the federal and State boxes. It is a
cunnirg trick, put last fall in op
eration in tin eastern counties, where
the Congressional boxes were often
separated from the State and county
boxes. Our western friends do not
realize this, and would not tolerate
in their own eounties, any plai of
the soi t. The South Carolina law
makers the separation of the boxes
imperative, in this regard being dif
ferent from the North Carolina
amendments, which give the option
to the judges of election to private
separate polling places, or not, as
may be thought best.
Of eourse, the purpose of the di
vis'oi of the following places is to do
away with the scrutiny of the feder
al supervisors over the methods of
cheating, in the elections of State
officers. But this evasion will not
do. The scheme is too thin and can
be well enough seen through. It
does not take a federal supervisor to
catch on to the frauds committed.
We can all see them here in the east.
It is our duty as a journalist to turn
on the light, so that the whole State
of North Carolina may see whither
we are drifting. It is not safe to
follow too far the lead of South Car
olina. lion. J. (J. Sibley, Populist Con
gressman from Pennsylvania, bus
donated his salary for two years,
$ 1 0,000 to the reform cause, He got
to Congress and found that he could
not do any thing for the relief of the
people till reinforcements came to
help him. So he has donated his
salary to be used in spreading reform
papers knowing that that is the most
effective way to do the work. Let
every retornier take a lesson irom
this. You are not able to give $10,-J
000 for reform literature but you
can give 1. So pick out one of
your neighbors you think ought to
read Tae Caucasian, but who is
either too or too indifferent to sub
scribe; and send it to him.
SOME ADVICE GIVEN US.
One of these know-all know-nothing
fellows who reads only the parti
san papers stop ua the other and con
descended to give us a little advice,
lie said: "If you would advise the
jeople to plant half as much cotton
instead of clamoring for more mo
ney, you would be doing the country
a genuine service. If half ot the
cotton were destroyed, it would dou
hie the price and the other half
would bring as much money. Don't
you remember that a few years ago
the chintz bug got into the wheat
out West and destroyed about half
of the crop aud that the price soou
doubled ? You ought to remember
that the law of supply and demand
governs all these things." So we ad
mitted that the supply and demand
controlled the price of all things.
This seemed to astonish him. lie
looked at and was all attention.
We then proceeded to explain to
him how the goldbugs, in 1873, got
into our mouey field and destroyed
half of our money crop, which had
the same effect on . the money that
the chintz bug had on the wheat,
that is, it raised its price at least 50
per cent, so that it now cost at least
50 per cent more labor or fruits of

In an article published by the At
lanta Constitution from a Raleigh
correspondent, it is said that Mr.
Butler made the statement that all
parties would become corrupt after
holding power for a long time, even
the People's party. Why should he
pervert the truth? I heard Mr. But
ler make the same declaration, with
a proviso, which the correspondent

which was if the Farmers' Alliance
organization went down there would
be nothing to hold any party in

must wait a week for the truth.

At'a regular meeting of Franklin
county Farmer' Alliance, held April
lbth 1S93, the following resolutions
iiereas. The last (ieneral As
sembly of North Carolina attempted
to repeal the charter of the North
Carolina Farmers State Alliance, and
finally passed amendments to said
charter which are entirely without
precedent in the history of charters
and organizations. Therefore be it
1st. That we regard this unwarran
ted, uncalled for, tvritiinieal act as a
direct blow at the N C. F. Slate Al
liance, an outrage upon common jus
tice, and an insult to every member
of our noble organization.
2nd. That we consider it an expres

