Th State legislature of l'J.r was
chatged with graver duties and faced
greattr responsibilities than any law
making body that ever convened in
North Carolina. The duty of revo
lutionizing the State government
devolved upon it. A general reference
has already been made to the work
accomplished along that line. From
time to time particulars of the work
will be elaborated, and the Cat-
t'ANlAN takes the liberty of assuring
the people that when this is done,
they will be willing to render a ver
dict of "well done, good and faithful
At this time, the opposition Demo
cratic press has, without question, a
more extensive and much more rapid
arrangement for disseminating re
prts among the people of the State
than the press of all other political
parties combined; and people who
read it and are accustomed to put
confidence in it (if there are any who
have confidence in it), have been per
sistently misinformed in every mat
ter which has been ventilated by it.
The demagogic mendacity and uu
qualified venality of the Democratic
newspapers, in this respect, have
been a matter of bulging amazement
to those who have known the truth
The Cavcasian can assert that their
general reports have been and con
tinue to be as false as the most con
sumate lying ingenuity ran mak
them, and that they are not worth a
moment's serious consideration.
A sweeping statement like the above
ought to call for and does call for
vindication. We are ready to make
it. It may be stated that the Cau
casian's readers, at least, have al
ready had one conclusive instance of
the audacity and unmitigated ef
frontery of the Democratic press in
the matter- of downwright and un
reserved lying. Another such in
stance could hardly increase the pub
lie disgust and condemnation under
which that press is staggering, but
it might be, nevertheless, interesting.
The Democratic papers are asser)
ing that the last legislature cost tlje
people more than any other since
1379. They made that statement
before it was possible to know what
the cost would be. Almost at the
beginning of the session they said
and almost swore that the legislature
was being conducted at a total cost
of three thousand dollars more than
the legislature of 1S'J3. The Cau
casian at once showed that the ex
pense of was twenty-three dollars
per day Ut than that of the legisla
tors of 1S93; and it was shown so
conclusively that the Democratic
sheets were very glad to turn the mat
Bat they were bound to break out
again. And now the report and as
sertion of every Democratic paper in
the State is that the last legislature
cost $72,004.60 or $0,028.48 more
than the legislature of 1893.
This is just one great big lying guess.
It should be stated that these re
ports are usually first made in Ral
eigh Democratic papers; and then
every little "one-hoss,""ki-yi," dirty
sheet swallows them whole. They
don't know anything about the facts
they don't care" anything about them.
They are just simply starving for
something from which they can make
partisan political thunder. If they
can't get a fact a truth they make
a lie: and it seems to uit their pur
poses pretty well.
Every two years constitute a legis
tive period in this State. The ex
penditures of the State for each of
these periods are basedwn legislative
enactment. Now, let's have some
Aggers" such as attend Democratic
administration) and if the people
want any more Democracy after
having seen them in condensed shape,
why well, they can have it. In the
figures below are presented the cost
of legislatures for each two years,
and the tota amount of money spent
for the same time. The figure are

Just study these figures a little.
Just see how they jump up and in
crease from one legislative period
to another. The more the people
trusted the Democratic party, the
worse it became, until, during the
last two years it was in power,
got away with nearly two and a half
millions of dollars of public money.
Just notice one thing. The legis
latures of 1879 80 cost the people of
North Carolina $71,29:1.80.
The legislature of 1893 94 cost the
people of North Carolina $03,970.78.
The legislature of 1893-90 cost the
people of North Carolina $03,779.84,
and this included an amount of more
than $3,000.00 paid t contestants for
seats an expense hardly heretofore
known, and which was a direct re
sult of Democratic fraud and
rascality at the ballot-boxes in the
election of 1894. And this legisla
ture did twice as much work as any
one ever assembled in North Caro

so you have the power to take it; bnt

Incidentally it might be said that
the retorts of the State auditor
make marvellously interesting read
ing for people who have the public
good at heart. Suppose you send to
the auditor for one the last one for
instance. Just try it.
THE FAMOUS AND'
1NKASIOIS" M OUT
Last week the Caucasian made
mention of what had become a noted
"law." It was the assignment act,
which some rascally Democrat, paid
by foreign money, had "sneaked"
in among the enrolled bills of the
General Assembly, and by this means
secured the signatures of the Presi
dent of the Senate and Speaker of
the IIous3 making it a law. The bill
was as follows:
Section 1. That all conditional sales, as
signments, or deeds of trust, which are exe
cuted to secure any debt, obligation, note or
noiid, which gives preferences to any credi
tor of the maker, shall be absolutely void
as to existing creditors.
As before stated the money lenders
and mortgage takers were afiaid
they could not get control of every
thing the borrowers might own under
this law, and they made the Demo
cratic press create one of their usual
fogs about it, and in the meantime
made much noise with fog-horns
saying the whole country bad gone
to the bow-wows, and otherwise at
tempting to alarm the people. Quiet,
conservative people said nothing,
but begun to look into the matter;
for it was claimed that chattel mort
gages and lein bonds given for ad
vances of supplies would not be good
under this law.
A case was brought from Durham
to the Supreme Court so that adecis
ion as to the operation of the law
might be had. The Court decided
that it Joes not apply to mortgages exe
cuted for a jtresent consideration. This
decision is to the effect that a mort
gage or lien given for supplies, or
auything that the moitgage is se
curity for, is as valid and good as it
The law as it stands will prevent
anyone from making preferred credi
tors in case of an assignment for the
benefit of creditors.
mi ! ii
ine decision in tne case was
handed down by J ustice Montgomery,
b.ing concurred in by the Chief Jus
tice and J ustices Furches and Clark
Justice Avery filed a dessenting
opinion to the effect that no properly
constituted case was before the court
While Justice Clark concurred in the
decision of Justice Montgomery con
cerning the construction of the law,
he also concurred with Justice Avery
concerning the status of the case
But whatever the law does or does
not do, it is a fraud. It is not justly
entitled to publication. It appears
among the laws through some shrewd
scheming and manipulation and
that this scheming and manipulation
was done by some Democrat, after
the bill had been tabled in the House,
can scarcely be doubted. A Demo
crat confesses to have drawn the bill
at the instance of a Baltimore organ
ization, and says that an ez-judge
was connected with it. This ex-judge
is now a Darbam lawyer- partner Post's shrewd little "Southern rain"

