Now, since tbmke of th nation

dnt that the gild men were not only
determined to elect 3lcKfnley and
gold House, but that the have made
desperate effort to raptore the Senate
For the last few year the United
State Senate has teen the only pro
tection of the people agaiftft the fur
ther schemes and deiigns .f the gnl
men and monopolist. The ant I-bond

nil ih thin ther have centered thei
force, and spent more money in
mail State like Xortb Dakota whic
has only thrfe electoral votes, tha
tbey have In other States that had two
or three times ai maoy electoral totes.
Their purpone was, of courne, to Ret a
gold Senator from North Dakota. The
same thing in true of South Dakota,
another email State.
The remarkable and tremcndoiu ef
forts which they put forward in In
diana was equally directed toward
capturing the legislature a well as
the electoral vote, for in that State the
term of the free silver Senator expires.
They succeeded and a gold Senator will
be elected there.
Jo Delaware and Kentucky Repub
licans have been instructed from
headquarters to vote in the legisla
tures lor a gold Democrat for Sena
tor In order to get the co operation
of a few gold Democratic, members of
the legislature in thoseState?.
The gold men now claim that they
will have one majority in the next
United States Senate, and if they get
a gold Senator from North Carolina,
which they are claiming, they will
have captured the last bulwark of the
Mark IJanna has already arranged
to keep open Republican headquarters
to New lork until alter the various
legislatures have met and elected Sen
ators. On last Friday night he had a
conference In New York with twenty
five of the lichest men in America
composed of gold Democrats and gold
Republicans, including J. Tier
pont Morgan, the American agent
And representative of the Rothschilds
of England. It is reported that he
laid before them his plans for captur

Ised him all the money he needed for
We do not believe that their scheme
can succeed with the legislature of
North Carolina, unless there are
enough gold Democrats elected to the
legislature to join in with the lie
publicans for this purpose, as they
have arranged to do in Kentucky and
Delaware. Of one thing we feel sure,
and that 1 they cannot control the
vote of a single Populist member of
)he legislature. Rut let every citizen
of North Carolida realize the tremen
dous Ifsue at stake. It is not a ques
tion of bow much money would be
used to capture a gold Senator from
North Carolina. It is a question of
whether any member of the legislature
can be tampered with or not, for the
amount of money that the cold com
bine would use is unlimited.
Let every North Carolinian fully
realize that the action of the North
Carolina legislature determines wheth
er the people will control the United
States Senate or whether the gold
combine shall control it. If the gold
men get the Senate, then they will
have full possession of every branch of
our government. A gold Senator from
North Carolina gives the gold com
bine one majority; a silver Senator
from North Caroliua gives the people
one majority in tlio Senate.
Which shall it be?

We notice that Chairman Ilolton, of
the Kepublican Mate committee, 13
quoted a Haying that he had twelve
Populist members of the legislature
pledged to support a Republican gold
man for the Senate; and when further
questioned a3 to whether or not he
had enough of them to elect a gold
man, he in reported to have paid that
he looked after that and fixed it dur
ing the campaign. We cannot believe
that Chairmnn Iiolton is correctly re
ported, for such a fitatement 13 absurd
not to tay an insult to every ropuiist
member of the legislature. While the
Peoples Party has co-operated with
the Kepublican party in thia cam
paign on State and local matters, yet,
it has not surrendered to the Republi
can party, neither is it mortgaged to
them, and, more than that, we do not
believe that a single member of the
nartv is Dledced or niorteaired to the
While there Las been some diller
ence of opinion among Populists as to
the best methods in this campaign,
yet the Peoples Party has always been
united and solid on one thing; acd
that is that no member of the party
would vote for a gold man for the
United States Senate. This, the Re
publicans have been plainly told, and
have clearly understood all tha time
In fact, the Peoples Party would have
had tli Governor in this co-operation
had c.ir party been willing to support
a Republican gold bug fcr the Senate,
That v as the condition and the only
one which the Republicans would
scree ioVur pert a Populist for Gov
ernor. Rut this proposition of the
Republican committee was promptly
and unanimously declined by the Peo
pies Party State committee. In short
the only reason that the Republicans
have elected their Governor is because
the Populists would not agree to sup
port a Kepublican sroldbugr for the
TH 1" GE.NKKAL ASSEMBLY.
The latest returns from the counties
show that the Populists can organize
the Senate with the help of only one
Republican or Democrat, and that the
Republicans are Ebort ten of a major
ity in the House. The Legislature
will stand :
Senate Populist, 24; Republicans,
17; Democrats, 9.
House Republicans, 51 ; Populists,
31; Democrats, 34; cne" member (Jack
sou county) tied.
The Republicans will lack eighteen
votes to elect a United States Senator,
and the Populists will lack 28. The
Populists have it in their power to
elect one of their members or some
other advocate of the free coinage of
silver if they desire to do so.
