Ayer is absent from the city at present, being in Baltimore with his mother, who is critically ill. , Vk learn that another call for volunteers has been made by tlie President, each State to furnish its quota, as before. " We acknowledge, with thanks, the invitation to be present at the Commencement exercises ofTrin itv College, which takes place June 8th. ' Thanks to manv of the dele gates to they State Convention, who called and subscribed for Tiik Home Rule, promising to send us good clubs on' their re turn home. We sympathize with Dr. Thompson in the sickness of his children. First, they were all sick with measles, now his little J)oy, Cyrus, is critically ill with pneumonia. Rev. E. C; Glknx preached two very earnest and instructive sermons last Sunday at the Cen tral Methodist Church. Text taken from John : ''Loose him und let him go. Mr. K. C.

The fellow who says that The Home Rule will not be in the midst of the fight, battling for the people's rights, in this campaign, don't know it right Too many Populists have said to us : "Bro ther, you are right; go ahead, and the people will stand by vou. We learn from a reliable source that the Senatorial district, of which Iredell is a part, has agreed to run a Populist and a Republican, and both are sure to be elected. They surely have forgotten that Dr. Mott lives in Iredell county, and he and his party and the Doctor is the only member) are ready to fuse with somebody. - ( We call attention to the error in the report of the resolutions adopted at the State Populist Convention, where they read that the address of the three National Chairmen was adopted. This should be stricken out that of the ; Populist Chairman only should appear. See artice from Progressive Fanner in this issue of The Home Rule. Rutherford college, in Burke County, an old time-hon orefd institution,' held its Com mencement this week, which, we learn, was largeiy attended. Hon R. Z. Linney, member from the Eighth Congressional District delivered the Literary Address This . institution has htted ana qualified men : who are filling po sitions of honor from one end o the nation to the other.

Russell at the .Mansion Thursday night to the ' North Carolina volunteers was a handsome affair, and was a grace ful compliment to the brave de fenders of our 'country's honor. Brethren, a little energy on your part, and a . word to your neighbor in favor .of. The Home Rule, will place the paper in everv Populist familv in the State, and thus make that family and the editor both hannv. Will a a? you -do this ?

Gdd have, mercy on the Demo crats for the many false promises they have made us, but, by the eternal, we never can trust them in power again. W e were glad to shake the hand of out old. friend, Theophi lus White, at the State Conven tion. He . is Chairman of the First Congressional District, Peo ple's Party, and. is looked upon as the patriarch of Populism in that - district. He says Demo: cratic promises don't go for much in his district, and we were led to believe he was right, from the way the district voted against Dem-Pop fusion solid. Every loyal North Carolinian must feel gratified to see such a steady improvement of the capi tal of the State. : We doubt whether there is a city in the State, or in the South, that can boast of more substantial im provement for the last two years than the city of Raleigh in mag nificent residences, business houses and manufacturing inter ests ; and for the number of in habitants, fewer deaths have oc curred. WE are satisfied that hundreds of our friends all over the State who are not yet subscribers to The Home Rule, will become such when they, see a copy of the paper. We send sample copies this week to friends in all por tions of the State, feeling assured that, upon receipt of the same, they will respond with their own subscription and a good club of their nefghbors and friends. Our terms are within reach of all, and The Home Rule will be strictly in it through, this campaign. In case of Dem. Pop. fusion, it would not only be fusion " but contusion ' and refusion, for Pops, don't vote for any more Payne election laws, nor county governments run by cliques and rings, Out straight-out nonest majority elections by the people. The Dems could not deliver then- goods. .The Pops oould not de liver their goods. The Democrats might carry some votes, but only for the purpose of defeating the Populist portion. Any intelligent Ponulist knows that there is no being so much nated by a Dem ocrat as a Populist, and hence if co-operation was formed, it wrould only be for the destruction of the Populists. It is always time to pray, but especially is this the time to watch. , . i got the ear of the Chairman, aid sed ore . favorable the past to a wonderful degree, was lumbering away in a bis nt " the subject of Chns, but we fear, like the ancient Is- style, when it was learned ttet"nf TV - naf; rael.te we have forgotten, hts ' wp' fpp snif in savinor that it thpAr n,n.jn ... . :r U n Trt gwwuucBs luwatus us , auu, n uur ulist.
