THURSDAY, APRIL, 14, 189S.
GO AND SEE.
There are many honest Democrats in
Virginia who doubt the truth of the charges
made against the Democratic machine as
to its fraudulent practices at elections in
the State. There are other Democrats
who know the charges are true, but who
pretend to doubt them. With this latter
class it is useless to talk or argue. With
the first class a sense of justice may be
aroused and the truth ultimately brought
home. To the honest Democrats, those
who favor fair elections, we say, "go and
see," that is investigate the facts, andyou
will find that the Democratic party in
Virginia is in the hands of an unscrupu?
lous machine that will sacrifice every prin?
ciple of right that it may continue to hold
The present election law was originated
for fraudulent purposes. It was so con
constructed that there would be no hope
for any opposition, no matter how power
erful, when the machine wished to succeed.
This law not only gives unlimited oppor?
tunities for the party in power to perpe?
trate any conceivable measure of fraud,
but it extends an earnest invitation for
The electoral board of each county
and city consists of three persons, who are
elected every two years by the Legisla?
ture. All the electoral boards in the
State are composed of Democrats. These
men meet in secret and select the election
officers for their respective counties and
cities without any regard for the rights or
wishes of the minority parties. In many
of the counties nearly all the election offi?
cers are Democrats, at numbers of pre
cints no Republicans 'being selected to
share in receiving or counting the ballots
of the voters.
The electoral boards also appoint the
registrars, and some are appointed who do
not hesitate to perjure themselves and
commit the most flagrant outrages upon
the rights of registered voters. They are
authorized by law to make lists of voteis,
claiming that they have removed or
died.and after posting these lbts.strike the
names they embrace from the registration
books. The lists are prepared and posted,
and a person selected for the purpose im?
mediately tears down and destroys the
posted lists. When election day comes
the voter appears to vote and is informed
that his name has been posted and after?
wards stricken from the registration books,
rlhere is no remedy. The election law has
been made to shield such crimes and the
Democratic machine laughs at the pro?
tests of the voters who have been cheated.
Under the election law, after the polls
are closed, the election officers are em?
powered io go into a room where no one
except themselves are permitted to enter,
and, unobserved by representatives of the
opposition party, count the ballots.
What a 6plendid chance to stuff the ballot
boxes? The law was framed for that
purpose; and in many sections of the
State the opportunity is not lost.
To show that the intention of the ma?
chine when the Australian ballot system
was adopted was to cheat and defraud,
every conceivable device was used by elec?
toral boards, in many of the counties, to
design the ballots so as to confuse the vo
ters. German text and other peculiar
faces of type were used in printing the
names of candidates, and the names were
not printed uniformly on the ballots,
were shifted in positions in as many ways
as possible. Besides, no voter had an op?
portunity to know who were candidates
until one of the ballots was placed in his
hands by the election judges ; and in nu?
merous instances men had been induced
to let their names be put upon the ballots
for the purpose of deceiving and confus?
ing voters. These names were selected so
as to have them resemble the name of the
Republican candidate as nearly as possi?
ble. In the last election for members of
the legislature the electoral board of Cum?
berland county fraudulently and inten
tionly left the name of the Republican
candidate for the House of Delegates off
tne ballot. There was no method discov?
ered to rectify the wrong or punish the
If any Democrat doubts that the election
machine has been corruptly used let him
go to the Tenth Congressional district and
learn how Yost was defrauded in 1894 by
German text ballots and other devices,
how he was cheated in 1896 by having the
returns improperly made out in one of the
counties of the district. Then let him go
to the Fourth Congressional district and
ascertain the disgraceful methods that
were used by the election machine to cheat
Thorp at two successive elections out of
hie seat in Congress. Let him then go to
the city of Petersburg and find that in the
last Pre3idental election theo fficers, 30 in
numbsr, were machine Democrats, of the
eighteen judges of election eleven of them
held city offices. It is claimed that thej
Democratic party represents the wealth
and intelligence of Virginia, yet these
thirty officer.-", all white Democrats, were
assessed for taxes on personal property in
1896 941*83 in the aggregate. Sixteen of
the thirteen were returned delinquent,
and all together paid a tax of $18.48.
These are kind of irresponsible persons
that are used in the black belt to stuff bal?
lot boxes and falsify returns. They have
been used for years to do this work, the
service of some of them dating
back to 1888, w hen they so changed the
returns in the Fourth district that the Vir?
ginia electoral vote was taken from
If the honest Democrat still doubts let
him go to Richmond and lind how regis?
trars in that city have purged the registra?
tion books in the manner above described,
and how hundreds, yes thousands of vo?
ters have l>een cheated, l^et htm go to
Smithers precint and be told how a judge
of election at that precinct Btufled tbe bal?
lot box, was punished by a nominal tine of
$10.00 and has been rewarded with ollice
ever since by the Democratic party. Let
him go to Shoemaker's precinct. Then on
to Norfolk and Elizabeth City counties.
