of March Sid, 1897.
Salisbury, N. C., April 20, 1909.
Since January 1st, 1009, there is
no lawful reason why any onei
should be found drunk in or about
Salisbury, there is likewise no
reason why the talk of bar-rooms
and blind tigers should be such a
conspicuous subject of conversa
tion. If by popular vote, it had
been decided that no more cotton
cloth was to be made in the state,
under similar penalties as those
narrated in the prohibition meas
ure, we take it that the mills
would have closed and that the
law w'ould have been obeyed with
out question and the manufacture
of Buch goods would have ceased ;
there would have been no further
controversy on tne suoject. mu
not so with the whiskey men, in
stead of submitting to the will of
a great majority of our citizens
and the legislative enactment,
they, being accustomed to the
violation of all lawB that exist for
the regulation of their traffic and
the protection of society, have set
about to deliberately violate the
prohibition act. They act as
though they were above the law of
the land and look upon the ex
pressed will of the people with
contempt. At least, judging by
conditions here, such an assertion
does not miss the mark very far.
For instance, there seems to be as
many drunks on the streets here
now as were to be found before the
1st of January, (of course the an
ti-prohibitionists are all ready to
say I told you such would be the
case,) and a V6ry few less saloons.
Just how many places have United
States license to sell whiskey,
they have a few bottles of ginger
ale and Coca-cola in their show
windows, have screens up at the
doors and windows, pay rent en
tirely out of proportion to the
profits possible for a soft drink
stand, and employ from one to
four clerks, some of whom are reg
ular drink-mixing bar clerks.
Such are the facts ou the surface,
to be seen by the most superficial
observer, unless he is a member
F (lio Qalickni'i? 1 ion fnrnn
Such an array of facts cannot
fail to impress any one with the
fact that these places cannot ex
ist, cannot pay such rents, nor
employ the clerical force they do,
on the pretext that only a few bot
tles of soda-water and “ni” beer
are the only articles which they
have for sale.
Now, as to why these exist, we
assume, the following reasons to
be correct: The parties conduct
ing these places have something
more than soft drinks for sale,
judging by the facts set forth
above this tin-named article is
whiskey or beer. They are in the
business for the money to be made
out of it, and finally because the
auth rities are making no effort
to stop them. The responsibility
of apprehending and bringing such
violators of the law to justice is,
primarily, on the shoulders of the
mayor, the chief of police and his
officers. These men know, as well
as others, that violations of the
prohibition law are being prac
ticed, yet they are, so far as ap
pearances are concered, making
no effort to perform their sworn
duty in this particular. In short
it seems as though they are really
winking at the violations and con
Benting tnereto. We nave been
told, or rather it is of common re
port, that the officers frequent
these places, that they do not
make arrests because the mayor
claims he has no authority in the
premises and that the officer who
dares to do his duty will soon find
himself off the force. Hence,
with the town and county govern
ments aiding and abetting these
violations, both directly and in
directly, regardless of the fact
that a large majority of the coun
ty’s citizens voted to have these
institutions removed, they remain
contrrry to the law, contrary to
the public will, and if they are to
be brought to justice and their
depredations are to be stopped, it
will and does devolve upon the
good j lawabiding citizins to get to
gether on the subject and devise
ways aDd means for so doing.
Is it not a terribly outrageous
state of affairs that makes it nec
essary for the citizens of a com
munity to contend with their own
government for the enforcement
of law?
We shall hope for better condi
tions after the inauguration of our
new city officials.
We had three articles from cor
respondents at Gold Hill last week
they all contained items of inter
est to the geuoral public and of
particular interests to the good
people of Gold Hill. It gives us
pleasure to print such items and
we are under obligations to the
gentlemen who have been so kind
as to send them in. Gold Hill
has been unusually well cared for
in this particular during the last
year or so. Few matters of any
consequence to the place, if any,
have been omitted from our col
umns. We have a spleudid regu
lar correspondent there and we
always make an effort to Bf-e that
his items are printed. We have
also enjoyed a good patronage at
Gold Hill and on the routes going
thereout from. This patronage by
the good people of that place is
greatly appreciated and we hope
for its continuance. Now is the
time to re-new your subscription.
No Encouragement for Little Selfishness
Acts, but Honesty in Politics,
Party regularity is an excellent
thing when the party is what it
ought to be. It is fine to see a
man stand by his party, his lodge
or his church when he can do so
and keep his conscience. But
there come times when he must
turn sadly away from the organi
zation that has heretofore com
manded his allegiance, and de
clare his independence. We have
just had a striking example of this
in the recent contest before the
primaries in Raleigh . The party
in power had become corrupt.
The affairs of the city were shame
fully] mismanaged. The public
revenues were waisted in salaries
and in various forms of graft.
The sturdy citizenship, after a
period of amazing patience and
forbearance, arose in their might
and swept the field. They were
in a sense “bolters,” but the time
had come to bolt. Nothing else,
under the circumstances, could
have been done. The honorable
and the manly thing to do was
precisely what the good citizens
did, and the old officials were in
gloriously defeated. fn former
days party regularity was a name
to conjure by. The lash of the
boss rang loud and clear, and in
self-defense good men were forced
to swallow the pills that they need
not and will not swallow under
the new and better dispensation.
The colored vote, usually on the
side of the vicious and corrupt, is
no longer a menace, and men are
free to consult their own con
sciences rather than the political
exigences of the time. A bolter
who bolts for a good cause and be
cause he will not endorse by his
vote a bad or incompetent candi
date is a benefactor to his country
and not a renegade. The old time
party boss lost his power when the
amendment to the constitution
that disfranchised the colored vot
er was ratified by the people. The
South has suffered more, perhaps,
than any other section of our coun
try because of our peculiar politi
cal conditions with which we had
to deal. But the time has come at
last when a man need no longer
vote for a candidate he knows to
be corrupt because he belongs to
his party. Under the new condi
tions, party loyalty can be as
strong and true as ever; but party
slavery is a thing of the past.—

