When the machine does not deny
tiie correctness of the views of Sena
tor Vance nor dare to question his
democracy, yet express great fears
that the expression of such sound
pure democracy will help the l'eo-
I pie's party, it is a strong admission
'that the People's party is right or at
" least contains more democracy than
the Deinoera'ie party.
If Vance is right and the expres
ion of his views helps the People's
party, then the People's party must
right; if his positive views ex
pressed hurt the Democratic party
then the party must be wrong.
As strong and emphatic as Sena
er Vance's two letters on silver are,
lei the people take notice that there
one iuportant point on which he
ilul not express himself. He says he
is in favor of the free coinage of sil
ver hut he does not say at what
ratio. If this point had been raised
we believe ho would have spoken out
frankly and said he was in favor of
the honest and constitutional ratio

The X. Y. Times says that the de

some sense. It is needless to say
that the Times belongs to that class

and serves monopoly. We have

THE STRADDLER.
The straddling fellow who preside
over the three-headed newspaper at
Raleigh, in a recent issue ha.- the
following:
"Yesterday for the first time since
1800 a period of ..' years, a Demo
cratic Congress met in full political
accord with the president."
In the Very nxt column the same
straddler prints these paragraphs:
"There are some four hundred
men in Congress, and each man docs
his own thinking and in a measure
represents the local interest of his
people. There are probably fifty
gradations in their lines of thought,
and so for the present all is chaos
and confusion.
Nor will the message, of the Presi
dent clear the horizon. Wlmt ttit.
President proposes to say has al- i
ready been discounted, and though'
there are many w ho will stand with
hiru, it is hardly probable that a ma
jority in either house will he ready
to do so at an early date."
It is not easy to see, i? the con
gress is in "full political accord with
the President," how it can be "hardly
probable that a majority in either
house will not agree with him.
Of course the straddler is ary way
and all ways in the expression of his
opinions, and seeks to keep in with
both Vance and Hansom, whose
views and methods are as different
as can be. But the extracts given
show the distraction of the Demo
cratic party in congress and the
country. They have secured politi
cal supremacy by down-right lying,
pretending to the people that they
mean one thing, when they are de
termined to do another.
THE TURN COAT SECRETARY.
When Secretary Hoke Smith (a
member of Mr. Cleveland's cabinet)
was booming Cleveland for President
in his paper, the Atlanta .Journal)
it charged that Senator Hill was in
favor of the repeal of the present
law and that Cleveland was not We
clij) the following from an editorial
January 2d, 1892:
"Mr. Cleveland is in favor of let
ting the present silver law, which
provides for the coinage of 52 mil
lion dollars, a year alone, (iov. Hill
is in favor of repealing the law that
would contract the currency and that
would he deplorable. Mr. Cleveland
is a better friend to silver than (Joy.
Hill."
To-day Secretary Hoke Smith in
his paper says that the present silver
law is a bad thing and that it ought
to be unconditionally repealed. And
yet there are people W ho will con
tinue to take such papers and be
lieve what they say. How much
longer will the people suffer such
treachery and duplicity?
THE RATIO-PARITY DODGE.
The gold bugs are beginning tr
fear that they can not repeal the
present silver law "unconditionally.
so they are getting ready to hang
on to the next peg. They are be
ginning to settle down on the ratio
parity dodge. They want the silver
dollar (if they can't kill it) measured
by gold. They want the gold dollar
to measure, to buy more silver, just
as they want it to buy more cotton,
more wheat and inore tobacco. In
stead of 1G ounces of silver to one
dollar of gold, they want 2i ounces,
just as instead of 8 pounds of cotton
to one dollar of gold, they want 1(5
pounds of cotton to one, and so on
with wheat and tobacco. The peo
pie are catching on to this steal. Let
the people read, watch and pray and
vote like they pray. "Eternal vigi
lance is the price of liberty !"
A NATIONAL CURRENCY THE BEST.
In a speech in the Senate in 1837,
John C. Calhoun said:
"It appears to me, after bestowing
the best reflection I can give no sub
ject, that no convertible paper that
is, paper whose credit rests on a
promise to pay is suitable for cur
rency. Bank paper is cheap to those
who make it, but dear, very dear, to
those who use it. On the other
hand, a national currency, while it
would greatly facilitate its financial
operation, -would cost nothing or next
to nothing, and would, of course,
add much to the cost of production,
which would give to every branch of
our industries great advantages both
at home and abroad. And I now
undertake to affirm without the least
fear I caii be answered, that a paper
issued by the government, with a
simple promise to receive it for all
dues would form a perfect paper cir
culation which could not be abused
by the government ; that it would
be as uniform in value as the metals
themselves ; and I shall be able to
prove that it is within the constitu
tion and powers of congress to use
such a paper according to the most
rigid rule of construing the constitu-
tion.

