I '; Speech of Mr. G, Zr-ttHmelr r-
Upm the 121 antfinVnyXUef1 the
; City of, Vilmingto. ,, "" , , 1
Mr. Si'BAKKa: I wish to detain the
Honse a very few micutes on this matter. I
have not as yet beard any arguments in la
yer of this bill. , I underatand, however,
that it is urged in its defence, that a major
ity of the property holders in , Wilmington
are in favor of it... I design tooppose its
passage. I wish to know whether, there is
any tault to be found with the present
management of the city of Wilmington ?
a city whose financial condition is such that
while its debt is nearly as great in propor
tion as that ot tne State ot .North Carolina,
its bonds are quoted as high or higher than
those of any city in the South, a city whose
government is not interior to that of any
city of the United States.
This bill, if not contrary to the letter of the
Constitution, is contrary to its spirit, The
Bill of Rights says that all political power
is vested in and derived from the people.
But this bill proposes to take the power
trom tue people, ami to give it to the prop
Again in section zz, the isill of Rights
declares " as, political rights and privileges
are not dependent upon or modified by pro
perty, therefore no property qualification
ought to affect the right to vote or to hold
Now, sir, I contend that the purpose of
this bill is, ana tne result ot its passage will
be, to deprive the colored man of that right
of suffrage and of holding office which is
guaranteed by the constitution of the Uni
ted States.'' I affirm, sir, that this is the
plain purpose of the bill.
. I wish to ask any gentleman here if lie be
lieves that the right cf suffrage is given for
the protection 1of ' property alone f if it
should not be regarded as much more for
the protection ot pereous tor the protection
of the rights of life nod liberty rights as
dear to the poor man as are his bricks and
mortar to the self styled aristocrats. I pro
pose to bow the rights are to be tram
pled on how poor men are to be disfran
chised by the' passage of this bill.
' The speaker here exhibited a map of
Wilmington, showing the city districted in
to four very equal sections, by two lines
drawn at right angles. '
' v Here sir, is the city of Wilmingtnow
districted., How equally y it 'is districted is
1 evident to thereya. . Thefe is . little un-
T avoidable inequality. One of these wards is
too large, it is the purpose ot this bill to
make it larger. JSow I wish the House to look
on that picture and then on this.
Here the speaker showed the map mark
ed wun tortuous uiacK noes, showing how
inequitably the city would be districted by
tne Dili Detore tne House, i
1 Here is a ward containing not more than
400 voters, here is another which contains
1400 voters. That is one alderman will rep
resent in one ward 200 persons and in anoth
er ward lrom 700 to 800. That is, this bill
determines that 200 Democratic voters shall
have as much legislative power as 700 or 800
Republican Voters. These are facts. The
bill disfranchises colored men to a certain
extent I therefore contend that it is this
purpose and this alone which influenced the
introduction ot this bill.
I have said that this ward which will be
made larger by this bill, is already too large.
&t the last election about 2U0 men were
unable to deposit their votes, because the
time was too short to receive them all, and
the bill provides lor no additional election
If this is to be a plank in the platform of
the Democratic party, 1 wish It to be under
stood. I have no hope, at all, of being able
to deleat this bill. But 1 wish to compel
the acknowledgement that property qualia
cation is a plank in the Democratic platform.
I wish the people to know thst all the
charges made by Republican speeches in the
canvass are well founded, and that is the
design ot the Democratic party to deprive
the colored man ot the right, to vote as soon
and as far as they have the power.
Gentlemen of the Democratic party, the
question of State's rights was decided by
the late war, and yon now sustain the same
relation to the city of Wilmington, that
the national Congress sustains to you. And
while you are applying to the Congress of
the United States to have your benator ad
mitted to that body, do you think they
ought to listen to that ' application while
you treat in this unjnst manner the wards
of the nation that have been committed to
your care.- - For these people have been and
arc now the wards of the United States,
for'1 they received their ' freedom and the
right of suffrane from the United States,
and not from you 1' You, while , you are
asking the removal of your own disabilities,
purpose to inflict this outrage upon the
wards of the United States, because they
do not own so many bricks, or so . many
square feet of land. I ask if this is the
moderation which is proposed by your Sen
ator elect if this is the moderation which
you yourselves propose I . ; , ,.
I shall close with a simple word of warn
ing. . If you continue to pass such meas
ures, if you continue to trample upon the
rights of the poor you will, in about two
years time, arouse a wave of popular indig
natian, which, rolling from Cherokee to
Currituck, will engulf you in the miseries
of political damnation, and teach you that
the liberties of the ople are not to be"
trifled with. '" .." '...-.. , , ...

