IKIES BAD CONDUCT PAY? The following is from the Char lotte Observer ot today: ,4In Lemley township, this county, Tuesday, Messrs. Dowd and Clarkson, candi dates for the Senate and House, re epectitely, were subjected, it is said to rude interruptions. Mr. Yinton, Monday night, and Mr. Clarke, last night, both canvassers for the Na tional Democratic ticket, were bud jected to the same class of treatment in Charlotte." This is a cad state ment, but true. When jou have an opponent the only fair and honor able way to fight him is face to lace Thai is the way to make an effec tive fight. No man can gain , any thing by going to another man's house and picking a quarrel with him. You at once throw yoursel liable to the law in so doing. So the laws of justice and equity teach about public speakings. If it is an nounced that a Democrat is to speak at toe court bouse no man is com- pelled to go there. He uses his own pleasure. A man who is not a Demo crat cannot expect to hear what he would like to hear if he goes. So with a preacher. If a man does not want to hear Sam Jones, Pearson or Schoolfield preach be is . not com pelled to go. But if he does go the laws Of honorable gentlemen forbid him to misconduct himself while there. So it is about political .speak iogs. You have no right to go if you oan not behave. Misbehaving at any. public gathering gives a blaok eye to the man that does it in - the eyts of all well-behaved people It not only does that but it defeats any cause that the misbehaving m party espouses, xnere is no good that com es from it. If you disagree with a man and it is his appoint ment, you should listen and say nothing. If you cannot do that stay at home. You not only hurt your self bu,t you hurt the cause. This is a free country, it is true, but the laws of courtesy forbid ill treatment to an opponent, when he has the floor. It serves to disgust conserva tive man. SATE THE STATE, IS THE CRY. The call nas come at last. W are now near on to the election. It is at our door and we "hear the cry the State is lost to the Democracy Can it be? The cry may be too late but God forbid such a result. Any man who has an unbiased mind, csn say that the control of the State by .Democrats is best for the people large. It is best for the negroes and all classes. It is best, even for me crowq that is so earnestly try iog to get possession of our govern menu The flight is to save the af- lairs.of State from the hands Russell and his followers. It is not the negroes that is to be feared, but the white men that go along with them. Democrats, rub your minds and recall the days of Republican rule In this State and work to keep it decent, clean and pure from suoh booty hunters. T - r From all sections of the State we read from our exchanges, the Popu lists are coming back to the Demo cratic party to vote for Bryan and Sewall. In our own county it is true. These . men are after the true and nnlimited coinage of silver and not ofSce. THOSE tVOUIJ-BE MAGISTRATES. ' Providence township may be tak en as a fair example of what KepuOr- icans would love to ao. xo iu good old township, where peace and plenty have, reigned for -years; where the the negro baa been treat ed as well as he woula aek; where good and honest people live, we see twe colored men running against two white men tor magistrates. Well, that will never do to say the least. The negroes may be all right and if elected, would, we know, be better judges of the law than , some of the white Popnhsts magistrates created by the Rep.-Pop. fusion Legislature of two years ago. But the time has not yet come when a township in this county that boasts of no white Populists and one white Republican, will have two negro magistrates. You will see on elec- o lion day that votes count. HARD ON WE BOYS. The Caucasian of last week say 'The Southern Democrat in power is the most arrogant, domineering, nnnreHHive tvrant on earth.

The Caucasian, you know, is Senator Butler's paper. He is rather tou?h on the Democrats. t He seems to think that a sugar-teat would do the old toothless party some good. But Senator Butler will find out some day soon that the Democrats are not all on their knees. We give him the cake for making a pathetic picture of the 'Democracy of this State... JUST ijkeVopuijsts. The StatesviliejLandmark says Dr. B. R. Lacv's speech in the court house Friday night was devot ed to the silver question. He did not mention State issues. The Populists, you know, are the only frenuioe silver people. A number of them were in the court house unti it was announced that Mr. Marshal Mott, a loudmouthed gold standard Republican, would speak - on the square. Thereupon these Poprlist disciples of financial reform, the only genuine silver men, nearly broke their nicks in their haste to get out of the court house and hear Marshall. That is just like a crowd of Pop ulists. They are after the spoils at home now. They are not. after what Bryan will bring them. Wanted borne boy or girl in every school in tnis and adjoining counties to send the ' school news weekly to the Democrat." Be sure and clip this out; write the Editor at once. You have no better friend than the Democrat when it comes to school. We will at any time be glad to furnish you any points on your debates or any thing else that is in our power. Let us bear from you. We are greatly pleased to see attending the schools in Charlotte many boys and girls from the coun try around. Unanotte nas good schools as far as she goes and they need the support of home people es peoially. It is a laot to be proud of to koow that the farmers about the town are able to send their children to the schools here. But it is sad fact to know that the schools in some of the townships are on the wane, It is reported that the cotton is all out, with the exception of a few late patches. We saw a field on wnicn cotton bad been to is year turned into wheat this week. Buy era may claim that cotton is not about all out here, but facts of the above nature make good proof. We heard a leading Populist o this county say that be would not support the electoral fusion ticket He will scratr-h the Democrats off and vote' for the five Populists mat win be tne case with many Populists and also true with many Democrats. rryan s chances are growing daily. The West is more in line to day than it was yesterday, and so with other sections.

