.
A national quarantine law is n necessi
ty. If yellow fever should appear in any
part of the country, there would be put
in force at once all kinds of quarantine
regulations. The wheels of commerce
would be blocked, and the losses that
would be incurred by business interests
would amount to millions of dollars. The
differences which have cropped out be
tween Alabama and Louisiana are indi
cations of what would occur if yellow
fever or cholera should make its appear
ance in any one of our cities.
It is reported that a Pennsylvania
chemist has invented a gunpowder that
is not only smokeless, but noiseless. At
a private exhibition given a few days ago.
"a shell loaded with the powder was fired
at a target fifty yards away. The only
sound indicating the explosion was the
falling of the plunger on the shell." The
bullet pierced a plank of seasoned pine
an inch thick. What great possibilities for
this powder there are in warfare! "Snip
ing” with such ammunition would be like
striking a man in the back with a dirk
in a dark alley. In battle the army pro
vided with noiseless and smokeless pow
der could iie hidden and decimate the
enemy before they could discover whence
the bullets came. There would be no
more pleturesqueness In the. armed en
counter. The "smoke and roar of bat
tle” would give place to a graveyard still
ness while the silent messengers of death
sought liter lodgement. What would
be the effect of noiseless powder upon
the nerves of soldiers? In Innumerable
Instances faltering and fainthearted sol
diers have hei n given courage to fight like
lions hy the noise of the firing. With the
new powder there would not be that au
dible stimulus to the nerves, but the men
would have to go against an unseen, un
heard and to them absolutely intangible

There ts a little child a year or two old
in the slate prison, lie is with his mother,
who is under sentence for or;mo. The
mother is believed to be beyond reforma
tion. What to do with tlie child, a par
ticularjy bright and promising tot, is the '
question. There Is no legal authority for
keeping him in the prison. His moiher
objects to giving him up and the officials
are not willing to turn him into the
streets. To permit him to remain in the
prison with the woman would be to leave
him under Influences which would probably
ruin hie life. If a respectable family were
to adopt him. against the protest of the
mother, she would probably make trouble
after the expiration of her sentence. The j

Dr. Bradford of Cedartown, is right
when he says that small school girte ought
rot robe required to debate such ques
tions as. "Resolved, that the American
system of .trial by jury should be abolish
ed." The question is entirely too ab
struse for youthful brains. It is one
fit to engage the best minds of adults of
mature years. It might well enough be
assigned to a class of young men. but it
Is totally unsuited to young school girls.
A great difficulty in many schools is that
the teachers do not select the subjects for
debate or essay with a view to accommo
| dating them to the pupils. They endeavor
to force the pupils to accommodate them
selves 10 the subjects. The consequence
is that the children do not understand
what they are apeaking or writing about,
their Jit tie brains become muddled with
respect to the subjects, and the time is
worse than wasted. It requires intelli
gence, as well as education, to make a
successful school teacher.
The report of Fourth Assistant Post
master General Bristow on tho Cuban
postal frauds, shows a degree of rotten
ness in that service under Rath-bone and
Neely that is astonishing, disgusting and
humiliating. It is almost incredible that
Neely and his accomplices should have
been able to systematically rob the postal
service for several months before they
were suspected of wrong doing. It eeem
that the Washington authorities ought to
have been able to discover that some
thing was wrong before the thievery
amounted to more than $130,000. Mr. Bris
tow’s report, by the way, seems to call
for some sort of explanation from Post
master General Smith respecting the
“pull" exercised by Rathbone, and by
means of which he succeeded in getting
the Postmaster General to allow him an
income greater than that of a Senator of
the United States, and approximately as
large as that of a cabinet secretary.
A Turkish journal says that His Majes

that he feels. The slaughter by the Chi
nese certainly has not been greater nor
more horrible than the massacres of
Christians in the Sultan’s own country,
which were, it is generally believed, pre
cipitated by his own orders.

—Various theories are advanced to .ac
count for the deposit of carbon on the in

because the deposit does not depend upon
the degree of exhaustion. The idea ad
vanced by Berliner is also opposed, on
the ground that the deposit is the same in
continually glowing lamps and those which
are often relighted, which disposes ol the
idea that gases are occluded in the fila
ment and escape with explosive rapidity
when incandescence sets in. To meet the
occasion Herr Stark says the disintegra
tion of the carbon is due to vagrant cur
rents between various parts of the carbon
filament, which traverse the intervening
gas, as in a Crookes tube. He gives, as a
proof of this, an "aureole” between the
arms of the filament, which he declares is
nothing but the positive glow of a gaseous

position of which is doubtful, their place
on the chart of the globe being followed
by a query mark. When, therefore, the
fog bank took on the appearance of the
Farailone Islands and the morning star
showed up like a beacon on its peak the
lookout thought the land was dead ahead,
so tlte engines were stopped and reversed
and the ship was going full speed astern
when Copt. Buford reached the bridge.
It did not take long to discover the mis
take. and in half an hour the Grant was
once more on her course. Reed Rocks
have not been seen since 1868, when the
ship Yankee nearly ran them down. They
had always been classed as “doubtful,”
and the chamies are that the old Yankee
skipper was fooled by the morning star
and a cloud, as was the lookout of the
—Opinions of many scientific men and of
imaginative writers as to how the world
will end are gathered together In Pear
son's. Lord Kelvin predicts that the world
was doomed to die of suffocation; Nikola
Tesla thinks that*we may set fire to the
atmosphere with our eieetrical discharges;

this action is still going on and likely to '

On account of Its weight water tends to
descend into deep holes; while the center
of the globe remains In a fiery condition
this absorption Is slow, but as the cooling
of the interior rocs on the surface water
will penetrate more and more and will
enter into combination with the recently
solidified rocks in the heart of the earth, \
which are specially absorptive by reason
of their metallic composition. “The
