KTKIKIMO OI1.IKCT LESSON 4.
About two months ago Capt. S. A.
Ahe, wbo is a well equipped journ
alist, started a paper in Italeigh
called "The State." Capt. Anbe
showed cloaily in bis editorials each
week that hard times and low prices
were caused by the gold-standard
chiefly, and that timea would" never
be better till we had more money;
but at tbe same time be called upon
tbe people to stay in tbe Democratic
party even if tbey bad to vote for a
goldbug candidate for President.
Ho said bo did not want more moay
and better times unless be could get
it through tbe Democratic party.
The paper has suspended. It died
in a few weeks because- tbe people
would not subscribe for it or read it
Tbe goldites say tbat this is proof
tbat tbe silver sentiment is dying
out. Not so! Ou the other band it
is proof of bow well informed the
people are and bow strong tbeir con
victions are on tbis financial quea
Capt. Ashe's paper was ably edit
ed and if anyone could have made a
paper, advocating such an inconsis
tent position, elf-sustaining, he
could. No paper advocating such
& policy can run in North Carolina
unless it is supported by corporation
or goldbug money. The goldbugs
will gladly put up money to run a
free silver paper, if that paper will
advise the people to stay in the old
parties and vote for tbe goldbug
nominees of the old parties.
We don't know whether the gold
men offered to put up money for
Capt- Ashe's paper or not, but it is
clear that he did not take their
money if they did.
If Capt. Asbe bad said that he fa
vored freo silver and financial ro
form and called upon the people to
sfand by tbe resolution passed at
the silver convention in Raleigh, on
Sept. 2oth, and to vote against gold
bugs no matter what party nomina
ted them, his paper would have been
a big success. The people aro tired
of being humbugged.

subject would be. "Why freo silver
men should stay in tho Democratic
When he went to Savannah to
speak on such an absurd subject,
only en vim went out to hear him.
The gold men say that this is proof
that the silver sentiment is dying
out. Not so! It is proof that tbe
people are tired of being humbug
ged on this question.
It Mr. Bland will advertise that
he will speak in Savannah, and that
his subject will be, "It is timafor
patriots to stand together against

NO. 3. VEST AND HIS sriECH.
Senator, Vest recently made a
speech in which he showed that the
goldbug policy of Cleveland and
Sherman had contracted the money
of this country down to $3. SI per

It is learned from this morning's Wash

Tbe Observer shows great care
lessness or eithergreat meanness by
Ihe above paraeraph. It seeks to
leave the impression that The Cau
casian denies that it has no unpaid
subscriptions and yet quotes a man
as saying "that it comes to him un
asked for," intending to make it ap
pear that The Caucasian has made
a false statement. The errammar of
tbe Observer is about as groggy as its
effort to put The Caucasian in a
false light. To begin with the "gen
tleman writing over his own signa
ture" does not deny the statement
of The Caucasian that it has no un
paid for subscriptions. He simply
says he did not subscribe Well
then, somebody subscribed for him
and sent us the money, r nd to save
us we could not tell who sent it
without a considerable search
through cur files. We presume there
have been numerous instances in
which soma reader of The Cauca
sian has sent the paper to an ac
quaintance or friend. Do the read
ers of the Observer think enough of
that paper to do the same thing or

the leading Democratic Senators liave
proven themselves to be on
party lines? The Poplist Sena
tors appealed to all silver men,
regardless of party, to organize on sil
ver lines. Those who were elected as
silver men could have done this, but
they didn't. They stuck to their rotten,
corrupt old sranes. Then the l'opuiists
were compelled to oreaK away irora

Senate bill (212) to require payment of
pension money to tcive in cases where
male pensioners desert or abandon their

as this is a downright admission that

A dispatch was lately sent East from
San Francisco saying that a Japanese
agent bad taken very large orders there
for goods to be made In Japan and to
be delivered here free of freight and
duty at from 30 to 100 per rent, less
than prevailing wholesale prices of the
same goods; and that agencies for such
Japanese goods are being established
in tbe principal cities of the Kat.
A number of our large manufactured
products were described as being in
cluded in this competition from Japan;
this list of products, however, is sec
ondary to the fact, that Japan in con
sequence of tbe low costs of labor there,
and the 100 per cent, bounty it ha
over our manufacturers in tbe differ
ence between the price of silver bul
lion compared with gold bullion, is now
able to undersell any class of goods
made in this country.
