An analysis of these documents will. how that there in ood rtnson for the confusion that esiats iix to Senator Pritchard'B po sition on the 'GCfition of stiver and flnanco. In th; n solution signed by biui nelf and fix teen other Republican Senators, he declares that the peo ple of the raited Mates can be res cued from impending danger howl HYT1IK ONLY METHOD POSSI UliK, WHICH IS TDK TREK AND I'NIilMITED COINAGE OF SIL VER AT THE RATIO OF 1G TO 1, IlY THE INDEPELDENT ACTION OF THE I'NITED STATES. In the parallel letter, of Febru ary I.'ttb, 00', ho says: The Rei-ui;- LH'AN I'AKTV does not kavor the KRER COlNAtiE OF SILVER AS AN IN IE''EXDENT, HINiLE ANf) SEPARATE KINANClAli I'OMCV." Now iu one instance the Senator declares for one thing, but,, in an tb r he fays his party does not fa vor it. Aid it must be noted that he adhtus to his party, for he says he has ax.ahimxo kaitii in its honemty. Now, if tbo Republican imrty dots not favor free silver by independent action, and Senator Priteharil has an Ai.iDiNd I'aith in the boutsty of the Republican party, it is char that Senator Pritcbard (itnnot f&vcr frco silver by inde pendent action without compromis ing bis own bone.ty. . In the struct from tbo editorial in tbo Winston Republican, Senator 1'ritchard is reported as standing for re-election on the financial plank adopted by the Republicans at St. Louis. This was not denied by Sen ator Pntchard or any of bis friends during the campaign) but after the campaign closed and the eleetion retains showed that the Republican linancial plank had been repudiated by n large majority of the people of this State, why then there come3 on more and different talk. In the letter wiitten to Col. Skinner on December 10th, Senator Pritchard says he will vot- for free silver in almost any shape. Let us brielly anal ze the letter to Col. Skinner. Senator Pritch ard says ha is a staunch friend of tCO PRACTICAL FINANCIAL REFORMS contemplated by the Populist move ment. Well, coming from Senator Pritchard this means nothing; for the Republican party to which he gives allegiance, has for four years past denounced every reform con templated by the Populists as IM PRACTICAL! Do you see A train he says he will vote for free silvt r by independent action ,1G to I, after having said that his party did not favor such action and that be had an abiding faith in his party. Nowhere docs Senator Pritchard lay that he will champion or favor the introduction of a silver bill, or that be will see that one is intro- uuceu. xne locerenceis tnat 11 it comes it be will vote for it. Now let it be remembered that if Mr. Pritchard is returned to the Senate, be will not give his vote for an independent silver bill, for he will help the administration to so organize the Senate as to see that such a measuro will never come up Next, he says he will not vote for i as an amendment or "rider" to any protective tariff or other remidial legislation. Now, Mr. Pritchard seems to reserve to himself the right to say what rernidia legislation i? and be would thus have the right to declare that any "sort of bill" looked to remedial legislation, and woald vote against silver as an amendment any such "sort of bill." So it seems to us that a four horse wagon could be driven all through Mr. Pritch ard's letter, and it further seems us that it was written with a view t" leaving a number of holes through which the writer could, walk out with an assumed feeling that he had violated no pledge or promise. But after bis hedging, straddling, dodging, and flopping record of the past year, during which period he has changed his position three times on the most important question be fore the American people, we wish to say in all candor and earnestness that the Peoples Party could not af ford to send Mr. Pritchard back to tbo Senate even though be were to make pledges of the most unquali fied and unlimited kind. Bot!-je there i a "but" in the W are not pvinf away advice, bat we call the atten tion of the Tritmae to oae thing which we iappo will not oeear . . 1 A L again, it rcmaras mai mere arv some r a mors that two or three Re publican will bolt the party eaueu on the Senatorial question. Toes it ay that tbee men are too "hon orable" to do such a thing; too "hon est" to thick of ach an actios, &e., and by this kind of talk inti mates that a Republican who woald bolt the party caueu i a scamp aod ra.eal and a traitor and a little of erything else. And then the Tribune keeps right on talking. And it says that some Popalitts have bolted their party caucus, and tmna. ims action is a 'strike for freedom," and that the bolters are "hone.f1 and "courage ous" men and big gentlemen and all sorts of good things else. And, though the Tribune gentle men may think they know all about it, they have one thing to learn; and that is not to say "two different things of the same kind" in the same issue. It must learn th&t a Populist who will bolt his party caucus is just as much of and as many sorts of things as a Republican is who will bolt his party caucus, and viee versa. Bat yes, another "but:" Wei come to the Tribune, and many hap py days for it.

The newly elected State officers were sworn in by Chief Justice Fair cloth on Tuesday, Jannary 12th 1897, in the Hall of the House of Representatives, and in the presence of as many people as the spacious chamber would hold. And the State went entirely from the control of the Democratic party for the first time in twenty years. Immediately after the oath of of fice had been administered, Gover nor Russell delivered his inaugural address. We have not space to pre sent it to our readers this week. It must be said here, however, that the address the most powetful and strongest political deliverance that has been made in this State for twenty years, and as a State paper, it will equal in advice and force any thing that has ever appeared in the State records.

On December 10th, Senator Pritchard Skinner published above. PROGRESSIVE FARMER ON THE SEN ATORSHIP. Some Loud Taps. Strong; Points and Plain Talk on the Situation. We are not willing to believe that all of the nineteen so-called "bolters" will vote for Pritchard. But suppose they do. They will only weaken the Populist party nineteen votes; they. can carry notmng with tbem but tbe contempt of all honest people. The addition to the Republican party will be about equal to the addition to the British army when Benedict Arnold deserted tbe cause of American Inde pendence. For every legislative trai tor developed in this fight, if there be traitors, the Peoples Party will get a thousand good citizens, all with more influence and ability than those wbo desert tbeir- principles for Mark Ban na's money or for Republican patron ageone and the same for the men who go through this fight untainted will be worthy of confidence. If the Republican leaders alienate ibe sympathy of Populists, as tbey will do if they buy tbe election of Pritch ard, he can't be elected any other way, then the party will become a greater stench in the nostrils of honest people than the Cleveland Democracy, and it will be beaten in the State. The in famous bargaining is known and if the plans are carried out tbe peni tentiary doors ought to be thrown wide open and all concerned driven in like sheep. a--., . . Most of the nineteen mentioned as bolters are Pritchard sympathizers, some of them corruptly, and others honestly, believing they are under ob ligations to keep pledges, which, how ever, are now void. As soon as we can find ont Pritcbard sympathizers for pie only, we will publish a black list of the names and keep them before tbe people of the State so tbey can be spotted hereafter. j j The people of North Carolina are tired of treachery and foolishness.
