JLD8ORO N. O.. NOV. 3. S92. "LOCAL BRIEFS. The county canvass is at l'ike ville to-morrow, Stony Creek on Friday, and will wind tip in this city ou Saturday. Lt Democrats everywhere all orer tbe county, be up and at work. , We regret to learn that our good friend and countymau Mr. Jas. W. J5,irdin, living near this city, and who has beeu in feeble health for several months, it prostrated at his home by a stioke of paralysis. Miss Julia Castex has gone to New York to pursue the study of music and the . languages. Her many friends here will miss her greatly in htr absence, while wishing . her a prosperous and happy year of study. Duri;o tbe few remaining days of the campaign let every Derrocrat in North Carolina go actively to work to save his State from the ig nominy of . Republican electors. Wo:k and vigilance win political battlcp. During the month of October more fish were shipped over th A. & N.C. It. R. than ever before during any one month in the history of the road. The fih industry at More head City and Newbern has reached mammoih proportions. The proof is cumulative and con clusive that Mr. S. Otho Wilson is State Chit f of the detestable out lawed "Gidronites", as well as chair man of the Third party State Exec utive Committee. Again we rise to ask w ho is the "Gideon" Chief for Wayne County ? Cotton is coming into this mar ket daily in large quantities. Our country friends from near ai.d far have realized that Goldsboro is the best market for the staple in the State, and hence their patronage comes here, which is duly appreciat ed by us all. Wb ha l the pleasure of a visit yes terdav ficm Rrv. Dr. Iteid, editor of the Raleigh Christian Advocate, whom we found to be a delightful gentleman and charming conver sationalist. He was en route home from a visit to Wilmington, where he s.ent Sui dy. The death of Mr. James B. Davis, a young man of Newhope township, occurred on Thursday night, at the home of bis father, who ia himself f xtrrmelv ill. The young man died from a complication of brain trouble subsequent upon a severe attack of the grip last Winter. Democrats, remember the days of '68, and think of the Force bill that threatens us with a return of those horrible times that tried true meu's sonb! Buckle on your armor now and take it not iff till the vic tory is ours oil the night of Novem ber 8th. We cannot triumph unless we work. Thm t nterprisiog, progressive and popular insurance firm of Craton & Crawford, that have their business office opposite Thb Argus establish ment, have bought out the entire in surance business of Mr. It. M. Frew- man and that of Capt. D. J. Broad hurst, good will Thi Argus wishes them abundant patronage. The Goldsboro Cotton Mill wiil soon start up on its fullest possible ruuning capacity. Mr. L. D. Gully, its new owner, has secured the ser vices of one of the best cot' on mill men in tbe South as its superin tendent, and at an early day the machinery will be set going and kept on full running time. Success to it. Coy i on back, Democrats. What's the use of biting off your nose to spite your fact? Come on back. You know very well when you vote for Weaver you are casting a vote for Harrison, and against your cwn best interests. How can yon do it? Weaver hates the South. Why should any Southern man forget his man hood and the dead heroes of the "Lost Cause," and vote for a man who has cursed their niemorv and revile 1 their living conn ade? The death of Mr. Thou, Hill, of Hillsboro, who was a nephew of our venerab"e townsman Dr. Jno. II. Hill, Sr . occurnd in New York yee tiuday. His remains will' be taken to Pittsboro, in this Stare, for inter ment. He was a vouusr man of courtly manners and congenial ttmperament, and possessed a wide circle of friends who will be deeply grieved at hw wnriaiely death. lie married Miss ltuffln, of Hillsboro, daughter of the late Judye Ruffin, and 6he, with one child, survives him. A most enjoyable llallow-een " party was given