The amounts 'and the names of those who contribute will be pub lished in The Caucaslax as for merly. Address, Marion Butler, Raleigh, r$--. N.C. 8HBI1 STILL RETURNING. Yes. Miss '.'Prosperity" is still re turning. For the past ftte uetl the old party papers and the money and monopoly commercial organs have been lustily howling that prosperity 1 iPk. ia returning. -1 u picture pnuera have been so bold as. to present car" toons illustrating .tlie revival of trade &o. Ac, and altogether there has been a lively chorus. mm But nobody has believed, and for a week or so trading! commercial journals appear to have become somewhat ashamed of their bold and 1 . senseless ass rtions and are skirmish ing around the edge of truth. Brad- street's says: ... Tbs check to general' trade which has been conspicuous for the past few weeks till continues. Unseasonably mild weath er and rains have intensified this feature. which la more conspicuous 8outh where tha decline in the price of cotton and con sequent check to shipments are held to be partly responsible. Notice now this paper uses the term "for tbe past few weeks)" yet it has been very few weeks since this Tery paper was talking about "reviv al of trade," "encouraging outlook" Ac It further says, . Business failures show another marked increase, numbering 3&I 'throughout the United States against 279 last week, 295 in the week a year ago, and S58 in the third wees 01 movemoer, in the corres ponding week 1892, the total was only 185. The bulk of the increase is in the middle and western states. A short time since the bulk of fail ures was reported to be in the Southern and Eastern1 SfaBs. In the face of such confessions as these, which it is compelled to make, this same paper lands Mr. Carlisle's goldbug speech before the New York Chamber of Commerce and says of Carlisle himself: The present adminiatration is fortunate hi having as the chief of its financial de- clear exposition as oecreiary uarusie baa shown himself to be during the last, two years or mors. His addresses on tha money question have been, powerful aids to the movement for founder currency, sod without doobt ihev bare rained In fore from Uii very fart of Iteration e e Urn! Carlisle says he is a Demo- crat. The people fare Democracy I a thundering smack of approval a I short time since, didn't they. Yet the j of Ac. whether the fool people think so or not! After much praise of Mr. I Carlisle for upholding the gold stand ard, this paper reports: GoM shipments to Enrope this wwk have been very heavy, ataouotioc to 7,3,VJ.A. The same paper reports that bank clearings continue of large propor tions and that the position of the railroad interests of the country gen erally is much better than a year ago. Now think a minute! What power is it that owns and controls the railroads and bank! After you get that in your mind just read this from the same paper: No leas striking tban a week ago is tbe comparatively long liat of decreases of price lor staples, among them lieMbtaitr pig iron com, oau, port, Urd and coffee, imoux foodproducU, and coiion, iMfiroieuw, niuesaau uvt came anu bogs '4 Ittrw farmer friend, mien a mo ment. What right, moral or legal, can there be for a holding up and continuance of banking and rail road Profits when all the work you do and everything you have must decrease in value. Would there be any railroad business or banking business if you did not produce wheat, corn, oats, cotton, cattle &ct Wake up yourself manf and then tee if you can wake up somebody else. A FLANNEL MOUTI1KD ANARCHIST-" I We have seen the term which con stitutes this headline applied to hon- eat Populists by the lacqueys and flunkeys of some old party vf i . .. bosses. imow, we wisn to buck this name on a man who is entitled to it. lie is no other than Edward Atkinson of whom the old line papers are pleased to speak as an "eminent authority'' Ac, but who is really nothing mere than an eminent liar and tnnl nf nln- - i tocracy. .

