RALEIGH, N. C, FEBRUARY 5, 1893.
The "Police Gazette," occasionally hon
ored with the name News and Observer,
and " Old Greasy," Bometimes mistaken
for Old Creecy who edits the Elizabeth
City Esquimaux," often misspelled
Economist, and other negro howling
sheets are horrow-stricken that the white
people of the State have to live under and
be governed by the fusion party. They
stigmatize this party as a set of incompe
tent, corrupt scoundrels, and under negro
dominion to such an extent that any one
coming in contact with it will be con
taminated with the vilest thief. Even
old " Greasy " advises the young white
men to leave the State if this party should
continue to control the State.
Let's see if these blatent, foul mouths
are honest in what they say and do?
Democratic pie suckers believe it. When
the co-operationist obtained control of
the State and its various institutions and
departments every position was held by
a Democrat and they held on with a
with a death like GRIP. Even where
they had to serve with and under this
fusion crowd, many of them remain in
office yet. They don't leave the State ;
they don't even leave the association or
refuse to serve under this so-called in
competent, disreputable crowd ; neither
does old Greasy advise them to take up
their " bed and walk." Then, look at
the collectors, marshalls, district attor
neys, and several postoffices in the State
in which Democrats have been in and are
still employed. The6e several offices are
and will be in charge of men selected
from the ranks of this fusion crowd.
Does it make these Democrats sick to
be with and work under this crowd ? Do
they want to get out ? No, they .stick
like leeches. The only howl you hear is
when they are kicked out. They seem
to "kinder" like their new bed-fellows
so long as they are permitted to
sleep with them. But when the f ueion
ists get above associating with them how
they do hate them. It is only a question
of pie with them. Any sensible man
knows if this fusion crowd is not fit to
to live under it is not fit to hold office
under. J ubt ask one of these Democratic
negro howlers if he is willing to live un
der the administration of this fusion
crowd and he will say no, as if itsulted.
Then just step 'round the corner and
meet him again and offer him an office
under them, and he will smilingly ac
cept. " Do these " mud slingers " advise these
men to get out ? not much ! If they
were honest and sincere in their rot, they
would so advise. In the eyes of thete
foul mouths it is all right for a Dem
ocrat to hold office with and under
these fusionists, but all wrong for a citi
zen to live under them.
"Greasy" and "Police Gazette," if
your position be correct, why not prove
your sincerity and honesty by advising
these Democratic officials to clean their
skirts by coming out from this " so-called
filthy crowd?" We will notify you now
that the voter in 1898 will look at things
as he sees them, not as he hears them
from low grade journalism.
In speaking of this, we wish to say,
there are several slick, greasy Democrats
snugly quartered in the Supreme Court
building and shame it be, that Judges
Faircloth, Furches, Douglas and Mont
gomery, put there by the cc-operationists
have not raised their hands to put them
out, and the greatest Bhame is, there are
hundreds of men in North Carolina qual
ified to fill these positions who helped to
put these Judges where they are at,
while these Democrats voted to keep them
We ask ourselves, have these Judges
a thimble full of gratitude ? With this
record staring him in the face, did Judge
Douglas think he would be made Judge
of the Western District, with its various
positions to fill ? j.
IT IS SOW COLLECTOR DUXCAN.
On last Tuesday, the first of February,
Hon. E. C. Duncan took the oath of office
of Collector of Internal Revenue for the
Fourth District of North Carolina. That
Mr. Duncan will make an acceptable
Collector in all respects goes without
. "ying. His first act was to appoint Mr.
- v viuukc. an ilia
Chief Deputy, which gives universal sat
isfaction. He also appointed Mr. O. H.
Dockery, Jr., Cashier; Messrs. J. R. Joyce
and J. V. Riggsbee, Stamp Deputies at
Reidsville and Durham respectively, and
Mr. W. J. Latham, Messenger in his
office. These appointments are also sat
isfactory to the Republicans. This was
as far as the Civil Service Rules would
permit him to go at this time. The Col
lector then re commissioned for thirty
days the former Clerks and Deputies of
ex-Collector Simmons as the wisest thing
to do under the circumstances. If he
had removed these officers he would have
had to fill their places from the Civil Ser
vice eligible list, and as his party friends
were not on that list he would not have
been as well off as he is now, as the men
from that list would have been inexpe
rienced. Where there was no Civil Service
Rules he made a clean sweep. The Demo
crats temporarily re-appointed by him
are excellent gentlemen and their only
fault i that they are Democrats.
