This dan- worm dui aiso ior tne nne record iS in committee meetings that bills which they are making in Congress, are scrutinized and carefully con Mr. Fowler in introducing Senator sidered, section by section, while in Butler referred to some of the fine open session of congrefs other mem work Which he had done during hers, on aar.onnt nf nru nf M)i the brief time he has been in the Senate, and also called attention to the fact that the machine press and the gold monopoly organs in theState had refused to give him credit for the same, or to even make a note of it when they could avoid doing so. But he said that there was one pub lication which showed no discrimi nation and where the people could find the offieial facts, and that was the Congressional Record. This has caused me to use some of my spare time in examining this impartial journal. I find many important things in it that the public has not learned of through the newspapers. I ask for space in your columns to refer to some of these. Congressman Fowler refeired to how every few months Cleveland was issuing a batch of government bonds, when this State sent Marion Butler to Washington as the youngest Sen ator in . the United States Senate, and how, in less than thirty days, he introduced a bill to prohibit the further issuance of bonds, and how for three or four months he pressed it and fought for it vigorously and at last succeeded in passing the bill through the Senate, while no other Senator in either one cf the old parties had ever offered such a bill or attempted to do anything to pre vent these bond issues. Attention was also called to his ef forts and bill to cut off the big mail subsidies that are each year being gerous bill was passed through the House and was supported by many Democrats. When it reached the Senate and went to the Committee on post-offices and post roads, Senator Butler, as a member of that commit tee, fought it and held it in the com mittee and prevented a report, (though a majority of the committee was in favor of it) for over two months. When at last the bill was press business are usually forced to ac cept the report and statements of the members of a given committee with reference to a given bill that they report. While Senator Butler was not on this committee, his ac tion shows that he not onlv carnfnllv reported to tne senate, ne nied a examined the bill when it was re- strong and vigorous minority report, ported, but that he is a better law- ani made a speech which was such a yer or else a better friend to the terrible arraignment of the infamoni people than those who are on the purposes of the bill that he sueceed committee. He promptly offered an ed in defeating it.'" amendment to the bill expressly de- 1 might also call attention to the claring that in the case described in fact that while the tariff has the bill every man should have a has been made leading party trial by jury before being imprisoned "sue of the People's party, for in on a charge of contempt. He pres- ct the People's party was organized sed his amendment so vi coronal to protest against the robbery of the and exposed the dark and hidden people by the gold syndicate and the purposes of the bill with such force combined trusts and monopolies that no one attempted to reply to him and the amendment was adopted. In this connection I wish to call at tention to the fact that a few months afterwards the Democratic party in national convention endorsed this amendment of Senator Butler's in their national platform though they did not give him credit for it but at tempted to claim it as their own in spite of the Record. I wish also to call attention to the fact that he was the first Senator to introduce an amendment to the con stitution providing for an income tax. Others it seems, had been sat isfied to criticise the Supreme court in declaring the income tax law un Soma to Batl Ulvaa lb X uk rv am !atrvlw-U Hraa4 th PaU Btr aa4 Stat What ho 4M Baj-H atdthaMM tMh at Kocfcy MoaatTht ho Ma4 Kloawhtro-Ho ha aot Bofor Booa Bf.UrpraW-. Senator Butler is in the city. Ut stopped over for a day on bis way from Roxboro, where he spoke Tats day. I showed Mr. Batler the statement whieb the Rocky Mount Argonaut says he made in his speech there re cently, viz: "If colored men com mit outrages the Democrats pretend to be terribly shocked in public, bat wnen they get behind a wall tbey e rages are not frequent enough they hire worthless negroes to com mit them.'', "Did yon say thai!" I aked. "No, I made no such statement," "Then what did you sayT" "What I said about the color ques tion at Rocky Mount was precisely the same that I have said in every speech I've made in the State. And at no place could my statements be misunderstood, and I have not been misrepresented in this particular by any other paper at any other place. "On every occasion I have de clared positively and unequivocally in favor of white supremacy and Anglo-saxon rule. I have farther declared that it was best for the black man as well as for the white man that this should be so. I have further declared that every good cit inn, not only of the white race, but also of the colored race should favor it; but that every good citizen fa vored something besides, and that the class of citizens, if there were such, either white or black, who at tempted to stir up race prejudice for the purpose of calling attention from and defeating great economic reforms that concern the welfare of nine-tenths of our population, were the worst and most dangerous ele ment of society. I call attention to how frequently, during the last thirty years, the tariff and the "nig ger" had been nsed as the leading campaign slogans to the exclusion oi tne nnaneiai and monopoly ques tions, and how during this time while the attention of the people were drawn to one side by the tariff and 'nigger the gold syndicate had been allowed to destroy half of our money and corner the rest, how dangerous privileges had been grant which the two old parties permitted and were parties to, while fighting sham battles with each other over the tariff, and while the People's party Congressional caucus passed a resolution to this effect at the begin ning of the extra session and stated that they would not help either one of the old parties to revive it as a leading issue to sidetrack the vital issues, and to this end declared that they wonld refrain from voting on the final ballot, yet no member of Congress was more alert in the peo ple's interest, while that bill was pecking than was Senator Butler. and vote he opposed every unjust 'ndlvid1uals b wlcn lheT, rew and flvftrv discrimination I w h nui wi yui uuub auu pvw voted to railroads as a free gift, also constitutional, but no one had taken fn bill not only that but he of. erf ul monopolies which have resulted Wr LL SAID.

