In Cleveland, Ohio, the home of Mark Ilanna, there has recently been a big strike among the street car men, which resulted in some damage to property of the ear com panies. For instanoe, some friend. whose purpose it was probably to break down all sympathy the people may have had for tho strickers in their efforts to redress their griev- i t. a ences ami secure nigner wgi placed dynamite under one or two street cars, with disastrous results. The nse of dynamite eo enraged the people that a mass meeting was held by the business men and ten thousand dollars were subscribed to be used in apprehending the man who threw the bomb. This same meeting also passed resolutions in favor o! the establishment of an army post in Cleveland. It is very likely that the chief ground of those who so vehemently advocate a large standing army in this conntry is for the purpose of placing sok'iers in the large cities to suppress the labor element wherever they boconio disatUfied or protest against any unjust or brutal treat- . . 1 A I 1 1 - ship coupltd with govenment con- men lueJ J receive ai xue uauua trol is the only real corrective of of their employers.

There is no place in our country or the manwho settles bis grievances by the use dynamite, nor should there be any place or nse for the man who, like a demon, seeks to crush out of existences his fellow- man by depriving him of a just share of the fruits of his industry. During the latter part of Decern ber, 1S9 just before the legislature assembled, and when there was much speculation as to the sort of ditfran chining legislation the legislature would enact, the editor of the News and Otserver went to Washington to interview representatives of those Southern States wLich have a limi ted suffrage, upon the different plans of disfranchisement operative in these states-, and these interviews he had published in his paper for the information and guidance of the in coming. Legislators. Among the in ter views was one from Senator Mc Laurin, of Sjuth Carolina, in which Senator McLaurin, speaking of the South Carolina amendment and the primary plan of election in that state said: Oar elections are nearly all settled in the primary, and if a man desires to exercise any influence in govern mental affairs he mast go into this election and take his chances. These primary elections are protected by an Act of the Qeneral Assembly, , providing that they shall be conduc ted in accordance with the Constitu tion and rales of the Democratic par ty, and that illegal voting in them shall be punished. It is needless to say that a majori ty of the voters of North Carolina, would not for a moment, tolerate such a plan aa thii ; and if the Dem ocratic patty were to come before them with the plain and open propo sition that that organization be le galized to conduct all elections "ac cording to ita constitution and rales," that such a proposition would meet with signal failure Uutitis with this idea in view, suggested no doubt by the South Carolina plan, that the News and Observer in its issue of Saturday, under the caption "Legalized Pn mariea kill Boss Bale" editorially, advocates this plan. It says in part When the amendment eliminates the ignorant negro vote, a nomina tion by the Democratio party will be equivalent to an election. In order to make that condition permanent it is essential not only that every voter have an equal voice in the selection . of candidates, bat to make it impos sible for any party machinery to de ny him that equality of direction to which be is directed. The expe nence of the Democrats in those Southern States where the negro vote has been eliminated is that the dan ger of division and formidable inde pendent movements can only be aver ted by a primary Having all the safe guards of a legal election. North Carolina ought to profit by the expe rience of its sister States and provide a legalized primary at the next ses sion of the legislature. Which simply means that as iu South Carolina the Democratic party should be clothed by law with the power to throw around all of the vo ters of the State "all the safeguards of a legal election" and to be in po sition to avert "the danger of divis ion -and formidable independent movements." Here is simply another evidence of the injurious effect of the last cam paigu as shown in the loss of respect for the boasted love of toleration ' and spirit of fair play which has characterized the masses of North Carolina for such a inggestion would never have appeared in the eclomns of any paper North in Carolina prior to the last election, not even in the News and Observer, and it comes now only npon the pre sumption that manhood is no longer a characteristic of the voters of the State. WHAT DOES THIS SI KAN ? rv TRACT SHOW JVfHiK CLARK nrr.KCH bkiokk mk eeisvKN- TIUX OK KAILKOAD COMMI SIOXKK3 AT UEKVEK From the golden mile stone in the Roman Forum radiated those mag nificent roads whieh to this day tell how Rome built for the ages. Along them poured tb tide of the Repub lic's and the Empire's commerce; over them tramped her legions, and as the (icd Terminus successively re moved further and further the limits of her domains, these magnificent viaducts carried to the remotest ver ges the art, the literature, the laws, the civilization that was Roman. In deed biT roads made possible the vast extent of her dominion and bound together for so many centu ries so many countries iu that Ro man Peace which created and main tained the civilization and the learn ing withu r wnich humanity would not occupy the advanced stage that it does to day. Suppose for a moment that those Roman roads, the arteries of the em pire, had been owned by private companies of millionaries, that not a wheel could roll nor a man move along thrm, nor ten the legions ex cept cn terms dictated by the corpo rations; would not those corporations have had the empire by the throat Would they not have appointed con suls and pro consuls, every senator, every general and every jadge? They would have been the government It is a universal maxim tnat pn vate property can not be taken for private uses, but only for the public use. Yet no railroad can be built without the appropriation of private property. It results that the real question and we are race to race witn it is whether it is practicable to contro theso great forces, these immense ag gregatiens of c ipital, by Commissions and ov ttatutes, or shall it be neces sarv to take the absolute ownership of them over in tho government. In all tho countries of the world save Great Britian and the United S'ates. the answer has been that government ownership is indispen sable to a safe and just control Accordingly in almost all other coun tries, including even the Australian and other British colonies, the rail road?, or at least the controlling lines are owned by theii respective governments. In the United States and the contrated territory embraced in the British Isles, the experiment fo government control, without gov ernment ownership, is on trial. Oae of tho greatest evils of the present system is the proneness of these corporations to intervene in politics. Realizing that a govern ment by the people is only possible when the government is kept un touched by the power of great mon eyed combinations, there is nothing which arouses public indignation more than the almost unconcealed interference of these corporations in C0LONLZ&.TIOH OF THE NE GRO RACE.

