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 cratic party. 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 him astray. 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, at ions. 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 your country! 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 66 years? 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 ceived. 1 nev TtromiflMl vnn nrncu Derltv If nlaced In nowr. Vnn .

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 thereto. 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 leaders. 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 party. 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.

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 . ,, , i.Mnv.nn.ttt kih. ,'Jday entertained an unusually buge the unfortunate bicyclist Lenz, the lttsburg man who was killed by Turkish soldiers while attempting to go around the elobe on his wheel. Nea-ro Urchin Kills Another Presum 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.

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 Chinese imperial troops soutn oi Paoting Fu, and reports receivea 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. . Mrs. Jefferson Davis HI. Portland, Maine,, July 11.

A LARGE AND DISTINGUISH ED PARTY OF POLITICI ANS AND MINING EX PERTS. MIXING PLEASURE AMD BU81KES3. An Interview With Senator Batlar Who Is a Member of the Party-He OaUlaee What the Policy of the PeopUe Party Will be. St. Paul Dispatch, July 1st. 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 regulate taxes. "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 per now." : Former Senator Stephen W. Dor sey, of New York, said that Gov. Odell had made one of the best gov ernors. New York ever had, and there had never been a more popu Iar state official, especially 'with the farming element.

WATTS AND HIS CREW THREE DAYS UNDER A BLAZING SUN WITH NOTHING TO EAT OR DRINK. ATEMI8LETALE CF Ttt SEA. The Men War Baataa and Battered ay Tha Wreck -Woaads of Sosse of the Mae had Becva to Mortify Whan Ree- 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 were rescued. "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 of the water where the vessel had been. "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. scribed. "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 themnalvea and mortification set in soon and aaaea to tne norror oi their situation." Captain Watts says he does not believe his men will recover from their terrible exposure. As he left them at Key West they were in a horrible shape. Trade of tbe Southern Mills With Cbtna Philadelphia Times 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.

Jones, of Cleveland, Ohio, and If. W. Walker, of Chicago,, spoke on The Sunday School as it should be.?' Both speakers advocated teaching children what they ought to be morally at the same time they are instructed in their books in the day schools.
