OOLDSRORO N. C SEPT. 8, 1892
LOCAL BRIEFS. Mr. and Mrs. L. II. Castex left TORtrda,v for the Northern markets to purchase a Block of goods for . . n , rt err their large traae inis can ana win ter. That eloquent and invincible Democrat C. B. Ajcock, is in the West convincing, and we have no loubt converting, Third partyites of ihe error of their way. Every member of the Stevenson committee of arrangement", pub lished iu this issue, should be in prompt attendance at the meeting this afternoon at 3.30 o'clock at Al len & Dortch's office. tlotr. F. M. Simmons, Chairman of the State Democratic Executive Committee, spent several hours in this city yesterday. He gives most cheering reports of the progress of the campaign throughout the State. Everybody in Goldsboro and throughout this entire section should talk for and work for the great Stevenson Jubilee here on the 22d of September, It should be made a red letter day in the history of Goldsboro. Ma J. W. T. Hollo well, who has been representing the State in the annual session of the K- of P. Grand Lodge rf the world, which was held this year in Kansas City, Mo., has arrived safe home aiain, and reports a most enjoyable time all round. Wait till the county cauvass opens and then see how the Third party candidates wince and run under Democratic fire all that is left of them when the campaign opens. We doubt if they will have a full ticket, ai it is now composed, by that time. The way ot the flopper is hard and he is going lo find it bo in tbis campaign: and henceforth forever. Mirk the flopper and especially mark him on election day, for there is time between now and then for him to get straight and come back to the fold; bnt on that day mark him, and bevond tbut day remember him. Herein fail n-'t. Nothing should be left undone to make the Stevenson jubilee in this city ou the 22nd current as grand a rally as this section of North Caro lina can afford. Goldsboro should "spread herself" for the occasion; and to this end we urge upon the committee of arrangements to get right down to work at once and let everybody else in Golilsboro co likewise. The 22ud is the day Thursday, September 22nd. Those who are sjekiug light in the present campaign ought to be doubtful of following such a leader as Mr. Marion Butler. He ha3 led many of our people who followed his advice to hold their cotton, which he assured them would be sure to rise in price, to lose a great dval of money. Many trusted him then and it cost them dear. He is an unsafe leader and it may cost you a great deal more if you allow him to mis lead you again. The Democratic party or the Re publican party will be successful in the next election. Which do you prefer, Harrison or Cleveland? A vote for Weayer is half a vote for Harrison. As Elias Carr well says : M Harrison, with his high tariff and Force bill programme, will be a sorry result, if the Third party should poll enough votes., to defeat Cleveland, aad the decent men in the Third party would never cease to regret the blindness which would be responsible for it ". The death of Mr. Aaron Parks, whose illness was noted in Thurs day's Argus, occurred at his home in oauiston lownauip xnureuay night, in the 74th year of his age, of typhoid fever. He was the father of our esteemed countyman Mr. Berry A. Pai ks, and was one of the most respected citizens ot tne county. He was a member of the Society of Friends. His death will be deeply mourned by all who knew him. The funeral took place from his late home yesterday afternoon. The ienderegt, inexpressible sym pathy of this entire community goes out this morning to Mr. and Mrs. F. L. Castex, whose interesting little daughter Hannah, five and one-half years old, died Monday morning at 10:50 o clock, after a lingering illness of several weeks, at the Hotel lien non, from which thj funeral was held Tuesday morning at 10 o'cock, Rev. B. R. Hall, pastor of St. Paul's M.E. Church, officiating. "Suffer little children to come unto Me and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of Heaven . The North Carolina Monumental Association has been formed with Mrs. Armistead Jones, of Oharlotte, as President, Miss Maggie Cow per, of Raleigh, Secretary, and Hon. Don aid Bain, Treasurer, with a vice president from every county in the State, the object being to erect a monument to the N . U. Uoniederate Dead. Mrs. W, H. Borden has been elected vice-president for Wayne county, and will co-operate with the Association in raising funds. This : is a noble work and should receive generous support from all our people. Died In this city : Thursday morning ut 7:15 o'clock Mre. Bettie T. Holt, wife of Mr. R. D. Holt, aged 56 years, 3 months and 3 days. For 13 years she had been in feeble health and a great sufferer. She was indeed a good woman and her many warm personal friends will sorrow that she is no more. Into a sweet and well earned rest she has entered Her funeral took place from St Paul's M. E. Church Friday morning at 10 o clock, of