Read Tom Watson's interview
taken from theAtlanu Constitution
in this issue. Not only read it but
study it, and get the points on your
tongue's end and you will bo ready
to meet any opponent of good gov

We will publish only half of it in this

it gets better the further it goes.
Some of tho partisan papers are
saying that we charged that Judge
Brown suppressed the facts in the
Gideon Band trial. We did not say
that, for the facts did not begin to
come to light, but we said that Judge
Brown and Solicitor Pou were re
sponsible for the facts not coming
out- They could have granted the
motion to go into trial and then the
people could have gotten all the
facts. We did ask and ask again
why it was that they got so anxious
to shut up a matter that there seem
ed at one timo so much desire to ex
pose and ventilate.
A member of the little hide-bound
partisan papers are abusing Tho At

Tom Watson and publishing his in
terview. But these papers are foolish,

in McDowlell county this State.
The gems referred to were found in
this mine. Col. Denning, has done
much to advertise the wealth and
gems and mines in this State, and
as a token of appreciation on the
part of the State Gov. Scales ap
pointed him on his , staff in 18S5.
We visited the mines in McDowell
county last fall and referred to the
matter at be time. Col. Denning is
a prominent Allianceman and is a

The Staightouts of South Carolina

these men are not Democrat. Now
the question again arises, what- is
meant by "Democrat!" If vou mean
a man who has no convictions of his
own, but waits for the bosses and
party manipulators to tell him what
to believe and then obediently swear
mat those are his convictions and
yells for the party and votes the
ticket straight, right or wrong, then
no true Allianceman can be that
kind of a Democrat. But if by Dem
ocrat you mean a man who is in fa
vor of honesty in election, and of
equal rights to poor and rich alike,
then that man cant help being an
Allianceman whether he ever
joined a lodge or not.
If the editor of the News & Ob
server is not a willing tool acd
mouthpiece of monopoly, then lie is
one of the most pitiable qtecimen of
quite a large class who are eystem
matically duped by monopoly, He
id either a blind ictirn himself or
else is knowingly striving to make
victim?. And whether be is on this
or that horn of the delemma,
the tendency of his par (if it has
any effect at all) is to increase the
mimljer of victims. The following
is the closing sentence of one of his
editorials in which he laments the
fact that the South and West have
joined hands to protest against pres
"And so it apjH'ars to us that the
present pular tendency is of fear
ful import, and is by far the most
dangerous outcropping that this
country has ever witnessed."
lie sees no danger in the evil con
ditions of which the people complain
and from which the people suffer. lie
sees no danger on the corruption of
legislatures and congresses, of the
centraling of jKjwer in the hands of
mono.'lies; he sees no danger in the
contraction of the currency and the
concentration of wealth in the hands
of a few; he sees no danger in stuf
fing ballot boxes and depriving free
men of their votes, if done in the in
terets of the Democratic party. But
he sounds an alarm and thinks it
"most dangerous" for the people to
begin to meddle in the government
and organize to demand justice.
Yes it is dangerous to monopoly, it is
dangerous to all who fatten from
the overproduction (?) of labor, it is
dangerous to the politicians, but it is
salvation for the people, lie says in
same editorial that if the people
were to get their demands, they
would be disappointed when they
found that prosperity was not mauk
for them. That is true and the edi
tor unwillingly pays a high tribute
to the modesty, fairness and honesty
of the people. For to have pros
perity made for us we would have
to demand and get special favors,
but the people simply demand equal
rights and an opportunity to pros
per by their own labor. So when
the people get their demands onl)
those will prosper who work and
they will prosper according to the
work done. But every trust and mo
nopoly will have to be supwressed
before this time comes. If monop
oly does not support a paper like the
News & Observer, it ought to.
THE DUKE DE VERA QUA.
The event of last week was the
arrival in New York of the Duke
IVYeragua, the direct descendent
of Christopher Columbus. It is safe
to say that no foreign prince or
emperor could have received such a
hearty welcome or have created such
excitement throughout the country.
The plain AmericAu people are not
inclined to any great extent to hero
worship nor do they pride themselves
in a disply of royal pompt and
grandeur. But there is deep down
in every American heart a feeling of
reverance for the man who first gave
to the world the magnificent domain
now called the American continent
And this feeling of genuine respect
naturally decends to the living re
presentative of the great explorer.
While the Duke De Veragua is
not wholly an insignificant character
on 'his own account yet the fact that
the blood of Columbus flow's through
his views is his greatest attraction in
America. In his own countrv,
Spain, he has been honored by po
sitions of the highest trust, having
been minister of State and having
held other prominent positioni.
Undoubtedly m whatever part of
this country he may travel he will
receive the most cordial and sincere
welcome His prime object in his
visit is to be present at the World's
Fair which is in commemoration of
the discovery of his illustrous an
WHO IS "REX."
Our attention has just been called
to a newspaper communication at
tacking the editor of this paper,
written by some one who hides be
hind the non de plume of "Rex."
There are certain ear-marks about
the article which would indicate that
it wa3 written by some preacher
whose toes are more sensative than
his conscience. But we can't believe it
was a preacher, unless he is an uncon
verted one, for a man who has grace
and is consecrated by God Almighty
to minister to other souls, could not
write such an article, and in the next
place, such a man would not select a
paper published by a' common liar
and a contemptible scoundrel for his
mouthpiece. If Mr. Hex, let him be
preacher or layman, will give his
name, we wilfreply to him if 'he is
worth of notice.
There has been a persistent effort
on the part of the leader of the i
party to misrepresent the action of
the legislature in regard to the Al
liance charter. The truth ought to
1 told. The only thing the
Legislature did about the charter
was to provide that auy man who
had put money in the business
agency fund could draw it out if he
desired to do -so. That is all."
Now Mr. Carolinian stand up! Is that
all? Have you told the whole truth
and nothing but the truth, so help
your nartv? Are vou ignorant of
the facts, or is it possible that you
arewilfnlly dealing in "persistent
misrepresentation" yourself? Yes
"the truth ought to be told." You
moralize well but you should act up
to your professions of fairness. Have
you in your professed fairness ever
told the iwple how the House after
much secret caucusing rushed a bill
through in ten minut s by euspendin
every rule for fair play, to repeal the
whole charter of the State Alliance?
Have you ever told how this bill
wa3 rushed over to the Senate to be
passed there in the same unfair and
indecent haste without giving any
body a hearing?
Have you ever told how that body
at last granted a hearing after get
ting scared and half-hearted as
charged by Joe Caldwell?
