A TRAITOR'S REWARD
Alliancemen will remember that
just on the eve of the late election
that a circular was sent out by J. F.
Tillman, (then connected with the
National Lecturer Bureau of the
Alliance) advising all Alliacceinen
to vote the Democratic ticket The
subscribers of the National Econo
mist (who lived in the country) got
this circular as a supplement to that
paper." The circular was not in the
copy of the Economist that came to
The Caucasian office and we
understand that the same is true
of the copies to all alliance
and reform papers. This was to
prevent detection in time for the
reform press to denounce the par
tisan circular of an officer who had
turned traitor. It is also charged
that this same J. F. Tillman was
lying around National Democratic
headquarters in New York giving all
the information that be could. It
is even charged that he furnished
the address of the members and
officers of thousands of : sub-lodges
to whom Democratic campaign lit
erature was Bent. We thought he
got his pay in money, but we see
that President Cleveland has just
appointed him Register of the Treas
ury. This is paying pretty high
for a very contemptible and unre
liable man. Mr. Cleveland has
thrown away this appointment, for
it will not make him or his party a
single vote. Tillman has no follow
ing and is not respected by a single
Allianceman in America. He could
not get into a single Alliance Lodg3
iu North Carolina, and we trust no
where else. The National Alliance
Bat down on him with contempt at
Memphis. Even Dr. Macune would
not defend him. . Mr. Cleveland has
insulted every true allianceman by
rewarding a traitor to the organiza
tion. DEMOCRATIC BOSSES NOW SPEAK
WELL OF REPUBLICANS.
Let the ordinary man who has
heard the railings and rantings of
the partisan bosses read the follow
ing clippings ;
"District Attorney Price retires
with clean hands and a good record.
He is a man of preeminent ability
and has made an acceptable officer
both to the government and the peo
ple. He voluntarily retires six
months before the expiration of his
term, thus setting a good example to
his fellow Republican office-holders.
Our best wishes follow him into pri
vate life. Webster's Weekly."
"All this is entirely well deserved.
Capt. Price is all that is said of him
as a lawyer, and his conduct of his
office has been; unexceptionable, it
has . never been alleged by any one
that -he failed of his duty to the gov
ernment, and yet he has dealt merci-

IN MOTION THE SPEECH IN FULL.
President J. H. Lingle, Enq.,
said: "Ladies and gentlemen, on
behalf of the Chatham Literary Un
ion, I will -state that Mr. Powderly is
sick, and is not here on that account
to introduce the speaker of the even
ing, but in his stead we have a gen
tleman high ap in tLe ranks of the
Knights of Labor ; an official with a
reputation not only in this city but
in this state; and as we have been
eager to have labor organizations re
presented here, we have procured
him, Mr. A. W. Wright, who will in
troduce the speaker, who is a man of
the people, for the people and stauds
by the people, and who will speak
tonight for the People's party. Mr.
Wright will now introduce the speak
Mr, A. W, Wright said: "Ladies
and gentlemen, it is not necessary
in introducing a speaker of the re
putation of General Weaver, to say
much about the man; you are not
here particularly to study a man's
personality, but to listen to what he
may have to say.
"This has been a somewhat inter
esting and unique debate so far, aad
I have had the pleasure of listening
to the two previous speakers and feel
inclined to give as my judgment of
the first speaker's effort that Colonel
Watterson's apology .for being a
Democrat ought to be accepted, and
more especially as he does not seem
to be very much fa
GEN. J. B. WEAVER.
"As to the next speaker, I think it
fortunate for me at all events, that
it is a good thing that Mr. Coawell
preceded General Weaver, because I
think when you listen to General
Weaver's speech tonight you will see
that it is a complement of Mr. Con-
well's speech of the other evening,
and I think that you will see that it
is simply an attempt to carry into
practical politics the Christian prin
ciples which Mr. Con well enunciated
from this platform.
"The People's party believe that
Christianity is something more than
a lot of theories; they believe that it
can be brought into practical politics;
they believe that the sermon on the
Mount is not a lot of glittering gen
eralities, nor as an eminent Ameri
can statesman would say, an irrides-
eent dream; they do believe in the
decalogue, and not only in the deca-
ogue, but in the sum of all the com
mandments that you should love your
neighbor as yourself, and do unto
your neighbor as you would have
your neighbor do unto you, and that
can be applied to practical politics:
and as you listen to peneral Weaver
you will see he will show ' you how
these laws can be applied in your
"It 13 not necessary to say more
I say, when you listen to general
Weaver. I am sorry that Mr. Con-
well is not here, I should liko to see
him disappointed you know he said
he had listened to the whole of Mr.
Watterson's speech to find out what
the Democratic party intended to do
for the workingman, and found out
just what they intended to do noth
ing, and that he expected to hear
nothing from the Republican party
and less when he heard fJom the can
didate of the Populist party. Now
if he were here tonight I think he
would be agreeably disapointed. and
I think he would find that the Popu
list party had something to say in
the interest of the laboringman. But
I will not anticipate General Weaver
or take away from him any argument
that he might use; I will simply leave
him with you and leave you to decide
whether he makes out a case lor the
People's party entitling that . party
to the support of the workingmen of
this country. After you have listen
ed to him I want you to be frank and
fair with yourselves, as honest men
and honest women, and do not allow
any preconceived ideas or party pre-

