VIIUilMA AM ALA HA MA The Home Cornmittnn which has bad under coimi deration the cane of It. T. Thorp, contentant againat Sidney 1 Kpen.of the Fourth Virginia Congress ional District ha finished its report Tbe report covers Dffy-two printed page and devote considerable space to the election lawn of Virginia and their history. We make the following extract : "Klections hId In this section of the State have become notoriously corrupt, falae, and untrustworthy becautte ol the bad character and fraudulent prac tices of election ollijtr appointed by partisan Democratic elector ial boards, which in many instances ilagrantly, wilfully, and defiantly disregard the salutary provision of the law requir ing judges to be selected from compe tent voters known to belong to ditrer ent political parties, selecting as such judges only partisan Democrats in many case', or, often when the law is pretendedly observed, selecting as a representative of the Republican party ignorant colored men not recognized a morally or politically lit to repre sent that party. Until the fraudulent practices of election olllcers were in troduced, the Republican majority in tbe district as returned waa from r,t:O0 to t. 00) votes in all elections for a Re presentative in Congress." It will be seen from the above that the gross frauds and ballot-box stuff ing in this irginia District were made posfcible by tbe appointment of improper persons for registrars and judges of election. In fact the report above referred to maintains that the Virginia election law requires the choosing of judges of election from persons known to belong to different political patties, each cf whom shall be able to read and write, was disre garded by the Democrats who were in charge of the election machinery for tbe purpose of fraud and ballot-box stuffing to defeat the will of tbe peo ple. The same condition of affairs was brought out in the report of this elec tion committee a few days ago in the case of the Populist candidate fur Con gress from Alabama contesting the seat of Plowman who holds the certi ficate of election as a Democrat. This is nothing new to North Caro linians. Under the rule of tbe Ran soro machine, the same condition of affairs existed in this State until the ballot-box stutrers wtre overthrown in 1891. While the Democratic election law in North Carolina, as in Virginia and Alabama, required the appoint ment of at least one representative of opposite political parties for registrars and judges, vet tbe framers of tbe law cunningly and wiMi malice afore thought left the selection of these per sons of tbe opposition party to the Democratic machine. Where they wanted to commit fraud they always selected those to represent the Re publican party or tbe People's party who were either ignorant or corrupt or else Democrats in dis guise. This, of course, will ena ble any party having charge of the machinery to manipulate elections as tbey see fit. In addition, the North Carolina election law provided for a county returning board, which met a week after the election so that tbey could throw out more votes if tbe bal lot-box stutters bad not thrown out enough or stuffed tbe ballot box suffi cienMy. It was to correct these flagrant and infamous abuses which poison the very springs of free government that caused the People s rarty to make a fight for each political party to have the power to name at least one regis trar and judge of the election to repre sent it. This proposition was so emi nently fair that no one could give any good reason for objecting to it. Ut gave to each party one person, and a person of its own selecting, to guard its interest and to see if tbere was a free ballot and a fair count on tbe day of election, and when tbe votes were counted. Tbis eminently fair and just principle was engrafted into tbe new election law enacted by the Legisla ture of 1805. It was so eminently fair and just that it made no difference what party was in power, each party was entitled to a representative of its own selection to guard its interests, and therefore fraud in elections was made practically impossible. No hon estjman and no honest party can object to such a provision, and no election law is fair and just that does not contain tbis provision. But we regret exceedingly to state that tbe Republicans, who bad been cheated by tbe Democrats for a quar ter of a century, in the Legislature of 1897 joined with the Democrats and tbe bolting Populists to strike this provision out of the election of this State and return to tbe old ballot-box stuffing methods of the Democratic machine. lawyers who are thought to be prom inent Democrats, and conclusions may be drawn by tbe public according to ita ability for passing upon facts. Tbe article referred to presents tbe sub stance of tbe creation of the claim. In ls!5or HOC these claims, to wit: fTl'J 75 for Carteret county, and $1,831,- 1M from Pamlico county, were present- ru tome men Auaitor. lie arew war rant! on the btate Treasurer, Hon. W. II. Worth, for their liquidation. Tbe Treasurer declined to pay the war rants and then the matter went to the courts. 