A short time ago the Butl er-Wood correspondence came out; Only last Tuesday morniijg the daily papers told us of Mr, Butler's decree. In the in terval ; between these two gathng gun reports, June Fortune and Ed. Kestler fired off some small guns. We sympathize with the average Populist, because he does not know what to do.

He has been writing letters back here telling what a good place Mexico is all because they have free silver down there. W1 have not read all he has written, but' we have never seen where the Judge says any thing about whether an American dollar is worth two dollars in Mex ican money or, not. Maj. Harper of the Chester & Lenoir Railroad said such was the case while he was down there not long ago. We should like very much to know how this matter stands and why it so A WARNING, We clip the following trom the I ate." Progressive Farmer of last week : We hardly ever find out how good a man is until you read his obituary. Senator Liudsey, of Rockingham county,however, is an exception. lhe moment Le sug gested the idea of Populist-Democratic fusion in the State, he be came a hero in the eyes of certain Democratic editors. The man who proposes a fusion between Democrats and Populists "a hero in the eves of certain Dem ocratic editors 1" The public will. a. no doubt, remember and indulge us a little while we repeat what has often been said before, viz , that there are so-called Democrats in North Caroliua, who are in sym pathy with the principles of the Populist party Those same Dem ocrats have conceded and conceded again, to Populists in the hope of gaining them over to their Democ racy. Tho above quotation tells what the result of the courtship has been. Tde Farmer makeo sport of those Democrats who are simple enough to lake Lindsay's suggestion. But this reference to certain Democratic editors remind ed us that the only way for Demo crats to treat Populists i9 to charge them with error and prove the charge and ask- them as honpat men td return to the fold. We can not express .in language strong enough our detestation of that pol icy which would try to gain con verts to Democracy surrender of principles, or by co-operation so-called. Tho3e Democrats who have followed tha vain phantom of gaining Populists by makmg Pop ulists of themselves justly merit ridicule and . condemnation, and they serve as frightful - examples and a warning to all that pays to have political principles and to believe and defend them in victory as well as in defeat. other countries."
