Chief Justice Walter Clark, one of the ihroe Democrats in the Senatorial race, tired his opening gun in Greens boro Tuesday. Judge Clark criticis ed the record of both Simmons and Kitchin and said that neither had stood on the platform. The Judge will be busy making speeches from now until the Supreme Court con Teaes again the last of August. COMMITTEE MEETS AUGUST Chairman Morehead Ha Called Re publican State Commitee to Meet in Greensboro to Set Date for State Convention. State Chairman Morehead on last Saturday issued a call for the State Committee to meet in Greensboro August 7th to decide on the time and place for the next State Convention and to consider such other matters as may properly come before, the com mittee. Some are under the impression Uat the State Convention will be call ed to meet in Greensboro or CJharlotte on September 7 to name a State ticket and two presidential electors. The Convention may be called for an earlier date, but it can't be called for a later date than September 7, as the State plan of organization says that the State Convention must be held sixty days prior to the November elec tion. TUN WAKE FOREST CASE. Jndge Fergnson Holds With Plaintiff in School's Case Decided Election Was Void. The Wake Forest school tax case had another hearing in court Tues day and Judge Ferguson sustained the injunction and decided the spe cial tax election held in that district as void as contended by the plain tiffs. Woman suffrage played a part in the case, and Judge Ferguson, by his ruling, gives the opinion that wo men are freeholders and that non residents of a district in which they hold property are to be consulted in a petition. He clearly upholds the contention of the plaintiffs through out and the Wake Forest election is lost if the Supreme Court does not interfere. But it will be appealed. The de tense set up the claim that the wo men are not to be counted as free holders in such an election and that the non-residents of a district are not within the meaning of the statute, hich makes necessary the signature of 25 per cent of the freeholders in a community before an election can be ordered. The advocates of the school tax made no effort to secure the signature of the women, taking the view that women are not voters and therefore are not to be consider ed in the school elections. This election was carried the lat ter part of June. It was close in the registration. The plaintiffs in the fatter contended that the election nad not been actually won, that the registration books had been tamper ed with and that there was not real y a majority of the registered vote, ere grew up considerable feeling over this issue. The Wake Forest People came here when the injunc tion was asked for and were ready to &ght it out. It took several attempts get it actually before the courts. M OnOTaOO th CfcSd, Wf utfibSS,'1! wSTSrffa. E. T. Iamb, Prcident Norfolk South ern. Ilelgna. President E. T. Lamb, of Norfolk Southern Railway, has resigned and will go with a railroad In Georgia It is rumored that Mr. A. W. Thomp son, Third Vice-President of the Bal timore & Ohio, will be the new pres ident of the Norfolk Southern. It is further rumored that the B. & O. Is coming into North Carolina through the control of the Norfolk Southern. Ijot Foot While Aleep on Railroad Track. Arthur Hill, a young negro, who was a member of a railway camp a few miles west of Fuquay Springs, was brought to Raleigh Monday night to have his left foot amputated, f 1 ill bad fallen asleep with his feet on the railroad track. One of the engines came along later and ran over his foot, grinding it to pieces. He was dragged along the track and had bruises and scratches on his body and head. The negro charged the accident up to his carelessness, being unable to give any account of himself after sit ting down on the narrow gauged track and falling asleep. ' Piece Work Not Satisfactorily. Mr. Editor: I notice the County Commissioners are to build a con crete road to the Country Club so that the automobilists and those who own carriages can take nice easy drives to the Country Club, and this in the face of the fact that the county roads leading into the city, over fhich the farmers must travel, are in very bad condition. Shouldn't this money be, spent on roads and bridges where it would benefit the general public? The city of Raleigh is overdrawn about $30,000 and still the city fa thers have decided to buy automo bile trucks for the fire department, and then furnish the chief of the fire department with an automobile, all of which will cost about $30,000, and still the mo6t of the streets of the city are almost impassable in bad weather. It appears that the money in city and county are not spent to best advantage. A READER. , THE XEXT PRESIDEXT, WHO? A Majority of the Republican Con vention Against Taft and a Major ity of the Democratic Convention Against Wilson. i Hickory Times-Mercury. ! We don't know. Do you? We brag on our Republican form of govern ment, run on Democratic principles. But have we such? It is run by po litical parties. We have two political , parties seeking the job. They have' made a mess of it. Let's see. Roosevelt, according to all the pa pers we have seen, went to his con vention with a majority of the dele gates. Democratic principles would have given him the nomination. But a committee of men set aside dem ocracy and appointed Mr. Taft as the candidate. Clark went to his convention with the most delegates and increased un til he, too, had a majority; and hence, according to democratic prin ciples, the minority should have been democratic enough to have yielded to the expressed will of the people and give him the nomination. But in stead, they listened to a dictator, Mr. Bryan, slapped democracy in the face and by the most threatening intimi dations nominated Wilson. Can one who wants to honor and encourage democracy vote for either? Hardiy, and