A Tremendous Increase.
In Freight and Passenger
Traffic at Mebane.
The past year shows “a trem-
endeous increase in freight and pas
senger trafic in Mebane. For instance
the passenger traffic for July 1910 for
Mebane was $450, for July 1911 it was
$800, nearly doubled. The freigh
traific for July 1910 was $3,800, for
July 1911 it was $5000. The fall months
will show a still larger increase.
The Leader has been putting in some
good words for Mebane and it is grati

A Run Away Sunday.
Mr. Charlie Cates who lives two
miles North West of Mebane had his
horse to run away with his buggy Sun
day afternoon, but without serious
damage. I seems that the horse was
hitched near a pump in Mr. Erastus
Cook yard when the pump sucked
air, making quite a noise. This frigh
tened the horse and he broke loose
from the post to which he was hitched
and made a dash for nome, this was
run of a mile which he made at
break neck speed reaching the yard
without serious damage to horse or
Mr. L. G. Wilkerson was there and
said when that pump sucked it fright-
aned him so that he came very near
rutming away too.
The good blacksmith says the time
to strike is when the iron is hot. When
two pieces of iron has a welding heat
if you put them together and strike
them they will stick. Towns, and
cities like individual have there tides
of good fortunes, and as Colonel Shake-
spear, remarks they should be taken at
the flood. Something arouses a fav
orable impression for a city, it may be
a new railroad that was badly needed
and is being built, it may be the ex
penditure of money for city improve
ment, but what ever it may be it
creates a favorable impression upon
outsider, and they come in and want
to purchase property of you, and help
you to develop the town. They make
enquires, and find you have prices
j away beyond what common sense sug-
I gest is the value. They refuse to per
chase, and go away, and
you miss an opportunity to secure a-
good citizen, who would help enhance
the interest of the city in many ways,
others come to your city and are
I treated in the same way, and thus
I your opportunities are passing, and
} after a while they are ail gone, and
I you have failed to secure good citizens,
and the investment of money that
would have helj>ed to develope your city.
It is the history of hundreds of places,
you have slighted your opportunity.
The truth is a thing is worth only
what it will bring in the market. The
fictitious value that you put upon it
is no criterion of its worth, other
people know a few things, and you
wait longer than a life time for a
seeker. What you want is a plenty
of good people who have money, these
will help you build your town or city,
and you are using the poorest judg
ment when you permit your selfish
ness to drive them away. Encourage
people to come and treat them right
after they do come. The Leader is
giving you some good straight talk,
and it would hope to benefit you by it.

A Play With Pistols.
Sheriff T. N. Fitch of Caswell drove |
over to Mebane Sunday leaving his 1
horse and buggy at the stables of Mr.
M. B. Miles. After leaving he rem
embered that he had left his pistol in
the buggy and asked Mr. Miles to
look after it for him. Mr. Miles going
to the stables found the pistol gone, he
at once with the ; assistance of Roy
Thompson began a deligent search for
it, and soon got on the track of it,
Sunday evening they went in search
of the party who they had reason to
believe had stolen it. They went to
the home of Ed Durham, with a view
of arresting him, and then ran into a
fellow by the name of Jonas Bretch-
law, Bretchlaw supposing harm was
meant his friend Durham,
to draw a pistol on Roy
Roy happen to be a little to quick
for him, and had his pistol in his
face before he realized what was hap
pening, Bretchlaw droped his pistol
behind him, and Mr. Mike Miles pick
ed it up. A search for sheriff Fitches
pistol was prosecuted and resulted in
its being found in a satchel belonging
to a woman Durham was to be mar-
rid too, where it had been placed.
Durham and Bretchlaw were arrest
ed, and Monday tried before Mayor
Shaw, in default of bond they were
both taken to Graham to be placed in
the county jail to await the action of
the grand jurv. Durham on the charge
of stealing and having in his posses
sion a pistol, and Bretchlaw on the
charge of attemped resistance to an of

“Woodrow Wilson, like all broad

Wilson, Presbyterian minister—and
both were strong advocates of person

mittee of antisaloon leaguers waited on
him the other day seeking his sympa

hibition movement, they got poor com
fort. This is the account a Trenton
correspondent gave of the conference:
Governor Wilson made it clear to his
visitors that he believed in local self
government and said that he thought
prohibition should have no place in
politics. He looked upon it as a moral
and social question to be dealt with
separately from the political issues of
the day. So long as he had his v/ay
the governor said, local option or liq
uor selling would never be made an is

wool Bill AGREED TO
Senate And House Con
ferees Have Reached
Doffing their coats and for the first
time in history inviting the press to be
present, the conferees of the two
houses of Congress on the wool tariff
revision and farmers’ free list bills sat
down in conference to compose^ their
differences. Finally they affected a
complete agreement on wool and be
gan consideration of the free list.
The wool bill, as agreed upon, will
be reported to the Senate tornonowby
Senator LaFollette of Wisconsin and
to the House by Representative Un
derwood. They will direct the course
of the bill in those two bodies. As
the House has the papers bearings up
on the bill that body will have to act
The bill was so amended as to re
quire that the proposed law shall take
effect October 1 instead of January 1st
as provided in the Senate and House
measures. The conferees hope to have
the report adopted in both houses, and
the bill quickly started on its course
to the White House, where the Presi
dent is expected to veto it.
Smith and Bailey,
No one can say that it is not the
duty of Hoke Smith,Governor of Geor
gia, to remain in Atlanta in that of
fice, until certain of his policies shall
be carried out, but any one can say
truly that it was not the duty of Hoke
Smith to accept election to the United
States Senate when the obligations of
the Governor’s office forbade him per-
formmg the duties of a Senator at a
The vote on the Farmers’ Free list
bill defined sharply the irreconcilable
nature of the tangle in which Mr.
Smith’s greedy ambition has involved
him. Creditable extrication from it is
beyond possibility. If Mr. Smith has
been faithful to his pledges to his
Georgia constituents and has won their
approbation by remaining Governor of
Georgia, he has sacrificed the regard
of the Democratic party of the Re
public. Holding the governorship he
has seized the Senatorship, clinging to
the steering wheel of the latter while
its engine remains dead Of this con
dition Mr. Smith was repeatedly
advised in advance and the sole rea
son that has moved him to an Inex
cusable course is personal selfishness
—a willingness that his party suffer
that Smith may prosper. Mr. Smith
has won his game, he has beaten his
enemies and he is triumphant ^in Geor
gia—but the people of the United
States have taken his measure. In
time he will have his seat in the Sen
ate, but when he was most needed he
was out of the seat that had been giy-
en him and in the way of any other oc
cupying it. Mr. Smith has won his
game—but what a little game!
As for Senator Bailey, his case,
brings to mind a sometime good hoiw
that has once run away and is never
of any account afterwards. Bailey
has strength, speed and endurance but
he has reached that sorrowful pass
when he attracts attention chiefly by
his antics. Fretful, peevish, chafing,
disappointed and soured, Mr. Bailey
merely strives now to be conspicuous
by errantry. Of proved incompetency
to lead, he refuses to follow, bites and
kicks at those who would pull in har
ness with him and proudly arches his
neck in pretended scorn of the poor
opinion which he well knows that his
fellows have of him.
Smith and Bailey, able, vigorous,
splendidly gifted Southern men, the
intellects of both are prostrated to a
selfishness so small that it is sillinesa