An attempt was made last week to wreck the west bound Chattanooga train on the Southern Railway near Alexander. Some person that the spikes had been the rail elevated so as to cause a wreck, lie signaled an approching freight train which came to a stop and thus saved it from being derailed. John Barnes, who attempted rape on Miss Cora Yarborough at Rocky Mt. some time ago, was tried at Nashville last week and found guilty. He was sentenced by Judge Timberlake to sev en years in tbe penitentiary. Barnes' lawyers at once took an appeal to the Supreme Court and pending its decis ion it was deemed advisable by tbe court to remove Barnes to Wake coun ty jail for safekeeping. He was taken to Raleigh Friday. We were talking with some of tbe last week to reduce the enormous price which the government is paying these rail roads for carrying the mail?, and be sides to stop the payment each year to the railroads for the rent of postal cars twice as much as it would cost to build the cars. No one else had ever called attention to these big steals or attempted to stop them. Attention was also called to Sena tor Butler's amendment to reduce the armor plate for our vessels from $450 to $300 per ton, and also to his discovered I exposition of the fact that the armor drawn ; and I plate trust had been putting oS in ferior and defective armor plate upon the government at this enormous price, and also to his further amend ment providing for the building of a eovernment plant factory if the armor plate trust did not agree to furnish armor at that price. He forced these amendments through Congress, and at this very hour the government is taking action in in accordance therewith. This one amendment means a saving of over one million dollars to the gov ernment on the three battleships now under construction. In addition to these things to which Congressman Fowler referred, any action to remedy tne wrong. Under the rules this amendment went to the Judiciary Committee, the same committee referred to above, and the Record shows that Senator Butler has made frequent efforts to get a report from that com mittee on his amendment but has not yet succeeded. Why have not the Democrats on that committeee forced a report on this amendment? They could get a minority report at least eo as to bring the matter before open Congress. I wish also to call attention to the fact that Senator Ransom spent twenty-four years in the Senate and never, so far as I remember, did or far-A or, r,oDaC . nmW rt im.

The Peo ple's party is in favor of such a fizht, the majority of the voters of the State are in favor cf such a fizht, and they will gladly pull together and win a great victory for all of these great reforms if the agents of monopoly and the false friends of the people do not prevent it.

Free coinage of gild and silver at the present legil ratio; the coin debts of tbe United States payable in either, at tbe option of the government.

Vet the Democratic directors of the pen itentiary leased tbis farm, contract ing to pay twenty three hundred dol lars a year for nice years. After to Stato has cleared the land and im proved it for nine years it may t worth something, but sartly at thA end of that time the owner of tho land should pay the State a round fee for improving it instead of the State paying nearly twenty thousand dollars tor the privilege of sinking nearly that much money.
