RALEIGH LETTER .
Raleigh, Oct. 12.—Raleigh and
other people who heard the speech
of Senator Simmons -at Bailey
(and there were over three thou
sand there) pronounce it one of
the ablest campaign addressee and
most convincing political speeches
* they ever heard the Senator make
—and that is .going some, Ijor
while there msy be some more
"eloquent" public men. in the
world, there are few thdt can keep
the pace with our, senior Senator
when comes to a convincing
argument fortified by the knowl
edge of public affairs which he
possesses, largely acquired by ex
perience in that high school of
politics/ the United States Senate.
Senator Simmons placed the re
sponsibility where it belonged
when he explained what effect the
failure of the Republican Senate
to ratify the treaty has had and is
the price of commodi
> ties, for Instance, and when the
purpose of the monied • men of
Wall Street and other "big busi
ness" interests is being repeated
this year, as ofjen before, to so
manipulate the markets as to have
the political effect the Republi
cans desire. The .present situa
tion in the cotton and tobacco
markets was accounted for by the
Senator, in part, through political
machipation of the party that has
always felt little or no interest in
the farmer! of the South. A Re
publican Congress has been in
power fox the two years, yet
they think people are fools enough
to believe the accusation thaUthe
Democrats are responsible for all
the bad things and the Republi
cans sponsors for all the good
things of life.

Great State Fair, and the annual
Rehnion of Tar Heel Folks which

Still Urging Negro Women to Vote,
Notwithstanding the advice of
J. D. Dudley, president of the
agricultural and mechanical col
lege for negroes at Greensboro, in
a statement urging the negroes,
both male and female, to "keep
out of politics this year," qhe
Raleigh "Independent/' a weekly
paper which has the secretary of
the negro Republican State com
mittee for its managing editor,
continues to calf on |he negro
women to- register tad vote. In
deed, the negro Republican com
mittee State secretary is so hot on
the trail of the negro woman voter
that he has called in assistance to
prosecute the purpose to get the
names of as many women on )he
registration books as possible.
This new adtition to the "staff"
is annonnced as Professor Charles
H. Moore, "former State super
visor of rurual schobls under the

had almost allowed the trail to

cajoled into the belief that the
pnrpose of the negro State Repub
lican committee, and Jhe balance
of the negro politicians, toregfstei
the negro women has been aban
doned. The menace is as real to
day as it was two weeks ago. Tin
- only way to secure thetnselv.it
against the bad results of the
menace is for the WHITE WO
MEN TO REGISTER EVERY
WHERE AND IN (LARGE NUM
Ton Know the Price.
It is "eternal vigilance." Th*t
old adage has not been repeakd
ana it is .as true now .as ever.
■ Chairman Warren, of the State
I Democratic committee, who has
I been conducting the campaign ai
State headquarters here, is feel
ing fine (thank you) and he is ex
pecting a record vote for the State
and National tickets on November
2nd. But he is. not taking any
chances, and he is not advisiup
any of his district and county
lientenants Tx> take any.' A politi
cal victoiy is never won until
enough votes are safely in the bal
lot boxes. Therefore there shoulti
be no relaxation of effort until
sundown on election day.
Morrison's magnificent cam
paign in the western counties the
past two weeks, aided by other
splendid Democrats on the stump,
has put a lot of enthusiasm in the
people of thaosection. "No such
campaign, no such turnout of the
people, since the days of Zeb
Vance," is the report made by all
the newspaper men who have beeu
reporting the triumphant march
of our militant candidate for
In the east and in the central
counties, the paramount duty now
is to get the white women to reg
ister and vote. Many will do so
voluntarily, but many more will
thjnk it "not necessary," unless
they realize that point of view is
a mistake. Women as a rule will
do what they conceive to be
THEIR DUTY when !jhey wouldn't
do anything else. Help them to
realize the necessity of voting sod
they will quickly see and perform
their duty. There is no poll )ax
for women and they ar* not re
quired to'present any "receipts."
Just go and register 1 .
Every male voter should see
that his name is on the registra
tion books, for certain, whether
you ore still in the old precinct or
not. You will be worse off than
a blind man at a movie show
November 2d, if in "copying?' the
lists or bv some other mistake
your name has dropped out of, tbe
registration book and you woie
not interested enough to look up
the matter before October 23d.
After that date you cannot regis
ter. When the shoating starts for
Cox and Morrison on the night of
election, the unregistered man
who cast no ballot must have
something wrong with his system
if he finds himself able to join in
the shouting. Moral: Register
today. Tomorrow never comes.
A statesman rounds up the vot
ers by a square deal.

1 . The 19 th Amendment to (he Constitution of the United States

;• The books for registration open on September 30th, and if you

but if we dou't elect H Republican Congress his hands will be.

They will, if you only keep quiet about it.

We are being backed by them now, but you know it is best
for them to keep under cover for awhile yet.
Republicans have plenty of money and you can get it to organ

On October 12,1793, one bundled
ao.d twenty years ago, William
Richardson Davie, as head of the
Grand Lodge of Masons of North
Carolina, with his own hands laid
the corner-stone of the Old East
Building at the University of
Nortn Carolina, the first building
to be erected on the wooded pla
teau where at that time stood
nothing and where now stands the
Previous to that date General
Davie, whose sword had carved
out in the Revolutionary days
enough fame for one man, had
introduced and had helped ma
terially to carry through the Legis
lature, then meeting in Fayette
ville, the bill providing for the
establishment-of the university.'
Re followed that up by heading
the trua|ees' committee which
traveled on horse-back through
Orange.county looking for a suit
able place for the univeiSity,
which had originally beeu ordered
in the State constitution of 1776.
Under the gigantic poplar which
uow stands in the center of the
Carolina campus Davie and his
committee had lunch one day and
were so impressed with the beauty
or the grove that they decided on
the present location.
To Davie as father of the insti
tution honor will be paid on the
127 th anniversary of his laying
the Old East cornerstone. A por

posession of Mr. J. Alwyn Ball, of
Charleston, whose wife, Emflie G.
Frazer, 'was a great-granu-dangh

here before, but during the war
period it became disorganised.
The citizens of tho town have felt
for a long time the need of its re
inauguration, and the church took
it up thru its regular channel for
such community service.
A strong Parent-Teacher Asso
ciation also has been organized in

purpose of this association is to
