TJIK TIME 1IAH
How any good and Intelligent
man can arrive at any other conclu
sion, I cannot see, provided he will
lay aside prejudice and calmly con
niler the part and present record and
nothings of the leaders of the Demo
We readily admit that there are
good men in the rank and file of
that party who ae like Paul of old.
Vi.: Paul was an honest man at
heart and wanted to do right, but
Much had been hid early teaching and
training, that he was under delusion,
an evident from the fact that he
thought lie wau doing (lod's Her vice,
w hen he was itersmitlng the true
cliurcli of t hrlst. See Acts 10:9 10.
Then it la clear that l'aul was de
luded by his early training! Ills
teachern, either because of their cor
rupt hearts or their ignorance, had
taught Paul wrong, and . that led
Ami here let me say, there is a
striking analogy between Paul's con
dition and the condition of thou
sands who are In the Democratic
rty today in North Carolina.
That the above assertion is true
is evident from several consider,
1. l'aul was taught wrong, and by
that he was led astray.
l'aul was honest and thought
he was right when he was wrong.
It required a miracle to con
vince Paul that he was wrong.
Now let us see If the three posi
tions taken above are true, when ap
plied to rank and file of the Demo
cratic party, their teachers and lead
ers. But to keep from making this
article too long, we must condense
all we possible can. But let us notice
1. PAUL WAS TAUGHT WRONG AC.
Now I ask in all sincerity, has not
the rank and file in the Democratic
party been taught wrong by their
leaders for over 40 years?
They certainly have been! And
while I dislike to refer to it, yet as
an honest man and in defence of
truth, I must ask the honest reader
to go with us back to 1860 and '61.
Who was it that taught you then,
that secession was right and legal
and to secede from the great com
pact of states composing this glorious
Union, would be to your interest?
Answer democratic leaders by the
press and from the stump and pul
pit! You know this to be true as
gospel, provided you are 60 years of
ae, or even well read the history of
Were you deceived by them? Yes.
And out of the Union you went, be
lieving like Paul, that you were
right, and like Paul was by the
church, you persecuted men, women
and children, who did not fall in
line with you, according to the
teachings of your democratic leaders.
And as for preachers, they had no
showing at all, unless they favored
Recession! And you were taught by
the same leaders to look with con
tempt on your brother in the church,
provided he was not a secessionist,
being deceived, you did it, and by
this the church lost in a great
measure its power for good!
Well I take it for granted that
you are ready to acknowledge you
were deceived by your leaders. Then
I ask, was secession for you good, as
your leaders taught you? No! a
thousand times no! Saying nothing
of the mllllones of property lost, the
bones of hundreds of thousands of
- our loved ones North and South,
lie bleaching in the soil proclaim
that secession was not for your good,
although your leaders by the press
. and from the stump and pulpit, de
clared it was for your good.
Now let me appeal to every
honest, but deceived democrat and
ask you, have not your leaders and
teachers been deceiving you for over
Haven't they been on every side
of nearly every great issue that has
come before the people? They cert
ainly have! '
They have declared in the most
solemn terms, that frOe trade was
the only salvation of the country
and got you to believe it and you
put them In power! Did they abol
ish the protective tariff? No! They
told you the free coinage of gold
and silver at the ratio of 16 to 1,
was the all Important issue, and if
you would put them in power you
should have it ' Ac. You believed
them and gave them contol of the
National Government President,
House and Senate. Did they do
what they promised? No! But
killed every bill introduced favor
ing what they swore they would
give you! Like Paul, you were de

