LOCAL OPTION IN HOKCANTON, In the Spring of 1873 every voter within two miles of Morgautoa had an opportuni ty to voto upon the question, whether the sale of intoxicating beverages should be prohibited in smaller quantity than un broken package of not less than three gal lons. Every vote cast was in favor of prohibiting the sale, and since that time it has been unlawful to sell within two miles of the court house in Morgautou. There had been, up to the term of Burke court .just expired, for some months, a great deal of drinking in the town and the best citizens complained that some of the drug stores were selling liquors as a busi ness.and demoralizing especially the young men of the place. The Mayor of the town. Mk. Robertson, is not a believer in the efficacy of local prohibition laws nor iu the principle of enforcing temperance in that way. Mr. Kk uard Williams, one of the Town Commissioners, at the request and with the approval of many good citizens, caused warrants to be issued against two drug gists for selling without license. The war rants were returned before the Mayor, who dismissed the warrants agiiust one of the druggists upon the ground that probable cause had not been shown. The same de fendant was afterwards convicted iu the Superior Court in four cases on a part only of the testimony heard by the Mayor. The warrants against the other druggist, C. S. KisosMoue, were dismissed or destroyed by the Mayor without examining a witness. fAt this juncture Mr. Williams and other citizens complained to Associate Justice Avery and called his attention to Chapter 3o"), Laws of lsS9. This act so amends the gambling statute, Code, Sec. 1000, as to make it the duty of Mayors of towns, Inteudauts and Magistrates of Police, Judges of SuporfoTor Supreme Courts, when they have reasonable ground to be lieve that "there are places where in toxicating liquors are unlawfully sold," to issue summons or capias for such persons as are believed to know of such violations if law and to be unwilling to testify. The Tdeuce taken in this way the statute makes "information," upon which a Jus tice of the Peace or a Jud.e of Superior Court might i.-sue warrant or a Solicitor can send a bill of indictment. mc of the warrants issued by the Mayor was removed and tried by a Justice of the Peace, who di.-missed the warrant and taxed Com missioner Williams with the costs. Jcim.e Aveuy issued S immons for about thirtv witnesses from wh .-e testimony it appiared that two drugi.-ts had been sell- lug wit;i and withoiit prescription.-, ana to a number of boys between tittet u and twenty years of age. It farther appeared that parties tiought on prescriptions con taining no name of a patient prescribed for H!ij wheu thev did not pretend to be sick. The testimony taken by Jidoe Aveuy was handed to St.H I for. BraovEU. Five or six oilis were lis were sent acaiust eacu of the druggists, Kinos.moke and Peterson-. They were both convicted in more than one case of selling to a minor and of retailing con trary to law. KinosMore wa convicted on every bill sent against him. as was Pe terson. Peterson had submitted on two charges for selling contrary to law and judgment had been suspended on the ground that he would remove from the State, but he had opened his store iu Mor ganton again in May, since which time the sales were made for w hich he was convict ed at this term- JrnuE Phillips imposed fa tine of $100 and costs on Kinusmore in one ca.-e and ordered that judgment be suspended in the other cases. The judg ment in one case against Peterson was that he pay a fine of $500, and in another libit he be imprisoned for three months. The Judge, on motion of the Solicitor, had caused capias to issue on the bills, when found against these defendants. When the cases were called for trial coun sel for Peterson and Kinos.more moved for a continuance, on an affidavit, on the ground that the Judge had ordered the capias to issue without motion and on the ground that public opinion had been in lluenced, and the Judge had been preju diced by 1 he actiou and influence of Jlt,e Avery, who had taken the information. Subs, quently the defendants themselves and the counsel apologized to the court. f Ildoe Phillii's, at a later stage of the court, reduced the fine of Dr. Peterson to !?2o0 upon his pledge upon his honor, given iu open' court, that he would never udeal f u intoxicating liquors again. Ihe teSIimOIIV UtKeu 'jy 01 uor. .iTr.n.i oneTY- ed that one of the druggists sold to a minor without prescription even on the night after the Mayor dismissed the cases against him. Since the bills were found and espe cially since Judoe Phillips sentenced the defendants, Morganton has been dry. Before court the opponents of the local law said it could not be enforced. Now they say, that it is to the benefit of retailers and distillers, whose places are more than two mile3 from town. But men who pay a license tax are entitled to the profits of such business as against meu who take out Federal license and pay the State nothing. Some of the town boys, who are put to the inconvenience of sending a jug to the country, curse the Judge who presided and the Justice who investigated; but the good men of the town and the people of the country say well done. Friends of law and temperance rejoice iutheXriumph of the law. All argue that a man who procures a druggist's license and then buys retail license from the authorities of the United States ought not to be allowed to convert his store into a bar-room, when poor meu, who sell a drink out of a jug are first imprisoned by the United States and then by the State courts.

