Dear Sir.—In reply to yonr letter as to
the merits of the Liquid Enamel Paint, it
affords me pleasure to say it has given en*
tire satiafiiction, so much so it has conver
ted the painter that applied it. In fact
the opposition to it was so intense when
I was about to buy, I should have likelj

you so many years and having great confi*

The People's Party licld u convention
lit Halifax on Monday iind called to
order by C. P. Siiniuonf, who hud liocn
Hppoiotcd provifioniil chnirnian of the
Kxecutive Coniniittcp. Mr. Simmons
nominiited Capt. K. A. Thorne for tem
porary chairman,' and W. R. Harvey
Capt. Thorne explained the oliject of
the meeting to be to elect delegates to the
CjDgressional uunveutioD and a presi
dential eleetor and advised harmony.
He then announced the next businesa to
be the appointnient of eominittecs on
credentials and permanent organization.
The roll of townships was called and cach
named a member of the committee on
credentials which was constituted as fol-
loWB : Rrinkleyville, J 11 Shenrin;
Buttcrwood, H N Clark; Conoconara,
J A Popp; Enfield, C A Camp; Fancetts,
J J Goodwyn; Halifax, Geo. Skinner;
Littleton, W M Martin; Palmyra, W.
T. Bufltn; Rosene«th,J C Hass; Seotlnnd
Neck, J A White; Woldon, C D Hem-
On motion of H J Hewlin the tempo
rary erganization was made permaaent.
While the committee was preparing its
nport the reporter had leisure to look
over the convention. There were about
one hundred preient and all of them
seemed in earnest about the business
which had brought them together. There
was no excitement; in fact no emotion
could be observed save a grim determina
tion to proceed and succeed, if possible,
upon the lines marked out. They did
not seem to see the difficulties in the way,
nor the dire remits from which they, too,
would suffer should the movement which
they advocate fail of success. They were
oonfident of success.
Fauoetts, Enfield and Littleton town
ships were not represented by delegates
though there were gentlemen present
from all of them. In Enfield, only two
persons attended the primary, in Faucetts
five or six were present, and in these two
townships no action was taken. In Lit
tleton we were informed that no meeting
was held. The failure to hold meetings
in those toitnships and send delegates was
explained by the statement that the notice
gave such shoit time the people did not
know of it.
Among the duly accredited delegates
were W B Harvey a white Bepublican
and R J Mayo, H J Hewlin and George
Powell, colored, and the three latter had a
good deal to do with the business in hand-
Ei-Senator J J Ooodwyn ' was also
present and took a prominent part in the
proceeding!), and his experience in such
matters was very useful to the convention.
The colored brethren were also well up in
parliamentary tactics aqd showed famil
iarity with the rules which usually govern
deliberative bodies. But the committee
was ready to report by this lime, and our
observations were cut short.
The committee reported all the town
ships represented, and the ohair stated
that the convention could allow townships
to be represented by those who were
present, or the vote could be apportioned
Mr. Simmons said owing to the short-
nesfi of the time given, meetings were nut
held io ev«ry towoibip.
11. J. Mayo thought the names of
H. J. Hewlin moved that those dele
gates who were duly elected bo admitted
and that thoie in attendance from town
ships which bad held no meetings should
elect delegates to represent their town-
shlpi". This ni Mirvn being ad.ipted the
cliair ruled that the committi'f on creden
tials should prepare a lia ol' tiii’ (ii''?'gate0
and also report the representation allowed
Mr. ,1. H. Wood stated that ho had
been appointed a delegate from Weldon
town.ship withuut his knowledge and
asked that ho be excused and sonio one
clflfl put in his place. Mr. Wood was
excused, and a delegate remaiked as he
left the hall that Mr. Wood had been put
on tho delegation at his own request.
W. M. Marlin for the committoo on
credentials repotted that the committeo'
recommended that cach township have
seven delegates and submitted their
names, an follows:
Brinkleyville—IKB Harvey, E H
Davis, H J Hewlin, R J Harvey, J B

On motion of J. J. Goodwyn, seconded
by George Powell, the report was received
The chair stated that the next business
was the election of a county executive
committee. A great work was before
them, and they should be well organized.
