The legislature which convened

had been apjointed Chief Shell-Fish

1 897 for a term of four years, sim
ply changing the laws of 1897 rela
ting to the oyster industry of North
Carolina so as to oust him and ap
point seven commissioners in his
stead with like duties to perform
with a salary of $400 each besides an
allowance for an expense account.
Near the close of the oyster , season
of 1899 these commissioners met in
New Berne and in the absence of
Mr. White took charge of the
steamer "Lillie," which was then
tied to a wharf. They manned her
and one or two of these commission
ers proceeded on her to SwanQuar
ter, where they sailed up and down
the bay a few times and appointed
deputies to serve at different points,
It is presumed the deputy inspectors
did no work as no tax has been paid
into the State Treasury.
Mr. White proceeded to test the
validity of the law, which, no doubt,
was enacted for the sole purpose of
getting him out before his time had
expired, and electing in his stead

ed money placed in the Treasury by
Mr. White and his subordinates. I
was through Fusion legislation that
the ovster industry has developed
and the most of these men who are
given this money have even fought
the policy pursued by the Republi
cans and Populists in regard to the
ovster industry. I ask the law abi
ding and good people of the State if
it is right and honest to take money
from the Treasury, put there by the
hard-flsted oystermen, in the shape
of taxes, and pay out to- men who
have rendered no service to the State,
and who are not officers of the State,
which has been so declared by the
Supreme Court of the State.
The Raleigh correspondent of the
Asheville Gazette of June 19th says :
"The legislature, in their political
extra session, made more mistakes, if
possible, than they did in their regu
lar session in proportion to the time
they consumed. They took the pow
er to grant liquor license out of the
hands of the county commissioners
of Northampton county, and the act
says license shall be granted on peti
tion of a majority of the qualified vot
ers in any township on the order of
the judge holding the Supreme Court
for said county. They have by this
act either made Northampton a Pro
hibition county or established a spe?
cial Supreme Court for that county.
In amending the dispensary act for
Macon county they strike out certain
words in section three of chapter 325
laws of 1899, when the words they
legislate shall be stricken out do not
appear in section three chapter 325,

He then read from the handbook as

June 18, 1900.
I see in your paper of June 14th
extracts from a speech of Hon. A.
M. Waddell, delivered in Randolph
county, N.'C, June (, 1900, in

against the amendment ought to le

In reply to this let me say a word
of encouragement to those who may
lie intimidated by these threats.
The ex-Lieut. Colonel will not shoot.
He was Lieutenant Colonel of my
regiment ( 1 1st Cavalry) during our
great war from 1861 to '65. As
soon as he found out that he would
have to go w here there was danger
of getting hurt. When the old
State was calling on her sons for
their help, it was then that A. M.
Waddell resigned his commission
and deserted the starry cross of the
Confederacy and went to preaching
to keep out of the army. Andafter
the war was over he being a self-
constituted preacher, not called of
God, he abandoned preaching and
went into politics. I think that
he was the first Southern man that
I heard make a speech in favor of
negroes voting. If they were eligi
ble to vote then, just out of bondage,
they should le better qualified now
after thirty-live years citizenship
among Christian people with their
churches ami schools. I am not ad
vocating the negro claims, but
would like to see them treated
right. Especially the old negro
who stayed at home and took care
of what their owners had while
they were in the army. I always
"have a kind word for these old ne
groes, which is the class that will be
"the white man's party." It
the lesser lights would say that
. - a i a I ii i t it a a .
w ill never submit any proposition to disfranchised it the amendment is
the people to take from a man his adopted. It is the white man, the
right to vote. No Democrat has
ever proposed such a thing. The
charge is only intended to mislead,
to deceive and to make political cap
ital. It is entirely false. There is
not a "Democratic convention that
would not spit upon the man who
might make such a proposition.
There is not a Democratic candidate
for office who would not pledge
hir iself most solemnly against it."
P'N.t only did Gov. Jarvis make
this pledge, but also did every Dem
ocratic sjieaker from mountains to
sea, as their platform pledged that
they would. They not only pledged
the people that they would not do
this thing, but they also solemnly
assured the people that they could
not do it if they wanted to, Ieeause
it'would lie unconstitutional.

That is bad enough. Hut n.ov aro

white voters info voting fortius

any one to U'lieye their promises

this amendment matter. I know
many of them without an education
on account of the war, and various
other causes, erhaps sixty thousand
in this State, who will be disfran
chised if the amendment is adopted.
I would hate for these old heroes or
their ancestors, those who followed
Lee, Jackson, Johnson, the very best
citizens in this State to be deprived
of the privilege of voting if they
wish to do so. I trust that they
will watch these demagogue politi
cians who tell that if the amendment
is carried none but negroes will be
disfranchised. I don't believe it no
more than I did in the last cam-
aign when they promised that if
the Democrats got in power that
they would not try to disfranchise

The Democratic Papers Gira the Secret
Away The Negro Party la Yet to be
Ever since the News and Obser
ver has been under its present con
trol, it, with the second-handed
Democratic papers of the State and
South, has wrorn itself into a frazzle
and then worn the frazzle out
squalling "the negro party,"and
saying the Democratic party Was
Republican party was "the negro
party." When the Republicans
would start to show that it was not,
these papers (Observer and others)
wrould drown the sound or argu
ment by the frantic squall of "nig
ger! nigger 1! nigger!!!
The people had actually begun to
credit the Observer with not know
ing any better, with having no bet
ter sense. But the Observer has
given itself away on this as in a
thousand of other things it has said
In its issue of the 7th, it gives its
own self the lie. For under abig
head line "For a Negro Party,'' the
, TEe first step looking to the or
ganization of a Nat ional negro party
have been taken in this city (Phila
delphia). Prominent negroes Bish
ops, ministers, editors and lawyers
at a meeting yesterday decided to
place a party ticket in the field with
negro candidates. The plan is to
organize the party in every State of
the union, nominate candidates for
State and Congressional offices.
It's true this was an associated
press dispatch, but the Observer did
not correct it by an editorial. And
in publishing it without comment,
ather shows that it welcomes such
a party. The Observer knows that
as the people have begun to think,
they can no longer be fooled with
the cry of negro party.
In this State, the Democrats car
rv the negro counties, in the na
tional elections, the Democrats carry
the negro States. So the negro
either votes the Democratic ticket
or the Democrats steal them one.

We hope Mr. Lacy will not take all
