THE HENDE11SON GOLD XEAP THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 1904.
The Gold Leaf. ESTABLISHED 1881. BY THAD R. MANNING. THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 1904. Joe 23rd will soon be here and then we will know the name of the next Governor of North Carolina. This is the month in which to list your taxes. Better attend to the matter nt once if you have not done so already. The Meteor is the name of a new paper just started at Pittaboro. It will be independent in politics, and its carter will doubtless be as brief if not sis brilliant as its name. Colonel Jim Neal, of Danville, ap peared in the convention with a red, red rose attached to the lapel of his coat. Richmond Times-Dispntch. But nothing is said about Colonel Jim's immaculately white suit. Surely he must have worn something else beside a red, red rose. The Virginia State Democratic con vention held in Richmond last Thurs day endorsed Parker for President, but did not instruct. Senator John W Daniel, Senator Thomas S. Mar tin, Governor A. J. Montague and Hon. Allan Caperton Braxton were elected delegates at large. William P. Barksdale and Harry St. George Tucker were named as electors at large. The Democratic State convention will meet in Greensboro next Thurs day, June 23rd. It is impossible at this juncture to name the next Gov ernor, but the (Sold Leaf makes the prediction that it will not be either of the two excellent gentlemen who are most prominent in the race. With the contest so close and warm and the friends of neither giving way to the other side, that is where Gov ernor Turner will come in. That's what we are expecting. The Littleton News Reporter speaks of Judge Pritchard as a na tive born North Carolinian. Our con temporary is in error. Judge Pritch ard is a native of Tennessee but he liked North Carolina well enough to make it the State of his adoption several years ago, n.ul his first wife was a North Carolina woman, a daughter of the l ite Judge Bowman, of Mitchell county. And his second wife is of North Carolina stock if in deed she was not born in this State. The Boys in Gray. Italeigb Times. This is the Confederate Veterans' week in Nashville. The gathering of these old men is looked forward to with special interest every year. The different cities in the South vie with each other in obtaining the meeting and also in the kind offices they show to these old soldiers. This interest will be intensified more and more as the number of these veterans grow less and less. The vanguard, it is said, is already getting in the city. As many as 15, 000 are expected to be present. The Confederate hotel, which will enter tain 12,000 free, has its doors wide open waiting for the "boys in gray" to arrive. Col. Henry Waterson, of the Cou rier Journal, will address the soldiers on Wednesday. This address will be appropriate "to the occasion and will be on a high plane.

DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION. Meeting Held Saturday to Elect Dele gates to the State and Congressional Conventions Resolutions Adopted.

Cooper, Capt. W. II. Shaw, J. E. Burroughs, James Amos, Capt. J. H. Sharp, Thomas Taylor, Dr. F. A. Alacon, A. C. Zolli coffer, C. F. Tankersley, Melville Dor sey, II. T. Powell, R. S. McCoin, W. D.

A roll call of the precincts to ascer tain the relative strength of the sev eral candidates was taken with the following result: For Governor Stedman, 4; Glenn, '1; Turner, 1. Vance county is en titled to 9 votes. Hon. Francis D. Winston was the unanimous choice of the convention for Lieutenant Governor. For Associate Justice of the Su preme Court Judge Geo. H.