If the two colored would-be- magistrates in Providence are elect ed, guess Wealthy Roving Henry will get a job. importing Voters most abroad.

This is the time to investigate and cast ante such wou.d-be-Iiorth Carolinians. We have enough troubles of our own without bringing more from other States.

Democratic Committee Unanimous in Re- ftFusing- to Give the Whole Electoral Vote to Watson as the Ultimatum Deman ded. Atlanta. Oct. 20. The Demo cratic ext-cutive committe of Geor (xia met here today for the purpose of taking action concerning the par ty primary , for the nomiuation of four associate justices of the supreme court to be el cted at a special eiea tion on Dec. lo, under the new con stilulonal amendment, and also for the purpose of considering the Popu list proposition published 'ast week regarding a fusion electoral ticket. A State convention to nominate four justices was called to meet in Atlan to on .Nov. 28,each couniy to choose its dt legates on JMov 14. In regard to the fueion with the Populisis, the committe refused to accept the. Populist alumalum, which demanded that the lull elec toral vote of the State be cst for Watson lor Vice President, but of fering to withdraw seven of the Populist electors, retaining six to run with seven to be named by Demcc-rats, This aotion was taken by the populist executive committee last night, their commuhication be ing lormally delivered to the Demo cratic committee today, lbe c m-. municatioo declares that au inieren tial contract exists as the result of the St. Louis convention, by which the Populists were to support Bry an in the event of the withdrawal o Mr. Sawall. It then proceeds to ex press the belief that it is the inten tion of the leaders of "the Demo cratic party to defeat and if possi to humiliate Mr. VVatson . and at tacks the Demt cratic. party of the State. It then makes the fiiHion pro position above outlines, qualifying it with the express understanding that tie lo electois so agreed upon shall cast their vote for Bryan and Watson, and concludes by resolving -'that our central committee is au thorized and empowered--to with draw if advisable our remaining elec tors or reinstate those that are now withdrawn, if the Democratic party does not accede to foregoing just and reasonable proposition with in ft.rA la tia ft.-. rW 1ata The communication was dated the fifteenth inst., the Populist ulti matum expiring today. The mat ter was fully considered by the De mocratic committee and it was the onauimous agreement that the Pop ulists were seeking to prevent a lu sion and that they would listen to no reasonable terms. though the consen sus of opionion among the members present was that if the Populists had not themselves locked the doors against fusion, the ommittee wou'd have cheerfully negotiated for a satisfactory settlement. The ulti matum of the Populists, ' however, refusing to consider Mr Sewall as a factor in ths contest, settled the ma tier and the following resolutions offered by Mr Clark Howell of the national committee, was unanimous ly adopted: Where as, the Populist State exe cuiive committee nas mad a propo sition which completely ignores fu sion by eliminating the candidacy of the Democratic nominee for vice president Mr. Sewall and has cut off tha Democratic committee from further consideration by fixing an arbitrary limit which expires today giving this committee no opportun ity lor consideration ot a movement of proper fusion, therefore, be it.

Last week be called attention to the fact that tbey did appear, but gave no reason whatever for the omi.-sioa or the pubii-.-atioa. There is a general feeling of satis faction on the par of most Demo crats as the breaking off of all far- tbur negotiations with the Populist committee. The latter never bad lbe least idea of permitting "fusion on the Sute or congressional ticket. J. . Fowler, the Populist. Republi can nominee for Congress in the third district, says that the Populists teared alt the fusion arrangements in counties with the Repub icans would be broken op if a deal with the Democrats were attempted.

Tbey know there was never auy real pur pose to carry it out and that many ropumts could under no amount o pressure be made to vote the Demo cratic ticket. The Democrats who have wasted their time running after the iropulist leaders are "rainbow uhaeera." Your correspondent, who knew many of the inside workings so termed them months ago. . it is said mat this campaign is more heated, that is so far as talk is concernea, man anyibing Bince the old days of Whigs and Demo crats. People who engage in politi cal discussions now d not argue they quarrel. Nobody w;II venture a prediction on tne result in tnis stale; that is a predition witb money back of it; otherwise a bet. So far but on bet has been made here. This is $200 that Bryan ca ries the State. It is even money. Chairman Manly in sists that Bryan will carry it by 30, 000.

The Can catian calls on the Populists to vote tor him, not because be it a Dera crat, but became, as it says, he is a Populist. In a secret circular Chairman Ayer tells the Populists that neither bevall nor Watson will be voted for as Vice President; tbat the na ionai Democratic and Populist commit tees have arranged that b tb Se wall and Watsuo hall be dropped and a new man ba voted for a compromise rain. Can this bettu ? So far your correspondent is unable to confirm it. It is a strange slalom ment to make. The State fair opened yesterday, with a very meritorious exhibit. The prospect for attendance is good, despite the political distractions and excitement. The railway commission to-day decided the matter of the reduction of raily way passenger fare J cent per mne. I he commission over a month ago issued an order making the re duction, but giving the railway peo pie two or three hearings on the question Of c urse all the railways antagonized it.

The complain s of the new elec tion law by Democrats are both numerous and loud. It is said it furnishes opportunities by the score for fraud, particularly in registra tion. Chairman Holton made the statement that there are 120,000 ne gro votes. This is 10,000 greater than any other estimate. On - the' heels of it comes the declaration by leading Democratic pacers that 8 000 to 10,000 negroes have been colonized and have fraudulently registered.
