Two stage coactes bore all the travel between Hew York and Eos ton, Beef, pork, salt fish, potatoes, and hominy were the staple diet all the ye lr round. Buttons were scarce and expen sive, and the trousers were fastened with pegs or iaces. There were no manufacturers in this country and every housewife raised her own flax and made her own linen. The church collection was taken in a bag ut the end of a pole, with a bell atlacbedto rcuae the sleepy contributors.

Sometime ago the Standard clip ped an intervhw with Sir, Rand, published in the Raleigh News & Observer. Mr. Marion Battler de nied it and others believing him,' put in denials also. Mr. Etind felt called upon lo make a statement over bis own name. That letter appeared in the Raleigh rews or Tuesday, Hero it is : RAKD"iS Mills, N. C, Oct. G. Aa there has been, and is yet much conjecture as to where I stand politically, I will, if you will allow me space m your co'.unuij, explain in a manner there Ci:i b-j no quib bling about hereof cor. I confess I have been very much , lc33 since the coalition convention Li Raleigh to locate accurate!? tiv poiilicl whereabouts. As Tom Vatva vioald s-iy I did not know where I eus ;it, but as time pasicd by I gr-iv in wis dom and broadened in views until I came to realize that my psrty had slipped from its moorings and was threatening violence to the prir:ci pies it advocated at its inception and in whose defence, honestly raised my voice two year ago. A fusion wiih any party we had before arranging for iniq-aiLoua leg islation, my better judgement told me, was a political crime. I wta a Populist after the etraightest sect and had settled down in sincere con viction that the declaration of principles we had "thrown to the world were good enough, liberal enough and broad enough to cover the earth from pole to pole, and that the welfare of my country d manded f.ie formation of a new parly to enact them into a law; nrA I nujd hitve denounced in the strongest" terra ecaiitfea yriri atrf party, it matters not by what name yon might distinguish it. Aud I used all of my influence with u.y Populist friends to antagonize auy such baneful and unholy influences as it would have on the partv that we considered to all intents and pur poses the salt of the earth. I askel them to be orthodox or take down their banners. This course I con sidered honorable and the only one we could pursue to successfully meet argument in the coming cam paign. The fusion convention turned a Ueaf ear to every appeal of th-3 kind and voted it down, net taking into consideration at all the fact tL; t they were sounding the death kuell of the Populist party. R'ght at this juncui-e, sore and chagrined i 8 I was, a Philadelphia lawjtr, if s.?oru and put upon the stand, could not hare told where 1 stood in politics. And as retaliatory uieas ures and edicts are more or less justified by aws human and divine 1 say to my many friends who seem to be inquisitive about my political position, that I shall re3ent thi crying Injustice done my party by voting the Democra'ic party. The names Republican aud Pop ulist, by the action of the fusion convention, were made Bynonymons terms. What one implies, the other implies making either, or both re pulsive and uncongenial to the m ture of an intelligent, Southern born white man, viewing it from the standpoint. It is not neccessary to review the history of the two old parties, as all intelligent voters are familiar with them. By no means would I say their records have been ideal ones. However, I believe the Democratic pirty has sorely repented its folly in reducing the country to the gold standard. It has learned by sad ex perienci that mch lislation aug merited the troubles of which the country complains. Fusion in Iowa with the Democrats f psion in North Carolina with the Republicans, destroy the People's party with its prestige and leaves in its rake nothing but the vacuum it once occupied, and the more I me diate over it, the more intolerable it becomes. Vice and virtnre being incompatible, I shall vote the Demo cratic ticket. W. H. Rand. Fire at High Point, Wrena Bro's furnituie factory at High Point was consumed by f?re Tuesday night at 7;33.
