WATSON niS A FINE DAY. HE PELTS GUTHRIE AN GUfHRIE '0.1E-3BAGK A Larae Crowd of Voters Hear the Speech -Mo v(.nirn ai-d ( h ldrea in the Audieii.-eCieyeLnd iu GjtdSi.ap, Charlotte Obs rver. Shelby, Sept. 5. This certainly was a grand day for the Democracy of North Carolina,. Watson scored a great hit to ony".. ll? Etruck like lightning in all directions. He spoke to a crowd of at least twelve hundred. The crowd, too,, it w as a peculiar crowd. It was free from the smiling faces of beauti ful women. It was free from the faces of jolly boys. No children were to be seen except a small handful of boys up In the court house windows above the crowd. The air was cool and pleasant. The speakers were well matched. Wat son seemed a little better In mood, looks and feeling than usual. Guthrie was the same smiling major that he was yesterday and the day before. But both had cause to feel good. Never before have they been greeted by a larger crowd of actual voters than they were to-day. Every face was a voting race. Every face was a serious face. Every man -came to hear both sides, sides. Every man did hear both sides. On the north side of the court house a rude stand of boxes was made to hold the speakers. No one else was hon ored with a prominent seat. The crowd made a solid block about 1,200 strong. Early this morning the streets began to fill and crowds began to talk. The day looked rainy at first, but it soon be came clear till after the speaking, when a heavy shower fell. Maj. Guthrie was introduced to the audience as one of the first men to have moral courage enough to declare him self a Populist. GUTHRIE'S SPEECH. . The major said: "Fellow-citizens, I thank the gentleman for his kind in troduction. I congratulate myself for being before you to-day when patriotic men v?ant to carry our government back to the constitution. I came to talk patriotism. We live in a time when it behooves men to act accord ing to their patriotic convictions. There is a change In feeling now from several years ago. Men then were indifferent, but now they come and listen to the speeches throughout. The times de mand candor. It is the time' for plain words, from the platform and every where else. The time has come when a man stands before the people as a can didate to be winnowed, as the farmer does his wheat from the chaff. The time has come for the throwing aside of party lines. "I come here as a candidate of the People's party, standing square on the State and national platforms. This is a time when, men are thr wing off par ty ties and are standing for patriotism. My old party has left me and I will not follow it. Pour years ago the Peo ple's party platform was promulgated at Omaha." Here the speaker read part of the platform. He continued: "It is hard times that makes a man mean. Reduce a man to hunger and you have a dangerous man. I am not going to say harsh things about Indi viduals, but organizations. Oh! my honest Democratic friends, of the rank and file, I could go off in the woods with you and weep like a c-rockodile at the way you have been deceived. I voted for Mr. Cleveland in '92 because Harrison was for the force bill. In 1892 we were told that Mr. Cleveland would save the country. I voted for Harrison in 1888. Now, I am accused of being inconsistent. My opponent here will tell you that I am. He will tell you that a man should not right himself when he is wrong. I voted for Blaine, and I believe to-day had he been elect ed then we would never have gone through such times as we have. Blaine was honestly elected, too. For ten years I have called myself the political orphan, voting for whom I pleased, led on by my conscience." The speaker proceeded to read more of the platform. ' "The times commenced to grow hard. I felt it. The Farmers' Alliance arose like a little cloud in the west and put the people in the whole country to thinking." The speaker praised the Al liance for bringing about the present political conditions. He then said that both of the old parties stood for silver when Stanley Matthews Introduced his silver resolution in 1S78. He said: "I believe that John Sher man has done more to hurt the farm ers of the South than did his brother, with armed forces. My Republican friends, the constitution says that Con gress can coin money and regulate the value thereof, and also says that no State can coin money. What if some man had offered to put in the consti tution a clause saying that we must not coin money without international" agreement? He would have been thrown out by the pants and neck. ' I am glad to see the democrats wearing 16 to 1 badges. They are get tine nearer the Populists.. Now the Democrats hung up Sewall. Why not take him down and give- us Tom Wat- ? But let it alone. All-will worK out well. It is in the hands or tne com mittees. In due time tne iree snver men in this State will