THE HENDERSON GOLD LEAP THURSDAY, MA11CH 24, 1910.
The Gold Leaf. TIICRSDAY, MARCH 21, 1910. Dainties From Cotton Seed. Charlotte Observer. Secretary of War Dickinson, hailing from Nashville, did an excellent thing the other day when he luncheoned his fellow-members of the Cabinet on bread, cake and pastry made from cotton seed flour. The repast was entirely satisfactory and gave the new Southern product a good boost. Not having seen any cotton seed flour as yet, we note with interest a description which the news columns of the Rome, (hi., Tribune-Herald con tain. Dread made from cotton seed flour recently received in Rome utilizes wheat flour to the extent of fifty per cent. It has a dark color and in ap pearance suggests something half way between graham bread and gin ger cake. Its' taste is exceedingly pleasant, and all who tried it have been favorably impressed. The fact that it costs much less than bread made entirely from wheat flour is, naturally, a strong recommendation. We hope that the popularity of cotton seed flour will spread rapidly. It contains many times as much pro tein or tissue-building matter a9 wheat flour dot's and still further ex ceeds corn meal. Carbohydrates, or starchy matter is not plentfiul, but in these corn bread, potatoes, rice and nearly all the cheapest foods abound. No one could economize in meat so well as the eater of cotton seed bread. We do not believe that it will injure the demand for wheat flour, any more than oleomargarine has Injured the demand for butter; it will, however, pro7ide the public with a new food product of the high est nutritive value and introduce an important new element of money value into a crop which went all to waste except the lint not many years ago. The Anti-Saloon League. p Itnk-igh St ute Democrat. Mr. R. L. Davis of the Anti-Saloon League is out in an article discussing the operation of the prohibition law inNorth Carolina. The most interest ing passages from his article are the following: 'Tasking up and down the State, with an eye and ear always open to learn any truth touching our cause, we are persauded that in some locali ties, at least, the liquor forces are even now at work to secure, through the primaries and conventions, men to represent them in tho Legislature, who will do their bidding. We are not afraid that their efforts will avail anything if the forces of temperance and righteousness are truly vigilant, but I desire to sound a word of warn ing and to urge our men, who love their State and hum mity, to give some time and attei.tion to this subject and see to it tli it those men are nominated who wi:l protect the present prohibition law. If we sit idly by and allow the local option forces of the State to name the mem bers of Legislature and then these members to no to Raleigh and in any sense amend or tamper with the State prohibition law, we can blame nobody but ourselves. Therefore, citizens of North Carolina, 1 desire to put you on your guard. If I were asked to state the greatest need of prohibition in North Carolina, I should answer in a sentence, 'Execu tive officers of nerve and character, who know the responsibility of an official trust and appreciate the solemnity of an official oath.' I am glad to say that in some parts of the State wo find these, but in others they are conspicuous by their absence. Wherever we do not find such officers, the blame rests more with the citizens than with the officers, for the reason that the citi zens have the power to displace one 'oflicer ami to elect another, and if one has failed to meet his official trust, it tho part of wisdom, com mon sense and religion to elect an other at the next election, who will have respect for his official oath and manhood to do his duty. I have learned, us regards the work of detec tives, that jurors are averse to ac cepting their testimony, that even the courts do not invite it, and that wherever used, the regular officers are too anxious to shift the responsi bility that the law places on them, on the detective. I have learned further that the occasional use of the detective causes the violator to be shy of the strauger, but in no way retards him from selling to his regular customers. Await), they know that the detective is on tho field possibly one week in the year, whereas the vigilant officer is there fifty-two weeks, and under these circumstances are much more afraid of arrest and punishment. If city and county au thorities will appropriate money from their treasuries to pay for secret service work, then the detec tive becomes a representative of the government and his evidence means mufli more to courts and jurors. I believe that detectives employed in this way will accomplish good."

