THE PRESIDENT WANTS PEACE And Brownlow Jackson Would Take "no Chances in Getting Con firmed as Postmaster at Hendersonville. BY TltOMAS J. PENCE. Washington, D. C. (Special). The pres ident is quoted by L. N. Grant, the nomi nee for postmaster at Goldsboro, as being desirons of briBging about ht rmony in the ranks of the republican party in the state, and that he will give assistance to any ef fort to bring about peace between tne Rol lins and Blackburn factions. Young Mr. Grant went to the White House to thank the president for his appointment, and the very mention of republican politics in North Carolina gave Mr. Roosevelt an op portunity to open up on conditions, which he informed Mr. Grant had given him much concern. ' How far the president went in his conversation with bis Tar Heel visitor was not disclosed, but Mr. Loeb is authority for the statement that the chief executive is not only "concerned,' but "disgusted" with North Carolina repub licans. . ' ' - '.' ' - -' Grant emphasized the President's desire for peace among Tar . Heel - republicans when he left the White House. He ad mitted that representative Blackburn's name was not mentioned at the interview, . and that the president oid not suggest any plan or ideas for bringing about harmony. Mr. Grant would stand by Blackburu, who secured him his appointment, judging by an interview in an afternoon piper in which he said that it was the general opiuion in North Carolina that he would come but of his trial, if it ever occurred, with honors. JBch Aaiwen: Get Together. . Grant said amu ig other things in this interview: "We thiuk it is about time to get together, and put a stop to the squab bling and fighting which is constantly go ing on. The thing to do is to get together down in North Carolina and settle our dif ferences there instead of bringing them to the president. ' The president agrees to this and 1 thiuk before long we may be able to start the work of reconciliation of the fac tions. However, the task looks pretty vbard at preeeutas neither, side shows the slightest indication of giving in." The suggestion was made by a gentleman who happened at the White House, and who eyidently keeps up with political con ditions in North Carolina, that the presi dent had better hurry or else he would have to conduct his peace negotiations in the Federal penitentiary in Atlanta, where former Congressman Liiiney has predicted that the next North Carolina republican state convention will be held. The president has been working to re store peaceful relations between the war rine radical factions iu Tennessee, but with no apparent success. Young Grant was at the caitol and saw Senator Simmons about bis confirmation, and while there he ran Into ex-Judge Rob inson, of Goldsboro, who former Senator Butler said would come here for the pur pose of opposing his confirmation. He has Judge Robinson's statement that he con templates no such action. It is probable that Grant's name will be reported favora bly for confirmation this week. Presideut Roosevelt has informed Fome of the candidates for the pesition of com missioner under the Foreaker bill t mark the graves of Confederate soldiers who d ied in northern prisons, that the appointment does not belong to him, but to the secre tary of war, and has referred all those in terested to that official. The president is said to look tu..st kindly on the candidacy of Col. WillUm Elliott, ..f Columbia, S. C, who nerved several terms in Congress.

