YES, A L ARE. " ON 10" 1 Ht'R GAME
Last week we tailed upon the
(ounty and township chairmen to
More the county ronimieaioners on
the ilrat Monday in S-j.u-mhrr uim!
to name the men that th- v.ant. d
to represent them arf poll hoM-rd at
the coming election, ami further to
call upon them to appoint tin- men
selected according to the spirit and
letter of the htw.
This seems to have aroused and
excited the Democratic machine
from one end of the State to the other.
One paper cried out that we were
calling for ". -liable." The Ila
leih correspondent of the Wilming
ton Messenger said that the "cominis-i-.ioners
would not be intimidated" (to
do right and to obey the law) but
that thcj would appoint just who
they pleaded regardless of the wishes
of any body but the Democratic ma
chine. The Charlotte Observer also gets
excited and sa s :
"Evidently Mr. Ilntltr is 'on to' their the
Iii iiKM iaU) -'ame, anil we 'lit him on no-tut-that

IfiiiU Iemo ratie. convictions cannot he se
cured. Mr. l'.utler knows that a mere in
dictment for a criminal offense constitutes
almost as much of n disgrace as does convic
tion ; and hesides, the verdict of a jury is a
very uncertain tliinj? and there is no telling
hut what some of these conspirators might
hy chaiiee he t'onvicted if the eases nuainst
them were vigorously pushed. At all events
it is worth the effort, und as Mr. liutler al
ready knows that these crimes are calculated
he will he w ithout excuse if he does not for
tify himself with evidence of their commis
sion." Yes, we are "on to" your game and
we intend to have every ballot box
stuffer indicted and sent to the pen
itentiary if possible. And this is
why we want and need at least two
men selected by the People's party
for poll holders at each voting place
in the State who can furnish the
evidence to convict the ballot
thieves. But if the commissioners
refuse to obey the spirit and letter
of the law how will it be possible for
anybody to know what is done by
the ballot jugglers ? A man selected
fiom the People's party by the com
missioners is not a representative of
the party. The Democrats select
the men to represent their party and
the People's party should and must
select the men to represent us for
otherwise we would not be represent
ed according to the spirit of the law.
Now let the Charlotte Observer say
whether or not it is in favor of the
just and fair thing? Ix't it say
w hether or not it is in favor of the
commissioners appointing the men,
at least two for each voting place, se
lected by us for poll holders?
The Observer says that if the bal
lot box thieves cannot be convicted
before the courts, that we can at
least indict them, and that would
bring almost as much disgrace as
sending them to the penitentiary.
But we will inform the Observer
that it w ill be well to make some
changes in the Solicitors in order
that indictments may always be
made. How can a Solicitor or a
Judge be expected, to attack his own
title to the office that he holds ? A
Judge's title to oQice should be as
spotless as the ermine he wears
WOULD JUDGE SHEPHERD DO IT?
There is no man in the Democrat
ic party (or out of it) in North Car
olina who is the superior of Judge
Connor in honor, iutegrity and fit
ness for the Supreme court bench.
Yet he must be' abused and villified
by his own party because he will not
bow to the party machine and allow
it to set up the standard for his
f judgment and conscience. A party
that will abuse one of the best, if not
the best, man in it because he will
nt sacrifice his manhood for the
selfish desires of the machine, is a
party that is dangerous to human
liberty. When a party jrrows that
intolerant it is time to overthrow
it Such persecntion would corrupt
the manhood of all who are not
blessed with as much stability, firm
ress and strength of character as
Judge Connor. What does the ma
chine want him to do? They want
Judge Connor to insult the thou
sands of men in North Carolina who
not only admire him as a man but
who also approve of his course as a
J udge on the Superior court bench.
They want him to stultify himself

14 H i TH.S HOA'L FROM THE V ACri.NE'
The sudden howl that has come
from the Democratic machine
very significant. It is the cry thai
betrays them. Every Democrat that
we meet claims that he is in favor of
honest election.-?. We have had
thousands of them to tell us that
they had rather a dozen times for
the paity to be defeated, than to get
in Power bv disfranchising a singlt-
1
voter or by stealing a single vote af
ter it. is cast. These same nu n have
claimed that there were no frauds
in the last election and that they
would not stay in a party that would
not only commit fraud but Unit
would wink at it or encourage it.
