In the rear of the first section was the sleeper, "Seville," i'urchased Thrtfe Arihored- Cruisers. The Madrid correspondent of the Observer asserts that Spain has pur chased three fine armored cruisers of '3,000 Jons, 7,500 tons and 4,223 tons; with a speed of 25 knots, which will form the nucleus of a third, squadron, which will be ready within three weeks, and with which the govern ment thinks it can protect the Canaries and the Spanish coast in every,emer gency. k lilan-co's Report on the Fight. The official rerort of Captain General Blanco cn the fighting near Santiago de Cuba, says: "Three hundred Amer icans attacked the Spaniards near Si- bouey and Sevilla. Tho Spaniards' had three men killed and three wounded. The Americans then attacked General- Rubon's camp, but were repulsed, the Spaniards pursuing them and taking possession of their ammunition aud clothes. . Spain Apprehensive.

Admiral Camara's IMun.

Admiral Dewey will thus either leave the bajr unprotected or divide his fleet. This move ha made a good Jm -pression here. " ter.

COUNT! eoVEBNMESTT. t The act of the last General A fisembly restoring to the right Of local self- government by Ihe- lection of their county commissioners and justices of the peace by the vote of the people in the respective counties, and the safe guards therein provided, meets with our hearty approval, and we pledge the Peoples party, to the continued support and maintenance of that legis lation, and warn the voters of the necessity of preventing injariotis changes in that act, and of the danger of electing members cf the General Assembly hostile thereto. '. LEGAL TENDER liONEt. We favor the exercise by the State o? North Carolina of the reserved con stitutiobal power to. make ail gold and silver coins of the United States (in cluding the trade dollar) a legal ten der for the payment of debts; and that this right be inforced by the passage of an appropriate act by the General Assembly. GOLD NOTES AND MORTGAGES. We believe that all money demands should be payable in the lawful money of the United States without preference or discrimination, and therefore favor the passage by the General Assembly of ta law to prohibit the taking or giv ing of gold notes, bonds and mort gages in this State, and the making of ill money demands solvable in any kind of lawful money of the United States. ... - -- . INTEREST. We pledge ourselves to maintain the six per cent, interest law enacted by the la6t General Assembly. PTJBLIO SCHOOLS. The. action of the Peoples'- party members of tho last General Assembly has demonstrated, beyond question, that the Peoples' party has been true to ita antecedent platform declarations iu favor of public education.. We de mand still further . improving and broadening of the public school sys tem of the State as rapidly as a proper regard for the interest of the taxpayers and the resources of the State will per mit. We also favor such revision of our present bchool system as may in crease the efiiciepcy of our public schools and insure the most competent and eflfectiye supervision. We think that the committee on Education of the next .General Assembly should invite aad 6ecure, as far as possible, tho co operation of the leading teachers and educators of tho State in framing and perfecting the school law. JUDICIARY. Our judiciary should be lifted above the plane of party politics. , REFORMATORY. FOR TO UNO CRIMINALS. We favor the establishment of i State institution for the reformation of free passes to ptlbiic 'officials, jafid forbidding their receiving the same. .'-NORTH CAROLINA EAtLROAD LEASZ. We coildemn the lease Of the North Carolina Railroad to tho Southern Railway Company for ninetj-riine years, not only as a bad business trans ictibn in which the interests of the State, amounting to the large sam of 83,000,000 invested in geed paying property yielding an income, were sac rificed; but we also, in most emphatic terms, condemn the hasty and secret manner in which it was- done se.Veral years before the former thirty years' lene by its terms, would tuve expired. We call the attention- Of the neorde of Ihe State to the fact that ebme mys terious power has prevented an inves tigation through the proper legal chon-' nels of this transaction, which was so universally condemned by the press of the State and all classes of our citizens, when it first became known. We there fore demand that the next General As sembly fully investigate this transac tion, and to the end that the interests of the State may be fully protected as far as can bo doUe such legislative action shall be takeil as to counteract, as far as possible, this unwise and Secret transaction. - ' j REMOVAL OF CASES. The removal of cases Irora the State courts to the Federal court3 for trial wherein the plaintiffs arepoor persons and defendants are rich foreign cor porations, on application of defend ants, is a growing evil in North Caro lina, and in its praeticul operation fre-( quently amounts to a 'denial '-of -justice to poor suitors and therefore should be condemned. We demand, therefore that the next General Assembly shall pass such ' a general statute' on this subject as to take from such corpor ations doing businees in this Stato the privilege of carrying on business in North Carolina, and withdrawing the protection of the State extended to their businees, if they persist in escap ing the jurisdiction of ouf courts when claims are sought to be enforced against them therein. r We advocate such legislation as will insure a jubt listing and taxation of all evidences of debt and make an equit able adjustment of the burden ai taxa tion between the. debtor and a (cred itor. REDUCTION OF SALARIES . In order to keep otir public" servants in thorough tottch and sympathy with the oppressed masses, and to check to some extent, the scramble for office, we demand a reduction of salaries' un til each time as through an iucreass of the currency the, price of propeity send products will justify the present rates. . f . .

