THE CAROLINA WATCHHUH.
WM U. STEWART, Ed, and Prop Published every Tuesday at 120 West Innes street. Entered as second-class matter Jan. 19th. 1805, at the post office at Salis bury, N. C., under the act of Congress of March 8rd, 1897. SUBSCRIPTION PRICE. Watchman and Record one year two papers per week, cash in advance, $1,00 per year; six months, 50c. :a isbuby, N.C. Feb. 10th. 1910 The many friends of sheriff McKenzie were glad to see him at his fiice attending .to his usual du ies Friday and since. There wr never any danger of him sp iding smallpox, l ut just for th sake of precaution he “stayed oli'-e” for a few days. Mr, Mc K nzie is one of the most prompt and efficient officers the county has ever had and when he is ab se t the difference is quite marked. The smallpox situation is well in hand and there is no fear of a spread of the disease from those now under quarantine. Not with the intention of cen suring any one, but merely to express surprise at the success of what seems to us a trivial excuse for the adjournment of the Feb rufiry term of the Rowan Superior C>' irt, and, the consequent failure to give prompt and speedy trial for those who are kept in suspense, c nfined and under bond. Of C- rtainly this course was taken as a precautionary measure and may b justified, but as to this no one k ws. Of course no one would ex ect that the prisoners affected si- uld have been brought in and t-r d, hut after the very rnauy precautions taken and a week or m had passed without the de v 1 pm.nt of any new cases of the disease, we question the wis di m of the failure to hold the cc u rt. The Confederate Veteran, pub li ed at Nashville, presents what p ports to be a list of States m w eh monuments to the Crnfed t re soldier have been erected w h the number of monuments in eicb State. North Carolina is 'redited with two m UiUiflvirs, as against seventeen for South Caro lina, twenty-three for Te an ssee, thirteen for Georgia, thirteen for Alabama, ten for Kentucky, and soon. Phis makes the Charlotte Obsever very angry and that paper rears up on its hind legs and de livers it self thus: "How The Veteran ever permitted itself to make so absurd a mistake and do inorth Carolina so glaring an injustice, we can’t imagine. If there are less than a dozen monu ments to the Confederate dead in this State—the Confederate dead 'as distinguish from individual commanders—we will eat the two which The Veteran uames ” We hope there are more than two Con federate monuments in North Car olina, bat we hope the Nashville paper is not mistaken. That is to say, we would like to see the Char lotte Observer forced to eat two monuments—two very largi and hard ones.—And rson Mail. There has been considerable anxiety in certain circ.es here since the above threat was made by the Charlotte Observer, a;.d the abvisability of employing a guard to keep watch about our beautiful monument has been hinted more than ouce. Some people, however, like the quillidriver of the Ander son Miil, seem to think it would lie a matter of considerable 1 jvity to see the Observergnawiuji on this handsome pill of stone and bronze which is of no mean proport'ons. I If such should be the Observer’s misfortune, we would at least be so fortunate as to have the Observ er iu our midst for a mouth or so But let those whii are timid fear not. there are Confederate rnonu viments in North Carolina galore and others are being erec ed up some frequently. To Investigate Cause of High Living. Washington, Feb 6 —Whether the Senate and House will con duct rival investigations into the causes ■ -f the high c< st of the nec essaries f life is a qu3Stiou that c ueerus the Republican political leaders mors deeply than any oth er problem now before Congress. If both bodies conduct a exarni nation they fear that different conclusions may be reached and that such differing reports, on the eve of the Congressional elections, w uld be likely to pr. ve embarrassing to the Republican mui rity Nevertheless the Re publicans of the Senate apparent ly are determined to order such an inquiry and conduct it with the u'.m .st dispatch, regardless of t.ie views of the House leaders on the subject. MARRIAGES. Wlggs-Lenlz, Frick-Stirewalt, Holshouser Jones, Ryan-Smlth, Miss Jessie Ryan, of Chestnut Hill, and Charles M.
