This is next Tuesday, siiJ the polls will be open from sun up uotil sun down. The November election is the first since we entered the war, and the voters will pass ca the war and it's conduct- for the first time in this election. There are to elect In North Carolina,, one Senator, ten Congressmen, num ber of Judges and most of the Coun tv and District officers. Le jf every loyal North Carolinian vote this year. Our soldiers have been vie torious on the battle fields in France. No one makts the contention that this war is a war being fought by the Democratic party. It is tne peo pie's war, and it is a matter of great gratification that the people of High Point regardless as to party are almost unanimous io. their sup port of the war. v But under our system of party politic, our country has been under the administration of a Democratic Presideut and Con gress while tht war has been con ducted. Right now the crisis of the war. It is no reflection upon any Republican to ask him to vote the Democratic ticket at this time. A failure of the Democratic party to to receive a majority at the polls will be construed by the euemy as a weakness and as a lack of cjnfi dence in our soldiers on the battle fields and in the manner of the con duct of the war. In 1898 our country was aj: war with Spain, McKinely was Presi dent and was running tor re election. The Republicans then urged the vot ers to support the administration, using the argument that lelusul to sustain the President would be con strued as refusal to sustain the war. That argument was used by Theo dore Rooseelt, Ex President Harri son, and other prominent men at that time. We are to vote for a Congress inan In thistilcf fand tir er is urged to cast his ballot for that staunch American citizen, soldier and patriot, Major Chas. M. -Siead-man, who is the nominee lor Corf gress on the Democratic ticket. Let every Democrat go to the polls early and do all he can for him and all the rest of the nominees. Major Steadman has voitd ngnt upon every question and has stood loyal ly by the soldiers and the energetic conduct of the war. The same can be said of the other Democrats on the ticket. It is hoped that regardless of pol itics all the voters of High Point will cast their ballot for Thos. J. Gold, who is one of the uominees of the Democrats to represent Guilford County in the lower house of the General Assembly. Tiie Republicans did not name any Republican from from High Point to run against him, selecting their nominees from the other portions of the County. If he should be defeated. High Poi t will have no-representative inRaleigh in the lower house of the General Assembly Mr. Gold is liked by both Democrats and Republicans, and it is generally believed here that he will get the full Democratic ballot and that a bigger portion of the Republicans will also vote for him. ad HIGH POINTERS TO THE' FRONT.

RUMANIA'S HtROIC 'SOLDIER QUEEN She HadSaid That Her Demobilized Army Would Fight Again Paris .( Special) Queen Marie Rumania's heroic Soldier Queen" wept when the gallant Rumanian army was demobolized by order of the Germans; but she declared it wpujd-not be fof Jong, t bat Ruma nia would fight again. The disbanding of the army of 300,000 soldiers was one of the stern measures forced upon Rumania by tle lerms of Germany's humiliating and uncompromising peace treaty. Emperor William of Germany gave King Ferdinand of Rumania just one month in which to strip his army of all it's power. - ; In a great open stretch of land at the foot of the rugged Carpathian mountains not far from the Austrian frontier the Queen, accompanied by the King and the royal family, re viewed the regiments of officiers and soldiers who had fought so bravely during the eighteen months mat Rumania faced the formidable foes that surronded her. As each division passed along the Jine of march, there were repeated demonstrations, shouts of acclaim, and many marks of affection on the part of the troops for their beloved queen, whom they revere with a devotion almost as fervid as that shown by the French soldier for the memory of Joan of Arc. On the way to the review every inhabitant of the villages through which the queen passed gave her a demonstration so overwhelming and spontaneous that she herstlf ack-, owledged later that it was the great est single tribute she had received at the hands of the people since the beginning of the war. There could r be no doubt even in the mind of the firmest pacifist that Rumania's fight ing Queen had the loyal and whole hearted support of the entire popu lation in her struggle to tave off a humiliating peace with Germany. As the men who had fought on the sanquinary field of Marasesti; which is the Gettysburg of Rumania marched by, each bearing on his breast the coveted -Michael the Brave" medal for gallantry, the queen broke into tears and turning to the king, who stood beside her. said, in a voice that betrayed deep, emotion: "What a tragedy that this mag nificent army must lay down its arms ! Bot please God, it shall not be for long I Germany by her might and brutishness may subdue, but she can never crush the spirit and will of my soldiers. With God's help we will fight again and I pray that the day is not far distant. My sou! will never rest until the honor of the country is vindicated in k the eyes of our allies." Wro. M. Leach, of Trinity, 'lied from paralysis instead of tubercul osis as was reported in last weeks, paper. ' Save,.

Stanton, since May, 1917,1 member of the city council from the expired term of William iPRagan, de ceased, at the meeting of the body last week. Dr. Stanton Jias been serving as mayor pro tern and Councilman John W. Hedrick was assigned this duty in addition to those falling up:o him as .representative from the first ward. The councilmen took no action toward electing a representative -from the fourth 'ward, deferring action until a later date. To Fight Increase in Gas, Rate. Official opposition to the petition of the North Carolina Public Service company to be allowed to increase the gas and street car rates in this city will be offered, the city attorney, Dr. Dred Peacock, having been instructed by the 'councilmen to prepare a . case against the efforts of the company to elevate the rates any higher than they are at present. Dr. Peacock, is ill at present and has been forced to write the corporation commission whiclr is scheduled to hear the prayers of the Public? Service company next Friday for a postponement of. at, least two weeks. Notification of the intention of the company to ask' for" higher rates was late in reaching the officials be cause it came .directed to Mayor Ra gan during, his fatal illness and was several days late in reaching the councilmen. This is mentioned in the letter "of the city . attorney which was forwarded to Raleigh yesterda; . There is one of those parallels in the gas rate argument that is going to b -used. Greensboro is said to; be paying a new rate at present which Is identical with the one charged the consumers -of gas in High Point, Be ing in the same county, and of about the same opinion as . the" people : of Gfeensboro, residents of this city do not relish ' the slightest particle -the idea of paying more for their gas than do their neighbors over Greensboro way. ; WHIT FORGET!
