THE CONVICTION OF M ATT KBM KL
The people must have an. honest
and intelligent government. Their
will has for years been thwarted by
cheating at the polls, hut we hope
the last election law wiii put an end
Hut this is not all. Intelligent
and incorruptible men must be sent
to the legislature to put into the
form of law the will of their constit
uents. The bare suggestion that a
bill has by wilful negligence or cor
ruption been enrolled and ratified,
and thus made the law of the land,
is a disgrace to the State.
At the last Superior court of
Wake, the jury declared that in the
passage of the notorious "Assign
ment Act," the Chief Clerk of the
House was guilty of wilful negli
gence, and the Chief Enrolling Clerk
guilty of wilful and corrupt negli

We do not propose to attack the
solicitor for prosecuting Satterfield
and Brown. We must compliment
him for the zeal and ability with
which he prosecuted for the State.
But he has not gone far enough. We
suspect certain persons who
were the prime movers in this cor
ruption, but we are not at present
prepared to furnish the names and
the evidence; and therefore we can
not ask him to draw and send to the
grand jury a bill of indictment.
But in the name of honesty, in the
name of the right of the people to
make their own laws, we do insist that
he have this matter thoroughly in
vestigated by the next grand jury.
If he will do this we promise to
give him the names of certain
persons who, we think, can throw
light on the subject. Turn on all

An effort is to be made at the pre
sent session of Congress to have the
Department of Labor, which is at
present under a commissioner who is
not a member of the Cabinet, made
a full-fledged executive department,
with a secretary of Cabinet rank at
its head. A bill to this effect has
been introduced by Representative
Babcock, of Wisconsin. .The meas
uie provides, also, for the appoint
ment of an assistant secretary, and
for the payment of both secretary
and assistant secretary of the same
salaries paid to similar officials in
other department. The introducer
of the bill argues that the industrial
classes are as clearly entitled to have
an executive department of Cabinet
rank to represent them as are the
agriculturists, and that while the
heads of the other departments may
be friendly to labor, they cannot
give questions affecting labor the

MAYOR FOUNTAIN, OF TARBORO
Declares Thit Both the Old Parties Are Fake acd Unreliable
Strong Facts Cited As Proof He Declares That All Patriots
Should Join The Populists In The Interest Of The Good Of
Takboho, N. C, Jan. Oth, 185.
Editor The Caucaiax : I attended the non-partisan Silver conven
tion held in llaleigh n Sept. 25th, 189j, as a business man and a iVmo
crat, believing that honest convictions were paramount to party and every
other consideration when the weifvre and happiness of the masses were
involved. It was my purpose to support a movement which 1 considered j
of supreme importance to our people. I had hoped, inasmuch as the call
for the convention was issued by leading Democrats, and endorsed by
Populists and Republicans, that steps would be taken whereby all advo
cates for the restoration of silver could be united, and demonstrate to tbe
people that they were sincere and earnest in declaring for tbe free coinage
Party paltforms, with double meaning, have been used for the purpose
of obtaining power. None of the pledges were fulfilled, and the honest
party adherents have been betrayed.
Partisanship should no longer control men when great principles, tend
ing to tbe relief of the people are at stake.
As the financial question is considered so momentous, it was expected
that party spirit would be laid aside, and all would unite at the IUleigh
convention. After attending the caucus on the evening prior to its assem
bling, (in which all parties were represented) and having listened to the
speeches of such prominent men as Jarvis, Ashe, Davis, Whitaker, Mott,
Harris, Butler and Kitchen, that aroused and kindled patriotic emotions and
elicited Buch applause, when all declared that the convention was in the
interest of humanity and above party great was my surpriss when some
of those present the day before failed to attend and participate in the de
liberations of the convention next day. Hence my remark to the News
and Observer reporter: That the convention had opened the way for in
dependent action on the part of all sincere silver Democrats:"
I did not expect anything bui false-playing on the part of the Ransom
administration element, but I did expect to see Senator Jarvis, to whom
many were looking for leadership, throw himself with zeal into the move
ment. His failure to do so, and the subsequent declaration of the Dem
ocratic leaders and newspapers to prove their sincerity in support of bi
metallism by the endorsement of the resolutions adopted by the conven
tion, have convinced me that the game of deception is to be practiced, and
party prejudices appealled to. 1
My object in writing this letter is to emphasize the statement in regard
to independent action, and to say that -ire are in earnest in our ad
vocacy of the silver question, that the time has come for the people to rise
above party and think and act for themselves. Selfishness, greed, and bit
ter political intolerance have dominated and corrupted the two old parties,
and proven a curse to this and the coming generation, by placing upon
them burdens too grievous to be borne.
We, as freemen, should break loose from these fetters and influences, or
they will eventually doom us as a nation.
With the dawn of the twentieth century let us achieve greater advance
ment in Christian civilization, institute a new order of reforms, whereby
burdens may be lightened and mankind lifted, and be known in history as a
mighty natioirof the most enlightened and brilliant age of the world the
electric age, when touched by Divine love formed a mighty current and
man stood to man as brother.
Both of the old political parties have shown that they are on tbe side of
Mammon. The People's Party was born of necessity. Its mission is to
work- out the reforms demanded by the multitude. It behooves all pa
triots to join it and aid in promoting the good of humanity. It has been
ridiculed, misrepresented and spit upon by politicians and gold-worshippers.
Did they do less to Christ ? W. E. Fountain.
Say, when you read the Congres
sional reports do you observe a very
significant fact) You may easily
see that Senator Butler has put that
professing silver gang in a hole in
the Senate. His resolutions have
brought that body face to face with
the great issue of the day, and it be
gins to look as though he will make
those old duffers and dodgers show
what they mean, And now when
they can't dodge without showing
the cloven foot, they are trying to
steallButler's thunder. Old Mills, of
Texas, and old Pugh, of Alabama,
have both introduced resolutions of
the same nature of those introduced
by Butler and are making big speech
es on them. But it seems they are
in no hurry to come to a vote and
make a record. Do you see ?
The great bond syndicate has been
dissolved. This means an ending of
the scandalous secret deals. But the
bonds will be issued all the same if
something does not happen quick.
This is but littls less scandalous than
the secret bond business. The men
who composed the syndicate have
still got the gold, and they will yet
get the bonds. They will not make
quite so much as they did before,
but they will make more in the long
run than the bonds will amount to. In
thirty years they will get one hund
red and twenty million dollars inter
est on one hundred million dollars
(face) of bonds, and then the gov
ernment will have to redeem the
bonds as well.
Senator Butler put both old parties
in a hole when he told them on the
floor of the Senate a few days ago
that he could pledge either side six
People's Party votes that would vote
to stop the issue of bonds. He went
further and said that either side
could get six votes (which would
give to either side a majority) now
or any hour when they saw fit to of
fer or try to pass r.ny measure for
the relief of the American people.
Neither side can now escape respon
sibility for want of votes enough to
make a majority.
If the Democratic papers that are
so persistently "trying" (trying is
all) to misrepresent the .North Caro
lina Senators, would have the com
mon decency and fairness to print
some of their speeches, their readers
would see what colossal falsifiers
these demy papers are. But of all
things desired by this disgusting
Democratic crew, the most desired
is that these speeches shall not get
before the people. But they'll "get
there all the same ! "
The fact that the North Carolina
senior Senator is making himself
ieit ana aoing sometmng is a source
of agonizing annoyance and desper
ate i age to Democrats in this State.
ne is getting more cussing and more
abuse than any ether man who ever
held the same position from the old
North State, and the "wherefore"
from whence this dirty and malig
nant abuse eomes is the best evidence

