kind, but simply serve notice on them
that all the hired thugs and "pie
counter brigade" at the command of
the machine can not steal tbe next
election in this State without a pro-
test from the people who are honest
in all parties.
Hut we started out to call atten
tion to the Virginia vote. The fig
ures quoted above of course repre
sents tbe count of the Democratic
machine, but for the sake of argu
ment let us take it for granted for
the present that they are correct.
Suppose that the People s party only

It means that more than 00,000 Dem-
ocrats who voted for Cleveland last

ocrats will be badly left. Of course,
the machine politicians will now try
to make it appear that this tremend-
ousgainin the People's party vote
waa caused by negro votes. Hut ev-
try man who read the Virginia pa-
pers a few weeks ago, knows how an-
xious the Democrats then were anout
the colored vote. I hey admitted
that the People's party would win if
it grot the colored vote. We all know
that the Chairman of the Democra-
tic Executive Committee got some
leading negroes in the State to sign
an address calling upon the negro
voters of the State to vote the Dem-
ocratic ticket. We aU know that
they sent off for an import-id negro
orator to go out and make stump
speeches for the Democratic party.
And when this writer was in Vir-
ginia he was told that tha Democra-
tic machine had negro school teach-
era or preachers hired going over the
counties advising the colored people

or at least to vote that ticket. If

contained a large number of letters
from different quarters of the State
that throw lurht on the situation.
The following are a sample of them:
The Democrats claim this county
by 1,200 majority. They had and
used large quantities or money and
whiskey. We used neither. Their
majority is derived mainly trom the
negro vote. George lu Minor.
This county gave O berrall 145

Thos. E. Cobb.
Again Mr. Law ton writes from
Chesterfield county that the Demo-
crats used whiskey, money ana in
timidation. He says that they got
all the negroes they could lo vote the
Democratic ticket and prevented
those who would not from voting at
Besides this, the places where the
Democrats made any gains were in
counties where such wholesale in

occurred as was practiced in Halifax

are owning their eyes to the true

uioDtliH ago he was n.eken with
paralysis, and has been gradually
mukluti since that time.
He was born in Baltimore Decem
ber the 4th, 1S20. After gradaating
at a college in Pennsylvania he was
licensed u a Methodist preacher.
He was soon appointed general
Agent of the American Bible Soei
tta, and selected North Carolina as
his tield for work. A few years la
ter he was appointed awistant Pro
fessor of logic and rhetoric at the
University of North Carolina. Af
ter filliug this plaee for five years he
was elected Professor of Natural
Science of Randolph Macon College,
Virginia. He soon left this place to
accept a position as rresiaeni oi
Greensboro Female College, North
Carolina. In 18'4 he resigned this
place to enter the ministery; he soon
went to New York, however, and
started a church paper known as
The Watchman." This project
soon failed and he began preaching
in a chapel in New York. Commo
dore Vanderbilt gave him fifty thou
sand dollars to build the "Church of
the Strangers." This was to be a
kind of non-sectarian, independent
church, and in that Dr. Deems has
continued to preach. He has written
and published several books viz.,
"The Home Alter," "What Now,"
"Analysis of Southern Methodism,"
"Life of Jesus," "Gospel of Common
At one time he was pastor of the
Methodist church in Goldsboro. He

Another road congress was in ses

who paid their expenses and whom
did they represent. We see the fol

Crevard of Mecklenburg, president;
W. F. Kornegay of Wayne, vice-pres
ident; J. A. Holmes, secretary and
treasurer. It is called the "Public
Koad Association of North Caroli
na." Of course the people would be
benefitted by better roads, but is it
not paternalism to have the govern
ment to improve them? Would it
not be best to turn the whole matter
over to private corporations, let them
fix up the roads as they see lit and
then charge the people as much toll
as they want? Public roads and
railroads ought to stand on the same

We learn that Mr. Ab. Slaughter,
a former citizen of Goldsboro, but
who for several years has lived in

of his neighbors over a disputed line
between them a few days ago, killed
his neighbor or the brother of his
neighbor killed him, or at least, in
their engagement there were pistols
used and both were killed. The

The first gun of the catnjaign
was tired at this place uu Saturd.?
The People's party seeing and
feeling the necessity of organiza
tion, come together and organized a
club with 35 members. We feel
proud of 'this movement, and that
St. Pauls township should have
been first to take that ail imjortant
step. We hope the exanip e ill be
followed at once by every tow nship
in the county, and by every county
in tbe State.
Our enemies are hard at work and
will not leave any plan untried to
defeat ns on the coming election.
We can't call attention too often to
tbe pressing necessity of organizing
our forces thoroughly. Many more
dangers beset ns now than ever le
fore, hence the great necessity of
omhining our forces and educating
them up to a proper appreciation of
the great work to lie done and in
what manner to do it.
We are closely watching the camp
of the enemy and observe an uu wont
ed activity amongst the plutocratic
hordes. I he infant Peoples
party has assumed manly proportion?,
with strong muscles of popularity
nd bids fan. with such men as
Vance, Irby of South Carolina, aud
Rosser of Virginia, as fearless expe
uents of it honest and patriotic
teachings to become a determined
and dangerous rival of the old rotten
organizations of the past.
lhat we have much hard work be
fore tis is a fact that none should
lose sight of; and the sooner we get
our machinery in order for this work
the better for our cause. Let there
be no retrogression in our move
ments, but onward, outward to the
goal of equal rights to all.
Ue feel satisfied that, if our forces
are properly husbanded, with the ad
vantages given us by the disaffec
tions in the ranks ot our enemies,
success, grand and glorious, will be
ours. lo this enu let us work.
Yours in the faith,

