Sambo's Vote a Matter of Interest Jost
Now Novel Ret.
RALEIGH, N". C, Oct. 12. The negroe
are unusually reticent just now on the
subject of the election. The third party
managers are assiduously cultivating their
Totes, and being the object of the solicitude
of the two parties is a new sensation for
for the colored man. So he just keeps
mam. The cities and towns are the Demo
cratic strongholds this year. The third
party has tried to arouse feeling against
the townspeople among the country peo
ple. They are at work among the negroes
in the country, and are nsing the blacks
who belong to the Alliance as levers. The
negro Alliance is even more secret than the
white one, and there is cooperation between
Iepemed On Krandy and Tobacco.
There is a queer state of affairs conce-a-
ing R. Z. Linney, a Republican who is
aiding Jndge Furches, Republican noiri- 1
nee for governor, in his canvass. Two '
years ago Linney and one K. B. Jones
signed the following contract.: "If during
Harrison's administration the internal
revenue taxes on tobacco and fruit bran ly '
are abolished Jones agrees to vote the Pe- '
publican ticket, if not. IJnney agrees to
vote the Democratic ticket'" This was '
"witnessed by members of three parties and '
was registered by the retrister of deeds.
Linney is in an awkward lix. He will have
to vote for the Democratic nominees and
the Democrats are declaring that he is vio
lating the spirit of his contract by canvas-
ing for the Republicans. There was never
in this state so strange a complication.

ST. PAUL, Oct. 13. The action of the
Democrats and Populists iu several parts
of the state yesterday makes plain what
the four Weaver electors were put on the
Democratic national ticket for. At Roches
ter two candidates for the legislature were
nominated by the Populists, and the Dem
ocrats promptly indorsed them. The same
thing was done in three other counties of
the state. The idea is to secure the defeat

They Are Not Kxactly Complimentary
Washington-, Oct. 13. Bishop II. ?.
Turner, of Atlanta, Ga., was asked Tues
day evening what incentivethe colored peo
ple had to support the Democratic partj in
the late election of that state. He repl.ed
that there was no special incentive as far as
the Democraiic party was concerned. A '
large number of the colored people did vote
for the re-election of Governor Northen
who had no interest in the Democratic
ticket, and indeed many voted for hkn
alone. Governor Northen was the first
southern governor, said the bishop, who
bad openly spoken fouj. against lynching ne
groes, and ha1 dared to offer a reward for
the capture of that class of inhuman brutes
who were making our country a hiss and a
by-word throughout the glolie.
IXM-sn't Get "Onto" the Home Kule Idea. 1
Inasmuch as the position taken by the
governor has leen productive of good re
sults many colored people felt that their
votes were due him under tne circum
stances. "This great nation is too weak,
worthless, or mean to put down these mid
night mobs who break jails and murder
innocent men by hundreds, and if God has
put it in the heart of one Christian Demo
cratic governor to try to stem the torrent
of blood and slaughter he shall have my
vote." Bishop Turner says he still favors
African emigration for such of his people
as have souls and backbones. He sees no
manhood future here for the negro; ti.at
the colored people will never be respected
until they found a nation and intelligently '
run tue same.
