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
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

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.
Did he not promise us in 1900 tha.
good government should follow Dem
ocratic victory? Did he rxt In him iu

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

same to the fact that the right crowd

bit of sad information;

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,

picture of each member of the

Williams, manufacturer of old

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,