which she bad been a consistent and worthy member for the past thirty years. The letter of acceptance of Presi dent Harrison, which appears in an other column, is quite a plausible presentation of all the most popular features of the bad principles of hi3 party. It is partisan to an unusual extent, and breathes not one senti ment in harmony with a -broad and enlightened patriotism. It suggests flippancy,is boastful and egotistic. It begins and ends with a cold shiver at the liar suggestion of re-establishing State Banks of issue. If the letter of acceptance of Grover Cleve land is not a broader, an abler and more patriotic discussion of great pub'ic questions we will be sorely disappointed. GcviiKB" W. P. Exum had his picture taken in this city Wednesday a:id the "negative" is now beiDg developed by the artist so is the negative vote of North Carolina be ing developed that is going to over whelm him in November next. We are unable to eay whether the "Gov." responded graciously to the injunc tion f the artist to "look pleasant:" if ; he did, his picture will prove the most taking card in the Third Party campaign, because the "Guvner" is not a bad looking man by any means. But with his record behind him and his canvas3 before him Dr. Wyatt Patrick &c has got a hard read to travel. A goodly number of delegates went up to Raleigh Tuesday from the various sections of the State to attend the Republican convention, which convenes there to morrow. Upon the action of this convention, it would seem, to all human appear ances, hangs the destiny of the State. If they do no: nominate a ticket, the fight will be between the white people of the State, char acterized, it may be, by that bitter ness which always characterizes amily disputes. If they do nomi nate a ticket we venture the asser tion that the ticket will reap the ex perience of all persons who interfere in a family dispute,. The disputants will unite and destroy it. It is with inexpressible regret that we chronicle this morning the death of Mr. C. D. Seawell, son of Dr. V. N. Seawell, which occurred in this city Thursday afternoon, of fever, iu the 21st year of his age, after an ill ness of three weeks. Mr. Seawell came to this city several months ago to nil a position with Messrs. Biz- zell Bros. & Co., where he endeared himself alike to the firm and the public by his quiet demeanor and al- wavs courteous attentions. He had won the hearts of ail who knew him here and his untimely death is deep ly deplored. He connected himself with the Baptist Church here dur ing the receut Fife rneetiugs and derived great joy and spiritual strength from the services. Surely is it well with him now. His re mains were taken to the old home stead near Seven Springs for inter ment, where his mother is sleeping. His father wa3 with him during his last davs here, and the sympathy of our entire community goes out to him in his sad bereavement. The Republican party of this county held their county convention in this city Saturday, which resoiyed itself into an advisory conclave rather than a distinct party con vention. It was presided over alternately by J. Frank Dob son and a negro and by both together, as they sat side by side on the rostrum and con- noodled, and worked the thing on paper as it had been previously ar ranged: the motly throng of "dele gates ' just voting "aye to every thing. It was decided not to put a county ticket in the field just yet; but a proposition to endorse the Third party county ticket was re ceived with great disfavor and snow ed under overwhelmingly. Four delegates, two white and two col ored, Messrs. J. F. Dobson, H. L Grant, W. S. Hogans and Miller, were elected to the Republican State convention which convenes in Ra leigh on Wednesday of this week, with instructions to vote for a straight-out Republican State ticket. If Goldsboro is alive to her best interests, and if she would be true to her reputation for public spirit and open hospitality she would need to bestir herself for the Stevenson Jubilee, which is now near at hand. He visits Goldsboro on the 22d of this month. He is to visit Charlotte on the 17th and here is what the Observer has to say about it: "Preparations for the meeting here on the 17th inst., at which Adlai E. Stevenson is to speak, are now under way, and it is well there is no time to be lost. There should be a great barbecue here that day, and all the people of a dozen surrounding counties should be inyited. This should be preceded by a horse back procession, and- marshals should be appointed for every township in the county. The proper committee should see to it that the lowest possible railroad rates are secured from every point within at least J00 miles of Char lotte. It is nearly as easy to bring 10,000 people to. Charlotte that day as it is 5,000, but if an effort is necessary to do so it should be put forth. Charlotte, the hrst city in the State, should giy e Mr. Stevenson a handsomer meeting than be will get elsewhere in our borders.

