THE HJ5NlEliSON GOLD JLEAF THURSDAY, JANUAllY 27, 1910.
The Gold Leaf. ESTABLISHED 1881. -I5Y- THAD R. MANNING. THURSDAY, JANUARY 27, 19L0. The General Assembly of Virginia on Tuesday formally re-elected Hon. John W. Danifl for the fifth time, to the United States Senate. Virginians are by John V. Daniel as North Car olinians were by Zebulon R. Vance, and as long as the "Lame Lion" will serve them no one else need cherish the hope of succeeding him in the Senate or in the affections of the peo ple of the Old Dominion. (jor. KiTCHLV has appointed A. M. Star-k of Monroe, solicitor of the eighth district to succeed L. D. Rob inson, resigned. W. D. Siler of Chat ham county, was the only other as pirant. Roth had strong endorse ments. Mr. Stack has never sought public office, but has devoted himself strictly to the practice of his profes sion, in which he has distinguished himself as an able and untiring ad vocate. As mentioned already Farmers' and Women's Institutes will be held in Vance county, at Middleburg and Bona Vista school house, Bear Pond, on Wednesday and Thursday, Febru ary 2nd and 3rd. All farmers and their wives, sous and daughters and all others interested in farming and the betterment of the farm homes, are urged to attend these meetings and join in the discussions. This is n day of progress and learning and the betterment of conditions on the farm and in the home should be of first consideration. AGAINST GOVERNMENT AS JOB PRINTER. Press associations and printers' or ganizations throughout the country are making a strenuous fight against being forced into competition with the United States Government aa job printer. Resolutions have been adopted opposing the practice of Uncle Sam in furnishing printed en velopes at practically no cost above the stampt and plain envelopes. Fol lowing is a bill which was introduced during the Special Session of Con gress by Hon. W. E. Ton Velle, of the Fourth Ohio district, and it ought to become a Jaw: A BILL Prohibiting the printing of certain matter on stamped envelopes and the sale thereof. He it enacted hy the Senate and House of Rejresensatives of the I 'nited St a tes of A nieriea. in Congress assembled, That from and after the approval of this Act, it shall be unlawful for the Post-Office Department, or any officer, head of bureau, or chief of di vision thereof, to print or have printed, or sell or offer to sell any stamped envelope bearing upon it a printed direction giving the name of any individual, firm, or corapanj', or any number of any post-office box or drawer, or any street uumber or the name of any building to which it shall be returned if uncalled for or undelivered: Provided, That this shall uot apply to those envelopes printed with a return card left blank as to name, address, box, drawer, street number, or building, and which only give the name of the town or city, with the State, district or Ter ritory. About that Proposed Ncn Partisan Local Option Mass Meeting. To the (ioM Loaf. The comments of the AVilmingtou Star regarding the informal meeting held on the 8th inst. by citizens of Vance, with the view of calling a non-partisan local option mass meeting, to be held the fourth Saturday in February, (the 2Gth) deserves a passing notice. The Star, it Beems, deprecates the movement and thinks it an inopportune time to agitate the liquor question, while a large major ity of voters entertain the opposite opin ion, and they think the time is ripe to repair the wrong committed upon an unsuspecting people, by demagogues making prohibition their Hlogan to catch the popular vote, upon which to ride into ofhee. The people were given only a short time to have the question discussed, w hile the friends of the measure, fearing prohibition would be defeated, selected the date for an extra election at a season of the year when they knew the farmers were too busily engaged to go to the polls, hence about one-half a vote was cast, costing the people 4 0,000, when if the election Lad been deferred until November, prohibition would have been defeated by an overwhelming majority and $ 70,000 saved to the State. So the "saintly demagogues took snap judge ment upon the people, and forced the law upon unwilling citizens. The present law is a farce and a hum bug. Now what is the result? It has created demoralization throughout the State; has enticed men to engage in il licit distuung, creating harvests of blind tigers, who defy law and pay no taxes. Not only this, but the law has created unrest, dissatisfaction and is a promoter of crime. The State is at an enormous expense in prosecuting violators of the law, while the loss of revenue increases taxas on property owners. Yet they have to foot the bills. We ask, has prohibition diminished the consumption of intoxicants? Has it lessened drunkenness? Has it improved the morals ol the masses? i rom what has been witnessed in North Carolina the last 30 days one would infer more liquor was drunk and sold than under the license system, while hundreds of thousands of dollars have left the State, enriching Virginia, and our treasury is being depleted. Is it a creator sin for North Carolina to furnish its citizens with liquor than Virginia? The public demand a change, and will leave no stone unturned in their efforts to erace a law which is tyranlcaland undemocratic from the statute books of North Caro lina, and recover the right to decide for themselves whether liquors should be sold, manufactured or prohibited in their respective counties. This is all the people ask and they will never rest until this object is occomphshed. OBSERVER Best for coughs and colds is Kennedys's Laxative Cough Syrup.

PHILIPS, PAUL JONES, JAMES N. NO II FLEET, JOHN L. BR1DGERS. Letter From Chapel Hill. To the Uold Leaf. Chapel Hill, N. C, Jan. 24, I910.-Na- thaniel Cartmell, the University of North Carolina Track Team Coach, has just broken the world s record in the 220 yard dash at Liverpool, England. Three states claim t artmell, Kentucky, North Cnrolina, and Pennsylvania. He was born in Louisville, Ky., reared in Ashe ville, N. C, and educated at the Universi ty of Penusylvana. Cartmell won the amateur furlong championship in Amer ica and represented America with signal success at the Olympic Games in London. He remained in England to meet all comers and soon won the amateur fur- loug championship of the world. J'ostle, a professional, in the meantime had defeated all opponents in Australia; had maintained his supremacy at the 220 yard dash in South Africa, and had made a clean sweep of Great Bytain. 1 ostle held the world s professional title: Cartmell the world's amateur title. Cartmell challenged Postle who forth with accepted. The international rivals for an undisputed world's title went into severe training with the result that Cartmell, unheralded hy the press and witn odds against him, defeated the mighty Postle and today holds the dual title the amateur and professional cham pionships of the world. His time for the furlong on a heavy track amid falling snow was twenty-one and one-half sec onds which is one-half a second less than the world's record. In a letter to Prof. E. K. Graham, Cartmell says that he will sail from Liverpool J anuary 19th for Philadelphia , and that after a sojourn with his old friend and trainer, Mike Murphy of the University of Pennsylvania, will report for duty at Chapel Hill March the first. Cartmell left North Carolina a youthful bicycle champion; he returns to his adopted State the fastest runner alive at the close of a series of the most re markable athletic achievements in his generation. The following program has been ar ranged for Junior Week: Performance by the University Dramatic Club, Carolina Lafayette ball game, Senior Circus, Intercollegiate Track Meet, Fraternity Hop, Entertainment by the University Glee Club and Orchestra, and the Junior Promenade.
