Carr FORMALLY ANNOUNCES HIS CANDIDACY FOR UNITED STATES SENATOR. Reasons Which Actuate Him in the Matter A Laudable Ambition and a Sincere Desire to Better Serve Ml State, Mis People and His Party in this Enlarzed Field of Official Posi tion. dan. Julian S. Carr, of Durhan. has issued the following card announcin"; his eandidacy tor the United States .Senate: To the Democratic Electors of North Carolina : At your last Convention you de clared through your delegates, in the platform adopted, in favor of a pri mary election on November Gth, 1900, i to decide your preference for Senator I of the United States, for the term be ginning March 4th, 1901. I favored this action then and I endorse it now. The primary will be held; our party is not afraid to trust the wisdom of the people. All the supporters of our eaiibe in the August election are in vited to participate in the primary. For many years the conviction has come home to many of the best think ers of our country, that the election of United States Senators should be committed directly to the people the source of all political power. In the absence of the necessary and needed constitutional charge the pri mary affords the uearest possible ap proach to an election of Senators by the vote of the people. I hereby announce myself a candi date for United States Senator and ask your support in the primary. My re cord as a citizen and a Democrat is fairly well known to many of you. I ask for it no greater consideration than is justly accorded the records of those able and honorable gentlemen whose names have been mentioned for the high positiou. In this contest I shall not attempt in any way to detract from the merit of any competitor. We are all Democrats; we are all mem bers of the same great political house hold; we have fought side by side in groat battles; we have by united effort and undivided strength achieved its great triumphs. In the recent election the great uprising of the Anglo-Saxon manhood we achieved a notable victory fraught with far-reaching and im portant consequences; imposing upon you the entire responsibility and burden of State government, and as a part of this the imperative duty of providing adequate educational facili ties for the boys and girls of our State. You will meet these greater responsi bilities bravely and fearlessly and dis charge these duties patiently and wisely. We are no longer, as in the past, to be kept busy with the care of preserving our homes safe, but will reach out to participate more freely in the policies of the nation. We shall now strive on the higher plane of ef fort and statesmanship. My political principles are those of the Democratic party; they find ex cellent and thorough expression in the National and State platforms; I need not summarize their declarations. To each of them and to both of them I yield most ready and unswerving support. They are the voice of my party speaking in its appointed chan nels" I obey that voice, and if your choice shall fall on me I shall in every way endeavor to have those declara tions become the law of the land by appropriate statutes. The industrial and educational progress of North Carolina will com mand my earnest atteution and zeal ous service. Its large agricultural interests will receive my watchful care and I will ever strive to foster and protect the same from hostile legislations. I have endeavored as best I could to aid in the agricultural, industrial and educational develop ment and advancement of our State. I have endeav ored to aid the public and private schools as far as I could. I believe, with confidence, I can ac complish more in these directions in the enlarged field of high otlicial posi tion, and aided by my experience and knowledge attract greater attention to the resources and opportunities offered by my State. The general up building" of our Commonwealth will command at all times my earnest and loyal endeavor.. I shall strive to pro tect our people from the dangers and disasters of force bills and preserve from Federal interference our new Constitutional Amendment, the sub mission and adoption of which by such an overwhelming majority adds new glory to the "Old North State." The earnest solicitations of my old comrades in arms have influenced me no little in deciding to submit my name for your suffrages. The old Confederate veterans realize that the young men of a new generation will soon have entire charge of the Old Ship of State. A few years more and the last one of them with a halo of precious memories around him, will have fought his last light and departed from the scene of action. But while he yet lives and lingers in sweet memories of the glorious past, he will feel a brighter satisfaction to be again represented in our highest council by one of the "Boys that wore the Gray." Fellow Democrats : My services have been yours in every campaign since I became of age; services gladly given, without desire for or expecta tion of reward, save only the gratifi cation of deep and abiding love for my State, my people, my party and its glorious principles. My only am bition is to serve better my native State, to aid more in its agricultural and industrial upbuilding and its educational advancement; to promote the welfare and happiness of its peo ple; and should you choose me to serve you in the Senate of the United States my loyalty and devotion to my State in the