THE DAILY CITIZEN,
FACTS AND COMMENTS.
Tim attack of the Progressive Former
on Senator Vance which npc!ired in the
last issue of that Mtper has called forth
comments from nearly all of the state pa'
pen and it worthy of note that not
one of them has yet been found that
voices the sentiments of the organ which
pretends to champion the cause of the
alliance. The State Chronicle heartily
condemns the article editorially nnd in
its local columns has an interview with
J. L. Ramsey, the associate editor of the
Farmer, who was responsible fur the edi
torial. He attempts to crawfish out ol
nearly every accusation made in the at
tack, and ii' the truth were now known
he no doulit rege that be ever allowed
it to sec print, Uut the harm has been
done. It Iihs gone forth that the Prog-
ressivc Farmer, the organ of the alliance,
is opposed to the re-election of Senntor
Vance and even should a retraction be
made It could not be aB widely circulated
as was the former.
The fact is the North Cnrolinn farmer
never bad a truer, more faithful friend
than Senator Vunce. lie has made it his
business to interest himself particularly
in that legislation that would be to their
interest and benefit. He is the greatest
exponent of low tariff in congress. He
has never failed to work for a measure
that would reduce taxation; he never
failed to work and vote for a measure
that would put more money in circula-
tion and he is the avowed enemy of the
trust and monopoly, the greatest enemy
of the farmer, and now he is attacked be
cause he writes an honest manly letter
saying that he cannot supiort the sub-
treasury bill which he introduced by re
quest. He cannot support it liccnuse be
does not think it will lieuefit the class ot
people it is intended to reach. In the let
ter he tells how be thinks relief can be
brought and there is no man better pre
pared to write on the subject than he.
Hut the Progressive Farmer cannot sec
it In that light and for that reason it
comes out in a most unwarranted nttnek
on the foremost man of North Carolina.
It is as unjust as it is uncalled for.
The farmers' alliance is not to blame
for the article as it npiicared. The pnivr
is the organ ol the ullinncc in the state
but surely they cannot endorse so vile n
slander on their best iriend. They surely
cannot voice the slanderous words ol
their alleged representative.
It is a pleasure to note that no place
does it receive a secoud. The Richmond
Dispatch says of it :
And the alliance oman of North Caro
lina declares war upon Senator Vance!
It remains to lie seen whether the good
and true alliance democrats of the Old
North State will uphold the alleged or
gan on such warfare. We do not believe
they will. II the Southern dinner lias a
better Iriend in public life than Senator
Vance we don't know who he is.
Then the Statcsville Landmark says:
We have infinite faith in the intelli
gence, manhood and patriotism of the
North Carolina larmer qualities oitcn
tested and in which they have never been
found wanting and, while we become
sick at heart nnd iniliunant at the efforts
of designing men to duc them, we reflect
again that their good sense is their sure
protection against those who, professing
friendship for them nnd seeking to stir
them up against old friends, are only
trying to make tools of them, and that
their proverbial conservatism is an
assurance that they will do nothing
And so it is with every paper. They
have only words of condemnation for
the uncalled for attack of the Farmer.
Tint Manufacturers' Record ol Inly 1'.'
says: " 1 lie past week nus ticen a notcu
one for the activity in the organization
of gigantic industrial enterprises, the
magnitude of which overshadows the
many smaller concerns that would oth
erwise command much attention. In
Alabama, Tredegar lends with n contract
for the building there of a great furnace
and steel plant to include rolling mill,
steel mill, &c., and to employ, when fully
completed, nlmut 3,000 hands; Binning-
ham has a new $1,000,000 coal and iron
making company. Georgia shows for
the week a $150,000 ore mining com
pany, a $100,000 land nnd lumber com
luny, a $:10,000 clothing manufacturing
company, n n,ooo,ooo goiu mining
company, and $-10,000 phosphate mining
company to operate in Florida. At
Ocaln, Flit., an $800,000 company has
been organised to mine and manufacture
fertilisers. Kentucky had for the week a
$2,0011,000 iron and coal company and
a $.r00,000 laud improvement company.
In Southwest Virginia the great activity
previously reHirtcd continues. At Rich
lands Pennsylvania capitalists will build
$.'(10, (i0 iron piic work and at Radford
iron men from the Slate will erect two
furnaces, a rolling mill, bar, bolt and rail
mill, &c, while at Ivnnhoc a $500,000
company will build extensive xinc works.
While these great concerns arc being put
into shniic the organization of smaller
enterprises, such as woodworking milts,
brick yards, ice lactones, foundries and
machine shops, goes steadily on. In every
direction there is solid growth and In
creasing prosicrity, based on the utili
sation of the unequalled natural re
snurrcr of this favored section. The sec
ond half of IH'.MI bids fair to show a de
gree of activity that would have been
deemed almost impossible even twelve or
eighteen months ago."
CoNOMitsHMAN F.wnrt, of Asheville, says
he is opiKiscd to the national election

pass it, of course I shall not desert ny
