to reply to our editorials statin" the
fact that but few emigrants came
South, and giving the reasons why
th$- did not come. We gave the
facts and figures. To this The
Xorth Carolinian docs not attempt
to reply, but writes a lot of stuff,
saying, that we slander the Southern
people. The eJitor apjieals to prej
udice instead of using argument;
the following is a sample : "I'alsied

words so foully damning of the good
people of North Carolina. Words
that are not true, and that seek to
put a fa'se brand upon us in the
eyes of the world. Xo
editor who loves his State ought to

he ignorant of how the bosses tried
to bulldoze, dominate, and browbeat
every man who would not defy and
denounce them at once ? Is he ig
norant of how, after all this, these
same political scoundrels and thieves
tried to steal the votes, and pervert
the will of our people who had the
manhood and courage to vote their
convictions in the teeth of such op
position ? Yes, is he ignorant of all
this, or has he turned to be the will

now trying to hide it all by appeal

demagoguery ? es we stated facts
and figures. We have and can prove
every statement we made. We will
argue with a man who tries to anni1
in the interest of truth, but the
demagogues and hypocrites, we will
denounce, b urther on in the same
editorial, The Carolinian says, that
whenever the condition in North
Carolina gets to be such as we pic
ture, that the editor will leave the
State. As a matter of fact he has
already left the State. Was it the
condition made him leave or the
anxiety for public pap ? Let it be
known that Mr. Daniels got his
oflice in Washington from Hoke
Smith, the man who hired ruffians
to break up political meetings in
Georgia, and throw rotten eggs when
they had no argument. The time
might have been when "honest Joe"
would have condemned these tliirie?.
but when a man is enjoying some of
the fruits of a corruptly gotten vic
tory, it is hard for him to see things
in their true light. The time has
been when the style of argument (?)

ANOTHER "CALAMITY HOWLER."
Lady Macbeth Caldwell, who tried
to screw up the courage of the Leg
islature to the point of committing
murder on the Farmers' Alliance,
(the only organization that has ever
given the people any practical re
lief), the editor who has been hur
rahing for gold bugs, has at last be
gun to get religiou. In his paper a
few days ago he said :
"In the New York Sun of a few
days ago was an interesting article
upon the agricultural depression in
Great Britain. The figures are given
and the decline of agriculture in
England appears from them to have
borne a close relation, through re
cent years, in the degree of its pro
gress, to that in the United States.
The whole world seems to be down
with the same complaint farmers'
profits decreasing and the value of
farming lauds depreciating. The
complaint is confined to no country
nor to any particular section of any.
The farmer on the fertile plains of
Kansas howls as loud as his brother
on the red hills of North Carolina.
The more rapidly the world increases
its population, the more mouths
there are to be fed, the more manu
factures multiply and the more cus
tomers the farmer finds for his prod
ucts, the lower the prices sink and
the poorer he gets. Where is the
wise man who will rise up and tell
us all what is the matter ?"
Is it possible that Lady Macbeth
i3 not "wise" enough to tell the poor
deluded calamity farmers what is the
matter ? It was one time laziness,
the farmers did not work ; next it
was overproduction, the farmers were
working too much ; and now "she"
confesses "she" -don't know what is
the matter. "She" is now about
enough under conviction to start an
Alliance school and learn the a b c's
COULD BREAK THE GAMBLERS.
e were UrivniL'' out across the
i - -
country a few days since. At every
plantation we passed the jeople were
at work. There was the corn field,
enough planted to make a plenty aud
ome to spare; there was the wheat
Geld, there was the place for the pea
crop, there was the place for the po
tato crop, &c. And too there was
the cotton field, U12 only hope of the
iarmer lor any money next fall. It
made our heart sad as we looked at
br ave honest men toilin and sweat
ing to create wealth, when we know-
almost to a certainty that their cot
ton will not bring next fall the cost
of making. When we knew that at
that very moment that the cotton
gamblers in the New lork exchange
were fixing the price of crop of cot
ton tor next fall, then we thought
for a moment how the farmers could
stop work and go into the rambling
s'".s for one year themselves,
crush out the gamblers in Wall
Street, starve the world for cotton
and themselves be richer at the ex
pense of other people at the end of
the year. You ask if this is possi
ble. Let us see. If every farmer
would to-morrow plow up his cotton
crop and could buy cotton futures
on just as many bales as he intended
to make, and do this before the
gamblers found out what he was up
to, he would have them beaten for
once at their own game. He could
stop work and go out under a shade
tree and sit there all the summer and
in the fall he would have seme of
the nioney which the gamblers have
stolen from him back into his own
pocket. The situation would be that
the farmers would have a contract
with the gamblers to deliver about
8,000,000 bales of cotton next fall.
But where could the gamblers get it
when the farmers did not raise any.
The price of cotton would go shoot
ing up to .-20 cents a pound at least
and then the gamblers not being able
to deliver the cotton would have to
pay the farmers the difference be
tween the price they bought at 7
cents and 20 cents, which would
make a clear profit of 13 cents a!
pound to every farmer, not on what
he did work and raise, but on what
he did not raise. In short each far
mer would get 13 cents a pound (for
doing nothing) on what he intended
to raise. It is true the world would
be much poorer next fall, but the
farmers would be richer. Would
the remainder of the world blame
the farmers if they were to do this ?
If we had autocratic power, we think
we wouia issue the order to-morrow
to every farmer in the South and
teach the remainder of the world a
lesson for once.

