CONCORD, OCT., 23, 1896.
AO CUHI DOO.
It Is fashionable nowadays to look
for candidates to be taken down and
other3 set up like rolling ten pins.
The polical breezes have several
times carried the rumor that certain
changes on our county ticket were
to be made.
Now we say once for all on the
authority of Chairman A B Young
that no formal proposition has in
this vhoie campaign come to him
&a the head of the county Demo
cratic Executive Committee and
that no proposition or adyancement
for such action has ever gone out
from the committee. The whole
rumor or intimations or insinuations
that the committe were considering
-such action is absolutely without
.foundafiou in fact.
We had prepared a synopsis of the
'two Populist speeches Wednesday,
but in our press for room for all the
matter on hand they were crowded
- .ut, l.ot ti.at tbcy aro k38 interesting
uian iir. Gudgers gieuw eiTort. They
were really much more meritorious
'-and free from absurdities and pers
Teraion3 of facts, Mr. Dockery is
.really an interesting personage and
ban style that is palatable from its
sanation from the ordinary stump
speech. He surprised us by inti
mating that there con Id not be a too
great inflation of money. It made
us tnink of Continental money and
Confederate money a3 it was before
the close of the war, and as it would
have been if we had gotten our inde
pendence. On the tariff it seemed
difficult for him to give his vie vs
not in Democratic terms. Tariff for
revenue with incidental protection
would have fitted his views it seemed.
He was hard on Mr. Ilusscll and
if he could have a joint cauvasa with
him Mr. Russell would probably
wish he had not cheated Mr. Dock
ery out of the gubernatorial non ii
nation. It was rather strange that ie
could not see how the increase of
factories could help the colored race.
It seems to be a fact that the fac- ,
tories give life to a large circle of
business around them and the col
ored man comes in for his full share
of the benefits with ail of us not
immediately connected with them. It
would have been a treat to Concord
and a wholesome check to Mr. Gudg
er if Mr. Dockery could have got
ton to reply to him.
Wonder if Mr. Gudger wont think

The big hearty, healthy man is a
continual irritation to his dyspeptic
friend. Constipation is the root of
nine-tenths of the sickness of men,
and a large proportion of the sick
ness of women. It can bo cured
easily, naturally and quickly. Na
ture is constantly working as hard
as she can throw offimpurities, and
to force out poisonous refuse matter.
When there is an impediment, Dr.
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets set the
wheels working again without any
trouble. They assist nature in a
gentle, healthful, efficient way.
There is nothing violent about
their action, and yet it i-i just as
