PASSING OF A GOOD MAN. Woodson Powell Buried Last Saturday in Pittsboro. Last Friday a hush fell upon the citizenship of Pittsboro when it was Jearned that Woodson L. Powell was uead. He was universally loved and admired for his many manly traits and strength of character, honesty and genial, accommodating disposition. For many months he has suffered the tortures incident to a nasal, catarrah al trouble, having undergone several operations and taking treatment in many hospitals. Gradually his eye sight left him and at the time of his death, he could see only a short dis tance, and his sufferings, from the nature of his disease was acute, yet he bore it with a Christian spirit and murmured not. During all his illness he never failed to be on hand when the opportunity presented that he could minister unto others. Following an operation at a hospit al in Durham a few days ago, Wood*- son came home, and it was fully real ized by himself and his loved ones that he could not survive many days.

The ceremony was both beautiful and sol emn and was performed in just such a manner as Woodson Powell would have had it, should he have directed its procedure. In addition to his membership in the Masonic lodge here, he was also a member of the Knights Templar at Southern Pines, and he was both use ful and honored in both organiza tions. The closing of the business places, the large concourse of followers +o his last nesting place and the bounti ful florid attested his popularity and the esteem in which he wa c- V«oM ws 34 of age on t *y la?

PATTISHALL A SUICIDE. Former Chatham Citizen Ends Life at Home in Randorph. William C. Pattishtll, a former resi dent of Chatham county, committed suicide at his home in the edge of Randolph county, about Severn miles north west of Siler City on Wednes day morning, March 19th at 7 o’clock. Mr. Pattishall formerly lived at Colon, in Lee county, and married Miss Fleta Harrington at that place, who was a daughter of Mr. George Harrington. Mr. Pattishall moved to Randolph county some fourteen years ago and was prosperous in his new abode and was held in high esteem by all who knew him. He was reared in Chatham and has relatives and many friends in his native county. He is survived by his wife and two sons, Moody and Sankey and one daughter, Miss Pepsy, all of whom are at home. ! The facts of the ending of his life are distressing, inasmuch # as the act had been carefully planned and was a result of ill health that Mr. Patti shall had experienced, following an attack of influenza some twelve months ago. He was in his usual good spirits on the Sunday before, when several neighbors called to see him, but it was noticed that he was very nervous. Monday he was feeling badly and on Tuesday morning mem bers of his family noticed that he was not feeling so well and he stated that he had been unable to sleep any on Monday night. He ate very little breakfast on Tuesday morning. Mrs. Patishall told him she would go to the mail box some half mile distant and would soon return. He returned to the house and his eldest son, Moody, noticed that he was not at himself and followed him up stairs, and when he became in view of his father he was ordered down stairs at the point of a rifle, with which the father slew himself a few minutes afterward. The tragedy has cast a gloom over the community and great sympathy has been expressed for the bereaved family. He was buried at Staley on Thurs day afternoon.

North Carolina had been raised be yond the reasonable requirements of government; favored reduction of tax es upon the agricultural interests; and touched on various other phases of the state's political life. The convention convened at noon and after chairman Bramham had called A. A. Whitener of Hickory to the chair as temporary chairman, the work of organization got under way. Mr. Whitener was elected per manent chairman, Charles A. Green, of Mitchell county was named as secretary and W. H. Bark ley of Catawba, assistant secretary. The committee on platform and reso lutions then was named. I. M. Meekins of Elizabeth City, introduced the keynote speaker of the meeting, Colonel Thomas W. Mil ler, of Washington City, alien prop erty custodian. Colonel Miller lauded the administration of President Hard ing and referred to much of the criti cism of public officials at Washington as “jackass propaganda.” He declared that President Coolidge stood for the best government and that the public faith while shaken by the revelations at Washington, need not fear that the President would not take the right course in dealing with the guilty. He asserted that Mr. Coolidge would in sist on punishment to the fullest ex tent for those guilty of betraying public trust. A resolution presented by former state senator Marion Butler that the state organization be made to conform with the national party organization caused considerable debate and on roll call was tabled. The nomination of Mr. Meekins for governor was by acclamation no other candidate being offered. In a 90 min ute speech accepting the nomination Mr. Meekins declared that the Repub lican party was the party fitted to lead the nation and that every con structive measure in state and nation al politics had its inception with the Republicans. He criticised every ad ministration of Democrats since 1860 declaring that no platform of Demo crats ever stood for the same things and that always when the Republi cans had regained control they were faced with a condition of financial de pression and a nation with its credit impaired by the Democrats. He assert ed that the administration of North Carolina’s affairs under Democrats was a disgrace to the state and ex pressed his conviction that if all Re publicans stood together the party would be victorious in the state elections next fall. He declared that his platform would be “honest gov ernment, economically administered for the preservation of our traditions and promulgation of the highest ideals and national possibilities to the high est maximum.” “The Republican party has nothing to fear from Tea Pot Dome”, was one of the statements of the speaker, and he also asserted that “there are more men and women wishing to vote the Republican ticket in North Caro lina than there are wishing to vote the Democratic ticket.” PROCEEDINGS OF CIVIL COURT.

He is thoroughly versed in present day af fairs and is thoroughly with conditions in the state, and he will tell you his views on the guber natorial contest. Mr. Bailey has outlined his policies and platofrm for his campaign and these have been distributed thorough ly.