CONGRESSMAN WHITE SPEAKS
AGAINST THE CIYIL SERVICE LAW.
(Congressional Record, Jan. 12, 1898.)
Mr. Chairman: I hope that in the re
marks I am about to make I shall not be
regarded as a pessimist nor as one hold
ing to traditions that are in the way of a
more enlightened civilization. But there
are certain tendencies, there are certain
innovations, not only upon the statute
of this great Republic of ours, but upon
the unwritten law, the universal customs
that have existed from the very organi
zation of this Government, that challenge
I have been somewhat amused and
yet the question is too serious to be made
a matter of jest over remarks of certain
gentlemen here, taking the position that
those who dare to question the present
administration of this Civil Service law
are "spoilsmen" ard are violating one of
the cardinal principle of our platform.
If the gentlemen have never learned it
within the pale of the Republican party,
they certainly ought to have learned it
before now from our Democratic friends,
that party platforu.s are like the platform
of a railroad car they are made to get
in rather than stand on. Laughter and
applause. If we are g'jing to stick
cloi-ely in letter and spirit to one part of
our platform, why not stand upon the
whole concern? If it is a violation of a
party Llaifonn to stand upon the floor of
this House and advocate the modification
of a law that has been more abused than
any other law, I venture to say, that has
ever btea upon the statute books, then
why not btand upon that other plank ia
which we declared that we would extend
aid to Cuban sufferers? Applause.
For years we have beea receiving the
accounts of outrage after outrage on that
Inland; we have heard of the sufferingsj
01 cnose people irotu gaunt iiuugeriut
years there have been coming over to us
the cry, " Help us ! Relieve our distrc sV
But instead ot relieving those poor suf
ferers, every little barge that has started
across the tea to take some provisions or
shotguns or a round of cartridges have
been run down by the revenue cutters of
our Government. Those struggling peo
ple have received from us virtually no
support. Applause. I would ask gen
tlemen who stand up nere ana neraia in
their places that we are in rebellion
agaiost the platform of our party, are
you not, by jour very silence, in rebellion
against another plaDk of that platform?
Applause. L t us be ccmintent. Let
us, as representatives of 70,000 human
beings, have the manhood to stand up
here and take this incubus by the throat,
modify it if we can, and if we can not
modify it on our own side of the House,
I say I will join hands with my Demo
cratic friends and put it out of exist nee
entirely. Applause on the floor arid the
The Chairman: The visitors in the gal
leries will refrain from demonstrations of
approval or disapproval. Cries of "Oh!"
Mr. White of North Carolina: Mr.
Chairman, frequent reference has been
made to the constitutionality of this law.
I make no profts-ion to be a great con
stitutional lawyer, but I think the great
character of Charles Dickens, "The Art
ful Dodger," if he had been present dur
ing the debate in this House and heard
the evasive arguments that have been
put forth with regard to the constitu
tionality of this law, would have been
driven away in shame because of his ina
bility to cope with these gentlemen.
Who has the appointing power? The
President, with trie advice and consent of
the Senate, and the heads the Depart
ments, to whom, with respect to certain
officers, the appointing power may be
delegated. Where is the letter of the law,
where is the construction that can be put?
upon the law, that will give to three
gentlemen, known as the Civil Service
Commit-sioners, the authority to make
these appointments? But I suppose that
gentlemen's arguments and couociences,
in dealing with this Civil Service law,
are as elastic as the law itself, which is
so rubberlike that it seems they can pull
it about to make it fit anything they de
sire. But, gentlemen, my opinion is that the
appointing power rests only where the
Constitution has vested it where it has
resided during all these years, and where
it should rest to day. The only trouble is
that we have never been able to get this
law into court. I believe the President
himself is the only one who has the power
to secure a judicial test of it, and he has
never done it. Its elaticity is such as to
make it a supple tool in the hands of any
partisan. Tain about "merit;" talk about
"spoilsmen." If there ever was anything
that might be forcibly designated as a
"spoils system," it is the present admin
istration of the Civil Strv.ce law in the
United States. Applause. A law that
at one fell swoop, without regard to
merit, without regard to fiuies-, pulls its
ample india-rubber folds over 43,000 men
and women in one day is a bad thing for
any republican form of government.
