Raleigh, Sep. 28. The Raleigh
Evening Times, which appeared
in one edition late this afternoon,
contained two sensational state,
ments. The first was signed by
State Senator John C. Drewry,
grand secretary of the Grand Lodge
of Masons, and piesident of the
newspap.-r company, breaking his
silence oT five days regarding the
Toncheis for $6,000 paid him in ten
months, last yea'-, by First Vice
Preeident A. B. Andrews, of the
Sonthera Railway. "
Drewry says that two years ago.
then owning an interest in the paper,
he approached Andrews and asked
him how he would like to see a
large afternoon paper in Raleigh.
Ardrews replied that he would
groatly like it, as The News and
Obeer .er had never treated him or
the Southern fairly, bearing person,
al animosity againbt both, and he
insisted en an impartial paper.
Andrews said he could not take any
stcck but would give advertising to
the value of a few thousand dollars
upon the paper's publishing the
schedules, special notices and such
clippings from other papers va he
might designate, the editorial de
partment to be left entirely to the
RETURNED A VOUCHER.
Drewry says the paper was then
enlarged all this before he had any
idea of being State Senator; that it
was April, of last year, that An
drews paid him a Southern Rail
way voucher for $2,000, which was
turned over to Business Manager,
George B. Crater, and deposited to
the credit of The Evening Times;
that in August, last year, Andrews
agaiu sent another for $2,000,
which was similarly handled, as the
books shew; that late in January
last, after Drewry was in the Senate,
Andrews again gave hiui another
like voucher for the same sum which
was deposited in the biuk. Drewry
says that a few hours later he real
ized that as Senator he might be
criticised for accepting such t
voucher, even though as president
of the newspaper, and so returned
it, and thai it was credited Febru
ary 4tb, as paid back by the news
paper. Drewry denies that An
drews or the Southern Railway
contributed a nickel to his campaign
fond directly or indirectly, and says
neither controlled him in the Senate
j or ever tried to do so and that in
" nearly all cases he voted against the
railways and for the 2 1.4 cent
He says this is a full and frank
statement and that he delayed mak
ing it until he could verify each
The second sensation was the
following, which appeared at the
head of the editorial column:
"A WORD PERSONAL.