Atlantic Hotel,, Morehead City, N. C, July 1, '89. Wheu Governor Fowi.e stai ted to the Teachers' Assembly (where by the way he made one of his brightest and best speeches) he requested the editors of the lioldsboro Argus, Kinstou Free Press, and New Berne Journal to make it known to all the people along the line of the Atlantic L North Carolina railroad that he would be at Morehead City several days, and that he would be glad to have the people come down and give him their views upon the question of who they de sired to be President of the road. The in vitation was published and in response to the invitation the Governor was given the view's of the people in such manner as he could not fail to understand them. They accepted the invitation very much in the spirit iu which, according to the late Zacuariah Cuanller, the Southern peo ple returned to the Union after the war. He said that after the surrender ihe peo ple of the North gave a great feast and in vited the Prodigal Son (.the people of the South) to come and join with them in feasting and merry-making. And they came every mother's son of them. The fatted calf was killed and the- sat down to eat, and it wasn't long before the peo ple of the South said it was their calf any how and they had a right to most of it. After dining, came dancing and it wasn't long before a big " Rebel Brigadier," said Zach. was calling out the tigures and tak ing complete charge of the frolic iu fact running the government. The people iu this section came and they told the Governor that the road belonged to them an how, that they Lad the deep est interest iu it and its management and that they ought to have a right to "call out the figures" suggest the chief officer, or say who they did not want. Certainly they are right iu snying t hat their money did most to buiid it that they are the people most deeply interested in its man agement and that their opinions ought to have more weight with the Governor than the opinions of any other people. Those who could not come hi pel sou to see the Gov ernor, sent representatives, and ti-ey gave him strong teas ous w hy Mi;. Wamhno io.n Bur an ought not to be re-uppoii.t. d Pies ident of the road.. The Governor heaid their statements and their t-xpr ssior.s of preference. WNtd and discreetly he kept his own counsel and dfd not tell them what he intended to do. 1 had a ta'k a few nights ago -with a g- ntleman who compos ed one tf a delegation which went to wait 0:1 the Governor. He .-aid that after the delegation had staled its object the Gov- ernor asked them if they would not j credit him with honest intentions and give j !i:s appointee a cordial sup; o:t, even if he was not the man of their choice. They j told the Governor that they would credit I him with honest intentions, and that ! they would give a cordial support to any m;iu he would appoint except Ma Bryan that under no circumstances could they endorse the appoiument of a man so ob jectionable to them, or give him their co operation. This is the spirit that actuates 'j.j men out of every 100 l twceu Goldsboro and Morehead City. They say that while they may have preferences for the position that they are united iu their determina tion not to support even by silence the ap point ment of Mr. Bryan. This sentiment permeates all classes and conditions of people. The farmers, the mechanics, the lawyers, the business men iu a word nearly everybody who is not under some irlii ; atiox to Mr. Bryan demand his re moval. The Count Commissioneis of Le noir county, speaking as stockholders of the road, passed a resolution asking the removal of Mr. Bryan. Following this the Commissioneis in other counties pass ed similar resolutions. Most of the busi ness men in the entire territory oppose his retention. But the opposition to him does not stop with the business meu. It finds its strongest lodgment among the farmers. As I came down on the train a few days ago I met prominent and leading farmers going down to Morehead to ask Governor Fowle to remove Mr. Bryan. They had resolutions which