SOME MOItK ABOUT "WHO PAYS?" Concerning some recent remarks relative to who writes the Charlotte Observer's goldbug matter and who pays for its distribution, we find some refeience to the matter in Webster's Weekly which says: It will be seen from the above that aft.or many aays tbe Observer itself confirms the truthfulness of the Weekly's statement that Mr. Moses Cone, the president of the plaid trust, is the author of the two contributions to the so-called sound mwnev literature nf tne uay winch lately appeared in the Obser ver above the signature "Merchant," and which was afterwards Dut in iamnhlt form aud scattered broadcast over the State. We were satisfied as soon as we read the article. of tbe source from which it emanated the president of a trust and we venture the prediction that no trust has vet ever been organized that would not clap to the echo every statement contained in it. "And vet. strange to say, we see what claims to be the leading Democratic paper in conservative old North Carolina, not only opening its columns to dui giving the strength of its grip upon tbe public to the extension of not only the trusts, but John Sherman's iHm nf finance, when to do so is to cruelly impair its own reputation for consistency and to spit upon all the antecedents of the Demo cratic party. The Observer's statement that it does not know where the so-called sound mrtnAV oltiK ef Kawm V .J from, strikes us as being f unnv enough to make a horse laugh. It is onlv necessary to glance at one of the money communications wun wnicn 11 is nooaing tne country, to see that its officials are mainly Republican mil lionaires who have been made so very largely uy me demonetization oi silver, which has steadily depreciated values of every kind, while only the dollar has appre ciated. Is it not safe to conclude, brother Caldwell, "that water cannot of its own vo lition rise Higher tban its fountain head?' what strange bedfellows politics makes the president of the plaid trust and Editor Caldwell' walking together hand in hand, as luviugiy aa twin oroiners. WHI DON'T the; THINK A Bit? Rabbi Levi does not understand how a politican who starts a poor man can make $1,000,000. There are a good many unsophisticated citizens in this country who are in the same predicament as Rabbi Levi. They cannot understand now a statesman, while starting with nothing, could on a salary of $o,000, a year spend $12,000 or $15,000 a year to keep up style and get rich while doing it. Wilmington Star. Why don't you tell him to think a bit. Suppose you are elected on a : saiary 01 $a,uuo a year, ihen sup pose you succed in working a little scheme t'hat will enable some million aires to make a few more millions. Is a scheme worker doing this for nothing! See history of silver de monetization by John Sherman, and also history of one hundred and sixty two millions in bonds to the Kosth childs by Grover Cleveland out of whic,h bonds the Kosthchiids clique made eleven millions clear immedi ate profit and on which they will get over one hundred and ninety mil lions interest. DR. THOatPSOM WILL SUBMIT RKMABK8, soauE 1 he Caucasian has permission to nnounce that Dr. Cyrus Thompson will, at an early day, submit throutrh its columns a series of articles touch ing upon ms iamous "remark: 011 the church." It is not necessary for or us to iay to those who know Dr. Thompson' that these aitielea will not bs harsh. They will be fall of a broad humanity saeh as should char- aeteriie the whole people after the lessons and experience of thousands years of history, and they will operation of saeh Christianity as seems to be unknown to the ehurch. if the work and policy of the organ ized church are to be taken as an evidence of what they know. Tbe articles will be instructive as regards history, humane as to temper and ennobling as to theory. They should be read by everybody. EDITOIUAL. COMMENT. And now that marvellously magic "gold reserve" is down below the "one hundred million mark;" it stands at about eighty-two million. The rum blings of another steal (bond tasue) are being beard. If the people of North Carolina would assemble and declare that all their influence would be exerted to effect tbe repudiation of j any bonus issued after this date, we believe it would prevent further thiev ing along this line. All the other States joined her when she declared for independence in 1775, and they would join her in a movement of this kind in 1895. Kogues will not stop stealing until they are made to stop. The Atlanta Constitution prints a dispatch tttating that goldbug Demo crats are mad with Speaker Crisp for making a silver speech, and that they are going to work to prevent him from KeuiiJK me ueiuucrauc nomination lor Speaker in the next Congre-s. Of course the nomination would be an 'empty honor" but it would b a party compliment. Crisp's speech, uowever, has "trended; (irover the rat. lie has ordered Hoax Myth to make war on Crisp and so the war will proceed. in another column win be round a resolution passed by the American lirimetallic League in which they en dorse Senator Butler's plan for the or ganization of the united States Senate so as to defeat the gold bugs and put the silver men in control of the irapor tant committees. Senator Butler's plan will succeed if those Senators who were elected as silver men will vote for silver at this critical point Now is the time that their votes will count. Ihe people will see bow they vote. The old gang are still trying to put tbe tariff in front of the financial ques tion. A