WOOD & SOUS, Va Richmond, - Virginia. rj A Lame Political Feint. Wilmington Star. If the meeting on the platform of Wilberforce University, in Ohio, of President Taft, Senator Dick, and the negro president of the University was intended tor political cuusuuipuou to the Buckeye State, we have no doubt the President has by thia time fully recognized bis mistake. The negro president referred to is a Southern negro, born in slavery, and after the war became imbued with the doctrine of Fred Douglas. He maintains a white wife, who is a teacher in his institution. In view of the negro vote in Ohio and the des perate condition of the Republican party in that State, Wilberforce Uni versity wan probably for this reason chonen as a good place for President Taft to appear and make a speech, as showing his sympathy for what he considered a typical negro am bition of the middle west. In view of the President's attitude respecting negro appointments in the South, the plan was doubtless well reasoned, so far as it went, as indica ting that the Southern policy was adopted in the interest of a concen sus of opinion among Southern peo ple, and that in the States where the objection to negroes is supposed not to be so stressed, the negroes were dear to the heart of the Administra tion. We say "so far as it went," because we believe that while laws against miscegenation are sectional, the spiric of the American people against it is universal. The practice is illegal in North Carolina and legal in Ohio. We do not believe, however, that it is any more popular in the latter State than jn the former. The drivel and sentimentality concerning the negro has been pretty thoroughly eliminated from the North and West alike. Exjerience has taught a fal icy which lack of it engendered. It is a very different matter politically to hold to the principle of the negro's rights under the constitution and to openly condone what white men every where have come to consider a crime against both nature and society. If by his action. President Taft sought to better Republican condi tions in Ohio, we conceive that he has blundered egregiously. For every nejrro vote which such a policy might gain, two white votes will be lost. lhis is on the assumption that it will gain negro votes. We think it will even aleniatethem. For in the chorus of disapproval of the President's tacit endorsement of miscegenation, not the least outspoken voices have been those of negroes. It appears, in fact; that Wilberforce College is in financial straits on account of the perversion of Americani deals for which its president stands. What .Mr. Taft appears to have overlooked is that there is among negroes a new sort of race-consciousness not the old and dangerous sort, but the constructive, forbearing and hopeful spirit that aims no less toward keep ing pure the negro strain than ad vancing the intelligence and the for tunes of the race. The better class of negroes see that their salvation lies not in a hope of equality with the white man, but in a self-respect-ina: future for themselves. In the light of this saner view the more thought ful negroes, as well as the whites everywhere, see only shame and hurt m anything like an official endorse ment of the sm against its cardinal tenet. The Ohio situation must indeed be desperate, to have led so sane and lair a man as Mr. lait into so su perlative an error. What Some Folks Drink. Some of the blind tiger liquor sold in Reidsville is ahome-made product, just as it is in other places. Accord ing to the Iteview samples of it have recently been analyzed and it was shown that the decoction was made of potato mash, bluestone, pepper and concentrated lye or potash, its most powerful constituent being amylic or ethlic alcohol originating from rotted potatoes. It goes with out saying that the stuff is rank poison and only cast iron stomachs can withstand the corroding effects of such liquid. If the boys who went down and at tended the meeting of the State Dem ocratic executive committee meeting at Raleigh the other night are telling the truth, it is respectfully submitted that Editor Hammer, of the Ashe boro Courier, must have been testing his remedy for hookworm, for he fell from a top berth of a sleeper smack to the floor, to the great consterna tion of the occupants of the car who imagined there had been a collision, although the car had been standing stock still.

