THE NOJRTH STATE. GREENSBORO, N. C: THURSDAY, MARCH 20. 1883. fTnv. "North State" is esteiied AT the Post-Office in Geeessbobo, as sec- OSD CLASS MATTEB. j The President baa , designated Gen, Frank Hatton to act a Post-Master GeneraL " - - Jerome Holt, the negro man who entered tbe bouee of Mr. WV Terrell, near Gibsonville, abont one month since, and committed an assanlt on Mrs. Holt, was hanged on Friday last, at Graham. The Charlotte Observer and Journal have been consolidated by the sale of lb Observer to the Journal Publishing Company. The Journal-Observer is welcomed to oar exchange list. It pre sents the best appearance of any. daily in tbe State. For all points between Greensboro and Charlotte it is equal to a home daiiy, for all late telegraphic and general news. There can be little doubt of- great prosperity for the Jour nal-Observer in a pecuniary point of view. A sub-committee of the executive committee of the National Union League met at the Continental Hotel, Philadelphia on Saturday. he con ference was attended by represent a tive men in tbe Republican party, tbe object being to further a movement for securing unity of sentiment in the ranks of the party. Gen. J. S. Neg ley, of Pittsburg, presided, and among tbe others present were Thomas (j Baker, of New York, secretary of the league; Greu. C. F. Grosvener, of Ohio; C. F. Scott, of W. Va.; Wm. A. Cook, of Washington, D. C; Donald Mc- Clain, of New York; A. M. Clapp, of Washington, D. C.; E. W. M. Mackey, of .South Carolina; W. P. Canaday, of North Carolina; J. E. Bryant, of Geor gia, and Messrs. C. A.. Boutelle and J H. Manley, of Maine, and a number of prominentliepublicans of Philadelphia. The question of holding meetings in the South to be addressed by North i em speakers was discussed, and it was decided to hold the first meeting at Atlanta, Ga., in the early fall. ' The Democratic legislature just ad journed was haunted during its entire session with the dread spectre of defeat in 1884. This dread accounts for the fact that a Democratic journal notes that "the session was devoid of any para mount interest." It gave form to all that was done and was the reason for what was not done. It was this that induced the provision in the reveuue act appro priating the price of the Western N. C Railroad for State general purposes and levying no State tax for 1884. It means we will bribe the people to vote for ns by relieving them of the State tax on the election year with money that should honestly be used to pay the State's repudiated debts. It was this spectre that caused the supplemental act crippling the act providing for a Governor's mansion. It was tbe same haunting ghost that defeated the Railroad Commission bill and also that to build a building for tbe use of the Supreme Court. The questiou never was what doesJ,he honor and dignity of the State require; or what will be of interest to the; welfare of the people, but. only what will save the Democratic party from threatened defeat what will serve to re-elect us fair or foul. God has forgotten to be gracious to a State when he suffers such men to pnt it to shame. The legislature has passed a supplemental bill to that to Drovide a munsinn fnr- fha dm,- eraor, which so conflicts with it as to render diu useless. lial. Uhr. Advocate. Just-like such legislature. Great effort has been made to "boost" up this legislature as of mere than average "make up." And yet its rtcord as gathered up by its friends proves it to be a poor mischievous thing without any backbone. The secret of this nugatory supplemental bill is that it was enacted so with a purpose. The original act called forth such proteets'from the Democratic tax-payers of the -tate that the friends of the measure became alarmed for their own re-election and the safety of their, party. They did not have the courage to persist iu their work, nor the manhood to undo it straight out, and so crippled it for life. These are the men who have no sense of public dutyi who live only to worm themselves into public favor by the most Unmanly and cowardly means. We are opposed to the whole ma'ter. Give the Governor a generous salary; let him buy or rent his own house, and furnish it according to bis taste and notions of what is proper in a Governor. It is not tbe cost of a Governor's mansion that calls for "our protest. It u the fact that every four years it will have to be repaired and refurnished at great cost to the State. Every new administration will demand this; lor on its evacuation by the late incumbent the furniture will be so injured, out of style, broken or. else carried off, that nothing will be left' worthy of further service. Although it was a mean and cowardly thingJ-yhilaJt shows the ani- mna of outbroken down aristocfevi Jtl wear clad of this imrmW.JSt. Cannot something be done to prevent oar laborers from flocking from our eastern section to the Georgia pine-fields? The Elizabeth City Economist says there is universal complaint of the scarcity of field labor. The prospect of untitled fields is a gloomy outlook for that large class of men who are so often spoken of as the backbone and who sorely are the foundation block