Some time ago cards were issued
to a great marriage ceremony in the
city of. Raleigh. The contracting
parties were Miss Mary Ann Butler,
of Goldsboro, and Mr. J C Pritch
ard, of North Carolina. The cere
mony wa3 performed by Major S
Otho Wilson, the Gideonite, assisted
by James II Young, the colored fu
sion candidate for the Legislature
from Wake, and of whom prominent
Republicans in the state (among
others Gov. Brogden, Dr. R M Nor
ment, W S O'B Robinson, C P
Lcck--y, Solicitor Wbite, the only
col'.ed Solicitor in the State, and
others) declared over their signas
tures in writing in 1893 was a man
of dirty character and unfit totruet.
They performed the ceremony in
graceful style m accordance with
the Fusion rites.
This happy couple is resting be
fore their contemplated bridal tour
to Washington. They will go, if
enough men like Mr. Ilileman, Mr.
Moody and Mr. Yuung are elected
to the Legislature.
It is certain that Mary Ann But
ler is the one, but she may get a
divorce from Pritchard and wed
another trader in case of an oppor
tunity. A person who woaJa mis
lead bis own followers and barter
them in an unholy alliance, would
not hesitato-a moment' to turn the
fSbles on Lis colleague in this trade.
Supposing that North Carolina
should be disgraced in the National
Senate by these two men; what could

THE COfeT OF. EIVISU.
The New York World publishes
tables which show the relative cost
of living nnder the McKinley and
the Democratic tariffs. The prices
quoted are taken from . market re
ports, and they prove that the neces
saries of life are from 10 to 25 per
cent, cheaper now than they were a
year ago. In other words, a family
can now buy for a dollar as much of
what it needs as it could for $1.10 or
or $1.25 under the Republican
tariff. It costs less now to bnild-a
house, less to furnish it, less to sup
ply it, lees to clothe parents i and
children, less to keep the - hearth-

the people from robbery and exor

who dictated the McKinley schedules

worth more no t than it was a year

Democratic Congress has repealed a
tariff law which " made the trusts

them to levy tribute from the peo

The Progressive Farmer pui lishes
a letter this week from John

letter is the letter of a politician;

that the reduction in price on China
is lCper cent, whereas the tariff was
reduced about'50 per cent. The re
duction is "only on the duty part of
the goods," he says. Very well. This
is all Senator Ransom said, that the
duty was a tax. Mr. Wanamaker
says that the reduction is "only on
the duty part of the goods." That
fatal admission destroys the effect
of the political claptrap of Wana
maker's letter. Raleigh Observer.
