RALEIGH, N. C, FEBRUARY 12, 1898.
That the Democratic party is desperate
cannot be denied. That it will resort to
the most desperate expedients to regain
control of the State government and its
patronage cannot be doubted. And that,
if the Democrats ever get control 01 me
Legislature again, it is their settled pur
pose to perpetuate their lease of power
by disfranchising the negroes and illiter
ate whites, is not attempted to be denied
by the press and leaders of that party.
The following taken from the " Hay
seeder" shows that the Populists fully
understand the situation. It says:
On January 12th Louisiana held a
general election on the question of hold
ing a constitutional convention for the
purpose of so amending the constitution
that all negroes and ctjectionable whites
will be disfranchised.
Leading lights of the D. O. P. in thia
State no longer conceal their purpose to
effectually put a stop to the negroes vot
ing as soon as they again have the power
to do 80.
Less than two months ago we heard a
prominent member 01 tne uenerai as
sembly of 1893 say that he opposed such
a measure at tnat time, uui uuw no ew
it was the only way to effectually end
the trouble and that he would now vote
to end it. '
This nlan would tffectually disfran
chise about 100,000 negroes and 40,000
white men in North Carolina.

Hnw tn nrevont this scheme from
reaching its full fruition is a question
that should engage the earnest attention
of every liberty loving citizen.
Whatever is necessary to preserve lib

and a fair count, and will advocate co

It is better to bear the evils 5e have
than to fly to those ye know not of.
Some time back, while the appoint
ment of District Attorney for this dis
trict waa pending, the "News and Ob
server took occasion to say of C. M. Ber
nard, one of the applicants for the place
something belittling him in point of
ability. It also spoke in like manner of
Oscar J. SpeaTS, whose name was men
tioned as likely to be assistant in case of
the appointment of Bernard. The ap
pointment of Mr. Bernard has been made
and I understand Mr. Spears' appoint
ment is also assured. In writing this it
is my wish to sound a note of warning
to the violators of the law that they be
not misled by the "News and Observer"
and expect to escape easily from their
wrong-doing, and to the members of the
profession that they will find no mean
antagonists in the person of either of the
gentlemen, and it will be found that both
will prove able to maintain their side of
the question with dignity and respect.
cidal war of four years' duration, which
left the body politic well-nigh dead.
Again, under our amended Constitution,
Article XIV, section 1, we have:
" All persona born or naturalized in the
United States, and subject to the juris
diction thereof, are citizens of the United
States and of the State wherein they re
side. No Slate shall make or enforce any
law which shall abridge the privileges or
immunities of citizens of the United
States; nor shall any State deprive any
person of life, liberty, or property with
out due process of law; nor deny to any
person within its jurisdiction the equal
protection of the laws.
And wh ile Congressmen are d istribu ted
among the several Congressional dis
tricts, presumably in proportionto the
electors in each and their respective pop
ulation, still we see Representatives upon
the floor of this chamber from Missis
sippi, South Carolina and other Southern
Statea where the aggregate vote cast in
1896 ranges all the way from 5,000 to
11,000; while other districts in the North,
East, West, and some few of the South
ern Statea, had an aggregate vote Cost
anywhere from 30.000 to 50,000.
How long, Mr. Chairman, will this in
creased representation, brought about by
the disfranchisement of certain Amei i
can citizens, be permitted to go on unre
buked? Will the American Congress sit
supinely by and declare itd inability to
interfere and cantingly say that these
things are delegated to the respective
States, while our organic law, the Con
stitution of the United States, i3 being
openly violated ?
Once more: We have the sickening
spectacle of a few serious and very relig
ious " missionaries" (?) and a horde of
Shylock merchants visiting the Hawaiian
Islands, presumably to civilize and Chris
tianize the inhabitants thereof.
But instead of theae pious missionaries
these canting prelates and the honest
international commerce between the Uni
ted States and this small Government,
what do we behold ? The ruUng j ower
overthrown, the Quen bavish- d iu exile
in a foreign land, her property confis
cated, the natives overawed, and in many
instances murdered, and all tnis oone by
American citizens, and this great liov
ernment of ours standing by and seem
ing to say "amen." It reminds me very
much of the hypocritical merchant who
directed his clerks to sand the sugar, t j
pebble the coffee, and water the whis
key, then gravely said: "Come into the
house and let's pray." Last, but not least,
we have this commission about which
we have had 6uch a lengthy discussion,
creatf d by statute of the United Statea
Congress, but, in my opinion, in open
violation to our Constitution, daubed
with the misnomer of "civil service,"
and later matriculated as the "merit sys
tem," which, if permitted to go on in its
mad career with the same ratio it haa in
the last few years, will revolutionize the
eternal workings of our entire system.
I am loath to believe that it was ever
intended by the formers of this grat
Government that we should be besmirch
ed by any thing that would have the
smack of life tenure inheritance, or any
other way of acquiring an office except
through and by the people, who consti
tute the Government. If watchmen,
drivers, messengers, clerks, heads of di
visions, and every species of officials now
under the ample folds of this rubber
blanket concern, "the merit system," if
you please, can be protected by the neem
ingly innocent little statute of 1883, how
long will it be before this happy trio will
discover that this "horde of spoilsmen"
have not sufficient sense to elect th
President of the United States and our
American Congress, and take the whole
shout within its loving embrace?
air. Chairman, I think the time has
come for us to call a halt, fnd if we have
not the manliness to stand up and destroy
this measure before it ruins our body
politic, the electors of these United Stau a
will on the 8th of November next rise
and in their might and in their wrath,
and send men here who will do their bid
ding. Mark the prediction, and be gov
erned accordingly. Loud and prolonged
when asked why they are' not in school
they say they are waiting "till after
Christmas," which means that they will
be in school about half of the term. This
doesn't mean getting an education, but
going to school by snatches.