Now, Mr. Chairman, I would be glad
to safe the law nidified, if possible. My
views in reference to the commission re
mind me of a little incident which oc
curred when I was a boy down in my
native Southland. It so freely and forci
bly illustrates the point as to the commis
sion itself that I will tell it. with your
permission. One Sunday I went to
church. It was a little slab church in an
oak thicket. I got in and I heard the
praying. He prayed honestly and fer
vently. He broke forth in all the elo
quence of his soul, "O Lord have mercy
upon sinners. O Lord, wilt thou curtail
the devil in his mad career." A good old
deacon over in the corner 88id: "Yes,
good Loid, cut his tail clean off." Laugh
ter. It I had my way with this commission
I would modify the law so as to establish
a bureau in every Department for the
purpose of examining in o the fitness of
each applicant for office, because the
head of a Department knows better than
the commission can know the character
of the work done in the Department.
Yes, I would do as the good old preacher
said I would not only cut off the tail of
this con rniHsion completely, but I would
cut it oil close behind its ears. Laugh
ter Mr. Chairman, it is needless for me to
ULtteitake to enter into any individual
instances of the abuses of this law. They
have been so elaborately explained that
it would be folly to attempt, in the few
moments accorded to me, to enter into
an extended discussion as to that.
The Chairman The time of the cen-
tleman has expired.
Mr. White, of North Carolina I should
like about seven minutes more.
Mr. Mahany I ask that his time be
Mr. Pearson I trust that the commit
tee will grant this request, and I ask that
the gentleman's time be extended ten
There was no objection.
Mr. White, of North Carolina I have
heard gentlemen claiming to represent
the " merit system" twit us, refer to us
in derision as " spoilsmen," and say that
we would bolster up our chances for a
return to Congress by giving out the
patronage of this great governn ent of
our to a hungry horde of office seekers.
I imagine the gentlemen felt a little hun
gry themselves, s evidenced by their
presence on this floor. I imagine, ah-o,
that if they lived in the district of North
Carolina that I have the honor to repre
sent here, if they continued to hold the
views which they now express and to say
that when we have won an honest vic
tory their friends are not entitled to the
emoluments that naturally ought to fol
low if they should express such views
as these in the Second district of North
Carolina, after next November they
would have the opportunity of joining
John Howard Payne in singing "Home,
Sweet Home," for the place that know
them here now would know them no
more forever. Laughter
But these gentlemen are like Hudi
bras "And prove their doctrines orthodox'
By apostolic blows and knocks.
Compound for sins they are inclined to
By damning those they have no mind
They say the very facts that we in
stance as reasons why this law should be
modified or amended simply show that
the law is all right, but that the practices
which have grown up under it are the
only thing that are wrong. Well, a law
that permits of such pernicious practices
as we have seen certainly needs some at
tention. I want to say to gentlemen here, as I
have but little time, that unless, in my
opinion, you join with those who are here
as true civil-service reformers and aid us
in throwing proper safeguards around
this law, so that it may subserve the in
terest of this great American people of
ours, the next Congress that convenes
here will do that piece of work for you,
and you will stay home. I do not hon
estly believe there is 1 per cent of the
voting population of North Carolina that
approves of the law as it stands and as it
is administered to-day. Then we must
choose between these evils. Here is a
choice left to you. I urge you to join
hands with us, because we are the true
We are the ones who would perpetuate
some form of civil service. We are the
ones who believe in merit, but also be
lieve, or I do at least, and I proclaim it
as my doctrine, that to the victors belong
the spoils; or, in language a little more
primitive, 11 you please, the ox that pulls
the plow ought to have a chance to eat
the fodder. Laughter.
Now, Mr. Chairman, I insist that this
law should be modified, and modified
radically, but if we cannot get all that
we desire, we are willing to suppress
some of our wishes, we are willing to
meet you half way, and we ask you, gen
tlemen, if you would have this law ex
tended, if you would have it continued,
if you would have it operative, if you
would have this reform go on, if you
would live up to the principles of your
party platform that you have spoken of,
theu join hands with us who are here ad
vocating that proper safeguards be
thrown around it and the end will be ac
complished. Refuse to do it, and the
other side will do it for you in a very
Mr. Chairman, I have in mind two in
stances that occurred this week under
my own observation. There was a young
man who was famous for ballot-box
etufriiig down in the Second district of
Noith Carolina, who came up to Wash
ington under the last administration un
der the extension of the merit syt-tem, if
you please, and applied to the Interior
Department for a place. He was put in,
and the record was written after his
name, "Poor; a Democrat," and under
the civil service. There was no exam
ination; the civil service was pulled over
him after he got in. I found he was sal
aried at $GG0 per annum.
I went down there yesterday, and I
said to one of the officials: "I desire this
place. It is not under the civil service.
