This was pecu'iarly gratifying to me who', from my childhood,bad followed his his' tory, whether its event was in heroism to press North Cirolina close to the great heart of his vital manhood when her garments were wet with the blood of her dying and her face was blanched with the rellected ghastliness of her, dead; or whethor in sacrifice, coerced from the light of freedom, he paid the penalty of that love in the gloom of a prison, in the very capital city where now his devotion to North Carolina is no less conspicuous in the forum of a Senate than was tho love that intensified in the confines of a prison. I am aware that I am touching a point in his history, the mentiou of which he has never encouraged. I trust that he and his family will pardon my reference to his prison life a reference which possibly, within the bounds of strict propriety, I ought not to indulge. But since beginning this article my en thusiasm, caught from the annals of his history, has brought me to the painful scene when peace had been declared, when the living soldiers had returned to their homes, but when he, in the night time, alone with his family in the town of Statesville, was apptised that his residence was environed by a troop of horsemen, and when he, the next morning, was started on a journey to the prison in Washing ton City. Jefferson Davis, in a dungeon in Fort Monroe, bore the consequences of each of the Southern States, Zebn'o 1 Vance stooped low, and lifted from "the old man in chains'' the glory and honor of North Carolina, which by the alien had been wrought into a burden of re proach. Transferring the burden to his own shoulders as a father clinging to a daughter reproached by the stranger, but whose stainlessness he ever believes, he walked into the gloom of a prison, at testing in the relinquishment of his lib erty, an imperishable faith in the integ rity of North Carolina. North Carolina, has he ever been un true to you? Let him who holds the re cord of his unfaithfulness arise and speak. Tho craves or our soldier-dead are settling to the common level of the soil. The fields whereon were wrought the miracles of blood no longer billowing with tho smoke of battle, now bflneath harvest moons, in undulation3 of rest lessness for the reapers garnering f-cythe, are attesting the triumphs of toil and symbolizing tne pertec'ions or peace. I know that nature and bus bandry i:t t hu biding the havoc of war would" te-.ch me tho philosophy of seren ity a philosophy abjuring all bitterness, bidding mo to turn trom the contempla tion of a turbulent past to a speechless communion with tho God of Pine;. Bat sacrifice, unselfish and uncomplaining, fov my fvtuer, ray mother, my sister, my brother and myself is a memory that Go l would u t and the rule of gov ciuoient shall not cause to perish from my heart. And, a f ;w weeks ago, while sitting in the gallery of the Senato and witnessing and hearing Vance's effjrts lor tho poor, of whom there are so mauy in North Carolina, I thought of tho time when he loved the Union and desired no war, but how,when it came, he wrought for the poor women and children at home and sought to keep nakedness and star vation from the soldiers in' the field, and how to this end, he bought ships which he sent on perilous vovaeros, from our blockaded ports to distant lands to return laden with the necessaries of life for the poor at home and the disttessed soldiers in Vir BUNN AND MC'IVER. WINSTON-SALEM NEWS. ASHEVILLE NEWS. The Discussion at The University Be tween The Congressional Candidates. (Special Cor. State Chronicle.) Chapel Hill, N. C, Oct. 20, 1890. On Saturday, the candidates of Fourth district, for a seat in the 52d Congress methere. The county candidates, being present, were permitted to announce themselves before the discussion began. it was nearly three before they weie done, and the crowd were anxiously waiting "to hear Bunn and Mclver." It was Captain Bunn's time to open the discussion. His voice was not in good trim, as he was very hoarse. He began by stating that nothing but stern duty could induce him to speak. That duty was twofold : To render an account of his stewardship, and to tell the people wny they should maintain the Demo cratic party. His opponent had charged him "with having done nothing." How could he do anything ? How could the Representatives of the Democratic party do anything in the last session of Con gress? Every right du8 them as Representatives of the American people had been abused. Deliberation rest being allowed by the Speaker, they could only serve their constituents bv breaking a quorum. This they did, and for six days prevented the passage of the Conger bill. Had it been in his power, iu the same