The United States Civil Ser vice Commission announces an open competitive examination at the following places: Asheville; Charlotte; Elizabeth City; Green sboro; Newbern; Raleigh; Salis bury; Wilmington on November 15, 1913 to provide a register of eiigibles from which to make certificates for filling- vacancies as they may occur in positions re quiring the qualifications of stenographers, typewriter, or stenography and typewriting in the federal classified^ civil ser vice in the vicinity of the places of examination.

Persons who wish to enter ex- aminati; n should applj at once for Form 1424 and apphcation Form 1371 to the secretary of thejocal board of civil service examiners at the post office in one of the cities named. Only those appli cations received by the hour of closing business on November 12, 1913 will be considered. Appli cants should state in their appli cations the kind of examination desired.

Raleigh, Oct. 6.—House and senate Democrats in caucus to night voted unanimously to ac cept the proposition submitted by the carriers for a settlement of the western rates, voted 40 to 87 against creating two new members to the corporatiou com mission and voted unanimously to provide the commission with a rate expert. This action was taken after the governor, speci’i ally iniited to address the cau cus advocated the addition of two new members as a great achievment, but not as a reflection on the commission, whose members he gave full credit for their work in a great achievement. The action of the caucus is not bind ing, but it probably represents the sentiment of the legislature. Craig To Speak At Friendship District Fair. ‘ ^'■"'^ngton, N. C.

At the rate students are still entering school it will not be long before every avaible room will be occupied. In the Iswt few days students have regis tered from Rockingham, Ala mance, and Guilford counties in this state and from Va., S. C., and Ga. A most interesting sermon was delivered before the students unday evening by Rev. Robert E. Redding on The New Life of the Christian. An entertainment is being prepared by the Star Literary Circle to be griven October 31st. M. S. Stone of Thomasville, and T. W. King spent Sunday here with their sons who are students. J. E. Webb of Chicago who is representing the A. N. Marquis Co., in the south spent Friday’ night here. Founder’s Day at the State Normal College in Greensboro was attended last Saturday by Dr. W. T. Whitsett who reports a most excellent address by Hon. John H. Small who spoke on the work of the late Dr. Chas. D, M elver. Several of the Davidson county students went down to Thomas ville last Saturday to be p-^igent at the celebration of Every i>ody’s Day.

