SOME MORE PLAIN FACTS From & Man Who Has Affiliated With Democrats, Bat Now Ac knowledges no Allegiance. A DEMOCRATIC RECORD Nhowlag llf lit piMithem Wine Umii lh Tall .if lli Northern HImj W hat III Party Has Hrn lrltn t lo In L'onaeonenre f Ihli t ' Pointed Jutlntia. For Tli Caininimi.l I'ocoHiy, N. C, May -."- A series of communication have recently ap peared in the Columbia N;ws, tbe object of which wan to i1i'h;um the tioiitical situation, both Hfato aud National, from the standpoint of a sincere friend of flaanciil reform, who has heretofore r.cted with tho Democratic party, ami U till an xious to xee white supremacy unl an economical administration of the rotate government maintained m North Carolina, but. at the present acknowledges no allegiance to any political party. In the discussion it has boon n.s xumed that a large majority of the votern of the I'nited States favor the free coinage of silver, and that in order to elect a free silver President, all that is necessary is to unite the t ree silver vote on the same candi date. The burning question of tho hour is how this can bo done. The real object or the discussion has been to lind, if possible, an answer to that question. Incidentally, the question of the defeat of the Repub lican party and the maintenance of white supremacy in the State of North Carolina has been discussed also. From time to time the editor of the News has attempted to reply to some of the statements and argu ments of his correspondent, lie has displayed considerable ingenui ty in attacking the less carefully guarded points, and, considering how bad a cause he was attempting to defend, has held up his end pret ty well. In fact, candor compels me to admit that he has made much bet ter use of the material at his com mand than his correspondent. But he has grown weary of "giving so much space to a display of Populist and Republican thunder," and "re spectfully declines to bo so generous in the future' That is all right. lie has a riirht to contrel his own columns. But the purpose of this communi cation ia to call the attention of his readers to the fact that the last coin munication of the series, was not Cnblished entire, as it was written, ut was fiadly mutilated and the best part of it left out. I am not com? plaining of this at all, but I have de .. termined, that, if possible, the omit ted portion shall reach some, at least, of the readers of the News. For the convenience of those read era I will indicate the connection be tween the omitted and the published portions of the communicatio i Speaking of the popular agitation of the silver question and following the allusion to tho farmers Alli ance I wrote : "The popular agitation of the sub ject, began by the Farmers' Alliance, was continued by the Peoples Party, the American Bimetallic League, the Silver Union and other similar organizations, Harvey's buok.s per haps accomplishing more in the ed ucation of public sentiment than any other factor. But the Democratic party, as an organization, has nevor claimed free coinage as one of its cardinal principles, or done anything to create or strengthen public senti ment in its favor. The North Caro lina State Democratic convention in 1S!)0 incorporated free coinage, with other demands of the Alliance in its platform: but this was the result of the agitation of the subject by the Alliance; and the Democratic party, even of tho State, as an organiz i tion, deserves no credit for it." Immediately following what is said of the Chicago convention and platform, read as follows : "A recent Washington dispatch quotes a Democratic member of Con gress from Texas as saying that the sdver Democrats in the South were fighting to save the Southern Statos to the Democratic party, rather than with any hope of winning in the na tional election. This; of course, is what we all knew before, but I am a little surprised to find a Democratic leader publicly admitting it. And here I pause to inquire what consid eration of interest or duty, principle or expediency, requires the Demo crats of North Carolina or any other Southern State to continue any longer ia athliation with the (so- called) national Democratic party. J. he rear or negro aommation was the whip that kept us to track for twenty odd years, while we played tail to New lork's kite and patient ly submitted to the dictation of the Northern wing of the party in every thing pertaining to party policy When we ventured to intimate that inasmuch as we furnished the votes we ought to have some voice in de termining the party policy, we were coolly and contemptuously told (not in those words exactly, but virtually) to choose between the rule of the Northern Democrat and that of the negro. It was this threat that prevented a House of Represen tauves wun na Democratic maior lty from passing a free coinage bill It was this that prevented a Demo cratic Congress from repealing the law of lolo, under which tbe inter est-bearing debt of the government has been increased more than 2C2 millions of dollars. It was this that prevented the Southern members from making any determined effort to compel the redemption of the party's pledge to repeal the ten per vent, tax on State banks. It was for this that, after a twenty years struggle for tariff reform, we sub mitted to be cheated of the fruits o victory and accept, in lieu thereof a measure, which, through the com bined wisdom of the manufacturers the money-kings, tbe party leaders and the devil, furnishes a perfect so lution of a very difficult problem to-wit : to increase the profits of the lowering the deficiency in netfiwitate an :: a debt, as a manufacturers rhi!e duties and creating a the revenue, o a? to increase of the bon means of perpetuating the National Uanking system. All this acd