1 he understanding of The Caucasus is that tbe Supreme court decided that the State was liable for the claims A demand was made on the present Auditor for the amounts, who, admit ting the liability of the State under the decision of tbe court, held that he was unable to find any existing statute law which would justify him in issu ing the warrants, and that be could only report tbe matter to the General Assembly for adjustment. Tbis transforms tbe affair from a per sonal affront to tbe President into a national affront. Will tbe American people stomach tbis insult without a prompt apology from Spain? Tbe ad ministration owes it to tbe American people to demand such an apology. Is it possible that President McKinley will give tbe American people another rea son to believe that tbe interest of tbe Spanish bondholders, which have con trolled tbe past administration are still controlling tbis administration in its most astonishing conduct to ward the patriotic Cubans fighting the same evils that our forefathers fought and struggling for the same iberties tbatwe secured by tbe Revo lutionary war? It is time for the administration to learn that it is not representing Amer ican sentiment. Tbe spirit of 7C is abroad in tbe land, and if we are not mistaken there will be evidences of it in tbe next Congressional election. overcome tbe isflaeece and put him self oa record as a barmonizer instead of a disrupter. Tbe future will reveal his true condition. Whatever he or others may do, shun tbe cunning and dishonesty of Sbvlock and his hire lings." TiosB Dreadful Sores!' PAMICO OYSTER CASES. No question is raised as to tbe de cision of tbe court on the matter as it came bal ore that body ; but it is reas onable to suppose that if such facts as are shown in the article printed else where had accompanied tbe case when it was reviewed, there would have been a different decision. The Cau casian declares that if these claims are just, they ought to be paid; but if tbey are not just, tbey should not be paid. Of course we can only take a common sense view of tbe matter. We admit our inability to cope with tbe various technicalities that, in these times, can be twisted into almost any case, nor are we capable of sustaining a controversy of a legal character against any adept at distortion of tbe law. What appears to be fair and just to us is tbis : Any summons served on any person who actually claimed a proprietary right to any natural oyster bed can be tairly and legally charged for, but a huge "bill of costs" created by tbe simple act of writing summons for people who are dead, and for peo ple op whom they were never served, ought not to be paid. Such a process looks like a scheme for lifting cash from tbe public treasury under tbe guise of a legal proceeding. It is quite probable that the present State officers will contest tbe payment of these claims, as tbey now stand, as long as it is possible to resist them. As a matter of public importance, it would be interesting to know if tbere are many other cases in which dead men have been summoned in tbis mat ter, and how many more cases there are in which summons have never been served. If the good people of Carteret and Pamlico counties, whose names appear in tbe published lists, will assist in obtaining information along this line, and forward the same to Tbb Caucasian, it will be given to the pub lic. SjKNATOB LINDSAT AND thi kkh- TUCKT LEQISLAICBK. The Kentucky Legislature recently passed a resolution requesting Sena tor Lindsay to resign. Tbe Senator who is one of tbe.victims of tbe Cleve land "regime," in his reply calls attention to tbe fact that they bad elected him since he voted to repeal the purchasing clause of the Sherman act. The point is well taken and shows how unreliable the Democratic party has been on tbe money question. A few years ago when tbe Peoples Party was making tbe flgbt for silver alone, it riwixo IT ALU ocr. Five years ago, any many in tbe Southern county who attempted to warn tbe people against tbe money power and tbe encroachments of corporations was pretty general re garded as a mild sort of lunatic Now the Democratic Machine Journalism of tbis State is the only thing that has the impudence to condemn and de nounce such a man. But tbe people and some officials are finding it all out. An exchange says : An eminent judge of our highest State court was recently heard to saj that tbe greatest danger to tbis country is tbe ever increasing power and ar rogance of the great moneyed corpora lions, lie is right. By the exercise of tbe immense power which their money gives them they have almost universally controlled legislation, tbey have dictated tbe appointment of al most all Federal judges and, in some States, of tbe State judiciary as well. By means of combinations and trusts tbey control tbe prices of a great number of tbe articles of prime ne cessity to the people. By manipu lations very much like common lar ceny tbey gobble up all of our lines of transporation and then oppress the people by extortionate rates. They pay their contracts for such supplies as cross-ties when they please, and settle claims against them for stock killed and property destroyed only when forced to do so by tbe courts. They furnish money to cor rupt the elections and try by all They Continued to Spread in Spite of Treatment but Now They ro Healed - A Wonderful Wort.

Juit read tbe Democratic party platform. Then look at the record of the Populiat Congress ional delegation. Then look how the Democratic machine journalism sland ers that delegation. Tbis will ibow you that the Democratic machine jour nalism is either a liar in its platform professions, or it is a liar in tbe abus of the Populists. It is a liar any way you can fix it in tbis matter.