My man can sweep the fl ,ors and clean
the cuspidors as nicely as this fellow.
My friends have never been guilty of
violation of law. They have never
stuffed ballot-boxes. They have never
suppressed the votes of American citi
zens. I want this place " I was shown
the records and informed that it was un
der the civil service and the appointment
clerk of the Interior Department being a
Democrat I could not get my friend into
this place, and that, too, under a Repub
lican administration. This man is there
drawing $060 a year cleaning cuspidors,
cleaning doors, and dusting desks under
the civil service.
I suppose the examination was some
thing like that dtscribed by my friend
from New Hampshire Mr. Sulloway
yetterday. I suppose he belonged to
that class of gentlemen who have to un
dergo these great scholastic tests. I sup
pose he belongs to that class of gentle
men who have to be twenty -five years of
age before they can &t in, and w ho can
not get in after becoming forty five years
of age, in order to grind a knife on a
Scotland Neck, N. C, Jan. 8, "98.
To the Editor of the Gazette, Raleigh
Dear Sir: Please allow spice in yrur
valuable paper for the proceedings of the
Emancipation Proclamation Celtbration
held by the colored people of this com
munity and town on Friday, January 7,
I must state in the outset that owing
to some very grave inconveniences fa
great many of our people who wished to
be present and help to start the grand
work to moving, we postponed the cele
bration from the proper day, January
1st, to January 7th, hence you can see
that we were so anxious to make a start
in this good work, which has been en
tirely neglected by our people in this tec
tion, we went in at a very late hour.
However we received good pay. The
meeting took place in Shiloh Baptist
Hall, which was packed from corner to
corner with womtn, children and the
leading men from every section of the
community at one a'clock in the after
noon. The vice-president, Mr. C. C. Baker,
called the meeting to order, and in a few
brief remarks stated the cause of the
meeting. A divine blessing was invoked
by the chaplain, Rev. A. F. Rollins, after
which the programme for the day was
Strong espays to suit the occasion were
heard by Misses Carrie R. Smith, Char
lotte Baker; poem, Mis Agnes Little;
Miss Lena Smith read the Emancipation
Proclamation; solo that fitted the occa
sion was sang by Miss Hattie L. Turner.
Stiong speeches were made by Messrs. T.
Shield, John L. C. Baker and C. C. Ba
ker, after which the Hon. John H. Han
non, of Washington, D. C, the orator of
the day, was called to the rostrum. As
he walked upon the rostrum he was
greeted with strong and continual cheers
He, in words of eloquence, in a profound
and plain way, held the audience spell
bound for an hour and a half. He dis
cussed the disasters and the rapid prog
ress of the race from 1863 to the present
time. He told them their duties to each
other. He told them what they had to
do to build up their race, etc. He made
a favorable impression upon the people.
He carried with him the sympathy of his
many friends of this community. Come
again brother Hannon, we need you in
the county, and must have you with us.
Select reading by Miss L. E. Evans.
Speeches were made by Prof. G. T. Hill
and manager C. P. Anthony, after which
we organized for the ensuing year.
We shall strive to carry this grand
cause onward. Please excuse our late
appearance. Yours for the cause,
Rev. T. J. Johnson, Pres.

We return many thanks to Congress
man White for public documents. In
them we find one of his speeches in the
House of Representatives on January 11,
1898, on the modification of the Civil
Service law. The speech is a superb one
and unvails the many wrongs perpetrated
by this nefarious law. Mr. White, after
quoting the Constitution of the United
States, article 14, relative to the suffrage
of all men, he said: "and while Congress
men are distributed among the several
Congressional districts, presumably in
proportion to the eltctors in each and
their respective population, still we see
Representatives upon the floor of this
chamber from Mississippi, South Caro
lina and other Southern States where the
aggregate vote cast in 1896 ranges from
5 to 11 thousand; while other districts in
theSNorth, West and East and some few
Southern States had an aggiegate vote
cast anywhere from 30 to 50 thousand.
How long," said, "will this increased
n presentation, brought ab out by the dis
franchisment of certain American citi
zens, be permitted to go on unrebuked?
Will the American Congress sit supinely
by and declare its inability to interfere
and cantingly say that these things are
delegated to the respective States, while
our organic law, the Constitution of the
United States, is being openly violated?''
In this part of his speech is food for eveiy
liberty-loving negro of North Carolina.
When we reflect for a moment and see
the butchery going on in th ; South 111 the
way of disfranchising the negro, we
should as a race declare against any
party or leader of a party who favors
such a law in North Carolina. Just so
