FRIDAY, NOYriMliMK 26, iSy;.
The principles of the Democratic
party are just as essential to go d
government today as they ever
were in the history of the counts1.
They stand for the riyhts of the
people against oppression m a-iy
form. The ie;-rd of the party in
North Carolina is one of hoinsi
and economi. al j,'ovri iiuiecit, sub
serving at all times the welfare
of the people. It has achieved a
reputation in which it takes just
pride, having accomplished for t:u
State a wo: k of momentous impor
tance. In 100S, with the illustrious
Vance at its head, the Democratic
party undertook the t'isk of restor
ing to a desolated and disheartened
people a government under which
they could repair their wasted
fori u nes.
How well this v.'jik was per
formed is known to every voter in
the St.ite. its effor ts order wa:.
brought out of ch.11,; pmspi-rit
displaced poverty; the inherent
right of sell -government was
restored; honesty and fidelity took
the place of spoliation ;,ii! plunder,
and a ne.v hope of honor and
progress sprung up in the hearts
of the people wheie had existed
or.ly humiliation and despair. The
recoid is clean and honorable, and
the successes of the Democratic
party fur many years were un
broken. During several years past, in
common with all sections of the
country, the people of this State
have felt the effects of a gen
eral business depression. Political
demagogues, with an insatiable
desire for self-aggrandizement and
a paucity of patriotism, took
advantage of existing conditions
and by misrepresentation and
deceit were enabled to place them
selves in positions of power and
Less than a year of this expen
sive experiment has convinced the
people of the unwisdom of
the change. The present State
administration has been character
ized by incompetency and mis
management. The leaders of the
combination which placed them in
power have betrayed the people
and consult only their personal
interests in the management of the
affairs of the State. Their selfish
ness has caused among them a
change from hobnobing for per
sonal gain to disgraceful quarrels
and ii reparable fractures f former
The people look on with indigna
tion and disgust, and it is even
now certain that a huge majority
would gladly embrace an oppor
tunity to restore Democratic con
trol. Naturally, in this State there is
a preponderance of Democratic
Voters, and a sentiment in favor of
returning to a pure and honest
government through the Demo
cratic party is rapidly growing and
We can hope for improvement
only by a straight-out Democratic
victory. The party should not be
hampered by a fusion or alliance
with any other political organiza
tion. We would welcome to our
ranks any accessions of voters who
will unite with us for the purpose
of obtaining a p miotic, efficient,
pure, honest and economical State
government, but we believe success
can be achieved under the banner
of the Democratic party, tree from
undesirable combinations with the
leaders of other parties. In the
national and State adminis
trations we intend to support
true and tried Democrats, whose
devotion to the principle of
the party has never wavered.
Such men can always be relied
upon to protect the interests of the
people and promote their welfare.

Trickling down the Atlantic

Seated on his dais in Banker
Benedict's yacht, Flunkey Bayard
s.vinging the incense vessel about
the head of the anointed one, the
"gray-eyed man of destiny" and
diversity of official prefixes de
r.lared that he wished to bestow
upon New Jersey the distinguished
horror of sending him, Grover the
Great, to the United States Senate.
And this is no wing-shot on the
part of the modern Nimrod. In
the event of Republican success in
New Jersey next year, Standard
Oil, the Sugar Trust, and the great
Eastern railroad combination will
control the votes of the legislature
of New Jersey, and can return

