The Gold Leaf.
JJookek Washington- has cause to
wish to be saved from his fool friends.
"Kiloo stands by Bassett," says
the News and Observer. Of course;
what else did you expect?
Perhaps Dr. Iiassett thoiight.Judge
Feebles was occupying too large a
place in the public eye for the time
.Juice Pkkblkh should feel kindly
toward Dr. Bassett for diverting at- j
tention from himself by the hitter's
fool utterances on the negro question.
As iiktwkkx Roosevelt and Ilanna,
we lx'lieve with the right man the
Democrats could beat the former
more easily; but between the two for
President we rather take our chances
with the latter.
No, it was not the business of the
County .Superintendents to rebuke
Dr. Dassctt, but they did it all the
same. The introduction of the reso
lutions of censure and the individual
expressions outside of the meeting
showed where the County Superin
tendents stood.
Coiu-ord Times has changed
i weekly to a semi-weekly,
whereupon the Wilmington Messen
ger congratulates Hrother Sherrill
upon the improvement of his paper.
,We fail to see where the improvement
comes in, although the frequency of
a good thing ought to count in its
favor. The Times was such a good
paper as a weekly we doubt if it can
be improved even as a semi-weekly
However, we tender congratulations,

Editor Poc Makes Amende.
Raleigh Tiint-H.
Soon after the great (ireensboro
gathering of the lar Heel dans from
all parts of the United States, the
Progressive Farmer made the state
ment that Senator Ransom, who
spoke on this occasion, was in his
dotage and ought not to be allowed
to go to public assemblages of this
sort and make a, spectacle of himself.
It was a surprising statement, and
it seemeu to unpleasantly surprise
the State. It is a pleasure to see the
following amende bv Lditor roe in
the last issue of ihv Progressive Far
'We make mistakes, as some other
people do, but we hope we shall ever
have the manliness to acknowledge
our mistakes when we see them. Re
reading our rather hastily prepared
account of the (ireensboro reunion,
we are convinced that one reference
to an aged and distinguished Xorth
Carolinian should not have been
made because it was unnecessary
and because it was so unfortunately
worded as to suggest lack of respect

Mr. roe, the editor of the Farmer.
is one of the liest balanced men on
the press of the State. And vet men
of such discerning judgment as his
lose their poise sometimes. It is verv
difficult for a newspaper man to keep
the scales delicately adjusted all the
time. In the hurry of his strenuous
lite he slips a cog now and then and
says something for which he is after-
warn sorrv. It was evidently so in
this instance. We owe a great deal
to the old war horses. Senator Ran
som is Xorth Carolina's most distin
guished citizen. His services in the
past decades have been beyond esti
mate. It was he who saved theState
from the carpet-baggers of recon
struction by his appeal to Judge
Brooks, of the Federal Court, when
the Xorth Carolina Supreme Court
declared that the Xorth Carolina judi
ciary had been exhausted. Vance and
Ransom made a team of wheel horses
in the United States Senate that
caused Xorth Carolina to rank in the
very forefront of the States for able
and statesmanlike representation.
Ransom crowned his public service
by holding the position of ambassa
dor to Mexico, and in his last days is
spending his time like Ciucinnatus.
He is today the State's greatest cot
ton farmer.
Even if Editor I'oe believed his
harsh statement to be true, he erred
in expressing his sentiments, as he
now so bravely confesses. It takes a
high-minded man to make an apol-

A Thank-Offering.
The people of Xorth Carolina know-
that tlie orphanages of the State rank
among the greatest, most beneficent of
our institutions.
An institution which rescues innocent,
IielpIesHCluIurenfrom the wreck of homes,
tics of life, gives them kind care, advan
tages of school and traininir in industrial
brandies, and moral and religious in
struction, surely has the strongest of
claims upon the heartiest sympathy and
support oi an 01 our people.
Many who have had the care and train
ing in our orphans' homes are todav liv
ing upright ( hnstian lives. We know
not what their lives -would have been
without this help at a critical time, with
out training in their childhood.
-The importance, the necessity of such
work is becoming more and more appre
At no time in the year is more done for
this worthy cause than at Thanksgiving
and the practice of giving to the support
of the destitute, homeless orphan children
in tins nine is nttingand coinmendab e.
We are glad that Thanksgiving Day is

"There is no class of people so difficult
to organize in their own interests as the
farmers of the South."' is a statement
that has been made to nie on high au

endorsed the truthfulness of the asser
tion when I repeated it to them.
Nevertheless, another attempt is being
made this week to organize the tobacco
growers of North Carolina and Virginia
into an inter-state alliance, the meeting
is being held at Danville, Va., beginning
Tuesday of this week. Col. John b. Cun
ningham, President of the North Carolina
Tobacco (j rowers Association (the North

During the agitation of the liquor ques- j
tion in North Carolina this year elections ;
have been held in 27 towns, 18 of which '
voted for prohibition or dispensary and !
against the open saloon, and 8 voted to '
remain "wet." At one place the election I
has not yet been held. Durham is the
largest town to adopt prohibition since :
Raleigh tried it some 1 5 years ago. and
much interest is felt in the result of the '
trial there.

Washing tox, Nov.' 14. A marriage
in which a wide circle of friends in
this city and all North Carolinians
will be deeply interested was that j
which took place today at 10 o'clock. !
when Miss Lillian L. baum became
the bride of Judge Jeter C Pritchard.
News of the inceresting event was
known only to a few intimate friends
and it was decided to have a quiet
home wedding, the original plan for
a church wedding being abandoned
because of illness in the family. The
ceremony was performed at the home
of the bride, 1817 M street, and was
attended only by members of the
family. Dr. F. I). Power, pastor of
Garfield Memorial church, was the
officiating clergyman.
The nuptial event possesses a
double interest for North Carolinians.
The bride, who is one of the most
attractive and gifted 3"oung women
iu the capital, is of North Carolina
parentage. Her mother was a daugh
ter of the late Dr. Clements; and is a
native of Halifax county. She is
also a niece of Capt. T. W. Mason
of Northampton county. Miss Saum
is the daughter of Mr. J. F. Saum, a
well known merchant of this city.
She is a musician of decided talent
and is exceedingly popular in a large
tjsocial circle.
The groom is too well known in
this State to need introduction.
Since the close of Iris eight years' ser
vice in the Senate of the United States
he has become a temporary resident

himself as a jurist so as to win the
favor and approval of the people find
he has friends by the score in the Na
tional capital who wish for him and
his a life of happiness and success.
Mr. and Mrs. Pritchard left for New
York after the ceremony. They will
return Monday in time for Judge
Pritchard to resume his duties on
the bench. After December first they
will be at home at their handsome
new home, 1480 Euclid street.
