the State, and also the National Dem
ocratic party, have nominated as
their standard-bearers opponents of
prohibition. The Times ha& turtner
expressed surprise that your League
has not taken action in openly oppos
ing both these political organizations.
"You will remember that after
this State had voted prohibition by a
large majority, you and your fellow
leaders told our people the fight had
just begun, and that the next Btep
was to carry the matter before the
National Congress and fight for na
tional legislation that would curtail
the liquor traffic by preventing the
shipment of liquor into this and other
dry States. Such legislation is now
pending in Congress. The question
arises, 'How can we hope to succeed
in passing national legislation that
wil curtail the liquor traffic if we
help elect, either by our votes, or by
quietly failing to show our opposi
tion, a President and a Vice-President,
both of whom are avowed local
optionists?' You are well aware of
the fact that both Woodrow Wilson
and Governor Marshall, the Demo
cratic nominees for President and1
the powers have about given up hope
of success in that direction. ,

wound dressed by Railway Surgeon
Anderson. The wound was received
in a rather unusual manner. Car

bridge Sunday night and about 5
o'clock yesterday morning he acci
dentally went to sleep. He said he
was sure he had been asleep only a
few minutes when a passing train
awoke him and when he was aroused!
he found that he had received a bul-l
let in his right leg. His own pistol
was at his side with one cartridge
discharged and it is believed that
while dreaming he accidentally drew
the weapon and pulled the trigger.
The bullet entered the fleshy part
of the leg just below the knee and
was taken out by Dr. Anderson

Kitchin Charges Simmons Entered
Into a Lumber Deal With Lorimer.
In his speech in Goldsboro Satur
day Governor Kitchin went into the
skinning business with Senator Sim
,mons as his subject. A special from
Goldsboro to Sunday's Greensboro
News says:
"He charged that Simmons had
Lorimer to visit him at his New Bern
home and had entered into a lumber
deal with Lorimer; that Simmons in
his talk about the Lorimer "jack
pot" had shown his familiarity with
the game, while he declared with
hands raised In holy horror that he
(the governor) had never seen a
"jack pot" and did not know what
one looked like.
He charged that Simmons' state
ment that he would resign if he was
not elected chairman of the finance
committee was a political bluff, a
game that Senator Simmons was good
at; that as a matter of fact Simmons
would not resign.
A Voice From Watauga County.
Union Republican.
Mr. Editor: Being a reader of your
paper and not seeing anything from
old Watauga for some time, I thought
I would inform you that the people
were not all dead up the mountains,
and were not all supporting Mr. Taft,
by a horn full. The Republicans of
this county are for Theodore Roose
velt, for President, ten to one. I
note, Mr. Editor, that you are sup
porting Mr. Taft and opposing Mr.
Roosevelt, and I dont' know for what
cause, unless it is through party loy
alty, that is, that you believe Mr. Taft
to be the choice of the Republican
party. Now I want to ask you who
compose the Republican party? Is it
the great masses of voters who elect
ed McKinley and Roosevelt, or is it
Barnes, Penrose, Root, McKinley and
a defunct national committee and the
office-holders under Mr. Taft? If the
latter, then, of course, you are repre
senting the party's choice, but if the
rank and file of Republican voters,
then you are ignoring their expressed
demands. Of course, you would say
that Mr. Roosevelt is not a Republi
can, anti not running on the Republi
can platform. Now I want to say
that if Mr. Roosevelt does not rep
resent the Republican party by name,
he does represent them by principle,
because the progressive platform is
the same document the Republicans
demanded at Chicago, but whose pow
er was crushed and rights denied.
You know and every other informed
man knows that in nearly every State
wrhere the people had a voice they
were overwhelmingly for Roosevelt,
and more especially in those States
that have a Republican majority.
So if you are for party loyalty come
out for Theodore Roosevelt, the
champion of the people, who the ma
jority of the Republicans are support
ing, whose just claims will be proven
on November 5th. I am,
Yours for Roosevelt,

The Governor asked that she be al

Stories of privation and suffering
without precedent in the history of
Central American warfare are com

to meet the demand for immediate
food supplies for the starving people.
