CONSERVATIVE DEMOCRATS SAY THEY WANT AND NEED A LEAD ER BUT THEY DO NOT WANT HEARST. A THOUSAND THANKS , TO CUTICURA REMEDIES' IMPRESSIONS OF THE SOUTHLAND (By Mrs. Cr Sutton.) Mrs. Charles Sutton, of this city, now sojourning In the South, writes the Palladium an Interesting letter de scriptions of conditions and of the country. She writes from Greensboro, N. C, but tells of life in various other places, visited on the way to Greens boro. Her letter follows: In Knoxville one sees the Southern negro in all his laziness on every cor ner. Almost every conveyance was driven by a negro. But I say an "Uncle Tom," a grand old negro I know, although he did not speak a word In my presence. We were seated at breakfast In a restaur ant direclty opposite the depot and I could but remark the deliberate slou ching movements of the negros out Blde as they turned their horses a bout to wait for passengers or as they strolled aimlessly up and down the streets. A wholesale grocers wagon stopped before tho cafe and an old but .straight negro came In carrying an or der of goods. In spite , of his load he removed his hat at the door and while the proprietor Inspected his order "Uncle Tom" stood " with hat before him, clasping the brim in either hand, his head bowed respectfully. As the orders were given not a word did he speak, only a bow to acknowledge them. As he went out I found I had been sitting almost breathlessly watching him and trying to imagine what his life had been "fo de wah.M One can tell an old slave by the, to me pathetic air of mute submission and obedlance to the white people Hats off to tho "Uncle Tom's" and "Aunt Lizas" whose passing this gen eration will witness! Yesterday we drove to the various cemeteries In Greensboro and the most interesting to me was the negro cemetery. On all the older stones I found the same uncertainey of age. The date of death is given there, "ag ed about eighty years" sometimes old er. My sister's cook is Aunt Nancy. She was owned by a family In North Car olina for whose memory she has the profoundest respect. Her "old Massa an Missus" are dead but "man white chlllen" are grown and have families of their own. She doesn't have any idea how old she is. Her stories of slave times are thrilling and her sup ply of ancient "Mamy" tales are never ending. I hope to get her "Tar Baby" in her own style and wording before I leave , Aunt Nancy was never separated from her mother because her mother had J an ugly scar extending clear around her waist which she had received dur In one ot the frequent whippings and which spoiled her sale, while Aunt Nancy was not for sale, as I can read ily believe she was Invaluable then as She is now. Her mother was put up the disgusting "examination" she was always left. The pine woods has a wonderful fas cination for one who is not accustom ed to it. The trees are without limbs on the trunks to within ten or fifteen feet of the top and grow to great heighth and close together. The odor is delightful as one walks along on the carpet of needles which deadens the sound of the foot-fall and the whispering and soft mumuring of the breeze In the tops Is very soothing and restful. After night the pine woods looks as black as black can be and is an unbroken gloom as no staggling ray of light can be seen. The roses of North Carolina are beautiful, growing larger and more beautiful than any I have ever seen. Think of growing the fine varities we regard at home as hot house roses, in ones yard. The earlier varieties of cherries were ripe, two weeks ago and straw berries are past their prime, selling at ten and fifteen cents. Blackberries grow wild everywhere in great abun dance and are fine' ones. Corresponding to our dandoline the farmers and gardners here have to fight the wild onion. I have seen whole fields covered thickly with them, they grow everywhere. It is al most an impossibility to get good milk, cream and butter a,t this time of year if the cows are allowed to be on pas ture. In a few weeks the wild onions dies down and from then on until next spring it will be a bother no more I never saw so many mules or knew there were so many. After we left Kentucky on the way here we saw practically no horses. But mules were to be seen all the way. Not at work, they were hitched up, to be sure and looked like they had been at work, but it is a fact that I saw no person or animal at work on the entire jour ney here. They all, man and beast, stopped to stare at the train. I saw a woman in a field on a mountain side behind a plow to which there was a "team" or yoke rather of oxen. The field sloped at a dizzy an gle and looked as barren as the face of a rock, but she had It half plowed. A long way above her was perched a funny little cabin with peach and ap ple trees in bloom around it Through the uncleared tangle to the north of the cabin, higher yet up the mountain came a man with a mountain wagon loaded with wood to which a yoke of oxen were hitched. I waited to see the whole outfit come tumbling down into the river, for it seemed to me nothing but a fly could walk there and not fall. But it did not come so I looked closer for a reason. The man had a great tree tied on behind which with the efforts of the well trained oxen, overcame gravity and they pro- dow,n the mountain. Still I would like to knov now tney got there in their own , time right side up, for of course they like everything else stopped to see us go gliding through the valley below. I wished I might view the scene from his view point, for there the mountains were very high and Che beautiful French Broad river runs through the valley and the Southern Railway follows its course for miles. Two miles east of Ashville, N. C. is a station called Biltmore, where there is a model village just outside the entrance lodge to the great Bilt more estate. This vast estate Is owned by Mr. George W. Vanderbilt and is the finest country place In America and there are few in the world as elegant. He owns 100,000 acres there in the mountains including Mount Pisgah, which is 15,000 feet high. Biltmore House cost three mil lion dollars and was five years In building. The chateau itself cannot be seen from the train, but we saw the elegant entrance lodge and Ihe stone church of Biltmore. The little town is the home of the people of the estate, the offices of it are there and the church rectory, postofflce and the car house in which Mr. Vanderbilt's private car is kept, make up the town, all of which Mr. Vanderbilt owns.

