NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC TICKET.
' For President :
WILLIAM J, BRYAN. Of HeMa.
ADIAI . STEVENSON, Of IMS.
"A PITIFUL SITUATION."
When the American army, under
General Miles, landed on the island
. of Porto Eico, it was received with
joyful acclaim by the people, who
raised the Stars and Stripes as an
emblem of the freedom which had
pome and -proof of, the tyranny"
which had vanished. That was little
more than a year and a half ago and
these people who so warmly wel-
- corned our soldiers then and enthu
siastically raised "the American flag
now hate the name of American
and raise the Spanish flag which
they once looked upon aa a badge
.of tyranny. On the 4th of July
there was no rejoicing and no
American flags were visible save
over the camps or the barracks
where American soldiers are sta
tioned or over buildings occupied
' by : American Officers or repre
sentatives of this Government. A
couple weeks ago they celebrated
the annual festival of some Saint, a
custom with them, observed all over
the island. On that occasion there
were no American flags visible but
there were visible thousands of
Spanish flags.. Commenting upon
this change in the feelings of the
people of that island the New York
Herald editorially says:
"Under the treatment to which they
have been subjected bthe existing
fovernment of the United States the
'uerto Bicans have learned to hate
their new rulers.
'The latest article from thai HeralcT$
special correspondent bears unmis
takable testimony to this disagreeable
and disgraceful fact disgraceful to
those who have denied the just expec
tations of the people of the island and
' placed them under a yoke more irk
some than Spain's.
"All classes of natives welcomed
the American army with open arms,
accepted the Stars and Stripes with
ardent enthusiasm and cheered to the
echo their supposed liberators. Our
army officers reported these facts, and
the civilian Commissioners returned
from the island with the same . story
and strongest possible recommenda
tions that the people be given the Ter
ritorial foam of government they
craved and frade with the United
States President McKinley in his mes
sage last December assuring Congress
that it was "our plain duty" to open
our ports to their products.
"Dr. H. K: Carroll, who, as Special
Commissioner, gave . public hearings
in every part of the island and made
an exhaustive investigation, reported
1 to President McKinley that many
- Puerto Bicanshad long prayed for
American intervention, and that un
der the shield of the United States
they expected the wrongs of centuries
to be righted. They wsre confident
that they were . to have the largest
measure of liberty as citizens of the
great Republic under the constitution,
home rule as provided by our Territo
rial system and free interchange of
products with the United States.
Largely attended meetings were held,
and the unfortunate islanders fancied
that they saw themselves entering up
on a new and glorious era as citizens
of the United 8tates.
y ,4They were willing to be kept wait
ing indefinitely in the Territorial stage,
like New Mexico, for instance, but
they expected to be treated by the
United States as a mother treats her
child. Tyrannical Spain gave the
island free markets to buy and sell in,
allowed manhood suffrage, sixteen full
. Deputies and four Senators to the Cor
tes at Madrid and twelve representa
tives in the Municipal Assembly. Con
trast this with the government im
posed by Mr. McKinley and a Repub
lican Congress at the instance of the
protectionists the sugar and tobacco
growers with the declaration that
they are not Americans, but foreigners
beyond the pale of the constitution,
, and the imposition of a customs tariff
upon their products.
