TO RE-OPEN LIQUOR
QUESTION
The following from the Ashe
vflle Gazette-News of November
11, indicates the position of re
publican leaders on the temper
ance question and bears this
newspaper but in the charge that
"the republican party is the
liquor party and longs to return
to its flesh pots." Listen, if you
please: . -
"Hon. Thomas Settle, lately republi
can candidate for presidential elector-at-large
from North Carolina, is at
home enjoying a rest after a strenu
ous campaign in which he figured ex
tensively. Mr. Settle made many
speeches during the campaign, espec
ially in the Fifth district. During the
campaign Mr. Settle made a brilliant
fight on the question of local self-
f overnment and purposes carrying the
ghtinto the legislature. Mr. Settle
declared after the election "that if the
k members of the legislature are not
forced to make a stand on the ques
tion of local self government it will
not be the fault of the republicans.
They must stand to the rack, fodder
or no fodder. We will draw a bill that
will be submitted at the proper time
and in the proper way."
"During the campaign Mr. bettle
made it clear from the stump how the
republicans stood on this proposition.
He referred to the fact that "our last
platform declared that we stood as we
had stood, and I just quoted the planks
of previous platforms, which specifi
cally criticised the Watts law and the
Ward law, which do not live up to
local self-government declarations
made by the democrats.'
"The next legislature meets in Jan
uary and if the plan outlined by Mr.
Settle is carried out it is evident that
there will be an interesting fight on
'local self government' during the
session of the general assembly.'
So the agitators will continue
to agitate, even in the face of
more than 44,000 majority re
corded last May against the
manufactnre and sale -of intoxi
cating liquors in North Carolina.
But they want to return to their
'flesh pots" and play a little
politics besides. Encouraged by
the recent slump of the demo
cratic vote, in "wet" counties,
It is proposed to harrass the
legislature with the proposition
to re-open this troublesome ques
tion under the petty suggestion
of 4 'local self - government, ' '
-without even giving the prohi
bition law a fair trial. Demo
crats, beware! The people have
spoken and their verdict must
le respected. The Asheboro
Courier speaks truthfully in an
extended discussion . of the
scheme proposed. It says, in
part
"There are those who opposed the
submission of the question of prohibi
tion to the people of the entire State:
-arVtn -fnvnTefi 1ftrislative enactment At
iiie approaching session of the Gen
eral Assembly bills will be introduced
submitting the question of sale and
manufacture of liquor to a vote of
any county upon a petition of a ma
jority of its qualified voters. These
bills will be introduced by republican
members and in the face of the fact
that the State gave a majority of
lorty-four thousand on the 26th of
last May for State-wide prohibition.
Every thinking man who will lay
aside prejudice and personal interest
will say that the new prohibition law
should be given a iair niai, anu
f ood citizens should unite in an ef
ort to enforce the law fairly and
impartially, firmly but not harshly.
The law goes into effect January 1st.
The Legislature will adjourn ' by
larch 10th, within a few more days
-han two months after the new law
becomes operative. It would oe wrong
in principle, and the worst politics
imaginable for the democratic party
to permit any general or special leg
islation that would materially alter
er change the result decided so over
whelmingly by the people in the May
election. '
: The principle of local self
government is not involved in
the prohibition law, as we see it.
Every elector in the State was
given the opportunity of ex
pressing his opinion at the bal
lot box upon the question and by
an overwhelming vote the people
decided in favor of temperance,
A number of counties gave ma
jorities against the ratification of
the bill, just'as some of them
"went" republican at the late
election, yet, the people of the
entire State acquiesce In the re
sult and Mr. Kit chin will be the
governor of republicans, as well
as democrats. The so-called is
sue raised by Mr- Settle, concern
ing "local self-government," if
carried to its logical conclusion,
would necessitate another election
for State officers, because the
democratic candidates failed to
receive a majority of the vote
cast in some counties. However
the Teonslatiire is eroiner to do the
wise thing by "letting well
enough alone, settle or no settle.
Editor TT G. Cobb, of the Mor
ganton Herald, wants to be prin
cipal clerk of the House for the
incoming session of the General
Assembly and stands an excel
lent chance of winning, Mr.
F. D. Hacket, who has filled the
position to the entire satisfaction
of the members during the past
six years, announces that he will
not stand for re-election and is
supporting Mr. Cobb, (if we are
correctly informed) which means
that the Morgan ton man has a
"fine show" for the place. Mr.
Cobb has long been associated
with Mr. Hackett in conducting
the affairs of the principal clerk's
office and would make a capable
and acceptable successor to his
former chief. While the Hust
ler opposed Brother Cobb's can
didacy for Commissioner of Lab
or and Printing last summer it
has not the slightest objection to
his election to the position he
now desires. He is a good man
and has experience to back his
ability.
The ratification of the prohibi
tion law aUhe May election ap-
pears to have lulled temperance
advocates into a state of inactivi
ty, and the liquor "forces have
been doing everything in their
power to make the measure un
popular in the hope of getting
the Legislative to re-open the
issue. One method employed
is the encouragement of blind
tigerism, which ..is already ram
pant in some sections of theState
where the sale of liquor has been
forbidden: by a vote of the peo-
"nle in local oDtion elections. In
Ashevilfe, for instance, . the law
is openly and flagrantly violated,
so much so, in fact, that the
good people over there are tip in
arms in an earnest endeavor to
crush out the evil. Judge Ward
has eriven "road sentences" to
some of the offenders and the
city authorities say the fight has
just begun. Strict enforcement
of the law is the only hope for
the temperance people and they
ought to give faithful officials
every encouragement.
The "Fifth District Combine,"
if, indeed, any such "critter"
ever existed, appears to have
played in hard luck at the recent
election. That district loses to
the democracy a representative
in congress, two senators and
three members in the lower
branch of our State legislature.
.looks HKe a reorganization may
be advisable.
It is said that ex-Lieutenant
Governor Doughton aspires to
the speakership of the House.
He is a good man, but having al
ready had this honor it would be
only fair for him to reman in the
ranlcs and let it go to one of the
other deserving men whose can
didacy7 was announced in these
columns last week, DowdV Gra
ham and Hayes. Governor
Doughton has a habit of "doing
the handsome" and we are in
clined to the opinion that he will
not make an exception in this in
stance.

