Is tlio ( intimated production of Cigar
ettes for the present } car. This seems
almost incredible when wo consider
that ton years ngo nn Ainoriran Cicar-
otto was n rare thing. Tliu ( iiiestion ,
then , is not WHETHER wo sliall stuoku ,
or WHAT we shall smoke , as tlio ubovo
answers most emphatically tlmt wo
WILL smoke , and tlmt woMU. . sinoko
Cigarettes. But tlio question is which
brand of Cigarettes shall wo smoke ?
Which is tlio boat , purest and least in
jurious ? Iti deciding this wo would
advise you to try a packugo of the
UUKE OK DUIIUAM , as they tuo nmdo of
a mild , natural loaf tobacco , vrowu
iunnodiatuly around Dm hum , N. C. ,
and wrapped with pure impni ted rico
paper , consequently are as hirmless us
tobacco smoked in any May can be.
Th it the DUKE or Duuit VM Cig.uotto

the market.
That it is tnadu of n mild , old ,
aweot , line cured NORTH OAUOUXA to
bacco , from tin eo to flvo jears old before -
fore woikcd.
That the very BEST imported rico
paper ONLY is only used in n rapping
the in.
That DUKK SONS & Co. have an ex
perience of seventeen years in the
manufacture of smoking tobacco.
That their factory is located in Dur
ham , N. 0 , which is in the heart of
the finest tobacco growing section of
the stato.
That all these Pine tobaccos arc
marketed at Durham , giving them
first choice of the crops.
That the business of DUKK SONS &
Co. has grown rapidly from a small be
ginning to one of the largest smoking
factories in the vorld , proving the
merit of tlieir goods.
That analysis has shown the tobac
cos from which the DUKK of DUKIIAM
Cigarettes are made contain less nicotine -
tine than tobaccos grown in any other

WASHINOTON , December 13. Mr.
I'ondlutoii addressed the senate on the
civil service bill. Hotrnid :
All offices , except these involving
the very power and policy of the party
in power are the common property of
the people and not of the managers of
that half happening to bo triumphant
at the polls. Now , these offices are
paid out to hondnncn to enable thorn
to pay themselves for the energies or
money they haTO expended in pirty
services. This policy reaches from
the president down through national ,
state , municipal and lucihillairs to the
very street laborer. This is the spoils
system. Its name implies to oveiy
ono a vision of wrong , injustice , bru
tality , wastefulness , recklessness ,
fraud , speculation and such degrada
tion of person mid of parties as has
driven from American politic il life
much of the cultivated intellect and
refined morality of the country and
filled the most hopeful minds
uith sadness for much in the
piesont and giave anxiety
for the future. The spoils s\stem
wis the real assassin of ( iarfiuld. It
robs the president , cabint'fc ministers ,
senator , congressmen , judges , of the
time needed in the peifoiinanco of
public duties , renders tbnir public ac
tion often pirtisan , pit i ill and un
just , and too frequently hiuriud and
half done. In placu of the spoils sys
tem thorn should be instituted a moral
system which should bo founded on
the idea that public ofhco and public
trusts should bo nrUj/jii Loru4 solely
for the public good. The fittest men
shall administer them till fitter ttwn
bo found. That the offices have to
bo , except tlmt the faithful execution
of the duties attached to them are
nece sary to the public welfare and
maximum of efficiency and minimum
of cost , constitute the only condition
on which they should exist. Vnctui
cies should bo filled with men whom
proper , intelligent comparison , bisod
or comj etition , show to be the fittest
iriospectivo of political influence
or action , and then political
pleasure for pheo would
ccaso If removals weie only for in
efficiency , or unfaithfulness , or be
cause another was shown to bu bjltir
fitted for the place , the scramble for
oflico would ceas-j. Then thomihnr
dinato ci\il service would bo open t <
a'1 ' who choose to aipiro to it. Tin
aoivico would be filled with 11101
pro\on fittest by fair competition
The tone of all aspnautii would
bo ehiti'd by the cfaiscinti'iiit'pB that
they owed nothing t ) pitroii.igo , but
all to moi it. The ttiruee would bj-
como tenfold more ellicient ; public
expenses would be reduced ; piiuciplo