Have you ever told that after we
had offeied to accept an amendment
to the present charter to allow all
who desired to draw their money out
of the Business Agency to do so, that
the Legislature would not accept it,
bu t seeing that they were put in a hole
and that it would be death to them
not to repeal the charter then, began
to caucus on the matter?
Have you ever told that they pro
ceed, d, after caucusing a week, to
add other amendments which showed
that their real object was further
than what. they professed?
Have you ever told that
these amendments says that
alliance should increase the
anv ollice that the charter shal
Have you ever told that another
of these amendments provides cer
tain duties for certaiu officers and
says that if these duties are not done
in a certain time that the charter
shall be forfeited?
Have you ever told the people that
another amendment says that even
if any employee of the Alliance or of
any of. its departments fails to do
his duty that the whole charter of
t'.ie whole sttate shall be forfeited?
Have you ever told the people that
another amendmant lays down and
prescribes how the proceeds arrising
from the Business Agency shall be
Have you ever told the people that
tnis was not only unusual but that
it was unfair and unjust?
Have you ever told the people that
no other corporation, even if it had
violated every term of its charter,
was ever treated thus, while the
Alliance has never violated a single
clause or term of its charter?
Have you ever told the people that
the real object of the Legislature
was to kill the Alliance and that it
got chicken hearted and tried to ar
range for the courts and the Attorney
General to do what if did nqt have
the courage to do?
Mr. Carolinian you will be re
spected more by even your friends
if you will stand up like a man and
tell the whole truth instead of trying
to conpeal jt and appeal to partisian
prejudice. Have you rpajued that
your sheet is getting to be verv un
reliable? Dear reader, do you remember the
men who were begging you so earn
estly and pathetically on the stump
last fail to vote a certain tjeket and
save the dear old party? They talked
about the great principles of their
party and told you how much inter
ested they were in your welfare.
Where are those men now? Every
one scrambling and pJarnorjngforan
office. Is it not just possible that
selfishness prompted them to go on
the stump and swear that they were
greatly concerned about your wel
fare? Wonder if they were not then
thinking of the office they would get
n you snouia vote tneir way. J udgf
ing by their present actions tbev
thought very little about the people
and very much about themselves.
They are running up and down the
road between their homes and Wash
ington telling how much they did
for the party and begging for some
of the milk from the public tit. In
fact, Washington is full of these fel
lows now and has been ever since the
election. Is not this the worBe kind
of paternalism? Did not these fellows
swear that they were opposed to pa
ternalism? Well, they are opposed
to it for the other fellow, but in fa
vor of it for themselves.
HE IS TROUBLED.
The reports from the meeting of
the county Alliances Thursday, have
the same familiar whereases, now
therefores and resolveds as of old.
At the July meetings we shall doubt
less have the accustomed "demands."
It is evident that the Third party has
begun again just where it left off
last fall. Charlotte Observer.
Joe Caldwell seems to be troubled
about the whereases, therefores, and
"demands." He will soon be trou
bled much more about an over-pro
duction of the votes of the people.
WHAT GOOD HAVE THEY DONE'
The Southern Governor all Dem
ocrats have met and dispersed.
Their meeting will amount to noth
ing, we fear. Jc truth, they do not
represent the plain people, the farm
ers ana laboring men. The Demo
cratic party, which has placed these
governors in power is to-day rua by
its worst elements and is a machine
of fraud and oppression, organized
to benefit the aristocrats and monop
olies and hold the offices.
The Democrat machine bosses
cheat the people in the elections, al
though they are loud in their pro
testations of friendship for the
wage-earners and tilkrs of the soil.
This meeting of governors "resolved"
that they were in favor of immigra
tion! They thought no one could
see through the thin disguise of their
hostility to the ople. But all the
world knows that machine rule is
maintained and conducted to bene
fit the few at the expense of the
many. The bone and sinew, the
hard working men and women of the
Uuited States, and of foreign coun
tries, do not care to come under such
rulers, an so they stay away.
Governor Carr, of North Carolina,
who has not yet condemned the
frauds of the late election, offered
resolutions at the
mg. All of these related to immi
gration. Their language was what
might be called exceedingly grand
and high-sounding. Papers were
read, setting forth the resources of dif
ferent Sou them States; and finally an
address was issued to the people of
this country and Europe, setting
forth the agricultural and commer
cial advantages of the Southern Com
monwealth. It will be all in vain. So long as
the South is dominated by political
bosses, who care nothing for the peo
ple, no settlers can be counted on. If
any should be fooled into coming,
they would go away in a little time.
Unitl there is a material change in
the Southern methods of intolerant
and high handed fraud, it cannot
be expected that those used to free
dom will submit themselves to auto
The census of 1890 shows a de
plorable lack of foieign-born citi
zens in the South. The rush always
has been to the north and
northwest. The census statistics
show how it is. There were, accord
ing to the census, more than nine
millions of foreign-born citizens in
the United States. Only about three-
quarters of a million of these are lo
cated in the South. Missouri has
234,809 and Texas 152,956. It may
be uoticed that the large foreign
populations are in the most thrifty
of the Southern States, where there
are also big cities. Great towns
draw largely upon the foreign el
But look at the purely agricultur
al States of the South. The fore:?n-
born population of North Carolina
is but 3702, out of a total of 1,-
617,947. South Carolina has 6,270
foreigners and a full population
of 1,151,149. Virginia 18,374 of
the former in a total enumeration of
1,655,980. Georgia has 12,137 for
eigners and a total population of
1,837,353. Mississippi has 7,952
foreigners to a wholo number of 1,-
These figures illustrate our mean
ing so far as the South is concerned.
Let us look to the North. The im
perial State of New York, with a
full population of 5,997,853, has 1,-
571, uau foreigners, Massachusetts
with a population of only about
three thousand more than Texas
contains 657.137 forei
nois has a population of 3,826.351
and 842,347 foreigners. California's
population is 1,208,130, with 366,309
foreigners. This proportion is main
tained in the other northern com
munities. Emigrants are filling up
the States of the North and are
making them rich and powerful. It
is because those States a?e really
free, and wages there are good.
Men who toil, escaping from the
despotisms of the old world, do not
intend to throw their living away in
States where wages are low; where
there is neither free thought, free
speech nor frep political action.
They do not fancy those govern
ments which do not prevent their
small boys from pelting strangers
with stale eggs, and whose leading
politicians ao not rebuke such ill
These are plain words. The eov