A "SOl-THKKN" MAN FOR PRESIDENT
Last week the Washington Post
made an apparently serious suggest
ion that the Democratic party nomi
nate a "Southern man" for Presi
dent in 18UG. "I-am-a-Democrat"
D. B. Hill seconded the motion by
telegraph; and, according to the
Post, there is right much discussion
about the matter. The Caucasian
has appreciated the Post as a paper
of both dignity and very refined
humor, even if its politics are some
what fno-Rcious and elusive. We

evidently be a stupendously multi-
tudinous success. We tear tne ooutu

The proposition, however, may
have the effect ot creating a little
flutter in the South. A man who has
a candidate tor president
m.ti hn.r11v fWl n email as a fpn
acre lot, and for a fact there may be
some old codgers who would like to
experience a feeling of that size.
But the time at, and conditions
under which this proposition is torn
forces us to smile a little smile. The
"Solid South" has been the back
bone of the Democratic party for
tWfw vcorc Tf tn tv,0
polls time and time again and sent
up solid Democ atic presidential
electoral votes. It has never had a
word to say as to who the candidates
for nomination should be. It has
had almost as little to say about who
should be the nominated candidate.
When the Northern Democrats
pointed out a man who could Drob-
ably carry "Noo Yawk," that set
tled the business regardless of man,
morals, mischief or anything else.
The "Solid South" fell in line.
Does any member of the present gen-
eration recall a Democratic eandi-
date for President who was not from
"Noo Yawk?" If he chanced to be

was a Democrat. Tf tho nrmnsitirm
candidate happened to be a Union
soldier, he was a viainous vampire
on the face of the earth and every-
thing else of a disreputable character
that language could paint. Truly,
of all gullible and gander-headed
f nmns that ftvr infested tliA o-lnho
the Southern Democrats have been
most so. Thev've swallowed everv-
thing and anything, not knowing or
caring what it was, provided it was
called a "Democrat." The Northern
crowd knew they could depend upon
the "Solid South" to do this every
time. They have regarded the
Southern Demonracy just as the
State Republicans have regarded
the negro. Both knew that when
the command was given the lines
would be drawn up, whether there
was any sense, honesty or decency
in the order or not.
It must have been a dispensation
of Divine Providence to let the ele
ment supported by the "Solid South'
oome into control of the government.
Nothing else, it seemed, could ever
convince the South of the egregious
assininity of which it was guilty. If
it is not convinced now, it is pretty
reasonable to suppose that it is be
yond the reach of conviction. The
Northern wing of Democracy is
pretty well satisfied that the party is
a rank, rotten failure. Its "in
power" record permits no sensible
man to reach any other conclusion;
and under the influence of this opin
ion; when the party is spoken of only
with mingled sensations of ridicule,
disgust and contempt; when its
back-bone, the "Solid South," is
shattered and broken: when its
chances for life are about equal- to
those of a June-bug in the beak of a
bee-martin, the Northern wing mag
nanimously seconds the motion to
nominate a Southern Democrat for
the Presidency. Amen!
But The Caucasian hopes that the
subscription business commensurate
with the cute-ness of tb idea.
Democratic editors evidently do
not read the Scripture. If they do
they don't comprehend it, or forget
it. or wnt obey it or Eome'hing of
that kind. There is a pretty leson
of rock-ribbed consistency in the
Scripture. ''First take the beam

If that paper, before promulgating
its Wl1d theories of law and its ejueer
ldeas ot the duties ot judges, would
consult some well-known lawyer of
standing in his profession, it would
save the fools who run after it some
inconvenience. The fact that it does
not consult with such lawyers is evi
dence that it is willing to plunge
madlv about ffuideu by its own
crude nolions, or that it is given over
to the service of its unscrupulous
masters the money power.
But to return toour comments on the
coi respondence: We have been
advised by those learned in the law
that the governor had no legal right
to lssue a commission either to tor
Jones or to Mr. Mears as crimina
court jQ(Jges; and that in doing so he
arrogated to himselt powers which
he did net possess. The act of the
assembly, which created the criminal
court did not require any commision
to be issued by the governor or any
one else to the judges of these courts.
There is not a line or word in the
constitution of the State or in the
laws about the governor issuing com
missions to any judge except the
following: Justices of the Supreme
court and judges of the superior
courts shall be commissioned by the
governor. J.Sec. 2731, Code.J

have it their way, and they are try