smart enort is being made to get the coming Congress embroiled on this question. I hen tbe old party pa pera wilPfill themselves chock full of tariff rows all for the purpose of try ingtomaKetne people iorget the great issue, bay, are you going to let them pull the wool over your eyes again? Senator Pugh, of Alabama, has an nounced that he will not be a candi date for re-election. Senator Push has been a silver man. Gov. Oates. the Democratic goldbug governor of that State, will try to succeed Senator Pugh, and J. F. Johnston, a free silver banker, will try to get the Democratic nomination for governor. Look out for another Kentucky squall. Ihe Charlotte Observer felicitates itself on the fact that the New - York Evening Post commends ''Merchant's" pamphlet. Wellthat's all right. We think we have already said that the editor of the Post was not a naturalized citizen of this country. lie is a foreigner and is in the service of foreign rings, cliques anu comoines. tuc tne Char lotte Observer boasts of hia praise of "Merchant" all the same. "We must retire the greenback." is t-ne slogan ot Cleveland, Carlisle and Co. This simply means that the power to issue money must be given to the banks. If you do not know what this means, you had better find oul. If you keep moving blindly on, you will soon tumble into a "slouch of desDond" irom wnicn nothing but death can ex. tricate you. We have said it before and we say it now. If the old parties and goldbugs fail to throw the financial issue in the shade by raising the tariff again, or if they fail to relegate it to the rear by some other means, then they will try 10 smocner it dv wild and nerce discus sions of foreign wars. Read the bank ers circulars elsewhere in this paper. And now a lot of Democrats have held a meeting in Tennessee and re solved that they were in favor of Free silver provided the Democratic party was in iavor 01 me same. And Cleve land and Carlisle and Co- are not in favor of it, and they are the Democratic party and these same Democrats would vote for either one of the gang if they were nominated, neet we respectfully request the Char lotte Observer to ask any individual reader of the Caucasian why he gets the paper if the esteemed Observer really wants to know. All we can say is mat we are not sending out any pa pers unless they are paid for at the rate asked. oecreiary uarnsie said in oncninc his goldbug speech before the Cham ber of Commerce, "I have but little to say this evening." There was more truth in that statement than in the whole of his speech, but he said a great muj nuius juau iu mi in me time. Wonder if some 6f these Democrats remember now they used to call a man a crank demagogue and anarchist. wnen he said that Wall street and the Rostbcbilds were running this govern incut, it nas not Deen much more than two years ago. A few weeks ago there was a michtv wave of disapproval among the State Democratic papers concerning the railroad lease. They are miehtv si- lent now. Has the word "silence" a been passed down the line? The Supreme court has decided that Mr. Stanford, who was a candidate for state librarian before the last legisla ture, was not amy elected because less tnan a quorum voted on his election. aecretary Carlisle has made a gold DUST Sncpf.h tMfnra tha Van Vn.lr Chamber of Commerce. Birds of feather dock togetner. wall street and Cleve - landism are one and the same thing. Mr. J. P.

".Lex" will have some more remarks to make concerning the "99 year rail road lease" in an early issue of the Caucasian. Bapld Western Style. From the Syracuse Post.J Summer and winter overlan in the West. A snow storm has just been caught putting out a forest fire. -X if Blast to ISMS of lail to read tbe article of "Lex on the tbe North Carolina Railroad. Tbe action of the State's proxy and tbe directors was in bad taste ard in opposition to tbe desire of the people. Had tbe actors in this matter been of tbe same political faith as were tbe ac tors when tbe lease was first made, tBf scandal would have been greater than that created by the lease in 1870. But some people seem to think they are privileged to do as they please and are exempt from criticism no matter what is tbe character of their official acts. The present contract of lease ought not to have been entered into. If tbe road is to be again leased tbe contract ought not to be made until just before tbe expiration of tbe lease now in force. If it is tbe policy of tbe State and private stockholders to lease tbe road again, tbe public interests demand that it shall be done in such manner as to invite tbe fullest competion and thereby obtain tbe highest rental. In this view it is to be hoped that a suit will be brought to prevent tbe consum mation of tbe present contract, and if it succeeds tbe Legislature will have directioas to give the State proxy as to bis duty when this question comes up again. Fata I'lay. Concord, N. C, Nov. 25.