Governor William E. Glasscock is
out in another appeal to the Republi
cans to support the ticket—and it is
a last and most desperate one. The
Governor's recklessness wlflh t.he
truth should turn it into an appeal
to vote with the Democrats. Any
voter who knows straight up has only
to read the document to see that it
is full of misrepresentations.
Here are some random ones:
"We have met every charge made

Flic Republican machine of \|erce
i - distributing voluminous < Irciitur
*. a.
I appealing to the voters to support the
^ bosses. It is full of fulse charges,
mainly a rehash of the stuff which has
appeared in the Telegraph to which
we have replied from time to time
One of the circulars allegt* that the
Democrats are in league with the
liquor interests, which is known to be
a base lie. The machine knows that
the Demorats have a dry platform
j and that they have dry nu n on it.
This eleventh hour distribution will
hardly deceive the voters*. it merely
shows the fine Italian baDd of the
: bosses.
The most amazing, monumental,
i Piece of gall connected with this cam
paign is the fact that a set of politi
jcal ringsters that have ralwuys been
wet an din favor of saloons, are re
sponsible for them In thLg county, have
switched clear around a^id are not ou
•7 claiming to be dry. but swearing
il.at they are the only dry people in
the county; and accusing people of
being wet and in favor of saloons who
j : ave always been dry aiud opposed the
saloons, and who in tite years gone by
have fought this very gang of men on
this very question. Mow nobody ob
jects to their being dry, or to their
having their views on the whiskey
question, but men wto are sincere on
tlds question and have always held
and acted on dry principles do ob
ject to such dirty political cusses as
these hopping up in their faces and
accusing them of being just what
' hey themselves have always been.1
and doubtless still are, at heart.
Beware of the man who changes his
views for the sake of political expedi
i ncy. It is better to have men deal
with the whiskey, question whose
views on the same are sincere and
which spring from themselves on au
honest consideration of it’, and not.
{from men who change their views to
meet a political situation. Men who
change from this motive once may
change again. Men who can be in
duced to change by the prospect of
g- tting office, may in office be induc
ed to change by the prospect of get
ting something else; and whefT they
come to deliver the goods you may
get what they promised and you may
get just, the reverse of what they
promised. Beware of the man who is
(liv by • resolution," and who thinks]
it necessary to publish his affidavit to
• hat fact every day in the newspapers,
for fear, no doubt, the people will not
believe him, and will judge him by
what he has done and not what he
says. Men are judged by deed and
not by words. Experience in the past
with these same gentlemen shows(
that words may be brt>ken, arid usu-l
ally are when they are opposed to the
political demands of the hour.
Vote for men who can be trusted,
whose word is as good as gold, and
is accepted by men everywhere at!
its full 'are value, and relied on with
in plieit eonfldenee because it has nev

Have the People Ruled?
Republican orators and t.e.vspapers
are saying on the eve of the congres
sional elections that the people have
really ruled through the Republican
party in congress during (he last few
years. If they ruled at the special
session of congress why was the tar
iff on plain white goods, such as are
used by women and children in every
family, increased 30 per cent? If the
people had really been in control, is
it reasonable to believe they would
have placed a duty of 105 pt r cent on
women’s woolen dress good > and at
the same time have permi. et? uncut
diamonds to come in eu!a\ed ’ I
it reasonable lo believe that if the
people had been In charge n.ey would
have voted against $1 > iMJO for cm!
dron's playgrounds anu *i2.000 lot
Speaker Cannon’s automobile?
There is one u.iy every t\ o yi:.: s
when the people really have matters
in their own hands. That day this
year is November S'. There are a
few more quiries which should he
considered by voters before entering
the election booths:
If the people rule, why was the
tariff bill drawn so ns to increase the
profits of the trusts and cost of living
to the people?
It the people rule, why was it that
no Income or inheritance tax law was
passed to force the millionaires to
bear their lair proportion of the bur
den of national taxation?
If the people rule, why don't they
get postal banks in every city instead
of a mere promise of one for every
state? Wheeling Register.
Suppose the submission of the pro
hibition amendment by the next Leg
islature depended upon a single vote,
as it did once before, is it not reas
onable to suppose that Senator Mak
er. if elected, would vote as he did
before, with the liquor interests, es
pecially in view of the fact that these
interests are supporting his candi
dacy?- Raleigh Register.

Section 424 of house bill No. 1 438, the Payne tariff

9, 1909, contained the following provision:
“Coal, bituminous, and coal slack, or culm, and shale, six

to the bushel;composition used for fuel in which coal or coal dust
is the component material of chief value, whether in briquettes
or other form, twenty per centum ad valorem; coke twenty per
centum ad valorem; provided, that any of the forgoing when

which imposes no tax or duty on like articles imported from the