mid not emolument { vould become the
pii/oof pirty stiuL'Kle ; oven if tin1
/ual of party spirit .sliould bo sotiously
moderated , ita dingerous quality
would bo destroyed. Politics would
bo consigned to men of higher asjiira-
tions and nobler uiins. The motives
and tout' of party ttnfo would bo ole
vated. The temper and xeal of pub
lic partisan discussion would be
raised. Tlio tumidity of politics
would bo elimimittd. The pi evident ,
clinnet and cungrcas would have timu
mid heart for their high duties and
merit would acMuvo the highest re
wards , and excellencies would bo
stimiiliited into competition. A
higher grade of intellectual and
political cducatim would be do
nundi d and Btimuhted , and in time
the merit nysteiu which would nc-
coinpliMh nil this nonld reajh the pop-
iilur elections and aflect for the good
of tlio coiinti v , the popular choicti of
tint holders of these offices nhiuh con
trol the national politics. The popu
lar thought beinn' renched , tiins pub
lie opinion uould stimp out nil inter
ference with a free ballot and a fuir
count , whether by fraud , force or in
timidatioii of voters. Political asso
ciations and tlu exppiuhturo of ini-
ineimo sums Jof corruption funds
would bo done away with. Tlio gov-
eminent would becinno ono ofjluw und
co iso to bo ono of men , The political
idea of the meiit system is that when
ever a nuw appointment oriipiomo
tioii ahall bo nmdo in the Riibordmate
civil service , the ofliuo shall be given
to the man best fitted to dHchargu its .
functions , and that this fitness wh ill
bo ascertained by open , honest , impar
tial and competitive examination to
all who choose to present themselves ,
euch iispiiant to bo oxaminul with re
gard to the particular place hu deairci
to ( inter
Pondlelon concluded by appealing
to democrats to ally thomiolvcs to the
iiiovemont of u civil service , IM the
changes nf time would Homier or later
yivo them thu uovornment , when the
previous adheranco to this policy
would nnko firm tlieir popular sup.
| > ort und insure for them a useful
[ uturo disengaged from tlio influences
that now , sooner 01 later , wrecked all
American parties.
Logan's bill to place the name of
General Grant in the army on the retired -
tired list , was placed on the calendar.
Davis ( \ V.n. . ) presented a bill re
quiring the president to report what
frauds were perpetrated in the paj-
meiit of pensions ami what legi'Lvtion
is required.
Edmunds ollorod a resolution which
was aden ed requiring the pn indent
to present comes tif the correspondence -
once with Chili and Peru.
The feature ot to-day's session of
the senate was debate upon the civil
senile. Mr. Pcndlotmi , in addition
to his remarks rcpoitul above , re
viewed the utterances and wtititWH of
Senator DAW as on the Riibject ,
mid inferred from them that Dawes
desired no chance
Mr. D.XWPS followed , mainly to dis-
avoiv the inference drawn by I'endli1-
ton from his remarks. Ho had dif
fered with IVndleton duriiitf the last
congress only on the minor fe.ttuios
of the bill. Ills main oppositi > n waste
to the proposed boird < f examination ,
to whoso \un\s oveiy applicant
wus to nqunro lnmsolf to boupi > ointed.
The difficulty , ho said , was not in the
law , but in its administration. Whu
was needed wus ouiiiipotunt public
opinion to rinko the statutes obsumd.
The need is iho statute should bo
a majority one. If the president wim
in sympathy with the measure pro
posed , it would work well. If not ,
the board treating his creatures would
work out his political purposes.
Strong public euntiiiiont would compel
the presid lit to carry out the law. It
public sentiment was right , machinery
would bo of little consequence.
Ingalls suggested an amendment to
the bill to bu made at the proper time ,
providing that appointments be dis
tributed among the several states , according -
cording to the precodini * census. _
Hill ( On ) siul nobody questioned
the evils of the present system. The
trouble was to find u remedy. Tint
those evils did exist , wns not through
any want of legislation , mid ho could
not BOO how legist ition would rcnuily
them. Everybody pieachtd , but no
body practiced civil service rofonn.
Ho portrajod the death of Pros dent