SUM OF AIX HOLIDAYS.
That Is Why Thanksgiving Should Be the
Happieot of All.
vy e could not asK a more sugges
tive title or one which makes sweet
er music in an American's ear
This occasion, says the New York
Ledger, is different from all other
national holidays, since it gathers
them all up into one, and with them
unites every mercy of the dying
year, the bounties of its harvests,
the manifold gifts of white-winged
commerce, the preservation of peace
and prosperity, and recognizes each
and every one in a gratitude o'er-
flowmg with festivity and mirth.
Thanksgiving! A word with which
to conjure happiness into the most
dismal and dejected spirit. The per
sonal associations of this festival
are, perhaps, its greatest sources of
attraction. The fathei and the mo
ther, expecting John from the city
and Mary from the school, will re
call the dear old days when they.

fore the blazing logs, and watch the
ruddy glow glinting across the pol

"Half hidden in a quiet nook, serene
or look and heart.
Talking the old times over, the par
ents sat apart."
And what times they were, famous
for corn huskings unknown to this
degenerate age, for moonlight straw
rides across the glistening snow and
hoary ghost legends of Hessian
troopers. Hence, Thanksgiving
comes with redolent memories of
past joys, blended into the best and
puiest moments of American life,
its homes and its hearts.
Let fair summer's robes pale and
diej ind the frosted leaves rustle be
neath the tread, vy nat cares Thanks
giving day for winter's stern
hearlds? In fact,we welcome a erood
November day that the cold without
may form a contrast for tbe warmth

of things to eat the time-honored
bird and the national pie in the
long, bright days of leafy June.

Then, as we cluster around the
fire and bid defiance to the elements,
let ns remember to make Thanks
giving a home-day, where all the
dear ones will gather, and eyes look
love to eyes which speak again.
It must also be a happy day to
every body, from grandmother- in

joyous festivity, kindly deeds, old

Things Worth Knowing.
Preparing a Face Bath.
The proper way to prepare a face
bath is to fill a bowl with hot water,
dip in it a flannel cloth, rub the soap
on this until there is a thick lather;
pass it gently but briskly over the
face With both hanks wash the
soap off, sponge with cooler water,
dry on a soft towel., afterward using
the palms of the hands to arouse cir
culation. After the face is thor
oughly dry take some unguent on
the fingers and begin the massage.
Almond oil and cocoa butter are
both softening and are easily and
quicklv absorbed. But no unguent
must be used constantly or it will
produce a light dow upon the face.
In the morning the face should be
washed in hot water containing any
thing the skin may seem to demand.

A SAMPLE CASE IS ALABAMA.
Attention has rvoeutly been called
to tbe evidence in the xntrted elec
tion case of Wheatly . Cobb, from
Alabama, now jeiidiug before the
House election commit te. It is not
a case of Kepublicati agaiust Demo
crat, but of a lVpulitt who was a
Democrat against a Democrat, It is
the old story so often related n
every Southern State and so success
fully repeated last week in irginia.
In Alabama the election office! s were
all Democrats, apiointed by the Teni
ocratic machine. They are instruct
ed, generally, to make no returns
from a district where the majority
is largely against the Democratic
Mr. Whateley shows by the evi
dence of the supervisors, as well as
by the sworn testimony of hundreds
of witnesses that in many of the pre
cincts in the Fifth District of Alaba
ma at the last congressional election,
the Democratic election officers did
not make any return of the vote or
else they purposely neglected to com
ply with some requirement of the law
or they did not appear at the polling
place at all.
For instance, in the election pre
cinct in Macon county, commonly
called Tuskegee, at box No. 1,368
votes were cast for Whateley and 00
fcr Cobb, and in box 2, 1 6 votes were
cast for Whateley and 24G for Cobb,
giving Whateley a majority of ?0 in
But the election ollicers made no
return whatever of the votes. Iu
precinct No. 3 the same thing was
done, no return being made of the
vote. In precinct No. 4 the return
was not made out properly, purpose
ly, and the canvassing board threw
the votes out, refusing to allow any
correction or to receive any evidence
in the matter.
i nat thing went on in that way
all over the district. Wherever Cobb
had a majority in a precinct the re
turns were properly made. But
where he was in the minority the re
turns were either improperly made or
not made at all, and at numerous
precincts the regularly appointed
election officers did not appear to
hold an election and in every such
case it was a precinct where the I cm
ocrats were in the minority.
Many of the United States Super
visors who swear to this state o;
things were Democrats and so swear
in their testimony,
The case perfectly illustrates the
Democratic machine methods of con
ducting elections and counting ma
jorities. They speak of it boasting
ly. The practice was originally re
sorted to to count out the negro, but
it answers the same purpose iu count
nig in a machine Democratic when
the contesting candidate is not a lie
publican but a Populjst or anti-ma
How long the white people in the
South who are jn reyolt against cor
rupt machine methods wjll submit
to this condition of things remain e
to be seen.
