The Carolina Watchman • - Wm. H. STEWART, Editor and Owner Published Every Wednesday, 120 West Innes Street SUBSCRIPTION PRICE: Watchman, 1 year, .75 Record, 1 year,.75 The Progressive Farmer, 1 year, 1.00 All 3 for a year each, only $1.50 Entered as second-class matter January 19th, 1905, at the postoifice at Salisbury, N. C., under the act of Congress of March 3rd, 1879.* _* Salisbury, N. (J., May 19, ’15. The State Supreme Court has paused ou several cases brought to test the one-quart liquor law pass ed by the last legislature and held it to be constitutional. Old John dies slowly but surely. One reason the politicians do not object to women voting is because where it has been tried there has been no appreciable changes made. They find it just as easy, if not a little more so, to work tricks ou the women as the men; Considerable complaint is heard in regard to the speeding cf au tomobiles and mortorcyoles ou the streets of Salisbury and on the avenue between Salisbury and Spencer. It is a wonder there are not many accidents resulting from this praotice as few pay any attention to the ipeed regula tions. Our pressman went to sleep this morning and failed to get enough ink on a portion of the paper this week and it was dis covered too lste to reprint. We eregrt this and hope Buch au oc ourence will not oocur again. When our new preBB is installed we will be able to give a muoh better service. The Watchman does not be lieve an officer elected by the people has any business with plans. He is purely to the servant of the people and it is up to him to merely do their bidding and observe stnotly the requirements of his office. The people are get ting sore on bossism hereabouts. There is too mooh of it. We understand that a bolter from the Democratic party at the last election is a candidate for city tax collector, and, we under stand that there is no hope of hie election without the mayor-elect, W. H. Woodson, chairman of the County Democratic Executive Committee, so desires. The question is, What is the chairman of the party going to do about it? nthfiPB IYt O XT BQQ 1 nt Vi n t from our view point by the lack of sufficient appropriations and fore sight in regard to an adequate navy, Congress has permitted the American people to be found de fenseless in the hour of need. President Wilson is now playing the baby aot to keep us from te ing slapped off the earth, which of course is the only thing he can do at present. Now that the old Confederate soldiers are getting soarce. it has been suggested that their wives also be invited to partake of the annual dinner and memorial ex ercises. It is said that there was more than enough food supplied last Friday and to have the good women to join with the veteran* would oause no additional burden and yet oause more of the old veterans to attend. T4- ia tlio novinat rnt fr»i* a n XT posted American to intimate that the United State9 has a navy that would in any way justify this nation’s entering into a con flict with any Earopean power of consequence. Our little fifteen or twenty ships may be ready alright enough, but ready for what? Every important nation knows all that is necessary con cerning our navy and this bun combe about being “ready” only creates a smile.

CHRISTIANA. Wheat and oats are looking much better since the recent good rains, but there is much talk of planting tbe ootton over where the land ia tight. The apple crop will be very email this year. We had a fine crop of blooms, but at least 90 per cent did not materialize. R. B, Peeler is renovating his threshing machine, preparatory for threshing again after harvest. R. L, Brown, aa old oripled sol dier was very much surprised on Friday evening to receive a full meal of the old soldiers’ dinner from Salisbury He wae unable to get there himself, but somebody thought of him and Alexander Peeler brought it, saying he had a parcel post package. It was receiv ed and opened with pleasure, it contained ham, ham-salmon, beef, cheese, pickels, au assortment of fine cakes, pie, bread, meat, etc It was so far better than the ra tions they used to have in the army when we did our own cock ing, he had to oonclude that these rationns were too nice and too well prepared to be the production of men alone, he is sure the ladies had a prominent part in the pre paration of them. He wishes to express his hesrty thanks to the ladies, to those who thought of sending him some and to the man who brought it. We understand that the ranks of the old Boldiers are growing thin. A few more years and they will not need any more dinners here, but I hope they will be able to feast on better things. Nbxt week the girls will be home from the Mt. Pleasant Seminary. A very sad thing occurred at Mt Pleasant last week. A young man had been to Concord where he got some booze (probably mixed with poison) he came home, and that night while trying to vomit, fell over the banisters and died. Knowing that the good book says it is not good for man to be alone, T. J. G. Trexler, with a re •pectable pardoner by the name of Mrs. B. M. Misenheimer, call ed at the home of Rev. R. L Brown, on the morning of the 16th iu*taut and said th-y had a little work for him to do. They were i invited in and s ion they were made mau and wife and went on their way a happy couple. Our best wishes go with them for a long and happy life. R. L Brown and wife are visit ing in Salisbury this week at the home of A. L. V. Fisher’s. Viola. 1< FAITH. May 15.—D. W.

The members of the Reformed Church gave their pastor a big surprise one day this week in the way of an old time pounding.

' New Pork, May 17.—President, j Wilson today reviewed the Atlau- | tic fleet iu the Hudson Rive? and j a luncheon tendered to him on j shore by the city of N >w York told | a distinguished gathering what j the oouutry and its navy stood j for. The great battleships that j lay iu the river, he said, were j “Engines to promote the interests j of humanity.” j “Tth e inspiring thing about j America,” the President said, “Is j that she asks nothing for herself j except what she has a right to ask | for humanity itself. We want | uo Nation’s property; we wish to j stand selfishly in the way of the | uovoiupuiouu U1 U U -LI »UIUUi A A A A Is is not pretention'on our part to say that we are privileged to stand for what everp Nation would wish to stand for and speaking for those things which all humanity must desire.” The spirit which brooded over the river today, said the President was “Just a solemn evidence that the foroe of America is the force of moral principle, that there is not anything else she loves and that there is hot anything else for which she will contend.” THE MENACE. The Menace is doing the nation the greatest possible service in the greatest battle for principle that has ever confronted mankind. It is a question of truth and right eousness verses error, superstiti cf a id deception. On the resu t on this battle depends the safety oi onr republio, church- s and homes, and, whether you believe the as sertion or not, the situation de mands the honest and intelligent consideration of every one. If tht. statements made in the Menace are false and contrary to history Protestants ought tr know it, and, if they are true. Romanists ought to know it. If you are being made a tool of by some eclesias tic, read; if you are honest and are seeking light, read ; if you are s fool and can’t help it, read; read The Menace.
