S f?J t11 concentration of wealth in the hands of the few, with its consequent decay of men and de struction of civilization. Seeing that Christianity could neither be suppressed nor disregard ed, the only course left to those who would lord it over their fellows, the enemies of human freedom-the Chrtstly estimate of the value of a man - was to enter the Church and control it. In the year 312, by im perial edict Christianity and all re ligions were tolerated, out of regard, it was said, for the sacred rights of conscience. The growing strength of the Christian community now made it politic for the Empire to win undivided support, says Moeller. The emperor Constantino, therefore, for political reasons, pre pared for himself a splendid conver sion to Christianity. In the clear sky at midday, he beheld a flaming cross with the inscription "By this Conquer!" He obeyed the heavenly vision and prepared to conquer in that sign. His zeal for his new faith was exuberant. Ho threw himself at the hedd of its affairs, and inaug urated a long milleniumof unbroken oppression. He called a great coun cil of the Church at Nice, in the year 325, by which a system of doc trine was determined upon as the ono infallible creed. It received tho rii ritnl" Hf'1l.!eil!nn!M D.nAf inn nw1 A & 1 A 11 uuui-i , vuiuiiauur I uvuu auu luict) ui law. ro wnif.n tne Emperor felt it bis duty to com pel subordination. Men of dissent ing opinion were condemned and persecuted as heretics. Since the 2d century a bitter controversy had gone on concerning the Trinity. Arms, a priest of Alexandria, had recently denied the equality of the DEMOCRAT 1 ARE DEMORALIZED lowers to exile, consigned his books to the names, and thus firmly set the Church's seal against liberty of conscience and the spirit of inde pendent thought and inquiry. In further illustration of the b:nl ivoivtil itself to freedom and intli'i'i'ii'Sftice." Tracing further, however, tho course of unregenerate Imminityin the Church, this histo rian continues: "But the Jewish print U'lo pressed in onco more from jiriothir quarter. The Jewish posi turn was better adapted to the mass winch needed lirst to be train- oon with the Father. The council nl I t I'l'ii it could apprehend Chris- of Nice condemned him and bis fol tianity iu its purity. Out of the Church, now bocamo independent, a pritu ii'ln onco more sprang forth akin to tlm principle of the Old Tes tament. This investiture of the Christian spirit, iu a form nearly akin to tho position aimed at in the Ohl Testament, could not fail to un i'oM itself more and more and to hri: .g to light one after another all tlm i'oQst'iuenccs which it involved." While tho method of Jesus was to bniltl up the individual and the apos tolic commission was to convert the woi iti ny teaching, regarding always the rights of conscience, the Church losing His spirit and being in so far ntiic of His, very early gave over the 1 i vino method and built itself into power by the diabolical method of force. If Christ discovered the individual tasted death for every man, thus astonishing tho world with tho Father's priceless estimate of the value and dignity of a mere man. however humble and vile, the organization which assumed His nauio became intolerant of conscien tious difference and ruthlessly de structive of individual right and hu man freedom. For the notion of force involves the idea of subjec tion, ami intolerance with power is most ruinous slavery. With Christ there was no lording it over men for mastery. That was the manner of the Gentiles. His was to bo a conquest of living and teaching, a became a Prince of lYacp, not compulsory acceptance or rejection of opinion. Even Judas went without hindrance. But the Church, when