He--Yes, and when we're married I don't want any of the family thrown in. Tid-liite. . .'. POLITICS AT MT. OlilVE. Between 1,500 and 2,000 people attended ihe political gathering at Mt. Olive Friday, which had been called by Marion Butler as purely a Third party rally, bnt to which he was indiscreet enough to invite Dem ocrats and Democratic speakers and these came, too.. From early morning the crowd began to gather, and by 11 o'clock the main thor oughfare was crowded with a surg ing mass of humanity more or Itss engaged in discaasiiig politics, iu groups, white awaiting the arrival of Marion Butler, who came in on the noon train from the South. This gathering, as we have already said, was iutended to be purely a Third party muster, and to tbis end, as the darkeys say, "the word was sent out" for all the Third partyites to be on hand that could "get there"; consequently about the entire following of Third partyism for 25 miles around were there, and yet in that vast concourse of some 2,000 people the "unterrified Democracy" outnumbered the Third partyites fuliy three to one. This was made most manifest and strik ing when the train arrived on which came Butler : all his Third party followers crowded to the depot to give him .an ovation ! But alas ! how flat it fell ! An occasional cheer from some esul erant admirer and some hasty hand shaking was all there was in il: and the crowd that didn't throng to greet him was cer tainly twice as large as the scuffliDpr throng that gathered round him at the cars. And yet this was clis tinctly a Third party day, and all Thirdpartyites from three sur rounding counties Wayne, Dup lin, Sampson and from John son and Lenoir, were there, and still they could not begin to out number the Democrats who had come in from just around the neigh borhood of Mt. Olive to see what was going on. The speaking carne off in the grove on thesuburbs, and was led oft by Mr. C. B, Ay cock, who, together with Mr. E. C. Beddingfield, was on hand, and was followed by Mr. But ler. The editor of The Argus went down on the early train, just to see how the crowd would size up, but was compelled by business engage ments in the city to return on the noon train. He left a reporter on the scene, however, who will be heard from ia to-morrow's issue. Mt. Olive Items. The Caucasian has as its motto, "Pure Democracy and white Su premacy . This 13 as paradoxical as the Progressive Farmer; both are after an ideal they honor in senti ment, but dare not approach in prac tice.