Justice were both put in nomination as the representative from the Western section of the State. The vote stood G for Hoke, 2 for J ustice. The following resolutions, offered by D. Y. Cooper, were at his request read by J. R. Young and adopted: Resolve, That we will bear true and loyal allegiance to the principles of Dem ocracy and that we will give hearty support to every policy based upon such principles as the surest means of safe guarding the interests of all the people. 2ml, That we congratulate and com mend our county officers upon the suc cessful manner in which they have man aged our county affairs for the past two years, enabling them this year to reduce our State and county taxes to 60 cents. No other county in North Carolina has so low a tax rate. This fact emphasizes the benefit of having a Democratic ad ministration. inl, We declare for such a modification of the law governing the assessment of railroads lor taxation as will give each county and town the full amount of the taxes for that portion of such roads as lie within their bounds, and for the ac complishment of this purpose, that as sessments upon the average value of main and branch lines be abolished and taxes from railroads be apportioned as neretolore. 4th, We declare for such amendment to the divorce laws of the State as shall put an end to the facility with which divorces are now obtained in North Car olina. ' A. C. Zollvsoffer offered the follow ing resolutions endorsing Hon. J. R. Young, Insurance Commissioner, and commending the excellent work of the Insurance Department under his wise and able management, which were unanimously adopted by a rising vote: Resolved, That we, the Democrats of Vance county in convention assembled, point with pride to the splendid record made by our countyman, Hon. James It. Young, as Insurance Commissioner of the State. Appointed as the first Insurance Commissioner of North Carolina, he has thoroughly organized the Department and by his able and efficient management not only increased the receipts to the State Treasury from his department to $175,000 per annum more than double the amount collected prior to his admin istrationbut he has rendered a service in supervising insurance companies doing business in the State, that is of far more value and saving to the citizens of the State. , By the work of this Department the people of the State, from the humblest citizen to the richest manufacturer, can now be protected in placing their insur ance, and the yearly increase of revenue from this service is of material value to the State and tends to lessen the burdens of our citizens from taxation. Resolutions endorsing Hon. E. W. Pou, member of Congress, were intro duced by C. F. Tankersley and unani mously adopted, as follows: Whekeas, The Democratic party of Vance county in convention assembled, recognizing the faithful services of the Hon. Edward W. Pou, of this Congres sional District, hesolveil, That we endorse his course in the 58th Congress and recommend him for renomination to represent this Dis trict in the 59th Congress, and so in struct our delegates to vote for him. Melville Dorsey introduced a reso lution instructing the delegates to the Congressional convention to pre sent the name of A. C. Zollicoffer, of Vance county, for delegate to the St. Louis convention, and to use their best efforts to secure his election. The resolutions, which were unani mously adopted, read as follows: Resolveil, 1 hat we, Democrats of Vance county in convention assembled, take pleasure in endorsing our distinguished countyman, A. C. Zollicoffer, Esq., as a delegate from this, the Fourth Congres sional District, to the National Demo cratic Convention at St. Louis, knowing that he will well and wisely represent his county, district and State with such high commission. Eesolved, That we instruct the dele gates to the Congressional convention, which merits in the city of Raleigh on June 22nd. 1904. to present the name of Mr. Zollicoffer and use their best efforts and influence to secure his election.

One of the ablest, most energetic and faithful officers North Carolina has ever had is Hon. James R.Young, State Insurance Commissioner. When he was elected, the Insurance Depart ment was in a disorganized condition, but in a very short time order and system prevailed, the condition of insurance companies doing business in the State was carefully scrutinized, only good companies were allowed to do business, and the Insurance Department became, a source of rev enue to the State. More than this, Commissioner Young has kept at all times vigilant watch, so as to prevent wild-cat in surance companies doing business in North Carolina, and is vigorously prosecuting men who are writing in surance for unlicensed and irrespon sible companies. Commissioner Young is determined that the people of North Carolina shall not be imposed upon by hav ing sold to them worthless insurance on their lives and their propertv. The Democratic party established the Insurance Department, placed at the head of that department James R. Young, and by so doing have saved the citizens of the State manv thousands of dollars. - ANNUAL JUNE GERMAN. The Social Function of the Year (ilven by the Tar Heel Cotillion Club Thursday Night.