Mk. Emtok: We have read and
heard a great deal about election
frauds for the past five months, and
not fully understanding what election
frauds were, we would be pleased to
have some well informed Reader of
Tub Caucasian to explain to us
the real meaning of fraud at
the NovemlKT election. Here about
75 of the citizens at ths box were not
allowed to vote, was that fraudf No
they were not of the right faith.
That of course was not fraud, it was
Democratic. On the first Monday
of this month they had a little one
horse municipal election here There
was no polities in it, but it was be
lieved, and in fact, known that some
of the candidates were in favor of
raising the tax when it is already too
high. So on the morning of the
election some of th tax payers wlm
are tired of Loo rcl", put up two
low tax men to be voted for in lieu
of two of the regular nominees. That
started them to yelling, "Third par

scared some of the low tax men into

C. May 13, '93, Dear Sir: I see in
this weeks issue of your valuable pa
per a notice that you will not dun
any one and that when a subscriber's
time expires unless otherwise noti
fied the paper will stop.
Now, this is right, for I never had
any sympathy, love or even respect
for the present newspaper law. It
has caused me some trouble and cost
me some money, and I am prompted
just here to give a little experience
with a leading Democratic paper
then printed at the Capitol of the
State, but since under a new name.
Some several years ago I subscribed
to said paper for 12 months, when I
expected it would be stopped, but it
was not so. I paid another year
and requested that when the time ex
pired to stop, however it did not and
knowing according to the law I
would have to pay. So I wrote a re
ceipt for another year's subscription
and sent with it another subscrip
tion $2 stating in said receipt that it
was a part of the contract when the
time expired that the paper should
stop, but to my disgust it did not
stop having received a dun or two
every year, and as the paper was
continued after this last year was
out and I had the receipt as stated
above, I concluded . to rebel, so I
wrote him I would not pay for the
paper any longer and told him what
kind of a receipt I had, so finally I
go: it stoped. Respt.

"Whereas the last Legislature of
North Carolina, without cause, did
attempt to crush the Alliance and
Business Agency of this btate by ;
the passage of a bill by the House
without notification or discussion,
repealing the charter of the Alliance
of said State of North Carolina, and
whereas the Senate, though giving
more time for the consideration of
the bill, did refuse to recognize the
amendments to the charter as offered
by President Marion Butler, which
amendments met every stated objec
tion to the provisions of the charter
as it was, but offered such amend
ments as placed such restrictions
upon the said State Alliance as never
before was known to be enacted in
reference to the charter of any cor
poration in this or any other State,
therefore be it
Resolved, That this Alliance con
demns the action of said Legisla
ture and calls upon all Alliancemen
to rally to the support of the State
Business Agency, which is the back
bone of our order, and that we will
liberally aid in replacing any fund
that may be withdrawn by any mem
ber or members in this county.
Resolved, That a copy of the
above preamble and resolutions be
forwarded to The Progressive Farmer

Mr. Editor. At a regular meet
ing of Royal Oak Alliance No. 2024
held on the loth of April 1893 the
following resolutions was unanimous
Resolved 1st, That we the nfem
bers of Royal Oak Alliance do hereby
tender our thanks to Almighty God
in the most humble manner that not
a single member of this Alliance had
any thing to do with electing or
counting in the last Legislature of
2nd, That we condemn as being
undemocratic, unpatriotic and un
called for, such as tampering with
the charter of the State Alliance and
voting away the peoples money to
frolic on and to pay for fiddling.
3rd. That such Legislators as voted
to repeal said charter or to amend
the same with a desire to cripple or
destroy the order or to squander the
peoples money are not worthy of the
name of a statesman.
4th, That what little mite we have
contributed to the Business Agency
fund we intend it to remain there!
5th, That the above resolutions be
forwarded to the Progressive Farmer
and Goldsboro Caucasian for pub

the election, and that of course was
Democratic. On that book was the
name of a negro whose name has
been marked "gone" for two years
and so appeared on the book the
morning of the election. During
the day the light or eraser, or some
thing of the kind faded out the word
"gone" and they trotted him in and
voted him for lb g. o. p. ticket.
That was not fraud, it waa Demo
cratic. A young man whoso home
was formerly here but who has been
iving in another township for three
years and who is registered in auoih-
r township and voted in it for two
years past, ami voted in last fall
election was trotted in and voted 1m
cause bis name still appeared on the
old book. Was that fraud ir Dem
ocratic? Can some one tell uf, was
fraud in it or is all this Democratic?
Some of them had so little brains as
to go to the defeated candidates af
ter the election and try to smooth
the rascality over with them by tell
ing them that their opposition was
not against them, but to the mass or
men that had brought them out.
