The end fully justified the means em cloyed, in their estimation, and many Democrats signed the call for the conference with that understand ing. Many others entered no pro test, hoping that such a result might follow. Another disappointment was Jams.

CLEVELAND A THIRDTERM CANDIDATE. Cleveland's ambition for an honor refused by Washington, denied to Grant and condemned by the un broken traditions of a century, is not a myth. He wants a third-term. His friends are working for it. In the inner circles of the Democratic party this i an admitted fact. The Democratic convention at Syracuse last week started a third-term cam paign. No doubt now exists that Perry Belmont, in the first draft of his speech as temporary chairman of the convention at Syracuse, set out to attack the proposal of a third term for Orover Cleveland, and the night before the convention saw good reason to expunge this passage from the speech as he delivered it Democratic "ieaZr" with here and there an insignificant exception, will do next year, after Cleveland's nomination for a third term, just ex actly as Belmont has done now be fore such a nomination. They will accept it. They will pocket present principles and protests and SUPPORT THE NOMINATION. They may not like it. It may be opposed to all their convictions now and all their utterances in the past This will make no difference.

C, Oct. 4. -I have been in communicatian with dif ferent parts of Rutherford county. I find there are but few men of any party who are not in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of silver at 16 to 1. But some say they ex pect to get it through and by the Democratic party or "goldbug fac tion." We invite all to come, but whether we will have room for all remains to be seen. I have never seen the people so eager for the truth on the various issues of the day as now. Expres sions from all sides are that The Caucasian is the best paper in the State. Turn on the light. Light on all subjects now before the people is what is wanted. We have some silver "converts" whose sayings sound right, but their actions evidently mean something else. Now, we must not say one thing and mean another, if we do, the peo ple will lose confidence in uh. Mr. Editor, give us tho truth. If we are free silver men, let us go in for the full measure of free and un limited coinage of silver 10 to 1- as we had it be tore I& .J. lliis is wanted, this is needed, and nothing less will do. Mr. Editor, we have no use for atraddlers. Give us men who mean jast what they say, and practice just what they preach. C. L. Harris. Gold buggery the Same as Democracy.

Harry Skinner was invited, and ad dressed the large concourse of peo ple that had assembled. The ad dress was ftble, logical, practical and eloquent, as well as effective. The speech that Mr. Kinner made to-day, if deliverod throughout the State, would rout tne goldbugs trom the State. Under the new election law we expect goldbuggery to be turned down at the next election by 1,000 majority in this county. By gold- buggery we mean Democracy. A. M. D. Hurrah forFoy aud the People's Party, For The Caucasian. Pelletier's Mills, N. C, Oct. 10, '95 I have just read the an nouncement of Hon. Jas. H. Foy to the effect that he has left the Demo cratic party and joined the Popu lists. Iam more than gratified at the announcement. Mr. Foy has been personally known to me for seyeral years as one of the best Dem ocrats of his county. He has had the support of the Democratic party for some time and would still have it if he should remain with the party. But when that party left principle, Mr. Foy, as all honest men should do, left the party and joined that one in which the strength of principle lies. Hurrah for Foy and the People's Party! R. F. Pringle. try. They do not seem to think that the mere sentiment against a third term is of importance compared with praetical matters relating to the principles which they wish carried out. Mr. Cleveland is extremely popular in North Carolina, and, as I have indicated, tne question oi nis having served two terms is not con sidered there in connection with his chances for renomination. The men who are fighting him are men who do not agree with hl3 financial policy, and they would fight him if he were to come np as a candidate for a first term." It may appear later that Bunn's application for additional clerk hire in the Rocky Mount postoffice ex aggerates Cleveland's popularity in the State, but the fact will not De disputed that the Ransom "machine" has been oiled for the third term campaign.