way, would he have prevented the passage of the McKinley bill, and to-day "you farmers would not be paying forty cents more for cotton ties than you did a month ago." Of course he did everything in his power to prevent the passage of the Force bill, but the Dictator and his party willed it to become a law, and ii was passed by the House of Representatives. The party that favored these measures had delegated Prof. Mclver to represent it before the people of the Fourth dis trict. He had not, however, confined himself to that party. He was pretend ing to represent the Alliance I When or where did the Alliance give him his ere dentials i was it done in Kaleigh, W on a negro nominated him, and anor seconded that nomination ? Did those negroes and revenue officers represent the Alliance ? Did you, members of the Alliance, send them ? Prof. Mclver had been asked if Mr btrowd. his county-man, (ana orotner in the Alliance,) should be nominated by the Durham convention, and Dr. Gris- som by the Republicans, who would he support. His reply was: ' Oh; I'd have to siick to my party. ' i et he a-ks them to supocrt him regardless of party. Oapt. Bnnn denied that Prof. Mclver, or tuv other Republican could represent tho Alliance, for one is wedded to pro tection, the other is demanding tariff reform. Tho Democratic is the reform party, and to it tho Alliance must look for ai i and relief. Cap". Bunn spoke an hour, and was fodowed by Prof. Mclver. He camti ai the representative of the Republican party, and the Alliance or farmers movement." This movement was really a revolution, f.nd like all other revoiu'ions, had a deep seated cause. That cause was the corrupt leg islation which had been favored by men in both parties. The Alliance was after them. (Here he produced a copy ol last week's Progressive Farmer and showed the cartoon on the first page. ) He read some extracts from it. Among others the greetings of South Carolina, (the "hot-bed ' of secession, to bleeding Kansas, askinsr r3ace. and nromising the . . . . ... . i 1 7 O i - - ginia, and, how, attnat very moment, ne destruction of sectional prejudices.

Dr. Henderson a Negro Row. (Special Cor. of State Chronicle.) Winston, N. C Oct. 20. Saturday night John B rower's colored Lieutenant, R. H. W. Leak, editor of the Royal Knight, spoke here to a large audience of colored voters in the court house. This speech was calculated to counteract the ones made by Moore and Granderson An Increase of 460 Per Cent, in Popu lationPolitics in the West. (Special Cor. of State Chronicle.) Asheville, N. C, Oct. 19, 1890. I noticed in your letter from Winston Salem a few days since, a statement to the effect that the population of Winston Salem had increased more than that of any town in the State. Asheville is ever ready to give Winston Salem credit for ville justly claims the greatest increase, and the statistics of the two towns will show it. In 1880 the population of Asheville was 2,560. F.oni the census just taken by the ci'y authori ties, the population is eleven thousand nine hundred and twenty-five (11.925), giving an increase of 460 per cent. Winston's increase was 200 per cent. Asheville a'so has two suburbs West Asheville and Victoria if these were included the populati on would run up to 13,000. From these facts it is easily seen that Asheville's increase is the greater. here sometime ago, a full report of which her Push and .energy, but your corres- ttt o a ct- nT,r. . puuueuu ci i o iu sucu it statement. Asne- bet your proof roller that he by no means set everything straight for his boss. When he began speaking the same hissing was heard that Moore re ceived, showing the fact clearly that the audience was a divided one. Leak's speech was no such one as Granderson made, though some better than Moore's, judging by the wind that was wasted. He started out by an appeal to their batter natures and the same old songs of how the colored man was treated by the white man in slavery time3 was repeat ed. Then he branched off into every direction mostly in abuse of Moore, the colored man's candidate. Moore's whole effort was in exposing Brower's trickery, his bad treat ment of his colored consti tuency, but Leak evaded that subject and hardly touched upon Brower at all to uphold him. Moore did not abuse another republican save Brower, and in stead of Leak's trying to uphold him and his deeds in Congress, he kept whipping the devil around the stump by eulogizing all the dead republicans and what they did. His speech was no reply to Moore and Granderson's and no one would have ever imagined that it was unless it had been told him. Of course the Brower negroes cheered him, but still after the great effort of this lyiug preacher (for he told some whoppers) the colored voters went away yelling a they did before, some for Brow er and some for Moore. Oar people are very much put out bout not getting a speech from Vance this year. He is sent all around us, but we are not favored by the committee. It seems that they should know by thh time that Forsyth is tho most' doubtful county in the State, and that the records show that every campaigu that. Senator Vanco has spoken here, the Democrats won the majority of county officers. He would receive oae grand ovation such as Winston certainly can give, and I write this at the instigation of several good Democrats, who seo the situation. tor to return him to the Senate, perhaps that man did not love his wife and child as God intended that we should love the wives of our bosoms and the children of our loins. unday at the Catenary Methodist Church P-s'or Norman called fcr all those who desired to join to come for ward and take the vowt. of the churcn. Mr. L. L. Ilendren came forward ard was received. Mr. Hendren will be re membered by the thousand of minister. in North Carolina as having been ovc? an able presiding elder in the contei ence, but who was accused of violating a commandment ana wks expelled then- from. He has been leading an uprigot life ever since and has been genuinely converted. It will be a source of re jv x. a l . ni i. .. joicing to many tnrougnout tne oihu? to know the fact of his return to ioa. If the people of the State would work as hard as the Democrats of Buncombe and the remainder of the Ninth Dis trict, there would be no doubt about white supremacy and the abolition of Radicalism. The oldest men here say they have never seen such interest, and if "Tecumseh" Crawford is not elected there will be a great surprise. Craw ford is a second Zeb Vance on the stump. He has made Ewart so ashamed that he has tried in various ways to leave the canvass. They are out west now. In Swain county a few days ago they addressed the Indians. Chief Smith and almost all his tribe will vote the Democratic ticket. The entire In dian population of Swain voted for Ewart in 1888, but they are dissatisfied with the Republican administration of affairs at the reservation and will support Crawford. The Republicans in Mitchell county are becoming desperate. They can't arouse enthusiasm, so they issued a cir cular announcing tnat RichmondPearson 'would speak a number of times next week. Mr. Pearson deuies the state ment and says he wiil not fill the ap pointments; his position, as stated a few weeks ago is one of absolute political in dependence. The speech of Hon. R. B. Glenn, of Winston, to the Democrats of Asheville last week was one of the fi lest delivered in this part of the State during the cam paign. Mr. Glenn made numerous friends here. Every one was pleased. lion. U, A. tfudger is home again ifter canvassing eastern Carolina. He ivports good news and is much encour ag-'d. the departure of Rev. G C. Rankin, vho ruts b3en pastor of "ue Ceutral Methodist church here for the past three years was keenly felt by the entire city of Asheville. Dr. Rankin goes to Kan sas City, Mo. He is an abie, Christian man. The good he did here can never be told. He was loved by all. Too in praise of the GOING HOME TO VOTE. A Great Exodus of riprl I'm - avia ab v Various Departments to lhe Polls. By United Press. Washington, D. C, Oct. 20. There has been great political activity among . the department clerks here for the past twelve months, and the probability is that four or five thousand of them will go home to vote at the coming Novem- oer elections. A score or more Republi can State Associations have been organ ized and their members will probably go nomeen masse to vote. Never was great er activity and energy put forth in get ting every qualined Kepubhcan voter home for November elections, and the exodus promises to be something unu sual. Thousands of votes will b3 nolled in distant States that have not been cast before in years. So srreat does this exodus promise to be, that the rail roads have reduced the rates for one round trip to a half-fare rate to all points east of New York and west of Chicago, these rates being allowrd only to voters holding certificates of member ship in some State association. Mary- land oeing close to the national capital, will probably attract the greatest num ber of visitors of her native sons and voters on election day. Five hundred members of the Maryland State Asso ciation promise to eo home and vote. and probably as many more Maryland nepuoiicans, not memoers, will also go home. Th ; New York State Association promises to send 600, Pennsylvania 500, Ohio 300 Virginia 500 and other States proportionately as many.
