OXE YEAR. II W
THE UNDEMOCRATIC DTMCCRCY.
The legislature of North Carolina
a few days ago, t-ngaged in the un
democratic act of electing magis
trates. A great list of about l.KX)
Dames, prepared by the committee,
was placed in nomination- In all,
there are about 4,000 magistrate
in the State, chosen in the ;tme
way. An inpereepunie percentage
of this army of offiee-holdertt m
belong to some party other than th
Democratic party; but substantially
the whole mass are Democrat.-.
Tbev are elected by those wl
havf no personal knowledge of th
men, or their character and qualifi
cations. This would not perhaps be
go important were not the magis
trates chosen to transact home busi
news. Their duties are importan
and multifarious. They are close t
the people, yet the people have notli
inr ifi nv in their neiection. lhev
are appointed by members of tl
General Assembly and by pohtica
.AmmUfoi.tt. The legislature doe
X, S au . r ' c )
no more than to ratify nomination
made by irresponsible politicians
Tho law which nc rmit these things
is intolerant and undemocratic.
Mr. Vance introduced a bill into
the lower house to elect the magis
trates and commissioners of Bun
Minlin county, bv the people. He
said the members of the Alliance
favored its passage; but on a motion
of a Mr. Lowell, the bill was table
by a overwhelming majority. The
wishes of Mr. Vance's constituents
were contemptuously ignored and he
was sat upon. Yet there was really
no rearon why the people of Bun
nonibo should bo favored any more
than those of any other county-
Before another general election
takes nlaco the magistrates of Bun
combe, and of every other county in
North Carolina, will choose new
county commissioners. Theso will
all be Democrats. Tho commission
ers will appoint registrars in every
piecinct of the State, who will all be
Democrats. The commissioners will
also select judges of election for
every polling place. The Demo
crats will have control of every reg
istration book, and of every election,
board, in every precinct in ninety
Under the operation of this unjust
system, another General Assembly
of Democrats will be elected or rath
er counted in in 1894. That legisla
ture, under the direction of local po
liticians, will elect 13,000 more Dem
ocratic magistrates. The new set of
magistrates will help to elect a new
set of Democratic county conimis
sioners anuso on, anu so on. inus
the Democrats hope and aim .to re
tain possession of the State govern
ment, and of the local governments
of the counties. All of this is clear
In spite of these infamous laws
the People's party, in North Caro
lina, polled 47.000 votes in the late
election, that is, the canvassing
boards permitted them to be counted,
and it was so announced. It any
votes were suppressed by the Demo
eratic election officers, it is known
in the various precincts. "With this
one sided election machinery, in the
hands of Democratic officials, it was
possible to suppress votes; and it was
done by the wholesale.
But inspite of unjust laws, the
People's party, if true to itself, will
grow and wax exceeding strong, and
will never give up the fight until
Home Rule shall be established
The time will come when bills like
that introduced by Mr. Vance will
not be tabled "by an overwhelming
majority." There will be a free bal-
lott and a fair count in every county,
town, city and precinct in North
Carolina. The people will do right.

THE ALLIANCE CHARTER.
Last week we promptly denounced
the amendments which the Lesisla
ture tacked on to the State Alliance
Charter; we denounced them not on
ly as grossly unjust, but as being
prompted by a mean and cowardly
spirit We offered two amendments
as President of the Alliance, that
covered every objection that has been
made; thi3 forced the Legislature to
show its hand. Their real object was
to destroy the Alliance; so they cau
cussed on the matter for a week, and
then tacked on some other amend
ments that are meaner than anything
that has ever before disgraced the
statute books of the State. The Al
liancemen present certainly did not
see the full meaning and purport of
these amendments, or they would
have fought them to the last; and as
a last resort, if they were defeated,
they "should have entered a protest on
ihe journals of both houses; denoun
cing the measure, and exposing the
designs of the ' sneaks and cowards
behind it . , "We regret that they did
not do this. The men who have com
mitted this wrong will hereafter try
to claim that the amendments were
satisfactory to all parties. We here
and now in advance denounce such a
claim as false.