When such claims were made, wi
have always called attention to the
character of the men appointed by
the commissioners for judges of the
election. Iu hundreds of instance
and in at least 5U speeches on the
stump we have show n that the com
missio'nerf after appointing three ot
the live judges that are satisfactory
to the Democratic party, that thei
they should appoint for the other
two judges men that were satisfac
tory to the 1'eoples party. We hav
appealed to fair minded men, and
asked if that was not right and in
every case they have answered that
it was. They have not only said
that right but they have farther
said that their commissioners were
ready to do it. Then we have asked
why they did not do it in 1892. In
dozens of counties they have answer
ed that no one representing the Peo
ple's party had recommended men
for judges of the election and that in
each case the commissioners were
forced to select men themselves. And
this is correct. For when the Peo
ple's party does not select and rec
ommend men satisfactory to them
selves for judges of the election,
they have no right to blame the
commissioners, unless the men ap
pointed are evidently incompetent
Now acting on this principle,
which was approved by Democrats,
everywhere we went to speak, we
called upon the committees of the
People's party in every county and
township of the State to go before
the commissioners and recommend
men who would be satisfactory to
the People's party for the two judges
of the election which the law says
shall be appointed from an opposite
political party. The minute this
call (w hich we thought was approved
by every honest Democrat iu the
SUite) was made, at once there went
up a howl from every machine cuckoo
organ in the State. They cried out
that "Butler is trying to bull-doxe
the commissioners!" They said that
to suppose that the commissioners
would not have the wisdom to know
exactly who to appoint to represent
the People's party was an insult to
the commissioners. They said if the
People's party were to rt commend
good honest men for judges of the
election that it would be an effort
to "intimidate the commissioners,
The Raleigh correspondent of the
Wilmington Messenger and Char
lotte Observer who no doubt went
to interview Pou and Simmons and
who uo doubt drew his inspiration
from that sweet smelling pair of
possible "boss McKanes," telegraphed
to the above papers that the commis
sioners would pay no attention to
any recommendations, but that they
would appoint not only three of just
such men as the machine wanted
from the Democratic ranks, but also
two just such men as the machine
might pick out from the People's
party. No man who is in favor of
honest elections is in favor of aay
such course. How can a man who
is in favor of honesty be opposed to
doing what is fair and honest?
There may be some boards of county
commissioners who will ref u; e to do
the fair honest thing, and who wil
at the dictation of a corrupt ma
chine violate the spirit and letter of
the law, but we do not believe there
are many, we will see. In the mean
time let our friends from every town
ship in the state recommend imn for
judges of the election.
The only industry which has been
stimulated by Democratic tariff mak
ing is the manufacturing of Popu
list votes.
7.-E SJGAR TR-J5T 3 L'.
The engar tnist ha triumphed.
Its infamous tariff bill is no a law.
V "told you so." The aas rtion
Lias -xi made in this paper time and
gain, that every Democratic repre
r. -uLative from North Carolina would
vote for the trust bill. It was re-
uted as a reflection on their integ--itv,
born-sty, consistency and intel-
'Igence. "No boneot, consistent
). mocrut can vote for the monstros--y,"
was the answer. "The impu
tation is libelous and seandalou?,"
is what the Democratic newspaper
said. What, Woodard, Grady, Alex
ander, Hranch, vote for a bill that
violates every principle of tariff re
form ! Impossible: It is a lie.
.Never .
Tut C'At."CA.-iA.v was right. It
was no reckless statement In voting
or it they were impressed by tin
Kjsitive statement made on the floor
of the House by M. W llson, that it
meant ik,OuUHMj to the sugar trust.
What is their excuse ? "It is better,''
they say, "than the McKinley law."
1'hat is demagoguery. According
to the highest Democratic authority
the bill is the product of "party per-
idv and partv dishonor," It wa
pass-il at the dictation of the su-ai
trust and other protected monopolies
We piote only Democratic testimony
to sustain this assertion. I he Louis
ville Courier-Journal says:
Instead of a hill redeeming the pledges, a
mongrel piehald of patches and pu.siilani
mity. a grotes.iie hodgepodge of pretense
and )ettifoggiii, a nondescript abortion ol
in ometf-ney', selfish ihss, cow'ardii e, and
lrfacheiy is the outcome.'
