What if the general Govern

Then we will bless God for North
Carolina ! There is, and long has
been, too great a disposition to
look to the Federal Government as

Carolina that shelters us from tbe

The people of North Caroliaa
have very much to elicit emotions
of gratitude and call forth songs of
praise. The fields of our husband
men have brought forth abundant
ly ; education has planted its
banners on bill and dell, and our
temples are vocal with unrestricted
piety. If indeed there is a croaker
in North Carolina, be is strangely
out oi his latitude. What can man
want that is not found here T A
magnificent country, grand in
mountain scenery and ocean's broad
expanse! Her plains as fertile as
the delta of the Nile and her peo
pie, men and women, of more than
Roman virtue. What care we for
tempests without, save as we open
our hearts to gentle charity and
welcome tbe stranger that knocks
at our door I Beally we have no
unkindness for tbe less fortunate
people of other States. Ii 1m
migrants come to ns from the
wasted fields of Vermont we will
take them in to share of our abun

sunlight of our Southern homes.
Is there no consolation in thisT
We have seen some people who
would feel poor with the riches of
Cresns. Some men who would be
unhappy in a garden of delicious
fruits and ever blooming flowers,
but no true North Carolinian can
escape the exlleration of spirit and
joyonaness of heart incident to his
present surroundings and the pros
pect of the re election of Zeb Vance
to the Senate.
The Daily Standard-Union, of
Brooklyn, edited by Murat Hal
stead, has for sometime been en
gaged in presidential candidate
making, and what is strange about
the matter is the zeal and ability
he displays in tbe advocacy of David
Bennett Hill as tbe man for the
Democracy to place before the
American people as its candidate
for the highest office within their
Some there are who may be
curious to know by what authority
Mr. Halstead speaks for the De
mocracy. The truth is he is Gov.
Hill's volunteer aide ds camp. He
has been signaled to leave tbe
field, but he continues to salute
His Excellency and prances aoout
aa nimble as "Yallow Blossom" on
"Rnl!t" At t.h nnrcria mnatr an

Longstreet in bis Georgia Scenes.
This dashing Marat knows that
the advocacy of Hill is opposition
to Cleveland, and be has the
affrontary to assume the champion
ship of one in order to defeat the
other. Democrats will not be de
ceived even by the maneuvers of
so skillful a tactician.
The difficulty with Mr. Halstead
is to be found in tbe fact that he
belongs to a party whose acts have
been repudiated by the people,
and its only hope lies in producing
discord in the ranks of the De
mocracy, and in the nomination of
a Republican candidate of such
acknowledged statesmanship and
magnetic influence as to make
amends for tbe unoopularitv of his
j He is fighting against terrible
odds and he will be worthy the

i The Democracy is nolid. The
tate elections nave vindicated its
policy, and its success in 1892 is
not dependent upon the popularity
of its candidate. Cleveland is the
choice of tbe National Democracy ;
Hill appears to be the favorite of
the Democratic party in the State
ot New York. Either of them can
be elected if nominated by tbe
National Democratic Convention;
neither of them is necessary to
Democratic succcbs. The flag will

Editor Journal: In the
Journal of the 11th inst. I notice
an extensive letter from C. Thomp
son, Richlands, in which be refers
Now, Mr. Editor, as he has know
ingly misrepresented me I shall
ask you to give me space in your
paper to reply. Mr. Thompson
says I am a new comer in this
county, and was stung by au erratic
political bee which well nigh mad
dened me to offer myself for inde
pendent senatorial honors. It is
true that I have only been a resi
dent of Onslow lor tbe past five
years. No one has ever said any
thing to me about offering myself
as an independent candidate for
the Senate, nor any other office.
And I ean truthfally say that 1
never thought oi deing such a thing,
or hinting it to any one. You may
rest assured, my friends, that I
shall never run for any office unless
I receive the nomination. Now,
Mr. Thompson, you may call it a
political bee or anything you
please, with your demagogism;
but when I am called upon to give
my voice or signature I shall al
ways tell the truth.
When I joined the Alliance at
Richlands, Lodge No. 1977, Mr.
F. D. Koonoe was then a member,
and since that Lodge became de
funct, he has been making Alliance
speeches in Jones and Onslow,
which I have seen highly compli
mented in the Journal. Now,
concerning the (unanimous) action
of Richlands Alliance No. 1977, 1
was not present, but heard one of
our reliable Brothers who was
present say that be for one took no
part in the resolutions passed
against Mr. Koonc, and that there
were others present who did not,
though he was not a Koonce man,
he thought they went a little too
Mr. Thompson you must remem
ber that we do not live in a mon
archy, and you its ruler, and when
every one does not do exactly to
suit yon, don't let that tyrannical
spirit of yours drive you to despera
tlon. Bear in mind that Tom
Reed ism will not work well in this
State. Let this be your motto in
the future, especially when you
make an accasasion against a
brother Alliance man and church
member, have brotherly love and
Christianity enough to let it be the
truth. J. A. Taylor.