to stop every school now in "operation.
When this has been done the Very raed who
are now in favor of lixin, the ; salary at
fifty dollars por annum will 'cry put that
the Republican party has failed. to provide
schools for the children of the State, It
is a fact that cannot be denied; that there
are now schools in two thirds of the counties
in. the State, all getting along exceedingly
wcU and doing much good. What then is
to be gained by fixing the salary at fifty
dollars f Nothing, except th$: destruction
of the schools. If the objectors to get Mr.
Asliley to resign, why not askhim to do so
by resolution1! In case he should resign
the Governor appoints and i man of the
same politics would be appointed to fill the
vacancy. ' Nothing in a practical point of
view would be gained by this. ' What ben
efit then docs the Legislature expect the
State to receive by fixing the . salary at fifty
dollars ? ' None, except to save twenty three
hundred and fifty dollars pec year, and at
the same time do away with every school
now in operation, t This will be the effect
of the passage of the passage of the bill in
its present shape, and we charcc that every
man who votes for it is an 'enemy to edu
cation, an enemy to the best interests of
the State, and totally unworthy of the con
fidence of 'any people. Taxes have been
collected to carry, on the schools for an
other year and is now in the treasury; what
it to become of this money ; is, the Legisla
ture going to appropriate it to pay per diem t
If not,why violate the Constitution and stop
the schools ? Every member of the Legisla
ture took an oath to support the Constitution!
and that instrument says .schools , shall be
kept up four months in each year. Demo
crats propose to violate their jiaths by clos
ing up the schools now in operation and
have no schools until a Convention can be
called, the Constitution obliterated, another
framed, the public school system done away
with, and tree schools, such as fit no one
for any business, established throughout the
State. This is what the present Legislature
proposes to do. . Did they tell the people
that they intended to abolish the public
schools ? No. They told them nothing of
the kind, yet they propose to do this very
thing and deceive the people by telling
them that they reduced the salary that
they saved their money and thereby re
lieved them of taxation. When this shall
have been done two hundred thousand
children will be idling away precious time
that ought to be spent in the school house,
will be growing up in Ignorance and vice,
and at the same time money enough to keep
schools in every township in every county
(i Ivincr idle in the Treasury. The benefit
that the State will receive from such states
manlike legislation as this, will be the sav
ing ol twenty-three hundred and fifty ilol
lars per annum! The saving of this sum at
the expense of schools is worthy of men
elected to office by frand, intimidation and
murder. "It is a long lane that lias no
turn;" and the men who are instrumental
in destroying the -school system of North
Carolina will be dealt with as enemies of
good government enemies to the best inter
ests of the people, and enemies to every
principle of Republican government that
docs not operate to the advantage of the so-
called Democratic party.
; This same bill proposes to fix the salary
of the Superintendent of Public Works at
fifty dollars per annum. This officer has
not been clothed with the power that the
Constitution intended he should be; but
his salary is not ' more than it ought
to be considering' the duties lie is com
pelled to perform. ,: Had the majority
of the . Jast , legislature ..been con-
trolled by right and Justice the entire con
trol of the State's interest i the public
works would have been in the hands of this
officer, and the heavy burdens that the Re
p.ublican party had to shoulder in the last
campaign would have avoided and the con.
ditlon of our public , works Would have
much healthier than. they ;;aro to-day.
Those who had control of these matters
probably done the best they could we small
not find fault now but the Legislature will
enhance the welfare of the State by clothing
the Superintendent of Public, Works with
the necessury power to enable him to take
complete control of the State's ntercst in
all works of internal improvement, instead
of making the office a nullity by fixing the
salary at fiftv dollars per annum. It was
the intention of the frarriers 6f 'the Consti
tution that this officer should exercise all the
powers and perform all the dotietpertaining
to works of internal improvement, that the
Governor heretofore and is now exercising.

