It seems impossible for North Caro

Butler figuring in it. He ought to be
chained to the Kaiser and both be
taken care of.
We notice that the Anti-Saloon Lea

nominees stand on the question of pro
hibition. for the influence it .may have
on the election. If the way the whis
key question is being discussed in the
State is any indication the voters will
also be glad to get the same advance
information. But we think it would be
for the opposite purpose.

Health and others. The majority of
the physicians, from a practical stand
point. say whiskey is necessary in the
treatment of many sicknesses, and the
general public in their minds are sure
it is a great help. Since there is so

the voters of the State. Mr. Voter if
you have any manhood left for Hea
ven's sake exert it now. Show your
contempt for such a suggestion of
rottenness, by casting your ballot for
the Democratic ticket, which has prov
en itself worthy of your support, and
does not ask for your vote on the bas
fa of a money value transaction. You
know what you think of a man who
will sell his vote, they think the same
of the voters of North Carolina or they
would not try to buy their vote. Let
your answer to the dirty ineinuationa
be the biggest Democratic majority
the State has ever cast.