1 1 al ter, a Democratic leader in
the House said :
"It pas.-ed and branded as a Democratic
measure, it will stamp ui ai a lot of imbe
ciles, and our managers in both Houses as
drivelling idiots."
What does Cleveland himself say
about it ?
His last and only word is the Wil
son letter. He does not retract it or
modify it or explain it. He practi
cally reaffirms it by refusing to sign
the law. He brands it with the
stamp of "perfidy and dishonor." It
faces the people under his stinging
impiiry : "How can we face the peo
ple after indulging in such outrage
ous discrimination and violations of
principle? "
That is enough. The case is made
out. There are other witnesses.
Among them is the Wilmiugton
Messenger. We note by way of va
riety what that paper says about the
bill:
"Tlie House has accepted the Senate pro
tection hill that makes a surplus of $U8,UOU,
ooo, gives 7,000,000 annually to the giant
Sugar Trust, taxes hundreds of household
necessaries from 40 to 120 per cent, or more,
taxes the ioor man's sugar, taking from the
iieot'le nearly t.X),0w0,0O0 in this tax on sug
ar alone and when it is not needed, and en
dorsing hy their votes the theory and prin
ciple of high protection which the Democra
tic platform so incontinently, so vigorously
damns, branding it as "robbery .'
"Plain, honest, sincere people wlro know
nothing of the tricks and sellouts of the
regulation politician will not be liable to un
derstand how any party can so far forget the
past, the declarations of the history of
the Democratic party. The Democrats
among the people will be amazed, jossibly,
at the performances in Washington. Others
will not be amazed at anything that may
occur, after John Sherman became the
counsellor and the engineer of the silver re
peal bill last year in the Senate."
We rest the case for the present.
POITS PUSSILLANiMlTY.
Last week we told our readers how
Jim Pou, the chairman of the Dem.
Ex. Com. of Johnston county, took
the advantage of Mr. Creech, th?
chairman of the county People's
party executive committee. Mr. Pou
wrote a notice of the joint discus
sion at Smithfield between the Peo
ple's party and the Democratic par
ty. Mr. Pou signed the notice and
then asked Mr. Creech to sign it
which he did, supposing that of
course Mr. Pou would write it prop
erly. Mr. Pou slipped into the jio
tice a paranthetical expression, saying
that Mr. Cooke would be elected to
congress next fall. Mr. Pou no
doubt thought it was very smart to
do this and then get Mr. Creech to
sign unsuspectingly. Mr. Creech is
above stooping to a little thing like
this, and naturally did not suspect
Mr. Pou. If Mr. Creech had been
dealing with a man who had been
convicted of forgery, a common
criminal or a black-leg, he would
have watched him even in the word
ing of an ordinary notice for a joint
discussion. The lialeigh News &
Observer published the notice as
Pou had written it with Mr. Creech's
signature to it and then wrote an
editorial the next day ridiculing Mr.
Creech. We suppose Mr. Pou in
spired this editorial which was equal
ly as little and as unworthy as Mr.
Pou's conduct. And this is the man
who is chairman of the ejcative
committee of the Democratic party
of North Carolina. We feel safe in
saying that not a single good man in
the party will approve of such de
testable conduct. Character is shown
in little things, and this one act of
Chairman Pou shows correctly the
calibre and character of the man.
Since the above was written we
have received a letter from Mr. Por ,
which we would published if he had
not marked it "personal." He Bays
that he did not read the notice to
Mr. Creech, and that it was light
.
I enough for Mr. Creech to had rcaI
it He further says that Mr. I r-eth
eaid the notice was all right But
he does not deny that he wrote the
notice just hs published. The fact
that he so wrote the notice, shows
that he did it aa a catch, as a smart
little trick. Ererybody (includirg
Mr. Pou) knows that Mr. Creech
would never have signed that notice
if he had notie-d that it referred to
Mr. Cooke as the neit congreei-mau.
Mr. I'ou's own confession stamps
him as a verv grnall mart.
PARTiES AND THE JUD.C ADf.
