MBSMIrTIMtATH. mm Twr, . 91AO Urn Mottkt, . 0 Tkra Moatka. . 85 IXJKSGOOD OOVKItX MENT I'ME VK.YTOR PROMOTE CHIME It Is, we believe, prenerally conceded that crime Is Increasing Id North Car olina to an alarming extent. Indeed. If tbe record of newspapers Is to be believed the year 1902 is the blackest page In the civil history of the State with two exceptions, the first being that brief period of the year 1898. known as the Wilmington massacre period, the other being the first quar ter of the present year. We read that Superior court for trial of criminal cases Is now In ses sion at Wilmington with the heaviest docket In the history of the county; not less than 100 cases being set for trial. Two hundred and eighty-five homi cides In the year 1902 is North Caro lina's quota. "A fearful Increase over past years," as the State papers put it, while the Washington Post ob serves that "perhaps the accumula tion of murder caBea may cause North Carolina people to Insist upon ade quate punishment for those gentlemen who go about pumping cold lead Into their neighbors." Hear also the Wil mington Messenger In the following significant wail: "To what length is this wanton taking of human life to extend? Two more homicides were re ported In yesterday's Messenger. Con ditions In this State are becoming be yond endurance. What Is the matter with our people? Has human life no value In the eyes of mankind? Our entire populace seems to have gone mad on the subject of homicide. The conditions are appalling. Society has become honey-combed with the pistol In his hip pocket." Again hear the Morning Post In the following unique, but melancholy sup plication: "May the good Lord stay the passions of our people! Five or six homicides within almost as many weeks." A gentleman of prominence stated to the writer that within a radius of 30 miles with Klnston as the center ten murders have been committed within three years and not one of the slayers has been punished, and these were notably, white men's affairs. No negro in it. With the ad vent of the good government promised by Simmons and Aycock the white man has monopolized the business of killing In that neck of the woods. A leading State dally says: "The spirit of Cain seems to be possessing men In North Carolina today. Ken tucky has the name of the "dark and bloody ground,' and we Instinctively think of her as that State where men go armed, but North Carolina has out Kentuckeyed Kentucky." Under the caption, "Increase of Crime," the Warrenton Record pro ceeds to take issue with Judge Brown who in his recent charge to the grand Jury at Nashville, attributed the in crease In crime to foreign immigra tlon. The Record very sensibly argues that in such States as New York and Texas Brown's statement might hold good, but not so In North Carolina where foreigners are few and seldom in evidence, and yet the editor adds that there were over one' fourth as many homicides in North Carolina as in Texas and half as many as, in the great State of New York. - Anent the deplorable conditions now existing, the Democratic bible The News and Observer, gives vent editorially to the Jeremiad which fol lows: "However it may be in North era States which have received a large Influx of Immigrants from abroad, the Increase in crime in North Carolina cannot be charged up to foreign imml gration. It has been committed by folks who were born here and are the children of North Carolinians for gen erations. It is a pity that we cannot saddle it off upon some other people. So upon what would seem to 'be the very highest Democratic authority the record is simply awful, and grow lng worse at a rapid rate of increase under munificent Democratic rule, and what Is worse there is no Bcape goat, upon whom to saddle the responsibili ty. The saddling business will not work. Not foreigners not Yankees No, not even the poor negroes can longer be made to bear the sins of these worthy scions of mob ridden Tar Heel aristocracy. No the people have coma to themselves to the extent 'that ust any kind of a lie will not go, and blood. Our beloved native red-chlrted Tar Heels at whose door tbe Iniquity lies. We have sown the wind and are reaping the whirl-wind, the legitimate fruits of the seed sown in 1S98 and lWO by men now high In authority. In view of all tbe foregoing the question arisen does good government prevent or promote crime? Accord ing to our distinguished governor viewed either as prophet or apostl-j we have good government in North Carolina. 0 Did he not promise us in 1900 tha. good government should follow Dem ocratic victory? Did he rxt In him iu a.jgural address in depicting the hor rors of fusion rule say: "Lawlessness walked the State like a pestilence, crime stalked abroad at noonday, bleep we cannot "saddle off upon" the poor negro everything ugly as in days gone by, but are forced to face the music Sunday Ine of tbe Charlotte Cb-1 - or ah no w i Bervet contained several photographs of humanity cholera Lithe worst, of a petrified man found near Hen- j Treatment to he effective mart be deroovIlle this State, by two Vt- , Wbeo "S ,, . . and sweat announce that the dueam ditchers.