The negro race had a representa tive on the programme of the opening exercises at the Atlanta Exposition, of whom thej have great reason to be proud. Booker T. Washington, president of the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial School, spoke for the negro. It was the first time- a colored orator had even stood upon a platform before such a vast audience with white men and wo men. It was an event in the history of the race. Ilia speech could not have been ex celed. It was in the beet of taste, and there was not a jarring note in it. It made a magnificent impression, and was frequently interrupted by ap plause. Washington said : "Mk. President, Gentlemen op the Board of Directors and Citizens: One-third of the population of the South is of the negro race. No enter prise seeking the material, civil or moral welfare of this section can dis regard this element of our population and reach the highest success. I but convey to you, Mr. President and Di rectors, the sentiment of the masses of my race, when I say that in no way have ttie value and manhood of the American negro been more fittingly and generously recognized than by the managers of this magnificent exposi tion at every stage of its progress. It is a recognition w hich will do more to cement the friendship of the two races than- any occurrence since the dawn of our freedom. "Not only this, but the opportunity here afforded will awaken among us a new era of industrial progress. Igno rant and inexperienced, it is not strange that in the first years of our new life we began at the top instead of the bottom; that a seat in Congress or the State Legislature wss more arht than real estate or industrial skill; that the political convention or stump speaking had more attractions than starting a dairy farm or truck garden. A ship lost at sea for many days sud denly sighted a friendly vessel. From the mast of the unfortunate vessel was seen the signal, 'Water, water, we die of thirst!' The answer from the friendly vessel at once came back, 'Cast down your bucket where you are.' A second time the signal, 'Water, wa ter, send us water,' ran up from the distressed vessel, and was answered, 'Cast down your bucket where you are.' And a third and fourth signal was an swered, 'Uast down your bucket where you are.' The captain of the distressed vessel, at last heeding the injunction, cast down his bucket and it came up full of fresh, sparkling water from the mouth of the Amazon river. To those of my race who depend on bettering their condition in a toreign land, or who underestimate the importance of cultivating friendly relations with the Southern white man who is their next- door neighbor, I would say, cast down your bucket where you are ; cast it down in making friends in every manly way of the people of all races by whom we are surrounded. Cast it down in agriculture, in mechanics, in commerce, in domestic service and in the professions. And in this connec tion it is well to bear in mind that whatever other sins the South may be called upon to bear, when it comes to business pure and simple, it is in the South that the negro is given a man's chance in the commercial world, and in nothing is this exposition more elo quent in emphasizing this chance. Our greatest danger is, that in the great leap from slavery to freedom we may overlook the fact that the masses of us are to live by tne productions oi our hands, and fail to keep in mind that we shall prosper in production as we learn to dignify and glorify com mon labor and put brains and skill into curtail the fu!lnt growth of lb or era, let ttxe effort be turned intotiom latingr, encouraging and making bim the most useful and intelligent citi ten.

It is right aud important that all privileges of the law be ours, but it is vastly more important that we be prepared for the exercise of these privileges. The opportunity to earn a dollar in a factory just now is worth infinitely more than the opportunity to spend a dollar in an opera house. "In conclusion, may I repeat that nothing in thirty years has given us more hope and encouragement, and nothing has drawn us so near to you of the white race, as the opportunity offered by this exposition ; and here bending as it were, over the altar that represents the struggles of your race and mine, both starting practically empty handed three decades ago, 1 pledge that in your en ore to work out the great and intricate problem which God has laid at the doors of the south you shall have at all times the patient, sympathetic help of my race; only let this be constantly in mind that while from representations in these build ings of the product of field, of forest, of mine, of factory, letters and art, much good will come, yet far above and beyond material benefits will be that higher good that, let us pray God, will come in a blotting out of sectional differences and facial animosities and suspicions, and in a determination, even in the remotest corner, to admin ister absolute justice, in a willing obe dience among all classes to tne man dates of law and a spirit that will moderate nothing but the highest equity in the enforcement of law.

Jar. Kockefeller is reported to have snid, in substance, at the time that Prof. Bemis' attitude toward T mo nopolies was brought to his notice. that he did not give his money for any such purpose, and he did not propose to have such teachings permitted.

The aggressions of the trusts in the business world are regarded as suffi ciently dangerous, but when the trusts found and endow great universities and undertake to fix the teachers and students of social economy on the side of monopoly,' the magnitude of the danger becomes startling. It is be cause of these dangerous possibilities that the case of Prof. Bemis has created so much alarm.
