Gen. Carr's canvass in five acts


Item Information help

  • Description
    Accusations fly after F. M. Simmons defeats Julian S. Carr in his run for U.S. Senate. At a speech in Mt. Holly, Carr "calls the Democratic organization a machine, and insinuates that it is guilty of fraud", since, after Carr asked the Populists for their support in the Democratic primary, the Democratic party notified them that "this is a Democratic year..." and "Pops and Republicans could not select a Democratic senator." Carr's friends from Asheville ("one an ex-Gideonite"), J. R. Webster, J. Crawford Biggs, and C. N. Vance go on the attack and "quote from Butler's Caucasian and retail all of Butler's stale and exploded slanders of Mr. Simmons".
