Our Raleigh correspondent had
h' ears and eyes open when Repres
entative K.Spencer Blackburn, pass
ed through Raleigh a few days ago
en-route "down east," to explode at
a sohool closing in one of the east
ern counties. He writes: The pol
iticians of both parties are interest
ed in the meeting of the Republican
sta'.e committee in Greensboro next
Saturday, avoiding to the ball of
chairman Ro.lins, after he had
been spurred up by Blackburn.
There seems to have been a system
atic attempt made to 6tampede the
'auk and ti'e of the Republicans of
that state w t'l the story that Black
bum's acquittal at his recent trial
means that he is to be exalted over
the heads of all the organization
(whatever "oaganixation" means in
this connection) Republicans by a
popular uprising in the state con
vention when it meets; that Rollins
and the others are to be dethroned
and kicked out and a political halo
is to encircle the 0 7-8 cranium
E. Spencer, who shall be ni de
state chairman and say and every
thing else that he thinks would suit
his 6tyle of beauty.
Today it is rumored that Rollins
may voluntarily retire from the
chairmanship next Saturday, with
out waiting for the convention to
select a new committee, and that
this progrim has been arranged to
anticipate the plans of the Black
burnities who are after bis scalp;
that some strong man satisfactory
to the "organization" folks and not
particularly objectionable to the in
surgents will be chosen by the ptes
ent committee tc succeed Rollins
sad that it will be the purpose of
the follows already at the federal
pie-counter to to try and get a coin
mit (.'' at the state convention that
.vill continue the iew chairman in
th it position. But the brigixle that
his not yet had even it smack from
the panoi,a.'e dispenser is mighty
hungry and enssiu louder and w ith
an increasing number of blue stieaks
every time a third tenner is settled
for another four years. Unless the
new chairman makes loom in the
cases of the few third temers who
have not yet been re-appointed there
will be plenty of scalping knives
after him in the convention.