Scratch a 3d party man and a Radical will itch. , Mr. Butler should haye grand reasons for thinking himself a "big ger man than Grant , he has had the distinguished honor of aiding in the nomination of three Governors for North Carolina since June 1st. "Oh what a tail our cat has got". Caesar feeds on a diet rare, Macintosh and Pompadour hair; Carries himself with kingly air, But this weather-cock can't get there, This season. Don Quixote straddles hi3 ass, And marshals his army mixed The silver bill he's sure to pass, And then he will have them fixed : To his notion. It is reported that the 3d party candidate for Governor is physically unable to make a canvas of the State. Are his other faculties equal to the emergency? The crops are suffering for rain, though not as bad as in your locality. Ihe health or our town is excel lent. The Misses Howell, of Goldsboro, have been visiting Miss Julia McGee, ' Did you ever cee Earl Arrogance, Who wields such potent party lance, That makes his friends sing and dance, When his majesty essays to prance ! Did you ever? How maay of the Third party State ticket are practical farmers? The banner of Ulevelana and Carr floats proudly to the breeze, and we have a large membership of the "blue hen's chickens." When the returns are in look out for Brogden. Miss Anna Stanford, of Clinton, is visiting friends here. Mrs. Mary Liove and family are paying a visit to old friends. Airs. Alex. Davis, who has been sick, is better. The Mount Olive High School be gan August 31st. Misses Weir and Bright, of Kin ston, are visiting Mrs. R. Kornegay. Mr. and Mrs. Dayid Lof tin, of Dade City, Fla., and Mr. and Mrs. John Lof tin, of Florence, S. C, are visiting their mother here.- Can a man be politically honest who accepts of a trust from a con vention of his neighbors to cast his vote for them, as their chosen . rep resentative, and then come away and within a month advocate and - take part in an opposing convention? Is he not honor bound by the former action. If political honor is worth nothing, what is private honor worth? Define the difference. None but a Weaverite can V understand such methods, In the. ways that are dark and the tricks that are vain they are more peculiar than the heathen Chinee." Township Primaries, The reports from all sections of the county are to the effect that the Democratic township primaries Sat urday were well attended. The primary of this township was better attended than we have known for years. It was called to order by the township committeeman Mr. F. A. Daniel3, who in staling the object of the meeting took occasion to im press upon those present the neces sity of unity of sentiment and ag gressive work in the campaign, which he rightly designated a3 the most important that has come upon us witmn a generation. The temporary organization was made permanent with the Demo cratic editors of the city as secretary.

His Letter of Acceptance to the He.? rublican Committee, "Washington, Sept. 5. Presi dent Harrison's letter, accepting the nomination for the Presidency, was made public to-day. The main points of it are aa foilowe: . Hon. Wm. MeKinlvy, Jr., and others, Committeess; Gentlemen: I now avail niy self of the first period of relief from public duties to respond to tho notification which you brought me on June 20th, of my nomination for the office of President ot the Dnitcd States by the Republican National Convention recently held at Minneapolis. I accept the nom ination, and am grateful for the ap proval expressed by the convention of the action of the Administration. I have endeavored without waver ing or weariness, so far as tho di rection ot public affairs is commit ted to me, to carry out the plodges made to the people in 1888. If the policies of the Administration have not been distinctively and progres sively American and Republican policies, the lanH has not been in the purpose but in the execution. I pLall ?peak frankly of the legisla tion of Congress and of tho work of executive departments, for the credit of any successes that have been attained ia in great measure due to the other. A voto of ''want of confidence" is asked by our ad yersanes, and this challenge to a review of what has been done we promptly and gladly accept. The great work of the Fifty-first Con gress was subjected to a revision of a Democratic House of Represen tatives, and acts of the executive department to its scrutiny and inc vestigation. A Democratic Ad ministration was succeeded by a Republican Administration and the freshness of events gives unus ual facilities for fair comparison and judgement. There has 6e!dom been a time, 1 think, when a change from the declared policies of the Republican to declared policies of the Democratic party involved such serious results to the business interests of the country. A brief review of what haa been done and of what tho Democratic party proposes to undo, will justify this opinion. The Republican party during the civil war devised a na tional currency, consisting of United States notes, issued and re- deemble by the Government, and national bank notes based upon the secrity of United States bonds. A tax was levied upon the issues oi State banks, and the intended re sult, that all ench issues ehonld be withdrawn, was realized. There are men among us now who never saw a State bank note. Notes furnished directly or