The Rutherford Hlar suggests the
name of Itey. J. I. Carson, of Ru
therford, for superintendent of pub
lic instruction, and calls on the
Examiner among other papers, to
suggest a name for consideration.
In compliance with sach request,

for consideration the names of Oil
ver H. Dockery, of Richmond, and
Dr. J. O. Ramsay of Rowan.
Either of these gentlemen would
just precisely fill the bill. Both
are rood canvassers. Each is
thoroughly educated and ad
mirably qualified for the place.
Both are-young, progressive, prac
tical men ; and as standard bearers
of the republican party in a single
bunded contest, either would reflect
credit upon the party before the
election, and the office afterwards.
The Examiner would not be un
derstood as nominating either of
these gentlemen or as expressing a
'personal preference or pet choice In
this matter. The above names are
merely suggested for public consid
eration. If these are not enough,
the Examiner can name a dozen
others. Furthtr West it has a
favorite, but to others must be left
the suggestion of his name.
IMstrtct, County and Township
It will soon be time for the peo
ple to begin to give attention to dis
trict, county and township organi
Although there is but one officer
for the State at large to be elected,
the campaign before us is one of the
first importance to the republican
party in North Carolina.
In six of the judicial districts
judges are to be chosen. Eight
members of congress are to elect,
members of the legislature, twelve
solicitors, a superior court clerk
and all the county officers for
every county in 'the State, and all
township officers must be elected.
And, in all respects, the campaign
of 1874 is of quite as much impor
tance to the republicans of North
Carolina as was that of 187.
The necessity of thorough organ
ization in every neighborhood, and
a system of frequently bringing the
people of every township together
is greater than at any former period
in the history of this State.
The democrats of the late legisla
tare, in passing a law to coerce
poor white men of North Carolina,
disposed for the first time to vote
with us, have also framed a law in
tended to disfranchise hundreds and
thousands of colored men.
. This law is known as the identifi
cation bill, and it provides that
when a man shall start to the polls
he must take along a neighbor to
swear who he is.
Hence It will be necessary for all
of the republicans of every town
ship to come to personally know
each other, so that no man may lose
his vote for want of identification.
' The Examiner will begin and pub
lish the State and district organiza
tions as they existed in 1872, and the
republicans of the State are earnest

should be essentially' and In every
respect representative in their con
stituent parts. And to make them
pre-eminently so, timely notice
should be given the townships-and
counties, in order that the best and
most thoroughly representative
men may be sent up to the district
It is further suggested that the
several district conventions, each
and all, recommend to the State
or central executive committee a
candidate for superintendent of
public instruction. In that way a
State convention is made absolute
ly unnecessary, at the same time
the wishes of the people are as
thoroughly known as they could be
through a State convention, for
every township and county has
spoken through the district conven
tions. It is a system of triangula
tion, so to speak, covering every
inch of territory in the State.
If thio suggestion be adopted it
would be necessary for all the dis
tricts to nave spoken by the mid
dle of May, in order that the State
or central committee meet and
place the first choice pf the several
dsstricts in the field by the first of
June. If these district conventions
could mtet in April, and let the
candidate for superintendent of
public instruction take the field by
the 10th of May, it would be all the
better for a single-handed contest.'
The Examinvr would suggest to
the various district committees the
propriety of calling their conven-

never to be called into question by
the republican party, it was urged
that this was an extraordinary case,
a mere incident, and it was doubt
ful if the republicans of the State
could be gotten together In conven
tion incidentally. Leaving out of
the question trouble and expense,
it was believed that the people
could not be assembled for an oc
casion like this In sufficient num
bers, and in a sufficiently represen
tative capacity, to reflect the gen
eral views of the republicans of the
So it was determined to leave the
matter of selecting a candidate for
the office of public instruction to
the executive committee, advised
by twenty-three representative
republicans for the State at
large; and with the addition of
the iuternal improvement and free
school resolutions at the head of
this paper, the platform adopted by
the republican convention of April,
1872, is to be the general platform
of the republicans of North Caro
lina for 1874.
The above statement is made for
the purpose of eliciting a popular
expression of opinion, and if it
should be found to be the general
desire of the party for a convention,
one will, of course, be called. Let
republicans in all parts of the State
be heard from.

the period of litigation is ended by
final decision of the case in the

The Examiner simply takes notice
of this case, here, to protest, for the
people of North Carolina, against
this, to them, expensive litigation
in the interest of one railroad ring
With this suit, the State of North
Carolina has paid, of lawyers'
fees alone, not less than ten thou
sand dollars within the past
twelve months, for services charged
for in railroad and public debt liti
gations, and one is led to believe
from the nature of things that the
paying has hardly begun. :V ' ,
And what is all this for, do your
ask?' .).:-, , ,r-
It is -a melancholy fact, that,
North Carolina has not one dollar
of interest in any railroad within
her borders, save the equity of im
possible redemption. All is mort
gaged, deep down 'below the hope
of recovery, some two and three
times over, yet the State
treasury is being constantly de
pleted to gratify some rival rail
road line and give the legal ; pro
fession of the State a profitable air

