Mr. Morehead replied )i favored one State ticket and billing to the arrangement as !r'pos(l by Mr. Pearson. It was pn'Taliy understood that the sup-,orr-rs of Mr. Roosevelt would agree on t wo electors and the supporters of Mr. Taft would agree on two electors, .m l then all would get together In the auditorium and name a State ticket. On Wednesday of the Convention Mr. I't arson told the Roosevelt supporters that certain Taft men had been med !!ii; and he was then informed that the Roosevelt men would not be per mitted to go into the auditorium even to help select a State ticket. This was the turning point, and it necessitated two conventions. ; The State Committee. i The State Committee met in the assembly room of the Selwyn Hotel Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock and pave all the counties an opportunity to hand In credentials. Then the committee retired to another room to hold an executive session. The first shot out of the box was a resolution by Dr. J. J. Mott declaring that no persons except supporters of Mr. Taft should have a right to voice or vote in the committee. Messrs. C. H. Cowles and Geo. E. Butler and others told the other members of the committee what they considered the rights of free American citizens, hut after a prolonged discussion, Dr. Mott's reso lution was adopted by a vote of 6 to 8. Then Mr. Thomas Settle introduced KKAL ANCIENT HISTORY. (Continued from page 1.) on account or the zeal an loyalty or First District: Wheeler Martin. Second District: J. R. Gasklll.

D. Albright. Tenth District: T. F. Roland. The convention was then adjourn-1 ot the State and national tickets of ed until 7 o'clock in order that the committee could have time to hear all contests. But when the hour of seven had arrived the committee was not ready and the convention did not meet until 9 o'clock. Morehead Names Duncan Committee man. On motion of Chairman Morehead, the position of National Committee man, held by Hon. Richmond Pear son, was declared vacant, and then on motion of State Chairman John M. Morehead, Mr. E. C. Duncan was named National Committeeman. Mr. Morehead was re-elected State Chair man. Mr. Settle was then named for Governor on a local option plat form (the full ticket was published in the last issue of The Caucasian). Messrs. Harry Skinner and W. P. Bynum, of Greensboro, were named as the two Taft electors, but it is understood both gentlemen have de clined. Mr. Skinner favored one State ticket, and suggested that a commit tee be named to confer with the Pro gressive Republicans, but Mr. E. C. Duncan was opposed to conferring with the Progressives. "We must act with common nense," replied Mr. Skinner. "We all know that there are many at home who do not want to vote for Taft who would be willing to support a Republican a resolution to deprive any delegate State ticket. And I want to say that of a seat unless he would first prom ise not to vote for Mr. Roosevelt. After the steam roller was well oiled, then the contesting delegates were permitted to go before the commit tee hear the articles of bondage read, and if they were strong for Mr. Taft they were allowed to go on the tem porary roll. Not a single delegate from Harnett, Sampson, Chatham, or several other counties would accept a badge under such conditions, put politely declined and left the room. It was then evident there would be two conventions. i while Mr. Duncan may have received all he desired at the hands of this convention " "Mr. Chairman," from Mr. Dun can on the floor below. "I have not," concluded Mr. Skin ner. Mr. Duncan again, "that is un true, dishonest, and indecent." "Only an intmeperate man in speech would make such an asser tion," replied Mr. Skinner. "And only a slick-haired Harry would have said what you did," shouted Mr. Duncan, clenching his cigar savagely between his teeth and pern: "The Progressive State committer and the committee named by the Roosevelt Republicans at Charlotte on ov biz men. probably the first; to advise with the Progres- tears ever noticed in the eyes or Na-i slves In regard to uniting upon a;poleon.

Meeting of Progressive Republicans, thrusting his first forward. j "Point of order, he's reflecting on The Progressive Republicans then the man we have just elected," corn held a mass meeting in the court plained a delegate. nouse ana several speecnes were made covering the situation. I The two Roosevelt electors at large, Messrs. J. F. Newell and Iredell Meares, named at the Progressive convention at Greensboro the pre vious day were endorsed. The mass meeting was then adjourned to meet again at 8:30 that night. When Col. There was a small delegation in at tendance at the auditorium, some counties having only one or two dele gates present, while twenty-five or thirty counties were entirley unrepre sented. The court-house, where the Pro gressive Republicans held their con- the Progreeslves. ; "Tne Pearson-Butler wing, repre j senting the Charlotte convention, held that to unite in organization ! would be detrimental to tickets In j Republican counties, while James N. ! Williamson, Jr., and W. S. Pearson i plead for a united organization. S "Zeb Vance Walser declined to run ; for Governor and Iredell Meares, who ! had been named as a State elector, was put at the head of the ticket. ; James N. Williamson, Jr., withdrew ! as Charlotte nominee for Insurance ; Commissioner, and Thomas McMul lens, an Atlantic Coast Line engi : neer of Rocky Mount, was named. ; V. S. Lusk was named to succeed Ire ! dell Deares on the electoral ticket at J large. The committee ratified all ; other nominations made at Charlotte. Marion Butler was one of the con j spicuous figures here today and he is j reputed to have played a prominent role in the deliberations of the com mittees. Butler came on the proxy of his brother, George Butler, and kept him from being named for Gov ernor, thus placing the honor upon Mr. Meares. The younger Butler was first nominated and had several sup porters, but Marion Butler steadfast ly ruled that it must not be. The principal discussion was wag ed over the question of whether the two wings should unite, or whether each party should go its own way, though with an understanding that they would meet at the polls. James N. Williamson, Jr., W. B. Pearson and others urged united organiza tion, while Butler, Richmond Pear son, Charles H. Cowles and others maintained that both sides should work more effectively under separate organizations. It was finally deter mined to continue separately, the Progressives proffering the chairman ship of their party to Zeb Vance Wal ser, while the Roosevelt Republicans, as the Richmond Pearson-Marion Butler wing will still call themselves, made no selection. A committee was named to redraft the Progressive platform adopted at Greensboro by the Progressive com mittee. It has representatives from each wing: Walser, Richmond Pear son, J. J. Jenkins, Charles H. Cowles and Charles E. Greene represent the Roosevelt Republicans and Maj. W Poor Entertainment. Charlotte did not come up to her standard as a convention city. There were no committees at the depot to tell the delegates where they could get accommodations, neither were their comforts looked after while in the city. Quite a contrast with the good treatment received at a former convention. Tusk called the meeting to order af- mention, was packed full. ter supper one of the delegates moved that the meeting organize by calling a roll of the counties and that each county be given the same vote as in former conventions. This was adopt ed. Another motion for each dis trict to get together and name two men as an advisory or executive com mittee was adopted. A recess of ten minutes was taken so each district could name its two members. The following compose the committee: First District: G. A. Connor, Bel haven; T. J. Cheek, Old Travel. Second District: W. L. Stallings, Tarboro. j Third District: Henry Faison, Fai- son, and George E. Butler, Clinton. 1 Fourth District: J. J. Jenkins, Si-' ier city; J. D. Parker, Smithfield. Fifth District: S. O. McGuire, El kin; J. A. Groome, Greensboro. kixth District TWO KILLED BY TRAIN.
