Craig Is the same im plement now that he waa four years aso. The Democratic State Executive Committee will meet in Raleigh again to-night and fix it so that the record of some Democrats may be whitewashed on election day in order that they may vote in the Senatorial primary. If the Democrats are not going to stand on their platform, the next time they write one they should cou ple with It an announcement stating: "This is the platform we have adopt ed, but we don't believe In it and do not propose to stand on it." The Durham Herald doesn't think that Mr. Craig will put a single trust out of business, if elected Governor. And just think, the News and Ob server, which claims that it wants all the trust bursted wide open, is supporting Craig for Governor! The Democratic papers would have the public believe that Colonel Roose velt is losing strength in his fight. But if you will notice those same Democratic papers are using columns abusing Roosevelt, which shows they sre very much afraid of his strength. At a meeting of Y. M. C. A. mem hers at Goldsboro, Pa., a few days 1 ago, a poll of those present showed that all were for Roosevelt except one man, who intended to vote for Wilson. Which is further proof that nearly all the good ones are for Hoosevelt. Democrats and Republicans held a joint meeting in Baltimore a few days ago and formed a Roosevelt; C1ub.

' 'Collier's is not so hypercritical that it cannot recognize a man.' " Mil. WILSON SIDE-STEPS. Would Not Tell Woman Whether He Favored Woman Suffrage Woman Ejected From Hall. During course of his speech in New York Saturday night a suffragette in the audience arose and asked Mr. Wilson about woman suffrage. Mr. Wilson side-stepped and declined to answer the question. Ushers ejected the lady from the hall. A press dispatch, giving an ac count of the affair, says: "The first interruption came when Governor Wilson was speaking of the : control or iegisiaue xorces or a rew. j ! The Democratic party, he said, is try-; ing to break up this vicious mon opoly. "At that instance Miss Malone stood up in the balcony and shouted: " 'Mr. Wilson, what about women voting?' "The great audience turned as one man to learn whence the interruption came. Then followed cries of 'Put her out,' and 'Make her be still.' "But Mr. Wilson raised his handiwork for silence and said: " 'My friends, we have no rieht to be rude to a woman.' " 'But Mr. Wilson,' again cried the feminine orator: 'You said you are endeavoring to break ip a monopoly. ' The men have a monopoly on vot-! ing.' I "AerRin a erpat vohirrin of hisses , TJ, .

"I hope you will not consider it a discourtesy if I decline to answer! that question,' said Mr. Wilson. "Men were standing up in all parts of the auditorium. Finally Miss Ma- lone was surrounded and was taken I by one man by the arm. She turned i on him angrily and fought him off. Ushers finally toot hold of Miss Ma lone and took her through a fire es cape exit." The South Has Been Voting Wrong.

Mr. Roose velt's room at the hospital was bank ed with flowers, and he requested that some of them be put in the 1 rooms of other patients at the hos pital. Thousands of telegrams wish ing him a speedy recovery have been received by Colonel Roosevelt, some of the telegrams coming from the crown heads of Europe. Mr. Roosevelt is anxious to make a half-horu speech at Madison Square Garden, New York, on October 30th, and the doctors say he may make that speech if he remains quiet in the meantime and continues to improve.

After ex-jQf amining the patient they said the wound was still wide open, spoke of, the possibility of infection and added they were unable to say whether it'hpaHn tnt0ta ,! would be possible for him to take up; au-fthe work of the campaign again. Colonel Roosevelt said when his; wound had been dressed that there was no longer the need of constant supervision of physicians, because he was "all right. The physicians were doubtful at first whether he should be left alone, and it was suggested that one of their number remain at Sagamore Hill. But the Colonel in sisted that it was unnecessary, and the doctors concluded it would be wisest to acede to his wishes. They all went to New York this evening, and said they would not return until to-morrow afternoon. Their action was regarded by Colonel Roosevelt's friends as an indication of his im proved condition. , The parting injunction of the phy sicians was that Colonel Roosevelt must have absolute rest and must see no one to-day or to-morrow.

"It is difficult for an or dinary man in the compass of ordi nary language to compete with the testimony of character assassination and liars like Hilles men who by their falsehoods incite weak minded men to actual assassination," shout ed McCormick. This brought out a storm of protest from Chairman Clapp and other members. They de clined to allow McCormick to read further along this line, but admitted the statement into the record. McCormick's statement was inci dental to his general statement of the "progressive party's campaign ex penses in Illinois. During the whole campaign," McCormick said, "the ,Taft people assiduously circulated the lie that I am connected with the harvester trust. I have never owned and do not own a share of harvester fctocn. ana ao not exDect to own a share. McCoombs testified that Cy rus McCormick contributed to the Wilson campaign fund.
