Concerning the temporary trouble
tbe Caucasian Lad last wt-ek, a few
BUgottions may b m order Lire.
There will be no effort to trlucidate
or elaborate in detail, but there are
one or two fads which ought to be
stated and which ought to impress
our friends. In truth, what i3 here
presented mit have thiir consider
ation if they care to set; tne paper
prope rly supported and sustained.
All during the past two year.-s the
most general and conspicious utter
ance and remark among tho people
has been "hard timos." Hundreds
upon hundredH of letters came to
this ofiiee abking for opicK of the
Caucasian, while tho writers stated
that they would like to become reg
ular readers of the paper, but did
not feel able to pay for it. In Au
gust of 181K5, we made a proposition
to send the Caucasian three months
for J,ten cents. It was anticipated
that two or threo thousand people
would take advantage of this offer,
and wo thought we could Ktand the
loss that would thu3 be involved.
Hut more than seventeen thous
and people took up that proposition
Now, ten cents will juat about pay
one-half of the expense of bending
out the Caucasian for three months.
There was a loss of nearly ten cents
on each cf these subscribers, and
the proposition, instead of being
profitable, just eat into the fund of
the Caucasian to tho extent of about
We thought wo had learned a les
son at this point, and resolved not to
be caught at fcuch a bad bargain
again. Iiut wo forgot it
in the excitement of the
last campaign, and another proposi
lion was made to penU tne paper
during the campaign for ten cents.
About six thousand people swooped
down on that proposition, and nearly
$500.00 more of tho capital stock
went to meet tLe r xpenso thus in
uentleraen, fellow citizens r.nd
brethren! We are done with these
kind of projects. It is timo to stop
them when tho result is a levy by
the sheriff. The Caucasian is the
central representative of about two
hundred thousand voters under the
co-operation ilan. If there are
not enough men to support the pa
"fter in this vast army of voters, then
th$ inevitable conclusion is that the
paper will not be wanted, and it will
have to stop.
The price hereafter will bo $1.00
for one year; 00 cents for six months;
33 cents for three months. This
statement settles the future subscrip
tion price for "off" years, "on"
years and all sorts of years.
We marked off this list on Novem
ber 7th the names of six thousand
subscribers whose timo had expired.
These names ought to be replaced
at once by regular somi-annual, or
annual subscribers. Their support
and sympathy is needed now and
needed very much. If the sheriff is
allowed to swoop down ou this office
again, the chances are that he will
swallowj.he entire outfit, and that
there will be nothing left of it. We
have done what wo could. If you
will do HALF of what YOU can do, all
will be well.

Til K IhSL'E AH DEAD AS THE PARTY.
A few days after the election it was
pretty generally suggested that the
democrat would make another fight
in the next election, and that their is
fiue would be the "color line." Well,
we shall not be surprised to see tbis
attempted. That isaue is dead, of
course a dead as Judas Iscariot; but
then the Democratic party is about
dead and nothing better can now be
expected from that source.
Ii nt let us suppose that there is some
life in that party, and that it attempts
to bring that bogy old issue forward
What could they do with it? It is
stated that the census of!890 gives tbe
number of white men of voting age in
this State at -J.'J.'i.OOO. There has been
some increase since IS'jO, and it will be
a very conservative statement to say
that there are now as many as 245,000
white voters in the State.
The Democrats did all they could to
draw the color jine in the campaign
just closed, and if it be admitted that
every man who voted for Cyrus B.
Watson, the Democratic nominee for
Governor, was a white man, it will be
seen that Watson received but little

votes, he received, in round numbers
about 130,000. This makes it appear
that there are ll',00tt,white voterB in
-North Carolina who will either vote
against the Democrats or who will not
vote for them.
Now is'nt the above a beautiful ba
sis for the Demys to try to revive the
old bugaboo cry of "nigger" upon!!
Actually there are about as many
white voters against the Democratic
party as there are in sympathy
with it, and yet these Dems
announce that they will try to
bring back among a progressive and
honest people the ridiculous old "scare
crew" of a generation ago, and make
it work. Verily, it seems that the
poor old Democratic party is on its

