It is past time to accept the Te-
suit settle down to business
and wftTR of neftce and normal re-
lations. ' -
We were handed a copy of the
Spencer Crescent, Saturday. It
it a bright, newsy sheet and a
credit to our neighbor town. Here
is wishing Brother Allen and the
Crescent all kinds of success,
So Mr. Taf t, candidate for the
high office of president of the re
public wanted a negro to dine
with him. We have no objection
to his dining a negro, or mix
ing with them in anyway that may
suit his pleasure, but we do object
to such a man occupvrog the of
flee which he seeks.
In the defeat of Hoke Smith,
of Georgia there is a great lesson
to the demagogues and tricksters.
When the people learn the truth
about a man, and this they do
sooner or later, they speak in no
uncertain tones. They seldom do
any one injustice, but are often
mislead by unscrupulous politi
Maj. E. J.Hale, of Fayetteville,
an old-time rock-ribbed Democrat
who has served his party long and
well both in the State and nation
ally, seeks re-election as a dele
gate-at-large to the National Dem-1
ocratic convention to be held at
Denver." Maj. Hale should be re-
elected by all means. Jle; has
served three terms as such and is
probably better qualified to rep-
resent tne btate on such an oc- Wheat has about all been liar
casion than any one else. vested around here and seems to
ine taiK about testing the legal-
itvnf fchft nrnfiihifinn ln.iv io
ishness. The majority by which
the measure was carried is suffi
cient to assure any reasonable
mind that the people of North
Carolina want prohibition and in
tend to have it. If the present
law is not legal the people will
not lose much time in putting one
on the statute books that is. So
nothing can be gained by test
ing or invalidating the law re
centlyvoted upon by the people.
Whether the rank and file
the Democratic party likes it or
nut, it seems to be almost a sure
thing that Mr. Bryan has the
nomination almost in his grasp
now. An effort will of course be
made to nominate Johnson or
Gray, but those who are unfriend
ly to Bryan had as well be pre
pared to yield to the inevitable
with grace and dignity. Unless
there be a moat astounding change
of sentiment Mr. Bryan will be
nominated for the third time,
Just a word regarding the result
of our late campaign over the
question of liquid refreshment.
The State has gone dry by a large
majority. Whether or not we are
pleated with the result, no matter
how we may have voted, when the
law goes into effect let us all do
what we we can, individually and
collectively to see that the law is
enforced in letter and in spirit.
Let us resolve to give prohibition
a fair, honest trial and see what
it will do. If the law results in
good to the people of the State we
want it to remain as it is, but if
it proves to be a farce, if we can
not enforce it, or if we see that it
is an injury instead of a blessing,
the people have the same right to
repeal the law as they had to
adopt it. Let us give it a fair
