And the result is going to be that a Republican will go to Congress from that district again if they don't "quit deah foolin'."

We agree with the Charlotte Chronicle when it says, "'we do not know the cause of his dropping out, but we do know that Durham has lost a good news paper man and one who kept the town humming when there was no one elese1 to do it. It ought not to be any difficult matter for Mr. Rob inson to form another newspaper connection." And th Gold Leaf hopes he may do it in Durham, the town he loves so well and has done so much to build up in these twenty two years he has been engaged in the newspaper busiuees there. Voanz Man la Fit of Anjer Shoots His Step-mother Inf lie tia 2 Probably Fatal Wound, Then Tarns Weipoa Upon Him sell With D sadly Effect Otis Brown and Mrs- J. S. Brown Actors in the Terrible Tragedy. A shocking tragedy was enacted in Oxford Monday, the most awful oc currence that has stirred that quiet town and sent a thrill of sadness through the hearts of the people of Granville county. Young Otis Brown son of the late J. 3. Brown, a well known and respected citizen and suc cessful merchant before his death some years ago. shot and that per haps fatally wounded his step-mother Mrs. J. S. Brown, and then fired a bullet into his own his bead from the erects of whk-h he died immediately. An account says: The shooting took place in the front hall of Mrs Brown's resilience. The yoang man entered the honae and de manded a sum of money from his step mother, which she bad refused him this morning and when he refused this after noon, he drew his pLstol and red three times One ball passed through Mrs. Brown'aarm and breaat, going near the heart, and the third waa fired into the head of the yotmg man and he fell, gasp ing his life out, Soiled by Lis own hand. After beuig shot Mra. Brown fied in terror and fell on the front steps of her neit door neighbor. Mrs. L'annady. Medkal attention waa promptly given and the ball waa extracted, bat she is in a Tery critical condition and internal hemorrhage is feared. Mr. J. .S." Brown died several years ago and left his estate, which was valued at 40,000, to Mrs. Brown-daring her life time, pntting the ntmoft confidence in her abiiitv to manage and take care of the estate, sne naa teen generous ana kind in advancing money to yonng Otis Brown, who waa juat a little over twenty-one years of age. Having advanced him a thousand dollars lately, she waa slow to pay over the demand he made today and in a fit of irritation the trag edy followed. Sirs. Brown haa one daughter jast budding into womanhood and the hearts cf the people go oat to her in sympathy. The deceased left one brother, Mr. John Brown a grocer, of Oxford, and one sister, Mrs. James Floyd, with whom he lived. The whole town is stirred with symypathy and horror at the awful af fair. Lateb Reports later indicate that Mrs. Brown's condition is more critical than waa supposed. It is as certained that the bullet penetrated one lung and unfavorable symptoms are manifested. Social and Personal (.'GEtricwitHi. Mrs. Alex Cfceek entertained the Morn ing Bridge Clnb oa Wednesday morning from ten until twelve.

If you have sympathy, bestow it upon the respectable Democrats of Tennessee who must vote for Patter son or a Republican. "Wadesboro An-onian. In which case it would 1 infinitely better to boose the least of two evils and support a Republican. It is probable that Mr. Manning would not have won anyway, stiil the lies circulated about him had their efrVt. Durham Herald. That is usually the case, people are ready to believe the bad things they hear about a person without ever stooping to question the truth it. An exchange thinks that now Mr. W bed bee is an appointee of Gov. Kitchin the chances of his election are not so good. He rnay be turned down at the polls as others have b-en in the conventions. But the peopW did not turn the others down in th conventions, it was the poli-ti'ian. JUDGE D. L WARD RESIGNS. .Since the nomination of H. V,. Whedbee of Pitt, Hon. D. L. Ward of New Bern, has resigned as judge of Third district, and Gov. Kitchin baa commissioned the former in his stead. Judge Ward was appointed by the Governor some time ago to succeed Judge 0. II. Guion, resigned, Mr. Whedbee being his strongest competi tor for the appointment. Then the f.ght went into the primaries and convention of the district with the re sult that the nomination went to Mr. Whedbee by a vote of ten majority. The resignation of Mr. Ward follows because he does not care tc retain the judgship after the choice of the district manifested in the recent nomination. 'VUif:!ii.vo that one of the dele gates drew a gun. the man who got out of that Asheville convention witii no tnore than h broken arm should consider himself fortunate. Durham Herald. And this too in a Democratic con vention, compo-ed of white men. The shame and disgrace of it. Gov. Km his appointed Judge Pell and he was stood aside. He ap pointed Judge Ward, who waa drop ped at the first chance. He appoint ed Judge Manning, who failed of public endorsement. Is it fatalism, or what? ('harlot te Chronicle. Looks very much like the opposi tion to Kitchin some times called the machine. JIM ROBINSON'S RETIREMENT FROM THE DURHAM SUN. Commenting on the retirement of Mr. James A. Robinson from the Durham Sun, the Herald of that city says: When the paper was enlarged and the personnel of that corporation changed, Mr. Robinson held a posi tion on its and staff has been with it since its initial issue. T'nLs week is the first in twenty-two and more years that he has been entirely ab sent from the office and it goes "awk wardly with him. Mr. Robinson has done local, edi itorial, set type, collected, made up the paper and every conceivable chore about the printing office. No newspaper man in this city has seen steadier service. And in 'giving up his work, he is marrying off the pet ted child of his middle age. In addition to the political habits of mind which we have noted else where, one cause of Justice Mannine'a defeat by Judge Allen undoubtedly waa that the latter had held courts all over the State for sixteen years, while his opponent possessed no such means of formintr an extensive ac quaintanceship. The primaries gave Judge Allen a considerable lead, which the band-wagon instinct easily lengthened into a convention majori ty. Extensive aquaintanceship may have been quite as important as the disposition to down a Gover nor's apptointee, fortified there is always some cause assigned other than this general and usually uncon scious one by the rather pettv ob jection that Gov. Kitchin owed his fit appointee political obligations. Charlotte Observer. State Ticket Named. The State Democratic convention which met in Charlotte laat Thurs day did its work in abort order. With the exception of the contest between Judge Manning and Judge Allen for Associate Justice, and the contest between W. T. Lee, ex-Judge A. W. Graham and John H. Pearson for corporation commissioner, the other nominations were made without op position. I onowmg waa the ticket named: For Chief Justice Supreme Court Hon. Walter Clark, of Wake, by ac clamation. For Associate Justice Supreme Court Hon. Piatt D. Walker, of Mecklenburg, by aec'amaticn. For Associate Justice Supreme Court Judge W. R. Allen of Wayne. For Corporation Commissioner H. C. Brown, of Wake, by acclama tion. For Corporation Commissioner, W. T. Lee, of Haywood. The balloting for Supreme Court Justice resulted aa follows: Judge Allen, o2C.&73 votes; Judge J. S.

Thus far this year the (lass has seem ed to meet with erfnrinnnl anma ! excellent are the prospects for the second or western tnp.