of i the political fabric the farmers. Tbe fields are yet white with unpicked cotton, and seed-time is at band. Bib. Recorder. What a blessed right this is that the laborers now have of going to the Georgia pine-fields when they please to do so. jWe thank God for the power tbe working man has to def. nd himself. All ibese men need is to know their rights and the proper manner of their use. As our working people rise in the scale of intelligence they will be able to care for themselves. There was a time when the laborers of North Carolina dared not go to tbe pine-fields of Georgia or the prairies of Kansas. Did thev reallv venture to tr lor a home amid tbe snow and ice of Cana da blood-hounds were put upon their track and soon after subjugation by manacles and the lash they were com pelled to pick the cotton for a master. We, however, can answer the qoes tion of onr despairing cotemporary. Yes, something can be done to prevent this and all emigration of the laborers of North Carolina. Place North Carolina under Republican rule, as these laborers believe of riht it should be. County their votes fairly alter a free election when j they have voted for the principles they hold and the men they prefer. Give them county government. The Eastern North Carolinians demanded of the West that the laborer of the East be disfranchised. Now. be will not stay with you; he will go to tbe pine fields of Georgia and you may pick your J own white cotton fields. Treat the laborer as a man; give him fair wages; pay him promptly; do pot cheat him j and he will prefer to stay in North Carolina. He loves -the old North State; is attached to her people, and would rather lay his body to rest by the graves oi his kindred. Give him with your own children and the children of the white man who labors in the western counties equal advantages of education. He must educate his children and they shall be free even if he must go to Kansas. Never again elect such an unwise,1 bitter Democratic legislature as the one just dispersed. Its main business has been to sneak away the rights of the laborer; to degrade him to a condition of ignorance and dependence little less than thai of slavery Have your courts of law, as you call them they are now courts of oppression and inequal ty; have your judges, lawyers and juries treat the laborer as be does the while man who does not labor. White murderers rgb free; the black laborer who is charged with theft of a pig goes seven years to the penitentiary (?) to build your railroads. His unrequited labor you rob him of and be will leave you and your courts. He will go; be should go and leave the farmers' cotton unpicked. If the farmer would have his cotton, picked lit him treat the laborer justly, or do it himself and put his own children in the field. He will go to the pine-fields unless you heed what we say8, r Do this or you must be laborers yourselves. Do this or you must sell your lands to those who will do it. If you do this then you will Dot need further advice in the matter. In the mean time treat the laborer as Christian mta shonld apd as Gmd requires. Fayetteville &Vinston Railroad. Enterprises oi grea pith and moment are sometimes commenced very quietly, and their success is no less pronounced because little noise is made about them. Not much has been said about the Fav- etteville and Winstom Railroad, yet work has been commenced upon it at High Point with flattering-prospects. The charter for this railroad was obtained about two years ago, and about a year ago tbe company was organized. At the annual meeting of stockholders held at High Point on Xhe 28th of Feb ruary last, Mr. W. H. Snow was elect ed President, and under his efficient management the grading between High Point and the Deep River factories has been begun and will be vigorously pro secuted, j Such men as John H. Ferree, of Randleman, are also concerned in the scheme, and the plans will be ar ried out on a business basis no sentimental or expensive complications being permitted fo get in the way. Men of capital j and standing in the! north are stockholders and promoters f the enterprise. ! The line of the railroad will be through a ! portion of the State whose business already is waiting for it. The new company starts out without debt or embarrassment of any sort It is designed to connect the Yadkin valley witn tbe pea-coast, through the richest part of North Crolina, where no at tempt has been heretofore made to con struct a great thoroughfare (except in the days before railroads, when the old Fayetteville Plank Road company was so well patronized.) This railroad takes the same general direction as the old plank road and retains many of the features of its charter. We congratu late tbe people along the line, that they are to have an ontlet at last for tbe wealth of their soil, agricultural and mineral. Post Master General Howe Dead. On Easter Sanday at 2:20 P. M . tbe Hon. Timothy. O. Howe died at tbe residence of bis nephew, CoL James H. Howe, jat Kenosha, Wisconsin. Thw sad news caused a great shock in tb country, as it was not even known that the Post Master General was in ijl health. About three weeks aga, in