The meeting at Jordan's stoie
Thursday between Hon. F. M. Sim
mons and Mr. Marion Butler was a
Waterloo to the arrogant Third party
leadrr. This meeting at Jordon's
store heralded lor weeks in advance
as the greatest gathering of Populists
this whole section including Samp
son Johnson, Wayne and part it
Duplin counties had known since
the party was organized.
But, bless your soul after they had
come and come, and they were all
sized up we found that the "mountain
had labored and brought forth"
about 200 Pops, these with some
thing over 100 Democrats formed
the audience to greet the bearded
chieftain aforesaid at Jordan's store.
Butler and Dr. J. E. Person came
together and found Hon. F. M. Sim
mons duly on hand to reply, as he
thought and as all thought, the
Populists included to Mr. Butler.
But the latter, true to his nefarious
practices and unfair mode of pro
ceedure, refused to make the first
speech and demanded that Mr. Sim
mons speak first. Mr. Simmons, al
though thus unfairly dealt with in the
outset, did not act ugly, but readily
took the lead, after making known
to Mr. Butler his protest at being
thus taken advantage of at speaking
where the Democrats had been chal
lenged to meet the chief of the Pops.
Butler in his speech following Mr.
Simmons tried to deny that the Pops,
had challenged the Democrats; but
Mr. W. Munroe, who was on the
scene "called him down" on this
point and had the following official
notice, which was posted in the
M ai ion Butler and Dr. J. E Per
son will speak at Jordon's store on
Thursday Oct. 4th 1S94 at 1 2 o'clock
If the Democrats will bring out a
speaker an equal division of time will
be given them.
By order of Ex. Com. P. P.
Then calling on a leading Populist in
the audience Mr. Munroe said, "How
about it, Mr. Gc Uvvin; isn't that a
challenge to the Democracy?" and
Mr. Godwin admitted that it was.
In his opening speech Mr. Sim
mons made a splendid presentation
of the grandure of the Democratic
party; of its achievements for the mas
pes and of its clearly demarked pur
poses to accomplish even greater
things for their relief. It was a good
speech, with no mud slinging. He
wounded no man's feelings, and held
the absolute attention cf the entire
ButK-r's reply to Mr. Simmons
was unworthy of any gentleman,
much less a man posing as and seek
ing to to be a great leader of the
Democracy held her own glorious
ly and fn m the way the Populists
listened and were impressed by the
wordc and demeanor of the two
speakers in contrast, we may surely
expect good resultshi November.

ordeal for the nation, and would be es