The Republican State conventit n,
as told in our news columns last week
endorsed the resolution adapted by
the People's party for a non-partisan
Judiciary. They also endorsed the
ticket selected by us. The Demo
cratic party is now the only party
that is opj)osed to a non-partisan Ju
diciary. This is their misfortune
and not our fault. We can make
the principle triumph without their
co-operation an ! drive them to de
feat for opposing. Now let the
People's party and all other parties,
that favor lifting the Judiciary out of
politics, proceed to agree on the best
man in each of the six Judicial dis
tricts for Superior court Judge.
Let us select the best man without
regard to his party affiliations. If in
following this high and just prin
ciple makes it necessary to select
every one of these Superior court
Judges from the Democratic paity,
then The Catcasiax is ready to do
it, if it takes every one from the Re
publican ranks, then we are ready
to do it. The fact that the Demo
cratic machine is opposed to a non
partisan Judiciary should be no bin
derance but rather an incentive to
endorse any man they have nomi
nated who is every way satisfactory
and competent. In other districts
where they have named men unfit,
let us select some man from the
Democratic party like Judge Con
nor and vote for him. If there is
no such man in the Democratic par
ty, then of course select him from
some other party.
A DEMOCRATIC STROMGHOLD CAP
TURED. We have seen a number of Popul
ists who were at the joint discussion
between the People's party and the
Democratic party at Smithfield last
week. They are delighted with the
results. One said that if there were
not twice as many People's party
men present as there were Demo
crats, then the Democrats certainly
helped the People's party cheer Cap
tain Kitchin. Everybody was dis
appointed at Cooke's lame effort to
defend the Democratic party. But
how could he ? Johnston is the
strongest Democratic county in the
State, and the outlook now is that
the People's party will carry it.
WHY THEY STEAL FROM US.
The Winston Republican claims that the
Democrats have stolen the Topulists' thun
der on the silver question. But it strikes us
that the Piepublicans at their tState conven
tion on Thursday not only stole their silver
plank from the Populists, but they took the
whole Populist party along with it. Ual
eigh News it Observer.
Everybody knows where the Peo
ple's party stands on the silver ques
tion as well as all other questions.
It is true that every other party
when it wants to gain popularity
steals from our platform. The peo
ple will vote the People's party tick
et, so it makes but little difference
with them as to how much or how
little of our platform the parties en
dorse, or whether or not they are in
earnest when they do it. The Peo
ple's party is right and both old
parties have admitted it by stealing
from our platform.
Chairman Wilson, leader of the
Democratic forces in the House,
stood on the floor of congress and
denounced the Senate bill, saying
that it would put $40,000,000 into
the pockets of the Sugar Trust.
Every Democratic Congressman from
North Carolina approved and ap
plauded. In less than a week Chair
man Wilson voted for this same bill
without the doting of an "i" or the
crossing of a "t," and every North
Carolina Democratic Congressman
followed him and did likewise. This
is not only eating crow, but it is a
base surrender to the Trust. If the
Senate bill was wrong, then the
House should have forced the Senate
to accept the House bill, or done
nothing. Then the responsibility of
defeat would have rested on the Sen
ate alone. As it is now they are
both equality guilty.
Cleveland cuckoos have bolted
from the Democratic party in South
Carolina, because that party refused
to swallow the new goldbug edition,
Cleveland and Sherman. They
would do the same thing in North
Carolina, if the ptople instead of the
machine had charge of the party.
In fact in 1891 when it looked as if
the machine would be defeated
permanently and that the people,
through the Alliance, would perma
nently get control of the State, the
machine and the railroad click had
several conferences with certain Re
publican leaders preparing to bolt if
necessary from the Democratic party.

employed in securing the nomination
of Kansom candidates.
kaxsom's only hope
is in the Western couuties, and it is
based upou the manipulation of the
revenue machine. The same influ
ence that secured the nomination of
collector Carter's brother for Judge
will be used to nominate Kansom
candidates. Iu every turn of the
road after leaving the Catawba river
Jarvis will And his way blocked by
the revenue gang. Even tempered
as he is, conditions may arise that
will exasperate him to personal war
fare. He wants to avoid this, he
says, and will not mention Hansom's
name in the campaign uu'ess com
pelled to do it.
AN EXI'KCTEP SFXSATIOX.
