Extract From Senator Bntlcr's i
During Senator Rutler's siech at
Mnrganton June 16th, he. asked a
Mnall hoy wearing a "white suprem

when the following dialogue oecur-

1. B.: "No, sir."
Sen. B.: "Do you think yotTwill

time you are twenty-one years old?"
I. B.: "I am afraid I won't. We
are ;oor, and I will have to work."
A voice in the audience: "Sena
tor, you have got a mulatto kid."
Senator B., (looking at the boy
and looking at the man In the audi
ence): "He looks whiter than you
do." (Laughter and applause).
Voice in the audience: "Well, he

Sen. B.: "Well, you have your tag ' franchise not only you but every

prolonged applause), "and besides, I is not fortunate enough to get an ed-

be disfranchised, and the same thing
that would hapjten to him would

ucation and to educate himself to the
satisfaction of a Democratic regis
trar before 1908. Nearly every vo
ter in this audience has a son twelve
years old or under at home. Fathers,
you may lose your health, lose your
property or you may die to-morrow
and leave your boys to struggle alone
in this world and try to support
their widowed mothers! Will a
single one of you, . even if you are
educated and rich, vote for this dis
franchising scheme and run the risk
of disfranchising your own son and
putting him on a plane lower than
the town negro dude? If you do, may
the God in heaven have mercy on
your soul, even if your disfranchised
sons cannot forgive you for such a
number of substantial farmers who
t heretofore have acted and voted with
; the Democratic party ; but who to-
day are enthusiastic supporters of the
! People's Party
Among them was Kev. Noah Mer-
; cer, an aged minister of the gospel,
; who addressed the Convention in a
j strong and forcible speech. Among
! other things he stated that he had
I voted the Democratic ticket for six
; ty years, and had always regarded
' the party as a friend of the common
: people ; but now, he regretted to say,
j that he had lived to see the time
I when the leaders of his imrty had
I departed from the path of truth,
; right and justice, and had entered
! into leatrue with mammon and the
devil. That no man who was
! Christian, and had the spirit of the
S "meek and lowly" Jesus in his soul,
' would vote to disfranchise his broth-
er, his neighbor nor his neighbor's
I children. That American Indepeu
j dence and the right of suffrage, was
I purchased by the blood of our ances
1 tors, who suffered and endured hard
ships, in order' to bequeath to us,
their descendants, the right of the
ballot. That the liberties of the
common neople were as sacred to
them as to the rich, aristocratic and
it was a duty they owed to them
selves, their liod, their country and
j their children, to stand firm for the
right in this fight, and to preserve
those literties. The old gentleman
spoke with great earnestness
Hon. H. F. Seawell, People s Par
ty candidate for Attorney Gem ral,
was present and made a strong speech
in detenee of the people, tie ar
raigned the Democratic party for its
unfaithfulness and its related at
tempts to deceive the i)eopIe, and
showed that the proposed amend
merit to the constitution was simply
a partv method a scheme to dis- J
franchise the common people in or
der to perpetuate the machine rule
of the Democratic party.
Mr. Seawell is a splendid debator,
a strong reasoner, and able to cope
with any of his oppdnents. His
speech had a telling effect upon our
people, and much enthusiasm was
manifested. Our people are in dead
earnest and are now organizing and
preparing to hold Robkson and
save the State.

Here is an extract from the inter-.
view given by Simmons to the Ral-:
eigh Post on September 2th, 198, 1
as follows : -
"These leaders and their claquersj
know, as every intelligent man in j
the State knows, that the Democratic '
plan to protect the white men of the'
East from the horrible negro rule
under which that fair section of the I
State now suffers and languishes is
to take advantage of the recent decis-;
ion of the Supreme Court to the ef-;
feet that one section or county may ;
have one system of county govern
ment and another section or county ;
may have an entirely different sys-1
tern of county govamment ; and :
while according to the white coun-!
ties the right to elect all their local j
officers, to restore the old system of i
Democratic county government in ;
the counties having negro majority's, ;
thus lifting the ruthless heel of the j
ngro from off the neck of the white !
men who live in the negro ridden i
eounties of the East."
Now, this was the Democratic-.
plan, on September 25th, 1 898, to
remove the "ruthless heel of the ue- t
gro from off the neck of white men" j
in the fair Eastern section of ourt
State. This system of government j
the Democrats have for years con-!
tended would prevent any "negro j
domination" in the East, and give !
to that section of the State" the lest
Everybody familiar with politics'
of the State knows that the Demo-1
crats have always professed great i
satisfaction and safety in the East if;
the appointive system could be main- j
tained for that section.
that the Democrats in the Legisla
ture of 1899, took advantage of the
decision of the Supreme Court, re
ferred to by M r. Simmons, and re
stored to the. Eastern . counties the
same old form of county government
as prevailed when the Democrats
were in power.
This was their plan for twenty j
years to protect the East from thei
"ruthless heel" of the negro. They !
have returned to that plan now, ami
according to their own Chairman,
as declared in the alovc interview,
they are protected from the negro.
Then the question naturally arises:
The East having the guarantee of
absolute protection and safety under
the old Democratic plan, whaf was
the necessity for the amendment?
It raises a suspicion immediately
that there must Ih another element
or factor in politics that the Sim-

The effort was made some days
ago to obtain from the Treasury the
cost of the session of the Legislature
week before lat, but the amount
was not known, the officials said.
To-day the question was again asked.
They said they did not know, but
that both the sessions of 1899 and
1900 cost only $58 more than the
session of 1897., Charlotte Observer.
Only $58 more? We understood
that your grounds for ousting the
"Fusion Legislature" was on account
of its 4 extravagance." And now, you
are still more extravagant !
And the end is not yet, you will
have a nice little bill to present