The article reflects the growing - resentment against the poweis. No New Cases oT Yellow Fever. No new c;tses pf yellow fever have been reported to the Marine Hospital, and Dr. Wyman, Surgeon-General, paid that he considered the situation encouraging. Advices from surgeons engaged in the inspection of a number of Southern points as a njatter, of pre caution, show all points so far in spected to be free from any suggestion of infection. Time Sot Arrived. The Madrid correspondent cf the Daily Telegraph says: "Senor Sagas ta said the rumors about peace nego tiations and tho conditions for ending hostilities are utterly groundless. The time nas not arrived for talking of peace." i Ordered to Key West. The auxiliary cruiser Prairie has re ceived orders detaching her, from'the North, Atlantic patrol fleet, and direct ing her to proceed at full speed io Key West. The Prairie has her bunkers filled to their utmost capacity and her hold, is 'also full of coal of which she has sufficient to last her at cruising speed for thirty-five days.

It is believed that the town of Cai- manera, on the upper bay, is about to be abandoned by the Spaniards, who are said to be in a desperate condition, owing to lack of food. The report is that they will leave the town and fall back on Guantanamo. Eight Ips Hought. The government has purchased eight largo ships of over 4,600 tons burden, eicbfor use o& the Atlantic coast, e- DEMOCRATIC ADMINISTATION CON DEMNED. " Wo condemn the Democratic admin istration in North Carolina for its fail ure to execute the anti-trust laws of the Stata now on our statute books, and call, the attention of the people to the fact that official action in this re gard is not in harmony with the ultra anti-truat sentiment, heretofore and now beiDg expressed by the leaders of the Democratic party. RAILROADS. We favor the establishment of such equitable and low freight- rates and charges for, products shipped from North Carolina as will enable shippers and producers to realize at least a fail remuneration after costs of such ship ments have been deducted. We call especial . attention to the possibilities of the trucking - industry in Eastern North Carolina, an indus try which, but for the" extortionate tariffs of the common carrier, would increase - an. hundred fold, and carry ing with it the greatest prosperity to that highly favored section it has ever known. We ernestly recommend to our State Railroad Commission that they use all the pewers they have to bring about such redactions; and especially that they urgyj before the inter-otate Coni: j merce Commission all complaints of extortion and discrimination with such vigor and continuity that should they fail to secure remedial action by the Tnter-State Commerce Commission, all the peoplo would know where to placo the responsibility for existing .outrages; and if their . facilities for fighting the battles of the people before the Inter-State Commerce Commission are inadequate for that purpose, that they make recommendation" to the General Assembly of amendments to existing laws, to the end that low and fairer rates may be established, both in the State and Inter-State jurisdic tions, I2c8ohed,' That we recommend a constitutional prohibition of the pur chase, lease or rental of parallel qj competing railway lines. ; TREE PASSES.