ONLY 01 CURE- ' rest ttMFUUL From the Conoord Daily Standard of July'JCth, we clip the following the nomination and election of legisla editorial paragraph: When the county has a fair sprink ling of the suspicious white vote that will risk any injury to the country rather than abandon prf jadices so inimical to patriotism it is time that we eliminate as much of the danger ous vote as possible from whatever point we can. What does toe Standard mean when it speaks of the ''Sprinkling of the Suspicious White Vote," and fur ther on argues that "it is time to eliminate as much of the dangerous vote as possible from whatever point we can t" Does the Standard make bold the assertion that it is the purpose of the machine to "eliminate'' a large por tion of the "dangerous white vote of the State by the adoption of the Con stitutional amendment T Is it the purpose of the amendment to deprive a large element of the white population of the right to vote! It would seem from the bold utter ance of the Standard that it really desires the disfranchisement of that portion of the white vote that will not follow or submit to the dicta tion and domination of the machine. The machine should sumarily squelch the Standard, otherwise that paper might give away its secret plans and purposes. One of the most suggestive car toons we have seen for sometime appeared recently in the Washing ton Post. It represented McKinley as a Farmer on his way to mill (second term) with a sack of grain labelled "McKinley Popularity" on hisback, and in the sack were two holes through which the grain was rapidly spilling. One of the leaks was " Cuban Government"; the other "The Phillipine War" and so great was the leak that McKinley's popu larity sack was rapidly becoming empty. Every day of the horrors -of the Phillipine War and of America's stultification in still maintainiug military government in Cuba, de creases McKinleys chances of re election. It is needless to call the atten tion of our readers, to the commu nication of Capt. R. B. Davis, in another column. Never before. Der- haps, have there been collated so many and such highauthorities in support of a single proposition as of the one which he advocates, and tors, congressmen, Governors and United States Senators. Their con tributions to Fresidental campaign funds is a National scandal. Worse' than all is their influence in the appointments of the life judiciary of the Federal Governmeat and recent evidence given before the Industrial Commission shows that they are not above tampering with tne nomina tion and election of State judges chosen by tne people. - a a The crucial question for solution Is whether the interference of great corporations in politics and their secret discrimination in rates, where' by trusts are created and sustained can be suppressed without resort to government ownership. These evils must be eliminated. The hope of America lies in the very fact that our people will not submit to such abuses much longer. - In all the countries of the world I believe except this and Canada, the telegraph and the telephone are part of the post office system, legally as well as logically, for they are simply methods of communicating intelli gence. 1 nave always believed as a lawyer that under the provisions of the Federal Constitution which re xuires Congress to establish postoffi ces and postroads, it is its duty to transmit intelligence by wire as well as by rail, by electricity as well as by steam or pneumatic tubes, and as this power vested in Congress is held by the United States Supreme Court to be an exclusive power, that the oneration f telegraph and telephones for hire by others than the govern ment is as illegal as tneir running the postoffice would be. Great Brit ain wnicn alone nas stood witu us against government ownership of railroads, has had to leave us on this matter for there the telegraphs are a part of the postoffice department. This forgotten man the patrons of the railroads elects .no president. superintendent or board of directors but he has to bear whatever burdens they see fit to place upon him. He has no voice in fixing the salaries, many of them as high as or higher than that of the President, of the United States, but he pays te them the last cent. He rarely rides in a palace car or upon a free pass but he pays the fare of thesa who do. He has no hearing as to the tax which shall be levietl for the movement of himself, his produce or his purchases, but be pays it more surely than he does the taxes for the support of his ciry, State or Federal Government, for the Station Agent, like that oth r tax collector, the a TT AM -a tustom uoose omeer, extends no credit or delay, but requires cash in hand. - - - . Editor Caucasian. 1 In your last lssiu- I quoted. In support of the above proposition, the opinions of some of the sages of our revolutionary era, and most largely those of Thomas Jefferson for the reason, that he has had the singular good fortune to be recog nized as an authority by all parties Canonized, even before he wag dead, his name, since then, has stood al ways first in the popular hagiology. And so true Is this, that the found ers of every political party since bis time, has taken some distinctive doctrine of his. as the corner-stone of its political creed. Thus flenry Clay, treading in the footsteps of this apostle of hu man liberty, took up the cause of African Colonization where Jeffer son had left it, and pressed it with a zeal which was the more honor able in him since he consented, for its sake, to sacrifice the Presidency of the United States. Addressing the Colonization Society of Ken tucky in 182'J the Great Commoner had this to say If we were to invoke the greatest blessing, which Heaven could bestow upon this nation, it would be the sepa ration of the two races of its popula tion, and tbeir comfortable establish-. ment, in distinct and distant countries, if this is not done, who can contem plate the future without the most aw ful apprehensions ? For if tbia pro miscuous residence, of Whites and Blacks, is to continue forever, who, without shuddering with horror, can imagine the wars, and carnage, and crimes, that must be us probable consequences? And Abraham Lincoln following, as he professed always to do, the leadership of Clay upon this ques tion, in his first annual message of Dec. 6 1801, submitted the follow ing I recommend that Congress take steps to colonise all slaves, that shall be confiscated for having been used for insurrectionary purposes, in some place and c iraate congenial t tltm. It might be well to consider too, whether all free-born negroes could not be included in such colonization, so far as they may desire. To carry out the plan of colonization, may id volvethe acquisition of new territory, and also tne appropriation of money beyond that to be expended in territo rial acquisition. And if it should be said, that the only legitimate object of acquiring territory is to provide homes for white men, this measure effects that object, since the emigration of black men will leave additional room for white men remaining here, or com ing here. Andain his second annual mess age, of Dec. 1 lobz, when his Eman cipatlon Proclamation was suspen ded, and just one month before it was to go into effect, and while it was still open, to the acceptance of the people of the South, he said I can not make it better understood. than it is already, that I strongly favor the colonization of the negro race. With his Deportation, even to a limit ed extent, enhanced wages of Mie white laborer is mathematically certain. The price oi labor, like that of other com modities, is regulated by supply and demand.

