Colonel Roosevelt In his speeches '
also .-ttaches great importance to the I
subject a:.d has a plan of his own for
handling It. All men nr.- agreed that '
It Is a question of great Importance to !
every human being living under the
? Barring for the present Colonel
Roosevelt's scheme of settlment, the
position of the two great parties may \
be succinctly stated In lh'? way: The I
Democrats are in favor of a tariff
for revenue only; the Republicans are
lit favor of a tariff for protection,
t'pon this questi, n the platforms are :
explicit. In the tariff plank of all the !
Democratic platforms the idea of rev- j
enuc only has been found, not always
expressed in the same language, but i
always expressing the same idea.
Likewise, the Republican platforms all
declare for a protect've tariff.
"It Will be observed that both plat- :
forms declare that the present tariff
rates are too high and ought to be
reduced, but If the taxpayers really ,
want the tariff reduced, they had bet- :
t< r rehiember what happened In very
recent times. In 1?0S the Republicans
promised to revise the tariff down?
ward. On that promise thc-y won. I
Without that promise they could not !
hu\e won. But having wen, tnstead
of reducing the tariff rates as they j
bad promised to do. they proceeded to j
increase them, and because they In- i
creased them contrary to their prom- 1
Ise, at the election In 1910 the peo- i
pie elected .i Democratic House of Rep- 1
Part) Kepi the Faith.
"The Democratic House proceedtd
with as much expedition as possible
under the circumstances to pass cer?
tain tariff bills, which would have
reduced the amount of money ex?
tracted flora the people's pockets by
the tariff laws by something approxi?
mating $500.000,000 yearly, and at the
same time would have provided ample
revenue to run the government; for it
should never be forgotten that where
Uncle Sam gets one dollar out of the
tariff system, iho tariff barons get at
least tivr. By doing so the Demo?rats
ki pi the faith of the people.
"In this contest, remembering these
tHliigS, which one of the two parties
will the taxpayer believe intends to
carry out its promises made In Its
platforms this year lb reduce the
tariff? Will the taxpayers believe
the party which violated its promise
Oh this Subject Of will they believe t lit
party which performed its promise?
"The Democrats declare in favor of |
reducing IhC tariff gradually, so as.
not to disturb the legitimate business;
Of the country, for it Is a thing In
creditable that any sane man should]
desire to injure--even lit the estimation j
ol ii hair?any legitimate business of
the country. The charge so often
made by the Standpat Republicans that !
Democrats, for some unaccountable
reason, desire to Injure the legitimate
Industries of the country is so pre
posterous as to be proof conclusive
that even those who make the charge
most vociferously do not believe .a
word of it.
PrVisneeta Bright.
"Democratic prospects have hot been
so bright since i io2. As a matter of
fact, they are brighter now than they:
were at this time In the y.ar 1$92.
The reason they are brighter?that the]
Democrats have almost a certainty of

of the magnificent record made by the

To the Editor of The Times-Dispatch,
Sir.?I have been very much gratified
by the progress of the work in which
you have so efficiently taken part, and It
sc.-ms to me very admirable that the
editots and publishers of the country
should have lent themselves so gener?
ously ami effectively to the work of
raising campaign funds by popular
su scrlptlon. They prove themselves
in this matter genuine- Progressives,
for nothing could more directly pro?
mote the great purpose we :vl 1 have
In mind, of putting the government
and all that concerns It In the hands of
the people, than the facilitation nnd en?
couragement of popular subscriptions
for the payment of the necessary ex?
penses of our campaign. I wish 1
knew of sonn- means by which to ex?
press to the editors and publishers
concerned directly my admiration and
appreciation ?
Cordially and sincerely yours.

