CONSENT IGNORED
Representative Linney Describes
North Carolina Disfranchisement.
NOT A RACE QUESTION, HE DECLARES
Amendments, He Says, Were Not
Adopted by the Majority.
DISCUSSES THE RETURNS
Representative Linney of North Carolina
in response to an Inquiry of a Star reporter
today discussed at length the disfranchise
ment of the negro voter In his state. In
reply to the question, "What do you think
of the alleged democratic doctrine of gov
ernment by consent of the governed, the
guarantees of the Declaration of Independ
ence that all men are born free and equal,
as applied to the Philippines and the dis
franchisement of the negro "voter in the
south?" he said:
"North Carolina is one of the original thir
teen states. This state has been under
a constitution suited to the government of
freemen for more than three generations
past. The past of North Carolina has In
deed been glorious. Its constitution and
laws guarding the elective franchise were
Just and uniform in their spirit and admin
istration, except when the democracy con
trolled the stale. The consent of the gov
erned was the corner-stone upon which
this noble political system was built. The
last August election blasted the hopes of
the loyal citizens of North Carolina: and.
If its results are not corrected by the Ju
diciary, it has substituted the most grind
ing despotism as the yoke to be worn by
freemen of one of the original thirteen
states.
"The Bryan party in the state has re
cently declared that the constitutional
amendments were adopted by a majority of
M.<>00 votes. They never were adopted at
all by a majority of the legal electors of the
state.
DlNHertiuB tlie Return*.
"The election returns are all in. They
show that fifty counties containing, accord
ing to the census of 1800, 493,226 white and
244,730 colored population, and embracing
every county in the state that has a negro
majority, have been made by these returns
to record 57,1441 majority for the amend
mfnts. Forty counties containing 555,975
white, and only lll?,S71 colored inhabitants
gave 3,1?R? majority against the amend
ments. At least 1H> per centum of the negro
vote of the state is opposed to these amend
ments, because It was openly avowed that
these amendments would disfranchise no
white man, but would disfranchise negroes.
It seems that a majority of all the white
counties, where there was less than 20 per
cent of the population negroes, voted
against the amendments and for the entire
republican state ticket. New Hanover
county, with a registered colored population
in lWXj of over 3,<kio colored votes, gave
Governor Russell 1,300 majority over the
most brilliant and popular democrat in the
state, Cyrus B. Watson, and according to
these returns, of the last August election,
the republican ticket in the entire county
only received two votes. Halifax county
has something over/.UHiO white citizens and
- something over 19,000 colored citizens, ac
! cording to the census of lKliO. These re
turns show that the democrats received 0,280
votes, and the republicans only S!K), a ma
jority of over .".?**> in this county, which
has hitherto been overwhelmingly republi
can.
The Vote In Wllmlnicton.
Probably the most enthusiastic admirers
of Mr. Bryan in the United States are in
the city of Wilmington. The county of New
Hanover has a population ox over 25,000.
Mr. Bryan has a machine there that will
grind out for him as many votes as his
mad. blind followers desire. I should not
be at all surprised that out of the 3,190
colored laborers there, liesides four or five
j hundred white men, all of whom are for
the republican policy, will only be able, un
, less they do better than they did in the last
election, to have two votes recorded for
their choice. You may put it down in any
calculation you may make that President
McKinley will not receive a hundred votes
i In this great city of Wilmington and the
j entire county of New Hanover under the
present election law in North Carolina, al
though the President is stronger there to
day In the hearts of the people than Gov
ernor Russell was In 1S90, when he received
1,300 majority. Judge Adams, than whom
the state of North Carolina does not pos
sess a purer man. and very few. If any,
greater, was only able to have returned in
his favor in the entire county only two
votes.
Slauichter of White Votes.
"There is one peculiarly degrading result
of Bryan despotism in North Carolina by
the method employed in these large negro
counties, and, as a matter of personal se
curity. I will admit it is done righteously.
Every negro vote that is transferred from
the republican column to the democratic
when he did not vote the democratic ticket,
has the effect of slaughtering a white Mc
Kinley voter anywhere in the state. Brvan
imperialism of the most despotic and brutal
character in North Carolina is the only
power that has ever slaughtered the votes
of white men there. When the new officers
elected at the August election come in we
will have white men to govern the state, as
we now have, but, as the democrats were
in the habit of putting It in the last cam
| palgn to the republicans, "Who will be be
| hind them?" Not the white people of the
state, because almost all the white counties
| having less than 20 per cent of their popu
lation negroes, voted against them: not the
j negro, because the proposition was to dis
| franchise him
Not a Race Question.