be ante to vote one electoral ticket. Mark Hanna will not carry off the skillet. "My Republican menus, you weie as dead as a dried herring two years ago. You can't expect the People's party to lay down their principles, iney are not gung to do it. xney are nui suins to endorse you gold-bugs wnere it win tell. The Populists will not vote for a Republican to send Pritchard, the lead ing gold candidate, to the United States Senate. If you can ruse wien tne re publicans for the best county govern ment, do it. II wiin me jwniuuiats, do it. . "You watch the Democrats, look what the Democratic platform says. It wants a pure ballot. Did you ever see that before? T want my friend to tell me why his party wants to agitate the election law ? Why, wo . haven t meet the present one yet. "Mv competitor will now make you a first-class Populist speech. But look at his record. In 1S93 he tried to Ra the Alliance in the Legislature." Then the speaker read the bill and tout now the Democratic Legislature tnea to kill the Farmers' Alliance, "xou may vote for him, if you wish. I don t be lieve you will. He poses as a triena to the countryman. But he voted against mileage to courts for jurors. He voted against the towns putting in tele phones. He offered an amenamene eo an usury bill to postpone the bill till the 10 per cent, tax was when oil ui the State banks. He wanted to amena a bill to tax the North ejaronna nuu- road till the lease of the road was out. Why did he want tnis postpone-! : Along this line 1 win say mat trie tease of the North Carolina uanroau eo toe Southern should be investigated. If I gt to be Governor of this State, 1 want you to investigate ana see u j. wrong. That is what should be done. "Gentlemen. I firmly believe that our government Is gone if William J. Bryan is not elected. It is the last time that the voters will have a chance to free This is a time for all men to think." Then the sneaker discussed national banks. He said that if a man tvrmid eo to a bank with the name of every man in his hearing on a paper he could not get the money. "411 cold men are standing together -M-.-oi!iv,r! and Sherman stand as one. all down." Here cnani-pr annealed to the negroes of the crowd, of whom there were a gooel many present. . Ttr- nnthrif here- took up his gold silver and trade dollar argument used him in all of his speeches, and dis- Accnd it in the usual way. "Now I will be followed by Mr. Wat son We agree on Bryan and we both aTee that Daniel L. Russell shall not he elected Governor of this State. Now between Mr. Watson and myself. If you want him, vote for him." , , niv finthrie was listened to closely. mv-l o Q lar-v of cheering. There seemed to be a lack of enthusiasm, but plenty of interest. WATSON TAKES THE STAND rot Onthrie left the stand Cyrus rt Wfltsnn climbed upon the stand and irtm to address the crowd. All was c;ilr,o and supreme attention. Mr, Watson said: "My friends and fellow Mat. Guthrie had the las speech yesterday at Rutherfordton and made a call for Russell. To-day he Do,ro tvmt T must call Russell into ?ort." Then Mr. Watson called "Oyez! Oyez! Daniel L. Russell, ex nfijrp of the Superior Court, and Rs candidate for Governo come j before this audience and participate In this debate as you have beentnvited to do this day or your default will be remem bered by the voters. Let the people h make the-record: 'Called and failed, judgment r-isi, rule returnable next No' vember 3rd." " (Laughter.) Ilecntinued: "I started out to do what I could for the election of Bryan. I would rather be defeated by 50,000 ma jority and see Bryan elected instead of McKinley. What is my election? What honor to me? What does it matter? Soon I will pass into the beyond and be forgotten. "You will pardon me to-day if it speak of myself, as my vote in 1893 has been called out. I was raised over here in the coun atnfrTm ?,nd there worked for my father till I shouldered a musket for the cause of my country. I was shot y country. I was shot and all but died. I went back to the farm after the war was over. I went back to the farm and took up my work. One day I tried to cradle wheat but my wounded shoulder broke anew. I tried clerking in a store but there broke my shoulder e ver again. Then I studied law. "I went to the Legislature in 1893. Now about the Farmers' Alliance amendment: I know nothing of a Far mers' Alliance bill to destroy the Al liance. I knew that the men who were making the Alliance bill ought to know what they were doing." Mr. Watson explained away all trouble about the Alliance bill. About the mileage bill, Mr. Watson said he voted against mileage for extra men as a venire. He did it to save taxes. He said It was too much to pay this per diem and mileage of a special venire as If it were a regular jury. Mr. Watson said he never rode on railroad passes and did not believe in them