a -peeeh on the hilyer question last
I'ridav. livery one wan now more
anxious than ever to know what po
sition he would take. Senator Hill
hee-an ins spec, h by showing that
the Sherman law ( inakeshift as it
was; wns not the author of all our
ill. This was a fpiare slap at
'lee!;lI:d. He then expressed his
i-e'iet that if the l'resident wa hon
estly in favor of bimetallism that the
did not say io in his message. Th
I'r. i-ident did not biiythiithc would
be in favor of any silver legislation
after the Sherman law should be
repealed. He also rhaiprd that the
President (by myiiitf nothirtr abnut
the evils of the Shennan law iu his
upeeeli of acceptance and inaugural
addnss) did fit t hat time contem
plate keeping tho Sherman law to
prevent free counter, but had now
thrown bidder and wanted even that
repealed. Senator Hill then went on
to the .surprise of tht- Liuietallists to
say positively that he was in favor
of the free coinage of silver, and to
drive the nail home, ho said ho not
only farored free coinage at the ra
tio of 1(5 to 1 but even at a ratio of
lfij to 1. It now weemed that he
had broken with tho monopolists and
was entirely w ith the people. Huthold,
hear him through! He then pro
reeded to conclude his speech by say
ing that the Sherman law should
be unconditionally repealed, and
that next December or some other
time that Congrvss could take up the
question of free coinage. And thus
lie shows his true colors. ITo tried
to dress in the robe of patriotism but
he did not conceal the leopard's spots
Hoes not Senator Hill know that

"It will he recalled that when the

be a great amount of inconsistency
in their proceedings. We would read
of the dramatic manner in which

SUFFERING NEAR HOME.
We often see accounts of suffering
and meetings held by those who are
out of employment in large cities
nd at a distance from ns. This
thing has gotten so common at a
distance that it is natural for ua not
to be much impressed by it. But
now it occurs here in North Carolina
in n.ore than one place. The largest
meeting of this kind was held in
Wilmington last week. The men
did not beg for bread to be given
them, but asked for work that thev
might earn it. Matters grow worse

nothing and congress doi'jg worse
THE HOPE OF THE NAT10N
Cleveland got his "chance" and
has sold out his party and betrayed
the interests of the people. A new
party controlled by the south and
the west must come to the rescue of
thepeople. The Populist party is here
because there is a need for it. The
people will llock to its standard and
iave the Kepublic. Jlight on this
line we clip the following from Sun
day's Kichniond Dispatch:
"Mr. Hkiul thus declares that the
Democratic party is divided upon
the two most important questions
which now claim the attention of
the country. The East, he says, is
for monometallism and protection.
The West and Southwest are for
bimetallism and a tariff based upon
the theory that the Government has
no constitutional power to levy cus
toms duties "except for revenue on
ly. If he is right, it is time for
the leaders of the Democratic partv
to be lorecasting the future of that
The Republican party is a back
number, the Democratic party is
hopelessly divided, while the gold-
bugs hold high carnival at the na
tions cupitol. The Populist party
pure, young and vigorous and solidly
united carries the banner of hope
for the industrial, commercial and
agricultural classes. From ocean to
ocean the masses are Hocking to its
Money is scarce very scarce but
the people cannot afford to be with
out a newspaper no matter how
scarce money is. The Caucasian
is laboring to show the cause of this
trouble and to fasten tho responsi
bility where it belongs. Those now
in power can and should relieve the
situation. The Caucasian is giving
the people tho facts and stands ready
to condemn or approve according to
their merits or demerits. Tho peo
ple will sustain The Caucasian and
they see the importance of doing it
now in spite of the scarcity of money-
partisan we would rejoice in the ac
tion of congress Monday, for it will
make the success of the Populist par
ty almost a certainty. Put vievvim:
the situation as an Alliance man and
from a patriotic standpoint wo are
full of regrets. What we would have
above party and everything else is
relief for the people. And we would
be willing to sacrifice the Populist
party or any other to secure what
hould be the aim of all parties-
honest and just government. The
vepublican part' will never again
ave charge of the government, the
)eniocratic pai ty has now also s'iOwu
itself unworthy and incompetent. The
people must now Hock to the staud-
ird of the Populist party for political
alvation. Let the South and West
ome together under one Hag and
then we will get our rights.

We publish in this issue a synopsis
of Congressman Sibley's recent
speech. The Wilmington Messenger
said that the reading of that speech
did it more good than any speech
that it had read in a long time. The
Messenger evidently did not know
that Sibley was a Populist. Sibley
is one millionaire who has gotten
religion. lie is giving his entire
salary as congressman for the free
distribution of reform literature.
Let us not forget that whether the
majority of the people of jNorth
Carolina vote right next time
or not depends upon whether or
not they are correctly informed
about what is now being done and
not done. There never was a time
when it was more necessary to push

During the last campaign Senator
Vance was unable to go on the stump,
but he wrote a letter for campaign
purposes, begging the people to sup
port (Irover Cleveland, in which he
said "Mr. Cleveland is with ua on
every question except the money
question, and let us hope that his
good sense w ill bring him right on
that." (We quote from memory.)
Mr. Vance no doubt sees the folly
of voting for men who are against
our interests for party's sake. We
don't believe that Mr. Vance will
ask the people to commit such a
crime again, and if he does let us
hope "that the good sense" of the
people will keep them from follow
ing his advice.