past, in war and peace, can give you assurances that you shall have the same measure of both in the future. Yours, vcrv truly, J. S. CARR. SEES HANDWRITING ON THE WALL George White, the Negro Congress man, Will Not Stand for Re-elec tion. George H. White, the negro Con gressman, was in Washington last week and talked about the political situation in North Carolina and the future of the negro in the South. He said he had decided not to be a can didate for re-election, and that he would leave North Carolina and go to some Northern city, probably New York, and resume the practice of law. "I cannot live in North Carolina and be a man and be treated as a man," he said. "I am afraid it will be a long time before there is a colored man in congress, and I believe the conditions of the South will eventually cause many of our people to go to Cuba, Porto Rico, Hawaii or the Philippines. There are too many negroes in the South that is the trouble." "What can the colored people ac complish politically?" White was asked. "I do net believe the black man has much relief in any political party. He must paddle his own canoe; he must think for himself and act for himself. Legislation will not help him. The white Republicans of North Carolina are Republicans in order to get the negro vote to maintain them in office, but they do not want negrces I to hold office." Mr. Simmons' Announcement. (Raleigh Post.) Elsewhere we give the announce ment of Hon. F. M. Simmons of his candidacy before the Democratic Sen atorial primary to be held on Novem ber Gth next, for the seat in the United States Senate now occupied by Mr. Butler. Of Mr. Simmons1 ability, his faith ful services to the party, his splendid achievements in its behalf as chair man of the State Executive Commit tee, we need only to point to the two terrific, but magnificently successful campaigns of 1898 and of this year which ended in August, as well as his excellent service in Congress, to at test. His natural gifts are of a very high order, and his fidelity has been established in every position in which he has been called to serve the people or the party. Of the highest sense of honor, be could not lend himself to anything that could sully the fair fame of his people or besmirch his own character. He is as sincere and honorable in private life as he has shown himself faithful and useful in his public service, Mr. Simmons leaves his interests in the contest in the hands of his friends, his own work being required as chairman in behalf of carrying the State for Bryan and Stevenson and the election of nine good congressmen. He Didn't Understand. "George!" she screamed. "My neck!" "What's the matter?" "There's a pillercatter " "A what?" "A tappekiller " "What in the world do you mean?" "O, dear!" she moaned, as she clutched him frantically. "A kitter paller! You know, George, a patter killer!" "Oh!" said George, with evident re lief, and he proceeded to brush the future butterfly away. Hon. Alfred Moore Waddell. (Raleigh News and Observer.) Elsewhere is printed a card from Hon. Alfred Moore Waddell, announc ing his candidacy for the United States Senate. At every crisis in the States's his tory since boyhood, Col. Waddell has been a leader in behalf of good gov ernment and a defender of Democratic principles. He is a splendid speci men of the Democracy of the Cape Fear a Democracy that has always stood on the tiring line. After the war, in which he was a brave soldier, when the corrupt Radical government was entrenched in the Cape Fear country, Alfred Moore Waddell was the first man to wrest victory from disaster by an aggressive campaign that ended the political career of Dockery. In 1898, when the resolute determination of the Democracy of Richmond and New Hanover counties gave the first earnest of the magnifi cent victory that followed. Col. Wad dell was conspicuous as a brave and undaunted leader. Col. Waddell is one of most bril liant men the State has produced. In Congress he made National reputation. In the campaign of 1888 he made the ablest speech on the tariff delivered in Raleigh in the life of this genera tion. He is well equipped for the great office to which he aspires. So far as the suffrage amendment is concerned, the conditions in Ala bama are considerably different from those in North Carolina. The pro portion of illiterate whites in Ala bama is so small in comparison with the total population that there is no need to make a discrimination in their favor in order to save the suffrage amendment from defeat. In North Carolina a very large proportion of the illiterate whites are Republicans, especially in the Western part of the State. But it does not follow that because they cannot read they have not a fair knowledge of the political issues that are presented to them on the stump or explained to them by the literate members of the family. Unjust as it is in its discrimination, the suffrage amendment in North Carolina is largely in favor of white Republicans. Philadelphia Record. Some of the Western papers are discussing the probability of the ex haustion, a hundred years or so hence, of the coal supply. If the ice supply holds out just now we won't fret about the absence of coal a hundred years hence. Newport News Herald. Bryan to Populists. SPEECH AT TOPEKA ACCEPTING NOMINA TION. He Justifies the Co-operation of the Parties to Obtain Practical Results and Again Proclaims