Times, having purchased the same from Mr. John 0. Drewry, one of the capital city's leading citizens. Mr. Drewry re tains a half interest. The Star is gratified to learn that the Times will toon remove into iti own building and increase ita facili ties for newspaper making. This is but evidence of success that has been well desorvcd because it has been won. Our esteemed contem porary is the only afternoon paper that Raleigh has ever had that is of the Times' class. Brother Gad dell has made it a newsy, sprightly, typographically neat paper, and his editorials hare given it a tone that predominates everything else about it. They are written by a man thoroughly honest, sincere, and just. He writes from conviction and what he says on any question strikes in. This accounts for the success which has come to the Times and enables the editor and proprietors to im prove and build np the paper on modern lines. We wish them con tinned success in the fullest measure. TDE TOWN IS STIRRED .. V RE t-lfPP TUB FENDEff. Nothing Like the Dispensary Cam paign Ever Seen in This (food City Before.

A dispatch from Esopns to the New York Times, under date of July 11th, says: It Is also now clearly understood that the Judge will resign as Chief Justice of the Court ofjAppeals as soon at he is officially notified of his nomi nation. The law upon this point, it Is said by lawyers. Is not very explicit regarding Presidential candidates. It stipulates that no man for whom the people bare voted shall hold another office. As It is not the citizens direct, but the Electoral College, which rotes for the President, the law seems de fective regarding the office of Chief executive or the nation. Judge Parker decided some time ago, however, that the law Intended that it should apply to a Presidential candidate as well as to any minor can didates, and he resolved to resign aa soon as he received official notification of his nomination. Senator Elkins, who is the lead ing Republican in West Virginia, is the son-in-law of ex-Senator Henry G. Davis, the Democratic nominee for Vice President. The Washing ton Post says of Elkins: "He will probably be open to offers to speak a good deal outside of West Vir ginia this year." The papers are again mentioning that Roosevelt's mother was a Miss Bullock of Georgia and a descend ant from a South Carolina family. Well, watch South Carolina and Georgia spurn their claim onhla, mothers son. interests for the benefit of his en after the convention assem- at St. Louis Senator Gorman have made a strong fight for jomlnation, but he declined to and asked the Maryland dele- to support Judge Parker as lost available candidate.

Brvan will please let ns know when to take him seriously. We have learned from the Repub lican statisticians that they wonld have a small surplus of $13,000,000 With only two more full days for registration and the election less than two weeks off, the expression at the polls upon the question of the eatab llshment of a dispensary In thls'eity is about the warmest proposition the people of Wilmington have ever gone up against. A few days ago the Stab took occasion to refer to the widespread Interest In the coming event and It was said then that nothing like it had ever been seen here before. This week the situation has Intensified. The people are talking little else: thinking of nothing else, and 'the leaders of the campaign are adapting themselves to the strenuous life demanded by the exigencies of the occasion. As to the result of the election there Is no end of speculation and each aide with confidence Is claiming victory, admitting, however, that the struggle will be Titanic. On the part of the anti-saloon people the campaign is nothing abort of spectacular. Speak ings will be held each night, Satur days excepted, until the day of the election. A brass band has been en gaged to furnish music with a detour of the city on one of the large subur ban trolley cars aflame with light and streaming with mottoed banners. At the open-air meetings barrels of tar are set ablaze and some wag has said that If the dispensary campaign would keep np for any considerable length of time longer, Wilmington, by reason of the home consumption, would soon re gain her former renown aa the greatest naval store market In the world. Even bets in small amounts are be ing laid upon the result of the election. Yesterday, In the course of an argu ment, Mr. Martin O'Brien, a leading anti-dispensary man, bantered Mr. W. B. Cooper, a strong anti saloon advo cate, to lay a wager of 1500 upon the result. However, for some rea son, technical points were raised and the wager was declared off. Voters should bear in mind that there are only two more full days for registration and that the books are open from 9 A. M. to 5 P. M. at the several polling places, desig nated by official advertisement else where In to-day's psper. Thus far approximately 1900 voters are regis tered, Including names placed on the books In the revision by the registrars. A rumor, apparently well founded, went the rounds yesterday to the effect that In one of the largest Industrial plants In the city, employing, more than a hundred men, a placard had teen conspicuously posted, calling the attention of the employes to the fact that while it was not the company's purpose to coerce or intimidate any one in Ha employment, yet the mana gers of the plant deemed It to the mutual interest of ail concerned In the operation of the plant, that a dispen sary should not be established In Wil mington: .All were advised toreglater and vote in the election. fpeiklnr Last Hlght. Hon. Herlot Olarkson, of Charlotte, addressed a gathering of ladles and gentlemen In the Court House last night The crowd was large but not so large as that which heard Mr. Carr the night previous. Mr. Clarkson was chairman of the Anti-Saloon Commit tee which was so successful In the re cent election for prohibition In Char lotte. .His address last night was largely made up ot reminiscences of the campaign there with particular reference to the Mountcastle Incident He declared himself first for prohibi tion and second for the dispensary aa the lesser of two evils. Mr. Clarkson is being entertained at Mis. Price's while In the city. Dr. McKelway, os Excursionists Relied Off Track, Thanked otormsn and Offered to Treat. ' The city was full of excursionists yeaterda and there a greater evi dence ot druutteunesi among them than on any previous " excursion In a long time, though there was occasion to make few arrests. One of the amusing features of the day occurred on South Front atreet. between Market and Dock. On a of the visitors, pretty well top-heavy, was tacking across the street dlivn. nally. All at once he found himself about to loose his feet and began one of those long falls toward a car that was approaching at a moderate rate of speed. The countryman eot In front of the car before the motorman could stop, but . the esr man dropped his fender, scooped np the conglomeration of "booze" and . countryman and rolled It off to one side. .The expe rience . seemed o have sobered the man and jumping to his feet he re marked to the motorman, "Cap'n, I like them there dern cow-catcher you got; I'm much oblige tojoufor yer kindness and If you'll git off that there kyar and come along we'll have a drink together." The motorman had a car load of people and wasn't a drinking man, either, ao he turned on the current, leaving the countryman bowing his thanks as the csr dissp. peared up the street NOBLE GIFT AVAILED: THE MURDERS IN CUMBERLAND.

All the parties, however, were resi dents of Cumberland. Denuty Sheriff Andrews, of Que whiffle, who was In town thia morn ing, gives the following particulars: 8andv Blue and hla wife, who live In Cumberland, county just, about a mile from the Scotland county line, quarrelled last week, and the woman left him and went to her father's house just across the line in Scotland county. Friday night Blue went after her; and as she refused to accompany him back home, he struck her a terrible blow on the back of the head with a stick, breaking her neck, from which ahe died Instantly.