A common belief obtains here
that at one time Hansom was ready
to betray the Western couuties and
elect Jarvis for the short term. It
is positively asserted by Jarvis'
friends that Kansom did submit a
proposition of that sort. Jarvis re
fuses to talk about the matter. He
neither affirms or denies. To speak
of it, according to his closest friends,
involves the betrayal of a confidence;
that he is capable of any such thing
is indignantly resented. All the
same the story is credited and it may
some dav soon become public proper
ty. If true, it will suggest a most
remarkable coincidence in Hansom's
Senatorial career. The story of his
admission to the Senate 523 years ago
may be told in this connection in a
subsequent letter.
KANSOM THE PIVOT.
Undeniably the State campaign
will turn on Hansom's candidacy for
re-elecaon. That will be the pivot.
His assumed vulnerability excites
the hopes and aspirations of numer
ous candidates, but there will only
be two Eastern candidates. The
contest is between Kansom aud Jar
vis. The suggestion that both may
be dropped is idle talk. Hansom has
every advantage aud may secure a
caucus nomination in defiance of
popular sentiment It will be effect
ive through the machine, aud the
fact that Simmons has made so little
impression in the Eastern counties
has no significance whatever.
CAMPAIGN ASSESSMENTS.
A systematic assessment of all fed
eral office holders, including fourth
class postmasters, is in contempla
tion. The campaign collections will
be made through the collectors of
fices in Kaleigh and Asheville. TJn
der the civil service law any collec
tions for political contributions i3 a
misdemeanor and subjects the solici
tor to indictment. Pou expects, so
it is here reported, to raise $50,000
for campaign purposes from that
one source. Hansom will contribute
$1,000 on his personal account aad
the sugar trust may be relied upon
to make wbat.-ver additional contri
bution may be necessary to secure
his re-election. A prominent Raleigh
Democratic is authority for the
statement that the State committee
will have all the money it can use in
the campaign. It is to be a life and
death struggle with the machine.
The managers from Ransom down
appreciate the desperation of their
cause in the face of the organized
and solidified opposition. Their one,
abiding, stimulating, blissful hope
is in Avery's interpretation and
Chairman Pou's execution of the
State electiou law. It is fraud or
defeat.

pointed in Mr. Cooke's speech. I
may nave coinmiiieu an error in
having my extectations of him so
high, still if that was an error I got
it from his speech of acceptance and
I am not to blame.
Mr. Cooke began his speech by
sa)ing he was embai ra.ssetl, then
told or little joke, he then called the
chairman of the P. P. Kx. Com. of
Johnson county to a scat on the
stand, I thought for the purpose of
telling the people that he was one
Democrat who n cognized tl e exist
ance of the People's party as an
organization. In this, however, 1
was mistaken. . I found out during
the progress of his speech that he
was called to the stand for the pur
pose of ridicule. Now, while this
was being done Mr. Cooke appeared
to be very courteous to Mr. Creech,
disclaiming any purpose or intention
o wounding his feelings, he simply
wanted to ask him "some questions.'"
He did occasionally ask Mr. Creech
some questions, putting them in that
lawyer-like way that the answer.
might create merriment to the Demo
crats in the crowd. He consumed
the greater part of his opening houi
in this way, without touching at
length upon any of the leading ques
tions of the day. His speech re-
nnndeu loo ot a law yer who was try
ing a cause before a jury, knovviut;
his client guilty. His speech was
greeted with very slight applause
from tlie vaat crowd of people, M r.
Kitchin arose and for an hour and a
quarter dealt out such blows in
denunciation of democratic short
comings, that actually brought such
yells of applause from the multituth
that made me feel sorry for M r.
Cooke. Mr. Cooke in his rejoinder
showed signs of anger, and he had
to make some allusion to his position
in the party. He stood upon the
Chicago platform in Jarvis style,
that is as interpreted by the South
ern end of the machine. He was
bimettalist, believed iu free coinage
of silver at the ratio of 10 to 1,
thought Clevelaud had done wrong,
but said he, "If one member of youi
church does wrong that is no reason
why you should destroy the church."
Here I thought if the church were
established upon a singl? dogma and
that failed then the church should
go too. So if Mr. Cooke has accept
ed the prevalent idea that Mr. Cleve
land i3 the democratic party, then
according to his own admission Un
democratic party ought to go.
1 have heard it said that Johnson
county is the possessor of the demo
cratic banner ; but if there is any
thing iu the applause given Mr.
Kitchin yesterday, with a fair and
honest election, Johnson will have
to give up the Hag.