ne jj-amocrats nave made some
great efforts to trade off the State's
interest during the past two years,
and in some cases have been success
ful or at least thev think thev have.
Last year tho Democratic State
administration leased the North
arouna raiiroaa ior ninety nine
years at a price that was ridiculous
ly and scandalously low as compared
with the true rental worth of that
property. If it can bo arranged so
that the inside of this deal can be
shown up, there will be something
for the people to wonder at.
There has recently been a deal by
which many thousands of acres of
the State lands in Dare county have
been eold to somebody. This has
been conducted with strange quiet,
and the man who thinks that there
is not some pretty scheming in this
matter is very much behind the pro
And now this same Democratic
administration is making a strenuous
effort to put the Atlantic and North
Carolina railroad, which is practi
cally owned by the State, into the
hands of some syndicate. Every
thing had been arranged to make
this deal as quietly and secretly as
the other railroad deal was made
bat the representatives of the people
got some knowledge of the affair
and the matter has been stopped
temporarily at least, by a restrain
ing order from Judge Robinson.
Great Scott! But haven't these
Dems gone into the secret deal and
looting business pretty strongly. It
seoms that their policy is to take ev
erything the State has and turn it
over to some trust or syndicate with
out letting the public or people know
anything about it. If in the course of
the next two years the people do no
congratulato themselves on having
wiped out the Dam. gang that has
been infesting the State officts, we
will pay the bet.
SOME TAIL, MMIIEKS AGAINST THE
There are sometimes ways of pre
senung ugures which will obscure
what tbey really mean if they are not
closely examined. You will never see
a Democratic paper acknowledge that
tbe head of tbe Democratic ticket was
oeacen Dy a majority of 71,000, but
sucu is tne stubborn fact.
Let's see. To begio with there was
a total of 331,000 votes cast in the
OfcA -r . , -
otam ior x'resiaential electors. Of
this number of votes Cyrus IB. Wat
son, the head of the Democratic ticket,
received 130,000 in round numbers
There were, therefore, 201,000 votes
cast which be did not receive
ana ,me aiuerence between the
130,000 which he did receive .and the
201,000 which he did not receive is the
majority of votes by which the head
of tbe Democratic ticket was repudi
ated io North Carolina. That differ
ence Is 71,000.
It is true that all this majority may
not have gone to any one man nor to
any several men, but is also tree that
t was against the head of tbe Demo
cratic ticket, and we can make notb-
og less of it than a defeat of tbe Dem
ocratic ticket by TIXWJwajojutt.
LET EACH CANDIDATE MAKE THE
PLEDGE THAT VAKCE MADE.
We understand that certain gold
men continue to claim tn&t tney
have some Populist members of the
egislature pledged to vote for a
'sound money" man for the United
States Senate. The Caucasian
wants to go on record again as say
ing that we do not believe there is
any foundation for any such absurd
claim. In fact we denounce it as
In the legislature of 1891 the Al
iancemen would not even vote for
Zeb Vance for re-election to the
Senate till they pledged him on more
than one important question. No
body doubted that Senator Vance
was squarely for the free coinage ef
silver, but he was pledged on the
banking monopoly and for an in
come tax. If there is any doubt
about where any candidate stands
let him be required to make a pledge
like Zeb Vance made.
THOS. E. WATSON'S LETTER.
Hon. Tbos. E. Watson, vice-Presi
dential nominee of tbe Peoples Party,
wrote his letter of acceptance and
mailed it to National Chairman Butler.
Tbe letter was delayed for some time.
When Chairman Butler received it, be
wrote to Mr. Watson offering some
suggestions. This correspondence
prevented tbe publication of Mr. Wat
son's letter. Since the campaign, bow
ever, Mr. Watson has published his let
ter in his paper. It makes about five
columns. We present Chairman But
