With. 1905. at the pott offiee at Salla
bury, N. C under th act of Cosresi
of March 3rd. 1S97.
We nnderstand A. H. Boyden
is now in Raleigh endeavoring to
persuade the legislature to allow
the aldermen to issue $50,000
in bonds to pay off floating in
debtedness. Is it possible?
We occasionally hear of some
weak-minded fellow proudly ask
ing t If you have a good horse,
why swap it for. one whose quali
ties are unknown?'" This is too
silly, if applicable to th? present
mayoralty contest, to receive any
considerable attention. This is
a plea more suitable in the do
main of some despot than in
Democratic America where rota
tion in office from the presidency
down to township guano inspect
or is a cardinal virtue in all par
ties, especially where service is
limited to three terms. Ifwe
must have a phrase of this kind
applicable to the present emer
gency, why not word it thus:
"Being unfortunately the posess-
or of an inferior broncho, why
not swap it for a thoroughbred?"
So little Johnny Julian in a
column article tells bow he and
Walter Murphy attempted to
neak through the legislature "An
act' to establish a R corder's
court for Salisbury against the
wishes of the people, without their
knowledge or consent, without
letting the public know what said
bill contained, without the priri
lege to vote for said official, limit
ed to the city and with an expen
sive salary attached. This he has
fully and freely confessed, but
further, he also confasses, that
whatever virtue there is in this
bill, if there is any virtue in pass
ing "an'act" uncalled for by the
people and merely to satisfy one
or two politicians, has been put
in it by our able and talented
young Senator, Whitehead Kluttz,
All honor to Mr. Kluttz,
We have constantly, steadfastly
and consistently opposed A, H.
Boyden for mayor of Salisbury.
His record of pomposity, indis
creet financing, reckless disregard
of th laws of the lancLand rights
of others, his subjection to per
sonal whims and petty spite, his
traitorous characteristics and
contempt for righteousness was
so emphatic and patent to all of
even slight acquaintance, that
they were the factors which gave
us reason to oppose his election to
any position where even handed
justice should be rightly expected,
to a position whf re all our citizens
would be compelled to go, on oc
, casion for a square deal whether
he had voted for or against such
official. We kn9w that one who
harbored malice, bitter hatred,
wicked demagoguery and petty
- . tyranny could not properly fill
such a position without yielding
to these characteristics more or
less. Th.se things are as true to
day as they ever were, in fact
every scintilla of the above has
been magnified and caused our
original convictions to be strength
ened in innumerable ways. With
the9e things in full view and con
fessed of all men, what are we to
think of men who have opposed
him f or-these reasons aud-are now
supporting him? What are we to
think of any man who wishes to
see conservativeness, sagacious
ness, economy and justice the dom
inant features in our chief magis
trate, giving their support to such
a man? Are they truo to them
selves and the commuuity? What
pliability one's conscience must
have to cry in one breath, "Save
1 the boys T Save the boysl l" and
in the next :c 'Hurrah for BaM
and the bars!" There migW tie
something in the statement that
"10X116 men have no consoienqe."
Mr. YanJerford Calls Attention to Some
Serious Things,' Are They True?
Salisbury, N. C, March 4, 1007.
To the Citizens of Salisbury :
The laws should be fairly and
There should be no distinction
between the rich and the poor,
between the powerful and the ob
scure. Eyery , man accused of wrong
doing should have a fair and im
partial trial, and equal justice
should be done to all.
These principles will govern me
if I am elected Mayor.
Has Mr. Boyden violated these
principles, or any of them?
i propose to answer tnis ques
tion, by giving a few glaring in
stances, out of a great many, of
bis unfairness to those he styles
"his people." his mis-manage
ment of City affairs, and his par
tiality to the rich and strong,
while careless of the rights ofthe
weak and unfortunate. .
A young white man, 28 years
old, of good reputation, (proof of
liis good character is in my pos
session) a cotton spinner in his
blue overalls, and perfectly sober,
was arrested for vaizrancv. taken
. to the calaboose, kept there all
uighahd by Mr. Boyden's order,
was sent to the chain gang, with
out a! trial, and kept there for
over 30 days, in chains and
stripes. He demanded a trial,
BUT NEVER GOT TO SEE MR.
This young man was POOR,
HUMBLE, AND OBSCURE.
Again, a prominent and wealthy
citizen, from a neighboring town,
was arrested as drunk and disor
derly, and was so violent that he
had to be taken, by two police
men, late at night, to the City
Hall. Mr. Boyden came there,
and directed ono of the City fire
men, (paid to stay there and an
swer fire calls.) to leave his post
of duty, and escort this "drunk
and disorderly" home on the
THIS MAN WAS WEALTHY,
PROUD, AND PROMINENT.

and perhaps three, bawdy houses
in Salisbury, pay this government
The City of Salisbury, compar
ed to Uncle Sam. is poor and
weak. Her laws, it seems, are vie

It is of common information that
whisky is sold in nearly all the
bawdy houses in town, every day
and Sunday too, in violation of
the City ordinances. The saloons
pay lice.: Be These bawdy houses
do not. The majority of our peo
pie are in favor of high license,
and want the saloon men protect
ed in their business. To be con
sistent, Mr. Boyden should either
make the bawdy houses pay li
cense, or exact no license from
the saloon men, Does Mr. Boy
den know this? He has been re
peatedly appealed to, in person,
to put a stop to the sale f liquor
in these houses, and has paid no
attention to these requests. Will
he deny this? If so, let him
name time and plac, AND THE
MAN WHO MADE THESE RE
QUESTS WILL CONFRONT
One more instance I A locomo
tive engineer, poor and unfortu
nate, " who had beeu working at
Whitney, was flocked up m the
calabcose a fe nights ago. When
searched, $31,75 was found on him,
and this money the police officer
carefully couuted, and placed in

tii9 prisoner s pocKet. e was
then locked up in a cell, where
both he and his money were pre
sumably safe. The -next morn
ing he was there, but thirty dol
lars of his money was gone.
When lie told Mr Boyden, in the
police court, of his loss, the only
consolation he received was :
If you have been robbed, you
had be ter leave town."
This man was not only poor
and without influenc, but he was
a stranger here. SUPPOSE HE