lmr. and afsonsfism ha na
U over the country.
But let US now coma mnn iirwt-
ly to North Carolina. Did they not
tell you that you were In danger of
negro domination Ac. Yen, and you
believed them. They cried loudly
for white supremacy. Were you in
any danger of black supremacy?. No!
I think every negro county In the
state went democratic.. Then the
Democratic party U the negro party
in North Carolina nr K
w.m vwuiiuioriu leaders are
rogues and stole the negro's vote.
We are bound, as you see, to
brand Ihem with one or the other.
Then If you are an honest man - and
In favor of white supremacy, to be
consistent, you mast leave the Dem
ocratic party, for it cannot be, as
you see, a party with honest leaders
and a white supremacy party too.
But from my standpoint it must be
a irty whose leaders are in favor
of negro domination and stealing
both. Can you stand both of th
TiiHev,bi practiced under false pretense?
Now for the facts, viz: Demo
cratic leaders appointed all the poll
holders for the election In Aug. 1900.
Well, did they appoint any negro
poll holders where white men could
be had? Answer. Yes! About 200
in all. Then those negro poll hold
ers were judges as to whether men
had a right to vote or not! Which
then was on top, the negro or the
white man? You are bound to say
the negro, and he, had democratic
guards there armed to keep the
negro on top of the white man.
Who then put the negro up and the
whlto man down, Jind who appoint
ed armed men to keep the white
man down and the negro on top?
Answer. Democratic leaders, who
cried themselves hoarse for "White
Supremacy!" Honest democrats,
can you stand all that?
Well from the foregoing the lead
ers of the Democratic party must
favor negro supremacy. And from
my standpoint they must be rogues
also, from the fact they claimed
that they got 2,000 more votes in
Halifax county than there are regis
tered voters in that county, includ
ing Republicans, Populists, Demo
crats and Negroes. And the proof
of the above is abundant, for just
such thefts were committed in
many counties in the state, includ
ing Davidson and Forsyth.
Well, democratic leaders have
claimed to be very loyal to both,
the Federal and State Constitutions,
and they-made some of you believe
it. But the facts as shown up by
the democratic legislatures of 1898
and 1900, shows conclusively that
they are not loyal to either. They
could take the oath of allegance to
Federal Constitution, and then vio
late the 14th amendment. They
violated the Constitution of North
Carolina by enacting laws contrary
They tried to make you believe
that the Populists and Republicans
were all office seekers, but democrats
were not, that they were only work
ing to "save the state." But when
they reached control of the state, by
lieing, fraud, deception intimida
tion, theft and murder, what did
they do? Answer. They commen
ced increasing salaries and creating
new offices, so as to give pie to as
many of their favorites as possible!
But honest democrats, I call your
attention to the fact that your taxes
and mine must be increased to meet
all these things.
Now I ask you to pause and
calmly consider all these things.
Unless you do, like Paul, nothing
but a miracle will convince you
that you have been and are now
wrong by following democratic
I know how hard it is to brake
off from them. I was raised up in
a democratic community, I heard
their teaching, viz: "That only
democrats are right, and a man, be
his age or calling what it might,
was not worthy of respect or fit to
associate with, if he was not a demo
crat. And so strongly and persist
ently were these things instilled into
my mind as I grew up, in the main
I believed them, and like many
others, I acted accordingly.
I well remember when I would
not tro and hear a certain minister
preach, because he was republican
And I hardly showed him respect
when I met him. Yet no doubt he
was a irood man. How I wish now
that I could beg his pardon, but
cannot, for he is dead. Like Paul, I
was deceived, for democrats said I
was treating him just as he should
be treated. About 1883 1 com men1
ced doine my own reading and
thlnklng, and like Paul, I was con-
vlnced that I was wrong In follow
ing democratic leaders, so I left
them and burnt the bridge behind
me, and God being my helper, I
will never return. And now one of
the great regrets of my life is, that
I cannot apologize and beg pardon
of that minister that I would not
hear preach because he was not a
democrat. He is dead, I cannot beg
his pardon, but God knows I am
sorry I treated him as I did. For
20 years I followed the Democratic
Now honest democrats, if you
will only pause and consider, read
and think for yourself, I believe,
for vour own eood. and that of
others, you will leave the party,
that has caused so many heart aches,
bloodshed and variences among
brethren, neighbors and is imped
ing the progress of Christianity in
our. land. Come out from among

tbe Aaserfeaa Legation at Coat all
Washington, July 11. The State
Department has received the amount
of the American indemnity claims
against Turkey $95,000 through the
American legation at Constantinople.
As is always the case, tbe claims
In the aggregate considerably exceed
the amount of the indemnity actu
ally paid, but our Government has
expressed Itself satisfied with tbe
payment. It assumes full responsi
bility for the distribution, the Tur
kish Government leaving It to the
State Department to distribute the
money among the claimants at its
discretion and after its pwn fashion.
These claims are principally based
upon losses sustained by American
missionary and educational institu
tions in Turkey, notably those at
larpoot and Marash, but there are a
number of individual claims, such
for instance as that of the family of A7J Jni ?n . ,, ,