In fact he can go to every district in the
State and tind enough fraud to open his
eyes. Here in the Ninth Congressional
district let him go to Swords Creek, in
Russell county, or to Abingdon in Wash?
ington county, and to many other places
in the district and he rill find that cheat?
ing has been done. He will find tliat it is
increasing each succeeding election, that a
moral tone, in connection with election
methods, is springing up that is making
our State di*=gustiugin the eyes of the out?
The Democratic machine is responsible
for these conditions. It originated the
election law. It has instructed its tools
how to operate it. It is conscienceless, and
is not only dragging the State in the mire
but bringing the party it holds by the throat
into disrepute. "Go and see'' if what we
say is not true.
THAT'S WHAT THEY GET FOR iT.
We find the following interesting para-'
graph in Senator Butler's paper, the
Raleigh Caucasian :
Hon, W. .T. Bryan, in a letter to the
chairman of the Democratic State Com?
mittee of Colorado, urging the importance
of co-operation and warning them against
the efforts of the gold men in disguise to
prevent it, says:
"Where the gold Democrats are nu?
merically strong, they will insist upon
ignoring the Chicago platform, but where
they are numericallv weak they will pro?
fess to accept tbe platform but will oppose
every plan that is calculated to bring suc?
cess to the platform."
This states the situation exactly. In
this State the gold Democrats did not bolt
because they are not numerically strong
enough to do damage in that way, but
they stay on the inside opposing, as Mr.
Bryan says "every plan that is calculated
to bring success to the platform." This is
not all. They have assistants and allies
among men and papers who claim to be
strong supporters of Bryan. They oppose
co-operation for the same reason that all
the goldbugs and monopolists oppose it.
They are wolves in sheep's clothing. Be?
ware of them."
And that is the reward for "party regu- j
larity !" When the Chicago platform was
promulgated, some Democrats who did'
not believe in it refused to give it their
?support, and openly opposed it. Others
said that while they did not' believe'
in free silver and other doctrines of the
platform, for the sake of "party regularity"
they would stay on the inside of the or?
ganization and support the ticket. They
were patted on the back at the time and
commended, but now they are denounced
as spies and traitors.
This is in proof of the assertion thi t has
been made time and again in these col?
umns that there is no place in the Demo?
cratic party, as now constituted, for the
man who does not believe in the free coin?
age of silver, and he is not wanted. The
party is wide open to any and to all,
whether they be Democrats, Populists or
Republicans, who are sincere in their ad?
vocacy of free coinage, but the doors are
virtually closed against all who are op?
posed to it.?Richmond Times.
Here is an admission by the "Times"
that "the Democratic party, as now con?
stituted" has closed its doors against all
men who do not believe in the free, un?
limited coinage of silver. It is a fact that
the Bryanites in Virginia, as well as else?
where, cordially hate the Gold Democrats.
There hostility to that class is greater than
to Republicans. Why then will the
"Times", the Petersburg "Index-Appeal"
and so many Democrats in the State, who
have a perfect horror of Bryanism and
Populism, still work to keep the Bryanites
in control of Virginia.?
It is perfectly evident that the Gold
Democrats will have to act as mudsills far
the Democratic-Populistic combination in
Virginia, or help to defeat it and rescue
the State from the free silver fraudulent
election party. The time has about gone
for Democrats in the State to contend
for a sound currency and honest elections
and continue to march with the organiza?
tion which is favorable to neither.
OUR EXPORT TRADE.
The free traders have always asserted
that a protective tariff would destroy our
trade of merchandise with other
Since the Dingley bill became a law the
record has shown how mistaken were the
contentions of the low tariff advocates.
American goods are now going into the
chief markets of the world and not only
competing 2with but triumphing over
others. The people of the United States
have learned more promptly and complete?
ly the uses of steam, electricity and ma?
chinery than any other nation. A great
advantage has been gained in that way.
An American electrical firm recently got a
contract to equip underground roads in
London* Our manufacturers are sending
steel rails to India and Japan, pig iron lo
Great Britain, locomotives to Russia,
China and Japan. There has been an
enormous increase in our exports of all
kinds of manufactured articles since the
Dingley tariff went into effect.
THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.
On Monday at 2:06 President McKinley
sent his message on Cuba to Congress.
The message was about what the public,
from bints thrown out, was expecting.
The President declares that "the war in
Cuba must stop"and asks Congress lo give
him authority to "use euch military and
naval forces as may be necessary for these
He advises against the recognition of the
independence of the island,at least a recog?
nition of the present insurgent govern?
ment which rests on so unstable a foun?
Fluni what we have been able to gather
from the message the President is in favor
of aimed intervention if necessary, but of
allotting the people of Cuba after peace is
restored to the island to choose their own
form of government and rulers.
In these positions he is correct.
He places upon Congress the responsi?
bility of saying whether there shall bean
immediate declaration of war. In that he
is also right. It is his evident purpose to
make Spain yield, but without being hasty
or rash. If there is to be an end of all
effort to maintain peace and secure what
is desired for Cuba without war let Con?
gress so declare.