it despaired of heal ing what it termed error by Christly means, always resorted to the sure 'leiitilo method of authority. "The Church was the only conservator of truth and sacred tradition." Who ever impugned its tradition and doc triue met cruel persecution at the liatuls of the Church. This is the spirit that domiuatcd the Church ii vt only century, even before tho world was palled in Church's intolerance, we may recall the conduct of Christians A. D. 413 15 under the lead of Cyril, Patriarch 01 Alexandria, a churchman typi cally oager in peisecution of all heresy. They destroyed the Jews synagogue, plundered their goods, and drove them out of their unbe lief. They seized Hypatia, a woman learned, beautiful and modest, who opposed the views of the Patriarch, dragged her from her chariot on the public street, shamelessly stripped her clothes from her body, and tore her body limb from limb. This was an earnest manifestation of what should bo common at the hands of tho Church for twelve centuries. In Constantinople a Christian em peror expelled the Jews and con verted their svnagoguo into the "Church of the Mother of God." In Italy the rights of Jews, thongh unabridged by Paganism, were cur tailed by Christian emperors. In Western Europe the Jews lived un disturbed until their peace was bro ken by a victorious Church. In Burgundy, King Sigismund, embra cing the Catholic faith inolC ' raised the barrier between Jews and Chris tians." Sisebul, in Spain, in GIG issued an edict, at the instance of a Christian emperor, that the Jews should either embrace Christianity or be shorn, scourged, and banished with confiscation of their property Under the rule or the floors in Spain, who gave unbelievers the choice of Koran, tribute, or sword the condition of the tormented Jew was more tolerable than in any Christian land. Gregory the First surnamed the Great and Holy, pic turea the attitude of his time when he advised that Jews should be eon from the 5th to the 15th verted by persuasion and gentleness as Dv. Kiigo admits, out and not by violence; while tanatica bishops none tho less "thought op the irloom of those dark centuries; nression of the Jews a pious work and at tne proper timo we saau at the proper timo we shall m- "luiro whether this same spirit is not manifest in the Church from the l"th century until now. From the close of the 1st to the hejrinning of tho 4th century, the Church, in its minority, was itself the subject of repeated persecution. It nevertheless crew, and by the middle of tho 3d century it was a formidable power in the State. The persecution of it ceased with tho furious onslaught under Diocletian in the beginning of the 4th century, when it became ovident that it could m itlic i t o suppressed nor disregard cl. If it languished amid the pHjrauisni of th rural districts, it 11 urishe'.l iu the cities, centres then as now of wealth, power, and cor ruption. The religion, whose essen tial luudo and principles should have he. u the candid doctrines taught in the Sermon on the Mount, was early loaded with sacrificial ceremonies atul doctrines beyond the toaching3 of tie early Hebrew?. Whether due to the aggressive influence of eur-roti-uling paganism, or to a desire a the part of the Church to eon form to its environment for the sake of numbers and advantage the like is net unknown in lale times it was carried so far even in the 2d century that Hadrian described Christianity as tho worship of Serapis. Never theless this was the "Church." It retained and developed its Jew ish coloring, ami raised withiu it a prie tly caste; but it lost the idea that (lod is love, the cardinal truth which the Father had taken such in finite pain to teach by His incarnate Word.