The probate settle ment of the freight rate situa tion with satisfaction to the gov ernor what the politicians call “position. ” First he is a wes tern man, and the west is entit led to the senator, the east hav ing one in Senator Simniong*,; Second, Governor Craig has many strong friends who did not approve of the way Senator Ov erman stood off in the last con test and allowed Congressman Claud Kitchen to use his name in an effort to injure the senior senator. Third, Governor Craig w ill emerjge from the rate fight a ^reat big man, or he will not. ii he gets through the fjght with credit to himself and his auiiiinistration—and his friends bujf there is no doubt of this—he will be in the position to reap most from the field. The Gov ernor was the first state execu tive ever to start something really looking to a settlement of freight rates. None of the other governors made a beginning in that line. Representative E. J. Justice of Guilford has been a fighter, too, but it is apparent on its face that he would not have the posi tion occupied by Governor Craig. The governor in his message beat Mr. Justice to freight rates, and through the corporation com mission, Mr. Craig has secured a proposition that he believes is a start in the right direction. The other commission failed. ^^Ihe Little Millionaire “The Little Millionaire" pre sented at the Casino Friday night without question was one of the best threatricul shows that has visited this town for quite a while. This show presented to the people good clesn amusement which would come as near satis fying the persons who are look ing for amusement as is general ly-found. In connection with the blay quite a number of songs were used, eacL making a hit by being used at the prper time. Roman Catholic. He may not wear a crucifix and he ma y not attend mass, but he is the. avow ed champion of a policy more conductive to the spread of the Catholic religion than a south east Georgia swamp ia to the propagation of mosquitoes. “By their fruits ye shall know them.’’ “By throwing down the tariff bars and inviting the nations of the earth to come in to the United States with their cheap wares and merchandise, he in like manner, invites the cheap emigrant, because it is an invariable rule that emigration follows the tide' of trade, and three-fourths of the emigrants to this country are Roman Catho lics. And again, we are bound to admit that Free Trade means that the American manufacturer, to hold his own, will resort to cheaper labor, thus driving out the higher priced workman and filling their places with cheapen labor from the old coun tries, thus will the mills, mines and factories gradually be filled with immigrant labor whiie the American workingman will be driven into other lines of employ ment. We have noted how rail road and coal companies during the times of high wages, resort to the method of importing for- einers because they will work cheaper than Americans. Thus, Free Trade, in less than five years, will add at least a half million Catholics to our popula tion. And no one doubts for a minute that President Wilson is the strongest antagonist of the Protective Tariff idea in the known world. We have no doubt but that Woodrow Wilson would get down on his allfours and kiss the pope's ingrowing toe nail if he thought that would permanently establish Free Trade in the United States. At any rate, we know he was so deter mined to show partialitv to Rome that he selected and appointed a Roman Catholic as his private secretary, thus ignoring over twenty million communicants of the Protestant churches and singled out a m.an from an or ganization that cast less than a million votes. Thus summed up, we see that Free Trade Roman and Cathol icism go hand in hand. Protec tion is a patriotic protest of Am erican people against the indus trial slavery and low wages of other countries, just as a Protes tantism was a protest against the domination of the Church of Rome. No intelligent man will dare dispute this proposition. So, Mr. Protestand Democrat, if there to be and “R omaniz- ing’, of the United States, and we h«ar it on every side that there is, then just lemember if you please, that Woodrow Wil son is " ‘the greatest Eoman of them all, He is preparing the biggest dose of Free Trade that was ever stuffed down the throats of a majority of the peo ple of this cduntry and he is the first President of the United States t(T place a Roman Catho lic in his private office in the White House to open and read his mail and answer his letters. Yellow Jacket. Romanizing America.

Miss Reinhardt, the county Sup- et visor for white schools read a paper on “Some things a Rural teacher may Do” that was full of practical instruction for the improvement of the various phases of school life. Dr. Harper, Pres, of Elon College, made a most excellent address on “Teaching the Less on.It was clear pointed and practical. The kind of address the teacher could take home with her and use. Many plans for the years work was given out by the Supt. and discussed. The interest manifested by the large number of teachers present 72 in number was very gratifying. It indicates promis ing hopes for a successful school year. The Qlenco school is adding a new room to their house.

Rvari's storv of the govern* or's alleged effort to make p^ace with the leader of Tammany jflaf was his second recital of m tempt on the part of the gover nor to obtain political influence to the trial. Ryan testified Monday that Sulzer had asked him to persuade United States Senator Elihu Root to get the New York Republican state chairman, William Barnes, Jr. to influence the Republican mem bers of the court of impeachment to vote the Impeachment trial illegal. The latter testimony was stri cken out by a vote of the court, 32 to 18 but today on motion of Elon R. Brown, the senate RepU“ • blican leader, the court in execu tive session reconsidered Its ac tion and by a vote of 41 to 14 de cided to admit the testimony open the door for the remainder of the ypun g financiers story. Ryan took the stand immedia tely after the secret session. H& said that Sulzer had asked hins' to obtain the offices of Delaneej Nicoll, attorney for the elfe Ryan, as a “go-betvveen’’ in the proposed negotiations with the Tammany leader. This request^ he said the governor made a week before the impeachmenSi trial began and in the governor’jB New York office. Ryan said he made no effort to see Mr. NicdlL Ryan, did however, make an effort of his own, he said, te- “sound the Republican senti ment.” This, he said, he testi fied, through a friend." It appeared from his testiraoni that his friend had,vseen Chtet' mnn Barnes and obtained frorr; him a statement “that the Resjfc* blican organization would d/' nothing."
