He was elected President on his
fighting record, lie was inaugura
ted on the 4th of Man. h and died on
the .th of April, and that was one
reason w hy his grandson sorter claim
ed the oltice so as to finish out his
grandfather's term. Put that is all
he ought to claim. When his term
is out we will retire him. The debt
will be paid. I believe him to be a
gentleman and a Christian, not be
cause he looks like me, but on gen
eral principles. His pedigree is
ooci. J le has been reporter ot th
Supreme Court and United States
Senator. lie entered the armv as
second lieutenant and fought his way
up to a brigadier general. He is no
"little man," but somehow- he don't
suit our people. Maybe he will like
ns better after he passes through the
South, and then we will like him bet
ter. That is characteristic of south
erners. They like those who like
them, and vice versa "Love your
enemies and bless them that curse
you" is a doctrine that strains their
religion, so they won't try it.
It is a big thing for a President to
go will all over this vast domain and
he courteously treated everywhere
no guard, no soldiers to protect him,
and vet no fears of assassins or rob
bers or insults. The Czar can't do
it. nor any King or Emperor in the
old world. If no sane man took a
crack at him, some crazy crank
would. Put here in the South even
the President's political enemies take
pleasure in doing him honor, and
Asa Dunn, the big, stalwart, rebel
lious conductor, swells up w itn im
portance as he marshals his beautiful
train and says, "Make way, make
way for the President of the United
States of North America, L. Pluribus
I 'num. Anno Domini, and so lorth
make way and clear the track, I
sav." Dick Hargis heralded (irov
er Cleveland over the same line and
it stretched him from six tect two
inches, to six feet, four inches, and
he wouldn't speak to Sanford lull
for a week, although Sanford was the
oldest conductor on the road.
Our j 'readier told us last Sunday
that when a man said hard things of
another through mistake, or without
just cause, lie ought to take it back
and make the amende honorable as
soon as possible, Then we have all
got a great deal to take back, politi
cally and otherwise. It is a good
time for us to begin now. Not long
ago I wrote disparingly ot Dutch
Fork, in South Carolina. Of course,
I had nothing against the Dutch or
the Fork, but was illustrating an an
ecdote, and I told the story as a
preacher told it t me. Put I have
received a letter from Dutch Fork
a good letter from a gentleman, and
he savs that it is all a mistake and
that a better people cannot be found,
and they live well and are prosperous
and he encloses th
fare that I will mid

My friend made a mistake or
misimderstood him. It was
other fork, or it was a Ion-
ago when Uncle Simon Peter was a
bey, and the people have changed
since lie left there. As the fellow
said about the mosquitoes, "they are
not vcrv bad here, but a litde lower
down you'll catch "em." And lately
I wrote about the relu.-e tobacco ot
Winston being shipped to Durham as
a Winston man told me, and it was
to be made into eigarettes tor the
boys, and was first ground up and
saturated w ith New Lngland mm. A
I hirham b '1 acci gentleman has taken
offense, and denies the allegation and
denies the aliegator. Well, ot course
I take back the spittoon part, but as
he does not deny the rum I will let
that stand. He knows he can't deny
that, and if he thinks there is no
scandal in manufacturing rum-soaked
cigarettes lor the bovs ot this coun
try to -.moke, his moral nature is
pretty well cauterized. The doctors
have unanimously pronounced it a
slow- poison, and almost invariably
leads to drunkenness. The law
makers have passed laws prohibiting
the sale to minors. The courts and
the police are d iim
suppress :t. The
their utmost to
teachers have become alarmed at the
prevalence of this vice among the
1 ovs, but the manulacturers do not
care as long as they make their mil
lions out of it. It reminds me ol my
trip through Tennessee the other day.
"where everybody seems to be so
rich?" "This is Robinson county,"
said my lriend, "where they make so
much w hiskey. Its manufacture has
made this country rich, but has made
thousanns and thousands of people

This ends the amende honorable
up to date. I have not heard from

interview- with Senator Vance, pub
lished in the Apva.nci: last week, he
says he is not instructed to support
the Sub-Treasury bill particularly.
That is our understanding. Some
of the papers in the State are trying
to question this. As soon us this
was seen Mr. W. S. Fames, State
Secretary, wrote to the State Chroni
cler as follow s :
I see there seems to be some mis
understanding among some ol th'
newspapers and politicians Oi n.e
State as to what was "contemplated
in the Ocala platform of financial
reform" and whether that platform
in any way touch.es the "Sub-Treasury
bill." For their information I
enclose the following clipping taken
from page 33 sixth days proceedings
of the Ocala Convention, during
consideration of the report of the
committee on Demands:
Whkkkas, There is now
known as the Sub-Treasury