If you will notice, the most of those
persons who seem to take delight in abus?
ing "the money power" are men who love
a dollar betler than anything on earth.
They love that dollar because it is a dollar,
not on account of the good it can accom?
plish in the world; and they envy those
persons who have accumulated more of the
filthy lucre than they have gathered.
Hence their hatred for "the money power."
Thk reaction in favor of President Mc
Kinley's position was truly wonderful. You
never hear even a whisper of criticism
from any one who stops to think.
The American people have shown a tre?
mendous amount of patience, a great proof
of their superior intelligence and civiliza?
A Tribute to His Courage from a
Memphis "Commercial Appeal" (Dem.)
While we differ with him, it is not easy
to withhold admiration from speaker
Reed. He has been in many tight places
and has had many close calls during bis
occupance of the chair but in disposing of
the resolutions introduced by leader Bailey,
recognizing Cuban belligerence, he wa':
pat to a severer test than ever before.
That he rose equal to the emergency dem?
onstrated his great force of charactt r. A
weaker man would have failed.
His interpretation of a privileged ques?
tion was no doubt correct, but the temper
of the House and of the country is such
that it lequired a rock of Gibraltar to
withstand. Reed's own party associates
were clamorous for war. The platform of
his party was pledged to it, practically.
Delay and procrastination had inflamed
the min i of Congress. The Democrats
were anxious to force the Republicans to
show their bands. Republicans were
belligerent and tin eatening revolt and in?
subordination. The galleries were wild,
cheering for the friends of Cuba and hiss?
ing those who opposed recognition. It
was a time of great excitement. A whirl?
wind of feeling, a simoon of passion, was in
progress, and when Mr. Bailey concluded
his speech a crisis was on that is seldom
paralled in parliamentary bodies. But Reed
arose and received the full force of the
tempest without wincing. He rallied bis
forces and scourged into submission those
who had threatened to revolt. He eolidi
tied bis party ranks and defeated the res?
olutions by a practically united party vote.
There is perhaps not another man in
Congress who would have been able to do
as Reed did. The Speaker is surely a
strong character, a great force.
Philadelphia Kecord. ]
"Free Cuba" sounds well; but bow is
the freedom of the island to be accom?
plished ? Surely not by transferring the
Government from one tyranny into the
hands of another! There bave been no
worse despotisms in the world's history
than the dictatorships of some of the vic?
torious revolutionary chieftains of Spanish
America?a recent and flagrant example
having been that of the lately assassinated
Dictator Barrios, of Guatemala. How are
the American people to know whether the
the ride of Gomez would be more welcome
to the inhabitants of Cuba than is the
Government of General Blanco and his
autonomist secretaries ? To impose the
regime of the insurgent chieftains upon
the people of Cuba without their consent
would be oppression, not liberation.
It is a first principle of politics recog?
nized by the American nation that no
Government has a right to exist except
by the consent of the governed. If we
should undertake to free Cuba the ob?
vious course for us to pursue after the
withdrawal of the Spanish forces from the
island would be to submit to the test of a
popular vote the question as to what sort
of Government should be established in
place of the Spanish regime. The will of
the majority must prevail. The mouth
warriors of the Cuban Junta, however,
have declared themselves opposed to a
plebiscite, We must set up the "Repub?
lic of Cuba," or we shall be met by the
insurgents with fixed bayonets and our
troops chased out of tbe island ! Since
Cuban freedom could not be achieved,
however, without the shedding of Ameri?
can blood, the people of the United States
would bave as good a right to say by what
aiethod Free Cuba should be established
*s have the ink-slingers of tbe Junta.

Protection Sentiment in the South.
The Protection sentiment is no longer
looked upon in the South as treason to
Democratic principles. Governor Culber
son of Texas, w ho is a candidate for the
United States Senate, in a recent state?
ment, intended as a reply to Senator
Mill's assertions on this subject, says that
the advocacy of duties on imports of raw
materials has not always been considered
un-Democratic. On the contrary, he
shows that the Tariff of lS4fl, known as the
Walker Tariff, and considered a safe Dem?
ocratic Tariff standard, placed duties on
most of the raw materials. The State of
Texas, it now appears, will be represented
in the Senate by a man having broad
views on the Protective question, and thus
add to the thirty or forty votes from the
South cast for Protection in the recent
legislation on - that subject.?Oswego

Savannah "News" (Dem.) .
Here in the South there would have to
be great sacrifices if war should come and
it should be a long Kar. Our dependence
is largely upon our foreign commerce. If
that should be interfered with greatly our
people would become acquainted with
hard times. Still, we do not. find that
there is any sentiment in any part of the
South that is against war under any cir?
cumstances. The resolutions adopted by
our commercial bodies yesterday mean
nothing like that. If Congress should to?
day or to-morrow decide in favor of war
the South would be found ready to bear
her nur share of the burdens of it, ami in
the army and navy her sons would make
records as glorious as those of the sons of
any other section of the country.
