Something was raid in the late cam
paign, if we rightly remember, about
"coercion." Mr. Bryan, if we are not
mistaken, had a great deal to say about
the coercion of laboring men by their
, emploj ers, dwelling with unctuous elo
quence upon the distress and hard-hips
' with which the honest, hard-working
masses were threatened by brutal and
tyrannical capitalists, if they did not stifle
. their convictions and wrong their con
sciences by -voting against him and for
McKinley. He seemed to be very much
. exercised about it; said free institutions
were going to pieces and all our liberties
about to be struck down, and that the
' only way to save anything from the
. wreck was for the workingmen to refuse
' to be coerced. And the only way under
heaven to prove to prove to the world
. that they were not coerced was to walk
up to the pollsrinan-fashion, and vote for
Bryan. No workingman could vote for'
McKinley unless he had been coerced.
- That eminent statesman, Senator Jones,
' of Arkansas, chairman of the Popocratic
National Committee, took the same view
of the situation, and, if possible, took it
harder. Altgeld agreed with both of
them, and so did Debs and Coxey and
- Sovereign and the other earnest and sin
cere persons who could not under s tat. d
how anybody could disagree with them
on so important a question, except from
cowardice and coercion. And the vocif
erous Sovereign has lately explained
Bryan's defeat by a sort of official decla
ration that two million voters were co
erced into voting for McKinley.
"We do not remember, however, that
any of these champions of personal lib
erty and foes of capitalistic oppression
ever mentioned the name of a single em
ployerwhohad threatened or even hinted
at coercion; or of a single workingman
who complained of being coerced. In
the absence of anything like tangible tes
timony upon the subject, it is not strange,
perhaps, that outside the Popocratic Com
mittee rooms and the inner circle of pa
triots conducting the campaign there was
no manifestation of public indignation,
no uprising, no unusual excitement. On
the contrary, the general impression ap
peared to be that free institutions were
not imperiled, that the liberty of citizens
was not threatened, but that everybody,
employers and employed, capitalists and
laborers, would vote precisely as they
pleased, uninfluenced by anything except
their own political opinions and their
views of civic duty. And now that it is
all over, no intelligent man believes that
there was ever any foundation for the
loose animadversions of Bryan, the reck
less assertions of Jonts, or the wild and
sweeping charges of Altgeld, Sovereign
and the rest. Nor does any one now
doubt that their indignation was simu
lated, and that they were all the time
perfectly aware that they had not a soli
tary fact upon which to base their false
and ridiculous statements. It was a de
liberate attempt on their part to impose
upon public credulity.
But, speaking of coercion, what's this
they are doing down in the Popocratic
S ate of North Carolina? The Charlotte
Observer of November 15th publishes
under the heading, " Negro Politicians
Can't Rent Farms," the following item
of local news:
"The farmers in every township in
Mecklenburg county are organizing to
protect themselves from the influences
wielded by the n?gro political leaders.
They refuse to rent land to these negroes,
and are putting white men in therr places.
In Providence township over sixty land
owners have joined the organization,
and the negro leaders find it impossible
to rent an acre of ground. The organi
zation Is also in good working order in
Steel Creek and Sharon townships."
What do the gentlemen who have been
howling themselves hoarse and red in the
face over "coercion" call this action of
the North Carolina farmeis? There is
no guesswork about this; no loose state
ment or empty talk. Here is a specific
fact. What does it signify ? Is it coer
cion? This organization of North Caro
lina farmers means business political
business. What have the negro politi-"
ciana done except exercise their own free
dom of choice in an election ? It is for
this reason, solely and avowedly, that the
farmers refuse to rent land to them, so
that they "find it impossible to rent an
acre of ground." Doesn't this involve
hardship and distress for this class of
workingmen? Just such hardship and
distress only that it is real and actual
instead of fanciful and imaginary as
Bryan pumped his emotions over and
- Jonea thundered his indignation about?
