Cuba is not ;;i'h'd because the

Hawaii is not yet annexed becatis'
these same money lords are stiil
in doubt as to whether they wish
this country to enter upon an ex
periment in foreign colonial
aggression. And the Republican
administration, which owes its
accession to power to the money
lords, awaits word from Europe as
to how and when it shall carry out
measures to which it is distinctly
pledged, and which the people
had supposed would have been
adopted some months since. The
carnage, suffering, outrages, and
starvation in Cuba do not count.
The imbecile Spanish monarchy
must be supported le.,t the bond
holders lose their investment in
the tyrannical and coirupt mis

I'ut there is one thing the money
lords fear. It is the indignation
of the American people. Were
their thrones and privileges in
Europe secure from popular over
throw, they would dare even war
with this country and seek to
crush forever the aspirations for
the political rights of man. l!ut
their thrones and power rest solely
on bayonets. The people are not
with them, either here or in
Europe. Hence, jugglery, delay,
finesse, promises, false issues, and
all the other delusions by which
the masses are k'-pt under control
of seifish and narrow rule, and our
government is degraded in the
eyes of mankind bj its subservi
ency to the p. nver of capital,
intrenched in monarchical institu
tions, and relying upon armies
and armaments to protect it from
popular supei vision and check.
I'eihaps the money lords will at
last allow the Republican admin
istration to make an effort to
redeem its pledges. If so, it will
be tine solely to the persistence of
the American pi ess and the gt ner

A straight party fight in North
Carolina means one of two things,
either that a majority of the suf
fragants of the State are in favor
of the principles all the princi
ples, mind .You of the Chicago
platform, or that they aie opposed
to those principles. Twist it and
turn it whichever way you may,
there is no escape from the truth
of that postulate. True enough,
there are many indifferent ones
who arc moved by fear of negro
domination to actually engage in
political woik when they fear
negro control of State government,
but even the indifferent, i nes are
opposed to the Republican parly
for other reasons than that that
party enfolds the negro in willing
So, accepting as granted our in
itial postulate, whether Democrats
or Republicans sr shall rule the
State is of importance only as in
volving the fear of the negio. The
principles of the Chicago platform
are at stake.

is not the proper candidate at this

The free pass business has be
come ridiculous and scandalous
in some respects. When a railroad
gives a pass to an editor in ex
change for advertising space in
his paper the editor's pass is then
paid for, and is not free. This is
a business transaction that con
cerns only the editor and the road.
But when public officials, as Butler.
Russell, Worth, and some others,
w ho are allowed mileage for travel
ing, and still are given and use
free passes on the railroads, it
becomes a scandalous evil and
should be stopped. Public serv
ants should do nothing to raise a
suspicion upon the right discharge
of public duties. This latter phase
of the business is becoming malo
dorous. Let such a pass business
pass away, and the officials so
offending pass out of ofiice.
Since Butler has said (and it has
been proved that he said it in a
speech at Rocky Mount) that if
colored men would not commit
the crime of rape often enough
some white men would hire them
to do so, he ought in self-respect,
or for the honor and dignity of
the position he holds, resign his
seat in the U. S. Senate. As the
Asheville Citi,ai says, to resign is
the proper thing for him to do.

hire colored men to commit such
a crime that the white men miv

recommend it. Very truly vours,
1 1 ay rue L. Haiues.
In all cases of nervous prostra
tiou, nervous indigestiou, neural
gia, sleeplessuess, hysteria or inces
sant headache, the objective point
of a true remedy like Paiue's Cel
ery Compouud is to make more
blood, gather flesh and increase
the number of red, health giving
corpuscles in the blood.
Paiue's Ctlery Compound fills
the vessels with red blood, drives
out the dangerous humors aud thus
gives relief to a host of aches,
pains aud weaknesses.
Women and men who have lost
flesh and grown colorless aud are
subject to aches and pains, gain
quickly in health from Paine's Cel
ery Compound. There is hardly a
family of any size where there is
not some member who is feeble,
forever tired and below the stand
ard of health to whom Paiue's Cel
ery Compound would prove of
invaluable help. Not only does
this great invigorator drive out
the aches and distress that have
accumulated because of neglected
rheumatism or neuralgia, but the
libeial gam in llesh and blood that
is always a noticeable and encour
aging result of its use, bring about
better health in the digestive,