; That was, indeed, a philosophic question
put to Mr. Bryan at Chicago?'How about
the situation in North Carolina?' He re
plied, 'Bet the race question which has
brought about so much trouble be a warn
ing to you.' It was the best thing that
could have been said, still It was a dodge
that no great man at the head of a great
party should have made. The truth Is tht
race question has very little, if anvthine
to do with it in North Carolina, it is a
wild, mad rush for office by a small minor
ity of the people of the state that has
wrought all this wickedness. To try this by
IHSTErS FOOD.
ITS VAUJK msroVERRT* IM'RING ABSENCE
OK FAMILY.
Iter. J. H. I.ey, pastor of the First M. &
Church, South Tampa. Fla., had an Interesting
experience when bis family were compelled to
leave on account of the Yellow fever. He says:
' "l4ist September, when we were Tisited by a yel
low fever scare, ray family left for an indefinite
stay in the Interior.
"I had. for atmut two years. been under cod*
slderitble physical and meutal strain, and my
nervous i?y*tem seemed to utterly give way. I bad
some excellent physicians, but tbelr remedial
agencies failed to reach the case?at I test uffordii%
only temporary relief.
"At the time the family left my attention was
called to Urape-Nuts food. Several things had led
me to l?elieve that my troubles were largely due
to Improper nutrition. The alwence of the family
gave uie a good opportunity to try the new food,
for It is |>erfectly cooked and therefore required
no work on ray part.
"So I began to make two meals a day, supper
and breakfast, on Urape-Nuts and cream or milk,
and had nothing else. I confined myself to the
proper allowance, not overrating. The Improve
ment was marked, almost from the first?my dl
gentiou was letter. sleep Itecsme regular and rest
ful. and I began to gain flesh. I could soon do
?work with less fatigue ami more satisfaction.
"My nervous system has been wonderfully Ira
proved. and today I weigh more than I have ever
weighed and find my strength equal to all the
responsibility. This is not all; on the return of
the family Urape-Nuts became a regular article
of food at the morning hour. The children ate It
and Improved.
"My wife, who was nursing an Infant, discovered
that after she began using Qrape-Xuts regularly,
for the first time In many years. Nature's food
supply for the Uaby was adequate, without resort
ing to artificial subterfuges. Urape-Nuts food not
only carried us through the .sickly season, but baj
been a Godsend to our entire family."
the touchstone of truth, If every Bryanite
in the state were placed under the solemni
ties of an oath before a Jury it would be
proven by every one of them that any ne
gro in the state legally qualified to vote will
have no difficulty in voting, and having his
vote counted as cast, provided he votes the
democratic ticket. A distinguished member
of Congress on the democratic side put this
question: 'Why is it tha* N#rth Carolina,
with a republican government and some re
publican judges, and with a large majority
of her population opposing these wicked
methods, could not have a fair ballot?' My
answer is this: Our people can protect
themselves if it were a mere question of
force. The friends of an honest ballot can
furnish more bayonet barrels than the ene
mies thereof. It Is not the numerical
strength of the Bryanites in the state that
makes the present disgraceful condition of
affairs possible, but it is the laws, placed
upon the statute books by the present dem
ocratic legislature, that have taken away
the people's rights.
A statement of some of the means em
ployed by the Bryanites of the state will
answer the question of the distinguished
democratic congressman. The republican
legislature of 1807 passed a law for the
protection of the right of public discussion.
President McKinley, In one of his messages,
calls this right 'An essential principle of
liberty.' This act of the republican legis
lature made It a disdemeanor to disturb
any school entertainment or political meet
ing. The present legislature repealed that
law, and there was no protection for this
great right of public discussion, and there
were many sections of the state in which
the turbulent disposition of the Brvanites
denied this right to those who differed with
them. In fact, the candidate for governor
of the democracy in accepting the nomina
tion alluded to the fact that Governor
Russell and Senator Pritchard were not
allowed to speak in the city of Wilmington.
W hat had that to do with the race ques
tion?
Nullification of the ConNtltation.
