Greensboro has organized a Stead man club. buy four-fifths of the "Mary Ann" Butler Falls Down At Least That is the Verdict of the Unbiased WhoHeard Kis Speech Last Night Seemed Cowed Audience Badly Disappointed. The much-talked off Marion. But ler has come and gone and that he didn't make good in his speech last night at the Pickett ware house is the concensus of opinion. The mighty "Mary Ann" vvaS heralded far and wide and two thirds of the audience went out through curiosity and upon the rep utation he was supposed to have as a speaker. The audience was made up of at least two-thirds democrats. This could be seen by looking over the crovwd, and the applause at no one time came from more than one fourth of the house. Mr. (urney Frazier, republican candidate for the senate, opened the speech-making. While he was talk ing "Mary Ann" sat serenely in one end of the building, surrounded by Mr. J. Elwood Cox, former as pirant for gubernatorial honors; W. P. Ragan, postmaster of High Point; A. A. Holton, assistant postmaster; and other republi a is. Mr. Frazier's speech over, Mr. butler was escort ed to the platform and introduced by Mr. Cox as "Ex-Senator Marion Butler." The above named gentle men, sat on the platform with the speaker with the exception of Assis tant Postmaster A. A. Holton. Butler began his talk by saying this was a peculiar campaign; claim that the democrats were trying to appeal to the passion instead of to reasoning. He attempted to define the good and the bad and harped consiferably on "truth." He seem ed tihmk that "headquarters at Raleilh" had raised the cry, "Mary Aim .Bonds, Boodlers and NegVo," from wie mountains to the seashore SpealPBo; of the democratic platform he said it contained nothing (just exactly what the people thought of his speech), no one understood it and he praised the republican plat form as the greatest thing ever writ ten; that his party was a party of construction, a party of hope; while the democratic party was paity of destruction and despair. He told of had for Kitchin but he found that the governor did not have any courage, that he was in the memor able mid-night caucus hollering with all his might against "Butler and negro," etc., etc. There was sim ply nothing to his speech and the people wondered what had come over him or whether he had been overrated by some people. Anyhow Butler's s.jeech fell flat here, de cidedly so, even several republicans admitting it to the writer. In the audience were a number of colored people and a tew "rooters" who tried to make some noise, But withal it was a very tame affair and it is believed lost the party votes. Butler seemsto know how the peo ple feel about him, at itast how thou sands of good North Carolinians re gard nun. tie nas a whipped ex pression and as one looks and re flects thfct a son of the Tar Heel state would turn traitor to the state that gave him birth, he feels still colder towards him, even though he may be a brainy, shrewd man, of the political wire-pulling, scheming variety. No doubt as a lobbyist he is a success; no doubt it pays him to be such a politician. Anyway Butler failed to make good you only have to ask the ludience last night to find out eight out of every ten will agree in this assertion. tr is a well established fact that Miss Venetia Smith always does things well and the contestant that is plucky enough to land the largest number of votes will be well re ward. It's a $5.00 hat or that amount credit on any hat in the house. NEW ADS THIS WEEK Moffitt Furnishing Company, first C. B. Mattocks, fifth page. N. H. Silver, eigth page.
