Vermont, GIVE IIOOSEVKLT A SQUAKK DEAL. Roosevelt tells Tar Heel peo ple that the only way to cure bad trusts is to put them into the hands of a receiver. Why did he not take some of his own medicine when be had a chance. Southport News. The editor of the Southport News is a lady and we have no desire to get into a controversy with a lady, yet as the Southport News has heretofore shown a disposition to be fair, we know the editor has Just been misin formed in this instance. Mr. Roosevelt was using his "own medicine" when he was President, or rather he was administering it to the oppressive trusts, but as they were very large, it naturally took some time for the medicine to go through their system and have its effect. In other words, Mr. Roosevelt had his Attorney General and other special agents securing data in regard to the operations of the trusts while he was President. This was true in the case of the sugar trusts and several oth ers, and these facts came to light when all the desired information had been secured and the trusts later in dicted. The public will remember what happened in the case of the northern securities. Certainly the News did not expect Mr. Roosevelt to nut every trust, or any trust in the . hands of receivers without first find ing out for a certainty if the charges were true. Hearsay evidence would not do. It was first necessary to in vestigate thoroughly thooperations of the trusts and buildup a case founded on facts before going into court. This Mr. Roosevelt was doing at the time he went out of office. The reports made later were the fruits of his ef forts to have them obey the law. The Standard Oil, the American To bacco Company and the Sugar Trust were all glad when Mr. Roosevelt went out of office and no one has heard of any efforts on the part of the trusts to get Col. Roosevelt back in the White House. But the people are with Col. Roosevelt and would like to see him President again. By the way, we don't just now re call the name of any trust that was prosecuted under Cleveland's two administrations. HAS REACHED THE CIRCrs STAGE.

The News and Observer reports that Col. A. H. Boyden, of Salisbury, has contributed $2,500 for the Wil son campaign fund. The News and Observer accepted the contribution and sent it on to Wilson's headquar ters. Wonder if it has(occurred to the public that Col. Boyden was the head otthe liquor forces in this State two years ago, and that it is possible his contribution was made up by friends of local option, who think Wilson would give them what they want along that line? Of course Col. Boyden has a right to be a local op tionist, but to think the, News and Observer, which claims to be so strong for prohibition, would accept the money without question, should be startling news to the real prohibitionist. Here is an article that is being cop- j ied in a good many of the Simmons' ! papers: "If McNinch will say mat Kitchin favors the removal of the duty on tobacco and peanuts, it will take a goods box to hold the Simmons ballots in the to bacco and peanut markets. Webster's Weekly." We are to understand from the above that Webster's Weekly, and the other papers that have given their approval to the article, think that the large majority of the Democrats in this State favor a protective tariff. Still their platform denounces the protective tariff. The Democrats are getting their politics badly mixed. all must be supporting , , . w . 1 rank and file who cannot afford to ior certainiy mey u . fH judgment enough not to jump irom Then they Roosevelt, on their own re- the frying-pan into the fire.

