There never has been a eonteat con
ducted in North Carolina that hea
created more individual interact than
the aenatorship. The wiamiai of Sen

more costemptibie, aaean insinuations

If the old aayiag "a lie travels twice
aa bat aa the truth" ie correct, the
truth baa got to do aome tall running to
keep in hollering distance of aome of
the palpable falaehoede that are travel

Simmons. I haye heard that Senator
Simmons had a million dollara to apend
, in the campaign and that Mr. Watte
and Mr. Bogota are la Kalelgh handing

above to give mj readers aa idea of