True, it ia not an attempt to in flue tee
their political action by coercion or in
timidation it is too late for that but it
is punishment for having exercised their
liberty of choice and voted according to
their convictions. Here's a field for Mr. I

We publish in another column the re
port of the address of Dr. Curry, deliver
ed before the students of Shaw Universi
ty on Thursday of la3t week, as printed
in the News And Observer. There are
some things in the address which we
approve, and some to which we desire to
enter our mott solemn dissent, and none
more so than the sentiment that "a man
who cannot read his bal'ot, ought nt t to
be allow d to put it in the box." If by
that he meant to say that the people who
were so unfortunate as not to be allowed
to attend scho 1 prior to 1806, should not
be given the right to vote, we disagree in
toto with him about that matter. This
is the same sentiment that was expressed
by the Democratic party in 1866 in oppo
sition to the plan of the Republican party
to enfranchise the colored people, but
wi h all of the broad views that have
been claim d for Dr. Curry, we had
thought that he was progressive along
this line as well as other lines. If any
State requires an educational qualifica
tion for its voters, it should first provide
adequate and available means for their
education, unless it proposes to do like
South Carolina make the test solely for
the purpose of .disfranchising colored
voters. For years the la ws of North Car
olina would not allow a colored man to
be given educational advantages, and
now to pass a law saying that the very
men, who by law, were prohibited from
learning, should now be prohibited from
voting because they are unlearned, would
be inflicting not only a legal wrong, but
a moral wrong upon that class of people.
We do not believe that Dr. Curry, after
seriously cons;dering this matter in all
its pbeses, would advocate this disfran
chisement. We cannot believe that the
students applauded that particular sen
tence in Dr. Curry's address. Dr. Curry
seems to have stirred up a Democrat, too,
in his remarks, as the following letter to
the News and Observer will show:
Faison, N. ft, Nov. 21, 1896.
To the Editor: I am surprised that
you, Dr. Bittle and others should ap
prove of Dr Curry's address at Shaw
University. He asks why the negroes do
not go North with his friends instea'of
staying Sb'Uth among his enemies? That
X incendiary doctrine. The South is not
an enemy to the negro. Look at the
schools and asylums they have taxed
themselvts to build for the negroes. Dr.
Curry also pays no man should vote un
less he can read the ballot. That would
disfranchise a number of whi:e people.
I am in favor of education, but that kind
of talk is not good for North Carolina
people. W. E. Hill.

At a meeting of the colored Republi
cans of Hickory township, held with the
McKinley-II .bart and Russell Club, on
November 16, 1896, the following pream
ble and resolutions were read and unan
imously adopted :
Whereas, at the last election, held on
November 3d, 1896, certain men in this
county P. M. Hilderbrand, A. C. Hil
der brand, A. B. Hilderbrand who have
been calling themselves Republicans,
who for days and weeks before the elec
tion did engage in going over Catawba
county, trying by every means in their
power to defeat good and true Republi
cins who were candidates on our ticket,
and for whom all good Republicans pro
posed to vote, thereby endangering the
success of the fusion ticket, and openly
boasting of their intention to defeat the
ticket; some of these men have since
said that they regretted that they did not
defeat the whole county ticket, thereby
showing that they P. M. Hilderbrand,
A. C. Hilderbrand and A. B. Hilder
brand wished and worked for Demo
cratic success, and n .it Republican vic
tory: and whereas, Stndy A. Smith,
Robert Wilfong and David Barber, col
ored men of this town, did aid Demo
crats and not Republicans by voting with
the Democrats: therefore,
Resolved by the colored Republicans of
Hickory township, That we will no lon
ger affiliate in conventions or in meetings
of Republicans with the said P. M. Hil
derbrand, A. C. Hilderbrand, A. B. Hil
derbrand, Smdy A. Smith, Robert Wil
fong, or David Barber, until their deeds
as Republicans prove them to be Repub
licans and not Democrats; we look upon
any man or set of men who attempts to
break up the Republic in party to which
we are allied and bound, by electing Dem
ocrats to office instead of true Republi
cans, as foes to our party and we will no
longer affilbve with such men, or recog
nize them as R publicans worthy of our
trust and confidence, etc.