MRS. tV. L. CAHPDELL, EPISCOPAL CONVENTION. Annual Meeting of the Dioceaa of North Carolina Held In Raleigh Last Week Matter of Interest and Im portance Discussed. Contributed. The Convention of the Diocese of North Carolina met in Christ Church, Raleigh, last week. Many matters of interest were discussed bat special attention was directed to the matter of Divorce Legis lation. A special committee to wtaom was referred so much of the Bishop's address as related to this subject brought in tne louowing report: Wheeeas, The statistics show that, in North Carolina, during the past year. there have been granted by the Courts of the btate more than 1,400 divorces; and v hereab, .every arvorce grantea in the State for any cause other than those causes prescribed in the Code of North Carolina in its edition of 1883 is a blow at the purity of our social life and the sanctity of the marriage relation: and Whereas, The General.-Assembly, of North Carolina, in each of its sessions held in recent years, has increased the number of causes for which divorce may De granted, and has rendered more easy the procurement of such separation; and IT . w j - , -mm' vvheueab, it is demonstrated by ex perience that legislation which encour ages and thereby multiplies suits for divorce, weakens the sense of the sancti ty of marriage and tends to the destruc tion of social and domestic purity: - Now, therefore, be it by the Protes tant Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Worth Carolina in Annual Convention assembled. ite&olved, 1st. That we do view with alarm the attack upon social -and do mestic virtue that is being made by the increasing number of statutory causes for divorce in North Carolina. - itesoivea, zna. mat as a church or ganization we are opposed to granting divorces for any causes other than those prescribed in the Code of 1883. Resolved, 3rd. That the Bishop of this Diocese be requested to appoint a committee of three members, of which he shall be chairman, to be composed of the Bishop, one clergyman and one lay man, to prepare and publish an address to the people of North Carolina, express ing the sentiment of the members of this church upon this most vital question; and that, such committee be further requested to prepare a memorial to the General Assembly of North Carolina. urging such legislation as may be neces sary to restore our divorce laws to their original simplicity. Respectfully submitted: WM. II. MEADE, A. B. HUNTER, KEMP P. BATTLE, H. G. CONNOR, F. S. SPRUILL, Committee. The report having been unanimously aaopteu tne iouowing resolution, offered by Mr. J. Cameron Buxton, was in like manner agreed to: nesoivea, mat a committee be ap n - i rni . . . pointed by this convention, of which the isisbop shall be chairman, to seek the co-operation of the Diocese of East Carolina, the district of Asheville and also that of other Christian bodies in this state for the purpose of memorial iziug the next Legislature of North Caro-' Una to reform the Divorce Laws of this State so as to conform to the law as published in the Codge of 1883 before the recent amendments thereto. . It should be explained that in the Code f 1 j ii. i j . reierreu to noimng put adultery waa allowed as a cause for divorce. On Friday evening last, after the ad journment of .the convention, a mass meeting was held in MetroDolitan Hall. Bishop Cheshire presiding, at which forcible addresses were made by the Rev. Drs. Murdoch, Moment, Tyree and Ivey, Judge Connor of the Supreme Court and Mr. John S. Hendersou of Salisburv. in protest against the new divorce laws: of the btate. Ihe last named gentleman while quite agreeing that no more should be demanded of the Legislature than a return to the law of 1883 expresbed the sentiment of a large-majority of Christian people that whatever might be said of what many regard as a Scriptural rea son for separation, that nothing could under any circumstances, justify the marriage of any divorced person dnring the life of the separated partner.