ably for 2 Cents.
Durham, N. C, July 11. News
was brought here tonight by pas
sengers on the Norfolk and Western
train that a negro boy named Drum
right was murdered late yesterday
afternoon by his cousin, both were
boys, one twelve and the other four
teen years of age.
Some men at work on a bridge
gave the younger boy t wo cents to
o after a bucket of water. The
two boys went off together, and late
in the afternoon the younger one
was found in a dying condition,
passing away soon afterwards. Since
then nothing has been heard from
the older boy, and the supposition
Is that they got into a row over the
two cents and that the murder re
sulted. The particulars about the
affair are very meager.
A Disappointing- Election Law.
From the vew York Tribune.
If the test to which it was put at
Annapolis last Monday proves any
thing, Maryland's new ballot law
rushed through a subservient Dem
ocratic legislature seems destined
to disappoint in practice the hopes
of partisan advantage which prompt
ed its enactment.
MORE TROUBLE IN CHINA-
NEW INSURGENT ORGANIZATION
TAKE PLACE OF BOXERS.
They Want to Expel all Foreigners From
China It is believed that Many of the
High Officials Sympathize With Them.
Pekin, July 11 The "Society of
Allied Villagers," the new insurgent
organization which has taken the
place of the Boxers, is apparently
encouraged by its victory over the
troops soutn oi
Paoting Fu, and
here indicate that it is growing
rapidly and becoming bolder. Al
though it is difficult to secure details
concerning the operations of the
new insurgent association, grave
fears are entertained here that there
will be the most serious trouble in
the near future. In some quarters
is suspected that many of the high
officials secretly sympathize with
the new Boxers, and that genuine
efforts to suppress them will not be
made unless by the active efforts of
the allied forces.
It is announced that Earl Li Hung
Chang has ordered General May-
ukun, who has arrived at Luancheng
Huen, to immediately take re-in-forcements
to Chichou. Luancheng
Huen is south of Chenting Fu and
General Mayukun has ten thousand
troops there. A portion of these
forces is located at Loch in Fu, with
the soldiers at Yunshib Kai, and
they are on their way north. They
will occupy the country in the vic
inity of Pekin, to within twenty
miles of the city, in accordance with
the agreement of the French and
English commanders. It is said
that the French forces evince no de
sire to interfere with the Chinese
imperial troops in the rebellious dis-
trlcts. Chichou is eagerly awaiting
the results of Li Hung Chang's or
der to General Mayukun. -
The number of armed troops pos
sessed by the society of allied vil
lagers is not known, but it is re
ported here that immense increases
are being made in their ranks and
the more optimistic of the insur
gent, hope yet to be able to drive
all foreigners out of the empire.
The growth of this insurrection is
certain to cause further complica
tions between the Chinese govern
ment and the powers.