BENJAMIN OF THE
KOIiPAVK AM i-AKKOK.
Pray tell us why the President of
these United States goes to New
York to consult a lot of gamblers
and money sharks about the finan
cial policy of this goyernment ?
A "BUSINESS MAN'S" REMEDY.
A prominent and successful busi
ness man was discussing with us the
scarcity of mouey at the dinner table
of the Hotel Keunou a few days
siuce. lie said : "1 can tell you one
way that more money can be put in
circulation. If the U. S. Govern
ment would guarautee depositors of
banks that they should not lose if
the bank brakes, there are millions
of dollars that would at otfC3 be de
posited in the banks of the country
to be loaned out.'.' We told him that
while this was true (and that we
agreed with him that the govern
ment ought to guarantee depositors
and hold the bank official responsi
ble,) this would net relieve the situa
tion. ' First the people who need the
money worst ca,n not give the securi
ty that a bank would require, and
that if they could, that there are
few business (certainly not farming)
that can afford to pay the present
rate of interest on borrowed money.
The men who liave strength and
muscle and who are toiling every day
and creating the produce that
makes the country rich are the poor
men and the men who need mouey
but have none. Mouey in banks do
them but little good. Iu fact if they
borrow it the debt will grow bigger
and bigger and they will be debt
ridden and interest bled all their
lives. What they need is a supply
of money equal to the demand. A
sufficient volumn of eurreucy so that
their labor and their produce will
bring a good price in the markets.
When this is so, they will not need
to borrow money. They will simply
work -for it. They work for it now
but don't get it How about the
law of "supply and demand. There
is a demand for more money. ' The
government should supply it

a At- 1 iir . i
iu uinu, now coma .nr. t irady sug
gest with any degree of accuracy
that 1 had not granted "honesty of
purpose and good intentions' to him,
seeing that 1 had set iorth, as philo
sophically as I could devise, ceitain
principles tending to constrain other
men to construe words aud deeds in
the most favorable light?" Certainly
your readers will recall that I said:
"Every animal is the physiological

