THAT. PORT WORTH MEETING.
Dispsllches liuve been .flying all over
the conn try since last Saturday telling
of t he great things 'dune by Hull, of
Missouri, 1 McAllister, of Mississippi,
;.nd Sargenl, of Texas. About two
hundred ulliancemen were present, but
only three of them (named above)
were -lackers, .They resolved nnd
Vhereiised to a considerable extent, nndl
managed to get ojl a loj. 6i lie;. They
appointed-themselves a "committee of
dive". to air:mfi for another meeting
of soreheads tbis fall. '
In the first section they claim that
. they bine rebelled -on account of thel
sub-Treasury, laud oaii scheme and
the govern mental own'erslnp of rail
roads. The governmental ownership
of railroads was changed to "govern
mental control" at the 6caTa conven
tion, but Hall and his crew ignore the
fact. ' ' '
: Tt seems to. us4hat the most sensible
course tor himjind bis chums to pur
sue woirld have, been to withdraw from
the Alliance when they found some
thing they-could not swallow. But in
stead they proceed to try to burst up the
crgauizatioiHtisl like cranks will do.
The second section is for "debarring
jiersons from membership arid office for
opinion's sake:"' No doubr Brother
Hall is kicking on account of that very
section. He has wanted a position in
tjie Alliance, but there were, better
pien, or men known to be consistent,
and heot left. This, no doubt, ex
jbiins,lis conduct, '
- Again they charge that the leaders
have directed the attention of the
farmers from' the tariff issue to doubt
ful class legislation. This is. untrue,
also. A majority of-our people nrefkopes in- getting the road? If Salis-
earnest 1 li their wishes for tariff reform.

maims is as ioiiows: - we demand the
removal of the heavy tariff tax on thei
the necessaries of life which the poor
of "our land are bound to have,"
The whole set of resolutions are
chaiji of falsehoods from beginning to
end.' We have no patience with such
men or their 'actions. -They are not

WHERE WILL IT END.
"There is ' nothing " so conducive , to
meeesp, as interest ; and determination.
Well has it been said, thaHdessed is that
man, who has found his calling and is pur
suing it. This may nppry with equal
force to towns and cities. Some towns
seem'tobe dead and heedless of all pro
gress or advancement in any Hire what
ever. Why? Simply because the- in
habitants have na pride for- their iTome
and possess 110 interest for it welfare.
Such men are well termed "fogies,"
whose highest aim iu life is to suck the life
bloodlfrwm everythinj; within Uieir
reach, and leave the carcass for the future
generations t6 mourn' over. How is it
with Tarboro?' Let tis sec. Several
years ago, the town did look dead. Her;
inhabitants seemea to be laying imcK
on tneiri spoils, vnue uib ,uy
world all around them, was spinning on
and expanding each moment in to greater
and grander things." "
IS ot so now, Tarboro is lull anreast
with the times, and outstriping her sister
towns in more way than one.
Her present industries tej.l the tale of
progress and show ft dcterminatiod 'ori
tbc part of her citizens to succeed. The'
people of Tarboro have become greatly
interested in themselves and what they
are doing. They are vain enough to say,
they have great advantages.possessed by
few' towns" in the State.
We shall iust here refer to one product,
that is destined to place her right in the
forefront, almost . without a- warning.
We refer to our tobacco interest. At
the present Edgecombe could hardly be
termed a regular toboacco county, be
cause as yet she has not pulled from the
pressure of the cotton plant. But suffi
cient evidence can be obtained" to prove
that henceforth she will be a tobacco
county -and pne of the first type too.
Edgecombe has been 'termed the greatest
of the cottou counties, and it seems that
very soon she will hold this reputation
as to tobacco. And Tarboro is not be
hind w ith this great movement. She has
provided herself with tobacco warehouses
and in fact even thing that jsheccessary
to meet the demands of the time. Does
any one ask, where all this will end?
It wili end in the upbuilding of a town
we all will be proud of, an Eastern town
with a Western boom. With the present
indications, Tarboro in less than five
years will double her population."
The above was take from t lie Far
mers' Advocate, and can be applied
right well to Salisbury. it has as
many advantages as Tarboro and
should be far ahead of her in improve
ments. People of Salisbury arouse
from your lethargy; throw off this
mantle of inactivity and get a move
on you. Do y ou know that the Roan

Members of the Farmers' Alliance
do not' take kindly to a published in

of Kansas, who" was here a few days
ago, in which he painted a most d le
ful picture of a tf airs in Kinsks, saying
in effect that the Stale was rapidly go
ing to the "demnition bowwows' be
cause of the success of the Alliance,
which he accused among many other
things of being in favor of the repudi
ation of private debts A Kansas Al
lianceman -who was at Alliance head
quarters here-fco-day said of the inter
view: "It is an Outrageous libel1 upon
the State as well .us upon the Alliance;
we do net : favor the repudiation of
debts and have never done so, and all
such reports as Mr. Perkins knows
very well, have been circulated by out
enemies solely for the purpose of bring
ing discredit upon the organization.
I am afraid that Mr. Perkins will have
to be classed among the soreheads. He
isn t the firt man who has been under
the impression that his retirement
from office meant the destruction of
the country's prosperity. If any mem
ber of the Alliance is in" debt to Mr.
Perkins it is safe to say that he isn't
prepared to sell his claim at a ruinous
discount, nor has he, so far as I hiive
heard, expressed any intention of leav
ing the State."
Secretary Foster's idea that the offi
ces of rive out of six of the Auditor's
of the Treasury might be abolished
without injury to the interests of the
country, is a good one and should be
carried, out, but it isn't very probable
that it will be, because it cannot be
done without the consent of Congress
and it is always safe to say, judging
from the past, that a majority of any
Congress will ha in favor of increasing
instead of decreasing government pit
ronage. It has not been many years
since the lafe Samuel J. Randall pro
posed an amendment to an annual
legislative executive and judicial appro
priation bill abolishing these very bu
reaux and others, on the ground that
their work was simply a duj4tcn.tion of

Mr. Powderly's long open letter ad

suchthat.it has injured rather than

much like a political attack upon