This is one Sheriff Williams
tells.

spending a week at Salola Inn
this summer. Tasting the honey
on the table the lady remarked:
"Oh, Mr. Williams what deli
cious honey. I suppose you keep
a bee?"

KEEP HISTORY STRAIGHT.
I notice an item, copied from
the Hustler, is going the rounds
of the press claiming'for me the
distinction of being the only man
ever elected to a State office from
the section comprising the coun
ties: . situated "West of the
Ridge." .This is erroneous and
the impression, doubtless, grew
out of the fact that I received
the solid vote bf the counties re
ferred to on . the ballot which
gave me the nomination for
Commissioner of Labor and
Printing in the Democratic State
Convention. It was said at the
time that no other candidate for
a State office had been thus fav
ored before.
Our section has furnished the
State a Chief Justice of the Su-
reme Court, a United States
enator, 1 Lieutenant Governor,
two Attorney Generals and a
Corporation Commissioner that
I now recall and we are going to
name the governor in 1912.

Raleigh, Nov. 21, 1908:
Close Presidential Gontests.
As a rule. Presidential contests
for the past fifty years, have not
been close. The one notable ex
ception to the rule was the elec
tion of 1876, when Hayes had
185 and Tilden 184 electoral
votes." The next closest margin
was in 1884, when Cleveland had
219 and Blaine 182, giving Cleve
land a plurality of 37.' In that
election New York would have
turned the balance, and Blaine
lost it by a few hundred votes.
In 1880 Garfield's majority over
Hancock was 95, and in ' 1888
Harrison defeated Cleveland by
65, Cleveland came back in 1892
with a majority of 132. In 1896
McKinley defeated Bryan fey a
majority of 95, and in 1900 by
137.
The most one-sided election
was in 1864, when Lincoln t had
212 to McClellan's 21. Then it
was Grant 286, Greeley 4 and
the next big majority was when
Roosevelt had 336 and Parker
