ia he said that "there is net so
ach principle involved in who

U with reference to tbe eleo
toral ticket." In a nutshell the
Doint was that the Populist com
miffRThad decided on a line of ac
tion. to: get tbe 11 electoral votes
and let the matter of the Governor
eo by the board, permitting; the Re
publican wing of the fusion party

whether a non-partisan - elector
tickat would suit, pledged to vote
only for silver. One of these circu

quested, with his yiews as to the
policy, but bus printed it and also a
letter of his own, in which be scores
The last meeting of the Populist
State committee was in this city
during fair week, last Oc ober,
There was a large attendance. Just
before this Senator Pritchard and
(Jon crewman Pearson had made
speeches in which thoy announced
t there would -be fusion or ropu
and 'Republicans in this State
asisof an equal division of
electors. At the committee meeting
this statement by these Republicans
was discussed in quite a heated style.
At that meeting trie only thing die
cussed was the electoral ticket, and
this was brought about by the
speeches above alluded to. The ex
ecutive committee was aware that
' -these two Republicans had written
j to Butler, and felt somewhat insalt-
r ed that after tneii writing to mm
-nd before hia reply came they
should make such declaration.
The committee directed Chairman
Butler to iif orm them that they were
"too previous, and that the com
mittee must be consulted before any
action whatever could be taken. This
lets much light in on the case.
So Wood's circular exposing But
ler's, has caused a great row. S Otho
Wilson, Populist leader, has gone to
see Wood. The circular, etc., has
precipitated many things. It hn
made a meeting of the Populist com
mittee imperative. Senator Hutler.it
is alleged, has already call3d this. It
has endangered tbe very existence
of the Populist party. Butler's cir
cular was Bent to some 800 Populist
chairmen. Those who reply are
to oppose fusion with the Re

wing of the Republican party, to de
Hoi ton for Republican
chairmanship and to defeat Con
gressman Settle's re-nomination, and
that in return for this Russell and
Mott are to give Butler what he most
desires, and what is of the least value
to the people of this feta'e the 11
electoral yotes for the Populist can
didate for the presidency, who can
not possible be elected. It is farther
alleged that Congressman Skinner is
with Russell, in order-to Becure his
own renominatioo, his district (the
first) being Republican ixyond
It will be noted that Butler's cir
cular says "at a recent meeting,"
when no meeting has been fce'd since
October. The so-called recent com
mittee meeting must have been' held,
it is alleged, at .Washington, and at-
by Butler and Skinner, Ibis
hat is intimated plainly. Wood
says it is an attempt at dictation. It
is sure that if this matter of the
gubernatorial nomination, which
Butler characterizes as of minor im
portance, had been before tbe Octob
er meeting of the committee a fear-
ul row would baye been raised. Ihe
committee then merely directed that
Pritchard and Pearson be notiGed, ae
stated, and it did not authorize the
issuing of any circulars by butler.
Secretary Ayer, of the Jfopuiist
tats executive committee, says, re
ading Wood's reply to Senator
ler: "I cannot HI what the
will be. I do not know how
people or who got Wood', eir
ouot. Tbe KepuDltcans may elect
a Goyernor, but certainly not by
Populist votes unless they make the
pledges demanded by the State oil
ver convection," namely, to support
only silver men. I don't know Rns

Republicans outsiqe ef the'machine,'
is ready to ioin on this issue,

ont yet fo a commit
last October it was decided that we
never could defend the policy -of
leaguemg with the Republicans on
the State ticket, for how could we
answer a charge that we were aiding
men who adhered to the Republican
national policy f Why, we won la be
in as deep a .hole as if we had a split
electoral ticket. As to the electoral
fusion ticket, it is an open question
in this way : the Republicans muBt
put up men pledged to vote for no
man who layers the gold standard.
If a Democrat is put up on that
platform we will vote for him This
is our committee s idea. I think It
will prevail by a large majority."
The Winston Republican, the 'of
ficial or the Republican party in
this State, threw another fire-brand
among the Populists today by saying

Anywhere you go, you hear peo
pie say that Salisbury is not much
of a place for its opportunities.
That's not so; it's a big slander.
Salisbury is a big town for its
chances; it's a town that haa not
only held its own, but made a credits
able march progressively alongside
of that of other towns, even though
many of her citizens lost heavily in
the boom towns of Virginia and
some of them went so far as to "hit
the ceiling," and are still "hit."
oome years ago wnen we were
much purer than now, we knew
man who liyed several miles east of

one of these fits of righteous rage he
Bwore: "I'm disgusted; I'm mad;
I'm going to leaye this unholy neigh
borhood ; I m going out of the State
I'm going to move to Salisbury,
so what I am." He did : for on ths
streets of Salisbury last Tuesday I
saw mm ; he saw me and told me
he liked his neighbors in the new
State. But just wny a man uses so
much unnecessary clotb in his
breeches until they bag at the end,
in the centre and everywhere, is a
question that has often puzzled us.
But to return : Stanly county is
plucky. She is paying interest on
the court house bonds of $10,000 ;
on the new jail bonds of $5,300 ; on
the railroad bonds of $100,000, In
all in addition to the usual tax for
county, State and sobool purposes,
Stanly county pays tax to meet tbe
interest on $115,300 worth of bonds.
But tbese are great people. They
have a road, a good court hoime and
a mot excellent jail.
After you leave Salisbury ten
miles, you find either sioe of the
railroad lined with stacks of cross
ties, The inspector is now along
the line. This means much money
soon for the country. Mr. S H
Hearne tells me that there are along
the road some 60,000 cross ties. The
best are worth 30 cents ; the next
best 15 cents they will average 27
cents around, or for tbe lot $16,500.