SOME PERSONAL. l'OINTS. Both of the North Carolina Senators have made a fine impression in the Senate. Senator Pritchard is already distinguished as a Republican leader. liis appointmenton the steering com mittee gives him immediate promi nence and influence in the Senate. The latter he will use to the advance nomination of Senator Harris ftr President, pio tempore, in case Ibe Republicans should decide to at tempt to select one of their cumber for this office. There were several iptechef, on the poliey of reorganization of the committees, and all were favorable to permitting the Republicans to take them in case they should decide that they wished to do so. Among those who spoke on this line were Sena tors Vest, Blackburn, and Mills. Mo opposition was developed to this plan. The six members of the old committee who are to constitute a part of the new committee are Sena tors Gorman, Cockrell, Harris, Black burn, Brice, and Jones of Arkanas. HYPOCRITES UNMASKED.

Washington, Dec. 13. "Senator But ler," says the Washington 4-iost." ''does not seem eager to rush into the Republican caucus and give the organ ization of the Senate t the Republi cans." It never has been Senator Butler's purpose to enter a Republican caucus. Contrary statements are in tentional misrepresentations. On his arrival in Washington, two weeks in advance of the meeting of Congress, he suggested a conference between sil ver men with a view to reorganizing the Senate on an INDEPENDENT SILVER BASIS His efforts were directed to that end and that the movement collapsed only when the Democrats, alarmed at the prospect of doing a material service in the interest of silver, surrendered the committee control of the Senate to the Republicans. All that Populist per sistence might effect was thus thwart ed, and that all was not lost is no fault of the Democratic minority. Control of the Finance Committee has been se cured through the united effort of THE POPULIST 8ENATORS. inat control will be maintained in the next Congress, when the House, elected in 1896, will be in accord with the silver sentiment now dominant in the Senate, The President elected next year, ii not a lree silver man, will be elected by a Republican House, and, in the face of the overwhelming popular remonstrance at the polls against the gold policy, he will not dare " VETO A FREE SILVER BILL. At no time during the earnest agita tion of the silver question has the prospect of success been so much as sured as now. The cowardly abandon ment of the tight by silver Democratic Senators when the struggle was at a crisis, will be resented and condemned by a betrayed people in 1896. The HYPOCRITES HAVE BEEN UNMASKED and the credit belongs to the six Populist Senators who have stoDd courageously by the people at the ex pense of their own party identifica tions. They were willing to ignore party and unite in a common effort to advance and PROTECT THE CAUSE OF SILVER in the reorganization of the Senate. When the suggestion was first made by Senator Butler lie disclaimed any House of Representatives dariotri that period, except the salaries and I mileage of members, which are pid tbrmgb the se; eoant-at-arms.

For The Caucasian. The People's party was bom of the necessity for genuine reform in this nation. There is no use of any idla persuasion of its member be cause they will never give up its platform as set forth at Omaha. Every one of its planks was well considered, and discussed freely be fore being accepted as a part of the organic law of the party. Each of them met an emergency of the times, and in my judgment will be finally enacted into national law. Some of these demands may be made more definite, and possibly may be put in a more abbreviated form; but I am certain they will never be narrowed down to a single, silver plank. We can be. ami will le, just as strong for the free and un limited coinage of silver," with all the planks therein as if only a silver plank constituted the whole fabric. But whatever the course of the na tional convention may bo it certainly cannot afford to take a backward step after having marshalled two million of votes for all of its prin ciples, it would be simply going back on the original landmarks and the thousands who aro in readiness to come with us just as soon as the two old parties shall nominate their gold standard candidates. But there can be a basis of union whereby all silver men can get to gether and hold to their identical platforms. For instance, let the na tional People's Party hold their con vention and reiterate their prin ciples. Let the silverites from the two old parties do the same on the same day 'and in the same city, and adopt their silver platform and whatever reform planks they think will be to the best interest of the country. These two platforms will not differ materially as to reform, both being for "silver and reform." There can be no serious breach in platforms when both are for reform.

It is certain tbat the demonetiza tion of silver is necessary to the re turn of .permanent prosperity to this country. It is certain that the hard times which we are passing tbroogb at present are attributable to the de struction cf the money jaality, which silver possessed, when it was the - PKtR Or GOLD in the money of the Republic It is certain that the money quality of silver was destroyed to increase the value of every speriis of national and other indebtedness. It is cer tain there can never again be an era of prosperity in this country, so long as our s'ateemen and politicians are willing to do the BIDIUXa OF KXULAXP, and compel our people to pour their wealth into the lap's of English and other foreign capitalists. Tbe above propositions are evi dent. Tbey need nothing in the way of elaboration or argument to make them more evident, or to add to their force. Tbe man who does not admit them to be evident is either incapable of seeing and feel ing tbe force of any proposition whatsoever, or he be is controlled by fK)ME MOTIVE C F INTERESTS. which leads him are evident. Tq put it plainly, the man who de nies that the above propositions are evident i3 either iarnorant, or blind ed to the truth hy private greed, or by party passion. There are some other piopositions, which I will now lay down, which are equally evident, and equally forceful, with those above laid down. It is certain that tho remonetiza tion and free coinage of silver will never come can never come to the people of this country through the Ilepublioan party. That party will be called, by impartial and pas sionless history, THE CRIMINAL PARTY, which first obeyed orders from Eng land, and consummated the crime of silver's destruction in this country, in 1873. That party has resisted. with all its mean might, every effoit which has been made, since 1S73, to undo the grttal wroug, which it thea perpetrated. That party, not only committed the great crime, at tbe first, but it has used all its great ability, and every one of its great opportunities to justify and perpet uate its SILVER PARTY. And this conducts to tbe appeal which this article was designed to make. The writer humbly appeals to all silver men of all parties, to unite to gether in this crisis, to secure the RESTORATION OF SILVER to its rightful place in the monetary system of the Itepablic. Brethren, wo have a common country; we have common struggles, entailed by.-the wicked system which has destroyed t la a . one-nan oi me people s money; we are threatened by a common danger; we are confronted by a common foe; we have common convictions: can not we HAVE COMMON SENSE, and common goodness enough to get together, and drive these wicked money changers and money manipu lators from the Temple of Freedom Let those who are skilled tn aneh things, appoint the time and place, and let us organize our entire forces for the struggle of lh'JG.

