formulating some plan by
which the South could be sup

matter which has been under
serious consideration for some
time, but the present move is
the first that has been made of
a general character looking
toward its establishment.

Senator Fvarts at a dinner giv

years ago, at which Senator
Stewart insisted on presenting

Senator Fvarts. "ot an expe

very nice hobby. 'Hobby,' he
repliedthis is no hobby, it is a

my friend,' said I, 'between a
hobby and a horse?' ' 1 he
difference,', said he. giving the
table another lash with the
whip, 'is that you can get oil ot

The Kinston l;ree Press is
inclined to be a little caustic.
It honors us by quoting a por
tion of an editorial and com
ments as follows :
The Wilson Advanci:, though
claiming to be a Democratic paper
takes no stock in silver or ia V. f.
Bryan. It says: To us, the "Chi
cago platform is simply "a last year's
bird nest." then the Advanck must
be a migratory bird politically here
today somewhere else tomorrow.
Perhaps it may go wjtj, he ye(nv

in the political home built last year by
the Democrats at Chicago. Bryan

Brother Herbert may stick
to "Bryan and Silver" just as
long as he likes, and if his side
is right we hope it may suc

there is ample room for both
of us and we inhabit a land
that is (called) free. As for
our "migratory" characteristics,

Itjs common for those in favor of
the gold standard to cry out that sil
ver is cheap money worth less than
fifty cents in the dollar; and the gov
tintr.eiit is endorsing this position
that a silver dollar is not worlh more
than fifty cents in the dollar ; now if
this is so why does the government
issue that iimiK'V ;is worth one dol
lar ? Why do they deal out a piece
of money thev say is not worth tiiiy
cents, yet pass it lor a full tloll.tr ?
When we ask fr a fi-.Ii what do
thev give us? When we ask tor
bread what do they give us?
The shame of this deed will te
bound on somebody's head vet.
Wi: had long since ceased
te feel surprise! at anything ap
pearing in the editorial col
umns of the Times (lre)in the
pen of either of its editors ) but
we must adnvt that we were;
surprised te reael the above ar
ticle, signed P. 1). Gold. We
cannot understand how any
man, occupying the position in
a community that Mr. Golel oc
cupies, could allow his name to
be connected with a statement
which, if not absolutely false,
is at least calculated to leave
a false impression upon the
mind of the reader.
He says the government is
endorsing the position that a
silver dollar is not worth more
than fifty cents in the dollar,"
and having made this assertion
he proceeds te) ask the question,
"Why do they deal out a
piece of money they say is not
worth fifty cents, yet pass it
for a full dollar?" In the first
place, "the government" has
no personality ami therefore
cannot endorse anything, but
passing this inaccuracy in
grammar (ami others by, anel
taking it for granted that he
means the administrative! offi
cials, in charge of that branch
of the government, still his as
sertion is untrue, in part, as it
has only been claimed that, tiik

The only comment necessary
in such cases is te be tound in
the closing sentence ef this
masterly (?) effusion: "The
