UfflMTC' THIRD CELEBRATION.
From 12,000 to 15,000 Visitors in
Salisbury. Gov. Glenn and
Mr. Hawkins the Ora
tors of the Day.
The third annual celebration of
Labor Day by the unionists of
Salisbury and Spencer Monday
eclipsed its predecessors. The
crowd, as predicted, was a record
breaker, and a conservative es
timate placed the number of visi
tors at 12,000. Every incoming
train brought out of -town folks,
many of whom are unfailing on
these occasions and others attract
ed by the State-wide praise of the
way the Salisbury-Spencer unions
(have of doing things.
The morning dawned threaten
ingly. The clouds were heavy
and low, a reputition of the deluge
of Labor Day 1904 would not
have been a surprise. But there
was a rift in the clouds at 9 o'clock
and when the parade started at
9:50 weather conditions were ideal
for a long march. -
Governor Glenn arrived from
Raleigh on No. 11 at 8:30 yester-
day morning and was escorted
to his carriage by Mayor Boyden
and Messrs. R. M. Pendleton and
t. W. Farmer and driven to the
central notel. .
An eager and expectant mass
of humanity lined the sidewalks as
early as 7:30, in their anxiety to
secure a good position for the
, The parade, as it went up Main
Biree was composed of represent
tatives, of organizations, businesses I
and individuals as follows:

The parade formed on North
Main street and .proceeded up
Main to Inniss, Inniss to Fulton,
to Council, Council to Main, Main
to InnissY Innnias to Long, to
Henderson's Park, where it die-
banded, when the ;exercises of the
day were opened with prayer by
the Rev. Dr. J. C. Rowe, of the
First Methodist church. Mr. R,
E. Lufsey m well chosen words
made introductory remarks andpre
seoted Mayor Boyden who ex
tended, in a happy vein, a wel
come to all the city's guests. '
The address of Mr.4 J. B. Haw
kins, a .native North Carolinian,
for years, a prominent figure in
the public life of Tennessee, and
now with the Southern afeSpencer,
waa toe enort or a tninser it is
worth readiDg in full and but for
the lack of space would be pre
sented in these columns. Mr.
Hawkins, just now in the prime of
manhood, has given the best years
of his life to the study of econo
mics and is conversant with every
phase of the labor question. He
traced from its Bource the develop
ment and tribulations of organ
ized labor and declared that the
soiution which gives to all their
Divinely-ordained rights is the
concentration of interests on the
part of the wealth producers.
The speech was as instructive as
GOVERNOR GLENN SPEAKS.
Gov. Glenn followed Mr. Haw
kins in a speech of an hour. The
Governor was in his best vein and
was frequently applauded. He
was particularly earnest wh"en he
referred to the wanton extrava
gance of our national government.
lLet us," he exclaimed, "substi
tute school houses for saloons and
books for bottles." The dese
cration of the Sabbath was de
piored as a sign of degeneration
and the same regard for the rights
0f one's neighbor as self was
emphasized. In fact, the most
telling feature of tne speech were
the admonitions and conclusions
based upon the Fifth Command
The peroration was a scathiDg
denunciation of the idler and a
gpiendid trubute to the toiler.
The speech commanded the closest
attention of the audience and the
Governor was tirne and again ap-
plauded. Among others who
heard m8 Exceilencwas Senator
At 3:30 o'clock, witl the grand
stand comfortably filled, the tour
nament was called. Five entries
were announced, and this feature
of the exercises was milled off
with such zest and snap as to keep
interest at a high pitch. Mr.
John Robinson, who rode a fiery,
branded Western steed ' easily
took first honors. In the three
runs he took nine the highest
possible number of rings. 1 The

making the presentation speech,
The park exercises were concluded
with rather lame wrestling
sparring exdibitions and a beauti
ful electrical display.
For the number of visitors the
crowd was the best behaved ever
seen in Salisbury. So far as any
need for their services were con
cerned the policemen may as well
have been off duty.

SUGAR 8PE1RG8 SH00TI5G AFFAIR
Zeke Young, a Railroad Negro was
Killed and Two Other Negroes
Wounded. The Murderer Cap-,
tnred and is Now
Ezekiel Young, a negro man 25
years old,, was shot Sunday after
noon about 2 o'clock by Whitman
Hardy, a desperate mulatto from
Yorkville, S. C, and died a few
hours later at the Whitehead
Stokes sanatorium.' Joe Ross, an
other negro and a friend of Younar,
was also shot though not seriously
hurt by Hardy, and Hardy him
self received the contents of a load
ed shot gun in his back and right
leg. His hurt is very slight.
There are conflicting stories
about the carses leading up to the
shooting but it is fairly established
that Hardy was the aggressor.
Esquire Joseph Kesler went to
the Whitehead-Stokes sanatorium
to take an ante-mortem declara
tion from Young:, but he was too
far gone to give a detailed
story of the shooting. He did say,
however, that Hardy was drinking
and that he deliberately shot with
out any provocation. Hardy says
1 1 . m
ne snot in seii-deiense and was
running when he hit the two men.
The grand jury having adjourned
he will remain in jail until the
next term of court.
Hardy recently escaped from
the Yorkville, S. C, jail, where
he was imprisoned for shooting
two white men.
Dogs, folks Etc.
lne newspapers are havmsr a
good deal of fun oat of chapter
754 of the acts of the last Legis
lature, which is entitled 4 'An Act
to Prevent Dangerous Dogs From
Running at Large," and which
reads as follows:1
Section 1. It shall be unlawful
for any person, firm orldog or
hitr.n knnwlf tn T7B nricirous or
vicious to run at large: Jprovided,
however, this section shall not be
constiued to prevent turning such
dogs loose from 8 p. m. to 6 a. m.
on the promises of the owner.
Section 2. That any person vio
lating this act shall be guilty of a
If this act applied to dangerous
dogs only it would be a good one
for the entire State, but inasmuch
as it is made a misdemeanor for
"any person" or "firm"
known to be dangerous" to run at
large, it is probably just as well
that the act ppplies to Mitchell
county only, for the courts might
have trouble in determining just
when a person or firm is dangerous.
In Mitchell they doubtless have
some pstablisbed rule to determine
such 'matters. Statesville Land

That there was some eating in
Salisbury is proven by the fact
that the supply of bread at every

trouble occurred at the Henderson

from the park and there are con

Murphy's wounds are not consid

Passing of the Campmeeting.
A venerable American institu
tion, the campmeeting, is on the
wane. It is still far from dead
but those wno know it best per
ceive most clearly that its sunset
hour has come. As the old preach
ers of today recount in the past
tense the experiences of the cir
cuit rider, that pioneering apostle
of Christianity to new communi
ties, so the prtachere of tomor
row will tell on occasions of rem
iniscences of the former glories
of the hilarious camp meeting,
when people "got religion" and
were not afraid to make a noise
about it. Fewer and feer of
the strongest preachers attend the
camp meetings. The more culti
vated church members become the
less taste they appear to have for
this sort of "old time religion."
Plainly, the camp meeting is on
the decline. Philadelphia Press.