Imperialism the Paramount Issue The Financial Question, Tariff and System of Tax ation also Considered in Passing. At Topeka, Kansas, Thursday, Mr. Bryan was notified of his nomination for the presidency by the Populist National convention held at Sioux Falls, S. D., some months ago. Sen ator Butler, chairman of the Populist committee, was not present. The speech of notification was made by Mr. Patterson, of Colorado, who was permanent chairman of the conven tion. Mr. Bryan accepted the nomi nation. Following are extracts from his speech of acceptance: "It is sometimes urged by partisan Populists that four years more of Re publican misrule would so aggravate economic conditions as to make re form easier. No one can afford to aid in making matters worse in the hope of being able to make them bet ter afterward, for in so doing he as sumes responsibilities which he may not be able to remedy. TO ATTAIN PRACTICAL RESULTS. "No Populist, however sanguine, believes it possible to elect a Populist President at this time, but the Popu list party may be able to determine whether a Democrat or a Republican will be elected. Mr. Chairman, the Populist convention, which your committee represents, thought it bet ter to share with the Democrats in the honor of securing some of the re forms desired by your party than to bear the odium of remaining neutral in this great crisis or of giving open or secret aid to the Republican party, which opposes all the reforms for which the Populists contend. "Those who labor to improve the conditions which surround their fellow-man are apt to become impatient; but they must remember that it takes time to work out great reforms. Let me illustrate by calling 3'our atten tion to the slow growth of public opinion in support of a proposition to which there has been practically no open opposition. GROWTH OF SENTIMENT ILLUSTRATED. "President Johnson, in 1868, rec ommended a Constitutional amend ment providing for the election of United States Senators by a direct vote of the people, but his recom mendation met with no response. About 12 years later General Weaver, then a member of Congress, tried to secure the passage of a resolution submitting such an amendment, but his efforts were futile. In 1892 the resolution recommended by President Johnson and urged by Congressman Weaver, finally passed the House of Representatives, but it has not yet reached a vote in the Senate, and now, after eight years more of pub lic discussion, the proposition for the first time received the endorsement of the National convention of one of the great parties. "If the fusion forces win a victory this fall we shall see this reform ac complished before the next Presiden tial election, and with its accomplish ment the people will find it easier to secure any remedial legislation which they may desire. But how halting has been the progress! Holland has said: Heaven is not gained by a single bound , We build the ladder by which we rise From the lowly earth to the vaulted skies. And we mount to its summit round by round "And so it is with great social and political movements. Great problems are solved slowly, but struggling humanity marches on, step by step, content if at each nightfall it can pitch its tent on a little higher ground. CO-OPEKATION IS JUSTIFIED. I have called attention to the issues which brought the Democrats and Populists together and which justified the co-operation during the last four years. Let me now invite your at tention to new questions which would justify co-operation at this time, even though we differed upon all economic questions. It is not our fault that these new questions have been thrust into the arena of politics; it is not our fault that the people have been called upon to consider questions of ever increasing magnitude. "In 1890 the tariff question was the principal subject oi discussion and the Democratic party contended that the masses were carrying a burden of unjust and unnecessary taxes. In 1892 the tariff question was still the principal issue between the Demo cratic and Republican parties, al though in the West and South the money question was assuming greater and greater proportions and the Pop ulists were contending that our monetary system was more responsi ble than the tariff laws for the de pression in agriculture and the dis tress existing among the wage-earners. In 1896 the whole question of taxation became of secondary im portance because of the increased boldness of those who opposed the gold and silver coinage of the Con stitution. "When the Republicans declared at St. Louis that the restoration of bimetallism in this country, although desirable, was impossible without the aid of leading commercial nations of the Old World, the Populists and Silver Republicans joined with the Democrats in asserting the right and duty of the American people to shape their financial system for themselves, regardless of the action of other na tions. THE PARAMOUNT ISSUE. "The failure of the Republican party to secure international bimetal lism and its open espousal of the gold standard still keep the money question in politics, but no economic question can compare in importance with a question which concerns the principles and structure of govern ment. Systems of taxation can be changed with less difficulty than financial systems, and financial sys tems can be altered with less danger and less disturbance