The Superintendent'! Klcventh
nual Report of 1801, 'OU.
The following is the State Dem
ocrptic platlorm as enunciated by
the State Convention in assembly
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. That we demand the abolition
ot national banks, and the substi
tuting of legal tender Treastry
notes, issued in sufficient volume
to do the business ot the country
on a cash system, regulating the
amount needed on a per capita baj
sis p.s the business interests of the
country expand, and that all mon
ey issued by the government shall
bo legal tender in payment of
debts, both public and private.
4. That we demand that Con
gress shall pass such laws as shall
effectually prevent the dealing in
futures of all agricultural and me
chanical productions, provide such
a stringent system of procedure in
trials a3 shall secure prompt con
viction and imposing such penal
tics bs shaU secure most perfect
compliance with the law,
5. That we demand the free and
unlimited coinage of silver.
6. That we demand the passage
of laws prohibiting the alien own
ership of land, and that Congress
take early steps fb devise some
plan to .obtain all lands now owned
by alien and foreign syndicates;
and that all lands now held by
railroads and other corporations,
in excess of such as is actually
needed by them, be reclaimed by
the government and held for act
ual settlers only.
7. 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
8. That Congress , issue a euifi
circut amount of fractional paper
currency to facilitate the exchange
through the medium of the United
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. That we favor a graduated
tax on incomes.

his age and was buried the following
dav in the family graveyard at his
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