- LEX AND-TH AT fM YKAB R. R. LKASE." Having just read with much interest tbe learned, elaborate and interesting article of Lex on "That m Year K. K. Lease," and without going into the merits of the wisdom of the transac tion, as one of tbe people, I wish to know more of the matter, particularly irom me srana point tasen by Lx, which seems to be new. If tbe people can only cet the facts, if they can be informed of their rights and privileges they can be trusted to do what is best for themselves and tbe best interest of North Carolina ; but as has been clearly suireested, so many newspapers are under obligations to railroads ' and their ollicers and asrents, that their bands are tied, their months are closed and they are hence largely shorn of their power to save tbe people from railroad and other corporate influ ences. As the Caucasian seems to be free from such biases and independent of them, it is hoped that this 99 year railroad lease will be thoroughly and critically examined, that the lights will be turned on, and that all phases of the -question will be properly and dispassionately discussed. By these means the people become informed, educated and given the data upon which to act intelligently. Let not tbe people nor the press fear corporate power, because they are rich and mighty. Let them not bow the knee of Baal, but let them show that they are sovereign and rulers in North Carolina, and that no corporation either foreign or domestic can dictate what they shall and shall not do. Let us have another letter from Lex. Let us give the people all the facts, and the law bearing upon the facts in order that they may act wisely and well. B. F. Moktague. Raleigh, N. C, Nov. 25. A STRONG POSITION LEASK. AGAINST THE Takboro, N. C, Aov, 25th, '95 Tbe article by "Lex" in the last issne of the Caucasian was evidently writ ten by a learned and skillful technical lawyer, lie took a strong position against tbe lease of the N. C. Kailroad and in tbe course 01 his argument ad mirably sustained his view of the mat ter. The Alliance can do the people xf the State a valuable service in testiner the validity of the lease in the courts and I trust immediate 6teps will be ta ken to undo the infamous work of the directors, who by their action, Virtual ly sold the state s interest in the road in spite of the vehement protests of the press and the State Alliance. Jvery County Alliance in the State should contribute to aid in the fight for the preservation of - the State's rights and interest in this valuable property. 1 am sure that ".Lex's" timely article will be endorsed by the people through out tne Mate. James B. Lloyd. A WORD FROM BUNCOMBE Correspondence of the Progressive Farmer. Asnevuie, . c. 1 would like to say a few words in regard to tbe lease of the North Carolina Railroad through tne medium 01 your most valuable pa per. wnen 1 look around me, in our fair Western North Carolina, and see thousands of bushels of apples, not to say anything of the other valuable farm products, actually rotting on tbe ground and going to waste for the want of reasonable transportation ; the more 1 see and feel tbe great and tin pardonable injustice that is being done tbe people of the State. Here are- all of these things going to ruin simply because it costs more to get them to market than can be realized out of them after they are there. And at the same time, a rich railroad company is realizing a tremendous revenue out of a railroad that belongs to tbe people of the state., it matters not how much they may pay the State for the use of it, they will,realize a large profit out of it, and that, too, out of those to whom the road belongs. The step taken by tbe State Alliance at its last session should be approved by every citizen of the State of North Carolina who feels an interest in him self and in the welfare cf his fellow man. It should show those who have become lukewarm in the work of the Order that through the Alliance is tbe only means by which the farmer can become independent, or can cope with the monopolies and trusts that have been combined against him.

Tbe Democratic Meering commit tee wrestled with it all day Thursday and after a boneless disagreement ad journed the consideration of tbe matter until tbe meeting of the Democratic caucus. "We are put in a ugly fir," observed Western silver Senator, "and there appears to be only one way out of it. we cam consistently antagonize Sen ator Butler's suggest ion, yet it will not do to allow a Republican Senator to take tbe initiative in the matter. Sen ator Harris, of Tennessee, recognized as an ultra free silver Democrat, will be the Democratic caucus nominee for president pro tern of tbe Senate. That will make our record straight." rhis is the Democratic plan, but from what has leaked out it appears that tbe. gold Democrats will not sup port Harris. Tlie steering committee hopelessly divided on tbe Harris pro position. It will be submitted to cau cus and the gold Iiemocrats must sub mit to tbe disposition made of it by tbe caucus., some of -them openly assert that they will not be controlled by tbe caucus.

It is conceded on all bands that the issue between gold monometalism and bi metalism should be made too plain for misrepresentation er equivocation in tbe approaching presidential cam paign. It is practically conceded that tbe money question will be tbe domi nant issue of 18. There is some ef fort now, and it will be followed later with more vigor, on the part of Repub lican leaders to subordinate it to the tariff, but it will not succeed. The Republican policy, so far as disclosed, is to nominate Mr. Harrison and make tbe mistakes and incapacity of Demo cratio administration tbe party plat form. "It looks well from a theoretical standpoint," said a Western silver Sen ator, "but it would cost tbe Republican Sarty every electoral vote west of the Lissouri river." This is not an isolated opinion. The Republicans must "toe the mark" on the silver question. It Will not down at the bidding of any party, and the overwhelming public sentiment, in the country that sustains it will not submit. to its subordination to any otber question.