Committee of the House of

Resolved, That this National

on this question.
Last week's Progressive Farmer
said, editorially, and this is our idea
Senator Vance told a reporter the
other day that he understood that he
h.wl been instructed by the North
egislature te support the
"plan 0! financial retorm contem-
plated In- the Ocala Lonvention, and
not any particular bill. 1 his is our
understanding of the matter also.
So far at we know, there has never
been anv d'spcisi'uo in the Alliance
to embarrass Senators and Repre
sentatives with particular bills. 1 lie
Alliance demands certain objects at
the hands of legislation, and it is
willing to leave men in Congress free
to embody those objects in such leg
islation as may be wisest."
I li re is the resolution of instruc
tion as passed bv the last Oencral
Assembly. So it seems that the sit
uation is perfectly clear and plain.
uid the Progressive Farmer exactly
That our Senators in the 51st
and s2il Congress of the United
States be and they are hereby in
structed and our Representatives are
requested to vote lor and use all
lonorable means to secure the ob
jects ot the hnanciai retorms contem
plated m the platform adopted by
the Ocala meeting of the Fanners'
Alliance, held December, kSoo."
Perhaps it will be of interest to
know just what the Ocala platform
does demand. Here are the de
1. We demand the abolition of
national banks ; w e demand that the
government shall establish Sub-
Treasuries or depositories in the sev
eral States which shall loan money
direct to the people at a low rate of
interest, not to exceed 2 per cent,
per annum on non-perishable farm
products, and also upon real estate,
with proper limitations upon the
quantity of land and amount ot mon
ey ; we demand that the amount ol
the circulating medium be speedily
increased to not less than $50 per
2. We demand that Congress
shall pass such laws as shall effectu
ally prevent the dealing in futures in
all agricultural and mechanical pro
ductions ; preserving a stringent sys
tem of procedure in trials such as
shall secure the prompt conviction
and imposition of such penalties as
shall secure the most perfect com
pliance with the law.
3. We denounce the silver bill
recently passed by Congress, and
demand in lieu thereof the free and
unlimited coinage of silver.
4. We demand the passage of
laws prohibiting alien ownership of
land, and that Congress take prompt
action to devise some plan to obtain
all lands now owned by alien? and
foreign syndicates, and that all lands
now held' by railroad and other cor
porations in excess of such as is act
ually used and needed by them, be
reclaimed by the government and
held for actual settlers only.
5. Believing in the doctrine ol
equal rights to all and special privil
eges to none, we demand that our na
tional legislation shall be so framed
in the luture as not to build up one
industry at the expense of another.
We further demand a removal of the
existing heavy tariff tax from the
necessaries of life that the poor oi
our land must have. We further
demand a just and equitable system
of graduated tax on incomes. We
believe that the money of the cotm-
try should be kept as much as possi
ble in the hands of the people and
hence we demand that all revenues
shall be limited to the necessary ex
penses of the government economi
cally and honestly administered.
f. We demand the most rigid,
honest and just State and national
governmental control and supervis
ion of the methods of public com
munication and transportation, and if
this eontrol and supervision do not
remove the abuse now existing, we
demand the government ownerhip of
such means ol communication and

