a statement of more importance than any

vastly ; important that they should know

Dear Sir : I have not thought it
necessary to answer your letter of the 8h nit.,
in reply to a copy of my letter addressed to the
lion. Postmaster Urneral relative to the ap
pointment of Thomas I?. lng as route agent on
the Western N. C. Kailroad, until lo-day. In
that letter you say,
" If your view of Thomas B.Long be correct,
the Republicans of Salisbury must be greatly
mistaken. The most earnest recommendation
of -MrLong, and a letter certifying his good
character, were sent to me by many leading
Republicans among them the following :

Anthony Bencini uiijht be indnced to
deny this statement, but George J. Long Is
made upwi h different material, and will at
any lime, I make no doubt, qualify to the truth
fulness of this statement. Thus ft will be per
ceived that Mr. Pool is capable of prostituting
the dignity of the State and his hih office for
the basest ilitical purposes. Need we be sur