I have in mind another instance, of a
young man employed in this House some
few years ago. He went down and made
application for a position under the
' merit system," underwent an examina
tion and utterly failed. Afterwards he
was put on the rolls at $600 per annum
and was subsequently promoted from one
grade to another, from one place to an
other, until under the last Administra

I have said nothing in regard to the mat

theory say there is a curtailing of ex

Government, that it is purely a " merit
system." O, yes, "a merit system !" Yet
this appropriation bill, I believe, carries
$90,000, and by the time you get through

slimy boa constrictor, they are coiling
themselves around everything in sight,
and by the momentum of their gigantic
proportions they are seizing upon every

had conquered the world, wept when he
could find no more worlds to conquer, in
a little while we shall find them with
crocodile tears in their eyes because there
is nothing else to reform.
In the light of past t vents, it is difficult
for the thoughtful man not to be more or
less alarmed at the continual drifting
om the strong moorings to which our
Tamp of state has been so honorably at
tached. A condition of servitude to a
portion of our inhabitants was permitted
to remain for nearly two hundred and
forty years in the face of the specific let

that our people are aroused along educa

teacher it doesn't indicate so much. This

Major Douglass, in his letter to the
Colored American, sys many thinga
that the voters of the Second District of
North Carolina should know:
1. That a one term Congressman never
receives the recognition that other Con
gressmen gain wrii. are returned for sev
eral succu.-sive terms. It is gratifying
toknjw thai; the men who know a good
thing when they ee it are united in their
efforts at convincing the people of the
: importance ot saving white" remain
in Congress at lea-t until " 1904," if not
longer. Congressman White was a posi
tive force when lie was a menioer of the
State Senate, and we are sure that his
stay in the American Congress will stamp
him as the "truly Representative"' negro
on this continent. He is not anxious to
get away from those who hve elevated
him by the use of the elective franchise.
Mr. Douglass will further find that Mr.
White will not vote on any question until
he has given it mature thought. He, un
like ex Congressman Murray, who was a
free silver advocate, is a strong bi-metal-ist,
and, as such, i 1 e-irly spring will be
renominated, and in November as glori
ously elected; and this result will be
largely brought aoout by those who are
not expecting to teach Federal pie.
Dr. E. E. Smith, of Wayne, and Prof.
S. H. Vick, loth able and competent
men, are urging the renomination and
election of Mr. White.
Now if the beneficiaries in Washing
ton will show their race pride, and do as
the white man, come down in the dis
trict and give personal and substantial
aid, Mr. White will go back to Washing
ton for several trms. Our long range
advocates can help us return him if they
will. Mr. Douglass says the " negroes of
North Carolina have an opportunity for
race advanc; meot possessed by no other
State in the Union." Let us improve it,
and in the advancement of White, Young,
Dancey ard Cheatham the way will be
blazed for others
The Second means to do her duty along
the lines of race advancement and eleva