to the country than the vital doctrines upon which free government rests. "In the early sixties, when we were engaged in" a contest which was to determine whether we should have one republic or two, questions of finance were lost sight of. Silver was at a premium over gold, and both gold and silver were at a premium over greenbacks and bank notes, but the people could not afford to divide over the money question in the pres ence of a greater issue. And so to day wo are engaged in a controversy which will determine whether we are to have a republic in which the gov ernment derives its just powers from the consent of the governed, or an empire in which brute force is the only recognized source of power. "In a government where the people rule every wrong can be righted and every evil remedied, but when once the doctrine of self-government is impaired and might is substituted for right there is no certainty that any question will be settled correctly. EFFECT OF A COLONIAL POLICV. "A colonial policy would so occupy the people with the consideration of the nation's foreign policy that do mestic questions would be neglected. 'Who will haul down the ilag?' or 'Stand by the President' would be the prompt response to every criti cism of the administration and cor ruption and special privilege would thrive under the cover of patriotism. "It is not strange that the Popu lists should oppose militarism affd imperialism, for both are antagonistic to the principles which Populists apply to other questions. Looking at questions from the standpoint of the producer of wealth lather than from the standpoint of the specula tor, the Populist recognizes in mili tarism a constant and increasing burden. The army worm which oc casionally destroys a field of wheat is not nearly so dangerous an enemy to the farmer as a large standing army, which invades every field of industry and exacts toll from every crop. "If 100,000 men are withdrawn from the ranks of the producers and placed as a burden on the backs of those who remaiu, it must mean longer hours, harder work and great er sacrifices for those who toil, and the farmer, while he pays more than his share of the expenses of the army, has no part in army contracts or in developing companies, and his sons are less likely to fill the life positions in the armv than the sons of those who, by reason of wealth or political prominence, exert influence at Wash ington. WHO GETS THE BENEFIT? "Soon after the Republican leaders began to suggest the propriety of a colonial policy the papers published an interview given out from San Francisco by a foreign counsel resid ing at Manila. He declared that the people of the United States owed it to themselves, to other nations and to the Filipinos to hold the Philippine Islands permanently. "At the conclusion of the inter view there appeared the very sitinifi cant statement that the gentleman was visiting the United States for the purpose of organizing a company for the development of the Philippine Islands. A few days later, on his way East, he gave out another inter view, in which he explained that the company which he intended to or ganise would establish banks at Manila and at other places through out the island and build electric light plants, water plants, street car lines, railroads, factories, etc. It seemed that the plan of his syndicate was to do all the developing and leave the rest of the American people nothing to do in the matter except to furnish an army sufficient to hold the Filipi nos in subjection while they were be ing developed. "At the present rate we will spend annually upon the army approxi mately half as much as we spend for education in the United States, and this immense sum is wrung from the taxpayers by systems of taxation which overburden the poor man and undertax the rich man. In the pres ence of such an issue as militarism it is impossible that any Populist should hesitate as to his duty. BLOW AT POPULAR GOVERNMENT. "But even the menace of militar ism is but part of the question of imperialism. The policy contem plated by the Republican party nulli ties every principle set forth in the Declaration of Independence, strikes a blow at popular government and robs the nation of its moral prestige. Already the more advanced support ers of the colonial idea point to the economy of a system of government which entrusts all power to an execu tive and does away with the neces sity for legislation." The Negro Problem Solved. (Statesville Landmark.) The State Federation of Colored Women in session at Detroit adopted a memorial to President McKinley, petitioning him to ask Congress to pav the widow of the late Postmaster Baker, of Lake City, S. C, $40,000 in lieu of the life of her husband, which was lost during a race riot in that country. The memorial also states: "We would like to ask for a law to be en acted to this effect, that should any State be found guiltv of mob law and lynching it be expelled from the Union. The blacks then could evac uate and all the negro-haters could have a State of their own, wherein they need not see a black face. Thus we solve the negro problem." It would be lather embarrassing to have to "expel" New York and Ohio from the Union at first pass. The Republican party wonld then be with out any candidates for President and Vice-President. Totten's Predictions. WILL THERE BE A GREAT CHINESE INVA SION OF AMERICA? The