had been passed by the Farmers' Alliance of Jones county, of Ixj noir county, and of Craven county de manding another President, and urging the Governor to grant their petition. The Alliance of Jones, Craven, and Inoir rep resents hundreds I reckon I might say thousands of the wisest, best and truest citizens and Democrats in the State. They did more, I believe, to elect Governor Fowle than any other body of the same number of men in the State. I say this because it was in the Second District where these gentlemen reside that the Democrats made their greatest gains. These men, most of whom are iu the Alliance, did a service for Governor Fowle and the Dem ocratic party not surpassed if equalled by any mon in the State. It entitles their peti tion to the kindest and fairest considera tion. If what they ask is consistent with the best interest of the State and the good management of the road, they are entitled to receive it. I was very glad that they spoke so unmistakeably to the Governor, and that they presented their views so strongly. The farmers in these counties are more deeply and more directly inter ested in the management of the road than auy people in the State. They have unan imously passed resolutions asking the Governor to make a charjge and they have given good reasous for passing such reso lutions. 1 cannot believe that the Governor can ignore such a petition from such a body of men, especiilly when it is endorsed by nine-tenths of all the people who are most interested in the management of the road. If Mr Bryan is retained iu the face of the opposition of the people it must be conclusively shown that Mr. Bryan has more brains and more capacity for busi ness than auy other man from Goldsooro to Beaufort, including those two towns. If 1 cannot give the Governor the name of at least ."00 men iu the counties of Wayne, Lenoir. Jones, Craven, Carteret, aud Pamlico who are better qualified by wisdom, success in the management of their own affairs, and every other requi site for the position thau Mr. Washington Bryan, 1 will agree to advocate Mil. B's re-appointment. Uutil appointed Presi dent of the A. fc N. C. It. R nobody ever heard that Mr. Bryan was a phenomenal success. Nobody pretended that he was the smartest man in Eastern North Caro lina. He was represented as a very smart man to Governor Scales and I need not say that Governor Scales was deceived. The facts show how badly he was deceiv ed. In the light of weak management aud bad condition of the road I do not believe that even Gov. Scales would re-appoiut Mr. tKYAX. Certaiuly Governor Fowle will not continue aud endorse the only real mistake of Governor Scales' admin istration by continuing, against the wish es of nine-tenths ok the people, in josi sition a man who is not suited to be Presi dent of tne road. 1 look to see Governor Fowle formulate a policy of his own ami not adopt the pol icy of Gov. Scaifs. So far he has borne himself nobly a.s Governor and met the high expectations of most people. They want him not to fall into Gov. Scales" one great mistake, but to have a policy of his own, an appointee of his own, and to make the A. A: N. C. K. K. a factor for the development of a large section (and one of the best sections) iu North Carolina. He cannot do this by continuing Mn. Bry an. If Mr. Bryan should succeed, it would be the success of Governor Scales. If he should continue in office by Gover nor Fowle's re-appointment and continue a failure, it would be Governor Fowle's failure. Every Governor iu X. rth Caroli na, since the war, has named a new Pres ident of the road. If Governor Fov.t.e should name a new man iaud there are plenty better than the present offict : he would not t Hereby be casting auy r ib-c-tion upon Mr. Bryan. He wa uid merely be inaugurating and carrying out a j.a-y of his ev, u a policy that, as au Ftsteru man, would heip to develop bis section of the State, and intrench the E.X'c.oue ili stronger in the afftctions of this (.co pie, than whom no truer and better live 111 this grand old Commonweal: h.

