He made a s'rong talk, saying i:o
Chaiigc? so radical in their character
had ever been made, so far as he
could learn, in the history of the
State. It absolutely disrobes the
President of his prerogatives. He
declared that he did not believe the
Senate had the constitutional riht
to do such a thing. The change he
termed absolutely without precedent.
He spoke of the condition existing
in 1S70, when the Democrats hftd
tbe majority and the President of
the Senate was a Republican. Then
the Democrats did not take away any
of the prerogatives of the President.

Mr. Hileman asked leave to take
from the clerk's desk the bill which
he introduced today, which is in re
gard to the charter of the Fanners'
Aliiance, and which repeals the i.ct
of 1S03 and leaes the charter of the
Alliance) as it was before 1893. Mr,
Payue said he wished to effrr an am
endment. Mr. Fiench said the pur
pose of the "co-oporationists" to
pass this bill and to right what was
a great wrong done to tbe common
people cf the State; that it was their
purpose to ri:ht wrongs, and that
they would be responsible for ali
done; that filburstenngar.d factions
opposition would be strenuously op
posed. Ha declared that it was well
to stfcrt faii; that the Democrats
would be giyen an opportunity to
have all sorts of privileges, lie
gave assurances that the oPJcers of

Mr. Payne said that ! e '.van ted to
protect those persons who had given
notice that they desired to withdraw
their funds. Hileman said that the
act of the last Legislatuie ia regard
to the Alliance was a most diabolical
piece of work; that it was done to
wreck the Alliance and cjuse a rush
upon its funds. He said that all the
Alliance asked was to have its
charter restored as at first. Payte
said that upon French's statement
that the ouiceis of the Alliance
would treat all subscribers to the
fund fairly, he would not oiler an
amendment Peebles sid he was
prepared to vote for Hilemau's bill;
that he assured the Alliance in his
county that he would vote to restore
the charter t-.s it was. Smith, of
Gates, and McKenzie caid that if the
co operationiets had any idea: that
the Democra's were organized ' to
yole against the bill they w ere great
ly mistaker; that there was no party
opposition, and that they themselves
would tupport the bill. The yeas
and nays were demanded and the
call was sustained Hileman made
a statement that only $3,000 had
been withdrawn from the f uud. In
explaining his vote Ray, Dem erit,
of Macon said tnat he was a member
of the la3t Hoi'se which yoted to
repeal; that he did not vote for thej
bill, but I bat be wanted to
say that the misrepresentations,
of their action as to the mat
ter were so gross that if. they were
equally distribufed over the universe
trej would wreck the souls of the
homaa race. He said the bill was
passed at the instance of leading
Alliancemea, snob as Gen, B Bt
Vance, who said that, politicians b io
gotten into the Alliance and were
prostitu ing it for po!i treat purposes.
On theie statements the Legis'a'ure
acted. Ray s:i:d Hilemnn had eu;d
that it-was understood that the Fob
scribers to this fund should cover
withdraw this fund. But hov whs
it "understood ?'' It certainly was
net so stilted ia the charter of 'he
Alliance. He denonrctd f Le asser
tion that the action of the last Legis
lature wn3 diabolical. lie said that
the two ye;:r3 time for withdraws! ol
funds was ample and be therefore
voted for the bill tocly. The bill
then passed its second and third
readings, after Young, colored Re
pubheau, of Wake, had explained
bis yote, and incidentally attacked
Gen. Vance as a Democra'ic partisan.
City nm! Connty 4verui:;ct.
Our city end county government

mora cf the taxes of the people than

well-informed mini cm say that
these govern men tt , w.i a rule, laye
not been well managed. There mav

fact that ia all the history of the

pcign a change in our system of
county goverment was projiosed by
one party, antagonized by the other,
Tia;e and again it has been discussed
and fought out before the' pcopi

always vreut down in defeat. Tins
question was not, in my judgment,
the pronvne-nt question in the last