"I see some of the republicans north have
spoken of the action of the Bryanites of
"North Carolina as a new form of nullifica
tion. I confess I do not know what to call
it. Some of our great men, only a few,
thank God, have apparently lost their
minds. I take the following from the Char
lotte Observer, a democratic organ, of July
2(1, from what was called in the Bryan
camp the great speech of ex-Senator Han
som:
'I have seen the 15th amendment abol
ished in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama
and the other southern states. I see North
Carolina Is about to put the fifteenth
amendment in the dust forever.' Senator
Hansom is probably the equal in Intellect
of any man in the state. His age, splendid
commanding presence, and former services
to the country give his advice great
weight; besides, his splendid character
makes him a sort of darling among our
people. I have heard it suggested that he
would make a first-class bishop. Yet in the
cyclone of political fury you can discover
into what dangerous seas he drifted. -When
I registered to vote this year, I swore to
support the constitution of North Carolina
and also of the United States. I understood
that oath to embrace the original instru
ment and all the amendments thereto from
No. 1 to and including No. 15. The only
excuse that can be given for these remark
able utterances by a very great man like
General Ransom is that all great geniuses
have faults mixed with their virtues that
re-semble the flaming bush which has
thorns among its lights. In entering my
solemn protest against these excesses in
the frenzied mind of the Bryanites in the
state of my birth, the state I love above all
others, I am simply performing a duty that
I know every loyal son of the state owes
the state."
Free Silver Sentiment.
"What effect has the reaffirmation of 10
to 1 on the people of your state of both
parties; how about the free silver issue
generally?" Mr. Linney was asked.
"I am thoroughly satisfied from conver
sation with many prominent democrats and
business men that they entertain nothing
but supreme contempt for Mr. Bryan's
financial views. Many of the populists of
the state are satisfied with President Mc
Kinley's administration because of the per
capita increase In the volume of money.
The unprecedented business life and pros
perity along all industrial lines have given
our people new hope and courage. And a
very decided majority of them are in favor
of letting well enough alone, and the name
of President McKinley possesses more
power today upon the popular heart, con
science and intelligence of the people of
North Carolina than that of any other liv
ing statesman. In view of results accom
plished, the 10 to 1 pet financial Idea of Mr.
Bryan is rarely alluded to except as a
matter of ridicule."

Description of Condition* In Storm
Swept City.
Mr. Frank Lock of New York city, the
representative of the Atlas Assurance Com
pany of London, stopped here on his way
home from Galveston, Tex., where he had
gone on a business trip. He spent some
time this morning in the office of Mr. Simon
Wolf, and while there he gave an account
of what he had seen in the ill-fated city,
as the result of the recent cyclone. He
said the newspaper accounts of the loss
of life and property were not exaggerated,
and that It would be difficult to paint in
darker colors than the reality the picture
of the city as it is seen today. The work
of repairing the damage, he said, is being
prosecuted with energy and good Judg
ment and the splendid qualities displayed
by the people in this emergency were
worthy of all praise.
Several miles of the city are yet to be
gone over, and" It is estimated that 1,000
houses are burled in the ruins. It is be
lieved that many bodies will be found in
the debris.
A curious effect of the changes wrought
by the Inroad of the sea, he said, were the
rows of fire plugs stretching far out into
the ocean, indicating the lines of the sub
merged streets. This encroachment on the
land by the water, Mr. Lock says, will be
permanent.
Shortly before 2 o'clock this morning Wm.
Lackey of No. 313 Pennsylvania avenue
northwest was attacked with hemorrhage
and was removed to the Emergency Hos
pital in the patrol wagon of the sixth pre
cinct. After receiving treatment he im
proved and was sent to tb* Washington
Asylum Hospital.

from which point he waa transferred to

retary and charge d'affaires, receives the
promotion which his long and creditable
service seems to make likely In the near
future.
PLAIN TALK.
TO CATARRH SUFFERERS.
Every person suffering from catarrh In its many
forms, knows that the common lotions, salves and
douches do not cure. Ir is needless to argue this
{?oint or to cite cases eff failure, because every
victim of catarrhal trouble knows It for himself
if he ha* tried them. ?<*'?
A local application, if it do^fl anything at all,
simply gives temporary reliefs a wash, lotion,
calve or powder cannot reach the seat of the dis
ease which is the blood.''
The mucouB membrane seeks to relieve the blood
of catarrhal poison by secreting large quantities
of mucus, the discharge sometimes closing up the
nostrils descending to tbfc throat and larynx, caus
ing an Irritating cough, continual clearing of the
throat, deafness, indigestion und many other dis
agreeable and persistent symptoms.
A remedy to really curj? catatrh must be an in
ternal treatment; a remedy which will gradually
cleanse the system from1 catarrhal poison and re
move the fever and congestion always present In
the mucous membrane.
The best remedies for -thfa purpose are Eacalyp
tol, Songuinaria and Hydrastis, but the difficulty
has always been to get these valuable curatives
combined in one palatable, convenient and effi
cient form.