be consistent. Parson Glenn as a Prophesier. Union Republican Ex-Governor R. B. Glenn predicts that North Carolina will give Wilson and Marshall a majority that will not be under 60,000. . . . Charlotte Chronicle. The ex-Governor is a success at prophesying. He said at one time, not many months since, that the earth and isles of the sea were going for Harmon, but now he is on a top seat in the Wilson band wagon. He also said there would be no need for court houses, jails, etc., or lawyers, if pro hibiten was voted. We have prohi biton and also even more need for court houses, jails and lawyers than ever. Conscience Fund for Year Amounted to Over Six Thousand. j The still, small voice of conscience, j pleading with Americans who in va-; rious ways had defrauded the United States Government, brought to the Federal Treasury during the fiscal year of 1912, just closed, a total of $6,514. I This amount came from several hundred persons, the identity of all unknown, and makes an aggregate of $431,801 thus paid into the Treas ury. While it is popularly supposed, that these contributions are placed in a separate fund, or what is familiar ly known as the "Conscience Fund," there is in reality no such distinct ac count piling up in the vaults of the Government. As the money is receiv ed it is immediately converted into the general fund of the Treasury and expended the same as any other re ceipts. The conscience contributions range from a few cents to thousands of dol lars. The largest received daring the last fiscal year was $2,000. The first contribution waa received in 1811. No More Mcmey to Chaw the Block drr. The b'ockaders will have a some what easier time from cow on. ac cording to a Washington ditpatch of Tuesday, which says: Illicit stills among: the Southern Appalachian mountains will nimmet steadily for a time, undisturbed by the Internal revenue service, because the service has exhausted its money for raiding purposes. The revenue officers will ride on their raids no more until Congress supplies more funds. Lack of departmental appropria tions has forced the service to recall forty revenue watchdogs who for years have prowled the mountain fastnesses of the Carolinas. Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia and other oSuthern Appalachian States. The men will be assigned to other work pendirg the appropriation of raising funds. i 1 t I Xo Matter What Cord l'ed So Um& I a They Hang. We are told that in the midst of a prayer at a church near town, one , pious brother said, "O Lord, we pray Thee that the Democratic party may hang together in the coming elec- tion." "Amen, answer prayer, Lord," j put in a Republican who was near, j "But I do not mean it as the Repnb- j lican brother means it. Lord, I pray that we may hang together in concord and accord," continued the Demo crat. "Amen, Lord," again said the Republican; anycord so long as they hang." Leaksrille Spray News. Up in, Stokes County an old chap undertook to commit suicide by hang ing himself with a blind-bridle. Just as he was about dead his son cut him down. The old man rubbed his eyes and said: "John; if you had let me alone a minute longer, I would have been in heaven." Yes, replied the boy, "you would have cut a figure in heaven looking through a blind bridle, wouldn't you?" And that is the way a Rockingham Republican would look voting for a Democrat un der any circumstances whatsoever. Leaksville Spray News. The Democrats in Congress are j doing a number of things these days j iu mane uic juuiv.ivuo giicic. i lie; are over-playing the political game and under-estimating the country's intelligence. We shall draw a long breath of relief when they finally leave for home. Charlotte Observer. Simmons and His Reactionary Plank. Snow Hill Square Deal.

Hope many friends of the pa per will get up a club of four or more and send in before the next is sue. The little girl from the city had been questioning the old farmer, touching on many things about the place. "And now," said she in conclusion, "I'd like to ask you just one thing more?" "Fire away," said the farmer, good naturedly. , "What I want to know," said the untiring litle questioner, "is, when you have finished milking the cow, how do you turn it off?"

The demand has continued so crrat that It has bn necessary to print a second edition. Every Republican who wants to s his party grow and win in the Stale as well as the Nation should get up a club of at least ten or twenty for this speech and send in his order right away. The speech quotes from the Bragg Fraud Commission Report the facts which brand forever as false the charge which the Democratic machine politicians have been making against the Republican party for forty years to the effect that they were guil ty of isauing the carpet-bag bonds and "Iootirg the State." Mr. Butler stated in his speech that every' copy of that Bragg Fraud Commission Report had been burned or destroyed, so far as he knew, except the one copy which he had. He quotes the facts to show that It was lead ing Democrats and not Republi cans who were responsible for what looting of the State was done. The speech not only sets his tory straight for the first time on this important matter, but It also gives the records of both parties, and besides presents the great living issues now before the people in both State and Nation. If a copy of this speech is put in the hands of every vot er in the State, it will mean the defeat of he Democratic ma chine, which they so richly de serve, and which the future growth and prosperity of the State demands. Now is the time to distribute such literature while the people can read and think. It will do ten times as much good now as it will during the heat of a cam paign. The second edition is going fast, so send In your orders at once. Address, s THE CAUCASIAN PUBLISH ING COMPANY, Raleigh, N. C. .We would better not give South t Carolina too much.