Government Ownership of Railroads.
Mayor Pingree, of Detroit, Mich,
in a recent address on
stated "that in Australia
ride 1,000 miles across country for
$6.50, first class, while workmen can
ride six miles for 1 cents, while rail
road men receive 1) tto 30 per cent
more wages for eight hours ;of labor
than they ate paid in this country
for ten hours. In Hungary, where
the roads are owned bv the State
you can ride six miles for 1 cent, and
since the roads were bought by the
government the men's wages have
1 1 1 Va a .
aouDieu. Belgium tells the same
story, and, moreover, derives $4,000
000 a year from the railroads. In
Germany you can ride four miles for
i cent on state roads and wages are
125 per cent higher than under pri
As the above figures show, crov
ernment ownership of railroads is
proving a great success in Australia
Germany.Hungary and other coun
tries. Passengers are carried for
less than one-third the rate per mile
cnarged by railroad corporations in
tnis country, the employees receiv
ing better pay and the tax burdens
of the people are relieved by the
large income arising from the opera
tion ot governments roads. Everv
objection to government ownership
nas oeen met and settled in favor of
Gold for Sis Goats.
The remarkable discoveries of irnld
recently made in Colorado causes the
Denver Road to get off the following:
Colorado's eold is measured bvth
gold standard. Southern cotton is
measured by the eold standard
Western wheat is measured bv the
gout biauuaru. eastern labor is
i j i i . . . j
measured by the cold standard
Middle States moitgages are aU pay-
aoie in goia. -
Scratch your ear and reflect.
Can't the "silver barons1' of rl
orado and the "mine owners' of Col

and smile at tbe discomforture of
those who haven't eold to sell on void
The "silver barons" and "mine
owners' of Colorado are now all pro

tne east can.
The hieher eold is the ehentwa Col
orado can buy her cotton, wool and
pork, and the eheaper the mortgage
ridden d fools of the middle, west
and south must sell us the stuff.
Our on tout of o-nld for iRn. w;n k.
folly as ereak as onr sa.tar nnlnnt
of silver ever was. In 1896 Colorado
will produce not less than evt nnn

The "silver barons of Colorado
greet the ehnekleheaded east and
south who oppose "free coinage" be
cause it is "Colorado silver mm
owners' proposition. If that section
or uod's green earth ean stand it.
we will guarantee that Colorado ean.
Wow! Think of