It is surprising that the Fourth of
J uly this year was not observed by the
natives or that at the festival observed
last week the American fag was con
spicuous by its absence in San Juan,
while thousands of Spanish ensigns
were flung to the breeze f The resent
ment against Americans chronicled by
the Herald's correspondent is precise-
.. ly that might be expected to follow
our conduct to the islanders. They
find they have merely changed mas
ters, and In .some respects the new
masters are worse than the old. The
commission appointed to revise the ob-
noxious old Spanish laws has not vet
left the United States to begin its du
ties, and there is a touch of grim hu
mor in the manner in which the native
magistrates are rigorously applying
these to (Americans that fall under
It is a pitiful situation, and if the
United States is to escape the reproba
tion of mankind it must be radically
'. The Hermld is a non-partisan jour
nal, so non-partisan that it some
times hits the parties as if to show
: that it takes special pride in being
non-partisan; It favored McHinley's
election in 1896, and as s between
Bryan and McKinley, would prefer
McKinley again, but it is opposed to
such breaches of faith, and to such
national dishonor as we have wit
nessed In the treatment of the Porto
Bicans and the Filipinos.' -
Gen. Miles, under the impression
v that he understood the purposes of
the administration at Washington I
and that he spoke for it, issued a
a proclamation in which he assured
the people of Porto Rico that their
island would occupy precisely the '
same status under this Government
that our Territories do, and that the
neoDle would enjoy all the rigtits
and privileges that citizens of the j
Territories do. That proclamation wa I
never revoked or in the slightest de
gree modified, and it was never inti
mated that General Miles had ex
ceeded his authority, oi that there
was anything in it that the adminis-
tration did not sanction; and it
went on that way until Congress
Began to patch up a civil govern
ment for the island to take the place
of the military government. In the
meantime President McKinley
showed that he approved of the
promises made by General Miles by
making some suggestions in his
message last "December in reference
to our "plain duty" in the treat
ment of the people of that island.
It was his opinion that Porto Bico
was a part of the United States, on
the footing aa other" territories, and
that its people were entitled to all
the rights and privileges enjoyed by
citizens of other territories.
That is what he thought then
and continued to think until the
political contributors to Republican
campaign funds brought their magic
influence o bear upon him, changed
his views- and caused him to re
nounce his "plain duty" recom
mendations. And then the Porto
Ricans discovered that American
promises didn't amount to anything,
that they had been buncoed, that
they had in their misguided faith
repudiated one master to take an
other, and that is why they don't
raise the American flg any more and
why they hate the Americans whom
they welcomed with so, much joy.
It is, as the Herald says, "a pitiable
situation," and the pity of it is, we
ourselves made it.
The case of Porto Rico is not as
shameful and dishonorable as the
case of the Philppines where there
was also breach of faith, for we have
not yet begun to shoot and butcher
the Porto Ricans, as we have been
and are shooting and butchering the
Fipinos, because they refuse to be
AFRAID THEY WILL LOSE CON
GRESS. ' -While the Bepublican leaders pro
fess a confidence (which they do not
feel) n the election of their Presi
dential ticket, they have grave ap
prehensions that the Democrats will
capture the next House of Repre
sentatives, which would make the
re-election of McKinley, outside of
the control of patronage, a barren
victory for them.
In a i recent interview, Chairman
Babcock, of the Republican Congres
sional Committee, freely confessed
that, he feared the loss of the House,
which, in his opinion, could be held
only-by hard and persistent effort.
A good many of the leading Repub
licans agree with him, among them
being the New York Sun (not easily
frightened), which in noting this in
terview says: -
"The Chairman of the Bepublican
Congressional' Committee, the Hon.
Joseph W. Babcock, of Wisconsin,
underestimates neither the importance
nor the difficulty of securing an ade-
fuate Bepublican majority in the next
ouse of Representatives.
"That is the proper attitude for a
campaign executive who has ahead of
him such a job as now engages Mr.
Babcock's interest and energies.
"The margin of control in the pres
ent Congress is none too large for com
fort. The capture of the Fifty-seventh
House by the party of Bryan and Acrui-
naldo would be a national misfortune
only second to the defeat of McKinley
"The Democrats possess a great ad
vantage in the positive assurance in
advance of a solid block of 120 Repre
sentatives from the Southern States.
To secure a majority in the next
House they will have to elect only
fifty-nine additional members, and to
acquire these fifty-nine members it is
not necessary to carry a single North
ern state for the Jf residential ticket.
New York, for example, might go for
McKinley by a large majority and yet
send seventeen or more Democrats to
to the House. And so on throughout
the North. -
"In the absence of the third Presiden
tial ticket, it is likely that those ene
mies of the Administration who style
themselves anti-imperialists will con
centrate their efforts upon the close
congress aistricts throughout the
country. That is to say, they will
throw their rotes and whatever influ
ence they can exert in a close district
in favor of Democratic candidates
without regard to the financial ques
tion. They will pretend that the first
duty is to save the republic from Im
perialism, militarism and destruction.'