much more which time and xjpa- h fail me to recount, we have submitted to, and what hive w received in re turn! The repeal cf the Federal election 1 iw- trio only one of all its promises, that the rational Demo cratic party has ever attempted, IX oooii faith, to redeem. In bo far as the inaintenaui f white suprem acy in tlm South i concerned, I don't m e how the national Demo cratic pnrty can help us nny." The Texas man referred to above ii quoted h Haying tliHt the control of tho national convention by the gold iii?n nicanx Democratic defeat in nt bast a portion of the Southern States, and he virtually adriiitn that the nomination of a nilver m:tn for i'renident mean in the elec toral college. Now Jet me ask, how are we going to promote tne main tenance of white supremacy in the South by indirectly ?:ding in the election of a go.dfjn,? Kernbuviau Piesident and Congress? I can't for my life see. Can you ?" Ihe artici-' as written concludes as follows : "By the way tho tide has turned again ami tho indications now are that tho gold men will have things their own way at Chicago. If they do I don't see any reasjn why any Democrat who favors fre coinage should refuse to vote the Populist electoral ticket. Do you? If you do please tell me what it is. But don't attempt to justify a bolt by claiming that free coinage is, or ever has been, one of the cardinal princi ples of the Democratic party. The bolt is all right, but you must find some other argument to sustain it." Melton Campuell. POLlTICAl PGf-POURRI. Condensed Meon Of What People Are Sa, g And What Parties At i Doing.

No tariff word was spokes The old 30 year bsuewasa thing of the past, and "free silver" was the tune of the convention strung on the high est keynote. We stood looking on in amazement, to think how short a time had passed since some of those very fellows were avowed "aound money men" whose voice now rang out in thunder tones for FRZK sil ver. Are they really honest? And is it a fact that they hare changed their views so instantly or have they realized the fact that the great masses of the people are demand ing a change: and to keep in the lead they have just pretended to lay aside their feelings in the mat ter for the present and still LEAD ON, and when the time comes to act WITH PROFIT, they will do aa th great leaders of the Democratic party did at the great silver con vention called by the great Democratic party of the State of North Carolina! The record of that convention is known to all. We will watch and see.

CLARION NOTES. Calling All to Art for Their Country's In terest Kegardleiis of Party. For The Caucasian. Kadar, N. C, May 28, '90. See ing the momentous evils that threat en the destruction of liberty's temple, every son of liberty and lover of freedom should be moved above party lines to think well and act wisely in casting their votes in the ides of November next. We as Populists cannot nor will support a man who bas not been tried and found true to the leading issues of the present crisis, to-wit: Free and unlimited coinage of silver at 10 to 1, an income tax, the present system of banking abolished, and the government control of its finauces, no more bonds in time of peace, and if needs be give the peo ple fiat money to supply the present demands and relieve tho burdens that now bring wails of distress from every part of the republic. We cannot nor will we support the Republican party because they openly avow their opposition to these principles and persist iu pursuing a course that will forever make the 1 masses slaves for the few. We cannot nor will we support the Democratic nomineo from the fact that they have been advocating in platform, and every politician from the least to the present Presi dent, the free coinage of silver, op posed to banks, iVc, and as per rec ord we see it all has been hypocrisy, all for sake of party and not prin ciple. Yet they tell us that Cleve land and his imp3 have proven trai tors to the party. I think to-day Cleveland shines in the galaxy far above all his imps for honesty and self aggrandizement from the f act!of his setting forth his position in the There is a strong probability that the Democratic State convention will take a recess when it meets here June '2th. to some date after the Demo cratic National convention is held in Chicago. It is also equally as probable that a State ticket will not be named June 25th, but at some later period after the meeting of the National convention. For several weeks a number of well- known Democrats have advocated the idea of waiting for the National con vention to act. Mr. Chambers Smith, who is in touch with the silver advocates in the various sections of the State, stated to today that he had no doubt but that the con vention would take a recess without nominating a State ticket when it meets here June -2:th. Mr. Smith says that he has information from various sections of the State, which justifies the statement. Kaleigh, Press-Visitor The three great San Francisco dailies are decidedly complimentary in their editorial remarks upon the re cent Populist state convention. The Chronicle (rep.; says : "Taken all to gether what has been done at Sacra mento, well deserves the commenda tion of good citizens -whether they are Populists or not." The Examiner (dem.) rises to remari : "The Popu lists have put enough good timber in to their platform to fit out two or three parties." The Call (rep.) says : "The course taken by the Sacramento con vention may win no cllicers for the Populists in this campaign but it is sure to win them converts." egates to free silver, and no man could be elected delegate until he first stood up before the convention and declared his intention to sup port none others for office but true and tried silver men, our