ler's letter this week, to which we ask
attention, so that it may be well re
membered;in connection with Mr. Wat
son's letter, which we will publish
Note On account of the consolida
tion of tbe two issues Chairman But
ler's letter in reply to Mr. Watson's
letter is also crowded out of this issue,
and both will appear in our next issue.
THE CAUCASIAN'S EMBARRASSMENT.
There was no paper published last
week owing to some financial diffi
culties. These now have been ar
ranged for and the issues of Nov.
10 th and Nor. 2Cth have been con
solidated and the missing issue will
be made good to all subscribers.
We notice that The Caucasian's
temporary trouble Las been given
wide publication through the Demo
cratic press, but we desire to add our
version, as we failed to note it
in any paper save the Raleigh Press-
Visitor, which paper kindly tender
ed us th use of us columns &nd
from wh::h we 1: k.j the following
facts as they were:
Editor of Pkess-Visitor: Will you kind
ly allow me space in your paper to correct
a statement or two that appeared in this
morning's News and Observer in reference
to The Caucasian's financial embarrass
ment. First, it is reported that Mr. Holding.
owner of the Raleigh Paper Company has
made every effort to collect amount due,
but had been continually put off with prom
ises until "forbearance ceased to be a vir
tue." In reply to this I bee to state that to
y personal knowledge Mr. Holding re
ived October 5th. S50: and November 11th.
$75,00, with the assurance that more would
be paid in a week or two, and that the en
tire amount would be settled as soon as pos-
Second, the News and Observer says:
"That it is learned from another source that
some of the printers have three months
wages due them." This is also grossly
wrong, it is true The Caucasian has been
in arrears, but never more than three
weeks at any time, and the person who
stated otherwise, if correctly reported,
made a false statement.
Permit me to say further that upon the
surface of the whole matter, to me, indi-
behind the move of Mr. Holding which I
deduct from the following: On Tuesday
morning Mr. Holding desired to sell The
Caucasian 79 reams of paper. The quality
and packing of the paper was not up to the
standard desired ana so I told Mr. Holding
and that The Caucasian did not care to
agree to take said lot. Mr. Holding admit
ted that the packing of the paper was not
what he ordered, but since it had
been put up in this way, ask d
me to take it at a discount or
one quarter cent less per pound, which
we refused to accept, stating that we could
not use the paper at any price. This oc
curred at 11 o ciocK Tuesday; at 2 o'clock
be secured judgment on amount due and
placed the matter in the sheriffs hands.
The Caucasian has been purchasing pa
per from the Raleigh Paner Comnnv tnr
the past fifteen months, which amounts to
aooui ou.uw pounds, or 1,448 reams, mak
ing the weekly average number of Caucas
ians published about ll,00O.Deducting from
this the Clinton edition of the ru
which is 1.000, leaving the Raleigh edition
10,000 as the weekly average for the past fif
teen months, for which Mr. Holding has
received a good revenue during that period.
Since last August the Caucasian has
promptly paid cash for all paper purchased
from Mr. Holding and faithfully endeav
ored to pay off the debt of previous deliv
ery, and but for the difficulty in making
our collections, would have settled in full
tne amount due.
One more word and I am done. The po
litical slurs that the News and Observer en
deavors to neap upon the Caucasian in this
connection are uncalled for and do not re
flect a Bentiment of conrteav In i
ism. The Caucasian's embarrassment could
have been published as a matter of newr.
If the tone and politics of the Caucasian are
at variance with the News and Observer
that does not justify it to exhault at its
misfortune, a thing liable to happen to any
newspaper. The resources of the Caucasian
Publishing Company are ample to meet all
and every debt. Its friends will stand by it
and see to it that it will BtiH. continue pub
lication and keep the ews and Observer on

