Chairman Manly . was authorized
to address a communication to
Chairman Ayer and request an ims
mediate consideration of the propo.
sition by his committee, as the time
for printing and distributing tick
ets is now very short.
During the past few days many
letters have come in from prominent
Democrats and Populists in all sec
tions of the State urging joint action
between all advocates of free coin
age, so that the cause of the white
metal shall be triumphant on elec
tion day. There has been a wide
spread desire expressed also for such
joint action as would make it cer
tain that the State should be saved
from Rus8ellism and its attendant
eyils. As the matter now stands,
the race is in doubt. The Demo-
Grats have reason to hope and be
lieve that Mr. Watson will win, but
they know that recent negro coloni
zation endangers the prospect of
success with two silver candidates
in the field. There is not a patri
otic man in the State no matter
whether he is for gold, silver or cop

mere thought of having a Goyernor

But on Tuesday the following
telegram was sent out from Raleigh
which ends the matter of fusion :

Raleigh, Oct. 13. The Demo

caused a profound sensation in tie

Found dead !
There is something: so shocking abonl
sudden death that the mere mention of it
wrenches the nerves of sensitive people.
Millions of people pray for deliverance from
it. Kvery Sunday in every Episcopal church
in the world, these words are said :
" From battle, and murder and sudden death
Goou Lord, deliver us."
Just why sudden death should be shock
ing, and death after lingering disease ea?)
to bear, would puzzle any one to tell. Ii
would seem that it would be more terribl'
to see some loved one wasting away, daih
becoming weaker daily slipping toward I
death no less certain because it was slow ia
coming- Consumption causes more death?
than heart disease more than cholera
more than yellow fever more than any
Other disease the world has ever known.
And yet people are careless about it. A man
in danger of sudden death from heart dis
ease can avoid the danger simply by keepinp
quiet and avoiding excitement. Consump
tion goes right on with its deadly work, nc
matter what the man does or how he con
ducts himself, if he doesn't take the righf
medicine to cure it. Consumption affect
the whole body. It is a blood disease. It
permeate! the whole system. It shows in
the lungs because the blood goes to the
lungs for purification. It carries impurities
there to be made pure. If there is too much
impurity, the lungs are over-worked over,
loaded the impurity stops there. The
germs of disease stop there. They develop
and multiply and then consumption take
definite form. Dr. Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery cures 98 per cent, of all cases
of consumption, lingering coughs, throat
and bronchial diseases if it is taken accord
ing to directions. Get it at drug stores .