by Miss Mattie L-e, at htr hospitable home in this city Mondaj evening, complimentary to her young lady visitor, Miss HojihU Jones, of Newbern, which was at tended by a perfect galaxy of hr - young la,dy and genfciemeu friends. A,ll ihj Hollow-eeu sports of "legend ry lore", and n.any new ones, were indulged in with a zet and nv rriment that gave fleet wings to th jojov hours of the evening' brilliant tertainnieut. It was an altogether enivable occasion and will long be pleasantly remembered. On Tuesday next." will be the great general election of the nation the most important in the history of onr government will be on. Let every Democrat gird on his armor and work all this week, and on Tues day next let no Democrat depart from the field till the battle is fought and won And the victory is ours, Apa.thj ; w.Ul lost us many Totes, and no matter how great our majority we have not one yote to spare. No army, howeyer nnmerous and invincible, ever has a single man to spare: they are all equally cher ished and cared for: so it is with the voters of a party. Let us alt stand together"and let none an depart from his party fealty. So near to the election, when the silent battle of ballots is to be fought that is to decide the issues at stake between a free people, the minds of voters should be preserved in calmness and without passion. Personal difficulties should be avoided, if possible, and if unavoida ble, they should not be given prom inence above the issues behind them. The purpose of this brief is obvious to our readers. It is written after the advise of wise counsel, Demo cratic to the core. Let us ralh to the Democratic ticket, and bury un der an avalanche of ballots Emm, who "prefers negro rule or anything else in North Carolina" to the hoD est administration that has charac terized our grand old State under Demotratic supremacy. Pat Exum, "the Ripper" is said to have said that he has all the news paper notoriety he is looking for and now he is going in for war and war to the knife. He whips out his long, keen-bladed knife with a blood thirstiness that is appalling in the Reform candidate for Governor of this great and law-abiding State of North Carolina. Reform indeed ! Pat Exum told a gentleman in this city that the Democrats had. offered him $20,000 to retire from the field. Does any even any Third party man believe this? Exum threatened the life of a citizen of Goldsboro Fii day on the public streets in the presence of Police-officer Denning and a number of by-standers. Is Ettch a man fit for even the candidacy i t Governor much less the actual office? From the reform that is to come through tbe leadership of "Pat Exum, the Ripper," good Lord, de liver us, we devoutly pray ! Heaven forbid that such a man, or his con fere, Furches, should ever attain to the highest office in the gift of the people of North Carolina. The Literary Society connected with the local Young Men's Chris tain Association made its debut on Thursday night last and the event was a most enjoyable one. Asso ciation Hail had been tastefully dec orated for the occasion and amid tbe brilliant illuminations presented a handsome appearance. A select audience was oresent which seemed to be mnch edified by the eloquence of the embryo orators. The exer cises of the evening opened with a program of instrumental music from the Gem City Banjo Club, which, to judge by the applause, was much appreciated. The debate on the subject : "Resolved, That the pursuit of an object affords more pleasure than its possession," was hen taken up. The affimative ar gument was very ably presented by Messrs. W. L. Humphrey, D. T. Sasser and C. M. Levistcr; and they were very effectiyely replied to by Messrs. A. U. Kornegay, L. B. Humphrey and J C. Lewis. The bord of judges, composed of Messrs. Henry Lee, W. H.

Tbe moh collected at the eonrt home door and detailed Bud Parrott, a noted desperado, to at tack Df. Sanderlin and break np the speaking.

