Will this " A Farmer" please in- iorm the people what reason there r is for such a belief? Iflhe "misled Alliance-man and Populist Solomans" were rea Juig only the sheets fsuch as 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 er." I'.ut it is perfectly clear to "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 "misled Allianceman and Populist Solomon" who has been reading both sides understand this, but "A Farmer" who has been reading only his partisan sheet is being misled he does not know any better. If he will give his name some merciful and patriotic Alliancemau will sub scribe to The Cauoasian and send it to him for a while. 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. How much longer will the Ameri can farmer suffer such folly at his expense?

TWO IMZOZRIEj TJEiE li-AW" WHY DID THE LEGISLATURE THAT WOULD HAVE ALLOWED THE PEOPLE TO ELECT THESE IMPORTANT OFFICERS? THE AMENDMENT WAS DEMOCRATIC, THE PRESE.VT LAW IS THE ESMEME OF MAIHIXE POLITICS. riio Amendment Would I i'k Hole (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. ... t , ...... , (To be Continued.) GOLDSBOItO, X.

Asa result I give herewith a clipping from the Xew York sun: "President Cleveland's :ul vis.-rx Imv. ) told him that the only way to in tdnce the Western and South wetter-i Senators and Congressmen to consent to m rejieal of the Sherman law is to demonstrate to their constituents j that they are losing money every day that this law is in ojKrativu.

The Chicago bankers, it was said, are carrying out the same line of policy. Secretary Carlisle, in his talk with the bank Presidents, made his stand very clear. It is to be he roic treatment all the way through on the Sherman law, aud possibly by the noxt session of. Congress the silver mine owners and the adherents of silver in the Senate and the House will be ready to consent to a repeal of the law. The bank Presidents, replying to Secretary Carlisle, cordially inform ed him that they would be ready at all times to corporate with him in the successful administration of the financial policy of the Government." The Caucasian readers will ob serve, from the above, that the Southern aud Western people who hold to their free silver views are to receive heroic treatment at the hands of the Eastern plutocrats. Are the people of these two sections so desti tute of manhood that they will bow in humble submission to such a threat ? I am unwilling to believe that they are. The battle royal is yet to be fought (I do not mean with bullets) against this plutocratic element, be fore there will be any real prosperi ty in the South and "Wesi There must be an union of forces between these two sections, ia order to secure relief.

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 spring up in due time and bear fru't for the cause of reform. Come again Bro. and we will sing: All hail the name of Dr. T, Alliancemen of Anson will honor thee, Bring the good news from North, South, East and West That the iron hand of money to oppress Has been snatched from its victims in '93 The year of all the best, sweetest liberty.

One of them covers the bead down to the ears aud has an open brim and is worn slop ing backwards, so that the crown in closes the coil of hair at the back. Another is formed like a diminutive night-cap, and has a lace curtain put on at the back. I have seen A YOUTHFl'L MODEL. the former iu rice straw and crino line. The model in rice straw, blaek 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 crinoline bonnet consists of the two halves of a white Brussels lace veil, each Hu ted like an open fan and forming spreading wings on each side of the. low crown. Very fine wire is sown to the edge of the lace to give it the le mired stifnesa. A small bow of lace, with a large amethyst cabochon in the centre, is placed in front of the crown, and at the back a bow of pale peach blos som satin, with strings of the same. The best specimen of a bonnet with a curtaiu is in nut-colored straw, the abnormal addition being made of lace of the same color, worked with gold thread. It is mounted in a few gathers and has a little knot of moss-green velvet on the top. A bow shaped arrangement of the lace is placed in front of the brim aud just out on either side in flutes; two gold-headed pins are fixed in this bow. The little girl's hat above is of gathered rose colored surah, with bow of satin ribbon to match, and strings of the same W hat used to be party oelaret are all right for out of door dresses this summer. A very pretty costume is made of a lovely clear rose pink silk, the skirt flaring as the accom panying sketch indicates, and is dis tinctly a gracaful compromise be tween the clinging and the spread ing kinds. About the foot are two little double ruffles of pink satin, the top one finished under a cord, and with bits of satin bows at inter vals. The bodice is a round one. It is a yoke let in of guipure lace, either over the silk, or showing the A TRICK BODICE. neck through. There is a rouud collar of the silk, and the bodice around the yoke has a finish of the lace and a pretty knotting of catin ribbon. A broad bodice belt of satin is about the waist, reaching halfway to the bust line. The sleeves have big puffs extending nearly to the elbow, and from under them conies a smooth fitting sleeve. Such a dress is worn with a cream straw or chip hat, trimmed, with pink and cream shaded ribbon, and a tuft or so of pink aigrettes. Bronse low shoes and bronze pink stockings would be consistent.

