is for such a belief? Iflhe "misled

A Faim"r' evidently nals that blind
the truth and distort the facts, then
they might be in the same fix as the
misled and partisan blind "A Farm

"misled A lliancemen" who
both aides w hat is the matter with
"A Farmer." He reads the Char
lotte Observer or some othtr nartv
boss-serving sheet. A few days ago
these papers came out with double
head lines saying "Cleveland and
Carlisle had refused the proposition
of the Wall Street bankers" and then
went on to argue that this showed
that the adminstration was with the
people and against Wall Street
When the facts are, that Cleveland
and Carlisle are carrying out exactly
the same policy pursued by Harrison
and Foster and the Democra's them
selves said that Wall Street run that
administration. We dare any Dem
ocratic paper to deny this. Next
that proposition of Wall Street was
all a bogus affair to fool the people.
J he very next week Carlisle went to
Xew York pretending that hp wnf
to the big Naval Keview, but it was
to consult with Wall Street and he
did consult with Wall Street and the
consultation was satisfactory to both
sides. We dare
sheet to deny this. Again what has
Carlisle and Cleveland decided to
do? To pay out gold till it is all
gone. Does this please Wall Street?
It is exactly what they want done.
If the people doubt it, let them rise
en masse and demand that Carlisle
pay out silver instead of gold which
is lawful (and we dare the Democrat
ic papers aud Mr. Cleveland to deny
it) and see what a howl it will raise
in Wall Street. Why does this policy
please Wall btreet? JJecause when
the administration says that it will
not pay out silver but will pay gold
only, when the gold is all out what
is the only thing left to do? To
issue more bonds, interest bearing
bonds and let'Wall Street buy them
up with the gold that they are draw
ing out and hording for this very
business. Thus putting another in
famous tax burden upon the people
to enrich more bond holders from
the sweat aud toil of labor. Does
the administration intend to do this?
Watch these Democratic papers,
every few days they say "that Cleve
land and Carlisle do not want to
issue bonds if they can help it"
w hich shows that they intend to do
it and are preparing the people for
it. We dare these Democratic par
tisan sheets to denv this. Everv

A GENTLEMAN OF ENGLISH TASTES.
We clip the following from a
Cleveland mugwump organ:
"Mr. Bayard, the new ambassador
of the United States to the court of
St. James will be very popular in
London. For many years he was
regarded as leader of the Democratic
party in the American Senate, and
for a brief period was president of
that body. But he is rather of the
high aud dry philosophical school in
politics and did not enthuse the free
and independent electors of the
State. In 1884 he was put in run
ning for th. Democratic nominee fir
the Presidency, but the choice fall
ing upon President Cleveland, he
accepted office as Secretary of State
in the new President's Cabinet. Mr.
Bayard is well known in London,
and has hosts of friends here. He
is broad-minded enough to pay ac
knowledgement even to his" own
country where such acts are un
popular to the many good qualities
he finds in Englishmen, and con
fesses a partiality for English tastes.
Since Mr. Bayard is so opposed to
free coinage of silver, we suppose he
has quite a partiality for the Eng
lish gold standard idea of money. Yes
his appointment will be very accept
able to that class of Englishmen
who are prospering at the expense of
the Southern cotton planter. Eng
land wants a gold standard, hut she
has a silver standard in India where
she raises products that compete
with and regulate the price of ours.

THESE IMPORTANT OFFICERS?