Did he not use these glittering phrases as de scriptive of a reign of terror a ad law- essness which he attributed to the fact that the wrong crowd held the offices? And did not this self same governor stump the State in 1902 stating every where that North Carolina was eujoy- ng peace and prosperity unprecedent ed in her annals and attribute the same to the fact that the right crowd now held tne oinces: ine governor must in the nature of things be high authority. No one can question that, and in view of all the Tacts herein noted it must follow as the night the day, reasoning from cau3c to effect, that good government intensifies hu- . ir ii man depravity ana aggravates u n does not actually breed crime. of the basest and most diabolical type. They state that it U, or was a white man. It U stated that one woman has appeared upon the pcene and claimed the petrified man as her husband. If this wife cau be in duced to get a divorce on the ground that this man has a "heart of stone," and of desertion it would be well to bring him to the State Museum that the people East might see and believe. The News and Observer dated March 20th contained the following bit of sad information; "The debt of $200,000 due by the State to the Park National Bank of New York was due yesterday. The bank continued the loan for sixty days, as it has been impossible for the State Treasurer to have the $300,000 bond Issue prepared," The question is will the State j Treasurer be prepared to pay tliU j guaranteed by all Druggist. $200,000 debt m 60 days. If not. then when? Our State debt will soon be so large we will not be able to raise enough money to pay interest on the debt much less the principle. This Is some of the fruits of Demo Democratic "good government." Do you want more of it?

Overwork, loss of sleep, nervous tension will be followed by utter collapse, unless a reliable remedy is immediately employed. There's nothing so effi cient to cure disorders of the Liver or Kidneys as Electric Bitters. It's a wonderful tonic, and effective nervine and the greatest all 'around medicine for run down systems. It dispels Nervouaness, Hheumatism and Neuralgia and satisfaction The 1901 Legislature promised the old soldiers that they should all re ceive pensions and that some of those who were then drawing pensions should draw even larger pensions. The Legislature made a big bluff to make the old soldier think they had kept their promise. They voted to give the old soldiers more appropriations, but failed to provide the funds and when the old soldier came to draw his mon ey mere was not more tnan nan enough money in the treasury to pay the pensions, and some of the poor and needy old soldiers received none at all. This proved that the Demo-J crats cared for the Confederate soldier until they got his vote then it mat tered not to them what became of him. This last Legislature had the oppor tunity of voting for two Confederate veterans for U. S. Senator, but turned a deaf ear to both of them. Not that the Senatorship was any fight of ours, but we mentioned the action of the Legislature in regard to Mr. Carr and Mr. Watson simply to show their gross inconsistency. DEMOCRATIC AND AURISTOCKA- TIC WHISKEY. The News and Observer issued a "Legislative .Edition" on last Sunday giving the biography and picture of each member of the .Legislature. Home ot tnese men are great, but none so great as Glen Williams, manufacturer of old "Nick whiskey." The Observer devoted nearly half a page of its paper Sunday telling what fine whiskey Williams made, and its Democratic and Auristocratic whis key too. It will be remembered the recent Legislature incorporated the little town of Williams so Mr. Williams could make democratic auristocratic whiskey at the same old place. It was charged by some of the democrats during the last campaign that not a single distillery was operated according to law, Mr. Williams, who by the way is a member of the State Democratic executive committee, was made mayor of tbe town of Williams, To whom does the editor of the Biblical Recorder refer as the "Morally Stunted?" A woman asks a man's advice so that later on she can tell him how little he knew. TRAGEDY AVERTED "Just in the nick of time our little boy was saved" writes Mrs. W. Watkins of Pleasant City, Ohio, "Pneumonia had played sad havee with him and a terrible cough set in besides. Doctors treated him, but he grew worse every day.