indirectly by the United States have been the only safe and acceptable' paper cur rency ot the people. Dank failures have brought on fright, delay or loss to bill holders the note of an insolvent bank is as good and as current as a treasury note, tor the credit of the United States is be hind it. I might almost 6ay inter national, for these bills are not only indiscriminately accepted at points in all States, but in some foreign countries. The Democratic party, if entrusted with control of the Government is now pledged to repeal the tax on State bank issues, with a view to putting into circu lation under such adyerso legisla tion as the State mav adopt, a flood of local bank issues. Only those who m years before the war exper ienced the inconvenience and losses attendant upon the use of ench money, can appreciate what return to that system involves. Ihe dct nomination of a bill was then of no indication of its value. The bank detective of yesterday was not a safe guide today as to the credit or values. Merchants deposited several times during the day, lest the hour of the bank closing should show depreciation of money taken in the morning. The traveller could not use in a journey to the East issues ot the most solvent banks of West, and in consequence the money changers othce was the familiar neighbor of the ticket office and lunch counter. The farmer and laborer found money received for their labor, depreciat ed when they came to make their purchases, and the whole business of the countrv was hindered and burdened. Changes may become necessary, but the national system of currency, safe and exceptable throughout the whole country, is the good fruit of bitter experience, and I am sure our people will not consent to the reactionary proposal made by the Democratic party.. fThe President then devotes con siderable space to the question of a revival of American shipping and to argument in support of the subsidy law of the Fifty-first Con gress, as tending to recovery of the carrying trade by the United States. THE FORCE BILL. In my last annual message to Congress I said "I must yet enter tain the hope that it is possible to secure calm, patriotic : considera-' tion of such constitutional or stat. utory changes as may be necessary to secure choice of officers -of the Government to the people by fair apportionments and free elections. I believe it would be possible to constitute a commission non-partisan' in its membership and com posed of patriotic, wiee and ima partial men to whom the consid eration of, questions connected with our elections system and methods might be committed : with good prospect of securing unanimity of some plan for removing or miti gating those evils, Tho conetitni tion would permit the election of the commission to be invested in tl.e Supreme Court, if that method would crive tho best guaranty of impartiality. This commission should be charged with the duty of . . . . -m t . 1? A. mquiri'-g into th3 wnoie suojeci of the law of elections as related to choice of officers of the National Government, with the view to se curinsr to everv elector free and unmolested exercise of suffrage, and as near an approach lo equal itv of value "n each ballot cast as is attainable. The demand that the limitation of suffrage shall be found in the law, and onjy there, is a just demand and no just man should resent or resist it. It seems to me the appeal to our people to consider the question of readjust ing our legislation upon absolutely fair, non-partisan lines might find some effective response. Many times I have had occasion to eay that loose election methods, de signed to give unfair advantage to the party making them, would sometimes be used to perpetuate in power a faction of a party against the will of the majority of the peoj pie. Of this we seem to have illus tration in the recent State election in Alabama. There was no Re publican ticket in the field; the contest was between white Demo crats. The Kolb party say they were refused representation guar anteed by law upon the election board, and that when the courts, by mandamus, attempted to right this wrong, an appeal that could not bo heard until after the elec tion made the writs ineffectual. Ballot boxes were thrown out for alleged irregularities or destroyed, and it is asserted on behalf -of one half at least ot the white voters of Alabama, that, officers to whom certificates have been given were not honestly. elected. There is no security for personal or political rights of any man in a community where any other man is deprived of his personal or political rights. The power of States over the ques tion of qualification of electors is atnplo to protect them against the danger of ignorant suffrage, . and the demand that every man found to be qualified under the law shall be made secure in the right to cast a free ballot and to haye that bal lot honestly counted, cannot be abated. Oorold Republican bat tle cry, "Free ballot and a fair count," comes back to us, not only from Alabama, but from many other States, and from men who differ vnth us widely in opinion, who have come to see that parties and political debate aro but mockery, if, when debate is ended, the judgment of honest majorities is to be reversed by ballot box frauds and tally sheet manipula tors in the interest of a parly or party faction in power. These new political