handed over the great carved whale *

The old chief then charged
rcksdfather to lead the people safely
and gave the command that the
people should obey the. word of the
new chief, even as they had obeyed
him. Grandfather had no Idea whet

started. The turn of event* had eort
of stunned him. Suddenly he found
that he bad been made chief. Ruler
ship here In these Islands was always,
in the final analysis, based uu the
will of the people ruled.
“There were several reasons why
the old chief selected grandfather for
leadership. One was. I believe, that
he felt that white aggression In these
txUnd would become more pro
nounced with the passing of the
years. More of the great old square
riggers had been seen in past
few seasons in these waters, and he
felt that grandfather would know
bow to deal with them for the best
interests of the people.
Another was that grandfather was
a powerful man. physically. He stood
nearly si* feet four Inches. The
island people have always been great
admirercs of strength, and grand
father could out-swim. out-dive, out
run and out-hunt the local youths.
Then he had a sunny disposition, a
ready smile and a natural gift for
politics end the handling of peoide,
which he had apparently inherited
from his Irish mother—which Incl
dently was where he got his red
hair. During the years a real affec
tion had sprung up between ’Sun
Top' and the old chief. The chief felt
he was fitted to lead the people.
“This is sort of a roundabout way
of aii awe ring your question," Pauo
said to me. “I wanted to give you
the background first. The old chief
died a few wee's after this.
"Now there Is a custom here la
Polynesia which calls for the burial
of rulers In a place aiiurt. The loca
tion of this spot Is kept a deep se
cret. Only one person In a genera
tion knows the exact location of the
burial place of the kings.
“it Is high up. and pall-bearerk
have to be chosen to carry the body
up. but when they are very near the
Place, they are sent down with lips
-sealed. The acf of opening the tomb
and placing the body among those
of the line, devolves upon but one.
“So when the old chief passed
away, the body was anointed and
wrapped in to pa cloth. It became
grandfather's duty, the exact loca
tion having lieen imparted to him by
the old chief, after his coronation, to
be the one to place the body in the
secret burial place of the kings.
"The funeral party set out in the
great war canoes for old Tarea. That
was the first time grandfather had
set foot on that island since he had
been taken from there as a captive
ten years before, Now he was return
ing as chief of the people whose
captive he had been."
Tom said eoftly: "There Is drama
in that."

Freeman cited all of the numerous
ways in which the State had pros
pered under Democratic rule, pointing
out good roads, humane treatment

as achievements of the party.

Freeman then talked of recent pro

Nero fiddled while Rome burned, so

ed a reduction in State expenditures
of about $3,500,000 last biennium. This
put the State’s house “in ordej-" while
the nation marched on in darkness.
"Consider the questions confront
ing the congress today and the con
duct of that body dominated by a
Republican senate and a Republican
president—then think on the acts of
our last legislature.” he continued,
"A comparison will show that the
Democratic party is to be the safest
trusted because it has the principles
and men nearest to the people and

Noting that “a progressive and en

nizes that new conditions require new
remedies." Freeman recited passage
of the Mac Lean school law, the local
government act, the new road law,

Raleigh, June IS—While it is not
expected that the State Democratic
Convention, In eeeeion here today, will
formally indorse either Senator Cam
eron Morrison or Robert R. Reynolds,
since both must contest for the nom
ination in a second primary July 2, a
majority of those attending the con
vention here seem to be more pro-
Morrison than pro-Reynolds, and ob
servers agree. It would not be sur
prising to many if the convention
should turn out to be a Morrison
convention by the time it is over.
Reynolds, of courss, has many
friends and supporters among the de
legates and others who are here for
the convention and these are en
thusiastic and vocal in their praise
Had Hoover been attie to see thing?
with the discernment of Gardner, he
added, things would be vastly difft-r
--end in the country today.
In conclusion Freeman said present
day conditions have been made by
men and "can be remedied by/men. ’’
“I would not dare to name/a date
when we may look for an improve
ment in our economic life, yat I will
tell you one thing that must/be done
before that day cun arrive.

of Reynolds and in their prediction*.
Mqet of thoee In the Reynold* camp
are predicting that he will have a
majority of not )«as than 90-000 over
Morrison in the second primary and
that he is making gain* every day in
every section of the State. They main
tain that it is unthinkable that any
of those who voted for Reynolds in
the first primary will desert him now
and go to the candidate who trailed
him 16,000 votes In the first primary
and that the great majority of those
who voted for lam C. Bowie, Frank
D. Grist and Arthur Simmons will
undoubtedly turn to Reynolds rather
than Morrison.
The Reynolds forces are also main
taining that Grists decision to sup
port Morrison instead of Reynolds is
reacting to help Reynolds more than I
Morrison, and that Grist's assault on
Reynolds' war record. In which he
branded Reynolds as having evaded
his duty during the war, has really
turned more ex-eervice men to Rey
nolds than to Morrison.
It is an apparent fact, however, that
the Morrison organization has gotten
down to business in short order and
that It has been functioning smoothy
and effectively now for almost a week,
while Reynolds apparently has been
doing little more than mark time un
til the caucus he held with his county
managers and supporters here yester
day afternoon. Under the direction of
Colonel Don Scott, of Graham, State
campaign manager for Morrison, the
organization of the Morrison cam- ]
paign has been going ahead steadily, 1
without any blare of trumpets, but 1
with precision. It is agreed that al- I
ready, in less than a week, Morrison i
has a better organization function
ing In every section of .the State than
in his entire-campaign previous to'
the first primary- It is also agreed
that this organization is going to be
come increasingly effective between i
now and Ju|y 2 and that it embraces
a great many influentall men who
were more or leas inactive in the sena
torial campaign before th first pri
The Reynolds sqpporters are al
ready raising the cry that Morrison
has started out to "buy" the nomina
tion in the second primary, that he
has made the sky the limit in cam
paign expenditures and is already
spending money like water. They
muintain that Morrison's demand for
a second primary pas already anger-
ed many who voted for him in the
first primary because of the coat of
thla second primary, which they claim
will cost the taxpayers of th* State
6200.000. The facts are. however, thai
the second primary is being held in
more than half the counties in purely
local contests, so that a second pri
mary for State or congressional of
fice* will not increase the cost more
than 617.000 or sl6 000 at most.
While prohibition is admittedly on*
of the large*! single issues In th*
campaign, with Reynolds an out-«ffd
out wet and Morrison dry, the Mor
rison managers are basing their cam
paign more upon the inherent quali
fications of the two men rather than
upon prohibition, maintaining that
Morrison is better fitted by back
ground and past experience to repre
sent North Carolina in the Senate
than is Reynolds. They agree that
Reynolds is likeable, entertaining,
suave and clever and that he puts on
an entertaining campaign, especially
in his speeches. But they maintain
that when it comes to legislative mat
ters affecting ths welfare of the State
and nation. Morrison *s the safer and
saner man to tie to an ddepend upon.