Monday of last week Ben Terrell
spoke in Statesville. He has chang
ed very much since he was here. He
was all all that the Landmark heard
he was in Wilson. Here is the way
he impressed the accomplished edi
tor of the Landmark : Editor.
Mr. Ben. Terrell, who comes ac
credited as "the Alliance orator of
Texas," has been in this State for
some weeks and filled an appoint
ment here Monday. He has been
reported by the press of the State as
a conservative speaker, an instructor
whose instruction could not be other
wise than beneficial to the farmers
a calm reasoner, a dispassionate pa
triot, a fair man, and all that. Mr.
Terrell did not sustain this character
here. He is not a calm reasoner, a
dispassionate patriot nor a fair man.
His manner and his speech were
extremely offensive to people out
side the Alliance. He came not
with peace but with the sword. He
evidently did not desire to add to the
membership of the Alliance nor t
make friends for the order, for he in
dulged himself chiefly in reckless
assertion and insolent demand.
Thus, for instance, he took one
plank after another of the Democrat
ic platform, laid it dow n as if it w ere
something entirely new, then shook
Ins fist at all the world and demand
ed that everybody should subscribe
to things that everybody here had
subscribed to before he was ever
heard of. I le eloquently denounc
ed the acknowledged evils that are
to come from the alien and corpor
ate ownership of land, but did not
tell how Cleveland had vacated one
unearned land grant after another.
He said that the whole course of
legislation for twenty-live years had
been opposed to the interests of the
farmers, but did not tell who had en
acted this legislation or who had up
posed it. He did not say one word
about the last Congress having ap
propriated one billion dollars, nor
raise his voice against the pension
steal. His evident purpose was to
dissatisfy the people with the exist
ing order of stings, w ithout indica
ting to them who or what hid
brought the present evils about or
giving any clear idea of the remedy
for thetn. He denounced corporate
power in such way as to leave the
impression that every man outside
the Alliance was in sympathy with
the corporations as against the peo
ple, and addressed monopolists as it
the house were full of them. This is
w hy w e say the manner of his speech
was most offensive. It was almost
such as to make men reject the doc
trines w hich they had preached and
practiced all their lives.
Mr. Terrell hammered on the Sub
Treasury nonsense at considerable
length and with as much earnestness
as if he believed in it.
We wish w e could have under
stood him as to the Alliance as a po
litical force, but on this point he was
to deep for us. He said that every
candidate who expected Alliance
support must come to the Alliance
demands otherwise the Alliance
would beat him, but still the order as
such is not political and cannot be.
This declaration was thoroughly
uncandul. 1 he Alliance is either a
political party or it is not : it either
allow s its members freedom of politi
cal action or it does not. Now
which? Who is authorized to speak
for the order and will do it honestly?
Is an Allianceman allowed to vote
for an anti-Sub-Treasury candidate
or is he not? Is he allowed to vote
for an anti-free coinage candidate or
is he not? In other words, is he al
lowed to be a Democrat and an Alli
anceman both, or must he either be
one or the other ? If he is a Re
publican, may he continue to be one
and still be Allianceman, or must he
lay down his Republicanism ? John
B. Holman, Esq., is the President of
Iredell county Alliance. We should
like to know what he has to say
about this matter a strolling lectur
er raises the issue but we decline to
accept his dictum. If the Demo
cratic party refuses to accept the de
mands of the Alliance that refusal,
according to Mr. Terrell, absolves
the Democratic Allianceman from till
further obligation to his party. Now
is that so? It it is, that means tne
third party, for the Democratic par
ty is not going to accept the Sub
Treasury heresy. We hope to have
a specific declaration from Mr. Hol
man on this subject. Are Demo
cratic Alliancemen going to continue
to try their fortunes with the Demo
cratic party, getting what they can
get, or are they going to quit unless
thev can uet from it all that they
want? A clean, square, honest un
derstanding about this matter is very
much, needed. As long as demands
are in order we make this demand in
the interest of honest politics. They
are very much mistaken who have
an idea that the Landmark has any
interest in the success of the Demo
cratic party apart from the common
interest. We are quite sure that it is
the best interest of the people that the
Democratic party should control the
State and the nation, but the Land
mark can stand any sort of govern
ment that anybody else can, and it is
making its present inquiries, not in a
partisan spirit but with a view to an
honest understanding. Mr. Terrell
has put the case as a choice between
God and Baal. We are entitled to
know how this is and we iK mand to
know . Mr. Terrell says th it the Al
liance does not want every little edi
tor in its counsels nor every little pa
per as an Alliance organ. We are
not allowed, therefore, to go into the
inner circle and conll- with our Al
liance friends w ho are Democrats as
to what is best to be done for the
public and the party interest. What
we want to know then of Mr. Hol
man and his associates of the inner
circle is, w hether if we of the outer
circle of the party should be strong
enough, in a Democratic county con
vention, for instance, to oxerslaugh
him and his inner circle, he and iiis
inner circle will accept the situation
as minorities 111 all ages have done
and as we should do if beaten in a
a fair trial of strength, or whether,
after trying their fortunes with the
Democratic party, and being defeat
ed in their effort to engraft some
new policy upon it, they would feel
themselves free to repudiate the ac
tion of the majority ? It is almost ;m
insult to as good a Democrat and as
honorable a gentleman as Mr. Dol
man to ask him this question, but it
is Mr. Terrell who raises the issue,
not the Landmark, and the public is
entitled to know how the case stands.
Returning to the more immediate
subject, Mr. Terrell cut the members
of the Alliance loose from their party
allegiance but gave them i place to
go to. He gav e them to understand
that they are not to stippoi t anv party
that does not endorse all of their de
mands, but told them that they could
not nominate a ticket of their own.
So that if no party endorses all ot
their demands they are not to vote at
all, we suppose.
Deprecating prejudice, this speech
was in large part an appeal to preju
dice, and we very much fear that some
of those for whom it was intended
quit the court hou hating their
neighbors more than the .- had ever
hated them before.

Now let us suppose that t'.ie Sub
Treasury had been in operation at
the beginning of the season. The
price ol" cotton was then 10-d cents.
Suppose that tlie bulk of the cotton
was withheld and only a small quan
tity had been allowed to come for
ward. The price would either have
remained stationary or would have
advanced. The mills would have
cut down their consumption. Know
ing that the crop was ample, they
would have bought very sparingly.
In the meantime the planters would
be carrying their large crop, let us
say at no particular charges or ex
pense. But as the months passed
and the business men w ho handled
cotton realized that the crop w as so
far in excess of the needs of the mills
that it could not be consumed before
the new crop would come in, the
price would have declined far below
the present figure, and with the bulk
of the crop still in the government

This would leave them in debt to the
