Two splendid speeches were
made at the court-house, in the
interest of the Democratic party,
last Monday forenoon, the first
by Hon. Rollin Hurt, the second
by Hon. W. J.Price, of Danville.
Both gentlemen stirred the De
mocracy, as they landed blow
after blow upon the present ad
ministration. Mr. Hurt, before
begining his speech, read Wood
row Wilson's last appeal to the
American people in a forceful
manner. It is a great paper and
was received with cheers. At
the conclusion of his very con
vincing address, Mr. Hurt intro
duced Mr. Price, who is a polish
ed gentleman, and who delivered
a very telling speech, uging the
people who are disirous of having
the burdens lifted from their
shoulders to vote for Wilson and
Marshall, giving many potent
reasons why neither Taft nor
Roosevelt should be supported.
His speech was scholarly, con
taining nothing but truths, and
was highly appreciated.