number of politicians. . "s
.Senator Hansbrough was in' con
ference with Jud La Moure over
North Dakota affairs.
There was an Alaska excursion
party, consisting of Senator John C.
Jones, of Nevada, and his son Iloy;
former Senator Marion Butler, of
North Carolina; former Senator R.
E. Pettigrew, of South Dakota; Con
gressman William Sulzer, of New
York; former Senator Stephen W.
Dorsey, of New York, and a number
of mining experts; Maj. Robert M.
Catlin, San Francisco; his brother,
H. G. Catiln, New York; J. D. B.
Coates, of Atlantic, Iowa.
The party came In on a special car,
and will leave for the coast this
evening. From Seattle they will
go to Alaska on a revenue cutter,
and will spend a few weeks visiting
points of interest along the coast.
The visitors were all thoroughly
disgusted with the hot; muggy
weather, and did not hunt up any of
their friends about town.
Senator Jones, who in point of
service, Is one of the oldest, if not
the oldest, member of the senate, is
a typical Western philosopher in ap
pearance. He declined to discuss
politics, either from the standpoint
of Washington or Nevada.
Congressman Sulzer, who is sup
posed to revel in things torrid,
made the weather an excuse for say
ing nothing about politics, except
that the democrats in New York
city have clinched everything in
sight for the next municipal election,
and will not let the morality or any
other office worth having get away.
The congressman is smooth faced
and boyish looking.
Senator Butler, chairman ; of -the
populist national committee, talked
more politics than any of the others
"The populist party will go it
alone next time, and we will poll
more votes than we ever did before,"
said he. "The main issue will be
public ownership not of everything
understand but of the natural
monopolies. We are not socialists.
The so 'ialist is like a dog. You step
on his tail and he doesn't turn
around to see who hurt him. He
bites the fellow wbo happens to be
nearest. The populist believes in
competition. Let the public own
the natural monopolies, and then for
the rest, let it be every man for
himself and the devil take the hind
moat. All we ask is that there be
equality of oppotunity. We don't
believe in any Bellamy scheme
where the government owns every
thing and everybody works for the
government. A scheme of that
kind will never make men. Men
are made by keen competition,
where steel clashes against steel, and
Greek meets Greek.
"The silver question is dead for
the time being at least, and for one
I never favored the use of that word
silver. All the true populist con
tends for is money enough to trans
act business and maintain the equili
brium of prices. There is probably
gold enough now being mined to
supply all the needs of commerce in
the way of money, and it makes no
difference to me or to any one else,
whether the money is made of gold
or something else, so there is enough
of it. On the other hand, van don't
want too much of it, for that means
inflation, which is bad in its way as
contraction is in another. I believe
that coinage and the supply of money
should be regulated by law. The
people can certainly trust the people
who fix .their taxes to regulate the
supply of money. If the banks are
to control the supply of money then
they should also have the right to
"Tbe Populist party is the pro
gressive party of the South. In our
state it enacted the legislation to en
courage manufacturing which has
brought so much prosperity to that
section. We are now just beginning
to get some of the benefits of pro
tection. . New England .had the
benefit of that system a long time,
while the South was furnishing the
raw material to make the people up
there rich. It is our turn to pros

Tampa, Fla., July IS. Captain
C. F. Watts, of the ill-fated brig, L.
F. Munson, from Mobile to Bagua
IrGrande, is in the city en route to
Mobile. He himself is a physical
wreck and tells 'a most thrilling
story of the wreck of his vessel. The
itoffering of Captain Watts and his
men is something which is almosi
too horrible to be put into words.
"Wrecked upon a little raft, with
out food or water, under a blazing
sun for three days, followed by
huge, gloating sharks, seeing vessels
pass within hailing distance and
then fade into the distance, was al
most too much for a human to
stand," he says. The men, beaten
and battered by the wreck, lay more
dead than alive upon the raft, and
many of them with wounds, which
had begun to mortify When they
"Sunday, while about 200 miles
west of Tortugas, the vessel was lit
erally battered to pieces in a storm.
Almost in an instant all on board
realized that the vessel was sinking.
The life boat had been made ready,
and provisioned for several days. All
hands rushed to lower It, and in
their haste the boat was overturned
and rendered useless to them. They
only, had time to climb upon the
after house when the vessel sank,
and left them twisting In the eddy

"For three days the crew, lashed
to the top ot the aiiernouse, were
upon the tossing waves of the Gulf,
the improvised raft upon which
tney sat oeing covered a loot or
more with water and keeping that
distance all the time. Thus for
three days their bodies were under
the water. The lashing waves soon
tore the clothing from the men and
their naked bodies were exposed to
the tropical sun. "
"They saw four vessels loom into
view, and then disappear. When
the night came on, chilling winds
made the men shiver and suffer, to
be followed by the blistering heat
of a tropical sun the next day. With
dry and parched lips and throats
tney suffered only such agonies as
can be experienced, but not do.
"Monster sharks followed in their
wake, and occasionally one more
venturesome than the rest would
come and place his snout against the
little raft. These harbingers of
death were always with the un
happy and helpless crew.' Beaten
and battered in a storm of a few
days before, three men were wound-1
ed. They could do nothing for

believe his men will recover from
their terrible exposure. As he left

Trade of tbe Southern Mills With Cbtna
A large New York company en
gaged in the export trade with China
finds that its earnings for the first
six: months of the year as compared
with the same period last year fell
off about 50 per cent. This loss was
in the cotton goods business, which
has been trreatly reduced in volume
because of the war. Now it is said
that exports to China are being re
sumed, and there are prospects that
the trade from now on will show a
return to former proportions. This
will partfc-ularly favor Southern
mills, wh!-h had been highly pros
perous, while the New England in
dustry could scarcely keep In motion,
but which ,with the decline in the
Chinese demand for sheetings, drills
and the coarser weaves has lately
parsed through rather evil times.