"With or without this factor, there
is a hard fight ahead in every close
district in the country. Republicans
who do not want the Bepublican Ad
ministration to be blocked, hampered
or embarrassed in 1902 and 1903 by a
hostile majority in the House of Rep
resentatives, and business men who do
not desire to see the tide of Bryanism
rise in any branch of the Government,
had better not take . too much for
"Mr. Babcock is right Republicans
should be up and doing in every Con
gress not hopelessly Democratic."

CAUSE FOR CONGRATULATION.
The white people of North Caro
lina are to be congratulated on the
glorious victory won by them yes
terday, victory jfhich means much
for North Carolina now and here
after. . .
. The adoption of the constitu
tional amendment solves, as far as
the ballot box can solve it, the race
problem and puts an end to the
friction and incessant conflicts that
marked every one of our political
campaigns. This of itself is such
an achievement that every true
white man and woman in the State
should rejoice over it, as should
also every negro who has sense
enough to appreciate the benefit it
will be to him.
The election of the Democratic
State ticket takes the State Govern
ment out of the hands of incompe
tent time-servers and puts it in the
hands of true men whom the' people
of this State, whether they agree
with them politically or not, can and
And, last but not least, it means
consigning to merited and perpetual
oblivion the wretched gang of con
spirators who to promote their own
petty ambitions and feather their
own nests, have done all they could
to drag North Carolina down, and
make it a political hell, in every
election when their ambition or
pockets might be affected.
Few people think it worth while,
or take any satisfaction in kicking a
dead dog, but there is a feeling of
relief and a sense of joy in realizing
that North Carolina will no longer
be an inviting field for the opera
tions and the plottings of such un
scrupulous conspirators and degener
ates as Marion Butler, Hoi ton & Co.,
and their, henchmen, who resorted
to such infamous methods to defeat
the will of the people and make black
supremacy perpetual. Retribution,
long on.the way, has come at last
and Ve may all thank God for this
happy riddance of intolerable pests
THE RES SHIRT.
J ndging from the remarks o' some
of our Northern contemporaries on
the red shirt, they have some very
erroneous notions about it. They
seem to regard it as the representa
tive of mob law and violence, when
as a matter of fact it is the reverse.
No one can point to a single in
stance in this State where the peace
was broken or a disturbance created
by a red shirt man. v There have
been some instances where speakers
who had made themselves odious, or
where imported speakers who came
among our people to stir up strife
and trouble by appealing to ignor
ant negroes, have been given to
understand that their presence was
not desired, and they generally took
the hint and retired from that lo
cality. The red shirt has been really a
peace preserver, and is worn by as
good and law-abiding men as live in
thisor any other State. It is no
more emblematic of lawlessness and
violence than were the white dresses
worn by lovely women who thus at
tired took part in the parades and
white supremacy meetings, the suc
cess of which meant so much to
them. The red shirt is all right.

Raleigh, N. C, July 29.
Mr. Francis M. Moore, Phoenix, N. C:
Dear Sir Referring to your favor
of yesterday, I beg to say that my un
derstanding .is that the convention
which nominated Dr. McNeill passed
resolutions endorsing theAmendment
and calling upon the npminees in our
party in that county to . support it
Notwithstanding this, I understand
Dr. McNeill refused to support the
Amendment Under these circum
stances, the Democratic Executive Com
mittee of Brunswick county did right
in repudiating his candidacy and pre
senting to the people another candidate
for the position to which Dr. McNeill
was nominated. The Committee hav
ing selected youJn the place of Dr.
McNeill, under these circumstances, I
think you are entitled to the support
of the Democrats of your county for
the Legislature. I have so written
Mr. M. C. Guthrie, Chairman of the
Democratic Executive Committee of
Yours, truly. -