tne above, but wish to say that
through friends arrangements have
been made whereby Thb Caucasian

cially desire to call upon all friends

do this by securing at least one new

Elliott, N. C, Nov. 14, 189C.
Hon. J. C. Pritchard, Marshall, X. C.
Dear Sir : Yours of Nov. 8th, askicg
whether or not I favored your re
election to the Senate, received. Who
shall be Senator is a matter to be de
cided by a majority of tbe members of
tbe next legislature, but if I were a
member of that body I would not vote
for any man for Senator who favored
tbe gold standard or whoee position
on tbe financial question (so vital to
the welfare of our people) was uncer
tain or equivocal.
When you were elected to the Senate
two years ago you were as outspoken
and as strong for the free and unlim
ited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16
to 1 as I or anyone else. You con
demned tbe gold standard as one of
tbe greatest curses to our people and
to our country, you condemned Cleve
land's financial policy and especially
Carlisle's policy in redeeming Treas
ury notes in gold alone. But to-day
Senator John Sherman, tbi arch leader
of the British gold conspiracy, says
mv meir uope 01 capturing tne
next U. S. Senate for the sold stand
ard depends upon getting a Senator of
bucir uwu way 01 imnKinp irom DOtn
Kentucky and North Carolina. It is
understood that thev want to elect
Carlisle from Kentucky and to elect
you irom Aortn Carolina. Therefore
1 take it that you are no longer for the
free and unlimited coinage of silver at
the ratio of 16 to 1, but if you are,
then Sherman and Mark Hanna must
be deceived as to your position.
Besides if you have been correctly
reported by the newspapers, you have
in soma of your speeches admitted
that you have radically changed your
views on the financial question, which
question is at all times the most im
portant and vital one in this or any
other government and which ia
cially so at this time in the United
states. Again, yon had published in
the Winston Republican a few months
ago a statement of your great change
on the money question. That article
which tbe editor said he was author
ized to publish and which you have
never corrected, stated that you would
vote for free coinage until March 4th
next because you were nledrad tn dn
so, but that after then you would be a
"sound money man."
inus itsefcUiS clear that tod tiava
decided to desert the people in their
great struggle against the money
power and have gone over to the side
of the money changers who bleed and
oppress the people.
mere is no longer anv half-war nr
straddling ground in this contest.
js-very man in Congress will haye to
vote for the free coinage of silver and
more full legal tender money for the
people or he will vote with the hank
ers, bondholders, speculators and gold
gamblers who live and grow rich by
making money dearer and scarcer. If
tms is your position then no memhw
of the legislature, who is not himself a
goldbug, can vote to send you to the
Senate. You certainly cannot expect
the vote of any Populist, neither can
you expect tne vote 01 any silver Re
publican, for when your State conven
tion passed a resolution approving
your course, you had not given public
you nau cnangea your
Every man has a risrht to chanro
his views on the money question or
any other question whenever he has
reasons sufficient for doing so, but he
" uu "iut du vuuipiain 11 tne people
of his State refuse to change their
views because he changes his.
Having radically changed your posi
tion on the most vital issue before the
country to-day and now holding new
views in conformity with those of
Sherman and Mark Hanna. you would
not represent tne sentiments and in
terests of the people of North Carolina
in the United States Senate any more
than did Senator Ransom after he
changed his views on the money ques
tion to conform with the views of
uieveiana ana Carlisle.
One vote may determine the position
of the next United States Senate on
the money question. In fact if von
are elected or any man holding the
new auu luicigu views you nave
adopted it will almost surely rive the
bankers, bondholders and gold trusts
one majority in that body, and com
plete control of every branch of the
government, and this is the reason
why that class of men are now showing
so much interest and anxiety about
It is absolutely necessary for the
peopie to noiu tne u nitea States Sen
ate in order to check tbe further
scnemes 01 tne monopolists and srold
contractionists. To do this it is nec
essary for North Carolina to send a
iree coinage and anti-monopoly man
to tne senate. Therefore I favor the
election of a man who holds the same
views on the financial question that
you neia oeiore you changed.

Another Populist Not Pledged.
For The Caucasian.!
In the Charlotte Observer of the 15th
inst, I see that Hiram L. Grant says
"all Populists for whom we voted
(meaning candidates for the Legisla
ture) promised to vote for Pritchard."
He has fallen into error, at least as
far as Mecklenburg is concerned We
are pledged to no man, but are free to
vote as we think best. The two R
publicans, Clanton and Williamson
were not pledged, but are free to vote
for whom they please. There was a
tacit understanding that we were all
to support the county government and
election laws, and see that they should
be preserved. Nothing beyond this
was even alluded to. As to whom we
