His SDeeota A Vote Winner
Both for Himself and the
Pariy? pay? Tribute to the
Late J. A- Thomas
The speech of Hon. F. M. Simmons,
here on last Monday was one of the
best delivered here ia many years.. It
waa noted for fts vote winning powers
and for its absence of "mud slinging."
Although he waa not at his best on ao
countof a severe cokl he delivered a
speech to a crowed Opera House for
two hours that hold the attention of
all. His discussion of all the issues was
clear and unmistakable especially that
-of the tariff question. He proved him
self a close student of this important
question and handled it with an abun
dance of information at his fingers
ends. Uo was loud in his declarations
of the opportunities to win in national
politics of the democrats this year and
felt satislied that in Governor Wilnon
they had a safe and sure leader. The
, -fact that even in the greatest Republi
can strongholds Wilson's popularity
was greatly increasing gives Kood cheer
to us.
In reference to his candidacy for the
United states Senate to succeed him
. self he declared he was willing to be
mea^urod by what he had done regard
less of the many charges to the con
trary. That he had Rupyorted the plat
form M' the party in every instinct
With the proper regard for the interest
of the southern farmer, and closed his
speech with the assurance that if he
was rt turned he would fight the battle
of the common people in every instance
in the face of any criticisms that may
be ottered to the contrary.
' During his speech he paid a high and
feeling tribute to one of Franklin
county's most highly beloved sons, the
late J A. Thomas. His remarks a
the 1:1 emery of Mr. Thomas were broad
and far reaching and were inspired by
a long time persona! friendship be
tween them.
The speaker was introduced by Mr.
? F. S. Spruill in a most eloquent a'nd im
^ press ive manner.
Mary times during the speech the
house tfas in a loud roar of applause,
showing that he had struck upon the
right dfceourse and by which . he had
won many votes in this county.
The management of the occasion se
cure' I the Rocky Mount brass band, who
under the direction of Prof. Hailey, f ur
nishi'd some excellent musie for the
occasion. Oas of the largest crowds
that ha* been in Louisburg in some
time, and possibly the largest to hear a
political speech since 1900 when cx-tiov.
Aycocke delivered his speech here, were
present Tuesday to hear Senator
Simnwns, although many failed to hear
h;m from the fact that the house would
not h"ld the crowd.
Our poople as a whole are very much
pleased **th the Senator and expcct

Consplains of Saall Salaries
Paid Bank Clerks, Who Huve
To Dress Neatly and Keen Up
A Good Appearance.
To THrf Editor of The Sun -Sir: A
lawyer of Philadelphia condemned
banks for the small salaries paid when
the bank clerk for whom he was coun
sel pleaded guilty to embezzling $6,500.
This clerk wai a married man with four
sniall children. He was making $12 a
week, out of which he had to keep his
family and maintaiu a good appearance
to hold his position. In making a plea
for mercy the lawyer said: "I feel safe
in saving that he is here as the result
of a mistaken policy on the part ot many
of our banks in aot paying adequate
salaries to their employes."
I certainly do agree with him, and 1
think I would be safe in saying that
the majority of bank clerks that go
wrong do so on account of the small
salaries paid and what tha officials o?
the bank expect of their clerks. They
are supposed to dress neatly, to have
cleuu linen and to look like,;i new pin at
all times.
Most people think bank clerks have a
very easy position and get pood salar
ies. They have the mistaken idea that
when the bank closes at 3 o'clock the
clerks go home. Jost the opposite;
when the doors close, then the hard
work begins. They may have their
work done by 5 or 6 o'clock and then
again they might be required to conic
back at night and finish it.
L would not like to mention some of
the salaries paid by some of our banks,
as it would be a shame to publish them,
they being so insignificant, compared
with salaries paid by other concerns
that do not require as much gray mat
ter as ia necessajy to hold down a posi
tion ia a bank.
Let us hope this will be remedied in
the near future, so that bank clerks
will not be ashamed ef their salaries.

"Hamlet. S. C., Oct. (ith 191'J
| The Franklin Times
Louisbnrg, N. C.
j Dear Mr. Editor:
| The writer had the great pleasure
J last night, of hearing Senator Simmons
make a speech in the interest of his
e&odldaey for the senate. ?
[ Although I expected to hear
j thing worth while, I was astonished at
the powerfull appeal the . Senator is
Xo man, with one particle of the ele
msnt of .fairness in his makeup, who
, will hear the Senators side of the case,
will for one moment doubt the man's
sincerity and lofty purpose. He bad
j made two speeches-previously the same
I day. one at Kllerby Springs and one at
i Rockingham to large erowils and when
I he arose to speak to a crowded house
at Hamlet his roice was almost gone,
I nevertheless, he waded right in aa<i
j made h speech of two hours duration
I ftliat was the most remarkable che
I writer ever listened to. His audience
was very responsive and the applause
I was freqimnt and prolonged. Quite a
I a number of ladies were present and
were every bit as enthusiastic as the
The senator on several occasions
reached tlie heights of the sublime in
his flights of eloqiienco. Not once dar
ing his entire speech did he mention by
name eithet one of his opponents.
He does not temporize or split hairs
but takes the "Bull by the Horns' and
answers fully and intelligently every
charge of opposition. His speech is
clean and statesmanly and ha uses the
most powerful logic imaginable. When
he sits down you feel like he has said
every word that is necessary to con
vince the most sceptical opponent of his
fitness for the position which he is
seeking. The writer has heard the
Governor make his appeal but the
spirit of personal egotism and vainty
which was entirely lacking in the
Senators speech, was so pronounced
in tke Governor's address that it was
positively disgustin*. The Senator ap
peals to a mansjyasoa and intelligence
but the Oovenior makes his appeal to
passion and prejudice. If the Kitchin
partisans will lay aside prejudice and
go to hear Senators Simmons they will
either believe in him, or else, they are
like the scrpitiial hog that "rotnrnedto
his wallow."
Since my last letter to the Times, my
work has taken me to Rowan county,
Davidson, Wake, Randolph, Moore
Simmons is going to carry evory one of
Anson. I will staka my ropatation as a
profit on this and agree to eat old

tion Is aot fulfUed. If the tide con
tinues running as strong, nntil ?taction
day io ths Senator's faro*, as is now
parfaotiy apparent to a blind ma?, not
withstanding McNiochs claims to tbe
eootvMV, Simmons will carry seventy
oouatlee and have more majority than
Kitchin cot* iotn. If I wu as certain
of making my calling and election sure

would nerar have anether uneasy feel

He haa not attempted to answer in an

Two Killings Near Wood's
On Tuesday of last week Gurfis
Keith shot and Rilled Fred Perry near
Woods store. The cause of the trouble
is r?r> t learned but Che ball took effect
in the lower abdomen causing death al

He replied, "If you listen to Mr. Sim
mons' friends they have all the' votes
with ' a few left to be divided with
Governor Kitchin and myself. Governtr
Kitchin Bays that lie has almost every
thing in sight. I am not bragging, but
the situation reminds me of what hap
pened at Kinston a few years ago when
they came near having a race riot. The
white men collected on one corner and
the negroes on another. The white men
fired their pistols in the air and the ne
groes left. Next morning, Mr. Whit
field said to kis servant, 'Ihearthat vet*
ran like the wiad last night.' Sam, re
plied, 'Naw suh. Boss, I did not run
like the wind but I passed them two
niggers who did run like the wind.'
The Judge said that he was not bia^g

School has lost a devoted member. One
that gave Wright promise of even great

of providence. Knowing that God
doeth all things well.
3. That we extend to his bereaved

pray that God may be very near them
In their serrow.