ing the election law.
We have been
showing un its unfairness as inter
preted and uad by the Democratic
machine ia the last cam pairn. l)ur-
ing the time not a single paper in
the State, that we have seen, has even
tried to answer a single argument we
hava produced agaust the law, or a
single charge we have made. We
thought probably they were shutting
their eyes to the truth and were too
prejudiced to even rend it But it
now turns out that they have been
reading what we said, but seeing that
they could not answer it they have
kept quiet As a proof of this we
note the fact that when we quoted
from the majority decision of the
Supreme Court as delivered by Jus
tice Avery, and the minority opinior,
as delivered by Justice Clark, ou the
registration clause of the election law,
in the case of Harris vs. Scarborough,
they raised a howl. They then 6a w
their opportunity to appeal to preju
dice without producing arguments
and trying to answer our arguments.
The North Carolinian whines about
us spitting venom at Justice Avery
and stabbing him in the back and
such rot If that paper had wanted to
be fair, why did it not reproduce our
editorial and let the people judge for
themselves. We quoted the language
of the decision so that the people
could see whether or not we were
right We are induced to think that
the Legislature that passed the law
is more at fault than the court in
passing upon the law. In fact since
we have begun to investigate the mat
ter, we have discovered that the Su
preme Court formerly, in the case of
Peebles vs. Commissions of Davie
county, construed the election law,
and that their decision did not please
the politicians, so they demanded
that the legislature amend it so as to
overrule the Supreme Court and
when the present law was passed the
Legislature no donht intended tW
the Supreme Court should decide on
the registration (if the matter came
up) as the court did decide it As
to J udge Avery, we have much more
confidence in him than some of our
T , nr i i i .
ouages. we nave Known him to
take the side of the people in more
than one matter on political ques
tion. But to revert to the decision
from which we quoted, if the courts
is right then it shows that the law is
a very bad one and should be amend
ed. The North Carolinian wants to
know whv we did not have it amend
ed when we w ere in the Senate in
1891. If we could then have seen
the abuses and frauds which have
been committed in its name, we would
have fought to have repealed or
amended it as hard as we fought to
pass the Railroad Commission and
have all corporations to pay taxes as
private citizens do. But the law is
something like John Sherman's "An
ti-Trust law." It was passed appa
rently to suppress trusts, and the
politicians and partisan papers so
told the people. But the real object
of the law has just now, after mauy
years, come to light when Judges
Kicks and Taft made their decisions
the other day under it against labor
and in favor of trusts. The real
hidden unfareness and meanness of
the election law did not sow itself
till the last election. But the man
who drew the bill was preparing for
just such frauds when the immen
gency should arrive, as was commit
ted last November.
The North Carolinian referring to
the criticisms being passed upon the
Legislature for trying to repeal the
Alliance charter says:
"The i party men are mad because
they cannot use the interest on the
business agency fund to, prorogate
their false notions and continue their
deception of the people.
This is the milk in the cocoanut"
This charge that th funds of the
Alliance had been used for political
purposes was first made before an4
while the Legislature was in session.
But the State Executive Committee
of the Alliance the State Trustee of
the Agency fund gave the lie offici
ally to every such charge and proved
it Dy the books. This charge was
made to fry to bolster up an excuse
iorine legislature" to tamper with
our charter, and The Carolinian now
repeats it to try to excuse that body
1W "auniairana unjust action. The
Carolinian must learn testate the

