' 1 We regard the j c ounty government question as incomparably more im portant to Bertie and Bladen, to - J 1?MAnMnha 1-JrftTlVl 1 1 A i - Viaicu uu ' and Franklin, to Greene and Halifax, . to Hertford and Jones, to Lenoir and Pasquotank, to Pender and Pre quimans, to Warren and New Han over, and other counties, than all others combined. County govern ment comes directly home to every tax-payer, It Is !a question of dol- lars and cents. It is a question of It honest, fair and just government. is a question of-high or low taxes. There is no mistaking the significancy and importance of this question. r In twenty-three t counties the ac tual saving to the people in one "year by the change made from the old imported ! Radical system and that now in use was- over $100,000. In ten years more than a. million dollars would be saved. - The people groan under Federal, .State and; county taxes, propose to vote i for men Do , they who come out openly, Jtmt under a false pretense, and declare that they are in favor of restoring negro domination? This is to give i financial matters again in to the hands of ihe negroes. This is to return to thej extravagance and plundering of all the years after the Radicals got control in North Caroli na until the Democrats changed the system, and thai went into effect in 1879. 1 Tjhat vear over one hundred thousand dollars - was saved to the taxpayerjj of twenty-three counties. , The Raleigh! News- Observer has published -A table in . which are con- i. r. county government 1 i f ' systems' in fifty counties. It takes the taxes collected for county pur- poses in lSli- '5 system -negroes under the Radical bossing and mani- pulating I the finances and" the white man?s system now in - use in 1880 : "'81. The result is that there was a positive saving of $227,176.05, or nearly a (quarter, oi a minion aoiiars in one yean. In 1874-'75, the taxes - in these fifty counties for county purposes were $651,302,65. -.In 1880- '81 the" ior the same purposes were but $424,126.60. ; There are Democratic papers that are dissatisfied with such grand re- us, and are favoring a restoration of the negro plundering system, There are Democrats jwho are for affiliating with thej Radical-Mongrel ticket upon 6ne plea1 or another, but chiefly to get - bach negro, rule. ' They are not so much enamored of Radical loaves and fishes as; they are in love with a rascally system .that pillaged and oppressed th 3 people most' unmerci7 t fully. . . Since the Democrats changed the system and gave the honest tax payers the control of 'county finances many hundreds of thousands of dol- ;Iars have' been saved to the people. The saying ini the years 1879, 1880 and 1881 to the .tax-Da vers of the entire State ' must; be, approximately or quite one million dollars.' ; ; Will the white tax-payers of the Third Cftngressional District vote for any men for office who have the .; cheek toT stand up" before them and advoeate a return to negro rule? - - - Will the white "tax-payers of the' Cape Fear country sustain any party that will -be wicked andy unjust and cruel enough to attempt to remand them to negro; control to high and grievous taxes to i be squandered ' and stolen as was th"e case under the old . system? Go to your county records and see - how.yonr money was taken from you r under the forms' of law and thrown away recklessly, misap plied and stolen. ' " . ; t -uuuuu giviiij; mt) people the right to elect county com missioners and magistrates -is trans parent demagogism." Why do 'riot these men who shriek' for . a change . ' here also demand . a chanaje as to postmasters, revenue collectors, Fed eral Court officials 'and all offices . directly concerning th people of - ;North Carolina? - The fact that they are ait dumb as oysters, and as silent J . as thV grave about these important offices,1 in' which the -people are very much interested, shows that they are not sincere or acting from principle, but from unadulterated demagogue- ry. They hope by, this means to divide and conquer. They -h'ope first to divide the 'Democratic 1. party. TFhev hope second to divide the West and East thereby. . " It remains to be seen if the white tax-payers of the East will agree? to any, change i in the, countv govern ment and if they will-embrace .Radi- ealisra in order to increase the taxes. - AMERICAN LEGION OF HON- ,. .- A '.

This is an evidence of Chris tian sympathy and brotherly feeling which it is very pleasant to find existing in this world which is giveir "so much to hard hearted neglect and indifference or the cold formalities which carry' with . them no' warmth of feeling or words of cheer.