The attack was -wholly without invocation, a Dr. Sanderlin is knowu to on one of the fairest and most conrfdous speakers in the State. The most intense indigna tion has been aroused in the mountain counties by this dastardly alttumpt at assassination. A great .many honest-minded people were deceived in 1884, and they know it now, by theBtoriesof disaster that they -were assured would follow tbe election of Mr. Cleveland. It was tbe fault of their deceiver that time, but it will be their own fault if they let themselves to be similarly iru poeed upon iu this campaign. THE FORCE BILL NOT DEAD IT IS ALREADY CASTING ITS SHADOW ALL OVER NORTH CAROLINA IN THE FORM OF FEDERAL SU PERVISORS OF ELECTIONS. Let Democracy Rise and Assert Itself. Let Freemen Beware. They say the Force Bill is a dead issue in this campaign the wily Radios and anarchical Third par ty ites and Uideonites in disguise; but it is not dead, neither does it slum ber : it is the livest and most hope ful and most powerful issue the Radicals hav, and no man who is a freeman in soul and a patriot at heart should shut bis eyes to the facts that stalk at noon-day or close his ears to the -warning cry of Dem ocracy in the watch-tower. In this issue will be seen news of the first fruit of the appointment of Federal supervisors in an eastern county. A Halifax registrar refused to exhibit his book and two Federal supervisors one a Gideonite and the other a negro took him under arrest. A correct interpretation of the election law warranted the regis trar in his refusal; but e ven if there were a case against him, the purpose to persecute him and to terrorize other election officers and Democrats generally is shown iu his having oeeu dragged to Jttaieign tor a pie- HmLnary hearing, instead of his hav lag been carried before a local United States commissi oner to be bound over. It is for such business as this that thes spies and hirelings are chosen They are not appointed in the inter est of pure elections;, but to intimi date Democrats by holding before th;m the terrors of Federal author ity. Tbe simple appointment of these supervisors is in its very self a menace to the citizens, and such demonstrations of authority as this in Halifax are for the purpose of frightening timid Democrats and keepiug them froro the polls. Again, there came to this ci!j yesterday and direct to uur office Mr. G. W. Richardson, an intelli gent and upright gentleman from Core Creek, Gi a ven County, v.-bo is the Registrar of hia precinct, and he reported to us that two election supervisors, one negro and ooe '"Gid eonite ", had been appointed for his polling place and, that they waited upon him Monday and demanded his registration books, which he, of course and properly refused to give up, whereupocu they threatened him with "Mogul" Shaffer and con dign Federal punishment; but up to this writing Air, liichardsoa is hold ing his books ready for the election next Tntsday. The secret of the whole design is that these Federal supervisors and intimidating demands are being an pointed and made chiefly at preciacts where the Democratic vote is knoion to be largely 5n tbe majority. Their nefarious purpose is to get up dis turbances at these places and there upon tnrow out tne wnole vote as irregular, thereby making immense g,aiias for tbe Republican ticket. Democrats, white men of the Old North Stat-, patriotic aous of her sacred oil,will youquietly suffer such high-hand d, open appalling usur pation of your rights as free men xne days are lew Between now and the election. You should be up and at -work, it remains t be seen whether you will permit yourselves to be brow-beaten and deprived of your rights at the polls, and ot your votes after they are -polled, or whether yon will resent this inter ferencw and emphasize your resent ment by -renewed zeal and determi nation to overthrow the party that threatens us all. We have no donbt of the effect which this intended bulldozing will have. And yet there are people, among us who say that the Jborce bill is scare-crow, a bugaboo, and a dead issvi beside. HORK PROOF That S. Ot ho Wilson Did Organize Gid con's Hand. ltaleigli Chronicle. The following letter from Mr. EL Dunn, of Vance county, to Mr, M. L. Reed, of Bimcombe, has been forwarded to Chairman Sim.' moua with permission to publish. Hehedeksos, N.C, Oct. 22, '92 J, i, 2leedf E8q. JSiltmore, JSf. C. Deab Sir: In reply to your let ter of enquiry just received, I beg to say I was present in Goldsboro when you were initiated into tbe order known as "Gideon's Band byMr.S.OthoWilson.and my recol lection confirms your statement as to what transpired at the time ot your initiation. I was initiated into the order by Mr. Wilson at Morehead City on the night of the 14th of August, 1891, in the presence of several gentlemen, among thorn a promi nent candidate on the State ticket of the People's party. I notice you do not remember the exact terms of the obligation, but that the ob ligation was a Tigid one. Upon this point I beg to say, further re plying to yoni letter, that the fol lowing is an exaet copy of the ob ligation administered to me at the time of may initiation: Here follows the oath as pub lished in Thb Argus last wees:. I consented to become a mem ber of the Band of Gideon after being afsu-ed most positively that t had no political significance and that I could retire at any time I saw fit. l should not nave l lined the order if I had supposed it was the purpose to nse it tor political purposes or to improperly direct or control the councils of t he A11U ancc, and as eoon as I became cona inced that it was being used to S'nrlher political echemea and to in- iliience in that direction the noble order to which we both balong, I at oncjo severed my connection with it. My first n8i.icin that the order was being nsed in this war was at the speaking at Henderson by Mr. Marion Butler and Col. Harry Skinner, when I received a eign from a gen tl err an which I recog nized to be a sign of the order known as "Gideon's Band." It is not necessary for me to detail what this gentleman said to me subse quently which further arenscd my suspicions. These suspicions were strengthened, and confirmed