THE 8PANI-H MINISTER AMD PRESI DENT Bit K I A LET. IT LOOKS PfiUULlAK, ANT WAT. Elsewhere in this issue is published a brief account of what is known as tbe "Pamlico Oyster Cases." It is not our intention, in commenting on tbe matter, to undertake to put any one in a false light, or to charge to any one's account anything that ought not to ee charged. Tbere may or may not be Last week tbe Administration at Washington, and, indeed, tbe whole country, was shocked by the publica tion of a private letter written by the Spanish Minister at Washington to the editor of the Herald, a Spanish pa per, tbe organ of the Administration at Madrid. How the enterprising American newspapers secured a copy of this documet is yet a mystery. But tbe Spanish Minister has not denied that he wrote the letter. In fact, be admits that he wrote it.- Tbe letter contains a confession of tbe failure of tbe autonomy plan of Spain to pacify Cuba and further contains a statment that nothing but immediate great military success in the field would save Cuba to Spain. In fact, the letter contains a confession that Spain is in desparate straights and that something desperate must be done or she will lose the island and the Cubans will gain their independence. This is very important information but it is not tbe part of tbe letter that caused the greatest senation. It is a paragraph that reflects upon Presi dent McKinley and is in the following language: "Besides the natural and inevitable coarsenres with which be repeats all that the press and publio opinion of Spain has said of Weyler, it shows once more that McKinley is weak and catering to the rabble, and, besides, a low politican, who desires to leave a door open to me and to stand well with tbe jingoes of his party. Such lanuage is not only an insult to the President but it is an insult to tbe whole nation. But the greatest humiliation to our country is not from the fact that such language was used by tbe Spanish minister as from tbe fact that the President has put him self in a position to make such lan guage about him and the Administra tion possible. Tbe Spanish Minister ac cuses the American President of gross insincerity and double dealing There is no uncertainty about the charge. He has according to Minister De Lome, tried to pose as a friend of Cuban independence, while at the same time seeking to court favor with the Spanish bond-holders, as Senator Hoke Smith. While Lindsay was vot ing to repeal the last silver law on the statute book, editor Daniels, who was holding a job (pie if you please) under Hoke Smitb, was writing letters to bis paper advocating and supporting tbe course persued by Lindsay and Ransom. The action of the Kentucky Legis (ature recalls some interesting history. w nen senator Cameron voted agains) tbe Force bill, the Pennsylvania Leg islature asked him to resign. Of course he did not. In 1876 the Legislature of Wiscon sin adopted a resolution similar to that of Kentucky, calling on Senator Doolit- tle, of that State, to quit. The Legisla turewas spurred to that aciion because Doollttle had voted against tbe sub mission to the States ofttf fifteenth amendment to tbe Constitutiou of tbe United States. He paid no attention to it. Lewis Cass of Michigan, got into hot water with his State. He op posed in the Senate the Wilmot pro viso ins pite of tbe instructions of his Legislature which directed him to fa vor it. lie said that in a direct con flict between bis duty and his princi pies that he would resign his seat. In opposing the Wilmot proviso he held that no con Act bad arisen between his duty and his principles and so did not resign. He retained tbis seat until 1843, when, being nominated for the Presidency by his rarty and being de feated, be was re-elected by bis Legis lature to serve bis own term out. Tbe celebrated Henry Winter Davis was made to feel the vengeance of bis State in a somewhat similar manner. He was elected to tbe Tbirtysixth Congress as a Know Nothing. A long struggle ensued over the election of a Speaker, John Sherman being tbe Re publican. Finally tbe struggle waa ended by the choice of Mr. Penning ton, of New Jersey. Mr. Davis voted for bim and for so doing was, as he expressed it on tbe floor of tbe House "decorated with censure by the Mary land Legislature." He was a plucay man and declared to bis constituents that if tbey would not allow their rep resentaive to exercise bis own judg ment as to what was tbe best interests of tbe State,?tbat "you may send a slave to Congres, but you cannot send ma." of 1897, where they were held, the rec ord was something like this : In Massachusetts, for free silver. In New York, for nothing; but tbe nominee was a goldbug. In tbe city campaign of Greater New York, tbe Chicago platform waa absolutely ignored and abandoned, bui so-called free-silver machine Demo crats helped Tammany Hall to win. In Maryland, for gold. In Pennsylvania, for free silver, though goldbugs were nominated everywhere. And so it will be this year. And in 1900 tbe goldbug machine will have full control of the Democratic party. Watch tbe prediction. Senator Lindsay, of Kentucky, is a Democrat. Senator Murphy of New York is a Democrat. Lindsay voted against tbe Teller resolution. Murphy voted for it. The Kentucky legisla ture requested Lindsay to resign be cause he voted against the resolution. The New York legislature requested Murphy to resign because he voted for the resolution. All Democrats. All a beautiful ines ir'r i ? u I at else is tbe Dingley bill but a scheme to reduce the revenue of tbe government so that tbe Treasury will gee short of cash? Then tbere will go up the old cry about "maintaining the credit of tbe country," and then tbere will be another issue of bonds. It was s under a Democratic administration. It looks that way under a Republiean administration. I Continued Cross 1st pf-l Charles Smith, Waa. Abbwit, David Be we. Char lea Row. Mary Harris. D A Harrisoa, J A Walker. K K Whitehead.