Resolved 2d, That a copy of these res
olutions be furnished the Hickory Press,
Hickory Mercury, Piedmont Sun, States
ville, N. C, and the Raleigh Gazette,
with request to publish the same.
C. O. Crowell, Secretary.
Dr. J. L M. Curry, agent of the Pea
body and the Slater funds paid his an
nual visit to Shaw University, the 19ch
instant, and spoke during the morning to
the students and a company of invited
citizens. Dr. Cnrry had come direct from
Hampton school, in Virginia, the first of
the schools for the education of the ne
gro youth, and spoke to those who called
to see him of the good work being d ne
there. Those of the whit s present during
the morning were: Ex-Chief Justice
Shepherd, Dr. James McKee, dean of the
Medical College; President E. A. Alder
man, Hon. R. H. Battle, Dr. H. B. Bit
tie, Dr. K7P. Battle, Prof. L. D. Howell,
Dr. A. W. Knox, President John E Ray,
Dr. W. I. Royster, Dr. Hubert Roystpr,
Hon. John 0. Scarborough, Dr. A. W.
Goodwin, Rev. J. W. Carter, D. D., State
Treasurer Worth, M. Bowps, Wm. Simp
son, W. J. Young, J. WV Bailey, Joseph
E. Pogue, W. H. Rand, Rev. Dr. Skinner
and Jouepbus Daniels.
Without preliminaries, President Me
serve introduced Dr. Curry, who spoke
with power, interest and edification. He
began by stating that the Peabody fund,
available for both races, of $2,000,000, and
the Slater fund of $1,000,000 for the negro
race alone, were the chief gifts that phi
lanthropists had devoted to education,
the income alone from theee two funds.
It is an abomination, said the Doctor,
that schools that are no more than high
schools, have taken on the high-sounding
name of university. It is mist unfortu
nate for children to be placed under in
competent teachers more so if they are
ignorant and full of prejudice. I am
afraid the teachers of the colored people
have not been well informed in history,
and if so. they hamper their instruction
by prejudice At Hampton, one speaker,
with a rhetorical 11 -uiiah, said it was a
remarkable coincidence that Hampton
school was located within a few miles
of where the firtt ship, laden with 6laves,
landed in this country. I ventured to
remind this young man right there that
the first slave ships were nut fitted out
in Virginia, North Carolina or S juth C ir
olina, but; that every one of them started
out from either old England or new Eng
land not ODe from the S juth. From the
beginning of slavery, no single vessel
laden witn rum, red liquor, and red hand
kerchiefs were ever seat from the South
to Africi. The vessel which brought
negroes to this country was a great Pan
dora's box. -It was worse. Hope was
lef c in the real Pandora's box.
The greatest curse that ever afflicted
the United Slates was slavery. Tbe in
troduction of African slavery was a
clinging, prolific, and probably incurable
cunse. Dr. Curry discussed the institu
tion from the standpoint of political
economy, leaving out the moral side.
One of the chief elements in the curse of
slavery, he declared, was that it inflicted
upon the South an ignorant, stupid, un
intelligent labor, the one-crop Bystem,
bad roadf, poor school-houses, imperfect
system of education the evils of unin
ventive, unambitious labor.
Manual labor in the schools was defined
to be the most important intellectual
phenomena of to-day. From the Univer
sity up to the Kindergarten ("I mean it
that way," he said, turning to President
Alderman), there ought to be industrial
training along with academic and scien
tific. Head, heart and hand ought all to
be united and developed. If tbe South
was cursed with ignorant labor, what the
South needs is intelligent and skilled la
bor. Accuracy of judgment and eye,
along with the skill to do things, will
bring us elevation and prosperity.
