Seeds of strife and discord were
sown in the ranks of the Kentucky
Democracy when William Ooebe
was nominated for trove rnor recent
ly, and a few days since a thousand
Damocrats who condemned the brow-
heating, bull-doging and corrupt
methods by whicft he secured the
nomination, met in Louisville, and
in a series or resolutions wnicn we
reproduce, vigorously denounced
tie (loebel convention and the ma
chine that controlled it.
William II. Sweeney, who was the
Hardin candidate for permanent
chairman of the regular convention
was present and declared in a speech,
which was enthusiastically received,
that former governor John Young
Brown would assent to enter the
race against Qoebel and fight him to
the last ditch.
The resolutioas adopted contain
the following:
'liEHOLvan, That the Democrats
of the Fifth Congressional district
condemn and repudiate the proceed
ings of the convention at Music Hall
on June 21st. We agree with the
Democrats of Montgomery, Clarke
and Warren counties, that said con
vention was diverted from its par
pose by tho nnscrupulos domination
of Win. Uoebei and by the arbitrary
and revolutionary conduct of perraa
nent chairman Redwine.
'KlHOl.vF.D, That in view of the
demand among the Democrats of
Kentucky for the holding of a State
Convention and for the nomination
of a Democratic State ticket to be
Toted for at the next November elec
tion, we request the Democrats of
all the counties to co-operate with
ns in holding a State Convention to
assemble Wednesday, August the
30:h, 1899'
Delegates were appointod to at
tend the meeting called for August
'Jd at Lexington, at which arrange
ments are to be made for a State
Convention. A resolution was adop
ted urging the Governor to call an
extra session, of the legislature at
once "for the purpose of repealing
tne Uoebei election law and thereby
preventing contemplated frauds and
probably blood-shed at the Novem
ber election.
It will be noticed that the resold
tions urge a Republican Governor to
call an extra session of the legisla
ture for the purpose of repealing the
infamous election law of that State
in order to prevent the contemplated
frauds at the ballot box.
The machine in Kentucky is, so
deeply intrenched and so firmly
holds the reins of power, that it wil
doubtless over-ride the best element
of the Democracy of that State, but
not, however, without vigorous pro
test and stern opposition from al
men who desire honesty and decen
cy in politics.
This same machine class in North
Carolina will follow the example of
their Kentucky brethren and count
the votes of the honest rank and file
of their party whenever opposition;
manifests itself to their dictation
. and domination.
Bat a day of reckoning will, as
sure as fate, come to those who ob
tain political power by fraud, intim
idation and corruption. '
" The Corporation Commissioners
could have assessed the railroad
property in North Carolina sixty-six
million dollars and the assessment
would not have been more than the
property of the companies is worth.
Instead of making the assessment at
that figure, the Commission took in
to consideration the claim that much
private property is put on the tax
lists at much less than its value, and
listed the property of all the railroads
at something like forty-two minion
dollars. That is under rather than
over the true value, and if the rail
roads had been willing to obey the
aws of North Carolina th y wonU
have paid the low aEssPinnt without
Bikini? to have tho rleral court
override the sovereignty of the
State.'' News and Observer July
I a the last issue of The Caucasian
attention was called to an editorial
that appeared in the News and Ob
server in February advocating an
increased tax valuation of railroad
property, and we also referred to the
fact that the News and Obherver had
surrendered its fight to increase this
valuation to sixty six millions.
And when the Corporation Com
mission increased tbe total valuation
of railroad nrooertv of every kind
omv ten MILLION dollars instead of
thirty millions, the News and Obser
ver in a way that is peculiarly char
acteristic of that paper, spoke words
of high praise for the Commission,
and said that they were carry inf out
the people's wishes in brave and
manly fashion.
It will be observed from tho lan
guage of the above editoral thht the
" CommiHsioners ce uld Lave assessed
the railroad property in North Caro
lina sixty-tix million dollars and the
assessment would not have been
worth more than the property of
tho companies is worth."
Well, if the foregoing statement
be true, (and we think so) that the
railroad property should have been
assessed sixty-six million dollars for
taxation, will the News and Obser
ver inform the people of the State
why it did not urge and rL-tad with
tho Commission to make the increase?
Fnthermore will the News and Ob
server also explain why it editorally
indorsed and praised the action of
the Corporation Commission when
they only increased this property
valuation ten millions?
If the Corporation Commission
could have assessed this property
sixty-six millions,'' as the News
and Observer now says, why didn't
that paper condemn the action of
the Commission in not making this
just and proper increase?
These are some questions that the
public would like to know, and we
trust that the News and Observer
will not dodge them, as usual.
if the railroad property is so far
under valued for taxation it would
seem that the News and Observer, if
it is honest and has any certain and
fixed convictions on the question,
would now urge the Commission to
rescind their recent action and place
this property on the tax books at a
figure corresponding with the assess
ment of private property.