Tbe Democratic machine journalism, I R D Borden, or pare of it, will whoop for silver an I W U Pittman, "POPULISM'S OBKATEST DAKQEB Under the above heading Major W. A. H. Hotchkiss, editor of the Nation al Republican, wiites a very thought ful and timely editorial. Maj. Hotch kiss has been a reformer since he left the Republican party to support Peter Cooper for President on tbe Greenback ticket. He has fought unceasingly for tbe principles of Peter Cooper all these years, and is now one of the leading men in the People's Party of Minneso ta. He has been a middle-of-the-road er, but his devotion to tbe cause has forced him to repudiate tbe methods employed by tbe men who got up the Memphis Conference. Telegragb dispatches state Wm. J Bryan, Marion Butler and others have gone west to consult with reference to a uniting of all the financial reform forces for the coming campaign. So! Bryan and Butler consult together Bryan thinks Butler very worthy of such consultation, and Butler believes Bryan to be honest enough to trust. Tbey can unite for reform. The Demo cratic machine journalism down here can out whoop a whip-poor-will for Bryan and can out-smell a pole-cat in their nasty abuse of Butler. We just want tbe people to analyze such facts as these, so that they may eee what a slobbering fraud and contemptible by pocrit tbis Democratic machine jour nalism is. Senator Chandler in an interview warns bis Kepulican friends that if the next campaign is tought on tbe money question, the Republican party will be inglorious;y defeated He appeals to the Administration to take at once a bold stand for Cuban in dependence and to inaugurate an American policy that will meet the approval of the people and call atten tion from the evils of the gold standard and monopoly rule. Speakine as a partisan Senator Chandler is very wise in this utterance; but if he would view tbe situation from tbe stand point of patriotism why should not these reasons be sufficient to cause bim to leave the party of trusts, com bines, and gold? Concerning the "Pamlico Oyster Cases" about which something is said in this issue, we wish to observe that more than one Democratic machine journal has admitted so-called "editor ials" and anonymous communications to their columns denouncing the State Treasurer for refusing to pay the war rants drawn by a Democratic Auditor. These "editorials," etc , were nothing less than the whine of certain lawyers, who are machine Democrats, because they were barred from tbe public crib from which they were so long accus tomed to feed. v e are compelled to appreciate the effort of the Greensboro Tele gram to be "smart." Doubtless his papa told him when be was a little financial reform. Then when tbis jour nalism finds a Republican or a Popu list who stands squarely for silver and reform, it villifies and abuses them with all tbe malevolence and vigor of I which it is capable. Yes, this Democratic machine jour nalism, or part of it, whoops for silver and financial reform but there is enough of it for gold to allow it to be said that the Democratic party has al ways stood for gold, in case the gold bugs capture Jhe party again, which tbey are almost certain to do. If the Democratic papers are for fi nancial reform, why do tbey publish with such a flare of trumpets and gigle some glee every prediction and proph ecy of the downfall of Marion Butler. Has a man ever gone from North Caro lina who made a better reform record. The Democratic machine party is about the same as it was in 1896. There were campaigns in some states, in 1897 and the record made is like a fish factory struck by lightning. It looks tousled and smells bad. It is noticeable that a certain so called journal publisbed in Raleigh has omitted to "number" the latest "scandals" it has published for the be nefit of its "highly respectable and ex ceedingly modest clientele."

So it seems that, the President has placed himself in a position to be insulted by those whom he tried to serve. This is the lesson of the De Lome letter, and the President will be wise if be lays it to heart. But there is another feature con nected with this affair which is humil iating to Americana.