(Continued from Issue of May 4th.)
Iist week we discussed Sec. 2G8S of the Election law. We showed
low the machine now appoints the Board of Countv Canvassers to do its
bidding. This week we discuss Spps
am-udments to the law if passed would break this up by putting the elec
tion of the Board in the hands of the people in each township. Read and
remember that the rule of the people is Democracy.
The Election Law As It Is.
Sec. 2G89. When the election shall
be finished, the registrars and judges,
of election, in the presence of such
of the electors as may choose to at
tend, shall open the boxes and count
the ballots, reading aloud the names
of the persons who shall appear ou
each ticket; and if there shall be two
or more tickets rolled up together,
or any ticket shall eontain the names
of more persons than such elector
has a right to vote for, or shall have
a device upon it, in either of these
cases such tickets shall not be num
bered in taking the ballots, but shall
be void; and the said counting of
votes shall be continued without ad
journment until completed and the
result thereof declared.
Sec. 2G90. The judges of election
in each township, ward or precinct
shall aDpoint one of their number or
the registrar to attend the meeting
of the board of . county canvassers,
as a member thereof,' and shall de
liver to the member who shall have
been so appointed the original re
turn or statement of the result of the
election in such township, ward 01
precinct; and the members of the
several townships, ward or precinct
boards of election, who shall have
been so appointed, shall attend the
meeting of the board of county can
vassers for such election in the
county in which they shall have been
appointed as members thereof.
The Amendments to Sees. 2689-90 provide that the Registrar aud
Judges of elei tion shall opeu the box aud count the vote for member of
Board of County Canvassers first and declare at once elected the
person receiving the highest vote. This elected officer at once takes the
oath and proceeds to assist the Registrar and Judges of elections tc open
the other boxes and count the voti. .This puts an officer at each precincf
elected by the people of that township to see that the, count is fair." It
further puts into the hands of a man (in whom the majority of the voters
cf the township have confidence) the election returns to carry them to the
county seat. It further makes this same man one of the County Canvass
ing Board. In this way the Board is made up of men who represents the
majority of their respective townships. Is not this fair? ..Can an honest
man be opposed to this? The man who is opposed to this is in favor of
cheating and stealing to keep himself in power against the will of the
people. He is not a Democrat, and he belies the name of the party
when he claims it.
The Amendment als) repeals that part of the law about a device not
being on the ticket and about it being on white paper. Thousands of
honest votes have been thrown out on these pretexts. In Brunswick
county the People's party got near 1,200 votes while the Democrats got
only 700. The returning Board threw every vote cast for the Populist
candidates out, claiming that the paper on which the ballots were printed
was not white. This was an absolute steal. We have seen the paper and
it was white, white as this paper.
No one will deny or try to disprove that there was wholesale cheating
and stealing in the late election. .Now if the Democratic Legislature . did
not approve of such method?, it should have shown its disapproval by
amending the law so as not to give an opportunity for it to be done again.
"We have converted the Wilmington Messenger, or rather it sees that it
can't defend the action of its party, so it now comes out and says that we
must have an honest election law. It may be something to the credit of a
chicken thief when caught with the stolen chicken in his hands to say
that he is opposed to stealing and will not do so again. That is he is op
posed to stealing if he is going to be caught at it.

DR. THOMPSON AT WADE5BORO.
We had only a few days notice of
the appointment of our esteemed
Lecturer, Dr. Thompson. Did not
even get the appointment in time to
have it published in "Our Home,"
but thanks to the proprietors of this
valuable little paper who sent out
posters all over the county of Anson
announcing the speaking. Nothing
like a full turnout of the "true blue"
Alliancemen of the noble old county
of Anson, the home and birth place
of the brave hearted Polk, but a
very good crowd present under the
circumstances. We were not dis
appointed in the speaker. he dis
cussed "very forcibly the crying ne
cessity of keeping the order in tact
as an organization. His arguments
were backed by the purest logic and
applied with apt illustrations. He
began by giving us encouraging
news from other portions of the State
assuring us that the Alliance is not
"dead" as our enemies, the politician
claim. His sarcastic review of the
low action of the Legislature in re
gard to the Alliance charter was
humorous in the extreme. He struck
some heavy blows that made the fur
fly from those who have proven
traitors to the Order. He said they
reminded him of the old negro who
when he could not ride the mule at
tempted to kill it. He then ''got
down to business" and brought to
our minds the leading piopositioi s
of the Alliance. He discussed the
widespread financial depression, its
causes and remedy. He suceeded,
with aty one who has a thimble full
of brains, to fully demonstrate the
utter falicy of the arguments adduced
by the plutocrats and their pals.
When we speak of the leading
propositions ot'the Alliance we ft-el
satisfied we are understood by the
brethren. We mean of course the
great question of finance.
Dr. Thompson handled this ques
tion in a most masterly way. We
will not.attempt to quote him, but
will assure you Mr. Ed. that Bro.
Thompson sowed eood seed that will

is trimmed with wide satin ribbon,
shaded from cri rson. to moss-green,
draped about the crown and arranged
in bows front and back; on each side
of the front bow is placed a stiff
bunch of variegated crocuses, tied up
with a cluster of leaves in the centre.
The principal decoration of the white

forming spreading wings on each

wire is sown to the edge of the lace

Ja'kson, that staunch defender of

Again he says: "The agricultural
interest of our country is so essen

not in their actions agree, with thene