but he is not like us because his sur
roundings are different.
These things being so by nature,
who shall blame Mr. (irady for de
monstrating, chameleon-like, the hue
of Washington City Democracy?" in
deed, I thought I had built assort of
city of refuge wherein I expected un
friend to lind shelter and remain,
safe from the pursuit of the public
wrong. But despising my "favora
ble light" and magnanimous grant
of "honesty of nurnose." he has nre-
ferred to stand without the cate and
defend himself upon his own ground.
lowever rash his attempt at lustifi-
cation may be thought, it is now two
ate for counsel or regrets. Look
ng the situation in the face, we can
only inquire whether a .good run
would not have been better than the
stand he has taken.
Mr. Grady says: "Members who
have no clerks are prevented from
giving proper attention to the duties
tor which they are supposed to have
been elected. The calls' on tliem in
person and by letters for oifiees, new
mail routs, postoffiees, seed, loans of
money, information on almost every
imaginable subject: for
news and interviews by the array of
correspondents in the city, and par
ticularly in the Capitol, while the
two Houses are supposed to be at
work, not only render if impossible
for them to study and to 'understand'
and intelligently discuss the meas
ures the people are so much interest
ed in, but are a fruitful cause of
what so often blocks legislation,
"no quorum. ' Evidently a choice
must be made between polite atten
tion to individual jobs and the more
serious attention to the public busi
ness. The public business, it seems,
is neglected for private jobs. The
public pays for service it never re
ceives. Private individuals receive
the beuefits of the public expendi
tures. Instead of doing honest serv
ice for the public who foots the bill,
it is the habit ot Congresssmen to
receive the public funds in considera
tion of private jobs, performed with
the view to increasing their popu
larity tor another term Ihey do
this even if it causes "no quorum"
and the consequent neglect of pub
a -lit i
oe ousmess, ana tne memoers re
main too ignorant to "understand
ana intelligently uiscuss the meas
ures the people are so much inter
ested in." They are hirelings hold
ing their master's purse and work
ing for their own interest to the neg
lect of their mastei's welfare; men
who sell and take pay for what they
will not deliver, and have power to
force you to pay more to obtain what
you have already paid for, a sort of
brigands "for the public" good," as
we shall presently see.
"Oncresult, says Mr.. Grady, "is
that every Congress takes the ex-
travigant appropriation bills of its
predecessor as its model and basis of
legislation, being unable to make
original investigations, and often
afraid to make reductions, the re
sults of which cannot be foreseen."
That is to saj-, members of Congress
choose to be ignorant for revenue
and at the public's expense. There
comes also the suggestion that the
public, have been fools at their own
expense for continuing such repie
sentatives. You gather further that
the cry against Reed's Billion Dol
larism in the rnsTth of Democratic
Congressmen was wholly lacking in
"honesty of purpose" and was ut
tered "for revenue only." There
can be no economy in expenditures
so long as public servants are too
much engrossed with private affairs
to attend to public business.
- "I voted, says Mr. Grady," to al
low members clerks, so that they may
serve their constituents more effi
ciently, and save the , public money
by shortening the sessions : of Cong
ress. A small reduction in the "num
ber of days will save more than "the
clerks will cost." In view of the
service we receive, his first reason is
excellent. We need better service.
In view of the extravagance of his
Congress, his second reason is un
commonly good. We need economy.
But will the allowance for clerk hire
shorten the session and conduce to
economy! Will it restrain' members

loth day of last .September, Mr.
(irady, while speaking at Warsaw,
said as excuse for failure in some
performance contrary to northern
nciiuuicui, iuui me oouin is still a
conquered people." I feared then
what is evident now, that Mr. Grady
was a conquered man. One blast of
this north wind un-nerves him polit
ically, and he quietly turns and darts
straws with it. The man who we
uepend upon to stand in the way of
the progress of evil, even if he could
succeed in overcoming evil with
good, attempts in his despair to over
come evil with evil. He tells Us our
estimate of his sturdiness was incor
rect. He illustrates in his surrender
the condition of "prostration with
excitement," and thinks it necessary
to do something, whatever that some
thing may be. Here's the sentiment
of Mr. Grady's explanation of his
vote: When you cannot suppress
an evil, help it on. When you can
not suppress an evil, heln it nn
When you cannot economize, extra v

Caesar's bosom friend, and to-day
every lover or morality, every advo
cate of temperance, every preacher
of Christianity would say, "seeing
we cannot abolish these evils any

we should probabljr have had no ex

It is a good thing that the Demo

the President has to overlook "and

what they do, and that he will give
the black eye to their bad jobs. We
are glad that he has firmness enough
to sometimes set down on them, as
was the case in the fraudulent pen

Especially is this true if the neck is

than a pink tone. In other words
the brunette skin best suits such
shades. Kemember( too, that rich

OOO )rw ry's Tlii-iving l.uiu-.
The Pension Department at Wash
ington believes that it has uncartht'd
stupendous pension frauds.
An attorney of Norfolk- Vn
named W. K. D re wry, now under
arrest, is charged with securing
fraudulent pension claims by the
wholesale, using as his instruments,
in many cases, colored women and
men who could not read or write.
About twelve months ago Secre
tary Xoble ordered three cases drop
ped from the pension-rolls that Drew
ry had secured, and later on the lat
ter was debarred from practice.
Wheu the present Administration
came into power a thorough investi
gation was made into the cases that
Drewry had secured, and when it
was concluded a few days ago it was
discovered that about M per cent, of
the cases had handled under the act
of June 27, 1890, were secured
through the filing of false declara
tions. The extent of the frauds can be
understood when it is stated that ICO
cases wen; granted, and that every
one of them carried arrears. The
importance of the discoveries neces
fitated prompt action, and A. I). Al