With c haracteristic gall and mean
ness some of the bourbon press in
this Suite are abusing and criticising
Vance because he btands squarely
and honestly on the Democratic
platform demanding the free coin
age ot silver. Ihe parrots know
only one tune: "stand by the admin
istration platform or no idatform."
Thty forget ungrateful fellows
how, in the last campaign Sim
mons dragged Vance from his sick
bed when the old Democratic war
horse was too feeble to raise his
voice in behalf of a then "lost cause."
They forget the shout that greeted
nis venerable presence at the Mor
gan ton rally, echoed and re-echoed
in tiie western mountains until elec
tion day. It goes for nothing with
a muzzled and labeled, hirling press
mai in auvocaung me xree coinage
of silver Vance is advocating the
convictions of a life time. It is
enough for their partizan imbecility
mat ne uoes not wear boss Cleve
land's Wall street collar. Does a
political party championed by such
contemptible leadership deserve to
live. .No, no, no!
Simmons sent Bob fJlenn over the
Statt, as the bearer of a message
from Mr. Vance to Marion Butler in
the last campaign. It brought the
sweat from him in great rivers every
time he went through the nantoiii
ime, but he endorsed it manfully.
At times he was pathetic, as many
of the readers of The Caucasian
will remember. Ihe fact that Mr.
Vance sent no message did not alter
the imprcssiveness of the lie. Where
is Jiessenger menu now.' Here
is a message to the people from the
old hero himself:
The hanks, stock-brokers, bond
holders, chambers of commerce, et
id omme genus, clamor for the re-
peal oi me oucrman law and urge
thecallingof an extra session of
Congress to assemble and sit during
the dog days for that purpose alone.
Tariff repeal which formed the
chief issue of the past campaign
is thrust to the rear and the in
terest of capital is placed in
FRONT.
Under these alarming circum
stances I have listened, and mostly
in vain, for the voic-e ot' the Farm
ers Alliance sounding their opinions
and w ishes and of those t hey repre
sent, composing fully one-half of the
nation; giving the feejile and va
cilitatino among politicians to
understand what they had to expect
if they betrayed the people's cause
on this great financial question.
It is time vour order was bringing
every atom of its influence to bear.
It should use every means possible
to let it be known that there is yet
another and entirely different world
in the fields and homes of toil, whose
interests demand attention as well
as that combination of money deal
ers, stock-brokers, and gamblers and
speculators who assume for them
selves to constitute the "business in
terests" of the land."
We call upon Chairman Simmons
to bid his messenger bear aloft this
second declaration of independence
that the people may know the peril
that menaces their very existence.
Carry the news to the people who
have been deceived by Democratic
platform and campaign promises.
But it is Messenger Glenn no
longer. No more day sweats and
vapor.bath for "terror Bob." With
a $7,000.00 office in his hot hand he
says, with all other plutocrats: "the
people be d n."
If Mr. Whitney insists on ad
hering to the Chicago platform the
Mugwump papers will accuse him
of "disloyalty to the administra
tion. Washington Post,
Exactly the accusation the Bour
bon press in North Carolina are now
making against Vance. A bourbon
here is a mugwump in New York.
They both wear Cleveland's collar.
The mrgwump wants to be respecta
ble. The bourbon is a dog collar
Democrat for revenue. The prin
ciple in both is "shall the dog wag
his tail, or the tail wag the dog?"
Secretary Carlisle ought to be im
peached, lie has not only nullified
the Sherman law by refusing to buy
silver, according to its plain man
date, nullified the constitution
which explicitly declares that silver
and 'old shall be the money of the
real. It is "a gigantic crime." lie