The press dispatches of a few days
ago contained an account of the
mobbing of three Mormon Elders in
Georgia, and the report stated that
fifty masked men took these Mor
mons, who were preaching their re
ligious doctrine, and tbey have not
been heard of since. In a state where
lynching occurs with such shocking
frequency it is to be presumed that
these men met an awful fate at the
hands of this mob.
Now what wtere these.Mormons do
ing to deserve such a horrible fate?
Their only offence, it seems, was
that of advocating their religious
doctrines, and yet it so happened
that in the State of Georgia they
were made to suffer death for preach
ing and endeavoring to inculcate
their faith.
Verily, we have fallen on evil
times, indeed, when in this country,
which is supposed to be tbo most civ
ilized, progressive, and enlightened
of any nation on the globe, such an
infamous and damnable crime could
have been committed.
It is horrifying and sheckiue to
the moraf sensibilities to contem
plate the commission of such an act
in this age.
The frequency of such lawlessness
and violence is entirely in harmony
with the spirit that is inculcated by
some who profess to be and call
themselves good citizens.
Only within a few weeks Mr.
Woodard, of Duplin county, this
State, while in the town of Wash
ington, pursuing his private busi
ness, was taken by a party of men
and brutally flogged. He went to
his home, and the indignant citizens
there believed tLat the charges
against Woodard were false. Wood
ard returned to Washington and es
tablished his innocence, and the mob
Throughout some twenty years of
uninterrupted control in North Car
olina, the Democratic party never
realized the necessity of separate
cars for whites and blacks in railroad
travel. Last winter, however, in or
der to lend color to their campaign
of 181)3, they passed what is known
as the "Jim Crow ' car act, provid
in for separate cars for the races
Compliance with this law entails
some expense on the railroads, and
the act in consequence was not very
acceptable to them. Complaint hav
ing been made against the Southern
Railroad Company as to its failure
of proper compliance with the law, a
hearing was had before the Corpora
tion Commission? in tho courte of
which Mr. llesry W. Miller, Private
Secretary of Vice President An
drews, of the Southern, is reported
to have said: "I'd sooner have a ne
gro fitting by me than a great many
white people.''
In an editorial on July 27 th, eati-
tled "It is all a Matter ot Taste,?' the
News and Observer, moved with
very righteous indignation, adverts
to Mr. Miller's statement in the fol
lowing words
"The young man ought not to be
criticized becau-e he let leak the
Koutiments of his superior officers
While most people in North Caroli
na believe in separate cars for the
races, and the white people prefer
to ride in cars set apart for their
own race, it is not to be expected
that the railroad officials who sought
to make every employe of the South
ern Railway vote the negro tic Set in
181)0 should share that sentiment
The remark of ihe young offi 'ial tal
lies with the way the Southern offi
cials voted in 1896. Then they pre
lerred to vote with negroes than with
their white neighbors; now they'd
"sooner have a negro sitting by
them than a great many white peo
ple." At least they are consistent,
after using every effort to make the
State Republican, to stick to the
colored man aud brother and rej ice
that while white men condemn their
attempt to overthrow the separate
car law, they have the approval of
the negroes. But those North Caro
linians who stood for White Suprem
acy in 1890 when these railroad offi
cials were foisting negro magistrates
and negro postmasters on the State,
must be excused from preferring to
ride with "a negro than with many
white people."
The first idea that comes to us af
ter reading this extract is the posi
tive unkindnet s of the News and Ob
server. If it were true that the fail
ure of him and his party to "re
deem" the Statein '96 is attributable
to the fact that the Southern Rail
way opposed his redemption, it is
certain that whatever power he and
his party have in North Carolina to-
dxy is the gift of the Southern Rail
way. Base ingratitude it is to lift
up one's heel against the man who
bat; furnished one's bread. But grat
itude has never characterized the
News and Observer any mere than
courage of conviction or honesty of
The second idea that comes to ns
is. could the editor of the News and
Observer have supposed that Miller,

