THE CAROLINA WATCHMAN.
WM. H. STB WART, Ed. and Prop Published every Tuesday at 120 West Innes street. Sintered as second-class matter Jan. 19th. 1906, at the post office at Salis bury, N. C., under the act of Congress of March 8nl, 1897. Telephone No. 458. Salisbury, N. C., Oct 5th, 1910. The tariff and Kepublioan fos tered trusts have caused an in crease in the price of tobacco, snuff, sugar and coffee. Oh you prosperity 1 We read: “The average Ameri can doeB not take time to masti cate his food.” No, but it takes plenty of time for the average American to get some food to mas ticate. Under this grand wave of pros perity the farmer gets a little more for his produce but he has to pay a whole lot more for what he buys. The law of supply aud demand is not easily gotten away from. While Dr. C. M. Poole has persis' tently refused to become a candi date for any offioe, he unhesitat ingly says the time has come for people to work and vote for men who will serve the public best and selfish interests less. A. H, Boyden’s record in be half of the old soldiers is like this: He opposed Capt John Beard for sheriff, he opposed Capt. Jas. R. Crawford for sheriff, he refuBed to allow Capt. Crawford to be a deligate to the county con vention after he was elected by the voeers of his box, he opposed Capt.T.B, Beall for register of deeds, he opposed the old veteran Cyrus B. Watson for U. S. Senate and when he became mayor of Salisbury he discharged B. R. Ketchie, an old soldier, and ap pointed a negro.in his place. We dare any Boydenite to deny these charges. A. H. Boyden, the candidate against A. W. Wineooff for the 8tate Senate, has boasted often and loud that he bolted Bryan, the Democratic nominee for pres ident. Now it seems peculiar to us that he should have the right to bolt, to vote for the opposition, yet remain a Democrat. Has he some special rights that the com mon people cannot secure? When and how did he become so great? Why havn’t the plain people equal rights? Let’s show him that we have equal rights, equal privileges, and give him such a big dose of his own medicine this fall that he will gladly crawl into a hole and pull the hole in after him. Col. Al. Fairbrother, who has just returned to Greensboro from an extended visit to California, says in his October number of Everything: ‘‘The news from Salisbury is to the effe-o that Rowan county will have about six tickets in the field by Novem ber. Some of the new tiokets are put out hoping to defeat the Hon orable Baldy Boyden. iThe people of Rowan love Baldy Boyden. He is a lovable character, and the Democtats of that county are not going to let a crowd of politicians defeat one of the best man in North Carolina.” Allie old boy you may be smart, but you are not posted. The politicians and Baldy are all to gether, no cloud between, only a demyjohn. It is the decent, up right, lawabiding citizens of Row an who are not only trying but are going to elect the said lovable gentleman to stay at home this fall. As long as our friend Fair bud plays the second fiddle for the Colon*l(?) it will be all sunshine and flowers, but dare ye touch the first and note your relegation to darkness and despair. Since A. W. Winecoff, one of the best, oleaneBt and most up right citizens of Rowan County, has been induced by the good peo ple of the town and oounty to make the race for the State Sen ate, and has received the unquali fied endorsement of all who wish to see right prevail, J. R. Nicho las, county treasurer and candi date for re-election, who has had his office in Mr. Winecoff’s store, id order to show his disapproval of Mr. Winecoff’s candidacy and line up with the Boyden element, has moved his office. This act of his, as we interpret it, means that he does not wish to be caught af filiating with men who have hon estly endeavored to do the right and proper thing as long as there was hope, but refused to be ignor ed and robbed of their rights. Let every man who loves justice and freedom of choice of political opinion see that Mr. Nicholas is defeated this fall. There is to be no gag rule for the good people of Rowan. This idea of trying to persecute and injure a man be cause he stands on his rights and claims the equal privilege with all men in the exercise of his choice, in the expression of his convic tions, in the selection of his poli tics and religion, is rank tyrany, and the man who dares attempt to curtail these sacred privileges is an enemy to freedom, to patri otic endeavor, and should be se verely dealt with. Instead of electing such men to offioe they should be deprived of that which they have. These things are the very mud sills of our most sacred and valuable rights and to deny them is to deny all that civiliza tion and noble manhood aspires to. These rights have come to us through the severest trials and most grievous sacrifices and must not be allowed to be swept away, or even ignored, by a petty offi cial’s caprice. But, this is Boy denism. What will the noble minded, honest hearted Christian voters of Rowan County do for such men this fall? We are con vinced they will do the very prop er thing. Reuben J. Leonard, the Repub liban nominee is an honorable, upright, clear-headed, oapable gentleman and will give us just as clean, just as accurate and just as suitable a treasurer as auy oue, We have known him for years and have always fouud him sound, safe and courteous If things go on this way there will be a clean sweep made of it in November. Boydenism must end somewhere and sometime and. now is as good a time as any to do the job. MORAL DUTY. The Greensboro Record says in a recent issue, "any citiz-n has a perfect right to refuse to support any nominee, but uot after he has taken a hand in the game.” The Greensboro Record of course presumes that the citizen has lost his choice in an honorable and fair manner, and when such is the case we heartily agree with the Record or any one who may make such an assertion. In fact we truly believe that a mau who, af ter going into a primary or con vention and has been defeated in a fair and honorable manner, re fuses to abide by the