A motion was made by Mr. Goodwyn,
seconded by George Powell, that the
committee be eoniposed of one from each
township, and was afterward, on motion
of W Bowers, amended so that the
committee be composed of tho chiirmcn
of the several townships oommittees. The
names were handed in and the county
executive committee is as follows.
Brinkleyville, J R Shearin; Butter-
wood, K A Patterson; Conoconara, J A
Pope; Enfield, 0 P Simmons; Faucetts,
J T Dawson; Halifax, G H Skinner;
Littleton, W M Martin; Palmyra, W T
Ruffin; Roseneath, J C Basf; Scotland
Neok, J A White; Weldon, C D Hem-
Numiuations fur delegates to the con
gressional convention to meet on the IGth
being declared in erder the following
were put in nomination : J R Shearin,
E A Thorne, G H Skinner, C P Sim-
■ons, W T Ruffin, B F Morse, J A
White, W E Barkley, H J Hewlin, W
R Harvey, W E Bowers, C D Hemmings,
J C Bass.
R J Mayo was also put in nomination
hut asked that his name be withdrawn as
he could not possibly attend.
W M Martin moved that four names
be selected from those nominated as
J J Ooodwyn objected, saying that
when a new revival was inaugurated they
needed all the shouting they could get,
and moved that all those nominated be
elected, which motion prevailed.
Hewlin moved that in voting for dele-
gstea the roll of townships be called. This
was ruled out of order, as the election
had already been made.
The ohair announced that it was io
order to appoint a committee on platform
on State matters to report at the next
meeting, as there were State affairs which
wfre not uiiLUuucd in tK^ St. Louis
R J Mayo moved, seconded by II J
Hewlin, that a committee of five bo ap
pointed to prepare a platform, which
being amended so as to include tho chair
man on ihe committee, was adopted, aud
the chair was directed to name the
committee and was given further time to
make his selections.
The convention then decided to eleet
a eliairinan of tho county executive coin-
uiittee and tho following numinatiocs
wcro mad»: E A Thorne, Dr R A
Patterson, \V E Bowers, C P Simmons,
W M Martin. The names of E A Thorne
and C P Simmons were withdrawn at
their recpiest, as was also Dr Patterson
upon the statement uf Mr Bowers that
the Dr was nut present nnd it was not
known whether ho would accept. He
said he would favor the election of Dr
Patterson if he was certain he Hould
accept. Tho ballot by townships resulted
in the election of Mr. Bowers, lie receiv
ing 75votes and Mr. Martin 2.
Mr. Simuions said ho had thought up
on tho question considerably and had
concluded that the convention ought to
make noiuioations for tho Legislature
to day and make no other noinination.s,
and made a motion to that effect seconded
by Mr. J. A. Popo.
Mr. John Patterson olVered a substi
tute that all nominatious be postponed
till some future time.
Mr. Hemmings favoied Mr. Simmons'
motion. Ho wanted to nominate legis
lative ticket to day aud wait until the
two old parlies had actcd before going
further. They would then know what
Mr. Popo opposed postponement. They
would be stronger after doing Bomething.
(Applause.) Let the iron jackct Deuio-
crats know what we would do, and if they
wanted anything they could come to us.
George Powell favored nominating
candidates. He said we have fished with
both parties; they had eaten all tho fish
and left us nothing. (Applause) Now
is the time to mako a ticket. 1 have been
told that the big niggers and big white
men are togetherand the poor niggers and
whites are together. Let the poor niggers
and poor whites stand together and win.
He came here to represent not whites
alone nor blacks, but the people of his
township. What under Heaven’s sun
do you poor whites want to stay in the
Democratic party for? What do I want
to stay in the Republican parly for?
Tho best lawyer in Eastern Carolina says
there is no diScrence between them.
(Applause.) We don't propose to strike
the property or color line. I don’t sec
five men here who have not been whipped
to the polls by tho party lash. If we
make a part of the ticket let us make it
all. If you don’t make all, make none,
and let the Democrats and Republicans
have their way as they have done. I
don’t keep up with political issues, but
I know one thing, I know I and Capt.
