TAXATION WILL BE ISSUE
?0? I 6:
R. A. Burch. of Roxboro, Think* Re- M
publican Leaders in North Caro- M
lina Will Stress Local Issues ot
More Than National. hi
Washington, Aug. 4.?R. A. Burch, ai
vice president of the First Nntionsi in
bask of Roxboro, left for home to- te
day with his famliy, after a stay of' e<
several day* in Washington. Mr.1 cc
Burch has been notified of a meeting hi
of Republicans in Greensboro on the h<
7th, which he expects to attend, and ti
which will give attention to campaign, W
plans concerning the fifth district. He R
understands that, among others, the tl
members of the congressional com-' e?
raittee will be present. . I oi
Mr. Burch is under the impression ci
that it will be the policy of the Re-'-ci
poblican leaders of the state to stress bi
' state issues in the approaching cam-'os
paign, devoting only incidental at-|
tnetion to such national issues as the ts
tariff. He says the dissatisfaction
over taxation matters is widespread,
and his hope is that in this his party
has an issue which will enable it to,
gain the 30,000 or more votes which
are needed to change the result in
Expect Millitant Campaign.
" He says the Republican leaders arc
locking to Colonel Ike Meekins to,
conduct a militant and effective cam-,
paign as candidate for governor, and,
he has little idea the progressive
f movement, under the direction of La
Follette and Wheeler, will amount to much.
Certainly, says Mr. Burch. La!
Follette will attract very, few Repub- j
lican voters. He says he understands
it to be the purpose of the Republican,
national committee to take an active
interest in the campaign to be cone,
ducted in the state, and will sand to
the^ state some speakers of national
reputation, men capable of stirring
up some real interst.

3, NORTH CAROLINA
Probably one of the hardest fought
battle of votes took place at Hurdle
Mills last Saturday when they voted
on the proposition for a special school
tax for the purpose of building a high
school building. Both sides were
claiming victory but when the ballots
were counted it was found that the
special tax had won by a majority of
42. There were 310 registered, making
it necessary for the friends of the
school tax to receive 150. The vote
was 176 for special tax, and 112
We congratulate the- good people
of this splendid community for the
manner in which they put this proposition
across. While all will admit that
taxes are high, still when it comes to
schools our people want the best, and
the best can only be had by special

this was a good woman, and everybody
who knew her loved her, and the
entire community joins in with her
bereaved relatives with the deepest
sympathy, but after all we should
take into consideration the beautiful
and noble way in which her life had
been lived and in the final crisis the
wonderful way that God used in ushering
her immortal soul over into -the
beautiful city of God.
On this particular morning just as
the gray light rays were begnning to
be visible over the eastern hills on
a Holy Sabbath morning God whispered
to Aunt Tinie and said, it is

separation was to all visible appearances

none ever can or want to return.