Of course he represents the minority

'He is a slave who dare not be in the
right with two or three." Now Gen

Dart v. but you know the" the minori

grown into a pretty large majority
party today, and when we nna me
same thing has taken plaee regard to
parties in politics, we haye no reason
to fear that they will not triumph
now as they triumphed then and
since then. I leave General Wea
ver in you hands and I am satisfied
yon will have a treat and the best of
the debate tonight. ' (Applause. -
Mr. Weaver said: - Mr. Chairman,
Ladies and Gentlemen The most in
spiring sight which ever met my guze
was when I beheld .a .vast army of
100,000 men or more, which had just

received marching orders.
weary months they had
camp taking lessons in the grim arts
of war, undergoing discipline, learn
ing to obey, practicing the manual,
listening to the notes of the bugle.
Grim lessons, it is true, but prophe
tic of scenes which were to follovr.
Now all was tumult and activity.
The file's trill note and the roll of
the drum, the clanking of sabres,
the folding of tents, the rumbling of
artillery wagons, the galloping of
horses, the hurrying to and fro of or
ders, the marshalling of companies,
regiments, brigades, divisions, and
finally the stretching out of the migh
ty host across the valley and over
the hill to meet the enemy in mortal
Now this was the heroic goal to
which all their camp liFe had been
but the index. Well, humanity is a
vast army, and it has its camping
seasons, its great marches ana its
decisive battles. I congratulate this
audience tonight upon the fact that
the vast throngs of civilization are
once more under marching or
ders. "There's a sound of swelling waters,
There's a voice from out the blue
Where the Master his arm is reveal
ing; Lo ! the glory of the morning
Lights the forehead of the new
And the towers of the old time are
"There is a tramping in the cities
Where the people march along,
And the trumpet of justice is call