impunity charge others with trying

From all accounts "the fellows

and turn the Stafe over to the Peo
ple's or the Republican party, he jit
tered a great truth, which Mr. Cleve

meant what he said, because he ex
pected that a reasonably fair election
would be held in the State, lie well
knew that a fair election meant a
victory for the people. Every day
of the campaign, from the gloomy
begining to its demoralized ending,
demonstrated the truth of Ransom's
Chicago prognostications. That a
different result was declared was due
entirely to the most glaring and
shameless election frauds ever perpe
trated among a free people. But

not wonder at Mr. Cleveland's "in-

particularly is this the case when the
applicants themselves are considered.
Who are some of the applicants?
Gudger, who is closely relaiied, is
Vance's candidate for Collector of

lucrative office in the State. G udger
was an outspoken auti-Cleveland
man, and three weeks before the
election he abandoned the campaign
and gave up the State. Billingsgate
Glenji, whose vulgarity, irreverence
aud bulling disgusted intelligent
people, everywhere in the State was
a violent and vehement anti-Cleveland
man. He begged the State Con
vention to make him a Presidential
Elector, believing at the time that
Mr. Cleveland would not be nomina
ted at Chicago. Glenn is Vance's
candidate for District-Attorney for
the Western District Vance is a
courageous rhan in some things. lie
says boldly (since Cleveland turned
his back to him in the White House
recently) that he will not recommend
any man for appointment who was
an "original Cleveland mm." Wo

the Committee oi Interstate Com

to see that t here are some Senators
who have the manhood to condemn
such prostitution of the jover of the
courts. Senator Voorhees inclosing
his speech reviewing the facts and
law in the case said he had only this
to say in regard to the judiciary:
-That when bad laws are enactvl,
when mistakes are mad?, some judges
are glad to mitigate those laws and
to show no pleasure in their enforce

who grasped after power, who loved
power for its own sake, and enforce
