The legislature will be called up

selling liquor which now obtains
The board refused to order the
election on a mere technicality in
t he law, according to an opinion
rendered by the city attorney.
The decision of the Raleigh
alderman is based on section seven
f the Watts law, which provides
that elections may be held to de
termine any one or two or all of the
following questions: (1) Whether
intoxicating liquois shall be nianu
factuieil; whether bar-rooms 01
saloons shall be established; (3i

A large crowd met Secretary of
War Taft at the station at Greens

at the opera house at night. The
distinguished visitor was introduced
by Judge Adams. '
Mr. Taft address was little more
than expected. Of course he laud
ed the Republican party in the
South but iu almost the same breath
admitted that it whs not the party
into whose hands to entrust the
government of our south land. He
admits that, his "fellow workers"

are only office seekers. To use his
"As long, however, as the Republi

enter and in the result of whiph
they have no interest, we may ex
pect tne present political conditions
of the South to continue."
In short Mr. Taft declares there
is no hope for Southern Republicans
until the party is sterelized. On

Meeting Held at Greenaboro Adamn In
Chairman tienaatlonal Incidents
The State Republican Conven
tion met at Greensboro Tuesday.
Buttler, Adams, Skinner were there
engineering the machine operation
against Blackburn aud the "Anti
Boss" faction, and contested hard
for the chairmanship which resulted
in a victory for Adams-Butler on
the first ballot.
The convention was marked b
frequent and obstreperous incidents
of a sensational character. An ef
fort to preserve law and order was
only semi-effective when the city
police officers were called to the
aid of the chairman.
One of the Randolph delegates
who returned yesterday morning re
marked that it was a "warm conven
tion in every sense, but we had a
love feast at night, but there is a lot
of dissatisfaction over the state."
Kepiililiciiil Con vent Ion.
The Randolph Republican con
vention met at Asheboro last Sal- j
urdav and elected delegates to the j
several conventions. They also i
passed resolutions which though!
aimed at Randolph and Xoithj
Carolina Democracy, missed the!
mark, entering their own ranks.
They condemn corruption of elec
tions by buying votes and the like,
which is known to be the policy
persued bv Republican Bosses in
the past, but concluded by endor
sing these same bosses as their color
bearers. The following were ap
