Winston-Salem, July 26. Mr.
A. H.Eller, who was elected chair
man of the Democratic executive
cammittee Thursday night, re
turned to the city yesterday af
ternoon from Raleigh. Mr. El
ler stated in an interview that
the keynote of the Democratic
State campaign would be sound
ed in the speech of Hon. W. W:
Kitchin in Rockingham county
August 3d, but the work of the
Democratic execut ive committee
will not begin in earnest until
after the Republican State, con
vention, which will be ; held in
Charlotte, August 26th.
Mr. Eller will leave the last of
the week for Raleigh to .appoint
an advisory committee of ten

The chairman would person

quarters in Winston-Salem, his
home, but he finds that it would
not be practical because the rec
ords, files, papers, etc., which
will have to be consulted of ten,
are in Raleigh. Then, .too, the
advisory committee will be there
and Raleigh can be more easily
reached by the candidates.
However, Mr. Eller will return
home once a week during the
Mr. Eller says the prospects
for a Democratic majority this yea
are exceedingly encouraging. He
finds hopeful indications wher
ever he goes. He says that if
the Democrats display the zeal
during the next few months that
they did during the campaign
for nomination, the party will
poll an even larger majority than
Ay cocfc or Glenn. He thinks the
Republicans will without doubt
wage a strictly defensive fight
this year, for they have made a
record of which no party would
be proud, and which cannot stand
for a moment against a determin
