When all is told Blackburn made a remarkable display ol strength at the Greensboro con vention. Had not the phantom of the long dead Eastern Repub lican Party been galvanized into some appearance of life and brought up solidly by Skinner, Duncan and other pie eating pa triots, there is not the slightest doubt that Blackburn would have won. Under the Republi can plan of organization counties containing fewer Republicar votes than a single precinct in Wilkes county had to be allowed two votes in the convention. With a few exceptions the num ber of Republican voters in the Eastern counties is insignificant. They have enough to fill the federal offices and that is about all. In spite of the President's broken promises; in spite of the prosecution' against Blackburn; in spite of the fact that it was known that the Eastern element, utterlyfpowerless and contempti ble at the polls, would probably decide the contest for Adams, Blackburn carried the only Re publican District in North Caro lina; Routed Rollins in Bun combe, Holton in Yadkin and Adams in Guilford. The lead ers against could not even sit as delegates in the convention they aspired to control. Men who professed to be able to carry North Carolina against the Dem ocrats wero reduced to the con temptible straits of admitting their inability to carry their own precincts. For cheir victory, such as it was, they were de pendent upon the help of coun ties in which the Republicans cannot elect a State Senator, a representative, a county officer, or even a township constable. What has the Democratic Party to fear from a foe led by such creatures? Does anybody imag ine that such leaders (?) will cause F. M. Simmons, W. W. Kitchin, Lee S. Overman and the other Democratic Captains one moment's concern ? ' 'Politi cal pirates and cutthroats" was Judge Bynum's term to describe the Rollins combination. But what was the secret of Black burn's strong showing? Simply that those sections where the Republicans retain life and vig or have become disgusted with the control of men whose only aim is to get an office, and Black burn was shrewd enough to see it. Fortunately for the Demo crats he lost the day. The diy skeleton of Eastern Republican-! ism cast the deciding vote. The men whom the rank and file tried to shade off are now seated more firmly than ever with their old motto still on the flag; CM fice is everything; and e\er\- thing for office." el bow the Blackburmtes froir. every seat at the pie counter. The Republican Party will be de f eated as usual by 50,000 major ity. Blackburn will go down with the rest. The "organiza tion" will see to that. They want no rival in the control ol office. "Office, office, office. That's what I hear 'em say, of : fice, office, office. Gallop and ga - lop away." A Deplorable Affray. On last Wednesday afternoon a deplorable affray occurred at Henkle's stable in Hickory be tween Mr. A. A. Whitener, an attorney of this place, and Mr. D. E. Hawn. Politics seems to have been the immediate ocea sion of the difficulty. Conflict ing reports have been circulated concerning the origin and details of the trouble. It appears that at one time Messrs. Hawn and Whitener dis cussed the subject of betting a hundred and fifty dollars on tht contest for sheriff between D. M. Boyd, Democratic nominee, and J. W. Shuford, Republican candidate. The proposed bet fell through. Some words on the subject passed between Mr. Hawn and Mr. J. F. Click, editor of the Mercury. It is said Mr. Click related the substance of this con versation whatever it was to Mr. Whitener. As far as we have been able to learn the facts the parties to the difficulty met at Henkle's stable where after some words in reference to the bet, Mr. Whitener is said to have called Mr. Hawn a liar and Mr. Hawn retorted in kind when Mr. Whitener leaped from the buggy and knocked Mr. Hawn into one of the stalls and was on him beating him when Mr. Thomas Henkle pulled him ofL, Mr. Hawn was very badly injured, a blood vessel in his face being burst and his face and chest pre senting a badly batterred ap pearance. Mr. Whitener's friends claim that Mr. Hawn used knucks in the beginning of the fight and that Mr. Whitener used no wea pon. Mr. Hawn's friends de y that he used any weapon and contend that a weapon must have been used by Mr. White ner. Owing to the condition ol Mr. Hawn, there has been no hearing in this case yet. OBITUARY.'' Carrie Alda Elizabeth, daugh ter of Moses and Elizabeth Yo der, and wife of J. Robert Weav er, . departed this life July 20. 1906, at the age of 31 years, 1( months, and 20 days. She wa> baptized in infancy, and at a' early age confirmed a member oi ZiOn Ev. Lutheran church. Sh( was a teacher in the Sundaj - school and organist of her church, and ever took an active in teres in Christian work. In all re pects she lived a consistent ani faithful Christian life, and 1 oi her death-bed she gave evidGric* of her readiness to depart an( be with Christ.

Pursuant to notice the Institute was held in the Graded School 'building. The program was rendered in full save the 'speaker on "wheat culture." The first speaker—Hume on "Soils." He gave the different soils, and how to treat them tc make them more fertile. What to sow on the different soils to Dut more humus in the soil with out which no crop could be rais ed to profit. He especially em phasized deep plowing. The next speaker was our owr Mr. John Ingold on the "pota to." He gave his method in full and answered all questions tc the satisfaction of all. In the p. m. exercises, the first was Mea chamonthe "corn." Have his mathod of preparing the soil; time for planting; selection of sjeds, and method of storing. And while Mr. Jeffreys the "poultry" man was finishing his talk to the ladies, our own Mr. Reuben Propst was called to tell what he knew about the potato. He astonished his audience at his clear and sensible talk on the sa*ne v He is one of Catawba's best farmers. Our townsman A. C. Link read a paper on the shipping and sale of the potato crop—this 1 was brief, but to the point. Then came in Jeffreys, the poultry man, delivering his talV to both male and female. He 1 told his audience how to seled ? from the stock which should be : pure and of one strain, How ■ to select eggs for hatching; oi • diseases and their remedies; anc - finally how to preserve eggs for - eight months. While the farm -1 ers tuwied out pretty well—less ■ than seventy-five, yet there » ought to have been a representa tion of not less than three hun • dred. Mr. Hume insisted at the • close that every farmer presenl f be a committee of one to solici! e half dozen of his neighbors tc 1 come with him next year. These s Institutes would do much towarc • elevating and dignify farming, a if the farmers would interest ? themselves in them. It is nol - possible that any farmers or oth • ers to go away without a gooc idea or thought, if put to prac n tice would amply repay them.
