TiE NEW Napoleonic appell--"Glen

SECETAnY SElCMAN, the other day,
inl his speech said (hat the cotton crop
last year was 1,800,000,000 pounds. Ile
had evidently not heard of the latest
style of measurctleut.
General Ewing's Speech.
General Ewing, in response to a
serenade at his home a few evenings
ago, opened the )eIocratic Campaign
In Ohio ill a vigorous speech. 1"e
devoted the greater part to the discus
sion of finalce, aild concluded by 1an
appeal for f'ee elctions. lie attacked
the arguments of Secretary Shermaln111,
contending that resumption had been
effected only by an increaso ill tile
public debt owing to the purchiaso of
gold with bonds, and chargincg that,
thirteen millions had been spent ill
double interest for three months oil tie
bonds exchaniged. lie claimed that
gold prices are fifty per cent. less thanl
bi-metalic prices, and that dierefbre
the bond-holders and creditors. re lity
per cent. richer and l( the taxpavers
correspondingly poorer than be)for1e.
The four per cent. are really six and ai
half per ceit. bolnds, because they are
exempt from about. two and a hit per
cent. taxation. Since six and a iit'
per cent. Is a very landsoile profit
these days, the evil hais resulted that
Capital halls beenl diverted from indlis
tries and put into bonds, amid hence the
general stagnation 01 business, lie
Opposed na11tional limks f1orl stveral
.rCasons, amlioig them because ihey
base their circilition on bonds., and
their interest reciires that. the debt,
shall not be diiiiinished. Were there
no debt there could he no bonds and
110 latiol a' a,baks. le wishles !
bank notes withdrawn andl([ legal tenl
ders substituted, and the debt paid oil'
as rapidly as pos.sible. Since the war,
the Jepublicans have collected over
four thousand imillioi dollars and have
paid but five hundred iilliois of the
debt. Much of tile rest, has been
squandered. The Democrats have re
dutced expenses eighty-live million
dollars ill the past. fo0ur years, despite

To the Jiditor's of Thse News and

"Wlinlngt on, Col umubia and August a

reader's within tile State the conltext
willl exhibit and1( corr'ect tile error as to
the unamne of the railvay in quiestioni
but because of thle extenlsive circlaCl*
tion and10 influeintal charac'ater. of your

of us we r'ecognilze the efficiency of'
your criticism and wvill be glald to htear'
thoem. Yours truly, A. PorE,
U. TI. A., W. C. and A. II. 1R.
The News and Courier may have
blundered about the Road, but it was
niot 80 fir wrong about the man. Up
to D)ecember, 1878, the Charlotte, Co..
lumbia and Augusta Railroad had
been for yewrs in the han11ds of the
Souther'n Security Company, and( durl
lng that time Mr. A. Pope was thle
general freighlt agent both of the Char'
lotte and the of Wihnington Road.it
was during his8 admnisetratin thlat the
outrageous dIscrimInatIons againejf
Winnlsboro were made; and tile re
Als~als to shiIp cotton over the South
darohnla Rai11load, and to receive
reghmt iln Columbhia or Charlotto sent
by somec other than the AtlantIo Coast
route, were, as~ WE) are Informed, tihe
acets of Mr. Pope. Indeed it was Mr.
Popie's admhulstratIin thlat seriously!

i"~uOld county, .It Is M'o n44o.

th~of(e Char'lotte Ioad, wh lw draw.
ing pay flioin its treairy, were active
ly enguged in diverting trade 'an
travel from it to the Wilmingtoi
Road. As al evidence of this Is th
ftet. that the earnhgs of the Charlott
Road inereased seventy thousand dol
lars during tle first (Iuarter of it
muanlagemlenit, by the presenit of1ieialt9
We feel cohstrainled to say tiat in on
respect the present, mi alagers of th
road are incomparably aiad c
their predecessors. They grind ti
noses of the Shippers foi the benletit
the Road. The forier. darnfuged th
customers an(1 the Road alike. Th
The Charlotte Road possessed so man;
iatiral advantilges ove its Wilmin

despite all the advantages given it wa

With the Charlotte R (oad, we will sa;

But as Ie invites tle crit icisl of th