The retiring President. Capt. S. B.Al exander, a wise man if there is one the State, delivered the following address: The third annual meeting of the North Carolina Farmers' State Alliance, marks an era of unity of action among the agri cuitural aud laboring classes that is phe nomenal, and 1 congratulate you in repre senting an order iu numbers aud intelli gence that has had no equal in our State. Less thau six months old, at dur first an nual meeting, it had eight county Allian ces aud 13'2 sub Alliances. At the second annual meeting it had fifty-two county Alliances aud 1,018 sub-Allianees, and to-day we have 8t coumy Alliances and l,si sub-Alliances with an approximate membership of 72 thousand members. " At the hist meeting of the National Alliance, a basis of uuion was agreed upon between the National Agricultural Wheel aud the Union. This, if ratified, will change the name of the national organization to "The Farmers' ami Laiiorers' UNio.t." It does not change our State name nor effect us in any way, as all the important features of the oiMtif ution of the National Farmers' Al retained in the proposed con stitution of "The Farmers' and LalMiiers' Union." I recommend its adoption as it adds very much to the strength of the National organization aud will enable it to accomplish work that it has been too" weak to do heretofore. I lielieve other farmers' aud laborers' organizations will join us at out next national meeting at St. Louis, and also a better understan ling will fie arrived at with other labor organ iz dh ns. These organizations were brought into existence by monopoly and as long as monopoly shapes our laws to rob the people the war must go on until monopoly is dethroned or the people crushed. Alliance Demands. The "demands" made at our last meet ing for certain legislation have not been granted, and I would lespectfnl! and earnestly it commend that you determine at this meeting, to either abandon making political demands or take such actiou as w ill ensure your demands being complied with. If you resolve on the latter course 1 suggest that hereafter all demands be submitted to the sub-Alliauccs for ratifi cation and wheu three fourths of the sub Alliances ratify a demand, have your President issue h proclamation setting it foitfi as the demand of the State Alliance li e discussion in the sub Alliances will inform the members as to the necessity arid propriety of the demands, and the members knowing that they made the de munds will see that they "are enforced and then "taffy" and "love" for the farmers and laborers will give way for measures of real benefit,. I would also suggest that yon .-n il no petitions after a demand has be.-n niede. Demands and petit ions are incompatible. If we are to beg let us do it iu the approved styie, and uot demand one m anient and beg the next. A llianee Charter. Wl'h the approval of your Executive Committee I had a charter prepared in corporating the State Alliance and each county and Sub Alliance (provided only those Alliances that should accept, it should be incorporated ). It is a liberal chain r mp.'. 1 commend il to your favora ble consideration. One very important s, etion of the charier was stricken out by the -senate, and I will firing it to your ar tention at another time. This actiou of the Senate and the contempt with which it treated your demands, anil petitions clearly shows that it was hostile to us. Wo had a few friends there and they deserve our thanks. Au inspt ction of the Semite journals will show you who were for Us aud w ho ag -inst us. Mute HuMiiess Agency. The State Business Agency has not proved the success we anticipated and 1 utVe oil to give this department every thing you can to make it what, it ought to be. It is the right arm of the Alliance, and if you do nothing else at this meeting but perfect this department you will de serve well of the Alliance. Its failure to do what is expected of it creates a desire for co operative stores. This is to be re gretud. for cooperative stores have no place in the plan of the Alliance. The Alliance was brought iuto existence to protect the agricultural and labeling clf.sses against monopoly not to make merchants -and its agency system i the ouly one 1 have ever seen that suits the present condition of the farmers and la borers of our country. Ixjt us keep it within its sphere and not form entangling alliances that will affect our credit and weaken our order. The Lecturer's Department. The strength of the Alliance consists in the individual intelligence of its member ship. This fact makes the Lecturer's de partment of more importance than any of the others. I recommend that you give the Lecturer more assistants and define their duties so they (the lecturer and as sistants) alone will be held responsible for their work. They should be made the au thorized agents of our National and State Organs and for such other Alliance litera ture as will benefit the order. If we can get our membership to read our paper, and other literature to keep them in formed of our progress, to better under stand our purposes, we will be able to ac complish whatever we undertake with out it we wiil fail, for no people can act together without understauding the ques tions that confront them and the meas ures d manded for their relief. An intel ligent membership is more to be desired than numbers, for open enemies are few iu comparison to those of the "advisory family," many of whom are equally as shrewd as their ancestor who "got in his work" on the mother of maukind in the Garden of Eden. The financial condition of the member ship has not improved since our last meet ing, nor can I see any hope of improve ment a.s long as trusts and combines fix the price on nearly everything we buy or sell. Whether crops are good or bad, they manage to leave the farmer iu alout the same condition; and thus the intelli gent and ambitious young mon of the country are being driven to the towns and cities. They see "the few" iu the cities controlling corporate p.over h wnnh they annually co.l ct millions of' doilais, 110 matter whether the seasons are good or bad., and lured by chance they l ike ihe risk. This making it easier jot a man 10 get rich 111 the city than in the cumtry has caused the downfall of tin- c.:l;,..i Hons tiiaf have precede.
