He heard onP fellow sav in J. D. Boyd tells this one. It was when he was nominated as his own successor. The people have won in a testvote over an element of the very rich plu tocracy that filled the treasure of the Hughes campaign managers to over flowing with their "donated" millions which they thought would be well Reinvested." On the other hand comes the an nouncement that Wilson's managers were compelled to borrow $400,000 in excess of what they received through the manifold contributions of the average Democrat who is not rich. I The American electorate could not be bought. That is the most magnifi cent declaration found in the result cf this election - and " ' ur hearts sw?li with gladness" when we name ztic fact. It is a declaration worthy to stand alongside that of the immortal 1776, and every honest man in North America should have enough Jeffer ros'a tlood in him to be exceedingly proud of it. So great a victory has never been achieved by any man or rortical party since the foundation of the Reoublic. wua ui misrepresentation.

The rascal who put about a peck of Republican vote on the McLemore res- j roofing tacks on Main street the night of the Wilson celebration evidently thought he would catch only Demo cratic automobiles. But the trap caught some pretty good Republican machines and its about an even bet who did the most cussing. Carroll P. Rogers, defeated candi date for legislature covered about 'as much ground throughout the county in the same length of time as any can didate in Henderson county. While out in the sticks Mr. Rogers found one olution; he talked about bread lines and unemployment," and blamed the , Underwood-Simmons tariff for condi tions that were world-wide. And then, there was the "fairness' of Teddy, the "truthfulness" of Lodge and other radical spell-binders, who I did not hesitate to discredit the coun try in the eyes of the world for parti san advantage. To be sure, the Colo nel is a privileged character and no rule of reason applies to him, but when Senator Lodere. advance fill tfl w - V& A charges as that concerning a postscript j man wfao was going to vote for Roose. to the Lusitania note, and used the , velt for president.

Mr. Hughes did anything but "tote fair," and he richly deserved the lick ing he get.

"" In conclusion Mr. Fraser said he was so glad to see so many dowi at the depot "IS meet him and his, party and that he was delighted with the 1 welcome he received. - - ' ; He introduced Col. B. W. Jewen, wno spoke interestingly on what the order was accomplishing, and old of how the money received was nanaiea m umu ha how so. much was set aside for a reserve fund, so much for general ex penses, etc. Colonel Jewell delighted his hearers. r - ) At the close of the meeting Mr. Fra ser arose and presented Mr. .Grant with a. handsome fountain pen, to pub lie recognition' of the good wofk Mr. Grant has been and is accomplishing in Hendersonville and Western North Carolina in securing new members' for the order, expressing, the hope-that Mn 'Grant. rwduld "wear the pen ou writing new applications The meeting was then - dismissed with prayer by Rev. Mr. Simpson. After the speaking a delightful ban quet was served at the Kentucky Home, attended by nearly a hundred Woodmen and their friends. B. W. Ewbank was toastmaster of the occa sion and after the guests had partook of the bountiful repast such as the Kentucky Home is famous for, called on the speakers, all responding In a most hearty manner. The first man called on was Harry Roberts of Fletcher, state organizer for the Knights of Pythias. Mr. Rob erts, though not a Woodman, spoke highly of the order and expressed his intention of sometime becoming a member. E. B. Lewis spoke on "Western North Carolina and Woodmen Encamps ments." W. A, Smith, who has always held the interests of Hendersonville near to his heart, told of the need of a golf course here, and how if the town would get together and say "we will do it," instead of saying "you do it," a golf course would be realized soon. Mr. Smith f& an honorary mem ber of the Woodmen of the World, and is probably the first man in the United States to be-taken into the lodge as an honorary member. Colonel Jewell responded in a most gracious .maner. The first time tMs gentleman came south was in 1862 as a soldier in the Union army. Then as is the case now, to use his own words, he got an exceedingly warm reception. ; R. M. Oates. in his toast, told of the growth of Hendersonville, and propos ed that a movement be started in North Carolina that would spread far arid wide, until the head of the lodge in Omaha would be induced to buy the Noterman property here, convert It into a public park to be called Fraser Park, and erect therein a memorial to the founder of the order. Joseph Cul len Root, who died here December 24, 13. Mr. Fraser, being called upon for another . speech, again stressed the need of a golf course for Henderson ville, and was of the opinion that it would be a paying investment. He re iterated his promise that if a golf course was built here he would send a number of golf fanatics down from Omaha every summer. Brownlow Jackson, our next repre sentatives In the state legislature, was the last called upon, and put it some thing like this: "I was over at Ashe. ville today and came back on the same train Mr. Fraser came to Henderson ville on. Not knowing of his visit. I thought the band and the great crowd at the depot were there to meet me. and was disappointed when they paid no attention to my presence but seem ecLto be interested in some ether per sons. Coming on up town I heard, that there was to be a speaking at the auditorium and went there fully con vinced that I would hear that Hughes was elected president, and being dir apointed again, how in the name of all that's good and holy do you expect me to make a speech tonight." Company A, Uniform Rank Wood men of the World, of Asheville, was here in uniform and acted as honor ary escort to Mr. Fraser.. Mr. Fraser and party left on the early morning train today for Spartanburg, S. C, where they will speak this afternoon and night. P. S. Will there be any Republican Party for Teddy to lead in 1920?
