a irate FROM
Editor of the Hustler:
I take this opportunity to thank
every democrat in the Tenth dis
- trict who did what he could to
sustain the cause of. democracy
at the recent election. . While
we have been defeated, the party
13 neither disorganized norv dis
couraged, and, in my judgment,
.the district will take its place in
the democratic column at the
next election. The los of the
Tenth district by the narrow
margin fcof 355 should not sur
prise us when we consider that
the Fifth district, which gave
Mr. Kitchin more than 5,000 ma
jority two years ago, has been
transferred to the republican
column, and the Eighth district,
with a majority of 1, 500 two
years ago, has elected a republic
can by a majority oj-1,600. The
causes and influences which
operated in the overthrow of
those districts also entered as
elements to supplant us in the
Different,causes have contrib
uted to our defe&t. The pro
gressive legislation of the last
general assembly along certain
lines was not satisfactory, to
L - J
many, ana-was misrepresented
and misunderstood by others, to
the prejudice ofthe democratic
party. And bogus and false is
sues were raised on other ques
tions and especially on wood
pulp, lumber and news print
paper which doubtless lost us
some votes. In addition, there
was not entire harmony and one
ness of purpose among democrats
iri some of the counties on local
matters, which is apparent after
the smoke has cleared away.
But these things cannot con
tinue. If our theory of govern
ment is correct, the people have
the wisdom to discover truth and
falsehood and have the integrity
and manhood to accept the truth
and repudiate the error.
The party in the district has
not lost, but gained voces. The
election returns will show that
the vote is larger by 1,500 to
2,000 than at any election since
1900. It will also appear that
Mr. Taft's majority over Mr.
Bryan is several hundred more
than Mr. Grant's over me, ami
that my vote is substantially the
same as the state and local tick
ets. I bave no complaint to make or
criticism tox)ffer. When the ver
dict of the people is rendered, I
am content. But my faith in the
ultimate triumph of the princi
ples of. democracy is unshaken;

Shot by Son of Ex-Congress

Vaucrhn in this city were shock-
ed to. learn of his tragic death at day and shoved up his subsenp
the hands of "Jim" Moody, son tion a most excellent example
of Ex-Congressman Moody: on which we trust will be followed
the streets of Waynesville last by many hundreds of our sub-
Thursday nicrht.
According to an eye witness,
Moody and Vaughn, between
whom it is said, bad feelings had
existed for some time, met on
Main street. Vaughn, itris said,
called Moody to him, telling the
. latter that he, (Vaughn), wished
i to apologize for having insulted
Moody some time ago. It is said
