The Standard did not get the
'iiGuai courteous request to note his
peaking but inquired to be sure it
-s?rs3 right in announcing: his coming.
Mr. Shuford never lacks seltcon-
?6.ence and is never in want of
rioaiething to bemean Democrats

But The Standard does not
want to be nevere on Mr. Shuford
about the administration; it is fash

Mr. Shuiord did not do 3 b id or

like most ordinary t-lr jrts and teemed
to have some pretty zooi stul! in V.
His record st-emed qui'e enviable
and we don't understand how our
Populist friends m Cabarrus drop

re-ncmh.-v him. There seemed i
quite a current against him in con

just what was the matter. They

"Well," said he, "the Rowan delega

We must do the epcak-r the jui
tice to say that he did not speak a
word against the Republicans
That's right; look for a shilling
mark to throw mud on. There is
room to misrepresent Democrats.
Towers are measured by their snad
ows, great men by their calumnia
The crowd, not large at Grst, grew
smaller and smaller till it was rather
a formality to thank an attentive
audience. He wisely put in h;s
false and unscrupulous charges of
deceit and hypocricy against the
Democracy in the first of his speech
or they would have fallen on still
It was rather ccld comfort for
Mr. Shuford, just as it should ha'se
If Mr. Hileman is to represent the
people in the legislature he should
tell them how he is going to vote on
the silver question, if not, they can
vote for a man who will.
We asked for the news from the
county campaign. Well, said one,
there is not much, but Hileman
won't come squarely out and say
whether he vail or will not vote for
a free silver Senator.
It is a singular fact that every
Democratic candidate is willing to
place himself on record v.3 to voting
for a free coinage Senator, but now
our Populiet3 say yen &rc too parti

profess to be the daddy of the free

think all the evil was in the gold

in the free coinage of silver. It