Valuable Cow Dead,
Pedo’s Estella, the champion

Senator Stone Will Attack Certain Features
ot This Taritf Measure.
Opposition to the provisions of
the Payne bill amending the act
to provide revenues for the Philip
pine,Islands has become general
on the part of Democratic sena
tors, and attacks upon it are an
ticipated by the Senate committee
on finance. On that account this
section,has been laid aside to be
considered by the full committee.
Senator Stone, of Missouri, in
tends to try to strike out the
Payne bill Section 5, providing
for free trade with the Philippine
Islands, with certain limitations
upon the amount of sugar and to
bacco that may be imported in
any one year. The Stone amend
ment will provide that the United
States must define its policies with
reference to the Philippines and
fix a limitation, not more than
fifteen years hence, upon the con
trol of the islands. It provides
that the United States then shall
withdraw and deliver over the
reins of the government to the
Filipines Under the amendment
this government would be required
to make treaties to secure the in
dependence and neutralizations nf
the islands.
Further provision is made that,
ill products grown in the Philip
pines shall be entitled to free en
try and in return all agricultural
machinery and implements, cot
ton and manufacturers thereof,
books and publications, machin
ery of all kinds needed in th>
manafacturing of Philippine
goods, and other articles which
are wholly the product of th^
United States shall be entitled to
free entry to the Philippines.
The Stone amendment is to hi -
come opporative when it has b< -
come approved by the the Fill

Effect of Baths on the Heart.
Two physicians, Dr. Beck and
Dr. Dohan, have made some inter
esting observations concerning the
change in the size of the heart in
hot and cold baths. These are re
ported in the Munhener Medizii -
ische Woerenschrift, The obser
vations were made on fourteen
persons, who were subjected to
baths of different temperatures.
It was found that in six out of
seven cases in which hot baths
were used, varying from 40 to 45
degrees centrigrade, the heart was
diminished in size after bath. The
diminution was very marked in
several cases.
Out of five persons subjected to
cold baths, it was found that the
hearts of four were iucreased ii
size after the hath. In one casi
there was neither increase nor de
crease. The enlargement was re
ported as remarkable in three
The effect of baths at body
temperature was found to be a
slight diminution.—New York
