THAT 09 YEAR KAILKOAD LEASE. In a recent issue we briefly state that the suit brought by the Alii anco concerning the "U'J year rail road lease" had been withdrawn And that we would have more to say About it. We present this week a srAtement from Prof. John Graham which leaves little, if anything, to oe said, it reveals the fact that th Allilnra Via. V : i mcu wuippeu in sti honest fight to have this scandalous deal passed upon by the courts o justice. Who did the whipping? la the beginning of the fieht tin Attorney-General was applied to for perm ssion to bring suit for an in junction against the lease, the only purpose of the Alliance being to pie- V A Tl t illA Itnn Qn n m a 4 : a - . . - y.ucumuiinivu oi me se cret deal at Burlington by which tne Mate was grossly wronged Thi r """iciuscu. j.nen ap plication was made for permission to bring suit to annul the charter of the North Carolina railroad, or such other relief as the court may see fit A - t- I il io oringin me premises. We are not prepared to charge the Attorney-General with wilfully set ting trap here, but whether he in tended it or not there was one, and a very ingenious one. He granted permission to bring suit to vacate the eharter, but left out the clause or "such other relief &c. This per mission made it appear that the Al liance was trying to 'destroy this great State property" Ae. Ae., and something of a one and cry was raised about it, and especially by the Democratic preas. The Alliance never intended any such thing, but there was the application, and the little free pass papers kept np the barking. Efforts were made to find one or more private stockholders for the purpose of getting the use of their stock to bting suit against the lease. Mr. I'. C. Thomas had stock, and the Alliance was led to believe thAt they eould get the use of it. A bond was made ready to indemnify Mr. ThomAS against all possible loss that might result from the suit, and be was tele graphed to bring tne stock to Ral eigh. Hut something "Beared" bint off or got him off in some other way. The neit thing he did was to boom that lease as the best thing that ever happened in the State. . . . Then Mr. and Mrs. I'oter Cobb, ef Greensboro, came to the rescue with their stock. They were given a bond to secure them against all pos sible coat or lota. A suit was en tered in their name. Then they got ' aeared" off. Cobb is reported to have said that some one "scared him to death" (he has only one share of stock) and he signed a retraxit of the suit in his name to get peace. The name of the lawyer who pre pared the retraxit does not appear on the paper. 11 is handwriting is unknown to Alliance counsel. There seems to be still more secret deals about the secret deal. Well, there you are. The Allli ance has been foiled in two efforts to get the uso of private stock to bring suit against the lease. It would bo foiled in many other ef forts of the same kind. However, it is probable that but few efforts of this kind could be made. There are but few private stockholders. Most all the stock has been bought up by railroad magnates and is in their hands; therefore it is quite proper to cry out that the private stock holders are satisfied with the deal. I3utthe people who have an inter est in three-fourths of the stock of the road are not satisfied. The Alliance, not desiring to an nul the charter, withdraw the suit so kindly granted by the Attorney General. If any one will come for ward with stock for the purpose, he will be given a bond to indemnify him lrom all loss, and the Alliance will try to proceed with the suit. What was the cause of the sud den and panicky backdowns of those parties whose stock was to be used for bringing suit to annul the lease Did the railroad intermeddle there We don't say so, because we can' prove that it did; but we have our opinions on all matters, and you juat ought to hear us think about this one. WOT TKl'E ALLEGIANCE TO FIIIMC1 FLE AMOVE PARTY. Tho Charlotte Observer says that it has it from reliable sources that Senator Butler has agreed to a f us ion with the organised Democracy on certain terms. It ma.it be a very re-lie-able source. The Caucasian has it direct from Senator Butler that this charge is untrue. Senator Batler says that he had every time stated, when such an arrangement has been proposed or suggested, that in his opinion the People's Party would never fuse or co-operate with 4 1 T"k 1 rr me Aseuiucrauo macnine. lie says that the People's Party will not co operate with those who support the nominee of the Democratic party for President, but that the People's Party is ready to receive into its ranks, or to co-operate with, those who repudiate the gold and monop oly policy of the party of "perfidy and dishonor." On the other hand the Charlotte Observer says that it will not sup port anyone who does not support the nominee of the national Demo cratic convention for President, no matter who the party nominates (even if it is Tt amoh) and no matter what the plaUvrui is. Therefore me ut-strver need not give itself 1 1 "V any concern about there being any iusion between the People's Party and those who agree with and sup port tue policy of the Observer. The Observer can, on the other hand, consistently fuse with goldbug republicans like Eaves, Leak. Cowles, Settle & Co , either under the name of the Democratic or Re publican machines. This would be fusion tor principle, if goldbugs can be said to have any principles. Tho editor of the Charlotte Ob server once fought goldbugs, but nice Carlisle, Sherman, Hoke Smith. McKinley & Co., he has deserted his principles and gone over to the enemy that he and they once fought Ths Caucasian has always stood and now stands for the fundamental principles of good government for which tip patriotic founders of our government steod. These principles are greater than any party. We will repudiate any party that deserts these principles and sells out to the monopolists and British goldbugs. e win join any party that stands for these principles and fUrhts mo nopolies, goldbugs and traitors. The Caucasiak is in the People's arty to-day because it believes in lie principles of Jefferson, Jackson and Lincoln and because it refused to forswear and prore false to these principles and follow a Benedict Arnold party. the rtsurr cssotcx or t COLO TSCST. Every man who has been men tioned as a Republican eaadidatef or President is a goldbug. Allison , Reed. McKinley, Morton, and the other persons named in this connec tion are all the same kind of gold bugs that John Sherman is. Sher man claims to be a "true bimetal list" and hie definition of bimetal lism is gold buggery of the worst and moat dangerous kind. The Presi dential candidates also claim to be "true bimetallism;" but adopt John Sherman's definition as their plat form. Every one of these men are perfectly satisfactory to the gold combine, but it seems that they have selected McKinley as their moat available candidate. They do not claim that he would or could serve the Rothschilds or sbylocks any better than the others, but they think that with McKinley as a candidate they could, to some ex tent, keep the money question in the background and get the people to tariff.