at a meeting ol the Alliance delegates to tho Democratic State Conven tion of 1892, held in Raleigh the night before the convention nssem bled. Iu this meeting Mr. S. Otho Wilson suggested and advocated the retirement of the Alliance del egatcs when tbe convention reach ed the election of delegates to the National Democratic Convention to be held at Chicago, and I oppos ed the suggestion. Dunne the discussion Mr. Wilson gave a sign which I recognized as a sign of the order, and a delegate touched me and I stopped and we retired to gether when he suggested to me that I should cease from opposition and let the thing go on. I then became thoroughly satia fied that that order was being given a political significance, and on my return home 1 eurrende;ed to Mr Wileon bis papers and I have had nothing to do with it since. I send yon a letter written to me by Mr. Wileon, in reply to one written to him by me. 1 make this statement because am satiened tnat my duty to my btate and lellow-citizens impera tively demands that 1 should break silence abont tbe matter which seems to me a serious menace to the peace and good order of our people, and because I believe it is my duty to the Alliance, whose cause is oemg rumea uy tins se . . cret ord r. I am still an Alliance- man, and I loiucd this order to serve the Alliance cause, but I am now eatiefied that so far from sery ing this cause, it is destroying it and that my duty as an Alliance- man, as well as a citizen, demands that I should take these steps to secure tne suppression oi me "Band."

RECENT REPUBLICAN DECLARA TIONS IN FAVOR OF THAT REVOLUTIONARY MEAS URE. -I - n Exposure of the . conspiracy or Radical Usnrpat ionists Against, Free Government and the Prosperity of the South. ur Honrs And Our liberties Are Threatened Utterances of leading Republicans in regard to the Force Bill reveal in a startling manner the dangers that I threaten the country from the revo-1 utionary schemes of the party in power, inere can be no doubt of the intention of the Republicans to pass the bill if they succeed in carry ing thia election. No sincere lover of his country can contemplate calmly the far reaching consequences of this legis- ation. The programme means the usurpation f . -, . . i a" political power oy the federal Uoyern ment, the politi- j cal and industrial enslavement ofldencetbat the other colleges in the South. It means the ultimate! I overthrow of our free institutions , ... , , I ana tne seuiug up oi an oiigarcny upon their ruins. It means the dis- truction of the Republic. The hour has come when all patriots should stand shoulder to shoulder in defeuce of their homes and their freedom as American citizens as against the j revolutionary plans of a party of desperate political conspirators. Look at these utterances: With the Lodge National Elec tion Law in full force over the South, and various Democratic strongholds np Noth, we may confi dently look for a different state of political affairs than now exists. New York City will then return several more Republican Congress men that at present, while more than twenty negro representatives from the South will render the Ke publican control of the future Con gresses absolutely secure and safe. As Mississippi, bouth Carolina, and Florida contain a large majority of negroes, ana as there are enough white Republicans in Alabama, Ar kansas, North Carolina and Louis iana acting in concert with the ne groes to put these States in the Re publican line, we can confidently look in the future for seven South ern States to he reliably Republican. This means a gain of fourteen Sen ators and at least twenty represen WhPn through th oneratior, of the Lodre National Election Law six or seven Southern States shall discard Democratic rule we shall look confi- dently to see some measures done the blacks, who have so long been defrauded of their rights. Heavy taxes should be laid upon the prop- erty of the whites to develop and extend the public school system in these btates. foeparate schools tor the two races should be abolished, and the plan of bringing the youth ot ootn colors into close ana equal relations in scnoois ana cnurcnes ... . . , i given a fair trial, as one of the most potent elements to break down the detestable Bourbonism of the South. The right of the black to bear arms should be Guaranteed to him as well a3 all the social rights intended to be secured him by the passage of the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments to the Constitution. The State laws asrainst the intermarriage of the races, should he repealed, and anv discriminations against the black in matters of learning trades or ob taining employment should be made a criminal offence, while tbe colored man's right to hold office should be sacredly protected and recognized. A few years of this policy will solye the race problem satisfactorily." National Republican, Washington, JJ. D. C., July 3, 1891. I give notice now that I shall continue to press my Force bill, and I intend to pass it before I die, too. I shall pass the Forca bill yet you see if I don't." John I. JJavenmru United otates iu- vervisor of elections in Aeto York City, and author of the Lodge Eorce Bill, believe friends say that rr it IjmftOTQtTC bill issue in this campaign, I don't think there is, bnt I think there ouaht te be. This is the most important question in this campaign, and I would a good deal rather have negro domination in the South than the domination that prevails there at the present time." Ex-Senator JngalLs, qf Kansas in a speech at Tqpeka,Oct. 9, 1892. "If tbe Democrats iiad never been allowed to regain control of tne State , Governments of the South, Northern capital would never have embarked in the devel opment of Southern coal and iron ; and the surest and speediest way to put a stop to from men - who this competition are our political enemies, as well as our coKimcrctal rivals, is to carry through and en force measures like the Lodge jiKe Election law. And if we can once more get them : into the condition they were before 1876 we won t near any more aooui cheap iron ami cheap cotton goods from the South. They will have other things to think about.

