Why did not you spend jour br-ath and use your columns in telling the people of your party what a patriotic (statesman North Carolina had in the Honorable Marion But ler, instead of using your columns to publish the lying Rocky Mount sUndrr. No, gentlemen, one and all of you, rare nothing about the reforms that the people need. You are only serving the enemies of reform, and trying to fool the people one time more, but the Populists are standing guard on the watch tower. You are only mad with Senator i.utler because he exposed your rottenness, and be cause he broke up the bull pens and ballot-box stiilling in the grand old North State. Before he broke, that up you bad only to iix your majority and notify the canvassing boards of the hig rountys that were against, you how many votes to steal to go iu by the majority you predicted; and you had your boards so well trained that onK r to Insure the safety of lite and! they wuuld make the majority a little proferty on tho American side of ahead or your prediction, and in your PINGREE FIGHTING THE RAILROADS- Tba Fopl' 0rrnur of Mchta l 1 1 J o g U Kilrl t Com pi J tflib tb State Law.

The .Legislature of 1801 passed a law compelling railroads earning more than $:j,7UG a mile annually to issue mileage books, good for all member of a family, to be valid for two years, the rate to be 2 cents, with repayment of unused mileage at the expiration of that tlmo.

Governor liasseil is quoted in Wilmington as saying that he "Will protect Bail-' read Commissioners Caldwell and earson against the rule recently is sued by the Supreme Court of the United States to the fall extent of his resources as commander-in-chief of the State militia." He is reported as ' having advised resistance to the order of the Su preme Court, saying that the object of the removal of the Wilsons as iailroad Commissioners was to pre cipitate a conflict between the State and Federal judiciary. "I will go to jail," he is quoted as raying, "to make the question of Federal usur pation the paramount issue in the next State campaign." It is not believed here that the State Guard will respond to. his call in the event of resistance on the part of Commissioners Caldwell and Pear son. Bat the Governor's Guard, a colored company of Charlotte,' com manded by Capt. S. A. L. Taylor, has offered its services in anticipa tion of the Governor's failure to util- ze the State Guard. Mr. Claudius Dockery, speaking of the matter to-night, said that Mar shal Dockery will execute the orders of the United States Supreme Court, and if necessary, will call for troops to support his authority in the prem ises. Colonel Mott, Governor Rus sell's chief of the staff, said that it is the Governor's avowed purpose to prevent, at all hazard, the surrender of Caldwell and Pearson to the Fed eral authority. "To me," said District Attornev Holton, "it looks like a case of jail for somebody, if there is any trifling wun me processor me unitea states Court in this matter.'' And the most uncanny spot on the face of the earth at this season of the year is the District of Columbia jail- A. ... A. 1 ii is noi seriously oeuevea that com missioners Pearson and Caldwell are ooking for that sort of destiny, but hat the show of force on the part of the United States will sufficiently em phasize the conflict as a campaign issue. Lawyers here agree that the rule issued by the Supreme Court against Caldwell and reaason means the sur render of the office or imprisonment. The court, it is understood, was unan imous in ordering the issuance of the rule in this case, holding, it is said, the method employed by Caldwell and Pearson in securing possession of the Commissioners' office to be a grave offense against tb maudf-j of the court. There it onh ote pr cedent, it seems, in the hit rory of the court and the offenders it ihat case were fined and imprisoned The Charlotte Company of color ed troops is not the "Governor's Guard" but the Charlotte Ligrht In fantry, and is not commanded by "Capt.
