No doubt Southern Republicans
deserve punishment for their sins,
but it does seem there
some limit to their suffering in this
world, else eternity will have no hor
rors for them, says the editor of the
Shelby Star, in writing of Mai ion
Butler's recent letter to the National
League Republican club in Wash
ington, and who is the leader of the
Republican party in North Carolina
and aspires to the leadership of
at least the Southern States if not
for the eutire country. Butler's
letter said the republican party in
many southern states had been cur

Butler, but despised, discredited
and the most abandoned man in the
state and the most thoroughly re
Dudiated of any public official who
has held public office in North Caro
lina. This is the man who rebukes
republicans in the capital of the
nation. For what purpose? Evid
ently to get favor and influence at
the national pie counter. Thus bv
passing as an honest man and a holi
er-than-thou nq doubt, he expects
to get his finger in the pie when the
campaign fuuds are distributed
May bi he hopes to get it in the nat

Two years ago, this paper made
an appeal to all candidates and party
workers to refrain from any and all
efforts to corrupt any class of oui
voting population, and called on all
good citizens to units in an effort to
prevent all efforts to corrupt the
electorate and to do everything possi
ble to see that such violators of the
law were pnuished. We are glad
indeed to have our uptown contem
porary departing from the ways of
the former leaders, and giving such
good moral and wholesome advice.
Good brother, keep up the lick
"It is good preaching;" and what is
better help -see that the advice is
put into practice during the cam
paign and on election day.

Butler, the repudiated, the aban

The idea did not originate with the
young men of North Carolina at
that institution. It may be that the

' thing is certain, some powerful and
unusual influence brought this-
about.. Let him speak to the young

that he will never again after next

soil and that his oice will never

The editor of the Statesville Land

A PUBLIC BENEFACTOR.
President Roosevelt's intense dis
like of "the man with the muck
rake" can heardlv le wondered at,
for "the man has uncovered
many scandals that the Roosevelt
Administration will go down into
history as the most disreputable era
of Republican supremacy. If there
had been no muck, the rake would
have remained idle. Was not e
rake necessary to uncover the In
surance grafting, the postal frauds,
the land frauds, the Panama graft
ing and mismanagement, and would
rresident Roosevelt have prevented
the exposure f these scandals, be
cause it unmasked the corruption or
connivance of some of the highest
officials of the Republican party?
It is no easy or pleasant Uak to
wield the rake but the man who
does stir up the muck in an over-
handed manner, telling the truth
without fi&r, or favor, is a public
benefactor. The fact is, the Re-
poblican politicians had become so
intrenched in power that the graft
ers thought that anything they did,
however vicious, wouid be unob
served by the people, but the man
with the rake with his publicity,
exposed them and the Republican
party which was responsible for
The modern Monroe Doctrine as
expounded by President Roosevelt
is very unpopular with some of our
sister republics to the South of us.
Argentina, entirely repudiates the
right of this country to use the
"big stick" and it seems that Sec
retary of State Root will have to use
more than usual diplomacy to pre
vent a combination on what is
known as the G-lvo doctrine, which
is that the use of force is not per
missible for the collection of debts
contracted with European nations.
The Administration will probably
have to crawfish as it has done on

That Senator Elkins, of West
Virginia should declare in a speech
in the Senate that he is the best
friend the railroad rate bill has
either indicates that the railroads'
do not fear the measure will hurt
them, or that the Senator begins to
fear the people, who will soon have
his case under consideration. His
vote on amendments and on the fin
nal passage of the bill will be close
Iy watched by his constituents.
If the long debate in the Senate
over the railroad rate bill was not

they might be doing something
worse. It's only a week' or two ago
