THOSE LEADERS INCONSISTENT.
The Hon. Thomas Settle
throws a shell into the Republi
can canrp in an open letter to
Hon. R Z Lhmey.
Besides showing! the fulility of
the course marked out by the
Republican delegation at States
ville ho shows that while the
Republicans are trying to scare
the unlearned white men with
the warning that they will be
disfranchised, there is absolutely
no danger of such thing except
through the efforts of these very
Republicans in defeating the
purpose of the Democrats.
And this is the true situation as
Mr. Settle says, the Democrats
have provided against this very
thing. Most good lawyers in
the State pronounce the grand
father cV.use constitutional and
all Democrats hope and believe it
will stand the test, it is positively
certain that if brought before
the Supreme court and . un
expectedly declared nul and void
it would have to be done through
the efforts oijjthese very; leading
Reyublicans that pretent to be
so exercised over the matter. It
see : us to be narrowed down to
this with the Republican leaders;
that if they can't prevent the
disf ranchi sement of a large class
of negroes that never should have
boen enfranchised, they will try
their best to disfranchise the
the white men. The fewer such
leaders the better.
THE GATTIS KILGO CASE.
Lower Court Decision Sustained Cse
Can Start at Bottom Again.
The decision by the supreme
court in the case of Gattisvs. Kilgo
and others was announced Tues
day confirming in modified form
the action of Superior court.
The Supreme Court sustains
the lower court in its decision
that the issue was improperly
joined but disagrees with that
court m dismissing the action.
The Rev. Mr. Gattis may now
begin action again in the lower
court but will have to make. sep
arate and specific complaint, as
we understand it, against Di.
Kilgo for language in the fa
mous Clark-Kilgo trial before the
board of Trinty college and
against Messrs. Duke and Odell,
and the representative of Mr.
Branson, for giving publicity
to these statements, or, in a way
not well understood by laymen,

GOOD FOR FILIPPIXOS, BAD FOR US
An election was held at Bacolo
on the Island of Negros on the
0th, antonamous government for
the island being pu tin operation.
Gen. Smith gives United States
supervision and guidance and
made the occasion one of feasting
and gladness to the natives.
But the point we started to
make is that the suffrage was re
stricted to those owning a cer
tain amount of property and
possessing the ability to read
and write. This is directed by a
Republican administration, but
here in North Carolina, where
we want to get rid of all the ig
norant and dangerous votes we
can find a practical way of elimi
nating, Mr. Pritchard, Mr.
Holton and some other Republi
can leaders get together and try
to make it appear very bad and
they attempt, too, to bring into
line against the amendments all
the unlettered white voters,
whom they try to make believe
the amendments will disfran
chise.' We are sorry, to impute
inconsistency and insincerity to
men of high position, but we
cannot help believing that they
are more zealous for party tri
umph than for the welfare of the
It certainly commends itself to
any reasoning mind that for self
preservation any goverment
should protect itself from an ig
norant vote large enough to be a
menace in the hands of the ill
designing. - It is surprising that those men
should pursue such a course when
they have a chance to divide
politics in the State by throwing
off this heaviest burden on the
Republican party in the South.
. The persou who stops to lis
ten to every idle rumor, bit of
gossip or slanderous tale, will
lose half the valuable time of
life. It is far better to go right
on and pay no attention what
ever to the idle people. In most
eases they are not believed by
people whose good opinion is
worth seeking,- and the gossip is
a dead weight for anyone to
carry. A correct life - does more
to rob slanderers of employment
than lawsuits or shot-guns, for if
the character is above reproach,
the truth may be more damaging
than falsehood. The busybody
is a moral fiction, for the body
busy has no time to eagage in a
work that bi:ngs such small re
turns. The most hear"'y de
spised person on earth is the
chronic disturber of human hap
piness, whether in home, church,
school or state, and so repre
hensible is the calling that no
one will own it; and its most per
sistent followers will deny it
with a vehemence worthy of a
better cause, and condemn it in
all others. Hence the propriety
of ingnoring all idle tales inten
ded to create strife and destroy
happiness and comfort. Or

Used By Brittish Soldiers in Africa.
Capt. C. G. Dennison is well known
all over Africa as command of the force
that captured the famous rebel Galishe.
Under date of Nov. 4, 1897, from Vry

bought a quantity of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy,
which I used myself when troubled with
bowel complaint, and had given to my
men, and in every case it proved most

the endorsement of the most
noted physicians of the country
as to its superiority over all
others. Read what the noted
Dr. John Hey Williams, of Ashe
ville, has to say for Harris
Asheville, N. 0.f April 24, 1893.
An extended clinical use of Har
ris Lithia Water prompts me to
the statement that I regard it as
one of the best if not the best,
Lithia Water known to the pro
fession. In the condition of
Phosphatic Urine, its action is
marvellous. Its use in the Rheu
matic and County Diseases afford
me more comfort than either the
Buffalo or Londonderry Waters.
Very truly yours,
JOHN HEY WILLIAMS, M. D.
