Mr. SeKms urges the re- I election of Mr. Morehead as State lite Chairman and the nomination of Mr. ja' Settle for Gotercor. We heartily concur that Mr. More bead should by all moan agree to serve the party again am chairman and the party will certainly call up on him to do so. Mr. Settle would make a brilliant canvass and an able Governor. But we believe that Mr. Morehead Is the logical candidate for Governor this year.

It la kaowa that the Charlotte Ob server is very friendly to Senator Simnoas. and yet the alert Washing ton correspondent of that pajnrr fail ed to hear of the great aad notable public aerrice which Senator Simmons had rendered hU country on the day before. It is worth something to a candidate to have an organ that will not only be alert and publish tnj aad everything that ttl help Ut can didate, but especially to have an or gan with a fertile imagination and a capacity to magnify mole hills into mountains. The following is one extract from that special Washington letter: "Senator Simmons, as rank ing member of the committee, and as the prospective chairman. has been conspicuous in all the hearings, the North Carolina Senator having succeeded in drawing out Charles H. Schwab, the great steel magnate. In such a manner as to throw some ex ceedingly interesting side-lights on the tariff as relates to the steel industry." How could any organ or booster beat that?

Congressman Godwin has given out an interview to' the press explaining a bill he has introduced in Congress to "end gambling in cotton and other farm products." The headlines to the interview attracted our attention and so we read the interview, only to find that the proposed law would not stop gambling in cotton futures, nor evn attempt to stop it, "except tnose who are engaged in unadulterated gambling." Of course, under this proposed law adulterated gambling in cotton and farm products will be le gal. This reminds us of the bill intro duced in Congress by Representative Webb to prevent the shipment of li quor into dry territory. When the first news of Congressman Webb's bill was sent broadcast over the land, the real prohibitionists thought they had a solution of the liquor problem, as well as a friend in Congressman Mr. Morehead is the Governor, should certainly go to the east. The battle-ground of the Republi can party, in order to win a victory, is in the counties east of Ruieigh. In many of these counties the Republi can party is still very weak, due to having been dominated by the old referee patronage machine system, which was a close corporation and did not want recruits. Some few of these counties are still dominated by the. remnants of that old machine, and under their leadership the party never has grown and never will grow j except when the masses of the people rise up and run over the professional pie-counter fellows. However, there is not a single one of these counties in which the Repub lican party is any weaker to-day than it used to be in Sampson County. Sampson County was at one time one of the strongest Democratic counties in the State. Under the leadership of men like Mr. V. F. Sessoms, the nresent alert and efficient county chairman, it has come to be one of the strongest Republican counties in the State. r Mr. Sessoms has been County negie s steel trust money, then why can he not afford to let his campaign managers accept campaign funds from Mr. Carnegie or from any other trust magnate? In this connection, it will be re membered that Mr. W. J. Bryan went before the Nebraska Legislature and appealed to them to refuse the offer of Mr. Carnegie to donate to that State a fund to be used to pension re tired school teachers. Mr. Bryan took the position that no self-respecting school teacher could afford to accept steel trust money in the form of a pension or in any other form. If Mr. Bryan is not willing for the teachers of his State to accept Car negie's trust money, then what does he think of the leading Democratic candidate for President, who appeal ed to Mr. Carnegie to be put on his pension roll as a retired teacher? The fact, however, that Mr. Wil son's application for the pension fund was denied, and that he did not get the pension, may qualify him to be a Democratic candidate for the Presidency. year by every organ and supporter the next convention in this State will Hillary Graybeal one night last i of his in the State as the one special . be like unto it.

From the noise that was made about the call for all of the dis gruntled insurgent "patriots" of the day in the year between campaigns.

StaU Jh airman, or at least the Nationa Committeeman, should come, froix. nat section. and to have had several overflow meetings in the streets. The meet ings, however, turned out to be a very tame affair. - Pvan i-Tvnr nf the nrreeedinrs published in the insurgent organ, the Asheville Gazette-News, shows that they did not succeed in getting a man outside of the county of Buncombe; and that the small gathering of only seventy-one people met and resoluted that they were each one without a job and wanted one, and therefore were disgruntled and would go out and go1 to work'cussing somebody-until they, got one. -.

The Raleigh News and Observer has become such a faithful and re liable personal organ of "Director Duncan" that it would seem that Mr. Duncan would no longer have use for the Greensboro News as a person al organ. It may be, however, that Mr. Duncan desires that paper to con tinue to run and perform its func tions as an organ for Senator Sim mons. In our opinion, that paper Is no' paying expenses; if not, then who i putting up the money to keep it go Ing It will be remembered tha Judge Clark and Governor Aycocl both warned the people that th trusts would pick their candidate fo the Senate and would spend a larg. amount of money in trying to ge him elected. ; Another evidence of how alert an- j fertile the Greensboro News is play ng the part of booster and organ fo ! ienator Simmons was furnished i. j hat paper In a striking way on las Sunday. That issue of the News con ained a Washington special on th ront page with large headline! ointing out some great and heroi role that Senator Simmons had plaj id in Congress in helping to proh he Steel Trust. One would judge by reading tha Washington letter that the Assoclat ad Press would have sent the new to every paper in the. country tellin ; of the great and effective prob. which Senator Simmons put unde Mr. Schwab,; a witness before th mmittei, and picturing the dram atic setting of the whole affair; ye we looked at every other exshang which came to our office - in vain t 3ud5 as single line. In either- the Asso REPUBLICAN ORGANIZATION IN NORTH CAROLINA IS NOT FOR SALE. The editor of Munsey's" Magazine was evidently suffering from indiges tion when he prepared his editorials for the February number of that pub lication. If not that, it. must be some other chronic disease that makes the whole world look blue and bad to the one afflicted. Munsey's editor took a fall out with the Southern Re publicans and termed them simply an office-holding clique and only a set of "hirelings" when it comes time to nominate a Republican Preside it. That is pretty hard, but the most audacious lick is given the Southern Republicans in a recent issue of the Philadelphia North American. It says we have no Republican party in the South and yet have a large voice in nominating the President. It also refers to the Southern Republicans as the office-holding gang and men who can be bought with office, and makes no exceptions, except Missouri and Kentucky, where it admits there is just a little respectability. It is bad enough for Munsey to try to cast slurs at us, but for the Philadelphia North American to attempt to read us a lecture, when it is known that there is more political corruptian in Philadelphia among both parties than anywhere else on this terrestial globe with the possible exception of Tam many Hall, is just more than we can bear. Under the old referee system in A TRIBUTE TO J. F. CLICK. Mr. Howard Banks, who was for merly one of the best men on the staff of the Charlotte Observer, and who is now editor of the Hickory Demo crat, has the following to say about the return of Mr. Jesse F. Click to Hickory as editor of the Times-Mercury: "Uncle Jessie Click is one of the most vigorous writers on the State press. He raises pepper in his garden and uses a right smart of it in his copy. "Our old Boss Man on the Charlotte Observer, Joe Cald well, used to say to us that he reckoned that man Click up in Hickory must tote artillery all the time he wrote such sava gerous pieces. "You know you form a con ception of a man before you see him. We, too, expected to see a man with a Jack Chinn or Jesse James cast of countenance when we took acquaintance with Brother Click. But lo and be hold, we met one of the pleas antest, softest speaking, mildest mannered gentlemen and one safe on the road to heaven by the river route a deacon in the Baptist Church.