In Senator Butler the Senate and the newspaper people expected a long haired, wild-eyed, unkempt crank. They found a modest, dignified, self- composed, well deressed, plain MAN OF THE PEOPLE. In the l:.rst days "write up" of the Sen ate the correspondents agreed that he is "one of the handsomest men in the Senate." The New York Times describ ing him as he took the oath, said, "the successor of the courtly Ransom was fastidiously dressed and is the hand somest man in the Senate." He sits op. the Republican side of the Chamber, because got a better seat on that side. His nearest neighbor is the distin guished Knute Nelson, who, like Sena tor Butler, never encountered politi cal reverse. He differs from his pre decessor in promptly ANSWERING ALL LETTEKS. Patronage doesn't worry him, because he hasn't got it to bestow. He wishes earnestly for the repeal of the civil service law of "farce and fraud" and he will use every effort to effect its emasculation if repeal is impossible. Both Senators are happily married men. They are housekeeping and are neighbors. Their wives are sensible North Carolina women and both are deeply interested in the public career of their respective Husbands. Tney KEEP OPEN HOUSE brought about by Senators ,who elected as silver men, ana wno were pledged to that interest. The determ ination of Democratic leaders to sacri fice silver at the dictation of the gold men, who will control the Na tional convention next year, hardly needed fresh demonstration. The lesson is timely, however, and if the popular protest that reaches Washington from Christians in the Crusades of the 11th and 12th centuries hunted Jews and slew them like wild beasts They were banished from England in the 13th century until Cromwell winked at their return in 1C54. At a former time in Englaud and France the Church kept the Jews out of all pursuits but usury, which it de clared infamous. The Jew, how ever, like many a zealous church man of to-day, took the risk of hell for sake of gain 40 per cent, to 80 per cent, interest, and laid tho foun dation of that wealth which has made him the world s banker and master of nations. In the 12th century in Southern France where, it is said, the Church had absolutely ceased to perform its proper functions and the clergy en tirolv forfeited by their lives its an thoritv. the Albieenses were found in mtoH acrainst the Church. The to all JNortn Carolina people, it is Southern constituencies mean any- for silver. thing, the treacherous leaders will be WITHOUT A FOLLOWING at the next election. The situation is full of hope for silver. The hypocri sy of Democrats who clamor for silver "inside tbe party" is now well estab lished. It is meaningless and is INTENDED TO DECEIVE the more credulous in the rank and file of the party. There is no place in theJDemocratic party for an honest sil- rrk. 1aM.. k:.

Secretary Carlisle has prepared his annual communication to Congress transmitting estimates of appropria tions that will be required for running the government during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1897.

A recapitulation by depart ment is as follows : aid and comfort to, the party that DESTROYED SILVER, as money, in the first instance, and persists in its wickedness, even un til now, and serves notice on all the world, that it means to persist in its wickedness " to the end of the chapter. It is certainly true tbat none can have a good title to be called friends of silver who are wil ling to submit themselves to the PRESENT ASD FCTCRE UOMIN'ATIOS of the Republican party. It is certain tbat the rehabilitation of silver cannot be had in this coun try through the Democratic party. That party has reversed its record upon this subject; it has disregarded all its tradition;; its leaders have basely and meanly them and the Populists combined, and a noble victory over the goldi cs.
