On that day all the Democratic speak ers orer the State will give special attention to young men urging them to take their proper place in public service, become students of political questions and enlist in ac tive support of the Democratic party. Many young men in Hen derson county will cast their first vote this year and it is important that they shall begin their political life in the right way. In this connection, we beg to re mind the people that United States Senator Lee S. Overman will ad : dress our people at the court house in Hendersonville on next Satur day about 11 o'clock and to invite the hearty co-operation of all Dem ocrats in securing the attendance of as many young men as possible iron all sections of the county. Senator Overman is a splendid speaker and we should exert an especial effort to give him a large crowd. COL. LUSK REFORMS. v Col. V. S. Lusk is not out in the hushes begging the people to vote - for John G. Grant this year like lie did during tne last campaign. The Colonel seems to have reform ed and is candid enough to ac knowledge it. He wants the whol" kit and bilin' of the new Butler Morehead alignment "whipped to a frazzle" and does not propose play the hypocrite by taking the stump in a half-hearted way. The letter he - recently .wrote to his friend Charlie Reynolds shows an anguish of soul that is pith ble. He stands pat upon a former state ment that the Republican" party in North Carolina "this year has lost its self-respect and sense of Tionor by the adoption of a straddle plank in its state platform pur- - porting to be a declaration tor local self-government, but which is being construed by Marion Butler and Thomas Settle to mean a re opening of the liquor question. Colonel charges bad' faith to his -erst-while political associates and warns republicans to repudiate the effort to deceive them. He says:' "This is the first time in the his or the party that we are called upon to support a measure so bra zenly concttived in fraud and bom of iniquity. You owe it to your uauAf xuniil itvuui IV : L 11 JLAUAJLVSL our party to your self-respect and ' manhood to rebuke this attempt to j dishonor the party by ways that I are dark and tricks that aie vaiu.

You don 't want it to be clothed in the garb of fraud and falsehood. ?yt party has ever succeeded thfat tJ.k the wrong side of a great moral question."- - 5 This looks like the Colonel is outside the breastworks so thor oughly; disguestcd. that there is . little chance of reconciliation. The Asheville correspondent of the News and Observer says of the letter: ;': v::':;; ' 4 The people of Western North Carolina happy now that they are free from the curses of the bar room system are plainly grieved , that the leaders who ; were going to reform the party and make it . self-respecting -have seen fit by their platform- utterances to dis close a semblance of an. alliance, to put it mildly, with the whiskey , trust.

T. SETTLE'S PREDICAMENT. Has Put His Foot Into the Hire Too Far to be Extricated. The Hon. Thoa. Settle, of Ashe- ville, son of a distinguished father from whom he inherited Republi canism with reconstruction embod iment, delivered, a political ad dress in "Wilmington on Saturday I night." His "Wilmington speech government principle, eariaj lit tle f or the "fact that TTilmington had a "local" aspirant in the per son of tha Hon. Iredell Mears who wanted the judgeship for his ."lo caF'selfl ; Failing again in landing 1 a judgeship in a district ia which he did not live and in which rhe was in no way indentified with the people, he had to . haul in his horns and await his chances for some other political browsing. With reference to the-Cape Fear district, he too, like others of the faithful, was sadly among, "the unfitten" who called at the White House but went away with the Taft mark of disapproval. Not to be deterred, however, by-failing to land locally or far locally, he had his application on file for any good thing that was likely to turn up anywhere, not especially local. He finally landed a spe cial United States attorneyship way up in New York, a job which following? belongs to that State, and yet he he loaned his "Caucasian " paper SIMMONS STANDS PAT. Recently Senator F. M. . Sim mons stated in an interview that what Marion Butler wanted to de bate with democrats was whether he betrayed this state in the South Dakota bond matter. Butler, of course, tries to nursuade himself i was one of several he has deliver that, he did not, but leaders of I earn norm aronna wunin tne his own party shake their heads past few weeks.ambng the places in dismav when the subject is I where he has 3sppken being, Ke broached in their presence.

