C, September 19. Four of "the Medlin family who are "accused of having negro blood in their veins," have stopped the Mount Vernon pub lic school in House Creek township, Wake county, located four miles from Raleigh and this in fact of the fact that both the county, Superior court -and the State supreme court have de cided recently that there no taint cf negro blood in .the Medlin children, according to the evidence produced at the trial of the case in court. The neighbors of the Medlin family think the court does not know itself, or that they know more than -the court.

It is remarkably eloquet, is free from the rhetoric' which sometimes, hamp ers his utterances is on a high plane, and moves to its points with a straight forward clarito and force which mark it as the work of a past-master of style and a political strategist of ttye highest order.

Besides it Mr Hughes' speeches shrink to smaller dimensions than ever, vhile Mr Roosevelt's vituperative bitterness aP pears merely the vulgar roaring of a corner politician. Nothing sO far, said or done since thio campaign began ap proaches it. If Mr. Hughes cannot rise to its breadth of vision, or it; power, his will be a difficult position indeed. If any Republican has be lieved that Mr. Wilson would be an ea$y antagonist, he must be undeceiv ed now. "Butit is not merely the brilliancy or the . form which makes the Presi dent's speech so staggering a broad side. Its force comes in large part from the Democratic record of achieve ments. One may dissent vigorously from Mr. Wilson's view of the value of much of what has been done by congress and its wisdom, as the Even ing Post does, but one must admit that rarely if ever in our political history have so many pre-electon promises been fulfilled. As Mr. Wilson points out, the roll of the party's' achieve ments sounds more like a platform of pledges than the story of what has actually been accomplished. He might have added ahat if there had been no critical foreign issues to distract pop ular attention, and give a handle to his adversaries, the extent of this leg islative achievement would be univer sally recognized. No self-respecting republican dares in this campaign to utter the old slander that the Demo cratic party is without constructive ability or the power to enact its poli cies into law. - . ."Morc than that, Mr. Wilson on the foreign issues yields not an inch of ground. Confessing that he has made mistakes itself a noteworthy admis sion from a man so selfwijled, self-sufficient, and obstinate he none the less sticks to his guns with an aggressive ness that cannot fail to tell. Here are confidence, and no- to Mexico. His as to Huerta he re- iterates with the announcement that if re-elected he will be actuated by precisely the same principles which guided him in warring upon that "un speakable" dictator. No one can ac cuse him of either "pussyfooting" or compromising on this question. If there are those who do not like the policy which Mr. Wilson has mapped out, he serves notice to them that their course is clear. By the side of M Hughes apparently cold-blooded in difference to the sufferings, the liber tics, and the welfare of the Mexican people, it is refreshing indeed to have Mr. Wilson remind this country that despite the indefensible Vera Cruz blunder, and the needlessly, prolong ed "pursuit" of Villa, we have as a nation lived up to the American be lief that "the people of small and weak states have the right to be dealt with exactly as the people of big and powerful states would be." And on the question of what is to come after the war, Mr. Wilson's reiteration of his position that the 'nationg of th? world must unite in joint guarantees that whatever is done to disturb the whole world's life must first be tested in the court of the whole world's opin ion before it is attempted," is go ex plicit that tt may be counted on to widen the far reaching ripples created in the embattled nations by his speech before the League to Enforce Peace. By contrast with Mr. Hughes' banal treatment of the subject. Mr. Wilson shines like a planet in the heavens." Dr. W. H. Vander Lindeii DENTIST Holmes building over Maxwell Cash grocery !

The suc ceeding year it got feverishly busy and did it again. This year there is a dis tinct retrocession. The wheat croo this year is estimated at 280.000,000 bushels less than last year's, or about 12 pe'r cent. This is enough to ac count for the sharp rise in prices. Iost of the world's wheat loss is ac counted for right here in the United States, which has about 250,000,000 Nevertheless, the world's crop is larger than the. average for the five years preceding the war. The fact seems tp be that the withdrawal of vast numbers of peoplefrom ordinary industry, to fight, learn to fight, make munitions and supplies, is now telling on supplies. There are likely to be two years more of war, according to the authorities, though some think a year may finish it. It will require a long time after peace to redistribute the workers . to the most efficient resumption of nor mal activities. So it may reasonably be assumed that- there will be two years more of wad demand-and prfces, and after that a year, two years, or more of high prices. Farm and Fire PHONE 60 V DR.