City Grocer OUR RALEIGH LETTER, THINGS SEEN AND HEARD AT THE STATE CAPITAL Gorman News Bckeai- i Raleigh, N. l, June 13, 1) The most important develonm. . the last lew days ot State interest the announcement by President Kil on the closing day of Trinity infl commencement, that the authortiw TVrf that great institution had dwidwit!! add a large and magnificent Woman". College as an annex to Trinity, for th. higher education of women, and tw fl0G,000had been donated for the nar pose. That, therefore, the voung W)T men of North Carolina are to be civen an equal chance with our young men to secure the benefits of collegiate education at the best equipped institution of Ifarn ing in the State, and surpassed by non in the Sonth. Of this large subecriotu.n $100,000 was donated by MessrshS N. and J. R. Duke, the trustees of the collo pnbwrioir.g the remaining $i; 000. It is p.ooaed to add 14(j(o more to this sum, making the new Wo man's department cost $150,000 j grounds, building and equipment. Trini ty College now has an endowmeut of one million dollars. The attendance at the session just closed was the largest in its history, more than 400 student in both departments. Two of the large graduating class were young women The Democratic State convention meets on Thursday of next week and there is intense interest in the result Nearly all the counties have held their conventions and it is known that neither of the four candidates for governor will have a majority on the first ballot. The friends of both Mai. Stedman and Mr Glenn are claiming that their favorite will lead on that ballot. The Stedman men seem to have the best claim to that distinction) but the rote will probablv be very close between them. It is nai'd that Mr. Turner will hare over 200 vote at the start and Mr. Davidson iu the neighborhood of 100. It will require 622 votes to nominate. It is not proh. able that either candidate will poll over 500 votes on the first ballot. Hut the Stedman men are very sanguine of mc cess and say that Maj. Stedman is the second choice of a large majority of the Turner and Davidson delegates. Home shrewd and experienced politicians here make this prediction today: "The chances are in Stedman's favor, and it looks like he will be the nominee. But if be should not win, then Turner would seem to stand the next best show." The candidate for Lient.-Gov. will be named on the first ballot, unless a new '"Rich mond" enters the field. The Winston men claim that he already has a clear majority, and the indications point to his success. But Col. Morton will re ceive a large vote and his friends do not concede his defeat, by any means, they say: It looks like Hoke and Brown for Supreme Court justices. The Wake county Democratic conven tion was held. here Saturday. Of the 38 votes to which this county is entitled in the State Convention next week Maj. Stedman receives 27 and Mr. Glenn 11. WinBton for Lieut.-Gov., 3G; Morton. 2. Hoke for Supreme Court Justice, 2ti; Justice, 12. Rogers for Corporation Commissioner, 28; ' Congressman Kdw. W. Pou was unanimously endorsed for re-election, and Ed. Chambers Smith ax one of the delegates to the National Con vention from this district. It is said that Mr. Turner is the second choice of mont of the delegates for governor. ine indications point to the probabili ty of another fight in the next LetrUla- ture over the divorse law question. There is much dissatisfaction with the nrewnt law, especially that feature which pro vides for divorce on the ground of abandonment for two years or longer. The Episcopal convention in sesHion here last week adopted stronar men tions on the subject. ibere is pressing need for the enlarire- ment and an improved equipment of the A. & M. College, and it is hoped that the Legislature will next winter make the necessary provisions for both. For in stance, the present capacity is reallv adequate for 400 students, while "J."u were enrolled at the session just eloHed. More dormitory room is badlv needed. Other States make much more lilteral Erovisions. South Carolina, with only alf as many white boys to educate, has an A. & M. College with tA-ice as large equipment and revenue. The Teachers' Assembly at Morehead last week elected the following officers for the ensuinir vear: President. Prof. J. I. Foust; Vice-Presd't, W. T. Whitsett; Secty.. V. D. Carmicbael. Thomas It. Foust was elected Dresldent of the North Carolina Association of Graded School Superintendents.' The Association of Academies elected Prof. M. II. Holt preeident and P. S. Aldridge sccty. and treasurer. A midwinter meeting of thin association will be held in Italeiuh. in February. The annual meetinir of the North Caro lina Bar Association will be held at Charlotte, beginning next Monday. It is understood here that the Demo cratic State Convention will not instruct its delegates to the National Convention. Comparatively few states have done so. About three-fourths of the delegate at St. Louis will be "footloose," and it in bjr no means certain that Judge Parker will be the nominee. If the convention finds a stronger man available he will doubtless be the standard bearer of the party in the approaching contest. Tbe announcement, ix made that the friends of Senator Joneph A. Brown of Columbus will nresent his name to the State Convention for the nomination for Lieutenant Governor. It is learned today that the foor dele gates at large to the National Conven tion will most Drobablv include Mai. K- J. Hale of Fayettevllle, who was recent ly endorsed by the Sixth CongreniMonal District Convention. This is gratifying to his host of friend all over North Caro- lina. Four years ago Maj. Hale received more than 100 votes more than the next highest candidate for delegate, aad he will be sure to eet a rousinir biir vote this time. As "Ben" Aycock said in the 6th District Convention last week, "Maj. Hale has done more for tbe Democratic party of North Carolina and received less reward than any roan in tbe State." It will also be gratifying to tbe pre of the State the bnrd en-bearers of the party to have tbe editorial fraternity Jroperly recognised by tbe election of faj. Hale as one of the delegate at large to tbe National Convention. LLKWXAM. BEST HKMEDY FOR BLOOD SKIlf DISEASES.
