The Asheboro Coutier
PRICE ONE DOLLAR A YEAR
Wm. C. HAMMER, Editor.
WEntered at the Post Office at Asheboro aa
'econd C.wa Matter.
A fifty page edition of the Char
lotte News was issued May 20th.
It was a fine effort and contained
much valuable history concerning
the Mecklenburg Declaration of
Independence as well s a strong
presentation of the resources of
Mecklenburg county and commer
cial advantages of Charlotte. It
is an edition of which the state can
well feel proud.
The worst drawback Asheboro
has ever had is that some owners of
laud hold their belongings at prices
unreasonably high considering the
Bize of the town. As the prices ad-
vance the people who want to build
go further out and build and build
on and on further away from the
lands and lots which are hld at
prices beyond the reach of those
who want to build.The result is that
the town has grovn so that no one
hastopaytne prices asueu. xne;
principal part of the town now is
wli-re there was nothing but woods,
nrusn, ami unurs a lew vears j
This is the reason Asheboro grows!
because the people have too much
sense to build the town all crowd-
ed up together in one little place. .
There is world-wide prosperity. '
It is found in England, Scotland j
and Wales and on the Continent. !
You find it in the Orient aud on the j
steppes of Asia; it is in the laud of1
Khedive, in South Africa and iu 1
the South American coontiies. i
Canada was never so prosperous as !
umiv Tha t.n.;' ,nt,i i i

ago in the interest of the trusts and
ccniliiues and against tbe people of
the United States is iesponsible for
the uuparalelled prosperity which
is world-wide. No one thinks so
except the favored classes, the de-
luded, or the two by four editor j
whose editorials are trust written and
sent out by the American Tariff Pro
tective Tariff League.
"Mr. Ragan, treat those bovs at
the camp better. It is hard "there
and I could not have stood it much
longer anyway," were the last words
of young McMillan, who lay dyinr
in a High Point Hospital last week",
from the effects of a bullet which
went entirely through his body
near his heart, and all because he
made a break for liberty and to get
H-ay from conditions which are
.3w'J row" wsgracPful and a shame?
and disgrace. We havej high re
gard for the authorities of Guilford
county. They are humane men who
want to do right no doubt, but coa
dfioa3 have gr(wn np there as jn
some other p?aees, flUd it all comes
from the false idea that guards
have a legal ,'and moral right to
shoot and kill convicts. It is the
duty of the overseer and guards to
keep the convicts and not kill them.
There is no reason for shooting
convicts except in self defence.
Cruelty has been stopped in most
counties and should be stopped in
Guilford county. The use of a
few strong chains, locks and such
other things as are necessary would
make it impossible for a convict to
run and get away.
There is trouble "a brewin", Cel.
Louis W. Porter, whom the editor
of this paper happens to know to be
not only a great wit but a modest
retiring gentleman of finejbusiness
capacity and as well courteous in
his demeanor and bearing, the
friend of Col. O. W. Spencer, one
ofthe most popular hotel men in
the State and an all round good
fellow has made a statement to the
editor of the Davidson Dispatch,
and it has caused a "mighty Jheap"
of trouble. ThDiapatohfays:
-"CofLouis W. Porter, of "Shelby,
North Carolina, passed tnrough this
citv recently and was seen on the
train by a Dispatch man. After a
moment's chat about the weather
and business, the', Col. asked, 'Have
you seen the new depot at High
Point? The reporter nad not and
inquired the wherefore of the ques
tion. " '0." said the colonel, "it looks
wide'as this, car and probably two
times as long. And, say, it's a por
" A portable depot. Colonel?'
What in the world why '
'Well you see he explained, the
Southern is managed by some migh
ty wise men. They look ahead and
I think they built this High Point
depot so that, in case the town ever
went down it might be moved to
Bowers or Jimtown. Two men
are working on it now, hard. In
fact , I never saw two men work
harder at anything in my life, and
it is expected that the house will be
finished in three years."
Brother Harris evidently don't
like this and says Lexington is a
sleepy town, and that the two men
at work on "the alley" are from
Lexington and it is a difficult mat
ter to get a move on them. The
Enterprise says that the "bowling
alley" when completed will cost

For nearly ten years the present
tariff law has protected the trusts
which have plundered and robbed
the people. Many republicans are
demanding a revision of the tariff.
The good times of the present are
brought about by the American
taiiff say the barons and their
satellites, yet that tariff has not been
changed in more than ten year3.
Why is it a tariff law enacted
more than ten years ago should re
sult in no benefit to the public until
many years after its enactment.
The Baltimore Sun was sixty-nine
years old on May 17, and is in our
opinion the greatest and best oi an

wide, the little republican heelers

The counties of Stanley, Rowan
and Iredell have held their demo
cratic conventions and have nomi
nated county and legislative tickets.
Montgomery will nominate a full
county and legislative ticket on
Tuesday, June 20, four days before
Randolph holds her county conven
tion to send delegates to the state
and district conventions. We learn
that the democrats of Davidson and
a number of other counties will hold
their county conrentious a week or
two before, or a week or two after
the state convention which convenes
in Greensboro July 3.
In the past in Randolph it has
been the custom to hold the couven
tiou to nominate a county and legis
lative ticket the last of August or
first of September. There seems to
be a general desire this year to call
the convention to be held not later
than the middle of August. The

the name of II. O. Causey for the
office of Register of Deeds. We all
like the present register, but at tfte
same time we think it is the best
not to keep any one in too long.
Mr. Causey is qualified in every re
spect to till any oftice in the county.
Liberty township has not bad a
county office in twenty years and
I am not sure she ever had one and
you may look the county over aud
you can't find a man that is more
deserving than Cicero Causey. He
has voted and worked for every
Democrat since the war and will
still do so.
It is known far and near that
this township is entitled to this
and we do hope at the next County
Convolution you will all help us
nominate Mr. Causey and he will be
elected by a large majority.