Man Whose Researches Along the Lines of Chronology Attracted Attention Some Years Ago Recalled by Present Trouble in China Be lieves all Things Tend Toward Car rying Out Prophecies of the Bible. (Wilmington Messenger.) Many of the readers of the Mes senger will recall the name of Lieuten ant C. A. L. Totten, formerly of the United States army, Some years ago his books on the "Lost Tribes" and other historic events attracted no lit tle attention. He is again prominent by reason of a dream he had in 1872, and which was made public in 1880. It will be recalled that he was in 1892, detailed to Yale University as profes sor of military science. He is a bright man with considerable ability. The New York Suti says his "Bibli cal researches along the lines of chro nology have led him to study the political future of the nations. He views the trouble in China with in tense anxiety. Mr. Totten believes that all things tend toward the car rying out of the prophecies of the Bible." The account given in the dream would fill a column and a half of the Messenger. He is said to be watching the unrolling of the events in China with uncommon interest. His dream represented that a great horde would attack her, but she would come out supreme. Secretary of War Ramsey published the dream" in 1880. It seems that it was not China invaded, but China invading that filled the terrific dream. The Chinese in endless force was in Amarica. In his book it was said : "Their onward movement was like that of a vast machine, a perfect hor ror of tactical precision and blind obedience. The vast army seemed to be actuated by the same impulse which sends an army of ants onward in spite of fire and water and smoth ers all opposition with the very bodies of 'forlorn hopes,' 'sacred bands' that leads the rest." The description of the fierce battle that followed is most graphic, most awful. The Sun's account is this: "In this dream the prophetic part is hardly to be put upon that which relates to a "Battle of Dorking" with the much-abused Mongolian, but who shall say it may not faintly grasp some of the tactical possibilities of that awful warfare of the future, whose deadly arms inexhaustible sup plies, and relentless control of elec tricity and the higher explosive, and whose utilization of all the infernal mechanism of human military inge nuity shall tend towards a battle like to that of Armageddon." Time will show and before many years passes, what will be the final output of the Chinese murderous cam paign whether it will remain or be come a great power among the powers or be overrun and despoiled and final ly dismembered. Mr. Totten in his interview with the Sun, gives a very vivid describtion of the great changes made in war-like instruments of de struction. We copy a paragraph or so: "While heavy artillery is straining every power of nature to fabricate enormous guns, engineering is taxed at all her skill and genius upon the counter-questions of more permanent defence. New explosives are harnessed to new machines, and the most recent offspring of the terrible torpedo brood, shunning its appropriate ele ment, and essaying the very air itself, leaps forth upon its errand of destruc tion from the cannon's mouth! From the night-mare of experiment that these efforts are suggesting the very air seeks the relief of vacuum, and the ocean, unable to escape, quivers with anticipation as monster after monster, each more horrible in defor mity, and more instinct with infernal potence than its predecessor.launches with accelerating sequence into her troubled bosom. "Field artillery has witnessed the successive abstraction of solid shot, canister and shell from the astonished limbers, as each in turn has been pro nounced a hopeless efficiency; and now the very guns themselves, the single, muzzle and breach-loading cannon of the best pattern, are threat ened by machine guns, as but lately rifles and breach small arms threat ened and drove into the curiosity shops the good old 'Brown Bess' of our fathers, and as today the maga zine arm threatenes to displace them. Nor does the confusion end here, for infantry, still in doubtand excitement over this long-range controversy, and burdened down with an overload of ammunition, is now urged to add to its 'marching weight,' not a trowel matters are far more desperate but the pick and shovel, and to cling to them as to their rifles as to their lives! it almost seems as if where with to dig, if not their graves, then as least the very last trenches of hu man warfare." General John B. Gordon, chief of the Confederate veterans, and also of the Southern gushers, in reply to a resolution adopted by a large camp of ex-Confederates against any more blue and gray re-unions, says he, here after, as in the past, will be governed by his own convictions of duty. So were the members of the Confeder ate camp when they criticised his o-nshing, and so will they be when they elect Their next chief. Alexandria Gazette. You can't frighten the grand old hero and statesman with any such brow-beating as that. He is going to act according to his conviction of right, and all the threats of all the unreconstructed, unreasonable old sap-heads in the land can't move him or drive him an inch. Newport News Herald. If men s faults were written on j their foreheads they would never re move their hats. HON. A. M. WADDELL FOR SENATOR. He Declares Himself