confi dence increased; aud we began to feel like saying, hurrah for free sil ver Democrats of Craven county But when the names of the delegates appointed were announced there were on the list the names of those who are avowed goldbugs, and who have made no profession of a change in their views, and other names were read as delegates who were not pres ent to pledge themselves. What does all this mean! Are they acting in good faith! or are they still at the old game of deceiving the people! When political parties or the lead ers of political parties pledge them selves time and again to do a thing, and then when the time comes to act and they have the power to car ry their pledges out and fail in every instance to do it, what grounds have we for believing they will carry out new pledges! We are speaking of the leaders; we do not censure the masses, because they would have it different if they could, but so long as they follow those who have so many times deceived them, what hoDe have thev to continue in the same old way! G. L. Hardison all the time. If we do not get what we want we shall bolt and that is all there Rilvflr miAstioTi nrerinno tr w m?. is to it" The Senator says the next nation, and M. W. Ransom, J. G Carlisle, B. H. Bunn and on down to the cross-roads politician. Oh! how blatant for silver, but when they ad a chance they bowed the knee to King Grover to kill silver and they llled the party, save a smell of brimstone and Wall street. It might be asked, who will vou support! In response I would say throw party lines down and let 11 the forces, regardless of party. Senator Teller is now out of the lie publican party beyond recall. This is his latest utterance, in the New York Commercial Advertiser: "McKinley will not gain ten votes among the free silver people by the buncombe on bi metalism. We will not let the same yellow dog bite us twice. We shall in sist lor the white metal first, last and election will be thrown into the Uouse. Hon. Stephen P. Shephard, of Ken tucky, author of a very able work on the silver question, and a leader in the Democratic free silver circles of Louisville, has resigned from the exe cutive committee of the Democratic Bimetallie League and writes the chairman as follows : "Hereafter my work wiU be devoted to the. cause of the Populist or People's party."

Havana, Cuba. June 3. General Fitzhugh Lee, recently appointed Consul-General to Havana, arrived this morning by the steamer Mas cotte of the Ward Line. Tho Gene ral was met by a gaily decorated tug, upon which were ex-Consul-General Williams, Mr. Sprin ger, Dr. iiurgess ana &enor .aldo, represent ing Captain-General Weyler; also the agent of the Ward Lin a. The party boarded the Mascotte and ex tended a cordial welcome to General Lee. General Bradley Tyler Johnson and a number of other Americans, and a large crowd of people awaited General Lee ashore. On tho wharf he was received most respectfully. There was no demonstration. A special from New York to Richmond Star of yesterday, says Senator Marion Butler, of North Carolina, who come over from Wash ington with other Congressmen on Friday and put up at the Waldorf, ex plained the situation in regard to silver yesterday. "The gold men don't want to control the Chicago conven tion'' said Senator Butler. "They turns me easiest way to give silver a black eye, is to have the silver men control. The silver men will run the convention with the help and conni vance of the gold men, and the gold men will keep possession of the party machinery. If it should be a square fight to a finish the silver men would win and the gold men would bolt. I expect a dill'erent situation. The gold men will direct the machinery and put up a candidate who will prevent the sil ver men from uniting. If the silver men do not unite effectually so as to make a victory certain, it will be the fault of the silver Democrats who will be hoodwinked with or witfiout their knowledge, in the Chicago tion." In Memoriam. I am sorely bereaved. One of my old time friends is dead. Many blessing have I shared through the munificence of my departed friend He once delighted in befriending the poor. He was liberal toward the dependent. He was a friend to be proud of. There are many who, like myself, haidly know how to realize that he is dead. And it is strange that one so robust as be was a few years ago should succumb to disease of any kind. But recently he be came infatuated with an insatiable appetite for a single standard prepa ration introduced into this country from Europe. I remonstrated and even threaten ed to sever the amicable relations existing between us. But my re monstrance only served to sour the disposition of the deceased. He be came insolent towards these who objected to his course. His infatua tion grew apace. He indulged more frequently and copiously in his fa vorite remedy. Friends foresaw the result that was coming and ventured to urge a different treatment, and for once there seemed to be a chance of recovery. Many promises of re form were made by the deceased and hope thrilled the bosom of inter ested friends. Again the fatal habit asserted itself with intensified crav ing. Kemonstrance was in vain. Our dear friend, on his deathbed, would insult those who once admired and clung to him. I looked on for lornly but my friend breathed his last, abusing his friends for not giv ing him a chance to redeem himself. Now I turn from the grave of my once beloved friend to seek some one in whom I can confide and to whom I can look for succor in an hour of need. My departed friend was well known to you. His name was familiar in many homes. He was named the Democratic Party. A Friend. THB MEETING WAS A "ROUSICATOR" HE ANALYZES THE REPUBLICAN STATE PLATFORM AND SHOWS ITS SNARES AND TRAPS.

