SENTIMENT AGANST ELECTO
Efiort to Carry tbe State for Bryan

Journal Bureau, i
Baleigh, N. C, Septemt)er 12.
There was considerable talk here today
abont an alleged statement made by Sen-
atoV Butler that McKinley would carry
North Carolina. Of course there are not
a few people who believe and declare that
Butler, does not desire that Bryan shall
catty North Carolina. But strenuous
tTenlflla of this have for weeks been made
jl. ip, Patterson, of the Populist State
tJ'iiiLttee, says the Populists will vote
just as their committee and their party di
rects; that is, they will vote for the Mc
Kinley men, the Republican State nomi
nees, while Republicans will vote for
Bryan men, the Populist nominees. Pat
terson would not say so in as many words
but it is quite easy to see he believes. Sen
ator Butler came out of the "small tnd
of the horn" in the fusion deal or contract
made !a?t Thursday. Populists now go
so- far as to admit this, but say Butler
will now try some other tack. Commit
teeman Patterson' says tbat though Butler
may deny that there is fusion, yet there
is fusion as lar as it goes. It does not go
as far as he would like it to go, but I
don't think that it will go any further.
Senator Pritchard. I suppose, is opposed
to Russell's coming down. He will cer
tainly not engage in any movement of that
Otho Wilson, Populist' leader, says that
the greatest efforts will be made to carry
the State for Bryan and Watson. It is
quite openly said that tbe Populists will
try to fgrce Watson on the Democrats.
It is unqtrioned that there is a growing
sentiment against electoral fusion, and
on the part of Democrats who at one time
favored it A committeeman in his
newspaper declares against it. The Pop'
ulists in tlieir papers and privately never
lnse an opportunity to jeer at the Demo
crats and say they have an absolute lack
of confidence in them. These arrogant
Populists may as well know that Demo
crats leturh that lack of confidence, and
even iu a diminished form.

The Republicans expected to hoist
their big campaign banner at headquar
tors yesterday, but the affair is postponed
until Monday. Chairman Holton says
he did not know until yesterday -that
the banner was the gift of a Democrat.
H. L. Qrsnt, of the committee, makes
the statement that a Democrat is the
The tement that there is .a secret
understanding between the Populists and
Republicans as to the perfection of f u
sion on their State ticket, is confirmed in
two or three ways. Strange things in
this line are apt to occur at any time.
It is said by some of Oliver H. Dock
try's frieDds that he will be pressed for
U. S. Senator. It wou'd be interesting
to kuow what backing he has.
At the time one of the Populists who
vas put on the list of the committee on
receptiorH)f Bryan received his notifica
ti.tn to tpu tffect, he was on trial in a
western county for taking goods from an
Alliance $tore, of which 'he was in charge,
to his owa house. AlliaDcemen brought
the snit. - They proved against him that
he bftd marjj.td goods 30 per cent, higher
than cos It is said that this Populist is
a good deal more ot a Republican than a
Mention was made that L. C. Caldwell,
of Statesvi lie, the last accession to the
Populist party, was an aspirant lor At
torney General. He says thi3 is incorrect.
Evidently the Populists know they were
going to endorse Waleer, Republican, for
IT. L. Giant of the Republican com
mittee, says the "slump" of the silver vote
in this State will beat anything seen in this
State since the Greeley campaign of 1882.
He declares "there is no bottom to this
silver coinage craze." Grant says he "will
give the devil his due," and that he does
not believe the Populists offered to divide
electors with the Republicans. Holton
says Populists did make the offer. Grant
was in favor of fusion all tbe way
through, so as to brius; out the full vote.
Butler said yesterday ;hat there would
'"probably" be a Populut Congresional
nominee in each district, and that if the
Republicans support any Populist nom
ioee forJJongress it will be because Pop
uiists support Republicans for county
offices. Butler says he is determined on
two things that the Democrats shall not
get the state administration or control the
legislature. He savs he is equally deter
mined that toe State shall not be carried
for McKinley and he adds '-Whatever

How It Looks.
Washington, IX C. The result of
the Maine election has, in common, put
tbo Democratic party, not the Populists,
in a mighty interesting fix. It is believed
that tbe result was anticipated by Senator
Gorman, Senator Jones and the 3i nators
fiom the West, who are now in the city,
and that there actually was a council ex
traordinary en the more extraordinary
situation at the capital.
It was generally supposed that the de
feat of Mr. Sewall in Maine, if it were
disastrous, would chauge the minds ol
the Democratic managers as to the ad
visability of keeping him on the ticket,
and it was shrewdly guessed that this
very thing was discussed at the caucus of
Chairman Jones and the ex-Republicans
which was held in tbe catacombs of the
Tbe interest in the Maine election was
not altogether confined to tbe official
politicians. Washington ians, Rapubli
cans and Democrats and populists,
waited with considerable curosity all day
(HI tha 'bulletins came out telling- the
story of tbe battle.
There were no surprises in it, at least
they all said so. ' The Democrats were
ready to admit that Maine was a hide
bound, rock-bound, rock ribbed Republi
can State, and that a majority of some
and any kind was to be expected.
The opinion of tbe Democrats was coin
cided in by Senator Teller who, by the
way, used to rejoice with a great rejoice
ment ip former years when Maine beat
tbe band in the race for the banner Re
publican State. Mr. Teller was not en
thusiastic. He was calm, dispassionate
and brutally frank as to Joe Manley. He
spoke of him as Joe.
"Oh," said Mr. Teller, "Joe Manly
didn't deceive anybody when he put the
majority down at 20,000. He knew it
would be larger, so that he could say to
the country tbat while he expected a
triumph, he bad no idea'that there would
have been such an avalanche."
Mr. Teller does not regard fhe Maine
election as at all significant. Hot do the
other magnates at Democratic head
quarters. Up at Republican headquarters, things
were slightly different. They were not
only rejoiced, but amazed by the size of
the majority, which grew and grew as the
night advanced Uutil at last the 50,0001
mark bad been reached. Tbe secretaries
keeping tbe late watch were unanimous
that it not only meant a grand Republican
victory but a humiliating Democratic de
feat. It was th3 battlefield for Sewall, as he
can carry no other State, and it was tbe
State in which the Democrats claimed
that there was a constant howl for silver
literature and the daily and nightly or
ganization of free silver clubs. Tbe latest
unofficial reports from Democratic bead
quarters indicated that there were clubs
of that kind at every cross-roads in the
Pine Tree State.
