A PRETTY WEDDING.
Ceremony Uniting Miss Sudderth and Captain Erwin. The Asheville Gazette of last Friday contained the fol lowing: The residence of Mrs. M. C. Sudderth on Ha v wood street presented a pretty scene yesterday afternoon on the occasion of the marriage of her daughter, Paralee, to Mr. Robert C.Erwin of Char lotte. The ceremony was perform ed by Kev. Dr. Weaver, pas tor of the Central Methodist church, at the home of the bride, which was beautifully decorated with palms and cut flowers, making a pretty back Lfround for a bridal tableau. The bride was attired in a tailor-made traveling fown of blue cloth and carried bride roses. The attendants were Miss Kate Sudderth, sister of the bride, Miss Mary Lou Bristol of Morganton, Mr. Z. B. Reed and Mr. Love Fesperman. The bridesmaids wore pearl rav dresses with black Gains borough hats, and carried pink carnations. Mendelssohn's wedding march was beautifully render ed by Mrs. Thomas Howe. Mr. Frwin is a conductor of the Southern and isot a widely known family of hijh standing. The "ilts were numerous and handsome. After a trip to Florida, Mr. and Mrs. Hrwin will be at home to friends at the Glen Rock hotel on Feb ruary 5th. The family of the bride are well known in Burke and have a number of relatives in Mor gan ton and the count v. To a Point of Personal Privilege. To the Editor of The News: I lo not ask this space to defend my I Ksition or to ventilate the doctrine that I hold, it is onlv to set mvself riirht i - , - CT j before the people of Burke county. j The Raleigh News and Observer j reporter stated that the delegate from j Burke at the meeting of the Populist I State Executive Committee (and I was ! the only representative from Burke) said in a speech to the committee that 1 the opposition to the amendment al- ready had their arms and ammunition j for the frav. ! ! In the first place, I believe the peo ple of Burke county know me two well to believe that I would give vent to any ; such utterance. In the second place ! anyone familiar with the people of Burke county knows that no such i necessity exists for arms and ammu nition. I have been a citizen and voter in Burke county for over thirty years and at all elections during this period every male citizen 21 years of age who was intitled under the laws of the United States and of the State to vote, has been allowed to go to the ballot box and vote his honest sentiments, and his vote has, invariably, been counted as cast. And I believe I am voicing the sentiment of all the citizens of this county when I say it is their desire that every man, after hearing a free and full discussion of all the issues and then deciding each for himself as to what he thinks best, go to the bal lot box, quietly and without undue influence, and cast his ballot for the men and measures of his choice, and then have that ballot counted as cast. Far be the day when any other condi tion will exist in Burke county or any other county in the State. I will just say in conclusion and it is rather unnecessary that what the rejxjrter gave as a quotation from my remarks at the committee meeting was a falsehood out of the whole cloth. Such methods of conducting a cam paign are calculated to make one tired. RespectfulU', R. A. Cobb. You Will Do Well To call and get prices before buying. We "We ha?e three children.