It was not for the lack ot money to

When Crisp got to Waahiugtoi last
week he "didn't know nothing no
no bow." Will the Sherman law
be repealed? "Don't know." What
about free coinage? "Don't know"
About the cloture " rule? "Don t
know." He was clear on one point
however. We must have money to
move the cotton crop.

to identify him. When politics is

inscrutable wiys of an All-wise

"To save the South from the hor
rors of a Force Bill," Democratic
Senators voted with the western free
silver Republicans for the free coin
age bill that passed the Senate at
the last session of Congress. Was it
a trade that ended with that Con
gress? Can any honest man take
that view of it? It proves that the
Democratic party wauted the Force
Bill as a campaign issue. It was
the "rebel yell" the Democrats
wanted, and they expected that the
white man vs. the negro slogan
would bring it. On general princi
ples thev didn't want the Force Bill,
or any other bill that would prevent
ballot box stuffing. Every Demo-
c atic Senator who votes against free
silver now stullities himself, repudi
ates his trade and is dishonest. He
brands himself an injrrate.
How is it with Bansom? Did he
vote for free silver to save North
Carolina from the Force bill? Every
consideration compells Ransom to be
consistent. Without the Force bill
there would have been no Piuviom j taken on the present ration of If! to

It is a sh;trj auit- of politics
that is now bcin played here. The
silver juestioi is jructieilly .-et'l-d
now. The unconditional repeal of
the Sherman law has hardly been a
possibility from the outset of the ag
itation. The administration has af
fected that attitude to conceal its
real purposes. This extra session
of Congress was not assembled with
any reasonable expeetation of re pi -a 1

Wall .Street. It will mean to the
people a masterpiece of political
juggelry. With the beginning of
the second week of the farce we see
a complete and abject surrender
apparently of the administration
to the free silver Demoerats. What
does it mean? everybody is ask in"-.
Party harmony is the reply. What
will be the result? A free coinage
bill with a ratio that will demone
tize silver that will establish its
metal commodity that will dis
charge all the govern men ts ob i Ra
tions in gold that are now payable
in coin. What more could Wall
Street demand? What more could
Great Britain's pawn-brokers de
mand. Hut what about the people who
demand the free and unlimited coin
age of silver at the ra io 10 to 1?
Are thev fools enough to swallow
this bait? That is the expectation,

plainly signify as much. See how-

for some understanding such a
speech from such a source would
have precipitated a riot in the House.
Every eye was on Bland ths
champion free silver advocate, when
he rose to reply. It was apparent
at once that his voice had lost the
ring of the true inetah It proved to
be an effort without heart or soul
full of meaningless thieats. Why
bluster about leaving the Democratic
party when he agrees to Wall street's
terms of 20 to 1 ratio? This may
be putting the case too strongly, but
the situation as now developed, fully
warrants it.
Bland, of Missouri, is known to
fame as the champion free coinage.
His name is historical in connection
with the agitation of this question
aud the legislation on the subject.
His two hours speech was a disap
pointment. His voice had lost the
ring of the true metal. The tire
and vim were lacking. When he
threatened the Democratic party
with annihilation it was treated as
a joke. And so through the entire
speech. It had no weight, carried
no conviction, frightened nobody,
persuaded nobody. Wheu the 20 to
1 compromise was made the cause of
fiee silver as currency was surren
dered. Mr. Bland must have been
keenly conscious of this in the des
peration of his effort to champion
