THE CAROLINA WATCHMAN.
WM. H. STEWART, Ed. and Pub. Published Every Wednesday at ISO West Innles Street Subecriptlon Price $1 per year strictly cash In advance Entered as second-class matter Jan. 19th. 1905, at the poet office at Salis bury, N. C., under the act of Gonsress of March 3rd, 1997. Salisbury, N. C., April 4th, 1900. The demagogue and flaterer is abroad in the laud, and with the energy of a hungry wolf, seeketh office. The scandal monger most to be feared is the fellow who is kept continually on the defensive and endeavors to hide himself by pointing, directly, or by inuendo, to some one else. A special from Washington to the Charlotte Observer says the appropriation for the Salisbury public building is included m an omnibus bill now before the Sen ate and that it is very likely to pass. Coming some. The Presbyterian manse, so long occupied by the late Rev. Rumple, is now the home of his successor, Rev. J. H. Grey. May he stay as long, do as much good and enjoy the esteem of all to the same ex tent, or greater, as did his worthy predecessor. Please take note. While the Salisbury public building bill is being worked through the Senate by Senator Overman, E. Spencer Blackburn is preparing for trial at Greensboro for violating the law. His trial beginning on the 17th instant. Statesville has the true grit and, though somewhat disfigured by the fire of last week, she will soon blossum forth with the flow ers of the lovely springtime. While we all extend sympathy in her losses, there is no town in the State that can more becomingly wear modern raiment. We add several announcements to our list of candidates this week. They are C.T.Bernhardt, fortreas urer; Geo. B. Wetmore, of Wood leaf, for register of deeds, and Jas. H. Horah, for the State Senate. Mr. Bernhardt has been county commissioner for a number of years and has made a very good record. Mr. Wetmore is an edu cator and lawyer and one of the most capable and worthy Demo crats in the county, and Mr. Horah is man of splendid ability, he has served the party well and deserves well of it. We also have the announcements of W. D. Pethel, for Representative; Louis D. Peeler, for Commissioner ;J. M. Julian, Representative, and J. H. Krider, for sheriff. Mr. Pethel iB a citizen of Spencer, is capable and will represent the people if elected; Mr. Peeler, of Rockwell, is a young man of good business qualifications and comes from a section of the county where a commissioner is needed; Mr. Julian is the editor of our contem porary and his record as a Demo crat and supporter of A. H. Boy den, the corrupt political boss of . Rowan, is well known. Those who want cliques, rings and tyran ical bossism to be maintained in good old Rowan will vote accord ingly. Mr. Krider served the Democracy for long years, has been and is now a deputy sheriff and county jailer. Mr. Krider is a very clever gentleman and will make a strong race. Most of the offices are now sought by candidates of all kinds and no one should find it difficult to make a selection to suit his own particular ideas. There is one thing, however, that might be said,.and that is, if we do not ob tain suitable officers for the com ing terms, it will be the people’s own fault. Read our special subscription j propositions. ‘ Fortunately no one believes the reports concerning the marvelous new discovery of gold bearing veins at Gold Hill iu this county, or else the entire county would be turned into a mining camp within a few days.. There is no one, not even a stockholder in the company, who wishes greater success to any and every enterprise in the county, or that may come here, than does the editor of The Watchman, but we know, and every informed man knows, that such yarns are noth ing short of curbstone buncombe, and that they are calculated to do the county great harm in the long run. C.- C. Basden, one of the most successful farmers of Onslow coun ty. was in the city Tuesday to dis pose of some meat he had raised. Mr. Basden’s success as a farmer can be estimated from what he did on a two horse farm last year. He cleared $2,400 on an average two horse farm and raised 8,000 lbs. of pork—Kingston Free Press. Farmers in the country report labor scarce at high prices and that the question is becoming se rious indeed. A good farmer from the Eastern section of the county said to us Saturday that day la borers could not be gotten for less than $1 per day and board. Far mers are certainly handicapped under snch conditions, and it does seem that our State will have to establish an immigration bureau for their protection.—Salisbury Post. r n i i i r _ XL UlltJ Wttgt) WULJ1WLB UL XLUWnLl do not want to be crowded out of their positions by a horde of dagos or Chinese coolies, who will work for one-fourth the present wage, they had better be very careful who they send to the next legis lature.
