William Jennings Bryan has made for the presidency by nt means eliminates him as a po litical factor in this country, or removes the needed reforms he , , il VII- advocates irom me puouc eye. He is yet the great orator, the matchless debater, the real re former, the high-toned Chris tian gentleman and true friend of those who toil that has crown ed the efforts of his useful life lor the past twelve years. Many of the reforms he has advocated have been written into law and future generations will enjoy the benefit of his labors as a bene factor of the race. Like Clay, Webster and Calhoun, neither of iwhom reached the height of his ambition, Mr. Bryan's name will "appear in history among the greatest statesmen of his time. He stands for the people and not for himself alone. Listen to TrUnf Vk tins r qov In his HflTWr concering the result of the recent contest i "As for myself, let no one worry about my future. The holding of office is a mere incid ent in the life of those who are devoted to reforms. The reform is the essential thing. If one can advance reforms by holding office, then the holding of office is justifiable; if one can rbest advimrp reforms as a private citizen, then the holding of office is undesira ble. The world owes me noth ing; I have been abundantly com pensated for what I have been able to do. My life will not be long enough to repay the people for their support, and for the confidence which they have ex pressed. My gratitude to those with whom I have labored sur passes language, and the days of the future will be devoted to work in the interest of the peo ple as I understand that interest, and in behalf of those reforms which seem to me to be the best. I invite the co-operation of those who approve, and I shall not be deterred by the criticism of those who disapprove. With an abid ing taith in the triumph of the truth and an unfaltering confi dence in the righteousness f our cause, I speak this word of en couragement to those who call themselves friends. I shall keep step with them and march on. The measure of our work cannot be taken in a day. If we are right, as I believe we are, it will vindicate us; if we contribute, as I believe we are contributing to a cause that is founded in justice, our efforts will weigh in the fin al victory." "Yea, though thou lie. down upon the dust, i When- they who helped thee flee in fear, ' EJDie full of hope and manly 2fet trust, Like those who fall in battle here. Another hand thy sword shall wield, Another hand the standard wave, L&Till from the trumpet's mouth 1S pealed, The blast of triumph o'er thy grave." DHIOCMCY'SFUTUREWOHiL The duty of the- democracy of Henderson county, the tenth con gressional district and. the State I at large is perfectly plain. Re cent election results should serye as a warning to individual mem bers of the party who-would per mit serious divisions in the ranks in order to attain prominence for themselves. If success is to crown ; our efforts at the next election, we must exercise a spirit of broad-mindedness and be willing to make personal sacri fices for the sake of harmony and good feeling among ourselves. UnpopularVleaders, if there are such to be round, should- volun tarily retire and take their places in the ranks, if by so doing the party may be strengthened and thex organization hela in tact. The friends ; of no particular candi date, or faction issue, or condi tion should employ offensive eDithets with reference to the outcome of the political contest recently- concluded. We must put aside everything that would offend and get together as "of yore. . The continued advancement of North Carolina, along the lines of solbriety, morality, education and industrial progress, depends up'on a continuance of the demo cratic party of the State in pow er. This conclusion is justified by years of successful rule to which it points with pride. Whenever the democracy has been in charge of the State gov ernment a feeling of peace and security has prevailed, and con trary conditions have always) characterized republican admin istrations in North Carolina. Then why should wrangling over false issues, or the personal am bitions of would-be-leaders be permitted to enter into party councils and threaten division that might result in serious harm to the organization which has saved the State from degrada tion time and time again. Let the wisest heads get together and perfect plans for a signal victory two years hence. We can and must retrieve every inch of territory that has been lost and take pos session of qther "domains" yet unconquorecfc This fall's election has much encouragement in it for demo crats. Of course we regret the defeat of The Great Commoner, but there is consolation in know ing that more than a million votes has been gained. This is not bad, by any means, and if we keep up the fight, right will prevail at no distant day. In the State, the party has experi enced a reduced popular majori ty, but has held its own surpris ingly well considering the open antagonism of anti-prohibition advocates "and some other local disturbances which entered into the fight. However the major ity for the democratic State tick et is more than 37,500 and the Legislature overwhelmingly dem ocratic. The tenth district held its own better than any other portion of the State, where there was a fight on, and will be redeemed tworears hence. Here in Henderson county we made a gallant fight and, as Con gressman Crawford well says, "did as well as any county in the district." v Our fighting- demo crats are the finest in the- world and the small majorities of the republican candidates for county offices gives rise to the. hope. that even Henderson" county furnishes good battle ground for the demo cratic" party. The republican bosses experienced great' difficul ty, for many weeks, in getting their votes enthused and were compelled - to employ methods which clearly indicated their des- Eeration. But, with brass ands barbecues,; . deceptive speakers and simular tactics, they finally succeeded in corraling the vote which,x with and increased registration in their favor,, gave them a popular majority.' But we must not quit fighting. It is a long lane that never turns." Now to work and to win. Let's crush out anyspirit of malice 'or jealousy that may have crept in to our midst and get together for a signal victory at the next elec tion, v Hon. W. ,C. Dowd, of . Char lotte, ex-Judge A. W. Graham, of Granville, and Hon. R. H. Hayes, of Chatham, are all avowed candidates for Speaker of the House. All are good men and the interests of the, State will not suffer in the hands of either. It is a pity that air of them cannot win. 4 v The letter of Congressman Crawford appearing elsewhere should bring a feeling .t of cheer to all of his friends. He always submits cheerfully to the, result of a political (jontest and never tries to steal honors which righ ly belong to another. The world would be better if there were many more men like WT. Crawford. The tenth district sends eleven democratic representatives to the General Assembly this year and seven republicans, being precise ly the same representation of the two parties from this district in the Legislature of 1907. And in passing we may say that Hen derson county democrats contri bute one of the members this time. It is apparent, therefore, that the "cylclone" did not hit us as hard up here in the mountains as was at first anticipated. Bun combe lost a Senator arid Hen derson "makes it good." Our hat is off to the splendid little county of Clay, which made the finest showing for democracy, according tov population, of any county in this district at the re cent election. And staunch old Haywood is not to be sneered at. She alway "comes to ? the scratch. ' ' Henderson, Polk, Transylvania, McDowell . and Swain acquitted themselves splendidly, but the slump in Bun combe, Jackson, Cherokee, Ruth erford, Graham and Macon could not be overcome. 'Twas sur prising in Buncombe and Cher okee. But maybe they will do better next time. rui lis ml (gaily mm Did you know that nine-tenths of the lard - you buy is. made from uany old" part of tlie hog, according to the public admission of the leading lard packer?