CLARKSVILLE WHISKEY HOUSE, Clarksville, Virginia 15 "BOB" TAYLOR FLAYS HEYBURN Tennessee Senator Assails flan Who Attacked Lee's Memory. In a speech at a banquet in Wash ington a few nights ago, United States Senator "Bob" Taylor, of Tennessee, bitterly denounced Sena tor Hey burn, of Idaho, who recently made a spectacle o! himself in the Senate by attacking the memory of Robert E. Lee. Senator Taylor did not mention Heybnrn byname, but all who beard him knew the meaning of his language. He said he was first and all an American, and be lieved in American ideals and insti tutions, and every State was as much his own as Tennessee. Deeds of noted Americans, he said, were the heritage of himself and his pos terity, and he had often stood by the statue of Grant, whom he admired for his ability as a warrior and for his generosity in peace. "After looking at and admiring the statue of Grant." said the Ten nessee solon, "I continued to the stat ue of another great American soldier, and standing there I wondered how any American, whether in the Senate or out, could be so ungrateful and so ignorant of those Godlike qualities of mind and heart as to sneer at the statue of Lee. "The people of the South honor Lincoln, not only for his great in tellect, but for his great humanity. The men who wore ..the gray are proud to honor the men who wore the blue and met them on the neia of battle to fight out a problem that began when the republic was born. But they have supreme contempt for the cowards who fight those battles now, and make attacks on the grave yards of the South and on the mou uments and statues of her heroic dead." To Fight Prohibition. Rowland Sun. A movement is being started in North Carolina by the opponents of prohibition to work up sentiment in favor of a return to local option, and to abolish the State prohibition law, which was ratified two years ago by the voters of the State by such a large majority. The plea that these anti-prohibitionists are making is that the law is a failure, that it is not being observed, that there are more blind tigers than ever and other reasons. We have no idea that this move ment will amount to anything, but its backers are working hard and the advocates of prohibition should not be too much at ease about the result. A great many able men in the State of both political parties wTere opposed to a State-wide prohibition law and they have never yet become reconciled. We admit that the pro hibition law is being violated so are all laws but this is no fault of the law itself, but of the officers of the law, many of whom like a little toddy now and then so well that they hate to bother the blind tiger, and instead of going and arresting him, they patronize him. Now, there must be no backward step in the cause of prohibition, and in nominating our candidates for the Legislature this year great care should be taken in ascertaining how they stand on this important ques tion. IN MEMORIAM. Mrs. O. T. Blackley (Daughter of fir. and firs. J T. Freeman) Who Died January 18th, ioio. Published by request. 'A loving friend from us has gone, Her voice we loved is still, A place is vacant in her home That never can be filled. 'Yes God has tailed her up above To that bright Heavenly borne. There to sing around His throne of love And to await the Resurrection Morn. "She has gone to that beautiful land of rest, Where Jesus and the angels abide, No more in trouble with the cares of life But crossed over death's chilly tide. "We hope she is now safely landed W here snowy white crowns she will wear, And the gates of the City stand open, To await and welcome us there. "Her memory will be sweet, how sad to part From one we cherished so noble and kind, But God will bless and comfort us all Let's say 'God's will be done, not mine.' "And her dear parents, Heaven bless them, Who'll no more her loving presence share, But may they trust the Heavenly Father, And prepare to meet her there. "She is now walking the golden streets With loved ones that have gone before, Tea, there awaiting ns to come, Just beyond the shining shore. "Not lost, dar friends, tmt we've laid her low, And with loving thoughts stood around her grave, Over her mound the green gross will grow And the evergreens their stately branches wave. ''She was loved by all who knew her, And by her kindness bad lived a useful life, But row she is quietly sleeping 'neath the sod, Free from the cares of toil and strife. "We now say adieu, but not forever. If we trust in the word God has given v nen our trials here on earth are post We'll meet again in that homein Heaven." OXXIE.

Things That Joe King Thinks. Durham Herald. The negro vagrant may be bad, bat the white vagrant is no better. If Mr. Self worked and voted against it he is at least consisteut now. Well, the most of us have nothing to fear from the automobile trust. The paper makers are now on a strike and that is where newspapers will get it in the neck. The man who buys it from a blind tiger is aiding in a violation of thp law even if the law does not hold him guilty. , Prohibition is not the only thins: the party has taken up with that does not square with Democratic principles. Of course the party allowed Itself to be stampeded, but the thing has been done and it might as well make the best of it. Now that congress has taken the matter up we miht as well make up our minds to pay the price and pay no more about it. It is little out of place for the pro hibition leaders in Charlotte to be talking of what the prohibition law was not meant to do. Having gone to the trouble to cet a State prohibition law, it should at least be given a fair trial before there" is talk of doing away with it. The judgeship may not be con sidered an office by the rest of us, but it 6eems that we cannot prevent the candidates looking at it that way. The prohibition law may be wiped out in time, bu$ it would be just as well if the Democratic party would refuse to have anything to do with it. Of course the Republicans will make political capital out of the opposition to State prohibition, but there is no need for the Democrats to help them out. From the remarks of ex-Governor Vardaman we take it that the prohi- DitioniHts have not succeeded in stampeding the Democratic party in ir: - . iVUHtUBBippi.
