Dockery, in his speech here last
week, trievl to create the impression
that Judge Fowle had been guilty of
improper conduct in rega 1 to some
o'f the sp-:ial tax bonds issued by
he radical Legislature in 1868. Of
course no honest man believes that i
. . tl . , i,,. i
there is any truth in s.ich a chuge,
and when Dockery makes so untrue
a' charge it shows to what desperate ; say, has aroused the farmers of these
shaits he is driven. Even Dockery's ; sections in a way not be fore known,

that there id auv truth m such a !
charge. In its issue of the 10th. of
last May, that paper has a long edi
torial about the inning and fraudu
lent disposition of these bonds, and
says that J udge Fowle's conduct con
cerning th'-m "showed that he was
honest''. These are the words used
by tne leading republican paper of
North Carolina, and one whoe editor
is ihw most influential republican in
the State. Also one of Mr. Dockery's
colleagues on the State ticket bears
public testimony to Judge Fowle's
hiffh character. Mr. C. F. McKesson,
the republican nominee for State I
Auditor, in his letter of acceptance,

cumphmeLfs Juage Fowle and the
other democratic candidates by using
the toiiowing language about them: I
ihe recent Democratic convention
b confronted us with a clean, square
ticket, the. perso:. J oi which is above
reproach." Yes, that is true, every
fprd of it ; for Fowle, Holt, Sauder
lin, Finger, Baiu and Davidson are
all "clean", "square", and "above re
proach", and are no more to be coni
jmred o Dockery and his crowd than
the brigutness of the noon day sun
to midnight darkness!
-ockeky seems to be as unscrupu
lous a demagogue as Tyre York, and
he will meet with a like overwhelm
ing defeat. In his speech here he
repeated the old lie about President
Cleveland having 'entertained Fred
Douglass at dinner, and when Dock
eYy uttered such a slander he knew
that it was not true ! Now, what
ought decent, honest people to think
6f a man aspiring to the high and
honorable position of Governor and
telling so vile a falsehood ou the
President! Not satisfied with slan
dering Mr. Cleveland, Dockery so far
degraded his manhood as to utter a
Blander on Mrs. Cleveland, by stating
that she (to use his own words) had
kissed ifi negro wench." Col. Dock

Dockeby, in his speeches, tries io
xcite the prejudices of the farmers
ftgarost Judge Fowle because the
latter is a lawyer, and tells them that
they ought not to vote for lawyers,
and yet does riot tell the'itf that a
iaaiority of the republican candidates
on th State ticket are lawyers ! Yet,-
th k fact ritchardf Me.Keewnv
and Mason, the republican candidates
for Lieutenant-Governor, Auditor,
and Superintendent of Public In
struction, are all lawyers ; whereas
not one of the democratic candidates
for the same positious is a lawyer.
And yet Dockery, tho demagogue,

he is a lawyer, does not mention this
fact. Let the people wmember this I
Independents, so called, are looked
Upon with suspicion by both parties,
and are not trusted by either, Even
the republican papers are now calling
on their readers to -watch" the inde- j
pendents. The leading republican
paper of the State, the Raleigh Sig
nal, had an editorial last week on the
so-called independents, and asserted
that an "independent is nothing but
a democrat in disguise. Watch him!''
Now, is'nt that too bad on some of
the "brethren"? The same editorial
very truly says "there are but two
parties Republican and Democratic.

Leading Democrats from many
States have been in town for a day
or two in attendance upon the liist

to stimulate curiosity as to the posi-
tion tne s. o. n. will liud itself in when
Congress adjourns. It is said that
the lines of the biii diverge very wide
ly from the rigid high protection ideas
of the Republican leaders in the
House, and that there will be a good
deal of music in camp before t be meas

of course, will be advocated to help

The reigning local topic, one that
completely overshadows politics and

Speaking of polities, there has been
a lull during the past week, but they
tea us that something will be heard
to drop in the courae of a very few
days. It is only once in twelve years
that the citizens of the Metropolis
nave tne opportunity of voting for
President, Governor and Mayor at
the same time. The last time it hap
pened was in the Tilden campaign of
'76. That is what puts such peculiar
zest into the fight this year, and makes
every stage of the proceeding well
worth watching. It is too early yet
for the blare of trumpets and the
blooming of heavy artillery, but if you
listen closely you will hear the sharp
rattle of the skirmish line, and if you
handle your field glasses properly you
will see that the armies are unusually

6xist organized societies for the im
portation of their pauper and criminal
classes into America. Such laws as
we have on the subject are extremely
defective and larely enforced. Polish
and Russian Jews, Hungarians, the
lowest class of Germans, Austrians
and Italians are systematically im
ported by agents of the steamship
compauies who impose on their cre
dulity by glowing accounts of the op
portunities for profitable employment
here. When the agent lauds his fish
at Castle Garden he gets somethiug
like $2.20 per head as his pay. The
immigrant having nothing beyond the
few dollars requisite to pass the land
ing officials is given the option of
working for the Boss under contract
at from 20 to 50 cents a day or of be

This species of "protection" to the
American laborer will be worked for
all it is worth by the Democratic man
agers. It comes with peculiar force
at a time when the opposition are
wearing out their throats shouting
"free trade.' The beauties of the
great Republican system which makes
a workingman pay 2.00 for a 1.00
pair of shoes, aud allows the pauper
scum of Europe to come in duty free
and st up opposition to his labor on
a starvation basis, will be set forth
as strikingly as the Committee can
have it done.
Apropos of this cheap labor ques
tion, Banker Morton is catching it all
along the line for his attituds to the
American workman. Convicted by
the testimony of his own employes of
having brought them from Europe
to his great Rhicebeck estate under
coutraet, (in direct violation of the
law,) and held them down to a scale
of wagea 50 per cent, below the pre
vailing prices the prices paid to
American workmen by his own neigh
bors, there is no evading the issue
nor escaping its natural consequences.

The President returned from his
well earned four day vacation trip in
ample time to 6ign the joint resolu
tion extending the old appropriation
bills for thirty days longer, thus dis
appointing the republicans very much,
as they were Jl roady to raise a cry
of neglect of public duties. That is
one accusation i.hni no one can truth
fully make ajVxst Mr. Cleveland. It
i doubtful whether this country ever
had a President that attended as close
ly to his duties an Mr. Cleveland, wc
have certainly not had one since Lin
coln. Senator Beck has given notice that
he-will in the future Object to unani
mous consent being given for the
passage of any bill. He believes in
taking the bills as they stand upon
the calendar, and bringing them up
in the regular way.
It is now said that the republicans
of the Senate will not have their sub
stitute for the Mills bill ready before
the 20 th inst, if they do then. It ia
further said that they do not propose
to attempt to pass a bill at this ses
sion, but will only report it, so as to
give them a chance to gain votes this
fall, by promising to amend it beiore
it is passed, to suit anybody whose
vote can be had. JLhe slow and de

committee is acting, has gained many
believers for the report that no attempt
will be made to pass the bill.