In many eases where the wrong treatment has been relied upon, complicated glandular swellings have resulted, for which the doctors insist that a dangerous surgical operation is necessary. Mr. II. E. Thompson, of Milledgeville, Ga., writes: A bad case of Scrofula broke out on the gland cf my neck, which had to be lanced and caused me much suffering. 1 was treated for a long while, but the physician were un able to cure me, and my condition was as bad as when I began their treatment.

The All tho Trafltr Win Hear." Fruit Trade Journal. There are thousands of miles of railroad tbroughfout th country that could not pay expenses were it not for the products of the soil. There are hundreds of towns on water navigated by our steamers that could not contribute a good sized cargo in a month if fruit and produce were barred out.

And U. 8 Grant in the last chap ter of his Personal Memoirs dictated from bis deathbed at Mt.

It is possible that the question of a con met oetween races, may come dj in the future, as did that between freedom and slavery before. And it was looking to a settlement of this question that led me to urge the an nexation of feanto Domingo, during the time I was President of the Uni ted States.

Here, Mr. Editor, I finish these citations, that might be multiplied indefinitely. But in bringing them to a close, I ask if there has ever before been presented, in de fense of a proposition as clear and sound as this, an array of authori ties so strong and convincing as these In makicg choice of Frank lin, and Jefferson, and Clay, and Lincoln, and Grant, I have selected those only, who have been the re cognized moulders, of the thought and action, of every political par ty that has left an enduring im press upon the nation Federalist, Kepublican, Democratic, Whig, and Republican again, And I have giv en the preeminence to Jefferson, because his name . since the hour of his df ath, has been the rallying cry of them all. - The best exponents of the People's Party are accustomed to call them selves "Jeflersoman Democrats," and may be said to have adopted, at the iiirth of the party, his first Inaugural, as the party's creed.

Why not find Cut what will help the masses and what has a great moral underlying it, and then adopt that for principles' sake, whether success coiuess to it or not! Free silver, 16 to 1 and oppositions to trusts and combines and to declare for a better system of fiaan.'e will do it, if you can unite the voters who favor it. The other side will be united, and the man or set of men who tries to hope differently, will be as badly deceived as the man who hopes that some may be provided for him to get to heaven without re generation.

They recog nize the immense value of railroads. one too that seems to be awaking their indispensable assistance in the V bt tne first wiue-tspreau inquiry at present.

In his next number, he promises to have something to say of the attitude of the Democratic party of North Car olina, in respect to this question. Democrats Put la a Negro Policeman.

Whether they will have the cour age to do this, the sequelwill show. The modern Republicans, in like manner, profess to hold his mem ory in religious veneration. But if they have now lost faith in his guidance, are they not willing to trust to that of Lincoln, and of Grant? This question I address, in all seriousness, to the acknowledged leaders of that party in this State, whom I know to be men of reflec tion, and forethought.: And tley, with equal seriousness, might ad dress it to their negro following as fast as education shall enable them to conquer, . that Israelitish fond .ness for the Egyptian flesh-pots which conceals from them, their present and future condition.