Butler, Repub T? liaii JJUllCi uxixcxijr lu lican candidate for congress, in his fight against Dr. John M. Faison, the Democratic nominee. Mr. Settle gets credit for being an attractive speaker ana nas about him the attributes of an ora tor, which goes very well with men of all, kinds of politics. How ever, North Carolinians know that Lawyer Tom must appear more as the attorney of Republicanism than as its advocate. Therefore, they listen to his oratory but re ject his argument. The Hon Tom during this speaking tour has been laying a good deal of stress upon "local self-government. "( ?) In his speeches Dr. Faison declares Settle is preaching this new, found Republican doctrine, a principle which is. as old as the Democratic party and which the "respectable Republican party" has alleged thinks can be used for two pur poses in this campaign to mis lead some and dupe others. The gifted Tom Settle. is not gifted in the art of practicing the rules of consistency when he goes about preaching' "local s6ff-gov ernment.

Prob discuss is whether he in the mat ter of the bonds betrayed his State. That is not an open ques tion. The evidence of Butler's treachery to the state is as con elusive as the evidence of Bene dict Arnold's treachery to the ccfintry. If Benedict Arnold were alive and here and wanted to deb-ate the question of whether he ad batrayed his country, no one would debate that question with 1.1 Trri ii i .i i ' t ' 1 1 mm. v my men snouia any norm C'arolfna Democrat debate with ' fr Butlor the question of wheth er he had betrayed his state ? The evidenca of treachery is as con clusive in one case as in the other. It is a settled question and not a matter of debate." " It will be seen that the Senator declared that the evidence of But ler's betrayal of the state was as concukive as the evidence of Benedict Arnold's, treachery to his country. The Shelby Aurora, a republican organ; took ercep tion to the position, of Senator Simmons and declared in his last issue; mat Jtsutier is not a traitor, Mr. oimmtns maae: a speeca n V Despite the Aurora, I repeat the charge and I will , enlarge, it. Butler is not only a traitor to Norfh Carolina, bt he has be trayed everybody and every cause he has ever had anything to do with when it was to his intrest to do it. : The Aurora does not seem to know a traitor when it sees him. Butler does. He has lived with one all his life. I now make this offer tfts The Aurora : If the editor will write to Judge Jeter C. Pritchard, ex-United States Sena tor, an'd now Judge ol the United ably some Florida radical beat the Hon. Tom to that principle, called attention to it at Washington and impressed '. the President with the fact that Florida Republicans be lieve so strongly in having local Republicans appointed to Florida political -positions, they did not want any foreign interference on the part of an imported Republi can from away up in North Caro lina. At any rate, Settle failed in pulling any orange blossoms, s his next Conspicuous appea ranee was when he attempted to land the Federal judgeship in the Cape states circuit uourt, and tne ab- Fear district awar down in Ens lst leader the Republican party I tern North Carolina.

Honorable men in South Dakota have apolo gized for the part that State was led by Butler . and Pettigrew to play in that fraud on the state, Butler boasts of his part in the game as a virtue.

Tom han it impresses eastern ' North Carolinans who know how he is violating the rules right along. In the language, of one of our dis tinguished friends, Dr. John M. Faison, of the Third District, "It's, Mr. Settle, we understand vot ed for the suffrage amendment, in 1900 and it was hoped that such manifestation of love for his great native State would reclaim him for his pact affiliations with liis black allies of the Republican ism which North Carolina has en deavored to get rid of by dene- groizingit. However, like the little boy he was worn out his pants, both the knees praying," and." in the seat blacksliding," with the result that he has wound up as a political wet-nurse of Mary Ann and his brother George. Alas, we fear Settle will let the m i... l 1 ilL name oi a distinguisnea iatner pass into oblivion for the lack of a successor who can really keep .up the father's reputation. Thus, the Hon. Thomas Settle, of Asheville, who now has a political job belonging to the State of New York, is a fair sample of latter day "local self-government" (?f North Carolina radical who has not heard that "Maine went hell: bent" to rid itself bfKepubli can scnt. Dr. Faison thinks the lion. Tom had better hurry back to New York. less his local self -govern ment principles may debar him from that office i nNew. York. We can add the further reason that he is wasting his time in his attempt to fool North Carolinians with the idea that local self-government of any kind by the Republican party would justify them in again risk ing the horriljle kind of govern ment given to North Carolina by the Republican party every .'single time it got' into power in this state. Neither local self-government nor any other kind of government, such as miglft be expected from Taft 's tabooed North Carolina Republicanism, is wanted in' the State of North Carolina. Not while Tar Heels are sane.; . ' - - o "BUTLER AND BONDS." to negro domination, to Judge Pritchard and to all the other things, he first espoused and then betrayed down' to this day, what good thingVcan be said of him and what bad thing is worse than the truth?" , This is the" language employed byfHonV E; J.