Why this di.-iiiiiination-thi violation of organic law, again! an organization com j.ose.l wholly of fanners and labour! Again didn't they know they had violated Article l and Section 111 of the Constitu tion when they passed the pICM-nt amendments to the eharter.' i. e. "Xo Mate shall pass any law impair ing the obligations of eontinet." When the Mate ltusiness Ag iu y was organized, every man. that con tributed to that fund, t nt red into a solemn compact obligation nd eon tract with the organization, the amount paid in was never to be with- 1 drawn Willie the or!r:ininti..n Yet these aim ndno tits to the ehar ter expressly makes that contract mil aud void, n 1 too, without the petition of.UIV member of the older. so far as we can learn. Again it was a violation of the I let lar.-if ion of In. lep ndeuee. In that 'l'allndiutu" of our civil liberties, one of the grievances --one of the chargi s -on. of the nets, for which the King .va denounced, was "for taking away our charters, abolishing" nu which, to our farmers, one of our most lava orable law s." The Alliance as an or ganized body, agreed to pay its lec turers, were, iu fact indeed, the serv ants the laborers ef the ord r, mi l were to be paid out of the fund aris ing from the profits of the HusitiesM Agency. These amendiiletitrt abro gated that contract, yet other corpor ations, organizations, are allowed to pay their employees when, how nd out of whatsoever fund they pleaked. Why then, g ntlenn n, siioiild you discriminate? and in doing so vio late the Constitution the "Supremo law of the land," unless you wero opposed to the education of the mns ses, and iu favor of the principles de clared by Kctt of Prim, in his re port to the coal corporations, viz: "Th'-only way to Control labor, watt tn keep them ignorant and make them owe, today, for what they eat tomorrow." Vou claimed to be Dem ocrats, yet the founder of that honored institution, Jefferson, said: "The eiicouragemt ut and th difl'tisiou of information should be the creed of our political faith." Again, he says: "Agriculture, man ufacturers, commerce, and naviga tion, "the four pillars of our prosper ity, ;re the most thriving when left, most free to individual enterprise, to keep in all things within the pal. of constitutional power." (Jcti tlemen of the Assembly why did you not leave them free? Why attempt as you did to throttle the freedom ami demolish that "pillar" that b ar most of the weight of the structure? Ja'kson, that staunch defender of the people's rights, tell us "The spirit of equity, caution, compromiw, in which the constitution was formed requires that the jrreat interest of agriculture, commerce and manu factures should be equally favored." Again he says: "The agricultural interest of our country is so essen tially connected with every other, an 1 so superior in importance to them all." The Legislature did not in their actions agree, with thene auxiams. of these true patriot-, but iuslead they violated every article of the political creed as laid down by theie founders of Democracy in con nection with agriculture. If it was not ignorance, then it en!, because the acts was t y ran ni w re ntnu:t. des:tic aud an arbitrary exercise, of Legislature power. Traitorous, be cause the whole proceedings wan a violation of that allegiance, and that trust reposed in them by the ai euMural ela.-e. w ith n t one park ' of tru'i Democracy in it, but full of jjrc.it billows of the eon.-urninjr fire of oligarchy.

Mr. Ewtou: The following ap peared in the Concord Tim-;H of Afoil27tb: "Marion Kutler delivered a two hi. ur harangue of rotten politic at Mt. dilead last Thursday. He left tbt tiight. He had resolutions passed condemning the last legida tute. for amending the Alliance char ter. He also carried in hi pocket 'A little paper asking for money for ' gideonite brother Otho Wilson. We don't know how much of the hard earnings of Cabairus county farm ers he carried along with hint.'" Every man who heard yoti is ready to give the above the lie J. T. S. All we have to say in addition to the above is that every statemeat made by the editor of The Times is absolutely false. The Democratic honeymoon secnit t be about oyer. 4 V 1S
