G rover Cleveland is scheduled
to thunder down the ages ad the
ne President who accepted the
annihilation of the party that
elected him as a vindication of hi9
own-statesmanship. It is, as if a
doctor were to point to the graves
of his paitients as the supreme
tokens of his professional 1 skill."
Mr. Cleveland does no such
thins; and you know it. It does
not nV in the mouth of any Dem
ocratic paper which quotes Repub
lican' authority with approbation
to no so other Democrats of re
' joicl:.j' over Republican success.
And, if we mistake not, the News

in North Carolina who have con

liance, better known as the Popu

Mr. Cleveland Republicans, you

As early as December, 1885, Mr.
Grover Cleveland, the president of
the United States, wrote a message
to Congress which mo9t sensible
men have thought expressed a
preference for the ''jaundiced met

would vote for a "jaundiced metal"
man in 1888 and in 1892 and even
accept an office under him, turning
around on the heels of it all and
writing the above? Tell us about

CONGRESSMAN SI I U-

The startling news reaches us j
from Washington that our Con
gressman, Craige Shuford, has
suddenly realized that the govern
ment ownership of railroads might
tend to Centralization. Every
body in this county knows how
eloquently Mr. Shuford has plead
ed on the 6tump, in Alliance meet
ing, and in private for govern
ment ownershipof "those grasping
corporations which are sucking the
life blood from our body politic.
To all such as have heard these ap
peals and were convinced by logic
of this singularly gifted son of
Catawba, we have ' to beg forgive
ness for being a bearer of bad
news. We have all the while
thought that Mr. Shuford would
introduce a bill to buy the Narrow
Guage, at least, if no more. We
had expected the government
could afford to buy the "people's
own line." Now, we are forced to
inform an expectant and disap
pointed people that Mr. Shuford
has suddenly realized the fact that
government ownership means cen
tralization, and, as the Populists
do not believe in centralization
and Democrats do, therefore, we
must have no government owner
ship. But to be serious, everybody yet
remembers how Shuford preached
the doctrine of government owner
ship while a candidate for Cong-ess
in this district. Now, all at
once he flops over and says he is
afraid it would tend to centraliza
tion. -UL JiW wtisk clinttl
date? But we account for this
sudden change of base from the
fact-that Mr. Shufsrd said in a
private conversation to some
friends in Lincolnton a few weeks
ago, that, if lie continued to feel
two years from now like he did
then, they would have to get an
other man to fill his place. We
believe the man can be found I