The address of the processors of Amherst College in favor tt Cleve land has suggeted to the New York World can vas of the fac ulties of other Eistern Colleges. The result gives a very interesting illustration of the widespread re volt among educated nd think ing men against the recent policy of the Repnb'ican paity. The extent of this revolt at Har vard is already familiar. Harvard was formerly described as a "hot bed of abolitionism" and it was the school from which the Repub lican party drew many of its earli est and ablest teacheis. Even the reconstruction policy and Grant ism did not shake the Republican- ism of the great Massachusetts university : bnt as the party grew more and more closely identified with the high tariff policy the Har vard professorii dropped away from it. In 1888 iour-htths ot them Toted for Cleveland and this year it is said that Harrison men are hard to find among the faculty. This is not extraordinary, for the teaching of Harvard has al- ochvh hpp.n enntrsrv to the nrinei o!e of a raon0poly tariff. The in j j - teresting point just now is the evi- Massachusetts hold the same polit i j - a a. nr mi; l: l icai auuuae. ai nnam, w,x. graduated Gainold, and where - . n .-,u - i every Ulciuuci ui mo inuunj mm the exception of the professor of political economy voted for him, it is now said that all but two will vote for Cleveland this year. Am herst is the other important college in Massachusetts and the declara tion of its professors has been al ready published. Even more interesting is the change reported at Connecticut's seat ot learning, 1 ale, where tne Cleveland men in the faculty are said now to outnumber the Harri- non men four to one, nearly all of the younger instructors being Detn ocrats. These are tho great cen tres of instruction in New Eng land, and their influence is suffi cient to account tor the evident drift ot the younger men away from the party of monopoly. In the minor colleges further east, like Bowdoin, in Maine, and Dartmouth, in New Hampshire, the correspondents fonnd little or no change to report, and the same may be said of most of the colleges in New York and Pennsylvania included in the inquiry, with the exception of Lehigh University, at Bethlehem, in this State, where it is said that ten of the thirteen members of the faculty will vote for Cleveland, though Dr. Lamber ton and Dr. Coppee are the only lwo wuo were noi xmpuuncwia ue- There are some other interesting points in the count of the colleges, I but these are suihcient to lllus' trate the unquestionable tendency of educating sentiment, it was from the colleges of the country that the revolt against slavery re ceived its earliest and strongest unDulse. and tbe sentiment thev 1 nlanted spread steadily till it reached the masses of the people ar,ei nwnnt awav r averv before it i r- -j j in thn mrri.rn movement against tbe 8:avery of monopoly the edu cated and thinking men are only a little in advance of the crowd.

Governor Flowr,ofNew York is not "a daisy," ne s a duo Flower; he was never born to blush unseen and waste his sweetness on the desert air. He isn't built that way. He says Cleveland is a -com ing 50,000 strong. The party that tells the people that me farmer's products are pro tected bv the McKinley bill, and that the tax the tariff places upon trade is paid by foreigners, adver tises itself as a party unworthy of confidence or support.
