'Tho Advertiser charged, after the
meeting of the county convention last
year, that the victory of the illease
forces in the convention was not sig
nificant of any preponderating Illease
sentiment in the county. It. Ia as will
ing this year to admit that the vic
tory of the anti-Tllease forces inl the
convention Monday was not significant
of any considerable change in politi
cal alignment since the last conven

servers of the turn of events in the
((onvention could detect signs of a
(-hanging sentiment in many sections.
The meeting was a comparatively

IN A NUTSHELL
Tom Watson, of Georgia, Briefly Ex.
j ains System of Land Tenure
Adopted by North Carolina.
Tom Watson-there is one'ly one
Tom Watson-is a lawyer and a
mighty good one. But he is a peo
ple's lawyer and is never afraid to
speak out about the evils and failures
in our judicial and legal system.
In the last issue of his paper, The
Jeffersonian, a reader asks him to ex
plan the Torrens system, and he does
so in his usual clear and forceful
nanner. Here is his editorial, which
we hope will make more farmers in
other states resolve that all the south
shall quickly follow North Carolina
in providing this law for the benefit
of its farmers and other citizens.
Toni Watson answers his inquiry as
"The Torrens system in a nutshell,
"The state examines the title, sur
veyi the property, and registers a
clear title, accompanied by the plat;
t cer'lileato is then issued to I he
mwner ard when ihe solls and makes
a deed to the hi yer, he surrenders his
cerii ate to the registrar, who issues
,t new one to the new owner.
You can see at once how this
priness simplifies the transfer of
property, cuts out fees for abstracts
of title, and abolishes lawsuits over
titles and boundary lines.
"Any dispute about the title or the
lines is settled by the state, before
the property is registered.
"This clearing of the titles and the
lines is- done by an oficial examiner,
appointed for that purpose and put
under a bond.
"If any dispute arises, all parties
are notifled and lie case is laid be
fore a court. tIn New York the case
goes at once to the Supreme court).
"When this court passes upon the
questions raised, they are settled for

J. C. Smith Wins Suit to Establish

In the court of common pleas last
week the defendants in the case of
J. C. Smith vs Mrs. Janie A. Smith, et
al, to establish the will of the late D.
C. Smith of Waterloo failed to make
out a satisfactory case in the eyes of
the jury and a verdict was rendered
for the plaintiti, thus setting aside the
will in question.
After considering several minor
cases the court adjourned Thursday
afternoon to meet again Monday morn

Monday being convention (lay, very

terday the court began the case of
Mrs. Nannie L. Tucker, administratrix
of' the estate of Thomas Tucker, vs the
Clinton Cotton Mills. This is a suit
for damages in the sum of $30,000 oc
casioned by the drowning of Thomas
Tucker in the mill pond of the de
fendant company several years ago.
The case has already been tried be
fore and at a recent term of common
pleas court a motion for a non-suit. by
the defendants was upheld by the pre
siding judge. The case was appealed
however, and the supreme court re
mnlnlded the case to the circuit court
to be tried again on its merits. The
case will likely be finished today.

Riddles Old Field School
The Riddles' Old Field school -closed
iriday, May 1st, after having done
fine work under the eflicient teacher,
Miss Maudo Iangston. The children'
all passed on examinations and will
enter higher grades next session. On
coming to our school last fall Miss
Langston found that we needed im
provements. She organized a ladies
improvement Association which has
raised about $50.00. They have bought
new shade', large heater, hyloplate
blackboards, and a library.' They still
have some money and hope to do good
work in the. future. The patrohs and
children love the teacher for her good
work and noble traits of character.
On May 2nd the patrons gave a pic
nic in honor of our teacher. We had a
fine talke from Mr. W. C. Wharton
on education.. He gave us some good
advice which will be made good use
of. The Rev. 13. P. Mitchell took up
the religious side of the question and
handled it well. After this a good
dinner was spread by the ladies, and
was enjoyed by all present.
in the afternoon Col. J. H. Whar
ton made an excellent address. le
outlined the needs and opportunities
of -rural schools and showed us where
some of our noblest men, such as our
noble sheriff and clerk of court and
solicitor, all came from the rural dis
tricts. Col. Wharton is a grand old
mean and we hope for him many more
years of usefulness and pleasure. We
hope to have him with us again.