result, is not to^je trusted, and is unworthy of the confidence and respect of his fellow man. Yea, we are willing to make it stronger than this if necessary. There is no other way to arrive at a fair choice, or ex pression of the peoples’ wishes. The majority must rule, but there must be justice. A nomination obtained otherwise is fraud, it is not majority rule, it is boss rule, and boss rule is something no free man should submit to any longer than it is necessary to get to the ballot box and put in his protest by voting against the boss. Now what is the situation in Kowan County, who is the boss and how is the game worked? How is the will of the people thwarted and how are the votes of free men stolen? Well, you know who the boss is, We will not discuss him. His methods are the objeots of righteous indignation. For in stance a primary is called, poll holders are named, ballots are cast and counted and a convention completes the job. The pollhold ers have for the past twenty years been appointed suitable to the boss’s will. These pollholders are the selected friends -of the boss and they do his bidding regardless of right or consequences. One of these men was recently asked how Mr. B. got so many votes at his box. and the reply reveals the en tire game: Why, says he, “As I took the ballots out of the box I called B, regardless for whom they were voted.” Is this honorable? Is there any square deal about this? Is this what we are to ac cept as majority rule in Rowan county? Is there any moral duty resting upon any one to abide by such a result? We say if there is any moral duty connected with such a game, it is our moral duty, patriotic duty, to repudiate it at once and forever teach the party, and the boss, that we are not ignoble slaves who will not dare , to raise our voices in protest and assert our political rights. And further, not satisfied with thus stealing our ballots, men ybo reoeived sufficient votes to obtain the nomination,werenominated by the people, were turned down by a handful of the boss’s tools in the convention and the nominations given to men who did not receive hardly enough votes to be consid ered to 6e in the race. Both the will of the people and the prima ry, which they are so anxious for us to abide by, was deliberately nullified, tramped under foot and spit upon. And this is not the first year this thing has been done. It has been going on for years and the outrageous conduct has beoome bolder and bolder un til self-respecting mtn, Demo crats, have no alterative save to repudiate such a travesty upon the principles they have loved from boyhood and still love. De cent men demand that the party that obtains their allegiance must be a decent party. It must oon aider them as equals with all of its members, it must count their votes as cast, and give the nominations to those to whom they belong. This is the only quarter asked, it is the only thing for self-respecting men to do and The Record, or any honest person, will not expect less of them nor blame them for so doing. If this is not Democracy then surely we are no longer Democrats, but" in surgents, independents, or any thing one is of a mind to call us. One thing is certain, we are not going to longer be robbed in this manner and then permit ourselves to be fiaid alive because we refuse to help the fellows who have so flagrantly outraged commoa jus tice, decency, oourtesy and sense, mistreated us and »tole our bal lots. Finally, we, therefore beg to remind each man of the moral and patriotic duty encumbent upon him, as a true citizen of this country, to think well before he votes for any candidates so irregu larly declared to be the nominees of the primary and convention in which he was unjustly and delib erately robbed of his rights.

SCIENCE ON THE FARM. Enables the Farmer to Trade $2 For $9, Says a Scientist. “Carrying Scientific Agriculture to the Farmer” was recently discussed by Dean H. L, Bussell, University of Wisconsin: Scientific agriculture Is permanent agriculture. The Chinese have a more fertile soil than ours be cause they have applied scientific ag riculture. Holland produces thirty three bushels of wheat per acre. We produce thirteen bushels. Great interest could be aroused by convincing our people that there Is an undiscovered continent whose soil Is as productive as ours. We will find that continent when we discover the methods by which our soils can be made to double their production. Our experiment stations have discovered the secret, but that will do no good until the tillers of the soil understand it. The publications of our stations must reach our people and be read by them. Information must be put in concrete form; it must be visualized. Three things are necessary in farming —first. Improved seed; second, Improv ed production; third, reduction of loss. We are appointing county demon strators who go into each county and employ tho “show me” method of farming. Com, wheat and other grains and crops are planted and the cultiva tion done before the farmer and his help. ■me rarmer may De prejuaiceu against new methods, but this opposi tion yields when he is shown the bet ter way. Wisconsin was driven from raising wheat by the chinch bug, but this bug was a godsend to agriculture because the farmers went into the dairy business. By growing wheat we Increased our bank account and depleted our soils; by dairying we both increase our bank account and the fertility of our farms. The purchase of $2 worth of phos phorus on a stock farm Increased our crops $9 worth. We are always willing to trade $2 for $9. There is a limited amount of phosphorus in our soils, and to keep up the phosphorus content we buy for $10 as much phosphorus in the raw rock as we formerly got for $25 In the treated goods. The tax which comes from apathy, Indifference and ignorance is the highest tax farm ers pay. To Kill Bull Thistles. Bull thistles, common in pastures, cannot always be killed by mowing. Mowing tends to prevent maturity of seed. Cutting off the thistles just be low the surface of the ground two or three times a year will effectually erad icate them.
