The DURHAM RECORDER.
Semi-Weekly. EVERY TUESDAY AND FRIDAY. By ZEB. P. COUNCIL. ESTABLISHED 1820. Entered as second class matter August B, 1903, at the postofflce at Durham, N. C. , under the act of Congress of March f. 187 Subscription Rates : One year fi-oo U mouths 50 cents Three months 25 cents Rates for advertising made known on application DURHAM, N. C, May 31, 1907. All railroads of any import ance in the state that are af fected by the new rate are kick ing, but the Southern will get all the blame because it was first to start the ball to rolling. From reports being published in many of the papers of the State it appears that some of the State officers are not going to stand for re-election, which will strengthen the precedent that they should only serve two terms For a long time efforts have been made to get Speaker Can non to come to North Carolina, and as he does appear to be proud of the fact that he is native of the state we suppose he came so that he woulb be let alone. We regret that Messrs. Ship man and Sherrill are candidates for the same position, lor we would like to vote for them both Either would fill the position of Lalor Commissioner w ith credit. being well qualified for the po sition. While the merchants of Dur ham are fighting for cheaper freight rates-, which they should have, we see no reasons why they should not do something about the price of telephones, which will now cost business houses $4 per month and resi dences $2.50. The Inter-State Telephone Company of this city are going up another notch in the rates. The Bell telephone people may be robbers and all that, but one thing is certain, when they were here doing business the Inter State Company charged only a little more than half what they are now charging. The directors claim that they are not making any money, but do not explain how it was when they were char ging such low prices while the Bell Company were doing busi ness here. In some of our exchanges, notably the Lexington Dispatch and Statesville Landmark, they , ora Ao'vmXnrr iUa irrantn t.(Tr.t: should be made to induce people to patronize home merchants, People should patronize people of the home town whenever they get what they want, but our ex-1 perienceis that the home mtr-1 his orthtrn neighbor as a dam chant lays where he can get it J yankee.

For Labor Commissioner. Following the announcement that Mr. II. B. Varner would not be a candidate for re-election to the office of Commissioner of Labor and Printing, two candi dates have announced that they are in the race for the position, namely, Meters. John U. Sher rill, of the Concord Times, and Etii n. U tm !; Mr. Varner's assistant for . some time. Following is from the Concord Tribune of May 27th: It is announced that Henry B. Varner will not be a candidate for the nomination for Commis sioner of Labor and Printing, and we take this time and oppor tunity to suggest that the proper thing to do is to nominate and elect John B. Sherrill to that of- Lfice. It has been a long time, if ever, that Carrabus has had a representation onlthe State ticket and this is our opportunity, for we can nominate and elect the Concord editor. The State could be searched from border to bor der and a better equipped man for this place could not be found. He has the business qualities de manded by the office and would be a pleasing representative of the publishers and newspaper craft. While more might be said, this is sufficient to ask the publishers of the State to take up the suggestion and nominate Sherrill. Following is from Mr. Ship man s announcement that he is in the race for the position: Mr. Varner announces that he will not stand for re-election as Commissioner of Labor and Printing, and I have decided to become a candidate for the place, subject of the action of the Democratic State Convention. As you are doubtless aware, I have already spent nearly three years' time in familiarizing my self with the work of the depart ment, and there are no duties connected with any feature of the same that I do not feel per fectly competent of performing to the best interest of the people of the State. I have gone to the expense of moving my family to Raleigh and am devoting my en tire time to the work. With regard to the suggestion of the Concord Tribune that Mr. John B. Sherrill, proprietor "and editor of The Concord Times, be nominated and elected Com missioner of Labor and Printing, for which Mr. Varner will not be a candidate again, it is to be said that Mr. Sherrill is thoroughly qualified to discharge the duties of the office and if he wants should have it.

' ." Yet still the world was kind. A wag on came creaklug ajt bis heels, slowly overhauling him and unexpectedly stopping when It did so. It was green mountains high with country vege tables smelling notably !n the clean night air, and with this sweet whiff of home and the past there came a hearty, elderly voice evidently hailing Tom. . ' "Now, then, young man, If you want a lift. Joomp oop!" Tom was not sure what he wanted, but his feet were sore, the voice liked him, and up he Jumped. And between Sarkness and dawn the quiet foot of the sleeping hill and the half awaken ed but already noisy purlieus of Tot tenham Court road the lucky, attrac tive fellow made another friend. , The wagoner was a red faced, red whiskered, freckle handed fellow, with a genial, broad, communicative tongue. Jonathan Kutterfleld was his name, and he was a Vorfcshireman only re cently come south, as he said, with a eigh which left him silent Whereup on Tom became communicative In his turn and remarked that he, too. medi tated a move to India. "There's the good ship Jean advertis ed to sail on Monday, and I'm on my way to the office to see If they've a bunk left If there Isn't I shall go on to the docks and try my luck on the ship herself. I might work my pas sage out If uot I'll stow away." "You're that anxious to leave old Englandr "I am anxious to make my way." "Ah, well!" sighed the wagoner. "I've got a lad o' my own as far away as you are going. He writes u canny letters, but dear knows what we'd give to see him back!" But there was no end to the good will of the Yorkshireman. who not on ly Insisted on paying for hot coffee at an early stall, but flatly refused to go about his business until Tom promised to accompany him to breakfast at Us conclusion. Tom's heart rose steadily with the sun and was singing with brave re solve when at length the wagoner re turned. "I doubt I've lieen a long time," said Butterfietd. "It I very near 6 o'clock." "Ten past" said Tom, whipping out the golden nucleus of his future for tunes, which be had even then been bugging in his pocket. Tom tried to back out of the break fast, tmt it failed. He tried again as they drove past Fetter lane he could pay his way in noils buildings now but this time the wagoner whipped up his horse and refused to listen. 'Xo, no, said be; "a promise Is a promise, and I warrant they'll be pron 1 to see you." "You mean your wife aiid faml'yl" said Tom. "Nay." said ButternVId, "I doubt you'll not we them there." "Not at your bouse?" cried Tom. "It Isn't mine," confessed the other. "It's my wife's brother's. He drives a hackney coach, and I use bis stable every other morning. Me an' my mis sus live out at Ik'ttdon, end I come In three nights a week." "But you mustn't sad iio these peo ple with me. Let uie got down at once." "Mustn't Vi" chuckled the wagoner. "I'll take the blame, then.

"Jonathan told me you'd a gold re peater."

"Many an hour ago. It's 5 o'clock." "Five!" "And after." Tom burst Into apologies, In the midst of which the woman put on a shawl and went out He was still standing Irresolute In his socks, daxed by his long sleep, when there came a rattle of wheels outside, and In rushed Jim with his whip and an evening newspaper. "Glad to find you sUil here,, sir J" cried he. "I want somebody as can read to rea me a slice out of this 'ere Globe. It's awful,, sirawful! The wery gen'lemnn I drove last night!

It seems, his name Is, or, rather, was!" "Was? "He's dead." "Dead!" "Stone dead murdered by a man I saw as close as I see you now. but never looked twice at! It's all In the Globe, they tell me.

The hackney coachman bad drawn a chair to the table, planted his elbows In the middle of the printed cotton cloth ami his hot. flushed face between his coarse, stroug hands. Tom sat down at the other end. He found the paragraph, ran bis eye from headline to finish and then read It slowly aloud: SHOCKING StUUDER AT HAMP 8TEAU.