The radical Democratic Legislature now
i session passed a bill yesterday auicndisg
te charter of the town of Wilmington. A
provision of the bill requires of all ' persons
who propose to vote in the municipal ' elec
tions of that town, a residence of ninety
days in the ward in which they propose to
vote. This provision is at variance with the
intent of our State Constitution if not un
constitutional.... The Constitution requires a
residence of twelve months in the State and
thirty days in the "county to entitle a person
to vote, The ninety days residence is a blow
at the colored voter?.,;. Ii is well known
that colored men work -wherever they can
get work tlicy are without land, and a
great many of them are without any fixed
residence.. This bill will disfranchise a great
many colored men; It is done for the pur
pose of placing Democrats in control " of all
the towns in the State. Instead of following
iho requirements of the State Constitution,
the. Democrats go beyond that instrument
and requires ninety instead of thirty days.
This is consistency ! The groans of , those
who are prohibited from holding office by
the Constitution of the United States have
been heard ail over the counfry,'; and the
representativesof that party which has com
plained of the dkff&ncbement of the intel
ligence Lthe-Soutlsnow proceed to put
lnto operation a law tiat virtually disfran
chises colored men. ' tttot requirement had
been thirty days we couldY have made no
objection because that would have been in
conformity with the StatConEtitution. It
ia ltnri pnnncrli fnr the TlpmArmrJl to intimi
date and kill jthrough the agency of their
chief ally the En Klux Elan but to pass
a law disfranchising a great' many men is
worse than we supposed apologists for mid
night murders and members of the Klaii
would do, ,
One E. J., Warren, Senator from Beaufort,
originated this bilL This man would have
accepted the Republican nomination for a
Superior Court Judgeship liad.it been it
been tendered to him by the nominating
Convention of 1868. Because he did not
receive the nomination he went over tc the
Democrats and is now the chief radical of
that party. , ' -
i We call the attention of the Cong! ess to
the course of the Legislature. We had
hoped bitterness and proscription had seen
its day, but it seems that the Democrats in
tend to drive the Rcpublcans of North-Car
olina to the wall and that every means both
fair and foul will be used to accomplish that
end. ' We shall fight the devil with fire, and
we begin by asking the Congress to scan
carefully every bill introduced to remove po
litical disabilities, and to lay on ' the table
every bill that contains the name of a Dem
ocrat. Let Vance, Rogers, ' and Waddell,
remain under the ban until their friends
learn to respect the Constitution of North
Carolina. : We are ready and willing to
bury the hatchet, and we hoped the last
campaign had obliterated all radical ideas
lrom our people, and that moderation, pru
dence, and justice would reign' throughout
te State. We had hoped the Legislature
would not pass extreme measures or do any
thing rash. It seems that a persistent, ag
gressive war is to be made Upon the Repub
lican party, and as far as it lies in, our pow
er blow for blow shall be given. We ask
no quarters and shall give none.
, Then and Now.
lit is both interesting and instructive to
refer to past history occasionally, and com
pare the same with the present times. ' By
so doing we will be astonished how forget
ful we are of the most startling events that
occurred only a. few-years ago. i,
'In 1864' Vauce was Governor. In 18'
floldcn is Governor.' ' In 1864 Vance had
his militia in the Counties oi Yadkin and
Wilkes., In 1870 Holden had his militia in
Alamance and Caswell. ' In 1864 i Vance
made his military arrests.' ! In 18T0 Holden
made his,' Thus far we have a parallel , be
tween the two. Here it -stops ; for while
Holden claims to have made his arrests un
der an act of Assembly, Vance made his ar

thority. Holden arrested men of promin
ences-Vance arrested poor old . men and
women who were without ' prominence or
means to help themselves. The men arrested
,by Holden were accused of belonging to a
band ot midnight robbers ' and assassins.
I The inen arrested by Vance were guilty of
the critnenf havingsons who were bnwilling
to fight against the United States, and had
taken the bushes to escape conscription.
Holden is denounced and threatened with
impeachment for' arresting gentlemen who
were accused ol being robbers and assassins.
Vance is elected United States Senator for
arresting poor old men and women.' 1 1
j We have made this parallel and contrast
to show that circumstances alter cases,"
and that which qualifies ' Holden" for 'im
peachment; qualifies Vance for a seat in the
United States Senate.,;,;, ; I''. :;.;
Gov. Vance said some time agoi that' he
had quit "eating dirt." We understand
that he said before the,. Si natoria),, election
thr.t any man who had been relieved of poli
tical disabilities was not worthy to be elect
ed Senator, as the relief by the Congress ivas
a certain and unrnistakrtbje Mo", that 'j all
such i::en had "truckled to the powers that

Vance has taken to ''eating dirt" again ? If
he ha, how came lie' by that ' letter ffoin

Editor Sentinel : In your issue of the

find the following sentence : v ' -
' "His TGov. Holden sendiLg troops to
Moore county and turning out the Sheriff
who was elected by the people and puttin
into the office one who was not elected was
an impeachable act," :: '1 '' v ''
: I commanded the troops sent to 'Moore
county, and on my departure for that ounty
I received the following orders . lrom Uov
Holden: "Goto Moore county, preserve
peace and order subject to the civil authon
ties. Report to the Sheriff, as soon as you,
arrive." Upon my arrival, in accordance
with this order 1 reported to blieritt Worthy.
Soon thereafter the decision of tbe Supreme
Court in the case of Worthy it. Barrett t ar-f
rived, and was exhibited to me by Mr. Bar
rett. 1 1 immediately sent for Sheriff Worthy,
and in Mr. Barrett's presence asked him if
he had seen the decision.; He replied' he
had, and said that his attorney had informed
lum if that order ot the Court was received
he would be no longer Sherifl, tc. I took
no part in displacing slienlt Worthy or in
installing Sheriff Barrett, as I had no orders
on the subject. .--... ; !,