Candidate and Asks the Support of the People. Wilmington, N. C... August 29 The following card was issued today to Democratic voters of North Car olina : "I respectfully inform you that I am a candidate for the nomi nation to the United States Senate, which is to be made by the primaries on me btn 01 is o vein be r next and as such solicit vour votes. If either of the candidates for the position has served the Democratic party and the State of North Carolina longer and Detter and has done more to establish Withe Supremacy and is otherwise better fitted for the place than myself, I think he ought to be preferred to me. Whether that be the case or not is for the people to decide and I shall bow to their decision. "ALFRED MOORE WADDELL." Negro Labor In Cotton Mills a Failure. (Charleston (S. C) Dispatch.) The experiment of operating cotton mills with negro labor, which was begun in the Vesta mill here about a year ago, has not proved the success that the managers had expected. The negro operatives have been found unsteady and in many instances unreliable, and they cannot be de pended on to stick to their places. Mill people elsewhere who have been watching the experiment are doubt ful as to its ultimate success, as it was argued that Charleston was the best place in the South where the new order of things could be given a fair and satisfactory trial. Lack of constancy is the great fault found with the colored operatives. About a year ago, when the negroes were first employed, white men were engaged to train them to manipulate the delicate machinery, but this was pretty much kindergarten work. After learning how to handle the ma chinery and after they had been work ing perhaps for weeks, the negroes would quietly walk away at night and not return to work iii the morn ing. STILL HOUNDINQ HOBSON. Victim of Petty Spite and Jealousy of Fellow Officers. The Danville Bee thinks that Lieu tenant Richmond Pearson Hobson has no other hero possibilities in him; and gives as its reason that besides the alleged osculatory episodes that marked his journey across the conti nent he has recently been guilty of a subterfuge in seeking active service in China. This charge is based on the fact that he was invalided to Yoko hama to have his eyes treated, and while there volunteered for service in China. The Bee adds: "It is now the current belief that there was little or nothing the matter with Uobson's eyes, and that this was a scheme to get himself before the public "again, and his brother officers, with whom, for some reason or other, he is extremely unpopular, are Haying that his eyes were good enough for hero work, but not good enough -for routine dnty. We fear that Mr. Hobson will never be able to live down this last ridiculous episode, even if he could have survived the fatal results of his celebrated traim continental kissing debauch." The current belief with whom? Doubtless with his brother officers, with whom, as our contemporary says, he is unpopular. Our contem porary seems to forget that Admiral Schley is also very unpopular with bis brother officers, who have not hesitated to charge Lim with coward ice, by inference. If Hobson had escaped the petty jealousy that sought to victimize Schley, it would have been strange indeed. Ever since Hobson was ordered to the East he has been pursued by the enmity of these same magnanimous "brother officers," if reports are.to be credited. It is asserted that a cabal was formed by them to cut him when he went to Hong Kong, and to gen erally make things unpleasant for him. The foreign officers, however, prompt ly informed him of it on his arrival, and made a good deal of a lion of him during his stay. The generous asser tion that he has been guilty of seek ing another opportunity to see service by unfair means doubtless emanates from the same coterie. It is, we be lieve, customary to invalid men on the recommendation of a surgeon, and the story is, therefore, clumsy as well as vicious. Why not leave the yellow journals, which began the attac k on Hobson by distortion and miprepresentation, to keep up the campaign? Norfolk Ft'r-ginian-Pilot. Who Raised the Negro Issue? (Wadetboro Mewtenger.) There are two reasons why North Carolina'd new crop of McKinlejitea and Hannaites don't want anything said about the nero in politics. The first is that, having made up their minds to join the Republican party. because they believe its policy of Elacing the dollar above the man'will e to their financial advantage, they want still to be considered respect able. The second is that, at heart. thev are ashamed of themselves for deserting, for gain, the partv that saved them and theirs irora tne nor rors that most assuredly would have followed negro domination in the South. It is not strange that these men should dislike to be reminded of the fact that the partv they propose to align themselves with is as much the party of the negro now as it was in the past. Neither is it a cause for wonder that they object to having oat the fact that the National Republics n party is even now threatening to car tail the representation of the Sooth in Congress and the electoral college be cause it has been compelled to dis franchise a portion of the negro vote. The Republicans and assistant Repub licans have raisea tne negro issue themselves, to far as National poli tics is concerned, and. they may rest assured that it will be met.