"If you will go from Weldon to Wil
mington, I will venture thatyou can rind
from ten to fifty people fat every depot,
standing idly by whittling s'icks and
c he w ing tobacco. They don't know how
to do anything that requires skill. They
can't even make axe helves. A short
time ago I saw at a station in N mh C ir
oiina a bundle of axe helves, and upon
asking where they were from, I wasto'd
they had been shipped from Kansas. No
State has so magnificent a supply of
timber, and yet you buy axe helves from
Kansas, and wagons from Northern
S ates. Thanks to the enterprise of the"
Mills Wagon Ujmpanv, we have quit
that in Wake County. Editor. We have
got to get out of that.
"There's another thing we have got to
quit. We must not denounce folks who
disagree wMi us'. Some of you are hiding
yourselves behind a false name-sound
money thereby intimating that those
who honestly f a vorf re-silver, want un
bound money." Turning to Editor Dan
iels, who was present, Dr. Uurry tatd :
"In my heart of hearts and my intrust
conscience, I know you, my friend J. se
phus, are as much in favor of 'sound
money' as I am, though w e do not agrea
as to the best way to get it.
"The election having passed, let us see
if we cannot do something for lifting up
our people. Free education is ten thou
sani time more important than free flil
ver. I affirm that local taxation for
public -schools and adequate revenues are
more important than an income tax, or
any other method of taxation. I'll go
further: The stamp and superscription of
a good, honest character is worth more
than the stamp of every government that
may be put on gold; the ratio of theedu
cated to the illiterate than any ratio be
tween gold and silver.
"Spakingof illiteracy. North Carolina
is too low in the scale 37.5 per cent, of
the population being unable to read or
write. Of all the States, Louisiana is the
lowest; Si'Uth Carolina, Nr-w Mexico,
Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and North
"What's the use of talking jingo and
getting ready to shoulder a muzket in
order to liberate Armenias (for whom we
are not responsible), or to help Cuba (to
annex which would be evil to us) when
it is impossible to arouse our own people
to rid themselves o' the perils of igno
rance? We have 13 000,000 voters I
wish we could get into all minds the true
function of citizenship. In Europe, the
pword makes or prevents revolution.
Here it is the ballot. Some men, who do
not appreciate the duties of citizenship,
eay, 'I have a Tight to vote as I please.'
"I don't believe in ballot-box stuffing,
coercion, falsa registration. Political
wrong is like moral wrong. I don't be
lieve a man can scatter arrows and fire
brands of death and then sty 'I have a
right to vote as I p'ease.' He votes for
his wife, children, neighbors and coun ry.
Sometimes with the ballot is deposited
ignoiance, prejud ce or revenge. I don't
believe a man has anv right to do it.
doit believe A MAN WHO CANNOT
(Applause among the students.)
The Baptists believe in individual in
terpretation of the Bible, but it does not
mean that a man shall not bring to the
study or tne tsinie an honest mind, and
not read into it his ignorance or prejud ice
oi preconceived opinions. Giving the
ballot ought not to mean turning over
governments to ignore nee and prejudice
or the scums and outscouring of the
cities and calling that a free Republic.
The government of a free people means
an enlightened citizenship. .No man with
chains of prejudice forged on his arms is
a good citizen.
The most remarkable thing I know of
was the emancipation of the neero.
rejoice in it. I thank God that there isn't
a slave from the Atlantic to the Pacfic or
from the lakes to the gulf. I hear some
times some talk about your folks want
ing to go into hotels, theatres and the
like. I will say to you : Be skilfull. If
von have skill and intellicence. vnn will
be respected. It is making the best of
ourselves that makes tbe true man.
Some white people complain that the
negro has not mad progress. Individu
ally, some of tbem have not. As a race,
they have made extraordinary progress
" I have this idea of patriotism : I love
my home first, my kindred next, then
my neighbor, then my State and then my
country. If af cer taking them in, I have
any room left, 1 11 take in Armenia.
"I don't believe much in the idea of
having the United States flag over our
schools. 1 d like to know what the Urn
ted States government has done for our
public schools in Noroth Carolina to de
mand that the flag should hang over
them. It never gave a cent to North
Carolina schools, except the A. and M.
Colleges. It is a deception and a fraud
to put the flag there. It is tbe State that
gives you education.
