DKMOCUATIC PLATFORM. 1S91- The following is the State Dem ocrptic platlorm as enunciated by the State Convention in assembly May 18th: Besolved, 1. That the Democ racy of North Carolina reaffirm the principles of 'ie Democratic piirty, both State and National, an J narticnlarlv favor the free coinage of silver and an increase ot the currency, and the repeal of t.!e internal revenue system. And wro denounce the McKinley tariff bill as unjust to the cor-umeraoi the country, and ?eading to the formation of trusts, combines and mor.ooolies wh?ch have oppressed the people; the urneces' ry and burdensome increase in the tax on cotton ties and on t: eo largely used by the poorer portion of the too pie. We likewise denoanco the iniquitous Force bill, which not yet ab .ndoned by the Republi can party, but is being used as a incr.sure to be adopted as soon as thev srain control of the House o llei-rcsentatives, the purpose and effect ot which measure will be to establish a second period of recon s' ruction in the Southern Statfis, to subvert the libertien of our people and inflame a new race antagonism anc actional animosities. - 2. That wc demand financial re form, and the enactment oi laws that will remove the burdens of the people relative to the existing ag ricultural depression, and do full and ample justice to the farmers and laborers of onr country. 3.

Believing in the doctrine of "equal rights to all and spacial privileges to none," we demand that taxation, National or State, ehall not be used to build up one interest or claes at the expenee of another. We believe that the money of the country should be kept as much as possible in the hands of the people, and hence we demand that all revenues. Nation al, State or county, shall be limited to the neccesary expenses of the government, economically and hon estly administered. 8. That Congress , issue a euifi circut amount of fractional paper currency to facilitate the exchange through the medium of the United States mail. 9. -That the General Assembly pass such laws as will make - the public school system more effec tive that the blessing of education may be extended to all the people of the State alike. : 10.

Many of our people took it in, and all are well pleased, several having starred a new life. Occasionally we find a man that says the Evangelist gets too much money, but we dou't ask him how much he gave, for fear we might get him where the colored woman was when asked if she had to give up tobacco or Handy, which would she do, aud answered, "Now you've got me in u close place."

The obiect of this memoir, Ilich- ard Ravnor, died rt the residence of F. Cox, iu Wayne county, on the 30th day of May in the 80th year of his age and was buried the following dav in the family graveyard at his home. , The many citizens and friends who attended the obsequies, and the tender expressions of sympathy and the tears that were dropped on his grave, was sufficient evidence that a good citizen, kind and. devoted lamer was dead aud his mortal remains wtre beinc laid to rost. He wa3 the father of ten children seven daughters and three sons,- of which three preceded him to another and better world. In February 1890, his devoted companion was taken away Since that time, he has expressed a willingness and a desire to die: said only a few days before the end that he wanted to die aud go home where he cou.d be with his wife and chii dren that were waitins for him at the pearly gate. ' He professed religion and joined the Methodist Church at Falling Creek several years ago. Since that time he has lived a quiet, Christian life. By his indomitable energy and perseverance he amassed considera ble fortune of this world's goods up to the close of the late war, when a greater portion of it was swept away. Not one of the kind to be discour aged or succumb to adversity, he went to work again and made a suc cess in gathering up more of this world's goods; he took great pleasure and pride in helping poor men take a start in life, and now has the credit of being the benefactor of several persons who are now in good cir cumstance?. But his greatest ambi tion and greatest desire was to lavish upon his family the luxuries of this life, which he was very successful in doing. He leaves Ove daughters and two sons and a -host of relatives and friends to mourn their loss. : Thus hath passed away a useful, respected beloved and honored citi zen; Bweet be his rest and a glorious awakening. .