lina has no actual interest in the

It follows that the power eiven to
the general assembly to provide for the
election, gives them the power to elect
the trustees" (of the university) ' them
selves. These are the closing words of the
article which the Daily 'Neves gives
place to with pleasure as being to
the point, and it should be preserved
as a good example of begging the
question. Backed by all the intelli
gence or the utate, the jsencs
ought to have been able to produce
a more able article, filled with more
of the characteristic bitterness and
venom of its party, especially when
most of its colleagues have had
their say, and a month's time
to write out this sage opinion. The
Examiner is gratified and refreshed
that the writer had the boldness to
say he believes both the parties to
the controversy are firmly persuaded
of the correctness of their respective
opinions,and the question is simply,
who is right?
Who is right ? The governor or
the (so-called) trustees ? This
amendment to the constitution is
plain and gives the general assem
bly power to provide for the elec
tion of trustees. There is noth
ing in the amendment about other
wise provided for, and Stanly's
case quoted by ,,rJnlversitas,"of the
A'irtG does not apply. No
doubt the governor is correct in his
opinion, and the courts will so
hold, if the question is,as it will be,
brought before them.
But take the argument and apply
it to other sections of the constitu
tion. Art. 9, sec 2, says the legis

a uniform system of public schools,

Consolidation and the State's
Interest in the North Carolina
If the State has no moneyed - in
terest in the North Carolina road,
as Major . Smith, president of that
corporation, says, it may be asked
by some, what becomes of the con
solidation plan of President Smith
As stated in the Examiner yes
terday, the State of North Carolina
has no interest In any railroad now,
save the equity of redemption, but
this fact did not necessarily defeat
or make impossible the scheme of
jno matter who may now or
hereafter own the property of the
INortn Carolina railroad, the com
pany 'remains intact.. It was not
the State seeking consolidation, but
the North Carolina railroad com
pany. That company came before
the legislature asking the authority
of the State to make the consolida
tion arrangement. Because the
State happened to be a stockholder
in this road which she has hypoth
ecated arid mortgaged away, did
not alter the case at all, for had the
North Carolina railroad company
been, from the first, a private cor
poration of individuals it must
have come' to the legislature just
the same for any change or enlarge
ment of powers in its charter.
Unless something is done to re
lieve this " mortgaged property, the
State wilt , cease to be a stockholder
in name, as well as in fact, eight
years from this date. Unless the
State' bonds Issued to build the road
are paid, and the balance of the
State debt arranged, whatever pub
ic property the State may have a
claim to, must inevitably pass into
tha hands of the creditors of the
State. : The income the State would
derive from; the North Carolina
Railroad,' now goes to pay interest
on, the construction bonds of the
road, .and the moment the bonds
mature the courts will transfer the
State stock in the road to the bond
holders. And , this will be a little
ess than eight years from this date.

The Patrons of Husbandry
setter iroin a itcpublican
To the Editor of the Exam
My notice has been directed to
an article or articles in the Exami
ner of the 5th., condemnatory of
the order of Pajrons of Husbandry,
in which articles you make It ap
pear that the granges are opposed
to the mechanics and workmgmen
and otherwise use language; at
whieh lam surprised. You say in
your comments pn an article from
one of your exchanges, "these
granges started out under the cry
of opposition to monopolies. They
had but oneidea, and they have
run into the very essence of monop
oly. The order is a huge monopo
ly within itself, and one to be se
riouslyconsidered." Yet the arti
cles concerning which these re
marks were made state that the
grangers of Iowa have bought the
patent of a harvester, and made
arrangements for building, and sel
ling them to farmers (the only
class that use them) at $140 one half
the former price. I entirely fail
to see how a move in that direction
will result in injury or damage to
the workmen and mechanics en
gaged in that line of work, but it
seems to me reasonable, when pro
perly considered that such a move
will be to their advantage, irom
the fact that if the Iowa grangers
can produce an article of good mer
it $140 less than former prices, the
extended use of the same will as
suredly call for a more extended
manufacture, the benefits of which
will stop with the workmen engag
ed in their manufacture. In this
I see no Injury that will befall any
one except those who have hereto
fore manufactured and sold at the
ruinous rates mentioned viz $280.
You say, "suppose there are one
hundred thousand plows wanted
by the grangers of North Carolina.
Their agent or representati ve goes to
some large manufacturer of plows,
the Mayhers for instance, and
makes a contract of course geting
the benefits of a liberal discount.
This agent does not go to Separk,
Hicks & Co.. of Raleighjto Richard
son of Weldon, to Farmer fc Wain
right of Wilson, or the Edgecombe
Agricultural Works of Tarboro, Ac
&c" Now, Mr. Editor, you may
go to any agricultural house in
North Carolina, and I am much

sir. if I am not much mistaken the
granges had their origin in one of
t A : A. 1 if rA. A
tne strongest repuoiican estates in
the union, and notwithstanding the
manipulation of the different par
ties, they as a whole have herd aloof
from politics. . They may in their
selections choose those who are .in
accord with them, (and in this they
will not be the first to establish the
precedent) but that they will as a
whole unite themsel ves . to any one
of the politcal parties now existing.
I am not prepared to believe. One
thing however, I am certain of,
they will keep a sharp eye on' tne
squanderers of our public money,
of I whatever political party they
may belong. This the Examiner
cannot find fault with.
In contradiction of your assertion
that the grangers are in opposition
to mechanics and working-men; I
refer you j to the labors of deputy
Abbott, who has charge of the work
of organizing lodges of the Sover
eigns of Husbandry, composed J of
mechanics and working-men, an
account of which may be seen . in
the New York Weekly Times dated
4th February, under tho head of
Patrons of Husbandry." t -
The .Eta in. an article last sum
mer or ran threatened to . tax . a
certain wagon the Mllbourne
out of the State, because as alleged
it was furnished at a less price than
the same could be bought here.
Now I ask the Examiner- if this is
right. I dare say that if in buying
material for running the Examiner
it Was found the same article could
be bought cheaper from some other
State, its orders would be sent there.
But in the name of reason, why
this charge concerning the granges,
or to my knowledge the Jra en
dorsed the granges, last summer,
and criticised others of the press for
not doing the same. JJoes the x
aminer think there are no farmers
