The Associated Press handled the have born the heat and burden of the CRAWFORD AND PEARSON. day. Your statesmen have demonstrate Will These Two Political Giants be i Pitted Against Each Other in the Fall Campaign. iudge's Charlotte speech in its entirety, and probably every paper in the south that uses the full Associated Press re ports published it. The significant por tion of Judge Parker's speech is as fol lows. "The time has'come when new duties 'and responsibilities must be undertaken by the democrats of the south. It is more than two score years since the war closed and your people find themselves upon the threshold of what promises to be the most remarkable business devel opment the world has ever known with in the same time and space. Some o your men have gone forth to command the highest success in the most honor able way, in the greatest financial and commercial movements of the time; others have become the managers of great railway interests; you have de veloped great manufacturing enter prises, and most dificult of all, your peo ple, as a whole, have so maintained and increased their position and the domi nance of the country in one of tne greatest products of the soil as to make them the wonder and the admirahon of the world. In spite of your devotion to principle and consistency, in the face pf numerical importance that was predom inant, in politics only have you stepped aside. From the earliest days since self-government was restored you have sent your best men into public life. They have been at once modest, able, devoted, patriotic'and honest. No jail or penitentiary has opened its hospit able doors to admit your senators, rep resentatives or governors, nor have the officers of the law, from detectives to attornev eenerals. been compelled to hale them into the criminal courts. In the face of this record you have not on ly permitted us of the north to present to you candidates for president and vice president, but you have insisted - udod our doing so and h&vetherefore voted for them, and that, too, when sometimes no other state would do so. In 1896 you tried Nebraska, and since that day, no old democratic northern state has ac credited one of our party to the United States senate and in none has there been friendly governor. All the democrat ic training schools of the north ele mentary, intermediate and higher were closed and have remained so; The party paralysis was complete and almost fatal. In 1904, hoping to cure pr palli ate it, you advised returning to New York for vour candidate only to meet the worst defeat in our party history. It is nor nearly twelve years since any man professing devotion to our party has been chosen in the nation or in any northern democratic state to fill any important executive office. At the last election, perhaps eight out of ten of the voters then UDder 30 were ranged with our opponents and today the party orernaizations are lifeless, their one time leaders are dead or have abdicated, or worse, have become republicans, while in more than one state the threat hangs over them that they may become the victims of the spoiler, the destruc tive, or the corruptionist. When such conditions confront you, why should you hesitate any longer? Unti the democraj-s oi JNeoraska and New York and other northern states have brought forth fruits meet for re pentance or at least so long as they are threatening to give themselves and the party over to further destruction should vou not assert yourselves? You ed their ability not only to take care of the interests of their states and their section, but they have been the only dam against aggression at home and the threat of discredit abroad."

I believe firmly that it will do better because it will at once eliminate the factions which are inevitable, so long as their leaders feel that they have on ly to capture a few state organizations in the north, nominate their candidate and thendepejid upon the south to sup port and eject him if possible. And cer tainly no faction can refuse to support a worth v southern candidate in the light of loyalty of the sonth to every EDITOR DANIELS FOR BRYAN. party candidate. But if this course would give southern democrats the recognition they deserve, it will also put them upon their mettle. It will make it necessary for them to insist upon de votion to ideas and principles to avoid, as their character and traditions assure, extreme policies: to keep themselves thoroughly in touch with all the ele ments to be found in a national and progressive party; and be willing to an iticpate and promte all the needs of a great country The contending am bitions ot self-seekers, the claims of in terests purely local, the demands that grow out of popular clamor, the shifty and shifting methods of the demagogue and the agitator all these must be avoided, whether leadership comes rom north or south, east or west. The ideas and tendencies behind these things are typified by the republican party of the present day and no attempt on our part to enter into competition with it can hope to command success or so to restore character to our party that it may again attain power. If we are honest with ourselves, earnest and vigilant in the recognition of those pop ular needs which are both safe and Democratic and regardful ot our own ideas and traditions, we shall ugain be intrusted with power- and we shall be ready for it. When this time comes, the south ought to be, and, indeed, it must be, the one great effective force in bringing about such a happy con- sumation sorely needed if our insti tutions are to endure inviolate.'' 9 The local carpenters union will, pre sent their demands for a nine hour day, commencing . April 1st. Unless their demands are granted, they will go on strike. They demand 9 hours and same wages. Average wage now is $1.75 per day. The great majority of carpenters here are members of the union. - It -is said the contractors are divided as to the advisability of granting the men's demands. .' All AUDITORIUM HOW NECESSARY FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS The Silver Anniversary Wedding of ;Dr. and Mrs. J. W. Waldrop. The silver anniversary wedding of Dr. and Mrs. J. W. Waldrop was an occasion long to be remembered by the 150 guests present, and the number and value of the gifts received, the heartfelt words of congratulation, and the many letters received from out-of-town friends, tes tifies to the popularity of the genial doctor and his ever-youthful wife, who seems to have discovered somewnere the magic spring of perpetual youth. Rev. W. D. Akers, now of Kentucky, who married Dr. Waldrop and his bride 25 years ago, and who formerly held pastorate here, wrote a most beautiful and kindly letter of congratulation. The presents were numerous and beautiful, over 120 different gifts being received, of more than 200 separate articles. The oddest of the collection was a pair of baby shoes, silvered over, the gift of little Theo. Hart. Amongst the mosl prized is a set of silver, com prising coffee pot, tea pot, sugar, cream and spoonholder, presented by stewards and their wives, and Dr, Littaker and his wife, of the Methodist church. Let ters and gifts were received from near ly all over the county There has been more or less agitation of late regarding a building to accommodate large gatherings, conventions, and so on. Such a place could be erected in 'some ' ' ' suitable location, easily accessible, at a very small cost, and Hendersonvllle woul then be in a position to make a strong bid for conventions of any kind. We have unsurpassed hotel accommodations, and Horse Shoe Happenings. I rise to second the suggestion of B. T. M. in last week's paper in reference to the growing sentiment for W. T.

What we do lack is a building large enough to properly house a very large gathering, and the time is now ripe for the agitation of such a proiect. , The auditorium could be built, it is suggested, on the side of a hill, open at the sides, with a great raised plat- form at one end. It being open at the sides would add much to the attractiveness, Miss Nora Morgan is visiting her brother Charles, who is engineer at the Kesilwortfc Inn, Biltmore, N. C.