This patriotic South Carolinian has

At the Virginia Democratic State
convention Mr. Munford who was
presiding as temporary chairman
made a speech. He denounced the
Republican party as the author of
all our ills, and mentioned the re
peal of the silver law in 1873 as one
of the great crimes. This sentiment
was cheered loudly by the conven
tion. Yet every resolution offered in
the convention in favor of free coin
age was smothered or voted down.
The word silver does not appear in
the platform. Can party managers

Mn Editok: On the 28th of August
the Duplin county Alliance met at
enausville in in a called meeting
the purpose of hearing the report
f our delegate to the State meeting.
Brother Shaw was present and
gave us an interesting and encour
aging report. It done us all good to
lear that the order the order was in
such good conditition. It was very
ileasant to hear that not an unkind
word was no vulgar witticisms; and
that the taint or wlnskev was no
where discovered. Such facts show-
that the order is managed bv men
who feel their responsibility, men
who believe in being gentlemen at all
times We wonder if any other or
ganization in the State from the
lquor dealers association up can say
Although it was such a pleasant
meeting we were disappointed. Sever-
il.who are not members of the order
were there and they too went away
hsappointed. We expected our own
Marvann to make us a speech, but
he failed to get there. Neverthe
less we had a nice little speech by
our county Lecturer Bro. Maxwell.
Also a few words of encouragement
and good counsel from Bro. Shaw,
and we all left for home more de
termined, if possible, to battle for
the right as we believe against the
oppressors of our people.
Brethren we are ever ready to say
a word in season and defend our
principles whenever assailed and
"God show the right."
Politics are still at the boiling
point in this section.

A division of the sheep and goats
was made in Congress Monday. There
were 239 goats and only 109 sheep.
Every goat had on a Cleveland Wall

quietly last week. They I ok as

The storm on Monday was wide
spread aud did more or less damage
at many places in and out of the
State. Many houses, trees, telegraph
wires &et blow down.
Every man who voted for the
unconditional repeal of the silver
law in congress Monday is, accord
ing to Senator Vance, "either a trai
tor or a fool."
Senator Ransom does not seem to
possess the courage of the adminis
tration pie that he has swallowed.
And now some of the men whoop
posed Gen. Weaver last year say that
he made the best democratic speech
they had heard in a long time. To
such I wish to say, that if you will !
take the Presidents message" to con
gress and read it carefully you will
be compelled to acknowledge that
if Gen. Wreaver preached pure de
mocracy, then the President is any
thing rather than a democrat. They
are as much opposed to each other
as two things can possibly be.
I would that we could tret such
men and for that matter all men to
lay aside prejudice and party feeling
and study this great question honest
ly and fairly, but they will not. One
man says he would vote for the devil
if he was nominated by the democra
tic party; another says that if the
party were to nominate the meanest
man he knew for an office he would
vote for him cheerfully; another says
he is a Vance man and a Cleveland
man and would follow both men if
he knew they were wrong. Poor
fellow! he doesn't know that Vance
is going one way and Cleveland the
other and that it is utterly i mnossi-
ble for him to follow both unless he
was a twin. .

I he record has been made, and here
after the man who tells the people
that he is a free silver Democrat,
and that the Democratic party is "in
favor of the free coinage of silver
ought to be hissed down. By its
vote to-aay -the Democratic party
has declared that the Chicago plat
form. IS A LIE.
By its cowardly surrender to-day
the Democratic party has declared
that drover Cleveland is the Demo
cratic party. Ruthlessly' has it
trampled tradition, principle, prece
dent, decency, virtue, to the dust
and wind. Shamelessly and unblush-
mgly has one Democratic leader aft
er another in tho debate, declared
that drover Cleveland was the Dem
ocratic party. These same men have
scoffed at and ridiculed Democratic
platform declarations. Day after
day the chorus has been sung by the

" rLATFORM BE I) D."
They have won the victory. They
have sold out the people to the mo
ney power. The whole patronage of
the administration has been prosti
tuted to this end.
The vote repealing the Sherman
law is a Waterloo! It has but one
meaning. It will pass the Senate by
the same emphatic majority. The
day is lost. The one hope is in the
people. The one expectation is the
next congress may be strong enough
to crush the administration.
It was left to Bunn in the North
Carolina delegation to do the mar
velous sea-horse act. It was a pic
turesque performance and will go
down into history as the great and
original straddle act of the 53rd
Congress. With the other Democra
tic members of the delegation he
voted for all the different ratios,
irom in to i to Z0 to 1, including the
Bland-Allison law, and then by
showing the possibility of his strad
dling capacity he voted for the "un
conditional repeal'' of the law.

the most commanding figure, and
magnetic force in the reform move
ment was called upon by an inscrut
able providence, to lay down the
great work that he was doing for
humanity. No man in the organiza
tion (and few in the whole country)
have had an equal place in the
hearts of the people. And while
this is his highest tribute and las
proudest monument, yet we should
give some evidence of our esteem
and admiration for him. In the past
North Carolina has not done her
duty in this respect. Let every Al
Haneeman, and every lover of the
great principles of truth and justice
(as embodied in the demands of the
Alliance) resolve, that before anoth

plain but fitting and imposing mar
