Some Truths Concerning That Meeting?
Captain Hogers' .Speech.
According to an appointment pre?
viously made, Mayor S. E. Jones, ac?
companied by County Chairman M. M.
Rogers, addressed a meeting of the
votors of Bonsack Monday night at the
schoolhouse at that place. Upon arriv?
ing in Bonsack tho gentlemen from Roa
nokn found that services wero about to
be conducted in the Baptist Church
there by the pastor, Rev. W. W. Hamil?
ton, and a pleasant understanding was
reached by them that they should first
listen to the minister In the church, if
he would afterwatd como to the school
house and listen to the machine De?
mocracy .doctrine as laid down by Roa
noke's worthy orators.
Mayor Jones was tho first speaker on
the programme, and made an in?
teresting little talk to the voters of
Bonsack, which, to use the expression
of some who were there, "didn't carry
The interesting feature of the occa?
sion was the rambling speech mado by
Capt. Mort. M. Rogers, county chairman
of the Damocratlc party. The worthy
captain had learned that there was a
strong Prohibition element at Bonsack,
which the machine would havo to com?
bat If they wished to carry the
precinct for the combine ticket, so he
started off by saying that McCartney
was not tho man he wanted o i tho
Democratic ticket, but that ho was
favorable to tho nomination of Haw?
kins. Men who heard him, and who
would ecorn to misrepresent a fact, con?
sidered his speech as a straightout
apology for Andrew McCartney being on
tho ticket, which was mado in order to
catch the Prohibition vote for at least a
part of tho ticket he advocated.
He utated that he was not a local
optionist, but favored Prohibition, but
that ho had dono more than any other
one man toward giving the people of the
county local option and that he was
largely Instrumental in the election of
Mr. Moftltt to the county judgship.
The captain also said that he was
serving his last term as county chair?
man, as ho did not propoao to bo under
tho lash any longor. Ho would not
accept tho chairmanship again, as there
was no pay in It.