Sample copies of both papers sent on' request. bosom friend ot former Senator Butler, was at the White House today, and there was a report that he went to talk over the ques of a cabinet position for the ex-populist national chairman. Fettigrew and Butler are together today. ( Representative Blackburn has nominated Saoford Cowlec, of Wilkes, for appoint ment as midshipman at Aunapolxs. " Brownlow Jackson, of Hendersonville, came here to see about his appointment as postmaster at that place, and the president sent his name to the senate today. He is going to stay here ad try and get confirm ed, if possible, without delay. He knows what it means 10 give North Carolina re publicans the opportunity to hold up a nomination. Blackburn Works Dumb Racket. Representative Blackburu has changed his tactics very materially si nee his visit to North Carolina. When he left here he was talking of doing half a dozen different stunts, one of which includes a speech on the floor of the house in denunciation of his political adversaries. Since his return his vocabulary ia almost limited to that of a dumb man. He does go to the extent of saying "good morning in greeting friends, and on one or two occasion last week was heard to ma&e response of "yes and "no." Sileuce is Mr. Blackburn's guiding thought since he talked over his case with his attor neys at Greensboro and Asheville. When the congressman returned to Washington he acd his friends considered the advisability of calling a mass meeting at Wilkesboro, in which republicans from every township in the district were to be present with the object of tendering him another nomination. Vindication by mass meeting was not considered the - advisable thing by a number of Blackburn's friends and the idea was abandoned, although some of -his enthusiastic supporters said three thousand people cculd be gotteu together. An Um pi ! Light. Blackburn is also beginning to realize that the charge that Distnet Attorney Hol ton resorted to peanut politics to bring about his indictment is not iroint to clear him of the charge that he has violated the law, especially in view ef the faet that Mr. Holton is no longer a factor i:i the case, and the action of the Department of Jus tice in shouldeiine all responsibility: Tne statement was made to this correspondent at the Department of Justice tnat tne in dictment against Blackburn ia not ;Mr. Hoi ton's act, nor even that of Assistant Attorney-General Robb,. but that the de cision to prosecute the congressman was reached by Attorney-General Moody him self, who, after considering the facts, or dered that Mr. Holtou proceed with the machinery of the law. From present indi cations Mr. Blackburn will face one of the assistant attorney-generals, Robb or Mc Reynolds, when his case comes to trial in Greensboro in April. Mr. Holton will be e hand, but the fact is going to be brought out very clearly, from present indications, mat me administration in v. asnintrio as sumes all responsibility tor tne proceedings against Mr. Blackburn.

Knoxville, by Way of this City Contracts for construction and equip- ment of the new railroad from Green wood, 8. C, to Knoxville,' Tenn., by way of Hendersonville, have now been let. This is of vital interest to all the the citizens of Henderson county and of Hendersonville. They are now five -miles above Jennings' Mill, on the Gap Creek Road, within 13 miles of Hen dersonville, and work will be - pushed steadily on. The road will run from Greenwood, S. C, by way of Greenville, to Hendersonville, then by way of Can ton, N. C, to Newport, Tenn., to Knox ville, and the coal fields. This is the. first great step towards making Hendersonville a railroad cen tre. It will give us competition, short en the distance between the coal fields and the South, and be of inestimable benefit to Hendersonville and to the farmers of Henderson county. In the natural course of events, Henderson ville cannot grow without a correspond ing benefit to the surrounding country, and at the rate of increase which has prevailed in the last few years, and which certain other enterprises now, in hand will give an added inpetus to, the farm hand in Henderson county will soon be as valuable as any in the South. The contract for construction and equipment of the road from Greenwood to within 13 miles of Hendersonville have already been let, and the work is completed to within 5 miles of Jennings' Mill. The president and general man ager of the road will be here probably next-week to. confer .with itheiUz.enscil.-tr..; neighbors property and the town and county as to what action they are willing to take in connection with this enterprise, so vital to the in terests of all. that no doubt a liberal and progressive policy will be adopted by our people, who are as one in every thing that will tend to build a GREAT ER HENDERSONVILLE and a more prosperous Henderson County. M Death ot Dr. John Mitchell. The news of the death of Dr. John Mitchell will be of interest in Hender sonville, as Dr. Mitchell was pastor of a church here between 1889 and 1891. In IvJi he went to. Europe, and on his j return took charge of 'the educational department of Wake Forest, After several years devoted to that work, he became enfeebled with diseases, and died at the home of his brother in Ber tie county, on March 3rd, 'where he had spent his latter years. He was a man of extraordinary meekness and mild ness of disposition, and his piety was pronounced. Probably, the leading trait of his character was goodwill to wards all men. He was pasto of the First Baptist church of Asheville, and pave It its inmetus to success. A most liberal contributor to church work and to all charatable and educational in stitutions, the cry of the destressed and needful was always heard by him. As the Uiblical Recorder says: "He was one that walked amongst his breth ren here ad did his work as a man must, but who nevertheless looked steadfastly to the City which hath foun dations whose builder and maker is God. He is within the gates of that city now and on the bosom of his Lord. " The Message Dou't you hear the message The sparrows chip all day? "Comin' corain' comin' Spring ain't far away! There's something in the sunsnme that's hintin' of the May!" II That is just the message They're tellin' right along: 'You'll soon find pleasant places Where the honeysuckles throng A garden, red with roses, and an orch ard, sweet with song!" Ill An' we're lovin' of that message, For we hear the bluebird's call The tickle of a drop o' dew, As a daisy bears it fall; An' a daisy in a meadow is a holiday to alll . . F. L. Stanton.