"I don't know but two things I'd
shoulder my musket and fight for : 1. To
prevent the re enslavement of the negro;
2. To ngbt a union of church and State?.
" JiiVery now and then some white peo
pie become frightened because they think
negroes are increasing so rapidly that
they will outnumber the whites after
awhile. The negroes are increasing but
relatively not so fast as the whites. One
of the evils in the negro population is
that it is congested into a small area.
" I never could understand why the
negro population remains so compact in
tbe south instead of becoming scattered
all over the Union. Tbe Northern men
freed the negro. Why is it the negro
does not go North to be with his friende(?)
instead of staying in the South among his
enemies(?). Why isn't the congestion of
negro population in Ohio or Minnesota?
The trend, of the negro population is to
mass itself in the Southwest toward the
Gulf, and instead of deflecting and going
to West Virginia, Massachusetts or Con- !
necticut the population goes Southwest.
The centre of the population in this'
country is in Southeast Indiana. The cen
tre of the negro population is Rome, Ga
they go toward the Gulf of Mexico and
the Mississippi river.
" ine tendency or population generally
is to go to the great cities. The census
shows that this is nbt true of the negro.
The census also shows that there is a
steady increase of attendance of the ne
grnea ia the public schools.
inese are t-ome of the thoughts in a
singularly felicitous and frank address,

A High and Gay Time In Lonisbnrg A
Regular Jollification Celebration
among the Republicans Men, Women
and Children Turned Out A Perfectly
Harmonious Affair Over the (fraud Re

ber. On Friday of last week the Republi
cans of Franklin county celertiei the
grand vie ory gained by the Republican
party on the 3J day of November, both
in the State and the nation. - It was cer
tainly a meeting of j y. Mea, women
and children were pr. sent tr m all over
the county nearly 2.000. Axut 200
men in the procession were mounted and
woresaahes. Trie affiirwas under the
leadership of Messrs. J. F. Jordan, B. H.
R dgerson, I. Green, M. Nicholson and
otheis. We arrived on 1 he noon train,
and was requested to represent the hon
orable James II. Young, who had bsen
invited and was expected to be present
to deliver a speech, but vcai prevented
from being present on account of having
gono to Wilmington nn busnes4.
We were driven from the dpot in
company with Mr. J. N. Perry (who is
the newly elected Coroner) to the court
house green, where the large crowd was
in waiting. Tne Gazette man, W. S.
Mitchell, was introduced to represent
Hon. J. II. Young, which be did. M- s-irs.
J. F. Joi dan, M. Nicholson and I. Green
followed with short sj e ches. Two brass
bands furnished music for the occasion.
Tne people were much disappointed in
the failure of Mr. Young to arrive.
We were pleased lo meet the following
persons at the meeting: Messrs. J. F.

We were sorry to find Mr. W. B. Con
way sick and confined to his room. Capt.
Harry Waitt is still that strong friend to
the Gazette that he ever was. His
place of business, which is a first-class
sample room, is headquarters for every
b dy who is looking tor his line of go ds.
Mr. R. C. Batchelor is one of the clever
est young men in Louisburg. He is also
conducting a fine saloon on one of tbe
busie-t ntreets in the town.
Rev. J. F. Jordan and B. H. Rodger
son, we ara informed, were true friends
to the Republican and Populist ticket,
and that they did valuable campaign
work. Thee two gentlemen should not
be forgotten when the tine comes for
distribution of patronage.
Louisburg has una ergone a great change
since our last visit there. We noticed
that several new buildings have been
builtrecently and more still being erect
ed, several of them brick store houses,
including a nice hotel. Louisburg is one
of tbe most thriving little towns in tbe
S'ate, according to her size, and she has
some of the cle-verest and best citizens
theje that you will find any where. The
same can be truthfully said of both races.
The Gazette is highly spoken of in
Franklin county by nearly every one you
meet. We return many thanks to all
who honored us with cash renewals.
During our stay in Louisburg, we were
nicely taken care of liir. and Mrs. J. F.

We are under many obligations to them;
