ICeoent event In North Carolina ar
too glaring violation of fundamental
principle of Amorlcnn government to be
ignored or paNod with a caaual criti
cism. Bundry person acting "without any
authority of law or of ruaeon have over,
thrown existing local government,
driven the former official from their
office, banished memcroue person both
white and oolored from the' nouk try on
pain of death and killed and wounded
many people In the execution of thoeo
peculiar proceeaea.
The excuse and justification of these
act I that the white people of North
Carolina will not put up with "nigger
government". Whlta peoiile who act
with the negroc are classed aa a part of
"nigger government". The expressed
determinat ion I that there shall be a
white man' government In the south
and the great bulk of white public opin
ion appcura to be decidedly In favor of
resorting to any kind of revolutionary
or evon.bloody methods in order to en
force the idea that white men only slmll
exercise practical right. J ending clergy
men lu Wilmington and other North
(tiroll n a cities bave publicly given
thank from their puliilta for the result
acbeived there through blood and vio
lence. '
The starting point of the preuut
trouble wa In 181)1 when the v.hlte re

populist party grew strong euough by
combining with the re.nnaut of the re
publican parly to drive the old ring
from tower, to send Murlon llutler to
the Culled States senate and to beulu a
new practical era iu tha old north stale.
In 1HU0 the combined populist arid re
publican force won another vlctorly
electing astute tli krt composed partly
of republican and partly of populist.
