WEAVER'S RE(X)RD.
Wilmington Messenger. '-
The record of Gen. Weaver, the
nominee for the Presidency of the
Third partyites, is . so damaging, so
indefensible, so bad, so base in fact
that he will haudicap the new con
glomerate dreadfully. He is such a
nolent hater of the South that it
would seem - as if no self-respecting
white man -can think of voting for
him; If " the Democrats ip Sforth
Carolina who are either thinking of
supporting him, or have already
taken a step identifying them with
the new party wijl but inform them
selves of what Weaver has done, has
said and is doing they cannot surely
vote for such a vascillating, fickle,
trading demagogue.
The men of the South must stand
by the South. It is no time for
white men of honest? and good in-
tentjo.ns, tp be running after new
and dangerous dogmas in politics, '
and pursuing the phantom of suc
cess by supporting such a fellow fts
Weaver, the Mlignau.
t is nq tme purely for men with
white skins, with mothers and wives
and daughters, to be identifying
themselves with the eneraje and
raducera. of tb,e Sp,qth with men
ike Weaver who- ha ye exhausted
the vocabulary Qf denunciation upon
the Southern !fAjfe& and men like
larrispp, Reid, Hoar, Lodge and
the other bull-dossere in the Radical
party, who are forcing. on the sluth-
hounds of trouble and bloodshed un
der the guise of a needed Force bill.
We do not Bee how any deceut
Southern white man can ao much,
as thiufe of supporting Ger. Weaver.
The South must forget all that has
occurred, be blind to what is before
it, be deaf to all the clamor in the
North for u Force bill for the Sopth
that comes up from every section
and every point of the Republican
party,
For a boqthero. white man to turn
his back upon his race, upon his
section, upon the grand eld party
that has done all that has been done
for the good of the South, und has
kept back the great waves of de
struction until now that have been
set in motiqn, against it by the Re
publicans, would be indeed lamenta
ble and inexcusable' and blind in
fatuation.
Have the Southern white men lost
their -memories and their manhood?
Have they shut their eyes to all that
has taken place, "and blotted from
memory the great struggle for honor,
for safety, for deliverance? Are the
black days all forgotten? From the
bitter dayB of the Pennsylvania
scoundrel and murderer, Thad Ste
veus, until the present hour, there
has been no more vindictive sweep
ing assailant and tradncer of the
whites of the South than this man
Weaver. It might have been indig
nantly and well written this mon-st-r
Weaver,
The press is reproducing from the
damaging newspaper files the tomb
of so many rotten and rascally poli
ticians the career, the . votes, the
speeches, the denunciations , of
Weaver. The Washington corre
spondent of the Richmond (Va.)
Times on 16th inst, sent this: -
" In the year 1886 and following
through all the period of reconstruc
tion, and even later Weaver was
conspicuous , Republican stump
speaker in Iowa and other Western
States. His efforts, however, were
mainly confined to Iowa, and from
ever; stump he denounced the
"rebels" and the Southern people.
He could find no more offensive
epithet for Northern Democrats
than to term them "rebels".. He
boasted that the Republicans would
crush the copperhead Democracy as
Grant did the "traitorous rebels"
their friends, etc. Of r '1 the men
who to-day pretend to hold an inde
pendent position in politics no one
could have been chosen more offen
sive to the South and her people
than Jas. B. Weaver, and if North
Carolina - Democrat who are now
disposed to accept this man as their
leader will but wait to examine his
record and : character they will no
doubt reject him as unworthy of
their suffrages".
The record will be brought to
light bo all can see it and understand
it of this sectional partisan and
malignant traduce r and hater of the
South.

FREE COINAGK OP SILVER.
A party of gentlemen sitting in
front of the " Hotel Kennon " yes
terday were discussing the question
of , ." Free Coinage " with all , the
earnestness of mid-campaigiL.enthus-
iasm, and ae if the question v. ere a
ive issue on the hustings. - And
while the party of gentlemen in
question wss made up of some of our
most intelligent citizens, still, from
"free coinage" standpoint, it was
evident that they were not altogether
ully posted. '
As the Atlanta Journal says, what
is known as" the silver question"
s possibly more imperfectly compre
hended by the masses of the people
than any other one of the political
issues of the day. Very few people
could, if called upon, give a common
sense explanation of the question,
and manv of the politicians who at
tempt to discuss it volubly on the
stump would be helpless to define it.
In the interest of a clearer compre
hension of the problem it may not
be out of place to present a concise
definition of it here.
The "silver question " aow before
the people of the United States is
whether the mints of the govern
ment shall co?n silver dollars weigh
ing 412 i grains as freely as they can
coin gold money. At present any
owner of gold bullion can take it to
the mint and have it coined into
wo-and-a-half, five, ten or twenty
dollar pieces, as he chooses and to
any amount, Those who counted
for free silver coinage, seek to secure
for the holders of silver bullion the
same "freedom" now enjoyed by the
owners of gold bullion.
The basis of the opposition to this
ree coinage of silver bullion is that
412i grains of silver -are not worth
now as much as they once were.
That is to say, the quantity of silyei
which it ia pioposed to put in the
silver dollar, whose coinage is to be
made free, is really worth not 100
cents, but only 66 cents.
Of course, if free coinage, as pre-!
sented in all the bills introduced in
Congress, meant putting a dollar's
worth of silver, over 500 grains, in
every dollar, there could and would
be no objection to it. It is no occa
sion for surprise, however, that there
should be very pronounced opposi
tion to the coinage of 66 cents worth
of silver into a dollar which is to
pass for 100 cents. .
It is safe to say that if the "silver
question" were more clearly under
stood, the free coinage minority in
the Democratic party would be much
smaller than it ia.
But be this as it may "free coin
age is not an issue in tnis campaign,
and good men and true should not
allow themselves to be diverted. The
fight is on. It is a fight of Demoo-
raoy against the Republican party
a fiffht for the people against the
rascals.
Let's turn the rascals out.