good health and fine spirits he left Washington for Green Bay, Wisconsin, to attend to some private business. One week before his bad cold which death he contracted a settled on his lungs. In this condition he visited Col. Howe at Kenosha, Wisconsin, And while there his trouble developed into pneumonia which ended in death. Hisbnly dangb ter Mrs. Col. Eaoch Totten, of Wash- . - i ingtoni D. C, reached bis bedside be fore his death, j CoL Totten and his son and daughter, and also Judge Howe's only boo Frank H. Howe, went to Kenosha, but did not arrive there in time to see him alive. Tbns en led the 1 lifa of one of the ablest and purest men who have taken part in modeling aricl guiding the for tunes of our great republic during tbe oast q carter of a century. It was his destiny ti be associated with Lincoln, Stanton, Chase, Sumner, Morton, Tbad. Stevens, and many others of tbe civil heroes' in our history, who had to face secession and do and dare to save the life of this great nation. In early life Mr. 1 Howe left bis New England home and took up his abode in the wilds of the Territory of Wis consin. His name is honorably linked with every page of the history of that Territory and tbe young State which supplanted it. United States there 'eighteen In 1861, he entered the Senate and remained years eighteen yearn the most eventful in our history. Du- I J ! ring that time -.1 here was.no more in dustrious, careful or able legislator in that illustrious body. His whole poli tical life was true! to great principles and the best interests of his country He was firm, yet conservative in his party action, and to this added a gen tleness of nature which - made him. be v all those ;who had the honor and pleasure of his personal acquaint ance. Few men in public life possess such attractive qualities of manner and person as were found in Mr. Howe. A Nation may well mourn the loss of such a man. ! The Washington Republican of Tues day says: 1 . "The flags were at half-mast yesterday on all public buildings, and everywhere the post master general's death was mentioned with sorrow and regret At the Postoffice depart ment, which was early in the day draped in black, the news fell most heavily. Mr. Howe was known personally to many of the clerks. and very much loved and respected. In every group about the city there were men who knew him personally. A residence oi twenty years in Washington, for the greater part of each year, had made for him as many friends as ever a public man enjoyed. In talking np his death, various matters of interest came np. The patriarchal Lauren son was remind ed, as he looked at the chair and desk heavily draped in black,' that bat one other head of the department had I ever died in service-Aaron y. Brown,' of Tennessee, whose ueath occurred in 1859, 1 a few days after the death of John Marron, his third assistant. The fact was noted by another that three ex-postmas ter generals had died within the year pre- vious 10 wis aeaia juaynara, uenison, and Jewell. i The official order from the State department is as ioiiowa: DlPABTMEWT OF STATE, WASHINGTON, March 26. sir: it in my melancholy duty to Inform too that the Hon.

I i." I i Fkamz Hattox, I . ; : ? Acting Postmaster General.' "There is little in the publio or private life of the late Postmaster General Howe upon which the anecdotal writer can dwell," said one who knew him welL yesterday. "He was an even-tempered, kindly man, and there was nothing of the pyrotechnic or theatrical in his composition, lie was one of the most genial and approachable oi men, although he had nothing of j the hurrah boy, hale fellow style about him. He waa not a man one would slap on the ; back, tell a vulgar story to, or be bold with, although nobody likej j good company better than Timothy HoVe. Men who did not know him well sometimes mistook his placidity of -temper for weakness, but , they soon dropped him. He had more than ordinary nerve and decision of character, though he was not easilw stirred about trifles,' and was not the sort of man to go gunning inch cannon, j j ; for squirrels with eight ' "He was staunch and true to hia fnVna and in forming hia friendships he made few mistakes. Whetf in the Senate he formed a warm attachment for Gen. Grant and Senator Conkling, and he never let an opportumty go by of saying a good word for them, f "Probably the! most notable period in his life was the campaign against James li Doc-little, in Wisconsin, in 1866, which followed hard upon and was : in reality a part of his campaign against Andrew Johnson. Wisconsin was a doubtful State, and Doolittle, backed by the entire power of. the administration, made a bitter, relentless fight, but Howe met him on his own ground and won a famous victory. His own joJiiical life and that of Xtep. I little were in the hazard. The latter went to I the walL ar WW .a a a . . W 9 T alt. xiowe was nrst menuonea mm a candidate for the senate in 1857. The other candidates were Hon. J. H. Doolittle, Mr. M. M. Jackon, subsequently appointed comul jjen-eral at Halifax by President Lincoln, and E. D. Holton, of Milwaukee, i At that time a very strong element in Wisconsin