To the Editor: Will you please al low me space in your paper to object to the open violation of the city or dinance which prohibits the owners of chickens allowing them to run at large. In my opinion any one who wishes to keep chickens certainly has that privi lege. But they have not the right to allow them to run at larere. to de- gardens on which much time and labor has been spent, and to maintain a nui sence, with an utter desregard of their neighbors' rights. I hope you will agitate this as it is a serious matter with many of our people, and we urge you to insist upon a more rigid enforce ment of the city ordinance referred to Thanking you for publishing this, I am Very truly yours, Subscriber.

The Hospital Association: Its Aims A few months ago the idea of the Hospital Association of Hendersonville was first agitated by Miss Lucy Davis and Mrs. Capt. Toms. The first meeting was held at the residence of Mrs. Toms, and the ladies now meet in the County Commissioners' room in the Court House. The association is non-sectarian, the dues are but ten cents a month and there are forty members enrolled. Four rooms are donated in the Irving Place, entil June 1st, with a lady in charge, when the association wishes to rent an entire house'where their accom modations will be more ample. This is a brief outline of the Hospital' Asso ciation of Hendersonville: The spirit of self sacrifice, of good will, of love for the. unfortunate, shown by this organization is worthy of the utmost support from all onr citizens. Actuated solely by the spirit of the Mas ter, who said, "As ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me," they have spent time and money in relieving the unfortunate of this city and county, and Dr. Waldrop is author ity for the statement that at least two lives have been, saved through their efforts. They have heard the cry of the distressed and of the needy. They have relieved destitution in many homes, sending wood, food and clothing, and t.b A?r rooms at the Trvinz Place has , , . tiA''aFAfn.l pruveu , Wl and distressed. 10 wnan nner use can money possibly be put than to aid these only rational remedy for coughs and ladies in establishing a modern hospital colds' would be to move the. bowels and in Hendersonville?

Mr. Brown at the home of Mr. Alonzo Brittain and said I will to the question usually asked on such oc casions.' Only a few more nuptial occa sions until our boys and girls get a lit tle older. . s There seems to be a growing senti ment In the 10th district In favor of W. T. Crawford for congress. If the senti ment continues to grow it will be like an incident that occurred when I was a boy. At that time the Baptist oenomi- nation elected their preacher by the conirre?ation. At Friendship church where they , were holding an election for a pastor, the Rev. James Blythe wai very popular, as he was all over the county. He was so popular wiux cnat congregation the boys thought he was the onlv man. While the election was i ha fcnusA mv brother was out tne yani another came out and 8ald Jim. have you voted?" fNo. "Well, go in and vote, you have nothing to say but Blythe." So it is beginning: to look as if the delegates will have nothing to say but Crawford. ' V I spent three days of last week in Hendersonville and was present during the entire Jones & Cagle trial and I must say that I never have seen an article that misrepresented the good citizens of any county more than your Asheville correspondent did the good citizens of Henderson county in reference to that trial. During Mr. Spainhour's entire speech of one and a half hours it seemed to me you could have heard a pin fall. Some of the testimony was a little sen sational in itself, hut not in the audi ence.

No; we don't mean events that occur by chance altogether, for the most interesting as well as ele vating occurrences in any community whole-heartedv citizens; while happen- inrs are usually the periods which punc- tuate a perverse, careless, or distorted course of action. Events which occur j by the will of Providence do not come by chance, and therefore ' in the latter gense cannot be said to happen but ex- cuse me, I don't mean to - philosophize, but wish to propose a query to my fel- low country correspondents: .