Scott's Emulsion is "the easy oil" easy to take, easy in action. Its use insures deliverance from the griping and nau seating sensation peculiar to the raw oil. Nobody who has any regard for their stomach thinks of taking cod liver oil in the old way when Scott's Emulsion is to be had. It is equally certain that no one having a regard for their health will accept a cheap emulsion or alco holic substitute for Scott's Emulsion. Itfulfills ev ery mission of cod liver oil and more. .

The people are demanding that the county commissioners take action at once against the company by the rigid enforcement of many provis ions as set out in the franchise, especi ally that provision which provides that after operatng the road two years that no single rate shall be less than 5 cents between any points and the general rate must be based and not exceed one and two-thirds cents per mile through Wayne county. The prese nutnwarranted rate recently es tablished varies from one and two thirds to three cents per mile. The people recognize the advantage of the interurban service, but demand that they be protected in their rights." Publishers' Press Washington, May 25. William R. Hearst is reaching out for control of the machinery of the Democratic par ty. According to the information that has come to Democrats he does not expect to gain complete control this year, but he does expect so to tighten his grasp as to enable him to take supreme command in 1908. The drift of the talk among Democrats in Con gress is that the party is looking for a leader, but it does not want one of the Hearst type. It is admitted that Hearst has the whip-hand now. The national congressional campaign com mittee is his, and from all accounts he is quietly building up organizatons in many States.. His friends on the congressional campaign committee re sent the action of National Chairman Taggart in appointing a committee that is to assist the congressional com mittee. The Hearst people feel that the national chairman should have kept hands off. It may turn out that the congressional committee will re fuse to accept advice from the com mittee Mr. Taggart has named. Small Hope of Success. On the whole the outlook for the Democratic party is not encouraging to the representatives of that party in Congress. They frankly admit this Recently there has been a good deal of talk to the effect that the party might be able to carry the next House of Representatives, but in private, the Democrats in Congress say there is small hope of any such success. They do not see how the party can hope to succeed in congressional elections, in State electiona or in a national elec- ton until it finds the right leader; and they have about despared of finding the kind of leader needed. The party as represented in Congress is against Hearst. John Sharp Williams, the minority leader in the House, if re ports be trut, has been demanding roll calls day by day for no other pur pose than to prove, if it every becomes necessary, that Hearst seldom perfor- mes nis auues as a memoer oi me House. Making Headway. And yet Democratic Senators and Representatives are willing to admit that Hearst is making headway. His I strength they say is drawn from two or three sources. He is the favorite of the ultraradical Democrats every where the members of the party who tend toward socialism and various other isms. Recently an orginization was established here known as the 'The People's Sovereignty League. It has behind it plenty of money. Its hobby is the initiative and referen dum. Referendum leagues, It is an nounced, are to be organized through out the country within the next two years. Hearst is the favorite of this organization. The Hearst bomers declare, too, that their man will reap the benefit of the entrance of organized labor in to politics If an entrance is made, and benefit come to any person. It is the expectation and hope of the Hearstites that organized labor will give its fav orite a powerful lift if he does decide to be a canddate.

The Salvation Wail. Lieut Col. Margetts is not Powhat an, but he has a war path just the" same, and Richmond is in its track for May 30th. Other warpaths converge here on the same date, one on the track of the G. R. & I. and one on the Pennsylvania track. Yet the Salva tionists do not call it a track meet. How can we keep track of these technical terms, anyway? jr-. Cmfo orp., Hoi Pre ALF0RD'S DRUG STORE. Prttcription Promptly Filled. Cor. 9th and Main.