for public men. He said: "I voted for a railroad commission. Yes, I wetit further than you said I voted against a tax on the North Caro lina Railroad. I would do it again. I make no excuse for that. Three-fourths of it belongs to the State." The speaker made this point clear. He said: "About the recent lease I know nothing. He (Guthrie) says there is something wrong." Guthrie rose and said: "I know noth ing about it." Watson said: "It was done about you." Guthrie replied: "I am not responsi ble for all the meanness in my neigh borhood." , Watson continued: "While in the Legislature I was always at my post. I was elected from a Republican coun ty, and could be elected again. There is not a man here that would say that I would trample on any man's rights in North Carolina. " The speaker now plunged head-foremost on to the fusion of Republicans and Populists. He said: "If the gov ernment of this State is to be run by an organization, let one run it. Don't have two. There never has, before the last election, been a bill put on record without passing the houses of the Leg islature." Here the speaker turned and asked Guthrie if he was for electo ral fusion. Guthrie said: "Yes." Wat son said: "He would not say that yes terday. Now write your committee and tell -them that and name your men. If you had said so some time ago, to day a Democrat and a Populist would have been campaigning the State to gether in behalf of Bryan." At this juncture some drunken Popu list in the crowd cried for Bryan and Tom Watson. This fellow got so noisy he had to be taken away. Mr. Watson went on: "Mr. Guthrie tells you not to vote for anybody that will vote for Pritchard for the Senate, because he is for gold. That is against their principles. But he tells you to canoodle and jennydiddle with the Re publicans and divide the silver vote and vote for a Republican just for a little office. Look at this now, and see how does it look. "Now the same convention that nom inated this man (Guthrie) for Governor, nominated Col. Dockery for Lieutenant Governor, a man who was just re cently cheated out of his nomination by a member of his own party. He was, he said, for free silver; a man who ranted and kicked the rails off of the fence the other day at Wadesboro. Can you Populists afford to be led into the enemy's camp this way? "You did not help get up this ticket. It was gotten up by men who want to be elected to office. My Populist friends, you cannot afford to do it. My Republican friends, you cannot afford to do it. Russell has kicked you in the face. The Democratic party is founded on principles. You cannot tear it down. You must go upon principle. "You hear Mr. Guthrie say that the Republicans will use dishonest means to elect McKinley; you hear Dockery say that he was beaten out of the nom ination for Governor in his party by one of the same party, and now you ask for an honest ballot and are asked to vote with these Republicans." The speaker then read from the Cau casian where Butler had said that the Populists were compelled to combine with anybody that would turn their backs on the gold standard. He said that the Chicago platform was such that both Populists and Democrats could march on It together, and now we hear them ask you to combine with the enemy. The speaker said: "He (Guthrie) said party lines are not drawn. But they are. The Republi cans are now boasting that theycan beat us both." Then the speaker got on to the fu sion Legislature of two years ago and scored it mercilessly. He said that it was reported . that Russell lined his pocket at that Legislature. Then he roasted Guthrie for changing parties so often. "You are an old hog back Democrat; I am a Jeffersonian Democrat." GUTHRIE'S REPLY. Time was called on Sergeant Watson, and Guthrie came -forward again and said: "Let us hear the whole truth. Mv friend deprecates the idea of the Populists and the Republicans getting together. What does he say about the gold Democrats at Greensboro voting for him?" Mr. Watson arose and said: A friend of mine came to me and asked what my wishes were about the endorsement. I told him not to allow them to do it." Guthrie continued: "1 charge him with being the nominee of the. gold-bugs as well as silver dem ocrats. " "About Col. Dockery: He is only a free silver Republican in this cam paign." Guthrie tries to roast Watson anout the amendment to tax the North Caro lina Railroad, but instead Watson rnasts him bv telling him that he (Wat son') was the man that, in isz, carried the case of Blgelow vs. the Commission ers nf Forsvth to the United states Supreme Court and got the one-fourth nrivate Interest in the North Carolina private Interest in tne xvonn uaronna Railroad made taxable. .Guthrie looked sore after the roast Guthrie got after him for not want ng to tax the railroad and then voting tn tax everv dog in the State.