in the Senate were its strongest de-

but from the conespondence before
us, we brand the above sis untrue
The paper that sets itself up to say
who are demagogues and who are
not, should first be capable of telling
the truth, whether it suits its parti-
san nurnose or not. lixe cume oi
Anan'as is almost as bad as tne si
Senator Atwater a member of th
committee was opposed to the amend
ments but notice wa? served on him
that if he refused to sign the report
of the committee recommending th
amendments to the Legislature, that
they would recommend that the en
tire charter bo renealeu. 1ms was
a pretty piece of bull-dozing foi
legislative body- under these cir
cumstances Senator Atwater seeing
that we were in the hands ot men
who had no regard for justice
thought it was better to take the
amendments than to lose the char
ter. But in this Senator Atwater
was mistaken. Men who play th
bully and stoop to mean underhanded
acts are always cowards. Unless the
legislature was made up of fools it
would not have dared to repeal the
barter after we had offered to do eve-
ything that was fair or even asked
The fact is the Legislature found out
that it was in a hole and had come
near butting its political brains
out. They could not repeal the
charter without committing politi
cal suicide, and if they simply ac
cepted the two amendmemts which
wo offered in the present charter.
they failed to accomplish their pur
pose, which was to cripple and fi
nally kill the Alliance. So they
hatched up some more amenndments,
and thought if they could get the
endorsement of the Alliance mem
bers that that would save them. So
they commenced their bull-dozing to
accomplish this purpose. Senator
Atwater should have defied them
and dared them to repeal the char
ter. For what they did do was mean
er than if they had repealed the
charter outright. The Chronicle
Al A 11 It 1
says max uie amendments are ac
ceptable to Alliancemen in all par
ties." We dare the Carolinian to
name one Alliancemen who has not
deseited the demands of the organ
ization, that the amendments are
acceptable to. Name one.
The Carolinian further says that
there are some who will try to pose
as martyrs and work up prejudice
against the Democratic party. If
there were any who would be dis
posed to play this role, it will not be
necessary, for a simple statement of
the facts is enough to damn the ae-

We see from history that brutal strife
is eliminated as man makes progress.
We used to go to war because we want
ed to fij;hL We picked a quarrel, and
when there was no excuse we found one
for the fun of.it. We did it because of
the brutal powers that were unsubdued,
uncultured, untaught. We do just as
mean and bad things today, but we do
them more scientifically. We have made
progress in methods. We do not sharpen
our swords now: we have a 1a w against
it. We ehoot a man to pieces with a
galling gun. We do not use poisoned
daggers, but dynamite bombs, and save
the trouble of burying him. But in all
these things there is something to be

A man that gets drunk goet right down
with doc. X can prove that. Some
men were talking one day on the pUxx
of a country tavern about fierce dog.
and one fellow said, "I am not afraid of
any dog." Another man said: I hare a

Suppose you go out there and sit down.
The other man said be would. So they
all gathered around and went out to
watch him. But the owner of the dog
said, "I warn yon not to go; yon will

HOW THE SENATE STANDS ON SILVER
The New York World has made a
poll of the United States Senate on
the silver question. It says that 39
Senators are opposed to the present
silver law, 27 are for it and 1G non
commital. This, however, throws
but little light on the question. Eve
ry man who is with the people would
be opposed to the present silver law
if he could tret a better one, on the
other hand every honest man would
rather have the present law than
nothing. When the question first
came up in the Senate we understand
that Hansom and Vance voted against
repealing the law. That was right
and we made a note of it and gave
them full credit But the World
now reports Kansom as being in fa
vor of repeal. Wre hope this is not
so. it seems to us tnat a man who;
would vote to repeal the present sil
ver law, which puts $4,500,000 in
circulation each month, is either a
bol or a knave. We can understand
iow a New York bondholder or bank
can be in favor of stopping: the in
rease of the currency, but how i
man who is elected by such people
who live in North Carolina can fa
vor or vote for such a measure is be
yond our comprehension. Monev was
never so scarce since we can remem
ber as it is now in this State. Busi
ness is stagnated. Don't repeal the
present silver law, but amend it so
as to put more money in circulation
and give it full legal tender f unc
tions. That is what the people want
and they will vote that way two years
of the people are rolling in 'luxury.

let up on this election business we
propose to turn on some light that
will make the corrupt scoundrels
who did the stealing at the late elec

shame, unless they are shameless.
Mr. Cleveland made his address at
the Inauguration before he took the
oath of office; so it is not the address
of a President but of a private citi
zen; Mr. Cleveland.
r or tne last two weeks we have
daily gotten further behind with our
correspondence. We were called to
Raleigh to look after the interests of
the Alliance when the Legislature
was trying to repeal our charter. We
were absent all the next week at
Washington, D. C. When we re
turned we found over one hundred
letters unanswered. Many subscri
bers whose names were sent m two
weeks ago have just been entered on
our books. We regret this delav but
it could not be avoided, but we prom
lse you it shall not occur in the fu
ture. We have employed a steno
grapher and additional clerical force
so that we can now keep up with each
day's work. Every letter will now
be answered promptly, and every new
subscriber will get a paper by return
mail. We trust that those who have
been sending us clubs will continue
to work for the paper and send in
many more clubs. Let every reader
try to send us several new subscribers
within the next ten days.