have a negro sitting by him than a

the people then take orders and cam
paign money from corporations as
some "reformers" did in 1898. With
this view of the matter, the ecitor of
the News and Observer is pardona
ble for his spurt of indignation, and
Mr. Miller should consider that even
the most pliant white slave may
squirm when publicly reflected upon.
But the further and more serious
thought that comes to us upon read
ing that portion of the editorial
above quoted, is the failure of the
editor of the News and Observer to
attempt to locate the influence of the
Southern Railway in 1898. Why
pass nnmentioned the year of his
victory? Because that corporation.
notwithstanding what he says of it
in 1896, controlled him and his par
ty in 1898, named Mr. Simmons as
Chairman of the Democratic .Com
mittee, selected the slogan of "white
supremacy," and furnished their
campaign fund, all for the purpose
of fixing the power of corporations
in North Carolina nnder the shadow
of the "nigger."

On the contrary, the kind of cm

and lawless, and the papers contain
frequent accounts as the above re
ported by the Journal.
Tho promise of good order, free
dom from violeneo or lawlessness of
character, was deliberately made by
the machine politicians of the State,
and notwithstanding the fact that
the machine was restored to power,
these dangerous and harrowing deeds
of violence grow apace.
When acts of lawlessness were
committed prior to their restoration
to power the machine and monopoly
Democrats would, with fiendish de
light, declare that it would not be so
if they were in control. They are in
power now as a result of the mob
rule and anarchy they practiced and
encouraged in the late campaign,
and yet absolute freedom from vio
lence and disorder and lawlessness
does not reign supreme..
Will some of the machine leaders
hasten to inform the public about
this important matter ?
Will they also inform ns why the

crimes, murders and lynchmgs ?

Mr. Henry Miller, Private Secre
tary of Col. A. B. Andrews, in a
statement made before Corporation
Commission with reference to the
manner in which the Jim Crow car-
law operates upon the comfort of
traveling whites and blacks had this
to say with reference to the negro.
"Now on our road," (the South

Inasmuch as the Jim Crow car-

would seem from this that extra care
for the comfort of the negro and as in
the case of the Southern, giving him
the "long end of the rope" was the

will meet the necessities of the case.
"If on the third Tuesday after the
organization of the legislature no
person has received such majority,
then on that day or any succeeding
day the person receiving a plurality
of the votes cast, a majority of all
the members elected to both Houses
being present and voting, shall be
declared elected.'
Recent history of wrangles of leg
islatures to elect Senators and in sev
eral eases legislatures failing entire
ly to elect has made it evident that
a change must be made in our pres
ent system of electing Senators. The
proper and democratic way would be
to give the power of election directlv
to the people. Until this is done.
legislation, such as the above would
mitigate the evil to some extent, but
the fight for election by the people
should not be given up till won.

have catarrh in the head, bronohitis,
indigestion and kidney disease, and
it is all catarrh.
When catarrh is understood it must
be plain that no local treatment can
reach it. Catarrh is systemic; it must
be plucked out by the roots. The sama
