Wa H Stewart, HDITOB AN® OWNER Published Every Wednesday, 120 West Innes Street. SUBSCRIPTION price: Watchman_1 yr.$.75 Record.1 yr.$ .75 Both Papers..1 yr.$100 Advertising rates reasonable. Entered as second-class matter Jan. 19th. 1906, at the post office at Salis bury, N. 0., under the act of Congress of March8rd, 1879. Salisbury, October 22, 1913 Saber seems to be coming to the front and is being met with ovations where ever he gong. Thedore Roosevelt has arrived in Brazil, a ohance for that coun try to place a ball moose in its too. Ashely Horn, a well known North Carolinian, died at his home at Clavton yesterday. He was a candidate for governor five yean ago. Mrs Pankhurst, the noted Eng lish suffragette, has arrived in New York and will start on a lec ture tour Friday. There should be no objection to Mrs, Pankhurst delivering lectures in this country bo long as she oonfines herself to reasonable argument. Some one has started a boom for Governor Craige as a proper successor to Senator Overman in 1915. In our opinion the fellow who started such an idea hasn’t got his brain working right. In the first plaoe Senator Overman will succeed himself and in the second place an anti-Bible reader need not show up for anything. Next week is trade in Salisbury week and everybody west of Mon roe, east of Asheville, north of the Sonth Carolina line or south of the Virginia line is cordially invited and expected to be in Salisbury to do their shopping. Look over the advertisements in The Watch man and while in;town make it a point to give these live merchants a call. And don’t forget The Watchman is the paper. Give ns a call and be welcome. I he trial of Thcs. E. Watson, editor-author and a former presi dential candidate, for tending ob scene matter thorough the mail was quashed iu the United States Court at Augusta, Ga , yesterday Sir. Watson is the publisher of a msgizine and a weekly paper and has been making some onslaughts on 'the Roman Cafholio church and reprinted some of the filth to be found in their books of in structions to priests, for which •ome Catholics desired to have him prosecuted, or rather perse cuted The indictment was thrown out on the ground that it was not possible to pick out a phrase here aDd there and find one guilty thereon. The entire publication mast be obscene to convict on inch a charge. This is a great victory for the freedom of the press and the propaganda against Romanism. It used to be that those who ob jected to the reading of the Bible were considered persecutors and tyrants, but now since our Baptist brethren have arranged a Bible all for themselves and fear that should a Bible be read in the school other than this rew one, the positions are reversed and those who want the Bible read are the tyrants, according to A. John son, of Charity and Children. We submit that if the desire to have the Bible read without comment « tyranical then what is the mis sionary spirit? Did the Master assume the role of a tyrant when ho said go ye and preach the gos pel to all the world? This appears straoge, since do one objects to a oouvert being immersed, if be so desires, that our brethren seem lo make this point the one requisite to salvation . This opinion of the Baptists’ position seems to be strengthened by the fact that only a few leaders who know of this new Bible oppose the reading of the Bible in sohool, while the rank and file, unaware of this re oent invention, are heartily in favor of its being read therein.

It is one of those peculiarly freak measures with which the country is suffer ing and assists, with others of similar ilk, in making the rich richer and the poor poorer. It saves money for the wealthy, those who can take advantage of the arrangement, and takes money from the poor who cannot meet the requirements. As ttie poor is the under dog in the fight and bears all the burdens any way, this measure is particularly un just. Oh that we could find some statesmen, men without selfish ness, men with justice in their souls and brains in their head to occupy the posts in the law mak ing bodies of our land! In this day of paternalistic teudenc as it is surprising such a measure oould have been made into law, and this right at the time when the nation is trying to assist the p^or and make the rich pay their just portion of the national reve nue in the way of an income tax. Who daddied this outrage? MARRIAGES j * i i A The marriage of Miss Maude, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. R. Seaford, of Granite Quarry, and R C.