had begun to oppose the fugitive slave hiw 104 capture of a fugitive, his rescue from his captors by Sherman M. Booth and others, and a long lawsuit which followed, having brought the slavery question into almost as much prominence in Wisconsin as in the southern or border states. Judge Howe did not take -ground with the radical abolitionists, but sustained the decision of Judge Dixon, who had taken a very conservative position. The public interest in this case had its influence on. the senatoral fight. Extreme abolition views were not by any means avowed by the majority of the party, and the candidates were required to subscribe to the doctrine of the state rights before they could receive assurances of support. This Judge Howe refused to do, and Doolittle, who had only come over from the democrats the year previous during the Buchanan- remont cam paign. was chosen. In 1859 Mr. Howe was elected to the seat, his popularity at that time being so great that his election was secured without a caucus. In fact, he never was the candidate of a caucus, and never was at the capital of his state during a senatorial election in which he was a candidate ior re-eiecuon. C030CE3TS Or THE PRESS. Sevo York Times. Whatever may be said of the deceased offl' cial as a public man. it will always be held true of him that he waa honest, pains-taking, and conscientious in the discharge of the du ties that were intrusted to him as jurist, legis lator, and executive officer. New York Herald. Mr. Howe entered the senate at a critical time. Secession was rampant. Mr. Lincoln in his message' had set forth very clearly what his duty was to the country at large and what were the obligations of his oath. In the debate that followed the 'spokesmen of one party declared that the inaugural was war message, while the, other side declared it to be a peace message. . Amid this distraction of opinion Mr. Howe made his first speech. He told the southern gentlemen that whether the message meant peace or war depended upon themselves upon the course they should pursue. These were just the words needed to be said, and had marked effect. Next came the financial difficulties growing out of the failnre of the banks and the suspension of specie payments. The question now arose whether the government should make its notes legal tender. Mr. Howe was on the finance committee. Its chairman was opposed to legal tender issues; others of the committee were opposed. Mr. Howe made a carefully prepared speech in support of legal tenders, and legal tenders became the standard currency of the country. Mr. Howe was elected thrice to the United States Senate, and served altogether eighteen years. In 1865, at Milwaukee, he spoke as follows: "One year ago, when largo rebel armies were fighting on Southern fields for the defeat of our ticket, then I held up to you only the flag of the union, and I appealed to you to stand by the party which stood by it Then I asked you to sustain the union party because it would save the country. Now I ask you to stand by the union party because it has saved the country." This little speech was the key note of his loyalty. Stamps for Tobacco, Snuff ana cigars. "Washington, March ; 25.

Senator Edmunds, tbe now acting Vice-President, lately joined his fami ly at Aiken, S. C, where they havu passed the winter, nd their programme for the summer includes a trip to the Pacific coast. Mr. Edmunds has tbe reputation of beinir a man of small means, but the fact is his income ranges irom ?Yo,VUU to fiuu.uuu a year. Besides his salary as senator and a salary of $5,000 as consul for the Vermont central railroad, he ie consulted in nearly every important case brought to the supreme ceurt. r or these opinions he receives sums varying from $5,000 to $10,000. Re cently he went over to New York and made an argument in two cases. His fee in each case was $10,000. He succeeded to a great deal of" Matt Carpenter's lucrative business, and, it is said, received $100,000 in retainers from the cable companies shortly alter Carpenter's death. His watchfulness over lobby schemes in the senate makes him a terror to lobbyists.. On the very day he took the chair ag President of tbe senate a bill came up in which a certain hardworking mem ber of the third house had a large in terest. When the clerk commenced to read tbe amendment which provided for the pavment of the claims, whiob. if it had got through, would have net ted his claim attorney about -$ 20,000, the President pro tempore said, "stop to the clerk. "What is that? The clerk will read it again. Tnat is clear- ly out of order' said the judge. "It is new legislation ana ne chair .rules it out of order,' The lobbyist was thunderstruck, and as soon as he could get control of his legs went out into the corridor and b. gan to curso EJ-I munds for everything he could think of." He was finally 'joined by other lobbyists, who agreed to see their man uext session and have Edmunds bounced. It would be impossible, they said, to get anything that had money in it through the senate as loner as old Edmunds was in the chair and Cue rell on the floor, and they both ought to be in the lunatic asylum.