Attack of Political Opponent
Results in Criminal Libel j
(Special to The Times-Dispatch 1
Kayettcville. N. C. August 2?.?As
the result of charges against the poli?
tical and personal ability of K. Ntm
mocks, his opi onent for this Democra?
tic senatorial nomination for the Thli
teenth Senatorial District. Captain
.lames D. McNeil was to-oay Indicted
for criminal ?bel by the grand jury of
the Criminal Court now sitting here.
The charges uttereel by Captain Mc?
Neil were contained in a circular let?
ter distributed In Hoke and Cumber?
land Counties anei published by a Rae
ford paper Immediately prior to the'
Democratic primary in Hoke last Sat?
urday, which Captain McNeil carried. |
The political charges allege that Mr.1
Nlmmocks by "treacherous mcthi ds"
defeated Captain McNeil's kinsman,!
Charles O. Rose, for the Senate nomina?
tion In 190S, In answer to this charge
the "Nimtnorks committee." which is
headed by f. M. Walker, has issued In
circular form a letter from Mr. Rose!
disclaiming any knowledge of treach?
erous methods being used against him
by Nlmmocks.
On top of this Captain McNeil re-1
peats his statement In the local paper
this afternoon, alleging that Nlmmocks
eiurtng the 1908 campaign used the ar?
gument In the rural districts thnt "if
Rose, who was a railroad lawyer, was
sent to the Senate, he would legislate
in favor of the railroads and against
the people." Captain McNeil says that
he informed Mr. Rose of these alleged
efforts against him, and that it Is kins?
man admitted their existence.
In addition to denying knowledge of
them. Rose In his letter to Nlmmocks
declares that the only "treacherous
methods" of which he knew in 1909
I were those of Captain McNeil in ot
I ganiztng an opposition ticket which lie
] ran against the Democratic county
The other charge used by McNeil con?
cerns the settlement bf an Insurance
partnership between Nlmmocks and A.
J. Cook. Nlmmocks answers this
charge by the publication in the local
paper of a receipt in "full settlement
ami satisfaction" freun Mr. Cook, which
' h. claims disposes of the charge at
i together.
| McNeil was hailed into court on the
criminal libel lndlcments, of which
there are two counts, and placed tinelcr
J?eO Pond on each count. The P'ca:
! paper this afternoon publishes a state
:tneni signed by fifty well known clt
j Isens of FnycttevlUe attesting their
I confidence in Mr. Nlmmocks. Nlm?
mocks in n statement this afternoon
shys be win crlmlally prosecute .nil
other persons "known to me as aiding
and abetting in the circulation of Mc
lNcll'a false and malicious slander."
When tlte case of .lohn 1. Robertson,

very active business session ami two!
days or hilarity the Virginia Rcmlon '

The ritualistic trophy was awarded
to the degree team from Richmond. It
was to have been contested for, and
the contest was to have been one of
the feature:- of the meeting, but no
other team exfept Richmond present?
ed Itself, and the contest was called
off. The team from the capital city,
however, exemplified the work for the
benefit of those who had assembled,
and the p-lre of 5100 was awarded.
Practically all suggestions made In
the report of retiring President Max
F. Lindner were adopted. On<- of these I
was that the contest for the traveling j
tropl.y bi mad. q continuous feat-re of
annual conventions, and that it shall
become the permanent property of the
winning lodge If won at two succes?
sive sessions.
Another recommendation of Frest
deht Lindner which was unanimously
adopted was that all Virginia dcle
coi.r, t.-, t.'-c national conventions of
Elks shall wear a uniform display in- j
slgnla, and a committee of three will
bi appointed by the president to Und
ways and means of creating one.
with regard to recommendations
that a memorial be erected at Bedford
City at the i;iks Home there by the
I tilted Elks of Virginia, action was
deterred until some future reunion.
A.tter the formal adjournment of the
business ini etlng which came Shortly
before 1 o'clock, the visitors were
taken on a trip around Hahiptoh Roads
and through the harbor, landing at
Portsmouth at t o'clock, where the I
Kiks of that city tendered a luncheon
and reception at their clubhouse. On
both of these trips the visitors were
accompanied hy the Naval Post Hand.
The wind up came to-night when I
the whole ng^r?Sniion of antler.d ones
went to Ocean View with the Naval

New York. August 29?A sharp
Criticism of missionary societies of all
denominations was contained in the
presentment of the King's County
grand jury for the August term, which
was discharged to-day.
After commenting upon the grow?
ing number of cases of waywardness
and crime among young girls and of
the lncrenses being constantly guide
to the ranks of crime by young hoys
of minor >esrs, the presentment con?
tinued :
"This Jury would suggest that If
the heads of representatives of the va?
rious religious dcmontnatlons in this
county were Invited to attend the ses?
sions of the County Co irt on arraign?
ment day they would .see for them?
selves what was going on, and then,
Instead of paying K<> much attention to
foreign missions, they would better
understand the axiom that Charity
begins at home."*
The presentment closed with praise
for the policemen who had presented
their castis to the grand Jury In an
Intelligent and legal fashion.

three-months' investigation of charges
that the decree dissolving the so-call?
ed trust had been Violatod, The gov?
ernment. It Is added, has not yet de?
cided whether It will proceed on the
question of the violation of the de?
cree which would involve contempt

considered the question under the
criminal feature of the Sherman law.
Contempt proceedings would have to
be undertaken direct!) before a Fed?

ment returned to-day, however, it Is
pointed out. will not bar the govern?