Some Greensboro business men have formed a new ice company in order to have some competition in the business and to give' better ser The nromoters of the new company says: "One of the purposes of the new ice and cold storage com pany is to give Greensboro ice competition. When the Artie Ice & Coal Company the al leged ice 'trust' took over all the independent ice concerns in Greensboro early this year it is charged that competition was absolutely destroyed and that very poor service has been given the people this summer." What has become of Kitchin's anti-trust law, the Attorney-General, Hhe Solicitor of that district, and oth er officials? Why have they permit ted the people of Greensboro to be oppressed by the ice trust? Hasn't the Democratic party claimed that it is in favor of destroying the op pressive trusts? GOV. WILSON'S INACTION. Governor Wilson, the Democratic nominee for President, rejects Col. Roosevelt's plan for regulating the trusts through a federal commission, just as railroads now are regulated. He says he is against such "exten sion of national power." He says that the States must solve the prob lem. New Jersey is the home of the trusfs, Mr. Woodrow Wilson has been Governor of that State ior neariy two years and during that time he has drafted no bill nor made any re commendations along that line. Since he has been Governor the national government has convicted the tobac co trust and oil trust, both New Jer sey corporations, of flagrant irregu larities of the law. Mr. Wilson has at his command a statue providing for the suspension or repeal of the charter of any corporation, as well as a statute defining the guilt of trust officers who promote unlawful enterprises, but he has made no move against the tobacco and oil trusts. Why hasn't he made good of his opportunities in this direction since he has been Governor? How does the public know that he would take any action if he is made President? There is not an intelligent man in the State who does not know that the American Tobacco Company people did not offer to take care of those State bonds because of friendship for Mr. Kitchin, yet as they seem to think it will make good cam paign argument they will con tinue to use it Durham Herald. Think the Herald is.partially right about it. Our understanding of the transaction was that the price paid included the whole Democratic party. Ex-State Senator Lockhart, him self a Democrat, says the result of Kitchin's four years as Governor has been "simply four years of whining.'I can't do anything." ' Isn't It awful to think the Democrats should have elected such a man to the highest office in the State! Give the Democrats a chance to do what they say they will do and if they fail, then try some other party. Durham Herald. The Democrats had a chance six years ago. They had the President and Congress and failed, and came near causing the rest of the country to fail. Why should they be given a chance at another failure This1 miles up the Hudson River he passed . before the armada of ironclads. Most ! of the journey was made between a double line of cruisers and battle ships and all the way from 3 1st. 6treet to within hailing distance of Yonkers the cannonade of a Presi dent's salute swept over the water. "Well." the President said as he left the bridge, after the Mayflower had returned to her anchorage, "everybody ought to be proud of that fleet." Naval attaches of Great Britain, Germany, Japan, Italy and half a score of other nations sat with the President and watched the panorama of fighting ships. Woodrow Wilson wants produce to sell for a lower price. Do you, Mr. Producer? THE MONUMENT TO COMMEMO RATE THE BATTLE OP KINGS MOUNTAIN. On October 7 the 132nd annual eel bration of the batle of Kings Moun tain was held at a spot seven miles from where the battle was fought. No one of the 8,000 people who gather ed for the celebration saw the monu ment erected to commemorate the deeds of the North Carolina Revolu tionary heroes. This is because the monument is over in South Caro lina, where It does not belong. It was North Carolinians who organized to prevent the English soldiers in South Carolina from invading this State. It Is to the credit of our Tar Heel heroes that went across the line to meet tbe enemy to defeat them lief ore they entered our 6tate. Tbe THAT DEMOCRATIC MORTGAGE. Since the Democratic leaders have mortgaged their party to the corpor ations in this State, how can the peo ple hope for any relief at the hands of that party? Aren't they voting to place themselves in bondage every time they vote the Democratic ticket? No wonder-neither of the Democratic candidates have forced the passage of an effective anti-trust law, or in fact any law that was not pleasing to the corporations. Before asking the voters for any further support the Democratic leaders should at least inform the public when that mort gage is likely to expire. Is it pos Bible that a new mortgage is given the corporations every two years? The public should be informed on these matters so they can vote more (intelligently. J Even the Democrats are about ready to admit that Roosevelt will make a crack in the "Solid South." Woodrow Wilson says the Demo cratic party is out of bondage. Not so down in North Carolina, Mr. Wilson. If your name isn't on the registra tion book you should register at once. It will do no good to grieve about it after October 26. Editor Johnson, of Charity and Children, says he hopes some Moses will rise inhe next Legislature, bare his bosom to the storm and lead the children of North Carolina out of the bondage of ignorance. Democratic spell-binders claim they have done all these things, and Editor Johnson is fixing to have himself read out of the party. WITH THE EDITORS.

WILSON AND THE TRUSTS. Governor Wilson's campaign man ager was before the Senate invest! gating committee Tuesday, and the evidence he gave the committee showed that the Harvester Trust had contributed largely to Wilson's cam paign fund. This also brings to mind the fact that Wilson has taken no more to regulate the trusts in New Jersey during the two years he bas been Governor of that State, though he had the power to repeal their charters if they did not obey the Islw. Wilson's trust record will not gain him any votes from the rank and file. ' Senator Simmons has placed Con-. gressman Claud Kitchin in the An anuias Club. However, Congressman Kitchin may refuse to remain a mem-i ber of the club. The Democrats had mortgaged the State to the corporations and of course they were not going to pass any anti-trust law that had even a "snaggled" tooth. In the last issue of his Commoner, Mr. Bryan says Simmons should be defeated for the Senate because his heart is not in sympathy with the hearts of the people. Mr. Bryan pos sibly doesn't know that the corpora tions run the Democratic party- in this State. Possibly Mr. Simmons- heart is In sympathy with the hearts of the corporations.