movements in the country, and the recent de cision of some State Court against unfair apportionment laws, en courage the hope that arbitrary and partisan election laws and practices which have prevailed, may be corrected by State laws, made equal and non-partisan, and elections free and honest. The Republican party would rejoice at such a solution, as a healthy and patriotic local sentiment is the best assurance of free and honest elec tion. I shall again urge upon Con gress that provision be made for the appointment of a non-partisan commission to consider the subject of apportionments and elections in their relation to the choice of Fed eral officers. THE TARIFF. The declaration of the platform favor ef "The American doctrine ot protection" meets my most hearty approval. The Convention did not adopt a schedule, but a principle, that is to control all tariff schedules. There may be differences of opinion among pro tectionists as to the rate npon particular articles necessary to effect an equalization between wages abroad and at home. In some not remote national cempaigns the issue has been, or, more correctly, has been made to appear to be, be tween a high and a low tariff both parties expressing the same solicitous regard for the wages of working people ana ior tae proa perity of our domestic industries. Bat, under more courageous: lead ership, the Democratic party has now practically declared that if given power it will enact a tariff law without any regard to its effect upon wages or upon capital invest ed in our great 'industries. The majority report of the Committee on i'lattorm to tne democratic National Convention at Chicago contained tbis clause: "That when custom house taxation is levied upon the articles of any kind pro duced in this country, the " differ ence between the cost of labor here and labor aboad, when such differ- enee exists, may measures any possible benefits to labor, and the enormous additional imposition of the existing tariff tails with crush ing force upon our farmers and working men." r. Here we have distinct admission oi the Republican contention that American workman are advanced by the tariff rate : equal difference be tween home and foreign wages, and the declaration only against the alleged " additional impositions of the existing tariff law". Again, this majority report further declared, " but, in making reduction of taxes, it is not proposed to injure any do mestic industries but rather to pro mote their healthy growth. More over, many industries have come to rely upon legislation for successful continuance, so - that any change of taw muse dq at every step regardful oi me laoor ana capital thus in volved:". . . Here we have an ..admission that many of the industries are dependent upon protective duties " for their successful continuance", and declara tion that tariff changes should be re gardful of the workmen in such in dustries and of invested capitals. The overwhelming rejection of these propositions, which had before re ceived the sanction of the Democratic National Conventions, was not more indicative of the new and more cour ageous leadership to which the party has now committed itself than the substitute which was adopted. This substitute declares that protective duties are unconstitutional high protection low protection all un constitutional. The Democratic Con gress holding this view cannot enact, nor a Democratic President approve any tariff schedule, the purpose or effect of which is to limit importa tions or to give any advantage to American workmen- or producers. A bounty might, I judge, be given to the importers, under this view of the constitution, in order to increase importation, and so the revenue, for "revenue only" is a limitation. Reciprocity, of course, falls under the denunciation, for its object and effect are not for promotion of com mercial exchange, the profits of which go wholly to our producers. This destructive un-American doc trine was not held or taught by his toric Democratic statesmen whose fame as American patriots has reach ed this general certainty, nor by Jefferson or Jackson. This mad crusade against American shops and persistent distrust of everv report of opening of a tin-plate mill or of in crease of our foreign trade by recip ity, are as surprising as they are dis creditable. There is not a thought ful business man in the country who does not know that enactment into law of the declaration of Chicago convention upon the subject of the tariff, would at once plunge the country into a business convulsion, such a3 was never seen. There is not a thoughtful, workinar man who does not know that it would at once enormously reduce the amount of work to be done in this countrv, by an increase of importation that would follow and necessitate reduction of wages to the European standard. If any one suggests that this radical policy will not be executed if the Democratic party obtains power, what shall be thoueht of the partv that is capable of thus trifling with freat interests? A distinguished emocrat riehtlv described this movement as a challenge to protected industries to a fight of extermination, and another such rightly expressed the logic of the situation when he interpreted the Chicago platform to be an invitation to all Democrats holding ever the most moderate pro tection views to go into the Republi can party.
