SIMMONS. and was nominated for -the Presidency. In those early days, he held a g-ood many Democratic principles. It is the fashion to sneer at Stevenson as being- a quiet campaigner and to draw com parisons between him and Roosevelt. Such are really all to the advantage of the former. There is more sense and lojric in one of Stevenson's speeches then in a dozen of Roosevelt's. The price of coal went up wards by elevator, but it will probably come down by slow freight. The Transvaal war, says Lord Roberts, is over. Noth ing remains except to whip theBoers. Painless surgery is a fact nowadays, but painless paying ot the bills is still an irides cent dream. The New York Sun's vitu perative attack on Robert E. Lee, made it is alleged, with the aid and encouragement of the Republican managers, will undoubtedly revolt thefeelings of the country. The day has passed when votes can be made for theRepublican party by denouncing- General Lee as a "traitor" a "foresworn soldier" and a "common de serter." Mark Hanna has missed his aim this time. Roosevelt stopped off in Washington recentlv and told the President that he thought he would be able to pull him through. The Republican abuse of Robert E. Lee will surely re coil upon their own heads. The American people will not justify Mr. Hanna in smirch ing the reputation of the dead even in the heat of a campaign. Again it is stated that we are to buy the Danish West Indies, paying- 84,000,000 for them. This is simply out rageous, unless, of course, Denmark will guarantee us a rebellion there which will give us some sport for our money. Col. Waddell Out of the Race Wilmington, N. C, Oct. 22. Col. A. M. Waddell withdraws from the Senatorial contest. He ave out the following to day: "To the Democratic Voters of North Carolina: "Illness in my family, requir ing my absence from the State, has prevented me from keeping my appointments to speak to the people in this campaign, and it is now too late to make new appointments, or to change the situation. I therefore with draw from the Senatorial con test. With grateful apprecia tion of the support of my friends I tender my services to the State executive committee in behalf of the nominees of the Democratic party. ( Signed ) "Alfred M. Waddell." Certainly, we will concede that Mr. McKinley has done some wise and statesmanlike things. But it was before he bowed the knee to Wall Street A Voter's Opinion. Davidson Dispatch: Dear Sir: We 'have heard much said about fairness in the Senatorial primary, but the most unfair thing we have heard of is that some promi nent democrats are trying to defeat Simmons with Republi can votes. For a democrat to advise republicans to vote for Bryan so they can vote against Simmons is monstrous. The man who does this may get forgiveness, but he will be long at the mourner's bench. Voter.