On the forehead of the wrong.
And the battlementsJoBabylon are

How we waited for his light
In the old days of doubting and fear
How we watched among the shad
Of the long and weary night
For his feet upon the mountain ap
But at last the command has gone
fort to the industrial forces the world
"Lift high the banner,
Break every chain,
Wake from the thraldom of story;
Like the torrent to the river,
And the river to the main,
Forward to liberty and glory !"
For ages the human family seem
to have been encamped and at in
tervals thev have made grand march
es toward civilization and to the fin
al achievement of the Sermon on the
Mount. We are today at the com
mencement of a revolution, and I
say to you brethrrn tonight that it is
a greater revolution than any I have ,
every know anything about, although
I witnessed the great one that took
place when I was a lad, I remember
that revolution and I remember what
it was about that it was a great bat
tle for the freedom of labor; but that
revolution was nothing compared
with the one we are in today. Dis
guise it, as you will or may, the pub
lic mind today is broken up as it
never was before, and upon the very
identical questions that brought
about the revolution that you and
participated in when we were
I had a talk once with Wendell
Phillips at his home in Boston, and
he made this remark to me: "Mr.
Weaver, there were but few people
who understood the underlying phil
osophy of that anti-slavery move
ment. In its last and best analysis,
it was a battle for the freedom o!
labor. The war extededfhe nomin
al area of freedom fi.-v enough to in
clude the black man, but it did uot
make him free, nor will he or his
white neighbor ever be free until both
he and they are permitted, under
the laws of this country, to accumu
late in their own pockets the wealth
which r they produce" (Ap
plause.) !Now there was a gentlemen born
with a silver spoon in his mouth, who
never knew what want was from his
cradle to his grave, and yet he spent
all his sublime life in working for the
down trodden and the lowly, and for
those who had no helper . Why, it
only takes two or three such men to
redeem the whole human race, and
to make it honorable to belong to it.
(Applause.) That was the type of a
man he was. I said, "Why do you
say, Mr. Phillips," for he had just
made the remark to me, "that the
battle for the freedom of labor has
yet to be fought in this country!
Why do you say that V . "I say it
because the corporate power, the(!)
money -power in this country gained
by that war, all that the slave power
lost, and ten fold, more; and the real
battle for the freedom of labor will
have to be fought in this country
against the corporate slave driver as
it was against the chattle slave
driver." - k ...
And with this introduction I shall
now lay down some things which I
want to have you . bear in mind
whilst I discuss the questions before
US. - K '
There are three things essential to
human life on this globe: ;
The earth, the atmosphere and the
sunlight. " ' - ;
There are three institutions neces
sary to the felicity andT welfare of
the human family: '
The first is the family, the second
is the church, and the third is the ci
-Thtre are thrre fundamental divi
sions of human effort:
The producer, the manufacturer
and thrt '.iistributors.
There is another trinity the cam
mrrcial inntrtann nt necessary in the
The first i money, . the second is
facilities for transportation, and the
third is facilities for the transmis
sion of intelligence. And now there
is acother earthly trinity which we
must by no means lose' sight of,
which relates to the rights of pro
perty. That which nature provides is
the eommon property of all God's
children, that which the individual
creates belongs to the individual;
that which the community createe
belongs to the community. (Ap
plause.) With these fundamental state
ments before you, allow me in the
next place to clear away some of the
rubbish has been thrown in our way
in this debate. The Rev. Mr. Con
well, and I read his speech with a
gn at deal of satisfaeion and interest,
yet there are some things in it that
ought to receive my attention. He
says he is not a member of the pro
hibition party, because that is a one
idea party: he is not a member of
the Republican or Democratic par
ties, because they simply want his
vote; and he could not think of being
a member of the Populist party, j
Well, I hardly know where to elassi-!
fy the talented brother if he does
not belong to any of these organiza
tions. It is possible that he ought
to be located with the lost tribes, of
Isreal. (Laughter and ap
plause). Now my friends, the Church has
my profound admiration . and res
pect. It is the first budding blossom
of the family, and it should be the
great training. school of this world
for the development and finish of
the highest type of .citizenship. It
is a great naval academy where we
may study the chart and the compass,
and get our correct bearings, and
where we can learn to navigate the
dark and perilous, sea of human life.
Its chart has been penciled by navi
gators who have sailed over eveiy
stotm-swept sea, doubled every cape,
explored every estuary, every gulf,
and every land-locked harbor known
to this sincursed earih. Ah ! it is
the West Point of Christ's militant
army where cadets are taught and
disciplined for the ever serious con
flicts of life, and the Church should
turn them out by the million ready
to do battle against the giant wrongs
that are oppressing the poor wrongs
that are in conflict with the author
ity with the teaching, with the, love,
with the mercy of the Nazarine, who
is at once the great Teacher of the
Church and the Captain of its salva
tion. The Uhurch why, it is every
thing to the world, and it ought to
be; and let me tell you my friends,
Christianity is more than, a theory,
it is a life, and its theater of opera
tions is in this world. (Applause-)
The Mister taught us to pray, "Thy
kingdom come, Thy will be done on
earth as it is in heaven." (Applause
The Church should be an organized
army seeking to establish God's
kingdom on this earth by every
legitimate means, of which legisla
tion is one of most powerful today in
civilized countries. And I may say
here that just so long as the Church
of Christ is in harmony with and
gives countenance to an industrial
system which is at war with the
principles of Christianity and just
so long as the Church becomes yoke
fellow with the god of this world, and
consents to cast lots for the invest
ments of the crucified poor, it may
never expect the poor to seek refuge
at its alters. (Applause.) ,
You may not, you cannot deceive
the world, though you may deceive
yourselves. They know that usury
is inconsistent with the teachings of
the Master and of the Sermon on the
Mount; they know that corporate
greed, that is wringing the very life
blood out of the poor, is not in har
mony .with the teachings of ' Jesus
Christ, (applause) and just as long
as the Church and Church members
set back in comfortable pews and
wink and become the partner and
share in the spoils of the oppressor,
they come beneath the maledictions
of the Master, and must accept the
visitations of His wrath. . (Ap
Of one of the seven Churches of
Asia it was said, by the -Divine
Spirt said at ' a time when there
were men still living who had wit
nessed the ascension of the - Master
it was said of-that Church, "You
have the form of Godliness, but you
are void of its power." If I was to
be asked today believer as l am in
the divinity of the Church, in the in
spiration of the Bible, in the Divine
mission of the Church on earth if I
were'asked today what the great need
of the Christian Church is, I should
say,, the great want of the Christian
Church is, to be coverted to the doc
trines . of r Jesus Christ; (applause)
a conversion so deep and so thorough
that it would put the church to work
for the salvation of mei and women in
this world to rescue tue poor" from
their cruel taskmasters; that would
put the membership to work in this
world as the best training sehool to-
fit them for salvation in the the other.

The New .York corespondent of
the Kichmond Disiatch of. the , 2nd
instant states it is known among the
posted financiers of New" York that
Anthony J. Drexfcl, of the banking
firm of Drexel, Morgan & Co was
sent abroad as an ' informally lac
credited envoy . Cleveland. to the
huropean money , jMjwers.. That
Drexel's mission was, .in behaif of
Cleveland, to assure the monev kiugs
in the Old World that Cleveland's
administratiou would eiert its ut
most powers . to prevent any legisla
tion that would be, in.tb? interest. of
the debtor class.
The correspondent quotes a" New
York financier as saying that Dre!tet
was seni across tne ocean to - boost"
the present, administration -in. the
money centres, and .that Drexel,
Morgan & Co. were showing their
confidence in the administiatioii in
order to prevent ' the foreign money
powers holding American s4-curities
from presenting them for settlement
. This financier s-iid that the rumor
afloat, sometime, ago "that, Carlisle
contemplated tendering, his resigna
tion was due to the fact that schemes I
were devised, "above his head." and
that the Secretary of the Treasury
was merely a tigcireheadl " However,
the differences were adjusted,- or
patched up in some way. '
It is very elear indeed to- me that
this action of. the President is a d
iberate conspiracv entered ir.to with
thejnoney kings of . Europe, and all
of the power and influence at his
command will If h-uhT lit A&fi-At jut-