C, June In a previous article I asserted that the platform, put forth by the Republican convention at Kaleigh, was a vague aud unmeaning piece of clap trap, and entirely unworthy of the party; or word3 to that effect. I, myself, am a ilepublican and would not dare to make such an as sertion without the proof at hand, and it is due to all concerned that it should be forthcoming. The platform says: "We favor the use of gold and silver as stand ard money and the restoration of silver to its functions and dignity, as a money metal." That is to say gold is now the only standard money metal, and silver is not. It is ad mitted that silver has lost "its f unc tions and dignity and needs to be restored. When and by whom! Its restoration" is to come immediate ly after an international agreement. as claimed by all the gold standard Republicans; and everybody, ot or dinary intelligence, knows that such agreement is as far off as the bag of gold at the end of the rainbow Mankind have used gold and silver, equally, as standard money for four thousand years, and there never has been an international agreement with, "reference to these two money metals, except what was called the Latin Union, which lasted only a few years, and was an agree ment between France, bpam and Italy to coin equally, and without limit both silver and gold at 151 to 1. -Sothis profession, with refer ence to the "restoration of silver," W.

Wadesboro Plowboy.l South Carolina, Georgia, Arkan sas and we believe other Southern States have announced their inten tion to bolt the national Democratic convention if it does not declare for free silver 16 to 1, and nominate a free silver man. Every Southern State ought to pull loose from that monopoly-serving Northern wing of the party and then join hands with tne West and run this government in the interest of the American peo ple. If they will do that the Popu lists will begin to think they mean what they say. the casual observer, its base hypoc risy and deception; its authors well knowing that a Republican Con gress will never consent to recog nize silver in any capacity except as token money. "We are opposed to the retiring of the greenbacks, the money of the people, the money fayored by Lin coln." Of course the greenbacks are wanted to remain so they can be kept out of the hands of the people to be used by the gold gamblers to deplete the gold reserve, and thus create the necessity to sell gold bonds, to again replenish the gold reserve. Of course Lincoln favored greenback money because it was then used by the people not only to sustain great armies, but to develop the industries of the country, while now it is only used by gold gamblers to rob the people. The sacred memory of an honored statesman and martyred President is conjured up to conceal an unspeakable vil lainy. "We are opposed to the issue of interest bearing bonds in the time of peace, and we condemn the policy ot President Cleveland and Secretary Carlisle in secretly making the sale of government bonds to a foreign syndicate, on such terms as to enable it to realize the enormous profit of $10,000,000, at the expense of the people." Why condemn the issue of coin bonds payable in silver and gold, by the terms of the Jaw, at 10 to 1, when we know that our Republican House of Representatives rushed rantically to the rescue of Grover Cleveland in passing a gold bond bill which would have robbed the people of ten times $10,000,000!

By 10 o'clock in the morn ing the surroundings, in front of the neatly and elegantly decorated stand, were crowded with specta tors men and women, boys and girls, merrily chatting and laughing away the time. At half past 11 o'clock, Mr. Henry appeared on the stage. All eyes fastened upon him. Music was next in order by that elegant band from Mount Holly, trained and accomplished through the leadership of Capt. W. F. Hol land, the champion cornetist. A better country band is not to be found. The speaker was introduced by Mr. W. C. Underwood. One could see clearly that he had already cap tured the confidence of his audience, and as he arose, cheer after cheer rang out in tones expressive of the unmistakable appreciation of his honesty and sincerity of purpose. Mr. Henry's first impression on every one was that he had something to tell them and he intended to do it. He began by referring to the fact that his subject virtually concerned the homes of the people whom he addressed. His subject was, "More Money" or, "The People vs. Plutoc racy," which he discussed in a most logical and masterly manner, back ing up his statements by facts and figures and extracts from the Con gressional Record. He declared that he would not have a great deal to say of Mr. Cleveland now. As 15 out of the 17 different kinds of Dem ocrats (which he defined) were call ing him "Old Grover," and "Old Cleveland," &c, it was really not necessary. If there was one fact more clearly shown in his speech than another, it was the utter im possibility of securing legislation favorable to silver through the old parties.
