BOARD OF ELECTIONS THE DRY PRIZERY J. WILSON MITCHELL
IN CONTROL 0 F SIMMONS
Purport of Late Visits of Mr. Ward
of Washington Into Stokes
Kitchen Without Representation
It is learned that Mr. Ward,
of Washington, who is Senator
Simmons' secretary, has recently
been very active in Stokes coun
ty in the interest of his chief.
Ho has paid several visits to the
county, and a good many people
did not know just what brought
the Washington gentleman here.
Now it is apparent that one
object of his visit was the secur
ing of information that would
lead the Simmons managers to
secure the control of the party
machinery in the county. This
theory appears to be established
by the fact that two Simmons
supporters have been appointed
on the Board of Elections, the
third member being a Republi
can. It seems that the State
Chairman. Webb, who is a Sim
mons man, appointed the elec
tion board without consulting
the county chairman, Dr. Elling
ton. who is a Kitchin supporter,
or the county executive commit
tee, a majority of whom favor
Kitchin. The election board
appointed is composed of Messrs.
S. P. Christian, J. C. Wall, H.
NI. Joyce. The Reporter has
not talked with either Mr. Chris
tian or Mr. Wall, but it is report
ed they are both for Simmons.
The third member. Mr. Joyce,
being a Republican, thus Gov.
Kitchin is without representation
on the board of elections in a
county which is probably !)() per
cent, favorable to his election.

Dear Editors :
11 As the Democratic convention

Hutcherson of Meadows.
Commissioners- D. F. Tillot
son, J. Adkins. Thos. Kallam.
1 Treasurer Rev. Preston
' j Coroner Dr. J. Walter Neal.
Surveyor—G. C. Davis.
We hope that every precinct
'i in the county will be so well
j represented that the convention
! will have to hold an overflow
meeting. We must put out a
'ticket that is not only pleasing
to us, but we must take into
consideration the great number
of good Republicans that want
to vote with us this time, A
clean ticket, in our opinion, will
have an excellent chance of elec

enough, and especially the writer,
at whose house he died, will
never forget the many kind acts
'shown him. It makes the neigh

fear is not very troublesome to
the minds of theTaftsupporters,
who do not believe that the B.

MR J W. HALL.
Suggested as Candidate For th©
Senate From Stokes and Surry.
Editors Danbury Reporter :
I will thank vou to allow me
space in your paper to suggest
the name of a candidate to rep
resent Stokes and Surry in the
next General Assembly of North
Carolina, from the district.
I will present the name of Mr.
.Ino. NN. Hall, of Danbury.
Mr. Hall is a voung man who
has practiced law in Danbury
for several years, and is making
good in his profession. He is a
'true-blue Republican, and would
represent the district with credit
!to himself and the party. There
is no man in either countv who
would work harder in the in
terest of his constituents. A
v ery strong feature in Mr. Hall's
candidacy would he his ability
to harmonize the party, not be
ing connected in any way with
any factional differences, if any
exist. Mr. Hall is of excellent
character, of good education,
and a strong debator. He
would serve the people well,
and would be elected by a large
majority beyond a doubt. We
think that the Republicans of
' Stokes and Surry would make
no mistake in giving the nom
ination to John W. Hall.
