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 servants-" 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 ter loose. 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 A'"i7u neH& for the same time. The figure are taken from the reports of Democratic i auditors: J Cost of Total Amount 'I?KiiHaturf. of Money EieniiJ. r r.i,i7.: 1 -T7,.V ' yil'o'jo : 1,7'vJ 11 r . , , m r a.Ols.Ol ' 2,.M2,J2.7. 1 J ... r . . . 2 Ul Ohm.-'M The LK'iisr.ATt'KE ok 1HU' Has Cost thk 1'Eori.E !J -S4 up to late.

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, it 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 lina. Say, can you see7 Can you add up and subtract I Do you know the significance of dry, cold figures? Do you want any more Democracy ? If so you have the power to take it; bnt if you will excuse us, gentlemen, no more for us, please. 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' GAOi 1NKASIOIS" M OUT LAW. 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. t 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 ever was. 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 heard. 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.

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 j.-- i ..a v.;,i . ousiness paper, as manager ox a tino. wanamaKer store itwouia evidently be a stupendously multi- tudinous success. We tear tne ooutu em circulation of the Post is on the The proposition, however, may have the effect ot creating a little flutter in the South. A man who has hi 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 " I 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 a TTnirn Roldipr. it. vests nil rIMit TT 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. MATtHtt MA(.ItTi:KUU 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.

But they are there in plain black and white. It happened that some members of that legislature persistently opposed the appointment of these "nigger" magis trates. That opposition crystallized into an expressed and signed protesl which appears in the Journal. The protest covers two pages. But as long as it is md as stongas it was, it did not prevent the Democratic majority from appointing many negro magistrates. The extracts "The undersigned, respectfully but earn estly, protest against the policy which ap pears to have ben approved by a majority of the Democratic members of this General Assembly in the election of colored magis trates in and for certain counties of this State." The protest mentions the thousands of speakers upon the stump who maintained unhesitatingly, freely and repeatedly, that the colored peo pie, especially as citizens in the same county and government with white people, were absolutely unfit for these public positions. "We protest in sorrow rather than in anger, against the action of our political associates who, we believe with pure motives, have acted uu wisely, nor are we without hope of a change of views on their part at some day iu the future See page 872, House Journal 1S7G 77. and come again.

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 These attempts by the dishonest representatives ot the Democratic press and the henchmen of Demo cratic bosses to injure Judge Mont gomery under their hypocritical anxiety for the purity of the j udiciary , will but strengthen him in the con fidence and good will of all honest men. MUST KEUAIN AS HE IS. "Devil" and "Damn," and all words of possible derivation there from, together with all expressions intimating close association there with, form the choicest part of the Wilmington Messenger's vocabulary these days. It is a positive and im pressive fact, that the paper over which the above mentioned prosody is spewed, has recently taken on a fiery, reddish hue, and shows a tendency to assume a sulphurous, blueish tinge. Evidence that the presiding genius (?) of this journal is seeking to form a combination with the proprietor of Hades is pretty conclusive; but in a spirit of philan thropy we warn the aforesaid "pre siding genius (!)" that tbe "days of miracles have passed." You may be led by the "proprietor" to believe otherwise, bat he will make no more Faust" deals.

The tight of the goldbugs to estab ish and seal the single gold standaid in this country will be desperate for the next two years. They are already planning their work. Their first bid is to the newspapers. Ihey nave sent out circulars offering to practi cally print any newspaper, free of cost, that will circulate their ideas and views. At any rate, they offer to furnish, free of charge, "broad side" publications which may, if desiralle, contain some matter pre pared by the paper using them so as to hiipoHii no expense on that paper. Now listen. Many little demo-gold bug papers will take this bait. But they will get a good bite. They wil write to mis "iterorm ciuo, William street, New York, accepting its proposition. But they will say that folding the papers cost some thing; that mailing costs something that the editor's time is worth some thing, and will probably also say that the circulation of the paper is worth something to the "cause." The 4 Reform club" will meet them at every turn and will put up all the "boodle" necessary to secure their circulation. Iu this way, many sinal goldbugs will fare well from the big goldbugs' table. These are a few little pointers Note them down; and when you be gin to see these "broadside," "sound money" publications scattered over the country, just remember how and for what they ate being circulated. Last September a white man by the name of John VV. Proctor was indicted for living in adultery with a negro woman, lie es caped with her to Johnston county where they lived together until a few days ago. He was brought up in Johnson county for the same ouence, when he made the state ment that this negro woman, an octoroon was his lawful wedded wife, and that he was married in the court house of Wilson last September by Justice of the ueace Mer cer. After making an investigation there was seen to be some truth in his remarks, so a new wa-rant was procured against Proctor lor marrying a negro woman. Failing to give bond he was placed in jail here Satur day evening. nson Mirror. Yes. He is a Democrat evi dently an enthusiastic one won' be outdone by Cleveland nor any body else. Democrats generally have a roistering record in this sort of thing, barring the lega "botch" in it. Living evidence everywhere. Er-er, by the way, wha is the political status of the J. P who performed the ceremony? Take the case. There is a quite persistent effort on the part of cotton speculators to attribute the low puce of cotton to the law of "supply and demand. The idea of there being no "demand when half the people of this coun try ai e just, half clad is preposterous ly absurd. But the speculators will have it their way, and they are try ing to have the cotton average re duced. All the big houses are watching the acreage question, so that if the Sothern planters should try to deceive each other concerning the number of acres they will plant, they certainly cannot deceive the shrewd spinners and speculators. Let's get free silver more money more work, and then the "demand" will exceed the "supply." Grateful rains have broken the terrible drouth in the northwest. In consequence thereof the New York Times owlishly observes that "the farmers are through with free silver and Populism for awhile and are devoting themselves to the plow." That's good. "For awhile' is es pecially good. "For awhile" the big papers will do the talking. The farmers will do the thinking. After "awhile" they will do the voting. And then "for awhile" Populism and free silver will do the business. See f The Governors of Mississippi and Missouri have called extra sessions of their respective legislatures to undo some "cussedness" perpetrated by lobbyists. When the next co-operation legislature meets iu North Carolina, it ought to pass a law to hang lobbyists without tr al. A goodly number of pestiferous Demi cranks would be gotten rid of in this way. Now that the "sneak" mortgage law is no good as a Democratic cam paign document, we congratulate Gov. Carr on his purpose to have it totally nullified. We shall also con gratulate him when he looks into the anti-trust law (1889), and the provisions against double office holding; and either have them en forced or "expunged from the records." rev. c. a. g- ibotu i"ru"' a riguisrol relative to the repr- fentattven of th resrectabi p . . . . .
