Judge Cook holds that property of! a church is subject to taxation. The specific case is that of city of Salis bury against the First Presbyterian Church of that city, which was in reference to the city's rights to tax the church for some very valuable real estate owned by said churcn,, which consisted of two blocks of city property. This has no reference to the church building.

When Taft was nominated at Chi cago by open fraud we announced our Duroose to not sunDort him. Since j that time and up to the present we j have worked and hoped for harmony i among the Republicans and Progres- sives in State matters. By private let ter we urged upon Chairman More head the importance of this course and had his assurance that notwith standing the action of the State Com mittee in declaring only Taft support ers would be allowed to participate in the Convention, he would favor a har mony program.

But it does not satisfy the people. We have heretofore been unwill ing to sever allegiance to the Repub lican party and have declared we would not do so unless the machine kicked us out. This they have done. There are two courses left to us, one is to smother conscience, desert principle, endorse high-handed fraud and support the Republican ticket. The other is to stand by our convic tions and retain our loyalty to the people's cause, and support the only party that represents the real and true principles of Democracy, name ly, the Progressive party.

The Republican Congressional Convention for the Eighth District, which assembled in Statesville Tues day afternoon, was a sort of double barrel affair. G. D. B. Reynolds, of Stanly County, was nominated for Congress. T. O. Teague, of Alexan der, who represented that county in the last Legislature, was nominated for elector by the Taft people, while R. v.

C., dispatch of September 10th says: This entire community was greatly shocked this afternoon when it was announced that Rev. E. E. Steele, pastor of the Presbyterian Church here, had died at 2:35 p. m. today as the result of taking some poison ous drug. Mr. Steel had been "sick for several days, but no one thought of his tak ing his own life. He is said to have preached an unusually strong sermon last Sunday week. Mr. Steele came here from Spencer a year or two ago to assume the pas torate of the Lumberton church. He was for a number of years, chaplain in the United States Navy. Mr. Steele is survived by his widow, four daughters and one son.

Senator Overman had himself in terviewed at Salisbury one day last week in reference to the amount of money the Democratic Congress ap propriated during the year. Senator Overman says if the pension bill, the rivers and harbor bill, and the post office bill are not counted the present Congress spent $37,0007000 less than last Congress. But he did not tell the whole truth, that counting these bills he admitted the present Con gress instead of decreasing expendi tures for general expenses, actually increased it $9,000,000. It is strange that Mr. Overman in telling of these expenditures should leave off the above item in order to show a "saving." Of course, he could have made the "saving" still larger by excepting a few more of the larger appropriations. -' , That interview was given out for no other purpose than to deceive the people, and it brands Overman as a small caliber politician. Big Crop Cotton, But Money Less. (New Orleans Dispatch, 5th.) The cotton crop of the South foH the year ending August 31, 1912, ac cording to statistics compiled by H. G. Hester, secretary of the New Or leans Cotton Exchange, exceeded that of the previous year by 4,018,331 bales, yet its money value was $107, 074 J 25 less. This was due as much to the low grade of the crop as to the decrease in the price resulting from over-prpduction. It was the low est in grade of any crop for the past ten years. Mr. Hester says that an acreage in cotton larger than ever be fore combined with favorable condi tions resulted in a crop larger by 2, 300,000 bales than ever before re corded. A further important factor he says, which contributed tnwrd WILSON PRAISES STRAUS. Says Nomination of the Progressives is An Admirable One and Will Put Democrats on Their Mettle. " Sea Girt, N. J., Sept. 7. Strong praise for the nomination of Oscar S. Straus as the Progressive party's gubernatorial candidate in New York came from both Governor Woodrow Wilson and Vice-Chalrman Wm. G.

Mr. Straus nomination came about under cimcum stance a that were not only unexpected but dramatic. The! former cabinet member, acting as the t convention's permanent chairman. ; was about to entertain a motion from Former Lieutenant-Governor Tim othy L. Woodruff to expedite the roll call on the names of State Chairman William Ii. Hotchkiss and Comptroll er William A. Pendergrast, of New York County, leaped to his chair and demanded to be heard. "It's 'Suspender Jack McGee," cried a voice from the gallery. Chair man Straus looked puzzled. McGee, who got his name In the Indian coun try by riding a broncho into camp with suspenders as reins, moved reso lutely toward the platform. Chairman Straus looked with sur prise on the man who with a flaming bandana swathed around his neck and his coat blazing with badges, tossed his rough-rider hat on the floor and demanded the right to make a nomination. Delegates and spectators hooted and jeered as he began to speak. But "Suspender Jack" only waved j his arm in defiance of the jeers. He paused a moment and then cried: "I nominate the illustrious and honorable Oscar S. Straus." The delegates seemed stunned, then a few of them cheered. Mr. Straus gave an amused laugh at "Sus pender Jack," bowing before him. McGee kept on with his speech and the first few faint cheers from the half a dozen or more delegates grad ually grew into a pandomonium that swept the convention hall from end to end. Standards were wrenched from their supports and delegates, yelling and cheering for Chairman Straus, paraded the aisles, turning the convention into a bedlam. Chairman Straus at first shook his head deprecatingly at the growing ovation. He turned to friends and remarked: "This must not be, I can not accept." Chairman Hotchkiss left his seat and urged Straus to accept. Scores of delegates pressed toward the platform to urge Mr. Straus to make the decision. Then Mr. Hotch kiss burst from the group that sur rounded Mr. Straus andheld up before the crush of excited delegates a sheet of yellow paper on which was writ ten: He Accepts. "He accepts." Quickly the word was passed back through the hall and another demonstration followed. All other nominations were withdrawn. Then came a flood of speeches sec onding the nomination of the former Minister of Turkey. "Suspender Jack" McGee was not lost sight of. Delegates pressed about him and proclaimed him the "man of the hour." Later the con vention passed a vote of thanks to Delegate McGee of the Fifteenth As sembly District for nominating Mr. Straus. When the convention had recover ed and when Mr. Straus had been chosen unanimously, he was called on for a speech and tendered an ovation as he formally accepted the nomina tion. At tonight's sesion the convention quieted down and the other candi dates were nominated by a rising vote.
