Is a traitor to his State and a political

him, to lie defraaded ont of valued rights
and iutliests. If either of these proposi

Iu regard to railroad discriminations
against Charlotte,' the Observer, if it ever
reaches the bottom facts involved iu these
railroad questions, will find that it is a
light" between railroads to protect and
promote their owu interests as against each
other. 1 Neither the iuterest of Charlotte
nor any other town is allowed to-govern
the policy, of tho 1 roads in these fights
among themselves. Tlje pafplina Centra
or the Jpbarlotto . an4 Statesville, or any
of theuu will sacrifice what citizens o
Charlotte- may deem their interest the
moment they can do so and make money
by it. The whole study of railroad man
agers s not how they may build up this
- or that town, but l)pw the-, pap manage
their lines so as to make them pay. That
is the simple truth in regard to the West
ern N. b. Kailroad, atld it cau easily be
show'u to bo tho iolicy of them all ; and
this ' being so, it narrows dtiwu to 'this
i simple question j Ayho sli.ill govern the
railroai s iu the matter of schedules and
tariffs, he towns along their Hues or the
officers in charge of the roads T When
the railroads fall out and get' to' cutting
each others throats by reducing rates,
then it is fun ; for-shippers. When they
harmyjiize pn fates ami sche'd tiles mutu
ally profitable to themselves, it falls heav
ier on ijatrons and they cry out, for there
is then mj fun in it for them. It is one of
the evis of the railroad system for which
we'have nSt yet found a remedy.

between Hayes and Sherman. . The idea
advauced was to kill off John .Sherman

talked of, but was discarded in spite of a

argument against him was that, should he
be reelected he would "throw off1' on the
old rowd and endeavor to win the con
fidence of the couutrv ; that he would
feel jit necessary to separate himself from
all the influence that brought reproach
upon his former administration, and this
would leave the carpet-baggers out iu the

mend to all future Democratic couven
Hons not to adopt the two-thirds rule iu

This resolution was over sl-iughed by
a point of order.
