Major Guthrie told the negroes
last Saturday to cultivate friendly
relations with their white neigh
bors and vote with them, but to
watch both the old parties. Said
he : "They will sell us out into
slavery worse than the slavery be
fore the war." What condition
could the old parties put the ne
groes aud the Populists into that
the masses of those old parties
would not themselves be in ? We
would like to know. By the way,
if there is to be any buying and
selling Mr. Guthrie's party seems to
be the only element on the market.
It is an open secret that the Popu
list leaders havp stood ready to fuse
with either one of the old parties
and the only delay was for the high,
est bid in the sharing of candidates
on the ticket. The Populists in the
main are as Mr. Watson said last
Saturday the element of the Darao
cratic party that got out of heart
and left us just when we needed
them most. Now they stand alooof
from us-while they agree with us
on more essentials than they can
get anywhere else and it is but
natural that we would like to have
them with us, and we are happy to
say many of them are stepping
across the line in that manly digni
fied manner of following their con
victions and would spurn the idea
of purchase in any form.
We trunk Mr. Guthrie made a
dismal failure Saturday when he
raised the expectation of our
Populist friends sky high with
his proposal to read the record
against Mr. Watson about the Alli
ance business. The record did not
have one word of bearing against
Mr. Wratson, and only gave him a
good chance to show that he had
done all he was asked to do by Ma
rion Butler, Robert Vance and other
leading Alliance men. If the fol
lies of the leaders proved detrimen
tal to the Alliance, shame on a man
that will try to lay the blame on
him, who helped them to get what
I they thought was for their ad van -I
tage. In this little thing we think

CONCORD, SEPT., II, 1896.
Till: MTl Vll(h.
The discussions during last week
were c. V'.it ell that the public mind
could Yfcii take in. The hearing
was unusual! good and free from
disturbances, while the enthusiasm
was quite as much as intelligent
voters usually display. The speeches
were in a great degree courteous
and unprovoking. It is a campaign
peculiarly complicated in minor
relationy, with sharp lines only on
the one grand issue of finance.
This has assumed such proportions
as to justify electoral fusion in the
minds of many whose superior
knowledge, political sagacity, and
unquestioned patriotism make us
who denounced fusion two years
ago and would have spurned such a
proposition, now Btandjaghast and
wonder what next. While we have
a feeling of gladness that the spirit
of our opponents is not exasperating
there is much that should not go
unnoticed that Mr. Wataorl could
Tne speech Saturday night by
Mr. Watson was one of unusual
vehemence and power. v,"c only
wish that Mr. Pritchard would give
him a chance to show up hi3 errors
and gauzy theories of last Thurs- j
day night. If there is a tendency
among our mill men, as we have
heard, to accept Mr. Pnlchard'a
statements as conclusive in favor of
KcKinleyism, we beg that they sua
pend their judgment for due con1
sideration before they pledge their
votes to McKmlev.
