Then, too, I lived In Italeigh for a number of years and know most of your citizens In all parties. Harris and the others made them-m-1vh objects of contempt by their uncalled-for course, though it was nothing new. For years certain so called Republicans about Raleigh hav been acting In a manner to aid the Democrats wherever they could. Simmons, Daniels, and Duncan are the ring-leaders, I believe. At any rate, I have seen enough to satisfy nu aB to that. Now, I believe that the Republicans of Wake County are able to take care of the situation, even If muscle is necessary. It is time to use it; if an other attempt is made by the unholy conspirators, for matters have gone on too long already. I am not a fight ing character. But if the "gang" mentioned above is to appear in the future, as in the past, at conventions, ami if they will not reform, I'll con sider an invitation to attend any fu ture Republican convention In Wake County, and I'll promise to attend to "bolters" and Democratic "tools" in my most polite style. Will add in conclusion, that I wrote letters in favor of the appoint ment of Mr. Briggs as postmaster at Raleigh. He came of an excellent family and I believed him qualified for the important office. I also en dorsed Mr. Claud Dockery for United States Marshal. He, too, came of an excellent family and he ought to be a loyal Republican. I am consider ing, the advisability of withdrawing, or attempting to withdraw, any let ters I may have written in favor of the appointment of either Mr. Briggs or Mr. Dockery, for their political course, which is well-known to me, has been far from satisfactory to me recently, and the fiasco reported last week puts on the finishing touches, so far as I am concerned. Beware of the heel of political ty rants who sometimes act with and for both parties. Satan himself can not hatch a more corrupt or Incon sistent course. ocrat. The show-down haa come in Wake County, and I am glad of It. Aa for myself, I am a Butler man, I am a Morehead man, last but not least, I am a Roosevelt man. I am willing to concede to every voter the right of his own opinion. If he sees dif ferent from me let him vote accord ingly. EVERETT T. BANKS. Wake County, N. C. Harris Can't Build Up a Republican Party In Wake. Mr. Lester F. Butler, Raleigh, N. C. Dear Sir: I wish to congratulate you on the way you held your own against the office-holding brigade in your city Tuesday. It won't take many doses like that to satisfy the gentlemen. There never was, and never will be, a time when such men as Loge Harris can build up a Republican party in North Carolina. Washing you much success, I am, Yours very truly, S. D. JOHNSON. Pittsboro, N. C, April 27, 1912. reason I didn't vote with them. I was there aa a Republican and sot a Democrat. I voted every tins we Republicans bad anything to rote ox I voted against endorsing Jo, it. Sears for sheriff two years ago wheal Col. Harris wasted us to endorse him and will do ao again If I have the chance. I don't believe la being ea both sides. I have been voting the Republican ticket for fifteen or twen ty years, aad I will vote tt aa long aa It la good aad decent, bat 1 can't vote a mixed ticket. I have been to two conventions, and the Democrat-Republicans have a magic lantern show with Willis Briggs or Col. Harris one on the film. No, Mr. Editor, I neTer voted with them bat I heard a few Vote no when they were electing Col. Logan chair man, but It must have been some of their crowd that were so drunk they did not know how they were voting, for there was plenty of liquor there. Col. Harris haa gotten ao interest ed In the Democrat party I would like to know whether he helped send Ber ry O'Kelly of Method to Morrisvtlle to speak to the negroes to get them to vote for local taxes or not; some of the Democrats sent him. I had rather vote the straight Democratic ticket than to vote for them, for you can't tell what they are and where they are going.

This gives only fifteen days notice before the Convention and only ten days' notice before the pri maries, if they are held on May 4th. It will be seen that this is not as much notice as was given in Wake, yet the Federal office-holding ele ment in Wake and the Smlthfield Journal said the committee in this dertake the opening of the canal without a properly trained adminis trative force, according to John Bar rett, director general of the Pan American Union, who returned to Washington to-day after a visit to the canal zone.

However, I think they nated, and it Is the p?rt of wisdom Wonder if Colonel Logan and Mr. Wildes will now say that Standi and his committee are trying to perpe trate a fraud in Johnston, where they gave even shorter notice than was given in Wake.

It is the trick which pats the balance of pow er into the. hands of the professional politician and thwarts the will of the people, breeding discord and precipi tating strife.

He is a lawyer and United States Marshal of the Eastern District. As a friend, I want' to ask him and J. C. L. Harris to please in form themselves on the Plan of Or ganization of the Republican party before they accuse the Executive of their pie-hunters cried within. The Apex postmaster was so much en thused that he never took time to think that 'twas better to keep quiet. However, when Loge Harris is ap pointed National Committeeman, with Charles Wildes his private secretary, Delemar and Hood to recommend, then Postmaster Hudson at Apex will Committee of being a fraud upon the ! be appointed with James Q.

The Executive Committee are all gentlemen and men of character and I want to say to Mr. Dockery that I was a Republican before he ever came to Wake County, and I special adviser, and all things will work together for good. I have yet to see any real good that the An drews machine man, Loge Harris, has ever done the Republican party on Satnrday? But these gentlemen nor the Smlthfield Journal haven't aald "nairy a word" about a snap con vention in Johnston. Oh! Consistency, thou art indeed a jewel; but Con sistency, you also need an introduc tion from the Federal office-holding element in Wake County and the ed itor of the Smlthfield Journal.
