A happy and prosperous new
year to the Bulletin's friends.

The mere fact that D. W. Mc

Court, is evidence that he has per

The Pulaski Citizen says "it will
be unfortunate for the state if legis
lative candidates are nominated
solely with reference to how they
will vote for United States Senator
A much better plan will be to nom
inate the best men available for the
legislature, and then, if that should
seem desirable, instruct them how
to vote for Senator."
John Sharp Williams, leader of
the democratic party in the House
of Representatives, in speaking of
national issues, says; "Revision
of the tariff, at least so far as it
shelters the great trusts; larger
powers to the Interstate Commerce
Commission to deal with transpor
tation rates; colonialism, as recent
ly inaugurated by this government;
corruption in office; recklesness in
our dealings with other nations
these in niv opinion will be the
great issues of the national cam
paign of 1904, to be forced to the
front by the democratic party
And on them the democracy, united
aud harmonious, will be willing to
rest its claim to power. Others

of Congress progresses, but these

Baltimore, .Dec. 18. North Car

Gov. Charles Ayecock in a speech
at the first annual dinner of the
North Carolina Society of Balti

ed the gaests. There were 300 per
sons present. Gov. Ayecock said:
"I am proud of my state, North
CuFoiina, because there we have
solved the negro problem, which re
cently seems to have given you
some trouble. We have taken him
out of politics and have thereby
secured good government under
any party and laid foundations for
the future development of both
races. We have secured peace and
rendered prosperity a certainty. 1
am inclined to give to you our so
lution of this problem.
'It. is first, as lar as possible,
under the filteenth amendment to
disfranchise him, after that let him
alone; quit writing about him; quit
talking about him; quit making him
the white man's burden; let him
tote his own skiliet; quit coddling
him; let him learn that no man or
race ever got anything worth the
having that he did not himself earn;
that character is the outcome of
sacrifice and worth is the result of
toil; that whatever his future may
be, the present has in it for him
nothing that is not the product of
industry, thrift, obedience to law
and uprightness; that he cannot by
reason of council or league, accom
plish anything; that he can do much
by work; that violence may gratify
his passion, but cannot accomplish
his ambition; that he may eat rare
ly of the cooking of equality, but
he will always find, if he does, that j
there is death in the pot. Let the
negro learn once for all that there
is unending separation of the races;
that the two people may develop
side by side to the fullest, but that
they cannot intermingle.
"Let the white man determine
that no man shall by act or thought
or speech cross this line, and the I ehouia not await government aid,
race problem will be at an end. but use to the utmost their own ex

mity to the negro, but in regard for
him. He constitutes one-third of
the population of my state; he has
always been my personal friend.
As a lawyer I have often defended
him and as governor I have fre
quently protected him,
flows in my veins the blood of the
dominant race, that race that has
conquered the earth and seeks out
the mysteries of the heights and
depths. If manifest destiny1 leads
to the seizure of Panama, it certain-
ly a little likewise leads to the dom-
' inance of the Caucasian. .When
the negro recognizes this fact we
i shall have peace and good will be-
tween the races, but I would never
have the white people forget their
duty to the negro. We must seek
the truth and pursue it. We owe
an obligation to the 'man in black.' j
We brought him here. He 6erved
us well. He is natient and teach-!
able. We owe him eratitude.
Above all we owe him justice. As
a white man, I am afraid of only
one thing for my race, and that is
that we shall become
afraid to give
the negro a fair chance."
The age of steam and electricity
has brought about rapid progress
and development in many particu
lars, but one of the basic necessi
ties of an advanced civilization is
still good roads country roads of
the ordinary kind over which far
mers carry their produce to ship
ping points, and on which all travel
and intercommunication of a local
nature is dependent. Nothing adds
more to the welfare of a community
than good roads, and they are nec
essary to make the railroad and
steamboat lines of proper avail.
A very quiet but persistent move
ment is in progress all over the
country now, having for its object
the improvement of public roads.
There are organization- for the pur
pose of promoting the cause, but it
has its chief support from the far
mers of the country whose conven
ience would be greatly served, and
whose profits would be much in
creased if good roads were general.
The recent farmers' convention at
Jackson passed a series of resolu
tions advocating government aid to
good roads, ine resolutions "em
phasized the fact" that it is not de
sired that "the government build
the highways of the country', but
only assist those counties and dis
tricts which will undertake to raise
money tor the purpose."
The argument was made that th
government 6pends millions of dol
lars annually for the improvement
of rivers, aud has subsidized rail
roads with grants of public lands,
aud thit a greater benefit would b
derived from the improvement ot
the public roads. The establish
ment of rural mail routes was cited
as another reason why the govern
ment should have an interest ii

tion adopted this among other reso

the right of local self-government,
but in bearing their own burdens of

purposes there could be no rational

RICHARDSON PREDICTS DEMOCTATIC
Washington, Dec. 21. liepresen-

Tennessee, said to-day that in his

been since 1802

principles triumph," said Mr. Rich-
"Democrats are now where, they
were before the split on the money
question," continued Mr. Richard-
son. "There is no division ot be
lief on the cardinal doctrines of the
party. The money question is not
an issue and will not bean issue in
next jcar's campaign. I have no
desire to attempt to write a demo-

tariff looking toward freer trade is
something in which all democrats
believe, and somethiug that is im-
peratively demanded by the beet in-
teresls of the1 country. Mind ,you.
I do not say free trade, for the ne
cessities of revenue make free trade
impossible, but we could and should
have freer trade along all lines, and
not free trade in spots.
"Other doctriues upon which all
democrats can stand are business
like economy in public expenditures,
opposition to the autocratic rule of
the present dynasty of the White
House and honesty in our foreign
relations. The latter is especially
important. We should deal honest

papers have also been simi-i

to what they conceived to be

and their refusal to indorse
what they believed to be un

ablest democrats were driven
or voluntarily retired from
public service on account ol
this intolerance, but the
new papers have thrived and
grown stronger because they
do not depend on political
patronage or public office for