THAT OHIO SDX.VTOl! I A I. SIT I' AT I OX.
Fire Alarm Foraker and his
friends in the blessed State of
Ohio, where Republican legisla
tors are quoted in the marts of
trade much the same as cotton and
corn, beef and pork, or any old
thing that goes on sale in Barn
bury Cross, have once more reck
oned without their host. The
foxey Hanna permitted them
undisturbed to herd a cool half
doen Foraker followers and pub
licly to declare that they would
never, never, no never vote for the
money-changer who was so far
below the standard of Ohio politi
cal morality. Well, they stood up
for Foraker and Bushnell and
Kurtz, and declared that, as they
and the Democrats and the Inde
pendents, five of the latter having
been elected to misrepresent Cin
cinnati, formed a majority of one
in the Ohio legislature, they con
trolled the senatorial situation,
and consequently Ilanna's name
was Dennis which is Ohioese for
death. Did the downey Marcus
Aurelius shed tears and tear his
hair and rave about the frailty of
political promises? .Not on your
life insurance policy did he!
Marcus had been up against brace
games before, so he emulated the
"big pig" in the nursery rhyme
and went to market, and when he
returned he wore a smile and
brought within his frock coal
pocket a bill of sale of those five
Cincinnati Independents. And by
the same token, if those aforesaid
Independents knew their business,
they may hereafter be independent
in more senses than one they need
never toil again, nor yet spin, for
there is no limit to the game of
politics as played by the proprietor
of a president and the bountiful
dispenser of the combined "ex
pense account" of sundry trusts
and monopolies which need Marcus
'urelius Hanna in their business!
Alleged leaders may negotiate a
fusion, but the rank am! file will
have to confirm it. The rank and
file of Democracy is in no humor
to be trifled w ith. If the believers
in the Chicago platform are in a
m.-.j 'lily in North Carolina, then
let them stand up and be counted
like men as they will be if they
are faithful to rejuvenated Democ
racy. If t lie desire to give a few
nun positions and political promi
nence is stronget than their party
iaith, let them fuse with the
Middle-of-the-Roaders, the Repub
licans, the black and-tans, or anv
other class of men who come alon.
Bet them elevate the banner of
office seeking, beaiing the device:
"Give us office or we perish!"
But by all the traditions of the
past, don't, .:n't call them Demo
crats! No: content with having nearly
bankrupted the State in its finan
cial, moral and official standing,
the present incompetent and dis
graceful administration is now
looting the Capitol grounds at
Raleigh of its beautiful shade
trees. These young maples and
pyramid oaks were given to the
State by the late Senator Vance,
but the Russell Butler-Burns de-
spoilers are distributing them as
souvenirs among themselves and
other members of the political
combination. If any of the prop
erty of the State remains at the
close of this administration it will
probably be because it is immova
ble. Hurrah! The tidal wave of
prosperity has reached New Jersey
at last. Under the beneficent
operations of the Dingley tariff
bill, a Glassware Trust has been
formed and the price of glassware
has been forced up 15 per cent.
And the glassblowers wages?
Bother the glassblowers! They
didn't subscribe to the "cam
paign of education" fund, did
they? If they want more money
fur their labor because prices of
all they consume are going up, let
them do like the trust did make
terms with the " business man
ager " of the administration.
Col. Jack Chinn, of Kentucky,
announces his candidacy for Con
gress in the noted blue grass dis
trict, so long disgraced by go! i
washed Breckinridge. Col. Jack's
proneness to make a gun play upon
the slightest provocation and his
total disregard of the physical
well-being of those who cross or
vex him will rob the newspaper
paragraphers of one of the greatest
opportunities of recent times. As
it is, the temptation to call atten
tion to the fact that there already
exists a superabundance of chin
in the Cave of the Winds is too
strong to resist.
Tammany taught the country a
great lesson in the recent munici
pal election. It was the value of
organization. Now let the Demo
crats of North Carolina profit
by that lesson. Let every town
ship be the base of operations,
and have a club formed in each.
Those who take the initiative in
this method of organization need
only declare that the Chicago plat
form Democrats are about to be
organized and the results will
be pleasing, to say the least.
Dingley of Maine, who enjoys
the Nero like honor of being the
author of the present tariff law, is
in for a number of unpleasant half
hours when Tom Reed calls his
caged cubs together and removes
their muzzles and turns them loose
on an appropriation bone. Even
the caged cubs can see that there
is no meat on the bone in the light
of a Treasury deficit of $-.750,000
in August, $3,400,000 in Septem
ber, and $3,50,000 in October.
That self-constituted monetary
commission now in session in
Washington is getting up a series
of instructions for Congress with
respect to the proper solution of
the money question. Such is the
perversity of human nature it is
greatly to' be feared that there are
some rude, bold, cross Senators
who will say coarse and vuljar
things about the Algernons and
Cisseys and Willy Boys who are
preparing the instructions.
When Populist meant antag
onism to Cleveland, and Carlisle
ism, and Whitneyism, then the
term was proudly worn by hosts
of Democrats who despaired of a
resurrection of virtue in the party
they had left. But Democracy's
wholesome house-cleaning and self
purification has made it possible
for all Democrats to come under
the folds of its banner once more.
There was poetic justice in the
result in Maryland, but those who
figure on Arthur Pue Gorman's
retirement from politics are not
cognizant of the conditions in
Maryland. Bre'r Gorman, like
Bre'r Rabbit, he lay low, but Bre'r
Fox better watch his cabbage
Those negro aspirants fur office
out in Ohio are still in the attitude
of a nest of robins on the home

Before we permit ourselves to

who did not enter for prize. It will not be so this time, for
the plan is widely advertised and we have paid out within
the past twelvemonths NEARLY $5,000 CASH
upon the Five Missing Word Contests. The series has
been of extraordinary interest, and the idea seems to grow
in the public's favor.
The lxok containing the sentence is a standard publication and
hns been sealed np and placed with lr. W. A. Hemphill, President
and Itusiness Manager of The Constitution, who will hold it a!r!v
until January I, 189S.
The sentence speaks for itself and submits a very plain propor
tion for you to solve.
The Contest Began November 1, 1897.
The Contest Ends January 1, 1898.
This contest lasts two months and the amount to be divided will
probably be in the neighborhood of $ 2,000. There may be one cor
rect answer, there may be a dozen, there may lie more, but remem
ber it costs nothing tn supply a word, and you may get it correctly.
Whether you do or not, you get