Kitchin are the smartest men in North
Carolina and both of us say there is no
diOurence between the old parties. Star
vation bus brought the poor niggers and
poor whites together and we propose to
t^top it. Blood naay run but we intend
to stop it in spite of all creation. If you
do not mako a ticket here to day you will
never see me again.
Powell’s speech was applauded several
times and caused considerable mrrriment.
He seemed especially pleased to ring tho
changes on the “pour niggers and poor
whites.” Doubtless he was looking be
yond to a time when he hoped he would
ha admitted to terms of social equality
with the “poor whites," as he called
Hewlin thought it was too early to
make nominations. Give the people
time until July or August to think about
it and a satisfactory ticket could be made
Mr. Goodwyn favored postponement.
He thought enwgh had already been
accomplished to-day to give satisfaction
to the people. By waiting the two ele
ments which now divided the Anglo-
Saxon race might get together by ooncil-
infio^. ITeravoroJ making no nomination^
or elso putting • full ticket io the fiiild.
By waiting some unity of action might
be arrived at, which would be satisfactory
to all, besides it would be better to wait
and sec what would be done at Omaha.
I’owell said if you make legislative ticket
and do not nominate bonded (jlllcers the
negroes will get out of the movement.
K. J. Mayo thought another conven
tion should be called to make nouiinatioi:s
in order that tho people could have time
to consider the matter.
Mr. Ruffin thought it would be better
to postponu actiiin until after the Omaha
con vention as a matter of prudence.
Mr. Simmuns imi.ited on hid motion.
He had no f-clfish motive in making the
motion, but thought it would bo best to
nominate a legislative ticket to-day, and
djfer action on other nominations until
Mr. Patterson again opposed (he no
tion and urged the convention not to
Mr. J. 11. Shearin said all the toun-
ships were not apprized of the convention
and were not fully represented. He
urged patiencc and advised delay ai d
come here later nnd do our duty.
Powell said if an executive eommiltii
anil delegates to 'the Congressional coi
vention could be elected to-day when i
the townships were not fully ropre.scnte '
he ci.uld not sec why nominations cou! | ‘
not he made also.
Mr. Shearin said it was necessary to
cleat delegates to day because tho Con-
gres.»ional convention would meet next
Thursday and there was not time to wait
for another meeting.
Powell said thero was only one negro
in Congress and ha would not like to go
home nnd tell his people he had voted to
send delegates to a convention to name a
man who was to kill the only negro in
Congress and did not make county nomi
nations, If you you do one thing fair do
George Morgan thought the sooner a
legislative ticket was made the more con
fidence would be inspired,
Mr. J. A. White could not see any
advantage in postponement. The peo
ple who are not here take no interest in
the movement—if they did they would
have been here or had delegates here to
Mr. Hemmings said he had been in
favor of immediate action but because
some of tho townships were not regularly
represented he had changed his opinion.
Sir. Thad Bowers was in favor of post
ponement to keep the other side from
knowing what was going to be done.
They had men ought watching.
Mr. W. E. Bowers thought a week
ago that a full ticket ought to be made
but he had concluded when there was any
doubt to wait until it could be ascertained
what ought to be done.
Mr. Pope said he had been thinking
about it and had changed his opinion.
He now thought tho best way was to do
nothing until later.
Capt. Thorne being called upon for
his opinion said it was on y a question
of expediency. The matter had not
been ci n .’'s^ed sufficiently and it required
prudence and forethought,
There was considerable discussion for
and against the proposition. It was evi
dent that when the motion of Mr. Sim
mons was first made a large majority was
in favor of immediate action, but after
discu.'^sing .he (juesiion, and possibly a
little missionary work by those who
wanted delay, tho substitute of Mr. Pat
terson to the effect that no nominations
be made until a future meeting was adopt
ed by a vote of 41 to 34.
Mr .1. T. T oy offered a resolution en
dorsing Cul. L. L. Polk for President
Mr. Goodwyn offered a resolution en
dorsing the St. Louis platform.
Both resolutions were unanimously adop
ted, and on motion convention adjourned
to mpflt aiiain on the call of the chairman of
the Ejtecuiive committee, the several
townships or any of them being author
ized to hold new primaries if it should be