Recently this has been accomplished and the
preparation put on the market under the name of
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets; Ibey are large, pleasant
tusting locenges, so that they may be slowly dis
solved In the month, thus reaching every part of
the mucous membrane and finally the stomach and
intestines.
An advantage to be considered also is that
Stuart'a Catarrh Tablets contain no cocajne, mor
phine or poisonous narcotics, so often found in
catarrh powders, and the use of which often en
tails a habit more dangerous than the disease.
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets are sold by druggists
at AO cts.. foe full-sized package, and Are probably
the safest and most effectual catarrh cure on the
market. st26,27*2?,3t

The Standard Enteral? Co,
A Rare Chance to Get no on the
Ground Floor of a New Company
Sure of a Large Business Pay
ing IIimmense Profits.
The Standard Butterine Company is incorporated tinder the
laws of the State of West Virginia, with a capital stock of $1,000,
ooo, divided as follows:
5,000 shares Preferred Full Paid, Non-assessable?par value
$100 per share?$500,000.
5,000 shares Common Stock?$500,000.
The Preferred Stock is guaranteed to pay eight per cent per
annum, and the Common Stock is expected by the most conser
vative calculations to pay at least FIFTEEN PER CENT after the
first year of business.
Messrs. Gurley & Johnson, bankers and brokers, of this city,
and members of the New York Stock Exchange, are about to place
two hundred thousand dollars' worth of the Standard Butterine Com
pany's Stock. They will sell Preferred Stock at par?$100 per
share?and will give as a bonus ONE SHARE OF THE COM
MON STOCK WITH EVERY SHARE OF PREFERRED
STOCK BOUGHT.
It is desired to.place this stock with the Washington public, and
after it is placed application will be made to have the stock listed on
the Washington Stock Exchange.
This is an exceptional opportunity for an investment which
cannot fail to prove highly profitable.
The object of the company is to manufacture a high grade of
Butterine, and its officers are men of wide experience in this line
of business.
The President of the Company, Mr. W. P. Wilkins, has been
engaged in the business for years, and is certainly thoroughly com
petent to place the company on an immediate paying basis.
The company has secured eight and three-quarters acres of
ground on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, known as the Clark
Mills Property, and has purchased abroad the latest improved ma
chinery for the manufacture of Butterine.
The erection of the plant and installment of machinery will be
supervised by expert men, and everything possible will be done to
insure a perfect product.
THE COMPANY ALREADY HAS FROM RESPONSI
BLE DEALERS ORDERS FOR FOUR HUNDRED THOU
SAND POUNDS BUTTERINE A MONTH, TO BE TAKEN
TUST AS SOON AS IT IS POSSIBLE TO PLACE THE FAC
TORY IN OPERATION.
The profit in Butterine making is very large, and although the
field is practically a new one, the demand is strong and certain.
In no other legitimate way can such large profits be made as in
the manufacture of a high grade of Butterine.
The possibilities of the business are shown bv the fact that in
the little country of Holland eight hundred million pounds of But
terine are made every year?nearly ten times the present entire pro
duct of the United States.
Nearly all the early prejudice against Butterine as an article
of food lias disappeared. It is becoming known as a perfectly pure
and wholesome article of food, possessing none of the disadvantages
of butter, kept without difficulty in all climates and all kinds of
weather, and composed only of food products used habitually on
every table.
Prof. W. O. Atwater, director of the U. S. Government Ag
ricultural Experiment Station, Washington, D. C.: "It contains es
sentially the same ingredients as natural butter from cows milk. It
is perfectly wholesome and healthy and has a high nutritive value."
With the orders now in sight the company can 'bv actual fig
ures. which will gladly be shown to all interested, make a net profit
of nearlv two hundred thousand dollars a vear, which is sufficient to
pav EIGHT PER CENT ON THE PREFERRED STOCK OF
THE COMPANY, OR TWENTY PER CENT OF THE EN
TIRE CAPITALIZATION.
It should also be stated that the plant of the company will also
make on hundred tons of ice every twenty-four hours, and the prof
its from this alone will pay coal bills, engineers' and firemen's sal
aries, and thus provide power for running the plant absolutely with
out cost.
This brief statement of the facts in regard to the company
should interest all investors looking for an absolutely safe and, at
the same time, highly profitable investment.
The company stands ready to offer the fullest proof upon all
points, and to give intending investors full satisfaction upon any
question which they may raise.
Preferred Stock to be sold at par being limited in quantity, it
is suggested that early application be made.
